Karl Rove has declared war* on the Tea Party Movement. Our response? BRING IT!
Tea Party EMail | 2/4/2012 | Tea Party Staff

Posted on 02/04/2013 7:30:12 AM PST by IbJensen

Establishment Republicans like Karl Rove has diluted what is supposed to be the conservative principles and message of the Republican Party. In a misguided attempt to 'appeal to moderates', Rove and his ilk have alienated conservatives within the Republican Party and sent the Democrats a clear message. They have no spine.

Rove has some nerve attacking a movement that infused the right with such enthusiasm that it gave the Republican Party its biggest gains in 2010. If he wants to point the finger of blame at anyone, he needs only look in the mirror for it was Rove that was the primary driver in Bush's becoming the second biggest spender of all time, right behind Barack Obama. This caused the Republican Party to lose all credibility for fiscal conservatism in 2006, paving the way for Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and eschewing in Barack Obama and the freedom sucking ObamaCare.

This is war, my fellow Patriots. It is shameful that we are not only at war with the Progressive Democrat Party whose objective is to 'fundamentally transform America' and wipe away the death, sweat, and tears that were paid by those that came before us so that we might have freedom. But now, RINO Rove has made it plainly evident that he lacks commitment to the principles of a constitutionally limited government, personal responsibility, fiscal sanity, and freedom by declaring war on a group of every day Americans who only want to preserve the America that our founders left for us for the generations to come. Help us fight Karl Rove in showing him that the Tea Party Movement is not going anywhere HERE.

Does Rove believe that Americans should be enslaved to a government that views their hard earned money as belonging to government first? Does Rove believe that government should have the power to decide which guns we should be allowed to own and have the power to limit our Second Amendment rights? Does Rove believe that Americans should be silenced and shamed from fighting for the freedoms that are guaranteed and promised to us within the Constitution? That is precisely the message that he is sending by declaring war on the good people within the Tea Party Movement.

Ladies and gentlemen, we must not let this stand! We must band together to send a message to Karl Rove that America is worth fighting for; the Constitution is worth standing for; our freedoms are worth every single stance, word, and action that we take to maintain. Unlike Karl Rove, we are not funded by millionaires and billionaires. Our funding comes in the average amount of $43 from every day moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, and singles who have a common bond....a belief in the United States of America and a desire to fight for her. Please help us fight establishment Republicans like Karl Rove who see you as a threat.

I'm sick and tired of Carl Rove and his establishment Republicrat rantings. Fox has him on so often that I have stopped watching Hannity because he thinks Rove and LIEberman are God's gift to 'Conservatism.' Neither are conservatives. One is a fat cat party guy while the other is a left-wing socialist who is weak on everything but Israel.

I am sick of seeing/hearing this rove guy. Just got an email from Rand Paul looking for donations to RandPac. Anyone know anything about this group? He and SarahPac may be my first political donations.

McConnell, Cornyn, Alexander, Collins, Cochrane, Enzi, and Graham need to be primaried. And strong conservatives need to be chosen for the open seats in WV, GA and IA and strong conservatives against democrats Hagen, Begich, Landrieu, Johnson, Pryor, Franken, Warner, Shaheen and any other democrat.

No more Allens, Rehbergs, Thompsons, Lingles, Browns, Macks, or Wilsons. More establishment picks lost last time than conservative picks!

Karl Rove is one of the worst things that ever happened to the G.O.P.
Dump him, or die!

We will never unify under "Establishment Republicans" .
"Establishment Republicans" have more in common with the Democrats, than they do with Conservatives.
The weak candidates are "Establishment Republicans", weak on national security, amnesty for illegals, abortion, and government spending.
"Establishment Republicans" scream "COMPROMISE".
And people who study the Bible know that COMPROMISE almost always leads to destruction.
These "Establishment Republicans" are being weeded out, one by one, and slowly but surely, the TEA Party is taking over.

Someone once said [We're] 'Not victims of "the Establishment." '
I disagree.
I ask you again: It WAS Mitt Romney, leader of the "Establishment Republicans"
and it WAS the "Establishment Republicans" who funded all those negative ads against Conservatives.

So conservatives, the BASE of the Republican Party, WERE ' victims of "the Establishment." '

Take a good long look at where "Establishment Republicans" ALWAYS take us.

Perhaps Rove is still mad at Romney for not winning? And mitt didn’t tell him yet that he is not a conservative nor part of any the tea party but the ABO certainly worked on those suckers - mission accomplished.

My question for rovian moderates is this.

Why do you continue to try moderating the already comatose GOP while the democrats goose step into full on fascism completely unchecked?

Exactly what side are you on?

Rand Paul is a staunch CONSERVATIVE, and you need to check out his web site or you can google RandPac to find out more about it. This man is not afraid to stand up and speak out for We the People. He is often on Mark Levin's program, and I receive emails from his office daily detailing what he is currently fighting for on our behalf, when the vote for his various proposed bills are scheduled, and what he needs us to do to help him by way of phone calls, emails, etc. He will then email me the results his his proposed bill, (he explains them in full, no doubt about what he is proposing and where he stands) after they are voted upon, and tells me what his next step will be.

