US Chamber of Commerce

Karl Rove & The GOP Socialists

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

Karl Rove (i.e., architect of the American Crossroads SuperPAC), the US Chamber of Commerce, and the Washington GOP Establishment have declared war on the Reaganite conservative base of the Republican Party.

Chamber's War on Right Is So WRONG

Quin Hillyer, National Review Online

If US Chamber strategist Scott Reed really wants "no loser candidates" and "no fools on our ticket," then he should recuse himself. It takes a truly foolish Repub. consultant to declare war on the GOP’s most energized troops; the same fool who advised R's to work for gun control and who ran the incompetent '96 Dole campaign.

Chamber Spends $50Mill to Retain Unpopular Congress

Daniel Horowitz, Red State

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce plans to spend at least $50 million to "support establishment, business-friendly candidates in primaries and the general election, with an aim of trying to win a Republican Senate majority." They're taking on the Tea Party and fighting to keep incumbents of history's most unpopular Congress in office.

Crony Capitalists Seek Protection

Angelo M. Codevilla, Library of Law and Liberty

Mitch McConnell confessed to big business bureaucrats that he and other Establishment R's want to remain their link to gov't money and favors. He asked them to open their wallets lest his kind be overwhelmed by Tea Party conservatives — the real threats to the gov't spending and regulations by which big business thrives.

Re-Branding the Republican Party

John Fonte, National Review Online

It is time to reexamine the relationship between big business and the American center-right. Can the GOP be re-branded from the party of big business to the party of the little guy? 

US Chamber Will Be Involved in GOP Primaries

Breitbart News Staff

It's no surprise that establishment Republican backers the US Chamber are getting more involved in 2014 GOP primaries. They've waged war on Tea Party conservative candidates (and their political affairs program is headed by a former RNC staffer). 

New Battlefront Emerges in GOP Civil War

Seth McLaughlin, The Washington Times

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce's new push to get involved in Repub. primaries by defending incumbents against tea party challengers could actually make it easier to unseat them, according to the head of the influential Club for Growth.

Don’t Buy Karl Rove’s B.S.

Why are Karl Rove and his establishment Republican patrons apparently faltering, while the allegedly unsophisticated amateurs of the Tea Party are building on their grassroots base to raise a national war chest?

Amnesty and Paul Ryan's Presidential Ambitions

Along with Paul Ryan’s fine personal qualities comes a penchant for granting deference to the interests of the establishment GOP’s corporate paymasters and thereby alienating the two blocks of voters Republicans must have to win: Reagan Democrats and Tea Party movement voters. To arm yourself intellectually for the battle over amnesty and illegal immigration, watch the videos in our “Short Course” on amnesty and immigration and be sure to sign our "no amnesty" petition. 

Big Biz to TeaParty: Outta the Way

Lawrence Delevingne, CNBC

McAuliffe bested tea party-backed Cuccinelli partially because some conservative business donors wouldn't give to the GOP campaign—or even switched sides. The MSM says that biz people are fed up with the "activist wing of the GOP," a trend that'll have broad implications for 2014 midterms.

The Betrayal of Ken Cuccinelli

The betrayal of Ken Cuccinelli by the Republican establishment and many of Virginia’s nominally Republican business community leaders is reflective of the precedent the Republican establishment set in their treatment of Barry Goldwater. When an establishment Republican gains a nomination for office the Republican leadership demands that conservatives close ranks with establishment Republicans and support the nominee. However, when a conservative gains a nomination, establishment Republicans are, without consequence, free to criticize the nominee and to do everything they can to undercut the conservative’s campaign.

GOP War Rages in AL

Lara Seligman, The Hill

Amid a big effort by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to secure a win for former state Sen. Bradley Byrne (an estab. Repub.) in the deep-red AL01, polls show his race against conservative underdog Dean Young is a toss-up.

Chamber Shuns Tea Party in AL

Erick Erickson, Red State

The US Chamber of Commerce is spending $185,000.00 to help estab. Repub. Bradley Byrne, who's running for the AL01 House seat. They want credit for repudiating the Tea Party even in Alabama. 

US Chamber's Amnesty Pressure Mounts

Neil Munro, Daily Caller

Business and progressive groups rallied at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Oct. 29 to reassure Speaker John Boehner that he’ll get their political support if he schedules a major vote on immigration.

BigBiz Targets Tea Party

Patrice Hill, The Washington Times

The recent fiscal crisis has opened a major rift between the tea party wing of the GOP and business groups that traditionally have backed Republicans, with many business leaders now vowing to get involved more in GOP primaries to try to counter insurgent candidates. Tea party leaders are defiant, saying they will not change course despite criticism from the U.S.

US Chamber CEO Slams Cruz

Laura Litvan, Bloomberg News

“If you’re going to rush to the net all the time, you better have a lot of movement to the left and right,” Tom Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, said of Cruz’s Obamacare approach, adding that more ideological members of Congress often soften their stances over time. “He hasn’t shown he can do that yet.”

Big Business Wants A Divided GOP – You Can Stop Them

Big Business keeps the Republican establishment alive with its tons of money, even though everyone can see that what’s happening in Washington – the spending and the growth of government – is unsustainable. The limited government conservative grassroots must take a stand against it.
