Debt Ceiling Casts Boehner As The Ultimate Judas


It looks like John Boehner is feeling pretty good about maneuvering the Republican-controlled House of Representatives into a compromise with Barack Obama and Harry Reid on what they call the “clean” debt-ceiling extension.

At a celebratory news conference, Boehner began singing the upbeat Disney classic: “Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay,” even though Republicans now have zero control over how much debt Obama can ladle upon America. So much for all of Boehner’s tough rhetoric.

You may recall that the classic Disney song is from the movie Song of the South, in which seven-year-old Johnny is excited about a vacation to visit his grandmother’s Georgia plantation. On the plantation, Johnny meets Uncle Remus, who tells him stories “in his old-timey way.”

Interestingly, these stories about the Briar Patch have some striking similarities to Congress.

Take, for instance, the story in which Br’er Fox fabricates a doll out of a lump of tar and dresses it up with clothes. When Br’er Rabbit appears, he speaks to the tar “baby,” but gets no answer. Br’er Rabbit becomes piqued by what he comprehends as the tar baby’s lack of manners. So he punches the doll and in doing so… gets stuck. The more the enraged Br’er Rabbit pokes and bangs the tar “baby,” the worse he becomes stuck.

This tar baby represents a problem that gets worse the more one struggles against it… just like our current debt predicament.

You see, Boehner may be happy now; but by putting off the debt-ceiling controversy until after the election, he’s setting the nation up for more difficult problems tomorrow. This is what we call kicking the can down the road.

Neither side wants to deal with it again until after the new members are seated post election, making the clean debt-ceiling extension nothing more than an accelerated step toward the collapse of the global, dollar-led fiat Ponzi scheme.

An Ugly Forecast

On top of that, the extension could be setting the country up for challenges in the bond markets. You see, markets are based on confidence. Once confidence is broken and mass psychology changes from comfort to fear, it’ll all be over.

The United States currently owes more money than we can ever pay off with the current size of the economy. To successfully pay back the debt, the economy would have to grow much faster… and that just isn’t happening. We’re a nation without food lines only because we keep printing virtual food stamps onto SNAP cards, no matter what the propaganda says.

Last year, when the mislabeled “No Budget, No Pay” Act was passed, the U.S. debt was $16.394 trillion. Now, despite repeated government lies regarding “declining deficits,” the national debt has risen to $17.3 trillion. If the government is controlling spending, why is the debt increasing so quickly?

I predict that the U.S. government will have another year of unfettered access to the Federal Reserve’s printing presses, despite all the talk of reining in out-of-control spending.

The truth is that the jobs picture is terrible, the economy is crashing anew, and energy prices are rising. Looking just 12 months into the future, I don’t see the good times rolling on.

For his part, John Boehner should be gone soon, as either the Democrats will win and retire him, or the tea party will win and retire him. Let’s hope that he enjoys his last months in office, because despite the Speaker’s happy songs, the tar “baby” is stuck squarely on him.

  1. Boehner needs to be forced to step down as Speaker BEFORE summer starts

    • I called his office and told him he might as well join the Dem party. Then, today, I called and told him to go ahead and have the irs "go after" the T party and he'll see the results on election night.

    • Seeks_the_truth says:

      How about waiting until after we take the Senate back? We don't need a major division in our ranks right now. We have to stay focused on November and not what one Congressman did or didn't do.
      As long as Boehner is doing what we need him to do, hang in there until we take the Senate and impeach obama.

  2. Seeks_the_truth says:

    While I agree there should have been SOMETHING we could have got out of the debt ceiling fight, I APPLAUD Boehner for not allowing the Dems to use this as a distraction.

    The time is short before midterm elections. Do we force the media to stay on the monstrosity obamacare, the IRS, unemployment and other failures OR do we allow them to turn focus on the 'newest' government shutdown CREATED by Republicans?

    You know if the Republicans so easily shut down the government, they will easily destroy what's left of the economy. You know Republicans are the cause of these financial issues we face. Just look, they AGAIN shut down the government.

    Attack Boehner all you wish. Too bad you haven't the foresight to see this was the only smart move in this game called life.

      Time will tell and I think he is a RINO plus a white caddy for Obutthole.

      • Seeks_the_truth says:

        This isn't about what else Boehner has, or hasn't done. Whether he's right or wrong. Conservative or a RINO. We agree with him or not.
        It's about was it right to raise the debt ceiling. At this point in time, yes it was.

        That's the problem. People mix up the issues. He's being called a Judas for passing a clean debt ceiling when it was the BEST thing he could do. Best for Republicans I should say.
        We'll fight the other fights later. Right now we need control of the Senate.

        • MuslimLuvChrist says:

          Correct STT, its all about gaining the Senate! The House passed a clean debt limit increase bill because there will be nothing to blame Republicans for when dashit hits dafan in October, when impeachment hearings will begin!

          • Seeks_the_truth says:

            That's the Republican's problem. No cohesiveness. Everyone has an issue and feel it should be the fight fought.
            We need one person to take the lead. Bring to discussion what the majority wants. At least Boehner did that. The Senate is our top priority right now.
            We can't stop the socialistic conversion if we don't have the Senate.

    Boner is an inept Speaker he has never come out on top of Obutthole.All Boner does is knock the Tea Party like that idiot Pete King of NY.Boner is a George Hamilton wannabe Tanned and ready to carry Obuttholes golf clubs.
