Tell Secretary Kerry to open the Keystone pipeline

From the Institute for 21st Century Energy:

Dear Friend,

The clock is ticking, and the Keystone XL comment period deadline is fast approaching!

We only have 7 days left to tell Secretary Kerry and the Administration that the Keystone XL pipeline is vital to the national interest and your voice can make the difference.

Seven Days Left To Tell Secretary Kerry We Need Keystone XL

Take 60 seconds to email Secretary Kerry and share these key numbers with him:

42,100: The number of direct, indirect, and induced jobs during construction if Keystone XL is approved.

65%: Percentage of Americans favor building the Keystone XL pipeline (Pew Research Center, Sept. 2013).

$3.4B: How much the Keystone XL pipeline on its own will contribute to U.S. GDP.

$1.6B: The amount of employee earnings from construction that will occur in non-Keystone states. Because goods and services supporting the Keystone XL project will come from around the country, 80% of employee earnings will occur in other states, making the positive impact on our economy truly national.

After more than five years of study, enough is enough. The benefits of building the Keystone XL pipeline are clear. We can't let the Administration delay this project any longer.

It is time to approve the Keystone XL pipeline and put American jobs and energy security as the #1 priority.

Next Friday March 7th is the last day to send comments to Secretary Kerry. While there's still time, take a moment TODAY to click here and send an email to the State Department.


Thank you for your help.

HR 3865 clears the House,we still need to oppose IRS Regulation IR-2013-92

From Campaign For Liberty:

I know I’ve already written you several times this week about the Internal Revenue Service's proposed new rule prohibiting Campaign for Liberty from informing you how your elected officials and other candidates for office stand on important issues.

I am pleased to let you know, that, today, thanks to your efforts, the U.S. House passed the “Stop Targeting Beliefs by the IRS Act,” HR 3865, which blocks this draconian new rule.

I’ll have more details to share with you about this victory and our plans to get this bill passed in the Senate later this week.

But first,submit your official comments to the IRS letting them know you oppose their attempts to muzzle Campaign for Liberty.

The official comment period closes tomorrow so I need you to act right away!

If you’re not sure what to write, here is some suggested language:


I oppose IRS’s proposed regulation Guidance for Tax-Exempt Social Welfare Organizations on Candidate-Related Political Activities because these regulations violate my First Amendment rights to receive information regarding how my elected officials and candidates for office stand on important issues.

By restricting organizations like Campaign for Liberty from sending out communications mentioning an elected official who is also a candidate for office 60 days before an election, this rule limits Campaign for Liberty’s ability to inform me of legislation considered by Congress 60 days before Election Day.

Muzzling Campaign for Liberty this way this limits my ability to directly affect the policy and legislative process. I am at a loss as to how the American people’s “social welfare” is advanced by an IRS rule making it more difficult for American citizens to affect and understand public policy.


Under federal law, the IRS must collect, analyze, and publish public comments before issuing a major rule, so this is the perfect opportunity for Campaign for Liberty members to make their voices heard.

The IRS will have to publicly admit that the American people oppose their attempt to protect incumbent politicians by prohibiting Campaign for Liberty from letting you know where your elected officials stand on issues like Audit the Fed, ending NSA spying, and repealing Obamacare at the very time politicians tend to listen most closely to the folks back home.

Defeating this rule is vital if Campaign for Liberty is going to remain effective in putting heat on politicians.

So please, make your voice heard by letting the IRS know you oppose their gag rule.

Then if you can, please chip in to help Campaign for Liberty’s efforts to defeat this rule with contrition of $50, $30, $20, or even $10.

Thank you for your prompt action.

In Liberty,

Norman Singleton
Vice President of Policy

P.S. The IRS public comment period on the IRS’s new rule prohibiting Campaign for Liberty from sharing information regarding how your elected officials stand on issues like Audit the Fed, NSA spying, and repealing Obamacare 60 days before the election closes tomorrow.

Under federal law, the IRS is required to collect, analyze, and report on these comments, so this provides us with a great opportunity to show the Senate and the Administration that the American people oppose this rule!

Flooding the IRS with comments is the next step in our efforts!

So please click here to let the IRS know you oppose this rule.

Tell the IRS to leave our civil liberties alone

From The National Right To Work Committee:

You have the opportunity to stand up and push back against Barack Obama's abuse of power.

But you only have until tomorrow's deadline, so I'm asking you to act right now.

You see, Barack Obama fears you.

Even more, he fears you joining up with other like-minded citizens to oppose his agenda to remake American labor law and expand union-boss power over workers and the entire economy.

Don't believe me?

Just look at what Vice President Joe Biden said about us when Obama sent him to speak to a crowd of United Auto Workers (UAW) union operatives.

"I never thought I'd be back refighting after all this time in my career the wave of Right to Work efforts," Biden said, citing the National Right to Work Committee's recent success passing Right to Work laws in Michigan and Indiana.

So now they have a plan to shut you up.

As you know, the Obama Administration hasn't been shy about ramming union-boss power grabs through the federal bureaucracy, especially the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

Now, they're trying that backhanded strategy at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

The proposed regulation would target us for IRS harassment for making public communications within 60 days of a general election (or 30 days of a primary election) that simply mention a candidate's name.

Unsurprisingly, these new regulations won't affect some of the largest contributors to Barack Obama and his allies in Congress – Big Labor.

That's why I need your help.

Here's what I need you to do:

First, please click here to go to the IRS comments page.

Second, add your comments to the tens of thousands who have already voiced their opposition to these infringing regulations.

And if you need help on what to say, please feel free to copy the text below:

I am steadfastly against the proposed regulations that directly violate the First Amendment of the Constitution which ensures the Federal Government shall not infringe on our Freedom of Speech.

These regulations would strip citizens' right to send organized communication within weeks of an election and prohibit identifying a candidate or political party who supports Obama's forced unionism agenda.

I urge the Federal Government to drop Regulation IR-2013-92 and its unconstitutional restrictions on citizen organizations, and to cease using tax laws to suppress political speech.

Please do not wait.

The deadline to comment ends tomorrow, and I need your help.

There's simply no bigger prize for Big Labor than bringing your National Right to Work Committee to its knees, whether they do the job through the IRS, FEC, Department of Labor, or other piece of the biased Obama bureaucracy.

Make no mistake, this scheme is about keeping voters like you in the dark about politicians' forced unionism voting records and positions.

And unless you and I act IMMEDIATELY, this plan could come to fruition.

So please click here to make your voice heard and demand the IRS drop these infringing regulations.

I hope you take action right away.

Sincerely,

Mark Mix

Open up the Keystone pipeline

From Fueling Jobs:

Obama said he wants to “slash the bureaucracy and streamline the permitting process for key projects.”

This promise is straight out of his State of the Union (SOTU) address from last month.

He wants more “shovel-ready” construction jobs to put Americans back to work.

Well my friend, projects don’t get more “shovel-ready” or more beneficial to America than the Keystone Pipeline Extension.

And right now Obama has the power to authorize all the necessary permits with a stroke of a pen.

So why didn’t he mention Keystone XL by name in his SOTU address?

I’ll tell you in just a minute, but first let me back up and tell you why the Keystone Project is so important to America.

The Keystone Pipeline Extension is a massive project to bring newly accessed oil reserves down from Canada to refineries in Texas.

The construction of the Pipeline Extension alone will generate thousands of jobs in the heartland of America.

And it will create thousands more permanent positions that will stay with us.

Secondly, it will give the U.S. a new, strong source of North American energy -- further protecting us from overseas disruptions.

And most important for you and me: It will directly lower the price we pay at the pump.

It is the single greatest option America has to lower the gas and energy prices that have risen sky-high under the Obama Administration.

And that’s why Obama didn’t mention Keystone in his SOTU address.

He doesn’t want to sign the permits to authorize it.

Two years ago -- even with gas prices at a whopping $4.00 per gallon -- President Obama OUTRAGED the overwhelming majority of the American people by stopping the Keystone Pipeline the first time.

You see, cheaper gasoline is bad news for “Gang Green” and their radical energy agenda.

Obama has already invested billions of our tax dollars into so-called green energy companies under his administration.

Companies like the infamous Solyndra.

But even with Obama’s massive subsidiaries, these experimental (and EXPENSIVE) companies can’t really compete with natural energy sources like oil and gas.

That’s why Obama is looking for any excuse he can find to kill the Keystone and shore up his Gang Green buddies.

And he is running out of options.

The State Department just released their Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) report showing once again that there is no conclusive threat to the environment from this project.

So it’s time for you and me to apply pressure directly to the White House before the Official Comment Period ends next week.

Fuelingjobs.com has prepared a petition supporting the Keystone Pipeline Extension special for President Obama, which you can sign by clicking right here.

