Biden Finds New Life

After Bernie Sanders took an early lead in the first 3 Democratic primaries, Joe Biden needed a victory in South Carolina to keep up his struggling campaign. So, Biden abandoned any hope of performing well in Nevada, and went straight to South Carolina to campaign – hoping to win the state he knows well. Going into the primary, it was considered a tossup. Biden had a lead in the polls, but with the momentum Bernie Sanders had going in, no one knew what the results would be. After the results started to flow in, it was clear – Biden was going to win South Carolina, and he was going to win big. NPR had this to say about the former VP: Fo...

Bernie’s Bad Math

During the South Carolina Democratic debate, Senator Bernie Sanders had his penchant for socialism exposed by the moderators and fellow debaters. Sanders’ plan to tax the American People out the nose to pay for his nightmare of a health system is the biggest reason why he should never be elected to higher office. According to Forbes, Bernie is constantly trying to come up with excuses as to how he’s going to pay for his ridiculous plan, yet despite all of his proposed taxes, there’s still a giant hole. Ben Ritz at Forbes reports: Sanders and his surrogates regularly claim that critics are wrong to focus on how much Medicare for All increa...

Impeachment Is Only Going To Hurt Democrats

Yesterday, House Democrats voted along party lines to send the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate. This historic abuse of impeachment is only going to hurt the Democrats in 2020, a fact they have refused to see. No one is going to feel the backlash of their mistaken vote for impeachment worse than the 31 Democrats representing districts that President Trump won in 2016. And, according to The Epoch Times, Trump knows this. President Donald Trump on Saturday passed along a warning against impeachment to the dozens of House Democrats who represent districts that he won in 2016. The 31 members of Congress “will have to answer to their ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: Kavanaugh fight ignites newfound Tea Party principles in GOP Establishment

The Kavanaugh confirmation process has turned into such a circus that the GOP establishment – the Republicans who are mixed up with the Democrats in Washington’s messy swamp – are even standing with conservatives and the Tea Party to defend Kavanaugh. The Hill has Jenny Beth’s commentary: By coincidence, it was just 10 years ago that the House of Representatives defeated the first attempt by the bipartisan political elites of Washington to take hundreds of billions of dollars collected from hardworking everyday Americans and bail out massive Wall Street banks. That action by our government officials in a Democratic controlled Congress ...

Hillary Clinton is the pot calling the kettle black

Hillary Clinton slams the use of “secret money” in politics and places blame on Republicans donors and – of course—President Trump. “We need to overturn Citizens United and get secret money out of our politics,” Clinton wrote after her essay “American Democracy Is in Crisis” published over the weekend. Funny, wasn’t her own political group using secret money to fund its opposition to Trump? The Daily Caller has the story: Clinton’s attack on “secret money” in politics comes as her own political group, Onward Together, uses secret money to fund its opposition to Trump.

Tea Party Patriots visit South Bend office of Senator Joe Donnelly

Local leader Kathy Maloney and other representatives of the St. Joe County Tea Party Patriots visited the offices of Senator Joe Donnelly (D-IN) on August 16, 2018 regarding the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The purpose of their visit was to thank Senator Donnelly for his willingness to meet with Judge Kavanaugh (unlike many of his fellow Senate Democrats), and to make sure that he knows that Indianans want him to vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh. Two other local groups participated, and after the office visit, the group held a pro-Kavanaugh sign-waving rally. This is where the power of the tea party has always come from – ...

IRS paid the price for tea party group targeting

A couple of weeks ago, a judge approved a $3.5 million settlement to tea party groups from the IRS after proving illegal and unwarranted targeting from the agency for political purposes. The decision for the IRS to settle shows that there's a price to be paid for targeting groups based on their viewpoints.  Fox News has the details: "It shows that when a government agency desires to target citizens based on their viewpoints, a price will be paid," said Edward Greim, a lawyer who led the class-action case in federal court in Cincinnati, according to the Washington Times. The tea party groups received a "sincere apology" from the IRS, and ...

The labor force has even more room to grow
