Let's defeat Harry Reid

From Rand PAC:

Can America endure two more years of President Obama's disastrous policies?

I'm not sure, and I'm not willing to find out.

If America is to halt Obama's Big Government agenda in its tracks, you and I must shut down his biggest cheerleader, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

That starts with conservatives taking control of the Senate this November.

And the October 23rd "Fire Harry Reid" Money Bomb deadline is conservatives' last chance to make sure our movement can fight back against the Democrats' onslaught of negative attacks.

That's why RANDPAC must raise $250,000 by October 23rd so we can budget our plans for the final 10 days of the campaign.

I'd hate to wake up the day after the smoke clears from the 2014 elections only to find that Harry Reid will still be calling the shots as the United States Senate's Majority Leader for the next two years.

I know many so-called "experts" claim the political environment is turning more toxic for Big Government Democrats by the day. I know the ObamaCare fiasco has many Senate Democrats scared stiff.

In fact, one House Democrat recently admitted he's worried the situation is about to "hit the fan!"

But I'm not taking anything for granted. With ObamaCare threatening every last shred of economic growth and our national debt skyrocketing to over $17.5 TRILLION, I think there's just too much at stake.

And without your IMMEDIATE action, two more years of President Obama armed with Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader could be exactly what we'll get.

After eight years of taxing-and-spending, I'm ready to bring Harry Reid's reign as Senate Majority Leader to a hard-and-fast end. And I'm asking you to help me make it happen.

If you stand with me, won’t you please chip in a contribution to RANDPAC's "Fire Harry Reid" Money Bomb?

I believe showing momentum could be a big boost not only to me, but to other liberty-minded Republicans running around the country.

You see, stopping President Obama's Big Government, tax-and-spend agenda for the next two years depends on stripping Harry Reid of his position as Senate Majority Leader.

Which means conservatives must take over the Senate.

Today, I need to know you'll stand with RANDPAC.

If you agree, please chip in a contribution to RANDPAC's "Fire Harry Reid" Money Bomb and help pave the way to victory.

I want so badly to believe the political "experts" who point to President Obama's dismal 41% approval rating in a recent Washington Post/ABC News Poll and say November 2014 could be another tidal wave election like you and I saw in 2010.

But I've also seen a recent Rasmussen Poll that stated a clear majority of American citizens are disillusioned with members of both parties.

The American people aren't stupid.

They understand it's Big Government politicians in BOTH parties who have brought our nation to the brink.

That means you and I have some work to do.

I believe, as Ronald Reagan said, it's time for our party to "raise a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues . . ."

After all, Americans now understand where President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid stand.

They stand for ObamaCare – which is costing jobs, sending health insurance premiums skyrocketing and lowering the quality of American healthcare.

They stand for misguided "environmental" policies that have DOUBLED the price of a gallon of gas from $1.79 back in early 2009 to more than $3.65 today – despite a blooming energy boom in the United States!

They stand for collecting literally BILLIONS of phone and email records of American citizens every day.

Now, it's time for Americans to find out where you and I stand.

I believe the way to victory in 2014 isn't in mincing words and holding back.
It's not in charting out "pastel" positions cooked up by high-powered consultants in Washington, D.C.

It's by showing the American people that you and I are different by standing firm on Republican principles, including:

>>>LOWERING TAXES AND SPENDING. High taxes and out-of-control spending aren't solving our problems. They're the root cause!

>>>AUDITING THE FED. It's time to expose the Federal Reserve's secrecy and economic manipulation that lead to constant economic crises and dollar destruction;

>>>PROTECTING CIVIL LIBERTIES. Americans will not allow our federal government to run roughshod over our remaining freedoms in the name of "security." As Benjamin Franklin said, "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety;"

>>>REPEALING OBAMACARE. This $2.6 trillion disaster stands to wreck our economy. The national Republican Party can and must stand by all efforts to stop implementation at the state level;

>>>PROTECTING THE TENTH AMENDMENT. The national Republican Party should loudly stand with any state efforts to take back control over their respective jurisdictions under the Constitution of the United States;

>>>PROTECTING THE RIGHT TO LIFE, LIBERTY AND PROPERTY. We must work to stop infringements on our Second Amendment rights like the Feinstein Gun Ban, protect the unborn and end the TSA.

