Officials along the U.S.-Mexico border are bracing  for another surge of illegal minor crossings, according to news reports. Though the peak may be lower than what we saw in 2014, analysts still project 40,000 crossings by unaccompanied children – a rate that will still put 2015 in the record books.
While the surge will put more strain on our border patrol officials, it will no doubt also bring the immigration debate back to the forefront in Washington, D.C. Last year, it’s safe to say, Washington totally and utterly failed at dealing with the border crisis.
Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin has a new op-ed at The Hill about Speaker John Boehner’s petty attacks on conservatives in his own conference, and what it has to do with his stewardship of our tax dollars.
In the aftermath of the failed attempt to displace him in January, Boehner moved into recrimination mode with considerable dispatch. For his sin of allowing colleagues to place his name in nomination for speaker, Rep. Dan Webster (R-Fla.) was bounced from the Rules Committee, along with his Sunshine State colleague, Rich Nugent ...
From his first day in the Senate, Mike Lee has been one of the staunchest conservatives and defenders of the Constitution. Whether it’s personal liberty, economic freedom, taxes, or a debt-free future, Senator Lee has time and time again stood strong on conservative principles.
Today, we are so pleased to be able to support him in his latest endeavor. Sen. Lee just published a new book titled, “Our Lost Constitution.” The book tells the untold stories of specific provisions of our nation’s founding document – how they came to be, who proposed them, who opposed ...
It’s exciting to see another energetic, visionary conservative enter the contest for the 2016 nomination. Sen. Paul has been in the forefront of the liberty movement, and he will do a lot to shape the debate as the GOP field expands.
Rand Paul knows that the paths to prosperity and individual liberty are one and the same; to get there we need a transformational reduction of the role of government in Americans’ lives.
His popularity with younger Americans makes him an automatic factor in the grassroots movement, and Tea Party Patriots across the Republic look ...
Jenny Beth Martin at one of many meetings with Utah tea party leaders
There is perhaps no bigger champion of liberty than Republican Senator Mike Lee of Utah. He is a tireless critic of Obamacare and an extraordinary champion of Constitutional principles in the United States Senate.
That’s why Jenny Beth Martin and Tea Party Patriots’ team were excited to take part in a tour of the Beehive State and meet with local activists.
Utah has a unique political scene, because of the strong influence of the Mormon Church. Our activists on the ground are ...
You did it! Thanks to your efforts, the freedom of speech has been successfully defended in Georgia!
In the dark of night, Georgia’s big-spending Republican establishment brazenly schemed to trample on the First Amendment and silence conservative organizations.
In the Peach State, “bipartisanship” apparently means both parties team up to intimate grassroots activists, just like Lois Lerner and President Obama’s IRS.
Senate Bill 217, was supposed to deal with ethics fines for politicians was arrogantly amended by the George House of Representative’s Rules ...
A new investigation is underway  into allegations of workplace retaliation at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). A group of eight Republican Senators, led by Senate Judiciary Chair Chuck Grassley, say they’re aware of retaliation against DHS personnel who are “faithfully discharging the duties of the offices in which they serve.” In other words: personnel who aren’t pushing the amnesty agenda.
According to a letter the senators sent to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, there are “multiple allegations of targeting and retaliation against DHS personnel who ...
Last Saturday, March 28, Tea Party Patriots continued sponsoring the most recent Young Americans for Liberty convention at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. This two part, all-day event was a conference with free-market speakers and a training session for young patriots eager to become more effective in spreading the message of liberty.
They afternoon were Jeffrey Tucker from Liberty.me, Ty Hicks of YAL, and Azhar Majeed of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE).
In addition, on March 14, Tea Party Patriots sponsored the YAL state ...
Before turning anything over to Congressional investigators, Hillary Clinton wiped her email server clean, forever deleting emails that she sent during her tenure as Secretary of State. And just like that, the Hillary email scandal reached a whole new level.
Or did it?
Shockingly, Hillary has plenty of defenders in the Washington, D.C. bubble. But that should be part of the scandal, too.
The revelation came in response to a subpoena issued by the House Select Committee on Benghazi, which asked Clinton to turn over all emails and documents relating to the 2012 ...

The House and Senate are both out of session for the next two weeks.
LAST WEEK’S HOUSE FLOOR ACTION:
As happens every now and then, I need to begin this week’s update with a correction to something I said last week. Last week, when I was discussing House floor action the week before, I said the House had passed the Rules for both H.R. 1029, the EPA Science Advisory Board Act, and H.R. 1030, the Secret Science Reform Act. But I most specifically did NOT say the two bills had passed on the floor. ...
