Bye Bye Harry

From The National Right To Work Committee:

He spent the past eight years protecting Big Labor's forced-dues coffers and their government-granted power of compulsory unionism. . .

In return, the union bosses spent BILLIONS of forced-dues cash seized from hard-working Americans to keep him in control of the U.S. Senate.

But after three decades helping Big Labor abuse American workers and our economy, Harry Reid is calling it quits.

And it's due in large part to the vigilance of Right to Work supporters like you.

You see, your continued support made the issue of worker freedom front and center this past November.

In fact, Roll Call Magazine called the Right to Work issue one of "the attack ads Harry Reid didn't want you to see."

But thanks to your support, American voters saw the ads -- and fired Harry Reid as Majority Leader.

And there's no doubt in my mind that Harry Reid being relegated to Minority Leader is what provoked him to retire.

As a result, you and I have an opportunity to replace a Big Labor ringleader with a Right to Work champion.

The question is: will you and I be able to take advantage?

Make no mistake: Big Labor bosses will go all-out to replace Harry Reid with another union lackey to do their bidding.

And they'll put in extra time and resources to ensure they maintain control over Harry Reid's open Senate seat.

The National Journal recently reported that, "One of the early favorites is shaping up to be former state Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto, a rising star in the [Democrat] party, who has maintained close ties to Reid."

On top of that, it's being floated around Washington D.C. that Harry Reid has selected Big Labor radical Chuck Schumer to replace him as Minority Leader.

Imagine Big Labor installing Harry Reid's protégé while regaining control of the Senate in 2016 with Chuck Schumer at the helm.

It’s not a pleasant thought.

With everything that's at stake, it's vital you and I find a Right to Work champion who won't kowtow to Big Labor's threats and intimidation tactics.

That's why your National Right to Work Committee must prepare for our 2016 Candidate Survey Program.

The Candidate Survey Program surveys all potential candidates running for office and lets you and me know exactly where they stand on the issue of worker freedom.

With nearly 75% of Americans opposed to forced unionism, candidates would be remiss not to answer their Right to Work Candidate Surveys.

After all, history has shown that those politicians who kowtow to Big Labor go down in flames when faced with re-election.

And most importantly, the National Right to Work Committee will -- with paid advertisements, the Internet and mass mail -- show Americans which candidates are for and which are against the union bosses' radical forced-dues agenda.

That's why I'm asking you to consider chipping in with a contribution of $30, $20, $10 or whatever you can afford to help your National Right to Work Committee prepare for this critical Candidate Survey Program.

It's crucial your National Right to Work Committee find and inform the constituents of Nevada about a pro-worker freedom advocate to replace Harry Reid.

And what better way to celebrate Harry Reid's retirement than by generously contributing whatever you can afford to opposing yet another Big Labor lackey?

So please consider chipping in whatever you can afford right away.

Thwarting Big Labor's attempts to replace Harry Reid with another forced-unionism militant and preserving a Right to Work majority in the Senate is vital to the fight for worker freedom.

With what's at stake, I must have our budget in order early on to put heat on the candidates and keep opponents of forced unionism informed.

And the fact is, the National Right to Work Committee's Candidate Survey Program couldn't be more important in the fight against forced unionism.

So please contribute $30, $20, $10 or whatever you can afford right away.

For Worker Freedom,

Mark Mix
President, National Right to Work Committee

P.S. After a three-decade tenure, including an eight-year reign as Majority Leader, Harry Reid is finally calling it quits.

Now you and I have an opportunity to replace one of Big Labor’s ringleaders with a Right to Work champion.

But Big Labor will do everything they can to install another union lackey to do their bidding.

That's why I'm asking you to consider chipping in with a contribution of $30, $20, $10 or whatever you can afford to help your National Right to Work Committee prepare for this critical Candidate Survey Program.

Christian chaplain is being perseuted by Rainbow Mafia

From Demand Progress:

What would you do if you were a military chaplain ordered to deny Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible?

Lieutenant Commander Wes Modder (U.S. Navy) faced that exact threat.

He chose to hold fast to his Christian beliefs.

And now he is paying the price.

Public Advocate has long warned the nation that Christians are being persecuted in the military.

Radical atheist Mikey Weinstein was hired by Obama officials at the Pentagon to create new, anti-Christian guidelines for the military.

First among his priorities was silencing the evangelical military chaplains.

In his own words, their Bible-based counseling amounted to "spiritual rape."

And it's those policies that are now being used to punish and persecute Chaplain Modder.

Wes Modder has served as chaplain to Sailors, Marines, and Navy SEALs.

He is endorsed by the Assemblies of God and his commander described him as "the best of the best" and "a consummate professional leader."

Yet without any warning or a chance to defend himself, Lt. Commander Modder was stripped of his office. And now he is facing expulsion from the service.

All this is based on the 5-page "grievance" one junior assistant filed against him.

This assistant only worked with Modder for one month, yet used every minute to gather the "evidence" he needed to set the chaplain up.

He prodded at Modder constantly, baited him to make statements that could be taken out of context, took detailed notes, and even hacked into confidential medical counseling records.

In his own words, Modder described the assistant as "constantly peppering him with questions pertaining to homosexuality."

He was not forcing his views on anyone. He was patiently and respectfully sharing his Christian beliefs with an individual begging to know more.

But what Modder didn't realize was this assistant secretly identified as a homosexual.

It's now clear that all the assistant's efforts were part of a plot to entrap Chaplain Modder -- punishment for his support of Christian values.

Obviously the grievance against the Chaplain should have just been thrown out.

But the Pentagon is so desperate to endorse the Homosexual Agenda that they are trampling on the 1st Amendment religious protections.

In an interview, Chaplain Modder explained, "The military now wants a 2.0 chaplain instead of a legacy chaplain." They want a chaplain to accommodate policy that contradicts Scripture.

He has even been ordered to cease praying in the Name of Jesus.

Public Advocate has been strongly calling on Congress to step in and defend our Christian men and women in uniform.

With military leadership marching along with Obama's corrupt mandates, our soldiers will soon be left without any Christian spiritual guidance.

Are we a nation that wants to silence our Christian military chaplains?

Say "NO" and show your support for these brave chaplains and stand strong with Public Advocate by clicking here to sign your Protect Religious Liberty Directive today.

