Gingrich: The U.S. is losing the war with radical Islamists

At the Iowa Freedom Summit, which Tea Party Patriots helped sponsor, former Speaker of the House and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich had some frank words about the need to finally acknowledge who the U.S.’s “real enemies are.” “There is one common pattern occurring everywhere across the planet,” said Gingrich, “and that is radical Islamists who hate our civilization, are prepared to cut off our heads, and are determined to impose their religion by force.” The whole speech is about 20 minutes, but it’s definitely worth a watch.

Fiscal cliff legislation taxes the rich – unless they have buddies in Congress

In the fiscal cliff fight, proponents of big government said they wanted to raise taxes on the wealthy for purposes of deficit reduction and “fairness.” As the dust settles, we see it’s anything but fair. First, as Media Research Center’s Dan Joseph noted on Facebook, the deficit reduction aspects of taxing the “rich” are bogus, though there is some sliver of good news to be seen: So, as was expected, the Democrats will get tax hikes, the SOLE purpose of which are to stick it to the "wealthy" while making everyone else FEEL better about having STUCK it to them. One development that I find fascinating, however, was how the Democrats ...

Gingrich/Romney race not a failure of Tea Party

By Mark Petrina Jay Bookman published a blog claiming a Gingrich/Romney race represents failure of the tea party because they are both establishment politicians. Bookman is wrong Herman Cain was a Tea Party favorite who dropped out because of the dirty tricks of a corrupt, partisan media . Romney is a contender because the "Establishment" is still very powerful. The media is very powerful, but despises the Tea Party, so we are fighting on lots of fronts. Gingrich, regardless of his baggage, is talking the Tea Party game more effectively and strongly than anybody else. He is the most aggressive anti-Obama, and has lots of appealing ideas. That ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Tea Party's Jenny Beth Martin Sizes Up Fiorina, Carson, Huckabee “With three new entrants into the Republican presidential field this week, Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin gave her thoughts to Newsmax TV on Monday about how each would fare with the tea party wing. "Any of them are going to be better than what we will get with Hillary Clinton," Martin said on "Newsmax Prime."  "She is from the past, and it's time for someone who's going to be looking towards the future." If former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina wins the nomination, it will allow for a focus on economic issues, which are important to the tea ...

HEALTHCARE: Obamacare exchanges are not cheap to build or run “In its next Obamacare-related decision, the Supreme Court will decide whether employers in states that chose not to establish their own Obamacare exchanges can be forced to pay penalties for not offering insurance the government deems acceptable. The case is somewhat complicated and based on textual questions and legislative history. But if the court rules that the phrase "established by the state" means what it looks like it means, this will bring a small dose of chaos to up to 37 states that now rely on the federal exchange — the infamoushealthcare.gov. A majority of those who ...

HEALTHCARE: As States Expand Medicaid, Unpaid Hospital Bills Disappear “With more states expanding Medicaid coverage under the Affordable Care Act, hospital operators are reporting fewer unpaid medical bills and falling charity and uncompensated care expenses. Under the health law, states have the option to expand Medicaid at little cost to the states. And more are doing so with Montana Gov. Steve Bullock last week signing a bipartisan legislation to expand Medicaid under the health law to more than 70,000 people. This, coupled by an improving economy, is boosting revenues for hospital companies like Community Health Systems (CYH), Tenet Healthc...

HEALTHCARE: Nearly half of Obamacare exchanges are struggling over their future “Nearly half of the 17 insurance marketplaces set up by the states and the District under President Obama’s health law are struggling financially, presenting state officials with an unexpected and serious challenge five years after the passage of the landmark Affordable Care Act. Many of the online exchanges are wrestling with surging costs, especially for balky technology and expensive customer-call centers — and tepid enrollment numbers.
