Glenn met with a GOP bigwig who wanted him to change his tune…this is what happened next.

Yesterday, Glenn had a meeting with a GOP bigwig. He’s not naming names, but he did reveal one big topic of conversation: Glenn really needs to stop asking people to defund the GOP. So, of course, Glenn took to radio today with one very clear message: Defund the GOP.

“He started in on me and he was very nice,” Glenn said. “I think it was probably one of his more uncomfortable meetings. But he started in and…he was very, very nice. And I stopped him and I said, you know, ‘The longer I thought about meeting with you today, the more hostile I have become.'”

“I said, ‘I’ve met (the Tea Party and 9/12 Project members). I don’t know if you have. But I’ve met these people. And they’re moms and they are dads and they went to, you know, Hobby Lobby and they went and they got some cardboard and they got sprinkles and glue and they sat around their kitchen table and they made signs and then for making those signs, boy…they took abuse from the media and the Democrats and Nancy Pelosi saying that they were nothing but shills for you. And they weren’t shills for you. They were shills for the Constitution.”

“And then what happens? As soon as you’re done with them, as soon as that happens, you can’t get away from them fast enough and…you stab them in the back. Then you stab them in the chest and you stab them in the eyes and you stab them in the side.”

Glenn heavily criticized the lack of action taken when it was revealed that the IRS had been targeting Tea Party groups.

“We’ve tried absolutely everything,” Glenn said about the Tea Party and 9/12 members. “We’ve tried to be nice. We’ve tried to come with signs. We come with our families. We’ve changed our life. We have gone out of our comfort zone. And we have taken it every step of the way.”

Despite the support the GOP had from the Tea Party, especially in the 2010 midterm elections, they have never embraced the Tea Party nor have they given more than lip service to them. It is only when Glenn is telling conservatives in his audience to defund the GOP that the establishment GOP reaches out.

“And now the only time you have ever had your shadow cross my threshold is when you are suddenly being cut off by funds. It seems to me it might be working. Because you’ve never given a rat’s ass what these people have said.”

Glenn did say he would give the unnamed GOP member an opportunity to come on the radio show and tell their side of the story, but he would not let it be a one-sided conversation, nor would he allow his show to become a shill for the GOP.

“Mitch McConnell should be gone. Lindsey Graham should be gone. Cornyn should be gone. Boehner should be gone. McCain should be gone,” Glenn said.

    Frankly Glenn, it damages your credibility with me when you don’t name the names. If you can’t name the names then why assert the conversation to begin with. When you do this it creates in people mind the doubt of all GOP members. Be fair to those who are not part of the BS. Until you name the people, I will consider it a lie. My Mother always said believe nothing you hear and half of what you see.

    • Curtis Armstrong

      Maybe so. And maybe it would help your credibility if you used your real name when calling other people out. I also wish Glenn, and others, would only agree to these kinds of meetings with the understanding that everything will be made available to the public.

        Because I am not profiting off of it. I receive no applause or personal gain. My ideas are what should be on trial buddy, not my personal being unless I am getting something out of it.

        By the way, if you have followed my posts long enough and are astute and well read, you would be able to know who I am. I have left many clues but the IQ level is beyond you. Sorry to be so blunt but I really can’t stand stupid.

    • Anonymous

      Which is more credible, telling someone you’d speak to them with anonymously and breaking your word? Glenn has his character to support his word.

      • landofaahs

        I would not be stupid enough to tell someone absolutely that I would keep the name to myself. What would Glenn have done if he had given his word and then it was revealed that something illegal was going on? Now, perhaps he put qualifiers on that agreement prior to that but then we may never know. Frankly he would have done better to just say that the RNC is hurting and they are getting desperate due to the defund the GOP effort.

        • Anonymous

          OK… no matter if it is News or Commentary, when you name the people you talk to, you will suddenly find yourself with no one willing to talk to you. Now, an educated guess would probably be Perry, but who it is matters not. The very fact that they sent a highpockets RNC hack to try to shut Glenn up speaks volumes. It means that what the Tea Party and the true conservatives are doing is having a profound effect on politics and highlights the fact that individuals can still make a difference. Now, if we could just get the Dems to wake up and realize the truth about all the BS they are happily slurping down, our country would once again become GREAT.

      • landofaahs

        I like a lot of things Glenn says but that does not equal trust. Frankl;y, Glenn has too many times brought up things and said “Nobody is talking about this”. while I read it on different sites before even heating it from Glenn. Glenn hits sites like Zero Hedge, Drudge report, Breitbart etc. and then passes that stuff off as his own.