Obama’s opposition to Keystone is nothing more than crony capitalism at its absolute worst.

That’s why your signed petition is so critical before the Official Comment Period ends next week.

The good news is, national support is on our side.

Polls show Americans are FED UP with the radical environmentalists’ chaining of our fragile economy under regulatory lock and key.

So will President Obama KILL Keystone once again and risk our wrath?

It’s up to you and me to find out.

But our window to collect and deliver petitions is only 30 days long... and that window is almost closed.

That’s why we don’t have any time to lose.

Please don’t set this email aside, or say to yourself “I’ll get to it later.”

By the time you do get back to it, it will be too late.

That’s why I need you to take action right now.

And then, if you can, please consider making a generous donation to help fund FuelingJobs.com.

Obama has a long, disastrous track record of siding against real American energy in order to appease Gang Green.

Just a few months ago Obama’s EPA actually outlawed most of the wood-burning stoves in the U.S.!

So you and I can be sure that he wants to kill the Keystone Pipeline.

And his best excuse for doing so will be to say “I heard from lots of Americans, and they don’t want it.”

You better bet the radicals are gathering all the letters they can... so we need to gather even more to tip the scales in our favor.

Your signed petition will show Obama definitively that you will not tolerate any denial of the Keystone permits.

With Obamacare proving to be one big disaster, the president can’t afford any more unpopular decisions.

If he knows you want this pipeline, he’ll be forced to approve it.

So please, click here right now to sign your Keystone Pipeline Petition!

Then please consider chipping in a generous donation for as much as you can afford.

$500, $250, $100 or even $50 or $25. Any amount will be greatly appreciated.

We don’t have much time to reach America... but every dollar allows us to do that much more.

Obama’s solution to every problem is more government.

Kinks in the American health care system? Burden the nation with the expensive and useless Obamacare.

Green energy can’t hack it in the open market? Prop them up with tax-dollar subsidies.

Americans out of work? Create pointless “busy-work” construction jobs -- paid for, once again, with your tax-dollars.

You and I both know the best way to get economic sectors back on track is with hard work, ingenuity and private investments.

And that’s just what the Keystone Pipeline represents.

A chance to put Americans back to work and lower fuel and energy costs across the country.

All without the U.S. government spending a dime of your hard earned money.

Right now, the White House is gathering comments from U.S. citizens, which Obama will take into account before deciding whether or not to approve the Keystone Pipeline.

But radical environmentalist activists from all over the country have set a goal of generating ONE MILLION comments to KILL the Keystone Pipeline!

So it’s up to you and me to beat the radical environmentalists at their own game.

Just click here to send a clear message straight to President Obama.

Every voice matters in this fight.

And once you have signed, please consider chipping in with a donation -- $50, $25, or even $5 or $10. Any amount will be a tremendous help in our efforts.

Sincerely,

Geoff Goble
Chairman, FuelingJobs.com
P.S. We only have days left to send your comments directly to the White House.

If Obama doesn’t hear from enough pro-energy Americans, he’s likely to kill the Keystone Pipeline once and for all.

That’s why I’m counting on you to send a loud-and-clear message to Barack Obama that there will be a political price to pay for blocking construction of the Keystone Pipeline.

Click here to sign your petition DEMANDING President Obama approve the critical Keystone Pipeline Project.

And if you could make a generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50, $35 -- or whatever you can afford -- I'd really appreciate it.


Somehow I don't trust contacting Obama alone since he can't be trusted. I suggest contacting your elected representatives in both the House and the Senate as well and let them know you support opening the Keystone pipeline. A little Congressional pressure should help Obama give the green light for the opening of the Keystone pipeline. If you want to pay European type gasoline prices then do nothing. However if you want to drop the price of gasoline to reasonable levels then sign the petition and contact Congress. Your wallet will thank you.

Rein in the IRS support HR 3865

From Campaign For Liberty:

Last week, I wrote you about the IRS’ proposed rule that would subject Campaign for Liberty and like-minded groups to IRS audits and other government harassment if we make:

Communications that are made within 60 days of a general election (or within 30 days of a primary election) and clearly identify a candidate or political party." [IRS Regulation IR-2013-92]

In other words, this rule would empower the IRS to muzzle us right at the time people are most interested in learning about their elected officials’ positions!

I also let you know about HR 3865, the Stop Targeting Beliefs by the IRS Act, which would halt this rule’s implementation.

Tomorrow, the House will vote on HR 3865.

That’s why it is vital you call Congress immediately and urge your representative to vote for HR 3865.

You can reach your representative here

If enacted, the IRS rule could even limit Campaign for Liberty’s ability to simply ask you to contact Congress regarding upcoming votes occurring within 60 days of a general election or 30 days of a primary, since we would have to mention your elected officials’ names.

Defeating such a blatantly unconstitutional move by the IRS should be easy.

But I’m confident quite a few representatives and senators are hoping our efforts fail.

Many politicians in D.C. would love nothing more than to stop grassroots activists from taking action and holding them accountable on issues such as Audit the Fed, standing up to the NSA, and more – if they’re allowed to get away with it.

You can see why they might sit idly by and let this nightmare for the grassroots take effect, so it’s vital we counter by loudly making our voices heard while we still can.

They may think it’s politically expedient to let us be silenced.

Let’s show them they won’t get away with not acting.

Please call Congress NOW and tell your representative to vote for HR 3865 and stop the IRS from muzzling you!

And if you can, please chip in toward Campaign for Liberty’s efforts to fight back with a contribution of $50, $40, $30, or $20 today.

Thank you in advance for taking action.

In Liberty,

Norm Singleton
Vice President of Policy

P.S. Tomorrow, Congress will vote on the Stop Targeting Beliefs by the IRS Act (HR 3865).

HR 3865 blocks the IRS’s proposed rule prohibiting Campaign for Liberty and like-minded groups from sharing information regarding how your elected officials stand on issues such as Audit the Fed, NSA spying, and replacing ObamaCare within 60 days of a general election and 30 days of a primary — the very time most people are interested in learning about their elected officials’ positions!

I’m sure many politicians would love nothing more than to silence C4L members and other grassroots activists when it matters most.

That is why you must let them know you are watching and expect them to fight for the First Amendment – and that you won’t let them off the hook for sitting idly by.

So please call Congress today and urge your representative to vote for HR 3865!

From government spying to gun control

From Citizens For Self Governance:

What you think you need to know is different from what the government says you need to know.

But Americans have been fighting – and winning! – in the battle against government overreach.

America's ruling class has been experiencing more pushback than usual lately. Read three examples here.

Mark Meckler has another, very powerful story from Connecticut. Very quietly -- thanks to a biased media -– tens of thousands of American citizens delivered this message to the government."No we won't!"


The gay mafia threatens schools.

From Public Advocate:

The Radical Homosexuals infiltrating the United States Congress have a plan:

Indoctrinate an entire generation of American children with pro-homosexual propaganda and eliminate traditional values from American society.

Their ultimate dream is to create a new America based on sexual promiscuity in which the family values you and I cherish are long forgotten.

I hate to admit it, but if they pass the deceptively named "Student Non-Discrimination Act," that's exactly what they'll do.

Better named the "Homosexual Classrooms Act," its chief advocate in Congress is Rep. Jared Polis D-CO), himself an open homosexual and radical activist.

And it's dangerously close to becoming the law of the land.

Last session, the Homosexual Classrooms Act had 170 co-sponsors in the House and 39 in the Senate.

And with their 2012 Election Day victories, the Homosexual Lobby picked up where they left off in the new Congress.

That's why I need you to act quickly -- right away -- to protect our nation's youth.

I have prepared the official "Protect Our Children's Innocence" Petition to Congress for you to sign.

Please click here to sign it right away so I can rush it to the Capitol with thousands more.


You and I must defeat this disastrous legislation.

You see, the Homosexual Classrooms Act contains a laundry list of anti-family provisions that will:

***Require schools to teach appalling homosexual acts so "homosexual students" don't feel "singled out" during already explicit sex-ed classes;
***Spin impressionable students in a whirlwind of sexual confusion and misinformation, even peer pressure to "experiment" with the homosexual "lifestyle;"
***Exempt homosexual students from punishment for propositioning, harassing, or even sexually assaulting their classmates, as part of their specially-protected right to "freedom of self-expression;"
***Force private and even religious schools to teach a pro-homosexual curriculum and purge any reference to religion if a student claims it creates a "hostile learning environment" for homosexual students.

And that's just the beginning of the Homosexual Lobby's radical agenda.

In fact, it will set them up to ram through their entire perverted vision for a homosexual America.

