The Senate Conservatives Fund says that it is time for House Speaker John Boehner to go and they will keep track of the GOP lawmakers that support their effort to oust him from his leadership post. The group, which is targeting several incumbent Republicans in primary races this year, said Mr. Boehner, Ohio Republican, has sold out small government principles on too many occasions and the last straw came this week when....con't here

Support Eric Gurr to oust John Boehner in OH-8

Also, press your Representative to NOT support Boehner for Speaker.

Support Dave Brat to oust Eric Cantor in VA-7

Also, press your Representative to NOT support Cantor for Speaker.

Spot on! And Gurr looks very qualified!

And yes, voting Boehner out of office will send a direct message to the leadership in the House.

Mr. Boehner said Tuesday that he is preparing to move forward on the first no-strings-attached debt increase of his tenure as speaker.

The announcement came after Mr. Boehner and his leadership team tried — and failed — to get rank-and-file Republicans to sign off a deal that would increase the nation debt limit and restore future cuts in the cost-of-living adjustments on military retirement pay that were included in the December budget deal.

Boehner MUST go, along with Turncoat Republicans falling into line with him.

Whenever the rare opportunity to reduce the size of the Spendaholic Federal Government approaches a decision point, the unchallenged and therefore invincible Obamanation Congressional Format, ( OCF ), unfolds flawlessly as follows:

* Permissive, weak and cowardly Speaker “Doormat” Boehner proclaims that THIS time he will protect and defend the US Constitution;
* “Assistant Doormat” Cantor will nod like the bobble head lap dog that he is;
* Cave-In, Con-Artist Ryan will make a side deal with his Pelosi Pals;
* “Rubberstamp” Reid will then approve whatever the Pelosi Pals have shamed Ryan into ramming through the House;
* Lazy, Anti-Work Obama will say “The OCF worked again! That was sooooo EASY!”
* The Left Stream Media will gently boo Boehner, while mildly applauding his “Bipartisan” Leadership;
* “Doormat” Boehner will then slink off sobbing, relieved that he dodged another major tongue-lashing from the Left Stream Media;
* Karl Rove will go on FOX and say “The Moderate House Republicans are showing that they are willing to work with Obama;”
* Krauthammer will go on FOX and say “Unbelievable;”
* The Conservative voters will say:
*** “Yup, permissive RINOs are no match for the Commies, Socialists and Democrats in Congress.
*** We are doomed to feel sorry for ourselves, again.
*** What shall we do?
*** Sigh - - - - .”

BTW, Boehner, Cantor and Ryan are all heavily favored to win re-election to their well-worn House seats in 2014 - - - - .

_____________

The voters in Boehner’s Ohio House District vote Boehner into the US House, and the US House Members vote to choose THEIR Speaker.

Weak, cowardly, permissive “Doormat” Boehner thus fairly represents our weak, cowardly, permissive, doormat RINOs.

The voters in Ohio are simply overjoyed that the US House RINO Members have loyally continued to keep in place a weak, cowardly, permissive, doormat Speaker who has ALWAYS caved in to Obama.

Boehner’s Speakership is safe, as our House RINOs just love to Cave In to Commies, Socialists, Democrats, and especially to Obama.

Oops, I feel a “Boehner” coming on! Please pass the Kleenex! Sob!

No, No! The Charmin is for an Obama!

Kleenex is for a Boehner! Sob, sob, sob - - - - - .

Oh, I think that’s an overreaction. We don’t need to take his head, just sever it from his body. If he likes his head, he can keep it. Period.

Remove Boehner and his entire “leadership” team now before the 2014 election for two reasons: he (they are) is attempting to forever end any Republican Party leadership by ramming through Amnesty (under any guise rather than enforcing existing law) against the will of the American people and the express desire of registered GOP members; and he (thy) will also support raising the debt not only without any strings, i.e. Keystone Pipeline, restoring cuts to the military.

I have been in this campaign since late September. I have not been as angry about John Boehner as I am today. This is insanity. Does he no longer believe that the money he racks up in clean debt increases belongs to us?
If he can’t do it he needs to get out of the way.
This is an absolute travesty. Madison, Washington, Hamilton, Franklin are collectively spinning in their graves.

The House RINO have given up again, ——everything seems to be in place now - - - - .

We even have “Doormat” Boehner in place as the whiney, wimpy, Whimper-Speaker!

FORWARD!, into the abyss of Obamanation!

This is the kind of thing that baffles your ordinary liberal voter (or media member). To their way of thinking, Boehner, Romney, McCain, etc... are “far right conservatives”. This is why they thought Bush’s low approval numbers indicated that the public was moving to the Left. That they don’t understand us at all should be a huge advantage, as they are utterly transparent.

We do net need to keep this joker, "leader" and his RINO/semi-socialist team to remain in office until after the 2014 election!

