GOP lawmaker: Boehner said
members were punished for
their ´voting patterns´

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Molly K. Hooper

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) warned his conference on Wednesday that leaders are "watching" how the rank-and-file vote to determine committee assignments, according to sources in the closed-door meeting. Boehner addressed the firestorm over the removal of four lawmakers from plum committee assignments at the weekly GOP conference meeting. According to Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.), one of the lawmakers denied a spot on his current committee in the next Congress, Boehner did note "that we [leadership] have punished four members, he claimed that it had nothing to do with their conservative ideology, but had to do with their voting patterns."

Comments:
What a joke. Republicans specialize in dumping on their own people. The last paragraph tells it all. They weren´t even given a list of the alleged votes that rewarded or punished the members of the committees. Amazing.

As soon as I can get there, I will no longer be a registered Republican. I cannot vote for this bunch led by Boehner. No backbone, no principles, no more money or votes. Done. I will vote only when I think there is someone worth while voting for. You can say, then you are letting them win. No, I see it as Boehner and his ilk letting them win for years and years. Call it caving.

I think 2014 will be a good time to remind Boehner, Cantor and McCarthy that the Tea Party conservatives are the one and only reason they lead the majority in the House. I live 90 miles from Cincinnati and think I will go up there to work to defeat the twitchy-lipped Boehner.

Lucianne should put up a special thread for a few days to let us brainstorm as to what a new party should be, who should start it and lead it, what it should be called, etc. Republican no longer means conservative, yet conservatives are supposedly in the majority in the country. I think a Conservative Party would put republicans out of business in short order.

The voting pattern i want to see is the following: VOTE John Boehner out as speaker and out of office.

Boehner ~ When will you get a Clue ~ the Left is cemented together like glue and YOU divide your party. My Congressman ~ Justin Amash is a great young man and a clear thinker and we in this district love him for his openness ~ posting all his votes and the reasons for them on facebook.How refreshing ! Tea Party ~ it´s time to break away and get it on your own.

There are a few "Replace Boehner as Speaker" Facebook pages. I haven´t found the one I´d like to see "Replace Boehner with Paul Ryan", maybe I should start that page.

Boehner knows he´s the speaker of the house because the Dems want him to be. Democrat election fraud is so entrenched, he knows which side holds the cards and it´s not the GOP. He will do the dems´ bidding and the dems don´t want trouble makers in lead roles.

Boehner has no expectation that he will lose if he sides with the dems. They will help him keep his seat as long as it is worth it to them to keep the House under "Republican" control.

The entire Republican party needs to be scrapped and replaced by a party that has not signed off on never investigating Democrat election fraud and lining its own pockets.

Looks as though the elephants are getting WAY to big for their britches. Remember this, ´you ´never forget elephants´ YOU are the majority at the moment only because of conservatives. You want to play dirty and rough? You do so at your own peril. We can leave you as fast as you tend to walk away. Watch us and watch our feet. Careful....your clock is ticking and your time is up. Face it you two bit klowns, you need us much more than we need you traitors. As another poster said today. This is JB just giving Two Won another bonus to add to the scalps. Just as our o great dictator wants his way, ousting conservatives is just another bullet of his agenda. My God, look who has been placed on the finance committee...the loon Maxine Waters.....and JB allowed this why??? JB, did you ever see ´Dallas´ Your character has morphed into JR. Dream on you bugger.

Boehner´s a company man first, a Republican second and conservative doesn´t make the top ten. First and foremost he´s a company man and the company business is Big Government. He has never supported small government conservatism. He kept Jeff Flake, my new Senator, off the appropriations committee because of his crusade against pork.

I see a groundswell biulding up of people coming to face the truth of the demise of the republican party - and not before time. The leadership continues to be pitiful. They sold out their principles a long time ago. Forget party identification and get the best men and women who will uphold the constitution and properly represent their constituents. They thumbed their collective nose atthe newly electeds with the energy in favor of compromised dead wood.

The actions of the TEA party conservatives are what put Boehner in the role of Speaker of the House.
Now he spits on conservatives.
And kisses the arse of Obama. We will not forget this, Boehner. Is everyone aware that Boehner preferred a democrat in Michele Bachmann´s seat and told the RNC NOT to fund her campaign? She received not ONE cent from the RNC in her hard fought race for re-election! I guess she was too conservative for King Boehner.

About 6 years in Congress rots a person´s ethics and morals. Boehner has more in common with Reid, Pelosi, Biden, and Obama than he does with you and I. Work to elect conservatives and give no money to the RNC.

Did you notice that the reason Mitt lost was because the GOP could not turn out the base?

This is why. Next election they will turn out even less. It is time for a new party.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Sheesh! Talk about a complete ingrate... Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

After his Masters victory, pro golfer Bubba Watson celebrated with his family at a Waffle House. Pictures tweeted from there went viral. Waffle House appreciated the appreciation. What´s not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson´s a complete phony about what he really eats. She went after Watson on one of Neil Cavuto´s Fox programs yesterday, and in doing so caught talk show host Rush Limbaugh´s

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Without mentioning reports that the man accused of shooting up a Jewish Community Center over the weekend was apparently a fan of the left´s Max Blumenthal, CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen exploited the murders to claim the American Right is more deadly than jihadists. In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda´s ideology. According to a count by the New America Foundation, right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the

It’s not every day that Bill O’Reilly accuses someone else of expressing “right-wing paranoia,” but that’s what happened Tuesday night when he faced off with Fox News contributor Monica Crowley over a proposed solution to the controversy over voter ID laws. O’Reilly began his show by giving a soft endorsement to an idea put forward by former President Bill Clinton that would add photos to social security cards, which American citizens are already required to have in their possession. “I am all for combating voter fraud by using voter I.D.,” Crowley told O’Reilly. “My issue with the social security card in particular

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
