More good news from Public Advocate

From Public Advocate:

The wicked never rest.

And the radical Homosexual Lobby won't cease their endless agenda of undermining America's moral foundation and traditional Family values.

That's why you and I must remain vigilant to stop them.

With your help, Public Advocate has fought back in 2013.

While the Gay Bill of Special Rights passed the Senate, we're still standing strong against it in the House of Representatives.

We've also helped preserve traditional marriage in states like Pennsylvania by upholding traditional marriage laws.

And just last week, we stood up to the media's tyranny of "tolerance" as they attempted to silence Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson for making pro-Family statements.

But there is much more work to be done.

Across the country, states that continue to enforce traditional marriage laws are coming under attack.

President Obama continues to pack federal courts with radical judges.

And you can bet the Homosexual Lobby is working overtime to force passage of the Gay Bill of Special Rights in the House.

The need for Public Advocate's grassroots strength is great.

And along with that comes a great financial need as well.

That's why I sent my most reliable, dedicated, pro-Family, pro-Christian activists an important message a few days ago about Public Advocate's need to raise $81,909 by the end of the year.


So please, after you've read my important message below, consider giving a most generous gift to help Public Advocate's defense of America's morality.

For the Family,

HON. EUGENE DELGAUDIO
President, Public Advocate of the United States

Support Stop Hilary PAC;don't let her win

From Stop Hillary PAC:

This is our last shot.

11:59 PM tomorrow night is the end of the last fundraising deadline before Hillary makes her decision.

I desperately need you to chip in whatever you can afford to renew your support to Stop Hillary in 2014, and to bolster our chances to defeat Hillary next year, before she can become president.

Building on Barbara Walters' disgusting praise, Hillary's promised an announcement in 2014... and that could be just months away!

And our Dec. 31st disclosure will be the last report she sees before she makes her decision. We need to raise at least another $21,874 if we have a hope of swaying her announcement the right way.

If we appear weak, Ray, I'm afraid she'll see that as a sign she can run with little opposition. That means America is in for a nightmare with media darling Hillary Clinton on the ballot.

Please, do all you can before midnight tomorrow night,

-Ted

Support Senate Conservatives in getting the right people in office

From Senate Conservatives:

Last week, Karl Rove made a bold prediction for 2014. He said,

"Every Republican senator ... challenged in a primary as insufficiently conservative will win."

RINORove is so confident in the establishment's ability to stop the grassroots from nominating conservatives, he's predicting they will go undefeated in 2014.

This comes on the heels of the announcement by a top advisor to the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) that the party aims to defeat conservatives in "every primary" next year.

The establishment is talking tough because they believe their money advantage is big enough to put down conservative candidates.

We see it differently.

Republican voters are increasingly aware that many Republicans in Washington don't share their values. Also, there is a growing number of conservative activists who are donating to good candidates. They know they can elect leaders like Ted Cruz (R-TX) by combining their resources.

TAKE ACTION NOW

Let's prove Karl Rove and the Republican establishment wrong.

Please make a donation to these five U.S. Senate candidates today.

•Chris McDaniel (R-Mississippi)
•Matt Bevin (R-Kentucky)
•Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska)
•Rob Maness (R-Louisiana)
•Milton Wolf (R-Kansas)


McDaniel, Bevin, and Wolf are all challenging incumbent Republicans who have been in Washington for 30+ years and have voted for bailouts, more debt, and higher taxes. And Sasse and Maness are both being targeted by the establishment for being too conservative.

TIMING IS EVERYTHING

Most Americans who make political donations wait until the last few months before the general election. That's when the elections are in the news and when candidates are engaged in heavy advertising campaigns.

Unfortunately, by then the primary elections are over and the opportunity to nominate strong conservatives is long gone in most states. That is why it is so important that we support these candidates right now.

The 2014 Republican primary elections are only months away and now is our chance to promote leaders who will fight for our principles.

Senate Conservatives FundPlease donate to these five candidates before the reporting deadline at midnight tomorrow.

You can donate to multiple candidates with a single, online transaction, and the Senate Conservatives Fund pays all processing fees so the candidates receive 100% of your donations.

Your support now will help these candidates right when they need it most.

Thank you for not accepting the status quo and for being willing to fight for something better. America deserves leaders who deliver, not make excuses.

Best regards,

Matt Hoskins

Let's show the statists "what's next" by standing with Senator Mike Lee

From Senator Mike Lee:

After a year marked by major battles over the direction of our nation, the Washington ruling class is declaring victory. Meanwhile, some conservatives and limited government supporters are tired and discouraged and wondering if we can ever turn our country around.

To both the naysayers of this movement and to its supporters I have one thing to say: Watch what’s next!

I believe that “what’s next” for our nation is better days, bigger opportunities, and a brighter future - If we stand together today.

That’s why I’m asking you today to make a special year-end contribution of $25, $35, $50, $100, $250, $500, or more before the end of 2013.

We must be ready to hit the ground running in 2014 and take our message directly to the people.

Now, let me tell you “what’s next.” Balancing the budget will work. Reigning in spending will work. Reforming a tax-code which punishes American families will work. Achieving energy independence will work. Increasing access and affordability for higher education will work. Sending a new group of limited-government Senators and Representatives to Congress will work.

And all these will put America back to work!

Together we must have crucial conversations and frank dialogue about our future and the type of country we want for our children and grandchildren. I invite your voice, your insight, your support and your involvement in this process. Then we can stand together and say to all Americans, “Watch what’s next!” - Confident that our best days as a nation are ahead of us.

You see, it’s only because of your support and the support of thousands of our fellow patriots across the country that our movement made progress this past year.

But to keep advancing the cause of freedom and create “what’s next” for our nation, we must pick up the pace heading into the pivotal period of early 2014.

I need your help to continue fighting the rising tide of big government, preserving liberty and spreading our vision of “what’s next” for the American dream we will pass on to future generations.

There is no better time to renew your commitment to our cause than right now, on the threshold of a new and vitally important year. The only way to create “what’s next” is by stepping up now.

And that’s why I’m asking you to please give whatever you possibly can - today.

Make no mistake - 2014 will be the most consequential year ever for our movement. We MUST be prepared to make the most of it!

Will you stand with me as I fight to promote liberty and limited government?

Will you stand with me by making a special year-end contribution right now?

You know as well as I do that our work is only beginning. We can’t just sit back and watch “what’s next.” We must actively work together to create “what’s next!” And we need to do it now.

In order to go toe-to-toe with the big-government ruling class that currently controls Washington we must be organized, “strategized” and energized.

Let’s show Washington “what’s next!”

Our challenges are great, but together we can, we must, and we will restore the greatness of America and ensure that our “next” as a nation will be even better and brighter!

Here’s to “what’s next” and a great 2014!

The statists are going after Congressman Thomas Massie

From Congressman Thomas Massie:

If you support raising taxes, increasing spending and whittling away at Americans’ freedom, BOTH parties and their lobbyists will embrace you with open arms.

But if you DARE to stand up to the status quo like I have, you’ll be targeted for defeat!

That’s exactly what’s happening to me right now!

I’ll tell you more about exactly what I’m facing shortly.

But first, with the Fourth Quarter Fundraising Deadline for 2013 rapidly approaching on December 31, I must count on your support right away.

The truth is, I ran for the U.S. Congress in 2012, not to make a name for myself, but to make a difference.

Now, the Big Government establishment of BOTH parties is coming after me with everything they have to send me home in 2014.

In fact, their first recruit for a REPUBLICAN primary against me is a career lobbyist!

He’s spent his career pushing for HIGHER taxes and new Big Government regulations on everything from cars to mom and pop restaurants.

Without a strong fundraising quarter, I’m afraid it will only embolden the statist enemies I’ve made since my election.

And I can tell you, they’d love nothing more than to take me out for my strong stands, including:

***Cosponsoring legislation in the U.S. House to ban domestic drones;

***Joining fellow Patriots Sen. Mike Lee, Sen. Ted Cruz, and two-dozen brave Representatives in the only serious Congressional effort to defund ObamaCare;

***Standing up against domestic NSA spying, forcing the U.S. House to vote on legislation to stop this madness;

***Introducing legislation to repeal unconstitutional Gun Free School Zones;

***Voting “NAY” both times my colleagues suspended the debt ceiling so they could keep racking up debt;

***Turning down the Congressional pension and taxpayer-funded health benefits when I came to Congress;

***Being endorsed by Ron Paul, Rand Paul, Justin Amash, and Mike Lee in my 2012 Republican primary bid when I upset the establishment’s handpicked candidate who gave up her State House seat in what was supposed to be her “coronation” to the U.S. House;

***Leading the fight against the establishment’s Internet Sales Tax scheme with a thirty-minute speech to kill momentum for the bill in the House of Representatives.

