  • SC Freedom Caucus files lawsuit to gain recognition as full legislative caucus

    The South Carolina Freedom Caucus has filed a lawsuit against the House Ethics Commission. The group wants to be recognized as a full legislative caucus. The lawsuit has been filed in federal court and lists all members of the House Ethics Committee as defendants. Members say the caucus is classified as a “special legislative interest caucus” and specifically forbids it from raising money and “engag[ing] in any activity that would influence the outcome of an election or ballot measure.” "South Carolina law prohibits the Freedom Caucus from enjoying the same privileges as other caucuses. Caucuses formed on the basis of...

    Many of you will note that I tried to give the Turtle the benefit of the doubt since he got Trump’s judges confirmed. But since then, his actions against Trump showed his true Swamp colors, complete with their unsavory olfactory component. Which brings us to Kevin McCarthy. Many of us have been uncertain about McCarthy, and for apparent good reason. During his tenure as Minority Leader in the House, he did an excellent imitation of a wheeler and dealer, with little evidence that he had any principles whatever. He acted more as a middleman than someone at the tiller of...
  • Reining in Government Spending? Let's Get Real, Why is a Republican Freedom Caucus Even Necessary?

    Behind the refusal of the House Republican Party’s so-called freedom caucus to vote for Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., is the caucus’s skepticism that he will actually “rein in government spending.” I’ve never quite understood why all Republicans do not belong to the Freedom Caucus. If the Republican Party supports low taxes, light regulations and strong national security, why is a Freedom Caucus even necessary? Here’s the problem. In 1900, government at all three levels — local, state and federal — taxed Americans at about 9% of their earnings. Now, it is over 32%. As former President Ronald Reagan said: “Government’s...

    Members of the Arizona Legislature and the Arizona Freedom Caucus turned their backs on Corrupt Katie Hobbs, walked out of her yearly State of the State address Monday, and slammed her in a new statement for the “election riddled with violations” and her embrace of “the left’s extreme, woke plan.” They also criticized her “preference to illegally legislate via executive order” and her “willingness to exploit the levers of power in our state.” State Senator Jake Hoffman said that Corrupt Katie Hobbs’ far-left, woke plan “elevates her actions to tyrannical.” Hobbs was nowhere to be found after her speech, likely...

    (The opinions expressed by contributors are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of when a writer writes, “it was like a 15-round fight,” they’re engaging in hyperbole—but as RedState’s Nick Arama reported, Friday night’s vote for Speaker of the House did indeed go 15 rounds before Kevin McCarthy finally won after facing a rebellion from 20 Republicans who initially refused to vote for him. It was the longest speaker battle since 1853.California’s McCarthy finally won the speakership, but Florida congressman Matt Gaetz may have won the war. He was the leader of the pack of holdouts,...

    Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s tighty-whiteys are flying high on the flagpole outside of the Capital building this morning, indicating his abject surrender to the House Freedom Caucus and his castration as a House speaker. It’s a truly remarkable and historic turn of events. McCarthy’s concessions may allow him to be elected speaker, but they guarantee that the least governable House majority since the Civil War will emerge from the chaos. The concessions are in a “framework” deal that emerged early Friday morning. A “framework deal” is congress-speak for “we’re kind of close to an agreement but are trying to put pressure...

    National File has exclusively learned that 27 members of the House Freedom Caucus are prepared to vote for establishment leader Kevin McCarthy for Speaker, despite his refusal to get rid of Nancy Pelosi’s left-wing House rules, and his use of corrupt FTX money to sabotage conservatives in the 2022 midterms. National File has learned that, in addition to members like Reps. Jim Jordan (OH) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA), who are parroting uni-party talking points in their support of Kevin McCarthy, over two dozen more “conservative” members of the House Freedom Caucus say they’ll support the establishment leader on January...

    The House has a narrow (currently a 220-213 Republican majority that should be finalized at 222-213), and this slim majority has given the Republicans a unique opportunity to beclown themselves and sow doubt as to their ability to organize something as simple as a two-car funeral. The problem facing the new House majority is the same one that confronted Nancy Pelosi in the outgoing Congress. It takes 218 votes to pass a bill. If five Republicans defect, the bill goes nowhere unless the GOP starts corralling Democrat votes. Passing a bill with opposing party votes because you can’t get your...

