  • Will conservatives sleep through yet another primary cycle?

    The Blaze ^ | April 29, 2024 | Daniel Horowitz
    We are rapidly approaching the most important primaries of our lifetime. Sure, the presidential primary — the one we all slept through — might be behind us, but most states still have not held their primaries for down-the-ballot state and federal offices. Will the unprecedented betrayals of the past few months finally catalyze change among Republican voters and activists? Or will we continue to reflexively nominate every incumbent and the most well-known politician with an “R” next to his name, ensuring we perpetuate dystopian uni-party governance? The reality is, despite the shocking betrayals, not a single House or Senate Republican...

    Republican Rep. Tim Burchett of Tennessee isn’t holding back when it comes to the border. In remarks made on C-SPAN2 and posted by Townhall to X, the Tennessee representative impressed upon the American people the dire circumstances of the border crisis and the inaction by Congress. “When I first took office and this border issue was already an issue, I can remember we started talking then, and I said, ‘No border, no budget,'” he began his Monday remarks surrounded by Freedom Caucus members. “That’s how important it is to the American people,” he continued before starting in on the $1.2...
  • Ken Buck says he’s ‘not going to lie’ on behalf of GOP

    MSN/The Hill ^ | March 3 | Story by Lauren Sforza
    Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) said he is not “going to lie” on behalf of the Republican Party when asked why he decided to not seek reelection. Buck, who announced last November that he will not be running for reelection, said on NewsNation’s “The Hill Sunday” that while his goals for the country have not changed, the world around him “has changed dramatically.” “We’ve gone from a time when the Tea Party stood for conservative principles, for constitutional principles, to a time where the [populists] have taken over the Republican Party and are really advocating things that I believe are very...
  • Just In: House Freedom Caucus Calls on Mitch McConnell to Immediately Step Down from Leadership and Not Screw Republicans in Upcoming Election Like Paul Ryan Did

    02/29/2024 3:32:48 PM PST · by Macho MAGA Man · 34 replies
    Paul Ryan never liked Donald Trump. He still frequently attacks Trump and praises his detractors like angry warmonger Liz Cheney. Dirty Paul Ryan repeatedly lied to the American public about funding President Donald Trump’s border wall. Paul Ryan announced in December 2017 that he was retiring after the midterm election in 2018. Then he stuck around and did as much as he could to fund never-Trumpers and ignore Trump supporters in the historic midterms that gave Nancy Pelosi the gavel again. Paul Ryan also hampered House republican investigators when he blocked subpoenas of Democrats associated with the Trump-Russia collusion hoax....
  • Shutdown showdown: Freedom Caucus gives Johnson terms for spending fight

    House conservatives are setting the stage for what is likely to be another high-profile government spending showdown just days ahead of a scheduled shutdown and federal agencies are set to lapse in funding. Republicans in the House Freedom Caucus released a list of policies they want to see in spending negotiations when Congress returns to session next week, pushing for a one-year stopgap spending bill if those demands are not met. The list puts House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) in a tough position because he must navigate a way to avoid a government shutdown scheduled for March 1. “House Republicans...

    Colorado Republican Rep. Ken Buck on Thursday indicated he would not support an effort to impeachment Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, contending that such a move lacked a valid basis. The Republican indicated he was unconvinced of the merits of the impeachment articles the Homeland Security Committee approved earlier this week which accuse Mayorkas of "willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law," among other things. "I've talked to constitutional experts on the outside. I’ve talked to former members about the impact that this would have in the future," he told reporters. "The people I'm talking to......

    GOP Rep. Tom Emmer has dropped out of speaker race – a move that comes just hours after he won his party’s nomination, the latest sign that Republicans are no closer to electing a new speaker. Earlier in the day, Emmer’s bid to be speaker appeared on the verge of collapse amid opposition from the right flank of his conference and fresh attacks waged by former President Donald Trump – just hours after the Minnesota Republican was picked as the party’s nominee. Several Republicans who oppose Emmer say they will not move off their opposition and are calling for a...
  • The U.S. House calls for a war crimes investigation into atrocities in Ukraine.

    NY Times ^ | April 6, 2022 | Catie Edmondson
    The U.S. House voted overwhelmingly Wednesday night to call for an investigation of war crimes committed during Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Six House Republicans voted against the measure. “We rise today not as Republicans, Democrats, but as Americans, as a united Congress on behalf of the American people condemning these atrocities,” said Representative Michael McCaul, a Republican from Texas and the co-author of the bill. The six Republicans who opposed the legislation did not immediately explain their votes, but nearly all of them were members of the hard-right Freedom Caucus and have argued against interventionist foreign policy.

    The House GOP’s long and embarrassing nightmare is over. Or has it just taken a pause? After more than a week of leadership battles and a moribund House, the Republican caucus nominated Steve Scalise as the next Speaker of the House. It was not by acclamation, needless to say:House Majority Leader Steve Scalise is the GOP’s next pick for speaker.The Louisiana Republican defeated Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) in a secret-ballot vote on Wednesday, securing a simple majority of the GOP conference.The 113-99 vote count came from Rep. Darrell Issa, although it is not yet official. The split raises the...