This guy is solid and a patriot. Please check him out and donate.

In a misguided attempt to 'appeal to moderates'

I think it's less that he is trying to appeal to moderates than that he is himself a moderate, and is trying to mold the party to his tastes. It's not like he's a conservative acting pragmatically; he's a lib at heart.

If America HAD LISTENED to Pres. Reagan,
America would NOT be in peril today.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party
 over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged
 to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support.
Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates
wouldn't make any sense at all.""

--  President Ronald Reagan

Yoah Karl,

How many Millions did your PAC waste in 2012?
Why would anyone believe a word you have to say.

Go Home Karl, your a sore Loser. Conservatives are tired of listening to your BS.

PS Take your friends with you.

Some estimates are the Rove made 60 to 100 million
dollars by fleecing donations that SHOULD have gone
to ads. He belongs in prison.

Karl Rove is living proof that it is absolutely impossible to polish a turd, no matter how the Republican elite establishment tries.

I read on here that Hannity is STILL having him on his show and introducing him as “The Architect.”

About Senate Conservatives Fund
Electing true conservatives to the U.S. Senate
SCF is a grassroots organization dedicated to electing strong conservative leaders to the United States Senate. We do not support liberal Republicans and we’re not affiliated with the Republican Party or any of its campaign committees.

SCF seeks to bring bold conservative leadership to Washington by supporting candidates who have the courage to fight for the timeless conservative principles of limited government, strong national defense, and traditional family values.

Our goal is to enact policies that will restore America’s greatness. Therefore, we only support candidates who have the courage to:

Stop Spending
Congress must be forced to cut spending. SCF candidates support a constitutional amendment to balance the federal budget without raising taxes.

Repeal ObamaCare
President Obama’s health care takeover is set to destroy American medicine and bankrupt our country. SCF candidates support the full repeal of this dangerous law.

Enforce Immigration
The federal government has failed to enforce our nation’s immigration laws. SCF candidates support real border enforcement and oppose all forms of amnesty.

Defend the 2nd Amendment
The 2nd Amendment protects our freedom to keep and bear arms. SCF candidates oppose all efforts to eliminate or restrict this right.

Ban Bailouts
Bailouts force taxpayers to reward failure and punish success. SCF candidates oppose bailouts and believe corporations should be forced to compete.

End Earmarks
Congressional earmarks are a gateway drug to higher spending. SCF candidates support a permanent ban on earmarks to break Washington’s addiction to pork.

Protect Life
Americans should not be forced to fund activities they find morally objectionable. SCF candidates oppose taxpayer funding for abortion.

Adopt Term Limits
Our country is being destroyed by career politicians. SCF candidates support a constitutional amendment establishing congressional term limits.

Read more about our endorsement process.

SCF helps candidates by raising support from thousands of freedom-loving Americans across the country, and by running hard-hitting radio and television ads in key battleground states. In the 2010 election cycle, SCF helped elect five conservative standouts: Pat Toomey (PA), Marco Rubio (FL), Rand Paul (KY), Mike Lee (UT), and Ron Johnson (WI). In 2012, SCF helped elect three more principled conservatives: Ted Cruz (TX), Jeff Flake (AZ), and Deb Fischer (NE).

SCF members live in every state and come from all walks of life. They love America and don’t want to see liberal policies destroy it. SCF members know that change in Washington means changing the people we send there, and they know that building a conservative majority in the U.S. Senate is critical to saving our country.

I just discovered Rand Paul will be the keynote speaker at the Lincoln Day dinner here in Palatine, IL. I am definitely going to see what he has to say. He has been on a tear lately.

Unfortunately, RINO Kirk will be hosting the event. Maybe I can get a minute with him and tell him to get back on track and stop playing nice with the Democrats.

Dumping FOX and their efforts to act as our blood pressure injector is step one, for me at least, in leaving the Establishment.

Losing election after election forever, while at least standing upright, is preferable to the frog water-warming going on at FOX every night.

Rove & Company have already given conservatives an open invitation to leave the Company, in the form of a clarion call, and are now engaging in action similar to open banishment.

How many times do we have to be shown that the Tea Party is the only banner of unity available to us that repels Karl Marx Rove and unifies us?

The Tea Party needs some teeth, and leaders who are not already bought by either celebrity incomes and political machines. Grassroots need to measure action and not BS and rhetoric, leading us absolutely nowhere since Obama skated in, in November, 2008.

These individual PACS are a ruse, for elevating individuals, raising their profiles, keeping their individual careers afloat, rather than doing a dang thing meaningful for the cause, or for the conservativecandidates.

Both sides do it. Conservatives do it. We’re being worked over, right now.