For the Family,

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

Big cable is suing the FCC over Title II Net Neutrality

From Demand Progress:

BREAKING NEWS: The telecommunications industry just sued the FCC to kill Net Neutrality.1

Just weeks ago, the FCC issued a historic decision preserving Net Neutrality. But two new lawsuits filed by the big cable and Internet Service Providers are trying to overturn the whole thing.

With the amount of money corporations like Verizon and AT&T can spend on lawyers, this is going to be a huge fight. And to win, we need to make sure the public is making our voices heard in support of the FCC.

Will you chip in $5 to help fight back against this lawsuit and save Net Neutrality?

They've given millions to politicians. They've spent millions more on lobbyists. And now they've hired an army of lawyers to accomplish what they haven't been able to do so far: kill Net Neutrality.

Why are they fighting this so hard? Because they want to give preferential treatment to big corporations and dump the rest of us into an Internet slow lane—all so they can jack up their already sky-high profits.

The scary thing is that they've had success blocking Net Neutrality in the courts before. Previous efforts by the FCC to protect Net Neutrality have been blocked by the cable industry's lawyers.

So it's not enough to let government lawyers fight this on their own. We need to make sure the public is speaking out too.

We've come too far to let Net Neutrality get killed by an army of corporate lawyers. Will you chip in $5 to help fight back?

Yes, I'll chip in $5 to save Net Neutrality.

Thanks.

Patriot Act is up for reauthorization,let's get rid of it

From Campaign For Liberty:

There's no security like prison walls.

And without your action today, I'm afraid that's exactly what will continue to be built all around us with the NSA's rampant domestic spying program.

Make no mistake. The NSA - with the Obama administration's full blessing - is collecting YOUR emails, your phone records, and your text messages.

They're collecting your Internet searches, your instant messages, online purchases, and Facebook posts.

The only good news is, if you and I can turn up enough pressure on Congress, I'm convinced we can take a huge step toward rolling back the surveillance state.

You see, Section 215 of the so-called "PATRIOT" Act is set to expire on June 15, 2015.

This is the section of federal law the surveillance-state apologists at the NSA, and their congressional allies in BOTH parties, use to justify the bulk collection of law-abiding American citizens' phone calls, emails, and Internet activity.

If you and I can stop reauthorization, I'm convinced we can bring the statists' domestic spying programs to a crashing halt.

That's why I'm counting on you to please sign your STOP THE SURVEILLANCE STATE petitions IMMEDIATELY.

STOP OBAMA's SURVEILLANCE STATE

As you'll see, these petitions insist your U.S. Representative and Senators vote "NO!" on any legislation reauthorizing the NSA's massive domestic surveillance program.

The truth is, I believe this is a fight for the very future of our Republic.

No government in the history of mankind – not even the Communist East German Stasi - has ever held the massive spying power our Federal Government holds over law-abiding U.S. citizens today . . .

And no government in world history that's ever sought this type of power has even been able to avoid the temptation for abuse.

Of course, I know the statists in Washington, D.C. say they're different. They just say, "trust us and everything will be ok."

But how can we, knowing our government has targeted political opponents, like Martin Luther King, routinely in the past?

How can we after the IRS – under this President - was caught red-handed targeting limited government organizations?

How can we after the U.S. Justice Department was illegally wiretapped reporters who dared criticize them?

How can we while watching members of BOTH parties drive our national debt to over $18.1 TRILLION and watching our President go around Congress, attempting to rule by decree, like a petty dictator?

I know the statists' excuse is "security." But regardless of what buzzword they use to defend their assaults on our freedoms, their enemy is ALWAYS the same.

It's our privacy. Our liberty. Our "greed" in wanting to keep some of the money we've rightfully earned.

Just since the lid was blown off our federal government's domestic surveillance programs in the summer of 2013, we've seen countless stories hit the press regarding NSA abuses, including:

***NSA employees spying on ex-lovers and spouses - a practice so common, the intelligence community has come up with their own jargon, i.e. "LOVEINT", to describe it;

***REFUSING to say whether or not it's spied on Members of Congress, which would effectively destroy any ability of our government's Legislative Branch to police this rogue agency;

***Effectively GUTTING attorney-client privilege by holding these confidential records.

In fact, one Bloomberg news report states that the NSA "deliberately ignored restrictions on their authority to spy on Americans multiple times in the past decade."

In fact, there are literally thousands of examples of abuse.

But this should be no surprise. Men aren't angels.
No,but then again neither are women. Neither are politicians and government bureaucrats.

What's made our country the greatest and freest nation in human history is that our Founders created a Constitution that limited the government's power, and, therefore, the damage evil men
and women can inflict.

But today, our Constitution's Fourth Amendment – which protects American citizens right to privacy from government – is under assault like never before.

With it, the protections you and I have against the actions of evil men
and women, holding the reins of our own government, are dropping like flies.

You and I must take a stand.

The good news is, opposition to government spying is higher today than any time over the past decade. Even the so-called "PATRIOT" Act's original author is now having second thoughts and public "concerns!"

That means you and I can STOP the reauthorization of Section 215 of the so-called "PATRIOT" Act, and stop the statists' all-out war on the Fourth Amendment.

But it's vital you sign your STOP THE SURVEILLANCE STATE petitions right away.

STOP OBAMA's SURVEILLANCE STATE

Time is running out. The surveillance state apologists are going to do whatever they can to reauthorize Section 215 quickly and, very likely, quietly.

That's why I've instructed Campaign for Liberty staff to pull out all the stops using mail, email, Internet ads, and even targeted radio and TV ads if I can raise the resources.

In fact, my hope is this program will rival even our efforts to pass Audit the Fed in scope and size!

But I can't do any of this without you.

So won't you please agree to your most generous gift of $30 right away?

I know that's a lot. If it's too much, please give $20 or at least $10 .

Like you, sometimes I feel like we're watching the police state nightmare from George Orwell's 1984 being built all around us.

So won't you please join me in shouting "DOWN WITH BIG BROTHER!" before it's too late - before the idea of American liberty is nothing more than a distant memory?

Please sign your STOP THE SURVEILLANCE STATE petitions along with your most generous gift of $30 , $20 or at least $10 TODAY!

For Liberty,

Dr. Ron Paul
Chairman

P.S. Section 215 of the so-called "PATRIOT" Act - the section of law statists use to justify the collection of law-abiding American citizens' phone calls, emails, and Internet activity - is set to expire on June 15, 2015.

