Immigration Aide At Center Of
Boehner-Gohmert Altercation

Breitbart Big Government, by Matthew Boyle & Jonathan Strong

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/31/2014 8:10:08 PM

Speaker John Boehner´s top immigration aide was at the center of a heated dispute between the speaker and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a closed-door conference meeting Tuesday, according to several people who witnessed the altercation. Gohmert, speaking to the audience of Republican lawmakers during an open mic portion of the meeting, asked Boehner whether Becky Tallent, the speaker´s immigration aide who has drawn fire from immigration hawks, had authored the House GOP bill to address the border crisis scheduled to be voted on Thursday. Boehner rose from his chair and told Gohmert to knock it off, that he was

Comments:
Gohmert is getting under Boehner´s skin. He has every right to know who authored that disastrous bill and question Tallent. Since she worked for McCain I don´t trust her a bit. One Republican at the meeting called Gohmert´s conduct “disturbing” and “deranged?" Really? And who was that Republican? Gohmert is a good, honest man and anything but deranged!!

Becky Tallent, McCain´s aid authored the bill? This is a joke right?

Are there any doubts that Boehner, McCain and the rest of the RINOs are domestic enemies?

Mr. Gohmert had the right to ask the question, and Mr. Boehner still owes him an answer. Boehner gets mad at conservatives, but never at Reid or Obama, whose agenda he has acquiesced in passing.

Gohmert´s a flake. Lots of staffers are hired for their knowledge of the law, not their opinions. I have a very good friend who has worked for conservative members of the house as an environmental specialist even though she´s as far left as they come. With the complexities of the law these days there are very few potential staffers who comprehend the details of legislation.

Boehner is less popular than Obama. When will he be replaced? Something is very wrong with Boehner. He´s not trustworthy & he is destroying the republican party. The only time he gets upset is with the conservatives, never at the dems. I don´t ever remember a so called leader dividing the party. The party was never divided until Boehner was elected. We need a Newt or a Dulay.

Sorry #7, but saying a left wing environmentalist can help conservative craft sound environmentalist is a really bad example. The politicians changed the conclusions from the 1997 IPCC scientists that said that there was no correlation between the minimal half degree warming over a century and the activities of man. And that the EPA found in 2004 that there was zero correlation of contaminated ground water with hydraulically fracturing coal beds. This despite the coal beds being much closer to groundwater than the shale bodies from which we are getting oil and natural gas. You can´t build sound policy on a foundation of sand.

Watching Boehner and listening closely these last few weeks has me wondering WHO has Boehner by the short hairs.
Every photo shows him looking scared. Someone has bought him, and now it looks like he may not be able to deliver what he promised.
Did he make a deal with Reid? Is it the Chamber of Commerce?
Gohmert is one of the VERY few in the House speaking for the People.

There is NO flake around Louie Gohmert. He is not afraid of Boehner when everybody else is toeing the line for fear of being yanked from some committee. Gohmert in the House stands with Sessions and Cruz in the Senate trying to preserve the rights (which are left) due the U.S. citizen.

I STAND WITH GOHMERT He has been seen in interviews numerous times, and each time he sounds even more at ease in his beliefs as well as his skin. Frankly, I believe in the man and do trust him to do the ´right´ thing. Wrong or right, he is trusted and have faith he is on the side of WTP.

“There are jobs that American workers will not do,” Tallent said during a C-SPAN segment in 2013. She also advocated for the Senate Gang of Eight bill.

This statement fills me with fury. It did when Bush continuously repeated it, and it still does. What snobs! What out-of-touch elitists! There are Americans who will fill any niche - who still believe that work is honorable, and need to have safety net jobs. Those jobs are devalued by the flood of illegals, so they lose their value. The result is that the only stop-gap option is the government dole, which soon becomes a trap.

Ever notice Democrat lawmakers, administrations do not go looking for employees with opposite political tendencies? Only Pubbies are stupid enough to do this constantly. Then we are shocked when damaging "leaks" appear in the NYT to make Pubbies look stupid. #7, I disagree about Gohmert. Boehner has bungled his own job badly - just like a certain CinC we all know. He just freaked out because Gohmert´s question was going to bring yet more press attention to the hiring of Tallent.

You have to give it to Dems, they stick together no matter how crazy, while Rep´s will eat their own.

The Obama administration is ramping up its response to West Africa´s Ebola crisis, preparing to assign 3,000 U.S. military personnel to the afflicted region to supply medical and logistical support to overwhelmed local health care systems and to boost the number of beds needed to isolate and treat victims of the epidemic. President Barack Obama planned to announce the stepped up effort Tuesday during a visit to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta amid alarm that the outbreak could spread and that the deadly virus could mutate into a more easily transmitted disease.

In early June 1964, a group of Republican governors sought to wrestle control of their party from Barry Goldwater, the Arizona conservative who was about to lead the GOP to one of the most crushing defeats in its history. The governors saw a disaster in the making, and sought a moderate candidate who could capture the imaginations of grassroots Republicans—but also beat President Lyndon Johnson in the general election. Led by Ohio’s James Rhodes—the Republican Governors Association was meeting in Cleveland, and Rhodes was a legendary vote counter—the group included Pennsylvania’s William Scranton and later New York’s Nelson Rockefeller.

As he laid out his strategy to combat the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria, President Obama rejected the “best military advice” of his top military commander in the Middle East. Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said “that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants.” Austin’s recommendation was taken to the White House by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen.

Rand Paul (R-KY) ripped into President Obama over executive overreach and even vowed to repeal “all previous executive orders” in one of his first acts as president, should he run. Paul’s comments came to the New Hampshire chapter of Generation Opportunity, a national grassroots conservative group with a libertarian appeal with thousands of young liberty-minded activists nationwide engaged through it.

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia.

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and
