Was it only a month ago that a handful of Republicans blew up the leadership structure and plunged us into a couple weeks of pointless chaos?
The catalyst was weird. First there was the Republican rejection of a budget that would have reduced spending and improved security at the border.
Just want to reiterate that Republicans gave up an 8% spending cut and border funding in the CR to have a two week self-immolation.

When that failed, McCarthy put forward a CR. That CR got him bounced out of leadership by Matt Gaetz… and then almost half the time gained in that CR that would have been used for hammering out a budget was wasted in endless jockeying for leadership.
Now? Time’s almost up and something had to be done.
The solution is another CR – but with a twist.
Speaker Johnston explains the rationale behind setting up this particular CR in the way he did.
He was balancing competing issues… a caucus impatient for budget cuts on one side and the Uniparty eagerly wanting an excuse to pass an omnibus on the other.
The two-step CR achieves the critical goal of avoiding a disastrous Christmas omnibus spending package.

With the clock ticking, the Democrats would love nothing better than an opportunity to blame another shutdown on the Republicans.
(Who or what was ACTUALLY responsible is irrelevant to their blame games — as we all saw in the shutdown just before Pelosi took back the gavel.)
The end game is a return to regular order and a properly debated budget.
Are you down with that?
Dear young Christian male, this book you’re about to read is meant to challenge you to your very core. Its intent is not to make you feel warm and fuzzy. Some of the chapters will upset you greatly, especially if you’re a dandy who was raised with kid gloves by a helicopter mommy.
That said, in addition to the holy introspection contained herein, this book will also shoot adrenaline into your soul. It’ll push you to be a Godly risk taker and earth shaker. A veritable Rebel With A Cause just like the Captain of Our Salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you want a feel-good book that tickles your ears and morphs you into a little Christian popinjay, this tome ain’t for you. You should put this book down and walk away from it immediately. However, if, young man, if … your motto is to give God your utmost for His highest, and you wanna live a life worthy of Christ’s death, then this book will be grist for your mill.
