HOMELAND SECURITY SHENANIGANS?
Liberal U.S. Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California abruptly withdrew his name from consideration to become the next Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives this week.
The news shocked Washington, D.C. First, McCarthy was considered a lock to replace his liberal ally, outgoing U.S. Speaker John Boehner. as the “Republican” leader – to the extent the word “Republican” means anything anymore.
Also, lawmakers told us McCarthy was still actively lobbying for the post within a half hour of his shocking announcement.
Not long after, a salacious back story emerged offering an explanation as to McCarthy’s decision … an alleged affair with fellow left-leaning lawmaker Renee Ellmers of North Carolina (a.k.a. this establishment trick turner).
Now, a new twist …
Edits to McCarthy and Ellmers’ Wikipedia pages which made reference of the affair were traced back to … wait for it … the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Specifically to DHS offices in Springfield, Virginia.
“Ellmers is alleged to have been involved in an extra-marital affair with Republican House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy since 2011,” the edit to Ellmers’ page noted.
The reference was removed, but not before it got screen-capped …
As we said in our initial treatment of the McCarthy-Ellmers allegations, we don’t really care if they were indeed “bumping uglies” in the corridors of power. Obviously they will have to answer to their families for that – and address any hypocrisy in their prior political pronouncements – but, you know, whatever.
Assuming no tax dollars were wasted (or votes traded) in furtherance of the dalliance … is it our business?
Seriously: Don’t all of these “leaders” have affairs? Didn’t Boehner? Is that why they are contemptible?
As we opined here, our focus is on keeping the GOP from installing another left-leaning liberal in a leadership position. And if you care about your wallet/ pocketbook … that should be your focus, too.
“The U.S. Congress cannot have yet another ‘meet the new boss, same as the old boss’ moment,” we wrote. “Either it radically reinvents itself and starts representing its citizens again, or the Republic dies.”
Boehner rolled over for Obama from the day “Republicans” retook the House in 2011. The debt ceiling debate? He caved. The fiscal cliff? He caved. Obamacare defunding? He caved. Obama’s executive amnesty? Again … he caved. All while his “conservative” GOP majority continued the profligate spending that has our national debt approaching the $18.5 trillion mark.
McCarthy would have continued down that path … which is why we’re glad he’s out of the race (irrespective of the reason).
Now, as for federal agencies spreading dirt online – assuming that’s really what happened here – we’ve got a big problem with that.
It used to be that the Democrat Party had Lies, Myths and Fables…it used to control its Dumbasses…
Add Sleaze to the list of ingredients that make up the Democrat Party.
As your failure becomes more apparent, what else will you reach for to try to save your drowning party of fools and clowns?
What a stupid comment.
No, Stupid was the description. And appropriately so.
Maybe the People need to send a message to our elected leaders that we don’t care how slimy their personal lives are, just stay on message with what is Constitutionally right. This is how politicians get leveraged into voting for things that are totally against the interest of their constituents.
who traced it back to dhs? looks like fits is turning into a mini me benghazi panel.
You ignorant FUCKS will believe anything the media, or FITSNews, feeds you…if it “FITS” your mythology.
Why are you all-of-the-sudden disavowing the gods that you so readily worship when they tell you what you want to hear?
Looks like the flood waters spared GT/flip’s Mom’s basement.
That, or he’s sittin’ in a pool of crap.
nothing new there, sitting in a pool of crap that is
Be careful what you ask for. It may happen.
John Boehner is going. Now what?
You asked for Hillary..and that’s really fucked you Democrats in the ass…hasn’t it? ….LMAO….
Others take the bait. Not me.
Too late for that…FITS, and his merry band of Liberal idiots, have already hooked your stupid ass, and thrown you in the cooler…
You are FitsNews biggest reader and contributor to the comments.
That makes you a the biggest liberal idiot in all of SC.
I’m actually a liberal plant sent here to make Republicans look stupid. Don’t break my cover though, ok?
Like the dog who chases cars for years, and finally catches one. Mouth full of Buick and no idea what to do with it…
Funny as hell for a liberal dumb ass!
Do you think anyone here doesn’t know it’s you flip/pogo et al?
Shit.Flip knows his social media accounts have been hacked.Your point?
You are a strange bird; strange bird indeed.
We may just get rid of you liberals.
Oh horrors, There is sex in Washington. And I thought the American public were the only people they were fucking, silly me.(except for Bill Clinton getting blow jobs in the the White House)
It does bother me that Federal agencies has gotten so blatantly involved into the political scene. If you are a Democrat, you have DHS, DOJ, IRS, EPA, etc as unpaid advisers and and legmen for your political ambitions.
Who cares if Bill Clinton got a blow job???????
Well obviously I do.
Queued up for the money shot.
Only Cathy McMorris Rodgers should be Speaker
“Rodger’s Rangers” in the House of Representatives could work well with a Trump Administration effectually neutering establishment McConnell, McCain, Graham, Hatch etc 2016-20
It might well be that a person like her could surface as a compromise candidate. Trey Gowdy would be my pick, but he has to finish the Benghazi investigation and probably does not want it.
Benghazi’s been over for some time now. Any idea when they’ll stop blowing tax dollars ?
Those idiots love blowing tax dollars – and so does erneba – he has never had a job in his life so that is where most of our tax dollars go . . .
You get batteries or need me to make a handcrank model ?
Either one.A Louisville Slugger would do just fine.For you my love.Treated.That way I don’t have to use K-Y!
god you are sexy.We need a secret password.Rocky and I are working with F.B.I and trying to find out who is posting things we don’t like.
