LEVIN: Boehner's retaliation against conservatives means open warfare, time to take him down (ADDENDUM)

Progressives within both political parties want a government of discretion, not one of law. And wouldn't you know that we'd end up with the worst combination: imperialism from the Left, impotence and enabling on the Right. Levin appropriately paves the way to solve one of these problems in regards to the latter quislings (this could also be applied to the former, but good luck on that lost cause of a caucus)...
TRS: Mark Levin responded to the strong-arming by Jason Chaffetz last night in enforcing the will of the Republican establishment by laying out a plan to take down Boehner from the speakership.
Breitbart: It’s time for conservatives to take out House Speaker and all of his comrades in primaries, nationally syndicated radio host, New York Times bestselling author, and conservative movement thought leader Mark Levin argues in an exclusive comment to Breitbart News.

Levin’s comments come after Boehner’s retaliation against conservatives hit a new low this weekend, with a report from Politico about how House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) — playing along with Boehner’s scheme to attack Republicans for voting their conscience—removed Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) as the chairman of a subcommittee on his full committee. Levin even compared Boehner to 20th century Communist Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin and how he cleansed his government of all dissent.

“Speaker Boehner’s and Congressman Chaffetz’s removal of Meadows is the latest in a series of ideologically-driven attacks on conservatives. Boehner seems to think he’s Stalin cleaning out all opposition in the Kremlin,” Levin said. “No Republican Speaker in recent times has behaved with less integrity in his wielding of power.”

Levin said that Boehner, House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) — and more — each need to be removed by Republicans across the country in primaries in 2016. He says this is because the leadership has failed to learn the proper lessons from the astronomical defeat of now former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in 2014 in a primary against now Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA), the first time in U.S. history a sitting House Majority Leader was defeated in a primary. The position of majority leader was created in the late 1800s, so that means this never happened for more than a century—and Levin is calling out GOP leadership for failing to learn from the unprecedented event.

“Obviously, the lessons of Eric Cantor’s humiliating loss have not resonated with Boehner, McCarthy, and Scalise,” Levin said. “The only solution is for Conservatives to husband their resources and target these three in the coming Republican primaries. Conservatives need to find serious candidates and raise funds nationwide to defeat them. Let them fight for their political careers as our response to their disgusting and pathetic behavior.”
Instead of using their power against Obama, the party seems to have taken aim at conservatives in a bid to coalesce and re-enforce its own embedding into the body politic like a fat blood-sucking tick. Is that what we voted them in for?
To Conservatives in these political districts of Ohio, California and Louisiana: It is time to take a stand and mount an all-out political assault against these bought-and-paid-for establishment hacks! They do not represent your interest, only their own; therefore, they must be retired and replaced. Only you, the voter of these states, have that power.

To Conservatives across the country: This will require strong challengers, which will in turn require all of our support.
"Conservatives across the country need to raise significant resources to target and defeat Boehner, McCarthy, and Scalise in upcoming primaries or they'll continue their war on conservatives in pursuit of bigger government."

ADDENDUM: While Boehner gloats over the removal of NC Rep. Mark Meadows and purging other conservatives for daring to vote their conscience (and principle), conservatives appear to be mounting a counterattack...
Newsweek: Conservative lawmakers serving as subcommittee chairmen are finding themselves on the receiving end of retribution from House leadership for defying party leaders.

Last week, 34 Republicans broke from their party in voting against a routine procedural rule that would have advanced Trade Promotion Authority. Since then, GOP leadership has come down hard on those members, removing some from the leadership team and threatening others with losing subcommittee chairmanships.

This show of force from leadership has angered conservative lawmakers and members of the House Freedom Caucus, who are speaking out against the “culture of punishment and fear” that’s emerged during John Boehner’s tenure as speaker.
Glad they're speaking out, but it's time for action. This Speaker needs to be removed!
