Will Boehner Lose His Speakership Over Immigration Reform? ‘Maybe,’ He Says
Cybercast News Service ^ | June 18, 2013 - 11:34 AM | Elizabeth Harrington

Posted on 06/18/2013 10:40:54 AM PDT by Olog-hai

John Boehner (R-Ohio) said he might lose his job as House speaker over immigration reform, but he insisted he will not bring a bill to the House floor that does not have majority support of both Republicans and Democrats.

Following the Republican conference meeting on Tuesday, Boehner was asked: “Rep. Rohrabacher said that if you bring immigration reform to the floor without the support of the GOP conference you will lose your job (as speaker). Do you think that’s accurate?”

“Maybe,” Boehner said after a long pause, to laughter from reporters. …

If I were a Republican in the House, I would turn my back on this bastard every time he addressed the group.

In fact, I’d let him get through the first half of his first sentence, stand up and walk out.

He’ll lose it the next election anyway so what’s the damn difference? If he and the rest of the GOP brain(less)trust insist on giving the Dems a permanent majority, they deserve to lose.

he will not bring a bill to the House floor that does not have majority support of both Republicans and Democrats.

200 dems and 18 RINO's would meet that definition in DC.

Well, lets just hope Denny Hastert is out of phone range.

I’m not sure who we get. Would it better or worse? I honestly don’t know.

I would like to think there is a guy in there that wouldn’t rubber-stamp Democrat policy, but I don’t know for sure.

He will not - until 2014. For now, the ‘Rats will supply whatever votes he needs to make up GOP defectons from his camp. Come 2014, because of the total disillusioning of the GOP base, the GOP will be crushed and Boehner can shed a tear as he hands the gavel back to Nazi Pelosi.

Find it strange when the excuse is being given that while the government knows whats going on in 300 million citizens lives but because the illegals are not citizens and in “the shadows” according to Florida’s Senator Rubio the US doesn’t know who they are or where they’re comming from so we must make them citizens..

FR’s ;This Wednesday June 19th a Anti Amnesty Rally will be held on the Capitol grounds. Participants are urged to visit their respective Congressional Representatives and let them know their feelings Michelle Bachmann announced over the Rusty Humphries show

If you agree with the above and the following please don’t let it lay here in FR-land. Pass it on to to your favorite talk show host and to your US legislators. PUSH THE HASTERT RULE.

ONE NATIONALITY AMNESTY SKEWS QUOTAS. AMNESTY FOR NATIONALS FROM A COUNTRY THAT HAS CLAIMS ON OUR NATIONAL TERRITORY HURTS OTHERS FROM SOUTH AMERICA, AMERICAN CITIZENS AND SKILLED LABOR FROM OTHER NATIONS

In that May 3rd speech Obama gave before the Mexican Anthropological Museum in which he blamed America for the violence in Mexico I believe he went even futhur. There’s a inference but never referenced by name to the Gasden purchase and border settlements US made with Mexico where Obama hinted he seems to side with the Mexican claims. Would those in attendence share that view is a question that should be asked, because I believe they would,.he does.

SOLVING THE ‘LATINO” PROBLEM A MYTH HISPANIC IS NOT A RACE BUT A POLITICAL LINGUISTIC CONTRIVANCE ...don’t fall into the hypenated Americans trap created by the hypenated political party ...The DEMO-COMS

The Mexicans have been getting most favorable treatment above the rest of our neighbors both north and south. They’re permitted to cross our borders and enter illegally and are allowed access to rights of citizenship (with the exception of voting which if the democrat party regains control over the House will happen) other nationals entering this country don’t get.. Worse yet the Obama government has been working hand in glove with Mexican movements such as LaRaza supporting the Mexican claims which are also supporting “Amnesty”.

Also by allowing Mexicans to do this any quota ration for immigration from other south and central American countrys are taken up by Mexicans while that country is laying claim to a large chunk of our sovereign territory is a recipe for later serious problems which are happening now.

ARE MEXICAN ILLEGALS SQUATTERS PERPETUATING THE MEXICAN CLAIMS ?

We are already seeing the result of this in certain areas claimed by the Mexicans. Their national flag (standard) gets displayed over ours. Where there is a controlling number of Mexican nationals (illegals). It’s displayed over certain institutions particularly schools accompanied by riots and disturbances. Blacks are threatend by Mexicans in certain sections of citys in those areas. We’re courting trouble by not placing a value on our sovereignty and our citizenship.

MOST COINS OF THE REALM HAVE TWO FACES WHAT ABOUT HOW ARE AMERICAN CITIZENS LIVING IN MEXICO BEING TREATED ?

Worse yet if a US citizen goes into Mexico never mind illegaly but legally. They’ll get 2nd class treatment. Land ownership in title is prohibited period. And there are a slew of regulations they must comply with. Which doesn’t apply to a citizen of Mexico.

By not insisting on reciprocity particularly on those who have entered this country illegally we’re offering no incentive for assimilation and we’re not easing the burden for our fellow citizens who for what ever reason decided to live in Mexico.