    Mary Miller claimed victory Tuesday in Illinois’ 15th Congressional District. The Associated Press called the race for Miller. With 94% of precincts reporting, she led with 71.4% of the vote. Once-touted Englewood Whole Foods closes as shoppers mourn the health-focused grocer Trump-endorsed freshman Republican Miller battled Democrat Paul Lange of Mendon, a little-known candidate with a meager war chest. The newly redrawn 15th Congressional District covers 35 counties in central and Southern Illinois. In a rare incumbent versus incumbent race, Miller of Oakland defeated five-term Rep. Rodney Davis of Taylorville in the June primary. Born in Oak Park and raised...

    Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the Justice Department “appeared to be investigating the fake elector plot” because Rep. Scott Perry’s (R-PA) cell phone was seized by the FBI. Anchor Margaret Brennan asked, “We learned this past week that your colleague, Congressman Scott Perry, who leads the Freedom Caucus- the Justice Department seized his cell phone as part of their investigation into the attempts to overturn the election results in 2020 and that slate of fake electors. The committee looked into his actions and the slate of fake electors. We heard during the public...

    House Freedom Caucus Chairman Scott Perry (R-Pa.) confirmed that he has received his cell phone back from the FBI after the agency had seized it a few days back. On Aug. 9, a day after raiding former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida, FBI agents had taken Perry’s phone as part of a separate investigation. At the time, Perry was traveling with his family. Speaking to “Capitol Report” on NTD News, the GOP member confirmed that he has received his phone. He is still uninformed as to why the phone was confiscated by the FBI. However, Perry was informed...

    Earlier this week, Gop Rep. Madison Cawthorn (NC) sat down for an explosive interview where he spilled the beans about the DC Swamp’s depraved debauchery that allegedly sees politicians regularly participating in cocaine-fueled benders and wild orgies. Cawthorn discussed being invited to orgies by the DC elites and seeing politicians that he “looked up to” for years doing hard drugs, like cocaine, in front of him. “You’re Asking Me to Do What?” – Madison Cawthorn Talks about the ‘DC elites’ Having Orgies and Doing Cocaine (VIDEO) Naturally, Cawthorn’s damning claims caused quite a stir among the DC elite, including catching...

    Rep. Madison Cawthorn should out the fellow Republicans he claims invited him to orgies and snorted cocaine in front of him, the leader of the conservative Freedom Caucus said. Freedom Caucus Chairman Scott Perry said he plans to speak to caucus member Cawthorn about comments he made in a podcast likening the Capitol Hill culture to the Netflix series “House of Cards.” “I think it is important, if you’re going to say something like that, to name names,” Perry, a Pennsylvania Republican, said of Cawthorn in an interview with Politico. The comments from freshman congressman Cawthorn, 26, have led to...

    A Cumberland County man already running for office said Wednesday that he is pivoting to a bigger stage as the shock waves from Eugene DePasquale’s non-candidacy for Pennsylvania’s 10th Congressional District continue to wash over through the midstate. Rick Coplen, a retired Army officer and current Carlisle school board member residing in Dickinson Township, has become the first - but maybe not the last - to give regional Democrats what they wanted most this week: a candidate to challenge incumbent Rep. Scott Perry, R-York County. “The family meeting to discuss this decision was short and sweet,” Coplen said in announcing...

    Donald Trump's closest Hill allies are privately lobbying the former President to get involved in a Republican-on-Republican matchup in Illinois, a potentially messy scenario that has sparked internal strife in the party and prompted GOP leaders to launch a counter-campaign aimed at keeping Trump on the sidelines. At the center of it all is freshman Rep. Mary Miller, a member of the hard-line House Freedom Caucus who has been left without a seat after redistricting. Now she's deciding whether to challenge fellow Illinois Republican Reps. Rodney Davis or Mike Bost. Hoping to boost Miller's political prospects, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene...

Andy Biffs (R-Ariz.), who was term-limited. “For the past six years, I have stood shoulder to shoulder with the men and women of the Freedom Caucus as we have tirelessly fought to hold the line to promote liberty, safety and prosperity for Americans,” Perry said in a statement on Monday evening. “I am grateful to continue to carry the torch for these champions of freedom.” Biggs will serve as chairman of the group until Jan. 1, which is when his current term...

    *** Attorney General Ken Paxton just got another Republican primary challenger, but this time it is someone who has been close to him for years: state Rep. Matt Krause. The Fort Worth lawmaker and founding member of the House Freedom Caucus says he is running as the “faithful conservative fighter,” hoping to bring a similar conservative ideology to the position that Paxton is known for — but without the legal troubles that have dogged him for most of his time in office. Krause is the third serious primary opponent to announce against Paxton. The field already includes Land Commissioner George...
