MAGA Moves: Jim Jordan Moved to Top Position on House Judiciary Committee – Mark Meadows Moved to House Oversight…

These moves highlight how President Donald Trump, and the priorities he has put forth into the GOP, are now leading the Republican party.   The President is correct: “the republican party has never been more united.”  Most of the GOPe ranks in the House have been removed and the strategic conservative/nationalist movement is now in place.

HJC Ranking Member Doug Collins is running for a Georgia Senate Seat; within the republican House rules he must leave his ranking position on the committee. Today the House steering committee overwhelmingly picked Representative Jim Jordan to take over as the top ranking member on the Judiciary Committee to replace Doug Collins.

Mark Meadows will take over republican leadership of the House Oversight Committee for the remainder of the year replacing Jim Jordan. This is a smart move as Jordan will be in position to counter the efforts of Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler.

Additionally, and in anticipation of the Republicans retaking the House in November, this move is a unifying effort by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to ascend the MAGA coalition into more influence. Kevin McCarthy wants to be Speaker if Republicans can retake the House.

Jim Jordan was a founder of the House Freedom Caucus and was adverse to the GOPe leadership interests of Speaker Paul Ryan and Leader Kevin McCarthy. However, McCarthy recognizes the new Republican party is the party of President Trump and the blue-collar coalition. His support for Jim Jordan is reflective of the Trump movement now leading the party.

WASHINGTON DC – During a closed-door meeting on Thursday, the GOP Steering Committee overwhelmingly selected Jordan (R-Ohio) to be the top Republican on the panel, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the internal vote. Jordan will replace Rep. Doug Collins, who recently announced a Georgia Senate bid and is required to step down from the top post under GOP conference rules.

The full Republican conference still needs to approve Jordan and Meadows for the posts, but usually backs the recommendations from the Steering Committee, which includes the top members of GOP leadership — including Jordan’s former rival House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), whose vote carries the most weight.

Collins is not expected to step down immediately, and leadership has indicated that they would give him a month-long period to transition his staff.

Before the Steering Committee voted on Thursday, Jordan and Meadows — who are fresh off assisting with Trump’s impeachment defense — made a pitch to their colleagues on the panels. No other candidates ran for the jobs, however, essentially ensuring they were locks for the positions.

Meadows is retiring, however, so the GOP will have to find a another leader for the panel later this year. (more)

          They even went so far as to “invite” around 25,000 “undocumented” Mexican workers to replace Americans in 2004, 5 and 6… there were Mexican license plates everywhere and quite a few Americans that once built and maintained the city were seen working at Home Depot and Lowe’s.

          • America needs to consider religion when letting people in (e.g., Catholics from Mexico, Muslims from the ME, injected into Protestant America), otherwise they are basically working to establish the incoming religions over the home-grown ones (remember what the Constitution says about that).

            But they will not address the larger problem, beyond vague “culture”, that all religions are not created equal, and all religions feel they must demand obedience from their members to their respective dogmas (and again, they are certainly not all equal in that regard). The main division of mankind is in the religions to which various peoples adhere, and the fact that none have eliminated all of the false dogmas from the times when they originated, the falsest going far, far back beyond the beginning of known human history in fact.

            Religious coercion of the individual, taught from early youth, and projected upon the masses, is the enemy of man, that is why secular law was born, something that Muslims, in particular now, still haven’t recognized.

            America was founded upon the Enlightenment, and immigrants should be required to thoroughly understand that, and that their religion (even if it is really just a cult) must take second place always to the inalienable rights of the individual, deriving from the individual’s essential spiritual being, and each being a “unit of mind” (the smallest element capable of human reason), which connects our physical realm with the higher, spiritual realm of meaning, a.k.a. God (in the end, it comes down to the individual and God alone, not to any mass religion — God is meaningfulness itself, and the Great Coherence, naturally binding all to the Truth, in any “final” analysis).

            Consider that as coming from my inner voice. It has been my better nature, since I was 14 and my mind came alive to such higher wisdom. But I digress (ho-ho, do I digress…tough nuggies, monkey boy…it has a sense of humor, too, or maybe that’s just me).

      I live in Meadows’ district. I attended the first meeting he had in my town (home of the White Squirrel) when he ran the first time. He said at that time he would not serve in Congress more than 8 years. Having heard him speak locally several times, you could tell how his relationship with POTUS was quickly developing. He will continue to serve the President in some capacity. There are some strong candidates for his seat including his Deputy Chief of Staff who had been with him from the beginning. Unfortunately, parts of the district were redrawn which increased the number of Democrat voters, but the seat is definitely winnable. There is a very strong Republican candidate for Governor in NC, Dan Forest, the current Lt. Governor, and he should be able to win. However, there will be considerable outside money and influence by Dems. I feel certain Trump will hold a rally in NC this election cycle.

