Loretta Lynch nomination coming up for a vote real soon

From Campaign For Liberty:

Loretta Lynch's nomination was just added to the Senate schedule for this week.

And according to Capitol Hill insiders who've seen the "official" whip count - Loretta Lynch's confirmation vote is expected to be one of the "closest Senate confirmation votes in recent history."

Already, C4L has faxed in over 135,000 petitions to the Senate.

Your voice is getting through and the pressure is working.

But if there's ever been a time to double down - it's NOW!

So please sign your emergency "Vote NO! on Lynch" Action Fax immediately if you haven't yet done so.

As we've called her, the "Queen" of civil asset theft, Loretta Lynch spent her time as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York seizing nearly a BILLION dollars worth of private property under the guise of civil asset theft in 2013 alone...

She's also an unapologetic enforcer of gun restrictions and a staunch defender of unconstitutional NSA spying.

If confirmed as U.S. Attorney General there's no doubt in my mind Lynch will work to massively expand these programs virtually allowing an unrestrained Executive authority to run rampant.

But a critical vote on Lynch is expected as soon as Thursday.

That's why your action today is so vital!

Can I count on you to IMMEDIATELY sign your emergency "Vote NO! on Lynch" Action Fax?

Let me explain why Loretta Lynch as Attorney General would be so dangerous:

Referred to as "The General," the AG commands an army of 90,000 FBI agents, investigators, lawyers, pilots, clerks, even troops!

With over 4,000 federal criminal statutes to enforce, the Attorney General sets the tone for law enforcement throughout the country.

Now Loretta Lynch is just a few votes away from being appointed Attorney General - one of the most powerful positions in the country.

This is a dangerous time for opponents of civil asset theft, gun control, drone strikes, and unrestrained Executive authority . . .

That's why its critical you sign your emergency "Vote NO! on Lynch" Action Fax right away.

Your emergency Action Fax is a crucial component in applying enough pressure on targeted legislators, urging them to oppose Loretta Lynch's nomination.

But this mobilization program in the coming days won't be cheap, or easy.

That's why after you sign your "Vote NO! on Lynch" Action Fax, I ask you to consider chipping in with an immediate contribution of $10 or more.

Your immediate contribution will allow us to contact up to 600,000 folks and generate roughly 30,000 more petitions.

$10 will pay to contact up to 6,250 people. $20 reaches 12,500. And so on.

So please chip in whatever you can afford to help expand our program and defeat Loretta Lynch's nomination for Attorney General.

Please do not wait a critical vote could come tomorrow!

In Liberty,

John Tate
President

P.S. A CRITICAL vote on Loretta Lynch's nomination as Attorney General could happen in the Senate as soon as Thursday.

Please sign your emergency "Vote NO! on Lynch" Action Fax to your U.S. Senators today!

Then, please consider immediately chipping in $10 to help Campaign for Liberty reach out to more Americans about defeating Loretta Lynch's nomination.

Protect your liberties tell Congress not reauthorize Section 215 of the Patriot Act

From Demand Progress:

Congress is back in Washington after a two-week recess, and reauthorization of the Patriot Act is on the agenda.

According to House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the chamber could take up three key sections of the Patriot Act set to expire in June as early as this month1 — including Section 215, which the NSA has exploited to claim unprecedented power to conduct bulk collection of millions of phone calls every single day.

Legislators have yet to settle on their plans, and intelligence agencies are gearing up to make sure these provisions are reauthorized. That's why we need to get loud, and now.

Can you make a quick phone call to your representative and ask that they vote against reauthorizing Section 215 of the Patriot Act?

We can't blame you if you're feeling a sudden sense of déjà vu. While the most questionable provisions of the Patriot Act, like Section 215, were only initially authorized for a fixed number of years, Congress has reauthorized them every single time since passage of the Patriot Act in 2001.

Mass surveillance has violated the privacy of millions of innocent Americans who have never even been suspected or accused of a crime. And according to the White House's own Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, it hasn't made a difference in making us safer.2

Click here to call and tell your representative: continued NSA mass surveillance is a nonstarter. Say no to Section 215 today!

It's super easy — just enter your phone number and zip code, and we'll patch you through to your member of Congress. And if you have an extra moment, just press * instead of hanging up and we’ll connect you to important Judiciary Committee members, who oversee surveillance legislation.

This is a defining moment for our civil liberties, and these phone calls to Congress can really make a difference. Can you call your representative today?

Thanks for taking action.

—David, Daniel, Mark, Sara and the rest of the Demand Progress team

Watch a video and support Rand Paul



From Senator Rand Paul:

Hillary Clinton has announced she is running for President…

… And I'm the biggest threat to the coronation she has planned!

New polls show I'm leading her in key swing states like Colorado, Iowa, and Pennsylvania.

That makes me the Republican best positioned to defeat her.