My friend, I'm sure I don't have to tell you this is not a fight we can afford to lose.

That's why Public Advocate is leading the fight against this immoral legislation.

But I need your help to do it.

You see, it's becoming harder and harder to send my message to pro-Family advocates.

The radical Homosexual Lobby is working day and night to censor Public Advocate's warning about the Homosexual Classrooms Act.

That's why, along with your signed petition, I need you to seriously consider chipping in a special contribution to Public Advocate.

A contribution of just $20 will enable me to email 1,000 potential new supporters.

This is a battle for the survival of American values and the fact is, there's no time to waste.

The Homosexual Classrooms Act will turn America's schools into indoctrination centers and its classrooms into social laboratories -- and they're pulling out all the stops to pass it.

You see, they've disguised the bill's wicked purpose behind an innocent name: "The Student Non-Discrimination Act."

The Homosexual Lobby knows that if the public knew the truth about their radical agenda, they'll have no hope of success.

And they're dangerously close to ramming their perversity into law.

During the last Congress, the Homosexual Classrooms Act had 170 co-sponsors in the House and 39 in the Senate.

You can bet the Homosexual Lobby will try even harder with the new Congress.

You and I need to take action right now to stop the growing momentum of this disastrous legislation.

I've developed a massive program to launch the second they try to push this bill through in the new Congress -- mail, email, phones, and even radio and TV ads.

But that's only possible with your support...

None of these things are cheap. In fact, running a program of the size necessary to defeat this bill can get quite expensive especially with increases in postage and printing costs.

That's why I ask for your generous contribution. In addition to your signed "Protect Our Children's Innocence" Petition, will you contribute $250, $100, $50 or even just $35 or even $20 right away?

$250 will allow me to email more than 10,000 potential new supporters. $100 or even $50 would mean 5,000 or 2,500 new chances to alert more Americans to the threat of the Homosexual Classrooms Act.

Every dollar counts in this fight. Even if you can only chip in $10 or $20, it will mean 500 or 1,000 new emails.

This agenda is nothing new.

In fact, other countries like Britain are already experimenting with this kind of legislation, such as mandating public schools inject pro-homosexual content into every aspect of education.

Word problems in math classes are now to include homosexual characters. History classes will document the "civil rights" struggle against the "oppressive" pro-family establishment.

And it's even started to infiltrate our state governments.

In parts of California, lawmakers "require schools to portray lesbians, homosexuals, transsexuals ... as positive role models to children in all public schools."

Sexual deviants being held up as models of virtue?

If that makes you as sick as it makes me, you simply must join me in this battle for America's children.

Please sign the "Protect Our Children's Innocence" Petition to Congress and then send a generous contribution of at least $20 right away.

Your action will make all the difference.

And if all that wasn't enough to convince you that action must be taken immediately, there's more.

Many say that there will always be private schools and traditional homeschool families to teach traditional values to the next generation.

But the truth is, this radical agenda is NOT restricted to public schools.

Kevin Jennings, Obama's former "Safe Schools Czar," has clearly stated that "every school, public, private or parochial has an obligation" to teach a pro-homosexual curriculum.

In fact, Jennings denounced school choice programs as "very dangerous" because they make it much harder to impose the Homosexual Agenda on our kids.

"Lord forbid a Baptist or Mormon school," he added.

Jennings' ultimate goal is for all curriculum in "kindergarten, and first grade, and second grade – every grade" be infused with a pro-homosexual slant.

Traditional values will be squashed and demonized as old fashioned or out-of-date, or even as bigotry.

You and I cannot let them succeed.

Please sign the "Protect Our Children's Innocence" Petition to Congress I've prepared for you right away.

And along with your petition, would you please send a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35 or $20.

The Homosexual Lobby has done their worst to censor my message about the Homosexual Classrooms Act -- and it's absolutely critical that I send more emails.

If you contribute as little as $20, I will be able to email 1,000 new people, maybe even more!

You see, every dollar counts in this fight so even if you can only chip in $10 or $20, it will make a significant difference.

Thank you so much for all you have done.

Sincerely,

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

P.S. Radical homosexuals in Congress have a plan to indoctrinate our children in schools -- both public and private.

But Public Advocate is taking a stand. Will you join me?

Please sign the "Protect Our Children's Innocence" Petition to Congress I've attached.

And please, along with your petition, would you please send a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35 right away?

Every $20 will allow me to contact up to a 1,000 potential new pro-Family supporters -- or more!

Stop Hillary PAC donations almost to the goal

From Stop Hillary PAC:

Stop Hillary PAC

I know you've been bombarded with emails lately, but there's a reason why:

Hillary Clinton and her Super PAC has just announced a devastating 2.75 million dollar fundraising haul -- the most of ANY presidential candidate.

Just three days from now is our FIRST major fundraising deadline of 2014 -- but, as of 8 AM this morning, we're still $9,852 short of our targeted goal. Can you help us close the gap?

Rush an urgent donation of $5 or more before MIDNIGHT tonight >>

You see, for at least the third time in the last year, Hillary Clinton's allies have announced they raised more money than anyone else. And worse, late last night I heard from a DC political insider -- Hillary's team is already on their way to record setting fundraising numbers for 2014.

But there is good news as well.

Our campaign to counter their work and defeat Hillary is taking shape. So far Stop Hillary has been able to:

>>> Launch a hard hitting TV and Web video highlighting Hillary's many moral, legal, and ethical failings. Our ads have been featured on CNN, Fox news and other media outlets. >>> Launch an unending campaign to remind the American people of the four Americans dead in Benghazi - all on Hillary's watch when all she could say was, "what difference does it make."

>>> File a federal election law violation complaint against Hillary and her allies. We have a team of lawyers working on the legal case that could be Hillary's undoing.

>>> Wage war against Hillary and Barbara Walters for her ridiculous piece claiming Hillary was the most interesting person of 2014. Walters and Hillary were thoroughly embarrassed by the outcry of thousands who signed the petition.

>>> AND Successfully bird-dog Hillary and her support for liberal candidates. Where Hillary's spending her time and money supporting liberal candidates for office, Stop Hillary has spent thousands opposing her hand-picked puppets.

We're running a real grassroots campaign, made up of average Americans like you who want nothing more than to restore America to greatness. And, given the chance, we will win -- if we can just get enough support from people across the country like you.

Can I count on you to chip in $5 or whatever you can before midnight tonight?

We can defeat Hillary. We can restore America to greatness.

Now we need you to make it happen.

Please, chip in $5 right away before midnight tonight >>

In Freedom,

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

P.S. If we stop now, our effort to keep Hillary out of the White House will fail.Give $5 before MIDNIGHT to STOP HILLARY.

Protect the Fourth Amendment

From Rand 2016:

Thanks to your outrage forcing Congress to put pressure on the President to rein in the out-of-control NSA domestic spying program, President Obama was compelled to address this abuse of the Fourth Amendment.

But in what has become typical for President Obama, fancy rhetoric is utilized to cover up the same disastrous policies.

The collection of emails, phone calls and text messages rolls on but under a different configuration.

That sounds like "If you like your privacy, you can keep it."

But looking at this administration’s track record, "trust us" gets thrown out the window

Starting a Tea Party organization is "wrong" and singles you out for harassment.

We’ve already seen the outright smearing of law-abiding gun owners and the derision of those who "cling" to their guns and religion.

We see the Obama administration covering up Benghazi, then tapping Susan Rice – who helped mislead the American people in the wake of that outrage – for a promotion.

And to make matters worse, President Obama is demanding we trust him when he claims lawyers who work for the executive branch will construct safeguards to protect our rights.

You and I know the fox can't guard the henhouse.

This is madness and someone needs to slam the breaks on policies that stomp all over the Fourth Amendment.

This is a defining moment for our country. Is any politician above law?

That's why I hope you'll agree to stand with me by fighting back against President Obama trampling all over the Constitution.

So please sign your "Fourth Amendment Protection Act" petition right away.

I need your help to crank up the heat on my colleagues to push this legislation through Congress.

And after you sign your petition, I hope you'll agree to make your most generous contribution to help me mobilize millions of Americans through email, direct mail, online and social media ads to join this first-of-its-kind effort to stand up to President Obama and tell him "enough is enough!"

In liberty,

Senator Rand Paul

P.S. After sign your petition; please make your most generous contribution to help me mobilize millions of Americans to this historic fight.

Obama and the new world order



My jaw dropped when I watched this video. You'll see what I mean.

Trouble in Turkey

From Fight For The Future:

Thousands have taken to the streets in Turkey to protest censorship, but they've been brutally suppressed. It's time for the Internet to show the Turkish people we have their back.

