War: Chamber of Commerce gearing up to take out conservative incumbents in the House next year

Via Ace, if you want to make an amnesty omelette, you have to break a few eggs.

What a nifty illustration of Ted Cruz’s point today about the GOP caucus being captured by K Street and corporate interests.

The influential and well-heeled business group is already eyeing several races, but the plans are still in their infancy and the targets have not yet been decided upon, according to more than a half dozen Republican sources on K Street and Capitol Hill.

The group’s apparent new willingness to engage in hand-to-hand political combat to take out sitting Republicans would represent a major shift for the business community, which has largely shied away from targeting sitting lawmakers…

“Last year, we were very aggressive in primaries and the general, and we intend to be again,” Holmes said. “It’s not a change in policy as much as it is a recommitment to last cycle’s successful approach.” She added that the candidate it backed won in 14 of the 15 races the Chamber got involved in last year…

“The fact that there are still members of the Republican House that are obstructionist, isolationists that would be willing to shut down the government only reinforces that the Chamber and the business community, for that matter, will double down on this winning formula,” Caldeira said.

This strategy isn’t entirely new. They started talking about targeting tea partiers in primaries in late 2013 and followed through in last year’s midterms, as noted in the excerpt. The difference last year was that they stuck to open seats rather than going after incumbents. Evidently they’ve decided now that “progress” towards the dream of renewing the Ex-Im bank and passing a gigantic amnesty ensuring all the cheap legal labor they could possibly want isn’t happening fast enough. It’s simply not sufficient to fill vacancies in the House with corporatist business-class Republicans. To move their agenda, they need to start replacing some of the people whose seats are currently occupied.

It seems that the Republican Party is not only being run by progressives, but now the commerce class is fighting to get their share of power! Profits are now more important than the average class of American citizens? The Chamber that they need us as customers much more than we need them as sellers of goods to us. We have the whole world to buy from boys and girls.If the U.S. Chamber of Commerce wants loyal from us then they need to realize that replacing American workers with cheap illegal alien labor is NOT going to win any new consumers...trust me.

The mighty CoC backed bamacare 100% and Obama in both elections.

Yah   Michael....I bought a new gmc pick up 2 weeks ago.....guess where its made....FREEKING MEXICO....If had know that may have just kept the old one.....

This not so august body has drank the kool aid, by the gallon. Obviously they don't realize that they are cutting their own throats in the short and long run?

Please note: the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has publicly announced many times that it is mistake to assume it is a political wing of the Republican party. It is a bipartisan, 501(c)(4) organization. As a bipartisan, 501(c)(4) organization, it supports and promotes its own political agenda to and for the benefit of its members of either political party.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has understood Tea party supporters are essentially no threat to their political goals and can easily be challenged at the local and primary levels, which is exactly what they are announcing is their goal. They so little fear Tea party political prowess, they are now openly challenging Tea party supporters to do their best against them, as they will be doing their best against us.

Don't you just love the way the Chamber of Commerce talks about "taking out" conservative incumbants?

It begs the question:  by what methods?  Whose handbook - the mafia's?. Or, perhaps, the 'rules' for  radicals cut in the Alinsky mold, for taking our guys out: rule no.1:  ridicule and mock.

Rule #2.  Lie, distort, disparage, deceive, discredit. 

Seems to me it's time to teach the Chamber of Commercial Horrors a thing or two about how democracy is supposed to work in America. Seems also to me that Donald Trump is just the guy to do it. We have some  other really great candidates, but they may be too vulnerable to retribution from the liberal 'mob.' to survive to the nomination.It's going to take someone special, a real fighter, to overcome the Chamber's mindset.

Alexandra - 

Please note that this CofC discussion talks mostly of sitting Conservative politicians at levels beneath the candidates for the presidency.  

Donald Trump is not going to be much of a factor in those positions on the ballot.  If the CofC targets their funding at specific local-level, and state elections, there will not be many Conservative campaigns at those levels that can compete with the funding that the CofC will throw at them.  

It is the same strategy that the 'Bloomies' and 'Mommies' discovered to be successful in the gun-control battles.  

Robert, I'm quite aware of what the discussion is about.  the remarks I threw in about Trump were gratuitous comments, but i couldn't resist.

Why not offer some advice where it might be helpful - like:  how would you overcome the CofC's stranglehold on funding at local and state elections? Giving up is not an option. 

So now we know where McConnell gets his "back Bone"      He answers only to the Chamber of Commerce.    Over the last dz years we have seen the C OF C change to a far left /anti constitution group   Could Geo Soros have bought them too.   It seems the C of C do not care who wins.. only they control them.

Add the chamber of commerce to the enemies list; this includes all democrats, rinos, federal bureaucrats and lobbyists.

THE COMMUNIST CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND HORRORS SHOULD BE DISBANDED AND GIVEN NEW JOBS LIKE HIKING TRAIL SWEEPERS. WITH BUFFALO CHIP SCOOPERS.AND NO RUBBER GLOVES.

I JUST FEEL FUNNY DONATING TEN DOLLARS TO HIS CAMPAIGN. HOW I WISHED NEWT HAD DEBATED OBAMA BIN LENIN INSTEAD OF MITTENS ROMNEY. OBAMA WOULD HAVE MOVED BACK TO HIS SOVIET UNION.

CONFUSION:   Pelosi Says Constitution Spells Out ‘Two Co-Equal Branches’ Of Government

No Nancy. No.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must be taking night classes at the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Government.

Pelosi, the 79-year-old third-highest ranking official in the U.S. government, was speaking to the Center for American Progress today when she mistakenly said there are “two co-equal branches” of government, before correcting herself to say there are three.

Watch:

“First of all, let me just say, we take an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” Pelosi said.

“Democrats take that oath seriously, and we are committed to honoring our oath of office. I’m not sure that our Republican colleagues share that commitment, and I’m not sure that the president of the United States does, too,” she claimed.

“So, in light of the fact that the beauty of the Constitution is a system of checks and balances— two co-equal branches— three co-equal branches of government,” she corrected with a laugh.

“A check and balance on each other,” she continued. “Con— Constitution spells out the pri— pa, uh, the duties of Congress and one of them is oversight of the president of the United States, another one of them is to impeach the president of the United States,” Pelosi said.

In November, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rallied supporters on Facebook to pitch in and help Democrats take back “all three chambers of Congress.”

“…the Progressive movement works and it wins in all districts…If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress– three chambers of government…,” she said during the virtual appearance.

She clarified that she meant the “presidency, the Senate and the House.”

According to the Constitution, the three branches of government are the legislative, executive and judicial.
