Freshmen House Repubs already ignoring campaign promise by backing Boehner

Cynics say elections don’t make a thing in America.
The report below is more grist for their mill.

Cristina Marcos reports for The Hill, Jan. 7, 2015, that conservative groups are blasting several new House Republicans who backtracked on campaign promises to oppose John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) bid for another term as Speaker.

During their 2014 races, those Republicans had pledged to vote for alternatives to Boehner and the current House GOP leadership.

Here are the turncoat freshmen House Republicans:

1. Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-Wis.): Grothman indicated last year that he’d be a thorn in Boehner’s side upon arriving to Congress, though he didn’t explicitly promise to vote against him. Grothman said at an August debate, “I would have no problem looking for an alternative to Speaker Boehner. I have no problem standing up to Republican leadership.” But Grothman ultimately voted for Boehner, leaving conservatives who predicted Grothman would join their grassroots efforts disappointed. RedState blogger Erick Erickson wrote, “Elections have a way of voluntarily and willingly neutering congressmen. There will be no standing up by Glenn Grothman.”

2. Rep. Jody Hice (R-Ga.): Hice had expressed dissent during the House GOP leadership elections in November, but voted for Boehner’s continuation as House Speaker. Hice blamed his vote on a poorly organized rebellion: “I truly regret that a proper campaign was not waged, with the issues fully debated, that would have allowed a conservative to prevail in November, yet I huddled with fellow conservatives up until 10 minutes before the House was called to order,” Hice vowed that conservatives will keep Boehner on guard in the new Congress, saying, “Indeed, today is not the final verdict on the Speaker’s leadership or even a vote of confidence. If he does not deliver on his pledge to lead as a conservative, we will displace him.”

3. Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.): Like Hice, Loudermilk also blamed poor organization, saying he had voted for Boehner because no “viable alternative” came forward. Insisting that he had expressed dissent during the closed-door House GOP conference leadership elections in November, Loudermilk said, “When Republicans chose our nominee, I was one of three who voted for new leadership. However, nearly two months later, we still were not presented with another serious candidate.”
4. Rep. Alex Mooney (R-W.Va.)
5. Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) 
6. Rep. Mark Walker (R-N.C.): Walker said during the 2014 campaign that he’d vote for Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) who chairs the panel investigating the 2012 attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi. But Walker chose to vote for Boehner after an alternative candidate didn’t come forward in November, and maintained that “A change in House leadership, at this time and in this way, would have detracted from our conservative message.”

Only one freshman, Rep. Gary Palmer (R-Ala.), opposed Boehner on the floor in Tuesday’s vote after pledging to do so during his campaign. But Palmer seems to be confused because he voted for Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), who is not a member of the House, to replace Boehner as House Speaker.

Three other freshmen Republicans who didn’t make campaign pledges also defected, but it’s newcomers who made promises that are under fire.

The conservative Madison Project (MP) excoriated the defectors — Loudermilk, Mooney, and Ratcliffe — whom MP had endorsed during the 2014 campaign, for violating a pledge they had signed with MP’s political action committee that, if they were elected to the House, they would vote against the current leadership. MP’s political director Drew Ryun said in a statement: “Choosing to side with the Washington establishment and turn a blind eye to John Boehner’s attacks on conservatives and his unwillingness to stand up to President Obama and executive amnesty was a slap in the face to the conservative movement.”

Ryun said that Madison Project had spoken to grassroots conservatives in the respective districts to put the lawmakers “on notice”: “This vote and act of betrayal to our conservative principles will be at the forefront of our minds when deciding to endorse in the future.”

All empty threats.

Obama gives America the finger

No wonder Obama the POS is already giving Congress and Republicans the finger, saying, “Sure, [Republican members of Congress and I will] disagree on some things. We’ll have to compromise on others. I’ll act on my own when it’s necessary.”

