Obama is primarily responsible for the Tea Party movement, despite the fact that it is the nemesis of the President and the political establishment.
The movement is predominantly composed of a small number of Libertarians and a large number of Conservatives. The Tea Party Conservatives are formerly Conservative Republicans who have given up the notion of having a moral government and are tired of funding an immoral government. They are disconnecting from the Republican establishment, which today seems more comfortable managing big government than ultimately reducing it. Herein lies their commonality with Libertarians. The Tea Party is thus at the vertex of this confluence that emphasizes as its central theme the notion that the U.S. must return to a Constitutionally limited federal government.
The catalyst of this political migration is Obama’s stated goal of a “fundamental transformation of America.” Indeed, the Tea Party can most accurately be described as a popular revolt and instinctive response to such statements from this administration. Obama’s speech on the national debt reinforced the logic behind the movement; the President’s extremist economic goals further imperil our nation’s already dire fiscal situation.
“The fourth step in our approach is to reduce spending in the tax code. In December, I agreed to extend the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans because it was the only way I could prevent a tax hike on middle-class Americans. But we cannot afford $1 trillion worth of tax cuts for every millionaire and billionaire in our society. And I refuse to renew them again.
“Beyond that, the tax code is also loaded up with spending on things like itemized deductions. And while I agree with the goals of many of these deductions, like homeownership or charitable giving, we cannot ignore the fact that they provide millionaires an average tax break of $75,000 while doing nothing for the typical middle-class family that doesn’t itemize.”
By referring to deductable expenses as “spending in the tax code,” the President indicated his belief that a person’s income is for the discretionary use of government, or for whatever Obama deems our nations “investments.” This then clarifies the enormous difference between the beliefs of the contemporary Democratic Left and those of free-market capitalists. The former believe that an individual’s labor product is a resource that belongs to the state, which may then be allocated, or, more accurately, appropriated it in a manner that it sees fit. The latter argue that a person’s labor belongs to them and them alone, and are thus the ultimate deciders of its fate.
“But let me be absolutely clear: I will preserve these health care programs as a promise we make to each other in this society. I will not allow Medicare to become a voucher program that leaves seniors at the mercy of the insurance industry, with a shrinking benefit to pay for rising costs. I will not tell families with children who have disabilities that they have to fend for themselves. We will reform these programs, but we will not abandon the fundamental commitment this country has kept for generations.”
The “fundamental commitment” that Obama speaks of is not a promise that American citizens made to one another. Rather, it is a promise Obama and the Left made to people who take from the system and a promise paid for by people who provide that system with money. This is possible because the voters who take far outnumber the voters who pay. Obama’s promise is that he will use force to take from a few to provide for the many in exchange for their political support. This he calls “courage.”
Today, fewer than 10 percent of Americans provide almost all federal income tax revenues. As it so happens, Obama and the Democratic party’s chief constituency is part of the 90 percent who think the top 10 percent can afford higher taxes. This explains why the Left defines democracy as the power for those who take from the system to decide how to spend the money of those who pay for the system. Over the years, this concept has been dressed up in all too many guises; social justice; economic justice; economic democracy, social democracy, and others.
The Tea Party emerged out of the fact that this narrow definition of democracy has grown steadily and unchallenged ever since Obama began campaigning for President. The Democratic Party has slowly built its base upon a dependency class, all while the Republican Party has provided only a modicum of resistance. This has set the national interest on drastically divergent paths and shattered American history’s political status quo.
Most importantly, however, it has allowed for the rise of political migrants who desire a return to the founding principles that made our nation prosperous in the first place and produced the wealth and power that the political class now seeks to redistribute to itself.

Washington is gearing up for a major battle that will make last week’s budget fight seem trivial.
In less than 30 days Congress will either increase their borrowing power again or finally take spending reform seriously. This is the battle the Tea Party has been waiting for and we are going to lead the fight with another of our award winning national ad campaigns to STOP Congress from RAISING THE DEBT CEILING again.
This should be a simple fight. The debt ceiling absolutely CANNOT be raised without Republicans in both the House and Senate voting for it.
If we can just force Republicans to hold firm to their promise to reduce spending and lower our national debt – WE WILL WIN this critical battle.
The Republican majority we fought to elect last year proved pathetic as they easily caved in and embraced a mockery of a spending cut last week. We cannot and will not let them get steamrolled again by the political establishment.
This ad campaign will STOP the OUT-OF-CONTROL DEBT that poses a mortal threat to America’s future!
