Reschedule marijuana to Schedule 5 status

There has been talk about marijuana legalization buzzing around the net especially on yahoo. Which is good because I favor legalization. If you do too get involved in the process by writing your elected officials and getting the laws changed. There is also marijuana activist pressure on the DEA to reclassify marijuana from Schedule 1 which is defined as:

Schedule I Controlled Substances

Substances in this schedule have no currently accepted medical use in the United States, a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision, and a high potential for abuse.

Some examples of substances listed in Schedule I are: heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), marijuana (cannabis), peyote, methaqualone, and 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine ("Ecstasy").


Clearly marijuana is not even close to heroin,LSD or meth. Too argue that they are is sheer absurdity. Like I said the goal is move marijuana to Schedule 2 which is defined as:

Schedule II/IIN Controlled Substances (2/2N)

Substances in this schedule have a high potential for abuse which may lead to severe psychological or physical dependence.

Examples of Schedule II narcotics include: hydromorphone (Dilaudid®), methadone (Dolophine®), meperidine (Demerol®), oxycodone (OxyContin®, Percocet®), and fentanyl (Sublimaze®, Duragesic®). Other Schedule II narcotics include: morphine, opium, codeine, and hydrocodone.

Examples of Schedule IIN stimulants include: amphetamine (Dexedrine®, Adderall®), methamphetamine (Desoxyn®), and methylphenidate (Ritalin®).

Other Schedule II substances include: amobarbital, glutethimide, and pentobarbital.


That's not good enough. I want to reschedule marijuana to Schedule 5 which is defined as:

Schedule V Controlled Substances

Substances in this schedule have a low potential for abuse relative to substances listed in Schedule IV and consist primarily of preparations containing limited quantities of certain narcotics.

Examples of Schedule V substances include: cough preparations containing not more than 200 milligrams of codeine per 100 milliliters or per 100 grams (Robitussin AC®, Phenergan with Codeine®), and ezogabine.

I believe Schedule 5 is much more realistic than Schedules 1 and 2 are. If you agree contact your Congressperson and Senators and tell them to change the laws.

A thank you from Campaign For Liberty

From Campaign For Liberty:

Wow!

When I woke up this morning and looked at the ticker on our Moment of Truth Audit the Fed Money Bomb page, I was blown away by what I saw.

The ticker had passed $100,000 overnight!

We did it! We reached our goal!

And I can't thank you enough for your tremendous support during our Moment of Truth Audit the Fed Money Bomb.

I and everyone else at Campaign for Liberty are grateful and humbled by this outpouring of support.

Because of your support, our three-part plan to force Congress on record on Audit the Fed will get off to a strong start!

But that's not all.

Janet Yellen and her cronies at the Fed have also taken notice.

In fact, just yesterday, on the final day of our Audit the Fed Money Bomb, Janet Yellen held an emergency closed-door "private briefing" with a number of Democrat Senators.

There's no telling what type of threats she levied at those who refuse to protect Fed secrecy, or what type of sweetheart deals she offered to those who help KILL Audit the Fed.

What I do know is that thanks to your generous support, the banksters are on notice - and they're frightened.

Campaign for Liberty’s Director of Legislation, Tim Shoemaker, and I are on Capitol Hill today to meet with Senators about cosponsoring Audit the Fed.

And you can be sure I'm going to show them our Money Bomb ticker so they know that C4L members and supporters are FIRED UP and ready to AUDIT THE FED!

Take a moment and check out the ticker for yourself!

Thanks again for your generous support!

- Norm

P.S. The ticker on our Money Bomb page is still live.

Please feel free to chip in to bump it up a little higher and help strengthen our lobbying efforts on Capitol Hill today.

Support the National Right To Work Act

From The National Right To Work Committee:

It's vital that you sign your petitions immediately.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, Barack Obama and the Big Labor bosses are about to go ballistic.

You see, the National Right to Work Act will be introduced to repeal forever Big Labor's power to force workers to pay union dues just to get or keep a job.

So the union lobbyists, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and their allies are going to use every trick in the book to bury the National Right to Work Act.

And they want to do it as quietly as possible.

The union kingpins (and their water-carriers in Congress) can't afford the consequences of having their coercive privileges publicly debated and voted on in Congress!

They don't want the American people to know that:

***Millions of workers are forced to surrender part of every paycheck to keep their jobs.

This cash funds violent "organizing" drives, provides a limousine lifestyle for union bigwigs and bankrolls radical, tax-and-spend politicians like Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.

***Big Labor's power is deadly to millions of small businesses.

Big Labor politicians and Obama-stacked bureaucracies are strangling small businesses with confiscatory taxes, destructive laws and straitjacket regulations.

***Forced unionism exports millions of good jobs overseas.

Productivity-killing work rules, workplace class warfare, slowdowns, "sick-outs" and strikes have all taken their crippling toll, closing the doors of many businesses -- for good.

***Big Labor thugs often use their forced-unionism power to terrorize workers and communities with violent strikes, where they have gotten away with beatings, arson, extortion -- even murder!

In the fight for a National Right to Work law, opponents of forced unionism will face a showdown against the full might of Big Labor.

That's why it's vital that you act at once to ignite massive public support for a National Right to Work bill.

Now is the time to act.

By the time the Right to Work Act comes up for a vote, every member of Congress must realize the eyes of the American people will be watching.

National opinion polls show that nearly 80% of the American people think it's wrong to force workers to pay union dues under the threat of being fired if they don't pay!

And it's critical the National Right to Work Committee, who has led the fight against forced dues for over 50 years, has your help in demonstrating that to Congress.

If the public's attention is fixed on this battle, Congress will be forced to recognize -- or defy to their peril -- the massive public opposition to compulsory unionism.

Then we'll see who dares to stand with Big Labor . . .

. . . And who stands with freedom and the American people.

So please sign your petitions to Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, your Senators and Congressman immediately.

Your petitions will demonstrate to Congress and the national media the strong support for Right to Work.

It's all part of the National Right to Work Committee's five-part plan to pass a National Right to Work law:

•Run TV and radio ads targeting swing votes in key states and districts.

•Place full-page newspaper ads coast-to-coast, explaining to the American people what's at stake.

•Contact directly by mail up to 10 million supporters urging them to demand their Senators and Congressmen vote for the National Right to Work Act.

•Brief personally the hundreds of favorable columnists, radio talk show hosts and editorial writers nationwide who can help mobilize public opinion.

•Crank up massive phone banks in the days before the vote to really make Congress feel the heat.

It's critical in this battle that Congress hears loud and clear from the nearly 80% of Americans who support Right to Work.

Of course, Congress may choose to obey Big Labor bosses rather than the majority of their constituents. That's their choice.

But time and again, when politicians defied the public and voted for forced unionism, they've paid the price with the end of their political careers!

Of course, this whole effort will be very expensive.

An all-out media and direct-mail blitz to mobilize massive public pressure on Congress will be the key to success.

To pay for the expensive ads, mailings, phone banks and other efforts, it's urgent you send a special contribution to the National Right to Work Committee today.

Will you make a generous contribution of $100, $50, $25 or $10 to launch the next crucial phase for ultimate passage of a National Right to Work law?

It's vital you act immediately to put the politicians' feet to the fire to bring the National Right to Work Act up for a vote.

It would be a crime to let politicians who support compulsory unionism off the hook.

Up against the forced-dues fed, billion-dollar might of Big Labor, all the Committee has on their side is truth, public opinion . . .