If you and I turn up enough heat on Congress to stop reauthorization, I'm convinced we can bring the statists' domestic spying programs to a crashing halt.

That's why I'm counting on you to please sign your STOP THE SURVEILLANCE STATE petitions along with your most generous contribution of $30 , $20 or at least $10 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 I've re-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.

Keep up the presure to oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership

From Fight For The Future:

In this email I’m going to tell you something awesome and then ask you to do something important. Ready?

Last night, we helped organize a protest outside an upscale restaurant in Washington, DC where Senator Ron Wyden had planned to hold a fundraising dinner. We had two dozen people there ready to hold a giant illuminated “Save the Internet / Stop the TPP” sign right outside the windows where his funders would be dining, but the Senator and his donors were nowhere to be seen. It turns out he decided to CANCEL his fundraising dinner rather than have his donors walk past our protest!

This is good news. It means Senator Wyden is really feeling the heat. But we need to keep the pressure on. He is literally making his decision about whether to support Fast Track legislation right now.

Call Senator Ron Wyden right now and ask his staff if they told his donors the truth about why they cancelled his fundraising dinner last night? Then tell him to oppose Fast Track for the TPP. Here are his numbers: (202) 224-5244 and (503) 326-7525 (go ahead and call both!)

We’ve been staying laser-focused on Senator Ron Wyden in recent weeks, because right now he literally holds the keys to the future of the Internet. Senator Wyden has been engaged in backroom negotiations with key Republicans over so-called “Fast Track” / Trade Promotion Authority legislation, a bill that would give the Executive Branch massive new powers to negotiate trade pacts like the TPP in secret and then ram them through Congress with no meaningful debate or amendments, just a simple up or down vote.

Just yesterday, Senator Orinn Hatch told media outlets that he was submitting his “final deal” Fast Track proposal to Senator Wyden by the end of the day. The Senator is thinking long and hard right now about what he is going to do. We need to make sure he hears from as many Internet users as possible TODAY calling for him to do the right thing, stand up for REAL transparency, and oppose Fast Track for the TPP.

Please pick up the phone and call Senator Wyden right now: (202) 224-5244 and (503) 326-7525

Speak from your heart, but be polite. Not sure what to say? Try this: “I’m calling to ask Senator Wyden to oppose Fast Track for the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and I’d like to know whether the Senator told his donors the truth about why he cancelled his fundraising dinner in Washington, DC last night.”

Can’t call? Click here to chip in $10 to help keep the pressure on and stop the TPP.

Senator Wyden cancelled his fundraising dinner last night because he didn’t want to face protesters calling for him to protect Internet freedom. Let’s show him that he can run, but he can’t hide. If we can get him to do the right thing and walk away from this deal, we’ll be closer than ever to stopping the Trans-Pacific Partnership completely. If Fast Track fails, the whole TPP trade deal could come crashing down.

And that brings us one step closer to *ending* trade agreements as a backdoor route for lobbyists pushing bad Internet policy. The Internet’s greatest foes at the RIAA and MPAA have been using these secretive trade agreements to force bad Internet policy on the entire world for decades. We've finally figured out how to stop them; it just takes one last push.

We are low on funds to fight Fast Track and the TPP, but we’re still kicking butt. Please chip in $10 to stop the next SOPA from being passed in secret.

Thanks for all you’ve done! More soon,
-Evan at FFTF

P.S. If you can’t call or donate right now, that’s cool! Click here to tweet or email Senator Wyden today!


It doesn't matter when you call you can leave a voicemail if the office is closed. So if internet freedom means anything to you then put the pressure on Senator Wyden to do the right thing and oppose TPP.

This hurts

Ted Cruz is running for President. I would love that to be but unfortunately it cannot be. Why? Because Ted Cruz was born in Canada. According to the United States Constitution:

No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

It's with a heavy heart that I type this. I would have loved a Cruz Presidency. If he were born on vacation in Minnisota there would be no problem but as it stands there is just no way. The only thing he can do is step aside. Rand Paul and Mike Lee,both native born Americans can take up the pro-liberty banner that Cruz was carrying. Like I said I type this with a heavy heart and a lot of disappointment but I'm confident that Paul and/or Lee are up for the task.

Loretta Lynch's nomination is losing support but we must keep up the pressure

From Campaign For Liberty:

Ron Paul was not thinking of Loretta Lynch that day in 1999 when he took to the House floor to argue boldly against civil asset theft.

But his words, delivered with his characteristic eloquence and passion, explain why anyone who thinks civil asset theft is a "wonderful tool" should not be allowed to serve as Attorney General.

That's why I wanted to share this video of Dr. Paul's 1999 floor speech arguing on behalf of his amendment to a civil asset "reform" bill which would have ended this theft once and for all.

Unsurprisingly, that was a step "too far" for the "reformers" in 1999.

But as I write this, the fate of Loretta Lynch's nomination is uncertain. . .

And Campaign for Liberty members taking action are a big part of the reason!

This week Campaign for Liberty sent well over 80,000 petitions to the Senate opposing Obama's scheme to make the queen of civil asset theft the top law enforcement officer in the country.

And as the petitions continue rolling in, several media outlets report Lynch is losing support. . .

. . . one D.C. paper even questioned if Loretta Lynch's nomination was "unraveling."

Not a bad turn of events, considering her confirmation was considered a "sure thing" in Washington, just a few week ago.

Now we must keep the pressure up!

That is why, if you haven't already, I need you to sign your "Vote NO! on Lynch" Action Fax immediately.

Then I hope you will share this video with your friends and family members and ask them to sign their Action Fax.

If we can keep the Senate from confirming Lynch next week, Congress' schedule then works in our benefit.

You see, Friday, March 27th is the last day the Senate is scheduled to be in session before your senators leave town for "spring break."

That gives us an additional two weeks to double-down, working our network to get more activists engaged in this fight to prevent the queen of civil asset theft from becoming Attorney General.

After you've signed your Action Fax and sent this video to your friends and family, please help Campaign for Liberty contact even more Americans by chipping-in $10, $20, or whatever you can afford today.

In Liberty,

John Tate
President

P.S. Having someone as Attorney General who thinks civil asset theft is a "wonderful tool" would be a disaster for liberty.

I hope you will watch the attached video of Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul explaining in 1999 why civil asset theft is such a grave danger to liberty.

Then, be sure to share it with your family and friends and then ask them to sign their "Vote NO! on Lynch" Action Fax today.

