Boehner´s Boners

What´s up with John Boehner? Has he lost his mind or something? There are a lot of conservatives who think he´s gone around the bend. He´s done precious little to convince anyone otherwise. He sounds more like a Democrat than a Republican these days, and he´s giving credence to those who believe,"There´s not a dime´s worth of difference between the Republicans and Democrats." Boehner on Taxes Here are some of the more egregious quotes: right after the election, from an interview with Dianne Sawyer of ABC news.

I see little-to-no alternative left to a third party. This has gone on long enough with the GOP occasionally talking tough but always acting like Democrat-lite. There is simply no excuse anymore, and the last straw has been strawed.

Today´s GOP is more liberal than the Democrats of the 1960s.

Some of what Boehner is saying is PR to make it look like he´s open to a deal.Still the level of trust just isn´t there. He should take Obama´s bloviating about a tax increase personally but he won´t.What ever he does has to pass the whole House so there´s hope.There´s going to be a short term extension anyway.

This should be a Must Read!

We must do everything we can to force Boehner to set down as Speaker. He is clearly not up to the job. Same goes for McConnell.

Democrats are unified in their disunity--

The GOP is simply lost-- not wanting to return to its conservative base.

Third Party-- forget it..purge the pantywaists from the Republican party-- you have 2 years to rebuild---and another two to defeat Hillary!

Like everyone else here I am skittish about Boehner. But who among the House conservatives is willing to seriously challenge him for the Speakership? Anyone? A few qualified and cautious remarks by that fellow Price from GA don´t count for anything.

And if someone did step up and run against Boehner, how many votes would he or she receive? I think that to just to ask that question is to answer it.

IMO Talk of futile challenges and third parties is a waste of time and energy. We just have to concentrate on putting maximum pressure on Boehner and his cohorts to concede as little ground as possible.

Why is so much effort being put forth to tear down the GOP? How about a story titled, "Bam Bam´s Boners."

There comes a point when a car is just too broken to fix any more. No matter how many parts you replace, the next breakdown is just around the corner. The GOP is past that point.

Some may hold onto that old Dodge for sentimental reasons, but the cost to maintain and lack of reliability make it a burden and even dangerous.

A Conservative party is looking better and better all the time.

I had some hope for Boehner´s leadership in the beginning, but he is just another go along to get along, politics as usual guy.

How disheartening that he works for himself, power, and money and not for the American people.

It would be best that he step aside, especially if he is the object of blackmail. A typical move employed by this corrupt Chicago gangster regime. How else to explain Boehner´s "cave" on everything on the Demonrat wish lish?

A Conservative Party is in order, and Boehner is not welcome in it. At this point, conservatives would do well to let Obama have everything he wants, and then own the consequences. In the meantime, gird for the 2014 elections with a caucus of like-minded fiscal conservatives prepared to hang a “Under New Management” sign on the GOP, or, if necessary, move on to a new organization.

There’s nothing left in the establishment Republican Party worth keeping.

Boehner is the face of the problem with the Republican party. The GOP has no room for conservative, contitution-minded people (except during elections) which leaves a sizable number of Americans without a party to vote for. The choices seem to be either retaking the GOP for conservatives or starting a serious 3rd party and both choices are terribly hard. We all know that Boehner will do exactly what 0bama wants after a little tap dance for the folks back home.

#5 is correct IMO: "Third Party-- forget it..purge the pantywaists from the Republican party-- you have 2 years to rebuild---and another two to defeat Hillary!"

I´m very disappointed in Boehner, and I thought my head would explode when I heard him say "Obamacare is the law of the land."

Doesn´t he realize that the House writes bills? The Republicans can write the bills and work to get the Senate to agree - yes, it is hard work - but never give in to the single worst piece of legislation ever written. It must be repealed - if the 18th Amendment was passed in 1919 and it was repealed by the 21st Amendment in 1933, bad laws can be repealed. All during the era of Prohibition, alcohol continued to be used and sold in speakeasies. Hard liquor was made by stills and/or imported across the river from Canada - ask the Kennedys.

Until this repugnant law is repealed, defunded, or somehow struck down every effort should be made to not comply with it, and challenges to its many parts should be made - either legislatively or in the courts. If Beohner can´t put up that kind of fight, as Clint Eastwood says: "we´ve got to let him go."

Every man has a price. Or so they say. What is the price for giving up all your principles, and then selling your countrymen into slavery? Do you do this because you are "turned evil?" Is it inevitable in politics and career managing given today´s press? Does your conscience change accordingly over time so treason and compromise become easier and easier? Or can it be quick, and legally defensible, the way Roberts handled it? Is it a gift from the God of this World? Is it a love of Death? Is it Mystery Babylon the Whore? Is it getting even, as some men hate a whole race for nothing? Is it, in the end, a cup of coffee and a pastrami sandwich?

When a party nominates the likes of Hoover, Landon, Wilkie, Dewey, Nixon, the Bush buffons, McCain, Dole, and doofus Romney; it is certainly not a conservative party. Boner is just another DC republicrat jackass.

#18. Put directly and simply, Lincoln was on the mark, as a house divided against itself cannot stand. The R rank and file has been and remains center-right while the leadership since WH Taft is No. East Liberal/Progressive, as my list attests. Cons and R´s are two different species. Until this reality is fully grasped, meaningful change is impossible.

The Poverty Hoax
American Thinker, by John Dietrich    Original Article
Posted By: DW626- 4/8/2014 7:54:23 AM     Post Reply
A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

The clumsiness and incoherence, if not madness, of this administration’s foreign policies are creating havoc around the world. No one wrapped up the story of the chaos better than Sultan Knish did this week: When Bush left office at the end of his second term, the region was mostly stable aside from Iran’s nuclear program. By the time Obama had finished his first term, it was in a state of endless war. [snip] Bush had sought to stabilize the Middle East by removing Saddam.

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran. The one place we intervened was Iraq, with

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood. The Egyptian government treated her less courteously than did the Democrat legislators who regularly let her and her pinko buddies disrupt Congressional hearings.

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

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

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

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

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
