    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who led the charge on removing Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House, has filed an ethics complaint against McCarthy after he reportedly assaulted Rep. Tim Burchett. As the Gateway Pundit previously reported, Andy Biggs of Arizona, Ken Buck of Colorado, Tim Burchett of Tennessee, Eli Crane of Arizona, Matt Gaetz of Florida, Bob Good of Virginia, Nancy Mace of South Carolina, and Matt Rosendale of Montana got fed up with McCarthy selling out to Democrats and decided America needed a new Speaker. But McCarthy would not go quietly. Gaetz and Mace also revealed that McCarthy...

    Speaking specifically of Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, McCarthy said the Republican Party would be “tremendously” better off if Gaetz lost his House seat. He had a similar comment to make about South Carolina’s Nancy Mace, predicting that she’d lose her seat in next year’s election. “If you’ve watched her, just her philosophy, and the flip-flopping, I don’t believe she wins reelection,” McCarthy said.

    The sad truth is that some people in our party are stupid. Statistically, that is inevitable since the parties are about evenly split. When you have 50% of the population, you’re going to have a certain percentage of the idiots. Well, the Republican Party is undoubtedly statistically within the band of normal, because we sure have our share of nitwits. And I’m tired of them. SNIP>>>>> The reality is that we somehow managed to get a Speaker last January and that Speaker was imperfect. Kevin McCarthy was not the guy I wanted for the job in the abstract. He was...
  • Tom Emmer wins Speaker nomination in GOP’s third try for the gavel

    The Hill ^ | 10/24/23 12:16 PM ET | Emily Brooks and Mychael Schnell
    House Republicans nominated House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) for Speaker on Tuesday, making him the third GOP lawmaker who will attempt to get 217 votes to secure the gavel. The conference selected Emmer — the No. 3 House Republican — for the position in a secret ballot during an internal election that lasted three hours, choosing him over six other candidates vying for the job. Two Republicans withdrew their names from the race before voting began. Emmer, 62, will now take his nomination to the House floor, where he will have to muster enough votes to win the gavel...
  • Former Soros Group Spokesperson Poised for Election as GOP House Speaker; Previously Advocated for Abolishing the Electoral College

    10/22/2023 5:51:07 AM PDT · by KC Burke · 53 replies
    House Republicans voted down Jim Jordan, a member from Ohio, as a candidate for the House Speaker position. The secret ballot concluded with 112 votes against Jordan and 86 in his favor. This ballot was cast after the House of Representatives lacked a Speaker for over two weeks, following a motion by Matt Gaetz to vacate the chair. Kevin McCarthy had also been removed from the position earlier in the month by a 216-210 vote. The eight Republicans that voted against McCarthy included Biggs, Buck, Burchett, Crane, Gaetz, Good, Mace, and Rosendale. After the recent ballot, Kevin McCarthy voiced his...

    As Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) saw his Speaker nomination end after three failed votes, several Republicans are offering to censure themselves to pave the way for him to take over the role. On Friday, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL.) joined six other Republicans in preparing to go to battle to ensure Jordan becomes Speaker of the House. In a letter to House Republicans, the GOP members said they are willing to be suspended, censured, or removed from the Conference to save Jordan's sinking ship. "If the holdouts who refuse to vote for Speaker-Designate Jim Jordan would be willing to 'vote with...

    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...

    I have examined FEC records that show McCarthy gave her $95,788.50 in March, two months after Boebert voted against him. And then 3 months later in June 2023, McCarthy gave Boebert another $31,327.63 I’m told these funds were given to Boebert by McCarthy’s Protect the House 2024 fund under the condition that she never support a motion to vacate against McCarthy. I am also in communication with some of her associates who have provided me with evidence of more shady campaign finance activity she’s engaged in. Lauren Boebert doesn’t want you to know that she was paid off by Kevin...

    Deseret News ^ | 10/5/2023 | Suzanne Bates
    Former House Speaker Paul Ryan said the historic vote to remove Kevin McCarthy from his role as speaker on Tuesday was “a total disgrace.” He also had strong words about former President Donald Trump, who he said was a “scourge” on the country and the Republican Party. snip Ryan said an “unprincipled demagogue” overthrew McCarthy for “just doing his job” — referring to Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., who coordinated the effort to remove McCarthy from his role, and who Ryan criticized by name later in his remarks. “The kind of populism we have right now is not rooted in principle....

    PJ Media ^ | 10/04/2023 | Paula Bolyard
    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) successfully led a coup against now-former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday. He managed to eke out a “win” by rallying the entire Democratic caucus and eight Republicans to oust him. It’s the first time that has happened in U.S. history. And it’s a total clown show. Not only does it distract from the already tense budget negotiations, but it makes a laughingstock of the GOP—and the U.S.—and gives Democrats even more leverage to push through their radical policies. Gaetz got a win, but at what cost? Sure, he’ll raise a lot of campaign money from...

    The Daily Beast ^ | October 3, 2023 | Brett Bachman
    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL)—who has been making enemies in recent days of members of his own party over his incessant campaign to oust House Speaker Kevin McCarthy—didn’t offer a motion to do so Monday as was widely expected, though he still promised to do so later in the week. As justification for his delay, Gaetz said he wanted more details on a “secret side deal” that he accused McCarthy of making with President Joe Biden on Ukraine funding—though it’s unclear whether such a deal has actually been struck. “Members of the Republican Party might vote differently on a motion to...

    @DarrenJBeattie Newt Gingrich positively embodies the swamp, a fat disgusting pig who has had his pink snout buried in the trough for nearly a half century Few are sleazier, slimier, and more representative of all that's repulsive about career GOP politicians RE: @newtgingrich The effort to expel Matt Gaetz for being a destructive, irresponsible anti-Republican may be a step too far. Expulsion from the House requires a two thirds vote. However expelling him from the House Republican Conference and eliminating all his committee assignments and all resources other than those an individual member is entitled to would be a rational...

    New York Rep. Mike Lawler on Sunday warned that hard-line Republican colleague Matt Gaetz's plan to call a vote on removing Speaker Kevin McCarthy would be "destructive to the country" and further delay conservatives' work on long-term government funding bills. "Nobody in our conference disagrees with the need to do single-subject spending bills. Nobody disagrees with the need to cut spending," Lawler told ABC "This Week" co-anchor Jonathan Karl. "In fact, it's one of the biggest reasons why I ran." Gaetz, in a separate interview on "This Week," denounced a temporary funding bill passed by Congress on Saturday to avert...

    A copy of a Resolution to remove Kevin McCarthy from his Speakership authored by Matt Gaetz back in September was reportedly found by a left-wing journalist in a restroom inside the Capitol. The Gateway Pundit reported that Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) slammed House Speaker Kevin McCarthy this morning for his “eight months of inaction” on Joe Biden and the Biden Crime Family. Gaetz further called on McCarthy to sign a subpoena for Hunter Biden’s records and testimony that he took the initiative to draft. This comes exactly one week after Gaetz threatened to remove Speaker McCarthy for being out of...
