Q&A with National Grassroots Coordinator Keli Carender

Today marks the sixth anniversary of the first wave of protests that grew into the Tea Party movement. We asked National Grassroots Coordinator Keli Carender to reflect on her involvement, and the strength of the movement today. Keli, you don’t necessarily fit the stereotypical conservative activist. Maybe your living in Seattle has something to do with that. Let’s start with how you got involved; did you have any background in political outreach? A few months before the first protest in 2009, I joined the Young Republicans in Seattle in order to meet some other young conservatives, but other than that I hadn't really ever been involved in ...

5 Times the Obama Administration found itself on the wrong side of the law

The Obama Administration does not have a stellar track record when it comes to getting affirmation for its radical agenda in the U.S. court system. Unfortunately, when the President of the United States isn’t blatantly ignoring the law, he’s looking for ways to at least sidestep or tweak it. Thankfully, he’s been pretty unsuccessful once challenged in court. 1. National Labor Relations Board v. Noel Canning. When the president tried to do some improper recess appointments. Yeah, that didn’t work out so well. 2. Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. When the president tried to tell private companies they had to violate their religious ...

Democrats’ Obstructionism

This week, Senate Democrats more than dipped their toes in the obstructionism pool, they jumped completely in! For three days in a row, the Democratic caucus united behind blocking a bill [1] that passed the House of Representatives and would fund the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Their only problem with the bill is that it reverses President Obama’s unconstitutional executive order instituting de facto amnesty. The Department’s funding runs out at the end of this month. Meanwhile, of course, the Obama Administration is laying the groundwork to cast the blame of a potential DHS shutdown squarely at the GOP’s feet. On Monday, in ...

Senate Dems would rather uphold amnesty than fund DHS – CALL NOW!

On Tuesday, Senate Democrats blocked legislation [1] that would have funded the Department of Homeland Security, but reversed President Obama’s executive action on immigration. That’s right: even though DHS funding is set to run out at the end of February, Democrats in the hallowed halls of the Senate think it’s a better idea to preserve amnesty, then fund a government agency. We need to make our voice heard loud and clear. Last November, voters rejected the Obama agenda, including amnesty. Now, it’s time to call BOTH your senators and remind them what last year’s election was all about. Call at 202-224-3121 and tell them to vote to ...

Secure Our Border – Toolkit

  While the House border bill is on hold, call your Senators. It is urgent that they pass HR 240, which defunds executive amnesty. Let them know they should cancel their recess until they do their jobs. Details below.   Download Toolkit   On Friday, Jan. 9 — just before a holiday weekend — House Homeland Security Chairman Mike McCaul (R-TX) introduced H.R. 399, with the misleading title Secure Our Border First Act. The Committee attempted to fast-track the bill, but the House Leadership pulled it from the floor until further notice. Our task is to make sure this bill can be amended to make it a true border-security ...

President Ignores Midterm Election Mandate

Statement by Jenny Beth Martin of Tea Party Patriots Atlanta, Ga. –Following President Obama's 2015 State of the Union address, Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, issued the following statement: "The President obviously watched a different set of mid-term elections than the rest of the country did. He said that every single one of his policies was on the ballot; the American people rejected them – and him – overwhelmingly. "It’s amazing that after such a repudiation of his policies and programs, his first instinct is to pick a fight. Three hundred billion dollars in new taxes? He knows there’s no chance of such a ...

The IRS and Obamacare: a match made in heaven?

Obamacare is going to make tax season significantly more complicated this spring. For most of us, that doesn’t come as a shock given the amount of authority the Affordable Care Act cedes to the Internal Revenue Service to enforce the new health care law. For starters, [1] this year Americans will have to divulge to the IRS, whether or not they have health insurance. If they do, great! If not, get ready for more forms and a hefty fine. Then there’s the tax credits and subsidies qualifications that Obamacare enrollees will have to decipher, though getting those wrong could incur even more penalties down the road. So what’s a confused ...
