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.

Thank you Louie!

#14 with all due respect I understand your point. My friend is an expert in the law. She can tell a congressman the effect his policy will have not only on relevant law but possible forthcoming regulations. Changes in scientific fact don´t enter in to it.

#17 Gohmert has said a few things that are off the wall. I have little respect for him. That´s just my opinions.

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.

It´s very easy to email the Speaker if you have an opinion.

In response to Obama Nationalizes The 2014 Election As Democrat Candidates Cringe: There´s so much happening in the news right now that Obama declaring the 2014 elections are a referendum on his Presidency probably won´t get as much notice as it deserves. Along with his telling amnesty activists that "no force on Earth can stop us," this should figure prominently in Republican campaign ads for the rest of the season... a prospect that must have tightened a few sphincters among congressional Democrats, especially those who have been working overtime to distance themselves from Obama, or even pretend they are actively

The House made a bipartisan demand Friday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson conduct a comprehensive review of the Secret Service and not just a probe of how they reacted to last month’s fence jumper. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in the letter to Johnson that a September hearing on the agency exposed “a series of dangerous security breaches,” that point to serious flaws. Issa and Cummings also called on Johnson to make public a currently classified internal report on the incident as well as

Bret Baier asked Johnson: Did you ask Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to resign? “Director Pierson offered her resignation, and I accepted it,” he told Baier. Of securing the border, Johnson said Homeland Security brings to bear a risk-based strategy, focusing resources on places where officials see migration and threats. He called it an

How to assess Eric Holder’s record and legacy as attorney general? Let’s start with what should be an obvious proposition: Holder’s policies and approach to the job were consistent with the person who appointed him — Barack Obama. Lest Republicans forget, Obama was elected and reelected to the presidency by large margins in 2008 and 2012. First, congressional accusations against Holder on the controversial “Fast and Furious” “gun walking” program have been proven factually wrong. According to a thorough review by the independent inspector general of the Department of Justice, Holder did not know about this

Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme. Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

At times, the drones--or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)--were being used for purposes other than border or immigration enforcement. But the GAO does not have a full accounting of when and where the drones were flown, or what they were used for during the flight hours spent in “other airspace.” In a series of briefing slides provided in August to the staffs of the House and

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
