    Conservative group endorses Republican challenger to Mitch McConnell

    The new Republican challenger to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell scored an early endorsement Monday from a national conservative group.

    The Madison Project — a political action committee chaired by former Kansas Rep. Jim Ryun that raises money for conservative candidates — announced they will be supporting Kentucky businessman Matt Bevin in the Republican primary against McConnell.

    The PAC is launching a website, DumpMcConnell.com.

    “The only way to change the lackluster leadership in the Republican Party is to replace the career politicians who lead the party,” Ryun said in the endorsement. “Matt Bevin is brave enough to storm the castle of the GOP Establishment and challenge the sitting minority leader, and we are proud to stand with him and millions of conservatives who feel disenfranchised by unprincipled GOP leaders like Mitch McConnell.”

    Bevin announced his candidacy last week.

    This could get interesting-McConnell is pretty entrenched and probably has lots of funds for his re-election.

    I think this needs to be done. These RINO's need to go. I don't want someone who is going to make nice with the left. I want someone who is going to stomp on the left. After all, who on the left makes nice with the GOP? NONE!

    Kentucky-Bribed Statesman: Mitch McConnell Unmasked

    Anthony Weiner recently lamented that "if the internet didn't exist," he'd be the mayor of New York. In other words, if John Q. Public weren't so privy to the facts, and so readily able to investigate those facts and exchange opinions about them online, politicians could more easily manipulate their political images and determine the outcome of elections.

    Likewise, Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell is now feeling the stinging disapproval of an informed public that he may not have felt twenty years ago. Like the grand reveal at the end a Scooby-Doo episode, McConnell the "fiscally conservative" Senate leader has been unmasked in the last month's proceedings and identified as what he really is -- a career politician who'd sell his constituents and American taxpayers down the river for a buck (or in this case, a couple billion bucks). And he would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for meddling Matt Drudge and the like.

    In late September, Mitch McConnell used his lofty position in the Republican minority to stand against Senate conservatives like Ted Cruz and fellow Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. He made and underhanded effort to block a House bill which would fund the government and raise the debt ceiling in exchange for defunding ObamaCare. Knowing that the Senate would not have the 60 votes necessary to amend the House bill to fund ObamaCare, he and fellow collaborators voted in favor of a cloture vote which would allow Harry Reid and Senate Democrats to amend the bill with an easily attainable straight majority vote. Then, having cleared the Senate Democrats' path to funding ObamaCare, he cast a show vote against the amended spending bill, which included the funding of ObamaCare, hoping it would absolve him of any blame.

    We noticed it. In fact, it was insulting and infuriating that McConnell took such care to conceal the betrayal of his stated conviction to oppose ObamaCare. Now, his efforts to fund ObamaCare have culminated in what's being described as the "Kentucky Kickback" by the Senate Conservatives Fund. "In exchange for funding ObamaCare and raising the debt limit," the group says, "Mitch McConnell has secured a $2 billion earmark" to a pet project in his home state of Kentucky.

    Well, at least we know McConnell's price, and I think he'll probably announce his retirement soon. But I can't wait to find out who'll replace Bone...er...Boehner in the House.

    May God have mercy on both their souls, 'cause I wouldn't.

    I won't either. I must be getting cranky with all this political stuff, because I hang up when the RNC calls for donations. The other night one of the Tea Party groups called and we actually donated. We need people with the guts to stand up for us. I hope that we find leaders with both guts and brains--it's going to take something to get around the slimeballs and their goons, the press.

    Sad thing is two of the biggest slime balls are allegedly members of the GOP...Rence Pribus and Karl Rove.

    Just heard last night that the RNC donated exactly ZERO to the Steve Lonegan campaign.

    Karl Rove's War On the Tea Party

    Karl Rove is backing a new effort to stop the Tea Party in its tracks. The Tea Party is, predictably, not pleased.

    The New York Times reported over the weekend that Rove's super PAC American Crossroads is backing a new group, the Conservative Victory Project, which will enlist big-money GOP donors to fight back against Tea Party groups that are looking to oust Republican establishment candidates >>>

    Politico reports that Club for Growth and the Senate Conservatives Fund, highly influential conservative groups that have helped far-right candidates win their primaries, mocked American Crossroads' new effort.

    "They are welcome to support the likes of Arlen Specter, Charlie Crist and David Dewhurst," Club for Growth spokesman Barney Keller said. "We will continue to proudly support the likes of Pat Toomey, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz."

    "The Conservative Defeat Project is yet another example of the Republican establishment's hostility toward its conservative base," said Matt Hoskins, executive director of the Senate Conservatives Fund. "Rather than listening to the grassroots and working to advance their principles, the establishment has chosen to declare war on the party's most loyal supporters," Hoskins said. "If they keep this up, the party will remain in the wilderness for decades to come."

    Rove Declares War on Tea Party

    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 with Karl Rove and Steven J. Law, president of American Crossroads, to create the Conservative Victory Project. The Times reports that this new group will dedicate itself to “recruit seasoned candidates and protect Senate incumbents from challenges by far-right conservatives and Tea Party enthusiasts who Republican leaders worry could complicate the party’s effort to win control of the Senate.” >>>

    But it is American Crossroads and its ilk that have run the GOP into the ground. Spending millions of dollars on useless 30,000-ft. advertising campaigns during the last election cycle, training candidates to soften conservatism in order to appeal to “moderates,” blowing up the federal budget under George W. Bush as a bipartisan tactic – all of those strategies led the party to a disastrous defeat in 2012. The Tea Party, which may nominate losers from time to time, also brought the Republicans their historic 2010 Congressional victory. If Tea Party candidates lose, it’s because they weren’t good candidates; if GOP establishment candidates lose, it’s because they weren’t good conservatives. The choice for actual conservatives should be easy.

    But it isn’t. The Bush insider team that helped lead to the rise of Barack Obama insists that they, and only they, know the path to victory. As the Times reports, Conservative Victory Project won’t merely protect incumbents – it will challenge sitting Congresspeople of the Tea Party variety >>>

    In truth, conservatism wins elections so long as the messenger doesn’t implode. Rove’s view, however, is that conservatism takes a back seat to the best quasi-conservative messenger.

    But victory for conservatives isn’t Rove’s goal. He’s a political insider par excellence, and he’s playing for his political life in the aftermath of 2012. If that means declaring war on the Tea Party, so be it.
