  • Tucker Carlson Rips Ex-MSNBCer Krystal Ball's Absurd Impeachment Arguments

    05/19/2017 11:17:44 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 11 replies ^ | May 18, 2017 | Tom Blumer
    On the left, there is obsessive talk of impeaching Donald Trump. Despite the fact that the press reports which supposedly form the foundation of such talk are almost always based on anonymous sources, and despite the fact that the Trump administration has successfully refuted most if not all of them, the obsession continues. On his Wednesday night show, after successfully swatting away pathetic pro-impeachment arguments made by guest Krystal Ball and her citations of weak-kneed Republicans who can't seem to resist bending with the Beltway wind, Tucker Carlson got fed up. The segment (posted in full here) opened with a...
  • From Cincinnati to Washington: How Lois Lerner's IRS Ruthlessly Targeted the Tea Party

    07/02/2016 11:33:19 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 34 replies ^ | July 2, 2016 | Kim Strassel
    Editor’s Note: Conservatives know they are under assault. What many may not know (because the media hasn’t told them) is that they are the targets of a coordinated, well-honed campaign by the left to push conservatives entirely out of the political debate. The Intimidation Game is the first real telling of what happened at the IRS—how elected Democrats used that agency to muzzle tens of thousands of Tea Party members during two elections. It's the real story of how a liberal Wisconsin prosecutor used secret subpoenas and predawn raids to silence 30 conservative grassroots organizations in that state. It's the...
  • What This Police Chief Did To A Tea Party Leader Is As Childish As It Is Illegal

    The feud between Campbell, Wisconsin, Police Chief Tim Kelemen and local Tea Party Leader Greg Luce began last fall, when Luce started organizing protests against Barack Obama on an interstate overpass. Kelemen objected to the protests, claiming they disrupted traffic. So, he did what any responsible police chief would do: he persuaded the town board to pass an ordinance banning signs on the bridge. Oh, and he also signed Luce up on homosexual dating, pornography and federal healthcare websites. Via Police One: Kelemen told investigators ...........
  • "Lost" Lois Lerner Emails to White House May Be About Obama’s Brother

    Freedom Outpost ^ | 6/14/14 | Walid Shoebat
    Was there any email correspondence between the White House and former IRS Tax Exempt Director Lois Lerner relative to Malik Obama’s Barack H. Obama Foundation (BHOF)? If so, when would it have taken place? Could it have been any time between January 2009 – April of 2011? The reason that should be of interest is that as of yesterday, the White House has suddenly proclaimed that all emails between Lerner and the White House during that time frame have been lost due to a computer crash. To clarify, it is obviously not known if there was any correspondence between Lerner...

    Meanwhile, Tea Party Conservatives are getting beaten up royally by greedy, unelected federal and UN Bureaucrats looking to push a Regionalism plan called Seven/50 (seven counties in 50 years) in an early November vote. The Treasure Coast, seven county region is awash with beautiful scenery, big bucks campaign donations and swing vote mathematics, but is also hooked to the Gore Triangle in the south which has already fallen to the UN Regionalism abomination. “I’ll let some of my pets loose on them,” a gator trapper muttered after testifying against Seven/50 at a recent Martin County Commission meeting. He spoke eloquently...
  • Debate Night: Will Liberal Bob Schieffer Be the Next Candy Crowley?

    10/22/2012 8:18:43 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 49 replies ^ | October 22, 2012 | Rich Noyes
    When CBS’s longtime Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer sits down in Boca Raton, Florida, tonight to moderate the final 2012 presidential debate, he’ll be following three journalists who became targets for criticism over how they handled their moderating duties. Upset liberals scorned PBS’s Jim Lehrer for taking a hands-off approach in the first debate on October 3, with MSNBC analyst Howard Fineman slamming him as “practically useless” for not jumping into the debate on behalf of President Obama. Such criticism may have encouraged the activist approach taken by ABC’s Martha Raddatz in the vice presidential debate October 11, and...

    US News and World Report ^ | 12/10/2011 | Mallie Jane Kim
    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul's media blitz bashing former House Speaker Newt Gingrich as unworthy of Tea Party support isn't hitting its mark, at least not among leaders of the Tea Party Express, Tea Party Patriots, and Tea Party Nation. "I want people to go out there and work for who they believe in," says Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer, who says she or any individual shouldn't dictate who people in the movement ought to vote for. "These people are intelligent. They're not just sheeple that are following somebody," Kremer says, adding that Tea Partyers haven't coalesced behind one candidate...

    I was invited to address a July 4th picnic/tea party rally in Shelby, Mich., where we spend our summers. Shelby is a village whose main street is about 150 yards long and contains a post office, drug store, bank, hardware store, bakery, and that's about it. It's American as it can be. Millionaire fruit farmers sit together with mechanics and chat in a bakery that has the best doughnuts I've ever eaten. Since they all dress in jeans and coveralls, you can't tell them apart. The population of this village hovers around 1,900. And Shelby doesn’t have just a tea...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — Michele Bachmann was campaigning just north of here, the Sarah Palin tour was rumored to be arriving soon, and Mitt Romney was on his way to announce his entry into the presidential race. Yet here was another voter swooning for Herman Cain. “I watched you at the Republican debate, and I have to be honest, I’d never heard of you, but ever since then ... ” said Nathan Lyons, 29, his voice trailing off wistfully. “You say it like it is.”Joan Silvernail, 68, shook Cain’s hand, then turned to her husband. “It’s his enthusiasm,” she said. “Wasn’t...

By Joyce Jones (Black Entertainment Network) Posted: 06/01/2011 12:00 PM EDT GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain released a music video Tuesday that extols the qualities that he and his supporters say are the reason he would make a great president and paints a picture of the Tea Party as inclusive and definitely not racist. The video features both black and white conservative supporters and Cain says he was speaking at Tea Party rallies “before it was cool.” “The Herman Cain Train” tells...

    In the tradition of lampooning everything, Conservative SNL attacked Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann’s response to the President’s State of the Union Address last Saturday night. SNL represented that Congresswoman Bachmann’s core message was not properly conveyed. But it was. Those who were listening to the case that Rep. Bachmann presented got a clear picture of the duplicitous nature of the Barry Hussein Soetoro administration, that is why SNL felt the need for a second attempt to discredit the message.(see 4:11min video)

    Next week here in my county we’ll have a Republican County Convention, and for those of you who can’t make it, I’ll give you a taste of what it is going to be- a battle between the Tea Party and the Establishment. Although many people in the Tea Party think this is some sort of new battle, it is in reality an old battle in the GOP, one that has pitted the libertarian/conservative/teaparty wing of Taft/Coolidge/Goldwater/Reagan/Palin vs the moderate/establishment/progressive wing of Roosevelt/Hoover/Nixon/Bush/McCain. For many years, the teaparty wing cowardly left the field of battle and stayed home while the establishment...

    Washington Post ^ | 11-9-2010 | Marc A. Thiessen
    She wasn't on the ballot last week, but Tuesday was a bad night for Sen. Olympia Snowe. With conservative insurgents taking on GOP incumbents across the country, Snowe is a prime target for a Tea Party challenge in 2012. To fend off such a challenge, Snowe might have pointed to the failed candidacy of Christine O'Donnell in Delaware and warned Tea Party activists that if they want to hand a Republican seat to the Democrats the best way to do it would be to replace her on the ballot. But that argument lost some of its currency when Tea Party...
