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. ...

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: 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 ...

Jenny Beth Martin Statement on Ted Cruz’s pending announcement

It’s fitting that Sen. Ted Cruz will be the first announced candidate in the GOP presidential field. 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 future. As the field expands, we will look forward to seeing how the other candidates advance the liberty movement and put forward conservative solutions to undoing the mess our ‘transformational’ president has made of our Republic.”

Trust and transparency in the age of Hillary

The results are in [1],and they’re not surprising. A new survey shows that Americans’ trust in government is at all-time lows. Only 11 percent, for example, have any confidence in the executive branch. The survey’s findings underline the latest scandal enveloping Washington: Hillary Clinton’s private emails. Keep in mind this is far from a political scandal. Rather, it cuts to the heart of everything that’s wrong with the DC elite: the absolute avoidance of accountability and the unwillingness to abide by the same set of rules imposed on average Americans. As Secretary of State, Hillary conducted official business on a private server ...

Tax refunds for illegal immigrants?

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has officially confirmed that it’s going to allow illegal immigrants to apply for up to three-years-worth of tax refunds. Yes, you read that right. Illegal immigrants, who broke the law by entering the U.S. and continued to break the law by residing here, can now claim benefits from the IRS. The policy, of course, is all thanks to President Obama’s executive action on amnesty. On Capitol Hill, some are rightfully labeling it [1] “amnesty bonus.” Senator Chuck Grassley even stated that ‘the tax code shouldn’t reward those who broke our immigration laws.” We couldn’t agree more. President ...
