By Mike Engleman on Jan 13, 2023. In the recent House Speakership battle, which many people on the Right were losing their ever loving minds about, really was an exercise of duly elected Representatives in a Constitutional Republic. It only lasted just a mere four days in the House of Representatives, and neocon RINO’s revealed themselves. So what should we expect from House ‘investigations’ and committee assignments? After all, the battle lines were drawn and it was quite contentious in the House as 20 House Republicans held their ground, while many disconnected from reality people on the Right thought it was the end of the Republic because these 20 members were challenging Kevin McCarthy for House Speaker until their demands were met. This is so ridiculous it does not merit discussion, just the mention. This attitude or mindset proves why we lose. Thank goodness these brave warriors stood their ground!
For 2 years America watched Nancy Pelosi and her band of corrupt as hell ‘Selected’ J6 Committee, which was unconstitutional anyway, just make it up on the fly for the entire time during those sham hearings. Democrats do this because they own the media, believe Republicans will never go scorched earth on them, but GOP voters demanded payback! Republicans retake the House, Kevin McCarthy was on record stating he would not support any retribution investigations. Enter the 20+ House members withholding support for McCarthy until he committed otherwise. Thus, the 4 days was the investment to get those concessions. So, what are those concessions?
I will focus on 7 that were non-negotiable for the Gang Of 20. First, it will only take a single congressperson, acting in what is known as a ‘Jeffersonian Motion’ to move to remove the Speaker if he or she goes back on their word or policy agenda. That itself is huge! It is accountability. Second, a “Church” style committee will be convened to look into the weaponization of the FBI, and other governmental agencies against the American people, and into the events surrounding January 6th including the previous J6 Committee. Term limits will also be up for a vote.
Bills presented to Congress will be single subject not omnibus with all the attendant earmarks, and there will be a 72-hour minimum period to read these bills! A win for We The People! Fifth, the Texas Border Plan will be put before Congress. It aims to ‘Complete Physical Border Infrastructure’-fix border enforcement policies, enforce our laws, target cartels, and criminal organizations. If this is House enforcement only, border security has a chance. If it requires Senate approval, it’s DOA. At least it gets the border dialogue going.
The final 2 points are Covid mandates will be ended as will all funding for them, including so-called “emergency funding.” Lastly, budget bills would stop the endless increases in the debt ceiling and hold the worthless Senate accountable for the same.
These conditions are a great start! I applaud the 20 holdouts for standing strong and getting Kevin McCarthy to agree to these concessions. It proves that at least 20 Republican House members were listening to their constituents and fighting for them! Many of the 20 were freshman Congressional Representatives newly elected! Let’s see how this all formally takes shape and who leads these committees and who’s on them. One talking point of the Gang Of 20, was getting McCarthy to agree to have Democrats Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, Ilhan Omar, and Maxine Waters removed from their committee assignments! This absolutely needs to happen! Remove them ASAP! I am just not sure where this negotiating point concluded. But these traitors not only need removed but expelled from the House!
I believe of all the concessions most important to conservatives Trump supporters, and many Americans, are border security, allowing bills a minimum 72 hour reading period, as if this should have to be negotiated in the first place? That is unbelievable by itself. Most importantly though, is a real investigation into the events surrounding the January 6th insurrection hoax. The truth is going to come out, it must, it’s a requirement! Investigate the previous sham committee, release the 14,000 hours of video surveillance footage from inside and outside the building. Make public the communications between Nancy Pelosi and the FBI, Ray Epps, Capitol Hill Police, and DC Mayor Muriel Bowser. Put them and FBI Director Christopher Wray under oath, then we will learn the truth, and how for 2 years one of the biggest lies ever perpetuated by this government on its people with their willing accomplices in the mainstream media who helped perpetuate those lies, being directly involved, just like they were with the stolen 2020 election.
So, in conclusion, our expectations from the House are exceptionally high. With these concessions/conditions being agreed upon, Republicans have an opportunity and a responsibility to follow through. I believe they will. A lot of capital was spent over the 4-5 days to gain these wins, and there will be some teeth behind the efforts to hold House Speaker Kevin McCarthy accountable if any of these positions fail. Fingers crossed!
