You have a group that both main political parties hate: the Tea Party.
No, I don’t mean the hucksters who call themselves “The Tea Party” and collect your money to do God knows what with it. I’m referring to the real tea party. The people who having watched the GOP push amnesty under Bush, then push for massive bailouts (also under Bush), and then, the whole mess under a leftist President going into hyper-drive.
I’m referring to the people who made phone calls when they saw what was happening, walked voting precincts and helped the GOP win a House majority in 2010.
We The People.
Well, the Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell, the one you’d think would be hoping that same tea party bunch would give him a majority in the Senate here in 2014, just declared war on that same group of people:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) didn’t merely say Tea Party candidates challenging him and other established Republicans in the 2014 midterm elections don’t pose much of a threat.
McConnell’s prediction is arguably more along the lines of fighting words.
“I think we are going to crush them everywhere,” McConnell told the New York Times. “I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.”
As TheBlaze has extensively reported, McConnell’s most notable opponent is Kentucky businessman Matt Bevin, who is contrasting himself as a true conservative and blasting McConnell’s conservative credentials.
“Mitch McConnell is clearly in trouble in this primary or he wouldn’t be attacking Matt Bevin and declaring war on conservatives,” the Senate Conservatives Fund’s Matt Hoskins said in the Times’ Saturday story.
See, Mitch and his cohorts, they don’t care to stop the train from crashing, as long as they have a comfortable car to ride in until it does.
Remember when your Democrat leaders said the tea party was an “astroturf” movement, created by the Republican Party to “stop progress”? Yeah, well that was bullshit. She was using proven leftist tactics to marginalize a group of people who are obviously not blind to the fact that both parties are spending America into literal oblivion.
How much time do you really think we have left? It’s not enough to cheer your “team” and curse the other guys. Have you, as a Democrat, ever called your representatives and told them to stop the insane spending?
How about this?
Finally, part 4 -
Part IV: Will the Hillary Films Include the Pardon and Clemency Scandals?
To think, they haven’t even gotten to her Senate record, the “Snipergate” fiasco, or Benghazzi, at least not in depth.
No doubt there’ll be another Obama on the 2016 ticket, too.

In that, the GOP refuses to listen to the Smart ones
Over the weekend, some of the smartest Smart Girls I know had a summit in Indianapolis, which, one would think, would be an ideal place for the DC Republican party (seemingly desperate to demonstrate the the so-called “WAR ON WOMEN” is a Democrat-conceived hoax that they themselves are guilty of perpetuating) would want to not only attend, but participate in.
Hell no. They didn’t go:
I understand that everyone is busy right now. I also understand that the Hill Republicans have sort of a love-hate relationship with us grassroots warriors. However, I also understand that the Republicans have a woman problem. Whether that is true or not (and I don’t believe it is) the media has won the “war on women” battle and successfully painted Republicans as having a perceived “women” problem. Well if perception is reality you’re screwed, GOP! Time for damage control. What better way to start than addressing a group of grassroots conservative and libertarian women from across the nation as they all sit in one room?
Excuse me, GOP head honchos but these are the very people you are going to be hitting up for money and time in a few months. You are going to expect these women to walk the precincts for you and (wo)man the call centers and stuff the envelopes. You’re going to ask them for $5, $10, just $15 dollars to help so and so defeat the liberal machine! You’re going to expect us to be out there combatting this ridiculous “war on women” meme when it comes up during the election cycle. You’re going to point proudly to organizations like Smart Girl as proof that Republicans have their fingers on the pulse of women’s issues. In other words…YOU’LL NEED US. Yet you could not find the time or decency to come where we were and remind us that you know we’re there and we’re working for victory.
In other words, the GOP establishment types seem to believe in a “shut up, send us money, and we’ll handle this messy political stuff for you.”
Where the local Indiana GOP did make some gestures, the DC swamp sent nobody
The Indiana Republicans were quite gracious, sending a video message from Gov.Mike Pence and bringing in Lt.Gov. Sue Ellspermann to officially open the Summit weekend. Smart Girl founders Stacy Mott and Teri Christoph assert they sent numerous invitations to nearly every GOP heavyweight on the Hill, including RNC representatives. Not one response. Not one representative took the time to even send a prerecorded message.
Next will come the mass mailers with the cards attached for donations.
Send them back blank, and write SGP13 on them. Then give locally, forget the RNC. Despite the party of Bob (Feelya) Filner (D), and Anthony (Whip It Out) Weiner (D), somehow it’s the Republicans who have an image problem, and will continue to without making an effort to reach out to the people who can make or break them for more than just donations.

