Bayshore Tea Party Promises Primaries

Monmouth GOP Chairman John O. Bennett III invited Bayshore Tea Party Group Co-Founder Barbara Gonzalez to speak at the GOP Unity Breakfast last Saturday.

Gonzalez and fellow co-founder Robert Gordon responded on Monday by issuing a statement to say something that Gonzalez forgot to say to the Unity gathering on Saturday:  Every Republican can expect a primary if they don’t do what the Tea Party wants them to do.

Here’s the statement:

Sometimes, we have the opportunity to say what we think to a group of people, but later wish we had said more.  MOST times, we still need to get our opinion out there one way or another regardless of who is or isn’t listening or who does or does not care.  Barbara had the opportunity to speak at the Republican Unity Breakfast on Saturday. We truly appreciate that opportunity since we are not  elected officials.  We thank John Bennett for giving us the opportunity.  Since Barbara did not expect to speak, she wasn’t able to have anything prepared but we think she covered it pretty well.  We did want to add one thing however, in thinking back on the points that were made.  We wanted to add that as angry as we are at the left, we are also very angry with the Republicans. Some of the decisions that have been made not only on a national level, but on a local level, would have our Founding Fathers turning in their graves.  The GOP needs to understand that THIS is why there is a TEA party.  Not just to defeat Obama but to make sure that the Republican party, whom we are more closely aligned with, will do what they promised to do.  Some have drifted so far left, that one would think they were progessive democrats.  Some have hurt feelings because we did not support them.  This is not about feelings….this is about doing their job and doing what they were elected to do.  Most of us admit that we haven’t paid enough attention and it’s partially our fault for letting this happen, but now that we see what our representatives have done, we are very much aware and awake.  There will be no more compromises.  We did not come on board for this election with our tail between our legs.  It was because of the constitutional ruling on Obamacare that we see  what we must do.  Make no mistake……if Senator Kyrillos, Anna Little and Mitt Romney do not do as they promised, We can predict how the TEA party groups will react.  We see every Republican being primary-ed no matter what the result.  We see a new party arising.  We implore the Republican party to get on board with the TEA party and participate in a full scale grassroots campaign to raise awareness and turn this election into a landslide.   After announcing at the “UNITY” breakfast on Saturday that we were having a Repeal Obamacare Rally the next day, and asking the Republicans to join us….one man and his son came.  ONE MAN AND HIS SON!
Not an auspicious start!
We will leave it at that.

These people must think they’ve actually won something.

  1. Waaaaaaaa, Waaaaaaaaaa, Waaaaaaaaaaa said at 5:59 pm on July 3rd, 2012:

    We want to get our way. This is unity? Show up at the breakfast and then on Monday say what you didn’t have the guts to say on Saturday Babs? You know what you were thinking, you knew what is in your heart and in your game plan. Have the guts to say it.

    You know, it was damn hot Sunday, maybe people wanted to stay cool. How much notice did you give other than at the breakfast?

    Me thinks it’s you who has the hurt feelings. Besides, your little darling Anna got what she wanted as chair, the good old boys network Part Deux

  2. No surprise said at 6:45 pm on July 3rd, 2012:

    Same old, same old from the local wing of the Democrat Party. Let’s see, John Bennett was gracious enough to let her speak and what happens next? Threats and trashing of Republicans. In the selfish world of the BSTP, Republicans should have ignored the water crisis that affected most of Monmouth County and stood on the side of the road waving signs. The BSTP is the best thing that ever happened to the democrats who are destroying this country. So, here’s the lesson. If you don’t go along with every silly, meaningless stunt the BSTP comes up with, you will be primaried. I guess after the backstabbing poor Joe Kyrillos got from these two-faced whiners, nothing should surprise us. Yet they support Anna Little, who screwed the people of the Highlands by voting along with the liberal Democrats to cozy up to the unions. Go figure.

  3. Name said at 6:57 pm on July 3rd, 2012:

    What’s remarkable is that there was a Unity Breakfast and zero coverage either prior to or since on this blog.

