Boehner, McCarthy, Cantor join forces with Left to defeat conservatives?

There is so much talk about the Republican Party unifying and focusing on winning the upcoming 2014 midterm elections. However, establishment pundits lay blame at the feet of the so-called “right wing” for hindering the success of the Republican Party. Many seem to have forgotten the very dedicated and focused conservative grassroots movement that enabled the GOP to become the majority in the House of Representatives. The phenomenon called the Taxed Enough Already (Tea) Party has since 2009 redefined the arena of politics in America — creating angst and enemies.

We now know the Obama administration utilized the Internal Revenue Service to destroy the Tea Party effect in the 2012 election cycle after their resounding success in 2010. As we draw closer to the 2014 cycle, we are beginning to see the military maneuver known as the “double envelopment.”

Redstate.com editor Erick Erickson reports that the assault on the conservative movement is not just from the Left:

“Next weekend, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, and twenty-five other members of Congress are flying to Amelia Island, Florida to collaborate with a group dedicated to defeating conservatives in Congress. The Republican Main Street Partnership’s offshoot “Main Street Advocacy” is hosting the event at the Ritz Carlton on Amelia Island. Steve LaTourette, a liberal Republican former Congressman from Ohio, is the face in front of the group. LaTourette is good friends with John Boehner. Behind the scenes, LaTourette’s group is funded by the vast left-wing conspiracy. According to an email inviting people to the event, “People that are attending have donated $5,000 to the PAC.”

We have a term for this in the military – it’s called the “circular firing squad.”

Erickson points out that LaTourette’s group has received money from left-leaning unions, George Soros back organizations, and a major Democrat contributor.

The Mainstreet Partnership has multiple offshoots all housed on the 6th floor of a 7th Street office in Washington, D.C. Together, the groups — including Main Street Advocacy — want to, in the words of their backers, “bolster our incumbents who are under attack from the far right, and ensure that we hold on to seats represented by pragmatic Republicans that we would otherwise loose if there was an ultra-conservative in the general runoff.”

It’s difficult to trust the center-right side of the political spectrum, especially when you read something such as this.

So can it be true, that next weekend, LaTourette is luring Boehner, McCarthy, Cantor and twenty-five others to the Ritz in Amelia Island to shake hands and collaborate with the very donors intent on defeating not just conservatives, but Republicans?

I hope it’s not the case. But if it is, I am reminded of the movie “Braveheart” where Scottish nobles betray their own kindred Scots to the English King Edward for their own personal gain and wealth.

In the end, what succeeded was freedom, liberty, and not the elitism of a few.

Allen, your reference from ‘Braveheart’ regarding nobles being bought off by the enemy is spot-on.

Can we have the list?

Yep, lets get the list and go to work. Boehner must go!

I think we need to identify his replacement. If Boehner goes and Cantor gets the Speakership, we are no better off. I have heard that Jim Jordan may go for the job. That would be a huge improvement. I would like Gohmert, but he doesn’t get as much respect because he is plain-spoken.

Guess we can at least start with these 3!! Add McConnell, McCain, Graham…. to that as well..

Add Kevin Brady. These guys are poison and must be removed from office. It’ all about them and their big donors. We will get Amnesty the same way they did the debt limit. They will bring it to a vote and let the Democrats pass it with the help of a few very RINOs.

Yes, sadly the pro-Status Quo GOP Establishment, ie. the America-KILLING Status Quo, and the DC POWER structure it supports, is more important to the GOP establishment, than the TRUE Conservative representation that *WE The People* CLEARLY want …. This is my assessment of what lies ahead this midterm season … it is rather severe toward the GOP Establishment, I’m afraid … The good thing is this: Tea Partier/Conservative Grassroots in America are more wise to the GOPe’s subterfuge, their obfuscation and their perfidy than ever before… but the challenge …… We know to expect all 3 of the afore-mentioned, during… Read more »

Have you seen all the FBI raids on the democrats? It’s all over Breitbart. Maybe they should investigate Boehner, McCarthy, and Cantor also.

You are too kind in describing these frauds as “center right”, Col West. This is so typical of these slimy corporatist sellouts. They care more about the preservation of the status quo and stuffing their bank accounts than they do about their oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution. I’d like to know the names of the other 25 turncoats who attend so they can be exposed to their constituents.

The_Patriot

They are Rinos, turncoats, traitors. They lack the morals and integrity that they campaigned on to get the office to begin with. They are obviously only in it for the money and power that comes with the office. Publishing their names will get them out of office in the next elections

In other words the RINO’s are forming their own attack on Republicans meaning we now will have a third party system at work. Now we have to determine who’s a friend of the people and who’s an enemy…..Obviously those named above are enemies of the people…..Democrats in RINO clothes….

