Boehner 2.0? Don’t Expect Much From Paul Ryan. He’s Already Surrendering

You remember John Boehner, don’t you?  You know.  That fake (R)epublican who as Speaker of the House oversaw an increase in the debt of more than $4 trillion.  That RINO who surrendered to Barack Obama at EVERY turn.  That gutless wonder who when given the leadership of the House said “What do you expect me to do? We only control one half of one branch of government?”  Then, when actual conservatives gave the GOP control of both houses, surrender-monkey Boehner said “What do you expect me to do?  Obama will just veto what we send him if we don’t give him what he wants.”  Yeah, that guy.  The one that everyone except democrats hated, and were ready to take up pitchforks and torches to run out of town.  The good news?  He’s now GONE.  Thank the Lord for that.  The bad news?  Boehner’s mini-me has been crowned as Speaker.

First of all, when Nancy Pelosi and many other democrats are praising Paul Ryan, you KNOW you’ve picked the wrong guy.  We didn’t have to wait long for confirmation.  Case in point, Ryan’s pre-battle surrender over defunding Planned Parenthood.

When you have an organization that has been PROVEN to be breaking the law, that is murdering millions of babies and selling their body parts for profit in violation of the law, that provides little in the way of actual healthcare services contrary to the claims of supporters, AND taxpayers are being forced to pay for it despite moral and religious objections, it should be a NO-BRAINER to end taxpayer funding for such an organization.

So, what does the new Speaker of the House Paul Ryan say about the fight to end taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood? 

“I think we need to be very clear about what we can and cannot achieve and not set expectations that we know we can’t reach given the constraints of the Constitution,”

The only reason Ryan and the GOP CAN’T achieve what conservatives want is because the establishment, spineless, surrender-monkeys refuse to even engage in battle for what is RIGHT.  They are only interested in keeping their seat at the table, no matter who they have to lie to so they can.  They are “conservatives” when they want to be reelected, but immediately betray those who put them in power as soon as the polls close.

What does this mean?  It means that the GOP led by establishment RINOs is merely the democrat wing of the Republican party.  We effectively have one party socialist rule now, with a small handful of conservatives leading the insurgency to restore constitutional sanity.

What it also means is that the same fervor that unseated Eric Cantor, forced Boehner to resign and retire, and prevented Kevin McCarthy from running for Speaker must be rekindled and fanned into an inferno to get rid of more RINOs.  I hate to say this, but we must FIGHT LIKE DEMOCRATS.  They are relentless in pursuit of their agenda.  I hope it’s not already too late to save this nation, but I fear it is.  We must keep fighting and save what we can.

Paul Ryan Doubtful About Defunding Planned Parenthood

November 1, 2015 5:02 pm

(CNN) – Paul Ryan doesn’t believe Planned Parenthood should get one “red cent” from taxpayers — but he cautioned Sunday against expectations that he’ll be able to pull federal funding for the organization now that he’s House speaker.

“I think we need to be very clear about what we can and cannot achieve and not set expectations that we know we can’t reach given the constraints of the Constitution,” Ryan told CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union.”

The women’s health organization has long drawn the ire of anti-abortion lawmakers, but efforts to pull federal funding for it increased after activists released undercover videos accusing Planned Parenthood of breaking federal laws by selling tissue and organs from aborted fetuses.

“I don’t think Planned Parenthood should get a red cent from the taxpayer. I’ve always believed that, even before these disgusting videos came out,” Ryan said. “But I believe we need to do our oversight. We’re just beginning to start a committee to investigate Planned Parenthood. That’s important. So the special committee on Planned Parenthood, I think, should be in the driver’s seat overseeing this process.”

Bash asked, “Will you defund Planned Parenthood?”

“This is what I mean when I say being an effective opposition party. I think being an effective opposition party means being honest with people upfront about what it is we can and cannot achieve,” he said.

“But we also have to push issues where we can push issues, we have to speak truth to power,” he added. “We have a president that isn’t willing to listen, that isn’t going to sign lots of our bills into law, we have a Senate that has a very difficult process when it comes to actually getting bills voted on, so knowing that we have those constraints, we have to operate within those constraints.”

Ted Cruz passes 19TH HOUR of epic filibuster against Obamacare

By David Martosko, U.s. Political Editor and Francesca Infante

PUBLISHED: 18:38 EST, 24 September 2013 | UPDATED: 09:31 EST, 25 September 2013

Senator Ted Cruz, who vowed to speak out against Obamacare on the Senate floor ‘until I am no longer able to stand’, has slogged his way into a second day and shows no sign of relenting after speaking for more than 19 hours.

