Neither of the dinosaur parties were much in evidence as the nation’s two new emergent parties did battle for the heart of America.Green or Tea, which shall it be?The catalyst that triggered this political firefight was the arrival in Napa of the Tea Party Express buses; Saturday, August 27 was the day the media-savvy group kicked off its coast-to-coast Reclaiming America Tour, culminating on September 12 in Tampa, Florida, at the CNN/Tea Party Express...

    Sarah Palin’s political itinerary over Labor Day weekend is becoming clearer, even if her intentions are not. Ms. Palin, who was already set to deliver a speech in Iowa on Saturday, has added a stop in New Hampshire. She is now scheduled to speak at an afternoon Tea Party rally on Monday at Veterans Square Park in Manchester. The addition of New Hampshire to Ms. Palin’s weekend schedule adds another layer of curiosity to speculation about her political future. She has yet to rule out joining the Republican presidential race, but she is not expected to announce her intentions during...

    Des Moines, Iowa (CNN) – For the first time, Mitt Romney will headline a major national tea party rally. On Labor Day the Republican presidential candidate will join the Tea Party Express’ “Reclaiming America” bus tour in Manchester, New Hampshire, organizers tell CNN. The group’s fifth national bus tour kicked off last week in California and will end in Tampa ahead of the CNN/Tea Party Express debate on September 12th. Thirty stops are on the bus tour’s schedule. Romney’s appearance at the event is significant: he has not headlined any events in the Tea Party Express’ previous four bus tours....

    Two weeks ago, when billionaire Warren Buffett called for higher taxes on rich people like him, the liberal media predictably gushed and fawned. Yet when Americans for Better Government revealed last week that Buffett's company Berkshire Hathaway has been in an almost decade-long dispute with the IRS over how much taxes it owes, these same press members couldn't care less: According to Berkshire Hathaway’s own annual report — see Note 15 on pp. 54-56 — the company has been in a years-long dispute over its federal tax bills. According to the report, “We anticipate that we will resolve all adjustments...

    They've been dismissed as the inconsequential, angry, funny-hat-wearing political fringe. But conservatives and Tea Party activists at lively celebrations in the Bay Area say they're beginning to be recognized as something else as the 2012 elections loom: a mainstream movement. With two big gatherings - a California Young Republican Federation convention in San Francisco on Friday and a Tea Party Express gathering in Napa on Saturday - it wasn't so lonely being a conservative in the Democratic bastion of the Bay Area. "We're not afraid to come to the Bay Area, because the majority of the people in the Bay...

As supporters waved American flags and carried signs that read, "I'll keep my money, guns and freedom, you keep the change," organizers said the "Reclaiming America" bus tour was about restoring good governance.

    I'm often asked why we're not organizing another Taxpayer March on Washington this September 12th. Why, after more than a million Americans protested on 9/12/2009 and 9/12/2010, aren't we headed back to Washington? The reason is simple: we're not just a protest movement anymore. This movement has had stages. We began as a protest movement against big government in 2009, morphed into America's most powerful get-out-the-vote machine in 2010, and pushed for transformative legislative change to rein in government in 2011.

Never have, never will. We have been called terrorists, jihadists, racists, extortionists, bigots, hostage takers, suicide bombers. I can go on and on. Even our Vice President, Joe Biden, jumped into the fray. It is reported that he said, in support of another Democrat's statement, that the Republicans "...acted like terrorists." He denies he used the word 'terrorist', but even if he agreed with the statement, he looks foolish. Ironic,...

Their challenge now that President Obama has signed the debt limit law: Can the Tea Party transform its government-shrinking mantra into long-term power, or will it be a one-hit wonder? They're not stopping to think about it. This month, Tea Partiers will storm town hall meetings of Republican and Democratic members of Congress and...

The group is headed up by the Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, president of BOND Action (the Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny). Black Tea Partiers' specific gripes about the civil rights organization include that it's been "spreading lies" about racism in the Tea Party movement and promoting "black genocide" through its support of Planned Parenthood.

The assembled activists chanted, "Kill the bill! Kill the bill!" and waved signs opposing a government takeover of health care — but they may not have known that the same government was paying for the event. According to House expense reports, Bachmann and three conservative GOP colleagues — Reps. Tom Price (Ga.), Steve King (Iowa) and Todd Akin (Mo.) — each paid $3,407.50 that day, a total...

