Eric Cantor´s defeat throws
Republican leadership into ´total chaos´

Washington Examiner, by David M. Drucker

Original Article

Posted By:zephyrgirl, 6/11/2014 3:06:32 PM

House Republicans were scrambling Tuesday night to determine the fallout on their leadership team and governing agenda after House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was ousted in his GOP primary in Virginia´s 7th district. “I don´t know” was the most common refrain among shocked Republican members, senior House aides and GOP operatives when asked to assess the impact of Cantor´s defeat. The Virginian, the only Jewish Republican in Congress, was widely viewed as the heir apparent to House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and for most of his political career was considered at the forefront of the more conservative party the GOP

Comments:
I had to laugh when I read this article, especially the line about Cantor´s defeat being a big win for Obama and why it was.

What does his being Jewish have to do with anything. Oh, that´s right. Republicans are anti-Semitic, is that it? For over 20 years, the people who kept sending him to Congress didn´t know he was Jewish?

And to think, we had so appreciated his FORMER fine conservative representation in the House! He seemed like a different person then! ...What happened to his principles? Lately he says one thing & does another and voters do not like that duplicity. Nor do they like being taken for granted and their trust abused.

I don´t get it. Why doesn´t Cantor just go get a federal judge to overturn the vote of the people? They do it all the time.

I don´t believe anymore that men like Cantor had all these sterling conservative principles deep down - then "circumstances" changed them. Cantor chose which group to attach himself to once elected and he was always more ambitious than principled.

I´m sure Speaker Boner has a replacement for Cantor all set to go. Another Rino who will continue Cantor´s policy of amnesty and bipartisan accommodation with obama and the Democrats. The Speaker could care less what Cantor constituents want or what "We the people" want. He wants to please the Chamber of Commerce, Democrats and obama.

It is despicable that Cantor´s religion should be insinuated as a reason for his loss. I heard some of the statements earlier this afternoon. The MSM can never stoop too low.

"total chaos" is no change.

The House has limited power acting alone so Boehner & Company can´t be blamed for not controlling Washington or winning every dispute.

But the House leadership should be blamed for deception, hapless behavior, and offering no clear message to the public.

And don´t expect change for seven months.

Saying "Vote for me, the Democrat is worse." is not inspiring, yet it is about all that can be said for many GOP incumbants.

NORWALK -- Police say an all-out brawl occurred on the Island Belle early Sunday while hosting the "Rock Da Boat" summer cruise. At approximately 4 a.m., a frantic phone call was placed to the Norwalk Police Department from a woman who had locked herself in a bathroom in fear of dozens of people fighting on the boat. Officers rushed over to Veteran´s Park, where they found the vessel as it was docking at the city boat launch. As it got closer, officers say they could see a rowdy fight on the lower level of the boat, with patrons screaming and

Elliot Rodger often complained on his YouTube videos that his life wasn´t fair. But, his own social media presence reveals that the son of Hunger Games assistant director Peter Rodger lived a life of privilege. He posted several videos and pictures behind the wheel of his black BMW 328i, a luxury coupe with a starting price tag of nearly $40,000. Rodger, who is believed to have killed six people in Santa Barbara on Friday night because he frustrated that he was still a virgin at age 22, posted a YouTube video of his flight home from a vacation to Britain

Feminists ruin reputation

“The original target of slut-shaming.” That’s what some young feminists now call Monica Lewinsky, who was shamed beginning when these women were in grade school and is still shamed today. That’s an important part of Lewinsky’s long Vanity Fair essay, out Tuesday. She’s indeed been “slut -shamed” nonstop since 1998. 
Lewinsky details it painfully. Feminists who should have supported her then did not, and few do today. Lewinsky writes about that awful lapse as well. Certainly she’s not to be defended as “the other woman” but as the victim of 
vicious, sexist attacks. Tubby, trampy, nutty, slutty, crazy, predatory, a veteran of summer

If you are a member of the 53% of the US population who actually pays income taxes, due today without a penalty, perhaps this chart from the Internal Revenue Service and analyzed by Mark J. Perry of AEIdeas will make you feel better. Or not. IRS data: The top 1% pay 37% of all taxes, the bottom half pay 2%, a blubbering David Letterman can’t believe the facts.

If lawmakers in Springfield thought they maneuvered beyond the treacherous topic of pension reform with their December votes to begin rescuing the state´s floundering pension system, they thought wrong. Chicago, with its enormously underfunded pension plans, is next in line. Three years into his mayoral term — after campaigning on a promise to fix pensions — Rahm Emanuel finally is ready to file legislation that would reduce the city´s dangerously unfunded pension liabilities for municipal workers and laborers. Emanuel says he has a deal with those employees´ unions that would bring two of the city´s four funds for retirees closer

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America.

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

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. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“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.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen.

Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
