Gaetz Special Interests Who Own McCarthy Want Us Backed Up against the Wall

Republican Representative Matt Gaetz asserted that the so-called shutdown politics has played into the favor of the “special interests” trying to sway House Speaker Kevin McCarthy.

During this week’s broadcast of FNC’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Gaetz claimed the brinksmanship centralized power, benefiting special interests behind McCarthy.

“Are there Freedom Caucus members also out of compliance?” FNC host Maria Bartiromo said.

“They were also on the Appropriations Committee. Where is the responsibility for them? Are they also out of compliance?” Bartiromo asked.

Gaetz replied:

“No, I’m not a member of the Freedom Caucus.”

“So, I will let them speak for themselves. But take, for example, the border, this issue you think is — has great primacy, and I would agree with you,” Gaetz said.

“The Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill was passed out of the Appropriations Committee in June, and yet Kevin McCarthy hasn’t put it on the floor in more than 100 days.”

“That is not serious,” he continued.

“And you know why Kevin McCarthy didn’t move our border appropriations bill?” he asked.

“Because the lobbyists and the special interests who own Kevin McCarthy want to put us in this position, where we’re backed up against the wall, facing shutdown politics,” Gatez continued.

“And what that does is it centralizes power to the people that they buy off with PAC donations and lobbyist donations,” he added.

“And then the membership doesn’t get to make real contributions to that process,” he said.

“I’m trying to democratize it.”

Watch

Last week, Gaetz and other Republicans came out of a meeting with McCarthy, confirming that bringing individual appropriations bills would now be their direction.

Last week, five Republicans joined Democrats in voting against the defense appropriations bill, which failed 212-216.

The five conservatives pushed for more spending cuts.

CNN chief congressional correspondent Manu Raju posted:

“Gaetz just told his conference that seven Rs would vote against any CR to keep government open.”

The leaders of the House Freedom Caucus and the Main Street Caucus drafted a resolution that would have extended government spending until Oct 31.

Gaetz posted on X:

“Trump Opposes the Continuing Resolution. Hold the line.”

Gaetz’s post included a post from President Donald Trump urging Republicans to use the power of the purse to place a check on Joe Biden’s “weaponized Government that refuses to close the Border, and treats half the country as Enemies of the State.”

The US would require to vote on the 12 individual appropriations bills to get the fiscal house back in order.

The US will see over a $2 trillion deficit for fiscal year 2023 and a $33 trillion national debt.

The interest payments on the debt for 2023 are $644 billion, up 30 percent from 2022, according to The Wall Street Journal.

“Debt payments are getting close to spending on national defense of $692 billion if you can believe it. A third of the current deficit is going to pay interest on money borrowed for previous spending blowouts,” the Journal wrote.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
