Shadowbosses: Government Unions Control America and Rob Taxpayers Blind – Mallory Factor

Shadowbosses: Government Unions Control America and Rob Taxpayers Blind – Mallory Factor “The Tea Party Patriots’ three core values are free markets, fiscal responsibility and constitutionally limited government. All three values are under assault by Shadow bosses who fight for closed markets, fiscally irresponsible contracts and greater government (and government union) control. In the striking new book SHADOW BOSSES, Mallory Factor lifts the veil on the Shadow bosses’ game. A wake-up call to all Americans – and especially to parents of school-aged children in Shadow boss-controlled schools.” – Jenny Beth Martin, Co-Founder and ...

CDC’s Blind Eye to the Border Crisis

Take a quick glance at recent headlines, and you’ll realize the latest YouTube sensation isn’t the only thing that’s going viral among children today. With the Enterovirus (EV) D68 spreading like wildfire in 21 states and outbreaks of tuberculosis popping up around the country, there is serious concern of how to control these invisible invaders, whose outbreaks have puzzled some health officials.

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Perry tells tea party group he was right to back Dewhurst over Cruz in 2012 primary Says loyalty bound him to his lieutenant governor, says more of this quality is needed in US politics “Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry told a tea party group Sunday that he supported his lieutenant governor against Ted Cruz in the 2012 Republican primary for the U.S. Senate out of loyalty — a characteristic, he said, that is sorely missing in American politics. During a conference call hosted by Tea Party Patriots, Mr. Perry said he endorsed then-Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst because of the strong relationship they had developed over the years. ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: The GOP quandary: How far right without falling over the edge? “…Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who is at or near the top of most early polls among Republicans, likes to boast how he stuck to conservative principles to win statewide office three times in a centrist state. “To win the center, you don’t have to go to the center, you have to lead,” he said last week during a Tea Party Patriots telephone town hall. Tea party loyalists are still somewhat wary of Walker, though, because of past positions on immigration and government support for ethanol, a big issue in Iowa, site of the nation’s first caucus. In 2006, he ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Tea Party first to cheer Cruz bid (quote by Jenny Beth) “He's a leader of the Tea Party in Washington, so it's not a surprise that Tea Party leaders are heaping praise on Sen. Ted Cruz's presidential announcement today. Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, was the first to embrace Cruz, noting his firm stands on conservative principles. "It's fitting that Sen. Ted Cruz is the first announced candidate in the GOP presidential field," Martin said in a statement. "In his two short years in the Senate, he has yielded to no one in championing the values of personal freedom, economic freedom and a debt-free ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Cruz to launch White House bid, will tea party go along? (Tea Party Patriots mentioned) “…While tea party leaders still like Cruz, they’re also looking elsewhere for 2016. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, regarded as a new voice and a Washington outsider, has drawn a passionate following, particularly in Iowa. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who won the 2008 Iowa caucus, retains a loyal conservative following. Walker so far has pulled ahead of everyone, and held a telephone town hall last week with followers of one group, the Tea Party Patriots. Afterward, the group said on its website “there is perhaps no one the ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Early line: 3-man race for 2016 GOP nomination “Much of who’s ahead and who’s not at this stage “is based on who’s known and who’s not known,” said Fergus Cullen, another former New Hampshire Republican chairman. Cullen hosted a reception at his home for Bush last week. What’s lacking in the top tier is a hardcore conservative or tea party favorite. Tea party loyalists are sympathetic to Walker, for example, but still have some doubts. At a Tea Party Patriots telephone town hall meeting this week, some questioned whether he has shifted his position on government help for ethanol over the years. Mike Huckabee, ...
