John Boehner must
cut loose the Tea Party

Washington Post, by Greg Sargent

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 9/11/2013 3:12:44 PM

Here’s the read among Congressional Dems on this fall’s fiscal fights. At some point, House GOP leaders will have to pass an important bill with a lot of Democratic support — stiff-arming the Tea Party in the process. GOP leaders are trying to defer that moment for as long as possible, but there’s just no clear way around it. Multiple reports this morning tell us House GOP leaders are struggling to round up support among House Republicans for their new strategy for the fall. They are proposing a vote on a measure that would temporarily fund the government at current sequester

It is time to cut Boehner loose and replace him with a non Rino. Funding extensions should only be considered if Obama Care funds are stripped out entirely and not in a separate Bill. His stance on Syria shows his true lack of concern for individual voters. He is bought and paid by the elites.

The TParty needs to cut itself loose from the repubs. If I understand the TParty´s fundamental beliefs correctly, they have nothing in common with the existing Republican Party.

No--the Tea Party must cut "establishment" Republicans loose. Remember how Ronald Reagan said we wouldn´t negotiate with terrorists? I´m not saying the Democrats are terrorists, but there is no point in negotiating with them because they are not going to give in. It is only about whether the Republicans are willing to compromise their principles. The House is our last defense against Obama´s disastrous policies. If Boehner can´t hold firm, he should be replaced.

I agree with #5.

If the Republican establishment keeps this up, they will not only have to fear Tea Party challengers in their districts, but Tea Party Congress-people challenging their leadership in Congress.

Are you listening, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell?

What Boehner needs to do is demand the Democrats accept new sources of energy development, approval of Keystone, and hold spending levels at no more than 5% from previous year´s funding.

The new sources of energy and Keystone would open up new jobs and revenues that will help pay for the current gov´t.

They need to point out that Democrats keep trying to squeeze more from those who are paying, not just the rich, and need to expand the pie. Help put more people to work in good jobs not just those low=paying jobs Obama has "created".

Boehner and Cantor are conniving to find a way to vote against Obamacare while voting to continue funding it!!
These 2 lieing snakes are trying to pull a fast one on the American People. McConnell is also a snake in the grass.
TEA party House members are being threatened IF they want to vote as the people who elected them wish.
Watch them carefully.

First and foremost, the only reason Boehner is currently the Speaker of the House, is because of the bitter clinger Tea Partiers. This is something that I think he needs to be reminded of, every minute of every day. Although I think that is something he and the establishment RINOs already know and deeply resent.
He needs to learn that he disrespects us at his political peril.
On another note, every article that I read like this, just points out to me that far from being the inconsequential movement that the left insists the Tea Party is. The Tea Party has the left very afraid.

Yes, we must listen to Greg Sargent, a member of journOlist. I am sure he has the best interests of the GOP in mind.

Sadly, too many GOPers like McCain, Grahamnesty, and Cantor will read this and nod their RINO´S heads.

Defund Obamacare while we still have a chance. If the people are behind us we don´t ´need the Democrats´ for anything. We have the power of the purse in the House. With O´s current weak actions we may even prevent a shutdown over the debt ceiling. Stand up for the nation and the Constitution.

Boehner & Co. need to understand that the main reason they won in 2010 was not because they were so popular, or because America fell in love with them. It was one reason: TO REPEAL OR DEFUND OBAMACARE!!

If they will not follow all the way through with this, then we have no need for them. Our patience is running quite thin. It is now or never.

Make it clear that the Obamacare will not be funded until the Obama administration is prepared to implement it according to the letter of the law. They will not be ready for the employer mandate, for the verification of income needed to assess the premium tax credit, nor to provide security against identity theft. When they are fully ready, the House can consider funding Obamacare as part of a regular budget.

We currently have well over 100 different political parties.

Most folks overlook that not realizing that for all intents and purposes the state Republican and Democrat party apparatuses are certainly able to operate as independent parties.

