End union violence

From The National Right To Work Committee:

Armed with phony protest signs attached to baseball bats along with other "concealed" makeshift weapons, more than 500 International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) militants stormed the port in Longview, Washington.

Slashing tires, breaking windows, cutting the brake lines of fully loaded railway cars, dumping shipments of grain into the dirt, the ILWU mob slowly made their way to a group of six port security guards determined to stop their march.

Outnumbered, the guards were quickly forced to retreat into their guard shack where they were held hostage until the police were finally able to restore order.

If any other common criminals were to destroy property and hold people hostage, they would be put behind bars where they belong.

Yet, not one of these union thugs was arrested!

But the shocking thing is: Stories like this one, even though they don’t make national news, are repeated again and again.

That’s why I hope you will immediately sign the petition I've created to your U.S. Senators and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

I'll give you the link below, but first I want you to know how important it is you join this fight today.

You see, you and I have an opportunity to ultimately put an end to this kind of union violence.

The fact is, for nearly 40 years union bosses and their enforcers have committed thousands of reported incidents of violence, extortion, vandalism and even murder -- and untold thousands more that go unreported.

And in virtually every case, these vicious acts of violence and intimidation have gone unpunished.

That’s because of the Supreme Court’s infamous 1973 Enmons decision which granted union bosses immunity from prosecution under federal law for acts of violence and vandalism orchestrated in the so-called "pursuit of legitimate union objectives."

This outrageous loophole in federal law has effectively tied the hands of law enforcement and has permitted union bosses and their handpicked "enforcers" to use any means necessary to achieve their often violent goals.

It is no secret that union bosses are all too happy to use violence and terror to achieve their number one goal: Corral more working men and women into forced-dues-paying ranks.

So will you sign this petition to your U.S. Senators and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in favor of the Freedom from Union Violence Act (S. 62)?

In the Longview case, at least no one was shot.

Unfortunately, John King, the owner of a mid-size Toledo electrical contracting business, wasn’t so lucky when he was shot by a union thug in the dead of night.

You see, Mr. King’s business had been a regular target for a union boss takeover by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).

They nearly succeeded, that is until the U.S. Court of Appeals overturned the IBEW’s certification after it was shown that the union bosses lied to King’s employees, promising them electrician jobs on union sites if they voted the union into his company.

At that point, the IBEW’s "corporate campaign" of harassment, vandalism and death threats returned with a vengeance.

King, along with his employees, was the regular target of union militants who would routinely slash the tires of their cars and throw rocks through the company’s windows.

As King put it: "It was nothing to have to regularly buy a new set of tires . . . the ice pick was the weapon of choice."

Then things turned uglier when the IBEW militants turned their attention not to King’s company, but this time to his home.

Late one night while getting ready for bed, King noticed the motion lights turn on in his driveway.

When he went out to investigate, he was confronted by a union thug who had just finished spray painting the word "SCAB" across King’s SUV and was set to puncture his tires.

When King yelled, the man didn’t say a word. Instead he stood up, and without hesitation pulled out a gun and shot King.

Fortunately, Mr. King lived. Others have not been so lucky.

That’s why I hope you will join our effort to make sure union bosses are held accountable for the acts of violence they commit.

But to do this, your help is crucial.

The fact is, union violence reflects Big Labor’s coercive approach to organizing. Instead of relying on persuasion, union officials have routinely resorted to threats and compulsion to add to their dues-paying ranks.

Richard Trumka, the AFL-CIO’s president, is a case in point.

When asked about union violence, Mr. Trumka coldly replied: "I’m saying if you strike a match and put your finger in it, you’re likely to get burned."

You see, Big Labor bosses think a chunk of every workers’ paycheck is rightfully theirs -- and history proves they’ll do almost anything to get it.

That’s why the Freedom from Union Violence Act (S. 62) should be a top priority in Congress.

And I hope you'll sign this petition right away insisting your U.S. Senators and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell take this issue seriously.

With your help, your Committee plans to . . .

***Mobilize hundreds of thousands of Americans, through mail, email and by phone, to put pressure on their Senators to cosponsor and seek roll-call votes on the Freedom from Union Violence Act.

***Run hard-hitting internet, radio, T.V. and newspaper ads, which we plan to run in the home states of swing Senators -- calling on them by name to support the Freedom from Union Violence Act.

***Personally brief hundreds of influential nationally syndicated columnists, editorial writers and talk show hosts to shine a spotlight on the outrage of union violence and build pressure on Congress to hold a vote.

***Hold accountable any politician who votes against the Freedom from Union Violence Act -- not just at the time of the vote but all the way to their next election.

So, as a first step, I hope you will sign this petition to your U.S. Senators and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Next, I hope I can count on you to chip in $10 or $20 to help the National Right to Work Committee pay for and, just as importantly, expand this critical program.

Your action today will go a long way in pushing Congress to take a stand and put an end to this outrage.

And then, in next year’s Election, voters across the country will know which of their politicians acted to end union violence and which of them still have blood on their hands.

So, please, sign this petition today.

And, if at all possible, chip in $10 or $20 to the National Right to Work Committee, so we can mobilize the grassroots army needed to finally close this Big Labor loophole of violence.

With your help, we’ll ultimately end Big Labor’s government- sanctioned reign of terror once and for all.


Mark Mix

P.S. Today we have the opportunity to finally close the loophole in federal law and bring union bosses under the same laws that protect us from other brutal thugs and criminals.

So, please, sign this petition demanding your U.S. Senators and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell cosponsor and seek roll-call votes on the Freedom from Union Violence Act (S. 62).

And, if at all possible, chip in $10, $20 or whatever you can afford to the National Right to Work Committee today.

Rand Paul addresses Obama-Boehner budget deal

From Rand Paul 2016:


That's the message the recent "debt deal" struck by President Obama and outgoing House Speaker John Boehner is designed to send anyone who's alarmed about our nation's $18.4 TRILLION in debt.

Unless you and I can stop this insanity, this "deal" is effectively nothing more than handing big spenders in Congress a blank check to do their worst until we ring in 2017!

Is this the "fiscal conservatism" the American people voted for at the ballot box in 2014? The new ability for members of BOTH parties to keep spending like no tomorrow?

Of course not!

With your help, this is the madness I'm going to rip to shreds during tomorrow night's Republican Debate in Boulder, Colorado.

But I'm counting on your help to bust through the media blackout. Will you please agree to your most generous gift of $20.16 or more right away?

Sadly Republicans betraying their supporters is nothing new. It's a big reason our country is in the mess it's in. It's a big reason for the public outrage we've seen playing out in the polls.

And that anger is 100% deserved.

Our country is in too big of a mess to allow the status quo to continue any longer.

Our party can't afford a "whoops" moment where we nominate a candidate who will either lose at the ballot box or continue politics as usual if elected.

Either of those scenarios would be a complete and total failure for our nation and future generations who are counting on us to protect the freedom and prosperity that should be their birthright as American citizens.

That's why I'm counting on your support to help me bust through the media blackout.

Both the media and the political establishment know I'm the Washington Machine's worst nightmare.

While my opponents love to preen for TV and stroke their own ego, I could care less.

This isn't a TV reality show. It's not a contest to see who has the most Wall Street fat-cats, or party bigwigs backing their campaigns.

Our country needs results. It needs leaders who are willing to fight.

Not the constant stream of failures we're so used to. Not liberal appeasement.

Not the "deals" where BOTH parties in Congress agree to look the other way while their colleagues dole out our taxpayer dollars to their partisan cronies.

