Mark Levin blasts King Boehner for consolidating his power to squash the conservative voice

Mark Levin spent a few minutes before he left for Thanksgiving to ensure that everyone knew how Boehner has recently been consolidating his power in the House among the leadership and committee chairmanships to squash the conservative voice. This will give him free reign to capitulate to Democrats on a myriad of policy proposals without having to deal with a more principled conservative pushback. Levin commented that Boehner isn’t acting like a Speaker, he’s acting like a King.

    It’s a shame he’s the only one I hear talking about this. Wonder if Rush will take this one on, it’s obvious that Hannity & the crew at Fox isn’t going to touch it

  • Dukehoopsfan

    I borrowed this from an earlier post … “I’m not going to prejudge it, and I’m just saying we should not be taking ironclad positions,” King added. “I have faith that John Boehner can put together a good package.” …

    Sorry but I have to call bullsh!t on the whole thing.

  • Orangeone

    Mark Levin for Speaker of the House. We need to find the legal ways to get Boehner out.

    • sjmom

      Going to have to support whoever challenges him in the primary; hopefully a conservative.

      • Orangeone

        I posted separately praying Allen West would move to OH and run against him!  I think I’ll tweet West too.  My Twitter bro and sis, please tweet as well as post here!

        • sjmom

          Not sure Allen would trade Florida’s weather for Ohio’s. LOL

          There’s someone out there.

          • Orangeone

            Agreed!  I also suggested he move to MN to run against freeky Franken in 2014!  I at least got a Favorite on that tweet 🙂  I hear GA has an open invitation to him and I belive they have a Senate seat in 2014.

            • sjmom

              Isn’t GA where Chambliss is; one of the renegades of the tax pledge? Not sure.

              • Patriot077

                Yup. And his term is up in 2014. What a coinkydink.

              • Orangeone

                Yes ma’am he is a Senator from Georgia!

          • warpmine

            What’s the difference, neither are in Ohio, their in DC swimming in the cesspool with West swimming upstream to Boehner trying to disrupt his progress. Yes are we ready now to accept the 1st Republic is in fact dead and in zombie status. How do you kill a zombie, I forgot……

      • proudhispanicconservative

        Maybe I am not educated enough on how the system works, but wasn’t he already chosen to represent this congress? And If I remember correctly everyone had to fall in line, with him, and nobody challenged him, except for Louie Gohmert who nominated Newt for speaker of the house. This is a question maybe someone more educated in the matter can explain how the system work, please help.

        • sjmom

          If you’re talking about Boehner becoming Speaker you’re right he was chosen by the GOP caucus as Speaker. Guess there are not enough conservatives to make noise. Don’t fully understand how these things work myself.

          This I do know; politics is dirty and deals are made and DC is an incestuous place. IMO this is why we need term limits. There are too many temptations for those there for a long time. Something has to change and its not going to be us. Its time to stand and fight because if we don’t who will?

    • warpmine

      For policy reasons of this site, I cannot clearly state the correct solution but you can take a not so wild guess.

      • Orangeone

        ::):):):):)  I’m a quick study!

  • Orangeone

    My dear Allen West, please move to Ohio and run against John Boehner in 2014!

    • stage9

      I’m not sure he’d win in Ohio. He didn’t win in FL!

      • Orangeone

        Redistricting and voter fraud took care of FL.  If Boehner can win, West can win in OH

  • NJK

    Boehner’s a bully. He’s bullying House members, because he feels small, and is trying to prove he’s someone important. He is in that position, and he obviously has no clue what his job is. They work for their constituents, not him. He obviously has no regard for American citizens, who pay his salary.

    I view Boehner as an insecure, man, who’s not really that intelligent. He was elected to Congress over and over again, when he should be tending bar somewhere. He reached his Peter Principle as a member of Congress. I’ll be glad when he dies, because it seems like he’s the only person they vote for in his district.

    He’s doing damage to the Repulbican Party, because I won’t vote for anyone they present again. I’m done. He seems to think he’s a little dictator.

  • sjmom

    Time for a third party and then let them whine and scream like the little piggy who cried oui, oui, oui all the way home.

    • warpmine

      Make a new Geico commercial

      • sjmom

        Nah, the gecco is cute. Besides, the piggy is a much better description because DC drinks from the trough. Oink!

  • Don

    Too bad that nobody has informed CryBaby Boehner that the RINOs are now the third party. To alienate the conservatives is political suicide for RINOs. I guess it had to happen sometime. Now is as good as waiting for them to find out.

  • denbren52

    I can’t repeat this enough. It’s time for small-government conservatives to band together into an actual political party so that we can nominate candidates for Congress in 2014 and a Presidential candidate in 2016. We will never get anywhere trying to change the GOP from the inside as long as people like Boehner are making the rules. And they are!

    Please don’t call it the Tea Party.