. . . And you!

Unlike Big Labor, the National Right to Work Committee doesn't have (or want) the power to force anyone to pay dues.

So it has to depend on generous folks like you.

Please don't make it easy for Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama and Big Labor to bury the National Right to Work Act.

Some folks have already sent $500, $1,000 and even more. For others, a contribution of $10 or $20 has been as much as they could afford.

Please sign your petitions so we can demonstrate to Congress and the media the strong support for Right to Work.

Without your contribution of $100, $50, $25 or $10, the National Right to Work Committee won't be able to contact 10 million Americans, place the advertising, staff phone banks or do anything else to put Big Labor on the spot with a public vote on the National Right to Work Act.

And if you and I don't press forward now, we may never have a chance like this again.

Please help today.

Be sure to sign your petitions to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker John Boehner, your Senators and Congressman.

And after you sign, please consider a generous contribution of $100, $50, $25 or $10 to the National Right to Work Committee.

Sincerely,

Rand Paul
United States Senator

P.S. Since most Americans oppose Big Labor's forced-unionism powers, a public debate on a National Right to Work law is Big Labor's (and their water-carriers' in Congress) worst nightmare!

So please, sign your petitions to Congress.

And after you sign, please consider your most generous contribution of $100, $50, $25 or $10 to the National Right to Work Committee today.

Demand Title II Net Neutrality

From Demand Progress:

With the FCC so close to finally passing real Net Neutrality rules, things are getting ugly in Congress. Last week we told you that Sen. John Thune and Rep. Fred Upton are pushing fake Net Neutrality legislation — dubbed, nefariously enough, "Title X" — at the behest of Comcast and the other big ISPs.

Will you call your lawmakers to tell them to oppose it? It'll just take a couple of minutes, and will help save the Internet.

It's easy to see what's going on here: Nearly every last person and organization that's backing this proposal has historically OPPOSED Net Neutrality, and now they're trying to gut the FCC's authority to implement meaningful rules.

As the key committees held hearings last week you bombarded the members' offices with tens of thousands of calls -- and that seems to have brushed back potential supporters from signing on.

But it's not a done deal yet, and we need to shut this thing down before it moves an inch.

Let's stop this bill before it starts — Please click here to call Congress now.

While the Thune-Upton bill is disguised as Net Neutrality legislation, it would actually just protect the phone and cable broadband duopoly from oversight. It legalizes a lot of harmful discriminatory practices by preventing the FCC from moving on its own to adopt and enforce rules.

We need to keep ensuring that this proposed legislation is exposed for what it is: a cynical cable-lobby effort to prevent the FCC keeping the Internet open and nondiscriminatory.

Will you call your lawmakers to tell them to oppose it? It'll just take a couple of minutes, and will help save the Internet.

Thanks.

Demand Progress


If making a call is out of the question then you can always email your Congressperson and Senators and tell them to enact Title II Net Neutrality. Demand Progress will also connect you to the FCC after you've spoken to your legislators. In the event you cannot talk on the phone to the FCC you can contact their commissioners and tell them you've spoken with your legislators and that you want them to Implement Title II Net Neutrality.

Kick Al Sharpton off the air

From Conservative Action Fund:

As "America's Toughest Sheriff," I've been pushing back against radical leftist, law enforcement-bashing demagogues for years.

Now we've got the perfect opportunity to give the boot to one of the worst, MSNBC's resident race-baiting loudmouth, Al Sharpton!

I'm thrilled to add my support to the Conservative Action Fund's campaign to get Al Sharpton FIRED from NBC -- will you join me?

His most recent anti-police rants have cost two NYPD officers their lives. In the wake of this tragedy, I'm joining with the Conservative Action Fund to call on NBC to fire Al Sharpton immediately, and I'm asking you to join them.

It's time to act now, before Sharpton's irresponsible ranting gets anyone else hurt -- or worse.

For decades, Sharpton has been making dangerous charges against the brave men and women who protect our neighborhoods and keep us safe.

From his tracksuit and gold chains street agitator days in the 1980s all the way up to inciting racial strife in New York City today, Sharpton's career has been one sensationalist shakedown after another. In fact, he's now going after the Oscars because he thinks they didn't nominate enough minorities!

Despite this, liberal media network NBC has employed Sharpton for years and given him a nationally televised soapbox for him to spread his irresponsible attacks... but enough is enough.

Al Sharpton MUST be fired -- and you can help make that happen!

Sign the Conservative Action Fund's Fire Al Sharpton petition demanding NBC get rid of Al Sharpton immediately.

Our goal is to put so much pressure on NBC and the sponsors of Sharpton's MSNBC TV show that they have no choice but to cut ties with this thug.

Getting Sharpton off the air would get his bluster off the air -- and send a message that America doesn't need his brand of "activism" anymore.

Join the Conservative Action Fund in demanding NBC fire Al Sharpton today.

I've seen firsthand how this thug operates and just exactly what he's capable of.

A few years ago, I met with Sharpton in my office in a good faith effort to iron out some of our differences and to share with him my perspective from a law enforcement point of view on enforcing existing illegal immigration laws.

And what was the result of this meeting? Sharpton led a protest march of thousands of radical activists through downtown Phoenix to the front of my office demanding my removal from office.

More recently, I publically challenged Sharpton to undergo the police training our officers receive for the real-life incidents they face every day, but Sharpton has refused to take me up on my offer.

It's clear Sharpton has no interest in productive dialogue; only the continuing pattern of radical activism that feeds his left wing agenda.

Al Sharpton can ignore me if he wants, but he can't ignore his enablers at NBC.

Thousands of patriotic Americans have already heeded our call -- but we're still short of our goal of 50,000 signatures. Won't you stand with us now to see this critical target met?

You can make the difference it will take to get Al Sharpton off TV.

Your donation will help gather more signatures and spread this petition far and wide. A $10 contribution can help us generate 225 more petitions to fire Al Sharpton. A $25 contribution can help us deliver 625 more fire Al Sharpton petitions. And a generous gift of $50 can deliver a forceful bundle of 1,225 petitions.

Will you sign your petition and make an urgent gift to get Al Sharpton fired immediately?

Had enough of Al Sharpton espousing his anti-law enforcement message from his shiny studio soapbox? Me too -- so let’s help NBC show Al Sharpton the door -- sign our petition today!

Sincerely,
Joe Arpaio
Sheriff, Maricopa County, AZ

P.S. It's time to let the bigwigs at NBC know we're done with Al Sharpton's hateful rants being aired nationwide. Help them see the light -- join the Conservative Action Fund's push to get Al Sharpton off TV. Click here to sign the petition demanding NBC fire Al Sharpton. Thanks, Sheriff Joe Arpaio

What do you want Congress to do?

From RandPAC:

The 114th Congress has convened.

And for the first time in eight years, Harry Reid no longer calls the shots in the U.S. Senate.

The American people elected Republicans to chart a new course and restore the time-tested principles of liberty and limited government in America.

And I'm going to answer the call.

On day one, I will fight to BLOCK Barack Obama's Executive Amnesty. I'll fight to REPEAL ObamaCare 100% -- every last word of it.

And I'll fight to rein in the NSA, Audit the Fed, protect worker freedom and restore the limited government principles you and I hold dear.

But if I'm going to hit the ground running I need to know you're with me every step of the way.

That's why I'm counting on you to stand with me in this fight by adding your name as a "Citizen Co-Sponsor" to the major offensive charges I'm going to lead in the new Congress.

