ADIEU, KEVIN McCARTHY

NOT THIS ONE:
kev4

THIS ONE
kevin-mccarthy

This seems both tragic and comical at the same time. McCarthy, who was being touted as the next tool of the democrat party, suddenly withdrew from the race for Speaker. The reaction to the news from different quarters was predictable, while his reasons are still unclear. He claimed “we need a strong leader.” It was also assumed it was the quote he gave a reporter about the Benghazi hearing pulling down Hillary’s poll numbers, which her flying monkey brigade instantly made into a campaign commercial.

There is a juicier rumor which I, in sympatico with Dianny, believe is the real reason. That is that in the gilded Sodom that is Washington D.C. it was discovered he was carrying on with NC representative and the Abortion Barbie of the Right, Renee Elmers. It just seems to be the kind of dirt the obama organization always profits from.C

Here’s Dianny’s piece:

My thoughts on McCarthy dropping out

But I don’t think it was Kevin’s blundering remarks about the Benghazi committee that fueled this decision.

I believe a story in Breitbart today may have a lot more to do with McCarthy’s decision not to keep his name in the running.

The Breitbart story is about North Carolina Congressman Walter Jones writing a letter urging candidates to drop out if they had even a whiff of a scandal that could destroy them or embarrass the Republican Party.

I saw that article and immediately thought of something I read on Twitter last week.

In case you missed it, Charles C Johnson from gotnews.com — admittedly not the most unimpeachable source — reported in late September that Kevin McCarthy has been carrying on an affair with North Carolina Congresswoman Renee Ellmers (which has resulted in Johnson receiving a cease and desist order this week from Ellmers’ attorney).

IN CASE YOU MISSED ANYTHING, HERE ARE SOME OF THE GORY DETAILS
McCarthy withdraws from speaker race, vote postponed
McCarthy’s decision, announced moments before Republicans were set to nominate their candidate, will postpone the vote for speaker. McCarthy had been running against Reps. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, and Daniel Webster, R-Fla., before he dropped out, and it’s unclear whether other candidates will now step forward.

‘ORANGE CRUSHED’ IS PULLING SOME SKULLDUGGERY TO TRY TO HAND-PICK HIS SUCCESSOR

While Boehner originally was set to resign at the end of the month, the speaker said in a statement Thursday afternoon he “will serve as Speaker until the House votes to elect a new Speaker.” He added, “I’m confident we will elect a new Speaker in the coming weeks.”

Louie Gohmert: Boehner Postponed Speaker Vote ‘Like Any Good Dictator Would’
LOUIE GOHMERT HAS NEVER BEEN ONE TO SUFFER IN SILENCE

“It actually pointed to the reason we need a new speaker, and that is because it’s like he feels he has to pick a successor, like any good dictator would,” the Texas Republican said in comments to TheBlaze Thursday night after House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy abruptly took himself out of the running as GOP members gathered for the secret-ballot vote. “But this is not supposed to be a dictatorship. This was an awesome time, a great opportunity for the conference to come together after Kevin’s announcement and have a family discussion.”

Republican: ‘Very real’ chance GOP will need Dems to elect Speaker
APPARENTLY NASTY PELOSER DIDN’T GET HER PACK OF LIBERAL JACKALS TO COOPERATE TO KEEP THE SPEAKERSHIP IN THE HANDS OF ONE OF HER PUPPETS

Republicans may be forced to solicit Democratic help to break their Speaker stalemate, Rep. Charlie Dent (R) said Thursday.

The Pennsylvania centrist, who often serves as a mouthpiece for outgoing Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), said there is only a small handful of Republicans who can win 218 GOP votes to fill Boehner’s shoes. The trouble is, none of them wants the job.

“We may need a bipartisan coalition to elect our next Speaker,” Dent told reporters after Thursday’s closed-door GOP meeting. “That’s a very real possibility right now, and I think anybody who’s honest about this knows it. They may not want to talk about it, but they know it.”