The American people are hungry for leadership.

And one thing is crystal clear . . .

They're NOT getting that under this administration.

Whether it's the IRS targeting conservative organizations, ObamaCare or the growing Benghazi scandal, it seems all you and I ever get is blame-shifting, finger-pointing and excuses.

Is it really any wonder the American people's trust in their government continues to hover around record lows?

The good news is, I believe that America's realization that Washington, D.C. can't solve all our problems is the first step toward a reawakening toward freedom.

For months now, I've been spreading a message of liberty and limited government. I even received a standing ovation at the notoriously liberal University of California-Berkeley!

Now, with your help, I believe we can dethrone Harry Reid as Majority Leader in 2014.

But the October 23rd deadline is our last chance before the mid-term elections to make a statement that conservatives are prepared to FIGHT BACK.

If you agree, I simply must be able to count on your immediate support.

There must be no waving the white flag this election year. PERIOD.

The American people have had enough surrendering.

They're ready for a Republican Party that will boldly and unashamedly FIGHT for the principles they hold so dear.

But I must be able to count on your generosity.

After all, there are so many races that could decide the balance of power this election year.

Not only that, but there are a massive number of open seats up for grabs as well.

These contests are always notoriously hard-fought.

With so many this election year – including in Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Dakota and West Virginia – you and I must prove that conservatives are determined to take back the Senate.

Any one of these races could decide whether or not Harry Reid holds onto his Senate Majority Leader position.

I'm more ready than ever to bring Senator Harry Reid's eight-year reign as Majority Leader to a hard-and-fast end this November.

But I'm afraid that can't happen without your most generous support to RANDPAC's "Fire Harry Reid" Money Bomb.

With your help, I can showcase that the American people's hunger for liberty is reaching critical mass as the elections near.

You and I can't afford to take anything for granted.

The October 23rd deadline is just 72 hours away.

I'm committed to doing everything I can to ensure victory in November. Today, I'm asking you to stand with me.

If you agree, please chip in a contribution to RANDPAC's "Fire Harry Reid" Money Bomb and help pave the way to victory as conservatives gear up to fire Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader.

In Liberty,
Rand Paul

Lois Lerner ducks a reporter's questions

Lois Lerner–the former IRS official at the heart of Tea Party targeting–is retired from the IRS. Despite being held in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify, she hasn’t been prosecuted. Yet after her long silence, her exclusive interview with Politico was anything but reticent and reserved. In it, Ms. Lerner said she did nothing wrong and considers herself the victim.

Ms. Lerner bristled at any suggestion she had anything to do with destroying emails, switching to texts, letting her own liberal views influence her treatment of Tea Party a_holes, crazies. etc. Yet in a curious turn of events, journalist and Crapitalism author Jason Mattera showed up in her nice Bethesda neighborhood to pepper her with questions. They included such zingers as “Do you feel bad about turning the government into a weapon to crush political dissent?”

This time, Ms. Lerner wasn’t flanked by lawyers and facing softball questions at Politico. And who can blame her for not wanting to answer these questions. So she scurried to a neighbor’s house and started knocking on the door, begging to be admitted. Ms. Lerner’s day got worse when her neighbors seemed to, well, ‘Take the Fifth’ about letting her in. She stood there on the porch, while Jason Mattera probes with barbs like, ‘it doesn’t feel good to be targeted does it?’

The husband came around front and Mattera said she was trying to get in to avoid answering questions. The husband didn’t want Ms. Lerner in the house either, so she heads for another neighbor’s. You can watch the video here, well, until the hard drive crashes:

OK, this may not be journalism’s finest hour, nor does it necessarily mean much that Ms. Lerner didn’t want to answer these questions. It may not even mean much that the neighbor has probably had enough, and didn’t want to be involved. That’s so no matter how much the neighbor may like Ms. Lerner, or her dogs for that matter.

