He’s being called “Moscow Mitch” for two reasons. He blocked efforts by Democrats to prevent foreign intervention in future elections, and he has accepted campaign contributions from at least two Russian oligarchs.
The number one man in the House has also earned an applicable nickname; “KremlinKevin.”
Kevin McCarthy is the House Minority Leader. A better description would be to say that he is Moscow Mitch’s alter ego in the House. It was recently discovered that McCarthy has accepted campaign donations from Lev Parnas, a close associate of Rudy Giuliani with close connections to Russia.
We all know that Trump receives instructions from Vladimir Putin on a regular basis. I am now wondering how many Republicans are indebted to Vladimir Putin and his close associates.
Who is running America? It’s not Trump or his circle of sinners. To be totally honest, they do not have the experience or the intelligence to be in control of the most powerful and prosperous nation in the world. They are incapable of running a lemonade stand without losing money and in need of a bailout.
Meanwhile, the right-wing propaganda machine, Fox Noise, and every right-wing politician who fictitiously calls his or herself a Republican continues to deny the fact that a recent FBI report confirms that Russian and only Russia altered the results of our election.
Distraction and diversion are tactics which are effective among Trump supporters who choose ignorance over facts, but not within a larger group of voters who are intelligent and informed.
It is sometimes difficult for me that prior to 2000 I voted for Republican candidates. That will never happen today.
