The Republican establishment goes after the Tea Party

November 3, 2013

  The Republican establishment ruling class elite care about one thing and one thing only and that is holding on to power. These ruling class Republicans see a threat to that power and that threat is the conservative wing of the party which is not willing to play nice with the ruling class Democrats–in other words, the Tea Party.

  These ruling class Republicans would rather play nice with the Democrats and see the conservative faction of the party as the true enemy and the biggest threat to their power.

  This was never more evident than almost one year ago when John Boehner punished conservatives by stripping them of key committee positions for not falling in line with the establishment Republicans, and most recently when we learned the GOP establishment might be preparing to primary Mike Lee for bucking the powers that be in the Republican party.

  And the GOP establishment attack on the conservative faction of the party continues for we learn in this article that the elitists in the Republican party will block  Jamestown Associates from doing work for conservative candidates in the  2014 elections.

    Why is the GOP taking this action? Because Jamestown Associates has worked with the Senate Conservatives Fund, which was created by Jim DeMint after he left the Senate, to elect conservatives to the upper chamber. Here is a list of some of the people SCF has supported:

Jamestown Associates has done work with the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF), a conservative group largely responsible for the elections of Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Rand Paul (R-KY), Deb Fischer (R-NE), Pat Toomey (R-PA), and Ron Johnson (R-WI), among others. 

  The real problem the establishment Republicans have with this group is easy to surmise, they do not blindly support the establishment candidate, and are actively campaigning against Mitch McConnell:

In a warning shot to outside conservative groups, the National Republican Senatorial Committee this week informed a prominent Republican advertising firm that it would not receive any contracts with the campaign committee because of its work with a group that targets incumbent Senate Republicans,” the Times wrote. 

“Even more striking,” the Times continued, “a senior official at the committee called individual Republican Senate campaigns and other party organizations this week and urged them not to hire the firm, Jamestown Associates, in an effort to punish them for working for the Senate Conservatives Fund, a group founded by Jim DeMint, then a South Carolina senator, that is trying to unseat Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, and some other incumbents up for re-election next year whom it finds insufficiently conservative.”

  At the risk of offending my diehard Republican readers and supporters, of which I was one when I started this blog, I am going to be perfectly blunt: If you take the same position as Ann Coulter does (she lost all credibility with me when she flip-flopped on Mitt Romney because her boy, RINO Chris Christie, endorsed him) and you believe you should support any incumbent over the Tea Party candidate just because they have the best chance to win even though they are not conservatives and do not have the American peoples’ best interests at heart than you are no better than the Democrat voters who blindly follow Barack Obama.

  The Republican establishment does not care about you so why should you support them? Some of us wake up, others roll over…..

    More and more reason to stay home on a cold Tuesday November morning.
