´Sleazy´ GOP Establishment
Targets Mark Levin

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 1/10/2014 2:42:30 AM

The communications director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) tried to smear conservative talk radio host Mark Levin Thursday by alleging that outside groups spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to make his book a best-seller, which they did not. Levin responded by saying he would hold Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and NRSC Chairman Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS) personally responsible for the "intimidation tactics." As Breitbart News has documented, there has been plenty of bad blood between the NRSC and McConnell and the Senate Conservatives Fund, which backs conservative candidates who do not want to get co-opted by

Comments:
I have come to the realization that the Republican Establishment is either banking on getting the Hispanic vote with amnesty this year or truly intends to merge with the democrat party to replace its Tea Party leaning base.

That or the Republic Establishment is really is Al Gore stupid.

Got Tea?

If the GOP really is intent on losing its voter base in 2014, opening the gates to even more, and more disturbing, Democrat-socialist victories, American politics will become a whole new ballgame.

The republican should re-group, they are receiving bad information from the NRSC & RNC. They´re reaching out to the wrong people & leaving the base behind. And you wonder why congress approval rating are in the single digits. I suggest they include some people who are out of DC cocktail party circuit in their little elite group.

Can there be any more evidence that the inter-party fighting was instigated and continues at the behest of the GOP establishment leadership? Yet, we who want to fight for our freedom and our constitution are called radical anti-government obstructionists.

Remember this the next time we hear a stormy call out of the great plains to "all work together". To them, just like with the socialist dims, they mean it is we who are to compromise and shut up while we still write that check and vote the "R" ticket. They mistakenly believed that because the socialist dims trained them in that behavior that they could do the same to us.

Surprise! Some of us will never surrender our American heritage. Confound them by no longer playing by their fixed insider rules.

Game on. We´ve crossed the Rubicon, and we shall see if traditional American constitutionalists still hold the majority of the population. Of course, that is dependent on overcoming the vote fraud margin as well. I´m not done fighting.

I´ve got lots of tea.

Heard a talk radio host (not Mark Levin) say, in effect, "Republicans want to win; they don´t want to govern." (Of course, Tea Partiers are excluded from this philosophy.) And, I do believe this to be true. If they can win office and never have to buck any establishment, Republicans are happy.

I also believe that don´t even mind being the minority party as long as they keep their own jobs. Either way, they want the perks without the responsibility.

Establishment republicans are pushing the same agenda as democrats. They think that will win? Really? I am with Mark Levin. I want a constitutional republic, not a democratic party oligarchy.

Will GOP lawmakers do anything
about the “Too Big To Fail”
bank subsidy? Probably not.
American Thinker, by Nick Sorrentino    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 3/2/2014 1:20:28 PM     Post Reply
Dave Camp in the House and David Vitter in the Senate are looking to address the implicit subsidy granted to banks designated as too big to fail. These banks are able to borrow at lower than true market rates because they are backed by the US taxpayer. Their smaller competitors who do not have this taxpayer financed guarantee must borrow at higher rates and so are at even more of a disadvantage versus the big guys. Over time this means that capital will increasingly move from small banks to large. (This is just one of the problems with Dodd-Frank.) This undermines

Two years ago today, we lost Andrew Breitbart. He was a father, husband, and a brother — a gregarious and hilarious personality. He was a new media pioneer. But perhaps he is best remembered as a fighter. He fought alongside us. He fought when we couldn´t. Justice. Accountability. Freedom. An even playing field. Those were the fights of his life. On March 1st we think of him, but every day at Breitbart News we honor him. Every day we strive to keep the fighting spirit of this unique individual alive on the pages of

In the wake of President Obama´s tepid response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine - the Obama Administration called it an "unplanned arrival" - Republicans pushed for a stronger response. Sen. Ted Cruz warned that Russian President Vladimir Putin would not take the cautious words of President Obama very seriously - and look into suspending Russia from the World Trade Organization and the United Nations Security Council: "As the President and his national security team are apparently the last to learn, Putin has scant regard for international norms when they run counter to his goal of re-establishing Soviet-style regional hegemony

