GOP Leader McCarthy Opposes Commission Investigating January 6th “Insurrection.”

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy announced his opposition to a commission investigating the events at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th. Citing the Democrat’s refusal to investigate violent acts committed by their supporters and activists, he asserted that he “cannot support” the legislation that would create the supposedly bipartisan commission: “The renewed focus by Democrats to now stand up an additional commission ignores the political violence that has struck American cities, a Republican Congressional baseball practice, and, most recently, the deadly attack on Capitol Police on April 2, 2021. Given the political misdirections that have marred this process, given the

Kevin McCarthy’s Luxury Rental Firm’s Largest Shareholder Is Mao’s Grandson.

Following revelations that corporate lobbyist and Biden family acolyte Frank Luntz rents a room to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, The National Pulse can reveal the Chinese Communist Party ties to the luxury building both men call home. The downtown D.C. residence – which The National Pulse is choosing not to name for security reasons – is owned and leased by Sotheby’s International Realty. The company is an offshoot of the auction house Sotheby’s, whose largest shareholder is Taikang, a Chinese Communist Party-linked life insurance company “run by the grandson-in-law of Chairman Mao Zedong.” As The Wall Street Journal also

The U.S. Capitol Was Attacked by a Nation of Islam Follower and “GOP Leader” Kevin McCarthy Hasn’t Said a Word About It. It’s Time for Him to Resign.

Kevin McCarthy styles himself as the “GOP Leader,” but never shows any leadership. On the back of an attack on the U.S. Capitol by a Nation of Islam follower, McCarthy chose to send prayers instead of taking the fight to the radical left who encouraged this attack. If it was a right-wing attacker, he’d have been condemning it by now. It’s time for McCarthy – a coward – to resign. McCarthy is routinely comfortable attacking his own side. Whether it’s unproven or unsubstantiated attacked on Marjorie Taylor-Greene or Matt Gaetz, Kevin McCarthy is there for it. But when it’s an

Who Will Replace Paul Ryan as Speaker? These Are the Contenders.

House Republicans have been in various stages of chaos — both healthy and unhealthy — ever since retaking control of the chamber in 2010. Speaker John Boehner was constantly trying to cut deals with President Obama, usually giving the President most or all of what he wanted, so Republicans wanted him gone. Boehner resigned in 2015 and is now a high-paid lobbyist, while his lieutenant, former Majority Leader Eric Cantor, was taken out in a shocking primary defeat. Their clearest successor at the time was Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, but he stumbled quickly and took himself out of the running.

Walter Jones Is Right: Moral Standards Matter in Speaker’s Race

Walter Jones, Congressman from North Carolina’s 3rd district for the past 20 years, in a letter to Cathy McMorris Rodgers, chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, called on candidates for leadership to withdraw if aware of “any misdeeds” likely to embarrass the House.  His office characterized these “misdeeds” as “moral turpitude issues,” but he seemed to have marital infidelity particularly in mind.  Two days later, Kevin McCarthy withdrew from the Speaker’s race. Good for Jones.  Why shouldn’t the Republican Speaker of the House be held to a standard of marital fidelity?  The old bromide is that personal behavior has nothing

Boehner Out as Speaker

Speaker John Boehner made headlines this morning by making a surprise announcement: he will be retiring from Congress at the end of October. More from The New York Times: Speaker John A. Boehner, under intense pressure from conservatives in his party, will resign one of the most powerful positions in government and give up his House seat at the end of October, throwing Congress into chaos as it tries to avert a government shutdown. Mr. Boehner, who was first elected to Congress in 1990, made the announcement in an emotional meeting with his fellow Republicans on Friday morning. The Ohio representative
