The political show is over: in the United States, the speaker of the House of Representatives was elected on the 15th attempt

Record-breaking in the latest stories It took US legislators the number of attempts it took to elect the Speaker of the House of Representatives. According to the results of the 15th vote, Kevin McCarthy, who had previously been the leader of the Republican minority, was elected speaker of the House.


The internal election of the Speaker of the House of Representatives has turned into a real political marathon. And, given the fact that the head of the chamber was exactly the person who, according to all forecasts, should have become such, it all looks like another American political show to attract attention - from the same series as the final election results in the layout of 50,1 .49,9% against XNUMX% of votes cast for candidates. For what? To preserve the illusion of democracy, to which the American system, as it became clear, has no real relationship, the entire system of political power has long been usurped, in fact, by one force.

Kevin McCarthy has become the 55th Speaker of the House of Representatives, succeeding Nancy Pelosi of the US Democratic Party. In the American hierarchy system, the Speaker of the House of Representatives is the third person in the state after the President and Vice President. Thus, the top trio in the US is now "diluted" with one Republican.

Recall that McCarthy advocated an audit of military assistance provided to Ukraine. But that was before his election. What his rhetoric will be like now will be shown by the first meetings of the chamber, which has chosen a speaker from the 15th attempt.

      Was it difficult for the author to dig the history of the US elections?
      during the Civil War (1861-1865) in 1859 - then it took 44 votesto approve the candidacy of William PENNINGTON.
      Nathaniel BANKI became the record holder in the number of votes in the history of the US Congress, members of the House of Representatives agreed to his candidacy for the post of speaker only from the 133th time.

    " The show goes on " ,..........................
    In general, the United States is a country of continuous show. The truth is often high-quality, but still a show!

    I guess he'll happily forget about this audit. There has never been a case of US foreign policy changing with a change of president, let alone a third party in the hierarchy.

    Well, this American parliament is obviously weak. Not like the Ukrainian Rada. For 4 days of debate, they never had a fight. Boring...

        Yes, what a weapon. There, most of them are such ancient mummies, once you hit it hard, it will fall apart.

    The director was finally elected in the US Congress. I expected that they would still roam. One of Kevin McCarthy's points was that he would not allow being a "remote" congressman. .On duty in Congress will vote. Why work if you can get the same money without working and not deny yourself anything.

      You can sit in your state, on a yacht, villa, all sorts of shows and receive a congressman's not frail salary.
      What about the meaning? There, 95% will make a hospital ward on their yacht and will be treated in it all year round.

    Until they have been elected or EX, you can say and demand anything from them. But when at the post you have to do what they say, otherwise they will quickly replace you.

    Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., Obama, Trump, Biden. Everything flows, everything changes, but regardless of who the US leadership is (Democrats or Republicans), their foreign policy remains just as Russophobic.

    Well, finally, she gave birth, now we know who will cut the US budget in the next 4 years.
    It is necessary to raise the question at the UN about the imposition of sanctions against the US Democratic Party because of the opposition to democracy and corruption, sorry for lobbying.
    DOES NOT RIDE, BUT this will only be the beginning, so to speak, the first click on the nose. It is necessary to respond to unfounded accusations against Russia in a mirror image, and with specific facts.

      If the facts do not fit into the political agenda, then so much the worse for the facts. Eat them yourself.
      There is a war in the hot phase. All "red-brown-crimson lines" (mostly imaginary) have long been crossed. In war, you either defeat the enemy or he defeats you. The main thing is to understand what this victory looks like, otherwise woe to the vanquished.

    Yes, there will be no audit, no reduction in assistance to the country 404. Before his election, he was talking nonsense for the purposes of populism. And now the arms lobby will quickly explain to him what’s what. Considering that gunsmiths traditionally support the Republican Party, McCarthy is not here dances. His party members will demolish him if the flow of finances from gunsmiths stops
