John Hawkins writes at Townhall: "Boehner Resigned? Good. Go Cry, Drink And Surrender Somewhere Else."
Well, Boehner's resignation is far too late for me and especially far too late for the Fast and Furious investigation that he derailed because the FBI was blackmailing him. Long-time readers will recall that when the Issa committee got around to noticing the fact, uncovered by this blog and FOX News' William La Jeunesse, that the middle men who the ATF agents were forbidden by their superiors from following (the ones who actually transported the weapons across the border) were the Miramontes brothers who were paid FBI informants, that Boehner intervened and used every bit of his influence to choke off further inquiry.
In fact, this may have played a role in Boehner's decision to resign. Caveat lector: I have only a single source for the following statement but it is a source that has proven reliable in the past. In the meeting with conservative members of his caucus the day before, Boehner insisted that he wasn't going to fight for the defunding of Planned Parenthood. The meeting then turned stormy, with promises to have a vote to "vacate the chair." Boehner, according to this source, was still defiant until someone threatened to "tell what they knew about Fast and Furious and the FBI blackmail." Boehner, according to this source, "turned ashy white under that fake tan" and "looked stricken." He got "deathly quiet" and then changed the subject. Again, this is a single source statement, and I would put it in the class of rumor except for where it came from. The reader is invited to use his or her own judgment on that. I am simply reporting what I was told by a single source that I trust
Is this where we really are?
Boehner: Goodbye to Old Yellowstain. “Someone threatened to ‘tell what they knew about Fast and Furious and the FBI blackmail.’”
I think this is exactly where we are.
Ted Cruz must be squeaky clean to take them on like this.
Yes, I believe it is.
I agree. And this just emphasizes how serious the threat to our nation really is.
So far 100% concurrence.
Tom Cotton waits in the wings...
Not to mention his resignation coincided with the new discovery of Hilary’s 900+ “lost” emails.
The plot thickens......
We have Petraeus, Haster and many others that were caught up in Obama’s NSA monitoring. It’s a better than fair guess to think Beohner was caught up in the same way.
We elected people who we thought were principled conservatives, but instead got venal and corrupt politicians.
As corrupt as any of the Democrats. God help our beloved nation! There are very few out there that we can trust.
We need to restart that investigation.
“How widespread do you think blackmail, bribery and threats are at this level in the Federal Government?”
I suspect much, much more than people realize. They flipped John Roberts on Obamacare. The Ruling Elite are not nice people. They have too much at stake.
I fear for Trump if he gets the nomination. The drug cartels are not going to want him winning. Radical Islam won’t want him winning.
I couldn't stay, so I don't know why or what was said ... but it WAS an interview
I NEVER see her on TV but am interested in what disinformation she has to spread.
Under the DiC and his beard, the answer is a) rampant and b)we are that corrupt
If you asked me several years ago.....I would have said it does not happen often, but after watching Justice Roberts stop, in mid-course, from voting down Obamacare, and then go on and rewrite the opinion I changed my mind. Someone got to Roberts, with something.
