Fight back against Obama's abuses

From RandPAC:

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 RANDPAC 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 (R - KY)

Unfortunately, not enough Americans have signed the petition supporting this legislation.

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


Our freedoms are on the line people. This isn't tiddlywinks,we're talking about our basic concepts of rights and what they mean. If Obama walks other Statists are going to get ideas and do the same. To paraphrase Benjamin Franklin: "we have given you a republic. How long you keep it is up to you". That "you" is us,the American people. If you want a democratic represenatative republic then sign the petition and keep it. If you want a statist dictatorship do nothing and that is what will be handed to you. Your choice.

Marijuana prohibitionists getting desperate

The Anti-Marijuana Lobby Is Enlisting Scientific Mercenaries
SAM BECKER GOOGLE
AUGUST 30, 2014

It’s an age-old play that has been used in several different industries over the past several decades, and now marijuana is the new target. One incredibly popular method for garnering support against a cause is to attack the science and facts supporting it, even if it is a virtual certainty that you’d be fighting a losing battle.

According to a new report from Vice, that’s precisely what’s happening to the cannabis industry, despite the fact that marijuana has only been legalized in two states for recreational use and a handful of others for medicinal purposes. It’s been well-known for a while that there are plenty of groups with vested interests in keeping marijuana illegal, including prison guard unions, law enforcement agents and officials, private prison companies, and more. But the group Vice focuses on is the painkiller industry.

One would think at first that pharmaceutical companies would be ecstatic about marijuana prohibition finally coming to an end, as it could possibly supply them with a relatively cheap and easy resource to study and apply to their products. But as with any entrenched special interest group, they instead see it as a threat to profits.

So instead of embracing the end of prohibition, many companies have decided to pay academics to develop research that instead leads to the conclusion that marijuana is a health hazard and should remain outlawed. Vice cites the claims of Dr. Herbert Kleber of Columbia University, who has published work and has been quoted as saying that marijuana is a ‘gateway drug’, is addictive and will hurt society as a whole.

Of course, he’s also a paid consultant to several large pharmaceutical companies that manufacture painkillers, which could lose their appeal if marijuana is adopted en masse in coming years.

As with anything, marijuana does most likely pose some health risks. Smoking anything isn’t really good for your health, and there is plenty of research to be done focused on the long-term effects of cannabis use, particularly in younger people. But even with those concerns in mind, marijuana use is not even remotely close in terms of danger and damage to products like cigarettes, alcohol and yes, even prescription painkillers — all of which have been linked to thousands, if not millions of deaths per year.

Marijuana has still yet to kill anyone, although it could play a factor in things like auto accidents. But as far as overdoses? Zero.

The truth is that the ploy boy these painkiller manufacturers is tired and played out. We saw it from the cigarette companies during the 1960s and ’70s, claiming that cigarettes were harmless when they are one of the most dangerous products available. We’re seeing it today in the climate change debate, in which 98 percent of scientists have come to the conclusion that man-made climate change is a serious problem. Yet, there are still a handful of scientists (many of whom on the payroll of large, entrenched energy corporations) who feel otherwise.

Perhaps the most important question of all regarding these paid academics is relative to the worries they’re adopting in the first place. For those opposing marijuana legalization, the arguments are usually centered-around health concerns and public safety. Yet, we already have far more dangerous products available on the market, which actually do lead to increased instances of violence and crime and nobody has a problem with it.

So why would they have a problem with marijuana?

There’s always the chance that these people genuinely hold these concerns, but it has to be understood that the ties they hold to these companies compromises their opinion in many aspects, especially in the eyes of the public.

Take what the paid ‘experts’ are saying with a grain of salt. This is the same tactic we’ve seen the energy and cigarette industries use over the years, and until some concrete evidence surfaces that marijuana is indeed a public threat, there’s really no reason to think so.

After all, do we really want to keep putting people in jail to bolster the profits of pharmaceutical companies, private prison organizations, and prison guard unions?

Probably not.

Turn up the heat on audit the fed,national internet tax mandate

From Campaign For Liberty:

I’m nervous. . .

Shortly before the House adjourned for the August recess, Campaign for Liberty received word that House Leadership was planning to schedule a roll call vote on Audit the Fed in September.

Yet we are hearing from Capitol Hill sources that House Leadership may cut short the already limited number of days they will spend in D.C. this September, so they will look to rush through their remaining agenda.

I’m nervous because, with a suddenly shifting schedule, we could have only a day or two’s notice before the vote happens!

So C4L must be able to instantly place intense heat on wavering representatives in key House districts through email, Facebook and Google ads, and more to make sure this vote is as successful – or even stronger – than our 2012 results.

And if we win again in the House, we need to immediately use the victory to turn up the heat on Harry Reid’s vulnerable Senate cronies, who are facing difficult elections, and force them to publicly choose between Reid, the special interests, and the banksters, or the nearly 75% of Americans who support Audit the Fed.

In order to take such quick action, Campaign for Liberty must have the necessary funds ready to draw on right away.

And right now, we simply do not have those funds.

Will you please make a special emergency contribution of $30, $20, or $10 to help us have the resources to implement a full rapid response plan at literally a moment’s notice?

I know I’ve asked a lot from you this year, but we can’t afford to lose our best opportunity to not only once again pass Audit the Fed through the House but finally force Harry Reid to act.

With public discontent growing over ObamaCare, continuing high unemployment, and skyrocketing grocery prices, the last thing Reid’s vulnerable Senate cronies need is attention focused on how they are helping him block efforts to bring transparency to the institution responsible for so many of America’s economic problems: the Federal Reserve.

But unless we have the resources to quickly maximize pressure on the Senate if Audit the Fed passes the House, those senators may not feel enough heat to abandon Reid and the banksters!

So please support our rapid response efforts with your most generous contribution of $30, $20, or $10.

Audit the Fed is not the only issue that C4L must be prepared to fight on at a moment’s notice in September.

The coalition of powerful special interests and big-spending, tax-hungry politicians has not yet given up plans to sneak the National Internet Tax Mandate through Congress, including by attaching it to the moratorium on Internet access taxes.

The Senate could vote on attaching the National Internet Tax Mandate to the moratorium bill at any time next month, and if it passes there, we may only have hours to stop it in the House.

In addition, there is a strong possibility that Harry Reid will cut a deal with House Leadership to ram through a “Continuing Resolution” increasing government spending on programs including ObamaCare.

There are also reports that the Continuing Resolution may even include an extension of the Export-Import Bank.

Like Audit the Fed and the Internet Tax Mandate, the Continuing Resolution fight could be a very quick one, requiring us to have to immediately spring into action.

But right now, we do not have the funds to do everything needed in even one of these battles, much less all three.

So please support our efforts with a special contribution of $30, if you can today.

Having the resources right on hand is critical to ensure we accomplish our goals this fall, so if $30 is too much, can I count on you for a contribution of $20 or even $10?

We also want to ensure our 2014 Candidate Survey Program can run at full strength so the public can know where their candidates stand on key liberty issues.

A successful survey program is key to building on our successes in 2015 and beyond.

But if we are forced to drain our bank accounts to pass Audit the Fed, block the National Internet Tax Mandate, and stop the GOP leadership from once again caving to President Obama and Senator Reid, we will not be able to run our survey program at maximum capacity.

As you can see, the next month presents us with both challenges and opportunities to advance our agenda.

Unless we are prepared to take advantage of our upcoming window, however, the statists could succeed in not just continuing to block Audit the Fed but also in tightening control over the Internet and once again increasing spending and debt.

Please help Campaign for Liberty fight back with your most generous contribution of $30, $20, or $10 today.

Thank you for standing with us!

In Liberty,

John Tate
President

P.S. This September, Campaign for Liberty must be prepared to act on a moment’s notice on Audit the Fed, the National Internet Tax Mandate, and more.

If we can win on Audit the Fed again in the House, we need to immediately turn up the pressure on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his cronies to finally hold a Senate roll call vote.

But right now, we simply do not have the funds to do everything necessary on Audit the Fed, especially if we have to also fight other emergency battles in what could be a rushed congressional session.

So please help us ensure Campaign for Liberty can successfully advance Audit the Fed while beating back any last-minute attempt to expand government by making your most generous contribution of $30, $20, or $10 today!

Marijuana legalization in 3 states

From NORML:

I hope you'll agree that the momentum in the United States to end cannabis prohibition is now genuinely palpable.

