Jenny Beth Martin: RNC Chairman Reince
Priebus Should Intervene In Mississippi

Bretbart´s Big Government, by Matthew Boyl

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 6/28/2014 9:11:48 AM

Jenny Beth Martin, chair of the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, is calling on Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Reince Priebus to intervene in the Mississippi Senate race over incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran´s reliance on Democratic voters to prevail in the GOP runoff and amid emerging claims of illegitimate ballots. "No one disputes that Thad Cochran´s vote total Tuesday was the result of crossover votes cast by Democrats -- in fact, Establishment Republicans and their operatives are bragging publicly about their ´brilliant´ strategy,” Martin said in a statement provided exclusively to Breitbart News.

Comments:
A very shrewd move by Ms. Martin. By calling out Priebus, the head of the RNC, she has just put the ball in his court. If he refuses, then conservatives cannot be blamed for not voting for Cochran and going with McDaniel as a write in candidate, obviously the RNC does not care about attaining their votes. If he does intervene, then he will draw attention to the issue and further exposing Cochran as an illegitimate winner.

Damned if he does and damned if he doesn´t.
Exactly what the Republican Establishment deserves.

Got choices?

How long has it been since we had an effective RNC Chairman? Think about it.

Jenny, honey, who do you think orchestrated what went down in Mississippi? Priebus is as corrupt as any of them. Probably more so, as he´s the one leading ´em.

Very proper action by Ms. Martin. Priebus is not likely even to acknowledge it, however.

They crossed a line, they know it. They´ve opened Pandora´s box and should be nervous. At least the ones with brains who weren´t openly laughing about it. Even Obama doesn´t cross his base in this way.

Support Cochrans defeat and new leadership in the GOP.

At this point it does not matter what the RNC does, they have been exposed. They, by their actions, showed their contempt for the base. This toothpaste will not go back into the tube. I will vote accordingly in November. How does Senator Michelle Nunn sound?

The longer Jenny Beth Martin seeks to keep her name in headlines the worse it is for grassroots conservatives, local tea party groups, and even Chris McDaniel´s career. This woman´s PAC collected over $9 million this year and didn´t give a dime to McDaniel´s campaign. She spent it on her $450,000 salary, direct mail and other junk. Even a third of the space on the stolen McDaniel yard sign was an advertisement for her PAC. Luckily for Dave Brat in Va., Ms. Martin judged him not worthy of support. With her help he might have lost. This Reince Priebus stunt is embarrassing. Reince Priebus equals two things: the Barbours and the Bushes. Even if Ms. Martin weren´t a money-grubber, she´s a poor front person. The NY Times published an op-ed she authored a few months ago and it was embarrassing, nothing of substance. She opened mentioning Sarah Palin--right there she lost the NYT audience, then went on complaining about Boehner. Fine, but a waste of a valuable opportunity to articulate what the problems are facing this country. Ms. Martin is a major problem at this point and needs to get off the stage.

Priebus simply says the election will be adjudicated by the state by its laws, and that´s it. Then what?

I´m shocked that anyone is shocked. Politics ain´t beanbag, it´s a rough, high stakes business. People have literally died trying. The "establishment" has an investment to protect, it did.

The truth is that the establishment Republicans don´t care about conservatives, and I´m not sure they care to necessarily win elections. The national party has no principles anymore as it stumbles to "moderate" - and part of that moderation is battling its "extremist" elements. Where else are conservatives going to go politically in our well-cemented "two-party system"? Third party?...go ahead. The GOP establishment lost with conservatives, it can lose without them.

#6 - "Senator Michelle Nunn" sounds like someone who will vote consistently with the far Left of her party, in order to get the committee assignments and other necessities she wants. (See other "moderate" Democrats, like Senator Kristin Gillibrand, for example.

She may run as Sam Nunn´s daughter, but she will vote like Vladimir Lenin -- as Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer instruct her.

Possibly, this shot to the foot just might kill them. Attempting to take the Senate is mighty hard when your base realizes that one party is no better than the other. They are both a party of asses.

Making one voice heard by sitting home this election. Doesn´t really matter, the vote never counted anyway.

Back in the 2012 Missouri Republican Primary for Senator we also had an incumbent Senator encourage Democrats to vote. It is an open primary similar to Mississippi. She also ran ads that led up to the primary that focused on the one candidate she thought she could beat in the general election. She being Claire McCaskill, Democrat. That is how we got Todd Akin and we all know how well that turned out. Talk about radioactive!