    The defund the GOP must be hurting them badly for them to take the chance of exposure if it were true. But since there is no open honesty on Glenn’s side, I just consider it a one-sided account.

        Because revenge is an excellent motivation to Do The Right Thing?

        You sound exactly like the people you claim to oppose, and that makes it very difficult to want to be a part of the “we” you speak of, despite the fact that I, too, oppose the Progressive agenda.

        People today want to say that “if you’re not with us, you’re against us,” but Jesus said, “if you are not in opposition to us, then you are with us.” This is the position of a man motivated by love, as opposed to vengeance.

        I hope you are never in a position of any power, until you change your motivation.

            I know just where you’re coming from, but I have lost 20 years from my life in pursuit of that path of accepting my judgement over God’s Will, and it’s just not worth distancing myself from morality any longer.

            A woman I love recently departed my life, and amongst her last words were, “I think you need to read your Bible more.”

            All other factors and circumstances aside, she was right.

          Would love to see the passage that you quote from scripture.

          • Mike Nelson

            Matthew 12:30

            Mark 9:39

            Luke 9:50 & 11:23

            Thank you for asking for references.

            I don’t think that many of the people here who post things about the Bible/Jesus really know what the book says OR means. If more did, posts like those Sam Fisher/Revan makes in clearly vitriolic terms would not get so many up votes.

            Revenge is never, never the way to righteousness, unless you fully ignore the New Testament, and any crowd you gather with words motivated by violent sentiments will expect only violence of themselves and others.

            That is the Dark Side, the Weakest Link, the Path to Hell.

            It is easy to walk that path in juvenile and/or self-righteous anger, but that path does NOT lead to the destination “we” want, and I can’t walk that path any longer, having realized the error of my own self-righteousness. Anger, wrath, revenge… these are automatic, human reactions, and require no effort, but the choice to Do The Right Thing required both knowledge and active work.

            Epiphany comes only when you’re willing to search with open eyes and hearts, just as fortune favors the prepared, and when you dismiss the idea that everything happens according to God’s Plan, you dismiss God from your pursuits.

      I have a question for you since you are happy to see the nails in the GOP coffin. Are you going to donate to the costs of buying a strong rope and finding the tall tree with a strong limb to administer the same treatment as benny Arnold got to judasbama, holder, pisslosi, reid, FU shumer, etc.???

      • Anonymous

        The question is not if I would “administer” any kind of treatment for anyone party. You are asking for a loyalty statement, but I have no loyalty for any political party or person. What’s happening here is that the GOP is self-destructing. And Glenn here is happy to help fall what is already falling. Nietzsche said this was our responsibility, and I agree. For that, I commend Glenn. On the other side, let me answer with the question: do YOU think the democratic party is also self-destroying? Hint: if they are, why would anyone need to blabber hate speech about hanging them, as in a lynching mob?

        Unfortunately, B Arnold was not hung. He moved to London and died ignored.

      The GOP is voting with the democrats, they have nailed their own coffin. It is time for a new party that represents us; the conservatives, the constitutionalists, the “I have been taxed enough”, the “if you want more, get better, make yourself more valuable” crowd. The crowd that says if you want to contribute, good, but quit giving my stuff to someone else.

      I get calls and emails from them and I tell them I have called the NRC and tell them the same thing I told the NRC: I am tired of their leadership attacking conservatives like the Tea Party and Senator Ted Cruz.

        “They should focus on the real adversary: the Democrats.” No. The progressives are the real enemy and they are in both parties. As long as the progressives run candidates in both parties it doesn’t matter which individual wins, the progressives win.

        That’s why everyone should support individuals rather than parties. Thanks for that.

            “Blue Dog” is derived from “Yellow Dog”, the segregation democrats, led by Strom Thurmond, who said they would vote for a “Yellow Dog” before they would support a Republican. The Progressives are “progressing” back to the white supremacy era with the help of black voters. The Progressives revived the KKK around 1912 with the first Progressive president, Democrat Woodrow Wilson. Hitlary…er… Hillary Clinton is a self described Progressive. Blue Dogs are fiscally conservative Democrats who were “choked blue” by Republicans.

      So what do we do about John Boehner?

      While there are grassroots efforts emerging to primary Boehner in Ohio’s 8th District — and we wish them all possible success — the time has come to consider an alternative plan. A nuclear option, if you will.

      Assuming that Boehner wins his primary in OH-8, I suggest we rally
      support among Tea Party and Constitutional Conservatives in that
      district to vote. To vote Democrat.”