    • Hey denbren52- a bunch of us HAVE banded together! Come check it out, and if you like it, join us! All the info so far is here:

    • ApplePie101

      ^ This, 100%. The Tea Party is and should remain a force of nature.
      We need a constitution-centered party, one with closed primaries. If you aren’t in the party, you don’t get to choose the candidate.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Boehner has been a MAJOR disappointment. We need to replace him with someone that can be effective for the conservative voices in Congress.

  • I am afraid, this has gone on too long from the GOP. The Republican Party is not salvageable. Tea Party!!?

  • opinionatedhermit

    “this kind of vitriol and aggression is aimed only at the Conservatives in their own party.”
    -Mark Levin reading commentary


    Thank you.

    • Patriot077

      Not to be picky, but the RedState author is Daniel Horowitz. I always have to check myself when I’m reading his blogs as I automatically think David when I see Horowitz 🙂

      Though i thank David Horowitz, from the bottom of my heart, for all his many years exposing the radicals.

      • opinionatedhermit

        Oh, man.

        I feel foolish….. On, the other hand. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

        My mistake. I heard the name, Horowitz and went all warm and fuzzy inside. I really like David Horowitz. But, Daniel is an absolute gem as well.

        More to the point: As someone who likes to hang around Scoop, I should not have made a rookie mistake…….My bad ……. thanks again. 🙂

        • Patriot077

          Something about that Horowitz name makes me warm and fuzzy too. David is so famous and highly regarded by us that it’s a really easy mistake to make. It will be my turn next 🙂

  • Rshill7

    Boehner consolidating power. That’s a crying shame.

  • Rshill7

    “Oh for crying out loud!”, he cried.

    • sDee

      I believe Boehner wept with relief that as Speaker he would be able to deliver the chit the establishment had called in on him. Whatever that chit held, Boehner intends to deliver what they demand. Our freedom.

      He is beneath contempt.

  • wolfveryne

    Simple ,, We The People just need to “PRIMARY” each and everyone of these RINO GOP’ers ,, make them “PAY” for every Election . Time to “Sling some Mud ” !

  • GetWhatYouPayFor

    These guys are worse than the Dems, simply because I expect better from them. I am with those who demand a third party. RINO’s can back down or lose forever. Let’s see what is more important to them.

  • proudhispanicconservative

    I swear I want to throw my computer through the window, then I thought who will pay for it once is gone. This [email protected] guy is got me so pissed off I want to really get out of the republican party, and not vote ever. I swear we are watching the destruction of this great country, not only from the devilcrats, but now from our own party. It is sad that we have no recourse to take. I remember during one of Romney’s campaign stops in Ohio, they brought out John Boehner out and he was applauded, which I found to be disgusting, what has this idiot done in his reign as speaker of the house, the answer is a big NOTHING.
    God has mysterious ways of working, maybe by not getting Romney elected we dodged a bullet, because we were going to get another Rino republican, which at the end does not help the conservative movement, if by some miracle we are able to elect a real conservative to represent us, maybe the republican party is not going to die, but if we choose another moderate, you can say goodbye to the party of Lincoln.

  • Patriot077

    I wonder if Michele Bachmann is going to keep her chairs on the Intelligence Committee and Financial Services. She has a strong conservative voice on both these critical committees. We already know how Boehner treated her for inquiring about the security clearance process.

  • sDee

    Why is Boehner proactively working out a tax plan with Harry Reid when the Senate will not pass a budget?

    At this point let all the tax cuts expire. Refuse any and all legislation until Congress performs its most essential obligation.

    This is not a lawful Constitutional government. It is a bloated banana republic running on steroids and PCP.

  • warpmine

    Why not, Queen of the damned, Nancy Pelosi, did it. Just following in the footsteps of dictators. Ready for that revolution yet.

    I knew this was going to be the case with both sides telling us to STFU and likewise the only thing that will unseat these a$$wipes would be a violent revolt coming from the general populous.

  • Sober_Thinking

    So can we all agree that a third party is the only way out?

    • Don’t see why we shouldn’t the party line is to skewed together to tell which is which any more.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Yeah, that’s sort of my point too. Dems and GOP both wear suits and ties… one wears blue ties and one wears red ones.

        I think the difference is that Tea Party folks have infiltrated the GOP and that brings some hope… but clowns like Boehner are working to diminish their impact. So hopefully, we can save most of those freshman with a new party. It’s a pipe dream… but the GOP is not doing much to fix their party – for the good anyway.

  • aZjimbo

    Now that Mark has me more depressed.

  • Conniption Fitz

    Boehner showed his true colors…under a thin veneer he’s as Democrat as Christie.

  • ApplePie101

    Boehner and his acolytes will do what they please, because they run the republican party. However, there’s a swift way to remove him from power, if enough conservatives have the intestinal fortitude to do it: the Tea Party Caucus should split off and form a constitutional party. The noxiousness of having Nancy Pelosi back in the speaker’s chair would be offset by having a real opposition party active in congress, one not subject to rules and policies of the RNC. At present the democrats have no opposition whatsoever.

  • BS61

    I despise Boehner!
