Tea Party Patriots Action Press Releases
Atlanta, GA – Today, Senate Majority Leader Schumer is having the Senate vote to break the filibuster in order to pass two pieces of legislation: The DC Takeover of Elections to Make It Easy to Cheat Act, and the Pelosi Power Grab. Nearly every Senate Democrat is expected to vote in favor of breaking the filibuster. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “Senate Democrats should not tamper with what has worked for more than 230 years. As Senator Manchin pointed out last week, never in the entire history of the United States has the Senate brought debate to a close with a simple majority. There is a reason the Founders gave us two legislative chambers, not one, and there is a reason one of them works by majority rule and the other works by supermajority rule. We urge every Senator to vote against breaking the filibuster, because breaking the filibuster would break the Senate. This should never have been brought up for a vote in the first place.”
ATLANTA, GA – Today, the Supreme Court overturned the Biden Administration’s OSHA vaccine mandate for private employers but upheld the CMS vaccine mandate for health care workers. Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement reacting to the Supreme Court rulings: “The Supreme Court got it half-right today by overturning the Biden Administration’s OSHA vaccine mandate for private employers. That ruling is a massive win for the Constitution and the notion of limited and enumerated powers, and for freedom in America. However, the Court’s decision to uphold the CMS vaccine mandate for health care workers is still a significant blow to freedom. No one should lose his or her job over his or her vaccination status. The Supreme Court’s job is to defend Americans when our basic liberties are under attack. The Court failed the approximately 17 million Americans who are covered by the health care worker mandate.”
Georgia Leaders & Tea Party Patriots Action Release Statements about President Biden’s Speech in Atlanta Today
ATLANTA, GA – Today, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin and several Georgians who are part of the Georgia election integrity coalition that Tea Party Patriots Action is building released statements in response to President Biden’s speech in Atlanta. The statements are listed below: "The Democrats lied about the Georgia election reform law. Now they are lying about the Right to Cheat Act and the Pelosi Power Grab - two bills they want to ram through Congress because they know those bills will turn a temporary governing majority into a permanent one." - Jenny Beth Martin, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman *** “The Tenth Amendment to the Constitution provides states sovereign rights. This includes their right to control their own elections! The Tenth Amendment is what protects us from a tyrannical government! The states joined the Union on the condition of states' rights. “We have already witnessed the disastrous policies of the Biden Administration, created by the far-left establishment in DC who want to turn our country into a ‘one-party’ socialist country, take away the power of the people, and give it to the government. They know that controlling our elections is their only hope to stay in power and complete their goal of making America a communist-controlled country! We can't let that happen. How is that working for Cuba? Venezuela? Russia?” - Salleigh Grubbs, Chair, Cobb GOP *** “We have heard no concerns from the Biden / Harris administration in regards to the real election integrity issues in Georgia such as: “Removing the voting system that a U.S. District Court found to be illegal;Getting access to publicly inspect Fulton County mail-in ballots that senior poll managers have sworn are counterfeit;Helping to achieve accountability for state and county actions that destroyed over a million...
ATLANTA, GA – The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments today on the Biden Administration's vaccine mandates. Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “It is time for the Supreme Court to finally shut down President Biden’s lawless mandates requiring hardworking Americans to get vaccinated, succumb to rigorous testing, or be fired from their jobs because they want to make their own decisions about what goes into their body. The Constitution does not give the president the legal authority to issue such edicts. If the President can force people to be fired from their jobs, where does it end? What is the limiting principle? Particularly at a time when we are still recovering from the damage done by lockdowns — see, for example, the disappointing news jobs report — our government should not be making employment even more difficult. Let's hope the Supreme Court does the right thing and protects Americans from this outrageous government overreach.”
Tea Party Patriots Action Calls on McCarthy to Strip Cheney & Kinzinger from GOP Conference Membership
ATLANTA, GA — Today, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) called on House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and the House Republican Conference to immediately strip Representatives Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger of their conference membership. TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released this statement: “As members of the January 6 committee, Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger have become willing agents of Speaker Pelosi’s war on President Trump, Trump Administration officials, and Trump supporters. The January 6 committee is a partisan exercise designed to punish our former President and discredit the 74 million Americans who voted for him. “The Republican Conference must stop allowing the Democrats to give the false appearance of bipartisanship in the committee. Membership in the Republican Conference is not a right, it’s a privilege. Cheney and Kinzinger have forfeited that privilege. The Republican Conference should make it official and remove them from the conference immediately.”