And if you can, please chip in $10 or even $20 to help bolster Campaign for Liberty's efforts to defeat Loretta Lynch's nomination.

Establishment wants Senator Mike Lee gone

From Restore American Liberty:

Mike Lee is in danger of losing his U.S. Senate seat. Jon Huntsman Sr. and the DC elite have launched a well funded smear campaign against Mike Lee. Their plan is to replace Mike Lee with an establishment politician who can be controlled by lobbyists and party bosses. The political class hates that Mike Lee cannot be bribed and bought out. No matter what, Mike Lee always stands up for the Constitution. Will you help defend Mike Lee from Jon Huntsman Sr.'s attacks? Your contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000, or more, is needed to support vital voter outreach and advertising!

Mike Lee is is one of the most principled conservatives in Congress. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul rely on Mike Lee to help advance conservative principles in the Senate. Mike Lee has the important ability to sway votes and gather support for conservative legislation in the Senate. In fact, Mike Lee's efforts are leading to a more conservative Republican Senate caucus. It is hard to find a better Senator than Mike Lee! Conservatives must defend Mike Lee's U.S. Senate seat! It would be a disaster if Mike Lee was replaced by an establishment politician!

Please help fight defend Mike Lee from Jon Huntsman Sr.'s attacks. The establishment is trying to smear Mike Lee by branding him as an "extremist". This is a classic battle of conservatives against the establishment! Please protect Mike Lee and help defeat the establishment!

Mike Lee is a threat to the Washington establishment. He cannot be bullied by party bosses or controlled by special interest groups. Lobbyists don't waste their time with Mike Lee because they know where he stands. Mike Lee is being targeted because he is too principled! Jon Huntsman Sr. wants a politician that he can control!
Losing Mike Lee would be a major setback for conservatives everywhere. If Mike Lee is defeated, the establishment will go after every principled conservative in Congress. Will you help defend Mike Lee and fight the establishment? A victory for Mike Lee will send a strong message to the DC elite!

Conservatives everywhere must fight back against Jon Huntsman Sr.'s attacks The political establishment is pouring millions into this race and conservatives everywhere must stand up for Mike Lee. Please contribute $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000 or more to keep Mike Lee in the U.S. Senate.


I get flooded with political causes from both sides and I don't usually go with it if it's not that big a deal aka city dog catcher. But this is different. This is huge. Senator Mike Lee,along with Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz work for us,We The People. Not the party bosses. That is what has the party bosses so upset. Now they want to replace a statesman with a political hack. We can't let that happen. We've got to let the party elites know that their days of corruption are over. We The People run things now and We The People want to make sure Mike Lee stays in DC to give the elites hell and sleepless nights. Protect Mike Lee protect your Constitutional rights.

The IRS is forcing Campaign For Liberty to turn over their donor list

From Campaign For Liberty:

The battle to finally audit and EXPOSE the Federal Reserve is heating up even as I write you . . .

But I have a BIG problem.

And considering the player involved - the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) - I’m afraid it’s a problem big enough to bring down virtually ALL of Campaign for Liberty’s most critical programs if I don’t make the right decision.

And time is running out.

That’s why I must hear from you IMMEDIATELY.

You see, not long ago, Campaign for Liberty staff submitted our annual 990 filings to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

I REFUSED to comply with the IRS’s unconstitutional demands for confidential information on any of Campaign for Liberty’s donors.

The last time we did this, the IRS’s response was to hit Campaign for Liberty with a massive fine (with interest increasing daily) that could have forced us to shut our doors.

But thanks to the support of patriots like you from all over the country, I stood up to them and REFUSED to hand over sensitive Campaign for Liberty contributor information.

After many months of legal wrangling, the IRS finally abated those fines.

But the fight was expensive.

Worse, without your action today, I’m afraid our victory may prove to be short-lived.

You see, the IRS REFUSED to admit in writing they were in the wrong - no doubt waiting for their next opportunity to strike.

Now, as a “repeat offender” – and with the fight over Audit the Fed coming to a head in Washington, D.C. - I’m worried about what you and I could face in the next few weeks.

The IRS just may be the best weapon the statists have to stop you and me.

And, after last year, they’ve proven they’re willing to use it.

So if I don’t come up with a plan FAST, I’m afraid Campaign for Liberty could be looking at an outright DISASTER.

That’s why it’s so critical I hear from you IMMEDIATELY.

As you’ll see, I’ve included a special Campaign for Liberty Supporter Survey I need you to fill out right away.

There's only three choices on the form - the three choices I’m faced with today.

But before you make a decision, please let me explain everything that’s at stake . . .

As I’ve told you before, as a 501(c)(4) organization under IRS law, all Campaign for Liberty contributor information is supposed to be confidential.

This is a critical protection I wholeheartedly support.

Privacy and liberty go hand in hand.

In fact, when Thomas Paine published his pamphlet Common Sense in 1776, he did so anonymously.

Forcing organizations such as Campaign for Liberty to publicize donor information would have an incredibly chilling effect on political free speech.

Many liberty-loving Americans would silence themselves for fear of becoming targets of political “retribution.”

And after the Obama IRS was caught red-handed targeting pro-limited government groups for harassment and intimidation over the past few years, these fears could not be more well-founded.

Just last year, the IRS was required to pay $50,000 in a settlement to the National Organization for Marriage after confidential information about that group’s donors was leaked to the organization’s political enemies.

Campaign for Liberty was already targeted last spring.

What do I do if the IRS comes after us again?

As it stands today, another fight with the IRS this spring could cripple Campaign for Liberty.

It could force us to shut down ALL of our critical programs, such as our fights to protect innocent Americans from government spying and stop a government takeover of the Internet – and especially our battle to Audit the Fed.

I can’t explain what a DISASTER that would be.

You and I are so close to EXPOSING the banksters – something I’ve been fighting to do for forty years.

I’m convinced that auditing the Fed will finally show the American people the Federal Reserve System leads to:

*** Ever-expanding Big Government boondoggles like “ObamaCare.”

Now that politicians have figured out the Fed will just print money out of thin air to pay the bills if taxing and borrowing can’t make ends meet, the floodgates are wide open for even more of the statists' utopian plans;

*** Constant economic crises.

The recent housing crisis, with its resulting chaos, is just one example of an economic bubble created by centrally planned interest rates and money manipulation;

*** The destruction of the middle class.

As costs for key goods soar, those who are NOT on the government dole are forced to make do with less as the value of their money sinks;

*** Currency destruction.

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

But the statists know all this, too.

