GOP bosses bamboozle
Tea Party patriots

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Brent Budowsky

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 6/29/2014 7:22:11 AM

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) vowed to crush the Tea Party, and with help from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) in Kentucky, he did, and nationally, he will. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has sent the Tea Party to the back benches, and after the recent defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), is his successor any different than him? No. Did anything change? No. The Tea Party is not being done in by Democrats; it is being done in by the party of big business, crony capitalism, big money from insider Wall Street and big banks, the Chamber of Commerce and the corporate lobbying wing of the Tea Party's real nemesis:

And we are supposed to care what this inside the beltway, out of touch Hill writer thinks because why?
The GOP "Boss Hogs" may have won primaries, but still have to get votes in November. That is something their well to do financiers cannot give them. Money doesn´t vote.

I think this short article gets to the heart of it. We all expect to be attacked by our enemies. Where it hurts is when we are betrayed by those who pretend to be our friends.
The GOP apparently thinks the votes they lose by alienating conservatives will be offset by the bribes they get from their corporate donors, plus the few "moderates" that might vote for them. Good luck with that.
I owe nothing to the GOP, and am looking forward to the usual cries of "not voting for the republican is voting for the democrat!" So far I havent seen much difference either way.

This has been part of politics forever.....nothing new.

The last thing I need to do is listen to a Liberal stirring the pot.

Republican leadership IS in fact foolish and dishonest. Snatching defeat from the Jaws of victory.

One very simple first step: stop allowing registered Democrats to vote in our primaries. Is that too much to ask ?

I have been voting Republican/Conservative for 62 Years and I will never vote Republican again, I will vote for "Teaparty.People. When these Stuffed shirt repubs Like McConnel and Boehner attack the " Tea Party" people they are attacking The older citizens of this country who helped build America,and who kept this country on the right course.
People like Boehner and McConell have worked at feeding themselves at the trough, paid for by "The Teaparty People" who only want a smaller Govt. which leaves more of their Income to feed themselves and keep up with the cost of Living.

If that means that Democrats win,
So Be It.

I expect, on average, conservatives as a group are more intelligent then liberals; but, that is not to say that ALL conservatives are intelligent-there are stupid conservatives.

The TRUE conservatives whom votes for establishment republicans in November (and there are some whom will), are stupid: Why would a Tea Party Patriot vote for a politician who´s stated goal is to destroy him/her?

I intend to vote Republican for the House where, because of the limited geography, a grass roots effort can have effect. I will vote in R primaries for the weakest candidate for the senate then vote for the dem in the general. For those who question my conservatism (there is at least one know it all on this thread) I am 62 years old thus will not be effected by sweeping liberal theft and policy. Those most affected are the young who help keep the liberal thieves in power, thus the fight is not worth it.

#10: Had you the ability-or open mind- to read my referenced comment(s) correctly, your puzzlement would be satisfied: as a consideration, I´ll repeat my logic for you to contemplate:

I believe Ms. Nunn will piously consider her father´s reputation for being a prudent man when making her own decision, as she follows in his footsteps. Does that make clearer my position, for you?

Wow! Cause for celebration for democrats! They are guaranteed power for the next 100 years because "conservatives" are going to vote FOR them, rather than against them to teach "rinos" a lesson! The fact that this will destroy what is left of our economy and traditions matters not, it is proving the point that counts! BTW, it´s agreed, "money doesn´t vote", but intelligent voters DO vote to WIN! What a strange world we live in! Good Grief!

This from the article;

"The Tea Party is not being done in by Democrats; it is being done in by the party of big business, crony capitalism, big money from insider Wall Street and big banks, the Chamber of Commerce and the corporate lobbying wing of the Tea Party´s real nemesis: the big bosses of the GOP!"

I have news for the author, the Marxist democrats are just as much if not more so in bed with big business and big government. Both business and politicians are in politics for one reason only, that being power to get as much taxpayer dollars as possible for their own use. People in politics and businesses do not get rich from being great producers of outstanding knowledge and wisdom; they get rich lining their own pockets with laws and rules that benefit mostly themselves with a small portion going to the little people which fools them into believing they really care about the little people. FOOLS.

Do you actually believe the financial bailout that both parties could not wait to vote into law was to save the country for the little people. These very politicians caused the financial turmoil that created the financial collapse and mostly the were Marxist democrats Dodds and Franks along with Pelosi and Reed.

Obama and McCain both suspended their election campaigns and rushed back to D.C. just so they could vote for the bailout and brag about the fact in their campaigns.

Both of the Marxist communist parties leadership have bitter hatred for The Tea Party as it represents the end of their destruction of America for their own financial gain and to hell with the little people. The leadership will have their fortunes stashed away where it will be safe.

As with anything else, Pride being the universal sin, the Tea Party nullified itself. It could have been a great left arm of the GOP.

The Tea Party has the heart and more of the trust of the GOP voters in some states and certainly the energized voters but they, if in charge, would be mincemeat in a general against the democrats and their media.

The Tea Party was such a threat to the Democrats because they would peacefully assemble thay they were be tageted for the annihilation.

With joined power to make a stronger bundle of sticks (Sequoia or Tecumseh)it is still not too late to present a united front against the real enemy, the Kingdom of Darkness.

Retreating and licking wounds? No time. Take a look at how Mitt Romney did not do that. It is not what one thinks they could have done but what they still counts--as Pride is cast aside.

#16 - since my Repliican congressman became my congressman,my quality of life has been lowered. My income has gone down, mymcosts have gone up, and he´s voted more than 50% in ways that I believe don´t benefit me and are against my interests.