Our country needs tried and true limited government reforms designed to restore our constitutional freedoms.

Whether it's spending, spying or President Obama's misguided march to war in Syria, I've proven I'll stand to up members of EITHER party.

My plans to institute a 14.5% flat tax, Audit the Fed, end government spying, repeal ObamaCare, impose term limits on Congress, force Congress to read the bills, and balance the budget would revolutionize Washington, D.C.

But I can't do it alone. I'm counting on you to launch the revolution.

Will you please agree to you a generous gift of $20.16 ahead of tomorrow night's debate? Click Here

Your support can help me bust through the media blackout and bring my message straight to the American people.

In Liberty,

Rand Paul

Cut up Congress' credit card

From Campaign For Liberty:

I'm not going to beat around the bush.

I'm counting on your IMMEDIATE action to help turn up the heat on Congress to stop America's soaring national debt.

Not thirty years from now. Not twenty. Not ten.

But NOW.

You see, outgoing speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have cut a dirty "deal" with President Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid to increase domestic and defense spending by $80 billion dollars!

On top of that, this deal "suspends" the debt limit until March 2017, gifting the Big Spenders in DC an unlimited increase to Congress' credit card through the 2016 election.

And what's worse, Boehner's doing this for his heir apparent, Paul Ryan, who's desperately hoping this deal passes.

"I didn't want [Paul Ryan] to walk into a dirty barn of you know what," Boehner quipped. "I've done my best to try to clean it up."

A "clean up" requiring a spending increase of nearly $100 billion and a suspension of the debt limit represents everything wrong with Washington, D.C.

While Paul Ryan has publically claimed he had nothing to do with this deal, at least one member of Congress has suggested Ryan was in cahoots with leadership!

If you and I don't turn up the heat on your representative and senators right now, I'm afraid the Obama-Ryan-Boehner regime will get the last laugh.

And with the vote on this massive spending increase scheduled in the House for tomorrow, its critical you act right away.

The good news is DC-based press are reporting that House leadership might not have the votes to pass it.

Meaning if you and I really put pressure on the House we could kill this dirty deal once and for all.

So please sign your "Cut Congress' Credit Card" Fax Petition IMMEDIATELY!

As you'll see, your petition urges your representative and senators to REJECT Congress' dirty deal with President Obama and work to balance the federal budget immediately.

. . . Not to make half-hearted promises of future cuts or fiscal responsibility . . .

. . . Not promote a plan based on another smoky backroom deal.

I mean cutting up our federal government's credit cards and finally forcing Congress to live within its means.

That's why it's vital you sign your "Cut Congress' Credit Card" Fax Petition right away!

The same people expected to vote for this MASSIVE increase in spending are the same hacks voting for Paul Ryan as Speaker.

If you and I don't send a clear message to Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and their lackeys to restore fiscal sanity, you and I can expect the same old routine through 2017.

In 2015, our federal government brought in record revenue. $3.2 TRILLION in fact.

$3.2 TRILLION was $300 billion more than the amount of our entire federal budget as recently as 2008!

Returning to 2008's spending levels would hardly be a radical change.

But it would force President Obama and members of Congress to end the spending spree that has left our country nearly $19 TRILLION in debt.

So please sign your "Cut Congress' Credit Card" Fax Petition IMMEDIATELY!

Hardworking families all across the country understand they have to live within their means.

They understand allowing credit card debt to build up month after month is a recipe for disaster.

It's NO different for our federal government.

I know President Obama, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan and the big spenders in Congress will tell you they can't be forced to live within their means.

They'll tell you not a dime of federal spending can be cut.

"The cupboard is bare!" as Nancy Pelosi famously exclaimed.

But just in the past year, you and I have learned:

*** $380,000 thousand to study the "freshman 15";

*** $100,000 for a flower show in Philadelphia;

*** $350,000 to study athletes in the zone;

*** $50,000 for the jazz group Soul Rebels to travel to Istanbul, Turkey for a jazz festival;

*** The Veteran's Administration spent $8 million on solar panels that were never turned on;

*** $350,000 for an Afghanistan cricket league;

*** $104 million for low-income housing subsidies on people who do not qualify as low income;

I could go on and on.

If we don't start cutting out this waste, what kind of future will we be leaving to our kids and grandkids?

One saddled with debt? Void of the freedom and opportunity that should be their birthright as American citizens?

All Congress has to do to finally balance our federal budget is . . .


If your representative and senators just don't vote to suspend the debt limit, Congress can only spend what it takes in.

Will you help Campaign for Liberty turn up the heat on Congress to stop them from suspending the debt limit and increasing spending RIGHT NOW ?

I'm counting on you. After all, you and I are going up against the Obama administration's propaganda machine.

In 2013, the Obama administration resorted to throwing up barricades to prevent our heroic World War II veterans from visiting a memorial built to honor their blood and sacrifice!

And after that, President Obama sent seven security guards to the World War II memorial to keep our veterans out - two more than were present in Benghazi.

They're going to use the same kind of shenanigans again to try to trick the American people into thinking the world will collapse if even a single cent of federal spending is cut.

And they will no doubt be assisted by Boehner, Ryan, and other so-called "conservatives" who are eager to cut a deal putting spending on autopilot for two years.

But your help can make sure it won't work.

So won't you please sign your "Cut Congress' Credit Card" Fax Petition right away to cut up government's credit card?

And if you can,please agree to your most generous contribution of $40 at once!
Every dollar you give will help Campaign for Liberty reach more Americans about this critical fight.

Of course, if $40 is too much, please agree to $20 or at least $10 at once.

But your action today is critical because, the truth is, the big spenders in Congress - sadly many in BOTH parties - don't want to be forced to cut spending.

They'll resort to virtually anything to keep spending like there's no tomorrow.
Cutting up Congress' credit cards only means a balanced budget.

Not a government shutdown. Not a federal default on our debt. Not Social Security and Medicare being cut off. Not missed paychecks for our men and women in uniform .

Our government can still keep spending $3.2 TRILLION a year.

Seven years ago, it would have been more than enough to pay for the entire federal budget.

Those were hardly lean times for government by any means.

$3.2 TRILLION is enough "revenue" for Washington, D.C.

And $19 TRILLION is more than enough debt for you and me.

If you agree, please sign your "Cut Congress' Credit Cards" Fax Petition immediately.

And, if you can, please make your most generous contribution of $40 , $20 , or at least $10 TODAY!

In Liberty,

Ron Paul

P.S. Won't you please sign your "Cut Congress' Credit Cards" Fax Petition I've made up for you IMMEDIATELY?

Click here to add your name.

As you'll see, your petition urges your representative and senators to REJECT Congress' dirty deal with President Obama and work to balance our federal budget immediately.

If Congress doesn't increase the debt limit, it will simply force Congress to live within its means.

But since you and I are going up against the Obama administration's propaganda machine, I must ask for your most generous contribution of $40 , $20 or at least $10 IMMEDIATELY.

Don't give Obama a blank check

From Freedom Works:

In 2011, you won. You forced Obama to accept the budget caps, the only thing reining in his out of control spending. And Boehner is going to give them up, with absolutely nothing in return. He's working to ram this Obama-Boehner budget through Congress. And he must be stopped. Call the phone number below to be automatically connected to your representative and tell them to oppose the Obama-Boehner budget:


This is a two year deal that virtually eliminates the debt ceiling until March of 2017. Ray, Boehner is giving Obama a blank check to spend as he pleases for the rest of his term. If you thought the deficit was bad before, just wait until this budget is passed. We've got to stop them. That's why it's crucial that you call your representative at 202-796-9925, and demand that they oppose the Obama-Boehner budget.