Turkey’s Internet is already heavily restricted -- at last estimate there are already over 40,000 websites being blocked including major video sharing sites like YouTube and Vimeo, blogging sites like WordPress, and a huge variety of other sites that have been critical of the government.1

An attack on the open Internet anywhere is an attack on the open Internet everywhere. We can’t sit idly by while any government so blatantly attacks Internet freedom.

Block the unfair Card Check bill

From The National Right To Work Committee:

"I owe these unions."

President Barack Obama couldn't have stated it any more clearly.

And after spending an estimated BILLION dollars to re-elect Barack Obama and maintain control of the U.S. Senate, the union bosses couldn't agree more.

They're wasting no time demanding PAYBACK.

Top AFL-CIO union boss Richard Trumka has already made clear that he expects Big Labor's Card Check Forced Unionism Bill to be a top priority in Obama's second term.

Not only that, Trumka threatened to use his forced-dues political warchest to oust any member of Congress in 2014 who stands in his way.

That's why it's vital you sign the petition below putting yourself squarely on record OPPOSED to the union bosses' Card Check Forced Unionism Bill -- and the rest of Big Labor's agenda -- IMMEDIATELY.

Since Barack Obama doesn't have to face the voters again for re-election, the union bosses understand this may be their last -- and best -- opportunity to make Card Check Forced Unionism the law of the land.

That's why it's vital you act today!

As you know, if "Card Check" passes, workers would no longer be able to vote for or against union boss "representation" in a secret ballot election.

Instead, the union bosses would intimidate workers one-on-one -- or three-on-one -- into signing so-called "union authorization cards."

And, of course, Big Labor has yet another ticking time bomb hidden in the "Card Check" legislation.

If the union bosses can drag out negotiations with an employer past 90 days by making outrageous demands, Obama Administration bureaucrats will have the power to use this so-called "problem" as an excuse to write a new labor contract and force its terms and conditions of employment upon those workers.

So you see, not only does Big Labor want to strip workers of the right to a secret ballot but also of the right to vote on their own contracts as well!

Can you imagine the kind of damage that would do to our already-fragile economy?

I know I can.

In fact, some folks ask me from time to time, "Senator, how could the President and Congress even consider a bill like 'Card Check' with the economy the way it is?"

What I tell them may be hard to stomach, but it's the truth.

If "Card Check" passes, it would mean billions more dollars for the union bosses' coffers.

Billions more that will be spent on politics.

We're talking permanent political power.

I hate to say it, but that's why the union bosses, Barack Obama and Harry Reid aren't going to let up one bit.

And with too many Republicans scared that standing on any principle will bring another attack in the media, I'm very concerned that what may happen.

That's why it's important you sign the petition to oppose Card Check Forced Unionism IMMEDIATELY.

Should "Card Check" pass, this dangerous power grab would:

***Force millions of additional working Americans to pay union dues under the threat of losing their jobs, filling Big Labor coffers with hundreds of millions of forced-dues dollars;
***Dramatically increase the wasteful work rules, hate-the-boss propaganda, slowdowns and bitter strikes that shut down businesses and destroy jobs, ensuring that even more plants are closed and more jobs are shipped overseas or lost forever;
***Enable Big Labor to pump even more campaign cash into the coffers of its radical, tax and spend politicians who, in turn, will look for even greater ways to increase the union bosses' forced-dues empire.
That's why I'm counting on your help IMMEDIATELY.

After failing to pass most of Big Labor's agenda -- including "Card Check" -- during his first term, President Obama is anxious to payback his Big Labor benefactors.

As he told the former Russian President, "I'll have more flexibility after the election.

And you can be sure the union bosses are going to double-down in their efforts to make sure "Card Check" happens during Obama's second term.

So we can't wait. We have to mobilize NOW.

The good news is, the National Right to Work Committee has developed a massive plan to stop the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill dead in its tracks.

Grassroots mail. Phone calls. Newspaper, radio and TV ads.

But it's all VERY expensive -- especially since everything is "last minute."

That's why it's vital you act TODAY!

And that's why, in addition to your signed petition, I hope you'll agree to make a generous contribution to help stop the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill.

After signing your petition, please make a generous contribution of of $500, $250, $100 or $35.

This is not a battle you and I can afford to lose.

I'm convinced that with the Committee's plan to mobilize Americans against the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill, you and I can stop this bill -- and the rest of Big Labor's agenda -- dead in its tracks.

But we don't have much time.

Please sign this petition and make a generous contribution of $500, $250, $100 or $35 -- or whatever you can -- to help defeat Big Labor's Card Check Forced Unionism Bill.

It's vital you act TODAY!

Sincerely,

Rand Paul, M.D.
U.S. Senator

P.S. When Barack Obama was re-elected in 2012, top AFL-CIO union boss Richard Trumka was already thinking ahead for this year’s midterm elections and threatening to take out any members of Congress who opposed the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill.

That's why there's not a moment to waste!

Please sign this petition demanding your Congressman and Senators OPPOSE Big Labor's Card Check Forced Unionism Bill before it's too late.

After signing your petition, please also make a generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $35, or whatever you can afford, to the National Right to Work Committee -- IMMEDIATELY!

Block obamacare and gun control

Should I keep up the fight to repeal ObamaCare?

Or maybe you want me to focus on stopping President Obama's agenda of gun control and immigration reform without border security?

Is winning at the ballot box in 2014 your top priority?

Or Should I keep fighting on all fronts?

It's vital you let me know what fight is more important to you in 2014.

And I need to know if you'll stand with me at the grassroots level while I lead the fight inside Congress and on the campaign trail for fellow conservatives.

You see, the Senate will return from recess soon.

I hope fighting on all fronts is most important to you.

You see, I'm just one Senator.

It's folks like you working at the grassroots level that make the real difference.

Because you stood with me, you and I were able to score victories over President Obama's Big Government agenda in 2013 like stopping his national gun registration scheme and forcing his administration to back down when they claimed the right to target American citizens on U.S. soil.

But unless I can count on your support and generosity, I'm afraid the victories of 2013 will morph into defeats in 2014.

So please fill out your "Stand with Rand Directive" right away.

After you fill out your directive, please make your most generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or $35 so I can mobilize Americans to fight for our conservative priorities.

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

Thank you for all that you do.


In Liberty,

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY)

P.S. Today I'm counting on your advice.

President Obama is determined to change the subject from ObamaCare by ramming even more Big Government power grabs through Congress.

Not only that, but if you and I want to emerge victorious at the ballot box in 2014, we must start fighting back now.

So please fill out your "Stand with Rand Directive" and make your most generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or $35, $20 or at least $10 IMMEDIATELY.

Defeat the Internet Tax Mandate

From Campaign For Liberty:

Harry Reid and big-spending, high-tax statists in BOTH parties have already RAMMED the National Internet Tax Mandate through the Senate.

And without C4L members' continued action, it could be gaveled through the House and sent to Barack Obama’s desk for his guaranteed signature.

So it’s absolutely critical you sign the petition I've made up for you DEMANDING Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor KILL the National Internet Tax Mandate in the House.

I'll give you the link shortly, but first let me explain exactly why this is so important...

Currently, because of the Founders' vision for our country, states are "laboratories" - free to set their own tax policies.

High-tax, big-spending, highly regulatory state governments send businesses and citizens alike fleeing across state lines in search of more liberty.

But under the National Internet Tax Mandate scheme, the statists are setting the stage to bring it all to a crashing halt.

Under the National Internet Tax Mandate:

*** All Americans would pay more for the “privilege” of shopping online, as big-spending governors of BOTH parties work with the federal government to implement the Mandate.

Big-spending governors are running their states into bankruptcy, and - instead of reducing spending - they want Congress to force YOU to bail them out with Internet sales tax revenue!

*** Tax collectors in one state would now be free to pursue retailers across state lines.

For example, if a customer in New York makes a purchase from an online retailer in Texas, that retailer MUST collect New York's exorbitant sales taxes and send them to New York's tax collection agencies;

*** New and higher taxes would CRUSH economic growth and set the stage for massive new regulations that threaten the very existence of the Internet.

Make no mistake.

This is all bad enough on its face.

But it's hardly the end of it.

You and I both know, under the guise of "national security," establishment bureaucrats are already feverishly looking for new ways to trace, track, and register all Americans' online activity.

What you read. What you buy. What videos you watch. What you write about THEM.

Now the one-world socialists at the United Nations want in on the action, as well.

In fact, the U.N. has already drafted a new "Telecommunications Treaty" to impose restrictive regulations, global CENSORSHIP, and a massive new tax on all Internet operations.

If ratified by the United States Senate, the United Nations' Treaty could give control of the Internet to U.N. bureaucrats.

