The Ambassador Who Came In From the Cold
Yahoo News - 5 days
In February of 2015, Israel’s ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer, was going through a rough period. Amid a contentious election in Israel, the Obama administration accused him of conspiring with Republican leaders on Capitol Hill to arrange an invitation for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to deliver a controversial speech on Obama’s diplomatic outreach to Iran before both houses of Congress, only 14 days before Israelis were set to go to the polls. Administration officials claimed that Dermer knew for two weeks that then-Speaker of the House John Boehner had invited Netanyahu to give a speech on this issue, yet didn’t share the information with anyone in the administration, leading to a situation in which they learned about it from the media. Democratic members of Congress lined up to boycott Netanyahu’s speech, and the Israeli opposition, capitalizing on the mess to improve its election prospects, blamed Dermer and Netanyahu for damaging the U.S.-Israel relationship ...

Twitter is totally creeped out by Paul Ryan's logo
Yahoo News - about 1 month
Note to the House GOP: If people automatically associate your speaker's logo with the Nazi party, even though it resembles a symbol used for years by that office, it might be time for a regroup. On Friday, Twitter user @EricVespe noticed Paul Ryan's new logo on speaker.gov, which shows an eagle with spread wings, resembles the emblem of the Nazi party. While the resemblance is no doubt unintentional — and almost certainly modeled after the official speaker logo — it's also noticeable. And newly red. SEE ALSO: Mr. No Fun Paul Ryan shuts down kid who tries to dab To be fair, the seal of the speaker, the position to which Ryan has just been reelected, also has an eagle with spread wings atop a globe. (We contacted Ryan's office for more but had not heard back at time of publish.) The Wayback Machine internet archive shows that in 2015, when John Boehner was speaker, speaker.gov had a logo more similar to the original, while in 2010, Nancy Pelosi only used an image of the capitol and the U ...

Silence From Trump Tower On Buy America
Huffington Post - 2 months
The time is now for Donald Trump to take a stand in support of American workers by calling on Republican leadership in Congress to support strong Buy America requirements in the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA), also known as the Water Infrastructure Improvements Act (WIIN).  Just one week ago in Cincinnati, President-elect Trump said his infrastructure plan would follow two simple rules: “Buy American and hire American.” I support that position, but unfortunately the Republican establishment in Washington didn’t hear him. They have removed my Buy America standard from water infrastructure legislation and Trump Tower has since remained silent. I believe that the iron and steel used in water infrastructure projects should be made in America and that taxpayer dollars should go to support American jobs and manufacturers, not be spent on Chinese or Russian iron and steel. My provision to require this was included in a version of the water infrastructure legislation that pa ...

Donald Trump's Deportation Plan Could Devastate The U.S. Farm Industry
Huffington Post - 3 months
President-elect Donald Trump’s victory has largely been painted as the result of small-town America rejecting urban-elite America, but at least one faction of the nation’s rural communities aren’t particularly hopeful about the forthcoming administration. To some in the agriculture industry, Trump’s pledge to deport or imprison up to 3 million undocumented immigrants who are currently living in the U.S. and “have criminal records” — a campaign promise he reiterated on “60 Minutes” on Sunday — could spell disaster for the farming workforce, which relies heavily on immigrant labor. The Labor Department estimates that about half of the nation’s 2.5 million farmworkers are undocumented. It’s unclear whether these laborers would be included in Trump’s mass deportation plan. The agricultural industry has said repeatedly that domestic workers show no interest in doing the jobs that immigrants and migrants do.  That uncertainty is already bothering many of these workers, according t ...

Think For Yourself
Huffington Post - 4 months
I am writing a novel about the implosion of America. I've been working on it for some time now. My husband asked recently whether I would finish it before I die. I responded, "I hope I finish it before it happens!" I call my book a cautionary tale. I caution readers that if we don't learn to work together for the good of our nation, we could lose it. The Kjoller letter (Herald-Zeitung, 10-21-16) is a prime example of the kind of blinding hatred that could bring our freedom and our representative-democracy down. The writer repeats the most hateful things he has read and heard -- but gives no real facts to back up his statements. If we are to keep our nation safe and free we cannot afford to listen to an angry person's diatribe and blindly follow his lead. If we are to keep our nation safe and free we must research history ourselves--not right-wing, left-wing, sexist, racist, or fascist propaganda--to learn what has happened in the past. Only then can we help chart a be ...

