Beware the Left-Wing-Funded
"Main Street" Republicans

Town Hall, by Michelle Malkin

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 1/10/2014 4:03:16 AM

What do George Soros, labor unions and money-grubbing former GOP Rep. Steven LaTourette all have in common? They´re control freaks. They´re power hounds. They´re united against tea party conservatives. And they all have operated under the umbrella of D.C. groups masquerading as "Main Street" Republicans. LaTourette heads up the so-called "Main Street Partnership," which claims to represent "thoughtful," "pragmatic," "common sense" and "centrist" Republican leadership. Reality check: The pro-bailout, pro-debt, pro-amnesty, anti-drilling group founded by former liberal New York GOP Congressman Amory Houghton includes three liberal Senate Republicans (John McCain, Mark Kirk and Susan Collins) and 52 center-left House Republicans. LaTourette

Comments:
The Republican Establishment is now using, or being used by, George Soros to try to defeat the Tea Party movement.

And your still a Republican because...?

Got Tea?

The way the GOP is going, the Dims could easily keep the Senate and take the House. Undermining the GOP base, where all the enthusiasm is (used to be), has to be the stupidest thing, ever.

“There´s nothing principled about their agenda. It´s not about ‘common sense.’ It´s about the Benjamins. These statists in populist clothing are running a Washington incumbency protection racket. Same as it ever was.”

The only thing “progressing” in this country now is the final and total corruption of our government and politics. The Cartel Party is thriving upon the remnants of a once great nation built by a free people. The evidence that our two-party system has devolved into a one-party power fest grows daily. It’s almost as voluminous as the proof that man-made gorebull warming is a hoax. It won’t be long now before the GOPer cheerleaders win the “Baghdad Bob Award for Obtuse Loyalty” or just admit they love ginormous government too.

I like my tea strong and steaming hot.

This is what happens when people calling themselves republicans demand others hold their nose and vote for candidates that are, when the total sum is taken, actually liberal democrats. We have ONE party in this country right now. And, as far as I´m concerned, it does not represent ANYTHING I would be willing to vote for. And I believe there are a growing number of voters who feel the same way. It is no longer holding your nose and voting for someone. We are now being asked to vote for liberal, nutty democrats appearing under the republican banner.

K Street and Tea Party in
Nebraska proxy war
Washington Examiner, by Timothy P. Carney    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 1/21/2014 9:33:09 PM     Post Reply
The GOP Senate primary in Nebraska will be a 2014 battlefield in the hot war between the Republican establishment and the Tea Party insurgents. But at first glance, it´s hard to see a casus belli. State Treasurer Shane Osborn is a conservative Republican who rails against Washington insiders and criticizes the Republican leadership for the recent budget deal, but whose pedigree shows strong ties to the Republican establishment. Former Bush administration official Ben Sasse is also a conservative Republican who rails against Washington insiders and criticizes the Republican leadership for the recent budget deal, but whose pedigree shows strong ties to the

America’s Bipartisan Political Class
American Spectator, by Doug Bandow    Original Article

America is a class-based society. But based on politics, not economics. An elite political class runs the state to their benefit. The rest of us pay the bill. The differences between the assumptions and values of people within and without Washington’s 68 square miles of fantasy long have been on ostentatious public display. For example, for years Congress routinely exempted itself from rules imposed on everyone else. The Republican-controlled Congress in 1994 theoretically stopped that. However, legislative privilege never really ended. The Democrats’ health care “reform” became the latest example of elite privilege. Never mind the endless rules exemptions and multiple deadline

Who hasn’t had some liberal sneer at him, “Why don’t you conservatives go read a book?” This powerful critique of the intellectual deficiencies of my ideological brethren always cuts me to the bone. I’m usually so upset that I run weeping to my fine German touring sedan, completely forgetting to tip the nose-studded holder of a degree in Gender Neutral Puppetry who pointed out my educational failings while he fetched my latte. This meme is nonsense. In fact, conservative tastes in books can be quite eclectic. One day last week, Amazon delivered Hugh Hewitt’s new book on happiness concurrently with bassist

Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow said during his speech at the South Carolina Tea Party Convention that Andrew Breitbart and the team at Breitbart News have started a “revolution.” “What we’ve started, and what Andrew wanted to start, was a revolution,” Marlow said during his remarks. “The revolution is fighting against corruption and fighting for truth.” Marlow walked through how he, Andrew, and Breitbart News CEO Larry Solov started Breitbart News in Andrew’s basement and why the fledgling operation gained national prominence. “The keys to success were, first of all, [Andrew] would go out and admit his biases, whereas we