SECRET PASSWORD: 143
I notice pretty much all republicans are considered ‘liberals’ by this blog.
So, who is a real republican then?
Ronald Reagan would be a liberal by your standards.
Tea Party is the new Repub…anything else is a RINO sellout liberal. Didn’t you get the memo? I’ve had “conservatives” argue that Reagan was a RINO, so you are correct in your statement.
So, FitsNews wants the whole country to be run like South Carolina and Kansas?
what he really want to do is fuck the republican presidential candidate and brag about it on his blog. donald you better have eyes in the back of your head or you are in for a painful awakening.
LOL 10+what he really want to do is fuck the republican presidential candidate and brag about it on his blog”
Whatever happened to that poster that went by the posting name “Fits Ain’t No Republican”??????
Can I suck your c$%K?
Only Dumbasses believe anything FITSNews claims.
Just look at his track record w/ candidates (win/loss records)..and you’d have to be an idiot to follow any of FITS instruction.
So you eat up everything he says then, right dumbass?
In a statement later, Ellmers said: “As someone who has been targeted by completely false accusations and innuendo, I have been moved by the outpouring of support and prayers from my colleagues, constituents and friends. Now I will be praying for those who find it acceptable to bear false witness.”
Shame on FitsNews.Just another lie intended to smear others.They have tracked Wiki posts to a computer at Homeland Security.Just like Obama put the Secret Service on Chaveez.
You would figure a woman beater would demonstrate just a little restraint before trying to destroy others?
You can ONLY name 5 TRUE conservatives on this Blog.
Yup. Unless you are a radical right-wing extremist you are a RINO, says FITS. Next we get, “You’re not a Real Patriot unless you’re willing to have a tantrum and shut down the government when you don’t gt what you want.
So much for that leadership and governance stuff. Takes to long; too much work. Not enough media exposure to help me get contribution for reelection. It’s a sad, sorry day In American when political theatre to get reelected replaces doing the job the electorate sent you to do. And that day is now.
By the standards of ‘real’ republicans, shouldn’t this guy be impeached?
They are all big old hypocrites – Holy Rollers in public and Freaks in private!
So you advocate spying on what people do in their Bedroom and reporting it order to damage them?
You’re the one that advocates punishing people based on what they do in the bedroom. Thank God the Supreme Court won’t let you freaks stop people who love each other from being together.
No way.That would invade the privacy of my Pit Bull.
Get me a Blue Dress, and show me where he perjured himself, and we’ll talk, you IGNORANT of History, leftwing-NAZI Motherfucker.
Why the fuck do you want a blue dress you sick fucker?
Tango wears the blue dress today and flip wears the blue dress tomorrow . . . .
So flip gets the sloppy seconds, LOL !
How do you like my dress?
Hey and the COL play dress up together when the COL puts on the General’s belt with a huge buckle on it. Ambulatory coup! You just thought you were Bill’s girl, you cheap little tramp!
One of the side effects of this mess with Republican leadership is that it appears to be shoving the problems of the Hillary and Democrats off the front page. This is a mess and it deserves coverage, but the Republicans should quietly try to get this problem solved and off the front page and nightly NEWS. There may be some in-fighting and disagreement, but this should be taking place without exposing the internal turmoil within the party. I have a tendency to think egos are ruling the day.
Yeah…if the GOP hid it…the media would not publicize it I’m sure…
I’ll shoot the RNC an E-mail and suggest that it’s the Republicans’ actions that have the media attacking them…not the media’s corruption, along with the bidding of the Democrat Party..That should fix it.
And I’m sure FITS would drop it…if we ask him…(:
What don’t you understand? I said it deserves coverage, but the Republicans should be careful, as not to overexpose the situation in public by sniping and arguing with each other. That should be done in a smarter way, and get solved sooner without revealing too much. We know the problem exists, and it will get coverage, as well it should.
Republicans sure don’t mind millions of tax dollars wasted on congressional witch hunts against politicians they don’t like.
The only thing lower than a Liberal Republican is Whale Dung and a Democrat in that order!
The GOPers have been acting crazy of late. Has anyone checked them for selenium toxicity from locoweed-fed Texas beef.
Where have you been since January 2009?
I see Homeland Security computers were used to post this bull shit on WiKi!
We may get Obama yet.He and Hillary can be inidicted at the same time.
Ellmers’s bangs are so hot right now.
Oh God please cut us a slice of
Back-Door-Deals-With-Obama-Ryan and all of us will be
Brain-dead like the corrupt OTHER RINOs and Boehner Dims who
have corrupted D. C.
That’s right—never met a TARP deal he wouldn’t vote for and
loves no child left behind
Wants to spend like Boehner and McConnell on crack just like
he’s lost his RINO mind !!!
Is this what they mean when they say politics makes strange bedfellows?
What are the chances that Obama had the dirt on Boner and used it to get him to cave? Scum.
They’re letting Wrenzie Rice sneak into the Homeland Security offices and do that shit.
Somebody needs to call her keepers.
They got to Kevin McCarthy, Trey Gowdy and Justice Black. What you are seeing is the thugocracy back room Chicago politics at it’s finest. They have a digital record of everyone courtesy of the NSA’s collection program. Character assassination works and blackmail and extortion are the oldest tricks in the book!
Ya’ll pretty much aren’t interested in a cooperative government.
GOP, the Party of “No” has officially become “the Party of No Return”
As they turn down their last, dead-end road.
Predictably, it’s a toll road.
We are watching the Tea Party loons kill a spineless GOP.
