It's Time to Brew: the Tea Party Needs to Come Alive

By Layne Hansen

Academics and pundits have many criticisms of the Tea Party, e.g., its members are racists, sexists, homophobes, etc. These are unfounded claims, but there is one criticism that is true and it is holding this movement back: the Tea Party is disorganized and lacks sophistication and cohesion. This lack of organization has benefitted the Tea Party in some ways, but the time has come for this passionate but underdeveloped movement to reach its full potential. The Tea Party's goal for the new year should be to once again become a visible and vocal actor in American politics.

Claiming that the Tea Party needs to ramp things up again is not to say that the movement hasn't accomplished anything in the last few years. It does, however, mean that the Tea Party needs to return to its origins as a protest movement that exerts pressure on establishment politicians. The movement has had an influence at the ballot box, taking the House away from Democrats in 2010 and the Senate in 2014. However, electioneering has become the main, if not only, function of the movement. Instead of switching back and forth from protest to electioneering mode, the Tea Party needs to become a multi-faceted movement that constantly and relentlessly attacks its opponents from all angles. In the HBO miniseries "The Pacific", a character named Snafu gives advice that the Tea Party should follow. As Tea Partiers begin to undo Progressives' agenda -- something that has been in the works for a century -- their opponents will get even nastier, as difficult as that is to imagine.  To combat this, Tea Partiers need to be willing to fight.

Texas Tea Party, Texas Third Party

By Donald Mellon

The establishment Republican Party has declared war on the Tea Party. But the fate of the Tea Party and the country are intertwined such that the destruction of the Tea Party will also ensure the continued march toward the economic collapse of the country and the loss of liberty and property to follow. This article will suggest a possible response to this declaration of war.

The establishment has convinced Jeb Bush to throw his hat into the presidential ring. He will be a heavily funded candidate representing the Washington establishment and their well funded supporters. Recent polls (Dec 2014) have him trailing only Mitt Romney who will probably not run if Jeb Bush is the likely Republican candidate. The stated intent of Mr. Bush is to win the nomination and the general election without ever obtaining Tea Party support which will allow him to govern without any consideration for the Tea Party conservative principles of free markets, fiscal responsibility, and limited constitutional government.

The Tea Parties have a choice to make. They can remain the much maligned conservative wing of the Republican Party, they can wither and die, or they can fight back.

Applause for the Mellon Initiative

By Lee Cary

The Tea Parties have a choice to make. They can remain the much maligned conservative wing of the Republican Party, they can wither and die, or they can fight back.”  Dr. Donald Mellon, “Texas Tea Party, Texas Third Party,” December 27, 2014

Dr. Mellon is right.  And the stakes are every bit as high as he states in his recent TeaParty911.com article:

“The establishment Republican Party has declared war on the Tea Party. But the fate of the Tea Party and the country are intertwined such that the destruction of the Tea Party will also ensure the continued march toward the economic collapse of the country and the loss of liberty and property to follow.”

The GOP Establishment and the legacy liberal media are collaborating, for different motives, to promote Jeb Bush to be the next McRomney-like GOP Presidential candidate.

Ted Cruz Was Right, Again

The usual suspects are attacking Ted Cruz for doing his job.

Republicans and a chorus of conservative commentators are dumping on the sole conservative Republican senator from Texas because – the horror! – he dared to force his Senate colleagues to publicly take sides on President Obama's shameful extralegal unilateral immigration amnesty.

Apologists for Republican cowardice claim to be upset with Cruz because, as they claim, his parliamentary maneuvers to stymie the amnesty somehow allowed some objectionable Obama nominees to move forward in the confirmation process.

Of course, they're lying.

Obama's Amnesty and the Democrats' War on Black Americans

by Lee Cary

Obama’s proclamation of amnesty to illegal aliens is just the latest step in a long-running war conducted by Democrats against American citizens of African descent.

But, there are early signs that the African-American community is waking up to the decades-long, false claim by Democrats, heralded since the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as being the political party most concerned with the condition of Blacks.

Obama’s dictatorial edict granting functional amnesty to millions of Hispanic illegal immigrants is not being well-received by some African-Americans who feel betrayed by the first Black President. 

Perhaps now they’ll pause to glance back over the last 50 years and compare Democrat promises made to the “Black community” – in exchange for their votes – against historical outcomes in the freedoms generously bestowed by Democrats on African-Americans.

The GOP's Pivotal Years: 2015-2016

"There is a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries." ~ (Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, Act 4, Scene 3)

It is on such a full sea that the Grand Old Party will be afloat in 2015-2016. And it must take the current when it serves, or lose its ventures. The two years ahead are pivotal years for the Republican Party, perhaps for a generation. What the party does, in the closing two years of a failing and dangerous Obama Presidency, will define its foreseeable future.

The GOP's major challenge is to transition from a party of tepid opposition, to the party of resistance that aims to significantly mitigate, and reverse, the impact of a far-left President undaunted in his zeal to continue fundamentally transforming America, even after his party suffered devastating defeats in the midterm elections.

It's no secret that the Republicans did well in the recent midterm elections mostly because of the "R" behind their candidates' names. Many voted against Democrats as much as they voted for Republicans.

That's reason enough to celebrate the outcome in November 2014. But the tide in the affairs of politics by 2016 will have become high. By then, the nation will be more aware of the array of severe problems we face in every national-issue venue: federal debt, international relations, national unity, public education, healthcare...the list goes on, too long.

Republican candidates will not be able to win elections in 2016 on the basis of not being Democrats. That won't be good enough.

Rush Limbaugh: "Texas Had a War on Liberals" with Konni Burton's Election to Wendy Davis' Seat

AUSTIN, Texas -- For many conservatives in Texas and around the country, Democrat Wendy Davis' loss last Tuesday to Republican Greg Abbott came with an extra reason to celebrate: Davis' seat was won by tea party favorite Konni Burton, a Republican from Colleyville. Monday morning, conservative talk radio star Rush Limbaugh joined the chorus of voices singing Burton's praises and rejoicing in her victory.

In contrast to Davis, who rose to fame after filibustering against Texas' abortion bill, Burton is staunchly pro-life, as well as deeply conservative on fiscal issues. She was endorsed by Texas Senator Ted Cruz and won the enthusiastic support of grassroots conservatives around the state. When the final votes were tallied, Burton had defeated her opponent, Democrat Libby Willis, by more than eleven thousand votes, a 52.19 percent to 45.44 percent margin.

In the Morning Update segment of his Monday morning show, Limbaugh discussed how Davis -- who was supposed to be the "noble liberal warrior" fighting for the Democrats -- was not just crushed in the Governor's race, but also now has to see her seat taken by a tea party activist. Limbaugh described how "big out-of-state money kept on pouring in" to support Davis' campaign "despite one embarrassing misstep after another," but ultimately "it wasn't even close" with Abbott winning by twenty points, including winning 52 percent of women.
