Impeach John Koskinen: Call and Tweet


Tea Party Patriots Calls on the House to Impeach Koskinen Before Going on Vacation

Washington, DC – Tea Party Patriots CEO and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today reacting to news of a deal on Capitol Hill that would delay a vote on impeaching IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.  “It has been six years since the targeting started. We who were targeted never received due process during the targeting. To date, there still has not been any accountability for the actions taken against 426 groups across the country representing millions of Americans, not to mention the countless people who were individually targeted.  (NOTE: remember, Congress learned from investigations that tea party donors were ten ...

IRS persists in targeting Americans for their political beliefs


National debt to soar to 77 percent of U.S. gross domestic product by end of fiscal year

Spendthrifts in Washington, D.C. by the end of September will have sent our national debt soaring by three percentage points to 77 percent of gross domestic product, the greatest ratio of debt-to-GDP we’ve seen since 1950 when we were still paying down debt from World War II. The Washington Examiner has the scoop: The agency projected that the debt held by the public will rise 3 percentage points to 77 percent of U.S. gross domestic product by the end of fiscal year 2016 in September. Debt has not hit that ratio since 1950, when the government was still in the middle of paying down the debt it incurred paying for World War II. Over the ...

Federal appeals court says IRS likely still targeting Americans for their political beliefs

Officials at the Internal Revenue Service are continuing to target politically conservative-leaning groups seeking tax-exempt status, a federal appeals court said in a recent ruling that overturned a lower-court decision that tossed out a lawsuit against the agency on the grounds IRS authorities said they’d stop certain targeting practices. The Daily Signal has the story: The IRS insisted “there is no reasonable expectation” that discrimination will reoccur, the ruling noted, because the tax agency has “suspended until further notice” tactics it used to target the applications of tea party and other conservative groups for nonprofit ...

Calif. Rep. McClintock: U.S. national debt is ‘out of control’

U.S. Rep. Tom McClintock during a recent speaking engagement in El Dorado Hills, California underscored how severely in the hole our nation is from a financial perspective – something we’ve known for years but need Congress to act on right away. The Folsom Telegraph has the details: “Spending is out of control,” he said. The National Debt is at $20 trillion and growing, he said. In 10 years there won’t be funding for Medicare and Social Security will be bankrupt in 17 years if “we stay on the same trajectory,” McClintock said… McClintock said that “entitlement programs” cost $1 trillion a year. Examples of entitlement ...

Rep. Brat: ICE tells me ‘No. 1 problem’ facing federal immigration authorities is local authorities ignoring detainers

Rep. Dave Brat (R-Va.) is optimistic about legislation he has coming down the pike that would increase immigration controls and choke funding for terrorist organizations in an effort to enhance national security under an administration that has been lax in that area. The Washington Examiner has the details: Federal detention policy enforcement has been loosened under the Obama administration, and local law enforcement agencies sometimes refuse to comply when requests are submitted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. "I had met with the head of ICE, and I asked [about] the number one problem … He said it was the problem of these detainers," ...

Rep. Gohmert to gun-control nuts: ‘Radical Islam killed these people!’

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) Wednesday challenged liberal members of Congress – staked out in the House Chamber for a so-called gun-control “sit in” – who demanded representatives in the wake of the Orlando terror attack vote on gun-control legislation that would tighten background checks for gun buyers – a measure, says Gohmert, that’s beside the point. “We are talking about radical Islam. Radical Islam killed these people!” Rep. Gohmert is heard saying to his liberal colleagues in Periscope footage filmed during the 16-hour demonstration. The legislation House liberals wanted a vote on would block those on the “no-fly” and ...
