John Boehner Betrays Us Again
I have been critical of Boehner well before he became Speaker of the House and with good reason. Principally, because he is the poster child for a feckless, do nothing, little man with big talk, failure who has dropped the ball on the debt ceiling debate, the payroll tax debate, the Keystone Pipeline debate, and the budget debate in spectacular fashion. He is either inept beyond measure, or he is Obama’s go to Benedict Arnold. That’s right, you read me correctly.
Look folks, we don’t have time to be genteel and gentlemanly, our nation is on the verge of collapse and 95 percent of America is completely unaware. As I wrote recently, with what Boehner, Obama, and Congress as a whole are doing to us, we should all be pregnant and they should be charged with sex crimes, (once again, forgive the earthiness of my point).
Earlier this week I “ranted” that 100 Senators decided to bailout one union barbershop with 11 employees, with $230,000 of our money. A barbershop that I can safely say, probably fewer than 5,000 ordinary voters and taxpayers have seen and/or been in its 100 plus year history.
And it gets worse. We expect liberal Democrats to be what they are. Let’s face it, any Party with Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Harry Reid, and Chuck Schumer as the face of their party – I mean, c’mon, either manufactures masks, broomsticks, or pointed hats for halloween or they are an amalgamation of Erebusic druidism designed to bring darkness and insolvency to our nation.
History has taught us to expect more from the Republic Party. But, sadly, the reality is that the Republican Party has transmogrified itself into Democrat Party little. Seven of the first nine planks of the Republican Party at it’s inception in 1856 focused on civil rights. The Republican Party had addressed and corrected separate but equal 75 years before Thurgood Marshall’s legendary Brown v. Board of Education. It was the Democrats who overturned nearly all of the civil rights legislation Republicans were able to pass post Civil War. It was the Republicans who fought for women, blacks, business, and the security of the American way.
But no more. President George W. Bush, boasted on foreign soil in Sofia “see you at the signing” referencing his intention to grant amnesty to illegal aliens. Separate the valid reasons for spending by Bush, and he was still a mega spending globalist, whose theme song should have been “hey big spender.” His justice department obstructed efforts to end race and gender based affirmative action in Michigan. He resisted efforts by myself in my official capacity, and the efforts of others to pardon and release wrongly imprisoned border guards Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean.
And now we have Boehner. It is an open secret that no one discusses, but even if Republicans take the White House and Congress Boehner and leadership have no intentions of repealing Obamacare. I wrote about and commented about same in 2010, and to my point, how much talk have you heard coming from Boehner and Republican leadership about the complete repeal of Obamacare? From time to time we hear repeal and replace. We don’t need to repeal and replace, we need it repealed, and let the free market handle the rest. But I digress.
The unbelievable today is a reader advised me they had heard Boehner was working behind the scenes, to sabotage efforts to hold Eric Holder responsible for his involvement in the illegal gunrunning scheme Fast and Furious. It took little effort to confirm same was indeed as alleged.
Boehner’s office is livid, and adamantly denying there is any truth to the story. But as former Congressman and presidential candidate Tom Tancredo wrote: “Regretfully, such rumors are all too credible given Speaker Boehner’s history of always seeking a compromise even when victory is in sight.” (Boehner Sabotaging Fast and Furious Probe; WND.com; 2/7/12)
I submit Boehner’s efforts are not to protect Holder as such, but to protect Obama. I have argued since last spring, that there is no way Fast and Furious took place without Holder as head of the Justice Department, Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, and Obama himself as president not knowing about it and signing off on it. Not only have I written, but I’ve predicted in numerous interviews, that ultimately nothing would come of the committee hearings on same. But not even cynical me reasoned that Boehner himself would be the one to sabotage efforts to bring these criminals to justice, for the murders of Americans in the dispensation of their jobs, and hundreds of Mexicans.
As Coach Collins and Doug Book wrote: “The terms of the betrayal John Boehner is currently putting together: The Committee will accept the scalps of [Lanny] Breuer and [Jason] Wienstein, DOJ will release enough of the (documents) to condemn them, claim cooperation (thus giving the appearance of recognizing congress’s oversight authority), and Holder will survive – looking like a “leader” for offering them up (along with a few lower level ATF and DOJ folk). The Committee will chalk one in the “Win” column for oversight and holding people accountable. DOJ will have the same for cooperating and accountability. (1) Lovely, isn’t it! Hundreds are dead, including two American agents. One of those dead, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was literally set up for murder by an FBI INFORMANT who, on December 14th of 2010, accompanied and LED the drug cartel rip gang responsible for Terry’s death. The other victim, ICE Agent Jaime Zapata was NOT PERMITTED by LAW to even possess a weapon with which he might have defended himself from his killers! Yet John Boehner will be pleased to sell them out in order to lay claim to the pathetically comic mantle of a tough-minded Republican leader who brought down 2 Obama Regime, Department of Justice higher-ups. That is, with the approval of the White House, of course. (John Boehner to halt Fast and Furious investigation, sell out to Erica Holder and White House; coachisright.com; 2/7/12)
This is your Congress at work and the people betraying us aren’t just the Obaminites, it is those of our own party. It is time for us to wake up, get angry, and vote these people out. Oh, and by the way, did you hear any of the information I shared in my rants this week or that Dan shared in his “money and politics” column, on the evening news, FoxNews included? No, of course you didn’t, because they won’t broadcast anything they’re told not to.
