Is this really the reason why markets are rallying today? (or is it front-running the potential 'cone of silence' from a long-weekend in DC) We suspect neither, but Mike Krieger, having written extensively on the two-party political sham, notes the issue is that both the Democratic Party and the Republican Party are at their core the same on the big issues most affect these United States at this time. This past election should have been a wakeup call to the Republican establishment, but based on John Boehners recent actions, they have learned absolutely nothing. The Republican Party is imploding from within since its leaders dont actually stand for anything. Here is how Mr. Boehner treats those within his party that do stand for something.
Via Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,
I have written about the two-party political sham for many years now. At its root, the issue is that both the Democratic Party and the Republican Party are at their core the same on the big issues most affect these United States at this time. These issues are:
The Federal Reserve scam and Wall Street theft. Civil liberties and the destruction of the Constitution. Our aggressive foreign policy and imperial wars abroad that help only the oligarchs and impoverish the masses.
Then they divide and conquer the masses using relatively irrelevant social issues like gay marriage, which are highly charged emotionally but will not affect your ability to put food on the table.
This past election should have been a wakeup call to the Republican establishment, but based on John Boehners recent actions, they have learned absolutely nothing. The Republican Party is imploding from within since its leaders dont actually stand for anything. Here is how Mr. Boehner treats those within his party that do stand for something.
From the Huffington Post:
On Monday, the Republican Steering Committee, which is chaired by House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), voted to remove Reps. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) and Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas) from the House Budget Commtitee. Reps. David Schweikert (R-Ariz.) and Walter Jones (R-N.C.) lost their positions on the Financial Services Committee.
The four members are known for occasionally bucking leadership and voting against Boehners wishes. Amash, Huelskamp and Schweikert are popular with the conservative movement, while Jones has made a name for himself by speaking out against U.S. involvement in Afghanistan.
Reuters notes that removing Amash and Huelskamp from the Budget Committee could make it easier for the panel to advance a deal with Democrats to cut fiscal deficits which is exactly what many conservative groups are afraid of.
Huelskamp unloaded on GOP leadership Tuesday at a Heritage Foundation event in Washington, saying, We were not notified about what might occur but it confirms in my mind the deepest suspicions that most Americans have about Washington D.C: its petty, its vindictive, and if you have conservative principles you will be punished.
Its a slap in the face to all young people who are thinking about being Republicans, want to be a part of this party, and are being told, Well, if you disagree with leadership just a couple times were going to send you home you dont get to participate, he said.
Jones said he hasnt yet spoken to Boehner. In fact, he only found out he lost his spot on the committee when his staff read about it on the Internet.
Talk about classless. These guys apparently werent even notified of their demotions ahead of time and had to read about it in the press. The message to the citizenry is clear. We must move away from the two-party system and fast. That way we can elect candidates that actually vote the will of the people that elected them, rather than pander to some slimy political godfather in Washington.
We can only hope.
It’s all kabuki theater. Relax and enjoy the show.
“Its all kabuki theater. Relax and enjoy the show.”
More like a bad melodrama.
Yes, this is just like what Hitler did in early July, 1934. The only difference is that Hitler murdered his opponents, but he never messed with their committee assignments.

Why the GOP wont challenge vote fraud.
The Republican Party made an agreement 30 years ago with the Democrat Party NOT to ensure voting integrity and NOT to pursue suspected vote fraud.”
Time for a CONSERVATIVE PARTY that makes NO deal with the enemy.
That way, Cry Baby Boehner can drink all day and play with Barry in the woods when he looks for that “slice”.
“That way, Cry Baby Boehner can drink all day and play with Barry in the woods when he looks for that slice.”
Then come back to bathhouse barry’s little White House love nest and “slice it up” it with barry and reggie.
There is no such thing as a fake conservative - either you are or you are not.
Boehner apparently is not.
HOORAY Tyler and the great posters at ZH!
RESIGN Boehner, you POS.
One thing for certain that the republicans in congress are not thinking about, is that...
The more and more they become like the democrats, the less and less that people will need a difference. And then, there won’t be a need to have 2 different parties, since they will be the same, with different names. Why even bother to go vote for republicans since it won’t matter anymore.
Vichy Republicans are my mortal enemy.
no problemo, Jonny.
I purged myself of the Republican Party today—I changed my voter registration to unaffiliated.
No more Lucy holding the football for me.
That is exactly what I thought when I read the first article about Boehner zapping the conservatives off committees because they didn't vote like he wanted. I really did think, “Night of the Long Knives”.
If a conservative party comes from the ashes of the present liberal Republican Party, I will help this new party.
I to will give you the finger and spit in your general direction, no money for you pig or your a##kissing GOP fiends! We first need to overthrow the republican party
“The Republican Party made an agreement 30 years ago with the Democrat Party NOT to ensure voting integrity and NOT to pursue suspected vote fraud.”
That was an agreement for one court case 30 years ago. The Republicans broke the law in that case, did things they should not have done at polling places, saying they were doing it to ensure voting integrity and suspected voter fraud. The agreement was they would not do those illegal things again at polling places.
I am considering doing the same thing. No Party here may not get to vote in primaries....gotta check on that....
We really need to get a new party going.
HEre in DE I can no longer vote in the primary. Big deal. Didn’t make a difference here when I could.
In other states, the GOP is so stupid they allow open primaries. That way the Dems can help choose the GOP candidate.
They don’t call it the stupid party for nothing.
They can go be stupid by themselves. They are 21st Century Whigs, for all I care.
Great until this flatulence.
Nice and slowly now ... our rights come from God. Not from government. When we forget God we forget our grounding as conservatives. It is just that simple.
Ungrounded 'conservatives' are about to affect the ability of millions of Americans to put food on the table.
Social conservatism is inseparable from conservatism. FOR THE LAST TIME.
And you may have just “unaffiliated” yourself out of the 2014 primaries!
Its all kabuki theater. Relax and enjoy the show.
More like a bad melodrama.
I feel like it is a nightmare from which I can’t wake up.
No loss. Voting in a primary has never made a difference in the general for me.
“This is a summary of the appeals judges ruling, filed on March 8, 2012:
In 1982, the Republican National Committee (RNC) and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) entered into a consent decree (the Decree or Consent Decree), which is national in scope, limiting the RNCs ability to engage or assist in voter fraud prevention unless the RNC obtains the courts approval in advance. The RNC appeals from a judgment of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey denying, in part, the RNCs Motion to Vacate or Modify the Consent Decree. Although the District Court declined to vacate the Decree, it did make modifications to the Decree. The RNC argues that the District Court abused its discretion by modifying the Decree as it did and by declining to vacate the Decree. For the following reasons, we will affirm the District Courts judgment.
Surprise! The judge who denied the RNCs appeal to vacate the 1982 Consent Decree is an Obama appointee, Judge Joseph Greenaway, Jr., of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.”
