  • Former Sen. Jim DeMint Endorses Judge Roy Moore in Alabama Senate Race

    Former Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) announced on Thursday his endorsement of Judge Roy Moore in next week’s Alabama U.S. senate race, in another blow to the establishment-backed candidate Luther Strange’s campaign. In a press release, DeMint, who is a leading figure in the Tea Party movement, took aim at the “Kings of the Washington Swamp” opposing Moore’s candidacy. “The American people are tired of the lack of leadership on Capitol Hill. They want people who are willing to fight to save our country,” DeMint said. “Judge Moore has proven he has the courage and the commitment to stand up to...
  • Can’t fix our nation by shaking its constitutional tree

    06/17/2017 8:27:34 AM PDT · by EveningStar · 54 replies
    Often people can only take so much pressure before they seek to release it in rash and sudden ways, throwing caution and a careful consideration of consequences to the wind. There were good signs when President Trump was elected that many Americans were entering into that kind of moment. And now, with millions realizing just how widespread and deeply rooted are the problems cool-and-collected President Obama had helped us emotionally paper over, the urge to find release in rash words and deeds is kicking into overdrive. There’s talk of a “cold civil war,” a bitter longing for “national divorce,” and...

    The Politistick ^ | 06/12/2017 | Matthew K. Burke
    The fast-growing, grassroots Convention of States movement has been joined by former senator and head of the Heritage Foundation, Jim DeMint, a constitutional conservative who has been one of the leading champions of limited government and individual liberty in America the past two decades. “The Tea Party needs a new mission,” DeMint told USA TODAY on Monday. “They realize that all the work they did in 2010 has not resulted in all the things they hoped for. Many of them are turning to Article V.” Article V of the U.S. Constitution, often referred to as a “safety valve” provided by...

    #IStandWithJimDeMint I am told that there is a coup underway by the GOP coupled with the Bannon/Brietbart alliance to take control of the Heritage Foundation. Is it the Mercer family that is behind this? The GOP didn’t like the conservative principles that Jim DeMint stood for. They claim that Jim focused on the action side and the white paper side suffered. We don’t need any more “think tanks.” The constitutional advocates need more DO Tanks!!!!! The word is that Bannon will replace DeMint at Heritage. All of that money and power in the hands of Steve Bannon is enough to...

    The Hill ^ | 05/02/2017 | BY PAULINA FIROZI
    Top staffers loyal to ousted Heritage Foundation president Jim DeMint have stepped down from organization, according to a new report. The Daily Beast reported Tuesday evening that top staffers -- including Executive Vice President Bret Bernhardt, Vice President of Communications Wesley Denton, Vice President of Policy Promotion Ed Corrigan and DeMint’s chief of staff, Camera Seward, have resigned. The Heritage Foundation announced DeMint’s resignation earlier Tuesday, blaming the former leader for "significant and worsening management issues that led to a breakdown of internal communications and cooperation.” DeMint, a former South Carolina senator, took the helm of Heritage in 2013.

    The power struggle at the Heritage Foundation could upend Republican politics and put millions of dollars at DC's most influential think tank on the line. By Mollie Hemingway There are two narratives being spun about the current turmoil at the Heritage Foundation. Last week, Politico reported that the non-profit conservative foundation’s board planned to permanently oust former Sen. Jim DeMint, who was appointed president of the organization in 2013.The narrative Politico offers, supported by quotes from a single anonymous board member, is that Heritage is in disarray as a result of DeMint’s decisions since taking over several years ago. DeMint...

    Jim DeMint is being forced out as the leader of the conservative Heritage Foundation think tank amid internal tensions at the organization over its direction, several sources have confirmed to Fox News. The former South Carolina Republican senator's imminent departure was first reported late last week and has since sparked widespread speculation about what led to the separation.

    Will blistering populist Steve Bannon replace fiery conservative Sen. Jim DeMint as the next president of the Heritage Foundation? Heritage Action CEO Michael Needham won't say. Asked by Chris Wallace whether Heritage would be Bannon's "safety net as he's forced out of the White House," Needham demurred on "Fox News Sunday." "I can tell you," Needham replied, "there's a lot of speculation in the room and in the media that never misses a chance to divide and attack conservatives." With that non-answer, speculation over the fate of Heritage Foundation will no doubt reach a new fever pitch. News of DeMint's...

