Boehner and Obama join to pass bill funding ObamaCare and amnesty

Terrence P. Jeffrey is reporting that House Speaker John Boehner and Barack Obama joined forces today to push their respective party members to provide 219 votes -- one more than was needed -- to ensure passage of an omnibus government funding bill that permits the administration to spend money implementing ObamaCare and Obama's planned unilateral actions that will effectively amnesty as many as five million illegal aliens.


The bill, according to the Congressional Budget Office, will allow the administration to spend $1,188,927,000,000 on discretionary government programs. It provides funding for amost all of the government through the end of this fiscal year -- which occurs on Sept. 30, 2015 -- and for the Department of Homeland Security through Feb. 27, 2015.

Because it does not prohibit Obama from using appropriated money to implement his plan to legalize illegal aliens, he may move forward -- drawing taxed and borrowed money from the Treasury -- to carry out this plan.

The bill also allows Obama to withdraw taxed and borrowed money from the Treasury to continue implementing ObamaCare.

Additionally, the bill also does not prohibit the administration from continuing its annual federal grants to Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider.

Nor does it include language prohibiting the administration from continuing to enforce the regulations it issued under ObamaCare requiring almost all health-care plans in the United States to provide co-pay free coverage for sterilizations, contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs.

Many church groups, charities, schools, business owners and individuals have argued that these regulations force them to violate their consciences and religious beliefs. More than 100 lawsuits have been filed against them. House Speaker Boehner himself has described the regulations as attack on religious freedom, and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops had previously asked the Congress to attach language to "must-pass" legislation that would provide Americans with a conscience exception to mandates such as this that force them to act against their moral or religious beliefs.

However, the bill that Boehner pushed through the House tonight -- with the help of Obama -- permits the administration to use money from the Treasury to enforce this regulation that forces Christians into complicity in the taking of innocent unborn human lives.

The vote on the bill took place at 9:37 p.m., less than two and a half hours before the continuing resolution that has been funding the government was set to expire. The vote had originally been scheduled for the afternoon but was delayed at the last minute when Boehner and the Republican leadership could not muster the 218 votes needed to carry a majority in the 435-seat House.

In the end 219 members voted for the omnibus spending bill, 206 voted against it, and 10 did not vote.

A total of 67 Republican members stood against their speaker and voted against the bill. Fifty-seven House Democrats voted for it. Obama and Biden both reportedly called Democratic members urging them to vote for Boehner's spending bill to ensure its passage.

The Republicans have betrayed their constituents.

Despite handing Democrats a crushing defeat in November, but it’s the GOP and not Democrats who have signaled compromise.

John Boehner and Mitch McConnell reiterated their caucus would have nothing to do with shutting down the government. The House Republican leadership was desperate to pass a massive $1 trillion spending bill before the clock ran out on government funding at midnight. Obama wants it too. Conservatives hate it because it says nothing about the worst presidential power grab anyone can remember -- the unilateral amnesty

Though probably pointless, I just sent this letter to Speaker Boehner:

"Dear Speaker Boehner,

I'm fairly certain that this correspondence, like most other correspondence sent to our elected representatives in Washington, D.C., will be filtered by staff members who are charged with reducing the sheer volume of information you receive into manageable bites.  It is my hope that my message will resonate with your staff members as well as yourself.

What I have to say is not unusual for those of us on the outside looking in.  To say that we, as American citizens, are concerned with the state of our Republic would be an understatement.  We watch in horror as the very fabric of our society is being ripped apart by special interest groups like immigration advocates or representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood.  We watch as hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants spit on our good nature and refuse to contribute to our society in a meaningful way, choosing instead to build communities apart instead of assimilate themselves with our culture.  We watch as religious groups take over our public streets in calls to prayer, or demand use of their religious laws en lieu of our own just laws, showing their disdain for our Constitution.

As we watch this never-ending assault on our way of life, we are also painfully aware that our elected officials are slaves to this new world order.  That they fear to speak out lest they jeopardize their jobs, like tens of millions of Americans who have been labelled racist because they disagree with the direction this country is going in.  We helplessly watch as our heroic military is being dismantled right in front of our very eyes, all the while our enemies increase their military capabilities as we speak.  Mr. Speaker, do you not see this as lunacy?  When will it stop?

We are in dire need of leadership.  You are the person that can provide that leadership, if you only would.  We are not asking for the world, only that our government protects our liberty through justice.  Not the kind of justice being pushed by this administration.  Social justice is a myth perpetrated and propagated by those who would enslave us.  Why will you not expose them, even at your own peril?  This is a time for self-less service.  I beseech you to strive for true justice.  Do not allow members of the Black Panther Party to intimidate voters at the polls.  Do not allow agents of our government to violate the Constitution, or spit on the very laws that provide equity and equality to all Americans, whether they ask it or not.

