It’s not the media, it’s not the liar-in-chief; it’s the Republican Party, and the machine that Karl Rove is building in the background (based on John Podesta’s Center For American Progress) rallying money and support for republicans they want elected. After eight years of Bush filleting the Constitution, the country, and your wallet, do we really want Karl Rove Republicans in power again? Can anyone honestly say that the Patriot Act made anybody safer while taking away your privacy and personal liberty? Americans have the pleasure of stripping naked to get through the airport, but bombers seem to be able to just stroll onto planes. How about that Dept. of Homeland Insecurity being currently run by a lawyer with no national defense or intelligence experience who thinks you are a terrorist, and isn’t paying any attention to the real dangers? (Did I or did I not mention yesterday that law enforcement believes we are all un-caught criminals?)
One has to give Karl Rove credit for having the wherewithal to build a machine to try to stop the Progressive Left from achieving power indefinitely and by the numbers, but what good does it do the average citizen when it’s the Progressive Right building the machinery. I’d prefer not to watch two evil titans battle it out over the American carcass they created.
How does the tea party movement find candidates that are aligned with traditional American values when the Republican Party starts running candidates that sound like us, but who are just progressive elites straining to get to the trough?
Karl Rove, Republican Party secretly plot vast network to reclaim power
The Republican Party’s best-connected political operatives have quietly built a massive fundraising, organizing and advertising machine based on the model assembled by Democrats early in the decade, and with the same ambitious goal — to recapture Congress and the White House.
The new groups could give Republicans and their allies a powerful campaign apparatus separate from the Republican National Committee. Karl Rove, political architect of the Bush presidency, and Ed Gillespie, former Republican Party chairman, are the most prominent forces behind what is, in effect, a network of five overlapping groups, three of which were started in the past few months.
The operating assumption of Rove, Gillespie and the other organizers is that despite the historical dominance of Republican fundraising and organizing, the GOP has been outmaneuvered by Democrats and their allies in recent years, and it is time to strike back.
“Where they have a chess piece on the board, we need a chess piece on the board,” said Gillespie, who is involved in all five groups in roles ranging from chairman to informal adviser. “Where they have a queen, we shouldn’t have three pawns.”
The network, which doesn’t have a name, attempts to replicate the Democracy Alliance, an umbrella group — founded in 2005 and funded by George Soros and other billionaires — and to borrow tactics from liberal groups established to help Democrats regain power after eight years of the Bush administration.
Two organizers of the Republican groups even made pilgrimages earlier this year to pick the brain of John Podesta, the former Clinton White House chief of staff who, in 2003, founded the Center for American Progress and was a major proponent of Democrats developing the kind of infrastructure pioneered by Republicans. (emphasis mine)
Rove, currently on a book tour, has provided “a laying-on of hands” for the groups — as one organizer put it — by encouraging major Republican donors to support them as part of the GOP’s path to revival. “Karl has always said: People call us a vast right-wing conspiracy, but we’re really a half-assed right-wing conspiracy,” he said. “Now, he wants to get more serious.”
While separate, the five entities are so closely related that three share an 11th-floor office near the White House. The groups are:

The Real Problem For The Tea Party Movement, Karl Rove Republicans: http://bit.ly/dr15BO
They say the eyes are the window to the soul, given this you can put your money on Rove. You may dislike his words or disagree with his style, but when it comes down to the bottom line….I’d put my trust in him as a man who loves his country. He doesn’t have to think about it; it is the core of his being. Rove can take the implausible and make it into something plausible, as we’ve seen. He is brilliant and likable. I’ve had the opportunity to meet him and I can tell you first hand, this man will shake hands with every person in the crowd and look them square in the eye, before each speaking engagement. EVERY SINGLE TIME. And, when you look back into those piercing, analytical eyes penetrating the back of your own mind……..you’ll see a patriotic American. He’s real and that’s worth something these days. Say what you will about him, he’s on a mission right now. He is a man who cares about this country and understands the true dynamics of what is taking place. The left will slant him as Machiavellian with a lack of empathy….. he is NOT a narcissistic personality disorder as the textbook case we are now subjected to in the Oval. How much better would we be if he held this office…….anyone would be better than what we have right now. But, rest assured Rove is brilliant with the heart of a REAL American. Let’s all pray the architect comes up with a design which dismantles and reverses the current perversion.
Great post D.T.!!
Sorry Norma Jean, but I just can’t trust anyone that manipulated the American public as much as Rove did for that many years. Even if he thought he was doing what was best for America, it’s still time for regular Americans to take this Republic back! The Constitution does not allow for power brokers like Rove or David Axelrod to control the people; end of story.
The only way I would want Karl Rove anywhere near the White House again is if he had some kind of come to Jesus moment and started believing and acting in the interests of American Sovereignty, the end of The Fed and the NWO. I don’t think that’s gonna happen.
gg – Phuckenay!
Perhaps you are correct in your analysis of Rove…… Maybe the answer is not Rove, but, I was told it will take decades to bring our country back. I am a Constitutionalist and believe in our own sovereignty. I’m not interested in become a ‘global citizen’ as some suggest Rove will continue to lead us into……but, what is the answer? The Marxist in chief has such a force of power, manipulation, with deceit behind him, they will stop at nothing for this power grab. http://www.changefor2012.com/2010/05/obama-file-102-americas-little-lenin-joel-rogers-and-the-obama-movement/ ) So, If a third party is created ….does this give Obama the entrance to further the agenda? Is there no way to turn the Republican Party into the party for the people?
The powerhouses are all meeting, strategizing on how to regain/ or retain control. What has me concerned is it’s all the same people meeting on both sides who will probably fall short on any new creative level of candidate selection/platform. Will they ever to us? Yes, the Tea Party activist have slowed down the process and have made the current administration work even harder to push their agenda, but will this be enough to win the next election? So many people are so sick of politics right now, they are turning a blind eye. La Raza, Working Families, big Unions, etc. are all coming out to push the cause even harder……are we to become the same as Greece? Rep. Paul Ryan points out that 20% of Americans today get 75 percent of their income from the Federal Government, and yet another 20% get 45 percent, while 60% of Americans get more benefits in dollar value from the Federal Government than they pay in taxes. Obama’s budget moves this to 70% of Americans. We’re reaching a tipping point in this country, after which the majority of Americans are more dependent on the government than they are upon themselves. So how do we turn this around? I’m sure ready for some productive, achievable goals which will lead America back to what our Founders intended. These daily crisis’ are wearing thin for many of us….we are losing our Republic piece by piece. If we as Americans, don’t stand up and oppose this dramatic enlargement of the nanny state now, while we have the chance, we will find our choices narrowed year after year until we wake up one day with little control over any decision by the self-appointed experts. I maintain, the American dream is not about a paternalistic government cradle to grave entitlement programs aimed to redistribute hard working Americans’ earnings; it is about succeeding through your OWN effort. Is this still a viable statement today? With each piece of legislation they pass the Progressives are pushing us down a path from which recovery will become increasingly difficult. The Progressive task in the next seven months will be to completely destroy the opposition. They will try and marginalize the Tea Party Movement and position themselves as the middle option. So, what/who will it take to bring our nation back?
And then, there is hope…..http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?print=yes&id=36856
