As we all can see the red wave that was expected to come in during the midterm elections never showed up. However, there were some good things that came about through the election, one of which is that the way things look right now Republicans will retake control over the House of Representatives.

Of course, that means Nancy Pelosi will no longer be in charge but instead a Republican will. The question then becomes which Republican is it going to be?

Prior to Democrats taking control of the House of Representatives, Kevin McCarthy was the House Majority Leader. However, he may not be speaker of the house this go around. As it turns out, the House Minority Whip, Steve Scalise, has also put in his bid for a House Majority Leader and is doing so based on a particular pledge to hold the Biden Administration accountable.

“With this bold, conservative agenda in mind, I am asking for your support to be the next House Majority Leader,” Scalise wrote. “The American people deserve a House of Representatives that can move the agenda that was promised to them on the campaign trail. As your Majority Leader, I will work relentlessly to usher our vision through the House and show the country how conservative ideas can solve the problems that families are facing.”

At the same time, Kevin McCarthy has once again announced his bid for House Speaker as well. But it seems that not all of his Republican colleagues are quite as enthused about him becoming speaker of the house once again. In fact, CNN reported that at least two dozen members of the House Freedom Caucus are willing to vote against Kevin McCarthy if he doesn’t offer some sort of concessions. That does come from CNN though so take it for what it’s worth.

McCarthy vowed that he would “immediately reopen the Capitol and end the Democrat proxy voting and remote work schemes that have inflicted untold damage to this institution,” as well as “go toe-to-toe” with the Biden administration.

“We will begin and end each day with a singular focus: serving the needs of our fellow citizens,” McCarthy continued. “Their voice is now our vote — and we will not be afraid to push the envelope when it comes to delivering an economy that’s strong, a nation that’s safe, a future that’s built on freedom, and a government that’s accountable. I sincerely hope President Biden is willing to embrace those same objectives. If not, he should count on us taking our case directly to the American people in every corner of this great country. Plan on spending a significant amount of time outside the Beltway and on the ground the next two years as we draw a clear contrast between our vision and the Democrats’ while laying the foundation for a Republican to win back the White House in 2024.”

I guess we’re just going to have to wait a little bit longer and see what happens to find out who’s going to be the next Speaker of the House.

    • I would not vote for Kevin McCarthy for speaker of the house because he is a rhino ! I don’t trust him !I would vote for Steve Scalise!

    • Absolutely get rid of both mccarthy and mcconnel, two mics not worth a damn. Not one in the speaker position going back to at least beaner has been worth anything.

      • No Scalise either, clone of mccarthy. If any current dumbo gets in the house or senate, not only will I be an x-repub for 8 years, but will never vote for another. The country won’t be around much longer one way or another.

    • You are so right! I have been saying this a long time but he is not the only Rino that is running for speaker. We need a Conservative in as speaker and just maybe we could get something done.

    • I totally agree! We don’t need another Rhino who is not going to fight for the republicans! Vote Steve Scalise!

  • I am for Scalise. Mc Carthy is not forceful enough. Republicans need to take charge for our values. We must save our country from the Demacrats.

  • I would love to see Scalise take the position. The Left tried to kill him & nearly succeeded. I doubt he will want to work with that pack of vipers on anything.

  • we’ve heard all this before……time for NEW leadership, and from someone that will actually do what they say they’re going to do!!

  • Jim Jordon is the only one who does what he says and is a true Republican. McCarthy is certainly not the one to be Speaker nor is Steve Scalise. You must be a Republican 100% of the time not only when you feel it benefits you.

  • SCALISE ABSOLUTELY! It is a shame that WE THE PEOPLE no longer get to call the shots in Congress. I trust Mr. McCarthy about as much as I trust Mr. McConnell.

  • we dont want that big mouth sell out , he donated to the democrats with the donations he got from the replubicans money , he needs ARRESTED

  • Scalise is the one for Speaker of the house. Jim Jordan would be my ultimate choice, if he was running. Keep Mccarthy as far away as possible, damn RINO!

