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 […]

Obama And His Senior Advisers Furious About Netanyahu’s Upcoming Visit: “There Will Be A Price!”

  Hat/Tip to Fox News. Looks like John Boehner finally grew a pair and took action to directly challenge President Obama, albeit in a round-about manner. Speaker of the House, John Boehner invited Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu to speak at a joint session of Congress. And he did so without consulting with the White House. It seemed to be in response to Obama’s State of the Union speech, in which he warned Congress against new sanctions on Iran to halt their development of nuclear weapons. Boehner has asked Netanyahu to talk about the threats posed by Iran and ISIS. […]

Boehner: House Will Fund Homeland Security, Block Obama On Executive Amnesty

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. While this is early and nothing more than a public statement (words, not actions), embattled Speaker of the House John Boehner is starting to sound like he may have taken the challenge from the right to his Speakership a bit more serious than previously thought. The U.S. House of Representatives will vote to fully fund the Department of Homeland Security this week while blocking President Barack Obama’s actions on immigration, House Speaker John Boehner said on Tuesday. The $39.7 billion spending bill was expected to pass by Wednesday, when House Republicans leave Washington for a two-day policy […]

Phriday Political Phun

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 Begins to Move Against Re-election Opponents

Hat/Tip to Elliot Jager at Newsmax. Hell hath no fury like a Speaker scorned… Newly re-elected House Speaker John Boehner is taking off the gloves. Some of the 25 Republican insurgents who opposed his re-election on the grounds that he is insufficiently conservative will find themselves locked out of desirable committee appointments or face other retribution, Politico reported. Now that he is back for a third terms in the speaker’s chair, Boehner and his team say they can count on a 220-member majority out of the 435-member House to follow the leadership’s cue. The reckoning came straight away for Florida […]

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 […]

Gohmert Says He’s Rounding Up The 29 Votes To Defeat Boehner

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Boehner’s days as Speaker could be numbered… Cross your fingers… Via Washington Examiner: One of the two Republicans pledging to challenge the re-election of House Speaker John Boehner said conservatives are rounding up the 29 votes needed to defeat him. Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, told Laura Ingraham on her radio show that the effort to overthrow Boehner stands a better chance than a failed coup in 2012 because this time, disgruntled GOP lawmakers have another choice. “I was persuaded by some of my newer colleagues in the Congress that people have to have a name,” Gohmert said. […]

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 […]

Conservative Lawmakers Plan To Vote Against Boehner For Speaker

  Hat/Tip to Alex Pappas at The Daily Caller. File this one under, “Maybe there is STILL hope for the GOP.” Some disaffected conservative House Republicans are planning to rebel and vote against John Boehner for speaker of the House when the new Congress convenes next week. The official speaker’s election is set for Jan. 6., when the House will convene for a public floor vote to open the new Congress.  While the vote is usually just a formality, these conservative lawmakers are planning to vote for someone other than the Ohio Republican who has been speaker since 2011. There […]

Is It Time For Trey Gowdy To Be Speaker Of The House? It Sure Looks Like It

Is it time for John Boehner to go? In this author’s opinion, not only yes, but “Hell yes!” But who would we like to see in his place? Well there are some good choices and some not so good choices: Trey Gowdy R-SC Darrell Issa R-CA Jeb Hensarling R-TX Kevin McCarthy R-CA Walter Jones R-NC Jim Jordan R-OH Steve Scalise R-LA Tom Price R-GA Paul Ryan R-WI Cathy McMorris Rodgers R-WA In all honesty, this author would have to say that the best choice for Boehner’s replacement would have to be Congressman Trey Gowdy from South Carolina. He’s a tough […]

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 […]

GOP CAVE: Cromnibus Will Not Include Relief From Michelle Obama’s School Lunch Program

Hat/Tip to Dr. Susan Berry at Breitbart. Even though millions of kids and parents across America have rejected it, and countless nutritionists, health care workers and school officials hate it as well, guess what? Good ‘Ole Johnny Boehner has given President Obama everything he wanted, even this crap. Though school officials, nutritionists, parents, and students have decried First Lady Michelle Obama’s school lunch program, the $1 trillion CRomnibus (part “continuing resolution” and part “omnibus”) does not include relief from the unpopular meals standards after all. Waiver? They don’t need no steenking waivers!! Daren Bakst at The Daily Signal notes that the spending […]

The GOP Takes A Dive

Boehner and Obama Join to Pass Bill Funding Obamacare and Amnesty “John Boehner has just squandered the election results before the Republicans even are sworn in.” – Rush Limbaugh “$2.5 billion for illegal immigrants and Obamacare is funded through the fiscal year, that’s a conservative speaker? I don’t think so. It’s a sad day that John Boehner doesn’t realize that there was an election … he is everything that’s wrong with Washington. He’s a Democratic Party-lite … He should not be the speaker. He should be replaced.” – Sean Hannity “I think he ought to be able to pick up […]

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 […]

Hat/Tip to Terence P. Jeffrey at CNSNews.com. The Midterms are over, the votes have been cast and the message is clear. STOP BARACK OBAMA!!!

He’s already making noises that he will STILL give Obama whatever in the blue hell he wants. House Speaker John Boehner said at a press conference today that “it is just time to deal with” the issue of immigration reform, indicating he hopes to enact an immigration law in the coming year. […]
