Hillary’s Upward Failure

JACKSONVILLE – We have only nineteen months until Election Day. That’s a blink of an eye in the sweep of history, but a long, hard slog in a political campaign. It’s time to get to work. Our job between now and November 8, 2016 is to identify, nominate and elect a candidate who can a) defeat Hillary Clinton and b) serve as an effective, courageous and reliably conservative President. First things first. Will Hillary run? Rational analysis says no. She’s old, she’s tired and she gives every evidence of being an unhappy warrior. To her, those nineteen months may seem like nineteen years. Here she hasn’t even announced her candidacy and ...

Hillary’s email server “wiped clean”

Before turning anything over to Congressional investigators, Hillary Clinton wiped her email server clean, forever deleting emails that she sent during her tenure as Secretary of State. And just like that, the Hillary email scandal reached a whole new level. Or did it? Shockingly, Hillary has plenty of defenders in the Washington, D.C. bubble. But that should be part of the scandal, too. The revelation came in response to a subpoena issued by the House Select Committee on Benghazi, which asked Clinton to turn over all emails and documents relating to the 2012 terrorist attack. When Clinton World finally responded to the subpoena, their answer ...

Legislative Update for 03/29/15

Listen to the legislative update podcast here: CALENDAR: The House and Senate are both out of session for the next two weeks. LAST WEEK’S HOUSE FLOOR ACTION: As happens every now and then, I need to begin this week’s update with a correction to something I said last week. Last week, when I was discussing House floor action the week before, I said the House had passed the Rules for both H.R. 1029, the EPA Science Advisory Board Act, and H.R. 1030, the Secret Science Reform Act. But I most specifically did NOT say the two bills had passed on the floor. That’s because I couldn’t find any record online of the votes on final passage ...

Tens of thousands of convicted illegals were released onto the streets last year

The Department of Homeland Security (emphasis on the worlds “homeland” and “security”) is having a hard time living up to its name. According to new documents obtained by Judicial Watch, [1] DHS released roughly 166,000 criminal illegal immigrants into the U.S. as of April 2014. These criminals include, but are not limited to, rapists, murders and kidnappers. And releasing them is supposed to secure our homeland how, exactly? This information, it should be noted, comes after a lengthy legal back-and-forth. In July 2014, Judicial Watch was forced to file a lawsuit against DHS, after the agency repeatedly failed to respond to Freedom of ...

Tea Party Patriots Weekly Legislative Update for 03/22/15
