Boehner, Rove, And Chamber Wage Big-Moneyed Assault Against Tea Party

 

 

 

” Due to the surge in political involvement by every day citizens in the grassroots Tea Party movement, there was a shift in control in the House of Representatives. One-third of the Republican members of the House elected in 2010 were freshmen. They included Tea Party favorites Tim Huelskamp, Trey Gowdy, Tim Scott,  Justin Amash, Raul Labrador, and others. With this GOP takeover, those in the Tea Party movement had hope that Barack Obama’s far left agenda to ‘fundamentally transform America’ would be stopped. The then newly elected Speaker of the House, John Boehner, spoke a good game in support of the Tea Party movement. In an article published in December of 2010 in the New Yorker, Boehner was quoted standing strongly for the Tea Party, welcoming the influence these every day citizens would have in not just the political process, but in getting the Republican Party back to its conservative roots.

  Boehner’s praise and support of the grassroots Tea Party movement and those ushered into the House because of it eroded in two years.  In December of 2012, Boehner began his purge of conservatives from powerful committee positions. Since then, Boehner has ramped up his attack on the Tea Party into a very vocal and nasty display.

  In following Boehner’s lead of disdain for the Tea Party movement, FOX News Contributor Karl Rove has moved his attack on the Tea Party away from the white board on FOX News to using his often praised by mostly failed organization American Crossroads. Earlier this year, Rove outright declared war on the Tea Party. News reports surfaced the day after Christmas that Rove is not only reloading in his war against the Tea Party, but is forming additional organizations to fool the people in donating, as reported in the New York Times.”

Al Sharpton’s Chicago Town Hall Erupts Into Anti-Machine Revolt

 

 

 

 

 

Published on Dec 21, 2013

” This past Thursday, a town hall meeting hosted by Al Sharpton and the National Action Network to address gun violence exploded into a revolt against “Chicago Machine” politics, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and black alderman in City Hall with panel and audience members calling to vote out their elected officials. One 82-year-old preacher even called for “Tea Party” style meetings in some of Chicago’s south side communities such as Altgeld Gardens and Trumbull Park. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rye’s Racist Liberal Rant Shoved Back In Her Face By Black Conservative

 

Bogus Racism

 

 

” Angela Rye, the former Executive Director and General Counsel to the Congressional Black Caucus, has the nerve to label another entity as being racist. Of course, in America, organized black racism is largely accepted or tolerated and calling others racist because they oppose your socialist or racist agenda is generally accepted as well, but not by everybody.

  Republican strategist Ron Christie called Rye on her comments, and challenged not only her assertions against the tea party, which welcomes people of any race, but also challenged her on the still unsubstantiated spitting incident involving John Lewis (D-GA), and alleged use of the “n-word” on the day of the Obamacare vote. Christie was there that day and he says not only did he not hear it, but Lewis has refused to comment on it. Additionally, a $100,000 reward for proof that it happened which was offered by Andrew Brietbart went unclaimed. “

GOP Division Widens As Another Senator Girds For Battle With Tea Party Challenger

 

 

 

” A last-minute tea party primary challenge to Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn of Texas not only sent political shockwaves through the Lone Star State but signaled that the ongoing divide in the Republican Party would continue.

  Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, is aligned with the party’s hard-right faction, and his 2014 election challenge automatically puts pressure on Cornyn, who has tacked rightward for the last year since tea party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, won in 2012 as a political novice.

  At the same time, another Senate Republican leader up for re-election, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, is also facing a tea party opponent, putting the Senate’s top GOP leaders in the position of dealing with intra-party challenges next year as they guide the caucus.”

 

     We’re having a hard time deciding where we stand with this race . While Senator Cornyn has been portrayed as a “liberal” republican in the media for quite some time now and there are some votes , Patriot Act , etc. , that concern us , his overall voting record and ratings from some influential conservative organizations gives an impression of a fairly solid non-statist legacy . Is this a seat that the Tea Party , which we support whole-heartedly , should be spending large sums of time and money trying to overthrow ? 

