  • John Boehner just sacrificed his career for the good of the Republican Party

    The stunning decision by House Speaker John Boehner to resign from office in October is a sign of not only his inability to lead a congressional party riven between its establishment and tea party wings, but also the toll fighting that fight has taken on him -- and the GOP more broadly. Almost since the day he became speaker -- following the tea party-led takeover of Congress in the 2010 midterm elections -- Boehner had been caught betwixt and between. His roots were firmly in the establishment end of the party, having spent decades in Congress and moving up the...
  • Boehner Betrayed His Party (great article...from Politico!!)

    09/27/2015 6:52:29 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 25 replies ^ | 9/25/15 | Michael A. Needham
    Why the Speaker's resignation is great news for conservatives. “We want to give Boehner a governable majority so the crazies you hate will be irrelevant.” This is how the Washington Republican Establishment talks to its K Street allies. It’s a quote from last October when a Republican campaign operative told the business community why it was important for Republicans to capture 245 House seats. The establishment isn’t focused on marginalizing liberal lawmakers trying to grow the size and scope of government. They want to marginalize conservative lawmakers fighting to keep the reasonable promises they have made to their constituents. The...

    House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)is under fire from Conservatives. While on a fund raising trip, he told a Politico reporter that dealing with them is part of his job. “Garbage men get used to the smell of bad garbage. Prisoners learn how to become prisoners, all right?” Boehner said in a phone interview this weekend from Seattle during a fundraising trip to the Pacific Northwest, referring especially to the grind of constant travel. “You can teach yourself to do anything, especially if you’re committed to a cause. I came to Washington to fight for a smaller, less costly and...

    You can now see it with how we've got Boehner on the run, needing Democrats' votes to just to hold-on his speakership. How on Earth could he possibly retain any effective authority or ability to lead our party after we all just said we want nothing to do with this bozo?  Maybe the Democrats will bail him out just to keep the GOP in a state disarray .. they'd own him more than ever -he'd effectively become a Democratic 'majority' leader in the House- and then they could all ram-through even more Obama lunacy. At least it would be clear once-and-for-all...

    Politico ran a piece this morning asserting “Boehner’s future as speaker in doubt.”“The Republican leader faces a grueling next few months, and even allies believe this will be his last term atop the GOP conference,” is the article’s subhead.Could we be seeing the last of John Boehner?With anti-establishment fervor at all-time high (see: presidential candidate Donald Trump’s ascension in the polls), it’s no surprise Boehner is standing on fragile ground with the speaker’s gavel. Grassroots Republicans are sick of the GOP’s “failure theater” and superficial efforts to push an agenda supported by center-right voters while choosing to push the...
  • What Will Nancy Pelosi Make Boehner Do to Save His Speakership?

    American Thinker ^ | 9/96/2015 | Ed Straker
    When someone challenges the Speaker of the House (by a technical procedure known as declaring the office of the speakership "vacant"), usually the leadership holds what is basically a vote of confidence immediately to show that a majority of the members still support the Speaker. Otherwise it raises doubts about whether the Speaker still has the support of the majority of the members. But that's not what happened when Rep. Mark Meadows declared the office of the speaker vacant in late July in protest against the accomodationist policies of Speaker John Boehner. The House didn't hold any kind of vote...

    Speaker ’s worst nightmare is on the rise here in rural North Carolina. Senator Mark Meadows is gaining steam as a clearly coordinated, highly orchestrated effort to remove Boehner as Speaker of the United States House of Representatives—and fix a broken Congress that no longer represents the wishes of the American people—comes into much clearer focus.

    House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) had been planning to call up on the House floor last week a measure from Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) that would have removed him as Speaker of the House if it succeeded—intending to embarrass Meadows—but abandoned the plan after his entire leadership structure learned that they did not have the votes to re-elect him as Speaker before the August recess. “[House Majority Leader Kevin] McCarthy was making phone calls—he was whipping it—and so was [House Majority Whip] Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA),” a senior conservative movement leader who’s had many personal and direct discussions with...
  • He Lacks the Votes to Keep His Job: Now Is the Time to Dump Boehner!

