Dana Rohrabacher warns John Boehner on speakership
Politico ^ | 6/18/13 7:27 AM EDT | REBECCA ELLIOTT

Posted on 06/18/2013 7:49:39 AM PDT by LibFreeUSA

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) says Speaker John Boehner should be ousted if he rams through an immigration bill without majority Republican support.

“If Speaker Boehner moves forward and permits this to come to a vote even though the majority of the Republicans in the House—and that’s if they do—oppose whatever it is that’s coming to a vote, he should be removed as Speaker,” Rohrabacher said on World Net Daily radio on Monday.

Rohrabacher was responding to Boehner’s assertion that immigration reform is at the top of his legislative agenda and his suggestion in an interview with ABC last week in which he would not rule out pushing a bill through without the support of a majority of his party, a violation of the so-called “Hastert rule.”

“I would consider that a betrayal of the Republican members of the House and a betrayal of the Republicans throughout the country,” Rohrabacher said.

The Washington Examiner reported Sunday that Boehner has decided he will not call a vote without his party’s backing.

Rohrabacher also said he is “alerting the American people to this danger that is right upon us” and he slammed the Gang of Eight for voting down Sen. Chuck Grassley’s (R-Iowa) amendment requiring the implementation of stricter border security before legalization. “There will be no border security improvements. It’ll all be a facade,” Rohrabacher said of the bill.

He also attacked the immigration bill’s supporters, saying “those people pushing this bill are doing it in the most deceptive and dishonest way.”

Number one on Rohrabacher’s list is Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), whom he accused of using “weasel words” in a bid for reform. “Rubio is so mixed up and so confused. I think he has given up his rightful place to advise any of us in Washington what to do and…he’s given up any right to be trusted by the American people,” Rohrabacher said.

He continued: “I’m not going to vote for any bill that has a provision that legalizes the status of those people who are here illegally.”

Dana you are on the right track.

Except I’m not sure we even need to wait.

Get him out of that spot. We need a real leader.

Boehner will be compensated well enough that he won't need his speaker position anymore, anyway.

That would be a betrayal not only of Republicans but of all Americans.

No warnings.

Kick the drunken crying RINO b**tard out.

So far he will not hit the ground until Ireland.

Do it.

We don’t give a smelly Obama about that RINidiot anymore.

Boehner can be the leader of 18 RINOs, if he can find that many. The rest of the Republicans ought to elect a new Speaker.

Excellent plan -- wait till AFTER the guy stabs his own in the back to get rid of him. D'oh! How about this -- hold a vote for his replacement UNLESS he does something irrevocable that would prevent him from being able to do it? If that's not possible, I think you just have to go on his record and replace him BEFORE he can do irreversible damage.

We can’t give a re-packaged ACORN full and unfettered control over immigration as the current proposal is written. Start with Boehner, then move over to the Senate get rid of Reid, Durbin, Graham, McCain, and the balance of the RINOs.

Really. I’m quite sick of these ‘imaginary lines in the sand’ republicans are so fond of drawing.

??? They just re-elected him Speaker a few months ago, right after the tax compromise extension.

Bohner knows they will do nothing but whine

The Republicans are only a pretend opposition party. They stand for fiscal responsibility whenever they are out of power.

THE RUBICON has been crossed.

Well, at least one congressman gets it. It is a pity that more of them haven’t done so.

The opportunity to do that has already come and gone. Even Bachmann voted to keep Boehner in at the last minute.

Good point. Boehner can still screw over the country - closing the gate after the horses are out is pointless. Boehner has already stated his intentions - so kick him out based on that.

The Republican leadership apparently approves of the ongoing and systematic destruction of Main Street - I guess their big contributors have commanded them to help make it happen.

Find it strange when the excuse is being given that while the government knows whats going on in 300 million citizens lives but because the illegals are not citizens and in “the shadows” according to Florida’s Senator Rubio the US doesn’t know who they are or where they’re comming from so we must make them citizens..