I’m not saying that anyone wants to be hounded (excuse the pun), either. But being hounded and asked questions of this sort cannot be entirely unexpected and may not even be unfair, especially after Ms. Lerner’s exclusive interview with Politico. It all sounds a little like Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, based on the book by Judith Viorst. Just like Lois Lerner’s day, from the moment Alexander wakes up, everything goes wrong.

Gum in his hair, mishaps at breakfast, on the school bus, at school, and more. From lousy teachers that pick on Alexander, to no desert, a visit to the dentist, and getting punched by his brother, Alexander’s day is ruined. After school, the shoe store doesn’t have Alexander’s size in the cool sneakers, so naturally, Alexander’s mom buys horrible plain white ones, which Alexander refuses to wear. Stopping by his dad’s office, Alexander wrecks the xerox machine and the phone.

His dad even tells him not to pick him up at work anymore! At dinner, Alexander’s mom serves lima beans (ick), there’s kissing on TV , a bad bath, and railroad train pajamas Alexander hates. At each bad turn–and there are plenty–Alexander says he wants to move to Australia, presumably because it’s better there. The book ends when Alexander’s mother says everybody has bad days, even people in Australia.

So how is Alexander faring with critics? The New York Post says ‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’ is awfully mediocre. But we clearly all do have very bad days sometimes. Just think about these unexpected mishaps: There’s having your hard drive crash. Having your texts not saved. Having people question you when they have no right. There’s conservative a__holes and crazies voicing political speech that he Supreme Court bizarrely said was OK, but that really shouldn’t be. Just ask Eric Holder.

Want even more terrible, horrible, no good items? How about those rogue employees in Cincinnati doing things they shouldn’t. I’ll bet all those missing emails would prove once and for all that those confused rogue Cincinnatians did all the targeting non-biased and careful review with no help from the boss. Too bad the hard drive is gone destroyed buried not available despite best efforts. Maybe Alexander had something. Maybe moving to Australia wouldn’t be such a bad idea after all?


Like he said she should be hounded. She should pay. What kind of penalty is she paying living in a house like that in a nice neighborhood like that. That's not a penalty that is a reward. Lerner doesn't belong in a nice house like that. She deserves to languish in prison as Big Marge's sex toy. How many conservative groups was she going to persecute. How many people was she going to send to prison via her inquisition squads? She didn't like being targeted. Poor baby,doesn't feel good does it? Don't like it don't do it. Once Holder is out of office that would be the perfect time to go after Lerner. With Holder gone that may loosen her tongue and she may start singing like a canary.

Cut funding to the UN

From Council For Citizens Against Government Waste:

We just got word that as part of next year's spending plan Congress will continue pouring your tax money into the United Nations.

Please sign the National Petition ordering Congress to slash U.S. funding of this wasteful, bloated, anti-American bureaucracy. Washington's politicians need to hear from you right now.

The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste has been battling out-of-control spending and taxes since 1984. But nothing gets on our nerves more than the federal government wasting billions and billions of our tax dollars to prop up the UN.

This den of bureaucrats, crooks, dictators, and thieves doesn't deserve a single penny of your hard-earned money.

And yet, every year the politicians give in and fork over more and more American tax dollars.

Please sign our National Petition to Congress. Once again, Congress is going to send a giant check to the UN so that it can continue to bash America and undermine our interests.

We need to take a stand!

Just click here to sign. And then, forward this e-mail to everyone you know who is sick and tired of subsidizing this bloated and corrupt organization!

Right now Americans are paying $1.2 BILLION per year in DUES to the UN. We also pay $2.2 BILLION, or 28 percent, of the UN peacekeeping budget. Then there are the "voluntary payments" for special UN programs and funds. In one recent year, we gave the UN a record total of $7.7 BILLION.

