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."
hopefully, mitch wont be in the game much longer......
There is a HUGE difference between being a Republican and being a Conservative Patriot. When will people figure this out once and for all?
If it walks like a RINO, looks like a RINO and sounds like a RINO, it probably is a RINO!!!! Or maybe more accurately labeled, a communist democrat "lite"
Spot on, Oren. Can't add a thing to this statement.
Then the GOP is in kahoots with the dem/socialist/oblameaists/oligharchy regime! Exactly what Savage has been saying all along, there is no "opposition party", 2 CARD MONTY! Look at who is stacked in the regime in the places of power, need I say anything else?
Right again Oren, IMHO That pretty much sums it up.
Sounds like the ruling class mind at work, God didn't ordain you we elected you.
McConnell is History!!!!!!
God I hope so!!!
We seem to have a bunch of "little Fuhrers" now running around in the GOP. All I can say is "Keep pushing you RINO clowns and ye shall receive". The man is right you cannot win without us. So go ahead and make my day.
Roget that Oren. Seems to be the norm these days. Power above all; zero actual representation.
The regime in dc gives us the bad name. All in their socialist/puppetist play book. Like I've said before, the blind sheeple/followers of their leader in dc. Look at what you have now, since the filibuster rules were changed, oblamea and his minions can fasttrack ANYTHING RIGHT THROUGH THE SENATE. Oblamea's supreme court, aka oligharchy regime entity is now being stacked with who he wants, yes judges, yes sir oblamea, anything you say. Next there will be an executive order by their illegal declaring the US Constitution, obsolete, null, and void, because oblamea's laws say so!
We all need to start sending whatever we can each month to the Senate Conservative fund so the by Nov. 2014 they will have a chance against the big money donors.
