John Boehner

The Magic Number Is 218

The reality is that there are a lot more than 40 to 50 House Republicans who want to do the right thing – the majority of House Republicans have simply been bamboozled and intimidated into believing that conservatives are a minority, when in fact we are the majority. That's why grassroots principled limited government constitutional conservatives must call their Representative and demand they oppose the election of another establishment Speaker, like Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, and vote for a conservative, like Rep. Daniel Webster of Florida, for Speaker. The House switchboard is 1-866-220-0044 - call now!

Rep. Charles Dent: A RINO in Search of a Primary Opponent

"Republican" Rep. Charles Dent (PA-15) made clear in an interview with CNN he doesn’t want a Republican-controlled Congress – he wants a bipartisan governing majority that will keep spending, and maintain its power by engaging in lies and show votes. It is time conservatives ran a real Republican against Charles Dent, one who will fight for conservative principles, such as reining in the spending, deficit and debt that are destroying our economy, and most importantly, committing to vote for a Republican for Speaker.

Iran Nuclear Weapons Deal A “Go” Corker and McConnell Betray America One More Time

Rather than take the path outlined by our friends Andy McCarthy and Ted Cruz to leave the sanctions in place, thanks to yesterday’s vote – forced for no reason by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell – McConnell and Corker have effectively given the Iranian nuclear weapons program the go ahead and hobbled the next (hopefully conservative) President who might have been expected to try to undo the vast damage to our national security Bob Corker, Mitch McConnell and Barack Obama have inflicted.

A full-scale revolt against House Speaker Rep.

Ronald Reagan, Ted Cruz, and the Tea Party at Five

Ronald Reagan built his coalition by taking all the discontents within the Republican Party and molding them into a coherent conservative ideology and a winning coalition that defeated the Republican establishment in the primaries.
