Tea Party Patriots Action Press Releases
Atlanta, GA – Today, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund (TPPCF) President Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement, announcing that the Super PAC associated with the nation’s largest Tea Party group has endorsed former President Donald Trump for President: “Donald Trump was a magnificent president: our economy reached heights never before seen; our standard of living rose; crime was under control; our borders were better secured; America became an energy exporter and shed the shackles of dependence on foreign suppliers; foreign allies respected us even as our adversaries feared us; and our future looked bright. He was, in word and deed, the All-American President. Donald Trump was President to all, and he will be again. He didn’t target Americans who disagreed with him or spoke out against him. He didn’t have them arrested for exercising their First Amendment rights. In stark contrast to Joe Biden, Donald Trump honors the Constitution and loves America. He wants all Americans, no matter who they are, to more than succeed – he wants every American to thrive. He wants your family to flourish, even if you disagree with him. We know this is true because this is how he governed every day. Over the last several weeks, we have polled our grassroots supporters. They made their choice clear — Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund activists want Donald Trump to be returned to the White House as the nation's 47th president. Our grassroots understand that the American experiment is at risk, and that the man most able to save it is Donald Trump. Consequently, I am honored and proud to declare that on behalf of our three million supporters, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund endorses Donald Trump for president.”
Atlanta, GA – Today, the House Homeland Security Committee held a hearing titled “Voices For The Victims: The Heartbreaking Reality Of The Mayorkas Border Crisis.” This is the second and final hearing to kick off the impeachment process for DHS Secretary Mayorkas. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “This was a very powerful hearing, in which multiple witnesses shared their first-person accounts of the border crisis – an unnecessary crisis fueled by the failures of Secretary Mayorkas to enforce the law. The story of Josephine Dunn, who lost her daughter Ashley to fentanyl at age 26, was particularly heartbreaking. One of the committee members, Democrat Representative Dan Goldberg, responded to Ms. Dunn’s testimony by lecturing Ms. Dunn and berating her. Goldberg would rather attack a mom who buried her own daughter than confront the harsh realities of Mayorkas’ humanitarian disaster. Mayorkas himself was not at today’s hearing. If he took his job seriously, he would have come and testified and listened to the witness’ stories. With today’s hearing, momentum is building for something that should have already happened: Secretary Mayorkas must be impeached.” Last week, the Daily Caller published Ms. Martin’s op-ed, Alejandro Mayorkas Is Finally Getting a Taste Of Accountability.

Atlanta, GA – Today, the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Accountability Committee are considering a resolution recommending that the House find Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress, after the president's son failed to comply with a subpoena for closed-door testimony and instead held a press conference on Capitol grounds. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “This is a no-brainer: The president’s son willfully ignored a congressional subpoena, and then salted the wound by holding a press conference on the grounds of the Capitol to drive home his point — that he’s a Biden, the son of the president, so he’s safe, and he can ignore the rules that bind the rest of us. He believes he’s not going to be prosecuted by a Biden-appointed U.S. Attorney, so he believes he can taunt the congressmen who are conducting an investigation into his family’s corrupt business practices. What Hunter Biden did in holding that press conference was worse than simply defying a congressional subpoena. He not only should be held in contempt of Congress, he must be held in contempt of Congress. “Former Trump aides Stephen Bannon and Peter Navarro similarly defied congressional subpoenas. The House voted to hold both in contempt of Congress, and then referred both to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia for prosecution. U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves prosecuted both, and he won convictions against both for contempt of Congress. “Even though they think they are, the president and his son are not above the law. The House investigation into the Biden crime family is legitimate and important, and holding Hunter Biden in contempt is a necessary action to keep the investigation moving. The House committees must pass the resolution today, and the full House should follow promptly.”
Atlanta, GA – Today, the House Homeland Security Committee will begin impeachment hearings against DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, starting with a hearing focused on the effects in the heartland of our country of his failure to resolve the border crisis. Ahead of the hearing, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: "The House Homeland Security Committee is taking a crucial step in holding DHS Secretary Mayorkas accountable for his gross negligence in managing the southern border. Since he was sworn in, Mayorkas has overseen consistent record-breaking surges in illegal immigration, which have led to serious national security concerns, humanitarian crises, and public safety issues among American citizens. “Let’s be clear: The crisis at the southern border is the result of decisions made intentionally — it is the result of decisions made by officials of an administration determined to flout the law for the purposes of allowing millions of aliens to enter our country. This is wrong. “The time is overdue for Congress to impeach Alejandro Mayorkas.”
