  • With Speaker Vote In Chaos, Former Rep. Justin Amash Offers To Step In

    The Daily Caller ^ | January 04, 2023 | MICHAEL GINSBERG
    Former Michigan Rep. Justin Amash is offering to serve as Speaker of the House in the event that Republicans and Democrats can not elect a sitting member to lead the lower chamber. “I’m here because I think this process is really uncertain where it goes. And I think I provide a good alternative to a lot of the options being discussed,” Amash told reporters at the Capitol. “I’m just here at this point because this is interesting, this is exciting in many ways. I think it’s a positive thing for representative government that we have a disagreement on the floor.”...

    Republican leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Wednesday made it clear that the forthcoming GOP majority in the U.S. House will hold the Biden administration and Democrats accountable from “day one” — from investigating the origins of the Chinese coronavirus to the Department of Justice targeting concerned parents to the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan. “You deserve to know the origins of COVID. You deserve to know why the DOJ went after concerned parents. You deserve to know why we failed to keep American lives safe in Afghanistan. On day one a Republican majority will begin holding this administration accountable,” McCarthy...

    Republicans ran to fix Washington," reads the memo from the House Freedom Caucus obtained by Just the News. "We cannot continue to govern in the same way that broke it." The seven-year-old caucus has grown in influence and size in recent years, giving rise to GOP stars such as former Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, likely House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona and Pennsylvania Rep. Scott Perry, the current chairman of the caucus. It has long fought for fiscal discipline, law and order and massive reductions in federal agencies, budgets and regulations....

    The House Freedom Caucus has endorsed a failed GOP establishment candidate backed by Liz Cheney and Kevin McCarthy for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 8th District, throwing their support behind former Mitt Romney staffer Jim Bognet, who lost the race for the same seat in 2020. Bognet, a former Mitt Romney and John McCain staffer who has had his congressional ambitions backed by Liz Cheney and Kevin McCarthy, lost the 2020 race for the 8th District seat to Democrat Rep. Matt Cartwright. Back then, Bognet was the clear establishment candidate in a wide GOP primary field and used a pro-establishment PAC run...

    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...

    The House Freedom Caucus’ incoming chairman said that congressional Republicans have to devise a clear agenda and messaging ahead of the 2022 midterm elections in order to convince voters that there are distinct differences between them and establishment Democrats “in an era of freewheeling spending and large government,” Just the News reported. “We need to be in contact with more individual citizens and every single district in every state bringing the message to them so that they understand what the difference is and that there is a true difference,” Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) told the outlet.

    House Republicans put off a vote on Rep. Elise Stefanik's bid to replace Liz Cheney as the No. 3 GOP leader amid pressure from right-wing lawmakers that she vouch for her conservative credentials. -snip- But Stefanik, an upstate New York lawmakers who came to Congress with a more centrist background and worked for Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential campaign, has been facing blowback from conservative lawmakers who hold powerful sway in the GOP Conference. Now, she is scheduled to meet Wednesday night with members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, which will be seeking assurances. Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.), a Trump...

    Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, reintroduced three pro-life bills Thursday, a day after President Joe Biden was inaugurated the 46th president of the United States. “The next four years of the Biden administration will bring out the worst abortion policies and edicts that our nation has experienced since the Roe v Wade decision,” Biggs said in a statement provided to The Daily Signal. He added that “the pro-life community will rise above these challenges to grow our movement and to bring about an end to abortion on-demand.”

    House Freedom Caucus (HFC) Chairman Mark Meadows said the powerful conservative group is planning to craft a bill aimed at reforming the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative. President Donald Trump placed a six month limit in September on the Obama-era executive order, which provides a safeguard for more than 800,000 illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children. The measure provides Congress a window to deliver a legislative solution for the program. Meadows told reporters Tuesday the HFC is hoping to put together a working group to begin constructing the measure within the week. “We’re actually working on...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan, at a private dinner earlier this year, said he thought only “one member” wanted to build a wall across the entire U.S.-Mexico border, Breitbart News has learned from multiple sources with direct knowledge of the comments, including former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO). The dinner, sources said, took place on the eve of the House’s passage of two relatively minor immigration bills at the end of June: Kate’s Law and sanctuary city reforms. The far wider reaching Davis-Oliver Act was tabled at the same time. “Ryan told a group of Republicans he met with … that only...

