Tennessee conservatives serious about replacing Alexander

Bye Bye LamarSen. Lamar Alexander took part in what was billed as a “salute to state GOP county chairs” in Smyrna, Tennessee on July 20. Only a handful of people showed up, despite the event being held in air conditioned comfort.

Attendance at the nearby “Beat Lamar” rally was actually larger in number, despite the 90-degree temperatures. The Beat Lamar event garnered national attention.

Check out this great video with some of the day’s highlights:

Alexander voted yes on the disastrous immigration amnesty bill, and continues to advocate for the unConstitutional and anti-American measure. Since then, momentum has rapidly increased among conservatives calling for a primary opponent to unseat the two-term incumbent. A recent look at the Lamar Alexander for Senate Facebook page reveals almost exclusively negative comments on every post by his campaign.

Potential primary challengers have nearly a year before the filing deadline, but a statewide series of candidate forums begins August 31. You can learn more about what the various Tennessee tea party groups are doing in this effort by liking the Beat Lamar Facebook page, and by following @BeatLamar on Twitter.

Tennessee conservatives are serious about replacing Lamar Alexander with a Constitutional conservative. That would be good not only for the 6 million people of Tennessee, but for the entire United States.

Sarah Palin wows CPAC 2013

Palin CPAC 13Watch as former Alaska governor Sarah Palin electrifies the crowd attending the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference. Bonus – she is introduced by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX):

Is Rep. Jim Bridenstein (R-OK) a rising conservative star?

Freshman Representative Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) may be a rising star in conservative politics.

Freshman Representative Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) may be a rising star in conservative politics.

The voters of Oklahoma’s first Congressional district wisely decided to send conservative Jim Bridenstine to Congress last fall. Bridenstine is a patriot and a veteran. More importantly, he is man of solid character who understands not only our founding principles, but also the current political climate in Washington, D.C. and the great dangers posed to our republic by Barack Hussein Obama and his crew of Constitution-hating radicals.

In an interview with the Tulsa World, Bridenstine said he suspects House Speaker John Boehner and other GOP leaders are likely to cave to Obama’s penchant for even greater tax increases, as Democrats are demanding:

My concern, and, I think the concern of a lot of Republicans in Congress, is that once the sequester takes effect, people are going to be screaming for a deal, and that deal ultimately is going to be what the President wants, to raise taxes. And if there’s enough pressure, Boehner will bring it to the floor, and 200 Democrats and 30 or 40 Republicans will vote for it, and once again, you’re going to have the Speaker caucusing with the Democrats.

Listen as conservative talk show host and author Mark Levin interviews Rep. Bridenstine:

Is this a man from whom we conservatives might expect great things?