      • billsnotes365

        It this kind of thinking that makes Obama grin from ear to ear. Divide and conquer … that is the strategy that was worked for despites and dictators throughout history. The trouble is we are doing it to ourselves.

        What would you have Boehner do? He is trying to hold together a coalition of Republican representatives from all over The United States. If you think that a representative from New York or New Hampshire is going to think exactly the same way as one from Texas, you don’t understand politics. If that New York representative did that, he probably would not be able to hold his or her seat. You get things done by working with people and compromising.

        One of Obama’s greatest failures as a President is that he can’t work with people, not even in his own party. That’s why he is now sitting in the White House acting as a dictator with his executive orders. Obama is not a good enough politician to get his program through Congress. His “signature” health care bill was passed when the Democrats had huge majorities in Congress. He just preaches to the bobble headed idiots outside of Washington who hang on his every word and acts like he has nothing to do with what’s wrong with the country.

          You forget who is the majority in this party. It is the conservatives. Establishment Republicans predominantly located away from GOP strongholds have held sway in the party for too long. This is a problem that goes back to Goldwater. Boehner is just serving the Republican parties interests, he is doing nothing for conservatism. In fact, conservatives have had only two major policy successes in the past 18 years and one of those is gone and the other is in tatters.

          We need a warrior not a placeholder. Boehner needs to go and it will cost absolutely nothing to replace him with a Democrat.

            So what do you propose? That we shut down the government again and let the lame stream press make the GOP the heavies as they have every other that has happened? Congress is held in lower regard than Obama. How many times do you need to put your hand on a red hot stove before you learn that you will get burned? Shutdowns DON”T work, especially when you are in the minority.

            Here is the solution: Knock out as many Democrats as
            possible and then put pressure on the GOP senators and congressmen and women to do the right thing. You will get nothing from a Democrat no matter how hard you try. I know. I’ve tried writing to them. Obama owns them, and they will say anything during an election cycle to deny that they are Obama’s slaves. Stay home because you don’t get 100% of you want, Obama wins. Get out a push as many Democrats out of office as possible and win the Senate, we have a chance. It’s just that simple.

      That is what happened in VA and gave the dems a clean sweep. The so-called libertarian funded by a dem bundler is going to run in the senate race and stop help the dems again. I hope that is not what is happening in KY. I see donating to individuals but do not see the need to kill the GOP leaving the dems in full control for the rest of our lifetimes. I am not hearing anything to damage the dems but let them go free with their criminal ideology and kill the GOP. Makes no sense to me.

    I want a GOP that has the courage and conviction to say they don’t need your money. In fact, that they are going to live by the principles of conservatism and they aren’t going to waste the enormous sums of money that are being wasted getting elected. A GOP that has the courage to stand up and say that it will conduct the next election by campaigning no more than 120 days before any election. That their country is too important to waste national treasure on elections but rather their monies will be spent on managing the limited government our Constitution promises. Stop taking handouts and control your destiny. Let the other parties stand for big government and spend their fortunes in the continuous election cycle. We, the people, are smarter than lowering ourselves playing their game. Our principles are still the principles of dignity and freedom. We must not continue to participate in a rigged game and the GOP must understand that they are on notice.

        If they campaign only 120 days before the election they have lost. Guaranteed. You don’t get yours in until the others are gone and yours cannot win if they do not campaign as long as the others and if they kill the one side that has some believers. The dems have no believers and yet you are anti- GOP.

    personally ive never known Beck to lie,, further I thought it was common knowledge that they’re ALL crooks, democrats and republicans alike. I dont blame congress for their actions,, i blame america for NOT holding them accountable for their actions. Beck never sided with the GOP. yes he leans conservative, as do i. but i believe him. I will look for myself, into the GOP intolerance of the tea party. i suspect his conversation was with Rand Paul, whom i hope runs for president, as an INDEPENDENT. I think we’re all ready for a real change.

We will take back are country and the Constitution an the bill of rights. This march is not a DC movement or a Republican party or a tea party group. Or any Generals that got dumped by obama. This movement is by the people of the good people of this country, nothing else. So on April 16 2014. We march on Washington DC an both houses an the supreme court. We will take back are country. Please remember that this is a peaceful movement. We will take back are country. It belongs to the people of this country. Amen

      Good Luck on that! I just don;t see it making a difference. You can march all you wish. The only people that benefit, are the D.C. Hotels and tourist sites. No one pays attention to this anymore, if they ever did. Start with your local representative. Then…go after your Congressman, then …your Senator. Can’t gather their attention?