Citizens' votes in Colorado and Washington in 2012 to end their state's cannabis prohibition laws and replace them with 'tax-n-regulate' laws arguably has forever broken the back of the federal government's nearly eighty-year old failed and expensive prohibition.

We can lay more bricks of permanent reforms to this foundation when voters in Alaska, Oregon and the District of Columbia decide on ballot questions in favor of legally controlling (and benefiting from) cannabis commerce.

Many national polls today indicate nearly 60% support for legalizing the cultivation, sale and use of cannabis. Objective media and think tanks continue to praise the nascent stages of Colorado and Washington's cannabis commerce and taxation.

Both of these factors bode strongly for all three ballot measures this November.

NORML's board of directors endorses these cannabis legalization measures. All three support basic tenets of reform. They differ slightly in scope and implementation based on local considerations of law, customs and polled public sentiment.

The legalization measures in Alaska and Oregon could end cannabis prohibition, allow cultivation for personal use, permit commercial growing for sale in licensed stores, and provide adults with plenty of plants. In the federal city of Washington, D.C., voters could reduce cannabis penalties to zero for possession and personal cultivation--but retail sales must wait.

I hope you'll agree with NORML's board that the passage of these three voter initiatives will greatly advance cannabis law reform in our country.

What can NORML's large network of members and supporters do to help pass these three crucially important cannabis law reforms this fall?

Please make a tax-deductible donation to The NORML Foundation to support a specific state's legalization initiative.

Contact, communicate with and join your local NORML chapter (there are over 150 NORML chapters in the United States)

Organize among your family, friends and co-workers to be supportive of these three initiatives and help spread the word and excitement of citizens in America now taking the opportunity to end a long-failed public policy and replacing it with a new one that is constitutionally-friendly, free- market oriented, fair and rational.

If you're reading this note and reside in Alaska, Oregon or Washington, D.C., your time for participation has arrived. Focus your time, energy and to pass these major reforms. For more information about what residents can do to help pass these initiatives, please contact the national NORML office in Washington, D.C. or your local chapters in these states.

Those of us who live elsewhere can still help. As the repeal of alcohol prohibition taught us, each state that falls makes the next ones topple easier.

Please join my family and me this fall in supporting these cannabis legalization ballot initiatives.

Thanks in advance and warm regards,
Mitch Earleywine, Ph.D
Chair, NORML Board of Directors
Albany, NY

Prevent gay bill of special rights in Michigan

From Public Advocate:

Two of the wealthiest enemies of Real Marriage in America have just set their sights on Michigan.

Tim Gill and Paul Singer control hundreds of millions of dollars dedicated to the Homosexual Agenda.

Tim Gill’s Action Fund used his millions to take over Colorado politics and enshrine homosexual privileges into law.

Right now, Christian baker Jack Phillips is being persecuted by those very legislative changes.

Paul Singer made his first major attack on the Family when he paid off New York state legislators to pass homosexual “marriage” in their state.

After that, he created the American Unity PAC and pumped millions of dollars in political campaigns and marriage referendums during the 2012 election cycle.

Now these two are trying to “purchase” Michigan for the radical Homosexual Lobby as well.

Singer and Gill have officially funneled $155,000 into Michigan politics to help buy passage of a state version of the Gay Bill of Special Rights.

These pay-offs have gone to State Representatives Frank Foster and Jase Bolger, who is also the Speaker of the State House.

The plan calls for Foster to introduce the bill and for Bolger to bring it up for a vote.

Singer and Gill each gave $50,000 to the Bolger Restore Michigan Fund and $25,000 each to Foster’s Spotlight Michigan Fund.

That's $75,000 from each.

Singer also gave the maximum campaign contribution to Bolger and Foster, while Gill gave the maximum donation to Foster and three declared homosexuals running as Democratic House candidates.

And this is just their first strike.

They don’t have the numbers when it comes to voters, so they are using the numbers in their bank accounts.

But pro-Family Michiganders aren’t giving up.

And they just proved again that the Homosexual Lobby does not have the support of the voters.

Representative Foster lost his bid for re-election in the Republican primary.

His constituents rejected him expressly for his support of the Homosexual Agenda.

His opponent actually credits his own victory to standing against the Homosexual Agenda.

While this is a great victory for the Family, there is a downside we have to deal with.

Foster is now a “lameduck” legislator.

Since he is on his way out of office, he has nothing to lose by pushing the Gay Bill of Special Rights.

We have to ramp up pressure on Michigan legislators to kill this bill in its tracks.

That's why Public Advocate keeps pro-Family leaders like you informed, and with key people like you, we can immediately impact Michigan and reverse wrongful efforts by the mega-rich Gay lobbyists.

Together, we can show billionaires like Tim Gill and Paul Singer that our country is not for sale!

For the Family,

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

P.S. Will you chip in $5 or $10 to help Public Advocate fight against the deep-pocketed Homosexual Lobby and their attacks on Real Marriage?

Join the protest to protect Net Neutrality



From Demand Progress:

Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.

Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?

How would your worldview be different? Do you think you’d have found Demand Progress or other causes you care about? Would you be getting this email?

On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality.

We need everyone on board for this. Got a website or blog? Find out how the slowdown works and how you can join here.

If you don’t have a website, you are still part of this! Here’s a quick list of things you can do to help in the Battle for the Net.

This isn’t about how quickly our cat videos load, it’s about the future of our ability to communicate, to learn, to create, and to rebel. It’s about the future of humanity.

We've proved time and again that even concentrated monopoly and government power is no match for the power of people’s voices connected and amplified by the free and open web.

That power is our greatest asset as we take on some of the country's wealthiest, most aggressive, and most corrupt corporations. This could be one of our last chances to defend it.

If we lose it, we lose a lot more than just the Internet. If we win, we win a lot more than just streaming video. The stakes are high and we should be acting like it.

The Internet is counting on each and every one of us to act. Let’s not let ourselves down. See you on the net September 10th!

Thanks.

Fire Harry Reid

From RandPAC:

"GOODBYE TO THE REPUBLICAN WAVE?"

That was the headline in a recent New York Times column dripping with excitement about the fact that election year 2014 is still too close to call, stating:

"The anti-Democratic wave might still arrive . . . [but] the promised Republican momentum has yet to materialize."

I know the New York Times has never been a friend to those of us who believe in liberty and limited government.

But make no mistake.

This is crunch time. Right now, campaigns all over the country are reaching a fever pitch. Polls in many of the most critical races show a dead heat.

If you and I want to finally put a stop to President Obama’s "remaking America," it must happen NOW.

As you’ll see, I’ve included a special RANDPAC "Harry Reid Pink Slip." Won’t you please sign it IMMEDIATELY?

With your help, my hope is that RANDPAC will finally counter the Democrats’ smear machine and fire Harry Reid as U.S. Senate Majority Leader.

After all, Democrats know they can’t run on their DISASTROUS Big Government record, which includes:

*** Hiking our national debt to nearly $17.6 TRILLION – which puts each U.S. taxpayer on the hook for $151,000! And that’s over and above the already stifling tax rates hardworking Americans are forced to pay every year!

*** Refusing to lift a finger to stop ObamaCare’s disastrous effect on American citizens’ lives as health plans are cancelled, insurance premiums skyrocket, businesses shut their doors and workers see their hours cut or jobs eliminated.

Meanwhile, taxpayers are getting bilked for an additional $2.6 TRILLION we simply don’t have and still tens of millions of Americans are still left uninsured!

*** Assaulting our most basic constitutional freedoms, including our Second Amendment rights, and flat-out refusing to stand up to the NSA’s spying on innocent American citizens’ phone calls, emails and Internet activity. Is it any wonder why President Obama’s approval numbers are in the basement?

In fact, one recent poll showed Americans view him as the worst president in modern history!

Sadly, I’m afraid none of that will matter if you and I aren’t willing to fight.

Knowing they’re unable to run on their records, Democrats are going to resort to lies and SMEARS about Republican candidates – using everything from class warfare to phony "war on women" scare tactics.

Special interests who depend on their crony capitalist government connections to turn a "profit" – and want to see the bailouts, "stimulus packages" and sweetheart deals continue – are doing everything they can to ensure Harry Reid remains Senate Majority Leader for the last two years of the Obama presidency.

Meanwhile, I’m afraid the national media will continue to look the other way while Obama administration allies make ridiculous claims like "ObamaCare is working," or the IRS just "lost" emails targeting pro-limited government organizations or "the border is under control."

That’s why it’s up to you and me to fight back with everything we have.

I’m committed to stopping President Obama’s Big Government, tax-and-spend agenda.

