Tea Party

Is the Tea Party, good bad or ugly, you decide, it looks more and more like the tea party may be you and your neighbor, and small town America, Small farming communities, small places all over this nation. You might be surprised just who is a Tea Party supporter.

Dear Patriot,

After the members of TheTeaParty.net made 400,000+ contacts with their elected representatives in Washington DC a deal was reached on the debt ceiling that failed to meet our simple message: don’t raise the debt ceiling without addressing the underlying spending problem!  This deal on the debt ceiling does not significantly improve our long-term financial outlook and falls well short of what we had asked for.  

Sponsor

It is clear that our government has missed yet another opportunity to make the difficult and painful cuts necessary to preserve American exceptionalism.

 Many have criticized Speaker Boehner for not getting the most desirable deal, but the real fault lies with his colleagues in the Senate, on both sides of the aisle, who worked to minimize his leverage at every point.

We have received overwhelming correspondence from many of our membership praising Speaker Boehner for much of what he was able to accomplish on behalf of the Tea Party movement.  By passing Cut, Cap, and Balance and fighting to win concessions from the Senate and President Obama, he has shown the kind of principled leadership that has long been missing from Washington.

The political reality that the Tea Party butted up against, is that absent a deal to raise the debt ceiling, President Obama and his many allies in the media would have blamed every single negative event between now and the election on the failure of Speaker Boehner and the Tea Party to make a deal.  Every bad economic report, every lossed job, every storm, injury, and spilled cup of coffee in the country would have been turned into another attack on Tea Party inflexibility.

After nearly three years, Obama owns this economy. Had Republicans failed to make a deal, it would have given President Obama the out he needed to strengthen his position in 2012.

 It should be noted that the Tea Party Caucus in the House voted 32 – 28 in favor of the deal negotiated by Speaker Boehner.  This deal is a sign of failed leadership, but that failure does not fall on Speaker Boehner and the House Republicans.

A clear distinction has been made between how we will govern and how our opposition will govern.  They oppose a balanced budget and they support tax hikes.  When we win the White house and the Senate in 2012 we will pass Cut, Cap, and Balance and eliminate the national debt.

This was but one skirmish in a long war between conflicting ideologies, and we won.  There will be more fights soon including a debate over the next continuing resolution in September.  Get ready because after this victory we are going to extract bigger cuts and better policy from the advocates of big government.

Thank you,

Is Obama Terrified of the “Secret $200 Retirement Blueprint?”


Hope and Change?

Just wondering is this the hope and the change that you voted for in 2008?

It sort of seems lacking to me, I mean, what we heard, and what we god were two very different things.

Change is something that we all want, which is why so many people voted for that hope and that change, however, we were betrayed, simple as that, we were told one thing then given something else entirely, they used to call that bait and switch.

A cheap parlor trick, some might say, (allegedly)

Dear Patriot,

Something incredible has been happening over the last few days, and it was every loyal member of the Tea Party Movement that made it happen! If you’ve been following the news, you’ve heard nearly every political commentator comment on the fact that Speaker John Boehner was forced to change his original plan twice because he couldn’t muster the 216 votes to get it passed. The general commentary goes like this: “In the past, Speaker Boehner could have given away money for a bridge or a library to buy the votes he needed, but the Tea Party banned earmarks so he doesn’t have that luxury.” Many of these old media dinosaurs speak with disdain when they make this point, as though by stripping the Congress of their currency of corruption (earmarks) is a bad thing; they just don’t get it! You should feel extremely proud of what those of us in the Tea Party have done–we have changed the entire culture inside Congress!

Now, if a politician wants to get the votes to pass legislation, he better be able to win on the merits of that legislation. It’s no longer an option to trade an unprincipled vote to fund some absurd pet project. No more “cornhusker kickbacks” for Ben Nelson in Nebraska; no more “Louisiana purchase” for Mary Landrieu in exchange for the passage of the dangerous Obamacare. This is the first example of how we are going to stop the flow of terrible legislation from Washington.

I’m so proud to have played my small role, and I’m genuinely hopeful that as we continue to grow, “We The People” will be able to preserve the blessings of liberty for our children and grandchildren! The fight over the debt ceiling continues but already we’ve secured important victories by changing the process. This organization will continue to recruit tens of thousands of new patriots each and every week, and we’ll continue to provide the latest and best tools to make all of us more effective activists. TOGETHER, WE WILL WIN!

The most incredible part is we have put all of this infrastructure together without having to sell our souls to anyone. We’re entirely funded by patriots just like you who make an average contribution of less than $60! This truly is a historic day for the direction of country and we remain humbled by your continued support.

Media Bias

The Media does not like the tea party, no surprise there as it has long been established that the media is not really that impartial in its reporting of the news, however it begs the question that should be something everyone is talking about, which is how can the media only present one side of a situation, and still be trusted?

Think about that for a moment, The media has been presenting only one part of the story, only one perspective, even Fox news which has become one of the more popular media outlets, is sliding over to one view, they say that they are fair and ballanced, but are they really?  Bill hemmer, Bill, orielly, Shepard Smith,  all tend to present Bias in their coverage, they want you to believe that they are presenting news and facts, but is that really accurate?

Bill orielly, says the spin stops here, but when he engages in favoring one side over another, when he only covers one side of an issue and talks over anyone Else’s opinion, then is that not his own “spin” I find it hard to swallow that Bill is not having some kind of mental issue, (allegedly) but I guess that is to be expected as he has a history of this in his family, and that is to be expected, however there is a thin line between reality and fantasy, and Bill sometimes I think gets lost in that thin line.

This was just received in an email and it is compelling, the Media is against the tea party, but why is that?

sold out America?

Have we been sold out by the republicans in congress, who were elected to do the will of the people.

It is a serious problem when those that promise to do the right thing fail to do it, when presented with the chance to make a difference in the world have they betrayed the people who voted for them?

I find it difficult to support a speaker that allegedly has sold out the American people in favor of political things that perhaps would be better if people kept their word, in the past the media depended upon people not being aware of what is really going on in the world however that has changed because the people are not dependant upon the media any longer.

The word is out all over the Internet, the people feel like they have been allegedly betrayed.

In the last election cycle it was clear that a mandate came from the American people this has been ignored by the republicians led by speaker Boehner leading to headlines like Boehner betrays American People, and other websites are also making strong statements, it is a problem that the media is ignorning.

Bill orielly made the statement that the Tea party was finished, (allegedly) but is Bill really fair and ballanced or was he just spinning trying to wrangle another invite to that great tasting whitehouse food?

That is just about standard fare here, for ol bill orielly, because, it is very obvious that Bill is not being fair in his analysis.

Others have said that the tea party was finished in the past, but they were wrong.

Bill is wrong on this too and he lost a viewer tonight, in his nasty, (allegedly) anti tea party rant on national TV.

One thing remains clear, the people have spoken and if Boehner will not do the will of the people then it is time for him to step down.

In November the American people sent a clear unequivocal message CUT SPENDING. Republican leadership promised a minimum 100 billion in cuts immediately if elected. The quickly backslid to $61 billion and now we see Speaker Boehner throw American voters who want their government saved….overboard with a pitiful and insignificant $38 billion in cuts.Disgusting..a betrayal..reprehensible are the nicest words that come to mind.

Sadly I am very disapointed in the speaker for not leading..

It is a failure…

At a time when we needed leadership the most, we have a man who cannot stand on his own two feet, please Mr. Speaker if you do not intend to lead, please resign.
