    Washington, We Have A Problem

    This is Michigan calling......One of several states

    Due to the severity of this very distinct example of poor judgement and deception, which will have a monumental impact on the unfolding history of Michigan- to say nothing of America, I want to repeat my call for the dismissal of House Speaker John Boehner.

    And here's why.

    Nancy Pelosi was removed from the Speaker's position by the American people via the 2010 elections. Not only did almost all of the Republican voters show up at the polls, but a tremendous number of Independent voters did as well.

    The resulting GOP landslide was correctly observed to be a mandate from the American people, and in particular, a very clear and undeniable demand- to stop Obamacare.

    By removing the Democrat majority and replacing it with a Republican majority, John Boehner was able to ascend to the Speaker's position and remove any financial support for Obamacare, as well as be a staunch defender against frivolous and wasteful spending desired by the Obama Regime.

    Since that time, and under his direction, we have seen gaffs and losses- stacked one upon another. And the wins? Scant- if any.

    Fast-forward nearly 3 yrs to where we now face our very last opportunity to stop Obamacare implementation.

    It's destructive requirements and attacks on our privacy, freedom, and economic well-being are so well-known now that even it's staunchest original supporters on the Left are calling for it's demise. From the Democrat perspective, you know that you've got tremendous problems when the unions are very publicly bailing out on you because of Obamacare. Add to that group the Silicon Valley crowd, the Google heads, and the Electronic Freedom Frontier- all bastions of the well-healed, very vocal and powerful liberal grass roots, and Obamacare should be all but dead on arrival.

    And in the face of all this, what is Speaker Boehner and his leadership team's approach, on the eve of providing a budgetary tool that could satisfy a wide swath of the Left, the mainstream Republicans AND their very active, very vocal, and very influential Conservative grass roots?

    They conjure up a trick rule that, had it not been found out and publicized widely, would have allowed the Senate to sever a clause in the Continuing Resolution that denies funding for the implementation of Obamacare, which would also allow the Senate to pass the remainder of the CR while simultaneously providing funding for Obamacare- without having to send it back to the House for approval.

    Instead, it would go straight to the President's desk for a signature, and along with it, the guaranteed arrival of Obamacare- which by all accounts, is the most damaging, detrimental, life-changing law ever to be dropped on the lives and freedom of Americans, both now and forever more.

    This attempt by the Speaker was pure, unadulterated deception. Furthermore, it was an act in complete opposition to the sentiments and desires of those who voted to stop Obamacare, which he never would've enjoyed the power of his position had this issue been viewed differently.

    So who is it that Boehner fears if Obama chooses to shut down the govt as a result of a lack of funding for Obamacare? The wrath of Democrat voters in 2014? Republican voters? The 2010 Independent voters who sided with the Republicans in an effort to stop Obamacare? An angry and malicious press intent on the destruction of the Republican majority- for honoring the will of the people?

    Apparently so, but the media can't hide the fact that all of those voters will be protected against the ravages of Obamacare, nor will the continuing revelations of it's cancerous rules, regs, and detrimental effects on jobs stop coming to light.

    Our Framers were deathly afraid of having a despot, tyrant, or self-anointed King take control of our govt, so they made sure the People's House held the formidable power of the purse as a defense against exactly what we find ourselves faced with today.

    And yet, Boehner ignores that, ignores his fiduciary responsibility to check the tyrannical efforts of liberalism in America, and in fact, engages in attempts to deceive the American people while enabling the very policies he was given the power- and the undeniable mandate, to prevent. He has been caught red-handed aiding and abetting the very power he is constitutionally required to put in check. And now, after nearly 3 yrs in his position, has a record of his accomplishments and failures- and just recently showed his ability to once again display his poor judgment with that thick-headed and outlandish support for Obama attacking Syria.

    Collusion appears to be his strong suit, not negotiation or principled leadership on behalf of America. And to think he's third in line of succession to the Presidency.

    In all actuality, John Boehner is an enemy of the domestic variety. Remove him immediately! Remove him now, before he sells us out again.

    While I like the idea of bouncing the dishonorable (not deserving said title) Weeper from RINOhio, - a long shot -  I have yet to hear of any in the grassroots organize a contingency Leadership Pledge from their representatives stating they will not elect Boehner, nor Cantor, as Speaker, so this never happens again.  A citizens last chance bartering with the incumbents in Michigan, for those who still see the GOP as worthwhile opposition if you will.

    Place Benishek, Bentivolio, Camp, Huizenga, Miller, Rogers, Upton, and Walberg, on notice right now that if they choose not to sign the pledge that your TEA/Liberty coalitions/groups will stand down their votes for them in 2014.  Take the message of disdain for their actions directly to your individual Representative.  Ferchrissakes, put some teeth to y'all's barks, already!

