  • "Bipartisanship is dead! We made sure of it."

  • uzfire.info/camera/video/j22knINijrdjeYM

  • I despise that senile old fart.

  • The frog face McConnell, whe he blames others it means that he's the one is doing it! 🤔😉👍

  • Sorry, when was this "era of bipartisanship"?

  • Does that mean Moscow Mitch will not work wit Putin anymore?

  • I thought bipartisanship was over when you refused to acknowledge the black guy as President, Mitchy.

  • This is like trump announcing Its time for people to stop spreading the big lie that the election was rigged.

  • Such a blunt commentary... And yet it feels like there is no other way to put it...

  • Vorhees McConnell 2024 Looool

  • Why are we even entertaining Darth McConnellious. When did republicans ever take into account the Democratic opinion?

  • Spot on!

  • Hands up if you think Mitch McConnell is actually dead and they mixed cocaine in with his embalming fluid

  • Senator Joe Manchin III of West Virginia said on Sunday in no uncertain terms that he would not vote for the Democrats’ far-reaching bill to combat voter suppression, nor would he ever end the legislative filibuster, a written promise that imperils much of President Biden’s agenda. The bill, which all the other Senate Democrats had supported and the party had portrayed as an urgent effort to preserve American democracy, would roll back dozens of laws being passed by Republican state legislatures to limit early and mail-in voting and empower partisan poll watchers. The measure, known as the For the People Act, would also restore many of the ethical controls on the presidency that Donald J. Trump shattered. In The Charleston Gazette-Mail, the newspaper of the capital of his home state, Mr. Manchin, a Democrat, wrote: “I believe that partisan voting legislation will destroy the already weakening binds of our democracy, and for that reason, I will vote against the For the People Act. Furthermore, I will not vote to weaken or eliminate the filibuster.” The 818-page bill would end partisan gerrymandering, tighten controls on campaign spending and ease voter registration. It would also force major-party candidates for president and vice president to release 10 years’ worth of personal and business tax returns and end the president’s and vice president’s exemption from conflict-of-interest rules, which allowed Mr. Trump to maintain businesses that profited off his presidency. With Mr. Manchin’s vow, passage of the full For the People Act appears to be impossible, though parts of it could pass in other ways if Democrats are willing to break up the bill, a move that they have resisted. Mr. Manchin’s blockade of filibuster changes makes other Biden initiatives far less likely to pass, including any overhaul of immigration laws, a permanent expansion of the Affordable Care Act, controls of the price of prescription drugs and the most serious efforts to tackle climate change. Under Senate rules, 60 votes are needed to end debate and break a filibuster on policy legislation. Republican and Democratic Senates have chipped away at the filibuster, ensuring that most executive branch appointees and judicial nominees can be confirmed with a simple 51-vote majority. A budget rule, called reconciliation, has also been stretched to pass ambitious legislation under the guise of spending and taxation. Major tax cuts pressed by President George W. Bush and Mr. Trump were passed with simple majorities as budget bills, as were parts of the Affordable Care Act and a $1.9 trillion Covid-19 relief bill this year. But bills that are purely policy oriented are still subject to a 60-vote majority in the Senate, and all 48 Democrats and both liberal-leaning independents would have to align to change that rule. Even if they did, all 50 would have to vote for the voting rights and ethics bill, considering that no Republican is expected to back it. Mr. Manchin said instead that he would support passage of another bill, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, which would restore federal oversight over state-level voting law changes to protect minority groups that might be targeted. He cited one Republican, Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, as a supporter of the measure, which would give the Justice Department powers to police voting rights that the Supreme Court took away in 2013. That decision freed nine states, mainly in the South, to change voting laws without pre-approval from Washington. After the 2020 election, many of those states - and several others - jumped at the chance, powered by the false claim that voting in November was rife with fraud. Editors’ Picks Many People Have a Vivid ‘Mind’s Eye,’ While Others Have None at All How the World Learns About Bosses Behaving Badly How Did a Gay Scientist of Jewish Descent Thrive Under the Nazis? But Mr. Manchin is still far short of the 60-vote threshold he backs to pass even that bill. “I continue to engage with my Republican and Democratic colleagues about the value of the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act,” he wrote, “and I am encouraged by the desire from both sides to transcend partisan politics and strengthen our democracy by protecting voting rights.” If Mr. Manchin believes killing the more expansive voting rights bill would make 10 Republicans more altruistic toward the more limited one, he has yet to show any movement on that front. “There may be a path to 60, but it’s pretty difficult to see right now, on this day at this hour,” Senator Richard Blumenthal, Democrat of Connecticut, said on Sunday. Senator Roy Blunt, Republican of Missouri, praised Mr. Manchin, saying on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that “we need to move forward on election reforms in a bipartisan way. I look forward to being a part of that.” But he was noncommittal on what he would support. “We’ll see what happens with the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and other issues I think we can deal with, and deal with in a way that’s less partisan,” he said. The House and Senate versions of the For the People Act were always something of a legislative Hail Mary. Democrats stitched together long-cherished goals such as advancing statehood for the District of Columbia; changes to redistricting laws in anticipation of a redrawing of House districts after the 2020 census; mandating early voting for 15 days before an election, 10 hours a day; and ending voter identification requirements. Republicans labeled it a Democratic power grab, and even some members of the Congressional Black Caucus worried that its prohibition on partisan gerrymandering would end up costing Black representation in the South. Still, Democrats greeted Mr. Manchin’s words incredulously. The senator has made similar points before, but doing so in writing in West Virginia carried new weight. His colleagues acknowledged the tenor of the conversation would change this week as the bill moves to a formal drafting process. “His fidelity and allegiance to the people of West Virginia is beyond question,” Mr. Blumenthal said. “But I hope that he will recognize equally the responsibility that each of us has to the nation, and we face an unprecedented threat to voting rights and democracy.” House liberals were more scathing. “Manchin’s op-ed might as well be titled ‘Why I’ll vote to preserve Jim Crow,’” Representative Mondaire Jones, Democrat of New York, wrote on Twitter. The White House declined to comment. Mr. Manchin’s opposition to ending the filibuster and backing strictly Democratic bills could have implications beyond voting rights. He supported the pandemic relief bill this year, which passed on party lines, but Democratic leaders are considering passing other measures under reconciliation, including an infrastructure bill that will most likely top $1 trillion. Democrats privately expressed frustration with Mr. Manchin’s insistence that even stripped-down bills would need at least one Republican to get his support. Senators had been working on securing Mr. Manchin as a co-sponsor of the For the People Act, getting the bill to a symbolic 50 supporters, pleading with him to tell them what he could accept. But the senator has effectively given Republicans veto power, saying he does not oppose the substance of the legislation, only its lack of bipartisan support. Mr. Manchin declined to say how he would vote on a party-line infrastructure bill, saying that a bipartisan group of senators negotiating a deal that could get at least 60 votes were “not that far

