Boehner & Establishment GOP Declare War on the Tea Party

“I have made it clear that I have great respect for the tea party and the energy they brought to the electoral process,” said Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R) Ohio to reporters in February of this year. Then, in a statement that more resembled his famed crying incidents, he went on to whine, “My gripe is with some Washington organizations who feel like they’ve got to go raise money by beating on me and others.” That’s what politics is all about, I thought. But it seems the establishment GOP takes offense to being reminded that their constituencies would […]

Mitch McConnell on Conservatives: ‘I think we are going to crush them everywhere’

My favorite term as of late has been “crapweasel.”  Basically, it conveys the dismissive, yet contemptuous attitude regarding another person.  Given that, I think Mitch McConnell fits that perfectly.  On Sunday, The New York Times reported that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) stated that he would work to destroy the efforts of conservative organizations seeking to primary mainstream Republicans. “I think we are going to crush them everywhere,” he stated. “I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.” Over the past two election cycles, mainstream Republicans have become more and more upset […]

Karl Rove Declares War on Tea Party: Fundraising Drops by 98%

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 […]

The GOP Plan To Eat Its Own

I came across this American Spectator article by Jeffery Lord at the MB50 blog. It was the title, Karl Rove and the GOP Socialists, that captured my attention. Before getting into Karl Rove and his big-government Republican socialists, I need to be up front with you, dear readers, about my view of the geo-politics of America today. This humble observer of the asylum we all have to live in arrived at the conclusion some time ago that it no longer matters much who is elected to the House, the Senate, or even the Presidency. The Leviathan is out of control. Any […]

GOP: Grand Old Poltroons

“Republican leadership has completely lost its way. Not only is this proposal a full surrender- it’s a complete surrender with presents for the Democrats. Apparently Mitch McConnell’s idea of a ‘compromise’ is to increase the debt limit, fully fund a broken health care law, and promise talks of increasing spending down the road.” – Matt Kibbe “We have the best government that money can buy.” – Mark Twain The dirty deal is done.  Mitch McConnell sold what was left of his soul for $2 billion, and Barack Obama and his cronies get to spend another trillion dollars of your money. […]

Republican Senator Mitch McConnell Sold Out To Obama and The Democrats

Once again the elites in Washington have proven that the founding concept of a “government of the people, by the people and for the people” is nothing more than a myth. Senator Mitch McConnell  sold out the Tea Party Republicans for a large barrel of pork for his state of Kentucky. Not only did the Republican leader in the Senate give Obama everything they wanted on the Continuing Resolution and the Debt Ceiling, he gave Obama the tool to be able the raise the debt ceiling in the future without having to worry about what the Republicans want in exchange. Breitbart […]

RINO ALERT!! Boehner Willing to Abandon GOP & 2nd Amendment

In the spirit of pure bipartisanship that is simply for the sake of saying a bill is bipartisan, Speaker of the House, John Boehner said the following when asked if the Senate gun control bill would pass with a majority of HIS OWN FREAKING PARTY not voting for it: “GOP? GOP? I don’t need no steenking GOP to take yer guns!!” Okay, first of all, I paraphrased and secondly he was referring to the Hastert Rule which basically says that any bill without support of the majority party will not be brought to the floor for a vote. But Johnny […]

Political Zombie, Mark Sandford, Back From the Grave and Winning?

Perhaps I’m coining a new phrase, “political Zombie.” Political Zombie: Noun; A politician whose dead career has come back to life, but is really still dead. Mark Sanford is a political zombie.  His political career died in 2009, by his own hands, when he spent Father’s Day weekend walking the Appalachian Trail.  However, he somehow confused “walking the Appalachian Trail” with, “visiting my super-secret Argentinian girlfriend.”  I suppose it was a mistake that anyone could make.  After all, most devoted family men have super-secret Argentinian girlfriends, right? Understandably, the voting public didn’t accept the glaring difference in hiking and, well…you […]

Mark Levin wants John Boehner and the Republican Leadership Removed M

Most of you know I’m no fan of John Boehner.  It was an epic failure by the House Republicans when they voted him back in as Speaker this past January.  The Republicans once again let an opportunity get away from them to turn this thing around and make a difference.  Today I was listening to Sean Hannity on the radio and he was interviewing John Boehner.  Nothing Boehner said inspired or gave me hope as a conservative.  He is the poster child for the establishment and as long as he remains as Speaker of the House conservatism will suffer.  Today […]

