Night of the Long Knives: Fake Conservative John Boehner Purges the GOP

I have written about the two-party political sham for many years now.  At its root, the issue is that both the Democratic Party and the Republican Party are at their core the same on the big issues most affect these United States at this time.  These issues are:

1) The Federal Reserve scam and Wall Street theft.
2) Civil liberties and the destruction of the Constitution.
3) Our aggressive foreign policy and imperial wars abroad that help only the oligarchs and impoverish the masses.

Then they divide and conquer the masses using relatively irrelevant social issues like gay marriage, which are highly charged emotionally but will not affect your ability to put food on the table.

This past election should have been a wakeup call to the Republican establishment, but based on John Boehner’s recent actions, they have learned absolutely nothing.  The Republican Party is imploding from within since its leaders don’t actually stand for anything.  Here is how Mr. Boehner treats those within his party that do stand for something.

From the Huffington Post:
On Monday, the Republican Steering Committee, which is chaired by House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), voted to remove Reps. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) and Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas) from the House Budget Commtitee. Reps. David Schweikert (R-Ariz.) and Walter Jones (R-N.C.) lost their positions on the Financial Services Committee.

The four members are known for occasionally bucking leadership and voting against Boehner’s wishes. Amash, Huelskamp and Schweikert are popular with the conservative movement, while Jones has made a name for himself by speaking out against U.S. involvement in Afghanistan.

Reuters notes that removing Amash and Huelskamp from the Budget Committee “could make it easier for the panel to advance a deal with Democrats to cut fiscal deficits” — which is exactly what many conservative groups are afraid of.

Huelskamp unloaded on GOP leadership Tuesday at a Heritage Foundation event in Washington, saying, “We were not notified about what might occur but it confirms in my mind the deepest suspicions that most Americans have about Washington D.C: it’s petty, it’s vindictive, and if you have conservative principles you will be punished.”

“It’s a slap in the face to all young people who are thinking about being Republicans, want to be a part of this party, and are being told, ‘Well, if you disagree with leadership just a couple times we’re going to send you home … you don’t get to participate,’” he said.

Jones said he hasn’t yet spoken to Boehner. In fact, he only found out he lost his spot on the committee when his staff read about it on the Internet.

Talk about classless.  These guys apparently weren’t even notified of their demotions ahead of time and had to read about it in the press.  The message to the citizenry is clear.  We must move away from the two-party system and fast.  That way we can elect candidates that actually vote the will of the people that elected them, rather than pander to some slimy political godfather in Washington.

  1. I think this is great news. If either party implodes, the interests that control them, the ones identified by your itemized list, have to start from scratch. That party leaderships are so dim they over-control their membership to the point of (it is to be hoped) collapsing their base back home, is really sort of the script for the demise of those parties, isn’t it? I don’t want a revitalized GOP; I don’t want a re-energized Democratic Party. I want both whorehouses razed and their members who cannot stand scrutiny to be run out of town on a rail. I want the TPTB to really wonder who’s coming to Washington each election, and to have to work really hard at suborning each new face individually, risking exposure.

  2. Sooner or later, conservatives shall realize that they must bolt from the GOP and form their own party. Sooner or later, the RINO’s shall push conservatives too far — the RINO’s shall effectively push conservatives out of the GOP. Indeed, that is what is happening right now.

  3. I believe we need a third party. You can’t watch what is happening with conservatives, while the administration is handing out tons of money to the people who feel deprived. Two-against-one is effective in a slug-fest.
    Obama has said many times,”The middle-class will NOT see any increased in taxes.” Already he is talking about doing the opposite.
    Silly fool is not to be trusted on statements or policy. Hitler didn’t either.

    • Hugely ironic and revealing that you choose to mention HItler in the comment section of a blog that uses the term “Blitzkrieg” as part of its URL, or did you somehow not notice that? When the fascist takeover commences, it will come carrying a flag, a bible and a gun. And that will be the end of your precious liberty.

      • Did I not notice that? Come on man. My last name is Krieger, it is a purposeful play on that. Yes of course I am well aware of World War 2 history and I am taking the term and using it in my own positive way. Your first comment was interesting, so thanks for that one.

  4. Exactly why I left the Republican Party and am now a registered Independent with Libertarian leanings along with my basic conservative principles. The two party system as it now exists in America is a closed club. Notice how many obstacles the Repubs and Dems both voted for in order to make it virtually impossible for third parties to gain traction. Just like most financial markets today – rigged.

  5. I have been saying for years that what voters have not yet learned is the simple truth that “no government can give anybody anything they do not first take away from someone else” and understanding that means, partisan rhetoric based on allegiance to either of the main parties is simply of no consequence. Both parties have sold out to crony capitalism that benefits only an elite few, they do not serve the interests of the average working man, their allegiance is simply to POWER and money.

  6. I believe that all the crooked dealings that our government officials have dished out are going to come back and bite them in the *ss. A lot of working folks are tired of the governments ruthless spending of workin folks pay checks and many are looking for ways to cut government spending by working else where or for cash. I have a hard time swallowing that they give $200 dollars for haircuts and $30,000 for hamburgers, and want to pay for it with my hard earned money. I think they all should be thrown out to work like the rest of us(with no tax-payed pensions). What I work for is mine to spend. not them. Tony

  7. the future is in the hands of the independent voter

  8. Check out what is really going to become of the U.S. “After America: Rebuilding” is available on Amazon Kindle. It even has a new Constitution. Pretty neat read.

  9. Personally, I’m getting a big kick out of watching the Republican Party implode. It’s a war between the timeless, eternally patient Status Quo vs. those who once believed the rhetoric of the Reagan propaganda machine, who are now just waking up to the fact that they’ve been duped into voting for a fraudulent party for the past 30 years. Cold water in the face, brings you back to this awful place!
