Support pro-liberty Congressman Tim Huelskamp

Do you want to repeal ObamaCare root and branch? Do you want to end Obama’s warrantless spying on American citizens? Do you want to stop Common Core?

I know you do. And I also know that Congressman Tim Huelskamp has been fighting every day in Washington, DC to do the same thing. He’s proven it every single day. That’s why he has a lifetime score of 97% with FreedomWorks.

Huelskamp voted to defund ObamaCare. He voted to kill the Death Tax. He voted to stop Obama’s unconstitutional abuses of power. In fact, every time John Boehner tried to stop conservatives, Rep. Huelskamp stood up and fought. He did it because he’s the rarest of things, an honest politician. He’s fought for you. And he’s fought for the values you and I believe in. And, that’s why I’m asking you to chip in $50, $35, or $15 right now to help reelect Tim Huelskamp to Congress. 100% of your donation WILL go directly to his campaign!

Did you know that Rep. Huelskamp is a proud member of the House Freedom Caucus? You know, the Caucus that helped fire John Boehner. These brave conservative congressmen are the only ones who are standing up to the progressives in Congress. And that’s why it’s absolutely crucial that you and I protect them. And, that’s why I’m asking if you want to help the thin red line in Congress by chipping in $15, right now.

I cannot stress enough how important it is that we protect conservatives like Tim Huelskamp. You know that every single member of the House Freedom Caucus has a target on their back. And Huelskamp has a big one. In fact, John Boehner’s cronies already recruited a primary challenger.

We can’t let them win. We can’t let them beat him. Because, the liberals will do everything they can to stop Rep. Huelskamp. And they’ll do it, because they’re afraid of him, and they’re afraid of the House Freedom Caucus. Well, I’m not going to back down, I’m going to stand with Congressman Huelskamp.

And I’m hoping you’ll stand with me and help protect the conservatives that risk their careers every day fighting for the Constitution, fighting for your freedom, and fighting for the values that made this country great. That’s why we have to defend Tim. We’ve got to support members of the House Freedom Caucus, like Tim Huelskamp. So if you want to help us defend them, please donate $50, $35, or $15 right now.

Let’s get freedom working in Congress again.

A nicer gentler Russia



Big shit is going down in the Middle East with Russia bombing what they say are ISIS targets yet they are no where near an ISIS encampment. It turns out they are bombing their buddy's enemies,people we are supporting. Russia,an considerate invader,is coming not only to the Middle East,no soon they'll appear in the Middle West. As in midwest USA. It's not that far fetched. Russian planes have flown very close to the Alaskan and Californian coastlines. Apparently Putin has slacked off on recognizing American sovereignty. Obama is really good at going after Republicans,especially conservatives with no mercy whatsoever yet when it comes to foreign policy he cowers. That is how it is. There is no other way to explain it. Will Putin invade the USA? He wants to get the band back together but America has always been an adversary. If he can capture the USA he believes he can push Russian dominance worldwide. That has been the Soviet dream and Putin is a ?former? KGB colonel and the dream of the Soviet Union was worldwide dominance with the USA on Russia's leash.

Ban private prisons

From CREDO:

Sen. Bernie Sanders just introduced a bill to end one of the biggest contributors to America’s broken criminal justice system: private, corporate-run, for-profit prisons.1

Today, the U.S. has the highest incarceration rate in the world, and poor people and people of color suffer the most at the hands of our out-of-control incarceration industry.2 That’s partly because the corporations that operate for-profit prisons are primarily concerned with their bottom lines. To maximize profits, those corporations advocate for increased incarcerations and unreasonably strict parole and release laws. And they win.

Corporations should not be able to profit from mass incarceration. The Justice Is Not For Sale Act, introduced by Sen. Sanders and Rep. Raul Grijalva, bars federal, state, and local governments from contracting with private prisons. We need to come out in strong support of this bill.

Tell Congress: Ban private for-profit prisons.

Out of the 1.6 million people incarcerated in 2013, over 8 percent of them were in private prisons. Reports show that inmates in these facilities suffer worse conditions, including more assaults and higher recidivism.3, 4 For-profit prisons are also incentivized to advocate for laws that reduce basic rights, benefits, and entitlements inmates receive while in prison.

And when for-profit prison corporations lobby for harsh laws that lead to more incarcerations, incarceration rates rise throughout the entire U.S. correctional system, leaving taxpayers to foot the bill for maintaining the highest incarceration rate in the world.

In addition to banning private prisons, the Justice Is Not For Sale Act would enact a number of other measures to address mass incarceration. One would eliminate the mandatory bed quotas that require U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to hold an average of 34,000 individuals in detention on a daily basis. Another would restore the federal parole system. The abolition of the federal parole system was a major factor in the explosion of the federal prison population since 1980, and makes it impossible for federal prisoners to access parole boards that can look individually at their sentences.

Sign the petition now and tell Congress to get behind a bill that provides real solutions to America’s mass incarceration crisis.

Big Telecom will shut down the government to get their way on Net Neutrality

From Open Media:

Ever since our historic win in February to stop the Internet Slow Lane, Big Telecom has been waging a war to roll back our victory.

If Big Telecom cronies try their underhanded tactics in Congress, it will amount to little more than a ransom note: “Bring back the Slow Lane or we’ll shut down the government.” If successful, this would be the lowest attempt yet to reverse our progress.1

We need your help to amplify your voices right now and launch an immediate campaign if their evil plan makes it to the final vote. It’s a very dynamic situation and anything could happen in the final hours.

The more we can raise in the next 24 hours, the more ready we will be, and louder we will get. So please chip in now.

Big Telecom are using every tool they can. They even have the audacity to claim that throttling and slowing your internet connection and your favourite sites counts as protected “free speech” under the 1st Amendment.2

Yeah, right. Give me a break.

