It’s been a helluva week for Mitch McConnell. It makes you wonder if he’s forgotten who he works for.
It feels like he’s been the leader of the Republican Senate almost since the GOP became a party in the first place.
When it comes to his dealings with other Republicans, he’s been nothing less than cutthroat, throwing big money against primary candidates that opposed his leadership instead of using it in squeaker races that might get a majority.
He followed that up by using the obscene J6 publicity stunt to stick a shiv between Trump’s ribs by blaming the President for the events of that day — as though Mitch and Nancy weren’t the ones responsible for making security decisions for the Capitol building.
Then he came out with an obscene ‘bipartisan budget’ that was cooked up with Schumer and (presumably) Bernie Sanders with zero input or consultation from ordinary Senators.
Schumer/McConnell are giving elected Senators the Nancy Pelosi treatment: you have to vote for it to know what’s in it.
The Border’s on fire.
People are struggling to buy basic groceries.
Fentanyl is killing more than 100 people per day.
We have sacrificed energy independence on the altar of Gaia.
Our own three-letter agencies are being weaponized against private citizens.
Twitter just gave us evidence that bureaucrats have been actively interfering in elections to help Democrats and hurt Republicans.
But the thing Republicans really care about?
Mitch has his finger on the pulse of America. What you REALLY care about is…
McConnell: "Providing assistance for Ukrainians to defeat the Russians is the number one priority for the United States right now according to most Republicans. That's how we see the challenges confronting the country at the moment." pic.twitter.com/NPmzWRzoz1

What a relief to learn there are no pressing challenges facing our nation closer to home.
His logic is part of the rationale for ramming that $Trillion+ Omnibus bill through Congress.
Pelosi seems to think she’s finishing her term with a big win under her belt. If that alone doesn’t set off any alarm bells in your head, you haven’t got any to ring.
“We are ending a very special session of the 117th Congress with legislation that makes progress for the American people as well as support for our Democracy,” the letter reads. “Please be present for a very special focus on Democracy Wednesday night.” — WashingtonExaminer
Of course, Zelenskyy is making an appearance.
After the public humiliation of having the Sicknick family spurn his handshake, Mitch will be careful to be on the ‘right’ side of this issue.
What’s next for Ukraine Mitch? Pronouns in bio?
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