  • Moscow Mitch should go home before his chin devours him!

  • Mitch complaining about the death of bipartisanship. That's rich.

  • There never has been bipartisanship. This is a war. Us vs them. Simple as that. Life is not roses. Being in control is the goal and we accomplished that in 2020. Let the war wage on.

    • You're wrong. There used to be bipartisanship, back before the Republican Party adopted its "Southern strategy" of deliberately wooing white racists. But that was a half-century ago. Maybe before your time?

  • As they say "FEED a COBRA" and it will "ONLY FEED YOU BACK VENOM"

  • mule pzzz guy

  • Yep, the era of bipartisanship was over the day Moscow Mitch became leader.

  • Democrats have gone out of their way often times to try to show bipartisanship with Republicans by caving to some of their demands, but they never return the favour. The majority of Americans support much of what Republicans constantly try to block, so by pushing pass them, Democrats actually _are_ being bipartisan. If Republicans feel left out, then it's a sign that they're the problem.

  • The era of bipartisanship? When was that?

  • Bipartisanship was over when they found Mitch in a creek in Kentucky and placed him in his holding tank in the Senate over 40 years ago, the man had been there way too long and needs to go. Term limits need to be introduced and they can only get paid minimum wage... that will really change the minds of wanting to stay in there forever like Mitch....remember, Turtles live for a long time 😔

  • All I really want is the chance to fight Mitch in a parking lot

  • Whoa… when did Mitch McConnell die?

  • I think the GQP needs a free dementia checkup.

  • Golden GOP rule- always enquire what a cadre of selfish self-entitled sociopaths wants to do for the good of large numbers of people, then voice your solipsistic concerns like a weasel.

  • Mitch was taking a victory lap with this news conference, not lamenting the state of things as he created.