Ultimately, the U.N. hopes to use this scheme to take a tax bite out of the TRILLIONS of dollars exchanging hands via Internet commerce - money that will make the U.N. a true world government.

And this National Internet Tax Mandate is playing right into their hands.

That's why it's so critical you sign your No Internet Tax petition and make your most generous contribution of $100, $50, or $35 to C4L IMMEDIATELY.

Even if you can only chip in $20 or $10, it will make a tremendous difference.

Just like the Wall Street bailouts and the "deal" over the debt ceiling during the so-called "government shutdown," this National Internet Tax Mandate is "bipartisan" to its core.

And statists in BOTH parties are determined to RAM this scheme into law.

Governors from all over the country who literally CANNOT wait to get more tax money are busy bending the ears of Congress.

And with big spenders in BOTH parties lining up in support of increasing government control over the Internet, I’m afraid this legislation - or some sort of so-called "compromise" - could make it through the House unless you act today.

Will you stand by while the big taxers grab yet more tax dollars from hardworking Americans?

Do you simply shrug your shoulders at the thought of United Nations global socialists shutting down the free flow of information worldwide?

Or will you help me FIGHT BACK?

Please take a moment to sign your petition DEMANDING Bob Goodlatte, Eric Cantor, and John Boehner kill the National Internet Tax IMMEDIATELY.

And if you can, please make your most generous contribution to C4L TODAY.

Your generosity will help me alert hundreds of thousands of Americans to this critical fight and stop the National Internet Tax Mandate.

C4L will use mail, email, and hard-hitting Internet ads - and even newspaper, radio, and TV ads, if necessary.

And with the fight going on right now, this won't be cheap.

But it will be what it takes to win.

During the Senate fight over the National Internet Tax Mandate, Campaign for Liberty generated phone calls and thousands of petitions in opposition to taxing the Internet.

When the fight began, the statists thought they could ram their bill through the Senate with as many as 90 votes.

Capitol Hill insiders have told me and my staff that Campaign for Liberty's efforts were the key to changing the minds of many senators and making sure the bill passed in the Senate with far fewer votes than expected - greatly helping stall the bill's momentum.

If you and I can generate this type of massive pressure on the U.S. House, I'm confident we can DEFEAT the statists' attempt to get more of your money through the Internet.

So in addition to signing your petition, won't you please agree to your most generous contribution of $100, $50, or $35 IMMEDIATELY?

Even if all you can do is chip in $10 or $20 to this fight, please do so right away.

There's no time to waste.

In Liberty,

John Tate
President

P.S. Members of BOTH parties in Congress are working to unleash a new National Internet Tax Mandate.

If passed, the National Internet Tax Mandate would hand the federal government massive new controls over state tax policies, setting the stage for government at all levels to take another helping of your money via the Internet.

That's why it's critical you sign the petition DEMANDING House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, House Speaker John Boehner, and Majority Leader Eric Cantor kill the National Internet Tax Mandate. And please make your most generous contribution of $100, $50, or $35 to C4L IMMEDIATELY.

Even if all you can do is chip in $10 or $20 to this fight, please do so right away.

Stop the IRS from prohibiting free speech

From The National League of Taxpayers:

We don't have much time, so I need you to act quickly.

The Obama administration is gearing up to leverage the power of the IRS to introduce a new regulation which will SHUT DOWN free speech.

IRS [Regulation IR-2013-92] will subject your National League of Taxpayers to IRS audits and harassment if we publish:


Communications that are made within 60 days of a general election (or within 30 days of a primary election)and clearly identify a candidate or political party.

[IRS Regulation IR-2013-92]


In other words: No public scrutiny by organized citizen groups before an election -- which would prevent me from communicating with you during election season.

And in less than two weeks, your chance to comment on these new regulations will end.

That's why it's critical you make your voice heard and sign your Taxpayer Freedom of Speech Petition right away.

We will flood the IRS office with you and your fellow NLT supporters petitions, letting them know you oppose this unconstitutional attempt to silence free speech.

As you know, the National League of Taxpayers will expose the voting record of tax-hiking politicians who try and keep you in the dark.

If this new IRS regulation goes into effect,I could go to jail simply for communicating to you the voting record of tax-and-spend politicians.

That's why it's critical you make your voice heard before the comment period ends on February 27.

Our national debt is already over $17 trillion with no sign of slowing down.

In fact, just last week Congress voted to raise the debt ceiling - again.

Now more than ever we must continue to make politicians feel the heat and remind them come election time they WILL pay a price if they vote to raise our taxes.

I'm not going to back down from this fight, but I need to know you are with me.

Please sign your Taxpayer Freedom of Speech Petition right away.

And after you sign, please make an emergency contribution of $10, $25, $50, or whatever you can afford to help us collect more petitions and fight back against Obama's IRS.

Sincerely,

Gary Paumen, President
National League of Taxpayers

P.S. The grass-roots pressure you generate is the key to teaching waffling politicians that there are political consequences to piling tax dollars onto the national debt.

We can't let Obama use the IRS to shelter himself and his tax-and-spend allies from criticism during the election season.

Please return your Taxpayer Freedom of Speech Petition, and chip in $100, $50, $25 or whatever you can afford.


Senator Rand Paul wants to repeal Obamacare and he needs your help

Senator Rand Paul: WHEN WILL OBAMA START CARING?

Just when you thought Obamacare couldn’t get any worse, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reported on Tuesday that the equivalent of 2.5 million jobs will be lost due to Obamacare.

We can’t afford to lose any more jobs.

These numbers are calculated according to how many work hours the CBO estimates will be lost in the coming decade.

Reuters reports, “In its latest U.S. fiscal outlook, the nonpartisan CBO said the health law would lead some workers, particularly those with lower incomes, to limit their hours to avoid losing federal subsidies that Obamacare provides to help pay for health insurance and other healthcare costs.

Reuters continues, “Work hours would be reduced by the equivalent of 2.5 million jobs in 2024, said the agency, which earlier predicted 800,000 fewer full-time jobs by 2021. The bottom line would be a slower rate of growth for employment and compensation in the coming decade, according to the report.”

This is yet another example of the damage Obamacare has continued to inflict since its implementation.

Healthcare premiums have increased for millions. Couple this with high unemployment and it doesn’t look good for those already struggling in this bad economy.

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of this debacle is that critics knew that both employees and employers would have to adjust their hours and hiring practices in order to navigate the pitfalls of this new law.

Just like when the President promised, “If you like your plan you can keep it,” those in the Administration who promised that Obamacare wouldn’t negatively impact the job market couldn’t have been more wrong.

This week’s CBO report proves it.

Some workers will be forced to work fewer hours and will receive less pay, as both employers and employees attempt to avoid parts of the law that impact them negatively.

The new report states, “CBO estimates that the ACA will reduce the total number of hours worked, on net… almost entirely because workers will choose to supply less labor — given the new taxes and other incentives they will face and the financial benefits some will receive.”

The incentives under Obamacare are for both employers and employees to seek government-sponsored benefits as opposed to work.

The way our current system is structured, it will be in their best personal interest for them to do so.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney responded to the lost jobs in this week’s report by saying, “Americans would no longer be trapped in a job just to provide coverage for their families, and would have the opportunity to pursue their dreams.

This CBO report bears that out, and the Republican plan to repeal the ACA would strip those hard-working Americans of that opportunity."

Americans dream of having jobs that give them enough hours to take care of their families, including providing for their healthcare.

Obamacare puts a significant dent in that dream, and Mr. Carney should be ashamed of himself for trying to pretend this disastrous policy is somehow a “choice” for workers.

Obamacare has been many things, but giving Americans more “choice” is not among them. It is a mandate on all of us.

The horribly misnamed Affordable Care Act may go down as one of the worst disruptions of the economy and government intrusions into our personal lives in history.

By every measure—jobs, quality healthcare, the financial burden—this act has not been affordable.

When will this president start caring?

If you care then sign the petition to repeal Obamacare.

Oppose IRS persecution by supporting H.R. 3865

From Campaign For Liberty:

President Obama’s IRS is close to making every statist politician’s greatest wish come true.

As you know, for years, statists have tried to stop groups like Campaign for Liberty from letting you know where your elected officials stand on the most important issues of the day and from holding them accountable for their actions.

But, thanks in large part to strong opposition from C4L, they haven’t been able to get their legislation through Congress.

So the IRS — taking a cue from President Obama — is going to stop waiting for Congress to strip Campaign for Liberty members like you of your First Amendment rights if you join with other Americans to take action.

The IRS has proposed a rule it would enforce that would subject Campaign for Liberty to IRS audits and other government harassment if we make:

Communications that are made within 60 days of a general election (or within 30 days of a primary election) and clearly identify a candidate or political party." [IRS Regulation IR-2013-92]

In other words, the IRS wants to muzzle us right at the time people are most interested in learning about their elected officials’ positions!

