This individual reported that on the Oct. 30 fundraising call American Crossroads’ Karl Rove and Steven J. Law held with McConnell, “McConnell specifically talked about Mike Lee by name, specifically talked about Ted Cruz by name, and he specifically talked about the Tea Party by name,” the donor told Breitbart News in response to a story Rove’s and McConnell’s teams have purported shows otherwise.
“McConnell did tie it all together with the Senate Conservatives Fund with which McConnell had a major problem,” the donor said. “The Senate Conservatives Fund was just one part of a broader attack.”
Tea Party Express chairwoman Amy Kremer said it does not matter whether those "bullies" and "punch them in the nose" remarks McConnell made on the call were specifically aimed at Senate Conservatives Fund or whether they were general to the grassroots movement; the conclusion Tea Partiers should take away is the same.
“An attack on SCF or any Tea Party organization or Ted Cruz or Mike Lee is an attack on all of us,” Kremer said in a phone interview Friday afternoon.
This is nothing new. They continue to attack us and I don’t understand why when Harry Reid just invoked the nuclear option yesterday and Obamacare is crumbling at the seams and we should have them on the run. Why are they now attacking the Tea Party movement? They need to remember that John Boehner and the Republicans would not be in control of the House if it weren’t for the Tea Party movement and the conservative grassroots movement. I know that Leader McConnell is up for re-election but the Tea Party movement is strong in his state. There is already a Tea Party Senator in the state of Kentucky that defeated the establishment candidate in the primary. So it’s silly to go and attack Tea Partiers and conservative grassroots because they’ve already proven themselves strongly there in the state of Kentucky as well as the state of Texas and other places across the country. You cannot win without us. To continue to attack us is like, it’s just ridiculous. At the end of the day, we all know what it’s about: It’s about power, control and money. It’s what makes Washington tick. The grassroots outside is having a huge influence in them losing them, and we all know that Washington doesn’t like to lose control.
Tea Party Patriots national coordinator Jenny Beth Martin concurs.
“Why would Senator Mitch McConnell want to ‘punch in the nose’ the millions of patriotic moms, grandmoms and veterans who stand up for America through the Tea Party and groups like the Senate Conservatives Fund?” Martin said in an emailed statement to Breitbart News. "The people supporting SCF are the same people going to Tea Party meetings and rallies across the country. We elect our representatives to represent us, not to threaten us with physical violence during secret meetings with Karl Rove’s friends."
Why would we want Mitch McCommie to win??? Matt Bevin is our T.P. candidate we should be backing him and getting the Rino out of office ...JMO>
We need to leave the GOP, become a new party: The American Dream Party, The Freedom Party, or The Tea Party!
I am stopping all of my donations to the GOP today!
I stopped donating to the RNC long ago because the RINO's get the money. However, I do donate to Rand Paul.
McConnell just doesn't seem to get it! His day is done--he was a good, strong, hard-hitting leader back in the mid-1950s, and did his job very well! However, his mid-20th Century way of doing things is not the way things should be done now, and, as was shown with Reid and the "Nuclear Option" last week, it was the YOUNG Democrats who carried the day--not the old timers!
The same is true of the Establishment Republicans--their day is done, and they really should step aside to allow the younger generation take over with 21st Century ideas for the 21st Century!
www.mattbevin.com lets support our own... let us get the old lifers out of office and take our chances of starting anew.. this country is getting dangerously close to an internal conflict, you can think its not but it is getting really close. The people are fed up with the politicians not doing a damn thing to fix what is wrong.. all words and no action. So I suggest people wake up... I was blown away when my wife told me the Tea Party was endorsing Mitch McConnel ,, if this is what the Tea Party is coming too ... well it will be the end of my support here too...