I ran for Congress because I believe America can be saved.

I think liberty and freedom are worth standing up for.

I know you do too.

That’s why I must count on your support right away.

The Big Government crowd, after all, has the deep pockets.

They’ve been leeching off our taxpayer dollars for years.

And they have every intention of unloading their war chest to come after me.

That’s why it’s so critical you stand with me today.

You see, national political experts are all watching my campaign.

With a strong fundraising quarter, you and I can prove to the establishment my campaign has the backing of grassroots patriots all over our country . . .

And if you and I are serious about turning our country back from the brink, we simply MUST prove our side has the numbers and we’re willing to FIGHT!

If we don’t, it will only embolden those who are targeting the last of our Constitutional freedoms for outright elimination.

So please act right away.

Please agree to your most generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or $25 right away.

Of course, if you could possibly afford it, the maximum contribution under federal law is $2,600 -- or $5,200 per couple.

That’s a lot, I know.

All I ask is that you please just give whatever you can right away.

Thank you so much for your support.

Sincerely,

Thomas Massie

P.S. If you support raising taxes, increasing spending and whittling away at Americans’ freedom, BOTH parties and their lobbyists will embrace you with open arms.

If you DARE to stand up to the status quo like I have, you’ll be targeted for defeat!

That’s exactly what’s happening to me right now.

With the Fourth Quarter Fundraising Deadline rapidly approaching on December 31, I simply must count on your support right away!

Please agree to your most generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or $35 TODAY!

Happy New Year from Freedom Works

From Freedom Works:

Thank You for 2013

Did you check out everything patriots like you accomplished in 2013?

As a special gift to you, FreedomWorks compiled a list of SOME of your accomplishments this year.

In 2013, our movement made its voice heard on issues like ObamaCare, Common Core, Obama's war with Syria, NSA spying, government spending, and even more. And because we did that, YOU held your elected officials accountable.

It’s because of your hard work and dedication that the ObamaCare exchanges were stopped in 36 states. It’s because of you that our country is turning against Big Government’s spying apparatus. It’s because of you Obama’s war with Syria was stopped. And it’s because of your determination that Washington can't ignore us.

See all that you accomplished in 2013.

Click here

Our accomplishments this year speak for themselves. Government always goes to those who show up, and there is no question you've put the Progressives on the run.

In 2014, we have to double-down. ObamaCare is falling apart. A majority of Americans oppose it. On top of that, the American people are tired of NSA spying. Parents and teachers are learning how terrible Common Core standards are for schools. And FreedomWorks is already training thousands of activists across the country to be effective fighters for liberty.

With your dedication, 2014 will be twice as good as 2013!

And be sure to take a look back at what you did in 2013.

Replace ObamaCare in 2014

President Obama claims that conservatives don’t have a plan for replacing his health care takeover. He says we only criticize ObamaCare. Obama doesn’t think we have any solutions. He’s wrong.

Conservatives have plenty of free market reforms for our health care system.

Come next year, we will be presenting these ideas to lawmakers who want to replace the ObamaCare disaster with something that actually works.

And the best part is: you decide what that is!

No more lost insurance policies or malfunctioning websites – our country needs a health care system based on our traditional values.

You can help pick real health care reform for 2014.

Choose your Prescription for America now.

Get Ready for the New Year with FreedomWorks University

2014 is almost here. Do you know what your New Year’s resolution is?

How about boning up on your knowledge of economics, the Constitution, civil liberties, and American history?

You already know we accomplished a lot in 2013. We won because we aren’t just passionate about freedom, but because we're right!

But if we are going to beat the Progressives next year, our movement needs to stay informed. That’s where FreedomWorks University comes in. The courses are taught by world-class economists and historians. They'll give you the intellectual firepower you need to out-debate the liberals and show them why freedom works and big government fails.

Knowing is half the battle, and FreedomWorks University helps you win the fight for freedom. The courses are free of charge and easy to follow.

The Washington Establishment wants to shut us down in 2014. But as long as our ideals are true, we can never be beat.

Get ready for 2014 today and enroll in FreedomWorks University today!

Candidates who obey the will of the people

From Senate Conservatives:

Apparently it wasn't enough for Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to say conservatives should be "punched in the nose" or for the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) to say it plans to defeat conservatives in "every primary."

Now, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is pledging to spend $50 million against conservative U.S. Senate candidates in 2014.

The Chamber is pro-bailout, pro-stimulus, and pro-debt so it's no surprise they want to elect more liberal Republicans.

Let's show the crony capitalist we're ready for the fight by donating to these five conservative U.S. Senate candidates. •Matt Bevin (R-Kentucky)

•Chris McDaniel (R-Mississippi)
•Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska)
•Rob Maness (R-Louisiana)
•Milton Wolf (R-Kansas)

These candidates support all of our conservative policy goals. If they're elected, they will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Rand Paul (R-KY) in the fight for our freedoms.

We have set a goal of investing $2 million in these candidates before the end of the year. Will you help us do it?

Giving directly to conservative candidates is the most effective thing you can do to change the Senate and change Washington.

You don't have to be a large corporation or a mega donor to impact these races. If tens of thousands of freedom-loving Americans chip in a few dollars, we can level the financial playing field with the special interests in Washington.

Please help us drop the New Year's Eve ball on the establishment by making a generous donation to these candidates before the end of the year.

There's no better way to make the 2014 elections matter.

Best regards,

Matt Hoskins

Obama wants to silence his critics

From Radio America:

Barack Obama and his gang of radical liberals have launched an unprecedented campaign targeting conservative talk radio. Their goal? To shut down the public debate by silencing our most effective conservative spokespeople.

The left knows they can't compete with conservative arguments about the economy and foreign policy – the two most pressing issues facing America today. That's why they are trying to cut the mic's of our most effective spokespeople – including Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, Roger Hedgecock, Peter Schiff, and myself – and effectively tape our mouths shut. We can't let this happen ... so we're fighting back.

For over 25 years, Radio America has championed the ideas of limited government, individual liberty, free market economics, and traditional American values through compelling news, talk, and documentary programs. Our programs are heard by millions of Americans, through syndication to over 400 radio stations and distributed to websites such as World Net Daily and National Review Online.

But the radical left's war on conservative talk radio has put all this in jeopardy ... and that's why I'm writing you today.

Will you join me in supporting Radio America with a generous, tax-deductible contribution of $25, $50, $100, or more today? There is no limit to what you can give – every dollar you contribute can be written off for tax purposes – and it will make a huge difference.

I'm getting nervous.

You see, Obama needed only 3 liberal votes from the 5 member Federal Communications Commission to shut down conservative talk radio ... and he just got his votes. So this may truly be our final chance to save conservative talk radio.

To say time is of the essence is the understatement.

That's why I need you to follow this link to make a tax-deductible contribution of $25, $50, $100, or more to Radio America today.

With your support, you will not only help us save conservative radio today, but will also help us prepare for the future. We established the Comprehensive Journalism Internship program train and educate young journalists.

Too often, political reporters lack the background needed to accurately report both sides of political and economic stories. The Radio America program provides students with hands-on training– allowing them to get beneath the surface of events to probe and analyze the underlying causes of these and other political and economic problems. Students also have the opportunity to contribute to Radio America's Online News Bureau as reporters and writers, while also serving as associate producers for all broadcast radio operations on the network.

Click here to make a tax-deductible contribution of $25, $50, $100, or more today and help us provide the next generation of journalists the training they need to produce fair and accurate news reporting.

This is a war, and if the radicals win and succeed in shutting down talk radio in 2013, conservatives will be severely wounded. Truth will be silenced, and we will continue losing in the political arena. I'm counting on you to not let that happen.

Sincerely,

Laura Ingraham
Conservative Radio Host

P.S. Don't let the radical left force our great conservative commentators off the air. Join the fight and stand with Radio America! Follow this link to make a tax-deductible contribution of $25, $50, $100, or more today. Remember: there is no limit to what you can give today, and every dollar you contribute can be written off for tax purposes. Thanks — Laura

Merry Christmas from Public Advocate

From Public Advocate:

Today is Christmas and I wish you and your family, friends and neighbors God's blessing and peace.

