A Second Wave: Tea Party
Leader Says, ´You Ain´t
Seen Nothing Yet´

Big Government, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 12/13/2012 12:30:46 PM

Todd Cefaratti, the president of TheTeaParty.net, has a message for Republicans and Democrats alike: “This is just the beginning. If you think the tea party’s dead, you ain’t seen nothing yet.” At a press conference inside the Capitol Hill Club in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday afternoon, Cefarratti’s organization and several House Republicans joined with Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul to decry House GOP leadership considering capitulating to Democratic efforts to raise taxes during the fiscal cliff negotiations. A more subtle message that carried throughout the presser, though,

I guess we`ll see very shortly whether the Tea Party has any real clout with the GOP when whatever `deal` comes to light from Boehner regarding the Fiscal Cliff rears its ugly head.

Will current House republicans tell the Speaker to pound sand? The next Congress that takes effect on 1/2/13?

Spare us the lofty rhetoric and let`s see some real action.

We´re heading for another recession next year. Probably would have had one regardless of the election outcome, but oblamer´s reelection sealed the deal.

So oblamer is being obstinant, purposefully refusing to bargain in good faith with Boehner, wanting to "go over the fiscal cliff", so that he can blame the coming recession on the republicans in congress.

The pubbies should seriously give Him everything he wants and just vote ´present´ when it comes up for a vote. It will be painful, yes, but there would be no way anybody with more than a handful of functioning brain cells would buy his predictable excuse that it was the fault of congressional republicans. He would own it lock stock and barrel.

Maybe then the honey boo boo crowd would wake up. Sometimes you really have to hit rock bottom before you accept that things must change.

With 0bama´s second term the SCOTUS is lost for a generation, 0bamacare is here to stay, the majority of what used to be called "Americans" are being frog-boiled into a socialist stupor, and there will be no hope for economic sanity or recovery of our free market until King Barry is dethroned.

All the tea party can do is sit back and say "We told you so" until a real American conservative leader emerges.

If Republicans go along with Obama in any way, they ARE betraying the country. The electorate is now too dumb, the GOP too passive, and the media too biased to change ANYTHING. How many times must we tell Republicans that since you will always be blamed for things, just do the right thing. Americans are never going to "get it" now until everything falls apart. Vote "present" and go home. Boehner´s warnings about staying at work over Christmas are empty and everybody knows it anyway.

He is right. For many of us there is no other variable option. Do we support the fascist Marxist Democrats? Do we support the European lite socialist Rebublicans? No, we move on to a party that actually believes in liberty.

What happened in the 2010 elections? Conservatives were in the streets and in their faces. Pitchforks in the streets are what gets the attention of the media and the dead head voters. The ignorant and the gullible take passion for sincerity. And in their stupidity they tend to believe if crowds are in the streets and passionate about what they believe then they must be right. THAT is how the left manipulates the "low information" (stupid) voters. It makes them appear to be the majority since the other side never shows up.

Well , in 2010 the opposition did show up in the streets. And we won hands down with historic results. Now, we are letting the stupid party do the work and they have no clue how to advance the agenda. Unless conservatives get in the streets to save our country, we are doomed.

Many who initially embraced Tea Party ideals, like me, have come to the realization that our problems won´t be fixed by petitioning politicians and a corrupt, broken system. So we´re quietly seeing to our own needs in anticipation many things we take for granted are going to break soon.

#7, I think that was before the Tea Party broke down into splinter groups squabbling about which was the REAL Tea Party.

Tea Party.net? Is that related to the Tea Party Express, which is the name on the podium in the photo? How do they feel about the Tea Party Patriots, who regard themselves as the only true Tea Party? And where does Tea Party Nation come into the mix? And all the other splinter groups?

Get back to me when they coalesce behind an agreed-upon set of ideas.

And somebody better muzzle Paul Broun before me makes any more idiotic remarks about embryology being an idea spawned in the pit of hell. He makes Todd Akin look like Einstein.

The Tea Party should not be the tail that wags the dog. Anything which divides us further should be eschewed.

The past, in its simplicity, was ignored in the recent election. Anything which divides us, such as calling people "Rino´s", is bad. If conservative voters don´t go to the polls and vote for the candidate who opposes the liberal for election, the conservatives will lose, as they did.

I would have voted for Jo Jo the Dog -Faced Boy if he had been the Republican nominee. Could he have made a worse president?

I was a Republican when the Tea Partyers were voting democrat like they and their kin had since the civil war.

The Tea Party will have a great impact during the mid terms. It is these off year elections that the "high information" voters turn out. There will be primary challenges just like in 2010. "Low information" voters will stay home as usual since a celebrity like Obama isn´t on the ballot. They are already back in their holes watching the View and Honey Boo Boo.