Today, I believe the best way to do that is to hand Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid a pink slip.

I believe it’s up to you and me to elect a new principled Republican Senate Majority – one committed to fighting for our limited government beliefs – this November.

If you agree, please sign your "Harry Reid Pink Slip" right away.

Your signed "Pink Slip" will let me know you support RANDPAC’s critical efforts to fire Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader this election year.

And if you can, please chip in a contribution at once.

Even as I write you, RANDPAC staff is already busy putting the finishing touches on an all-out election year campaign I’d like to launch in the next few weeks, including:

>>> A hard-hitting mail and email mobilization effort in critical open-seat contests like Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota and West Virginia. Open-seat contests are always volatile, and polls show many could go either way;

>>> Running Internet ads and working with local media to expose the radical views of Democrat candidates challenging sitting Republican senators in states like Kentucky;

>>> Cutting TV ads calling Democrat incumbents to the carpet for their pro-ObamaCare, pro-gun control, pro-big spending records in toss-up states like Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Louisiana, Minnesota, North Carolina and Virginia;

>>>> Paying for a last-minute campaign blitz, where I’ll criss-cross the country, personally traveling to toss-up states to help with Get-Out-The-Vote efforts for Republican Senate candidates.

This plan is incredibly ambitious, I know.

But I can only imagine what could happen if the New York Times is somehow right and our "Republican wave" is over.

Next year, President Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and the rest of the Democrats will be more emboldened than ever to push any number of outrageous schemes.

That means more spending, higher taxes, gun control and perhaps new Big Government boondoggles like Cap and Tax.

It’s up to you and me to stand up and stop this madness NOW!

If you agree, please sign Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s "Pink Slip" right away.

But please don’t stop there.

If you possibly can, please chip in a contribution of $10 or $20 right away.

As I mentioned, RANDPAC staff is now putting the finishing touches on our campaign plan for this fall. But the best-laid plans in the world are nothing more than words on paper without the money to put them into action.

So I’m counting on your action to help make 2014 a year to remember.

If you agree, please chip in a contribution of $10 or $20 right away.

Your support could make all the difference.

In Liberty,

Senator Rand Paul (R - KY)

P.S. Right now, campaigns all over the country are reaching a fever pitch. Polls in many of the most critical races show a dead heat.

Some are saying the idea of a Republican “wave election” like 2010 is all but dead!

I think they’re wrong. But I must be able to count on your support right away.

As you’ll see, I’ve included a special "Harry Reid Pink Slip." Please sign it right away and chip in a contribution of $10 or $20 to help me put RANDPAC’s election-year programs into action!

Make Harry Reid cry

From The Tea Party Patriots:

The mid-term elections are approaching fast. And to be prepared, we must raise $800,000 between now and Labor Day.

But why not have a little fun while we’re at it?!

Because Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid despises the Tea Party so much, we’ve decided to name this historic fall campaign fundraising drive effort after HIM!!

Please, make an urgent generous contribution of $15, $25, $50, or whatever you can afford to our national “Make Harry Reid Cry” countdown to Labor Day $800,000 fundraising drive.

Between now and Election Day, we must educate voters on what is at stake in Washington. We need to explain to them that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his left-wing Democrats are helping Barack Obama destroy this country.

We need to put voter guides in the hands of every single conservative voter.

We must run massive phone banks to remind conservatives to vote.

The Tea Party must swing into action on a truly massive scale in the weeks leading up to this year’s elections!

Please donate whatever you can right now. And ask every conservative you know to do the same.

Harry Reid thinks he has Washington, D.C. in the palm of his hand. He thinks he can do whatever he wants.

He’s banking on ruling over a Senate next year that will let him pass amnesty, roll back our freedom of speech, empower the IRS, and force Obamacare down our throats!

But there’s one thing standing in his way: the Tea Party movement.

If we succeed in raising this $800,000, Harry Reid won’t know what to do with himself. He might even be brought to tears as he watches his liberal house of cards crumble.

We’re not sure what that would look like, but we imagine it would look something like the picture of Harry on our donation page.

Just click here to take a look!

As we get closer and closer to our goal, our cartoon Harry’s going to get more and more stressed. The tears will flow as our fundraising grows!

But even more importantly, if we can hit this $800,000 goal by the end of this month, we’ll have the money on hand to fund our national voter education campaign.

But, if we fail, we simply won’t have the resources we need for this fall. And the liberals will know it.

This year’s elections are critically important. And it is our duty to do everything we can to rally the American people against Washington’s big-government mess.

So please, help us kick off this massive campaign by making a generous donation right now.

As you know, Labor Day is the unofficial “start” of the fall campaign season. It is when voters really begin to pay attention to the issues.

We must raise this $800,000 by then!

Just click here to make your generous contribution.

Remember, the entire political world is monitoring our fundraising progress through our website.

It’s time to show them just how strong the Tea Party is.

Tell Obama to secure our borders

From RandPAC:

Medicine is my first calling.

That's why I was so humbled this past week to travel to Guatemala as part of a medical mission to help conduct pro bono surgeries and distribute eye glasses to help restore or improve sight.

Medicine and surgery have always been my passion and I was grateful for the opportunity to help those in need.

While I was in Guatemala, I also met with President Otto Perez Molina to discuss the current immigration crisis.

He agreed to review his country's policy of banning American families from adopting Guatemalan children.

Enacted in 2008 at the urging of our State Department in order to conform to the United Nations Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption, this law blocked the tens of thousands of adoptions each year by American families of Guatemalan children.

Now there are zero adoptions.

In place of adoptions, thousands of immigrant children are now streaming illegally across our borders.

Rolling back this misguided policy is one step in solving our border crisis.

You see, the root cause of the debacle on our southern border doesn't lie in Guatemala.

The heart of this crisis is the lawless executive orders issued by President Obama.

President Obama created magnets for tens of thousands of men, women, teenagers - and even children - to spill across our border.

And even in the face of the disaster he created, President Obama refuses to secure our border.

That's why I supported legislation passed by the House of Representatives that would defund programs President Obama expanded that transformed the situation along our southern border from a fiasco to a full on crisis.

So I hope you'll join RANDPAC in electing constitutional conservatives who will fight to secure our border by signing your petition today.

In Liberty,

Senator Rand Paul (R - KY)

P.S. Sign your petition today and help RANDPAC fight to secure our border by election constitutional conservatives this November.

Thank you from Stop Hillary PAC

From Stop Hillary PAC:

My sincerest and deepest gratitude -- thank you for signing the petition to Support Trey Gowdy and our Citizen's Subpoena of Hillary Clinton.

We have gathered over 104,576 signatures for the Subpoena, and next week, we will serve the document in full to Hillary and hand deliver a copy to Congressman Trey Gowdy.

With your invaluable help...we won't let Hillary off the hook. It's all made possible by people like you.

Without you Hillary would skate by on the fast track to becoming president, but with your continued help we are building a road block.

Let me share with you why I have so much hope: in fact, more than 500,000 dedicated patriots like yourself have joined together with Stop Hillary PAC to stop HER.

From the beginning, our goal has been to build an army of 1 million patriots to stand up to Hillary...from every corner and every precinct in America.

**We are half way there because of you.**

So, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Sincerely,

Ted Harvey
Chairman, Stop Hillary PAC

PS. Please, if you're as committed as I am, chip in $5 here to stop Hillary. And again, THANK YOU!

Defeat Harry Reid's attempt to control the Senate

From Congressman Steve Daines:

Harry Reid and Barack Obama have won again.

In an unprecedented move, liberal Democrats in Montana switched their U.S. Senate candidate in a desperate attempt to save Harry Reid's control of the United States Senate and Barack Obama's liberal agenda.

Let me get straight to the point.

On August 7th appointed U.S. Senator John Walsh dropped out of the race for the seat he's finishing out the current term for, giving the Barack Obama, Harry Reid and their liberal special interest allies a clear path to find a replacement for the ballot.

By now I'm sure you have seen the reports that just this weekend Democrats found their new hand-picked candidate in Amanda Curtis, an activist one-term state representative backed heavily by the AFL-CIO and big liberal money.

With so much on the line the National Democrat Machine isn't wasting any time, re-launching an aggressive campaign behind Amanda Curtis to win this seat, protect Harry Reid's majority and help Obama advance his RADICAL agenda.

Make no mistake - Democrats know that they must win in Montana to save Harry Reid's iron-grip on the Senate and Barack Obama's liberal agenda.

That's why I'm asking you to make an immediate emergency contribution to my Senate campaign.