Anything could happen in the next 24 hours. If they get their way tomorrow, we’ll wake up in a world where our favourite sites become slower and more expensive. We can’t let that happen.

We’re in this for the long haul— defending our Net Neutrality win defends the foundation of the open Internet. Can you donate today so we’re ready for what comes next?

For the Internet,

Josh Tabish, on behalf of your OpenMedia team

P.S. Thanks to the Internet, we’re incredibly efficient. But it still takes resources to amplify your voice and protect long-term wins. Whatever we raise, we’ll use to defend Net Neutrality and keep the Internet Slow Lane from ever coming back.

Force the Senate to have an up and down vote on Audit The Fed

From Campaign For Liberty:

The easy money policies of the Federal Reserve has set our economy on a collision course with disaster.

And it’s up to you and me to make sure Congress feels the heat this fall.

Please take a moment to watch the special message C4L Senior Vice President Norm Singleton and I have prepared for you and find out how you can help today!

Tell the FCC to lower phone costs for prison inmates

From Free Press:

We believe in the rights of all people to connect freely. But for the families of millions of incarcerated people across the country, it can be nearly impossible to make that connection.

Prison phone rates are astronomical, with the price of a 15-minute phone call soaring above $5 in some states.

Many families simply can’t afford these sky-high rates. For the 2.7 million children with an incarcerated parent, that means forgoing phone calls that could help them maintain healthy relationships. Studies show that regular contact with loved ones helps reduce recidivism. That means less crime, and stronger communities.

As early as October, the FCC will decide on new protections that could dramatically lower the price of prison phone calls, and open the doors for millions of families to connect without breaking the bank.

Urge the FCC to end unreasonable prison phone rates.

Prison phone companies are pocketing millions by charging prisoners’ families these predatory rates. And since a disproportionate number of prisoners are people of color, these rates harm marginalized communities in particular.

Many prisons also demand huge commissions from phone companies for the exclusive right to provide service. This drives rates up and up, punishing low-income families and forcing them to either miss out on calls or strain their budgets to the breaking point.

Tell the FCC to cap exorbitant rates for phone calls to prisoners’ families.

In 2013, the FCC passed the rules capping long-distance prison-phone rates. Now the agency can finish the job and establish local rate caps, eliminate fees and end prison-phone company commissions.

Tell the FCC it’s time to stand up for our most vulnerable communities and make prison phone calls affordable for families trying to stay connected.

Thanks for all that you do—

Fiorina out of touch when it comes to marijuana

DAVENPORT, IA — “I was trying to be brave,” Shelly Van Winkle told ThinkProgress minutes after a tense exchange with Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina over medical marijuana.

Van Winkle, a Gulf War veteran, is also the “first and only certified cannabis nurse” in Iowa. At a voter forum at St. Ambrose University on Friday morning, she asked Fiorina what she would do to make it easier for patients — like veterans with PTSD, and children with cancer — to access medicinal marijuana.

“You’re not going to like my answer,” Fiorina responded before hearkening back to her breast cancer diagnosis in 2009. At the time, she recounted, her doctor asked “if I was interested in medicinal marijuana.”

“I said ‘No,’ and his response was ‘Good,’ because its a chemically complex compound that we do not understand — we do not understand how it reacts with chemotherapy and all of the other statements,” she said. “It is true today …. [that before you get chemotherapy] you cannot have any marijuana in your system for at least 30 days …”

Van Winkle interrupted. “That’s no longer true, ” she said.

Fiorina paused. “So I will also tell you something else. We lost a daughter to addiction,” Fiorina said, before recounting the death of her daughter due to drug and alcohol abuse.

According to the Annenburg Public Policy Center, it is no longer true that doctors don’t know how marijuana reacts with other drugs. “Prescribing information for approved versions of medical marijuana does contain drug interaction information, and studies have turned up few problems in terms of interactions with cancer therapies, as well as other types of medication,” the organization’s FactCheck.org website reads.

Van Winkle, who is a Registered Nurse with the American Cannabis Nurses Association, said she was disappointed in Fiorina’s answer — one, because she was not talking about recreational drug use, and two, because she felt that Fiorina had outdated views on the science and culture of medicinal marijuana.

“Her answer fell back to 20 years ago, when you could go to Venice Beach to smoke a joint,” she said. “If she wants to be a viable candidate, she has to get with current research.”

The issue was particularly personal to Van Winkle, a veteran and nurse who treats patients with PTSD. “Cannabis helps these people,” she said, recounting the high suicide rate among recent veterans. A recent study showed that veterans coming home from war now have a 50 percent higher suicide rate than non-military civilians.

Some doctors do advocate medical marijuana as an alternative PTSD treatment to traditional “heavy-duty” antidepressants like Zoloft and Paxil, and at least two states currently allow VA Hospitals to prescribe medical marijuana for PTSD. Other countries, like Israel, have much more lax laws on its usage.

“The rest of the world has moved on,” Van Winkle said. “In the U.S., we let people die.”

Van Winkle said she wanted to make medical marijuana an issue in the federal election. She noted that, while 23 states have passed laws allowing medicinal marijuana, federal law still treats them as “criminals.”

“I’m asking [Fiorina] to step up and make this an election issue,” she said. ” She fell back to rhetoric, but when it comes to medicine, it shouldn’t be about politics. It should be about science.”

Hold Senator Mitch McConnell to his promise to hold a vote on Audit The Fed

From Campaign For Liberty:

She's not the President. She's not a member of Congress.

She's not the head of any country or nation.

She's not even an elected official!

Yet Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen is considered the “most powerful woman in the world.”

Even though she may be considered the "most powerful woman in the world," Janet Yellen's worst nightmare is Ron Paul's Audit the Fed bill!