Vote to Hold Lois Lerner in Contempt of

Breitbart Instablog, by John Sexton    Original Article

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee announced yesterday that it will hold a vote to decide whether former I.R.S. employee Lois Lerner is in contempt of Congress on Thursday, April 10th. Lerner has twice been called before Congress to testify about her involvement in the inappropriate targeting of conservative 501(c)(4) groups for extra scrutiny. On both occasions Lerner asserted her 5th amendment right not to testify. Rep. Issa and other Republicans on the Committee have maintained that Lerner waived her right not to testify when, during her first appearance before the Committee back in 2013, she made a speech proclaiming her

The Obama administration has made it increasingly difficult for Congress and inspectors general to uncover government misdeeds and access information in various agencies, according to recent congressional testimony and reports. On Thursday, Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz testified before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing that Attorney General Eric Holder stonewalled his investigation of the “Operation Fast and Furious” gunwalking scandal. Mr. Horowitz also said his office has been stymied in other investigations of the Justice Department because of the Obama administration’s interpretation of access laws, which essentially requires investigators to ask department heads for permission to investigate them. “For a review

Hypersensitive students and professors all over the country are about to score another victory for political correctness if they succeed in their mission to normalize the use of “trigger warnings,” which are intended to protect people from taking part in class discussions and media that might offend them. Trigger warnings are most commonly attached to online news articles and blog posts. They warn readers that the post contains specific, offensive content. An article about sexual violence, for instance, might come with a trigger warning for rape victims. The idea is to prevent post traumatic stress. But censorship-inclined activists are now eager to

There’s a scene in P.G. Wodehouse’s Right Ho, Jeeves where Bertie Wooster receives a telegram from his fearsome Aunt Dahlia that reads: “Come at once.” Bertie is puzzled. He reflects and agonizes and sends several follow-up telegrams requesting more lucid instruction. Finally he shows the cable to his perceptive manservant Jeeves and asks him to translate. “I think Mrs. Travers wants you to come at once, sir,” Jeeves says.

WASHINGTON — From Boston proud to Boston crass. Boston Red Sox superstar slugger David Ortiz took a selfie with President Barack Obama on Tuesday, jumping in with his cellphone moments before the official White House photo op to honor the World Series champs. “What an honor! Thanks for the #selfie, @BarackObama,” @davidortiz tweeted. By Wednesday night, the pic had 40,478 retweets and 46,765 favorites. Ortiz, it turns out, was not just a guy at the White House getting an insiders tour — because Ortiz just signed an endorsement deal with Samsung, the cellphone maker.

A Michigan mother of five says that the crushing new costs associated with Obamacare have imperiled her family’s financial future and will burden the household with thousands of dollars in unexpected expenses. The uptick in costs that Shannon Wendt and her family will face in the coming years under President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act will strain the family’s finances and force both Shannon and her husband to work harder to bridge the fiscal gap. Wendt initially decided to discuss her plight in an ad produced by the advocacy group Americans for Prosperity, which has chronicled the negative impact of Obamacare on

WASHINGTON — In July 2010, Joe McSpedon, a U.S. government official, flew to Barcelona to put the final touches on a secret plan to build a social media project aimed at undermining Cuba´s communist government. McSpedon and his team of high-tech contractors had come in from Costa Rica and Nicaragua, Washington and Denver. Their mission: to launch a messaging network that could reach hundreds of thousands of Cubans.

Supreme Court Strikes Down
Overall Political Donation Cap

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Wednesday continued its abolition of limits on election spending, striking down a decades-old cap on the total amount any individual can contribute to federal candidates in a two-year election cycle. The ruling, issued near the start of a campaign season, will very likely increase the role money plays in American politics. The 5-to-4 decision, with the court’s more conservative members in the majority, echoed Citizens United, the 2010 decision that struck down limits on independent campaign spending by corporations and unions. Wednesday’s decision seemed to alter campaign finance law in subtle but important ways, notably by limiting

Earlier in the week, Twitter was ablaze with a debate over Obamacare and public opinion: Was the Washington Post/ABC News poll purporting to show the law´s approval slightly above water an outlier, or the beginning of a trend? I argued the former, citing a fresh CBS News survey that aligned with previous negative polling. The latest Quinnipiac poll should settle the debate. It pegs President Obama´s approval rating underwater at 42/50, with Obamacare clocking in at 41/55. A few additional findings: (1) Voters split roughly evenly on the generic Congressional ballot, with independents leaning toward the GOP by seven points.

Obamacare will cost large companies between $4,800 and $5,900 more per employee and add hundreds of millions to their overhead, according to a new survey. The American Health Policy Institute conducted a confidential survey of 100 large employers—those with 10,000 or more employees—asking what costs they expect to incur from Obamacare over the next decade. Factoring in the health care law’s added mandates, fees, and regulatory burdens, employers anticipate cost hikes between $163 million and $200 million in 2016, a 4.3 percent increase. By 2023, employers will be paying 8.4 percent more than “what they would otherwise be spending” for

Calling himself “all for freedom,” Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday commended the ruling, saying “donors ought to have the freedom to give what they want to give."

The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore.