    The liberal line of attack on the Tea Party movement that has gained the most traction is that it opposes President Obama because of his skin color, not his policies. The movement is, in the mind of many in the Democratic Party and liberal organizations, rooted in a fundamentally racist view of America and of the president.This charge is conventional wisdom for many in the media. Former NPR fund-raising executive Ron Schiller denounced the Tea Party movement to undercover conservative activists posing as Muslim financiers: “I mean, basically they ... believe in sort of white, middle-America, gun-toting.

For some reason, the Atlantic writer, Joshua Green, finally realized in May of 2011 what Governor Palin accomplished as an oil and gas commissioner in 2003-2004 and as Governor 2006-2009. She took on the corruption in her own party in both roles. She revamped the oil taxation plan in Alaska by cleaning up the corruption of her predecessor and helping leave Alaska with what is currently a $12...
  • TEA Party vs Fraudulent tea party in New York 26th district

    We need your help! This congressional race in the NY 26th is more important than just "Party" politics. The special election and who wins it will have an effect on the redistricting of New York State. We cannot let a Liberal tax and spend democrat pull out a victory here. There are many disgruntled, angry Republicans out there and some of them are helping in the Davis camp. They want to defeat the Republican machine and that is all they care about. This is NOT the race to do it, this is NOT the time or place to play vengeance...

    President Barack Obama does have a knack of giving advice to others, because...well, he knows better, right? In an interview with Romona Robinson of WKYC TV, Cleveland's NBC affiliate, Mr. Obama stated that he strongly disapproves of new laws restricting public employee unions in Ohio and Wisconsin. He said states should not use the financial crisis as an excuse to erode bargaining rights. Gov. John Kasich of Ohio responded to Obama's comments testily.
  • Romney signs off on permanent assault weapons ban

    Governor Mitt Romney has signed into law a permanent assault weapons ban that he says will make it harder for criminals to get their hands on these guns. Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts, Romney said, at a bill signing ceremony on July 1 with legislators, sportsmen's groups and gun safety advocates. These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people. Like the federal assault weapons ban, the state ban, put in place in 1998, was scheduled to expire in September. The new...

    Future historians will describe the Democratic Party's demonization of the Tea Party movement as a major political blunder that put them squarely on the wrong side of America's 21st Century financial crisis. When Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said on a conference call that he'd been instructed by "the caucus" to use the word "extreme" when referring to the Tea Party, he carelessly revealed the previously obvious but unacknowledged truth.  Democrats have a coordinated plan to demonize the Tea Party movement (TPM) via their oft-repeated meme that implicitly characterizes law-abiding citizens as terrorists -- as with fundamentalist Islam or domestic militias,...

    TEA PARTY EXPRESS ANNOUNCES URGENT CALL FOR ACTION!Volunteers Needed for Wisconsin“Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”Friends, this is an extremely time-critical call for action. As many of you know, Wisconsin has been ground zero in the conservative fight to take back our country.&nbsp; When Governor Scott Walker decided to get serious about controlling run-away government spending, the left decided to make Wisconsin the big stand against the tea party conservatives.&nbsp; When their walk-out of State Senators didn’t work, they went to court.&nbsp; And then they dropped a surprise bomb...

    I have taken some heat for calling this week's budget passage a win for Republicans, and John Boehner in particular. I think those people are way off base. Just a list of reasons why this is an all out victory for true conservatives: 1. Boehner got $39 Billion in cuts for this fiscal year. That is $74 Billion less than Obama's projected budget, and will trim the federal debt by $500 Billion over the next decade. All of this while controlling only one half of Congress. Remember where we started on this. Carl Cameron of Fox put it best: The...

    Washington - Call it an appetizer, with the main course still to come. An independent conservative group says it's going up in some battleground states with a television commercial that's critical of President Barack Obama, one of the first of what could be many ads by similar groups on the right. Joe Wierzbecki, the executive director of the organization, tells CNN that the ad began running this weekend on television stations in Nevada, with ad time being purchased in Michigan and Wisconsin. Wierzbecki says his plan is to eventually also run the commercial in Colorado, Missouri and Ohio.The spot, titled

    Why is it a great day for the children of Washington, D.C., you ask? Because with the coming passage of the 2011 budget bill, President Obama will sign into law one of the most successful education programs in Washington, D.C. history: The D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program. The program — which was started during the Bush Administration to provide low-income District students with money to attend private schools — was closed by Democrats in 2009, largely because of pressure from the Teacher's unions. The House recently passed a Boehner-authored bill last month — the SOAR Act — to reauthorize the program...
