  • War: Chamber of Commerce gearing up to take out conservative incumbents in the House next year

    This strategy isnít entirely new. They started talking about targeting tea partiers in primaries in late 2013 and followed through in last yearís midterms... The difference last year was that they stuck to open seats rather than going after incumbents. Evidently theyíve decided now that ďprogressĒ towards the dream of renewing the Ex-Im bank and passing a gigantic amnesty ensuring all the cheap legal labor they could possibly want isnít happening fast enough. Itís simply not sufficient to fill vacancies in the House with corporatist business-class Republicans. To move their agenda, they need to start replacing some of the people...

    Vladimir Putin, tired of being labeled as a "bully" by media left and right, held a press conference in the Kremlin earlier today, offering a completely new angle to his case for the seizure of the Crimean Peninsula and the possible invasion of Ukraine: the presence of a Tea Party element at the Maidan in Kiev. "The Ukrainian nationalists have historically been a grave threat to peace in Eastern Europe, indeed, the whole planet and possibly the solar system," the Russian President said through an interpreter. "They were likened to Nazis by the previous Soviet government, which was universally esteemed...

    This is going to be an easy one. Phones are jammed on the Hill. We are standing behind the tea party Republicans and to show our support we are mailing envelopes to President Obama and Harry Reid with labels of tea bags taped to the outside of the envelopes. When we sent tea bags before there was a problem with the string and bag that they might be bombs. This is harmless, just an empty envelope with a tea bag label taped to it. Makes a statement. They should receive hundreds if not millions. Obama keeps wanting to go in...

    The American Thinker ^ | April 04, 2011 | Lee Cary
    We Americans live in a political era when it's reasonable, perhaps even prudent, to consider the unthinkable. Before the election of Barack Obama, most Americans were unable, or unwilling, to consider what his campaign promise to "fundamentally transform" the nation might mean. Before his election, those who used the word "socialism" to refer to his intentions were chided for being too extreme. (A longtime friend of mine said I'd "gone over the edge" in using such language.) Not until Newsweek published a February 2009 article entitled "We Are All Socialists Now" did the word become widely acceptable, if used benignly....

    The anti-government ďthrow-the-bums-outĒ crowds have had their chance to speak out on how to curtail the deficit and what to do with those hated entitlements that are the antithesis of the America they pine for. A recent WSJ/NBC News poll provided a glimpse of just how dependent on big government entitlements Americans have becomeĖeven among the Tea Party. Not that this should be a surprise to anyone watching the slow shift of the American mindset from citizen, to consumer, to ward of the State over the past century. According to the Wall Street Journal who co-sponsored the poll, ďAmericans across...

    One thing Hollywood knows how to do is to give audi ences a "cheer moment" when the underdog finally turns on his adversaries -- Rocky's first, bone-crushing left hook against Apollo Creed, for example. As the 112th Congress convenes next week, that's what many Americans will be expecting from the 63 new Republican House members and five new Republican senators. The first thing they're going to have to rock back on its heels is ObamaCare. Tea Partiers, start your engines. The great battle for the soul and future of America is about to begin. The first battlefield will be the...

    I'm still in shock from reading this news on Stereogum about primitivist drummer and doll-voiced Velvet, Moe Tucker being a Tea Party fanatic. Say it ain't so Moe. It's like finding out that Henry Rollins has just been wearing a fake muscle suit all these years and he's really a skinny, mild-mannered pushover. Moe's strayed a long way off from being in a band at center of 1960's and 70's American counter culture. She's best known for her unrelenting, tribal drumming style of the time -- opting to take her bass drum, turn it upright and pound away on it...

