Tea Party Patriots Action Reacts to House Passage of Inflation Reduction Act

Atlanta, GA – – Today, the U.S. House passed the Inflation Reduction Act.  President Biden will sign the bill into law. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “After a year of negotiating among themselves, Democrats in Congress have passed a slimmed down version of ‘Build Back Better’ – even while knowing that further spending will continue to fuel the record-high inflation they created and increased taxes will further slow our economy.  Rarely do you see a bill that is so tone deaf and destructive.  This proves that Democrats care more about left-wing interest groups than American job creators and hardworking American taxpayers. The American people will not forget this left-wing assault on our fragile economy.”

Tea Party Patriots Action Calls For Biden Impeachment After Raid of Trump Residence

Atlanta, GA – Today, the FBI searched the Mar-a-Lago home of former President Trump. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement:  “Joe Biden must be impeached. The raid on President Trump’s home should have never happened. It is beyond wrong. It is obviously part of the ongoing witch hunt that began before President Trump ever took office, and which continues to this day. “President Obama’s IRS unlawfully targeted citizen groups that dared to oppose Obama policies. Now President Biden’s FBI and DOJ have continued the tradition of politicizing federal agencies and have upped the ante by attacking a former president. “We are supposed to be a constitutional republic not a banana republic. This madness must be stopped. “Anyone and everyone who cares about the future of our constitutional republic must get out to vote in record numbers in the fall elections. We must elect a Congress that will use its constitutional oversight and power of the purse to rein in an out-of-control executive and return power to the people.”

Tea Party Patriots Action Slams Deficit-Reduction Gimmick in Manchin-Schumer Deal

Atlanta, GA – Two days after the release of the Manchin-Schumer reckless tax-and-spend plan, the economists at the Penn Wharton Budget Model released their analysis of the plan, showing that its so-called “deficit reduction” is negligible. In response, Tea PartyPatriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “Joe Manchin’s favorite economists have shown that his plan’s so-called ‘deficit reduction’ is virtually nonexistent. According to the Penn Wharton Budget Model analysis, the ‘deficit reduction’ is $248 billion over ten years, not $300 billion. And that’s only if you don’t do the real analysis, and count the cost of the expanded ObamaCare subsidies for the full ten years, rather than only counting the front-end-loaded three years included in this plan. If you do the proper calculation for the full ten years, the ten-year deficit reduction shrinks to just $89 billion — less than a third of the advertised savings — a virtually nonexistent amount in a multi-trillion dollar budget. “This should surprise no one. This is what Democrats did with the initial rollout of ObamaCare more than a decade ago — they launched the benefits at the front end, and delayed the costs until after the next presidential election. It is an irresponsible method of governing, and it should be defeated now as it should have been defeated then.” “The growth would be even more historic if we cut taxes AND cut spending at the same time. It takes enormous courage to do either one of these, much less both at the same time. Either one or both will end the cycle.”

Tea Party Patriots Action Opposes Proposed So-Called “Assault Weapons” Ban Legislation

Atlanta, GA – Today, the U.S. House Judiciary Committee will take up proposed legislation that would ban certain so-called “assault weapons.” The bill, sponsored by Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), would prohibit the sale, transfer, import and manufacture of hundreds of models of semi-automatic weapons. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “The U.S. Constitution is very clear about the Second Amendment, which says, ‘the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.' There is no asterisk, no secret note listing exceptions to the words 'shall not be infringed.' Democrats want to trample the Constitution, and in the process would be removing the ability for law-abiding American citizens to exercise their Second Amendment right. It's no secret that many liberals would be happy to strip citizens of the right to bear arms entirely and would settle for accomplishing that inch by inch, which is why it is especially important that we firmly stand up against the infringing of any of our Constitutional rights." While Ms. Martin’s two children were in high school, two would-be shooters were planning an attack on the high school and were caught before the attack. They were convicted and sentenced to prison for decades.

Tea Party Patriots Action Applauds SCOTUS Ruling Overturning Roe v. Wade

Atlanta, GA – On Friday morning, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) issued its ruling in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, ruling that the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion. As a result, Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey were overruled. Authority to regulate abortion is now returned to the people and their elected representatives.In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “Today’s Supreme Court ruling is a victory for constitutional governance. The Constitution is silent on the matter of abortion, and the Supreme Court that issued the Roe ruling 49 years ago was simply wrong when it did so. With the issuance of today’s ruling, the five members of the Supreme Court who joined to overturn Roe have courageously taken a stand in defense of constitutional principles, and we applaud them for it. The question of abortion now goes back to the states and to the democratic process, where it should have been all along.”

Tea Party Patriots Action Slams Gun Control Bill, Opposes Passage

Atlanta, GA – On Tuesday night, the Senate voted to advance a gun control bill that, among other things, provides grants for states to implement ‘red flag laws’ and makes 18-20 year olds wait longer to exercise their constitutional rights. Fourteen Senate Republicans joined Democrats in voting to advance the legislation.  Senate Majority Leader Schumer says he expects to pass the bill before the Independence Day recess. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “When House Minority Whip Steve Scalise was asked if he supports ‘red flag flaws,’ he said they ‘happen to be unconstitutional.’  If that’s good enough for Scalise – who was shot by a deranged gunman five years ago – that should be good enough for the rest of us.  ‘Red flag laws’ are unconstitutional and impractical. Connecticut was the first state to implement a ‘Red flag law’ in 1999 but it didn’t stop the Newtown shooting in 2012.  Furthermore, 18-20 year olds should be able to fully exercise their constitutional rights, and it’s appalling that fourteen Senate Republicans voted to gut those rights.  What part of ‘shall not be infringed’ do they not understand?  If Senate Republicans can’t hold the line now, how can we expect them to hold the line if they win the majority in November?”   While Ms. Martin’s two children were in high school, two would-be shooters were planning an attack on the high school and were caught before the attack.  They were convicted and sentenced to prison for decades.   Last week, CNS News published Ms. Martin’s op-ed, Steve Scalise Is Right: 'Red Flag' Laws Are the Wrong Way to Go.

