    Conservative activist organization FreedomWorks released a statement expressing support for the Freedom Caucus’s opposition to Speaker Ryan’s “Obamacare-lite” bill. FreedomWorks issued their statement in the wake of the Freedom Caucus’s press conference with Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Mike Lee (R-UT) opposing the speaker’s plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. Jason Pye, director of public policy and legislative affairs for FreedomWorks, said: {..snip..}
  • Mark Levin finally admits Ben Sasse is a RINO “fraud”

    Duh… I’m sick and tired of pretend conservatives defending John Boehner and Mitch McConnell, when they’re selling this country down the river! (SNIP) In 2009, Ben Sasse heralded Medicare Part D as “the answer to Health Reform”. In 2010, Sasse was a “senior advisor” to Leavitt Partners– a consulting firm that worked to implement Obamacare. In a March, Sasse would not rule out apocalyptic, thermonuclear war with Russia over the annexation of Crimea. Sasse’s benefactor is none other than Mike Simmonds– the fast food pioneer who has declared that he would only support candidates that endorsed “complete amnesty”.

    Conservative talk radio host Mark Levin said that Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump was similar to an establishment Republican compromiser after the real estate mogul pledged earlier to work closely with Democratic leaders in Congress. "You might as well vote for Jeb Bush," Levin said. "I bet he would get along with Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer. Lindsey Graham gets along with them great. Marco Rubio got along with them great." In an interview Tuesday on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Trump said, "I've always had a good relationship with Nancy Pelosi. I've never had a problem. Reid will...

    You can always tell when the Washington statists really fear something. They become like jackals on a carcass in the savannah, tearing and ripping at it until there is nothing left. Anything or anyone that might upset the symbiosis between the political hacks and their corporate cronies must be eliminated. After all, they worked very hard to put this self-serving, freedom killing mechanism in place. No idea or outsider can be allowed to interfere with the unending orgy of money and power. There really is just one party in Washington today. Yes, we still have Democrats and Republicans, but when...

    On the heels of Texas Republican Louie Gohmert’s announcement Sunday that he’s officially a candidate for Speaker of the House, conservative activists have launched a website aimed at getting present Speaker John Boehner voted out. The FreedomWorks website explains its position under the title “Speaker Boehner Has Got to Go”: It’s time for a new Speaker of the House. John Boehner has been Speaker of the House for four years. And in those four years he has betrayed conservatives and cut backroom deals to give President Obama exactly what he wants. We can’t accept a Speaker of the House who...

    I'm told that the public is "angry" at today's politicians. Eighty-two percent disapprove of the job Congress is doing. So will Tuesday's election bring a big shakeup? No. Congressional reelection rates never drop below 85 percent. The last big "wave" election was 1994, when Democrats lost control of both houses. The media called it a "revolution," and the late Peter Jennings from ABC likened Americans to 2-year-olds throwing a tantrum. Even that year, the reelection rate was 90 percent.Matt Kibbe of the group FreedomWorks and Hadley Heath Manning of Independent Women's Forum came on my show to say they don't...
  • Tea party pulls out a modest victory in Nebraska Senate primary (27 points!)

    The victory notched by tea party Republicans in the Nebraska Senate race was modest, but they'll take it in a season that has yielded few bright spots so far. Ben Sasse won the GOP nomination for the seat being vacated by Sen. Mike Johanns, R-Neb. Sasse was the closest thing to a tea party candidate in the three-man race, largely because he feuded last fall with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, the epitome of establishment Republicanism. But Sasse is hardly the out-of-right-field firebrand that some tea partyers cherish. A college president with degrees from Harvard and Yale, he worked for...

    Glenn Beck worked the crowd like a preacher at a rally this month in Louisville, Ky., declaring that God had responded to conservatives’ prayers by sending a slate of tea party candidates to wrest control of the Republican Party from Mitch McConnell. But there was a more earthly benefit to the arrangement that brought Beck to the rally. It was organized by the tea party nonprofit group FreedomWorks, which had endorsed the candidates — and which has paid more than $6 million in recent years to have Beck promote the group, its initiatives and events. ..............

