John Boehner, Mob Boss?

Posted in Politics3 years ago • Written by Defender Of LibertyNo Comments


     Congressman John Boehner was elected to a third term as the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, but Republican members did not provide him with a landslide victory. In fact, twenty-five (25) Republicans did not vote for Boehner. The following is a list Republicans who voted against Boehner:

  1. Rep. Justin Amash, Michigan
  2. Rep. Rod Blum, Iowa
  3. Rep. Dave Brat, Virginia
  4. Rep. Jim Bridenstine, Oklahoma
  5. Rep. Curt Clawson, Florida
  6. Rep. Scott DesJarlais, Tennessee
  7. Rep. Jeff Duncan, South Carolina
  8. Rep. Scott Garrett, New Jersey
  9. Rep. Chris Gibson, New York
  10. Rep. Louie Gohmert, Texas
  11. Rep. Paul Gosar, Arizona
  12. Rep. Tim Huelskamp, Kansas
  13. Rep. Walter Jones, North Carolina
  14. Rep. Steve King, Iowa
  15. Rep. Thomas Massie, Kentucky
  16. Rep. Mark Meadows, North Carolina
  17. Rep. Rich Nugent, Florida
  18. Rep. Gary Palmer, Alabama
  19. Rep. Bill Posey, Florida
  20. Rep. Scott Rigell, Virginia
  21. Rep. Marlin Stutzman, Indiana
  22. Rep. Randy Weber, Texas
  23. Rep. Daniel Webster, Florida
  24. Rep. Ted Yoho, Florida
  25. Rep. Brian Babin, Texas

These are the members who will face the wrath of Boehner and his made-men for going against the family. That’s right, the family. 

     The day after the vote, Boehner referred to the vote in the House as a “situation” that will require a “family conversation.” In Boehner’s words:

We had a situation yesterday where we had to constitute the Rules Committee but because of some of the activities on the floor, two of our members weren’t put back on the committee immediately. I have not had a chance to talk to them, I have not had a chance to talk to our members. But this morning I told the members the same thing I’m saying here. We’re going to have a family conversation, which we had this morning about bringing our team together. And I expect those conversations over the next couple of days will continue and we’ll come to a decision about how we’re going to move forward.

Boehner is referring to the Rules Committee because two dissidents, Rich Nugent and Daniel Webster, have already been punished for their act of defiance. A few hours after the vote ended, Boehner removed Nugent and Webster from their seats on the Rules Committee. Webster’s defiance is more appalling and embarrassing to Boehner because he dared to run against Boehner for Speaker, so I assume he will be sent to lawmaker Siberia. 
     Boehner did not hide the fact that he had punished Nugent and Webster because he is the boss and he wants everybody to know that if you go against him, you will suffer the same fate. He also didn’t rule out the punishment of other dissidents. When asked whether he would be taking more action against the dissidents, he stated: “We’re going to continue to have a family conversation, and when we have something to report, you’ll be the first one to know.” It appears as if Boehner is going to have a conversation with his Capos to determine whether anybody else needs to get whacked. 

     The message is clear from Boehner that you go against the Republican establishment you will be punished. It is apparent that members of the Republican Party must jettison their principles, constituents, and country because the most important thing is your political affiliation. I salute the members who voted against Boehner. I am reluctant to call them courageous because it shouldn’t take courage to cast any vote in Congress, but evidently it does take some courage to vote against Boehner and the Republican establishment when you know you are probably going to get whacked.
