Yesterday, Bill O’Reilly interviewed President Obama on Fox and asked him about the scandal surrounding the IRS targeting of constitutional conservatives and the Tea Party.
Unsurprisingly, the president took up a defensive position and vehemently countered there is no corruption or targeting. And why would we expect a different response? After all, it’s a “phony scandal.” Funny thing, I’ve actually seen some of the letters sent by the IRS.
Obama may believe there’s no wrongdoing and his administration is doing everything it can to avoid the consequences, but this was not just a few loose cannons.
However, there is another assault on conservatives and the Tea Party coming from “our own side” and the repercussions are reverberating.
As reported by Breitbart.com,
After wasting nearly $325 million during the 2012 election cycle with nothing to show for it and then declaring war on the Tea Party, donations to Karl Rove’s three Crossroads groups decreased by 98% last year, down to just $6.1 combined in 2013. The groups reportedly raised a paltry $6.1 million combined in 2013.
Rove runs Crossroads GPS, American Crossroads, and the new Conservative Victory Project Super PAC, formed this year to counterbalance the influence of Tea Party and conservative grassroots forces in GOP primaries.
I think the name of the new group “Conservative Victory Project” is quite deceptive — oxymoronic actually — and evidences the schism on our side and the GOP establishment’s true fear of losing power and influence to the American people. But if not for the constitutional conservative grassroots, the GOP would not have had a majority in the House of Representatives.
As Breitbart News reports,
Rove’s organization has been so tarnished among the conservative base that candidates fear donors will not contribute to any group associated with him.” In a shrewd maneuver, Rove’s Crossroads network has reloaded with groups that share donors but are technically not affiliated on paper with them. Rove’s groups “are permitted to accept unlimited corporate and individual contributions,” and donations to Crossroads GPS, a nonprofit, are even tax deductible.
We recently reported on Senator Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) address at the Center for American Progress (the George Soros backed progressive organization) attacking the conservative grassroots groups by “redoubling efforts using the IRS and government agencies.”
And now we know there’s a concerted effort by the GOP establishment to do the same – remember, you don’t have to be a Democrat to be a progressive.
Here’s my take on it. Big government advocates are threatened, regardless of party, and they’re dead set against losing power. The Washington DC cabal wants to continue being the center of power, and that means continuing and increasing government spending. They believe the greatest resource they have is money — not contributions from genuine Americans, but rather that of special interest groups.
What these DC politicians, statists and/or progressives don’t realize is that the greatest resource the American people have is the truth, and the Constitution of the United States.
Money and corruption will never be able to stand against a heartfelt resolve and love of country. Selfless service always defeats self-service and the days are drawing near when “We the People” will restore the American Republic
