Boehner SLAMS Obama: “When is he going to take responsibility for something?” (VIDEO)
The Right Scoop ^ | July 10 2014 | The Right Scoop Staff

Posted on 07/10/2014 9:29:40 AM PDT by PoloSec

This morning in Boehner’s press conference, he was asked if Republicans will take the blame for perpetuating the illegal immigration problem if they don’t approve the president’s request for billions in additional funding. His response was forceful:

REPORTER: Do you agree with Senator Lindsey Graham who said yesterday if Republicans do not go ahead and approve this funding you’re going to get blamed for perpetuating the problem? Do you think you have to approve this funding?

BOEHNER: Listen, this is a problem of the presidents own making. He’s been president for five and a half years. When is he going to take responsibility for something?

By using summer vacation empty Public School classrooms as holding pens for the Illegal Hispanic Children Invaders, Obama has insured that these classrooms will not be de-loused and fumigated in time for Public School to start by Labor Day, 2014.

This planned disruption of the normal Public School year was carefully timed to disrupt the Fall Election Campaign, on a number of different topics, not the least of which is to provide a major distraction to numerous Obama scandals, mismanagement, and the total six year failure of the Democrat Party’s Obama as a leader, both Foreign and Domestic.

Did Obama time this Illegal Alien Invasion with the cooperation of the Mexican Drug Cartels, or was this just careful planning by Obama, and staff?

If so, how many US Taxpayer Dollars were paid to these Mexican Drug Cartels?

Should crybaby Speaker Boehner begin Articles of Impeachment on Obama before or after OUR children start Public School after Labor Day?

Well, why don’t you do it? Run for office and get elected, for example.

Or at least say what you’d like Boehner to do?

I’d like somebody more aggressive too, but you have to fight with the army you have. More conservative groups haven’t been able to get enough people elected (mostly because of vicious infighting about who’s more conservative), and that’s just how it is. So he doesn’t have a lot of support, even if he wanted to be more conservative.

He made an interesting point, though, which is that Obama is acting like a dictator but never takes responsibility for it. In other words, with the complicity of the press, Obama is being let off the hook.

Remember, however, that Obama really is dumb and that the few brain cells he had were probably choomed out. But he’s very ideological and actually quite vicious, and is being used by people much smarter than he is.

Think of this as well:

Some of these illegal criminal aliens have tuberculosis and are being housed on MILITARY bases. And they’re NOT quarantined.

Tuberculosis is a highly contagious, virulent disease. Imagine that running rampant across our services where this invasion force is being dispersed.

Just saying...

Impeaching Obama may FEEL like a great idea--but it would make 0 an INSTANT martyr, just as it did Clinton.

Right now, Obama is like a receiver running the wrong way toward the goal post, and it's slowly but surely dawning on his fans that he is going to win one for the WRONG team.

So--do you send someone from our team to tackle him because he's got control of the ball?

NO!!!

You let him keep on going until he crosses the goal line--wondering why there is no cheering for having "won"--when he in fact just LOST THE GAME!

The lawsuit is a joke as it has little or no chance of being successful. Boehner already has a remedy, it is called impeachment. If Boehner isn't willing to use that, then he needs to start getting his face in front of a camera on a regular basis and take his case to the people. He is a representative of the people, after all. If he can't do this, then he needs to step aside and let someone more competent do the job.

Obama and his gang know they are facing a bunch of weak sisters in the GOP. They must laugh themselves to sleep every night knowing that this drunken idiot is leading the charge.

Well, ol’ Gutless John might start by not just tearing into the Dear Leader, but by tearing into the pack of lickspittles protecting him. He might bother to point out the lies and ever-changing positions that have been trotted out, and received with adoration and slobbering devotion by the worthless media sycophants crowding the room with him. He might even think to have his own cameras and recording persons in there so that he can put out what was said unedited and un-arranged, so that the Media Lickspittles can’t edit and arrange his words in an unflattering manner.

Further, he might announce separate Committees with subpoena power to investigate the IRS, Fast & Furious, and the current Border Scandal, and further, announce that the House will be imprisoning Lois Lerner and beginning impeachment proceedings on John Koskinen for Obstruction of Congress.

