Speaker Mike Johnson continues to show why Democrats want him in charge of the House of Representatives.

He’s selling out conservatives at an alarming rate.

And Mike Johnson said three words that will leave you red with rage.

Speaker Johnson disappoints Pro-Lifers

The fallout from House Speaker Mike Johnson’s (RINO-LA) disastrous interview with POLITICO continues to be felt across the Republican Party.

Johnson enraged conservatives by saying he supports funding Special Counsel Jack Smith’s witch hunts against former President Donald Trump.

Now he stabbed Pro-Lifers in the back.

“No, I don’t,” Johnson said in response to a question about if he would pass a national Pro-Life law if Republicans won both chambers of Congress and Donald Trump recaptured the White House. 

Johnson then tried to hide behind Donald Trump’s position that abortion was up to the states to regulate.

“President Trump said this is in the states’ purview now. After the Dobbs decision, I think that’s where it is. Look, I am a lifelong pro-lifer. I’m a product of a teen pregnancy,” Johnson began.

But it was Mike Johnson – and not Donald Trump – who was a co-sponsor of the Life at Conception Act, which established a federal right to personhood for babies in the womb.

Johnson’s alarming reversals

Johnson voted against aid to Ukraine and allowing illegal warrantless wiretapping.

But after becoming Speaker, he rammed President Joe Biden’s $61 billion Ukraine slush fund and FISA reauthorization, which allowed Biden to spy on Trump and his supporters without obtaining a warrant – through Congress.

Johnson is now abandoning his Pro-Life principles.

Speaker Johnson makes excuses

Johnson told POLITICO that since he’s now Speaker of the House he doesn’t have any core beliefs.

“And so I believe in the sanctity of human life. It’s also an important article of faith for me. But I have 434 colleagues here. All of us have our own, philosophical principles that we live by, but you have to have a political consensus,” Johnson stated.

Johnson then outrageously claimed it was the fault of Pro-Life activists that there wasn’t a federal law protecting unborn babies since they failed to establish a culture of life in America.

“[Andrew] Breitbart said, politics is downstream from culture. He’s right. Before you can have political consensus on a very contentious issue like this, you have to have cultural consensus,” Johnson continued.

“And I think there’s a lot of work to do to build a culture of life and educate people on the importance of that and to really live up to the principles of our nation’s birth certificate, which is the declaration that ‘all men are created equal,’” Johnson added.

Like every other establishment Republican, Johnson told conservatives they had to wait until some distant day in the future to get their way.

Johnson pulls a John McCain

Yet no matter how many elections Republicans win, “Swamp” RINOs never seem to deliver on their promises.

When Donald Trump won the election in 2016 on a promise to repeal Obamacare, the late U.S. Senator John McCain – who spent six years campaigning on a promise to eradicate Obamacare – executed an 11th-hour double cross to side with Democrats and kill the repeal bill.

This time, Johnson is being more upfront about how he plans to stab Pro-Lifers in the back.

“Do you anticipate putting forward any legislation on abortion before the election?” POLITICO asked.

“No,” Johnson replied.

Now conservatives are wondering what the point of a GOP majority is if Mike Johnson agrees with Joe Biden on spending, FISA, Ukraine, and abortion.
