This Week's Action Items
The impeachment trial begins in the Senate this week, so the two most important actions so far will be to call both of your Senators and to combat the left’s lies via social media and other communications.
Action Item #1
Call both of your Senators to urge them to vote for acquittal when a vote comes. Let them know whether you watched the House hearings or read transcripts, etc., and you can say:
“The Democrats do not have anything on President Trump. Even the articles of impeachment are weak and without a specific crime. I urge you to vote to acquit President Trump when the vote comes.”
Action Item #2
Hitting back against the lies and mainstream media on social media is going to be VERY important. Sign up for our Trump Defense Team email list to get the information you need to tweet and post to Facebook. Even if you don’t do social media, you can use the information we email out in emails, calls, and letters to the editor.
On Wednesday, October 30, 2019, we filed an official ethics complaint about Speaker Nancy Pelosi with the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) along with dozens of like-minded organizations.
In the complaint, we argue that Speaker Pelosi has violated the Official Code of Conduct of the House of Representatives through a pattern of abuse of power, demonstrating that she is unfit to continue to serve as Speaker of the House.
Please take a few minutes to read through the details and evidence documented in the complaint. If you would like to sign on to the complaint, please fill out the signature form at the bottom.
MAKE SCHIFF RESIGN PETITION
On October 8, 2019, Tea Party Patriots Action filed an official complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics to request an investigation into Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), and his multiple violation(s) of House Rule XXIII.
Rep. Schiff has:
- Lied to the public and to the media about his role and that of the staff of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence with the “whistleblower,” denying that he and the majority staff had met with the whistleblower. Those statements were false.
- Fabricated testimony to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and only when caught, attempted to excuse his lie by brushing it off as “parody,” as though parody is now an accepted form of evidence.
- Previously used and abused his position on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to seek damaging and negative information about President Trump from Ukrainian sources, including the use of House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence staff to seek such materials.
Sign the petition now if you think that Adam Schiff should be censured by the House of Representatives, should be removed from his Intel committee chairmanship, and must resign from Congress immediately as a result of his lies and violations of House rules, as well as his continued efforts to exploit his access to power to pursue his own personal, political agenda!
We launched the Trump Defense Team in order to push back against Nancy Pelosi’s decision to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump. This revelation is absolutely absurd, because just like in the Russia hoax, President Trump did nothing wrong.
In fact, President Trump was simply trying to get to the bottom of the corruption that led to the Russia hoax and the interference by government officials in the 2016 election, and now the Democrats are pushing impeachment hard. This is President Trump trying to drain the swamp and the Democrats trying to impeach him for it. It’s time for us to stand up and fight back! Sign the Petition and send the message to Congress that we support President Trump.

CONTACT YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS
Call the Capitol Switchboard and ask to be transferred to both of your senators’ offices and to your U.S. representative’s office. Or use the contact pages of your members of Congress for other ways to reach them.
(NOTE: You will need to call the Capitol Switchboard each time to be transferred.)
Or look up your members of Congress below.
The following Representatives are Democrats that, in 2018, won in districts that voted for President Trump in 2016, and where polling shows voters have swung back to President Trump and intend to vote for him again in 2020. It is highly unlikely that a voter would vote for President Trump in 2020, and on the same ballot, vote for a member of Congress that supports or votes for impeachment President Trump. So, these 31 members are absolutely the ones we must try to reach and persuade to oppose impeachment. Please use their Twitter handles below to make it known to them that their constituents and Americans across the country want them to oppose this impeachment sham and travesty of justice. Be sure to use the hashtags #NoEvidence and #DemsGot Nothing when you tweet each one!

Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to testimony by Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman that he was “uncomfortable” with President Donald Trump’s July 25 phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky: “Leaked testimony by Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman to the House Intelligence Committee is shocking in its revelation on three critical points….
Earlier this week, Rep. Denny Heck, a Democratic member of the House Intelligence Committee, told reporters that Republicans “are darn lucky these [hearings/depositions] weren’t public.” Implication: The information coming out is horrifically damaging to President Trump. Reality: If the information was truly damaging to Trump, Democrats would hold open hearings and would have already released transcripts of the testimonies….
WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) announcement today of a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump (R-N.Y.), Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented: “From day one, far-left members of the House Democratic Caucus have called for the impeachment of President Trump. Every single accusation made against him has proven to be false,…
Well, after months of back-and-forth, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has finally caved to the radical base of the Democrat Party and authorized a formal Inquiry of Impeachment. Or, maybe not. It was less than one month ago that the House Judiciary Committee actually did approve a resolution, strictly along party lines,…
Club for Growth has launched digital advertisements in four key Congressional Districts. The ads will run in CA-45, IL-14, NM-02, and VA-07 and ask voters to contact their Representatives in the U.S. House to stop supporting the phony impeachment process and instead start solving problems. The four districts all have freshman Democratic representatives who flipped seats previously held by Republicans in 2018….
The day former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter accepted a position on the board of directors of a Ukrainian energy company and the vice president did not announce to the rest of the Obama administration that he was recusing himself from all matters relating to Ukraine was the day Joe Biden created the conflict of interest that could, ultimately, deny him the presidency.
It doesn’t matter whether or not Hunter Biden’s “work” as a director of Burisma Holdings was tainted by corruption….
On Tuesday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that the House of Representatives would launch a formal inquiry into whether grounds exist to impeach President Donald Trump. The short speech lacked substance or any indication as to what the next steps would be in the process or whether anything will change at all….
Rep. Adam Schiff’s behavior as President Trump’s chief antagonist has gone so far over the top that he has violated the rules of the House of Representatives. His violations are so egregious that it’s time to sanction him and remove him from his position as chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. To that end, I recently filed a formal complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics, demanding that the office launch an official investigation….
The conservative nonprofit group Tea Party Patriots Action sent a letter Tuesday to the Office of Congressional Ethics demanding that it investigate whether House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., violated House rules in his pursuit of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump….
More and more, on the issue of impeachment, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her House Democrats are so far out over the tips of their skis that they remind me of Vinko Bogotaj.
Mr. Bogotaj is the 22-year-old Slovenian ski jumper whose spectacular ski jump crash became the iconic image showing “the agony of defeat” in the video montage used to open the old TV show, ABC’s “Wide World of Sports.”…
On Thursday, the House Judiciary Committee will consider a resolution that would establish the parameters of an impeachment investigation against President Donald Trump. The resolution is far outside the norm in the modern practice of impeachment in the House of Representatives. Essentially, Democrats on the committee are launching pseudo-impeachment inquiry without any authorization to do so. For more information on the history of impeachment, see Presidential Impeachment in History and Procedure, published by FreedomWorks in March 2019….
