    Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund has endorsed Speaker Paul Ryan’s primary challenger businessman Paul Nehlen for the Republican nomination of Wisconsin’s 1st congressional district. “[I]t is only after careful consideration, a thorough review of the incumbent’s record, much discussion with our grassroots activists, and a careful vetting of the challenger that we can announce our endorsement of Paul Nehlen for the GOP nomination for Congress in Wisconsin’s 1st district,” Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin said in a statement. Martin said the decision to endorse Nehlen over Ryan was “not easy, nor something we take lightly” but...

    Truncated title. Full title: Exclusive — Rep. Ron DeSantis: Paul Ryan’s GOP Leadership Team Fears Beltway Media, Isn’t Holding IRS Accountable Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), a conservative running for the GOP nomination to replace Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) in the U.S. Senate in November, called out his own party’s leadership for its failure to hold the IRS accountable, years after the agency refused to comply with congressional investigations into its targeting of conservative groups. DeSantis is part of a small group of conservatives in the House pushing to impeach IRS commissioner John Koskinen. He tells Breitbart News that House Speaker...
  • Paul Ryan: 'We Don't Have' Votes to Pass a Budget(to the Democrats' liking)

    House Speaker Paul Ryan is on the verge of failing to pass a budget, a setback reportedly highlighting the same internal GOP divisions that bedeviled his predecessor. "You need the votes to pass a budget," the Wisconsin Republican told reporters Thursday, Politico reports. "We don’t have them right now." According to CNN, Ryan doesn't need a budget since the two-year fiscal deal Ohio GOP Rep. John Boehner negotiated before stepping down as House Speaker last year set overall federal spending level for the next fiscal year. "But the budget drama is a big political black eye for Ryan and his...

    Paul Ryan wants everyone to know he's no John Boehner. "I think I do it better," the House speaker told CNN during an interview this week, adding that his leadership style is different than his predecessor, whose resignation last year shocked Washington. "Not to knock John, but I spend more time with all of our members on a continual basis." Ryan, the GOP's vice presidential nominee in 2012, has won over conservatives by trying to showcase a more inclusive leadership style than Boehner. But he's still beset by the same internal divisions that led to Boehner's ouster -- as his...

    Boris Johnson was accused of 'dog whistle racism' and likened to right-wing 'Tea Party' politicians in the US this morning after his attack on the 'part-Kenyan' Barack Obama. The Mayor of London spoke out against the US President after he urged British voters to stay in the EU and mentioned his African ancestry as he criticised the decision to remove a bust of Sir Winston Churchill from the Oval Office shortly after Mr Obama entered the White House. Mr Johnson - who is favourite to succeed David Cameron as Prime Minister - suggested the President got rid of the statue...

    PJ Media ^ | April 21, 2015 | Tyler O'Neil
    On Thursday, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump took the liberal stance on transgender restroom access. Media outlets can call it "moderate" all they want, but it is inescapable that Trump defended biological men using women's restrooms. The Donald is not exactly hesitant to offend people, and transgressing political correctness has been one of the centerpieces of his campaign. He even declared in the past that he would protect Christians and social conservatives, but this acceptance of "transgender rights" may be a sign that he has started pandering to the "center" for the general election.Conservatives have long warned that Trump is unpredictable,...

    Violence has gotten a lot of attention in the 2016 presidential race — from the kicking and punching of protestors at Trump’s rallies to incitements of violence against Muslim refugees and Mexican immigrants to promises by various candidates to use overwhelming military force to destroy the Islamic State. But nonviolent resistance — that is, when unarmed civilians use a coordinated set of actions, such as protests, strikes, and noncooperation to directly confront opponents without harming or threatening to harm them — has actually been incredibly influential in this election. On both the left and the right, popular movements have brought...

    The IRS says it has stopped targeting the tea party — but three years later, the tax agency is still holding on to the sensitive information it pried from the conservative groups through invasive questions, and officials are even vowing to make the answers public. Groups caught up in the scandal say that is proof the targeting is continuing, and they want the IRS to expunge the information or, at the very least, to make sure it is never released. Obama administration officials insist they have stopped targeting but say the groups are at fault for following the misguided IRS...

Now, he wants a promotion to the Senate -- and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his allies want to stop that. Privately, McConnell has made clear to his confidantes that he wants to bolster the candidacy of Stutzman's chief GOP rival, Rep. Todd Young, and push him over-the-top in the May 3 primary, according to sources familiar with the conversations. Publicly, McConnell's super PAC has made Indiana the...

    A wealthy businessman with tea party ties confirmed Sunday that he is mounting a primary challenge to House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, saying that after donating to the Wisconsin Republican’s past campaigns he feels “betrayed” by the speaker on trade deals and immigration. The businessman, who is not yet revealing his identity, promised that his run will “shake up the establishment in a profound way,” according to a political consultant close to the prospective candidate. The emergence of a viable Republican challenger in Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District is the culmination of a monthslong recruitment effort by tea party activists who...

    Tea party activists are heartened by a federal appeals court ruling that strengthens their legal push against the Internal Revenue Service for alleged targeting in past election cycles. A three-judge panel of the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals chastised government foot-dragging while ordering the agency to give attorneys for tea party groups details on tax-exempt applicants. A U.S. district court judge in Cincinnati earlier this year certified the case as a class action. …

    The big question for Cruz is whether this baton pass does more damage than good among anti-establishment voters, even if it does boost movement conservatives. Newsmax’s Nick Sanchez believes that Jeb’s conservative track record in Florida will buffer the downside, and giving Cruz and the Tea Party access to the “establishment” donor base will pay dividends as well: 3. The Bush family has a national network of supporters — Money alone cannot win an election, and — as Cruz demonstrated right off the bat in the Iowa caucus — tapping into the network of bottom-up grassroots organizing can often ensure...

