TPP: Senate Democrats’ Investigation into IRS Targeting a “Whitewash”

ATLANTA, GA – Today, Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, blasted the Senate Permanent Committee on Investigations and Senator Carl Levin’s (D-MI) report on the so-called “investigation” into the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of tea party groups. “The Senate Democrats’ so-called ‘investigation’ into the IRS’ selective targeting of tea party and conservative groups for additional scrutiny has been a whitewash from the very beginning,” said Jenny Beth Martin. “The man who conducted this so-called ‘investigation,’ Senator Levin, is himself the subject of a pending investigation for exerting pressure ...

Obama Lost Jon Stewart

Over the last couple of weeks, Jon Stewart has garnered a great number of conservative fans for his hammering of HHS Secretary Sebelius and another segment of his show dedicated to how the Obamacare website is falling apart. Last night, he dedicated almost 15 minutes of his show to bashing both parties in Congress, the President, the Obamacare website, and the NSA’s spying on Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel. While some of the content is questionable in nature – some language may be unsuitable for children – the political content is pure gold. Stewart skewered the absolute ridiculous nature of everything that is wrong in Washington. ...

Obamacare Loses Piers Morgan and Jon Stewart

Over the last several years, CNN host Piers Morgan has gained a reputation as an aggressive ideologue who toes the big government line on everything from guns to religious freedom. Jon Stewart, of course, is the liberal host of “The Daily Show” who recently took HHS Secretary Sebelius to school on Obamacare. It looks like the American people can officially count Morgan and Stewart as official critiques of the Obamacare rollout after last night’s shows. First up is Morgan, who interviewed White House Press Secretary Jay Carney: MORGAN: Joining me now is White House Press Secretary Jay Carney. Jay, thanks for joining me. As suppose you have ...

Stewart vs. Sebelius: HHS Secretary Implodes during Grilling from “Daily Show” Host

On Monday night, Jon Stewart had HHS Secretary Sebelius on “The Daily Show” to discuss Obamacare and its failed exchange websites. The top health care official in America was treated to a proper interrogation, beginning as soon as she sat down. Stewart pulled up a laptop and said he was going to download every movie in history while she tried to sign up for the exchanges…and they would see who got done first. The segment is worth watching in full, especially because after the interview, Stewart accused Sebelius of lying to him about why employers have a mandate delay and individuals do not. However, there are three things Stewart missed in ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: The GOP quandary: How far right without falling over the edge? “…Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who is at or near the top of most early polls among Republicans, likes to boast how he stuck to conservative principles to win statewide office three times in a centrist state. “To win the center, you don’t have to go to the center, you have to lead,” he said last week during a Tea Party Patriots telephone town hall. Tea party loyalists are still somewhat wary of Walker, though, because of past positions on immigration and government support for ethanol, a big issue in Iowa, site of the nation’s first caucus. In 2006, he ...

HEALTHCARE: How many will have to pay back Obamacare subsidies? “More Americans will owe the government money for their Obamacare subsidy than won't, says a new analysis. A big upcoming Tax Day question is how many Americans with government-subsidized health insurance will find that they collected more in subsidies than they're qualified for and have to pay some of it back — and how many will find themselves in the opposite position, with the government owing them money. The Kaiser Family Foundation estimates that half of all subsidy-eligible households will be in the first boat, owing the government an average payment of $794. That situat...

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 ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Early line: 3-man race for 2016 GOP nomination “Much of who’s ahead and who’s not at this stage “is based on who’s known and who’s not known,” said Fergus Cullen, another former New Hampshire Republican chairman. Cullen hosted a reception at his home for Bush last week. What’s lacking in the top tier is a hardcore conservative or tea party favorite. Tea party loyalists are sympathetic to Walker, for example, but still have some doubts. At a Tea Party Patriots telephone town hall meeting this week, some questioned whether he has shifted his position on government help for ethanol over the years. Mike Huckabee, ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Scott Walker: I Will Run as a Conservative “…Later in his town hall remarks, Walker criticized the Obama administration's handling of foreign policy challenges posed by the Islamic State and expressed concern about the administration's handling of the Iranian nuclear threat. Walker also responded to a question from Tea Party Patriots President Jenny Beth Martin over his position on ethanol. Her question noted that while Walker had opposed a Wisconsin effort to mandate its use in midgrade gasoline, he recently said in Iowa that he would "go forward on continuing the [federal] Renewable Fuel Standard." Walker responded that ...
