Boehner’s Lawsuit Against
Obama Is Just a Feint

American Spectator, by F.H. Buckley

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 6/28/2014 6:35:55 AM

So what’s with John Boehner’s newfound love of litigation? The speaker announced yesterday that he will ask the House to initiate a lawsuit against the president over his refusal to enforce the laws Congress has passed. That’s something the Wall Street Journal and George Will have both suggested, and it’s not a crazy idea. First, the House likely has standing to bring an action. In 1990 a federal court held that a group of congressmen could not bring an action over George H.W. Bush’s failure to comply with the 1974 War Powers Resolution, but left open whether the House as

Comments:
Mr. Buckley lays it out for all to see. Boehner´s lawsuit is actually about him and the elected Republican Establishment avoiding doing their jobs, passing the buck to the courts, and all the while being able to prance about thumping their chests like they are actually serious about accomplishing something.

And your still a republican because...?

Got Responsibility?

Even Dr. Krauthammer agrees with the Lawsuit being brought by John Boehner, but then what does HE know? At least the Speaker is trying to DO something and not just stir up anger in the GOP.

Try reading the article, then comment. It saves you from embarrassing post like above.

As Mr. Buckley points out. Boehner can do something, right now, without the court needing to be involved. He just hasn´t the courage to do it or doesn´t really intend to do anything in the first place. You pick which, the end result is still the same.

Nice try though.

Boehner´s patterns are getting easy to spot. When he is going after conservatives the fangs come out and he goes for blood. When he is going after liberals its all show.
Like I keep saying...ignore what he says and pay attention to what he does.

Boehner needs to be able to say he did something while it will not change anything. Typical Elite response. Doesn´t the House have the power of the purse? That would make a difference.

Let me get this straight...

I post several articles and the same person over and over makes pretty much the same comments on most of them, obviously referring to me.

Yet, I am stalking.

Heh.

Also, unlike some apparently , I do not measure my worth on the clicks my comments get. I refuse to post my own articles when I write, as some here know. Why would I waste time needlessly clicking on my own articles when I could spend that time much better "stalking" you?

I recommend everyone read what Andrew McCarty has to say about the lawsuit this morning. Boehner has real power the courts don´t have, but it takes courage to stand up to a Marxist media and do something. He controls the PURSE use it, impeach lower officials i.e.; Holder and IRS Head.

Why quibble about Boehner´s intent? Why not focus instead on the value of the backdrop such a lawsuit will provide during the upcoming elections? With Holder firmly in place to block any progress, a lawsuit against Obama for not enforcing our laws will remain front and center, festering, for the next 2 ½ years. It will be very hard for the midterm Demos to ignore, and it may force Hillary to take a risky stance against her boss.
Perhaps the lawsuit is a strategic move?

I am ok with Boehner suing. The left sues everybody, regardless of constitutionality, making sense, or whatever, to gum up the works, and it seems effective at graying up and down, until no one knows a direction, so go ahead and sue. The right needs to get more active in the courts to stay in the race.

Why Mitt Romney should not be
the 2016 GOP Nominee
American Thinker, by S. John Massoud    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 7/9/2014 6:51:37 PM     Post Reply
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

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
Together, Goes Back to Kansas
"Every time I get an opponent"
Brietbart InstaBlog, by Dan Riehl    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 7/6/2014 6:12:54 PM     Post Reply
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

Are you Hispanic, black, Asian, Jewish, gay, young, old, poor, or a woman? Well, then you may have heard that conservatives like me hate you. In fact, I´m sure you´ve probably heard some version of it a hundred times since it seems to be the standard rap for liberals these days. "Those conservatives are racists! They hate Hispanics! They´re homophobes! They´re Nazis! They´re engaged in a war on women!" You get the idea. Well, first off, do you really think you can trust liberals to tell you what motivates conservatives? Can you REALLY trust Paul Krugman, Michael Moore, and your college professor

Even though numerous illegal immigrants flooding across the border have said they made the journey because they believed President Barack Obama would not deport them, the Chairwoman of the House GOP working group on the border crisis said the crisis has nothing to do with immigration reform. Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX), whom House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) appointed to the group, said, "please don’t call this an immigration reform issue, this is a humanitarian crisis, and we need help now."

