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.

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.

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

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