Today I'm counting on you to help make that nightmare a reality.

So won't you please sign your petitions and chip in a contribution to our "Turn up the Heat! Audit the Fed Blitz!" right away?

Right now is the time for you and I to TURN UP the heat.

The phony "spending" fight and political charades over the so-called "Continuing Resolution" will be over in just a matter of days.

When that smoke clears, C4L plans to launch a MASSIVE grassroots mobilization blitz designed to turn up the heat on Mitch McConnell to follow through on his campaign promise to hold a clean Senate vote on Audit the Fed.

I'm talking HARD-HITTING MAIL AND EMAIL to mobilize up to 10 million Americans across the country . . .

AN ALL-OUT EARNED MEDIA BLITZ . . .

A MASSIVE SOCIAL MEDIA AND INTERNET AD CAMPAIGN . . .

And TARGETED RADIO, NEWSPAPER, AND EVEN TV ADS -- if C4L can raise the resources.

The good news is, a very generous donor is so fired up about our opportunity to force a Senate vote on Audit the Fed this fall that he wants to help expand our program even more.

He understands the Federal Reserve's slick insider pals are set to launch a massive PR blitz to SMEAR supporters of Audit the Fed, so he wants to make sure we have the resources to generate maximum pressure on Mitch McConnell and the U.S. Senate to hold a floor vote on Ron Paul's Audit the Fed bill!

In fact, he's so excited he's offering to MATCH - DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR - every donation received before Wednesday, September 30!

So please sign your petitions and chip in a contribution (doubled!) to help Campaign for Liberty turn up the heat on the Senate to Audit the Fed.

Even if it's just $5, any amount you can afford to contribute will be greatly appreciated and put to immediate use.

And as long as you chip in before September 30, your contribution will be DOUBLED!

So please take advantage of this generous Matching Grant offer by chipping in a contribution right away.

Please don't delay. Take action now!

Let's give Mitch McConnell -- and the ENTIRE U.S. Senate -- an earful.

Don't let the government steal from the disabled and elderly

From CREDO:

Social Security benefits are supposed to help senior citizens cover the costs of day-to-day expenses like food, clothing and shelter.

But more than 160,000 Social Security beneficiaries nationwide have their monthly checks garnished to pay off federal student loan debt, some of which is decades old.

Congressional Progressive Caucus co-chairs Raul Grijalva and Keith Ellison are currently leading a congressional effort to push the the Department of Education to stop garnishing Social Security benefits for student debt.

Sign the petition: Stop garnishing Social Security benefits for student loan debt.

Student debt in the United States is spiraling out of control. The total amount of student debt owed by Americans has increased nearly fivefold since 2003 alone, from $253 billion to a staggering $1.2 trillion. But we can’t solve our student debt crisis on the backs of senior citizens.

This isn’t how Social Security is supposed to work. When the program was created more than 80 years ago, banks and other creditors couldn’t take Social Security benefits away to pay off debts. The benefits were intended to be a guarantee that Americans could count on, with no strings attached.

But in 1996, Congress stripped this protection away by adding a loophole to the law allowing Social Security benefits to be garnished to pay debts owed to the federal government. Now, nearly 20 years later, more than 160,000 senior citizens are having their living expenses garnished to pay off federal student debt.

It’s long past time for the Department of Education to reverse course and place an immediate moratorium on garnishing our seniors’ Social Security benefits to pay for outstanding student loans.

Sign the petition: Stop garnishing Social Security benefits for student loan debt.


The greed and encroachment by this administration is just mind blowing. The faster we are rid of Obama the better.

Public Advocate on Boehner's departure

From Public Advocate:

Have you heard the good news?

House Speaker John Boehner is quitting at the end of October thanks to your efforts.

He's not just resigning as Speaker, but he will be leaving Congress altogether.

This comes just two days after I delivered over 25,000 Public Advocate petitions to House members demanding they vote to remove Boehner as Speaker of the House.

Boehner and Congress heard your message.

Public Advocate was the leading pro-Family organization mobilizing supporters after Rep. Mark Meadows filed a "Motion to Vacate" Boehner from the Speaker's chair in late July.

And your support was a major contribution to this victory.

While others took Congress' summer recess off in August...

My staff and I at Public Advocate put in long hours perfecting our proven grassroots strategy to deliver this victory.

But like previous Public Advocate victories, it came with a cost.

You see, Public Advocate invested a significant amount of financial support into contacting and collecting petition signatures from thousands of pro-Family Americans to "Fire Boehner."

And without additional funding, I'm afraid Boehner's Lieutenant and Majority Leader, Kevin McCarthy, will assume the Speaker's role.

You may remember McCarthy's refusal to bring Rep. Raul Labrador's First Amendment Defense Act to the floor for a vote.

We simply cannot afford another weak-kneed Speaker of the House.

Not only will Public Advocate need to continue to mobilize supporters to make sure Congress elects pro-Family leadership…

But we need to watch out for Boehner's revenge too.

As a lame duck, I'm afraid Boehner may sneak through several bills at the demand of the radical Homosexual Lobby and Boehner's spite.

The newest version of the Gay Bill of Special Rights (H.R. 3185) and the Homosexual Classrooms Act (H.R. 846) could very well pass the House before Boehner resigns in October.

That's why I'm counting on to chip in $10 or $25 right away to help fund Public Advocate's next victory.

It's crucial Public Advocate receives the necessary funds to thwart a lame duck Speaker from selling out to the radical Homosexual Lobby.

In fact, just today I've seen several emails from radical homosexual groups plotting their response.

I am exhausted from repeated trips to D.C. delivering petitions, lobbying Congressmen and organizing protests against Boehner.

But I'm revitalized by the thousands of pro-Family Americans like you who helped shock the political establishment with this victory.

