Liberty is on the Rise in the Keystone & Wolverine States

Last Saturday, March 28, Tea Party Patriots continued sponsoring the most recent Young Americans for Liberty convention at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. This two part, all-day event was a conference with free-market speakers and a training session for young patriots eager to become more effective in spreading the message of liberty. They afternoon were Jeffrey Tucker from Liberty.me, Ty Hicks of YAL, and Azhar Majeed of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE). In addition, on March 14, Tea Party Patriots sponsored the YAL state convention in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at Duquesne University. More than 75 liberty-m...

Statement of Jenny Beth Martin on Ted Cruz’s announcement

It’s fitting that Sen. Ted Cruz will be the first announced candidate in the GOP presidential field. In his two short years in the Senate, he has yielded to no one in championing the values of personal freedom, economic freedom and a debt-free future. As the field expands, we will look forward to seeing how the other candidates advance the liberty movement and put forward conservative solutions to undoing the mess our ‘transformational’ president has made of our Republic.

Jenny Beth Martin Statement on Ted Cruz’s pending announcement

It’s fitting that Sen. Ted Cruz will be the first announced candidate in the GOP presidential field. In his two short years in the Senate, he has yielded to no one in championing the values of personal freedom, economic freedom and a debt-free future.

Honest Assessments in the Hawkeye State

Photo: TPP’s Gregg Cummings addressed more than 40 tea party activists in Council Bluffs, IA   In Iowa on St. Patrick’s Day, instead of chasing snakes out of Ireland, patriots strategized how to chase establishment candidates out of Washington, D.C. Hosted by the Council Bluffs (Iowa) Tea Party at the local library, more than 40 patriots heard presentations from Tea Party Patriots, Iowa Grassroots Coalition, and True the Vote about how movement conservatives can pick the best candidate. As Iowa hosts the “First-in-the-Nation” Presidential Primary, voters in that state will soon be bombarded with commercials and direct contact ...

Statement of Jenny Beth Martin on Boehner’s latest cave

“Sadly, we’ve seen yet another reason why conservatives do not and should not trust Establishment Republicans. Rewarded by the American people with historic majorities for opposing executive amnesty, their capitulation began almost immediately. “First, Speaker Boehner whipped votes with the President in December’s lame duck session, so eager was he to fund nearly the entire government through September. ‘Don’t worry,’ we were told. The House would not fund the Obama executive amnesty. “And how many days ago did the Speaker reiterate his hard line and flex his new-found muscle on Fox News Sunday? Now, yet again, he again uses ...

Statement of Jenny Beth Martin on Lois Lerner’s bonuses

Nothing the IRS does surprises me. The news that Lois Lerner collected $129,000 in bonuses during the three years she was wrecking people’s lives, however, is particularly galling.  Millions of hardworking Americans are hurting and struggling to make ends meet. Meanwhile, it’s buckets of cash for the woman who persecuted her president’s perceived enemies. This administration penalizes achievement and success, and rewards those who further its big-government agenda. Sad. 

Statement of Jenny Beth Martin on Keystone veto

It’s beyond disappointing that President Obama has vetoed Keystone XL. Instead of saying “yes” to thousands of high-paying American jobs and energy independence, he has bowed to the forces of environmental extremism and the far Left of his own party. And a week after our embassy was abandoned in Yemen, he has chosen to keep Americans dependent on foreign oil for the foreseeable future.

Uniting Tea Party Activists in the Golden State

Photo Credit: Greg Snyder Tea Party Patriots was pleased to co-sponsor the Unite Inland Empire coalition conference at the Fox Performing Arts Center in Riverside. California. The slogan of the day-long event event was “Bringing the conservative wave to California!” Possible Presidential candidates, such as former Texas Governor Rick Perry Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, and former Senate candidate Carly Fiorina, along with Tea Party Patriot’s Gregg Cummings, addressed approximately 1,000 pro-liberty activists in a state which is on the verge of bankruptcy, thanks to left-wing politicians.   From the LA Times: “After a ...

Statement of Jenny Beth Martin on District Court Immigration Ruling

We commend Judge Hanen for his ruling, which restores the rule of law to America’s immigration system, and we thank the 26 attorneys general for bringing the case. The ruling also points out the lawless, overreaching nature of President Obama’s actions. We’re hopeful this will be a wakeup call to Senate Democrats, and that they will allow a vote on funding for critical DHS funding as soon as they return from the recess.

Statement of Jenny Beth Martin on Keystone passage

We commend the House of Representatives for its passage of S. 1, the Keystone XL pipeline bill. This legislation would put Americans to work with high paying, private sector jobs.   Most important, as we note that our embassy in Yemen has been abandoned, it would reduce our dependence on foreign oil from the Middle East. We urge President Obama to put the needs of Americans first, and sign this legislation for the security of the Republic. And we’d remind him that it enjoys the support of Democrats and Republicans.