Remember How Republicans Like Trump Said Minimum Wage Increases Hurt The Economy And Cost Jobs?
Huffington Post - 5 months
Right-wing Republicans like to make grand pronouncements about how enacting this or that progressive policy will bring doom and destruction. The 1993 budget deal passed without a single Republican vote, and Newt Gingrich said it would “kill the current recovery and put us back in a recession.” Other GOPers made similar predictions. In fact, Bill Clinton’s presidency saw the strongest economy in decades, and the federal budget ran a net surplus of $63 billion during his eight years in office. Obamacare? Same thing. On January 6, 2011, then-Speaker John Boehner said the law “will ruin our economy” and described it as “job-killing” seven times during a 14-minute tirade. That didn’t happen either. We’ve created 15 million private sector jobs since Obamacare became law. This brings us to the minimum wage. When asked, Donald Trump said: “I would not raise the minimum [wage],” and added, for good measure that in America “wages [are] too high.” In clarifying his remarks (i.e., lying an ...

Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of John Boehner
    LATE_ADULTHOOD
  • 2016
    Age 66
    In September 2016, Squire Patton Boggs, the third-largest lobbying firm in the U.S., announced that Boehner would join their firm.
    More Details Hide Details Also, Boehner will become a board member of Reynolds American, the second biggest tobacco firm in the U.S., for an estimated annual salary of $400,000. Boehner was born in Reading, Ohio, the son of Mary Anne (née Hall; 1926-1998) and Earl Henry Boehner (1925-1990), the second of twelve children. His father was of German descent and his mother had German and Irish ancestry. He grew up in modest circumstances, having shared one bathroom with his eleven siblings in a two-bedroom house in Cincinnati. He started working at his family's bar at age 8, a business founded by their grandfather Andy Boehner in 1938. He has lived in Southwest Ohio his entire life.
    Boehner made headlines in April 2016 when he referred to Republican Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz as "Lucifer in the flesh" in an interview at Stanford University.
    More Details Hide Details On May 12, after Donald Trump became the presumptive Republican nominee, Boehner's support for him became public, though he distanced himself on several policies and expressed satisfaction with Cruz not securing the nomination: "Thank God the guy from Texas didn't win." In reporting his pending retirement, Politico summarized his Speakership: Paul Kane in the Washington Post emphasizes how none of the "big deals" he sought were ever reached: Furthermore, Kane argues, Boehner's persona alienated conservative Republicans who demanded more vigorous attacks on Obama and instead perceived, "a country club Republican who loved to play 18 holes of golf and drink merlot afterward while cutting deals. In an era of shouting and confrontation, on talk radio or cable TV, Boehner’s easygoing style did not fit."
  • 2015
    Age 65
    In 2015, Boehner supported the Saudi Arabian-led intervention in Yemen, saying: "I applaud the Saudis for taking this action to protect their homeland and to protect their own neighborhood."
    More Details Hide Details On September 18, 2008, Congressman Boehner attended a closed meeting with congressional leaders, then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, and was urged to craft legislation to help financially troubled banks. That same day (trade effective the next day), Congressman Boehner cashed out of an equity mutual fund. On October 3, 2008 Boehner voted in favor of the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), believing that the enumerated powers grant Congress the authority to "purchase assets and equity from financial institutions in order to strengthen its financial sector." Boehner has been highly critical of several initiatives by the Democratic Congress and President Barack Obama, including the "cap and trade" plan that Boehner says would hurt job growth in his congressional district and elsewhere. He opposed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and said that, if Republicans took control of the House of Representatives in the 2010 elections, they would do whatever it takes to stop the act. One option would be to defund the administrative aspect of the Act, not paying "one dime" to pay the salaries of the workers who would administer the plan. He also led an opposition to the 2009 stimulus and to Obama's first budget proposal, promoting instead an alternative economic recovery plan and a Republican budget (authored by Ranking Rep. Paul Ryan, R-WI). He has advocated for an across-the-board spending freeze, including entitlement programs.
    Boehner resigned from the House of Representatives in October 2015 due to opposition from within the Republican caucus.
    More Details Hide Details
    Boehner's resignation from Congress became official October 31, 2015, at 11:59 p.m.
    More Details Hide Details In June 1995, Boehner distributed campaign contributions from tobacco industry lobbyists on the House floor as House members were weighing how to vote on tobacco subsidies. In a 1996 documentary by PBS called The People and the Power Game, Boehner said "They asked me to give out a half dozen checks quickly before we got to the end of the month and I complied. And I did it on the House floor, which I regret. I should not have done. It's not a violation of the House rules, but it's a practice that‘s gone on here for a long time that we're trying to stop and I know I'll never do it again." Boehner eventually led the effort to change House rules and prohibit campaign contributions from being distributed on the House floor. A September 2010 New York Times story said Boehner was "Tightly Bound to Lobbyists" and "He maintains especially tight ties with a circle of lobbyists and former aides representing some of the nation’s biggest businesses, including Goldman Sachs, Google, Citigroup, R.J. Reynolds, MillerCoors and UPS."