That’s why I’m concerned the IRS will come breathing down Campaign for Liberty’s neck once again.

And that's why I must hear from you right away!

I have no doubt that if the IRS’s ridiculous demands made it to court, Campaign for Liberty would win, hands down.

But I’m afraid that’s not what such a battle would be about.

Campaign for Liberty is run on a shoestring budget. We don’t have millions sitting in the bank.

Such a fight would be about draining us . . .

. . . about forcing me to take resources off of other critical programs just to keep our doors open.

So if the IRS demands our confidential donor information again, hitting us with outrageous fines, should I:

1) Just hand over confidential information on Campaign for Liberty’s top donors?

Truthfully, I’d rather hold a dinner party for Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, and Lindsey Graham than hand over any of Campaign for Liberty’s donor information!

But I’m afraid this is the ONLY way I could avoid both increasing fines and/or expensive legal fees that could force C4L to shut down critical legislative programs such as Audit the Fed.

2) Drop Audit the Fed and focus on fighting the IRS?

I can hardly even stomach the thought. I believe EXPOSING the Federal Reserve is absolutely critical to the survival of our Republic.

But I can’t go into a fight with the IRS without the proper resources. It’s just too dangerous!

3) Stand up to the IRS AND ramp up Campaign for Liberty’s legislative efforts?

Frankly, this will only be possible with an influx of funds.

With the fight over Audit the Fed heating up, and an IRS attack on C4L possible in a matter of weeks, I can’t afford to wait around.

I must be able to react on a moment’s notice.

Won’t you please fill out your Supporter Survey and tell me how to respond IMMEDIATELY?

I’m expecting to hear from the IRS in a matter of weeks.

Frankly, if the IRS comes after Campaign for Liberty again, it will be because they just don’t think we can stand up to them and keep our legislative programs running at full blast.

With your help, I want so badly to prove them WRONG!

But the decision is in your hands.

My staff will tally up the votes, and I will proceed as Campaign for Liberty’s generous members and supporters tell me to.

But if you tell me to fight back against the IRS and continue our fight to Audit the Fed, please realize this is serious.

Any potential legal fight is going to take money - money Campaign for Liberty does not have lying around.

So I must ask you to agree to an emergency gift of $30 .

I know that’s a lot. But this is the IRS we’re talking about. This is not a game.

I have to ask all Campaign for Liberty supporters to go above and beyond what they’ve done in the past.

But if $30 is just too much, won’t you please agree to $20 or at least $10 ?

This is not something I can just put off.

With Audit the Fed coming to a head, and a possible IRS attack looming, I need to hear from you right away.

I’m anxiously awaiting your response.

Please fill out your Campaign for Liberty Supporter Survey and agree to your most generous gift of $30 , $20 , or at least $10 TODAY.

For Liberty,

Ron Paul
Chairman

P.S. With the fight over Audit the Fed heating up, I’m bracing for another attack by the IRS on Campaign for Liberty.

The statists’ goal is to cripple Campaign for Liberty and perhaps even force us to shut our doors.

So I need you to tell me how I should respond to a new IRS threat using your Campaign for Liberty Supporter Survey.

And if you possibly can, please agree to your most generous gift of $30 , $20 , or at least $10 to help Campaign for Liberty fight back TODAY!

Attorney General

This is Eric Holder:



This is Eric Holder in a dress:



Any questions?

Net Neutrality is in trouble

From Demand Progress:

We've seen denial over the last few weeks, and we've seen anger.

The Cable Lobby just lost big, and now they're entering the third stage of their grieving process:

They're trying to bargain their way out of Net Neutrality rules by calling in every chit they've got in Congress -- and that list is $8 million dollars long.

That's right: The four biggest telecom giants alone donated more than $8 million to politicians last cycle.

So key committees -- led by some of the biggest recipients of that Cable Lobby cash -- are holding hearings THIS WEEK, and gearing up to try to undermine the new Net Neutrality rules.

Will you call targeted committee members to tell them they need to back off? It'll just take a minute and it'll help save the Internet.

The FCC's new Net Neutrality rules prevent blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization.

That means no slow lanes for your favorite content; no shakedowns of your favorite websites.

Nobody thought this would happen, but it did for one basic reason: All of the extraordinary work you guys did to make it impossible for the FCC to ignore us.

But our opponents like Comcast and AT&T didn't think we'd be here either. They're furious that their investments in hordes of lobbyists and members of Congress might have gone south, that we might be more powerful than the vaunted telecom political machine.

Let's confirm their suspicions and protect the rules we fought so hard to win:

Will you call key committee members to tell them they need to back off? It'll just take a minute and it'll help save the Internet.

Say no to forced Unionism say yes to S.J. Res. 8

From The National Right To Work Committee:

Your action is urgently needed.

As you know, over the last several decades, much of Congress' constitutional authority has been subsumed by an ever-growing executive branch.

And that trend has gotten much worse under the Obama regime.

Fortunately, the Congressional Review Act (CRA) allows Congress to overturn outrageous regulations like the bureaucratic power grabs rammed through the Obama Labor Board.

S.J. Res. 8 is a Joint Resolution of Disapproval that would prevent implementation of the National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB) "ambush" election rules.

Every member of Congress must now take a stand: Either to support free and fair elections or to stack the deck in favor of Big Labor.

And the House is expected to vote this week -- so time is running out!

That's why it's critical you sign your petition urging your Representative to support S.J. Res. 8.

S.J. Res. 8 would stop these new "ambush" election rules that represent nothing more than a backdoor attempt by the NLRB to undermine Congressional authority by granting Big Labor the power they sought from the Card Check Forced- Unionism Bill.

However, in proposing the "ambush" election rules, President Obama and his NLRB have again demonstrated their lack of regard for not only Congressional authority and the will of the American people but also for the rights of the American worker.

You see, this proposal would heavily deprive employees' ability to make a fully-informed decision by reducing time in which the process occurs from the current average of 38 days to as little as 11 days.

And to make matters worse, this "ambush" election rule will force businesses to surrender employees' personal information -- names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and work shifts -- to union bosses.

This gross encroachment on workers' privacy will likely result in additional harassment and intimidation at the hands of Big Labor.

