Tom DeLay Conviction Overturned By Texas Appellate Court (Tom DeLay for Speaker)
Huffington Post ^ | 09/19/2013 10:53 am EDT

Posted on 06/10/2014 7:01:36 PM PDT by Eccl 10:2

A Texas court ruled Thursday to overturn the conviction of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas), who was found guilty of money laundering in 2010.

According to KHOU 11 and the Associated Press, the Third Court of Appeals in Austin said the case's evidence was "legally insufficient to sustain DeLay's convictions," formally acquitting the former congressman on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Tom Delay would be an outstanding Speaker.

Together with Ted Cruz as President and Mike Lee as Senate Majority Leader, there will be incredible needed reforms made.

If anyone knows if Tom will be running, please post here.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

All excellent choices.

Excellent quote:

The loss to leadership speaks to a broader defeat for the Republican establishment. “Those who thought the tea party had been absorbed just got a big wake up call,” says Republican strategist Alex Castellanos. “It’s alive and well and eating elite establishment Republicans for breakfast.”

A good choice also, but the more I think about it, the more I like the idea of a non-Representative as the Speaker. It brings another solid Conservative to the national picture, and allows the Representatives to do their jobs better.

I would rather have Gowdy kick ass and take names in his district and on his committees, and leave the heavy lifting of the Speaker to someone with real experience and gravitas.

Hell, Sarah Palin for Speaker!!!!!!!!!!! Wouldn’t that be something?

The idea of DeLay is particular appealing to me in that he was the one guy the Libs targeted and set up, illegal though that was. He would be right back in their faces, and without any election or fundraising issues to “investigate”. He would be free to pursue a vigorous Conservative agenda, and he knows how to get things done.

Sorry to rain on your parade but no, he’s not. He will not seek it and if he did he would not get it.

It’s speculative nonsense that the Speaker doesn’t have to be a member of the House, it’s not been ruled on. Frankly the whole notion of a non-member Speaker is absurd, it makes no sense at all. People just think they’re being clever by exploiting a hidden gray area of the constitution.

Despite frequent obsession with the idea every time a Speaker election comes around there is a ZERO percent chance it will ever happen.

Delay, a relic of the past who hardly did a perfect job and left under a cloud, would be an exceedingly poor choice even if the idea wasn’t ridiculous.

You want Boner gone? Someone will have to convince an actual member of the next Congress to actually man up and challenge him (no one did in 2013). No magic hero is gonna fall from the sky.

This isn't over yet. This has been picked up for review.

Texas Court of Criminal Appeals will hear Tom DeLay case -
By: Associated Press 03/19/2014 02:40 PM

The overturned conviction of former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay
will be reviewed by the highest criminal court in Texas.

The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals on Wednesday agreed to hear the case after
prosecutors in Austin appealed a ruling last fall that threw out a
2010 money laundering conviction against DeLay.

No timetable was immediately set. -

RE:”You want Boner gone? Someone will have to convince an actual member of the next Congress to actually man up and challenge him (no one did in 2013). No magic hero is gonna fall from the sky.”

That's what I been saying for almost two years. Its not a pretty job and I bet next year gets even worse.

The irony here was that in 2011 when the talk radio crowd finally soured on Boehner (because he was Speaker ) a rumor was floating around that Cantor would challenge Boehner from the right if he p...ed off the Tea party.

It went that the conservatives in the House trusted Cantor.

But that was ~ three years ago.

Cantor always sounded gay to me and I couldn't understand what the GOP house kept the same leadership after the 2008 loss. It made no sense to me to keep them on after that.

Uh, Tom Delay was NOT a good conservative. Remember when he kept the Medicare Part D vote open until 5 a.m. while he bribed, browbeat or threatened Republicans to vote for what they knew was wrong. Members were promised pork barrel projects. They were threatened with primary challengers. It was despicable. Nice to see his conviction overturned and Ronnie Earle rejected. But let's not herald this guy...

Ridiculous choices. Mark Levin is a strategic genius but by no means does this qualify him for Speaker of the House. He’s better read then listened too.

I would pay good money to see Mark Levin in the Speaker’s chair shouting down at Sheila Jackson Lee or Nancy Pelosi, “Get off the floor, you big dope!” Besides, the most important job is whip, which DeLay excelled at.

====== NEWT GINGRICH'S GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENTS ======


Newt Gingrich understands ... what many of us know to be true ...

America is dangerously close to becoming a Marxist Godless Socialist Second-World nation ...


While in congress, Newt

* Founded the Conservative Opportune Society which met weekly to discuss ideas many of which were adopted by Reagan during his second term supporting the group’s conservative goals on economic growth, education, crime, and social issues.


* Co founded the Congressional Military Reform Caucus and the Congressional Aviation and Space Caucus


* Led charges against the Democrat Speaker of the House Jim Wright


* Became House Minority Whip in 1989


* In 1990, he came up with a paper titled ”Language, a Key Mechanism of Control”, that encouraged Republicans to “speak like Newt” and contained lists of “contrasting words” – words with negative connotations such as “radical”, “sick,” and “traitors” – and “optimistic positive governing words” such as “opportunity”, “courage”, and “principled”, that Gingrich recommended for use in describing Democrats and Republicans, respectively…Now we know why he is so good with words during the debates.


* Gingrich and several other Republicans, in an effort to offer an alternative to Democratic policies and to unite distant wings of the Republican Party came up with a Contract with America which laid out ten policies that Republicans promised to bring to a vote on the House floor during the first hundred days of the new Congress if they won the elections. The contract was signed by Gingrich and other Republican candidates for the House of Representatives. The contract ranged from issues such as welfare reform, term limits, tougher crime laws, and a balanced budget law, to more specialized legislation such as restrictions on American military participation in UN missions. In the November 1994 elections, Republicans gained 54 seats and took control of the House for the first time since 1954.


* Congress fulfilled Gingrich’s Contract promise to bring all ten of the Contract’s issues to a vote within the first 100 days of the session


* Legislation proposed by the 104th US Congress included term limits for Congressional Representatives, tax cuts, welfare reform, and a balanced budget amendment, as well as independent auditing of the finances of the House of Representatives and elimination of non-essential services such as the House barbershop and shoe-shine concessions.


* Newt led the Republican majority to an re-election in 1996, the first time Republicans had done so in 68 years, and the first time simultaneously with a Democratic president winning re-election.


* In 1996, Newt pushed for the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act which was intended to reconstruct the welfare system. The act gave state governments more autonomy over welfare delivery, while also reducing the federal government’s responsibilities. It instituted the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program, which placed time limits on welfare assistance and replaced the longstanding Aid to Families with Dependent Children program. Other changes to the welfare system included stricter conditions for food stamp eligibility, reductions in immigrant welfare assistance, and recipient work requirements. The said act was signed into law on Aug 22, 1996.


* Pushed Clinton for a Federal Balanced Budget- The plan included a total of $152 billion in Republican sponsored tax cuts over five years. Other major parts of the spending plan called for $115 billion to be saved through a restructuring of Medicare, $24 billion set aside to extend health insurance to children of the working poor, tax credits for college tuition, and a $2 billion welfare-to-work jobs initiative. Plan was to have a balanced budget by 2002 but was achieved in 1999, three years ahead of schedule.


* Through the Contract with America, Gingrich was credited with the largest Capital Gains Tax Cut in US History with the 1997 US Tax Relief Act
