Rep. Jim Jordan lists Trump’s fulfilled promises, asks Congress to follow his example

Today, Representative Jim Jordan tweeted a thread about the tremendous progress and results under President Trump in 500 days since he took office.

Canceling Part of the August Recess a Good Step in the Right Direction, More Needed

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took a step towards making Congress work by cancelling part of the August recess this week. This is an effort to keep Congress working until appropriations bills pass before the end of the fiscal year and to confirm President Trump’s long list of nominees. But Senators must stay in Washington more than 2 or 3 days each week in order to fight and overcome historic Democrat obstruction. “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 ...

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 ...

The Trump Administration’s Spring Cleaning Agenda: Deregulation

President Trump’s spring agenda includes more spring cleaning of the mess that former President Obama’s administration left behind. Trump is targeting duplicative and unnecessary liberal regulations that have been a burden on the economy, American businesses and the American people. The Daily Signal has the story: Trump’s reform agenda will cut across many areas and top priorities for deregulation include infrastructure development, emerging technologies, and “relief for small business,” a senior White House official said during a conference call coinciding with the announcement. The senior official cited Trump’s previous executive ...

Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Applauds the Trump Administration for Pulling the United States out of the flawed and failing Iran Nuclear Deal

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement, reacting to President Trumps decision to pull out of the Iran Nuclear Deal. “This is a great victory for our supporters, who began mobilizing against this flawed, Obama-led deal three years ago. Thank you, President Trump, for showing the wisdom and foresight so lacking in the previous administration, and among many senior leaders in Congress on both sides of the aisle. Iran is a clear threat to American allies and interests, they’re an impediment to lasting peace, and a supporter of terrorism. President Trump has done the right thing ...

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund (TPPCF) Chairman Jenny Beth Martin today released the following statement, expressing their gratitude to the Trump administration for taking the first steps to implement the $15 billion rescission package. “We are grateful to the Trump administration for this rescission package and fully support its implementation as a good first step. This is money that cannot be spent so it shouldn’t be spent. It should be returned to taxpayers as a down payment on future rescissions and spending cuts that the Republican congressional leadership has promised multiple times.”   ###

Pompeo: The Nuclear Deal was “built on Iran’s lies”

Israel announced that it obtained files from an Iranian storage facility that show Iran was planning to continue its secret nuclear weapons program before even signing the Iran Nuclear Deal with other global leaders back in 2015. This is just another example of how the nuclear deal has done and will do nothing to keep Iran in check. In response to the new information, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that this deal is “built on lies” and that Iran never intended to respect the deal. The Washington Examiner has the story: “For many years, the Iranian regime has insisted to the world that its nuclear program was peaceful,” Pompeo said in ...

Victory! Administration restores regulatory oversight at IRS and Treasury Dept.

Jenny Beth Martin wrote a column back in January urging the Trump administration to get Internal Revenue Service (IRS) back on track after years of the agency evading regulatory oversight of its tax rules. “The IRS should be held to at least the same standard — if not a higher standard, given its power over every single taxpayer in the nation, both individual and corporate — as every other executive branch department and agency.” Jenny Beth Martin wrote in her column. “[President Trump] can direct his Treasury secretary to direct his general counsel to update the 1983 memorandum of agreement between the Treasury general counsel and the ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: Gorsuch is an example of what our courts need

It’s been a year since Justice Neil Gorsuch was sworn in to the U.S. Supreme Court and not only has he made a big impact on the court, he has shown he’s the perfect pick to succeed the late Justice Antonin Scalia. The Washington Times has the commentary: The judiciary is the one co-equal branch of our government that can have long-lasting, profound and intimate bearing on the American people. Laws can be changed and even repealed, and executive orders can be reversed. But Supreme Court decisions — even the worst of them — can last for decades and generations. As just one example, the Plessy v. Ferguson decision — the one that codified ...
