Jenny Beth’s Journal: The real crisis at the border

Jenny Beth Martin spent the last few days at the southern border of Arizona and Texas seeing firsthand the real crisis Border Patrol agents and local sheriffs are facing. They won’t tell you that it’s a “humanitarian” crisis the way the liberal media would have you believe; it’s far worse than that. Agents and local sheriffs deal with illegal immigrant border crossing, human trafficking and drug trafficking, and it’s getting worse. The Hill has Jenny Beth’s commentary: The law enforcement authorities face different problems. In Arizona, they’re trying to stop drug traffickers who recruit teenage illegal immigrants to carry their ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: Amnesty goes against the Rule of Law

This week, the House of Representatives met over an issue that has vexed Congress for too long: illegal immigration. For too long, Democrats and many Republicans have turned a blind eye to the fact that illegal immigrants broke the laws of our country to skip in line ahead of people who have enough respect for the United States to follow our immigration laws. Now, some Republicans are pushing again for amnesty – which undermines our system of laws. The Hill has Jenny Beth’s commentary: As House Republicans prepare to meet Thursday to discuss various options on immigration reform, they should remember one of the things that makes America such ...

Guns aren’t the problem, people are the problem

After a few tragic school shootings this year, the issue of gun control has been raised once again with organized protests and student walkouts. The question must be asked why are there more school shootings today than in the past, even though states have passed stricter gun laws? The Daily Signal has George Mason University economics professor, Walter E. Williams’, commentary: Guns haven’t changed. People have changed. Behavior that is accepted from today’s young people was not accepted yesteryear. For those of us who are 65 or older, assaults on teachers were not routine as they are in some cities. For example, in Baltimore, an average ...

Jenny Beth Martin: No more August recess is a ‘step in the right direction’

On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell canceled the Senate’s month long “vacation” due to its historic obstruction of President Trump’s nominees and failure to pass appropriation bills. Forcing the Senate to remain in session during August recess, is clearly a step in the right direction and after all, is it too much to ask that Congress to work five days a week as most hard-working Americans do? PoliZette has the details: “Due to the historic obstruction by Senate Democrats of the president’s nominees, and the goal of passing appropriations bills prior to the end of the fiscal year, the August recess has been canceled,” ...

Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Thanks Sen. McConnell for “Step in the Right Direction,” Calls on Him to Keep Senate in DC this Weekend

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s announcement he is canceling part of the August recess. “Thank you, Senator McConnell—your decision to cancel most of the August recess is a step in the right direction. We cannot continue to allow Congress to wait until our government is nearing another shutdown to present a 2,000 page bill and then give lawmakers a ‘choice' of shutting down the government or passing a bill no one has read. That pattern has only led to irresponsible lawmaking—passing $2 trillion bills ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: Trump will make the deal with North Korea

In a few weeks – for the first time ever – a U.S. president is scheduled to sit down with the leader of North Korea to negotiate the possibility of denuclearization and peace. If President Trump plays his cards right and talks continue to go in an “America first” direction, the summit will happen on June 12 in Singapore. The way he is handling the discussions is similar to former President Ronald Reagan’s approach with former Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev; the negotiations were successful enough leading to the end of the Cold War. The Washington Examiner has Jenny Beth’s commentary: President Trump’s business background and ...