A Wayne Allyn Root Christmas

Wayne Allyn Root
Merry Christmas to all my friends, fans and loyal supporters. This is a day for reflecting on this great country and thanking God for all of our blessings.
Now many of you probably think I don’t like President Obama. That’s not true. I’ve actually been thinking of what gifts to give to my old Columbia college classmate for Christmas. I’ve come up with 15 holiday gift ideas for Obama and his family. Everyone of them fits him like a glove.
Here are the 15 perfect holiday gifts for Obama:
Number one…To remind Obama of the economy he created, may Michelle work in a part-time low wage job, with no benefits. It might do her some good to experience the real Obama economy.
Number two…I’d like to see Obama’s Secret Service disarmed, since he doesn’t think rest of us need guns for protection. What’s good for the goose, is good for the gander!
Number three…I’d like to remove the fence around the White House, since Obama doesn’t think we need any fence at our Southern border with Mexico, why should he need a fence around the White House. Either fences or walls work…or they don’t. If we don’t need one at the border…and Obama says there’s no border problem…then obviously a fence isn’t needed at the border to the White House either. Let’s all live with “the honor system.”
Number four…A Christmas dinner at White House prepared and served by illegal immigrants who just arrived from the Ebola Zone, since he thinks the rest of us shouldn’t worry about Ebola (or illegal immigration). Good luck and Bon Apetite. Oh by the way, you probably think the Ebola threat is gone. That’s because the media has agreed to partner with the Obama administration to coverup the truth. It was revealed just days ago that the CDC is monitoring over 1300 potential Ebola cases inside America right now. Did you know that? I didn’t think so.
Number five…Of course, that White House Christmas dinner should be prepared with careful adherence to the standards of Michelle’s “nutritious” public school lunch program. I hope Obama enjoys one stick of celery and one cracker. That should be yummy!
Number six…Just like Obama, I believe in “fairness” and “equality.” What could be more “fair” than seeing Obama’s health insurance cancelled like the rest of us. He promised “If you like your insurance, you can keep it.” I just lost mine. So have millions of others. It’s time for Obama to enjoy some of his own medicine. Besides…Michelle’s policy doesn’t provide coverage for pregnancy, Viagra or mental health issues. That’s not “fair.” So it’s gotta go!
Number seven…The end of all criminal background checks for any black employee hired at White House. Why not let Obama enjoy the same policy that his Equal Employment Opportunity Commission tried to enforce on every business in America. You didn’t know that, did you? Obama’s EEOC actually tried to ban background checks just for black potential employees. The courts struck it down.
Number eight…May Sasha & Malia enjoy their 2015 school year at a fine inner city public school. After all, Obama believes those teachers unions really “care about the kids.” Let’s try out his theory in the real world on his own kids.
Number nine…Since Obama is such a believer in climate change, may he spend the last two years of his Presidency riding around in a Prius, instead of his heavy, gas-guzzling bullet-proof limousine. And of course Air Force One has to go too. From now on, Obama flies coach…on American (the perfect airline for a guy who wants to fundamentally change America).
Number ten…If Obama comes under withering fire from terrorists, may he call his favorite General and find him asleep with orders that he not be disturbed for the night. A little taste of the last moments of our heroes at Benghazi might be the ideal Christmas gift for Obama!
Number eleven…Since Obama doesn’t want any of us to have coal anymore, I hope he gets coal in his Christmas stocking hanging above White House fireplace. May it always remind him of the plentiful cheap energy he took away from middle class Americans, in order to bankrupt and punish us for (and these were his words back in 2008) “clinging to our guns and Bibles.”
Number twelve…Also in that Christmas stocking I’d like to gift Obama two books he ought to read: the book that best describes what Obama has done to America, my national bestseller, “The Murder of the Middle Class”…and then there’s the biography about Obama’s life called “The Audacity of a Dope.”
Number thirteen…Don’t forget an intrusive IRS audit under the tree, ordered by Valerie Jarrett. I hope this IRS audit extends to Jonathan Gruber, the architect of Obamacare who accepted over $1.4 million dollars to design a healthcare program to deceive the “stupid voters”…and Jack Lew, the U.S. Treasury Secretary who keeps his money in the Cayman Islands…and of course the IRS audit should extend to Michelle Obama’s Princeton Black Alumni classmate- whose company received hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to design the Obamacare web site (that did not work).
Number fourteen…I gift the Obama family a week underground in an Israeli bomb shelter, fearing for their lives alongside the citizens of Israel, whose lives Obama has placed in peril again and again- with his support and sympathy for radical terrorists…Palestinian terrorists…Iran’s nuclear bomb…and of course the wonderful “Arab Spring.” Not to mention his incompetence towards ISIS. Yes, you’ve made the world a much safer place Mr. Obama…for all of the enemies of America, freedom, capitalism, Christianity and Israel. Is that a coincidence?
*And finally my last Christmas wish for Obama…
IMPEACHMENT in the New Year…fraud convictions and prison time for every Obama aide involved in the Obamacare deception and the IRS scandal…and a partridge in a pear tree.
WOW, wouldn’t that list make for a Happy New Year!
I haven’t even gotten to Obama’s anti-police propaganda inciting the cold-blooded assassination of two New York City policemen only days ago…or Marxist Obama doing a big favor for his communist comrades Fidel & Raul Castro by saving Cuba from imminent economic collapse…I’ll save all that for next year.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.

