In this episode of “Mitch Being Mitch”…

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly been pressuring Republican senators to pledge to support his (the Democrats’) “secret” border bill before it’s released to the public for open debate.

Oh, c’mon — would Mitch do that? Hell yeah, he would. How many times has McConnell folded up like a cheap suit to Senate Democrats throughout his Senate leadership career?

According to multiple sources, McConnell has kept the largely complete bill “secret” until he can lock in at least 20 of the 49 Republican senators — even if he has to make minor changes to do so. 

Here’s more — disgustingly so:

The draft bill is also being reviewed by the Senate’s Committee on Appropriations because the Biden administration wants roughly $15 billion to operate its migration program in 2024. 

The money is needed by Democrats to process, transport, feed, house, and hide arriving 2024 migrants –and the 6.2 million migrants already admitted— during the run-up to the 2024 election.

The extra spending can also be used to persuade senators who do not yet support the giveaway.

Some — not a majority — of the GOP senators are denouncing the bill, which will likely provide employers with a gusher of cheap and compliant foreign workers who can replace better-paid Americans.

As I said, Mitch being Mitch — and it appears that he’s far from the Lone Ranger among Senate Republicans who support the still-secret bill.

 Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is not among them, telling Tucker Carlson:

Half of my Republican caucus is, as we speak, ready to sell out, and they’re ready to sell out fake border reform in exchange for what they really want, which is to send more of your tax dollars to Ukraine. 

Nailed it — on both counts.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) echoed Paul’s comments.

We’ve been through these things so many times where we’re told, ‘Oh, there’s not a deal yet, not a deal, not a deal.’ All of a sudden: ‘Oh, there’s [a] deal!’ And then we are given the equivalent of a snap election, like a snap vote, without really any opportunity to read it and no opportunity to amend it.

And we’ll be told, ‘Oh, oh, that was Schumer’s decision.’ No, it’s not.

Again, spot on. 

Whether the Republicans are in the majority or the minority, why the propensity to cave to the Democrats? Fear of the left-wing media sock puppets? That’s part of it. Lack of “intestinal fortitude?” That’s part of it, as well. And year after year, Congress after Congress, the song remains the same.

Paul, who vehemently opposes sending more money to Ukraine, said allowing 5,000 illegal aliens into the country daily before giving Biden authority to deport them without going through the asylum process — similar to former President Trump’s authority under Title 42 — is unacceptable.  

Many people feel that letting 5,000 in a day before you get aggressive — that would be 1.8 million a year — that’s an unacceptable baseline. It would be twice what the baseline was under [former President Obama].

Ahh, but it’s not unacceptable to your fellow Kentuckian, Mitch McConnell, Rand. 

I know — you’re just as shocked as we are.
