TOPLINE: Stuff You Need to Know for Thursday, August 21, 2014

Guatemala's Human Smuggling Network is Big Business For 'Coyotes' Guatemala’s shadowy human smuggling network is run by a highly sophisticated organization that more closely resembles a corporation with a profit-sharing program than a ragtag band of criminals. "Coyotes" — the term often used to describe human smugglers — own first-class Guatemalan hotels, run a sales force with members called “hooks,” and like other businesses, adjust prices up or down depending on competition. They even can provide VIP bus service to the U.S. border. Coyotes credit President Obama for giving them a new “business model” that allows them to transport ...

Why We Fight: A Symposium

Today, Tea Party activists across the nation mourn the deceased and wounded in yesterday’s bombings at the Boston Marathon. However, we cannot allow this loss to paralyze us against the political threats we face. As such, many activists are continuing today’s planned #DCIntervention against those who subvert our Constitution and our natural rights – without transparency and public input. With the launch of these protests, Tea Party Patriots across the country are continuing the proud American tradition of standing up against a corrupt, overreaching national government. In times as tough as these, it’s sometimes hard to be optimistic. With ...

OH, IN, IA, WI, FL, VA, NM Activists Scrutinize Performances of Candidates  Today, local coordinators, state coordinators and other Tea Party Patriots (TPP) activists across the country, including in swing states, reacted to last night’s presidential debate.  TPP is the nation’s largest tea party organization with more than 3,500 locally affiliated groups. “Those of us who have been paying close attention to this campaign know that the President has spoken vaguely and sparsely of his policies and goals, while focusing most of his attention on attack rhetoric and empty promises aimed at swaying the less-informed.  We, the informed, are ...

Tea Party Patriots react to the VP Debate

After watching last night’s Vice Presidential debate, Tea Party Patriots National Coordinator Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: Tonight’s debate is a perfect example of the crisis we face. Our vice-president has shown he is an abusive political bully who belittles, mocks, ridicules and laughs at his opponent, the moderator, the viewers and anyone who questions this administration’s lack of leadership. Solutions require respect. These skills the vice president, and this administration, clearly lack. It is time for leadership to take our country’s problems seriously and show us how America can be successful again with a ...

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 ...

Tea party is nothing like ‘Occupy’ movement

The Occupy Wall Street movement has been endorsed by our president, some members of Congress and by others as a movement that is good for America – one that shadows the tea party movement that began in 2009. This movement just celebrated its two-month anniversary and is receiving unprecedented media coverage. Unlike the tea party movement, however, this group of people is involved in violence, lawbreaking and many other despicable actions. If you listen to the media, the two groups seem to be voicing similar positions. In reality, however, they are worlds apart. The tea party movement spontaneously formed from the reaction of the American ...
