I’m about to share a secret that will rock the core of American politics. A conspiracy, meticulously woven into the fabric of our governance by none other than U.S. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). McCarthy’s reign of deceit isn’t just conjecture—it’s a hard-hitting reality.
In our nation’s capital, where the veins of power pulse with deals and promises, McCarthy is seen as a master manipulator, a broker of compromise, often selling out principles on the altar of convenience. This apparent act of political maneuvering, however, has left many conservatives feeling duped. It’s a compelling and disturbing narrative—one that we need to unmask.
The Failed Promise
Let’s recall the shaky beginnings.
It took McCarthy a staggering fifteen rounds of voting to finally secure the role of House Speaker. His ascent to the pinnacle of political power was a spectacle of his political agility and the steadfast support of conservative stalwarts such as U.S. Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and President Donald Trump.
However, his reign as House Speaker has proved just as disheartening as many conservatives anticipated. His pledges made to the Freedom Caucus to gain their support now feel like hollow echoes in the hallowed halls of Congress.
Remember the vow he made to schedule a vote on congressional term limits?
Well, no such vote has seen the light of day, even though a staggering 83% of the American populace backs the idea.
Are we to believe that seasoned political players like McCarthy and U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) know better than the overwhelming majority of Americans?
Or are they playing their own game, oblivious to the desires of the very people who placed them in their seats of power?
The Deceptive Deal
The promise-breaking didn’t stop there.
McCarthy’s recent deal over the debt ceiling with President Joe Biden—a deal many conservatives had high hopes for—was a slap in the face for those who envisioned a staunch stand against extravagant spending, a limit on government overreach, and a return to fiscal sanity.
However, the agreement announced over the weekend was, in fact, a staggering victory for the Democrats.
A vivid example is the nearly complete retention of the additional 87,000 IRS agents funded by the preposterously named Inflation Reduction Act. As U.S. Congressman Dan Bishop (R-NC) bitterly pointed out, a mere $1.9 billion will be cut from the $80 billion appropriated for IRS expansion.
He grimly jested, “So there will be 85,260 more IRS agents rather than 87,000 to eat you alive. Big win.” This pitifully minuscule 2% cut certainly won’t halt the relentless targeting of middle-class Americans.
But let’s not just take my word for it. Listen to the voices rising from our elected officials. U.S. Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO), for instance, has been very vocal about her disappointment with McCarthy’s ‘deal.’ She berated, “Our base didn’t volunteer, door knock and fight so hard to get us the majority for this kind of compromise deal with Joe Biden. Our voters deserve better than this.”

In the same vein, former Trump strategist Steve Bannon deemed the deal a “total surrender” and “total and complete sellout.” David Stockman, former Director of the Office of Management and Budget in the Reagan administration, slammed the deal as a “screaming disgrace,” adding to the growing outcry against this flawed arrangement.
The Grim Future
The worst part?
This so-called deal has ensured an addition of a staggering $4 to $5 trillion to the national debt before the next ceiling is even reached. Even the House Speaker’s claim that the deal enjoys the support of 95% of the Republican House members only serves to emphasize the stark disconnect between GOP leadership and the base of their party.
McCarthy’s deal with Biden seems like an elaborate masquerade—a startling display of political subterfuge that keeps Biden’s socialist “Green energy” priorities intact, adds mammoth amounts to the debt, and does little to curtail the expansion of the IRS.
As Russ Vought, former Trump Office of Management and Budget Director, aptly noted, the deal “hands away all leverage” to President Biden.
This grim capitulation cannot stand.
It is an affront to the hardworking volunteers and small donors who tirelessly worked to elect Republicans to Congress.
The truly courageous fighters in Congress need to rise up and oppose this insidious manipulation.
It’s time to pull back the curtain on McCarthy’s dubious dealings and let the light of truth shine through.
The battle lines have been drawn.
The fight begins now.