You see, I've been called the Democrats' NUMBER ONE enemy by the press.

And there's good reason for that.

The voters soundly rejected Barack Obama and his liberal polices at the ballot box, proving the American people are insisting on a return to Constitutional principles.

The press and political pundits know our movement standing for principle is our best chance to WIN in 2016.

And they know that's exactly what I'll do.

There's nothing -- no election result or partisan bickering in Washington -- that can shake me from these principles and values.

And with you by my side as a Citizen Co-Sponsor, I plan to earn the title of being the Democrats' #1 enemy by leading a major offensive in the new Congress to:

>>>BLOCK Executive Amnesty.

President Obama's unconstitutional power grab violates the separation of powers established by our founding document.

The Constitution is clear that legislative power resides in Congress.

The President is not a king.

You and I must STOP Barack Obama's "Executive Amnesty" dead in its tracks by passing my legislation designed to block President Obama's unconstitutional "Executive Amnesty."

>>>REPEAL ObamaCare 100%.

As a practicing ophthalmologist for 17 years -- specializing in cataract and glaucoma surgeries, LASIK procedures and corneal transplants -- the ObamaCare issue angers me like few others.

The millions of Americans who were stripped of their health insurance or choice of doctors did not kick Democrats out of office to chip around the edges of ObamaCare.

I'm ready to lead the fight to repeal every word of ObamaCare.

>>>END Illegal NSA Domestic Spying.

Last year, we learned President Obama's NSA was collecting billions of emails and phone calls from law-abiding American citizens literally every day.

Our Fourth Amendment is on the brink of total destruction.

And I truly fear where the United States could be headed unless you and I put an end to government's out-of-control spying on American citizens.

In the new Congress I'll fight to pass my Fourth Amendment Protection Act, which would stop arbitrary data collection on American citizens without a warrant.

And I'll continue fighting a class-action lawsuit, which I hope will result in an end to this madness.

>>>AUDIT the FED.

The Federal Reserve's endless cycle of "print-now-ask-questions-later" drove the economy into a ditch preventing any chance of real recovery.

The Fed's policies hurt the poor and middle class the most by boosting the costs of goods and services.

Yet to this day the Federal Reserve is one of the most secretive institutions in our nation.

For two years in a row, Audit the Fed passed the U.S. House with overwhelming BIPARTISAN support. But Harry Reid flat-out refused to allow a vote in the Senate.

Now that voters have fired Harry Reid and elected Republicans to lead, it's high time to crack open the Fed's books and catalogue the damage done to our economy by passing Audit the Fed.

>>>END Forced Unionism.

For nearly 70 years -- with our federal government's blessing -- Big Labor bosses have mocked our Constitution and strangled our economy as they've built a massive political empire on the backs of hardworking Americans.

These workers' FORCED union dues -- confiscated by union bosses under the threat of outright job termination -- have bankrolled tax-and-spend politicians like Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid for decades.

Big Labor's billions are at the root of every Big Government attack on our liberty.

Every American who has any interest in Freedom has a stake in the fight over a National Right to Work Act.

I'll fight to pass my National Right to Work Act and END forced union dues in America once and for all.

Of course, these aren't fights that will be won overnight.

But they're fights you and I MUST fight -- starting right NOW!

Will you stand and fight with me by adding your name as a "Citizen Co-Sponsor?"

It's critical you do so right away.

When I go toe-to-toe with the President and powerful special interest lobbies, having YOU -- along with tens of thousands of other Citizen Co-Sponsors by my side -- will be a constant reminder to my colleagues of the message voters sent this past November.

So today I'm counting on you to sign on as a "Citizen Co-Sponsor" to the offensive battles I plan to wage in the new Congress.

And after you've added your name as a Citizen Co-Sponsor, if you could chip in a contribution, I'd really appreciate it.

Your generous contribution will help RANDPAC contact tens of thousands more of freedom-loving Americans and ask them to add their names as Citizen Co-Sponsors in this fight.

But most importantly please stand with me by adding your name as a "Citizen Co-Sponsor."

Thank you for all you do.

In Liberty,

Senator Rand Paul

P.S. The American people elected Republicans to chart a new course and restore the time-tested principles of liberty and limited government in America.

And I'm going to answer the call.

But if I'm going to hit the ground running on Tuesday I need you with me every step of the way.

That's why I'm counting on you to stand with me in this fight by adding your name as a "Citizen Co-Sponsor" to the major offensive charges I'm going to lead in the new Congress.

Bill Gates wants to depopulate the world

Fill out the 2015 membership ballot

From Public Advocate:

I’ve never faced such a difficult decision...

I desperately need your advice.

After the pro-Family wave swept away Democrat control of the Senate, the Homosexual Lobby ramped up their attacks on every front, and your Public Advocate is worn to the bone.

Please don't brush this email aside.

During the holidays last month, I could barely take time away to spend with my family.

The Homosexual Lobby attacked relentlessly.

They knew Congress’ lame duck session was their last chance to ram the Gay Bill of Special Rights through Congress.

So I rallied Public Advocate’s supporters and blocked it from reaching Barack Obama’s desk.

But it cost me significant treasure to fight this battle.

Now, the Homosexual Lobby is digging in to entrench their anti-Family policies against the new Republican majorities.

Their scheme is to protect every policy victory handed to them and blunt Republican opposition to their radical agenda.

Now I’m forced to make a decision. I need your help.

I have linked to Public Advocate's 2015 Supporters Poll below.

I hope you will complete it and let me know which fights are most important to you.

Over the last 6 years, the Homosexual Lobby has used Congress to reshape this nation by:

1) Rubber-stamping Obama’s radical judicial nominees.

President Obama took office and packed the courts with hyper-liberal jurists who advance the Homosexual Agenda at every turn.

2) Obliterating the rights of individual states to protect Real Marriage.

The Homosexual Lobby has used radical judges to push the number of states codifying so-called “homosexual marriage” to a record high of 36.

3) Destroying the Religious Liberties of pro-Family Americans.

Through executive fiat, so-called “civil rights commissions,” and costly lawsuits, the Homosexual Lobby undermined the First Amendment religious freedoms of Americans who oppose their radical agenda.

Now, the new Republican majorities have the opportunity to roll back these grave threats to morality and the Family.

I just don’t know if I can marshal enough pro-Family support to win all of these important battles.

That’s why your advice is so critical.

Which do you consider the biggest threat?

Please click here to fill out the Supporters Poll with your advice right now.

And along with your official decision, please chip in with an emergency contribution of $10 or $20 today to fund Public Advocate's fight.

You see, without your support, I’m not sure I will have the resources to fight on every front.

But if enough supporters like you tell me to prioritize between these fights, I can move on knowing I’m doing the right thing.

If the Homosexual Lobby succeeds in reshaping America in their image, the values you and I hold dear will be lost forever.

The ultimate goal of every radical homosexual activist is to create a new America where sexual promiscuity is the new norm, and Traditional Values are long forgotten.

You and I can’t let them succeed.

I’ve prepared a massive grassroots lobbying campaign to undo the last six years of anti-Family policy from Washington.

The plans are all there ready to go... But so are the costs.

Executing just one of these plans will take tens, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars.

I’ve currently budgeted around $33,920 for each fight.

But that’s not nearly enough...

Are you a business owner who refuses to submit to the threat of lawsuits, fines, or even incarceration?

Or are you a parent or grandparent who desperately wants to protect the innocence of the next generation by defending our right to vocally oppose the Homosexual Agenda?

