Let's demand answers in the death of Aaron Swartz

Tens of thousands of people have used the White House's petition site to demand that President Obama fire Aaron Swartz's prosecutor Carmen Ortiz -- easily surpassing the 25,000 signature threshold that's supposed to guarantee a response.

Aaron died more than two weeks ago, but the White House still hasn't even issued a statement.

We've been waiting far too long. Help us demand answers from the White House. It's enough already: They need to respond to our calls and fire Ortiz.

Just click here to tell the White House to stop stonewalling and fire Ortiz.

There's actually some good news to report: The House Oversight Committee has responded to our requests and is calling for a briefing on Aaron's prosecution from the Department of Justice.

That's because what happened to Aaron looks far more like a persecution than a prosecution: Ortiz wanted him to serve upwards of 35 years in federal prison for downloading too many ACADEMIC ARTICLES.

We've demanded answers, Congress is demanding answers. It's time for the White House to stop ignoring us.

Click here to tell the White House to stop stonewalling and fire Ortiz already!

35+ simply for downloading academic articles? If he wasn't doing anything illegal why the heavy-handed methods? The government did what it could to silence him. There are some that are saying Swartz was the recipient of an assisted suicide.

Tell Cantor and Boehner not to back down

From Campaign For Liberty:

John Boehner and Eric Cantor are planning on a surrender on the debt limit fight THIS MORNING.

Please read the message below from John Tate that details their cowardly plans.

Afterwards, call Boehner, Cantor, and YOUR Representative IMMEDIATELY and DEMAND they vote "NO" on a debt ceiling increase.

Speaker Boehner - (202) 225-0600 email

Majority Leader Cantor - (202) 225-4000 email

Find your represatative here

Just hours ago, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced he will postpone his assault on the filibuster until Thursday.

This battle is far from over, but thanks to your consistent action and quick work to turn up the pressure, it's clear Harry Reid is scrambling to find the votes he needs.

But right now, there's another all-out EMERGENCY C4L needs your help to combat.

Tomorrow, in a push led by Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor, the U.S. House is scheduled to vote on a plan to increase the debt limit by... infinity.

You see, passage of this scheme would hand President Obama a blank check to spend whatever he can get through Congress before this summer!

That's why it's vital you give Speaker Boehner, Majority Leader Cantor, and your U.S. Representative a piece of your mind IMMEDIATELY!

Only weeks ago, as they caved in to President Obama's demands for higher spending and increased taxes, Republican leadership told you and me not to worry.

Sure, our nation is mired in over $16 TRILLION of debt.

Sure, it's common sense that Congress needs to rein in its reckless, drunken spending.

But first, they had to cave in to President Obama on economy-crushing higher taxes (and just you never mind that their plan hiked spending, too)...

The good news, we were told, was the new debt ceiling fight would surely give fiscal conservatives the "leverage" they'd been seeking to cut spending!

Now, those outright LIES have been totally exposed.

It seems Speaker Boehner and Eric Cantor are afraid to EVER stand up to President Obama and Harry Reid's demands for more spending.

In fact, under this new scheme, whatever new spending hikes, massive new boondoggles, and outrageous new assaults on our liberties President Obama can ram through an increasingly compliant Congress by May 19 will be automatically funded with borrowing increases.

And with the Federal Reserve eager to buy up as much debt as they can with dollars created out of thin air, I fear what this could mean to our already fragile economy.

That's why it's vital you take action right away!

Please call House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor at once.

Tell them exactly what you think of this new scheme to grow government, chicken out from taking a stand again, and stick you with the bill – and do not mince words.

While you're at it, call your U.S. Representative.

Tell your Representative to vote "NO!" on this radical scheme before it's too late.

Our window to make our voices heard is rapidly closing, so please act at once!

In Liberty,

John Tate
President

P.S. Tomorrow, in a push led by Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor, the U.S. House is scheduled to vote on a plan to increase the debt ceiling by... infinity.

That's why it's vital you contact Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Cantor and demand they abandon this radical scheme.

Please also contact your U.S. Representative and make your opinion clearly known.


Sounds good. We don't have the money to spend on Obama's mad scheme so someone needs to tell him where to go. Obama needs to leave this alone,abandon his feminist schemes and stir this country right. We don't have the money for his bullshit so tell him to leave it alone.

