Rove Declares War On Tea Party
Breitbart Big Government, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:dman, 2/3/2013 3:39:33 PM

The battle for the heart and soul of the Republican Party has begun. On one side is the Tea Party. On the other side stand Karl Rove and his establishment team, posing as tacticians while quietly undermining conservatism. Yesterday, the New York Times reported that the “biggest donors in the Republican Party” have joined forces with Karl Rove and Steven J. Law, president of American Crossroads, to create the Conservative Victory Project. The Times reports that this new group will dedicate itself to “recruit seasoned candidates and protect Senate incumbents from challenges by far-right conservatives and Tea Party enthusiasts ..

Comments:
For those still under the delusion that the GOP can be recaptured by conservatives. The Establishment will not let go. Best option is a fresh start.

Poster 1: they win if we stay home. They are, Democrat and Republican, Government Elites intending as a class to keep their gravy train rolling. TEA Party folk know they are servants of the Electorate. These Bozos think we are, if anything, an annoying obstacle to their power - sort of like a dog that stays too close to your feet.

So now they are kicking the dog.

They´ll regret it dearly when the prowler crashes through the door they´ve left unlocked.

Karl Rove is behaving like an idiot. I am not an official member of any Tea Party, but I have attended three Tea Party meetings; I have seen nothing but patriotic, wonderful people of all ethnic groups. The first meeting I attending was under a canopy in front of a closed restaurant in Coral Gables, FLorida; hundreds were in attendance. The restaurant allowed us to use their bathrooms. The variety of ethnic groups was amazing. I was one of five Jews and yes there was a doctor and a lawyer. The rest of the people were business people, who largely were compromised of immigrants from South and Central America and Cuban Americans; there was a small contingent of American blacks. In the minority in this case were Anglo Americans as we are referred to in South Florida.

My next two meetings were in Palm Beach County, Florida where there were mostly Anglo Americans.

In no case was their any racisim spoken or implied. The speakers confined their subject matter to individual issues, mostly with reference how they were not in compliance with the Constitution

I read an article shortly after the election that Karl Rove and crew, including insiders in the Romney campaign, deliberately steered Romney the wrong way to keep the presidency spot open for Jeb Bush in 2016. It had a ring of truth to it but I thought I was being paranoid.

After this article, I´m not so sure. It´s time we purge ourselves of these interlopers playing God with our Republic and our lives. It may also be time for a third party if we can´t get rid of them.

There is no "Tea Party". There is a loose coalition of like-minded conservative voters who, originally, wanted to downsize government and restrain the growth of taxes. Now, there are offshoots who have different goals and some of them demand dedication to those goals from all. The minute the movement is organized and narrowly focused on something other than small government and lower taxes, it is something different from what we all started with. Shapiro is being hysterical. Karl Rove wants the same victories as the rest of us. But, he resists, as I do, the more radical individuals on our side. Rigid templates and purity tests have no place in a true tea party effort.

As posted up the line, the "Tea Party" is not a party. It originally represented a philosophy shared by many of us. Now it has morphed into something resembling a congressional bill, with bits of this and that tacked on for good measure. And 100% compliance is expected. Anything less makes one a "RINO".

I don´t like despotism flying any political flag. Some are taking the tea party philosphy that way. I´m not going along...

A friend ran for, and won, the leadership position in a regional republican party race. After he won, the " powers that be" asked him what he wanted - money or power.

He was nauseated. He´s no longer associated with the party.

What was roves answer when he was asked the same question?

I´m through with the GOP too. What a disappointing party! With a few notable exceptions who have the courage to speak out against the party line, the GOP is doomed - self doomed. They jut can´t see the wood for the trees. America can no longer tolerate these muddle heads repeatedly pushing mediocre candidates who engender at best a vote against the socialist.It is time for a new direction, as evidenced by the pure patriotic and constitutional philosophy of the TEA movement.The change of course is the only saving grace remaining for the USA.

The problem is that the Tea Party has 100% interest in nominating conservatives and 0% interest in winning elections. They need to support candidates ONLY on condition that they step aside if they shoot themselves in the foot and throw an otherwise winnable election.

Wanna nominate Mourdock? Fine. He voluntarily makes a stupid comment that jeopardizes a GOP victory, then the Tea Party must IMMEDIATELY abandon him and beg, if necessary, Lugar to replace Mourdock.

