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 ...

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.

Democrats’ Obstructionism

This week, Senate Democrats more than dipped their toes in the obstructionism pool, they jumped completely in! For three days in a row, the Democratic caucus united behind blocking a bill [1] that passed the House of Representatives and would fund the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Their only problem with the bill is that it reverses President Obama’s unconstitutional executive order instituting de facto amnesty. The Department’s funding runs out at the end of this month. Meanwhile, of course, the Obama Administration is laying the groundwork to cast the blame of a potential DHS shutdown squarely at the GOP’s feet. On Monday, in ...

OCTOBER 1, 2017

October 1, 2017 is the first day of the US government’s first fiscal year after our next President is inaugurated. That date would allow the next Congress and the next President the time to enact laws based on our core principles of personal freedom, economic freedom, and a debt free future. We at Tea Party Patriots are thinking about what we would like to see happen on that day -- in an ideal world, where we would have a Congress and a President who are committed to the same values we cherish. We know that what unites the tea party movement is the same as what unites most Americans -- the freedom to work hard and the freedom to keep the fruits of ...

It’s Time for serious action on illegal immigration

An explosive new report at Breitbart News [1] reveals how illegal immigrants in California may be getting a free pass on identity theft, thanks to the state’s new investigative policy at the DMV. The regulation orders DMV workers to overlook identity problems by applicants who want a driver’s license. In other words, should an illegal immigrant submit paperwork with fraudulent information, employees are supposed to look the other way. The policy is shocking in and of itself, given that identity theft is usually treated as a felony. But it’s not so shocking when looked at through the prism of illegal immigration and the left’s push to ignore ...

Actually, Speaker Boehner, we disagree on a lot

Over at The Daily Caller today, Tea Party Patriots’ Jenny Beth Martin has an op-ed responding to House Speaker John Boehner’s interview on 60 Minutes. The Speaker seems to think the Tea Party is all about disagreements “over tactics” and not substantive disagreements over things like Obamacare, immigration, and budgets. But as Martin explains, that’s a warped view of the tea party movement. Martin writes [1]: The Speaker trivializes the differences that led to the biggest intraparty rebellion against a sitting Speaker since the Civil War. His first problem isn’t with outside groups, it’s his own GOP colleagues in the House. When one ...

President Ignores Midterm Election Mandate

Statement by Jenny Beth Martin of Tea Party Patriots Atlanta, Ga. –Following President Obama's 2015 State of the Union address, Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, issued the following statement: "The President obviously watched a different set of mid-term elections than the rest of the country did. He said that every single one of his policies was on the ballot; the American people rejected them – and him – overwhelmingly. "It’s amazing that after such a repudiation of his policies and programs, his first instinct is to pick a fight. Three hundred billion dollars in new taxes? He knows there’s no chance of such a ...

ACT NOW to save online free speech!

Liberal allies of Barack Obama on the Federal Election Commission (FEC) are attempting to regulate political speech on and off the Internet, and to restrict our constitutionally protected freedoms.  We have a short window of time to stop it! Under current FEC guidelines (from a unanimous, 6-0 decision in 2006), political advertising or commentary posted on YouTube is exempt from campaign reporting requirements. Democrat FEC Vice Chair Ann Ravel apparently finds this unacceptable, and speaks unfavorably [1] of “this effort to protect individual bloggers and online commentators.” As if free speech is unworthy of protection! If Ms. Ravel ...

Shadowbosses: Government Unions Control America and Rob Taxpayers Blind – Mallory Factor

Shadowbosses: Government Unions Control America and Rob Taxpayers Blind – Mallory Factor “The Tea Party Patriots’ three core values are free markets, fiscal responsibility and constitutionally limited government. All three values are under assault by Shadow bosses who fight for closed markets, fiscally irresponsible contracts and greater government (and government union) control. In the striking new book SHADOW BOSSES, Mallory Factor lifts the veil on the Shadow bosses’ game. A wake-up call to all Americans – and especially to parents of school-aged children in Shadow boss-controlled schools.” – Jenny Beth Martin, Co-Founder and ...
