Exclusive -- McConnell: Tea Party
´Bullies´ Who Need Punch in Nose

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/22/2013 12:31:52 PM

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said on a conference call organized by Karl Rove’s Crossroads organization for large donors and their advisers on Oct. 30 that the Tea Party movement, in his view, is a “nothing but a bunch of bullies” that he plans to “punch … in the nose.” On the call, according to a donor who was on it, McConnell personally named Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) as Tea Party conservatives he views as problematic for him. “The bulk of it was an attack on the Tea Party in general, Cruz in particular,” the source, a

Comments:
NO!!! And yet McConnell on Laura Ingraham´s show this morning would not say one bad word about the filthy jerk Harry Reid. This is just beyond disappointing and depressing.

McConnell´s time is short and he is a desperate man. He knows he is looking at going down to a Tea Party supported candidate next year.

Mitch, look into a mirror.

A large, castor oil, dose of humility is needed for these "old hands."

Establishment RINOs don´t want to be held accountable. They just want to keep making money and gaining power and prestige from their elected offices like typical corrupt sleazeballs. They might as well be Democrats, Socialists, Communists or any other kind of tyrant you can think of. Establishment RINOs are the real bullies.

Don´t know what´s going on with my ´puter - can´t access the article, but responding to what I´m able to read of it here ...

“nothing but a bunch of bullies” that he plans to “punch … in the nose.”

Who´s sounding like the bully here?

I´ve never heard Cruz or Lee use bullying, or disrespectful, language. McConnell and McCain are all about name calling and punching Wacko Birds in the nose.

The constituents of all Republican Senators voted in to the Senate have been disenfranchised.

McConnell just put a ´kick me´ sign on his back.

He will be kicked out of office at his next Primary.

It´s better to have a known enemy in office than a, ´so called´ friend who stabs you in the back while your fighting the enemy.

Obviously McConnell does not have the huevos to punch the liberal Democrats in the nose, so he is content on alienating the Tea Party types, thus splitting the Republican Party, and sending it into political oblivion.

#2, let me give you a list of "Tea party candidate" Matt Bevin´s biggest supporters:

a. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee
b. The Senate Democratic Leadership
c. Moveon.org
d. Progress Kentucky Now shut for illegal activities, but associated with Moveon.org and the Occupy movement.

Bevin most vocal individual booster is Wendy Caswell, who last year signed a pledge to uphold the principles of the Democratic Party.

Do you really, really, really think the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee et al. are interested in replacing Mitch McConnell with a principled conservative?

An anonymous donor is the source .

“Your source is ascribing things to the call that simply were never said,”
Collegio said in an email.
“There was no ‘anti-tea party donor call.’ There was a call, and there was some discussion about the government shutdown
and the Senate Conservatives Fund (note this was one day after SCF launched a dishonest ad about McConnell), but nothing
about the Tea Party or Sens. Cruz or Lee.”

In May of this year Mitchie-babes announced he was a "Tea Party Conservative Republican" whereby the Louisville Tea Party promptyly endorsed Matt Bevin as their candidate for the US Senate. Ol´ Mitchie has had his nose out of joint ever since.

Now, luking, moderate Republicans, do you believe us? The Elite Republicans are gunning for the Tea Party and they admit it in print and out loud. That would be: Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Roy Blunt, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Murkowski from Alaska, Collins from Maine, Kelly Ayotte...I could go on and on but there´s a start to the list of Elites who have declared war and are not following Reagan´s Eleventh Commandment.

Those backers of the Kentucky "Tea Party" candidate have been listed on this forum several times and the same poster always asks for sources. Sources are always given, but then here comes the same poster again, next time around, asking for sources. Maybe you should print them out for reference?

Bevin may be a nice guy, but he was recruited by Democrats to run against McConnell in a primary, apparently to fool any true tea partiers in Kentucky.

Funny that McConnell is using the word "bully" about other people.

The dumb RINOs should be embracing "tea party" policies like smaller government, lower taxes, and economic freedom, not dissing them. If McConnell really said this, he deserves to lose in a primary challenge.

