GOP Establishment Invites Its Own
Extinction by Declaring War on Tea Party

RUSH: Eric Cantor is out saying the Republicans have to change. The Republican Party has to change. The Republican Party has to show that we want to help people. The Republican Party has to reach across the aisle. Karl Rove and his PAC. What is it, American Crossroads? Is that the name of his PAC? There was a New York Times story a couple of days ago that basically said they are gonna end up choosing Republican primary candidates so that they´re not "Tea Partied." The Republican establishment has had it with nominees like Sharron Angle,

Comments:
The Go Along to Get Along Gang in the Republican Party is trying hard to push out the Social Conservatives from the party. The 2012 Republican Primary was the most intense effort I have ever seen by them in their effort to purge Social Conservatism. They got their candidate of choice for the General Preisdential Election and LOST and then wondered why.

Rove has one thing in mind. That is to get Jeb Bush in the WH. That`s his end game.

Good luck with that, Karl.

bwaaahahahahaha

There is a large segment of the Republican party that only votes for them because of the social issues. If the Republican party becomes liberal, there will be no reason to vote for them, since many of these are low income or seniors dependent on social programs. If the social issues become moot, why would these voters not vote for the party that claims to preserve their social programs? Or become discouraged and not vote at all?

New York "Republicans" compromised plenty with Democrats over the past 30 years - and look at the result. The Republican Party is a virtual non-entity in the State of New York. Selling out Republican constituents for 30 pieces of silver whenever provided the opportunity has decimated the GOP in New York.

After the latest insult by nominally "Republican" Dean Skelos in agreeing to turn 80% of the gun owners in the state into felons at the swipe of Andrew Cuomo´s pen, the state GOP will have to be burned down to the ground in order to rebuild it.

If the national GOP follows the same path, it will suffer (and the nation will suffer) the same fate.

Bring it on, GAGAG

Grass roots support (both $$ and time) will dry up as true conservative candidates siphon off the resources.

No need to funnel it thru the RNC, we will give directly to those who we know will listen to us.

Having a third party made up of tea party types would be good for this country.

the democratic party is too liberal for traditional dems, and tradional dems (reagan democrats) wont go near the republican party after what the bushes, dole, mccain, romney etc did to the party (who can blame them)

a new party based upon integrity and truth would be able to pick up a lot of conservative dems.

the independents can vote for the repugs as they will not be as severely left as the democratic party is today

in a nutshell, the dimms have the most to lose by a third party

I don´t agree with the establishment people, but the truth is that social issues should NOT be part of the TEA parties in the first place. the TEA parties could win all the time if they would focus only on economics, fiscal responsibility, freedom , limited government and the Constitution. Forget the subjects that we have already lost for nearly 40 years. You can fight for them AFTER you win. The establishment needs to work with the TEA parties and the TEA parties need to put the social issues on hold. That is the ONLY way we will EVER get control again.

I find myself turning Rush off more and more.

notice that he did not say anthing about Rove directly?

Rush and Rove remind of the two old guys in trading place betting on Eddie Murphy. I dont think they care anymore. it is all about the money for these two.

cant remember Rush ever DOING anything other than talking.

I received an email today from the Senate Conservatives Fund on this war perpetrated by Rove and American Crossroads. They said they will band together with other conservative groups as much as possible for 2014 to elect conservative/Tea Party types and get rid of the dead wood incumbents. Then it hit me. McConnell is scared to death of having a Tea Party challenge in 2014. He has been kissing up to the Tea Parties in Kentucky (reportedly) because he has heard they will try to primary him. I think he was primaried in his last election six years ago. I am betting Rove has McConnell in mind when saying they will fight for the incumbent over the Tea Party candidate.
I agree with Rush, Rove is a fool for starting a war with Tea Party members. He threw 300 million away in 2012, the Tea Party can get it done for much less in 2014.

As long as we Americans vote for the same trash in government how can we possibly expect a different result? This includes voting for either party.

It´s been fun unregistering for all of these Republican email lists, and even more fun when I suggested to the gentleman on the phone that I wouldn´t be reactivating my Republican Party membership this year.

Irrelevancy is just around the corner.

Reagan won by talking about the issues.
The republican party needs to decide what it stands for and then get the message out.
Smaller government.
Lower taxes.
Strong military.
Close down the border.
Liberty.
Individual Freedom.

#14 - good possibility that email was from Ted Cruz who is on this committee as second in charge of the Senatorial Conservatives.