In other words, the "Buckley Rule": Nominate the most conservative candidate WHO CAN WIN. Stop nominating weak candidates, who any fool can see would lose, just because they´re conservatives. We need a GOP Senate majority leader; if we get one, there are more than enough conservative senators to control the debate. A minority of moderate Republicans, such as Collins and Snow will vote for the GOP Senate majority leader candidate and are only a problem when Dems control the Senate.

Sometimes I wonder about the motives of people like Shapiro. What do they really want--a fracture so deep and permanent that the Democrats are entrenched forever?

Yes, conservatives as well as Republicans have to purge themselves of flakes like O´Donnell, Angle, Mourdock, Akin, and Paul Broun, who are going to lose any race they enter. How does it advance the cause of conservatism to have Angle lose to Reid, O´Donnell lose to an admitted Marxist (Castle would have voted with Republicans at least 50% of the time) and Akin lose to Claire McAskill?

I´m not a fan of Rove, but the point that being right on Constitutional/conservative issues is enough for us to back someone as a candidate has some weight.
.
Yes, I want strong conservative people in office, but we also need to weed out the nutjobs and do the oppo-research that will be done by others before they can torpedo our candidates.

Rove and most Republicans bite the hands that fed them the 2010 midterm shellacking in the Congress and at the State level.

The Dems have a coalition of all sorts of "special interest" groups, and constantly are trolling for voters like women concerned about their "women parts" or homosexuals, illegals, etc. etc. etc.

Republicans should ally with Tea Party activists because they never will win an election until they do so.

Rove is the main reason Romney lost...just go away Rove...let Cruz & a new crowd take over. Rove is the one who pushed the tea party away from Romney. I knew when the rnc did not include the tea party , Paul etc they would lose. Big mistake not including the tea party & Palin in the convention.

The media doesn´t publish all the dead of night kicked down doors and swat teams that followed the post Patriot Act terrorizing of America since the Bush/Rove regime.
The Republican Party is a different faction of the one party progressive neo feudal destruction of the middle class. Look at the pedigree of the Bushes. Look at Prescott Bush playing both sides of WWII. Ron Paul was our Thomas Jefferson. It is over.

"Extemism in defense of liberty is no vice..."
Rove is no conservative, he´s an opportunist. He thinks he is superior to the Republican voters and conspires against them every time they choose a candidate he doesn´t like. Look no further than the 2010 and 2012 elections for examples. I want candidates that will stand up and loudly proclaim that they are for the Constitution and who will point out the many ways the government in Washington is violating it. If that is a radical position, so be it!

#36

and the Bushes and Rove are responsible for destroying the Republican party and its reputation, and the resulting pitiful republican party that could not beat a lite weight like 0bama.

nothing will change until people decide that they will quit holding their noses and vote for a Bush, Dole, McCain, Romney etc. This is what happened in 2012.

They did not even invite Palin to the convention. They (establishment and BUshes) hate her like they hated Reagan.

If the elite of American Crossroads are foolish enough to trust Rove with their millions again they deserve to lose it all again. Rove was way off the mark in his WSJ articles during last year. Talk about con men he has to be one of the biggest. I guess he has overcome his shame as he is slowly making appearances on Fox News. I saw him Friday on Greta´s show. He looked like he had just eaten a big piece of humble pie.
Trust anything Rove says as much as anything you hear from Dick Morris or Obama.

All he cares about is getting new clients. He´s always been a RINO, happy to link to the Tea Party when it serves his clients, but abandons them otherwise. He is a dismal failure and I don´t know why anyone would give him a dime to run their campaign. We need another network besides FOX for real conservatism.

Rove and the followers of the Rove clan are in for a big surprise and the T.E.A. movement is anything but dead. Just yesterday the launching of TeaParyCommunity.com and has over 93K members. It will counteract actions of the RINOs and others when they are detrimental to the recovery of the country. This movement was not set up to control the T.E.A. movement but to give all a voice without the restrictions by liberals when voicing a conservative comment. There are "hubs" for each state----basically to keep everybody informed and give all a chance to be active. It is NOT intended to fracture or splinter ANY T.E.A groups but to allow the many different groups to join forces when actively vetting and backing candidates.
Already they have been hacked by left wing idiots but the founders of the site said they will not let anyone or thing stand in it´s way to seeing the site grow. It´s free to join. They moderate 24/7 to remove offensive postings.
This will definitely be an answer to Karl Rove´s so called intention of ´HIS type of Conservative´ (the go along to get along, rich elites) to be elected and maintain the status quo.