I've put my staff on high alert so we can act immediately should Boehner and the Homosexual Lobby try to sneak these bills into law.

Additionally, we're developing plans to identify and support a pro-Family champion's bid for Speaker should one run.

But we won't be able to repeat this victory unless our grassroots funding account is replenished immediately.

Will you please consider chipping in $10 or $25 right away?

Your support will be critical to fully implement our proven grassroots strategy to guard against the Gay Bill of Special Rights, the Homosexual Classrooms Act, and replace Boehner with a pro-Family Champion.

Thank you so much for your support towards this victory.

For the Family,

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

P.S. House Speaker John Boehner is giving up! He doesn't have the votes to remain Speaker thanks to Public Advocate supporters pressuring Congress, and is quitting at the end of October.

But with this victory comes a warning. I'm afraid Boehner and the radical Homosexual Lobby may be plotting to ram through the Gay Bill of Special Rights and the Homosexual Classrooms act next month.

And unless Public Advocate replenishes our funds from this victory, I'm going to have to cut back our strategy to defeat them.

Please help right away by considering chipping in $10 or $25 so Public Advocate can defend against the Homosexual Lobby and promote pro-Family leadership.


Pro-family,pro-weed candidate.

Big Telecom to put anit-freedom measures in spending bill

from Open Media:

You won’t believe this.

Just days after you helped file a historic legal brief in support of Net Neutrality,1 insider sources have confirmed that Big Telecom’s lobbyists could destroy the open Internet by sneaking dangerous new powers into a gigantic spending bill that has nothing to do with the web.2

This would be an amazingly underhanded way for telecom giants to destroy Net Neutrality and impose their Internet slow lane plan on all of us. It's wrong and we can't stand for it.

But decision-makers in Congress can stop this. If enough of us speak out, we can convince them to oppose any bill that would threaten the open Internet. Add your voice today before the rapidly-approaching deadline.3

If successful, these giants would gain the power to force your favorite websites into an Internet slow lane and raise prices on you and your family.4 This would make many of your favorite sites buffer sporadically, and return errors.

You see, Big Telecom lobbyists are working behind closed doors to exploit the spending bill process because they know that the government has to pass it soon, or face a federal shutdown.5

Well, we will remain vigilant and stand on guard. And to do that, we need large numbers to tell Congress to oppose any bill that threatens the open Internet. Speak out before the final deadline on September 30.

At OpenMedia, our mission is to ensure every one of our community members can amplify their voice on the issues they are passionate about.

That's why we worked with million of Internet advocates and hundreds of organizations to make sure the the FCC passed the strongest, most enforceable rules possible.6

But we can’t let them take that away from us now. Speak out before it’s too late.

–Josh, on behalf of OpenMedia

P.S., We can stop Big Telecom giants from slowing your favorite websites to a painful crawl – but only through your support. Chip in now so we can make sure your voice is heard.

Support Ken Buck a man of principles

From Congressman Ken Buck:

When I ran for office, I committed to you that I would provide Conservative Leadership and an Independent Voice. That is exactly what I delivered.

Heritage Action rated me the most conservative Member of Congress. When it was necessary, I stood for my principles against leadership in my own party as an independent voice. My commitment has always been to put the interests of the 4th District of Colorado above anything else.

We have an important fundraising deadline at the end of the month. With leadership changes in Congress, we need a conservative vision now more than ever. Will you donate to support my campaign?

With all the challenges ahead, I will continue to provide conservative leadership and an independent voice in Washington, DC. Can you support us by donating $25, $50, or $100 today?

Thank you for your support!

P.S. Washington, DC is a mess and needs conservative leadership. Can you donate to our campaign today?


Ken Buck is against the nuclear deal with Iran.

Ken Buck is a man of principles. As a prosecutor Ken Buck refused to prosecute a young man that was falsely accused of rape. He saw through little Miss Liar's lies and wanted nothing to do with it. Feminist groups have hated him ever since. This is a stand up guy. You may want to keep in Congress where he can do some good.

National Labor Relations Board bullies workers

From The National Right To Work Committee:

The radical Obama Labor Board is at it again -- trapping workers under unwanted union monopoly control.

Dissatisfied with United Auto Workers (UAW) Local 3066 union bosses, a group of battery plant workers in South Carolina recently circulated a petition to remove the unwanted union from their workplace.

After a majority of workers signed the petition, the employer agreed to withdraw recognition of the union.

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) General Counsel deemed the workers' petition invalid and demanded that the UAW be brought back into the plant.

But the independent-minded workers were determined to remove the unwanted union and took the only other step available to them.

They exercised their right to request a secret-ballot election.

UAW union lawyers again cried foul, and the NLRB General Counsel again complied with their demands to block the secret-ballot vote.

Rather than let workers vote privately and let their true desire be heard, the rogue agency is colluding with union bosses to trap employees in an unwanted union.

These workers simply sought to exercise their workplace rights, and instead have fallen victim to NLRB policies that trample the rights of employees in an effort to protect union bosses from accountability from the workers they claim to "represent."

The Obama NLRB has made it a standard operating procedure to make removing an unwanted union as difficult as possible.

You may remember that earlier this year, the Obama NLRB subjected workers in Alabama to FIVE decertification elections to remove an unwanted union from their workplace.

Your Foundation stood with them every step of the way and ensured that their true voices were heard, and we will continue to fight on behalf of these South Carolina workers.

Thank you for your continued support so we are able to keep up the fight against the out-of-control Obama Labor Board and provide free legal aid to workers victimized by compulsory unionism abuses.

Sincerely,

Mark Mix

P.S. The Foundation relies completely on voluntary contributions from our supporters to provide free legal aid. Please chip in with a tax-deductible contribution of $10 or more today to support the Foundation's programs.