We The People are behind you, Mr. Speaker.  We will not fail you if you are righteous.  What will your legacy be?"

I am afraid, however, that it is already too late.

Who of us has any power to do the necessary armtwisting to convince Mr. Boehner to get back on the right path? That is, of course, if he is really as corrupt as the above article indicates. I had actually some hope that his being Speaker meant that he actually had the power to do the right thing without being called out. Silly me, I just sort of hoped there was yet an American backbone still in place.

I hope Boehner doesn't sell out the American people and the family of Brian Terry. The whole thing stinks and there is probably some truth to these reports.  I was hopeful Boehner would do right by us but have since lost faith in him.

LoneStarWatchdog blog is reporting the following:

"Congressman John Boehner, the House Speaker better known for displays of weeping than of courage, is reportedly cutting a deal with Eric Holder which would provide a 'mutually satisfactory' outcome in Barack Obama’s criminal, gun running endeavor Operation Fast and Furious." -- Doug Book, Western Center for Journalism

But that's not all! Just wait until you hear just how Mr. Boehner defines a "mutually satisfactory" outcome.  According to inside reports, the Obama Regime (and Eric Holder)  will be given a get out of jail free card in exchange for... well... actually...  NOTHING...  NADA... ZILCH... SCRATCH.

Mike Vanderboegh with Sipsey Street Irregulars explains the particulars of "the deal" as follows:  Boehner will "accept the scalps" of a number of insignificant Department of Justice officials "and Holder will survive -- looking like a 'leader' for offering them up" so Boehner and company can "chalk one in the 'win' column for oversight and holding people accountable."

Book adds: "The weepy Speaker will officially let the most corrupt Department of Justice head in the nation’s history off the hook for complicity in the Regime’s murderous scheme to savage the 2nd Amendment rights of the American people" and "John Boehner will be pleased to sell them out in order to lay claim to the pathetically comic mantle of a tough-minded Republican.... That is, with the approval of the White House, of course."

And there you have it... the fix is in... yet another dog-and-pony show... yet another Boehner smoke-and-mirrors backroom deal whereby the corrupt Obama Regime gets away with crimes against the American people, Boehner gets to delude himself into believing he's won something, and the American people get nothing in return.

Yes, an insanely rotten deal is in the works and we're not about to let Boehner and company get away with it! It's up to patriotic Americans to put a stop to the insanity, right here and right now.

"If We Don’t Get To The Bottom Of This... There Is Only One Alternative That Congress Has, And It’s Called Impeachment.” -- Congressman James Sensenbrenner

Apparently, Sensenbrenner neglected to check with Boehner before making that statement as it would appear that Boehner has been shamelessly angling all along to provide ANOTHER ALTERNATIVE: Milk the Fast and Furious scandal for what it's worth politically and quietly work behind the scenes WITH THE CULPRITS to make it go away BEFORE the American people are any the wiser.

Don't take our word for it. Matthew Boyle, a reporter with The Daily Caller, and one of the young turks who has diligently covered this story, reports "that Boehner and his staff have slowed the probe" from the very beginning.

And Book tells us that it was Boehner who "prevented Darrell Issa filing a charge of perjury against Holder even after documents proved the Attorney General’s May 4th House testimony concerning the date of his first 'acquaintance' with Fast and Furious to be an outright lie."

Well sorry, Mr. Boehner... you're busted... and your little political stunt isn't going to work!

And if you're asking what's motivating Boehner and some of our Republican leaders... do you even need to ask?

It's much easier to PRETEND to do the right thing in Washington than to muster up the courage to ACTUALLY do the right thing. That's how senior Republicans define business-as-usual in Washington.

Why pursue justice for the American people when you can use the criminal shenanigans of the Obama Regime to trick the American people into voting you back into office and giving you even more political power?

Puff, pontificate, put on a show and throw a little red meat to the base, but for goodness sakes, don't actually do anything.

That attitude needs to change and you can change it right here and right now.  Mr. Boehner and our so-called Republican leaders need to know that their face-saving shenanigans simply aren't going to work.

They need to know that the American people are insulted by these dog-and-pony shows and they need to know that the American people will NOT grant them the political power that they so cherish if they continue on their present course and REFUSE to do what is required.

The American people want the truth. The American people want to know what Eric Holder and Barack Obama knew and when they knew it and the American people want heads to roll!

Join us and tell these so-called "leaders" that they must either give the American people what they want, or suffer the potentially career-ending political consequences for their refusal!

And know one thing... when they know the jig is up... they'll straighten up and fly right. To be honest, I do not think so. Caught or not. They will still continue in their corruption until they are removed from power.
