Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy is demonstrating what a total disaster he is, allowing right wing extremists to have authority, and now working to deny Democrats of their appointments on the House Intelligence Committee, specifically Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell both from California, who have served on that committee honorably!
McCarthy is also taking a stand against Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, planning to deny her continued membership on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, but giving the phony liar, George Santos, positions on two committees!
This is outrageous, and the few moderate Republicans, such as Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Nancy Mace of South Carolina, and Don Bacon of Nebraska, along with a few others, can prevent this outrageous violation of McCarthy to be prevented by voting with Democrats to overrrule the Speaker!
Speaker of the House of Representatives Kevin McCarthy may have made deals with the most extreme right wing Republicans (the Freedom Caucus) to win the Speakership on the 15th ballot, but he will now face opposition from mainstream conservative Republicans who do not like the deals struck on the budget.
In particular, the issues of defense spending and aid to Ukraine is bound to cause a split and create chaos.
Already, it seems quite likely that at least the following six conservative Republicans are unwilling to promote the defense cuts that the more right wing Freedom Caucus is pushing for:
Tony Gonzales of Texas
Dan Crenshaw of Texas
Michael McCaul of Texas
Don Bacon of Nebraska
Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania
Nancy Mace of South Carolina
If those six House Republicans resist on the issue of defense, there will be no cuts, and Democrats would certainly join them on continued aid to Ukraine, and chaos will reign in the House majority!