Big labor's stranglehold on America easing up,keep up the pressure

From The National Right To Work Committee:

Gay Congressman wants to impose gay supremacy upon the nation

From Public Advocate:

"Historic."

"Comprehensive."

That's how the pro-homosexual news media is portraying the newest Gay Bill of Special Rights.

Unless Public Advocate supporters take immediate action, it will go down in history as the end of Religious Liberty in America.

You see, homosexual Congressman David Cicilline recently introduced the most aggressive version of this bill I've ever seen.

His bill, H.R. 3185, will create special employment status for homosexuals and transsexuals.

Cicilline declared it was time to demand special rights for homosexuals - with no exceptions.

His latest version would force every business – even faith-based businesses – to comply with the radical Homosexual Agenda.

These bills are usually filed under the disguise of employee discrimination protection.

But don't let that fool you. The ramifications of this bill are dangerous and virtually never-ending.

Christian daycares could be forced to hire transsexuals.

Churches could be mandated to hire homosexual pastors or face legal threats.

This Gay Bill of Special Rights is designed to permanently end Religious Liberty.

I lose sleep at night thinking about our nation - founded on the principles of Religious Liberty - living under such a law.

Unfortunately, 165 Congressmen signed on as co-sponsors to Cicilline's Gay Bill of Special Rights the very day he filed the bill.

That's because the Gay Bill of Special Rights has been the cornerstone of the Homosexual Agenda since the 1980's.

I've always made sure Public Advocate is on the front-line battling any version of the Gay Bill of Special Rights whenever it rears its ugly head in Congress.

And we may have been successful in defeating these bills in the past.

But it's taken a tremendous effort to defend Religious Liberty from the endless assaults by the radical Homosexual Lobby since the Supreme Court ushered in homosexual "marriage."

That's why I'm counting on you to click here to sign your petition defending Religious Liberty right away.

And if you can, please chip in $10 or $25 to strengthen your Public Advocate and stop this bill from reaching Obama's desk.

I'll be sure to keep you updated about this bill.

Thank you and God Bless.

For the Family,

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

P.S. The Gay Bill of Special Rights is back and worse than before.

This time, an openly homosexual Congressman is executing the Homosexual Lobby's radical agenda on faith-based institutions such as churches, daycares and adoption agencies.

Please click here to sign your petition and chip in $10 or $25 so Public Advocate can stop the latest threat to Religious Liberty.

Put pressure on Senator Mitch McConnell to hold and up and down vote on Audit The Fed

From Campaign For Liberty:

This is show time.

My insider sources on Capitol Hill tell me the U.S. Senate could be ready to vote on my Audit the Fed bill (S.264) later this fall.

With the Federal Reserve and their slick insider pals set to launch yet another massive PR blitz to SMEAR those who want their secrecy and cronyism finally forced into the limelight, I’m not leaving ANYTHING to chance.

You see, thanks to the generosity of a very charitable Campaign for Liberty supporter, I’m formally launching a massive $200,000 nationwide Matching Grant Challenge to finally EXPOSE the Federal Reserve!

That means every dollar you can give by September 30 will be matched dollar-for-dollar!

Will you accept the Matching Grant Challenge TODAY?

The truth is, there may never be a better time for you to dig deep to help Campaign for Liberty finally audit the Federal Reserve.

And it may never be more important.

You see, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has the power to bring Audit the Fed up for a full floor vote – or bury it.

While running for re-election in 2014, he promised to allow a vote on Audit the Fed. And he’s currently a Senate cosponsor.

Now, it’s time for you and me to ensure he KEEPS his promises.

After all, you’ve seen the headlines about the economic turmoil in Greece. Debt-laden Puerto Rico is on the brink as well.

I’m afraid these are all just minor hiccups compared to what will happen here in the United States if you and I don’t finally rein in the Federal Reserve’s “print-now, ask-questions-later” policies NOW!

Today, the U.S. government’s national debt stands at $18.4 TRILLION.

Just in the past decade, it’s more than DOUBLED as Big Government members of BOTH parties have worked with the Federal Reserve in an ill-fated attempt to tax, spend, borrow, and print our way into prosperity.

It hasn’t worked. It will NEVER work.

All you and I have received in return is more debt, an economy teetering on the brink of collapse, and a new stock market bubble that’s ready to burst at any moment!

After holding short-term interest rates near zero for nearly ten years, what else can the Federal Reserve do when a new downturn hits?

I’m afraid the statists’ game plan only gets uglier from there. More bailouts. Stifling taxes. Outright CONFISCATION of bank deposits and retirement accounts.

That’s why it’s so critical we pass my Audit the Fed bill, introduced by my son Senator Rand Paul, NOW, while there’s still time.

If passed, my Audit the Fed bill would finally show the American people that the Federal Reserve System leads to:

*** Constant economic crises. The housing crisis and the 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 fuel, food, housing, medical care, and education costs soar, everyone who is NOT on the government dole is 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 our money isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on, and REFUSE to accept it.

But Big Government members of BOTH parties in Congress are going to fight you and me with everything they have.

They know the Fed is Big Government’s linchpin.

Without the Fed printing money to pay the bills when taxing and borrowing don't make ends meet, there's no way the American people would accept the federal Leviathan we live under today.

That’s why this fight is so critical. That’s why Federal Reserve apologists and their allies in Congress are going to come after you and me with everything they have.

That’s why I’m counting on YOU.

Please accept this $200,000 Matching Grant Challenge and agree to chip in a generous contribution IMMEDIATELY.

Remember, your contribution will be matched dollar-for-dollar!

For example, a $100 contribution will be worth $200. A $50 gift is worth $100! And so on and so on.

Your generous contribution will help Campaign for Liberty turn up the heat on the U.S. Senate.