It must come from fearless men and women like yourselves who are willing to champion freedom publicly. Keep fighting the good fight.

    I was getting mail from the GOP asking for donations. I used a red marker and wrote,” you do not represent me anymore. I am an Independent. The Gop left me a long time ago. Do not waste your postage on me anymore,as you clutter my malibox with junk mail!!” When the Young Republicans called I told the person that the GOP does not stand for conservative values anymore & they need to consider representing a real party. I gave him a list of wrongs with the GOP had committed. They don’t call me anymore.
    I have joined the Constitution Party. The only Party that stands for the values that I hold dear. It is in 27 states and the states that it isn’t in can petition the state to get on the ballot. It’s worth the effort. By the way,the GOP brought a law suit against the Constitution Party.

    I have gotten a couple calls here and there from the GOP asking for money. I’ve told them I like to fund individual candidates’ campaigns, which has been my position for many years. I have made a decision, though. At least for the time being, if I vote for a Republican, I am only voting for candidates whose agenda is to bring the federal gov’t back to a constitutionally limited gov’t. They don’t have to bring the gov’t back into compliance with the Constitution overnight (because we didn’t get here overnight), but I want them working to take us back in that direction. If I don’t see such a candidate, I’ll likely vote for their Democratic opponent. I know this rankles even doctrinaire conservatives, because they see that that will make the conservative ideal that much harder to achieve, but my logic works like this: If the people in my locality choose candidates which present a choice between “big government” and “big government-lite,” I’d rather give us the full bore. We’ve had “Big government-lite” over the years, and all it’s given us is the same poison with an anesthetic to lessen the pain while the American idea of freedom dies. I want Americans to feel the pain that their own choices are imposing on us. (BTW, Obamacare is doing that quite nicely!) I consider that our only hope of turning this around.

    If locals choose a candidate who believes in some restraint on gov’t, and is willing to work hard to steer the country in the direction of a gov’t that actually shrinks in size, not merely slows its growth, I’ll gladly vote along with them. Some will say, “You’re being unrealistic. Slowing the growth of government is the best we can hope for.” In that case, American freedom is already dead. It’s just a matter of time. Why should I continue to operate under the pretense that anyone in the GOP is fighting to preserve liberty?

    I used to tolerate “big government-lite” in the GOP because for a while I thought it was the right balance. Later, I thought it bought conservatives time against the predations of the liberal agenda, that at some point the conservative argument for smallter gov’t would win out, and that the strategy would pay off. All it’s done, though, is delay what the Left has wanted to do all along. It hasn’t stopped it.

    This country needs to make a choice. Are we going in the direction of decline, where only the politically connected succeed, and we feed the Beast In Washington, or are we going to realize we are a free people? We may very well find out that we have left the idea of freedom behind, and we want this politically corporate hierarchy that’s being built. If so, I will not be happy about it, but at least I will have the satisfaction of knowing that we have dropped the pretenses, and we can all see that this is who we really are. I hope America chooses otherwise.

  • Jeramiah Styers

    I wish you had pulled your head out of your ass sooner Mr. Beck. You are gaining my respect. I am not going to lie I couldn’t stand your show when it was all negativity and about the problems. You seem to have switched directions and are now working on the solutions rather than continuing to beat dead horses. Your show about the fed I felt was really refreshing. Many people know it many don’t, nobody was willing to talk about it openly but you did and I am proud of you. Your admission of being part of the problem was the most honest thing I have ever heard from a political perspective. Most of the asshats in Washington could stand to learn a thing of two from you since your head has been removed from your ass keep up the good work sir.

    I’ve returned letters requesting financial support from the GOP, the RNC and others with a note telling them to get their act together, stand by the American People and the Constitution and do their damn jobs we sent them to Washington to do.

    They don’t listen. They don’t care. They do what they want, They’re like king-men all standing around eager to please Obama and not upset the Democrats in order to retain some degree of power, hoping for scraps from the President’s table like dogs. It’s utterly pathetic, frustrating and unacceptable. I hope to high heavens the dirty GOP leaders who claim to be Republicans but are really Marxist Progressives, get booted out of office this election.

    I refuse to even consider voting Republican simply because a candidate is Republican. From now on, I will be voting for the man or woman with proven integrity and is of the highest caliber and character. Men like Ted Cruz, who the GOP leadership hates because his job and says what they should be saying but don’t have the spines or the honor to do so.