But while she is making her announcement, I need your help to make a statement of my own.

I'm counting on you to chip in and help my campaign's emergency "Stand With Rand®: Defeat Hillary" Money Bomb reach our goal of $2 million by the deadline.

Your support will help my campaign run our new ad in the early nominating states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada to spread the message that Hillary Clinton would be a disaster for America and I am the Republican who can beat her.

You see, my rallying cry of defeating the Washington machine and taking our country back is catching fire across America.

I'm in this race to finally repeal ObamaCare, protect religious liberty, pass the largest tax cut in American history so more of your money stays in your pockets instead of fueling a bloated government, and impose term limits on career politicians.

My message of Liberty and a rock-solid conservative voting record makes me the best candidate to sell our values to all corners of America.

Defending ALL of the Bill of Rights has brought crowds to their feet from New Hampshire to Berkley, California.

But the stronger my campaign grows, the nastier the smears the media hurls my way.

They've told lies about my interviews, twisted my words, and resorted to every trick in the book to try and stop my momentum.

Hillary Clinton's pals in the left-wing press are trying to take me out!

Conservatives can't allow media smears to serve up a Big Government establishment candidate who will be chewed up by Hillary Clinton's BILLION DOLLAR attack machine.

So I am counting on your help to fight back.

Please chip in a contribution to my campaign's emergency "Stand With Rand®: Defeat Hillary" Money Bomb right away.

Reaching our $2 million goal by Monday will help my campaign fight back against the media's attacks by airing our new ad in the Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada.

Hillary Clinton would be a disaster for America.

The polls prove I am the Republican best positioned to defeat her, so her allies in the liberal media are coming after me with both guns blazing.

I won't wilt under their attacks and I'll fight for our values, but I need your help to get my message to as many voters as possible.

So please chip in to my campaign's emergency "Stand With Rand®: Defeat Hillary" Money Bomb and make an announcement of your own…

You are joining the movement to take our country back!

In Liberty,

Rand Paul

It's official

The evil witch is running. Hillary Clinton has just announced her intention to run for President of the United States. We've been preparing for this for a long time. Allied with men's rights groups and conservative groups like Stop Hillary PAC we stand a good chance of defeating her in 2016. We've been preparing and now the enemy will come out fighting. I suggest we do the same only be better at it. The only media sources that will stand up to the Clintons are Fox,Rush with other conservative political talkshow hosts and yours truly. With the rest it is going to be a Clinton lovefest. With the rest of the media it is going to be how Hillary can walk on water and how the Republican challenger is actually the devil. So until November 2016 we are going to bombarded with these messages. Get used to it. But I'm going to fight them all the way:Hillary to Announce in Minutes,A breakdown of every Hillary scandal and HIllary's top aide under investigation. Join with me.

Support the candidate of the people

From Stand With Rand:

My campaign staff handed me a stack of new press reports a mile high...

One headline from a Fox News article perfectly sums up everything I'm facing right now:

"UGLY EARLY: PAUL'S ENTRY SETS OFF FIRST ROUND OF ATTACKS."

And that's because the media sees polls showing me as the candidate best positioned to beat Hillary Clinton.

I don't have time to mince words.

The first few days of any campaign are virtually always the most important.

So can I please count on your most generous gift right now to my campaign's Stand With Rand Money Bomb to help us reach our new goal of $1.5 million?

Even if you've already given, but can afford to chip in a little more, please do so.

If you haven't given, please be as generous as you can!

The truth is, taking on the Washington machine isn't going to be easy.

There are plenty of candidates in BOTH parties who want to keep taxing and spending like there's no tomorrow until every last shred of American wealth is wiped out.

They'll do anything to defend the Big Government status quo.

I'm afraid they view you and me as their number-one threat.

You see I'm running on a strong constitutional conservative platform, pushing bold reforms our country desperately needs, including:

>>> Passing term-limits to end career politicians' iron grip on our government;

>>> Forcing Congress to actually read the bills they vote on — and delay legislation one day for every 20 pages of language before passage to help eliminate cronyism and insider funny business;

>>> Overhauling our tax code and cutting spending to get government out of the way, unleash prosperity and tackle our $18.1 TRILLION debt;

>>> Auditing the Fed and ending the "print-now, ask-questions-later" policies that cause destructive boom-bust economic cycles;

>>> Stopping unconstitutional spying on American citizens that has resulted in our federal government collecting BILLIONS of innocent Americans' phone records, texts, emails and Internet searches every day.

Nothing worth doing is ever easy.

I believe saving our country is worth whatever attacks and smears they throw at me.

I'm a fighter.

Those who have forced our nation to the brink are going to find that out first hand when the time comes.

But I need you in my corner...

Not next week, not next month, but NOW.

The first few days of any campaign are always so critical. Some even say a $1 contribution now is worth $3 later on!

