Day 11: Remind candidates the Tea Party is watching

It’s Friday – only 11 days from the election, which means we’re almost there! Keep it up! When November 7 rolls around, it is our goal to make sure that when every Patriot wakes up, we know we did everything we could to sway public opinion towards the principles of the Tea Party. As part of that effort, we have two action items today. First we’re urging you to make your normal 25 calls per day to undecided voters. Second, please write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper, reminding candidates that the Tea Party will hold them accountable if they are elected. With November 6 closing in fast, it’s important that candidates realize ...

Of all of the plans that received votes in Congress this year, the RSC has put forth the only one that would balance the budget in a reasonable period of time. The House Republican budget, for example, balances in over twenty years, but as all Patriots know, one ...

Mike McCalister are courting conservatives in a wide-open primary to challenge incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., in 2012. The four faced off August 20 in a two-hour Orlando debate.

Illegal immigrants already take advantage of public education and other benefits. Now some politicians in California are moving to grant illegal immigrants health-insurance benefits, too.

Jerry Brown, aims to allow people who are in the country illegally to buy private health insurance on the state's exchange. Its author, Democratic state Sen.

(VIDEO) Tea Party Patriots CEO Jenny Beth Martin’s Remarks from CPAC

Hello, CPAC! You know, the President of the United States last addressed this gathering eight years ago. Do the math – it was a different president then. As he sat in the Oval Office, preparing for that speech, he came across a phrase in the draft that confused him. So he asked, “What is this movement you keep talking about in the speech?” The speechwriter, stunned, responded. “Well, the CONSERVATIVE movement,” he answered. “You know, the one that started back in the sixties, when conservative groups first took root.” That apparently didn’t sit well with the President. “Let me tell you something,” he said. ...

Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and billionaire business mogul Donald Trump, Tea Party Patriots CEO and Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin says in her latest commentary for The Washington Times. Read Jenny Beth’s column: The federal debt and the profligate spending habits behind the debt are emblematic of the entire culture of Washington, D.C. – unaccountable, irresponsible, and excessi...
