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

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.

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 ...