        Kevin McCarthy has been a surprise in a good way. He is working out very well indeed.

        Isn’t it interesting how talented people have been moved to occupy the right positions at a crucial time?

        Jim Jordan wanted to be Minority Leader. If he had won, he would not have been available to do the good, important work he has done the past several months. The man who beat him for Minority Leader had the wisdom and proper attitude to agree to shuffle a couple of seats to temporarily assign Jordan to HPSCI along with his regular seats on Judiciary and Oversight.

        John Ratcliffe was happy to be nominated for DNI. He was blocked from that position and thus was available to engage in his superior practice of the law serving on both HPSCI and House Judiciary.

        Doug Collins wanted that senate interim appointment and was disappointed not to be named. He thus was available to hold his ground as the ranking member on the Judiciary committee where he worked tirelessly to protect the president, the presidency, the House, and the Constitution.

        The Democrats hired a team of Lawfare attorneys tohelp them take down Trump. The President was not allowed to be represented by having his own attorneys or executive branch attorneys present to represent him during the House proceedings. Instead, a 15-year staffer who serves as lead counsel for the Republicans on the House Oversight committee under Jim Jordan, Steve Castor, worked tirelessly, showed up to testify in front of millions while bringing his binders in a shopping bag, and, always outnumbered, defended the President.

        If there are no atheists in foxholes, there should be no one who cannot see the hand of God at work. This nation again has been blessed. Keep praying and walking out your faith.

      Don’t forget, McCarthy was actually next in line for the speakership when Boehner retired, but he went onto Hannity and gloated about the select committee (which was looking into Benghazi) soon after the email scandal broke and commented about her approval numbers going down.

      The Dems screamed that he was politicizing the investigation, and they were able to strong-arm the republicans (Trey Gowdy was in charge) about it, and keep the investigation very narrowly focused on events on that 9/11 and not much else.

      I just read this politico article about McCarthy, and am reminded of how often the Republican house just gave into the dems at the slightest bit of pressure, and because of that, there was never any real understanding of either Benghazi or her email scandal or Fast and Furious or the IRS stuff either.

      Contrast that with the Dems running roughshod over congress with this impeachment farce, and I just want to bang my head against the wall..

      https://www.politico.com/story/2015/10/hillary-clinton-benghazi-kevin-mccarthy-214325

      From the article – “On Tuesday, McCarthy bragged to Fox News’ Sean Hannity that “everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi Special Committee, a select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping.”

      Anyway, shortly after McCarthy’s gaffe, a rumor came out that he was having an affair with congresswoman Renee Elmers and the two public back-to-back mistakes cost him the speakership.

      McCarthy backed out of the race and the republicans drafted a reluctant Paul Ryan, and he went on to be a complete disaster and lose the house.

        So who all is on Fox now that is of questionable loyalty? Is Trey Gowdy friend or foe, or worse yet — wolf in sheeps clothing? Is McCarthy still on fox? Paul Ryan? How swampy is Fox,

        We as a nation need to crystallize the issues. Define the principles of what citizens really need for Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, and then identify the current practical issues and goals clearly. Once we do this, we will be able to vet true Patriots from enemies.

        We have to educate the populace on these issues
        Get good representation, not only in government, but in the communication networks:
        — school from preschool to Graduate degree and continuing education
        Call out and expose those issues pretending to be for the people that actually enslave us
        Use the consitution and law to identify the socialist/communists, but more importantly the traitorous wolves in sheeps clothing and neutralize or eliminate them:
        — the lawfare group
        — Obama et al
        — Shiff et all
        — Warner et all
        — clintons et all
        — Pelosi, Nadler et al
        — Biden, Kerry et al
        — US Chamber et al
        — Those orchestrating the diversion of 3/4ths and 3 Trillion of our healthcare dollars

        These people should hang. If we can’t hang them they need to go to jail for life, if we can’t lock them up, they need to forever be labelled as the stench/scum they are, marginalized, and neutralized.

    In fairness to Kevin McCarthy, he has been a Trump supporter for a long time.

    In retrospect, it’s unfortunate he said one dumb thing about the Benghazi investigation hurting hiLlARy’s poll numbers and lost getting the Speakership because of it.

