The Taste of John Boehners’ Tears

As I begin to write this, I am unsure whether I will quote the soon to be former Speaker of the House. The left-leaning Republican media in Virginia, New York, and Washington DC are already posting story after story about how unfairly their Dear Leader was treated by the Republican voters. See, we’re too stupid. That’s the problem with Republican politics. Republican voters are just too damn stupid. Yes, you too. You, reading this, you are stupid. See, when Mitch McConnell ran for the Senate on an anti-Obamacare Platform, you were stupid enough to believe him. When John Boehner ran for reelection in Ohio on repealing ObamaCare, you were just too stupid, you believed him.

Of course, they are blaming Ted Cruz and Rand Paul for your stupidity. See, you wanted them to defund ObamaCare and Planned Parenthood and Executive Amnesty. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul said that they’d fight for you, to push legislation as far as it would go, as far as it was possible. That forced the leadership in the Republican Party to pretend to agree with Senator Cruz and Senator Paul. In fact, Mitch McConnell ran for reelection on the Rand Paul Platform and John Boehner ran for reelection as Ted Cruz. But its you stupid, stubborn Cruz and Paul supporters who are ruining the Republican Party.

Yes, the Republicans are being lied to. They are being lied to by Boehner and McConnell, McCain and Graham, the Washington Times and Bearing Drift.

John Boehner announces retirement and then accuses those who oppose him of lying. Why? Because we want votes against ObamaCare – Boehner and McConnell both promised to repeal it. These aren’t serious men. They think of each of you, the republican voter, as an ignorant, worthless, pawn – a rube, an easily manipulated chess piece, a FOXNEWS automaton.

John Boehner, has announced, that the truth is that Republicans, in power or out of power, have no power and can accomplish nothing. If John Boehner is right, than anyone voting for a Republican for anything is a complete and utter moron. They never intended to represent you. They laughed their way through reelection. They pretended to be conservatives, they pretended to care. They don’t. Your only role to the GOP Leadership, is the role of a useful idiot. If you refuse to play that role, my friends, they will unleash the most vicious assaults against you.

As Republicans you have two choices: blind obedience and submission, or revolution against the Republican Leadership. There is no middle ground.

bobamaJohn Boehner and Mitch McConnell, and all the Bush people, Kascich people, and Christie people, are about to fund Obama’s agenda through the end of his term, because they agree with Obama’s agenda. They want Obama’s agenda. They never had any intention of representing you and they never will. These are facts. This is the way things are. If you want to change the Republican Party, you need to change, to exchange, all those who control it. Otherwise, you’ll remain the useful idiots of the rich and powerful – those who care nothing for country, for the economy, or for the future freedom and prosperity of America as a nation. Is it any wonder, that those who seem least contented with government are those who simply are not in the employ of the government or its politicians? If we don’t begin a drastic reduction immediately, we’ll be overrun. Anyone able to make a buck off the Bush Family or the Romney Clan will continue to control the party that used to represent you. Unless you have a hundred million dollars to invest in their power, you will have neither representation nor favored status amongst the elite.

Boehner retiring should not be seen as a victory, but merely the first pawn taken off the chessboard. It’s a step 2. Cantor was step 1. We need a checkmate. We must not rest until we have an entirely clean GOP leadership.

John Boehner Retires: What Have We Gained? What Have We Lost?

With great delight did I receive the news this morning that the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, would be retiring. Two years ago, the great patriots of Virginia’s 7th District retired House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, but since then, John Boehner has stood steadfast and resolute against the freedom movement in America.

However, Boehner’s departure was not without its’ costs.

The shocking move, first reported by The New York Times, means there’s unlikely to be a government shutdown next week.  Following Boehner’s announcement, House Republicans said there was agreement to pass a clean spending bill to keep the government open. Several members of the Freedom Caucus, the conservative group which led the revolt against Boehner’s leadership, said they will now support the spending bill without demands that it include language to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood. – Washington Post

Our friends in the Freedom Caucus have taken a great risk on our behalf, trading a budget showdown with Democrats over Planned Parenthood for Boehner’s seat atop the House of Representatives. If this were an establishment writer speaking to you now, I would make the argument that this is a great deal, because Obama would have vetoed a budget without abortion funding for Planned Parenthood anyway. So instead of fighting a losing battle, we win by getting rid of Boehner.

