It has been almost five years since news broke that officials at the IRS used the power of government to harass members of the Tea Party and other conservative groups.

The media has largely ignored the scandal and so far, no one has gone to jail. Earlier this month, IRS officials claimed...

Last month, I reported that California’s lawmakers had approved a gas tax hike that was supposedly directed to funding the state’s infrastructure repair and maintenance programs.

However, one Republican assemblyman suspects that Californians are unhappy with this particular piece of legislation and would be willing to repeal it if given...

It is astonishing how much is being revealed about the “Deep State” since Donald Trump was inaugurated less than two months ago.

This week, Wikileaks published almost 9,000 documents from the CIA about the agency’s own malware used to hack into anyone’s electronics make it look like the cyber-attack came from Russia.

While I’m enjoying the progressive meltdown as much as the next person, it may be time to think about countering the “resistance.”  We would do well to think about the impact the pressure from the raging “resistance” is likely to have not on their own party but on Republicans in Congress...

Kimberley Strassel over at the Wall Street Journal has some good advice for the “progressive tea party” “resistance” “movement”:  don’t go down the path you’re on because it’s based on a fundamentally flawed understanding of the Tea Party.

Strassel writes:

I’m not sure whether to be pleased or amused that we were so successful that the progressive left is now trying to recreate and manufacture a progressive version of our truly grassroots Tea Party movement.

One aspect of their inchoate “resist we much” campaign to recreate our powerful movement is the left’s ...

As someone who, both individually and on the website, participated in the Tea Party surge culminating in the retaking of the House in November 2010, I saw first hand how viciously the Tea Party was attacked.

I attended the Tax Day Tea Party rally in Corning, NY, on April 15, 2009, Looking At...

Every now and then, I like to check on the state of reporting as it relates to the Tea Party…for entertainment purposes. I have decided that if any actual fact is offered in the elite media stories, it is purely coincidental.

Today’s review shows that after over 7 years of independent conservative...

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is stuck in 2009 when the whole “Tea Party is Racist” mantra was still alive and well.

The agency that handles hostile work environment claims is deciding whether Gadsden Flag paraphernalia ought to be considered racist.

Donald Trump’s quest for the Oval Office certainly has been fascinating.

This weekend, protesters in Arizona and their anti-Trump road blockage made for breathless press coverage. I suspect the organizers of that inanity are going to be shocked when they learn that it helped Trump win more votes and gave the business...

It turns out that our 2012 Tea Party event was, indeed, crashed by a D-list Hollywood celebrity wannabe!

The meeting, which focused on how citizen activists could counter false charges of racism, was crashed by a group of disruptors waving Confederate flags and holding White Power signs.

Last night, the organizers of the San Diego area’s first “Tea Party” event gathered together for a Beer Caucus.
