    Tucker Carlson lashed out at House Minority Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Tuesday night, warning Republicans that a change in leadership is necessary. The Fox News host pointed to an excerpt in a forthcoming book, This Will Not Pass, by New York Times reporters Alexander Burns and Jonathan Martin. Four days after the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot, they quote McCarthy as musing aloud whether Twitter would ban incendiary accounts that had tweeted favorably about the incident. He was participating in a meeting of the House GOP leadership at the time. The platform had already banned Donald Trump’s account permanently at that point after he riled up supporters on the morning of Jan. 6. “We can’t put up with that,” McCarthy said on Jan. 10, 2021. “Can’t they take their Twitter accounts away, too?” Carlson addressed those comments. “Congressman Kevin McCarthy of California told his close friend Liz Cheney that he hoped the social media companies would censor more conservative Republicans in Congress,” he stated. “Donald Trump, the sitting president, had already been silenced by those companies. But McCarthy wanted the...
    The co-hosts of The View discussed Thursday Rep. Madison Cawthorn’s (R-NC) recent remarks that he was invited to a Washington “orgy” and that he has seen drug use among D.C. elites. The conversation started off with a series of clips of Cawthorn’s remarks and a discussion of House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) telling Cawthorn that he has “lost trust” in him. Conservative guest co-host Tara Setmayer ripped into Cawthorn over his many scandals during his short time in office. “Madison Cawthorn is reckless. He’s an embarrassment, and his own delegation is speaking out against him which is rare,” she began. “He has a primary coming up on May 17th. There are eight people running against him. It’s a Republican district, so Democrats, sorry, you don’t have a chance there. But, he has some trouble. This needs to happen because you can’t have somebody running around — this is not his only transgression. He has numerous transgressions besides just being a moron,” Setmayer continued. “He’s a useful idiot. There’s video of him beating up a tree. His idea of masculinity...
    Former CNN and Fox Business host Lou Dobbs joined Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) on his Firebrand podcast and discussed the future of Republican congressional politics. During the episode, titled “The Great Lou Dobbs,” Gaetz asks the staunchly pro-Trump television personality about a variety of topics from Ukraine-Russia tensions to the latest news reports on John Durham’s investigation. In one particularly notable part of the 25-minute conversation, Dobbs declares Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), the current leader of the House Republicans, should not become speaker of the House should the GOP regain the majority in the 2022 midterms. Dobbs says, “It’s outrageous, he is too much of a, I’ll be kind, if not RINO, a middle-of-the-roader. I personally believe him to be outright a RINO.” “The party needs strength, it needs vision, it needs energy, vibrancy, and new blood in leadership,” Dobbs continued. “Could you be excited about a Speaker Jim Jordan,” Gaetz then asked. “You bet I could be excited about Jim Jordan, as you well know. I think highly of him, I think highly of you. I think you...
                        Wisconsin Speaker of the House Robin Vos said on Tuesday documents pertaining to the ongoing election investigation will not be released yet. An open records lawsuit was filed by American Oversight, a liberal group that disagrees with the investigation. Vos said in an interview with Wisconsin Public Radio that handing over the documents for public perusal right now would be like police sharing details of a murder investigation. Vos said, “They do not put out for public display, for everyone to read, who they’re talking to and who they’re investigating, giving an advantage to people who actually committed the crime to avoid prosecution.” Vos continued, “That’s exactly what would happen if we decided to put all the documents out and that’s why liberals are asking for them. They want to try to torpedo our investigation.” The head investigator of the election in Wisconsin, former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman released a statement following the lawsuit saying, “It is important to keep in mind that this Office is...
                        Michigan House Speaker Jason Wentworth (R-Clare) urged Governor Gretchen Whitmer to fire Acting Unemployment Insurance Agency (UIA) Director Liza Olson. In the statement, Wentworth highlighted several errors and examples of poor management throughout the state agency. “The simple truth is UIA isn’t getting the job done for Michigan families,” said Wentworth. “The people of this state need UIA’s help more than ever right now, and instead of rising to the challenge, they are letting us down over and over again. Wentworth added, “We have all waited long enough and given them more than enough chances, but it just isn’t getting any better. It is time for Gov. Whitmer to make a change and finally give people struggling with unemployment a fighting chance.” Olson’s term as the acting director has been filled with various problems for the agency. During the course of the coronavirus pandemic, the agency gave out benefits to ineligible recipients for months. After awarding the money, UIA sent out almost 700,000 letters to residents informing them...