With all that's at stake, I hope you'll IMMEDIATELY sign your petition, urging your Representative to support S.J. Res. 8.

The final vote is expected this Thursday, so there's not a moment to lose.

And after you've signed your petition, please consider a generous contribution of $5 or more today to help your Committee mobilize even more Americans in support of S.J. Res. 8.

Please, act right away.

For Worker Freedom,

Mark Mix

P.S. S.J. Res. 8 is a Joint Resolution of Disapproval that would prevent implementation of the NLRB's "ambush" election rules.

The House is expected to vote this Thursday -- so time is running out!

That’s why it’s vital you sign the petition, urging your Representative to support S.J. Res. 8.

Stop Loretta Lynch's nomination for Attorney General

From Campaign For Liberty:

"Civil asset forfeiture."

More properly known as civil asset "theft," it's where the government SEIZES cash, vehicles, and other private property from individuals merely SUSPECTED of wrongdoing.

No evidence. No charge. No crime!

Sounds like something out of an Orwell novel . . .

But it's a tool frequently used by federal bureaucracies such as the IRS, as well as local law enforcement agencies at all levels of government.

And without your IMMEDIATE action, I'm afraid government use of civil asset "theft" could spread like wildfire across the nation.

That's why I'm counting on you to sign your "Vote NO! on Lynch" Action Fax urging your U.S. Senators to vote against Loretta Lynch's nomination for Attorney General.

I'll give you the link to sign in just a moment, but first let me explain why it's critical you and I DEFEAT Loretta Lynch's nomination.

You see Loretta Lynch should be nationally known as the "queen" of civil asset "theft."

And for good reason, too.

As U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Loretta Lynch's office SEIZED nearly a BILLION dollars' worth of private property under the guise of civil asset "theft" just in 2013.

And now she's one confirmation vote away from being appointed Attorney General - one of the most powerful positions in the country.

Referred to as "The General," the AG commands an army of 90,000 FBI agents, investigators, lawyers, pilots, clerks, even troops!

With over 4,000 federal criminal statues to enforce, the Attorney General sets the tone for law enforcement throughout the country.

Given the fact that during her Senate hearing Loretta Lynch boldly declared asset "theft" a "useful" and "wonderful tool," it seems clear she plans to massively expand it if confirmed as Attorney General. . .

. . . I can only imagine the damage she'll do to private property rights and individual liberty if handed control over 90,000 FBI Agents, investigators, lawyers, and troops!

I don't know about you, but I surely don't want to find out.

That's why it's critical you sign your "Vote NO! on Lynch" Action Fax to your U.S. Senators IMMEDIATELY!

With her office seizing nearly a BILLION dollars in one year, there are numerous examples of law-abiding Americans having their property stolen and their God-given rights trampled on by Loretta Lynch.

Take the case of the Hirsch brothers in Long Island, for example.

Owners of Bi-County Distributors, many of their customers often paid in cash.

But when the Hirsch brothers made multiple large cash deposits of just under $10,000, federal agents accused them of attempting to avoid the reporting requirements of the Bank Secrecy Act.

Without so much as a criminal charge, IRS thugs - under the direction of District Attorney Loretta Lynch - SEIZED the Hirsch brothers' ENTIRE bank account - over $445,000.

To make matters worse, even though the DA’s office is supposed to initiate legal proceedings 60 days after seizing property, Loretta Lynch's office sat on the money for TWO YEARS - REFUSING to return it back to the Hirsch brothers.

Two years later, around the same time Barack Obama nominated her to replace Eric Holder as Attorney General, Loretta Lynch's office quietly returned the money - finding NO evidence of any wrongdoing by the Hirsch brothers!

If Loretta Lynch is confirmed as Attorney General, there's no doubt civil asset "theft" will massively expand all across the country.

And given the IRS targeting, intimidation, and harassment of conservative groups and organizations, you can be certain civil asset "theft" is a weapon Loretta Lynch will use to attack Barack Obama's political enemies.

That's why it's vital you sign your "Vote NO! on Lynch" Action Fax to your U.S. Senators IMMEDIATELY.

Unfortunately, Loretta Lynch's love affair with civil asset "theft" is just the tip of the iceberg on why her nomination must be defeated.

You see, you can be certain Loretta Lynch plans to continue Eric Holder's practice of unilaterally expanding the authority of the Executive Branch and federal power.

Take a few examples from her Senate hearings:

*** NSA Spying.

When statist Republican Lindsey Graham asked her views on the constitutionality of the NSA's warrantless wiretapping program, Lynch boldly called the program "constitutional and effective;"

*** Drone Strikes on American Citizens.

Like Attorney General Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch flat-out REFUSED to state whether or not she believed the President has the power to carry out drone strikes on US soil against American citizens;

*** Executive Authority.

Loretta Lynch supports Barack Obama's misuse of Executive Orders to effectively overturn the will of Congress and write news laws via executive fiat.

If you agree Loretta Lynch's nomination must be defeated, please sign your Action Fax to your U.S. Senators IMMEDIATELY.

The truth is, Loretta Lynch's confirmation vote is expected to come down to the wire - potentially being determined by as little as one vote.

At the moment, four Big Government Republicans have publicly declared their support for Lynch.

So assuming all Democrats and those four Republicans vote for Lynch, she'll get 50 votes - requiring Vice President Joe Biden to come in and cast the tiebreaker.

That's why you and I must turn up the heat on the Senate like never before to DEFEAT Loretta Lynch's nomination.

So please sign your "Vote NO! on Lynch" Action Fax urging your U.S. Senators to vote against Loretta Lynch's nomination for Attorney General.

After you sign your Action Fax I must ask you to please chip in an emergency contribution to help C4L defeat Loretta Lynch's nomination.

As you know, Dr. Paul and I are bracing for another attack by the IRS on Campaign for Liberty.

The statists’ goal is to cripple Campaign for Liberty and perhaps even force us to shut our doors.

And Loretta Lynch as Attorney General could drive the final nail in the coffin.

So today I must ask you to agree to an emergency gift of $30 .

I know that’s a lot.

But we're talking about a position that commands 90,000 FBI Agents, investigators, lawyers, and troops.

This is not a game.

That's why I have no choice but to ask all Campaign for Liberty supporters to go above and beyond what they’ve done in the past.

But if $30 is just too much, won’t you please agree to $20 or at least $10 ?