Report: Boehner phones Paul Ryan, asks him to run for Speaker — or else he might stay on as Speaker himself
REMEMBER HE WAS OUR VP NOMINEE LAST ELECTION

This makes three top House Republicans who’ve endorsed Ryan in the last two days as a potential uniting force. Yesterday it was Trey Gowdy:

“To me, just speaking as one member, the smartest kid in the class is Paul Ryan,” Gowdy said. “If I had one draft choice and I was starting a new country, I would draft Paul to run it. Not because I agree with him on everything, but because he’s super, super smart. And when someone is super, super smart and is not interested, that tells you something. It tells me a lot”

Trump takes credit for McCarthy dropping out
HEEEERES DONALD!

Donald Trump is taking credit for House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) dropping out of the race for Speaker.

“They’re giving me a lot of credit for that, because I said you really need somebody very, very tough and very smart — you know smart goes with tough, not just tough,” the Republican presidential front-runner said at an event in Las Vegas. “I know tough people. They’re not smart, that’s the worst, OK? That’s the worst. You’ve gotta be smart.

“But we need smart, we need tough, we need the whole package — you know, like me,” he added.

Dem. Leader: McCarthy Exit a ‘Sign That Republicans Are Unfit To Lead’
STENY HOYER SPEAKS OUT IN THE SPIRIT OF TRUE DEMOCRAT BI-PARTISANSHIP

As a result of their divisions and their efforts to disrupt Congress’s work, we’ve experienced a government shutdown, a near-default on our debt, and too many missed opportunities to grow our economy and support job creation,” Hoyer said in a statement.

He blamed the splits on GOP conservatives, not the establishment side of the GOP.

“With Speaker [John] Boehner resigning last month and Leader [Eric] Cantor losing his primary election last year, this is just the latest chapter in the history of an extreme wing of the Republican party controlling their conference,” Hoyer said.

“says Paul Ryan would be a good Speaker and work w/ Dems. Then says he probably just hurt Ryan’s chances by saying that.”
Gutierrez and Ryan have worked together in the past, notably on comprehensive immigration reform.

In that pursuit, in 2013 Gutierrez said he saw Ryan as his “ally” in fighting for amnesty for illegal immigrants.

Gingrich open to return to Speakership
ARE YOU FREAKING SERIOUS????

“If you were to say to me 218 have called you up and given you their pledge, obviously no citizen could ever turn down that kind of challenge,” Gingrich said, as first reported by the Washington Free Beacon.
He compared the scenario to George Washington coming out of retirement to become America’s first president.
“This is why George Washington came out of retirement — because there are moments you can’t avoid,” Gingrich said.

Newt Gingrich: Personal Reflections on Pope Benedict XVI

Let me say up front that I have a very personal feeling about Pope Benedict XVI’s retirement.

The Holy Father’s visit to Washington, D.C. in 2008 changed my life.

It was seeing him at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception which changed my curiosity into my becoming Catholic.

Let me explain.

For years, I would attend church with Callista (who was born and raised Catholic and is a longtime member of the Choir of the Basilica). As a non-Catholic I supported her deep commitment to the Church.

Further, Callista and I made a movie about Pope John Paul II and his pilgrimage to Poland in 1979. Nine Days that Changed the World is a remarkable film about this historic visit, which created a revolution of conscience that transformed Poland and fundamentally reshaped the spiritual and political landscape of the 20th Century. In producing this movie, I became even more intrigued with the amazing life of Pope John Paul II.

I gradually became more and more interested in the Catholic Church as an institution and in the Eucharist as the centerpiece of Catholic worship.

Of course, as a historian, I had studied the Church over the centuries including its strengths and weaknesses.

Having grown up Lutheran, serving as a Protestant acolyte in military chapels while my dad was in the Army, and becoming a Baptist in graduate school, I was pretty steeped in the history of the Reformation and the Protestant approach to God.

It was the weekly experience of the Catholic Church which had a steadily growing impact on me. The sense of community and reaffirmation of Christ’s sacrifice and love every Sunday — strengthened by my study of the extraordinary leadership and evangelism of Pope John Paul II drew me closer to the Church.

