Tea Party Patriots in Arizona rally opposition to President Obama’s liberal Supreme Court nominee

Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) to preserve former Justice Antonin Scalia’s legacy on the Supreme Court and continue rejecting President Obama’s liberal, anti-Second-Amendment Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland. “Because this nomination has the potential to so dramatically shift the balance of the court, I continue to believe that the Senate is fully justified in waiting until the presidential election before proceeding to fill the seat,” Sen. Flake said in a statement declining support for the nominee ...

Tea Party Patriots in Colorado rally opposition to President Obama’s liberal Supreme Court nominee

Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) to reverse course and reject President Obama’s liberal, anti-Second-Amendment Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland. “Because he is thoughtful, thorough, and well-respected across the political spectrum, obstructing a fair process, much less refusing to meet with him, makes no sense,” Sen. Bennet said in a statement in April after meeting with the nominee. But the Senate is operating exactly within its constitutional authority to decline ...

Senator: ‘Sanctuary city policies impose a very real cost’

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) Wednesday on the Senate floor introduced an amendment that would discipline local officials that don’t collaborate with federal immigration officials when it comes to sharing information about illegal immigrants – an enforcement breakdown that for good reason has many Americans bemoaning our failed immigration system. The Morning Call has the details: The amendment that Toomey introduced Wednesday would strip federal community development money from cities or counties that do not detain prisoners suspected of being in the country illegally or that decline to share information with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforce...

We are in the middle of a presidential election, and the Senate majority is giving the American people a ...

Jenny Beth Martin: ‘Americans are opposed to shifting the [Supreme Court] balance in a more liberal direction’

As a small contingent of Senate liberals continue to spar with Senate conservatives over whether to hold hearings for President Obama’s left-wing Supreme Court nominee Judge Merrick Garland, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin in her latest column reminds us Americans don’t want someone like Judge Merrick Garland on the Supreme Court and instead want to see more conservative values reflected on the bench. The Washington Times has her commentary: While the Left has argued that the Senate must act immediately to confirm Merrick Garland, President Obama’s liberal pick for the Supreme Court, conservatives have consistently countered ...

Former Senate Budget Committee Chairman: ‘It is still possible to stabilize our debt … so long as we fix our fiscal policy’

Former New Hampshire Governor and former U.S. Senator Judd Gregg in a recent column notes our national debt keeps ticking up, more than doubling from $8 trillion 10 years ago to now more than $18 trillion, and the number will continue to climb with disastrous effect unless our political leaders take decisive action and start trimming the fat. The Hill has the commentary: If we keep on our current spending and deficit path, our debt will have tripled by the midpoint of the next decade. We will have a debt-to-GDP ratio by then that will be in the same ballpark as Greece, Spain and Iceland today. What does this all mean? No one really knows ...
