Every time I see Ohio’s Jim Jordan on cable news, I sit up straight and pay attention. Jordan is fierce, fearless, well-informed, purpose-driven, and conservative. He might actually work to “Lock Her Up” and turn the United States to a level system of justice.

So naturally, outgoing Speaker Paul Ryan endorsed him. Uh, no.

Ryan has thrown his support behind the cautious Californian Kevin McCarthy, a play-along-to-get-along politician who is a part of the Republican establishment. Fortunately, there is a mini-movement to toss McCarthy and install Jordan.

If that were to happen, the GOP would certainly fire up its base – and might be able to correct mistakes – like the $1.3 trillion dollar Omnibus Bill, and start working to stop future blue waves that are emanating from our big cities.

President Trump needs Jordan, but not nearly as much as the conservative movement does.

With President Trump in office, the time is now to go big!

If ever there was a time to get conservative agenda items passed, this should be it. President Trump has pushed for right-wing legislation such as protecting our southern border with a wall, and other measures. He is pro-life and would support new legislation that might get that issue back to the Supreme Court – and who knows what might happen with the current justices?

With Paul Ryan leading the House and Mitch McConnell running the Senate, we’ve gotten three things done but only two of them are good:

The tax relief bill passed – but we still need commensurate spending cuts.
• The appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court is helping stop left-wing activists in black robes.
• The 2,232-page Omnibus bill that funded the military, but is exploding the debt.

Kevin McCarthy may think it’s “his turn” to be speaker, but that’s no way to run a circus – and that’s kind of what Congress is. There are too many big fish to fry to leave the House to the next swamp creature in line.

Here’s what the new speaker will have on his plate.

For starters, he should take a look at that Omnibus bill and find ways to cut it back. If it takes new legislation, so be it. Once that’s done, he should go agency-by-agency and line-by-line through the federal budget looking for places to cut back. Entitlements must be on the table. Welfare must be reformed as well. Our national debt is our biggest threat, and, to use the Left’s favorite word, is unsustainable over the long haul.

He should propose and then work to pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform – conservative style. That means building the wall, and moving back to a merit-based, quota system. This is our country, and we should be able to make logical decisions on how many immigrants we need, what skills they should have, and where they come from.

He should work to re-establish the lawmaking powers of the Legislative Branch – which could be done simply be declaring that the House will make laws and coordinate with the Senate, and that judges that attempt to legislate from the bench will be the subject of impeachment proceedings.

He must find a way to stem the tide of America’s big cities all becoming rubber stamps for the Left in elections. He’ll need to be forceful in spreading the Republican Party’s message of unity rather than diversity – and make no bones about the fact that Democrats have held many communities back.

That’s just for starts.

We need to restore the American traditional family, make sure we still have jobs in the age of technology & robots, find a way to prevent Google and Facebook from running the world, and take back Congress’ singular ability to declare war. As for Lock Her Up, it’s about time that the Clintons face equal justice the same way the rest of us do.

Does anyone think Kevin McCarthy is up the task?

I’m sure he isn’t. I’m surer that McCarthy is the wrong choice than I’m sure Jordan is the right one. But Jordan is forceful, conservative, motivational, and in-tune with the rank-and-file in flyover country. Those are likely the very reasons he will not be chosen.

Kevin McCarthy represents business-as-usual in the land of the Swamp. A Jim Jordan speakership at least would prove a real change at the top in the House and perhaps a path to implementing the conservative ideas that this country so desperately needs.

Of course, it could be worse than Kevin McCarthy. The media tells us we’re in for a Blue Wave that might put Nancy Pelosi back in as speaker. That would be tragic – but only slightly more so than if we put a weak establishment Republican in charge when a true, firebrand conservative is available.
