Boehner ´Confident´ House GOP
Will Re-Elect Him as Speaker

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 4/8/2014 2:10:40 PM

House Speaker John Boehner addressed the behind-the-scenes maneuvering by House conservatives mobilizing against his reelection as Speaker on Monday, telling Fox News host Megyn Kelly that he´s “confident” he´ll win reelection next year. “Some are suggesting you are not going to be the Speaker, even if the GOP retains control [of the House] in 2014,” Kelly told Boehner in an interview on her program The Kelly File on Monday evening. “I’ve heard those rumors before,” Boehner responded, seemingly referring to an unsuccessful coup attempt at the beginning of this Congress. “What say you?” Kelly followed up. “Listen, my members know me and they know

Comments:
The Republican Establishment reminds me of the Coca-Cola Company of the early 90´s and their absolute refusal to recognize that the "New Coke" was a joke. The more they tried to tell consumers it was better then Coca-Cola Classic, the more consumers shook their heads and laughed in amazement and switched to Pepsi.

Got Tea?

Guess again Johnny Boy. Your time as speaker has reached it´s expiration date. You, Cantor, and the other wimps need to go. We need people like Trey Gowdy in charge.

Well, Town Cryer...I´m "confident" your sorry arse is going to be taken down a notch or two. First order of business is to defeat every Democrat POS that´s up for election in BOTH chambers. 2nd order of business is to send all of you "Go along to get along and keep my super perks flowing in" RINO traitors back from whence you came. I look forward to the day when there´s a picture of you and all your "associates" cowering in a fetal position, crying your eyes out, while waiting for the Tar and Feather Group to call your name.

I imagine he is correct and suspect that all the necessary promises and threats made behind closed doors have been issued.

With everything that is going wrong while these idiots (both democrats and republicans) are in charge; I still find it amazing people have such party loyalty that they keep re-electing the same crew.

I though Kelly did a good and revealing interview of the tan man. Boehner strikes me as a man who very much knows he must adapt --- or appear to adapt --- or be replaced.

My biggest problem is why did he never put select committees together on the various scandals. It´s like he wanted the political heat on Obama but not the prosecutor´s light. The babble of too many committees pursuing the same scandal was a real break for obama and his regime of wise guys who stonewalled and slithered away from accountability.

Pat Roberts Claims His Children Attended

Fending off persistent questions about his residency status, Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) noted in a radio interview last week that “my kids went to school” in Dodge City, Kansas, as a means of demonstrating his ties to the state he represents roughly 1,400 miles away in Washington, D.C. But a close inspection of that claim shows his children only attended school there for about three months, and attended and graduated from high school in Alexandria, Virginia, although they later attended college in Kansas. “We have declared Dodge [City] our residency; our kids went to school there.

Super PAC commits to spend $2 million

A Democrat-backed super PAC called Maine Forward has committed to spending $2 million against Republican Gov. Paul LePage and for Democratic nominee Mike Michaud in the run-up to the Pine Tree State´s elections this fall, according to the Bangor Daily News. LePage is a top target for the Democratic Governors Association, and a report published in Talking Points Memo that he discussed executing Democrats in a meeting with a sovereign citizen group called the Aroostook Watchmen have only burnished their hopes. LePage said that execution was not a discussion item in the meetings. But regardless, the news didn’t do him

Back in 2012, I shared a sadly amusing image about how the modern political process has degenerated into two wolves and a sheep voting what to have for lunch. I was making an argument in that column against majoritarianism (and that is a critical issue, as explained in this video), but there’s also a very mportant moral component to this debate. Walter Williams addresses this issue in his latest column. He starts by asking a hypothetical question. Suppose I saw a homeless, hungry elderly woman huddled on a heating grate in the dead of winter. To help the woman, I ask somebody for

Mark Levin Unveils Three-Step Border Plan

On Wednesday, conservative scholar and talk radio host Mark Levin unveiled his three-step border security plan on a dry erase board on Fox News´ Hannity. Appearing in a segment after pro-amnesty Republican Karl Rove, Levin, the conservative who was Attorney General Ed Meese´s chief of staff in the Reagan Administration, held up a dry erase board that read, "Deport! Secure Border! Cut $ From Foreign GOVTS!" Levin said his plan was a "humane program" that would discourage illegal immigrant children from making the treacherous journey to America so that they are not killed or raped. And he emphasized that America