God sent us his son and we all celebrate this wonderful day.

One year ago this Christmas Eve, Public Advocate filed a response to our legal tormentors, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), and in a similar vein, we have had to rush a legal brief again just today- right before Christmas, disproving a SPLC mis-truth.

I remember how I had to fight the American Civil Liberties Union -- going right to their Washington offices and camping out in front on the street -- to protest attacks on Christmas.

It just seems year round and around the clock the Homosexual Lobby and their allies are relentless.

But Washington is closed tighter than a drum right now. I am going to take time on Christmas to celebrate the birth of hope.

A lot has been accomplished thanks to you and this is Christmas Eve so I will not list them.

We, together, are the true hope of America.

And yesterday we completed the biggest and most urgent of our petition drives to defend Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty against the Homosexual Lobby.

I do not know how either of these challenges to me or our values will fare, but I will continue to trust in God and rely on your help to win or survive.

Merry Christmas!

And Season's Greetings to people of faith of all religions also.

Attacks on traditional values and the right to worship Godly values continues at a fast pace in today's America.

Just saying Merry Christmas and God Bless you marks you as "one of those Christian people".

I know we have many faiths promoting moral values, but we all agree and we all will fight for religious freedom.

To be Christian or to openly celebrate the birth of the Savior might bring a public abuse.

If you are an elected official you get editorials in major media outlets condemning you and your church, perhaps a lawsuit, or other complaint, an act of vandalism or in some recent cases threats and assault.

But it takes an effort to remember our values and we must all do our part to keep our traditions.

When the yelling and screaming from liberals stops for Christmas Day, most of America stands with us and knows anti-Christian God-haters and radical Homosexual activist protestors are in the distinct minority.

The freedom to practice your religion is in the U.S. Constitution. The attack on Christmas, Christians and Biblical values is an attack on all religion and our freedoms.

We have come together and we are standing together as never before and I am grateful that I can share this Christmas with you and know we --you and I-- have worked together for God's glory and to stand for what is right.

The late President Ronald Reagan gave his first Christmas address in 1981.

Ronald Reagan said, in part:


At this special time we renew our sense of wonder. We believe in the Divinity of the child born in Bethlehem that he was and is the promised Prince of Peace.

Yes, we have questioned why He who could perform miracles chose to come among us as a helpless babe but maybe that was His first miracle... His first great lesson that we should learn to care for one another.

We Americans have always tried to follow a higher light, a star if you will.

Trusting in God's help we have never lost our way. Let this be a time of re-dedication.

In a spirit of gratitude for what we have been able to achieve in the past year and looking forward to all that we hope to achieve in the years ahead... God Bless us every one.


There will come a time when all Americans will unite against the anti-Christian attacks and bring them to an end once and for all.

I hope you can renew our sense of wonder and that the nation returns to that sense of wonder once again. Amen.

Sincerely,

HON. EUGENE DELGAUDIO
President, Public Advocate of the U.S.

Obamacare navigators exposed



From The National League Of Taxpayers:

As if the whole idea of ObamaCare wasn’t a disaster on its face, now we see a problem with ObamaCare’s so-called “navigators.”

Recent undercover videos have caught “navigators” in Texas advising people to lie about their health and income in order to get the biggest taxpayer-funded subsidy possible.

“Don’t tell ‘em” that you smoke, a navigator says. “You lie because your premiums will be higher.”

When asked about unreported cash income, another suggests, “Don’t get yourself in trouble by declaring it now [. . .] Because that’s how they determine what your eligibility is for the grants.”

Another navigator chimes in, “Yeah, that didn’t happen,” and yet another agrees: “Never report it.”

Then at a separate Texas location, more navigators gave the same tips. One in particular summarized the whole message:

“I would just try to get that number as low as you can. It would help you qualify for more stuff as far as aid and stuff like that.”

So far, over 67 million dollars have gone to navigators nationwide.

But the fact is, even if everyone involved in ObamaCare were the salt of the earth, they would still be navigating people toward . . . well, ObamaCare.

Ultimately, ObamaCare is a web of sky-high prices, outlawed insurance, and regulations that will destroy jobs and take medical decisions away from patients and their doctors.

Sincerely,

Gary Paumen, President
National League of Taxpayers

Campaign For Liberty wants to know what is important to you

From Campaign For Liberty:

Campaign for Liberty's growth and success since its founding in 2008 have been nothing short of phenomenal.

But the key ingredient in their accomplishments is no secret.

Only dedicated grassroots activists like you make their efforts possible.

That's why it's critical you read the below letter from my father, Ron Paul, concerning C4L's plans for 2014.

With all the fights they are currently undertaking to defend our liberties - and with more must-wage battles looming on the horizon - Campaign for Liberty's staff faces some tough decisions.

Your help has never been needed more.

My allies and I are doing everything we can inside Congress to fight the Big Government politicians' out-of-control agenda.

But achieving victory will require Campaign for Liberty's second-to-none grassroots passion and pressure from the outside.

So please read my dad's letter and take action right away.

In Liberty,

Rand Paul
Rand Paul, MD
U.S. Senator (R-KY)

Campaign for Liberty

I don’t often do this. But today, I’m writing you with an urgent request.

After a series of discussions with Campaign for Liberty President John Tate, I am convinced this may well be the most important letter I’ve ever sent you as Chairman of Campaign for Liberty.

I already knew the picture was dire. I already knew Campaign for Liberty’s bank accounts were stretched thin fighting so many battles this year – including C4L’s all-out push for a Senate vote on Audit the Fed.

But now, 2014 is rapidly approaching.

With legislative fights still raging, and the critical 2014 election year right around the corner, these next twelve months could be a make or break year for you and me.

I’ll explain more about that shortly . . .

But please know I’m counting on your advice today.

As you'll see below, I've provided a link to your confidential 2014 Campaign for Liberty Membership Ballot. After you’re finished reading this letter, please give me your opinion right away.

Without your opinion – and your IMMEDIATE support – I’m afraid I could be forced to make deep cuts in Campaign for Liberty’s most important programs (even in some fights where I believe we could win).

Considering everything that’s at stake, you and I can’t let that happen.

This year, Campaign for Liberty made tremendous progress in its efforts to pass Audit the Fed legislation (S. 209/H.R. 24).

Thanks to my son, Senator Rand Paul, placing a hold on Janet Yellen — President Obama’s nominee to be the next Fed Chair — Audit the Fed is receiving unprecedented attention in the U.S. Senate.

Nearly 75% of the American people support Audit the Fed. As it becomes increasingly clear that, in the words of former Fed official Andrew Huszar, the Fed’s Quantitative Easing program is “the greatest backdoor Wall Street bailout of all time,” I expect that number to grow.

So we have a tremendous opportunity to advance this issue further than ever before.

But to do so, we must overcome an all-out blitz by big-spenders in D.C. and the special interests on Wall Street.

Just days after Senator Paul announced his hold, Campaign for Liberty staff was hearing reports that lobbyists were already turning up the heat on the Senate to defeat Audit the Fed.

The special interests are desperate to keep you from learning the details about the Fed’s bailouts of Wall Street, Big Banks, and even foreign governments and central banks.

The more support we gain, the more the special interests will push back. Campaign for Liberty must also overcome resistance from politicians in both parties who do not want to choose between siding with the majority of Americans or Wall Street insiders.

But when Campaign for Liberty launched its effort to Audit the Fed in 2009, no one thought it could get this far, and I am confident we can make even more progress if C4L can expand its programs.

So if you think Audit the Fed should be C4L’s top priority, please vote for “OPTION #1: PASS AUDIT THE FED” on your Membership Ballot.

But before you make that choice, consider the opportunity Campaign for Liberty has to strike at the foundation of ObamaCare.

Now that the American people are finally getting a taste of ObamaCare, the political dynamic over this legislation is completely changing.

In fact, roughly one-dozen Democrat United States Senators, worried stiff about their political careers, are beginning to push for “reform” of the bill.

It’s not hard to see why. The website issues look to be the least of President Obama’s problems.

Millions of Americans - those that haven’t seen outright cancellations - are watching their health insurance premiums skyrocket.

Businesses are cutting hours and freezing hiring. States that have spent millions setting up exchanges have enrolled only a handful of people.

This all means the fight over ObamaCare is NOT over. But this could be the most dangerous time in the entire law’s history.

The establishment of BOTH parties is going to want to pass quick fixes to paper over the law’s failings, kicking the can down the road until this law becomes even more entrenched.

