GOP lawmaker: Boehner said
members were punished for
their ´voting patterns´

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Molly K. Hooper

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/5/2012 12:59:22 PM

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) warned his conference on Wednesday that leaders are "watching" how the rank-and-file vote to determine committee assignments, according to sources in the closed-door meeting. Boehner addressed the firestorm over the removal of four lawmakers from plum committee assignments at the weekly GOP conference meeting. According to Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.), one of the lawmakers denied a spot on his current committee in the next Congress, Boehner did note "that we [leadership] have punished four members, he claimed that it had nothing to do with their conservative ideology, but had to do with their voting patterns."

Comments:
What a joke. Republicans specialize in dumping on their own people. The last paragraph tells it all. They weren´t even given a list of the alleged votes that rewarded or punished the members of the committees. Amazing.

As soon as I can get there, I will no longer be a registered Republican. I cannot vote for this bunch led by Boehner. No backbone, no principles, no more money or votes. Done. I will vote only when I think there is someone worth while voting for. You can say, then you are letting them win. No, I see it as Boehner and his ilk letting them win for years and years. Call it caving.

I think 2014 will be a good time to remind Boehner, Cantor and McCarthy that the Tea Party conservatives are the one and only reason they lead the majority in the House. I live 90 miles from Cincinnati and think I will go up there to work to defeat the twitchy-lipped Boehner.

Lucianne should put up a special thread for a few days to let us brainstorm as to what a new party should be, who should start it and lead it, what it should be called, etc. Republican no longer means conservative, yet conservatives are supposedly in the majority in the country. I think a Conservative Party would put republicans out of business in short order.

Boehner ~ When will you get a Clue ~ the Left is cemented together like glue and YOU divide your party. My Congressman ~ Justin Amash is a great young man and a clear thinker and we in this district love him for his openness ~ posting all his votes and the reasons for them on facebook.How refreshing ! Tea Party ~ it´s time to break away and get it on your own.

Boehner knows he´s the speaker of the house because the Dems want him to be. Democrat election fraud is so entrenched, he knows which side holds the cards and it´s not the GOP. He will do the dems´ bidding and the dems don´t want trouble makers in lead roles.

Boehner has no expectation that he will lose if he sides with the dems. They will help him keep his seat as long as it is worth it to them to keep the House under "Republican" control.

The entire Republican party needs to be scrapped and replaced by a party that has not signed off on never investigating Democrat election fraud and lining its own pockets.

Looks as though the elephants are getting WAY to big for their britches. Remember this, ´you ´never forget elephants´ YOU are the majority at the moment only because of conservatives. You want to play dirty and rough? You do so at your own peril. We can leave you as fast as you tend to walk away. Watch us and watch our feet. Careful....your clock is ticking and your time is up. Face it you two bit klowns, you need us much more than we need you traitors. As another poster said today. This is JB just giving Two Won another bonus to add to the scalps. Just as our o great dictator wants his way, ousting conservatives is just another bullet of his agenda. My God, look who has been placed on the finance committee...the loon Maxine Waters.....and JB allowed this why??? JB, did you ever see ´Dallas´ Your character has morphed into JR. Dream on you bugger.

Boehner´s a company man first, a Republican second and conservative doesn´t make the top ten. First and foremost he´s a company man and the company business is Big Government. He has never supported small government conservatism. He kept Jeff Flake, my new Senator, off the appropriations committee because of his crusade against pork.

I see a groundswell biulding up of people coming to face the truth of the demise of the republican party - and not before time. The leadership continues to be pitiful. They sold out their principles a long time ago. Forget party identification and get the best men and women who will uphold the constitution and properly represent their constituents. They thumbed their collective nose atthe newly electeds with the energy in favor of compromised dead wood.

The actions of the TEA party conservatives are what put Boehner in the role of Speaker of the House.
Now he spits on conservatives.
And kisses the arse of Obama. We will not forget this, Boehner. Is everyone aware that Boehner preferred a democrat in Michele Bachmann´s seat and told the RNC NOT to fund her campaign? She received not ONE cent from the RNC in her hard fought race for re-election! I guess she was too conservative for King Boehner.

About 6 years in Congress rots a person´s ethics and morals. Boehner has more in common with Reid, Pelosi, Biden, and Obama than he does with you and I. Work to elect conservatives and give no money to the RNC.

The Roots of CAIR’s
Intimidation Campaign
National Review Online, by Andrew C. McCarthy    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/13/2014 10:12:32 PM     Post Reply
Author’s Note: This week, capitulating to Islamic-supremacist agitation led by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Brandeis University reneged on its announced plan to present an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the heroic human-rights activist. In my 2010 book, The Grand Jihad, I devoted a chapter to the origins and purposes of CAIR, its roots in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Hamas-support network, and its aim to silence critics of Islamic supremacism. In light of the continuing success of this campaign — despite a federal terrorism-financing prosecution that exposed CAIR’s unsavory background — it is worth revisiting that history. What follows

Sen. Rand Paul says potential White House rival Jeb Bush was inarticulate when he described immigrants who come to the United States illegally as committing an "act of love." In an interview that aired Sunday, Paul said that those immigrants "are not bad people" but added the United States "can´t invite the whole world" inside its borders. Paul, the Kentucky Republican eyeing a 2016 campaign, says Bush should have kept his focus on controlling the U.S. borders. Bush, a former Florida governor, says the GOP cannot demonize immigrants and should show compassion. He described illegal immigration as an "act of love" by people

Despite the testimony of GM CEO Mary Barra that the company "acted without hesitation" to address the ignition switch problems that served as the basis for the latest recall of millions of vehicles, emails show that GM failed to address product problems, some of which Barra herself seemed fully aware of, at least as far back as 2011. The company, often derided as "Government Motors" because of the billions of tax dollars infused into it by President Obama, has been under fire this month because of ignition switch problems linked to dozens of crashes and perhaps as many as 13 deaths.

SAN DIEGO, CA -- Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke via satellite to attendees of San Diego’s Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on Apr. 11, just days after canceling plans to attend in person. Two protest groups gathered outside the San Diego Convention Center for the conference, but for two different reasons. One group of 10-15 demonstrators, promoting a single-payer healthcare system, stood across from the Convention Center. While playing a recording of the folk tune “Medicare for All,” the group spoke to passing pedestrians for approximately two hours. The other protest, directly in front of the Convention Center,

DOJ says cross on California

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

Death by solar farms: 71 species of birds

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

The first episode, now available online, stars actors Harrison Ford and Don Cheadle, two of the series’ correspondents. “It’s the biggest story out there,” said James Cameron, an executive producer of the series, in an interview.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it.