However, we aren’t merely facing future budgets. We’re facing a debt ceiling increase. It’s in the bag. The House and the Senate are going to increase the debt limit and there isn’t a damn thing we can do about it. That’s what John Boehner’s resignation cost us.

What have we gained? Hope. Kevin McCarthy may well be the next Speaker of the House, in which case we’ll find ourselves in an equally precarious position. However, McCarthy does not have the power John Boehner wielded. We could get a Congressional Session out of him during the elections where he allows Republicans to fight the battles near and dear to the hearts of Conservatives, in order to put Democrats on the defensive during a Presidential Election. Even show votes, if vetoed by Obama or prevented from coming to a vote by Democrats in the Senate, or even if killed by Mitch McConnell could get more Republicans to the polls next November.

That said, my hope is that our next Speaker of the House is not McCarthy. My impression is that he is less informed than Speaker Boehner and less honest. The Establishment, which still controls the majority in the House, should consider a more middle of the road candidate. Someone like Paul Ryan would be distasteful to conservatives, but it would not have the deleterious effect McCarthy would have – in fact, if its’ McCarthy, things could get much worse, much more quickly.

Furthermore, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz were hell bent on making Planned Parenthood a big time battle in the Senate. By 10am this morning, that ambitious effort became futile. Instead, we’re going to face more spending, more debt, less fiscal security, less debate, and the edge of the cliff becomes increasingly palpable.

I’m delighted to see John Boehner go – it was necessary. The future, however, remains uncertain; our resolve must remain resolute, our ambitions broadened, and our voices raised loud enough for leadership to hear and understand that our complaint rests, not with one man, but with a government bereft of affection for American Liberty. We did not rise seeking heads, but rather, freedom, smaller government, and a more constitutional society.

What’s Wrong With America?: A Series of Troubling Statistics

In 2010 and in 2014, conservatives sent wave after wave of Republicans to Washington to put an end to our exploding debt, irresponsible spending, and out of control bureaucracy. Each wave was met with 3 impossible obstacles. The first obstacle was John Boehner and the Republican Leadership in the House of Representatives. The second obstacle was Mitch McConnell and his den of pro-government Republicans in the US Senate. The third (and least effective) obstacle was President Barack Obama, who rarely has had to veto any Republican Legislation, because John Boehner and Mitch McConnell refuse to send any bills to the President they feel the President wouldn’t support. These three men have thwarted the will of the American People, energizing the grassroots to fight harder, but driving millions of conservatives away from the polls.

The two biggest problems in America are Welfare and Immigration. Over the last four years, no less than 45 million Americans have been participating in SNAP our nations’ food stamps program.

According to new data released by the Department of Agriculture (USDA), the number of Americans benefiting from SNAP, colloquially known as “food stamps,” has been at least 45 million for the last four years. The number of recipients has been above 45 million since May of 2011, peaking around 47.8 million in December of 2012, according to the Washington Free Beacon. ijreview

More troubling is the sheer number of Americans accessing our nations’ various welfare programs. According to CNSNews:

109,631,000 Americans lived in households that received benefits from one or more federally funded “means-tested programs” — also known as welfare — as of the fourth quarter of 2012, according to data released Tuesday by the Census Bureau.

The Census Bureau has not yet reported how many were on welfare in 2013 or the first two quarters of 2014.

But the 109,631,000 living in households taking federal welfare benefits as of the end of 2012, according to the Census Bureau, equaled 35.4 percent of all 309,467,000 people living in the United States at that time.

When those receiving benefits from non-means-tested federal programs — such as Social Security, Medicare, unemployment and veterans benefits — were added to those taking welfare benefits, it turned out that 153,323,000 people were getting federal benefits of some type at the end of 2012.

