Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Lauds Trump for Selecting J.D. Vance for V.P.

Atlanta, GA – This afternoon, former President Donald J. Trump selected Senator J.D. Vance as his Vice-Presidential running mate. In response, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund President Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund is excited by President Trump’s selection of Senator Vance to serve as America’s next Vice President. Grassroots conservatives are already energized by the presidential race, and Vance’s selection will deepen that enthusiasm. Vance, like Trump, is not a career politician; he is someone who has been successful in multiple venues of life.  And like Trump, Vance is someone who throughout his life has been an advocate for the forgotten men and women of this country – the people Washington ignores and looks down upon.  Senator Vance will be an outstanding Vice President, an historic upgrade over the disastrous Kamala Harris.  The Trump-Vance ticket is the winning ticket in 2024.”

Tea Party Patriots Action Applauds Judge’s Dismissal of Trump’s Classified Documents Case

Atlanta, GA – Today, Judge Cannon dismissed the entire federal criminal case against former President Trump over his handling of classified information. Cannon concluded that special counsel Jack Smith’s appointment violated the Appointments Clause of the Constitution. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “Judge Cannon made the right decision, and we applaud her for it. There is no question that Jack Smith’s appointment was illegal, making his indictment against Trump illegal. The only question was whether Judge Cannon would have the courage to dismiss the indictment. She did. This is a big win not just for Trump, but also for the rule of law. The Democrats’ weaponization of government against conservatives must come to an end.”

Tea Party Patriots Action Reacts to Supreme Court Ruling on Presidential Immunity

Atlanta, GA – Today, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its ruling in Trump v. United States, in which the former President argued he is immune from prosecution on charges stemming from actions he took while serving as president. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “This is a win for former President Trump, and a big defeat for the Democrats who have been weaponizing the government against Trump to interfere in this year’s election. “The Supreme Court has weighed in — presidents must have immunity for their core functions and official acts.  “We thank the Supreme Court for recognizing the importance of presidential immunity. The ruling is also a fresh reminder about the importance of the Supreme Court as the American people consider who their next President should be.” For more information or any press inquiries, please contact TJ Winer at [email protected]

Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Reacts to Trump Victory in Debate

Atlanta, GA – Tonight, former President Trump won the first presidential debate against President Biden. In response, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund President Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “Tonight, President Trump delivered a strong and positive contrast to President Biden on the issues that matter most to grassroots conservatives and all Americans – inflation, the border crisis, crime, and corruption. Biden’s left-wing policies have caused tremendous economic suffering, made Americans less safe, and hurt America’s position in the world. Biden’s attacks on Trump fell flat, with Trump successfully contrasting the success of his four years in office with Biden’s miserable four years. Trump won the debate, plain and simple.  “Over the next four months, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund will continue mobilizing activists to get out the vote in support of a second term for President Trump because we know the historic stakes in this election. Every day matters, and we will do everything we can between now and Election Day to ensure the integrity of this election and educate and motivate conservatives for victory.”

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.
