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 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]

Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Congratulates Trump on Super Tuesday Victories, Urges Haley to Withdraw 

Atlanta, GA – Tonight, former President Donald Trump won a smashing victory in Texas’ GOP primary as part of a wider assemblage of victories on Super Tuesday. In response, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund President Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement:   “President Trump continues to dominate the Republican primaries, fueled by grassroots conservatives. Sixteen states voted today, and while the results haven’t been finalized in every state, it is clear that Trump will emerge with an overwhelming share of the delegates at stake. The race is all but over, and it’s time for Nikki Haley to withdraw and endorse Trump. We must not delay any longer the process of uniting the conservative movement so we can be fully prepared and mobilized for the general campaign. The stakes are too high to delay the inevitable: We must be laser-focused on defeating Joe Biden. We congratulate President Trump on tonight’s victories, and we will continue working hard for him as he makes his way back to the White House.”   For more information or any press inquiries, please contact TJ Winer at [email protected]

Tea Party Patriots Action Applauds SCOTUS Ruling Keeping Trump on Ballot 

Atlanta, GA – Today, the U.S. Supreme Court overruled the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to kick former President Donald Trump off the Colorado ballot because of the Fourteenth Amendment. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “We are thankful for the Supreme Court’s ruling today. However, this case should never have reached the nation’s highest court. It was irresponsible and disgraceful for liberal judges to use phony Fourteenth Amendment concerns to kick the presumptive Republican nominee for President off the ballot. That was true election interference, one of many examples of the Democrats using ‘lawfare’ against Trump with multiple trials designed to break him financially and break the spirit of his supporters. It will not succeed. Today, the Supreme Court reaffirmed every American’s fundamental right to vote for the candidate of their choice, despite the malpractice of liberal judges.”

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.

Tea Party Patriots Action Poll Conducted by McLaughlin & Associates Shows Massive Majority Support for Stronger Election Integrity

87% of Americans Agree that "Proof of U.S. Citizenship Should be Required to Register to Vote in American elections." Atlanta, GA – Today, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) released the data from a poll it conducted through McLaughlin and Associates showing massive majority support for stronger election integrity. The poll, which surveyed 1,000 general election voters and was conducted January 25-31, found: 87% agree that "proof of United States citizenship should be required to register to vote in American elections." 86% agree that “only United States citizens should be allowed to vote in elections in America” 86% agree that “only United States citizens should be allowed to vote in elections for the American President, Senators, and Representatives” 83% agree that “proof of United States citizenship should be required to vote in American elections” 79% agree that “foreigners should be prohibited from interfering, including voting, in U.S. elections” Crosstabs available upon request. 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].

Tea Party Patriots Action Calls on Biden to Be Removed Via 25th Amendment

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.”
