Today at 2pm Eastern time the US House of Representatives is expected to vote for the new Speaker of the House. How this vote will go is still in question.
It’s widely expected that GOP leader Kevin McCarthy will not have enough votes required to win the Speakership. The Congress will be made up of 222 Republicans and 212 Democrats. The number of votes needed to become Speaker is 218.
Between 10 and 15 GOP members are not expected to vote for McCarthy. They want a Speaker who will represent the American people and stand up against the communists trying to take over this country.
Many don’t believe that McCarthy is the strong leader that is required at this time to lead the House against the corruption and destruction of America.

The Democrats and RINOs in the GOP believe this may be an opportunity to steal the House. They are so used to stealing elections, they think they can steal this one as well.
Current Democrat Head of the House, Hakeem Jeffries sees this as a time to take over the House.
The new Republican majority plans to seat serial fraudster George Santos tomorrow.
One of many reasons why we must take back the House.

Jeffries ignores the immigration fraudster, Ilhan Omar and other criminal and corrupt Democrats in the House, in attacking new GOP Representative George Santos.
RINO pundit Bill Kristol suggests that perhaps the Dems are going to work with the corrupt RINOs in the GOP to give the Speakership to the Dems.
Hakeem Jeffries: “We must take back the House. Immediately.”
This is probably just rhetoric. Or is some scheme afoot to have a few Republicans join with all the Democrats, after McCarthy falls short, to elect a non-election denying, non-crazy Republican speaker? https://t.co/L7Xt5uahzx

We don’t know what will happen but this is certainly a possibility. Speaker candidates from President Trump to Democrat Jeffries have been discussed as potential candidates. [Trump would be a gift and very effective – Jeffries and others would be more of the same.]
We will know in a few hours who our new Speaker is but we have no idea right now who that will be.