The national debt has blown pass $14 trillion and is skyrocketing every day. Instead of turning off the spigot and saving our future, Congress is about to take more of our tax dollars to fund their pet projects and borrow trillions more from Communist China.
The government’s massive expansion of power and spending will only end with a catastrophic collapse of the American economy unless we stop Congress from continuing to increase their credit limit.
America needs to know what’s at stake.
- $45,939 – Share of National Debt owed per U.S. Citizen
- $128,565 – Share of National Debt owed per Taxpayer
Our ads will drill into people’s heads that the logical first step to getting the national debt under control is eliminating our capacity to accumulate more of it.
Congress will take this vote in the next 30 days. We must act now!
This spending binge will destroy our future unless we stop it. If we can prevent Congress from increasing the debt limit we will successfully force them to tackle spending reform.
Without a limitless debit card Members of Congress will be forced to make the tough decisions they were elected to make.
The Democrats and the media are already shrieking that we must increase the debt ceiling and increase it now. That is because it is easier to increase the debt ceiling with one swipe of a pen than it is to eliminate and cut the billions government waste and corruption.
Obama wants this so he can borrow more money to pay off his friends who will help him get re-elected next year. It’s just another bailout for his radical agenda and political cronies at the expense of our future.
Wall Street is busy lobbying the halls of Congress crying wolf for a quick increase to the debt ceiling. They successfully pulled this off last time with the Wall Street Bailout but we will not let them get away with it this time. Remember roughly 65% of Wall Street political donations go to fund Democrats.
Our ads will energize the American people and force Congress to respect the voice of the electorate. We can do it but we must act now!
We have seen issues like this too many times before. Conservatives fight the good fight until the political Establishment with all of its money and political influence garner enough votes to pass any level of spending increase they desire.
This time will be different but we must act now. Please FORWARD this letter to everyone you know. The money the government is so rapidly spending is their money too.
In the words of Thomas Jefferson: “It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debt as it goes.” We have saddled future generations with a mind boggling $14.3 trillion debt and our government is asking for more. We must not let them!
We have a chance to stop the spending spree and start our country back on the road to fiscal sanity. We can do it but we must all come together and we must act fast. The vote is only weeks away unless Republicans cave in to the political establishment sooner.
Please support our efforts! CLICK HERE!
We can do it and we will! All we have to do is force all Republicans to hold the line.
The GOP Trust is proud to be your voice in Washington. We are funded solely by contributions of hard-working Americans donating $25 or $50 at a time. The GOP Trust receives no corporate funding and is not tied to any special interests.
Together we will make sure Washington hears us loud and clear and knows that we will not back down and not let the Democrats raise the debt ceiling and harm our great country for future generations.

In a world where real Investigative Journalism is an anachronism, Scott Wheeler and his team of investigators have been digging deep undercover, bringing to light some of the biggest news stories of the last 15 years. Each week Special Investigator takes listeners on an exclusive trip inside multiple investigations, providing the audience with actionable knowledge, field intelligence and the sting of real evidence.
This is what TEA Party Radio sounds like!
Unlike other programs, the news coming out of Special Investigator each week is first hand, exclusive evidence and information not found on other news and talks shows in any medium. Wheeler’s team of sleuths has developed an international intelligence network that has outperformed the intelligence agencies of many countries.
Among his investigative breakthroughs, Wheeler has worked undercover to reveal: the internal operations of Hamas within the United States, leading to several suspects named in the reports to be arrested; and a weapons of mass destruction pipeline run out of the Middle East, as he posed undercover as an arms-dealer in 1998 and 1999.
During the Clinton Administration, Wheeler worked inside China and investigated the China/DNC fundraising scandal, with many of his reports used in criminal prosecutions, congressional investigations and hearings. His penetrating documentary “Trading with the Enemy; How the ClintonAdministration Armed China” lead even the most stalwart Democrats to acknowledge that President Clinton had decontrolled dangerous military technology to communist China while receiving illegal donations. Continuing in his effort to reveal China’s threat to the United States, in 2003 Wheeler’s reportage led to the exposure of a foreign agent from China operating inside the U.S. posing as a college student.
Today, Wheeler’s investigations include: Wide Spread Voter Fraud; China’s Rare Earth Metals Monopoly and its effect on our Defense technology; Fringe Groups Receiving Stimulus Money; Global Warming Lies; and George Soros’ network of control over the American economic and political systems.
