Kevin McCarthy Becomes a Man?

Follow-up to the last post: McCarthy smashes the media for flacking for Schiff and Swalwell. It's a lot more than the quote printed above the video.

The media keeps saying "But Santos," but he says, "Is Santos on the Intel Committee?" Then he points out that Schiff and Swalwell have repeatedly lied too, but their voters voted for them, and the voters get to decide. So Santos' voters get to decide, too.

Watch the whole thing.

Some quotes from Matt Margolis at PJM:

"What did Adam Schiff do as the chairman of the Intel Committee? What Adam Schiff did--use his power as a chairman and lie to the American public, even the inspector general said it," McCarthy said, before going through several of Schiff's offenses, including lying about the Nunes Memo, and using his position as chairman of the Intelligence Committee to lie about Trump/Russia collusion and the Hunter Biden laptop.

"So no, he does not have a right to sit on that [committee]," McCarthy said.

He points out that Intel is different because what happens there, "You don't know." What he means -- and I think he should take the time to spell this out -- is that anyone on this committee can tell whatever lie he likes, and no one can check the record to see if it's true, because the record is classified and closed to the public.

That puts Adam Schiff's serial Disinformation in a different category than the serial lies told by an ordinary Democrat. Schiff manipulated the state-secret classification laws of the Untied States in order to bulletproof his lies.

So no, he doesn't get to do that any more. He is gone.

And he can take the Fang Fang Bang-Bang Anal Karaoke Machine with him.

2 I will believe McCarthy is a real boy when he does something of real substance.

Denying committee assignments (after someone else did it first) and being mildly confrontational with the press is nice, but it's not using his power as Speaker to force through a budget that guts the administrative state and then going home for months while the government tries to function without funds.

From Insty:
Your view on whether what he is accomplishing is good or bad may vary, but the way DeSantis is racking up wins and forcing companies/organizations to back down on key cultural issues is unprecedented for a Governor.

This is the sad reality of the system and how things are structured today. You just try to turn someone to the right by encouragement and punishment.

But treason and blatant hostility toward the constitution and their own party shouldn't be rewarded with anything, ever. This isn't "puppy crapped the carpet" or "puppy chewed up my PS5 controller". Its "Puppy killed my daughter in her crib."

Pompeo also said when he served on the committee with Schiff , he started holding back info because of Schiff sending that info to places it should not have been.

Politicians are motivated by doing things that are in their best self-interest. If McCarthy or anyone else finds they get rewarded by doing things we like they will do more of them. Some of them are hopelessly corrupt like Biden or so insulated that they can get away with doing the wrong things like McConnell but most can be influenced if it helps their political position and that includes McCarthy.

Well McCarthy has already publicly announced multiple times and claims he has informed McConnell that the House will be returning to regular order and sending individual spending bills so if you are right I would expect McCarthy will be toast since agreed to a very low threshold for a vote of No Confidence.

183 DU is all excited based on this article that there is dissent in the House GOP, and McCarthy is finished!

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is preparing to hold a floor vote in the coming weeks on removing Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota from the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, citing previous comments from Omar perceived as anti-Semitic and what he says was a precedent set by House Democrats.

But at least one House Republican — Rep. Victoria Spartz of Indiana — has firmly declared that she will not vote for the resolution.

"Speaker McCarthy is taking unprecedented actions this Congress to deny some committee assignments to the Minority without proper due process again," Spartz said in a statement on Tuesday. "As I spoke against it on the House floor two years ago, I will not support this charade again. Speaker McCarthy needs to stop 'bread and circuses' in Congress and start governing for a change."

190 A Virginia teacher who was shot by a disabled six-year-old pupil texted a loved one an hour before she was wounded to say the boy was armed and school officials were failing to act, a source has revealed.

Abbey Zwerner, 25, had just finished reading a story when the child pulled out the handgun and shot her in the chest in front of her first grade class at Richneck Elementary School in Newport News on January 6.

A source close to the investigation told NBC that Zwerner texted a loved one saying she was 'frustrated because she was trying to get help with this child, for this child, and then when she needed help, no one was coming.'

He heard a line that his constituency would like, so he stood. Chuck Schumer gave him the stink eye, so he sat back down.

He then went from winning by over 20 points to winning by 3. Then he has spent the first two years of the Biden presidency trying to thread an unthreadable needle.

Remember when he killed the Green New Deal and BBB? He was king of WV. 3 months later, he helped pass BBB anyway with empty promises about pipelines in WV that Schumer backed down from. He also voted for KBJ without question. No one bothered to predict that he might be a holdout. All of that, and suddenly he has no shot. Hell, if someone tried, they could probably take out in the Democrat primary.

Posted by: AlaBAMA at January 25, 2023 01:00 PM (mE7cY)


McCarthy knows that his much coveted leadership position is tenuous and the number of voters greatly dissatisfied with the DC status quo is growing, not shrinking. Even without confidence votes, he's toast if The Brigade just stop voting for stuff he brings up.

