    Special Edition04-15-19 ***After Action Report*** I just got back from the demonstration in Fresno, California. It wasn't a Free Republic event, but was sponsored by the local Tea Party and Free Republic was notified at the last minute, so Freeper attendence was small. I counted about 5-6 Freepers. I'd say the total attendance was 50-60 people total, maybe a bit more. There was a Tea Party board member with a sound system and microphone, a guy and his buddy from some web site that I forgot the name of and he was live-streaming the event somewhere on the internet....

    President Trump has our economy booming.  Unemployment claims are at an unprecedented 50-year-low.  There are more jobs available than there are workers to fill them. Yet every Democrat presidential candidate is on a mad dash to socialism.  If a Democrat is elected president in 2020, we will be thrust back to the depressing days of Obama's failed economy: record-high numbers of Americans on food stamps, unemployment, and disability.  Democrats are like drug-dealers seeking to insidiously addict Americans to government dependency solely to control their lives, behavior, and voting loyalty. From the beginning of the Tea Party movement, I traveled the country on numerous...

    The Mueller report exonerated President Trump of claims that he colluded with Russia to steal the election from Hillary Clinton. In response, Nancy Pelosi said screw Mueller's report. Her minions will continue seeking to create evidence of Trump/Russia collusion to impeach him. ... A highly visible Tea Party supportive of our president would help to counter the lies. There have been 533,074 articles claiming Trump colluded with Russia, filled will bogus accusations, deceptions and lies.

    Friday on CNNs The Situation Room, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman described President Donald Trump as demented. Friedman said, Its really sad. This is a party that has simply laid down for a demented man. They have been laying down for anyone who would energize their base, going back to Sarah Palin and the Tea Party, and now its Trump. He added, Were really risking our luck here. How long can this go on? We have a disturbed man as president. Thats very clear. We have a party that is not ready to stand up to it. What worries...

    Most everyone watching the live coverage of yesterdays George H. W. Bushs memorial service was touched by the comments made about the man. However, interesting enough, I overhead two 50 something (assumed to be liberal) women talking about former Congressman Alan Simpsons comments about the former President and it struck me as to how different we think, men vs. women / conservative vs. liberal. What Alan Simpson said was, George H. W. Bush hated no one. He went on to say, hatred corrodes the container its in. That was an amazing statement about a man that the media had put...

    If you have no capacity for violence then you are a healthy productive citizen: a sheep. If you have a capacity for violence and no empathy for your fellow citizens, then you have defined an aggressive sociopatha wolf. But what if you have a capacity for violence, and a deep love for your fellow citizens? Then you are a sheepdog, a warrior, someone who is walking the heros path.

    When Shakespeare wrote, A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, he may have been right then. Today, our definition of words is much more fluid and the latest debate centers around the word mob, defined by the dictionary as a crowd of people, especially one that is disorderly and intent on causing trouble. Cell phone videos proliferate of scenes such as the group chanting, We believe survivors, as they crowded around Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and his wife on a dinner date, screaming and driving the couple from the restaurant. Defenders of the screamers characterize them...

    Hot Air alum Noah Rothman pointed this out on Twitter this morning and I think hes really onto something. While various hosts at CNN are engaged in arguments to defend the honor of left-wing protesters running people out of restaurants, it was pretty common to see the Tea Party described as a mob 7-8 years ago. Here are some examples: Sep. 2010 Rolling Stones Matt Taibbi: Beneath the surface, the Tea Party is little more than a weird and disorderly mob, a federation of distinct and often competing strains of conservatism that have been unable to coalesce around a...

    WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans are forecasting nightmarish Democratic mob rule to amp up GOP voters for next months critical midterm elections, flipping the script from complaints that its Trump and the tea party movement whove boosted rowdy and divisive tactics to dangerous levels. Less than a month from voting in which GOP control of Congress is dangling precariously, Republicans are linking comments and actions by Democratic politicians, raucous protesters opposing Brett Kavanaughs Supreme Court nomination and even a gunman who shot targeted GOP lawmakers. The message to Republican voters: Democrats are employing radical tactics that...

    Transference is a psychiatric term for the ability to take your faults and ascribe them to others. In the dictionary next to the definition should be a photo of former President Barack Obama, particularly the section in his September 7 University of Illinois speech where he attacked President Trump for fomenting paranoia and division: In a moment reminiscent of Hillary Clinton's outrageous characterization of Trump voters as "deplorable" and "irredeemable," President Obama said: "I have to say this... Over the past few decades, the politics of division and resentment and paranoia has unfortunately found a home in the Republican Party."...

    If youre confused by President Trumps reluctance to celebrate the life of Sen. John McCain, its because Trump knows something you dont: his base. The Red Hats And Talk Radio wing of American politics has long had a problematic relationship with the Arizona senator. And by problematic, I mean, they hated his guts. For years, McCain was the poster child of the kind of Republicanism they loathed, the kind of Republicanism that eventually led many of these voters to turn to Trump in the first place. And if he were still with us, McCain would say Youre damn right. New...

    A judge late Wednesday signed off on the settlement between the IRS and hundreds of tea party groups, closing out the last major legal battle over what all sides now agree was unwarranted and illegal targeting for political purposes. The IRS agreed to pay $3.5 million to groups that were wronged by the intrusive inspections, and insists its made changes so that political targeting cant occur in the future. A few issues are still being fought over in the courts including whether former IRS senior executive Lois G. Lerner will be allowed to forever shield her deposition explaining her...

    In documents recently released under the Freedom of Information Act, Judicial Watch found that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was actively colluding with the IRS to harm the TEA Party groups that he mendaciously courted in his successful 2010 reelection bid. These groups are believed to have played a significant role in Republicans capturing a majority in Congress. A Democratic majority in both Houses of Congress enabled the passage of the Affordable Care Act (which came to be known as Obamacare) on a straight party line vote in late 2009. The loss of this majority constituted a serious impediment to the...

    (Washington, DC) Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCains former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous. Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel.

    If you love the United States Constitution, then by definition you love government. That's what the Constitution does. It creates a government. What we as Tea Partiers do not love is progressivism or any other movement and/or ideology that seeks to pervert the Constitution and build government that will control every aspect of our lives. Loving government doesn't mean loving big government. We do not love big out of control bloated disrespectful government. But anti-government means anarchy, and Tea Partiers are not anarchists. Anarchists do not love the United States Constitution. This is ground where we cannot under any circumstances...

    The Tea Party is back for President Donald J. Trump. A decade after the anti-government, anti-tax, and anti-Obama insurgency emerged, and eight years after the movement fueled the midterm elections that gave the Republican Party control of the House of Representatives and sent conservatives like Rand Paul, Michele Bachmann, and Mark Meadows to Congress, Tea Party activists are getting active again in midterm races. This time theyre not trying to blow up the system or fight big government. Theyre here to support President Trump, no matter that hes the biggest big-government Republican of them all. And in 2018, theyre...