Audit the Fed-let's get this finished

From Campaign For Liberty:

Our fragile economy is speeding toward a collision with economic ruin.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has jammed his foot down on the gas pedal.

And now statist economists are even discussing hyperinflationary "minting" out of thin air - arguing the Fed should create a trillion-dollar coin to pay our rapidly expanding debt!

Without your action today, I'm afraid members of BOTH parties will continue to just look the other way while the Fed's "print-now, ask-questions-later" policies bankrupt every man, woman, and child in the United States.

That's why I'm counting on you to fill out your Audit the Fed petition to Campaign for Liberty to make YOUR voice heard IMMEDIATELY.

I'll give you the link in just a moment. But first let me explain exactly why this is so important.

I know the Fed banksters believe they've wined and dined and bought off enough politicians to keep up their iron grip on our economy.

But while the Fed may have cash and connections, you and C4L have the numbers. And politics is a numbers game.

Five years ago, few dared talk about sound money or the role of the Federal Reserve.

But now, between 70-80% of Americans believe the Fed should be audited.

And as any politician worth his salt knows, standing in the way of nearly three quarters of the American people when they're activated and mobilized on an issue is like standing in the way of an oncoming freight train.

But none of that matters if good folks like you don't take action.

You see, after Harry Reid recently praised Bernanke - and said he'd have to "talk to" the Fed Chairman before allowing a vote on Audit the Fed - there's no doubt he's in the Fed's back pocket.

And ever since the GOP's 2012 election debacle, House Republican leadership has been in disarray.

Their willingness to allow President Obama to set the agenda on taxes and spending has me worried Audit the Fed will be swept under the rug.

This would be a DISASTER.

With passage of Audit the Fed, the American people will be able to see the evidence proving the Federal Reserve System leads to:

*** Constant economic crises. The housing crisis and the resulting chaos is just one example of an economic bubble created by centrally planned interest rates and money manipulation;

*** The destruction of the middle class. As fuel, food, housing, medical care, and education costs soar, everyone who is NOT on the government dole is forced to make do with less as the value of their money slowly decreases;

*** Currency destruction. History shows us that riots, violence, and full-scale police states can result when people finally realize our money isn't worth the paper it's printed on and REFUSE to accept it.

So won't you please sign your Audit the Fed petition to C4L TODAY?

I hope you'll act IMMEDIATELY.

Even after 2012's "QE3" - which was dubbed "QE-infinity" for its never-ending inflationary printing spree - news is the Fed is "considering" another $870 BILLION QE4!

On top of that, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner is DEMANDING the President be handed the unilateral ability to raise the debt ceiling at will!

So the solution to our economic problems is infinite dollar devaluation to pay for infinite spending?

Any sane person can see the answer is "NO!"

Now, countries around the globe - after spending years enabling the statists' lavish boondoggles by buying U.S. debt - are saying "enough is enough" and are preparing to cut the last thread preserving the dollar.

But the banksters and Washington, D.C.'s politically connected corporate cronies couldn't care less.

They're happy so long as their coffers are flush with Fed cash, taxpayer bailouts, and special government "perks" designed to destroy capitalism's name and usher in even more government control over our lives.

But if Campaign for Liberty can turn up the heat on Congress once again, every politician - including Harry Reid - will have a choice to make:

Vote to pass Audit the Fed... or find a new job.

Ultimately, it's their call.

All I know is, I can think of several politicians off the top of my head that I wouldn't mind joining me in retirement!

That's why it's so critical you sign your Audit the Fed petition to Campaign for Liberty TODAY!

Thanks to the support of good folks like you, Campaign for Liberty has a "reputation" in Washington, D.C.

Last year, thanks to their efforts, Audit the Fed passed the House by an overwhelming three-fourths majority.

In fact, C4L has quickly become the big spending, Big Government statists' number-one enemy.

And I think that's a good thing.

Today, I'm asking you to join their efforts by signing your Audit the Fed petition to C4L and - if possible - agreeing to a generous contribution.

