TPP requests intel committees investigate illegal leaks

March 23, 2017 Chairman Burr, Vice Chairman Warner, Rep. Conaway and Ranking Member Schiff: I write as president of an organization with over 2 million supporters nationwide, an organization that has directly felt the heavy hand of persecution by the very government we support with our taxes. With respect, our question to you with regard to the investigation into alleged Russian interference and meddling in the last presidential election – on behalf of all law-abiding Americans – is what happened to the emphasis and focus on a) the illegal release of classified information to the news media, and b) the unmasking of law-abiding American ...

Jenny Beth Martin on IRS targeting scandal: ‘We need to know what happened’

Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin appeared on Fox & Friends this week to demand that the impending testimony of the former government executives at the center of the IRS targeting scandal is made public and not sealed as the two women have requested out of fear for their safety. “They need to be kept safe; I absolutely think that needs to happen. I know what it’s like when threats are made against you and you want to feel safe but we need to know what happened. They need to testify and the public needs to hear that testimony to be able to get to the bottom of what happened to us so we can finally have justice,” says Jenny ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: America deserves to know why former President Obama’s IRS officials targeted tea-party groups

The former IRS officials at the center of the scandal that targeted Americans for their political beliefs are arguing, ahead of a Friday hearing in a federal class-action lawsuit brought against the agency, that their testimony be sealed out of fear their lives could be threatened if the testimony is made public – something the women should have considered before deciding to unfairly target Americans, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin says in a recent column. The Hill has the commentary: Let me say this clearly — threats like that are not acceptable. Law enforcement authorities should do all they can to keep Lerner and Paz safe, ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: FTC needs commissioners who respect intellectual property

The Federal Trade Commission under President Obama was derelict in its duty to protect the intellectual-property rights of a company whose technology helped vault Apple to a nearly $600 billion company – and that same negligence continues to this day, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin writes in a recent column. The Washington Examiner has the details: That's exactly what is happening in the case of an Apple-backed "anti-trust" suit designed to help the company avoid paying for the intellectual property it uses in the iPhone. Apple is engaged in a world-wide legal campaign against its suppliers, particularly Qualcomm, in an attempt ...

Newly crowned Miss USA Kara McCullough says healthcare is a ‘privilege’

Newly crowned Miss USA Kara McCullough was the object of liberal derision Sunday night after the beauty queen – in response to host Julianne Hough’s question on whether “affordable healthcare” is a right – said healthcare is a “privilege” and that healthcare should go hand-in-hand with jobs. “I’m definitely going to say it’s a privilege. As a government employee, I am granted healthcare and I see first-hand that – for one to have healthcare – you need to have jobs. So, therefore, we need to continue to cultivate this environment that we’re the given the opportunities to have healthcare as well as jobs to all the American ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: Celebrate Trump – here’s why

The crowning jewel of President Donald J. Trump’s presidency is the successful appointment of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court – imagine if another justice with a record of interpreting the Constitution as the founders intended it is also appointed to the Supreme Court. The reasons to celebrate President Trump’s November victory are “just beginning,” says Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin in her latest column. The Washington Times has the commentary: What’s better than another Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court? How about another Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court and another 10 Antonin Scalias on lower ...

“Late Night Show” host Stephen Colbert has been unapologetic since receiving backlash from conservatives and liberals alike for his obscene comments about President Donald J. Trump – comments so offensive the hashtag #FireColbert started trending for a hot second before being buried under other news. But we remember, and will continue to boycott Stephen Colbert. Will you join us? The Washington Times has the commentary: As Americans, we have broad freedom of choice because of our free-market system and competition. If we do not like what Colbert is saying on CBS, we can switch to a different channel. But, if we want to make an even more ...