Please give as generously as you can right away!

I'm counting on you to please join with hundreds of thousands of patriots just like you from all over the country to "Stand With Rand!"

In Liberty,

Rand Paul


Thank you,Senator Rand Paul for throwing your hat into the ring. I have looked forward to the day you would enter the race. Someone has to undo the damage done to our country by the Obama Regime. Now with Obama's illegitimate mother,Hitlery Clingon,on the brink on making an official announcement now would be a good time to show Hitlery whom she is up against.That is a Statesman of the People and champion defender of the United States Constitution and the Bill Of Rights. The son of a visionary whom is a visionary himself. A man of all the people not just some of the people. A Republican who reached out to non-caucasian communities and told them the American dream and all the rights that come with it are theirs as well. Join with Rand Paul to restore liberty and make our country strong again.

Oppose forced unionism

From The National Right To Work Committee:

Please complete your 2015 Membership Ballot immediately.

It’s vital that you do so at once.

You see, every year your National Right to Work Committee surveys its members to make sure our programs line up with your priorities.

This year, with Obama appointees at the Federal Election Commission (FEC) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) emboldened to use any bureaucratic weapon in their arsenal to shut down your National Right to Work Committee, your participation is more important than ever.

When I last wrote to you warning of the threat posed by the Obama FEC and IRS, the response from Committee members was an overwhelming: "Fight On!"

As I explained, the FEC and IRS union boss water-carriers could bury your Right to Work Committee under a mountain of harassing subpoenas over our efforts to inform opponents of forced-unionism which Senators and Congressmen support Right to Work . . .

. . . And which ones don’t.

In the past, Big Labor’s cronies at the FEC have concocted rules which refuse to recognize that you are a "real" member of the National Right to Work Committee.

They have repeatedly insisted that you aren’t entitled to the same rights under the U.S. Constitution accorded to members of other organizations.

From what my attorneys tell me, the Committee’s position will be strongest if as many members as possible certify each year that they currently consider themselves to be members of the National Right to Work Committee.

As you know, the FEC bureaucracy attacked the Committee for exposing corruption involving candidates for federal office and top-level union officials.

That’s why your 2015 Membership Ballot -- demonstrating that we do have members -- may be essential in fighting off any retaliatory legal challenges to our membership.

Can you please take a few minutes to complete your 2015 Membership Ballot?

Completing your Membership Ballot is also very important for another reason.

In the next few weeks, I face some big decisions and I need your advice.

As you well know, in recent years, you and I have fought many battles with forced-unionism advocates in state legislatures and in Congress.

Right to Work supporters in Indiana and Michigan overcame Big Labor’s forced-dues-fueled leviathan and passed Right to Work laws, restoring to workers in these states the right to earn a living without having to pay dues and fees to a union boss.

And in Wisconsin, Big Labor took a huge hit when the state become America's 25th Right to Work state.

Then just think about the national battles you and I have had with Big Labor in the last several years.

Time and again, Card Check Forced-Unionism -- Big Labor’s favorite tool to corral workers into dues-paying ranks -- has reared its ugly head in Congress and in bureaucratic rule-making.

And let’s not forget the efforts of Right to Work members to force roll-call votes in the U.S. House and Senate on our National Right to Work Act.

Through petitions and postcards, phone calls, e-mails and letters to their Congressmen and Senators, opponents of forced-unionism have fought Big Labor’s forced-dues power.

Then in recent election years, you and folks like you mobilized a Right to Work citizen army to turn up the heat on candidates before the elections, demanding they pledge total opposition to forced-unionism.

And just look at what happened last year . . .

. . . Eight new pro-Right to Work Senators replaced forced-dues advocates, some of whom represented Big Labor’s interests for decades.

Now it’s up to you and me to build on our successes and move forward with the plan to put every member of Congress on record for or against compulsory unionism.

Unfortunately, as I try to budget for 2015, your National Right to Work Committee accounts have been drained -- first from our efforts to secure roll-call votes on the National Right to Work Act and then from last year’s massive 2014 Issue Education and Mobilization Program.

So I need your advice on allocating the Committee’s funds.

Should I emphasize a campaign for federal legislation rolling back Big Labor’s forced-unionism power in Congress?

Or should protecting and advancing Right to Work in the states be top priority?

Or should your Committee try to fight both nationally and on the state level?

Let me explain my dilemma.

With Right to Work gains in both the U.S. House and Senate, now is the time to put every member of Congress on record on the forced-unionism issue by forcing a roll-call vote in both Houses of Congress on the National Right to Work Act.

As you know, a National Right to Work law would mean that no worker could be forced to join or pay dues to a labor union just to get or keep a job.

And just getting a roll-call vote would be a win/win scenario for opponents of compulsory unionism.

After all, every time in the past five decades that Big Labor’s pet politicians have been exposed to the nearly 80% of Americans who think forced union dues are just plain wrong, they have gone down in flames at the ballot box.

