The staggering price of
crushing the tea party

Politico, by Alexander Burns

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/25/2014 6:58:26 PM

National Republican leaders are toasting primary season as a smashing success over activist conservatives that has put the hard right on the ropes and given the Washington GOP the slate of candidates it wanted for 2014. Those victories, however, have come at a staggering cost — and Republicans are painfully aware of the price of putting down an intraparty insurrection. Establishment-aligned groups have already spent some $23 million on independent expenditures propping up favored House and Senate candidates in contentious primaries, according to a POLITICO review of Federal Election Commission records. In comparison, that’s the same sum of money that Republican

Comments:
The arrogance of these establishment Republicans is absolutely appalling. The fact that Cochrun had the audacity to side with Democrats rather than those of his own party just to win sickens and infuriates me.

They will find out the real cost on Wed morning in November when they realize the grass roots have abandoned them and they are looking at Majority Leader Reid and Speaker Pelosi (once more). But until they are physically carried out of the comfortable chairs under their sorry behinds, these RINOs will never learn.

I remember when Karl Rove hosted Rush´s show. We all have learned much about the GOP.

We have to ensure their defeat to separate them from their money. November is a good time to start.

The cost is higher than they realize. I am going to write-in a vote for someone other than Cornyn. Maybe we can get organized and get enough people to do that and make him lose. At this point, I would rather see a dim take his seat that that duplicitous traitor.

To all those who are going to stay home, there is another viable option.

We need those defeated in primaries to become third party candidates. Only the one who scored the highest so we actually have a shot at winning.

2014 is the year where conservatives need to make a stand and say "We´re mad as hell and we´re not going to take it any more."

Contact the top vote getting primary contestant who failed to unseat the incumbent and encourage them to run.

The real price may be the end of their "marriage" with Tea Party conservatives and their secession to form a new party.

Don´t stay home, #4. Vote. If the GOP candidate is a conservative, vote for him or her - but decide for yourself whether that is so. Don´t take their word for it. Too many RINOs sound oh, so conservative during the election cycle and then join their "colleagues across the aisle" once safely past the election. Examine their record, not their words. If you must, vote for a third party, write-in a vote, even vote for the Democrat in exceptional cases like McConnell and Boehner - but cast your vote. Even if your candidate doesn´t win, your vote will at least be counted as a protest. This is no time to stay silent.

With #8, I appeal to the angry and the disillusioned; please do not stay home and do not vote for the Democrat. If there is no one that you would choose to write in, then vote none of the above.

Now more than ever, our votes need to be heard, even if it is a vote of no confidence. They truly believe that we have nowhere else to go and they are hoping that we will quietly withdraw. That means it´s time to get loud.

We are going to lose some! We may lose many. But that does not mean we are losing.

If you can´t vote for someone then find a way to vote against what you know is wrong. But make sure they hear you.

We will never give up never give in and never stop fighting until you are all swept out of office lock stock and barrel and real Constitution respecting, America loving, freedom and liberty driven men and women Congressmen and Senators take your places. On this mission we p;edge our lives our fortunes and our sacred honor. So be it. Fight´s on. Let´s roll.

Thank you #16, well said, and all the other posters who expressed defiance to the establishment and determination to prevail. I like the idea of running a single conservative 3rd party against every one of these RINO´s who managed to survive the primary by hook or by crook. Otherwise I would seriously vote for the dRat to see people like McConnel, Bhoener, and Cochran taken to the woodshed and evicted from DC. Enough is enough. Yes, let´s roll.

Thad Cochran´s Democrat opponent Travis Childers has already stated he wants a series of debates beginning in July. It will cost millions trying to get Cochran to speak in complete, coherent sentences for an hour or two sit down without notes or assistance. Of course it won´t be possible, but it will cost a lot to try.

Is anyone here old enough to remember when Ross Perot was a 3rd party candidate in 41´s second election and the Republican party vote split and then we ended up with Bill Clinton?

If you think that just hurts the Republicans then you are horribly short-sighted - it hurts everyone. You´re shooting yourself in the foot when you do that.

Furthermore perhaps there´s something we need to learn from the Democrats: we fought the good fight and we´ll fight a better fight next time, and make more inroads between now and then - but when it comes to the general election, you gotta stick with voting Republican, as awful as that sounds right now. The alternative would have awful consequences if we are going to turn this country around. Plus, we still have 2016 around the corner. Now is not the time to pick up your toys and go home! This is an adult´s game. So toughen up!