Rove´s Crossroads GPS spent 71 million on ads for Tea Party and conservative candidates in 2010.
The ads they ran in 2012 were some of the hardest hitting against Democrats and Obama .
Rove wants to win back the Senate and hold the House in 2014 .
The Tea Party candidates have cost us the Senate.
O´Donnell , Angle ( Rove ran ads for her ) Buck, Raese , Murdock and Akin for starters.
The Tea Party is too focused on retribution against Republicans instead of fielding competitive Senate candidates.

#5 (and others), the Establishment has some . . . ideas. But this idea that you are either 100% with the Establishment or you are a Despot is a loser (smacks of a purity test or a rigid template, in fact).

The Establishment has to recognize that good people can adhere to conservative principles (viz. Sen. Ted Cruz). Having to march lockstep with those who espouse a "Dem-lite" philosophy is tyranny, not liberty.

#61, you said what I think. Send money directly to the conservative candidates and work your guts out at the local level. Leaders will rise from local politics. Lets not give up!

Repeating Reince Priebus as head of the RNC for another term disgusts me.
He was ineffective in the last election, refused to give any funds to Michele Bachmann´s re-election campaign.
Everyone knew who headed the DNC (Debbie Washerwoman Shultz) but who knew who Priebus was?
We could have had Allen West !

Tokyo Rove, upon opening the closet door and turning on the light, has ´´publically´´ declared (finally) war on true conservatives thereby joining the GOP the DNC and the POTUS in what has been going on for the last 5 years.

Rove and his ilk are the reason the republicans are such a disappointment and the reason I no longer feel obligated to vote for them. They have no principles, no values and no beliefs beyond "winning". Their votes are for sale or rent and they will lose no sleep over it. When they do get some power, they wont use it against the communists.
The difference between them and the ones in charge now is just a matter of degree.
So, yeah. To blazes with them. I can vote for the guy who is going to mug me with a knife, or stay home and get it from the guy with the gun. No difference.
I am very open to the idea of a 3rd party. The GOP is completely full of rot (like Rove) and beyond redemption.

I don´t have time to read every comment but 12, 20 and 25 have some good points. The original vision of the TEA parties (yes, plural) was to support and uphold the Constitution, advocate smaller government and fiscal responsibility. But a lot of factions started pushing other irrelevant and polarizing issues (mainly social issues) and, yes, demanding strict adherence to all their views. Now, I still think the majority of conservatives who believe in the TEA parties´ principles only want what the group originally stood for. I also do agree that there are "establishment" types who do not want smaller government and are just looking to augment their own wealth and power. It isn´t a black and white issue. We need to know which establishment country club types are just Dems in disguise and which representatives are true public servants. We can bring cohesion back to our party if we can get rid of the fringe on both sides. It should not be establishment vs. conservative. It should be that we all have the same basic principles and if you support smaller government and the Constitution as it was written, then we can work together.

Typical Republican Establishment fan club responses. Follow this logic.

Rove´s cabal of big money donors are banning together to work against grass roots candidates that they fear will not toe the Republican Party´s. This to me is screaming they do not want Tea Party candidates to get nominations, and are going to actively work against them. Thus they do not want Tea Party factions as part of the party.

Bring in the GOP/RNC fan club. They condemn anyone who decides to not follow the Republican Party´s inevitable spiral down the toilet bowl as traitors to the country. The reason why democrats will win.

Its like little children only seeing what they want, whine until they get it, then cry its not enough when they do.

This is why I no longer debate them. Logic is a foreign language to them. Its pointless.

Rove is so last decade. He and Romney got pwned by the opposition in 2012. He has to declare war on the Tea Party to make himself relevant, since he appears incapable of beating the democrats any longer. Who´s Karl Rove???

TEA- taxed enough already . Plain and simple so the RNC stopped getting my money long ago. Gave to candidates directly. McCain didn´t get a penny till he chose Sarah. Gave to Scott Brown first time but ignored him second run. Instead sent money to Cain, Cruz and others. Some won, some lost but my time and money were sent to TEA types. Oh and I proudly say Mitt Romney got money from me over and over again but NOT through RNC. The RNC can pound sand and howl at the moon. Have told them so on numerous occasions ver politely. Karl Rove and Dem Lites are power mongers while Reid and Pelosi types are Evil power mongers. JMHO, but I took my marbles and went Galt.

