Just heard on the radio that John Boehner (the crier), Speaker of the House, is going to leave the House of Representatives in October.
Hopefully we get someone with a spine who will stand up to the criminal in chief.

Anyone confirm it?

All the major news networks and N.Y. Times are reporting it also.

So who will be his replacement? Someone with a set of balls I hope.
Is there such a person in the GOP these days?

And which RINO will replace him???
Kevin Mccarthy, The worst of the two evils. Two spineless cowards, bending over for Obama every chance they can. I'll have to re-route my case of vaseline I was sending to Boehner and have it now shipped to Mccarthy.

This is your new POS RINO

A majority of both parties want the government put in check, which is why you see the "conservative" movement oust the Rhinos. The problem on the left is that their entire base votes on emotion. While the vast majority there also wants the government put in check, each minority that makes up their base will vote for the thing most important to them....free stuff, LBGTSKHDF support, "womans rights"/abortion, amnesty, blah blah blah. It would be nice to see a reset on the liberal side, but you wont because they wont have to, their base will still vote for them because of the single emotional issue no matter how badly they screw them everywhere else.

Preserve Second Amendment rights
Assembly Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy will be presented with the California Rifle and Pistol Association's Outstanding Legislator Award during the group's 130th anniversary banquet on Saturday in Irvine. McCarthy said. "My son and I recently went hunting together, enjoying an activity that is truly part of our national heritage, and I will continue working to preserve the Second Amendment rights of all conscientious gun owners and sellers." Source: Campaign press release, "Rifle And Pistol Association" , Feb 17, 2006


National cross-state standard for concealed carry.
McCarthy signed H.R.197&S.845
Establishes a national standard for the carrying of concealed firearms (other than a machinegun or destructive device) by non-residents. Authorizes a person who has a valid permit to carry a concealed firearm in one state and who is not prohibited from carrying a firearm under federal law to carry a concealed firearm in another state:
  • Notwithstanding any law of any State, a person who is not prohibited by Federal law from possessing a firearm and is carrying a valid license to carry a concealed firearm may carry in another State a concealed firearm.
  • If such other State issues licenses to carry concealed firearms, the person may carry a concealed firearm in the State under the same restrictions which apply in that State.
  • If such other State does not issue licenses to carry concealed firearms, the person may not carry a concealed firearm in a police station, in a courthouse, at a meeting of a governing body, in a school, at an athletic event, in an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages, or inside an airport, except to the extent expressly permitted by State law.

I'd like to see some evidence of this democrat desire to put the gov't in check (or of any RINO efforts for the same). All I've seen is the democrats expanding the government and pushing ot more and more to the left... and the RINOs going along to stay in power.

Not too good on Conservative review (rated F)




Kill Funding for Obama's Executive Amnesty


Vote Result Date: 3/3/2015

  • Conservative Position: Yes

  • McCarthy Vote: No

While considering HR 240, the FY 2015 Department of Homeland Security funding bill, in the Senate, newly elected Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) worked with Democrats and liberal Republicans to re-instate funding for Obama's executive amnesty. This vote is on whether or not to kill the bill that contains funding for Obama's executive amnesty. If this motion would have passed it would have stopped Obama's executive amnesty from being funded.

Obamatrade -- Fast Track Authority for TPP


Vote Result Date: 6/18/2015

  • Conservative Position: No

  • McCarthy Vote: Yes

This vote was on the key procedural provision known as Trade Promotion Authority (TPA). TPA grants a special fast-track status to trade deals negotiated by the president and as such has been dubbed Obamatrade. While conservatives generally support trade agreements as important tools for lowering tariffs and trade barriers, and TPA is often needed in order to effectively negotiate with other countries, this particular TPA was problematic for a number of reasons. Typically, a TPA is passed at the beginning of negotiation cycles so that Congress directs the president to negotiate along specific parameters. In this case, the three primary treaties that would receive fast-track status under this TPA have already been negotiated in secret for years. There is no reason to pass fast track authority without releasing more details about these trade agreements to the public. Moreover, given this president's penchant for implementing major policies without Congress, there was a widespread fear that Obama would use these trade agreements to pursue liberal policies, such as changes to our immigration system, labor laws, and global warming regulations. For example, according to WikiLeaks, one of the impending trade deals - the Trade in Service Agreement (TISA) - contains an entire immigration section, including a provision prohibiting US authorities from conducting in-person interviews for certain visa categories. Additionally, the main trade deal - the Trans Pacific Partnership - contains a "living agreement" provision, which could enable Obama to expand the scope of the agreement during the final months of his presidency or add countries like China to the agreement. Finally, GOP Leadership negotiated a deal to advance Trade Promotion Authority and in exchange for Democrat votes, promised to renew the crony capitalist Export-Import Bank and a failed government handout program known as Trade Adjustment Assistance, a subsidy bailout for labor unions.