    While we have no doubts as to the qualifications and integrity of Rep Stockman and support him in his efforts to reduce government we aren’t sure that now is the time to stir this pot . Thoughts anyone ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The IRS Stonewall

 

 

 

 

” Judicial Watch recently sued the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to force it to hand over “any and all” records related to the agency’s now-notorious witch hunt against conservative 501c4 nonprofit organizations in the nearly two years leading up to the 2012 presidential election. While the records are likely to provide some stunning revelations, the fact is that the IRS’ refusal to willingly hand over the records as required by law is equally revealing. As the late 60 Minutes producer George Crile sagely observed, “It’s not just the crime, it’s the cover-up that gets you in trouble.”

  In the case of the current IRS cover-up, the stonewalling began nearly six months ago when Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information (FOIA) request on the heels of an explosive May 14 Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) report revealing that the IRS had singled out groups with such conservative-sounding terms as “patriot” and “Tea Party” in their titles for special scrutiny when applying for tax-exempt status. The TIGTA probe determined: “Early in Calendar Year 2010, the IRS began using inappropriate criteria to identify organizations applying for tax-exempt status to (e.g., lists of past and future donors).” According to the report, the illegal IRS reviews continued for more than 18 months and “delayed processing of targeted groups’ applications” preparing for the 2012 presidential election.”

SNEAK PEEK: Crosshairs: The Internal Revenue Scandal

 

 

 

Published on Nov 23, 2013

” Now available on DVD. Order yours now at:http://IRSScandalMovie.com

  A new film from producer Gary S. Franchi Jr. and writer William N. Grigg | For taxpayers everywhere, terror is spelled I-R-S — but the Internal Revenue Service is much more than just the world’s most fearsome and ruthless tax collection agency. Current and former IRS officials have described how the agency literally considers itself to be at war with the tax-paying public. Leaked videos of IRS employee training sessions have revealed how agents have been taught to use unethical and illegal means to extract money from long-suffering taxpayers, and to retaliate against anybody — whether ordinary citizen or conscience-stricken agency employee — who objects.

  Since at least 2011, the IRS has carried out another role — that of harassing and persecuting the Obama administration’s political rivals, while granting special privileges to his allies. Anybody who belonged to a group with words like “Patriot” or “Tea Party” in its name found himself in the IRS’s cross-hairs.

  This illegal harassment wasn’t limited to one state, or one region — and it didn’t end with invasive questions about finances, donors, and membership lists. Like secret police investigators in a Communist country, IRS officials looking into the activities of pro-life activists scrutinized the “content of their prayers” for supposedly inappropriate political content, and even tried to impose limits on their peaceful outreach and activism.

  While the IRS was carrying out this campaign of persecution, its employees were spending tens of millions of dollars on extravagant employee retreats — and unlike common taxpayers, they weren’t required to keep track of their expenses. When they weren’t busy abusing taxpayers and wasting their money, unionized IRS employees were preparing for the most radical expansion of the agency’s mandate in its history, which will put it in charge of enforcing the new “Obamacare” law.

  That’s right: Under Obamacare, the IRS will have the power to make life-and-death decisions affecting every U.S. citizen — and the officials directly responsible for the harassment of the Tea Party movement will have critical roles in administering the new government-run health care system.

  How did we end up with the IRS? What are the dangers it represents to innocent taxpayers? What can be done to rein in that rogue agency — and is it possible for us to be rid of it completely? You owe it to yourself to see “Crosshairs: The Internal Revenue Scandal” — and to share what you learn with your friends and family. Your lives, and those of your loved ones, may literally depend on it. “

Obama Dismisses IRS Targeting Of Conservatives

 

Obama Hardball

 

 

 

” President Obama rejected the notion that the IRS’ targeting of Tea Party groups was illegal — or even improper — during his interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on Thursday.

  But the interview became interesting when the Hardball host asked why Americans were growing increasingly skeptical of government. Obama noted that the media never seems interested in government success stories. “When we do things right, they don’t get a lot of attention,” he said.”

 

 

   Perhaps Dear Leader would be so kind as to point out these elusive , ignored government triumphs … Well ? We’re waiting … and we’ll have a long wait , we’re sure . We are having a very difficult time recalling anything at all that the State has gotten right in our lifetime … excepting the occasional military accomplishment .

