GOP establishment leader Kevin McCarthy is refusing to commit to getting rid of Nancy Pelosi’s left-wing rules should he win the gavel on January 3rd and become America’s next Speaker of the House. Under the Pelosi-McCarthy system, the Speaker of the House is all-powerful, and leadership roles within Congress are reserved for the establishment’s chosen ones. Freedom Caucus Reps. who’ve sworn off voting for McCarthy are blasting his embrace of Pelosi’s rules, which uprooted more than 200 years of American legislative tradition and perverted the Congressional process established by America’s founders.
NATIONAL FILE has reached out to Rep. Kevin McCarthy on multiple occasions, both by phone and in writing, asking the GOP leader and Speaker of the House candidate whether or not he will commit to ending Pelosi’s House rules and returning to regular order.
Each time, McCarthy has refused to commit.
As for whether or not he would bring back the motion to vacate the chair, a concept as old as Congress itself, which empowers the people’s representatives to challenge the Speaker’s leadership and put the position up for a vote, McCarthy has also refused to commit.
Publicly, GOP Reps. opposed to McCarthy have speculated that his refusal to bring back the motion to vacate the chair is due to the fate that met ex-Speaker John Boehner, who was ousted in 2015 by members of his own party, after years of collaborating with left-wing Democrats to bring about the managed decline of the United States.
Just a week ago, McCarthy was lambasting GOP Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and others for their support of nearly $2 trillion worth of omnibus spending legislation, crafted by lame-duck Democrats and designed to take the power of the purse strings away from the incoming, GOP majority Congress, elected by the American People.
Among the uni-party ticket items included in the massive spending bill is yet another “blank check” for Ukraine.
Interestingly enough, though he was vocally “opposed” to the spending legislation a week ago, McCarthy’s been quiet on the omnibus front since he received the endorsement of Senator Mitch McConnell, who says he’s “absolutely..pulling for Kevin,” and “hopes he makes it” to the gavel this time.
Now, McCarthy’s reportedly in support of passing the Democrat spending bill, or at least open to it if it means currying support within the establishment, though that’s another topic he’s refused to answer for when contacted by NATIONAL FILE.
Since the conclusion of the 2022 midterms, McCarthy has been under massive fire from those within his caucus, who say he failed to deliver on the “red wave” he spent years promising and raising money off of.
As reported by NATIONAL FILE, during the 2022 midterms and the nominating contests that preceded them, Kevin McCarthy used corrupt FTX money to derail America First candidates and protect his GOP establishment’s influence over the United States Congress.
In doing so, McCarthy ensured the GOP had a razor-thin majority, something that may now come back to end his leadership career, as at least 20 GOP Reps. will purportedly be firm “no” votes against his campaign for Speaker when ballots are cast on January 3rd.
Despite the fact that conservative Republicans defeated Democrats by millions of votes on a national scale, at a district level, McCarthy picked winners and losers during the GOP primary process, backing establishment candidates who’d vowed to support his speakership ambitions.
Now, thanks to the aforementioned razor-thin majority and a group of patriot legislators who say they won’t vote for McCarthy as Speaker under any circumstances, it appears that the GOP establishment leader will not get the gavel without significant Democrat support.
