There has been only one non-progressive president in the last 100 years and that was Calvin Coolidge. The Progressive Movement has controlled our country and will continue until the populace wakes up and takes back our schools, our banks and the media. Then we might have a chance at restoring our country.
As long as conservatives continue to line up and vote for the GOP's mush candidates, Rove and company will do as they please.
The ROVINOS full of PORK CRAP and lean on Conservative Principles fit right in with the democrats, and do not have enough strength to totally overpower conservatives.
At best they are a ROTTEN Apple in the bottom of the barrel.
Like democrats the ROVINOS want conservative to compromise our principles to get along with them, but never the other way around.
Spot on Jen, Spot on!!!
I'm afraid that the conservatives will have to go their own way or sit out let Rove and his ilk destroy what is left of the GOP then pickup the pieces.
Either way conservatives will have to start from scratch.
Levin opened his show smacking Rove upside the head. Tune in. He is calling the Bush crime family crony capitalists and corporatists.
Levin is correct. One of the reasons I wish Fox would can Rove is because every time his face is seen it reminds people of Bush. Although I have come to believe that Bush was not nearly as bad as the dems made him out to be, his negatives are really high. That directly hurts the republican party and will continue to do so seemingly forever if Obama has his way.
The GOP must reject Rove, eh? Rove is the exact representation of the GOP as it presently is. If the GOP doesn't reject him, they and Rove will be rejected. Correction, they ARE being rejected...and will continue to be at a rapid rate.
Thank you, Jen, for pushing back on Karl Rove. It looks like he's getting lots of it, deservedly so, from Malkin, Erickson, Ben Shapiro, and you.
At least that's one thing that unites all of us, intense dislike for Rove.
Also, note that Rove likes to throw stones, but does not own up to his own mistakes. Who constantly lectured the grass roots that Romney was "the only one who could win." What about Scott Brown, Linda McMahon, and other moderate/"acceptable" candidates who also lost?
Its not a fair argument to bring up Scott Brown or Linda McMahon. They ran in MA and Connecticut. Those 2 states will elect democrats if they were dogs instead of people. Its like they were really sacrificial lambs using their own money to try to win. MA voters elected a true habitual democratic liar instead of Scott Brown merely because he was a republican. If he changed his registration to democrat he might stand a change as long as a Kennedy did not want to run for the seat. Get real about these states.
It is about time rove and his people disappear from the gop. They have done nothing for the last two elections.
Sometimes I think the Republican Establishment is the greater enemy than the Democrats. We KNOW what the rats are all about, but the GOPe pretend to be our friends and stab us in the back time and time again. Right now, no one speaks for the Patriot Christian Conservative. If anything, they're trying to eliminate us quicker than the Democrats.
By all means, keep nominating moderate RINOs like Dole, McCain, and Romney. We all saw how "well" they did. Why is Rove so determined to use a formula that always loses? I'll tell you why, because they are nothing but RINOs with very little difference now between themselves and the Democrats. The only real difference is that the RINOs will spend money a little more slowly than the liberals. THAT'S IT! Rove wants to ignore people like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, or Marco Rubia and act as if they never happened. Instead of joining and advising the Tea Party and giving them ideas on how to strengthen their candidates, Rove wants to destroy the Tea Party. Why? Because the Tea Parties are a threat to the elite's hold on the Republican Party, that's why. And RINOs like Rove will not tolerate that. I'm really beginning to think we're better off with a third party and let the RINOs lose on their own.
The party bosses can give unlimited funds to incumbants/establishment types and there are strict limits imposed on challengers by law and party rules. Ppl need to know that the repub establishment plays hardball, are ruthless, and will even collaberate with democrats to destroy conservatives.
As long as people keep buying into the two party system, then Rove has you.
If you cannot break free from the two party system, then may your chains rest softly upon you.
Now we need Hannity, Levin, Rush and Wilkow to get on board (Hannity especially) to bring it to the front of the national conversation. This has to have alot of light shined on it by the so called Conservative media because Rove and the RINO's are deeply rooted into the party it will take a huge effort to extract his like from the GOP.