Or are you passionate about preserving the sanctity of Real Marriage by restoring traditional marriage laws?

Please click here right now to give me your personal advice on this fight by completing the Supporters Poll.

Along with your advice, will you help me raise what Public Advocate needs to win by chipping in with a $10 or $20 gift right away?

Harry Reid is no longer running the show in the Senate, but the most dangerous years of Obama’s presidency are yet to come!

In order to roll back Barack Obama’s anti-Family policies, I need you to make a generous contribution right away.

Please don’t set this letter aside.

If you’re like me, you want to see the new Republican majority in Congress fighting AND ROLLING BACK every single one of the Homosexual Lobby’s victories from the last six years!

But Republican leadership is already under tremendous pressure -- even within their own ranks -- to push the Homosexual Agenda.

This means undoing the Homosexual Lobby’s policies will cost precious resources.

And I just barely met my end-of-year fundraising goals.

In fact, if I’m to undo even one of the Homosexual Lobby’s victories, I’m going to need an immediate influx of funds.

Their attacks have been relentless for the last six years and beyond.

That’s why, along with your advice, I urgently need you to chip in an emergency gift of $20.

I’ve calculated that winning these battles will require you and other supporters to chip in $10 or $20 each.

I am terrified of letting even a single one of these anti-Family policies remain on the books any longer...

I’m hoping you say to fight them all!

Can I count on you to give today to help Public Advocate marshal Republican resistance to the radical Homosexual Agenda?

If $20 is just too much, please chip in at least $10 along with your Supporter’s Poll.

Please don’t delay. We don’t have much time.

Thank you in advance.

For the Family,

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

P.S. I desperately need your advice.

You see, the new Republican majority has the chance to roll back much of the radical Homosexual Agenda, but I must know where my supporters want me to focus my efforts.

Please rush your 2015 Supporter’s Poll back to me right away to let me know what you think Public Advocate should fight.

And please chip in $10 or $20 to fund our fight.

Tell the Supreme Court to uphold state's rights

I have an important update from the frontlines of the battle to defend Real Marriage.

The Supreme Court announced last Friday they will hear an appeal of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that upheld the rights of Michigan, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ohio to define marriage.

Arguments are expected to be heard and a ruling announced by the end of the court's session in June.

There's no way to sugarcoat this.

If the Supreme Court overturns the 6th Circuit's ruling, "homosexual marriage" will be the law of the land in all 50 states.

It's going to be an uphill battle.

And I'm counting on your support for Public Advocate as I spearhead our efforts to restore Real Marriage in America.

The 9 justices who will be hearing this case are the very same justices who twice before undermined the legal foundation of Real Marriage, starting with the June, 2013 ruling that gutted the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

Pro-Family Americans are also fighting against the likes of Attorney General Eric Holder, who has announced he will file an amicus brief advocating for the 6th Circuit's ruling to be overturned.

But there is a reason for hope.

If the Supreme Court upholds the 6th Circuit's ruling, the 33 states that have been forced to comply with the Homosexual Lobby's redefinition of marriage by judicial fiat will have legal grounds to restore their laws defending Real Marriage.

To say this is a watershed moment wouldn't do it justice.

That's why my staff and I are already working on Public Advocate's own amicus brief to file with the Supreme Court to halt the redefinition of marriage by judicial fiat.

But Public Advocate's efforts don't stop there.

I'm counting on your support to pass the State Marriage Defense Act so pro-Family Americans can take charge in this fight on every front.

As always, I'll keep you updated on this important court battle.

And I'm counting on your quick response when I must mobilize Public Advocate's nationwide grassroots army.

For the Family,

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

P.S. If you haven't become a citizen cosponsor of the State Marriage Defense Act, please click here to sign your pledge right away.

And once you've signed, please chip in $10 or $20 to help defray the legal costs and staff expenses of filing our Supreme Court amicus brief and fighting the radical Homosexual Lobby.

Tell Senator Wyden not to cave on TPP

Dear Fight for the Future member,

Urgent action needed to stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership censorship deal!

It’s Saturday. I wish I wasn’t working today, but something urgent has come up and we need to ask you to take action. TODAY.

Oregon Senator Ron Wyden has long been a champion of Internet freedom causes, but now he’s saying he wants to negotiate with Republicans to make sure that Fast Track legislation passes, which would then hastily ram through the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, a massive trade deal that we know contains extreme provisions that could lead to widespread Internet censorship.

Senator Wyden needs to hear from you right now. Click here to tell him to be a hero to the Internet, not a traitor!

The Senator is hosting a town hall meeting tonight, and he’ll most certainly be talking about trade issues and the Trans-Pacific Partnership. We need to make sure he feels the heat all day today. Let’s remind him who’s side he’s on: the Internet’s!

Thanks, have a great weekend,
-Evan from Fight for the Future

P.S. Senator Wyden is especially sensitive to what he sees on Twitter. Will you retweet this tweet? That would be a big help. Thanks!

Protect the net stand up to big cable

Fight For The Future:

So today we did something a little absurd. We launched 535 websites. One for each member of Congress.

Why? The battle over net neutrality in the U.S. is coming to a final showdown, and the outcome will affect every Internet user in the world. One year ago today, Verizon’s lawyers got our net neutrality protections struck down in court.

Since then, we’ve unleashed an Internet-sized can of whoop-ass on the FCC, the White House, fence-sitting tech giants, Team Cable lobbyists, and anyone else standing in the way of keeping the Internet open and unfettered by corporate and government interference.

The online free speech movement has gained so much ground that Comcast and Verizon are now begging the FCC to implement the rules that just a year ago today they sued to strike down.

We’re winning. We we're winning so hard. There’s literally only one thing that can stop us now: partisan nonsense in Congress.

I know what you’re thinking: partisan nonsense in Congress can ruin ANYTHING. You’re right. That’s why we’re pulling out the stops on this one. We made every member of Congress their very own website showing where they stand on net neutrality. Are they with the public or in bed with corporate monopolies that want to regulate the Internet?

Congress knows that the public is overwhelmingly in support of net neutrality. We need to let them know that there will be political consequences for any politician who betrays the open Internet. These sites are just the first part of the plan, but they’re exactly the kind of attention politicians don’t like. It’s like if we put up giant billboards with their faces on them, except it only costs a couple bucks per site :-)

Congress has been scared of the Internet ever since SOPA. Let’s keep it that way.

Yours for the web,

Get Al Sharpton fired from MSNBC

From The Conservative Action Fund:

Al Sharpton must be fired!

Will you join the Conservative Action Fund's campaign to get Al Sharpton FIRED from NBC?

There are a myriad of reasons why Al Sharpton should be fired:

***Al Sharpton is the #1 race-baiting racist in America - stoking violence and hatred towards police, conservatives, freedom and our Constitution.
***Sharpton shakes down corporations with extortion tactics: relent to Al's demands or he will call for a boycott that costs real workers their jobs.
***Sharpton and his "company" owe over $4.5 million dollars in back taxes!

If those weren't enough reasons, Sharpton's latest antics are the icing on the cake. His recent anti-police rants have cost two NYPD officers their lives. In the wake of this tragedy, the Conservative Action Fund is calling on NBC to fire Al Sharpton immediately. I know you agree, Al Sharpton and his race-baiting demagoguery MUST be stopped - Al Sharpton MUST be fired.

