Reid, Boehner, Cantor and the Lame Duck ^ | 4/23/14 | Ken Adams

Polls indicate that Republicans may win a majority in the U. S. Senate on November 4. While that would be a very positive event, the de-throning of Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid may trigger an attempt to pass amnesty for illegal aliens.

Here’s the story. The number one goal of the Democrats in Congress is to grant amnesty to those who have entered the country illegally. It is fair to say that the Democrats lust after amnesty. And they lust after amnesty because if it is passed, it will create twenty million new Democratic voters and insure liberal Democratic rule of America, perhaps forever.

Now, let me share some recent history. On Nov. 2, 2010, an election tidal wave swept 63 new Republicans into the House of Representatives. Nearly all of them were conservatives. It was the year of the Tea Party. The Democrats lost the House, and the Republicans became the new owners.

On Nov. 3, 2010, the day after the election, the liberals in Washington began an operation to salvage their most dearly loved legislation before the Republicans took control of the House. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Michael Mullins conspired with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in December, while the Democrats were still in the majority.

Definition: The session of Congress which extends from a November election until the time when Congress adjourns at the end of the year is called a Lame Duck Session. It could also be called a deadly duck session as departing politicians have been known to do some nasty things on their way out the door.

If this were a Republican president, the Leftist media would be making snide remarks about their lame duck status every day and how nothing will be accomplished because of ineffective leadership during the last two years of this administration.

Because the state-run media is determined to get amnesty for illegal Democrat voters passed before Obama leaves office, we don’t hear a word about his lame duck status.

A number of Republicans are eager and willing to help them do this. That's not good for conservatism, it's not good for the country, and it's not good for the Republican Party. The only logical conclusion is that it's good for those Republicans personally.

A Senate win with McConnell at the helm is an empty victory in my book. Likewise for the House with Boehner and Cantor in ANY leadership capacity.

All I can say is that I wish it was duck season.

Last I read, Doormat Republican Boehner was “Hellbent” on ramming through the House Obama’s Amnestry Bill for Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico.

Doormat Boehner knows that Obama can’t get this done without Boehner’s help, as the already passed Democrat Senate Amnesty Bill for Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico will die this Session of Congress unless Boehner comes to the rescue of Democrat Feudal Lord Reid, and Democrat Tyrant Obama.

Boehner also knows that unless Obama’s Opinion Poll ratings go up, Republicans will win in a Landslide, but Boehner will have the unwanted problem of a new class of Patriotic Freshmen House members that are from the dreaded TEA Party.

Hence, Boehner must do all he can to not allow the Democrats to lose by the predicted Landslide margin of defeat in the Mid Term Election of 2014.

Obama knows that the only on-paper accomplishment for him is his convincingly failed Obamacare Socialized Health Insurance Tax, commonly known as OSHIT.

Obama needs the House to pass an Amnesty Bill to demonstrate that he is worthy of a higher poll rating.

Thus, passage of a House Amnesty Bill for the Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico, and their offspring, will help both Boehner and Obama continue on their mutually beneficial, joint venture of “Fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

In the four years that Doormat Boehner has protected Obama from all of the many violations of the US Constitution, the many, Many, MANY Derelictions of Duty and scandals, there has never been as loyal a permissive Speaker to a corrupt Administration than permissive, Doormat Boehner has been to the entire corrupt, tyrannical Obama Administration.

History will not be kind to Doormat Republican Boehner or his supporters in the House Republican Leadership including Cantor, McCarthy, and Ryan.

Always one to boast with a TV speech on how “sad” he is at the illegality of the rogue Obama Administration and Democrat Reid Senate, Doormat Boehner has always shied away from during the honorable thing by choosing to never enforce the US House Laws of the United States of America.

The limit to Doormat Boehner’s tolerance for obvious Federal corruption has yet to be reached.

Speaker (?) Johnny Boehner has become the Poster Boy for everything that is rotten in the once formerly GREAT Republican Party.

Using the old “Birds of a Feather” indicator, it is small wonder then that the Republican National Committee and their donors so enthusiastically approve of the “Doormat to Democrats” tactics of Mr. Doormat himself, House Speaker Johnny “The Sobber” Boehner!

Doormat Boehner knows that Obama will reward him for the loyal protection that Boehner has constantly provided for Obama for over four very long years.

Money is NOT something needed by Multimillionaire Boehner, but perhaps Boehner would accept an Obama appointment to be the United States Ambassador to Libya?

I truly fear that no matter who wins what in '14, the odds are that the structural reforms needed to save this Republic may not ever be addressed.

IMNVHO, they are:
Repeal of the 17th Amendment.
The sooner the selection of Senators is returned to state legislatures, the better. Popular election merely means that Senators like Corzine, Reid, McConnell et all can buy the election much more easily. And after they buy election, they get paid with 500% ROI? Not good. And, they answer to no one!

5% Budget Reduction per fiscal year

EPA, IRS, HS, Education Department abolishment.

Clarification of Citizenship and Immigration Controls

Perhaps it will take a Constitutional Convention called by Republican Governors./

The Constitutional Federal System is wrecked. Who will address it? How to fix it short of Civil War II?

Drunken Party Boy Boehner has a death grip on the house. The votes to break it will be hard to get, especially since the RNC is on this corrupt clown-fool's side. Think President of the fraternity who is chosen by the President of the University. Not good.

Cantor, Ryan? Closet RINOs. We need some firebrands ... not go-along-to-get-alongs. One way is to elect non-lawyers, that is patriots who have professions they can return to which do not depend upon access to the public trough.
