    FLASH: Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Endorses Ted Cruz For President

    FLASH: Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Endorses Ted Cruz For President

    CHQ Staff | 2/1/2016

    Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin announced over the weekend that the SuperPAC associated with the largest national Tea Party organization in the country has endorsed Senator Ted Cruz to be the next president of the United States.

    “We seek a candidate who shares our values: personal freedom, economic freedom, and a debt-free future. On behalf of Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund and our supporters, I am proud to announce our endorsement forpresident of the United States: Senator Ted Cruz!”


    Key Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund activists from around the country joined Jenny Beth Martin on stage in Sioux City to endorse Senator Cruz.

    “I was asked a few weeks ago ‘what makes a great president?’ I want our next president to have clear, easily identifiable, conservative principles, which he has lived with for his entire life. I want our next president to be able to clearly communicate his principles to America. I want our next president to have an understanding of the ‘levers of government.’ He should demonstrate a history of creative, constitutional, and effective solutions that have furthered his principles; and I want to be assured that he will continue to do exactly what he said he would do. And finally, I want our next president’s actions and principles to be guided by a spiritual moral compass. I think that man is the man I voted for in this endorsement process; Senator Ted Cruz.” – Frank Racz, Fayetteville, NC


    “I have been a grassroots tea party activist for over 6 years, and I met Ted Cruz at a small event in Houston that several of our local groups held about four years ago when he was running against the establishment for Senate. He exuded a quiet confidence as I grilled him on why he was running and why I should support him. He told me he would visit with every grassroots group as he campaigned – and he did. He said Texas needed a Senator that would work for the people, and would stick to constitutionally conservative principles – and we did. He promised he would be that Senator, and we could trust him to do what he says – and we can. Over his four years in the Senate, he has fought for us on issues like repealing Obamacare and abolishing the IRS. I trust that Ted Cruz believes what he says and that he will do what he says! He has earned that trust from me, and he will earn it from all of you! I am honored and thrilled to be here in Iowa with the Tea Party Patriots to endorse Senator Ted Cruz to be the next President of the United States of America.” – Darcy Kahrhoff, Huntington Beach, CA


    “It was 6 years ago, almost to the day, that I had the privilege to meet Ted Cruz for the 1st time in January 2010. Ted had invited a dozen or so members of the more active Tea Party groups in Texas for an early pre-announcement of his intent to run for the United State Senate. At that time both of our Senators were as much ‘Washington Cartel’ as they make them. In that room we were all fierce watchdogs, not ready for a new politician willing to deal and get along.


    A couple of hours later, as we came out of that meeting, we all had sparkles in our eyes. The reaction was unanimous: ‘This is just too good to be true. Is this guy for real? If he is, we have found the most incredible gem we could ever have dreamed of.’ Well, during these last 6 years, because he first was my candidate, and then my Senator, I have watched him very closely, day after day. And yes, I can tell you now, we have not been disappointed. Ted is for real!


    He said what he was going to do, and he did what he said he would do. He has been the game changer in corrupt Washington, DC. Ted Cruz has been a fantastic Senator who made Texas proud! Ted Cruz will be the genuine and strong President our Country needs to become great again! I am proud to stand by Ted and endorse him! God Bless Iowa! Please show us the road!” – Suzanne Guggenheim, Corpus Christi, TX


    The Tea Party Patriots Citizen Fund endorsement of Senator Ted Cruz echoed and confirmed the endorsement of Ted Cruz posted by Judson Phillips, founder of Tea Party Nation.

    In a January 20 op-ed in The Washington Times Phillips argued that the only Republican presidential candidate Tea Party Movement supporters can trust is Senator Ted Cruz.

    Phillips pointed out that conservative voters had become more and more outraged in the second Bush term as Republicans abandoned all pretense of being the party of smaller government and fiscal sanity. Because no one was listening to real Americans, the tea party was born.


    In 2016, the same frustration is building again because the Republican Party still refuses to listen to its conservative base. That frustration has turned into much of the Donald Trump movement.


    The problem with Donald Trump is, said Phillips, he is a conservative when it suits his needs.


    Mr. Trump gave large amounts to Hillary Clinton on multiple occasions. He gave money to Democrat Harry Reid and Democrat Nancy Pelosi. He gave money to Democrat Rahm Emanuel, Barack Obama’s one time chief of staff and now Chicago mayor. He gave money to the Democratic congressional committee. He even gave money to disgraced former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner.


    Donald Trump also gave $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation.


    So with that history in mind, Judson Phillips asked, “Who do you trust to pick the next three Supreme Court justices?”


    In some of the most important cases the Supreme Court decided in the last few years, said Phillips, many of our rights were saved by one single “unelected lawyer.”


    Conservatives have to win the White House this year. Conservatives have to put someone in the White House who will put conservative justices on the Supreme Court as well as the rest of the federal judiciary.


    There is only one man conservatives can trust says Tea Party Nation founder and leader Judson Phillips, and that is Ted Cruz.

    Amnesty and the Tea Party's Libertarian Friends

    By Tina Trent

    After Eric Cantor’s defeat by newcomer Dave Brat, the New York Times ran a dozen articles and blog posts about the election. This flood of words tried to conceal the primary concern of voters in Cantor’s district: amnesty for illegal immigrants. One story did address amnesty and the election, but Times reporters mused at far greater length about anything and everything else.

