RINO Boehner Pushing Obamatrade, but Has He Read It?

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday said he’s hopeful the House will pass legislation this month granting President Obama fast-track trade powers, but said the votes aren’t there yet . . .

Boehner acknowledged some in his party are opposing the fast-track legislation, known as Trade Promotion Authority or TPA, simply because they don’t trust Obama.

But the Speaker added: “This is not about the president; frankly, it’s about the country. It’s why I’ve worked with the president on a number of trade agreements over the course of his tenure and my tenure as Speaker,” including deals with Panama and South Korea.

Last month, the Senate passed TPA on a 62 to 37 vote. But the bill is facing a steeper climb in the House, where most Democrats are fiercely opposed. The bill would allow Obama to send to Congress the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a major trade deal among 12 Pacific Rim nations, for an up-or-down vote. Under the fast-track rules, lawmakers would not be able to amend the trade deal . . .

Later Wednesday, Boehner and his entire leadership team hosted a 20-minute pep rally in the basement of the Capitol with more than 200 pro-trade allies, including representatives from trade associations, the agriculture and shipping industries, and manufacturers.

For those who would like to see what part of it reads....

https://wikileaks.org/tpp-investment/press.html

He doesn't need to know what's in it.  All he is..........is the organ grinder's side-kick, and does as he is instructed.

When does this traitor come up for relection??

I DO NOT KNOW BUT GET RID OF HIM.  I KNOW MANY TRY; GOHMERT; JORDAN MANY WANT THEIR COMMITTEE POSTS THEY ARE SO CHICKEN LIVERED JELLY FISH IDIOTS SPINELESS MORONS 

Hey boehner is a rhino and has stabbed every republican in the back that gave him the house in 2010 and more in 2014 so i would expect anything less.  It has been said that there is a thought that obama has something on him and there boehner will do what ever the obama wants. I just hope that every one gets together in 2016 and get him out of the house even if it means supporting a demonstrate in his house race. He and mc connell need to both go, mc connell i am not worried about because in 2016 the people that gave him the senate will stay home and he will be the minority again and will be until he retires.  He has also stabbed all the people that gave him the senate.

So tired of then backing something that they have not read.  Boehner backs it  it must be bad.  I am NOT for it.

Boehner is as trustworthy as Obama.

Anything cloaked in that much secrecy is suspect and should be brought out into the open for all to see. Nothing short of that should allow it to move anywhere much less forward!

Who to hell is he Bull Shitt---. He knows many of the things in it and if one checks his bank account the real reason will appear.  I just found out that, as many of you already know, there were about 6 or 7 Senators who were against this bill.  How many of you were aware that there was 1.2 Million dollars that was handed out to Senators for the passage of this bill, also note those 6 or 7 Democrat Senators also received a nice check, was it for changing their votes?  Now, lets get back to Boehner, that bastar- has probably received a nice check and we wont find out until this bill is passed. I just hope and pray that many of you have contacted your Congressional Representative and let him/her know you are watching his vote. 

Lets get to one thing I know that is buried within this bill is a backdoor way to immigration. Within the bill is a provision call "Trade Promotion Authority", which kicks in within six months of its passage.  This will allow all of those companies who are promoting the bill to bring in immigrants under H1B visa status.  We have many young college graduates that could fill these positions, the problem with that is the pay structure.  Folks, Boehner just as that of the past 6 years have shafted all of the conservatives as well as liberals, sad fact all Americans.  Under many governments he would be considered a traitor and shot.  McConnell has been a party to all of this. This has nothing to do with that the Republican Party has stood for business growth, this had everthing to do with money changing hands, their hands. 

Bhooner is a traitor to the America. 

Boehner is a trader to the country by letting Obama have this power.

They have to pass it so he can find out what's in it !

ALERT ALERT

YUP: President Trump Signs Great And Beautiful Trump Border Wall During Tour In San Diego

Embedded video

President Donald Trump visited the San Diego border on Wednesday to show off a newly constructed portion of the wall after a fundraising trip in California.

“It’s an amazing project,” Trump said, pointing to the 30-foot high barrier constructed with steel and concrete, noting that it also went six feet underground.

“If you think you’re going to cut it with a blow torch, that doesn’t work, because you hit the concrete, and then if you think you’re going to go through the concrete, that doesn’t work because we have very powerful rebar inside,” Trump said.

The president traveled via motorcade after a fundraiser to Otay Mesa, a community outside San Diego on the United States -Mexico border to review the latest constructed physical barrier.

He pointed out the new wall structure to the press, which was 24 miles of primary and secondary wall at the border.

“We have it covered underground, we have it covered overground,” Trump said.

The president was joined by acting Department of Homeland security Kevin McAllen and several other border security officials.

He said that over 44,000 bollard panels had been set up for the wall, which was then filled with concrete and rebar.

Trump admitted that he envisioned a solid concrete wall when he campaigned for president, but he was told by border officials that they preferred a wall constructed by concrete-filled bollards so they could see through it.

“It’s hardened concrete, very powerful concrete,” Trump said, pointing to the structure.

He added that the steel wall was designed to retain heat, making it harder to climb, plus having an anti-climbing system at the top.

“You can fry an egg on that wall,” he said. The president also acknowledged to reporters that he wanted the wall to be painted black and have spikes but said it was cheaper to let it remain naturally rust-colored.

“We can paint it later,” he said.

The president discussed his growing understanding of border barriers, noting that the Southern border would not need much more than 500 miles of wall to secure the border. He cited the existence of natural mountain and river barriers that prevented criminals from crossing. He did not rule out building additional barriers in the future but said it would depend on whether it was needed.

One border patrol agent spoke about the importance of the border wall to all of the agents, thanking the president for pushing forward on construction.

Trump said he met with Border Patrol prior to constructing the wall, picking the most effective structures to protect the border.

One border security official scoffed at the idea that the wall was a “vanity” project for the president.

“There’s a false narrative out there that this wall is the president’s vanity wall,” he said. “I’m here to tell you right now that that is false.”

He thanked Trump for listening to border patrol agents during the planning and construction process.

“You listened to the agents and you gave them exactly what they asked for,” he said.

One official with Trump confirmed that the structure was funded with regular Congressional appropriations in the FY 2017 and FY 2018 and that that the new wall replaced an inferior structure.

Trump said that he still considered the situation on the border a national emergency, but as more wall went up he could withdraw military forces.

“I hope you’re impressed,” he told reporters as he took questions about the project.

One worker told Trump of a tradition of workers signing the wall if they worked on the wall.

“I’ll sign it,” Trump said, and went to the wall and signed the steel barrier with a marker before encouraging other officials present to do the same.