Will you stand with my campaign for U.S. Senate with an URGENT contribution at this critical time by following this secure link?

With just weeks until Election Day our campaign team is fighting day in and day out to win, so that I can take a bold stand for our conservative American principles in the U.S. Senate.

Frankly, we know the Democrats' tired old campaign playbook - they will say and do just about anything to mislead voters, resorting to the most dishonest attacks imaginable, in order to keep Obama's top ally in our federal government in charge in the Senate.

You CAN stand up to Barack Obama, Harry Reid, their hand-picked candidate Amanda Curtis and their liberal allies though, by standing with us in this fight!

This race is considered a top-pick opportunity for the Republican Party. I do believe the final outcome will be very close, and the fact is we MUST win this seat in Montana in order to win a new Republican majority in the U.S. Senate.

With JUST 77 DAYS until November 4th, I need your emergency support to respond to the Democrats' attacks against me, and to continue sharing my vision to bring real change to Washington, D.C. That means repealing Obamacare completely, balancing the federal budget and protecting the 2nd Amendment, right to life and the privacy rights of law-abiding Americans like you.

Will you please stand with me in this historic campaign and help defeat the Democrats' new hand-picked candidate with an emergency contribution today?

If we don't turn things around soon, the damage may be irreversible.

I know you agree that we need to do everything in our power to stand up to the liberal's Big Government agenda and reverse our nation's course. That's what I've been fighting to do as a member of the House Republican majority in Congress, and what I will continue to do if voters grant me the honor of serving Montana in the United States Senate.

Again, if you haven't clicked already, please do so right now and make an urgent contribution by following this secure link - every bit of support will help us reach more voters in the weeks ahead.

Thank you!

Tell Congress to impeach Eric Holder

From Public Advocate:

You probably know that last summer, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder refused to defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) before the Supreme Court.

When the Court issued a ruling that gutted the law, it opened the floodgates for activist judges to overturn Real Marriage laws.

Attorney General Holder's inaction was a political payoff to buy the Homosexual Lobby's support for struggling Democrats in this November's Congressional midterm elections.

Most Americans today are aware of the rash of activist judges overturning Real Marriage laws in one state after another.

But do they think Eric Holder should be able to pick and choose which laws he enforces for partisan political gains?

Public Advocate took to the streets to find out. Click here to watch the video of Public Advocate's "man on the street" survey.

After you've watched the video, please sign your petition to impeach Attorney General Holder for his dereliction of duty.

Public Advocate already collected and delivered over 20,000 petitions to the House of Representatives, so add your voice to the growing number of Americans demanding his removal from office.

For the Family,

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

P.S. Will you chip in $5 or $10 to help Public Advocate hold Eric Holder accountable for violating his oath of office and betraying Real Marriage?

Sign the statement to oppose Harry Reid

From RandPAC:

As this Congress skipped out of town for August recess, it has been blasted as a "Do Nothing Congress."

While I strongly believe in a limited role for government that resides within the bounds of the Constitution, Congress does have a duty to pass legislation that maximizes freedom and prosperity and strengthens our national defense.

Harry Reid doesn't seem to share that view.

He's blocking three of my bills that would have helped Americans by limiting government at home and standing by our allies abroad.

At a time when Americans are scratching and clawing to merely keep their heads above water due to President Obama's failed economic policies, my Audit the Fed bill and National Right to Work Acts would help create an economy where all could prosper.

President Obama's print-borrow-tax-and-spend policies are enabled by the unaccountable Federal Reserve.

Opening up their books for an audit would allow all Americans to see exactly how the Federal Reserve manipulates our money supply, destroys the purchasing power of the dollar and props up Big Government deficit spending.

If you want to stop Obama, you have to stop the Fed.

And passing a National Right to Work Act would unshackle our economy from union boss control.

Instead of lining the coffers of Big Labor with forced union dues, workers would keep their own money and be free to spend it how they see fit.

Our economy should create the conditions for everyday Americans, and not special interests like Big Labor, to prosper.

In world affairs, if America sounds an uncertain trumpet, our friends won't know we stand with them and our enemies won't fear us.

That's why I proposed the Stand with Israel Act.

This legislation will cut off the flow of taxpayer money to the Palestinian Authority government as long as they are aligned with the terrorist organization Hamas.

No one should question Israel's right to self-defense.

And not one penny of your money should flow to terrorists who attack Israel and refuse to recognize its right to exist.

But all of these vital pieces of legislation have one thing in common…

…They are stalled in Harry Reid's Senate.

This upcoming election is crucial for conservatives.

If we want to set our economy on a path for prosperity for all and reassert American leadership abroad, conservatives must remove Harry Reid as Majority Leader.

So I hope you'll stand with RANDPAC in the fight to elect Constitutional Conservatives this November by signing your "Statement of Republican Principles" right away.

Only a committed conservative movement will provide the energy and enthusiasm to end Harry Reid's reign as Senate Majority Leader.

Thank you for all that you do.

In Liberty,

Senator Rand Paul (R - KY)

P.S. Harry Reid is the one man standing in the way of the Senate passing conservative legislation to undo President Obama's train wreck.

But only a committed conservative movement will remove him as Majority Leader and pave the way for a change of course.

Please sign your "Statement of Republican Principles" and join RANDPAC in fighting to elect constitutional conservatives in November.

Resist EPA encroachment

From The Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow:

The Obama administration is currently proposing a new rule to regulate every ditch and puddle in the nation as a "water source" under the Clean Water Act.

Even worse, they want to bypass Congress and sidestep the Supreme Court along the way.

If they get away with this scheme, we can expect new layers of red tape and control over people responsibly using their own land. It must be stopped!

Please sign CFACT's petition and together let's tell EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers to "ditch" this ill-conceived land grab.

The public comment deadline is less than 90 days away - and we need your help to swamp the administration with these petitions!

For Green-Left ideologues dreaming of using the Clean Water Act to redefine the "waters of the United States" and bring vast amounts of land under control of the Environmental Protection Agency - this proposed water rule is a dream come true.

But the EPA is already out of control. It slapped a fine of $75,000 (PER DAY!) on Wyoming homeowners Katie and Andy Johnson for building a pond on their own property! How's a hard-working welder like Andy Johnson supposed to stand up against that?

Those who understand what this new proposed rule would really do want no part of it. That's why the bureaucrats want to keep their science secret and speak a language all their own.

That's also why farm bureaus across the nation kicked off their "ditch the rule" campaign, which CFACT is proud to advance.

We need as many signatures as we can get. Please sign CFACT's petition today and circulate it to as many people as possible.

CFACT is the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow, one of the nation's premier organizations dedicated to bringing a positive, market-oriented, and scientifically sound perspective to environmental issues.

Since our founding in 1985, we have fought tirelessly to protect American families, jobs, and businesses from the economy-crippling regulations being pushed by Green environmental extremists - regulations just like this insane land grab proposed by the federal government.

Won't you stand with us today by taking a moment to sign CFACT's petition right away?

Farmers and ranchers are especially threatened. This rule can literally cost them their farms - not to mention impact everyone's food prices.

But they're not alone.

Over 26.1 million U.S. homes rely on septic systems to process household waste. That's over 20 percent of all the homes in the nation the EPA will be able to target for control if they have standing water on their property or live anywhere near property that does.

This rule will also hammer communities and businesses across the country. As the President of the American Farm Bureau recently noted, this "proposed rule would impact everything from local governments trying to start or expand infrastructure projects to community gardens ... the rule will dictate land use across the United States." Even fireworks could be halted altogether in some places!

Millions of homeowners are in for a bureaucratic nightmare!

State and local governments have our non-navigable waters well in hand. They know better than bureaucrats in Washington what oversight homeowners, farmers, businesses and developers need to responsibly use their own land.

EPA has no valid scientific basis for pushing this rule. EPA's cost-benefit analysis is deeply flawed, employing decades-old cost estimates that were not adjusted for inflation, nor current economic and market conditions.

Let's cut straight to it. This rule is not about the environment. It's an attack on property rights and giving radical Green gadflies power to interfere with how other people responsibly use their land.

Will you stand by and let them succeed?

Stand up for your property rights, your neighbor's... everyone's.

Our government is bloated enough. Time to put it on a diet.

Sign CFACT's petition opposing this foolish land-grabbing water rule today and help us get thousands of signatures more.
Together let's tell the Obama administration to "ditch this rule."

Let's abolish the IRS

From RandPAC:

Crazies. $%#@!* Worse than alien terrorists.