Cruz, who began at 2.41pm on Tuesday, is continuing his crusade to deny funding for Obama’s overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system, branding it the country’s ‘biggest jobs killer’.

With no sign of stopping, Cruz has so far navigated disparate topics including the American revolution, sending a man to the moon, his Cuban-born father and the impact of the health care law.

And in more bizarre moments, he recited an edited version of Dr. Zeus’ ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ poem and compared the fight against Obamacare to the battle against the Nazis.

In surpassing the 18 hour and 23 minute mark this morning, Cruz and his allies notched up the fourth longest occupation of the floor since precise record-keeping began in 1900.

It also eclipsed March’s 12-hour, 52-minute speech by Sen. Rand Paul, who like Cruz is a tea party lawmaker and potential 2016 presidential contender.

Paul was demanding information on the Obama administration’s use of drones to monitor Americans.

Cruz is aiming to scuttle the Senate Democrats’ vote that would send a budget bill back to the house without a measure that would defund the president’s signature health care law.

Conservative Republicans have threatened to level an ultimatum at the president: Defund Obamacare, or risk a government shutdown and the GOP’s refusal to raise the federal government’s all-important debt ceiling.

But the mechanics of advancing the bill were overshadowed by Cruz’s filibuster, which included a reading of Dr. Seuss’ ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ to his daughters back home in Texas.

‘When Americans tried it, they discovered they did not like green eggs and ham and they did not like Obamacare either,’ he said. ‘They did not like Obamacare in a box, with a fox, in a house or with a mouse. It is not working.’

But his actions have provoked anger on both sides of the house as many of his GOP colleagues accuse him of poor strategy and enjoying political grandstanding at the expense of other Republicans.

A Pew Research Center poll published Monday shows that 39 percent of Americans would blame Republicans for a government shutdown, while 36 percent would blame Democrats.

Not wishing to go it entirely alone Sen. Cruz drafted in some help a few hours into the parliamentary stunt, yielding the floor to Sen. Paul, then to Sen. Marco Rubio, and again for a question from Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts.

Utah’s Mike Lee, Louisiana’s David Vitter and Alabama’s Jeff Sessions also asked questions, pausing the forward motion for minutes at a time while Cruz caught his breath.

The Texas Republican is trying to halt the implementation of President Obama’s national health insurance overhaul, and said he’s acting on behalf of ’26 million Texans and 300 million Americans’.

But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the chamber’s top Democrat, put down a marker earlier in the day with a promise that ‘there will be no filibuster today’.

While Cruz apparently didn’t get the memo, or more likely ignored it, it’s unlikely his filibuster-by-committee will change any results.

CHIEF FILIBUSTER: TED’S TOP 10

1. ‘I will credit my father, he invented…green eggs and ham… he would put green food coloring in. Green Eggs and Ham was my favorite book as a little boy.’

2. On comparing fighting Obamacare to fighting the Nazis: ‘If you go to the 1940s, Nazi Germany. We saw in Britain, Neville Chamberlain, who told the British people, “Accept the Nazis. Yes, they’ll dominate the continent of Europe but that’s not our problem. Let’s appease them. Why? Because it can’t be done. We can’t possibly stand against them”.’

3. On comparing the costs of sending a man to the moon to the cost of defunding Obamacare: ‘The moon might be as intimidating as Obamacare’

4.’It is apparently very, very important to be invited to all the right cocktail parties in town. Now, I’ll confess: I don’t go to a whole lot of cocktail parties in town.’

5. ‘I like their little burgers…I’m a big fan of eating White Castle burgers.’

6. ‘You know, almost all of us are in cheap suits with bad haircuts. Who cares?’

7. ‘They want to make this about a battle of this senator versus that senator, this person versus that person. So it’s all personal. It’s like reading the Hollywood gossip pages.’

8. ‘I don’t know if it’s the water, something in the air, the cherry blossoms, but people get here and they stop listening to the American people.’

9. ‘We don’t work for the lobbyists with tasseled loafers who walk the halls, but the single mom working in the diner.’

10. ‘I guarantee all of the pundits that we see going on TV and intoning in deep baritone voices, “This can’t be done.” If this were back in the 18th century, they would be going on, I don’t know, maybe [with] pigeon carriers or something.’