Not all states have significant numbers of TEAParty adherents. Some states have large numbers of them.

The easiest way to deal with the question is state by state. Be good to set up a new Republican Presidential Nominating Committee as well to replace the Republican National Committee ~ after all, the only task they have is running a convention every 4 years!

Then, the state parties vote to recognize the new committee while simultaneously de-recognizing the old committee.

We have a pretty good idea which way the RINOs would jump. We even know where many of the donors would go. But I doubt those guys, on their own, can pull the voters! This is, after all, a Conservative majority party.

The Repubilican establishment is driving us, the base, away. They discourage us, because they do nothing to correct the problems of this overbearing government. Spending is the problem along with fraudulent distributioon of the people´s money to special interests and outright fraudsters. I am more than sure that this could be cleaned up if they wanted to; it is just to easy to keep the train wreck rolling along until the collapse.

I support the Tea Party because they support he Constitution. Better to shut it down than to have to tear it down.

This is just Democrat propaganda. If the establishment Republican leadership stiff arms the mass of conservative Republicans in Congress look for a lot of Republican primary challenges when the establishment Republicans attempt to run for re-election next year. That will not be good for the establishment Republicans, just look what happened in the Colorado recall elections yesterday to see what the grass roots can do.

In the Arab world throwing a shoe is considered an insult, and George W. Bush famously had one hurled at him during a Baghdad press conference in 2008. Less explicable was the pump thrown at Hillary Clinton last week during a speech at a Las Vegas casino. "Is that somebody throwing something at me? Is that part of Cirque du Soleil?" Mrs. Clinton quipped after dodging the projectile. "My goodness, I didn´t know that solid waste management was so controversial." Mrs. Clinton ought to pay a visit to New Jersey, but—hold on: solid waste management? Yes, Mrs. Clinton was speaking at the

The missing Malaysia Airlines plane was ´thrown around like a fighter jet´ just after it lost contact with the authorities in a bid to dodge radar, Malaysian military investigators believe. Flight MH370, which disappeared more than a month ago en route to Beijing, is thought to have climbed to heights of 45,000ft - 10,000ft above its normal altitude - before plummeting to just below 5,000ft. The new lead in the investigation comes as the methodical search being carried out in the Indian Ocean continues amid fears that the jet´s black box may have run out of battery.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

Well, that didn´t take long. As my colleague Edward Malnick reports, the first gay Church of England priest – a canon, no less – today married his boyfriend. Canon Jeremy Pemberton, 58, a divorced hospital chaplain and father of five, wed his long-term partner Laurence Cunnington, 51. We´re not told where, but obviously it wasn´t in an C of E church. That´s against the law. But they may well be able to have their marriage blessed in church because that´s only "against the rules" as opposed to illegal.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

The departure of Kathleen Sebelius from President Barack Obama’s cabinet removes a focal point for criticism over Obamacare’s troubled rollout, right at a moment when the White House can blunt attacks with enrollment numbers that exceeded targets. Senate confirmation hearings on the president’s choice to succeed Sebelius as Health and Human Services secretary, budget director Sylvia Mathews Burwell, will give Republicans days of media exposure for their criticism of a program that remains unpopular. Those hearings will now be held months ahead of midterm congressional elections, helping diminish the impact on voters. Sebelius’s departure also addresses demands from some Democrats for a change

BUNKERVILLE -- The gathering of rancher Cliven Bundy´s cattle in northeast Clark County has been stopped by the director of the Bureau of Land Management. Bundy is meeting this morning with Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie to discuss a possible solution to his dispute with the BLM. Metro Officer Jesse Roybal confirmed that Gillespie was in the Bunkerville area this morning to meet with Bundy. The BLM had been using contract cowboys to round up Bundy´s 900 head of cattle that have been grazing over 600,000 square acres in northeast Clark County for more than 20 years without his payment of grazing fees.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little
