Top Donors to Republicans
Seek More Say in
Senate Races

New York Times, by Jeff Zeleny

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 2/4/2013 1:18:23 PM

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.

Sounds like they want liberal dems, not real republicans.

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.

Oh, after the backlash to Rove they are saying it is just TOP Donors to Repubs.

Get your story straight, NYT.

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.

Got Tea?

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.

After what this bunch of RINO fools did in 2006, 2008, 2010 & 2012, the rnc can go to H-ll. Anyone that is a Conservative Republican gets a knife in the back and the rnc kisses up to democRATS.

My dinner with the

In case you’ve ever wondered, when you take a psychiatrist to dinner (especially a forensic psychiatrist, like me), he doesn’t leave the office 100 percent. No well-trained psychiatrist can. The “third ear” we develop during training – the one that catches meaningful turns of phrase or attempts to be evasive – can’t be left at the office door entirely. When I had dinner with Lou and Linda Pelletier and three of their four daughters, Jennifer, Jessica and Julia, a few nights ago in Massachusetts, I wasn’t trying to evaluate them. They aren’t my patients. But I was listening for discordant psychological

Does Traditional College Debate

It used to be that if you went to a college-level debate tournament, the students you’d see would be bookish future lawyers from elite universities, most of them white. In matching navy blazers, they’d recite academic arguments for and against various government policies. It was tame, predictable, and, frankly, boring. No more. These days, an increasingly diverse group of participants has transformed debate competitions, mounting challenges to traditional form and content by incorporating personal experience, performance, and radical politics. These “alternative-style” debaters have achieved success, too, taking top honors at national collegiate tournaments over the past few years. But this transformation has also

Jews cast doubt on origin of

Leaflets calling on Jews in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk to register themselves with pro-Russian separatists may not be the work of the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic, Jewish groups have said. According to the World Jewish Congress, 17,000 Jews live in the city. The leaflets were handed out by several Balaclava clad men carrying a Russian flag earlier this week as well as being found plastered to buildings near a synagogue. They ordered all Jews aged 16 and older to register with the separatists, pay a $50 fee and report all motor vehicles and real estate in their possession. The flyers also said

British Prime Minister David Cameron used his Easter message to talk about the significance of the holiday as he highlighted the role of Christianity in Britain and the plight of Christians in countries where they are persecuted. He said the country should reflect on what Christianity brings to Britain. “All over the UK, every day, there are countless acts of kindness carried out by those who believe in and follow Christ,” Cameron said. “The heart of Christianity is to ‘love thy neighbour’ and millions do really live that out.” He mentioned prison ministries, soup kitchens and homeless shelters run by churches.

As we head into a sacred weekend for many Americans, The Foundry would like to share these inspiring words with you. Have a wonderful celebration. Excerpts from President Ronald Reagan’s Radio Address to the Nation on the Observance of Easter and Passover, April 2, 1983 My fellow Americans: This week as American families draw together in worship, we join with millions upon millions of others around the world also celebrating the traditions of their faiths. During these days, at least, regardless of nationality, religion, or race, we are united by faith in God, and the barriers between us seem less

The debate over campaign contributions is never-ending for a simple reason: Both sides of the argument have merit. On the one hand, of course money is speech. For most citizens, contributing to politicians or causes is the most effective way to augment and amplify speech with which they agree. The most disdainful dismissers of this argument are editorialists and incumbent politicians who — surprise! — already enjoy access to vast audiences and don’t particularly like their monopoly being invaded by the unwashed masses or the self-made plutocrat. On the other hand, of course money is corrupting.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

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'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

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
