Speaker of the House John Boehner will leave Congress at the end of October

(Sep. 25, 2015) — Major media are reporting on Friday morning that Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives John Boehner has tendered his resignation not only from the speakership, but also from Congress, effective at the end of next month.

Boehner became Speaker in early 2011 after the November 2010 elections gave the House a Republican majority.

The New New York Times is reporting that the 65-year-old representative from Ohio “was trying to craft a solution to keep the government open through the rest of the year, but was under pressure from a growing base of conservatives who told him that they would not vote for a bill that did not defund Planned Parenthood,” a purported women’s health organization funded for years by Congress but recently exposed as having engaged in the business of selling body parts from extracted fetuses, including some who may have been alive when their organs were harvested.

CNN reported that Boehner faced increasing pressure from fellow Republicans to take a harder line against Planned Parenthood and other issues.  In January, just after the new Congress was seated, a group of Republicans sought to replace Boehner, with several running against him for the nomination.

According to Maricopa County Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo, whose team found that Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form are “computer-generated forgeries,” Boehner was responsible for blocking any investigation by Congress that might have taken place over the last several years.

According to The Times, Boehner had an opportunity to meet with Pope Francis privately on Thursday in addition to the pontiff’s address to Congress at 10:00 a.m. EDT. Boehner informed his Republican colleagues at an unspecified time this morning of his decision.

Boehner was facing a primary challenge from John Winteregg, who unsuccessfully challenged Boehner for the seat in Ohio’s eighth Congressional District in 2014.  Boehner has served in Congress since his election in 1990.

Winteregg strongly opposes continued funding of Planned Parenthood.

    John has some kind of “good guy” mentality that doesn’t fit in DC. You need Bruce Lee operatives to blast through the trash that has piled up in DC since WWII. We need to clean out DC halls of shame, term limits, 50% reduction in all “entitlements” to discourage open theft, removal of ALL “Security” for people out of office, government housing in DC as in town houses-not $1.5 to $5 million dollar homes with spiral staircases and no accountability as a reward, common class traveling, removal of all free college attendance for children of politicians at taxpayer expense, removal of “limo” service and expensive “services” treating these public servants as “royalty” when they are “public servants/public trustees” that are supposed to serve America and not themselves. They should be treated just as our Military Families and have to live in modest housing and practice a frugal lifestyle just as Veterans who are treated like servants for the criminal elements being over paid in DC for destroying the country that provides their paychecks and graft they are so happy to receive.

    He should be tried for treason. He should not “go softly into that good night”. No retirement part. No gold watch.