#´s 5 12 20 and 25 along with all the other reasonable voices do give hope for the party.
The tea party began with an ideal but the advice to deepen the roots to tap level instead of bragging the grass roots focus was not heeded and the victory of 2010 has not been sustained.
In part some of the organization has been hijacked by the our way or the highway extreme non cooperation and refusals to work as one unit.
This site reflects the old summation of the good the bad and the ugly. The posts have become so vicious at times it´s exhausting.
How glibly the core who adored W. reacted to the dem lies about his stand on immigration and their vicious reactions have carried over to anyone who is deemed not conservative enough.
No wonder Sarah has withdrawn

Reagan never trusted the Bush wing of the party, neither should we.

Expect more personal attacks on those who would question the Bushes, Rove or any other establishment hacks who are responsible for undoing the Reagan revolution and made Clinton and Obama possible.

Hold on... This is not about trashing Tea Partiers per se; This group is in response to what Obama´s new miscreant election 501c is doing;

They are targeting hi potential GOP local stars... digging up dirt & forcing them to drop out before they even run.... 2 in the last week alone.

This group is formed to combat that. But the Tea Party is the punching bag caught in the middle.

Although I do believe the progressive GOPers are working with Obama, to kill off the Tea Party. They are trying to preserve the facade of a 2 party system.

I wish The Heritage Foundation would lead a new 3rd party. The brand GOP is way too damaged to save.

The real problem is these professional politicians are not serving the people, they are serving themselves, including the likes of Karl Rove.

The people are The Tea Party. The Tea Party put Cruz where he is. The Tea Party is blow-back.

The RP calls and every time they do I tell them "I´m giving all my money to the NRA and what ever´s left over to The Tea Party."

To hell with Karl Rove and Bow-Boy, two birds of a feather.

Andrew Breitbart Remembered at CPAC

National Harbor, Maryland -- On Thursday, conservatives were offered a rare treat while attending the CPAC conference at the Gaylord Resort, settled above the Potomac River in National Harbor, Maryland. Mark Levin, a New York Times bestselling author, firebrand conservative radio talk show host, and extraordinary legal scholar, was honored with the inaugural Citizens United Andrew Breitbart Defender of the First Amendment Award. The afternoon event combined a tribute to Levin with a thoughtful remembrance of the late Andrew Breitbart, who died two years ago this month.

Out of the Republican retreat on Maryland’s Eastern shore comes word that the House leadership is raising the white flag of surrender on immigration. The GOP will agree to halt the deportation of 12 million illegal aliens and sign on to a blanket amnesty. It only asks that the 12 million not be put on a path to citizenship. Sorry, but losers do not dictate terms. Rich Trumka of the AFL-CIO says amnesty is no longer enough. Illegal aliens must be put on a path to citizenship and given green cards to work – and join unions.

On Sunday, Chris Wallace, the host of Fox News Sunday, said that Republicans in Washington were savaging Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) behind Cruz´s back before Cruz´s appearance on the program to discuss defunding Obamacare. In an appearance on Washington D.C.´s Fox 5 to preview his Sunday show, Wallace said, "I will tell you I have never in my time in Washington seen a party so upset with one of its own members." He said he had been flooded with opposition research on Cruz--from Republicans. Later on Fox News Sunday, Wallace said these "top Republicans" gave

Highly sensitive U.S. military equipment stored in Libya was stolen over the summer by groups likely aligned and working with terrorist organizations, State Department sources told Fox News -- in raids that contributed to the decision to pull Special Forces personnel from the country. The stolen equipment had been used by U.S. Special Forces stationed in the country. Lost in the raids in late July and early August were dozens of M4 rifles, night-vision technology and lasers used as aiming devices that are mounted on guns and can only be seen with night-vision equipment.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) exclusively told Breitbart News on Monday that he believes the plan from Russian to secure Syrian dictator Bashar Al-Assad’s chemical weapons—a plan Assad reportedly has agreed to—would be “a great step forward” if it actually happened. “I think it would be a great step forward if Assad were willing to do it and if Russia were willing to monitor it or an international authority with Russia,” Paul, an outspoken opponent of U.S. military strikes in Syria, said in a phone interview with Breitbart News on Monday. “I think part of diplomacy and getting things

In a surprise move, Russia promised Monday to push its ally Syria to place its chemical weapons under international control and then dismantle them quickly to avert U.S. strikes. (snip) "If the establishment of international control over chemical weapons in that country would allow avoiding strikes, we will immediately start working with Damascus," Lavrov said. "We are calling on the Syrian leadership to not only agree on placing chemical weapons storage sites under international control, but also on its subsequent destruction and fully joining the treaty on prohibition of chemical weapons," he said.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