I hope #2 is right and he is terrified.

Unfortunately McConnell is probably only ensuring that a Democrat will be elected to replace him; I assume the conservatives won´t vote for Mitch and his GOP loyalist won´t vote for anyone else.

The Democrats will vote 120% if the race seems close.

It´s simple math. The "Tea Party" and conservative do not square with "Republicanism". The whole thing is about moving to capture disaffected "moderates" to the party, and running off the bogeymen is the first big step. The clear message is, "We´re not those people."

"Collegio declined to provide a transcript or recording of the call to Breitbart News. McConnell’s office has not commented on the matter."

You sorta forgot to mention this #19.

Knowing that the Republican Establishment has a proven habit to do and say anything to get elected,and that Breitbart probably trusts the source, I think it safe to assume that the words were spoken and wont hold my breath waiting until Rove and crew supply an unredacted transcript. Which, by the way, they were asked to do and refused.

Isn´t it funny, when Commie Lib Rat or one of their comrades, an Establishment Republican quotes an anonymous source going after a Conservative it´s taken for gospel. When it´s the other way round, not so much.

If, for the sake of argument, the challenger is as bad as advertised, how would the national party be any worse off, other than the obvious loss of an unprincipled rovian.

As for his willingness to engage in pugilistics with a tea party bully, I´ll give him the first one for free.

This man is unworthy of Senate seat, much less a leadership position.

Matt Bevin is going to give him a real run for his money. McConnell thought he had enough money to beat anyone. He forgot conservatives outside the State of Kentucky who will support Bevin.

"An effective plan that stops the failed cycle of amnesty would include immediate enforcement of all the laws on the books, allowing states like Kentucky to enforce federal immigration laws without fear of reprisal from a rogue administration, and cutting off welfare benefits to those who come here illegally."

-immediate enforcement of all the laws on the book- music to my ears. Wish I lived in Kentucky to vote for him.

His bio; Married with 9 children, 4 year ROTC scholarship, 4 years active duty rank of Captain in the Infantry Division Artillary Counterfire, humble beginnings but worked his way up to President of Bevin Bros by turning the family company around and paid off their debts. (They make bells; inc those used by the Salvation Army)

On the issues: Immigration policy as stated above, on 2nd amendment - he and his wife are conceal carry arms owners and there is no room for compromise in Bevin´s view of the Right to Bear Arms, Fiscally conservative, Obamacare is a disaster and he would propose free market reforms instead, ProLife and would not support any bill that supports abortion rights but does strongly support adoption as he and his wife have adopted four children, From his website under issues; "Matt supports marriage as traditionally defined between a man and a woman."

What more do you need to know? He sounds like an excellent choice for the US Senate!

#53 and #54, Most of us who care enough about what is happening to our nation to be involved in its politics are also smart enough to figure out how to find an article, even if the link doesn´t work right. We are also diligent and motivated enough to do so.

I understand that it is the current fashion to paint those who believe that the Republican Party is not listening to them as whiners and complainers, who are to lazy to get involved and therefore have no right to voice their complaints, but don´t buy into the propaganda; we are paying close attention and we are very involved.

The Roots of CAIR’s
Intimidation Campaign
National Review Online, by Andrew C. McCarthy    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/13/2014 10:12:32 PM     Post Reply
Author’s Note: This week, capitulating to Islamic-supremacist agitation led by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Brandeis University reneged on its announced plan to present an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the heroic human-rights activist. In my 2010 book, The Grand Jihad, I devoted a chapter to the origins and purposes of CAIR, its roots in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Hamas-support network, and its aim to silence critics of Islamic supremacism. In light of the continuing success of this campaign — despite a federal terrorism-financing prosecution that exposed CAIR’s unsavory background — it is worth revisiting that history. What follows