Rhinovirus Devastates Republicans

Several Republicans on Capitol Hill have fallen ill with the Rhinovirus, it has been learned.  Lindsey Graham, John McCain, John Boehner among other prominent Republicans are among those affected by the pernicious virus. “It is flu season” said a Washington D.C. doctor treating the Republican lawmakers. Still at the very least one would think that these men would be more careful.  They are busy, important men with constituencies to take care of.  But once they get infected with the Rhinovirus they are pretty much useless. Congressman Graham was the first to come ill, complaining of a runny nose and a […]

Establishment GOP Vs Tea Party? Karl Rove Thinks so

It seems that the establishment GOP, personified by Karl Rove, is declaring war on the Tea Party.  While we have know this ever since the Tea Party’s inception, it seems that the mask is coming off the RINO/Whig division of the party.  Breitbart has more… The battle for the heart and soul of the Republican Party has begun. On one side is the Tea Party. On the other side stand Karl Rove and his establishment team, posing as tacticians while quietly undermining conservatism. Yesterday, the New York Times reported that the “biggest donors in the Republican Party” have joined forces […]

It’s time to do the right thing…Fire John Boehner?

For the last couple of days I’ve been observing the Benghazi hearings and the negotiations going on with John Boehner and Democratic leaders to prevent us from going off a fiscal cliff.  It appears the left cares more about politicizing events to advance the agenda of their political party than doing what’s right and good for America and I’m personally tired of it.  Benghazi is a no-brainer. After seven hours of fighting and numerous requests for help, we failed to answer the call and left our citizens to die in the streets of Benghazi.  This alone is absolutely unacceptable, but […]

Re-Redefining Conservatism

rino_big

Remember when Bush came into office with his “compassionate conservative” slogan?  Remember how that translated?  Compassionate conservatism was Bush’s way of saying, “Hey, I’m for capitalism, but only up to a certain point, then I’m for socialism”.  In politics, this is a “playing the whole field” approach.  It appeases moderates who want to hear milquetoast language, liberals who want the social net, and conservatives who aren’t paying attention (hey, conservatism is in the name, it must be good). Now Romney, who plays center field with the range of Willie Mays, ran into a criticism after he said that he “didn’t care […]

Are More Conservative Supporting Rick Santorum?

2012electionapocalypse

Well, there are quite a few high profile Conservatives getting behind former PA Senator Rick Santorum.  For background, here is some more from The Other McCain… OK, so having endured those lean, lonely and seemingly hopeless weeks of early December, I am not even slightly daunted now, and am in fact greatly encouraged to see that more and more conservatives are climbing aboard the Santorum Express. The latest is Ed Morrissey of Hot Air: Why Santorum?  In my estimation, Santorum is the last consistent conservative standing, and the only one both promoting the conservative agenda and campaigning as a conservative in the race.  . […]

Powerful Anti-Romney Video

alinsky romney soros

I caught this over at The Other McCain… As all of you know, I’m a fan of neither Gingrich or Romney, but this ad seems to hit the mark.  However, if anyone has additional footage that shows that anything here was taken out of context, kindly share it.  

Has Ann Coulter Been Replaced by an Alien Pod?

Spock_(mirror)

We all know Ann Coulter.  She’s known as the snarky, self assured destroyer of liberals.  With years of practice, she’s honed her skills to a razor’s edge.  She’s written multiple best selling books, and deals crushing blows to the MSM whenever she appears on a lefty network show.  To put it mildly, she is formidable. Then, something strange happened.  Recently, she endorsed Mitt Romney, citing him as the most Conservative candidate in the field.  That gave me pause, but I chalked it up to simple differences in opinion that mark this primary season.  Emotions are running high, and people are […]

Newt Gingrich a Fan of Theodore Roosevelt, FDR, and Woodrow Wilson? UPDATED

When we are looking for a Conservative to nominate in order to defeat Barak Obama in November.  I know that some of my fellow bloggers are leaning towards Newt Gingrich for that task.  However, I strongly disagree, and for additional evidence, offer the following video… After that, can we doubt that Gingrich  is a progressive?  And, what might a Republican progressive President do with the power of the executive branch.  Being a regressive, that POTUS wouldn’t reduce the power of the government-they would increase it.  Regressivism requires power to meet it’s “lofty” goals, and with that power comes control.  Human […]

Just in Case you Needed yet Another Reason to Dislike Gingrich: Number 2112

The standard Newt narrative is that he was for the individual mandate in the 90′s, as an alternative to Hillary Care.  Then, he was against it.  Apparently, that “now” has only emerged over the last three years-more than likely after he wet his finger to see which way the wind was blowing.  Here is the proof, from BuzzFeed, via the Daily Caller… Sorry, Newt supporters, the man is a RINO, big government, progressive, and statist-pure and simple.  Like so many others, he’ll tell us what we want to hear, and then govern against our wishes, as well as our freedoms.

