Tea Party Patriots Action Slams DHS for Funding Anti-Terrorism Program Linking Tea Party to Nazis
Atlanta, GA – Today, FoxNews.com reported that Department of Homeland Security (DHS) doled out taxpayer money through an anti-terrorism grant initiative to a University of Dayton program that explicitly lumped the Tea Party and other conservative groups into the same category as Nazis (link to story). Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: "The Biden administration’s weaponization of government continues. Tea Party Patriots Action is a grassroots conservative organization with about three million members and supporters. We peacefully mobilize our members to advocate conservative values. To have DHS funds be in an anti-terrorism program that links us to Nazis and puts us on a ‘pyramid of far-right radicalization’ is offensive and disgraceful. “TPPA has already suffered from government abuse of power. During the Obama era, Tea Party Patriots was deliberately targeted and persecuted by the IRS in one of the biggest government scandals of the modern era. “Prior to today’s revelations, we had called for Secretary Mayorkas to be impeached because of his willful refusal to enforce our immigration laws, causing the historic crisis on our southern border. Today, we are once again demanding that Secretary Mayorkas be impeached and for DHS to return to its original mission of protecting our country, instead of trying to intimidate conservative Americans.” TPPA has a petition up for Mayorkas’ impeachment.
Tea Party Patriots Action Reacts to Durham Report, Thanks Jordan for Launching Congressional Hearings
Atlanta, GA – On Monday, Special Counsel John Durham released his long-awaited report slamming the FBI’s handling of the Trump-Russia probe. Durham concluded that the FBI never should have launched a full investigation into Trump’s campaign, while also concluding that the FBI engaged in “disparate treatment” between the Trump and Clinton campaigns. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: "The report is finally in, and it’s worth the wait – after seven years of lies and smears by the highest levels of the Democrat party and corrupt leaders of our nation’s law enforcement and intelligence agencies, we have a conclusive analysis showing there never was any ‘there’ there, and the FBI’s leadership never should have acted the way it did. “This week’s report by Special Counsel John Durham shows that not only was the idea of presidential candidate Donald Trump colluding with Russia a complete fabrication, but it was created and spread by his political opponents at the Clinton campaign. After Trump took office, government leaders then used this hoax to try to subvert Trump’s presidency. “Conservatives knew it was a hoax from Day One and will properly feel gratified by the findings. Sadly, it’s doubtful liberals will go through even a single page of Durham’s 306-page report to learn the truth. “Congress must investigate the new information contained in Durham’s report. Hearings must be held to uncover the full extent of the corruption. All parties involved, no matter how high-reaching, must be held accountable. “We thank House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan — who also serves as chairman of the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government — for announcing his intent to hold hearings on this matter. We are confident Chairman Jordan will conduct such hearings with...
Tea Party Patriots Action Urges House to Pass H.R. 2, the “Secure the Border Act”
Atlanta, GA – Today, the House is expected to vote on the “Secure the Border Act,” House Republicans’ border security, asylum and immigration reform package. In response, TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “The ‘Secure the Border act’ is the strongest comprehensive border security and asylum and immigration reform bill we’ve seen in a long, long time. We support it, and we strongly urge every House Member to vote for it. This legislation addresses the ‘Biden Border Crisis’ and his administration’s abject failure to enforce our immigration laws and ensure the security of our southern border. This legislation will build the border wall, make E-Verify mandatory, and continue the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy, among other things. With Title 42 expiring today, and a new surge of migrants expected to cross the border, this legislation is more timely than ever. “Once the House has taken action, the onus will be on the Senate to pass its own bill so we can keep the momentum going.”
Tea Party Patriots Action Slams Biden Crime Family for Apparent Influence Peddling Scheme
Atlanta, GA – Today, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer held a press briefing revealing the Biden family and its business associates created more than 20 companies and received more than $10 million from foreign nationals while Joe Biden served as vice president, apparently in exchange for influence over policy decisions. In response, TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement:"The Oversight Committee's revelations expose an unconscionable level of political corruption and collusion between the Biden family and nationals of foreign countries with close connections to senior foreign government officials. Not only was the Biden family engaging in politically dubious business dealings, but Committee Chairman Comer believes some of these payments could indicate attempts by the Biden family to peddle influence to foreign nationals. Some of these foreign entities include Russia, China, Ukraine, and Romania. These acts were appalling ventures of self-enrichment that may have put the security of the United States at risk."The actions of then-VP Biden, and continued cover-up by now President Biden, is a debasement of the office of the president. All those involved must be held accountable for the disgrace they have brought to American people and the United States of America."
Tea Party Patriots Action Applauds 43 Senate Republicans for Demanding Spending Cuts and Budget Reforms in Exchange for an Increase in the Debt Ceiling
Atlanta, GA – Forty-three Republican Senators have signed Sen. Mike Lee’s letter demanding spending cuts and structural budget reform as a starting point for negotiations on the debt ceiling. In response, TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “Washington spends too much and steals too much from future generations, and it must stop. We thank Senator Lee, Leader McConnell, and all the senators who signed this letter. This letter will give Speaker McCarthy maximum leverage when he meets with President Biden on Tuesday. “With 43 senators committed to spending cuts and budget reforms, Republicans can filibuster any plan that fails the grade, thereby ensuring that any debt ceiling deal is acceptable to both parties. “The debt ceiling plan House Republicans passed last month takes a responsible path to get spending and inflation under control. Biden should work constructively with congressional Republicans to adopt a much-needed course correction and start putting our fiscal house in order.”
