The author, Frank Salvato is the Executive Director for BasicsProject.org a grassroots,
non-partisan, research and education initiative focusing on Constitutional Literacy,
and internal and external threats facing Western Civilization.

It is clear to me that we have but one recourse in 2014. That is to clean out Congress,
old line establishment Democrats and Republicans have to be removed from office
before they do more damage to the foundation of our country and our society. Both
are crumbling fast as I am sure you have noticed if you are paying attention at all.

Please adopt thinking that will totally upset the Obama agenda. Be determined
that you will not reelect, or elect anyone that does not prove they will preserve,
protect and defend the Constitution in every situation. Be sure to send a clear
message to those that you vote for that they will only serve one term and then
step aside so that someone else can do his or her civic duty, for one term. This
will keep our government and country alive with new ideas and people that will
perform the duties of their office without any of the temptations of long terms
getting in the way.

Should you think this is a good idea, spread it far and wide. Let’s get the message
out and clean out Washington. Everyone in the House of Representatives is up for
reelection and 35 seats in the Senate are up for reelection in 2014. With that
many new people in Washington, screened during the election process to be
conservatives, Obama will not stand a chance. The People’s voice will return to
Washington and Obama will go.

Frank SalvatoAs Republicans stand on the precipice of taking back the majority in the United States Senate – that is if (and that’s a mighty big “if”) they can achieve the remarkable feat of not snatching defeat from the jaws of victory – it is becoming painfully obvious that our rhetorical standard-bearers of the punditry have not only been absorbed into the beltway mentality, but have ingested so much of the elitist Kool-Aid that they are, themselves, becoming the poison that moves the foundation of the Republican Party – and, therefore, Conservatism – incrementally to the Left.

It was with great chagrin that I listened to Ann Coulter, appearing on FOX News Channel’s Hannity, depict those who are calling out “establishment Republicans” shysters. Ms. Coulter, a usually stalwart scion of the Conservative Movement (but for her affection for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who hasn’t a clue about the serious threat our country faces from Islamofascism), while seemingly lauding the TEA Party, in the same breath took them to task for identifying Progressives who exist on the Right side of the aisle.

In part, Ms. Coulter opined:

“There are two ways of looking at it. The people out in America who call themselves TEA Partiers are fantastic. They’re the heart of America and I think they have made a huge difference; they did in the 2010 elections, which in the House, anyway, Republicans picked-up more seats than they did in the famous 1994 election…[U]nfortunately, as with any grassroots movement, I think there are a lot of con men and scammers coming in a tricking good Americans into sending them money claiming ‘we are fighting for you,’ and they aren’t fighting for you.”

Ms. Coulter later opined:

“Basically, anyone who claims to be going after ‘establishment Republicans,’ the key word here is ‘Republican’…if we don’t elect Republicans – I don’t care which Republican – we will not repeal Obamacare…The only way to repeal Obamacare is to elect Republicans. It is not to be fighting against Republicans.”

Evidently, and due to the fact that we live in a time when the electorate is about as evenly split as it ever has been; a five to ten percent of the population deciding elections, by Ms. Coulter standards, it is never a time to take a stand against the encroachment of Progressivism in the Republican Party.

Each and every one of those so-called “Conservative” pundits (including Ms. Coulter, I am quite sad to say) who attack the TEA Party – which is just as much a part of the Republican Party as Progressive-Leftists are a part of the Democrat Party – should forever refrain from singing the praises of President Ronald Reagan for their complete abandonment of Reagan’s 11th Commandment, originally declared by Gaylord Parkinson, “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.”

The demonization of those who the TEA Party grassroots elected to office – be it on the local, county, state or federal level – is inexcusable, as is their defense of those who have made being federally-elected a career, instead of a duty. By defending the status quo in the “establishment GOP,” Ms. Coulter and her fellow “top level” pundits, either inadvertently or knowingly, facilitate the incremental political slide to the Left from which our country currently suffers. They do so by their support for those in elected leadership who abdicate the founding principles of the Republican Party for retention of power.

As I stated back in a 2009 article titled, The Path to the Future Requires a Return to the Roots:

“In summary – and to paraphrase – the platform stood for protecting the rights of individuals as outlined in the Charters of Freedom, the right to unfettered government recourse and due process in the event those rights were challenged. Further, it embraced only specific and limited measures that would provide opportunity for individual achievement and advancement. And lastly, it set forth a welcome mat for men of all ideas and affiliations who ‘believe in the spirit of our institution as well as the Constitution of our country.’

“In other words, the original platform of the Republican Party was one of protecting the rights of individuals so that they could advance their individual beliefs and causes in society. What it did not establish was a platform of positions on special interest issues and litmus tests for those who would be put into nomination to lead the party, both in government and organization.

“Today’s Republican Party has abandoned these founding platform commitments. Instead, today’s GOP finds itself naively acquiescing to false challenges put forth by our political opponent parties; taking concrete positions on special interest issues that divide the electorate into two camps. The Republican leadership of today has fallen prey to a political tactic that forces declared positions on special interest issues. Because of this the party has become a haven for special interest groups instead of being a pure political organization that protects the fundamental rights of all Americans, including special interest groups.”

Each time our modern day national GOP leadership engages into “compromise” with the Progressive leadership of today’s Democrat Party; each time they break-off into “gangs” of eight, twelve or sixteen; each time they make excuses not to hold to the promises they made to the electorate during campaigns or try to explain why they voted directly against the founding principles of the party they lead, they prove to care more about retaining power than doing the work they were elected to do: representing their constituents and executing their charge with fidelity to the platforms they ran on.

