Why John Boehner’s Surrender On DHS Funding Is The Beginning Of The End Of His Speakership

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal.   It’s high time for Johnny to go! As largely expected, House Speaker John Boehner has surrendered on trying to defund President Obama’s executive amnesty through DHS. The Hill reports that Speaker Boehner is planning a vote today to pass a “clean” DHS bill that keeps President Obama’s executive amnesty intact. Much like the bill to temporarily fund DHS, Speaker Boehner will likely be forced to rely on Democrat votes to pass a clean bill. Boehner’s allies will also likely use House Rule 22, which would make a “clean” DHS bill a “privileged […]

Breaking News: Boehner To Cave, Expected To Allow Vote On Clean DHS Bill

  Hat/Tip to Drudge Report and CNN. Well, we’ve been expecting Boehner’s spine to turn to jelly, and frankly it’s surprising that it’s lasted this long. House Speaker John Boehner is expected to move soon — as early as Wednesday — to bring up the clean bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security for a vote on the House floor, according to two House GOP sources familiar with leadership discussions. A clean bill to fully fund the Department through the end of the fiscal year is what Democrats have been demanding, and conservatives have been fighting against. The plan […]

Video: Donald Trump Has Harsh Words for Mitt Romney And Jeb Bush at CPAC… Crowd Cheers

Hat/Tip to the Conservative Tribune. Donald Trump is no politician. He is a blunt, say it like it is businessman and that is a huge part of his appeal. His bluntness was on display at CPAC this year, as well. The last week has been a bit rough for Jeb Bush. The former governor of Florida attended the Conservative Political Action Conference with high hopes for a 2016 presidential run, but he has been hit with a harsh dose of reality. Several prominent conservatives took time in their CPAC speeches to specifically criticize the brother of George W. Bush, and […]

GOP In Full Retreat? Boehner And McConnell Raise The White Flag On Obama’s Executive Amnesty

Hat/Tip to S.A. Miller at The Washington Times. What was it Speaker Boehner said about Obama’s Illegal Actions on Executive Amnesty, again? Oh, yeah: “The House will soon take action aimed at stopping the president’s unilateral action when it comes to immigration,” Boehner said at his press briefing today. “Republicans are in agreement that this is a gravely serious matter.” “The president’s unilateral actions were an affront to the rule of law and our system of government,” Boehner said. “The American people don’t support it and as their representatives we cannot let it stand.” “I said we’d fight it tooth […]

Emails Obtained Show Then Governor Jeb Bush Favored A Near Open Border Policy

Hat/Tip to Paige St. John at The Los Angeles Times. We need to keep open our country to people fleeing repression. We need to deal with the millions that are here illegally. … It should be done without … hatred and fear.  Those are then Florida Governor, Jeb Bush in an email to a constituent on the issue of his desire to offer drivers licenses to illegal aliens here in the United States, specifically of course, in Florida. Luckily, the measure never passed. The onslaught by email began when Florida’s Republican governor came out in support of a measure to […]

Stand Up Comedy, Complete Denial, Or Just Your Normal, Average Lying Politician?

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. He’s not “establishment” Even though he’s punishing all GOP House members who voted against him, or who don’t tow the party line He’s a Conservative Even though he pushed the Cromnibus through and has done NOTHING to defund ObamaCare He’s not spineless Even though he won’t stand up to Obama and is afraid to shut down the government to defund ObamaCare So there you have it, he’s a tough-as-nails Conservative who isn’t afraid of Obama and the Democrats, pays no attention to public opinion polls and isn’t afraid to shut down the government. Wait, what? Okay, […]

Boehner Re-Elected Speaker Despite 25 Republicans Voting Against Him: Boehner Immediately Seeks Revenge

Hat/Tip to CNSNews.com, Mark Levin, Politico and The Washington Post. Despite the fact that over two dozen House Republicans voted present or for someone else, John Boehner retained his Speakership today. The House has re-elected John Boehner to be speaker in the new Republican-led Congress, despite opposition by tea party lawmakers that underscored party divisions. The Ohio Republican garnered the votes of 216 GOP lawmakers as Congress convened Tuesday. That was enough for him to win a third two-year term leading the House. But in an embarrassing slap, 25 Republicans voted for other candidates or voted present. They consider Boehner to be too […]

More GOP House Members Rebelling Against Boehner As Speaker

Hat/Tip to Matthew Boyle at Breitbart. Does this mean Boehner’s days as Obama’s GOP errand boy are numbered? We can only hope so. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) issued a statement on Saturday detailing why he’s going to vote against House Speaker John Boehner’s re-election on Tuesday. Massie, who’s entering his second term as a member from Kentucky, now becomes the second Republican House member announcing the coming rebellion against Boehner. Massie joins Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) in the fight for fresh leadership, and in his statement he detailed how Boehner and his leadership actually have misled members of the House […]

McCain Wages ‘All-Out War’ to Rid Arizona GOP of Tea Party

Hat/Tip to Melanie Batley at Newsmax. You know, it’s too bad he didn’t show this kinda backbone when he ran against Obama in 2008. Someone should have told him Obie was a Tea Partier… Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain’s team is on a campaign to rid the Arizona Republican Party of tea party officials, replacing them with allies to the senator in advance of an expected bid for a sixth term in 2016. According to Politico. which spoke to nearly a dozen sources, McCain’s team has been working with strategists and fundraisers across the country to undermine the standing of conservatives […]

