Senate Homeland Security Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson: ‘We have multiple threats to our critical infrastructure’

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) Sunday during a Tea Party Patriots national conference call told grassroots leaders nationwide that the “biggest threat” to national security is a general unwillingness to acknowledge dangers right in front of our noses – especially when it comes to our electrical grid. “We have our heads buried so far – I’ll say – in the sand in terms of our critical infrastructure, particularly our electrical grid,” he says. The threats to our critical infrastructure include EMPs; geomagnetic disturbances; and cyber attacks that could potentially shut down our electrical ...

Tea Party Patriots: Offensive comments by VA Secretary proves how “out-of-touch” the Obama Administration is with our veterans

ATLANTA, Ga – Tea Party Patriots CEO and Co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today reacting to comments made by Veterans’ Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald comparing the length of time veterans wait for health care to the length of time people wait in line at Disneyland. “Today’s comment by President Obama’s Veterans’ Affairs Secretary that VA shouldn’t be judged on the amount of time veterans wait to receive care because Disney doesn’t use wait times as a metric in its amusement parks shows just how out-of-touch the Obama Administration is with the needs of veterans, and anyone who can't see the difference ...

Forbes has the details: The House Judiciary Committee has scheduled hearings to examine alleged misconduct by IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. On May 24, the House Judiciary Committee will hear the ...

Jenny Beth Martin tells Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg what’s on her mind

“What’s on your mind?” It’s the question that appears on the status update of every personal Facebook account and is written in large letters atop the famous “Facebook wall” at the company headquarters in Menlo Park, California – and it’s not a question Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin shied away from answering Wednesday when she and other conservative leaders from across the country met with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to discuss recent allegations the social-networking site has been suppressing politically conservative news and propping up a homogeneous workplace culture that favors its more liberal members. “W...

Follow Rep. Roskam’s lead in protecting the First Amendment and demand his IRS legislation gets a vote!

The “Preventing IRS Abuse and Protecting Free Speech Act” (H.R. 5053), which would prohibit the IRS from demanding those who donate to nonprofit charities reveal their identities in annual returns, was introduced in April by Subcommittee on Oversight Chairman Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Illinois) but needs a floor vote in the House of Representatives. “In the past, the IRS has improperly accessed and released to the public information from a tax-exempt organization Schedule B, most notably – in full discussion of this committee in the past – the National Organization for Marriage had its Schedule B leaked to the press in 2012,” Rep. Roskam ...

Obamacare enrollee: “It’s going to be a monopoly, basically: ‘Here’s the price; take it or leave it’”

The Wall Street Journal recently published a story highlighting the departure of health-insurance companies from the imploding Obamacare marketplace. This to the detriment of the Obamacare-marketplace enrollees left behind in rural areas who – in many cases – have only a single option for their health-insurance carrier. Breitbart has the details: “The entire states of Alaska and Alabama are expected to have only one insurer on the health law’s signature online marketplaces next year, according to state regulators,” writes the Journal. “The same is expected to be true in parts of several other states, including Kentucky, Tennessee, ...

Jenny Beth Martin: President Obama isn’t interested in whether ‘Iran lives up to its end of the deal’

Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin in her latest column for The Washington Times highlights a New York Times interview with former CIA Director Leon Panetta in which the former defense secretary says President Obama was so hell-bent on getting a signed Iran nuclear deal that the commander in chief didn’t care about cost, national-security ramifications or misrepresenting the deal to the American public through the rose-colored glasses of master propagandist Ben Rhodes. Read the full commentary: You read that right - Leon Panetta, former CIA Director and Defense Secretary, just told The New York Times he does not think the president ...

PBS’ Charlie Rose, Obama speechwriters laugh hysterically over “If you like your insurance, you can keep it” line

PBS’ Charlie Rose got chummy with former speechwriters under Obama David Litt, Jon Favreau and Jon Lovett to gush over their prosaic prowess and – apparently – make light of the infamous “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it” line that left millions of Americans betrayed by their commander in chief when that very promise turned out to be a falsehood. “Lovett wrote the line about, ‘If you like your insurance, you can keep it,’” Favreau said before the four men erupted in laughter. President Obama, according to the Washington Free Beacon, on 36 occasions said his signature health-insurance law would not force ...
