TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Tea Party first to cheer Cruz bid (quote by Jenny Beth) “He's a leader of the Tea Party in Washington, so it's not a surprise that Tea Party leaders are heaping praise on Sen. Ted Cruz's presidential announcement today. Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, was the first to embrace Cruz, noting his firm stands on conservative principles. "It's fitting that Sen. Ted Cruz is the first announced candidate in the GOP presidential field," Martin said in a statement.

News Briefing for Thursday, March 5 TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Obamacare protests resemble campaign rallies (Tea Party Patriots mentioned) “If the scene outside the Supreme Court on Wednesday resembled dueling campaign rallies — and it did — that was because many people's views on the hotly contested Obamacare case being argued inside fall along partisan lines. On one side were workers for conservative and free-market groups who were trying to outshout those on the other side from union and health care advocacy groups who, at one point, tried to sing over the pointed rhetoric coming from "Tea Party Patriots" and others…” http://www.usatoday.c...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Obama administration plans appeal (Quote by Jenny Beth) “…But it remains to be seen if the decision will provide a way out of a Homeland Security budget impasse that comes to a head on Feb. 27. While the court order remains under review, hard liners on illegal immigration have been pressuring congressional Republicans to permanently pull the funding from an executive order they see as illegal amnesty. Many see Hanen's order not as an exit ramp, but as a vise grip to exact concessions from Democrats. "We're hopeful this will be a wake-up call to Senate Democrats," said Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin. GOP ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Great Job So Far, Sen. McConnell. Now Cancel The Recess. “Politicians are flirting dangerously with a deadline for funding a critical government service. A recess looms. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. Republicans ran hard against executive amnesty for illegal aliens last fall, and were rewarded by voters with historic majorities. Rather than negotiate from a position of strength, GOP leadership opted to fund almost the entire government through Sept. 30, 2015 – in a lame duck session. The Department of Homeland Security was funded only through February 27, which brings us to the current impasse. Democrats – ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: WWE In DC: The Fake Border Fence Throw-Down (Quote by Kevin Broughton) “Obama’s immigration policies are unpopular. A January poll by The Washington Post said 89 percent of Republicans and 54 percent of independents oppose Obama’s amnesty. Tea party groups are also pushing to change McCaul’s bill. ”We want to tighten up this bill and we don’t think adding some or all of the [previously passed] language is an unreasonable expectation,” said Kevin Broughton, a spokesman for the Tea Party Patriots network. The network is asking its supporters to lobby their legislators for a better bill. ”We make it easy for them ...

The PC mentality is slowly eroding our rights to free speech and assembly, so we have encouraged all of our program guests to speak boldly and honestly about their policy solutions and innovations. Political correctness is incompatible with free speech; we opt not to surrender our ...

HEALTHCARE: ObamaCare's Exchange Subsidies Are So Essential, People Are Turning Them Down “According to U.S. News & World Report: “[B]rokers say they do hear from clients who are eligible for subsidies – which are based on household income and not assets – but want no part of them. Health officials have been boasting that 6.6 million people have enrolled in health coverage through state or federal marketplaces created under the Affordable Care Act, but in sharp contrast stands a small group of Americans who say they want nothing to do with the plans, even if they would save money. Their reasons vary: Some are protesting Obamacare, ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: The FEC’s Internet gag rule (Op-ed by Jenny Beth Martin and Matt Kibbe) Liberals don’t want Americans speaking truth to power “…Just as Williams felled the Liberty Tree to frustrate debate, Ms. Ravel wants to bring the political discourse of freedom-loving Americans under her agency’s heavy-lidded purview with an eye to cutting it off. To hear Ms. Ravel tell it, political speech in cyberspace is unduly influenced by “dark” forces that use blogs, news sites, video uplinks and information exchanges to “pollute” the political atmosphere and poison minds with too much communication. Or, to look at it from the ...