    Thank you Glenn for standing up to the un-named GOP leader! We, the American People, have just about reached our limit of patience with them, with Washington, with Obama, even the Supreme Court. We’re fed up with the lies, corruption, scandals, fraud, Obama’s support of Al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist groups, snubbing our best allies, destroying our health care system, trampling our rights and freedoms, leaving Americans to die in a foreign nation when they could have been saved, the divisiveness, racism, unwillingness to prosecute the law while attempting stop those who are, police state actions by the DHS and FBI acting more like thugs and Nazi Gestapo than Law Enforcement and National Security agencies, the illegal NSA surveillance of Americans, IRS targeting of conservatives, , the EPA shutting down businesses and manufacturing, the extortion by the Park Service shutting down all national parks and monuments… and the list goes on!

    There are certain elites in Washington that need to be tried and hung fro treason. Glenn just name a few of them. WE ARE FED UP FED UP FED UP!!!

  • luke orem

    Listen, the GOP was co-opted by the Neoconservatives. It is NOT a party of small government or individual rights. It is a welfare party of protectionists and nation builders. Don’t be confused by rhetoric, look at the history of the Neoconservatives, their roots and their goals. It has nothing to do with small government, they want a more efficient empire with broader control of foreign affairs. They want to always be at war, always be in control and buy off the voters to make it happen. These people are guns and butter liberals, ALL of their policies show this indisputably. This isn’t the party that nominated Goldwater or opposed entering WWI. These are the exact opposite. They know how the world should be run, and they know that you should pay for it and pay them to do it. You would have had a better chance of convincing Woodrow Wilson to adopt the articles of the confederation than you will of getting the Neoconservative politicians in the republican party to be about small government.

    The RNC called my home last night asking for $$$ to help defeat Nancy Pelosi et al. When I explained to him that I supported the TEA Party he went on to explain how we needed to stick together. After a long conversation, and my explaining to him how I had not left the RNC, the RNC had left me and that McCain, Boehner et al were just as much traitors as NP, he finally gave up trying to get me to give money. He then admitted that he was a TEA Party member as well. I then encouraged him to give up trying to raise money for the dead elephants and join the rest of us real Americans. He said, there wasn’t a national TEA Party to join up and fight with, so how do we do it? I said think local. We start with our hometowns, our neighbors our friends. From his intonation it was obvious he was a man of color (is that PC?), so I asked him if his friends and neighbors knew he was a TEA Partier. He laughed and said no they would gang up on him. I explained that I have been called a racist and much worse by people whom I thought were my friends, but also said it takes courage to stand up for your convictions in the face of brutal onslaughts such as we are subjected to including those by our own government.
    There are many more of us out here than is being portrayed by those with the voices to do so. We have been ridiculed, subjected to IRS abuses, I had my house searched by the SS for my opinions, They are afraid of the power we hold and I for one will stand my ground to my last breath.

    I’m a bad egg. I don’t and wont contribute to any campaign. I think these politicians are bought and paid for in DC and my contribution really means very little in the whole spectrum of things. Furthermore, I feel that the majority of these people are in DC for the paycheck and are disinterested in doing what we elect them to do. All of them, democrats and republicans alike have sat around and played games all the while “feeding the monster” and then turning a blind eye to that fact. I am tired of finger pointing in DC and I want people there to hold themselves accountable for what they do and don’t do. Us doing isn’t working unless we are going to get dead serious and take it to them at the polls. We need to tan some collective hides and send the slackers packing. Anyone dining of big corporate credit cards and getting giant kick backs needs to be the days of old. There was a day when politicians “wanted” to make a difference and they weren’t so concerned when Congress was going to be giving themselves another raise. Raises should be done with and we the people should be who decides who gets a raise and who doesn’t. Obviously, raises should be determined by who accomplishes what, and not across the board. (I know that’s a pipe dream.) In closing, we need to take our country back. Democrats and republicans alike are responsible for this head ache and its right time they were held accountable.

    I dont see all that is going on but what I see on my FB screen from Tea party posts is silly.. By all definitions, I am a fiscal conservative. Notice how I said FISCAL..Not religious.. But anyways, all I see is posts that bemoan our current president and things like Impeach him NOW!!!! and of course we had the whole gov shut down over the incessant desire to get rid of Obama Care which COULD NEVER FRIGGIN HAPPEN until 2016 anyways…This to me is an absolutely perfect example of how foolish this movement has become!!!!!!.. The problem with the Tea Party movement is that it has become a home for zealots, no difference really from the Move On group.. So in the end, what would we have if Glenn Beck got his way????? two opposing political groups who would consider it a sin to find a compromise..Theres a reason why the house ratings are so horrible.. Its called Zealotry… Think Im wrong Glenn Beck?? Lol I wont hold my breath for a response.

