The NYT Smear on Justice Kavanaugh is Part of a Larger Attack on the Judiciary

ATLANTA, GA – Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman, Jenny Beth Martin, released the following statement regarding a link between the New York Times piece smearing Justice Kavanaugh and a larger attack on the judiciary. "When you take a step back you can see how this is all part of a coordinated, unprecedented attack on the independent judiciary. This latest smear did not occur in a vacuum. It occurred after several Democratic Senators attacked the Supreme Court in a letter they made public, after many Democratic presidential candidates openly expressed support for packing the courts to gain everlasting liberal majorities, and now after ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: To Stop Socialism, There Needs To Be Awareness

Montana Republican Sen. Steve Daines introduced a new resolution—S. Res. 289—to denounce socialism as it “poses a significant threat to freedom, liberty and economic prosperity.” Is it necessary? Absolutely! The problem is very few people out there know and understand the incoming threat of socialism. RealClear Politics has Jenny Beth’s commentary: The truth of the Bennett “open gates” test is so obvious that if I did not know better, I would think the Daines resolution is irrelevant and unnecessary. Yet, according to the polling industry’s best practitioners, too many of our fellow citizens out there – tens of millio...

Ten Years of the Tea Party; We’re Not Going Anywhere

Ten years have gone by and the tea party movement is more important than ever! We started as a group of citizens fed up with the bad behavior in Washington and soon became a nationwide grassroots organization. It seems only yesterday that patriots all around the country were watching CNBC business news editor Rick Santelli rant about the housing crisis bailouts and saying everything that Americans were feeling. Hours after his rant, the tea party began its planning. In those early days, we organized a conference call, organized rallies, and got the word out. On February 27, 2009, the movement was coordinated across 40 different cities and people ...

Tea Party Patriots Action Weekly Report from Washington for 7/22/19

CALENDAR: The Senate will return on Monday, and the House will return on Tuesday. The Senate will stay in session through Thursday, but the House is currently scheduled to stay in session through Friday.

Tea Party Patriots Action Supports President Trump During Impeachment Efforts

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman, Jenny Beth Martin, responded to reports that the House will vote on Rep. Al Green’s impeachment efforts this week. “Under President Trump’s leadership, the American economy has finally broken out of its Obama-era stagnation and is now growing so fast it is the envy of the world. High-paying jobs are so plentiful that we have more job openings than we have unemployed laborers looking for work. Consequently, real wages are growing faster than inflation for the first time in memory, and America’s long-suffering middle class is finally beginning to catch up. “Yet the Democrats in ...

Tea Party Patriots Action Weekly Report from Washington for 7/15/19

CALENDAR: The House and Senate will both return on Monday, and stay in session through Thursday.   LAST WEEK ON THE HOUSE FLOOR: The House came back to work last Tuesday and took up and passed three bills under Suspension of the Rules. One of those bills was H.R. 1044, the so-called “Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act.” It was passed by a vote of 365-65, with 140 Republicans voting in favor and 57 Republicans voting against. We’ll talk more about that bill in a moment. On Thursday, the House took up and began consideration of H.R. 2500, the National Defense Authorization Act. Beginning right before 2 PM on Thursday, ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: Northam and VA Democrats’ Embarrassing Scheme

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam called for a special session this week to consider gun control measures that had already failed to pass in the legislature during the regular session. The call was made supposedly in response to the mass shooting at Virginia Beach back in May. Don’t be fooled—it was hardly about gun control.  Real Clear Politics has Jenny Beth’s commentary: Instead, let’s call the 90-minute special session of the Virginia legislature what it was – a desperate bid by the commonwealth’s top elected Democrats to change the subject, and a steadfast rebuke from the legislature’s majority Republicans. Earlier this year, Gov. ...

Qatar Must Honor Our Open Skies Agreements

Conservatives, including Jenny Beth Martin, sent President Trump an open letter this week urging him to stand up to Emir of Qatar for violating our Open Skies agreement. Breitbart has the details: “For years, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates violated their commitments under the Open Skies agreements by subsidizing their airlines. These subsidies allowed their airlines to compete unfairly against our airline industry, putting American companies and jobs at risk,” they wrote. They said although the Trump administration — unlike the Obama administration — has taken steps to address the violations, it has become clear in recent months ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: Net Neutrality was Just Govt. Overreach, Plain and Simple

One year ago this week, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reversed the Obama-era “net neutrality” policy which essentially allowed the government to regulate the internet. Jenny Beth has the commentary on Breitbart: “Neutrality,” like the word “fairness” and other liberal shibboleths, has a nice ring to it, but the true aims of net neutrality are a far cry from the benign-sounding name. Tim Wu, the Columbia Law School professor who coined the term “net neutrality,” explained to members of Congress the purpose of the policy. The regulations that comprise net neutrality exist to give the FCC the ability to shape “media ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: The Case for Trump’s Immigration Proposal

There’s a reason why we have immigration laws – why most countries have immigration laws. Unfortunately, our government has spent decades refusing to enforce our current laws and refusing to make any attempts to address the growing threat of illegal immigration. Recently, President Trump addressed the inconsistencies in our current immigration system. As of right now, 87 percent of current legal immigrants come here on the basis of random chance and not on the basis of merit. President Trump aims to change that. Breitbart has Jenny Beth Martin’s commentary: So, under the immigration policy in place right now, 87 percent of current legal ...
