Mitch McConnell Attacks
Conservative Group for
Endorsing Primary Opponent

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 10/20/2013 1:57:53 PM

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign spokeswoman Allison Moore attacked the Senate Conservatives Fund for endorsing McConnell’s primary challenger Matt Bevin on Friday. “Matt Bevin now has the dubious honor of standing with a self-serving D.C. fundraising group that made its name by recruiting and promoting unelectable candidates that ensured Barack Obama a majority in the Senate,” Moore said in a statement to the Washington Post. “They clearly care less about Kentuckians than they do about their reputation for supporting laughably bad candidates. Now they can add a New England bailout recipient who claims he went to MIT to their

What did McConnell expect to happen? Business as Usual is out of business.

Bevin was handpicked and financed by the Democratic Party of Kentucky.

So Susannah, you are saying there isn´t a dimes worth of difference between Bevin and McConnell? They both vote with/for Democrats.

Mitch is reaping what he has sown. Politics ain´t beanbag.

#3: That is why a new party is needed to vet candidates and protect its label and brand. Right now: "Tea Parties" (there are actually many of them) don´t do that - most still try to qualify under 501(c)4. Anyone can claim the label.

#8, back in February, the Democratic Party of Kentucky announced that it was actively looking for a Tea Party candidate to support and finance in a run against McConnell in the primary. The article was posted on this site, and we discussed it. Lo and hold--Mitch Bevin, a guy from New Hampshire who was educated in Maine and owns a factory in Connecticut. Bevin principal backer is Wendy Caswell, a registered Democrat who last year signed a pledge to support the principles of the Democratic Party. She´s also head of what calls itself the Louisville Tea Party, which suggests that Kentucky has some cognitive dissonance issues.

#4, McConnell voted with the Republicans 100% of the time last year, and has voted with the Republicans 90% of the time in his career. But if you think he should be replaced by someone who´s a Yankee Democratic Party plant, be my guest. Personally, I don´t think it´s a great idea.

#4, when did McConnell "vote with the Democrats"? I don´t know how McConnell will fare in the general election, but it´s hard for me to believe Kentucky Republicans would throw him out for Bevin, who apparently isn´t even a real Republican.

As devious as the Democrats are I cannot not even begin to imagine that they would announce in advance when they have a partner in place, who they will run against that person. ie Bevins against McConnell!

#12 Sorry it´s just too too coincidental and way to unlikely that the Tea Party would choose the same guy as an opponent that the Democrats wanted.

It´s the same as the number of Democrats saying the Republican party will suffer in 2014 unless they get Ted Cruz under control. Do you think they really care about how the Republicans survive in 2014 elections? Really?

Unfortunately, I think that somewhere in the recent past I may have read some of the the same type of information that #12 has written in her comment about Mitch Bevin. I am no fan of Mitch McConnell, but if this information is correct, it would be time for a second look at his opponent. Candidates should be credible, not just available, to challenge and receive support for their election run.

As the minority leader, by definition Mitch will vote with the Republicans. What matters is how many bills passed by the House even get voted on by the Senate. And of those, how many have been changed between the time the Senate votes on cloture and the bill is passed with a simple majority. The latest Continuing Resolution is a good example. The first one went through cloture but had the defunding Obamacare stricken. The other 2 didn´t get a vote. Then McConnell caved and gave a blank check to Obama, weakened Congress on spending limits, and pocketed a couple of billion in pork.

It does not matter if Bevin is a "red diaper baby". mitch mcdonnald sold out the conservative cause, thus needs to go. If bevin is a snake so what, mcdonnell was also, we are no worse off. When the RINO´s realize this is our thought process they might vote with their base.

What is McConnell´s Heritage Action rating? Uh, oh, Susannah, it´s 79%. Not good, not good at all.

The elections aren´t until November of 2014. Plenty of time to find a genuine Tea Party candidate. ObamaCare will collapse by that time, proving McConnell wrong and Cruz and the Tea Party correct.