Ex-New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson joined Greta Van Susteren tonight to open up about her firing and her experience at the Times. Abramson also defended a claim she has made previously that the Obama White House is the “most secretive” she’s ever dealt with. Abramson said she’s “never dealt with an administration where more officials… demand that everything be off the record.” She cited criminal investigations against journalists’ sources, including the current case involving Times reporter James Risen, to make the case of just how secretive the White House is. In fact, she told Van Susteren, “I spoke

Attorney General Eric Holder granted an exclusive interview to ABC´s "This Week With George Stephanopoulos" from London, where he was portrayed by ABC as deeply concerned about the global terrorist threat. What stands out from this very rare session — Holder hasn´t been on Sunday network television in four years — is that Holder pulled out the oldest, lamest card in the Obama political deck: President Barack Obama and he are opposed by people who should be suspected of racism. And darned if he didn´t get away with it again. Pierre Thomas, ABC´s Justice Department correspondent, interviewed Holder and asked him why he

The White House won’t reveal where it is housing thousands of Central American juvenile migrants because their privacy rights trump Americans’ right to know what‘s happening in their neighborhoods, press secretary Josh Earnest declared July 16. “The public does have a right to know what’s happening… [but] at the same time, there are privacy rights that are included in the law that this administration is committed to enforcing and following,” Earnest told Ed Henry, Fox News’ White House correspondent. “We are not surprised in the least to see the Obama administration imitate the smugglers,” William Gheen, founder of Americans for Legal Immigration

President Obama on Wednesday announced new sanctions against Russia for its involvement in Ukraine and other foreign policy moves in response to several international concerns across the Middle East. "We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said from the White House. "And none of these challenges lend themselves to quick or easy solutions, but all of them require American leadership. And as commander in chief, I’m confident that if we stay patient and determined, that we will, in fact, meet these challenges." The president said the new sanctions against Russia -- which hit major Russian banks and

Benghazi attacks premeditated

Transcripts of congressional testimony released by the House Armed Services committee are the latest in a growing body of evidence that the 2012 Benghazi attacks were premeditated. Gen. Carter Ham, who at the time led the military´s Africa command, known as Africom, told Congress in April the terrorists who attacked the CIA annex, during the third wave of the terrorist assault, had professional training. "Given the precision of the attack, it was a well-trained mortar crew," Ham said, adding the mortar strike showed "a degree of sophistication and military training that is relatively unusual and certainly, I think, indicates that

A month before former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called for President Barack Obama to be impeached on the pages of Breitbart News over his lawlessness on illegal immigration, Obama was already concerned that his unilateral actions on immigration could warrant impeachment. He even kind of joked with pro-amnesty activists not to push him to do something that would get him impeached. Here´s how Politico describes what occurred during a private meeting between Obama and pro-amnesty activists last month: President Barack Obama listened to immigration activists run through a long wish list of executive actions – then added a request of

Despite evidence that the current border crisis is at least partly the result of its previous executive action on immigration, the White House decided it was merely a "public relations problem" and moved forward with plans to issue further executive actions along similar lines. The New York Times has a piece out today which contains some new insight into the White House´s thinking about the border crisis and how it relates to the President´s stated goal of taking action on immigration without Congress. The Times article states, "In the days leading up to the Rose Garden speech, there were discussions in the

The central weakness of the Republican´s political position in Washington has been on vivid display as the situation at the southern border has devolved into a complete crisis. As tens of thousands of foreign nationals overwhelm the border and render our sovereign boundary meaningless, Republicans in DC are tinkering with legislative fixes they say will address the situation. As if the crisis at the border is the result of some drafting error or a failure to enact some specific law relevant to this precise set of circumstances. It is a fool´s errand.

WESLACO - BCFS Health and Human Services on Wednesday withdrew a proposal to turn a Weslaco hotel into a facility for young illegal immigrants. A media release from the group of non-profit agencies cited "negative backlash caused by information misreported to the public" as the reason for walking away from the project. BCFS last week submitted a request for a conditional use permit to relocate its facility from Harlingen to Weslaco. The agency had agreed to use $3.8 million in non-government funds to buy the Palm Aire Hotel and Suites on FM 1015. BCFS sought to turn the hotel into

Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
