Further Proof The Establishment Still Doesn’t Get The Tea Party

Further Proof The Establishment Still Doesn’t Get The Tea Party

Dave Brat’s historic upset of conservative-in-name-only (CINO) pro-amnesty Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor not only made the GOP establishment go temporarily insane, it showed, once again, that even after seven years, the Washington elites still have no concept of what the Tea Party really is.

Commerce Department Says First-Quarter GDP Shrank More Than First Reported

9th Circuit Again Justifies Government’s Theft Of Property

Last July, I told you about a case involving California raisin growers and their battle with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Depression-era Raisin Administrative Committee. That case is now back in the news — and likely headed back to the Supreme Court — after the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals again ruled in favor of the raisin cartel by upholding its authority to fix prices and steal half of a farmer’s raisin crop without compensation.

It began when California raisin growers Marvin and Lena Horne, owners of Raisin Valley Farms, decided they were tired of complying with crop set-asides established arbitrarily by a bunch of paper-shuffling government functionaries, especially once the government went back on its agreement and quit compensating them for what it took.