Sign the Conservative Action Fund's Fire Al Sharpton petition demanding NBC get rid of Al Sharpton immediately.

If NBC refuses to fire Al Sharpton, then we will call on every liberty loving American to boycott all of the sponsors of Sharpton's show.

Our goal is to put so much pressure on NBC and the sponsors of Sharpton's TV show that they have no choice but to cut ties with this thug.

With all of his public antics, it's hard to imagine Sharpton currying any favor in serious political circles, but Sharpton's influence extends all the way to the Oval Office. Sharpton has made over 80 visits to the White House during Obama's presidency.

Recently, one of the biggest liberal blogs named Sharpton the "most powerful man in America".

And what is the root of Sharpton's "power"??? His nightly show on MSNBC. Each night, Sharpton has a bully pulpit from which he can espouse his hateful, race-baiting rhetoric and carry out the threats aimed at extorting honest businesses!

Getting Sharpton kicked off TV would be a devastating blow to Sharpton and his race-baiting cronies. Furthermore, his dismissal would send the message that his style of race-dividing politicking has no place in America.

Join the Conservative Action Fund in demanding NBC fire Al Sharpton today.

Once we've reached 50,000 signatures, we will deliver the petitions to NBC to show them just how strong the opposition to Sharpton is across the nation.

And if NBC ignores our calls, then we will speak with our wallets through the boycott of the sponsors of Sharpton's show. Once enough sponsors pull their support for Sharpton, NBC will have no choice but to send Sharpton packing.

Let's start 2015 with a victory by getting Al Sharpton off TV.

Your donation will help gather more signatures and spread this petition far and wide. A $10 contribution can help us generate 225 more petitions to fire Al Sharpton. A $25 contribution can help us deliver 625 more fire Al Sharpton petitions. And a generous gift of $50 can deliver a forceful bundle of 1,225 petitions.

The bottom line... Al Sharpton represents EVERYTHING that is wrong with the race-baiting liberal left, and WE MUST STOP HIM before it is too late.

Sincerely,
Dan Backer
Treasurer, Conservative Action Fund

P.S. Al Sharpton is the leader of the race-baiting liberal left, and his nightly television show gives him a bully pulpit to spew his hateful rhetoric. Don't forget, his words espoused on his TV show sparked the anti-police movement in New York City and across the country. His hateful rhetoric and hypocritical tax evasion show it's time for Al Sharpton to be kicked off TV.

Join the Conservative Action Fund's push to get Al Sharpton off TV. Click here to sign the petition demanding NBC fire Al Sharpton.

Kim Cube wants to upgrade his military planes

North Korea Wants To Buy Russia's Super Advanced Su-35 Fighter Jet

Zachary Keck
January 9, 2015

North Korea’s Kim Jong-un sent a special envoy to Moscow to ask Russia to sell him its most advanced fighter jets, South Korean and Russian media are reporting.

On Thursday, a senior South Korean military official told JoongAng Ilbo, a conservative South Korean daily newspaper, that North Korea officially asked Russia to sell it the Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jet. Notably, the Russian state-owned ITAR-TASS news agency picked up the JoongAng Ilbo report on its website on Friday.

According to the original report, the request was made in November when Choe Ryong-hae, North Korea’s number two, traveled to Russia as Kim Jong-un’s special envoy. During the trip, Choe met with Vladimir Putin and gave the Russian president a letter from Kim.

“Choe Ryong-hae, who visited Moscow as a special envoy of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in November last year, asked Russian President Vladimir Putin to provide Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jets,” JoongAng Ilbo quoted the military source as saying. The source added that he didn’t believe Russia would consent to the sale because of international sanctions against North Korea.

As Dave Majumdar wrote in The National Interest last month, the Su-35 “is the most potent fighter currently in operation with the Russian Air Force. The powerful twin-engine fighter, which is an advanced derivative of the original Soviet-era Su-27, is high flying, fast and carries an enormous payload. That, combined with its advanced suite of avionics, makes the Su-35 an extremely dangerous foe to any U.S. fighter, with the exception of the stealthy Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor.”

The 4++ generation fighter jet would be a substantial upgrade over the North Korean Air Force’s current arsenal, which mostly consists of outdated Chinese and Russian platforms like the MiG-21 and Su-25. North Korea purchased these aircraft from Russia in the waning days of the Soviet Union.

North Korea has long sought more modernized aircraft to compete with the South Korean and American fleets. However, as the military source told JoongAng Ilbo, “The North produces many weapons systems domestically, but it appears to have sought Russia’s help because building fighter jets requires more complex technologies.”

It’s not the first time that North Korea has gone abroad in search of more modernized fighters. Kim Jong-un’s father and predecessor, Kim Jong-Il, asked Russia to sell it advanced fighter aircraft during summits in 2001 and 2002. Kim Jong-Il returned to Moscow in 2011 to again ask Russia to sell it fighter jets. That same year, the former North Korean leader also traveled to Beijing to ask then-Chinese President Hu Jintao to sell North Korea J-10 and J-11 stealth fighters. Hu rejected the request.

Even if Russia won’t sell Pyongyang the Su-35, Moscow has shown an interest in strengthening ties to the Hermit Kingdom in recent months. Last month, a Kremlin spokesperson announced that Putin has invited Kim Jong-un to Moscow in May of this year to celebrate the 70 anniversary of Nazi Germany’s defeat. If Kim accepts the invitation, it would be his first trip abroad since taking over power in North Korea following his father’s death in late 2011.

I think the Russians are going to go for it. Putin is not a big Obama fan unlike the American left and I'm sure he would like to embarass Obama once more. When the sale goes down and Kim Cube gets the planes he is after the US and South Korea will have a lot to worry about.

Title X will take away your internet freedoms

From Fight For The Future:

Dear Fight for the Future member,

The FCC basically just said they're going to vote to pass real net neutrality, but Congress wants to pass a law to stop them and give Comcast everything it wants.

Breaking news: last night at the CES Conference in Las Vegas, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler "all but confirmed" that he is caving in to our massive public pressure campaign and moving to a vote on real Title II net neutrality on February 26th.

This is the one we’ve been waiting for. Literally NO ONE thought this was possible. Now, we’ve got less than two months before the decision.

Just when we have victory in sight, Congress is trying to pass a shady law called “Title X” that would undermine all the amazing work we’ve done. Basically it would pre-empt the FCC’s rule and prevent us from getting real net neutrality. Instead, we’d have a weak law in Congress that leaves the door wide open for monopolies like Comcast to abuse their power.

We need to act fast to show Congress that we see through the lies. We know they’re taking huge campaign contributions from companies like Comcast and we won’t be fooled.

Your signature is needed! Click here to sign our urgent petition to Congress demanding they drop “Title X” keep the Internet free and open.

There’s such overwhelming public support for the free and open Internet it shouldn’t be hard to defeat this, but we need to move fast. Please sign and share the petition widely.

Good news about Net Neutrality

From Demand Progress:

FCC Chairman Wheeler finally – FINALLY – seems to get it! In a speech yesterday, he all but confirmed that the FCC is prepared to vote on rules strong enough to protect Net Neutrality. We don't have the details yet, but it looks like the FCC has heard the millions of people asking them to do the right thing.

Speaking at the Consumer Electronics Conference, Chairman Wheeler yesterday said that the agency has been investigating how to defend the Open Internet and that Title II has the “best protections.” The rules won't be circulated until February 5th (and voted on February 26th), but his comments all but confirmed that they will reclassify the Internet under Title II of the Telecommunications Act.

