Every day on social media I see well meaning Republican citizens criticizing the Tea Party for going after GOP incumbents. They worry we are going to lose these seats to the Democrats. They are willing to settle for mediocre candidates like Boehner and McConnell because they wear the team “R” on their Varsity jackets. One of the reasons these citizens don’t understand that guys like McConnell are working for the Left is because the Republican pundits and the Republican media who these people trust are covering up all the sleazy back room deals going on behind the scenes. Ann Coulter, Jennifer Rubin and John Feehery are just three examples of columnists who have a hidden agenda but there are dozens of others.
Last year when Margaret Thatcher died, self proclaimed conservative, Ann Coulter, used it as an excuse to go on TV and criticize Gov. Sarah Palin for not pronouncing her g’s at the end of certain words and while she was there she gave her opinion that due to Rand Paul’s height he could never become president. This year she is attacking conservative groups like the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) who are going after establishment Republicans like Sen. leader Mitch McConnell. Ann also implied Sen. Ted Cruz is more in favor of amnesty than Sen. Mitch McConnell which is a ridiculous falsehood. (Click here to read about McConnell and amnesty) Yes, the former cheerleader for Mitt Romney and Chris Christie is now shaking her pop poms and screaming “rah rah” for Mitch McConnell. Coulter is just like her male counterpart Karl Rove when it comes to snidely preaching to Tea Party conservatives about how to win elections.
Jim DeMint, president of The Heritage Foundation, founded the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) back when he was a South Carolina senator with the mission to support fiscally sound small government and Constitutional values. The DeMint- McConnell fued dates back eight years over an omnibus appropriations bill which DeMint stood firmly against on a matter of principle because it was chock full of earmarks. This is the classic and never ending battle between the conservative base and the Republican establishment. It’s the fight between the limited government and liberty of “we the people” versus the ever expanding overblown federal government which is making the fat cats in Washington D.C. very wealthy and extremely powerful.
He is the King of K Street, and thus, the prince of amnesty. …One thing is clear: you don’t raise the type of money McConnell rakes in every cycle if you oppose the endless supply of cheap labor. It happens to be that so many of McConnell’s associates and alumni work for amnesty groups like Zuckerberg’s PAC or the Chamber of Commerce. They always know he is in their back pocket, but is unable to vocally support them because his Kentucky constituents don’t appreciate illegal immigration.

The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin writes a column called Right Turn which is suppose to be from a “conservative prospective.” Her column consists of nothing more than bashing conservative politicians like Sen. Cruz, Gov. Palin, Gov. Perry and even Reagan himself. She has also been known to do battle with actual conservative writers such as Red State’s Erick Erickson. Not only does Rubin not have a journalist background, she was an extreme Leftist Berkley graduate and Los Angeles labor lawyer for over two decades. She only became a Republican later in life because she wasn’t happy with the Democrats’ views on how to handle terrorism. This woman is as far from conservative as it gets.
Then there is John Feehery, columnist for The Hill and Politico. He is touted as a veteran Republican strategist whose name you can trust but he is merely a lobbyist whose opinion can be swayed by the highest bidder. Like Rubin, he is quick to condemn real conservatives such as Rush Limbaugh. He even sided with NRSC’s Brad Dayspring when Dayspring falsely accused Mark Levin of a “pay-to-play” scheme with the SCF. The SCF was giving away paperback copies of Levin’s Liberty and Tyranny to contributors as a gift which is not uncommon for organizations to do and it wasn’t done in secrecy. This book had been a best seller four years earlier. Both Dayspring and Feehery were intelligent enough to know they were bold face lying when they implied that the SCF was somehow responsible for the success of the book but that didn’t matter. The goal was to get a smear on their enemies in the headline. In this case both Levin and the SCF were the targets.
Despite what these talking heads keep telling us Mitch McConnell is no friend to conservatives nor to conservative causes. He never intended to repeal Obamacare and he won’t lift a finger to stop amnesty.
Actually, Mitch McConnell has been pretty open in the past about his contempt for conservatives. He has referred to conservatives and the outside groups they fund, as traitors, bullies, drunks, and fringe. He claims conservatives “tear up every bar they walk into,” and he wants to “punch” the tea party “in the nose.” Erick Erickson – Red State
There are promising hopefuls like Dan Bongino running for office all across the country. Whenever, a Republican like Lamar Alexander takes shots at the Tea Party, a Tea Party candidate like Brenda Lenard steps up to the plate to challenge them. I’ve also heard good things about candidates such as Barry Loudermilk, Matt Lynch, Julianne Ortman, Bryan Smith, Milton Wolf and many others.The recent results in Texas showed conservatives sweeping their primaries. Mike Lee endorsed Ben Sasse in Nebraska. Rand Paul endorsed Greg Brannon for Senate in North Carolina. Chris McDaniels is attempting to unseat lifelong politician Thad Cochran in Mississippi. Doug Ross endorsed J.D. Winteregg over Speaker John Boehner in Ohio. Jolly’s victory was a barometer of how the wind is blowing. Conservatives are on the move and this has the old bulls scared and lashing out.
The NRSC, Mitch McConnell and these Potemkin journalists are so entwined with money-bundlers and lobbyists that they will do anything to smear the name of someone who is trying to clean up the crony capitalism in Washington D.C. Conservative talk radio exposes them daily. And the SCF is working to take them out politically. True conservatives are working to replace dirty and corrupt politicians with candidates who represent their home town constituents not their buddies who grease their palms at the biggest lobbying firm on K street.
However, it’s no wonder the average American citizen who isn’t a political junkie is misled by these pundits who are purposely creating this big illusion to trick and misinform the voters. I hope every conservative out there can ring the alarm bell with their friends and neighbors about what is really going on behind the curtain with the old Republican guard and help lead the conservatives to victory over both the GOP establishment and the Left this year.