And yet the intellectual curiosity had not converted into an emotional bond — until Pope Benedict XVI came to Washington, D.C. in 2008.

During this visit, the Bishops gathered at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception for Vespers with the Holy Father

The Choir of the Basilica was invited to sing for Vespers. As a spouse of a choir member, I was invited to come to the Basilica. Spouses were allowed to sit in the large Upper Church while the Choir, the hierarchy, and the Pope were in an intimate Crypt Church below (which was good for the Choir because the Crypt Church is both beautiful and has extraordinary acoustics). Here, we watched the Vesper Service on large screen televisions.

To our surprise, the Holy Father, came through the sanctuary and visited with guests in the Upper Church. There was clearly joy in his eyes – it was absolutely stunning. His theme for the visit was “Christ our Hope” which I certainly thought captured the heart of Christianity in three words. His interaction with people was joyous as he communicated God’s love.

I was really surprised by the intense personal happiness Pope Benedict XVI conveyed. I had previously seen him as an intellectual German theologian (one of the greatest theologians of the 20th century) but not as an emotional evangelist like Pope John Paul II.

Yet here the Holy Father was visibly enjoying, indeed thrilled, by his chance to bring Christ’s message of salvation to the United States.

That night at dinner I told Monsignor Walter Rossi, the Rector of the Basilica and our good friend, that I wanted to become Catholic.

So you can see why I was deeply moved by the announcement that for the first time since 1415, a Pope would resign (and that occasion involved a political solution to having multiple Popes during the Avignon period) and for the first time since 1294 (and to the best of our knowledge only the second time in history) a Pope would resign because of age and energy.

In his last meeting with the Cardinals, Pope Benedict XVI noted “One of you is the future Pope, whom I today promise my unconditional reverence and obedience.”

This is a unique historic moment for the Catholic Church.

It is also a deeply personal moment for me.

Last night the Choir of the Basilica, led by Dr. Peter Latona, offered “Truth and Beauty: A Musical Tribute to Pope Benedict XVI.” Their wonderful music was interspersed with quotes from the Holy Father. (It was broadcast by EWTN).

Allow me to close with one example of his deep faith: “Love is the light — and in the end, the only light — that can always illuminate a world grown dim and give us the courage needed to keep living and working. Love is possible, and we are able to practice it because we are created in the image of God. To experience love and in this way to cause the light of God to enter into the world — this is the invitation I would like to extend.”

Pope Benedict may have retired, but his words will live on forever.

Your Friend,

Newt

PROUD to be American!

This is worth every minute!

Trailer for the movie he mentions in the NRA speech.

Netflix doesn’t have the movie. You can buy the DVD at http://www.cityuponahill.com/ but it’s not clear to me if it’s been released yet or if these are pre-orders.

Wow! Newt has authored 24 books, including 13 fiction and non-fiction New York Times bestsellers!

The books he mentions in this speech are:

To Try Men’s Souls: A Novel of George Washington and the Fight for American Freedom By Newt Gingrich and William R. Forstchen (2009)

A Nation Like No Other: Why American Exceptionalism Matters By Newt Gingrich (2011)

Sweet Land of Liberty by Callista Gingrich (Author) and Susan Arciero (Illustrator) – Picture book: “In Sweet Land of Liberty, Ellis the Elephant sets off on a quest to find out. Through an amazing afternoon at the library, Ellis travels through time and discovers the pivotal moments that have shaped our nation’s unique history.”

I’m going to look for these in my on-line library data bank. I recently discovered I can get books at no charge from ANY of the MANY libraries that belong to the Finger Lakes Library System. I put a hold on them via the FLLS web-site and when they come in, I get an email. Dearest does the pick-up and delivery for me.

The only thing I can’t do is browse the shelves, so I’m paying a lot more attention to title suggestions, like Newt gave in this speech. I think I’ll also look for Lynne Cheney’s picture books. They popped up when I searched Callista Gingrich’s picture book and they look wonderful!

