    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.

    Weak GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy spoke with Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures this morning from Poland. The Republican House leader called for arming Ukraine. Kevin McCarthy then discussed the GOP plan if the party takes control of Congress next year. _________________ McCarthy said nothing about election integrity. He would not commit to the impeachment of Joe Biden but will “look where the evidence leads us.” He said nothing about the DOJ-FBI apparatus that targets Trump and his supporters and sets up ordinary Americans in their evil schemes. He said nothing about the political prisoners held in jail today after...
  • 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...
  • Now Kevin McCarthy calls January 6 a 'violent insurrection': GOP war deepens after Trump attacked Mitch McConnell for calling it an 'insurrection'

    House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy has conceded that January 6th was a 'violent insurrection,' saying he agreed with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's description of that day. 'No one would disagree with that,' McCarthy told reporters on Capitol Hill on Wednesday. His clarification comes after McCarthy was mocked by Democrats for walking away from an ABC News reporter who was asking him about the Republican National Committee censure of Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney for serving on the committee investigating the insurrection.

  • Cheney allies flock to her defense against Trump challenge

    Allies of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) are starting to make a concerted effort to boost her reelection bid as she wages the fight of her political life against a Trump-backed challenger. Former President George W. Bush will hold a fundraiser for Cheney next month, as reported Wednesday, handing her a boost with the traditional wing of the GOP. But backers say they expect more Republicans aligned with Cheney's brand of conservatism to get off the bench to help her in a primary knife fight against attorney and erstwhile ally Harriet Hageman. "I think it's going to be much more than...
  • What Happened to Republican Leadership? (read all the way through for pure enjoyment)

    We could capture all the political problems our country faces today with a single question – where have all the conservative leaders of the past two decades gone? I’m thinking of a select few: George W. Bush, John Boehner, Paul Ryan, and Jeff Flake. They all have a couple of things in common. When in office, they were viewed as nice guy conservatives with whom the other party could negotiate. Since having left office, they have all been absent from the public scene when the country most needs them. Boehner is happily hawking marijuana and writing books. When he appears...

    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...

    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...

    The Democrats government shutdown is in its third week and it is beginning to look like it will continue, at least past the debt ceiling. Negotiations continue over how to reopen the government, but there is a certain amount of exasperation starting to show. The Republicans in the House of Representatives have offered plan after plan to end the government shutdown, but they have all been rejected by the Democrats. Their latest plan was threatened with a veto from President Obama, before it could even make it to the floor of the House. I can't help but wonder if Rush...

    House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) warned President Barack Obama again against taking executive action on immigration Thursday, telling Obama he would be playing with matches and risk burning himself. “[H]e’s going to burn himself if he continues to go down this path,” the House Speaker said. The Wall Street Journal reports that there was additional subtext to Boehner’s warning, specifically a year of discussions — unreported until now by the WSJ — between the two men about achieving a legislative compromise on immigration reform. According to the report in the summer of 2013 Boehner and Obama began discussing ways to...

    Sarah Palin – RINO Season Opens Soon, Amnesty Juan Boehner Flipped America the Bird Rick Wells Sarah Palin, as is the case with most conservatives and others who value the Constitution and the rule of law in the United States, is not happy that the Speaker of the House and his comrades have lied and sold out the American people. John Boehner has effectively allowed Hussein Obama act as a dictator and to take actions which are illegal and which circumvent Congress through the implementation of his criminal amnesty. She had a few choice words in response to questions after...

    With House conservatives wanting to keep the pressure on Barack Obama given his end run of the political process when it comes to illegal immigration, reports indicate Republican House Speaker John Boehner may be considering doing the un-thinkable -- abandoning House conservatives to do a deal with Democrat Leader Nancy Pelosi to keep the government open long-term. Hardline conservatives who have caused problems for leaders for years were not falling in line. These conservatives estimate their ranks are 30 to 40, enough to derail a vote.That swelling Republican opposition gives Pelosi and her down-in-the-dumps House Democrats some unexpected power: the...
  • Washington just reached the mother of all budget deals of the Obama era

    Business Insider ^ | 10/27/2015 | Brett LoGiurato
    It's not the ever elusive "grand bargain." But Washington may have solved almost all of its budget problems through the 2016 presidential election. Congressional leaders and the White House came to tentative terms on a major budget deal in the wee hours of Tuesday morning — one that could stave off many of the fiscal land mines remaining through next year's election and beyond. Its passage is far from certain, but it will most likely be the final act for House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) before he leaves Congress at the end of the week and hands over the role...

    Hotair ^ | 07/19/2014 | AllahPundit
    A leftover from yesterday via CNS but a fine note on which to end the week. There are three ways the House could punish Obama the next time he decides he wants to rewrite a statutory deadline for ObamaCare or unilaterally declare war in the Middle East or amnestize a few million illegals. They could impeach him, of course, but that’ll go nowhere in the Senate and will provoke a nasty public backlash against the GOP. That option is too hot. They could do what Boehner’s actually doing right now, suing Obama on separation-of-powers grounds, but most legal experts...
  • Boehner: “Inconceivable” that Obama didn’t know about IRS abuse

    Earlier this morning I questioned the new spin out of the White House that Kathryn Ruemmler would have informed Barack Obama’s chief of staff Denis McDonough and a number of other senior staffers in Obama’s inner circle of the IRS abuse and corruption about to blow up in an IG report, and somehow that news never got to the President himself. House Speaker John Boehner also is having trouble swallowing that explanation. In an interview last night with Greta van Susteren, Boehner called it “inconceivable” that so many people knew about the practice and the probe, and yet Obama remained...

    From the Republican presidential candidates to top GOP lawmakers in Washington, party leaders are engaging in a full-court press against the Obama Administration's decision to force employers affiliated with religious groups to offer health care insurance plans to workers that cover birth control free of charge, even if the action contradicts the employer's religious beliefs. In a rare move for someone in his office, House Speaker John Boehner, Republican of Ohio, took to the floor of the chamber on Wednesday to discuss a legislative plan to overturn the decision. Calling the rule "an unambiguous attack" on faith-based groups, Boehner said...

    Speaker John Boehner has rejected Obama’s request to address a joint session of Congress on September 7th to discuss his jobs plan. Boehner has asked that Obama consider the following night instead. According to Politico, Boehner said in a letter to Obama that Sept. 8th would be better “so we can ensure there will be no parliamentary or logistical impediments that might detract from your remarks.” It is important to note that on September 7, the GOP Presidential candidates will have a debate that is sponsored by NBC and Politico that will air on MSNBC. NBC and Politico announced earlier...