In comparison to Cochran, McCaskill´s tactics were a bit more subtle and slick while Cohcran´s was just plain brutal to the point of being obscene. Then Haley Barbour bragging about how those Democrats who did vote will probably see the GOP differently! For some reason I think the Missouri Democrats who voted don´t see Republicans any differently than the fools they truly are.

I agree with #13 and will give locally only.

Why Mitt Romney should not be

Lately there has been a lot of buzz about having Mitt Romney as the GOP nominee in 2016. And there can be little doubt that many things Mitt talked about from 2007 to 2012 have come true (crumbling of Iraq, Putin being our number one geo-political foe, Obamacare not being workable). And while there was no bigger supporter of Mitt Romney than I was (for the record I was a member of a group called Evangelical Christians for Mitt Romney and I also managed several precincts in Shenandoah County Virginia for the Romney campaign during the 2012 primary) the fact

Mississippi´s US Senate race has devolved into a shower of accusations piled on state Republican stalwarts of secret donations and vote-buying, and I´m rather enjoying it. Go ahead, Tea Party, I say. It´s time to shine some light on how elections are done in my state, and everywhere – even if it takes some whack-a-doo right-wingers to flip that switch. Though it´s been fun to watch the GOP establishment come under fire after Thad Cochran´s razor-thin primary runoff win last month, I´m mostly happy that others are finally clueing into what I´ve long known exists: evidence that elections in our state

After a disappointing primary season, the Tea Party is getting set for a revival going into the fall general elections with one of the nation´s leading movement representatives, the 2.5 million member TheTeaParty.net, bringing back its top strategist to run the organization. On Tuesday, the Washington-based group announced the appointment of Niger Innis as executive director. The prominent black conservative and civil rights activist ran an insurgent House campaign in Las Vegas, Nev., but came in second.

Life is hard. It´s harder still when an entire class of people with their hands out stands between you and success. Unfortunately, that´s increasingly the problem, all around the world. A recent New York Times piece tells the story of a Greek woman´s efforts to survive that country´s financial collapse. After losing her job, she tried to start a pastry business, only to find the regulatory environment impossible. Among other things, they wanted her to pay the business´s first two years of taxes up front, before it had taken in a cent. When the business failed, her lesson was this: "I,

Quasi-lobbyist runs as earmarker
in Kansas GOP primary
Washington Examiner, by Timothy P. Carney    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 7/6/2014 6:34:22 PM     Post Reply
Former Rep. Todd Tiahrt is a man on a mission — to reclaim the Republican Party for earmarkers. Tiahrt represented Kansas´ 4th district for 16 years, and for 14 of those years he sat on the House Appropriations Committee. From that perch, Tiahrt was a prolific porker, dealing out earmarks as if they were playing cards. In 2010, when Sen. Sam Brownback stepped down to run for Governor, Tiahrt ran for the open Senate seat but lost the GOP primary to his House colleague Jerry Moran. Lawyer and businessman Mike Pompeo took Tiahrt's place. Now, Tiahrt wants his seat back and is challenging Pompeo in the 2014

Sen. Pat Roberts Clicks Heels

At the eleven minute mark of this 15 minute interview, Kansas Senator Pat Roberts is reduced to a stumbling, bumbling pile of a 47 years in Washington incumbent who can´t manage to coherently explain why he doesn´t actually live in Kansas anymore. And perhaps the worst of it is when he admits that he does click his heels together to go back to Kansas on occasion .... seemingly only when he gets an opponent. Roberts may not have distinguished himself as that much of a wizard in D.C. over the years but if a slot opens up in Oz, perhaps Dorothy will consider him as a write in after hearing this embarrassing performance.

The New Aristocracy
Bretbart´s Big Government, by Ron Maxwell    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 7/5/2014 4:56:13 PM     Post Reply
In 1776 Americans declared themselves independent of more than arbitrary rule by a distant monarch. They also severed the ties of aristocracy. This was in itself a revolutionary notion. It meant that political power, its attendant privilege and economic advantages would no longer be transferred by the blood. Earldoms, dukedoms, and kingdoms were banished from the territory and from the future of the American people. The citizen became the self-identifying unit of self-rule. The generation of English colonists who gathered together in the summer of 1776 to declare their independence from the English crown knew that they had exhausted all other remedies.