Not only would this rule prohibit Campaign for Liberty from informing you of where your elected officials and other candidates for public office stand on important issues, but it would also even prohibit C4L’s state activists from hosting non-partisan public forums to allow the public to question candidates.

And our ability to simply ask you to contact Congress during that time could potentially be severely curtailed, since we would have to mention your elected officials’ names.

We still have time to stop this move, so please sign your Citizen’s Directive to Congress opposing the IRS Gag Rule.

If you and I make our opposition clear to our elected officials – and show just how unpopular these rules are with Americans like you – we can pour the pressure on Congress to act and help turn up the heat on the IRS to drop its attack.

That’s why I would love to send at least 100,000 Directives opposing these regulations.

You and I must send a strong message that regardless of how the IRS acts, we expect Congress to protect our First Amendment rights.

H.R. 3865, the Stop Targeting Beliefs by the IRS Act, would block this rule, and C4L President John Tate submitted testimony to the House Ways and Means Committee earlier this month urging them to pass the bill out of committee, which they did on February 11.

Stopping this rule is vital if our work is to be as effective as possible.

For example, if the IRS rule goes through, Campaign for Liberty will not be able to let you know which representatives and senators sided with the American people to support Audit the Fed, and which ones sided with Harry Reid, Janet Yellen, and the banksters.

And if politicians know that C4L and like-minded groups will be unable to let you know if legislators are defending your rights or to fully mobilize opposition, they will be less likely to stand up to the NSA and the rest of the powerful “national security” bureaucracy.

The list goes on...

You can see why politicians might love to sit idly by and let this nightmare for grassroots activists take effect, so it’s vital we counter by loudly making our voices heard while we still can.

Please sign your Citizen’s Directive against the IRS’ Gag Rule today.

And if you can, please chip in to Campaign for Liberty’s efforts to fight back with a contribution of $50, $40, $30, or $20.

With so many fights currently underway to protect and expand our liberties, and now this latest battle, only your help can allow us to keep going.

If this IRS rule is allowed to take effect, our ability to make progress on our key issues will be crippled.

So please sign your Citizen’s Directive to make sure Congress hears from you and, if you’re able today, pitch in to our efforts with a contribution of $50, $40, $30, or $20!

In Liberty,

Norm Singleton
Vice President of Policy

P.S. The IRS has proposed a new rule that would prohibit Campaign for Liberty from sharing information regarding how your elected officials stand on issues such as Audit the Fed, NSA spying, and replacing ObamaCare 60 days before a general election and 30 days before a primary — the very time most people are interested in learning about their elected officials’ positions.

This rule would even prohibit state C4L activists from hosting non-partisan candidate forums where people could directly question their candidates!

Help us fight back by signing your Citizen’s Directive to Congress opposing this Gag Rule.

And if you can, pitch in to our efforts to stop the rule with a generous contribution of $50, $40, $30, or $20!

The day we fought back was a tremendous success

From Demand Progress:

Tuesday was amazing. Working with scores of organizations, and thousands of sites, and hundreds of thousands of activists, we organized the largest online privacy protest ever.

Nearly 100,000 calls were placed to Congress on that day, melting the phone lines and making it clear that we will persist in the fight to end mass surveillance.

And please share them widely, so the whole world knows just how strong we are when we work together:

On Tuesday we sought to make a dent, while laying a foundation for escalation over the months to come: It was a tremendous success.

We demonstrated that civil society organizations, hundreds of thousands of activists, and major corporations are willing to bring coordinated pressure to bear on lawmakers.

Just a few highlights:

•Scores of organizations from across the political spectrum banded together.
•Thousands of sites urged their visitors to take action.
•Google formally endorsed the USA FREEDOM Act, which would end bulk data collection.
•Twitter tweeted to nearly 30 million people in support.
•Dozens of lawmakers issued statements of support.
•NSA acolyte Senator Dianne Feinstein was on the run from her own constituents.

We will persist, we will escalate, and we will win.

Tell the IRS not to bully conservative groups

From Public Advocate:

On Monday, I wrote to inform you about the latest assault on conservative free speech by Obama's IRS agents and their allies.

Now it's time for action.

It is absolutely critical that you and I inspire as many pro-Family conservatives to speak out before the Federal Register's public comment period ends on February 27th.

So I'm kicking off Public Advocate's petition campaign to tell Obama's IRS that we won't let them silence our values.

I'll give you a link to the petition in a minute, but first I'd like to tell you a little bit more about why this is such a crucial battle with real consequences if we fall short.

If Public Advocate supporters like you sit this fight out on the sidelines, I'm afraid Obama and his IRS operatives will succeed in enforcing IRS Regulation IR-2013-92.

This dangerous new bureaucratic overreach is the latest effort by Obama's IRS designed to squelch conservative groups like your Public Advocate.

IR-2013-92 would prevent Public Advocate -- by using withering financial punishment -- from reaching you and the rest of our pro-Family activists with:

Communications that are made within 60 days of a general election (or within 30 days of a primary election) and clearly identify a candidate or political party" -- even if the communication had nothing to do with an election, or even if it said nothing about electing any candidate to public office.

Preparation or distribution of a voter guide -- even if completely objective, with no preferences for or against any candidates.

Conduct of a voter registration drive -- even if completely objective, with no preference for or against any candidate.

Your Public Advocate -- along with countless other conservative 501(c)(4) groups -- has been a thorn in the side of politicians and bureaucrats.

And that's why they want to shut you and I up with withering financial punishment.

They don't like being held accountable for abandoning the values they were elected to defend.

When Public Advocate shows up on Capitol Hill and in state capitals across the country, you can believe the officials don't want to face the political heat we bring.

Obama knows this better than most.

And that's why he's working with his plants in the IRS to shut us down and shut us up.

Because when you and I demand our elected officials stand up for traditional marriage and pro-Family values, Obama and his allies in the radical Homosexual Lobby face an uphill battle enforcing their agenda.

The more pro-Family voices that flood the Federal Register during the public comment period, the better chance we have of nipping this threat in the bud and avoiding yet another long and costly court battle.

Public Advocate and other conservative 501(c)(4) groups have been vital in standing up for pro-Family values and defending traditional marriage.

Thanks to Public Advocate members like you, we've been able to hold off the Gay Bill of Special Rights from passing the House of Representatives.

This dangerous crown jewel of the Homosexual Agenda would codify special class employment status for homosexuals at the expense of First Amendment Religious Liberties.

President Obama and the radical Homosexual Lobby badly want this bill to pass.

In key battleground states like Utah, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, Public Advocate is engaged in targeted grassroots programs, fighting to preserve traditional marriage laws.

And unfortunately, weak-sister Republicans like Speaker of the House John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor would rather give Obama his way than lift a finger to defend our values.

That's why you and I can't relent one second in our fight against the Homosexual Agenda.

And that's precisely why Obama's IRS agents want to shut us up.

After you've signed your petition, please consider chipping in $5, $10, $25, or more to help Public Advocate run the most effective and wide-reaching program we can to protect pro-Family free speech.

Unlike the radical Homosexual Lobby, Public Advocate does not have seemingly unlimited resources, financed by wealthy celebrities and government grants.

Most of our funds come as small gifts from people just like you.

But even though we don't have the deep-pockets of Hollywood on our side, and we refuse to take a place at the government trough, your support keeps Public Advocate strong.

You are the reason Public Advocate is the most feared pro-Family network of activists in America.

Please sign your pro-Family freedom of speech petition today, and chip in with a generous financial gift to fund this and other vital Public Advocate programs today!

For the Family,

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

P.S. It is absolutely critical that you and I inspire as many pro-Family conservatives to speak out before the Federal Register's public comment period ends on February 27th.

Please sign your petition today to tell Barack Obama's IRS agents that we won't let them silence our values.

And after you've signed, please chip in with a generous financial contribution to give every single pro-Family Public Advocate member a voice against Obama's IRS agents.

Comcast + Time Warner Cable = Disaster for the rest of us

From Free Press Action Fund:

Comcast just announced that it’s buying Time Warner Cable. If approved, this outrageous deal would create a television and Internet colossus like no other. The fight to stop this merger begins today.

Comcast is the country's #1 cable and Internet company and Time Warner Cable is #2. Put them together and you get a single giant controlling a massive share of our nation’s TV and Internet-access markets.

Fight to Stop the Comcast/Time Warner Cable Merger.

No one woke up this morning wishing their cable company was bigger or had more control over what they watch and how they get online. But that's the reality we’ll face unless the Justice Department and the Federal Communications Commission do their jobs and block this merger.

