Kevin McCarthy is Said to be the Leader in Getting Support for Speaker of the House
Most people who follow politics know by now that Jon Boehner announced his resignation at the end of last week and plans to resign his position as a U.S. Representative as well after October30. Boehner’s days were looking numbered for a while now, as the Republican base, true Conservatives, are fed up with him pushing the Obama agenda and lying to his constituents about fighting against Obamacare, fighting against executive (un-constitutional) amnesty, trying to reduce government spending, and all of the other things that Republicans have been promising to fight for. In the landslide elections of 2010 and 2014 that put Republicans in control of the House of Representatives and the Senate, respectively, Republican victories were achieved by an active and informed conservative base, many of which are labeled as “The Tea Party,” whether they choose to accept this categorical name or not. Since taking the gavel in January of 2011, Jon Boehner has been nothing less than either a cheerleader for Barack Obama’s far left agenda or at least a willing pushover. Boehner has worked hard in the House of Representatives to punish true Republicans by removing them from committees and by funding the campaigns of their opponents. When the Republican in Name Only Majority leader, Eric Cantor, was defeated in the 2014 Republican primary by Dave Brat, a true Conservative, Jon Boehner got his fellow RINO, Kevin McCarthy, in the position. Since then, Kevin McCarthy has just been a servant for pushing Jon Boehner’s weak responses and overall support for Barack Obama’s agenda. In announcing his resignation, Jon Boehner all but endorsed Kevin McCarthy to take his position.
Kevin McCarthy is Just Jon Boehner, Jr.
In addition tot he fact that Jon Boehner has helped Kevin McCarthy rise to the ranks, Boehner even puts his name forward as being a good replacement for him, and furthermore, he mentioned no other names. Jon Boehner was pushed to the max in his most recent primary election campaign by a virtually unknown Republican candidate. He knows darn well that he will not be re-elected as he has only progressively got worse in the meantime as far as exhibiting fake resistance against the Obama agenda and all out support for it. Passing Obama trade and the biggest spending bill in our nation’s history are just two examples of his all out support and meaningless statement votes about disagreeing with Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty is an example of his fake resistance. It’s not simply the fact that Jon Boehner should be against Barack Obama’s agenda, it’s really a matter of the fact that Obama’s far-left agenda lies in direct opposition tot he Republican Party’s stated platform. Not only that, Jon Boehner campaigns as a Conservative Republican and then governs in a way that is in direct opposition to his campaign promises. Boehner had little or no chance of being elected again, so he decided to resign now, since he has to wait a year before he can become a K Street Lobbyist by law. In a year’s time, Boehner can shop himself as a former Speaker of the House to lobbying firms that want to peddle influence for hire. He would be following in the footsteps of well-known former RINO speakers like Trent Lott and Denny Hastert. It would be good timing for Boehner’s lucrative career move since it would be a couple of months before the next congress is seated in January, 2016.
Just about all Kevin McCarthy has to offer is that he is the current Republican Majority Leader, which means nothing other than he rose to power. He has no significant legislation under his belt that fits the Republican party’s platform and has a voting record that is about equal to any Democrat. Now that the members of the Establishment Republican clique are all lining up behind Kevin McCarthy, it looks like the Republican Party’s woes will continue. The Republican Party leadership will still be defying their party’s platform, ignoring their base voters, and supporting the Democrat Party agenda. With Mitch McConnell still being the RINO leader of the senate, nothing will change. Of course, Conservatives know this, so the party will still be bleeding support as it continues to frustrate those who actually believe in the party’s principles of a smaller federal government, spending controls, support of the U.S. Constitution, and a support for a strong national defense. We are realizing that we really have no reason to vote for RINOs anymore. They vote the same as the Democrats, so there is no harm in leaving our ballots blank in the sections where a RINO is running against a Democrat, because there is no difference. when Conservatives make this stand of not voting for RINOs, then the Republican Party will realize that is has very little support as far as population is concerned. They only have their big money donors and cronies as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce left. They may give lots of dollars, but they are few in voting numbers. As a result, these donors will continue to fund Democrats, as they are already doing, but in larger numbers, because, when power players want to buy politicians, they want to buy the ones who will actually win, and the RINOs won’t be able to now that their base is waking up and getting VERY PISSED OFF.
Of course, the country won’t start seeing things get better until the Democrat drones wake up from their hypnotic state of believing the Democrat Party’s lies. That, unfortunately, will not happen anytime soon. Too many people fall for the propaganda and some immediate freebies, and do not see the impending downfall of this country with the staggering amount of debt it has and the almost empty entitlement coffers it has.
