    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.
  • Peter Schweizer’s new book exposes 20 ‘red-handed’ Republicans who allegedly sold out to China

    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.”

    Former House Speaker John Boehner (R) said Monday on ABC’s “The View” that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was “Lucifer in the flesh.” Co-host Sara Haines said, “You aren’t shy about your animosity for senator Ted Cruz, but you take it to the next level in the book writing, ‘There is nothing more dangerous than a reckless bleep who thinks he is smarter than everyone else.’ Now you say even Mitch McConnell hated him with a passion, ‘I didn’t know Mitch had in him.’ And we hear you ad-libbed some rather colorful commentary we can’t repeat here when you recorded the...

    No one could possibly be glad to see former House Speaker John Boehner (R-McCain) back in the arena, with the possible exception of his ideological kin such as Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski, but he is newly useful to the political and media elites, and so we are once again being treated to his leathery visage on the morning shows. Boehner, you see, has a new memoir out in which he viciously slams Trump and other Republican leaders, thus giving the media a new example they can trot out of what Republicans really ought to be: docile, submissive, supportive of...

    Mark Levin · @Marklevinshow 3 hours ago · Impressions 191287 John Boehner is an idiot. Whenever I saw him, which was rarely and usually with others, he had a drink in one hand and a cigarette in the other. Now, he has a stupid book, no doubt written by another, which he is promoting in the left-wing site, Politico. I suppose Politico was a frequent receptor for his frequent leaks against conservatives, the Tea Party, etc. I've always viewed Boehner as a relatively stupid, unserious Washington-insider. But he's a perfect foil, and I will briefly discuss this tonight on radio!...
