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 ...

The impending crisis of Social Security and Medicare may be heading our way a lot sooner than we thought. Social Security will become insolvent by 2035 and Medicare will be depleted by 2026 under current projections. How did we get to this point?

And from where I sit, the people who pay the tab should be the people who ate the meal – not their children, who weren’t even at the table. For decades, Americans have been on the receiving end of what should have been taxpayer-provided benefits but ...

Tea Party Patriots Action Urges the U.S. Senate to Confirm The President’s Judicial Nominees

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, urging the U.S. Senate to confirm all of President Trump’s judicial nominees. “President Trump is keeping his promise to nominate exceptionally qualified judges with a record of adhering to the Constitution and following the rule of law. But because Senate Democrats have engaged in an unprecedented campaign of obstruction, there are now more than 160 lower federal court vacancies – more than existed when President Trump first took office.

Jenny Beth Martin: Congress needs to forgo recess to get more work done for Americans

Congress never allows its own bad behavior or lack of accomplishment to get in the way of its vacations and recesses. Isn’t it about time we addressed that? The dysfunctions within Congress are too numerous to explore here, but two of the most obvious examples are the broken confirmations and appropriations processes. Both of these examples of brokenness on Capitol Hill are greatly exacerbated by recesses. In the case of the broken confirmation process, consider this: President Trump has had far fewer nominees confirmed at this point in his administration than any of his four predecessor presidents. Despite the fact that Republicans control ...
