Dana Milbank’s March 3rd column in the Washington Post cites McConnell’s remarks on Biden’s Supreme Court nomination, Judge Jackson, who has been vetted multiple times as she was highly praised by members of both parties.
“There is perhaps no human being more responsible for the tsunami of unlimited, unregulated “dark” money that has corrupted and consumed American politics than Addison Mitchell McConnell III. Nobody worked harder to thwart campaign finance limits…” https://t.co/Y2kya7GzlW

Here are a few excepts from Milbank’s Op Ed here:
On Tuesday, McConnell repeated on the Senate floor that he is “troubled” by “the intensity of Judge Jackson’s far-left dark-money fan club.” Even for McConnell, a five-time Olympic gold medalist in hypocrisy, this was special. There is perhaps no human being more responsible for the tsunami of unlimited, unregulated “dark” money that has corrupted and consumed American politics than Addison Mitchell McConnell III. Nobody worked harder to thwart campaign finance limits and to block the disclosure of contributors’ names. One Nation, the dark-money group McConnell effectively controls with his former chief of staff at the helm, raised more than $172 million in 2020, according to a tax return obtained by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.
As the daily political screed flows back and forth, it becomes difficult to sort the wheat from the chaff. What does that mean?
One key element virtually ignored by the media and not as I can find highlighted in Biden’s State of the Union address should have been cited among his most important goals: Soil regeneration.
One key story entitled “PLANTING CROPS AND CARBON TOO—President Biden says farmers can adopt agricultural methods that help fight climate change. Maryland farmer Trey Hill has been trying”—about his intentions you can read here.

The film done on the subject of soil regeneration is most powerful and can be viewed here.
Watching the documentary above on the recent push to get the world to move from massive use of nitrogen fertilizers to adoption of this soil regeneration farming provides us all with one powerful antidote to affect climate change by changing poisonous farming practices into organically produced food.
Like the need to provide women with the means of deciding how many children they want to produce, this farming initiative, already widely accepted and acted upon in the US, shows the power, exactly like providing all women voluntary free access to family planning, of regenerating vast acreage, now lying fallow with destroyed soil, into fertile food production.
Biden needs to feature his early expressed initiative on regeneration as he travels over the US campaigning for retention of his party over the hate and negativism GOP leaders offer with no future plan except to block good ideas.
McConnell’s hypocrisy over Judge Jackson’s nomination perfectly coincides with his intention to block anything Biden has tried to enact.

Americans are not stupid, and Biden’s low ratings now are hopefully based on transitory frustrations over COVID and inflation. Americans concerned about $5 gas doesn’t quite equate with huddling in a Kyiv subway bunker with your children while your husband is fighting as a guerrilla warrior against Putin’s huge military superiority.