Call your radio station today and ask them to carry this important program from the Radio America network.

We are busy working on investigations on vote fraud, global warming lies, technology sold to China, union abuse and much more. Please stay tuned, and get ready for a shock. If you can help us with these ongoing investigations I would really appreciate it.
Please help us keep this radio show on the air and secure the resources needed to expose the truth.
- Wisconsin enters FINAL HOURS
- OBAMA lashes out at conservative Governors
- Unions Double down their efforts
Dear GOP Trust Supporter:
The final hours are fast approaching in Wisconsin’s battle over the public union’s stranglehold on the economy. The outcome of this fight will have major implications across the country.
If we are able to reign in government spending and union waste in Wisconsin, dozens of states like Ohio, New Jersey, Florida, Tennessee, Nevada and evenCalifornia are ready to follow.
We can do it but we must win in Wisconsin first!
Obama knows how critical union control is to his re-election bid. He knows that without their control of government money he cannot advance his radical transformation of America. Yesterday in a speech to the Nation’s governors he scolded their efforts to reign in his personal campaign ATM.
We must win this battle in Wisconsin and take the momentum to other states. We have never seen polling numbers on public sector unions this low. Nor have we seen the public’s appetite to cut government spending this high. THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW!
We must use this momentum to save our country from massive debt and expanding government control.
We are hitting the airwaves in Wisconsin and will be moving into other states quickly. You can join the fight and help get these ads on the air. We will buy as much airtime as we can in every state that needs our help.
Big Labor and the Democrats will stop at nothing to advance their socialist agenda and expand the power of government. Please know that all of these public sector union rallies that have popped up across the country are being paid for with YOUR hard earned tax dollars.
That’s right, We the taxpayers are paying for all of these teachers to skip school and get their fake doctor’s note.
We are also paying for the cowardly Democrat legislators that have skipped town and refuse to perform their duties.
These public sector unions are dumping millions of “FORCED DUES” into the fight in Wisconsin and across the country.
Last week, Big Labor led by SEIU launched a more than 15 state campaign and is working with Moveon.org and Obama’s campaign machine Organizing for Americato hold rallies and marches in all 50 states.
If we are to fight their war chest of forced dues and billions from George Soros we must all join together in this important fight.
Help us get these ads running everywhere!!
We must get our ads on the air today to combat the Left and keep the momentum on our side. We need to counter their dirty tricks with force.
We cannot allow their dirty tactics to change this debate and defeat the pro-business, pro-free market proposals that will save our economy and the future of our country.
We must be prepared to quickly respond to their every move. They have a huge war chest of cash and apparently an endless supply of doctor notes. We have you and all American loving conservatives to fight back.
If we all come together we can blanket the airwaves and stop these unions from destroying our economic future.
Please JOIN THE FIGHT. Together we will win this multi-state battle for the conservative cause.
Yours for America,
- SEIU holds rallies in 14 states

– Repeal Obamacare Vote Expected TODAY!
– Our Video and Petition Having Huge Impact
– Still Need FOUR More Democrat Votes
– You Could Make a Difference!
Dear GOP Trust Supporter:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell will force a vote on repealing Obamacare. His amendment is expected to be voted on today!
This comes directly on the heels of Monday’s federal court ruling that Obamacare is unconstitutional.
We have all the momentum now and Obama and Harry Reid are on their heels. The time to strike is NOW!
We can win this vote and save America from socialized medicine but we need to quickly secure 4 more Democrat votes.
Yesterday we launched a new video and petition campaign targeting the 16 most vulnerable Democrats. Your response was incredible and these Democrats are feeling the pressure you created on Capitol Hill and are trying to hide. We are already preparing to run targeted ads against these Democrats if they vote against repeal.
We must take full advantage of this environment and increase our pressure tenfold until WE WIN FULL REPEAL!
Our strategy will work but we conservatives must come together and recruit more concerned Americans to fight alongside us. This is going to be a tough fight but we will prevail. We must!
Help us get this video to as many Americans as possible and get over 100,000 American-loving citizens to sign this important petition.
If you have not seen the newest video – Please WATCH IT NOW!
If you have not signed the petition – Please SIGN IT NOW!
Now is the time to force Congress to repeal Obamacare before it is too late. We have the momentum and will not stop until we reach victory. The stakes in this battle are too high!
Obama and Harry Reid will not allow the flagship of their radical transformation of America to go away without a huge fight. This is a fight we welcome and are proud to lead.
