EXCLUSIVE – Liberty Caucus representative Lauren Boebert is expected to send a shot at the goal of House Republican leadership in his Saturday CPAC speech, demanding that a potential Republican majority aggressively enact several conservative priorities.
“I and my fellow warriors in the House Freedom Caucus are ready for battle,” Boebert, R-Colorado, plans to say in a speech Saturday at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas, according to a copy obtained by Fox News.
The comments suggest she may retain the support of Republicans seeking the House leadership pick should Republicans win a majority, including current Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, who plans to run for president. .
“I wish I could tell you that I have full faith in the Republican leadership in both the House and Senate to defund the deep state and hold the Biden regime accountable,” he is expected to say. “But I don’t. I’ve been let down too many times.
“And any member of Congress, from freshmen to leaders, who will not fight with me to end the medical tyranny, secure the southern border, and fire Anthony Fauci will not have my support. Not on his re-election and certainly not for speaker,” Boebert’s speech continues.
“The Freedom Caucus fired John Boehner, ran out paul ryan and we will not tolerate another Republican speaker who works more with Democrats than with Republicans.
“House Republicans must stop funding tyranny. I will not vote to fund a government that requires the COVID vaccine while allowing our country to be invaded by million unvaccinated foreigners. End the vax mandate for our hospital workers and service members, build the wall or I will vote to shut down the Biden bureaucrats.”
Boebert added: “Any bill that funds tyranny while our country is being invaded, my Freedom Caucus allies are a no, and I am hell.”
The salvo comes as Republicans are expected to win a majority in the House of Representatives in midterm elections.
That will help Republicans seeking to block the liberal policies proposed by President Biden and investigate his management with committee subpoena power. But it could also highlight divisions within the party as Republican leaders are forced to work with Biden and a possible Democratic majority in the Senate on bills that must be passed to fund the government, raise the debt limit and more.
Republican firebrands like Boebert and his fellow Freedom Caucus members often seek to use their influence on those bills to implement what they say are key conservative policies. Top Republicans, like former House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, often see the caucus as a thorn in their side.
“What Nancy Pelosi and other sane Democrats, the ones who have been around long enough to know how things work, are dealing with AOC and their squad reminds me a lot of what I had to deal with during my days as a Spokesman for the far right crackpots. of the Tea Party or the Freedom Caucus or whatever they call themselves,” Boehner wrote in his book, “On the House.”
The Freedom Caucus will exert much more influence if the Republican Party is in the majority. And Boebert is expected on Saturday to deliver a veiled blow to top Republicans, like McCarthy, Republican of California, demanding support in the implementation of the priority policies of the Freedom Caucus.
In addition to Boebert, Kimberly Guilfoyle and former President Donald Trump are scheduled to speak at CPAC.