I’m ready to pull out all the stops.

That means not just mail and email, it means social media, Internet ads, radio, newspaper, and even TV ads, if I can raise the resources.

The whole nine yards.

This is the only way you and I are going to be able to stand up to the Federal Reserve’s SMEAR campaign.

The good news is, if you and I can just force a vote on Audit the Fed, I’m convinced there will be no stopping us.

Nearly 80% of the American people believe the Federal Reserve should be audited.

So U.S. Senators who choose to vote “NO” will be risking their political careers.

And if you and I pass this legislation, and President Obama chooses to issue a veto, there’s no doubt the Federal Reserve will become a MAJOR issue in the 2016 presidential race.

We can’t lose – if we can just force a vote.

Capitol Hill sources tell me that could happen later this fall. So it’s time to insist Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell keeps his promise to allow a vote.

I’m ready to take a sledgehammer to the Federal Reserve – the very foundation of Big Government in Washington, D.C.

But I’m counting on you to help me.

Please agree to chip in a generous gift today.

In fact, there’s never been a better time to give.

Remember, every dollar Campaign for Liberty can raise by September 30 will be matched, dollar-for-dollar!

But time is running out.

Please agree to chip in a generous contribution TODAY and accept this $200,000 Matching Grant Challenge.

Thank you in advance for your generous support.

For Liberty,

Ron Paul
Chairman

P.S. My Capitol Hill sources tell me the U.S. Senate could be ready to vote on my Audit the Fed bill (H.R. 24/S.264) later this fall!

The Fed is set to launch an all-out SMEAR campaign to stop you and me.

That’s why I’m formally launching a massive $200,000 nationwide Matching Grant Challenge to finally EXPOSE the Federal Reserve!

Every dollar you can give today will be DOUBLED!

So please chip in a generous contribution at once!

CISPA is back only know it is known as CISA

From Fight For The Future:

CISA: the dirty deal between government and corporate giants.

It's the dirty deal that lets much of government from the NSA to local police get your private data from your favorite websites and lets them use it without due process.

The government is proposing a massive bribe—they will give corporations immunity for breaking virtually any law if they do so while providing the NSA, DHS, DEA, and local police surveillance access to everyone's data in exchange for getting away with crimes, like fraud, money laundering, or illegal wiretapping.

Specifically it incentivizes companies to automatically and simultaneously transfer your data to the DHS, NSA, FBI, and local police with all of your personally-indentifying information by giving companies legal immunity (notwithstanding any law), and on top of that, you can't use the Freedom of Information Act to find out what has been shared.

The NSA and members of Congress want to pass a "cybersecurity" bill so badly, they’re using the recent hack of the Office of Personnel Management as justification for bringing CISA back up and rushing it through. In reality, the OPM hack just shows that the government has not been a good steward of sensitive data and they need to institute real security measures to fix their problems. The truth is that CISA could not have prevented
the OPM hack, and no Senator could explain how it could have. Congress and the NSA are using irrational hysteria to turn the Internet into a place where the government has overly broad, unchecked powers.

Why Faxes?

Since 2012, online and civil liberties groups and 30,000+ sites have driven more than 2.6 million emails and hundreds of thousands of calls, tweets and more to Congress opposing overly broad cybersecurity legislation. Congress has tried to pass CISA in one form or another 4 times, and they were beat back every time by people like you. It's clear Congress is completely out of touch with modern technology, so this week, as Congress rushes toward a vote on CISA, we are going to send them thousands of faxes, a technology from the 1980s that is hopefully antiquated enough for them to understand.

Sending a fax is super easy — you can use this page to send a fax. Any tweet with the hashtag #faxbigbrother will get turned into a fax to Congress too, so what are you waiting for? Click here

North Korea is tired of fat boy's shit.

SEOUL, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- A North Korean defector said Pyongyang's Workers' Party is "imploding" due to Kim Jong Un's inconsistent policies, and grievances against the leader have soared since he fully assumed power.

The former party cadre, who spoke to Yonhap on the condition of anonymity, said Kim often finds fault with "old and senile party members," and his disparaging remarks have often placed him at odds with veteran politicians appointed by former leader Kim Jong Il. Kim has said North Korean politicians with decades of experience are ineffective workers, according to the defector.

Demoralized cadres have said that "there is no future" for North Korea since Kim came to power, and pessimism is pervasive in government, according to the defector identified as "A." The defector said the execution of Kim's uncle Jang Song Thaek was shocking for North Korea's elite, and signs of conflict have emerged since Kim replaced older bureaucrats with new appointees.

"The purge of Jang Song Thaek, Ri Yong Ho and Hyon Yong Chol did not come about only due to Kim Jong Un's 'tyrannical tendencies,'" the defector said. "Generational change and Kim's distrust of cadres, these and the party's inconsistencies all combined to lead to these incidents."

The defector said that during his term as a party cadre in the previous regime under Kim Jong Il, he like others "worked night and day...with tremendous pride," but according to his sources officials now seek to defect, skirt work responsibilities while placing self-interest before the concerns of the group.

Purges, however, have been key to the survival of the North Korean regime that began with founder Kim Il Sung. South Korean television network SBS reported North Korea's state newspaper ran a special feature Wednesday on the Workers' Party, hailing the ruling party as the "Great Mother" of the country.

SBS reported the former leader consolidated his power in 1953 by purging influential communists like Pak Hon Yong for challenging his rule and eliminating other factions.

It does look like fat boy is digging his own grave. This is big. So big it could cause a counterrevolution in North Korea.

Net Neutrality goes to court

From Open Media:

There are just 24 hours to go before the final deadline to sign a hard-hitting legal brief that could stop Big Telecom destroying a historic ban on Internet slow lanes.