    A federal appeals court spanked the IRS Tuesday, saying it has taken laws designed to protect taxpayers from the government and turned them on their head, using them to try to protect the tax agency from the very tea party groups it targeted. The judges ordered the IRS to quickly turn over the full list of groups it targeted so that a class-action lawsuit, filed by the NorCal Tea Party Patriots, can proceed. The judges also accused the Justice Department lawyers, who are representing the IRS in the case, of acting in bad faith — compounding the initial targeting —...

    ... Warning: these will not raise your I.Q."Ted Cruz is a fake Christian who doesn't tithe enough, so I'm voting for Trump who rejects God's forgiveness.""I hate Marco Rubio because he was for amnesty, so I'm voting Trump who donated money to help most of those gang of 8 guys elected.""John Kasich is pro-Obamacare so he sucks, that's why I'm voting Trump, who's for single-payer healthcare.""I hate the GOP establishment always betraying conservatives so I'm voting Trump, who's to the Left of them all.""I hate low-information voters that's why I'm voting Trump even though I don't know where he stands...

    AL.Com ^ | February 27, 2016 | Congressman Mo Brooks
    By Congressman Mo Brooks, who represents the 5th congressional district of Alabama and serves as the Alabama State Chairman for Cruz for President. Many candidates have made their mark focusing on the Obama administration's past mistakes, and there are a lot of them. But now it's time to look to the future. As this campaign goes on, voters will begin to focus on who has the best plan for dramatic economic growth. It's clear that Ted Cruz's pro-growth policies are the best to increase employment and wages for Americans. The Obama administration likes to tout an unemployment rate hovering above...

    Free Beacon writer Stephen Gutowski tweeted on Friday that presidential candidate Donald Trump was "openly praising" Senate Minority leader Harry Reid "for attacking Romney over his tax returns when Romney was running against Obama." Trump's praise for Reid comes in the wake of criticism of Trump by Senator Ted Cruz during Thursday's GOP debate in Houston for "funding Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi." Via the Washington Post, in response to Trump's assertion that Cruz is not well-liked in D.C., Cruz responded: ...

    Weekly Standard ^ | February 26, 2016 | JOHN MCCORMACK
    After undercover videos released in July showed that Planned Parenthood was involved in the trafficking of aborted baby body parts, Donald Trump said he wasn't sure if the Planned Parenthood should lose all of its federal funding. He later shifted, saying: "I wouldn't do any funding as long as they are performing abortions." Trump has stuck to that line, but he has also offered a lot of aid and comfort to Planned Parenthood by arguing it does "wonderful things." At Thursday night's debate, Trump said that "millions and millions of women — cervical cancer, breast cancer — are helped by...

    Republican presidential candidate Texas Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) cr97% argued fellow GOP candidate Donald Trump can't beat Democratic candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton because he "agrees with Hillary Clinton and can't take it to her" during Thursday's GOP presidential debate on CNN. Cruz said, after stating he would release his tax forms, and that if Trump is being audited, it gives more of a reason for him to release his tax returns, because the voters should know if there is fraud, "[I]n the last 10 polls on Real Clear Politics he's [Trump's] lost to Hillary on eight...

    Breitbart ^ | February 26, 2016 | JOHN NOLTE
    During Thursday night's debate in Houston, Texas, Donald Trump denied having ever supported the Obama administration's efforts to remove Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi from power. The record on this, however, is clear. In the run-up to what would be a massive foreign policy debacle (with Hillary Clinton as its chief architect), the Republican frontrunner vocally supported American intervention to topple the dictator. From the debate: ...

    Regarding tonight's debate, it was a good night for both Cruz and Rubio because it helped them change the narrative. Cruz has had a bad couple of weeks in that department, but tonight should guarantee he wins Texas and a lot of the delegates there. And frankly that's more important to him than winning close states elsewhere and here's why -- the proportional delegate allocation. For example, in 2012 Santorum won 11 states but only 245 delegates total, or just about 80 more than Ron Paul. The game is delegates, not states (see my previous post on this today). Cruz...

    Ted Cruz went after Donald Trump's repeated praising of the Planned Parenthood abortion business last night during the Republican presidential debate. Cruz essentially said pro-life voters shouldn't support Trump because "he thinks Planned Parenthood is wonderful." As LifeNews reported, Trump stood firm in his defense of Planned Parenthood's very few services other than abortion during Thursday night's CNN Republican debate...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz kept attacking his rival Donald Trump after they faced off onstage at CNN's Republican presidential debate on Thursday night. In an extended interview on Fox News, Cruz went after the Republican frontrunner. "I think that what became very clear is that Donald Trump is not the right candidate to go head-to-head with Hillary Clinton in November," Cruz said. "That on policy issue after policy issue, his position is identical to Hillary." Cruz cast Trump's policies as in line with those of "liberal Democrats." Trump has previously called himself a Democrat before running for the Republican presidential...

    Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) cr96% explains why he’s endorsing Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)cr97%, telling Breitbart News Daily host Stephen K. Bannon Cruz consistently fought to stop amnesty during his freshman Senate term. "Everything Ted did... was to slow down [Gang of Eight] and hopefully give us a chance to stop the bill that Rubio was now the face of. So that made it easier to endorse Ted. But, you know, Ted's integrity -- you may disagree with him, you may dislike him -- but his integrity was his strength. When you're in the political game, what you've got...