Joe Dugan, the executive producer of the South Carolina Tea Party Convention, told Breitbart News minutes before the convention was to officially begin that his goal with this program is to shape the narrative for the Tea Party movement moving forward in its battle against the political establishment in Washington, D.C. “We are disgusted with Republican leadership,” Dugan said outside the convention center at the Springmaid Beach Resort in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Dugan added that the policies of President Barack Obama’s administration, particularly the push for amnesty and the political targeting of Tea Party groups by the IRS,

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) called on grassroots conservatives and Tea Partiers across the country to organize and fight back against the GOP establishment’s efforts to stamp out the movement during his speech to the South Carolina Tea Party Convention here on Sunday morning. Gohmert argued that conservatives need a ground game and an organized strategy to stop House Speaker John Boehner, Karl Rove, and the Chamber of Commerce from destroying the Tea Party movement. He rendered a lengthy quote from the infamous scene in the classic movie Animal House, where Bluto riles up the fraternity to fight back against the

It is clear that the House GOP leadership is preparing to take action on the immigration issue this year. According to reports, the “principles” of immigration reform will be introduced next week and it will include a “pathway” to citizenship for the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country. The bill will reportedly also mandate improved border security, provide additional visas for foreign workers and require those immigrants seeking legalization to learn English and pay certain fees. The net effect of this legislation will be to provide “amnesty” for millions of immigrants who ignored our laws to settle in this

This story begins with the first bailout the Tea Party ever stopped. In May 2010, I helped the Illinois Tea Party organize a demonstration on LaSalle Street in downtown Chicago outside the offices of Shorebank, which was about to be bailed out by the federal government and Wall Street´s biggest banks. The bank was meant to have been closed down already by the FDIC, given its staggering spiral of bad debts, but the day of reckoning had been delayed while its friends in the White House and on Capitol Hill tried to find a way to save it. Those friends included Rep.

GOP Frets About Year-End Fundraising
Thanks to Shutdown
Roll Call, by Emily Cahn    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 1/18/2014 10:21:18 AM     Post Reply
A financially damaging mix of a government shutdown and the holiday shopping season has prompted top Republican operatives to temper expectations for fourth-quarter fundraising reports, which are due at the end of the month. The final three months of the year are always a notoriously difficult time for members to raise money, as donor interest and candidate call time decline during the holidays. But the 16-day government shutdown in October further poisoned the financial well, especially for House Republicans, who polls show took most of the blame for the standoff. As year-end fundraising reports trickle in over the next few weeks, GOP

Saying that life is hard is kind of like saying the sun is hot, water is wet, or noting that politicians lie a lot. It´s so obvious that anyone who´s paying attention already knows that it´s true. That being said, life´s even harder when you´re working under false assumptions that have been drilled into you by your teachers, college professors, Hollywood, and politicians in D.C. Much of what liberalism drums into the young skulls full of mush simply isn´t true and millions of lives have been ruined by people finding it out the hard way. The good news is that

It’s been a pretty slow day, friends, and I’m a fan of a good truth-spittin’ Neil Cavuto monologue as much as the next gal — so here’s a bit of sanity after a week chock-full of the trumped-up demagoguery of extending unemployment benefits, income inequality, and the minimum wage, and before a year that’s sure to be all about the same as Democrats seek to avoid the disaster that is their leader’s crowning legislative achievement. Five years and one piddling “recovery” later, and progressives are fully convinced that the only thing that went wrong with their big-government, more spending, more

Rom-denfreude (noun) — The pleasure Mitt Romney loyalists are taking in the struggles of Chris Christie. The condition is prevalent, stemming from a range of perceived Christie slights towards Romney during the 2012 campaign, which several Romney loyalists ticked off quickly — and with still-evident bitterness.There was the New Jersey governor’s barring Romney from raising money in the Garden State, his unwillingness to answer vice presidential vetting questions and his highly autobiographical convention keynote speech. Most of all, though, Romney allies remain resentful of Christie’s embrace of President Barack Obama as the two worked together on Superstorm Sandy relief in the

In a wide-ranging interview with the New Yorker, President Obama characteristically saw fit to cast aspersions on those who disagree with him. Obama told David Remnick: There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who really just dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black President. (Snip)I dislike President Obama because of his petulance. What other President would tell the opposition party in his first meeting with them, “I won. I’m the president,”?

