Boehner's recent secret meetings with the President are the last straw. It is time for him to go, and this blog is now going to join the growing chorus out there in demanding that he be replaced on January 3rd.
Please contact your local Congressman and demand that Boehner be replaced on January 3rd with someone better- someone who will communicate conservative principles, who will hold to conservative values, who will push for smaller and more limited government, who will reject deals with the devil that limit our liberties and take our property from us, and who will do a better job running the House of Representatives.
The absolute worst part about Boehner is his retaliation against any conservative or libertarian or tea party patriot- the fact that this whole plan to overthrow him must be in secret because Boehner is working with the Democrats and liberals and progressives to attack anyone who would resist their plans to lessen the life, liberty, and property of the great citizens of our nation. If he were a real patriot he would not be acting the way that he is.
According to Breitbart, the plan to get rid of Boehner is quite detailed. The full plan, including the documents, is linked here. Here are some of the highlights:
...Those members and staffers requested anonymity from Breitbart News at this time to prevent retaliation from Boehner similar to what happened to those four members who were purged from their powerful committee assignments a few weeks ago. Their expressed concern is that if Boehner knew who they were, his adverse reaction toward them would be much more brutal than losing committee assignments, such as a primary challenge in 2014 by a leadership-sponsored candidate.Boehner has emerged as a threat to future security and prosperity for our nation, and when people emerge that oppose liberty and property rights, they must be replaced and new leaders elected.
According to the plan as drafted, the first step is to re-establish the election of the Speaker of the House by secret ballot, rather than by a public roll call vote. That’s because the members who would oppose Boehner, if there ended up not being enough votes to achieve their desired result or if Boehner scared via threat or coaxed via prize some of the opposition into voting for him, would be sitting ducks for retaliation in the near future....
...The second step of the circulated plan would require enough GOP members to band together and vote for somebody other than Boehner as Speaker. Since Illinois Democratic Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., has resigned his position, there will be 434 voting members on January 3. For someone to win the Speaker election, they’d need to secure 217 votes – or a majority of everyone voting.
Since there are 233 Republicans heading into the next Congress, only 17 Republicans would be needed to unseat Boehner. The House would continue having multiple elections throughout the day on January 3 until it agreed upon a new Speaker...
...Those planning to oust Boehner know that there will likely be multiple elections taking place next. They expect to have a series of elections in the House throughout the day on January 3, as they’re pretty sure they won’t get a new Speaker on the first try.
If Boehner loses on that first election try, he’ll be battered. For now, this is a leaderless movement – an “Anybody but Boehner” charge. But after that first secret ballot election wouldn’t have earned him his speakership back, those planning this ouster expect viable alternatives to emerge at that point.
One of those alternatives, they think, will unite the party and take the speakership.
If these conservatives aren’t successful in removing Boehner – but get close – they expect Boehner to cave and give them several concessions. Those concessions would include “that Boehner should move for it himself to decentralize power to the members, re-establishing trust and his legitimacy as the leader of the party.”...
Let's overthrown Speaker Boehner. Contact your Congressman, post on facebook, spread the word on your blogs and twitter accounts, email friends and family, make some phone calls, and let's get rid of this guy and replace him with someone better.
UPDATE: It appears that Boehner survived the challenge to his leadership by several votes. Even newly elected Congressman Kerry Bentivolio of Michigan, who was supposed to be some sort of tea party radical, fell meekly into line and quietly voted to support Boehner, demonstrating that even though what the House has been doing lately has not been working lately, most politicians right now in office would rather go along to get along rather than change our system for the better. Bold, bright, strong conservative values and beliefs lost out today to cold hard politics as usual, and your member of Congress should be held accountable for voting this so.
