Hillary Loses First Primary of 2016

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 2012. In 2012, those pared-down GOP margins in north Florida played a big part ...

Scathing new report lists atrocities inside VA

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.” The Washington Post has more [1]: “Doors are swung wide open for fraud, waste and abuse,” he writes in the March memo, which was obtained by The ...

Tax Day Rally in Cincinnati, Ohio!

On April 15, Americans scrambled to file their tax returns and send too much money to Washington, D.C. Just after the post offices closed, more than 300 patriots attended the Cincinnati Tea Party Tax Day event.

And we're working with our ...

Tea Party Patriots’ Jenny Beth Martin in The Hill

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. Writes Martin: 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 (R-Fla.). Texan Randy Weber (R) had his name removed as a sponsor of legislation for ...

Hillary’s Upward Failure

JACKSONVILLE – We have only nineteen months until Election Day. That’s a blink of an eye in the sweep of history, but a long, hard slog in a political campaign. It’s time to get to work. Our job between now and November 8, 2016 is to identify, nominate and elect a candidate who can a) defeat Hillary Clinton and b) serve as an effective, courageous and reliably conservative President. First things first. Will Hillary run? Rational analysis says no. She’s old, she’s tired and she gives every evidence of being an unhappy warrior. To her, those nineteen months may seem like nineteen years. Here she hasn’t even announced her candidacy and ...

Hillary’s email server “wiped clean”

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 terrorist attack. When Clinton World finally responded to the subpoena, their answer ...
