Boehner Ousted: CFR Operatives Must Have New Plan

*Editor’s Note*¬†– Boehner, a good Catholic boy who had refused an invitation to visit the Vatican for the installation of Pope Francis (why really), is not only giving up his Speaker seat but resigning from Congress. Obama might miss him as Boehner was Obama’s best asset in Congress.

Crying during the Pope’s unwanted-by-Protestants¬†speech to Congress yesterday, did Boehner already know he had been commanded to step down and did the Pope have anything to do with it – directly or indirectly? Don’t fall for the nonsense that he felt “convicted” by the words of the fish-hat guy about “unchristian” American policies.

Those with understanding at least are aware that the Speaker of the House job is one of great enough influence that the Council on Foreign Relations must continue to control that position. Having said that, more than likely Boehner is out because CFR wants him out (or they have a more sinister job for him) and thus, the CFR will fill the vacancy with their puppet. It’s just how things are done.

Speaker John A. Boehner, under intense pressure from conservatives in his party, announced on Friday that he would resign one of the most powerful positions in government and give up his House seat at the end of October, as Congress moved to avert a government shutdown.

Mr. Boehner, who was first elected to Congress in 1990, made the announcement in an emotional meeting with his fellow Republicans on Friday morning.

Resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder Welcomed

Attorney General “Set Back Race Relations, Showed Disrespect for the Rule of Law and Undermined Basic Constitutional Principles,” Says Project 21’s Horace Cooper

“With Appropriate New Leadership, the Justice Department Can Return to its Proper Role as a Steward of the Constitution”

Washington, DC – Project 21 Co-Chairman Horace Cooper, a black legal commentator who taught constitutional law at George Mason University and a former general counsel for a U.S. House of Representatives Majority Leader, has the following comment on the resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder and his legacy:

Eric Holder’s term as the Attorney General is finally coming to an end. I, for one, am thankful.

As the nation’s first black head of the Justice Department, Eric Holder managed to set back race relations, showed disrespect for the rule of law and undermined basic constitutional principles. Hopefully, his replacement will understand the difference between being the chief legal advisor for the implementation of a partisan agenda and being the chief law enforcement officer of the United States.

With appropriate new leadership, the Justice Department can return to its proper role as a steward of the Constitution. Instead of undermining the separation of powers, it can protect it. Instead of castigating the Supreme Court and its precedent, it can bolster them.

Never again should we accept a nominee for this post who fails to accept the responsibilities of this esteemed office.

Project 21 members have disagreed with the Holder Justice Department on issues such as voter ID and other ballot protections, race-based school admissions policies and the dropped voter intimidation prosecution of the New Black Panther Party, and have questioned the Department’s investigations of the IRS scandal, Fast and Furious, and other matters.

In 2014, Project 21 members have been interviewed or cited by the media on current events over 1,300 times, including by the Fox News Special Report with Bret Baier, the O’Reilly Factor, Fox and Friends, CNN’s Situation Room, Salem Radio Network, Sean Hannity, Jim Bohannon, Conservative Commandos Radio, Radio America, American Urban Radio Network, Roger Hedgecock, Dana Loesch, Thomm Hartmann, Progressive Radio Network, The Blaze, EurWeb, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, SiriusXM satellite radio, TVOne, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Orlando Sentinel and 50,000-watt talk radio stations including WBZ-Boston, WJR-Detroit, KDKA-Pittsburgh and WLW-Cincinnati. Project 21 has participated in cases before the U.S. Supreme Court regarding race preferences and voting rights and defended voter ID laws at the United Nations. Its volunteer members come from all walks of life and are not salaried political professionals.

Project 21, a leading voice of black conservatives for over two decades, is sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research, a conservative, free-market, non-profit think-tank established in 1982. Contributions to the National Center are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated.

Nixon Resigns

If you listen to this resignation speech, regardless of what you thought of Nixon, and maybe many of you never knew the man, listen to a couple of the reasons he gives for resigning. At issue is his concern that with such little support in Congress, which should translate down to the people as well, he fears that due to distrust, important issues (say like a Middle East war, another attack on a U.S. embassy, terror attack at home, etc.) it will hurt the American people.
