WTF Moment Of The Day … John Boehner: “I’m The Most Anti-Establishment Speaker We’ve Ever Had” (Video)

From the article:

“Alas, just like the Obama administration is apparently unaware of this thing called “Google”, so Boehner and his staffers should familiarize themselves with the website OpenSecrets: it is there that the full establishmentarianism of every elected corporate puppet is laid out for all the peasants to see.”


John Boehner: “I’m The Most Anti-Establishment Speaker We’ve Ever Had” (ZeroHedge. Jan 8, 2015):

Today’s WTF moment of the day comes courtesy of The Daily Signal, in which we read that while speaking at his first press conference since being narrowly reelected as House speaker after some 24 republicans defected, the Ohio Republican argued he is the “most anti-establishment speaker we’ve ever had.” We further learn that “Boehner couldn’t disagree more with conservatives who label him an “establishment” Republican and a “squish.

This stunning revelation takes place 1:10 into the clip below.

‘Dear John, It’s Over!’ – Tea Party Group Launches ‘Replace Boehner’ Petition

“Dear John, It’s Over!” – Tea Party Group Launches “Replace Boehner” Petition (ZeroHedge, Feb 11, 2014):

Having folded (twice) once again, a growing number of Republicans are increasingly disavowed with Speaker Boehner. As WaPo reports, the Senate Conservatives Fund (a Tea Party group) is calling for the Speaker’s job, noting “unless we install a new leader who will actually go on offense, Democrats will never fear us and we will never have any leverage.” The group is launching a petition that seeks to encourage at least 15 House Republicans to refuse to support Boehner for speaker…

Dear John, IT's Over

John Boehner: We Are ‘On The Path To Default’, ‘It Is Time For Us To Stand And Fight’ (Video)

Boehner Says We Are “On The Path To Default”, “It Is Time For Us To Stand And Fight” (ZeroHedge, Oct 6, 2013):

Despite the late Friday market optimism that the government shutdown, and more importantly debt ceiling impasse, may both be coming to an end as more republicans appeared ready to pass a “clean” continuing resolution, it was only fitting that a few hours after Bank of America said an “agreement is almost impossible as long as Obamacare is on the table“, that the House speaker Boehner, who appeared on ABC with George Stephanopolous’ This Week earlier today, escalated matters once again making any near term resolution virtually impossible.

That this happens on day 6 of the government shutdown (and with neither chamber of Congress set to meet until Monday evening, an eight day or longer shutdown is virtually inevitable) is bad. That this is happening with 11 days left until the debt ceiling X-Date is worse, especially since the republicans have made it clear they will now look to roll the debt ceiling negotiation into the government shutdown debate, both of which are driven fundamentally by the republicans’ opposition to Obamacare. Furthermore, with the halfway reopening of the government following the recall of furloughed Pentagon civilian employees, the government’s cash will run out that much faster.

Boehner: ‘House Votes To Keep Govt’ Running’; US Troops Will Be Paid During Government Shutdown

Boehner: “House Votes To Keep Govt’ Running”; US Troops Will Be Paid During Government Shutdown (ZeroHedge, Sep 29, 2013):

Just like that, we are back to square minus one, with the House again punting to the senate:

  • HOUSE VOTES 231 TO 192 TO DELAY OBAMACARE FOR ONE YEAR, AVERT GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN
  • 2 DEMOCRATS VOTE YES, 2 REPUBLICANS VOTE NO
  • HOUSE UNANIMOUSLY VOTES 423-0 ON “PAY OUR MILITARY ACT” ENSURING TROOPS ARE PAID DURING GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN

Boehner promptly took to Twitter to be social-network(ally) hip:

As reported earlier, the Senate will promptly squash said bill once again as it did with the defunding CR, in effect leaving essentially no time to cobble a deal together ahead of the the October 1 government shutdown.

22 Nauseating Quotes About The NSA Spying Scandal

22 Nauseating Quotes From Hypocritical Establishment Politicians About The NSA Spying Scandal (Economic Collapse, June 12, 2013):

Establishment politicians from both major political parties are rushing to defend the NSA and condemn whistleblower Edward Snowden.  They are attempting to portray Edward Snowden as a “traitor” and the spooks over at the NSA that are snooping on all of us as “heroes”.  In fact, many of the exact same politicians that once railed against government spying during the Bush years are now staunchly defending it now that Obama is in the White House.  But it isn’t just Democrats that are acting shamefully.  Large numbers of Republican politicians that love to give speeches about “freedom” and “liberty” are attempting to eviscerate the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  The government is not supposed to invade our privacy and investigate us unless there is probable cause to do so.  Apparently many of our politicians misunderstood when they read the novel 1984 by George Orwell.  It wasn’t supposed to be an instruction manual.  We should be thanking Edward Snowden for exposing the deep corruption that is eating away at our own government like cancer.  Now the American people need to pick up the ball and start demanding answers, because without a doubt we are going to see establishment politicians from both major political parties try to shut this scandal down.  Establishment Democrats and establishment Republicans both love the Big Brother surveillance grid that the U.S. government has constructed, and they are both making it abundantly clear that they will defend the NSA to the very end.

The following are 22 nauseating quotes from hypocritical establishment politicians that show exactly how they feel about the NSA spying scandal…