America's taxpayers pay 25 percent of all UN expenses! And this is at a time when our own government is running a deficit of more than half a trillion dollars!

This nonsense must stop. Please sign your Petition now.

Here is what your money is paying for:

•The UN is planning to construct yet another spectacular building in New York at a cost of as much as $2 billion.

•Former UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali has admitted that "perhaps half of the UN workforce does nothing useful."

•The anti-American Marxist dictatorship in Venezuela is about to get a seat on the UN Security Council so it can join Russia and China in voting against the U.S.

•Third World dictators routinely fly to UN headquarters in New York to attack our great country and undermine our national interests.

•And UN-funded "peacekeeper" troops have abused the people they are supposed to be protecting and created a deadly and costly cholera epidemic in Haiti!

Congress must slash funding for the UN. American taxpayers should not be paying for this waste and abuse.

Sign your Petition right now. This is really important.

Congress needs to get an earful from the American people on this issue. Especially right now as our government continues to run massive deficits and the Obama Administration is cutting our own defense budget. Just click here.

And please, please ask everyone you know to sign this National Petition as well.

If we don't stand up now, Congress will continue funding the UN year after year.

That's how things work in Washington. And it's got to stop.

Sign your petition Tell the politicians to slash funding for the UN.

Thank you for all of your help.

Help the Senate Republicans defeat Harry Reid

From Senate Republicans:

After months of predicting GOP victory, the Washington Post’s statistical model now shows a 51 percent chance that the Democrats hang on.


The answer is simple – the Democrats are spending over $40 million more than the Republicans in battleground races. For weeks, our candidates have been holding on, despite a relentless barrage of negative ads – but we need your help now or it’s over.

I know that times are tough, that’s why we’re fighting so hard to bring new leadership that will turn things around. But, if we don’t rally together now – as a team – then we will lose as individuals.

Can we count on you?

Make Congress hold Eric Holder accountable

From Public Advocate:

We did it!

After months of Public Advocate's hard-hitting grassroots efforts, rogue U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced on Thursday he will be resigning from his post by the end of the year.

This is something your Public Advocate has been working very hard to see come about.

Over the past three years, Public Advocate has gone head-to-head with the Attorney General countless times.

We launched a petition against his solicitor general when the Department of Justice (DOJ) refused to defend the Defense of Marriage Act before the Supreme Court.

With Holder’s public blessing, the DOJ actually opposed U.S. Law passed by Congress!

Since that ruling, 19 states have seen their Real Marriage protections attacked and struck down in federal or state courts.

We also forced the FBI -- under Holder's watch -- to publicly cut ties with the dangerous Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

Our scathing subpoena against the SPLC threatened to expose details about their relationship with the Department of Justice.

It’s known that the DOJ hosted links to the SPLC on the government agency’s homepage and hired SPLC founder Morris Dees to train their attorneys...

...Even after baseless classification of Public Advocate as a "hate group" nearly got me killed.

But Public Advocate’s media and legal activities tarnished the image of the SPLC so much Holder couldn't risk any more blowback.

And most recently, we challenged Eric Holder's pattern of lawlessness by launching our national petition drive to impeach him as U.S. Attorney General!

Over the last six months, we collected and delivered nearly 25,000 petitions to Congress calling for Holder’s impeachment.

And we joined the National March for Marriage in D.C. where we spread the word of Holder's lawless war on Real Marriage and the Family.

Through email and the internet, we’ve reached millions of Americans with our call for his impeachment and the details of his misdeeds.

In just the last few weeks, we generated thousands of phone calls against Holder’s ally, Mark Herring -- Virginia’s Attorney General -- who is following Holder’s example.

Public Advocate's unrelenting demonstrations, videos, social network outreach and our petitions delivered to key members of Congress pushed Holder to his breaking point.

All this has lead to Holder's announcement of his resignation as soon as President Obama appoints a replacement!

But resigning his position does not absolve Holder of his crimes against the Constitution and Traditional Values.

He can run, but he can't hide from the pro-Family backlash.

