On Monday, April 14th former ACORN whistleblower and True the Vote spokesperson Anita Moncrief announced the launching of a new PAC, The Black Conservatives Fund:
“I am proud to be on the board of a new PAC, The Black Conservative Fund. BCF will support black conservative and Republican candidates. We are also focusing on education, training, challenging race baiters/hustlers and working together to improve our communities.
“Our website http://blackconservativesfund.com is live and our proud board members are: Ken Blackwell, CL Bryant, Sonnie Johnson, Erik Rush, Kevin Daniels, Princella Smith, KCarl Smith, Alfonzo Rachel, Ron Miller, myself and others.”
The press release announcing the launch stated the following: Black Conservatives Fund is committed to supporting black conservatives who are dedicated to spreading the message of limited government and traditional values. The organization will support candidates through direct contributions in addition to web, TV, and radio advertisements, conducting get-out-the-vote drives, and funding other activities that BCF endorsed candidates may need. “All across America, black conservatives are running for office in record numbers. The lock that the liberals have held on the black vote is slowly but surely breaking,” said Anita Moncrief, a founding member of BCF’s board of advisors. You may find the complete press release here.
The BCF came out slugging and wasted no time announcing that the first two candidates it is supporting are T. W. Shannon, running for Congress from Oklahoma, and Mia Love, running a second campaign for Congress from Utah.

Fox News: Citizens put in the crosshairs of their own government – how could this be happening in America?
From the ATF to Homeland Security to environmental agencies, powerful forces are turning against Americans who thought the government was on their side.
The truth is, even in the representative democracy of the United States of America, if the government goes after you it can be a nightmare.
In this Fox News special, the Fox News Reporting team uncovers several alarming stories of government officials taking on private citizens who don’t believe they did anything wrong.
And that’s what makes it so scary – if it could happen to them, it could happen to anyone.
As you watch this presentation, please keep the following quote in mind:
“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.” – Thomas Jefferson
Here is the complete Fox News Special broken down into six YouTube segments by the Mass Tea Party. The documentary first aired on Saturday, March 5th, 2014. Truth is stranger than fiction – and scarier:
Introduction and The Sagebrush Rebellion- Part 1
IRS Targeting – Part 1
IRS Targeting – Part 2
The Sagebrush Rebellion- Part 2 and Conclusion
A Tea Party candidate became the first ever state senator in Pennsylvania to win as a write-in candidate on Tuesday in a special election that showed how dissatisfied voters are, even at the local level, with both organized political parties.
During the campaign, conservative Republican Scott Wagner was blistered by establishment Republicans that he accused of “orchestrating the special election in such a way to hand the seat, vacated by Mike Waugh in January,” to the establishment Republican candidate Ron Miller.

Conservative scholar and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza on Friday debuted a new trailer for his upcoming film “America” at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
The trailer depicts George Washington shot on a Revolutionary War battlefield and presumably dying…
Building on Sen. Ted Cruz’s use of Dr. Seuss’ ‘Green Eggs and Ham” during his recent Defund Obamacare filibuster, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin read her own version of this kids’ classic to an animated CPAC 2014 audience:

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.

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.
How proud I am to be a Reagan heir!
“Say again? The Tea Party’s reason for being is to support “fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and free market economic policies” — and this makes it racist? And worse? Where have we heard this before?
If you guessed the Reagan era you would be right. Yes indeed, Ronald Reagan was accused of racism — among all manner of other things — for supporting exactly what the Tea Party supports: fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free market economic policies.
As the Tea Party prepares to celebrate its fifth anniversary, it’s exactly the moment to note that this is a group of Americans who in fact can lay legitimate claim to being called “Reagan’s Heirs” — the ideological descendants of the ideas identified with the man Americans rank as the nation’s greatest president.
The Tea Party is nothing more threatening than groups of like-minded Americans who are deeply concerned their country is being run off the fiscal cliff.”
FCC to monitor news rooms? Adds new meaning to “State Run Media.” Hammer and sickle!
The Obama FCC will start policing newsrooms recommending what the organizations should report on.
The Wall Street Journal: News organizations often disagree about what Americans need to know. MSNBC, for example, apparently believes that traffic in Fort Lee, N.J., is the crisis of our time. Fox News, on the other hand, chooses to cover the September 2012 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi more heavily than other networks. The American people, for their part, disagree about what they want to watch.
But everyone should agree on this: The government has no place pressuring media organizations into covering certain stories.
Unfortunately, the Federal Communications Commission, where I am a commissioner, does not agree. Last May the FCC proposed an initiative to thrust the federal government into newsrooms across the country. With its “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs,” or CIN, the agency plans to send researchers to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run. A field test in Columbia, S.C., is scheduled to begin this spring.

Pat Caddell said yesterday on Fox News that the reason Republican leadership hasn’t pushed for a high level investigation of the IRS for targeting the Tea Party is because they want the IRS to go after the Tea Party:
When you have 71 percent who want an investigation, 64 percent who believe it is a sign of corruption including nearly a majority of Democrats, the reason is the establishment Republicans want the IRS to go after the Tea Party. Got it? They want them to go after the Tea Party because the Tea Parties are an outside threat to their power hold. And I’m telling you the lobbying consulting class of the Republican Party or Republican leadership who have been attacking the Tea Party and alienating them, they want the IRS to do this! therightscoop.com.

On his Tuesday radio show following the U.S. House of Representative’s 221-201 vote to allow a so-called clean hike in the federal government’s borrowing limit, conservative talker took aim at the Republican leadership and other Republican members in the House for going along and voting for the hike.
