Meadows makes move to unseat Boehner IMMEDIATELY (UPDATE)

We have a few real patriots in Congress, like Mark Meadows, who called in to discuss his motion to strip John Boehner of his speakership. We need more men and women willing to fight and put their career on the line to do what is right and challenge the weak GOP leadership. Boehner and Mitch McConnell have been doing Obama’s dirty work for too long. They don’t represent us; they represent lobbyists and corporatists. ~ ML, 7/28/15
This was all initiated yesterday, and we, CONSERVATIVES, must put pressure on our congressmembers to support the ousting of this would-be king of the House!
"You have to keep charging the Hill!"


WND: It’s the first time in 105 years in the House of Representatives: A Republican congressman filed a motion Tuesday to remove House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, from his position.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., filed a “motion to vacate the chair” Tuesday evening, saying Boehner “has endeavored to consolidate power and centralize decision-making, bypassing the majority of the 435 Members of Congress and the people they represent.”

Meadows’ proposal has been referred to a committee filled with leadership loyalists, making it unlikely to survive, Fox News reported.

The congressman’s motion accuses Boehner of weakening the power of Congress, “thereby making Congress subservient to the Executive and Judicial branches, diminishing the voice of the American People.”

It also charges that Boehner has used his leadership position in the House to “punish Members who vote according to their conscience instead of the will of the Speaker.”

In June, GOP leaders fired Meadows from his subcommittee chairmanship, but outcry from conservatives caused them to restore it.

Fox News noted that the resolution could place Democrats in a difficult situation. Should they vote to keep Boehner even after they’ve clashed with him so many times? Or should they side with conservatives and help throw him out?

“Much like the Declaration of Independence, he’s laid a case against the crown,” talk-show host Mark Levin said on his show Tuesday evening. “He’s showing the institutional corruption of John Boehner.”

He continued, “John Boehner is Nancy Pelosi’s favorite Republican in the House of Representatives. So, while the Democrats should vote to remove John Boehner, many will vote to keep him because they like what he’s doing. They like what he’s doing to advance Obama’s agenda. We have a very brave member of Congress, Meadows, who has said enough is enough. I would encourage you to call your members of the House of Representatives and tell them to support Mark Meadows.”

Levin urged listeners to “overwhelm their phone lines,” “overwhelm their emails.”
As NC Congressman Walter Jones, who's supporting Meadow's effort, said, "No one should be intimidated for voting your conscience. If you are here to vote for the will of the Speaker and not the will of the people, you don’t need to be here." EXACTLY!