      You’re exactly right. Glenn Beck is pushing the religious extremism that Barry Goldwater warned about in the 1960’s and his core audience of ignorant indignant over 55 people love it. The problem is, the US has changed and it’s not changing back.

        Is Glenn Beck promoting a theocracy? I don’t think so … OTOH, we already have a de facto theocracy running this nation; the Cult of the Credentialed and Connected Omniscient, who believe that credentials/position/popularity make one so all-seeing that they can solve the problems of 300 million people FOR them through top-down intervention.

        That takes more BLIND faith to believe in, than anything Glenn, or I believe in.

      Outside of abortion/contraception and gay marriage – for all of which, a secular case can be made to support the allegedly “religious” position – just where are the “religious” causing a problem?

      The problem is twofold – the blind zealots who don’t take the time to make the objective case for conservative principle, and those like yourself who are stuck in the conventional wisdom of “civility” and “compromise” in the face of intellectually-dishonest Progressives who persistently turn those attributes against your principles.

      Civility in response to intellectual dishonesty, is counterproductive in the defense of liberty.

    Glenn, I have seen the problem between the RNC and the DNC for many years now. They both want the same things once inside the beltway. Who they serve is the only difference between them. It is time for a 3rd Party to enter the system to off-set the RNC and the DNC, to give them COMPETITION on WHO will serve the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the PEOPLE, not CORPORATIONS, WEALTHY, UNIONS and the DEPENDENT sucking off the Government Tit ! Party Platforms are irrelevent because they are not followed. They are used as talking points to ensnare voters.

    The time has come to break free and do what we must to secure the future for future generations of Americans.

    Not one red cent will leave my pocket to go to the Republican Party. Are there good men and women there? Absolutely. But there are also some very vicious snakes and skunks who are unworthy to bear the banner of Lincoln, or to besmirch the title of conservative. Michael Medvid may try to paint a rosy picture of these Republican reprobates, but I would just as soon see the party disintegrate by going bust financially, than by melding into a progressive pastel copy of Democrat goals and principles. NOT ONE RED CENT!

    I was a member of the RNC for 30 years, but no more. The establishment Republicans have compromised their principles in the interest of becoming “big tent”. They have become “Democrat lite” big government people. I can’t be part of that!

  • Mike

    I agree. I have sent the RNC several emails stating that since they continue to support liberal Republicans, I cannot contribute to or support their efforts. Instead I choose to contribute to and support conservative Republicans such as Senator Paul and Senator Cruz.

  • D.b. Swanson

    I congratulate Glenn for his courage. Now I would like to ask him to support “Operation American Spring” which may be the last massive peaceful attempt at restoring Constitutional rule of Law. Has OAS been attacked by Republicans? Yes. Has OAS been attacked by the Left? You bet. Has OAS been attacked by Nut-Cases of every stripe? Yep. Through all of it we continue to grow at a heart warming pace and keep asking all Freedom loving Americans to come to D.C. one last time. The difference this time will be… We will be staying!

    The GOP Leadership is not going to change because of Glenn… the GOP is cut off from their base, they have isolated themselves from those who have supported them for years, apparently expecting too attract those who are working to put them out of business… the minorities, gays, godless, humanist, moderates whose only loyalty is to a government pay check. They are going to wake up to find not only their base gone but those they attempted to attract missing in action on election day.
    The GOP leadership is trying to play both sided of the isle… alienating the conservatives to the point that they will no longer support these two faced demagogues. It’s as if the GOP RINO’s are deliberately trying to destroy the GOP… Makes one wonder if the leadership of the GOP is in fact part of the GOP or Manchurian candidates working to destroy the GOP.

  • Ritchie The Riveter

    For those of you who keep telling us that any RINO is better than a Democrat when it comes to populating the House and Senate … how low does the agreement percentage have to be (I am speaking here of agreement in terms of resolute action, not just lip movement) before it becomes as good or better, for the sake of sound governance over the long term, to let him/her be replaced by someone we do not agree with at all?

    As in, get our “friend” out of the way … so we can truly deal with the problems once events and consequence expose the stupidity of our enemy, instead of continuing to support a measure of stupidity in the name of political expediency and prolonging the problems?

They aren’t public servants, we the public are their servants – And I am SICK of it!

