    Rest in Peace Andrew Breitbart Posted on March 1, 2012 The conservative movement lost one of its most courageous leaders in Andrew Breitbart. He was an ardent supporter of the tea party movement, frequently appearing at rallies and encouraging Americans to take our country back. When Andrew joined us in the Tea Party Express III kick-off rally in Searchlight, Nevada in 2010 with Governor Sarah Palin, not only did he speak eloquently, but he confronted the liberal demonstrators with his signature aplomb. He was amused when their only intellectual response was to assault him and the Tea Party Express...

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Newt Gingrich's fast Florida fade is the latest indication that the Tea Party is losing its grip on the GOP, with the establishment poised to triumph once again. An official endorsement Saturday night from last year's Tea Party standout, Herman Cain; an all-but-official backing from longtime Tea Party darling Sarah Palin; and the support of an increasing number of Tea Party officials around the country have not lifted Gingrich back over Mitt Romney in the Florida polls. That weakened clout has been accompanied by the Republican establishment's full-throttle charge at Gingrich's past -- to great effect with...

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla, head of the Democratic National Committee and the "Debbie Downer" of American politics, has repeated the canard that somehow the shooting of Rep.

    SACRAMENTO, Dec. 27 (UPI) -- The Tea Party Express offered support to Rep. Michele Bachmann's bid to be the Republican Party's presidential nominee, but stopped short of an endorsement.

"While the Tea Party Express has not endorsed a presidential candidate at this time, Michele Bachmann [R-Minn.] garners strong Tea Party support because of her work and commitment to restoring fiscal responsibility to Washington, D.C.," Tea...

    The tea party is still pining for Sarah Palin. The grassroots conservative movement has yet to throw its support behind a Republican presidential candidate because “we don’t have the female Ronald Reagan running — and that’s Sarah Palin,” said Amy Kremer, chairwoman of the Tea Party Express. “We haven’t engaged in presidential politics yet because the movement hasn’t coalesced around anybody, so we’re just sitting back and waiting,” Kremer added. Predicting that a good slice of the country’s conservatives will not make up their minds until they are standing in front of the ballot box, Kremer singled out the former...

        In 2008 Barack Obama’s campaign shtick was “change.” That resonated because President Bush was spending too much and the country meant to change Washington. But Obama meant to change the country. In response the Tea Party movement has arisen to implement the real change, putting brakes on that out of control big government growth. Our message to Washington is simple: you have run out of our money, stop excessive spending. You cannot borrow your way out of debt; you cannot spend your way out of deficits. What is President Obama’s response to our message of fiscal responsibility? Shared...

But businesses aren’t enemies conniving to exploit hapless workers and extract unwarranted profits. Businesses work feverishly developing products consumers desire. Companies not only sell us ways to beautify and improve life, they also offer the means empowering us to acquire such articles: employment. Markets serve the interests of others, by seeking one’s own advancement. Profits accumulate when customers fancy our output. We gain by serving our neighbors.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, the founder of the House of Representatives Tea Party Caucus, and other diehard conservatives are already activists' favorites. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman are not; they're perceived as too moderate and compromising.

She says we need to hear from candidates who can do more than just talk, as we’ve tried that before, but have records of accomplishment and proven records of reform. It was at this point the crowd broke out into “Run Sarah Run” chants,...

    Two weeks ago, when billionaire Warren Buffett called for higher taxes on rich people like him, the liberal media predictably gushed and fawned.
