Heritage Action: Boehner picks fight
to clear way for immigration

The Hill, by Mario Trujillo

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 12/14/2013 1:19:11 PM

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is picking a fight with outside conservative groups to clear the way for immigration reform, Heritage Action CEO Michael Needham charged on Friday. “The Speaker is trying to turn this into a boring fight between outside groups and himself so we are not having a policy debate about whether or not this is a good deal,” Needham said of the budget deal approve by the House on Thursday. He said Boehner wanted to divert attention from the substance of the two-year budget deal by picking the fight. "This deal increases spending, this deal increases taxes. And

Personally I think that amnesty is going to happen no matter what is said or done. I think most agree that it is inevitable. But the Republican Establishment is forcing it to happen before the border is secure convinced they need the Hispanic vote now because Tea Party minded people are leaving them in droves. A recipe for disaster.

Té conseguido?

Agreed, OP. I believe both parties want a "redo" of the white middle class for more tractable voters. To hell with the culture and what made America great. The tragedy will be the ultimate demise of my county. The joy will be the elimination of the republican party with its elites and traitors.

The number of new Hispanic voters that the Republicans would pick up after caving on a big amnesty is not going to help them if conservatives stay home on Election Day.

It depends on how the Republicans define immigration reform. Facilitating liberal Democrat designed immigration reform will amount to long term political suicide for the Republicans and hand the Democrats tens of millions of new foreign born voters in the years ahead.

Heritage is correct. The republican party will fold & the liberals Boehner, Ryan & Cantor will be blamed, not the tea party or Heritage. Boehner is going off the deep end & no one is attempting to stop him. All this so abccbsnbccnn, NY Times & WP will love them, throwing the base to the wind.

Boehner has been attacked viciously for months and months. Talk radio hosts and others have been relentless in their attacks, personal and substantive.

Finally he strikes back and now it´s ´how dare he´.

Perhaps Boehner deserves the criticism aka Attacks?
Any amnesty to illegals would be the final straw.
Open Borders destroys our sovereignty.
We should adopt Mexicos policy - arrest, imprison and deport.
Mexico will benefit from fracking- by allowing their elites to export people to US and send back r bilions in remittances while taking US services - we give them a safety valve that enables elite to keep them poor.
The young people are waking up.
Don´t blame them for voting for Obama - young, exotic and tan- compared to old cranky McCain and Romney - Romneycare - whats the DIFFERENCE?
Republicans forgot adage- If you don´t stand for something, you will fall for nothing.
$60 Billion in additional revenue called "fees" is still a tax increase.
The Sequester should be kept - Ryan and Boehner betrayed the Taxpayer.

#4, the comments I´ve read have questioned whether Boehner is committed to representing the people or the establishment. He has answered the question. He supported a back room deal which wipes out the only meager spending cuts enacted into law and increases spending for defense by decreasing the retirement plans for the men and women who have already served our country. He held the vote before the details could leak out, but only after criticizing organizations that had uncovered part of the deal.

Read the Facebook & Fox Nation comments, 99% are against Boehner, however abccbsnbccnn WP, WH, NY Times love him. Now you know where his priorities are, not with the republican party. The vile energy he used against conservative the other day showed the real Boehner . When was the last time you heard Boehner raise his voice against a dem? He´s acts like someone off their meds. My guess is the dems bought him drinks the day he went off on the conservatives.

When I read comments in defense of Boehner, the phrase "the truth hurts" comes to mind.

Increasing spending and increasing taxes hurts all Americans. Both are part of this deal, no matter how the elite permanent political ruling class Republicans attempt to spin it.

Heritage Action CEO Michael Needham is 31 yr old glorified intern
who has never worked in the private sector
and lives in the paranoid , but, well paid bubble that
he and DeMint have created at the formerly respected Heritage Foundation.
The paranoia and fear they spread is designed to agitate people , so they will contribute to the Heritage Action .
All summer they told town halls that they needed contributions to make the government shutdown happen.
And as soon as the shutdown happened-Obama would immediately agree to defund Obamacare.
I´m surprised they didn´t try and sell swampland while they were at it.
DeMint flys in a private jet and they are expensive.
Did Boehner say he was sick of Heritage Action
specifically ?
Did he pick a fight ? No.
He finally responded to the years of trash talk and lies from Heritage Action.

The only problem with #13´s screed above is that Heritage and Needham have history and Google on their side.

"Did Boehner say he was sick of Heritage Action
specifically ?
Did he pick a fight ? No.

Google search using "Boehner attacks" and here is the first result:

"On Wednesday, Boehner issued a brief aside, accusing Heritage Action and others of “using” younger, less experienced GOP lawmakers. On Thursday, he delivered a more expansive critique, acknowledging that he felt pushed.

