COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — The biggest donors in the Republican Party are financing a new group to recruit seasoned candidates and protect Senate incumbents from challenges by far-right conservatives and Tea Party enthusiasts who Republican leaders worry could complicate the party’s efforts to win control of the Senate. The group, the Conservative Victory Project, is intended to counter other organizations that have helped defeat establishment Republican candidates over the last two election cycles. It is the most robust attempt yet by Republicans to impose a new sense of discipline on the party, particularly in primary races.
Comments: Are these the same people who supported Arlen Specter over Pat Toomey and Charlie Crist over Marco Rubio? They´d be better spending their money smoking out Democrat secret operations to determine the Republican nominee, as they did with Todd Akin.
To those conservatives still holding onto hope that the republican party represents you and your values, have you seen and heard enough yet?
Ever since Nov. 6, 2012, they have been outright TELLING us that they are moving full steam ahead on becoming the DNC-light. They are taunting - no, DARING you to wake up and abandon this pile of broken promises and broken values.
There is absolutely no reason to cling to this bunch of lying skunks any longer. The writing, as they say, is plastered all over every wall.
These guys are getting more and more like the democrats. As with democrats, they are naming their organization just the opposite of what they really are: The Conservative Victory Project - really, it is anything but conservative.
Solution: form a new party to bypass their primaries. Like the NY Conservative Party, the new party can endorse genuine GOP conservatives, while running candidates against RINOs in the general. That is how we can keep our say.
The Republican Party is the "right" wing of the one national Progressive Party. That is why they label the TEA movement as "far-right" and see us only as an obstacle that "complicates" their efforts, which they cynically name the “Conservative Victory Project”. Therefore they denigrate us, mock us, and marginalize our arguments when they´re not just outright ignoring us. When we have the temerity to point out these instances, we are discounted as "single-issue purists" that are responsible for Obama´s reelection and the loss of "electable Republicans" in the Senate. Obviously the GOP doesn’t think much of their “base”. The Republicans treat conservatives the same as the Democrats treat blacks. The Plantation is Big Government and some of the masters pretend to be liberal (Democrat) and some pretend to be conservative (Republican). They are all masters and consider us their slaves.
Well, I’m happy to help the Republican Party any way I can. It appears that the best way would be to help them remove that “obstacle” in the way of their “Conservative Victory Project” by removing myself from their ranks. They have been very clear they do not want to represent my political principles, so why should I support theirs? I’m not leaving the Republican Party, I’m being kicked out.
Who is John Galt? What difference, at this point, does it make?
They can throw all of the money at this that they want too...they still need our votes. And this GOPer has had enough. I told the RNC not to ever call me again, and I´m planning to go down and drop my Republican affiliation.
Mark Levin is on the radio now pointing out the history of Rove, Law, McConnell and a few others who are part of this little cabal of establishment hucksters. The whole reason this is being done is because the Republican elite want to protect the racket they got going on in D.C.. They want to ensure they will have go-along-to-get-along lackies in position to keep the gravy train rolling. If they fail, they still get to spend tax payer money hand over fist, they just use the democrat party as cover. They only threat to this is if conservatives get elected and actually work to stop the spending and the growth of government.
There is no fixing the Republican Party from within. The only way to correct this is to abandon the sinking ship. I refuse to man my post when the captain and his mates are knowingly blowing huge gapping holes in the hull ordering me to remain there, shouting the orders from the only life raft.
These repub elite donors did sooo good with Dole McCain & Romney.... Rove Jeb McCain & the unknown elite donors can have the party. They all forget it was not Rove Jeb Boehner or the elites who won the 2010 election.... it was the tea party. Time for the party to change it´s name to conservatives & branch out. Rove & company isolated Romney by not including the tea party & Ron Paul under the umbrella....big mistake.. The repub elite are worse than the dems ..name one incident that the dem party would condemn another dem for...Colin Rove & Boehner should get a real job.
What a difference a week makes. Seven days ago, ABC turned over its Thanksgiving night programming slot to shock artist Lady Gaga, and the singer´s surreal pairing with the family-friendly Muppets flopped as a result. Last night, a three-hour, live remake of the wholesome classic The Sound of Music scored a huge audience for NBC, bringing it the kind of ratings success it rarely sees on a typical Thursday night. Fast National returns have The Sound of Music averaging a 4.6 rating among adults 18-49 and 18.47 million viewers. Easily the most-watched program of the night, it tied CBS´ The Big Bang Theory
We hear relatively often these days about the large and growing Muslim communities in major European cities. Less frequently a subject of media attention in the U.S., however, is an equally significant phenomenon: the asylum centers that dot the landscape in many countries. In Norway alone, with a total population of only five million, there are a hundred or so such establishments around the country, some of them in largish cities, some in rural hamlets. In these centers reside individuals of foreign origin, mostly from the Muslim world, who are awaiting decisions about their applications for asylum. The places aren’t
Federal airline security oversight has a long track record of failure. Few people know that prior to Sept. 11, 2001, four different federal agencies -- the FBI, CIA, FAA and INS -- were entrusted to protect commercial airlines. They clearly did not do their jobs. Why, then, has the federal government further nationalized the process? After the 2001 terrorist attacks, Congress rushed to create a new agency to protect America´s planes, trains and trucks. The Transportation Security Administration enabled the federal government to control the screening of passengers and baggage at all but five of the 429 U.S. commercial airports. Eleven
David Horowitz: I had this idea. Well, the first thing is that I didn’t want to duplicate what was already being well done on the right. But one of the things — there were a couple of things that I saw missing. One was addressing the culture that the Left had infiltrated and subverted. I picked three areas where the Left had made their major gains. One was public broadcasting, another was education, and the third was Hollywood. That’s how I began thinking — where does the Right need some force? Now, the second was I saw that conservatives are, as
The leftward tilt of American universities is a nightmare. But at least American college students have places to turn to – groups like the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, and websites like Minding the Campus – when things get blatantly unjust or just plain unbearable. But what can college students in a country like the Netherlands do when they want to push back against professorial PC? Meet Yernaz Ramautarsing. Born in the former Dutch colony of Surinam in 1987, he was raised in Amsterdam – and grew up into a political junkie and a solid left-winger. “I was terribly left-wing,”
This is not a return to Diana West’s book. However, Andy McCarthy, a man for whom I have very great respect and whom I like very much, has written a review of it in The New Criterion that, because of its revisionist presentation of a number of historical events, is among the most discouraging political documents I have read in many years. (Snip) First is Andy McCarthy’s view that the scandalous, cowardly refusal of the mainstream elite of American culture and politics to recognize that America’s Islamist enemies are enemies can be traced to Soviet infiltration of the U.S. government
Amy (not her real name) sat in my office and wiped her streaming tears on her sleeve, refusing the scratchy tissues I’d offered. (Snip) It became increasingly difficult to balance school, socializing, laundry, and a part-time job. She finally had to dump the part-time job, was still unable to do laundry, and often stayed up until 2 a.m. trying to complete homework because she didn’t know how to manage her time without her parents keeping track of her schedule. I suggested finding a job after graduation, even if it’s only temporary. She cried harder at this idea. “So, becoming an
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.