THE THURSDAY GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

I hurried through my route today to rush home and fire up the univac with the anticipation of a child on Christmas morning.I do so enjoy reading what everybody has to say.The real beauty of our country is the diversity of its population and everyone has a unique set of life experiences to draw on.Sharing what we have learned as we travel through this life enriches all of us.

To all the lurkers out there:

Ours is a small,user-friendly site.We don’t have tens of thousands of people or threads with hundreds of comments so what you have to add to the conversation is seen and appreciated.There is no such thing as a dumb question(unless you’re talking to Helen Thomas.) If you’re looking for a respite from the tsunami of cynicism and negativity that will crescendo as the elections draw near,you have a home.Welcome.

Make no mistake,Giffords is as far left as they come.Maybe Obama arranged this as a make-good since he threw her astronaut husband out of work when he cancelled the space program.Whatever the reason,I can think of a lot of people who would deserve this honor far more than this woman.

CHARACTER MATTERS AND ROMNEY’S WORRIES ME
by Mark Levin on Sunday, January 29, 2012

It inspired the following exchange with my brother, who is one of the most intelligent and savvy individuals I know.

BRO’S REPLY:  What is the battle about? Who is the enemy? At my age, I give less credence to one’s public statements and more to those tawdry realities which so often dictate our behavior.

In this case, it appears that the real issue is ego.  Fine. Color me naive. But consider a few facts.

Newt is poorly disciplined. I remember well his leadership. And I see those same flaws now.

Remember, I was in his corner as late as last week. My son-in-law is still. But it appears that Newt believes this debate is about him. It isn’t. It’s about Obama.

If Newt is defeated by Romney, how will he act? Romney worked for the party. I fear Newt will work for … Newt.   Given his history, (I too can claim the title ‘historian’) it isn’t clear that he will put party above his own desires.

Goodness knows, looking at his marital difficulties, the man has a track record.

People are upset about Romney’s ‘evolution’ to Conservative principles over these past few years.  And I can understand their apprehension. But would the Gingrich backers in the audience tell me how you criticize the one man, all the while ignoring the former Speaker’s personal behavior over that same time period? If Newt can cheat on his 2nd wife, if anyone can justify cheating on his mate, and then find God at age 68, why can’t Romney abandon some of his earlier positions and find a philosophy closer to ours?  

As Ms. Coulter noted, Romney’s evolution should be seen as a victory for our side. But his opponents are going to find ways to weaken his position. Why? Purity? Or to quote the Third Mate from THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER. “Or was it something else? Ego, perhaps?”

The candidates all appear to agree that this is a critical election.
– Greece is broke, Italy, Spain and Ireland are ready to go.
– While our military must wear white gloves while handling the Koran, the Catholic church is under attack.
– The tax bill is 95% of GDP and rising. Nearly 50% of the nation does not pay federal taxes.

The list of disasters, starting with Holder, Geithner, and Biden grows. The metaphorical Titanic is taking on water. And we are running around the deck, checking the colors on the life boats.

Is this outrage truly about Conservative principles? Or is it about our egos?

MY RESPONSE: You can never lose quoting Red October to me 🙂

I appreciate your input very much. I was too busy being sick and raising kids to pay attention to the world before my first kid went to war. And I pretty much slept through American History in high school.

I am good friends with a lifelong Bay Stater who did pay attention. She thinks Romney is our best choice. And when I read Coulter, she makes me agree.

Then I listen to videos and debates, read other pundits, and I find myself liking Santorum or Gingrich best.

Thank goodness, there’s one candidate I can ignore. Ron Paul’s comments about foreign policy just left me cold.

When the GOP band of brothers (and sister) was huge, the MSM yammered about how weak it was.

Yet what I am struggling with now is how strong it is.

One of the PoliNators said, “I will probably be waffling when I step into the voting booth.”

I’m glad the New York primary isn’t any time real soon!
