Breitbart: MARK LEVIN’S BOOK ‘PLUNDER AND DECEIT’

With the direction our society is taking, I get more and more concerned for our children and grandchildren with each passing day. ,p>Our youth are growing up in liberal school systems with books teaching same sex marriage. We see teachers pushing for sex education, birth control, and providing condoms to kids who are years from hitting puberty. Climate change and income equality dialogues race through school halls, libraries, and activist groups across the nation.

Students are inspired by so-called “heroes” like Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara, an evil Marxist murderer, but can’t recognize Ronald Reagan, one of our greatest Presidents, as anything more than a Hollywood actor. Colleges, entertainment, and the media indoctrinate our young adults, molding them into on-fire progressives who are used as ‘sheeple’ to achieve the liberal left’s agenda.

Daily Caller: Emails Show Top Hillary Aide Complaining That Clinton Email Account Wasn’t Working

A 2012 email exchange in which Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin complains that her Clinton email account was down raises new questions about the national security implications of Clinton’s private email server arrangement.

Citizens United obtained the Oct. 10, 2012, emails between Abedin and Stephanie Streett, the executive director of the Clinton Foundation. Citizens United has filed several lawsuits for emails from Clinton and several of her top aides. The conservative watchdog group is trying to find out whether Clinton used her position as secretary of state to help the Clinton Foundation or any of its donors.

McClatchy: GOP says State Department may be hindering Clinton email probe

Amid new revelations about U.S. intelligence information on Hillary Clinton’s private email account, congressional Republicans are demanding to know whether the former secretary of state, her lawyer and the State Department have hindered investigators or compromised classified material.

Clinton was questioned Thursday during a presidential campaign stop about the rapidly widening furor as the State Department revealed her former top aides have been asked to produce their emails for review.

The fallout stems from Clinton’s 2009 decision to route all of her official emails through a private server at her home in Chappaqua, N.Y. – a decision that has roiled the nation’s intelligence community due to concerns that she and her aides may have failed to sufficiently guard secret information.

The latest drama has surrounded Clinton’s attorney, David Kendall.

John Boehner coup: Mark Meadows files motion to oust House Speaker

Tea party champion Rep. Mark Meadows filed a motion Tuesday to oust House Speaker John A. Boehner from his leadership post, escalating the feud between a faction of conservative lawmakers and the Republican leadership.

Mr. Meadows, North Carolina Republican, filed a motion to “vacate the chair,” which could force a no-confidence vote by the full chamber and result in the removal of Mr. Boehner as speaker.

Citizens United Calls On Attorney General Loretta Lynch To Appoint Special Counsel To Investigate Hillary Clinton Email Allegations

Today Citizens United President David N. Bossie Issued The Following Statement:

President Obama and his administration, specifically Attorney General Loretta Lynch, have a clear conflict of interest when it comes to any federal investigation or inquiry into the Hillary Clinton email allegations.

Democrat political appointees in the Obama Administration can’t be trusted to run an independent, unbiased, and thorough review of allegations surrounding someone who could very well be the Democrat nominee for president of the United States. Furthermore, Attorney General Lynch has a personal conflict of interest in this matter since she was first appointed United States Attorney by President Bill Clinton in 1999.

Only an impartial special counsel can investigate these allegations in a way that will restore a level of public trust in this Justice Department. Attorney General Lynch has an opportunity to transcend politics and move this investigation outside of the Justice Department by appointing a well-respected special counsel with credibility on both sides of the aisle. Lynch’s predecessor Eric Holder had a similar opportunity during the IRS political targeting allegations and he chose to keep that investigation under his control, which continues to raise questions to this day.

Breitbart: Bossie: The John Boehner Problem

After three election cycles and more than four and half years, grassroots conservatives have grown tired of waiting for John Boehner to pass the conservative agenda he’s repeatedly promised. Time and time again, Boehner has failed to provide a vision or use the robust majority in the U.S. House - which conservatives provided him - to advance our policies. Instead, Speaker Boehner has allowed President Obama to set the debate, set the terms, and summarily clean our clocks. Meekly, Boehner drifts along aimlessly and legislates by cliff and crisis, instead of bringing forward an optimistic agenda of bold colors that the American people crave.

It looks as though his empty promises and inaction may be catching up to him. Citizens United recently surveyed a cross-section of our members nationwide about congressional approval and whether their Member of Congress should vote to re-elect John Boehner as Speaker of the House. Of the 4,025 polled, less than 6 percent would want their Representative to re-elect Boehner as House Speaker if the election were held today. Grassroots conservatives are through being patient with John Boehner.

