Tea Party Patriots Action Press Releases
TPPA Thanks GOP Senators Who Wrote Letter to McConnell Making That Demand Atlanta, GA – This week, more than a dozen Senators wrote a letter to Senate Republican Leader McConnell opposing a vote on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) unless Senators can vote on an amendment prohibiting the discharge of Armed Services members who refuse to receive the Covid-19 vaccination and ordering the reinstatement and back pay of those members who have already been discharged. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “No American should lose his or her job because of his or her Covid-19 vaccination status, and that’s especially true for our brave men and women in uniform. Over 125,000 service members currently face discharge because of President Biden’s terrible Covid-19 vaccine requirement. The fact that Biden is insisting on this requirement when he has already declared the Covid-19 crisis ‘over’ is absurd — and it’s even more absurd when you add to that the fact that our armed forces are already facing challenges on the recruitment front, with historic shortfalls in recent years. We thank the Senators who are standing up for our heroes in uniform. We urge every Senator to vote to end Biden’s vaccine requirement for the military.”
Atlanta, GA – Finally, after a week of waiting, we have the results to show that Republicans will take control of the U.S. House of Representatives. Also, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced she would be stepping down as Democratic leader. TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: "We're thrilled that Republicans took control of the House, because now there will finally be a check on Joe Biden's power. Republicans are in for a tough two years as the country's many problems have only piled up under the leadership, or lack thereof, from Biden and Democrats. The crisis at the southern border has grown to disastrous proportions while Democrats have stood by doing nothing. There have been well over 2 million illegal border crossings this year alone. That number is potentially on track to reach 3 million by the end of 2022. The state of the economy is just as bad as the state of the border. Biden's colossal amount of government spending has fueled inflation to its highest rate in 40 years, with the willing support of Democrats. Now with Republicans leading in the House, we can begin to work on fixing the many failures of Biden and the Democrats, as well as opening numerous investigations into the closing of schools, actions to shut down political speech opposing the Biden Administration and its policies, the Biden family’s foreign business dealings, and more. “As to Nancy Pelosi's decision to step down as Democrat leader, this couldn't come soon enough. Goodbye, Nancy.”
Atlanta, GA – Today, Speaker David Ralston (R-Blue Ridge, 73rd Speaker of the Georgia House of Representatives) passed away. He was 68 years old. Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “I knew David Ralston for over two decades. In 1998, I volunteered on his statewide campaign for Attorney General. He always treated my family and me with kindness and respect. He had a long and distinguished career in Georgia government, serving nearly two decades as Georgia Speaker. I appreciate his service to the people of Georgia. My prayers are with his family as they grieve and mourn him.”
Tea Party Patriots Action Launches Website toRecruit and Train Poll Watchers & Poll Workers for Midterm Elections
Atlanta, GA – – Today, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) announced the creation of a website to recruit poll watchers and poll workers for the midterm elections. The website is HelpAtThePolls.com. This year, TPPA conducted a multi-state election integrity tour recruiting and training poll watchers and poll workers in key battleground states, including Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Nevada, and Arizona. This week alone, they have recruited over 700 volunteers and they have trained more than 8,000 volunteers over the course of the year. TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “Election integrity is one of the top issues for conservatives, given the controversies over the 2020 presidential vote. One of the most important elements of election integrity is making sure there isn’t a liberal bias among poll watchers and poll workers. In the past, training poll watchers and poll workers was an underserved priority for conservatives. No longer. Tea Party Patriots Action is leading the fight for election integrity. Earlier this year, we organized a multi-state campaign to recruit and train people to be poll workers and poll watchers. Now we are launching a new website — HelpAtThePolls.com — to bolster our recruitment efforts. We will continue this necessary push with so much on the line in the next two weeks.” The Daily Caller News Foundation recently published Ms. Martin’s op-ed, Making Election Integrity A Reality: Putting Words Into Action.