With your support, C4L will launch an all-out drive to give the American people a voice in calling for Audit the Fed by:

1) Contacting up to 12 million Americans via hard-hitting mail and email to alert them to the Fed's shady dealings;

2) Running web ads on heavily trafficked websites, working the blogs, and launching a state-of-the-art Facebook campaign to reach and mobilize up to four million more supporters;

3) Work the talk radio lines, write op-eds, and continue to take the fight to the statists' phony intellectual machine, which got us into this economic mess in the first place;

4) In the days before the vote, launch hard-hitting radio, newspaper, and Internet ads calling on Representatives and Senators by name to support Audit the Fed;

5) And finally, if funds permit, C4L will launch an excoriating TV ad campaign - to be unveiled in key states in massive press conferences - ensuring every targeted Senator knows his reelection could ride on his or her Audit the Fed vote.

This is an ambitious plan, I know. But it's what it will take to win.

Sadly, not everyone understands the damage the Fed routinely causes with its inflationary policies.

Some - especially those who leech off government and have wedded themselves to Big Government's big handouts - just won't "get it" until catastrophe hits them in the face.

That's why these times call for true patriots.

I know you understand doing nothing is not an option.

So won't you please agree to sign your Audit the Fed petition to C4L.

You have the ability to make a difference.

I've seen it. My former colleagues in Washington, D.C. have seen it, too.

So please sign your Audit the Fed petition to C4L.

For Liberty,

Dr. Ron Paul
Chairman

P.S. I'm counting on you to sign your Audit the Fed petition to C4L right away.

With your signed petition and generous support, C4L members and thousands of other Americans can finally EXPOSE the Federal Reserve's corruption and rampant cronyism.


Sign the petition

We've been at this for a while. We want to see what the fed is up to and this may be our chance. Let's put the pressure up sign the petition right away.

Harry Reid is getting desperate

From Public Advocate:

My friend, the Senate has just shut down our Fax Petitions.

Over the past week, millions of faxed petitions have poured into the Senate demanding that our senators stand up to Harry Reid's corrupt plan to destroy the minority's Filibuster.

The flood of faxes drastically increased when pro-Family activists learned that Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was talking about a sell-out deal.

And Public Advocate supporters have been on the frontlines of this fight the whole time.

But now someone in the Senate has made the decision to block our faxed petitions protesting the Filibuster "Reform."

This can mean only one thing... You and I are getting to them!

They know that you and I are wise to the dangers of this reform -- the entire Homosexual Agenda could be fast-tracked right through the Senate!

But there is no way I am going to let their despicable tactics succeed.

Now we have to turn up the heat even more.

To do this, I need you to take three simple steps:

1) Call Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's office at (202)224-2541 and ask him why he is siding with Harry Reid on the so-called Filibuster "Reform."

2) Call the Senate Switchboard at (202)224-3121 and ask to speak to your senators directly. Let them know you oppose any deal for so-called Filibuster "Reform."

3) Forward this email to your friends and family and ask them to take action right away!

The nation is counting on you.

If every supporter of Public Advocate takes action today, we will rock the Senate to its foundations.

Please do what you can today to stand with the Family.

For the Family,

Eugene Delgaudio
President, Public Advocate of the United States


You can email Senator Mitch McConnell and find your Representative here. Filibuster is a big deal. I belong to a lot of groups and no two groups ever say the same thing. Until now and this is the common issue so you know it's big. Don't pass this one up our freedom is on the line. Send those emails today.

Tell Senator McConnell to oppose Senator Reid's mad schemes about filibuster reform

It seems that every group I am in contact with is focused upon one single issue: Stop Senator Harry Reid from gutting the filibuster rule. The filibuster has served the people well over the years at the expense of the statists and other members of the PTB. They know this and now is why they want to completely kill the filibuster or if that is not possible severely weaken it. Yep,it seems filibuster reform is as is popular as a turd in a punchbowl. From Right To Work:

If some of the reports I'm getting from Capitol Hill are even close to true, then you need to contact Minority Leader Mitch McConnell immediately.

As your faxes, emails, and phone calls keep pouring into your Senators' offices urging them to oppose Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's latest scheme, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is reportedly looking to cut a deal to water down the filibuster.

Many grassroots activists remember some of the deals McConnell has made over the years, but this might be the worst one yet.

In fact, the vote to gut the filibuster could be the most important vote this Senate takes in the next two years.

That's why it's vital you authorize your fax petition to Mitch McConnell at once urging him not to cave to Harry Reid.

You see, reliable sources indicate that Harry Reid knows he does NOT have the 51 votes he needs to completely wipe out the filibuster with the so-called "nuclear option" yet.

