CLIFF KINCAID — On Saturday and Sunday, The Washington Post's liberal reporters warned that Republican victories in November on the national and state levels have given the GOP the opportunity this year to become "aggressive" and pass their own legislation and initiatives. "GOP will flex muscles in the states" ran on Saturday, with an article, "Eager GOP sets its goals," about their national effort running on Sunday. But there is something else the Republicans could do to really strike fear into the hearts of liberals -- restore internal security panels that once examined "un-American" activities.... (more)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — Republican John Boehner was elected to a third term as U.S. House Speaker, despite more than two dozen GOP lawmakers who voted against him. After a lengthy roll call vote, the Ohio Republican earned 216 votes, more than enough to put him in the majority. Boehner needed only 205 votes, lower than the usual 218 votes, because of a missing bloc of Democratic lawmakers who were in New York attending the funeral of former Gov. Mario Cuomo.... (more)

POLITICO — John Boehner is getting revenge. After he secured his third term as speaker Tuesday afternoon, losing 25 votes on the House floor to some relative-unknown members of the Republican Conference, Boehner moved swiftly to boot two of the insurgents from the influential Rules Committee. That could be just the start of payback for the speaker's betrayers, who might see subcommittee chairmanships and other perks fall away in the coming months.... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY — Now the dust settles. After a historic House vote in which Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, mustered just enough votes to retain his hold on power, to the chagrin of many conservative Republicans, those same conservatives say they feel abandoned by the party they've worked to support....

DIANA WEST — From the "A" section of the New York Times, Page 15, in less than 100 words, the psychosis of denial as it is hard-wired into American journalism: Six years into his presidency, there seems to be almost nothing the nation does not know about Mr. Obama, ranging from his views on the use of drones to target terrorists to how his daughters have less interest in hanging out with him as they become teenagers....

NEWSWEEK — The House of Representatives may be under Republican control, but it lacks any semblance of principled leadership. In fact, fiscally conservative and libertarian-leaning members--the ideas wing of the GOP--have faced an increasingly hostile environment under Republican leadership, one in which they're treated as obstacles rather than allies to advance the limited government policies that Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and his team purportedly believe....

WORLDNETDAILY — The latest head-count shows House Republicans may be within 15 votes of making the first step toward dethroning Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, by forcing a second ballot. The effort by GOP House members to oust Boehner is gaining momentum, but most of the action on Capitol Hill Monday is obscured from view, with the cajoling and arm-twisting for votes taking place behind closed doors....

JOSEPH FARAH — Let me see if I can make this really simple for House Republicans preparing to cast their most important vote of the next two years. Tomorrow 247 Republicans will determine who the next House speaker will be. The speaker of the House is the second most powerful position in Washington.
