  • Maria Bartiromo Attempts Cleanup Saying, “Democracy Is Messy” – Matt Gaetz Has Hit a Nerve

    09/25/2023 7:03:12 PM PDT · by qaz123 · 33 replies
    Yesterday, Maria Bartiromo was very visibly entrenched in her effort to defend House Speaker Kevin McCarthy from the criticism of Representative Matt Gaetz. During the combative interview, Ms. Bartiromo showed a transparent agenda to support the professionally Republican GOPe perspective. Today, following a considerable amount of backlash, and eyes-wide-open to the motives and intents of Bartiromo, she attempts cleanup by repeating the phrase, “democracy is messy” as a justification for her support of McCarthy Inc.

    A top Democrat in the House has detailed how her caucus is prepared to help Republican Speaker Kevin McCarthy keep his job in exchange for ending the impeachment inquiry he launched into President Joe Biden’s actions just weeks ago. Congresswoman Katherine Clark (D-MA), the minority whip, promised she could marshal the votes to help McCarthy avoid an attempt by conservative Republicans to vacate the speaker’s chair which would require near-unanimous support from Democrats as well. Rep. Clark told POLITICO that she also intends to force McCarthy into a corner on aid to Ukraine and his ongoing negotiations with the White...

    Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) announced Friday that he will strip funding for Ukraine out of a Pentagon spending bill after Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) joined conservatives in blocking the legislation from advancing earlier this week. McCarthy said he would remove the $300 million for Ukraine currently in the Pentagon appropriations bill and hold a separate vote on the funding. “It would be out and voted on by itself,” McCarthy said when asked about the Ukraine aid in the Pentagon appropriations bill.

    Volodymyr Zelensky met House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Thursday in his battle to persuade skeptical Republicans in Congress to keep sending aid. McCarthy and Zelensky met behind closed doors, after the Speaker rejected pleas for a joint address to Congress. Congress has already authorized more than $110 billion to Kyiv since Vladimir Putin's invasion, and some members of the GOP have warned the White House they will oppose Biden's request to send another $24 billion.

    Senate Republicans are predicting that Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) will need to reach out to House Democrats to get the votes to prevent a government shutdown at the end of next week. GOP senators don’t think McCarthy will be able to unify his entire GOP conference behind any measure to prevent an Oct. 1 shutdown and will have to rely on Democrats to keep federal departments and agencies open. But they predict the Speaker won’t reach out across the aisle until the last possible moment to avoid a backlash from House conservatives, who are threatening to offer a motion to...

    U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Kevin McCarthy said Republicans will try again to move forward on fiscal 2024 spending legislation on Thursday, with a procedural vote on a defense appropriations bill. After a 2-1/2 hour closed-door meeting with members of his Republican majority, the California Republican also said lawmakers were "very close" to agreement on a short-term stopgap measure to avert a government shutdown on Sept. 30. break On Tuesday, opposition from five Republicans defeated a vote intended to open debate on a $886 billion defense spending bill. Those five Republicans were hardliners who wanted assurances that fiscal 2024 appropriations...

    House Democrats have begun internal discussions about how to deal with the prospects of a chaotic situation: The possibility that Speaker Kevin McCarthy could lose his job in an unprecedented vote on the floor. While no decisions have been made, some of the party’s moderates are privately signaling they’d be willing to cut a deal to help McCarthy stave off a right-wing revolt – as long as the speaker meets their own demands. Publicly, Democratic leader Hakeem Jeffries has not weighed in on how he’d want his members to manage a challenge to McCarthy’s speakership, saying it’s hypothetical at this...

    House Republican leaders worked to salvage a short-term spending bill that sparked angry disagreements among the party’s rank-and-file, but they remained short of the support needed to pass the measure and show the party could unite to avert a government shutdown. A procedural motion to advance the legislation was canceled for the day to allow more time for talks, and an afternoon measure related to advancing a full-year military appropriations bill failed after five Republicans voted against the rule. That marked an embarrassing reminder to leaders that dissidents were willing to derail routine business to make their protests heard. “I...

    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...

    Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen went after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) Tuesday over House Republicans delaying passage of a continuing resolution to fund the government until both parties can agree on 2024 spending bills. “There’s absolutely no reason why we should have a government shutdown,” Yellen said in an MSNBC interview. “Democrats in both the House and the Senate and Republicans in the Senate are ready to pass appropriations bills or a continuing resolution to keep the government open and operating for the American people.”

    Republican infighting reached new heights this week as House Speaker Kevin McCarthy engaged in a war of words with conservative hard-liners on his right flank. Republicans in the Senate watched their counterparts in the House with dismay as internal squabbles over spending put McCarthy’s future as speaker in doubt and increased the odds of a government shutdown at the end of the month. “It’s a shitshow in the House. It’s always a shitshow in the House,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said. “Eventually, what’s going to happen is a government shutdown, [and it] will not go well for us.” Rep. Steve...

    I just watched Maria Bartiromo’s interview with Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy. It’s pretty clear that McCarthy wants to avoid a shutdown at almost any cost. At first, I thought, “Yeah, we need to get rid of him,” but with whom are we going to replace him? Let’s face it, we’re stuck with McCarthy. Below you’ll find a segment of the interview: [video at link] Politics is the art of compromise. So, here’s my second, more rational proposal for Mr. McCarthy. Give McCarthy a budget, any budget he wants, with three very specific caveats: - Zero funding for the...

    Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said on this week’s broadcast of FNC’s “Sunday Morning Futures” that President Donald Trump will be the 2024 Republican presidential nominee. Anchor Maria Bartiromo said, “All of that, the policies that you mentioned of the Biden administration, is one reason that Donald Trump is leading in the polls right now. What’s your take on this, that as we see more indictments of Donald Trump, he seems to be gaining in terms of popularity with the public? Will he be the nominee? ”

    Ian Sams, special assistant to the president and senior advisor to the White House Counsel's Office, labeled House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's (R-Calif) decision to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Biden "extreme politics at its worst. There's no evidence the President has done anything wrong. It's persecution of an innocent man." McCarthy pointed out "there is a video of Joe Biden bragging about using his status as vice-president to extort the firing of the Ukraine prosecutor who was investigating the company that was paying Hunter a million dollars a year to serve on its board of directors. There's Hunter's...

    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) questioned a reporter on Thursday until she admitted evidence exists against President Joe Biden for Republicans to launch an impeachment inquiry into him. While answering questions in the Capitol Building, Associated Press (AP) reporter Farnoush Amiri asked McCarthy about the argument that no evidence exists to show Joe Biden committed an impeachable offense.

    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy brutally savaged a reporter who questioned if there was any evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden. There are almost no words to describe how comical this is, as if there was any evidence to support the impeachment of former President Donald Trump. There was no evidence of Russian collusion, which turned out to be a hoax, the real big lie, and nothing to support the equally shoddy quid pro quo allegation regarding Ukraine aid and investigations into the Biden family.

    CNN humiliated itself Wednesday with a “fact check” admitting impeachment inquiry evidence put forth by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is true. “I appreciate CNN actually acknowledged that,” McCarthy told reporters Thursday. “They had to acknowledge that every alleged accusation that put us into impeachment inquiry is true.” “What was interesting was the headline, but more interesting was the fact checks. It was all true,” he added.
