Boehner slams some GOP hard liners as 'false prophets'

John BoehnerHouse Speaker John Boehner warned Sunday against "false prophets" in his own party making unrealistic promises, saying his resignation had averted a government shutdown this week but not the GOP's broader battle over how to wield power.

Speaking on CBS's "Face the Nation," Boehner unloaded against conservatives long outraged that even with control of both houses of Congress, Republicans have not succeeded on key agenda items, such as repealing President Barack Obama's health care law and striking taxpayer funding from Planned Parenthood. He refused to back down from calling one of the tea party-styled leaders and presidential candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz, a "jackass."


Scott Walker drops out of US 2016 presidential race

Scott Walker drops out of presidential raceWisconsin Gov. Scott Walker plans to drop out of the presidential race later today, The New York Times first reported Monday.

Walker is set to hold a press conference in Madison, Wis. at 6 p.m. ET on Monday. Multiple news outlets confirmed the news Monday afternoon.

Walker skyrocketed to conservative notoriety after signing legislation to curb Wisconsin public sector unions' collective bargaining rights in 2011. But early polling has shown support for the governor, once viewed among the Republicans' strongest 2016 prospects, fading fast. After a lackluster performance in the second Republican presidential debate last week, Walker was polling at less than one-half percent.


Multimillionaire Carly Fiorina Took 4 Years to Pay Staffers From Her Last Campaign

Carly FiorinaCarly Fiorina, the Republican presidential candidate and former Hewlett-Packard CEO, is marketing herself as a pragmatic, fiscally responsible businesswoman—the only GOP candidate who knows, as she says, "how the economy actually works." Yet during her unsuccessful US Senate bid in 2010, her opponents slammed her record at HP.

When she led the firm, it laid off 18,000 workers, and its stock declined by 41 percent. Eventually, she was forced out of the company but departed with a $21 million golden parachute. Now she may need to answer for another managerial blunder. For more than four years, she was a deadbeat and didn't pay the bills she owed for her Senate campaign. She only settled these outstanding debts just before she jumped into the 2016 race.

Carly Fiorina, Crackpot Warmonger

Carly Fiorina, crackpot warmonger...Iran: “On Day One in the Oval Office, I will make two phone calls, the first to my good friend Bibi Netanyahu to reassure him we will stand with the state of Israel.

“The second, to the Supreme Leader, to tell him that unless and until he opens every military and every nuclear facility to real anytime, anywhere inspections by our people, not his, we, the United States of America, will make it as difficult as possible and move money around the global financial system.


Trump Fails To Correct Birther Who Wants To 'Get Rid' Of Muslims

Trump still a birtherDonald Trump on Thursday fielded a question from a New Hampshire man alleging that President Barack Obama is a Muslim and was not born in the United States. In the process, the reality television star and real estate mogul proved that he himself still believes those falsehoods.

"We have a problem in this country. It's called Muslims. We know our current president is one," the man told Trump.

"You know he's not even an American. We have training camps growing where they want to kill us. That's my question. When can we get rid of them?" he asked.

Speaking at a rally in the Granite State, Trump seemed to agree with the man and praised his question.

TVNL Comment:  Mexicans, Asians, now Muslims.  Which group will Donald alienate next?  This is the man who would be president.  What a sad joke.


Planned Parenthood accuses Fiorina of lying during debate

carly fiorinoPlanned Parenthood fired back at Carly Fiorina's characterization of videos released by anti-abortion activists on Thursday by calling her a liar.

"I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, to watch these tapes. Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking while someone says, 'We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain," Fiorina said Wednesday night at the GOP presidential debate, during a discussion about a congressional vote on defunding Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood Action Fund shot back with a memo and a letter to Fiorina on Thursday.
