Michelle Malkin Girds for 2014 GOP Civil War

Photo Credit: APMichelle Malkin doesn’t run away from fights, she runs toward them. And she’s running faster than ever headlong into the 2014 Republican primary battles on behalf of upstart conservative candidates who are mounting insurgent challenges to the GOP old guard.

Twitter is Malkin’s weapon of choice. Battles with her almost always devolve into wars, and those who follow the conservative social media scene know she has a proven formula online: Taunting quips from foes bring out the full force of her Twitter arsenal, with snappy replies, catchy hashtags and the mobilization of a legion of energized followers.

They are pulling down the curtain that has hidden how the elite of both Democrats and the GOP have worked together to increase the size and power of the central government at the expense of state and individual rights.

    RINO’s (Democrats wearing a Republican Label) are card carrying members of the Washington elite. It has become ever clearer that the establishment of both parties have sold their votes to campaign donors and special interests. We can get their attention by a
    primary challenge during the next election cycle and every one after that.

    Make them feel like they are whistling past the graveyard hoping the ghosts of our Founding Fathers are not giving aid and comfort to the true Conservatives that will challenge the GOP in a hostile