Our movement can’t let that happen.

It’s up to liberty-minded Americans to keep pushing for nothing less than FULL repeal of the individual mandate.

If the mandate is repealed, the entire ObamaCare law will completely unravel.

So if fighting ObamaCare is your top priority, please vote for “OPTION #2: REPEAL THE INDIVIDUAL MANDATE” on your Membership Ballot.

But before you do, please consider what else we’re facing.

With the 2014 elections right around the corner, statists in BOTH parties know time is running out to pass their so-called “immigration reform” bill.

They’re flat-out desperate to pass a bill – any bill.

So for months now, Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senator John McCain (R-AZ) have been working behind the scenes to pave the way for the bill’s passage.

And as you and I both know, buried deep within BOTH parties’ “reform” bills lies a brand-new National ID database.

If passed, this dangerous scheme would require a new National ID card based on Social Security cards.

These cards would be tied to a national database containing biometric identification information, potentially even including fingerprints, retinal scans, or scans of veins on the back of your hands, which could easily be used for government tracking.

The database itself could include virtually any information the statists want, including gun ownership, race, religion, political views – and what you and I read, watch, and buy.

I don’t know about you, but this scheme sends shivers down my spine.

If you think fighting a new National ID scheme should be Campaign for Liberty’s top priority, please vote for “OPTION #3: STOP THE NATIONAL ID DATABASE” on your Membership Ballot.

If those were the only fights Campaign for Liberty had on its plate, I might not be so worried.

But there are two more fights that could be among the most important Campaign for Liberty has ever taken on.

It’s no secret statists in BOTH parties have declared an all-out WAR on our Fourth Amendment rights in recent years.

Amazingly, many Americans just tolerated it.

But as soon as revelations hit about NSA spying on American citizens - collecting BILLIONS of phone and email records – things quickly began changing.

Now most Americans understand, whether it’s intentional or not, the groundwork for the most technologically advanced police state in world history is being built all around us.

That’s why I believe Campaign for Liberty must continue to fight to restore our Fourth Amendment rights.

This year, Campaign for Liberty members mobilized in support of Representative Justin Amash’s amendment to roll back NSA spying. The amendment came closer to passing than anybody expected.

Since then, support for reining in the NSA has only grown, as new revelations about its spying have come to light. It looks like Congress will consider legislation dealing with the NSA next year.

However, some powerful Senators — such as Diane Feinstein and John McCain — are pushing legislation that actually ratifies the NSA’s unconstitutional spying!

Other legislation may take a step forward, but it does not do nearly enough to protect our Fourth Amendment rights.

If Campaign for Liberty does not mobilize in support of reining in the NSA, we may lose this opportunity to begin rolling back the surveillance state, as Congress will pass legislation either endorsing NSA spying or taking half-measures that don’t protect your right to be free of unconstitutional surveillance.

So if you think rolling back the surveillance state is most important, please vote for “OPTION #4: PROTECT OUR FOURTH AMENDMENT RIGHTS” on your Membership Ballot.

But please take a second or two to think about everything that’s at stake in 2014 before you do.

As you may remember – while it was a disaster for the Republican Party overall – 2012 was a banner year for our liberty movement.

Whether it was incredible state legislative wins all over the country, or even the election of new liberty movement heroes in the U.S. House and Senate, liberty movement victories were the one bright spot for the Republican Party.

So naturally, GOP establishment types are now welcoming more liberty movement, Tea Party candidates with open arms, right?

No.

For months now, news outlets have been screaming about an impending, establishment-led WAR on our allies.

Staunch friends like Congressmen Justin Amash (R-MI) and Thomas Massie (R-KY) are likely facing bruising primary fights.

Other solid candidates just in the beginning phases of their campaigns are already feeling the brunt of Big Government GOP attacks.

Their goal is simple.

Win or lose in November, they’re out to CRUSH you and me.

Should they succeed, they’re convinced it will be the death knell for our movement.

All I know is after all the smoky backroom deals we’ve seen from BOTH parties, as I said earlier, it could be a make or break year for you and me.

Not because you and I will EVER stop fighting for liberty.

But because if the statists triumph at the ballot box in 2014, I believe it will only embolden them to launch further assaults.

With your support, C4L can run a robust Candidate Survey Program to get out the truth on where candidates stand on the most critical issues of the day and hold politicians accountable.

So if you think exposing Big Government politicians is most important, please vote for “OPTION #5: FIGHT BACK IN 2014” on your Membership Ballot.

Of course, there’s one other option. It’s the option I hope and pray you’ll choose.

That’s “OPTION #6: FIGHT EVERYWHERE.”

But if that’s the option you choose, please recognize how serious this is.

Without an IMMEDIATE influx of funds, Campaign for Liberty will be forced to cut back on our most critical programs and perhaps even end some altogether.

I can’t bear to see that happen.

So won’t you agree to a generous contribution of $15 TODAY?

I know that’s a lot to ask. But these are CRITICAL times.

I’m convinced our shared ideas of liberty have what it takes to restore our country. I’ve been amazed at the incredible progress our R3VOLUTION has seen in recent years.

I can’t tell you what it means to me to have wonderful folks like you fighting continually for restored liberty.

But if $15 is just too much, please agree to give $10 or at least $5.

Because of good folks like you, Campaign for Liberty is now one of the most feared political forces in the entire country.

But we have so much important work in the months ahead.

So please fill out your 2014 Membership Ballot and agree to make your most generous contribution of $15, $10, $5, or whatever you can afford TODAY.

For Liberty,

Ron Paul
Chairman

P.S. I believe – with legislative fights still raging and the critical 2014 election year right around the corner – these next twelve months could be a make or break year for you and me.

Without an IMMEDIATE influx of funds, Campaign for Liberty will be forced to cut back on our most critical programs and perhaps even end some all together.

So please fill out your 2014 Membership Ballot and agree to make your most generous contribution of $15, $10, $5, or whatever you can afford TODAY.

Plans on Audit The Fed

From Rand2016:

Today is the 100th anniversary of the creation of the Federal Reserve and I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than an audit.

And with Janet Yellen's confirmation vote pushed back until after the New Year, this is the perfect opportunity to force a vote on my Audit the Fed Bill (S. 209).

You see, my colleagues thought they could scamper home after a quiet pre-Christmas vote to confirm her as Ben Bernanke's successor.

The Fed apologists tried to ram her nomination through while you were celebrating Christmas with your loved ones so you wouldn't notice them slamming the door on our best chance to force a vote on auditing the Fed.

But thanks to nearly 100,000 petitions bombarding Senate offices and thousands of phone calls, Harry Reid was forced to delay her confirmation vote.

I can only think of one response…

… I’m doubling down.

So I'm announcing the "Audit the Fed" Money Bomb to raise $250,000 by December 31 to launch an all-out blitz ahead of Janet Yellen's confirmation vote.

Through email, online ads and social media, I'll mobilize millions of Americans pinned down by the Fed's economy wrecking policies to ratchet up the pressure on the Senate.

I’m counting on you to stand with me.

Won’t you please contribute as generously as you can to help me Audit the Fed IMMEDIATELY?

With your support, I’m convinced we can create the grassroots tidal wave it will take to force a vote on my Audit the Fed Bill (S.209) in the U.S. Senate.

The truth is, ever since the financial crisis of 2008 – which the Fed’s easy money policies helped create in the first place – the Fed’s economic central planning strategy has boiled down to this . . .

Print money now. Ask questions later.

That alone has made many Americans nervous. Printing money out of thin air to pay the bills ultimately leads to fiscal disaster.

Not only that, but many Americans were shocked to learn the Fed has doled out more than one TRILLION in U.S. dollars to foreign banks.

What else have they been up to? What else are they hiding?

Sadly, since much of the Fed’s actions are “off limits” to the public, you and I can only guess.

We’re just supposed to look the other way and trust them not to misbehave.

Whether it’s the IRS targeting Tea Party organizations, the Justice Department’s wiretapping reporters who dared criticize President Obama, or the NSA admitting to thousands of privacy violations after assuring us there were none – more and more Americans are now understanding just how foolish that would be.

The fact is, nearly 80% of the American people agree the Fed should be audited.