Democrats lost in 2014 because of ObamaCare


US Speaker of the House and members of the House Democratic Caucus march from the Cannon House Office Building to the House Chamber

The party’s over, Nancy.

Fast forward: December 2016

Barry seems to have forgotten his own words. But while he’s been busy the last 6 years doing his obscene end-zone dance, Americans have been growing more determined then ever to be free from him and his posse. The Democrats have realized their defeat came because of Obamacare, and are deserting the president as fast as they can scurry away.
The Republicans, misinterpreting election results as one more favor at a Hamptons cocktail party, have back-handed the American voters. They apparently didn’t think we noticed. Well it’s time we let them know what we think.

Boehner, we’re coming for you in the next election

Breitbart just published the following Q&A interview with Sarah Palin, a conservative who was famously thrown under the bus by RINO John McCain.


1. What do you think of Speaker Boehner having President Obama ‘whip votes’ from the White House in order to pass this bill?


Obama_Boehner: Kissing Cousins

It stinks to high heaven. Did arrogant politicians not get the memo that Obama’s agenda was decisively defeated in last month’s historic midterm landslide? Good Lord, America said loud and clear not just “no” but “hell no” to Obama’s failed policies. Americans who pay attention said absolutely no to Obama’s amnesty for illegal aliens.
We also said no to the mother-of-all unfunded mandates, Obamacare, and voters believed promises that they would ratchet down the $18 trillion debt. Well, our bad for apathetically trusting politicians. No, on second thought, it’s not “our bad.” Some of us warned and worked hard to elect candidates who would buck the status quo. Many conscientious Americans did all they could to open the eyes of low-information voters. It was tough going up against Obama’s lapdogs in the media and the power liberals have to play their politics of personal destruction against commonsense conservatives.
But really how out-of-touch do these politicians have to be to misunderstand our recent mandate to stop Barack Obama’s fundamental transformation of the greatest nation on earth?
2. Only 162 Republicans voted for this bill–a bill that will take decision making away from a Republican controlled Congress in 4 weeks–does that strike you as outrageous?
It’s baffling really. The Republican Leadership in the House just flipped American voters the bird by sidelining the new Congress we just elected. I want the names of all 162 yahoos who would squander the opportunity to respect the will of the people and get America on the right track. Please print their names so we can ask them, “What the heck are you thinking?!”
And thank you to the 67 House Republicans who did vote no. Let’s remind everyone of their names also…

Sarah Palin: It’s RINO Season

To clarify, this is a humorous critique of our elected officials. We are absolutely NOT calling for any violence against anyone. But we do mean to REMOVE FROM OFFICE through our votes, those who have been destroying our country. ~TD