Biden has NO IDEA what the ‘Christian thing to do’ would be

Gaffe-a-Minute Biden dares to call ANYONE a hypocrite?  Having people like Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and yes, Barack Obama DARE to lecture ANYONE on what’s the “Christian” thing to do is absolutely laughable and ridiculous.

Is it the “Christian” thing to do to support the slaughter of MILLIONS of children?

Biden, Pelosi, and Obama seem to think so.  Biden and Pelosi, please go talk to the bishops of the Catholic Church you claim to be a part of.

Is it the “Christian” thing to do to reward millions of people for illegal behavior by punishing those who have NOT broken the law?

Biden, Pelosi, and Obama seem to think so.

Is it the “Christian” thing to do to FORCIBLY take from one person to give to another?

Biden, Pelosi, and Obama seem to think so.

For these colossal hypocrites to open their mouths to address ANYONE with ANY words other than “I’m sorry” is at best infuriating.

Biden: Immigration Reform ‘The Christian Thing to Do’

by Debra Heine 20 Jun 2013

Speaking at the National Hispanic Prayer Breakfast Thursday, Vice President and self styled theologian Joe Biden suggested that Republicans who profess to be Christians are hypocrites because they oppose comprehensive immigration reform that does not secure the border.

Biden (a pro-abortion Catholic) said, “Many of these same [GOP] representatives talk about their Christianity and their fidelity to the Bible, but they forget Matthew Chapter 25, Verse 34, where scripture teaches us: ‘I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty — you gave me drink. I was a stranger, and you welcomed me.’”

Biden later added, “It’s the right thing to do; it’s the Christian thing to do. But it’s also an incredibly practical thing to do.”

Since Biden considers himself somewhat of an arbiter of what Christians should and shouldn’t do, I wonder what he would say about Nancy Pelosi’s comments characterizing late-term abortions as “sacred ground”, which has  has drawn fire from a national organization of Catholic priests active in pro-life work.

Crime is Only Legal If You’re a Politician

There is no “rule of law” in America anymore. There is only RULE.  We go to jail for what is PERFECTLY LEGAL for congress and the president to do.  WHY is it “legal” for them to do what we are forbidden to do?  BECAUSE THEY MAKE THE RULES, AND ARE ACCOUNTABLE TO NO ONE.  It’s not just democrats or republicans.  It’s ALL of them.

Look at all the politicians who went to Washington as financial nobodies, but who are now worth millions and millions of dollars.  Harry Reid, John Boehner, and Nancy Pelosi come immediately to mind.  Are you going to try to tell me they got that rich that fast on their congressional salary alone?  If so, you’re a special kind of stupid.  They have made it perfectly legal for themselves to do “insider trading.”  They buy and sell stocks based completely on the knowledge of laws that they themselves write, knowing how it will help or harm an industry or company.  Remember Martha Stewart?  She WENT TO JAIL for trading some stocks because she had word of what was going to happen to it.

Do you think perhaps we should let Martha Stewart lead the pitchfork brigade that storms Washington DC to burn it down?

In Gutting The STOCK Act, Congress Plays By Its Own Rules

By Sakib Ahmed on April 26th, 2013

The STOCK Act, a law that was designed to stop insider trading among government officials, was gutted last week when a key part of the law was repealed unanimously by Congress and signed by President Barack Obama. But if anything, it’s more of a surprise that Congress passed the law with such a wide margin in the first place given its ubiquity in Washington.

In an investigation a year and half ago, 60 Minutes uncovered evidence of several instances of insider trading among prominent government officials. The trades, while technically legal can hardly be considered ethical. One of these trades involved Alabama Representative Spencer Bachus, then the ranking Republican member on the House Financial Services Committee back in September 2008. Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke were holding closed door briefings with congressional leaders, and privately warning them that a global financial meltdown could occur within a few days.

Examiner: $1.8 trillion shock: Obama regs cost 20-times estimate

Most Americans really have no freaking idea how much Obamacare is really going to cost us.  The shell game Obama, Pelosi, and Reid used to cover up the truth, combined with the smoke screen the media is providing, have kept most Americans in the dark.  Obama’s Cloward and Piven strategy of overwhelming the government bureaucracy with entitlement demands to collapse the system and cause a revolution is working to perfection.

$1.8 trillion shock: Obama regs cost 20-times estimate

September 20, 2012 | 8:51 am

Current federal regulations plus those coming under Obamacare will cost American taxpayers and businesses $1.8 trillion annually, more than twenty times the $88 billion the administration estimates, according to a new roundup provided to Secrets from the libertarian Competitive Enterprise Institute.

