  • Nebraska battle complicates GOP effort to retake Senate

    The Senate Republican primary in Nebraska has turned into a proxy war between conservatives and establishment Republicans that could complicate efforts to wrest control of the Senate from Democrats. Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), a leading voice for Tea Party conservatives in Washington, has made an aggressive bid to defeat Jon Bruning, the front-runner in the primary, because of lingering doubts about his commitment to conservative principles. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Some Republicans question whether DeMint’s strenuous intervention will do anything more than alienate a likely future colleague. “There’s no question he’s the front-runner,” said David Kramer, a former Nebraska Republican Party chairman who...

    I join commonsense conservatives in endorsing Richard Mourdock to be the next Senator from Indiana. Conservatives of all stripes are uniting behind Richard Mourdock. It’s not just Indiana that benefits from sending the right Senator to serve for the right reasons; the nation as a whole benefits, and that is one reason why the eyes of so many around the nation are focused on the Indiana race.   Indiana deserves a conservative in the Senate who will fight for the Hoosier State, uphold our Constitution, and not just go along to get along with the vested interests of the permanent...

    The Tea Party Express is launching the "Tell the Truth" ad campaign to combat the onslaught of liberal funded attack ads on Gov. Walker! . The public employee unions have pledged to spent $60 million on their RECALL effort to viciously attack Gov. Walker and distort the truth about the success of his governorship.  In fact, they just dropped half a million dollars on TV ads this week alone! . We are fighting back with an ad campaign of our own to get the truth out there about the success that Gov. Walker and his reforms have had in Wisconsin. ...

    Though the tea party wasn’t particularly enthused about Mitt Romney’s presidential candidacy during the primary, one tea party leader who was present at the inception of the movement says the tea party will get behind the former Massachusetts governor going into the general election. “Absolutely, the tea party can and will support Mitt Romney in the general election, and with great energy in the door-to-door ground game,” said Michael Patrick Leahy, co-founder of The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition and author of the recently released book, “Covenant of Liberty: The Ideological Origins of the Tea Party Movement.” “It’s important also to...

    I have to work today and tomorrow so I can't man any of Newt's phone banks, but if anybody can use this letter to forward in e-mails to your lists before tomorrow's primaries, please do so: Mitt Romney supports government-coerced abortion. He personally has made the decision to force people to provide abortions even though they believe it to be murder. Yes, he vetoed Romneycare because it mandated abortion insurance coverage, but in Dec 2005 after his veto was overridden and the Boston Globe printed an article noting that Catholic hospitals would be exempt from providing abortions to rape victims,...

    The Tea Party was born of many moms and dads who saw their childrens’ futures being robbed by an administration who put no constraints on who they will tax, and what they will spend. Parents gasp in exasperation as they watch a culture devoid of values consume the hearts, minds, and lives of their children. The President stands idly by as black so-called “leaders” insight violence based on race alone.  He defends taxpayer funding of Sandra Fluke’s blatant, unrepentant sexual promiscuity. Parents have watched in horror as young habitué “Occupyers” have proven an old adage often attributed to Winston Churchill:...

The part I'm fascinated by starts at 1:06:51; just go to the Timeline scroll and click on the Rubio comment that starts at that point. This is a long Senate hearing on "Trafficking and Narcotics in the Caribbean" broadcast on C-Span, if you've got 35 minutes to kill. The first half is one panel; this 1:06 marker is the second half where a second...

    The Republican Party establishment has withstood the tea-party revolution. The tricorne-hat wearing, Gadsden-flag waving insurgents were nowhere near the Republican National Committee’s annual meeting of state chairman, which wrapped up at a posh resort here Saturday afternoon. Instead, veteran party leaders — who wore business suits even in the 100-degree heat — reigned supreme. The 2012 meeting of the Republican national command shows just how little has actually changed in the Grand Old Party since the tea-party movement helped Republicans capture the U.S. House majority two years ago and announced that they were a powerful force in American politics. While...

    President Bush: 'Colin, Do you know what a burn card is?' Secretary Powell: 'No sir.' President Bush: [chuckling] 'Someday I gotta teach you to play some Texas Hold 'em.' --Oliver Stone's 'W.' By all estimates, Mittwit will fall 70-120 delegates shy of the 1144 needed to secure the Republican nomination for President of the United States on the first ballot in Tampa, Florida. This fact, coupled with the likely scenario of Mittwit being ten points down to Obama in Ohio, North Carolina, and Colorado the first week in August will sound the death knell of his candidacy. The Establishment will...

    A defining aspect of the American tradition is that groups of citizens band together for a wide variety of civic purposes.  They recruit volunteers, raise funds and spend those funds to promote whatever project or cause brings them together. [Snip] We don’t apply a political test to these civic groups – we recognize the fundamental right of Americans to organize and to pool their resources to promote whatever causes they believe in...  [Snip] In order to be recognized as non-profit groups, these organizations must register with the IRS – a purely ministerial function that has, in the past, been applied...

    Right Scoop ^ | April 18th | Mark Levin via Right Scoop
    Levin talks about what he says few have the guts to talk about, and that is how the Senate GOP establishment, McConnell, is trying to minimize conservative Sen. Ron Johnson who has made it clear he isn’t in the Senate to buddy up with the leadership, but rather to represent his constituents and fight for conservatism. And on the other hand, the establishment types like McCain are teaming up with one of the go-along-to-get-along increasingly liberal senators, Dick Lugar, to help him defeat a great conservative he’s running against. So while they claim to be conservative, what they really want...

    GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said Saturday that his cash-strapped campaign machine will march forward into North Carolina next week -- despite reports that stops in that state and elsewhere had been placed on indefinite hold, according to a report by Fox News. Filed federal reports indicated that the Gingrich campaign had $4.3 million in debt and has $1.22 million cash on hand. The campaign raised $1.6 million in March but spent $2.01 million, Fox News reported. Other public records revealed that Gingrich started the month of March with $1.55 million in debt and only $1.54 million in cash reserves....

    WND ^ | April 16, 2012 | Marylou Barry
    Newt’s supporters love him for the exact same reason his detractors hate him: because he is such a fighter. It drives them nuts that he doesn’t throw in the towel, doesn’t slither away from difficult situations and, like a bulldog with a bone, just chomps down harder when the going gets tough. Like a bulldog, he continues to hang on against a much better-financed rival, because he thinks content is more important than suavité, what you are today is more important than mistakes you made 20 years ago and being right is even more important than being president.

    The Tea Party movement is alive in Utah. With representatives from FreedomWorks in the audience, delegates at the Utah Republican Convention managed to force Sen. Orrin Hatch into a June 26 primary. He got 59.2 percent of their votes against Dan Liljenquist, a 38-year-old state senator. Hatch needed 60 percent to avoid the primary. He couldn’t do it. In two rounds of voting, he went from 2,243 votes to 2,313 votes. If he’d gotten 32 more votes, he would have wrapped this up… FreedomWorks and other Tea Party groups now have two Causes to distract them from their failure to...

    The Newt Gingrich campaign found itself in a state of confusion Friday night when reports surfaced that Gingrich would cancel all of his stops in North Carolina next week, fueling suggestions that Gingrich would be suspending his campaign. But the campaign says nothing is happening. Two people close to the Gingrich campaign told ABC News they were contacted and told all of Gingrich’s North Carolina stops had been canceled, although R.C. Hammond, communications director for the campaign, said there was a “communication glitch.” “There was confusion, but we will maintain our North Carolina schedule next week,” Hammond said. One person...

That next time they will be truly appreciated, that next time the husband is going...
