Palin speaks out against Boehner

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/12/04/Palin-GOP...

Don't wait for 2014 though, punish Boehner and the RINO's now.

If 17+ rebels withdrew from the GOP whip, Boehner would no longer command a majority in the House.

Are there the numbers?

Boehner would have to come wooing fiscal conservatives, not kicking them off committees.

(I am no fan of Palin but allies are needed when the devil drives.)

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

Just Called Amash's Grand Rapids Office

The staffer said that assignments are not yet official. The congressman has no comment at this point.

When I asked if we should get our panties in a bunch he said. "Not Yet". I'm sure the speaker has heard already that were locked and loaded and ready for a fight.

If the speaker wants a fight we know how to give him one.

Fiscal conservative groups rebel against Boehner

Several prominent conservative organizations lashed out against a pair of decisions by Speaker John Boehner’s leadership team as House Republicans saw their tightly held grip on the right loosen a bit on Monday.
Heritage Action, long a thorn in the side of the House Republican leadership, told its members in an email that Boehner was asking his “members to go back on their promise not to raise taxes on the American people” by putting $800 billion in new revenue into the mix of the negotiations to avert the fiscal cliff.

And Club for Growth, a longtime small-government group, said Reps. David Schweikert (R-Ariz.), Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) and Justin Amash (R-Mich.) were “free of the last remnants of establishment leverage against them” after they were booted from their committees by the House Republican Steering Committee for crossing leadership too often.
Club for Growth is promising the most potent political weapon — cash — to support the trio.

Use it to spread discord & division where ever you can in theGOP

Get the neocons and RINO's to attack each other and hopefully destroy each other.

Ron Paul 2016

People are still

listening to Levin???
Like he would know a fiscal conservative? He smeared and insulted the one fiscal conservative that ran in the last pres. election. What the hell does HE care?
More drama and distraction. There will be no reform from within, no harnessing evil for "Good".
The state is evil to their core.

Levin, like Hannity, Beck, Savage

manufacture their commentary / opinions based on whatever sells at the time. Seems the only truth is Amash getting he boot.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

Time for there to be a revolt

Time for there to be a revolt in the House and to vote Ron Paul as the next speaker.

The new coalition is coming together

Talk radio conservatives, Ron Paul Constitutionalists, and grass roots small town conservatives. Levin and Limbaugh are starting to get it, and they probably also know that Rand Paul is a guy they can support. This is the winning coalition that kiss the Establishment goodbye and can stand up to the Marxists. It started to come together in Tampa and it is continuing now as they realize they have nowhere else to go but Paul.

"New Coalition"

You think Rush is changing his spots? Please. He's part of the MSM propaganda arm. They cozy up to us but will co-opt the message later on. Their version of "auditing the Fed" will leave people with the same false sense of security that having the SEC regulate the financial industry or FDIC insurance does.

I'm on a Palin forum

saying the same thing about Ron Paul supporters, that a coalition of the anti-establishment groups needs to come together to kick out the establishment. Palin was just on Fox preaching to end the Fed and the printing of money.

Here is a snip from their thread talking about it

Roll Call later added that Walter Jones of North Carolina had also been removed from that committee. Additionally, Reps. Justin Amash of Michigan and Tim Huelkamp of Kansas were removed from the House Budget Committee, which Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin is currently chair and will continue to chair in the next Congress.

A press release issued by Huelskamp’s spokeswoman Karen Steward says that the freshman Rep. “was given limited explanation for his removal but clearly his consistent, principled, and conservative votes have riled the GOP Establishment.”

This good, there is an internal war. Mark levin went off on Boehner, Cantor and the other idiot, I think mcCarthy. He was naming some of these solid Conservatives that knocked off committees, and said Boehner has got to go.

Yep Boehnhead has got to go. I think we need to get Republican call lists in his district and start calling his constituents and yelp at them for voting for him, and to run someone against him in the primary.

Who Did Palin Endorse?

Newt.

These people are all phonies. Don't buy it.

I like Palin. She is hot.

But color me skeptical. She is cool with us but the republican establishment also includes the radio establishment. They like Rand not because he is more "marketable", it is because he is corruptable.

The last flailings

of a party doomed to repeat the destiny of the Whigs.

Maybe I'm out of the loop here,

but isn't this the same Mark Levin who viciously attacked Ron Paul nonstop? And now he's upset about Boehner's treatment of Amash, a man who agrees with 99.9% of what Ron Paul says, and votes accordingly?

How can he simultaneously hate RP and think Amash is "excellent"?

I think he sees the tide changing

True but he has been a Rand Paul

supporter from day 1, and nearly everyday has mentioned Rand Paul as one, if not the best leader the GOP has.

Levin is an Israel supporter, he disagreed on everything Ron Paul said on foreign policy based on that, of course Rand Paul does not have the same policy as his dad on that one.

Because he

is a Hack, that's how! That is how they work! For the next 3 years you will hear from Levin's mouth heaping praises for constitutionally minded people then when election time approaches and one runs for office his true self comes out until the election is over and then its suck ass time again to keep the idiots that listen to him tuned in.
The guy is a complete phony....He bashed RP and his supporters until he was blue in the face ( those RP people yada yada yada)then right after the election he was actually on the air praising us for keeping Romney out. How people fall for this clown is mind boggling to me as is everything else that's going on right now. Reading all the bad news today really makes a guy feel hopeless ...this SUCKS !

He is a hack.

Its a pattern as Conservative Warrior has mentioned. We are alway subjected to this. You need to stop falling for it everytime. Come primary time the knives will be out attacking us and our candidate and the media ignoring and silencing us.

They are already doing it. You don't hear "Rand Paul" as a potential republican candidate. Only "Chris Cristy, Jindal, Bush, and Rubio". STOP FALLING FOR IT.

If you don't want to keep this thread up,

there's another with the same info you can bump that doesn't mention Levin.

I agree - people posting stuff here on the DP about Levin need to get a clue.

ummm I have a clue

but you can't have a party of one and total purity, it does not work. If Levin is going to push Amash and Rand Paul, people should know about it.

You want these people to help, you want to build coalitions, otherwise you have the food stamp peddler as President and his food stampers voting for him.

So sick of the puritans and looking for Mr. Goodbar mentality. It freakin doesn't work if you want to win.

I'm not a purist dude.

It's just a pattern. We have fallen for it once before.

You are correct

that a party of one and total purity will not work but what you fail to realize is Levin will support Rand right up until the next election approaches then he will turn his coat and throw his support to somebody like Rubio or the Bushleaguer . Same goes for Flush. All they could talk about after the election was RINO Marco Rubio. Rubio this, Rubio that. Ive listened to these hacks long enough to know how they work and they will fail you every time....Never put your trust in them to do the right thing or you will be very disappointed...

It does make sense, Henry

It does make sense, Henry :

Levin has always known he can only but remain in Ron Paul's shade. "Politically", so to speak. You know ... Ron Paul (among so VERY few others) actually HAS something to say and stand for.

Hence the other hint :

the noun starts with "J-" and ends with "-LOUSY".

(To defend Amash is easier and harmless, on the other hand, I suppose.)

Boehner doesn't have very good short term memory.

He needs to ask Mittens how well things will turn out for you when you try to marginalize the Liberty element.

Or maybe none of this matters if he actually agrees with everything the opposition does anyway?
