Boehner Calls Out Senate Democrats For Their Refusal To Act

Flickr/Talk Radio News Service

In a recent reaction to the House of Representative’s move to fund the Department of Homeland Security while halting Barack Obama’s executive action on illegal immigration, House Speaker John Boehner was quick to tout the effort. He also noted, however, that the House cannot pass the funding bill on its own.

“We won the fight to fund the DHS and stop the president’s unconstitutional actions,” he said. “Now it’s time for the Senate to do their work.”

Boehner specifically called out Senate Democrats who have repeatedly worked to prevent the legislation’s passage.

“In the gift shop out here,” he said, “they’ve got these little booklets on how a bill becomes a law. Why don’t you go as the Senate Democrats when they’re going to get off their a—and do something other than vote no?”

The Senate’s top Democrat, Harry Reid, responded to Boehner’s accusation through a spokesperson, criticizing the use of profanity in his statement.

“We know Speaker Boehner is frustrated,” Adam Jentleson said, “but cursing is not going to resolve the squabbling among Republicans that led to this impasse.”

Though many Americans responded positively to Boehner’s direct admonition, others described the statement as the rhetorical flourishes of an ineffective speaker.

“A do-nothing obstructionist Republican telling someone else to ‘get off their a$s?’” one reader wrote in response to a Washington Times report. “That’s an absolute riot! Proving once again that rank hypocrisy is no deterrent to those lacking a moral compass.”

Some critics also shared the opinion that Boehner should not celebrate funding the DHS at all.

King Obama Decrees Laws But Is Furious At Congress For Netanyahu Invite

obamairan

We’ve all suffered from frustration recently, with King Obama issuing decree after decree and altering the nation’s laws to suit his fancy. This behaviour is a direct affront to the Constitution of the United States and is harming the rule of law in America. Obama has disregarded the will of Congress, and therefore the will of the people, time after time, with almost no consequences.

So it’s humorous to watch the reaction of the White House to the news that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has accepted an invitation from the Speaker of the House of Representatives, John Boehner, to speak to Congress on the Iranian nuclear issue. The administration is furious.  The New York Times reports today: “The Obama administration, after days of mounting tension, signaled on Wednesday how angry it is with Israel that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accepted Republican leaders’ invitation to address Congress on Iran without consulting the White House.”

Who else but a King would be furious at a co-equal branch of government exercising their right and freedom to hear from a world leader on a subject that vehemently divides Congress and the country? I have written here before that Obama is allowing Iran to go nuclear on purpose.

The negotiations are a joke. Kerry is a joke.

Congress knows that. The American people, according to the polls, know that. Only a narcissistic king would throw a temper tantrum like the White House is doing.

What about Obama changing immigration law? The Affordable Care Act?  Environmental laws?

All without Congressional approval?

Of course Obama has acted on his own.  I guess his reaction to the Congressional invitation shows that, in his eyes, it’s not about the country; it’s more about him.

It’s more about his legacy. He wants an agreement with Iran sooo bad, it’s killing him.  And these people, worried about the national security of the United States and her allies, are getting in his way.

The New York Times goes on to say: “The outrage the episode has incited within President Obama’s inner circle became clear in unusually sharp criticism by a senior administration official who said that the Israeli ambassador, Ron Dermer, who helped orchestrate the invitation, had repeatedly placed Mr. Netanyahu’s political fortunes above the relationship between Israel and the United States.”  

Funny, I guess karma is a b…..

Barack Bombs Boehner And Bibi

5535357549_211377ed35_b

Reportedly, Mr. Obama has his panties in a twist about the upcoming Bibi Netanyahu visit. House Speaker Boehner invited Bibi to speak to Congress. Bibi accepted. Barry’s feeling left out, whining about protocol. The protocol complaint is a smokescreen. Boehner is not obligated to get Barry’s permission. But, you see, Barry thinks he is king and demands homage. For these sins, the WH says Bibi “will pay a price.”

Barry is actually terrified Bibi will persuade the Congress that Obama’s approach to Iran is fantasy and that to prevent Tehran from getting The Bomb, tougher deterrents are required.  Barry wants endless talks (he calls them negotiations) and extended deadlines culminating in a friendly gathering around the campfire to sing folk songs and gobble s’mores.

Bibi, Boehner, and a whole truckload of Democrats and Republicans think Barry is a useless appeaser, a marshmellow negotiator, a delusional head of state. So to save Israel, Europe, and the U.S., like grown men serious about their duty, they are taking matters into their own hands. They realize it is time to put the feral adolescent in his place.

Barry is very angry with Boehner and Bibi for humiliating him on the world stage. One does not humiliate The Barry! He has promised “there will be a price to pay.” First installment: the Veruca in Chief refuses to meet with Bibi when he comes to speak to Congress in early March. Obama says he won’t meet with Netanyahu because he does not wish to interfere with his upcoming re-election bid. This is rich given the report Obama sent a team of campaign operatives to Israel recently to work for Bibi’s defeat.  Isn’t it a felony to use U.S. public funds to attempt subversion in a foreign country?

Obama went even further. He floated a story that the head of Israeli intelligence services (Mossad) stands opposed to Netanyahu and more sanctions against Iran, a falsehood condemned by Israeli officials here.

Imagine that: a president who has snubbed the Israeli head of state many times, even calling him ‘chicken s***,’ keeping him waiting for meetings that were scheduled; this is the man Barry continues to abuse, our closest ally in the region. Think of it again. A U.S. President slandering an Israeli head of state, sending a team of operatives to his home country to defeat him as well as floating false stories in an attempt to embarrass him and discredit him.

