This week, the GOP-controlled Congress took one step closer to repealing Obamacare for good. So in the spirit of giving credit where credit is due, we’re cautiously applauding our lawmakers today.
According to news reports, , the Senate managed to pass a budget that sets the stage for cutting $4.3 trillion in benefit programs over the next decade – including dissolving Obamacare. The passage sets the stage for a repeal of Obamacare through a procedural shortcut called reconciliation.
At this point the Senate and the House have until mid-April to resolve ...
TEA PARTY PATRIOTS:
The GOP quandary: How far right without falling over the edge?
“…Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who is at or near the top of most early polls among Republicans, likes to boast how he stuck to conservative principles to win statewide office three times in a centrist state. “To win the center, you don’t have to go to the center, you have to lead,” he said last week during a Tea Party Patriots telephone town hall. Tea party loyalists are still somewhat wary of Walker, though, because of past positions on immigration and government support for ...
Suppose a top official at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) showed special treatment toward requests from Democratic officials. And suppose that special treatment involved help with tricky immigration matters for the well-connected friends of these Democratic officials. Suppose all this happened and it violated a number of ethics rules.
You’d expect the White House to come out against the practice pretty hard, right? Wrong.
During a White House press briefing on Wednesday, Press Secretary Josh Earnest called the offending DHS official – Alejandro Mayorkas ...
This past Sunday we were joined by Congressmen Jim Jordan (OH) and Mark Meadows (NC) to discuss the current budget proposal moving through the House of Representatives. We wanted to give you access to this otherwise exclusive call. Listen to the recording below.

The Department of Homeland Security (emphasis on the worlds “homeland” and “security”) is having a hard time living up to its name. According to new documents obtained by Judicial Watch,  DHS released roughly 166,000 criminal illegal immigrants into the U.S. as of April 2014. These criminals include, but are not limited to, rapists, murders and kidnappers.
And releasing them is supposed to secure our homeland how, exactly?
This information, it should be noted, comes after a lengthy legal back-and-forth. In July 2014, Judicial Watch was forced to file a ...
Five years ago today, without a single Republican vote, Congress rammed the unconstitutional Protection and Affordable Care Act into law. We know it as “Obamacare.”
As former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) one famously said, “[W]e have to pass [Obamacare], so that you can find out what is in it.” Five years later, we now know why this massive overhaul of America’s already imperfect healthcare system was rushed through at rapid speed before the public could scrutinize the details.
Despite President Barack Obama’s promises that if you liked your plan, ...
Listen to the podcast here: CALENDAR:
The House returns tomorrow, with first votes expected no earlier than 6:30 PM, and will be in session through Thursday, with the last votes expected no later than 3 PM.
The Senate will return to work tomorrow, with the first vote taking place at 5:30 PM. They will be in session through Friday.
At that point, both Houses will break for the Easter Recess, and they’ll be gone for the first two weeks of April. So don’t be surprised if the Thursday recess slips in the House, in case they can’t get the budget done the way they ...
It’s fitting that Sen. Ted Cruz will be the first announced candidate in the GOP presidential field. In his two short years in the Senate, he has yielded to no one in championing the values of personal freedom, economic freedom and a debt-free future. As the field expands, we will look forward to seeing how the other candidates advance the liberty movement and put forward conservative solutions to undoing the mess our ‘transformational’ president has made of our Republic.

In Iowa on St. Patrick’s Day, instead of chasing snakes out of Ireland, patriots strategized how to chase establishment candidates out of Washington, D.C.
Hosted by the Council Bluffs (Iowa) Tea Party at the local library, more than 40 patriots heard presentations from Tea Party Patriots, Iowa Grassroots Coalition, and True the Vote about how movement conservatives can pick the best candidate.
As Iowa hosts the “First-in-the-Nation” Presidential Primary, ...
