The Failed Speaker

“Now the question for the entire eight-member Virginia Republican delegation – including newcomers Barbara Comstock and Dave Brat: will they vote on Tuesday to support national renewal with a new House Team — or more national failure by voting for John Boehner as Speaker?

Most often in Washington, “compromise” is a euphemism used by weak leaders to describe their own failure.

Most of us have worked for feckless bosses at some time or another.

These are people who might be fine men or women, but simply don’t have what it takes to be leaders.

They fail, they frustrate, and they invariably create more problems than they ever solve.

They may be bright enough; they may be capable in some things; they may be charming; or they may be great at public relations.

But, they aren’t leaders.

The 61st, and current Speaker of the House, John Boehner is such a fellow.

He is a failed Speaker by any standard, and he has caused much damage to his country and his party.

  • He has extended and enabled a President who openly disdains the citizens he swore to defend and protect.
  • The Speaker has folded like a cheap suit at every turn of major policy, while whining that he could do nothing.
  • When called to lead, he has shrunk from his Constitutional oath and duty. The last two years should have been a nightmare of confrontation over principle for Barack Obama – instead a reckless and dangerous man has had virtually unchallenged power to “remake” a nation fitting his collectivist radicalism.
  • Speaker Boehner is simply incompetent. Perhaps worse.

Now the question for the entire eight-member Virginia Republican delegation – including newcomers Barbara Comstock and Dave Brat: will they vote on Tuesday to support national renewal with a new House Team — or more national failure by voting for John Boehner as Speaker?

Virginians and all Americans deserve new Congressional leadership.

Leaders who put the interests of the working class citizens above the interests of the Washington potentates.

Republicans need to elect new leaders, preferably with real world experience, who understand that compromise is not a strategy, and is virtually never an effective negotiation tool unless it involves minor differences.

Most often in Washington, “compromise” is a euphemism used by weak leaders to describe their own failure.

Proactive, productive negotiations, particularly with a hostile counterpart like Obama, must be collaborative in nature, where two parties competitively advance their positions, and finally co-operatively seek to find a way forward.

Anything less than that is capitulation.

For many of us, the choice seems clear for the incoming Congress: stand up with the working men and women of America and do the right thing, for the right reason.

Here is our Virginia GOP House delegation — call them to help them be heroes for the Republic!

Speaker Election Week One Away — GOP Chiefs May Back Amnesty!

UPDATE DECEMBER 31! Immigration time bomb about to explode on GOP” declares WND’s Garth Kant – “Even though many conservatives believe, based on the weight of their arguments, they can persuade immigrants to move to the right, [CIS’ Steve] Camorata said experience suggests otherwise. ‘People who leave New York state because of its oppressive regulations and so forth, when they get to North Carolina, they vote for those same policies.’ Camarota does believe voters in the rest of the electorate could be persuaded that legal immigration is a severe problem.’If Republicans were to explain why it’s problematic for taxpayers, why it’s making the country so much more densely populated and how that impacts their standard of living, what it means for American workers, there’s no question the public would respond.’ He insisted he Republicans could use the explosion of immigration issue against the Democrats, ‘But rather than persuading people it will lead to a more liberal agenda, they choose instead to please the electorate.'”

Speaker Election Week One Away — GOP Chiefs May Back Amnesty!

America’s national crisis over amnesty and open borders may be coming to an unhappy (and irreversible) conclusion faster than you think.

It is likely that, as reported by Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle, the “GOP Leadership May Be Developing Plan To Solidify Obama’s Executive Amnesty.”

“The plan by GOP leaders to sell out and back up Obama’s executive amnesty is already coming together.”

