McCarthy Gets Liz Cheneyed; You Lie? Goodbye.

By a vote of 216-210, the House ended Kevin McCarthy’s two-faced, double-dealing speakership, as he became the first and only person booted out as Speaker of the House. A bipartisan majority decided enough was enough with McCarthy who had promised to allow congressmen to read an appropriations bill and wait 72 hours before holding a vote. He broke that promise this weekend. Matt Gaetz moved to remove him. Gaetz and 7 other Republicans joined 208 Democrats to vote McCarthy out.

This is a payback. McCarthy and his loyalists joined Democrats to pass the Democrat budget. Gaetz used Democrats to oust McCarthy. Democrats wisely go by the Benedict Arnold Rule: never trust a turncoat.

It turns out that Jamaal Bowman pulled that fire alarm 3 days early because McCarthy’s forced resignation just set the House afire, figuratively.

Rank-and-file Republicans are as happy to see McCarthy leave as Taylor Swift is writing a song about the boyfriend she just dumped. Washington lifers are as sad as Travis Kelce will be when she dumps him.

The lifers are so mad that they are writing mean things about Gaetz.

National Review reported, “Amid a motion to vacate House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.), former speaker Newt Gingrich urged the GOP to expel McCarthy’s ‘anti-Republican’ challenger, Matt Gaetz (R., Fla.).”

Gingrich wrote in the Jeff Bezos Post, “Gaetz obviously hates House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) — and that’s fine. If Gaetz were simply a loudmouthed junior member who attacked McCarthy every day, that would be fine, too. He would just be isolated with a small group of lawmakers who can’t figure out how to get things done. They’d huddle together seeking warmth and reassurance from their fellow incompetents.”

I like Gingrich. He could have been a successful speaker had he not impeached Bill Clinton, who turned his perjury into merely lying about sex.

For Gingrich to write this in the Bezos Post is disturbingly unpatriotic and totally not conservative because he lent credence to the most virulently anti-American news outlet in America not named AP.

He wrote, “But Gaetz has gone beyond regular drama. He is destroying the House GOP’s ability to govern and draw a sharp contrast with the policy disasters of the Biden administration.”

House Republicans’ ability to govern? Does he mean the losers who wasted two years of power by not lifting a finger to Build The Wall? What is the sharp contrast with Biden’s open borders disaster? House Republicans made Biden’s policy possible.

House Republicans’ ability to govern? Does he mean the losers who wasted two months defending Liz Cheney when she gave Nancy Pelosi cover for that January 6 witch hunt?

House Republicans’ ability to govern? Does he mean the losers who sit on the sidelines while Democrats railroad President Trump with frivolous lawsuits and indictments meant to bankrupt him in legal fees?

I will care about House Republicans when they start caring about me.

Collin Rugg, co-owner of Trending Politics, tweeted, “Interim Speaker Patrick McHenry aggressively slams the gavel as he and 200+ other Republicans fume over Kevin McCarthy’s ousting.

“Where was this anger as millions of migrants poured over the southern border?

“Where was this anger as US debt rises over $33T?

“Where was this anger when the FBI rounded up Trump supporters and threw them in prison?

“Where is this anger as the ‘justice’ system tries to take out Biden’s top opponent in 2024?

“They sit back and do nothing as our country burns but fume when their buddy loses his Speaker role.”

Stepin Fetchit showed more spine than these jellyfish.

To his credit, Gaetz is fighting back against his critics.

He said, “I take no lecture on asking patriotic Americans to weigh in and contribute to this fight from those who would grovel and bend knee for the lobbyists and special interests who own our leadership.”

But Gingrich wants to expel Gaetz from Congress because Newt sold out long ago and far away. Gingrich would rather punish the man who called out McCarthy than deal with McCarthy’s ineffective leadership. The animus against Trump and Trump supporters has turned Reagan’s big tent party into a party run by clowns.

What exactly has Ronna done as RNC chairman besides raise a lot of money to keep her and her staff well paid while losing election after election after election.

Democrats are having a jolly good time, as well they should. McCarthy is a weakling who is a pale imitation of Paul Ryan who was a pale imitation of John Boehner who was a well-tanned imitation of Dennis Hastert who was a pale imitation of Gingrich who failed to fulfill that Contract With America he wrote.

While Republicans show all the discipline of Lizzo on a diet, Nancy Pelosi kept her side of the aisle in line like a Marine drill instructor.

J.J. Sefton at Ace of Spades HQ had fun with McCarthy’s sleeping arrangements when in Washington, writing, “Regardless of how effective anything the GOP can do to at least slow down let alone halt this madness, they should at least make the effort. As was evidenced yesterday by Frank Luntz’s Thai ladyboy a.k.a. Kevin McCarthy totally caving to the Dems on the continuing resolution, what does the GOP do? Go after one of the few voices of reason Matt Gaetz who rightly has moved to oust McCarthy.”

Republicans are harder on Gaetz than they are on Jamaal Bowman, Hakeem Jeffries, Nancy Pelosi and Hunter Biden combined because crooks and communists pose no threat to the RINO cash flow. Gaetz does.

The three Republicans jostling to replace McCarthy are Majority Leader Steve Scalise, Whip Tom Emmer, and Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik. Ordinarily, Scalise would just get the job but he’s dealing with cancer — on top of recovering from that 2017 assassination attempt by a Democrat. They are figureheads because Congress, like the rest of the federal government, is run by chiefs of staff not elected officials.

The next speaker needs to be someone who will not represent the DC Establishment but will represent Trump supporters because Republicans have a golden opportunity to ride a coming Trump landslide into a 250-185 House and a 60-40 Senate.

The Washington Examiner reported, “After over two years of the Biden presidency, people appear to be in agreement that they’d rather have Republicans in charge of handling the biggest matters facing the nation.

“On the economy, national security, and even the generic most important problem, people picked Republican leadership over Democrats in the latest Gallup survey.

“And not just by a hair. Gallup said the GOP lead in leadership is the biggest in over two decades.”

Gallup said, “Republicans’ 14-percentage-point lead in public preferences for keeping the country prosperous is up from a 10-point margin last year and is its widest advantage on this measure since mid-1991.”

Republicans blew that opportunity in 1991 when George H.W. Bush said, “Read my lips: no new taxes” — and then agreed to new taxes. You can put Peggy Noonan’s words in a Bush but you cannot make him Reagan.

Look for McCarthy to join Newt and Ryan at the Fox News henhouse, where he will talk a big game and do nothing.

Just as he did as speaker.