I don't want to get too excited yet. As they say, the devil (The Comcast?) is in the details, and we're up against some of the most powerful forces in business and politics. But this is great news.

They said we'd never get this far. They said the ISPs were too big to fight. They said the FCC was captured by industry. But together we keep winning -- every step of the way so far.

And we're a huge part of why: Demand Progress and our members have spurred more than 1 million FCC comments, along with millions of emails and hundreds of thousands of phone calls to Congress, the White House, and the FCC.

If you keep participating in the process we will win. But we also need financial support to keep pushing back against the ISPs, because they won't relent.

They have millions of dollars. We have you. Can you contribute $20 to help us keep up the pressure?

Thanks.

Don't let the rainbow mafia regain control

From Public Advocate:

I’ve just come from a meeting with top Washington leaders, and I had to contact you right away.

Many conservative leaders are worried about the Republican leadership’s ability to resist the Homosexual Lobby.

Even after pro-Family voters worked so hard to break the Homosexual Lobby’s stranglehold on Congress.

GOP leadership is under tremendous insider pressure to throw conservatives under the bus and continue confirming anti-Family judicial nominees and abandoning Real Marriage.

But I am resolved to rally pro-Family resistance against the radical Homosexual Agenda on Capitol Hill.

Right now, radical homosexual activists are executing a full-scale covert operation designed to regain their grip on Washington, D.C.

And while my warnings regarding the Homosexual Lobby’s unquenchable thirst for power have been proven right, the news media focuses their attacks on me instead.

Even the Weather Channel has attacked Public Advocate.

Only you and I can shine a spotlight on their dastardly plans, but I need your help today to succeed.

Will you chip in $10 or $20 to fund the mail, telephone operations, and internet campaigns needed to expose their covert operation?

I first reported on this scheme when I told you of prominent conservatives abandoning the Family, but now we all have confirmation.

The leaders of the radical homosexual movement are not stupid.

They are cold, calculating professionals and they aren’t going to let a change in party stop their assault on the Family.

You’ve seen it happen: Homosexual Lobby front groups popping up claiming to be “conservative.”

Pro-homosexual political lobbying organizations like the Log Cabin Republicans and GOProud are trying to pass themselves off as part of our movement.

Some even claim to represent the Tea Party. They whisper stories in our ears about “sacrificing our morality” to focus solely on fiscal matters.

Even so-called “conservative” leaders like Ann Coulter and Grover Norquist are in favor of the Homosexual Agenda.

Norquist even served on the board of pro-Homosexual Agenda GOProud!

The Homosexual Lobby is truly pulling out all the stops to push every last bit of their perverse agenda.

You see, destroying pro-Family values within the Democrat Party isn’t enough for them.

They want total dominance in Washington and that means controlling BOTH parties -- left and right -- and silencing defenders of the Family and Real Marriage like you and me.

This has truly become a survival battle for Family Values.

If we don’t defeat this scheme, pro-Family momentum generated by November’s pro-Family midterm wave will be destroyed.

Will you chip in $10 or $20 to help Public Advocate expose the Homosexual Lobby's scheme?

As they infiltrate the right and drive social conservatives out of Washington, you see more and more corruption.

And more and more on the right are falling into the homosexual trap.

That’s why I need to ask you to help me right away.

You see, it took every dollar I raised to expose the radical Homosexual Lobby’s handpicked candidates before the 2014 midterms.

You and I came so close to losing it all.

I can’t bear the thought of failing now, especially after such encouraging results from the midterm elections in November.

The Homosexual Lobby still holds tremendous influence here in Washington.

And no one else will tell you how bad it is.

But if they succeed in driving social conservatives out of town once and for all, it will all be over.

And while Public Advocate is doing everything in our power to maintain the pro-Family momentum, the Homosexual Lobby is on the verge of convincing Republican leadership to sell out pro-Family voters.

I called in our emergency “reserve funds” to fight their schemes in last month’s lame duck session -- and we successfully held them back!

But now our coffers are dangerously low.

And if the Homosexual Lobby makes good on their newest threats, I don’t know if I’ll be able to go on.

You see, if this infiltration by pro-homosexual operatives succeeds, the Homosexual Lobby will have a grip on Washington’s throat.

And what will follow is a horror I can’t bear to imagine.

The Gay Bill of Special Rights, the Homosexual Classrooms Act, and the Offense of Marriage Act will all become the law of the land.

Their top priority is to outlaw religious opposition to their radical agenda and mandate homosexual “marriage” in every state and community in America.

And if radical homosexuals in the Republican Party continue to corrupt the party’s leaders, they will succeed.

Agents of the Homosexual Lobby have been strolling through the halls of Congress handing out campaign contributions like sweet candy in an attempt to win over weak-kneed Republicans.

Republicans like Senator John Cornyn of Texas attend fundraisers hosted by the Log Cabin Republicans, the oldest cell of homosexual “conservatives” in D.C.

They’ve been at this scheme for quite awhile, teaming up with groups like the “Republicans for Choice” and the “Republican Youth Majority.”

These infiltrators actively recruit pro-abortion activists and environmentalists into the Republican Party and disguise them as “conservatives.”

But John Cornyn isn’t the only so-called “conservative” target.

And if you and I don’t do something about it, more and more will fall by the wayside.

And if they succeed, the Homosexual Lobby will destroy America.

To kick it off, Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) will soon introduce a supercharged version of the Gay Bill of Special Rights, which will punish and even fine schools, daycares and churches who fail to meet mandatory “homosexual quotas.”

Expect Senator Cornyn, Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), and other compromised Republicans to go right along with it.

That is, unless you and I have something to say about it.

Help Public Advocate keep the new Republican majorities' feet to the fire.

They’ll try to ram through the Homosexual Classrooms Act which would implement a federally-mandated pro-homosexual public school curriculum.

Students would be taught that homosexuality is a morally acceptable lifestyle -- that when Christians teach about the sanctity of marriage and the sin of homosexuality, they are committing hate crimes and should be silenced.

If they pass this bill, they will be able to indoctrinate a new generation and all but wipe out Traditional Values in America.

We face all of this and more in the New Year.

When I first heard about the Homosexual Lobby’s secretive plan, I was outraged.

The Homosexual Lobby simply can’t get away with this in my country!

But right now, far too many decent Americans are still silent on these issues.

I’m convinced it’s because most don’t know the truth and are confused about what to do.

You, on the other hand, have always been there for the American Family and have helped me so many times over the years.

I need to be able to count on you once again.

Please chip in an emergency contribution of $10, $20 or as much as you can afford right away for 2015.

Your gift will help me reach out to hundreds of thousands of Americans just like you -- to mobilize a force that can stand up to whatever the Homosexual Lobby tries to force on us this year.

If they railroad any of these policies through before we can organize, we lose.

Our institutions, our children, and our way of life could be handed over to the perverted whims of the Homosexual Lobby.

I desperately need your immediate pledge of support.

In November, pro-Family voters made themselves heard and swept out eight Senators who sponsored and voted for the Gay Bill of Special Rights.

But the Homosexual Lobby’s operatives inside the Republican Party are still trying to convince them they must sell out Traditional Values to stay in power.

But with your support, Public Advocate will turn up the heat on these so-called “conservative” politicians using national mail programs, phone banks, and targeted internet campaigns.

Public Advocate is the only national organization willing to fight back and expose the agents of the Homosexual Lobby and their covert schemes.

