Bipartisanship on Amnesty: The Poison Pill

Over the last few weeks, pressure has built on the House to pass the Senate’s amnesty bill. So far, Speaker Boehner is holding strong on not even considering the bill, favoring smaller, more concise bills rather than the Obamacare style bill passed by the Senate: House Speaker John Boehner is sticking to his position: The House will not vote on the Senate-passed immigration bill. “I’ve made it clear and I’ll make it clear again, the House does not intend to take up the Senate bill,” Boehner said Monday. “The House is going to do its own job in developing an immigration bill.” Senate Majority Leader Reid is, of course, declaring that ...

Head-in-sand Syndrome: Media voices say deficit is not a problem

Since the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released its latest projections on the national debt this past Tuesday, a chorus of voices has claimed our short-term and/or medium-term deficit problems are largely solved. Unfortunately, these voices are relying on unrealistic assumptions in the CBO’s report. Whenever the CBO releases its budget projections, it includes a “baseline,” or “current law,” scenario. Current law assumes what is on the books will stay on the books. However, since this rarely happens, CBO created a “current policy,” or “alternative fiscal,” scenario, in which certain deficit reduction measures do not go into ...

Help after Hurricane Sandy

Over the last two days, Hurricane Sandy has hit the North Atlantic seaboard hard. More than 30 people have died, and at least six million people are without power. Estimates of total damage are well into the billions. One way we can help our fellow patriots recover from the storm is to donate money to trustworthy charitable organizations like the Red Cross.  We know money is tight, given the economy, but if you could donate even just $5 to the Red Cross, we know your fellow countrymen will be grateful. Thank you.

Jenny Beth Martin’s Speech at the Western Conservative Summit

Who here wants elected officials to vote based on principles and convictions, regardless of the consequences?  Regardless of whether they will lose their chairmanships, committee appointments, and other perks of office?

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Patriot Act Renewal: Senate Overwhelmingly Votes To Proceed “…Conservative groups are arguing against McConnell’s amendments, and that could augur trouble in the House. So far, the USA Freedom Act has enjoyed unusual support from both tea party groups and the American Civil Liberties Union. “We support passage of the USA Freedom Act as passed by the House, and see no need whatsoever for these amendments which are obviously designed to weaken the bill,” Tea Party Patriots CEO Jenny Beth Martin said in a statement. “Simply put, if it is amended in the manner that the Majority Leader desires, we will be forced to ...

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, ...