Paul defends Bush on immgration but

Sen. Rand Paul says potential White House rival Jeb Bush was inarticulate when he described immigrants who come to the United States illegally as committing an "act of love." In an interview that aired Sunday, Paul said that those immigrants "are not bad people" but added the United States "can´t invite the whole world" inside its borders. Paul, the Kentucky Republican eyeing a 2016 campaign, says Bush should have kept his focus on controlling the U.S. borders. Bush, a former Florida governor, says the GOP cannot demonize immigrants and should show compassion. He described illegal immigration as an "act of love" by people

Released Emails Reveal GM CEO Was
Warned of Steering Problems in 2011

Despite the testimony of GM CEO Mary Barra that the company "acted without hesitation" to address the ignition switch problems that served as the basis for the latest recall of millions of vehicles, emails show that GM failed to address product problems, some of which Barra herself seemed fully aware of, at least as far back as 2011. The company, often derided as "Government Motors" because of the billions of tax dollars infused into it by President Obama, has been under fire this month because of ignition switch problems linked to dozens of crashes and perhaps as many as 13 deaths.

Benghazi Mother at San Diego
Protest: ´Hillary Lied´

SAN DIEGO, CA -- Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke via satellite to attendees of San Diego’s Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on Apr. 11, just days after canceling plans to attend in person. Two protest groups gathered outside the San Diego Convention Center for the conference, but for two different reasons. One group of 10-15 demonstrators, promoting a single-payer healthcare system, stood across from the Convention Center. While playing a recording of the folk tune “Medicare for All,” the group spoke to passing pedestrians for approximately two hours. The other protest, directly in front of the Convention Center,

I have here in my hand a list of six people who think Darrell Issa is a fellow traveler of Joseph McCarthy. I compiled these names while watching Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, lead his panel’s proceedings Thursday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress. Among the half-dozen Democrats who made the comparison: “What we’re about today brings us right back to the McCarthy era,” Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-Va.) said. Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) accused Issa of “stripping away the constitutional rights of an American” in a way that “has not

DOJ says cross on California
war memorial should stay

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed. Last month,

Death by solar farms: 71 species of birds
killed, ‘entire food chains’ disrupted
Washington Times, by Douglas Ernst    Original Article

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

Friday is investigative journalist Michael Isikoff’s last day at NBC News, according to TVNewser. This is Michael Isikoff‘s last day at NBC News, TVNewser has learned. Isikoff joined NBC News in 2010 as a Washington, DC-based investigative correspondent, after 16 years with Newsweek. The news comes three months after fellow NBC News investigative reporter Lisa Myers left the network, and just two weeks after NBC hired Cynthia McFadden away from ABC, naming her senior legal and investigative correspondent. “Michael has done terrific work for NBC News on stories ranging from revealing which government official leaked the US Stuxnet virus attack

President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won his battle to graze cows on public land after a week-long stand off with federal agents. The Bureau of Land Management today said it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia members today continuing to gather in Nevada in a confrontation with federal agents. BLM Director Neil Kornze said: ´Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of

Climate Change Gets Big-Budget
Treatment on Showtime

Climate change is one of the issues at the top of President Barack Obama’s agenda, and now it’s getting big budget treatment in Hollywood, at least by documentary standards. A nine-part series called “Years of Living Dangerously” will debut this Sunday evening on Showtime–emphasizing stories “from the front lines” of climate change impact. The first episode, now available online, stars actors Harrison Ford and Don Cheadle, two of the series’ correspondents. “It’s the biggest story out there,” said James Cameron, an executive producer of the series, in an interview. Mr. Cameron, who became one of the most successful men in

A nine-month-old boy who appeared in Pakistan charged with attempting to murder police officers has been cleared, following a week-long police investigation. Baby Muhammad Mosa Khan was accused of being part of a ruthless gang of gas thieves who tried to kill police by hurling stones at them during a raid. Last week he was pictured at court in Lahore sitting on his grandfather´s lap, contentedly sucking on a bottle of milk as the charges against him were read out. A Pakistani lawyer said the judge announced the decision after Saturday´s court hearing during which police said it had dropped the charge

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
