If you have not heard, the National Republican Senatorial Committee has attacked nationally syndicated conservative radio host and best selling author Mark Levin.
They publicly attacked Mark Levin because the Jim DeMint created Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) gives out copies of Mark Levins book. The NRSC alleges a quid pro quo relationship to help drive up the popularity of Levins book. The book was published in 2009 before SCF was a significant force and had already become a best seller before SCF gave out copies.
This attack follows the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) attacking conservative businesses and threatening to drive them from business because they happen to do business with the Senate Conservatives Fund. The NRSCs tactics mirror the harassment the IRS inflicted on tea party groups.
Those attacks came after US News and World Report columnist Brian Walsh leveled attacks on conservative groups, including the Senate Conservatives Fund, for daring to hold Republicans accountable for their promises. Subsequent to that column US News and World Report had to admit Brian Walsh is on the payroll of the NRSC.
The Chamber of Commerce, the Main Street Partnership, the NRSC, and lobbyists galore in Washington are coordinating attacks on conservative groups and conservative candidates for daring to champion limited government and hold the GOP accountable for breaking promises. These groups have no interest in supporting limited government and free markets. They support their government and their markets with your tax dollars.
The GOP in Washington has decided that the problem is not government, but Democrats in charge of government. And theyve decided to punish any conservative who points out government itself is the problem. Conservative groups are attacked by Republican leaders. Conservative candidates are attacked by Republican leaders. Conservative talk radio hosts are attacked by Republican leaders.
The single biggest thing you can do to clean up the GOP is to defeat Mitch McConnell in Kentucky by supporting Matt Bevin. The NRSC attacks all came after the Senate Conservatives Fund decided to support Bevin. The attacks on Mark Levin came after he spoke kindly of Matt Bevin. The attacks on conservative candidates came after Matt Bevin became a credible candidate.
All these attacks came because Mitch McConnell would rather rule in Hell than serve in Heaven. He would rather a Senate GOP minority with himself in charge than a Senate GOP majority with himself retired.
You beat Mitch McConnell, you will find many Republican squishes with squishy soiled underwear. Until you beat Mitch McConnell, these guys in Washington will neither respect you nor fear you.
But when you beat the sitting Senate Republican Leader in a primary, suddenly Washington knows the grassroots are in charge. The attacks on conservatives will only get worse until conservatives beat Mitch McConnell.
And we have our chance with Matt Bevin.
Truer words have never been spoken/written. While the House is a definite must to control, the Senate drives the national policy issues - most of them start there, even the budget issues which are the Constitutional purview of the House. To have such a lilly-livered, backstabbing RINO in charge of Senate Republicans is inexcusable.
The GOPe showing their true colors. The coordinated attack with the DNC on Conservatives says all we need to know.
An electoral drubbing of GOP-e in 2014 is the lynch pin to what happens in 2016.
I agree. The GOPe leadership, particularly, has to be decimated. If it is not, that same leadership will keep equivocating, lying, dissembling and plotting to stop Conservatives to keep themselves in power, even if it is second-tier power.
Oh, those wild and crazy Whigs!
What the **** happened to my country.
Capital Hill has become millionaires country club where deals are made and fortunes are made.
“We the People” are the “small potatoes” who need to understand our role in keeping them in power to enrich their benefactors.
The Left does the same but they can walk and chew gum at the same time.
Who’s seriously doing anything about the IRS attacks on Tea Party groups?
Does the GOP-e like reliable conservatives hamstrung, unable to coordinate and run candidates they believe will represent their interests and the interests of their children?
The 80 or so solid, TEA Party conservatives in the House and Senate need to march to the offices of Boehner and McConnell, and inform them loudly and clearly, this shit stops NOW, or expect the formation of a new political party to the right of the current GOP.
