‘There’s No Revolt, No Coup,’
Say House Republicans

National Review Online, by Robert Costa

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/18/2012 3:56:04 PM

The House GOP caucus remains supportive of Speaker John Boehner, even though he is open to tax-rate increases. “There is no revolt, no coup,” says a conservative House member, who requested anonymity to speak freely. “Boehner is going to compromise, but people recognize that he’s in a tough spot.” In a conference meeting this morning at the Capitol, Boehner told his colleagues that he would like to extend current tax rates for “99.5 percent” of taxpayers, and let the rates expire on those making more than $1 million. Boehner acknowledged that it wasn’t optimal, but the best “plan B.”

I´m thinking the same thing, #2.

I left the democrats during the Cartr Administration when I realized I was in the wrong party.

Now, I´m starting to wonder if the republicans are the right party for me.

"Read my lips, No new taxes". Yea, been there, heard that from another republican who backed down to the democrats.

Wuss! Cut taxes, not raise them! Cut spending!
Simple easy to understand. pass the cuts and send it to Harry Reid.

Sit back as it is the democrat hands.

John Boehner and other wuss rinos wring their hands over this. They have the vapors.

It is the democrats that have spent and spent. These rinos go along with it. the only thing they are worried about is how they look. Not the damage it does to people and this country.

The weakest man always loses. Time to replace our weakling. Imagine a punk like Zerobama kicking sand in Boehner´s face and Boehner says kick a little less sand and I´ll let you continue to do it.

Compromise, John, has gotten us 16 trillion in debt.

Compromise, John, is not the answer.

I was phoned by the RNC looking for some $ on Friday, Monday, and today. I asked each time if John Boehner was still speaker, "they" replied "of course." I´ve informed them each time, call me back when he is voted out and replaced by a True Conservative. I think today they FINALLY got my message....

I really don´t care if this tax hike goes through as long as he gets spending cuts--- real, irreversible, meaningful spending cuts. If he can´t get cuts, he should walk away.

I am not sure about the merits, but raising taxes without a budget at all is unsound. No increase in debt limit until a budget.
Republicans also seem too quick to shoot the survivors and bury the wounded.

Three years without a budget. No money until you pass a budget, no raise of the debt ceiling no nothing. But no one has the nuts to say this. Fire the lot of ´em.

Boehner is such a dolt. He has to be replaced. Most of us have no problem with raising taxes, but we cannot accept this without a spending reduction. Why can´t Boehner understand this. Boehner has to go.

Boehner, like all DC politicians, is so brainwashed by all his years in Washington, his only thought is getting through `the process`. That is what is important to him.

First, Boehner should let all the rates expire. Return to the Clinton era of tax rates, then cut all spending to same Clinton era levels.

I think democrats need the republicans to save the 98% because they´d be increasing that margin to around 90%, and then taking the blame for increasing large sections of tax-payers.


No extensions on debt ceiling either. It´s you´re only leverage.

FTA: “Boehner is going to compromise, but people recognize that he’s in a tough spot.”
No, Mr/Ms ´Anonymous conservative House member´, America is in a tough spot. The speaker isn´t representing his constituents very well at all, and needs to be replaced.
Unless you´re implying he is being blackmailed to prevent him from doing what is necessary. Then he needs to resign and let someone who is free to do what is constitutional, what is right for America, assume the house speaker´s position.

The Wet Noodle party needs to go bye bye. Why are they even talking? It´s ludicrous, no budget for nearly 4 years, astronomical debt and rising, not a word about cutting spending just ploys to gouge more out of Joe Six Pack. Fie to all of them in Washington DC -the new party is being born to sweep this lot out once and for all.

I contacted my GOP Rep this morning to tell him to vote no deal, let us go over the cliff. Can you think of a worse person than John Boehner to be leader of the GOP at a time such as this? He is a joke. I wish he would just declare himself a Dem because that is who he sides with.

If they are gonna vote like Democrats, then we might as well vote for Democrats.

Boehner is completely underestimating how he is about to give the Dems back the House in 2014 for acting just like them.

Our elected officials need to be sent home for good.

We found out what kind of "patriots" Ryan, McCarthy and Cantor turned out to be. Stand behind the feckless Speaker no matter how he messes up. Very good. Every one of these guys are interested in their OWN careers, not the country, the debt or the voters who put them in office.

What would a Mitch
McConnell-led Senate look like?
Washington Post, by Paul Kane    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:08:09 PM     Post Reply
It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

The Problem with Rand Paul
Commentary Magazine, by Peter Wehner    Original Article

In his column earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens laid out his case against Rand Paul becoming the GOP’s presidential nominee. It was a powerful indictment and perhaps one worth building on. Mr. Stephens highlighted what he believes would be some of the obstacles facing Senator Paul, beginning with his long political association with Jack Hunter, alias the “Southern Avenger,” who among other things wrote an April 13, 2004 column titled “John Wilkes Booth Was Right.” The “Southern Avenger” said this: Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger

EDITOR’S NOTE: Fergus Reid Buckley, the youngest brother of William F. Buckley Jr., and founder of the Buckley School of Public Speaking, died this week. The following article is his remembrance of actress Ava Gardner.I was deeply saddened by the death of Ava Gardner. At one time, I guess I was about as close to her as anyone outside her immediate family. I first met her (I believe it was in connection with the filming of 55 Days at Peking) while lunching at La Puerta de Hierro Country Club near Madrid. She was at the next table. With an absentminded

Nothing to see here folks, move along. That was the verdict of Mayor Marty Walsh and Police Commissioner William Evans on the latest “performance artist” to plunge the city in turmoil.

Of course not.

At any one time hundreds of thousands of us are cocooned in pressurised cabins scything through the cold upper reaches of the troposphere. Soon enough, this figure will rise to a million: a million passengers, flown safely, if not always comfortably, across countries and continents, and with little call for comment. Before engines could lift heavier-than-air machines convincingly off the ground, any attempt at flight had been dangerous, and yet for hundreds of years, adventurers strapped wings to their arms, and leapt off hilltops and towers in the vain hope of flying. Even when a part of the science of flight

Max Blumenthal, like others on the far-Left, jumped on the July 2011 Norwegian massacre of 77 dead and 319 injured to impugn the counter-jihadi right. His screed, “Anders Behring Breivik, a perfect product of the Axis of Islamophobia” included this sentence: The rhetoric of the characters who inspired Breivik, from Pam Geller to Robert Spencer to Daniel Pipes, was so eliminationist in its nature that it was perhaps only a matter of time before someone put words into action. In other words, we three were to blame for the massacre. A year later, Blumenthal returned to the same theme, this time focusing

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

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

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