Stopping this kind of deal is exactly why we have antitrust laws. After a year of sustained organizing, we convinced the DoJ and the FCC to stop AT&T from gobbling up T-Mobile. With your help we can stop this deal too.

Take Action: Say No to Comcast/Time Warner Cable

This merger would put more than a third of all cable-TV subscribers in Comcast’s hands and give it control over more than half of the “triple-play” services that combine TV, phone and Internet service. Don’t forget, Comcast already owns NBC, MSNBC, Universal Studios and tons of cable networks. That means that for most of America, Comcast could control even more of what you see and how you see it.

Putting this much power in the hands of one company is dangerous. This deal would lead to less consumer choice, less diversity and much higher cable bills.

Send a message to the DoJ and the FCC today. This is a fight we can win. Take action and we’ll be back in touch soon with next steps.

Thanks for all that you do—

Craig, Josh, Amy and the rest of the Free Press team

Remove the liberal House Speaker

From the Tea Party:

We've been betrayed again!

John Boehner just passed a so-called "clean" debt-ceiling hike through the Republican-controlled House.

He vowed yesterday to 'move it forward' and 'get it done.' Yet again, John Boehner proved his allegiance to Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and the Democrats. This is unacceptable.

Boehner's shift from liberal appeaser to full on liberal is why we must have your signature to remove him from office.

Already, the Tea Party Leadership Fund has spent more than $37k on hard hitting radio, and billboard ads in Boehner's own backyard. And after Speaker John's latest liberal lurch -- it's clear now more than ever, we need to keep up the pressure through till the moment we remove him from office.

Instead of addressing the problems of our big government spending and debt, this hike just raises the limit and ultimately taxes -- hurdling us into even greater fiscal danger.

The leadership of both parties in Washington is failing, and the American people know it. Too many Washington leaders have been in the seat of D.C. power for too long. Their chance to fix problems has passed, and now they break everything they touch.

It is time for fresh, intelligent, forceful, conservative voices like Ted Cruz, and Rand Paul to be heard and begin to lead.

Under Speaker Boehner's leadership our America won't last much longer, but right now it is still worth saving.

Please, it's time to step up...sign the Remove Boehner Petition now and donate at least $5.

The Tea Party Leadership Fund is the only group actively working on the on the ground in Boehner's district -- OH-08 -- to oppose the Speaker and his liberal agenda.

In John's district --•$10 buys 100 robocalls
•$75 makes 100 live calls
•$100 plays a 30 second radio spot
•$700 buys a week's worth of billboard on I-75

When you sign and donate, each and every dollar will go towards wining the hearts and minds of voters on the ground in Ohio. With your commitment, we are engaging the votes who will put the liberal RINO John Boehner out of a job. Polling shows a majority of his constituents would vote for a REAL conservative!.

Before he strikes again on amnesty, or another tax hike, will you commit to sign the Remove Boehner Petition?

Thank you. I'm counting on you.

Sincerely,

Rusty Humphries
Primary Boehner Chairman

P.S. Ask yourself: what have you gotten out of his leadership? Bigger government, amnesty, and Obamacare. But is this what you want? So please, make an immediate contribution of $25 so we'll have the resources to primary John Boehner now. Thanks - Rusty

Sign the pledge to defeat Hillary Clinton

From Sheriff Joe Arpaio:

You know me as the toughest sheriff in America.

You also know me as a straight talker - I tell it like it is.

My friend, America is in trouble.

I've spent my entire life fighting for the rule of law and what is right and just. I have fought against the Mexican Drug Cartels who have threatened my life and my family. I have fought against the corrupt Obama Department of Justice that is more interested in scoring political points than enforcing the law. I have fought against President Obama who doesn't have the first clue on how to secure our borders or protect our citizens.

Today, I'm ready to take on a new fight and I need your help.

You see, I'm convinced that "the fix is in" and that without a huge effort starting right now - Hillary Clinton will be the next President of the United States.

Her henchmen - James Carville and Harold Ickes - are busy greasing the skids, raising millions of dollars, buying off the competition... all designed to install her in the White House without a fight.

Well you know me... I'm always up for a good fight. And fighting for America is what I do best.

That's why I'm asking you to join me in supporting Stop Hillary PAC today. Will you please click on this link and sign your name to my Pledge to Defeat Hillary campaign?

And after you sign your pledge, will you please chip in with a generous donation of $25, 50 or even $100 to help me fight Hillary Clinton across America? Your gift could not come at a more important moment.

Stop Hillary PAC is organizing across the country to stop Hillary Clinton from ever becoming president of the United States.

We have a plan - and with your help we can Stop Hillary Now.

So I'm asking you today — before you do anything else — to follow this link and sign your name to our Pledge to Defeat Hillary campaign.

I know I don't have to tell you the damage a Hillary Clinton presidency will do to the America we know and love. Building upon the dangerous Obama legacy, President Hillary Clinton will cement the disastrous policies of Obama into the fabric of America forever.

>>> Open Borders and Permanent Amnesty: Hillary will finish what President Obama and Harry Reid have started - an immigration policy that rewards law breakers and leaves our citizens vulnerable to criminals and thugs.


>>> A Bigger and more Overreaching Government: Hillary will continue Obama's assault on free markets and plot to gut conservative and Tea Party groups. Will the IRS start targeting all conservatives under President Clinton?


>>> A Foreign Policy that leaves America Weak and Vulnerable: Does anyone really believe America is stronger in the world after Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have been in charge?


>>> Obamacare expanded into Hillarycare: Hillary will be the ultimate implementer Obamacare - resulting in sky rocketing taxes, health-care costs and rationing of care?


>>> Jimmy Carter style Joblessness and Unemployment: From the big banks to the taxpayer funded government takeover, a Hillary Clinton Administration will be a dangerous anti-capitalist government that will destroy our economy.

But here is the real scary part: Hillary is even closer to the presidency now than ever before.

That's why I'm asking you, before you read any further, please click on this link and sign your name to our Pledge to Defeat Hillary campaign - and please make a generous gift to our campaign.

My friend, if there is one thing I've learned during my years in law enforcement... it's you can never start preparing too early for a fight.

Our immediate goal is to collect over 1 million signatures - a grassroots army of Americans committed to doing whatever it takes to defeat Hillary.

Then we will enact an all-out media blitz to expose Hillary's left-wing record of failure. Finally, we will target precinct-by-precinct with a coordinated hard-hitting TV, radio and digital effort in every county in America that Hillary needs to win the presidency.

One more important thing: we simply cannot achieve our goals without your financial support as well. I also need you to make a contribution today.

Please, in addition to signing your Pledge to Defeat Hillary, I urge you make your most generous contribution to help me and Stop Hillary PAC do what it takes to ensure Hillary Clinton never becomes President.

I assure you that your contribution of $25, $50 or even as much $100 will go directly to exposing Hillary Clinton to voters across American and ensure she never becomes president.

My friend, as I wrote above... America is in trouble.

I'm going to fight back with - or without - your help. The only difference is: will I have the necessary resources to fight or will Hillary Clinton run over us with her mountains of support?

It's up to you.

Please send help if you can.

Very Sincerely Yours,

Sheriff Joe Arpaio
Maricopa County, Arizona

Fight Obamacare and forced card check

From Rand2016:

It could hardly be worse for President Obama.

The ObamaCare roll out has been a disaster. Something as simple and elementary as the healthcare.gov website is plagued with "glitches" making the system completely unworkable.

Millions of Americans are receiving notices that their health insurance is being cancelled or their premiums are skyrocketing.

The state of Delaware alone spent $4 million to enroll only four people in ObamaCare.

And ObamaCare expert "navigators" were recently caught on camera coaching people to lie on their applications.

But as bad as all this is, it means nothing if you and I don't fight back. So today I'm counting on your advice . . .

I've created for you a special Stand With Rand Directive. Won't you please fill it out IMMEDIATELY?

Earlier last year, I launched a 13-hour filibuster, taking over the floor of the U.S. Senate from Majority Leader Reid to highlight the issue of out-of-control government power and domestic drone use.

I know you and millions of other Americans stood with me all the way.

Now I am asking you to stand with me once again as even more critical fights approach.

The truth is, with the ObamaCare rollout debacle, the talk in Congress is now about "reforming" or "fixing" the bill.

I'm as worried as anyone about the damage this disastrous law is inflicting on the American people.

But "reform" isn't the answer. "Fixing" the bill is no solution. All this would do is allow ObamaCare's taxes and regulations to become even further entrenched.

So the answer is outright REPEAL. And you and I can't settle for anything less.