The NFL is reportedly considering abolishing the extra point after touchdowns as part of its scoring system. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told the NFL Network on Monday that the league´s Competition Committee is looking at proposals that would end extra point kicks after touchdowns in favor of a revised scoring system. "The extra point is almost automatic," Goodell told the network. "I believe we had five missed extra points this year out of 1,200 some odd (attempts). So it´s a very small fraction of the play, and you want to add excitement with every play." "There´s one proposal in particular that I´ve

The lawyer slated to represent a top Christie Christie aide sacked over the Bridgegate scandal is no longer representing her, MailOnline has learned, leading to speculation that she may be planning to turn on her former boss. The news came on an icy, snow-drifted Tuesday as Christie took his oath of office for a second term as New Jersey´s governor. Walter Timpone, a Christie-linked attorney whom Kelly retained after her public firing, received the subpoena served on her Friday by a New Jersey Assembly special investigative committee. But he is stepping aside because he has a conflict of interest.

In a radio interview last week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) made some disparaging comments about pro-life conservatives, stating they had “no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.” Those remarks drew the ire of conservative talk show host Sean Hannity, who on his Monday radio program declared he had enough and was abandoning his home state, where he hosts his widely syndicated radio show and his high-rated Fox News Channel television program.

While cameras weren´t allowed inside the soiree, according to CNN, President Obama got down on the dance floor and did the "Dougie," but even his moves couldn´t take away from all eyes being on Beyoncé! The singer looked stunning in a gorgeous gold Randi Rahm mini dress, with nude patent-leather heels and wrist full of Lorraine Schwartz bangles, and she knew it!

Former Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell and his wife Maureen were charged in federal court Tuesday with illegally accepting gifts, luxury vacations and large loans from a wealthy Richmond-area businessman who sought special treatment from state government. The two were charged in connection with their relationship with dietary supplement executive Jonnie R. Williams Sr. Authorities alleged McDonnell and his wife received gifts from Williams again and again, lodging near constant requests for money, clothes, trips, golf accessories and private plane rides. In exchange, they alleged the McDonnells worked in concert to lend the prestige of the governorship to Williams’s struggling company, a

Wendy Davis, the progressive movement’s Texas darling because of her pro-late term abortion filibuster, is withering under revelations that much of her narrative of struggle and financial hardship is misleading at best, fabricated at worst. The wagons are being circled around her with claims of a War on Women and sexism … all because the truth has come out via an interview with her husband by the Dallas Morning News, and other investigation. (Snip)Here’s the key thing. The Wendy Davis campaign has been trying to keep Jeff Davis from speaking to the press for months.

The bare-bones Wendy Davis story — the one without embellishment — is sufficiently inspiring as a matrix for defying expectations. The daughter of a teenage mother and a teenage mother herself, Davis managed to beat the odds by getting a college education and Ivy League law degree, then launching a political career that’s brought her national adulation. But since Davis’ Democratic gubernatorial ambitions caught fire last year, “facts have been blurred” in the retelling of her life’s story, as reported Sunday by this newspaper’s senior political writer, Wayne Slater.

Time Magazine’s current cover depicts a tiny man hanging onto the heel of a shoe that’s emerging from a pant-suit wearing leg. “Can Anyone Stop Hillary?” reads the accompanying text. Maybe, if the cover also showed her tripping over the Senate Intelligence Committee’s just-released report on the attack that killed four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, while she was secretary of state. If New Jersey Governor Chris Christie must answer for four days of traffic jams on roads leading to the George Washington Bridge, surely Clinton has the same obligation to address a deadly assault that the bipartisan committee found “preventable.”

Are you dazed and confused by Barack Obama, the nominal Democrat, whose conduct as president since 2009 has seen him sink from nearly 70 percent to 40 percent or less in the national polling, from which he has seemed to learn nothing, but still marches on? Fear not, the doctor is in: Fred Siegel of the Manhattan Institute, whose latest book, The Revolt Against The Masses: How Liberalism Has Undermined the Middle Class, explains all you wanted to know about Obama, and much else. It explains why he never became the new Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy or Lyndon B.

Activists on the steps of Hill Auditorium Monday said that University of Michigan officials have seven days to meet seven demands addressing lack of diversity and inclusion at U-M or ‘physical actions’ will be taken on campus. Speaking Monday after a speech inside the auditorium by civil rights activist Harry Belafonte, representatives of the University of Michigan Black Student Union — the group that started the Being Black at University of Michigan (#BBUM) movement in the fall — issued a set of seven demands that they see as vital to improving life for minority students on campus.
