GOP House Speaker John Boehner Has Proclaimed Himself an Enemy to the Tea Party

Earlier this week, House Speaker John Boehner, the nominal Republican from Ohio, threw down the gauntlet and announced that he is working to defeat anything conservatives and tea party groups want to get done in Washington and the group Tea Party Patriots is ready to accept that challenge.

Leading the establishment charge to continue the growth of big government and defeat conservatism, Boehner attacked those looking to lower taxes, to shrink the size of government, and to defeat the liberal left. The group Tea Party Patriots slammed Boenher saying he “declared war on the Tea Party” with his “smug and pretentious rant.”

Boeher absurdly said that it is the conservative groups and tea partiers working to promulgate conservative principles who are lying to the people and “using using our members and … the American people for their own goals.”

Of course, the truth is, it is John Boehner who is the liar. He stands there before us day in and day out mouthing the words of conservatism and goes back into his chambers and works for the exact opposite thing by cooperating with Democrats and big government, center left Republicans.

This Paul Ryan/Patty Murray budget deal is a perfect example of the lies John Boehner, Paul Ryan and the establishment center left GOP is pushing on America.

This bill is nothing but manure to grow government. It hikes spending, does nothing about entitlement reform, and gives union special deals. And what did the Republicans supposedly get out of the deal? Reductions of spending over ten years, we are told.

This, of course, is an outright lie. No Congress ever reduces spending “over ten years.” Every time this phrase is placed in a deal it is an outright lie and everyone in Washington knows it.

Why is it a lie? Because the budgetary actions of one congress cannot be held to another, later congress. In other words, what this year’s congressional session does cannot bind a future session.

So, if spending is not cut for this budget, it will not be cut later. Cuts made today in this budget are the only actual cuts that can or will happen. This claim that things will happen over a five or ten-year period is simply a lie.

Paul Ryan knows it’s a lie and so does John Boehner. Any future congress can change the deal anytime it wants and they always do… and that change is always to spend more.

John Boehner and every Republican that voted for this budget voted against conservative principles. They know it and they did it on purpose.

Here is the broadside that Boehner unleashed against conservatives and tea party groups on Thursday:

What do you think of this budget deal? Are you for it or against it? Tell us in the comments.

    In budgets, it’s all detail. What’s being cut? What’s being increased?

    What would you cut? What would you increase?

    If it was up to me, we’d be out of Afghanistan in 60 days, that would save money.

    We would not be building missile defense sites all over eastern Europe that the Europeans did not even ask for to allegedly defend against the hypothetical threat of Iranian missiles that haven’t been made yet, that probably would not work anyways.

    The sugar and ethanol subsidies would be gone – I agree with Rush Limbaugh on those.

    I’d cut that separate US Embassy to the Vatican building, too – it will fit well within the embassy to Italy compound.

    I’d cut funding for a new manned bomber and more Ford-class carriers – both are obsolete.

    • jim_m

      I’d be for cutting you benefits.

      • Commander_Chico

        Well, they are cutting veterans’ benefits. Of course armchair generals don’t get any benefits.

        • Brucehenry

          Even the benefit of hindsight.

          See: Iraq, Vietnam, etc

        • jim_m

          I did not mean veteran’s benefits in general, although with a country nearly bankrupt such cuts are inevitable, I meant yours specifically.

        • Retired military

          Yet we are giving Vietnam “farmers” $17m to help them with global warming problems. That’s your boy there Chico. Obama and Kerry. Your dream team.

    • Retired military

      I would cut racists.

      Especially racists who spout stuff and cant back it up.

      Things like

      “As I said before, try answering what people say, and not try to put words in others’ mouths, debate goes better” – Chico, Famed Wizbangblog poster
      Hey Chico how about some decent answers to a few simple questions. You know to improve debate.

      1 Oprah,the Lamestream media, Reid, Pelosi, and other major dems have called people racist simply because they oppose Obama’s
      policies. Yet when they oppose those same policies when espoused by Bill, Hillary. Reid, Pelos, Gore, Kerry, etc etc they weren’t considered racist then by Oprah, etc etc (I don’t know isn’t good enough)

      2. People were called racist anarchist terrorists when they tried to delay Obamacare yet Al Franken who did the same thing wasn’t called Racist. Do you feel that it is because he is a democrat and the people doing the call just playing the race card because that is all they have?

      3. People were called racist anarchist terrorist when they called for the delay of all or part of Obamacare and Obama who is unconstitutionally doing the same thing is not called a racist anarchist terrorist. Do you feel that it is because he is a democrat and the people doing the calling are just playing the race card because that is all they have?

      • jim_m

        Great can we cut WH funding then? And how about cutting off Sheila Jackson Lee?

        • Retired military

          I would throw in Maxine waters, Reid and Pelosi for a group discount.

  • JWH

    For the budget agreement.

    Not one thing you have done has supported a conservative position You worthless cowering jack ass. GET LOST!

  • Brucehenry

    LOL the True Believer hates everyone.