    Two new spots here. The second is a remake of ó and vast improvement upon ó this trainwreck, cutting the running time by two thirds and employing a lighter touch to make the write-in lesson seem less pedantic. The first is the buzzworthy one, though, basically accusing Joe Miller of being a prop of those highfalutin California city slickers in the tea party. Quickie fact check: Miller was born in Kansas and moved to Alaska 16 years ago because the thought of working in a big east coast law firm wasnít as enticing as living in the great outdoors. For...
  • Left-wing Black Activist Acknowledges Race Attacks on Tea Party Are Bogus But 'Effective'

    What will it take for the media to acknowledge that the Tea Party is not a racist movement, and that liberals have smeared it as such in a naked politicization of race relations? How about a lefty activist admitting just that. UPenn professor Mary Frances Berry, a leader of the "far-left black political scene," as NB Executive Editor Matt Sheffield wrote,  penned this astonishing email to Politico, published on July 20: Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. There is no evidence that tea party adherents are any...

    The term "tea-bagger" is like uttering the "n" word, some say. Though he aspires to promote civility, evidence has surfaced that President Obama has added "tea-bagger" to his public lexicon, though it's considered a cheap and tawdry insult by "tea party" activists. Watchdogs at Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) barked when they saw the proof, tucked in a sneak peak of Newsweek columnist Jonathan Alter's new book, "The Promise: President Obama, Year One," to be released May 18. "This remark is the equivalent of using the 'n' word. It shows contempt for middle America, expressed knowingly, contemptuously, on purpose, and...

    Three days after he decried the lack of civility in American politics, President Obama is quoted in a new book about his presidency referring to the Tea Party movement using a derogatory term with sexual connotations. In Jonathan Alterís ďThe Promise: President Obama, Year One,Ē President Obama is quoted in an interview saying that the unanimous vote of House Republicans vote against the stimulus bills ďset the tenor for the whole year ... That helped to create the tea-baggers and empowered that whole wing of the Republican Party to where it now controls the agenda for the Republicans.Ē Tea Party...

    It's doesn't fit the narrative coming from FoxNews where Tea Party rallies are the top story in politics this year, but Log Cabin Republicans have shown new influence in Utah politics in ways never seen before. At a recent debate, the organization hosted six of eight Republican senate candidates--or their representatives--including incumbent Bob Bennett, an impressive feat for a Utah organization that focuses on queer issues. To avoid overestimating their impact, however, note that the organization will not issue a formal endorsement of any candidate for fear that it would hurt rather than help the endorsed candidate. Nevertheless, 2010 may...

    In his 1956 story, published in Fantastic Universe Magazine, science fiction writer Phillip K. Dick ( envisioned a dystopian future in which murders were prevented before they happened. Three mutant humans, known as ďprecogs,Ē see the murders in the future and warn the police. The police then arrive in SWAT Teams and take-away the bewildered ďpre-murderer,Ē thus stopping the murder in question and creating a changed timeline (the film 2002 version of the story changes many of the originalís details). Yet in another example of life imitating fiction, the U.S. Congress and President Obama are running full-bore to force ďprecrime...

    House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer said Thursday he and Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a mistake when they called "tea party" participants "un-American" last year. "That was not a good phrase, not a good use of language, it was not correct," Mr. Hoyer, Maryland Democrat, said, adding that he did not see anything wrong with vigorous debating of philosophies. Mr. Hoyer and Mrs. Pelosi wrote an op-ed article... "Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American," the two wrote. The charge became a rallying cry for tea partiers.

    Why is Fox pushing so hard this AM to marginalize dissenting Americans? Hemmer/MacCullum pushing the OK City Bombing. Over the past 15 years I only remember blips about memorial ceremonies. Same with 9-11 memorial services. Now all of a sudden the msm is trying to propagandize the dissent of Today with the Islamofascist terrorist and the McVeigh bombing. Everyone involved with the TPM should voice their outrage at the obvious attempt to slander the TPM.

    Good thing Tony Blankley pushed back on CNN. Lord knows Wolf of the Clinton New Network wouldnít. And in truth I find what the President had to say was disgusting too. As I have said before, itís ďby any means necessaryĒ with this crowd. First thereís Clinton skillfully trying to leave an impression that Republicans and talk show hosts are responsible for whipping Tea Party folk into a dangerous frenzy Ö after all, he points out, all of the threats are coming from conservatives toward Democrats. Not to mention racists.
