Tea Time with Judson Phillips

Judson Phillips

Judson Phillips

Judson Phillips is the founder of Tea Party Nation, one of the largest Tea Party Groups in the country and the number one national tea party site on the Internet.A lawyer by profession, Judson has been involved in politics since his teens. “Ronald Reagan inspired me,” he says.Judson became involved in the Tea Party movement in February 2009 after hearing Rick Santelli’s rant on CNBC.   “I heard there was going to be a Tea Party in Chicago inspired by Santelli, but didn’t know if anyone was doing a rally in Nashville where I was based.  Finally I emailed Michelle Malkin and asked her if there was a Tea Party in Nashville.  Malkin sent an email back saying, ‘No, why don’t you organize one?’  I did.”The first Tea Party in Nashville was held late February 2009 which drew a crowd of about 600. Judson then organized the Tax Day Tea Party in Nashville, which drew over 10,000 people into downtown.   It was at this time that Tea Party Nation was formed.  Later that year, Judson decided to bring activists from across the country together, so he organized the first National Tea Party Convention in February 2010, which featured Alaska’s former Governor and Republican Vice Presidential Nominee, Sarah Palin as it’s keynote speaker.He currently manages the Tea Party Nation website, writes several daily columns and is working on more projects than any one person should.  He is a frequent guest on cable and broadcast news shows, including on Fox, MSNBC, CNN and others.

Turning the tables on racial stereotype

Charlotte Bergmann is a black woman who openly embraces the tea party. If you believe the left-wing media, she doesn’t exist, if you believe the liberals, you are more likely to see a unicorn than a Charlotte Bergmann.

It is hard to believe that a few decades ago the Sierra Club was mostly confined to California and most of its members were Republicans. Back then, the Sierra Club cared for conservation. Today it boldly embraces a radical left wing environmental agenda.

Boycott liberals, not hamburgers

Sherrod Brown is the personification of what is wrong with Congress, Democrats and liberals. His latest pronouncement is simply an indictment of his intellectual deficiencies and his lack of qualifications to be a United States Senator.