    • Yeah, it sounded like he was mocking Democrats for attempting to negotiate with them.

  • I often consider myself a not particularly intelligent person. Then I see a person that notoriously refused to put Democratic proposals up for discussion for years saying that the Democrats are not bipartisan. I understand that he be telling the truth but boy does he not know what a tu quoque is ("You also"; an informal fallacy where one defends their position by stating the other side does it as well.)?

  • "Era of bipartisanship is over." "Over?!" When did it _start?_

  • X didn't he recently say that he will do everything he can to obstruct this administration (too)? And now he whines about the lack of bipartisanship?

  • Republicans killed bipartisanship the moment Ken Starr got excited over semen on a black dress in the 90's They don't get to act like they were team players now

  • When Jason has the moral high ground....

  • It was over years ago. This isn't news.

  • It’s his time to go Lord, please.

  • How dumb do you need to be to vote for Republicans at this stage? I mean ...

  • Yeah...he started it. And he looks very self-congratulatingly happy.

  • Yeah. The "era of bipartisanship" came to an end when McConnell swore that he'd stop at nothing to oppose the "Obama agenda" and the same goes for the "Biden agenda".

  • Why in the hell does he not open his mouth when he talks?

    • He's being badly puppeteered by Putin

  • Pretty sure Mitch McConnell ended the era of bipartisanship in 2010. But it's nice that he's finally opening up about it. Maybe he can let Manchin and Synema know so they will go ahead and get behind taking some partisan action to deliver what their voters want.

  • I know that I shouldn't be generalizing but.... why, people of Kentucky, why? Why'd you have to vote him back into office? Were the alternatives (Republican or otherwise) really that bad or worst than Mitch?

  • McConnell will be remembered in history for his totally disgraceful conduct. 👎

  • Remember all that Republican bipartisanship when they were in power? No? BECAUSE THERE WAS NONE.

  • The era of bipartisanship is dead and Mitch should know that since he is the one who killed it.

  • "I'll develop some disease and say i have to resign" -joe biden

    • @Aaron It is the person who asserts by omission of context that someone wants to create a disease who has the agenda.

    • @Godfrey Pigott yeah because someone who WANTS to develop a disease doesn't have an agenda THINK GOD PIG THINK

    • @Aaron Thanks for your admission by omission. You really are scraping the bottom of the barrel in your attempt at avoidance. The fact is you *KNOW* what the full comment was, and you don't want to quote it because you *KNOW* it will ruin your alt-truth agenda.

    • @Godfrey Pigott bro why is your name god pig

    • @Aaron ​ @Aaron You are really desperate to hide from the full quote, aren't you. Why is that?

  • there’s a saying for people like Mitch. dis……..

  • READ THE CONSTITUTION.....THEY HAVE AN OBLIGATION to EVERY SINGLE TAXPAYER....even THE ONES WHO DID NOT VOTE FOR THEM...THESE GUYS neeeeeed to LOOK AT TYHE CONSTITUTION as its THE CONTRACT THEY NOW BREACH....NOTHING is MORE TREASONOUS THAN OUR OWN THWARTING DEMOCRACY FOR THEIR MONETARY GAIN. efff thewm shame shame ticktock

  • EFFRFFR THIS NAZI he BLOCKS EVERYTHING NO MATTER WHAT IMPEACH HIM and LOOK at ALL THEIR TAXES...see WHOS IN BED W WHOOOOOOOOO js

  • Moscow Mitch 20 years "Era of Bipartisanship"... Republican HYPOCRISY Never ceases to amaze. 🤪👍😁🇺🇸

  • Bipartisan negotiations is a delaying tactic. The GQP will not agree to anything.

  • Sign my petition to Manchin and Sinema to modify or kill the filibuster at chng.it/YcgQBcVx

  • Well, Mitch, guess who knifed it in the back and kept twisting the blade until it was dead?

  • It really says something when a cartoon serial killer makes just as much sense as a elected official.

  • The republicans are terrorists that sided with a corrupt coorporate liar, and tried to overtrow democracy. They do not deserve to remain a seat at the table as long as they keep lying to their people and serving as Donald drumpf party. If this was happening in afganistan they would have been attacked by drones multiple times already.

  • Mitch should keep up with the news. Bipartisanship died years ago. And he was the prime suspect in it's murder

  • you're going to hell, mitch. gooooing to hell.

