Skip to comments.Chamber of Commerce seeks to dominate Republican politics
Posted on 07/24/2014 5:19:05 AM PDT by cotton1706
The United States Chamber of Commerce has been traditionally viewed as the lobbyists in Washington for Big Business. Now they are increasing getting involved in politics, taking sides on behalf of establishment-supported Republican candidates, and using their extensive financial resources to win most of their battles. In the battle between Senator Thad Cochran and Chris McDaniel for the Republican nomination for senate in Mississippi, after Cochran has failed to get 50 percent to avoid a runoff, and the Karl Rove-backed American Crossroads had announced it was pulling out of the race after supporting Cochran, the Chambers of Commerce maintained it's strong support for Cochran.
A conservative candidates supported by TEA party groups and a variety of free market-oriented groups like The Club for Growth and Freedomworks challenge more progressive establishment Republicans, the Chamber of Commerce has increasingly become more involved in the political process, siding with and supporting the Republican candidates associated with the Republican establishment, the candidates many conservative activists refer to as Republicans In Name Only or RINOs.

The US Chamber of Crony Fascists, the RINO cabal.
What can we patriots DO to persuade the Chamber to step away from the “Road to Serfdom”?
Do we need to join our local Chambers and work to take control away from the “Greedy Ones”?
The Chamber no longer is supportive of American interests.
Bring back businesses to America, and hire Americans.
Who is going to stand up for America?
Fock the Chamber of Commies and their ilk.
Then the GOP will become a tiny, irrelevant party under assault by both the Tea Party (who by that point will thoroughly hate their guts), and the Dems, for whom they will make the perfect foil as the party of Grrrrrrreeeedy Big Business and nothing else.
IMO - Once when the Chamber worked for main street business it did tremendous good. But there is more money to be made focusing on Wall Street, so the Chamber put main street on the back burner and went on a full court press supporting Wall Street and have been more than disappointing. Shame on them.
I remember back in the day, the Jaycees (Junior Chamber of Commerce) were big players in the events of communities across the fruited plain. Are they still around? Haven't heard them mentioned in many moons.
I hope they're not contaminated like the C of C. with its reckless and un-American forays into high-pressure lobbying and the amnesty issue.
I think what needs to happen is people start picketing businesses and publicly expose those that support the Chamber of Cronies. I doubt to many retail businesses would like seeing people advertising their support to an Organization that is hell bent on flooding this country with parasites feasting off social services and flooding the low skill labor market.
The Chamber contributed to the Mississippi fiasco. I believe they will be at least embarrassed by the time this is resolved.
And not buy their products and tell them why.
Coca-Cola is one of the high profile companies that signed the letter to Congress pushing for amnesty.
We only need to target one company to get the other CoC members to notice. Its the members that need to tell the CoC to knock it off.
Amnesty Cola needs to sit on the shelf gathering dust.
