Boehner To Sue Obama

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Now that Eric Cantor is history, crushed by an unexpected Tea Party "David" (literally and metaphorically) as the US population finally begins to say no to an artifical "two-party" system which is quite united in only serving its Wall Street masters, it is time for that other republican, none other than the consummate folding lawn chair John Boehner, to scramble fearing for his own political career. And since the only way the GOP knows to challenge the implosion of the US republic is by making loud noises and providing hours of hollow theatrical entertainment, here comes Boehner with the biggest soap opera he could muster: moments ago the speaker announced he plans to sue Obama "on behalf of the House over his frequent use of executive actions that Republicans believe are beyond his authority."

Of course, if the republicans wants to make a real statement they should just impeached Obama. However, remember: this is only theater. Boehner confirmed as much. According to The Hill, "during his weekly Capitol press conference, the Speaker accused the president of violating his oath of office by not “faithfully executing the laws of our country.” But Boehner said the lawsuit would not lead to an attempt to remove Obama from office. "This is not about impeachment,” Boehner said. “This is about his faithfully executing the laws of our country.

Oh, so it is not about impeachment: so is it only about generating the brownie populist points that go alongside such "tremendous bravery" as engaging in a clearly hollow straight to TV spectacle?

More on this farce from Fox:

The speaker alleged that the president not only has ignored the law but "brags about it," decrying what he described as "arrogance and incompetence."

 

Boehner had been weighing such a lawsuit in recent days, over concerns that Obama exceeded his constitutional authority with executive actions. Republicans have voiced frustration with Obama's second-term "pen and phone" strategy of pursuing policy changes without Congress -- particularly environmental rules via the Environmental Protection Agency. Republicans also complained about numerous unilateral changes to the implementation of ObamaCare.

 

The lawsuit has not yet been filed. But asked Wednesday whether he intended to proceed, Boehner said: "I am."

Which means no: reference - all those previous debt ceiling battles where the speaker was just as "resolute."

"My view is the president has not faithfully executed the laws," he said. "What we have seen clearly over the last five years is an effort to erode the power of the Legislative Branch."

 

The decision to sue still would have to be formally approved by a group of House leaders. Presuming that step is cleared, the suit is expected to be filed in a few weeks.

 

The plaintiff would be the House of Representatives.

Well, at least the House would finally be busy "doing" something. For everything else there is, as Chuck Schumer made so very clear once and for all, the Mr. Chairmanwoman, who continues to "get to work" every single day, making America's very rich, richer.

Dear Mr. Boehner,

You may have someone represent you during any part of the examination.

You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need.
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street,
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed.
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight,
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking.

And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.
You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.

You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder.
You know it's going to get harder, and harder, and harder as you
get older.
And in the end you'll pack up and fly down south,
Hide your head in the sand,
Just another sad old man,
All alone and dying of cancer.

Even IF the 'R-Team' made "a show of something supporting...different"  They aren't going to actually DO anything, because not only is 'R-Team' NOT "different"; 'R-Team' is just a division of the same Team that 'D-Team' is also a division of...

At this point, DCRB, it's so little, so late it doesn't matter.  The state won.  We lost.  Rs, Ds, it doesn't matter.  The Tea Party upset of Cantor was a fluke, as I feared.  Rerun the same thing in Mississippi a week later and what happened?  The establishment puke enlisted the help of BLACK DEMOCRATIC voters to win the Republican primary away from his Tea Party opponent (who would have otherwise stomped him).

If that's not a clear-cut indication of what EITHER party will do to hold onto power, I don't know what would ever convince people.

I used to think the people who said "both sides are the same, this is all just for show" were a little extreme.  Not any more.  They're absolutely right.  Those bastards will never leave on their own.  You'll never vote them out (because they have all the money and own the election process).  That only leaves one option.  An option nobody in the US is anywhere close to considering at this point.

"That only leaves one option.  An option nobody in the US is anywhere close to considering at this point."

I'm not sure that it leaves only one option; but, the range of options are certainly limited to those outside the conventional political process.


I have been considering the options left for quite some time.  Neither am I alone in such deliberations.

It also sounds like You are having some rather unconventional thoughts yourself at this point.

Good.  

Now it might be possible for Us to begin reasoned discussion about proceeding to amend this situation without the constant childish devolution into whining about sanctity of the so-called legitimate democratic process.

Cantor got voted out.

