Establishment GOP´s Tactics Will Backfire
Bretbart´s Big Government, by Tom Tancredo

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 7/5/2014 6:40:40 AM

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

Let the next American Revolution be as successful as the first.

Remember Mississippi!

Boehner, McConnell, and Graham should not have been re-elected. They are the establishment and because of them look where we are today. Boehner has dragged this feet on investigations, Graham wants the illegals granted amnesty and who knows what McConnell is all about. Our future looks really dim with them in office.

I will protest the establishment dirty tricks in MS by voting for the weaker candidate in the Republican runoff for senate in Ga, then vote for Michelle Nunn come November.

There is a way to peaceably start the revolution.

Vote for a democrat in Mississippi, Kentucky, and Boehner´s district. We can afford to lose Boehner´s seat. We may be able to afford to lose 2 senate seats.

If any of them lost, the message sent would be gargantuan!!! (and we need them out of our Congress, anyway)

I´s impossible to declare a movement dead when it mostly operated it he shadows anyway. Millions of reg repubicans have converted to the tea party perspective on many things and they´ll be voting in Nov.whether their candidate has tea party backing or not.They´re not out to give Pelosi and Reid another crack at runnnig us in to bankruptcy.

The media covering up the Cochran vote stealing episode is so hey can call the tea party dead. Donna Brazille said the blacks turned out because they were suppressed from voting for so long.the $15 tip for votes didn´t hurt anything.Their price has gone up,a bottle of Mad Dog doesn´t cut it anymore.

The movement that´s really dead is the labor union.The failed at Walmart and fast food so they´re forcing home healthcare workers to unionize.10´s of thousands have opted out of paying union dues in Wis. and millions more across the coutry wish they could.

The establishment used the most dishonest RAT tactics to win and turned on their own base fighting them much harder than they every fight the RATS or Obama. This tells us who are the friends and who are the enemies. I would endorse a movement for the base deserting select worst case establishment republicans. We don´t owe them loyalty. Let the RATS have the seats for now. I understand it is very damaging to have to clear up this problem at the very time that unity is needed to control Obama but that is not a battle of the tea party choosing. The establishment has made the decision for us. Nothing can or will be done to stop Obama until establishment republicans put the country ahead of their own goals.

#2, I am as mad as you are but we cannot allow Pelosi and Reid to succeed. We need to keep the House and control the Senate to stop the madness and decline of our country. When and if, we can accomplish this, it is time to work on getting rid of Boehner in 2016 and start a movement to recall McConnell, McCain and Graham. It is not easy but it can be done. We have the internet to do this. I know, maybe I am a dreamer, but short of a revolution, I don´t think we have any other choice. I live in Georgia and will vote for Perdue in the runoff. Kingston is backed by the Chamber of Commerce - enough said.

oh? and what practical difference is there between the vile traitors like Reid and Piglousy, and the vile traitors like McConnell, Cantor, Boehner, Jebbie, Barbour, Graham, McCain, and all the other "wiser heads" of the "elites" in the RNC? What there is, is a distinction without a difference. A pox upon them and their kind.

Bob Boauprez and Cory Gardner were nowhere to be seen during the recalls of the Democrat state senators in Colorado, but Tom Tancredo was out on the front lines. Well Mr. Boauprez and Mr. Gardner are going to have to get elected, if they can, without a lot of the votes of the base. I´m staying home.

#1: They haven´t been re-elected yet. They can still be voted out in the generals. I doubt that a write-in for the defeated primary challengers will be effective in that. Voting for their Democrat opponent has a much better chance of succeeding. IMO we will likely have two more years of Reid, regardless of the GOP´s misplaced enthusiasm.

If Boehner and McConnell don´t get tough on illegal immigration, the GOP hopes of recapturing the Senate will evaporate. They simply cannot win without our votes, and many if not most in our ranks will not vote GOP if there is any prospect of their supporting amnesty. And anything that allows these invaders to remain the the country with any form of legal status is amnesty. A path to citizenship is not required to meet that threshold. In that case, the "least bad" thing to do is first clean house within the GOP and then go after the Dems in subsequent elections.

I´m in Colorado. The way I see it is step one--get rid of the democrats. Step two, get rid of the RINOs.

Fending off persistent questions about his residency status, Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) noted in a radio interview last week that “my kids went to school” in Dodge City, Kansas, as a means of demonstrating his ties to the state he represents roughly 1,400 miles away in Washington, D.C. But a close inspection of that claim shows his children only attended school there for about three months, and attended and graduated from high school in Alexandria, Virginia, although they later attended college in Kansas. “We have declared Dodge [City] our residency; our kids went to school there.

Super PAC commits to spend $2 million
against embattled Maine governor
Washington Examiner, by Betsy Woodruff    Original Article

A Democrat-backed super PAC called Maine Forward has committed to spending $2 million against Republican Gov. Paul LePage and for Democratic nominee Mike Michaud in the run-up to the Pine Tree State´s elections this fall, according to the Bangor Daily News. LePage is a top target for the Democratic Governors Association, and a report published in Talking Points Memo that he discussed executing Democrats in a meeting with a sovereign citizen group called the Aroostook Watchmen have only burnished their hopes. LePage said that execution was not a discussion item in the meetings. But regardless, the news didn’t do him

Back in 2012, I shared a sadly amusing image about how the modern political process has degenerated into two wolves and a sheep voting what to have for lunch. I was making an argument in that column against majoritarianism (and that is a critical issue, as explained in this video), but there’s also a very mportant moral component to this debate. Walter Williams addresses this issue in his latest column. He starts by asking a hypothetical question. Suppose I saw a homeless, hungry elderly woman huddled on a heating grate in the dead of winter. To help the woman, I ask somebody for

Mark Levin Unveils Three-Step Border Plan

On Wednesday, conservative scholar and talk radio host Mark Levin unveiled his three-step border security plan on a dry erase board on Fox News´ Hannity. Appearing in a segment after pro-amnesty Republican Karl Rove, Levin, the conservative who was Attorney General Ed Meese´s chief of staff in the Reagan Administration, held up a dry erase board that read, "Deport! Secure Border! Cut $ From Foreign GOVTS!" Levin said his plan was a "humane program" that would discourage illegal immigrant children from making the treacherous journey to America so that they are not killed or raped. And he emphasized that America




Why Mitt Romney should not be
the 2016 GOP Nominee
American Thinker, by S. John Massoud    Original Article

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

Tea Party 2.0: TheTeaParty.net
plans movement´s revival

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. Innis, who challenged the election results, was the TheTeaParty.net chief strategist before taking leave to campaign. “After a raucous congressional run, I’m pleased to rejoin my

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
Together, Goes Back to Kansas
"Every time I get an opponent"

Posted By: mikkins2- 7/6/2014 6:12:54 PM     Post Reply
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
