Boehner is the Chain that Binds Conservatives

Self-proclaimed Conservative John Boehner (R-OH) is the Speaker of the House. Many Conservatives have questioned whether or not Boehner is a bona fide Conservative or a part of the Republican in Name Only (RINO) crowd. RINOs can Center-Left to Center-Right but definitely not committed to the entirety of Conservative principles that have been a part of the Republican Party Platform for some time. In Boehner’s case he has taken the GOP Establishment line that the Tea Party Movement needs to be minimized if not downright ostracized from the Republican Party. If the Republican Establishment has their way the removal of the Tea Party will mean we will have to come up with a new acronym representing the present day RINO. Maybe something like Republican Establishment Party Only (REPO). Or maybe something like Republican Elitist Party Only (REPO). You get the point, no true Conservatives are a part of the GOP.

 

Now if Boehner and his Establishment buddies’ war on the Tea Party is not bad enough here is a thought that should make you want to flush Boehner and the Republican Establishment down the political toilet. Retired Lieutenant Colonel and former Representative Allen West wonders if the Speaker is helping Obama cover-up Benghazigate.

 

No matter how much it might hurt in 2016, it is time for Conservatives and Tea Partiers to form a new Political Party to give American voters an opportunity to side with the Conservative vision to return the Original Intent of the Constitution which includes less government and fair taxes.

EXCLUSIVE–ALLEN WEST QUESTIONS IF BOEHNER, CANTOR HELPING COVER UP BENGHAZI

Former Rep. Allen West (R-FL), a leader in the conservative movement and retired Lt. Colonel of the United States Army, told Breitbart News that he thinks House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) might be trying to help the Obama administration cover up the Benghazi scandal.

 

West is a signer of the letter from a coalition of conservative and military leaders, along with three family members of the victims in the Benghazi terrorist attack, that demanded Boehner create a select committee to investigate the Benghazi terrorist attack. Boehner has been blocking the House Resolution from Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) that would create such a committee, even though H. Res. 36 has 178 cosponsors in addition to Wolf.

 

“There is widespread support for a select committee to get to the bottom of disturbing questions surrounding the attack, as H. Res. 36 has 178 cosponsors,” West said in an email to Breitbart News. “Yet Speaker of the House John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor refuse to bring it to the House floor for a vote. You have to wonder, is there something they know that they prefer not come to light?”

 

The letter delivered to Boehner on Monday similarly questioned whether Boehner is helping President Barack Obama’s administration cover up the Benghazi scandal. Specifically, because Boehner is a member of the “Super 8”—congressional leaders who are briefed on national security matters—the coalition wondered if he knew something that a full investigation into Benghazi would reveal.

 

“Some analysts believe your inaction and passivity towards getting to the truth concerning Benghazi is because you were briefed on the intelligence and special operations activities in Libya as a member of the ‘Super 8,’” the group wrote. “You may possess ‘guilty knowledge.’ We recall how then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi developed a form of ‘amnesia’ concerning a documented briefing she received on so-called ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ – later termed ‘torture’ for political purposes.”

**************************

Editor: As I was preparing to post this I came upon another Breitbart article on Boehner’s minions pertaining to a Benghazigate investigation. Boehner insinuates he still desires to investigate Benghazi. Now that sounds fishy to me because if Boehner is serious I have to ask, “What is the hold-up?”

GOP LEADERSHIP: BENGHAZI VICTIMS’ FAMILIES ‘ABSURD AND INACCURATE’ IN SELECT COMMITTEE DEMAND

An anonymous aide for House GOP leadership told the Washington Examiner Monday it believes three family members of the victims of the Benghazi terrorist attack and other conservative movement and military community leaders are being untruthful in their demand for a select committee investigation into Benghazi.

 

The unidentified aide would work for either Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, or Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, per the Examiner’s identification.

 

Pat Smith, the mother of murdered Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith, and Charles Woods, the father of murdered security officer Tyrone Woods, along with Smith’s uncle Michael Ingmire, joined scores of conservative movement leaders in demanding Boehner install a select committee.

 

A bill that would do so is sitting in the House with 179 cosponsors including lead sponsor Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA), more than a substantial majority of the House GOP conference. Boehner, Cantor, and McCarthy will not schedule a vote on the matter, despite overwhelming support from the conservative movement, victims’ families, the American people, and the GOP conference.

 

Instead, an anonymous House GOP leadership aide responded to Monday’s letter, which was exclusively reported by Breitbart News, to the Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard by accusing the coalition writing the letter of making false statements in the letter regarding the GOP leadership’s incapacity to lead an investigation into Benghazi.

 

“These complaints are absurd and factually inaccurate,” the anonymous GOP leadership aide said. “The committees’ efforts are coordinated by a full-time leadership staffer, administration witnesses have testified publicly and privately, and the committees have both professional investigators and subpoena authority.”

 

Boehner aide Michael Steel added that Boehner wants to still investigate Benghazi. “House Republicans are committed to finding the truth about what happened in Benghazi and why the White House failed to level with the American people,” Steel told Bedard.

 

Steel has not responded to a series of questions on the matter from Breitbart News, including details on the lone staffer he says House GOP leadership has working to coordinate the investigation among the various committees.
