Boehner: ‘We don’t have a
tea party caucus to speak
of in the House’

Daily Caller, by Alexis Levinson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/9/2012 9:57:02 AM

There is no tea party caucus independent of the Republican caucus in the House of Representatives, Speaker of the House John Boehner said Thursday in an interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer. “We’ve got members from all different types — all walks of life, if you will,” Boehner said. “But do they come back changed by this election?” Sawyer asked. “Well, listen, I think this has been the most misreported story of my two years’ tenure,” Boehner replied. “We don’t have a tea party caucus to speak of in the House. All of us who were elected in 2010

Impeachment proceedings should have started yesterday in the House. With this clown running the show that will never happen. He can't even complete a sentence. I swear these Republicans are in Obama's pocket. NO ONE can be that incompetent.

These two factions of the GOP have got to find common ground and learn to work together or we will continue to lose. The fact that we had 3 million voters NOT turn out and vote for Romney/Ryan is a disgrace. There is no perfect candidate...each and every one will have their flaws. Instead of each person looking for their perfect candidate how about we do what is right for the country. In this case it was obvious that Mitt Romney was clearly a man that had a vision for this country that was far better than his opponent. Well to the 3 million of you that were to cute by half with staying home and your little protest vote...ENJOY THE NEXT 4 YEARS!

I'm with #8. Frankly, I don't think many of you read the article. Boehner says: "All of us who were elected in 2010 were supported by the Tea Party". He goes on to say that they are all going to have to get along and pull together.

#4, can we forget the impossible dream of impeachment with a Democrat Senate? That is delusional. Insisting that our people accomplish the impossible is not helpful.

And the guy who says no more contributions might as well join the other side for all the use he will be to us. In fact, he has joined without knowing it.

Boehner has been a weak and ineffective speaker with no core conservative values and should be replaced post haste. But I have another comment to make after just hearing his presser. Is it just me or (ridiculous fake tan and short fuse aside)is his voice/cough getting more irritating? He and Jan Brewer as well are so obviously emphysemic they grate on one's ears.

John continues to believe - or pretends to believe - the House has some influence in US government. But Obama has successfully ignored it for two years and ruled as he wishes.

Time for another little drama, only a formality. Dire warnings and threats will frighten the House into raising the debt limit and taxes.

But if the House should balk Obama will just print money and proceed. The debt limit is a number in a law. Laws don't matter.

The Constitution also no longer matters. Force counts. Obama has it and he will use it. The government employees will obey. The military will obey.

Nearly all the media will cheer. The rest, a mere handful, will be dealt with.

Expect the state and local police to be federalized so they are directed from Washington. Federalization makes no sense under the Constitution but that is history.

The Supreme Court will do nothing. Four votes were always ready to back anything Obama wanted. Now Roberts is the fifth. And with no real functions left the justices can take longer vacations.

Beatings will continue.

#27, the purse strings are control.

If the house is ignored by Capt Zippy, the government employees and military are outnumbered just by the number of deer hunters in PA. It just takes a spine on the part of American citizens, as they are the owners of the government.

#28 many will agree with you. I contend there is no way for that type of resistance to organize and coordinate effectively. It is a dead end. Literally.

Right now millions of people wonder what this election means. Is it merely a setback until 2014 or later elections change Washington? Are we in a bad economic slump which is certain to end?

Or has US of our textbooks hit the iceberg? I see it that way, partly because it is interesting to speculate. But no one knows.

KIEV, Ukraine – U.S. officials say the White House is announcing an aid package to Ukraine of $1 billion in lost energy subsidies as it seeks to extract itself from Russia´s influence. The announcement came as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry landed in the Ukrainian capital Tuesday to show American support for Kiev´s military and political struggle against Moscow. Russian troops have overtaken the local government in Crimea, a strategic region in Ukraine´s southeast. Western leaders are threatening to fierce economic sanctions as early as this week against if Moscow does not retreat. The economic package also includes training

Speaking with Breitbart News Executive Chairman and host Stephen K.