Let's show Boehner how freedom works, one last time.

The vote for Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House is coming down to the wire

From Public Advocate:

Eugene wanted me to update you on the Speaker's race today.

He needs you to call 202-224-3121 right away and urge your Congressman to vote against Paul Ryan's bid for Speaker.

The pro-Homosexual Lobby Congressman is dangerously close to winning his bid for House Speaker.

That's why it's important you call your House Representative right away via the switchboard at 202-224-3121 and urge them to publicly oppose Paul Ryan.

The Polls show Rand Paul is leading

From Rand Paul 2016:

I am taking a quick break from the road in Texas to give you some breaking news on recent critical polling and to update you on our VERY successful trip to Iowa.

You won't hear this story anywhere else. The media wants to write this story differently.

So I am coming straight to you!

There are less than 100 days until the Iowa Caucuses. Can you believe that?

It is almost time for people to vote and show everyone that pollsters and the media got the story wrong all summer.

Our campaign is starting to feel the momentum on the ground. Recently, I toured several colleges and saw overflow crowds of young people who are invigorated to show up at the Iowa Caucuses.

They want to cut up the Obama credit card that is mortgaging their future and put forward pro-growth policies that will give them the jobs and opportunities they need to succeed.

They have liberal friends who are supporting Bernie Sanders and can't believe that an avowed socialist is near the top of the Democrat contest. They recognize that President Bernie Sanders would make President Barack Obama look like a fiscal conservative.

They know that in the real world, socialism fails and freedom works. The answer to fix Obama's failed policies is not to dive farther left off the cliff into socialism. The answer is to support a candidate who will hold the Constitution in one hand and the Bill of Rights in another.

And the momentum that we are feeling on the ground in Iowa is starting to show up in the polls, in the early states and nationally.

We are gaining ground in Iowa and, in fact, passed Jeb Bush and Carly Fiorina.

We are gaining ground nationally according to CNN and Monmouth polls.

The media wants you to believe that the race is over. They want you to believe that Donald Trump is already the nominee. Nothing could be further from the truth. At this time in 2008 Rudy Giuliani was leading. At this time in 2012 Herman Cain was leading.

Now is our chance for a comeback to capitalize on this momentum and show that liberty is alive and well in America.

I am convinced our campaign has momentum.

I know I have the support of the next generation.

Now I am asking you to step up and help us by making a contribution of whatever you can afford to defend liberty across this great country.

With your help, we will capitalize on our momentum and ultimately win the nomination.


Rand Paul

PS: Thank you so much for your support. There are less than 100 days left until Iowa and this is our opportunity to surge.

The media is blacking out the Rand Paul campaign. I believe the establishment is scared. They've got Ted Cruz to worry about. Cruz is another fine candidate who is just as Libertarian and he has done a lot of good for the country. The establishment candidates,Jeb Bush and Chris Christie are struggling for approval points. I would love it if Christie dropped out of the race. I'm sure a lot of people would,especially those who hate the drug war and don't want to see it revamped,this time only meaner.

CISA is coming down to the wire

From Free Press:

The Senate is voting on the privacy-invading bill CISA today — and it's going to pass unless we make a lot of noise today.

We need to kill this bill before it’s too late. Pick up the phone and tell your senators to protect your online privacy.

I've got bad news — CISA is back.

Supporters claim that CISA is a cybersecurity bill, but in reality it's a cyber-surveillance bill. The bill encourages companies to monitor users and share our personal data with the government, under the guise of spotting vaguely-defined "threat indicators." In exchange, companies receive legal immunity from existing anti-surveillance laws, eliminating user privacy safeguards.

CISA will do absolutely nothing to protect us from cybersecurity threats. Security experts say that the bulk data sharing CISA allows actually makes it harder to identify real threats by decreasing the signal-to-noise ratio.

Cybersecurity is important, but this is not security. Instead, this is a dangerous surveillance bill that allows companies and federal agencies to freely share massive amounts of our personal data — without consequences.

Tell Congress: We're not buying the CISA charade.

Thanks for all that you do—

Comcast attacks Net Neutrality

From Demand Progress:

A few weeks ago, we started noticing something strange.

All around the country, opinion columns written by so-called experts started appearing in major newspapers—all attacking Net Neutrality.1

They repeated the same phony arguments that Comcast makes: They say Net Neutrality isn't legal. They say it's antiquated and out of date. They say it'll hurt the economy.

But then it became clear: This was no coincidence. This is a coordinated public relations backlash funded and organized by the telecommunications lobby.

We can’t let these dishonest claims stand. Will you chip in to help counter these attacks on Net Neutrality in the media?

Yes, I'll chip in to help defend Net Neutrality.

The FCC's historic rule made Net Neutrality the law of the land. It took years of organizing and millions of people speaking out, but we won.

But Comcast is still fighting to stop Net Neutrality—because they know this fight is far from over.

First, the telecommunications industry hit the FCC with an avalanche of lawsuits to overturn Net Neutrality.2 Then they asked their friends in Congress to use must-pass legislation to fund the federal government to gut Net Neutrality.3 And finally, they started lining up presidential candidates like Jeb Bush to pledge to overturn Net Neutrality if elected.4

If we want to stop Comcast from destroying the free and open Internet by creating an Internet slow lane, we need to fight back with real grassroots voices speaking out in favor of Net Neutrality. Will you chip in?

Yes, I'll chip in to help defend Net Neutrality.

Thanks for standing with us.

Volunteer to make Rand Paul the next President

From Rand Paul 2016:

Today marks 100 days until the Iowa caucuses, and to celebrate, we are launching a massive grassroots push nationwide.

We need your help!

Every day for the next 10 days, Team Rand is organizing door-knocking and phone-banking in all 50 states.

That's why it's important that WE spread our positive message of liberty, freedom, and prosperity across the nation.

Can we count on you to join this massive effort? Visit our website to RSVP for the #100DaysToVictory Initiative.

Rand's plan for America includes:
•A 14.5% Fair and Flat Tax that eliminates corporate welfare;

•Term limits to get rid of the career politicians;
•Requiring Congress to Read the Bills before voting on them;
•Making Congress live by the laws they pass;
•Following Ronald Reagan's doctrine of "peace through strength," which ensures that America has a military that is second to none, but does not use it for unnecessary foreign intervention.

Trust and Verify

From Freedom Works:

That's what Ronald Reagan said about negotiating with the Soviets and that's how the House Freedom Caucus negotiated with Paul Ryan.

It has been a busy couple of weeks. Patriots like you have worked overtime to fire John Boehner and prevent Kevin McCarthy, Boehner's right-hand-man, from rising to Speaker of the House.

This would not have happened without your vigilance. From January to September, our community took more than 200,000 actions to oust Boehner and over 11,000 in only 48 hours to keep McCarthy out of the job. It is a remarkable achievement and stands as a testament to the power that can be wielded by those of us who are armed only with our commitment to the principles we hold dear and our resolve to protect the America that we know and love.

It shouldn't be surprising that I've spent an incredible amount of time on the phone and in meetings trying to convince multiple conservative members to toss their hat in the ring and run to be Speaker. But, as you know, Paul Ryan emerged as a candidate. And after a meeting with the House Freedom Caucus, it looks as though he will be the next person to hold the gavel.

Without question, there is frustration emanating from conservatives across the country.

