Who is Revive America

Revive America USA's mission is to revive advance the Jeffersonian principles of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness of every American at every level of American government. Independent of any political party, Revive America USA is fiercely conservative. Our vision for America is to become that "shining city upon a hill", so eloquently described by President Ronald Reagan in his farewell address to the nation, on January 11, 1989.

The petition calls for an ousting of current Speaker John Boehner. As stated on the petition website:

"Are you sick and tired of Washington spending trillions of dollars we can't afford? While Democrats are the driving force behind running up our national debt, growing the size of the federal government and wasting our money, all too often Republicans, led by Speaker John Boehner, are happy to go along for the ride. Under Speaker Boehner, the House has repeatedly voted to increase the debt ceiling - pushing us deeper into debt than ever before, voted to fund Obamacare - a disaster which continues to get worse, and just agreed to a 1500+ page bill (most didn't read) that will cost $1.012 trillion in new federal spending for 2014. The American people are desperate for principled leadership in Washington, not "go-along-to-get-along" capitulation. Sign the petition now! Then contact your Representative and tell them you are ready for real leadership. Tell them to fire the Speaker!"

As of right now, there are 52,925 signatures asking for The Speaker to be fired.

How to Expose the Truth About Benghazi

From the Revive America Website:

Forcing the Hand of Speaker Boehner on Benghazi

Dear Conservative:

Every man has got a breaking point.

So when John Boehner said he’d ram through ‘Instant Amnesty’ with Pelosi-Democrat votes, a seething Rep. Dana Rohrabacher hit back hard, threatening to oust Boehner as House Speaker.

It was more than a threat. Rohrabacher was ready to back it up with action.

‘If Speaker Boehner moves forward and permits this to come to a vote even though the majority of the Republicans in the House… oppose… he should be removed as Speaker,’ said Rohrabacher.

Under the pressure of losing his Speakership, Boehner caved within 24-hours.

What does this say about Speaker Boehner? Just apply the right amount of pressure to Boehner’s weakest link (his Speakership), and he’ll buckle under the pressure.

We must take exactly the same approach with Speaker Boehner on Benghazi.

We must force his hand, and we must do so quickly and with action.

The fact is because of your support for our national grassroots campaign, Revive America had nearly brought Speaker Boehner to his knees on Benghazi only three weeks ago.

The Hill newspaper credited Revive with starting a ‘GOP Rebellion’ against Speaker Boehner on Benghazi.

In just days, we went from 48 to over 150 House Republican cosponsors – a majority of the Majority. In fact, the pressure became so intense that Speaker Boehner was forced to allow Chairman Darrell Issa to hold a one-day hearing on Benghazi.

But then on a Friday afternoon, the IRS scandal exploded, taking Benghazi off the front pages and out of the headlines.  It’s as simple as that. 

Consequently, all of the pressure we’d heaped upon Speaker Boehner for weeks dissipated overnight. 

Where are we today?  Here is the very latest:

Over two-thirds of all House Republicans – 158 cosponsors – support Rep. Frank Wolf’s House Select Committee to investigate Benghazi. 

Speaker Boehner, America’s last line of defense against Obama, continues to block the Select Committee.

He has strongly opposed a special Benghazi committee since last November.

As a result, America still does not know who issued that most cowardly and disgraceful order to our troops to ‘Stand Down’ – to abandon four Americans to slaughter.

What has Speaker Boehner’s failed approach to Benghazi accomplished?

Hillary Clinton is earning $250,000 a speech, and is poised to be President.

Obama, in between vacations, fundraisers, and golf outings, is arming Al Qaeda in Syria.

And Susan Rice, who gives every liar in Washington a bad name, got promoted to National Security Advisor.

Who said crime doesn’t pay!

On Benghazi, Hillary Clinton, Obama, and Susan Rice couldn’t ask for a better friend than John Boehner on Capitol Hill.

This is an outrage that cannot be allowed to stand!

We clearly must bring the fight directly to Speaker John Boehner. Will you stand with me in this fight?