This is the political bloodletting that needs to happen within the Republican Party and it needs to happen right now before 2016. The 65% of registered Republican voters who did not vote the last election now have something to latch onto that will actually make a difference. The tea party has to speak direct to those folks and convince them to throw the old Bush regime (Karl Rove and his cronies) out on their collective/Progressive ears. This cannot drag out it has to be done before we go full swing into this next election cycle.
Excellent analysis, Jen.
I'd just add that grass root conservatives should be very wary of this type of control. I've said this already, but it bears repeating: what Rove and his henchpeople are proposing is exactly the same procedure used by communist parties everywhere.
It is called 'democratic centralism', and means that the leadership propose candidates or policies, which the members lower down then have to vote for. A 'nay' is not acceptable.
Instead of harsh consequences for the life and limb of communist members (look up the history of the Soviet Union), Rove is using the bludgeon of money, big money.
Unless he is taken on, full front, by the likes of Sen DeMint, Allen West and Sarah Palin, with the support of actual TEA Party members in Congress, prepare yourselves for a Biden or Clinton WH in 2016.
Its all about which Party gets to control the redistribution of the American people's wealth. Rove doesn't want the Conservative TP types to win as that would reduce the amount of stolen wealth available for redistribution. Read yesterday that the deal on the deal to uncap the debt ceiling until May in exchange for a fictional budget or no pay in reality allows the Federal Gov. to continue borrowing unlimited to August. Hmmm...who knew? And who's loaning, reality transferring America's wealth, the money to the Government? The private consortium of World Banks/Billionaires of which the private entity we call the Fed is but a part. Rove and his cabal of crony capitalist thieves may be doing America a favor by killing off the R's. That would be ridding ourselves of close to half of those destroying our Constitutional Republic. Now, how to mount a force against the D's after Rove's bigger is better D facilitators have self destructed...that is if Conservatives/TP quit deceiving themselves the R's can ever be changed.
IMO, this is not so much about Todd Akin and Christine O'Donnell. It's more about Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. Rove & Co. do not want rock-solid conservatives like them emerging as the stars and leaders of the GOP.
The Democrat-lite Republicans don't want to lose their power, their earmarks and crony capitalism. Politicians like Ted Cruz are a serious threat to their empire.
And of course Roger Ailes just extended his contract at Fox, along with Juan Williams, and Kirsten Powers. You can't make this crap up folks...
We need to find out and list the names of the people behind Karl Rove and his
Conservative Victory Project. We also need to not contribute to ANY group that
does not promote conservative choices.
It is my responsibility as a US citizen and voter to research the
records of individual candidates and formulate an opinion myself. I will then donate to their campaigns directly.
Exactly! No party loyalty for me! I haven't switched party alignment yet since I'd still like some influence in the primaries. But as long as the R party continues down this path, I think a ground swell will begin to create a new party! I would love to see a poll asking how many people would ditch the R party to a new party. That could be telling!
Rove, Powell, Christie et al keep saying that the problem with the Republican Party is the Tea Party, and that is why the Democrats keep winning. But they have it backwards. The problem with the party which is supposed to stand up for conservatism is that there are too many republicans like Rove, Christie, and Powell.
I read the RNC agrees with Rove and is looking for candidates to avoid Steve King's nomination to replace Tom Harkin in Iowa.
As far as I'm concerned Karl Rove has just written the GOP's obituary:
PARTY LOSES BIG IN 2014 CONGRESSIONAL ELECTION
"The Republican party is now officially dead, conservatives stayed away from the polls in great numbers and spent their time wondering where their country had gone."
I've got a better idea. Let's have the headline read:
NEW CONSERVATIVE THIRD PARTY TAKES OVER HOUSE AND SENATE!
We can do this but we have to stick together. If not the good ol' boys will continue to destroy everything our forefathers have built and we treasure.
One other thing....
Jen said: "In fact, it is the grassroots conservative that is more likely to search news stories and disseminate them via social networks, not the moderate party team player. It is the tea party conservatives that organize and reach out in their communities, not the moderate party team player. It is, in fact, the grassroots constitutional conservative that teaches and spreads the word on the valuable and magnificent founding of this nation."
