Jenny Beth Martin: ‘I do not want, five years from now, to have my now-13-year-old daughter tell me she has just been drafted against her will’

Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin in her latest column lays out the real purpose behind the clause in the National Defense Authorization Act, passed this week by the Senate, that mandates 18-year-old women register for selective service in the event of a draft – and it has nothing to do with being more inclusive and curbing gender discrimination. The Washington Times has the commentary: I do not want, five years from now, to have my now-13-year-old daughter tell me she has just been drafted against her will, and forced by government mandate to put her life plans on hold for two years and make herself available for a combat unit ...

Tea Party Patriots are Hopeful the House Judiciary Committee will Move Forward with Impeachment Proceedings for Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner John Koskinen

ATLANTA, Ga – Tea Party Patriots CEO and Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today ahead of the House Judiciary Committee holding hearings today into the misconduct of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.   “Years after President Obama’s IRS admitted to targeting Americans for their political beliefs, no one at the agency has been held accountable for their misconduct. Lois Lerner was never charged for directing the targeting and IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, who was appointed to clean up the mess after the targeting was revealed, has made false statements under oath, ...

You will not believe how many credit hours it takes to qualify for this Tennessee license

A longtime hairdresser in Tennessee was driven out-of-state when Tennessee shampoo-licensing laws became too burdensome to handle. The Daily Signal has the story: In 1996, the Tennessee General Assembly passed a law requiring natural hair stylists to attain a cosmetologist’s license through the state’s Board of Cosmetology and Barber Examiners. Natural hair braiders like Nutall had excelled in their craft for years, learning braiding from their mothers and grandmothers. But now, the state was telling them they had to log more than 1,500 hours of education through an eight-week course with costs topping $12,000, Nutall recalled, and all for ...

Editor: U.S. credit will max out when the world ‘loses confidence in the dollars we owe’

A financial historian who has been writing for decades about economics says it's time to stop incurring debt otherwise we will soon find our proverbial credit card has been declined. TIME has the commentary: We owe more than we can easily repay. We spend too much and borrow too much. Worse, we promise too much. We conjure dollar bills by the trillions–pull them right out of thin air. I won’t insist that this can’t go on, because it has. I only say that it will eventually stop. I don’t know the date, but I believe that I know the reason. It will stop when the world loses confidence in the dollars we owe. Come that moment of truth, the ...

Heads up: These 8 Obamacare co-ops will probably fail this year

The health-insurance co-ops created under Obamacare are falling like dominoes, with eight of the remaining 11 likely to collapse within the year, according to analysis from an investigative reporter. The Daily Caller has the scoop: Twelve of the original 23 federally financed co-ops have already collapsed. The co-op program was funded with $2.5 billion in 2010. “In general, there’s not a turnaround in sight. The same problems that plagued them before are continuing,” Thomas P. Miller, senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute who previously served as the senior health economist for the congressional Joint Economic Committee, told ...

Financial expert: Entitlement spending by 2019 will eclipse tax revenue

The U.S. is experiencing one of the longest economic recoveries since the 1960s and could be teetering on recession, as interest on our debts continue to accrue and as entitlement spending continues to balloon over the next three years. Forbes has the commentary: The weakest recovery in modern history has stretched on for 69 months… Sometime in 2019, entitlement spending, defense, and interest will consume all the tax revenues collected by the US government. That means all spending for everything else will have to be borrowed. The CBO projects the deficit will rise to over $1 trillion by 2023. By that point, entitlement spending and net ...

Report: Americans in 2016 will pay Uncle Sam more than they’ll spend on clothing, food, housing

  The Tax Foundation in its annual report released Wednesday says by April 24 Americans will have earned enough money to pay their taxes for the year and that – collectively – Americans this year will spend more paying Uncle Sam than they will on clothing, food and housing combined. The Washington Examiner lists some of the key findings: — Collectively, Americans will spend more on taxes in 2016 than they will on food, clothing, and housing combined. — Americans will pay $3.3 trillion in federal taxes and $1.6 trillion in state and local taxes, for a total bill of almost $5.0 trillion, or 31 percent of the nation's income. ...

Survey: Tax experts in D.C. doubtful tax reform will happen in 2016

  Tax experts believe no comprehensive tax reform will take place this year, according to a survey of about 120 industry executives. Morning Consult has the story: The National Foreign Trade Council and the law firm Miller & Chevalier Chartered, both based in Washington, conducted the survey of tax executives, which found widespread uncertainty about even the possibility of Congress passing comprehensive tax reform in the coming years. “While there’s hope that changes in presidential and congressional leadership will have a positive impact on tax reform, respondents are still unsure whether such reform will actually happen,” ...

Jenny Beth Martin: Obama’s SCOTUS pick defies will of the people

Tea Party Patriots CEO Jenny Beth Martin in her latest column for The Washington Times underscores that Americans voting in a majority in the Senate in 2014 sent a resounding message to President Obama: No more liberal policies! Read Jenny Beth’s commentary below: President Obama’s insistence that Senate Republicans accede to his demands and confirm Judge Merrick Garland to be a new Justice of the Supreme Court directly contradict a simple fact of American political life – that more recent elections can (and often do) cancel the policy results of earlier elections. “Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won,” the ...

Letter to the editor: ‘The borrowing ability of our government will run out’

The national debt today stands at $19.2 trillion – a figure that should alarm any parent or member of Congress, according to one concerned citizen from Moorestown, New Jersey. The Courier-Post Online has the details: If you personally had to borrow the money and make your children pay for 26 weeks or more of payments to your unemployed neighbor or welfare, subsidized housing, free meals at school and Medicaid for any immigrant that can reach our shores, would you do it? Would you borrow more and ask your children to pay for the best military hardware in the world, the world’s best-paid police, firemen, teachers and their administrators and ...
