5 Times the Obama Administration found itself on the wrong side of the law

The Obama Administration does not have a stellar track record when it comes to getting affirmation for its radical agenda in the U.S. court system. Unfortunately, when the President of the United States isn’t blatantly ignoring the law, he’s looking for ways to at least sidestep or tweak it. Thankfully, he’s been pretty unsuccessful once challenged in court. 1. National Labor Relations Board v. Noel Canning. When the president tried to do some improper recess appointments. Yeah, that didn’t work out so well. 2. Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. When the president tried to tell private companies they had to violate their religious ...

GOP Slams Obama’s SOTU Speech as Divisive, Confrontational

Republicans Tuesday charged President Barack Obama with putting forth a highly divisive State of the Union speech that offered no new proposals and included a plan to raise $320 billion in new taxes that had no chance of passing Congress. "He's just being confrontational," Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, told Newsmax, focusing on Obama's tax plan. "He knows that's not going to pass either chamber of Congress... Continue here.

Rendezvous With Destiny: Ronald Reagan and the Campaign That Changed America – Craig Shirley

Rendezvous With Destiny: Ronald Reagan and the Campaign That Changed America – Craig Shirley As late as Election Day, headlines across the country blared that the race was “too close to call.” Even on the verge of his historic triumph in the 1980 presidential election, political observers continued to underestimate Ronald Wilson Reagan. In Rendezvous with Destiny, the long-awaited follow-up to his widely praised account of Reagan’s insurgent 1976 presidential campaign, Craig Shirley tells the incredible behind-the-scenes story of Reagan’s improbable run to the White House in 1980—of how the “too close to call” election became ...

Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government – Yaron Brook and Don Watkins

Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government – Yaron Brook and Don Watkins “Free Market Revolution will raise the ire of every statist, socialist and crony capitalist. Rand understood – as do the authors of this all-too-timely book – that free markets are, indeed, moral while Big Government is manifestly not.”—Steve Forbes “A powerful and unapologetic case in support of capitalism. For those who think more government will solve our nation’s problems, Free Market Revolution will open your eyes. For those who can already see the light, it will sharpen your vision.”–Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific ...

What’s wrong with the CRomnibus

Last Thursday night, the House of Representatives voted to approve a massive spending bill, informally known as the "CRomnibus" (a combination of CR, or continuing resolution, and an omnibus bill). The 1,600-page bill was only released late on the preceding Tuesday night. Just as we saw in 2010 with Obamacare, the House chose to vote on a bill before reading it or giving the American public time to understand what exactly the bill says. The Tea Party Patriots’ support team members have been reading the bill for the past few days and we have learned just how awful this bloated spending bill really is. Among the information we have learned: • ...

You Spelled “Spying” Wrong: Obama on Transparency

For nearly five years, President Obama has touted his Administration as transparent. The White House’s website even says so: My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government.  We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government. In February, the President directly bragged that this goal had been accomplished: “This is the most transparent administration in history,” Obama said during a Google Plus “Fireside” Hangout. “I ...

Irony Alert: The Budget Blame Game has Already Started

Over the last several weeks, many Republicans and most Democrats have said the media will blame the GOP for any government shutdown that takes place over the funding of Obamacare. Never mind that all fiscal conservatives want to keep the government running, with the exception of Obamacare – and therein lies a distinct note of irony for Republicans worried about the blame game: the media is already scapegoating Republicans, more than a month in advance of when the 2013 fiscal year ends. Consider just a few examples in mainstream media publications: Politico: They’d never say it publicly. But catch many Democrats in an honest moment and they ...

Fighting a Two-Front War

Last week, the Coalition to Reduce Spending called out the Tea Party for supporting efforts to delay Obamacare implementation via the upcoming Continuing Resolution. Calling delay of the worst legislation in decades a “fool’s errand” wasn’t a great start, but their response to the post is worth examining for two reasons: It’s our view that those who care about the budget should be focused like a laser on making sure sequestration-level spending is maintained, not be caught up in a sideshow that is doomed to failure. Fortunately for America, Tea Party activists have proven their ability to fight on two fronts at the same time. Yes, it does ...

New York Times, You Spelled “Accountable” Wrong

Did you know holding politicians accountable is “downright threatening?” According to Francis Clines on a New York Times blog, it is: When it comes to flexing political muscle, Tea Party zealots don’t hesitate to be downright threatening, as in their warning to Senator Lamar Alexander, Republican of Tennessee that he’d better retire from office because “our great nation can no longer afford compromise and bipartisanship, two traits for which you have become famous.” The warning was in an open letter from a score of Tea Party groups, most of them county operations in the senator’s home state. They said he would face a right-wing primary ...
