Developing: Jordan Expects Another Speaker
Vote, Seeks Meeting with 20 RINOs

Original Article

Representative Jim Jordan has expressed his anticipation for another vote on the Speaker of the House position, according to new reports. This comes amidst growing political tensions and the call to expand the powers of Speaker Pro-Tempore Patrick McHenry in a bid to “get on with the business of the American people.” The Gateway Pundit reported earlier Thursday that Rep. Jim Jordan withdrew from the Speaker’s race today after 22 RINOs derailed his vote for Speaker of the US House of Representatives. Jordan was clearly the grassroots favorite, but the GOPe successfully blocked his attempt to lead the Republican Party.

It will be interesting to see, but RINOs aren't really interested in Republicans getting actual Republican stuff done. They want the Dems to get Dem stuff done, and that is how they generally vote. So, maybe something happens, but my bet is that this won't go anywhere. RINOs are really Dems, and they don't WANT a good Repubican in charge in the House. They LOVE blocking conservatives, because they hate us.

My contempt for Mutt Gaetz grows daily. I guess he's one of the ones seeking to pull the US down. "Burn it down," he says, "who knows what after that."

Oh, right . . . Gaetz wants to "burn it down", but these bozos who vote for Boehner and Scalise and others who aren't even running for the position are True Patriots doing the People's business.

I haven't seen Mr Gaetz's name on any of these "I voted for somebody other than Jordan" lists. Yeah, he ran the coup that got rid of McCarthy. But then again, McCarthy didn't do himself too many favors in not getting his troops in line with the department authorization bills he promised. Not sure I agree with Gaetz' tactics, but hand it to him ... they worked. Now it's time that the GOP Congresscritters.get over their "my liddle fweelings was hurt" and support Jordan as speaker. I'm happy to see that my Congresscritter cast her votes for Jordan.

Why are the 20 automatically called RINOs just because they didn’t vote for Jim Jordan? Do we even know what their reasons are? It’s such a kindergarten-sandbox tactic! And the definition of RINO is a constantly moving target. Two weeks ago, some on this page were calling Jim Jordan a RINO — until President Trump endorsed him. And I’ve been following Lucianne long enough to remember when some on this page called Candidate Trump a RINO. There may have been a time when “RINO” actually meant something concrete, but these days it’s just a childish way to smear someone who doesn’t do, think, or say exactly what you want at any given moment.

Excellent post #9. And those who want R challengers to reps from New York and the purple states, do you really think you can get Mastriano and Dr. Oz types elected? Looks to me like our caucus is comprised largely of Rinos, no matter how ever-shifting the definition. And electability, especially in the swing states, is what counts if we're to retain a majority. Right now, thanks to Gaetz, I think that's doubtful.

I hope the 20 to 22 people who refused to vote for Jordan unearth a bit of integrity in their souls and vote finally to place him in the speakership. There are nearly two dozen fools who couldn’t care less about the House, let alone the country. If the Republicans have a good year in 2024 and achieve a strong majority it would be very useful to punish them all. Throw in Matt Gaetz and his idiotic sidekicks who followed him of the cliff.

Before Louisiana Rep. Mike Johnson officially became Speaker of the House on Wednesday, there was the seven-person pre-game panel on CNN’s Inside Politics. One of those panelists, senior political analyst Gloria Borger, was forced to concede that despite being “hugely conservative,” Johnson is “not the devil incarnate.” Borger’s remarks as she recalled Reps. Jim Jordan and Tom Emmer’s failed bids, “I think he is a person who’s hard to demonize. You know, it's very easy to demonize somebody like a Jim Jordan, who’s a fire brand. He's out there and fighting and then Donald Trump can demonize an [Tom] Emmer because he didn't believe the election was rigged.”

The House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a resolution in support of Israel on Wednesday following terrorist attacks on the country by Hamas that began on Oct. 7. House Resolution 771, titled “Standing with Israel as it defends itself against the barbaric war launched by Hamas and other terrorists,” condemns Hamas for beginning an “unprovoked war on Israel” and accuses them of “slaughtering Israelis and abducting hostages in towns in southern Israel, including children and the elderly.” After the House elected Republican Rep.

Democrats had an utter meltdown after House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) was unanimously elected by the Republican majority to lead the House of Representatives, the first Republican to be unanimously elected by his conference since 2011. According to an emailed statement posted to X by Punch Bowl News founder Jake Sherman, President Joe Biden’s 2024 campaign strongly condemned the election of Johnson, despite Biden’s congratulations in an official statement from the White House. “MAGA Mike Johnson’s ascension to the speakership cements the extreme MAGA takeover of the House Republican Conference,” Ammar Moussa, a spokesman for the Biden campaign, said in a statement.

New York—The judge in Donald Trump’s civil fraud trial fined the former president $10,000 on Wednesday, saying Trump violated a limited gag order barring personal attacks on court staffers. The fine came after Trump was called to the witness stand to explain his comment outside the courtroom about “a person who’s very partisan sitting alongside” the judge in the case, Judge Arthur Engoron.Weeks ago, Engoron ordered all participants in the trial not to comment publicly about his staff. The narrow gag order imposed on Oct. 3 came after Trump made a social media post maligning the judge’s principal law clerk, who sits beside Engoron in court.

Newly elected Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA) is a strong advocate of the House’s impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden for his involvement in the Biden family business. During a September House floor speech, Johnson eloquently articulated three reasons to justify the inquiry initially launched by former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA): There are three irrefutable facts that have taken us to this point: Number one, President Biden lied directly to the American people. Number two, President Biden’s family and their associates profited millions through shell companies. Number three, President Biden’s federal agencies are stonewalling our legitimate congressional inquiry.

Rep. Mike Johnson, the new Speaker, is one of the lower-profile lawmakers in Congress but has surged to victory and now holds the most powerful position in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Louisiana Republican is a father-of-four who entered Congress in 2017 and is serving his fourth term. Johnson, 51, is regarded as an intellectual, and a family man, and his success rescued the House from an ongoing state of chaos. On Tuesday, he became his party's fourth choice for House Speaker nominee in just three weeks after the historic ousting of Kevin McCarthy earlier this month.

It’s an Empire State of decline. Beset by high taxes and quality of life woes, 545,498 New Yorkers left for other states in 2022, according to US Census data. Top destinations included Florida — the most popular choice — followed by New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania as well as more distant states like Texas and California. The exodus was partly offset by more people moving to the Empire State in 2022 than any year over the last decade, with 301,000 new residents making the transition. Despite that uptick, New York still suffered a net population loss of 244,000.

WASHINGTON — Republicans on Tuesday picked Rep. Tom Emmer as their nominee for House speaker. The nominee now goes to the full House for a vote. It’s three weeks since Republicans ousted Kevin McCarthy. The House speaker will need to accomplish the seemingly impossible job of uniting the GOP majority. Emmer of Minnesota jumped ahead as the top vote-getter on early round ballots and was battling Rep. Mike Johnson of Louisiana on a fifth ballot. Others are dropping out including Florida newcomer Byron Donalds, who’s aligned with Donald Trump, and Kevin Hern of Oklahoma. The nominee will also need to win a majority in a House floor vote.

Friday afternoon, the Treasury Department reported that, despite a growing economy and low unemployment, the federal deficit shot up by $320 billion in fiscal year 2023. That’s unusual. But what’s really bizarre is why the deficit exploded. According to the report, overall spending actually dropped by 2% compared with 2022 as the COVID-19 spending splurge abated. What drove up the deficit this year was a sudden and completely unexpected 9% drop in tax revenues. Not only did revenues come up hundreds of billions lower than last year, but they were well below what everybody expected them to be.
