Has Speaker of the House John Boehner been bought by special interests?

(Jul. 31, 2015) — Please watch the two below-listed very short videos; by clicking on the link, you will fully understand just how Speaker Boehner and Senate Majority Leader McConnell have betrayed what American citizens voted for in 2014 by ramming the SECRET 800-page Fast Track Trade Promotional (TPP) Bill and the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) Bill through Congress. Nearly four weeks after it was signed into law, American citizens are still not being permitted to read it.

TPP and TPA violate the US Constitution and eliminate US sovereignty in favor of International Tribunals.  The Republican leadership ignored the demands of millions of Americans who have been demanding that Congress reduce illegal immigration by a substantial majority of 3 to 1 in a national opinion poll and is treating American citizens as if they have no right to know what law they have passed—hiding the fact that it violates the US Constitution.  Even though the Republican Congress controls the power of the purse, Obama has not lost a single major policy battle since Cong. Boehner became Speaker of the House in 2010; in fact, Obama is delighted with Boehner’s Speakership.  On July 3rd, when Obama signed the Unconstitutional SECRET TPP/TPA bills into law, Boehner and McConnell were nowhere to be found; they were hiding during the signing ceremony.   That law is a thorn in the side of every American voter who worked tirelessly to give the US House a conservative majority.

Both Democrat and Republican Congressmen received over $200 million in payments from the International Chamber of Commerce to vote for the TPA Bill (the US Chamber of Commerce is no longer a US Chamber; most members are now anti-American foreign corporations who control the Speaker and the Senate Majority Leader with financial payoffs).  If the TPA Bill hadn’t passed, the provisions in the SECRET TPP Bill stated it would not have become effective.  Millions of dollars in payments that were made to members of Congress by the International Chamber of Commerce as outlined in the below-listed article were used to bribe Congressmen.

Speaker Boehner received $5.3 million, Cong. Ryan received $2.4 million, and it was reported that McConnell received $9 million to ram TTP through Congress for Obama.  Their complicity and close cooperation with Obama, Pelosi, and Reid is what guaranteed the payoffs of millions of dollars to them; their support for TPP/TPA will result in permitting Obama to bring in millions of non-Christian illegal aliens from 50 countries (including Mexico) to enter and work in the US.  Millions of illegal aliens added to the 20 million illegal aliens already here will destabilizing the US unemployed work force of 104 million Americans and strike another blow to the free enterprise system.

Millions of illegal aliens from 50 countries will be able to unfairly compete with 104 million unemployed Americans and 46 million Americans on Food Stamps because 5 or 6 illegals cohabiting in the same apartment will be able to work at a much lower wage than Americans can afford to do.  Unlimited entry of foreign workers into the US,with no background investigations to determine if they have terrorist ties will continue to violate federal immigration laws (ISIS terrorists have let it be known that they plan to enter the US using the TPP as cover).

The FBI recently informed Congress that over 200 Muslim immigrants, who were put on a fast track for US Citizenship by Obama, are now fighting with ISIS killing Christians in Iraq. Because the SECRET TPP passed, the massive pending entry of illegal aliens will effectively eliminate US immigration controls because a percentage of the millions of foreigners whose backgrounds will not be reviewed for terrorist ties will pose a very serious terrorist threat to the National Security of the United States.  The SECRET TPP/TPA Law is not only leaving the porous southern border wide open, but it has effectively eliminated “all” US borders.

Congressional sources reported that Boehner has withheld millions of dollars of campaign support for conservative congressmen who voted in favor of their constituents’ conscience and refused to support TPP.  In some cases, Congressmen lost assignments or were ridiculed, mocked, and relentlessly pressured because they wouldn’t vote for the SECRET Unconstitutional TPP Bill, or the TPA Bill–very few Congressmen who voted for the TPP Bill even read its 800 pages.

Why does Rep. Paul Ryan support TPP so strongly when millions of Americans do not?

We object to the way that Speaker Boehner and Cong. Ryan meted out punishment against some of the endorsed and elected Combat Veterans For Congress who didn’t toe the line but instead, voted against the unconstitutional 800-page SECRET TPP/TPA Bills.  They voted against it because it violated the Constitutional authority of Congress, violated the sovereignty of the United States in favor of International Tribunals, because no American citizen has ever been allowed to read what is in the SECRET TPP Law, and they opposed Cong. Paul Ryan’s steady stream of misinformation about what he was alleging was in the Unconstitutional SECRET TPP bill and the TPA Bill. 