This may be a good time to establish a Tea Party candidate in Kentucky under that label for the Senate race. Let both fake Republicans fight it out in the Primary, and tarnish themselves more than they already have. McConnell has already sold out, and Bevin will be labeled by then as a Democrat if true.

Sounds as if Kentucky politics is even more vicious than the norm.

And the norm is terrible.

I figure it is certain that Mitch is corrupt as a person and useless as a conservative. So as a first principle there is no sense supporting him ever again.

The Democrats will probably take the seat. That´s too bad but at least conservatives will know where they stand with a Democrat.

As for Bevin, who knows? At least he has the right enemies. That is a good start.

What #13 said. BTW, does the name Richard Lugar ring a bell? You know the REPUBLICAN Senator who was replaced by a demonrat because Lugar just wasn´t "conservative" enough? How many seats did the GOP LOSE in the last election that should have been WON except for the demands that GOP candidates pass the "purity" test? This includes re-electing the most anti-American "president" in the history of this country just to teach "non-conservatives" a lesson. Well, it worked....While he didn´t acquit himself well during the past couple of weeks, why on earth would anyone think the unknown quantity Matt Bevin would be an improvement? Good Grief!

Mark Levin and Glenn Beck have both interviewed Bevin. I heard him on Beck´s show last week, and he sounds like the real TEA party kind of person. We will continue vetting him carefully.
McConnell no longer stands for what we believe in and has to go, even if the TEA party runs Mickey Mouse. The message has to be sent to the establishment Repubs.

#12 got me to do some research. Matt (not Mitch) Bevin went to college in Virginia and moved to Louisville in 1999. He is a strong conservative and has given much to Kentucky and his community. He and his wife have 9 children, 4 of which were adopted from Ethiopia.
Tea Party Chair, Wendy Caswell, may be a registered Democrat, but that just shows that the Tea Party is a mixed group of thinking patriots!

Matt Bevin [this is his name] appears to be well credentialed policy wise to take the fight to that dried up stick of deadwood Mc Connell. Bevin espouses Taxed Enough Already principles of smaller less intrusive government and less taxation as opposed to political expediency. What´s not to like about that?

Feel certain the the wise people on this thread will enlighten me. If MM is such a lib hack, why would our Conservative guru be in his corner? Rush L. stated last week the fact Reid commented on MM help in getting this bill thru would be the final nail in MM´s coffin. He would find himself unelectable. WTP have these charlatans across the land. They all come out from under their rock. Not that I care so much what happens to MM, especially if a true solid conservative takes his chair.

If Bevin is a leftist he is the biggest liar around. I am pretty sure Beck did his homework before letting him on his program.

With that said, even if he turns out to be liberal lite, I will still vote for him over Harry Reid´s good friend. McConnell has shown the opposite of leadership. He has hid in the shadows and chosen the status quo over conservatism.

As you can see, #3/#12, a lot of people don´t care, if what you have found out about Bevin is really true. They just want a "true conservative." I say lots of luck with that. How many do you really know who stay that way once they are in DC for a few months or years? For all of them, it´s all about the next election and keeping their plush jobs. Cynical, but that´s how I feel.

Tonight, my senator, Marco Rubio said that he supports McConnel to retain his leadership position; after that he spoke eloquently to perfection. Why is it that this terrific young man who articulates so well his positions feels the necessity to endorse someone that has outlived his position. McConnell has no understanding of what, we the people want, which is loving and caring for those that are truly in need, lowering taxes so that employers can hire those who are on welfare and food stamps and revive the entreprenuerial spiral in America.

He says he never attended MIT that is a direct lie by Mitch´s campaign oppo research taken from his CV. He seems to be a level headed conservative.

Someday I´ll explain about Wendy Caswell, the founder of the L´ville Tea Party who IS a conservative Democrat.

This story is a PERFECT example of how far from reality Mitch Mconnel, and other Rhino´s have gone. That arrogant sh#@ sits there and scolds us for supporting what he calls, unelectable people, and that its our fault Obama is where he is.