    Same hold true for Lansing with Sneaker Bolgergeist*.  It was far worse what State Reps. condoned - unanimously (Despicable) - than the resistance shown by a few in D.C.

    Elections have consequences, if voters stop consenting to the elected class' bullsh!t.


    bol-ger-geist |ˈbōlgərˌgīst|
    an apparition Republican or wraith principled Republican Speaker of Michigan's House supposedly accountable for fiscal responsibility such as proper roll of government and promoting individuals ability to keep more of the money they earn.

    ORIGIN indistinguishable Michigan Democratic Party: from RINO Bolgergeist, from Bolger 'leadership' + Geist 'ghost.'

    CS,I was thinkin the exact same thing, and thought about the resistance from the pols. Much to my chagrin, on two separate occasions in the last month and a half or so, Justin Amash- of all people, spoke in defense of Boehner in public forums. And my frustration level skyrocketed as he spoke of numerous problems the GOP faced in the House- because almost every single one he mentioned was a direct result of Boehner's innate ability to be a bonehead.
    So, as I thought about getting Bentivolio to sign his death sentence in exchange for getting my support, I figured the best I could do was get a private promise to refuse to support Boehner. And we all know what that is worth.
    The Speaker is incredibly powerful, and there is a major fear factor that is pervasive in the House. Our best hope IMO, is to have a trusted entity from outside the House willing to reach out to each Rep, promise their confidence, and count noses against Boehner. Believe it or not, while in DC back in May, I asked the head of the Heritage Foundation's House Advocacy group about the odds of ousting the Speaker, and much to my surprise was told that he thought Boehner was doing a very good job. Go figure. When speaking about this privately with Amash, he shared that there were many who could probably get the job, but were even worse than Boehner. This is an uphill battle, at best, and considering the spin on his attempt to deceive America from Conservative talking heads, I'm just not feeling any hope here.

    I'm not certain this comment exactly dovetails with your post, but the American people are unbelievably uniformed about this country and its direction.  Even people who are truly interested in the country's direction fall for that same sham over and over again.

    People think in terms of Democrat and Republican, in right versus left, in claimed conservativism versus progressivism, without paying much attention to the details.

    This is how a buffoon like Boehner can declare himself a conservative (more than enough to appease those who identify as conservatives) while at the same time pursuing an agenda that is clearly centrist.  The same can be said for John McCain and Mitt Romney (the GOPs last two presidential candidates who steered themselves to the right until the nomination was locked up) Lindsay Graham (along with McCain the GOPs two most easily identified Senators) and more locally, to Rick Snyder and Randy Richardville who might not suggest that they themselves are conservative, but with that (R) behind their names being easily enough to cement themselves to the sweet spot of traditional Republican voters who will, regardless of their dissatisfaction with "RINOs" vote for the R.  

    We have an establishment Republican party that is more concerned with its ability to hold on to power than it is with returning this country to a foundation in liberty.  That's why Karl Rove inserts his millions into elections that support centrists over tea party candidates.  That's why big money donors across the country give their money to the nearly fossilized John McCain in his juggernaut campaign against J.D. Hayworth.  Rove needs relevance!  McCain needs his ego stroked! Graham needs historical relevance!  Christie needs liposuction! (A cheap shot, I admit, but I'm on a roll.)

    George Washington would kick the ass of every one of these career politicians.  Washington turned down what would have been a royal station.  He could have been the King George of the new America.  Yet, in my opinion, he made the greatest decision ever made by any American president--he would not make any attempt at a third term.  He would honor the American inspiration of "citizen legislator" and would forgo royalty.

    Not Boehner.  Not McCain.  Not Graham.  Not Conyers or that old fart Dingell either, for what it's worth.  These folks are our ruling overlords and, whatever you believe, they think their individual standings within the halls of government vastly outweighs the principle standings within the Constitution that they were elected to pursue.  

    I'm not so certain that we aren't banging our heads against the wrong wooden door.  A small vocal minority of conservatives (including myself) has to begin to enlighten those GOP members who continue to robotically vote (R) instead of Conservative (capitalization not a typo, thank you very much.)

    These fools will NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER put a smaller government on their agenda because the smaller government they actively spurn would necessarily reduce the importance of even smaller minded career politicians with grand designs on their wonderful legacies. Back off people, there's a Britannica entry to solidify!

    Now, more in the flavor of the post...Boehner truly does suck.  Yet, the republicans in his district keep reelecting him, and the house GOP keep reelecting him as their leader.  A certain biological reflection rears its head here and I must point out that there is always a first lemming off the cliff.  

    The good news is that we won't be the first to hit the bottom.