And it could grow, warned the author of the report, Clyde Wayne Crews, a CEI vice president.

Labor unions primary recipients of Obamacare waivers

Here’s more evidence of the crony capitalism, a.k.a. Marxism, that is the modus operandi of the Obama administration. There is absolutely nothing positive, especially over the long term, for America in Obamacare. It MUST be repealed in its entirety.

Labor unions primary recipients of Obamacare waivers

More Political Payola from Obama for his Cronies

9:18 PM 01/06/2012

Labor unions continued to receive the overwhelming majority of waivers from the president’s health care reform law since the Obama administration tightened application rules last summer.

Documents released in a classic Friday afternoon news dump show that labor unions representing 543,812 workers received waivers from President Barack Obama‘s signature legislation since June 17, 2011.

By contrast, private employers with a total of 69,813 employees, many of whom work for small businesses, were granted waivers.

The Department of Health and Human Services revised the rules governing applications for health reform waivers June 17, 2011, amid a steady stream of controversial news reports, including The Daily Caller’s story that nearly 20 percent of last May’s waivers went to businesses in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s district in California.

The labor unions receiving waivers include those that are monitored under the 1947 Taft-Hartley Act, and those that are not. The waivers granted since June 17 are valid until 2013, but recipients must make sure their employees understand the “limits of their coverage,” according to HHS documents.

HHS granted waivers on a year-by-year basis under its initial application process, but waivers granted after June 17 are valid for a maximum of two-and-a-half years. (RELATED: Full coverage of the health care law)

By and large, unions backed the health care overhaul, a law from which nearly a half million of their workers are now exempt.

Are Liberals Actually Human?

Well, maybe. Just barely…

Are Liberals Actually Human?

By Burt Prelutsky (Archive) · Thursday, May 26, 2011

Two questions that often plague me are what planet do liberals hail from, and why don’t they go back?

For instance, Michael Moore, who looks more and more like Helen Thomas every day, along with many of his fellow leftists, has insisted that, morally, there was no difference between Osama bin Laden’s killing 3,000 people on 9/11 and our killing him. Just how fatheaded do you have to be to even suggest such a thing?

But it’s not uncommon for liberals to cite moral equivalence where there isn’t any. They do it when it comes to equating cold-blooded murder of innocent people with the state’s execution of the murderer; they do it in regards to the Middle East not only when they condemn Israel for defending itself against Arab and Muslim terrorists, but when they equate Christian martyrs with the blood-thirsty Egyptian mobs who burn down their churches and slaughter them in the streets.

The reaction to the killing of Osama bin Laden was interesting on many levels. To begin with, people argued whether the proper term was assassinate, kill, execute or even murder. I think the appropriate word was exterminate, which is generally the way we refer to rodent and pest control.

Then we had the problem inherent in Barack Obama, a liberal who not only opposes capital punishment, but who campaigned for terrorists to be tried like common criminals in civilian courts, serving as judge, jury and executioner, of a man who was never Mirandized, provided with an attorney or given the opportunity to face his accusers; and, for good measure, whose fate was Seal-ed without the okay of the U.N., the World Court or Rosie O’Donnell.

Can you imagine the stink that would have been raised by the MSM if George W. Bush had green-lighted the operation? At the very least, the environmentalists would have gone berserk, comparing the dumping of bin Laden’s carcass to BP Oil’s contamination of the ocean.

Finally, if any additional proof of the Left’s intellectual dishonesty were needed, we have Nancy Pelosi stating, back in 2006, that, “Even if Osama bin Laden is caught tomorrow, it is five years too late…the damage he has done is done. And even to capture him now I don’t think makes us any safer.” But five years later, she has the gall to announce: “The death of Osama bin Laden marks the most significant development in our fight against Al-Qaida. I salute President Obama, his national security team, Director Panetta, our men and women in the intelligence community and military, and other nations who supported this effort for their leadership in achieving this major accomplishment. The death of Osama bin Laden is historic.”

You would have thought Mrs. Pelosi might at least have squeezed George W. Bush in there at some point, perhaps in place of those anonymous “other nations.” Come to think of it, which nations do you think she had in mind? Luxembourg? North Korea? Pakistan, perhaps?

But that’s the sort of embarrassing thing that’s bound to occur when, as is all too typical of liberal politicians, one values partisanship above principles, and make a practice of rewarding the vainglorious and the abysmally ignorant, people such as Mrs. Pelosi and Harry Reid, with leadership positions.
