I Love the Debate to Make McCarthy Speaker: More fights in congress will only push honesty to the top and give corruption no place to hide

One of the biggest problems with progressives is that they expect that everything will “progress” along with their assumed trajectory of destruction. There has been a plan for the destruction of America from outside forces who long ago figured out that fighting the American military was not going to work for them, so they turned to sabotage, political subversion, and even election fraud to wear away the American government into global submission gradually. Communism and socialism are the foundations of the progressive political movement, so one of their greatest weapons has been to erode away the republic style of government in America into a more democratic form of mass rule with consensus building, and for the last one hundred years, that has been the basic premise of all our government, from the school board level to the debates in Congress in Washington D.C. With all that said, I found it amusing and astonishing how people reacted to the vote for Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House during the first week of January 2023. It took debates all week and 15 different votes to get members of Congress to agree on McCarthy as the Speaker, which I thought was acceptable. I had no problem with the arguments; as I said, this is what government should look like. People should argue and push and shove while managing important matters because that’s how agreements on fundamental truths are determined. Yet I had many people asking me what I thought about the whole “speaker” issue because the media was reporting the whole thing as a travesty, and they believed what they were hearing, which was funny and sad all at that same time.

I have explained to Lynda O’Conner, president of the Lakota school board, the government school in my neighborhood, that government is not supposed to be centered on consensus building; it should be centered on honest debate. I had to laugh at her and some of the other school board members when they sat me down in a basement back in April of 2023 with some local Tea Party members and someone they thought was a great legal mind and tried to apply a new variation of the Delphi Technique on me, to get me convinced that the new school board member Darbi Boddy was bad for the school board and had to be removed. It was insulting to me because I have taught those techniques to hundreds of people for over two decades, and it certainly wasn’t going to work on me. Instead, I explained to them that I thought Darbi was great for the Lakota school board, we have been able to expose a lot of terrible stuff that we otherwise would have never known about because of Darbi, and I further told Lynda that this kind of contention and debate was how I liked to do things. Getting along isn’t the goal; I’ve been in meetings where chairs and computers are thrown, and holes are punched through walls, people get mad, they want to fight, and tempers flare. But that’s all good. I love it; it always forces people to work through their problems and get to the truth. I consider the consensus-building efforts she and others were trying to apply to me to be the evilest thing in the world, using friendships and peer pressure to whip up votes that don’t follow logic but sentiment. We left company that day to never speak again, with years of friendships tossed out the window. That is essentially what has been wrong with all government.

And that’s why I told everyone during the McCarthy vote that I was happy, not sad, by the process. We have a lot to do in the people’s House. There are many investigations into crimes that have ostentatiously occurred, the impeachments of Trump, the lies and manipulations that occurred under Nancy Pelosi, and the way that Congress grossly abused its power. We can’t play patty cake with these people. There have to be punishments for what occurred. And we still have to settle all the crimes that occurred with Covid. You can’t lock down society, conduct a coup against an American president, and deliberately kill people by denying them medicine for a government-controlled pandemic and just get away with it. There will have to be some complex discussions about where Covid came from, who made it, and who let it loose into the world. I think these are rhetorical questions at this point, but we need to ask them formally and take action correctly and legally. Then there is the Joe Biden mess, the laptop, the relationship with Ukraine, and the open border policy that is an open harassment of American sovereignty. Biden, at best, has committed sedition by not securing the border, either by sheer stupidity or purposeful insurrection. We must have a tough congress to ask those hard questions and overcome a media obsessed with consensus building who will try to sabotage the opinion of the American people the way I described the consensus-building exercise that school boards typically use to sell radicalism to the public. 

I was actually disappointed that things were settled by Friday night. I wouldn’t have minded seeing a month of debate, fistfights, and messy arguments. People keep saying that Marjorie Taylor Green has stepped over the line and is sleeping with McCarthy because she is so cozy with him. I see only good things coming out of Green. I met her a few times recently while she was campaigning for J.D. Vance. She knows what she is doing. If she can pull Kevin McCarthy from a RINO position into the Freedom Caucus and put her on some committees that will be investigating Joe Biden and others, that’s great. I hope that romance action isn’t part of under the sheet negotiations. With her, I don’t think so. But humans do those kinds of things. What I care about are the results. And the trajectory of change is not headed in favor of the progressives. Instead, it’s going the other way. I’m not particularly impressed with Speakers of the House and their third most powerful person in the world status. I have one living essentially in my neighborhood, John Boehner. I have a lot of mutual friends who love Boehner. I never have, not when he was at the height of his power, and certainly not now. Boehner realized what was cooking in 2015; the powers of consensus-building and progressivism were eroding and falling apart before their eyes. It’s not getting stronger. The same path of destruction occurred with Nancy Pelosi and Paul Ryan. McCarthy either gets right with the Freedom Caucus or will lose power. That is how it is and where it’s going. So I expected a fight. I also expected nobody but McCarthy to be Speaker.

There are still a lot of RINOs in Congress, but only 20 or so Freedom members. But that number is growing more and more each session. And eventually, it will primarily all be Freedom members. So there is no reason to play nice with Democrats and Progressives. Just don’t overplay the hands. And debate and fighting show the strength of the hand; that’s how you know what’s really going on. Playing nice and holding hands with consensus building will do nothing but create more corruption, and for voters, that’s what they are determined to see an end to. The debate shows that we are headed in the right direction.
