Rumors of the Tea Party’s death have been greatly exaggerated. Last night they showed they are alive and well and devouring their own. Eric Cantor never thought this morning he would wake up a loser. Last night I was watching the NBA finals and my uncle called me and asked me if I had heard about Cantor. I immediately turned to CNN to be greeted with the news that Cantor had been defeated. All the pundits are stunned and asking how could this happen? Did Cantor take his eye off the ball? Was he a victim of pride? The Bible says “pride goeth before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall”. Last night Cantor fell.

RALEIGH, NC, Dec. 23, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Twitter has blocked users from Tweeting IStandWithPhil.com as the high-profile petition drive in support of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson rapidly approaches 200,000 members in just under four days. This marks at least the third major shutdown of a pro-Phil Robertson social media account since the story broke days ago. “Despite Twitter’s shut down of iStandWithPhil.com, we are surging through 200,000 supporters. In recent days, iStandWithPhil.com is among the top trending hash tags on Twitter,” said Chris Stone, Founder of Faith Driven Consumer. “We’re encouraging supporters to be heard, Tweet the @support or @twitter account, and use their other means of communication to get iStandWithPhil.com back online.” A Google page diagnostic of IStandWithPhil.com indicates “this site is not currently listed as suspicious” and that “this has not hosted malicious software over the past 90 days.” IStandWithPhil.com. is alerting its supporters and asking them to Tweet @support or @twitter to unblock postings that contain IStandWithPhil.com.

Liberal Democrat Grayson Blasted for Comparing Tea Party To KKK
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 24, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Conservative and independent-minded Black Americans are demanding a public apology from Congressman Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) for his remarks equating the Tea Party to the Ku-Klux-Klan. Grayson made the remarks on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” with host Al Sharpton and escalated the attack by issuing a letter to his constituents depicting an image of a burning cross in place of the letter “T” for Tea Party. The image also had the following caption: “Now You Know What the ‘T’ Stands For.” Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, Founder and President of BOND Action and the South Central L.A. Tea Party, blasted the liberal Democrat. The following is his statement on this issue: “Rep. Alan Grayson has managed to insult both the Tea Party and sensible Black Americans with his outrageous and callous remarks. I grew up on a plantation near Montgomery, Alabama during Jim Crow and witnessed real racism. Klansmen murdered my great-grandfather. For Alan Grayson to cavalierly compare law-abiding Tea Party people to a violent and racist organization like the Ku-Klux-Klan is offensive and minimizes the suffering of Black Americans. “Alan Grayson is playing on the worst fears of Blacks in an attempt to continue the brainwashing tactics of the Democratic Party. He knows that for more than 160 years it has been the Democrats who have used the Ku-Klux-Klan, Jim Crow, and failing liberal policies to keep many blacks on the liberal Democrat’s plantation.
“Grayson’s latest actions show a lack of self-control and a complete disregard for the facts. I am seriously concerned about his sanity. It’s disturbing to know that this man is entrusted with our nation’s national security secrets. The South Central L.A. Tea Party is demanding that Congressman Grayson apologizes to black Americans and the Tea Party for his outrageous lies.” BOND Action and The South Central L.A. Tea Party were founded by Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson for the purpose of “educating, motivating, and rallying Americans to greater involvement in the moral, cultural, and political issues that threaten our great country.”
So what do you think about Ted Cruz’ faux filibuster. His continual talk will not stop a vote, but is that the reason that he is doing this? Some have labeled his efforts as narcissitic, but isn’t that a trait he shares with most modern politicians? What is his real end game? Is it his disdain for Obamacare or is it an attmept to appeal to his base? Is he really a true patriot or is this effort truly pathetic? Share your thoughts.

The IRS has admitted scrutinizing Tea party organizations more closely than other organizations applying for a tax exempt status and that was wrong. In 2004 the NAACP was audited by the IRS was this the same thing? Was it wrong? Is this politics?

Governor Nikki Haley has chosen Rep. Tim Scott as the replacement for Jim DeMint. While I do not agree with Scott’s political stance it is quite an accomplishment for a black man to sit in the hallowed halls of the Senate. This is a noteworthy accomplishment.
