A Super PAC’s War on the ‘Tea Party Ten’

Pages: 1 2

A well-funded leftist group is targeting 10 Tea Party-backed congressmen because they believe in the Constitution, limited government, and fiscal responsibility and oppose President Obama’s socialist juggernaut.

But Becky Bond, president of Credo Super PAC, puts it another way.

“They are anti-woman. They are anti-science. They are hypocritical, bigoted, and have said and done things that are downright crazy,” says Bond, a Saul Alinsky-inspired community organizer.

What exactly have these Republican lawmakers done to stir up this kind of hatred among leftists? Answer: they’ve acted like conservatives.

Rep. Allen West (R-FL) is being targeted because he’s unapologetically pro-Israel and pro-life, positions that got him labeled “racist” and “sexist” by Bond’s group. Because West backed Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) very modest budget-balancing proposal Credo has falsely accused him of voting “to abolish Medicare.”

An Iraq war veteran, West calls Islam “a totalitarian theocratic political ideology.”

Pretty crazy, huh?

Credo is especially afraid of West because he’s “a national rising star in the Tea Party,” who “is going to start to define” what the Republican Party stands for.

“And he’s a freshman,” Bond said June 18 at the Campaign for America’s Future’s Take Back the American Dream conference in Washington, D.C. “If we don’t take him down now, he’s raising millions of dollars, and he’s going to set what the new normal is for the Republican Party.”

Credo Super PAC was created by Credo Mobile, the wireless reseller that donates part of its profits to left-wing groups such as the George Soros-funded Media Matters for America, ACORN-affiliated Project Vote, Color of Change, and the Sierra Club Foundation.

Credo Mobile president Michael Kieschnick, a member of George Soros’s Democracy Alliance, boasts that his company’s activist network has given upwards of $70 million to left-wing groups since 1985. Credo Super PAC has raked in nearly $2 million so far, according to the Federal Election Commission database. Patricia Richardson of TV’s “Home Improvement” and movie actress Stockard Channing have given the PAC $1,000 and $750, respectively.

West is one target of Credo Super PAC’s “Take Down the Tea Party Ten” campaign. Eight enemies have been selected so far. The other Tea Party-friendly Republican congressmen with bullseyes painted on them are Steve King (IA), Dan Lungren (CA), Mike Fitzpatrick (PA), Joe Walsh(IL), Frank Guinta (NH), Sean Duffy (WI), and Chip Cravaack (MN). It is not clear when the final two members of the Tea Party Ten will be named.

        "Well funded" By whom?

  • pierce

    What is wrong with fiscal responsibility, which is one of the tenets that the Tea Party stands for, and advocates.
    Nothing. All they are asking government, is to abide by the same principals that rule families and businesses.
    I don't and won't contribute to the Tea Party, but I sure as hell believe in what they stand for. Dave Koffer you have to be an absolute idiot, and marxist.

    Life is a zero-sum game to Becky Bond; so when Romney wins in November, we should deal with her the way that the Dhimmicrats would deal with conservatives, if the Dhimmicrats win. Put her on a leaky old boat, with a one-way ticket out of the country-wherever she chooses.

    • Guest

      Romney will not only not win, he will be soundly defeated. The northeastern republican machine has shown themselves to not be conservative and downright liberal in many ways. The group I jang with has decided we will not be part of voting for the lesser of two evils. We will await the destruction caused by liberal democrats and try to rebuild.

        You are what's commonly known as a D^mned FOOL,
        You and your "group" are clearly as TREASONOUS as the LEFT.
        You are worried about your part being straight while your hair is on fire.

          Maybe you should go to blackboxvoting.org to understand the truth and what you are truly up against. I have personal experience in exposing the election fraud using this system since 2005. Anyone who still supports and believes this illusion of left/right nonsense is in for a truly rude awakening. The elections in this country are a blatant fraud being done right in front of your face. Both parties. Libertarian movement has been co -opted as well. I should know as that would be the party i was supporting now for over 15 years. Wake up now or lose the country to a bolshevick style government that is very entrenched and ready for your response when you figure it out.

        Might as well move to North Korea and start from scratch there, won't you?

    Being attacked by liberals is the political equivalent of earning the CMH!

    VIVA, El Diez!

      Obama doesn't count on the blow back that's coming this November by the average American. These people still don't have jobs and homes.

      • Looking4Sanity

        Hmm. No job. No home. No reason not to go to the polls in November, is there? I wonder how THOSE people are going to vote? LOL!

        • 4_Constitution

          No kidding! The average American is going to set the alarm clock even though they don't have a job and a house……Obama's outta there!

          I know my hubby and I want to be first in line.

          This puny little bully has NO idea what's in store for him. He doesn't understand us…AT ALL. We've survived civil wars, world wars and we know how to kick ass and take names! :o)

    Nazi-form from Soros and Marxism from Obama have united: Obamasoros, the monster from the depths also known as Leviathan.

    We must defeat Obama and his socialistic policies and get America back to the constitution.

    The Code of Ethics for U.S. Government Service, adopted by the House of Representatives July 11, 1958 with the Senate concurring, resolved that it is the sense of the Congress that the following Code of Ethics should be adhered to by all Government employees, including all officeholders. The first two requirements state that any person in Government service should:
    1. Put loyalty to the highest moral principles and to country above loyalty to Government persons, party, or department.
    2. Uphold the Constitution, laws, and legal regulations of the United States and of all governments therein and never be a party to their evasion.
    Democrat and many RINO members of Congress continue to be derelict in their duty and violate their oaths of office to support and defend the Constitution daily.

    This upcoming election will produce no different conditions if we don't get out and campaign! Donate! Go door to door! Ask people to vote! Ask if they are registered to vote! Register them yourself! Drive them to the polls! A click of the mouse won’t do it! We can't just sit at our internet!

    We may not have it much longer if we get a Deja Vu!!!

    I don’t want to live on my knees, do you?

    If we don't quit straightening the deck chairs while the ship is sinking, I'm afraid our nation is sick to death!!

  • Chey

    Who in the hell is Becky Bond to call Allen West a racist? This is an example of how stupid these people are. What they don't seem to know is that their ranks have produced converts to conservatism,who haven't forgotten what they were taught. Becky Bond and her fellow crazies had better watch their own backs.

    The horrible problem the left sees in the Tea Party candidates is that they can and are winning. the Tera Party represents everything the left hates in our Republic. The form of government, The constitution, individual responsibility, belief in Jesus Christ; but most of all The Tea Party candidates are challenging left wing candidates and the left can lose. The left sees its power dwindling with each Tea Party candidate win. The ultra left fears, abjectly fears, a hard right, true blue, American government whose principles the left can not compromise. The Tea Party is the cutting edge of that Constitutionally strong America that can not be cursed or caused to become the Marxist the left wants so badly and sees slipping away so quickly.
