Tea Party Patriots is pleased by the recent decision by the Federal Election Commission not to impose government control over political speech on the Internet. The Democrats at the FEC heard from our grassroots supporters, and they listened!
As Paul Bedard in Washington Examiner reports:
The Federal Election Commission, facing punishing criticism for suggesting that political activity on the Internet should be regulated, rejected talk of new rules Thursday, a victory for GOP commissioners who feared Democrats were target...
Jacksonville -- Republicans scored a big win in Florida this week. Big, that is, for anybody interested in beating Hillary Clinton next year.
You know the syllogism. Anybody who wants to beat Hillary in 2016 must win Florida and there are only two ways to win Florida – the Bush way and the Obama way. You can run up Republican margins in the north and pare down Democratic margins in the south. That’s how Bush won here in 2000 and 2004. Or you can run up Democratic margins in the south and pare down Republican margins in the north. That’s how Obama won in 2008 and ...
It’s not every day that Tea Party Patriots decides to join forces with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). But sometimes, there are issues that are too important to let partisan politics get in the way.
Today, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin has a joint op-ed in the Des Moines Register with Jeremy Rosen, Executive Director of the ACLU of Iowa about NSA spying and the Patriot Act.
Write Martin and Rosen:
Believe it or not, the Tea Party Patriots and the American Civil Liberties Union have some priorities in common. For one thing, we agree on ...
By the end of June, the Supreme Court will decide whether federal Obamacare subsidies are unconstitutional. Until then, the left will continue to run in circles trying to convince Americans that should the court side with Obamacare opponents, disaster and ruin are imminent. Here’s why you shouldn’t believe the hyperbole.
New research from the American Action Forum (AAF) shows just how much the majority of states will be better off if federal subsidies are struck down. According to Forbes.com:
AAF estimates that more than 11 million people would be liberated from ...
The House and Senate will both return to work tomorrow. The House will stay in session through Thursday, with no votes planned after 3 PM, and the Senate will stay in session through Friday.

LAST WEEK ON THE HOUSE FLOOR:
The House came back into session on Tuesday, and took up several bills on the Suspension Calendar. They also passed H.R. 1732, the Regulatory Integrity Protection Act, which deals with Clean Water Act overre...
Remember when the Obama Administration ignored a federal judge and implemented executive amnesty, approving new amnesty applications even after they were told to stop? Yeah, we do too. It wasn’t that long ago. Yet in the ultimate my-dog-ate-my-homework style of excuse, administration officials are blaming their disobedience on a technology glitch.
But it gets worse: according to the Washington Times, the Obama Administration is “now begging about 2,000 illegal immigrants to tear up their three-year work authorizations.”
Yeah, like that’s going to happen.
I heard it first at the barber shop. Then at the airport. And then from callers to a radio show. Folks like us seem to think we have a problem.
They think that we have too many candidates, and that the candidates will spend too much money tearing one another down, and that the process may produce, after a burst of fratricidal campaign spots, a mortally damaged nominee. This concern is unlike us. Folks like us tend to encourage dissent and welcome debate; we are the permanent insurgency and we thrive on the hurly-burly of controversy. But now that we’re up against the ...
New details have emerged about the total failure of the Department of Veterans Affairs to adequately provide care to our nation’s veterans. The details are part of a new, scathing 35-page report released by Jan R. Frye, deputy assistant secretary for acquisition and logistics.
In the report, Frye describes an agency overrun with “gross mismanagement,” and that makes a “mockery” of federal rules. It even went as far as describe the culture at the VA as one of “lawlessness and chaos.”

Citizens against Government Waste (CAGW) is out with its new “Pig Book” report for fiscal 2015, and the results aren’t what you think. Despite the fact that earmarks were banned back in 2011, Congress still found a way to come up with $4.2 billion worth of questionable earmarks.
Ok, so maybe the results are exactly what you’d think. Reports Fox News :
Among the earmarks the group identifies is a $15 million grant for the Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery Fund (PCSRF), established in 2000 to "reverse the declines of Pacific salmon and steelhead, supporting ...