Why are any of you surprised? The last thing any of the people in Washington want is an informed governing body that is held accountable to the people. At the very least all republican attendees damn sure need their asses voted out of office.

If the House of Bush type “Republicans” succeed in their alliance with the Left, to stop the Tea Party and the Constitutionist Right, at all costs, then it may be time to do to the GOP what long ago the new Republican party did to the Whigs. Break away, form a party that stands on its own, and crush the now clearly demarcated opposition.

When are the other Republicans/Conservatives going to vote him out as Speaker?

gun_nut

When we demand it. I hear Jim Jordan might seek the job. He would be a huge improvement.

Carol Chadbourne

Probably never because they do not want Pelosi getting the gavel back, at any cost…. which I have agree to with because, I think she’s going for a mental breakdown. MO

Darla Buckland

They are not going to vote him out as speaker. They came close right after the election but somehow missed.

gun_nut

A number of Reps said they would have voted against Boehner if there was a clear alternative. This time I think there are two or three lining up. I heard Jim Jordan might challenge him.

Hey Darla, how are you this evening? We can only hope, but
I had heard on the radio this week that a group of them had started again and others were joining. I haven’t heard anything else, but that does not mean I didn’t miss it.

Boehnor represents the next district from me. I don’t get to vote there, but I am close to his office.

And with that headline, I must bid Lt. Col. West “goodbye and good luck”. That was over the top, unnecessary, and inaccurate. I can no longer support West in any of his future endeavors. It was great while it lasted but he’s gone off the rails now.

May I ask ‘Why’ , patch??? I just think he says what’s on his mind and he’s not a ‘dumb’ person, but straight forward…what am I missing here?

The notion that Boehner and Cantor would “join forces with the left” to defeat “conservatives” is just plain nuts, that’s why. Boehner put up over $300,000 of his own money funding anti-establishment tea party candidates (including Allen West and Tim Scott when Scott was running for his House seat in 2010). Cantor pitched in over $200,000 toward the same end. The notion that they are going to join forces to prevent moving the House farther to the right is just boggling. More so because House seat elections are extremely local. The national party plays very little role in House elections.… Read more »

So you really believe that “BONER”,(etux) is aligned with the Conservative Republicans??? He has been on his KNEES for the Democrap leadership ever since Barry took office in ’09. ANYONE who is too blind to see that is part of the problem!!!!!

Boehner, McCarthy, Cantor. Remember their names, vote them out and anybody like them. They are traitors to the “true” Republican party. They donn’t deserve re election.

Carol Chadbourne

I just don’t get Boehner….is he is or is he not….doublespeak on the rise. Just can not figure him out…Graham was easy to figure out….so we are doing our best to have a female named Mace (?) take his seat. I’m going to call Boehner’s office and ask him WTH is going on…well, his assistant anyway. But, it’s a SURE thing that we don’t want Pelosi wielding the gavel again, in the House…got to get to the bottom of this, before I whine anymore about it.

If you hired someone to do a job that they said they were qualified to do but, turns out that they didn’t get the job done you would think that they had either lied about their qualifications or simply lied to you because they never really wanted to roll up their sleeves and do the work. In either case, those should be grounds for dismissal. Why continue paying someone who isn’t doing the work you asked them to do? Simple. You wouldn’t. You’d fire them. Or in this case, primary their azz…

I, along with most posters here, agree that the RINOs must be stopped. But how do we get the folks who claim to be conservative Republicans to vote these a holes out. I have talked and talked until I’m blue in the face trying to get some of them to just look at what the lib Republicans are doing, but apparently it falls on deaf ears. I’m afraid apathy reigns amongst these folks. I read most conservative news letters for some guidance on how to motivate these folks, but all I have read so far is exactly what we all… Read more »

I have been pretty much “sitting on the fence” re John Boehner…but, after reading all these posts, I’ve about decided he is NOT working for us…anymore than McCain, Graham or a guy I can never get the name straight….I think it’s McConnell or Connelly. Can someone straighten me out on that…I think he’s from KY….?????

His name is Mitch McConnell and areal piece of work. I believe the 25 or so republicans should have a bullseye on their backs now. The closer the elections become the easier it is to spot our dear Rino’s that need to be removed from office. I like you and so many others want to change the Gop back to when it’s was for conservatives and not the pond scum that currently is the majority!!!

It’s called “political corruption”. These are the “professional politicians” that lie and double-cross the very people who put them in office. They are in public office to enrich themselves and secure their hold on power any way the can. They have no standards or ethics other than “self-preservation”! In the case of most republicans, they are known as “R.I.N.O.S.”. We have way too many of these “backstabbers” still clinging to power. The time to throw them out on their “assets”, is the upcomming primary elections across the country. Know who they are, and support only true conservatives. The G.O.P. needs… Read more »
