Most conservatives have known for years that Boehner was not a true conservative, but a true politician. He has shown us signs that this was the case. He always put on a brave face, but caved when it became politically expedient to do so. He has repeatedly abandoned his stated values in the face of difficulty. That he would betray those stated values and the people who voted for, supported, and counted on him is the final betrayal. However, we are not talking about Boehner’s resignation, but the deal he reportedly struck on the way out the door.
Sources tell Breitbart News that several members of the House of Representatives are saying “the rumor is Boehner cut a deal with Pelosi.” According to those sources, outgoing House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) and Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) agreed that her Democratic caucus would join Boehner along with a handful of Boehner loyalists and moderate establishment Republicans to continue Planned Parenthood funding, along with a few other budget items President Obama says were must-haves, in order to avoid a Government shutdown.
As I have said all along, there would be no way that this Congress or any for that matter would ever succeed in defunding this wicked organization. I know this because if there were half a chance of that, they would have already indicted the slaughterhouse executives. However, it is a shock that the Congressional opposition to Planned Parenthood came to an end in such a manner.
So, what we have to ask is why. Why would he betray his party, his constituents, and his own values?
Sources also tell Breitbart News that Boehner was inspired by the visit of Pope Francis, and decided it was his duty to resign in order to do what was right for the Congress and the country.
Now, we can be sure that Boehner did not have Planned Parenthood in mind when he said such things. However, most probably his statements had reference to the government shutdown. He most likely weighed out the situation and determined that the government shutdown was the worse of two evils. Being that, at least in Boehner’s mind, the government shutdown is the worst possible scenario, he betrayed everything that he claimed to stand for and represent.
But to say that a liberal socialist Pope was the inspiration for betraying the safety of a child is a foolish and illogical sentiment.
The irony in that inspiration, if the rumors are true, is that the Catholic Boehner, inspired by a Catholic pope, both of whom oppose abortion, will be a key player in continuing the public funding of Planned Parenthood, an organization dedicated to performing abortions.
So, to ensure that the government will continue to run, Boehner has chosen to go against all he claimed. But how could he possibly do that? Simply put, he believes in nothing. If God were informing his actions, then the defense of the weak would be most important. If he were following a cause, he would have fought to the death.
But since Boehner’s god is himself, he was not restrained by anything but his desire and safety. And since Boehner is his own cause, he does not think himself a Judas as his good was the end of these actions.
See kids, this is why pragmatism does not work. In the end, anything, even the mass murder of babies is allowable if it meets our purposes.
