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 <a href="http://www.wsj.com/articles/irs-confirms-illegal-immigrant-tax-refund-ruling-sparking-gop-outcry-1425341738" target="_blank">[1] </a>an “amnesty bonus.” Senator ...

Tea & Gruber in Georgetown, Texas!

On Thursday (February 19),  more than 50 patriots attended  Central Texas 9-12 Project and the WILCO Tea Party had their first meeting of 2015 at the Georgetown library. They planned the meeting using the best practices taught by Tea Party activist Conrad Quagliaroli in his presentation: “12 Tips and 30 Steps to Get the Most out of Your Meeting.” In addition, their guest speaker was Joyce Mucci of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), who reinforced the dangers of President Obama’s executive amnesty orders. The 15 members who attended Tea Party Patriots’ “Texas, Our Texas” advanced training conference in Houston ...

Jenny Beth Martin in The Daily Caller: Cancel next week’s recess!

Tea Party Patriots’ Jenny Beth Martin has a new op-ed up now at The Daily Caller, throwing down the gauntlet for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Her message, put simply, is this: cancel next week’s recess until the Senate passes the DHS funding bill. Writes Martin: Democrats – including seven who lamely said they opposed executive amnesty – filibustered a House-passed bill (HR 240) that would defund President Obama’s lawless actions. No chance, says new Minority Leader Harry Reid; fund Obama’s amnesty, or nothing. It’s important to note that by refusing to allow an up-or-down vote, Democrats are irretrievably culpable for any ...

Statement from Jenny Beth Martin on Sen. Vitter’s efforts to repeal Obamacare exemption

Since the passage of Obamacare, Sen. Vitter has been consistent in calling for the repeal of the illegal, special exemption for the political ruling class. He is to be commended for using his chairmanship to root out corruption and political privilege.  Hardworking, taxpaying Americans are forced to live under President Obama's nationalized healthcare regime; kudos to David Vitter for this first step toward leveling the playing field.

Obama’s disastrous plan to tax college savings

As President Obama mentioned in his State of the Union earlier this week, he has some ideas about how to make college more affordable and accessible. One of those ideas is to offer free community college, paid for in part by new taxes. New taxes [1] on…wait for it…college savings plans, including tax-free 529s. Consider, for a moment, the irony: the president wants to give more people the opportunity to go to college, but he wants to tax the method families use to make that higher-education dream come true. Lots of middle-class families finance college tuition through a combination of loans and savings. But President Obama’s logic seems to ...

“Texas, Our Texas” Advanced Training Conference

They keynote address was given by Tea Party Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert from Tyler, Texas, who courageously ran for Speaker against the political establishment.

He was presented with a Gadsden ...

Congressional Conservatives should be against an increase in the gas tax

We’re barely into the new term of the 114th Congress, and already some Republicans are caving on taxes. Since when should the GOP be pushing tax increases? In the last few days, Sens. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Bob Corker (R-TN), John Thune (R-SD), Jim Inhofe (R-OK) and Susan Collins (R-ME) have all signaled publicly [1] that they would support an increase in the gas tax. Hatch went so far as to call it “a small price to pay for the best highway system in the world.” Um, sure… It’s time to remind elected officials, once again, that Americans need a break from Washington tax hikes. The last time we checked, middle-class families weren’t ...

Obama snubs VA Hospital during Phoenix visit

Arrogant? Ignorant? Elitist? Self-righteous? Out of touch? On Thursday, President Obama visited Phoenix [1], Arizona to deliver a speech about things like mortgage rates and Federal Housing Administration loans. All important stuff. What was less important, apparently, was visiting the Veterans Affairs hospital located in Phoenix; the very hospital at the center of the painfully awful VA scandal. It’s not just that President Obama didn’t want to go out of his way to visit the VA; his motorcade literally drove right past the hospital. He could have chosen to stop and visit sick and wounded veterans who were mistreated by incompetent VA ...

Shadowbosses: Government Unions Control America and Rob Taxpayers Blind – Mallory Factor

Shadowbosses: Government Unions Control America and Rob Taxpayers Blind – Mallory Factor “The Tea Party Patriots’ three core values are free markets, fiscal responsibility and constitutionally limited government. All three values are under assault by Shadow bosses who fight for closed markets, fiscally irresponsible contracts and greater government (and government union) control. In the striking new book SHADOW BOSSES, Mallory Factor lifts the veil on the Shadow bosses’ game. A wake-up call to all Americans – and especially to parents of school-aged children in Shadow boss-controlled schools.” – Jenny Beth Martin, Co-Founder and ...
