Not enemies, narcissists or domestic terrorists
Current Events, Just musing

They are not enemies, narcissists or domestic terrorists and they are winning

Today opens with some massive wins, thanks to the 20 or so Republicans who refuse to just tow the line and let Kevin McCarthy waltz into the Speakership. While being mocked, derided and called all sorts of horrible names, these 20 folks are actually carrying out the business of what it means to be a member of the Legislative Branch.

After losing his 6th consecutive vote late yesterday, it seems Kevin McCarthy has finally been dragged kicking and screaming toward following the Constitution as crafted, not as it has been perverted. Because of their determination, here are some of the concessions Kevin McCarthy has decided to agree to in an effort to win more votes.

First, he has agreed to a one-member “motion to vacate.” This gets us back to where we were prior to Nancy Pelosi. Second, McCarthy is prepared to give the House Freedom Caucus two seats on the House Rules Committee. Third, there will now be a vote on term limits and fourth, there will be major changes to the appropriations process. One of the most important tools for lawmakers is the power of the purse and thanks to the hold-outs, there is now a deal for standalone votes on each of the 12 annual appropriations bills, with an open rule to allow amendments from the floor from any lawmaker.

These are fantastic developments and would not have happened were it not for the strength, courage and conviction of those 20 or so Republicans who are standing on principle and fighting for a return to the Constitutional processes as originally designed.

On a sour note, we have to deal with two less than stellar examples of the GOP. First, RNC Chair Rona McDaniel took her condescending attitude to the Stuart Varney Show and basically said Americans are too stupid to follow such concepts and rule-making and motions to vacate. In an effort to just look united without actually being united, she took the stance to belittle the intellect of most Americans.

On top of that, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) showed his true colors when we appeared on the Guy Benson Show and called the 20 conservatives domestic terrorists. He later was on CNN, talking off the cuff in the halls of Congress, calling the conservatives narcissists and enemies. It was not just uncalled for, but a disgusting display of how the swamp dwellers really feel about our Constitutional process.

Finally, Harmeet Dhillon, who is running for the RNC Chair to take it away from Rona McDaniel, spoke about her views on the Republican Party. In a short sound bite, she captures why she is such a better fit to be the head of the Republican National Committee. As she says, it’s one thing to lose in one cycle, but after losing three cycles in a row, you should not get awarded a fourth. It does not work that way in business, it should not work that way in government.
