Just thinking.....after Paul Ryan leaves, if Kevin McCarthy gets his job we'll officially be back in the McCarthy era. So far it's unofficial. 🙂

Using the same rationale, did none of the headlines below NOT HAPPEN just because they were reported in a supermarket tabloid.

Kevin McCarthy on Leftist ‘Abolish ICE’ Push: Democrats Now ‘The New Socialist Democratic Party’

208 Views
Message 16 of 16

Democrats have abandoned the center of American politics, ceding that ground to Republicans, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM Patriot 125. McCarthy said he no longer refers to them as the Democratic Party, but as the “The New Socialist Democratic Party.”

 

McCarthy’s comments, laying out the leftward lurch of the Democratic Party, come in the wake of a historic vote this week on the floor of the House of Representatives in which only 18 Democrats voted in support of a measure that admonishes efforts to “Abolish ICE” and destroy the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency that handles interior immigration enforcement.

 

“I’ve never seen anything like this on the floor of the House,” McCarthy said. “What the resolution simply does is it honors all those who work for ICE and it simply states what they do: One, stopping the million pounds of drugs, stopping those who become human traffickers—those people who are preying on our children, two thousand of those they’ve been able to stop. And saving like 900 kids who have been put into human trafficking. And it honors the lives of those six who have been killed in the line of duty, made the ultimate sacrifice in their job. One was even murdered from a cartel in Mexico. And it has one provision in there where it denounces any talk about abolishing ICE.”

 

On the floor of the House, Democrats split three separate ways on the resolution which was offered by Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA) and championed by McCarthy. Eighteen voted for it, 34 voted against it, and 133 Democrats voted “present”—effectively ensuring the measure’s passage because the procedure through which it was brought to the floor, a “suspension calendar,” requires two-thirds of the members voting one way or another on the resolution to support it for it to pass. Nonetheless, the fact that 167 Democrats in total either voted against supporting ICE—thereby voting to abolish ICE—or voted present, and thereby casting their lot with those in opposition, is astonishing when it comes to Congress standing with a federal law enforcement agency.

 

“When you come to Congress, think about all the debates,” McCarthy continued on Breitbart News Saturday. “When you go and see somebody running for Congress, you ask them different positions. Has anybody ever asked somebody when they want to come to Congress, when you go to Congress make a big argument on the floor and then make sure you vote ‘present.’ Not yes or no, but vote present? That’s what 133 of the Democrats did, and their leadership. I don’t really refer to it as the Democratic Party anymore. This has become the New Socialist Democratic Party.

 

They wanted to abolish ICE. They put a bill in to do that and had co-sponsors. When I had this bill coming up supporting ICE, I said I would put your bill up too—they said ‘oh, we’ll vote no.’ The profiles in courage have left. Eighteen of them voted yes, 34 of them voted no, and 133 of them voted present. The most ironic part of that, by them voting present—because it was on a suspension calendar it has a two-thirds threshold to pass—it passed and moved forward because they couldn’t even take a position. That’s what’s happening with this new Socialist Party that are the Democrats.”

 

McCarthy, when informed that the House Democrats’ radical leftist counterpart Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) intended to block Senate consideration of the House-passed pro-ICE resolution, expressed frustration with the leftists doing whatever they can to undermine federal immigration law enforcement officials. He pointed to recent polling, too, that shows the vast overwhelming majority of Americans stand with ICE and do not support abolishing the federal agency as do leftists taking over the Democratic Party.

 

“Why are they going to block it?” McCarthy asked. “But on a very honest note, and this is the point I made in my speech on the floor, what do you say to all those women and men who work for ICE to protect us? What does it say when you have 133 Democrats vote present on that while you have a number of Socialist Democrats who say they want to abolish ICE? That’s not where America is at. You just saw that recent poll—a majority of Americans, Democrats, Independents, Republicans, and others, believe you need to keep it [ICE].”