That's how the IRS official at the heart of the targeting of tea party groups referred to conservatives.

While Lois Lerner claims her emails are forever lost due to a crashed hard drive, emails between her and an associate were recently released and they paint a disturbing picture of her views of conservatives.

President Obama has claimed there "isn't a smidgeon of corruption at the IRS."

Attorney General Eric Holder refuses to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS bullying tea party groups.

If the administration refuses to investigate this scandal it's time to turn out the lights, bars the doors and throw away the keys for good.

If you haven't had a chance to read my email below about RANDPAC's plan to end the IRS, I hope you'll take a few moments to do so.

After you read the email, please complete your "End the IRS" petition immediately.

If you have already taken action, please forward this email to as many of your friends as possible.

With the midterm elections less than 100 days away it's vital conservatives help RANDPAC elect candidates who will End the IRS.

Thank you for all you do.

In Liberty,

Senator Rand Paul

Senator Mike Lee endorses Dan Bongino for Congress

From Senator Mike Lee:

America needs a protector and defender.

America needs someone that will stand up and make tough decisions and put the health of our nation above his or her own needs.

That's why America needs former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino in the United State Congress -- someone who already knows firsthand what it means to serve our nation.

Dan Bongino has witnessed what goes on behind closed doors in Washington -- the backroom deals that very few elected officials are willing to stand up against. It's why Dan entered this race AND why I need him as an ally in Congress.

He is someone who will stand up to the career politicians who are financially and morally bankrupting our nation.

I am reaching out to you today because I need Dan Bongino as my partner in the House of Representatives. I need him to join me in the critical fight against the progressive agenda of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Obama.

Will you join me in supporting Dan Bongino for Congress by sending your most - generous contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more today?

Since becoming a senator in 2011, you and I have fought together to defend our conservative values, hold the President's lawless administration accountable, and protect Americans from economically damaging policies like Obamacare.

So it goes without saying that we recognize a fellow conservative patriot-at-arms when we see one. And Dan Bongino is the real deal.

As a Secret Service agent, Dan was tasked with protecting the agency's highest value assets -- the President of the United States. And now, Dan will protect the livelihood of all law-abiding, American citizens.

Dan will defend our Constitution from Obama's lawless White House. He will not let Obama continue to restrict our rights and add trillions to our National Debt.

I wouldn't ask if this race wasn't important; can I count on you to support Dan Bongino by sending $25, $50, $100 or more?

Without Dan in the House, Nancy Pelosi will once again become the Speaker. Can you imagine an America with Speaker Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Reid AND President Obama?

With that threesome in power, what they'd pass into law would undoubtedly further sink our country into an abyss. It would mean:

Cementing Obamacare as Obama's legacy law, stripping hard working Americans of their personal liberties by increasing their principles and deductibles;

Adding billions to the National Debt through a "spend now and deal with it later" mentality that would force our children and grandchildren to foot the bill for Washington's careless spending problem;

Degrading of the Constitution and the inalienable rights it ensures to American citizens through unconstitutional Executive Orders; AND

A full-on attack to the Second Amendment whether it's through legislation requiring a national gun registry or more restrictions for law-abiding citizens to carry.

Dan Bongino has put his life on the line time after time for our nation's security. Now, he is ready to do it again in Congress to defend the Constitution and America's best interests. Will you stand behind him?

Dan is a fighter, but he faces a tough battle. Dan Bongino needs the support of other like-minded patriots to win.

I am emailing you today because I know you agree that if Nancy Pelosi rejoins the ranks of Harry Reid and Barack Obama, our country will face irrevocable damage.

Can I count on you to send $25, $50, $100 or whatever you can to make sure Dan Bongino is able to protect our nation's best interests once again?

Dan's time as a Secret Service agent and his commitment to defending the Constitution makes him the perfect colleague in the House. Congressman Dan Bongino will join me to push through legislation that will lower taxes, protect individual freedoms, and restore liberty to our nation, thus forcing Obama, the commander of inaction to action.

Can I count on you? America needs more good men to protect and defend her. America is ready for a fresh start with Dan Bongino.

Sincerely,

Senator Mike Lee, Utah

P.S. Take it from someone who knows; Dan Bongino will always fight to protect or nation and defend our Constitution. We need to send him back to Washington on another mission, not as a Secret Service agent, but as a Congressman. Will you join me in supporting Dan Bongino by sending $25, $50, $100 or more today?

Help Public Advocate stand up to the rainbow mafia

From Public Advocate:

Tonight, after a long day of fighting the radical Homosexual Lobby, I just feel exhausted.

Beaten down, wrung out, and worn to the bone.

This year has been especially difficult -- and the Homosexual Lobby is more intimidating than ever.

Last summer, the U.S. Supreme Court gutted the Defense of Marriage Act, dubbing key parts of the law “unconstitutional.”

Just months later, the Homosexual Lobby rammed the Gay Bill of Special Rights through the Senate.

But then when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, the Radical Left hit a new low in their war on Christianity.

The Left recently set their sights on two historic crosses, demanding they be ripped up and torn down: the cross at the Mt. Soledad Veteran’s Memorial and the Ground Zero Cross displayed in the National September 11th Museum.

I see agents of the Radical Left every day. They dare me to stand in their way. They laugh and brag that they have the power to pass any legislation they want.

And with pro-homosexual Democrats still in power, the radical homosexuals say nothing can stop them.

I wonder if Sheila and the children should be here. It wasn’t all that long ago that I had to send my family away to a safe house.

What does it say when a ruthless adversary would rather attack my family than face me? I’ll never forget that.

My friend, without your support during this time, I’m not sure I will be able to manage things.

I know God has not given up on our families. I won’t either. I pray for your encouragement.

Never has the Homosexual Lobby and their allies been so vicious, so powerful, and so well-financed.

They have been strolling through the halls of Congress handing out campaign contributions like sweet candy, and even some so-called “conservative” Congressmen have taken the bait.

It’s just sad to watch. And trust me, people are watching.

When Congressmen and Senators see the power and riches of the radical homosexuals, they get tempted. You’d be surprised how many politicians are already bought and paid for.

They have their allies in most of the key positions in the Senate and White House, and the radical homosexuals are moving rapidly to pass their perverse agenda into law.

Speaking at a Homosexual Lobby fundraiser last month, President Obama boasted that since he took office, the number of openly homosexual judges has increased tenfold.

He proudly bragged of his plans to circumvent Congress, and to force the Gay Bill of Special Rights into effect.

Like serpents with apples, agents of the Homosexual Lobby are in the shadows, making deals and issuing threats.

And those who ignore their siren call are risking their political lives.

My friend, I see what is happening, and I am afraid.

Because when I return home from work long after midnight, I feel like I am trying to hold back the forces of the tide.

This is a time when, if we are not careful, everything we have worked for could fall apart.

I am speaking to you from the heart, my friend.

This time, we are facing an enemy who is riding high, and hungry for victims.

And they’ll have their fill if we don’t act. The Homosexual Lobby’s momentum has emboldened them to take their agenda even further.

They are fighting to have Christianity purged from America.

And now the Gay Bill of Special Rights, the Homosexual Classrooms Act, the Offense of Marriage Act and a host of other radical homosexual legislation are in line for votes.

But I am nearly at the breaking point.

So I am coming to you, asking for help like never before. I am asking you to put it on the line for what we believe in.

I am asking you for the strength to carry on.

Because what we are doing has never been so necessary, so important. And never have the odds been so stacked against us.

At the beginning of this note, I told you how down and tired I have been.

And it’s true.

But when things are at their worst, when I just can’t take another step, I think about what Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Jared Polis, Tammy Baldwin and all the other pro-homosexual Congressmen and Senators want to do to America.

I think about the Gay Bill of Special Rights and what it will do to religious freedom and our children’s safety.

My friend, this is the same bill we’ve been fighting every legislative session for decades.

And now pro-homosexual Democrats are even more determined than ever to finally pass it.

The Homosexual Lobby has already rammed the Gay Bill of Special Rights through the Senate.

Preventing it from passing in the House is the only way to stop this disastrous legislation from becoming law.

You see, unlike past years, we cannot count on a White House veto. President Obama acts as a lap dog for the radical Homosexual Lobby.

He ordered the U.S. Solicitor General to ignore his official duties and refuse to defend the federal government and the Defense of Marriage Act in the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Obama administration’s blatant disregard for the law left DOMA defenseless to the Homosexual Lobby’s attacks in court.

You and I have seen President Obama and the Homosexual Lobby will stop at nothing. And I know what their victory will do to the families of America.

