Speaker John Boehner
Sooner or later conservatives must make a stand against this kind of “leadership” lest standing for principle on any issue that is at variance with the Big Business agenda becomes a firing offense and the House Republican Conference is reduced to being nothing more than a collection of toadies for the billionaires who are the invisible hands behind Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Majority Whip Steve Scalise.
Capitol Hill's establishment Republican leaders put themselves in this mess, because back in December they wouldn’t fight for conservative principles and instead chose to worm their way out of the immediate crisis of funding the government by passing the hated “CRomnibus” so they could take off to their Christmas and holiday vacations, and avoid a potential government wide “shutdown” that fighting Obama’s amnesty then would have entailed. Did they ever plan to make good on own plan to stop Obama's unconstitutional amnesty?
All of Mitch McConnell’s maneuvering leads us once again to conclude that he has no intention of winning the fight against Obama’s unconstitutional “executive amnesty.” What McConnell really wants to do is get by this battle so he can get on to “governing” which, to him and his fellow establishment Republicans, means dispensing to their friends and special interests the largess extorted from producers by the welfare state.
This week Capitol Hill Republicans face two showdowns with President Obama and the Democrats that will either make or break their standing with grassroots limited government constitutional conservative voters – defunding Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty and the confirmation vote on Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch.
House Speaker John Boehner is raising the possibility that the Department of Homeland Security may shut down at month's end because of a budget impasse, and he's blaming Senate Democrats if that happens. Asked what if the department funding were to run out, Boehner said, "Well, then, Senate Democrats should be to blame. Very simply."
Echoing conservative arguments in favor of the House-passed appropriation that prohibits money being spent on Obama’s unconstitutional “executive amnesty” Boehner said he is “certainly” willing to let federal funding for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) expire this month if a congressional standoff that is threatening the agency’s appropriation continues.
House Speaker John Boehner said Wednesday that Senate Democrats should "get off their ass" and stop blocking a $40 billion Homeland Security bill that would derail President Obama's immigration programs.
Principled limited government constitutional conservative Rep. Steve King of Iowa has announced his decision not to vote for John Boehner's re-election as Speaker of the House saying he is convinced Congress will not be allowed to restore its Constitutional authority under John Boehner's Speakership and by refusing to do so, cannot call upon the courts to do so.
Our friend and one of the House of Representatives staunchest limited government constitutional conservatives, Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01), has made the decision to buck the status quo and challenge John Boehner in the race for House Speaker.

Brindenstine says Boehner "relinquished the power of the purse, and with it he lost my vote."
A new poll of Republican voters, released to a select group of media including CHQ, found the GOP base deeply distrustful of their existing congressional leadership Only 25 percent of GOP voters want to keep John Boehner as Speaker, 60 percent want Boehner replaced and 57 percent identify with the Tea Party movement.
In the wake of the shameful Steve Scalise racism scandal, his betrayal of conservative principles on spending and the CRomnibus, and his failure to fulfill his promise to fight Obama's unconstitutional executive amnesty leading conservatives, including CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie, talk radio host Mark Levin and FOX News personality Sean Hannity, are calling on House Republicans to replace Speaker Boehner with a committed limited government constitutional conservative. We urge you to join the fight! Tweet, Facebook and email a link to the "Fire Speaker Boehner" video, post and send the New Year's Resolution graphic and call your Representative at (1-866-220-0044) and demand that he or she oppose John Boehner's re-election as Speaker of the House.
A Senate GOP aide told Breitbart News that chaos would spread across Washington if Obama announces executive amnesty and the House passes an omnibus with no language blocking it. "There will be no Senate vote, because conservatives will burn down the Capitol," said the aide. He was, of course, speaking figuratively, but there's nothing figurative about the message conservatives have for Capitol Hill Republican leaders: Fight Or Be Complicit. CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE and SENATORS at 1-866-220-0044 TELL THEM TO STOP OBAMA'S UNCONSTITUTIONAL AMNESTY #FightOrBeComplicit
RED ALERT: Our friend Daniel Horowitz of Conservative Review just sent us this alert: Speaker John Boehner this afternoon recounted to the House Republican Conference that he told President Obama, “Mr. President, just give us one more chance to do this the right way. If we can't, then do what you gotta do.” Read that again. Boehner told the GOP conference behind closed doors that he told Obama he has the green light to shred our constitution and destroy our sovereignty if Republicans don’t do it through regular order.
