The House of Representatives has finally elected a new Speaker.

Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) has won the job.

“With 220 votes, Johnson is elected speaker,” NBC News reports.

Per NBC News:

Rep. Mike Johnson, R-La., the fourth Republican to be nominated, was elected speaker today.

House Republicans chose Johnson, a low-ranking member of the GOP leadership team, as the speaker-designate Tuesday night. He is the party’s fourth nominee for the job since Kevin McCarthy was ousted as speaker three weeks ago.

On Tuesday morning, Republicans selected Rep. Tom Emmer, R-Minn., as their nominee for speaker only to see him drop out that afternoon, unable to get the 217 votes needed to win the speaker’s gavel in the full House.

After roughly three weeks, the House of Representatives once again has a Speaker.

Before the House Floor vote, Donald Trump voiced his support for Johnson.


“Congratulations to Congressional Republicans! Yesterday was a big and very important day. It gave us a quick and easy way forward with 5 candidates who are beyond reproach, and represent the absolute best there is in the Republican Party. Even the Fake News Media is impressed with what took place yesterday and, more importantly, with the Candidates themselves. Congratulations to Reps. Byron Donalds (Florida), Charles J. “Chuck” Fleischmann (Tennessee), Mark Green (Tennessee), & Roger Williams (Texas), & the ultimate winner of yesterday’s vote, by a significant margin, Mike Johnson (Louisiana),” Trump wrote on Truth Social.

“I am not going to make an Endorsement in this race, because I COULD NEVER GO AGAINST ANY OF THESE FINE AND VERY TALENTED MEN, all of whom have supported me, in both mind and spirit, from the very beginning of our GREAT 2016 Victory. In 2024, we will have an even bigger, & more important, WIN! My strong SUGGESTION is to go with the leading candidate, Mike Johnson, & GET IT DONE, FAST! LOVE, DJT.”

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) had these remarks about Johnson.

That’s a positive sign!

Johnson got a ‘F’ on his ‘Republicans for Ukraine’ report card.

Another positive!

We hope Johnson continues flunking his Ukraine course.

Our friends at WLTReport shared this info about House Speaker Mike Johnson:


But if you don’t follow D.C. politics all day long, you may not know much about him.

The good news?

The more you see, the more you’re really going to like him!

So allow me to introduce to you Rep. Mike Johnson.

Who is he?

Well, RINO honk Bill Kristol (the less funny Billy Crystal) gives him an “F” on Ukraine.

Which as DC Draino points out is an A+ in our book (meaning he has historically not been in favor of funding Ukraine):

Bravo sir!

That is priority #1, keep that up!



Fund the people of Maui!

Fund the homeless in our Country!

Fix America First!

We also know this about him….reportedly he called for a prayer session:

We also know he famously went after prior Speaker Nancy Pelosi for ripping up President Trump’s SOTU speech.

Watch this old clip:

And here:

Simon also gives a great recap of who Mike Johnson is:

BREAKING: Rep. Mike Johnson (@RepMikeJohnson) of Louisiana has the votes needed to become Speaker. He is expected to be elected Speaker shortly.

A little bit about him

1- He is an attorney with a focus on Constitutional law who worked with religious groups

2- He worked as a college professor and conservative talk show host

3- He served in the Louisiana House from 2015 and 2017

4- He was elected to represent Louisiana’s 4th District in 2016


5- He is the Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference

6- Former Chair of the Republican Study Committee Conference

7- Served on Trump’s first Senate impeachment trial defense team

8- Drafted House GOP legal brief supporting Texas suit

9- Objected to certification of Biden’s election results

10- He sponsored more bills that passed than the average Republican House member

11- He voted to raise the debt ceiling but not to avoid a government shutdown

12- He’s now asking for a possible continuing resolution to keep the government open.

13- He also has broad GOP support on the House

14- He is not, however, very good at fundraising.

On the downside?

My friend Pepe Deluxe found this old post from Rep. Johnson from 2022:

My take?

I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt, first because that is old and a lot of people were hoodwinked early on by the Ukrainian “actor”.

But also because his record on Ukraine since then looks pretty good.

So Memo to Speaker Johnson: we got you in, don’t mess it up!


We’ll vacate your chair too if you start sending our hard-earned tax dollars over to those freaks!
