Boehner returns as
speaker by three votes

Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/3/2013 11:38:35 PM

House Speaker John A. Boehner narrowly survived his re-election battle on Thursday as the 113th Congress convened at the Capitol amid calls for cooperation on the same issues that left lawmakers gridlocked over the past two years. In the Senate, the two top leaders have at least for the time being averted a potentially disastrous fight over filibuster rules, and the inspiring return of Sen. Mark Kirk, Illinois Republican, from a yearlong recovery from a stroke left the upper chamber awash in optimism. In the House, Republicans and Democrats issued a call

Ya think telling Dingy Harry to blank himself, twice, put him over the top?

GOP will lose in 2014 by big margin, as GOP dissolves under Boehner´s leadership.

We are so screwed.

The same people threatening to boycott the 2014 election are the people who stayed home in 2008 and 2012 and the people that brought us Akin, O´Donnell, Buck, Angle, and Mourdock. They´ve helped give us 2 terms of Dear Leader, they´ve delivered 5 Senate seats to the Democrats and now they threaten to stay home in 2014. Good grief. Wake up and smell the coffee.

5 - I don´t stay home, I vote. However, in 2014 I won´t vote for a republican. What might happen if a Democrat wins, they might vote to increase taxes and increase spending?

That´ll sure be different. It is time for a third party.

It could have been worse, Nancy Pelosi could have won. I don´t get it. I thought the speaker was chosen from the leading party. I also didn´t know they didn´t have to be a member of congress. How dumb is that considering the speaker is second in command to replace the prez.

´´ ´If you have come here to see your name in lights or to pass off political victory as accomplishment, you have come to the wrong place. The door is right behind you,´´ Mr. Boehner said after winning the speaker’s gavel for the second time.´´

Who does he think he is to dismiss the people´s choices for any reason?! Sounds as if he´s saying, ´´If you don´t follow me, get out.´´ The House could have chosen better.

Well, those who opposed Boehner did not unite behind a credible alternative, and none came forward. So the outcome was to be expected.

And I know most posters will disagree with me on this, but I don´t think replacing JB would have made any positive difference. A more ideological Speaker would have had the nearly impossible task of keeping the (so-called) moderate members in line while being deep fried by the Democrat/Media complex. (Remember a guy named Newt?) We as a nation are in dire straits because we´ve lost the culture, our religious heritage and the education system. Those who insist on looking for a one man, magic bullet solution to this mess are going to be continually disappointed and frustrated.

More disappointment from the Republican party. The stakes could not be higher and yet the Republicans continue to bring a knife to a gun fight. The ruling class, and I am talking about Republicans here, have no intention of going to battle when they have the same spending addiction as the dems. Boehner has proven he has no gift for political strategy, he has zero ability in political messaging, and has no stomach for the fight that needs to waged against the enemies of freedom so of course, he was re-elected as speaker. When you want the status quo, he is your man. The Founding Fathers could not be more proud, I am sure, to see a group of weaklings surrender the Republic so easily.

+The real problem is the vast middle class in this country doesn´t have a lobbyist up there fighting for them.Virtually everybody else does,so you see certain people protected from taxes and blockage of spending cuts.If something comes under a threat,they just make another donation and it goes away.

The real story should be on how big a liar Obama was when he said he´s going to get rid of lobbyists.There hasn´t been a president,at least in my lifetime that´s been in lobbyists pockets,more than Obama.

Obama has two groups of lobbyists,the fringe base wanting handouts and the big money grabbers who simply get grants for breathing.
Republicans can´t promise people free stuff which puts them in one hell of a disadvantage. More and more people are saying if they´re doing it, why not me.This is disassembling the cores of what built this country.

Liberals are attacking this country from every angle possible and unless you´re a very inquisitive person,you don´t have a clue on what´s going on.

The left knows they´re doing a horrendous job running this country,wherever you see a liberal,you see red ink. To distract attention,they´re piling on republicans at every turn to make them look worse and everybody´s falling for it.

