Boehner faces ouster
threats within GOP

Washington Times, by David Sherfinski

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/10/2012 10:24:36 PM

House Speaker John A. Boehner is facing increasing pressure as several rebellious Republicans hinted that they won’t vote to re-elect him to run the chamber, and a conservative interest group announced a bid to recruit someone else to run against him for the speakership. Mr. Boehner, an Ohio Republican, is not in any danger yet — the rebellion shows no signs of reaching beyond a small group of dissatisfied lawmakers — but it could complicate his efforts to strike a deal with President Obama to head off the looming “fiscal cliff” that will send tax rates soaring

Retire this bum to the "Olive Garden" where his spine can be used in the "endless pasta" bowls.

No. 2 was nicer to the GOP than I was. I got an "urgent appeal" from the RNC and tossed it in the garbage without bothering to reply.
I contributed to the RNC and the Romney Campaign, and they p___ed by money away. I´ll wait until they have a candidate worth backing.

Spineless, bloated face Tax Raising Traitor Boehner. How could we be worse off? Our recently elected Tea Party patriots (or are they?) say nothing, sit there numb in total silence while mob boss betrays Boehner all of America, the Constitution and his responsibiltie to whatever is left of the republocrats party. Let´s face there is nobody running around the halls of Congress screaming their bloddy heads off angrier than they have ever been. That would be normal, but hey, they all accept creeping Communism because they are all on the inside
Boehner, Congress, proteced by Diane Sawyer;
it´s a complete and unneecessary nightmare.
With uniformly Communist Party Line words and almost an entire media conforming to the Party Line, it is time to take it back!

I told an NRC caller last week that they can put us on their "do not call" list, as I am resigning from the GOP. I told her that Boehner´s deal-making with Obama -- taking conservatives off committees was the final straw. The moderate candidates they have supported & forced on us was the beginning.

You gotta wonder how many people are telling them this.

Boehner has forgotten who got him the speakership. He should be more afraid of us than of Obama. Enough of this kabuki dance. Stand up and be a statesman and stop worrying about your poll numbers, Boehner or get out of the way!

I see that many others are also past waiting, hoping for Boehner to act like a man, much less the Speaker. I hope this isn´t some sniveling "leak." Real real tired of their games. The country and the party is in too much trouble to play around anymore with this clueless, overpaid coward. Boehner must go.

The answer is simple. Vote for Pilousy. Give the speakership back to the botox queen and watch the u-no-what hit the fan.

Boner would be a goner. After a about two or three months demand a revote and throw her sorry butt out again and put in another speaker with the caution that he or she sticks to the party line or they get the boot too.

Yeah yeah. Won´t work. But I can dream!

Boehner is a terrible negotiator. Rule 7. Do not negotiate on your opponent´s home ground. If you cannot meet on your home ground, insist on a neutral place. What does Boehner do - he goes to the White House for a Secret Meeting. This guy obviously knows nothing about negotiating.

You all haven´t heard it all yet. There´s a liberal scheme in the works to print two platinum dollars,declare they´re worth a trillion dollars each,put them in the fed reserve and use them as backing for a humongous print job.It´s a way around fighting over a debt limit increase.

The left needs a voracious amount of money to prop up their house of cards and need even more now to prop up the failed arab spring scam.

Wall St. fat cats are bemoaning that their bonuses will be smaller this year. Oh boohoo,this is what led to the TARP bailout. They wouldn´t get a bonus at all if they did honest accounting.Somehow,creative accounting allows them to keep toxic assets off the balance sheets.

the gov´t is spending $3.5 trillion a year,Bernake´s QE´s have pumped billions more and the economy still sucks and the reason is the real job creators are in Obama´s cross hairs.

The left hates a consumer driven economy yet they now think flooding people with money will improve the economy and it´s failing because the money is going to people who don´t need it.

Perhaps kicking Tea Partiers off committees during negotiations with Obozo smelled like a concession to Obozo and a betrayal of conservatives. But what do I know...

I am hoping that there are some principled Republicans that are really working to get Bonehead out. It´s hard to tell what is really going on. But we can´t afford any going along with Obama´s plans. If they really were ludicrous as Bonehead originally said, then he should not be meeting with Zippy in private. He would already know Zippy is NOT serious about fixing the economy.

"Boehner faces ouster threats within GOP" Well, gee whiz... It´s about time!!!

And, PS: for those getting mailers from the GOP asking for $$$ --
1. Carefully open the envelope.
2. Take a magic marker and write "NOT until you promote Conservatives" on all the sheets.
3.Carefully stuff all the sheets back in the prepaid ´return´ envelope.
4. Seal & mail envelope back to the GOP.

I also received my GOP fundraising request. I´m using their postage paid envelope and writing them back asking if they´re out of their ever loving minds. They abandoned Michele Bachmann, I donated to her personally. They abandoned Allen West. They hate us tea party conservatives. They´re getting an earful, on their dime.

If they´re testing the waters let´s tell them how we really feel. Including our bleak future thanks to them supporting the guy who apparently could not win.

USAID documents cite Hillary
Clinton in chaos of Afghan aid
Washington Times, by Guy Taylor    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/20/2014 10:21:24 PM     Post Reply
In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

If “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory were a guest on his own show, he knows the kinds of questions he’d be asked. Why have your ratings been falling? Is the show in trouble? Is your job in trouble? “I get it,” says Gregory, the face of the longest-running TV program in American history (founded: 1947). “Do I want to be number one in the ratings? Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now. It’s a fight.” He adds, “I’m not just trying to sell you — well, I am trying to sell you — but I’m not going to B.S. you, either. Yeah, it’s hard. I see what our challenges are.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

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

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

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
