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 […]

Boehner Already Trying To Suck Up On Amnesty: “It is just time to deal with it”

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!!! Well it seems that even though the rest of us realize that, Cryin’ Johnny Boehner hasn’t caught on. Nope, not even a little bit. 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. […]

If you’re wondering if our government is friend or foe, wonder no more.

Political cartoonists are some of our most clever people. With simple caricatures and a few words they are able to capture the essence of an important issue facing the people. In my opinion, this cartoon which I borrowed from Zero Hedge, explains perfectly why Americans on Main Street do not feel like the government is working in your best interests. h/t @butifulabsurdt That’s exactly right, isn’t it? The well being of the folks on Main Street was not a fundamental of interest to our central planners in Washington, D.C. Your well being was not a part of their calculus. Instead, […]

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.” […]
