Tea Party Patriots Action Press Releases
Atlanta, GA – Today, the House voted to elect Mike Johnson as its Speaker. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “Tea Party Patriots Action congratulates Mike Johnson on his election to Speaker, and congratulates House Republicans for finally getting it right. Speaker Johnson faces enormous challenges in working to fight the Biden Administration and the Democrat-controlled Senate to right our nation’s course, to restore fiscal discipline, and to defend our interests at home and abroad. We are confident he is ready to fight to secure our border, to get Washington’s reckless spending under control, to end the weaponization of government against its citizens, and to end the woke policies guiding our military. We at TPPA look forward to continue working with Speaker Johnson on behalf of our shared values and the tens of millions of Americans who live by them.”
Atlanta, GA – Today, the House Republican Conference voted to no longer back Rep. Jim Jordan for Speaker. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: "The GOP Conference just stabbed the majority of GOP voters in the back. The voters want Jim Jordan for Speaker. Weak-spined GOP Congressmen vote one way on the floor for voters to see and another on a secret ballot behind closed doors with no accountability or transparency. Nevertheless, We the People will never stop standing for America, liberty, and our Constitution. We are not going away."
Atlanta, GA – On Thursday night, President Biden addressed the nation from the Oval Office. The main topics were the conflict between Israel and Hamas and the war in Ukraine. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: "While many people today are talking about what President Biden said last night regarding the threats facing America and its interests abroad, few are talking about what he did NOT say — he did NOT say he was reversing his disastrous policy toward Iran. "That weak policy has emboldened Iran’s radical regime and refilled its coffers. That coddling policy has allowed Iran to advance its nuclear program. That feeble policy has permitted Iran to enhance its efforts to sponsor terrorism against America and its allies. "That policy must go. Until President Biden acknowledges his Iran policy is wrong and reverses it, America will continue to be in danger."
Atlanta, GA – Today, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will hold a hearing on President Biden’s nomination of former Treasury Secretary Jack Lew to be the U.S. Ambassador to Israel. In opposition to Lew’s nomination, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “Jack Lew should not serve as U.S. Ambassador to Israel. Not only was Lew one of the architects of the disastrous 2015 Iranian nuclear deal that President Biden is trying to revive, but Lew is an 'Iran sympathizer,' as Sen. Tom Cotton correctly points out. Lew lied to Congress about helping Iran dodge American sanctions, and he defended the Obama Administration’s refusal to veto blatant antisemitic resolutions proposed by the U.N. Security Council. At a time when Iran is funding and training terrorist groups to eradicate Israel and murder Americans — as we just witnessed in the horrifying Hamas attacks against Israel — we need to signal to the world our unrelenting backing for Israel and provide the aid needed as it rightfully fights back. Putting an Iran sympathizer in the job of Ambassador to Israel would send the wrong message at the wrong time. Jack Lew cannot serve as our Ambassador to Israel. His nomination must be defeated.”
Atlanta, GA – Today, Tea Party Patriots Act (TPPA) endorsed Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan for Speaker. TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “Jim Jordan has been a consistent conservative leader since he came to the House in 2007. He has always fought for limited government, a strong national defense, and individual liberty, and he shares Tea Party Patriots Action’s values in support of personal freedom, economic freedom, and a debt-free future. “He has built a record of conservative leadership second to none. His work as a committee chairman, leading to passage in the House of the strongest border security legislation ever, shows that he can build coalitions. But he has not been a rubber stamp for the GOP leadership; rather, he has been willing to stand up to his party’s leaders when he believed they were deviating from conservative principles – so much so that he became one of the founders and leaders of the House Freedom Caucus – and his determination to speak his mind is legendary. He recognized that there were significant irregularities in the 2020 election, and he had the courage to stand up to the Swamp and speak his mind about it. “Perhaps most importantly, he does what he said he would do, and he keeps the promises he makes. “There has been much discussion over the last few days about the possibility of raising the threshold to initiate a motion to vacate against the Speaker. We believe it should remain right where it is, at one. “The next Speaker of the House will face enormous challenges in working with the Biden Administration and the Senate to right our nation’s course, to return to fiscal discipline, and to defend our interests at home and abroad. He will need to be ready to fight...
Tea Party Patriots Action Applauds Speaker McCarthy’s Opening of a Formal Impeachment Inquiry into President Joe Biden
Atlanta, GA – Today, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy ordered a formal impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden. Since this inquiry was first reputed, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) has mobilized over 2,000 activists to visit their congressional offices and deliver letters to their Member of Congress requesting they demand an impeachment inquiry into President Biden. In response to today’s formal opening of the impeachment inquiry, TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “The Biden administration has time and again stonewalled the House’s legitimate investigation requests into the Biden family’s corrupt overseas dealings. The opening of an impeachment inquiry, which will strengthen the House’s hand in obtaining documents and witness appearances, is not only the answer to this stonewalling but the duty of the House. The testimonies and documents provide concrete evidence that President Biden lied to the American people about his own knowledge of his family's foreign dealings and even participated in these corrupt practices during his time as Vice President. Speaker McCarthy is correct to open this impeachment inquiry to complete the House’s investigation thoroughly. The American people deserve to know the truth.”
