Tea Party Patriots Action Weekly Report from Washington 05/04/20

CALENDAR: The Senate will return Monday, May 4. The House may return the week of May 11.   CONGRESS RETURNS: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared several weeks ago that the Senate would return to work on Monday, May 4, and he even scheduled a roll call vote for 5:30 PM to make sure everyone knew he was serious. On Monday of last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that, after consulting with House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, she had decided that the House of Representatives, too, would return to work in Washington on Monday, May 4. She then got on a conference call with her House Democrat colleagues and was ...

Socialist Schemes Never Work

During the Tuesday evening debate in South Carolina, Senator Bernie Sanders lauded the supposed benefits to a socialized healthcare system. Bernie, for decades now, has been seriously misinformed. His most recent detractor is a surprising one: the Coronavirus. We’ll let Tom Rogan with the Washington Examiner explain: Bernie Sanders advanced his anti-pharmaceutical industry narrative at the Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday. He's only showing us that we're lucky he's not president as the COVID-19 epidemic grows. "The advantage of a Medicare for All healthcare program, because it's not driven by profits for the drug companies and the ...

South Carolina Debate Recap

Last night’s debate was, by all accounts, a dumpster fire crossed with a political shooting range. While candidates took cheap and easy shots at each other CBS’ poor moderation let it all unfold in glorious fashion. Tiana Lowe gives us the breakdown of the winners from last night: Luckily for Joe Biden, he found his stones at the very last second that it mattered. His eminently weird final minutes of the debate aside, it still seems possible that he ekes out the significant victory in South Carolina he needs to survive Super Tuesday. But if we stop grading on an extremely generous curve and consider the impact of Tuesday's debate on Election ...

South Carolina Debate Preview

Debate Preview Tonight is yet another Democratic Debate. This one marks the last on-stage appearance for all the candidates before Super Tuesday next week. We can expect a bulk of the candidates to decide whether or not their campaigns are worth continuing based on the results next week. That means tonight’s debate may be the most important one so far, and we can expect sparks to fly. Local affiliate KTBS reports: Democratic rivals to Bernie Sanders are preparing to try to knock him off his front-runner perch in a debate Tuesday night before a critical South Carolina primary that could dramatically reshape the race. With mounting fear ...

Nevada Caucus Recap

Even while planning a trip to India and planning his reelection campaign, President Trump still finds time to troll his potential opponents. Bernie Sanders swept the Nevada Caucuses, to the chagrin of many. In a ‘congratulatory’ tweet, Trump told “Crazy Bernie” to not let the DNC steal the primary from him. Daily Caller reports: President Donald Trump tweeted a congratulatory message to Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders Saturday night on his projected victory in the Nevada caucuses. “Crazy Bernie is doing well in the Great State of Nevada,” the president wrote. “Biden & the rest look weak, & no way Mini Mike can ...

Nevada Is Going To Be Another Iowa

With another caucus looming and no clear reporting mechanism after the App failure of Iowa, Nevada may become ground zero part two for the destruction of the Democratic Party. The Democrats clearly have trouble running elections, yet they expect the American people to believe they are capable of running the country? Local affiliate Fox 5 has the details: A Nevada caucus worker is warning that the upcoming caucus “is going to be worse than Iowa if it’s not fixed.” Seth Morrison said he’s slated to work as a site leader overseeing six North Las Vegas precincts in the upcoming primary. "I'm feeling very concerned,” Morrison said. ...

Maryland State Lawmakers Roadblock Local Sheriffs

State lawmakers in Maryland are trying to hamper local Sheriffs in their task of keeping their communities safe. The legislation would prevent local police offices from collaboration with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents by putting up bureaucratic roadblocks. The Baltimore Sun reports: Three Maryland sheriffs cooperating with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement signaled their opposition to state legislation that would make collaboration with the federal agency more difficult Tuesday. Their goal was to oppose measures that would bring Maryland more in with sanctuary policies that have proliferated across the country. One ...

New Hampshire Debate Preview

Tonight marks yet another Democratic Presidential Primary Debate. First of all, whatever DNC operative thought it was a good idea to hold a debate on a Friday will hopefully be in charge of all the Democrats' marketing and outreach! Now, the goal of this debate is for the candidates to sell themselves to the people of New Hampshire, the next state to hold a primary. After the debacle in Iowa, the defeat of impeachment, and the bad press Nancy Pelosi created during the State of the Union, Democrats need a win as a whole. Too bad they won’t get any! But this may be the last chance for a few under-performing candidates to really make their mark. L...

State of the Union Preview

Tonight is the State of the Union, the yearly address to a joint session of Congress by the President. This year is bound to be an absolute doozy. President Trump will likely be acquitted of all charges tomorrow after the biggest sham impeachment process the country has ever seen. Trump took 97% of the Iowa Republican Caucus last night. The Democrats’ dismal Iowa performance has the party in shambles. Basically, tonight is a victory lap for the President and the Republican Party as a whole. Cheers! To see what kind of accomplishments President Trump will be touting look no further than the list of honored guests released by the White House. ...

Iowa Betrays The Democrats’ Incompetence

The Iowa Caucuses are over and done. Or are they? The Democrats’ incompetence shines through brighter than ever before! The absolute mess happening in Iowa is hilarious. And these people want to run the country! Fox News has the details: You had one job. The Iowa Caucuses essentially collapsed in confusion when state party officials were unable to report any results. It was a colossal failure on Monday night that will only fuel the criticism of the state’s first-in-the-nation role, with rules so complicated that journalists had trouble explaining them and the Democratic apparatus couldn’t even count the votes. That didn’t stop the ...
