Over at the American Spectator, Peter Ferrara makes the case for dumping John Boehner as Speaker of the House, and replacing him with . . . well, I’ll get to that part of Peter’s argument in a moment. Peter is one of the unsung workhorses and heroes of conservatism in Washington, battling every day to shore up the cause of lower taxes and spending restraint on Capitol Hill. So in my disagreeing with him, Peter deserves the regard that, I am pleased to note, he pays to Boehner. Bottom line: I think Peter is mistaken

From the article: "And so here we are today, on the cusp of Republicans being forced to repudiate their Reaganite legacy"....

To repudiate Reagan is to disavow the difference better the libs and us. "If salt has lost it savor", as Scripture tells us. "what good is it other than to be trampled upon by our feet"?

To repudiate Reagan is to give up on conservatism itself so that we are indistinguishable from the enemies of liberty and freedom!

John Boehner has the toughest job in Washington, bar none. He is going to be unable to satisfy all the elements in the party. I´m not sure who could do a better job in the current situation.

Obama wants the 3% rate increase on the $200,000+ because that´s where the small and medium sized republican business owners are. The offer of a million plus socks it more to the left.

Obama wants to keep Boehner in a constant lose/lose situation to implode the gop.I honestly don´t now who I´d pick to be speaker,I don´t see where Ryan would be any better.

Obama wants the cliff for political reasons,he couldn´t care less about the health of the country and he´s scared of his base.

The drunk with the spray mulatto camouflage matching the queen Ø´blow the blamer´s gave us a conclusive interview at Jake´s Bar an´ tan saloon early this pm.
It was mostly unintelligible but the gist of the interrogation seemed to center on it´s fear of water and clarity.
We did note a number of low life lobbyist shoveling dough into it´s rice bowl and john kerry
( it served with Hanoi jane and fellow traveler propagandist) smarming close by. Da sasquatch was seen waving it´s furry paws menacingly. The curtsying bath house queen Ø´blo the blamer was rumored to have been in the john, but it´s imam spokes creature declined to reveal which one. Le jaun willyms declines to speak.

To paraphrase walter kommiecrite, “We will have a full report as soon as Pravda, al Qaeda Post and the Iranian Imam Direct (IID) send their clear and balanced talking points.

I have read No. 4´s rant carefully and find it to be gibberish. Perhaps its meaning is too deep for my limited intelligence.

As to the article, I agree with the author and have been saying much the same thing every chance I get.

#2, Respectfully, Mr. Boehner can easily satisfy the elements in his party (GOP)--but he is unable to articulate and satisfy we Americans and patriots of the conservative persuasion--pardon my redundancy.

Vote the (GOP) bums out.

Just as in quite a few other articles from Power Line, it just doesn´t ring conservative enough to me. He sounds like William Kristol.....

Boehner´s job is a piece of cake. He´s been in the Beltway many years and in 2012 didn´t have to worry about being primaried or losing to a dem. as he ran unopposed. Perhaps the dems. like him too. He was happy in the minority, didn´t ask for the new people we gave him in Nov. 2010 and told them to sit down and shut up. Without blinking in 2012 he kicked some of the new people off committee assignments. We gave him people to defund ObamaCare but he likes ObamaCare so he stuck the bill in committee where it stayed for over a year. After the Nov. 2012 election, he gave detailed accounts to the NY Times about how House GOP were subdued and beaten by Obama´s great win, and how his job now is to give Obama what he wants. The debt thing is only happening now because Boehner decided last year to postpone talks til after Obama´s re-election. If Romney had won, he would´ve brought some different people in. New voices would´ve brought scrutiny on Boehner, perhaps pressing him to demand Obama pass a budget before engaging in talks. As it is now, the NY Times writes that Boehner is the de facto head of the Repub. party and is viewed as sage counsel by underlings. So he´s anointed The Boss by the NY Times and under no pressure from Obama since they know they both like big gov.

Social Security stops trying

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
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article

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
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

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

Democrats settle on fairness
issues hoping to avoid a repeat

Washington Post, by Wesley Lowery    Original Article

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

For Hillary Clinton and Boeing,

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center. Overland Park Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes said Sunday afternoon that one person of interest is in custody. The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.” Click here for the poll results.
