As stated in “Jesus Christ Superstar,” what’s the buzz? Tell me what’s a happening. So what is happening? Glad you ask. Lets start with the vote in the house. We all know it’s been postponed, but it seems that there’s a great deal of moment in who is voting for whom. At the moment it looks like the House Freedom Caucus will vote for Representative Daniel Webster (R-FL) for Speaker when the Republican conference chooses its candidate on Thursday.
According to Rep. Fleming, the decision to vote together applies only for the conference vote on Thursday and is not binding for votes that follow. The decision damages the prospects for Kevin McCarthy, endorsed by Boehner in his battle against Chaffetz. It requires a majority of the House, or 218 votes, to win the gavel. There are currently 247 Reps. in the house. The FC consists of roughly 40 of the most conservative member, and Rep. Jim Jordan the group’s leader said Tuesday, “We have every intention of voting together tomorrow and on the house floor.” Rep. Tim Huelskamp also said he’d be supporting Webster: “I don’t think Kevin convinced anybody that he’d be much different than Boehner…Right now it’s just ‘Trust me.'”The leadership elections will be held on Oct. 29.
Then we have that stalwart Conservative Carly Fiorina. She told a group of conservative journalists that she would have voted to confirm Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court. According to her statement, this daughter of the late Deputy U.S. Attorney General and U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Joseph Sneed, that “she does not believe in litmus test for judicial nominees, and that the chief criterion for service is “respecting the Constitution.”
A reminder that the only Senators that voted for her were moderates. Alexander, Bond, Collins, Graham, Lugar, Martinez, Snowe and Voinovich. Carly went on to say that she didn’t study Sotomayor all that much as she was battling cancer, but would have voted for her anyway. This was taken from an article at the end of 09, a time when she was pushing her Conservative creds.
Bobby Jindal has unveiled his new tax plan and I suggest you go to his web site and study it. It’s really very interesting and has some real good things listed that would please Conservatives.
We have Anthea Butler, a black religious studies professor, calling Ben Carson a ‘coon.’ If I called him that would I get away with it or would the wreath of God fall down upon my head. If you see a picture of this woman it explains everything. Sadly she’s teaching our kids.
The we come to John Kasich. Bless his heart, he’s trying so hard to be relevant. I mean the guy is threatening to buy Bibles so we sinners will be able to read what God says about expanding Obamacare, and bankrupting his state. I think that passage is found in the book of Kasich Chpt. 3 verse 9-12. At least I think that’s were I saw it.
And if that wasn’t enough, he’s pushing for stricter “green Energy” mandates. The state legislature is trying to work their way around Kasich’s stead fast “absolutely unacceptable” stance on the subject. Of course this is just one of a number of troubling things going on in Ohio concerning this issue. Supposedly Kasich, as all politicians do, forms a committee to look into whether move green energy was advisable. They said no. Kasich said forget the committee. I know best and referred them to the book of Kasich Chpt. 16 verses 1-10.
UPDATE–as you know by now McCarthy’s out and there’s talk of having Romney take the chair. Good grief have we sank that low? Romney is the last thing we need with that sort of power. Especially seeing how he told Breitbart that the solution to amnesty is to have Congress swallow hard and pass amnesty. It would cut Obama off at the pass. No, it would have him dancing on the ceiling. He would take that as a giant win and another that we handed him. Oh, and by the way, he’s flipped again on Climate Change. Now he’s all in with the global warming crowd. Perhaps he never was really a disbeliever.
There’s also rumor that Romney could persuade Paul Ryan to take the job. Heaven help us. Ryan is a big amnesty fan, helped Boehner in his fight against Conservatives, and was willing to raise the debt ceiling and helped pass the last budget that was rushed through Congress.
Here is a list of those with a 95 to 100% Conservative voting record. Any of these would be wonderful. –Dave Brat-100%, Gary Palmer-100%, Jim Brindenstine-96%, Louie Gohmert-96%, Mark Meadows-96% Jeff Duncan 95%.
Oh by the way, Boehner said if he has to he’ll remain speaker until the new session starts. There goes the budget and amnesty and God only knows what else.
