Friday Follies or For Real? Pick Up Your Phone – Call House Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 – Donald J. Trump for New Speaker of the House – Report, Insights, Commentary; plus MHVille Markets Update


If you don’t already know, you can find your representative in 2023 by using the federal look up tool at this link here. You can call your Congressional Representative via the House switchboard number at (202) 224-3121. Why do those facts matter? It may be a joke, or it may have been a trial balloon. If you haven’t already heard or read all about it, Newsmax reported on Thursday evening that deposed President Donald J. Trump posted on his Truth Social account an image of himself as the next Speaker of the House. With 11 votes thus far and no joy for last year’s House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy failing to yield the necessary votes among Republicans for him to take the speaker’s gavel in the new Congress, several pro-Trump voices have jumped on the bandwagon to call from Donald John Trump to be the next Speaker of the House, as the following report illustrates. Reasons to pick up the phone or otherwise contact your new/returning Congressional representative on this issue will follow and today’s report will conclude with the Daily Business News on MHProNews MHVille equities markets updates.

WNDnewscenterLogoQuote‘Why not Trump?’ for House speaker

Exclusive: Joseph Farah spotlights Steve Bannon’s 100-day plan for ex-president taking the gavel

By Joseph Farah Published January 5, 2023 at 7:45pm

He said it – finally.

Steve Bannon said it. It was more than a question. It was a PLEA!

Regarding the failure to elect a House speaker, Bannon said: “Why not Trump? Why not Trump?”

“You have to get someone in the room for what the big issues are – and we know what the big issues are,” said Bannon. “It’s the investigations. We have to stop the madness. We have to stop the insanity of the global elites who run this country. It must be stopped, and it must be stopped now. If it isn’t stopped now, it’s over. We’re not going to be the constitutional republic that we were bequeathed.

“I would like to get Mark Levin and all the constitutional republicans to join us in this cause. Because you’re not going to have the constitutional republic if they still have ability to spend us into oblivion while they take all of the value and the they take all of the wealth. And that’s the system we have. … So my vote now is ‘why not Trump?’ If you need a nasty piece of work in the room negotiating, give me the nastiest. And Trump is a beast. Why not Trump? Why not Trump? Why not? Why not?”

This is where it all started: me asking the question on Jan. 3, 2021, and Steve Bannon backing me up a few days later. I couldn’t let go of the idea. Other people picked it up.

Then Rep. Matt Gaetz put his name into the mix Thursday, voting for Trump for speaker on the seven round of balloting. Later Gaetz nominated Trump for speaker, prior to the 11th roll call vote.

It was like magic when he dropped it.

It sounded as good as it originally sounded to me in 2021.

How does it work?

Any American can serve as speaker of the House. You don’t have to be a member of the body.

Donald J. Trump has shown little interest in the job. But he doesn’t need a job. He must be persuaded. The country needs him. He will answer the call of duty.

“This is why I’m excited about this,” says Bannon. “You want him in the room negotiating the deals.”

This is not a job, for Trump. It’s one that requires his attention for 100 days or less. That’s all.

Will he do it? Yes, if he’s asked. If he has the people’s support. He cannot say no to the American people. He’ll do it if he’s needed. And boy is he needed.

It can be done – Donald Trump will answer the bell.

Trump is listening. He’s weighing the options. Obviously, he’s not in it to lose. He wants to see a path to victory.

Will you give it to him, America?

Is he still the greatest president whoever served this country? Do we need him now? Will anyone else do?

Part II. Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary

As Newsmax reported, “Former President Donald Trump on Thursday afternoon posted a photo of himself in the House speaker’s chair after he was nominated by Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., and received two votes.

The photo posted on Trump’s Truth Social network is digitally altered to show Trump in the House speaker’s chair with President Joe Biden delivering a State of the Union address. Vice President Kamala Harris is seated behind Biden alongside Trump.

But rather than the typical serious look the speaker typically gives during the president’s speech, Trump is sticking out his tongue and is holding his hands on his stomach.” That post is shown below along with screen captures of several responses in that thread.”

The embedded version of that post looks like this.  You can grab the scroll bar on the right to move the image down or back up again.


Screen captures from select Truth Social media posts responding to the Real Donald J. Trump post boosting him for Speaker of the House appear as follows.


Editorially speaking, this writer for MHProNews went on the record with this outcome in mind from the 2022 midterms months ago.

2 paths to a ‘President Trump’ BEFORE 2024

Due to redistricting or the 2022 election, your congressional representative may have changed, as did ours. The official Congressional representative look up tool is found at this link here. You can call your Congressional rep via the Capitol switchboard number at (202) 224-3121, or via your elected representative’s website contact page.  Or sit on your hands, don’t ask for Trump as the Speaker of the House, and claim the God-awful status quo. Your choice. Vote now.


Update at 11:52 AM. Despite several mainstream reports about a ‘deal’ to make Kevin McCarthy Speaker, McCarthy himself now denies that has been accomplished.  Talk radio callers are on this topic of Trump for Speaker.

We changed our planned report for MHProNews for today due to this development in the House Speaker’s race. Retweet or share via social media all you want to, but the time to let your elected representative in the U.S. House know is this morning, or as early as possible this afternoon.  Find your rep at this link here.  Call the Switchboard at (202) 224-3121.  ##
