TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Tea Party Group Teams With ACLU, NAACP On Patriot Act “Growing concerns about the Patriot Act’s renewal are creating strange bedfellows. The Tea Party Patriots and the ACLU are running TV ads urging Americans to “tell Congress [to] protect our privacy.” On top of that, the executive director of Iowa’s ACLU and Tea Party Patriots’ boss Jenny Beth Martin have coauthored an op-ed in the Des Moines Register on “the need for significant reforms to curtail government surveillance authorities, like some of those included in the Patriot Act.” And even the NAACP — which hasn’t always been kind to the tea party movement ...

High national debt and tepid economies: together like PB&J

In the last few years, a 2009 book and 2010 paper by Carmen Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff have driven the intellectual discussion over cutting spending and debt in order to grow the American economy. As of late, however, the paper – which concluded that national debt levels over 90% of GDP slow growth dramatically – has come under fire from a doctoral student and two others at UMass-Amherst. Many partisans have since taken advantage of the work of these three men – Thomas Herndon, Michael Ash, and Robert Pollin (HAP) – to make various attacks on Reinhart-Rogoff’s (RR) work and character. Those partisans (as well as Herndon, Ash, and Pollin) ...

Iran gains power in Latin America as Obama administration looks on; a brave leader speaks

While attention has been focused on the murder of our ambassador to Libya and violent anti American demonstrations against our embassies overseas.....Those same anti-American tentacles have been quietly grabbing hold in our own back yard. With little notice in the main stream media, Iran has been cementing it’s relationships with regimes in Venezuela & Bolivia, both countries under the control of strongmen friendly to communism.  Iran is the main funder of terrorism throughout the world, For them to gain a foothold in Latin America, does not bode well for peace in our hemisphere. Recently I spoke with Bolivian Senator Ms.  Carmen ...

This means the nation has added $1 trillion to the national debt in less than 10 months, a rate that is expected to slow only gradually over the next twelve months. Despite what Democrats say, this level of debt has a significant impact on the national economy. As Kenneth Rogoff explained in June (emphasis added): In a series of academic papers with Carmen Reinhart – including, most recently, joint work with Vincent Reinhart ("Debt Overhangs: Past and Present") – we find that very high debt levels of 90% of GDP are a long-term secular drag on economic growth that ...

Thank You to All Who Contributed to Saving Wisconsin

Your support clearly had a major impact in what happened last night and we are extremely grateful. Thank you! Next, we want to thank the great patriots in Wisconsin for standing to ...