It would be a lot easier for conservatives to tolerate the sanctimony of Republicans In Name Only (RINOs) if they weren’t so hypocritical — or in the case of Mississippi RINOs — despicably hypocritical. ‘Moderate’ Republicans never tire of telling us conservative extremists how they are inclusive and ready to reach across the aisle to get things done. While we are exclusive and alienate and people that disagree with us. Well the Sen. Thad Cochran campaign got things done in Mississippi all right and in the process of building their ‘big tent’ party the RINOs turned race–baiting 180 degrees. Formerly in Mississippi and

Earlier this year, the conventional wisdom was that the moderate establishment had taken control of the GOP back from the Tea Party and other "extremists." With Dave Brat defeating House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Chris McDaniel receiving the plurality of the votes in the primary for Senate in Mississippi earlier this month it appeared to be reversed. Now, with Cochran’s defeat of McDaniel in the runoff and my loss to Bob Beauprez in the Colorado gubernatorial primary, many are calling the deaths again. The Cook Political Report argued, “Reports of [the Tea Party’s] death were premature and reports of their

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has asked a pro-Thad Cochran Super PAC, called Mississippi Conservatives, to provide additional information about what the newspaper Roll Call said “appears to be campaign finance violations.” At issue are last-minute expenditures made by the PAC in the days before the initial June 3 primary. The FEC “Request for Additional Information” says the PAC does not appear to have disclosed some of its spending in a timely manner. The FEC notes in the letter sent to treasurer Brian Perry that failure to “adequately respond” by Aug. 1 “could result in an audit or enforcement action.”

The White House on Tuesday formally requested $3.7 billion in emergency funding from Congress to deal with an influx of Central American minors along the southern border. But the proposal was quickly met with broad skepticism among Republican lawmakers, who were doubtful that the package would be approved quickly — if at all. Administration officials said the request is part of a comprehensive strategy aimed at building more detention centers, adding immigration judges, and beefing up border patrols and air surveillance. President Obama has said he hopes such steps will both speed deportations and discourage adults from sending children on

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

Starting next week, House Republicans will launch a highly visible—and likely tumultuous—three-week process of bringing to the floor legislation to authorize their promised lawsuit against President Obama over his use of executive actions. "In theory, you could report out a resolution tomorrow and vote on it," said a House GOP aide on Tuesday. "But that is not the approach [the leaders] want to take." Rather, the aim is to display—if not actually engage in—a more deliberative process, even if amid controversy. This drawn-out script builds toward a potentially dramatic floor vote held just days, or even hours, before the House adjourns on

WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats said Tuesday that they had developed legislation to override the Supreme Court decision on contraceptives. The bill would ensure that women have access to coverage for birth control even if they work for businesses that have religious objections. The bill, developed in consultation with the Obama administration, would require for-profit corporations like Hobby Lobby Stores to provide and pay for contraceptive coverage, along with other preventive services, under the Affordable Care Act. The measure could be on the Senate floor as early as next week, Senate Democrats said. “Your health care decisions are not your boss’s

Fate hasn´t been kind to Hillary Clinton, at least not in its most recent phase. In 2008, when the plate was set for the national Democrats, she lost the nomination to Barack Obama, of scant years and no gravitas, who soared out of nowhere to wrench destiny from her on the unspecified promise of "change." Now, "change" has come, and people don´t like it. Iraq changed from a safe, stable ally (just ask Obama) to a terrorist haven, one of the reasons why, though no fellow Democrats seem likely to edge her, her chances of winning the White House seem dim.

Despite Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson vowing to "stem the tide" of unaccompanied illegal minors across the southern border with Mexico, thousands more are expected to enter the United States by the end of the year. With the system being overwhelmed, Border Patrol agents are concerned about minors who have admitted to being MS-13 members, a brutal street gang from El Salvador that has been successful in infiltrating American communities.

Screenwriter James Vanderbilt will make his directorial debut with the film, which will also star Cate Blanchett. Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. The book, written by Rather´s producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, a report that was based on documents that turned out to be forgeries.

President Barack Obama does not believe his temporary amnesty program for illegal immigrant children has exacerbated the border crisis even though the number of illegal immigrant kids crossing the border spiked the year after he unilaterally enacted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012. In fact, Obama thinks programs like DACA and a comprehensive amnesty bill are ways to solve the border crisis. Addressing the press Wednesday after meeting with Texas Governor Rick Perry to discuss the border crisis in Dallas, Obama, when asked if programs like DACA have caused or contributed to the crisis,