But ultimately this fight was about process, not about personalities.

The main goals of the House Freedom Caucus were:

•A return to regular order by allowing an open amendment process, passing appropriations bills, and ending Republican leadership's tendency to govern by crisis through constant Continuing Resolutions and debt ceiling debates that only serve to strengthen Obama's hand.

•To stop punishing conservative members by stalling their bills, stripping them from committees, and running outside campaigns to defeat them.

•To finally stand up to Obama, who, because of Republican leadership's inability to show any real courage, is fast becoming the most powerful lame duck president in history.

And they trust that Ryan will be a step towards these goals, but they haven't given up their tools to verify and remove Ryan if he turns out to be a clone of Boehner.

Just a few years ago, I could count the number of allies in the House on one hand. Today, we have over 40.

Our challenge is to support this group of freedom fighters and expand their ranks. It is not only a worthwhile cause but also an absolute necessity. They need reinforcements if we want to see more victories that humble the Washington establishment.

Only then will we truly be able to set the agenda.

UN climate court

Negotiators at the UN climate talks in Bonn, Germany resurrected the “International Tribunal of Climate Justice” and inserted it into the text they are preparing for nations to agree to at the big UN summit in Paris in December.

The draft text will allow developing nations to sit in judgment over the U.S. and its allies, but not subject those nations to the tribunal’s jurisdiction themselves.

From the October 20th UN draft text (full text available at

“[An International Tribunal of Climate Justice as][A] [compliance mechanism] is hereby established to address cases of non-compliance of the commitments of developed country Parties on mitigation, adaptation, [provision of] finance, technology development and transfer [and][,] capacity-building[,] and transparency of action and support, including through the development of an indicative list of consequences, taking into account the cause, type, degree and frequency of non-compliance.”

Over 130 developing nations led by South Africa and instigated by China and India are insisting that they will not sign a climate agreement in Paris unless it contains massive redistribution of wealth from developed to poor nations. Now they want the power to haul the U.S. and its allies before a UN Star Chamber to enforce compliance.

This is not the first time that a climate court has appeared in a UN COP 21 Logoclimate text. In 2011 a nearly identical provision crept into the text at the UN’s climate summit in Durban. The provision was stripped from the text after CFACT’s Climate Depot blew the whistle and Marc Morano’s exclusive was picked up by the media. This time they substitute the word “tribunal” for “court” and insist that the body will be “non-judicial.”

The slight edit to the terminology offers little comfort.

If the climate tribunal becomes the focus of public scrutiny, watch for the negotiators to pull a switch behind closed doors and try and accomplish the same thing by re-branding it an enforcement “mechanism.”

Whatever they call it, countries who sign onto this agreement will be voting to expand the reach of the UN climate bureaucracy, cede national sovereignty, and create a one-way street along which billions will be redistributed from developed to poor nations. Developed nations would be expected to slash their emissions while the “poor” countries expand theirs. China, which holds a trillion dollars in U.S. debt, would be counted among the poor.

China and India are delighted. They would like nothing better than a world where the West cedes the competitive advantages their free market economies created. They hope for a future where Asia does the manufacturing and the U.S. and Europe do the importing — until their wealth runs out, anyway.

Take a look at the UN draft agreements for yourself. We’ll update them as things develop.

President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry are mired in foreign policy failures. They desperately want to get this agreement signed so they can claim a victory for their legacies.

How far are they willing to sell out American interests to get this ill-begotten agreement signed?


I am sick of the UN and all their bullshit. Just get us out of the UN,cut off funding and be rid of the UN once and for all. Let your Representative and Senators know that you hate the UN and to get us out of it. The more of us they hear from the better.

Fun with Bernie Sanders

If you don't use the drive thru you'll be asking:

Bernie Sanders will change America. Have you always wanted to be a government employee? If you said yes then vote for Bernie Sanders. He can transform this country even further than Obama because Sanders is a good comrade. He will collectivize all the businesses under government control. That means if you work at McDonald's,Burger King or other currently private businesses under Bernie you will be working at State Fast Food Restaurant #118 or something like that or maybe the People's Democratic Fast Food Restaurant #118.

Don't let a liberal Democrat replace Trey Gowdy

From Patriots For Economic Freedom:

The Truth About Clinton Operative Sidney Blumenthal Is Coming Out! Sidney Blumenthal Had Business Interests In Libya During The Time He Filled Hillary's Inbox With False Intelligence Reports! There Is Little Doubt That They Conspired To Cover Up Benghazi!

Clinton operative Sidney Blumenthal is no stranger to controversy. In the 1990s, Blumenthal was forced to testify during Bill Clinton's impeachment hearings regarding the Monica Lewinsky scandal. The Clinton's are close with Sindney and have known each other since Bill was Governor of Arkansas.

During the time of the Benghazi attacks, Sidney Blumenthal had significant business interests in Libya. He was making money off of rebuilding Libya and it is clear that he profited heavily from the Libyan civil war. Sidney Blumenthal had a clear financial motive to allow the Benghazi attacks to happen! The American people deserve to know the truth and Hillary Clinton must be held accountable! Will you help Trey Gowdy expose Hillary Clinton? Please contribute $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000, or more, to support Trey Gowdy with voter outreach and advertising!

There is no legitimate reason for Sidney Blumenthal to e-mail Hillary Clinton information about Libyan intelligence. Sidney Blumenthal did not work for the State Department and had no connection to American national security! The fact that Hillary felt the need to hide the e-mails on her personal server says a lot about her intentions. Sidney Blumenthal's business interests and his e-mails to Hillary raise a lot of red flags!

The left is still trying to discredit Trey Gowdy's investigation even as more information comes out. Media elites are claiming that Trey Gowdy's investigation is purely partisan. In fact, Democrats in Congress are even attacking Trey Gowdy's character! The left has absolutely no shame and will say anything to smear Trey Gowdy! Conservatives must fight back! Please contribute $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000, or more, to support Trey Gowdy with voter outreach and advertising!

The left wants to defeat Trey Gowdy. Clinton operatives are working to remove Trey Gowdy from Congress because they view him as a threat. The leftist attacks against Trey Gowdy are vicious and getting worse every week! Conservatives everywhere must defend Trey Gowdy's House Seat! Will you help re-elect Trey Gowdy?

Don't let Paul Ryan become Speaker of the House

From Public Advocate:

The pro-homosexual media is attacking me.

That's because Public Advocate's emergency grassroots program against Paul Ryan's bid for Speaker has gone viral!

But I still need every last Public Advocate supporter to call 202-224-3121 again and urge their Congressman to vote against Paul Ryan's bid for Speaker.

Even if you've already called, I need you to call again until your Congressman goes on the record against Ryan.

You see, I predicted two weeks ago the radical Homosexual Lobby would love for Paul Ryan to become Speaker.

His past support and his vote to pass the Gay Bill of Special Rights (H.R. 3685) makes him the perfect "Trojan Horse" to pass their radical homosexual agenda.

Which is why I desperately need you to call 202-224-3121 again and urge your Congressman to vote against Paul Ryan's bid for Speaker.

Public Advocate has caught the ire of the pro-homosexual media.

In fact, they're falsely accusing me of questioning Paul Ryan's marriage.

But that's nothing compared to the vile messages I've received from both homosexual activists and so-called "conservatives" in D.C.

They think they can bully and ridicule me into submission.

You and I both know they are wrong.

For over 34 years, I've had a target on my back as President of Public Advocate.

And not once have I caved to their tactics.

