Ernest Istook on free speech, and the government’s attempt to regulate the internet

Former Congressman and current Tea Party Patriots board member Ernest Istook published a new op-ed in the Washington Times this week about the Obama Administration’s attempt to regulate the internet, and by extension, free speech. Writes Istook: Government never admits that it wants to control you. Instead, it claims it wants to protect you. But if the bureaucrats control what you say, they control what you know. And if they control what you know, they control what you do. So you get sucked into The Blob. One example is the Federal Election Commission. It’s proposed that we allow the FEC to regulate political speech on the Internet. ...

Ernest Istook on Obama’s new hotline for illegal immigrants

On his latest podcast episode, Tea Party Patriots board member and former conservative Rep. Ernest Istook offers his insights on news reports that the Obama Administration has set up a hotline for illegal immigrants who believe their rights under Obama’s amnesty program are being violated. Earlier this week, the Washington Times reported [1]: In a memo announcing the customer complaint line, U.S. Customs and Border Protection asked illegal immigrants to “please tell us about your experience” if they believe they were treated “contrary to the new DHS enforcement priorities.” The department alerted “stakeholders” last week of three ...

Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government – Yaron Brook and Don Watkins “Free Market Revolution will raise the ire of every statist, socialist and crony capitalist.

The IRS never even looked for those Lerner emails

There’s a new bombshell in the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) targeting scandal. At this point, nothing is quite that surprising, although this latest revelation might just take the cake. Remember when the IRS said last June that emails belonging to ex-official Lois Lerner were lost in a hard drive crash? Well, according to information from the organization Judicial Watch[1], the IRS hasn’t even bothered to search for the supposedly missing emails. Basically, the agency is just trying to run out the clock in the scandal. According to Judicial Watch, their attorneys reviewed IRS court filings and documents and concluded that the agency “did ...

Jenny Beth Martin: Obama’s game of high-stakes postelection policy poker

President Obama has been largely mum on details for his agenda after the 2014 Midterm Election. But that doesn’t mean Americans don’t know what to expect. In a new op-ed for The Washington Times, Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin writes that even though President Obama keeps hidden details about his priorities, from Eric Holder’s replacement as Attorney General to immigration reform, the president’s past leaves little to the imagination. “When it comes to his plans for the next two years, though,” writes Martin, “Mr. Obama has provided the American people with plenty of ‘tells,’ which betray the strength or weaknes...

Obamacare’s many broken promises

Remember all those times the Left told us we needed the Affordable Care Act so it would reduce health care costs in America? Yeah, we do too. True to form, their predictions didn’t exactly pan out. A new study shows [1] that average insurance policy rates skyrocketed, in some cases by as much as 78 percent after Obamacare was implemented. In the sought-after 23 year-old demographic, rates rose the most on average. Men in that age group saw increases of 78.2 percent, while women got a 44.9 percent increase. It’s not exactly surprising. While the Left would rather we all ignore it when rates go up and policies get cancelled, there’s no ...
