The Ongoing Fight Against Socialism

We have a lot to celebrate this week! We kicked off our ten-year anniversary by highlighting the Rick Santelli rant that started it all, and this week we celebrated the first nationwide tea party rallies. We didn’t know where it would lead when we started, but we hoped America would wake-up. Fast-forward to today, we now have a new administration trying to drain the murky swamp leftover by the Obama administration, and an uprising of deranged Democrats attempting to promote socialism. We won’t let it happen! Jenny Beth Martin discusses what’s ahead for the Tea ...

Tea Party Patriots Action Responds to Legislation that Expands Gun Control

Atlanta, GA -- Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin responds to new gun control legislation expanding background checks for gun sales. “Once again, liberals have shown they care about grandstanding more than they care about passing legislation that will actually make positive changes. Neither HR 8 (the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019) nor HR 1112 (the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2019) would have prevented the Parkland tragedy. Parkland was a complete failure by government from top to bottom — state, local and federal — to ...

Patriot Spotlight: Suzanne Guggenheim

To kick off our anniversary celebrating ten years of the tea party, we are doing a weekly spotlight of our members and activists. “It must have been an act of God,” Suzanne Guggenheim said. Ten years ago, she was sitting in her office with the TV on when the voice of Rick Santelli blasted out. She was instantly captivated and at that very moment, Suzanne decided that she was going to be part of it. She started looking everywhere online about how she could get involved and throw an upcoming “Tea Party.” Suzanne was born in Hungary near the end of WWII and was ...

Tea Party Patriots Action: “Single-Payer Is NOT the Answer”

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin today responded to proposed ‘Medicare for All’ legislation set to be introduced: “’Medicare for All’ — better described as ‘single-payer’ health care, because it does away with all private insurance and turns over all decision-making power to government bureaucrats — is not the answer for the American health-care system. It's worth remembering that prior to the imposition of ObamaCare, 80% of Americans were satisfied with the quality of health care they received, and happy ...

Patriot Spotlight: Keli Carender

To kick off our anniversary celebrating ten years of the tea party, we are doing a weekly spotlight of our members and activists. Our first patriot has been with the tea party since the very beginning. Keli Carender was not your typical tea party activist or conservative. At the time, she was a 29-year-old woman with a B.S. in Biology and Math and had a teaching degree in secondary math from the University of Oxford. She was heavily involved in improv and theater. She never thought she would become an activist and organizer of the tea party. She began her activism ...

Tea Party Patriots Action Supports the President’s National Emergency Declaration

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin responds to President Trump signing the bill to fund the government and declaring a national emergency at our southern border. Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin: “Tea Party Patriots Action supports President Trump’s decision to declare a national emergency at our southern border.  It is maddening that Democrats in Congress refuse to acknowledge the crisis at our border and instead choose politics over the safety, security, and in many cases, the lives of the ...

Medicare for All: No One Wins

“Medicare for All” is not a new idea; however, it’s gaining momentum amongst many Democrats— even amongst many who have thrown their hats into the ring for the 2020 presidential election. Unfortunately, their voter base won’t fully understand what they’re giving up if they get “Medicare for All.” The Hill has the story: Once the government is paying for the entire nation’s health care, watch your tax bill soar. A single middle-class guy currently paying a 24 percent marginal tax rate will get clobbered with a life-changing 60 percent rate instead. Say ...

Tea Party Patriots Action Falls Down, Gets Up, Comments on the Border Wall Funding Deal

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin, after picking herself up off the floor — the floor to which she had fallen after reading some of the scant details of the “deal” reached by congressional “negotiators” — had several very unkind things to say: “For more than three decades, we have been promised border security. For more than three decades, like Charlie Brown falling for Lucy’s football trick, we have allowed ourselves to be hoodwinked. We have had enough. “This so-called ‘deal’ is worse than a joke. It ...