The House of Representatives has promised to continue their contempt proceedings against Holder for his role in the "Fast and Furious" gun-running scandal.

And I will continue to push Congress to hold him accountable for his illegal undermining of the Defense of Marriage Act and state-level Real Marriage laws.

So if you haven't yet, please click here to sign your petition urging Congress to impeach Holder and destroy his anti-Marriage, anti-Family legal precedents.

Thank you so much for all your hard work towards making this possible.

Holder has been a staunch ally and advocate of the Homosexual Lobby since taking office, and losing him right before the 2014 elections is a hard blow to their agenda.

But Obama will certainly try to replace Holder with someone just as radical.

In fact, radical Leftist agitator and MSNBC commentator Rev. Al Sharpton has announced he will advise President Obama on the search for Holder's replacement.

That's why we will need all the support in the Senate we can get.

Conservative Senator Ted Cruz already expects this to be a very tough fight, riddled with dirty tactics from Obama's allies.

Public Advocate has been working all year to secure Pro-Family pledges from U.S. Senate candidates.

And this work will pay off as you and I gear up for the looming fight over Holder's replacement.

So while you and I should rejoice in this victory, we must always be ready for the next battle.

I know you will help me when the time comes.

Until then, thank you so much for your dedication and sacrifice.

For the Family,

President, Public Advocate of the U.S.

P.S. After months of Public Advocate's hard-hitting grassroots efforts, rogue U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced on Thursday he will be resigning from his post.

But resigning his position does not absolve Holder of his crimes against the Constitution and Traditional Values.

Please click here to sign your petition urging Congress to impeach Holder and destroy his anti-Marriage, anti-Family legal precedents.

And after you've signed, please chip in $10 or $20 to help Public Advocate gear up for the coming fight over Obama's next radical Attorney General nominee.

What we have seen from the Holder DOJ is the most corrupt department of the federal government ever. Corruption like this has not been seen for over 50 years. The last corrupt DOJ was under the watch of John N. Mitchell during the Richard Nixon presidency. Perhaps Holder is worse because Holder used not only racist tactics but used his race to attack critics and to shield him from scunity. His allowing New Black Party Members to intimidate white voters in Philidelphia in 2008 is a sure sign of his hostility toward those who are caucasian. On the other hand Holder wasted no time in getting involved in the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson,Missouri. Holder made accusations even before all the facts were in yet in the Philidelphia voter intimidation case he is presented with the fact fully investigated and does nothing. The reign of terror by Holder may be weakening but hopefully the long years of holding him accountable and finding him guilty of crimes against the American people destroy his chances for public office.

Support Senator Rand Paul

From Rand 2016:

There are just 4 days left until I have to submit my financial report.

President Obama, his allies in Congress and establishment politicians in both parties are waiting to see if you're still in my corner.

Polls for key Senate races across the country show control of the Senate is up for grabs.

The liberals in Washington are counting on their big money Super PACs to push Democrats across the finish line and preserve Harry Reid's status as Majority Leader.

So the September 30th reporting deadline is a key test of our movement's strength.

President Obama and Harry Reid are hoping I fail to turn in a strong report on September 30th.

Can I count on you to help me prove them wrong?

I'm committed to fighting President Obama's disastrous agenda and winning at the ballot box in 2014.

That means fighting for 100% repeal of ObamaCare, ending the NSA's unconstitutional spying and always standing for life.

But I'm just one Senator.

You see, the politicians in Washington take their cues from you.

If I can turn in an eye-popping report by the September 30th deadline, candidates across the country will see the American people are demanding Congress to protect the Bill of Rights and stand up to President Obama's reckless policies.

And while 2014 looks like a year where conservatives can score major victories, it's vital we capitalize on a promising political environment with action.

That's why I hope you'll agree to chip in a contribution before the September 30th deadline.

Whatever you can afford - $10 or $20 - will help me reach my goal and send a clear signal to the Washington elite that the grassroots is primed to fight and win in 2014.

