Tea Party Takes on Boehner
The Daily Beast, by Patricia Murphy

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 2/21/2014 9:11:27 AM

Conservative groups like the Madison Project are using a candidate’s support for House leaders as a litmus test in the mid-term elections.{SNIP}“The base is ubiquitously unhappy with everything they stand for, their associations, and the way they operate,” Horowitz said. “There is no purpose in asking people to walk the neighborhood to canvass for someone who would support the status quo.”

Comments:
The picture is a classic! The color also represent the hopes of the Tea Party movement getting any loving from the Republican Establishment.

Got Tea?

Mitch McConnell is the epitome of what’s wrong with the Republican Party. He and his deputies, including but not limited to John McCain & Lindsey Graham are nothing more than Democrat-lite. I’m disgusted with the Republican leadership and sincerely hope that this year’s election will result in more TEA party victories. I don’t see any other hope for the Republic. These career politicians, both the RINOs and Dems are perfect examples of why we need term limits in Congress.

And this, in a nutshell, is why the tea party is losing me and others like me. I have contributed $ in the past, am for smaller government, less spending, less regs and all the rest, but you have to WIN the Senate to change things, and that means staying united behind Republicans, even if they are the elites you are not wildly happy with at all times. Destroying Boehner, McConnell, Graham and the others, when we all share the desire to get rid of Obamacare, is nuts! YOU DO NOT CUT OFF YOUR NOSE TO SPITE YOUR FACE and that is what happening, especially in the Ted Cruz, Jim DeMint factions. I was not wildly pro Romney but he would have done a whole lot to get us back on the road to fiscal health and he is pro Constitution........and if Tea Party types had gone to the polls and backed him we would not face the banana republic we are now seeing emerge.

Posters like Rocket Scientist are NOT rocket scientists. In their quest for total ideological purity over common sense they are more like Obama than not. And if followed they will cause us to once again pull defeat out of the mouth of victory re: the Senate. Way to go..........

The reason the republican party does poorly in national elections now is the "big government" expansion and spending binge that occurred the last time r´s had control of government. SO DO NOT LECTURE ME TO SUPPORT ANY R WHO RUNS, I will not, and yes I think "purity tests" are justified to earn my support and vote. Just "little" things like smaller government, reduced spending, and the constitution. The definition of insanity is doing the same think over and over expecting different results, "establishment republicans" had their chance. NOT AGAIN

Well, #5 and 6, I would say it´s no great loss then. I voted for Romney, but like so many other tea partiers, I have about had it with the GOPe. Don´t bother me with the so-called ideological purity BS. How about some basic conservatism for openers? BTW, if you believe the pub "leaders " you name really share a desire to defeat Zippycare then you obviously believe their empty rhetoric and not their total lack of effort.

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

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. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) said it was time to retire House Speaker John Boehner´s (R-OH) excuses. "Isn´t it high time we retire John Boehner´s biggest excuse we control one-half of one-third government?" Huelskamp said to a rousing and prolonged ovation of the GOP leadership´s main excuse to not fight for conservative policies. He said Republicans control the preeminent center of power in the preeminent branch of the U.S. Congress. Huelskamp, who got elected in the historic Tea Party wave in 2010 that

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? In practice we are asking someone to give up something very precious, simply so another may enjoy it. It´s hard to imagine anyone readily accepting such an

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

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

"Because he was smarter than the rest of us." Here´s McCain´s full quote, from Time: "I thought when he had a couple of dinners with Republican senators, we really had a good environment there.

He leads a company that some would consider the epitome of ruthless global capitalism. But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.