    After announcing that Ryan had garnered a majority of votes on the House floor, Boehner officially passed off the Speaker's gavel to Ryan on October 29, 2015.
    More Details Hide Details
    On October 8, 2015, McCarthy abruptly announced he would not run for Speaker, citing that he felt he could not effectively lead a fractured Republican Caucus. After McCarthy's announcement, Boehner announced that would stay on as Speaker until a successor was chosen. After initially turning down requests from Republican leaders, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman and 2012 Republican Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan of Wisconsin announced he would run for Speaker and had received Boehner's blessing.
    More Details Hide Details In his final act as Speaker, Boehner presided over the election to succeed him.
    On September 25, 2015, Boehner announced that he would step down as Speaker and resign from Congress at the end of October 2015.
    More Details Hide Details Boehner's resignation took place after Pope Francis' address to Congress the day before, an event considered by Boehner personally as the highest point in his legislative career. Sources in his office indicated he was stepping aside in the face of increasing discord while trying to manage passage of a continuing resolution to fund the government. Conservative opposition to funding Planned Parenthood as part of the resolution, and stronger threats to Boehner's leadership on account of the controversy, prompted the abrupt announcement. Originally, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California had announced he would run for Speaker and was seen as the prohibitive favorite.
  • 2014
    Age 64
    Conservatives including Sarah Palin also criticized Boehner for not stopping the Cromnibus spending package in 2014 after being re-elected, stating "It stinks to high heaven."
    More Details Hide Details WND then launched a campaign to elect a new chairman which gained the support of 500,000 individual letters being sent to congress in protest against Boehner. In the end there were a total of 25 votes against Boehner, 29 were needed in order to choose a new speaker. Boehner responded by removing those who opposed him from influential committees. A profile in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review said, "On both sides of the aisle, Boehner earns praise for candor and an ability to listen." The Plain Dealer says Boehner "has perfected the art of disagreeing without being disagreeable." Boehner has been classified as a "hard-core conservative" by OnTheIssues. Although Boehner has a conservative voting record, when he was running for House leadership, religious conservatives in the GOP expressed that they were not satisfied with his positions. According to the Washington Post: "From illegal immigration to sanctions on China to an overhaul of the pension system, Boehner, as chairman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, took ardently pro-business positions that were contrary to those of many in his party. Religious conservatives – examining his voting record – see him as a policymaker driven by small-government economic concerns, not theirs."
    The third law firm selected finally filed the suit in November 2014, after Boehner criticized Obama's unilateral moves on immigration policy.
    More Details Hide Details
    In July 2014, Boehner moved forward on a lawsuit to force the President to impose penalties on companies who failed to provide health care coverage for their employees.
    More Details Hide Details Boehner had pressed for legislation to delay this mandate the previous year.
    Boehner appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on January 23, 2014.
    More Details Hide Details When asked by Leno if he would ever run for president, the Speaker said no, adding, "I like to play golf. I like to cut my own grass. I do drink red wine, I smoke cigarettes. And I'm not giving that up to be President of the United States."
  • 2013
    Age 63
    Boehner was narrowly re-elected as Speaker of the House on January 3, 2013 at the beginning of the 113th United States Congress.
    More Details Hide Details He received 220 votes, needing 214 to win.
  • 2011
    Age 61
    He received the gavel from outgoing Speaker Pelosi on Wednesday, January 5, 2011.
    More Details Hide Details He was the first Speaker from Ohio since fellow Republicans Nicholas Longworth (1925 to 1931) and J. Warren Keifer (1881 to 1883). He was also the first Speaker who has served both as majority and minority floor leader for his party since Texas Democrat Sam Rayburn. As Speaker, he was still the leader of the House Republicans. However, by tradition, he normally did not take part in debate, although he had the right to do so, and almost never voted from the floor. He was not a member of any House committees during his Speakership.
  • 2010
    Age 60
    November 17, 2010, Boehner was unanimously chosen by the House Republicans as their nominee for Speaker, all but assuring his formal election to the post when the new Congress convened with a Republican majority in January 2011.
    More Details Hide Details
    As Republican House Leader, Boehner is a Democratic target for criticism of Republican views and political positions. In July 2010, President Barack Obama began singling out Boehner for criticism during his speeches.