18-Year-Old Republican Defeats Democrat

Saira Blair, 18, has won a seat on the West Virginia House of Delegates.
Yesterday in the general election, the pro-gun, pro-family and pro-business candidate defeated her Democrat opponent in a landslide, 63 percent to 30 percent. She plans to temporarily postpone her freshman year at West Virginia University so she can attend the state legislature’s 60-day session.
On her Facebook page, Blair offered these comments about her win:
“I am honored and humbled to have been elected the youngest member to ever serve in the West Virginia House of Delegates. I am deeply grateful to my supporters, volunteers, friends and family for their hard work during the campaign. I also want to thank my opponents for a running a positive and competitive race. For far too long, West Virginians have been burdened by high unemployment, a sluggish economy, and a government unwilling to listen to the needs of its citizens. When I made the decision to run for public office, I did so because I firmly believe that my generation’s voice, fresh perspective and innovative ideas can help solve some of our state’s most challenging issues. History has been made tonight in West Virginia, and while I am proud of all that we have accomplished together, it is the future of this state that is now my singular focus…”
Saira Blair originally decided to run for office because many of her contemporaries were being forced to leave the state to find employment somewhere else. “I think it’s important for us to bring jobs to the state of West Virginia. I see a lot of people get their high school and their college education in West Virginia and then they leave the state because they can’t find a good paying job,” Blair explained.

Obama chucks Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel: Why we should be concerned

Obama’s firing of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is a forewarning of dangers to come. In the words of Stratfor founder George Friedman who calls Obama “a failed presidency”: “The period of a failed presidency is…not a quiet time…. The last two years of a failed presidency are mostly about foreign policy and are not very pleasant to watch.”

2014 Vote Fraud: Mayor urges Louisiana Democrats to vote twice

B.Christopher Agee reports for Western Journalism, Dec. 1, 2014, that the Black Conservatives Fund obtained a video (see above) of Don Cravins Sr. — the Democrat mayor of Opelousas, Louisiana, and the father of the chief of staff of Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-Louisiana) — brazenly urging fellow Democrats to commit voter fraud by voting twice.
Opelousas is a city in and the parish seat of St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, located at the junction of Interstate 49 and U.S. Route 190.
Donald Cravins Sr.
Cravins made the speech on November 3, 2014, the day before the midterm elections. His son, Don Cravins Jr., who serves as Landrieu’s highest ranking staffer, was present at the event where his father instructed fellow Democrats to “go out tomorrow and vote” for a particular ballot initiative. And “If you early voted, go vote again tomorrow.
The Democrat crowd responded with some sporadic laughter, however, Cravins continued his endorsement of voter fraud with little evidence that he intended his comments as a joke. “One more time’s not going to hurt,” he insisted. “Tomorrow, we’re gonna elect Earl Taylor as the D.A., so he won’t prosecute you if you vote twice.”

State Sen. Elbert Guillory

State Sen. Elbert Guillory – look at the goodness & strength in his eyes!

Louisiana State Sen. Elbert Guillory — a good man — presented the video footage, explaining that even though Mayor Cravins “may not be a household name in most of America,” he is assuredly “part of the Louisiana Democrat establishment.”

See: “Black senator: Why I’m no longer a Democrat” and “Elbert Guillory: Mary Landrieu is not helping Blacks.”

Thankfully, as Guillory reminds us, despite Mayor Cravins’ encouraging of voter fraud, Louisiana has two safeguards – a Republican administration and voter identification laws – with which the state can combat attempts to subvert the will of voters.

GQ magazine names Obama as one of "least influential" people of 2014

Bush's fault
First, chairman of Stratfor George Friedman calls Obama’s a failed presidency. (Stratfor describes itself “a leader in the field of global intelligence”.) Friedman writes:

We have now entered the final phase of Barack Obama’s presidency, and like those of several other presidents since World War II, it is ending in what we call a state of failure.

