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 !

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
