Tea Party Patriots Action Urges House to Hold Garland in Contempt of Congress

Atlanta, GA – As soon as today, the House will vote on holding Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress for his refusal to produce subpoenaed audio recordings of President Biden’s interviews with special counsel Robert Hur over Biden's mishandling of classified information. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “Tea Party Patriots Action urges every House Member to vote in favor of holding Attorney General Garland in contempt of Congress. There is no legal validity to President Biden’s assertion of privilege over the audio recordings of conversations in which the transcripts have already been released. For months, Garland has refused to turn over the recordings, even though the House committees are well within their legal rights to demand and receive them. This is just the latest example of Garland’s abuse of power, covering up for the ‘Big Guy.’ The appropriate recourse is to hold Garland in contempt of Congress.” This week, Townhall published Ms. Martin’s op-ed, The House Must Vote “Yes” on Holding Garland in Contempt of Congress. To read it, click here.

Tea Party Patriots Action Slams Biden for Executive Order on Border Crisis

Atlanta, GA – Today, the Biden administration issued a new executive order allowing the president to close the border in between ports of entry when there is an average of 2,500 crossings a day over a seven day period. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “This is a joke. In the early days of his presidency, Joe Biden reversed his predecessor’s immigration policies — as he had promised to do while campaigning for the presidency in 2020 — and the result was predictable: Over seven million illegal aliens have settled in our country since Biden took office. Now, with voters listing immigration as the most important issue facing the country, according to most polls, Biden is pretending to do something about it in order to garner some positive headlines. It won’t work.  “Joe Biden has had the power to stop the border invasion all along; all he has to do is enforce existing law. He won’t do it. And today’s action , even if fully enforced (which it won’t be, if history is any guide), would still allow more than 1.7 million illegal immigrants to enter our country every year with the approval of the Biden administration — on top of the one million immigrants who come here legally. “Despite Joe Biden’s actions today, the invasion continues, putting the physical safety of our people at risk, leaving us wide open to the possibility of a new terrorist attack, and potentially jeopardizing the integrity of our elections.”

Tea Party Patriots Action Slams Guilty Verdict in Trump Case

Atlanta, GA – Today, former President Trump was found guilty by a New York City jury for unlawful bookkeeping. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “This is a disgraceful, inexcusable verdict. This case should never have been brought to trial in the first place. The D.A. never explained the underlying crime, and his political motivations were clear — he was elected after having promised to ‘get Trump’ during his election campaign. Judge Merchan was equally abysmally biased, issuing absurd jury instructions that make the verdict vulnerable to appeal. The jurors themselves clearly were either biased, given the overwhelming liberal make-up of Manhattan, or did not understand the law. What we’re left with is an unprecedented day in American history: A presumptive presidential nominee convicted for a made-up crime to weaken him in an election campaign. President Biden and the Democrats are smiling today. But Trump will prevail come November, and the tables will turn. The Democrats should be careful what they wish for.”

He couldn’t be with us today. “Three months ago, we commissioned a national poll, conducted by John Mclaughlin, President Trump’s pollster. His findings were not surprising to those of us who have been working on election integrity at the grassroots level for the last several years. Overwhelming majorities of the American people believe only U.S. citizens should vote, and overwhelming majorities of the American people believe proof of citizenship should be required to register to vote. “That is exactly what the SAVE Act does – it amends the Motor Voter law to require that States obtain documentary proof of citizenship before they can register someone to vote. “It’s already illegal for noncitizens to vote. but just because something is illegal doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. If you’re not a citizen, it’s...

Tea Party Patriots Action Urges Senate to Give Mayorkas Legitimate Trial

“Outrageous, Unprecedented Cover-Up” is About to Take Place Atlanta, GA – Today, the Senate will likely vote to dismiss the impeachment charges against DHS Secretary Mayorkas without holding a trial. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “What the Senate Democrats will do today is an outrageous, unprecedented abdication of their constitutional responsibility. Only 21 times in history has the House passed articles of impeachment. The House’s decision to impeach Secretary Mayorkas was not done flippantly, it was done after an extensive investigation of the root causes of the border crisis and Mayorkas’ role in allowing that crisis to take place and escalate. “Yet instead of putting Mayorkas on trial, as the Constitution mandates, Senate Democrats will engage in a coverup: They do not want the public to see the evidence against Mayorkas and the gravity of the process that impeachment normally demands; they want to paint the House’s impeachment of Mayorkas as a partisan stunt not worthy of the Senate’s time. Nothing could be further from the truth. The border crisis is the number one issue facing the country, according to most public opinion polls, and for good reason — it is unprecedented in its depth and breadth. Senate Democrats are making an inexcusable choice. No Senate Republican should join them.”  This month, the Daily Caller published Ms. Martin’s op-ed, Senate Must Let House Make Its Case In Impeachment Trial Of Mayorkas. To read it, click here.