With your help, my Audit the Fed Bill will finally expose the Federal Reserve’s:

***Aiding and abetting big spending politicians in Congress by simply printing more money to pay the bills – destroying the dollar and driving the costs of housing, food, gasoline, higher education and medical care sky-high – when all of Washington, D.C.’s taxes and borrowing still don’t make ends meet;

***Corruption and cronyism and the incredible power the unelected financiers wield over our economy;

***Interest-rate manipulation, “quantitative easing,” and secret bailouts, which instead paper over economic problems and lead to worse conditions down the line – instead of improving economic conditions as some would have you believe.

That’s why it’s so critical you act NOW.

The Janet Yellen confirmation vote will put the Federal Reserve in the spotlight like never before.

Will my colleagues in the Senate really stand up and say “NO!” to auditing the Federal Reserve?

Not if you and I can turn up the pressure.

It’s up to you and me to act right away.

So please make your most generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or $35 to my "Audit the Fed" Money Bomb.

If that is too much for you to afford, please chip in a contribution of $10 or $20 right away.

Your generosity can help me mobilize Americans all over the country to turn up the heat on Congress to Audit the Fed.

This online, social media and email blitz is a proven tactic the grassroots have employed to block President Obama's big government agenda.

Whether it’s stopping President Obama’s march to war in Syria, stopping gun control or forcing the administration’s hand over drone strikes within our borders, you’ve proven your action makes a difference.

Now it’s time to turn our focus on EXPOSING the Federal Reserve.

So please make a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50, $35, $25 or $10 to my "Audit the Fed" Money Bomb at once!

In Liberty,

Senator Rand Paul

P.S. Earlier this year, I introduced S. 209, the Audit the Fed Bill, to EXPOSE the Fed.

Now, I’m convinced you and I have the best opportunity in years to finally pass this critical bill, but the establishment is already fighting back.

That’s why I’m announcing an emergency "Audit the Fed" Money Bomb to run through Tuesday, December 31.

Won’t you please contribute as generously as you can to help me Audit the Fed IMMEDIATELY?

You generous contribution of $250, $100, $50, $35, $25, $10 - or whatever you can afford - will help me create the grassroots tidal wave it will take to force a vote on my Audit the Fed Bill (S.209) in the U.S. Senate.

Fast Track aka Martial Law

From American Jobs Alliance:

This is important - it is urgent we act now.

Next month – while no one is paying attention – President Obama will ask Congress to give him even more power.

Obama wants the power to make foreign policy unilaterally, without having to consult Congress again.

It’s called “Fast Track Trade Promotion Authority” and legislation granting Obama this power will be introduced in Congress on January 8th.

Under “Fast Track” …

§ President Obama would override Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution and strip Congress of its power to oversee foreign commerce.

§ Obama and his corporatist allies would secretly write the job-killing TransPacific Partnership international “trade” deal with no Congressional oversight!

§ Obama would sign and enter the deal before Congress voted on it.

§ Congress could not change one word of the deal Obama has written and already signed.

§ Congress would only have an up-or-down vote – no amendments - and Obama tells Congress when to vote!

§ Congress would have extremely limited time to debate or examine the agreement Obama has written in secret. As Nancy Pelosi said about Obamacare, Congress would have to approve the agreement to find out what’s in it!

House Speaker Boehner and his corporatist paymasters want to pass “fast track” in January before we have a chance to organize.

That’s why we need to act now.

We must let our Representatives know we oppose giving Obama even more power and they must vote NO on Fast Track Trade Promotion Authority!

Click here and we will connect you to your Representative’s office by phone – free of charge.

Our voices will make all the difference.


Call your Representative today and let them know we expect them to vote NO on Fast Track Trade Promotion Authority.


Click here to find your Representative’s phone number - and We will connect you, free of charge.

An organized and outspoken citizenry is the only defense of liberty.

Thank you, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

A dark cloud with a silver lining or Audit The Fed ain't dead

From Campaign For Liberty:

On Friday, the majority of the Senate voted to proceed on Janet Yellen’s confirmation to become the next Federal Reserve Chair.

Harry Reid may have won round one in the battle to confirm Janet Yellen without holding a Senate vote on Audit the Fed (S. 209), but the war is far from over.

And your action is making a major difference!

In fact, while 59 Senators voted for cloture on Yellen, that is far fewer than the 77 who voted for cloture on President Obama's renomination of “Helicopter Ben” Bernanke in 2009!

The motion only passed because of Reid’s continuing refusal to respect the rules of the Senate, which require 60 votes to limit debate on nominations.

But if we can convince only 10 senators to change sides, we can block Yellen's confirmation until Harry Reid finally allows the Senate to vote on Audit the Fed.

And we have already thwarted Reid’s plans to ram Yellen’s nomination through the Senate before Christmas!

Late Thursday night, and after C4L generated huge pressure on the Senate this week, Harry Reid decided to hold off on the final vote until January 6.

This gives us almost three more weeks to mobilize Americans to take action in support of Audit the Fed.

Right now, senators are preparing to leave for the holidays. But over the Christmas break, they will be spending time on constituent meetings and public events.

This is a perfect opportunity for you to personally talk to them about Audit the Fed. You can find your senators’ town hall and public events plans on their websites, and you can call their local offices to schedule face-to-face meetings with them.

You can learn more about which senators sided with the American people – and which sided with the Banksters, big spenders, and special interests – at CampaignForLiberty.org.

If your senators opposed Yellen, please either go to an event they’re holding, call their offices, or schedule a meeting to tell them to keep it up until we get a vote on Audit the Fed!

But if they allied themselves with the Fed, take advantage of this opportunity to tell them you expect them to stand with the nearly 75% of Americans who support transparency and vote against Yellen's confirmation until Harry Reid schedules a vote on Audit the Fed!

Forcing Harry Reid to delay the final vote until January 6 was a major victory. Now we must take advantage of this opportunity by turning up the heat on the Senate even further.

That’s why it’s so important you contact your senators to reinforce the strong message we’ve sent.

I also hope you’ll take just a moment today to chip in $5 or $10 to help Campaign for Liberty apply more pressure on the Senate and pass Audit the Fed!

Thank you so much for your support. Now let’s charge onward to victory!

In Liberty,

John Tate
President

P.S. Though Janet Yellen cleared the first hurdle in her path to becoming the next Fed Chair, our efforts to block her passage until Harry Reid holds a vote on Audit the Fed have helped force Senator Reid to delay the final vote until January 6!

This gives us almost three more weeks to turn up the heat on the Senate. So please learn how your senators voted by visiting our website and then follow up with them over their Christmas break!

If your senators opposed Yellen, urge them to keep doing so until Harry Reid holds a vote on Audit the Fed.

If they voted to advance Yellen's nomination, demand they stop siding with Harry Reid, the financial elites, and the special interests and vote against Yellen’s confirmation unless and until Senator Reid finally holds a roll call vote on Audit the Fed.

I hope you’ll also chip in $5 or $10 today to help Campaign for Liberty apply more pressure on the Senate and pass Audit the Fed!

Donate to safeguard the net

From Fight For The Future:

I have bad news.

We’re winning. We’re winning so hard. But our ability to keep winning is threatened.

We’ve mobilized millions of people to literally fight for the future of the Internet and defend our most basic rights in the digital age. We’ve had an incredible streak of victories, but our ability to communicate with our supporters and continue to organize the web to defend itself is being constantly undermined.

We doubled our Facebook following this year, but Facebook changed their algorithm so less people see our posts. We switched to a secure, open source platform for sending email to our members, but at any moment Google, Yahoo, or Microsoft could decide to send our emails to your spam folder, and a new Canadian law threatens to drastically limit our ability to send email to people who want to take action.

So here’s what we need to do:

We’re going to build an open source mobile app that will act as a rapid-response action alert system for the Internet.

We can’t do it without you. Will you chip in whatever you can to make it happen?

As long as we remain reliant on corporate means to get our message out, the Internet will never truly be safe. We can’t trust them. We need an independent method of getting the word out that lets millions of people take action easily and instantaneously, from their phones, wherever they are.

Imagine if politicians’ phones melted off the hook within hours every time they tried to advance policies that threaten the web. Imagine if Internet freedom supporters could easily communicate, protest, and organize petitions together using independent, open source, encrypted tools.

It’s all possible, and more. But we need to raise $50,000 before the end of the year to make it a reality. We don’t pull our punches, so we’re not exactly expecting big influxes of funds from major tech companies or foundations. We rely on people like you

As we were laying out these critical plans we received a surprise matching donation of up to $20,000 so if you give now before the end of the year your contribution will be doubled.

No amount is too small or too large -- chip in $3 or throw us 300 bitcoins if you’ve got em!

