As the August recess comes to a close, the pressure is starting to heat up here in Southwest Ohio on Speaker of the House, John Boehner.
The Speaker has the power to bring bills to the floor of the House of Representatives. He also is the leader of the People’s House, which controls the purse strings of our government. All spending bills come from the House.
The power to bring bills to the floor and originate spending bills makes the Speaker one person in our government who has the power to bring a bit of Liberty back to America. Speaker Boehner can do this by not funding Obamacare through the upcoming continuing resolution. Ted Cruz is leading this fight in the Senate, read more about it here.
He also has the power to stop the amnesty bill in the Senate, by simply not bringing it to the floor of the House. Learn more about this debate here.
Both of these issues have sparked activist to hold a rally stating the Liberty minded position on the issue.
I hope you can join in on one or both of these events.

Exempt America from Obamacare: Rally at Boehner’s Troy Office
Date: Tuesday, August 27
Time: Praise and Prayer: 4:00 to 4:30pm Rally: 4:30 to 6:30pm
Location: Courthouse Plaza in Troy, Ohio
12 South Plum Street, Troy, Ohio 45373
Calling all freedom loving Americans to a rally at Speaker Boehner’s office in Troy, Ohio. We must insist that Speaker Boehner defunds Obamacare. This is our last chance to pull the plug on the bill that will change America forever.
This September, the House of Representatives will hold a vote to fund our government. They will either include money to fund the implementation of Obamacare or they will pass a resolution without the money…. It is up to the House, up to Speaker Boehner if that money is included. The House holds the purse strings of our government.
We must ‘speak’ our opinion to the Speaker. No funding for Obamacare. Let your opinion be heard on Tuesday, August 27th.
Speakers include Former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, Tea Party Patriots Founder Jenny Beth Martin and The Blaze’s Doc Thompson, with more speakers to come.
Rally for America: Citizens Rising Against Amnesty
Part of the ‘We are America Tour’
Date: Saturday, September 7th @ 2pm
Location: The Square @ Union Centre 9285 Centre Pointe Drive West Chester, OH 45069
RSVP Here! – http://rallyforamericaohio.eventbrite.com/
Confirmed Speakers Include: Doc Thompson from The Blaze with many more to come!!!
The site of the rally is in Speaker John Boehner’s district just a couple miles from his local West Chester office. This rally is being put together from grassroots efforts by patriots in Ohio and adjacent States. We also have the support of the Black American Leadership Alliance, Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), NumbersUSA and other organizations.
Our purpose is to let the House leadership, and by extension all House members, know that we do not want the Senate Comprehensive Immigration Bill (S744) to go to conference committee with the House. Any immigration bill that comes out of the House can cause it to go to conference with Senate Bill S744 which will surely result in amnesty.
While we do not yet have a full list of speakers they will be as dynamic and broad as what we experienced in DC. We will also have speakers who have experienced the loss of jobs due to illegal immigration. They have very compelling stories to tell. We will be doing everything we can to accommodate a very large crowd.
Unfortunately, while our voices and message are important, our numbers will speak the loudest. We need all of you to be present and it is in your backyard, not DC.
Bring your lawn chairs. Bring your neighbors.