A sovereign remedy to stop this scheme would be to select a new Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz makes a compelling case that, next Tuesday, “House Conservatives Must Veto Boehner and D.C. Oligarchy”–

“The first opportunity for this ad hoc group will be the Speaker’s election on January 6.  John Boehner has undermined the mandate of the election by supporting Obama’s illegal and dangerous amnesty.  It’s time for a group of incoming freshmen and existing conservatives to band together and restore the mandate by deposing John Boehner.  We all understand that we lack the votes to elect a solid conservative as Speaker of the House, but we do have veto power with 30 votes to deny Boehner the requisite 218 votes to win reelection, and that veto power must be exercised.
Some conservatives have expressed concern over shooting at the Speaker for fear of losing committee assignments due to retaliation.  But they must understand that the only way to actually obtain leverage and demand better committee assignments is by displaying a show of force and appointing a leader of a new faction that has enough votes to veto bad leaders and their bad ideas.  The next speaker – most likely another establishment guy – who would emerge from the ensuing brokered conference meeting, would be on a tight leash and would have to make some important commitments, such as opposing amnesty and placing conservatives on key committees.”

Read Horowitz’ entire brief outlining ways and means of restoring a strong conservative voice in the House Republican Conference.

RedState chief Erick Erickson pointed out in his “House Conservatives Have the Power and Should Depose Speaker John Boehner”–

“Some will argue that a vote against Boehner is a mere protest vote. It is not. There are 30 House conservatives whose vote against Boehner, along with the united front of Democrats voting for Pelosi, could deny him reelection. These 30 would be exercising a veto. There would be no chance of a Democrat becoming Speaker (an obvious point but an argument sure to be advanced by some Republican), because a actual majority of the whole House of Representatives is required. Republicans would simply go back and re-nominate someone else who would not be subsequently vetoed.”

Serious Republicans should be asking** their state and local committees quickly to meet, deliberate, and make recommendations–

  • about choosing the right House Republican leadership; and
  • about whether to support amnesty schemes that will significantly transform both our electorate and our work force.

** Can you imagine the Republican Party of Illinois or Ohio in 1860 hesitating to weigh in strongly on slavery expansion? Angelo Codevilla recalled for us the Lincoln-Douglas debates of 1858–
“Our founding generation was very well educated.
Abraham Lincoln — Stephen Douglas debated on the highest level in front of a bunch of farmers – who understood what they were saying.
The debates were recorded by a stenographer.
The stenographer recorded the crowd saying, ‘Stick to the point, Lincoln.’ ‘No, no, Douglas — not so!’”

“God Loves Christmas”- A Hopeful Homily By Mike Giere

Christmas, I think, is a day for everyone.

Whether you’re a Christian or not.

Sure, it’s a day of special celebration that commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ.

But it seems to me that God – as only God can engineer events – meant it for everyone.

That’s because God is primarily in the people business.

Regardless of how much we learn scientifically and intellectually about our universe and ourselves, somehow most of us end up back at God.

Pretty simple really. We love our parents because we can see that we are part of them and that they provided for us when we couldn’t do so for ourselves. We love them as the years roll by because we increasingly see ourselves in them.

Just so with God. He is obvious.

We can look around the world and can clearly observe that it is not random at all. It is an incredible symphony of material and physical creation, intricate and planned to the last molecule, the last cell, and the last atom.

We look at ourselves and see that we are each hand-crafted, molded with trillions of atoms and that we too are creators. Chips off the old block.

I believe the Christmas story.

I believe Christ was God, born into mankind as Savior and a perfect Sacrifice that would allow us to receive what we could not otherwise possess – forgiveness and life everlasting.

Christmas is also a celebration that carries across the days, the years, the centuries, and the millennia, a celebration of that which humans need most: Hope.

Hope in ourselves that we can reach for that which is bigger and better than what we are so often.

Hope that life has a meaning beyond ourselves.

Hope that the hard things we do mean that tomorrow will be better than the day we leave behind.

Hope that the evil that corrupts our own hearts and that we see in the world will someday end forever.

Hope. I think that is why we have a Christmas Day. I believe that’s why this is a day for everyone, and why the God of All Hope loves Christmas.

MD Overpass Media Reflects Conservative Outrage At Speaker


Overpass_Boehner-wideMaryland’s Ed Hunter and Lewis Porter displayed these banners on an I-95 overpass in Prince Georges County last Friday.

