On Wednesday, the House Oversight Committee held a hearing on the IRS’ targeting of conservative non-profit applicants. The hearing, led by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), quickly devolved into chaos after former IRS official Lois Lerner repeatedly used the Fifth Amendment to avoid answering questions about her involvement in the targeting. When Issa rose for adjournment, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) went berserk: “I am tired of this. You cannot just have a one-sided investigation. There is absolutely something wrong with that, and it is absolutely un-American.” When Issa maintained that Cummings had asked no questions, Cummings said, “Chairman, what are you hiding?”
Afterward, Issa approached the media and explained, “He was talking into a mic in an adjourned meeting. The fact is Mr. Cummings came to make a point of his objections to the process we have been going through. He was actually slandering me at the moment that the mics did go off by claiming that this had not been a real investigation.”
But Cummings does not care about the truth. Nor does he care about the rise of an arbitrary and capricious executive branch willing to manipulate the law at will. For too many Democrats, America under President Obama has become a government of men, not of laws – and they’re just fine with that. Read m ore at breitbart.com.

Florida Democrat Alan Grayson is under investigation for domestic violence according to a statement from Capt. Angelo Nieves of Florida’s Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
Along with submitting pictures which reportedly support the allegations, Grayson’s wife also alleges that Grayson told her he would leave her “In the gutter” with nothing in the presence of the couple’s young children.
Grayson co-sponsored the 2013 re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act.
Grayson’s wife Lolita, who also recently filed for divorce, claiming their 24 year marriage is “irretrievably broken,” claims Congressman Grayson “pushed her against a door, causing her to fall to the ground, during a confrontation Saturday at their home on Oak Park Road.” Read more at: breitbart.com.

As owner of a business that delivers healthcare Obama’s budget has me chomping at the bit to grow, expand, explode with new jobs! Good luck with that…
“President Obama unveiled an ambitious $3.9 trillion budget blueprint Tuesday that seeks billions of dollars in fresh spending to boost economic growth but also pledges to tame the national debt by raising taxes on the wealthy, slashing payments to health providers and overhauling the nation’s immigration laws.”
VOTE: CITY OF GAINESVILLE COMMISSION
The Todd Chase Campaign from District 2, The Craig Carter Campaign from District 3 and The Annie Orlando Campaign , At-Large, have put party politics aside and appear to be the only candidates who care about ALL the voters. They were the only campaigns to inquire about what concerns many of the Gainesville Tea Party supporters had about the future of the city.
Remember Obama’s comment to Putin caught on a microphone left turned on? “I will have much more flexibility after I get elected”. And so it starts – the takeover of Eastern Europe. And to where will it lead? The eventual takeover of Western Europe?
“It appears that Russia has taken control of Crimea without firing a shot and is referring to it as the “Autonomous Republic of Crimea,” presumably with the intention of making it a puppet state of Moscow.”

Rick Santelli’s Rant Feb., 2009
Hat Tip: rightwisconsin.com
February 27, 2014: Mark Levin, aka The Great One, was the keynote speaker at today’s event celebrating the fifth anniversary Tea Party movement. Levin both thanked and congratulated those of us in this fight to regain our lost liberties, and he encouraged and implored us to keep up the struggle.
As you read these excerpts from Mark’s speech and watch this moving video, you will see that true conservatives in the sixties and seventies faced the same struggles with the so-called establishment, that tea party and other true conservatives face today. Stand tall my fellow warriors, he’s speaking of you!
“…The Tea Party movement is the only thing left that stands between what remains of our Republic and the tyranny of runaway government. And I say this from the bottom of my heart and my soul, and I thank you. You are the citizens from all walks of life and from every corner of the country, who possess the spirit and enthusiasm of the Founding Fathers, proclaim the principles of individual liberty and unalienable rights as set forth in our Declaration, and insist on the Federal Government’s compliance with the Constitution’s limits. You are astutely aware of the peril of the moment, and all that is at stake. And for this, you are smeared, and attacked by the ruling class, Democrats and Republicans alike, by the media from the New York Slimes to the Wall Street Journal, and countless others who are dragging this nation into the abyss. And I know that at times you wonder if we will be able to reverse course, you wonder if it’s all worth it, you wonder if you should live quiet lives among friends and tend to your own needs. But I also know you’re Americans and you cannot be idle and you will not be silenced while a relative handful of self-aggrandizing masterminds seek to lord over you and your fellow citizens. You will not let your country fail…”
“…You see Ronald Reagan was not part of the establishment, he was an outsider. And like you and so many others throughout history, he had the courage to stand up and be counted. And for this, also like you, Reagan and his supporters were disparaged and dismissed by the same ruling class…”
Levin then recited this quote from George Will, 1974:
“…Reagan is 63 and he looks it. His hair is so remarkably free of gray, but around the mouth and neck, he looks like an old man. He has never demonstrated substantial national appeal. His hardcore support today consists primarily of the Kamikaze Conservatives who thought the 1960 Goldwater campaign was jolly fun. And there is reason to doubt that Reagan is well suited to appeal to the electorate that just produced a Democratic landslide…”
I never thought I would be saying this but: How sad that we must fight not for new freedoms, nor to rise to new heights, but to maintain what we already have; and to reclaim what we once had, but lost. - ADB

Young Republican official: Tea Party is full of drooling, senile angry bullies who are ‘mad at everything’; Update: Tweets deleted.
Nothing gets establishment GOPers more animated than the chance to trash conservatives who actually want to take back the country from socialist statists, rather than just manage the decay and benefit from crony capitalism. The latest kerfuffle between those who lovingly embrace the status quo and the “radical” Tea Party began with a debate between Breitbart.com writer Brandon Darby and Sen. John McCain campaign consultant John Weaver, who orchestrated such resounding conservative victories as John McCain 2000 and John McCain 2008. Read more at: Michelle Malkin’s twitchy.com.
A man videotaping Baltimore County police as they arrested two people was approached by at least two different officers and not only angrily threatened with arrest, but told he had no rights.
The man asked the officers several times what he was doing wrong. When he tried to remind them “I have my rights,” things quickly went downhill, with one angry cop responding: “You just lost them.” continue reading at: ijreview.com.
“The liberal defenders of government power attack concentrations of wealth, but in the true concentration of wealth is not found in the hands of a few billionaires, but in the hands of the government.”
“The editorialists talk about income inequality and the 1 percent, but they focus on individuals rather than institutions, and it is the concentration of wealth and power in institutions that threaten civil liberties.
The top 10 wealthiest men and women in America barely have 250 billion dollars between them. Federal budgets run into the trillions of dollars, and the national debt approaches 15 trillion dollars. And that’s not taking into account state budgets.”
“That is the difference between the wealth wielded by the 10th wealthiest man in America, and the mayor of a single city. And that is the real concentration of wealth. Not in the hands of individuals, but at every level of government, from the municipal to the state houses to the White House.”
Want to unseat Eric Cantor? Here’s your chance – the Republican primary in the the Seventh Congressional District of Virginia. Congressman Cantor is being challenged by Dave Brat, an economics professor and past Chair of the Department of Economics and Business at Randolph-Macon College.
According to Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon:
“One of the inspirations of the tea party movement was to actually take individuals who were not career politicians and have them jump in as citizen legislators and join the vocal process.” David Brat, a professor who chaired the Department of Economics and Business at Randolph-Macon College, is “jumping in” in a big way.”
This your chance to be part of the 2014 national revolution against the progressive Republicans who consistent support higher taxes, deficit spending and increased regulations. Act now before we have lost all of our individual rights! Give time or give money. No amount is too small!!
