GOP District To Congressman: Oppose 'Treasonous' Boehner's Speaker Re-election


Virginia's 6th District Republican Committee has taken issue with House Speaker John Boehner in an open letter sent to U.S. Representative Bob Goodlatte and the leadership of the House of Representatives in which they refer to Boehner's actions as "treasonous to our interests and our security."

The letter, sent back on November 10, criticizes Boehner for “his unwillingness to lead the effort to de-fund Obama’s healthcare,” and “his capitulation on the issue of amnesty and his agreement to raise taxes,” calling those stances “nothing short of treasonous to our interests and our security.”

While the letter didn't get attention nationally, it definitely reflects many people's sentiments as the calls have come from all over to fire John Boehner from the position of Speaker of the House in the new Congress.

"The framers of the Constitution of the United States wisely instituted the division of powers, not merely to enable specialization of the respective commissions, but primarily to limit the powers of each community," the district wrote. "Under the influence of both Christian thought and the abysmal historical precedents of foreign nations, they recognized the tendency even of the best of men to secure to themselves unlimited and unjust authority, and to employ it for the purpose of enslaving the masses. The authors judiciously embraced their moral obligation by including this mechanism (division of powers) for the simple frustration of such tyrannical efforts."

The letter continued, "The imposition of Obamacare against the wishes of the people is an unequivocal expression of the anticipated tyrannical powers. Yet even though every member of the House of Representatives is aware of his ability to thwart this measure, no such effort of protection is forthcoming. Apparently few enough care more about the people they purport to represent than about their own political aspirations."

"Speaker Boehner has called for “Repeal and Replace,” all the while he has been fully cognizant of the fact that the Senate and the President would not concur with him," the letter reads. "Such disingenuous acts are intended to defraud the people while leading them to believe he is fighting for their cause. His unwillingness to lead the effort to de-fund Obama’s healthcare, a truly feasible mechanism for restraining this tyranny, is a conscious dereliction of duty. His recent commitment to active pursuit of its funding, coupled with his capitulation on the issue of amnesty and his agreement to raise taxes are acts that are nothing short of treasonous to our interests and our security."

The letter concludes, "Therefore, we are writing to notify you of our unwillingness to accept such representation; to demand that you oppose the selection of Mr. Boehner as speaker for the next session; that you only select a representative who is willing to engage fully in battle
against Obamacare and the many other imprudent and unconstitutional efforts of the Obama administration, and that our future support for you is contingent upon your efforts to lead the fight to deny President Obama every unconstitutional measure, and that this must be done without excuse."

Breitbart.com reports,

The district committee also unanimously passed and sent a similar letter to Boehner himself on the same day.

It’s unclear whether Goodlatte will support Boehner during his January 3 bid for re-election as Speaker of the House, or if Goodlatte will follow the demand of the local GOP. A spokeswoman for the congressman didn’t respond to a request for comment from Breitbart News.

Boehner recently named Goodlatte the next chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. Goodlatte and Boehner had already received their Nov. 10 letters when Goodlatte received the chairman position, but the job doesn’t appear to have been a special treatment or buyoff from the Speaker. Goodlatte was next in line for the job.

"We're concerned about standing up for conservative principles, including fiscal issues," 6th District GOP Committee Chairman Wendell Walker said. "We understand President Obama has no fiscal discipline, especially when it comes to the debt."

Bath County Republican Committee Chairman Dan Moxley, whose name was listed on the 6th District Republican Committee news release, said "There's a great divide in the Republican Party between what we refer to as the establishment people and the true conservatives."

It appears that John Boehner's days are numbered as Speaker of the House and for good reason.

    you people HAVE NO UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT BOENER FACES IN A RACE WE DID NOT WIN. IT IS SO MUCH EASIER TO CRITICIZE AND CRUCIFY PEOPLE WHEN YOU ARE NOT THE ONE DEALT THE BAD HAND-HE IS NOT GOING AGAINST US-HE IS TRYING TO DO THE BEST HE CAN WITH THE CARDS HE HAS BEEN DEALT IT IS NO WONDER WE LOST-WE HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO LOYALTY

    • Susan Daniels

      This sounds like something written by John Boehner.