Activist Hunter estimates an audience of 25,000 cars.



And on the national stage, RedState chief Erick Erickson declared last Tuesday

“House Conservatives Have the Power and Should Depose Speaker John Boehner”!

Influential conservative Erickson explained–

“Some will argue that a vote against Boehner is a mere protest vote. It is not. There are 30 House conservatives whose vote against Boehner, along with the united front of Democrats voting for Pelosi, could deny him reelection. These 30 would be exercising a veto. There would be no chance of a Democrat becoming Speaker (an obvious point but an argument sure to be advanced by some Republican), because an actual majority of the whole House of Representatives is required. Republicans would simply go back and re-nominate someone else who would not be subsequently vetoed.
Think of it as a Supreme Court nomination that needs to be confirmed by the Senate. When the Senate rejects a President’s nominee, it forces the President to go back to the drawing board and nominate someone new that is acceptable to the Senate. The Republican Conference would do that in this analogy by nominating someone that would not be vetoed by the 30.
This is also why the 30 would not need to be unified on who they wanted to replace Boehner—another common problem in removing Boehner. The conspirators can never agree on who the replacement should be. But if you veto Boehner and throw it back to the conference, with a willingness to stand firm on future bad options, House Republicans will eventually gravitate towards a real conservative who is well liked by many Republicans. It may take some time, but it will be worth it.”

Read all of Erickson’s editorial.

Faithful readers know we have been warning about the good Mr. Boehner and his circle for some time: click here then here.

Yesterday Monoblogue posted an insightful and closely related essay here: “The required renovation of Andy Harris.”

Conservatives in the GOP — locally and nationally – face important crossroads soon.

John Boehner Enables Obama To Continue “Transforming America”

“By repeatedly passing bills that contradict the identity of Republican voters and of the majority of Republican elected representatives, the Republican leadership has made political orphans of millions of Americans.” — Angelo Codevilla in Forbes

Last evening the Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner put flesh and blood on the phrase “bi-partisan ruling class.”

He did so by openly working with a skilled revolutionary who is president of the United States to secure House passage of a massive appropriations bill called the Cromnibus.

The measure gives the president’s regime money to pursue its transformative goals for our society through next September 30.

The most salient of these goals is — by lawless executive action — regularizing millions of illegal aliens and likely putting them on a path to citizenship.

This is a means of diluting our votes with those of the new citizens whom president Obama anticipates — putative new voters who already expect big government and are little used to liberty and civic order.

But the administration will also use the money approved by the House yesterday to advance the president’s many other objectives, among them:

Obamacare will sink its roots further.

Federal agencies will — through administrative schemes–

  • tell local police departments how to do their business,
  • tell local schools whom they may punish by ethnicity,
  • tell local zoning authorities how to exercise their powers for “fairness” in housing,

while seeking ways to curtail energy production and thus prosperity through “environmental” regulation.

Not least important, monies are made available for wars in the Middle East, whose objectives and means and metrics of victory have never been debated by the Congress.

For this president has established a reputation for injuring our allies and rewarding our enemies.

And the new 114th Congress will — thanks to Mr. Boehner and his circle — have no means of checking any of this administration’s missteps and overreaches — save for impeaching the president or his lieutenants.

So what is to be done?

First, recognize that the Beltway Republicans — those who speak for the GOP Congressional leadership and who try to shape the path to the 2016 GOP presidential nomination and who reflect the views of very large donors — simply do not share our conservative values. 

Indeed, they disdain them.

Moreover, the Beltway Republicans have too effectively carried out their plans to purge conservative candidates from the GOP and to bar conservatives from leadership positions in the House and likely soon in the Senate.

In terms of policy, the Beltway Republicans are the megaphone of the “cheap labor” interests behind Mr. Boehner’s love for amnesty.

Also recognize that many in the House Republican Conference fear Mr. Boehner and his system more than their constituents.  

Many House GOP members, moreover, simply do not see their first task as protecting Americans against a revolutionary regime — they don’t even grasp the extent of what we all face from the Obama Administration.

