Jenny Beth Martin: Obama’s game of high-stakes postelection policy poker

President Obama has been largely mum on details for his agenda after the 2014 Midterm Election. But that doesn’t mean Americans don’t know what to expect. In a new op-ed for The Washington Times, Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin writes that even though President Obama keeps hidden details about his priorities, from Eric Holder’s replacement as Attorney General to immigration reform, the president’s past leaves little to the imagination. “When it comes to his plans for the next two years, though,” writes Martin, “Mr. Obama has provided the American people with plenty of ‘tells,’ which betray the strength or weaknes...

Has the State Department learned nothing post-Benghazi?

Todd Keil, one of the experts who testified at the first Benghazi hearing [1] on Wednesday told the committee that the State Department has failed to follow through on proposals that would improve diplomatic security. “Clear the smoke.

This week, House Democratic Leader ...

Immigration and Obamacare are Keys to 2014 Elections ATLANTA, GA - Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder, Jenny Beth Martin, today issued the following statement in response to the House GOP Leadership’s remarks on Obamacare and immigration reform. Tea Party Patriots and millions of other conservatives have been right all along on immigration reform and Obamacare, and the fact that the Republican leadership is walking back its ill-conceived positions on those critical issues is proof.
