BEAT LAMAR and Tea Party Groups Announce Endorsement of Joe Carr for US Senate
Little House on Unaka | September 30, 2013

Posted on 09/30/2013 4:10:48 AM PDT by don-o

Spring Hill, TN—Michael Patrick Leahy, co-founder of BEAT LAMAR, today announced that BEAT LAMAR, a project of the conservative ground game SuperPac the Real Conservatives National Committee, and a coalition of local Tea Party groups across Tennessee have endorsed State Representative Joe Carr for the Republican nomination in the 2014 United Senate race.

“Over the past month Joe Carr has been vetted in five BEAT LAMAR Town Halls across the state of Tennessee—in Nashville, Memphis, Chattanooga, Maryville, and this Saturday in Johnson City,” Leahy said. “Joe Carr has emerged as the unanimous choice among the Tea Party co-sponsors of each of these events—the Nashville Tea Party, the Mid-South Tea Party, the Chattanooga Tea Party, the Blount County Tea Party, the Roane County Tea Party, and the Tri-Cities—as the constitutional conservative candidate we enthusiastically endorse to stand with Ted Cruz and beat Lamar.”

“I am also delighted to note that the Coalition for a Constitutional Senate, an informal coalition of 63 Tea Party and Liberty groups throughout Tennessee, is also issuing a statement of support for Joe Carr today,” Leahy said.

Leahy added that the BEAT LAMAR Town Halls have been so popular that BEAT LAMAR will continue to hold them in cooperation with local Tea Party groups around the state. “Several local Tea Party groups have asked us to continue the BEAT LAMAR Town Halls, and we’ve decided to do that. Our purpose now will be to sign up additional door-to-door volunteers in every one of Tennessee’s 95 counties.”Leahy said.”

According to Leahy, “we already have 650 volunteers in our state-of-the art database, poised to use their IPads, smartphones, and old fashioned paper walking lists to talk with their neighbors on their front doorstep about the importance of this August 2014 Republican Senate primary. Now, we have an even better message: BEAT LAMAR, VOTE FOR JOE CARR.”

Leahy stated that the number of door-to-door volunteers knocking on doors to BEAT LAMAR and VOTE FOR JOE CARR would soon exceed the group’s goal of 1,000.

BEAT LAMAR is a project of the Real Conservatives National Committee, an independent expenditure Super PAC located in Spring Hill, Tennessee, that focuses on the development of a conservative ground game infrastructure. Michael Patrick Leahy and Lorie Medina are its co-founders.

Harry Reid has done us a great favor. If there is a sleeping giant out there, ol’ Prune Face has surely awakened it.

Eagles up!

100% agree Nana. I just stumbled on the betlamar movement and I am not sure how. Their outreach thus far has been less than stellar.

I am letting them know thay MUST do a better job.

beatlamar not betlamar

Although I bet Lamar! woke up this morning very smug and pleased with himself. He has fooled the people so long, he thinks he is all set to stay in DC for his 80th birthday.

_____________________

Obama has found it very easy to advance his narrow ideological agenda of failure-prone Marxism.

4 years after Obama conned his Democrats into passing the Federal takeover of the cash cow of Medical Insurance, the PC, Doormat Republicans are finally timidly suggesting defunding that Federal takeover.

Without the weak, PC, Doormat Republicans Boehner and McConnell being stupidly kept in their respective leadership positions by truly cowardly House and Senate Members, Obama Medical Insurance “Care” Takeover would have been defunded long ago.

The primal yearning of the 47 % who pay no personal Federal Income tax is to belong to a tribe where all of their choices are dictated to them by their arrogant tribal leader.

This a common trait of those who have low self-esteem.

In that sense, Obamanation is truly a cult: low self-esteem people believing everything their cult leader tells them, no questions asked.

Freedom is defined in the dictionary as follows:
1.) Exemption or liberation from slavery or imprisonment.
3.) Liberty of choice or action.

Most of the 47 % riding in the “free” wagon seek out slavery, and lack of personal choice.

They thus feel safe, and secure in the knowledge that “this is as bad as it is going to get.”

Liberty is defined in the dictionary as follows:
1.) The state of being exempt from the domination of others or from restricting circumstances; freedom.
5.) The power of voluntary choice: freedom from necessity.
6.) Individual Liberty: Freedom from restraint in the performance of rights outside of government control.

Most people who are getting a free ride in the wagon where 47 % pay no personal Federal Income Taxes, are terrified of making a voluntary choice.

The 47 % would prefer that they be under government control where the choices are made for him.

All of this societal wussiness has made it very easy for B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, to advance his narrow ideological agenda of European-style, failure-prone, Marxism in spite of PC, Doormat Republican token “opposition.”

BTW, unlike taxes, Federal Obama ‘care’ Insurance charges can be increased EVERY YEAR to whatever % the present and future arrogant leaders of Obamanation wants.

BTW, BTW, the free-loading 47 % will always vote for the Candidate for POTUS approved by Obamanation.
_________________________________

The question to be asked is: “If it is in the Nation’s best interest to shut down the Government, then why are there only TWO Federal Politicians, Obama and Reid, loudly advocating shutting down the US Federal Government?

Obama has MANY reasons to shutdown the Federal Government such as:

1.) A headline grabbing story that will distract attention from the Impeachable scandals of:

Benghazi Massacre Dereliction of Duty by Obama as CIC;
Obamacare Insurance managed by the corrupt IRS;
IRS harassment of political opponents of Obama;
Use of the NSA by Obama to spy on everybody in the USA;
etc, etc.

2.) The use of fear of a shutdown might help to protect defunding and eventual abolishment of Obama’s narrowly focused ideological agenda of an European-style, failure-prone, Marxist, monopoly of the US Medical Insurance Industry.

3.) Spreading fear and blame might also preserve Obama’s power to increase Obamacare Insurance premiums on an annual basis.

*This would be highly advantageous to Obama as the increase in mandatory insurance premiums would not be a tax, as the “unexpected market conditions” would be given as the reason for the increase.

*Also there would be no need to ask for the “Advice and Consent” of Congress, as the IRS would be in complete control of all income and medical records.

4.) The last reason is the most important for Obama, personally: America would at last no longer be a Nation where the Liberty to choose one’s own family destiny could ever exist again.

As for Reid, the best guess I have is that he wants a Government Monopoly of the Medical Insurance Industry. Well, to be fair, Reid calls for a “single payer” system.

My suspician is that multi-millionaire Reid, nearing Federal retirement, owns a lot of stock in some companies that are tied to a “single payer” system.

Maybe the NSA, or the IRS can find out for us?

I’m going to ask my US Senator from TEXAS, The Esteemed Senator John “To Hell with my voters” Cornyn to check on this for me - - - .

Don't forget Matt Bevin in Kentucky...running against Midge McConnell.

Senate Conservatives sent out a survey asking if they should endorse Matt. Hopefully, they will and hopefully they'll soon support Bright in SC and Carr in TN.

Thanks Jane! I didn’t know about Matt Bevin. Will be looking for an interview of him. Beck had Bright in SC on during one of his morning radio shows, and he sounded like another Cruz, IMO. Very knowledgeable, unshakeable, and articulate.
