John Boehner

The only person who wants the House to impeach Barack Obama is … Barack Obama

Because nothing else will re-energize his base. His presidency is an abysmal failure. He’s disengaged, disinterested, and borderline delusional. The world is passing him by. So what better way to bump his sagging poll numbers than by pretending he’s under savage attack by Evil Rethuglicans? As if anyone would actually impeach the first black president. Yeah, I can just imagine how well that’ll play in Peoria. Not even The Stupid Party is that stupid. Besides, President Biden. Shudder. John Boehner nailed the Democrats’ strategy — fundraise on fear. House Speaker John Boehner torched Democrats on Tuesday over talk of impeaching […]

Boehner: Defunding Obama’s Unconstitutional Acts Off the Table.

Hat/Tip to CNSNews. Incredibly, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) seems to be unwilling to use the Congress’ Constitutional ‘Power of the Purse’ to rein in our lawless President. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) indicated today that if President Barack Obama takes actions that exceed his constitutional authority, the House of Representatives has no plans to use its own constitutional authority to withhold funding from those actions. At his weekly press briefing, CNSNews.com asked Boehner: “You’ve said you disagree with calls to impeach the president over abuse of power via executive actions. But under the Constitution the House actually has the […]

A Country Without A President

“To think just Monday Democrats were whining over spending $3.3 million to investigate Obama’s IRS scandal. Now Obama actually has the balls to ask for $3.8 billion to throw at his influx of migrant Democrats … If the GOP is dumb enough to give him money they need to take it out of his vacation and party budget.” – JWF Trusting a dyed-in-the-red-wool radical like Barack Obama to secure the border is dumber than expecting a hardcore junkie to secure a medicine cabinet full of vicodin and codeine. Obama and his motley crew of anti-American cockroaches won’t be satisfied until […]

Obama Not Scared of Boehner’s Lawsuit, Vows to keep ‘ruling’ by Executive Order

Hat/Tip to The Washington Times. Obama ignores Boehner’s lawsuit threat: ‘I’ll keep taking actions on my own’ It would seem that not only is President Obama unfazed by a Boehner lawsuit, he openly mocks Boehner and the GOP in the House by falling back on his favorite tactic, that of division politics. “Republicans in Congress keep blocking or voting down almost every serious idea. This year alone they’ve said no to raising the minimum wage, no to fair pay, no to student loan reform, no to extending unemployment insurance,” Mr. Obama said. “This obstruction keeps the system rigged for those […]

John Boehner to Sue Obama Over Abuse of Executive Powers

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. In a memo distributed to House members, Boehner accused Obama of “aggressive unilateralism” and said if left unchecked, it would give the president “king-like authority at the expense of the American people and their elected legislators.” The House will vote next month on legislation authorizing a campaign-season lawsuit accusing President Barack Obama of failing to carry out the laws passed by Congress, Speaker John Boehner announced on Wednesday. As reported here at Conservative Hideout 2.0, John Boehner had been considering whether to bring a lawsuit against the President for his anti-Constitutional activities. Predictably the White House is […]

Is Boehner Shedding his RINO Skin?

Hat/Tip to the Tea Party News Network and the Business Insider. The only thing more prevalent in the bubble that is Washington DC than corruption is the rumor mill. And now the latest rumor is that Speaker of the House, John Boehner is considering filing a lawsuit against President Barack Obama for his continued usurping of Congress’s enumerated powers and he lawless disregard for one of the pillars of our Constitution, and that is Separation of Powers. Now it’s no secret that there is plenty of buzz about Boehner’s days as Speaker, as he is getting huge opposition from the […]

Democrat Senators Block VA Accountability Bill

Hat/Tip CNS News. A bill that would allow for better control of the Veteran’s Administration, making it easier to fire VA employees and make it easier to hold the agency accountable passed with flying colors (both red and blue) in the House of Representatives. However, Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats blocked its passage. Speaker John Boehner wasn’t happy: As we head into the Memorial Day weekend, I am disappointed, and-frankly-shocked that Senate Democratic leaders chose to block legislation that would hold VA managers accountable,” Boehner said in a statement. “As we head home to honor the men and women who […]