Together, you and I can prove to Republican leadership that the Family is still strong in America.

That’s why I ask you -- I plead with you -- to send in your most generous gift right away.

I hope and pray you will rush an emergency contribution to your Public Advocate of $10 or $20.

I am counting on you. Together, you and I can win.

Please let me hear from you as soon as possible.

For the Family,

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

P.S. My sources tell me that the Homosexual Lobby is executing a full-scale covert operation designed to infiltrate and takeover the conservative movement.

We have to mobilize hundreds of thousands of pro-Family Americans this year -- before it’s too late.

Too many good folks don’t know what’s going on.

But you do. Will you help?

Please chip in $10 or $20 -- or even more if you can.

Believe me, I know that’s a lot to ask, but we can win if we stick with it.

Please help now. Thank you!

Tell the FEC to leave the internet alone

From the Tea Party:

Liberal allies of Barack Obama on the Federal Election Commission (FEC) are attempting to regulate political speech on and off the Internet, and to restrict our constitutionally protected freedoms. We have a short window of time to stop it!

Under current FEC guidelines (from a unanimous, 6-0 decision in 2006), political advertising or commentary posted on YouTube is exempt from campaign reporting requirements. Democrat FEC Vice Chair Ann Ravel apparently finds this unacceptable, and speaks unfavorably of “this effort to protect individual bloggers and online commentators.”

As if free speech is unworthy of protection!

If Ms. Ravel has her way, any video you post of your own political commentary will fall under the scrutiny of the federal government.

After six years of Obama Administration overreach and encroachment into our personal freedoms, none of us should be surprised. What’s important, though, is that we stop their latest assault on our Bill of Rights.

If you think outlets like YouTube and the broader Internet should be free from federal government control, you must join me in standing up and being heard–NOW.

But it isn't just YouTube that the FEC is going after. Obama's FEC is engaging in the same kind of political repression that we have seen over the past few years with the IRS targeting. The new proposed rules will limit individuals' rights to associate and to form political organizations. The broader implication of this FEC rule would be a total crackdown on non-profit organizations that exist to petition the government on a variety of issues.

We have the ability to tell FEC Chair Ann Ravel and her Obama Administration friends HANDS OFF the Internet and HANDS OFF our precious, Constitutionally protected freedom of speech. We must do this, and urge others to as well:

Make an official comment against any new government intrusion by clicking here before January 15. Note, you’ll need to leave your full name and postal address for your comment to count. It takes a few minutes, but believe me, it’s worth it. Speech-stifling power grabs such as this get shut down all the time, but only when WE SPEAK OUT AND REGISTER OUR COMMENTS.

Again submit your comment and then spread the word. The comment period ends January 15, so act now well before the deadline so that we can start putting points on the board right away!

Replace John Boehner with Trey Gowdy as Speaker of the House

From the Tea Party:

Do you agree with Sean Hannity's challenge to Trey Gowdy?

"...if Trey Gowdy is as uninspired and disappointed as many conservatives like myself are, he has an obligation as a public servant to say so, and more importantly for the sake of the country and the conservative movement to step up and fill this void."

Join the Tea Party Leadership Fund, 200,000 tea partiers, and Fox News' Sean Hannity and sign your Draft Trey Gowdy for Speaker Petition today.

Sign by clicking here immediately, and once you've signed, donate $5 or more and make sure we get this petition in front of another 10,000 Americans.

**The House leadership elections are tomorrow**, and without the signature of every last tea partier and true conservative, I'm not sure Trey Gowdy will listen.

We need a true conservative as Speaker of the House. We need Trey Gowdy. This is the last resort to stop the liberal destruction of our country -- replace John Boehner. After throwing in with Barack Obama, John Boehner's latest round of betrayals has made it clear -- Boehner has to go.

Let me explain: in the last month, Boehner has single handedly betrayed us and squandered the election results before a new Congressional majority could be sworn into office.

After securing 15 more seats in Congress in November's mid-term elections just weeks ago -- the biggest GOP House majority in over 80 years -- we need a strong leader who's fired up and eager to take on Barack Obama and his arrogant Imperial Presidency!

Instead we have John Boehner, who is giving in to the whole Obama agenda -- amnesty, Obamacare, and a fully funded government. It's all a done deal.

The American people are desperately looking for leadership to reverse the disastrous course Barack Obama and the Democrats have plunged our country down.

We need Speaker of the House Trey Gowdy.

Follow this link to sign on the dotted line and Draft Congressman Trey Gowdy to serve as the next Speaker of the House AND BRING TRUE CONSERVATIVE LEADERSHIP TO CONGRESS.

In the past two-and-a-half months, more than 200,000 patriotic Americans have already signed on to call for a conservative leader the House of Representatives -- a last line of defense against Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid.

Will you join the call and sign the petition to draft Trey Gowdy to be the next Speaker of the House -- replacing John Boehner who has too often compromised and capitulated to Barack Obama?

America needs a strong leader like Congressman Trey Gowdy who's proven he will stand up to Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid -- and even liberals in his own party when necessary.

The response has been overwhelmingly in favor of drafting Congressman Trey Gowdy for Speaker of the House, BUT I'm worried we might miss our window of opportunity if we don't get your signature in right away! Will you CLICK HERE to join the call to draft Trey Gowdy to be the next Speaker of the House?

Gowdy is listening, but he's not convinced yet.

Congressmen Gowdy is well known for standing strong on principle, despite the mainstream media or public opinion -- these qualities will make him an excellent Speaker of the House and would return the House GOP to a strong position.

It's critical we not only elect strong conservatives to congress, but we must also replace weak leaders like John Boehner.

Our Plan:

1.Gather five-hundred-thousand more signatures to show Gowdy we're serious.

2.Deliver a copy of the signatures and the Official Draft Gowdy Petition to every GOP Congressman's office on Capitol Hill.

3.Notify the media of the official tally to show the ground swell of support we've uncovered for Congressman Trey Gowdy to replace Boehner as Speaker of the House.

Gowdy won't back down on Benghazi. AND I'm willing to say he wouldn't have compromised and capitulated to Barack Obama like John Boehner JUST DID AGAIN!

And that's why I'm asking you to sign your Draft Trey Gowdy for Speaker Petition today by clicking here immediately. Once you've signed, donate $5 or more and make sure we get this petition in front of another 10,000 Americans.

Let me remind you what we could have accomplished under Gowdy's leadership:

- We could have STOPPED the pork-filled House bill to fund the government,

- We could have repealed and defunded Obamacare,

- We could have said no to the massive debt increase in the latest tax-and-spend liberal budget,

- We could have protected disabled veterans' pensions AND CUT CONGRESS INSTEAD; and

- We wouldn't be on the verge of a massive new Amnesty bill.

That's why it is so important that we raise up 1 million Americans who will sign their name on the dotted line to draft Trey Gowdy as Speaker of the House.

And that's why I'm asking you to sign your Draft Trey Gowdy for Speaker Petition today by clicking here immediately.

Frankly, it doesn't do Americans any good when Republicans appease Barack Obama -- and that is exactly what is happing today with John Boehner as our speaker. Whether its raising the debt ceiling, selling out our veterans (Gowdy is a veteran), pushing Amnesty, or caving in on fully funding Obamacare -- our GOP leaders have failed us.

That's why with your signed petition today, we will start a grassroots movement to make Trey Gowdy the next Speaker of the House. We can't let the establishment keep putting up their cronies year in and year out to block true Conservative ideas that would shrink government and their power.