And 2016 could be an even worse year for forced-dues advocates than 2014.

That’s why I believe you and I must do everything we can to FORCE Congress to go on record for or against the National Right to Work Act.

But this fight won’t be easy -- or cheap.

So I’m counting on your support, and your advice.

You see, in addition to battles in Congress, Right to Work supporters face some tough challenges as well as tremendous opportunities on the state level.

In addition to protecting Right to Work laws in Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Iowa and Nevada, now is the time to use our momentum to extend Right to Work to other states like Kentucky, Montana, New Mexico, New Hampshire and Maine, as well as in a host of other states where the political climate is ripe for freeing workers from the shackles of forced-unionism.

The fact is, after years of hard work, two states, Indiana and Michigan, became Right to Work states in 2012 -- something that hasn’t happened since 1954!

If two states deep in the heart of the union boss dominated Rust Belt can pass Right to Work, I’m confident other states can as well.

So, should I emphasize a federal campaign, concentrating on forcing a roll-call vote on the National Right to Work Act?

Or should going on offense to pass new state Right to Work laws be our top priority?

Or should the Committee try to fight both nationally and on the state level?

Now, I’m sure you agree that it’s vital you and I do everything we can to put all members of Congress on record for or against forced-unionism.

So, if you think our federal legislative program should take priority, mark "FEDERAL LEGISLATION" on your Membership Ballot.

But before you do, give some thought to what’s at stake in the state legislatures.

Shouldn’t you and I strike while the iron is hot in states where it may be possible to pass Right to Work laws?

But we can’t leave current Right to Work states undefended in order to gain new ones.

So should defending state Right to Work laws and working to end forced-unionism in promising states be a top priority?

If you think so, mark "STATE LEGISLATION" on your ballot.

I’m sure you can see why I’m torn . . .

. . . And why I’m writing to ask you for your advice -- and, I hope, for your increased financial support.

Unless I can generate a major influx of funds at the beginning of this year, I will be forced to cut back on both federal and state legislative programs.

The fact is, with the tremendous opportunities you and I have in the current political climate, abandoning the field now would be heartbreaking.

With 11 million American workers shouldering Big Labor’s yoke, you and I cannot give up the fight now.

So can I count on you to chip in with a contribution NOW equal to or even larger than $10?

Thanks to the Committee’s 2014 Issue Education and Mobilization Program, you and I are now closer than ever to forcing votes on -- and ultimately passing -- a National Right to Work Law to free workers nationwide from the shackles of compulsory unionism.

That’s why I hope I can count on you to reach deep and make a contribution large enough for us to keep fighting in Congress and the state legislatures.

And why I hope you’ll consider chipping in with a generous contribution of $10, $20, or at least $30.

But whatever you can afford, please send it right away so I’ll know how to budget for the coming year.

Your advice and support are critical, so please submit your 2015 Membership Ballot as soon as possible. The Board of Directors and I anxiously await your reply.

Sincerely,

Mark Mix
President

P.S. Your completed 2015 Membership Ballot may be essential in a court battle to protect the rights of members like you.

I need to hear from 100% of our membership. Please act today.

Along with your ballot, please chip in with a generous contribution of $10, $20, or at least $30. Without your support right now, you and I may miss a real opportunity to take the fight directly to Big Labor.

So, please sign your Membership Ballot with your contribution today.

Big Cable and ISP's sue FCC over Net Neutrality

From Demand Progress:

BREAKING NEWS: The telecommunications industry just sued the FCC to kill Net Neutrality.1

Just weeks ago, the FCC issued a historic decision preserving Net Neutrality. But two new lawsuits filed by the big cable and Internet Service Providers are trying to overturn the whole thing.

With the amount of money corporations like Verizon and AT&T can spend on lawyers, this is going to be a huge fight. And to win, we need to make sure the public is making our voices heard in support of the FCC.

Will you chip in $5 to help fight back against this lawsuit and save Net Neutrality?

Yes, I'll chip in $5 to help save Net Neutrality.

They've given millions to politicians. They've spent millions more on lobbyists. And now they've hired an army of lawyers to accomplish what they haven't been able to do so far: kill Net Neutrality.

Why are they fighting this so hard? Because they want to give preferential treatment to big corporations and dump the rest of us into an Internet slow lane—all so they can jack up their already sky-high profits.

The scary thing is that they've had success blocking Net Neutrality in the courts before. Previous efforts by the FCC to protect Net Neutrality have been blocked by the cable industry's lawyers.

So it's not enough to let goverment lawyers fight this on their own. We need to make sure the public is speaking out too.

We've come too far to let Net Neutrality get killed by an army of corporate lawyers. Will you chip in $5 to help fight back?

Yes, I'll chip in $5 to save Net Neutrality.

Thanks.
