Is the Tea Party Over?
American Conservative, by W. James Antle, III

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 5/12/2014 2:56:31 PM

Last week, Greg Brannon failed to force a runoff in the North Carolina Republican primary for U.S. Senate. Polls show Paul Broun fading to third or fourth place in Georgia’s primary later this month. Nobody seems to have laid a glove on Lindsey Graham in South Carolina, whose primary will be held in June. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was panned by conservatives for the prediction he made to the New York Times about Tea Party primary challengers. “I think we are going to crush them everywhere,” he said. “I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere

My question is: How many of the people running as ´Tea Party´ Members, aren´t really bankrolled by the Rats?

Some of the ones around here (SW Ohio), were a little raw, like Mitch´s Opponent, Matt Bevin...

That is why conservatives will never really be "at home" in a GOP whose leadership vows to crush them at every opportunity - and has done so recently in 1965 and 1989. They have no long term place in the minds of the established progressive elite of the GOP, other than to dutifully march to the polls and pull that (R) lever.

That is why the myriad Tea Parties must coalesce - along with Libertarians, Constitutionalists, and others - into a new political party that is not constrained by 501(c)(4) rules, can vet its candidates, can protect its "brand" via trademark and copyright law, can strike back at those who attack it legally or politically, can present a coherent alternative platform to the voting public, and can seriously unwind the century old march toward progressivism to preserve the Republic as the Framers originally intended it.

That is why those who would lead the conservative movement must get on with it. Time is running out.

There needs to be ONE Tea Party candidate to unite behind. When there´s more than one, the votes split and the incumbent wins.

What was Huckabee thinking?

The TEA Party much like the 93-94 populist groundswell has moved the Republican party to the right. It has done as much as it can for now. It´s up to voters to get to the polls and change the Senate, then hold their elected officials feet to the fire. The drive behind the ´94 movement lasted about 4 years too.

I held my politician´s feet to the fire during the Obamacare battle. For what?? They still shenaniganized that train wreck into existence.
Now I get to vote for a republicrat senate candidate who is about an inch to the right of the democrat incumbent. For what?
My "conservative" congressional candidate propelled an agenda 21 sustainable food council through the state legislature and now the republicrats expect me to vote for him too.
When my choice is to get shot or stabbed in the back, what choice is there?
Republcrats can stuff it. There just is no reason to play the game anymore. It´s rigged.

Mr. Antle must´ve been tuned in to the Laura Ingraham show the day Lady Lucianne was on. He agrees with the ladies and so do I.

The TEA Party brand, weak and unlikely to attract young voters in the first place, has been seriously damaged by recent funding mismanagement news. Time to crawl out of that old snakeskin into something newer and shinier...but still with the bite and message of the Gadsden flag

The essence and success of the TEA Party in 2010 and beyond ha.d little to do with the name -- but everything to do with basic human principles of freedom, individual accountability, and fairness in dealings. The TEA Party was uniquely American.

The TEA Party is dead. Long live the American Party!

After much thought, I´ve come to the conclusion that most humans want someone else (someone superior to them), to make their decision for them. To follow are just a FEW examples to support my supposition.

1). After the American Revolution was over and we were free of British (monarchy), rule, our leaders, immediately, wanted to appoint George Washington King (he wouldn´t accept the title).

2). In early America, land was for the taking, yet many preferred the ´safety of being subjects of officials, and joined the Army, instead.

3). During the North American fur trading era, a majority of fur trappers preferred to work for ´safe´ wages with the Hudson Bay, and other, fur trading companies, rather than take the, potentially, more lucrative option of working as independent contractors.

4). In the late nineteenth, and early twentieths centuries a majority of men preferred to work for companies whose owners were looked upon as mentors, who looked after their families needs (some worked for the same man, for as many as forty to forty-five years), rather than make their own financial decisions: to their credit, many DID encourage their off-springs to attend college, in order to ´better´ themselves.

After the 1950´s when business owners became more ´crass´ and began laying-off or, outright firing, employees after they reached fifty-years of age, caused workers, especially women, to look more toward government for security rather than have trust in business owners to take care of their needs.

There are many more examples to support my thinking, but I´ve offered enough to make my point. Freedom, and self reliance are NOT all roses and cupcakes.

In NC, Independents are not allowed to vote in the primaries. With conservatives leaving the GOP to become Independents, the problem may not be that people don´t want the conservative candidate. The system is set up so Independents can´t participate. I certainly would have voted for Brannon if I could have!

The very existence of the Team Party says that a significant fraction of the populace has discernment. That discernment also transcends into survival and the Tea Party knows that they are in Obama´s cross-hairs and that the GOP is thankful that they are in the cross hairs. (note McConnell´s "crush" statement)

Bottom Line: The Tea Party is alive and well - but is not stepping into the line of fire. Let´s just say that this is not unlike the Revolutionary war. Keep your camouflage on.

#8, It should be noted that Richard Mourdock was running from Indiana, and he was the Tea Party candidate, endorsed by Sarah Palin.

