Skip to comments.Coup Against Heritage Foundation Delivers Major Blow to Conservatism
Posted on 05/02/2017 10:36:08 PM PDT by TBP
I am told that there is a coup underway by the GOP coupled with the Bannon/Brietbart alliance to take control of the Heritage Foundation.
Is it the Mercer family that is behind this?
The GOP didnt like the conservative principles that Jim DeMint stood for. They claim that Jim focused on the action side and the white paper side suffered.
We dont need any more think tanks. The constitutional advocates need more DO Tanks!!!!!
The word is that Bannon will replace DeMint at Heritage.
All of that money and power in the hands of Steve Bannon is enough to make our founders weep.
Every tea party member who can actually remember a time when our only constitutional support in D.C. came from Senator Jim DeMint should be tweeting, Facebook-posting and calling the Heritage Foundation to demand they leave Jim DeMint in place.
MONEY DOESNT TALK, IT SCREAMS. But perhaps with enough exposure and heat, the people will win.
Please make a note that the conservative movement is being destroyed from the inside as well as by the left.
DeMint helped Trump get elected. But it isnt enough. He and Heritage stood against TrumpCare. When we rallied around the Freedom Caucus, the other hand was busy taking care of DeMint.
We are just beginning to pay for the fact that we refused to recognize the Trojan horse of the alt right. Just as the DNC thought they would use the Marxist left and lost control, the GOP is using the alt right, thinking that they will hold onto control.
And the band played on
Couple that with the fact that so many voters think the right and Trump are winning the war against the media and we will simply fade away and slip into darkness.
Has anyone noticed Fox has been cleaned out? With news that Bill Shine has become the latest head to roll he was the only one left with any institutional knowledge of what Fox really is and who and what it was supposed to serve.
Who will be next at Fox? When they are finished with Fox, what other voices will be silenced?
Then what? What organization will be lost or coopted?
With a loss of Fox News AND the Heritage Foundation becoming a front for a progressive, populist and nationalist movement, the constitution may never stand a chance.
Pray for peace, pray for protection and pray that the American Covenant continues to stand.
DeMint resigned after this was published, but the point that is being made about the future of Heritage and the conservative, constitutionalist movement is 100 percent on target.
DeMint should challenge Lindsey Graham for his seat next year.
Totally true story: I was listening to Glenn Beck today comma and then he said “PLEASE PLEASE do not revert to violence. And PLEASE subscribe to The Blaze.”
Heritage had a great research department, a class act. DeMint was a good guy. We still have all those people.
Remember, as Sundance says, it’s just a shuffle of positions and same pay difference, with the same faces. These people never really go away, right? They just land somewhere else and carry on.
As for Bannon. I’m fine with Bannon and a think tank, and as long as the thinkers there and the funders and the staff don’t get in TRUMP’s way, then they can think all night and day long. :)
LOL! For real?? Violence over what, I wonder?
Glenn Beck? WTF? Anyone listening to this idiot about anything isn’t playing with a full deck.
Is Beck still alive
Totally true! He was predicting the conservative we’re going to get violent in response to the violent liberal protesters. He can talk so sincere, and then go immediately into promoting one of his services in the exact same sincere voice.
Glenn Beck wouldn’t know conservatism if it bit him in the ass.
Yes conservatives, let the communists kill you and beat you up. Don’t respond because, well the people will begin to see who is wrong and turn against them....”Glenn Beck” Uh, mista Beck, you turncoat ^*%*&(*&)(*&, the media won’t show what is the equivalent of blacks in the 1960’s being beaten and firehosed to the public. What do we do now? Shall we hand them a knife and expose our underbelly?
Think tanks are for the party NOT IN POWER.
How in the world did it come to pass that you’re still listening to Glenn Beck?
Good idea. But I bet he won’t do it.
He posted a photo of the copy.
He’s a collector of historical artifacts. He and David Barton are opening a museum by the Mercury complex. He likely picked up the wrong one. (He has more than one, interestingly enough.)
