The Reagan Agenda is Back in Business

It may not be morning in America quite yet, but I think we can see rosy-fingered dawn peeking over the horizon. Last month, Ted Cruz stepped up. Last week, Rand Paul stepped up. Last Monday, Marco Rubio stepped up. Their arrival may not be the second coming of Ronald Reagan, but it’s the second coming of the Reagan coalition. Does anybody make the case for traditional values more cogently than Ted Cruz? Does anybody confront overweening government more consistently than Rand Paul? Does anybody summon the themes of American patriotism more evocatively than Marco Rubio? Family values. Limited government. American exceptionalism. Those are the ...

Liberty is on the Rise! YAL Activist Training in the Buckeye and Lone Star States

The Young Americans for Liberty state conventions continued, which Tea Party Patriots are proud to sponsor.

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 ...

New IRS emails: Lerner knew what she was doing, and so did John McCain, apparently

New emails obtained by Judicial Watch shine even more light on the depth of the IRS targeting scandal. As much as the left would like for America to be convinced the scandal is over, it is far from it. Among the new revelations is a February 2012 email in which Lois Lerner, then head of the IRS’ Exempt Organizations ranch, asked for a new program to be set up that would “put together some training to help [IRS staffers] understand the potential pitfalls” of giving away too much information to Congress. Another 2013 email reveals that Lerner said she is willing to take the blame for not providing adequate direction to staffers on their ...

Must Read from Sen. Mike Lee: Our Lost Constitution

From his first day in the Senate, Mike Lee has been one of the staunchest conservatives and defenders of the Constitution. Whether it’s personal liberty, economic freedom, taxes, or a debt-free future, Senator Lee has time and time again stood strong on conservative principles. Today, we are so pleased to be able to support him in his latest endeavor. Sen. Lee just published a new book titled, “Our Lost Constitution.” The book tells the untold stories of specific provisions of our nation’s founding document – how they came to be, who proposed them, who opposed them, and more. He’s truly provides a must-read narrative of the Constitution ...

ObamaCare’s Fifth Birthday Makes Us Sick

Five years ago today, without a single Republican vote, Congress rammed the unconstitutional Protection and Affordable Care Act into law. We know it as “Obamacare.” As former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) one famously said, “[W]e have to pass [Obamacare], so that you can find out what is in it.” Five years later, we now know why this massive overhaul of America’s already imperfect healthcare system was rushed through at rapid speed before the public could scrutinize the details. Despite President Barack Obama’s promises that if you liked your plan, you could keep it, millions of people have lost their insurance coverage. Millions ...