If we are to get the remaining 4 Democrats we need to pass this bill this week we must act fast.
Even if we come up short this week know that we are setting a rat trap for Democrats step in.
Every time we force a vote on this critical issue we expose the Democrats, we weaken their political future and we erode any remaining power they cling too.
We will not ease up until we see victory and preserve our freedom! We will run targeted ads in these key Democrat states. You can help us keep the pressure on!
Thank you for signing this important petition and for FORWARDING THIS EMAIL to all of your friends and family.
Please also consider joining the fight and helping us spread the word by keeping our ads and videos on the airwaves and keeping our Capitol Hill efforts going by making a donation below.
Every dollar goes to help repeal Obamacare and elect true conservatives that will get this great country back on track. Our ad campaigns have delivered in the past and we will do it again.
Thank you for your unwavering support of the GOP Trust and of the conservative cause.
Yours for America,
Former U.S. Marine Lt. Ilario Pantano, felt compelled to let you know just how much your support of the GOP Trust meant to his campaign. I consider Ilario a true American patriot and hero and know that you will agree that his message accurately points out two of the most important issues facing our country today: Repealing Healthcare and Cutting Spending.
Dear Fellow Conservative:
Last year, I almost pulled off one of the biggest election upsets in recent history. While we came up just a hair short, we laid the foundation for conservative candidates and policies that will continue for years to come. This outstanding effort was all made possible by patriots like my friend Scott Wheeler and the National Republican Trust PAC and fellow conservatives like you.
Now the GOP Trust is taking charge again and leading the conservative agenda on Capitol Hill to repeal healthcare, cut spending, hold members accountable for their votes and to recruit viable conservative candidates across the country.
The GOP Trust was one of the first to identify my sleeper race in North Carolina. Their crucial early support allowed me to build traction and deliver a conservative campaign message focusing on less government: Prosperity through Freedom and strong national security: Peace through Strength.
With their support we were able to connect with voters across a district that had been Democrat for 140 years! In the end we forced a 14 year incumbent to spend his entire union funded $1.9 million war chest.
Nancy Pelosi even had to borrow $17 million to protect supposedly safe Democrats like her blue dogs/lapdogs. While we came up short this time, we were part of a national effort that enabled a larger conservative sweep.
Scott and the National Republican Trust team saw an opportunity to support a campaign early that could punch well beyond its weight. They successfully did this all across the country and helped restore our nation on last fall’s historic Election Day.
Please join with me and help them do it again! GO HERE NOW!
The National Republican Trust has just launched two very expensive national campaigns to Repeal Healthcare and to Cap Our National Debt and stop the federal spending spree.
These are the two most important issues facing our Country today. We conservatives must come together to pressure Congress to do the right thing. If we win these two battles we will have made significant strides in reviving our economy, limiting government growth and restoring a constitutional government.
The GOP Trust has consistently delivered for the conservative cause and if we support them now they will deliver another massive blow to the Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi agenda.
Harry Reid has already said he will not bring up any repeal of Healthcare in the Senate and Republicans are already starting to lose ground in the debate over whether or not to raise the debt ceiling again!
This is unacceptable! We must act swiftly and with great purpose.
The LA Times just reported that Obama “is enjoying a surge in public approval as he marks the midpoint of his term, with independent voters who were instrumental to Republican victories in last year’s congressional elections beginning to swing back to the president.”
Obama has gained another bump in the polls after his State of the Union address. Obama has clearly shown that he will lie and do anything to manipulate the political rhetoric on Capitol Hill to get re-elected and the media will let him.
We have too much to lose to sit idly by. WE MUST ACT NOW!
We cannot allow Obama or his radical agenda to regain any momentum. It is critical we tell all Americans the truth about Obama’s policies and build a massive public outcry that forces Congress to act responsibly.
The GOP Trust urgently needs your support to get their videos and TV ads on the airwaves and to fully launch their strategic grassroots campaign!
Please consider supporting this worthwhile group. You can contribute as little as $5 up to the maximum allowed $5,000. Every dollar will go to preserving the America we love.
PS- Please look out for the GOP Trust’s new Repeal Obamacare video coming out early next week.
Thank you for taking the time to read Ilario’s important message. I look forward to fighting alongside you as we take back our country. Together we will stop the out of control federal spending binge, repeal Obamacare, shrink the size of government and elect a true citizen legislature that is governed by the Constitution and our shared conservative principles.
Yours for America,