If the Republican House members were serious about saving the Republic, they would have done what was necessary to provide Leadership to do the job.
Boehner´s heavy handed removal of chairmanships from conservatives was abuse of power. I guess other House members are more than willing to sell their souls.

Blaming those who did not vote for Romney is like blaming those who did not place bets on the broken down nag for its loss. Put up a winner and I bet there will be plenty of votes for him. Romney lost because Romney failed to attract enough votes. My guess is that if we put up a similar candidate we will see a similar result. My guess is that if we again fail to learn that lesson we will be once again blaming those who did not vote for our candidate for his loss.
Sorry to see Boehner win again. He seems like a good number 2 guy but not a leader. I may be wrong but he sure got outplayed in his first term. He had two years to get out in front and he simply got out maneuvered. Oh well, maybe this time.

Contempt and the IRS

The House Oversight Committee has voted to hold former IRS subpotentate Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, while the House Ways and Means Committee has referred her case to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution. The facts in the case suggest very strongly that Ms. Lerner has earned the contempt of the American people as well as criminal prosecution to the full extent of the law. The question of whether Justice will do justice now rests with the Obama administration, in service to which Ms. Lerner organized and oversaw the repression of nonprofit activists under color of IRS authority.

With the rocky rollout of his health care law in a post-deadline lull, President Obama will move this week to shake up his health care team, accepting the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and tapping his budget director as a troubleshooting replacement, the White House confirmed Thursday. Mrs. Sebelius, a former Kansas governor who has served as HHS secretary for Mr. Obama’s entire tenure, was the president’s point person as his signature law stumbled out of the blocks in October. Despite calls for her to be fired, Mrs. Sebelius stayed on the job to oversee a

A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt. When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them.

The petition arrived the day before publication of my column, which consisted of precisely that heresy. The column ran as usual. But I was gratified by the show of intolerance because it perfectly illustrated my argument that the left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation — no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition.

Attorney General Eric Holder must be suffering from a sort of amnesia. He is upset at supposed divisiveness and rudeness directed at him when testifying before Congress, and suggests not too subtly that he and President Obama have been accorded inordinately harsh treatment (fill in the blanks why). Aside from the fact that he seemed to have relished the combat with Representative Gohmert in quite unprofessional tones (“you don’t want to go there, buddy, alright?”/ “good luck with your asparagus”), he seems to forget what former attorney general Alberto Gonzales once endured both in the liberal media and before Democrats

If you have not yet heard, Brandeis University has rescinded its offer of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Somali-born activist whose work has focused on the barbaric misogyny rampant in Islamic societies like the one in which she was raised—and whose efforts to call attention to them as a legislator in the Netherlands led to a political crisis there and her eventual flight to the United States.

When Chief Justice John Roberts rewrote ObamaCare from the bench in order to save it, most of the ramifications were immediately apparent. But there was one aspect of the stunt that as a member of the Supreme Court Roberts should have been sensitive to: precedent. Having caved to a public intimidation campaign from the president and his congressional allies (as well as the media) Roberts signaled that the way to get a conservative justice to discard his better judgment and rule against constitutional law was to impugn the court’s reputation in the public square.

Sen. Mark Begich has said repeatedly that he thinks President Obama is wrong about a host of policies, whether on oil drilling, the military or the environment. Begich also has made it perfectly clear that he has no interest in having his fellow Democrat out to his home state of Alaska, saying earlier this year that he doesn’t “care to have him campaign for me.” But that doesn’t mean he’s not looking for the president’s help. Begich has in fact submitted a long wish list to the Obama administration for agency decisions that he thinks would boost his reelection chances.

On its present course, the Supreme Court will ultimately overrule its 1976 decision in Buckley v. Valeo, the landmark case upholding campaign finance “reform” legislation. It can’t come too soon, because Buckley expressly ignored the First Amendment’s injunction that “Congress shall make no law .?.?. abridging the freedom of speech.” Instead of free speech, we now have regulated speech that has ensnarled elections in a web of bizarre and opaque rules. Last week, in McCutcheon et al. v. Federal Election Commission, the court began edging away from Buckley by striking down one of its limits on free speech. The details

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle.
