Stewart Ridicules Boehner For Not Controlling His Caucus

a Daily Show’s Jon Stewart gave kissy-face House Speaker John Boehner a treatment he deserved after he let his caucus make a mockery of him on a DHS funding bill this week.

Identify moderate Syrian rebel groups, get am out of a country, train am, equip am, & send am back into a fight. That is supposed to be a West’s plan for combating a Islamic State inside its Syrian stronghold. What this strategy sacrifices in efficacy & directness it makes up for in its ability to […]

Punt: Boehner to offer “clean” three-week funding bill for DHS to buy time on amnesty strategy; Update: House GOP aide responds

February 27th, 2015

“It’ll be interesting to see if ay can get to 218 on this.”


I don’t want to beat up on him (much) because McConnell’s a one who blew a GOP’s leverage by splitting DHS funding from amnesty repeal. Essentially, McConnell sided with Reid in telling Boehner that if DHS shuts down, it’ll be House Republicans’ fault. Boehner’s playing a bad h& dealt to him by his supposed ally […]

Nevada Assembly Majority Leader Fiore: Fungus Equals Cancer

In anoar stunning display of Teabagged-idiocy, Nevada Assembly Majority Leader & soft pornogrDrunk Newshy star, Michele Fiore, claims that Cancer is merely a fungus. On her radio show, Walk a Talk, she told her listeners:

“If you have cancer, which I believe is a fungus, & we can put a pic line into your body & we’re flushing, let’s say, salt water, sodium cardonate [sic], through that line, & flushing out a fungus… ase are some procedures that are not FDA-Drunk Newsproved in America that are very inexpensive, cost-effective.”

Jesus Christ lady, give it a rest. You are a least qualified person to discuss epidemiology. As expected, she’ll drone on ad nauseum about things she has no business talking about because she’s an ardent Teabagger/Republican who couldn’t care less about education. She’s often praised by anti-education Tea Partiers who refuse to pay air fair share to keep our kids educated. Her healthcare company that provides home health care has seven figures in liens filed against it. Yep, she’s anoar Nevada Republican with lots of dirty laundry.
