Will Pelosi Act on the Shush Fund?

If the #MeToo movement permeated the U.S. Supreme Court nomination process and advocates were demanding transparency and justice then, why aren’t they doing the same thing for the congressional shush fund? Congress used taxpayer money to quiet sexual harassment and other claims of officeholders, and the Democrats who backed the #MeToo movement barely spoke on the issue. Is incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi—who preaches for “transparency” and “justice” — going to take action on this issue? Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin ...

An Unarmed People in the Socialist Dictatorship of Venezuela

Venezuela has become increasingly totalitarian under Nicolas Maduro and the country under his rule faces mass hunger, starvation and a lack of medical supplies. The cherry on top of the disastrous socialist dictatorship is the inability for the people to defend themselves and take back their country, thanks to a 2013 gun-control law disarming all citizens. Fox News has the story: “Guns would have served as a vital pillar to remaining a free people, or at least able to put up a fight,” Javier Vanegas, 28, a Venezuelan teacher of English now exiled in Ecuador, told ...

Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Calls on Pelosi to Name the “Shush” Fund Incumbents

Atlanta, Ga. – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin today called on Nancy Pelosi to expose the names of those incumbents who took advantage of the Congressional “Shush” Fund when she takes office in the new Congress.   “Nancy Pelosi's first priority upon taking office must be naming the names of the incumbents who took advantage of the special 'Shush Fund' to muzzle women who had legitimate claims against them.

Trump Must Stand Firm on Border Wall

Our Healthcare Mess Could Get Messier

Remember when Nancy Pelosi famously said we have to “pass the bill to find out what’s in it?” Years later, we are left with ObamaCare and Americans are now paying more for healthcare and life-saving drugs. For nearly two years, the Trump Administration has made a resounding effort to drain the swamp and cut Obama-era regulations. As part of the tax reform package, Republicans passed a law last year gutting the tax penalty that required Americans to opt in for low-quality health insurance. A complete repeal effort, however, has been a lost cause and House Republi...
