NC Congressman Files Measure to Remove Boehner as Speaker

– 28 July 2015 –

Patulcius-sqVia Fox News:

In a move unprecedented in the history of the House of Representatives, a Republican lawmaker filed a motion Tuesday to remove House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, from his post, in another sign of dissatisfaction with Boehner’s leadership by a number of House conservatives.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., filed the resolution — a “motion to vacate the chair” — late Tuesday, claiming that he “has endeavored to consolidate power and centralize decision-making, bypassing the majority of the 435 Members of Congress and the people they represent.”

The proposal was referred to a committee stocked with leadership loyalists, and therefore unlikely to emerge.

The motion says that Boehner has caused the power of Congress to atrophy, “thereby making Congress subservient to the Executive and Judicial branches, diminishing the voice of the American People.”

Symbolic or not, this is a refreshing move from a junior congressman.

In 2012, Mark Meadows was elected to North Carolina’s redrawn 11th Congressional district.  Previously the district had included the homosexual-Wiccan bastion of Asheville, a sad case of degenerate outsiders taking over a formerly decent Southern town. Because Asheville is surrounded by very conservative, old-fashioned Southerners, the former 11th district toggled between Republican and Democratic representatives.

After the 2010 Census, however, the Republican state leaders fixed this problem with Asheville by transferring that Sodom of the Blue Ridge Mountains to the 10th district, where it is overwhelmed by the conservative western Charlotte suburbs, causing predictable howls of hypocritical outrage from the Left.  The new 11th district includes some of the most conservative territory in the country, the western tip of North Carolina’s Appalachian mountains, a land of independent Scots-Irish-descended hillbillies who hate the establishment.

South Carolina’s 11th district, one of the most conservative in the country now that Asheville has been removed.

Thus Mark Meadows is safe to propose a measure, however futile, to revoke Boehner’s speakership. Meadows’ conservative constituents, like most of the rest of the country’s, have surely berated their representative to take a stand against the “cuckservatives” who lead the Republican party.  But unlike the other representatives, Meadows has actually stuck out his neck in the face of a hostile Republican elite.

And even though Meadows probably doesn’t have to worry about losing his seat to a Republican-funded opponent or to the redrawing of his district (yet), he hasn’t made any friends in Washington because of this:

Speaking on background to scrums of reporters lingering near the Speaker’s Lobby, some lawmakers dismissed the attention-grabbing move as a gambit by Meadows to gin up fundraising. They also accused the North Carolina congressman of needlessly creating a distraction that could overshadow what many Republicans would prefer to focus for the next several weeks: Bashing President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.

Mark Meadows has shown some much-needed fortitude in the face of a mostly impotent Republican cuckold Congress, led in the House by the greatest crocodile-teared political adulterer of the lot, John Blunder.  Perhaps Meadows’ proposal will inspire others to find their spines.

I hope this move pays off for him.

  2. I wonder how conservative the South would be if not for all the foreigners.

    • I thought to try and deduce this before quickly realizing that it would be pretty difficult to figure out. By foreigners, I would guess that you’d include at least the second generations, and probably more. Foreigners tend to vote D vs. R in similar proportions to Jews, which means something like 3/4 Dem. Or do you include Yankees as foreigners? 😀 Including them would make the South more liberal yet, especially on the social issues. The large metro areas are holding sway more and more, and they are increasingly foreign or non-Southern. And I know that you know all of this, but if you only look at the votes of Southerners whose grand-parents were all Southerners, then you’d have a very conservative electorate indeed, much more similar to that of the rural Southern districts.