We got an unbelievable response to this email we sent on Thursday, so we wanted to make sure you had a chance to join before it's too late.Sign on now. Deets below.

---

Telecom giants are trying ​to destroy a historic ban on Internet slow lanes1 by going through the courts2 –​ and a crucial deadline for us to stop them is rapidly approaching.

Under threat are the pro-Internet “Net Neutrality” rules that we won earlier this year. If Telecom giants are successful, ​they could dismantle our victory and force our favorite websites into an Internet slow lane3 – ruining the web and raising prices for you and your family in the process.

But we have a plan to fight back.

We need Internet users like you to endorse a hard-hitting legal brief that ensures the court knows just how many Americans care about the ban on slow lanes.​ Add your voice now, and help stop Big Telecom’s Internet slow lane plan before the final deadline.

We have to get as many signatures on it as possible by Sunday night, so the brief can be filed first thing Monday. That’s why your OpenMedia team is helping to amplify your voice at this crucial moment.

This is huge. Losing Net Neutrality would hurt everyone other than deep-pocketed telecom conglomerates who could afford expensive new “prioritization” fees.

That’s why a number of groups are defending our historic victory in court. They’re fighting with everything they’ve got to stop Big Telecom’s army of lawyers, but they need your help to make sure they show up in the courtroom with a critical mass behind them.

You don’t need to be a lawyer to defend one of the most historic pro-Internet victories of all time. Click here to add your name to the Net Neutrality "People's Brief" that open Internet advocates will be filing in just a few days.

We worked together for over a year to make sure we won the strongest, most enforceable rules possible (AKA: Title II).4 And by all accounts, we nailed it.5 But we can’t throw that all away now.

Our campaign partners will be filing the challenge soon, so sign on right now before the final deadline on Sunday night.

Josh, on behalf of OpenMedia

Support H.R. 525 aka the Industrial Hemp Farming Act

From Campaign For Liberty:

A new agricultural commodity appears on the verge of a breakout.

Well, actually, it’s not really “new” and all I can say is, it’s about time!

I’m speaking, of course, about industrial hemp’s recent reemergence as a viable agricultural commodity.

You see, since the war on drugs began, an innocent bystander was caught up in all the hysteria, and industrial hemp (marijuana’s botanical cousin with near-zero THC) was outlawed.

This was despite its use in the war effort during WWII, remembered today through a government film called “Hemp for Victory,” still widely available for viewing on the Internet.

During my years in Congress, I introduced multiple bills to exclude industrial hemp from the definition of “marihuana” under the Controlled Substances Act.

Unfortunately, while I was able to get bipartisan support for this legislation, it never went very far while I was there.

But now, prevailing attitudes toward hemp are beginning to change across America, and that is (at times, very) slowly changing the opinions of politicians in Washington.

That’s why I’m glad my good friend, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY-4) has again reintroduced my old legislation, the Industrial Hemp Farming Act, as H.R. 525.

In 2013, Rep. Massie teamed up with Rep. Jared Polis and, along with some help from allies on the issue in the Senate, they were able to include an amendment to the Farm Bill allowing for “research” projects to be conducted on industrial hemp.

I’m happy to tell you that despite delays, and initially, harassment from the DEA, Kentucky’s pilot programs with industrial hemp were quite successful in 2014.

In fact, the programs were so successful that at a news conference this spring, Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner James Comer announced it will expand from the 33 acres planted in 2014 to 1,742 acres across Kentucky in 2015!

The momentum behind industrial hemp’s research programs in Kentucky has attracted millions of dollars in capital investment.

"With their investment, jobs have been created, jobs are going to be created, and they've signed contracts with family farmers," Comer said. "Hemp equals jobs and true economic growth, which is what we predicted when we launched Senate Bill 50 two years ago."

Kentucky’s Senate Bill 50 allowed farmers in the state to cultivate industrial hemp -- IF the federal government creates a legal framework for them to operate under.

That’s why I hope you’ll agree passing H.R. 525 this Congress has never been more important.

Not just for Kentucky, but to allow farmers all across the country who are capable, to begin experimenting and planting this viable cash crop!

Hemp is such a versatile plant, we may not even understand its full economic potential in this day and age.

It’s a shame America’s entrepreneurs have been limited in their ability to profit and experiment with hemp because of misguided policies put in place during our country’s ill-fated attempt to outlaw plants.

Unfortunately, too many drug warriors on Capitol Hill are still afraid to voice their support for H.R. 525.

They’re afraid if they vote to remove hemp from the list of controlled substances, they’ll be seen as “going soft” on crime.

To counter this misconception, Rep. Massie has taken to telling people, “Industrial hemp: think rope, not dope.”

I can hardly think of a more concise message to tell Congress.

That’s why it’s vital you take action today in support of H.R. 525 by signing your “Think Rope, Not Dope” petition today!

My goal is to bury Congress in these petitions, explaining briefly, and clearly, that industrial hemp is not marijuana.

As I said repeatedly on the campaign trail throughout 2011 and 2012, you’d have to smoke a joint the size of a telephone poll to get “high” from hemp.

And even then, you’d probably just get lightheaded from the lack of oxygen . . . rather than feel any impact from the trace amounts of THC in the plant.

Now I know many of you wonder if signing a petition actually does anything . . .

Let me tell you, your signed petitions absolutely have an impact on how your Congressman looks at an issue.

>>> First, it tells them there are angry people in their district. Though it’s always a sure bet more constituents share those feelings than signed a petition; and

>>> Second, it conveniently tells them what they are angry about. Phone calls over time are very important, but unless you have diligent front office staff, sometimes the purpose of your call might get lost in the mix and the politician never hears about it; and

>>> Third, it concludes by telling them the action they need to take so their constituents aren’t angry anymore (at least about that issue).