Tea Party Patriots Action Applauds Victory for Free Speech and Dissolution of Biden Administration’s Orwellian Disinformation Governance Board

Atlanta, GA – Today, the Washington Post reported that the Department of Homeland Security's Disinformation Governance Board (DGB) has been put on 'pause,' following criticism to the Biden's administration's pick to lead the department, Nina Jankowicz.   Jenny Beth Martin, Honorary Chairman of Tea Party Patriots Action, has issued the following statement in response:  “If the Washington Post is correct, the Disinformation Governance Board is dead. Good riddance. “ Beyond that, this is a remarkable piece of journalism. In the act of leaking to Washington Post all the behind the scenes details of how the DGB was poorly rolled out and then improperly defended, the Biden Administration is engaging in what may be an even larger and more insidious act of disinformation — the notion that the DGB’s purposes were noble, and it fell only to the deliberate lies of a bunch of right wing crazies.   "In fact, the DGB never should have been established in the first place, because it is not the government’s job to monitor and police political speech in America. The First Amendment declares that ‘Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech.’ It does NOT say ‘Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech except for that speech the Biden Administration deems impermissible or even politically inconvenient.’  “Oddly, this DGB was supposed to be powerful enough to combat foreign operatives and global disinformation campaigns. For three weeks, the Biden Administration has scolded us that this was all about foreign disinformation. But some domestic ridicule shut it down? Really?"

Mandated Community Masking for Airborne Respiratory Viruses

In response to the current CDC guideline recommending mask or respirator use over nose and mouth on public transportation for ages 2 and up, the Global Covid Summit Organization of over 18,000 verified Physicians and Scientists strongly recommends the permanent suspension of the federal mask mandates for all public transportation, airports and airplanes. The body of evidence is clear. Masks of all types are ineffective and potentially harmful. There has never been an instance during this pandemic where face coverings were appropriate tools within the Community to mitigate infection or viral spread. The potential harm includes lowering blood oxygen and raising carbon dioxide. These, among others referenced below, such as self and cross contamination, are important safety concerns particularly at high altitudes in close quarters. Industrial Hygiene experts in addition to Global Covid Summit scientists, have held this position from the outset and continue to oppose the government and CDC’s stance on this policy. Stephen Petty, CIH, CSP, PE 45-year professional Facial coverings do not dilute, destroy or contain airborne hazards and are not considered by CDC or OSHA to be Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Even the new ASTM mask standard [ASTM F3502-21- Standard Specification for Barrier Face Coverings (BFCs)] states that masks are not PPE and are not protective; therefore, facial coverings are not part of the Industrial Hygiene (IH) Hierarchy of Controls. The primary mechanism for transmission declared by CDC (May 7, 2021) is through airborne aerosol particles and not, as previously stated, by fomite or respiratory droplets.  Kristen Meghan Kelly MS-OSH- Senior Industrial Hygienist Mask mandates are an improper control method both as source control and respiratory protection. Respirators go through NIOSH testing and approval. Masks provide a false sense of protection and contribute to self and cross contamination due to lack of proper ratings for use and improper use by the...

Tea Party Patriots Action Slams CDC for Tracking Tens of Millions of Americans by Phone During Pandemic

Atlanta, GA – The CDC paid for location data harvested from tens of millions of cell phones to track compliance with lockdown measures, according to a new report. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “Xi Jinping must be smiling today, pleased to learn that his communist government’s surveillance-state thinking has been adopted by an agency of Joe Biden’s U.S. Government. Tracking cell phones to capture people going to church during the pandemic? Seriously? This is outrageous. Sadly, it’s come to be expected from the Biden Administration, which seems to believe it has the authority to snoop into everything and everyone it wants.”

Tea Party Patriots Action Targets 5 Vulnerable Senate Democrats on Title 42 With New AlignAct Campaign

Atlanta, GA – Today, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) launched an AlignAct campaign to mobilize its three million members to pressure five vulnerable Democrat Senators to do more than spout empty words about Title 42 and instead actually take action to keep Title 42 in place.  The Biden Administration is ending Title 42 – the Trump-era policy allowing the quick expulsion of migrants at the southern border because of the pandemic. Without Title 42, illegal crossings will more than double to an estimated 18,000 per day. TPPA’s campaign is targeting Senators Mark Kelly of Arizona, Michael Bennet of Colorado, Raphael Warnock of Georgia, Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire, and Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada. These Democrats have publicly opposed the Administration’s decision to repeal Title 42, but when these Senators were given the chance to vote to keep it, they voted the wrong way. To learn more about TPPA’s AlignAct campaign, click here. TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “The Biden Administration’s decision to end Title 42 is madness.  Just days after they said Title 42 was no longer needed because the pandemic is easing, they extended the mask requirement for public transportation. Even with a federal judge overturning the mandate, the Administration is threatening to appeal.  The Administration is walking into a disaster by a repealing Title 42.  Congress has the power to keep Title 42 in place but only if the Senate Democrats who publicly support keeping Title 42 use their legislative power.   Words are meaningless without action.  That’s why TPPA is mobilizing our grassroots activists to pressure five vulnerable Senate Democrats who publicly support keeping Title 42 but voted the wrong way when given the chance. We’re going to keep the pressure on until their actions match their words.”    Today, CNS News published Ms. Martin’s op-ed, Vulnerable Senate Dems Face...
