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

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.

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.

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.

It may sound pedestrian to point out, but it’s critical to restate why it’s so important that our nation is called the United States of America, and not simply America. The full name emphasizes that the Founders viewed the nation not as one monolithic entity but as a union of sovereign entities delegating limited powers to a central government.To preserve this balance, the Founders put a number of checks in the U.S. Constitution, most notably creating the Senate, which allows for equal membership from every state, thus preventing states with larger populations from running roughshod over the interests of smaller

In a recent New York Times column, Paul Krugman made the assertion that “self-proclaimed libertarians deal with the problem of market failure both by pretending that it doesn’t happen and by imagining government as much worse than it really is.” But suppose we flip that around — substituting “muddle-headed progressives” for “self-proclaimed libertarians” and “government failure” for “market failure.” Compliments to Per Bylund, a research professor at the Hankamer School of Business at Baylor University, for making the necessary adjustments in a blog post at Mises. org.

Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel has filed his official challenge of the June 24 GOP primary runoff results against incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) in state court, he and his lead attorney Mitch Tyner announced Thursday. "Republicans did not elect the nominee on June 24," McDaniel said in a statement, adding that “we are excited for the opportunity for Republicans to reclaim their primary process.” "This challenge is not about the candidates,” McDaniel said. “It is about the integrity of Mississippi´s election process, and we are committed to ensuring that process is accurate and fair for future Republican candidates.”

Late last month, as members of Congress were poised to leave for their summer recess, the House Republicans’ top policy experts found themselves in a barren conference room in the Capitol’s basement, negotiating with the party’s most ardent opponents of immigration overhaul. As senior members of the Judiciary Committee looked on, the opponents — Representatives Raúl R. Labrador of Idaho, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Steve King of Iowa and Mo Brooks of Alabama — reshaped two bills to address the rush of unaccompanied children trying to enter the country illegally. Representative Michele Bachmann, Republican of Minnesota, was there, too, and she

Roger Clegg and Hans A. von Spakovsky deserve high praise for debunking the latest GOP brainchild that does nothing to help the party nationally — a Senate resolution encouraging all private-sector employers to adopt the National Football League’s “Rooney Rule” — and illustrating that “conservative” Republicans, too, can be limousine liberals. Five GOP senators — including presidential hopefuls Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, and Rob Portman — think both commercial and nonprofit enterprises should, per the NFL and Black Entertainment Television founder Robert L.

If the House makes any changes whatsoever to the immigration bill that blew up and died before Speaker John Boehner tried to bring it back to life—and then votes on those changes on Thursday evening or on Friday—it would be a violation of Boehner’s own 72-hour rule. “I proposed a 72-hour minimum time for members to read bills,” Boehner said as House minority leader on May 14, 2009. “I think it’s important that members do have a chance.” "Americans not only expect lawmakers to know what they’re voting on, they deserve to know what’s in these bills as well,” Boehner added on

On Thursday, the House GOP imploded over its border bill to solve the child-migrant crisis, pulling the legislation from the floor for lack of votes. And there, standing among the legislative wreckage, stood the proud senator from Texas, Ted Cruz. Not literally, of course. But the tea party Texan is once again smack in the middle of a House Republican debacle. With a reach as wide as his state, the freshman senator has his arm around conservative House Republicans. He has been lobbying them over Chick-fil-A and pizza to change the House bill “to end Obama’s amnesty.” By that he

Harry Enten, an analyst with FiveThirtyEight, a political website owned by ESPN, claims he can prove with charts and graphs that Republican Florida Governor Rick Scott and his Democratic challenger Charlie Crist are the most unpopular pair to face each other in a governor’s race for at least the last decade. Without even consulting the charts and graphs, few Floridians outside of Scott’s or Crist’s camp would argue with Enten. Both candidates’ favorable/unfavorable ratings are below water. Scott’s ratings have been in the unfavorable range for almost the entire three-years-plus he has been governor. He has mostly done what he ran

An autopsy conducted on Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old fatally shot by Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson last Saturday, shows that Brown was shot at least six times, twice in the head and all in the front of the body. The New York Times reported the results of a private autopsy conducted by Dr. Michael Baden, who was hired by the Brown family. Baden conducted the autopsy on Sunday, according to the Times. One bullet entered the top of Brown’s skull. Four struck him in the right arm. All bullets hit Brown in the front of the body, according to

They say a prosecutor could get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, and this always seemed like hyperbole, until Friday night a Texas grand jury announced an indictment of governor Rick Perry. The “crime” for which Perry faces a sentence of 5 to 99 years in prison is vetoing funding for a state agency. The conventions of reporting — which treat the fact of an indictment as the primary news, and its merit as a secondary analytic question — make it difficult for people reading the news to grasp just how farfetched this indictment is.

The Obama administration has done little to calm racial tensions as they spread from Manhattan to St. Louis to Los Angeles. Quite the opposite, some top officials have fueled African-American fears of racism with false accusations of anti-black discrimination. Attorney General Eric Holder’s race-baiting is no secret. Justice Department documents show the nation’s top cop gave thousands of dollars to help the Rev. Al Sharpton organize marches protesting the death of Trayvon Martin. Now he’s sent the civil-rights unit to St. Louis to do the same thing in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. Less known, however, is the role of Labor Secretary Thomas

Violence continues in Ferguson, Missouri. It began on August 9 with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager cut down by a white cop’s bullets. Peaceful demonstrations turned into looting, the local police went in with rubber bullets and tear gas, all hell broke loose and, eventually, Missouri’s governor pulled out the local police and sent in state officers instead. But the rioting only paused; it didn’t cease.

Officers are seeking the person who shot the critically-wounded victim after the 12am-5am curfew took hold in Ferguson, Missouri - eight days after Michael Brown, 18, was shot dead by police. Police said their strong response came after people broke into a restaurant and took position on the roof overlooking officers, while another man flashed a handgun as armoured vehicles approached.

Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered a federal autopsy on the body of Michael Brown. Department of Justice spokesman Brian Fallon said it will be performed at the request of Brown´s family in addition to the one conducted by the state. Fallon also said that the Department of Justice will still take into account the state-performed autopsy during its civil rights investigation of Brown´s murder. Last week, Holder announced the federal probe following protests and outrage over the murder of the unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. Since the murder, the town has erupted into multiple police clashes. Despite a
