Gov. Walker has for years been a leading conservative voice outside the D.C. bubble. His track record is one of remarkable dedication to smaller government and individual freedom. He matches his principled ...
Think you’ve seen it all with government secrecy? Think again! A new report from the Associated Press reveals that the Obama Administration has set a new record for denying Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests outright or censoring documents. Apparently, you can ask, but the government won’t tell!
The administration also took longer to turn over documents when it did comply, and claimed more often that it just couldn’t find certain documents. Here’s more from the AP analysis 
It also acknowledged in nearly 1 in 3 cases that its initial decisions to ...
Tuesday night was an exciting time in Belton as Tea Party Patriot’s Maria Acosta addressed Central Texas Tea Party, with more than 50 patriots filling the beautiful Magnolia House at the Cathedral Oaks Event Center.
Maria explained to the freedom-loving crowd what battles are taking place in Congress taking place right now, which deserve extra attention - such as the Justice for Victims of Human Trafficking Act (S.178), which Democrats are delaying for political reasons.
In addition, activists debated the merits of Senator Tom Cotton's (R-AK) joint letter to Iran's ...
Watchdog.org has a bombshell investigation about a Veterans Affairs whistleblower who found himself the center of an investigation after he tried to alert his superiors to wrongdoing.
The Overton Brooks VA in Shreveport, LA, had significant problems, including a waiting list of 2,700. It also seems that as many as 37 of those veterans may have died while waiting for care. The whistleblower, Shea Wilkes, first reported the problems in May 2013, a full year before the problems at the Phoenix VA surfaced.
But, here’s how Wilkes describes the retaliation  that ...
Rep. Trey Gowdy, who’s been leading the Congressional investigation into the Benghazi attack, said over the weekend  that he’s not afraid to call Hillary Clinton back for questioning. As Secretary of State, we now know, Clinton conducted her business on a private email server, using it to send and store government correspondence. That correspondence could provide pivotal clues into what happened the night of the terrorist attack and the following days, whether Clinton wants it to or not.
“I think an eminently reasonable alternative is for her to turn over that ...

Atlanta – As the 2016 presidential field begins to take shape, Tea Party Patriots (TPP) will hear from a likely candidate whose star is on the rise when Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker joins them for a national Tele-Town hall meeting Monday.
“Over the last four years, all Scott Walker does is win,” TPP President Jenny Beth Martin said. “Any Republican who can win three elections in four years – in a blue state – will be a force in 2016, and we look forward to hearing his conservative vision for a post-Obama America.”

The results are in ,and they’re not surprising. A new survey shows that Americans’ trust in government is at all-time lows. Only 11 percent, for example, have any confidence in the executive branch.
The survey’s findings underline the latest scandal enveloping Washington: Hillary Clinton’s private emails. Keep in mind this is far from a political scandal. Rather, it cuts to the heart of everything that’s wrong with the DC elite: the absolute avoidance of accountability and the unwillingness to abide by the same set of rules imposed on average Americans.
