Skip to comments.John Boehner's Bizarre Arrogance Feeds Tea Party Revolution
Posted on 04/25/2014 11:06:23 AM PDT by cotton1706
Establishment Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner is taking a lot of well-deserved heat for mocking conservative House Republicans who are opposed to amnesty for illegal aliens.
Boehners mocking imitation of opponents of immigration reform, that is anything but a reform and more like an abandonment of American sovereignty in favor of a policy of open borders, was indicative of why, under Boehners arrogant leadership, the House Republican Conference has floundered from crisis to crisis.
But buried in Boehners remarks was an even more bizarre example of establishment Republican leadership that explains the great fault line in American politics today; the divide between the ruling class of Washingtons inside elite and what Angelo Codevilla called the country class of Americans who believe in the rule of law and limited constitutional government.
Heres the quote according to Sheila McLaughlins reporting for The Cincinnati Enquirer:
"I've gone to hundreds of tea party events over the last four years. The makeup is pretty much the same. You've got some disaffected Republicans, disaffected Democrats. You always have a handful of anarchists. They are against everything. Eighty percent of the people at these events, are the most ordinary Americans you've ever met. None of whom have ever been involved in politics. We in public service respect the fact that they brought energy to the political process.
We in public service?
We the People have a message for Speaker Boehner; in a republic, such as ours, theres not supposed to be a difference between those in public service and ordinary Americans.
We the People (ordinary Americans) are sovereign and those in public service come from our ranks to serve us, and their contract is up for review every Election Day.

The caddy is starting to crack. He is caught between the ire of the base, and whatever it is that has compromised him and made him servile to the dems.
Bonehead is the reason I changed my affiliation from Republican to Independent. I’ll not give a penny to any Republican cause as long as that drunk cretin is in the house (very very small “h” intended).

The very intense spectacle of the WWII, Vietnam memorials being shut down denying veterans visitation on trumped up reasons, and a rally for illegal aliens taking place on the Washington Mall during the government shutdown, and NO POLITICAL PUSHBACK whatsoever from the Republicans and Boehner, has me convinced that conservative patriots have no representation in Washington. Whatever it is they have on Boehner, it must be powerful. Picture with the goat?
The problem is that you cannot beat someone with nobody. This article talks about the race and Boner’s opponents:
Unfortunately it looks like Boner is going to win, particularly since there are three opponents and all it takes is getting the most votes to win. There is no runoff system if someone does not get more than 50%.
According to the article, the only hope is that Boner does poorly enough in the primary that a conservative will challenge him for the Speaker job. Not likely. If no big name Republican like Trey Gowdy will challenge Lindsey Graham for the Senate in South Carolina, I don’t think anyone with a chance to win will challenge Boner.
Whatever it is they have on Boehner, it must be powerful.
I have an intuitive conviction. If that suspicion is accurate, it will come out eventually.
For the last 40 years, the traitors in DC have done all they cam to replace American voters with Mexicans.
They aren’t about to give up now — when they are so close to achieving their goal.
Ive seen plenty of signs on lawns that simply state Fire Boehner.
I bailed from the GOP when Lindsey voted for Sotomayor.
Boehner has neutralized the Republicans. In fact, he is ushering in their demise.
>> Ive seen plenty of signs on lawns that simply state Fire Boehner.
That needs to be upped to fiery effigies.
“I bailed from the GOP when Lindsey voted for Sotomayor.”
So, you’ve surrendered to the likes of Little Lindsey Graham and Boehner?
Well, some of us continue the fight for the Republican Party and we are having more and more success-—such as Ted Cruz. But that’s with no thanks for those who have surrendered in the fight and have abandoned the battlefield.
If the republican caucus doesn’t figure out a way to get rid of him in the next month, then he will have 18 squish republicans back from their primaries ready to vote for amnesty with all the dems, and amnesty will become the law of the land unless Americans stage a revolt of historic proportions.
And amnesty will usher in ‘coaches’ and community organizers who will guide and instruct amnestied illegals to get id cards and register to vote under motor voter even though they are not citizens.
Boehner must be removed now.
The loss of three seats will not lead to loss of majority, but would be a shot heard round DC.
Sure you can just vote for his Democratic opponent, it would be a big improvement. He has to go one way or the other.
I don't think they have anything on Boner. He is acting they way he does because he wants to. I think he is a willing Globalist because that is what he believes. I think he's an Elitist. I think he is a power hungry jerk who sold his soul to Mammon and he likes it.
“Gerrymandering” has been described as the process by which politicians select their voters, rather than the other way around.
What we’ve seen over the last 40 years has been gerrymandering on an international scale.
Boner got bent out of shape when the Tea Party Rally in Fresno wouldn’t agree to have him or any other politician speak from the dais.
The man is an alcoholic who is incapable of doing anything other than surrendering. Time for John to retire
I have two words for Boehner, and they are not Happy Birthday.
Either this guy is a Democrat masquerading as a Republican, or the Dems have a highly comprising photo of him. Regardless, for sure, he is in no way representing Republican voters.
For me, the one word that describes Boehner is: Disgusting.
