The Northwest Report
December 28, 2010
After careful analysis, we decided to compile a list of the top ten Tea Party crashers. The goal of the Tea Party is to restore liberty by re-establishing constitutional principles. With this in mind, those on this list are not Tea Party approved. Most, if not all, are Neo-conservatives. Neo-conservatism is just as destructive to liberty as other dangerous political ideologies.
The more you learn about Neo-conservatism, the more you learn it isn’t conservative; it is not Tea Party. Those who waved the Gadsden Flag during the 18th century wouldn’t dare sponsor the Tea Party co-opters on this list. The Tea Party was founded as a way to unite and revolt against all of those who tread on liberty.
1. Sarah Palin
She launched herself into the living rooms of Americans during her awesome 2008 RNC speech. Like many Americans, we fell in love with her. She’s a great speaker, very charismatic, and easy on the eyes. Just as with Barack Obama, those are not the qualifications to become the president. No offense Sarah, but would you allow Paris Hilton or George Clooney to operate on your heart? We’re sure she wouldn’t.
Unlike many, we’re not claiming she’s an idiot. It takes an incredible amount of intelligence and persistence to get to where she is. We’re concerned about her questionable track record and influential decision makers. No matter how charismatic and intelligent, Sarah Palin’s decisions are legally constrained by the U.S. Constitution.
One would like to assume that the president should fully understand the philosophy of liberty and the U.S. Constitution. As steadfast believers in the U.S. Constitution, we are worried about a few of her questionable decisions:
She helped vaporize our civil liberties. Sarah Palin endorsed the highly unconstitutional Patriot Act.
2. Interventionist Wars/The Military-Industrial Complex:
She developed close ties with AIPAC; a controversial international lobbying group dedicated to sending American soldiers overseas to kill and die for another country.
3. Connections to George Soros:
Randy Scheunemann is a member of Sarah Palin’s inner circle. He is her foreign policy adviser and has been paid $150,000 by a George Soros lobbying group.
4. Inconsistent Endorsement Record During the 2010 Mid-term Elections:
Sarah Palin endorsed authentic Tea Party candidates such as Rand Paul. However, she endorsed highly unconstitutional candidates such as Bilderberg Group associate Rick Perry over the Tea Party favorite Debra Medina. Was she playing politics or simply ignorant? Either way, we don’t like it.
5. She Supported TARP:
She supported the theft of trillions to bail out ruthless international bankers.
Sarah Palin is a United Nations Globalist: She promotes relinquishing our sovereignty to international bodies such as the United Nations. Ultimately, Sarah Palin appears to be the puppet of harmful international interests such as AIPAC and the globalist kingpin Henry Kissinger. The real Sarah Palin will undoubtedly continue the same unconstitutional policies that are responsible for America’s ills.
Judy Morris of Judy Morris for Peace, Liberty, and Prosperity stated it perfectly:
“For those Palininsta’s out there who consider Sarah Palin the magical elixir for a conservative revival, I want to caution that she is very much bought and paid for by the anti-sovereignty gangs that includes the United Nations, the CFR, the Bilderbergs and every other sovereignty slashing initiative devoted to global governance and the utter destruction of the Constitution of the United States of America. Simply put, Palin is an absolute fraud. Conservatives have been deceived for far too long by the likes of Bush 41, Bush 43, McCain, Palin and ilk.
Palin is on record supporting ratification of the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST), a sovereignty slashing UN global governance treaty that puts 70% of the earth’s surface under UN taxing authority and control. Moreover, LOST is also the equivalent of OPEC on steroids because it actually creates a global energy cartel.”
Sarah Palin essentially instructed Fox News viewers to vote for Newt Gingrich: “If I had to vote in South Carolina in order to keep this thing going, I would vote for Newt and I would want it to continue.”
2. Rush Limbaugh
We try to keep media personalities off the table since they are not publicly elected servants, but anyone can hijack a movement. Undoubtedly, Rush Limbaugh has a lot of influence and he uses this influence to shape the opinions of others. He cannot stop discussing and defending Sarah Palin. How can such a smart man become enamored with someone who has relatively little experience and knowledge when there are other political figures such as Ron Paul?
Is it because Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin are Neo-conservatives? Is it because Rush Limbaugh exclusively promotes people who will drag us into costly interventionist wars; something that is incredibly unconstitutional; something that is incredibly un-Tea Party? Although less attractive, Rush Limbaugh is the mirror image of Sarah Palin. Moreover, he brushes aside those who truly uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution.This is why Rush Limbaugh came in at number two: He’s Sarah Palin’s personal cheerleader.