  4. Unity Breakfast overall report?? said at 7:12 pm on July 3rd, 2012:

    Yes, name – was wondering about no report as well. I would have gone even just for curiosity sake to see who showed, who didn’t etc. if not for family reunion over the past weekend. No one on behalf of MMM in attendance? Love to hear about it from anyone who was there – small or large crowd, what kind of mix? Who else spoke? Atmosphere?

  5. Bob who???? said at 7:29 pm on July 3rd, 2012:

    Oh no—all seven cultists will run a primary. This from a group who supported every single candidate that wasn’t named Romney and now want us to rally around them??? And how did their darling Bader do??? How’s that Ron Paul revolution shaping up????
    Elephants have looong memories Babs.

  6. Hold on there sister said at 8:09 pm on July 3rd, 2012:

    You sure know how to upset the apple cart. Where do you get off threatening and think it will help you? Give you an inch and you take the TP back a mile -plus some. You need to be able to stand among us not dictate to anyone! It’s a complete turn off, deafening to most ears when you stand on your soap bix as the dictator! Talk about constitutional rights, learn to practice what you preach! We will not always agree with each and every issue, that’s life, that’s America, that’s our Freedom!
    Stop your dictatorship! You give Republicans and TP a bad name.

  7. Politicalpony said at 8:27 pm on July 3rd, 2012:

    Hey Art,
    Could you point out what paragraph and line where it said “if you don’t do as we say we will primary you”?

    Yes I agree that the group shouldn’t have posted an after thought. But lets be honest with ourselves. We all know their isn’t barely an elected official in Trenton or Washington that knows, understand or cares about the constitution nor do they care about any of us. This goes for Republicans and Democrats. But of course many of you won’t admit to it. Perhaps because you think maybe someday it could be you in the position in which to rule. Maybe some of you just want to be like hyenas and run with the pack. I dont believe any of you have true American Ruggedness in you. All any of you seem to do is suck up tho a bunch of weak, all about me, what new law can I create to look important nobodies. Here’s some toilet paper, you all need to wipe your nose.

    Lets get this straight. All of you that have posted in here and want to knock others, you all think the Republicans in this state or in the national party really give a damned about you? Are they really looking out for you as they manipulate redistricting maps, holding your taxes that should come back to your cities and towns? They all go along together and give your money to private business then you get charged higher electric rates for solar energy and other such nonsense that doesn’t work? Are you people really this stupid? You should be on the phone in emails and in their office everyday reminding them of where they screwed up!

    You people make me sick. Each and everyone of you are no different that the low no count thief politicians.

    Art, show me where it says do it our way or we’ll primary you. And frankly, I think thats one helluva good idea. These SOB’S, most of them didn’t even have the guts to save your tax dollars when Christy vetoed a bill that would have rightfully brought our money back to our towns. They ABSTAINED? Know what I say? Your all just as coward as the politicians. They can’t stand in their own two feet when faced with a problem all for the sake of the party and you all continue to stand up and defend then like their doing something.

    I don’t care who you think you are and I dont care who they think they are! Everyone stinks when they $ hit, and Trenton is a cesspool. Oh, and you all are the wide leaf weeds that feed on top of it.

  8. Politicalpony said at 8:39 pm on July 3rd, 2012:

    And there can be no more compromise. Look at what compromise got us. Government isn’t about compromise when you give up your freedom and liberties. Thats called giving in. Thats called dirty dish water. Thats being a flimsy wet wash rag. Do you know what I do with a wet wash rag? I clean my ass with it.

  9. horses ass said at 9:04 pm on July 3rd, 2012:

    Since you seem to endlessly pontificate while saying nothing here is your option.Run for office to dazzle us with your knowledge and courage or STFU.

  10. Lois said at 9:05 pm on July 3rd, 2012:

    Phil, do you have to be so gross? You made your points—–and then dove straight into the sewer.

    Do we have any standards at all folks?? i find that final remark to be totally disgusting. Would like to see an understanding that we keep our discussions here at a bit higher level…

  11. Alright Political Pony said at 9:10 pm on July 3rd, 2012:

    Enough with the potty mouth talk

  12. You Too Horse's Rear End said at 9:12 pm on July 3rd, 2012:

    Enough with the dirty trash talk.