Whatever amount you can afford to contribute, even if it's just $5, will help C4L turn up the heat on the Senate to DEFEAT Loretta Lynch's nomination.

So please chip in whatever you can afford to this fight.

But most importantly, sign your Action Fax to your U.S. Senators IMMEDIATELY!

Thank you in advance for taking action.

In Liberty,

John Tate
President

Tell Trey Gowdy you have his back

From Stop Hillary PAC:

You know House Republicans finally created a select committee to investigate the Benghazi attacks -- and the deaths of four Americans.

South Carolina Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy is leading leading the investigation.

And he has come under tremendous attack from Hillary Clinton, her campaign apparatus, and the left wing elite media -- he needs your immediate support.

That's why I'm leading the charge to support Trey Gowdy. Will you please stop what you are doing right now, and pledge your support by signing your "Statement of Support for Congressman Trey Gowdy?"

You and I both know Congressman Gowdy has shown a talent for tough questioning of administration officials. The select committee under Trey Gowdy's leadership was the first to discover Hillary's use of her own hidden/personal email server.

It's only taken Gowdy a few months to find what other investigations were unable to reveal after years of "oversight." Perhaps, finally...Americans will find the truth out about the Benghazi attacks. That is...only if we can keep the committee doors open.

As you know, previous attempts to uncover the truth were met with stonewalling by Hillary Clinton and Obama administration apologists.

Make no mistake: this stonewalling has EVERYTHING to do with protecting Hillary Clinton's chances of becoming President in 2016. You could hear the desperation in Hillary's own voice when she shrilly yelled, "WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE!!!!" at an earlier fact-finding hearing.

When it comes to going after Bill and Hillary Clinton, you can never hope to defeat them in the news media -- the elite media loves them. And the Clintons and their friends in the news media will do everything they can to discredit and Trey Gowdy and his Committee investigating Benghazi.

That's why you and I -- and the American people -- must stand up and stand behind Trey Gowdy and the efforts of his committee.

Will you stand up for Congressman Gowdy by signing your "Statement of Support for Congressman Trey Gowdy?"

Clearly, Hillary Clinton and those surrounding her think the deaths of four brave Americans makes no difference. Clinton simply cannot be troubled with anything that might stain the red carpet that has been rolled out for her Presidential run by the liberal elite and their accomplices in the media.

Friend, now that Trey Gowdy's Congressional fact-finding mission has begun to uncover the truth...Gowdy is under tremendous attack from Hillary and the Left, squarely in the crosshairs of the Clintons and their political war machine.

Gowdy needs your immediate support. Democrats are going all out to shut down the Benghazi hearings.

Let me explain:

>>>Democrat leaders in Congress are pressuring the House Administration Committee to tarnish the Benghazi panel's credibility by questioning the committee's spending in an effort to cripple and even SHUT DOWN Trey Gowdy's Select Committee on Benghazi.

>>>In an attempt to prevent Hillary Clinton from testifying, ranking Democrat members of the panel sent Chairman Gowdy a blistering round of letters accusing him of showmanship and improper hearing procedures.

That's why Stop Hillary PAC is leading the effort to build a grassroots army to defend and support Congressman Trey Gowdy's efforts to uncover the truth.

This effort starts with your signed personalized "Statement of Support for Congressman Trey Gowdy." Will you sign so that I can personally deliver your signature along with hundreds -of-thousands of others to Congressman Gowdy's committee and let Congressman Gowdy know you have his back?

Remember, those that dared to uncover the truth about the Monica Lewinsky/Bill Clinton affair and Clinton's lies under oath about it? The Clinton's and their friends in the media methodically destroyed the careers and reputations of those that dared to lead the impeachment proceedings, including Congressman Bob Livingston, Bob Barr, Henry Hyde, Newt Gingrich, Helen Chenoweth, and Dan Burton.

Bottom line? If Americans want Congressman Gowdy to uncover the truth about Benghazi and Hillary's role in it, Gowdy will need our support. So please, take just a second of your time to sign the "Statement of Support for Congressman Trey Gowdy."

Here are just a few examples of the attacks on Trey Gowdy so far by the Clinton apologists:

>>>Gowdy is a lunatic: Left-wing publication Mother Jones has called Gowdy a lunatic because he is a "tea-party true believer."

>>>Gowdy is politicizing Benghazi: Democrat Campaign chief, Congressman Steve Israel, and Nancy Pelosi are accusing Gowdy of politicizing Benghazi saying, "House Republicans are spending all their time trying to invent new ways to politicize the Benghazi tragedy."

>>>Gowdy is stupid and confused: Ranking Democrat member Elijah Cummings believes Trey Gowdy is stupid and confused saying, "I do not understand what the House Republicans are doing on Benghazi, and apparently they don't either."

>>>Gowdy's hair is unacceptable: MSNBC is attacking Gowdy's hair. That's right, far-left cable news outfit MSNBC is even attacking Gowdy's hair -- mocking his hair as "unkempt, multi-directional silver locks."

These are just a few of the outrageous attacks Trey Gowdy is experiencing on a daily basis.

That's why your personalized "Statement of Support for Congressman Trey Gowdy" is so important. Please click here immediately and let Congressman Gowdy know you have his back.

We need to let him know he has the support of Americans across the country and that we will have his back when faced with the mud slinging onslaught that is sure to come his way.

If Congressman Gowdy can finally uncover the truth, then, perhaps we can stop Hillary once and for all...because, she MUST BE STOPPED.

And in order to achieve that goal, WE NEED YOU ON OUR TEAM TODAY.

Here's how you can help:

1.First, go here and sign the "Statement of Support for Congressman Trey Gowdy." It's important that Congressman Gowdy knows that we have his back.

2.Tell your friends! Please forward this email to every friend or family member that agrees with you that we MUST stop Hillary tomorrow by supporting Congressman Trey Gowdy today. Also, post on facebook, twitter, and every other social media outlet to spread the word.

3.Make a donation. We simply cannot achieve our goals without building a substantial war chest. Hillary and pro-Hillary PAC's have already raised millions to propel her to office. We MUST match that dollar for dollar. So, please, make a donation today. If you can afford a donation of $50, $100, $250, $500 or more, I would encourage you to do so today. However, a smaller symbolic donation of $20.16 will go a long way in helping pay for our efforts.

Friend... the choice is clear. Do we want our next President to be a solid conservative Republican with a fresh and vibrant voice to lead our country? Or do we want the ultra-liberal, retread that is Hillary Clinton?

