CONFIRMED: Senate Republican Leaders Paid for Attacks Against Conservatives
redstate.com ^ | 7/15/14 | Erick Erickson

Posted on 07/16/2014 5:36:52 AM PDT by cotton1706

I can confirm that the attack ads in Mississippi run by “All Citizens for Mississippi” were funded by Senate Republicans, including Senators Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Rob Portman, Bob Corker, and Roy Blunt. It appears our Senate Republican leaders are willing to risk losing a Senate majority so long as they can get their own re-elected. Yes folks, it is true. I can confirm what we all suspected.

The advertisements attacked Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel and painted conservative Republicans and tea party activists as racists. According to documents filed with the Federal Elections Commission, All Citizens for Mississippi received funding from a Haley Barbour backed group called Mississippi Conservatives.

Mississippi Conservatives, in turn, was funded in part by Sally Bradshaw of the RNC’s Growth and Opportunity Project, former RNC Chairman and Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, the United States Chamber of Commerce, and the political action committees created for Senators Mitch McConnell ($50,000), John Cornyn ($50,000), Rob Portman ($25,000), Bob Corker ($25,000), and Roy Blunt ($5,000).

Interestingly, Sally Bradshaw and Henry Barbour (Haley Barbour’s nephew) worked on the autopsy of the 2012 GOP loss.

The disgusting GOP, creators of ObamaCARE/RomneyCARE
continue their attacks on conservatives.

Team Romney continues support for Obama and Soros
(as they have since 2008).

As we suspected all along. And, to boot, they are not repentant about it. Has Reince Preibus said even one word about it yet? Maybe I need to send another letter, this time asking that he resign.

Just as we all thought. Unless there’s a conservative reason to show up at the polls in VA this fall I’ll be skipping this election for the first time since 1976.

Priebus won't say anything. He's totally in the bag for the Barbours.

************************************************************

BUT... BUT... We Tea Party Conservatives just can’t keep obsessing over such “petty” inner-party politics and wasting the RNC’s precious time! We need to put our principles and hard feelings behind us to support the Republican Establishment’s hand-picked nominees and then we’ll REALLY see results this time!! I mean, this is the ONLY POSSIBLE WAY we win back the Senate and finally wage that long-promised WHALE OF A FIGHT against Obama!! I mean, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Karl Rove, Ann Coulter, and the rest of the GOP Establishment and their apologists all say so, so it MUST be true!!

I just want to fire every single Congressman (and woman) and Senator. Then I want TERM LIMITS. There is just no other way to put a stop to this abuse of power that I can see.
