Three years ago, the Tea Party movement was savagely attacked by the Internal Revenue Service in an attempt to bully us into submission and silence.
Thousands of innocent grassroots conservatives like you and me found themselves on the receiving end of audits, threats, and onerous interrogations.
Years later, the IRS is still stonewalling. The IRS commissioner, John Koskinen, is defending the likes of Lois Lerner and her henchmen.
Thankfully, the Republican members of Congress are finally doing something about it. They have proposed a bill to impeach John Koskinen. We must back them up and ensure Koskinen is removed from office!
Trevor Loudon was in town, recently. The famed commie-hunter from New Zealand said his upcoming documentary 'The Enemies Within' is about two-third's funded. The film, a follow-up to Trevor's book of the same title "expos[es] the communists, socialists and progressives within the U.S. Congress."
Farming in Fear premiered at the prestigious Anthem Film Festival on July 11 in Las Vegas, where it captured two awards: Best Short Documentary and Audience Choice. Farming in Fear tells the story of Martha Boneta, a young, idealistic woman who fulfills her childhood dream of buying and operating a small organic farm; but actions by a web of connected groups and individuals threaten to put her out of business.
Farming in Fear examines the nearly 10-year ordeal a local Virginia farmer fought in order to earn a living operating her small farm. Despite obstacles created by local government and personal attacks, Martha Boneta never gave up on her dream. The 28-minute documentary takes viewers through her battle, from the treatment she received from local officials to the introduction of the "Boneta Bill" - protection for small farmers ensuring that they will never experience what Martha did.
Join us for a screening of Farming in Fear followed by a conversation with
Martha Boneta, Businesswoman and Virginia Farmer Bonner Cohen, Senior Fellow, National Center for Public Policy Research Kevin Mooney, Freelance Reporter, The Daily Signal

Congrats to Anna Urman on Her Campaign
Congratulations to ATP member Anna Urman on her recent campaign for state delegate from 43rd district. Anna is one of a number of Tea Partiers around the country who have run for office. While not successful this time, Anna set a wonderful example for all of us to get more involved in our government. Republics cannot work without civic engagement; they were never meant to. Anna is already back in the fight, and we look forward to her future accomplishments.
