War: NRSC blacklists ad firm because it helps Senate Conservatives Fund target Republicans
Hot Air ^ | NOVEMBER 1, 2013 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Posted on 11/02/2013 9:41:18 AM PDT by FreeReign

(Excerpt)

In a warning shot to outside conservative groups, the National Republican Senatorial Committee this week informed a prominent Republican advertising firm that it would not receive any contracts with the campaign committee because of its work with a group that targets incumbent Senate Republicans.

Even more striking, a senior official at the committee called individual Republican Senate campaigns and other party organizations this week and urged them not to hire the firm, Jamestown Associates, in an effort to punish them for working for the Senate Conservatives Fund, a group founded by Jim DeMint, then a South Carolina senator, that is trying to unseat Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, and some other incumbents up for re-election next year whom it finds insufficiently conservative…

As a lifelong Republican this makes it exceptionally easy for me. Anyone the NRSC feels worthy of blackballing MUST obviously be the ones I need to support and vote for.

The NRSC is big business - - they want only “go along, get along” GOPe senators.
You know - - the kind who will “get something done”.

I thought it was the people who decided who should represent them, not the representatives. The base has to coalesce to show these rinos who is in charge. At the same time, with both the GOPe, and the Democrats attacking the “Tea Party,” we have to be careful of allowing them to create an actual group identity, and to make it more caustic than the Republican brand.

The Tea-party has received a plethora of advice that forming a third party is deleterious to conservative goals, so the Tea-party has worked as a part of the GOP. Their intra-party rivals, the GOPe it seems are now forcing a third party alternative to the GOPe. I have not seen a poll, but I suspect that the GOPe has the lowest approval rating of any political group in Washington PC, below the media maligned tea-party and the media venerated democrats of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. The GOPe if it continues this tactic will be on the endangered species list soon, but not soon enough for me.

In part I blame the NRCC for Obamacare. In 08 they stripped several conservative congressmen of funding in the final weeks of the campaign. They called them “lost causes” Michele Bachmann was one of them. My congressman lost by a whopping 2% of the vote, Virgil Goode was another who would have voted against Obamacare.

We sent my congressman back to DC in 2010 against the wishes of the GOP and their hand picked carpetbagger.

So hordes of moderate, undecided, illegal alien, and independent voters are going to suddenly man the phones, knock on doors, and GOTV for RINO incumbents? Just who is going to support the Republican Party once conservatives leave? Beltway and corporate lobbysists? Crony capitalists? Their numbers pale in comparison to the conservative base.

For all intent and purposes now, the Republican Party is DEAD. They are to the political system what Detroit is to being called a city. Something in name only, hallowed out, rotted, and gutted.

Yup.

I would put it this way.

The GOP elites aren't trying to change the country for the better. Instead they are trying to maintain their comfortable positions as the token "opposition" to the Democrats.

The Republicans controlling the party do not care about winning. They care about having enough elected officials to keep their status as the minority party, and all of the financial reward and status it gives them. They'd rather lose to the dems than cede power in the party to conservatives. They think if they fight back hard, they'll still have our votes in elections.

I'm past that. I'd rather have a Democrat whose honest about their flakey ideas in power than these RINOs backstabbing us from within. The globalist pro-corporate power mongers have never been a majority. They assume we'll vote for them as the "lesser of two evils".

The thing is, there's nothing "lesser" about their evil. Look at Obamacare and the horrible moves Obama made in his poorly managed shut down schemes. Ted Cruz had Obama beat. Now, it's obvious to all that the RINOs and their insurance company and other paymasters want Obamacare; they've found a way to profit from it and get deals to support it.

They're still fighting us, for heaven's sake. How many people would come over to constitutional conservative values if those who hold them weren't being backstabbed from within? It's the RINOs, and them alone, costing us elections.

Let's think about this. We've got Obiecare unless we get the Senate. But even then there's little chance to defeat an override from BO. 55-45 R's won't do the trick.

So, wait 'til '16, or put the Pres. and dems in survival mode with public and voter discontent so overwhelming they agree to pull it down....or make 2010 look like a warm up.

Would a Republican Senate of a 52 or 53 seat majority to 47 or 48, comprised of many of these same RINOs , be any better than one with fewer Republican senators, but with more bull dogs aka Ted Cruz.

I'll go with the bulldogs., no matter the number. Although, speaking of McConnell, I'm generally pleased with him. Boehner is more of a problem, imho.

“They really have a death wish. Who do they expect to vote for THEIR candidates without OUR support? “

They really don’t care. They can get lucrative lobbyist jobs or go back to their law firms if they lose elections.

The scorched earth policy they follow should tell you all you need to know about the GOPe. They are left leaning corporatists shilling for amnesty and anything else that will help their benefactors.

The rest is just window dressing at election time such as bogus “flag burning” legislation or any red meat to fire up the base.

Notice that there is NEVER a right time to fight for anything against the left in DC.

The middle class need not apply.

What we’re up against is the crony capitalists behind the GOPe. They’re the recipients of billions and billions of dollars. They’re not going to walk away from all that loot without a fight. We’re up against a lot of vested interests at the state and local level as well. We need wise, state by state strategies that will involve compromise and coopting these “allies” into our camp for their money and clout.

We’re not going to right the ship in a single election cycle, but we can entrench the right guys in the right places. Eventually, we’ll have to learn how to move legislation with the help of Dems and RINOs.

Yes, lets nominate Joe Miller for US Senate.

http://articles.latimes.com/2013/jan/14/nation/la-na-nn-fbi-militia-fulton-politics-20130114

from the LA Times

SEATTLE — Now that the mole who helped bring down the leadership of the Alaska Peacemaker Militia has talked publicly, the big question on some minds in Alaska is: Why was federal FBI informant William Fulton involved in political campaigns?

The controversy has erupted over the past few days, as it emerged that Fulton, an Anchorage military surplus store owner who helped gather evidence against militia leader Schaeffer Cox, had helped manage the unsuccessful campaign of right-wing former radio host Eddie Burke for lieutenant governor in 2010. He also provided a controversial security detail for U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller that year — all while penetrating Alaska’s far-right fringes as part of the Cox investigation.

The point being, Joe won the Primary against Lisa, who was then finessed into capturing the AK RAT vote after they re-ran her as Third-party. With *extremely* fraudulent ballot-casting help for them, you didn’t even have to know her name, just a few letters of it, which the poll workers then transcribed into a vote for her.

Yeah, Joe Miller would have been a great addition to the republican party.

“Fulton told jurors he first met Cox at the 2008 state Republican convention. He and Cox were introduced by Fairbanks lawyer Joe Miller and Sarah Palin aide Frank Bailey. That year, Miller had tried unsuccessfully to oust party chairman Randy Ruedrich, saying the party was hobbled by corruption during his tenure. Palin also supported a change in party leadership...

Cox, Barney, 37, and Vernon, 56, are charged with conspiracy to murder federal agents and with violating federal weapons laws for owning or attempting to purchase a machine gun, silencers, hand grenades and other arms.