But McConnell is reportedly trying to broker a deal that would dangerously weaken the filibuster, while increasing his own power.

And the union bosses are unleashing Big Labor's forced-dues-backed warchest to back any scheme that weakens our future ability to block their radical forced-dues agenda.

Just this week, Communications Workers of America (CWA) union bosses announced a massive spending blitz to pay for television and Internet ads in support of Reid's plan to gut the filibuster.

They know that the filibuster is what has stopped some of their most dangerous legislation from becoming law over the years, including:

  • Card Check Forced Unionism, which would have eliminated the secret ballot in union organizing campaigns;


  • Police/Firefighter Monopoly Bargaining, the bill that was designed to FORCE virtually every first responder in the country under union boss control;


  • Repeal of Section 14b of the Taft-Hartley Act, thereby dismantling all 24 duly-enacted state Right to Work laws at once.


  • If Mitch McConnell cuts a deal, all of those issues could eventually be back on the table.

    The vote could come as soon as Tuesday, so there's not a moment to lose.

    Please click here to sign your fax petition to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell insisting he oppose Reid's scheme AND any so-called "compromise" that will water down the filibuster.

    Concerned citizens like you must fight back -- and urge Mitch McConnell not to cut a deal with Harry Reid.

    Please act at once.

    Sincerely,

    Mark Mix

    P.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is reportedly "negotiating" with Harry Reid to water down the Senate filibuster, which concerned citizens like you have relied on time and again to keep Big Labor from stealing even more destructive monopoly power.

    Please click here to authorize your fax petition urging McConnell NOT to cut a deal and protect the filibuster.

    I'm not a big fan of increasing government power,especially at the expense of the people. If you believe the same way fill out that petition. If you want to also email Senator Mitch McConnell you can do that here. The more of us he hears from the better so petition and/or email him today.

    Tell your Senators to defend the filibuster by opposing Harry Reid

    From Campaign For Liberty:

    When the Senate reconvenes on January 22, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is expected to launch an all-out war on the Senate filibuster.

    And he's willing to flat-out break Senate rules and longstanding traditions to achieve his goal.

    If the statists in Washington, D.C. get their way, they'll be able to ram their entire Big Government agenda through the Senate.

    That's why it's vital you sign your C4L Fax Authorization Form to your U.S. Senators demanding they vote against Harry Reid's attempt to destroy the Senate filibuster.

    Of course, as with virtually all parliamentary bodies, the Senate's rules can be changed or amended.

    But changing the rules requires 67 votes - or a two-thirds majority of the Senate.

    Unfortunately, Harry Reid doesn't care about the rules, and he's scheming to abolish the Senate filibuster with just 51 votes - or a simple majority.

    Should he succeed, the statists in Washington will have the unchecked ability to push through their entire Big Government agenda.

    And the really bad news is, according to inside sources, Senator Reid believes he has 51 Senators willing to break the rules with him to destroy the filibuster.

    That's why it's critical you sign your C4L Fax Authorization Form IMMEDIATELY.

    You see, the Senate filibuster has been an indispensable tool in stopping some of the worst of the statists' Big Government power grabs over the years.

    When Al Gore's radical environmentalist pals in Congress attempted to ram through "Cap and Tax," it was the Senate filibuster that stopped them - preventing this disastrous scheme from destroying our economy.

    When Big Labor's allies tried to ram through the union bosses' Card Check Forced Unionism Bill, it was the Senate filibuster that stopped them - saving secret-ballot elections for union organizing.

    When the anti-gun crowd attempted to renew the so-called "Assault Weapons Ban" back in 2005, it was the Senate filibuster that prevented its renewal.

    And when the statists wanted to make sure they could get easy access to the names and addresses of those who opposed their schemes, the Senate filibuster allowed us to beat the so-called "Disclose" Act.

    Without the ability to filibuster, the statists will be able to ram through gun control, tax hikes, massive spending increases, and virtually anything else they can dream up.

    That's why it's vital you sign your C4L Fax Authorization Form IMMEDIATELY!

    Together, you and I can stop Harry Reid from destroying the Senate filibuster.


    Fax Authorization Form:click here

    Sounds good. I'm not a big fan of runaway government so if this makes it more accountable then I'm in. I don't like the idea of my rights being stampeded by statists. If you feel the same way then sign the authorization form.
