Speaker of the House

Updated: Oct 22, 2023

This afternoon the House of Representatives held a second vote for the Speaker of the House position but once again failed. We watched as the Republican Members of the House of Representatives failed to stand united and support the only Congressman running for the position. Jim Jordan, a conservative America first Representative, ended the day with twenty-two fellow Republicans voting for individuals who were neither candidates nor seeking the position.

The twenty-two rogue congressmen voted for either Keven McCarthy who made it clear that he did not want the position and was supporting Jim Jordan or for Steve Scalise who dropped out of the race and officially endorsed Jim Jordan. Several wasted their vote for individuals who obviously had no chance to win the seat.

While America is collapsing, the people are hurting, and the world is in turmoil, twenty-two members of the party in power chose to cast their votes in a manner which will only cast a negative viewpoint of the Republican Party and severally harm America and “We The People.”

Several of these twenty-two members appeared on various news outlets and stated that they voted their conscience. They were not elected to represent their conscience; they were elected to represent their constituents. America is tired of watching their representatives behave in such an immature manner. Personal grievances do not belong on the floor of the House of Representative.

Cable news reported that these individuals' phones were melting down with the enormous numbers of calls demanding that they vote for Jim Jordan. But these individuals believe that they do not answer to their constituents but answer to their conscience.

There is a tremendous amount of work on hold while the election is taking place. These individuals are wasting our tax dollars and failing to get to the people’s business. This inside fighting must stop and stop now, or the Republican Party will cease to exist as a viable option for the American citizens.

Here are the 22 Republicans who voted against Jordan:

· Rep. Don Bacon of Nebraska

· Rep. Vern Buchanan of Florida

· Rep. Ken Buck of Colorado

· Rep. Lori Chavez-DeRemer of Oregon

· Rep. Anthony D'Eposito of New York

· Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida

· Rep. Jake Ellzey of Texas

· Rep. Drew Ferguson of Georgia

· Rep. Andrew Garbarino of New York

· Rep. Carlos Gimenenz of Florida

· Rep. Tony Gonzales of Texas

· Rep. Kay Granger of Texas

· Rep. John James of Michigan

· Rep. Jen Kiggans of Virginia

· Rep. Mike Kelly of Pennsylvania

· Rep. Nick LaLota of New York

· Rep. Mike Lawler of New York

· Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks of Iowa

· Rep. John Rutherford of Florida

· Rep. Mike Simpson of Idaho

· Rep. Pete Stauber of Minnesota

· Rep. Steve Womack of Arkansas

This was the plan all along. The far left republicans do not want a MAGA Speaker who cannot be controlled. They apparently got their way: giving Patrick Mchenry more power. He can be controlled, and he is NOT America first. The republican / democrat "idea" is a mirage. They're all on the same team.