That is exactly what the Obama campaign did as well and that is how he won despite being the worst president in modern times. So Jen is correct.
Well said Jen!
Rove keeps operating out of an old playbook and it out of touch with the base and reality. You simply cannot ignore the fact that 3 million conservatives stayed home. Rove plays that on Romney btw. Rove also ignores the fact that McCain got more votes than Romney because Palin was on the ticket.
It's time to show Rove the door. And his election predictions were so incorrect that Fox almost didn't let him come back. Notice Dick Morris hasn't been seen since the election.
I'm sick of Rove, Steve Schmidt, and the rest of the control freaks. They hate us and fear that they might lose control of the GOP. If they don't, there will be no GOP in short order.
That was the problem with Romney. He was the establishment candidate. The base tried to get behind him but the base did not see him as a better alternative to O. People don't want squishy candidates they want candidates with strong morals and convictions. The current class wants to win at any cost necessary which would include compromising beliefs and values. The only way to change the game is to change the players.
I didn't leave the GOP, the GOP left me...and Karl rove and the rest of the RINO's are the reason why. I will vote for conservatives wherever I find them and will never again vote for the DC Insider choice who is a RINO. We the People will take back the Republic one way or another. Ballots or bullets, which will it be?
The Democratic Party is in name only. It is the American Progressive Party since the days of FDR. It is built on solid and unwavering principles of Marx, for which, it has a a long range comprehensive strategy and plan to implement. With the full cooperation of the "free" press, it keeps these principles well camouflaged with flowery New Speak - sophisticated propaganda designed to mesmerize the masses. The Party itself is just one element of a well funded complex globalization initiative.
The Republican Party is playing checkers in a complex N-dimensional game of chess. The only Republicans who gain office of power are the ones granted a spot by the chessmasters.
I agree my dear. I have been a writer for The Tea Party Patriots for three years now and it is time to take the fork in the road and for a new political party called "The Conservative Party for Democracy. We are going to provide muscular leadership and $100,000,000 U.S. over the next 6 months. The business curve of the Tea Party is on the downside of advantage and they never found anyone to step up to the plate.
Regarding the republican cave-in on immigration
from today’s NY Times – Bill Keller
The good news is that the anti-immigration side has no lobbying equivalent of the National Rifle Association, no group with its hands so firmly on the throats of Congress that it can override public opinion. But the bill will face a reservoir of popular fear, resentment and misunderstanding. President Obama and the indefatigable Senator Charles Schumer will work the Democratic constituencies and rally public support, but the hard sell is up to a few key Republicans who understand that this is their party’s best hope of redemption with the surging Latino electorate.
Sounds to me like what is needed is an organization like
the NRA to deal with AMNESTY.
Establishment Republicans, such as Rove, are as much a part of the problem as Obama and his minions. Their objective is simply to maintain power, money and control.
The key to the success of the Tea Party will be to not simply divide the Republican Party in two, but to also draw the level-headed Democrats into the Tea Party. I was in D.C. for the 2009 9/12 march. It wasn't only Republicans. There are a lot of patriotic Democrats. They aren't all liberals. A lot of them are pissed off at what is happening as well.
IMHO, one of the best ways to do it is to divide and conquer the union vote. Expose the ways that unions HURT workers. The Steven Crowder video posted yesterday is a great example. There is no reason we can't be anti union corruption, thuggery and job protectionism (through inefficiency) and not be pro-worker. A union that provides well trained and hard-working workers would create more jobs and raise wages in the long run. Right-to-work legislation helps this because it forces the unions to make themselves attractive to workers.
Offense is needed. There are many Democrats who would fully reject and abandon their Progressive Party if its subversion and corruption were exposed in the light of day.
here is an example of Democrat I found this weekend:
Behind the Green Mask - Rosa Koire
There were also many Libertarians at that and other DC rallies. Sarah Palin warned the Republican establishment about alienating them
The Tea Party shares common ground with such people - very little it seems with the core Republican Party which is on a constant drift to become the right wing of he Progressive and globalization movements.