If you’re a developer or want to contribute to this project in another way, that’s awesome too, please get in touch with us.

We are 5 real people spread out all over the world who sit at computers almost 7 days a week doing our damnedest keep the Internet free. We keep our overhead low and spend every cent we can on our hard-hitting campaigns that frequently capture international news headlines. This year alone we organized over 30,000 websites to fight CISPA and NSA spying, used the Internet to get a teenager out of jail and save free speech, made 3 educational videos that were collectively viewed almost million times, raised over $1 million for Charity on Bitcoin Black Friday, and helped organize the largest protest against NSA surveillance in history where we delivered over 575,000 signatures to Congress.

I get goosebumps thinking of how much more we could accomplish if we had an app that lets us directly communicate with our members.

Not everyone can donate, so if you can, it’s up to you!

You’re awesome. All of you. Looking back at this year I’m overwhelmed by what we’ve done together. Keep in touch as we go into the new year, and we promise to keep fighting for you.

Yours for the Internet,

Tiffiniy, Evan, Holmes and the whole Fight for the Future Team

Make your New Year's resolution to prevent Nancy Pelosi from becoming Speaker again

From Stop Pelosi PAC:

Have you made a New Year's resolution yet?

I know it's a bit early, but I have. And it's simple: Defeat Nancy Pelosi in 2014.

2014 is the year Pelosi put on her calendar for the Democrats to re-take control of Congress, and if the Democrats successfully retake Congress, they will re-install Pelosi as Speaker where she will forever cement the disastrous liberal policies of Barack Obama and Harry Reid into the fabric of America.

The success or failure of Obama's liberal agenda will come down to his final two years in office. Ultimately, his success rests entirely on whether or not Nancy Pelosi retakes control of Congress.

Nancy Pelosi must not become Speaker again.

Will you click here to make one of your New Year's Resolutions to Defeat Nancy Pelosi in 2014?

Thousands of Americans have pledged to help defeat Nancy Pelosi, but before the New Year begins, we need another 50,000 Americans to commit. Resolve to ensure Nancy never becomes Speaker of the House AGAIN.

Together, we can build a strong conservative grassroots army to defeat Pelosi.

Stop Pelosi PAC's already got a plan in place, but we need your help to keep it going. Our 4-point action plan to will ensure we defeat Nancy Pelosi next year:

1.Contact 14 million conservative and liberty loving Americans all over the country using mail, phones, and the internet to engage and enlist them in the fight to defeat Nancy Pelosi;

2.Overwhelm the media with anti-Pelosi messaging, granting media interviews, burning up talk radio, holding press conferences and launching bus tours to ensure every liberty loving American is aware of the stakes if Nancy Pelosi becomes Speaker under President Obama;

3.Run state-of-the-art digital and web campaigns on heavily trafficked websites, working the blogs, and launching a highly targeted and effect Facebook campaign to reach and mobilize an additional 2 million more activist to defeat Pelosi;

4.And ultimately, if funds permit, Stop Pelosi will launch powerful TV and Radio ad campaigns in swing districts all across America, ensuring Nancy Pelosi doesn't have the votes to become Speaker of the House.
This comprehensive action plan has what it takes to defeat Nancy Pelosi and President Obama. Now, we need your support.

If you agree that we must stop Nancy Pelosi, then click here to resolve to Defeat Nancy Pelosi in 2014.

And before the end of the year, please chip in at least $5 to help us fight Nancy Pelosi in 2014.

Unless we work together to STOP Pelosi NOW, I'm afraid Barack Obama will win yet another HUGE victory and reinstalling Pelosi as Speaker. The time to act is now -- together we must stop Pelosi now and win this one for our children and our Country.

Faithfully,

Congressman JD Hayworth (Retired)
Co-Founder, Stop Pelosi PAC

P.S. Please, make your New Year's resolution a strong one. We need you if we're going to defeat Nancy Pelosi and stop her from becoming Speaker. Please click here to add your name to those resolved to defeat Nancy Pelosi in 2014. And Please chip in at least $5 to help.

Sign the Balance the Budget Amendment

From The National League Of Taxpayers:

What kind of future will you have?

What kind of future will your kids, your grandkids, your nieces, and your nephews have?

These are serious questions facing not only you but all of us in Congress.

You see, as I write you today:

*** The deficit this year is projected at $642 billion with more than $6 trillion added to our debt since 2008;

*** Social Security has already begun to run in the red;

*** The real unemployment rate today is more than 14 percent with millions more workers relegated to part-time work;

*** Medicare is ultimately destined to totally run out of money while private insurance rates are skyrocketing.
The fact is, the $16 trillion national debt we hear so much about is just the tip of the iceberg.

When the government's unfunded liabilities for Medicare, Social Security, and federal employees' retirement benefits are counted, American taxpayers are really on the hook for over $86.8 trillion.

The fact is, President Obama and my big spending colleagues in Washington, D.C. have been piling on to our national debt every day, and show no signs of slowing down.

They've been spending money we don't have for so long, some economists are beginning to question not if the U.S. will ultimately have to declare bankruptcy, but when.

If we don't reverse course soon, the consequences will be disastrous.

That's why it's so important you help build a tidal wave of popular support for a long-term solution by supporting a constitutional amendment to require a balanced budget while limiting the growth of taxes and spending.

And why, to deal with our immediate debt crisis, I hope you'll sign the special "Just Say No" Petition below to reject the next debt ceiling increase scheduled to come up in just 9 weeks.

With your help, the National League of Taxpayers plans to generate a tidal wave of petitions to my colleagues.

Of course, just as they falsely claimed about the so-called "sequestration of funds" earlier this year, President Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi will say a vote to stop a debt ceiling hike will be an economic Armageddon.

But the fact is, the federal government can still spend $6.7 billion per day without raising the debt ceiling one penny.

Of course, the "solution" to our ongoing fiscal disaster put forward by President Obama and his tax-and-spend allies is to tax ourselves out of the hole.

The fact is, we can immediately achieve hundreds of billions in savings by:

*** Abolishing the boondoggle Departments of Education, Energy, Commerce, and Housing and Urban Development;

*** Repealing the monstrously expensive ObamaCare and Dodd-Frank financial regulation law;

*** Transitioning Medicaid and food stamps back to the states where they belong and cutting back on the $37 billion spent on foreign aid.

Today, the feds run 79 different welfare programs, 160 programs for housing assistance, 47 for job training, 82 for teacher quality, 80 for transportation assistance, and 56 for financial education.

In return for all that, we still have an official poverty rate of 15 percent.

Yet Barack Obama and his liberal pals keep binging.

Now, with votes on the debt ceiling coming up in a matter of weeks, it's vital that in addition to signing up to show your support for a tough Balanced Budget Amendment, you also sign your "Just Say No" Petition to your Congressman and Senators.

The only way to force them to confront the debt head-on is by making sure they know the American people won't stand for inaction.

That's why it's vital that you click here to sign your "Just Say No" Debt Ceiling Petition to your Senators and Congressman.

And for a long-term solution, also return your Declaration of Support for Senate Joint Resolution 7 and House Joint Resolution 5, a tough Balanced Budget Amendment I have cosponsored along with 44 of my Senate colleagues.

This Amendment would not only require a balanced budget but would require a two-thirds vote by both houses of Congress to raise taxes, and a three-fifths vote to raise the debt ceiling.

As President Reagan so forcefully said, "no nation on earth has taxed itself into prosperity."

That's why I hope you will sign both your "Just Say No" Debt Ceiling Petition and your Balanced Budget Declaration of Support at once.

And why, in addition to that, it's vital that you help my friends at the National League of Taxpayers with a special contribution.

The fact is, even though many Americans who receive this e-mail will sign the petition, many won't be able to contribute.

That's why it's vital you give $10, $25, $50, $100, or even more if you can.

Your special gift of $35 or even $100 or $500 will ultimately save taxpayers literally billions of dollars in the years to come.

You should also know that a generous supporter has agreed to match your contribution, dollar-for-dollar, so there isn't a better time to give.

Your donations will help the National League of Taxpayers organize:

*** Extensive internet, direct mail, and telephone campaigns to generate at least one million petitions and questionnaires to Congress like the ones that accompany my letter;

*** Extensive personal lobbying of key Members of Congress by rank and file National League of Taxpayers members and staff;

*** Hard-hitting TV, radio, and newspaper ads to be run in targeted states and districts, mobilizing the American people and detailing the dangers of our soaring debt.