When I’m exhausted, I reflect on how I will feel if I don’t do everything in my power to stop them. I would never be able to forgive myself -- or look my children in the eye.

And then, from somewhere, I get the energy to carry on, to go forward. And I rejoin the battle.

So now, I am coming to you.

The simple truth is that I can’t do this alone.

So you now have a choice to make.

Will you join me in taking a stand?

You and I have a chance to make history, to stop the Homosexual Lobby just as everything seems lost.

No one thinks we can do it. Some so-called Washington “conservatives” have already given up.

But I will not compromise. I will not “cut deals” with the enemies of the American Family.

Never. Under any circumstances.

I will do what is right and I will always keep my promise to you.

We may lose a fight or two, but with you standing by me, I know we will make it in the end.

And now the rest is up to you, for our financial situation is incredibly delicate.

As you know, we have never had the financial resources of the Homosexual Lobby.

We don’t have the limousines, the plush offices, the tens of millions of dollars from the Hollywood elites or the tax dollars that they have at their disposal.

But that’s fine.

Because I have always said that with family, faith and hard work, we can move mountains.

And in the past, we’ve done just that.

But now, we are dangerously low on money. And without an emergency gift from you today, our work will be in serious jeopardy.

So can I count on you to make a special, one-time gift to my office?

If you could give $15 right now, it would really make a huge difference.

Things are so serious that I don’t know what to do -- except to turn to prayer, and to you.

So please, give what you can. Even $10 or $5 would be such a special surprise -- a Godsend.

I know what a sacrifice this is. Believe me, if I could pay for this on my own, I would.

But the truth is, I don’t have the money, so I am coming to you with open hands.

This is a struggle for all of us to be a part of. So whatever you can afford, please send it in immediately.

$15, $10, $5, or any amount you can manage -- I need it badly.

No matter how discouraged I become at times, I know that what we are doing is important. I know that we are on the right side.

We are leading this fight; we are on the line -- together.

The Homosexual Lobby is bragging that the passage of the Gay Bill of Special Rights is inevitable, and they swear they’ll pass the Offense of Marriage Act and the Homosexual Classrooms Act next -- one right after another.

These three pieces of legislation will force perverse homosexual lifestyles on our schools, churches and military.

And with Justice Kagan on the Supreme Court and in the back pocket of the Homosexual Lobby, pro-Family Americans can be assured the Homosexual Agenda will be imposed on America via judicial fiat.

I have devoted everything I have to this battle and, at times in the past, even risked my life. My family has made many great sacrifices too.

You have trusted me, sacrificed to keep our work going, and I will never forget what you have done. Thank you, and thank God.

This is our time to stand tall!

Join me, and we will make history.

God Bless You.

For the Family,

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

P.S. Since the Defense of Marriage Act was struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court and the Gay Bill of Special Rights passed the Senate, President Obama has boasted of his plans to ram even more of the Homosexual Agenda through via Executive Order.

This is a crisis. We don’t have any time to lose.

This is the battle of a lifetime.

Your gift of $15, $10, or $5 and prayers are more important now than ever before.

Stop Obama and the unions from stacking the Labor Board

From The National Right to Work Committee:

President Barack Obama and his Big Labor puppet masters are at it again.

As you may know, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously held this summer that Obama's bogus "recess" appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) were unconstitutional.

Now with a seat about to open back up on the NLRB, Obama has renominated Sharon Block -- one of the forced-unionism partisans who sat on the Board and illegally participated in hundreds of decisions!

It's time to start turning up the heat on the U.S. Senate at once.

That's because Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made your job as grassroots citizens even more difficult.

You see, last year, Reid pulled the so-called "nuclear option" and broke the rules to gut the filibuster.

That allows Reid to ram Barack Obama's radical nominations through the U.S. Senate with the slimmest majorities.

Not only that, Reid could delay a vote until a "lame duck" session after losing his pro-forced-unionism majority in November, hoping concerned citizens like you aren't paying attention.

But you and I have stopped him before from underhanded tactics like that, such as when we killed the Police and Firefighter Monopoly Bargaining Bill in the "lame duck" session in 2010.

So please, help me start turning up the pressure at once.

Sign your petition to your U.S. Senators opposing Sharon Block's nomination to the NLRB by clicking here.

Congress is on vacation until Labor Day, and I want to be able to start flooding Senate offices with your petitions as soon as they get back.

The NLRB has been ground zero for Barack Obama's paybacks to Big Labor.

Obama's end-around of the Constitution was the most egregious example yet.

The Supreme Court unanimously struck that down, but what kind of message does the Senate send if it lets him get away with it?

That's why I'm counting on your action at once.

Please sign your petition opposing Sharon Block right away.

And after you do, I hope you'll chip in with a contribution of $10 or more to help your National Right to Work Committee turn up the heat.

But most importantly, please sign your petition right away.

Sincerely,

Mark Mix

P.S. After the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Barack Obama's "recess" appointments to the NLRB, Obama has renominated one of those same forced-unionism partisans to the Board.

Pedophilia and NPR

From Public Advocate:

If the Homosexual Lobby and their ultra-liberal cohorts have their way, pedophilia will be the next “normal.”

Public Advocate has been warning for years that this was coming.

The pedophilia agenda is now emerging in more mainstream venues like National Public Radio (NPR), which has long supported the radical Homosexual Agenda.

Recently, NPR ran a segment trying to convince their audience that pedophiles are completely normal.

To be clear: they think adults who actively desire to have sexual relations with children are just like you and me.

NPR wants you and me and the rest of America to see things the way pedophiles do.

The concluding line of this segment was particularly haunting:

Imagine being a teenager and being told never to act on your sexual feelings ever for the rest of your life. That's what we're asking of these people.

It’s a bad thing to tell a pedophile they will never get to have sexual relations with children?!

It is if you ask the Homosexual Lobby and their leftist allies.

They envision a future where we tell pedophiles that it is OKAY for them to desire children; that it is okay for them to ACT on these feelings.

The 19 year old that was the focus of this story said he is afraid to ever have a child of his own, because the desire to molest his own child would be too strong.

This is not natural and it is not an “orientation.”

It is a mental disease and there is no other way to view it.

Pedophiles need psychological and medical treatment, not validation.

Their desires make them dangerous.

Advocates of normalized pedophilia are focused on striking it from the American Psychiatric Association’s (APA) official list of mental diseases.

They want pedophilia reclassified as a “Sexual Orientation.”

And that phrase is very important.

You see, the Homosexual Lobby has already passed considerable legislation to project and elevate anything officially classified as a “sexual orientation.”

This means that pedophilia would instantly become a protected status if the Gay Bill of Special Rights becomes law.

And it makes President Obama's Homosexual Privilege Executive Order -- which bypassed Congress to preemptively enforce the Gay Bill of Special Rights on all federal contractors -- all the more dangerous.

The Homosexual Lobby and their ultra-liberal allies are working furiously to legitimize legal acceptance of pedophilia.

Last year, the APA initially announced pedophilia was being upgraded to a “sexual orientation.”

Fortunately, the public backlash forced them to retract the change.

And while they claimed it was just a typo, it seems obvious that they must have at least been considering it.

How long until they reclassify it for good?

If pedophiles ever receive the legal classification of “sexual orientation,” the Gay Bill of Special Rights will force American society to embrace them as “normal.”

Including Christian schools, churches, and charities that uphold Traditional Values.

And it will automatically extend to protect pedophiles if the APA ever changes its classification.

That's just part of the reason your Public Advocate is working so hard to prevent the Gay Bill of Special Rights from ever being law.

And with your support, Public Advocate will continue to fight the normalization of pedophilia.

For the Family,

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

P.S. Will you chip in $5 or $10 to help fund Public Advocate's efforts against the Gay Bill of Special Rights and the normalization of pedophilia?


I'm getting tired of NPR. With their anti-male sexism and now their pro-child molestation angle. NPR has to go and we need to contact Congress-the House and Senate and let them know we are tired of NPR and their irresponsible broadcasting at taxpayer's expense. They don't allow conservative or men's rights voices on NPR so why should we continue to finance them? We should so let demand that Congress defund them.

No more debt ceiling increases

From The National League Of Taxpayers:

They used to call it graft.

Now they call it crony capitalism and untold millions have been made by those in the know.

A case in point is Richard Blum, billionaire husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein of California:

***When the housing market crashed in 2008, Blum raked in $108 million selling foreclosed homes the government bought.

***In 2012 Blum invested $1 million in green energy company Amyris which only weeks later received $24 million from the Department of Energy.