    Such papering-over is to be expected of the Times, which does not wish to draw attention to the fact that most American citizens disagree with open-borders politics. Amnesty’s other cheerleaders also prioritize suppressing the public’s real views on legal and illegal immigration: this motley crew includes the Chamber of Commerce, La Raza, Grover Norquist, Barack Obama, the RNC, the DNC, and even powerful elements within the American Conservative Union.


    The Tea Party stands virtually alone in loudly opposing amnesty, and for doing so they are targeted with slurs like “nativist” and “racist.” While their views represent those of many, if not most Americans, the toxic label “racist” intimidates their potential allies from speaking out. This is why election results like the defeat of Cantor come as a surprise to the political establishment. It is also why silencing the Tea Party on immigration is a key ambition of pro-amnesty forces.


    Unfortunately, it is not the Chamber of Commerce or even RINOs that threaten to undermine the Tea Party’s courageous stance on immigration. That danger lies closer to home, in national libertarian groups. In particular, Americans for Prosperity and Freedomworks have been misleading the grassroots on amnesty. With a vote on immigration a strong possibility in coming weeks, as Erick Erickson warns in RedState, it is time to confront this deception, however unpleasant the confrontation may prove to be.


    The official line offered by AFP and Freedomworks is that they are “sitting out” the immigration debate. But there is no such thing as sitting out such a crucial issue. Worse, they aren’t really sitting it out. Behind the scenes and through other organizations, the primary donors to AFP and the primary thinkers at Freedomworks actually advocate for increased immigration and amnesty. When they say they are “sitting immigration out,” they are being dishonest.


    The Kochs, for example, are not just the founders of AFP: they are the founders of the most prominent right-of-center pro-amnesty think tank, CATO Institute. Through CATO, they subsidize the work of Alex Nowrasteh and others who argue that “unauthorized immigrants” do not strain the welfare system, social safety nets, or the job market. By speaking from the right, CATO plays a vital role in legitimating the bipartisan nature of the elitists’ push for ever-increasing immigration and amnesty.


    Within the beltway, the Kochs are not shy about using their money to support mass amnesty and open borders, not only by subsidizing CATO but also the open borders, pro-amnesty, libertarian magazine Reason. So why do they refuse to be consistent with AFP or at least make their real opinion clear to the hundreds of thousands of Tea Party activists who have volunteered with or donated money to AFP?


    The answer is obvious: many citizen activists would hesitate to work with AFP if they knew that the organization’s leaders are delivering one set of marching orders to the grassroots outside the beltway while underwriting pro-amnesty campaigns inside the beltway. And we wouldn’t work with AFP at all if it endorsed CATO’s immigration stance. So AFP plays us for fools and hopes we swallow the duplicitous claim that they’re just “sitting out” amnesty. But the duplicity goes deeper that that.

    I worked as an independent contractor with AFP in Florida during the 2012 election (I received approximately $1550 for honorariums and donated many more volunteer hours to AFP). AFP’s Florida key staff included several figures tied to Jeb Bush. Away from microphones, their attitude towards grassroots Tea Party activists, especially social conservatives, reflected the attitude of Bush and other RINOs, particularly on amnesty.

    Tea Party activists felt pressured to sit down and shut up about amnesty lest they be seen as racists. And at the crucial moment when Marco Rubio betrayed his promise to voters to oppose amnesty, AFP gave Rubio a prominent platform at their Defending the American Dream Summit. It was a slap in the face to every Florida activist who had volunteered his or her time for Rubio’s election based on his tape-recorded promise to not back amnesty.


    I know many Florida Tea Party activists who are deeply fed up with AFP’s immigration deception (not to mention their incessant fundraising and their insistence that they speak for grassroots groups who have no reciprocal voice in AFP’s platform – but those are issues for another day). But with jobs and families to support, few citizen activists feel they can stand up to AFP. Some also feel pressure to stay quiet lest they attract attention from AFP’s belligerent legal team.


    The consequence of AFP’s meddling is a weakened Tea Party voice against illegal immigration. Freedomworks is more responsive and respectful towards the grassroots, but they too are using the excuse of “sitting amnesty out.”


    Why do we put up with this? With few friends and many enemies, it is understandable that Tea Party activists wish to trust their political allies. But amnesty and border control aren’t like other political issues. They represent an existential crisis that threatens to overwhelm every other cause, from repealing Obamacare to protecting gun rights to returning local control to the school curriculum and reducing national debt.


    It will take years of legislative negotiation to end Obamacare and rein in the federal Departments of Education and Justice. But if we don’t secure the border first and prevent amnesty, Florida will soon become a permanent blue state with Georgia close behind. Even Texas will follow in fewer years than anyone wants to contemplate. After that, there is zero demographic chance of Republicans ever gaining the House, Senate, or Presidency again.


    If we don’t put all our current energy into closing the border and defeating amnesty legislation, none of our other fights will matter. We cannot allow even our best political friends to exert control over our position on immigration and amnesty. We can’t let them whisper “racism,” for their sake as much as ours: the border crisis is only emboldening radicals’ demands that Americans censor any opposition to untrammelled illegal immigration. Soon, even voicing any desire for border control will be unacceptable political speech.


    What to do? We need to confront AFP and Freedomworks about their stance on immigration. We need to talk about the ways their “neutrality” claim undermines our anti-amnesty message and honestly address their collaboration with open-borders agitators.


    Essentially, we need to hold the libertarian nationals to the same standard to which we would hold any elected official. If a friend back home goes to Washington and double-crosses our platform, we impose consequences. The same must go for any national organization that partner with us. They are powerful groups, but we gave them that power. We can also take it away. The future of America literally depends on it.
