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 ...

The Lying McConnell is Trying to Revive a Govt Agency

This is the closest thing to a unicorn we’ve ever seen. A government agency has shut its doors, and we have a small window of time to ensure that it stays that way! We're talking about the Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has continuously opposed the reauthorization of Ex-Im publicly, but today he decided he will allow the Highway Bill to come to the floor with only two amendments – an amendment to repeal Obamacare and an amendment to reauthorize Ex-Im. We know the Obamacare vote is a show vote because it would require 60 votes to pass. This is the Senate Majority Leader’s way of trying to appease conserva...

Tea Party Patriots: “Liberty 2, McConnell 0”

Tea Party Defeats Sen. McConnell for Second Time This Week Atlanta, GA - Tea Party Patriots CEO Jenny Beth Martin and the American people declared victory this afternoon, after the Senate rejected Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's attempts to weaken and, ultimately, defeat the USA FREEDOM Act as passed by the House. After rejecting the Majority Leader's desire to renew the PATRIOT Act earlier this week, today's Senate action to maintain the USA FREEDOM Act in its original form was icing on the cake. "The American people have spoken: Security and freedom do NOT have to be mutually exclusive" said Martin.  “Bless his heart,” she continued, ...

New IRS emails: Lerner knew what she was doing, and so did John McCain, apparently

New emails obtained by Judicial Watch shine even more light on the depth of the IRS targeting scandal. As much as the left would like for America to be convinced the scandal is over, it is far from it. Among the new revelations is a February 2012 email in which Lois Lerner, then head of the IRS’ Exempt Organizations ranch, asked for a new program to be set up that would “put together some training to help [IRS staffers] understand the potential pitfalls” of giving away too much information to Congress. Another 2013 email reveals that Lerner said she is willing to take the blame for not providing adequate direction to staffers on their ...

Sasse, McHenry Bills Target Amnesty Payouts (Jenny Beth Martin Op-Ed in Roll Call)

For conservatives concerned with America’s sovereignty and border security, there have been some setbacks since November.

Yesterday we told you about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s plan to pass a “clean” DHS funding bill and then attempt to bring up a separate bill that purports to defund President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty... Continue here.

ACTION ALERT: Call McConnell now. Tell him no amnesty!

This week is critical for conservatives and President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty. The House successfully passed a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) funding bill that also rolled back the president’s amnesty program. But it’s yet to get through the Senate, despite the Republican majority American voters bequeathed their elected officials last November. We need everyone to call Majority Leader Mitch McConnell NOW at 202-224-2541 and tell him to keep his promise and stop Obama’s amnesty! While Democrats have blocked the bill over and over again, Senate Republicans, who are supposedly fighting for limited government, are ...