In January 6 Committee Dispute, Tea Party Patriots Action Supports a President’s Right To Receive Confidential Advice
ATLANTA, GA — Today, the House of Representatives will hold a vote on whether or not to hold former Congressman and White House chief of staff Mark Meadows in criminal contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with a subpoena from the January 6 Committee. In anticipation of that vote, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released this statement: “Presidents need to know that they can rely on their advisors to give the president their best counsel, without fear that the advice will be revealed years later. That axiom is as old as there have been presidential advisors, and our law long has recognized this executive privilege. “What the January 6 Committee is doing now, in seeking to criminalize this dispute, is simply an extension of the political warfare launched by congressional Democrats years ago, when they executed not one, but two attempts to remove President Trump via impeachment. “We urge all Representatives to stand up for the principle of separated powers and vote against the resolution.”
ATLANTA, GA – President Biden held a press conference today trying to make a case for skyrocketing inflation and economic failures, but we all know it is because of his terrible liberal policies. Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement in reaction to President Biden’s comments: “President Biden continues to show he's divorced from reality on the economy. His radically liberal agenda is creating disasters left and right. Americans have become increasingly frustrated with the current economy as inflation skyrockets and their hard-earned money doesn’t stretch as far as it used to. Inflation is so bad that the left is encouraging people to look for other foods to eat on Thanksgiving instead of turkey because of surging prices. President Biden’s continued push for what we used to think of as Bernie Sanders' radical socialist agenda — but which has now been taken on as his own by President Biden — will surely cripple our economy even further if it's passed. President Biden’s comments today are nothing more than an attempt to create a distraction from the crises that he has created. He needs to spend more time solving these problems, rather than making up excuses for them.”
Tea Party Patriots Action Applauds Senate Republicans for Mounting Challenge to Biden Vaccine Mandate
Atlanta, GA – Senate Republicans are filing a formal challenge to President Biden’s vaccine mandate under the Congressional Review Act. All 50 Republican Senators joined the filing. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement: “President Biden’s illegal and immoral vaccine mandate is the most important issue facing the country today, which is why we have organized 500 nationwide protests against it. We thank the Republican Senators for uniting against the mandate, using the Congressional Review Act to mount a formal challenge. The next step is to defund the mandate. The government is currently being funded by a Continuing Resolution that expires on December 3rd. No Senator or Member of Congress should vote for a C.R. or a long-term spending bill unless it specifically prohibits funding for the mandate. Any bill funding the government requires 60 votes in the Senate, which means passage requires at least 10 Republican votes. Now is not the time for Republicans to waver in pale pastels, but a time to stand boldly for individual freedom, medical freedom, and our inalienable rights. If Senate Republicans stay united, they have the leverage to crush the Administration’s mandate.”
ATLANTA, GA - After news that OSHA has suspended all implementation and enforcement efforts related to the Emergency Temporary Standard regarding COVID-19 vaccine and testing in the workplace, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “News of OSHA’s suspension of the vaccine mandates today marks a significant victory for the American people and for our Constitution. Government should not be in the business of mandating medical treatment, especially without any regard to the fact that each of us are unique and have different medical dispositions. Individual medical decisions should be left to the doctor-patient relationship, something that government has been trampling on for years. Now, it is time for every single entity that is mandating vaccination as a requirement for participation to follow suit and drop these draconian mandates. Whether it be athletic associations, school districts, private businesses, state and local governments, the military, and all federal agencies, it is time to empower individuals with the guidance from their physicians to make these medical decisions on their own. We will continue to fight against these mandates as we hold medical mandate protests across the nation, and we will especially continue to fight to protect our children.”
Atlanta, GA – Today, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) announced an eighteen-city tour through Georgia to discuss election integrity issues and recruit Georgians for election integrity task forces. The tour will begin on Wednesday, November 10 with events in Woodstock, Cartersville, and Rome, and will conclude on Saturday, November 20 in Kennesaw. Once the Georgia tour is complete, it will be replicated in other states. Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin served on President Trump’s legal team in Georgia after the 2020 election. Ms. Martin issued the following statement: “Georgians know first-hand the importance of election integrity issues. The 2020 election was a wakeup call for all Americans, and especially Georgians, about safeguarding the right to vote. Our goal is simple: We should make it easy to vote and hard to cheat. Left-wing activists continue to push radical legislation, including the ‘Pelosi Power Grab,’ that would do the opposite. On our eighteen-city tour through Georgia, we will get into the nitty gritty of election integrity issues, and we will recruit our fellow citizens for election integrity task forces. I look forward to speaking at several of these events.” To see the full schedule of Georgia events and RSVP, click here.
