  • Why do Mitch McConnell and John Boehner act like they have a Denny Hastert problem?

    Everyone is innocent until proven guilty, blah blah blah. Now, having gotten that obligatory sentence out of the way, if Denny Hastert is guilty of molesting a young boy, that's simply terrible. But why do Mitch McConnell and John Boehner seem to be acting as though they might also be blackmailed? Consider how Boehner and McConnell have given in to Obama on all of the following: 1) 100% of his budget requests. 2) Fully funding Obamacare without any restraints. 3) Fully funding Obama's illegal amnesty without any restraints. 4) Raising the debt ceiling repeatedly without any restraints. 5) Effectively giving...

    REP. GOHMERT: Boehner Will Be Gone as Speaker by January To paraphrase Michael Ledeen, "faster, please!" One of the tea-party leaders in Congress believes the days of Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, as speaker of the House of Representatives are numbered... Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, ... predicts Boehner will no longer be speaker “by next January,” regardless of the outcome of the midterm election in November. The Texan doesn’t think it will take a coup to remove Boehner, believing the tide is already moving in that direction, and saying, “I think people are ready for a change.” And Gohmert would see...

    Senator Mike Lee has been collecting signatures to a letter pledging to defund Obamacare. Senator John Cornyn was an original signer of the letter. This has been confirmed by multiple outlets, including the Blaze, and confirmed by multiple Senate sources.

Senator Lee today publicly revealed the existing signatures on his letter.

    The president and CEO of conservative group American Majority Action (AMA) is demanding Republicans band together to fire House Speaker John Boehner. “Speaker Boehner has been an abysmal failure as speaker, and his latest purge is the nail in the coffin for conservatives,” AMA’s Ned Ryun said in a statement. “Boehner has never won a negation battle with the White House or Senate—and he’s been nothing short of an embarrassing spokesman for the Conservative Movement. It’s time for him to go.” Ryun pointed out, too, that if conservatives want to unseat Boehner, they’d only need 16 members to abstain from...

    It seems that whoever becomes the 5th Justice whether it be O'Connor or Kennedy they sell out to the highest bidder and their vote for cash and prizes or are blackmailed by the left if they don't vote the ACLU way and help their career they would expose them about things they don't want in public. Since Kennedy became the 5th vote he has supported International Law supplanting the Constitution, Co2 is a pollutant, terrorist Habeas Corpus rights, and illegal alien rights, etc. You know the left will give him all kinds of awards from the left in the next...

    NEW YORK - A former FBI official claims he was "Deep Throat," the long-anonymous source who leaked secrets about President Nixon's Watergate coverup to The Washington Post, Vanity Fair reported Tuesday. W. Mark Felt, 91, who was second-in-command at the FBI in the early 1970s, kept the secret even from his family until 2002, when he confided to a friend that he had been Post reporter Bob Woodward's source, the magazine said. "I'm the guy they used to call Deep Throat," he told lawyer John D. O'Connor, the author of the Vanity Fair article, the magazine said in a news...

    Maverick Republican Sen. John McCain said Sunday that his New York colleague, Sen. Hillary Clinton, would do well if she becomes president of the United States. "I am sure that Sen. Clinton would make a good president," McCain told NBC's "Meet the Press," as both he and Clinton were being interviewed from Baghdad. While noting that as a Republican, he'll be supporting the GOP nominee in 2008, McCain reiterated, "I have no doubt that Sen. Clinton would make a good president." Asked whether she thought McCain would make a good president, Sen. Clinton was somewhat less effusive, responding tersely, "Absolutely"...

    Considering the hits we keep taking in our global fight against terrorism, I’m gearing up in ‘05 to go up against the Pentagon’s increasingly out-of-control campaign to keep us all conned. The cover-ups track too often with more names added to the U.S. casualty list. So here's my New Year’s resolution: to keep countering Pentagon lies with the truth until enough concerned citizens demand that Congress set up a congressional investigative arm to formally expose the liars and hold them accountable. For almost six decades, I’ve borne witness to scuzzy machinations that had little or nothing to do with America’s...