***While Feinstein was the chair of the Senate Military Construction Subcommittee, $1.5 billion was given to defense contractors, resulting in a $5-$10 million profit for Blum.

This brand of "crony capitalism" may be legal, but it's not right.

But of course, with a government as big and out of control as ours, it could not be any other way.

Big government naturally creates a pool of big spending politicians who tax us in every way possible, and then use that money to make their cronies richer.

That’s why you and I must fight to give the power and the money back to the people, and take it away from tax-and-spend politicians and their cronies.

And why we must say no – no – no to any further expansion of government.

Sincerely,

Gary Paumen, President
National League of Taxpayers

Sign the no special deals petition

From RandPAC:

Washington, D.C. insiders get their special taxpayer-backed “deals,” perks, exemptions and ObamaCare subsidies.

The American people get stuck with the tab . . .

Whether it’s the infamous glitches, cut hours, layoffs, higher premiums, or citizens losing their existing health insurance, the American people are getting their first taste of ObamaCare.

That’s bad enough.

But thanks to special subsidies Congress created for itself, many of the same politicians who voted to impose this monstrosity on the rest of us are getting off virtually scot-free.

This can’t be allowed to continue.

I introduced a Constitutional Amendment to stop my colleagues from passing legislation that doesn't apply equally to U.S. citizens, the Executive Branch, Congress and the Supreme Court.

If Chief Justice Roberts likes ObamaCare so much, he can live under it.

And I’m counting on you to sign your “NO SPECIAL DEALS” petition urging your Congressman and Senators to co-sponsor my Constitutional Amendment IMMEDIATELY.

It’s no secret Washington, D.C. is chock-full of people who think they can run our lives better than we can.

They just don’t want to have to live under the laws they pass for the rest of us.

Maybe they really do think they’re “better.” Or “smarter.” Or just flat-out “more important.”

To many Americans, there is no better example of Washington, D.C. being out of touch and out of whack than special deals like we saw in ObamaCare. To many, it’s like rubbing salt in our wounds.

After all, aren’t politicians supposed to serve the people who elect them – not take advantage of them?

As the ObamaCare fiasco unfolds, more and more Americans are beginning to understand what we’ve been served isn’t exactly appetizing.

*** Millions of Americans had their health insurance canceled;

*** More and more employers are cutting hours to avoid ObamaCare’s outrageous mandates. Last year, six full-time jobs were created for every one part-time job. But this year, only one full-time job is being created for every four part-time jobs;

*** According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, 71% of small businesses say ObamaCare makes it harder to grow. Nearly one-quarter says they’ll reduce hiring to ensure they never exceed 50 total employees, which would create new mandates and costs under the program;

*** ObamaCare is expected to increase the average family of four’s healthcare spending by nearly $4,000 by 2016. And that’s not even counting ObamaCare’s $1 TRILLION in new taxes over the next decade.

Yet Washington, D.C.'s insider class – from Chief Justice John Roberts who signed off on this unconstitutional law to members of Congress – don’t have to feel the American people's pain?

Maybe if more of my colleagues had to live under the regulatory boondoggles they pass, maybe they’d pass fewer and fewer of them.

That’s why it’s so important you sign your "NO SPECIAL DEALS" petition right away.

And, if you can, please chip in a generous contribution of $10 or $20.

The fact is, without your help, I’m afraid this won’t be the last time Washington, D.C. insiders try to pass special deals for themselves.

But if you and I can create a firestorm of outrage, will my colleagues in Congress really fight to defend their insider deals?

If they do, they’ll pay the price at the polls. And that price could be severe.

But first things first.

It’s up to you and me to create the firestorm.

So please sign your "NO SPECIAL DEALS" petition right away.

And, if you can, please chip in a generous contribution of $10 or $20 right away.

I know that’s a lot.

But this fight is critical.

How long can our Republic survive so long as politicians think they’re above the rest of us?

You and I both know the answer is “not long.”

But if $10 or $20 is just too much, please chip in a contribution of $5 today.

Thank you so much for your support.

In Liberty,

Senator Rand Paul (R - KY)

P.S. To many Americans, there is no better example of Washington, D.C. being out of touch and out of whack than special deals like we saw in ObamaCare. To many, it’s like rubbing salt in our wounds.

Just recently, I introduced a Constitutional Amendment to stop my colleagues from passing legislation that doesn't apply equally to U.S. citizens, the Executive Branch, Congress and the Supreme Court.

But I’m counting on your support to create a grassroots tidal wave in support of my amendment.

So please sign your “NO SPECIAL DEALS” petition urging your Congressman and Senators to cosponsor my Constitutional Amendment and chip in a generous contribution of $20, $10 or even $5 IMMEDIATELY!

Senator Rand Paul: the Democrats number one enemy

From RandPAC:

They've painted a bulls-eye on my back.

This past week, the Democratic National Committee fired out TEN press releases attacking me.

In fact, one news outlet labeled me as the Democrats #1 enemy.

It's not hard to figure out why.

A recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll showed 64% of Americans are dissatisfied with our role in the world and 62% are fed up with the state of the economy.

President Obama's failed foreign policy created a jihadist wonderland in Iraq and Libya and has left our ally Israel uncertain of America's commitment.

The ObamaCare rollout -- this socialized medicine scheme -- was a debacle and is every bit the job-killing disaster I predicted.

And President Obama's tax-borrow-print-and-spend economic policies ballooned our debt to over $17 trillion and grounded economic recovery to a halt.

But my message of limited government, respect for the Bill of Rights and a strong American foreign policy that draws power from a wise deployment of American military might is catching fire.

So I'm not surprised the left is throwing everything but the kitchen sink at me ahead of the midterm elections.

Harry Reid's position as Senate Majority Leader teeters on the verge of slipping away.

And the first step to changing America is changing leadership in the Senate.

The Democrats can fire as many attacks at me as they want.

The more attacks they launch my way, the more they betray their desperation as the liberty movement gathers steam.

The American public is poised to reject President Obama's disastrous policies both at home and abroad.

So I hope you'll join RANDPAC in fighting to elect constitutional conservatives this November by signing your "Statement of Republican Principles" right away.

Only by taking action can conservatives convert a favorable political environment into results this November.

In Liberty,

Senator Rand Paul (R - KY)

P.S. One news outlet dubbed me "the Democrats #1 Enemy"

Last week they blasted out TEN press releases attacking me for campaigning for our conservative values.

Please sign your "Statement of Republican Principles" and join RANDPAC in fighting to elect constitutional conservatives in November.


The Democrats can add me to their shitlist too becausing I'm endorsing Senator Paul. I hope he is the biggest thorn in Hillary's side reminding her of the responsibilities of the job she neglected,how she tries to avoid accountability and the men she left to die in Benghazi. Senator Paul has grilled her on these questions so we all know he is not afraid of her. Let's show we are beind Senator Paul by signing that petition today. The best way to keep Hillary out of the Whitehouse is to Stop Hillary now.

Obamacare reminder

From The National League Of Taxpayers:

Going into the next three months, you and I must not let the American people forget the disastrous reality of ObamaCare.

Widespread canceled coverage.

Massive premium hikes for lower quality coverage.

Employers laying off hundreds of employees, or moving full-time employees to part-time work to escape the heavy burden of ObamaCare.

The Obama Administration knows how politically toxic ObamaCare has become.

That’s why they’ve been trying to bury it with the constant rule changes and delays until after the November elections, in an attempt to give his vulnerable tax-and-spend cronies in Congress some cover.

In fact, even prominent apologists for the president are reaching their breaking point.

Inspired by the endless exemptions Barack Obama keeps conjuring up, the National Journal’s Ron Fournier recently wrote a column titled, “Why I’m Getting Sick of Defending Obamacare.”

And even Kirsten Powers, another prominent pro-Obama apologist, reacted with an “amen, brother.”

Obama’s latest unilateral decree is a two-year delay on imposing the employer mandate on businesses that employ between 50 and 99 people.

This employer mandate will, of course, create a financial incentive for employers to fire current workers and decide against hiring new ones, so they can stay below 99 employees -- but conveniently for Democratic Senators running this fall, not until after the elections.

In fact, even Fournier recognizes the game that Obama is playing.

“Not coincidentally,” he writes, “the delays punt implementation beyond congressional elections in November.”

The fact is, Obama knows that despite the cancellations and job loss we’ve suffered so far, America hasn’t seen anything yet.

