    There’s a lot of doubt that Kevin McCarthy will be able to get enough votes to become Speaker. It certainly won’t happen on the first ballot. Already Boboert and MTG are publicly at odds over it.

    Maybe this is worth it’s own thread to watch. One person mentioned is Scalise.

     
    So it’s your contention that this stalemate is what Russia wanted?
    Yeah, his reasoning makes absolutely no sense. Their advances early in the invasion was clearly with the objective of isolating and hitting the city from the nw and ne in a pincer move. The Russians failed to take the city.

    To say otherwise is literally rewriting history.
     
    For what it’s worth
    ==============

    Kevin McCarthy has claimed that Florida Republican Representative Matt Gaetz ousted him as speaker because he refused to “do something illegal” to stop an ethics probe into the congressman………

    Mr McCarthy was ousted after just nine months as speaker in October after Mr Gatez filed a motion to vacate after Mr McCarthy also compromised with Democrats on government funding.

    “The one advice I would give to the conference and to the speaker is do not be fearful of a motion to vacate,” he said on CBS. “I do not think they could do it again. That was surely based on Matt Gaetz trying to stop an ethics complaint.


    “It was purely Matt coming to me trying ... [to get] me to do something illegal to stop the Ethics Committee from moving forward in an investigation that was started long before I became speaker,” Mr McCarthy said…………

    Hmmm, isn’t solicitation of an illegal act itself illegal? Most times? Why didn’t McCarthy report it or at least censure Matt? McCarthy isn’t trustworthy. He lies a lot.
     
    This guy….😡


    Johnson admits he and his son use a peer pressure app to keep from watching porn.

    One of Putin's favorite ways to compromise people is with sexually embarrassing information.

    Johnson will not allow anymore aid go to Ukraine and is being blatantly disingenuous as to why he won't.

    I wonder if there could be a connection?
     
    This is even more stupid.


    We also have a law that says people can't be in the country illegally and that's obviously ignored.

    I know they were talking about federal elections, but what about cities that allow illegals to vote in local elections?

    What about the 13 extra house seats that Democrats have due to illegals?

    Everything you post is a falsehood. The people that are allowed to vote in very limited local election are not here illegally. They may be non-citizens, but they are allowed to be here legally. Also, I guess screw states rights or local control, right?

    What about the 13 extra house seats that Democrats have due to illegals?

    No such thing. What about the 50 extra house seats that Republicans have because of extreme racial and partisan gerrymandering? What about the documented cases of almost exclusively Republicans brazenly voting illegally and tampering with election with fake robocalls?

    We also have a law that allows some to declare asylum and they all have to be vetted and determine which are valid and which aren't. It's not as simple as loading them all on a bus and shipping them out. There are probably too many coming in, but that doesn't mean we quit either.

    What cities are you talking about and what evidence do you have that they're allowing illegals to vote? This just feels like a made up story.

    Source?

    Ballotpedia, a digital encyclopedia of American politics and elections, lists 17 municipalities that currently have laws allowing at least some noncitizens to vote in local elections. Noncitizens include people with legal authorization to live or work in the U.S., as well as people who are undocumented.

    VERIFY confirmed that the language of 13 of these municipalities’ laws includes undocumented immigrants among the noncitizens allowed to vote. The other four allow some noncitizens to vote, but not undocumented immigrants.

    These municipalities include San Francisco and Oakland in California, Washington, D.C., and 10 communities in Maryland. All 10 of the Maryland communities are within the two counties that directly border Washington, D.C.

    Some of these municipalities, such as San Francisco and Oakland, only allow their undocumented residents and other noncitizens to vote in local school board elections, and only if they are parents of children attending the local school district. Others, such as Washington, D.C., allow noncitizens to vote for offices such as mayor and council member, as well as on referendums.

    Oakland’s law directly franchises undocumented immigrants by defining noncitizens as “documented immigrants, lawful permanent residents, residents on work visas, and undocumented immigrants.”

    Many of the other laws don’t directly name undocumented immigrants, but extend the right to vote broadly enough to include them. For example, Chevy Chase Section 3, Maryland, defines “qualified voter” as “any person who is a resident of Chevy Chase Section 3, without regard to citizenship, and is at least eighteen (18) years of age.”

    While the city doesn’t allow them to vote in elections for citywide offices, Chicago allows undocumented immigrants to vote in what it calls local school councils, which serve as the governing bodies for individual schools. Students can also vote in these elections, of which there are 477 in the city.

    No such thing. What about the 50 extra house seats that Republicans have because of extreme racial and partisan gerrymandering? What about the documented cases of almost exclusively Republicans brazenly voting illegally and tampering with election with fake robocalls?
    I confused this criteria with the one below

    Looking at non-citizens and their U.S.-born minor children redistributes 10 seats, with Ohio, Michigan, Alabama, Idaho, Minnesota, Missouri, West Virginia, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island each having one fewer seat. California will have four more seats than it otherwise would have; Texas will have three more seats; and New York, Florida, and New Jersey will have one additional seat each.

    Illegal immigrants and their U.S.-born minor children will redistribute five seats in 2020, with Ohio, Michigan, Alabama, Minnesota, and West Virginia each losing one seat in 2020 that they otherwise would have had. California and Texas will each have two additional seats, and New York will have one additional seat.


    You know Democrats gerrymander as well right? I'm for eliminating gerrymandering all together.
