• 5th Amendment Doesn’t Apply Here

    Recently I inquired with John Boehner’s office regarding the Obama Administration’s assertion that it is legal for the White House to order drone strikes against citizen’s of the United States. This is the reply that I received:

    “Dear Jason:

    Thank you for contacting me. It is good to hear from you.

    On February 4, 2013, NBC News reported that it obtained a Department of Justice memo that defines the “legal framework for considering the circumstances in which the U.S. government could use lethal force in a foreign country outside the area of active hostilities against a U.S. citizen who is a senior operational leader of al-Qa’ida or an associated force of al-Qa’ida[.]”

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-MI) released a statement with which I agree. In his statement Chairman Rogers said:

    When an individual has joined al-Qaida – the organization responsible for the murder of thousands of Americans – and actively plots future attacks against U.S. citizens, soldiers, and interests around the world, the U.S. government has both the authority and the obligation to defend the country against that threat.

    Thank you again for contacting me with your thoughts. Please don’t hesitate to inform me of your concerns in the future. To sign up for email updates, I invite you to visit my website at http://johnboehner.house.gov.

    Sincerely,

    John A. Boehner
    Member of Congress”

    So basically, if the White House, Mike Rogers, and John Boehner decide that a citizen needs to be killed then it’s ok. No due process, no trial by jury, nothing of the sort. The White House has provided no evidence in a US court of law that these individuals had joined AlQaida. For all we know, this was a political enemy of the White House.

    Boehner is as bad as Obama at trampling the Constitution. Our own Congressman, let alone one of the most powerful men in Washington as Speaker of the House is complicit in this administration’s unlawful and unethical behavior.

    John Boehner professes to be a conservative, but every chance he gets he demonstrates the fact that he is a big government liberal masquerading as a conservative. A true limited government conservative would have excercised the power of the legislative branch at minimum.

    This is a slippery slope as drone strikes are now accepted if they happen to Americans in Yemen or other Middle East countries, what about when they start happening here at home. Will Boehner speak up then? I doubt it.

  • Boehner Helped to Destroy Grass Roots

    Don’t forget what John Boehner did at the Republican National Convention when establishment leadership wanted to change rules of nominating delegates to make sure grass roots people could never bring a Ronald Reagan type to prominence without establishment approval.

    In this key rule change designed to block out grass roots people forever, John Boehner read a pre-determined outcome of the vote from a teleprompter. That’s right. Regardless of the vote’s outcome, Boehner was determined to rob the grass roots of any ability to nominate a true conservative for President from the ground up.

    The insanity was captured on video, and explained here. Watch, share and pledge to fire John Boehner!

  • Boehner’s “Purge” of Conservatives

    One of the things that sealed many people’s opinion that John Boehner should be fired is when he purged US House of Representatives committees of the very people most likely to tackle America’s fiscal problems.

    True budget hawks like Justin Amash, Tim Huelskamp and David Schweikert were removed from their positions on the Budget and Financial Services Committees where expenditures and appropriations are most hotly debated.

    This begged the question, why?

    Why would Boehner remove the most fiscally responsibly Congressmen from the very place where they can do the most good? Is it because Boehner has no desire to actually cut spending and address the big problems? Is it because Boehner needed “allies” on those committees to move his agenda forward?

    Was it just punishment for not supporting his agenda? We don’t know, but we can be sure that Boehner’s decisions to remove these men from their positions had more to do with politics and less to do with principle.

    Isn’t it time we had principled leadership in Washington DC?

    If you think so – pledge to fire Boehner HERE and pass this site along to others, and make sure they pledge to fire Boehner as well.

    Below is a video interview with Congressman Justin Amash, saying: GOP leadership is out step with America. We agree!

  • Pledge to Fire John Boehner?

    Simple question – will you pledge to fire John Boehner?

    Everyone likes to complain, but very few people find solutions to their problems.

    We think that a solution to the lack of leadership in the Republican Party and the lack of principles in DC is to get rid of John Boehner.

    If you feel the same way, pledge to fire John Boehner HERE!
