The congressional races were decided in 2014, and Democrats have stopped running attack ads against Republicans and vice versa. Congressional elections won’t be occurring for another two years, but one highly ranked leader in Congress is already running attack ads…against his OWN party.
Speaker of the House John Boehner, a supposed Republican, is running attack ads against the only Republicans in Congress willing to stand up to Obama’s unconstitutional rule of tyranny, the principled conservatives.
As The Hill reported, a Boehner group, the “American Action Network,” (AAN) whose board includes the speaker’s former chief of staff Barry Jackson, spent hundreds of thousands of dollars targeting three leading GOP conservatives, Jim Jordan (OH), Tim Huelskamp (KS) and Jim Bridenstine (OK), sliming the three congressmen for being soft on terrorism for trying to stop Obama’s illegal amnesty by defunding the related portion of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Conservatives are livid at Boehner’s unprecedented smears against his fellow Republicans, and rightfully so.
“It looks like cannibalism by [GOP] leadership to me,” said Iowa Congressman Steve King, one of the staunchest defenders of the Constitution who has aggressively fought to stop Obama’s unconstitutional royal edicts, as well as fighting to defund Obamacare. “I mean, when you go after your own people, what else would you call that?” Congressman King rhetorically asked.
Boehner’s ex-chief isn’t the only establishment Republican involved in AAN, but is only one of a group stocked full of big government RINOs:
Aside from Boehner’s ex-chief, the AAN board is loaded with GOP establishment allies, including former Republican National Committee chief of staff Mike Shields; Fred Malek, a former aide to Presidents Richard Nixon and George H.W. Bush; former Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.) and former Rep. Vin Weber (R-Minn.).
The perplexing ad buy by Boehner’s group is apparently a paranoid response to the launch of the new House Freedom Caucus, led by Jim Jordan, a group of almost 40 principled conservatives interested in upholding the U.S. Constitution and stopping Obama’s dictatorial acts on illegal amnesty, and a group that would likely vote to oust the pro-amnesty speaker in the future.
Not surprisingly, one of the biggest donors to AAN is none other than the Karl Rove affiliated Crossroads GPS, according to OpenSecrets.org.
Ironically, Republicans won decisively in the 2014 midterms on the promise that they would fight Obama’s illegal amnesty, as Boehner himself put it “tooth and nail,” a promise he made as recently as January 8, 2015.
Now, Boehner is attacking the very congressmen in his own party who vow to keep their election promise, a promise he repeated only weeks ago.