Live Feed Link for Tonight’s GOP Debate

It’s time for another Republican debate.  Gingrich is starting slow, Paul is rising in Iowa, and Romney is still a RINO.  The Debate begins at 9:00 PM EST.   Hit the link below to see what happens… Fox News Feel free to drop your comments and analysis below.

Judge Napolitano: Teddy Roosevelt the original “Nanny Stater”

It’s time to snap out of this Newt Gingrich trance so many seem to be caught up in and come to our conservative senses. Mr. Gingrich may be the smartest guy in the room, but he’s also a progressive.  He’s a believer in big government and models himself after another big government progressive Teddy Roosevelt. President Obama, also a big government politician stated in Kansas the other day that rugged individualism has failed in America. Oh yeah he too embraces Teddy Roosevelt’s nanny state philosophy.  And just to refresh your memory, it was John McCain in 2008 who stated that his favorite President was Teddy Roosevelt. Is the picture becoming clearer? Are […]

Romney Campaign Slams Gingrich in Conference Call: Conservative Media Ignored

Just on the off chance that you needed another reason to avoid Romney like the one manned RINO Plague that he is, here is the lastest, from The Other McCain… Mitt Romney’s campaign organized a media conference call Thursday on which two Romney surrogates — Missouri Sen. Jim Talent and New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu — took turns bashing Newt Gingrich. Matt Lewis at Daily Caller points out that although they took questions from left-wing outfits like Talking Points Memo and Mother Jones, the Romneyites couldn’t find time for any conservative media. UPDATE: Just to give you a small sample of the many […]

Some Thoughts on GOP Candidates: Is it now Romney vs. Gingrich?

rino_big

Are we now stuck with Romney the waffler vs Newt the neocon for the GOP nomination?   Herman Cain is under sustained attack, and is slipping in the polls.  Bachmann is teetering on irrelevance.  Ron Paul is great, but has little chances.  Santorum is running as a Social Conservative when people care more about the economy.  Huntsman is irrelevant, as well as being all but a Democrat. As we speak, Gingrich is on the rise.  I did watch his debate with Cain, and was impressed with his speaking ability.  Let’s face it, he’s incredibly intelligent, and can speak, with authority, on nearly […]

Some Thoughts on the GOP Candidates: Beware of False Promises

rino_big

One of the things that brings my blood to a boil is candidates that talk like strong Conservatives on the campaign trail, but govern like establishment types.  I raged silently about that during the last decade, and time hasn’t tempered that rage a single bit.   Sadly, I’m seeing that now, and all of the red flags are up, and in neon.  Yesterday, Adrienne had a transcript of a Perry campaign speech.  Here are some excerpts… Part one of my plan is to reform the federal judiciary by ending life terms for unelected federal judges. Too many federal judges rule […]

Just in Case you need another reason to reject Romney: He worked with John Holdren to implement cap and trade!

rino_big

As all of you know, I am NOT a fan of Mitt Romney.  I believe him to be a RINO of the highest lowest order.  However, if any of you out there are still wavering, here is yet another game changer-he apparently worked with now Science Czar John Holdren to implement more stringent environmental regulations in Massachusetts.  If you recall, we covered Mr. Holdren rather extensively in the past, so we know that he has been rather radical in his support of de-development and forced population control. The Lonely Conservative has the coverage… Thanks to Moonbattery for digging this up. This brings us […]

Why America Should Not Support Moderate or Centrist Republicans in 2012

rino_big

Among we conservative bloggers, there are many erudite intellectuals.  Some of these very bright people are capable of making very compelling arguments for positions  that are contrary to positions of most conservatives. Let me describe a recent case in point. Recently a blogger, for whom I have the utmost respect and who definitely is one of the intellectuals among us, made a very compelling case for Mitt Romney  being the best bet to beat Obama in 2012. Although he admitted that his personal preference was for a candidate much more radically to the right of Mitt Romney, he said he was […]