  • What era of bipartisanship??? It’s been awhile.

  • Mitch McConnell, Sr. Obstructionist of the “Treasonous Republican Terrorist Party”

  • Pretty audacious to spend four years dismantling the will of the voters then blubbering on stage about getting f**ked

  • McConnell killed it himself in the Obama years, what is turtle on about ?

  • They've been trying to kill it for years now. Almost refreshing to hear them come out and speak truth for once.

    • @Dahn Again, there is an element of this, but doesn't take in the whole picture. The divisiveness is more along the lines of us versus them. Scaremongering really only works if you can create (and can sell) the idea of an enemy. More to the point, an enemy that looks differently or thinks differently to us. Or to put it another way, ,you're either with us or against us. Race itself matters less in this context.The removal of common ground, or the potential for any other perspective works absolutely in their favor. There is also how the evangelical right treat women, and wish to take away their rights to a decision. Its almost like they wish to freeze time at an idyllic point in time for the "right minded" white folk - circa 1950.

    • @Stu Chatterton Chump has been pushing for a race war for many, many years, and many Republicans would not be in the slightest bit put out by it either. Their whole plan sits on a base of racism, they have been using racism as the basis of their voter prevention measures for years now. And been called out on it and had 'laws' evoked many times in court for that same racism.

    • @Lone Skankster Not sure I could agree with that assessment, but given the nature of the changing demographics, I wouldn't at all be surprised if they looked to secede the red states and keep their otherwise rapidly dwindling power there. Their positioning suggests that is a real and possible end to their long game.

    • Just wait until the Republicans start coming out and trying to kill US. They're begging for a Civil War.

  • I hate Moscow Mitch more than the next guy but there was nothing funny or informative about this video. Nothing but an unrelated character frim a movie eons ago. Wtf ?

  • Moscow Mitch McConnell is despicable

  • grandstanding as usual. usa hasn't enjoyed bi-partisanship since the Carter administration. Just saying "no" to a bill (especially before fact!) is not leadership. It's laziness and lack of social vision. GOP are behaving like angry obstructionist toddlers.

  • People shouldn't be surprised McConnel never cooperates. Consider: he is NEVER provided a basking lamp during Congressional sessions, and it seems like he's also deprived of crickets. Of COURSE an Evil Turtle is going to be ornery and mean without these things; his reptilian homeostasis is all out of whack. Does he even have any assistants or aids that take care of his turtle needs? Don't they know that it's turtle abuse and moreover making him too disgruntled to come out of his Evil Turtle shell to compromise and work together in legislation??

  • There was an era of bipartisanship? Must've been before Mitch's time, because I know for a fact he was never Bipartisan in the slightest.

  • The word lost all meaning when they forgot it doesn't mean your opposition doing everything you want.

  • 😂😂😂😂

  • Mcconnell doesn't understand bipartisanship. He NEVER has.

  • Can someone send a memo to Manchin so he can stop chasing red unicorns?

  • Mitch McConnell: " The era of bipartisanship is over. " The rest of the country: " We must have blinked back in 2008 and missed the MOMENT of bipartisanship. "

  • After 8 years of blocking Obama, McConnell admits that bipartisanship is over. Pfhtt....

  • How can bipartisanship end if it never existed?

  • It's honestly sad when a fictional serial killer sounds more human and reasonable than Mitch McConnell. The man looks and sounds like a ghoul.

  • what bipartisanship. you authoritarian tyrant.

  • he looks like the ghoul he is. Moscow Mitch.

  • We need to stop hoping the GQP may be reasonable, they have shone there true colors . No more chances.

  • He's so disgusting. He looks like someone using an uncooked chicken as a hand puppet.

  • This bag of trump diapers is full of crap. Not once did McConnell ever worked with the democrats.

  • Do you suppose the founding fathers would have thought one of the smaller states with one of the worse economies would be deciding who gets to work all over the country for a decade. And that state would be one of the worst states in taking of federal tax dollars.

