    Boehner is Johnny-come-lately in court plea to stop amnesty

    Letters campaign charges he squandered chance to close checkbook, bring it down

    Published: 3 hours ago

    Media outlets across the landscape this week have been talking about House Speaker John Boehner going to court to try to stop President Obama’s executive action granting amnesty to illegal aliens.

    Millions could benefit from Obama’s action at a cost that is unknown but undoubtedly could reach the billions.

    But a “Dump Boehner Now” letter writing campaign that allows voters to reach every single Republican House member with hard-copy letters asking them to reconsider their choice as speaker says that opportunity already came and went, with Boehner failing to take advantage.

    Joseph Farah, WND founder and campaign organizer, set up the letters campaign. He said the opposition to Boehner is based on the Obamacare and amnesty program that voters rejected in the 2014 midterm elections.

    The letter explains to members of the U.S. House that two issues have “prompted Americans to turn in droves to the Republican Party in November 2014 – Barack Obama’s blatantly unconstitutional executive action to provide amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, and the deliberately deceptive restructuring of America’s health-care system through Obamacare, which threatens to unravel the greatest health delivery system in the world.”

    Pointing out that Republicans before the election “solemnly vowed to STOP this lame-duck president,” the letter states: “Now you have the power, right and duty to stop him.

    “But it won’t happen with John Boehner leading you. You know this to be true. The trillion-dollar budget deal is just the latest proof that Boehner is not capable of leading the House to victory during this critical period.”

    The letter referenced Boehner’s agreement during the lame-duck Congress to fund Obamacare and amnesty into 2015.

    The London Daily Mail reported House Republicans will sue President Obama over his executive actions on immigration. Boehner announced the plan in a closed-door meeting with lawmakers Tuesday, according to a person in the room.

    A key tea-party leader has endorsed the letters campaign, which already has dispatched some 575,000 messages to GOP House members.

    “Absolutely, I want people storming the halls of Congress,” Judson Phillips, of Tea Party Nation, told WND. “Melting the phone lines and anything else.”

    “So, I love [WND CEO Joseph Farah's] letter writing idea.”

    Recruit your friends, neighbors, and fellow commuters to the “Don’t Be Yellow: Dump Boehner Now” campaign with this exclusive bumper sticker.

    Phillips explained in a Washington Times commentary why he thinks Boehner should be replaced.

    “A month after its incredible victory, the GOP squandered its mandate, surrendering to the Democrats,” he wrote. “The GOP-led House of Representatives did not proclaim its mandate and hold off on major decisions until the Republican majority in the Senate was sworn in. No, they went to the GOP position of preemptive surrender and gave President Obama and the Democrats almost everything they wanted.

    “Despite the pleas and demands from the base, the GOP did nothing to stop Mr. Obama’s executive amnesty. They even rewarded left-wing billionaires who had spent millions to keep the Democrats in power by extending so-called ‘Green Energy’ subsidies,” he wrote. “The architect of the Republican surrender was House Speaker John Boehner.”


    Stacks of boxes of letters before being delivered to GOP members of the House

    In addition to the hundreds of thousands of letters, the Washington Examiner reported: “There were hundreds of them, jamming the phone lines of the district and Capitol offices of dozens of House GOP lawmakers. The callers were not angry about legislation. Nor were they asking for help with a local matter. They were demanding their representative vote against Boehner … in his bid to win election to a third term as speaker.”

    And there’s a move by a couple of dozen House members, led by Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, to create a new caucus that would urge bold, conservative actions on immigration, Obamacare and other issues.

    There was no surrender. Repeat, There was no surrender. Boehner is not weak or incompetent. He is an Open Borders Repub who is clever and conniving. The Repub leadership's big money donors want a United States which is run for the convenience of corporations and the One Percenters. Achieving this goal means causing people to be so insecure about even having a job that they don't want to make waves. So Boehner is doing everything he can to flood our country with the surplus labor that will keep people anxious.

    We can be certain that there is no need for immigration of any kind, because even our STEM graduates are having difficulty getting jobs in their fields, and because wages are not rising as (official) unemployment is falling.
