    This morning, the Tea Party Patriots’ super PAC endorsed Donald J. Trump for president. Jenny Beth Martin, CEO of the organization, announced the news in a statement and on “Fox and Friends” Thursday morning. “On the question of whether to support Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund — the super PAC affiliated with the largest Tea Party organization in the country — has made its choice,” Martin said in her statement. “Hillary Clinton stands opposed to everything the Tea Party stands for, on the policy, political, and personal fronts. Donald Trump, on the other hand, has...
  • How We Killed the Tea Party

    Politico Magazine ^ | Paul H. Jossey
    Greedy PACs drained the movement with endless pleas for money to support “conservative” causes and candidates. I worked for one of them. But Tea Party ideas live on. As we watch the Republican Party tear itself to shreds over Donald Trump, perhaps it’s time to take note of another conservative political phenomenon that the GOP nominee has utterly eclipsed: the Tea Party. The Tea Party movement is pretty much dead now, but it didn’t die a natural death. It was murdered—and it was an inside job. In a half decade, the spontaneous uprising that shook official Washington degenerated into a...

    Senator Ted Cruz has earned the endorsement of the largest Tea Party group in America. The Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund announced today they are backing the senator from Texas for President. “We seek a candidate who shares our values: personal freedom, economic freedom, and a debt-free future,” said Chairman Jenny Beth Martin in a press release. “I am proud to announce our endorsement for president of the United States: Senator Ted Cruz!”There were a number of steps for each candidate to be considered for the endorsement. Candidates filled out a questionnaire, were interviewed, underwent vetting by opposition research, and...

    WHY WE ENDORSED Endorsing a candidate for President is a serious thing, and, done properly, should be the result of extensive research and reflection. Making an endorsement on behalf of a large national organization that represents millions of supporters is an even more sensitive endeavor. Consequently, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, as a result of extensive polling and discussions with our Coordinators and supporters across the nation, enthusiastically endorses Senator Ted Cruz for President of the United States.

    Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are set to rally against the Iran deal next week in Washington, but will other 2016 candidates be joining them? According to Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin, whose group is organizing the event, not a single presidential candidate or campaign has expressed interest in attending the September 9 event at the Capitol. "I know no other candidates for president in their official capacity or even as a candidate have reached out to us at all about [attending]," Martin told the Washington Examiner Tuesday evening. "No one else has reached out to us." "I...

    Have YOU gotten the latest Tea Party Patriots emergency email...? If so, you're not alone. I just got another email from Jenny Beth asking if we have any more funds in the budget that can be directed toward grassroots activities in our targeted states. And honestly, I'm pretty stressed out... because the answer is NO. You see, right now, we're still $27,986 away from our weekly fundraising goal. And if I can't raise those funds in the next few hours, we're going to have to start cutting back our grassroots efforts in key states like Iowa, North Carolina, and New...

    Never mind that it’s 92 degrees and nearing the end of the day: Jenny Beth Martin has started jogging between houses. SNIP In from Georgia, Martin has been spending much of the past three weeks in the state, holding conferences, making fundraising calls, meeting with local chapters of the tea party, and yes, walking door-to-door to turn out the vote for conservative Senate hopeful Chris McDaniel. But unlike most volunteers here, as the head of the national Tea Party Patriots, a group she co-founded and helped bring to national prominence, she’s on track to make $450,000 this year doing all...

    .SEE: Tea party PACs reap money for midterms, but spend little on candidates Martin, the super PAC’s chairwoman, oversees all its expenditures, according to Broughton, meaning she sets her own $15,000 monthly fee for strategic consulting — payments that have totaled $120,000 since July. She also draws a salary as president of the Tea Party Patriots’ nonprofit arm — getting more than $272,000 in the 2012 fiscal year, according to the group’s most recent tax filing. Her twin salaries put her on track to make more than $450,000 this year, a dramatic change in lifestyle for the tea party...

    When the Tea Party Patriots threw its support last month behind Matt Bevin, the underdog conservative challenger trying to unseat top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell, President Jenny Beth Martin vowed the group would be “putting our money where our mouth is.” So far, its super PAC has mustered just $56,000 worth of mailers in Kentucky on Bevin’s behalf — less than half the amount it has paid Martin in consulting fees since July. The Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, which blew through nearly $2 million on expenses such as fundraising, polling and consultants in the first three months of this...

    Ted Cruz's townhall meeting by telephone last night drew over 104,000 participants. The previous record was 67,000 people. The event was sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots and Cruz was joined by Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK). The meeting was on the continuing resolution. TPP Co-founder Jenny Beth Martin said no special efforts were taken and the only announcements were the standard Facebook post for two hours and a robocall earlier in the day. The meeting was to bring people up to date on the defunding of Obamacare through the CR. Just as 2010, the Tea Party patriots are leading the...

    Just hung up, well, they hung up on me, from someone called "Tea Party Patriots". Of course they wanted money, touted the Constitution, etc. I told this woman the most important thing right now is the 2nd amendment, and where in these few issues she was spewing about fell. She started to speak of the Constitution, etc....I cut her off stating they are trying to take away our guns. Registration leads to confiscation; hence, termination. She skirted around this but I would not allow her. I again asked her WHERE does the right to bear arms fit in and again,...

    About 200 donors on the email distribution list for Karl Rove's group "American Crossroads" may be receiving an interesting message Thursday: Don't donate to American Crossroads. Conservative activist Brent Bozell, chairman of the group ForAmerica, obtained the distribution list and plans to send a letter blasting Crossroads' role in last year's election and the creation of its new independent group for the 2014 mid-term elections. Rove, the former top political adviser to President George W. Bush, generated strong pushback from tea party groups earlier this year when he announced the formation of another offshoot, "Conservative Victory Project," dedicated to helping...
  • Tea Party Dominates CPAC 2013 Agenda (And the Left ain't happy about it!)

    03/06/2013 8:42:04 PM PST · by 2ndDivisionVet · 13 replies
    For decades, the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) has been a barometer of the different political tendencies inside the right-wing. In the 1980s, Reagan administration officials and Reaganite New Rightists dominated the podium. Pres. Reagan spoke at CPAC in both 1984 and 1988. In the 1990s, culture warriors like Pat Buchanan and the Rev. Pat Robertson joined Republican regulars such as Sens. Bob Dole and Phil Gramm. At this years’ CPAC13, Tea Party leaders and Tea Party-supported politicians will dominate the proceedings. The result is an agenda filled with bigots, conspiracy mongers, and publicity hounds. Consider the inclusion of...

    Imagine for a moment, if Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Patriots around this nation had listened to the radicalized left and liberal media pundits. What if they had done “what they were told” to not make noise, to not organize, to keep their passion for America’s future and potential demise to themselves? The American conservative comeback of 2010 would have been a “might have been” instead of a solid building block for reemerging American patriotism that the movement has become. Sarah Palin not only helped develop the new political conservative narrative for America, her heart and her soul is...
