From the Washington Examiner: John Boehner ripped into Ted Cruz at an event at Stanford University Wednesday night, by referring to him as “lucifer in the flesh,” and saying he “never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.” Well, okay, but some might argue that given America’s state of affairs under people like Boehner and President Obama, a miserable son of a

Boehner Reelected, but 25 Republicans Oppose

In a sign that conservatives will have no fear of defying him for the next two years, House Speaker Boehner was reelected today, but only as a group of 24 Republicans defected and voted for an assortment of other people, including themselves.

GOP Leadership Allied with Obama on Spending Bill Dems Oppose

Do you want to know where Republican leaders are today? In bed with the White House, and enjoying every minute of it. The House Republican leadership is desperate to pass a massive $1 trillion spending bill before the clock runs out on government funding at midnight. Obama wants it too.

As you may be aware, the White House has been talking up the possibility that President Obama is going to be impeached – IMPEACHED, I TELL YA – by Republicans.

Obama Tacitly Rejects Boehner’s Lawsuit

The system is rigged! That’s the conclusion of our president about the essential unfairness and repression that exists in the United States, used as justification for continuing to “go it alone” without Congress. The system. What system? Is this some college dorm bullshit session where we toss around the latest observations from our favorite Marxist Poli Sci professor? No, it’s this week’s weekly presidential address,

Boehner Opts for Impeachment Lite

House Speaker John Boehner today said the House would sue President Obama for all the end runs he has done around Congress. Obama has violated the spirit of some laws, the letter of others, and ignored still more of them.

Boehner to Convene Benghazi Special Committee

House Speaker John Boehner announced Friday that he will convene a select committee to investigate Benghazi, ending months of resistance to conservative demands that the laser focus of a special panel be brought to bear on perhaps the worst scandal surrounding the Obama administration.
