Columnist: House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady solution to ‘growth-igniting tax reform’

Pulitzer Prize-winning political journalist George Will in a recent syndicated column says House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas) holds the key to unlocking America’s earning potential. Read a portion of the column below: If there is going to be growth-igniting tax reform — and if there isn’t, American politics will sink deeper into distributional strife — Brady will begin it. Fortunately, the Houston congressman is focused on this simple arithmetic: Three percent growth is not 1 percent better than 2 percent growth, it is 50 percent better. If the Obama era’s average annual growth of 2.2 percent becomes the ...

Columnist: ‘Skeptical’ President Obama’s Justice Department will indict Hillary over email scandal

New York Post columnist and Fox News contributor Michael Goodwin in a column this week expressed doubt Hillary Clinton will be forced to answer for sending and receiving confidential emails via a private server when she was secretary of state. Read a portion of Mr. Goodwin’s column below: Color me skeptical that she will face criminal charges, especially after President Obama’s kind words for her. His praise of Clinton’s experience in an interview, twinned with his comparison of Bernie Sanders as a “bright, shiny object,” were widely interpreted as a Clinton endorsement. Correctly so, but there’s more to it. Obama wouldn’t be ...

States suing Obama administration: Executive amnesty would impose costly burdens

President Obama last year unveiled plans to shield up to 5 million illegal immigrants from deportation, an executive action on hold for a final ruling from the Supreme Court after a federal judge ruled 26 states have legitimate objections to the president’s executive-amnesty plans. The Hill has the inside story: Some legal experts argue the administration will have the upper hand because the high court has traditionally given wide latitude to the Executive Branch when it comes to immigration law. “This is an area where it is clearly the prerogative of the federal government to set immigration policy and the executive in particular to ...

Jenny Beth Martin: It’s up to the Supreme Court to end Pres. Obama’s lawless executive amnesty

Atlanta, GA — Tea Party Patriots CEO and Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today regarding the Supreme Court's decision to hear a challenge to President Obama's executive amnesty program: “It’s up to the Supreme Court to end this lawlessness, since Congress declined to use its power of the purse to stop President Obama’s plan to unilaterally grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants.

Politicial Correctness Now Trumps National Security (Jenny Beth Martin’s Weekly Column in the Washington Times)

The First Amendment has taken a brutal beating during President Obama’s time in office, despite the fact that the familiar text “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech” is one of our most cherished rights as American citizens.

Failures of the Obama Doctrine (Jenny Beth Martin’s Weekly Column in the Washington Times)

The signature feature of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy has been his administration’s dangerous combination of naiveté and bumbling incompetence. From underestimating the threat of ISIS, to miscalculating Russian President Vladimir Putin’s determination to implement an aggressive power-projection agenda in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, to mismanaging the conflict in Syria, to losing our hard-fought victory in Iraq, President Obama’s foreign policy failures are numerous - and Americans are less safe as a result.

Tea Party Patriots Opposes Omnibus Spending Bill

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today in opposition to the latest spending bill that was released last night: “Tea Party Patriots opposes the latest spending bill to come out of Washington, which will add to our national debt without any plan to balance our budget. Rather than forcing President Obama to consider a real plan to balance our budget in five years and offer our children and grandchildren a debt-free future, the Washington establishment is once again proving they don’t understand the fundamental issues facing our nation. We simply can’t afford to keep ...

It’s up to Congress to block Syrian refugee funding (Jenny Beth Martin’s Weekly Column in the Washington Times)

Otto von Bismarck once observed: “Only a fool learns from his own mistakes. The wise man learns from the mistakes of others.” President Obama’s seeming determination to refuse to learn from the lessons of Europe’s experience with Syrian refugees puts him clearly in the former category, not the latter.