    • oldaddytx

      Jake if you call compromising with the devil just dealing with the cards dealt then it is obvious you are willing to compromise the conservative principles of America. That makes you as bad as Boehner.

  • biloak71

    To all: Merry Christmas, and Healthy New Year. Especially with the menacing O'care law staring us in the face. Re: Boehner; it's my understanding that the next in line for the post is Rep Paul Ryan. Sounds good, but does he have what it takes to help retain House majority? It's all we have left. Soot the SCOTUS will be O's also. America's in a tough spot, right now. If we lose in '14, then the mooring lines are cut and we drift away...

    • kysteelgirl

      If we make it to 2014!

  • Walt

    Boehner has developed a treasonous attitude and is worthy of our attention only in so far as voting him out of office. We do not need elected representatives who will not listen to the will of the people. VOTE HIM OUT!

  • Fed Up

    You appear to be full of ______. How about going after some treasonous Democrats? It appears a large swath of representatives in DC have voted for unconstitutional bills such as the Obamacare. They swore to uphold the constitution. Therefore, logically, they have committed treason. Not true? It seems, sir, that you are hypocritical. Why not paint the whole cloth of blind procedure-following, unthinking bureaucrats for what they are? They are, it seems, crooks, criminals, liars or worse. Good luck with your reforms. Speak the TRUTH and try to inform the ignorant Nazis that obey orders and refuse personal responsibility.

  • har82

    Excellent letter . Now let's see if it gets anywhere lol.

    He ( b o n e r ) does most definitely ,,, need to be replaced with a real conservative .. And -Not left with a - house puppet - who works for the democraps .... He worries more about his tan ,,, than he does his - constituents - ,, quite obviously ....

  • Patriot

    Obama and Boehner are co-conspirators of our destruction. I won't give another dime to the Republican Party or any group that supports it as long as Boehner is the speaker and our gov't continues to vote or impose laws that we do not want and that go against the Constitution. Obama mandates and Boehner sucks up.

    • har82

      I stopped donating squat to the GOP when they ran up - mccain - for the office. O also quite calling myself a - republican - as well.

      It was quite obvious at that time that the GOP no longer represented my interests ,, or any - conservatives - interests as well.

      All parties change with time ,,, but most do not openly join ,, the enemy lol.
      The - republican party - ,,, has become infested with democraps ( rino's ) and needs a - serious - house - cleaning - . And it wouldn't - hurt - ,,, if the ones that were left grew a - backbone - as well.

    • oldaddytx

      Wrong attitude. Give to truly conservative organizations that fight for what we believe such as the Heritage Foundation.

    • kysteelgirl

      Or give to numbersusa dot com to help defeat obama's amnesty

  • T-Texas

    The very first time Boehner caved into the Democrats and didn't need to I thought mistake and he is a Rino.Time for him to go and to Sam Donalson the Tea is not gone or defeated as you suggest.We will be here for a long time to come.

    • 44rd11

      Boehner is NOT a RINO - he is the epitome of a elitist establishment liberal Republican. A "R I N O" is a Republican in name only - that is any Conservative, Tea Party person, or a Libertarian that is still clinging with a false hope to the Republican Party to get something done. And as long as the likes of John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, or Karl Rove are the top dog elitists - you are going to lose, lose, lose.

  • greyhound44

    Eliminate this RINO FOOL!

  • Greg137

    Boehner is a RINO... We need somebody who doesn't cry like a four year-old, for house Speaker! Maybe If Boehner want a jpob as a "Speaker" he would get a job with the Dark Brotherhood(yes, in the elder scrolls video game series)... That would mean that if they get tired of his crying they could shenk him with a blade of woe... Hmm that would make for some ineresting and FUNNIER youtube parodies! (ballin, ballin, jarl is ballin, tree dog awoo!)