In short, he might start to fight. Up to now, he’s been either doing nothing or actually aiding the Dear Leader. Leadership consists of LEADING, and so far, the Speaker is flaccid and listless. The reason Gutless John is not regarded well is that he is hated by the rats simply for breathing (as they hate any Republican), and reviled by his own base as a worthless surrender monkey. Except, that is, when fighting said base over things like Amnesty...

At least by fighting he might gain some small amount of respect by someone. The rats will not hate him more, as it is not possible, and he might win over his base. But, alas, he isn’t known as Gutless John for nothing...

The Constitution empowers you to bypass the POTUS when he fails his oath of office
and you are a miserable failure and LIAR! You know this and refuse to do a damn thing about it!

But how can you do anything about it when you are also criminally negligent
in your duty. You took the same oath of office!! DAMN YOU F_KN GOP TRAITORS!

READ THE CONSTITUTION PEOPLE! When the leaders fail us it's our duty to take matters
into our own hands to protect our nation! But maybe we're a nation of pussies now and deserve it.

Afterward, Obama and Perry attended a meeting on the border crisis that included Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, Dallas County Commissioner Elba Garcia, Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson of Dallas, Grand Prairie Mayor Ron Jensen, Chris Liebrum of the Baptist General Convention, Arne Nelson of Catholic Charities, Texas Health and Human Services Director Kyle Janek and Texas Public Safety Director Steven McCraw.

Catholic Bishops’ report months ago: we lobby for ‘unaccompanied minors’

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 4, 2014

Kevin Appleby, USCCB lobbyist and author of the 2013 report predicting the invasion from Central America. Did the Bishops mission” help make it happen?
Last night when I wrote about Laura Ingraham’s tweet, here, about the fact that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops Migration and Refugee Services program is 98% funded by you (the taxpayer), I should have linked this post that I wrote back in February.

See the whole thing but note what the Bishops said in their November 2013 Report on their “mission” to Central America:

At the national level, the USCCB department of Migration and Refugee Services lobbies to improve options and services for undocumented minors, and oversees a country-wide network of mostly Church-affiliated agencies that administer foster care programs.

(snip)

Catholic Bishops milk taxpayers while pushing amnesty! Are the big guns in conservative talk-radio starting to get it?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 3, 2014

Tonight fellow blogger Richard Falknor alerted me to this tweet at Laura Ingraham’s twitter feed:

Laura Ingraham @IngrahamAngle · 2h
Context for Catholic Bishops’ Amnesty Support: “Fed grants make up 93% of USCCB’s migration/refugee budget http://shar.es/MFEZp

The link sends followers to a story about how much the US Catholic Bishops receive from the US taxpayer citing their 2011 annual report.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services has published its 2011 annual report.

According to the report, over 92.5% of Migration and Refugee Services’ $72.1 million budget came from federal grants and contracts, while under $25,000 came from private donations.

I agree that he’s not doing a great job, but I think one of the problems is not malevolence on the side of people like Boehner, but the same thing that brought down GWB: They believed that the Dems were playing by the rules.

Bush realized by the end of his term that they weren’t, but it was too late. Once Obama got elected, the establishment GOP was terrified of him because, after all, he was part-black and therefore the press would call them racists if they opposed him.

And they’re still scared because they are afraid of being on the end of a press/Dem hate fest. That’s just how they are. A lot of them have been in office for way too long and come from a different political generation.

We need more brave, bold people to come in and stir things up, but we seem to be incapable of electing any. Not only because of obvious fraud like Cochran (and I still hope McDaniel prosecutes him and overturns the election), but because there is so much GOP infighting that we can never get behind a candidate.

In the meantime, though, I’ll take anything I can get. Criticize Boehner when he’s wrong or weak, but support him when he’s right. Think carrot and stick. I can tell you, as a horse owner, that no equine has ever moved only for the stick. They’ll drop in their tracks first. But give them a bit of praise and a sugar lump (with a veiled threat to swat them otherwise, and they’re yours.