Keeping the, in place will: cause us to fall far behind on raising money because everyone (small donors and not so small businesses) will continue to keep their check books closed; and we will leave many voters sitting at home because they refuse to sign on to the liberal agenda that Boehner and his boys continue to serve up! With Boehner in charge, we will lose-he will see to it! H refuses to do or say anything that encourages them that the GOP is a party that is for conservatives rather than Obama/Reid/Pelosi and ?Chuck Schumer!

These people are all tone deaf and I knew it when I saw who he put in charge of the committees, I.e, the guy who shut down the electric light bulb, for God's sake!

Boner has never seen a hill he would deign to fight on. But he has sure seen a bunch he would like to play golf on.

The man is worthless as a "leader" of any principle. He would best be employed washing bar glasses. Hopefully, you can send him back home to do just that.

Boehner looks compromised.

Boehner makes mention of passing a clean debt ceiling increase and the markets jump. This allows Yellen to keep pumping fiat currency into taking on bank toxic debt. Investment Bankers in turn via their surrogates and hedge funds drive the markets ever higher.

Boehner is always the first to hold this hot potato and he always hands it off to someone else. He thinks the shills in the press will shape public opinion to blame him if he doesn’t accede to ‘reasonable governance’. He’s right about what the press will attempt to do. But Americans have fought wars knowing their lives could be lost or in the case of Normandy, ‘will’ be lost. The Founders knew their heads could end up in a noose. But Boehner has to maintain his tan and expensive Scotch habits. He’s about as inspirational and exciting as a blind date with an actuary. When it comes to leadership, there’s no there there.

The leftist press is not so effective today at shaping public perception. Old news media are experiencing layoffs and are losing advertiser market share, readers and viewers year over year.

When Ted Cruz was at the height of leading the effort to withhold funds for Obamacare, he was as we all know smeared nonstop by the NY media. He became their focal point for Alinsky tactics.

But here’s the good news, a business partner of mine, an English aristocrat living in Chelsea London, who a few years ago was filled with global warming propaganda and who listened to the BBC, and who I have since been converting to a more objective viewpoint, he called me on Skype (and we are fully aware of NSA monitoring and often say hi to our NSA recorders) and he told me “THE REPUBLICANS ARE WINNING”. And this was broadcast by BBC, the predominant leftist press organ in UK.

This and other solid information I have received shows the way to be is to stand up and not back down.

The only thing to watch for is the gotcha game. The default position for any Tea Party aspirant to political office should be “I am going to follow the wishes of my supporters”. When the press shoves a hot potato on us, we are not obliged to respond to their questions when we sense it’s a setup.

“I am going to follow the wishes of my supporters”.

Abortion on demand, homosexual marriage, war on women, and so on should be met with a response that neuters the question.

Press: “And what are the wishes of your supporters?”

Response: “Fiscal sanity and jobs”

Press:
“Are you against a women’s reproductive freedom?”,

“Do you think women who have been raped should have a right to decide what happens to their body?”,

“Are you for marriage equality?”,

“What would be ‘your plan’ for ‘replacing’ the Affordable care Act?”,

“Will your ties to the Xenophobic Tea Party obligate you to deny people of color a chance at the American Dream?”

“Are you concerned that the Tea Party is ‘against’ so much and ‘for’ nothing?”

Response: “I am going to follow the wishes of my supporters”.

Press: “And what are the wishes of your supporters?”

Response: “Fiscal sanity and jobs”

RINSE AND REPEAT; DRIVE ‘EM INSANE.

Here’s one I would throw at them:

1. Arrange a very very big announcement on a vision for the low income surviving on EBT, unemployment and disability. Make the announcement that the press are welcome with a valid press pass. At the door charge them $500 to get inside. Result: No Press inside.

2. Have key supporters come outside from the rally and talk to the press to say:

“Congressman Gurr is going to fight to make sure that social safety nets are strengthened and expanded. Any capable person should have food on the table, a roof over their heads and money left over to enjoy life with!”

Press: “And how does Mr. Gurr plan to accomplish that?”

Response: “Jobs.”

It was Ronald Reagan that said the best social program in the world is a job.

Boehner is simply doing his job as the uniparty speaker. It’s his JOB to betray conservatives. it’s his JOB to increase spending. It’s his JOB to open the gates to unrestricted immigration.

Whoever he’s working for is certainly getting good value.

LTC Allen West...is the perfect speaker, avoids inner party politicking and divisions, the speaker needs to be warrior, just his appointment would be a writing on the wall message to obama, what is more powerful the pen or the purse, who better to rally the black community with demonstrated real leadership, plus the GOPe did all they could to destroy West, what a message that would be. Win, Win, Win.

LTC WEST...Speaker of the House!

So many benefits to the conservative movement, think about it!