  • Steven Donziger has been at home for 2 years with an ankle bracelet for 2 years talk about compromising?? Chevron recently orchestrated my criminal contempt prosecution and detention in New York by one of the company's private law firms, Seward & Kissel. This happened after I appealed a shocking and unprecedented order from trial judge Lewis A. Kaplan - a former tobacco industry lawyer - that I turn over my computer and phone for review by Chevron lawyers. This order violated the most basic sanctity of the attorney-client privilege, potentially placing my vulnerable clients at severe risk of grave bodily harm or even death." uzfire.info/camera/video/h6-ZZn5r0LN4kK0

  • For the sake of argument, how about we presume that these people have been guilty against America for a long long time. It is against their interests to simply give up without a fight. They all know they should be put away. They will continue to use any means within their disposal to escape Justice. If it were easy, it would have already been done before we were born. Again, only just saying, just saying.

  • I never knew that the era of bipartisanship was alive lol

  • Is funny cause Mitch McConnell always pride himself with the nickname of the "Grim Reaper" cause of how many bills he stop and prevented from being passed, and now he's whining that "bipartisanship is over" when under his majority there wasn't any.

    • Was he whining about the end of bipartisanship or mocking Joe Biden for attempting to achieve it?

    • EXACTLY

    • Ya I guess he realizes we know he's not being genuine, he just says that with a grin as their base gobbles it up.

  • Era of bipartisanship meanwhile they try to coup the gov and are actively destroying democracy *thunderous applause*

  • i agree with Jason, the democrats should just lie down and let Mitch Murder them Literally. like using a meat cleaver. like using a chain saw. with blood and gut spewing all over the place. brain matter flying in the air. That what the GOP wants. frenzy Murder of all democrats. Period.

  • Hahahaha

  • Bipartisanship was over the day Moscow Mitch was elected to the Senate. It's gone down hill from there.

  • Moscow Mitch is still the majority leader

    • @Chancerbox Yes and Moscow Mitch is still effectively blocking everything so he is in charge 🥳

    • It's a 50-50 senate, with the vice president as the tiebreaking vote, and the vice president is a democrat, so the democrats have a very narrow majority

    • Nope.

  • Republicans DO NOT do anything for the average American citizen. NOTHING. They con their base, everyday. Drive through rural America and look at 1984 Ford in the dirt driveway, old couch on the leaking porch, cardboard over the broken glass in the window and a Trump flag.

  • I mean Jason was willing to (and did for a short time) work with Freddy Krueger once. You're trying to tell me Mitch McConnell can't work with Joe Biden?!

  • Democrats wish they had McConnell, that dude gets shit done! You wanna switch party? lol

    • You mean he STOPS work getting done.

    • I don't think that Democrats would EVER support and defend traitors like #MoscowMitch and so many others that are in the Republican party who are getting paid by Putin

  • McConnell complaining about the lack of bipartisanship.......... Mitch, hypocrisy is thy name.

    • Replace "Mitch" in that last sentence with "Conservatives" and the sentence remains accurate.

    • Oh Moscow Mitch is all about blocking.

    • Remind me of that turtle that got in a race with Bugs Bunny

    • @Melesniannon mitchocracy mitchocrite

    • Hypocrimitch? Mitchocrisy? options, options...

  • How dare the Camp Counselors refuse to let them be murdered....Make Camp Crystal Lake Great again. :D

  • So the last vestiges of bipartisanship has finally arrived. Good work turtle 🐢

  • Mitch “Grim Reaper” McConnell is a far scarier monster than Jason “Friday 13th” Voorhees or Freddy “Nightmare” Kruger. 😧

    • Nah, he's a wet blanket with no personal strength, courage or humanity. He's nothing but another treasonous coward, attempting to destroy America so he and his fellow traitors can rule the devastated remains in Putin's name.

    • uzfire.info/camera/video/rqfIeGmUzp6ZjIc

  • Bipartisanship was over when Newt Gingrich formed the “Contract on America” during the Clinton administration.

    • That was one of the most important turning points of the end of bipartisanship, both Gingrich and McConnell have always only been out for themselves, and Newt Gingrich with his brilliant idea colonizing the moon and making it the 51st state, what did they hope to accomplish?

    • uzfire.info/camera/video/rqfIeGmUzp6ZjIc

    • It was over the day they waved through Rupert Murdoch's citizensip.

    • That is funny to me, because I have always called it the “Contract on America” also. And yes, you are correct.

  • And idiot right-wingers will believe McConnell...

  • GOP is keeping the excitements of politics alive and kicking. Did I say excitement? I meant excrement. Why work together towards a common goal for the betterment of all, if we can all bicker and divide while bad shit is happening all around.