  13. TR said at 9:13 pm on July 3rd, 2012:

    I am not in the least bit intimidated. Such arrogance. Arrogance is the poision that kills every politician and it will kill these people (figurativly speaking, don’t anybody get their panties in a knot).

    And Bennett panders to these people. In the words of a famous rabbit. “what a maroon”

  14. Give me a break said at 9:32 pm on July 3rd, 2012:

    I am so sick of this “do what we say or else crap” from Babs and her shrinking band of followers. And politicalpony, get off your high horse. You are a know it all who knows nothing. You are one of those high and mighty windbags who wouldn’t know how to win an election, or get something done in office if it came up and bit you in the butt.

  15. Art Gallagher said at 9:39 pm on July 3rd, 2012:

    @ Politicalpotty:

    “Art, show me where it says do it our way or we’ll primary you.”

    Make no mistake……if Senator Kyrillos, Anna Little and Mitt Romney do not do as they promised, We can predict how the TEA party groups will react. We see every Republican being primary-ed no matter what the result. We see a new party arising

  16. Politicalpony said at 10:26 pm on July 3rd, 2012:

    Art, I’m still waiting for you to show me where that was said.
    But make no mistake. rightly so they should all be un-elected. Not even a second chance. they have had plenty of time to get it right and never have done so. I yes, happen to agree that the whole damned face of every one of them should be changed. Not one of them know or care to know the constitution. All they ever want to do is make laws and regulations that stop us from being who we are.

    Hey Horses Ass, you named yourself just right.

    @ “You Too Horse’s Rear End” you should have given yourself the name Jackass. From now on that’s what I’ll call you.

    Other than Art himself, I only see one person in here brave enough to post as themselves or by a handle which everyone knows them by. You all are nothing but Chickenshit punks. A bunch of wannabe politicians. All I and most the rest of us want to be is ….. LEFT THE HELL ALONE! But oh no, the people in Government think we need them so badly. We wouldn’t know when the sunrises if not for them.

    I didn’t see any one of you admit that I was right in my earlier posts. All I got was told not to have a dirty mouth. Well the truth must hurt eh? Have another roll of toilet paper, I think you missed a spot.

    I don’t see not one of you doing anything to help stop the destruction of our state and our country. You all have your little club and that’s just fine with you. You worthless idiots. Cowards every last one of you. Next time try coming in here under a name that most everyone knows instead of hiding. Baby brat kindergarten school yard punks is all you are.

  17. Give me a break said at 10:55 pm on July 3rd, 2012:

    Another snide, pompous post from politicalpony. You see everyone, he is so far superior to the rest of us that we have no hope of living up to his lofty standards. He is a much better conservative, citizen, intellect, and political mind, we should all just cower in the corner and marvel at his superiority. You know something, I am amazed that he hasn’t run for office just to show us peasants how it’s done. What a putz.

  18. P-Pony said at 2:28 am on July 4th, 2012:

    And you wonder why you will stand alone in the end. Compromise is give and take and vice verse. Why is it always your way or no way, to hell with all those who may disagree with your values and beliefs? Unfortunately you can’t please all the people all the time, but in order to achieve your true goals, you may have to concede/ compromise and choose your battles wisely at times for the greater good. Sometimes it goes in your favor and other times, not! Stalemates do not solve anything, it’s a cop out most times. You in some, you lose some. Your way no no way … Will get you nowhere quick.
    Time to grow up P-Pony, put your big boy pants on and pony up- start living life with open eyes and not a closed mind. You’ll see how productive it can be

