LAST WEEK ON THE HOUSE FLOOR:

On Wednesday, the House passed another bill under Suspension. Then ...
“President Trump is showing the American people that he is serious about protecting our southern border. At the border today, President Trump said ‘This is common sense. They need a barrier. They need a wall. Without it there will be hard work, grueling work and death...It’s not about politics for me. It is about doing the right thing.’ President Trump is right to take a principled stand on what needs to be done to protect all Americans. We stand with President Trump on his commonsense approach in his fight to secure our southern border.”
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced that he is leaving his role in the next few weeks, a move that Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund has been calling for. Rosenstein has blocked Congress’ efforts to provide legitimate and constitutional oversight to the Justice Department. He has also allegedly said he would secretly wear a wire to record President Trump and also discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment as a means to remove the president from power. His actions show that he was not on Team Trump from the very beginning and never ...
Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin responds to President Trump’s Address on the humanitarian and national security crisis at the Southern Border from the Oval Office.
”Tonight, President Trump addressed the nation and assured the American people that he is determined to keep his promise to secure our southern border and keep our country safe.

Atlanta, GA -- Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin responds to unhinged behavior exhibited by Democrats at the start of the 116th Congress.
“The 116th Congress is barely one day old, and already new members of the House Democratic caucus are going off the deep end with unhinged behavior, with intentions and actions they hid from American voters in 2018. One member publicly used the vulgar word 'motherf****r' — in front of her own son, no less — in calling for the President's impeachment. Another is already calling for tax rates as high as ...
Good morning, and thank you for coming out so early. Given that we’re in Las Vegas, I’m reminded of something Frank Sinatra used to say – he felt sorry for people who don’t drink, because when they wake up in the morning, that’s the best they’re going to feel all day.
Now, I don’t drink. But at this hour of the morning, I think I know what he was talking about.
We’re here this morning to kick off the third day of Freedom Fest 2018, and I want to welcome you to the third day of the largest gathering of free-thinking people in the world.
Tomorrow, in ...
“We the undersigned are sick & tired of secret bills that nobody reads, obstruction of Presidential nominations, reckless special interest spending and debt, constant government shutdown drama, and too many vacations with too little work. Congress should delay August recess until government funding legislation has been openly debated in the House and Senate with a full opportunity for votes on amendments, and is approved by both houses and sent to the President; and the Senate should delay August recess until sufficient progress has been made confirming the Preside...
Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin today released the results of a national survey of 1,000 likely voters conducted for TPPA June 15-19 by John McLaughlin of McLaughlin & Associates that shows that House Republicans considering voting for legislation containing amnesty for so-called “Dreamers” do so at their own peril.
“As House Republicans consider their votes on the Goodlatte-McCaul bill and the Ryan ‘Leadership’ bill, they should be aware that voting for either bill – both of which contain amnesty for a certain class of ...
