The Republican Party has officially approached a fork in the road.
A conservative approach to governance can no longer rely on the stogey, old conservatism of the GOP’s past. The Republican voters repeatedly signal to the RINOs in Congress that Trump’s America First approach is what is most compatible with modern American life; there simply is no other way for conservatism moving forward.
On Wednesday, Former President Donald Trump hit Mitch McConnell with some hard truths after the Senate minority leader criticized the Republican National Committee for censuring two anti-Trump party members.
McConnell on Tuesday again condemned the Jan. 6, 2021 protest at the Capitol, and criticized the RNC for its censure of Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger — two anti-Trump RINOs on the Jan. 6 witch hunt committee.

“Mitch McConnell does not speak for the Republican Party, and does not represent the views of the vast majority of its voters,” Trump said in a statement released by his Save America website.

Much of Trump’s animosity toward McConnell derives from the leader congratulating Joe Biden on “winning” the 2020 election — a victor made possible by massive voter fraud in Democrat-controlled swing districts. The Senate Minority Leader routinely blames the Former President for “provoking” demonstrators who attacked the Capitol on Jan. 6.
“If Mitch would have fought for the election, like the Democrats would have if in the same position,” Trump said in his latest statement, “we would not be discussing any of the above today, and our Country would be STRONG and PROUD instead of weak and embarrassed.”
Unlike in recent attacks on McConnell, Trump refrained from using the “Old Crow” moniker in regard to the leader.
McConnell on Tuesday night made light of the fact that Trump referred to him as the “Old Crow.”
“It’s my favorite bourbon,” McConnell, referring to a Kentucky spirit of the same name, told the Washington Examiner.
The infighting must come to an end if the GOP hopes to secure a winning strategy moving forward. The first step toward harmony, however, is voting out the last remaining RINOs — including Sen. Mitch McConnell.
Only until then will there be any shot to save what’s left of America after Biden and his RINO comrades worked overtime to destroy it.