Your donation will help the National League of Taxpayers reach up to 10 million Americans and generate a tidal wave of opposition to raising the debt ceiling while building long-term support for a Balanced Budget Amendment.

So after clicking here to complete your Balanced Budget Amendment Declaration and sign your "Just Say No" Debt Ceiling Petition, please help with a contribution of at least $25 or $35.

Some people have already given as much as $500.

Others have sent $50 or $100, but no matter how much you give, whether it's chipping in with $10 or a larger contribution of $150, I guarantee your contribution is urgently needed and will be deeply appreciated.

And don't forget that a generous supporter has agreed to match your contribution, dollar-for-dollar, no matter the amount.

The national debt is such an out-of-control behemoth that if we again raise the debt ceiling, it will threaten to put America on a path of permanent decline.

With your help, we can stem the tide of Big Government and stop Barack Obama and his liberal pals from spending us into oblivion.

Sincerely,

Steve Stockman
United States Congressman

P.S. Federal entitlement costs are out-of-control while our national debt is skyrocketing.

So please fill out your Balanced Budget Amendment Declaration of Support and sign your "Just Say No" Debt Ceiling Petition which the National League of Taxpayers has prepared for your Congressman and Senators.

And also, to serve a mandate on my colleagues, take advantage of the special matching grant and send a generous contribution of $100, $75, $50, or $35 at once.

Remember, a generous supporter has agreed to match your contribution, dollar-for-dollar, so there isn't a better time to give.

With the next debt ceiling fight coming up in January, it's vital the Congress face a tidal wave of petitions when they get back, so please click here.

But any day now, a federal court could decide whether to strike down the only protections we have against companies like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon. These companies want to kill Net Neutrality, the guiding principle of the open Internet, and block what we do and say online.

Verizon and its friends will stop at nothing to shut down the Internet we love. That’s why the company is suing to throw out the Net Neutrality rules — and to get rid of the FCC’s ability to draft and enforce any rules that protect Internet users and promote competition online.

If Verizon wins, the open Internet will be a thing of the past — unless we act to protect it right now.

Donate to Free Press and Help Us Fight Back.

We’re on the verge of a true David-and-Goliath moment. The opportunity to flip the balance of power is in our hands.

On one side: Free Press — leading a people-powered movement to protect our rights to connect and communicate. (By the way, we don’t take any money from business, government or political parties. We rely on friends like you to fuel our work.)

On the other: Verizon. It has billions of dollars in the bank and an army of lawyers and lobbyists on its payroll.

Tell the Rainbow Mafia to leave Phil Robertson alone

From Public Advocate:

I am putting out a call for emergency action.

A fight has just exploded over whether or not celebrities have the right to speak freely -- at least when they OPPOSE the Homosexual Agenda.

You see, Phil Robertson is one of the stars of the very popular television show Duck Dynasty.

Robertson and his family have made a name for themselves by staunchly endorsing and even displaying wholesome family values and their Christian faith on camera.

In fact, every episode is closed out with a family prayer.

In his off-screen time, Phil Robertson spends much of his time spreading his faith and attacking the moral decay of this nation.

But yesterday, he crossed major media’s “line in the sand” when he spoke out against the Homosexual Agenda.

In an interview with GQ Magazine, Phil dared to speak the truth:

Homosexuality is a sin according to the Bible.

GQ quoted him saying that when “everything is blurred on what's right and what's wrong ... sin becomes fine."

And I couldn't agree more.

The Homosexual Lobby wants to blur what constitutes a family, what defines relationships -- and completely destroy any concept of morality or traditional values.

Of course, the media backlash was instantaneous and furious.

They could not believe a public figure would speak out so honestly about his beliefs.

Especially when those beliefs conflict with their Homosexual Agenda.

The Homosexual Lobby immediately went on the attack with their deceitful propaganda.

They actually claimed that “true Christians” do NOT oppose the Homosexual Agenda.

Of course, that is ridiculous and completely false.

But there is no truth the Homosexual Lobby won’t twist to fit their agenda.

Their attack was so vicious that the A&E television network fired Phil Robertson from the Duck Dynasty show hours later.

While Public Advocate doesn’t normally get involved in private business matters, this situation is different.

Please sign your petition to A&E demanding that they stop silencing Phil Robertson for speaking about his Christian faith.

Phil spoke out in support of real family values and traditional morality... and A&E made this a public issue when they sacked him for it.

You and I cannot leave a pro-Family spokesman alone while he’s under attack.

If we don’t come to his defense, the Homosexual Lobby will guarantee that our families never see anything wholesome in the media again.

That’s why I am asking every member of Public Advocate to take a moment today to help Phil out.

Please CLICK HERE to sign your petition to stop the Homosexual Lobby's efforts to censure Christian values.

Let them know that there are still pro-Family Americans left in this country.

We need to generate an overwhelming show of support for Phil and his public stance.

For the Family,

HON. EUGENE DELGAUDIO
President, Public Advocate of the U.S.

P.S. The Homosexual Lobby wants to censure all Christian opposition to their radical Agenda.

Please sign your petition in defense of Phil Robertson today.

I'm getting tired of the rainbow mafia and their inquistions of anyone who doesn't tow their partyline. Thank you Public Advocate for standing up to them.

Let's tell ABC News and Barbara Walters they were wrong in choosing Hillary as person of the year

From Stop Hillary PAC:

Who is the 2013 Person of the Year?

Hillary Clinton?

According to Barbara Walters and the liberals at ABC News -- Hillary Clinton is the most fascinating Person of 2013.

Disgusting!

Have they forgotten about the 4 dead Americans in Benghazi?

Have they forgotten how our Ambassador came under attack from an Al Qaeda-led mob of terrorists, while Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration shamefully chose to abandon them -- leaving them to die?

And have they forgotten how Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are actively trying to cover-up the crimes of Benghazi?

Are you as disgusted as I am?

If so, I'm asking you to click here and immediately sign our Protest Petition to Barbara Walters and ABC news.

With your help, Stop Hillary PAC is fighting back. We are going to create a firestorm with thousands, if not millions, Protest Petitions to let Barbara Walters and ABC News know exactly how disgusted the American people are about their choice.

You see, Stop Hillary PAC was created for this very purpose -- to fight back against Hillary and her cheerleaders in the liberal media, and to ensure she never becomes president of the United States.

So, will you join me in fighting back by signing our Protest Petition today?

Your Protest Petition, along with thousands more, will be delivered directly to Barbara Walters and ABC News demanding to know exactly what they were thinking naming Hillary Clinton person of the year for 2013.

Your Protest Petition will register your disgust with their shameful and disgusting decision, while reminding them of the dead Americans in Benghazi that surely don't think Hillary Clinton is "fascinating."

And finally, we will register your disgust by ensuring we get a response from ABC News. We won't rest until we hear back.

One last thing: In order for us to make the maximum impact we need to deliver hundreds-of-thousands of Protest Petitions, if not millions. That's where your continued support comes in.

So after you sign your Protest Petition, will you help us have maximum impact and reach our goal by making a special, end of the year contribution to Stop Hillary PAC?

Just $5 will help us distribute 2,000 more Protest Petitions to your fellow Americans. Your $25 end of the year gift will help us distribute 10,000 Protest Petitions. And if you could afford it, $100 would help us send out a whopping 40,000 Protest Petitions.

Just imagine what Barbara Walters will do when we drop over a million petitions in her lap at ABC News.

But I can't do it without your help.

So please, click here to register your disgust with Barbara Walters and ABC News by signing your Protest Petition today.

And make a generous gift of at least $5 -- or even $100 if you can afford it.

Let them know we haven't forgotten Benghazi, we are disgusted with their choice and we are fighting back.

Sincerely,

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

PS. If you are as disgusted as I am about Hillary Clinton being the Person of the Year -- click here to sign the Protest Petition immediately.

Tell Reid to vote on S 209

From Rand2016:

The vote to break cloture on Janet Yellen's nomination to succeed Ben Bernanke is scheduled to take place tin a matter of hours. You and I demanded a vote on Audit the Fed to move forward on the nomination.

But Harry Reid is still refusing to budge on scheduling a vote on my Audit the Fed bill (S. 209) unless Republicans also give him a slew of other Obama nominees as well.

Of course, this is a mess Harry Reid started.

First he rammed through a rules change, breaking Senate rules to do so.

Then he rammed through a terrible budget deal.

Now he is desperately trying to clear out a huge lost of nominations before Christmas.

I am standing firm. No vote on Audit the Fed, no giving an inch on nominees.