FR’s ;This Wednesday June 19th a Anti Amnesty Rally will be held on the Capitol grounds. Participants are urged to visit their respective Congressional Representatives and let them know their feelings Michelle Bachmann announced over the Rusty Humphries show

If you agree with the above and the following please don’t let it lay here in FR-land. Pass it on to to your favorite talk show host and to your US legislators. PUSH THE HASTERT RULE.

ONE NATIONALITY AMNESTY SKEWS QUOTAS. AMNESTY FOR NATIONALS FROM A COUNTRY THAT HAS CLAIMS ON OUR NATIONAL TERRITORY HURTS OTHERS FROM SOUTH AMERICA, AMERICAN CITIZENS AND SKILLED LABOR FROM OTHER NATIONS

In that May 3rd speech Obama gave before the Mexican Anthropological Museum in which he blamed America for the violence in Mexico I believe he went even futhur. There’s a inference but never referenced by name to the Gasden purchase and border settlements US made with Mexico where Obama hinted he seems to side with the Mexican claims. Would those in attendence share that view is a question that should be asked, because I believe they would,.he does.

SOLVING THE ‘LATINO” PROBLEM A MYTH HISPANIC IS NOT A RACE BUT A POLITICAL LINGUISTIC CONTRIVANCE ...don’t fall into the hypenated Americans trap created by the hypenated political party ...The DEMO-COMS

The Mexicans have been getting most favorable treatment above the rest of our neighbors both north and south. They’re permitted to cross our borders and enter illegally and are allowed access to rights of citizenship (with the exception of voting which if the democrat party regains control over the House will happen) other nationals entering this country don’t get.. Worse yet the Obama government has been working hand in glove with Mexican movements such as LaRaza supporting the Mexican claims which are also supporting “Amnesty”.

Also by allowing Mexicans to do this any quota ration for immigration from other south and central American countrys are taken up by Mexicans while that country is laying claim to a large chunk of our sovereign territory is a recipe for later serious problems which are happening now.

ARE MEXICAN ILLEGALS SQUATTERS PERPETUATING THE MEXICAN CLAIMS ?

We are already seeing the result of this in certain areas claimed by the Mexicans. Their national flag (standard) gets displayed over ours. Where there is a controlling number of Mexican nationals (illegals). It’s displayed over certain institutions particularly schools accompanied by riots and disturbances. Blacks are threatend by Mexicans in certain sections of citys in those areas. We’re courting trouble by not placing a value on our sovereignty and our citizenship.

MOST COINS OF THE REALM HAVE TWO FACES WHAT ABOUT HOW ARE AMERICAN CITIZENS LIVING IN MEXICO BEING TREATED ?

Worse yet if a US citizen goes into Mexico never mind illegaly but legally. They’ll get 2nd class treatment. Land ownership in title is prohibited period. And there are a slew of regulations they must comply with. Which doesn’t apply to a citizen of Mexico.

By not insisting on reciprocity particularly on those who have entered this country illegally we’re offering no incentive for assimilation and we’re not easing the burden for our fellow citizens who for what ever reason decided to live in Mexico.

ENOUGH OF THE ONE WORLD SOCIALISM ...BRING BACK SOVEREIGNTY AND SANITY TO OUR COUNTRY .....BRING BACK BELIEF IN GOD ...THIS GOVERNMENT OUT OUR FACE..... OUR RELIGIONS..... AND OUR BEDROOMS..

Good for Rohrabacher. It’s rare to find a guy that will speak the truth plainly, particularly in the District of Corruption.

I wonder how the Weeper is taking this poke in the eye? (I know it has been reported that he said today that any bill, in order to pass the House, must have majority Republican support. Maybe the Weeper is hearing this kind of talk from others in addition to Rohrabacher, and is scared he may have to give up his perks if he tries to ram this turkey through.)
