WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) had an unexpected supporter in his bid to be nominated Speaker of the House in the next Congress: conservative firebrand Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

Breitbart reports that Greene told Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast that a challenge to the establishment leader would be “a bad strategy when we’re looking at having a very razor-thin majority, with potentially 219 [seats], we’re talking about one vote […] It’s very, very risky right now to produce a leadership challenge, especially for Speaker of the House, when they are going to open the door and allow Liz Cheney, possibly, to become Speaker.”

Cheney, who represents Wyoming’s at-large congressional district, is an establishment Republican who came out in recent years as one of former President Donald Trump’s most aggressive critics, going so far as to support Democrat candidates over Republicans she considers too Trump-aligned. 

Earlier this year, Cheney lost the Republican primary for reelection to her current seat with 29% of the vote to challenger (and eventual general-election winner) Harriet Hageman’s 66%. A bid for her to become speaker (a post that does not technically require being a sitting House member) is purely speculative at this point; so far she has spoken only of working against a potential Trump presidential nomination in 2024.

But whether a potential “compromise” speaker would be Cheney or someone else, Greene said, “there are Republicans in our conference right now that would make a deal with the Democrats and cross over. We’ve already seen the former Republican vice president of the United States’ daughter do it.”

Greene’s stance did not sit well with Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who quipped that “whatever Kevin has promised Marjorie Taylor Greene, I guarantee you this — at the first opportunity, he will zap her faster than you can say Jewish space laser,” a reference to a bizarre Facebook post Greene made in 2018 and has been recurrently mocked for since. (Gaetz later called coverage of his remarks “bulls***” and insisted he admires Greene).

Greene and Gaetz are both ardent supporters of Trump. The former president endorsed McCarthy for Speaker despite conservative reservations, which McCarthy reportedly allayed with assurances such as that Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) could chair the House Judiciary Committee, and that Greene could gain back the committee assignments taken from her last year in retaliation for controversial remarks.

A large childcare chain in the United States just fired a faithful Christian caretaker for refusing to read LGBT propaganda to children.

As reported on LifeSiteNews, Bright Horizons Children’s Center in California terminated the contract of Nelli Parisenkova for not reading LGBT-themed books to children as young as 1 year-old.  

Parisenkova, a devout Christian who worked for the company for four years, requested to not read the books because they violated her deeply held religious beliefs.

Instead of tolerating Nelli’s Christian faith, Bright Horizons demanded she 'celebrate diversity' or leave. After refusing to comply with this unjust ultimatum, Parisenkova’s boss expelled her from the building, which forced her to walk 20 minutes in 96-degree heat to the bus stop where she had to wait another 45 minutes.

Parisenkova is now suing Bright Horizons Children’s Center for violating her religious freedom, and she needs your help to raise public awareness about this assault on her human rights.

Sign this petition today to tell Nelli Parisenkova that you stand with her and her Christian faith against the LGBT agenda being pushed by Bright Horizon’s Children’s Center.

Bright Horizons thinks it can bully devout Christians like Nelli into submitting to their leftist ideology. Do not let them get away with it! We all must take a stand to ensure these attacks on our shared Christian faith come to an end. Here are the plain and simple facts:

  • No child should be brainwashed to believe that marriage is between two men or two women.
  • No child should be told that boys can become girls, or that girls can become boys.
  • No child should be indoctrinated with the erroneous belief there are more than two genders, or that people can choose their gender identity.

This is not education. This is propaganda.

Nelli Parisenkova was RIGHT to protect children from LGBT indoctrination and she was RIGHT to invoke her Christian faith in doing so.

SIGN THIS PETITION NOW to tell her she is not alone in this fight!

Ineffective leadership from McCarthy and his Senate counterpart, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has been one of the many things conservatives argue is to blame for the GOP’s underwhelming performance in last week’s midterm elections, in which the party narrowly retook the House and failed to win the Senate, despite widespread discontent with President Joe Biden’s job performance.

Numerous conservatives and Republicans have, at a minimum, called for party leadership votes to be delayed, and for McCarthy and McConnell to be replaced. Yet, in a disheartening development for grassroots conservatives, the House Republican conference nominated McCarthy for Speaker, with 188 votes versus just 31 for Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ).

McCarthy next needs to secure 218 votes from the full House in January to become its next Speaker.
