    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy does not appear to be taking Rep. Justin Amash's recent tweets about President Trump very seriously, claiming that the Michigan Republican simply "wants to have attention," and questioning his GOP bona fides. Amash tweeted his take on the Muller report on Saturday, "This is exactly what he wants, he wants to have attention," McCarthy said on "Sunday Morning Futures." He went on to express doubt over Amash's Republican leanings in general. "You've got to understand Justin Amash. He's been in Congress quite some time. I think he's asked one question in all the committees that...

    House Democratic leaders are delaying a vote on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism that had been slated to take place on Wednesday, a senior Democratic aide confirmed Tuesday. "We could consider something as early as Thursday," the source told The Hill. House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.D.) told Fox News Tuesday evening they were “still drafting” the resolution, but feels it should be "anti-hate." The measure is expected to be updated to include language condemning anti-Muslim bias. The resolution comes in the wake of Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-Minn.) most recent controversial comments on Israel. "I want to talk about the political...
  • Scarborough Falsely Accuses Kevin McCarthy of Tweeting 'Don't Let Jews Buy the Election'

    Seeking to deflect criticism of Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar for her history of anti-Semitic remarks, Morning Joe swung into whataboutism mode today. Joe Scarborough flagrantly mischaracterized a tweet by GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy prior to the midterms. Scarborough twice claimed that McCarthy had said: "don't let Jews buy the election."McCarthy had said no such thing. McCarthy had tweeted: "We cannot allow Soros, Steyer and Bloomberg to BUY this election. Get out and vote Republican." He never identified the three as Jewish, and it is unlikely that more than a small fraction of Americans would know that they are. In contrast,...

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., tore into House Democrats on Friday for what he alleged was a lack of action against Democratic freshman lawmakers for alleged anti-Semitic remarks they made in recent weeks, comparing the situation to what the country experienced during World War II. Two lawmakers, Reps. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., have come under fire for controversial comments. Tlaib, last month, questioned if Senate Republicans were more loyal to Israel than the United States. Following a report that GOP leaders were planning to introduce a bill that would punish companies that participate in the so-called...

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Thursday blasted Speaker Nancy Pelosi for canceling a Friday session of Congress and giving members a “three-day weekend,” after yet another failed attempt on Capitol Hill to pass bipartisan legislation to re-open the government amid the longest shutdown in U.S. history. Friday will mark the 35th day of the partial government shutdown and the second missed paycheck for more than 800,000 federal workers and contractors working, or furloughed, without pay “People are going into their second week of not getting their paycheck,” McCarthy said on Fox News' “The Daily Briefing” on Thursday. “Speaker Pelosi...

    A looming, partial government shutdown would be “stupid” but might be unavoidable if Democrats refuse to support President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico, the second-ranking House Republican said on Thursday. Even if Republicans assemble enough votes to approve the wall in the House, the plan probably will fail in the Senate, said Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California. The House majority leader noted that Senate Democrats have pledged to block the bill from receiving the necessary 60 votes. McCarthy said on the House floor that he thinks “going into a shutdown is stupid,” but he offered no immediate plan...

    Rep. Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) ascended to the top job in House Republican leadership on Wednesday, while Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.) followed in her father’s footsteps by taking the party’s No. 3 spot. McCarthy prevailed over Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) 159-43, according to the House press gallery, while Cheney was elected by voice vote. Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) is stepping down at the end of his term in January. That opened up the top spot in House Republican leadership, which following the GOP’s defeat in last week’s midterms will be House Minority Leader.

    As Nancy Pelosi wrangles votes in her bid for House speaker, another leadership battle is playing out on the Republican side, where Kevin McCarthy faces a challenge from conservative Freedom Caucus co-founder Jim Jordan to lead the new GOP minority. Republicans lost the House majority in this week’s midterm elections, and conservatives are blaming the GOP establishment and angling for changes. McCarthy burned up the phone lines Thursday shoring up his support. And down ballot, the GOP will add a familiar name to the leadership lineup — Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, a daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney...

    Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, a key member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, announced Wednesday that he intends to run for House minority leader -- setting up a challenge to Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. “I plan to run for minority leader,” Jordan told The Hill, before taking a swipe at how the Republican caucus acted under outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis. "In 2016, the American people elected Republicans to come here and change this town. I think the president is doing just that, but I don't think they see the same intensity from folks in Congress, folks in the...

    American politician Joseph McCarthy, Republican senator from Wisconsin, testifies against the US Army during the Army-McCarthy hearings, Washington, DC, June 9, 1954. (Getty Images) An open letter to Brent Bozell, Tucker Carlson, Sen. John Cornyn, Jerome Corsi, Joseph diGenova, Hugh Hewitt, Sen. Mh itcMcConnell, Bill O’Reilly, President Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and all other conservatives who still decry “McCarthyism”: How about reconsidering the origins of “McCarthyism” and understanding them for what they are—the very seeds of our Marxian destruction and collective shambles? To set the scene, imagine that post-World War II period, when Americans were still trying to...

    Republican House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California claimed the GOP’s chances of retaining the House have changed dramatically, but said the party is still at a “disadvantage” when it comes to fundraising. McCarthy said the amount of absentee ballots and new volunteers rolling in should be an encouraging sign for Republicans, but continued to warn against the Democratic fundraising machine. (RELATED: House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy Warns Republicans Of Massive Democratic Fundraising Machine) “I think it’s changed drastically,” he said on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” “We look at just the absentee ballots.

  • Trump should submit Korean deal to Senate as treaty for ratification: House leader McCarthy

    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Saturday that President Trump should submit any eventual deal with North Korea to the Senate for approval as a treaty, saying lawmakers should have a full say on the matter. The California Republican said President Obama bungled the Iran nuclear deal negotiations by not treating them a treaty but instead as an executive agreement. That made it easy for Mr. Trump to revoke U.S. participation in the deal earlier this year. Mr. McCarthy told MSNBC’s Hugh Hewitt the treaty route is a way of not only making the deal lasting, but also of countering...

    President Trump endorsed GOP California gubernatorial candidate and businessman John Cox on Friday, days after Cox said he was remorseful he did not vote for Trump in the 2016 election because he wasn’t sure if Trump was a conservative. ...snip Cox and Orange County Assemblyman Travis Allen, both Republicans, are seeing to woo enough voters for the June 5 primary in order to gain one of two spots in the November general election. In the event Republicans fail to garner enough support, two Democrats could go head-to-head. Cox has already attracted the support of GOP leadership, including U.S. House Majority...

    On his nationally syndicated radio talk show Wednesday, host Mark Levin interviewed former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy on the topic of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s threat to subpoena and interview President Donald J. Trump, McCarthy suggesting that Mueller should not be permitted to subpoena Trump, nor even ask for an interview. “Well, I don’t think, Mark, that not only should a prosecutor not be permitted to subpoena a president by a court, I don’t think the Justice Department should allow a president to be even asked voluntarily to submit to an interview in the absence of evidence that there’s a...

'The '50s get romanticized so much and depicted as serene so often when there's so much lurking beneath the surface," he says, "whether it's anti-communism and McCarthy, the Cold War, the atomic race or racism.'
