McCain, and Ryan.

When was the Tea Party a nevertrump movement? We must be getting different sets of emails from them.

Surely you guys know that there is no Central Tea Party Office.  Anything signed "Tea Party" could be from anyone.

(Sorry for all the pop-ups, banners, and fake ads. Just click the X's
or reload. It's that notorious "command center." Content is worth the effort, IMHO)  Basically, this is an inforwars piece, naming Graham,
McCain, and Ryan. Poor Tea Party has to rely on Facebook to handle comments function.  That's what you get for being never trumpers.

Divisive statements like this only helps keep progs in the power seat. TEA activities have done a LOT for this nation since our beginning. Just one recent instance when the House Freedom Caucus prevented the first version of RINO-care from passing. The HFC would not exist if TEA association had not forced TEA nominations on the RNC.

AS for "relying on facebook" - why don't you explain exactly how conservatives keeping our fact based opinions limited to conservative discussion sites going to make a difference? Sure, we can feel good discussing things among like minded people (which is why I post here), but if we want to make a difference, we also need to be spreading our message where others hang out. And while hard-core progs are beyond any hope of actual cognitive activity, there are a lot of people whose only drawback is their willingness to use MSM as their primary information source. Giving people like that an alternate view - backed by real facts - can make a difference.

And, final point (which has been mentioned above) there is no single, nation wide TEA organization. Anyone who claims to be so is simply in it for the money, as they will invariably end up asking for donations. Teaparty.org is a good example. TEA associations tend to be relatively small - a few thousand down to less than a hundred. And, just in case people are confused, TEA is NOT a political party. We are a collection of political groups organized almost exclusively at the local level, with a modicum of state wide communication between groups when actively seeking/promoting conservative candidates over RNC picks.

So was I, almost from the start. 2009. Forgive me for gloating, but I was run off a tea party site for being a Trump supporter.  I should just forget. (Corrections noted and made.)

I was a Cruz supporter for the majority of the primaries, and admit to being disappointed when it became obvious Trump was going to carry the nomination. Doesn't mean I was ever specifically ANTI-Trump - other than mistrusting his past support of the demoncraps - I just felt Cruz would have done us better.

Once the primaries were done, I supported Trump, and have been very pleased with the majority of what he has done since winning the EC. Couple things I did not like (one of which is biting Trump in the nethers as we speak - keeping Comey) but for the most part he has done more to keep campaign promises than literally any other politician in my 40+ years of political awareness.

I hope that is the reason, not that the priority is putting the money in the site owners' pockets rather than spend a buck and get someone to
set up and maintain a site based comment section ...or, you could simply link to (left wing) FB and be done with it.

I got tired of Teaparty.org asking for donations all the time, knowing that TEA associations activities rarely need money for what we do. Not to mention the way they designed their FB page, they get plenty of ad revenue.

OTOH, I can appreciate that they do spread news from a conservative POV on a prog-dominated outlet.
