Fallen Baton Rouge police officer Montrell Jackson has this message for his city

The shooters – in Dallas and now the three police officers murdered Sunday in Baton Rouge – targeting our law-enforcement officers speaks to an apparent divide in our nation. But one man endeavored to bridge that apparent divide during his time with the Baton Rouge Police Department. “These are trying times. Please don’t let hate infect your heart. This city MUST and WILL get better. I’m working in these streets so any protesters, officers, friends, family, or whoever, if you see me and need a hug or want to say a prayer. I got you,” wrote fallen Baton Rouge Police Officer Montrell Jackson in a July 8 Facebook post. Officer Jackson, ...

House passes bill preserving free speech thanks to patriots like you!

The House this week passed legislation, introduced by Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.), titled the “Preventing IRS Abuse and Protecting Free Speech Act,” that – if enacted – will rein in the out-of-control bureaucrats at the IRS who have used their power to target Americans whose ideologies differ from those held by the Obama administration. “In an era where President Obama’s IRS has been unleashed to target Americans for their political beliefs, passing this bill into law would be a huge win for the First Amendment. It would protect the identities of donors to charitable organizations from the IRS, eliminating one way the IRS could target ...

Tea Party Patriots thanks House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz for his efforts to impeach Obama’s IRS commissioner

It has been three years since the IRS admitted to targeting Americans for their political beliefs – singling them out for additional scrutiny, extra paperwork and even audits. This egregious abuse of power by the IRS went on for years and agency officials to this day are still covering up the full extent of their targeting scandal. House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) has been at the forefront of the congressional investigation into agency misconduct and has been tireless in his efforts to uncover the truth and hold the IRS and its high-level officials accountable. On Wednesday, Chairman Chaffetz again called for the ...

Treasury: March 2016 marks biggest March deficit in four years

The federal budget deficit spiked in March – driving the nation closer to economic disaster. ABC News has the story: The Treasury Department says the deficit for March totaled $108.0 billion. That marks the biggest March deficit in four years and was more than double the imbalance in March 2015. The large jump from a year ago reflected calendar shifts, which had made the 2015 deficit look smaller because $36 billion in benefit payments were shifted into February. Through the first six months of this budget year that began on Oct. 1, the deficit totals $461.0 billion. That represents an increase of 4.9 percent from the same period a year ...

(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. ...

IRS bulks up, audits more when Democrats are in control of Congress, White House

A study of the Internal Revenue Service from present day to 1978 reveals when Democrats control Congress and the White House, the agency targets more Americans. The Washington Examiner has the scoop: What's more, when Democrats run the Senate, as they did during the Obama administration's IRS targeting scandal, the agency is typically given more money to hire more auditors who conduct more audits. "Democratic control of the Senate is correlated with an increased IRS budget and workforce. The president's party has a statistically significant impact on the number of IRS enforcement personnel when both houses of Congress are controlled by ...

The Internal Revenue Service, after receiving tens of thousands of comments from concerned citizens, decided against implementing a proposed rule that would have authorized the agency to collect the social security numbers of donors who give $250 or more annually to a nonprofit charitable organization. The Hill has the inside story: “The Treasury Department and the IRS received a substantial number of public comments in response to the notice of proposed rulemaking,” the agency wrote Thursday morning in the Federal Register. “Many of these public comments questioned the need for donee reporting, and many comments expressed significant ...

Out-of-control IRS seeks new powers (Jenny Beth Martin’s Weekly Column in the Washington Times)

It’s a thought that should send a chill up every American’s spine: The Internal Revenue Service wants to increase its already-expansive powers. Fresh off the IRS targeting scandal – in which the agency systematically brought its enormous power to bear to target conservatives for years – the IRS now wants new authority to ask 501(c)(3) charitable organizations to collect the Social Security numbers of donors who contribute more than $250 in a given year. For good reason, Americans are alarmed that the IRS is even considering this new rule. Read more: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/nov/30/jenny-beth-martin-out-control-irs-...