The full implementation of all ObamaCare’s expensive, job-killing mandates will be an even bigger disaster, so he wants to delay it until after the coming election, to try and protect his buddies that voted for it.

Obama fears that invoking the anger of concerned taxpayers like you will ensure that ObamaCare’s supporters feel the heat, especially during this election cycle.

That is why between now and November, you and I must do everything possible to keep ObamaCare fresh in the minds of voters, and remember the tax-and-spend members of Congress who voted for it in the first place.

Sincerely,

Gary Paumen, President
National League of Taxpayers

P.S. If you have not already signed your “Repeal ObamaCare” petition, click here to do so right away.

And if you can, I hope you will make a special contribution to expand the reach of our “Repeal ObamaCare” campaign. We receive no government funding.

Since Congress is in recess until September I thought why not relax with some comedy relief. Here are some classic videos from George Carlin and Bob Newhart.

The unions are trying to sabotage right to work law in Michigan

From The National Right To Work Committee:

“This could be a game changer with HUGE national implications.”

I still remember those thoughts running through the back of my head as I watched the Michigan State Legislature vote to make Michigan America’s 24th Right to Work state in late 2012 . . .

After all, Michigan is the United Autoworkers’ (UAW) home turf!

The state has been considered Big Labor’s backyard for decades!

In 2012 it became America’s 24th Right to Work state.

That means no worker, private or public, can be forced to pay union dues or fees to get or keep a job.

But now, less than two years later, I’m concerned it could all go up in smoke.

You see, the union bosses are going all-out to DESTROY Michigan’s Right to Work Law this election year.

And without your action today, I’m afraid they just may succeed.

I’ll explain the stakes in this fight could not be any higher . . .

That’s why I’ve just recently set up the Emergency Michigan Right to Work Defense Fund.

And I must ask for your most generous support IMMEDIATELY.

You see, passage of any state Right to Work Law anywhere in the country is always a big cause for celebration.

But Michigan is different . . .

For decades Big Labor ruled Michigan with an iron fist.

And those forced union dues -- stripped from the paychecks of Michigan workers who would be fired if they didn’t pay -- funded a massive chunk of Big Labor’s multi-billion dollar NATIONAL political machine.

That’s right.

Forced dues extracted from Michigan workers not only helped union bosses keep a stranglehold on Lansing, but on Washington, D.C., as well.

Union bosses raided their forced-dues coffers to bankroll the elections and re-elections of union-label politicians like President Barack Obama, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

I know you understand the steep price we’ve paid nationally for Big Labor’s forced-dues racket.

But just consider Michigan’s fall as a national economic power over the past few decades . . .

In 1960, Detroit was the richest per capita city in the United States as manufacturing drove a booming statewide economy.

But when much of the nation was experiencing an economic boom after the recession in the early 2000's, Michigan was mired in a notorious “lost decade,” shedding over 840,000 jobs!

Those lost jobs, fleeing citizens and union-label politicians’ outrageous policies all finally culminated in the City of Detroit being forced to declare bankruptcy.

The good news is, the people of Michigan finally had enough!

And since passing Right to Work -- which simply states that no Michigan worker can be forced to financially support a union as a condition of employment -- Michigan has seen a massive economic turnaround including:

***Catapulting to second in the nation in manufacturing job creation – just behind Indiana, which passed a Right to Work law in February 2012;

***An unemployment rate lower than at any time in the past five years as the number of unemployed Michiganders has dropped by 30% since 2010;

***Surging to ninth in the nation in per capita income growth! All this has the union bosses steaming mad.

After all, the union bosses know that as more Americans see the economic benefits of Right to Work, the more momentum it creates for passage of a National Right to Work Law!

But since nearly 80% of Americans already oppose forced unionism, the union bosses also know the real key to keeping and expanding political power is their ability to inflict pain at the ballot box.

That’s why the union bosses are gunning for Michigan with a massive two-part plan using everything they have in 2014.

Big Labor’s publically stated goal is take out as many pro-Right to Work Michigan state legislators at the ballot box as possible.

The union bosses know that as long as politicians fear a Big Labor-fueled backlash at the ballot box, they’ll cower at the thought of taking on the union bosses’ forced unionism power.

Should the union bosses fail, they know more and more state legislatures throughout the country will be emboldened to pass Right to Work.

Their forced-dues political empire could begin to crumble.

Their stranglehold on Washington, D.C. could begin to loosen.

That’s why Michigan is so important.

So won't you please consider making your most generous contribution of $25, $15, $5, or whatever you can afford right away.

Of course, because forced unionism is the law in all areas where the federal government has jurisdiction -- even in Right to Work states -- a National Right to Work Law is the ultimate solution to Big Labor’s forced dues racket.

But state Right to Work laws are a BIG deal. And, as I mentioned, Michigan’s is one of the BIGGEST.

That’s why I recently set up the Emergency Michigan Right to Work Defense Fund -- and why I’m counting on your IMMEDIATE support.

The union bosses are going to resort to every political trick in the book to bring forced-union dues back to Michigan.

You and I have to be there ready to fight back every step of the way, including:

Paying for targeted mail and email to ensure Michigan citizens get the truth about how Right to Work has been an important and massive step forward;

Writing op-eds and conducting statewide media tours to dispel the outright LIES the union bosses WILL be spreading about Right to Work;

Running hard-hitting TV ads reminding citizens of the brutal days during Michigan’s “lost decade;”

Running a full-scale Candidate Survey Program to ensure every one of the union bosses’ radical hand-picked candidates are EXPOSED.

Of course, this all takes money.

And with the AFL-CIO pouring in $60 million, it’s going to take a lot to hold our own against Big Labor.

But really there is no choice. The stakes are just too high.

That’s why the Emergency Michigan Right to Work Defense Fund must be mobilized -- and why I’m counting on your most generous and IMMEDIATE support.

Won’t you please agree to your most generous gift of $25 right away?


I know that’s a lot.

But we simply must have all hands on deck.

But if $25 is just too much, won’t you please agree to $15 or at least $5?

Your generosity today could make a world of difference.

The national union bosses are going after Michigan’s Right to Work Law with everything they have.

You and I MUST fight back.

Please agree to your most generous contribution of $25, $15 or at least $5 TODAY!

Sincerely,

Mark Mix
President

P.S. The truth is, the national union bosses are going after Michigan’s Right to Work Law with everything they have this election year.

The AFL-CIO recently pledged to spend up to $60 million this year in Michigan alone!

This fight has HUGE ramifications for Right to Work supporters all over the country, so it’s absolutely critical you help me fight back TODAY!

So won’t you please agree to your most generous contribution of $25, $15 or at least $5 IMMEDIATELY?

Preserve the Fourth Amendment

From RandPAC:

I stood on the Senate floor for almost 13 hours filibustering John Brennan's nomination to be Director of the CIA.

And I also voted against his confirmation.

In light of the disturbing new revelations that John Brennan didn't tell the truth when he stated that the CIA never spied on the Senate, it's time for heads to roll.

You see, a new inspector general's report details how the CIA snooped around the computers of Senate staffers in a clear violation of the Fourth Amendment.

It’s illegal for the CIA to spy on Americans.

Director Brennan should dismiss those who broke the law and he should be relieved of his post.

But Congress should not rest until the Fourth Amendment is defended just as fiercely as the First or Second Amendment.

President Obama's administration has a sorry history of treating our rights -- against unreasonable search and seizure -- as a doormat.

Last year we learned about the NSA's warrantless spying program that mined through our phone calls and emails.

And now we learn the CIA trained its "watchful eye" on the Senate.

The Obama administration has flown off the hinges in their blatant disregard for basic Constitutional protections.

But holding John Brennan accountable for an administration that wipes their feet all over the Fourth Amendment isn't enough.

That's why I hope you'll stand with me in this fight by signing your "Fourth Amendment Protection Act" petition right away.

This bill will prevent the government from sifting through the emails of American citizens and require them to obtain a warrant before searching the data of specific terrorist suspects.

America needs a Congress that will defend the bill of rights.

Help RANDPAC elect constitutional conservatives this November who will fight to restore the rule of law by adding your voice today.

In Liberty,

Senator Rand Paul (R - KY)

P.S. CIA Director John Brennan failed to tell the truth when he claimed the CIA wasn't spying on the Senate.

It's time for him to be relieved of his post.

But holding Director Brennan accountable won't restore our Fourth Amendment rights.

Please sign your "Fourth Amendment Protection Act" petition and help RANDPAC elect constitutional conservatives this November who will defend the rule of law.