  • I hope the republicans are smart enough to say they have had enough of McCarthy and he has to go. He try to get trump impeached, has given to candidates the are candidates outside of the ones that trump supported and it is time for new and fresh blood. We also need to replace McConnell he is in bed with the democrats and he did the same thing. Clean leadership and have the party go in a different direction.

  • McCarthy should step aside and let some new blood lead the house republicans. His backstabbing Trump during J6 is inexcusable. He is a liability to the party.

  • The problem for almost all politicians is that they promise a whole lot of things, but all you get out of them is hot air, nothing else. It is time to put politicians on notice that if they do not do as they promised because they voted AGAINST their own promised policies, they are unqualified to rerun in any future election. That, I think, would eliminate a lot of liars in government at any level.

  • WELL I CNA’ UNDERSTAND WHY – BECAUSE THE CORRUPT DEMS HAVE HAD ELECTIONS RIGGED FOR THEM TO WIN FOR A VERY LONG TIME. WAIT TO ALL THIS COMES OUT AND SHOCK THE CRAP OUT OF YOU. AND THERE WILL BE ALOT OF PEOPLE GOING DOWN FOR THEIR CRIMES—– COUNT ON IT.

  • I strongly believe that if the choice were left up to the conservative voters, Jim Jordan would be our next House Speaker. Sadly, it is in the hands of the members of the House. These free-riders don’t really give a damn what the non-political electorate thinks, thus WE always get what THEY want. Years back, we could contact our elected officials, but try to get in touch with them these days. Hah! The only time we can have contact with them is when they want us to give them another two or six years of a ride on their gravy train. And isn’t it about time they raise their pay from $174,000, insider-trading, meals, haircuts and hairdos, and anything else they can get for free? And look what we get from government: The Republican leader of the Senate McConnell is married to the daughter of the Shanghai-born owner of a Chinese shipping line. She was formerly U.S. Secretary of Transportation. The Chair of the Republican National Committee, Ronna Romney McDaniel, is cousin of a leading RINO — the list goes on and on. You wonder why a red-wave failed to materialize? Because the Democrats didn’t want it to!!!

    • Noventa, I agree with your statement 100%.
      I WOULD VOTE FOR JIM JORDAN….he’s a true Conservative, honest, doing everything in his power what he said he will do for JUSTICE, FOR FAMILIES, FOR COUNTRY AND ALL LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS….
      There are very few others that are deserving to serve as a SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, to promote unity, freedom, well being of the U.S.A. and stop the liberal=communist=dems and other like them of lies, theft, corruption, racism, crimes and terrorism, stopping them of selling our country and technology to foreigners who offered them millions in their bank account.
      Ms Steffanic (sorry if I spelled wrong), Ms Greene, Sen Ted Cruz, and several others would be a much better choice for a Speaker of the House.

  • I don’t blame them for looking at others, Kevin turned on President Trump several times and we do NOT need that to happen again. We want a true and total Republican to be in charge.

  • Mc Carthy the Rino worthless prick needs to go!!!
    Wake up you fucking Republicans.
    And next you should reverse the fucking cost of living wage increase you gave yourselves when the rest of the country is dying from fucking Biden’s ignorant policies.
    And last but not least, all rules letting you vote for your own pay increases and granting yourselves free health insurance etc. Should be banned.
    You pricks don’t even show up for work and are paid a ridiculous amount of money. We the people should be able to vote and fire your asses on the spot for not representing you constituents or defending our Constitution.Also , if the President can only serve twice, then we need to set term limits on all politicians and government officers. Regardless of party, you are corrupt and only serve big business interests and not the hard working middle class.
    And last but not least, no one over the age of 50 should be a able to run for any political or government office. You are too fucking old to understand the values and needs of the people you represent and are out of touch with The “Today”
    Joe Biden everyday proves how demented he is. We are (were) respected as the greatest country in the world until a bunch of imbecile fucking corrupt politicians decided to run the show and don’t even Renner their names!!!

