A Message to House Republicans: Think Like Uber (Jenny Beth Martin Op-Ed in the Daily Caller)

Are House Republicans about to repeat the same mistake that got them into their current mess? John Boehner’s decision to give up his speakership allows the members of the House Republican Conference a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make a mid-course correction. But if media reports are correct, they plan to elevate current Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy to the speakership by virtual acclamation in next week’s Leadership elections. That would be a terrible mistake, and an opportunity wasted. Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2015/10/01/a-message-to-house-republicans-think-like-uber/#ixzz3nL3kHMnk

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told CBS News that President Obama's Iran nuclear deal will "likely" be "revisited by the next commander in chief" but that Senate Republicans are throwing in the towel on the issue and moving on to other legislation.

The Iran Deal Must Be Stopped, and We Can Do It (Jenny Beth Martin Op-Ed in The Hill)

It seems the more we learn about the Obama-Iran nuclear deal, the clearer it becomes that it is a rotten deal for the United States and our allies.  Americans by a 2-to-1 margin oppose the Iran deal and even high-profile Democrats in Congress are beginning to see President Obama’s folly in striking this deal with Iran.

There is bipartisan agreement on Capitol Hill that President Barack Obama’s unilateral agreement with Iran – the world’s largest state sponsor of terror – is reckless and will enable Iran to get a nuclear weapon within the next decade.   Read more at Breibart.com: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/08/27/martin-how-grassroots-activists-can-stop-the-iran-deal-starting-today/

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 ...

Ex-Im Bank Still Expired…For Now

Despite attempts by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and some Republican Senators to resurrect the Export-Import Bank after its authorization lapsed, the Ex-Im Bank will stay shuttered…for now. Over the past week while debating the highway bill, Sen. McConnell denied votes on amendments popular with conservatives and Republicans, including full repeal of Obamacare and a vote to end Congress’s special exemption from Obamacare, while allowing a vote on an amendment to reauthorize the Ex-Im Bank. Last weekend and during this week, activists called their Senators and demanded they not revive the Bank because it is a symbol of cronyism and ...


It’s for real. Tonight, Sen. Mike Lee of Utah plans to offer an amendment to H.R. 22, the “Hire More Heroes Act” – that’s the House-passed vehicle the Senate is using as a placeholder for a six-year highway funding bill. The Lee amendment would, if enacted, repeal ObamaCare. But because the amendment has nothing to do with highway spending, the presiding officer of the Senate likely will rule it out of order.

New Docs Reveal IRS Deliberately Targeted Donors to Obama Critics

WASHINGTON, DC – Jenny Beth Martin, President and Co-Founder of Tea Party Patriots, responded today to new evidence that the IRS deliberately targeted for personal audits donors to tax-exempt organizations, and released the following statement: “Make a donation to an opponent of the President’s policies, get audited. According to these new IRS documents – which we’re just now seeing, thanks to Judicial Watch and its FOIA lawsuits – that was standard operating procedure at the most feared federal agency of all, the Internal Revenue Service, in the months leading up to the President’s 2012 reelection campaign. “That, in a nutshell, ...
