WATCH: Rep. Jim Jordan calls for impeachment of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and other members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus are demanding Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) act to impeach President Obama’s IRS Commissioner John Koskinen for “obstructing a congressional investigation into the agency’s conduct.” The Daily Signal has the details: As most of Congress heads out of town for the weekend, a handful of members filed onto the House floor Thursday evening and renewed an effort to impeach the nation’s top taxman.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) & Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) Tax Day Tele Townhall With Tea Party Patriots – April 15, 2015

(Photo Credits: Public Domain, Wikipedia (1 and 2) On April 15, Tea Party Patriots was honored to have two tax-fighting conservatives on our Tax Day Tele Townhall: Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH). Except for President Obama, no one looks forward to Tax Day. Shamefully, the tax code has grown into a 70,000+ page monster, the IRS has been used as a weapon against Americans for their political and religious beliefs, and politicians use it to hide favoritism for special interest groups in the form of tax credits. On our tele townhall, both Senator Lee and Rep. Jordan described in detail why we must simplify our tax ...

Barack Obama: Worse than Jimmy Carter

The people have spoken! A new Quinnipiac University poll [1] released Wednesday shows a plurality of Americans (33 percent) believe Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II. Oh how the mighty have fallen? Former President George W. Bush came in second with 28 percent believe he’s the worst president, while Richard Nixon came in a distant third at 13 percent. The Quinnipiac poll, it should be pointed out, just reaffirms recent downward trends [2] in President Obama’s approval rating. While we certainly agree with the poll’s outcome, we’re not surprised the rest of America is catching on. Right now, the White House is ...

Daily Caller’s Jim Antle diagnoses the problem with listening to Rove Republicans

Last week, former Bush advisor Karl Rove and other establishment Republicans decided to found a new organization to help Republicans win races in 2014 and beyond. Apparently ignoring their poor rate of success in 2012 (though, admittedly, candidates like former Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) did themselves in), these money-rich and principle-poor Republicans are focusing on preventing what the organization’s spokesperson called “undisciplined candidates and sub-par campaigns.” Tea Party Patriots National Coordinator Jenny Beth Martin has already responded to Rove’s efforts, pointing out that Rove is more concerned with lining his pockets than saving ...

Exclusive Interview with Rep. Jim Jordan

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is the Chair of the Republican Study Committee (RSC). With nearly three-quarters of the House Republican Caucus joining its membership after the 2010 elections, the RSC has gone from being a thorn in the side of Republican leadership to being a major player in moving the party to the right. And while the party may still not be as dedicated to lower spending and tax reform as many grassroots conservatives would prefer, under Rep. Jordan the RSC has proposed significant spending, tax, and entitlement reforms. It also proposed a budget that would balance in five years. Rep. Jordan was kind enough to sit down with Dustin Siggins ...

Rep. Jordan: ‘John Koskinen needs to be held accountable’

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) announced today he will introduce a resolution on the House floor calling for  the impeachment of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, who has looked the other way as his agency targets conservatives for their political beliefs and even stonewalled congressional investigation into the scandal that continues to slow-roll or flat-out deny conservative groups tax-exempt status. The Washington Examiner has the details: "John Koskinen needs to be held accountable," the Ohio Republican said at a forum hosted by Judicial Watch. "Later today on the House floor, we will make the motion to impeach Mr. Koskinen." Jordan's plan is to ...