Tea Party Patriots Action Blasts Senate Democrats for Debt Ceiling Hearing
Atlanta, GA – Today, Senate Democrats continue their attacks on House Republicans’ plans to restore fiscal discipline to federal government spending, with a Senate Budget Committee hearing. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer claims the purpose of the hearing is to “expose the true impact” of House Republicans’ proposal to lift the debt ceiling. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: "Today's Senate hearing has nothing to do with negotiating the debt ceiling. It’s clear the intended outcome is to beat down Republicans pushing for fiscal responsibility and force the GOP to raise the debt ceiling without any conditions. How do we know? In the recent words of White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, the 'only practical path to avoid default' is to suspend the debt limit 'without condition.'"Inflation is wreaking havoc on everyday Americans, no matter what gaslighting Biden or those in his administration may try to claim. The Federal Reserve’s decision to raise rates again is proof of that fact. Instead of working to bring inflation under control by cutting their reckless deficit spending, Senate Democrats want instead to eviscerate any Republican attempt to rein in the Biden administration's spending sprees. Debt and spending are linked, as any American who has pulled himself or herself out of debt can tell you. You don't reward financial irresponsibility by empowering more financial irresponsibility. House Republicans understand this, and so does the American public. Why don’t Democrats?”
Tea Party Patriots Action Slams Senate Hearing Attacking Justice Thomas
Atlanta, GA – Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing titled, “Supreme Court Ethics Reform.” The hearing is in response to allegations that Justice Clarence Thomas failed to properly disclose gifts such as plane travel. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: "Let's get one thing straight, the attacks being leveled by liberal politicians and the media against Justice Thomas have nothing to do with any trips he took that were paid for by others, or any alleged inaccuracies with disclosing those trips. "Justice Thomas is under attack for the simple reason that he is a black conservative justice who refuses to cower to the left. Justice Thomas has stood for the Constitution since he was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1991. For three decades, he has supported constitutional principles, ensuring that the original intent of our country's Founders is upheld despite the ever-growing push by liberals to do the opposite. "Last week, TPPA launched an Align Act campaign in support of Justice Thomas. As part of the campaign, TPPA is urging its three million members and supporters to contact their Members of Congress and urge them to support Thomas."
Tea Party Patriots Action Reacts to
Subcommittee Hearing With Randi Weingarten
Atlanta, GA – Today, the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic is holding a hearing titled, “The Consequences of School Closures, Part 2: The President of the American Federation of Teachers, Ms. Randi Weingarten.” In response, TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “This is an accountability moment for Ms. Weingarten. At every step along the way of the Covid crisis, she ignored the science to keep kids out of classrooms. Even as every other industrialized country was returning to in-person learning, American children were suffering because of Randi Weingarten’s political agenda. “That prolonged time out of the classroom has had profoundly negative effects for children. Thanks to the school closures that Weingarten orchestrated, U.S. children suffered the sharpest decline in reading scores in more than thirty years. Furthermore, for the first time since we began tracking nationwide math scores more than fifty years ago, American children fell behind in math. Families today are still grappling with the effects of this wrong-headed policy Weingarten initiated. “When these closing were taking place, Tea Party Patriots Action mobilized parents at school board meetings to demand that schools reopen. Ms. Weingarten, Dr. Fauci, and others stood on the other side and they were wrong – disastrously wrong, and our children will be dealing with the effects of this pure folly for decades. The consequences of this ‘lost year’ for children are now undeniable, in terms of the harm it’s done to our children’s learning and socialization. This was completely avoidable and can never happen again. Ms. Weingarten should apologize at today’s hearing.”
Tea Party Patriots Action Reacts to McCarthy Debt Ceiling Proposal
Atlanta, GA – This week, the House is expected to vote on Speaker McCarthy’s debt ceiling proposal, the “Limit, Save, Grow Act.” This proposal ties a $1.5 trillion debt ceiling increase to long-term spending cuts. In response, TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: "The tea party movement began as a protest to out-of-control government spending, and Tea Party Patriots Action has always called for fiscal responsibility. Today, with inflation out of control because of the Democrats’ record spending, our country needs significant spending cuts now more than ever.“Giving a blank check to a debtor who ran up his or her credit limit would be irresponsible and foolhardy, which is exactly what President Biden and his Democratic cohorts in Congress want. “Speaker McCarthy and House Republicans are looking at what is best for the American people and economy and have presented the Limit, Save, Grow Act as a compromise for the debt ceiling increase. Under this proposal, instead of a blank check debt ceiling increase, the debt ceiling will be raised for a year, with provisions attached to help improve the economy, including clawing back unspent COVID funds, defunding the hiring of 87,000 IRS agents, who, if hired, would be empowered to audit the American people, repealing the Green New Deal, and capping spending levels for 10 years.“The Limit, Save, Grow Act is a plan to get America back on the right path and will benefit the American economy as well as the American people.”