I hope you can do me a favor and call 202-224-3121 again and urge your Congressman to vote against Paul Ryan's bid for Speaker.

And after you call, I hope you'll consider keeping our emergency grassroots program against Paul Ryan running by chipping in $10 or $25 right away.

It's an honor to have you by my side as I continue to fight for Traditional Values against any opponent.

For the Family,

President, Public Advocate of the United States

P.S. Our emergency grassroots program to defeat Paul Ryan's bid for U.S. House Speaker has put Congress on notice.

But I still need you to call your Congressman right away at 202-224-3121 and urge them to publicly oppose and vote against pro-Homosexual Lobby Paul Ryan's bid for Speaker.

And please help Public Advocate immediately continue our emergency grassroots operation by chipping in $10 or $25 right away.

A thank you from Free Press

From Free Press:

Amazing news: On Thursday, the FCC voted to reduce the out-of-control cost of local, in-state and long-distance prison-phone calls — thanks in part to the actions you’ve taken.

For years, many prisoners and their families have had to pay up to $10 or more for a 15-minute phone call thanks to the predatory prices charged by companies like Securus Technologies.

The skyrocketing cost of these calls has made it difficult — sometimes impossible — for families to stay in touch with their loved ones.

Thanks to the leadership of Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, and her colleagues Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel and Chairman Tom Wheeler, the FCC moved again to ensure that predatory prison phone rates don’t prevent families from remaining connected. Yesterday’s vote builds on the reforms the agency adopted during Commissioner Clyburn’s tenure as acting chairwoman in 2013.

As always, the FCC didn’t do it alone. The work of the Campaign for Prison Phone Justice, the Center for Media Justice, the Media Action Grassroots Network, civil rights groups, public interest organizations and thousands of people elevated the voices of inmates and their families in Washington, D.C. — and made it possible for the FCC to take action.

Thank you for showing, once again, that when we collectively raise our voices we can make a difference.


Lucia, Joseph, Matt, Mary Alice and the rest of the Free Press team

Thank you!

And thank you to everyone who participated in correcting this greedy slimy act by Securus Technologies. This is why people hate corporations.

Ben Carson Wants to "Intensify" the War on Drugs
The Iowa frontrunner is spoiling for more drug war.

Katherine Mangu-Ward|Oct. 22, 2015 4:50 pm

Presidential contender Ben Carson told Glenn Beck that he wants to "intensify" the war on drugs.

Robby Soave blogged Carson's controversial remarks about using the federal Department of Education to eradicated political bias from the academy yesterday, but elsewhere in the same Blaze interview (starting at about 1:30) the brain surgeon/book writer/Iowa poll leader reiterated his intention to double down on drug prohibition:

Beck is conducting a lightning round of questions. He asks Carson:

Beck: Do you continue the war on drugs?

Carson: Absolutely

Beck: You do?

Carson: I would intensify it.

(Reason readers may recall that our own Jacob Sullum helped usher the talk show personality onto the anti-prohibition bandwagon earlier this year.)

Then, bless his besweatered heart, Beck drops a wee, snarky little pause on the candidate and then follows up:

Beck: Let me ask you a question...

Beck: How...

Beck: I mean, it doesn't seem to be working now.

Carson: Yeah well, go down to the border in Arizona like I was a few weeks ago. I mean, it's an open highway and the federal government isn't doing anything to stop it.

Beck then asks the candidate if he would legalize marijuana and Carson replies "I disagree with it." He has previously said that he considers pot a "gateway drug."

This concludes today's harshing of your buzz.

P.S. Tune into Kennedy on Fox Business tonight to hear me talk about this, Benghazi, the Kardashians, and much, much more.

CISA could come to a vote at any minute in the Senate

From Fight For The Future:

Bad news.

Despite the fact that nearly every major tech company and security expert has come out against it, Congress is still rushing toward a vote on CISA, and the numbers are not looking good. The House Intelligence chief is claiming that CISA will pass “overwhelmingly,” despite the massive public outcry.

It pains me to say this, but CISA is going to become law unless we go all out right now and every single person getting this does everything in their power to stop it and their phones ring off the hook.

There’s just hours left to have an impact,tell your lawmakers to vote NO on CISA right now.

If you’re still catching up, CISA is the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act, which is one of the most dangerous pieces of legislation in the Internet’s history. It sets the precedent for what the Internet is used for into the future. It would effectively give the government full access to all of our information to use as they wish, end privacy policies, and make all of us more vulnerable to cyber attacks.

CISA would allow spy agencies like the NSA to collect even more of your personal data and then share it with dozens of other government agencies, all the way down to local police, authorizing them to use it for an absurdly wide range of purposes that have nothing to do with “cybersecurity,” including investigating "fake" id's.

Worse, it will literally do nothing to stop the types of high profile cyber attacks that Congress is using to justify it. So we get less privacy AND less security, while giant companies like Target, Experian, and Sony will get legal immunity that lets them on the hook when they fail to protect our data.

There’s still a chance. We’ve won against these types of odds before. But everyone getting this needs to take action TODAY.

No matter what happens, we’ve put up a hell of a fight. Together we put the fear of the Internet into the largest tech companies in the U.S. and got them to take a stand against this bill. Now we need to bring it home.

We at Fight for the Future are working around the clock on this right now. Several of us are en route to Washington, DC as I write this and we’ll be participating in an awesome protest outside Congress TONIGHT at 6:30pm EST with giant light up signs.

Beyond making calls, if you’re in the DC area or know someone who is, go here to get the details and RSVP or spread the word by clicking here

Congress is hoping that they can sneak this bill through without a fight. We need to prove them wrong.

The final vote is days away. Click here to take action against CISA right now.

We can’t thank you enough for all you do. This is the free speech fight of our generation, and we’re proud to be with you on the frontlines.

For the Internet,

Don't let some Clintonite liberal replace Trey Gowdy

From Patriots For Economic Freedom:

Politico Has Falsely Accused Trey Gowdy Of Outing A CIA Source! This Is An Defamatory Lie Intended To Destroy Trey Gowdy's Benghazi Investigation! Even The State Department Has Acknowledged That "Failed To Delete The Name When Clearing The Email For Disclosure."

The left is out to destroy Trey Gowdy. Liberals are terrified that Trey Gowdy is going to expose Hillary Clinton's treasonous crimes in Benghazi and ruin her campaign. Once voters hear that Hillary Clinton made direct orders to hide evidence and ignore security in Benghazi, her campaign will collapse.

Media elites and Democrats in Congress are doing everything possible to discredit Trey Gowdy's investigation. His character is being smeared and the Benghazi investigation has been labeled a "political witch hunt" by the radical left. Worse yet, Politico just published an article that falsely accuses Trey Gowdy of outing a CIA source! Politico's accusation is completely false and even the State Department has admitted that they "failed to delete the name when clearing the email for disclosure." Will you help defend Trey Gowdy from the leftist attacks? Please contribute $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000, or more, to support Trey Gowdy with voter outreach and advertising.

The last few weeks have been full of attacks on Trey Gowdy. In fact, Trey Gowdy recently told supporters that "in some ways these have been among the worst weeks of my life." Trey Gowdy further explained that, “Attacks on your character, attacks on your motives, are 1,000-times worse than anything you can do to anybody physically — at least it is for me.” The left has absolutely no shame and will say anything to smear Trey Gowdy! Conservatives must fight back! Please contribute $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000, or more, to support Trey Gowdy with voter outreach and advertising!

