No, he carries a sawn off shotgun. It doesn’t matter how he shoots; the only safe place is behind him when he fires that thang.


That’s the correct analysis lol

We, OTOH, have reason to be happy, because this is a push back against the status quo.


The RINO's in the party better understand this, they should be concerned, this isn't simply a divided house on the R side, its not Trump or Terrorists or any of the things the mass media is drumming up.

Right now the total R is barely enough to get control, and to get the speakers title you need about 100% of the vote, having 20+ votes for the conservatives in the party now is the time to flex that muscle. If not now this group will get zero from the establishment RINO party members that continue to vote for McCarthy.

This is a rare opportunity for conservatives to get seats on committees, and all types of concessions. Initially McCarthy said no to everything the group asked for, so he decided to bully them thinking that "the party members" will stay together unified against the D.

He underestimated the number of members that are willing to take the heat in the press, be called names, and let the D sit over there and smirk.

This is a power play and it's working.

Yep.

Gaetz appeared on Fox News to discuss the background issues with Kevin McCarthy and the lack of trust held by the group opposing him.

Additionally, Gaetz refuses to accept the criticism from former House republicans who created the crisis of confidence within the American electorate. When challenged about the specific criticism, Gaetz does a good job putting context to the failed republican efforts over the past 15 years.

GAETZ: McCarthy Has No Ideology. He's a Vessel for Lobbyists.

The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."

Moving on to the Ninth Vote.

So, let's bet the outcome.

Over = 19 votes, McCarthy selected

Spot on = 16 votes, McCarthy selected

Under = 11 votes, McCarthy selected

Alternate outcome = 12 Votes and McCarthy withdraws

Sure, but how many politicians hung with Epstein? I don't think this is nearly as rare as we might wish.


So is this a defense of Gaetz's character? That other politicians are slime balls too? If that's what you are saying, okay. But perhaps all you are saying is that there are lots of other slimy politicians too? If so, that still leaves Gaetz in the slime ball pile of politicians.

CSpan said he was traveling for a medical procedure and would be out though tomorrow. There were two others that had events happen that could cause them missing votes. One was a birth of his child and one had a funeral Sat.

I guess this is a good example of how hard it is to rig an election when you have to vote in person, even if all those voting are crooks.

The Uniparty continues. Until this Titanic which is our country meets it's predictable end.

Obama runs down the military and accrues 3 trillion in unfunded debt. Trump runs up the deficit rebuilding the military. 2 years in, Biden gives away the military's equipment, and accrues 6 trillion in unfunded liabilities.
Americans eagerly await their next I-phone, oblivious

Bill, I want you to do me a favor. I want you to search through your posts and point me to something- anything- optimistic you've said about this nation, or at least an attempt to demonstrate positivity or find the good in something bad.

Show me, would you? Because right now, all I can recall from you is the constant drumbeat of negativity- everything is wrong, everything is bad, everything is going to end in disaster. There's no hope, no reason to be happy.

Right?

When you find those optimistic posts of yours, please drop some links to them for me- in this thread.

Tucker Carlson Asks Why Does Everyone in DC Want to Demonize, Attack and Eliminate the House Reform Group

During his opening monologue tonight, Fox News host Tucker Carlson outlines the attacks against those opposing Kevin McCarthy for House Speaker.

Tucker Carlson asks why the visibility of democracy in action ends up with DC insiders claiming the American political structure is going to collapse just because Kevin McCarthy is not being anointed as House Speaker. Those in opposition to McCarthy are deemed as Russian operatives, domestic terrorists and corrupt sketchy voices belonging to various shady patriotic movements that have threatened the domestic tranquility of the nation.

WATCH:
Tucker: What is going on here?

Just a thought. If none of this was televised, no speeches, no interviews with journalists, none of it, would this have been resolved by now? No one can be certain for sure, but I think it would have been. Some, not all, of these guys just crave the media attention.

I am not defending or condemning anything. I am pointing out that politicians are slime balls. They hang out with one another. There are plenty of pictures of Trump with Epstein, and I don't believe for a second it defines who Trump is, but he certainly hung around with people you would not approve of. I don't know Gaetz well enough to comment on his character, but given that the corrupt DOJ declined to prosecute, I trust he was not involved in any way. In any event this is not what this thread is about.