  • 2008
    Age 58
    According to the 2008 Congress.org Power Ranking, Boehner was the 6th most powerful congressman (preceded by Speaker Pelosi, Majority Leader Hoyer, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Sander M. Levin, Dean of the House John Dingell, and Appropriations Committee Chairman Dave Obey, all Democrats) and the most powerful Republican.
    More Details Hide Details As Minority Leader, Boehner served as an ex officio member of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. The Republicans won a majority in the House of Representatives during the 2010 midterm elections, with a net gain of 63 seats. During his solemn victory speech, Boehner broke into tears when talking about "economic freedom, individual liberty and personal responsibility I hold these values dear because I've lived them I've spent my whole life chasing the American Dream".
  • 2006
    Age 56
    On May 25, 2006, Boehner issued a statement defending his agenda and attacking his "Democrat friends" such as Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
    More Details Hide Details Boehner said regarding national security that voters "have a choice between a Republican Party that understands the stakes and is dedicated to victory, and a Democrat Party with a non-existent national security policy that sheepishly dismisses the challenges of a post-9/11 world and is all too willing to concede defeat on the battlefield in Iraq." Boehner is a signer of Americans for Tax Reform’s Taxpayer Protection Pledge. "I’m not qualified to debate the science over climate change," Boehner said at a press conference on May 29, 2014 at which he criticized proposed federal regulations on coal-fired power plants. In 2011, Boehner opposed the NATO-led military intervention in Libya.
    As such, he was the Republican nominee for Speaker in 2006 and 2008, losing both times to Pelosi.
    More Details Hide Details
    After the Republicans lost control of the House in the 2006 elections, the House Republican Conference chose Boehner as Minority Leader.
    More Details Hide Details While as Majority Leader he was second-in-command behind Speaker Dennis Hastert, as Minority Leader he was the leader of the House Republicans.
    In an upset, Boehner was elected by his colleagues to serve as House Majority Leader on February 2, 2006.
    More Details Hide Details The election followed Tom DeLay's resignation from the post after being indicted on criminal charges. Boehner campaigned as a reform candidate who wanted to reform the so-called "earmark" process and rein in government spending. He defeated Majority Whip Roy Blunt of Missouri and Representative John Shadegg of Arizona, even though he was considered an underdog candidate to Blunt. In the second round of voting by the House Republican Conference, Boehner defeated Blunt with 122 to 109 votes. Blunt kept his previous position as Majority Whip, the No. 3 leadership position in the House. (There was some confusion on the first ballot for Majority Leader as the first count showed one more vote cast than Republicans present, due to a misunderstanding as to whether the rules allowed Resident Commissioner Luis Fortuño of Puerto Rico to vote).
  • 2004
    Age 54
    Boehner opposes same-sex marriage, as evidenced by his vote for the Federal Marriage Amendment in both 2004 and 2006.
    More Details Hide Details In a letter to the Human Rights Campaign, Boehner stated, "I oppose any legislation that would provide special rights for homosexuals...

    From 1995 to 1999, Boehner served as House Republican Conference Chairman which is the party caucus for Republicans in the United States House of Representatives.
    More Details Hide Details In this post, he was the fourth-ranking House Republican, behind Gingrich, Majority Leader Dick Armey and Majority Whip Tom DeLay. During his time as Conference Chairman, Boehner championed the Freedom to Farm Act that, among other provisions, revised and simplified direct payment programs for crops and eliminated milk price supports through direct government purchases. In the summer of 1997 several House Republicans, who saw Speaker Newt Gingrich's public image as a liability, attempted to replace him as Speaker. The attempted "coup" began July 9 with a meeting between Republican conference chairman Boehner and Republican leadership chairman Bill Paxon of New York. According to their plan, House Majority Leader Dick Armey, House Majority Whip Tom DeLay, Boehner and Paxon were to present Gingrich with an ultimatum: resign, or be voted out. However, Armey balked at the proposal to make Paxon the new Speaker, and told his chief of staff to warn Gingrich about the coup.