Even a cursory understanding of the tactics used by the Progressive-Left sheds light on the fact – the fact – that they use the word “compromise” in situations where they already have the advantage, so as to “begin” “negotiations” from a position left of true political and ideological center. In using this tactic, they are assured that any perceived “compromise” will always – always – move the issue’s end point further to the ideological Left. A perfect example of this is “hate crime” and “hate speech” legislation.

As addressed in a recent article, who is the arbiter of the definition of “hate”? Hitler, Stalin and Guevara all had their own definitions of “hate” and those definitions resulted in the mass murders of millions of people. But Progressives manipulate the electorate – and their political opponents – by tapping into “feelings,” therefore, a fickle national GOP; a federally-elected Republican Party leadership more concerned with how they are perceived than the principles they were sent to Washington, DC, to defend, will always lose – always, and do so incrementally.

Today we have a federal Republican leadership team – or, an “establishment Republican” leadership team (a moniker at which Ms. Coulter grimaces), that:

▪ …has promised tax reform for decades but has never delivered said reforms, almost always tapping the excuse that it would never fly in an election year, even though Democrats promise the same;

▪ …has promised a decrease in the size and scope of government but has, instead, presided over a grotesque expansion of government, including the creation of the Department of Homeland Security (just for snicks-and-giggles, look-up the literal translation of Gestapo or “Geheime Staats-Polizei,”);

▪ …has consistently, since the enactment of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), openly and overtly pledged to do “everything possible” to de-rail, de-fund and repeal the law, yet refused to use the full power of the purse allocated to the US House of Representatives by the Constitution to do so;

▪ …has abandoned the law – the law – that says the southern US border is to be secured physically; instead entering into another round of immigration reform “compromise” that will – again – see the Progressive-Left achieving a mass amnesty for those who violated our laws to exist in our country.

I could go on and on and on but I will simply address one more:

▪ …has abandoned and abdicated their constitutional mandate to provide for the common defense. They have so egregiously abdicated this responsibility that we exist at the point where we cannot, by all accounts formulated by military leadership, wage and win two major conflicts simultaneously. Would the same level of ineptitude have existed in 1941, we would have lost World War II to either the Nazis or the Imperial Japanese…maybe both.

Yet, Ms. Coulter and her “establishment Republican” pundit brethren, and it gives me no pleasure to say this, continue to support the status quo incremental slide to the Left by facilitating the mentality of the career elitist Republican politician; the Progressive who has infiltrated the GOP; those who seek to legislate by “gang” and oligarchic elitism. It is for this reason that this statement of Ms. Coulter’s is so very misguided and, in fact, dangerous, and it bears repeating:

“…the key word here is ‘Republican’…if we don’t elect Republicans – I don’t care which Republican

Ms. Coulter, I certain do care about which Republicans are elected. Consider this: a Senate full of Lindsay Grahams and John McCains…It should send shivers down your spine.

    Commentary: “..but have ingested so much of the elitist Kool-Aid that they are, themselves, becoming the poison that moves the foundation of the Republican Party – and, therefore, Conservatism – incrementally to the Left”

    I have been saying this for years: as liberalism pulls further left .. the republicans, in an attempt to stay the same distance from liberalism, has drifted further left. They have been afraid of appearing “too far right” when in fact the left is the one who has been pulling farther and farther left and if republicans would have just stayed in the same place they feared looking (as liberals have tried to define it) “too far out of the main stream.”

    The right should define itself as the CONSTITUTION party .. and stand for it! I do not know why that is a problem when everyone takes the oath anyway (oops, I guess that would mean they would have to hold to that promise and we all know politicians do not hold to a single promise.)

    I am tired of the treason .. hold to the oath of office, stand for the constitution .. or get out of this country.

    Time and time again the American voters have proven that when given a choice between voting for a hard core Liberal Democrat offering all the free stuff that buys votes, over a wavering Rino amateur who only leans that way,,,, they will vote the Democrat in every time. Only the truth that sets men free told by candidates who can clearly communicate the collective dangers and subsequent individual personal debilitation that always accompanies the free candy in clear, cogent and personal terms can Conservatives hope to win the day and win back our country. A LIB radical always wins over LIB lite when greed is the only thing offered. Conservatives must rise above this and prove to THE PEOPLE that their own best interests reside in doing the RIGHT thing, not the LEFT. Only then will the elections turn to our best advantage. Let the Liberals offer the pleasure of their free Healthcare, free food stamps, and unrestricted sexual licenses, then let the Conservatives illustrate the long term damages done and the ultimate price to be paid in the end, the realization of which will never occur, just like the Conservative victories will never occur when the corrective pain of the foolish Liberal programs is continually kicked down the road in borrowed money and postponed days of reckoning by foolish politicians who continually surrender and raise the Debt ceiling which feeds and finances the Liberal Agenda bought and paid for with other people’s money of course. The other people ARE the conservative creators of wealth, even those who vote against their own best interests in the confusion, delaying the understanding of the stupidity in the programs offered because Conservative fearful Rinos too timid to obstruct them play along and finance that which destroys the Republican party’s chances to win.

    Look to the paradigm of Scott Walker in Wisconsin who went right to the jugular of what finances the liberals and defunded their ability to win elections over him. Why does the rest of the party not get it and quit voting to extend the debt, thereby extending the life of the liberal agenda?????? And the Liberal American destruction.

    Wake up Republicans, ,,,turn and face your fears and face the enemy who stands before you which are the lies and deceptions of a failed socialist ideology. Confrontational, obstructive Tea Party politics is not the problem, but the opportunity,,,for victory.

    Ann is so wrong. ANY “Republican”??? Really, if in fact the GOP gains a strong majority in the Senate, I do NOT see repeal support among the current crop of GOP leaders, NOT one iota.

    I do believe the GOPe will seek to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory to run off conservatives and TEA leaning individuals.

    I do NOT trust the GOP, nor have I nor will I send money to the party, just a particular candidate.
