Secret Ballot Could End
Boehner´s Speakership

Breitbart Big Government, by Mike Flynn

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/23/2012 1:10:51 AM

The future leadership of the House GOP conference may be decided by a procedural motion on the morning of January 3rd. When the new 113th Congress convenes that day, the first order of business will be to elect a Speaker of the House. As my colleague Matthew Boyle reported, however, some GOP members are planning to preempt this vote with a motion to conduct the election of Speaker by secret ballot. If that were to happen, John Boehner may face a real fight to retain the Speaker´s gavel. But if a member introduces that resolution for a secret ballot,

Your Headline ... to God´s plan... A Must Read!

[God is patient and never in a hurry... but God, America is in the balance... May we please have Col. Allen West as our new Speaker... for such a time as this...

Were the prerequisites that the Speaker did NOT need to be a Member of the House for a time like now... ]

I agree, dump Boehner! Paul Ryan or Newt Gringrich would be a lot better. Newt would be my choice.

not exactly sure you need to be a member of the House to be Speaker:

“The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers.”
— Article I, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution

Boehner´s clumsiness and incoherence on the fiscal cliff are one thing but having reprisals on his own members who don´t tow the line is something else.

No matter what kind of stupor the House republicans are in,Obama still needs them to allocate money,so they have more leverage than people think.

Obama and his henchmen desperately want the republicans to cave on taxes because they think it´ll be the end of them as a party.

I just want a speaker who doesn´t negotiate with himself in front of every microphone available in the capitol building. That drives me up a wall when Boehner starts discussing all his various options with reporters.

Let me say this again, John: Reporters are not your friends!

Exactly #10. The Speaker does not need to be a member of the house. I suggested Newt yesterday. I also believe that the Majority Leader and Majority Whip does not have be a member of the house. My suggestions for these positions would be Allen West and Herman Cain. We need people that will fight back.

Oh, come on! With the last election, didn´t this country signal it wanted more incompetent leadership? And, with the universal support for jfkerry, can´t we now acknowledge that we have a congress full of gutless, immoral scum? Boehner will remain because the dems/pubbies (can you tell the difference?)have decided they like the way things are going.

The Constitution does not require that the Speaker be an elected Member of Congress, but no non-member has ever been elected to the office. Make history. VOTE NEWT. A proven entity.

Paul Ryan or someone who could articulate the debt issues and the insanity of the spending is what we need. Boehner, like the RNC, is only in this for the power grab, committee chairs, and perks that come with the office. A Tea Party revolt in Congress is what we need from Day 1 (actually two weeks before) Obama´s 2nd term begins. Let´s shut this operation down and wield an iron fist in the House. Ryan should also take on and expose Harry Reid. Let´s expose him as the real crook and union crony he is!

We need someone that can make the Low Information Voter (Obama´s crowd) understand what is going on.....explain it in terms that a 1st grader can understand. This person also needs to be able to stand up to Obama, Pelosi, Reid, etc. He or she should be able to blast these people for what they are and not feel any guilt when doing it. I recommend Newt.

As a side note, they are also required to determine if the President-elect is qualified to hold that office, under Amendment 20, para. 3.

His father was a British citizen, and all his children are by law British citizens, regardless of where they were born. Obama carries dual citizenship.

Under the qualifications for President (Article II, Section 1) all any one carrying British citizenship could hold the office of President, if they were born before 1788, when the Constitution went into force.

A simple majority can prevent him from becoming President.

This writer comes across like a breathless terrier anticipating a t-bone steak that ain´t gonna be thrown his way.

They´ll never elect a non-incumbent to the Speakership,regardless of what the Constitution has to say about eligibility. It´s just not in the nature of the institution. And wasn´t Gingrich the guy who, by his own admission, went all squishy inside when in the presence of Bill Clinton?

Don´t kid yourselves - a strident, ideology totin´ Speaker would give the MSM a field day and make a terrific foil for Obama. He would not, as some folks here might hope, be the magic change agent who´d awaken America from her stupor. Be glad there are not enough potential votes in the House to elect such an individual.

Boehner told obama that he got some tax increases and asked him what he was going to offer back and obama said that nothing was the answer.

Boehner should have found the nearest camera and stated that instead of having it leak out.

Actual quote:
At one point, according to notes taken by a participant, Mr. Boehner told the president, "I put $800 billion [in tax revenue] on the table. What do I get for that?"

"You get nothing," the president said. "I get that for free."

Boehner should have walked out.

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies awarded about $415,000 in contracts to a license plate-tracking company before Homeland Security leaders dropped a plan for similar work amid privacy complaints. Federal offices such as the Forest Service and the U.S. Air Force´s Air Combat Command chose Livermore, Calif.-based Vigilant Solutions to provide access to license plate databases or tools used to collect plate information, according to government procurement records compiled by Bloomberg. Vigilant, a closely held company, has received such work since 2009. In February, Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security

WASHINGTON— A Western official says the United States is considering deploying about 150 soldiers for military exercises to begin in Poland and Estonia in the next few weeks. The exercises would follow Russia´s buildup of forces near its border with Ukraine and its annexation last month of Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said earlier this week that the U.S. is looking for ways to reassure its NATO allies of its strong commitment to collective defense. The Western official says ground exercises in Poland and Estonia would last about two weeks but that such exercises would continue on a

This week’s POLITICO Magazine contains an uncharacteristic show of gratitude from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to President Barack Obama. Under the headline “A bipartisan message to Iran,” the senator thanks the president for signing his S 2195 bill into law, which prevents anyone who has engaged in espionage or terrorism against the U.S. from gaining entry to the country via the United Nations. “Thanks to President Obama for joining a unanimous Congress and signing S 2195 into law,” Cruz begins his piece.

U.S. Border Control agents detained 147 people suspected of being in the country illegally from a stash house Thursday afternoon in Alton — shortly after 81 people were found hiding in makeshift huts in McAllen. The 147 people were discovered in a house at the 8900 block of North Bentsen Palm Drive. Border Patrol spokesman Danny Tirado said he didn’t recall the exact time of the bust, but said it was not too long after the 81 people were found in a brushy area of McAllen northwest of Sprague and North 10th Street about 1 p.m. The 147 people detained

Bunkersville, Nevada — Cliven Bundy’s ranch, recently the site of a tense stand-off that started over two weeks ago between the federal government and the Bundy family, had morphed into a good old-fashioned family picnic complete with live country music, hamburgers, and hotdogs Friday. A week after the Bureau of Land Management’s armed force left Bunkersville, Bundy and his supporters continue to make the family’s case relating to Bundy’s right to graze his cattle on public land his family has been on for many years. Bundy told Breitbart News the only communication he has received from the BLM recently has been

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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.

Lee´s "dishonorable side."

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