HEY MITCH, you arrogant ?$%@#&#, whats the difference between supporting a Tea Party member for office, who may lose, as opposed to voting for people like you, and Boner, only to see you throw in the towel and side with Obama in the end, like you and Boner just did. I´ll vote for a thousand losers before I ever vote for another one of you guys.

Its time to throw these bums out folks, they´ve thrown us under the bus for the last time, and they´ve been there to long.

I hope you people in Kentucky don´t fall for the bribe dressed up as pork he got for making the secret deal with Hussein Obama. Mconnel just proved once and for all, he´s in the tank for Obama..............

Matt graduated from Washington & Lee in the ROTC program in 1989. W&L uses Robt E Lee´s code of conduct - a gentlemen will not lie, cheat or steal - school typically kicks out 3-4 people a year for violating the honor code. Served 4 years in 5th Mechanized Infantry Division Artillery Division mustered out at rank of Captain. Moved to Louisville in 1999, in 2008 joined family firm - Bevin Brothers - in operation since 1832.

In my opinion he is a man of honor and character, so would expect endorsement by SCF to boost his ability to perform a ´Ted Cruz´ type miracle with KY voters, unless there are facts to the contrary.

I do not know of rumors, but certainly wouldn´t put it past the rascal Mitch McConnell to play all sorts of dirty tricks to stay in power.

When I was traveling through KY in August the radio in Middlesboro was full of McConnell ads saying how he was so against Obamacare - then he voted against Ted Cruz and with the Democrats when it came to the Cloture vote in the Senate. McConnell´s been in DC too long.

Mitch McConnell handed Barack Obama a blank check to spend as much as he wants until the next budget "crisis." Whether he did this because he´s an idiot, a crook who was bribed by a dam in his state, or he´s simply just congenitally incapable of standing his ground, I do not know. What I do know is that the people defending McConnell and attacking Bevin told me Mitt Romney was a true conservative who was going to win the presidency walking away over Barack Obama. 

It is clear, in retrospect, that they don´t know what a conservative is, and they don´t know how to win elections. The people they support do not support conservative actions, and they do not win. Mitch McConnell, as has been amply demonstrated over the last four years, is a loser. He lost the political argument to Obama over legislation that 70 percent of the country hates, and now he´s trying not to lose his seat by dumping opposition research on his Republican primary opponent. We´ve seen these Republican losers before. They don´t know what to say, and they don´t know how to win. Enough defending McConnell; it´s time to de-fund him.

They gave Mitch his dam and frankly, my dears, I don´t give one.

I had the displeasure of watching clips of this mealey mouthed RINO putz´s interview on "DeFace The Nation" with that old buzzard Bob Schieffer. When the buzzard asked about the billion dollar pay off for the dam in his home state old turtle face tried to lie and obfuscate the truth of the matter. Bobby being the old Obama water carrier that he is pressed the cowardy McConnell on this point. He finally lied and said that the dam will not just benefit Kentucky but other states as well. This lying spinless RINO needs to be put out to pasture sooner rather than latter.

President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will be hosting a “Yoga Garden” this year for children and their parents who attend the traditional Easter Egg Roll festivities on Monday, April 21, 2014. The yoga mecca is part of this year’s Easter theme, “Hop into Healthy, Swing into Shape,” which is part of the first lady’s “Let’s Move!” program and will feature professional instructors. The event will also include a “Hop to it Stage” with a variety of dancing events, including “Baby Loves Disco, Hip Hop Public Health, KidTribe, and the Ohmies.” Several athletes will be present for the “Eggtivity

While the horror show involving Brendan Eich, Proposition 8, and Mozilla was reaching its ignominious crescendo, I was in Milan, Italy, speaking before an energized crowd of activists in the Lombardy region’s county hall. Unaware of the witch hunt carried out by McCarthy’s rainbow-brandishing gay great-grandsons in Silicon Valley, a middle-aged man came forward and cried out in Italian, “Is it just me, or is the gay lobby imposing a dictatorship on us with their so-called scientific experts?” The science to which he referred wasn’t JavaScript, but rather psychology and pediatrics. He was referring to homosexual activists’ constant invocation of

