As so many people, including myself, have been pointing out, it seems that the establishment GOP is busily waging war against their own base.   The Tea Party movement had activated the Conservative base of the party in ways hadn’t been seen since the election of Ronald Reagan.  As such, the party establishment decided that the base must be “put in their place,” so they could return to voting for a “softer form of socialism.”   Karl Rove, know as the “evil emperor,” for his handling of the Bush presidency, was appointed to, or decided to, attack Tea Party oriented candidates all over the country.  He apparently saw the need to take the base of the party, and punish them for their disloyalty.

That apparently prompted a sharp response from the base.   Steve, from America’s Watchtower, has more…

 So now that it has been a full year since Karl Rove declared war on the Tea Party how are his three Super PACs doing? According to this article, not so well for since that time he has seen donations to his pet projects drop by 98%.

As Politico notes, though, “Rove added a third group to the network in 2013, forming the Conservative Victory Project to counterbalance the influence of Tea Party and conservative grassroots forces in GOP primaries.”

Since then, as Breitbart News reported, “Rove’s organization has been so tarnished among the conservative base that candidates fear donors will not contribute to any group associated with him.”

  This is great news indeed for it signals to us the possibility that the average Republican voter is finally waking up to the fact that all the establishment Republicans care about is staying in power and are no longer willing to simply vote for the lesser of two evils.

Absolutely!  Indeed, 2010 happened because Conservatives were no longer willing to vote for “demicans, or republicrats.”  We were, and still are, tired of candidates that talk conservative on the campaign trail, and then act like regressive Democrats once in office.  However, establishment GOP guys like Rove apparently think that the GOP can run candidates without voters.  They are frankly just p***ing on us, and we’re paying attention to that.  I’ve never seen the GOP having more contempt for actual Republicans.

Do they wonder why we call them the “stupid party?”

      So it would seem. But I bet they;’ll be looking to some corporate cronies to make up for the deficiencies.

  • Thanks for the link Matt! I had a comment on my post wondering how much of the drop off was due to the off year election and I think there is a percentage that can account for. But 98% is a huge number and I have to believe much of it has to do with the conservatives having finally had enough.

    • MattRoss

      I think it is telling. I believe I read that the GOP and Conservative causes have far more grassroots contributors. So, when you tick off the base, it has a bigger impact.

    Time for Rino Rove to go the way of all establishment, old boys club, go along to get along, don’t make a wave, trough feeders, and bottom feeding parasites. He going to look just fine as a man out standing in his cow patty filled pasture and irrelevancy.

  • Watch out for their current stupidity.. Boehner is willing to throw an easy election and sell out the country to put the conservative movement back it it’s place….

    After the primaries, when he feels it’s too late to do anything about it, he’ll run with immigration, knowing it will cause millions of conservatives not to vote.. If we do vote republican they’ll cheer about a voter mandate to give Obama and the Chamber of Commerce whatever they want.

    But if I’m right GOP won’t take the Senate and might lose the House.. That becomes our fault, of course, and they’ll marginalize us even more than they already have.. The media will gloat for years about the albatross of conservatism .. More importantly from as far as the DC Political class (both parties) are concerned they won’t have to deal with a few dozen new Ted Cruz’s, Mike Lee’s or Trey Gowdy’s.

    They know that if enough Constitutional Conservatives get elected, the DC that’s made them rich and powerful is history..

    Boehner is willing to take a hard hit this year to protect the status quo

      That is scary, and likely true.

    This is wonderful news. Thankfully the people are getting informed. Karl Rove and the RINO Party presently in DC have openly mocked and denounced the Tea Party because the TP will stop the Corruption going on in DC and will shrink the Federal Gov. The TP will cut programs, lower taxes, deregulate EPA’S restrictions on businesses, ax Obamacare, allow drilling on and off shore, insist on Term Limits, stop government funding of left wing groups such as Planned Parenthood, NPR and shut down the IRS. End earmarks and throw lobbyist out on their asses. What a wonderful place this would be. Unfortunately, RINO’s like Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan, John McCain, Peter King, John Boehner and others have sold their souls for a price and they need to go.

    • MattRoss

      I cannot add a thing to that. Well said!

  • Trestin

    Karl Rove? Was he named after another famous Karl? If the GOP continues this, we will see the rise of a serious third party. This nonsense needs to stop.

    • MattRoss

      I can see that happening. I think the GOP is a lost cause. Between Rove, and the Chamber, I’m starting to think third party.