The great irony could turn out to be for the Tea Party members who just lost in Mississippi, to return the favor and vote for the democrat in the fall.

It isn't just theater. Suing the President of the United States is not a matter that can be taken lightly. This thing could easily grow beyond Boehner's original intentions, especially if he fails to deliver any results. Whether Boehner likes it or not, he might have just sown the seeds of a real populist revolt. It will be interesting to see what happens next.

One step closer to rule-by-decree.  The Palpatine analogy I think is apt: this will be the Congress turning over legislative power to the president.  That's where this is going, and a supreme court ruling will make it official.

What a fucking joke. The most lawless President in American History and this orange two faced faggot doesn't even have the balls to write up Articles of Impeachment. As if he doesn't have enough scandals to clearly implicate BO. Its like the scene from Team America where Hans says he will be very, very angry and write a letter telling the N. Korean's how angry they will be and then gets ripped apart by a shark. Boehner is such a fucking sell out. The epitome of a career politician. Fucking Pussy.

This is exactly right. BO is baiting the GOP... daring them to do anything because he knows Chuck Todd and Chris Mathews will blow the Prez then preach about how mean the GOP is for picking on this poor little black boy who just cares for the under class. 

Don't take the bait until his approval numbers are below 30%. Then the critical mass will wash this turd out of office. The trick is... the country has to survive that long.

I weep for the liberty of my country when I see at this early day of its successful experiment that corruption has been imputed to many members of the House of Representatives, and the rights of the people have been bartered for promises of office.

Andrew Jackson 1846

 

Corruption, embezzlement, fraud, these are all characteristics which exist everywhere. It is regrettably the way human nature functions, whether we like it or not. What successful economies do is keep it to a minimum. No one has ever eliminated any of that stuff.

Alan Greenspan 1987

Look, we know we screwed up when we were in the majority. We fell in love with power. We spent way too much money - especially on earmarks. There was too much corruption when we ran this place. We were guilty. And that's why we lost.

Eric Cantor 200?


And so it goes!

Nearly 200 years and counting.

Quite a spectacle alright.

Voting won't change anything. Either we all keep voting for the slightly lesser of two evils and at best delay the inevitable, or we stop playing the game and just be loud about it.

 

This system is FUBAR and going down. Even the non-absolute clown variety leftist/progressive is getting a little freaked out.

The planning is too obvious. These sociopaths create theater intentionally just for the perverse thrill of doing so.

 

Reminds me of my very first violent car crash:

15-20 seconds was timeless. First a surreal period of awakening, then an indefinable period of just being inside a chaos but numb.

 

Then a stillness in the long space of gazing upon the outcome.

 

Nothing was ever the same again.

But the media was working to impeach Nixon. One of the reasons Nixon's people did what they did and he subsequently attempted to cover it up was the long standing belief by Nixon that the media was out to get him...and they did, with his help of course.

Obama is the absolute negative of Nixon. He has the full faith and support of the media and goes about his impeachable behaviors because he rightly believes he will NEVER be held to account. Yes he is doing it for his agenda but also I believe he is doing it as an "in your face" body blow to all those who oppose him. It enrages his opposition to the point of irrationality, effectively marginalizing them as extreme, regardless of if they are saying it as it actually is. Without the media to reinforce the criticisms, all who stand against him are dangerous nut jobs. The republicans understand this, but their lack of courage will not advance their agendas. If, per chance they were to stand against Obama in a truly unified approach, they might have the ability to overcome the media indoctrination, but as every time its starts getting warm for them they bail like their hair is on fire. We know this from watching the many budget debates, Obamacare debates, immigration debates or just about anything that might actually advance a conservative agenda. As we have learned in all wars, pick your battles wisely and fight to win. Republicans don't know how to do either.

Boehner is obviously trying to save his own arse.  If Obama (and other presidents before him, perhaps to a lesser extent) has been doing this all along, why NOW?  Shouldn't this have become an issue and shouldn't he have raised holy hell when it happened the first time?

Even though we can see through this, the good news is that it means politicans are scared.  They are scared of the citizens.  Hopefully this fear spreads and the politicans now start doing their jobs. I hate to look a gift horse in the mouth.

No federal judge in his right mind will touch this one with a 10 foot pole. If a judge rules against the President, then what? How can a judge force the President to do something that the president refuses to do? The short answer is he can't - any more than the Supreme court could stop Andrew Jackson from moving the Indians almost 200 years ago.
