Speaker Mike Johson (R-LA) backtracked and caved to the deep state and Democrats, moving to slip a deep state authorization into the defense bill.
Reports say that congressional leaders, including Johnson, agreed to put an extension of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The bill would extend Section 702 until April 19.
This frustrated many conservatives, including those who were supposed to be instrumental in crafting the final texts for the NDAA.
Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) released a video statement after she said that leadership asked conferees, which includes herself, to agree to the 3000-plus page NDAA, which is “being released behind closed doors without even getting time to read it!”
The Peach State conservative blamed Johnson for negotiating with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to “cut a deal” that would contain prohibitions against funding for abortion and “trans surgery prohibitions” that were in the House-passed NDAA under former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).

No one representing the Republican base and the people paying the taxes.
We cannot rely on any Republican in the Congress.
Yeah, you’re getting hot. Very Hot
1. Section 702 needs to be revised, totally.
2. Any extention of an unrevised section 702 should not have gone any further than March 1; that’s time enough to get a new section 702 written after Congress reconvenes for the new session.
3. No bill should be sent to either chamber for a vote if members have not had time to read the entire bill.
Figures, there are no uncompromised left.
Thanks Mike for nothin’. We get blurred January 6th videos to protect the police and all the other bad actors on Jan 6th. And he treats people like morons telling us it is for our protection which is a bald faced lie.
Next he will cave on the Ukraine funding.
VACATE THE FREAKING CHAIR, AND VANNITY CAN KISS MY ASS TOO FOR USING LEFT WING TALKING POINTSLAST NIGHT!!
I wish I knew what kind of leverage they used on Mike Johnson.
He’ll be meeting with Joe at the WH at night to see what Joe wants soon.
It extends Section 702 for 4 months...giving time to work on a rewrite. Not a problem.
The last chance to claw back the fascist FBI was lost when Trump appointed that rat Wray. We’d like to think that they have something on johnson because it’s worse if they don’t.
Not a “backtrack”. Just a return to his original plan.
Probably just reminded him about what they are doing to Trump and his supporters.
New team same as old team.
Not letting the Members read the legislation is a huge Red Flag.
Billions to failing Ukraine next.
They used Thanksgiving to shut down the Investigation of the Fire Alarm insurrectionist. They won’t let Christmas go by without stabbing the American people in the back.
Being a Southern Baptist myself, I have always been leery of people who wear their religion on their shirt sleeves. I think Orwell’s doublethink is applicable here.
He may not be long in the seat at this rate.
