Chris McDaniel: ‘Mitch McConnell Has Failed This Country’



Republican Senate candidate Chris McDaniel rocked the American Legion in Tupelo, Mississippi Friday night.

McDaniel, the state senator, is running against incumbent Roger Wicker in this year’s Republican U.S. Senate primary. McDaniel noted the massive amount of money that Wicker and his allies have dropped in recent days to slam him.

“He’s already spent $1.2 million in negative advertising. He’s called me everything except Baptist,” McDaniel said to laughter. “They had a commercial showing me standing in the swamp. It looks like my six-year old made it on his computer.”

McDaniel scored his biggest applause breaks when he first criticized Wicker, and when he vowed his support for the traditional Mississippi state flag.

In recent days, Thad Cochran also announced he was stepping down from the Senate, opening up both of Mississippi’s Senate seats, and the Washington-based Club For Growth decided to hold off on its expected endorsement of McDaniel. Is the Republican Establishment trying to lure McDaniel out of the Wicker race and get him to run in the election for Cochran’s seat in November? In his American Legion speech, McDaniel showed no signs of backing off Wicker.

“Mitch McConnell is failing this country,” McDaniel said, calling this election “a referendum on term limits” and slamming Roger Wicker for fighting President Trump’s push to get the 60-vote filibuster threshold down to 51 votes so that he can actually pass more bills through the Senate.

“The establishment will say anything, do anything to keep you under their control,” McDaniel said. “But their power is slipping. They can’t afford to lose in Mississippi. They’re scared. And how do animals act when they’re scared? The dirty tricks are coming. The lies are coming. It’s up to you to stand up to it. Just keep this in mind. The more they yell, the more they slander, the more you’re over the target. They don’t want you to wake up again. You already did that in 2016. These same men and women who did everything to slander President Donald Trump…they now claim they are on your side.”

“No more retreat. No more compromise. We have nothing left to compromise.”

“If Washington is broke, it’s because men like Roger Wicker have failed to stand for you in your time of need,” McDaniel said, accusing Wicker of being weak on illegal immigration. McDaniel pledged to always oppose DACA.

“Not a single dime for a border wall but hundreds of millions for Planned Parenthood. Who voted for every one of those budgets? Roger Wicker.”

McDaniel said that Wicker is probably a kind person, but it’s time to “have kind people who will fight for you.”

“I’m not going there to beg Mitch McConnell for anything. I’m going there to fight. I’m not going there to beg for scraps off his table. Right now you have a senator who is Mitch McConnell’s lapdog. I’m going to be a Mississippi bulldog.”

“They have done enough damage. Career politicians and lobbyists. They have done enough damage,” McDaniel said.

“My own party left it,” McDaniel said of American values. “The party I’ve been part of since I was 13 years old. They talk the talk, but they rarely walk the walk.”

“When Donald Trump told us he was going to drain the swamp, I took him seriously. So when I’m elected, I’m going there to drain the swamp.”

“I’m tired of being dead last in this state. I’m tired of begging for crumbs in Washington…Conservatives in Washington. Can you imagine if there were just a small handful more? Can you imagine what Mitch McConnell will do to keep us out?”

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District

It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”



Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.

The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.

Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”

“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”

This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
