Tax Day Rally in Cincinnati, Ohio!

On April 15, Americans scrambled to file their tax returns and send too much money to Washington, D.C. Just after the post offices closed, more than 300 patriots attended the Cincinnati Tea Party Tax Day event. It was hosted Sharonville Convention Center in northern Hamilton County, not far from the I.R.S. office which was initially blamed for President Obama and Lois Lerner’s criminal targeting of Tea Party Patriots. Ann Becker, President of the Cincinnati Tea Party, did an extraordinary job organizing the rally. As she told The Cincinnati Enquirer, “Southwest Ohio is one of the nation's conservative powerhouses. And we're working with our ...

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) & Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) Tax Day Tele Townhall With Tea Party Patriots – April 15, 2015

(Photo Credits: Public Domain, Wikipedia (1 and 2) On April 15, Tea Party Patriots was honored to have two tax-fighting conservatives on our Tax Day Tele Townhall: Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH). Except for President Obama, no one looks forward to Tax Day. Shamefully, the tax code has grown into a 70,000+ page monster, the IRS has been used as a weapon against Americans for their political and religious beliefs, and politicians use it to hide favoritism for special interest groups in the form of tax credits. On our tele townhall, both Senator Lee and Rep. Jordan described in detail why we must simplify our tax ...

New IRS emails: Lerner knew what she was doing, and so did John McCain, apparently

New emails obtained by Judicial Watch shine even more light on the depth of the IRS targeting scandal. As much as the left would like for America to be convinced the scandal is over, it is far from it. Among the new revelations is a February 2012 email in which Lois Lerner, then head of the IRS’ Exempt Organizations ranch, asked for a new program to be set up that would “put together some training to help [IRS staffers] understand the potential pitfalls” of giving away too much information to Congress. Another 2013 email reveals that Lerner said she is willing to take the blame for not providing adequate direction to staffers on their ...

Arsonists, Terrorists, and Anarchists, Oh My!

This week, two of Washington’s most powerful Democrats accused Tea Party activists of being “legislative arsonists” and “anarchists,” respectively. Now a Republican Congressman is joining in the fun, saying those who stand with Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) are engaging in “governmental terrorism.” What is governmental terrorism, according to Rep. Peter King (R-NY)? The New York Times has the scoop! What offends Mr. King is that Mr. Cruz…dared other Republicans to be as pure and relentless in their opposition to the health care program as he is, even though everyone knew his tactics were doomed. It also struck Mr. King as an unprincipled ...

Two-and-a-Half Years: A History of Speaker Bohener’s “Winning”

On Monday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) told reporters there would be a “whale of a fight” over the debt ceiling this fall. Given the last two-and-a-half years of history, however, it’s clear that Speaker Bohener’s intimidating talking points rhetoric is just that – rhetoric. Here are a few examples: In the 2010 “Pledge to America,” the soon-to-be Speaker said a Republican majority in the House would cut $100 billion from the federal budget. He verified this at CPAC in 2011. The final “cut,” only a couple of months later? $352 million. The next great debate in Washington was over the debt ceiling in August 2011. The ...

Oh the Humanity: Sequester Reduces Government Conference Travel

Each year, the federal government wastes hundreds of billions of dollars on fraud, duplication, and other inefficiencies, many times the size of sequestration’s “cuts” to the federal budget. Over at The New York Times, however, the narrative of sequestration’s “harm” must be maintained: Five months after gridlock in Washington triggered the deep spending cuts known as sequestration, much of the United States government is grounded. Most government travel budgets have been cut this year by 30 percent, the result of an administration directive forcing managers to make difficult policy decisions about whom to send, where to send them and ...