    Politico is reporting that several sources on the board of the Heritage Foundation are saying there is an organized effort to dump the organization's president, Jim DeMint.  DeMint, who has a close relationship with the Trump White House, is accused of being "too political" and corrupting the foundation's historic mission of research and policy formulation. There's also a sense that he's made the institution too much about himself. "He has been a congressman and senator. They are solo performers. When you are in the Senate, life is all about the senators," said one board member, who asked for anonymity to...

    South Carolina's Jim DeMint could soon be out of a job that helped elect a president, according to a report published Friday in Politico. The former South Carolina senator and Tea Party leader cut his term short in 2012 to become president of The Heritage Foundation. The Heritage Foundation is a conservative D.C. think tank that got in on the ground floor of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. It has been attributed to significantly helping Trump win the 2016 presidential election....

    In an exclusive interview with The Brody File, Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint says after meeting with President Trump in the Oval Office, he believes the president seems very serious when it comes to listening to concerns from conservatives over the new GOP healthcare bill. “He seemed a lot more receptive than the word we had gotten from the House that this was the bill, take it or leave it,” DeMint tells us. DeMint spoke with me Thursday afternoon in DC.

Neither Cruz nor Rubio would be in the Senate but for Jim DeMint’s Senate Conservatives Fund supporting them.Senator DeMint told me he knows Ted Cruz, knows he is honest, and knows that the attacks are coming because Cruz fights Washington. Washington politicians, in turn, have decided they have to take out Ted Cruz.You...

    WASHINGTON — Americans following this year's presidential campaign would never know it from mainstream media coverage, but the commander in chief we hired four years ago has set the United States on a course for unilateral disarmament. The following people hope you won't notice until after Nov. 6: Vladimir Putin, Liang Guanglie, Kim Jong-un, Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, Sayyed Ali Hosseini Khamenei, Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, A.Q. Khan and of course, Barack Obama. The 10 individuals above share a common fascination: nuclear weapons. Vladimir Putin, Russia's modern czar; Liang Guanglie, minister of national defense for...

    The Daily Signal ^ | 1 Jun 15 | Demint & Anderson
    Conservatives are reeling after two outrageous decisions last week by the Supreme Court. In one case they reinterpreted Obamacare so that “established by the state” magically meant “or the federal government.” In another, they redefined marriage—even though nothing in our Constitution gives the court the authority to do that. What do we do now? The Obamacare case is the simpler of the two when it comes to next steps. While the court refused to enforce the plain meaning of the text, Congress can still vote to repeal Obamacare and replace it with patient-focused, market-based healthcare reforms that will truly serve...

    Roll Call ^ | Niels Lesniewski
    Back in 1999, Roll Call interviewed white supremacist leader David Duke about the possibility he would seek the House seat vacated by the resignation of Republican Rep. Bob Livingston. As part of that report, reporter John Mercurio also talked to up-and-coming Louisiana politicians, current Sen. David Vitter and current House Majority Whip Steve Scalise. “I honestly think his 15 minutes of fame have come and gone,” said state Rep. David Vitter (R), a wealthy Metairie attorney who holds Duke’s old seat in the state House and is “seriously considering” a Congressional bid. “When he’s competed in a field with real...

    The Federalist ^ | December 29, 2014 | David Corbin and Matt Parks
    Congratulations to Texas Senator Ted Cruz for winning the Federalist Today Presidential Straw Poll with 26% of the nearly one thousand votes cast. Placing a respectable second and third, Senator Rand Paul (22%) and Governor Scott Walker (16%) showed that they also have considerable support among the “lovers of freedom and anxious for the fray” Federalist faithful. The political insider would, undoubtedly, not be impressed. Good luck getting Senators Cruz or Paul elected President of the United States. Any such insurgent’s campaign will be undone by a press that favors Democrats, a bare-knuckles Republican establishment that favors milque-toast candidates, and...

    Most Americans don’t watch C-SPAN and I cannot blame them. More often than not, it seems as though the Senate is in a quorum call or a lone senator is debating something totally irrelevant to the issues that are important to most Americans. That changed a little bit on Saturday when Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Utah Sen. Mike Lee forced the Senate to debate President Obama’s executive amnesty. I’ll save you the boring back-and-forth that occurred in our nation’s capital over the procedural stuff and cut right to the chase: Ted and Mike were attempting to carry out the...
