Tea Party Groups Attack Rove Machine
Big Government (Breitbart News), by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 2/10/2013 7:50:30 AM

With Karl Rove under heavy fire after his group, the Conservative Victory Project, took to the pages of the New York Times to attack the Tea Party, donors are beginning to turn on the Project. Politico reports Friday morning that the Project will “essentially preform oppo research and grade potential candidates on a variety of factors that might affect their ability to win a general election contest.” Some donors are overjoyed at the opportunity, including media honcho Stan Hubbard and Fred Malek of the American Action Network. But others don’t trust Rove and the American Crossroads

The number of the day:
94.3% = The amount of money Karl Rove and American Crossroads wasted on losing candidates. Most of which are they very same candidates they now propose to be looking for in the next election cycle.

Got Tea?

"others don´t trust Rove" - how about I don´t trust ANY of them on EITHER side of the aisle!! They are out for themselves and their futures knowing they can steal from the taxpayer to fund their lifestyle, their power hunt and their futures. I say get them ALL out of office and start with a clean slate.

Sigh. I read this morning that the Tea Party Patriots said it was unfair for Karl Rove´s group to "fund candidates using money".

Anyone see a flaw in that comment?

Looks like Karl needs to get online and fill out his Social Security App. The Conservatives who remember Reagan Landslides are getting tired of hanging chad elections and close losses to radical leftist. Whatever Karl and the political "know it all´s" in the party are selling it ain´t working. Maybe a little unapologetic Conservationism should be tried.

Well, #3, perhaps it would be okay if he funded them using banana peels. Or acorns. Or peach pits. Anything but money. Good heavens.

Oddly, Karl Rove is the one thing that I agree with my very liberal friends about.

First it´s a movement, then it´s a business. Rove is one of many making the tea party into a business...some of the others are squawking the loudest. It´s time for another tea party visit to Washington.

I think I´ll market a new fitness product and call it the " Rove Machine". It costs a lot of money, guarantees that you´ll be in the best shape possible and you never notice that it´s still stuck in the corner of the room.
It will however be useful for drying sweaters.And you´re going to need sweaters.

First point: Karl Rove doesn´t pick winners either. Rove didn´t just think Mitt Romney would win; he thought he did win, and was the second-to-last guy to figure it out on election night. Romney sitting in a hotel room with his acceptance speech watching all the warning signs he´d ignored for weeks becoming reality is sad. Rove actively arguing against reality on live TV is scary. Second point: Where do you think all that opposition research that Rove is funding to pre-qualify our candidates is going to end up? Perhaps the most distasteful aspect of Mitt Romney´s GOP primary campaign was the relentless and dishonest use of opposition research to attack fellow Republicans via the liberal press. Victory by Oppo Drop is an ugly way to win that divides the party and does nothing to prepare the winner to articulate and defend conservative ideas in the general. Karl Rove may not care about that, but I do, and I do not trust his judgement.

A lot of cliches come to mind, like, "Don´t air your dirty laundry." I, for one, am sick andtred of hearing the complaints, small and large, groused about so loudly... seems like a lot of big egos

Then there´s the maxim: "A house divided against itself can not stand." You will note that there is no dissension among the Dem/lefties. They have done a very good Leninist-type job of crushing intra-Party dissent with an "iron fist," eradicating "factionalism."

Unless the Opposition entities --conservatives, TEA Partiers, Repubs et al-- find a way to unite on core principles, instead of flailing about like a herd of cats, the Opposition will flounder and fail.

And with every election, we are further down the precipitous path to the destruction of our Constitutional Republic.

This problem is very serious. Time is running out, 2014 is already here. Remember Franklin´s (pre-)Revolutionary flag with the severed snake: "Unite, or die!"

Let´s be honest, the tea party was cutting into Rove´s money making scam of being a campaign guru. If the tea party paid Rove to choreograph tea party campaigns (and bask in his wisdom) Carl would very quickly change his tune. It´s all about money, most specificaly, Carl´s money.

Speaker John Boehner´s primary challenger is going there. In a provocative new video from GOP candidate J.D. Winteregg, an announcer asks if Boehner suffer from "electile dysfunction"? "Sometimes, when a politician has been in D.C. too long, it goes to his head," the announcer says as clips flash on-screen of John Boehner laughing with President Obama, John Boehner on the golf course with Obama, and John Boehner smiling while giving Obama a glowing "thumbs up" at the State of the Union address. The ad - titled "When the Moment is Right" - is a spoof of Cialis commercials which air during 60 Minutes

Paul and Bush Duke It Out
on Immigration
American Spectator, by Natalie deMacedo    Original Article

Presidential hopefuls Rand Paul and Jeb Bush got in a slight scuffle over immigration yesterday. Bush called illegal immigration “an act of love” committed by people wanting to support their families, adding that most of them are here illegally because they can’t get in legally. This ignited some Republican rage and Rand Paul got his chance to respond: “You know, I think he might have been more artful, maybe, in the way he presented this,” said Paul, a Kentucky Republican, said on ABC’s This Week. “But I don’t want to say, ‘oh, he’s terrible for saying this.’ If it were




Study finds more immigrants equals more

Republicans are famously divided on immigration reform, but Democrats pretty much unanimously support it. There´s a reason for that. In stark, partisan political terms, continuing the high level of immigration of recent decades, and certainly increasing immigration as envisioned by many reformers, will result in more Democrats winning more elections in coming years

GOP Needs to Pledge to Clean
Up Washington´s Sleazy Culture

There is a culture of sleaze in Washington that´s worse than ever. Too-big, all-powerful government not only cripples the freedoms of the regular people who have to live under it, it also creates a whole shadow infrastructure dedicated to working it to the advantage of the elite and the connected. Three recent stories illustrate the point: Matt Continetti´s piece about the divorce of lobbyists Tony and Heather Podesta shows how connected insiders can make out like bandits in Obama´s Washington. The Podestas have offered their vast and wealthy clients little in the way of objective value. Rather, they´ve gotten rich just

By now most people are familiar with the potentially deadly situation emerging at the Bundy ranch in Nevada. Right now, the back-story is not nearly as important as the immediate necessity to de-escalate this life-and liberty threatening situation, although it does play an important role and must be addressed. The fact that this situation could have been pulled from the script of the 1974 movie Chinatown or any of the Godfather movies is well known and must be exposed, but not before immediate action is taken to assure the preservation of life and liberty. The current critical nature of the crisis cannot

Two of Nevada’s top elected leaders are riding to the rescue of a rancher whose decades-long range war with the federal government has reached a boiling point in recent days. The federal Bureau of Land Management has surrounded the Clark County ranch of Cliven Bundy with armed officers, helicopters and four-wheel drive vehicles. Last week, they began seizing cattle found grazing on adjacent federal lands in violation of a law meant to protect an endangered desert tortoise. “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans.”

Bundy Ranch, the Federal Government,

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
