Last week saw a spectacle in the U.S. House of Representatives, as 20 Republican members held up Kevin McCarthy’s election to the Speaker position. The Democrats, corporate media, and leftist propagandists delighted in the Republican majority’s supposed fracture. This amounted to whistling past the graveyard.
By holding up the election in 15 rounds of votes, the 20 Republican patriots secured deals with McCarthy. They also flushed out duplicitous RINOs in government and so-called “conservative” media. In its second week, the new Congress is ready to recitfy the Democrats’ crimes of the last 7 to 8 years, as we shall see in the articles collected below.
Fox News- House passes new rules for Congress as McCarthy clears first major test as House speaker:
“The House of Representatives passed a new rules package Monday that overhauls the way it functions by putting up more barriers to congressional spending and creating a more deliberate process for passing legislation, which were key demands of the more conservative members of the Republican Party.
“The rules passed with an 220-213 vote that saw just one Republican, Rep. Tony Gonzales of Texas, vote against it. Passage of the blueprint for how the GOP will run the House is the first sign of success for House Speaker Kevin McCarthy after the fight of his life last week for the speaker’s gavel.”
“The newly adopted rules also include a provision that allows House Freedom Caucus members to receive three of the nine seats on the House Rules Committee, which dictates the terms of how bills are brought to the floor and how they can be amended.”
“The package also includes a return to a “Cut-As-You-Go” policy that says legislation cannot be considered if it increases mandatory spending over a 5- or 10-year period. This “CUTGO” policy requires bills that call for new spending to find offsetting spending cuts elsewhere in the federal budget – an ambitious new curb on federal spending, part of the GOP’s effort to stop piling on trillions of dollars in new debt each year.”
The Post Millennial- GOP-led House votes to end funding for 87,000 IRS agents:
“The House of Representatives fulfilled Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s promise to prevent the Internal Revenue Service from hiring 87,000 new agents and conducting new audits on Americans by voting to rescind over $70 billion in funding to the agency Monday night.
“The Family and Small Business Taxpayer Protection Act, sponsored by Rep. Adrian Smith (R-NE), and Rep. Michelle Steel, (R-CA) passed by a vote of 221-210 and rescinds funding that could have been used to double the agency’s current size as well as conduct new audits on Americans.”
“Smith’s office said to Fox News regarding the score, “Congressional Democrats and the Biden administration have made clear that up to 90 percent of their new audits will target middle-class families and small businesses. This score again demonstrates the extent to which they are plundering working-class Americans in order to hand billions of dollars out to profitable businesses to buy electric trucks for their fleets, fuel for their airplanes, and install large-scale wind and solar across America’s landscapes.””
Becker News- Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell and Ilhan Omar Have a Major Reason to Sweat the Election of Speaker McCarthy:
“[Kevin] McCarthy now has the ability to follow through on a vow he made a year ago, when he said that he would strip three Democrat firebrands of their committee assignments, should the GOP take control of the House.”
““The Democrats have created a new thing where they’re picking and choosing who can be on committees,” McCarthy said. “Never in the history [of Congress] have you had the majority tell the minority who can be on committee. But this new standard which these Democrats have voted for—if Eric Swalwell cannot get a security clearance in the private sector, there is no reason why he should be given one to be on Intel or Homeland Security. He will not be serving there.””
“McCarthy also said he will remove Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.”
“In addition, McCarthy said he would also prevent Adam Schiff (D-CA) from serving on the Intelligence Committee.
““You look at Adam Schiff—he should not be serving on Intel when he has openly, knowingly now used a fake dossier, lied to the American public in the process and doesn’t have any ill will [and] says he wants to continue to do it,” McCarthy said. “We’re going to reshape—think about what happened in Afghanistan. Why did Afghanistan collapse so fast? Was the Intel Committee under Adam Schiff focused on impeachment and not on the safety of America? Why are people coming across the border that are on a terrorist watch list? What are they doing about it? Their own members on that committee say it’s not happening when it’s true. We need to have an Intel Committee that looks at what’s happening around the world and keeps America safe. It should do exactly what it was created [to do]—overseeing of our agencies and others. We’re going to hold people to a higher standard in the process if they want to be on the Intel Committee and the training to be a part of it. Take the politics out of it.””
The Gateway Pundit- Conservative Hero Jim Jordan Will Chair “Weaponization of Government” Select Committee:
“Republicans across America deserve to be thrilled this morning with the news conservative bulldog Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) will be leading a select committee investigating the innumerable abuses of power by the Biden Regime. Given Jordan’s impeccable credentials with the right, the Regime better start sweating.
“According to the Post Millennial, this “weaponization of government” committee will chiefly focus on four areas: the collusion between the Regime and Big Tech, the politicization of the FBI, the Department of Injustice’s targeting of parents at school board meetings, and Anthony Fauci. These are the things conservatives have been demanding from Republicans for the past two years.
Becker News- Matt Gaetz Announces Republicans Will Release 14,000 Hours of J6 Tapes That Pelosi Hid from America:
“Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz is pledging to release the 14,000 hours of January 6 footage that have been hidden from the American public.
“Gaetz appeared on “The Charlie Kirk Show” on Tuesday and revealed that he is working on giving the nation the full truth about what really happened on January 6.”
““Can we get answers on J6?” Kirk asked. “Can we get answers on this? Can we get answers on that? One of my favorite members of Congress is Thomas Massie and the fact that he’s gonna be on this new committee really gives me hope. Matt, do you anticipate allowing the dogs to be released, if you will, against this fourth branch of government?”
““Kevin McCarthy told us he’s going to get the evidence out in front of the American people, and that means releasing the 14,000 hours of tapes that have been hidden that I think would give more full context to that day, rather than the cherry-picked moments that the January 6th committee tried to use to inflame and further divide our country,” Gaetz responded.”
“Ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi during her time with the gavel stood in the way of transparency about her office’s actions during the Capitol Riot, and has blocked releasing footage that might provide exculpatory evidence for J6 defendants.
“The Capitol Police have shut down legal requests for its communications and surveillance video on January 6, as was demonstrated by a Judicial Watch lawsuit.
“The Congress, which oversees the Capitol Police, claimed “sovereign immunity” as its authority to block releasing the footage. The House Democrats also claimed that releasing the footage is not in the “public interest,” nor is it a matter of “public record.””
“The January 6 event was weaponized by the Democratic Party to push a narrative that it believed would harm former President Donald Trump. Thanks to the GOP-led House, and new Speaker Kevin McCarthy, more Americans might finally get the whole truth.”
