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.

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.

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.

Washington Examiner: Citizens United demands answers in State Dept. coverup

David Bossie, president of Citizens United, demanded answers to questions raised by leaked inspector general documents that suggest high-level officials in Hillary Clinton's State Department interfered with internal investigations.

"In the interests of open government, transparency and integrity, Secretary Clinton should immediately disclose the names of the senior State Department officials mentioned" as interfering with investigations in a 2012 draft of a report, Bossie said Wednesday.

Bossie cited a passage from the draft that alluded to an unnamed official who had allegedly stymied a criminal investigation into an ambassador.

Early drafts of a February 2013 inspector general report show officials removed unflattering passages in late 2012 before releasing it publicly.

Washington Examiner: Hillary's officials cut criticisms out of State Dept. reports

State Department Inspector General officials edited out passages of a high-profile report in 2013 that could have embarrassed Hillary Clinton just days before she quit President Obama's Cabinet.

The officials excised details of a cover up of misconduct by Clinton's security team.

The edits raise concerns that investigators were subjected to "undue influence" from agency officials.

The Washington Examiner obtained earlier drafts of the report which differ markedly from the final version. References to specific cases in which high-level State officials intervened and descriptions of the extent and frequency of those interventions appear in several early drafts but were later eliminated.

Washington Examiner: State Department ignores lawsuit over records linking Boko Haram and Clinton Foundation

A conservative group is suing the State Department in an effort to find out whether the agency's refusal to place Boko Haram on the terrorist watch list while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state had anything to do with the fact that a high-level Nigerian official was a major Clinton Foundation donor and close friend of the former president.

Citizens United, a conservative nonprofit, brought the case to court after the State Department ignored its request for records about the Chagoury Group, a sprawling Nigerian company headed by a Clinton friend and financial supporter of Clinton causes, Gilbert Chagoury.

Chagoury donated between $1 million and 5 million to the Clinton Foundation, donor records show.

More than 30 days have passed since Citizens United first filed the lawsuit without a response of any kind from the State Department.

Newsmax TV: David Bossie: Scandal Response 'Right Out of Clinton Playbook'

A Clinton critic says the email scandal surrounding Hillary Clinton is straight from the "Clinton playbook."

David Bossie, the president and chairman of Citizens United, tells Ed Berliner on Newsmax TV's "The Hard Line" he is not surprised how Clinton, who is running for president, is acting regarding her role in the scandal.

"It is right out of the Clinton playbook," Bossie says. "Play beat the clock, run the clock out as long as possible, make this just a partisan attack, make this about enemies of the Clintons, the vast right-wing conspiracy. Those things will all come into play after they attack their accusers, after they blame other people for their woes."

National Review: Meet Cody Shearer, the Strangest Character in Hillary’s Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy

And you thought Sidney Blumenthal was shady.

Few people have heard of Cody Shearer, the unsanctioned diplomat, private eye, and Clinton flunky whose name surfaced in connection with the so-called intelligence reports Sidney Blumenthal was channeling to Hillary Clinton during her time at the State Department. But this shadowy fixture of the Clinton machine was everywhere in the 1990s — including war-torn Bosnia, where he became the subject of a State Department investigation after he represented himself as an agent of the U.S. government and took cash from a genocidal warlord.

Now evidence suggests Shearer, working with his partner Blumenthal, was up to something similar during the 2011 revolution in Libya. And like in the 1990s, the Clintons were lurking on the margins. Much of the intelligence contained in memos fed to the Clinton State Department by Blumenthal was not just self-serving — it was provided by someone with a history of misleading foreign sources, misrepresenting himself as an agent of the U.S. government, and creating trouble for both himself and the United States abroad.

The Daily Caller: Citizens United President: Hillary’s Desire To Pack Courts To Overturn SCOTUS Is ‘Surreal’

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton promised to pack the courts with judges who would rule in favor of overturning the Citizens United case, and Citizens United president David Bossie is calling such a pledge “surreal.”

“I will do everything I can to appoint Supreme Court justices who protect the right to vote and do not protect the right of billionaires to buy elections,” Clinton told supporters during her trip to Iowa recently, The New York Times reported.

“Hillary Clinton is saying that she will appoint a person to the Supreme Court who will not uphold and defend the First Amendment ought to frighten the American people,” Bossie told One America News. He added that Clinton “fundamentally, wants to throw away the First Amendment based on a case that was critical of [her] … is a little surreal.”

National Review: Teflon Tony Rodham, the Clintons’ Shady Id

Sitting in a courtroom three years ago, after skipping out on a sizable legal bill, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s youngest brother struck a reassuring tone: Don’t worry, the money is coming.

“I deal through the Clinton Foundation,” Tony Rodham said, according to court transcripts uncovered by the New York Times. He gave his word that Hillary and Bill were setting him up with Haitian-government permits to build a $22 million housing development in the earthquake-stricken country.

“I hound my brother-in-law, because it’s his fund that we’re going to get our money from,” Rodham explained, promising a $1 million check once the Haitian-government paved the way, enough both to cover the outstanding legal fees and take his family to Disney World.
