Purged conservative reps: Boehner planning to ‘run over’ conservatives, vote for tax hike
The Daily Caller ^ | 12/4/2012

Posted on 12/04/2012 5:39:41 PM PST by GVnana

Conservative Republican Reps. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas and Justin Amash of Michigan hit back at Republican leadership on Tuesday, following their Monday removal from prominent committees, calling the move “petty” and “vindictive,” and accusing Speaker of the House John Boehner and his deputies of silencing independent conservative voices in preparation to steamroll a tax hike through Congress.

Huelskamp — who was removed from the Agriculture and Budget Committees — released a video on Friday declaring his intention to not vote for any tax increases and received notice of his removal on Monday, “one business day” later.

“I think there’s going to be an attempt to pass a tax increase through the House, in exchange for what?” he told a group of reporters at the Heritage Foundation Tuesday afternoon. “This president doesn’t want to do entitlement reform, doesn’t want to cut spending… I think it makes very clear to conservatives that you’re about to get run over.”

Everyone that supported the GOP-E is responsible for their 'mandate' to ignore conservatives.

Boehner is such an idiot. I mean really. This is not the time to piss off the base. He thinks he will survive the stab in the back, he is wrong. He thinks he is safe as leader, he is wrong. All this will do is get conservatives really pissed off and take him and his lieutenants out in two years. If he only had half the balls he appears to have against conservatives.

If the GOP house won’t vote Bonehead and Cantor out of leadership,
it’s time to borrow Boneheads FBI file from Hillary. Bonehead has been
in DC for 20 years. He’s got to have some hidden scandals.

If we can’t vote him out, scandal him out. Now

The Republican Party is now pretty obviously a division of the SocialDemocrta Party. There is no excuse at all for conservatives to remain in the Social Democrat Party. There is no benefit to conservatives in being Republicans. GET OUT NOW. Form a Conservative Party or a Liberty Party in the House of Representatives that is organizationally totally separate to the SocialDermocrat Party/Republican Division. The Republicans will get NOTHING henceforth and would begin to gather support in the countryside for a truly conservative party. Conservatives as Conservatives will do much more good than remaining as castratos in the SDP/RD. Republicans qua Republicans are positioning themselves as Kerenskyites to the Obamanist Bolsheviks. Get out. Get out. Don't passively allow the Constitution to go down the drain by remaining Republicans. Somebody once said it is far batter to fight and maybe die and maybe win on your feet than to live in a coma on your knees, or something like that.

We knew that Taxes were going to go up...the question was by how much.

The top 1% if income earners could be almost anybody in a given year. You create the new “pet rock” and it has a finite lifetime in terms of novelty and marketability.

You have two choices.

1)Take your product and run it out and hope that you generate enough cash to not have to work again.

2) Take your product and generate enough cash to finance another endeavor, to finance the next, to finance the next to where you have a real going concern i.e. Ron Popiel and Ronco.

With the current regime the Ronco thing is off the table.

One of the systemic problems with Congress (both chambers) is that the outgoing Congress gets to vote for the leadership of the new incoming Congress. The new people that we vote in don't get to participate in the vote for their own leadership.

Usually, we say that future Congresses are not bound by the votes of prior Congresses, apparently except for the votes on future leadership positions. For some reason, the parties hold their leadership votes during the lame duck session, and not after the new Congress convenes.

I have no idea.

Is it Cajun? French? Vietnamese?

and WHY does it need to be inverted? and who has that job??

“Yes, I want to you turn these rectums inside out before we freeze them”

I wonder if the rectum inverter position has high turnover... ?

If that happens, maybe it will be the end of the prog/republican party and it will take Boener out with them.

Has he been reading the Constitution out loud any more or was that just a stunt to show how patriotic he is? Does he still cry all the time? Is that from too much tanning booth or some other weakness?

That's giving anyone in Congress a benefit of the doubt, and maybe a promotion.

If that is standard pork casings for large sausages, I can find a productive use for it... congress-critters? not so much.

Count me in. This is now war. The Tea Party has come a long way.
However, they need, like another poster said here some opposition
research departments against these Rinos.
If we can’t vote these Rino’s out, scandal them out.

How you gonna clean 'em if they are outside out?

It's a sausage making thing.

I've done the sausage thing from squealing, dying pig to sizzling in a pan, and to be honest? I want them clean.

I'll invert them.

Politicians should be so useful. And half as clean.

Discretion IS the better part of valor.

I understand. Retire from the field uninverted with your honor intact.

You do show more discretion than the common Congress-critter. They make laws about that kind of stuff all the time. In contravention of Art 1, Sec 8 of the Constitution.

Look at the federal stamps on those boxes in that picture.

Actually, I think it’s time for conservatives to recognize that the Divorce is coming and to be prepared for it. When that happens and how it salts out is drastically more important than fighting over the rotting corpse of the gop.

Bingo. The sad thing is, many big politically connected companies (ex. GE, GM) like the idea of killing off any future competitors just fine. They like fascism, as long as they are the favored few.

A permanent corrupt oligarchy is rising. You have a political class writing laws to kill off competition and handing out pork to the favored few corporations. The favored corporations kick back campaign contributions to the politicians. Everything is just fine... until the country rots out from within and collapses.

These idiots in DC would not have lasted long during the time of our founding. They would have been tarred and feathered, or worse.

Today we are too lazy and scared to gather ourselves up and physically throw these bums out. As a matter of fact, even here on FR there was a thread a couple of days ago where a group of people were thanking God for their Government handouts and asking for/wanting more.

Keep that in mind. At least 2 of them want more defense cuts, for example.

Ron Paul backers.

Want to place a bet on whether Ron lives to the next election cycle? He's old.

He lost this one.

I'm very interested in changing the procurement system for DOD.

Fighter mafia will hate me, but fly, then fix. Like we did back when we were winning wars.

How about arguing merits, and staking out positions, instead of casting aspersions?