Why Mitt Romney should not be

Lately there has been a lot of buzz about having Mitt Romney as the GOP nominee in 2016. And there can be little doubt that many things Mitt talked about from 2007 to 2012 have come true (crumbling of Iraq, Putin being our number one geo-political foe, Obamacare not being workable). And while there was no bigger supporter of Mitt Romney than I was (for the record I was a member of a group called Evangelical Christians for Mitt Romney and I also managed several precincts in Shenandoah County Virginia for the Romney campaign during the 2012 primary) the fact

Mississippi´s US Senate race has devolved into a shower of accusations piled on state Republican stalwarts of secret donations and vote-buying, and I´m rather enjoying it. Go ahead, Tea Party, I say. It´s time to shine some light on how elections are done in my state, and everywhere – even if it takes some whack-a-doo right-wingers to flip that switch. Though it´s been fun to watch the GOP establishment come under fire after Thad Cochran´s razor-thin primary runoff win last month, I´m mostly happy that others are finally clueing into what I´ve long known exists: evidence that elections in our state

After a disappointing primary season, the Tea Party is getting set for a revival going into the fall general elections with one of the nation´s leading movement representatives, the 2.5 million member TheTeaParty.net, bringing back its top strategist to run the organization. On Tuesday, the Washington-based group announced the appointment of Niger Innis as executive director. The prominent black conservative and civil rights activist ran an insurgent House campaign in Las Vegas, Nev., but came in second. Innis, who challenged the election results, was the TheTeaParty.net chief strategist before taking leave to campaign. “After a raucous congressional run, I’m pleased to rejoin my

Life is hard. It´s harder still when an entire class of people with their hands out stands between you and success. Unfortunately, that´s increasingly the problem, all around the world. A recent New York Times piece tells the story of a Greek woman´s efforts to survive that country´s financial collapse. After losing her job, she tried to start a pastry business, only to find the regulatory environment impossible. Among other things, they wanted her to pay the business´s first two years of taxes up front, before it had taken in a cent. When the business failed, her lesson was this: "I,

Quasi-lobbyist runs as earmarker
in Kansas GOP primary
Washington Examiner, by Timothy P. Carney    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 7/6/2014 6:34:22 PM     Post Reply
Former Rep. Todd Tiahrt is a man on a mission — to reclaim the Republican Party for earmarkers. Tiahrt represented Kansas´ 4th district for 16 years, and for 14 of those years he sat on the House Appropriations Committee. From that perch, Tiahrt was a prolific porker, dealing out earmarks as if they were playing cards. In 2010, when Sen. Sam Brownback stepped down to run for Governor, Tiahrt ran for the open Senate seat but lost the GOP primary to his House colleague Jerry Moran. Lawyer and businessman Mike Pompeo took Tiahrt's place. Now, Tiahrt wants his seat back and is challenging Pompeo in the 2014

Sen. Pat Roberts Clicks Heels

"Every time I get an opponent"

At the eleven minute mark of this 15 minute interview, Kansas Senator Pat Roberts is reduced to a stumbling, bumbling pile of a 47 years in Washington incumbent who can´t manage to coherently explain why he doesn´t actually live in Kansas anymore. And perhaps the worst of it is when he admits that he does click his heels together to go back to Kansas on occasion .... seemingly only when he gets an opponent. Roberts may not have distinguished himself as that much of a wizard in D.C. over the years but if a slot opens up in Oz, perhaps Dorothy will consider him as a write in after hearing this embarrassing performance.

The New Aristocracy
Bretbart´s Big Government, by Ron Maxwell    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 7/5/2014 4:56:13 PM     Post Reply
In 1776 Americans declared themselves independent of more than arbitrary rule by a distant monarch. They also severed the ties of aristocracy. This was in itself a revolutionary notion. It meant that political power, its attendant privilege and economic advantages would no longer be transferred by the blood. Earldoms, dukedoms, and kingdoms were banished from the territory and from the future of the American people. The citizen became the self-identifying unit of self-rule. The generation of English colonists who gathered together in the summer of 1776 to declare their independence from the English crown knew that they had exhausted all other remedies.

It would be a lot easier for conservatives to tolerate the sanctimony of Republicans In Name Only (RINOs) if they weren’t so hypocritical — or in the case of Mississippi RINOs — despicably hypocritical. ‘Moderate’ Republicans never tire of telling us conservative extremists how they are inclusive and ready to reach across the aisle to get things done. While we are exclusive and alienate and people that disagree with us. Well the Sen. Thad Cochran campaign got things done in Mississippi all right and in the process of building their ‘big tent’ party the RINOs turned race–baiting 180 degrees. Formerly in Mississippi and

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