Todd Akin was the candidate from Missouri, and John Brunner (good guy) was the Tea Party candidate.

Voting for a politician and then "holding his feet to the fire" is contradictory at best. The possibility of not being voted for IS holding their feet to the fire. Once elected they go right back to their criminal ways; selling or trading their votes, rewarding their big donors and ignoring their oaths.
Then, a few months before the election they try to convince us they will straighten up. McCain is a perfect example.
To blazes with all of them. Dont vote for them if they haven´t earned it. Never mind what they say.

The elites better hope it´s not the end of the TP because it provides a safety valve which we are going to need. However, when the RNC spends more money to defeat tea party/right wing candidates than Dems you know we´re in trouble.

The big societal division is/will be corrupt parasitic government bureaucrats (who will do and say anything to maintain their hold on power) versus the rest of us. Towns, cities and states will succumb in increasing numbers to their unfunded pension liabilities but not before they try to squeeze every last drop of property tax from homeowners.

Meanwhile, the DC fascists will come after the only sources of funds left to shore up the failing social programs. Got a 401k, IRA or money in the bank - kiss it goodbye - all in the name of redistributive social justice.

The civil discontent that is building worldwide is fueled by frustration at government corruption. What you see in Ukraine or Thailand today you´ll see here tomorrow.

Zero evidence of a Walker "criminal scheme"
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel [WI], by Christian Schneider    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/21/2014 5:59:00 AM     Post Reply
Sometimes, the court of public opinion overrules a state’s actual courts. And in Scott Walker’s case, there is little chance for appeal. On Thursday morning, hundreds of pages of documents relating to the “John Doe II” investigation of Gov. Scott Walker’s 2012 recall campaign were ordered released. These documents comprised a number of legal filings by both prosecutors and defendants. But some media and liberal groups picked up on one specific 2013 charge by prosecutors that alleged Walker had been part of a “criminal scheme” to circumvent campaign finance laws. Immediately, national news outlets and liberal activists ran with the

President Barack Obama and wife Michelle have never been your typical working stiffs. With four Ivy League degrees between them, they’ve enjoyed high incomes and strong job security. But before and during college, they each worked minimum-wage jobs. And there was a time when they felt the same kind of financial aches and marriage strains that today’s dual-income families know all too well. As a young married couple in Chicago, they were mired in student debt, juggling multiple jobs and two kids, and bickering over who did what housework. “I wouldn’t fold,” remembers the president. “I didn’t separate, and Michelle’s

If I close my eyes, I can remember the first apartment where I lived with my family in Newark, N.J., in the late 1930s. The rooms were lined up like train cars—you had to go through one to get to another—and there wasn´t any heat or hot water. Heat came from the kitchen stove that ran all day on coal, and if you needed hot water for a bath or to wash, a huge kettle was put up. Fortunately, when I was 6, my family moved to Stephen Crane Village, Newark´s first low-income housing project. I thought we were rich. We

Democrats are giddy over the unsealing of “secret” documents that charge Scott Walker’s recall campaign with illegal coordination with outside conservative groups. To name just a few: USA Today: “Prosecutors: Wis. Gov. Scott Walker in criminal scheme.” Associated Press: “Prosecutors: Gov. Walker part of criminal scheme.” Washington Post: “How the State of Wisconsin alleges Scott Walker aides violated the law, in 1 chart.” If you didn’t know better, you might think this is a big story, highly damaging to one of America’s most successful governors.

Looking too good could literally become a crime under newly proposed federal legislation, which would give the Federal Trade Commission power to regulate Photoshop image editing software use in advertising and other media. The Truth in Advertising Act of 2014 or “Anti-Photoshop Act” was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives earlier this year by Florida Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen along with Democrats Lois Capps of California and Theodore Deutch of Florida.

Michelle Obama is trying to save the 2010 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. And who isn’t for healthy and hunger-free kids, right? It turns out that it was a struggle for her and she’s got an idea about how the government can make it easier for others. In an interview with MSN’s Healthy Living, she made two particular statements that deserve further comment. Before coming to the White House, I struggled, as a working parent with a traveling, busy husband, to figure out how to feed my kids healthy, and I didn’t get it right. Our pediatrician had to pull me aside and point out some things that were going wrong.

The Obama administration’s claim to have been surprised by the wave of children flooding over out borders may turn out to be another political lie of the year. Sundance of Conservative Treehouse noticed a very peculiar advertisement: On January 29th of this year, the federal government posted an advertisement seeking bids for a vendor contract to handle “Unaccompanied Alien Children“. Not just any contract mind you, but a very specific contract – for a very specific number of unaccompanied minors: 65,000. • Why would DHS and ICE be claiming “surprise” by the current influx of unaccompanied minors on the border

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continues to tour the nation, promoting her new book, Hard Choices, and a possible 2016 candidacy. Her book tour, filled with gaffes and missteps, has lagged and perhaps failed to live up to expectations. But that´s not all. Her book, when compared to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin´s political memoir, Going Rogue, has woefully underperformed in sales. And it’s pretty cut and dried.