    GOP Senate candidate Ben Sasse announced Thursday he raised more than $850,000 in the first quarter of the year, significantly more than his main challenger in the race. Sasse made the announcement on Twitter. Another Republican candidate, Shane Osborn, announced earlier this week he raised more than $550,000 in the first quarter of this year. Osborn is a former state Treasurer and Navy pilot and his main rival is Sasse, who serves as president of Midland University. Last week, conservative group FreedomWorks withdrew its endorsement of Osborn and said it would support Sasse instead. They are among four GOP contenders...

    In a major blow to former Republican state Treasurer Shane Osborn’s candidacy for Nebraska Senate, national conservative group FreedomWorks is withdrawing its endorsement and backing his main primary rival, Midland University President Ben Sasse, instead. At issue, FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe said in a statement, is the unspoken support Osborn is believed to have from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). “Both Osborn and Sasse are great people, and this was not a decision taken lightly. The question at the heart of this decision is, who would caucus with the Freedom Caucus, and who would fall in line with the...

    WASHINGTON, D. C. - A controversial Super PAC headed by former GOP congressman Steve LaTourette has spent $44,000 on mailings against the Tea Party Republican who is challenging his handpicked successor in Congress, Russell Township GOP congressman Dave Joyce. Federal Election Commission records show the Defending Main Street SuperPAC that LaTourette launched to support centrist Republicans against Tea Party challengers bought mailers against Bainbridge Township state legislator Matt Lynch on March 18. FEC records show the group also spent $200,000 in March on door hangers to support the re-election of Idaho Republican Rep. Mike Simpson, who chairs House Energy and...

    A duo of conservative candidates will descend on Kentucky to appear with Sen. Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) challenger, Matt Bevin, just two months out from his primary. Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel, Sen. Thad Cochran’s (R-Miss.) primary challenger, and California Republican House candidate Igor Birman, running for Rep. Ami Bera’s (D) seat, will both appear at FreePAC Kentucky, a conservative event FreedomWorks is hosting in Louisville on April 5. The group has endorsed all three candidates. Glenn Beck and FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe will also appear at the event. According to a release, it will bring together grassroots activists from across...

[video at link] "I told you at the very beginning what this administration tries to do you and what the progressives on the right, let me tell you something, Mitch McConnell is as big of a danger to this country as Barack Obama is.

    On Friday, former Alaska Gov. Palin went to Nebraska and endorsed businessman Pete Ricketts for governor in the state in which her endorsement has proven to be the gold standard. Palin joined Kay Orr, Nebraska's former Republican governor whom Palin called the "original Mama Grizzly," to endorse to endorse Ricketts, whom Palin called the clear principled commonsense conservative choice in this race whose positions are clear: "he opposes amnesty and taxpayer funded benefits for illegal immigrants in any form and always has." Palin said the "alternative is woeful dependency on an inevitable sinking ship I call 'Liberal Lunacy.'" Palin has...

    This stinks to Heaven ... Please explain the Flip-flop in light of Matt Kilbbe’s previous words ... FreedomWorks: Sasse “Supports The Basic Principles Of Obamacare”: “But there’s a problem. Mr. Sasse, a wealthy former business management consultant with a long list of health industry clients, is positioning himself as a staunchly ‘anti-Obamacare’ candidate; but that doesn’t square with his past record, a careful review of which reveals four things: 1. He supports the basic principles of Obamacare, if not all the details. 2. While Obamacare was being drafted, he offered its authors advice on how to improve it. 3. After...

    FreedomWorks is preparing to roll out its 2014 endorsements in the coming weeks, but the group’s president believes some GOP incumbents are already headed for defeat in their primary elections. In a wide-ranging interview Wednesday with The Hill, the conservative group’s president, Matt Kibbe said he believes one of the biggest to fall will be former National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (Texas). The group has already endorsed his primary challenger, Katrina Pierson. The grassroots group could also have its eye on the Senate’s top GOP leader. Kibbe indicated the group is looking closely at backing Matt Bevin, Sen....

    We are all aware of Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. In it he lays the groundwork for communist community organizers to gradually infiltrate the basic societal structures of our nation and convert our country into first, a ‘soft tyranny’ and then, when socialized medicine, amnesty and gun control are complete, a full blown communist state. We are not going to let that happen. It’s time for all Americans to confront this attack on our liberty and fight back. We haven’t much time as they are well organized, determined and currently have the power bases of the White House, the Senate, MSM...
