Acting Asst. Sec. Susan Thornton and EAP team en route to her nomination hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee!
Did you think the fight was over for the Tea Party after we took the House, Senate and White House? You are needed more than ever! The left is about to try to model what we have done and we have to FIGHT BACK! We are going to need you on the phones, hitting the pavement and defending the WIN!
The progressive left is on the ropes and they know it. But, they will get help from the RINOs in the GOP and their media buddies in their attempt to bring down President Trump. They think they will succeed. We won't let them! The sleeping giant awoke and it can never go back to sleep again!
First they ignored us but we got louder:
Then the laughed at us:
Then, they fought us:
Then, WE WON!!
Celebrate the victory but do not think our work is done! This article from the LA Times should be a warning bell for all of us:
Donald Trump represents a grave threat to liberal democratic values. On Capitol Hill, Republicans are falling in line and some moderate Democrats have signaled a willingness to cut deals. But ordinary Americans have the power to resist. We know this is true because we have seen local, grassroots organizing take hold before.
Eight years ago, two of us worked as congressional staffers and the other in immigrant rights organizing. President Obama had taken office with large Democratic majorities in both houses of Congress and seemed poised to enact many of our shared priorities. Another force was taking shape, however, that would eventually bring federal policymaking to a halt.
The tea party protests began early in 2009, as small groups of conservative activists organized against government intervention in the housing and financial markets. By summer, they had grown into a formidable opposition movement, flooding congressional offices with angry letters, emails and calls. Enabled by a media that thrives on conflict, these minority voices soon dominated the national discourse.
When members of Congress retreated to their districts for what should have been an uneventful summer of little league games and pancake breakfasts, tea party activists awaited them. Two of us worked for Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas), who was mobbed in an Austin parking lot by protesters carrying Revolutionary War battle flags and signs denouncing “socialized healthcare.” Their simple chant, which would soon become familiar, was, “just say no.”
The tea party organized for the 2010 midterms, targeting both Republicans and moderate Democrats. By the time the dust had settled, Democrats had lost their large majorities in Congress and, with their lost seats, any hope of realizing a bold progressive agenda.
Although their policy ideas were destructive, the tea party demonstrated that a small group of activists can take on a newly elected president with a majority in Congress — and win.
Now it’s our turn.
We learned two key lessons from the tea party’s success.
First, they organized locally, focusing on members of Congress in their home states and districts, pushing them to use every available tool — legislation, letters, public statements, media interviews — to oppose Obama’s every move.
WHY I LOVE LT. COL. ALLEN WEST!!

Yesterday, there was a peaceful transition of power in our nation’s capital, or was it actually peaceful? And, today, there will be a Women’s March, why? I have no issue with the First Amendment right to assemble, to express free speech, or petition the government for redress of grievances. But what we witnessed yesterday in the nation’s capital reminded me more of a scene from East Jerusalem, not an American presidential inauguration.
The Daily Mail reports, Thousand of protesters launched a violent rampage just blocks away from the White House as Trump haters smashed store windows, set fire to cars and threw bricks at police – who arrested more than 200 before nightfall.
Heated clashes broke out in McPherson Square and along K Street as hundreds of riot police fired tear gas and drew their nightsticks to contain the masked mob.
As the rioting unfolded, Trump and his family were arriving at a review stand at the White House to see the end of the inaugural parade.
Militant anti-Trump protesters gave a foretaste of what could follow during the violent outbreaks, which has so far seen 217 people arrested and at least six police officers injured.
Hundreds of protesters with varying agendas marched through downtown streets, and some groups clashed with police, throwing rocks and bottles which police responded to with tear gas and concussion grenades. A helicopter hovered low overhead.
At one flash point, a protester hurled an object through the passenger window of a police van, which quickly sped away in reverse as demonstrators cheered. Earlier, activists wearing masks used chunks of pavement and baseball bats to shatter the windows of a Bank of America branch and a McDonald’s outlet, all symbols of American capitalism.
Multiple vehicles were set on fire, including a black limousine and a television truck. A knot of people dragged garbage cans into a street a few blocks from the White House and set them ablaze, later throwing a red cap bearing Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan into the flames.
The various protest groups scattered around the city chanted anti-Trump slogans and carried signs with slogans including “Trump is not president” and “Make Racists Afraid Again.”
“Trump is not going to be stopped at the top, he’s going to be stopped from the bottom, from people rising up,” said Ben Allen, a 69-year-old retired teacher from San Francisco. “We support the right of everybody in this country, no matter what nationality, what religion, the color of their skin, to be respected as a human being, and this guy doesn’t respect anybody.”
It would appear the progressive socialist left in America has more in common with the “Palestinian” terrorists. They both seem to believe embracing the tactic of creating fear, terror, intimidation, and violence is the means to their end, namely, control. It’s the method of their madness to secure their goals and objectives. Just as the Palestinian “choom gang” only wants the extermination of Israel, a two-state solution is not part of their agenda.
