Trouble for Boehner´s Speakership?
National Journal, by Billy House

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/21/2012 12:52:42 AM

John Boehner’s speakership is suddenly “on the ropes,” says at least one outside conservative group after Thursday night’s head-spinning developments that saw the Republican leader scrap a vote on his own plan to avert the year-end “fiscal cliff” because not enough members of his party would support it. “Speaker Boehner said today´s bill would pass. His credibility as a leader has evaporated,” declared Ron Meyer a spokesman for American Majority Action, a Virginia-based group, which has trained thousands of conservative activists and says it predates the tea party movement.

Comments:
I would hope so, The stupid and wasteful discussions with 0bama are only putting the off our enviable slide over the "fiscal cliff." Let the 0bamaNation own this debacle. And, in January, who cares what he does. In four years, hopefully we will have installed enough Tea Party conservatives to try to win back the presidency and Congress.

No, he had his chance and he blew it. Time to replace him with a "TRUE" Conservative. If the Republicans bring him back as Speaker, I will drive to my County Seat and remove my name from the rolls as a "Republican."

Boehners trouble started when he stripped the TPers of their committees. Why? Per Obama´s request... or at the behest of progressive GOPers?

Obama is going to spend what he wants on what he wants. This whole Fiscal Cliff exercise was designed to make the GOP look like idiot fall guys.

We have no congress for the next 4 years... Obama will ignore the dems as well.

The republicans agreed to this horible deal to begin with. 90% ofthe losers in this deal will be working pwople.The moocher class has nothing to lose.There´s nothing for the left to have to save by making a deal.They´re social spending will go on as usual.

I think the GOP banked on winning the WH and this bad deal could be averted. Now that Obama stole the election,there´s few options for them.

There was no point in passing plan B because Obama wasn´t giving anything in return.Obama wants the cliff anyway.

I have no idea what #4 just said although I think his username may pretty well describe where he is coming from. I agree with the other posts. If the Republican Party is going to be a viable alternative to Obama´s big-government, dictatorial ambitions, it needs to put a true conservative into the speaker´s position. Boehner has been the great accommodator and, as such, has been nothing but a foil for Obama and the Democrats.

Allen West has to be a congressman in order to be elected Speaker.

FTA: Rep. Steven LaTourette, R-Ohio, who is close to Boehner, said the idea that this episode has hurt Boehner’s speakership is, “like saying the superintendent of an insane asylum should be discharged because he couldn’t control the crazy people. I mean that’s nuts.” So does this Ohio Republican think he is endearing Boehner to the conservatives by comparing them to lunatics? Wow. They really ARE out of touch. Bye Bye Buckeye Boehner.

In the Republican Caucus, the Speaker does not have to be a sitting Member. That is why Louie Gohmert of Texas suggested Newt Gingrich a few weeks ago. The Speaker needs to be a Leader/Communicator in today´s world. Boehner is lacking as a leader and inept as a communicator. Additionally, when dealing with Chicago tactics, he or she needs to be pugnacious.

Okay, so we get a "true Conservative" and offer up a stellar plan. Will Harry Reid or Barack Obama or any of the Democrats accept it?

I know what the answer is. Why are the Republicans and John Boehner being blamed? Oh, that´s right. Our side always blames their own.

Some pundits and bloggers gave Boehner some excellent advice during this. Boehner should have broadcast these negotiations on CSpan, and not done them in secrecy. It was very effective during the Obamacare ram through. Obama looked like the petulant arse he is, and Paul Ryan and others offered serious proposals.

Why Boehner played this on Obama´s turf I´ll never understand. The next Speaker needs to be able to articulate conservatism, and be on tv 24-7. Remember how Pelosi talked down the economy in 2006?

The House controls all spending. The Senate and the President accepts the House bill, modifies the House bill and asks the House to OK the changes, or they ignore the House bill and the federal government shuts down.

I see no downside to this, including the shut-down. The House has all the power, unless they give up that power to the ridiculous demands of the democrats.

Tabby named Puddy Cat and its owner
defrauded of $450,000, prosecutors say

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/20/2014 3:36:48 PM     Post Reply
A once fat cat is now almost broke, literally. Not the Wall Street-type, but the four-legged, furry variety. A 7-year-old tabby called Puddy Cat is at the center of an extensive embezzlement case out of Suffolk County, Massachusetts. Puddy Cat once stood to inherit part of a trust fund worth at least $450,000, until its owner fell victim to a couple of swindling neighbors, prosecutors said. Puddy Cat belongs to a 74-year-old Brighton woman who is suffering from progressive dementia and living in a nursing home. The woman created the "Puddy Cat Trust" in her will and specified that, upon her death, the tabby was to be cared for

Batial-1 Well, Mexico - The geological marvel known to Texas oilmen as the Eagle Ford Shale Play is buried deep underground, but at night you can see its outline from space in a twinkling arc that sweeps south of San Antonio toward the Rio Grande. The light radiates from thousands of surface-level gas flares and drilling rigs. It is the glow of one of the most extravagant oil bonanzas in American history, the result of the drilling technique known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking.

Ex-death row inmate Anthony Porter

Anthony Porter is angry. He’s come within hours of being executed after he was convicted of killing two people. He was freed from Death Row after another man, Alstory Simon, confessed to the murders. He got a pardon, but he didn’t get a dime when he sued the city and the cops for framing him. And now, there’s a serious push to strip away what little Porter has left: his claim of innocence. Attorneys pushing for Simon’s release from prison say the justice system got it right the first time — that the evidence points to Porter all along in the notorious double murder in 1982 at a South Side park.

Credit card companies know there’s no free lunch, but they’re letting more customers get a taste as an enticement by gouging their existing card members. The average credit card interest rate for people with fair credit has hit a shocking 21 percent, up more than 2 percent from only a year ago, according to industry group CardHub. Credit card companies, which attract new customers with zero percent teaser rates and more rewards, have raised rates while their costs remain historically low, industry observers say. “Credit card interest rates were higher across the board during the first three months of 2014 relative to the same period last year,”

Before taxpayers lost $529 million on solar energy company Solyndra and $10.5 billion on GM, the US government had a long history of backing the wrong horse. Many of the great industries in US history — from the fur trade to steamships, railroads, chemicals and airplanes — failed in the hands of government but succeeded thanks to private entrepreneurs. A closer reading of American history may have avoided the colossal mistake of President Obama’s $700 billion stimulus bill. The government has learned over and over again that when it comes to business, it’s a terrible boss. Here are a few examples to keep in mind the next time you

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

Jeb Bush’s recent musings on a possible presidential run—and his comments on immigration, rankling many in the Republican grassroots—sparked a familiar clash. Jeb, the establishment’s preferred candidate, some said, could neutralize the fiery GOP base in 2016. Conservatives shot back that Jeb would depress conservative turnout, and his last name would play poorly with the general electorate. It’s a constant tension: The base is unhappy with the establishment, and vice versa. But this year, the marriage of convenience between the grassroots of the party and its donor class has emerged so battered from eight years of

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street.
