Guest Post

Glenn Beck, the conservative/libertarian radio host, announced today that he is no longer a member of the Republican Party. He joins his colleague at The Blaze, Dana Loesch, who has also left the GOP.

Beck said, “I’ve made my decision –- I’m out. I’m out of the Republican Party. I am not a Republican; I will not give a dime to the Republican Party. I’m out. I highly recommend –- run from the Republican Party. They are not good.”

“They’re torpedoing the Constitution and they’re doing it knowingly. … So I’m done with them,” Beck continued. “Four years ago, I was with them. Four years ago, I said work from the inside: let’s change it. Let’s get new guys in there. It’s too late.”

Beck achieved national fame on Fox News and launched his own news site, TheBlaze, in 2011.

The 10 reasons Beck left the GOP are:

Flashback: The 2010 Delaware U.S. Senate Race

Erick Erickson of Red State has once again written his efforts in one of the top Tea Party triumphs of 2010. Five years later he is still proud of his role.

Erickson writes, “In Delaware, many conservative, myself included, made the conscious decision that it would be far better to have the Democrat win than Rep. Mike Castle because of what Castle would do whispering in the ears of Republican leaders. Few of us thought Christine O’Donnell could win. But Sarah Palin and Jim DeMint get particular blame for their endorsements.”

O’Donnell received tremendous national attention that year and her nomination changed the focus away from the economy and Obamacare. Reporters instead wrote about O’Donnell’s opposition to pre-marital sex, masturbation and pornography, and her links to witchcraft. After winning the nomination on September 15th, she hid from the media for three weeks.

O’Donnell claimed to have a master’s degree during her first campaign when she did not have a college degree. She had no job during the five preceding years, and had been fired by a conservative organization.

Guest Post

This is the change we can believe in. The eight years of Democratic rule are over and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is now in power. The first two bills of the GOP Senate are authorizing the Keystone XL pipeline and placing sanctions on Iran.

Most conservatives are thrilled but the libertarian group FreedomWorks and radio host Glenn Beck are not among them. Beck claims, “McConnell is as big of a danger to our country as Barack Obama is.” He calls McConnell a “progressive on the right” and says he is not doing enough to stop Obamacare.

Tuesday primaries hand defeat to MS, OK tea party candidates

By Lynn R. Mitchell

Results from the Mississppi and Oklahoma primaries Tuesday night show losses by tea party candidates. Political pundit Gregg Hilton wrote about Mississippi:

SENATOR COCHRAN WINS: In another huge setback for the Tea Party, Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) has very narrowly won renomination by defeating State Sen. Chris McDaniel. AP has declared him the victor by a 50.9% to 49.1% margin.

McDaniel was ahead of Cochran in the primary, but that was reversed in tonight’s run-off.

Practically all of the polls were predicting a McDaniel victory. The liberal Daily Kos claims “We will see some real ugliness in the coming days, as the Tea Party realizes that alleged-RINO Cochran pulled out an unexpected victory with a big assist from black voters.”