Tea Party Patriots Action Continues Pushing for Special Session of Georgia Legislature so Rogue D.A.’s Attack on Free Speech Can Be Defunded
Atlanta, GA – Today, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin spoke at a press conference organized by the Georgia Freedom Caucus urging a special session of the legislature to defund Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’s attacks on free speech in response to her indictment of former President Trump and 18 others. Ms. Martin issued the following statement: “When the district attorney indicted 19 people for trying to make sure our election was free and fair, she was wrong. Every day that goes by that innocent people have to prepare to defend themselves in a trial, those wrongs continue. District Attorney Fani Willis has abused the power of her office for her own partisan political purposes, and that is wrong. Her wrongful prosecution must be defunded. The Constitution of Georgia gives the legislature the power of the purse. Working together, the Governor and the legislature must right this wrong through a special session of the legislature. We are not going to allow the district attorney’s abuse of her office to chill our determination to exercise our God-given rights."
Atlanta, GA – Today, President Biden is delivering remarks on the one-year anniversary of the Inflation Reduction Act, the $750 billion health care, tax and climate bill he signed into law last year. In response, Tea Party Patriots Act (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “Only in Washington would spending $750 billion that we don’t have be considered an ‘Inflation Reduction Act.’ It’s Orwellian and the American people are not fooled by it. One year after signing his signature bill, inflation continues to be an albatross around the necks of the American people. We’re continuing to experience the worst inflation since the Jimmy Carter era. Inflation rose in July and it will likely continue to rise in August as gas prices eat a bigger hole in our wallets. Biden and his Democrat allies in Congress who passed this bill on a party-line vote should be embarrassed to publicly celebrate this economic disaster.”
Atlanta, GA – In yet another sweeping overreach, former President Trump and 18 other individuals have been indicted by the Fulton County District Attorney. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “President Trump's legal team spent weeks collecting affidavits — sworn testimony — from eyewitnesses who claimed to have personally seen election irregularities during the course of the 2020 election in Georgia. I am appalled and outraged by yesterday’s indictment, which is now the fourth prosecution of Trump by Democrats. “There was nothing illegal in President Trump’s activities in Georgia. During the recount, the President rightfully pointed out irregularities in Georgia voting – irregularities confirmed directly from eyewitnesses, as well. When the president called the Georgia Secretary of State, he was asking Secretary Raffensperger to aggressively locate and weed out irregularities; he did not ask the Secretary to do anything illegal, either directly or indirectly. “When it comes to the issue of Georgia’s electors, this is another attempt by Democrats to criminalize the political process and to criminalize First Amendment protected speech. The Trump campaign had a right to organize his electors, which could be either accepted or rejected by the U.S. Congress, as specified in the Constitution. “This is the worst abuse of power in Georgia in my lifetime. Our country is being tested in ways we have not seen in many generations, but we must have courage and we must not lose hope.”
Atlanta, GA – Former President Donald Trump has been indicted (yet again) by the Justice Department (yet again), this time for his actions in the immediate aftermath of the 2020 election. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “This is a disgrace. Every American should be appalled by this blatant abuse of power by President Biden’s Justice Department. President Biden is trying to break and imprison his chief opponent in the 2024 election – that is the real election interference, not anything President Trump did in the 2020 cycle. This is the now the third prosecution of Trump by Democrats, with a fourth prosecution expected by Fulton County’s DA any day now. Meanwhile, the DOJ wants to give Hunter Biden a sweetheart deal and is covering up for ‘The Big Guy’s’ possible bribery and classified documents negligence. Conservatives experience persecution, while Democrats escape prosecution. “President Trump did not conspire with anyone to break the law. “President Trump did not orchestrate a riot. In fact, he explicitly called on his supporters to be peaceful. When the protest got out of hand, he publicly demanded that his supporters leave the Capitol. BLM and Antifa, on the other hand, orchestrated many deadly riots in the summer of 2020. Biden’s running mate at the time, Kamala Harris, urged people to contribute money to bail out the rioters. “If you’re a political candidate, and the results of the election are disputed, you have a right to pursue your legal options as far as the law allows. Trump did that; he did nothing illegal or immoral. The fact that he is being prosecuted is outrageous. “No one considered prosecuting Al Gore when he disputed the 2000 election, mobilizing his army of lawyers to deny military ballots and hold recounts only in Florida counties that he won in a landslide but not...