    The Messenger ^ | 9/20/2023 | Lindsey McPherson
    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has a message to fellow Republicans blocking their party from advancing government funding bills: You're making it impossible for the party to win any concessions from Democrats. "If Republicans hold Republicans back from moving bills it's like you're walking into a fight losing," McCarthy, R-Calif., told reporters Wednesday. "And I've never understood that situation. So I want to be able to win these battles." House Republicans had hoped to pass a short-term government funding bill this week that contains spending cuts and border security policies to show party unity heading into inevitable negotiations with Senate Democrats...
  • Hard-line conservatives line up to oppose stopgap funding deal, making passage difficult

    Washington Examiner ^ | September 17, 2023 | Reese Gorman & Cami Mondeaux
    Just hours after a government spending deal was brokered between members of the House Freedom Caucus and the Republican Main Street Caucus, several hard-line conservatives have come out in opposition to the proposal, ultimately putting its passage in peril less than two weeks before an expected government shutdown. Congress has until Sept. 30 to pass some form of spending legislation, but intraparty tensions and disagreements in the House have complicated those efforts over the last two weeks. In light of this, six members from the Main Street Caucus and the Freedom Caucus worked since Tuesday to negotiate a continuing resolution...

    Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was removed from the House Freedom Caucus after taking Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s side too many times on key votes. Greene also feuded with Freedom Caucus member Lauren Boebert. Maryland Rep. Andy Harris confirmed the removal saying the Boebert feud was “the straw that broke the camel’s back.” He said: “I think the way she referred to a fellow member was probably not the way we expect our members to refer to other fellow, especially female, members.” Greene called Boebert a ‘little b*tch” earlier. “A vote was taken to remove Marjorie Taylor Greene from the...

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 7, 2023 | Nicole Russell
    The Republican Party's Freedom Caucus in Congress means well but has struggled to move past the MAGA era and into a realm where it can actually make a dent in our bloated bureaucracy. Now that the caucus has ousted Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), however, perhaps it can better serve the conservative movement. The Freedom Caucus purportedly voted to dismiss Greene after she and fellow member Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) exchanged words on the House floor recently. Greene apparently called Boebert " a little b****. " There were supposedly a handful of other reasons as well, including breaking with the...

    As we reported earlier, a lot of Congressional Republicans are mad about the debt ceiling deal that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has struck with President Biden.It’s not clear if McCarthy has the votes for the deal based upon the people sounding off and it also puts his speakership in question, potentially, if he doesn’t have support from people like the House Freedom Caucus. He also went a little too far in what he was trying to sell, claiming there wasn’t anything for Democrats in the bill.When reporters queried members of the Freedom Caucus about whether they would make a “motion...

    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is facing intense opposition from conservative members of his own party over the tentative debt limit deal he reached with President Joe Biden. Many congressional Republicans from the conservative Freedom Caucus have said they are against McCarthy's tentative deal he reached Saturday with Biden. A source close to House Republican leadership told Axios on Sunday that 60 conservative Republicans may not vote for the deal, which means McCarthy would need nearly that many Democrats to vote for the bill in the House, which has 222 Republicans and 213 Democrats. A summary of the deal obtained...

    The House Freedom Caucus on Thursday threw a wrench in Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s plans to finalize a debt limit deal with President Biden, demanding new provisions in exchange for their votes. Thirty-five members of the hardline group sent a letter to Mr. McCarthy outlining a new conservative wish list. The lawmakers wrote that GOP unity behind Mr. McCarthy would be endangered if the demands were unmet. “The power of an undivided Republican Party guided by conservative principles cannot be overstated,” the lawmaker wrote. “As you navigate the debt limit debate, you are the steward of this unity and will determine...

    SC Freedom Caucus Substack ^ | May 2, 2023 | Unattributed
    SC Republicans have a bad habit of saying one thing in election season but acting quite differently once in office. Most run on a bold platform of transparency, accountability, and fiscal conservatism, but always fail to deliver. Worse yet, some actively oppose conservative policies and constantly promote liberal ones. An excellent example of this inconsistent behavior occurred a few weeks ago when SCFC Chairman Adam Morgan proposed a common sense amendment to the American Rescue Plan (aptly nicknamed “Biden Bucks”) funding bill. The amendment was simple and straightforward. It prohibited members of the Legislature from profiting off the infrastructure projects...

    In January, some members of the House Freedom Caucus refused to vote for Kevin McCarthy as House speaker unless he promised concessions. They won. Now, the staunchly conservative group is expanding into an area where they could make a far larger difference: Red states where laws can be passed without support from Democrats. The State Freedom Caucus Network has rapidly taken root in 11 states, promising to make sure that states where Republicans have a mandate legislate like it. While their House counterparts have been criticized as obstructionist — failing to understand the need for compromise in a closely matched...

    Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) endorsed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) for president on Wednesday, becoming the second House Republican to throw their support behind the Florida governor — even though he has not launched a campaign for the White House. In a statement released by the Never Back Down super PAC, which is supporting a DeSantis presidential bid, Massie called the Florida governor “a proven energetic leader.” “America needs a leader who is decisive, respects the Constitution, understands policy, puts family first, and leads by inspiring,” Massie said. “That’s why I’m endorsing Ron DeSantis for President.” “If we make the...