    • har82

      It is , but the - elite - still ignore it lol. At this point it seems that - both parties - want the same thing . POWER ,,, AND CONTROL ..... And to h e l l ,,,, with the little people.

  • rickinmo

    Conservatives just love to throw around words like treasonous, socialist, and tyranny among others. Sounds pretty scary but, has nothing to do with reality. If a few conservatives actually took the time to understand the meaning of these words and replaced them with words that actually reflect reality then, started to think for themselves rather than believe what they're told, politics wouldn't seem so stupid.

    • har82

      Well - rick mo - ,, those words , like all words have meaning .. Seems you commies have forgotten all that lol.
      If it - walks - like a duck ,, - quacks - like a duck ,, and has feathers ,, like a duck ,, then surely ,, it must ,,, be a duck lol.
      But I will say , most politicians do look more ,, and smell ,, more like - PIGS - lol.

  • Harold

    He sure betrayed the American people when he refused to lead a defunding of Obamination care. Is his real 'Joseph Goebbels'? The propaganda minister of 1930's Germany, who has been resurrected?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=516859771 John Sweet

    Stop all the petty bickering the real enemy is still sitting there laughing his ass off at our in fighting. The focus should be only on the Treasonous actions of the man sitting as president, and his followers are enabling his actions.
    Go after them first and foremost then come back and get Boehner out but keep an eye on hhe true target the salvation of the republic from Obama's destructive ways.

    • opey

      well said. my friend!!!

    • har82

      Well John,, it's kind of hard to - go after them - , when - them , they ,, have infested our party . ----- Now isn't it :) .
      No war was - ever - won when - both - sides stood for the same thing lol.

    • 44rd11

      Obama is less the enemy than Congress - but you people have GRANTED Obama ALL the power he needs. The executive branch is only one third of the government - Congress is there to make laws in accordance with the Constitution - The President is supposed to govern, not rule, in accordance with the Constitution and the laws passed by Congress. We have a stymied, stalemated, Congress that cannot do anything because they are controlled by the Party elite - rather than by the people who elected them to represent them and their state. Obama can do NOTHING - unless Congress is complicit or complacent in his actions.

  • Don

    John Boehner represents the 8th district here in Ohio where we live. We have always had confidence in Congressman Boehner, up until he is willing to go against the American peoples wishes by caving to Mr. Obamas socialistic agenda. Folks we need to take our America back, and we need people of principle working on our behalf. I truly thought John Boehner was that man. He's not. Represenative Michelle Bachman of Wisconsin is my pick to replace Boehner.

    • tom

      actually Michelle is from Minnesota, and I am glad that she is.

    • Patriot

      Michelle would be a good choice. I can think of 3 or 4 who would do a good job.

      Let's hope our House Of Representatives does the right thing this time.

    • Don

      you are so right. Sorry.

    • http://twitter.com/AlRoberts3 Al Roberts

      Do SOMETHING. Start a petition to recall Boehner. If he sees his position is threatened because of his refusal to act like a man, maybe he will WAKE UP.
      Otherwise, call Sarah Palin and replace him with her. She has a back bone and brains.

    • 44rd11

      Take your petition and shove it where the sun doesn't shine - Petitions to any part of this government we have are useless - whether on paper on electronic - or haven't you figured that out yet?

    • MK McMillion

      Petitions are useful if submitted with a very large number of signatures. Otherwise don't bother submitting them. Said petitions convey the sentiments of the targeted parties constituents.They are always worried about reelection.

    • The Big Easy

      I kind of like the old 'TAR AND FEATHERS' idea better.---------It has a nice ring to it.

    • Patriot

      I was hoping the citizens of Ohio would vote the moron Boehner out last election.

      Was very unhappy that they did not. Perhaps their voting machines were not only rigged for the imposter..........but for Boehner too. Perhaps that was the bargain with the devil that Boehner made.

