Palooka Of The Month: November Winner, John Boehner

I guess it's all in the first line of the article that I've linked to here, that for the first time in quite a while, the Conservative Movement was showing signs of life again. We were becoming more unified than we had been in roughly three decades, and all of it thanks to the realization of the Obama Agenda becoming a reality. This really is the one issue that can change our fortunes in this war, and help us to help put the nation on the right track.

All our House Speaker had to do in order to insure our victory going forward was to keep his yap shut about extraneous issues that more than half of us don't agree with anyhow, and keep highlighting our solutions to the major issue concerning every man, woman, and child in America today. That, as it turns out, was asking a bit too much from John Boehner. He had other ideas, and french kissing the canvas seems to be one of those.

I suppose my surprise with this idiotic maneuver is in itself surprising. I mean, it's not as if counting lighting fixtures on the ceiling while a referee counts to ten is something new for our dive taking turkey, only slightly more famous for the tears he'll spew while preparing to acquiesce. It's more surprising now, since victory in this war seemed so imminently possible just two short weeks ago.

From the Hotair article linked to:

House Speaker John Boehner has hired a high-profile immigration adviser, his office announced Tuesday, a surprising move that pro-reform and anti-reform advocates alike interpreted as a step toward reform.

Becky Tallent, an immigration policy wonk, is a well-known figure among immigration advocates, having helped spearhead Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain’s efforts to pass comprehensive immigration reform under President George W. Bush. This year, she took a prominent role in the debate as director of immigration policy for the Bipartisan Policy Center, where she organized a team of pro-immigration Republicans and Democrats, including former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, and former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell in an effort to craft a workable policy proposal…

“I think it’s a clear signal that the speaker is serious about getting this done,” Marshall Fitz, director of immigration policy at the Center for American Progress, told msnbc.

It would appear as though we are going to get screwed with this immigration thing whether we want it or not. My particular beef with immigration is not with allowing as many members of the Latino community as wish to become American Citizens the ability to do so. After all, their wish is to become productive members of our community, and to assimilate themselves into our culture, while adding to it. My beef is that the immigration policy, just like the last time, will still exclude that group of people in favor of the group who practices jihad, and not necessarily that inner self introspection variety either. We will get the continued influx of those who want nothing to do with our freedoms or culture, but seek to destroy it. That influx of jihad practicing bomb planting thugs will of course be accompanied by the requisite lectures on tolerance, and why we should welcome the terrorists with open, if yet bloodied arms.

With all of that being said, one question still burns. With the nation as a whole, wishing to resist the latest proposals on immigration reform by a whopping 60/32 margin, why on Earth would John Boehner wish to make this push now? There literally, is not one positive thing that can happen for his side politically. He is either trying to take that dive on purpose, or he is attempting to sneak something through the he knows his side of the aisle hates, and has calculated that the time is right to piss off the base and still have high hopes of not being punished for it during the 2014 Midterms. Either way, his is beneath contempt and well worthy of the November Palooka Prize.

Here is another thought; put (Defund the GOP, they don't work for you!!) on your email signature, and Email away.

Defund the GOP, they don't work for you!!

Here is a thought; If the Government is involved, it's screwed up, it's a given. Lets look at this a whole new way. Instead of helping the RINOS, Let both parties screw themselves into the ground and the Conservatives in Congress, with Tea Party backed (National Independent Party, look it up, understand it!) publicly come out with these fixes ASAP and officially at the CPAC Convention. We need to have a official kick-off news release starting on the 4th of July, (Independence Day) for our movement. We also need to support our candidates with news releases starting one week prior to all State & Federal elections. That takes MONEY folks! A third party is not wise, but a good, smart Conservative Movement within the Republican Party could be in place for takeover by Nov. of 2014. That is something I would put good money into. Here is what I think would be a good start to a Conservative healthcare fix:

Dump Obamacare!
Return Medicare & Medicaid Healthcare back to 2010 status.
Return the $640 billion back to Medacare.
Get fraud out of both systems. Est. 25% in Medicare/ 33% in Medicaid.
Guarantee interstate competition.

One word of caution here: when we say "amnesty", the politicos will immediately tell you, "No, Boehner isn't about to offer amnesty." Or, "Amnesty can't be passed in the House, period." What they are not talking about is a 'pathway to US Citizenship'. They see this as completely different, and they assume that the vast majority of American support a pathway to US Citizenship.


Case in point: 

Rep. Cole: Boehner Not Planning to Delay Immigration Vote, starting time: 06:18 -- 09:28


 Of course the only filing date Boehner is concerned with his in Dist 8 of Ohio.

He is the Speaker because your Representative backs him!  YES YOURS!

The members of the House of Representatives are all just as guilty of treason as he is.

AND many of you will vote for the same old Republican you voted for last time???

It is past time for us to RE-ELECT no one in 2014 and not many in 2016!

I have told my Representative that I will not be voting for him no matter what happens, if a Democrat wins the seat, so be it!  REP. JEB HENSARLING

I am willing to take a stand for the Constitution - I WISH MORE OF YOU WOULD!

Comment by Cam Stapel on December 4, 2013 at 6:06pm
He needs to be indicted?
Comment by VernonC on December 4, 2013 at 5:52pm

Forget immigration, Obama has left that behind, today it's the disparity in wealth and redistribution.  That aside, the Democrats Harry Reid insulting the American intellect, Boehner is his counterpart for the Republocrats. New name for the fading GOP.  

Comment by Debrajoe Smith-Beatty on December 4, 2013 at 5:31pm

John Boehner needs to permanently retire.