    Last week, we learned about a motion filed by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) 83% (R-NC) to remove Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) 16%‘s favorite Republican, Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A%, from his perch as Speaker of the House. At the time, many within the party establishment wrote off the effort by Meadows as the nonsensical vagary of the radical right-wing; unworthy of serious consideration because, after all, the votes to kick his sorry butt to the curb didn’t exist. Right? Well, as Lee Corso of ESPN College Game Day would say, not so fast my friend. In a new exclusive report...
  • Move to remove Boehner grows and may have the votes

    If you, as will most people, just glance at the Elite Media's reporting of Rep. Mark Meadows move to oust John Boehner as Speaker you probably think he is a delusional nutcase and that the move has no chance of passing. Well, think again. reports that the reason the Meadows' resolution was not put on the floor for a vote was simply because they were not sure they had the votes to defeat it, meaning that they were afraid the resolution had enough votes to remove Boehner and declare the Speakership vacant. So they recessed for the summer. Here's...
  • Boehner's View on Congressional Representatives: Members Must Remain on the "Reservation"

    07/30/2015 12:12:38 PM PDT · by conservativejoy · 22 replies ^ | 7/30/2015 | Mara Zebest
    Mark Levin exposes how Boehner views the Congressional representatives elected by the people. Apparently, Boehner feels that the representatives need to remain on the reservation and serve only CHIEF Boehner—rather than represent their constituents. The below audio also contains a clip from Congressman Walter Jones who supports Mark Meadows’ move to remove Boehner and provides supportive reasons for why it needs to be done. Congressman Jones explains that Boehner uses his position to intimidate and coerce (more on the CNN interview with Jones here). Boehner’s mafia-like tactics are used to gain support for bills that ultimately enable Obama instead of...

    The Golf Channel is promoting Speaker of the House Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) appearing on the show “Feherty” on August 3, where he will be discussing the importance of golf in his life, which brings him to tears. Boehner says that President Barack Obama wants to go golfing with him, but they cannot golf together “because everybody gets bent out of shape worried about what we are up to, when all we are really want to do is just play golf.”

You send a regular guy like John Boehner to Washington - a guy who cuts his own grass and irons his own shirts - and all he wants is to be able to play golf with the president in peace. And you # about it, to the point where he’s had to come to the heartbreaking conclusion that hitting the links with Obama just isn’t worth the trouble anymore: “The President has suggested, ‘Hey, do you think it is too much trouble to play golf again?’ ” he said...

    Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) has filed a motion to try to force Speaker John Boehner from his leadership post. The move, called a motion to vacate the chair, represents a new level of opposition to GOP leadership from the conservative wing of the House Republican Conference. The motion can be postponed for several days before consideration. The resolution was filed late Tuesday afternoon, just one day before the House was slated to depart for its summer recess.

    Voting against the speaker’s reelection may have cost one Iowa Republican his seat. John Boehner has found ways to punish the fractious conservatives who have formed into a thorn in his side since attempting a coup at the beginning of the year. Through means both petty and significant, Boehner has made his displeasure felt while trying to lead the broader conference in a series of high-profile legislative fights. A number of rebel backbenchers have had their overseas travel curtailed and their committee posts threatened or even taken away. But the treatment of one lawmaker in particular stands out: Colleagues worry...

    Dozens of members of the House GOP's most conservative faction plan to meet Tuesday to discuss ways to counteract the decision of House Speaker John Boehner and other leaders to seek retribution against members who vote against must-pass measures. The House Freedom Caucus, a GOP group made up of about 40 of the most conservative members, plans to hold the discussion some time after Tuesday's evening votes, according to lawmakers familiar with the initiative. Freedom Caucus Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said Monday in a radio interview that many conservatives were "fed up" with the string of punishment meted out to...

    It’s time for conservatives to take out House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)35% and all of his comrades in primaries, nationally syndicated radio host, New York Times bestselling author, and conservative movement thought leader Mark Levin argues in an exclusive comment to Breitbart News. Levin’s comments come after Boehner’s retaliation against conservatives hit a new low this weekend, with a report from Politico about how House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT)80% —playing along with Boehner’s scheme to attack Republicans for voting their conscience—removed Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC)96% as the chairman of a subcommittee on...