The husband of the staffer caught kissing Rep. Vance McAllister (R-LA) says that while the congressman ran as a religious man who cherished family values, he wasn´t actually religious. "I know his beliefs. When he ran one of his commercials, he said ´I need your prayers,´ and I asked, ´When did you get religious?´ He said, ´When I needed votes,´" Heath Peacock, 34, told CNN Tuesday. "He broke out the religious card and he´s about the most non-religious person I know." “He has wrecked my life,” Peacock added. “We’re headed for divorce.” “It was just a kiss, that was all

The smell of smoke wafted over New York City early Monday after a brush fire broke out in a state forest in central New Jersey, authorities say. The city’s Office of Emergency Management tweeted that people in Staten Island and Brooklyn might smell smoke from a forest fire burning along 30 acres of land in Wharton State Forest, a large preserve northwest of Atlantic City. The forest is about 90 miles south of midtown Manhattan. People who live on the Lower East Side and elsewhere in Manhattan also reported smelling the smoke.

The people at Mozilla may yet live to regret their decision in cooperating with the forcing out of Brendan Eich. Apparently the internet giant has been getting a lot of negative reaction to its jettisoning of Eich for his contribution in support of California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008. Whether or not this will actually end up hurting Mozilla, one wonders whether Mozilla even anticipated the possibility. The folks at Mozilla travel in a world in which PC thought dominates, and if you don’t believe me, take Nate Silver’s word for it (and after the 2012 election, I’m inclined to

The idiot hugging the subway pole. The gaggle of friends walking shoulder-to-shoulder down the street. The self-absorbed texter who continues pecking away at the top of the subway stairs. These, and many other offenders, are the rightful targets of the new book “NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette,” (HarperCollins), which should be handed out to newcomers at every point of entry. “If New York City were a game show,” says author and artist Nathan W.

Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Springfield, Illinois, has expressed support of a priest who refused Holy Communion to Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), who supports abortion. Following the priest’s withholding of the sacrament, Paprocki replied to a pro-life activist’s email about the issue. Matt Abbott at RenewAmerica published the bishop’s response: Dear Mr. [name redacted], Senator Durbin was informed several years ago by his pastor at Blessed Sacrament Parish here in Springfield that he was not permitted to receive Holy Communion per canon 915 of the Code of Canon Law. My predecessor upheld that decision and it remains in effect. It is

Google executive Jacquelline Fuller has resigned in protest from the board of international poverty ministry World Vision amid a growing call for her departure after the group’s decision to reinstate its policy excluding gay Christians from becoming missionaries. World Vision had announced last month that its American branch would begin hiring people in same-sex unions who dedicate their lives to God. Just two days later, the group reversed the decision under pressure from evangelical leaders. “The board acknowledged it made a mistake and chose to revert to our longstanding policy requiring sexual abstinence for all single employees and

In Silicon Valley, where personal quirks and even antisocial personalities are tolerated as long as you are building new products and making money, a socially conservative viewpoint may be one trait you have to keep to yourself. On Thursday, Brendan Eich, who has helped develop some of the web’s most important technologies, resigned under pressure as chief executive of Mozilla, the maker of the popular Firefox web browser, just two weeks after taking the job. (snip) While he was being portrayed as an opponent of gay people, Mr. Eich said he believed in inclusiveness within Mozilla and had never discriminated.

In what the Los Angeles Times is referring to as a meningitis outbreak in L.A.´s gay community, since January 1 there have been eight occurrences of invasive meningococcal disease in L.A. County. Four of those cases have been of gay men, and three of those four have died, officials reported Thursday. North Hollywood and West Hollywood were identified in the Times report as the areas where the sickened men socialized. Invasive meningococcal disease is a serious bacterial infection caused by the bacterium Neisseria meningitidis. The bacteria can invade the body and spread to the blood, brain, or spinal cord, causing

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

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

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

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

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

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics.

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama.

It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday. More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds. "It’s simply time," said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. "The urgency is now."
