GOP Establishment's War on Tea Party Comes to Texas
Breitbart ^ | 6 Jan 2014 | Tony Lee

Posted on 01/07/2014 7:08:34 AM PST by SoConPubbie


The Republican establishment's war against the Tea Party has come to Texas. According to a report in the Dallas Morning News, "Some of Texas’ biggest business trade groups are moving to counter tea party and anti-government forces that have dominated recent Republican primaries."

The Texas Future Business Alliance, described as a "mix of 10 major business groups, including the chemical industry, bankers, builders and contractors," is reportedly "sending out mailers and providing other support on behalf of GOP candidates" who favor more government spending and want to take on the Tea Party. 

. .

Michael Quinn Sullivan, who is the president of the fiscal-hawk group Empower Texans, "said the Texas Future Business Alliance" is an "anti-Ted Cruz movement [that] is nothing but a group of big-money interests wanting taxpayer dollars to flow into their pockets." Designating them a "fake group," he also said they "want people who will vote for cronyism and corporate welfare.”

Though these business groups claim the Tea Party is swinging the legislature too far in their quest for fiscal conservatism, Sullivan said the notion that the Tea Party does not care about government is "ridiculous," arguing that they only want hard-earned taxpayer dollars spent prudently. 

On the national level, groups like the Chamber of Commerce have indicated they are about to spend $50 million to try to destroy the Tea Party, largely because the Tea Party opposes amnesty for illegal immigrants and the corporations that have broken federal immigration laws to hire them. Karl Rove, who has his fingers in Texas politics, is reloading against the Tea Party on the national level as well. Furthermore, groups like former Rep. Steven LaTourette's (R-OH) Main Street Partnership are so hell-bent on destroying the Tea Party that the legality of their activities is being called into question.

"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton

 

"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

 

"A thing moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." - Thomas Paine 1792

 

"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams

 

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Cornyn is the first domino in the primary season. If he’s defeated or forced into a runoff, then that’ll set a trend for the year.

So they are working to ensure him a big victory to establish momentum for the moderates and to undermine Tea Party momentum.

I went to that link you posted and while Breibart created their title to their editorial “Chamber of Commerce to Spend $50 Million to Crush Tea Party.”

In that editorial the actual quote they cite from Chamber has a different tone to it :

Our No. 1 focus is to make sure, when it comes to the Senate, that we have no loser candidates,” said U.S. Chamber of Commerce top political strategist Scott Reed. “That will be our mantra: No fools on our ticket.”

The statist crony rentseekers are out in force to protect Cornyn. That should tell you all you need to know about what Cornyn will do if re-elected (cf. also McCain, Hatch).

John Cornyn claims to be the 2nd most conservative member of the Senate.
Yet, as Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee he
hand-selected these "Republican" candidates:
  • Arlen Specter - Democrat
  • Charlie Crist - Democrat
  • Lincoln Chafee - Democrat
  • Lisa Murkowski - Independent
Also, when he had a chance to stop ObamaCare by supporting Ted Cruz' filibuster
he FAILED
and hid behind a meaningless vote later.

Support Dwayne Stovall to oust John Cornyn in TX

This photo bothers the GOPe very highly.

If Sarah steps in for Stockman, which will probably be after the runoff, we'll see another Cruz v. Dewhurst redux.

I read every label on every item (even if it is just one ONION!) and will try NOT to buy anything not made or grown in the USA. A LOT of times I have to do without.

If I really have to get something in order to survive another day, these are the rules:

1 NOTHING from China
2. Nothing from islamic Countries, especially pakistan.
3. Nothing from Mexico
4. Nothing from countries who outwardly despise the USA

This involves clothing, Underwear, Food, cosmetics and healthcare products, vehicles, furniture, musical instruments, literature, appliances, household items, etc.

Yard sales are good sources of household items that were once made in the USA, helps our neighbors and recycles as well.

I’ve been doing this for over 10 years, and have survived nicely!

Support Your Local Tea party!
Buy American!
Happy New Year!

I've seen ads run, non-stop, on Breitbart slamming Steve Stockman. When you look at the tiny print, it says the ads are paid for by Texans for a Conservative Majority.

They're not really Conservative...and, they're connected to John Cornyn.

Their ads leads you to a ShadySteveStockman site. It's funded, primarily, by the late Bob Perry and beer magnate John Nau III, CEO of Houston-based Silver Eagle Distributors. They're pulling out all the stops...and showing who/what they most fear.

Here's an article about this faux *Conservative* group...

The gopers have no idea what's coming at them.

Even if they win the primary, they'll lose in the general and all their big money pals will have wasted their money.

and then the big money boys will be at the mercy of the classwarriors that hate their stinkin' guts.

