Habemus Speaker Of The House Of Representatives

When a new Pope is elected they burn straw in a furnace to send up white smoke to tell the people that a new Pope has been selected.  At that point, the people waiting outside do not know who the Pope will be until someone appears at the balcony up above to proclaim, Habemus Papam, which is Latin means, We Have A Pope".  It is only then that the new Pope appears at the balcony window and the name he has chosen is announced.  And, so it is with electing a Republican Speaker of the House.  We had the drama, but not the white smoke.  

After 15 votes and a lot of horse trading with the small minority opposing Republican Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House, McCarthy was finally elected Speaker with final help from President Trump.  To hear Socialist Fascists (AKA Democrats) and Fake New tell it, the fact that it took several days and 15 votes to get it done indicated that Republicans simply can't govern.  That remains to be seen.  The reality is that the rule changes that the minority of Republicans extracted from McCarthy will be good for the country.  

And, we saw that the new leadership of the Socialist Fascist (AKA Democrat) party is the obligatory middle aged Black Man, Hispanic Man and White woman.  I don't know if any of them are Gay, or transgender; but usually the Socialists like to cover all the bases.  What was really funny is that the Socialist Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, who was just supposed to introduce the new Speaker as part of the ceremony gave a long winded partisan speech complete with hand jabbing motions that just demonstrated the divide in our country and the battles that lie ahead.  

In any case, given the slight delay, Republicans should be prepared to hit the ground running with various investigations and legislation that is ready to go.  So, we will see investigations of the Biden Crime Family, DOJ and FBI, Big Tech, the border mess, the January 6th riot, election integrity, and the origins of Covid.  Now that Republicans have subpoena power, though no doubt the culprits involved in all of these investigations will drag their feet to fight getting at the truth, eventually the truth will come out on all of these issues.  There should be prosecutions; but that will happen as long as Socialist Party Hack Merrick Garland is in charge of the DOJ.  

Next, we better see legislation to defund the hiring of 87,000 additional IRS agents and instead put that money into border security; more border patrol and ICE agents and finishing the wall etc.   Given the crisis at the border, Republicans will dare the Socialist Fascists (AKA Democrats) to vote against this law.  Our course, Biden will veto the law if enacted; but it will set the stage for the election battle in 2024.  We should see a Parent's Bill of Rights to stop the FBI persecution of parents protesting woke ideology at school board meetings.  And, the House should pass universal School Choice to allow parents to get their kids out of failing public schools.  The money needs to follow the kid.  Again, the Socialists will oppose all these laws.   

There must be a national election integrity law requiring voter ID, absentee ballots for only those who request them and limits on ballot harvesting.  The Socialist Fascists (AKA Democrats) will oppose it all and Biden would veto common sense election laws; but again this is about the election in 2024.  

So Kevin McCarthy who waited 14 years to become Speaker of the House is now Speaker.  He will have to prove that he can manage Republicans to actually govern.  McCarthy showed his metal to get the Speaker's gavel.  Now, McCarthy will have to show that he is tough enough to do the job.  If they do a good job, they will be rewarded in 2024 with more seats including taking over the Senate and the Presidency.  If Republican in Congress fail, they will lose control of the House once more.  The base of the Republican Party wants actions not more words and promises.