    A spokesman for former President Donald Trump said he has “zero desire” to be Speaker of the House, Punchbowl News reported. “Trump has zero desire to be speaker,” spokesman Jason Miller told Punchbowl News via text message Tuesday. Miller’s response follows House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s misinterpreted claims that Trump wants to serve as Speaker of the House on Fox News Friday. However, McCarthy’s office clarified that Trump said he wants the minority leader to serve as Speaker.

But it’s not something that I would’ve considered but it is certainly-there’s a lot of talk about it,” Trump said. “I have a good relationship with Kevin [McCarthy] and hopefully we will do...
    Congressman Justin Amash took to Twitter Thursday afternoon and suggested that Democratic lawmakers in the House of Representatives consider replacing Nancy Pelosi as the lower chamber’s speaker. “House Democrats should consider nominating someone other than Nancy Pelosi as speaker of the House, especially if Biden wins the presidency,” he wrote. “There are talented, young members who’d do a much better job for our institution and the American people in the challenging times ahead.” “Oh, and Senate Republicans should dump Mitch McConnell. He’s magnificently horrible at running an institution where fair process and compromise are necessary and paramount,” he added. Amash has been critical of congressional leadership before and taken particular aim at Pelosi and her predecessors. In an interview with Reason, he claimed that John Boehner was the first person in the role that began to stifle the legislative process. After Donald Trump was elected, Amash noted that both Paul Ryan and Pelosi had complete control over the legislative process, and there has not been a single amendment that was allowed to be discussed on the floor without the approval...
    Isn’t it past time for Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to leave her office as Speaker of the House? I call upon our leaders in Congress to put forward the Motion to Vacate the Chair that has been prepared and merely needs to be brought to the floor. Pelosi recently referred to members of Congress who support President Donald Trump as “domestic criminals.” VideoOf course, that type of hyperbole has become commonplace among the left and is ever present under Speaker Pelosi’s leadership. TRUMP JABS AT PELOSI AGAIN OVER SALON ‘SETUP’ -- TAKES SHOT AT BIDEN TOO The left hates President Trump and the Americans who voted for him. In and of itself, it is a most despicable statement designed to divide the nation, but it shows a disregard for the institution itself. VideoNor can we forget that she allowed an impeachment proceeding to go forward that was based solely on animus toward the president, and not on any allegation of the commission of a “high crime or misdemeanor.” The peg on which the left had hung their hat was “Russian...
            by Beth Lear  Without Ohio House Democrats, pressured by labor unions and encouraged by “dark money,” Larry Householder would not be Speaker. The media reported this from the beginning. “Labor unions urge Ohio House Democrats to back Republican Larry Householder for speaker,” headlined the Cleveland Plain Dealer on December 12, 2018. That same evening The Columbus Dispatch declared, “Unions telling House Democrats to back Householder for speaker.” Following the announcement last week of Householder’s arrest, the issue of union influence came up again. NPR’s Jo Ingles tweeted: Speaker Larry Householder wouldnt be speaker right now if he didnt have the backing of some key labor unions and some Democrats. They played a role in his election to the Ohio Houses top post. https://t.co/baEZvKh0GC — Jo Ingles (@joingles) July 23, 2020 As planned, the Democrats swung the vote for speaker to Householder at the beginning of session in January 2019. Then-Speaker Ryan Smith received the majority of Republican votes, but twenty-six union-backed Democrats joined twenty-six Republicans to hand Householder the gavel. The situation was far...
    U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) addresses her weekly news conference with Capitol Hill reporters at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, U.S., June 18, 2020. REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Portraits of four former House of Representatives speakers who served the Confederacy will be removed from the U.S. Capitol, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday. The portraits will be removed on Friday, the Juneteenth holiday marking the end of U.S. slavery, she said. The move comes after nationwide protests against police brutality after the killing of a black man in police custody in Minneapolis.
