Skip to comments.WP: Business Groups Stand By Boehner, Plot Against Tea Party (groups compare tea party to Taliban)
Posted on 10/17/2013 9:21:50 AM PDT by MadIsh32
Despite presiding over a chamber that nearly drove the country to a debt default, John A. Boehner still has the enduring support of a group that wouldve been most harmed by that event: the business community.
Rather than revisit their strategy of supporting Republicans after this weeks near-disaster, influential organizations such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce are standing behind Boehner.
More importantly, Boehners friends in the business community are getting ready to take sides in a few Republican primary races against tea party candidates in Michigan, Idaho and Alabama who could cause the House speaker more trouble.

“...compare tea party to Taliban...”
They’re telling us just how little they know about the Tea Party AND how little they know (but should) about the Taliaban!!
These people disgust me.
Boycott worked in the First Tea Party,
and would end this now.
Every backer of the RINOs and the MSM
should be identified.
It is one thing to say you compare the Tea Party to the Taliban. It is quite another to come up with valid reasons why you take that stance. Does Dirk Van Dongen have any valid reasons why he has come to this conclusion?
“I dont know of anybody in the business community who takes the side of the Taliban minority,
No one in house is running against Bohner anyway, they didnt in January and they are not now.
They dont want to be Speaker, they want him to be the goat while they get on TV and announce they are voting ‘no’ on stuff that Obama signs anyway.
Rush and Levin wont tell you that but I will.
Its a Kabuki dance.
this latest crap by the GOP makes me definitely want to turn Libertarian or Constitutional Party. Being in NYC doesn’t mean crap anyway—totally Dems.
I thought the bias from the media in 2008 and 2012 were the worst I have ever seen but the media might have out done themselves here .
Their bias is not even hidden anymore.
Chambers of Communists locally here in the Twin Cities metro like to pimp for choo choo trains to herd sheeple to their ‘sustainable housing’ projects.
I wanted to send them an email concerning this, but there isn’t a contact on their web site.
I would say that there is more rage and hatred out there now than during the Civil War. Just my thoughts on it.
It’s why my wife moved from MA and to FL, why stay in a state where your vote is a waste of time, why pay those socialist taxes for them to pass even more of their socialist crap.
Not that I am any fan of the super big banks. Quite the contrary.
But the fact is that obumbler and JP Morgan were thick as thieves, if you will pardon the pun, but obumbler turned on him like a pit bull because Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase made the mistake of criticizing obumbler.
The result has so far cost JP Morgan BILLIONS in attorney fees, settlements, etc., and the end is not in sight.
Companies who exist under the blessing of government permits or government contracts have to be very careful.
Would Bammy et. al. have turned on their Bankster base and actually defaulted on some of the Treasury bucketfuls of paper output?
They will if their voters say they’ll sit home in 12 months. Speakers change. We had three in the late nineties, and this one is not effective.
Congressman are concerned about reelection. I laid out to mine that my eyes are on immigration. I told him I will hold HIM accountable if our leadership allows amnesty in any form. A vote against is not good enough. The leadership serves at their pleasure and their are accountable for that vote.
He's in play.
Key word here...Lobbyist...The Chamber of Commerce has been real friendly with Obama too.
I keep hearing the word “dysfunctional” Government. Part of the “dysfunction” can be attributed to the Lobbyists who play all sides against the middle.
Lenin was right, but he understated it. Idiot capitalists will buy the rope that hangs them, not sell it.
The Washington Times should do a story on how much these business are making from Government contracts.
I think somebody just kicked open a Tea Party Ant Hill...I sure hope so.
Maybe a career change calls to you. There's a great need out there.
The banksters would love a default. Just a couple of points on the ol' Fed Funds rate and the government would be on it's knees at every bond auction.
It all comes down to who prints the money.
“...there is more rage and hatred out there now than during the Civil War...”
You’d be right.
Do you REALLY want someone like me, actually ACTING like a Taliban terrorist?
Keep it up. I have less to lose on a daily basis.
Excellent attitude. I wish more people shared it.
Correct, Bohner probably will jump ship end of next year.