  • Jim Dicken

    Politics is a chess game. The Tea Party wants it to be cut and dried, but reality is that while the TEA PARTY is pretty much right, the way they want to be the bull in the china shop is not going to get conservatives elected. You can rail against the GOP leadership on the budget deal, but in the end, the damn budget is a NO WIN FOR THE GOP. Shutting down the government hurt us, and could have cost us the 2014 election if the Tea Party had had its way. Since the budget deal that re-opened the government the media has been focused on Obamacare and its harm. DO YOU REALLY WANT TO GO BACK and shut down the government again and have the DEMOCRATS use that to enrage their base and get the vote out??? The deficit is falling. Falling because of the Sequester that McConnell worked out. As a Kentuckian, losing him to a closet liberal like Matt Bevin who took bailout money, even begged for it, is stupid. McConnell has been a staunch CONSERVATIVE, he is a REGAN Republican. HE saw that the media and the Dems were gaining on the budget so he compromised, and that compromise put Obama into a NOSE DIVE on popularity. Thanks to McConnell we now have a chance to beat the Dems. The My WAY or the HIGHWAY of the Tea Party is not going to win this next election. DO not take me wrong, we need the Tea Party, but you guys really need to see things beyond the cut and dried. You put 3 people up for Senate who were of dubious ability in the last election and they managed to blow double digit leads and lose the SENATE to the Democrats again. Had we won those 3 seats we would have the House and the Senate… and we could even have a chance at impeachment. The reason we do not have the senate is poor planning on the part of the Tea Party and failure to vet the people you put up in the last election in places that should have been shoo ins for Republicans.

  • Willie Radford Sr.

    It’s all because of the “One World Order” agenda that this dumbing down is
    Happening , unfortunately both parties ( RINO’S ) are working with the Obama administration to make this happen…I would not hesitate to say that George Soros’s money is helping to persuade the RINO’S, especially since FOXNews reported that they have all become millionaires….Back track before Obama became President when Henry Kissinger said in a campaign ad, and I quote ” Obama has been primed to lead us into the One World Order, without we will be in chaos” un-quote..
    I would guess, the fastest way to bring us down is though Socialism
    Last but not least “Who Primed Him”???

    So what do we do about John Boehner?

    While there are grassroots efforts emerging to primary Boehner in Ohio’s 8th District — and we wish them all possible success — the time has come to consider an alternative plan. A nuclear option, if you will.

    Assuming that Boehner wins his primary in OH-8, I suggest we rally
    support among Tea Party and Constitutional Conservatives in that
    district to vote. To vote Democrat.”

      Glenn didn’t have time to name all of the traitors in the GOP! Much easier to name the two or three we respect and are doing what is right!

  • D.b. Swanson

    Glenn must get tired speaking out and only getting grief for his efforts. Something he has reached his ‘anger level’ with the way our politicians think they know better than we mere Citizens. Millions of us have reached our anger level and no longer believe in the system that progressives seem to control in this country. The only document that WE THE PEOPLE have to fall back on is our Constitution, and it’s about d*** time we use it. Sure obama and his kind must go, but those that would rather kiss his royal rear end instead of fighting him must go also. On the 16 th day of may, millions of patriots will be in DC to demand a restoration of Constitutional rule. I pray that Glenn will embrace the event and join us. In fact, we pray that many of you will join us and for a very good reason… this may be the last peaceful event held to save this nation. For God and Country!

    I once called the RNC and asked to speak to someone in their campaign office about a promotion I received that I felt was an absolute disaster. It was so patronizing it came close to being illiterate. I felt this was ill-advised, and I wanted to try to help them. I introduced myself as someone who works with Heritage Action.

    I got a cute little intern who tried hard to sound like a grownup, but couldn’t help
    giggling when I told her what I wanted. I insisted on being transferred. She kept
    me on hold for an official amount of time, and handed me off to–another intern,
    who could barely contain herself at the cleverness of it all.

    This is the Republican National Committee! This is the outfit that is supposed to set the platform agenda that will save the United States from the ruin of which we are
    on the brink! and what you get when you call them is inane children.

    How can the RNC care about the country, when it doesn’t even care about itself?

    If you receive any mail from the NRC or any GOP Fundraisers, do not throw it away! Mail it back with no money and with detailed commentary on your Conservative views. My final words usually suggest that they can expect monetary support as soon as they confirm that Boehner, Mconnell, MCain, Graham, Cornyn……….and all the other RINO’s are gone!!

    There is hope for GB yet. I have left him alone since GB’s response to Sarah Palin at Indianola.

