Santa Barbara Tea Party is a nonpartisan grassroots group of citizens dedicated to defending the principles set forth by America’s Founding Fathers. We are inspired by American heroes, from George Washington to Dolly Madison to Teddy Roosevelt, who have fought for and represent the American Dream.
We are the core group that created and delivered Santa Barbara’s April 4, 2009 Tea Party with Lloyd Marcus and Tammy Bruce that garnered international media attention and spawned other tea parties along the coast. Our activities provide an open public platform for education and advocacy toward our specific goals of Rebuilding Prosperity (via a free market and limited government) and Preservation of Liberty (through the Constitution).
Get involved. Let your Voice be Heard. Meet like-minded patriots.

2012 Election Analysis
I don’t presuppose to be an expert on elections. This is an analysis from just an everyday person who was watching what happened in the 2012 election and is really upset with the outcome. What went wrong? There are a multitude of factors that sealed the outcome of this campaign. I’ve seen analysts that focus on one or the other factor, but, it seems to me, that there was a broad collection of factors that made this election turn out so badly for Republicans. I take a look at the candidate, the Republican Party, how this election turned out so differently than 2010, what the Democrats did successfully, and how treachery affected the outcome.
Excused by Incompetence: Justice Department Inspector General Testifies on Scathing Fast & Furious Report
Finds Systemic Failure, Public Endangerment and Lack of Accountability under Holder
The 471-page report released on September 19, 2012 by the Department of Justice’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz is a step toward restoring the public’s faith in the Department of Justice. It confirms what the Oversight Committee has known for quite some time: the Department of Justice has let the American people down.
Specifically, it confirms the fundamental conclusions found in the Committee’s 19-month investigation of Operation Fast and Furious. This includes the inexcusable response from senior Department officials to legitimate inquiries from Congress.
Fast and Furious was a breach of the public trust. It contributed to the tragic murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and the deaths of countless innocent Mexican citizens.
Congressional Republicans on Wednesday spotlighted a newly revealed email that shows Obama administration officials were told within hours of the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that an al-Qaeda-inspired militant group had claimed responsibility for the assault.
After the White House and State Department downplayed the significance of the email Wednesday, Republican Sens. John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte sent a letter to President Obama asking why U.S. officials “described the attack for days afterward as a spontaneous response to an anti-Islam video.”
