During the 2013 government shutdown fight, Rep. David Nunes, R-Calif., referred to the extremist members advocating a shutdown as “lemmings with suicide vests.” But the far-right flank, often called the “Suicide Caucus,” has only grown in power since then and has recently gained momentum in its push to remove John Boehner, who they say hasn't done enough to fight President Obama, from his position as speaker of the House. The "Suicide Caucus" is particularly angry that the House Republican leadership approved an increase in the debt ceiling and hasn... MORE >

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, told radio host Jan Mickelson on Tuesday that House Speaker John Boehner tried to punish him for bucking House leadership by denying him tickets to see the Supreme Court oral arguments in King v. Burwell, the Affordable Care Act case, but then Chief Justice John Roberts saved the day in the end by finding him a seat. “He’s also trying to block me from hearing oral arguments before the Supreme Court, on Obamacare, for example, so I went to Chief Justice Roberts and he gave me a couple tickets on his special front bench and we went ahead anyway,” King...

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, known as “The Hammer” for his hardball political tactics, assailed John Boehner in an interview yesterday for punishing several congressmen who voted against his re-election as House speaker. While speaking with “Washington Watch” host and Family Research Council head Tony Perkins, DeLay praised the Republicans who challenged Boehner’s third term as speaker while lamenting that members of the GOP conference “are at each other’s throat.” He urged listeners to “tell your own congressman that you are...

Rep. Ted Yoho, the Florida Republican who helped lead yesterday’s unsuccessful revolt against John Boehner’s re-election as House speaker, warned after the vote that attempts by the House GOP leadership to punish defectors by removing them from committee posts are akin to communist oppression. “We’ve grown up in a country that honors free speech,” Yoho told WorldNetDaily’s Radio America. “If I can’t speak what’s on my mind, if I can’t do what the people of my district sent me up here [to do] and have that voice of dissension without...

Steve Deace mocks John Boehner: “I guess all the Tea Party leaders I’ve had on my nationally syndicated radio show calling for President Barack Obama’s impeachment the past 16 months were tools of ‘a scam started by Democrats,’ and they didn’t even know it.” Religious Right activists who sought to undo Houston’s anti-discrimination ordinance failed to deliver enough valid signatures to put a repeal measure on the ballot. We are... MORE >