After yesterday’s votes, we must carefully verify before trusting any House Republican who did not vote here against the Rule on the Cromnibus. A few more “no” votes at that point would have forced major revisions.

But honor the 16 House Republicans here who did vote against the Rule which passed only 214-212.

Of the 67 Republicans who voted against the Cromnibus itself, four were from Virginia; none from Maryland. 

Nationally, states with four or more Republicans voting against the Cromnibus were Texas (14), Florida (5), South Carolina (5), Arizona (4), and Virginia (4), the last represented by the Old Dominion’s David Brat, Morgan Griffith, Robert Hurt, and Robert Wittman.

Second, give real thought to how effective national and state-level conservative organizations can get underway, soon.

Conservatives must organize–

  • to cope with what John Boehner has bankrolled with our money;
  • to have a strong voice in the 2016 presidential election; 
  • to aim at winning the next generation as well as the next few elections.

Stay tuned. We shall have more to say on this, and always welcome your own careful analyses.

UPDATED! A Big Noise–Now–To Allow Vote On Anti-Amnesty Amendment!

UPDATED DECEMBER 10! Neil Munro reports here:

“GOP members have released their draft amendment to defund President Barack Obama’s national amnesty.
‘None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available, including any funds or fees collected or otherwise made available for expenditure, by this division or any other Act, or otherwise available to the Secretary of Homeland Security, for any fiscal year may be used to implement, administer, carry out, or enforce the [amnesty] policies,’ says the short amendment.
The new anti-amnesty language is being pushed by Arizona Rep. Matt Salmon, South Carolina’s Rep. Mick Mulvaney and Virginia Rep. Dave Brat, who unseated the GOP’s pro-amnesty majority leader, Rep. Eric Cantor, in a June 2014 primary vote.
They’re urging voters to call their legislators’ offices to demand passage of the amendment. . . .The amendment will be examined on Wednesday [today] by the powerful rules committee, which sets the rules for debates.” (Highlighting Forum’s)

A Big Noise–Now–To Allow Vote On Anti-Amnesty Amendment!


The indefatigable Neil Munro (Daily Caller) just reports in hisGOP Representatives Demand Vote, Fairness On Amnesty” here – –

“Rank-and-file Republican legislators will ask the House’s rules committee Tuesday to allow an anti-amnesty vote during the floor debate over the 2015 government budget.
But unless there’s huge wave of phone calls from voters to Congress, the request will likely be rejected by GOP leaders prior to a Thursday debate.
That’s because the chairman of the rules committee, Texas Rep. Pete Sessions, was caught on video telling Democrats last week that he’ll push for an 2015 amnesty that would provide more foreign workers to U.S. companies. Rep. Sessions is a close ally of House Speaker John Boehner, who has so far blocked efforts to defund the amnesty.
The new anti-amnesty language is being pushed by Arizona Rep. Matt Salmon, South Carolina Rep. Mick Mulvaney, and Virginia Rep. Dave Brat, who unseated House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a June 2014 primary vote.” (Highlighting Forum’s)

Conservatives should be in touch with their House GOP member by phone this afternoon

State Republican leaders – Party officials and state lawmakers — should show their true grit by insisting their GOP delegation weigh in to allow an anti-amnesty vote on the Giant Spending Omnibus.

RPV Advance Summing Up: Two Uneasy Coalitions

My clear impression from the RPV Advance this weekend in Chantilly, Virginia mirrors the national GOP: two uneasy coalitions stuck together.  

One group is robust, willing to fight, and clearly driven by policy and principle.

The other is much more personality driven, looking for a soft landing in the culture war, and interested in the politics of accommodation.

The growing dissonance between the two coalitions is the dark lining under the smashing GOP election victories of last month.

They were won with the votes of working class Americans who now expect action on ending illegal immigration and amnesty, replacing Obamacare, and stopping government policies that destroy jobs, wages and savings.