Subtract the 3,297,000 who were receiving veterans’ benefits from the total, and that leaves 150,026,000 people receiving non-veterans’ benefits.

The 153,323,000 total benefit-takers at the end of 2012, said the Census Bureau, equaled 49.5 percent of the population. The 150,026,000 taking benefits other than veterans’ benefits equaled about 48.5 percent of the population.

Compounding the Welfare problem is the overwhelming number of immigrants coming into the United States.

In 2013, approximately 41.3 million immigrants lived in the United States, an all-time high for a nation historically built on immigration. The United States remains a popular destination attracting about 20 percent of the world’s international migrants, even as it represents less than 5 percent of the global population. Immigrants accounted for 13 percent of the total 316 million U.S. residents; adding the U.S.-born children (of all ages) of immigrants means that approximately 80 million people, or one-quarter of the overall U.S. population, is either of the first or second generation.

How we can be expected to absorb and assimilate such large numbers of immigrants is beyond anything I can imagine. And with 1 in 5 Americans on means-tested welfare programs (not including Social Security, Medicare, Unemployment and Veterans Benefits) our economy is being pushed to the bring. These numbers above do not include illegal immigrants.

About 2.5 million illegal immigrants have settled in the U.S. during President Obama’s tenure, according to estimates being released Monday by the Center for Immigration Studies, which said it’s an improvement compared with the Bush administration. Nearly 800,000 of those illegal immigrants arrived in the past two years, suggesting that the flow has ticked up as the economy has improved and as Mr. Obama has reshaped enforcement policies, focusing on criminals while relaxing actions against rank-and-file illegal immigrants. WT

There is simply no way to consider this anything other than an unsustainable momentum.

We are witnessing the reckless and irresponsible hollowing out of the American economy and the end of our national sustainability. We have sent our messengers to Washington DC to put an end to the madness, but they have accomplished nothing, all because they have no way to overpower the Republican Leadership. Important to remember is that President Obama is not to blame for our failure. He hasn’t thwarted or vetoed legislation aimed at curbing the expense of immigration, legal and illegal, on this country. He hasn’t vetoed legislation reducing US Spending on Welfare. He hasn’t vetoed legislation that would repeal and replace ObamaCare. Why? Because the Republican Leadership refuses to send these bills to his desk.

The reality is, that we cannot continue down this road, and we require responsible legislators to oversee this nations’ purse strings. They refuse to do that job. The result is one of the slowest non-recoveries in our nations’ history and the inevitability of another collapse is always just across the horizon. It wouldn’t take much to send Wall Street into another panic.

The number one goal of the Republican Party ought to be to remove, not Obama, who has done nothing to stop us, but Mitch McConnell and John Boehner. These two men are the sole reason each of our last two wave elections failed to produce any significant results. In 2016, how can we expect conservatives, constitutionalists, and libertarians to show up at the polls and vote for a Republican when the Republican Party has been the biggest obstacle in achieving any progress since 2010? The fact is, unless we nominate someone the American People believe will steamroll the Republicans in Congress, there is no good reason for them to show up at the polls. What would be the point?

Mitch McConnell and John Boehner and all of their supporters have to go; and if you want to get rid of McConnell as leader in the Senate, you damn well better make sure you don’t send big government Statists like John McCain back to Washington DC. It is time to retire men like Orrin Hatch and John McCain, Lindsey Graham and John Cornyn. There about 25 Republican Senators that must be replaced in order for the Republican Party to ever again become an operable check on big government overreach and spending.

And in the House of Representatives, I wouldn’t elect a single Republican in a position of authority. Every chairman of every committee and sub-committee is a Boehner enforcement officer. You reelect them and you are sending John Boehner everything he needs to retain power and the ability to continue to thwart the will of the Republican Base. Defeating these two men is the only option we have left and we better get cracking. We’re running out of time. Six years is too long to wait to try to pick up the pieces this Republican Party (which has controlled Congress for the last five years) has left behind.
