Vanity: Exactly who is the "Republican Majority Campaign"?
self | 02-18-2013 | Raven6

Posted on 02/18/2013 7:12:54 AM PST by Raven6

I apologize if this has been discussed before... I searched and found nothing.

We've been getting a lot of phone calls as of late from a group called "Republican Majority Campaign" soliciting contributions. Knowing nothing about them, I've tried to politely decline. The representatives with whom I've spoken have been more than a little bit pushy. I've asked them to send me information via the mail but they are not willing to do so without a small contribution. That doesn't cut it for me...

I know that Carl Rove's group is called "American Crossroads". I personally wouldn't send them a dime, as Rove is not conservative. But I am curious as to the leanings of the "Republican Majority Campaign". Their website reveals very little. A web search reveals only (what I consider to be) minor contributions considering what appears to be large sums raised.

Anyone have any more information?

The GOPe was given a majority in the House.

What have they done with that gift that would encourage any one to give them more power?

Be wary of any ‘organization’ requesting donations. Many times, their biggest recipient of their funds are themselves.

I wouldn’t send them any money either — not much info on their website. Any organization can call themselves anything.

That’s what I’m thinking as well, Tom... Just a bit curious is all.

That's Rove's new group of wealthy liberal RINOs; the ones who are going to obliterate the TEA Party, wipe conservatives from the political landscape; and mud-wrestle naked with their fellow commies in the Democrat Party.

And they need your money to gitter done, of course.

Mark Levin, on his radio show, has been discussing the “Republican Majority Campaign” and Karl Rove since their declaration of war on conservatives a few weeks ago.

WAS IT ROVE’S INCOMPETENCE ...OR IS HE A JUDAS GOAT ?

To borrow from Rush Limbaugh for those living Riolinda a Judas goat is used to lead US sheeples to the slaughter pen . The Republicans were given a chance to use a wedge issue to split up the democratic party and blew it.

Besides being unable to equate Obama’s socialist schemes particularly his energy policy running up the costs on everything and still is thus forcing those with limited incomes to go on the dole. BTW the angle here is to blame the system not the folks using it. Because they have to. But it’s a signature of Rove’s past performances when with Bush. The demo-coms used it because it fell into “heartless Republicans”.
Blaming Obama and explaining that policy in terms those proverbial LIV’s could understand wasn’t even considered. Refusing to attack Obama was based on MSM polling showing his popularity suggesting an intellectual inability by Rove and the GOPES to rejoin any racial charge.

....Does anybody remember what the Democrats did at their convention ??? First they eliminated any mention of the word GOD...and when they thought twice about doing that they reintroduced the resolution what happened ? They booed God....That resolution was rammed through just like the Affordable Health Care Act ...

Was that fact used in any of the material Rove’s RINOS spewed forth during the 2012 Romney or US senate races his group of GOPES (Government Ofthe People Elite Snobs) used on their hit list ? I like using that acronym because it rhymes with dopes.

Noooo ! They could have used that episode to point out how far to the left the democrat party has hyphenated into; Demo-Coms ...Instead well we don’t like Aikin ...He said what ? OMG OMG he’s unqualified ...If there was a chance he would have been burned at the stake by Rove’s RINOS and the so called “conservative “ talkies spouting Rove’s tripe.

Why ? What drove this ? They were responding to the miss-direction driven by Obama’s instuments of oppression Mainline Socialist Media (MSM).The Aikin or O’Donnells response to a set up phoney issue had nothing to do with any thing that would ever occur in any legislation that would pass their respective desks had they been elected.

THE RESPONSE YOU DIDN’T HEAR WAS THIS “”While at their convention the Democrats were busy denying God . Aikin believes in something like the ten commandments. Including Thou shalt not steal and doesn’t believe that getting elected to office gives you a license to do steal ... Which his opponent seems to have done rather well since being in office. The same thing with Mourdock,O’Donnnell, etc,etc, etc.

That presentation could have been expanded to Reid, Pelosi, and the slew of Demo-Com pigs at the trough. Expanding their personal wealth at the expense of the US taxpayers.

Now his bunch seems to be saying if you hold a religious view don’t run for office... We’re gonna save the Republican party ....to be finished off by Obama and the hypenated democrats..
Roves RINOS wrong for America and wrong for the Republican party...

Donor Beware: A Guide To The Scammiest Conservative Direct Mail Shops
Republican Majority Campaign: This California-based PAC asked potential donors to help support its fax campaigns to members of Congress to kill health care reform.
Apparently, up to $144 per donor is required to get these faxes out. Donations sent to a separate outfit run by Republican Majority Campaign Executive Director (and Birthermercial star) Gary Kreep support mass faxes demanding President Obama’s birth certificate. Whatever it may cost to send a fax these days, the Republican Majority Campaign spent almost none of its resources on political spending. Over $1 million has gone to paying an Arizona telemarketing firm, and Kreep himself was paid $60,000 in 2009 for “legal services.”


PACS be careful of whom you harass, it might cost more than a Donation

Google is your friend.

Thanks for posting the info from Open Secrets.

According to it, they took in $5.7 Million and contributed to R candidates less than $6,000!!!

Definitely a sham.

Sorry, it’s Rove’s “American Crossroads” and its offshoot “Conservative Victory Fund” that is targeting conservative candidates for exile.

Try the FEC reports and dig through them for info on donations, officers, locations, etc. With some digging you'll find some of the candidates they spent money on. Good luck.

If I’m reading you correctly, this group is either directly connected to Rove or is aligned with him according to Levin. That tells me all I needed to know. I don’t always get to listen to Levin on the way home and must have missed this information. THANKS!!!

In response to several posts: the name of the PAC Rove was associated with during 2012 was American Crossroads. The name of the new PAC just formed is: Conservative Victory Project.

Here are several articles about the "Republican Majority Campaign", none of them reflecting positively on the PAC or on Gary Kreep.

STAY AWAY!

http://www.factcheck.org/2011/10/republican-majority-campaign/

AND they are downright nasty. Most of what they spend pays themselves high salaries and for a phone operation out of Arizona that is an office on the tenth floor of a building. Their main office is in Santa Ana, CA which has no listed telephone number.
The exec is gary kreep, a real piece of work.
They give very little to actual campaigns.

^^^
Same here. And we have been getting an average of a call per week from a number of organizations trying to cash in on conservative anger.

Numerous robo-calls come in with someone asking in a robust and indignant manner if I am tired of the Obama this or that. Have not stayed on long enough, but I assume, Mr. Robo asks me to stand by to speak with someone if I want to defeat whatever Obama evil we are addressing at the time.

I just don’t trust any of them, and I quit giving money to all political organizations. The husband is, I think, slowly seeing the light on this one. He sent the GOP money during the last election. That relatively modest donation was met with at least one mailer per day for weeks. We were trying to estimate how much money they were wasting in paper costs alone. Disgusting, IMO.

I don't give to anybody over the phone. If I donate, it's to either locals parties/pacs/candidates or individual candidates.

National doesn't get one red cent.

I should clarify when I mention “locals parties/pacs/candidates” I’m referring to those I know personally.

Exactly. We were getting so many calls, since the election, that we bought a call blocking phone. It actually blocks entire area codes, too. MUCH quieter around here, now ;)

I often wonder how much money these groups actually make after paying rent, paying for the junk mail, and paying the callers in their boiler room operations.
