Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) welcomed a fellow speaker to the U.S. Capitol today—Speaker al-Jabouri of Iraq.  The two speakers discussed efforts to support a unified Iraq and the need for a comprehensive strategy to defeat radical Islamic terrorism.

Speaker Boehner appeared on the Golf Channel for an interview with David Feherty, below are five photos Speaker Boehner shared with Feherty for the interview.
Boehner reiterated his concern that the administration appears willing to accept a bad deal, asking, “When will the president and his negotiators stand strong?”

In the span of 15 minutes at the Pentagon on Monday, President Obama effectively informed the American people half a dozen times that he is simply not interested in doing anything to change the current trajectory of the fight against the Islamic State (ISIL).

You know what they say...the first step is admitting you actually have a problem, and to his credit, President Obama reiterated his August confession when he traveled to Germany yesterday and said, more than ten months later, that he still doesn't have a strategy.


Boehner outlined specific actions President Obama must take to defeat the terrorist threat facing the U.S. and our allies, including withdrawing his authorization for the use of military force (AUMF)...and replacing it with a new AUMF that represents a real strategy...

The White House still insists that no new strategy is needed. It says the president’s policies have been a success. It just isn’t credible, things need to change.


The Obama administration may be ceding swaths of ground to the Islamic State (ISIL) from Iraq to Libya, but it’s refusing to budge in the briefing room. Despite the fall of Ramadi – which resulted in mass killings and the deaths of up to 500 people, both Iraqi civilians and soldiers – White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest insisted that the president’s strategy has been an overall success.

The president’s plan isn’t working, it’s time for him to come up with a real, overarching strategy to defeat the ongoing terrorist threat.


Boehner highlighted the House’s accomplishments in the first 100 days of the new Congress, including the bipartisan bill to strengthen Medicare that was signed into law last week.
