Tea Party Patriots Action Press Releases
Tea Party Patriots Action Reacts to Trump Speech
Atlanta, GA – Tonight, former President Trump delivered a speech hours after being arraigned in a Manhattan courthouse. Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement:“We, at Tea Party Patriots Action, stand by President Trump as he fights this ongoing, never-ending witch-hunt. There is no excuse for Alvin Bragg, a Soros-funded prosecutor, to bring charges against a former President and a current presidential candidate. Since taking office, Bragg has repeatedly downgraded felonies to misdemeanors or dismissed them outright. Now, he is literally inventing methods of prosecution to charge Trump with a felony. Disgraceful. This type of persecution – weaponizing the government against a political foe – has no place in America. Grassroots conservatives are fired up. If Bragg’s intention was to demoralize conservatives and mobilize his left-wing base, he’s done the opposite.”
Tea Party Patriots Action Reacts to Trump Arraignment
Atlanta, GA – Today, former President Trump will be arraigned in a Manhattan courthouse after being indicted by a grand jury last week. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “Today, President Trump is voluntarily surrendering to Manhattan prosecutors. In doing so, he is acting with respect for our nation’s laws. The same cannot be said for the Manhattan prosecutors who are arresting a former President because of a political vendetta – something you would see in the former Soviet Union. The weaponization of government against political foes is outrageous and something Tea Party Patriots experienced firsthand during the Obama-era IRS scandal. We, at Tea Party Patriots Action, stand by President Trump as he fights the nexus of ‘woke prosecutors’ and legacy media. This is a sad day for America and for the rule of law.”
Tea Party Patriots Action Generates Over 4,000 Comments Opposing New Gas Stove Regulations as CPSC Comment Period Ends TODAY
Atlanta, GA – Today, the comment period for the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)’s possible ban on gas stoves ends. Soon after CPSC Commissioner Richard Trumka Jr. suggested a gas stove ban, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) launched a “Call to Action” urging its members and supporters to leave comments opposing new gas stove regulations. As of early Monday afternoon, TPPA helped 4,448 people to leave comments, almost half the total comments that were published. TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “There is no question the Biden administration wants to ban gas stoves, and the only way to stop them is to mobilize public pressure against such a ban. This is part of the administration’s ‘green agenda,’ which, as a practical matter, means making daily life more expensive and more inconvenient for hard-working Americans. With inflation already out of control as a direct result of the administration’s policies, Biden and his team should be embarrassed to propose new gas stove regulations. “Shortly after Commissioner Trumka proposed a gas stove ban, Tea Party Patriots Action launched a ‘Call to Action’ urging our members and supporters to leave comments opposing new regulations. We are proud to have helped generate 4,448 comments opposing new regulations. We will continue leading this fight, because it’s an outrageous left-wing assault on everyday American life.” In January, RealClearPolitics published Ms. Martin’s op-ed, They’re Coming for Your Gas Stoves and They’ve Already Started.

Tea Party Patriots Action Reacts to Trump Indictment
Atlanta, GA – Today, President Trump was charged by an out-of-control Manhattan prosecutor in connection with the 2016 non-disclosure agreement between Trump’s lawyer and Stormy Daniels. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “I am appalled. This is a continuation of the ongoing, never-ending witch-hunt against President Donald Trump. In this case, the left-wing, Soros-funded prosecutor has weaponized the government against a political opponent – something Tea Party Patriots experienced during the Obama-era IRS scandal. Alvin Bragg is attempting to bring new life into a seven-year-old case that federal prosecutors refused to touch because of the flimsy evidence. While we expect nothing less from leftists who hate Trump, do not lose faith in America. We will continue to stand for constitutionally-limited government and oppose anyone who would choose to weaponize government agencies against anyone."
Tea Party Patriots Action: President Biden Issues First Veto, Insists on Playing Politics with Retirement Accounts
Atlanta, GA – Today, President Biden issued his first veto, blocking a Congressional Review Act resolution of disapproval that would have overturned his administration's new Department of Labor (DOL) rule. The new rule allows private retirement plan fiduciaries to consider environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors when making investments. In response, TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: "Despite this resolution passing in both the House and Senate, Biden just issued his first veto to prop up his climate agenda and encourage ESG investing for retirement fund fiduciaries. An investment firm is not a SuperPAC or political entity. The funds these firms manage are not political donations. These are retirement funds entrusted to investment firms with one purpose and one purpose only, to produce the maximum return for retiring and retired Americans. It isn't complicated; it's common sense. "The House and Senate both agreed in a bipartisan fashion that fund managers should not play politics with retirees’ money. Biden is wrong to have vetoed this measure. Sadly, it’s no surprise. It’s what we’ve come to expect from Joe Biden and his administration, which politicizes everything it touches.”