 

” OBAMA: That’s not — that’s not something that’s reported about. If, on the other hand, you’ve got an office in Cincinnati, in the IRS office that — I think, for bureaucratic reasons, is trying to streamline what is a difficult law to interpret about whether a nonprofit is actually a political organization deserves a tax exempt agency. And they’ve got a list, and suddenly everybody’s outraged.”

 

 

   With toadies such as “Tingles” Matthews controlling the mainstream airwaves it is impossible to imagine any government success stories that would be buried on page thirty six . 

   For those with a strong stomach below we have included the entire interview below .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MITCH MCCONNELL: TIME FOR GOP ESTABLISHMENT TO ‘STAND UP TO’ TEA PARTY

 

 

 

 

” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican up for re-election in 2014, told theWashington Examiner in an interview published Friday that he believes it is time for the GOP establishment to stop conservatives and Tea Partiers.”

 

     It comes down to arrogance and entitlement doesn’t it Mitch ? You think that you should be able to run unopposed by your own party by virtue of the fact that you’ve been in office so long . Think again . The Republican brand is supposed to thrive on competition and what’s good for us is good for your party .

 

” McConnell argued it is “utter nonsense” for groups like the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF), which has endorsed his primary challenger businessman Matt Bevin, to argue that Republicans like him in Congress are not fighting hard enough to defeat Democrats. In the interview, McConnell focused on deriding Tea Partiers for leading the effort to defund Obamacare—something that, coupled with the Democrats’ refusal to compromise on the soon-to-fail Obamacare, resulted in a government shutdown.

“The Senate Conservatives Fund is giving conservatism a bad name,” McConnell told the Examiner for the piece titled “The Establishment Fights Back: Mitch McConnell leads GOP battle against Tea Party insurgents.”

 

   Here’s a clue Mitch , the RINO’s are the ones that are giving conservatism a bad name . Through the auspices of your leadership along with John ( go along to get along) Boehner in the House the conservative brand has come to stand for … er ? Nothing . Well , that’s not entirely true , you guys stand for capitulation .

 

“They’re [SCF] participating in ruining the [Republican] brand,” McConnell said. “What they do is mislead their donors into believing the reason that we can’t get as good an outcome as we’d like to get is not because of a Democratic Senate and a Democratic president, but because Republicans are insufficiently committed to the cause—which is utter nonsense.”

 

    What has ruined the Republican brand is the fact that your party has shown itself to be little besides “Democrat Lite” and an ineffectual “Lite” at that . Say what you will about the Democrats but at least the have the courage of their convictions . Remember those ? Convictions ? The GOP establishment as embodied by the likes of you and John McCain , Lindsey Graham , John Boehner show us little in the way of conviction or core beliefs other than fighting off the fiscally responsible Tea Party caucus in your own party .

 

” McConnell had not only personally opposed, during the shutdown, the effort from Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) to defund Obamacare, he actually whipped votes against them, according to a Congressional source. Cruz and Lee had staked their battle on a key cloture vote that would have, if McConnell had united the Republican Party to deliver 41 votes against the use of taxpayer money to fund Obamacare, stopped Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid from using a procedural ploy to fund Obamacare with just 51 votes.”

 

    If only you and your appeasement minded cabal of establishment toadies put as much effort into defeating the Dems as you do the Tea Party maybe you would have some accomplishments to trumpet but as long as you insist on committing fratricide you doom your party to permanent minority status .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Tea Party

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tea Party At The Crossroads

 

 

” Third parties have had an unbroken record of failure in American presidential politics. So it was refreshing to see in the Tea Party an insurgent movement, mainly of people who were not professional politicians, but who nevertheless had the good sense to see that their only chance of getting their ideals enacted into public policies was within one of the two major parties.

More important, the Tea Party was an insurgent movement that was not trying to impose some untried Utopia, but to restore the lost heritage of America that had been eroded, undermined or just plain sold out by professional politicians.