The liberal progressive left displayed yesterday — as they have since the November presidential election — unless they get what they want, they will throw absurd temper tantrums, and enact violence to secure their designs. If you want to peacefully march, and show yourself to be a loyal opposition, just articulate a clear policy vision for the country. But those who can independently think and aren’t part of the leftist herd, made our choice in November. And, if I may use the words of Obama — “I won, get over it”. But, the hypocrisy continues, and that which caused the left to lose is still their raison d’être.
Ponder if you will: what if constitutional conservatives had acted this way back in 2008 for the inauguration of Barack Obama? Yes, there were constitutional conservative rallies, and, guess what, it was about tax and healthcare policy. I don’t recall any cars being set on fire, or bricks thrown. And, when there were conservative rallies, they left the grounds cleaner than when they came.
The liberal progressive left needs to do a self-examination and cease their petulant childish rantings. Look, over the past eight years. Y’all have lost countless seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate, state legislatures, gubernatorial seats — and Donald J. Trump had nothing to do with that.
You know, back in the day when I was growing up, if someone didn’t smell good, we told them. Well, here is my honest gift to the progressive socialist left: y’all stink! Your policies stink. And since y’all smell, folks distanced themselves from you. Now, you can hate us for telling y’all you stink, calling us names and burning up stuff, but the fact remains, y’all stink.
So, here is your choice: go find some deodorant and present yourselves all anew, or just keep stinking. These insidious slogans like “Make America Sick Again,” or “Make Racists Afraid Again,” just prove over and over you refuse to accept, or even realize you stink.
The problem is, over the past eight years, you wanted us to stink with you. You know, that “fundamental transformation” dirt you wanted us to wallow in with y’all? There were those of us who preferred to shower and smell presentable; those of us who like residing in a Constitutional Republic. Y’all even hired media, entertainment, cultural, academic, and political elites who tried to convince us we were the ones who stunk…But we knew y’all were just spewing “fake news.” Then, voilà, last November, you finally got the message, y’all really do stink! But, instead of seeking out some soap and cologne, you got mad at us. We will not be intimidated into stinking with y’all, no matter how much you rant and hurl invective, along with other denigrating, demeaning, and disparaging remarks.
Liberty, freedom, and the ability to pursue our own happiness have a very special aroma that is very alluring. Collectivism, socialism, statism, and big government to guarantee of happiness? Well, it stinks. Y’all are like a gathering of pig-pens, and with you comes a cloud of nasty, corruption, cronyism, and elitism that we do not want near us. Now, if that makes y’all so very mad you go out and break, burn, and destroy stuff — how very mature.
And, this Women’s March in D.C. today — doggone — I hope you ladies realize there are women who don’t feel their most important right is killing a baby. You see, they don’t want that stink on them, and that makes y’all mad, and you attack women who want that sweet smell of economic freedom and security.
So, y’all progressive socialist leftists, keep yelling, threatening, screaming, breaking, burning, crying (I know, you need a binky and safe space), calling folks names. Just know the bottom line is you’re losing because you and your policies fail, because they stink. And you will too as long as you embrace them.
They say make Racists afraid again...THEY ARE AFRAID , that's why there are all the protests !!!!
The cartoon above does represent the MEDIA'S guide to protestors, except for one detail... the Tea Party lady should have an AR-15 slung across her back. THAT'LL DO IT. With that she'll be READY to face the "Legitimate Voice of America", like most other Tea Party folks would be.
I hope my liberal friends will forgive me if I mention the name of Frédéric Bastiat. "When the political aspirations of the membership of a political party are accurately reflected, the common good of all will be achieved." ... Frédéric Bastiat, Law and Economics
The Tea Party, as a body of thought, simply represents far more people who share that body of thought than those who share the liberal body of thought of progressivism.
We must not let down our Guard, not get comfortable and complacent, we can never afford to do that again, Liberty & Freedom will need us everyday. We must guard, what we have worked so hard to achieve. We must support our new President, and have his Back. We will attack those who attack him, that will be the Media, Leftist Republicans, etc.
We need to make plans to support TRUMP! in any way we can,, we need to stay on the RINO's and any time there is a stink of compromise, raise hell in their offices, on their phones.
TEA needs to get larger and more vocal.
We are making plans!
The Tea Party of which I have been fully involved with for 8 years have their plans which was one of the major reasons we elected Donald Trump. Donald Trump did a major part as did Julian Assange and the criminal Hillery Clinton.
The Tea Party were very instrumental in the election of Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson and Pennsylvania Senator Patrick Toomey. We are very busy in supporting President Trump every day and are not going away.
You are a little late to the party in just making plans now. We are continuing to implement our plan and modify it every day when necessary.
I look forward to your publication of the plan.
Attention all Conservatives, Christians & Patriotic Freedom Loving Americans, Just because we have A New President does not mean we can relax or go apathetic or complacent we need to hold President Trump & The New Republican Congress accountable by holding their feet to the fire and we need to pray for our elected leaders & Governing officials just like The Bible commands us to!!!
You got that right....never again...
Does anybody remember when the Dems tried to imitate the success of Rush Limbaugh? LOL.
