    House Republicans nominated House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) for Speaker on Tuesday, making him the third GOP lawmaker who will attempt to get 217 votes to secure the gavel. The conference selected Emmer — the No. 3 House Republican — for the position in a secret ballot during an internal election that lasted three hours, choosing him over six other candidates vying for the job. Two Republicans withdrew their names from the race before voting began. Emmer, 62, will now take his nomination to the House floor, where he will have to muster enough votes to win the gavel...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — On the brink of a federal government shutdown, Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced a dramatic pivot Saturday, trying to push a 45-day funding bill through the House with Democratic help — a move that could keep government open but most certainly risks his job.Republican lawmakers met behind closed doors early at the Capitol with hours to go before the midnight deadline needed to fund government operations or face a disruptive federal closure.The new approach would leave behind aid to Ukraine, a White House priority opposed by a growing number of GOP lawmakers, but the plan would increase federal...

    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Saturday backtracked and said he will keep the $300 million of Ukraine aid in the Pentagon funding bill. snip McCarthy on Saturday said he will keep Ukraine aid in the Pentagon appropriations bill just one day after vowing to strip the funding. In another article, the Hill said: “McCarthy told reporters that he expects Greene to oppose the procedural vote to advance the four spending bills because of the inclusion of Ukraine aid.” Congressman Byron Donalds: “A lot of my colleagues, Freedom Caucus members, etc., need to be very concerned about the fact that we...

    Kroger is contracting with former Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) in a lobbying push to win approval of its proposed merger with Albertsons, the company said in a press release. Boehner, who works for law and lobbying firm Squire Patton Boggs, will “provide strategic counsel” to Kroger executives and won’t register to lobby. Squire Patton Boggs’ Tommy Andrews and David Schnittger, two former Boehner aides, and Caren Street, former chief of staff to then-Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) and executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus, will lobby on Kroger’s behalf. Kroger is hiring several well-connected lobbyists as it seeks to dissuade...

    Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) stated on the House floor Thursday that Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is a “different” type of politician from former Speaker Paul Ryan, former Speaker John Boehner, and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Mast, speaking to nominate McCarthy for speaker of the House for the eighth time, tried to draw a contrast between McCarthy and former and current establishment Republican leaders. “I’m proud to say that Kevin McCarthy is different,” Mast argued. “He is different. That is why for those I was speaking to earlier, the process is where it is today. He is different. He’s not Paul...

    Former House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) became choked up on Wednesday as he spoke about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) at a ceremony for the unveiling of Pelosi’s speaker’s portrait. Boehner, who is known for crying, was speaking during the event about his and his family’s appreciation for Pelosi, whom he succeeded in 2011, when Boehner became tearful. "Madam Speaker, I have to say, my girls told me, ‘Tell the speaker how much we admire her,’” Boehner said as tears filled his eyes and the crowd applauded.

    In Washington, DC, it was no secret that Joe Biden yearned for the presidency, despite his 1988 and 2008 campaigns which both failed to gain significant traction. However, in August 2008, then-Senator Barack Obama of Illinois tapped Biden — then a longtime Delaware senator — to become his vice presidential running mate, catapulting him to the highest echelons of government after the ticket's successful campaign.

    Political writer Peter Schweizer’s latest book reportedly accuses 20 current and former GOP members of having essentially sold out to China. Released late last month, “Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win” has attracted attention thus far mainly for its bombshells about President Joe Biden and his extremely wealthy family. But also contained within the book is a treasure trove of bombshells about elected Republicans, ranging from current Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell to former President George H.W. Bush. Regarding McConnell, Schweizer reportedly writes that the Senate leader and his wife both “enjoy some of the deepest and...

    Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer on Sunday revealed how the Biden family have profited from business with individuals “linked to the highest levels of Chinese intelligence.” Schweizer, the author of Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win, said Biden’s son Hunter, while the elder Biden was serving as both vice president and president, was engaged in deals with individuals tied to the highest levels of Chinese intelligence. He called the Biden family’s business dealings “unprecedented.” “One of the most startling things we uncovered is the simple fact that the Biden family, while he was vice president of...

    In his new memoir, On the House, chronicling his 40 years in public service, former Speaker of the House John Boehner does not mince words about his former colleagues. He describes fellow Republicans who opposed President George W. Bush's stimulus package as being from "Crazytown." The Tea Party is labeled as the "chaos caucus." And when he gets to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, he pronounces him "Lucifer in the flesh" and uses other words unfit to print in these pages. As for President Joe Biden, whom he's known for 30 years and with whom he shared the 2016 Laetare Medal...

    During an interview on CNN’s State of the Union, Boehner focused on what he thinks is the importance of reaching across the aisle. The segment began with CNN’s Dana Bash claiming there have been “47 mass shootings in the United States in just over the last month.” Bash provided no substantiation for the claim of 47 mass shootings. Instead, she just looked at Boehner and said, “Polls show that vast majorities of Americans support at least some new gun restrictions.” She then noted that gun control was not passed after Sandy Hook when Boehner was Speaker, and asked if gun...

    Former Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that a string of mass shootings had become an embarrassment to America. Anchor Dana Bash asked, “47 mass shootings in the United States in just over the last month. And I know you know this, polls show the vast majority of Americans support at least some new gun restrictions. When you were speaker, there were 20 first-graders killed in Newtown, Connecticut. Looking back, do you regret not passing laws then, and do you to see Republicans come to the table now at least to...

    ...Boehner, who had opposed drugs as an elected official, received the high honor of heading up the National Cannabis Roundtable to lobby for drug legalization. The former House Speaker came by the position naturally since he was already on the board of Acreage Holdings. Acreage Holdings has one of the biggest marijuana operations in America. As Democrats began to legalize drugs in select states, companies were formed to get in on the action. But despite all the hype, the marijuana business was a disaster. Legalizing and taxing pot just meant users buying cheap ‘illegal’ pot from drug dealers. Acreage tried...

    Political relic John Boehner must’ve been 8-cocktails deep when he decided to start a feud with the very nimble and savage Ted Cruz. It wasn’t smart and it didn’t work out in his favor. It all started when Boehner wrote a book. And speaking of that book – besides Liz Cheney and the pedophiles at the Lincoln Project, who on God’s green earth would buy a book that John Boehner wrote? At any rate, some clueless publishing house had cash to burn and decided to pay John Boehner money to recall his booze-filled days as Speaker of The House. And...

    Former House Speaker John Boehner on Wednesday said “traditional Democrat” President Joe Biden has “caved to the left” despite vowing on the campaign trail to work in a bipartisan manner. Boehner noted during Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom” that the Democratic Party “is being taken over by the left-wing progressives.” He added that as a result, Biden “has sacrificed any chance of bipartisanship.”
