Keep the heat on the Senate to vote against Loretta Lynch

From Campaign For Liberty:

This is a dangerous time for opponents of civil asset theft, gun control, drone strikes, and unrestrained Executive authority . . .

You see, next week your senators return from their two week "spring recess" and one of the top issues facing them is whether or not to confirm Loretta Lynch as Attorney General.

Lynch's nomination was widely expected to sail through the Senate weeks before the Senate's spring break, even though she is an unapologetic defender of gun control, unconstitutional NSA spying, and civil asset theft.

But then pro-liberty Americans, like you,made your voices heard!

After Campaign for Liberty flooded the Senate with nearly 100,000 petitions, the Senate leadership put off the vote on Lynch -- for now.

It's vital you and I keep the pressure on in order to block her nomination on the first cloture vote.

Otherwise, there is a real chance Senate leadership will buckle and vote on, and confirm, Loretta Lynch.

If you thought Eric Holder was bad as Attorney General, overseeing major DOJ scandals like Operation Fast and Furious, I'm afraid you and I haven't seen anything yet.

And unless they continue to hear from you, wavering Senators will assume you and I are no longer paying attention to the Lynch battle.

If that happens, it is only a matter of time before they think it is safe to cave to pressure from the administration and the media and vote to confirm Lynch.

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.

Let me remind you why it's critical you and I DEFEAT Loretta Lynch's nomination.

There is good reason why Loretta Lynch should be known as the Queen of civil asset theft.

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.

With over 4,000 federal criminal statutes 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 not only keep the heat on we must turn it up 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.

If we let up for a moment, Loretta Lynch could pick up the support she needs to take charge of the Justice Department and ramp up civil asset theft and other assaults on our liberties.

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
