    Don't write it off just yet, at it continues to add candidates to this year's mix. WASHINGTON -- All is bleak. All is woe! I speak of the Tea Party movement, the movement of 2009 and 2010 that was the hot news story of those years, and led to the Republican rout of the Democrats in 2010. Now the Tea Party movement is according to reports in the media in decline. Was it extremist? Was it racist? Distinguished Americans like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton said it was. Yet their evidence when it came under objective scrutiny kept falling apart,...

    A major Tea Party rally in Massachusetts will be held on the historic Boston Common this Sunday, April 15, from 1-4 pm. It will include both national and local speakers including many pro-family advocates such as Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Brian Camenker of MassResistance, well-known pro-family writer Don Feder, and Rev. Scott Lively. Other good advocates include Rabbi Jonathan Housman and Rev. Garrett Lear. In an outrageous move, a small of group of fiscal-conservative Tea Party leaders has begun a vicious campaign to subvert Sunday's Patriots Day Tea Party on the Boston Common because three of the speakers - Scott...

    The news came today, about 1:00 PM Central Time, that Rick Santorum is suspending his bid for the Republican nomination for President. (The reader should be reminded of the health issues of the Santorums’ daughter Bella, and is urged to remember the family in prayer.) Reaction was mixed. “At last,” some said, “we have all the deadwood and pretenders cleared out of the way (Newt and Ron Paul are too insignificant to matter, right?) and we can rally around the sensible choice. Go Romney!” Others reached for the Hemlock: “Oh, no, the last good Christian man standing is gone! We...

No, we're going to WIN.</p> <p>First item of business, get invovlved in the Tea Party movement, and give D.C. a whole new influx of conservatives in Congress similar in size and importance to that of the last election - thereby blocking any of Obamas chances of having Congressional support for his machinations. Note too, the Tea Party used the GOP vehicle, not a third party. Reason, third parties are losers, because they don't have the national organization and presence large enough to compete.</p>

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Rick Santorum has just suspended his campaign. I think the reason for suspending the campaign is it allows you to continue to raise money to pay off your debt, but Santorum's campaign has been suspended. God bless him. I don't know why. I don't know if he had internal polling numbers that looked bad in Pennsylvania. I don't know if it's money. I don't know if it's the accumulation of pressure on him from the establishment. It's probably a combination, some people say unprecedented, in a Republican primary. Negative campaign ads have clearly worked. They drove Newt...

    Newt Gingrich Issues Statement on Santorum’s Departure, Tells Mike Huckabee He’ll ‘Finally Get to Be 1-on-1 With Romney’ Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich was just on the Mike Huckabee Radio show, and commented on Santorum suspending his own presidential campaign just moments ago. On the show, Gingrich discussed finally getting to be ’1-on-1′ with Romney, how he will campaign going forward, and a possible debate in North Carolina with the current front-runner. Below are some highlights from Huckabee’s interview with Gingrich: “I did not get a heads up in advance. We have been talking for two weeks, and...

    WSJ ^ | 4/6/2012 | Naftali Bendavid
    The Howey/DePauw Indiana Battleground Poll shows Mr. Lugar with a 42%-35% lead over state treasurer Richard Mourdock, while among Republican voters, the two candidates are split at 38% each. Indiana has an open primary system, meaning non-Republicans can vote in the May 8 GOP primary. While Mr. Lugar is leading, the 42% figure is relatively low for a longtime incumbent, and the high proportion of undecided voters23%may be bad news for Mr. Lugar, given how well-known he is.

    Indianapolis (AP) -- Sen. Richard Lugar sounded wistful in his gratitude when he thanked supporters packed in the skybox of the Indiana Pacers' home court, as though he could see the approaching end of a political career that has spanned nearly half a century. "I thank all of you, the 50 or 60 of you who are co-sponsors of the rally. We appreciate very much your willingness to put your own names on the line and be helpful in bringing together this assembly," said the 80-year-old Indiana Republican who was first elected to the Senate in 1976. That characteristically understated...

Last week the Environmental Protection Agency issued new standards for carbon dioxide requiring that fewer than 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide be released per megawatt-hour of electricity. Plants running on natural gas already average below 850 pounds. Coal-fired plants, which emit on average 1,768 pounds per megawatt-hour, cannot achieve this without prohibitively...

    Dueling visions fight for Americas future. It isnt so much conflicting economic theories seeking similar ends, but fundamental disagreements over the scope of government. The competing sides champion very different ideals. The debate pits forces seeking safety through government against those striving to live free of government interference; between those thinking it ones responsibility to provide for his own and those who essentially suggest the state exists so we dont have to. President Obama repeatedly pillories Republicans for espousing On your own economics while seemingly esteeming On the dole economics himself. He rails that the rich should fork over their...

    'Tea Party' Marine sues Pentagon to stop discharge SAN DIEGO - A Camp Pendleton Marine is taking Defense Department brass to federal court, saying he is being hounded out of the service for exercising his First Amendment rights. Attorneys representing Sgt. Gary Stein filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Defense, Sec. of the Navy Ray Mabus, and Brigadier Gen. Daniel D. Yoo. "I can confirm that my lawyers on behalf of me are filing a lawsuit in federal court," Stein said told Fox 5 Tuesday afternoon. The 9-year Marine veteran is working with the ACLU and U.S. Justice...

    The Washington Post ^ | April 2, 2012 | E.J. Dionne Jr.
    Right before our eyes, American conservatism is becoming something very different from what it once was. Yet this transformation is happening by stealth because moderates are too afraid to acknowledge what all their senses tell them. Last week’s Supreme Court oral arguments on health care were the most dramatic example of how radical tea partyism has displaced mainstream conservative thinking. It’s not just that the law’s individual mandate was, until very recently, a conservative idea. Even conservative legal analysts were insisting it was impossible to imagine the court declaring the health-care mandate unconstitutional, given its past decisions. So imagine the...

    Mitt Romney, Tea Party candidate? Not so fast. The Republican front-runner appeared to be on an easy path to the nomination the morning after his win in Illinois, when The Washington Times reported that an influential tea party group, Freedom Works, was ready to fall in line behind him, supposedly capping the monthslong struggle Romney has endured to sway conservative voters. Unfortunately for Romney, the report especially the headline wasn't totally right, and the tea party is showing no sign of uniting behind him, or any candidate for that matter. Though the tea party remains a force in...