The only logical conclusions: Barry believes Israel is the root cause of conflict in the Middle East, plus he hates Netanyahu’s guts.  Well, isn’t that special. No wonder Barry hates Bibi. Bibi is a real man. None in this administration dare say ‘Islamic terrorism’–or more accurately, ‘Muslim fascism.’  But they are glad to insult, abuse, and embarrass our best friend, a real leader, a man of integrity.

In another curious development . . . Democrat Senator Bob Menendez was recently the leader of the opposition, confronting Obama on the Iranian sanctions issue. In recent hearings, Mendendez basically said Obama was speaking the language of Tehran when it comes to sanctions. Imagine that: the Senator said the President is essentially a propaganda organ for the Iranians!

Menendez sponsored legislation to insist on the resumption of sanctions. Just days ago, he did a complete turnabout.  It would appear some of Obama’s errand boys may have left a cat skull on Menendez’s door step; or they may have reminded him about allegations the Senator was involved with underage girls in the Dominican Republic, threatening a reopening of the file. Ah, the Chicago way . . . or is it the Kenyan Way?

Let’s hope Congress takes Netanyahu seriously, voting for sanctions with real teeth against Iran; and when Barry vetoes the bill, let’s hope they override it and humiliate him further. He has earned all the humiliation he receives from here on out.  Now that Menendez has wimped out, an override is unlikely.

The fear is that Iran already has The Bomb and only needs to perfect delivery systems, and that Obama knows this and is setting up this drama so that he can blame Congress and Israel when the negotiations fail. Obama has proven he is capable of anything, openly funding and arming the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda, treasonous acts on their face.

Is he planning to allow Iran nuclear weapons, given his affection for Islam and his hatred for America and Israel?

America’s Media Just Writes What Obama Tells Them To

Photo credit: Facebook/Barack Obama

The self-important Boston Globe ran an editorial that is a microcosm of how the Left manages to be so consistently wrong on so many substantive issues. The piece had to do with the supposed wrongheadedness of Republican House Speaker John Boehner. It seems that according to the Globe, Boehner has committed some kind of treasonous act by inviting Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s Prime Minister, to address a joint session of Congress without asking permission from their boss, President Barack Obama.

The writer moans that such an undercutting of Obama’s authority will damage the delicate negotiations Obama is in with the Iranians, negotiations aimed at curtailing Tehran’s nuclear weapons development program.

According to the Globe’s faulty logic, Boehner’s invitation will make the sworn enemies of our only ally in the Middle East less likely to discontinue their nuclear weapons development plans.

If this stance was taken by a legitimately neutral third party, as the media ought to be, this initially counterintuitive position might be worth listening to. Honest public discourse on such vital matters as nuclear weapons in the hands of fanatical lunatics would be helpful if it actually existed, which of course it does not.

The Obama Cheerleaders in Boston and elsewhere see themselves as above “common sense” because it is, well, “common”; and they see themselves as smarter than everyone else. The media believe that Republican conservatives are evil, but dedicated Islamists are not. They believe Israel should roll over and die so that THEY can beat their breasts and piously proclaim how open-minded they are.

They don’t accept the fact that given the chance, the same people who run Iran would eagerly chop off their head and make them physically open minded.

These self-hating “Americans” don’t want Obama to be exposed as the fraud he is. They don’t want to remind the few people who still read daily newspapers that it was they who pushed Obama on us to make themselves feel good. They constantly lie by omission and commission to prop up their boss.

The media will never acknowledge there is no progress to be made in dissuading Islamist lunatics from building weapons they intend to use to destroy Israel’s Jews–and eventually America’s Jews as well.

They won’t allow the truth to be spoken. That truth is that Obama is merely helping the Iranians appear to be “negotiating” in what even those with only a slight understanding of Islam recognize is a kind of “Hudna,” or fake “truce” designed to allow them to regroup for their next attack.

Instead of calling Benjamin Netanyahu shameless because he is doing everything he can to protect his people, an honest media would be demanding that Barack Obama be so “shameless.” But alas this swipe at Israel and Republicans reminds us that America’s media are merely Obama’s steno pool ready to write or say whatever the boss tells them.

Mark Levin Says John Boehner Is ‘Playacting’ On Immigration

Twitter/Fox News

On Wednesday, syndicated radio talk-show host Mark Levin slammed House Speaker John Boehner for engaging in “playacting” with regards to immigration and national security.

“This is actually not about the issue of immigration. This is about the president acting lawlessly,” Boehner said at a press conference Tuesday on Capitol Hill. “Listen, our goal here is to fund the Department of Homeland Security.” This clearly did not sit well with Levin the following day:

“Don’t buy all this phony talk of, ‘Oh, we’re gonna take on Obama, because what he’s doing is unconstitutional, this unconstitutional amnesty.’ This is round one. This is playacting.”

Levin stressed again, “This is playacting.”

“Because Boehner out of the other side of his mouth said that they’re going to fund the Department of Homeland Security. Would you fund it in a clean bill? ‘Oh sure!’ What that means is fund it lock stock and barrel.

“Problem is the various elements of our immigration enforcement and immigration generally is in that department. Used to be in the Justice Department but now it’s there. Boehner has no intention of ‘shutting down the government’ over this. None.”

“He has no intention of playing out the power of the purse over Article I – Congress’s power to the end. None,” Levin continued. “And Obama knows it.”

The syndicated talk show host also asserted “passing a bill to secure the border” does not necessarily secure the border, referencing a National Review article published by Peter Kirsanow on Wednesday.

Kirsanow writes, “The Secure Fence Act of 2006 mandated the construction of 670 miles of double-layered fencing along the 1,930-mile border with Mexico.”

The Department of Homeland Security claims that 352 miles of pedestrian fencing has been erected. But Representative Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., notes that only 40 miles of that is double-layered, as required.

Levin said, “Gee, I would think this is a perfect stimulus program for our infrastructure. Wouldn’t you?”
