  • How We Killed the Tea Party

    Politico Magazine ^ | Paul H. Jossey
    Greedy PACs drained the movement with endless pleas for money to support “conservative” causes and candidates. I worked for one of them. But Tea Party ideas live on. As we watch the Republican Party tear itself to shreds over Donald Trump, perhaps it’s time to take note of another conservative political phenomenon that the GOP nominee has utterly eclipsed: the Tea Party. The Tea Party movement is pretty much dead now, but it didn’t die a natural death. It was murdered—and it was an inside job. In a half decade, the spontaneous uprising that shook official Washington degenerated into a...

    Senator Ted Cruz has earned the endorsement of the largest Tea Party group in America. The Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund announced today they are backing the senator from Texas for President. “We seek a candidate who shares our values: personal freedom, economic freedom, and a debt-free future,” said Chairman Jenny Beth Martin in a press release. “I am proud to announce our endorsement for president of the United States: Senator Ted Cruz!”There were a number of steps for each candidate to be considered for the endorsement. Candidates filled out a questionnaire, were interviewed, underwent vetting by opposition research, and...

    Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are set to rally against the Iran deal next week in Washington, but will other 2016 candidates be joining them? According to Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin, whose group is organizing the event, not a single presidential candidate or campaign has expressed interest in attending the September 9 event at the Capitol. "I know no other candidates for president in their official capacity or even as a candidate have reached out to us at all about [attending]," Martin told the Washington Examiner Tuesday evening. "No one else has reached out to us." "I...

I just got another email from Jenny Beth asking if we have any more funds in the budget that can be directed toward grassroots activities in our targeted states. And honestly, I'm pretty stressed out... because the answer is NO. You see, right now, we're still $27,986 away from our weekly fundraising goal. And if I can't raise those funds in the next few hours, we're going to have to start cutting back our grassroots efforts in key states like Iowa, North Carolina, and New...

Conservative activist Brent Bozell, chairman of the group ForAmerica, obtained the distribution list and plans to send a letter blasting Crossroads' role in last year's election and the creation of its new independent group for the 2014 mid-term elections.

  • Tea Party Dominates CPAC 2013 Agenda (And the Left ain't happy about it!)

    For decades, the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) has been a barometer of the different political tendencies inside the right-wing. In the 1980s, Reagan administration officials and Reaganite New Rightists dominated the podium. Pres. Reagan spoke at CPAC in both 1984 and 1988. In the 1990s, culture warriors like Pat Buchanan and the Rev. Pat Robertson joined Republican regulars such as Sens. Bob Dole and Phil Gramm. At this years’ CPAC13, Tea Party leaders and Tea Party-supported politicians will dominate the proceedings. The result is an agenda filled with bigots, conspiracy mongers, and publicity hounds. Consider the inclusion of...

What if they had done “what they were told” to not make noise, to not organize, to keep their passion for America’s future and potential demise to themselves? The American conservative comeback of 2010 would have been a “might have been” instead of a solid building block for reemerging American patriotism that the movement has become. Sarah Palin not only helped develop the new political conservative narrative for America, her heart and her soul is...

    President Obama and his Tea Party rivals find themselves on the same side of defense cuts. This is bad news for the country. If the so-called “super-committee” created by the deal to raise the debt limit does not reach agreement on future spending cuts, it would trigger automatic cuts of $1.2 trillion divided evenly between domestic programs and defense. In other words, the Pentagon could have to cough up $600 billion over the coming decade. As The Washington Post reports, “To put that $600 billion in perspective, it’s worth noting that the federal government was already looking at reducing projected...

As this video demonstrates, he tells lies to the American people to keep us soothed and pacified while he dismantles the fruits of the American Revolution brick by brick. But behind closed doors, when he is speaking to his fellow anti-American radicals, he can be quite candid about his real plans for America...

