Iowa out; Jeb misses Boehner; Will Repub’s save Al Gore’s baby?

The genius of the RNC on display

RNC Chair: Iowa and New Hampshire Aren’t “Sacred Cows” After 2016

Reince Priebus suggests the GOP’s governing body could alter the nominating order for future presidential primaries.

“One of the things I would have been in­ter­ested in do­ing is sort of like a ro­tat­ing primary pro­cess, where you would di­vide the coun­try in­to five quad­rants and have a primary about once every two weeks. And then you could have about a 10-week primary pro­cess,” Priebus said. “I’ve al­ways been in­trigued by that idea.”

“Divide the country into five quadrants”…hmm.

Hey, Reince, here’s another idea you might be interested in: Let’s divide the country into three halves and have one third of the states have a primary every half hour and the other 75% have primaries on the first Tuesday following the day of the general election.
Intriguing, huh?

Exactly who is “we”

Jeb: We’re ‘going to miss’ Boehner

I can’t wait until we say the same about…of course, we won’t mean it. I say that, Jeb, as a “gift of love”.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) says Americans will miss outgoing Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).

“He left at the apex of his time in service to the country with the pope speaking in Congress. I think people are going to miss him in the long run because he’s a person that is focused on solving problems.”

Bush declined to say whether he thought the move was good our bad for Republicans, saying the party needs to focus on winning the presidency if Republicans want to pass conservative legislation.

“I think what we need is a conservative president that can work with Congress,” he said.

No mention of a Republican Congress

So…what  you gonna do about it?

Having already given away everything and anything Obama would want badly enough to bargain for, the GOP leadership is helpless to stop ANYTHING.

This is truly terrifying!

Lawmakers: U.S. plan for Internet may be unconstitutional

President Obama’s plan to “internationalize” the Internet may be unconstitutional, key members of Congress are claiming.

The group of lawmakers sent a letter to the Government Accountability Office last week, saying the plan to relinquish oversight of Internet domain name functions to a global, multi-stakeholder body raised questions about the administration’s “authority to transfer possession and control of critical components of the Internet’s infrastructure to a third party.”

The letter was signed by the chairmen of both congressional judiciary committees, Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va; presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif. Issa is also a former chairman of the House Oversight Committee.

The lawmakers point out that the Constitution says “Congress has the exclusive power ‘to dispose of and make all needful rules and regulations respecting the territory or other property belonging to the United States.'”       . . .

The lawmakers did not provide a deadline for answers, saying that the GAO would need to “conduct both significant audit work and complex legal analysis” in order to respond.

So maybe we will sue says some lawmakers.  And Obama in the mean time will implement it in time for the trough feeders to congregate around it and make it fait accompli?  Of course it needn’t be relegated to a legal question —  stop it because Congress has the Constitutionally ordained political power to stop it — the power of the purse.  No funds to implement any aspect including to pay any personnel of the government to prepare or facilitate anything to do with it.  Not holding our breath.
