Report: Chamber to hit
Tea Party with $50M

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Cameron Joseph

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/27/2013 11:30:44 AM

The Chamber of Commerce is planning to spend at least $50 million on a campaign to boost establishment Republicans in primaries against Tea Party challengers, according to The Wall Street Journal. The group´s broader aim is to help the GOP win Senate control and block Tea Party Republican candidates who might lose otherwise winnable seats to Democrats. "Our No. 1 focus is to make sure, when it comes to the Senate, that we have no loser candidates," Chamber political strategist Scott Reed tells the Journal. "That will be our mantra: No fools on our ticket." The organization has been gearing up for a

Comments:
It appears the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is not a friend of the Tea Partiers. s/o Reed was the campaign manager for Bob Dole. Oh sigh. The link below gives his bio. Tom Donahue was recently on with Neil Cavuto and said he was "working closely" with 0bama on immigration. Un.be.lievable.

I wonder how they define "fool", perhaps someone who believes in a balanced budget? Who thinks the federal government has too much power? Who fervently resists socialized medicine, AKA Obamacare?

#1 It appears the C of C is not a friend of the American people either. Making sure Republicans win seats with GOP candidates does not insure a majority of members who have OUR best interests at heart. Tea Party candidates understand the desperate situation we are in and will vote for us, not the system and themselves.

Why should anyone be surprised by this? The powers that be, are solely fixated on maintaining the corporate elite and the political establishments. 2014 will be the year that will determine the future of America for the remainder of this century. The GOP is a total wreck with only a couple of exceptions (who are to date unwilling to distance themselves from that cancer). With the recent reports showing Republicans leading I feel like the cards are being stacked like they were last election.

I´ll say it again: the Establishment has the financial resources and embedded positions to control the GOP primary process. Recapturing the GOP via that process is therefore, IMO, unrealistic. Even if "successful" as in 1964 and 1980, the Establishment will simply capture the party back once the populist fervor has been satiated.

We have two practical options the change things, neither of which would be easy or without substantial risk and pain. Armed revolution, or a new political party. My vote is for the latter at this point.

Don`t expect the GOP to take the senate in 2014. They don`t want it. Holding both chambers of Congress going into the presidential cycle of 2016 will only spell trouble for republicans. They would be blamed for everything that is wrong with the nation.

It never gets discussed--- why is the T party limited to cooperating with a disinterested republican party? There is a significant portion of the population who share the dissatisfaction with the corporate republicanism of Romney and Bush and the Senate, but have genuine concerns over the turn this country has taken economically, racially and socially since Reagan. T party should consider running in Democratic primaries against far left liberals. A tea party---- populist conservatism--- with feet in both parties is more stable and more self reliant and influential without the institutionalized power of the establishment.
And notice the silence of Rove Loving, Palin/Cruz/DeMint hating apologists from this thread.

FTA: Hard-right, mistake-prone Senate candidates are widely perceived to have cost the GOP five Senate seats in recent years, in states including Missouri, Indiana and Delaware.

First, The Hill is as fashionably far left as most other publications in the Unreal City, so consider the source. "Hard-right" is leftist code talk requiring no activity in the cerebral cortex. At The Hill, thinking is laborious work to be avoided at all costs. Too much exertion. Feeling is everything.

Second, in the past few years the Republicans have nominated a few klunkers who lacked the self-discipline to avoid stepping into obvious traps, usually about social issues that should be more personal than political. What´s essential is strategic and economic. Having ironclad political control of all branches of government might enable some progress to be made on social issues, but I agree that avowed "family values" candidates (like Rick Santorum) are, like leftists, valuing feelings above thinking. Different party, same mistake.

Third, the US Chamber, moving away from small business and embracing large crony capitalist enterprises with more in common with Democrats than Republicans, has sold its soul, and should be abandoned.

Fourth, Libertarian Party spoilers, some cynically funded by the Left, are the reason Republicans narrowly lost several dozen important recent elections. Libertarians need to influence the GOP from the inside and rid themselves of quixotic visions of electoral potency which they will never have on their own.

Fifth, the Tea Party should stage a hostile takeover of the GOP and the US Chamber.

Alot of businesses use their government connections to leverage their business. Doubt they are much into small government.

Just remember how many businesses pushing immigration reform are the same businesses that have pushed outsourcing for the last 25 years. How much regard do they have for the American worker? They view the American worker is too expensive. They would support a lefty like Obama who they think they can buy off rather than a small government conservative.

THIS sort of thing is precisely why we need to move to a 3rd party, and as soon as possible. By whatever name you choose to employ, the sad fact is that the "insiders" have their hands super-glued to the levers of power within the Republican party, and little short of a nuclear blast will pry them out of there before they die off. We don´t have the option of waiting them out.
So the choices are down to this;
a) 3rd party and winning
b) "when in the course of human events" ending in "our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor". Know where I can get a tricorner hat?
that´s it.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

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'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov.

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans.

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network.

And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

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.