Obama’s Senior Adviser Announces Disturbing Partnership With John Boehner

Hat/Tip to Western Journalism. Oh Johnny! What have you done now? Republican House Speaker John Boehner has given the conservative base of his party more than a few reasons to question his leadership. A chief concern of many opponents is his apparent willingness – along with other GOP leaders – to advance some level of amnesty for the millions of illegal aliens currently in the U.S. In a candid address to Democrat supporters in Las Vegas recently, Senior Obama Adviser Valerie Jarrett added even more validity to such anxiety. She described Boehner as “frustrated” regarding the immigration issue, explaining he is […]

Demands Explode for Trey Gowdy to Be Speaker of the House

Hat/Tip to The Conservative Tribune. John Boehner has said that he may not be Speaker of the House after this term. Boehner was the guest of honor at a sold-out luncheon with business owners in San Antonio. His future came up in a Q&A at the event with a Texas Tribune reporter, and Boehner did not commit to a full term as speaker in the 114th Congress that starts in January. “Listen, I’m going to be 65 years old in November,” Politico quoted Boehner as saying. “I never thought I’d live to be 60. So, I’m living on borrowed time.” […]

Rep. Gowdy: ‘I Have Evidence’ of Cover-Up on Benghazi

We all know that Speaker of the House, John Boehner finally appointed a select committee to investigate the Benghazi cover-up of the attack and subsequent deaths of four Americans. Hat/Tip to Newsmax for this story, because I think he picked the right person to lead this committee. Rep. Trey Gowdy is a former federal prosecutor and formerly with the US Attorney’s office.  (Newsmax) – Rep. Trey Gowdy said Friday that he has evidence of a “systematic, intentional” effort by the Obama administration to withhold documents from Congress about the 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans. “I have evidence that, […]

Mark Levin Slams GOP as ‘French Republicans’ at NRA Convention

Conservative radio icon, Mark Levin was a guest speaker at the National Rifle association’s annual convention Friday, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. He only spoke for a little over 10 minutes, but just like a scatter gun, he hit a lot of targets. Now it’s obvious to many of us that we live in a post-Constitutional period. This has been the objective of the Democrat Party for a century. Meanwhile, the other party acts like a bunch of French Republicans, confounded, confused, not sure what to do. They’re looking for a new agenda, they’re looking for a […]

Boehner & Establishment GOP Declare War on the Tea Party

“I have made it clear that I have great respect for the tea party and the energy they brought to the electoral process,” said Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R) Ohio to reporters in February of this year. Then, in a statement that more resembled his famed crying incidents, he went on to whine, “My gripe is with some Washington organizations who feel like they’ve got to go raise money by beating on me and others.” That’s what politics is all about, I thought. But it seems the establishment GOP takes offense to being reminded that their constituencies would […]

Republican Senator Mitch McConnell Sold Out To Obama and The Democrats

Once again the elites in Washington have proven that the founding concept of a “government of the people, by the people and for the people” is nothing more than a myth. Senator Mitch McConnell  sold out the Tea Party Republicans for a large barrel of pork for his state of Kentucky. Not only did the Republican leader in the Senate give Obama everything they wanted on the Continuing Resolution and the Debt Ceiling, he gave Obama the tool to be able the raise the debt ceiling in the future without having to worry about what the Republicans want in exchange. Breitbart […]

GOP: Inept By Definition?

in·ept   [in-ept, ih-nept]  Show IPA adjective 1. without skill or aptitude for a particular task or assignment; maladroit: He is inept at mechanical tasks.She is inept at dealing with people. 2. generally awkward or clumsy; haplessly incompetent. 3. inappropriate; unsuitable; out of place. 4. absurd or foolish: an inept remark. No where does the ineptitude of Republicans more clearly on display than their absolute inability to articulate an easily understood message to the public on any serious issue; like ObamaCare, for example. The good Dr. Thomas Sowell wrote a blistering analysis of the GOP’s messaging problem the other day. This was his opening volley: If the continued existence of mathematics depended on the ability of the Republicans to defend the proposition that two plus two equals four, that would probably mean the end of mathematics and of […]

John Boehner: Et Tu, Doofus?

