Even golfing can be a tearjerker of a subject for Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who’s known for frequently dispensing waterworks.

“I wanted to make sure that every kid had the same chance I did — an opportunity,” Boehner, with tears filling his eyes, says in a promotional spot for The Golf Channel show, “Feherty.”

Another clip from the program, which airs Aug. 3., shows Boehner telling host David Feherty about a photo of him and some former colleagues that sits in his office, saying, “The three of us are talking about how easily we turn to tears.”
Boehner — who’s gotten misty-eyed at everything from State of the Union addresses to statue unveilings — said in a 2010 interview that he’s a “pretty emotional guy.”

Republicans Insist They’re Tackling ‘The People’s Priorities,’ But Illegal Immigration Is Not on the List

(CNSNews.com) – “Here in the House, the people’s priorities continue to be our priorities,” House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told a news conference on Wednesday — one day after the father of Kate Steinle, a murdered San Francisco woman, urged Congress to pass legisation that would take felonious illegal aliens off America’s streets for good.

“We feel if Kate’s Law saves one daughter, one son, a mother, a father, Kate’s death won’t be in vain,” Jim Stienle told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

But on Wednesay, Boehner listed “the people’s priorities” as entitlement reform; human trafficking; veterans’ health care; free trade, EPA regulations; the National Defense Authorization Bill; and the Iran nuclear deal.

Other Republican leaders appearing with Boehner talked about the 25th anniversary of Americans with Disabilities Act; education legislation; homeland security and the attack on Marines in Chattanooga.

Completely missing from the list of “the people’s priorities” was the issue of illegal immigration and sanctuary cities.

It was same thing Tuesday, when Senate Republican leaders held their own news conference on Capitol Hill to announce they have reached agreement with Democrats on a six-year highway funding bill.

Some of those senators also mentioned the Iran nuclear agreement, but as was the case Wednesday with House leaders, no one mentioned illegal immigration until the very end of the news conference, when a reporter asked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, “Does does the Senate need to take action on sanctuary cities?”

“Yeah. On the timing of that, I couldn’t tell you right now,” McConnell replied. He then asked Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) to comment on Tuesday’s Judiciary Committee hearing — the one at which Jim Steinle testified.

Cornyn mentioned the “heartbreaking” stories told by “family after family from all sorts of background, races, ethnicities and walks of life who have been victimized by criminals who have flouted our laws and committed these crimes, many of them against minoirities as well.”

Cornyn said he expects legislation to be introducted and hearings to be held: “My hope is we’ll be in a position to vote a bill out of the Judiciary Committee and present it to the majority leader for his considereation in due course.”

While Republican leaders pursue the people’s priorities, Donald Trump has announced plans to visit the Texas-Mexico border on Thursday.

He’s going to Laredo, the Associated Press reported, where he will hold a news conference and meet with members of a  union that represents border control agents. He also plans to address the law enforcement community.

Trump’s campaign has generated headlines since it began, when he warned that Mexico wasn’t sending its best citizens to the United States.

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best,” he said last month when he announced his candidacy. “They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists, and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.”

Although he’s been pilloried and boycotted ever since, Trump has not backed down, and one of the parents who testified at Tuesday’s Judiciary Committee hearing said she appreciates that:

Laura Wilkerson’s son was murdered several years ago by a so-called “Dreamer,” an illegal alien brought to this country as a child.

“I say that America has enough criminals of its own, and we don’t need any other countries’,” Wilkerson told “The Kelly File” Tuesday night.

Host Megyn Kelly then asked Wilkerson about Donald Trump:

“I don’t know Donald Trump. I don’t know what he stands for actually, but I know it felt great to hear him speak the truth. He spoke from — he spoke the truth. It felt like we were being heard. It was a relief to me. He said what he wants to say and doesn’t backtrack on it. What he said had truth in it. So it did feel like finally somebody is hearing and listening.”

“Do you believe there is apathy on this still in Washington?” Kelly asked Wilkerson.

“Oh yes. There is no question about it — until it happens to you, you don’t know the pain, and it’s not going to happen until somebody makes a move. It’s a shame. Kate Steinle that died last week in San Francisco was just another one on top of it. There will be many today, many tomorrow, many the next days, until somebody decides it’s enough.”

UPDATE: Obama Orders To Be Flown At Half-Staff After Criticism… *(TOO LATE FOR OBAMA NOW)*

President Obama has ordered flags at the White House and other public buildings to fly at half-staff after mounting criticism over the delay in honoring five armed forces members killed last week by a gunman.

Obama’s proclamation calls for the flags to remain at half-mast through Saturday “as a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on July 16.”

“Our thoughts and prayers as a Nation are with the service members killed last week in Chattanooga. We honor their service. We offer our gratitude to the police officers and first responders who stopped the rampage and saved lives,” Obama said in a presidential proclamation released Tuesday.

“We draw strength from yet another American community that has come together with an unmistakable message to those who would try to do us harm: We do not give into fear. You cannot divide us. And you will not change our way of life.”

Obama announced his decision hours after Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) ordered flags at the U.S. Capitol to be flown at half-staff.

Ahead of Obama’s decision, conservatives lined up to pan the president for failing to lower the flag. They noted that various governors around the country have done so and that the White House had lowered its flag after other mass shootings.

Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), the chairman of the House Armed Service Committee, issued a statement earlier Tuesday asking Obama to do the “right thing” by lowering the flag. And Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.), a veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, panned Obama as well.

“Five service members were killed on American soil, and the idea that the Commander in Chief is so far unwilling to lower flags in their honor is unconscionable,” he said.

“The flag and all it represents is sacred to our military, and the President must know that lowering the flag is a signal of honor and respect.  The President should make this call immediately.”

Marcus Luttrell, a retired Navy SEAL whose story became the bestselling book Lone Survivor and a movie starring Mark Wahlberg, also took to Facebook on Monday night to call on the president to lower the flag.

Wonder Why So Many People Support Donald Trump? Here’s Why

Screen Shot 2015-07-13 at 9.48.42 AM

I hear a lot of people question why so many people are supporting Donald Trump.  Even people who have really never cared for him.  Really, there is no mystery here.  Conservative voters are tired of voting for candidates that promise them the Earth, the Moon and the stars above, but quickly walk back their words when they feel a little heat and fail to follow through should they be elected.  Remember how many candidates like Mia Love promised voters that they would vote against John Boehner should they win their election, just to immediately go back on their word and vote for him?  And need I even go into why I hate Boehner and McConnell?

This is why Trump is getting people to pay 100 dollars for scalped tickets that he gave away for free.  They want to hear someone speak from their heart and express their feelings and he makes them believe he will do as he says because he refuses to back down from the thought police, liberals or the p^**y republicans wringing their hands over his correct assertion that illegals commit a large number of heinous crimes.

The 2014 election was supposed to be about illegal immigration and wide open borders.  We did our part and came out in large numbers and voted republican because we believed that once they controlled both the House and the Senate, they would finally stand up to Obama and his illegal policies.  Instead, it’s been a race to see who can give in to Obama the quickest.

Boehner:  I can capitulate in just five words.

McConnell: Well, I can give in in just four.

Obama:  I own you all.

McConnell:  Those were the four words.  I surrender.

Boehner:  Rats!!

Trump has gone into some of the most hostile settings possible and has not given an inch and liberals hate that.  They are used to bullying republicans into submission.  Let’s face it, the guy is a billionaire and is used to getting his way and has learned to stand up against those in business who are just looking to get over.  The press and liberal politicians are amateurs in comparison.