Will you sign your name today?

If you support having a strong, conservative leadership team in the US Congress -- led by a no-nonsense, conservative prosecutor and military man -- I'm asking you to do two things immediately:

1)Please -- right now before you do anything else -- click here to sign your Draft Trey Gowdy for Speaker Petition. I need you if we are going to reach our goal of 1 million signatures.

2)After you sign, please make a generous donation to help us reach our goal. Even $5 will help us distribute this petition to thousands more patriotic Americans. Of course, if you can afford $35 or even $75 that will be so much more helpful.

No matter what you are able to give, please sign your Draft Trey Gowdy Petition Right away.

No matter what you are able to give, please sign your Draft Trey Gowdy Petition Right away. The truth is -- the final vote for GOP leadership elections is just around the corner. And if the American people are going to have a conservative voice in Congress to lead the GOP -- I must have your support today.

Sincerely,

Rusty Humphries

PS. I need your immediate help. GOP leadership elections are about to be underway in the House of Representatives.

Will you join the call to draft Trey Gowdy to be the next Speaker of the House -- replacing John Boehner, who has too often compromised and capitulated to with Barack Obama?

Stand by Rand Paul has he takes on the new Senate

From RandPac:

The 114th Congress convenes Tuesday.

And for the first time in eight years, Harry Reid no longer calls the shots in the U.S. Senate.

The American people elected Republicans to chart a new course and restore the time-tested principles of liberty and limited government in America.

And I'm going to answer the call.

On day one, I will fight to BLOCK Barack Obama's Executive Amnesty. I'll fight to REPEAL ObamaCare 100% -- every last word of it.

And I'll fight to rein in the NSA, Audit the Fed, protect worker freedom and restore the limited government principles you and I hold dear.

But if I'm going to hit the ground running on Tuesday I need to know you're with me every step of the way.

That's why I'm counting on you to stand with me in this fight by adding your name as a "Citizen Co-Sponsor" to the major offensive charges I'm going to lead in the new Congress.

You see, I've been called the Democrats' NUMBER ONE enemy by the press.

And there's good reason for that.

The voters soundly rejected Barack Obama and his liberal polices at the ballot box, proving the American people are insisting on a return to Constitutional principles.

The press and political pundits know our movement standing for principle is our best chance to WIN in 2016.

And they know that's exactly what I'll do.

There's nothing -- no election result or partisan bickering in Washington -- that can shake me from these principles and values.

And with you by my side as a Citizen Co-Sponsor, I plan to earn the title of being the Democrats' #1 enemy by leading a major offensive in the new Congress to:

>>>BLOCK Executive Amnesty.

President Obama's unconstitutional power grab violates the separation of powers established by our founding document.

The Constitution is clear that legislative power resides in Congress.

The President is not a king.

You and I must STOP Barack Obama's "Executive Amnesty" dead in its tracks by passing my legislation designed to block President Obama's unconstitutional "Executive Amnesty."

>>>REPEAL ObamaCare 100%.

As a practicing ophthalmologist for 17 years -- specializing in cataract and glaucoma surgeries, LASIK procedures and corneal transplants -- the ObamaCare issue angers me like few others.

The millions of Americans who were stripped of their health insurance or choice of doctors did not kick Democrats out of office to chip around the edges of ObamaCare.

I'm ready to lead the fight to repeal every word of ObamaCare.

>>>END Illegal NSA Domestic Spying.

Last year, we learned President Obama's NSA was collecting billions of emails and phone calls from law-abiding American citizens literally every day.

Our Fourth Amendment is on the brink of total destruction.

And I truly fear where the United States could be headed unless you and I put an end to government's out-of-control spying on American citizens.

In the new Congress I'll fight to pass my Fourth Amendment Protection Act, which would stop arbitrary data collection on American citizens without a warrant.

And I'll continue fighting a class-action lawsuit, which I hope will result in an end to this madness.

>>>AUDIT the FED.

The Federal Reserve's endless cycle of "print-now-ask-questions-later" drove the economy into a ditch preventing any chance of real recovery.

The Fed's policies hurt the poor and middle class the most by boosting the costs of goods and services.

Yet to this day the Federal Reserve is one of the most secretive institutions in our nation.

For two years in a row, Audit the Fed passed the U.S. House with overwhelming BIPARTISAN support. But Harry Reid flat-out refused to allow a vote in the Senate.

Now that voters have fired Harry Reid and elected Republicans to lead, it’s high time to crack open the Fed’s books and catalogue the damage done to our economy by passing Audit the Fed.

>>>END Forced Unionism.

For nearly 70 years -- with our federal government's blessing -- Big Labor bosses have mocked our Constitution and strangled our economy as they've built a massive political empire on the backs of hardworking Americans.

These workers' FORCED union dues -- confiscated by union bosses under the threat of outright job termination -- have bankrolled tax-and-spend politicians like Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid for decades.

Big Labor's billions are at the root of every Big Government attack on our liberty.

Every American who has any interest in Freedom has a stake in the fight over a National Right to Work Act.

I'll fight to pass my National Right to Work Act and END forced union dues in America once and for all.

Of course, these aren't fights that will be won overnight.

But they're fights you and I MUST fight -- starting right NOW!

Will you stand and fight with me by adding your name as a "Citizen Co-Sponsor?"

It's critical you do so right away.

When I go toe-to-toe with the President and powerful special interest lobbies, having YOU -- along with tens of thousands of other Citizen Co-Sponsors by my side -- will be a constant reminder to my colleagues of the message voters sent this past November.

So today I'm counting on you to sign on as a "Citizen Co-Sponsor" to the offensive battles I plan to wage in the new Congress.

And after you've added your name as a Citizen Co-Sponsor, if you could chip in a contribution, I'd really appreciate it.

Your generous contribution will help RANDPAC contact tens of thousands more of freedom-loving Americans and ask them to add their names as Citizen Co-Sponsors in this fight.

But most importantly please stand with me by adding your name as a "Citizen Co-Sponsor."

Thank you for all you do.

In Liberty,

Senator Rand Paul

P.S. The American people elected Republicans to chart a new course and restore the time-tested principles of liberty and limited government in America.

And I'm going to answer the call.

But if I'm going to hit the ground running on Tuesday I need you with me every step of the way.

That's why I'm counting on you to stand with me in this fight by adding your name as a "Citizen Co-Sponsor" to the major offensive charges I'm going to lead in the new Congress.

The War on the People

I've been watching FOX News and I've been listening to the Rush Limbaugh show where the guest host Buck Sexton is a former cop so he's their biggest cheerleader. But he's really more than that: he is a total propagandist. Both Sexton and FOX are crying over the current anti-police attitude that is felt across the nation. Why is this happening they wonder. I wondering how they cannot connect the dots. First of all the police and government declared war on the people. This blog is loaded with petitions to curb police and government overreach and I've read at Reason about police misconduct so I would have to say the police and government started it. The problem the police and government is feeling is a pushback from the people. The people they thought would be sheep who would gladly be led to the slaughter. It turns out however they overestimated their bullshit and now the backlash is kicking them in the ass. The only difference is that years ago the cops were dickheads in the minority community and everyone rightfully protested the discrimination. I guess the cops did learn one thing: why discriminate when you can be a dickhead to everybody. This is what we are seeing. Police brutality: it was wrong then and it is wrong now. There are violent criminals that prey upon others and no I don't stick up for them so you know I'm not going to stick up for violent criminals with badges.
