    If the U.S. electorate were ever to grasp the full scope of what took place in the IRS, FBI and DOJ weaponization of government to specifically target people, no-one in Washington DC would ever be safe from the backlash. There’s enough material inside the IRS story for multiple Pulitzer prizes, in addition to severe and jaw-dropping revelations as to republican politicians who aided the overall scheme.  Start by finding out who in the IRS specifically sent 21 CD-ROM’s to the FBI, and find out who specifically received them inside the FBI, and what they did with them.

    KrisAnne Hall, strict-constructionist constitutional lawyer, educator, Tea Party activist, and author, was this month's guest on C-Span2's "In-Depth" this afternoon. The program, three hours long, will be repeated tonight at midnight EDT. She responds to questions and comments from the program moderator and from viewers on her life and works. The titles of several of her books - Bedtime Stories for Budding Patriots and Not a Living Breathing Document: Reclaiming the Constitution tells much about her philosophy and teaching. Equally interesting is the story of her life, going from her childhood in a Democrat household where "the only thing more...

    Snip There’s no such narrative around Eric Cantor, the former Republican House majority leader from Richmond who was spectacularly ousted in his 2014 primary by a no-name economics professor. Let’s back up a moment. Remember the summer of 2013, when the “Defund Obamacare Tour” drove the news cycle all through Congress’s August recess? The town halls organized by the political arm of the Heritage Foundation enlivened the base and furthered what had been the GOP’s core message since 2010—that Obamacare was bad and, if Americans helped Republicans hold both chambers, it could be repealed. Cantor helped create that perception. Earlier...
  • Albuquerque Tea Party Given Tax-Exempt Status After 8 Years

    The Albuquerque Tea Party has been granted tax-exempt status by the Internal Revenue Service after applying eight years ago. The Albuquerque Journal reports Graham Bartlett, president of the local Tea Party, says he was informed about a month ago that the group's request was going through. Bartlett says the Albuquerque Tea Party requested tax-exempt status because it relies on donations and people tend to donate more when they know they can write it off on their taxes.

    President Donald Trump may not be in the White House had former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin not blazed the trail for him. This week, Bernie Quigley observed that Palin “was prelude and harbinger” to Trump’s arrival. He wrote in The Hill that he was reading William Strauss and Neil Howe’s The Fourth Turning when Palin appeared on the national stage. And he said then that “it was possible to see the rise of new political archetypes and forms and they are now upon us.” “It was not President Donald Trump that brought the age, although he turned the key....

    Tim Graham, executive editor of NewsBusters, spoke with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Thursday regarding the media’s reaction to the shooting at a Republican baseball practice that critically injured Rep. Steve Scalise. He also talked about the backlash of Megyn Kelly’s interview with Alex Jones. Graham commented on MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell’s reporting on the shooting by saying, “In 2011, when Congresswoman Gabriel Giffords was shot, they jumped on the idea that this was the Tea Party. In Denver, they jumped on the notion that the shooter was the Tea Party. In both cases, they didn’t have...
  • James T. Hodgkinson, Shooting Suspect, Belonged to ‘Terminate the Republican Party’ Facebook Group

    The News-Democrat also cites a Facebook profile it says belonged to Hodgkinson, which featured a post from Monday: “I Want to Say Mr. President, for being an ass hole you are Truly the Biggest Ass Hole We Have Ever Had in the Oval Office.” Other Facebook posts support Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Hodgkinson campaigned for Sanders in Iowa. The Facebook profile is linked to a number of left-wing, anti-Republican groups, including “Terminate The Republican Party,” among others: I do not like Trump, Cruz, the TeaParty! or “Hate-Radio” Damn! Damn! Damn! Expose Republican Fraud Boycott The Republican Party Liberal...

    Few in the odd coalition of Left and Right pushing for reauthorization of the 81-year-old Export-Import Bank have been louder than Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. “It’s wrong that candidates for president, who really should know better, are jumping on this bandwagon,” she said at a May 22 campaign stop in New Hampshire. “It’s wrong, it’s embarrassing. . . . The idea that we would remove this relatively small but vital source of funding for our businesses to compete is absolutely backwards.” Clinton’s defense of Ex-Im may be motivated by more than mere concern for American businesses. Critics have argued...

Here’s the key part of that transcript: HH: The idea that this might be a Geithner-Axelrod plan, and by that, the sort of intimation, Henry II style, will no one rid me of this turbulent priest, will no one rid me of these turbulent Tea Parties, that might have just been a hint, a shift of an eyebrow, a change in the tone of voice. That’s going to take a long time to get to. I...

    The historic meeting house where colonists gathered to begin challenging British rule in the years leading to the American Revolution and launched the Boston Tea Party has been damaged and closed to the public. Officials say the Old South Meeting House sustained accidental damage from nearby construction. The meeting house is one of the country’s most important colonial-era sites. It may be best known as the location where the Boston Tea Party began in 1773 when colonists dumped tea into Boston Harbor in defiance of the Tea Act, seen by many as a form of taxation without representation. …

    National Public Radio ^ | April 29, 2017 | Don Gonyea
    Talk to voters across the country about President Trump's first 100 days in office and a few things become abundantly clear: His supporters — those who turned out in force and voted for him — still overwhelmingly love him. His detractors — and they are many, given that Trump failed to win the popular vote — are still shocked by his election and appalled by his behavior. He has lost support, particularly among moderates and independent voters. That's a big reason that polls give him the lowest approval rating of any modern president this soon after taking office. And, at...

    Didn’t Barack Obama brag about this three months ago, calling himself “the father of the Tea Party“? Not exactly, as DNC deputy chair Keith Ellison explains in this exchange on a panel at the University of Minnesota. Ellison argues that Obama failed to rebuild the party’s ground apparatus after his two presidential elections, and that this failure has put his “wonderful achievements” at risk. The truth, however, lies somewhere in between:(VIDEO-AT-LINK) “Look I’m a great fan of President Obama. I totally voted for many of the things he supported — Dodd Frank, Affordable Care Act, Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act...

    Frontier justice was a staple of the Westerns. In High Noon, the judge tells the marshal, Gary Cooper, he’d best get out of town before the villain returns, then flees himself. Director Howard Hawks hated that film so much that he made two pictures as a response, with Rio Bravo and El Dorado both starring John Wayne as a sheriff guarding a bad guy until he can be taken away for trial. With Rio Lobo, we still get Wayne holed up in a jail surrounded by a gang trying to bust out the boss, but in this one, Hawks gave...
