Speaker of the House John Boehner’s office went into full freak out mode after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called out Republican obstruction for sending the wrong message to Putin and Russia.

Reid said, “It’s impossible to know whether events would have unfolded differently if the United States had responded to Russian aggression with a strong, unified voice. When a few extremist Republicans blocked action on this robust bill reported with strong, bipartisan support by the Foreign Relations Committee, it sent a dangerous message to Russian leaders. I am pleased that, in the face of Republicans obstruction, President Obama moved forward with additional sanctions. The President is working closely with our European allies to impose the most effective sanctions possible. In light of such clear-cut Russian aggression against Ukraine, it’s difficult to believe Republicans blocked this package at all.”

Boehner’s spokesman Michael Steel replied, “The Senate Majority Leader sounds completely unhinged. The House has acted and is continuing to act, in a reasonable and responsible way to give the White House the tools it needs to hold President [Vladimir] Putin accountable.”

House Republicans are blocking the sanctions against Russia because they are trying to go back on a 2010 agreement that would move $63 billion from the IMF crisis fund to the general fund. Republicans and Democrats agree that this change would increase the IMF’s lending power to Ukraine, but some Republicans oppose any IMF reforms being included in the bill.

There is also the giant Koch sized elephant in the room. Many House Republicans are refusing to support the sanctions bill unless the IRS stops their crackdown on dark money groups. In other words, Republicans will help Putin unless the Koch brothers and other right wing billionaires are allowed to continue to give anonymously unlimited amounts of money to Republicans.

Reid’s position is totally logical. The IRS crackdown on dark money has nothing to do with the sanctions bill, so he is not going to be ransomed. House Republicans are literally willing to sell out their own country in order to protect the Koch brothers.

Boehner didn’t like being called out on the truth, so his office called Harry Reid unhinged. The real crazy people here are the House Republicans who are so beholden to the Koch brothers that they are willing to betray their own country in order to keep the shady money flowing.

If House Republicans have to choose between supporting their country or the Koch brothers, they are choosing the Kochs.

  1. I love it when the repugs get confronted. They act like 2 year olds. The only thing missing is throwing themselves on the floor and screaming. Pretty sure that’s next. There are several house members who have investments in russia but I am sure that has nothing to do with it seeing how professional and patriotic they are.

  2. Its almost consorting with the enemy by proxy (Koch influence on Government) by condoning anarchistic behavior.

  3. Given that an embedded neocon cadre in the State Department first abetted the rightist coup in the Ukraine (“Yats is our man”) and then that the Kochs have historic ties with the former Soviet Union, I suspect there has been some crisis-manufacturing going on, with a view to discrediting this Administration.

  4. I’m 47 years old and have been unemployed since 07 Aug 2013. My u.c ran out on 04 Feb 2014. Senator bonehead a.k.a cry-baby needs to be fired for his deliberate undermining of the people he’s supposed to be serving. He needs to experience what it’s like to loose everything due the current economy. I’m a Vet of the gulf war era. I went to the V.A in Uniontown Pa for help; sounded like they would be able to help but, after going there I was told I had to go to the welfare office. Look I’m not looking for a free lunch. I’m running into age discrimination…for real… and it’s impossible to prove. I really think Senator John Boehner would serve his country better by stepping down but, he won’t due to big business and other pocket lining crookedness most of them are involved in. Impeach Boehner and save us. The real U.S of A God bless.

  5. Rep. Rob Portman is doing the right thing. John Boehner lied about this program being “unworkable” and Mr. Portman knows it. And now Boehner is saying it would be “difficult” to implement the program!

    Just because the program would be “difficult” to re-implement we should terminate it? Ok.. so people who are having a “difficult” time finding work should stop?

    Boehner is now putting both feet in his mouth.

    95% of American’s support long-term unemployment.

    Call Boehner’s office and tell him what he needs to do.

    Good luck everyone.

  6. John Boehner has lost control of himself. He has nobody standing with him on any of these issues. He’s a loner in his own camp.

    Move aside Boehner.. You incompetence is starting to surface. Seems like Boehner is getting a little frothy with all his political shenanigans.

    Contact Boehner’s office and express your concerns with his majority position in The House.

    Good luck

  7. Heath, I agree with you totally. It’s time for Boehner to get the boot. A demotion from speaker to senator is a good start. lol!

  8. Rheinhold Priebus claimed a while back that the GOP IS the “salt and light of the world” No Mr.Pubis! the GOTP is more like the Zyklon B and Hyleronc radiaton<StarTrek Nemesis of the world. They have joined this nations largest Nemesis to fight the American people and now Putin is their hero. The GOTP is NOT American in the least.

  9. Like everything in life, you gotta take you bitter with the sweet, the GOP has sold it’s soul to the devil, now the devil demands payment! I myself LOVE the tea party! because like that embarrassing uncle who boozes up every holiday and wrecks Thanksgiving dinner, the tea party is dragging the GOP over the cliff! The tea party is nothing but a collection of embarrassed ex republicans, brain dead libertarians, utterly CLUELESS ex democrats and the ALWAYS annoying as hell independent no nothing geniuses! I say let the tea party do what it do, because their ripping the GOP to shreds!! something the democratic party seemed unwilling to do the last 50 years!!

  10. heath halfhill, great comments, but just a little correction sir. It’s Congressman John Boehner, not Senator John Boehner, and this traitor need to be thrown under the prison!!!!

  11. Oh and thank you sir for your service in the Armed Forces and thanks for helping keeping our Country
    safe so that this great Nation won’t perish from the earth.

  12. I agree with you on this comment, but, they will never see the world from behind bars. PEOPLE like Bonehead and his compatriots seem to have a guardian angel on their shoulders. They make their money and live the good life with no thought of how or who is hurt.
    Their example is given in every vote they have made since Obama was elected. The only way to beat them is.. vote them all out!

  13. I have to admit, the GOP has better MOUTH PIECES, but each time facts are introduced, they respond this way.