Now GQ magazine calls Obama one of the “least influential” people of 2014 — a list that includes such inconsequential luminaries as actor Shia LaBeouf and the Brazilian soccer team.
At the end of the year, GQ publishes its list of “least influential” people of that year, defined as “people who took up vast clouds of oxygen, gave us back nothing of use, and probably helped accelerate the death of our planet.”
This is Obama’s second year in a row on this list.
Although the magazine insists their list of Least Influential People of 2014 is “in no particular order,” nevertheless Barack Obama is number two, after number one’s Bono and U2. Here’s what GQ‘s Drew Magary says about Obama:

Why are you still on Martha’s Vineyard?! Missouri is BURNING. Putin is conquering Europe. The CDC is playing nude Twister with Ebola patients. U2 is forcing bad songs on everyone. The NSA won’t stop watching me masturbate. I need you ON THIS. Are you even president anymore? When Obama got blasted for golfing shortly after ISIS beheaded journalist James Foley, he said, “I should’ve anticipated the optics.” How do you win the presidency without knowing that golfing makes you look rich and indifferent?

Here’s GQ’s unranked list of the 30 least influential people of 2014:

  1. Bono and U2
  2. Barack Obama
  3. Donald Sterling
  4. Carter Bays and Craig Thomas
  5. Zach Braff
  6. Roger Goodell
  7. Stephen A. Smith
  8. Dwyane Wade

  10. Eric Cantor
  11. Derek Jeter

Democrats get panties all twisted at Sen. Schumer (D) calling Obamacare misguided

As Obama’s approval ratings keep plunging — now at 39% for registered voters and an abysmal 27% for working-class (non college graduates) whites — Democrats are abandoning his sinking ship.
The latest rat to abandon ship is Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who recently called Obamacare “misguided.” That, in turn, has led to other top Democrats getting their panties all twisted into a wad. LOL

shark fight

Democrats in a food fight

Brett Logiuratto reports for Fusion, Nov. 26, 2014:

Sen. Chuck Schumer’s (D-New York) comments on Wednesday about Democrats’ misguided focus on health care in President Barack Obama’s first term prompted backlash from top Democrats and left-leaning groups, who accused him of being politically craven.
At a speech before the National Press Club in Washington on Tuesday, Schumer said Democrats made a mistake by entering into a fight over health care after they passed the 2009 economic stimulus.
His reasoning: Democrats were targeting the uninsured, a population that he said makes up only about 5 percent of registered voters. Only about one-third of the uninsured, he said, are registered or eligible to vote. […]
“After passing the stimulus, Democrats should have continued to propose middle class-oriented programs and built on the partial success of the stimulus, but unfortunately Democrats blew the opportunity the American people gave them. We took their mandate and put all of our focus on the wrong problem – health care reform,” Schumer said.
“The plight of uninsured Americans and the hardships caused by unfair insurance company practices certainly needed to be addressed,” he added. “But it wasn’t the change we were hired to make. Americans were crying out for an end to the recession, for better wages and more jobs — not for changes in their health care.”
It was a characterization with which top Democrats took issue, all the way up to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California), who was instrumental in getting the Affordable Care Act passed into law as the speaker of the House. Through a spokesman, Pelosi said there are “14 million reasons that’s wrong” — referring to 14 million Americans that have gained insurance coverage through various provisions of the law. […]
Multiple Republican and Democratic congressional aides speculated Schumer’s speech was an attempt to forge a break from Obama, who remains largely unpopular, ahead of the 2016 presidential election. But one Senate Democratic aide said the Affordable Care Act was the wrong piece of policy on which to focus. […]
Jon Favreau, a former speechwriter, criticized Schumer for “confirming the public’s most cynical beliefs about the political process.” And Jon Lovett, another former speechwriter, went on an extended rant on Twitter that ended with him saying a test for prospective Democrats is whether they “listen to” or merely “tolerate” Schumer as a prominent voice within the party….

Obama and his mouth, Jon Favreau

Obama and his mouth, Jon Favreau

Note: If Jon Favreau wants to see a political cynic, he should look in his mirror. After graduating from the Catholic College of the Holy Cross in 2003 with a degree in political science, Favreau first worked for the pro-abortion John Kerry, then “graduated” to become a speechwriter for pro-infanticide Obama who thrice voted against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. Taxpayers should know that for his speechwriting being the Mouth of Sauron, Favreau received a 6-figure salary of $172,200 a year. Favreau has aspirations to become a Hollyweirdo by writing a screenplay.
For his part, Jon Lovett is not just a political “speechwriter” hack, he’s also a Hollyweirdo writer and producer.
