For decades, we’ve been prepared. We’ve led. We’ve made innovative breakthroughs. We’ve made significant advances in trade, diplomacy, global trust, and modernization. We’ve protected the American way of life. But what will history say about our ability to take on the challenges of today? The National Defense Panel – a bipartisan group tasked with reviewing the future of national defense strategy, budgets, and reforms – offered stark conclusions: unless we change course from the failures of recent years, our military is at a high risk of not being able to fully guarantee our national security.

It is outrageous that we have a CDC, and the best they can do is to blame people that get the disease for breaching non-existent protocols. How can we have faith in a Centers for Disease Control that immediately blames people with the disease without even knowing how they got it? I mean, you can’t have faith in a group like that.
“The top concern of the US government should be protecting the American people. Today I visited Ft. Hood where hundreds of soldiers are preparing to deploy to West Africa and there’s a great deal of concern there among their families understandably. The health professionals in Texas are preparing to deal with the potential of Ebola here but the first line of defense should be to prevent that terrible virus from coming here.”
Selling nothing get no sales. Is there anything more pathetic than a party without a message – other than: “The economy sucks and we’re not Obama”? Imagine what it would be like if everyone took the Republican approach to messaging: “Join us for Sunday worship.” Why? “We’ll get back to you on that after we check with our focus group.” Or. “Shop at Macy’s – We’re not Gimbels!”
On Monday morning, Tea Party Express Executive Director Taylor Budowich was joined by a large and enthusiastic group of local Tea Party members to announce our endorsement of Senator Pat Roberts for U.S. Senate at a unity event in Wichita, Kansas. Our endorsement of Senator Roberts followed endorsements of the Senator from conservative superstars like Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin.
“I have yet to see any plans or studies that show that transferring prisoners from Guantanamo Bay to South Carolina or any other domestic location will make America safer. We are talking about some of the most dangerous terrorists in the world, including planners of September 11th and the attack on the U.S.S. Cole. They should stay right where they are – in cells at the prison on Guantanamo Bay, far away from our schools and families.
Today the 60-day period designated by the War Powers Resolution that has so far allowed President Obama to take military action against an imminent threat to the United States runs out. It was two months ago that President Obama declared that ISIS expansion from Syria into Iraq triggered the authority given to him by the War Powers Resolution to take unilateral action, absent congressional approval, against ISIS.
Congressman Randy Forbes (R-VA) has been in the news recently to discuss a variety of issues facing our nation – including the Obama Administration negotiating with Iran – one of the main state sponsors of terrorism around the globe. Forbes also discussed the resignation of lawless Attorney General Eric Holder and the serious threat that the Islamic State poses to the free world.
“Due to the Obama Administration’s unclear approach to addressing the threat of the Ebola virus, Americans – particularly the Texans who have possibly been exposed – deserve specific answers to how the administration is addressing travel to and from the countries impacted by the disease,” Sen. Cruz said. In his letter he adds, “It is imperative that the FAA take every available precaution in preventing additional cases from arriving in the United States.”
Joni Ernst has been endorsed by GING-PAC and is one of the candidates who may help the GOP take over the Senate from Dingy Harry Reid, the Obamunist who has blocked every meaningful bill passed by the conservatives in the House of Representatives. Reid has also served as a shield against any efforts to hold Obama accountable for his administration’s numerous scandals including Benghazi, Veteran’s Affairs, IRS targeting of conservatives, the spying on journalists, the illegal immigration crisis, the lack of response to Islamic terrorism, and much more.
