HARVARD PROF: TEA PARTY NOT GOING ANYWHERE, MORE LIKELY TO WIN

A government and sociology professor at Harvard writes that the Tea Party is more likely than not to "win in the end" in an age when Americans are becoming more removed from Washington and distrusting the federal government and their elected officials. 

"Tea Party forces will still win in the end," Theda Skocpol writes, unless moderate Republicans can defeat them. Skocpol concedes that the Tea Party "will triumph just by hanging on long enough" as Americans are getting fed up by "our blatantly manipulated democracy and our permanently hobbled government."

The article, "Why The Tea Party Isn't Going Anywhere," was first published in the journalDemocracy, and later reprinted in The Atlantic

Despite the fact that Democrats, the mainstream media, and the Republican establishment again were predicting the "demise of the Tea Party" immediately after the government shutdown ended, Skocpol doesn't believe so.

Woo hoo!! Wolverine!! Let freedom ring!!!!!!!!!!!
MESSAGE TO CONGRESSMEN/WOMEN:



Hello, I am an angry voter! Before it is too late I feel the need to be the whistleblower! I am petitioning you to do several things:

•​Audit the Fed to enforce transparency and to stop printing money out of thin air! (I support Senator Rand Paul's positions). The Federal Reserve’s actions creates cycles of economic boom followed by economic destruction. Nowhere in human history has an endless printing of a nation’s currency produced a positive final result. “Quantitative Easing” 1,2,3,4 creates bubbles in the stock market, such as it currently lifting the Dow above 16000 before it severely crashes. America has an illusion of economy recovery because of the actions of the Federal Reserve - not a real recovery. Meanwhile, our elected officials point to the stock market and claim credit for “success”- it is a lie! Peter Schiff of Euro Pacific Capital is correct: http://www.europac.net/commentaries/bens_rocket_nowhere . The federal reserve is nothing but a Ponzi scheme! We *have been* the world’s reserve currency of choice since the end of WWII, however, the federal reserve's reckless policy of financial folly has resulted in other nations moving to unseat, undermine, undercut the middleman(the U.S. dollar) by making direct agreements with nations other than the U.S.A. to eliminate the need for our currency for trade(i.e. B.R.I.C. nations. Brazil, Russia, India, China). This can be appropriately labeled as currency wars. America’s debt is 17 trillion dollars and exploding. America’s adversaries do not need to defeat us militarily, they are waiting for us to go bankrupt! As soon as the U.S. dollar is dethroned as the world’s reserve currency by a new world order, expect the value of the American dollar to crash, along with the stock market and pensioner’s 401k’s – expect the next great depression and hyperinflation! (history’s examples: Weimar Republic, Zimbabwe). Source http://www.businessinsider.com/worst-hyperinflation-episodes-in-his... . History such as the great depression eventually repeats itself, especially when we do not learn from our mistakes! Americans will need a wheelbarrow of cash to buy a loaf of bread! –AUDIT THE FED!!!

•​Hold the democrat liars who sold Obamacare to the American people accountable -including the socialist, marxist, communist, fascist, "Saul Alinsky", crises creator-("never let a crises go to waste"), "boil the frog slowly"-(the American people that is!), "make it hurt"-(closing the veteran's WWII memorial while Pelosi stages an illegal immigrant rally on the mall during the shutdown on the same day!), federal deficit ballooner, phony president and his administration (what the president says and does do not match!!). - I still remember the ties Obama had to Reverend Jeremiah Wright and the domestic terrorist Bill Ayers!

•​Enforce Congress and the President to live by the same laws you impose on the American people (i.e. Obamacare).

•​Impeach the president, uphold and defend the constitution and the bill of rights as it was originally written (impeaching the president and upholding defending the constitution/bill of rights are related!).

•​Call a Constitution Article V Convention of States for the purpose of limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government! WWW.CONVENTIONOFSTATES.COM

•​Reign in the executive branch overreach of authority and privilege! He has unconstitutionally legislated by executive order! What is the president going to do next week, month or year?? - Create and incite a national crisis as an excuse to declare martial law so he can crown himself a dictator?? What about about Obama creating the crisis of bankrupting this nation by deliberately doubling the national deficit during his presidency?! - An insidiously subversive, “trojan horse” president, politically funded by the anti-american billionaire George Soros, a known communist, socialist, currency manipulator! - Most of the democratic party is bought and paid for! http://pro.stansberryresearch.com/1310PSIEANEW/LPSIPC06/?h=true - For the preservation of American Freedoms and the American way of life IMPEACH THIS PRESIDENT NOW!!!!

•​Hold the failures of the Bengazi scandal accountable (especially the president and Hillary Clinton).

•​Hold the NSA domestic spying on American citizens without probable cause scandal accountable (4th amendment violation).

•​Impeach Eric Holder for the Fast and Furious scandal.

• Hold the parties responsible for the IRS targeting of political opposition groups/persons

•​Oppose Amnesty for illegals (because they should not be rewarded for sneaking across our porous border) to prevent them from becoming 12 million newly minted-low information-bought and paid for entitlement-welfare-burden on the U.S taxpayer-bankrupt America democratic voters!!!

•​Oppose the president's Trans Pacific Partnership Treaty (since nobody clearly knows what is in it like Obamacare and I fear the president is selling America's sovereignty "down the river".

•​Oppose the sneaky U.N. Small Arms Treaty or any other future U.N. infringement on American sovereignty - In fact, kick the anti-American, vision of one world government U.N. out of the U.S.A.!! U.N.’s Agenda 21 is evil!

