Americans for Prosperity Set to Clash
Against Rove´s Super PAC

Big Government (Breitbart), by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 2/18/2013 11:33:27 AM

Americans for Prosperity, the conservative group that has fiercely supported free market principles and embraced the Tea Party movement, is considering getting involved in Republican primaries next year, which could pit the group against Karl Rove´s recently-created super PAC. Tim Phillips, president of Americans for Prosperity, said the group will consider threatening GOP lawmakers in primaries who increase spending or taxes. After Rove created his "Conservative Victory Project," many conservatives felt the group was meant to wage war against Tea Party candidates.

Time to take the party back.

Got Tea?

I am Sarah Ted Palin Cruz!

Well, I am not "Sarah Ted Palin Cruz", whatever that might have meant. However, I say welcome to any group whose intent is to field good candidates for us. What´s not to like?

Saying they are "considering" getting involved in republican primaries, isn´t very encouraging. What are they "considering"? Are they "considering" that, since Rove´s chosen candidates won´t be conservatives, but RINOs, they maybe able te extort some cash from Rove´s group to stay out of it?

Don´t trust any of the hucksters that are gong to come along, based on Rove´s (and the GOP´s) determination to move the party to the left. They are just as crooked, don´t give two squats about this country, (just money), and will waste our time in taking BACK the country.

Karl Rove and his fellow RINO statists aren´t the answer to the problem, They are the problem.

What #1 said. In the past, the demonrats were the targets being challenged by members of the GOP... now not so much... IMHO, there is nothing to celebrate about "groups" "clashing" against fellow Republicans who are ALL trying to get Republicans Elected, rather than dems. Good grief!

I would gladly trade McCain and Lindsey for two more like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and other conservatives.

#4. Your comment goes to the heart of the matter. The fight ain´t between R´s; it´s between those who are principled conservatives
first and insist the GOP stand for something; and those R hustlers like Rove whose laser like focus is on ´winning´ for no particular purpose. You´re smart enough to understand this.

How patronizing, #6.

I don´t have to guess who gets to decide which are the acceptable candidates. I believe I will decide for myself and my decision will not be based on which PAC sent money.

I would like to have some choice in candidates too, why should Rove and the party elites be the ones who continue to foist candidates on the rest of us?

Oscar Pistorius murder charge:
Reeva Steenkamp’s iPad ‘intrinsic
part’ of police investigation
Telegraph [UK], by Aislinn Laing

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/18/2013 11:25:36 AM

Police in South Africa are treating the iPad of slain model Reeva Steenkamp as “an intrinsic part” of their investigation amid reports that a late-night message from a rugby player might have sparked a row with boyfriend Oscar Pistorius that led to her death. The iPad was reportedly found on the bedroom floor of Mr Pistorius’ home after Miss Steenkamp was shot dead in the early hours of Thursday morning. Francois Hougaard, the South African national team rugby player at the centre of the rumours, who was friends with both Mr Pistorius, 26, and Miss Steenkamp,

Lets just muzzel this now!

Rome is burning and we are shooting ourselves in the foot. It appears to me the Party has been infiltrated by the left to cause havoc!

Clean up your act and move on! Beat the enemy that is in front of us..The President and the lame Democrats in both houses! Enough!

#7. Wasn´t patronizing Malia at all, just stating something that should be obvious. Sure, the choice of candidate is one´s own and always has been. That´s hardly the point. For far to long the voters have chosen between Tweedledum and Tweedledee and the result is self-evident; nothing changes. Surely you must have noticed by now?

Better for Americans for Prosperity to put their resources toward a new party. The GOP elites will wag their fingers with dire warnings of Democrat dominance - but they ignore that a new party without the "party of the rich" albatross would also draw from the Democrats. The two-party big-tent status quo simply no longer works. There´s a middle-class vacuum to be filled. The ideal multi-party system is where no party, including the Democrat party, commands an absolute majority. Then "compromise" must occur on a candidate-by-candidate and issue-by-issue basis, not once every four years. Electoral and legislative success would depend on coalitions of the various parties. The NY Conservative party (which endorses conservative GOP candidates and issues) is a template.

We nominated a presidential candidate whose PAC was run by a Rove protege and that PAC concentrated its efforts in late 2011 and the primary season on silencing good candidates and muting substantive discussions. Negative ops and planted stories-- a scorched earth policy which won a nomination and coordinated a loss of almost unbelievable proportion against a very defeatable candidate. Now it is claimed that all good candidates are welcome, but that somehow group think focusing on principles and ideologies is somehow patronizing and counterproductive, er, um, unless Karl Rove and his are deciding who the good candidates are, and which ones ought to be weeded out.

Apparently it all depends on whose ox is being gored.

Cliven Bundy marched into my life one Friday morning in January 1992 in a protest bound for a federal courthouse in Las Vegas. He held up one side of a street-width banner that asked, “Has the West been won or has the fight just begun?” To my great relief, just as Bundy promised, nearly 200 ranchers from all over the state marched behind him, yelling “Property rights!” Nearly a mile later, the marchers fell silent and filed into the courtroom where Wayne Hage of Pine Creek Ranch faced arraignment for the felony of cleaning brush out of his ditches without a

The Republican challenger to Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., thinks nobody should spend 47 years in Washington. Dr. Milton Wolf, a diagnostic radiologist from the Kansas City area, on Wednesday released a television ad criticizing Roberts for his nearly five decades in the nation´s capital. "After 47 years in Washington, Kansas is a distant memory for Pat Roberts," the ad opens, before pivoting to Wolf´s daily routine as a Kansas doctor. The ad goes on to mention Wolf´s plan to "repeal and replace Obamacare," "fight wasteful spending" and pass congressional term limits. After his tenure, Wolf´s ad promises, he´ll return home to Kansas.

I love that picture from the Bundy Ranch. You know the one that I’m talking about: I’m talking about all of them. I love the horn-handed Cowboys, with real, honest trail dirt on them; I love the American flags; I love the sagebrush; and I love the rebellion-- as in civil, non-violent disobedience. And the question now is, where does this go? Rebellion typically starts after a period of lassitude and hopelessness in the face of overwhelming power. Populations spend years, even decades muttering under their breath about abuses of power, but feel ineffectual to enact real reform. Then one bright day, a fruit stand

In the movie Ben-Hur, Charlton Heston was wrongly accused by government and sentenced to life in prison/slavery. Soldiers marched chained Heston along with other prisoners through the desert without food or water. Heston collapsed, unable to take another step. Jesus was passing by with a small caravan. He walked over and gave Heston a drink of water, which gave Heston the strength to continue. Note: Heston´s unfair ordeal was not over. He would endure much before his release and ultimate victory at the end of the movie. I view the Obama administration’s BLM retreat from bullying rancher Cliven Bundy and the patriots

The chairman of the Mississippi GOP, Joe Nosef, reacted angrily to Tea Party groups calling for his resignation this week, accusing one local activist of secretly working to elect Democrats and saying some “fanatical” Tea Party groups could jeopardize the GOP´s hold on a senate seat in one of the most Republican states in the nation, according to emails obtained by Breitbart News. In the emails, Joe Nosef, the chairman of the Mississippi Republican party, told Mississippi Tea Party president Janis Lane that “help[ing] Democrats win...appears to be your goal.” Nosef also emailed to a list of Republicans that the

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

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

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.

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

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

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

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