    Having just plodded through former Senator and currently failed politicician John Sununu's turgid little hit piece in the Boston Globe, I am struck by the irony of his premise. In his article, he lumps Sarah Palin and Donald Trump together as candidates and dismisses them as "two media stars" with an overweening ambition to BE President (as opposed to wanting to DO things as President): "Both Trump and Palin also seem captivated by the idea of BEING president. They obviously like the idea of running for president, and spend a great deal of time talking about what they would do...

    A common theme of the tea party is ‘let’s take our country back’. After Wednesday’s dismal display in Washington, D.C., I submit that it’s time to take our movement back! When the very first tea party call to action rang out, well over a million patriots responded by showing up in our nation’s capitol on September 12, 2009. Subsequently, when Obama, Pelosi and the Progressive Left were ignoring the will of the American people by shoving ObamaCare down our throats, another ‘emergency’ call to action was put out and in a matter of days thousands made the trek. This past...

    If I was younger and still serving I would be honored to have her as my commander in chief. You can keep the phony tough guy men that get trotted out as candidates. I saw REAL leadership up close and I know what it looks like. Sarah Palin has “IT.”

    There is a mentality among artists which I have always found puzzling. While poor, unknown, and ineffective, they are considered “authentic.” However, as soon as they strike it big, start to make money, and meet with success, they become reviled as “sell outs.” A similar dynamic threatens to undermine the Tea Party movement. To some among its ranks, the term “grassroots” seems to demand perpetual lowliness. Once a grassroots activist or organization begins to mature, build coalitions, and meet with success, they are suddenly “part of the problem.” Such was the narrative of an “investigation” by Mother Jones of Tea...

    Such may be the headline those in the mainstream media would be inclined to concoct in reference to the Tea Party Patriots American Policy Summit which kicked-off Friday and continues throughout the weekend. As truly vile racist hate-mongers continue their tax-payer funded violent tantrum in Madison, demanding recognition as a protected class set apart and above their fellow man, those gathered in Phoenix under the banner of Tea Party Patriots struck a decisively different tone. Friday’s program began with focused breakout sessions. Themes in “How to Start a Tea Party” included such hateful points as “leaders must demonstrate a positive...

    If the battle between Republican Gov. Scott Walker and his GOP allies in the state legislature and the public employee unions of Wisconsin government is Ground Zero for the struggle for America's future, where is Sarah Palin? Where is the Tea Party? The left was prepared for this battle and they have done a masterful job of turning out their shock troops to create chaos and confusion, to say nothing of posing an intimidation factor against Wisconsin taxpayers and their legislators. The public employee unions didn't expect Gov, Chris Christie to have such success in New Jersey, so they weren't...

    The Tea Party Patriots have got a lot of explaining to do. Fresh off helping campaigns for GOP wins in the U.S. House of Representatives, members in the Tea Party Patriots organization appear to be playing dirty tricks on Capitol Hill to the dismay of tea party activists who supported efforts of the organization during the midterm elections. Leaders of the Tea Party Patriots released the private e-mail addresses and cell phone numbers of newly elected Republican members of the freshman class, Roll Call reported on Friday. Urging their members to contact the new GOP’er’s on the hill, Tea Party...

    A gay conservative group and some Tea Party leaders are campaigning to keep social issues off the Republican agenda. In a letter to be released Monday, the group GOProud and leaders from groups like the Tea Party Patriots and the New American Patriots, will urge Republicans in the House and Senate to keep their focus on shrinking the government. "On behalf of limited-government conservatives everywhere, we write to urge you and your colleagues in Washington to put forward a legislative agenda in the next Congress that reflects the principles of the Tea Party movement," they write to presumptive House Speaker...

    The top of the announcement from the Tea Party Patriots reads "Don't Let them steal OUR new Members of Congress." The Tea Party Patriots, which is planning an event Sunday afternoon for the congressional freshmen, is worried that another event at the Capitol Hill Club hosted by the RNC will "co-opt" the freshmen. The Patriots are upset that the GOP event moderated by former Education Secretary Bill Bennett is competing with theirs.