Too many of us on FR do not take into account the environment the Republicans have to operate in. The leftists control 100% of the dem party (there are no “conservative” dems - if there ever were); the leftists control the federal bureaucracy (witness Lerner et. al.); the leftists control government education; the leftists control the entertainment industry; and the leftists control the media. Any Republican has to try to get his message out there faced with opposition from all sides, and the media functions like airpower on the field of battle.

We here on FR often want Boehner and others to fight like the leftists fight, but the Republicans do not have any air cover at all. The leftists have total air superiority. The analogy is succinctly described by Bill Whittle:

https://www.billwhittle.com/commentary/bamboo-spears

Boehner and others largely behave as if they are members of a military force that is on the battle field and the enemy has complete and total air superiority. This is asymmetrical political warfare and we really need to understand that.

Oh, I see, we just aren’t nuanced enough to understand the GOP-e, is that it? If you’ve been paying attention you might realize that the ONE message Boehner & crew have been sending is that conservatives can kiss their butts. But if you like that, feel free to keep defending their utter abandonment of their responsibilities. I’m sure you’ll be a vocal addition to the “RINO Can Win” choir as we get closer to November.

Heh! I raise cattle, and it is far easier to lead them than to push them.

Much of the fault lies within the system itself, and the spoils that leadership passes out to ensure loyalty. It takes a truly principled person to say “No” to rank bribery, and the process of elections and the attention it brings causes most decent people to decide against such an ordeal. This leaves the field open to grifters and parasites, like we have now...

Obama is a druggie from his youth.

Obama made transport deals with the Mexican and Honduras Drug Cartels to flood the US/Mexico Border with human trafficking (children), and thus allow the Mexican Drug Cartels to invade all major cities in the US, with no fear of detection.

Since Speaker Boehner has pledged not to Impeach Obama, Obama is free to do anything he wants to with NO fear of punishment.

Faith-based organizations typically will do anything to help “the Children” and are thus easy targets to enable the Feds to humanely dispose of the Drug Cartels’ human trafficking.

Since the destruction of America is Obama’s stated goal, all Obama needs now is another blank check from Controller of the Purse, Speaker “Blank Check” Boehner.

FORWARD!

Here is another nuanced attempt to describe Republican (specifically Boehner) behavior:

http://pjmedia.com/richardfernandez/2014/07/10/the-innermost-doll-of-failure/

What Wretchard’s essay has in common with that of Whittle’s commentary is that they both try to explain the behavior of Republicans in relation to exposure to attack and the accompanying fear. Not all of those commenting on Wretchard’s essay are in agreement, but just about all of them I have read are thoughtful and respectful. Most of the posts there go well beyond a few worn out clichés like “yawn” or “kabuki theater,” or “wake me up when . . . .”

I went back over my earlier post to see how I might have given the impression that I approve of Boehner and his behavior. I think I was going little further than trying to describe and trying to understand what is happening.

Unfortunately the only “wolf pack” we have right now is the House and Boehner happens to be the not so alpha-male leader (what an understatement). Palin isn’t even part of the pack and realistically has no chance of every being the speaker of the house. However, I approve of what she is doing because it encourages some of the wannabe speakers who are ready to pounce on Boehner as soon as they have a real chance. Maybe Wretchard is right in surmising that Boehner senses blood and is shifting closer to the prey. In any event, Wretchard is describing the behavior, not defending it. That is my position as well. Let’s see whether the prey can be brought down first, and then later displace the pack leader.

I notice that in the Senate even Cruz, clearly a fighter and a favorite at FR, has shied away from outright calling for impeachment of Obama:

http://hotair.com/archives/2014/07/09/ted-cruz-declines-to-follow-palins-lead-in-calling-for-obamas-impeachment/

What explains his behavior? Allahpundit seems to think it is to keep Republicans from more internal fighting right now. Maybe Allahpundit is right, maybe not, but we ought to be looking beyond the superficial and trying to understand what is going on. Maybe Cruz fears a party split, or maybe something else. Maybe we should start to denounce Cruz as a RINO too. That will really help, won’t it?

Further, I would suggest that you have no way of knowing whether or not I have been paying attention. My goal, and the goal of many others, is to restore constitutionally limited government so that our God given rights and liberties can be protected. There can be a spirited debate on how best to achieve that goal, but my attention is focused on that restoration. I trust that you have a similar goal as well.