If these voters are betrayed – again – then the 2016 presidential election could be an even more disastrous repeat of 2012, where millions of working class voters stayed home.

This is the outreach and “engagement” Virgina Republicans should be talking about.

RPV Advance Bottom Line: Dave Brat’s The Real Deal

The new leader of conservatives in Virginia is clearly Representative Dave Brat.

He is dynamic, engaged on policy, and a man of obvious character and depth.

Last evening in Chantilly, he took time with well-wishers, worked the RPV Advance crowd with a quick smile and impressed everyone – he’s the real deal.  

Introducing governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Brat was received with a boisterous standing ovation.

He briefly talked about his own contest and reminded the audience at the Gala Dinner that he put together a broad coalition of working Americans of both parties and across all age groups.

His stunning victories at the polls are testimony that conservative principles work . . . every time they are tried.

The GOP & Us — Time For Conservatives To Move On?

“Few Republican voters, never mind the larger country class, have confidence that the party is on their side. Because, in the long run, the country class will not support a party as conflicted as today’s Republicans, those Republican politicians who really want to represent it will either reform the party in an unmistakable manner, or start a new one as Whigs like Abraham Lincoln started the Republican Party in the 1850s.” ––Angelo Codevilla (Highlighting Forum’s.)

We must now face hard facts: the conservative base and the GOP Establishment simply have significantly different aims.

The failure of the Congressional Republican leadership to respond effectively to the president’s executive amnesty last week makes this clear as Michele Bachmann explained here.

See similar NRO reports here and here.

These lamentable developments constitute what are loosely called game-changers. For our country — our civic order, our public order, our sovereignty, our already over-expanded Federal and state welfare systems — will become radically “transformed” unless the Obama Administration’s immigration actions are reversed. Last evening Nicholas Stix in VDARE here posted The Myth Of The 11 Million: Wall Street Analyst Estimates 21-25 Million Illegals Now In U.S.”

Whatever the differences are between the key immigration numbers-crunchers, the numbers of illegals the Obama Administration is regularizing  — and likely will end up regularizing — are breathtaking. 

A supine Republican Party — see Dana Perino, a Bush Dynasty voice, here – – will be of no use to any citizen who seeks to keep and strengthen our constitutional order.

We don’t see how the conservative base and the Establishmentwithout a prompt and significant change of course by the Republican Leadership — can much longer continue sailing under the same flag.

Consequently we must weigh a conservative alternative in time for 2016.

Here, for example, is some very troubling current mischief by the GOP Establishment: their effort (via Rush’s report) to deny Jeff Sessions the chair of the Senate Budget Committee.

Recall that senator Sessions last Friday had declared here that “President’s Immigration Orders Have Sold Out The Middle Class.”

From the Establishment’s point of view, however, their effort against Mr. Sessions is quite understandable.

Sessions has a long-term vision: he speaks of a humble and honest populism; he has deconstructed not only the facts and the law of the open-borders advocates, but also exposed who they are and how they operate in both parties and in the White House; and, very important, Sessions is a senator who is not running for president. 

This allows him to be a traditional United States Senator, not having the understandable burden of constantly balancing the pressures of a national campaign with the exacting work and often controversial voting decisions of a conscientious senator.

It also makes him. as a major committee chair, relatively fireproof against the wiles of the Establishment.

For all these reasons, the Alabama senator is a threat to the incoming Senate GOP leadership unencumbered with principle, focused on short timelines, and only capable of deal-making, and to Speaker Boehner’s circle who have similar impairments.

The effort to deny Sessions his Senate Budget Committee chairmanship should tell even the most fervent Republican loyalist of the deplorable state of the GOP leadership.

We should all prepare ourselves for tumultuous developments sooner than we might wish. 

Neither the Obama Administration nor the responsibility-phobic GOP Establishment can likely cope with military, border, or public-health threats that can take on a life of their own right before our eyes.

We all have to think through how we respond as conservatives to today’s perils, and try to do so with a strong, united voice.

Very soon.