“It’s just that, you know, there just comes to a point when some people step over the line,” he said. “You know, when you criticize something and you have no idea what you’re criticizing, it undermines your credibility.”

Do you even think about what you write or is it just cut and past directly from Boehner´s staff emails?

Google is certainly NOT your friend.

The 2010 wave election that provided Boehner the opportunity to be Speaker was about more than Obamacare. It was also about illegal immigration and the intractable national debt. Boehner attempts to emphasize the first motivation so that he can betray us on the other two.

We know what the problems are. What are the solutions?

The GOP has betrayed us far too often. My vote is for a new Conservative party.

Give it up, #14. No one accuses you of copying and pasting. You ought to observe the same courtesy. It really is possible that someone holds a view different from yours and that person is as sincerely motivated as you.

Jim DeMint was, once upon a time, a man I listened to and admired. But, he has sold out. I believe he has ruined Heritage´s carefully constructed reputation. Now, Heritage is just another political group, much as you and your friends accuse Karl Rove of being.

DeMint is a Conservative, Rove is a Moderate thus I am against Rove and all for DeMint. I would never deny Rove a voice but I sure as heck will call him what he is. You Moderates just can´t handle Conservatives any more than I can handle Moderates.

Thank you for lecturing me that I shouldn´t post an opinion by sharing your opinion that everyone has a right to a different opinion, except me apparently.

As to cutting and pasting, please accuse away! I plead guilty.

Matter of fact I just cut and pasted a quote from a article that destroyed an obvious lie by not only cutting and pasting an actual quote that was claimed to not have been said, I even pasted its source and how I found it.

Cliven Bundy marched into my life one Friday morning in January 1992 in a protest bound for a federal courthouse in Las Vegas. He held up one side of a street-width banner that asked, “Has the West been won or has the fight just begun?” To my great relief, just as Bundy promised, nearly 200 ranchers from all over the state marched behind him, yelling “Property rights!” Nearly a mile later, the marchers fell silent and filed into the courtroom where Wayne Hage of Pine Creek Ranch faced arraignment for the felony of cleaning brush out of his ditches without a

The Republican challenger to Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., thinks nobody should spend 47 years in Washington. Dr. Milton Wolf, a diagnostic radiologist from the Kansas City area, on Wednesday released a television ad criticizing Roberts for his nearly five decades in the nation´s capital. "After 47 years in Washington, Kansas is a distant memory for Pat Roberts," the ad opens, before pivoting to Wolf´s daily routine as a Kansas doctor. The ad goes on to mention Wolf´s plan to "repeal and replace Obamacare," "fight wasteful spending" and pass congressional term limits. After his tenure, Wolf´s ad promises, he´ll return home to Kansas.

I love that picture from the Bundy Ranch. You know the one that I’m talking about: I’m talking about all of them. I love the horn-handed Cowboys, with real, honest trail dirt on them; I love the American flags; I love the sagebrush; and I love the rebellion-- as in civil, non-violent disobedience. And the question now is, where does this go? Rebellion typically starts after a period of lassitude and hopelessness in the face of overwhelming power. Populations spend years, even decades muttering under their breath about abuses of power, but feel ineffectual to enact real reform. Then one bright day, a fruit stand

In the movie Ben-Hur, Charlton Heston was wrongly accused by government and sentenced to life in prison/slavery. Soldiers marched chained Heston along with other prisoners through the desert without food or water. Heston collapsed, unable to take another step. Jesus was passing by with a small caravan. He walked over and gave Heston a drink of water, which gave Heston the strength to continue. Note: Heston´s unfair ordeal was not over. He would endure much before his release and ultimate victory at the end of the movie. I view the Obama administration’s BLM retreat from bullying rancher Cliven Bundy and the patriots

This ignited some Republican rage and Rand Paul got his chance to respond: “You know, I think he might have been more artful, maybe, in the way he presented this,” said Paul, a Kentucky Republican, said on ABC’s This Week. “But I don’t want to say, ‘oh, he’s terrible for saying this.’ If it were

There is a culture of sleaze in Washington that´s worse than ever.

Two of Nevada’s top elected leaders are riding to the rescue of a rancher whose decades-long range war with the federal government has reached a boiling point in recent days. The federal Bureau of Land Management has surrounded the Clark County ranch of Cliven Bundy with armed officers, helicopters and four-wheel drive vehicles. Last week, they began seizing cattle found grazing on adjacent federal lands in violation of a law meant to protect an endangered desert tortoise. “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans.”

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.