  • All shall be REVEALED! The Whole Global Cabal, demoncRATs and RINOS, ALL SATAN’S DEMON SPAWN MINIONS DESERVE DIRT NAPS. NCSWIC, WWG1WGA, P.A.N.I.C. LGB,FJB! President Trump’s still my President. Yahweh save our poor souls Amen.

  • My vote is with Scalise. His motto should be “Shoot me once, shame on you!” & he should take no prisoners.

  • Kim Goguen claims Kevin McCarthy will be the next Potus
    because Biden and Harris will go.
    Then Scalise will be Speaker.

  • I think Steve Scalise would make a great Majority Leader- will not put others down because We the republican party needs to stick together- no name calling

  • Scalise is the way to go. McCarthy has proven by his past actions he is not truthful nor has the guts to stand up to the Democrats. McCarthy flips flops 👎

  • Kevin is a weak, spineless establishment rino, not a conservative. He needs serious consequences for the botched midterm election-fire him.

  • Cmon all, I agree that McCarthy should go (and Mitch in the Senate too), but remember this – ding dong the witch is dead Nutty Nancy will not be Speaker anymore, she will be back to being a peon that leaders can push around again. For that reason she is gone, although she will state a different lying reason to announce her retirement.

  • Trump should be speaker of the House. McCarthy is a slime ball… Not to be trusted. And McConnell in the senate is a joke. Get rid of them both. They’re trying to spin the poor showing of Republicans on Trump, when it was totally their mismanagement of funds that did us in. Wasting money on Murkowski when Masters needed it the most. And who can explain Oz losing? Either there was election fraud. Probably. Or, the people of Pennsylvania are idiots. Probably, too….

  • All McLosers have to go. Worthless corrupt McConnell, spineless McCarthy and ineffective McDaniel. It’s time for entire new leadership.

  • When I came home from US Navy service, in 1975, I went into an empty meeting room, where I hugged the flag, and broke into tears. I saw President Trump do the same. Trump support comes with the Trump personality, which includes some unpleasant aspects. Who has the better political future ” Marco Rubio or Liz Cheney ?

  • Since we are all fighting against the Biden inflation , many people have to go into our 401k’s, SEPS, IRA’s etc. We need to waive the RMD requirement, of the IRS/Government, for 2022. Also, 2023 will even be more challenging to us all and the waiver should also be implemented forward. However, the RHINOS need more money to launder to build their assets.

  • McCarthy can’t be trusted. Do you remember Jan. 6, the coin he handed over to Mike Pence after he through us all under the bus? They colluded and planned the whole thing. We were cheated, our votes were and continue to be stolen, and they placed a brain dead and evil vegetable as President.

  • WE ARE NOT DIVIDED ——– NOT AT ALL WE ARE JUST MAKING A FEW CHANGES TO MAKES THINGS BETTER FOR ALL US – AND KNOW ING WHO WE CAN COUNT ON TO FULL FILL THE MISSION. WHO IS OF STRONG CHARACTER AND GUN WHOO TO GET IT DONE CORRECTLY . YO KNOW WHAT I MEAN. I DON’T THINK WE THE PEOPLE WANT TO KEEP LOOKING OVER OUR SHOULDERS TO SEE IF THEY ARE MOVING ON THE MISSION . BUT BY FAITH KNOW THAT THEY RE DOING IT. AND THAT WE CAN REST EASY . AND KNOWING US OF WHAT WE HAVE BEEN GOING THROUGH – WE WOULD BE CHECKING IN ONCE AND A WHILE TO SEE HOW THINGS ARE GETTING DOWN. AT THIS POINT WE ARE ALL IN THE SAME BOAT. AND WANTS WHAT IS BEST FOR ALL. JUST A STRAIGHT FORWARD PLAN THAT WORKS FOR ALL
