Skip to comments.GOP REP: BOEHNER MAY 'TARGET' MORE CONSERVATIVES
Posted on 12/05/2012 2:22:54 PM PST by Bigtigermike
House Speaker John Boehner on Wednesday warned his House Republican conference against dissent from GOP leadership and threatened retaliation similar to that against the already-purged conservatives if anyone else breaks from his pack.
The Hill reports that, according to Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp, Boehner used his weekly GOP conference meeting to note that we [leadership] have punished four members, he claimed that it had nothing to do with their conservative ideology, but had to do with their voting patterns."
Huelskamp also said Boehner threatened there may be more folks that will be targeted and that Boehner told the caucus that we're watching all your votes.
Its unclear what criteria Boehner and GOP leadership plan to use in the weeks and months ahead. Boehner spokesman Michael Steel wouldnt provide specifics on what criteria or votes on which the Speaker is watching conservative Republicans.
Instead, when asked, Steel provided Breitbart News with the exact quote another Boehner spokesman gave two nights ago for a response to a completely different question. The Steering Committee makes decisions based on a range of factors, Steel said.

Is Boehner that stupid? Doesnt ones ideology determine their voting patterns?
he claimed that it had nothing to do with their conservative ideology, but had to do with their voting patterns."
Boehner needs to switch parties. He’s working for the Dems, might as well make it official.
If I were a member, I would leave Boehner’s caucus and see how he wins without the dissidents. Who needs Boehner or his worthless committees, for he has already surrendered to Obama?
More proof that the GOP is the Judenrat for the MarxoFascists.
If Conservatives want to survive - and I mean that literally - it’s time to divorce the Collaborators with the Enemy.
Conservatives are being purged politically now. History shows that shortly after such things occur - the targets of tyrants begin to be purged in other ways as well.
Prepare to Defend Yourselves.
Go to hell Boner!...You damn surrender monkey!
To the headline: we are surprised, why?
Threatening people with loss of power and privilege, marginalizing people’s voices, based on “failure to toe the Party Line”. Demanding lockstep voting.
The GOP has become the Democrats. Soon, like the dems, the pubbies will have a cadre of seatwarmers in the legislature whose job it is to vote the Party line.
I can’t wait to watch you lose your gavel, you crying coward.
Hey Butthead, you need to be watching OUR votes. RINOS ESAD!
and they will still demand that we vote for them
I see the GOP being wiped out in 2014
might as well
I couldn’t think of a more perfect name for this jack a$$.
GOP establishment = Vichy Republicans. Accord them all the respect they deserve.
The boy has offered him a position if that should happen.
I don’t know why Breitbart.com put scare quotes around the word target. Target is EXACTLY what Boehner is doing.
Target Boehner instead, call, fax, visit:
Washington, D.C. Office
1011 Longworth H.O.B.
Washington, DC 20515
(202) 225-0704 fax
The only people that can do anything about is Boner’s constituency. They need to vote this guy out once and for all.
I say why is everyone turning against Ryan when he succeeded in passing the most conservative budget in years?
That's not a small feat.
And why is every suddenly hero-worhipping 4 House reps who no one every heard of before this week?
If it were Michelle Bachmann I might take notice.
But who are these 4 and why does everyone automatically believe every word they say?
It would appear to be way past time to get a new Speaker.
Boehner needs to be primaried starting NOW!
I see the GOP being wiped out in 2014
We've seen our 'last' honest elections. It's all a rigged regime show now.
If history is repeating - it will not be just the GOP 'wiped out'.
Political purges are almost always followed by criminalization and REAL purges of people who do not bow to the State.
I contend history is repeating.
Prepare to defend yourselves.
Because they won’t stand against the traitorous GOP.
Ryan’s budget is as meaningless as the GOP.
If I recall correctly, even Ryan was surprised about that.
The only reason the "Ryan Plan" passed was that it was on the table at the time that Boehner needed a plan (any plan) to use as a bludgeon to hit Harry Reid with in the Senate. Boehner wanted the House to pass SOMETHING just to say that they passed a budget bill.
