Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Calls for Applying “Clyburn Standard” to All Members of Congress

Atlanta, GA – Statement from Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin: "It was South Carolina Representative James Clyburn, the Democratic whip at the time, who famously said, 'Silence is consent. We cannot be silent in this matter, because we do not consent to the conduct.' That was after Republican Congressman Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) accused President Obama of lying back in 2009. Mr. Wilson apologized. When Democratic leaders such as Speaker Pelosi, Majority Leader Hoyer and, yes, Mr. Clyburn himself, are silent about the repulsive words of their own freshman members, they are giving their consent.  It is time for Democratic ...

An $18.5 Billion Reason for a $5 Billion Border Wall

It’s day 13 of the government shutdown as President Trump remains strong on getting border wall funding added to a spending bill that will reopen the government. As it stands, Democrats are unwilling to compromise on $5 billion. If you thought that was a lot of money, consider the annual $18.5 billion already spent on illegal immigrants’ healthcare costs. Steadfast and Loyal has the details: Even though illegal aliens are in theory, unable to tap federal money through the Medicaid and ACA programs, there are exceptions and loopholes that cost federal, state and local taxpayers $18.5 billion a year. The main exception is for emergency ...

Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Responds to Pelosi’s Hawaii Vacation

Atlanta, GA—Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin today responded to news of Nancy Pelosi vacationing in Hawaii during the partial government shutdown. "Nancy Pelosi's hypocrisy knows no bounds. She is proving once again she's a 'let them eat cake' liberal. She complains about government employees out of work during the shutdown while she jets off to spend the holidays in sunny Hawaii rather than working to find a solution that will benefit all Americans. Quite a woman of the people. Lest we forget, several years ago she spent the holidays at a Hawaiian resort suite that ran for $10,000 per night. We'll remember this every ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: An Open Letter to President Trump

Since he was sworn in two years ago, President Trump has done his best to drain the swamp and enact laws to put America first. However, the president has been struggling to fulfill one particular promise with a stubborn Congress: obtaining funding for a wall to secure the border. Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin has some advice for President Trump to help him fulfill this important promise: Breitbart has Jenny Beth’s commentary: You hold the most powerful office in the world, and it is your obligation as President to use all the tools at your disposal to effect the change you promised. Please, begin with a prime-t...

Trump Must Stand Firm on Border Wall

President Trump met with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer to discuss funding for a wall to secure our southern border. Once again, the Democratic leaders pushed back on funding and refused to acknowledge the serious threat we face at the southern border if we don’t secure it. Trump wants $5 billion for the project and Democrats are only willing to budget for $1.3 billion for some “fencing.” Trump has warned that if Democrats aim for less than $5 billion, a partial shutdown is imminent. The meeting today shows that Pelosi and Schumer were never going to compromise on funding for a project that ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: More Hypocrisy From the Left on Illegal Immigration

Two weeks ago, immigrants illegally crossing the border near the San Ysidro port of entry threw rocks and bottles at border patrol agents as they tried to force their way over the fence separating the U.S. and Mexico. Border patrol agents, facing a large and unpredictable group of people, used pepper spray to halt immigrants coming towards them. No shots were fired and no one was seriously injured. It didn’t take long for Senate Democrats to use this incident to push their political agenda against a border wall and strong immigration. Have they forgotten there were more instances of tear gas used on illegal immigrants crossing the border during ...

Don’t Be Fooled by Liberal Media’s Narrative on the Caravan

About a hundred immigrants, including women and children, made it to the southern border seeking asylum only to be pepper sprayed by U.S. Border Patrol agents – at least that’s what liberal media would have you believe is the entire story. Let’s add the facts: Immigrants illegally crossing the border near the San Ysidro port of entry threw rocks and bottles at border patrol agents as they tried to force their way over the fence separating the U.S. and Mexico. After making several commands for the immigrants to stop, border patrol agents used pepper spray to halt immigrants coming towards them. No shots were fired and no one was seriously ...

Increased Border Security Can Do A Lot More Than Just Stop the Caravan

The U.S. Army has arrived along the U.S.-Mexico border, preparing for the arrival of the caravan carrying migrants who will attempt to cross the border. The increase in border security has unexpectedly hindered illegal drug trafficking by the Gulf Cartel. The Washington Examiner has the story: According to an eyewitness report, troops and trucks are delivering construction equipment, portable bathrooms and security to several areas along the border, the first wave of President Trump’s promise to bolster immigration enforcement with 5,000 or more soldiers. The show of force is having the beneficial side effect of curbing illegal drug traffic...

Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Calls on Sen. Harris to Apologize for Comparing ICE to the KKK

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement calling on Senator Kamala Harris to apologize for comparing ICE to the KKK. When Senator Kamala Harris compared ICE to the KKK during her questioning of Ronald Vitiello, President Trump’s nominee to lead ICE, she confirmed a deep-seated animus for law enforcement that has been manifesting itself among Democrats more publicly in recent years. ICE officers risk their lives every day when they rescue victims of sex trafficking - they literally save women and children from rape, abuse, and torture. ICE officers confront the violent cartels ...