If so then one of the mice will have to step up
They know. They don’t care.
If they can use it to create the false image association, it’ll play well in the MSM and with the low information voter types.
RE :I told him I will hold HIM accountable if our leadership allows amnesty in any form. A vote against is not good enough. The leadership serves at their pleasure and their are accountable for that vote.”
I agree. At this stage give Obama NOTHING
The Chamber Commerce types care only about one thing - money. Heartless people, the lot of them. I support lower taxes (which they love) but they will never stand up for any social issues.
Seems like this is one of the few issues where people do get active. It was stopped under Bush, and has at least been slowed in the House. The leadership seems determined to pass something, though. Unfortunately, we just saw them break ranks with the majority of Reps this week, and we’ll probably see it again. This issue is ballgame.
I am not even a hardliner on this issue, but the current Senate bill is disastrous.
Time for the Libertarian Tea Party and leave the GOP behind
The only ‘reason’ that matters - because it works. The msm will pick up on it and run with it, until it becomes accepted dogma that the TP is synonymous with terrorism.
Finally, when DHS decides it wants to go after ‘domestic terrorists’, the TP will be at the top of the list. And the RINO’s and party bosses will turn a blind eye and a deaf ear. The public at large will appreciate how dhs foiled another ‘terrorist plot’.
Smith has been endorsed by Citizens United and the Club for Growth as well as many ID GOP luminaries and is considered the Tea Party candidate.
I live in ID-1 and can't vote for him, but I'll do what I can to support him. We need representatives from Idaho that mirror Cruz and Lee and have their backbone. That ain't Simpson.
Unless we find a way to cut off the money flowing to K-Street...this insanity will continue.
Many people love to use government to protect their businesses from competitors or to get taxpayer funded stuff. Economic development is all the rage, and that amounts to taking money from people to bribe companies to hire people or to re-locate their business. It’s all a con, and every town, city, and state has a staff of planners and econ development people who are paid to take nice trips and schmooz with people. Central planning always fails.
Nobody talks about what people would have done with the money if they had been allowed to keep it.
And remember, Obamacare was endorsed by the Chamber of Commerce.
Whaddaya know. Look at this list of events on the NAWD’s home page:
NAW Billion Dollar Company HR Roundtable November 5th-6th, 2013
NAW Billion Dollar Company Operations Roundtable November 5th-6th, 2013
NAW Billion Dollar Company Chief Legal Officer Roundtable November 5th-6th, 2013
NAW Large Company CFO Roundtable November 13th-14th, 2013
It’s a trade organization(read: corporate cronyism lobbying group) for big business. Of course they’re for the GOPe brand of big government, amnesty, etc..
Here is what we have learned after we changed to Independent after 30 years Republicans. We did this last year after the fiasco in the elections here in New Mexico. First we got a phone call from the local Republican Party asking why we had changed our registration. The worker was then trapped and had to listen to our complaints. Secondly we got to call them and bitch about the donation request after the first one came in. That stopped all of them.
It may not mean crap here in NM but it sure made our life a whole lot calmer. And the Libs do not pick a fight with us anymore.
It’s the Washington Compost - the mouth piece of the DNCC.
Lie #1: a group that wouldve been most harmed by that event: the business community.
There wasn’t ever a real threat of default and there can’t be. It’s a twofer, because businesses in general would do better with less government by both cost and scope/size.
If you could permanently cut $250 billion from the budget you could eliminate the corporate income tax and free churches and any other corporate group from government interference.
Can you find more lies?
I think we need to start with capitol hill staffers.
People have this fantasy that they’re a bunch of fresh faced kids just out of college but the reality couldn’t be further from the truth. For instance, John McCain’s former legislative director went directly from McCain’s office to become VP of Lockheed Martin for a few years and is now GOP staff director for the Senate Armed services committee.
Let him know how you feel about him comparing Americans to Muslim extremists...
To reach Dirk Van Dongen: firstname.lastname@example.org
You need to perm cut about 1 trillion from the budget
That starts with social security, medicare, medicaid and any other generational theft items
More on this scumbag...
