Now that the Obama Administration has had to stop implementing the president’s unconstitutional amnesty program, some sunlight is finally being shined on just how far the White House went to institutionalize amnesty. Indeed, according to a new Washington Post report, legal setbacks have halted Obama & Co.’s “intensive preparations” to reward illegal immigrants with amnesty, even while “community organizers” move forward with their arrangements.
For starters, the Department of Homeland Security halted plans to hire another 3,100 employees. Which means ...
The House will come back on Tuesday, with no votes scheduled before 6:30 PM. They’ll stay in until Friday, when the last vote will take place no later than 3 PM.

LAST WEEK ON THE HOUSE FLOOR:
The House started the week on Monday, considering eight bills on the Suspension Calendar. They included:
R. 1493, Protect and Preserve International Cultural Property Act, as amended
802, Girls Count ...
He may well be the most influential conservative you don’t know.
History records that on the day he was born – the day after Independence Day, 1940 – a flotilla of British warships left England, dodging Nazi submarines in the north Atlantic, carrying almost $2 billion in gold bullion destined for safekeeping in the Bank of Canada. We can find no evidence that news of his birth had anything to do with Churchill’s decision to send gold abroad, but, well, a good scheme wouldn’t leave obvious clues like that, would it?
Graduated from a Yale class that included ...
Tuesday afternoon Cleta Mitchell, attorney for Tea Party Patriots, testified before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. The topic of the Committee hearing was “Ensuring transparency through the Freedom of Information Act”. Unfortunately, in Tea Party Patriots’ experience, federal agencies have been anything but transparent. In her testimony, Ms. Mitchell outlined Tea Party Patriots’ experience with a federal government that is unresponsive, uncoordinated, and as Ms. Mitchell put it, “has evidenced a pattern of stealth and arrogant disregard ...
Tea Party Defeats Sen. McConnell for Second Time This Week
Atlanta, GA - Tea Party Patriots CEO Jenny Beth Martin and the American people declared victory this afternoon, after the Senate rejected Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's attempts to weaken and, ultimately, defeat the USA FREEDOM Act as passed by the House.
After rejecting the Majority Leader's desire to renew the PATRIOT Act earlier this week, today's Senate action to maintain the USA FREEDOM Act in its original form was icing on the cake.
"The American people have spoken: Security and freedom do NOT have ...
It should go without saying that members of Congress should have to abide by the same laws the rest of us do. If a piece of legislation is good enough for the people, it should be good enough for our elected officials. That is, unless it’s Obamacare.
While Americans were forced to live under the disaster that is Obamacare, lawmakers on Capitol Hill were given a pass – thanks to a nice little exemption they wrote for themselves. As Tea Party Patriots, we won’t take this double standard any longer. So on Wednesday, June 17, we, along with our supporters, will be ...
Last night on the Senate floor,  Sen. Rand Paul successfully pushed off the reauthorization of the NSA spying program and its bulk collection of phone records. Thanks to Paul’s courageous stance, Congress will finally be forced to reconcile Americans’ right to privacy and freedom from government intrusion, and big brother spying programs in the of name of national security.
Even if the delay is only temporary, it’s a worthy first step toward forcing a larger conversation about big government spying. What’s more, last night’s display of total unity in favor ...
The American people strongly objected to the President’s health care overhaul back in 2010. Congress ignored our objections and passed the bill into law without even taking the time to read it or understand the implications. Now, more than five years later, Americans are suffering from the law’s provisions. Millions of Americans have experienced a loss of health insurance, premium increases, and new taxes and regulations. Tea Party Patriots has steadfastly opposed the law because of all of its harmful effects.
The law's primary enforcement mechanisms come through ...
As usual, the Obama Administration is issuing dire warnings about what will supposedly happen if the U.S. government stops spying on its citizens. The clock runs out on the Patriot Act Sunday night, which only leaves them a few more days to alarm people.
Also as usual, the Obama Administration is on the wrong side of the American people on the issue. According to a recent survey  by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), 60 percent of Americans want to see changes made to the post-9/11 national security law. Another 82 percent of Americans were at least “some...
Now that everyone is back to their normal routines after the long Memorial Day weekend, I wanted to give you a recap of what happened last week and over the weekend in regards to the Patriot Act.
Many of you were likely traveling or spending time with loved ones to remember those who served and paid the ultimate price protecting our freedoms. We recognize that generations of Americans have been so selfless that they have given their lives to ensure our liberty.
I happened to be in Washington, DC, last Wednesday when Senator Rand Paul (KY) began his filibuster of the ...
