Michele Bachmann is less than perfect. She supported the “surge” in Iraq and the neocon warmonger positions of the neocons during the Bush regime. She supported the presidential campaign of John McCain. However, Bachmann has lately adopted a more Libertarian stance and supports the grassroots tea party movement. She has opposed and spoken out against Obamacare, the Wall Street bailout, and AmeriCorps. Because she is outspoken and has deviated, if incrementally, from the standard Republican line, the corporate media, in particular MSNBC, has habitually criticized and lampooned her.

But that’s apparently not enough. Democrats and so-called progressives (regressives for personal liberties) are determined to destroy her political career.
A district of criminals-based “watchdog” group is calling for a House probe of Bachmann because her website mentioned the tea party rally in Washington. “Taxpayers fund members’ websites and because of that those sites may not be used to organize a public rally for or against any particular legislation,” notes Melanie Sloan, executive director of CREW, short for Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.
CREW states in a press release:
CREW also asked OCE to determine if Rep. Bachmann and other members violated House rules by failing to acquire a permit for the Nov. 5 rally and by falsely calling the event a “press conference,” though no questions were asked by the media. Politico quoted from a Republican Study Committee email directing staff members to “please make sure your boss does not term this event a rally.” A Capitol Police spokeswoman confirmed the lawmakers had no permit for a demonstration. In a TV interview, however, Rep. Bachmann urged opponents of the bill “to come to Washington, D.C. by the car load.”
“Whoever heard of a press conference without questions?” asked Sloan. “Calling a rally a press conference to circumvent congressional rules is like calling a Hummer a Prius to meet fuel efficiency standards.” Sloan continued, “The OCE needs to make clear that members must abide by all rules, even those they find politically inconvenient.”
Bachmann’s office said she “encourages the American people to exercise their right to petition” and the congresswoman’s advertisements were within the confines of House rules.As it turns out, CREW is funded by Democracy Alliance, a Soros controlled organization. Democracy Alliance has gone out of its way to hide that it funds Democrat and “progressive” groups such as ACORN, the Sierra Club (also funded by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund), and the dismally failed Air America Radio. Anna Burger, the secretary-treasurer of Service Employees International Union (SEIU), is vice chair of the Democracy Alliance. Earlier this year, SEIU goons attacked tea party members in Missouri.
Bachmann is the target du jour of Democrats because she supports the tea party movement and has moved closer to positions held by Ron Paul and the Libertarians. Mainstream Republicans in general oppose the constitutional precepts of Ron Paul. In October, for instance, the neocon Sen. Lindsey Graham. “I’m going to grow this party. I’m not going to let it be hijacked by Ron Paul,” said Graham at a town hall meeting in Greenville, South Carolina.
“Graham, a deal-maker who has worked to build consensus on key issues, is a political ally and personal friend of Paul’s 2008 presidential primary opponent, Arizona Sen. John McCain. He said he wants to rebuild a ‘big tent’ GOP,” The Wall Street Journal reported on October 14, 2009.
Graham’s “big tent” is reserved for big government statists and warmongering neocons, not constitutionalists like Ron Paul. Michele Bachmann is no Ron Paul, but her incremental move toward his constitutional stance has made her a preferred target for the Soros Democrats.
It remains to be seen if they will manage to bounce her out of the House. Stay tuned.