After the backlash to the NYT´s piece on Rove´s comments, the NYTs scrubbed Rove completely from the article and saying it was only the Atty. Law´s opinion and comments.

Got a call today:

"Hello, this is the Republican Party calling..."

"Well you can hold it right there. I´ll never give another dime to the Republican Party until Rove is gone. All my money is going to the NRA, I´m an endowment member and still shelling out, and the Tea Party. Now, until Rove is gone, along with the current Republican assault on the Tea Party, take me off your damn call list."

Rove and his ilk are only interested in power. The health and welfare of the nation comes in a distant, distant second, if at all. In this regard Rove is as clear and present a danger to the future of this country as Cass Sunstein.

Repeating an earlier post, Republican politics has nothing to do w/principled conservatism and never did. Sad the vincible ignorance of many posts. The GOP is a secular progressive and corporatist party and has been since 1870; which is why they repeatedly choose jackasses such as the Bush Buffoons, Dole, McCain, Romney etc.

The wimpy establishment Republicans also known as as the Democrat lite Party will never win any sort of social welfare bidding war with the liberal Democrats to secure the majority of future votes from ethnic and racial population groups.

The only way they could do that is become more liberal then the liberal Democrats, and if the wimpy Republicans did that, they would loose enough of their conservative base who would form a third political party, causing the wimpy Republicans to be a minority inconsequential political party if they even survived at all.

Monday night, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes used an essay on Slate about the Bundy Ranch standoff and race as a jumping off point to discuss how this story would be different if rancher Cliven Bundy’s armed supporters were black. “When is it that people take up arms against the federal or state government, point their arms at federal agents and face no consequence for it?” Hayes asked. “The answer is to that is hardly ever.” Hayes went on to imagine how Fox News react to the New Black Panthers if they decided to “greet law enforcement with long guns.” Or what if the

BUNKERVILLE, Nev. — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says “something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting his cattle graze on federal land. “It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.” Reid called militias staying at Bundy’s Bunkerville ranch “domestic violent terrorist-wannabes.” Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev.,

Attorney General Eric Holder criticized drug sentences doled out under “the old regime” in a video Monday announcing the Obama administration’s “Clemency Project 2014.” “In 2010, President Obama signed the Fair Sentencing Act reducing unfair disparities in sentences imposed on people for offenses involving different forms of cocaine. But there’s still too many people in federal prison who were sentenced under the old regime and who, as a result, will have to spend far more time in prison than they would if sentenced today for exactly the same crime. This is simply not right,” Holder says in the video. President Obama could

Several weeks ago the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia sponsored a debate–more a discussion–between me and Thaddeus Mason Pope about end of life care under the Affordable Care Act. He supports medical futility. I oppose it. We went from there. I began my presentation with the quote in the headline above–asserting that Palin’s term “death panels” may have put a spear through the heart of Obamacare. I then said: People are afraid of centralized bureaucrats dictating whether Craig’s [the moderator’s terminally ill babies) children can have medical care, whether my 96-year-old mother can have medical care, whether people with disabilities can have medical

Corruption: The senator who once guarded funding for a cowboy poetry festival in his home state now thinks those who stand in the way of his family´s increasing fortunes for defending their land are domestic terrorists. Cliven Bundy now finds himself being called a "domestic terrorist" for disputing the payment of grazing fees to a federal government he believes does not or at least should not own the 84% of Nevada that his cattle graze upon. "Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They´re nothing more than domestic terrorists," said Sen. Harry Reid last Thursday. "I repeat: What

After Breitbart Texas reported on the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) intent to seize 90,000 acres belonging to Texas landholders along the Texas/Oklahoma line, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott questioned the BLM’s authority to take such action. “I am about ready,” General Abbott told Breitbart Texas, “to go to go to the Red River and raise a ‘Come and Take It’ flag to tell the feds to stay out of Texas.” Gen. Abbott sent a strongly-worded letter to BLM Director Neil Kornze, asking for answers to a series of questions related to the potential land grab. “I am deeply concerned about the

Although this editorial was written more than 20 years ago, just replace "Clinton" with "Obama," and it all applies perfectly to ObamaCare, from the phony promises to the bogus financing scheme to the massive new bureaucracy. It was this editorial and as many as 100 more like it in IBD that helped spare the nation the tragedy that would have been HillaryCare. The 246-page first draft of President Clinton´s health care reform proposal tells us plenty about the type of people in the White House these days. The plan reads like a very slick con job, and that should cause every taxpaying

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