    • Susan Daniels

      Good observation. They had the vote rigged for Sherrod Brown. Why not for Boehner.

    • Susan Daniels

      Just about anyone would be better than Boehner but I especially like Ryan.

    Artificial Intelligence

    A lady bought a new Lexus & it cost a bundle. Two days later, she brought it back, complaining that the radio was not working.

    "Madam," said the sales manager, "the audio system in this car is completely automatic. All you need to do is tell it what you want to listen to, and you will hear exactly that!"

    She drove out, somewhat amazed and a little confused. She looked at the radio and said, "Nelson." The radio responded, "Ricky or Willie?" She was astounded. If she wanted Beethoven, that's what she got. If she wanted Nat King Cole, she got it.

    She was stopped at a traffic light enjoying "On The Road Again" when the light turned green and she pulled out. Suddenly an enormous sports utility vehicle coming from the street she was crossing sped toward her, obviously not paying attention to the light. She swerved and narrowly missed a collision.

    "Idiot!" she yelled and, from the radio, "Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States."

    • rickinmo

      This joke is obviously 4 to 12 years old.

    • tom

      but still good, and it is onlyas old as oblowho has been the usurper in chief

    • Randy131

      The joke is more relevent today than it ever was, and only because Obama is the biggest idiot that has ever held the Presidency, or the smartest 'Manchurian Candidate' that has ever fooled the American people.

    • Raymond

      Like wine it gets better with age.

    • barefootmtgirl

      Hi Raymond, I do so enjoy your comments..tks...

    • Raymond

      :-)

    • Eagle

      If you would do the research, it was relevent a hundred years ago, but not created then due to the lack of the technology.

    New Element

    The densest element yet known to science has been discovered. The new element has been named "Obamacronium."

    Obamacronium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 911.

    These particles are held together by dark forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

    The symbol for Obamacronium is "O."

    Obamacronium's mass actually increases over time, as these morons randomly interact with various elements in the atmosphere and become assistant deputy neutrons in a Obamacronium molecule, forming a large cluster of idiotopes.

    This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientists to believe that Obamacronium is formed whenever morons reach a critical mass also known as "Critical Morass."

    When catalyzed with money, Obamacronium activates CNNnewsium, an element radiating several orders of magnitude more energy, mostly as incoherent noise, since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.

    if this is treason then what in the hell do you call what obumba is doing to the country...

    • GENE

      The imposter should be in prison and should have been put there over four years ago. But the judges are paid off and they enjoy the power and pay check too much. Just have a clean sweep in the White HOuse, Congress and definitely the Senator.

    • davienne

      payed off or threatened... im betting on threatened... judging by obos long list of bodies in the wake of this corrupt administration... he makes the clintons body count pale in comparison

  • http://www.3rdWAVElandsProperties.net/ Joe Winpisinger

    This is bizarre. I am not fan of Boehner but this is not treason. Hyperbole just make us look like a bunch of zealots. True Conservatism does not trust the "will of the people" blindly either. The founders were very skeptic of democracy and this was the reason for the separation of powers. "The People" can be just as tyrannical as a king or rouge Senate. People need to read Cicero who was widely praised by our Founders.

    • jdangiel

      Cicero may have influenced the founders, but he didn't write the constitution. Nor was he the principal or only influence on them. There was also, Locke, Aristotle and others. And they trusted the people enough to give them unlimited powers compared to the federal government whose powers are limited and enumerated. Treasonous is certainly not the right word, but sell-out and betrayal work well. Keep reading.

      Does not say treasonous to the consitution but rather treasonous to 'our' cause, a huge difference.

    • http://www.3rdWAVElandsProperties.net/ Joe Winpisinger

      Fair enough... still hyperbole though

    • don

      if the people are tyrannical the leader is to. an that bring us to where we are now.most people want what this tyrannicall leader wants that got him relected. will good win over bad? shows no sign of that at the momet. good has to be very good. no one fills those shoes