The following Combat Veterans For Congress refused to support that Unconstitutional and SECRET TPP Bill:

Cong Duncan D. Hunter, Maj-USMCR (R-CA-50)

Cong Steve Pearce, Capt-USAF (R-NM-2)

Cong Paul Cook, Col-USMC (R-CA-8)

Cong Chris Gibson, Col-USA (R-NY-20)

Cong Scott Perry, Col/PA-ARNG (R-PA-4)

Cong Steve Russell, LTC-USA (Ret) (Ranger) (R-OK-5)

Cong James Bridenstine, LCDR-USNR (R-OK-1)

The new TPP law is not and has never has been about “Free Trade;” the nation already had “Free Trade” without the need for the 800-page SECRET TPP Bill, and the 196-page TPA Bill that a plurality of members of Congress never read before they voted for them.  The American voters should ask their congressmen during the congressional recess why the TTIP and the TISA portions of both bills are still cloaked in SECRECY, even after they were signed into law on July 3rd.  The US government is a Republic, not a dictatorship run by five individuals  (Obama, Boehner, McConnell, Pelosi, and Reid).   In 2016, the American voters should elect new members of Congress who then elect leaders of Congress who will protect and defend the US Constitution from the repeated assault by the caucus of Progressives, Leftist, Marxists, and Communist members of Congress.

Speaker Boehner and Leader McConnell not only betrayed the American voters for millions of dollars in payoffs, but they fully funded Obamacare; amnesty for 5 million illegal aliens to whom Obama planned to give amnesty; and the federal Common Core curriculum, pushing it into American schools through the 50 State Education Departments.  They have continued to refuse to enact legislation to close the wide-open southern border, never opposed Obama’s use of taxpayer dollars to cover the cost of the UN Resettlement Program for hundreds of thousands of Muslims while excluding the resettlement of over 300,000 Christians fleeing ISIS genocide in the Greek Catholic Refugee Program; they have struck a secret deal with Pelosi and Reid to give Congress special exemptions from Obamacare and have not used the power of the purse to prevent Obama from degrading the strength of the US Armed Forces to levels below the strength they had prior to World War I.   The congressional leadership has failed to oppose Obama’s devastating “changes” in America’s family values and the US Armed Forces.  American voters should insist that their congressmen make “change” in the leadership of Congress and elect leaders who will oppose the devastating Socialist  “changes” Obama has been making in the Republic.

The Congressional leaders allowed Obama to reverse the Constitution’s safeguards put in place by the Founding Fathers which require a two-thirds vote of Congress in order to pass the Iranian International Nuclear Weapons Treaty.  Instead they reversed that process and are now requiring a two-thirds vote of Congress in order to be able to defeat the flawed Iranian International Nuclear Weapons Treaty (while permitting Obama to call the International Treaty an “Agreement”).   American voters should ask their congressmen during the recess why they allowed the constitutional safeguards to be reversed by the congressional leaders.

Almost $200 Million Donated to Representatives to Pass TPA

June 16, 2015   Paola Casale

Many think our government is for sale. However, by taking a look at the facts below provided by the Open Secrets, it is easy to understand where they are coming from. Looking back at Friday the 12th, the House voted on Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), the controversial bill that gives power to the executive branch to negotiate treaties. TPA limit’s Congress’ ability to better a trade deal by subjecting members of Congress to 90 days of reviewing the trade agreement, prohibiting any amendments on the implementing legislation, and giving them an up or down vote. TPA passed with a mere 219-211 vote with only 218 needed to pass. The real shocker comes from the amount of money each Representative received for a yes vote. In total, $197,869,145 was given to Representatives for a yes vote where as $23,065,231 was given in opposition.

  • John Boehner (R-OH) received $5.3 million for a “yea” vote and was the highest paid legislator.
  • Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) received $2.4 million for his “yea” vote.
  • Paul Ryan (R-WI) received $2.4 million for a “yea” vote and came in at the third highest paid legislator.
  • Pat Tiberi (R-OH) follows Paul Ryan, coming in the fourth spot having received $1.6 million for his “yea” vote.