3. Glenn Beck
Glenn Beck is the slimiest of all co-opters. He seems to talk a great game when it comes to the constitution and liberty, but he pulls the rug out from under those who uphold the U.S. Constitution during election season. He went as far as manipulating the audio of his interview with authentic Tea Party candidate Debra Medina. Glenn Beck also supported TARP and the Patriot Act; that he went out of his way to demonize Ron Paul supporters.
In the demonization video, ex-Marxist, now Neocon David Horowitz stated that Libertarian sites such as the highly respected lewrockwell.com are “totally in bed with the Islamo-fascists.” Although Glenn Beck continually goes after people like George Soros, he ignores the real masters.
Will Glenn Beck endlessly attack Sarah Palin because her foreign policy adviser is on the payroll of George Soros? We doubt it. This is why Glenn Beck was chosen as number three:
Do not trust Glenn Beck. He’s Judas Beck.
4. Paul Ryan
A quick glance at Paul Ryan’s voting record is enough to blow his cover. Republican Paul Ryan of Wisconsin is the definition of a Neocon in Tea Party clothing. He voted for the the multi-trillion dollar bankster bailout (TARP), the GM/Chrysler bailout, and CAFTA. We’re not sure why Paul Ryan is continually mentioned within the same breath as the Tea Party.
Does Paul Ryan go into the harbor with the tea?
- There’s no need to buy Paul Ryan’s (RepPaulRyan) Roadmap. A Roadmap for America’s Future? Paul Ryan’s Roadmap must be filled with potholes, detours, and dead ends.
- Ryan is also selling himself as one of the GOP Young Guns. This is one gun that should have a lock. No amount of money spent on clever marketing tactics will erase Paul Ryan’s voting record.
- Watch Paul Ryan beg Congress to vote for the $2 trillion TARP bankster bailout.
- Paul Ryan voted to extend parts of the highly unconstitutional Patriot Act.
Paul Ryan’s Federal Budget:
- Allows for 10 more years of deficit spending
- Adds between $5-11 TRILLION dollars to the national debt
- Spends $40 TRILLION over the next 10 years
- Will REQUIRE the debt ceiling to be raised
- Is an unbalanced budget (it doesn’t fully balance until the year 2040)
- Continues to increase spending over the next few years (it simply slows the rate of spending)
- Is bigger than the budget we had under Bill Clinton
5. Rick Perry
Texas Governor Rick Perry is relatively unknown to most Americans, but there are talks of a Sarah Palin and Rick Perry GOP ticket for 2012. Rick Perry has a checkered past when it comes to treading upon our liberties. Apparently, Rick Perry is a huge fan of the proposed Trans-Texas Corridor. The corridor is part of the NAFTA Superhighway projected to link the United States with Canada and Mexico as an integral cog of the North American Union. What says Tea Party more than an international superhighway?
Governor Rick Perry was also present at the 2007 secretive Bilderberg Group meeting in Istanbul, Turkey. Bilderberg conferences are closed to the public and the media; no press releases are issued. His visit could be a violation of the Logan Act; a 1799 law that criminalizes unauthorized U.S. citizens from negotiating with foreign governments.
A New World Order Tea Party guy? Don’t tread on me…Venus?
- Involvement in an insurance scam that sought profits from Teacher Life Insurance.
- Clueless about executive presidential powers to kill Obamacare.
- Signed an executive order that would have mandated 11- and 12-year-old girls to get Gardasil shots.
- Served as a state chairman of Al Gore’s presidential campaign.
- Texas Jobs: 25 states had a lower unemployment rate.
6. Marco Rubio
Florida Senator Marco Rubio is the male counterpart of Sarah Palin. We were introduced to Marco Rubio when this video was making the rounds. It’s undoubtedly a great speech and any unsuspecting Tea Party member would gladly support him.
Shockingly, Marco Rubio fled the states to meet with lobbyists from a foreign country less than a day after he became a Florida senator! That’s why Marco Rubio comes in at number four: He couldn’t wait until the ink dried on his senator label before fleeing his home country to serve another.
“Commerce with all nations, alliance with none, should be our motto.” -Thomas Jefferson
What country is Marco Rubio accountable to?
7. Richard Keith “Dick” Armey
Who would be better than the former GOP House Majority leader to co-opt the Tea Party?
At least Paul Ryan has the cajones to show his face in public when he’s busy co-opting the Tea Party movement. Instead, Dick Armey opts to use various AstroTurf Tea Party organizations. Dick Armey heads FreedomWorks and the Tea Party Express. Like a Cowboy, he enjoys corralling disenfranchised voters back into the same version of the GOP herd that is no different than the Democrat Party. Even Democrat leaning Politico and various traditionally conservative groups have caught onto Dick Armey’s sleazy co-opting ways.