House Pressures Obama to Dismantle
Iran’s Enrichment Program
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article

Two top House lawmakers called on the Obama administration Monday to ensure that any final agreement with Iran requires it to dismantle all “weapons-related infrastructure,” including its uranium enrichment program. Reps. Eric Cantor (R., Va.) and Steny Hoyer (D., Md.) authored a letter to President Barack Obama on Monday asking him to ensure that Iran shut down nearly all of its nuclear-related facilities under a final deal. The letter comes as top Senate leaders push a similar letter to the president that was initiated by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which is holding its annual policy conference this week in

Politico reports that Marco Rubio is “seeking to rehabilitate his image with much of the GOP base” by falling back on “staunch conservative positions” such as a “more aggressive U.S. response to Russia in the Ukraine crisis.” I hope that denouncing passivity in response to aggression by our adversaries remains a staunch conservative position. Rubio explained that “many of my supporters maybe disagreed with me on immigration — and disagreed strongly — but they understand that I’ve been involved in other issues that are important for the country.” The concern, though, is not lack of involvement by Rubio on the right

The Senate will soon vote on President Obama´s nomination of former NAACP Legal Defense Fund official Debo Adegbile to head the Justice Department´s Civil Rights Division. There are a number of reasons many Republicans oppose the nomination, most prominent among them Adegbile´s passionate and continued advocacy on behalf of Philadelphia cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. But one objection to the nomination has received little public notice, and it involves a quiet but growing controversy over the issue of criminal background checks. It´s not unusual for businesses to conduct a check before hiring new employees. If the check uncovers that the applicant has, say,

Bob Costas joined Bill O’Reilly Monday night to defend his coverage of Vladimir Putin and Russia during the Sochi Olympics from conservative critics. Costas dismissed the whole thing as a “non-issue” and a “flimsy pretext for a controversy.” He said that he was “repeatedly” critical of Putin’s regime and human rights record on a number of occasions during the Olympics. O’Reilly, who defended Costas from those aforementioned critics last month, asked why they would bring up politics at all. Costas argued it was important for the framing of the games, because if they were successful, “it would burnish the image of

A new and comprehensive comparison of health insurance options offered by Obamacare versus private websites finds that President Obama´s program offers less choice and higher prices than promised by the White House and leading Democrats. Adding to the list of broken health care promises, the study from the National Center for Public Policy Research found that there were more and cheaper options available on websites outside the health insurance exchange in 2013 than on healthcare.gov and state Obamacare exchanges. The report, "Obamacare Exchanges: Less Choice, Higher Prices,” looked at options available for a 27-year-old single person and a 57-year-old couple in metropolitan

The Supreme Court has declined to hear a case about a German home-schooling family who is seeking asylum status in the United States. The court rejected the case Monday without comment. Devout Christians Uwe and Hannelore Romeike have been seeking asylum because German law does not permit home-schooling and requires children to attend state-approved schools. The Romeikes and their six children moved to Tennessee in 2008 to avoid hefty fines and possible jail time. The family initially was granted asylum by a U.S. immigration judge. That judgment was overturned by an immigration panel, which said the family was not persecuted and was not eligible

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

He told every Apple shareholder to take a hike and waved potential investors away. When Cook met with shareholders Friday, he lost his usual business cool when a group proposed that the company be more open about its environmental activism as well as transparent about costs it incurs as it increases its dependence on renewable energy.

The crisis in Ukraine has brought out a fresh round of critics of President Obama´s foreign policy who see a pattern emerging: the president tries to assert his authority and direct events on the world stage with empty threats, which inevitably have no follow through. With each instance, U.S. power grows weaker as foreign powers view Mr. Obama as the president who cried wolf. The latest case: Mr. Obama´s public warning to Russia to stay out of Ukraine was followed by an invasion just days later. It´s just the latest failure, say critics who point to Syria as an example.