    If GB wants to join the war with all seriousness and stand for Liberty against the GOPe with the Incumbent Challengers, that’s a good thing.

    GB’s interview with Katrina Pierson was quite wonerful, thank you. Steve Stockman is available. Matt Bevit is available. Nancy Mace will come calling.

    Hopefully, GB, you are not just after the ratings pump, from these bright faces, but supportive of their goals to stand for Liberty.

      You must have missed something. Beck isnt perfect, none of us are, but he has done more to wake up people about the nature of the GOP than probably any other figure in contemporary US history. He was one of the very first major public figures to publicly back and support the tea party.

      I guess you have given up on the country.

        It is already a one party country: democrat and democrat lite. There are more commonalities and similarities between GW Bush and Obama than there are differences. Bush was a lousy president, Obama is Bush on steroids.

      Ex governor Palin. She couldn’t even take the heat in Alaska. What would she do in Washington where the politics is like a blast furnace? She is a totally unelectable and unqualified candidate.

      • Anonymous

        She receives a barrage of constant criticism, criticism that almost no other political figure is faced with and does so with dignity and aplomb. Perhaps you should listen to her instead of what alinskyite character assassins say about her because she is a strong conservative woman. What makes McCain qualified to be president? He was a POW that is not a qualification. He has been a leftist senator for his entire political career, and has more joint legislation with ultra-leftist democrats than any other GOP senator, that also is not a qualification. He has no business experience and no other qualifications for president. Sarah Palin has been both a successful mayor and governor, helped run a small family business,and takes on all comers and does so with intelligence and with dignity, instead of with temper tantrums and rants like McCain.

    The Tea Party and Obama are killing this country. We all know what Obama is up to, but a lot of you new activists don’t understand that you can’t run a national political party under the “you must agree with me on every issue” banner. Sure, there are RINOs like Mike Castle from Delaware in 2010. He supported Obama Care and Cap & Trade. I’m all for tossing a “Republican” like him under the bus.

    But in Nevada and Missouri we ended up the Tea Party candidates who lost elections we should have won if only they could have kept their feet out of their mouths. Wouldn’t it have been great to have gotten rid of Harry Reid? It might have happened. But the Tea Party takes the attitude that if an incumbent doesn’t do everything they want, that office holder must go. That is stupid and plays right into to Obama’s hands.

    You are never going to get a Ted Cruz from a northeastern state, but wouldn’t it be great if you could get someone who opposed Obama Care and Cap & Trade? You bet, and the Tea Party people would do well to remember that. And remember this. You can have a dialog with the vast majority of Republican officeholders. You can’t have one with an Obama clone, and for what I see about 95% of the Democratic Party officeholders have been cloned to Obama. They can’t or won’t oppose him on any issue.

      If you got rid of Reid You would have Durbin in his place and Schumer would be one step closer, so getting rid of Reid would accomplish absolutely nothing. Likewise, electing a rino that would essentially do the same thing as Reid, just at a slower pace would also have accomplished nothing. You conveniently forget that the tea party supported Scott Brown and Toomey. F the GOP!

    I joined Veterans Party of America ( for every reason Glenn provided in this article. The Tea Party is noble and idealistic, but refuses to separate from the GOP. As a reward, the GOP treats them like foster children. They’re good for a paycheck, but have no voice in “family” (party) decisions.
    I am a Veteran. Most of my party’s leadership are Veterans. But more importantly, we are AMERICANS. We swore an oath to defend the Constitution, as do the politicians from both parties. But our oath is solemn. We mean it. Their oaths are a lip service formality. Neither party respects the Constitution. They all obfuscate it at every opportunity. Enough has been far more than enough.
    At the very least, my voice is now heard by my party. My concerns and efforts are recognized. I used to complain about the corruption and share noble ideals with fellow my Patriots… then get stuck having to vote for power-hungry liars. No more. Veterans Party of America takes those same noble, Constitutional ideals and turns them into political strategy at every level: local, state and federal.
    I commend Glenn’s decision to abandon the GOP. It’s a decision I made long ago, for all the same reasons. I want representatives who respect, support and defend the Constitution. We won’t accept anything else in our party.

    I stopped financially supporting the Republican party back when Bush only gave lip service to closing off our Southern border. I give to individuals only and I recommend everybody do the same now. They keep telling us that enforcing our laws is impossible and it really is impossible when you just don’t want to do it. Obama has spent more money on vacations than on closing the border to illegals. McConnell and Boehner couldn’t work any harder for the Democrats if they were on the Democrat payroll (which they probably are).