Please, don't delay, join our team by signing the "Statement of Support for Congressman Trey Gowdy" and making a donation today.

For America!

Senator Ted Harvey

P.S. Trey Gowdy is our best hope to finally get the answers Americans deserve, but he needs our help now more than ever. Chip in just $5 (or more if you can afford it) so we'll have the funds to support Gowdy and protect him from the Clinton media machine as he digs to clear the federal stonewall!

Setting the record straight on Net Netrality

I'm getting tired of this anti-Net Neutrality crap. The anti's are going around telling everyone that this is a bad thing. It will put the government in control of the internet. It will kill innovation. Bullshit. Now the internet is protected from greedy corporate interests. ISP's that wanted to decide more favorable status to the big businesses since they'll be the ones who will be able to afford the high speed internet at a higher cost. A mom and pop operation operating in someone's garage may not be able to afford high speed internet at a higher cost thus their business not only suffers it may cease to exist which is guaranteed to make the fat cats even fatter. Net Neutrality puts Fred's Books on the same level as Barnes&Noble. It puts Rusy's Burgers on the same level as McDonald's. As far as innovation goes. Are you using the same phones they had in the 1950's? They used to use big bulky cable wires today we have light weight fiber optics. So there has been advancement in use of phones and the technology to improve their use. You know what? You've been lied to by 4 Cable and communication giants. One of which is out to show everyone that monopoly is not just a board game.

Audit The Fed gains traction

From Campaign For Liberty:

Today, the Senate Banking Committee held a hearing on Federal Reserve Reform.

While Audit the Fed was not an official topic of the hearing, it was a topic of discussion. Clearly, Audit the Fed is on the minds of the Committee - thanks to Campaign for Liberty members like you.

You see, in the days leading up to the hearing, Campaign for Liberty faxed over 50,000 petitions to the office of Senate Banking Committee Chairman Richard Shelby and members of the Committee!

I also submitted written testimony to the Committee explaining the importance of Audit the Fed and refuting the Federal Reserve’s misinformation campaign against the bill.

I hope you enjoy this video and will share it with your family and friends.

After you watch the video please consider chipping in $10 or more to help Campaign for Liberty’s efforts to pass Audit the Fed.

For Liberty,

Indiana makes a mistake but corrects the problem

INDIANA COURT RULES PEOPLE HAVE NO RIGHT TO RESIST ILLEGAL POLICE HOME ENTRY
Geoffrey Grider | May 14, 2011

Your home is no longer your own

As law-abiding citizens of these United States, we trust in the police to protect us and keep us safe. But a recent ruling in Indiana opens the flood gates to potential abuse of a person’s right to live as they chose within the walls of their own home. The saying that a ‘man’s home is his castle’ is true no longer. The ruling allows police in Indiana to enter a person’s home with no warrant, with no compelling reason for them to enter, and the home owner has no legal recourse to stop them. America, please pay attention, as the rights you take so much for granted are gradually being rescinded. Remember that Obama pledged to build a private army, a private police force, that would do his bidding. Hmmm….

“INDIANAPOLIS | Overturning a common law dating back to the English Magna Carta of 1215, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Hoosiers have no right to resist unlawful police entry into their homes.

In a 3-2 decision, Justice Steven David writing for the court said if a police officer wants to enter a home for any reason or no reason at all, a homeowner cannot do anything to block the officer’s entry.

“We believe … a right to resist an unlawful police entry into a home is against public policy and is incompatible with modern Fourth Amendment jurisprudence,” David said. “We also find that allowing resistance unnecessarily escalates the level of violence and therefore the risk of injuries to all parties involved without preventing the arrest.” David said a person arrested following an unlawful entry by police still can be released on bail and has plenty of opportunities to protest the illegal entry through the court system.”

Well you can imagine that cops royally abused their authority because of thie ruling. Also I imagine it caused a lot of problems. That is why this bill was crafted:

State Passes Law to Legalize Shooting Police
By Matt Agorist on February 3, 2014

Finally some rational legislation is passed concerning ‘public servants’ unlawfully entering another person’s property.

All too often, we see examples of cops breaking into the wrong house and shooting the family dog, or worse, killing a member of the family.

Well, Indiana has taken action to “recognize the unique character of a citizen’s home and to ensure that a citizen feels secure in his or her own home against unlawful intrusion by another individual or a public servant.”

This special amendment is no revolutionary new thought, only common sense.

Self-defense is a natural right; when laws are in place that protect incompetent police by removing one’s ability to protect one’s self, simply because the aggressor has a badge and a uniform, this is a human rights violation. Indiana is leading the way by recognizing this right and creating legislation to protect it.

Of course cops have already begun to fear monger the passage of this bill, “If I pull over a car and I walk up to it and the guy shoots me, he’s going to say, ‘Well, he was trying to illegally enter my property,’ ” said Joseph Hubbard, 40, president of Jeffersonville Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 100. “Somebody is going get away with killing a cop because of this law.”

Instead of looking at the beneficial aspect of this law, which creates the incentive for police to act responsibly and just, Hubbard takes the ‘higher than thou’ attitude and is simply worried about himself.

How about questioning the immoral laws that you are enforcing in the first place? Or how about sympathizing with the innocent people whose pets and family members have been slain, due to police negligence?

Who’s to say that a cop pulling you over to extort money from you for the victimless crime of not wearing a seatbelt, isn’t an unlawful act? Or how about breaking down your door in the middle of the night to kidnap you and throw you in a cage for possessing a plant?

Hopefully this legislation will lead to these arbitrary traffic and drug enforcement “laws” in place solely for revenue collection (aka theft), being brought into question.

The law states:

(i) A person is justified in using reasonable force against a public servant if the person reasonably believes the force is necessary to:
(1) protect the person or a third person from what the person reasonably believes to be the imminent use of unlawful force;
(2) prevent or terminate the public servant’s unlawful entry of or attack on the person’s dwelling, curtilage, or occupied motor vehicle; or
(3) prevent or terminate the public servant’s unlawful trespass on or criminal interference with property lawfully in the person’s possession, lawfully in possession of a member of the person’s immediate family, or belonging to a person whose property the person has authority to protect.

It is through legislation such as this, which will empower people again and aid in bringing down these tyrants from their pedestals, who are given free rein to murder and pillage without consequence.