And believe me, the political class in Washington would like nothing more than to write the obituary for conservatives this year.

Prove them wrong by standing in my corner and helping me to submit the strongest report possible by the September 30th deadline.

Help defeat Hillary and support her enemies

From Stop Hillary PAC:

I have a CRITICAL update for you: in the last 24 hours, Hillary Clinton has revealed a devastating campaign agenda to boost Democrats this November, keep Harry Reid and Barack Obama in charge of the Senate...and ultimately launch her official presidential campaign.

I knew it was coming, you knew it was coming, but now we must take action.

In only the last 3 days, Hillary has:

>>>Written personal emails to millions of the Democrats' best donors with the message, "This November, we have a clear choice - and a chance. It's a chance to elect Democrats to Congress who will fight for us every day." Hillary's plea for money is expected to raise as much as 10 million dollars.

>>>Installed herself to headline a major fundraiser for Florida Republican-turned-Democrat Charlie Crist -- setting herself up to be in another key presidential state.

>>>Dispatched her future first lady, Bill Clinton, to campaign for targeted Democrats' races all across the country - motivating Democrats to defeat conservative candidates this November.

>>>Just flew in from Iowa where she filled the financial coffers of endorsed Iowa Democratic candidates. NOTE: Control of the U.S. Senate will hinge on who wins the Senate race in Iowa, and Iowa is the first presidential primary. This is key to her campaign plan.

>>>AND she has teamed up with Nancy Pelosi -- working day and night to raise millions in San Francisco, charging couples $32,400 to rub elbows with America's most elite and liberal women.

I cannot let Hillary's campaign attacks and fundraising machine sink the mid-term elections. Her endorsed candidates will be a disaster for America, and cement the foundation for her campaign.

That's why I'm asking you to join Stop Hillary's Frontline Defender's program today.

Let me explain:

Frontline Defenders is a special program specifically chartered to stand up to Hillary everywhere she goes. That includes blocking the leftist politicians she endorses and funds.

Will you join our Frontline Defenders program to help Conservative candidates who are under attack from Bill and Hillary through their massive fundraising operation? A contribution of as much as $50 or as little as $5 will help us fight and win the most competitive races in the country.

The Stop Hillary Frontline Defenders program is dedicated to helping conservative candidates raise the necessary funds they need to defend themselves against Hillary's attacks.

***100% of your contribution will go to exposing Hillary's attacks on conservatives and developing more critical intel like what you saw above.

***Frontline Defenders will help fund candidates under attack from Hillary - through direct contributions and other means, Stop Hillary will directly counter the Clintons fundraising against conservative candidates.

***Your contribution will bring Stop Hillary's critical message to millions of voters in the mid-term election so they can identify Hillary Clinton endorsed candidates and their liberal, pro-Clinton record.

***With your help, Frontline Defenders will focus on 20 key districts across the county with targeted contact programs to educate, motivate and activate voters to defeat Hillary Clinton backed candidates.

But Stop Hillary's Frontline Defenders program can only fight as hard as our supporters will allow.

That is why I'm asking you to personally make a special gift to Stop Hillary's Frontline Defenders program today.

Can I count on you to make a gift of as much as $50 today?

Current Frontline Defenders have given as much as $500 to fight back against Hillary's candidates, and for others $5 is a sacrificial gift. No matter how generous you can afford to be, please give something because we cannot afford a Hillary presidency.

Her campaign agenda will be devastating to Republicans and Conservatives this election cycle if we can't mount an effective - and immediate - counter attack.

Stop Hillary's Frontline Defenders program is ready to strike.

Will you please make a special, urgent gift of $50 today? If you do, I promise Hillary won't be happy, and America will be better off.


Senator Ted Harvey (R)
Colorado State Senator
Co-Founder, Stop Hillary PAC

PS. I knew it was the last 24 hours Hillary Clinton has revealed a devastating campaign agenda to boost Democrats this November. Can I count on you to make a gift of as much as $50 today to help our Frontline Defenders program fight back?