I hope you agree -- and if you think this should be my top priority in the next few months -- please mark "REPEAL OBAMACARE" on your Stand With Rand Member Directive.

Click here to answer

But before you do, please consider everything else you and I are likely to face over the next few months.

With his approval levels at a record low, President Obama is doing everything possible to change the subject off ObamaCare by ramming through even more Big Government power grabs into law, including:

***More taxing and spending. You and I both know Washington, D.C.'s debt problem isn't due to a lack of "revenue" (taxes). The problem is spending.

Yet, those in BOTH parties want to keep hiking our national debt limit and passing new job-destroying schemes like the National Internet Tax Mandate.

***Gun Control. President Obama has already called for "transformation" of our nation's gun laws, and has done his best to chip away at our Second Amendment with a flurry of Executive Orders.

With the U.N.'s so-called "Small Arms Treaty" waiting in the wings, I'm afraid you and I could see a renewed push for gun control in Congress as well.

***Immigration Reform. Over my objections, the bill the Senate passed earlier this year lacks real safeguards to ensure the Obama administration does its job in securing our border.

Just as bad, the bill also includes a new National ID database, which will only increase government spying on U.S. citizens. The Republican-controlled House has effectively announced the Senate's version "dead on arrival," but it's virtually assured the fight over this issue will be back.

Frankly, I'm not sure how much more of this madness we can take!

So if you think defeating President Obama's legislative schemes are most important, please mark "STOP PRESIDENT OBAMA'S AGENDA" on your Member Directive.

Click here to answer

But first, please understand that winning at the ballot box in 2014 means laying the groundwork for victory now.

Can you imagine just how emboldened President Obama and his Big Government allies will be if they don't pay a price in the 2014 elections?

The ObamaCare monstrosity would remain on the books. The phony "green" Cap and Tax scheme would be back.

So would "Card Check" instant union organizing.

So would whatever else the radical Left could dream up.

Quite frankly, you and I can't afford to kick this can down the road. We have to start fighting back now.

That means supporting solid and principled candidates.

I know there are some in my own party who want to wave the white flag of surrender.

They believe the best way forward for our Republican Party is to be more like Democrats.

They want to make it seem like those of us who stand up for principle do it alone.

With your help, I want to show them they don't know what they are talking about.

So if you believe preparing for the 2014 elections is most important, please mark "WIN AT THE BALLOT BOX IN 2014."

Click here to answer

I'm committed to fighting back on all fronts. But I'm just one U.S. Senator. It's the action and support of good folks like you that really makes the difference.

It's because of your action that you and I stopped President Obama's "background check" registration scheme earlier this year, we forced the administration's hand when it comes to targeting and killing American citizens with drones on U.S. soil and we stopped the misguided march to war in Syria.

But without your generosity and support today, I'm afraid I just won't be able to keep up enough heat on Congress to stop President Obama's radical agenda AND lay the groundwork for success in 2014.

I'm sure you see why I'm so torn . . .

That's why I've included one more option on your Stand With Rand Member Directive -- "FIGHT ON ALL FRONTS."

It's the option I'm very much hoping you'll select.

But please realize, without your support, I just won't have the resources to mobilize American citizens to all of these fights.

So won't you please agree to your most generous financial contribution of $250, $100, $50 or $35 today?

I know that's a lot. I know that's more than you've been able to give in the past. But 2014 is an absolutely critical year. You and I must fight back with everything we have.

If is not possible for you right now, please agree to chip in a contribution of $20 or at least $10.

It's critical I hear from you right away

So please fill out your Stand With Rand Directive and rush me your most generous contribution of $250, $100, $50, $35, $20 or $10 TODAY!

In Liberty,

Senator Rand Paul

P.S. Today I'm counting on your advice.

President Obama is determined to change the subject from ObamaCare by ramming through even more Big Government power grabs through Congress.

Not only that, but if you and I want to emerge victorious at the ballot box in 2014, we must start fighting back now.

So please fill out your Stand With Rand Directive and rush it back to me today along with your most generous contribution of $250, $100, $50, $35, $20 or at least $10 IMMEDIATELY.

Take the Public Advocate survey

From Public Advocate:

President Obama claims you support homosexual "marriage."

He and his ultra-liberal media allies brag that you're demanding special job preferences for homosexuals and teaching so-called "alternative" lifestyles in school.

Is it true? What do you say?

That is why I've prepared a nation-wide American Morality Survey.

With the liberal media's poll results in hand, the Homosexual Lobby insists YOU actually support them.

And with Harry Reid's Senate and Obama's White House under their thumb, the Homosexual Lobby says NOW is the time to push their perverse lifestyle on every man, woman and child in America.

To make matters worse, more and more Republicans in Congress are coming out in favor of the Homosexual Agenda.

That's how the Homosexual Lobby rammed through the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

Now they are determined to pass nationalized homosexual "marriage" to cement Obama's left-wing legacy.

And if they convince enough Republicans to throw their support behind the Homosexual Agenda, I can only begin to imagine how much more damage they will inflict on our country.

As the President of Public Advocate of the United States, I've devoted thirty years to battling the Homosexual Lobby in Washington.

That's why pro-Family Senators and Congressmen are counting on me to find out if you really support the Homosexual Agenda.

Take the American Morality Survey

After completing your survey, please take a minute to watch a confidential video just for Public Advocate supporters.

If you remain silent, insiders in Congress say the entire Homosexual Agenda could pass in a matter of months.

Passage of the Homosexual Agenda will ignite a firestorm that will rip through families, communities and businesses:

*Special job rights for homosexuals. Business owners may have to adopt hiring quotas to protect themselves from lawsuits. Every homosexual fired or passed over for promotion becomes a potential federal civil rights "victim."

Radical homosexuals will terrorize daycare centers, hospitals, churches and private schools. Traditional moral values will be shattered by federal law.

*Homosexual "marriage." Ministers would be forced by government mandates to perform "marriage" rites on wedding-gown clad men.

Don't believe me? Across the nation, government officials are already punishing photographers, bakeries and wedding planners for refusing to support homosexual "weddings."

In Canada and across Europe, government attacks have already begun on pro-Family ministers.

*The Homosexual Classrooms Act. Your children or grandchildren will be taught homosexuality is moral and natural.

High school children will learn perverted sex acts as part of “safe sex” education.
One stormy night, I drove to a mailshop hidden deep in a nearly deserted stand of warehouses. I'd heard something was up and wanted to see for myself.

Take the American Morality Survey

As I rounded the final turn, my eyes nearly popped. Tractor-trailers pulled up to loading docks, cars and vans everywhere and long-haired, earring-pierced men scurrying around running forklifts, inserters and huge printing presses.

Trembling with worry, I went inside. It was worse than I ever imagined.

Row after row of boxes bulging with pro-homosexual petitions lined the walls, stacked to the ceiling.

My mind reeled as I realized hundreds, maybe thousands, more boxes were already loaded on the tractor-trailers. And still more petitions were flying off the press.

Suddenly a dark-haired man screeched, “Delgaudio, what are you doing here?” Dozens of men began moving toward me. I'd been recognized.

As I retreated to my car, the man chortled, “This time, Delgaudio, we can't lose!”

Driving away, my eyes filled with tears as I realized he might be right. This time the Homosexual Lobby could win it all.

I've been warned hundreds of thousands of pro-homosexual petitions will soon flood Congress.

And my friends in Congress tell me that the tens of millions of pro-Family Americans have remained virtually silent.

Will you remain silent?

Take the American Morality Survey

Homosexual activists mock me in the halls of Congress. They say Americans like you don’t care enough to help -- especially now with the Homosexual Lobby in control of the Senate and the White House.

They say you support them. I tell them they are lying. They just laugh and point to the liberal media's poll numbers.

Are they right? Should I just give up and let the radical Homosexual Lobby win?

Or will you fight?

If you still oppose the radical Homosexual Agenda and want to defend the Family and marriage, then please immediately fill out the American Morality Survey and donate your most generous contribution of $15 to Public Advocate right away.

And then stay tuned for a special video message just for Public Advocate supporters.

The Homosexual Lobby boasts that "everyone" supports nationalized homosexual "marriage," privileged employment rights and mandatory homosexual education in schools.

Please let Congress know the liberal media, Barack Obama and the Homosexual Lobby are lying.

For the Family,


Eugene Delgaudio
President, Public Advocate of the United States


P.S. The Homosexual Lobby claims YOU support homosexual “marriage,” privileged employment rights and mandatory homosexual education in schools. Is it true?

Please fill out your American Morality Survey right away so I can prove to Congress and the media the Homosexual Lobby is lying about you.

And after you fill out the survey, will you please chip in $15, $10 or $5 to help me reach the millions of Americans I know still care about the Family?