    Trump wouldn’t have had nearly as hard a time in the House if McCarthy had been Speaker, and I do believe Republicans would still control the House today if not for Paul Ryan’s deliberate sabotage of House Republicans.

    It is so incredibly refreshing & exciting to see the GOP House turn towards President Trump & away from the spineless John Boner & equally spineless Paul RINO.

    And I too had my doubt about Kevin McCarthy eventually ascending to the Speaker position following the next Republican takeover. However, Mr. McCarthy has slowly, steadily won me over (over time) with his always fervent support of President Trump & passionate attacks on the Dems prior to, during, & post-impeachment.

    I am relieved that McCarthy got religion in the process of getting Trump. And President Trump was most supportive of McCarthy in today’s “Victory Lap” @ the White House.

    And yet another tip of the cap to President Trump with his support of Senate Republican candidates in this past year’s election. We picked up a few additional seats, & damn if President Trump didn’t end up needing every 1 of them to get aquitted!!

    It is truly amazing to see Republican Congress’ morphing into MAGA, KAG, + vociferously supporting President Trump thru the impeachment. Add this to ALL of President Trump’s remarkably numerous accomplishments thus far & we’ve got to make some space on Mt Rushmore to fit in our beloved President!!

    Loved his State of the Union speech. Loved his victory lap. Love his rallies.

    COPYING AND PASTING FROM MY FB PAGE:

    *** LET’S SEE IF SUNDANCE CAN CONVINCE ME… ***

    EXCERPTING:

    These moves highlight how President Donald Trump, and the priorities he has put forth into the GOP, are now leading the Republican party.

    * Sorry. Don’t see it. If Trump were leading the GOP… McConnell and the Senate would have shut down the phony “impeachment.” Plenty of LEGAL grounds – as well as ethical – which they could have cited.

    * And… Trump SAID he wanted witnesses. Did he get them? No. (Right?)

    The President is correct: “the republican party has never been more united.”

    * Uh-huh. (*SNORT*) (*SHRUG*) Again… sorry… I just don’t see it.

    Most of the GOPe ranks in the House have been removed and the strategic conservative/nationalist movement is now in place.

    * McCarthy is RYAN’S hand-picked successor. McConnell is… McConnell. As I noted today, Trump didn’t even MENTION Rand Paul – let alone thank him… let alone laud HIM – during his pep rally.

    * And Sundance himself is the one who keeps pointing out that the Senate Intelligence Select Committee is totally corrupt – controlled by and appointed by McConnell.

    * So far, all Sundance is achieving is making me wonder… “WHAT’S GOTTEN INTO HIM? WHO’S GOTTEN TO HIM?!”

    HJC Ranking Member Doug Collins is running for a Georgia Senate Seat; within the republican House rules he must leave his ranking position on the committee. Today the House steering committee overwhelmingly picked Representative Jim Jordan to take over as the top ranking member on the Judiciary Committee to replace Doug Collins.

    * Big deal. (*SHRUG*) They’re in the MINORITY…!!!

    Mark Meadows will take over republican leadership of the House Oversight Committee for the remainder of the year replacing Jim Jordan. This is a smart move as Jordan will be in position to counter the efforts of Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler.

    * That’s not how the House works. Dems have near-absolute power administratively. (Sundance knows this.)

    * David Vargha… I find this latest Sundance piece VERY out of character. Just sayin’… just NOTING.

    Additionally, and in anticipation of the Republicans retaking the House in November, this move is a unifying effort by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to ascend the MAGA coalition into more influence. Kevin McCarthy wants to be Speaker if Republicans can retake the House.

    * Again… MCCARTHY is RYAN’S hand-picked successor.

    (*SILENCE*)

    * Again… Jordan ran what I can only characterize as a FAKE leadership challenge to McCarthy back after the 2018 election.

    * I’m sorry; I can’t trust Jordan. I DON’T trust Jordan. Think back to how many times we’ve gotten burned.

    Jim Jordan was a founder of the House Freedom Caucus and was adverse to the GOPe leadership interests of Speaker Paul Ryan and Leader Kevin McCarthy. However, McCarthy recognizes the new Republican party is the party of President Trump and the blue-collar coalition. His support for Jim Jordan is reflective of the Trump movement now leading the party.

    * OR… (*SMIRK*)… McCarthy wants it to LOOK that way… and it doesn’t HURT him as long as the GOP is the House MINORITY.

    (*SHRUG*)

    Meadows is retiring…

    *** MEADOWS IS RETIRING…?!?! ***

    * Gang. We’re being played. (*SHRUG*) Hope I’m wrong… but… that’s the way it looks to me.