ENOUGH OF THE ONE WORLD SOCIALISM ...BRING BACK SOVEREIGNTY AND SANITY TO OUR COUNTRY .....BRING BACK BELIEF IN GOD ...THIS GOVERNMENT OUT OUR FACE..... OUR RELIGIONS..... AND OUR BEDROOMS..

Boner needs to go. We have laws on the books, and the INS-ICE to deal with immigration. The GOP-DNC and their business interests want an open border and access to a cheap source of illegal revenue. The feds have become the gun runners and drug traffickers for the mexican cartels, and any US official who endorses this “immigration reform” are no better that the lowest pimps, drug dealers, or common thugs and gangsters. When We the People lose faith in our government, it is time to replace our goverment those who will abide by our Constitution.

"I think this immigration issue’s been kicked around in this town now for 15 years,” he said. “That’s why I said the day after the election it was time for Congress to do its work.”

I'm sticking with what I've posted a few times before. The main reason so many Republicans are now supporting illegal alien amnesty is that they are tired of fighting the issue. They are cowards and just want to get rid of the issue so they won't have to fight the Dims and the MSM and the ethnic groups and all the rest any longer.

That's about what Boner is saying above.

Just throw in the towel and things will be so much easier for them the next few years, but they give little thought to the longer range effects of a massive amnesty.

gee he’s really setting the bar high. he wants majorities of republicans AND democrats to support the bill. those democrats are going to be a tough sell.

boner, good rule of thumb, if democrats are salivating to vote on a particular bill, it may not be a good one to bring up for a vote, much less desire most republicans to want to vote for.

just’proves boner’s in on it. he’s not stupid, he’s in on it.

“If I were a Republican in the House, I would turn my back on this bastard every time he addressed the group.”

The only problem with that is when extending one’s middle finger from that position, it’s hard to make sure that Bonehead would see it.

Bonehead is slime second only to the Obamadork.

Flush him.

Flush twice, the toilet has a lot of work to do.

In politics, rule #1 is (figuratively) if you're gonna kill the king, make sure it's a fatal head shot.

Rule #2 is (in reality) be careful what you wish for unless you've PREVIOUSLY arranged for adequate, or improved alternatives.

Rule #3 is (always) dance with the one(s) that brung you to the danged dance!!!

FR’s ;This Wednesday June 19th a Anti Amnesty Rally will be held on the Capitol grounds. Participants are urged to visit their respective Congressional Representatives and let them know their feelings Michelle Bachmann announced over the Rusty Humphries show  If you agree with the above and the following please don’t let it lay here in FR-land. Pass it on to to your favorite talk show host and to your US legislators. PUSH THE HASTERT RULE.  I support his idea, but I'm not sure what is meant by The Hastert Rule.

ONE NATIONALITY AMNESTY SKEWS QUOTAS. AMNESTY FOR NATIONALS FROM A COUNTRY THAT HAS CLAIMS ON OUR NATIONAL TERRITORY HURTS OTHERS FROM SOUTH AMERICA, AMERICAN CITIZENS AND SKILLED LABOR FROM OTHER NATIONS  It does skew quotas.  The truth is, there is no valid claim to our territory.  We won't it in battle.  We paid for it in cash.  Mexico officially owned the land for ONLY 25 years, IF (AND THIS IS A MASSIVE IF) you accept that Spain had the right to take land from the Native Americans in the first place.  We at least fought a battle for it, and we paid compensation for it.  Spain didn't.  Mexico didn't.  I wouldn't say this hurts our other neighbors any more than it does any other nation around the world.  Mexican nationals get unfair access.  It is a preference that places the citizens of every other nation in a second tier, something tantamount to racism, or at least placing their access in abeyance to the preference of Mexican nationals. 

In that May 3rd speech Obama gave before the Mexican Anthropological Museum in which he blamed America for the violence in Mexico I believe he went even futhur. There’s a inference but never referenced by name to the Gasden purchase and border settlements US made with Mexico where Obama hinted he seems to side with the Mexican claims. Would those in attendence share that view is a question that should be asked, because I believe they would,.he does.  He's a mental midget.  He tries to play the part of a statesman, and comes off looking more like Spanky laying out policy to Alphalpha, Darla and the rest of the gang.  This guy knows more about Kenyan history than he does our own.  Reading his teleprompter is probably the first time he's even thought about these matters.

SOLVING THE ‘LATINO” PROBLEM A MYTH HISPANIC IS NOT A RACE BUT A POLITICAL LINGUISTIC CONTRIVANCE ...don’t fall into the hypenated Americans trap created by the hypenated political party ...The DEMO-COMS.  While I agree with this in concept, you have to be able to reference this group in some manner.  I don't want to have to use a full paragraph every time I address the problems this segment of Hispanics cause.

The Mexicans have been getting most favorable treatment above the rest of our neighbors both north and south. They’re permitted to cross our borders and enter illegally and are allowed access to rights of citizenship (with the exception of voting which if the democrat party regains control over the House will happen) other nationals entering this country don’t get.. Worse yet the Obama government has been working hand in glove with Mexican movements such as LaRaza supporting the Mexican claims which are also supporting “Amnesty”.  Here again, I agree with this in part.  Truth is, Mexican make up abut 65 to 70% of the illegal immigrants.  The majority of the rest come from Central American Nations.  That segment causes every bit as much of a problem proprionally that the Mexican illegals (undocumented Democrats) do.