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Action has announced that the feature-length documentary INNOVATION RACE will be coming to select theaters on November 16, 2022. INNOVATION RACE boldly explores the imminent threat of China exploiting weaknesses in U.S. patent protection and presents solutions for restoring our dominance in innovation, technology, and invention. View the trailer here: InnovationRaceMovie.com “We are thrilled to share INNOVATION RACE with audiences on the big screen,” shares filmmaker Luke Livingston. “This film gives voice to fascinating inventors and informs the general public on issues impacting America’s leadership in innovation. We hope it is effective and that Americans rally behind the film’s message, because there is no prize for second place.” The film will launch in theaters as a one-night only event in the following cities: Tampa Chicago Denver Dallas-Ft. Worth Houston Phoenix Cincinnati Los Angeles/Orange County Pittsburgh San Francisco Orlando Washington, D.C. Seattle Created by Ground Floor Video, the filmmaking team of Luke and Jo Anne Livingston (INVALIDATED), and executive produced by Jenny Beth Martin and Tea Party Patriots Action, INNOVATION RACE shares a timely, dire warning of China’s commitment to using the weaknesses in our patent systems against us. While the film feels like the plot to a blockbuster political thriller, INNOVATION RACE exposes why this issue matters to all Americans, and is a reminder that there is no prize for second place. Protection of inventions and intellectual property is guaranteed in Article 1, Section 8 of the US Constitution. Yet these safeguards were weakened in 2011 after the America Invents Act passed, which opened up loopholes that have been exploited by not only China, but also Big Tech. There is an immediate need to amend this piece of legislation, or our country faces long-term consequences in the national security arena, on the economic front, and...
Atlanta, GA – Tonight, the Senate is expected to vote on a motion to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed to a short-term spending bill that would fund the government until December 16. Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) recently sent a letter to all Republican Senators urging them to oppose any spending bill that sets up a spending vote during the lame duck session. You can read the letter here. TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: "It is imperative that Republicans in the Senate, and moderates like Sen. Sinema, vote 'no' on the Democrats' stopgap funding bill. Voting for this continuing resolution, at its presented length, would kneecap the next Congress. This spending bill would only extend until December 16, meaning that the current Democrat-controlled Congress would still have time to complete spending bills for 2023, when many of them will no longer be in Congress. Unchecked and unnecessary spending is a dangerous thing, and no one is more likely to do it than liberal Congressmen with no constituents to answer to. "The last thing the country needs is to have the next Congress stuck with a full year of spending bills from their predecessors. The economy is in decline, wages are down, inflation is up. The southern border is in crisis. Since Joe Biden took office, America has been moving in the wrong direction. The next Congress will have a chance to correct the course, but not if its hands are tied by Democrats in the current Congress. There is no reason to vote for this funding bill. Instead, we need a continuing resolution that lasts until the next Congress can convene, so it will be able to weigh in on the spending its members’ constituents will hold them accountable for."
Tea Party Patriots Action Sends Letter to GOP Senators & Senator Manchin Urging Them to Stand Up for Taxpayers & Oppose September Spending Bill if It Sets Up Spending Vote During Lame Duck Session
Atlanta, GA – Today, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) sent a letter to every Republican Senator and Senator Joe Manchin urging them to vote against any Continuing Resolution (CR) – a short-term spending bill – if it only keeps the government funded through the “lame duck” congressional session between Election Day and the swearing in of the next Congress in January. In order to protect taxpayers from a “lame duck” spending spree, TPPA is calling for a Continuing Resolution that keeps the government funded until the next Congress convenes in January. To read the full letter, click here. “Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi are scheming to go on one final reckless spending spree in the waning days of the 117th Congress, and it’s up to you and your Senate Republican colleagues to prevent it,” TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin wrote in the letter. “Their plan is to pass a short-term Continuing Resolution that would keep the government funded just until mid-December – long enough to get past the November elections without having to worry about a government shutdown, but short enough that it will still allow a lame duck Congress to pass a full-year spending bill.” “On behalf of the three million supporters of Tea Party Patriots Action, I urge you to vote against any Continuing Resolution that lasts only long enough to keep the government funded until after the November election, but which allows the lame duck Congress to vote in mid-December on a full-year omnibus spending package,” Martin concluded. This summer, Townhall published Ms. Martin’s op-ed, Will Senate Republicans Stand Firm on Spending Negotiations? To read it, click here.
