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. It was hosted Sharonville Convention Center in northern Hamilton County, not far from the I.R.S. office which was initially blamed for President Obama and Lois Lerner’s criminal targeting of Tea Party Patriots.
Ann Becker, President of the Cincinnati Tea Party, did an extraordinary job organizing the rally. As she told The Cincinnati Enquirer, “Southwest Ohio ...
The Young Americans for Liberty state conventions continued, which Tea Party Patriots are proud to sponsor.
This time, approximately 100 students, along with a few older activists, traveled across the Buckeye state and gathered at the University of Cincinnati on April 11 to learn how liberty activists can successfully promote their message of liberty government.
After a morning of training from Chris Doss of the Leadership Institute, the attendees were excited to hear from Rep. Thomas Massie (R-WV). Massie, who of the few champions for freedom in Washington, D.C., ...

On April 15, Tea Party Patriots was honored to have two tax-fighting conservatives on our Tax Day Tele Townhall: Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH).
Except for President Obama, no one looks forward to Tax Day. Shamefully, the tax code has grown into a 70,000+ page monster, the IRS has been used as a weapon against Americans for their political and religious beliefs, and politicians use it to hide favoritism for special interest groups in the form of tax credits. On our tele townhall, ...
New emails obtained by Judicial Watch shine even more light on the depth of the IRS targeting scandal. As much as the left would like for America to be convinced the scandal is over, it is far from it.
Among the new revelations is a February 2012 email in which Lois Lerner, then head of the IRS’ Exempt Organizations ranch, asked for a new program to be set up that would “put together some training to help [IRS staffers] understand the potential pitfalls” of giving away too much information to Congress.
Another 2013 email reveals that Lerner said she is willing ...
"As we mark the Sixth Anniversary of our original Tax Day rallies, it’s gratifying to see yet another candidate who shares tea party values enter the 2016 presidential race. We have come a long way, in six years, when three tea party senators are major players in the presidential race.
"Sen. Rubio’s personal story inspires, as does his commitment to personal freedom, economic freedom and a debt-free future.
"Marco Rubio’s candidacy and the 2016 election are about the future, not the past. He knows first-hand that prosperity comes not from a government ...

Officials along the U.S.-Mexico border are bracing  for another surge of illegal minor crossings, according to news reports. Though the peak may be lower than what we saw in 2014, analysts still project 40,000 crossings by unaccompanied children – a rate that will still put 2015 in the record books.
While the surge will put more strain on our border patrol officials, it will no doubt also bring the immigration debate back to the forefront in Washington, D.C. Last year, it’s safe to say, Washington totally and utterly failed at dealing with the border crisis.
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.
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 ...
From his first day in the Senate, Mike Lee has been one of the staunchest conservatives and defenders of the Constitution. Whether it’s personal liberty, economic freedom, taxes, or a debt-free future, Senator Lee has time and time again stood strong on conservative principles.
Today, we are so pleased to be able to support him in his latest endeavor. Sen. Lee just published a new book titled, “Our Lost Constitution.” The book tells the untold stories of specific provisions of our nation’s founding document – how they came to be, who proposed them, who opposed ...