Also by allowing Mexicans to do this any quota ration for immigration from other south and central American countrys are taken up by Mexicans while that country is laying claim to a large chunk of our sovereign territory is a recipe for later serious problems which are happening now.  I expect Mexico get an increased quota.  I do not expect other nations to see their's reduced.  Their quota may be increased also under this plan.  As for any claim to our land, I won't even dignify that will acknowledgement.  There is no such valid claim, period!  That's the only way to address it.

ARE MEXICAN ILLEGALS SQUATTERS PERPETUATING THE MEXICAN CLAIMS?  Does it matter?  They don't belong here.  They must leave.

We are already seeing the result of this in certain areas claimed by the Mexicans. Their national flag (standard) gets displayed over ours. Where there is a controlling number of Mexican nationals (illegals). It’s displayed over certain institutions particularly schools accompanied by riots and disturbances. Blacks are threatend by Mexicans in certain sections of citys in those areas. We’re courting trouble by not placing a value on our sovereignty and our citizenship.  I am not aware of any Mexican flags flying over our schools or government buildings.  I am aware of some flags by another group from overseas trying this, and they were slapped down for it day one.  It didn't happen again.  This doesn't mean it's not happening.  It may.  If it is, we need to contact the local authorities can put a stop to it.  It's against the law.

MOST COINS OF THE REALM HAVE TWO FACES WHAT ABOUT HOW ARE AMERICAN CITIZENS LIVING IN MEXICO BEING TREATED?  Worse yet if a US citizen goes into Mexico never mind illegaly but legally. They’ll get 2nd class treatment. Land ownership in title is prohibited period. And there are a slew of regulations they must comply with. Which doesn’t apply to a citizen of Mexico.   There are some good points made here.  I agree for the most part.

By not insisting on reciprocity particularly on those who have entered this country illegally we’re offering no incentive for assimilation and we’re not easing the burden for our fellow citizens who for what ever reason decided to live in Mexico.  I agree with parts of this, but I am not convinced it would cause Mexican nationals here to become more assimilated.

He seems to be a good man. He is a relative newcomer to politics. He was a veterinarian for many years in Marion County. I think he will remain a true conservative vote like Stearns and not cater to special interest groups. Cliff Stearns was a solid conservative but I think he served enough years in Congress.

Sickoflibs has been reminding us about #2. None of the "conservatives" in the House seem to want Boehner's job, as SOL puts it "Obama's b****." And to be honest, for example, what would I do as Speaker if the only choices are

1) Get the House to vote for more spending

2) "Shut down the government" and face the political consequences. Maybe, an eloquent, skillful speaker could pull this off and get the people on board (the same voters who elected Obama twice in spite of all his crimes), by speaking over the screams of the media. But I can't put together the words "skillful" and "eloquent" with the name Boehner.

And, are there replacements for Boehner who would be even worse? Rhetorical question.

I told my congressman to vote against Boehner as speaker when the session started, but, maybe because of #2, he did not.

However, if I were Speaker, I would do anything and everything to kill amnesty. The consequences of its passage are orders of magnitude beyond any budget negotiation.

Boob is a good descriptor for Boehner. These elected lifers in DC rely on statistical reports and analysts to tell them which way the wind blows. I have a doctorate in Statistics. Statistics is like a scalpel, the outcome is totally dependent on the practitioner who uses it.

Boehner is drinking the Foggy Bottom analyst juice on Latino demographics. He doesn’t understand that he should get out of the way and let real leaders emerge that can sway a large portion of the electorate. The conservative message is a great and attractive one if delivered by a good messenger like Cruz.

I agree. I have always said, you don’t pander to Hispanics. You promote good policy and they will flock to you just like others do.

Bigger problem is Boehner has only had RINO geldings in all the committee leadership posts. Those with the near experience to speaker have already sold out.

And I don’t believe that none of them want the job. None of them want to appear overeager for the job while Boehner is in power.

I use a tool named ‘komposer’. It’s free. It reminds me of the old Netscape 7.1 creation and edit tool. Netscape finally died, and I morphed to Firefox (which doesn’t have an editing tool) and Komposer (which is a stand along Netscape like composing tool).

I try to use differentiation in colors to allow folks to understand what is up easier. I get criticized for it, but I think it’s the most clear understandable way to do this. Once you know what’s going on, it’s easy to know exactly what I am referring to, and I don’t fail as easily to respond to each thought.

I agree that the NSA isn’t content to stop a phone calls, and is also going with internet and business data as well.

She's been one of my heroins as well, but she's quiting, like De Mint in the Senate. And she probably isn't even going to get the huge $1,000,000 salary that ol Jim's gonna be gittin!!!

We can't afford these righteous conservatives to be quittin before we see victory!!!

She’s still got a year and some months right? She just needs to be there long enough to clean out the RINO leadership and committee chairs.

IIRC, the speaker doesn’t have to be a member of the house.

Therefore, I’d Pick Newt and then stand back, watch and count the number of libtard aneurysms.