Atlanta, GA – Today, the Colorado Supreme Court disqualified President Trump from having his name on Colorado’s ballot. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “This ruling is a disgrace, and the latest example of the Democrats’ election interference against Joe Biden’s leading opponent in the 2024 election. There was no ‘insurrection.’ President Trump did not participate in any insurrection. Nor did he encourage anyone to do so. Furthermore, he has not even been charged with insurrection by any legal authority, let alone convicted. This is a sham ruling that will encourage additional Fourteenth Amendment lawsuits in other states. The U.S. Supreme Court must intervene and overturn this ruling as soon as practical.”
Atlanta, GA – Today marks the 250th anniversary of the monumental Boston Tea Party protest that launched the birth of the United States on December 16th, 1773. In commemoration of the anniversary, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: "As we reflect on the 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, we honor the courageous patriots who, two and a half centuries ago, sparked a revolution that swept through the colonies and across the globe. Today at Tea Party Patriots Action, we honor their legacy that fueled the flames of independence, and we remain vigilant in defending the principles of liberty for which they fought. Let us remember December 16, 1773 as the day our forefathers lit the fire of freedom, and celebrate their enduring contribution to the spirit of American independence. God Bless America!”
Atlanta, GA – Today, the House voted to elect Mike Johnson as its Speaker. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “Tea Party Patriots Action congratulates Mike Johnson on his election to Speaker, and congratulates House Republicans for finally getting it right. Speaker Johnson faces enormous challenges in working to fight the Biden Administration and the Democrat-controlled Senate to right our nation’s course, to restore fiscal discipline, and to defend our interests at home and abroad. We are confident he is ready to fight to secure our border, to get Washington’s reckless spending under control, to end the weaponization of government against its citizens, and to end the woke policies guiding our military. We at TPPA look forward to continue working with Speaker Johnson on behalf of our shared values and the tens of millions of Americans who live by them.”
Atlanta, GA – Today, the House Republican Conference voted to no longer back Rep. Jim Jordan for Speaker. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: "The GOP Conference just stabbed the majority of GOP voters in the back. The voters want Jim Jordan for Speaker. Weak-spined GOP Congressmen vote one way on the floor for voters to see and another on a secret ballot behind closed doors with no accountability or transparency. Nevertheless, We the People will never stop standing for America, liberty, and our Constitution. We are not going away."
Atlanta, GA – On Thursday night, President Biden addressed the nation from the Oval Office. The main topics were the conflict between Israel and Hamas and the war in Ukraine. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: "While many people today are talking about what President Biden said last night regarding the threats facing America and its interests abroad, few are talking about what he did NOT say — he did NOT say he was reversing his disastrous policy toward Iran. "That weak policy has emboldened Iran’s radical regime and refilled its coffers. That coddling policy has allowed Iran to advance its nuclear program. That feeble policy has permitted Iran to enhance its efforts to sponsor terrorism against America and its allies. "That policy must go. Until President Biden acknowledges his Iran policy is wrong and reverses it, America will continue to be in danger."
Atlanta, GA – Today, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will hold a hearing on President Biden’s nomination of former Treasury Secretary Jack Lew to be the U.S. Ambassador to Israel. In opposition to Lew’s nomination, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “Jack Lew should not serve as U.S. Ambassador to Israel. Not only was Lew one of the architects of the disastrous 2015 Iranian nuclear deal that President Biden is trying to revive, but Lew is an 'Iran sympathizer,' as Sen. Tom Cotton correctly points out. Lew lied to Congress about helping Iran dodge American sanctions, and he defended the Obama Administration’s refusal to veto blatant antisemitic resolutions proposed by the U.N. Security Council. At a time when Iran is funding and training terrorist groups to eradicate Israel and murder Americans — as we just witnessed in the horrifying Hamas attacks against Israel — we need to signal to the world our unrelenting backing for Israel and provide the aid needed as it rightfully fights back. Putting an Iran sympathizer in the job of Ambassador to Israel would send the wrong message at the wrong time. Jack Lew cannot serve as our Ambassador to Israel. His nomination must be defeated.”