At the exact point a conservative black Republican becomes a US Senator
South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley appointed Republican Representative Tim Scott to fill the seat being vacated by the retirement of Sen. Jim DeMint on Monday:
“It is with great pleasure that I am announcing our next U.S. senator to be Congressman Tim Scott,” Haley said. “I am strongly convinced that the entire state understands that this is the right U.S. senator for our state and our country.”
Sen.-designate Scott, 47, will become the only African-American currently serving in the Senate and the first black Republican to serve in the upper chamber since the 1970s. He will also be the first black senator from the South since Reconstruction.
Note on my emphasis in the above paragraph: it was not a Democrat who gave an African-American a chance to represent his/her state in the US Senate, it was a Republican.
It was just September of this year the Huffington Post was lamenting the fact that there would likely be no African-Americans in the Senate for some time to come:
Right now, there are zero. And it will likely remain that way after the 2012 elections, since none of the major Senate candidates are black.
The author goes further to quote a member of the Congressional Black Caucus echoing that lament:
“I frankly think it’s a shame, and I think it is reflective of America sometimes still idling in the past,” said Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), who is black. “There are enormously talented people in all backgrounds.”
Well, now that the Governor of South Carolina is officially appointing one, is there rejoicing and dancing in the streets by Democrats?
Sadly, no. Only racial hate and vitriol. Seems that skin color is only important to Democrats if one holds the “correct” viewpoint politically.
Witness the viciousness and hatred from Democrats:

See, if you’re an African-American in America today, you’re never truly free. You can’t hold views outside those “approved” views sanctioned by leftist Democrats. You’ll never be free to think for yourself, unless you pick your thoughts from a pre-approved list (see Nancy Pelosi for your free copy).
We’ve come so far from the America we were in the 1800s, and even the 1960s, and it seems to go unnoticed by those that lean left:
People don’t appreciate how far we have come as a nation.
An Indian American of Sikh Heritage, married to a Caucasian, as Governor of the most conservative state in the Union, just made Tim Scott the first GOP African American Senator since reconstruction (and amazingly, only the 7th African American Senator ever), in the former home state of Strom Thurmond, after defeating Strom’s son for the House seat in the first place. And conservatives cheered.
Those same conservatives are called “racists” on a daily basis.
Tell me again, who are the real racists here? Looks like they wear the letter (D) to me.

Proving that dead flesh can in fact be reanimated, the Democrats trotted out (or piped-in, as it were) ex President and current irrelevant statesman Jimmy Carter out to sing the Obama theme song [my emphasis below]:
Former President Jimmy Carter delivered a 4-minute video address to the Democratic convention, saying Obama offered a “clear choice” for voters. As Carter’s image beamed into the arena, Republican Mitt Romney’s campaign issued a news release declaring, “Welcome Back, Carter!”
Republicans have tried to tie Obama to Carter, comparing the current unemployment rate of 8.3 percent to the economic “malaise” of the late 1970s. A Romney spokesman said by choosing Carter to appear on the opening night of the convention, Obama “chose a fitting surrogate.”
Considering the tie to Jimmy Carter by the DNC was a godsend to the Republicans, it’s no surprise they already had a video waiting for release.
Well, it’s easy to see why the DNC opted for a video (one they could re-take or alter) rather than letting “Jimmah” loose on stage with an open microphone. Carter tends to say goofy and embarrassing shit:
Come convention time, there’s a tactful and a not-so-tactful way for Presidential campaigns to shield the great American public from members of the party hierarchy they’d rather keep firmly under wraps.
The first, which we shall call the Mitt Romney approach, is to simply ignore them. That’s how, in a snub recently chronicled by Newsweek, Sarah Palin ended up being effectively blackballed from last week’s Republican convention in Tampa.
The second, apparently preferred by Barack Obama, is to invite your embarrassing political relatives along, but hope that no-one notices.
Delegates here in Charlotte will this evening be treated to first a speech by Harry Reid, the party’s power-broking leader in the Senate, and then a video-taped series of remarks by former President Jimmy Carter.

Two pictures have surfaced, showing Obama in two different locations today:
It’s unknown if he plans to meet with Governor Jindal as Mitt Romney and his wife did earlier.
Don’t hate, I’m just the messenger.
If you haven’t heard of Mia Love, it’s because mostly her existence is kept hidden or minimized by the media. Why? Because she’s not only a Republican, but Mormon, and black. See, blacks aren’t allowed to be Republicans, because then they’d be Uncle Toms.
MSNBC even went to far as to cut away from their convention coverage whenever any minority speaker was on stage. Guess it just doesn’t fit the Democrat Party narrative – anyone granted any minority status is expected and required to be a card-carrying Democrat, or face terrible consequences.
Mia Love is the Mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, and is running for Utah’s 4th Congressional district. She was born in Brooklyn to parents from Haiti, and is married to Jason Love with whom she has three kids.
She made her national debut at the Republican National Convention, her speech below is short, but telling.
Telling for me is who the leftist Democrats hold up as their heroines: a woman who complains that her birth control isn’t free, versus a woman of the same age who has a family and works her tail off.
