Establishment Republicans

"Dump Trump" Anger Sparks Write-in Campaign Against Anti-Trump RINO Martha Roby

In the recent "Dump Trump" movement, a correlation is apparent... follow the money! The list of prominent names recently dumping Trump could be titled “The Chamber’s Bought and Paid for RINOs.” Now Trump voters are striking back.

Trump's Three Opponents

George Neumayr, American Spectator

Hillary, the weakest Democratic candidate since John Kerry, enjoys protection not only from her party’s establishment and its appointees but also from reporters and Republicans who are rooting for her to win. Trump has three opponents in effect: the Democratic-media annex and his own party’s establishment, which even at this late date is flirting with dump-Trump delegate schemes at the upcoming convention.

The Fourth of July Doesn’t Work on Democrats

Researchers at Harvard University found that celebrating the July 4th holiday commemorating the announcement of the Declaration of Independence may still be serving its intended purpose – promoting patriotism -- and the good news is it only seems to work on Republicans.

Those Sophisticated Clinton Republicans

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The neocon tastemakers gunning for Trump’s defeat view her as a fellow member of the ruling class, confused at times but at least comprehensible. Around the time of her appointment to the State Department, this crowd, conveniently forgetting the radicalism of her Yale days and work for the Children’s Defense Fund, propped her up as a safe member of the establishment. 

Senate GOP To Save O-Care?

Sarah Ferris, The Hill

Establishment GOP fears are mounting over a Supreme Court case that the party has long hailed as its best chance to undo ObamaCare. The Supreme Court will hear arguments Wednesday on a GOP-backed case that threatens to erase healthcare subsidies for 8 million people. The vast stakes are raising alarm among squishy Senate Republicans who increasingly fear a backlash at the polls if their party can’t find a fix.

How Dumb Do The “Gruber Republicans” Behind The CRomnibus Think Voters Are?

Rep. Lynn Jenkins (KS-2) and Martha Roby (AL-2) are just plain lying about their votes on the "CRomnibus." But their constituents aren't buying it and conservatives should call them out, along with any other Republican who voted for the "CRomnibus."

Ted Cruz Was Right, Again

Matthew Vadum, American Thinker

What really infuriates namby-pamby GOP senators is that Cruz forced them to take a public stand on the O's unilateral amnesty. They know that the GOP base is mad as hell over the amnesty, and they don't feel the need to answer to mere hoi polloi. 

The Purveyors of Ted Cruz Derangement Syndrome

Senators Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ), and the other Senate Republican whiners about working on Saturday, are the same Republicans who have some of the worst records for opposing Obama’s nominees. 

Cruz Fights Obamacare Subsidies – GOP Leaders Attack Him

Cruz is right to oppose H. R. 4414, not only on the general policy that revisions to Obamacare should apply to all consumers, but because hidden in the bill is a precedent that undercuts the phony economics of Obamacare and will lead to even greater taxpayer subsidies in the future.

GOP-E's Flores Won't Hold Boehner Accountable

Jonathan Strong, Breitbart

Conservative Leaders Challenge GOP Congress

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

The Conservative Action Project, a group of 40 prominent conservative leaders including CHQ's Richard Viguerie, have documented GOP winners' campaign promises and plan to hold them to those promises.

The 'Do It For Bob Dole' Republicans

Jeffery Lord, American Spectator

Races that were supposed to be push-overs are suddenly nail-biters. How can this be? The Base. The very people who are needed to give money & votes to elect that GOP Senate are balking. Why? Nancy Kassebaum Baker illustrates the GOP's problem.

Boehner: Bush Has 'Real Shot' in '16

Kelly Cohen, Washington Examiner

Boehner applauded Jeb Bush’s ability to “talk about Repub. issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as FL’s governor from 1999-2007. He also called potential GOP-E candidates John Kasich and Rob Portman “great” ones.

Don't Blame Tea Party If R's Don't Take Senate

Judson Phillips, Washington Times

The GOP Estab. got what it wanted & bested the conservative wing. Now they're shocked that conservatives aren't motivated to vote. R's should take the Senate easily. If it doesn’t happen this year, who will the GOP-E blame?

Boehner: Immigration Reform Will Boost Economy

Scott Wong, The Hill

“Immigration reform will help our economy, but you’ve got to secure the border first,” the Republican said after a speech at the conservative think tank American Enterprise Institute. “We’ve got a mess and everyone knows we’ve got a mess. 

Lobbyist Advises GOP to Spend Big, Think Small

Streiff, Red State

What GOP estab. lobbyist and consultant John Feehery is not-so subtly pushing is a program of increased gov't spending that Obama will sign into law. He has editorialized in favor of crony capitalism. He's not interested in the future of the U.S. or the GOP. He's interested in lining his wallet.

NRSC Loves the Senate Conservatives Fund (Or At Least Its Money)

Erick Erickson, Red State

The NRSC, US Chamber, and other GOP-E orgs poured millions into primaries to stop Senate Conservatives Fund gains. NRSC spent so much money trying to protect its incumbents that it now has no money to pick up new seats.