Friedrich A. von Hayek was an Austrian and British economist and philosopher known for his defense of classical liberalism, prior to the term "liberal" being corrupted to its current meaning. Hayek maintained that free-market capitalism and the information that changing prices brought to individuals allowed those individuals to chart their course of action and make intelligent decisions. This free flow of price information yielded what he referred to as a "spontaneous order". Very similar to Adam Smith´s "´invisible hand" and Friedman´s "free to choose" concepts, Hayek held that intelligent decisions based on the free flow of information

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin couldn´t help but gloat Friday at reports that Russian troops had moved into Ukraine. After all, the media mocked her mercilessly when she criticized President Obama during the 2008 campaign, saying: "After the Russian army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama´s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia´s Putin to invade Ukraine next." "I´m usually not one to Told-Ya-So, but I did, despite my accurate prediction being derided as ´an extremely far-fetched scenario´ by the ´high-brow´ Foreign Policy magazine," Palin wrote

Remember last fall when Sen. Ted Cruz single-handedly forced the biggest, most powerful government in human history to grind to a halt? That´s the conventional wisdom of Washington Republicans, who also claim the GOP suffered a public relations catastrophe because Cruz demanded that their votes match their promises. No matter that President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid were at least equally intransigent about having their way. The government shutdown was solely and only the fault of the insurgent Texas Republican senator, according to the conventional wisdom. Wait till the debt ceiling Now, remember how those same Washington Republicans also said Cruz

Speaking at an event marking the five-year anniversary of the Tea Party movement in Washington, D.C. that helped elect him, Rep.

The thing I like about most sports are the rules and how the winner is determined are pretty unambiguous. Score more points, cross the finish line first, jump higher, whatever, and you win. Should there be any foul play or skirting of the rules, there’s an official or referee there to cry foul. It’s simple and, to borrow a word from President Obama, fair. Politics, on the other hand, is quite different. Truth used to be the most potent weapon in the game of politics. It was the best tool with which to garner the most votes, and whoever got the

The State Department´s international aid branch is bidding to prevent 54 million births and help 6 million people with HIV/AIDS in 80 countries annually via a smorgasbord of tools from medicines, the pill, IUDs, and condoms scented to smell like banana, vanilla and strawberry. In documents broadly outlining what USAID plans to buy and distribute overseas to help with birth control, HIV/AIDS, malaria and other issues, the taxpayer-funded agency revealed its population control and HIV/AIDS prevention agenda. Under President Obama’s “Global Health Initiative,” for example, the “goal is to prevent 54 million unintended pregnancies and

Recently, while working on a longer article responding to critics of my women in philosophy article, this author came to a greater appreciation for conservative anger over affirmative action. Those demanding that more women be hired in various academic fields do so with considerable sanctimony and callousness. They sanctimoniously condemn Lawrence Summers, ignoring that they are the ones demanding the jobs.{SNIP} But what goal does gender parity achieve?

While standing in the symbolic birthplace of the Texas energy industry, Spindletop Boomtown Museum, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) formally announced his “American Energy Renaissance Act” to help promote energy independence through increased oil and natural gas production with strong limits on federal government interference. Standing before a group of energy workers and executives, Sen. Cruz began his announcement by saying: “Welcome to Boomtown. This place reminds us of how American entrepreneurs ushered in a new era for America, and for the world. This discovery [oil in Texas] was made at a time when America needed energy to grow and expand.

