Atlanta, Ga. – Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting to former Attorney General William Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“Former Attorney General William Barr’s testimony gave him the opportunity to show his determination to uphold the Constitution, follow the rule of law, and act in the best interests of the American people. With an independent voice, not swayed by partisan politics, he should be confirmed unanimously with bipartisan support. He proved himself to ...
President Trump partially shut down the government because Democrats failed to compromise with him on a solution to a major immigration problem. Despite negative media coverage, Office of Management and Budget Director Russell Vought and President Trump have tried to make the current partial shutdown "as painless as possible." Quite the opposite was done during the Obama Administration’s 2013 shutdown when the response was "make it as painful as possible."
The Daily Caller has the story:
Vought joined the OMB in early 2018 and assumed the role of acting director ...
Democratic lawmakers refuse to look at the facts: illegal immigration in our country is out of control. About 85 percent of the migrants that have crossed over our borders in the past three months came over illegally. About 90 percent of the heroin coming into this country comes from the southern border. Americans are responsible for paying over $70,000 per illegal immigrant and that number keeps going up. When will members of Congress take this issue seriously?
The Daily Caller has Jenny Beth's commentary:
Illegal immigration is destructive to the American commun...
Now that Democrats have control of the House, they have begun pushing their gun control agenda. Their latest push has been to regulate private sales and transfers with universal background checks. Already law in a few states like Washington, universal background checks would require gun owners to go through a licensed dealer in order to buy, sell or transfer a firearm. Such laws are unenforceable and place a burden on law enforcement as well as lawful gun owners. Not to mention, such a law would not be enforceable without a gun registry.

“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. It is unfortunate that the nation is faced with a humanitarian and national security crisis of this magnitude -- 'a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul’ — but I have ...
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 ...