About the only thing we accomplished in this last generation of a conservative nature is to lower their taxes and look what happens. Backstabbers. Until the border is secure and we hqave a fair hearing from the corporate media no more tax cuts for corporations or the rich in fact until we have accomplished that we should collude with the Dem’s and hold them responsibile for raising their taxes. After all that is what the GOP establishement does(collude with the donks againt us).

Start your own vocal group Be your own precinct captain The piece below is designed to be printed up and passed around your precinct and your friends and neighbors as a half sheet flyer. On the face (REVERSE SIDE)or below the slogan you can put the name of the candidate you favor and the election dates...EXCELLENT FOR SLIPPING UNDER WINDSHIELD WIPERS ON CARS PARKED IN KEY PARKING LOTS CHURCHES, RALLY SITES....

Did you know the Democrat party voted to remove any reference to God at their 2012 national convention ? And when they decided it was a mistake and unpolitical they rammed the change to put it back in like they voted for Obamacare.But delegates booed the decision. The Democrat is not the party of JFK or even FDR. It’s a queer marriage between socialists and “progressives” They are now Demo-Coms.

We must defeat Cornyn! We gave a HUGE message when Ted Cruz defeated establishment candidate David Dewhurst.

Cornyn has proven himself a chameleon and a traitor to the conservative cause.

Agree! And, since Sen Cruz hasn't endorsed John Cornball...imagine if Ted Cruz steps in for Stockman, too.

Speaking of...I've not been seeing any Stockman ads/signs, etc. I cannot tell if his campaign is taking off and doing well...other than by the anti-Stockman ads, paid for by Cornball associates.

"Some of Texas’ biggest business trade groups are moving to counter tea party and anti-government forces that have dominated recent Republican primaries."

I think that right there is proof enough that the Republican Party no longer represents the will of the American People. It's just another form of fascism. The Democrats are aligned with their special interests taking their money to create policy, the Republican's are doing the same thing.

Go look up the word "fascism." We're living under it -- it no longer matters which party is in power.

It's time to remind these bastards in D.C. that they work for us -- not the other way around!

It's time to strike fear in their hearts.

The great thing about Texas primaries is the runoff! The more candidates the better. Phase 1 is about stopping cornball from getting 50% of the vote. I wish your candidate (and all the others except the incumbant) the best of luck!

As I understand the article this group is focusing on state legislative races
not Federal races. Now that doesn’t mean that some of their focus may become
a part of some Federal races. Mar 4, 2014 isn’t but 55 days hence until
voters go to the polls in the Texas primaries. Big money will be spending
a lot of money soon I suspect.

Article snip;
The Texas Future Business Alliance — a mix of 10 major business groups,
including the chemical industry, bankers, builders and contractors —
is sending out mailers and providing other support on behalf of GOP
candidates who have supported water infrastructure development,
highway construction and education spending

At the bottom of this article in the DMN is a listing of some of the State
Legislators that possibly this group is going to support. It includes
two State Senators and six State Represenatives.

The GOPe-Money Boi alliance will never be able to understand that, from their attacks on us.

Uncle Sugar has used all the alphabet agencies from the IRS to EPA to strike fear into citizens and even altering the outcome of an election.

Short of revolution, they will never fear us. They take our hard earned money and use it against us. These people (with the exception of a few) lust for money, power and control.

Pompous oligarchs the likes of Boehner, Ried, McConnell, McCain, Pelosi look down their noses at the American people as if we are some sort of inferior lower class subjects in need of direction and counsel.

Grrrrrrrrr! If they only knew the powder keg they sit atop. We keep on trying to bring about change through election, but I think freedom loving Americans are seeing their patience run thin.

While I'm no fan of Steve LaTourette, Karl Rove, and their cronies, this was a poorly written article. It reads like one of those idiot emails I get asking me for money.

What races are being targeted? They aren't targeting Cruz, despite what they suggest. Why? Because Cruz just got elected in 2012. He's not up until 2018.

I think they are targeting the Stockman vs Cornyn race.

As I’ve said before — I am ready to bolt from being a registered Republican. First of all, I live in NYC where the GOP is barely existent. The GOP establishment are a bunch of whores. OK you have good guys out there in Congress like Cruz, Issa and Rand Paul but if anything gets going —Tea party and constitutional libertarian minded folks are going to have to get seriously radical. The Libertarian Party per se can be a little freaky. I enjoy various magazines and websites such as Cato and Reason but I am not ready to join the Libertarian Party. Any answers?

As you say this article rambles all over the political spectrum. But
as I understand it this is a group of various organizations
banning together to promote State Legislators that support spending money
on State projects that they are involved in such as infrastructure,
education, etc.

From the article:
The Texas Future Business Alliance — a mix of 10 major business groups,
including the chemical industry, bankers, builders and contractors —
is sending out mailers and providing other support on behalf of GOP
candidates who have supported water infrastructure development,
highway construction and education spending

At the bottom of this link is a list of some of the State Legislators
that they may support.
