I rarely check when a person joins FR, but the post below yours congratulated the guy on his 15th year on FR (12/5/97), so I just happen to check the guy above that - you - and see that you joined on the very same day as me: 9/10/98. We’re Freep twins!

Please make this true. I want to see Boehner hammered into oblivion, although it won't happen. What a discrace to conservative principles.

Like I've been saying folks: Protect your assets and live your life since (not like) there is no tomorrow for our once glorious Republic. It's over.

There will be blood. RINO purges will now be conducted as we rid ourselves of these progressives who now evolve toward Obama fascism.

Before McCarthy gets strung up, I’d like to know a little more, because he is been a reliable conservative vote (even though he is from California).

I guess I’m surprised that that Breitbart’s writers are surprised that McCarthy had a hand in this. I mean, party Whips *do* tend to be the guys who keep tabs on individual members, and dole out party discipline to an extent (though less so in our system than in the UK, etc.) It makes sense that he would be the one Boehner went to for drawing up the list.

Not saying I *like* it, mind you. Just sayin’ that it isn’t surprising McCarthy was the go to guy here.

DO NOT be fooled by any “scorecard” crap.
The RINOs wanted to get rid of ALL the Conservatives and TEA party people in a policy of ‘rule or ruin’.

It appears they will get both.

It’s interesting to know about McCarthy, but IMO the list could have been drawn up, instigated by Mickey Mouse, Goofy, or Donald Duck, and not have made a difference as it was Boehner that used it.

Boehner IMO has to be ousted from that position as Speaker, and the RINO’s rather than the Conservatives have to be neutralized politically, or sent where they belong to the other side of the aisle.

And he set up the “private inauguration with no photos or recordings” back when 0bama took the oath of office.

Not controversy, RINO idiocy. The only reason the GOP has a majority in the House, and therefore Boehner is Speaker and not Minority Leader, is that the Tea Party drove re-taking the House in 2010. Boehner and RINOs are attacking the very people who put them back in power in the first place.

If 16 repubublicans voted against Boner, there would be 16 democrats who would vote for him. They’re all in this together.

As for the whip, “Kramer” said the whip is the guy who actually whips the other congressmen if they don’t vote the way they’re told”. He must have been right.

There are more RINOs than conservatives or TEA Party representatives. Always, always remember and never forget, contrary to the lies they tell in public and the lip service they pay to conservatives, the elite establishment Republican wing of the ruling political class hates, detests, loathes and despises conservatives and it began with Ronald Reagan, who they saw as an embarrassment to the GOP. Their candidates, Dole, Bush (father and son), McCain and Romney are demonstrably Progressives. If they ran on their beliefs, they would have just as much trouble being elected as a Liberal DemocRat does when they tell the truth about what they stand for (Humphrey and Mondale come to mind).

People always seem to give a Cantor a pass for some reason. I always saw him as a snake-oil salesman who was addicted to talking points, but uncommitted to the ideas Republicans claim to stand for.

Conservatives have left the GOP, which is WHY they lost the election to Obama.Do not believe all the other prognostications about why the GOP lost. What we saw was a GOP without the unified, synchronized support of conservatives. Romney never even met once with the Southern Baptist Conference, where he easily could have organized a million votes or so.

The GOP thought it could win without conservatives. They were sadly mistaken, and tried their same old lip service double speak designed to keep conservatives on board, thinking that yet again conservatives would
show up and help get out the vote. They did not.

Now RINOs like Boehner think that they can get the job done by purging conservatives from committees.This will either underwhelm America by providing ineffectual governance, or cause conservative Americans to abstain from voting until they have their own representative party.

McCarthy wants to get rid of the grass roots voice and surrender the GOP to progressive Republicans who know far better than the unwashed masses they happen to represent?
Well that approach worked well in the Nov. election didn’t it? Looooooooooosers and surrender monkeys. Thats all the GOP has without its conservatives.

The Venona papers proved McCarthy was essentially right, even if his own personal flaws allowed him to go too far (probably out of frustration and being demonized from the get-go), and
make some charges and name some names who were “innocent”.
Not just Venona, but tons of other scholarship proved Communist infiltration at the highest levels of government.
It was,needless to say, FDR , his worldview,and the choices he made, that made that possible.

FR began 2/97, so let's make original Freepers of that year as
old as the world's oldest people, or 105. So 7 years would
be equivalent to 1 year as a Freeper (just like dogs!).
This makes old Laz a decrepit 105, but hosepipe and me are a sprightly 98.

For years,the mediocre SS Officer Reinhardt Heydrich collected his stack of index cards listing all those disloyal to the Nationalist Socialist agenda...waiting until he rose high enough in the party ranks so that he could at last prove his devotion to the ideology by ordering the purge of those on his lists.

The diference between Heydrich and Boner being?

One never cried.