Mitch McConnell: Being The Party Of “Yes” More Important Than Defunding Executive Amnesty…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. RINO ALERT! (not that this is anything new…) Mitch McConnell is suffering from the same delusional thinking that gave us two terms of Obama. But then this is what you get when the GOP runs on absolutely NO PLATFORM during the recent midterms. All they said was that they weren’t Obama. Big freakin’ deal. My wife’s cat isn’t Obama either, but I wouldn’t want him legislating. If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything and this is exactly what the GOP is doing. They are falling for the same old Democratic talking points that unless […]

Must See Video: Tea Party Nation Founder – GOP Collapse Imminent

Hat/Tip to Sean Piccoli at Newsmax. History.com had this to say about the demise of the Whig Party which was brought about, in part by the birth of the Republican Party: Ultimately, however, the Whigs are best understood as an American major party trying to be many things to many men, ready to abandon one deeply held ‘conviction’ for another in the drive for political power. The party died not because its unique aura no longer appealed to voters but because it could not cope effectively or persuasively with what after the Compromise of 1850 became the great issue of […]

Step By Step Guide To Replace John Boehner As Speaker Of The House

  Hat/Tip to Crow’s Nest Politics. Could it happen? Yes, it could, but we’d have to practically melt the phone lines in DC to really get the GOP Rank-n-File’s attention. Let us not forget that nowhere does it say that the Speaker has to be a member of the House of Representatives. They can elect anyone to that post. INSTRUCTIONS; 1. Click on the map or hyperlink and get your phone number and email address. 2. VERY POLITELY call your Representatives office. Inform the “STAFFER” that you would like to officially make your House Member aware that we do not […]

RINOS Beware: Sean Hannity Yanks Karl Rove Off The Air!

Hat/Tip to iizthatiiz. Why did Hannity cut Karl Rove off? Well he was in the middle of defending Boehner’s total sell out to the Conservative movement, for one. But to be fair, no explanation was given, so we are left to only wonder. However, we’ll see from here on out how often Rove is asked back to be on Hannity’s show and if he is, just how far will he go to defend Boehner? December 11th, 2014 • Fox News host Sean Hannity is calling for the removal of John Boehner as House Speaker in the wake of the passage […]

Mandate? We Don’t Need No Steenking Mandate: Boehner’s Spending Deals Have Increased Debt $4 TRILLION

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. “I came as a reformer, but when people in charge don’t want to reform, the only way is revolution!” Did that quote come from one of the Tea Party House Republicans? No. Ted Cruz, over in the Senate? Nuh-uh. Believe it or not that quote came from John Boehner’s own lips. – Hat/Tip to Mark Levin. He said that as a firebrand young Conservative member of the House, intent on reforming the GOP and cutting the wasteful spending practices of Washington back in 1993. My oh my, how the times have changed. Fast forward 21 1/2 years […]

House GOP Leadership Take Page From Pelosi Playbook To Trick Rank And File Into Supporting Obama’s Amnesty By Executive Order

    Hat/Tip to Matthew Boyle at Breitbart.com. Continuing to prove his fidelity to the Tea Party and all it stands for, Texas Representative Louie Gohmert shined a spotlight on a tricky maneuver that would make Nancy Pelosi green with envy. Well okay, Pelosi is green much of the time, but you know what I mean. In a lengthy interview on Friday afternoon, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) exposed how House Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Majority Whip Steve Scalise strengthened President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty with procedural trickery former Speaker Nancy Pelosi and ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber […]

NJ Democrats’ Bridgegate Report Clears Chris Christie

  They dug, and they dug, and they dug. And they found nothing. Oops. A report summarizing a yearlong investigation by the legislative panel examining the George Washington Bridge lane closures found no evidence of Governor Christie’s involvement but concluded that two of his allies acted “with perceived impunity” when they gridlocked Fort Lee’s streets apparently for political reasons. The committee’s 136-page report, drawing off sworn testimony, private interviews and thousands of subpoenaed documents, also highlights the unsuccessful efforts by a now-shuttered arm of Christie’s office to court the Fort Lee mayor’s endorsement, finding that the closures were “motivated in […]

Boehner Calls Tea Party ‘Knuckleheads’, Wants Rule Change to Squelch Their Influence

Hat/Tip to Todd Beamon at Newsmax. Back in the good old days of the Cold War, the Soviet Union relied on their Politburo to help them rule with an Iron Fist. How’s that song go, again? Oh yeah!   :::Everything old is new again!:::   Well it looks like that rule by Iron Fist is alive and well in the Republican Party, at least in the House, anyway. It looks like Johnny Boehner won’t be caught all embarrassed again when it comes time to vote for the Speaker of the House for the next Congress. See, they have a private […]

Bridgegate: After 9 Months of Digging, Feds Find No Link to Chris Christie

Oops, the Big Guy wasn’t in the loop after all. The U.S. Justice Department investigation into Gov. Chris Christie’s role in the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal has thus far uncovered no evidence indicating that he either knew in advance or directed the closure of traffic lanes on the span, federal officials tell NBC 4 New York. The September 2013 closures — where several entrance lanes to the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee were shut down, causing a traffic nightmare for commuters — has been the subject of several federal and state investigations. Federal officials caution that the […]
