Mike Johnson is new House Speaker, a big win for conservatives


Office of Rep. Mike Johnson


Congressman Mike Johnson has been elected as the new House Speaker to replace the vacated Kevin McCarthy.


This is great for conservatives. This win puts one of our own in that Speaker's chair. Johnson is a staunch, pro-life, limited government, constitutionalist, and that's just for starters.


Also, as Fox News notes:

The Louisiana Republican — who would be the second Pelican State speaker nominee after the failed bid from House Majority Leader Steve Scalise — previously served one term as the influential Republican Study Committee chairman.
Johnson is an ally of former President Donald Trump and defended him during the Democrat-led House impeachment hearings…
On several other issues, Johnson has aligned with the most conservative lawmakers in the caucus.
Last month, he voted against H.R. 5692, the Ukraine Security Assistance and Oversight Supplemental Appropriations Act, which passed. The bill appropriates federal dollars to assist Ukraine's military in its defense against Russia and establishes an inspector general's office to oversee aid.
Additionally, he opposed the temporary spending measure, known as a Continuing Resolution (CR), aligning with 90 other House Republicans, at the Sept. 30 deadline. He also supported measures to bolster border security within the CR, which aimed to restrict eligibility for asylum seekers...
In June, Johnson voted in favor of a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Joe Biden.
Prior to joining Congress, Johnson worked as a lawyer and was the senior spokesperson for the conservative Christian legal advocacy group Alliance Defending Freedom.

Johnson has also been very outspoken on how the Biden administration has weaponized the FBI to censor Americans' free speech.

It took a minute, but we got there - we put a conservative in the Speaker's chair!


ForAmerica congratulates Mike Johnson.


Now let's get to work!