What the Tea Party was attempting was conservative, but it was also insurgent — if not radical — in the sense of opposing the root assumptions behind the dominant political trends of our times. Since those trends have included the erosion, if not the dismantling, of the Constitutional safeguards of American freedom, what the Tea Party was attempting was long overdue.

ObamaCare epitomized those trends, since its fundamental premise was that the federal government had the right to order individual Americans to buy what the government wanted them to buy, whether they wanted to or not, based on the assumption that Washington elites know what is good for us better than we know ourselves.”

    The subject of the Tea Party and it’s future is very near and dear to our hearts and thus we would like to contribute to this piece in some meaningful way but thought it best to let the esteemed Professor Sowell have the stage all to himself . We are in no way presumptuous enough to assume that we could do much in the arena of debate to advance the genius that is Thomas Sowell so we are content to leave the words to him . 

 

Part Two of this piece can be found here . Here is a sample of part two :

 

” Friend and foe alike see the Tea Party as not just a bunch of politicians trying to stay in office, but people with a purpose beyond going along to get along. The left’s desperate — and dishonest — efforts to discredit the Tea Party show that they understand its threat to their expanding government agenda.

The question is whether the Tea Party itself still has its eye on the ball — the goals it was formed to serve — or is letting itself get preoccupied with its battle against other Republicans.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It Is Bigger Than You Think…

 

” An exclusive Esquire-NBC News survey shows us that everything we are told about politics in America today—that there is no middle ground between left and right, blue and red, us and them—is wrong. The data, compiled by the Benenson Strategy Group (pollster for Obama for America ’08 and ’12) and Neil Newhouse of Public Opinion Strategies (lead pollster for Romney for President), show us there is a large group of American voters—even a majority—who make up a New American Center that is passionate, persuadable, and very real. They are merely waiting for Washington to find them.”

 

1. THE CENTER IS FILLED WITH PEOPLE WHO DO NOT CONSIDER THEMSELVES THE CENTER.

 

” When we talk about the Center, we are not talking about some shapeless, shifting mass of voters who just can’t make up their minds about where they stand. They know what they stand for—nearly half the voters we identified in the Center even say they’re liberals or conservatives. (Hell, 15 percent of those in the Center say they are supporters of the Tea Party.) However, their views don’t neatly correspond to traditional definitions of liberal or conservative, creating a disjunction between where they think they are on the ideological spectrum and where they actually are.”

    This article has some interesting info-graphics and theories . On the other hand a careful reading of the details would tend to convince one that there is an agenda being put forth by Esquire that is not exactly coming from the center but perhaps a little left of it . Some of the info-graphics are likely the result of polling that may have been slanted in order to push a preconceived notion of exactly what constitutes the “center” . See for yourself , biased or not it is still worth your time .

We tend to agree with the sub-titled notion that the center is bigger than you think . Where we disagree is with the article’s definition of center . On certain issues it would seem that Esquire’s view of the center appears through Statist glasses . We on the other hand feel that the pendulum is swinging away from authoritarian worship and back towards the Founder’s principles of individual liberty and responsibility .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Terry McAuliffe Establishes Democrats As Party Of The Elites

 

 

 

” Democrat Terry McAuliffe beat Republican Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia’s governor race, outraising Cuccinelli nearly two-to-one and dominating in the richest part of the state.

First, upper-middle class, white suburbs have marched steadily toward the Democrats for several decades. Montgomery County, Md., and Arlington, Va., switched sides. So did the wealthy New York suburbs in Westchester County, N.Y., and Fairfield County, Conn. Philadelphia’s “collar counties,” once Republican bastions, are now Democratic bellwethers.

Why are the white-collar suburbs moving to the Dems? “I think it’s the social issues,” Bill DuBose tells me at Greenberry’s coffee shop in McLean.

The McLean Greenberry’s is the type of place where everyone knows the name of his state delegate. When I pulled into Greenberry’s, I parked between a Mercedes and a BMW.

Most families in McLean earn more than $200,000, according to the Census Bureau.

McLean has no use for Tea Partiers. If the Tea Party was about grabbing pitchforks and storming the castle, McLean is the castle.