Breitbart: EXCLUSIVE – NINE IN TEN CONSERVATIVE ACTIVISTS SAY DUMP BOEHNER

The conservative activist group Citizens United is releasing a new poll of its membership, which surveyed some 4,000 activists across the country. Just two percent approve of the job Congress is doing. More than 90 percent want their Member of Congress to replace current House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH).

“After four and a half years as Speaker, it’s become crystal clear that grassroots conservatives are through being patient with John Boehner,” David N. Bossie, president of Citizens United, said in a release. “Conservatives are clearly ready for new leadership in the U.S. House.”

The next scheduled vote for Speaker of the House will occur after the 2016 Presidential elections. Republicans are widely expected to maintain their majority in the House.

Republicans reclaimed the House majority after the 2010 midterms elections, largely on opposition to ObamaCare and a failed economic stimulus package.

Since Republicans took control of the House, the nation’s total debt burden has grown almost 40 percent, rising from around $13 trillion in 2010 to $18 trillion today.

Citizens United Membership Wants Boehner Replaced As Speaker

Alarming Percentages Want Boehner Out, Disapprove Of Congress 

Washington, D.C. -- From July 20th to July 23rd, Citizens United surveyed a cross-section of our members nationwide about congressional approval and whether or not their Member of Congress should vote to re-elect John Boehner as Speaker of the House if the election were held today. 4,025 Citizens United members participated in the poll.

“After four and a half years as Speaker, it’s become crystal clear that grassroots conservatives are through being patient with John Boehner. Less than 6 percent of those polled would want their Member of Congress to re-elect Congressman Boehner as Speaker if the election were held today. John Boehner has a problem with conservatives, because they are feeling used,” said David N. Bossie, president of Citizens United. “Conservatives put John Boehner in power, and they aren’t seeing the conservative agenda they were promised in 2010, 2012, and 2014. Conservatives are clearly ready for new leadership in the U.S. House. Furthermore, public polling indicates that congressional approval averages a feeble 15 percent. Our survey – which only polled grassroots conservatives – has congressional approval at just over 2 percent and that is downright alarming,” Bossie continued.

“These results build on the attitudes found in our presidential preference poll from last month. Our membership is totally fed up with the Washington establishment and the failed status quo that has its grip on Congress,” said Bossie. “In Citizens United’s online presidential preference poll in June, the top four finishers – Dr. Carson, Gov. Walker, Sen. Cruz and Mr. Trump – all anti-Washington, anti-establishment candidates, took up a whopping 65 percent of the vote. Today’s results on Congress and Speaker Boehner echo those results wholeheartedly,” said Bossie. The results are as follows:

Question 1: Do you approve or disapprove of the job Congress is currently doing?

Approve: 2.3%

Disapprove: 95.4%

No Opinion: 1.9%

Question 2: If the election for Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives was being held today, would you want your Member of Congress to re-elect John Boehner as Speaker of the House?

Yes, Re-Elect Boehner As House Speaker: 5.6%

No, Don’t Re-Elect Boehner As House Speaker: 90.3%

No Opinion: 3.9%

Statement By Citizens United President David N. Bossie On The Continued Attempts To Revive The Export-Import Bank

The Export - Import Bank has been dead for three weeks and no one outside of Washington’s special interests noticed.

Grassroots conservatives put Republicans in the majority in Congress to reform a broken federal government.

It’s time for John Boehner to listen to those who made him Speaker.

Conservatives will be watching the actions of House leadership very closely in the coming days.

The Hill: House Republican says he's victim of retaliation by GOP leaders

Freshman Rep. Alex Mooney (R-W.Va.) says he’s the latest GOP lawmaker to face retaliation for bucking leadership last month and opposing a key procedural vote on major trade legislation.

In a letter obtained by The Hill, Mooney questioned why Rep. Tom Reed (R.N.Y.) deliberately excluded him as a co-sponsor of a bill to help Medicare-eligible diabetes patients gain coverage for glucose monitors.

“I understand that you and other supporters of the [diabetes bill] are concerned about having me as a cosponsor because I voted against … the rule on the Trade Promotion Authority legislation last month,” Mooney wrote in the letter. “I think it is important that Members of Congress be allowed to vote with their conscience without it negatively impacting our ability to work together.