Atlanta, GA – – Tonight, President Biden delivered a speech on the "Continued Battle for the Soul of the Nation" in Philadelphia, PA. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: "Tonight, President Biden continued his tirade of dishonest rhetoric against those he fears. He repeated his lies that 'MAGA Republicans' are dangerous, doubling down on his errant claims that they're extremist. As a point of fact, the only person in this one-sided back and forth who is dangerous is Joe Biden himself. For centuries oppressive governments have used derogatory labels and incendiary language to target and debase their political opponents, inevitably leading to violence against them from the masses. What Biden is doing is no different. "It's laughable that Biden still thinks of himself as a president of unity. Since taking office, Biden has shown nothing but contempt for Republicans and conservative voters. "Democrats, clearly concerned about midterms, have pulled out their 2016 playbook. Biden's persistent dehumanization of so-called 'MAGA Republicans' and conservative voters is meant to divide the country into truculent partisanship. Just like Democrats' abhorrent behavior while President Trump was in office, Biden is telling the country that over 70 million Americans are their enemy. What more justification for oppression and vitriol do liberals need than the president himself pointing to conservatives and yelling, 'that's your enemy.' "Those who choose to follow the path of dangerous and inflammatory rhetoric know where it leads, to condoned illegal and immoral violence. Everyone taking part in this type of vitriol needs to be swiftly rejected by voters who have had enough and will make their voices heard. “No matter how much division Biden tries to sow, those who love this country, love the Constitution, and love our representative democracy will not take his bait. We...
“Pure Socialism” Will Cost Taxpayers $300 Billion Atlanta, GA – – Today, the White announced a plan to cancel up to $20,000 in college loan debt for each borrower who make less than $125,000 annually. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “If you paid off your student loans already, you should go to the Post Office and get a change of address form — so you can change your address to ‘Suckerville.’ “This is pure socialism – forcing hardworking taxpayers to pay $300 billion in college student debt that was knowingly and willingly assumed by the debtors. There is no such thing as loan ‘forgiveness.’ There is only loan transferral. People who knowingly and willingly took in debt will now have that debt assumed by people who did NOT knowingly and willingly take on debt. “This is a moral hazard and it’s ‘reverse class warfare’ with the biggest burden being shouldered by those who never went to college. “Economically, Biden’s action will further fuel inflation at a time when it’s already out of control because of the Democrats’ record spending spree. “Legally, Biden does not have the authority to have taxpayers assume $300 billion in debt with the stroke of a pen. Speaker Pelosi has admitted as much, which means Biden is knowingly taking illegal action for partisan gain. Again. This is simply outrageous. “We are confident the courts will overturn Biden’s order but it will cause tremendous chaos in the meantime.”
Judge Reinhart Had a Conflict of Interest & a Pattern of Bias, Should Be Removed as a Federal Magistrate Atlanta, GA – –Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) announced today that it filed a complaint for “unethical and prejudicial conduct” against Judge Bruce E. Reinhart, the judge who approved the warrant to search President Trump’s residence. The complaint accuses Judge Reinhart of having a “conflict of interest and a pattern and history of hostility to President Trump.” The complaint then lists seven “undisputed facts” supporting the accusation. The complaint was filed in the Judicial Council of the Eleventh Circuit. To read it, click here. Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “Judge Reinhart acted unethically in approving the warrant to search President Trump’s residence. Judge Reinhart is a Democrat who donated to former President Obama. The judge publicly denigrated former President Trump in social media posts. Just two months ago, he recused himself from a lawsuit involving President Trump in his suit against Hillary Clinton, citing a ‘conflict of interest.’ He has a history of ethical issues, most notably his conduct during the Jeffrey Epstein investigation and prosecution. He should be disciplined and removed as a federal magistrate. The entire episode involving the search of former President Trump’s home threatens the principle of ‘equal justice under law’ and the confidence of the American people in an unbiased judiciary.”
