Skip to comments.Conservatives bite back at House GOP leadership over purge (Boehner channels Stalin)
Posted on 12/05/2012 10:33:44 AM PST by jimbo123
Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) took a public shot at House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) Tuesday night, in the wake of a shake-up that knocked a small group of conservatives off prominent committees.
Justin Amash ✔ @repjustinamash Still waiting for call from GOP leadership. Are they too embarrassed to explain they booted me for working to reduce debt? 4 Dec 12 ReplyRetweetFavorite
Amash, a libertarian-leaning conservative, was taken off the House Budget Committee. Tea party-backed Rep. Tim Huelskamp (Kan.) was taken off Budget and Agriculture. Reps. Walter Jones (N.C.), a rare moderate, and David Schweikert (Ariz.) lost their spots on the Financial Services Committee. Amash, Huelskamp and Schweikert were all first elected in the 2010 Republican wave.

Wait just a minute. You ain’t Greatgrandma. You a woof in cheap clothing! (Grabs Uzi and high-tails it into the woods.)
Most Americans have no clue what time it is and most, (including many even here on FR) will call your observations ‘extremism’ and discount everything that the agendas laid out before us are going to achieve.
There is only one outcome to where we have arrived. We die free men or as slaves being led to our deaths.
There is no other future at this point for this nation that refuses to do II Chronicles 7:14.
The last liberty we have that can be exercised - is choosing how to go out. but eventually - even that will be taken away from us by the MarxoFascists and their Islamist allies.
Know this. Down deep in my soul, I will never, ever compromise my principles and vote for or work for a liberal.
Of any party.
Isn't the answer "every single time that Obama has asked"?
Changing registration to Independent makes no sense, as you may exclude yourself from the 2014 Republican primaries, depending on your state. Of course, those primaries may be meaningless. Just as meaningless as committee assignments under Boehner
The Pubbies are going to have close primaries?
Next, you'll be telling me that primary voting will start in the south.
obama probably told him that he will not go after him or his seat if he caves.
Got to hand it to Pelosi and Reid, no matter how many times they lose seats they stick to their agendas and just rephrase their agenda.
Our side caves at every issue, immigration, taxes, homosexuality, an social issue.
What a pathetic lot we have, slo long as their power stays with them and their money keeps coming to hell with us but hell they can fight our people like Sarah, Newt, Col West
It’s really difficult to prepare your kids to die if the communist-Islamist coup takes complete hold, at the same time as telling them to study hard so they can get a scholarship to go to college. Cognitive dissonance, and both they and I know it.
I had a 3-hour conversation with my 10th-grade son on Monday night. He wished that I could talk to his AP government teacher, even though we both know that he wouldn’t really listen to a word I say. Neither the communists nor the Islamists have made any secret of their intentions, yet even after 9-11 people still think you’re crazy if you say there are people who want to destroy America and kill Americans. My son was sick last week so he was at home, and he did some reading, including reading the communist goals which were read into the Congressional record sometime in the 60’s. We both agreed that it is eerie to read the plan and see how utterly successful they have been. I read him parts of an interview by Yuri Bezmenov, describing the tactics of infiltrating the important positions in academia, media, business, government, etc. None of this stuff is secret.But after 9-11 the “cool people” STILL don’t believe it’s real. We’ve seen images of the Holocaust and know full well that we are dealing with people - now ALLIES OF THE SUPPOSED PRESIDENT - who believe the Jews had it coming and want to do it again.... yet most still think they are smart and cool if they call people “ëxtreme” simply for understanding history and the threats made against us. And that includes history/government teachers.
This form of government can only work with a people that is morally upright. America isn’t. Just like in Old Testament days, the Assyrians will be allowed to come in to wipe us out. Very, very difficult days ahead, and I think people have an uneasy realization of that in their gut, even while they deny it with their mouths.
10th grader should be about 15 or 16. What you are teaching him is the truth of what happened.
My grandbabies are also grandchildren of a couple that lived through Pol-Pot in Cambodia....
Public school history isn't going to work for my grandbabies.
Not from either side of the line.
Are you familiar with the terms “analogy” and “hyperbole?”
True enough, Boner isn’t literally as bad as Stalin - though we don’t really know what he’d do given unfettered power.
But are you also familiar with the phrase “damning with faint praise?”
Would you feel better if the poster, rather than use the shorthand term “Stalinist,” used the more literally apt term “unprincipled lying RINO weasel turncoat collaborator dirtbag who would sell his first-born into slavery for a flattering article in the New York Times or a highway project in his district?”
Doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.
Yes, that would be correct.
“extreme”. That is a tell. Obviously your reading ,digesting and believing lefty material.
Unfortunately, we TOLD the GOP-e that we would accept whatever they did when we agreed to support Romney.
FReepers, if you haven’t ready #28 in its entirety, I recommend it.
Over the top Hyperbole, yes. I agree that Boehner is not Stalin. But he is TERRIBLE as Speaker. That was the point they were trying to make.
Boehner may not send people directly to their deaths like Stalin did, but the end result of his caving on many things (like 0bamacare) will end in death for many. Sarah Palin was spot on when she talked about death panels.
Leftwing economic policies - which Boehner is not doing enough to block - will rob many people of their income and their retirement savings. It will cause further job losses and with job loss there will be loss of medical coverage. (And 0bamacare will not fix this. It will make it worse.)
All of those bad economic factors will lead to deaths, too. The mammogram you skipped because you couldn’t afford it after you lost your job. The colonoscopy you skipped because your company cut you back to part time because of the 0bamacare mandate. Hollywood won’t make a movie about this with sad-eyed children or puppies or spotted owls that make people cry. But real people will feel the effects - up to and including death. A lot of those people will be greatgrandmas.
Not every death caused by a political leader comes dramatically from a bullet or a gas chamber. Those we decry. But the solitary, silent deaths that go unnoticed one by one, scattered across the country add up.
The American people are solidly behind the raising of taxes and Obama knows it. I see Obama as trying to install himself as dictator and by this unreasonable demand that he have unlimited powers to raise the debt ceiling without congress tells me all I need to know about Obama. If Republicans cave on that (which I don't think they will) we need to have an all out rebellion BUT Obama KNOWS he has the American people behind him and Republicans are in the minority. Obama is evil but the press is behind him.
Most Americans are so dumbed down they don't see it coming, but the politicians who are capitulating to the forces working to destroy the US will also be directly responsible. Some know it and are all for it and some are just tools. I would put Boehner in the 2nd catagory
If I deserve to be banned because my thoughts offend you then perhaps we are both on the wrong forum.
