  • Progressives continue to marvel at how successful the Tea Party was

    05/28/2021 7:16:04 AM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 15 replies
    How much trouble are we in when progressives broadcast how to beat them and we still won't do it? There's an interesting article in The New Yorker and this paragraph stands tall above all the rest: This insurgent approach has caused establishment figures from both parties to refer to Justice Democrats and its ilk as the Tea Party of the left. Max Berger, an early employee, said, “If that’s supposed to mean that we’re equivalent to white-supremacist dipshits who want to blow up the government or move toward authoritarianism, then I would consider that both an insult and a really...

    The nation finds itself in a new time for choosing, and warrants the rise of a new cultural Tea Party born out of the ashes of the first.Parents began to take over a local school board last weekend with the triumph of two parents who captured seats on a platform to rid classrooms of state-sanctioned racism under the disguise of critical race theory. Cameron “Cam” Bryan, a civil engineer and father of four, and Hannah Smith, an attorney and mother of four, each picked up seats on the Carroll Independent School District school board in Southlake, Texas, between Dallas...

    <p>Moises Avila was alone in the office, staring at the screen of his desktop computer. A Spanish-language game show blared from the TV. February usually is a bonanza month for the America Travel Agency, the business Avila runs at the corner of Whittier and LaVerne in East Los Angeles. Holy Week is in April, and most of Avila’s customers have family ties in Mexico, where the seven days between Palm Sunday and Easter are set aside like a spring break — the busiest travel time of the year.</p>
  • John Boehner: in 2010 a Republican could be a 'total moron' and still be elected in the midterms

    In the excerpt, Boehner didn't hold back when assessing his new colleagues, saying that when he tried to offer the freshmen lawmakers guidance about being in Congress, his advice "went straight through the ears of most of them, especially the ones who didn't have brains that got in the way." Boehner also assigned some blame to conservative media outlets, especially Fox News, in incentivizing flashiness and outrage over substance, which he said made it harder for him to govern his caucus effectively. By 2013, Boehner wrote, "the chaos caucus in the House had built up their own power base thanks...

    The Tennessee State Senate unanimously passed the Lifetime Order of Protection Bill this week. The final vote will take place on Monday, March 15th on the House Floor. This bill is to help prevent victims of violent crimes from being re-victimized. My situation is only one example of why this legislation is needed here in TN. Unfortunately, there are other victims of horrific crimes in our state who need help also. On April 2, 2009, my life was turned upside down. Completely Shattered. My husband Ben was murdered in front of me by a man who was stalking me. This...

    Were you among the more than a billion-plus people who watched the 2014 Super Bowl? If so, like multi-millions of viewers, you might have been disappointed afterward to learn of the cheating that occurred. The Seattle Seahawks swamped the Denver Broncos, seemingly, on play after play, as if they knew exactly what the Broncos were going to do with each snap of the football.As it turned out, the Seahawks did know what the Broncos were going to do. As was revealed on talk shows a few days later by some of the Seahawks players themselves, they had stolen the signs...
  • New Evidence Implicates FBI Higher-Ups in Dishonesty of Anti-Trump Lawyer

    For the past year, defenders of the FBI have consistently downplayed the significance of an FBI staff lawyer falsifying evidence in the government’s investigation into Donald Trump’s relationship with Russia. They argue Kevin Clinesmith’s crime of altering a CIA document to obscure the fact that former Trump campaign aide Carter Page worked for U.S., not Russian, intelligence was a rare lapse in judgment by an overworked bureaucrat. It was not, his apologists say, part of any broader conspiracy to conceal exculpatory information from surveillance court judges, who never learned of Page’s history with the CIA before approving FBI warrants to...

    On Nov. 4, 2020, I suddenly saw with my own eyes the depth and breadth of the political corruption myself and others had tried and failed to prevent for so many years. I am angry. It’s not a passing emotion brought on by a single circumstance. This anger is a deep, painful, abiding anger created by a mix of frustration, despair, hopelessness, and injustice. For decades I have been told to trust American institutions and if I have grievances to work harder to improve them. I have done so, far more than most Americans, and my reward has been watching...

    Palin responded to comments in Obama's A Promised Land during a Friday evening interview with Newsmax. Both she and host Greg Kelly ridiculed Obama as "aloof and snobby as he's ever been" after he tied her to what he described as xenophobic and paranoid thinking that now dominates the Republican Party... ...Palin said Obama's depiction of her in his new book overlooks that she and the Tea Party movement at the time promoted diversity within the GOP, particularly the "Mama Grizzlies" embrace of conservative women. "It's the antithesis of what the left is acting out today. They're choosing people based...

    WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) - While election season slowly comes to a close, there’s still one race in Texas we won’t know results for until late December. Shelley Luther is up against current House District 68 Representative Drew Springer for Texas Senate in District 30. Luther gained national attention when she was jailed after opening her Dallas salon amid COVID-19 restrictions. She visited Wichita Falls on Nov. 5, addressing voters at a Tea Party meeting. The former teacher wants Wichita County residents to know she’s not a politician. “What I say I mean, and when I look people in the eye,...

    Conservative advocacy groups Tea Party Patriots Action and FreedomWorks are dispatching their activists in key battleground states to “protect the vote.” Tea Party Patriots Action is marshaling its supporters to rallies in Phoenix, Arizona; Atlanta, Georgia; Detroit, Michigan; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Tea Party Patriots’ Jenny Beth Martin said her group’s supporters are going to voice support for “transparent and honest ballot counting.” “In order for Americans to trust the election process, we must ensure that there are clearly defined laws surrounding our elections, and that those laws will be faithfully and consistently enforced,” Ms. Martin said in a statement. “We...

    MSNBC host Chris Hayes. Is there a more condescending, sniveling little pinhead in all of cable news? In all of television?  If there is, I have yet to see him or her. There, now I feel better. Let’s continue. During a condescending diatribe on Friday — Hayes enjoys launching into condescending diatribes, given how much he loves to hear himself talk — he not only defended the mobs surrounding the White House, several of whom screamed obscenities at Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and other Republicans as they left the final night of the Republican National Convention, he claimed he has also...

    American ^ | August 17, 2020 | Mark J. Fitzgibbons
    Former Congressman Steve Stockman, whom leftwing Salon called a “Tea Party darling,” has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear his appeal from a 10-year criminal sentence on multiple counts involving raising money from just two GOP donors. You may have heard the term “criminalization of politics.” Steve Stockman’s 2018 conviction is very literally an example. Stockman’s asking the Supreme Court to overturn that politicized conviction should be watched by conservatives who know that a Biden/Harris administration would be a reboot of the lawless and lawbreaking Obama Deep State, but probably even more vindictive towards conservatives. Representative Steve Stockman 2014...

    a US District Court ruled in favor of Americans for Prosperity Foundation’s lawsuit against California Attorney General Kamala Harris, ruling that her demands for the Foundation to hand over its list of members and supporters is unconstitutional.” [AFP] We’ve repeatedly covered Harris’s unprecedented drive to demand disclosure of donor lists by nonprofits that carry on activities in California, a step likely to lead to private and public retaliation against individuals and groups revealed to have donated to unpopular or controversial causes. As the WSJ notes in an editorial, U.S. District Judge Manuel Real “declared her disclosure requirement an unconstitutional burden...
  • Big-City Rioting Is No Tea Party Protest

    Few subjects more easily betray aggressive media bias than protests. If you're a conservative protester, you're most likely to be ignored. The networks mostly ignored this year's prayerful March for Life in January, even though President Donald Trump came in person, a historic first. ABC anchor David Muir offered 15 seconds, saying: "The president taking the stage at the anti-abortion rights rally. His administration today threatening to withhold federal funds from California for requiring private insurers to cover abortions. California's governor dismissing the threat." If conservative protesters are not ignored, they're most likely to be portrayed as a menace to...

    Vice President Joe Biden joined House Democrats in lashing tea party Republicans Monday, accusing them of having “acted like terrorists” in the fight over raising the nation’s debt limit, according to several sources in the room. Biden was agreeing with a line of argument made by Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) at a two-hour, closed-door Democratic Caucus meeting. “We have negotiated with terrorists,” an angry Doyle said, according to sources in the room. “This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.” Biden, driven by his Democratic allies’ misgivings about the debt-limit deal, responded: “They have acted...

    A video editor who shaped the buzzy Lincoln Project ads needling President Trump is no longer affiliated with the Republican organization over a series of past tweets in which he used offensive slang for female anatomy to insult political rivals. Ben Howe, who came of age politically making anti-Obama ads during the rise of the tea party, did not publicly tout his work for the super PAC formed by a group of high-level Republican operatives who have broken ranks with the party over Trump’s presidency until a recent interview with Vanity Fair. He was described in the article as “the...
