Major First Amendment Victory in Georgia!

You did it! Thanks to your efforts, the freedom of speech has been successfully defended in Georgia! In the dark of night, Georgia’s big-spending Republican establishment brazenly schemed to trample on the First Amendment and silence conservative organizations. In the Peach State, “bipartisanship” apparently means both parties team up to intimate grassroots activists, just like Lois Lerner and President Obama’s IRS. Senate Bill 217, was supposed to deal with ethics fines for politicians was arrogantly amended by the George House of Representative’s Rules Committee to silence pro-liberty organizations from communicating with voters ...

Statement of Jenny Beth Martin on Georgia SB 127

Politicians of both parties in the Georgia Legislature are conspiring to trample on the First Amendment, and it will be a sad day for liberty if this measure passes. It’s rare when politicians reach across the aisle; they’ve done so in Georgia, though, in hopes of treating grassroots activists the same way Lois Lerner and the Obama IRS have. They seek to intimidate concerned citizens and insulate themselves from accountability, and they’re doing it in a cowardly way, on the last day of the legislative session. They should know that we are watching. This bill is a travesty, and an arrogant, brazen assault on the First Amendment. All ...

Georgia Becomes First State to Pass Convention of States Application

Tea Party Patriots' home state of Georgia became the first state in the history of the United States to pass the Convention of States application, aimed at limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.

The Convention of States project ...

Jenny Beth Martin: Democrat stalling, blocking Trump cabinet picks hypocritical

Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin in a recent column points out that Democrat stalling confirmation of President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet nominees is unfair considering many of President Obama’s nominees were unanimously confirmed upon his inauguration. The Washington Times has the commentary: Senate Democrats, reports Politico, are planning to “give Trump Cabinet picks the [Merrick] Garland treatment,” including “a grinding confirmation process, weighing delay tactics that could eat up weeks of the Senate calendar and hamper [Trump’s] first 100 days in office.” Further, Politico elaborates, at least five ...

Just in time for Halloween, this man’s Obamacare premium reaches frightening figure

It’s become an all-too-familiar story and it’s getting worse: The next-door neighbors forced onto an Obamacare exchange will be paying more for their health insurance than Americans’ average monthly mortgage payment – this after President Obama said his signature health-insurance plan would “lower” premiums… Fox News’ Todd Starnes has the scoop: Mr. Wells, of Colquitt, Georgia, is facing a massive (and I do mean massive) increase in his monthly health insurance premiums, according to a letter he received from BlueCross BlueShield of Georgia. “Your current monthly premium is $711.83,” read the letter. “Starting in January, ...

Sen. Perdue: The ‘merry-go-round’ of artificially low interest rates ‘is going [to] stop’

When interest rates on our debt suddenly balloon, our nation will be facing even greater economic difficulties unless Congress enacts a solution. Fortunately, there are members of Congress like freshman Senator David Perdue of Georgia who know the value of a dollar and how frivolously we as a nation are managing our books. The Daily Signal has the scoop: Still, the debt doesn’t worry Perdue as much as the interest liability does. Should those rates rise—and Perdue is confident they will—he predicts the country won’t be able to make the minimum interest payments. For the past seven years, the Federal Reserve has targeted rates at an ...