President Biden’s Banking Collapse, A Financial Disaster of His Own Creation
Atlanta, GA –On Friday, Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) was closed by regulators following a $1.8 billion loss in asset sales and its failure to secure additional capital. Since then, two additional major banks have also collapsed. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: "When Biden took office, the nation was poised for recovery. All he had to do was keep the ship on a steady course. Instead, Biden and Democrats swiftly enacted a government spending spree, driving up inflation and forcing the Federal Reserve to continually hike interest rates to cool down Biden's inflationary-fueled economy in recession. Those same interest rate hikes brought about by Bidenflation are part of what caused the collapse of SVB, turning their multitude of higher-yielding bonds into a massive investment flop. Now Biden wants to bail out the banks on the taxpayer dime, furthering his tax-and-spend agenda. "The Biden administration has proved that its agenda works for no one, not for hardworking Americans and not for investors and the banks. Bluntly put, the Biden economy is an unmitigated disaster. The Wall Street bailout of 2008 was the genesis of the Tea Party movement, fueling grassroots outrage that spilled over into the early Obama era. The socialistic 2008 bailout was a mistake, one that we must not repeat now with SVB or any other bank."ReplyReply allForward CP
Tea Party Patriots Action Urges House to Pass Legislation Declassifying Intel on Covid-19 Origins
Atlanta, GA – Today, the House is expected to vote on legislation to help make public information relating to the origins of COVID-19. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), cleared the Senate by unanimous consent last week. It would require that the director of national intelligence declassify “as much information as possible about the origin of COVID-19,” then make it available to the public. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement:"Three years ago, President Trump said the pandemic likely originated in China with a lab leak. Tea Party Patriots Action said the exact same thing. So did a small minority of medical and national security experts. Today, it's becoming increasingly clear that we were right. “But during the past three years, we took a lot of abuse. The federal government, led by the Liar-in-Chief, Dr. Anthony Fauci, launched a massive propaganda campaign to convince the public that the lab leak origin was a conservative myth. Dr. Fauci blatantly manipulated the public, as new emails from the House Oversight Committee reveal. The FBI was eagerly working with Twitter to suppress dissidents, as the 'Twitter Files' make clear to all. “The public has the right to know everything the government knows about the origins of COVID-19. This is important for public health, free speech, and national security. The House must pass Senator Hawley's bill to make public information relating to the origin of COVID-19. There is no legitimate argument against it."
Tea Party Patriots Action Blasts Tax-Hiking Biden Budget Ahead of Philadelphia Speech
Atlanta, GA – Today, President Biden is coming to Philadelphia to unveil his latest budget proposal. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: "President Biden's budget will be dead on arrival, as it should be. Biden no longer has a Democrat majority in both chambers of Congress to pass his record spending and borrowing. The new House Republican majority is committed to restoring fiscal sanity, using the debt ceiling discussions as leverage to enforce fiscal discipline. Biden is boasting that his budget will protect Medicare. Nothing could be further from the truth. As long as America is running jaw-dropping deficits and adding to our $31 trillion debt, nothing is safe. The soaring inflation we've experienced under Biden — truly, just another tax — is the canary in the coal mine for a larger debt crisis in the near-future. House Republicans will throw Biden's budget in the trash; it's not worth the paper it's written on."
Tea Party Patriots Action Lauds Congress for Blocking Liberal DC City Council’s Attempt to Weaken Penalties for Violent Crime
Atlanta, GA – Today, the Senate passed a Republican-led resolution to block Washington, D.C.’s revised criminal code — which weakens penalties for certain violent crimes — from taking effect. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: "Since the 'defund the police' movement began three years ago, crime has been exploding in Democrat-run cities all across America. As in other urban areas, crime in Washington, DC is off the charts. Unlike other urban areas, however, Washington, DC, is unique — it is the seat of the federal government. The Constitution recognizes Congress’s authority over the District of Columbia. “The Senate just joined the House in moving to block the ultra-progressive D.C. City Council’s attempt to weaken penalties for violent crimes, a move that is so outrageous even many Democrats in the House and Senate balked. President Biden has said he will not veto the actions of the Congress in this case. “In light of the disastrous effects of the ‘defund the police’ movement, it is time to reverse course and restore the rule of law. Biden needs to take on the left-wing, soft-on-crime elements of his party before they do even more damage to America."
Tea Party Patriots Action Urges House to Pass Protecting Speech from Government Interference Act
Atlanta, GA – Today and tomorrow, the House is scheduled to consider H.R. 140, the Protecting Speech from Government Interference Act. This bill would bar federal employees from using their official authority or influence to promote censorship or to advocate for that action by a third party. Employees found to violate the prohibition would be subject to civil penalties. In anticipation, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: "Under normal circumstances, this bill would be unnecessary, because it's a foundational principle of our country that every American has a right to free speech and government efforts to suppress free speech are illegal. However, we are not living in normal circumstances. The 'Deep State' is out of control and has weaponized the FBI, the DOJ, the DHS, and other federal departments to suppress free speech by Americans who are challenging the status quo, whether that's regarding the origins of Covid-19, the effectiveness of mask and vaccine mandates, or election integrity, among numerous other key issues. The 'Twitter Files' proved the urgency of the need for legislation reimposing the red line between the 'Deep State's' self-protection and self-promotion on the one hand and the First Amendment on the other. We enthusiastically urge every Member of the House to vote for H.R. 140, the Protecting Speech from Government Interference Act. This should not be a red issue or a blue issue, it should be a bipartisan issue, and we are hopeful it can pass both Houses of Congress and get to President Biden's desk."
