“There is no education in the second kick of a mule,” said Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.
“Surrender” and “betrayal,” are among the epithets coming the Speaker’s way.
Yet Boehner was holding a losing hand. Had he added a GOP wish-list bill to the debt ceiling, Harry Reid’s Senate would have rejected it. President Obama would have denounced it as putting at risk the full faith and credit of the United States.
How The GOP Plans To Crush The Tea Party Revolt

After House Republicans conceded on Tuesday that they would bring a debt ceiling bill to the floor for a vote without attaching policy concessions, the tea party seemed in open revolt, calling for the replacement of Speaker John Boehner (R-OH).
Meanwhile, incumbent Republican senators have quietly been working behind the scenes to cut off their funding sources.

Amnesty: Politicians Put Their Mouth Where Their Money Is
by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD February 7, 2014
News Flash – Republicans and Democrats do not work for the American people.
For the most part, the US government is a racket, a service that is fraudulently offered to solve a problem that may not exist, would not be affected if it did exist, or only exists due to the actions of government itself.
American politicians exploit the racket to run a swindle, taking money or property from someone by using lies or tricks.
One could successfully argue that many of those operating within our present political environment are in violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act (18 U.S.C. §§ 1961-1968) enacted into law on October 15, 1970.
In general, Republicans and Democrats con voters into giving them the power to use the voters’ own money (taxes) for the purpose of rewarding themselves and the wealthy donors, who fund their political campaigns and provide them with post-government employment.

It doesn\’t make sense no matter how you slice it, unless the Republicans are trying to damage themselves.
That\’s the only way it makes sense. The only way a Republican push for amnesty and immediate citizenship and all that makes any sense is if, for example, they don\’t like the Tea Party base and they\’re gonna do anything they can to anger them and get rid of them.

A Beat-up, Exhausted, and Terrified Republican Establishment
Posted on Monday, February 03, 2014 7:57:46 AM by Sir Napsalot
On almost every contemporary issue there is a populist, middle-class argument to be made against elite liberalism. Yet the Republican class in charge seems ossified in its inability to make a counter-argument for the middle class.
Never has the liberal agenda been so vulnerable, a logical development when bad ideas have had five years to prove themselves as very bad ideas.
When Obama is all done he will have taken high presidential popularity ratings, a supermajority in the Senate, and a large margin in the House and lost them all — if only the Republicans can make an adequate case that they represent the middle class, the Democrats only the very wealthy and the very dependent.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) thinks that the House GOP leadership’s renewed push this week to grant amnesty to illegal aliens would destroy the Republican Party’s chances at retaking the Senate in 2014. Cruz questioned how establishment Republicans unilaterally caving to Democrats on everything from the farm bill to the budget to the debt ceiling and more could think amnesty is a good idea at this time.
\”Right now, Republican leadership in both chambers is aggressively urging members to stand down on virtually every front: on the continuing resolution, on the budget, on the farm bill, on the debt ceiling,” Cruz said in a statement provided exclusively to Breitbart News on Thursday.

I have to tell you, I had no idea he was a threat to Hillary Clinton. I didn\’t even know that McDonnell was planning on running for president. But he must be doing something because the Democrats, after he\’s left office, have indicted him out there.
RUSH: I\’m gonna tell you what\’s really going on with this. And I don\’t mean to make light of charges. I mean, here\’s what\’s alleged. Bob McDonnell, the recent governor of Virginia and his wife, it is alleged, were given lavish gifts over the years, like a Rolex watch and designer clothes and $140,000 in cash. They also allegedly got free rides on jet airplanes and a joyride in a Ferrari. So these are very serious charges, unless you\’re a Democrat, and then this is standard operating procedure.

No matter how hard the Democrats wish it weren’t so, Christie is finished he won’t get the GOP nod | Coach is Right
By Kevin “Coach” Collins
This is disgusting and heartbreaking. Nevertheless, this scandal, as everything else that happens is being reported and viewed only in terms of the politics of its nature. Because of this fact Christie’s White House dream is over.
For the Democrats, this scandal is a serious blow. They had so hoped that Christie would be the Republicans nominee in 2016, but alas that is over now.
In a reflexive response The Atlantic’s David Graham is reassuring everyone who will listen that “rumors of Chris Christie’s demise have been greatly exaggerated.” Really? How interesting. The Atlantic is wrong and here’s why.

The Price Of ‘Certainty’
Sec. 401. of the ‘‘Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013’’ (on page 2 of 77 pages) stipulates the obvious “Increase in contributions to Federal Employees’ Retirement System for new employees.” Well of course.

Many patriots these days lament that the Republican Party has “lost its way” and “gone wrong.” It has “diverged” from the fiscally responsible, small government philosophy of Republican heroes like Robert Taft whom Eisenhower’s handlers finagled out of the nomination for President in 1952.
We are told that is why today’s Republican Establishment hates Dr. Ron Paul with such a passion; that they hate him because, like Taft, he is the quintessential Republican.
Patriots who say that are mistaken, of course. The reason the Republican Establishment hates Dr. Paul is precisely that he is not a traditional, mainstream Republican, that his platform of freedom is an aberration. The Republican Party didn’t “go wrong,” didn’t “go left.”

Even shining a penlight into the inky darkness of political life in Washington, DC would show that we’ve been forced into the role of audience to the well-orchestrated Act that life in public office has gained over citizenry.
It starts by recognizing that the public office of the day is an entire, well-scripted, ongoing Act; an Act that keeps 90 percent of an unsuspecting and unwitting public at large in the dark without a match.

Apparently unsatisfied with the overwhelming capitulation of congressional Republicans, Barack Obama once again took aim at conservatives during a speech marking the end of the government shutdown.He began by issuing the obligatory pronouncement that there “are no winners here,” despite the fact his party received virtually all of its demands.The shutdown has “inflicted completely unnecessary damage on our economy,” he noted, pivoting toward once again blaming the entire fiasco on his political opponents.“
Some of the same folks who pushed for the shutdown and threatened default claim their actions were needed to get America back on the right track,” he continued, “to make sure we’re strong.”
Instead, he concluded, the stalemate has “encouraged our enemies, it’s emboldened our competitors, and it’s depressed our friends.”
He then began identifying those he holds responsible for the discord in Washington, D.C., saying “all of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists, and the bloggers, and the talking heads on radio and the professional activists who profit from conflict,” saying such voices don’t represent “what the majority of Americans sent us here to do.”
Time and again, Obama finds it easy and safe to call out strong conservative figures in the media while intentionally ignoring the blatant partisanship constantly broadcast over most mainstream airwaves.
Without bloggers and talk radio, the conservative voice would be largely silenced in America — which is precisely the left’s mission.Since efforts to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine or some variation thereof have been thwarted……

We are less than one and a half weeks from the Showdown at the CR (Continuing Resolution) Corral, and establishment politicians, of both parties, are panicking.
The latest turn of the screw came last week, when opposition from 43 apparently non-establishment Republicans forced Speaker Boehner to cancel a vote on a CR because that CR would have continued to fund Obamacare.
………..Another mention of principalities and powers is in Colossians 1:16, “For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.” Here is the clear statement that God is the Creator and Ruler over all authorities, whether they submit to Him or rebel against Him.
The White House said Wednesday that the GOP was engaged in “essentially an all-out civil war” and accused Speaker John Boehner R-Ohio of bending to “the will” of a small group of House conservatives after deciding to press forward with a government funding bill that would strip funding for ObamaCare.
