Tea Party Declares WAR on GOP Establishment
Breitbart ^ | November 8 2012 | by Tony Lee7

Posted on 11/09/2012 12:24:59 PM PST by Kevmo

The Tea Party Patriots declared war on the Republican establishment after moderate establishment Republican Mitt Romney's loss to President Barack Obama on Tuesday.

Jenny Beth Martin, National Coordinator of Tea Party Patriots, criticized the Republican Party for hand-picking a Beltway elite candidate who did not campaign forcefully on America's founding principles and said the "presidential loss is unequivocally on them."


Instead, Martin lamented, "what we got was a weak moderate candidate, hand-picked by the Beltway elites and country-club establishment wing of the Republican Party."

Martin said the Tea Party's "work begins again today" .... Establishment Republicans insisted to the conservative base that Romney -- a moderate more in line with their sensibilities than those of the cloth-coat base's -- gave the party the best chance to win a general election.

They were wrong.

Now who voted her in??? This is starting to sounds like National Organization of Women who claim to speak for all women but in reality is a small group of feminazi that support the democrat party.

This Tea Party name has been corrupted. Get rid of it.

In memory of Andrew Breitbart, I dub this conflict (before somebody else does) the F**k You War.

Watch Obama in the 1st. debate.

Then watch Mitt Romney in the 3rd. debate.

It’s almost like they agreed to swap places.

Mitt Romney in the third debate did little more than grin, he had plenty of ammunition and he didn’t use it.

In the campaign ,Obama called Mitt everything but a White man, While Mitt passed.

I still doubt Mitt could have beaten Obama as long as Obama was using our money to campaign in Air Force One and Wookie One, and the Media was full force behind him, plus all of th entitlement money we passed on to the 47%. When the baby killing women got behind the Mulatto star we were done.

Yeah. good luck with that.

If we aren’t outnumbered already, we will be very soon, perhaps before 2016.

The Republican party is where the Democrats were 20 or 25 years ago, in every way, with the exception that they might be more fiscally conservative than the democrats were back then.

As for moral compass, abortion, sexual exploitation of children, homosexuality, polyamory, fiscal responsibility, ALL of it, the GOPe does not want to hear about it.

As for enemies that hate us and want to destroy us and everything we ever stood for, both parties think we can be friends with them. Of course, their posture of appeasement will be punished by reality, and we all get to suffer with them.

Stick to your principles.

Withdraw from the GOPe.

Homeschool your children. Have lots of them.

Arm yourselves

Prepare for rolling brownouts, blackouts, fuel and food shortages, massive unemployment, and a collapsed economy.

This house of cards cannot stand for much longer.

7 of 10 Republicans that cast votes in the primaries voted
for one of the 7 much more conservative none GOPe candidates.

Next time there should be a pre primary so conservative party reformers pick a standard bearer to go up against the Organized Party bosses who have given us 2 Bushes, Dole, McCain and Romney all of the Rino’s.

When 70% of the base isn’t for your Dem Lite politics, you
get a shortfall of the faithfull showing up to vote and you
lose to Obama who got 9 million less votes than 4 years ago.

We just didn’t have a candidate that energized the base.

The Tea Party Patriots is a great organization that has worked very hard over the last few years to promote conservative American values and expose obamacare. They were very active in the 2010 elections as well as this year. Check them out at They produced a video ‘Determinators’ which you can watch on their website which gives a good explantation of the philosophy behind obamacare and how it will destroy our society.

Really Jenny Beth? Why aren’t you naming names then? Why don’t you call out Krauthammer...Will? It wasn’t just Priebus and Rove.

Note that almost all of the States that Mitt won in the primaries were the states he lost in the the time it came to the one big state that reliably votes Republican, Texas, we didn’t have a voice in who the nominee would be...that’s F’d up!

Akin will come up on this thread as a way to attack the tea party, but Akin was not the tea party candidate, and the tea party even tried to get him to withdraw after the primary.

Akin was not the tea party candidate.

“Missouri, a bastion of the tea-party movement, has been shifting right in recent elections. The Tea Party Express and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin endorsed former state Treasurer Sarah Steelman in the GOP primary. Self-financing businessman John Brunner had the backing of FreedomWorks, a national tea party umbrella group.”

This lie against the tea party is like the one claiming that Governor Palin had endorsed Sharon Angle (in the primary), which she hadn't.

This trick of liberal republicans and Romney supporters of ignoring things like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and then falsely declaring Akin as chosen by the 'tea party', needs to be challenged.

***Fascinating. The primary process is the 2nd biggest blinking red light on the dashboard. The biggest is MSM bias. Not sure what we can do about that other than to encourage superwealthy social conservatives to buy up as much media as they can.

From my home page, here’s how we can fix the primaries:


Here’s how I think primaries should be organized:

My suggestion is basically to hold the first primary in the state that has the highest percentage of GOP votes in the last election, the 2nd primary in the 2nd highest, and so on. 2 primaries a week for 25 weeks, with the last primaries being the suckup-to-the-democrats. And the democrats could easily have their primary schedule the same way, if they wanted.

This way, if a state is 60% republican, there is still incentive for them to get out the vote for 61% republican so they can bump up their state in the primary schedule.

Also: Rotate all the states (even the big ones) through an early schedule so that everyone gets access at some point to the front line.


Let each state bid when they want their primary to take place. The earlier the primary, the fewer the delegates they control according to some logarithmic or steep curve formula.

Second thing is the order of the primaries should be determined by the percentage of republicans in the last vote. The higher the %pubbie, the sooner the state appears on the primary schedule, with a mix of big & little states and our staunchest republican states get to go FIRST.

I’m steaming mad at the traitorous scum who run the GOP. Let’s take the gloves off. . .Mutt isn’t an electable moderate he’s a POS liberal. If he has any values why has the guy flipped and flopped? He’s smart enough to spew out some conservative talk so people who desperately need to believe they have a dog in the fight will delude themselves about what he really is.

Honestly, if the gov’t isn’t turning this thing around, why not just floor the thing? Mutt & Co. weren’t going to do squat but possibly slow the collapse down a little. Why bother? Now conservatives are to blame. They don’t like you and now it’s time for you not to like them. I don’t believe the GOP will ever change but if there’s a slight chance they will, it’ll be because people stop feeding them.

Support this website because it might be one of the last places to get actual news. Support TP candidates and hold them accountable for their voting record if/when they get elected. If the GOP send you anything asking for a donation reply and tell them to never contact you again. Play time is over. I’ll show some discipline and stop there.