    For eight years, I have joined my colleagues in the fight to repeal and replace the train wreck that is Obamacare. This was the call heard around the nation for years, particularly leading up to President Trump's historic victory. We promised the American people that if they supported us, help would be on the way. As a conservative, I believe that the federal government should have a limited role in our personal lives, including health care. As a cancer patient, I knew the importance of getting this bill right and replacing Obamacare with a patient-centered solution that also ensures access...
  • Freedom Caucus: True Conservatives or just Trump Saboteurs?

    So did they oppose Ryancare cuz it sucked or to hurt Trump? Do people like Mo Brooks really want to simply repeal or is he just bluffing and throwing us red meat knowing it wont go anywhere? People are all over the map on this and the only way we can continue winning is to be unified. I am noob and pretty uninformed on individual voting records etc. But like everyone else here I want as much of obamacare as possible GONE ASAP. I would appreciate feedback on the best strategey on achieving this goal

    The centrist Tuesday Group affirmed at a meeting Wednesday that it will not meet with the conservative House Freedom Caucus to negotiate changes to an ObamaCare replacement bill, according to Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.). “I am not speaking for the White House; I'm not speaking for the Speaker; but I will speak for the Tuesday Group,” Collins, a member of the group, told reporters. “We have never negotiated with the Freedom Caucus. There was never a meeting scheduled with the Freedom Caucus. We will never meet with the Freedom Caucus, because it's not appropriate for a group of ad hoc...
  • Rep. Justin Amash Hammers Trump's 'Unlawful' Immigration Ban (Freedom Caucus)

    03/30/2017 8:31:36 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 183 replies ^ | January 29, 2017
    "Unlawful" and "extreme" is how West Michigan Rep. Justin Amash described President Donald Trump's executive order to ban refugees and citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries. "It's not lawful to ban immigrants on the basis of nationality," Amash said in the statement. Trump's order blocks citizens from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia and Libya from entering the country for at least 90 days. It also bans refugees from anywhere in the world for 120 days -- and from Syria indefinitely. "Ultimately, the executive order appears to be more about politics than safety," Amash said. "If the concern is radicalism and...

They oppose Trump and have never moved beyond losing in the primary. They are still fighting the 2016 primary race they lost.

    Bad move by Trump. Ryan and the globalist big government GOPe RINOs are the problem not the Freedom Caucus. Trump is supposed to be draining the swamp by now, not swimming in it. Put the interest of American citizens first! Freedom not socialism and tyranny!! Good grief! Dump Obamacare already! Should have been done on day one and we’d be way on down the road to draining the swamp by now! We the people have been demanding a full repeal for seven long years and that's the position Trump took with his original health care goal at the beginning of...

    It is hard to overestimate the damage the Freedom Caucus has done to the fledgling presidency of Donald Trump, and to the country. By blocking the American Health Care Act of 2017, the conservative group has guaranteed that Americans will struggle forward under the burden of Obamacare. In the next few months insurers will announce their premium hikes for the coming year; chances are, given the continuing withdrawal of major companies from the marketplaces and the ongoing failure of the bill to attract enough young and healthy participants, the new rates will not be pretty. Last year premiums went up...

    Texas Republican Congressman Ted Poe has announced he is giving up membership in Hillary’s Favorite Caucus over their unwillingness to support President Trump: “I have resigned from the House Freedom Caucus,” Poe said in a statement. “In order to deliver on the conservative agenda we have promised the American people for eight years, we must come together to find solutions to move this country forward. Saying no is easy, leading is hard, but that is what we were elected to do. Leaving this caucus will allow me to be a more effective Member of Congress and advocate for the people...
  • Freedom Caucus Majority Backs Paul Ryan for House Speaker

    A strong majority of anti-establishment conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus voted on Wednesday night to support Representative Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin for House speaker, assuring that he will have the votes to secure the post next week and averting a leadership crisis for Republicans. Mr. Ryan indicated that he was prepared to seize the gavel and try to bring unity to his party, which has been riven over how House leaders exert authority over members. That fight had become so bitter that it forced the resignation of Speaker John A. Boehner and derailed the candidacy of the majority...