McLean is the home to the ruling class. And Terry McAuliffe is the candidate of the ruling class.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Biden Decries Tea Party’s “Hostility To Science”

 

Biden Idiocy

 

” Speaking to a crowd in support of Virginia Democrat Terry McAuliffe Monday, Joe Biden once again disparaged a conservative movement about which he knows precious little.

In his effort to demonize McAuliffe’s Republican opponent in Tuesday’s gubernatorial race, Biden trashed the traditional values embodied by the Tea Party movement, implicitly describing those involved as uneducated rubes.

The statewide race “has captured the attention of the entire nation,” he said, claiming the reason is a widespread disapproval of “the new Republican tea party.”

He went on to describe the patriotic movement as one in which “social recidivism is only outgunned by its hostility to science and technology and innovation and scholarship.” “

 

   Crazy Uncle Joe must not have gotten the memo , but then again we guess it’s hard to stay informed when you spend most of your time locked in the basement .

On another note , what does it say about the dem’s confidence in their candidate if the feel the need to let Uncle Joe grab the mic ? He was certainly “without exaggeration” spreading the manure far and wide .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Video Evidence Obama Is Related To Sgt. Schultz

 

” We now have irrefutable proof that President Obama is a distant relative to Sgt. Schultz from Hogan’s Heroes. They both know NOTHING.”

     He knows nothing . He gets his news from the MSM like everybody else , so how could he know about Fast & Furious , Solyndra , the IRS scandal , Benghazi or any other of the “faux scandals” dreamt up in Al Gore’s playground ? It’s not like he has some vast surveillance apparatus at his disposal or anything .

Obama’s Fingerprints All Over IRS Tea Party Scandal

 

 

 

 

” It’s past time for the media to begin asking President Obama tough questions about the IRS conservative targeting scandal.  After all he was involved, publicly, from the beginning.

Last Friday, the American Center for Law and Justice (where I serve as Chief Counsel) filed its Second Amended Complaint against the United States, the IRS, and a legion of IRS officials.  This Complaint , in which we represent 41 organizations in 22 states, presents perhaps the most complete story yet of the IRS conservative targeting scandal.

What was sold to the American public as a low-level scandal perpetrated by a few rogue employees – a scandal stopped after senior officials became aware and asserted control – is now (to borrow a Watergate phrase) “no longer operative.”

Instead, we detail a long-running assault on the Tea Party, beginning shortly after its emergence in 2009, that is empowered, encouraged, and orchestrated not only by senior IRS officials in Washington, but also through outright targeting by the White House, Congressional Democrats, and the mainstream media.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yale Professor Shocked To Find Out Tea Party Better At Science

 

 

 

” A Yale professor, Dan Kahan, tested 2,000 people and made a surprise discovery, which he said embarrassed him. People who identify themselves as members of the Tea Party do better at science than non Tea party members. Kahan admitted that he didn’t know anyone from the Tea party and got all of his information on them from liberal cable shows and the New York Times, The Huffington Post and Politico.

Kahan claims that liberals are more science savvy than conservatives. But surprisingly, he found that Tea party members were the most savvy of them all. Moreover the findings surpassed the threshold of statistically significance.”

Republican Winners Of The Shutdown Standoff

 

 

 

” “There are no winners here,” President Obama declared today as he took a victory lap at the final passage of a clean continuing resolution to end the 16-day government shutdown.

There are some early winners — but not necessarily among the key players in the standoff.

Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas) fundraising was a winner, pulling in $1.19 million through his re-election committee and PAC in the last quarter, which included his September marathon speech on the Senate floor, and gathering a lengthy campaign mailing list from more than 2 million petition signatures at the Don’t Fund Obamacare site. But there aren’t indications that the presumed 2016 hopeful has done anything to win votes in a general national election. It also uncertain how Cruz’s young Senate career will proceed or be perceived over the next few years — he’s introduced nine standalone bills and resolutions in the 113th Congress, two of those dealing with the repeal or defunding of Obamacare. A Pew Research Center for the People and the Press survey released Wednesday confirmed that Cruz’s popularity has soared among the Tea Party, but unfavorable ratings for the Tea Party movement are the highest ever at 49 percent.

