Read Jenny Beth’s column in The Washington Times: Over the years, the president’s gun-control agenda has met bipartisan opposition in Congress, so he did what he so often does: He acted unilaterally, bypassing Congress and the U.S. Constitution.

Jenny Beth Martin: It’s up to the Supreme Court to end Pres. Obama’s lawless executive amnesty

Atlanta, GA — Tea Party Patriots CEO and Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today regarding the Supreme Court's decision to hear a challenge to President Obama's executive amnesty program: “It’s up to the Supreme Court to end this lawlessness, since Congress declined to use its power of the purse to stop President Obama’s plan to unilaterally grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants.

Here is her blueprint for Congress: First up, the two issues that fall short of the 77 percent threshold (but each of which, nevertheless, garners 60 percent support among all likely voters, and far greater support among Republicans and Independents): Repeal of the Affordable Care Act, and across-the-board tax reform that creates a system that’s simpler, fairer and ...

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today after President Obama’s announcement of new executive orders affecting Americans’ Second-Amendment rights. “President Obama’s latest executive action unilaterally restricting Americans’ Second-Amendment rights is the first salvo in his final-year assault on our constitutional system of government.

Even the NYT acknowledges one reason why Americans despise Obamacare

The New York Times Sunday ran a story detailing the reason millions of Americans are choosing to forego health insurance and instead opt for the IRS penalty: because it's the less expensive of the two options. Here's the story from the New York Times: Clint Murphy let the deadline for getting health insurance by the new year pass without a second thought. Mr. Murphy, an engineer in Sulphur Springs, Tex., estimates that under the Affordable Care Act, he will face a penalty of $1,800 for going uninsured in 2016. But in his view, paying that penalty is worth it if he can avoid buying an insurance policy that costs $2,900 or more. All he has to do ...

Failures of the Obama Doctrine (Jenny Beth Martin’s Weekly Column in the Washington Times)

The signature feature of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy has been his administration’s dangerous combination of naiveté and bumbling incompetence. From underestimating the threat of ISIS, to miscalculating Russian President Vladimir Putin’s determination to implement an aggressive power-projection agenda in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, to mismanaging the conflict in Syria, to losing our hard-fought victory in Iraq, President Obama’s foreign policy failures are numerous - and Americans are less safe as a result.