Tea Party Patriots Action Applauds Trump & Johnson for Pushing Citizen Only Voting Bill

Atlanta, GA – Today, former President Trump and Speaker Johnson will hold a press conference endorsing citizen only voting legislation – specifically, Rep. Chip Roy’s bill, the “Safeguard American Voter Eligibility Act” (SAVE Act). This bill strengthens current law by requiring proof of citizenship to register to vote in Federal elections. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: "Tea Party Patriots Action strongly supports the SAVE Act. We thank Congressman Roy for introducing it, and we are thrilled former President Trump and Speaker Johnson are rallying around it. “Americans understand the importance of ensuring that only citizens vote in elections for the American President, Senators, and Representatives. “In January of this year, we commissioned John McLaughlin’s company to conduct an election integrity poll. We learned that 87% of Americans agree that ‘proof of U.S. citizenship should be required to register to vote in American elections,’ and that 79% agree that ‘foreigners should be prohibited from interfering, including voting, in U.S. elections.’ Even though President Biden is deliberately flooding our country with illegal aliens, overwhelming majorities of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents want to protect our elections from foreign interference. That is what makes the SAVE Act so important.  “We look forward to working with President Trump and Speaker Johnson to promote the SAVE Act and the larger cause of strengthening election integrity.” Strengthening election integrity is at the heart of TPPA’s mission. Ahead of the 2022 midterms, TPPA recruited and trained over 20,000 poll watchers and poll workers. TPPA is redoubling those efforts for the 2024 election, and its goal is to exceed what it did in 2022.

​​Tea Party Patriots Action Urges Senate to Give Mayorkas Legitimate Trial

Atlanta, GA – Today, Speaker Johnson and House impeachment managers sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Schumer informing him they will send articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas to the Senate on April 10. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement:  “DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has been impeached by the House of Representatives for his utter failure to enforce the law on the southern border and then lying about it to Congress. The Senate should now do its job and hold an impeachment trial, with every senator required to hear the full case against Mayorkas, as presented by the House impeachment managers. “The Democrats who control the Senate owe it to the American public not to dismiss this case before any evidence is presented, and not to shuffle the case off to some ‘special committee’ where all evidence will be presented in private. “Secretary Mayorkas’ failure to enforce the law on the southern border has led to an illegal immigration crisis of historic proportions. Under his watch — and by his order — millions of illegal aliens have been allowed to enter the country. That is wrong, and he should be convicted by the Senate and removed from office.” In January, the Daily Caller published Ms. Martin’s op-ed, Alejandro Mayorkas Is Finally Getting a Taste Of Accountability. To read it, click here.

Tea Party Patriots Action Slams Ruling Keeping Fulton County DA on Trump Case

Atlanta, GA – Today, Judge Scott McAfee ruled that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and her office can continue prosecuting former President Donald Trump and his co-defendants only if special prosecutor Nathan Wade steps down. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “Judge McAfee’s ruling is appalling. It is clear to any fair-minded person that Fani Willis disqualified herself by hiring her lover to lead the Trump prosecution, abusing government funds, and then engaging in perjury and obstruction of justice during her hearing. And then there’s the fact that Willis’ prosecution of Trump and his co-defendants has no basis in law and is naked election interference. This week, Gov. Kemp signed legislation that lets a state commission begin operating with powers to discipline and remove prosecutors. Because the state legislature in Georgia has abdicated its constitutional power to impeach, that commission must act to remove Willis immediately. Every moment this sham prosecution is allowed to continue is a total miscarriage of justice."

Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund: “The State of the Union is a Disaster and Biden Bears the Blame”

Atlanta, GA – Tonight, President Biden will deliver his annual State of the Union address. In anticipation of the speech, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund (TPPCF) Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “The State of the Union is a disaster and the reason is simple: the left-wing policies of President Biden and the Democrats. On issue after issue, whether it’s inflation, immigration, crime, foreign wars, weaponization of government, cultural decay, and so much more, Biden and the Democrats have directly enacted policies that have caused tremendous suffering across our country. To rebut these basic facts, Biden will offer fake optimism and misinformation tonight. The American people know better. “The American people are demanding a course correction. They will not get it tonight and they will never get it so long as Joe Biden is President. The next few months are tremendously important for our country. Conservatives in Congress must continue to stand strong against Biden's assault on the country. Additionally, conservative activists across the country must do the hard work necessary to secure and win elections in November so that we can have a true course correction next year. Our future depends on it.” For more information or any press inquiries, please contact TJ Winer at [email protected]