Asked by Politico who the winners of the shutdown were, Rep. Tom Rooney (R-Fla.) replied, “The people that managed to raise a lot of money off this.”

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) has been a potential rising star in his own right but shaped up in the standoff as Cruz’s No. 2 despite his call for a defunding of Obamacare in the next spending bill at the beginning of July.

And House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) outcome remains to be seen. He’s safe in his speakership, but threw up the white flag to end the shutdown after he couldn’t bring his final compromise to the floor for a lack of caucus support. “We fought the good fight; we just didn’t win,” Boehner said, failing to note it wasn’t exactly a fight he was looking to pick.

Yet there are some Republicans who have come out ahead over the course of the shutdown.”

Brit Hume Has About One Of The Best Takes On The Tea Party Out There

 

 

 

 

” Fox News’ Brit Hume has about one of the fairest assessments of the tea party out there. Hume explains why the tea party is going to extraordinary lengths to attempt to roll back government, and why that makes the tea party different from establishment Republicans.

Hume argued that tea party supporters are using an unconventional approach because the GOP has “utterly failed” to restrain the growth of government:

“Veteran political observers on both the left and right are still trying to figure out what the House Tea Party caucus and its Senate pied piper Ted Cruz were thinking when they insisted on using the threat of a government shutdown to defund ObamaCare. “

Bozell, Varney Discuss Networks’ Nearly 3-Month Blackout of Damning Revelations in IRS Scandal

 

 

” An incredulous Stuart Varney brought NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell on his Varney & Co. program this morning to discuss how  “[t]he mainstream media [have been] completely ignoring one the the biggest news stories of the year,” by devoting zero news stories to the IRS scandal since July.

“Is that accurate, they haven’t even mentioned it since those dates we put up on the screen?!” Varney asked Bozell at the segment. “It’s fascinating and so troubling” because we have “one of the greatest abuses in my lifetime, the greatest abuse of federal power ever, where you’re using the most-feared arm of government  against the people and you’re seeing one revelation after another” which the networks simply refuse to cover. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The IRS Intervened in Tea Party Elections

” Did the IRS intervene in Federal election campaigns for Congress? According to the Washington Times, U.S. Treasury investigative special agent Dennis Martel has uncovered a new example of political abuse. 

On March 9, 2010, Christine O’Donnell’s personal income tax records were illegally accessed by a Delaware public official. Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) reports that a previously-undisclosed “back door” to the IRS computer system was used to invade the privacy of Christine O’Donnell’s tax records.

Who knew? It turns out that state government criminal investigators can directly — though illegally — access IRS records through a “back door.” Along with O’Donnell, at least four other political candidates and four conservative donors have been identified so far as victims of this abuse.

A Congressional investigation of the IRS “back door” conducted by Sen. Charles Grassley [R - IA] is now under way. However, even Grassley, Martel, and the Washington Times have not yet put all the pieces together.

Christine O’Donnell ran against Joe Biden for that same office in 2008. Most of O’Donnell’s extended family got audited by the IRS right after Uncle Joe was sworn in as V.P. in January 2009. She is one of six siblings. The statistical probability of so many relatives being suddenly audited all together is like a dozen lightning strikes.”

IBD/TIPP Poll: Obama’s Approval Dives To Record Low

” President Obama’s approval rating tumbled to a record low as Americans react to the government’s sweeping surveillance programs and other scandals, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Presidential Lead
ership Index.

The Presidential Leadership Index fell to 43.2 from 48.9 a month earlier, th lowest since Obama took office. The 11.7% monthly decline also was his worst ever. It’s the fourth straight reading below 50, signaling disapproval . “

Tea Party Rally Draws Modest Crowd On Capitol Hill

 

 

” A modest crowd of Tea Party enthusiasts descended on Washington in this afternoon’s “Audit the IRS” rally on Capitol Hill.

“There’s some people who want to write the obituary for the Tea party,” Mike Needham, CEO of the Heritage Foundation’s Heritage Action for America group, told the audience.

“But the Tea Party is alive and well. We are going to write the obituary for big government,” Needham said.”