Ryan's plan was the low-hanging fruit at the time. Right place, right time. That's all.
BUMP for further info.
I was thinking just the other day about the difference between the Nazis and the Communists. The Communists were global socialists, and the Nazis were national socialists (hence the name nazionale socialista or however it was said in German. It seems to me that the Democrats are now our Communist party. They hate America, want to weaken it and force us to submit to the UN and other global oversight.
Republicans, on the other hand, stand for maintaining American supremacy in the world, but do not differ much from the Democrats in terms of the march towards socialism. Slower perhaps, but not much lately. They need a new name to describe their brand of socialism. The American brand of national socialism could perhaps be called "nashism" to distinguish it from Nazism, what with all the bad press and all.
Now, with that said, we need an American constitution and freedom party. Those words have been taken by minor parties that have their own issues. Maybe we can just make up a word, the way that car companies do, and go with that. "Freeper Party" is as good as any, it stands for a Free Republic. And we already have a web site. I hope Jim had the foresight to trademark "freeper" at some point in the last 15 years.
The only people The Boner is tough on are those in his own caucus. It’s bad enough he doesn’t have the ability, the resources or the courage to behave and act like a leader.
I say the GOP is going to prove they are worse than Vichy. They are Obama's Judenrat. And they WILL assist in the MarxoFascist regime's pogrom to annihilate Conservatives.
Hell, they have already begun.
You can e-mail as well.
Boehner is no better than Pelosi. It’s way beyond time to abandon the GOP-E and start a new national Conservative Party from scratch. Leave these hacks where they sit to rot...they’ll never win another election again with garbage like this going on.
Republicans shouldn’t act like the democrats. Period! If they do then they are different than them
This makes no sense whatsoever.
And the fact that the House passed this bill was a good thing. Not a bad thing. Even if it were to be changed later in conference (as every bill is) the rudiments were there.
I sent Speaker Boehner a letter saying that I would support his primary opponent and any democrat who runs against him.
I think you will find that he was just re-elected for the next session. Cool how they don't let the incoming reps have a voice.
FU Boehner. I cannot wait to toss you out on your drunk ass in 2014. Enjoy your last two years of this BS.
If Speaker Boehner was disciplining the nominally conservative Republicans to actually vote more conservative, then I’d applaud him. In other words, I don’t see anything wrong per se with enforcing party discipline. It’s how it’s used.
In fact, I admire Nancy Pelosi’s ability to keep her party in line on key (hard left) votes. She’s even managed to force some moderate Democrats to toe the line at the expense of their political careers. We should want Republicans to stick together in much the same way so long as their moving the political football to the right.
THAT’s the real problem! Mr. Boehner is NOT moving to the right. He’s capitulating for more big government.
Voting for the Ryan budget was acting like the Democrats?
Odd then that no Democrat voted for it.
What makes you say that people are turning on Ryan?
You can pimp for Boehner and the GOP-E all you want (like you’ve been doing on all the other related threads), but the fact of the matter is that Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy, Hensnarling, and even Ryan are right now threatening and punishing Conservative House members for maintaining TEA party principles and voting accordingly, and thus we are watching the final disintegration of the Republican Party.
However, they did not vote for his budget.
They are Ron Paul wannabees. No one ever heard of them before this week yet suddenly they are heroes? Very very odd.
Now is the time. Boehner must go
Can someone please run against him??
I contacted my Representative and asked him about it. He came across as clueless - but then again, he was just appointed to the House Ways and Means committee... so I’m sure he doesn’t want to rock the boat after that juicy appointment...
What a shame, since he was elected as a TEA Party candidate...
Boehner spokesman Michael SteelBoehner spokesman Michael Steel??
How very interesting.
Steel moved over to the other side and is now a lib commentator on MSNBC.
I had no idea he was still involved with the republicans, just thought he melted into the background after his affirmative action stint as head of the RNC.
The republicans put him in that position for the same reason they gave the election to Obama twice:
Catering to political correctness and "History"
So that's it. MSNBC has one of their guys speaking for Boehner. Figures.