First conservative icon Thomas Sowell turned on Ted Cruz, now it appears that Ann Coulter is souring on the Texas Republican as well. Sowell published two columns this week slamming Cruz for being self-serving. Coulter praised the first of Sowell’s columns in a tweet Wednesday. Later, in an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday night, Coulter doubled down on her praise of Sowell’s anti-Cruz column: ”I never push anyone else’s column but mine. Today everyone has got to read Thomas Sowell’s article.” During the “Hannity” segment, Coulter attacked tea party groups for being filled with “shysters” and “conmen,” naming specifically the Senate Conservatives

During a hearing of the House Oversight Committee into allegations that the Internal Revenue Service scrutinized conservative groups’ tax-exempt status filings unduly, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) exploded at Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (D-CA). Cummings charged that the way in which the proceedings were being conducted were “Un-American.” In apparent protest, Issa then walked out of the committee hearing. While making a statement before the committee, Issa stood up and asked Cummings to yield. “If you will sit down and allow me to ask a question,” Cummings insisted. “I am a member of a Congress of the United States of America.” “I am

More than one million U.S. schoolchildren stopped buying school lunches during the 2012-2013 academic year, after new nutrition standards championed by first lady Michelle Obama took effect. The Government Accountability Office, a watchdog agency inside the federal government, told members of Congress in a little-noticed January 28 report that participation in the school lunch program declined by 1,086,000 in that one year, the biggest drop on record.

We are embroiled in a global conflict, and the supposed “leader of the free world” is taking photo ops at a grade school, making statements about the invasion of Ukraine on a kids’ rug. Meanwhile, Putin incredibly denied that any Russian troops are in Ukraine, and somehow President Barack ‘I-call-the-Russian-invasion-an-uncontested-arrival’ Obama actually thought it was a good idea to set up a lectern on a grade school alphabet mat when the entire world is seeing the consequences of his weakness.

A plea for about a dozen people who know who they are: Will you see “12 Years a Slave” now? It just won the Oscar for Best Picture. It just came out on DVD. Please see it. I’ll even spring for the popcorn. You see, I keep encountering folks, mostly African-American, who have decided that they won’t -- or can’t -- see this movie. Some say they don’t want to be made angry. Others say they don’t want to be traumatized.

At Chipotle, guacamole costs extra - but it soon may not be available at all thanks to climate change. The Denver, Colorado-based chain of Mexican fast-food restaurants threatened to take the condiment off the menu because of the rising price of avocados. While the avocado crop is currently fine, scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are predicting drier temperatures will lead to a 40 per cent drop in California´s avocado crop over the next 32 years. Most modern scientists agree that there is a direct correlation between the increase of droughts and global warming, according to Think Progress.

Where Lois Lerner goes, drama follows. On Wednesday, the former IRS officer again invoked the Fifth before the House Oversight Committee. That precipitated a heated exchange between the committee’s Republican chairman, Darrell Issa, and Democratic ranking member Elijah Cummings, who called the hearings “un-American.” And that spat has become the story. No doubt that is exactly what Cummings had in mind. Because it distracts attention from the substance of the hearings — and from the questions raised by e-mails and public remarks Lois Lerner wrote, received or made when she was IRS Director of Tax Exempt Organizations.

WASHINGTON — Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers who are perhaps the best-known patrons of conservative Republican politics, are bespectacled and in their 70s. They look genial enough. But Democrats are embarking on a broad effort that aims to unmask the press-shy siblings and portray them, instead, as a pair of villains bent on wrecking progressive politics. On Thursday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is starting a digital campaign that will use Internet ads and videos, as well as social media, to tie Republican Senate candidates to the policies and actions of the Koch brothers.

As a U.S. senator, Barack Obama won $48 million in federal funding to help Ukraine destroy thousands of tons of guns and ammunition--weapons which are now unavailable to the Ukrainian army as it faces down Russian President Vladimir Putin during his invasion of Crimea. In August 2005, just seven months after his swearing-in, Obama traveled to Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine with then-Indiana Republican Senator Dick Lugar, touring a conventional weapons site. The two met in Kiev with President Victor Yushchenko, making the case that an existing Cooperative Threat Reduction Program covering the destruction of nuclear weapons should be expanded to