   

 



 
Establishment GOP´s Tactics Will Backfire

Earlier this year, the conventional wisdom was that the moderate establishment had taken control of the GOP back from the Tea Party and other "extremists." With Dave Brat defeating House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Chris McDaniel receiving the plurality of the votes in the primary for Senate in Mississippi earlier this month it appeared to be reversed. Now, with Cochran’s defeat of McDaniel in the runoff and my loss to Bob Beauprez in the Colorado gubernatorial primary, many are calling the deaths again. The Cook Political Report argued, “Reports of [the Tea Party’s] death were premature and reports of their

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has asked a pro-Thad Cochran Super PAC, called Mississippi Conservatives, to provide additional information about what the newspaper Roll Call said “appears to be campaign finance violations.” At issue are last-minute expenditures made by the PAC in the days before the initial June 3 primary. The FEC “Request for Additional Information” says the PAC does not appear to have disclosed some of its spending in a timely manner. The FEC notes in the letter sent to treasurer Brian Perry that failure to “adequately respond” by Aug. 1 “could result in an audit or enforcement action.”

The White House on Tuesday formally requested $3.7 billion in emergency funding from Congress to deal with an influx of Central American minors along the southern border. But the proposal was quickly met with broad skepticism among Republican lawmakers, who were doubtful that the package would be approved quickly — if at all. Administration officials said the request is part of a comprehensive strategy aimed at building more detention centers, adding immigration judges, and beefing up border patrols and air surveillance. President Obama has said he hopes such steps will both speed deportations and discourage adults from sending children on

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

Starting next week, House Republicans will launch a highly visible—and likely tumultuous—three-week process of bringing to the floor legislation to authorize their promised lawsuit against President Obama over his use of executive actions. "In theory, you could report out a resolution tomorrow and vote on it," said a House GOP aide on Tuesday. "But that is not the approach [the leaders] want to take." Rather, the aim is to display—if not actually engage in—a more deliberative process, even if amid controversy. This drawn-out script builds toward a potentially dramatic floor vote held just days, or even hours, before the House adjourns on

WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats said Tuesday that they had developed legislation to override the Supreme Court decision on contraceptives. The bill would ensure that women have access to coverage for birth control even if they work for businesses that have religious objections. The bill, developed in consultation with the Obama administration, would require for-profit corporations like Hobby Lobby Stores to provide and pay for contraceptive coverage, along with other preventive services, under the Affordable Care Act. The measure could be on the Senate floor as early as next week, Senate Democrats said. “Your health care decisions are not your boss’s

Fate hasn´t been kind to Hillary Clinton, at least not in its most recent phase. In 2008, when the plate was set for the national Democrats, she lost the nomination to Barack Obama, of scant years and no gravitas, who soared out of nowhere to wrench destiny from her on the unspecified promise of "change." Now, "change" has come, and people don´t like it. Iraq changed from a safe, stable ally (just ask Obama) to a terrorist haven, one of the reasons why, though no fellow Democrats seem likely to edge her, her chances of winning the White House seem dim.

Despite Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson vowing to "stem the tide" of unaccompanied illegal minors across the southern border with Mexico, thousands more are expected to enter the United States by the end of the year. With the system being overwhelmed, Border Patrol agents are concerned about minors who have admitted to being MS-13 members, a brutal street gang from El Salvador that has been successful in infiltrating American communities.

Screenwriter James Vanderbilt will make his directorial debut with the film, which will also star Cate Blanchett. Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. The book, written by Rather´s producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W.

President Barack Obama does not believe his temporary amnesty program for illegal immigrant children has exacerbated the border crisis even though the number of illegal immigrant kids crossing the border spiked the year after he unilaterally enacted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012. In fact, Obama thinks programs like DACA and a comprehensive amnesty bill are ways to solve the border crisis. Addressing the press Wednesday after meeting with Texas Governor Rick Perry to discuss the border crisis in Dallas, Obama, when asked if programs like DACA have caused or contributed to the crisis,
