There is one particular person in America who actually, actually desires to be speaker of the United States House of Representatives and that’s California Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy. And Rep. McCarthy will say and do something to get this job.

You might recollect it was McCarthy who unintentionally uncovered the reality behind the Benghazi hearings that lasted for years and price taxpayers $7 million when he stated, “Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, proper? But we put collectively a Benghazi particular committee, a choose committee, what are her numbers at the moment? Her numbers are dropping.” After holding Hillary Clinton hostage for 11 hours in a witness chair, this committee discovered just one new piece of data: She had used a personal e-mail server, as had her predecessor.

And that jar of spilled beans led to the struggle chant of “Hillary’s Emails,” which continues to be a speaking level at the moment for some. Even the committee’s chair stated McCarthy had “screwed up.” Why? Because, for as soon as in his life, Kevin McCarthy informed the reality. In equity, McCarthy has informed the reality twice.

The day after Trump supporters instigated an riot, McCarthy took to the ground of the House to sentence then-President Trump. “The president bears accountability for the assault on Congress by mob rioters. He ought to have instantly denounced the mob when he noticed what was unfolding. These info require rapid motion by President Trump.”

It was solely a few weeks later when McCarthy slithered right down to Mar-a-Lago to beg, grovel and express regret from the person he, McCarthy, had legitimately known as out. After his confession session, McCarthy had this to say, “I don’t consider he provoked it in the event you take heed to what he stated on the rally.”

Actually, in the event you listened to what Trump stated, McCarthy was proper the primary time. His complete reversal uncovered him because the hypocrite he’s. His incapacity to face as much as the previous president who clearly did incite the riots, has induced his tumor of hypocrisy to metastasize.

His flip-flopping has now demanded he help “The Big Lie” that claims his grasp really received the 2020 presidential election and that it was stolen. Only a small handful of Republicans have pushed again towards this Big Lie. One of them is Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyoming, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney. Cheney is a real conservative Republican having voted in lockstep with Trump greater than 90% of the time. She parted firm over the Big Lie. She has spoken the reality, which is that the 2020 US elections had been essentially the most safe elections in our historical past.

However, McCarthy has by no means been one to let the reality get in his method. In his look on Fox & Friends, he stated, “heard from different members involved about (Cheney’s) capacity to hold out the job as convention chair, to hold out the message.” When he thought the microphone was off, he stated, “I’ve had it along with her. You know, I’ve misplaced confidence.” On Wednesday of this week, the Republicans within the House are anticipated to throw Liz Cheney over the bridge, as a result of she is not going to associate with the Big Lie. Meanwhile, the Republicans are keen to show a blind eye to Rep. Matt Gaetz, the smarmy character from Florida who thought it was acceptable to indicate inappropriate photos to his colleagues whereas on the House ground.

Yes, it’s true that every one politicians sometimes will say one thing that’s not 100% correct. Sometimes they accomplish that mistakenly. Other instances they accomplish that deliberately. Think again to what the previous president needed to say about COVID-19 to Bob Woodward versus what he needed to say to Americans.

Rep. Kevin McCarthy made a aware choice to promote his soul in trade for energy. Oh, man, does he ever need the ability of that gavel. He doesn’t need that gavel to do good for Americans. He desires that gavel only for the sake of the ability it might probably wield. He desires to have the ability to perpetuate the Big Lie, as a result of telling the reality has merely not been his forte.

Liz Cheney may be making McCarthy dizzy with rage, however the issue is just not Liz Cheney. If Kevin McCarthy desires to get mad at somebody, he want solely go look right into a mirror and get mad on the hypocrite he sees staring again at him. In doing so, he may come to the identical conclusion nearly all of Americans have, which is a person with no soul, no ethical compass, the lack to talk fact to energy, is the final man on this planet who deserves to be able of energy.

If you wish to know what’s fallacious with America at the moment, you want solely to have a look at Rep. Kevin McCarthy.