  19. Politicalpony said at 7:07 am on July 4th, 2012:

    Hey P(issdant) pony, go find your own name. As for compromise, you do not compromise on core values. You compromise when you dont hold values. The constitution is clear. There is no compromise. You either follow it or you lose. Currently we are losing. The left uses compromise. They cry about compromise, we meet them in the middle. They once again cry about compromise and again we meet them in the middle. Eventually they have everything their way. The Republican party has done this for decades. There is no more compromise to be had. It’s all their way now. You and others that still feel we should be compromising are blind to reality. Get done foundation under you. Stop excepting the status quo. Stop excepting Socialism. Screw the consensus it’s time to start doing whats right. Stop running with the pack. No one in the pack is going to save you when you fall down. They’ll keep running to save their own hide, leaving you to the creeps and the animals. I’ll bet that not one of you in here would lift a finger to help another if you thought it might cost you something. Your all still in denial of whats going in around you. The path is about to end and theres a brick wall ahead. Keep sucking up to these people in a party and at some point you’ll fall and they are going to leave you to duffer on your own just like a wild animal would in order to save themselves.I know many of you up close and personal, and I know your character. Frankly, you know I dont pull no punches. I call them like I see them. And I see weakness in character among many of you unfortunately. And yes although I may not be perfect, I know what I stand for and will stand up for it even if it’s not the likable thing among others. As for must of you, I do believe you’d rather go with the flow just to be liked. I wish I could say that I feel sorry for you, but I can’t. Your all old enough to know right from wrong. But you need to practice doing whats right. It’s never to late to do so, you simply need to recognize it and move forward. I’ve waisted enough if my time here, now it’s up to you. Right or wrong, what will you do? Stop kissing the ass of the party.

  20. You Happy Now Political Pony? said at 8:55 am on July 4th, 2012:

    Your language is atrocious, disgusting and foul. You are an insulting jerk. And I do PLENTY to help stop the destruction of this country.

    Now, go crawl back into the hole you crawled out of trying to make yourself feel important.

    This is why I rarely post here anymore. The comments are becoming truly insulting from jerks like you, Ambrosia and even Bob English who think they know everything and are God’s gift to the world.

    Cool people are getting fiesty.
    Politicalpony is slamming us for using fake names. Am I supposed to know who Mr. Pony is? Can somebody fill me in?

  22. The Truth said at 9:36 am on July 4th, 2012:

    John Bennett is in for it now. He kissed the BSTP ring and now he thinks throwing them a bone at his unity breakfast is the end of it? LOL! He has no idea what he is in for…and he and his band of cronies deserve every threat from this group that comes his way.

    You cannot please the BSTP. Ever. Even THEY don’t know what they want, as evidenced by this latest stunt.

    All this Gonzalez woman wants is attention. She wants to feel important.

    End of story.

    Happy 4th of July to all.

    Have to admit that I never thought I would be attacked under a post called “Bayshore Tea Party Promises Primaries.”

  25. To political pony I refer to as P- Pony said at 12:32 pm on July 4th, 2012:

    1. No one would want your name, I addressed you as P- Pony instead of Jackass.

    2. You are out of touch, living in a fantasy world.

    3. No one is accepting Socialism. Obama is the third Party believe it or not.

    4. You are part of the problem, you feel it’s your way or no way, no one is asking you to compromise principles or core values.

    5. You can’t have everything your way all the time, it’ s unrealisti

  26. Proud Republican said at 12:33 pm on July 4th, 2012:

    More meaningless, self-serving drivel from politicalpony. This is the best example of what is wrong with the Tea Party. They know it all, everyone else is stupid, and they are the supreme patriots.

  27. You Know - The More I Think About It said at 1:19 pm on July 4th, 2012:

    It’s Political PONY because he hasn’t grown up into an adult yet 🙂

    And Bob, you just showed why you are often cannon fodder. You think so much of yourself that you rank in the elitist class and thus untouchable. But, Happy 4th. I guess that’s what Freedom’s about. The freedom to be a know it all 🙂

  29. Bob English said at 2:29 pm on July 4th, 2012:

    You Know: I have been called a lot of things on this site by people hiding behind fake names but “elitist?”….thats a new one.

    So let me make sure I have this warped logic figured out. When someone else attacks me in a thread I was not even on and I jokenly respond, that makes me an “elitist” ????…….I’ll remember that when I am driving my 2003 “elitist” Rav 4 with 175k miles on it down the NJ Turnpike, lol.

    For the record, I have never personally attacked anyone posting on MMM and would rather stick to debating facts and issues than engaging in personal attacks and childish name calling.

