Conservative Challenger Becky Gerritson Calls Out GOP Establishment On Islamic Importation

Conservative congressional challenger Becky Gerritson has just issued a stinging challenge on the issue of Muslim immigration to her incumbent establishment Republican opponent Rep. Martha Roby (AL-2). Gerritson is right on target with her pledge to oppose Obama's "open arms" agenda and with her indictment of Martha Roby’s record of supporting Obama’s Islamic Importation Plan.

Conservative Becky Gerritson To Open Congressional Campaign HQ

Incumbent establishment Republican Rep. Martha Roby’s vote on the rule to bring the #ZombieBudget to the House floor means she owns the secret deals with Obama to increase spending and the debt ceiling and to burden our children and grandchildren with trillions of dollars of new Establishment Republican debt. If you want an end to “Show Votes” and to reestablish honesty in Congress we urge you to attend Becky Gerritson’s campaign headquarters open house in Wetumpka, Alabama on Monday, November 9.

Highway Bill Shows Conservatives Must Keep Speaker Ryan Honest

Far from being a new day, the highway bill looks like the same Big Government Republican snake oil of John Boehner presented by a somewhat more attractive and articulate huckster. Congress needs to hear from the grassroots that what we want is for Republicans to do what we sent them to Washington to do: Stop Obama's Liberal Transformation of America. Please sign the petition to let Paul Ryan know you want Republicans to concentrate on stopping Obama’s agenda, instead of giving him another gimmicky bailout of a failed spending program.

John Boehner’s Enablers Are Now Shocked At The Spending

Erick Erickson, RedState

All Barack Obama had to do was threaten a government shutdown and the leadership and their cheerleaders would cave. Republican leaders will not fight because they do not have to fight because they know that editorialists, pundits, and donors will pat them on the back and say “tough break.” Well, it is — for the country.

Daniel Webster still running against Paul Ryan for Speaker

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart

Unlike Ryan, Webster has very publicly articulated reforms he would make to the House GOP conference structure. Specifically, he told Breitbart News in a recent exclusive interview, he wants to spread power away from the Speaker’s office toward the membership of the House.

Boehner may be handing Republican nomination to Trump

Erick Erickson, Erickontheradio.com

Donald Trump wrote The Art of the Deal. Say what you will about the man, he knows how to negotiate. The Republican base is already livid with John Boehner and Boehner just handed Donald Trump a perfect opportunity to show how much better at negotiating he is than the rest of the Republicans.

Boehner-Obama Spending Deals Have Increased Debt $3,970,023,503,348.07

Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News

Ever since March 4, 2011, all federal spending has been authorized by laws that first passed a Republican-controlled House led by Boehner and then were signed by President Obama.

Speaker’s Race Still Wide Open – Just Say NO To Paul Ryan

Back in January, 25 Republicans voted against John Boehner and the number of those dissatisfied with the establishment Republican “leadership” of the House has only grown since then. For conservatives to win this fight your Representative needs to hear from you NOW on the phone and through social media and email. Here's how to contact your Representative to demand they vote for a principled limited government constitutional conservative, like Daniel Webster of Florida, for Speaker.

GOP Congress: A Vote for the Rule on the #ZombieBudget is a Vote for a Primary Challenge

Any Republican that votes to bring the #ZombieBudget to the Floor deserves a Primary election challenge. We urge you to call your Representative, the House switchboard is 1-866-220-0044, tell him or her you demand a NO vote on the rule to bring the #ZombieBudget to the House floor and an end to the secret deals with Obama to increase spending and the debt ceiling and burden our children and grandchildren with billions of dollars of new Establishment Republican debt.

Business as usual: Ryan taps lobbyist for COS

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart

Ryan’s decision to surround himself with lobbyists—hiring one as his chief of staff—could be a troubling signal that he’s going to operate just like Boehner did. Boehner’s affinity for lobbyists—something Ryan seems to be following—is something that earned him a reputation unlike any other Speaker in U.S. history.

Ted Cruz: Repealing Obamacare Isn't Complicated

Ted Cruz is right, and he has proven once again that he is the one guy on Capitol Hill conservatives can trust to always keep his word. Passing a full repeal of Obamacare and sending the bill to the President’s desk as Republicans promised during the 2014 midterm election isn’t complicated. All it takes is a credible argument and a spine, both of which are in short supply in the establishment Republican "leadership."

