Memo from Jenny Beth Martin Addressing Tea Party Patriots’ Involvement Fighting Amnesty

In light of a recent article that appeared on Breitbart News entitled “Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Encourages Conservatives to Give Rubio Chance to Implement Immigration Agenda,” it is necessary to correct the record about our organization’s deep commitment over the past few years to preventing amnesty and defending the rule of law. The background story behind that Breitbart piece is that I wrote a short op-ed for USA Today in which I defended politicians who change their minds. USA Today requested the article and specifically asked for a defense of the concept of “flip-flopping” by politicians. The paper asked me to reflect on both ...

Congress’ ObamaCare Exemption May Cause Political Trouble At Home (Jenny Beth Martin Op-Ed in Investor’s Business Daily)

Did the Internal Revenue Service just blow Congress' cover? Because what the IRS just did is going to ensure that an awful lot of small-business owners (every member's favorite politically approved special interest) find out something Congress wants very much to keep hidden — its special exemption from ObamaCare. Beginning on July 1, the IRS started imposing a penalty on small-business ...

Jenny Beth Martin Voices Her Opposition to the Iran Nuclear “Deal”

Last week I joined Senator Ted Cruz, Congressman Louie Gohmert, and others at a press event in Senator Cruz’s office to voice our concerns over President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran. My original reservations about this deal were based on the fact that the President was rushing the deal to the United Nations before Congress even had a chance to review the agreement. In my mind, the only thing that is keeping this from being a treaty is the fact that the Administration refuses to call it a treaty. If it walks like a treaty and talks like a treaty, then it should be handled as a treaty and be subject to authorization by no less than two thirds of ...

Jenny Beth Martin Responds to Senator McConnell’s vow to avoid Government Shutdowns.

It is no surprise that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would take it upon himself to unilaterally vow that there would be no future government shut downs.  He's forgotten about his vow to uphold the Constitution. When he starts negotiating the power of Congress - the power of the purse - it makes it much easier for President Obama to win. Republicans were elected to the majority in the Senate to be a roadblock to the Obama agenda. Everyday Americans across this country increasingly wonder what the difference is between Mitch McConnell controlling the Senate and Harry Reid controlling the Senate. That's a problem. It is absurd to see ...
