Moderate Republicans team up
with labor unions to defeat
the tea party in 2014

Daily Caller, by Patrick Howley

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/7/2014 9:21:02 PM

A Republican super PAC committed to defeating the tea party in 2014 congressional primaries is mostly funded by labor unions. The super PAC Defending Main Street, formed by moderate Republican and former congressman Steve LaTourette, has committed itself to destroying tea party challenges to establishment GOP candidates in the 2014 midterm elections. “Hopefully we’ll go into eight to 10 races and beat the snot out of them,” LaTourette said. His PAC has already committed itself to defending Republican Idaho Rep. Mike Simpson from tea party opponent Bryan Smith, who is backed by the conservative Club for Growth due to Simpson’s support for

Comments:
This is beyond disturbing. Steve LaTourette is a traitor and should just join the Democrat party and fight that way. It´s deplorable what he is doing.

The labor unions?

There should be NO doubt in anyone´s mind that there´s little difference between the republican and democrat elites.

This conspiracy should gain even more support for the Tea Party candidates.

So, the party of Lincoln is defecting to good ol´ Jacksonian Democrats. Perfect. No more republic. No more representation. No more separation of powers. No more federalism. No more stinking Constitution. No more reason to pretend they are there to represent the people who elected them.

Now they can hold hands and celebrate the victory! They will no longer have to harass and harangue each other. They can grasp and hug each other as the old apparatchiks did in the old USSR. Won´t it be grand? Bread lines that stretch for blocks on end. Electricity rationed as a penance for offending the god of the elite, Gaia.

And perhaps an extension of the child president´s term in office. Since there is no concern for the foundation of the nation they all despise, even as they rape the citizens rights, why not have the neo-National Socialist rule for a few more years!

Good times to come! Celebrate! Rome will soon have company!

The Republican Party on a national level is finished, it´s time for the fat lady to sing.

The RINO clowns undermine TEA Party candidates in the general elections. Does the name Ken Cuccinelli from VA ring a bell?

Where is the Karl Rove gang of 6 and why aren´t they defending their RINO guys?

This "moderate Republican" illustrates precisely why the "old Guard" has to go. (By the way, a moderate republican is one who votes with the democrats. Do you hear much about "moderate democrats?") Boehner, John McLame, Lindsay Graham, Mitch McConnell - "backed" by "gurus" like Karl Rove, need to be booted. We´re better off without them than we are with them. Even a democrat (that also votes with the democrats) would be preferable.

Its not the party, its the folks with seniority that think getting along and seniority equal leadership. The union are the ultimate collectivist organization and it demonstrates how the establishment are Progressives. They will be astounded how little impact their ads have in saving their butts in the primaries.

I have been a life-long Republican so I keep receiving requests for donations from the RNC. Based on the way the Speaker of the House has been acting, along with other so called Republican representatives, I will no longer be making monetary contributions of any kind to the RNC. Today for the first time, and running the risk of an IRS audit, I sent in a check to the Tea Party Patriots organization.

The Republican Party sells itself as the proponents of limited government and free-market capitalism. In that they behave against these principles with their votes, their policies, and lukewarm defense of the rule of law, they have indeed earned the moniker “RINO” for they are Republicans In Name Only.

“The primaries are the place to fight out the inevitable ideological issues that arise from our big-tent party, if you can field an electable candidate. Then, of course, everyone needs to come together to support and vote for the winning nominee. If you don’t vote you’ll be responsible for another Democrat in office which will be worse.”

Seems to me we used to hear this wise advice delivered in pluperfect condescension storming out of the great plains whenever conservatives raised concerns about the lack of viable tactics or questioned motivations. Now that the GOP establishment has declared open warfare against the very people they claim to represent, can TEA movement people defend their positions without being denigrated as purist obstructionists enabling the Democrat Party?

Well folks, this should help make it clear what we as Conservatives are up against in our own party. Disgusting RINOs teaming up with corrupt labor unions to "beat the snot" out of Conservative TEA Party candidates? I always thought the Republican party has been infiltrated by DemocRATS. This makes it official. What a disgrace. Does anyone know of a labor union that isn´t corrupt? Or isn´t owned by the DemocRATS?

Recent figures pretty much prove that mainstream Republicans are having a devil of a time raising money. The contributions are going to Tea Party organizations due to their Democrat-like behaviors. The new Farm Bill adds a tax on live Christmas trees and another tax on home heating oil which is already running over $4 a gallon. Those of us living in rural areas don´t have many choices on how to heat our homes. Add to that the continuation of Ethanol subsidies which raise the price of gasoline, kill engines and raise the price of food and you have a lovely example of Republicans supporting thousand page bills they haven´t rea

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote.

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama.

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.

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

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
