Conservatives/Tea Party..Clean out your own ranks first!!
With the over inflated confab of CPAC coming up, we've been talking much lately about 'the enemy within'.
And mostly what that 'enemy' is up to is mislabeling and destroying in the public view everything decent about the conservative/tea party movement, as if the left needed any help.
An article from the Washington Post in February outlines how lobbyists like Grover Norquist, and political want to be's like Marco Rubio, included in McCain's gang of eight, are undermining decent organizations who actually have our best interests in mind.
The following articles give insight into big amnesty boss Grover Norquist, but also Marco Rubio, who according to the article, refused to allow what he called ‘anti immigrant’ groups such as Numbers USA, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), and the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) a voice in the discussion. Rubio & Norquist are both aligned with the lying, treacherous SPLC on this one and are using SPLC material and propaganda to silence them!
You cannot fight an enemy when you don't know or REFUSE to know who they are!
Read it and weep....then DO something about it!
Effort to change immigration law sparks internal battle within GOP
Conservatives who are taking on the groups, including Rubio, anti-tax activist Grover Norquist and officials of the Catholic Church, argue that the three organizations are motivated by far different philosophies than many of their Republican allies realize.
Rubio’s aides last week brought one of the organizers of the effort to undermine the groups, Mario H. Lopez, a party strategist on Hispanic politics, to a regular meeting of GOP Senate staffers, at which Lopez distributed literature about the groups’ backgrounds and connections. Rubio also raised concerns about the groups’ leanings during a recent conference call on immigration with conservative activists.
Rubio’s spokesman, Alex Conant, said the senator “has argued that some groups that oppose legal immigration should not be considered part of the conservative coalition,”

Grover Norquist Attempting to Smear Anti-Amnesty Groups as Leftist Eugenicists
February 15, 2013
[snip]At the heart of the attack is the accusation that the leading members of some groups critical of immigration policy were or still are environmentalists and liberals. This attack piggybacks on earlier work by the Southern Poverty Law Center that used some of the same information to accuse those groups of being tied to Neo-Nazi and White Supremacist groups.
There’s something rather strange when “conservative sites” not only begin advocating for illegal alien amnesty, but begin repeating the claims that the Center for American Progress, Mother Jones and the Southern Poverty Law Center were making about anti-immigration groups 5-10 years ago.
The same Norquist tactics being used to attack the anti-immigration movement can and will be used to attack the Counterjihadist camp.
NOTE: Teaparty.net and TheTeaPartyNewsNetwork (TPNN) are fundraisers for lobbyists and 'community organizers'...BE CAREFUL which group you align with!
MUST READ mention!
Robert Spencer: Why I am not a conservative

[snip]So if Mitt Romney is a conservative, which he undoubtedly is, then I must not be one. And then there is Grover Norquist, who is even more of a conservative than Mitt Romney. Norquist’s conservative bona fides are impeccable: as the leader of Americans for Tax Reform, he has a huge base of supporters among fiscal conservatives and the politicians who want their votes. But he also has extensive ties to Islamic supremacists. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) called Norquist out for this on the House floor in October 2011, saying of the anti-tax hero: “Documentation shows that he has deep ties to supporters of Hamas and other terrorist organizations that are sworn enemies of the United States and our ally Israel.” He pointed out that “around the years 2000 and 2001, Mr. Norquist’s firm represented Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was convicted two years later for his role in a terrorist plot and who is presently serving a 23-year sentence in federal prison.”
Despite this, however, Norquist remains such a powerful force among conservatives that he is a feared eminence gris at CPAC. Last year, his protege (and another conservative with extensive ties to Islamic supremacist Muslim Brotherhood groups) Suhail Khan boasted to me that I had been barred from speaking at CPAC because I dared to question the Muslim Brotherhood ties of some of its foremost figures.