• Why has the DHS bought 1.6 billion hollow point bullets? What are they preparing for? Why has the Obama administration heavily militarized the DHS and our local police departments? Per the Geneva conventions, hollow points are illegal to use in wars between nations. The DHS must be preparing to use them against the American people! What is worse is American taxpayer dollars were use to buy these bullets! I think it is because they are the first to know just how serious America’s impending bankruptcy is and hiding it from the public! I am demanding the demilitarization of the "department of homeland security"!! Obama's communist domestic army! Representative Sheila Jackson Lee slipped when she suggested the words “martial law” during the federal government shutdown – If you look at her contact info on the www.house.gov website, it shows her committee assignment as “Homeland Security Judiciary” (not a coincidence)! - "When the people fear their government, there is tyranny! When the government fears the people, there is liberty!" - Thomas Jefferson

•​Increase sanctions on Iran to end their nuclear program, otherwise you will enable war to break out in the middle-east while betraying Israel.

This is my protest!! I believe we are in danger of losing our Constitutional Republic! Help me save it!

I am risking unjust reprisal to speak out, yet the consequences of remaining silent are far worse for this nation!

Just say NO to the sell-out RINO’s – (Senator Mitch McConnell, this includes you!!)

Senator Harry Reid, you have always been a sell-out, or you are a political coward, and an accomplice to the Obama administration corruption! I am calling you out on it! - “Those who will sacrifice liberty for temporary security, deserve neither, and will lose both” - Benjamin Franklin

I am an anti-progressive(democrat and republican alike), anti-liberal, anti-elitist-condescending statist-("trust us because we know what is best for you better than you do and the American people are too stupid to make wise choices for themselves") - so for example, we will impose elitist, “genius” Obamacare on the American people whether they want it or not!

I am a pro-constitution, bill of rights, founding father's principles, limited government, libertarian supporter, Mark Levin's book - "The Liberty Amendments" admirer, Constitution's Article V convention of state's advocate.

I’m sending a copy of this message to your fellow congressmen and news media outlets across the country, including some in your state! (I treasure the bill of rights, do you??)

Excellent overview and spirit, JPH.

You are rising to the occasion well.

May the spirit become contagious this upcoming year. 

The crowd is shouting B*** S***, B*** S***, B*** S*** etc., etc.  And that is what more of us should be doing in ALL States across this Nation.

I hate it when anyone associated with the administration agrees with T-party success!

I know that I'm in it as long as it take, or until I'm done, which ever comes first.

the Tea Party is composed of all the concerned legal American citizens against corruption, lies, secrecy, destroying our Constitution and sensible laws and the increased sensless wasteful spending and the huge unneeded growth of government and the interference in state rights and rule by an illegally elected president who is incompetent, ignorant, and just plain stupid!

Hearty 'amens' to that, Dorothy!!!!

AMEN  DOROTHY    WELL STATED.

Too bad the media can't spread the word and get more real Americans behind the Tea Party. Instead they choose to demonize and ridicule.

Dorothy Duda,

I agree with you completely except for one thing.  BARACK OBAMA IS NOT INCOMPETENT OR IGNORANT OR STUPID..... he is effectively achieving his MARXIST AGENDA. If you look at Obama from a Patriot American's point of view, he seems incompetent, even ignorant and he would be, if he were trying to do what is right for our people and our country, BUT HE IS NOT!!!  Barack Obama is pursuing an agenda to destroy everything Americans cherish and hold dear and he (along with his criminal coharts in Congress, including RINOS such as McConnell, Boehner, McCain and Graham) is succeeding to an astonishing degree.  We must not look at Obama as one who would do good things for this country if he was not incompetent.....that is the wrong measurement. We must recognize his agenda and it is to destroy America and the American way of life.....the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and Free Market Capitalism.  He intends to replace it with a MARXIST SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST TOTALITARIAN DICTATORSHIP.  Americans had better wake up and smell the coffee......if you don't understand your enemy, you don't know how to fight him!!!  Our problems at present are 1.) too many Americans don't understand what we are dealing with or don't care 2.) criminal professional politicians in Congress who will sell out the American People to the highest bidder and 3.) at present, we have no effective way to hold these criminals to account and throw them out of power.

Well said!   Local & state civil and criminal JURY trials CAN break their backs!   Read Article 6 clauses 2 & 3, and Amendments 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13-1 & 14-1 plus the second oath & duty of office.   ALL LEGISLATIVE, JUDICIAL, law enforcement, etc. are bound to "...support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic... (with) true faith and allegiance... (taking the) obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion... faithfully discharge the duties of the office..."   There is zero federal credibility - demand local justice in the district where your Civil Rights are violated!   It's an election year - make sure your officials will enforce your Constitutional Rights AS WRITTEN and GIVEN TO JURIES!   Force them out of office if they refuse!

Democrat Disaster! 53% Of Black Voters, 60% Of Other Minorities Say Liberal Media Trying To Help Democrats Impeach Trump

Thanks to President Donald Trump ALL Americans now know the mainstream fake-news media is an extension of the Democrat Party.

In a recent poll a majority of black voters and minority voters say the media is trying to help Democrats impeach President Trump.

And half of FOX News too, by the way.

CNS News reported:

Both black voters and other minority voters are more convinced than white voters that most reporters are trying to help impeach President Donald Trump, rather than report the news fairly – with a majority of each of the three groups holding that view – a new Rasmussen Reports survey reveals.

In the national voter survey, conducted November 12-13, 53% of all voters said most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump:

“When they write or talk about the impeachment effort, are most reporters trying to help impeach President Trump or block his impeachment? Or are most reporters simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner?”:

“Help impeach President Trump”: 53%
“Block his impeachment”: 8%
Report “news in an unbiased an unbiased manner”: 32%

But, 53% of black voters and 60% of other minorities, compared to 51% of whites, said reporters are trying to get Trump rather than report the news fairly.