“Critics ranging from prominent conservatives to bloggers to grass-roots Tea Party activists have called into question whether Armey’s stances on illegal immigration and social issues, his candidate endorsements and his past lobbying work are fundamentally inconsistent with the Tea Party movement. They also have suggested he raised the white flag too early in the fight over the Democratic health care overhaul and is beholden to corporate benefactors, and have accused him of trying to hijack the Tea Parties to serve those benefactors or his own personal political ambitions.”
- The Tea Party Express will support anyone who wins the GOP Presidential nomination. Even if it’s Mitt Romney.
- Corrupt intentions: The offenders include numerous front groups for the establishment Republican Party.
8. Allen West
Allen West didn’t get too far with the entire purpose of the Tea Party: To re-establish constitutional principles.
He couldn’t make it past the First Amendment!
Allen West on news: “…and I think that we also should be censoring the American news agencies which enabled him to do this [WikiLeaks] and also supported him and applauding him for the efforts. So that’s kind of aiding and abetting of a serious crime.”
Allen West also believes in American Exceptionalism: Code words for unconstitutional/interventionist wars that feeds the money hungry military-industrial complex. Would Mr. West would allow China to occupy Texas to take care of the failed war on drugs?
- Allen West voted to extend parts of the highly unconstitutional Patriot Act.
- Allen West voted AGAINST a $100,000,000 cut to Obamacare.
- “It’s pathetic how anyone with a camera nowadays can call themselves a reporter and post false info on the web.” – Rep. Allen West
- He actually attacked the Tea Party over the debt ceiling.
9. Chris Christie
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie hasn’t exactly claimed to be a part of the Tea Party, but some appear to love him. It seems that many Republicans who identify themselves as part of the Tea Party are easily pleased when a politician does part of their job. Is it impressive enough to overshadow his love for Cap and Trade? This is the same defunct Cap and Trade energy policy that failed in Europe. Wouldn’t Cap and Trade cost us more than Teacher Unions?
The same Republicans who crucified Barack Obama and the Democrat Party for pushing Cap and Trade are now worshiping Chris Christie.
Cap and Trade would devastate small communities that are dependent on energy rich sources such as coal. Moreover, Cap and Trade is based on the Global Warming fraud designed to fatten the wallets of our government overlords. Chris Christie also endorsed fellow RINO Mike Castle and he’s not a big fan of the Tea Party.

10. Michele Bachmann
Michele Bachmann of Minnesota made it in by the skin of her teeth. Michele co-sponsored a bill that extended the highly unconstitutional Patriot Act bill. In addition to raping our civil liberties, she also cosponsored the “America Stands with Israel Act.”
Our Founding Fathers warned against entangling alliances for many valid reasons. Michele is pro-interventionism and co-sponsored a bill that vaporizes our precious civil liberties. She also created the Tea Party Caucus. You can’t co-opt the Tea Party movement more than that.
Voted YES on $192B additional anti-recession stimulus spending. (Jul 2009)
Voted YES on overriding veto on expansion of Medicare. (Jul 2008)
Voted NO on investigating Bush impeachment for lying about Iraq. (Jun 2008)
Voted NO on redeploying US troops out of Iraq starting in 90 days. (May 2007)
Voted YES to EXTEND THE PATRIOT ACT “Spy-On-Citizens” Provisions
Voted YES on HR 5140 Economic Stimulus Plan (Feb 2008)
Voted YES on HR 6331 override a veto on a bill that expands Medicare (July 2007)
Voted YES on HR 3548 Providing Homebuyer Tax Credits (Nov 2009)
Michele Bachmann voted to extend parts of the highly unconstitutional Patriot Act.
Late to the Tea Party. Honorable Mentions:
Herman Cain has statist establishment written all over him. Are they not trying anymore?
From what we gather, Herman Cain gained a following simply because Frank Luntz staged a laughable infomercial immediately following the South Carolina Republican Debate on Fox News. Click here (profanity) if you’re unfamiliar with the master manipulator Frank Luntz. At one point, Fox News (Frank Luntz) was caught using the same actor during two of their “focus groups.”
- Cain endorsed Mitt Romney during the 2008 election cycle. Mitt Romney is well known for creating universal healthcare in Massachusetts, otherwise known as Romneycare.
- He was a big supporter of the 2008 TARP Wall Street bailouts.
- Herman Cain is a former director and chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.
- He believes there shouldn’t be an independent audit of the Federal Reserve.
- Herman Cain attacked those who challenged his pro-TARP bankster bailout position as “free market purists.”
