Conservative groups rebel
against Boehner

Politico, by Jake Sherman and John Bresnahan

Original Article

Posted By:Gretchen, 12/4/2012 8:29:54 AM

Several prominent conservative organizations lashed out against a pair of decisions by Speaker John Boehner’s leadership team as House Republicans saw their tightly held grip on the right loosen a bit on Monday. Heritage Action, long a thorn in the side of the House Republican leadership, told its members in an email that Boehner was asking his “members to go back on their promise not to raise taxes on the American people” by putting $800 billion in new revenue into the mix of the negotiations to avert the fiscal cliff.

A third party is coming.

So let me see if I get this..Lets keep a tax code of almost 75k pages. Lets let GE pay NO taxes while they are getting billions of dollars in Gov´t contracts?

Lets let large corporations keep playing games with the tax code while smile business pay their taxes and keep fighting on?

Since when did the GOP become the enemy of small business?

Whatever they do, the simple fact is that Obama wants mo money...mo money to spend.
He doesn´t give a damn about the debt and deficit.

They should oppose tax hike on the rich. If Republicans are incapable of making the moral argument that the tax code is already too progressive and it is not fair for half the country to escape the cost of big government, they will continue to lose the argument.

#2. Corporations don´t pay taxes--people do. Alternatively, why not eliminate all individual taxation and make corporations make up the difference? Damn, that would get me elected!!!

Boehner is the worst Speaker and surrenders at the drop of a hat. He has no guts to make the hard decisions. He is, I believe, a bigger enemy to the GOP than the president. Time for the GOP to dump him and get someone with the ability to make those hard decisions. We need someone who will make winners of the GOP. Remember in the sports world, when a manager does not cut it, he goes. Boehner is not cutting it.

Boehner looks like a drunk that smokes and cries a lot. He is forever presenting concessions to Obama and sticking it to conservatives. Conservatives need to revolt and replace Boehner.

You really want to kill our Republic - then introduce a 3rd Party. I will stand & fight with the Tea Party but I will not join a Libertarian Anarchy!! What in the hell do you think Palin,Gingrich,Rush,Levin,DeMint,Sessions,Cruz,Bachmann,Rubio,Perry,Issa & others have been talking about - not a 3rd Party?? Paul may be right about the Federal but he is not correct on Israel & a FEW allies we still have. Talking to pastors & priests would help a lot more than starting a 3rd Party - they are the ones at fault. II Chronicles 7:14

One more reason I´m a small-L libertarian. The Libertarian Party, as it is now, is way too concerned with ideological purity tests. So you have anarcho-capitalists fighing Objectivists fighting minarchists and so on.

It seems to me that libertarians don´t differ much from small government conservatives on fiscal matters. Why don´t those who claim to be libertarians work to focus on vetting and providing fiscal conservatives in the primaries? Oh wait, that would be strategic. Face it, leftists like being herded like sheep, which is why it´s easy to organize them. Those on the right prefer to rip themselves, their party, and the country apart.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Stop dressing so tacky for church

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

"No, absolutely not," the November midterm election is not a referendum on President Obama and his policies, Democrat Party Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) told NBC´s "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "[T]hese elections, particularly the Senate elections, are referendums on the candidates running," she said. Asked about vulnerable Democrats who have criticized President Obama´s flawed healthcare law, Wasserman Schultz said they are running their own race. "They have to talk about and focus on the issues that are important to their constituents. And what´s also true is, if you look at the success rate and the track record of

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is