    McConnell sucks. McCain sucks. Boehner sucks. Rubio sucks. Ryan sucks. Graham sucks. Only Cruz, apparently, doesn’t suck — and he sucks a little bit because he said nice stuff about the “terrorist” Mandela.

    Good luck with your purity campaign. Maybe you can purge enough splitters to equal the Popular Front in its purity:

    • jim_m

      It’s not about purity, it’s about politicians who have turned away from conservative ideas once they have spent a couple of years in DC. Frequently the beltway ends up corrupting conservatives who originally campaign on the values of smaller government and then once they see what they can gain by being able to distribute access to an enormous government they change their minds and sell out.

      I suppose the difference is that for you, the leftist pols are already stating that they want to perpetuate a corrupt system and to expand that corruption as far as possible making economic gain a question of whether or not you have the right political ties. Since you are in favor of a kleptocratic state this is not a problem. For those of us who want something better it remains a problem.

      • Brucehenry

        Yes I’m in favor of a kleptocracy since the current one has worked out so well for me personally lol.

        • jim_m

          At least you are being honest for once.

          • Brucehenry

            Anyway good luck with your new, smaller GOP consisting only of starry-eyed idealists who never compromise with evil lefties.

            Ought to be real successful. Will it be a third party or will it be the second and the old, corrupt sad sacks like Boehner be the third?

          • LiberalNightmare

            Thanks alot Bruce!

            Good luck with your party, which continues to actually accomplish the things it blamed on the right for years.

          • jim_m

            Yeah, like bringing fascism to the US.

          • Brucehenry

            Maybe, but it has also won 4 of the last 6 presidential elections. Cruz-Lee ’16!

          • jim_m

            but it has also won 6 of the last 4 presidential elections

            LOL. Moron.

          • Brucehenry

            Typo fixed, Mr Food Argument. Sheesh.

          • jim_m

            Don’t drink and comment

          • Brucehenry

            I was gonna say the same to you. You’re mean when you been a-drinkin’, Jim.

            I haven’t had a drop of alcohol for 4 years and 6 months as of the 16th.

          • jim_m

            Sorry, but you’re wrong. I’m mean all the time.

          • Commander_Chico
          • jim_m
      • Wild_Willie

        Actually I think this is a huge blunder on Boehner’s side. Never poke the lion especially when the TEA Party has been poked by the left and MSM for years. I was becoming a little inactive, but not now. I have been awakened. ww

    • LiberalNightmare

      Some people think that when a politician makes a promise, it should be kept.

      • Commander_Chico

        Question about your avatar: is Vladimir Putin your ideal political leader?

        • jim_m

          Does yours indicate that you play with dolls?

          • Commander_Chico

            No, that’s the hood ornament on my Roadmaster.

            Does yours indicate you’re always ready to hang yourself?

            Of course I don’t want you to, I’m a nice guy.

          • jim_m

            Nope, it is a racist allusion to lynching.

    From the video above:

    John Boehner:

    ..I’m as conservative as anyone around this place…

    Yeah…right. Here’s to calling ‘BullShit’ on Speaker Boehner.

    In 2004 Congressman Boehner voted for the HR 4818 Omnibus bill.

    Heritage.org at that time described it as follows:

    Another Pork-Laden Omnibus Spending Bill
    By Brian M. Riedl and Keith Miller

    Click here to for a list of pork projects.

    As runaway spending pushes the cost of government over $20,000 per household and the federal budget deficit past $400 billion, Congress continues to pile an endless supply of special interest projects onto the backs of weary taxpayers.[1] With the recently-passed fiscal 2005 omnibus spending bill (H.R. 4818), Congress is expected the break its own record-set in last year’s budget-for pork projects, with new grants for such items as therapeutic horseback riding and a school mariachi music curriculum. This performance is simply embarrassing and highlights the need for reform of Congress’s obviously broken budget process.[2]

    Historically, Congress funded grant programs and then asked federal agencies, governors, and mayors to award the grants competitively to the most capable applicants. But over the past few years, Congress has increasingly bypassed these agencies, governors, and mayors and selected grant recipients on its own. Thus, the Franco-American Heritage Center and the Greater Syracuse Sports Hall of Fame have been chosen by Congress this year to receive earmarks, the legislative term for pork projects. No longer do grant seekers simply submit persuasive grant proposals to unbiased agencies. Now, they must master the Washington influence game and hire lobbyists to win federal funds.[3]

    Predictably, an entire lobbying industry has emerged to secure pork projects for those willing to pay for their services. Organizations and local governments seeking federal money can choose between dozens of powerful lobbying firms who effectively trade campaign contributions for earmarks.[4]

    Auctioning pork projects to the highest bidder reduces the number of merit-based grants distributed by federal agencies, governors, and mayors. These shortages, in turn, induce Congress to expand merit-based programs-and then earmark those new funds as well. Consequently, the number of pork projects skyrocketed from under 2,000 six years ago to 10,656 in the 2004 budget. Total spending on pork projects has correspondingly increased to over $23 billion…[5]

    The factions wage verbal war in an attempt to control the Republican Party and force all other members to follow and obey. In the finest traditions of the two party system they spend all of their efforts demonizing the opposition rather than promoting anything positive.
