At a certain point after following politics closely, you move away from reacting to events and begin to focus on proactively predicting events. (snip)Let there be absolutely no doubt, removing Johnson right now is giving the speaker gavel to Democrats. This Machiavellian way to remove Donald Trump has always appeared to be the Deep State insurance policy.(snip)If the Democrats take control of the House, disqualifying Donald Trump from federal office will be the purpose of their first legislative act. They already hold the Senate. They will do this. Thomas Massie knows this. So, ask yourself, who exactly is controlling the action of Thomas Massie;


Any who are discontented with Johnson should read this before cheeering for MTG and Massie. This is about Trump, not Johnson.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY)......... "Massie voted "present" on the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement, the only member of the House to do so and the only Republican not to vote against it. Massie was the only member of the House to vote against extending sanctions on Iran in 2016." "In May 2022, he said no to a House resolution broadly condemning antisemitism. The vote was 420-to-1 — he stood alone in opposition." A member of the RINO Hall of Fame.

I am for replacing Johnson. He is a traitor that broke a tie vote on passage of FISA by voting with the Democrats. Johnson has betrayed Republicans time after time. He is a nonentity to begin with, and Jordan or Biggs should be speaker.

Okay, folks... here's the deal. Do what you have to do between now and election day and don't tie Pres Trump's hands with legislation he has to put up with for a year or two after inauguration. Build the GOP majority, insure that the electoral vote is counted honestly. That's your job, RINO, Conservative Republican, or MAGA Congresscritter. It may not be palatable to any of you, but a "Speaker Jeffries" is the alternative.

I almost always agree with Sundance but fail to see how the country benefits from a Speaker who is in lock step with Biden and Schumer in marching the country over a Marxist cliff. Without even a whimper of protest - in fact, he seems quite happy with himself. Am I wrong?

Don't know about the slander Sundance is tossing around about Greene Hannity etal, not sure why he thought it needed aired even if true other than to smear. That said I too was against the sqalid little piece of legislation Johnson got passed on FISA and his MORE dumping of tax dollars into Ukraine is nuts. Our nations intel cabals are throughly corrupt and if Speaker Johnson hasn't been asleep these last many years the blood is all over the place. He shoiuld have known better. That said we lost ...this time. Regroup. Seems like Johnson can and will be ready for the fight if we hand him a solid House, Senate and a warrior President Trump. Now get back to work and help save Amemrica.

Maybe the folks who voted Massie into office (4th District of KY), should begin calling Little Tommy and giving him an earful. They need to let him know he will NOT have their support if he continues to support re-calling Johnson. I think Johnson might not be the best choice, but this is not the right time for Stupid Republicans to hand the House over to the Democrats. Jeesh! Does it get more and more Stupid as the days go on?? Hard to believe!

WASHINGTON—After a string of retirements and an expulsion, House Republicans will soon hold the slimmest majority in modern history. House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) is leading a Republican conference that can spare only one defection in a party that has already dethroned its own speaker over internal divisions. Such a thin advantage gives Republicans little in the way of leverage in a government that’s otherwise completely controlled by Democrats—particularly as infighting and the threat of a new motion to vacate against Mr. Johnson hangs over all that he does.

Lawmakers and privacy experts on both sides of the political spectrum are sounding the alarm on a provision in a spy powers reform bill that one senator described as one of the “most terrifying expansions of government surveillance” in history. Eighty-six House Republicans last Friday voted for the Reforming Intelligence and Securing America Act (RISAA), a bill that would reauthorize Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Section 702 is a government surveillance authority that is meant to target foreign adversaries, but often surveils Americans’ communications without a warrant.

Before getting into bigger picture analysis and intellectual discussion about FISA and the 702 reauthorizations, let me just reveal some inside DC crap that drives me nuts and at the same time will help y’all understand the nonsense. First, the Intelligence Community (IC) tells congress, particularly the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, that all hell will break loose if they don’t reauthorize full electronic surveillance of Americans. Congress is petrified of the IC. Speaker Johnson and all of the key participants are totally siloed from understanding that 702 has nothing to do with incidental collection of American data whilst the honorable IC were doing foreign intercepts.

By this point, it’s clear to everyone that Bill Barr was a dirty pawn of the Deep State, installed to undermine President Trump from the inside. Yet, we’ve now got a rare look at just how evil he truly was. Barr wasn’t merely “concerned” about the 2020 election; he was outright “irate.” Not over the injustice of it all, mind you, but because he was incensed by any investigations into the sham. If this doesn’t scream his direct involvement in the coup against Trump, what does?

Behind EV Push, a Wealth Transfer From

President Joe Biden’s new EV mandates will likely prove to be a sizable wealth transfer from rural red regions of America to urban blue sections, and to wealthy Democrats who reside in them, according to reports. On March 20, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized its tailpipe emissions rules for the auto industry starting in 2027. These rules are the strictest in history and will effectively force carmakers to have one-third of new car sales be plug-in electric vehicles (EVs) by 2027 and more than two-thirds by 2032. This represents a dramatic increase from current EV sales, which were about 8 percent of the new car market in 2023.

The committee voted nine to three, with all four Democrats on the committee voting with five Republicans to move a rule to the House floor, which, if passed with Democrat support as expected, would allow votes on Johnson’s foreign aid package, including a bill that includes tens of billions to fund Ukraine.

As of now, some 25 states have laws or regulations aimed at keeping boys and men out of female-only spaces, on and off the field.