Establishment Republicans Walking Away From Full Obamacare Repeal

A one sentence repeal of Obamacare through the budget reconciliation bill should be an easy call for Republicans. They have the majority, they can ignore the recommendation of the Senate Parliamentarian if it goes against them, let the Senate vote on a favorable interpretation of the rules and forge forward – but that requires a credible argument and a spine, both of which are in short supply among establishment Republican “leaders” in Congress.

Paul Ryan Arrogantly Demands An End To Constitutional Government

What Paul Ryan announced to the House Republican Conference last night was a set of conditions under which he would accept the Speaker’s gavel that amount to discarding any pretense that the House of Representatives is “the Peoples’ House,” as in We the People, and to make it simply “Paul’s House.” Democracy and representative government are by their nature messy – and when politicians, like Paul Ryan, demand order and an end to dissention what they are really demanding is an end to democratic government.

Establishment Stalling Speaker Election Until They Are Guaranteed To Win

Stalling the vote to elect a new Speaker is all about those who have been wrecking the country keeping their power in Congress, and thwarting the will of We the People. And of course the establishment media – including what one might call the “conservative establishment” are right there covering for them. We urge you to join our effort to end the stalling and elect a conservative Speaker by signing our open letter to the House Republican Conference through this link. Or you can call your Representative – the House switchboard is 1-866-220-0044 – to tell them you want a conservative Speaker like Daniel Webster, not Boehner-lite, like Rep. Paul Ryan or Kevin McCarthy.

Paul Ryan stars as John Boehner’s weak sister

Erick Erickson, Erickontheradio.com

The hysteria in Washington among elite Republican pundits who long ago decided to put party ahead of principle has hit peak condescension. Paul Ryan apparently cannot get the Speakership in his own right, but must be bullied and begged into taking it while at the same time is so sensitive and weak he might be bullied by some conservative Congressmen.

Are You And Your Conservative Friends In The Battle To Elect A Conservative Speaker?

In advance of the election to replace establishment Republican John Boehner as Speaker of the House, 55 conservative leaders from across America signed an open letter to the House Republican Conference. Entitled “Vision For New Conservative Leadership” the letter sets forth the minimum expectations conservatives have of the new post-Boehner House Republican leadership.  You can add your name to the list by signing the open letter to the House Republican Conference through this link. If you are active in a conservative organization that has not joined the battle we urge you to get your organization involved in the fight to elect a conservative Speaker of the House TODAY.

Of Course Paul Ryan Would Push Amnesty Through Congress, But There’s More…

Along with Paul Ryan’s personal qualities and capabilities comes an unfortunate willingness to destroy the quality of life for millions of American families by advancing the unlimited immigration policies advocated by the establishment Republican Party’s corporate paymasters.

Conservatives: Don’t Get Suckered Into Backing A “Compromise” Speaker Who Is Boehner-Lite

We strongly urge conservatives to stand fast behind principled limited government constitutional conservative Daniel Webster of Florida, and not allow themselves to be suckered into backing a “compromise” candidate for Speaker. Conservatives who fold and back a “compromise” Speaker will own the results of that Speaker’s policies. And this is particularly true of Paul Ryan, who is as bad or worse than John Boehner and Kevin McCarthy.

Becky Gerritson: Exactly The Kind Of New Leader We Need In Congress

Becky Gerritson has issued a statement that should be a clarion call to every conservative thinking about running for Congress; "I am pleased that we will not have an unacceptable choice in Kevin McCarthy forced upon us.  My hope is that, in the days ahead, a true conservative will win out in the Speaker's race. However, that new Speaker will not have the support he or she needs to lead our Party forward- strong and unified- unless we bolster the ranks of true conservatives in Congress."

Viguerie to NewsMax: Grassroots “White-Hot” Over Lack Of Leadership In GOP

The House Republican Conference meets today to nominate a candidate for Speaker. We urge you to call your Representative (the House Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to tell him or her that we conservatives are watching how they vote and that we demand they vote for a conservative, such as Daniel Webster, for Speaker.
