Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Congratulates Trump on Smashing South Carolina Victory, Urges Haley to Withdraw
Atlanta, GA – Tonight, former President Trump won a smashing victory in South Carolina’s GOP primary. In response, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “With his smashing victory in South Carolina, no one should have any remaining doubt: President Trump will be the Republican nominee, and rightfully so. The race is over, and the time has come for Nikki Haley to withdraw from the race. She’s lost all four nomination contest held so far, including her home state tonight – all by huge margins. If she persists in the race, the only winner will be Joe Biden and the Never-Trumpers who are funding her campaign, despite her dismal results. We need a united party. Grassroots conservatives have made their choice: They want Trump. The grassroots are fueling Trump’s state-by-state landslides and they will continue to do so. We urge Haley to bow out immediately and endorse Trump so we can focus exclusively on defeating Joe Biden.” This week, Townhall ran Ms. Martin’s op-ed, Message to Nikki Haley: Time to Go.

TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: "We are just months away from one of the most important elections in our lifetime, and the security of those elections is under siege from an invasion of foreigners crossing our borders illegally. Some of them could ultimately vote in our elections with few barriers stopping them. There are so many who have crossed into our country illegally — at least seven million, by the Biden Administration’s own count, and probably more — that if just one percent of them illegally registered to vote and then voted, that would be more votes than Joe Biden needed to take the 2020 election. “Our poll shows that election integrity is a bipartisan issue, with overwhelming majorities of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents wanting to protect our elections from foreign interference. Our poll makes it absolutely clear — by a wide margin, the vast majority...
Tea Party Patriots Action Applauds House for Impeaching Mayorkas, Urges Senate to Give Him Legitimate Trial
For Immediate Release: February 13, 2024 Contact Information: Lilly Rogers [email protected] Atlanta, GA – Today, the House approved two articles of impeachment against DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his failure to secure our southern border and his lies to Congress about his failure to do so. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “We thank the Members who voted for Secretary Mayorkas’ impeachment. This is an important step in holding the Biden Administration accountable for its purposeful failure to secure our southern border, which, to date, has allowed at least seven million illegal aliens to enter our country. Now comes an equally important task: Senate Democrats must give Mayorkas a legitimate trial, as the Constitution demands. Any attempt by Senate Democrats to delay the trial or dismiss the charges before any trial begins would be a fundamental failure to live up to the Senate’s responsibilities. “ For more information or any press inquiries, please contact Lilly Rogers at [email protected].
Atlanta, GA –Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement in response to Special Counsel Hur’s report regarding President Biden’s “willful” retention and disclosure of classified material. “The Special Counsel has left the American body politic with no choice: We must take the Special Counsel at his word and acknowledge that the president’s mental acuity has deteriorated so much that he can no longer perform the duties of president. If he cannot stand trial because a prosecutor believes he would have difficulty convincing a jury that Biden has the mental capacity to have intent to commit a crime, then President Biden does not have the mental capacity necessary to meet the demands of what everyone knows is a difficult job. “The office of President requires a level of mental performance that President Biden has consistently shown he does not possess. And — incredibly — he insists on running for re-election for another four years. This disastrous chapter in American history must come to an end. The 25th Amendment must be invoked.”
Atlanta, GA – Tonight, former President Trump won a smashing victory in Nevada’s GOP caucuses. In response, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund President Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “President Trump is now three-for-three in the nomination states, all by massive margins. Trump’s wins are being fueled by the conservative grassroots — they want him to finish the job he started during his first term. Nikki Haley is delaying the inevitable. She has no path to victory in any state, including her home state of South Carolina, which is next on the calendar. She should withdraw immediately and help conservatives unite for one of the most important missions of our lifetime: Getting the corrupt and ineffectual Joe Biden out of office.”
Atlanta, GA – Today, the House is expected to vote on two articles of impeachment against DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his failure to secure our southern border. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “We urge every Member of Congress to vote for Secretary Mayorkas’ impeachment. The standards for impeachment are high, but Mayorkas has clearly met them: His refusal to enforce our immigration laws has created a humanitarian and national security disaster on our southern border. Since Mayorkas became DHS Secretary, we know at least eight million illegal aliens have entered our country, with the actual number being much higher and impossible to know. “Should the House act, Senate Democrats must give Mayorkas a legitimate trial, as the constitution demands. Any attempt by Senate Democrats to dismiss the charges on an up-or-down vote before any trial begins would be a fundamental failure to live up to the Senate’s constitutional responsibilities. “The Mayorkas scandal is an accountability moment for Members of Congress in both parties, and we expect Congress to deliver. Mayorkas must go.” 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.
Atlanta, GA – On Monday, the Department of Energy (DOE) finalized its long-awaited standards for cooking stoves, backing down from its initial plan that would have banned nearly half of gas stoves in American households. In response to the DOE’s finalized regulations, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: "While the DOE's announcement may seem like a win against the Biden administration's regulatory onslaught, it's not worth celebrating. The regulations DOE finalized and will start enforcing are unnecessary and will hinder our everyday lives. The administration's so-called ‘green agenda’ continues to take precedence over the interest of the American people. These radicals aren't going anywhere and the fight is not over. We will continue working with Congress to roll back these regulations and protect our way of life." Shortly after Commissioner Trumka proposed a gas stove ban in January 2023, TPPA launched a "Call to Action" urging their members and supporters to leave comments opposing new regulations. They helped generate 4,448 comments. This represented almost half the comments left for the commission.
Atlanta, GA – Today, the House Homeland Security Committee will mark up articles of impeachment against DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his failure to secure our southern border. Ahead of the committee meeting, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “The border crisis is undeniable. Not only are we seeing new record-breaking numbers of illegal alien encounters every month, but also a disturbing increase in individuals on the terrorist watch list apprehended at our southern border. Who knows how many of those individuals have gotten through without our knowledge? “Worse, it is clear the crisis is the result of deliberate policy choices. “The committee is right to pursue impeachment, as Secretary Mayorkas has blatantly refused to enforce our laws and betrayed the public's trust. To restore accountability and protect our nation, Mayorkas must be impeached.” This month, the Daily Caller published Ms. Martin’s op-ed, Alejandro Mayorkas Is Finally Getting a Taste Of Accountability.

Atlanta, GA – On Wednesday, Texas Governor Abbott declared that the federal government had failed to uphold its compact with Texas by allowing an invasion of millions of illegal aliens. Texas is currently tied up in litigation with the Biden Administration regarding the erection of barbed wire fencing Texas has placed on state property. Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “Governor Abbott is absolutely correct that the Biden Administration is deliberately failing in its most basic constitutional duty: to protect us from foreign invasion. It is shameful that the Administration has allowed millions of illegal aliens to enter our country, and it is even worse that the Biden Administration is suing Texas to stop it from erecting barbed wire fencing on state property in order to help keep out illegal aliens. Further, it is wrong for Democrats in Congress to urge Biden to federalize the Texas National Guard if Abbott carries out his plan to continue erecting barbed wire. The Biden Administration is playing a dangerous game, and we stand with Abbott and other patriots who are protecting our country against the disastrous Biden Border Crisis.”