Republicans John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Mitch McConnell, and John Cornyn are preparing to gift wrap their testicles and present them to Barack Obama.  According to Red State, the GOP castrati are expected to cave in and fully fund, unimpeded, Obamacare.  They will work up a new deal that includes a debt ceiling increase with a few sops to the GOP as cover. The only change they are still considering it the medical device tax repeal, which is being heavily lobbied for by former Boehner and McConnell staffers who left for K Street. A number of Democrats who are recipients of […]

RINO ALERT!! Boehner Willing to Abandon GOP & 2nd Amendment

In the spirit of pure bipartisanship that is simply for the sake of saying a bill is bipartisan, Speaker of the House, John Boehner said the following when asked if the Senate gun control bill would pass with a majority of HIS OWN FREAKING PARTY not voting for it: “GOP? GOP? I don’t need no steenking GOP to take yer guns!!” Okay, first of all, I paraphrased and secondly he was referring to the Hastert Rule which basically says that any bill without support of the majority party will not be brought to the floor for a vote. But Johnny […]

Mark Levin wants John Boehner and the Republican Leadership Removed M

Most of you know I’m no fan of John Boehner.  It was an epic failure by the House Republicans when they voted him back in as Speaker this past January.  The Republicans once again let an opportunity get away from them to turn this thing around and make a difference.  Today I was listening to Sean Hannity on the radio and he was interviewing John Boehner.  Nothing Boehner said inspired or gave me hope as a conservative.  He is the poster child for the establishment and as long as he remains as Speaker of the House conservatism will suffer.  Today […]

Rhinovirus Devastates Republicans

Several Republicans on Capitol Hill have fallen ill with the Rhinovirus, it has been learned.  Lindsey Graham, John McCain, John Boehner among other prominent Republicans are among those affected by the pernicious virus. “It is flu season” said a Washington D.C. doctor treating the Republican lawmakers. Still at the very least one would think that these men would be more careful.  They are busy, important men with constituencies to take care of.  But once they get infected with the Rhinovirus they are pretty much useless. Congressman Graham was the first to come ill, complaining of a runny nose and a […]

It’s time to do the right thing…Fire John Boehner?

For the last couple of days I’ve been observing the Benghazi hearings and the negotiations going on with John Boehner and Democratic leaders to prevent us from going off a fiscal cliff.  It appears the left cares more about politicizing events to advance the agenda of their political party than doing what’s right and good for America and I’m personally tired of it.  Benghazi is a no-brainer. After seven hours of fighting and numerous requests for help, we failed to answer the call and left our citizens to die in the streets of Benghazi.  This alone is absolutely unacceptable, but […]

Americans Applaud End of Freedom!

By an overwhelming vote that crossed partisan lines, congress today voted to end all freedom of choice for all Americans for everything. “It is time we realize that freedom is not absolute” declared Senate Majority leader Harry Reid (D-NV).  “People are using their freedoms to make wrong choices.  The wrong foods to eat.  The wrong recreational drugs to use.  The wrong sexual positions to enjoy.  These decisions are too important to be left to the people.  This is where the government steps in.” “There is an epidemic in America today” declared Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).  “It is an epidemic of unhealthy wellness choices.” “We […]

Useful Idiot of the Month Poll: July 2011

useful-idiot-cat

July just flew by, didn’t it?  But, for as fast as it went, there was a ton of Useful Idiocy to ridicule.  I’d like to thank everyone who responded to the call, and nominated a useful idiot. Without further ado, here are your nominees: 1.  Sheila Jackson Lee:  Lee laid down the race card so hard, that the Chinese felt it.  Considering that she was narrowly defeated last month-by her OWN constituents, maybe she has gas in the tank to pull it out for July. 2. David Wu: For pulling a furry Weiner (sorry, had to be said).  And now for the obligatory Furry […]

A Historic Day: 112th Congress

Well folks, yesterday was an historic day.  The 112th Congress is upon us.  The days of Nancy Pelosi as speaker are over.  The GOP is now firmly in control of the House, and the Democrats have moved back to the shadows.  It’s a great day, don’t get me wrong, but let’s take a look at how we got to this moment. The “progressives” in government and the MSM had much to gloat about in November 2008.  They all parroted the narrative that Conservatism was “dead.”  The Democrats, by the way, were laying the groundwork for “30 year majority.”  We were […]