“Preserving What’s Left Of The Republic For Our Children…”

Monday evening Mark Levin continued his homilies (click here) on the urgency of Congress exercising its power of the purse right now, and, by doing so, maintaining our constitutional separation of powers.

Our post today is also about the necessity of conservatives immediately asking their GOP members not to bankroll the Obama Administration through next September 30 — but rather to approve only a short-term “continuing resolution” to mid-winter.

In this way, the new Congress can get their arms around the president’s programs and initiatives and rules to decide what moneys should — or should not — be provided, and with what restrictions, in an appropriation running until the end of the next fiscal year on September 30.

Let’s return to constitutional expert Levin who insisted Monday that – -

“We must preserve what’s left of the Republic for our children and grandchildren!”

But author Levin warns that the risk-averse GOP leadership is –

“a chorus of impotency” which they display in a “Conga line on Fox News.”

Review The Alarming Details Of What We Face!

Why is this of such vital concern this week? Before the Congress goes on Thanksgiving Recess Friday?

Because the president plans, perhaps within a few days, to expand his so-called executive actions to regularize millions more illegal immigrants already here, and to allow even more immigration. (Click here and here for likely details and consequences of such presidential action.)

But an equally pressing question is whether the House GOP, in this lame duck session, will give the administration money to operate through next September 30 without any serious restrictions on the worst of its policies.

As we explained, conservatives contend that the House GOP leadership should approve only a “continuing resolution” through mid-winter so that the new Congress can assess what moneys should (or should not) be provided to the Obama Administration, and with what limitations, in an appropriation bill running until the end of the next fiscal year on September 30.

Immigration expert Mark Krikorian summarizes our case as it touches amnesty and immigration –

“But all this depends on Congress approving a short-term spending bill (a Continuing Resolution or CR) now — one that would keep spending at the current (absurdly high) levels for the next two or three months, so the new GOP-run Congress can have a free hand. If spending were locked in till September 30 (the end of the fiscal year) the opportunity to halt the amnesty will be lost; it would take months to implement the amnesty, so little will have happened by January or February, but once millions of people are legalized, even if it’s ostensibly temporary, it will be impossible as a practical political matter to revoke their work permits, Social Security cards, drivers licenses, etc.” (Highlighting Forum’s)

And listen here via Secure Freedom Radio to NumbersUSA’s Rosemary Jenks.

She reveals “Executive Amnesty May be Coming to a Town Near You.”

Hear especially her “Part 4″ on the danger of more illegals voting in our elections.

Is The House GOP Leadership Listening?

Lamentably the House Appropriations Committee under the leadership of Kentucky Republican Hal Rogers apparently is bulling ahead with a giant “omnibus” bill bankrolling the Obama Administration through next September 30.

Exclusive–KY Tea Partiers ‘Actively Looking’ For Hal Rogers Primary Challenger For 2016 Over His Support For Omnibus” —

“[Tea Party spokesman Scott] Hofstra said Republicans on the ground in Kentucky are upset with Rogers’ efforts to fund Obama’s planned executive amnesty via an omnibus spending bill. He specifically cited a Breitbart News investigation, published Sunday night, which found that Rogers’ campaign contributor General Dynamics is in the running to print the documents necessary for Obama to implement an executive amnesty—and that the defense contractor expects that if wins the multi-million-dollar government deal it would print the documents at a facility in Rogers’ district.
‘The investigation into the interests of General Dynamics and amnesty is not unexpected,’ Hofstra said. ‘Hal, like Mitch McConnell, won reelection in spite of himself and his actions. He won because he wasn’t the Democrat.'”

As important as is halting lawless presidential action on amnesty and immigration, there are also other serious Obama programs or actions underway which only the Congressional power of the purse can stop or slow down.

Here is only a partial list of Obama programs that cannot be allowed to sink deeper roots, or failures to act that must be put right very soon —

Call your GOP House member — and ask your GOP state lawmakers and newly elected U.S. House members who will take their seats in January — to join you in encouraging the House GOP to become a chorus of courage, not of impotence.
