Watch Tea Party Patriots’ Jenny Beth Martin demonstrate how to defend the Supreme Court!

Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin this week during a Facebook Live broadcast encouraged viewers to visit http://tpp.us/defendthesupremecourt and sign up to host a #ConfirmGorsuch house party in an effort to maximize the social-media buzz surrounding the confirmation process of conservative Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch. “There’s a reason why we encourage people to use social media. There are studies that show that some members of Congress can be influenced by as few as 30 tweets, and we’ve all seen how much a single tweet from President Trump can get – how much media attention that can get,” said Jenny Beth. ...

Senate Finance Committee Democrats holding up Rep. Price, Mnuchin nominations

Senate Democrats are stalling a committee vote on whether to refer Health and Human Services Secretary Nominee Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) for a full Senate vote, having declined to attend the committee meeting that would have launched him to that point in the confirmation process – and, like those of us at Tea Party Patriots, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) is not amused… The Hill has the details: Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee boycotted votes to advance Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), Trump’s pick to head the Department of Health and Human Services, and Steven Mnuchin, his selection to head the Treasury Department. The ...

Policy expert: Issues at Veterans Affairs ‘not a money problem’

Policy expert: Issues at Veterans Affairs ‘not a money problem' The seemingly endless stream of scandals pouring out of President Obama’s Veterans Affairs department — a recent one being the secret quality rating system applied to the different VA medical facilities — isn’t a lack of financial resources but a personnel problem that needs to be addressed head-on by the new administration, policy expert Betsy McCaughey says in a recent column. The New York Post has the commentary: It’s not a money problem. Congress appropriated a record $163 billion to the VA in 2016, more than the department requested. The real problem is a lack ...

Jenny Beth Martin: Democrat stalling, blocking Trump cabinet picks hypocritical

Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin in a recent column points out that Democrat stalling confirmation of President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet nominees is unfair considering many of President Obama’s nominees were unanimously confirmed upon his inauguration. The Washington Times has the commentary: Senate Democrats, reports Politico, are planning to “give Trump Cabinet picks the [Merrick] Garland treatment,” including “a grinding confirmation process, weighing delay tactics that could eat up weeks of the Senate calendar and hamper [Trump’s] first 100 days in office.” Further, Politico elaborates, at least five ...

Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) in a joint opinion piece announced their intentions to next month introduce a constitutional amendment that would impose limits on the time one is allowed to serve in congressional office to two and three terms in the Senate and House, respectively. The Washington Post has the commentary: The American people have offered Republicans an opportunity to enact meaningful change. They have rejected the status quo and put the Washington elites on notice that they will no longer accept the old way of doing business. It is well past time to put an end to the cronyism that has transformed ...