He won´t get my vote in the primary, nor will he get my vote in the general election. Why should my tax dollars pay for his $180k per year, millions in staff and travel, while he doesn´t represent me? To keep a Republican team in charge in DC that regularly vote against my interests?

There really is very little difference in how my RINO votes versus how the Dems vote (since he votes with them more than not).

Screw ´me - I´ll be voting like I always do, but in ways that I think support my interests, not the GOPs. They might not need my money cause they can get it from others, but they do need my vote, which they won´t get at all. I´m done holding my nose.

The GOP is returning to its roots. Big government cronies are fighting back to keep their power, money, and elite lifestyle.

Unless we reach critical mass and can all walk into a new Freedom Party, we will continue to infiltrate the GOP from the ground up and work to restore integrity and common sense to the Republican Party. It won´t be pretty, but if we weren´t threatening them, they wouldn´t be openly courting their fellow cronies in the Democrat Party.

It´s so great, Utah politicians voted this year to enact open primaries there. Mitt Romney´s enthusiastic support put the measure over the top. Big money was bamboozled in 2010 by the removal of Utah Sen. Bob Bennett and election of Mike Lee. By switching to open primaries big money is back in charge and it becomes much more difficult for someone like Mike Lee to be elected. Mitt Romney didn´t lose in 2012, the campaign was a formality leading to his new career. His job today is 24/7 media darling and RNC front man to consume all oxygen so none is available for the candidate we need. If you read the details of the 2012 campaign it´s all but stated that neither Romney nor the RNC intended him to win. The name of Romney´s son Josh has been floated to run for Senate from Utah to take out Sen. Mike Lee from the left. Such matters are discussed at Romney millionaire and billionaire confabs.

The Timber King is a member of our county´s Republican Central Committee. Yesterday he attended a regional meeting of northern California central committees. All of these county committees are firmly in the hands of TEA movement supporters.

It was revealed that the Cal GOP establishment deliberately sabotaged O´Donnell, the TEA backed conservative running for the nomination for governor against Moonbeam. A week before the election O´Donnell was 10 points ahead of Kashkari (Kash ´n Karry). Former GOP Governor Pete Wilson sent out a letter to Republican voters filled with lies and distortions about O´Donnell and Kash ´n Karry squeaked out the win. Kash ´n Karry has never held elected office, but he was put in charge of TARP by George Bush and he had the public endorsement of Romney, Rove and Co.

Now Kash ´n Karry is trolling the central committees for point people to help is campaign. No one from the northern counties is interested in working for this Old Guard hack. We will encourage our voters to skip the governor´s race and vote for the conservatives down ticket. We´ve got some great candidates for the state legislature. The TEA movement is alive and pushing back against the GOP establishment from the inside. We´re tired of being stabbed in the back and then told we are the disloyal ones.

It will take time, and I´m afraid the sands in the hourglass will run out before we can save our Constitutional Republic.

Thanks to Posters #31 and #32 for their "boots on the ground" news of the Establishment shenanigans. Here in WNY the GOP is simply an inept front for the Elites.

Conservative eyes are wide open. We may still feel the sting of Elite treachery and complicity with the crony capitalists aka Romny-Rove-McCain Inc, but after MS there is nothing they can do to surprise us, or to guilt us into thinking that our ® votes can make a difference.

Gov.

Mr. Christie’s three-city swing through Iowa, the first state to have a say on the presidential race, will represent a highly public resumption of his White House ambitions after six months of scandal. It was deliberately constructed to showcase what his advisers believe distinguishes him from the emerging Republican field: his personality and ability to interact spontaneously

First proposed in 2008, this massive infrastructure project would bring low-cost crude oil from fields in Canada southward to the United States. Despite nearly six years of government reviews — and nearly four dozen oil and gas pipelines already safely operating between the U.S. and Canada — the Obama administration and the State Department still have not approved the

Whenever the subject of politics and religion comes up, some individuals wish to believe that the two are not connected. Yet, many people are concerned with the speed of America’s moral collapse. Throughout both the bible and world history, the two have collided (wars were fought over religion). When the Kings and Judges in the bible were godly, the people and the land flourished. On the other hand, the evil kings and judges brought famine and destruction upon the people and the land (does any of this sound familiar?)

The state’s top education board voted on Tuesday to retain legal counsel, a sign it is gearing up for a lawsuit against Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal after he issued a series of executive orders in an attempt to withdraw the state from the Common Core.

Reality vs. Political Correctness:
Amnesty and the Fight for America´s Soul

Dr. Ben Carson once made the observation that “political correctness” acts as a “muzzle” to quell legitimate dissent against the status quo. That is undoubtedly a true statement. But to drive in the stakes and build our intellectual ramparts on this point is little more than ceding coveted ground in an argument against a completely unfounded doctrine that presents falsehoods as facts. There is a more fundamental observation upon which we can mount our legitimate defense against the doctrine of “political correctness,” and it lies in the simplest inspection of the phrase “politically correct.” Inherent in those two words’ juxtaposition is

By its own admission, the Arab world loves death more than it loves life. Consider that "during all periods of their history, the ancient Egyptians seem to have spent much of their time thinking of death and making provisions for their afterlife. The vast size ... and the ubiquity of their funerary monuments bear testimony to this obsession." Consider that the Palestinian world teaches its children to embrace shahid, or martyrdom. It is an aberrant culture where parents celebrate their own children´s deaths by the promotion of suicide terrorism.

Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters. [Snip] It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. 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 First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. 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. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“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.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