They will, but white males Schiff and Swalwell will still need a miracle to win the Dem nomination for the Senate (Feinstein's seat) in 2024. Or Pelosi, the political Godmother of both, needs to get all challengers taken-down before the primary, one way or another. But does Pelosi back Schiff or Swalwell?

260 Remember back to the "Ukraine Call" under Trump -- Schiff and his democrat buddies were all in charge of the committee. They came out publicly to their MSM buddies to declare unprecedented and dangerous coercion by Trump during a call to the Ukraine leader, which the media then dutifully reported. Trump retorted that his call was "perfect" and Schiff -- hiding behind the veil of secrecy that he *had to* operate behind, for the sake of protecting the sanctity of State Intelligence -- reiterated that Trump was bad and if we could ever know the extent of it, we'd all be shocked.

Trump made the bold move of releasing the transcripts, and Zelensky even came out to say there was no perceived intimidation.

But Schiff continued with his fabrication to smear Trump, and it wasn't until Republicans showed some balls and invited cameras in to finally reveal that -- in fact -- Schiff was lying his ass off and had nothing to back up his malicious claims.

A normal person would have shown a bit of embarrassment and contrition. Schiff's no normal person.

Time will tell. My expectation is that he will do nothing to arrest the decline and will more likely to contribute to its acceleration. That is who he is, Uniparty is who he is, he's a hardcore Establishment operator and wants no reform. He was cornered once and caved into some demands. Good.

If I am proven wrong, I will acknowledge it. I have no reason to hope for that, though. I also have no reason to hope that if he returns to regular order - that's part of the deal he made - that he will do anything to curtail spending or administrative bloat. But again, I am open to being wrong on all of this.

346 "The problem isn't the internal House process to budgeting, it's the entire mentality of government funding."

Actually it's the electorate's inability/unwillingness to understand or act in response to all this.

The advantage in regular order - in a different country, it now appears - was that there was potential political accountability for specific votes related to appropriations. Even down to the committee level, in mark-ups.

CRs (formerly used as true temporary stopgaps to prevent "shutdowns" for a week or two) roll everything together, usually with little time to consider, and with few if any attempts at amendment (where specific issue accountability can occur, in theory).

But with an electorate that rarely seems to know or care about the substance of the way Congress votes, even in areas directly affecting people, regular order will likely prove to be a bit of a fizzle. But still better than the current approach.

Well the doctrine is that the acts are intrinsically disordered. You may have inclinations toward such acts, and not act on them. That's not sinful. Managment of your behavior and your lusts is one of the things that applies to you whether or not you are a homosexual or heterosexual. Its not a sin/crime to be heterosexual either, but it is if I'm raping or have multiple wives. Or looking a porn on the internet (not a crime these days unless its underage).

The whole sodogarchy thing is just a stalking horse for the destruction of standards, commoditizing people.

But then... two consecutive HMLs from both parties had there weird, gay living arrangements come to light in the press. One's husband got beaten with a hammer by a piece of rough trade, and the other's terribly toupee'd paramour keeps a copy of Monica's dress on the wall of an Oval Office bugger dungeon.

Whoever is writing this stuff is a comedy genius.

The enemies of the people are ridiculous and it is best to laugh in these fallen times. Otherwise your blood pressure will rise to dangerous levels as you contemplate the total betrayal of the US by history's twisted mediocrities elevated to high office. Only the latter emperors of Rome compete with the title of most ridiculous and loathsome leaders.

380 I have a fairly correct (I think) idea of who I am and what I look like. I have a decent gauge of what "my league" is. If you're way outside of it and you make a move, I'll get suspicious.

381 Do they say, "This is ex cathedra?"
-------------
Yes; and it's only been used twice. Both about the Virgin Mary -- the Immaculate Conception and the Assumption.

382 This is ex cathedra?" Do they actually sit on a throne somewhere when they're doing it?
--
Pretty much. Literally. It is usually something that is written down and debated for a couple of hundred years, seemingly settled by prior doctors of the Church, the Church members, the sense of the faithful then appears to adopt it over those hundred years in practice, then they have a conference, the college of cardinals works out the wording, and it is delivered ex cathedra from the chair of peter. Its not in anyway a spontaneous whim. It is a recognition of a prexisting reality, already recognized by active practice/acceptance of the faithful. Like the immaculate conception. (which I know is going to set off some people. Its mostly because people don't really know how this stuff occurred works that they get upset. That's not to say they agree with it, but its not crazy inconsistent contradictory stuff. Until maybe this guy - but he's hamstrung, until he gets more like minded people in the college of cardinals. he's been hard a work on that)

When it comes to "leagues", just avoid the minors.

I'm afraid that our twisted mediocrities have BTO's hit song on their minds--You Ain't Seen Nothin Yet.

And if a nuclear war breaks out, they would be correct.

389 Now why would Zelensky "safeguard" the weapons we give to him? He's not serious about ending the war.

392 I'm sure the press is baffled because they have studiously avoided reporting on the many lies of Swallwell or Schiff.