It's vital you pick up the phone and contact your Senators right away and demand they vote against cloture as long as Harry Reid refuses to listen to your calls for accountability at the Fed.

You can reach your Senators by calling 202-224-3121.

If there is one thing politicians hate; it's their office phone lines melting down with angry constituents on the other end of the line.

Angry voters can sway fence-sitting politicians so please contact your Senators right away by calling 202-224-3121.

Send them a clear message that it's inexcusable that the Fed be allowed to escape scot-free for their failed easy money policies that crashed our economy and pinned it down in a cycle of stagnation.

Only a swarm of phone calls can force the Senate to act on Audit the Fed.

So please contact your Senators right away and demand they refuse to yield to Harry Reid's scheme to ram Janet Yellen's nomination though the Senate without voting on Audit the Fed.

In Liberty,

Senator Rand Paul

P.S. After you contact your Senators, please chip in a contribution so I can continue to lead the fight in the Senate for auditing the Fed.


Or you can email them

Help Public Advocate reach their year end goal

From Public Advocate:

Just weeks remain before Public Advocate reaches a critical deadline -- before every radical homosexual activist holds a copy of Public Advocate’s financial records in his conniving hands.

December 31st, 2013 is the deadline for contributions to appear on the IRS 990, the public report that discloses exactly how much money Public Advocate has raised in 2013.

But right now, our figures are falling short of my 2013 objectives.

If I’m to meet budget expectations this year, I must raise $81,909 with all electronic payments received by December 31st.

If I fail to raise $81,909 by December 31st, I’ll be forced to broadcast our weakness and vulnerability to the Homosexual Lobby.

After the brutal fights this year on the Defense of Marriage Act, the Gay Bill of Special Rights, and the Homosexual Classrooms Act, the Homosexual Lobby must not find Public Advocate with little money left to fight next year.

Don’t worry, no one in the Homosexual Lobby will ever know how much you’ve contributed to Public Advocate.

Your personal information is kept confidential.

But when I turn in my 990 next year, the Homosexual Lobby will know exactly how much money I raised -- and how much I still have left to oppose the Homosexual Agenda next year.

The radical Homosexual Lobby will be looking for ANY sign of weakness in the pro-Family movement.

Believe me, they haven’t given up.

If they see Public Advocate’s treasury depleted they will see an opening to ram through the Gay Bill of Special Rights, the Homosexual Classrooms Act and National Homosexual “Marriage.”

As I look over my records, I see that you’ve given to Public Advocate in the past.

Words cannot express how much I appreciate your noble sacrifice.

Without your financial support and prayers, Public Advocate would be nothing -- totally helpless against the radical homosexuals’ assault on our families.

You have done so much for our cause. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Today, I’m asking you to dig even deeper.

I hope to count on you for at least $10, $15 or even $20 if you can afford it.

Please don’t just save this email for later or delete it.

If we hope to beat the Homosexual Agenda next year, we must end this year strong -- and the last thing I want to do is submit a public financial report that shows I clearly did not meet my budget goals for 2013.

That’s why I’m asking you to give whatever you can afford today.

My friend, I hope you understand why this deadline is so important to me.

Deviant homosexual operatives are about to know exactly how much I raised this year, and how much cash I have on hand to oppose their radical agenda.

The Homosexual Lobby utterly despises Public Advocate and ridicules all the work you and I do to defend morality in America.

The Human Rights Campaign, the Southern Poverty Law Center, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, GLAAD, the North American Man/Boy Love Association, and every other radical homosexual organization will be scouring our finance report to exploit every chink in my armor.

The consequences could prove dire for the American family.

Right now homosexual activists are plotting to tempt Republicans into passing their perverse agenda. They will tell them passing the Gay Bill of Special Rights will “expand the tent” and “keep you in the majority” -- that the pro-Family movement is too weak.

And I have almost nothing left financially.

I have the troops and volunteers.

I have their commitment to fight on.

I have the organization to take this battle to the front lines!

But without the financial armaments to take on the radical homosexual threat, I can do nothing while our government helps eradicate morality from America.

And now that President Barack Obama and far-left Democrats have retained their control of the White House and Senate, that threat grows more and more bold every day.

This year alone, they have repealed part of the Defense of Marriage Act and rammed the Gay Bill of Special Rights through the Senate... and Obama does not have to worry about re-election, so he can act as a rubber stamp of approval for the Homosexual Lobby.

I must know if I can continue to count on you -- that you’ll stand with me in reaching my budget goals before December 31st.

I hate having to tell you like this, but I have no other choice.

Money is so tight now that I may have to scale back critical pro-Family programs at the worst time of year -- as Congress reconvenes in January.

As you know, my office doesn’t receive public funding for our important pro-Family campaigns.

While the Homosexual Lobby continues to siphon millions of taxpayer dollars to bankroll front groups like “AIDS Awareness” campaigns and radical “sex education” initiatives, I raise every penny from concerned Americans like you.

Today, my friend, I ask you to please make a generous contribution -- before it’s too late.

I pray I can keep all of Public Advocate’s programs running strong to confront the radical Homosexual Agenda and defeat the deplorable tactics of their shadowy Congressional cronies.

But Public Advocate can’t keep up the pace without additional financial support from pro-Family patriots like you.

The radical Homosexual Lobby outspent Public Advocate this year around 30 to 1, and their dirty war chest continues to grow at an alarming rate.

Nevertheless, Public Advocate managed to check the Homosexual Lobby on several fronts.

We used your petitions and postcards to strike fear in the hearts of enough Congressmen and Senators to stave off votes on the Homosexual Classrooms Act and so far stall the Gay Bill of Special Rights in the House.

And you and I organized support for the religious freedom of private Christian businesses when the Homosexual Lobby launched massive attacks on their pro-Family stances.

But even with these setbacks, the Homosexual Lobby made horrifying gains in 2013; including the legalization of homosexual “marriage” in even more states.

Now they’re promising to pass National Homosexual “Marriage” at the federal level.

Will you fight back?

And to do it, they have to take you and me out of the fight.

Their attack dog -- the Southern Poverty Law Center -- has been dragging your Public Advocate through an expensive and drawn-out court battle.

And they aren’t going to stop. Building on their legislative and candidate victories, radical activists are ready to push the Homosexual Agenda at every level and in every community.

And with anti-family Barack Obama ready with pen in hand for two more years, Democrats in charge of the Senate and weak-kneed Republicans in the House, the Homosexual Lobby will be a bigger threat next year than ever before.

You can expect to see all of the pro-homosexual bills, from the Gay Bill of Special Rights to the Homosexual Classrooms Act to the Offense of Marriage Act trotted out before Congress once again.

They’ll be looking to exploit our every weakness in the months to come.

No wonder they’ll be poring over my finance report like demented hyenas cackling as they stalk their prey, ready to rip it to shreds.

That’s why your emergency gift of $10, $15 or $20 is so important.

Without it, the Homosexual Lobby will be able to show Public Advocate’s 990 to moderate politicians as proof there is no effective opposition to their agenda.

Not only that, if we fail to meet our goals we won’t even be able to fund all of our pro- Family programs next year -- so I’m counting on you to stand by my side to help me raise the funds I need by December 31st.

Only with your financial support and prayers can I continue to defend the American family in key battles across America.

Whether you can give $10, $15, $20 -- or whatever you can afford -- I would be tremendously grateful.

I hope and pray you will pull through for me before December 31st by chipping in with your most generous contribution.

You have been there for me in the past. I hope and pray you will pull through for me before December 31st by sending your most generous contribution.

Your emergency gift of $5, $10, $15, or even $20 will save Public Advocate from certain defeat next year as the Homosexual Lobby still has many allies in Congress and the anti-Family Obama White House.

Can you help?

Sincerely,


HON. EUGENE DELGAUDIO
President, Public Advocate of the United States


P.S. I urgently need your help before December 31st -- the cut off for me to disclose to the IRS exactly how much money Public Advocate has raised and spent this year.

And after a long year of leading the fight to oppose the Homosexual Agenda in Washington, I have little ammunition left to fight back or mount an offense in 2014.

However, as much as it pains me to say it, I haven’t met my fundraising goals this year -- and if I turn in a report advertising that fact, the Homosexual Lobby will exploit our weakness and move in for the kill.

Your emergency gift of $5, $10, $15, or even $20 will save Public Advocate from certain defeat next year as the Homosexual Lobby still has many allies in Congress and the anti-family Obama White House.
