November 03, 2014

ATLANTA, Ga. – The Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund (TPPCF) will send a robo-call featuring Dr. Milton Wolf to 252,000 Kansas GOP households today, on the eve of what could be a game-changing election. “With so much on the line, conservatives are showing yet again that we’re team players,” said TPPCF Chairman Jenny Beth Martin. “We’re honored that Dr. Wolf is helping us send out this appeal; he knows the only way to check the radical Obama agenda is to fire Harry Reid.”

In fact, the current Majority Leader is part of Dr. Wolf’s wry appeal. “Do the politicians deserve your vote? Maybe not, but you deserve to see Barack Obama cry when we Republicans work together to send Democrats like Harry Reid packing.”

Pryor’s Amnesty Vote Transparent

September 25, 2014 Senator casts  ‘sham’ vote to fool Arkansasans at election time, Martin says

ATLANTA, Ga. – After Democrat Sen. Mark Pryor’s phony amnesty vote last week, the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund (TPPCF) warned Natural State voters not to be fooled. “Sen. Pryor’s vote was cast as nothing more than a campaign trail talking point,” TPPCF Chairman Jenny Beth Martin said. “He only voted ‘aye’ when he knew the amendment would fail.”

Martin referred to a procedural amendment offered by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) that, had it passed by a simple majority, would make it possible to dismantle President Obama’s “DACA” program and begin deporting illegal aliens. The amendment failed on a 50-50 vote. “But as the Politico article points out, Sen. Pryor only stands for American sovereignty when it serves his own political interest,” Martin said. “The State of Arkansas will be able to see right through Mark Pryor’s sham.”

Mary Landrieu and the Fake Amnesty Vote

September 24, 2014 Flailing, bogus appeal won’t fool Louisianans at election time, Martin says

ATLANTA, Ga. – After Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu’s phony amnesty vote last week, the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund (TPPCF) warned Louisiana voters not to be fooled. “Sen. Landrieu’s vote is as phony as it is transparent,” TPPCF Chairman Jenny Beth Martin said. “She only voted ‘aye’ when she knew the amendment would fail.”

Martin referred to a procedural amendment offered by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) that, had it passed by a simple majority, would make it possible to dismantle President Obama’s “DACA” program and begin deporting illegal aliens. The amendment failed on a 50-50 vote. “But as the Politico article points out, Sen. Landrieu only supports the concept of an enforceable, sovereign border when she knows the legislation won’t pass,” Martin said. “One is hard-pressed to think of a harder slap to the face of patriotic, taxpaying Louisianans.”

ATLANTA, Ga. – After Democrat Sen. Kay Hagan’s phony amnesty vote last week, the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund (TPPCF) warned Tar Heel State voters not to be fooled. “Sen. Hagan’s vote is as phony as it is transparent,” TPPCF Chairman Jenny Beth Martin said. “She only voted ‘aye’ when she knew the amendment would fail.”

Martin referred to a procedural amendment offered by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) that, had it passed by a simple majority, would make it possible to dismantle President Obama’s “DACA” program and begin deporting illegal aliens. The amendment failed on a 50-50 vote. “But as the Politico article points out, Sen. Hagan only stands for American sovereignty when the deck is stacked for amnesty,” Martin said. “And even then, she had to bow and scrape to Harry Reid and get his permission to cast a sham sovereignty vote. North Carolinians will see right through this.”

Statement on Eric Cantor’s move to Moelis investment bank

September 03, 2014

The news that former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has taken a job on Wall Street comes as little surprise.  The following statement can be attributed to Kevin Broughton, National Communications Director for the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund:

“After Dave Brat’s upset victory in June, many analysts accused Eric Cantor of paying more attention to Wall Street than to the people of Virginia’s 7th District.  He certainly didn’t waste any time validating that theory.”
