Tea Party on Townhall

  • Daniel J. Mitchell
    I’ve warned that it’s never a good idea to assume top-down conspiracies when corruption, incompetence, politics, ideology, greed, and self-interest are better explanations for what happens in Washington. ... more

    Political affiliations aside, everyone should be worried about the IRS scandal. John touched base with a tea-party activist, and talked about the impropriety on display at the IRS. Also: John McCain grilled the CEO of Apple over their tax “avoidance” practices. (Because the problem couldn’t possibly be the tax code, it is obviously Apple’s adherence to the law.) ... more

    Ken Boehm, Chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center, joined the program to discuss the ongoing IRS scandal. It turns out the IRS was more-than-friendly with Obama’s half Brother (and his charity) while they were targeting conservative groups for audits. ... more

    Freedom of the press included the press freedom to obfuscate for and excuse Obama and Holder while the administration was suppressing those other parts of the First Amendment that apparently has nothing to do with the press at all: freedom of religion, freedom of speech, the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. ... more

    In an ideal situation, the fake “Tea Party” candidate would actually be successful in their primary bid, and then lose in the general election. ... more

    Even though it changed the terms of the political debate, thus giving them a majority in the 2010 elections, many in the Republican establishment deeply resent the Tea Party. ... more

    Hatch said that he is headed to a primary because the influence of what he called outside groups who he characterized as “ultra-liars”. ... more

    The last thing the incumbents in Congress will do is to change the rules in a way that might level the playing field between themselves and challengers, leading to an almost 100% reelection rate even though Congress, as a body, suffers from a pathetic 11% approval rating. Therefore, Lessig is proposing to call an Article V convention to end run the Congress. So is Olafson in his effort to take away Congress’s credit cards. ... more

    That’s an evolutionary development in our form of government; and the Tea Party can trace its evolution in some sense right back to the Republican Revolution of 1994, led by Newt Gingrich, who tapped into public feelings of government overreach and reckless spending by Clin-trons Version 1.0, all-socialist, all-the-time. ... more

    I liked the idea back then- and oh, it seems so long ago- that our economy was so strong that teachers didn’t go on strike and that pension plans were generous. I liked the idea that we had peace. And when we couldn’t have peace abroad, we generally had it at home. ... more

    One week after Democrats drove us to the brink of default because they wouldn’t cut the U.S. budget deficit, White House officials tried to blame everyone from ratings agencies to the Tea Party for the economic woes they created. By my math, that makes the Tea Party 100 percent OK with me. ... more

    Slowly but surely the Tea Party Republican coalition is turning the tide on spending. Too bad President Obama was out once again this week attacking millionaires, billionaires, businesses, and oil and gas with his usual soak-the-rich class-warfare redistributionism. This kind of politics has helped generate a capital strike by profitable and cash-rich businesses. ... more

    The public wants deep spending cuts. That’s their first priority and that’s why polls overwhelmingly show opposition to a debt-ceiling increase. So regarding those spending cuts, the only thing that matters is the first-year spending decline. ... more