  31. Bob who???? said at 2:45 pm on July 4th, 2012:

  32. 2people showed said at 5:22 pm on July 4th, 2012:

    When has the TP come to a Republican function or fundraiser? Without makinf a self-serving Scene? Never, yet you expect MCRC members to cowtail to your dysfunctional association, when all you do is talk bad about them. Why doesn’t the TP talk down the Democrtas instead? You love the left and loath the Right Moderates more.
    That does not set well with Republicans.
    Get your priorities straight.

  33. Rick Ambrosia said at 6:22 pm on July 4th, 2012:

    TR…he’s Gene Hoyas, or whatever he calls himself…I call him the Fake Colonel since he donned a costume for years calling himself “Colonel Manly Rash” and attended different rallies in full costume regalia. He’s certifiably insane. As you can see from his inane and idiotic posts. You should read some where he advocates the violent overthrow of the elected government. Nuts, I tell you.

  34. TR said at 6:59 pm on July 4th, 2012:

  35. Elitism has many facets Bobn said at 8:50 pm on July 4th, 2012:

    Nothing to do with your econo box car in this sense…

    e·lit·ism or é·lit·ism (-ltzm, -l-)
    1. The belief that certain persons or members of certain classes or groups deserve favored treatment by virtue of their perceived superiority, as in intellect, social status

    YOU come across as a know it all, and seem to feel you are right on everything.

  36. Rick Ambrosia said at 8:56 pm on July 4th, 2012:

    Although TR… I could be wrong. BTW…I don’t think you’re nuts….just wrong.

  37. Bob English said at 12:23 am on July 5th, 2012:

    Elitism: From what I can see, almost everyone on this site firmly believes in what they are posting….as do I. So by your definition, there must be quite a few elitists here.

    If it helps you to sleep better at night, know that I did have a change of heart (or at least changed the way/words I was using to make a point) after reading what someone else posted regarding responsible gun owners.

  38. Lois said at 8:53 am on July 5th, 2012:

    Politcalpony—-not Gene Hoyas; is one of the BTPG inner circle; has been there from the beginning; long on passion, short on coherent thoughts; loooooooong on vulgarity, quick to fire off his verbal AK47—–>writings usually abundantly laced with personal attacks…lots of pretty nasty name-calling….

    My solution: don’t read him—–skip to the others that are offering thoughts/opinions/observations/ preferences/humor worth reading.

  41. SenseCommon said at 9:59 am on July 5th, 2012:

    The funniest thing about this entire article and comments that followed after is that this shows the major disconnect between reality and everyone else’s perception of reality. Arguing and arguing over comments and statements made by someone with the end result of it all is getting us no where.

    of being beaten to death and/or opening any old wounds, factually: over 200 attended the Unity Breakfast, at the Freehold HQ, on the 30th.. many stayed beyond the 2 hrs. advertised, just chatting,laughing, eating, and networking.. there were actually two rounds of speeches, as the notables came in waves-the earlier, led by Lt. Gov. Kim.. the latter, by Sen. Joe K.. it was very crowded, so only heard: “we want to work with the GOP” from Ms. Gonzalez, even those who don’t support her were respectful.. it was FINE, ok?…the only notable person missing, who later said she had a “family commitment,” was Mrs. Hanlon..and, former Chair Joe was working at his dad’s camp,on his birthday.. a table full of her former supporters were quite disappointed at her not showing, but again, everyone was in a good mood, and obviously ready to unite in the fall, and win elections.. understand Rhoda was there for the later speeches, and took some photos, which she usually posts on Facebook.. even with running out of coffee, ice water, and cold diet sodas, and with just a few crumbs left, it honestly was a very positive event.. if the few remaining grumps/naysayers would like to come on board and help out in any way, am sure they’d be welcome, as there’s much to do, with no time to hypothetically worry about any perceived “primaries,” starting NEXT year!.. thanks for the moment..

    I am a follower for Anna Little for Congress and am sorry to hear that Anna is tied up with John Bennett . When some dirty wash comes out on the former 6 day Governor it will only come back to haunt her. Anna is a good lady and doesn’t need all the bad mouthing from anyone. Highlands loved her and she did what was right for the majority of you in the HIGHLANDS.iTS ONLY YOU LOSING democratic voters that are knocking her>and yes the bayshore tea party that dumped her a whi:le back>