That’s why I’m counting on you to sign your “Think Rope, Not Dope” petition today!

It’s about time Congress begin to legalize freedom again in this country, and I’m glad we have friends like Rep. Thomas Massie up there to introduce important legislation like this.

But you and I need to provide the outside support necessary to make sure this effort is successful in the 114th Congress.

Can I count on you to sign your “Think Rope, Not Dope” petition today and then make a generous contribution to Campaign for Liberty today?

Your petition will be delivered to your representative either way, but Campaign for Liberty relies solely on the voluntary contributions of our generous supporters to operate.

Every day, my staff is working hard, tracking legislation, working the phones, email, delivering petitions, and representing you and three quarters of a million C4L Members across the country on Capitol Hill.

Unfortunately even modern technology hasn’t made the tools of our trade free, and every aspect of a program like this costs money -- even this email you’re reading now.

And the bigger we get, the more every aspect of the operation costs.

The good news is, passing H.R. 525 may eventually lead to cheaper paper production, as using hemp to create paper is much more efficient than trees.

That would mean the cost of printing your petitions we deliver to your representative would go down, saving Campaign for Liberty money in the long run.

So if you think about it, chipping in $10 to Campaign for Liberty today will have a much bigger economic impact in the long run than you might realize.

I’m confident that with your support, we can deliver a huge victory for hemp this Congress.

For Liberty,
Ron Paul
Chairman

P.S. My good friend, Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY-4) has reintroduced H.R. 525. Currently the bill has 60 bipartisan cosponsors, but with your support, I’m sure we can not only get more, but pass this legislation.

Sadly, misguided drug warriors continue to spread propaganda against this versatile and viable cash crop.

That’s why it’s vital you sign your “Think Rope, Not Dope” petition today and chip in $10 to help C4L pass H.R. 525.

Support the Fair and Flat Tax bill

From Rand Paul 2016:

Elections are about contrasts.

While I am in this race to tear down the big government status quo by blowing up our tax code, the Republican establishment's hand-picked candidate believes in tip-toeing around the mess Barack Obama created.

You can't defeat the Washington Machine by tearing out a couple of pages of our over 70,000 page tax code.

You need to drive a stake through the heart of the IRS.

Will you stand with me in the fight to kick the IRS out of your life for good by adding your name to the "Fair and Flat Tax Now!" petition?

I've proposed the biggest and boldest tax cut in American history.

My 14.5% Fair and Flat Tax puts Washington on a diet and puts over $2 trillion back in Americans' pockets.

The establishment candidate's proposed plan contains a top rate of 28% and cements multiple tax brackets where my plan has only one low rate of 14.5%.

My plan ends corporate welfare by eliminating the giveaways in the tax code the well-connected use to game the system.

His plan allows the Washington Machine's pals to nest their corporate welfare in our tax code.

The Fair and Flat Tax I've proposed eliminates the workers' tax.

It goes to ZERO.

My establishment opponent's plan keeps FICA -- the largest tax many Americans pay -- in place.

Our party can't skirt around the edges of the status quo.

This is our best chance in a generation to deliver true conservative change to America.

The American people are searching for a candidate with bold proposals to take our country back.

Kicking the IRS out of the lives of everyday Americans is step one in defeating the Washington Machine.

My campaign has prepared a special video explaining how my Fair and Flat Tax plan will restore the American dream.

I hope you'll take a few moments to watch it and complete your "Fair and Flat Tax Now!" petition.

After you add your name, please chip in a contribution of $20.16 so my campaign can get this video in front of as many voters in the key early caucus and primary states as possible.

In Liberty,

Rand Paul

Support the First Amendment Defense Act

From Public Advocate:

News just broke today that Kim Davis will be released from jail.

You see, while many enjoyed the final days of summer this past Labor Day weekend, Public Advocate staff and volunteers traveled to Kentucky and organized rallies for Kim Davis and Religious Liberty.

Armed with signs, petitions, and water for Kim Davis' supporters, Public Advocate took to the street in front of the detention center.

But the judge ordered, "Davis shall not interfere in any way, directly or indirectly, with the efforts of her deputy clerks to issue marriage license to all legally eligible couples."

This is not the end of this story. The judge threatened Davis with "appropriate sanctions" if she disobeys this order.

While her freedom is certainly worth celebrating, the precedent has now been set.

Who will be the next targeted victim of the anti-Christian Left?

Who will be the "Kim Davis" sentenced to jail for the crime of being a Christian?

Tell Congress, "No more Kim Davis jailings, pass the First Amendment Defense Act now," with a generous donation of $5 or $10 right away.

For years I have warned there will come a day when radical homosexual judges and their allies in the Homosexual Lobby will jail Christians who profess their faith, and now the day has arrived.

This is the fight Public Advocate has waged for years and continues to fight daily.

Congress must act now to protect Religious Liberty.

Over 140 Congressmen are co-sponsoring Raul Labrador’s First Amendment Defense Act in the House and over 36 Senators are co-sponsoring the Senate version.

But House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy are stalling to bring the bill up for a vote.

How many more Christians facing prosecution will it take to break the stranglehold of the radical Homosexual Lobby’s power over Congress?

Exercising Religious Liberty is not a crime.

So please, click here to sign your petition and help Public Advocate be the voice of thousands of pro-Family Americans by prayerfully considering a generous donation of $5 or $10 right away.

For the Family,

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

P.S. Public Advocate staff and volunteers rallied this weekend in Kentucky in support of Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis. After spending five days in a jail cell for defending Real Marriage, Davis was finally released.

But the radical Homosexual Lobby is already prepared to pounce on their next victim.

Tell Congress, "No more Kim Davis jailings" by making a generous contribution of $5 or $10 in support of the First Amendment Defense Act right away.
