With more revelations about Republicah House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and his phone calls after the January 6, 2021 US Capitol Insurrection being exposed, it seems ever more likely that IF the Republicans win control of the House of Representatives in the Midterm Congressional Elections of 2022, there will be open “civil war” over him becoming Speaker of the House!
It seems clear that the most right wing and seditionist oriented Republicans in the House Caucus will refuse to back Kevin McCarthy to be Speaker, so only if the Republicans gain a massive margin in the House races this fall, will McCarthy manage to be elected Speaker.
The thought of Kevin McCarthy being Speaker is a nightmare, as he has no principles, ethics, or morals, and is a massive liar who bends to the will of Donald Trump.
But the alternative choice could be an even more extremist member, such as Jim Jordan of Ohio, and that could lead to a major constitutional crisis, as such a Speaker would certainly wreak havoc on the House, and declare war on Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, the Democrats, and lead to likely revenge investigations of the member of the January 6 House Committee.
Somehow, the effort to keep a Democratic majority, even if it goes against history in midterm elections, is essential for the survival of the reputation of Congress and the stability of American democracy into the future!