The left wants to defeat Trey Gowdy. Clinton operatives are working to remove Trey Gowdy from Congress because they view him as a threat. The leftist attacks against Trey Gowdy are vicious and getting worse every week! Conservatives everywhere must defend Trey Gowdy's House Seat! Will you help re-elect Trey Gowdy?

As a father, Trey Gowdy knows that the Washington leftist agenda is bad for future generations. In Congress, Trey Gowdy fights to cut spending, end burdensome regulations, and defend the vision of America's founding fathers. He knows that Washington is the biggest obstacle to job creation in America! It is crucial that conservatives everywhere support Trey Gowdy and defend his seat in Congress. Conservatives cannot allow Trey Gowdy to be replaced by a radical liberal! Please help re-elect Trey Gowdy to Congress by contributing $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000, or more, for voter outreach and advertising!

Also, checks can be mailed to:

Your vote counted

From Stop Hillary PAC:

Hillary testifies in front of Trey Gowdy and the Benghazi Committee in less than 24 hours.

Your vote in yesterday's EMERGENCY Membership Directive gave us the overwhelming (virtually unanimous) message DON'T CAVE to Hillary, the Democrats, and the leftist media -- KEEP FIGHTING.

With your help, we are fighting back harder than ever.

So here it -- NOW -- chip in to put up this new, hard-hitting Stop Hillary ad up in front of millions of Americans.

Hillary asks, 'what difference does it make?' We are reminding her -- and America -- it makes a world of difference, because four men are no longer standing.

We've been working for over a year to force Hillary to testify in front of Trey Gowdy.

She still hasn't explained why she ignored Ambassador Stevens' repeated requests for more security.

She still hasn't explained why she deflected blame from terrorists by claiming the attacks were a popular response to an Internet video, when her internal emails show she knew from the beginning that al Qaeda was responsible.

All eyes will be on this hearing, but the Democrats and their media friends will try to spin this Hillary's way.

We cannot let that happen.

That is why we've put together this new ad to follow hot on the heels of our CNN debate ad that Hillary's campaign could only call, "Disgusting."


Political Director, Stop Hillary PAC

P.S. I need you with me on this one. That's why I'm personally asking you: click here to chip in and be among the first to watch our hard-hitting ad?

Tell your Representative to oppose the nomination of Paul Ryan for Speaker of the House

From Public Advocate:

Have you heard the terrifying news?

Congressman Paul Ryan confirmed he is running for U.S. House Speaker.

And he's already demanding pro-Family and grassroots conservatives in the House give up all their power to the Speaker's throne.

That's why I need you to call 202-224-3121 immediately and urge your Congressman to vote against Paul Ryan's bid for Speaker.

You see, Paul Ryan co-sponsored and voted for the dangerous Gay Bill of Special Rights (H.R. 3685).

This bill is the crown jewel for the radical Homosexual Lobby.

If passed, it will shred the Constitution and enact special job rights for homosexuals.

Businesses may have to adopt hiring quotas to protect themselves from lawsuits.

Radical homosexuals will terrorize daycare centers, hospitals, churches and private schools.

And it will be virtually impossible to defend Traditional Values from the radical homosexual activists in America.

If Ryan is successful in his bid to be the next Speaker, I'm afraid he'll use the power of the position to sell out pro-Family Americans to the demands of homosexual activists.

That's why after you call 202-224-3121, I need you to keep Public Advocate's "Stop Paul Ryan" grassroots program running by chipping in $10 or $25 right away.

You see, my staff and I have been working relentlessly to pressure Congressmen to say no to Paul Ryan's bid for Speaker.

I authorized an aggressive grassroots campaign targeting Paul Ryan's own district and over 40 other key districts with Facebook, Drudge Report and Google Ads.

And it's having an immediate impact.

In South Carolina, Congressman Mick Mulvaney back-tracked from his initial praise of Paul Ryan after our ads and your phone calls targeted his district.

And pro-Family champions Raul Labrador (R-ID), Steve King (R-IA), and Thomas Massie (R-KY) have all spoken against Paul Ryan since Public Advocate launched our emergency program.

Steve King even said he expects Paul Ryan's nomination to be a "battle."

This is far from the coronation Paul Ryan was expecting.

But in order to continue this very effective program, I need to count on you to chip in $10 or $25 right away.

Your donation will immediately be put directly towards the cost of our targeted ads.

So after you call your Congressman at 202-224-3121 and urge them to oppose Paul Ryan, please give your most generous gift right away.

Time is of the essence.

For the Family,

President, Public Advocate of the United States

P.S. The race to replace Speaker Boehner is heating up and now pro-Homosexual Lobby Paul Ryan is running.

Paul Ryan voted to pass the Gay Bill of Special Rights in 2007 and if he becomes the next Speaker, he'll have more power to pass it again.

Call your Congressman right away at 202-224-3121 and urge them to publicly oppose and vote against Paul Ryan's bid for Speaker.

And please help Public Advocate immediately continue our emergency grassroots operation by chipping in $10 or $25 right away.

Or you can email your Representative and tell them to oppose Paul Ryan for Speaker of the House.

Federal judge tell the DOJ to back off raiding medical marijuana dispensaries

Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Win Battle Against Federal Crackdown

"This is a big win for medical marijuana patients and their providers."

Medical marijuana dispensaries scored a major win on Monday when a federal judge ruled that the Department of Justice cannot prosecute legal providers of medical cannabis.

In his ruling, Senior District Judge Charles R. Breyer lifted an injunction against a California dispensary, the Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana, and its founder, Lynette Shaw, ruling that a budget amendment Congress approved last year requires the federal government to respect state marijuana laws. The DOJ is thus precluded from criminally prosecuting organizations like MAMM that comply with state regulations.

The amendment, sponsored by Reps. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) and Sam Farr (D-Calif.), was added to last year's federal spending bill. Under the provision, the Justice Department is prohibited from using federal funds to undermine state medical marijuana programs. The Rohrabacher-Farr amendment came in response to a renewed federal crackdown on the medical marijuana industry in California, where medical pot has been legal since 1996. MAMM, located in Fairfax, California, was one of the targeted dispensaries, and shuttered in 2011 under federal pressure.

However, the Justice Department has narrowly interpreted the amendment, telling the Los Angeles Times in April that the new restrictions don't apply to dispensaries or individuals, but instead prevents the feds from "impeding the ability of states to carry out their medical marijuana laws."

The amendment's authors vehemently disagreed, accusing the DOJ of violating the law and calling for an investigation into the department's crackdown on legal businesses.

Monday's ruling struck a blow to the DOJ's interpretation of the law, which Breyer said "tortures the plain meaning of the statute."

"It defies language and logic for the Government to argue that it does not 'prevent' California from 'implementing' its medical marijuana laws by shutting down these same heavily-regulated medical marijuana dispensaries," Breyer wrote. "And contrary to the Government's representation, the record here does support a finding that Californians' access to legal medical marijuana has been substantitively impeded by the closing of dispensaries, and the closing of MAMM in particular."

The decision could have wide-ranging implications, as 23 states plus the District of Columbia have legalized pot for medical use. Another 17 states have allowed the use of non-psychoactive cannabis extract to treat conditions like severe epilepsy in children.

Marijuana advocates applauded Breyer's ruling Tuesday.

"This is a big win for medical marijuana patients and their providers, and a significant victory in our efforts to end the federal government’s war on marijuana. Federal raids of legitimate medical marijuana businesses aren’t just stupid and wasteful, but also illegal," said Dan Riffle, director of federal policies for Marijuana Policy Project, in a statement.

"It's great to see the judicial branch finally starting to hold the Justice Department accountable for its willful violation of Congress's intent to end federal interference with state medical marijuana laws,"said Tom Angell, chairman of the pro-legalization group Marijuana Majority. "I hope the Obama administration takes this ruling to heart and makes sure DEA and federal prosecutors finally stop trying to stand between patients and their medicine."

Shaw, MAMM's founder, also praised the ruling.

"I'm very happy and I’m very relieved that I will get to return to my life’s work,” she told the San Francisco Chronicle.


Support the National Right To Work Act

From The National Right To Work Committee:

The 2016 Presidential Election campaigns are at full stride, and the start of the Congressional races is not far behind.

Airwaves will resound with politicians and talking heads, expounding on what ails our country.

But there is one issue they all too often fail to mention -- a policy that holds back our economy, corrupts our political system and punishes working Americans just trying to live out the American dream . . .

. . . Compulsory Unionism.

You see, in 1935, politicians in Washington, D.C. bestowed on Big Labor the raw power to compel working men and women to pay tribute to a union boss just to work and feed their families.

And the injustice doesn’t stop there.

Union officials use this forced-dues treasure chest to bankroll the election and re-election of their pet politicians, who in turn vote with the union bosses at the expense of rank-and-file workers and the businesses that employ them.

Now, going into next year’s elections, it’s time you and I make forced unionism an issue the politicians dare not ignore.

That’s why I hope you’ll sign the petition I've prepared for you to your Congressman and Senators at once.

The fact is, the cost of federally imposed forced unionism to working men and women, small businesses, taxpayers and all Americans is enormous:

***Millions of working Americans are forced to pay union dues out of every paycheck -- giving union bosses money that could go to workers’ families or be saved for their future.

***Big Labor’s forced-unionism power is deadly to millions of small businesses. Union-label politicians and Obama-stacked bureaucracies strangle businesses with confiscatory taxes, straitjacket regulations and destructive laws, damaging our economy and driving good jobs overseas -- or out of existence.

***Union bosses pump hundreds of millions of dollars into the coffers of handpicked, radical Tax-and-Spend politicians like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

***Bitter strikes shut down businesses and destroy jobs, while union militants foment “hate-the-boss” propaganda and wield brickbats against anyone who gets in their way -- workers, their families, even innocent bystanders.

The good news is, a National Right to Work law, when ultimately passed, will end Big Labor’s stranglehold on American workers, businesses and the economy.

And just getting a vote is a win/win scenario for opponents of forced unionism.

You see, poll after poll confirms that nearly 80% of Americans believe compulsory unionism is just plain wrong.

A public, roll-call vote will put every member of Congress on record for or against forcing workers to pay dues and fees just to get or keep their jobs.

Then, the true loyalties of Big Labor’s pet politicians will be laid bare for all to see, and the voters will hold them accountable.

The fact is, every time there has been a high-profile vote on compulsory unionism, forced-dues advocates have gone down in flames when faced with re-election.

That’s why it’s vital you sign the petition to your U.S. Congressman, Senators, Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, urging them to cosponsor and seek roll-call votes on the National Right to Work Act (S. 391/H.R. 612).

This one-page Bill does not add a single word to existing federal law. It simply repeals those sections that grant Big Labor the power to force working Americans to pay dues and fees as a condition of employment.

And a National Right to Work law would strike at the heart of Big Labor’s power -- coercion.

Over the years, well-intentioned efforts have been made to curtail the union bosses’ forced-dues power, but these efforts have been like a terrier nipping at an elephant.

Only a National Right to Work law will put a stake in the heart of Big Labor’s compulsory unionism leviathan and the devastation it begets . . .

. . . The out-of-control spending, soaring taxes and skyrocketing debt coupled with closed plants, foreclosed homes and dwindling opportunities.

All while union bigwigs enjoy a champagne, caviar and limousine lifestyle with booty stripped from workers forced to turn over their hard-earned wages.

That’s why it’s so important you and I not give politicians a pass on this crucial issue.

And why it’s vital you sign the petition I've prepared for you, demanding that your Congressman and Senators cosponsor and seek roll-call votes on the National Right to Work Act at once.

With BILLIONS of forced-dues dollars and tremendous political power at stake, you can be sure Big Labor and their Washington, D.C. allies will do everything they can to kill our Bill quietly, without even a vote.

In fact, with presidential campaigning in full swing and Congressional campaigns to kick off soon, forced-dues apologists can’t afford a public debate focusing attention on the evils of compulsory unionism.

So it’s up to you and me to shine a spotlight on the scourge of Big Labor’s forced-unionism privileges by forcing a vote on the National Right to Work Act.

But we can’t do it alone.

It will take the heat from throngs of Americans, demanding an end to the blight of forced unionism, to propel action on Capitol Hill.

That’s why, along with your petitions, I hope you’ll include a generous contribution of $30 to help rally opponents of forced unionism nationwide to join the battle to recruit cosponsors and force roll-call votes on the National Right to Work Act.

If $30 is just too much for you to spare right now, please consider $.00 or $20.

Now is the time for opponents of forced unionism to unmask Big Labor’s crony politicians and hold them accountable.

So please sign the enclosed petitions and return them along with your most generous contribution of $30, $20, or at least $.00 at once.


Mark Mix

P.S. Big Labor’s forced-dues power holds back our economy, corrupts our political system and subjugates Americans to union boss tyranny.

That’s why it’s vital you sign and return the enclosed petitions to your Congressman, Senators, Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader McConnell today, urging them to cosponsor and hold roll-call votes on the National Right to Work Act at once.

And along with your signed petitions, please include a generous contribution of $30, $20, or $.00 to mobilize Americans across the country to demand an end to the national scourge of compulsory unionism.

Give our troops a pay raise

From The National Republican Congressional Committee:

You won’t believe this.

Democrats just voted against giving our troops a pay raise even though they voted earlier this year to give themselves one.

Sign the official petition to stand up for a pay raise for our troops instead of politicians.

We're not going to let this stand -- but we need to show that we have support from the American people. Please stand against House Democrats and sign our petition.

Our troops deserve better.

Let's get this done: Sign the petition.


Join Senator Rand Paul in opposing CISA

From Campaign For Liberty:

The Senate intends to pass a new warrantless surveillance bill granting government broad new authorities for collecting your personal information from private businesses, and it's up to you and me to stop them.

On Wednesday the Senate may hold its first vote on the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), S. 754.

Promoted as a "much-needed" "cybersecurity" bill, Congress devised a new way for intelligence agencies to collect your emails and sensitive data.

The bill "encourages" private companies like Google, Facebook, and Yahoo to monitor their networks and share "cyber threat indicators" broadly with agencies like the FBI, NSA, and CIA.

Worse yet, the bill allows the government to share and use your information for reasons completely unrelated to cybersecurity!

And on top of all that, this bill grants companies immunity to ensure they give the government as much information as possible...

Without having to make any effort to redact your sensitive information.

Let that sink in for a moment...

The same government that can't protect its own data on 22.1 million federal employees, contractors, and their families and friends wants private businesses to share your personal information freely with them.

And if (more likely, when) your information is misused either by government agencies, private businesses, or both, you will be unable to hold anyone accountable.

Ray, you and I can both see this isn't going to end well.

CISA is justified as necessary to stop hackers...

But sharing your Google searches and emails with Homeland Security will not stop hackers.

In fact, nothing in this bill would stop any of the cyber-attacks publicized in the press this year.

When it comes down to it, this is nothing more than a new warrantless surveillance bill.

Congress should be rolling back intelligence agencies' surveillance powers, not granting new ones.

Recently, the President of the American Library Association, Sari Feldman, spoke out against the bill saying,

"When librarians oppose a bill with 'information sharing' in its name you can be sure that the bill is decidedly more than advertised."

Businesses like Twitter, Yelp, Facebook, and Google all oppose this bill.

You only need to look at who is sponsoring this bill to realize it isn't for your benefit or mine.

Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Richard Burr (R-NC), two of the biggest surveillance state proponents in the Senate, are working diligently to ram this legislation through.

And that makes the first potential vote on Wednesday crucial.

Per standing Senate rules, the Senate needs 60 votes to proceed on the bill.

Senators Rand Paul (R-KY), Ron Wyden (D-OR), and Bernie Sanders (I-VT), have all vocally opposed this legislation.

But it's going to take an outpouring of opposition from grassroots Americans like you to stop this warrantless surveillance bill from passing the Senate.

That's why it's vital you sign your emergency "Stop the Surveillance State!" Fax Petitions to your U.S. Senators today.

These petitions let your senators know you see right through the thin fa├žade of "cybersecurity" and recognize this bill for what it is - a new warrantless surveillance bill.

At a time when Congress needs to do more to rein in the intelligence agencies to protect your privacy, many senators are trying to expand the surveillance state.

Let them know you'll have nothing of it.

Please take action today, then forward this email to your friends and family and ask them to sign their emergency "Stop the Surveillance State!" Fax Petitions as well.

Public pressure matters. And if you remain silent, don't look to blame others later for your lost liberties.

It's time the American people stand up and say, "Enough is enough!"

In Liberty,

Tim Shoemaker
Director of Legislation

"Another one bites the dust? A look at Trey Gowdy’s worst moments as new reports suggest his retirement is near" -

"Trey Gowdy’s hurt feelings: Benghazi fraudster flails as his farce flops" -


The left wants the American people to think that Trey Gowdy is engaged in a political witch hunt against Hillary Clinton. Media elites are pushing the notion that Hillary Clinton didn't do anything wrong in Benghazi and Trey Gowdy's investigation is purely partisan politics. This liberal narrative is simply an attempt to protect Hillary Clinton and hide the truth from voters! Will you help Trey Gowdy stand up for the truth? Americans need to know about Hillary's direct orders to hide evidence and ignore security in Benghazi. Please contribute $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000, or more, to support Trey Gowdy with voter outreach and advertising! Conservatives everywhere should help keep Trey Gowdy fighting for our principles in Congress!

Once voters know the truth about Hillary Clinton's treasonous crimes in Benghazi, her campaign will collapse. Voters will be outraged when they hear about her direct orders to hide evidence and ignore security in Benghazi! The left doesn't want the truth to get out because it will destroy Hillary's campaign! It is absolutely crucial that Trey Gowdy completes his investigation! The left cannot be allowed to shutdown Trey Gowdy's committee! The American people deserve to know the truth! Please contribute $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000, or more, to support Trey Gowdy with voter outreach and advertising!

The left wants to defeat Trey Gowdy. Clinton operatives are working to remove Trey Gowdy from Congress because they view him as a threat. The leftist attacks against Trey Gowdy are vicious and getting worse every week! Conservatives everywhere must defend Trey Gowdy's House Seat! Will you help re-elect Trey Gowdy?

As a father, Trey Gowdy knows that the Washington leftist agenda is bad for future generations. In Congress, Trey Gowdy fights to cut spending, end burdensome regulations, and defend the vision of America's founding fathers. He knows that Washington is the biggest obstacle to job creation in America! It is crucial that conservatives everywhere support Trey Gowdy and defend his seat in Congress. Conservatives cannot allow Trey Gowdy to be replaced by a radical liberal! Please help re-elect Trey Gowdy to Congress by contributing $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000, or more, for voter outreach and advertising!

CISA,the internet freedom killing and good bye to your privacy bill,is up for a vote in Congress

From Fight For The Future:

This is the week. Congress is about to create a seismic rupture in the Internet.

CISA is coming up for final vote sometime today or tomorrow. If it passes, we'll be more vulnerable to hacks as companies shift responsibility for preventing them away to the government. Companies will continue to leave the door open for thieves to get your information, including your bank information and Social Security number. On top of that, all your data will be automatically shared with 7 government agencies, including the NSA and local police.

They're trying to ignore that millions of people have already called on Congress to stop CISA. And, that they have no business passing it.

This week, we have to show them again. Tell Congress to vote NO on CISA now.

The other side wants us to get sick of taking action. They want to wear us down until we give up. We can't give up at this final juncture. The Intelligence Committee, full of the Congresspeople who take the most money from the Defense Industry, is hell bent on passing a “cybersecurity” bill in some form. They don't care what it does or says, even if it means creating more vulnerabilities across the Internet and breaking it.

This is corruption. The Defense industry cares about profit as much as the next industry. But, their pockets are very, very deep. They've bought out politicians to do their bidding. That's why it's convenient that Congress doesn't understand the Internet and doesn't know how to address cyber hacks.

Instead of making sure companies use good security, Congress is convinced they should install a massive

surveillance law to watch for hacks. Even security experts have roundly condemned the bill for its ineffectiveness, but Congress is so corrupted they don't care or don't understand that it won't work.

That's why they need to hear how inept they are, or they'll never stop. If thousands of you rally and tell them to stop their corrupt bill CISA now, we can stop it and set a precedent for the future. Take action now.

Just a few month ago, things were looking really grim. It seemed almost certain that CISA would pass, but since then we've unleashed a huge can of whoopass and our campaigns have led to nearly every major tech company in the U.S. speaking out to oppose this bill. Trade groups that represent Google, Facebook, Amazon, Sprint have come out against CISA. Twitter, Yelp, Wikipedia came out opposed too, thanks to you and all the grassroots pressure.

And, we're organizing the Internet Defense League and thousands of sites to take action this week to stop the bill. If you have a website, click here to join in! (Or join with your twitter here.)

We've done all this work because surveillance is the defining issue in our digital age.

We're in a moment when our data and privacy have become currency. Governments and corporations are fighting over what to do with it, how to pass laws that let them reap profit and power off of it, even when it's abusive, criminal, or unconstitutional.

We have to make the line in the sand clear. Our data must be protected and can't be used against us.

That's what we're demanding by stopping CISA, and that's what we have to keep fighting for.

Tell Congress to oppose CISA

Hillary's new address

Will Smith makes financial contribution to the Nation of Islam

From Preserve Freedom now:

You loved him in Men In Black.

He was great in The Pursuit of Happiness and Bad Boys.

You started laughing with him as The Fresh Prince.

Will Smith is one of Hollywood’s top stars.

He appears to be sensible and pretty much apolitical.

Well, perhaps you’ll view Will Smith a bit differently when you learn about his recent $150,000 donation:

Will Smith is one of America’s most famous actors, and he is about to become famous for an entirely different reason.

Reports have begun to surface that Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith, have given a huge sum of money to Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the radical group “Nation of Islam.” Nation of Islam also has ties to the Black Panthers, a black power movement that borders on being terrorist organization.

That should be interesting to explain on their tax returns.

Farrakhan is proudly stating that Smith gave $150,000 to his “Justice… Or Else!” march.

This march, which is theoretically supposed to honor the 20-year anniversary of Farrakhan’s Million Man March, will take place on October 10 in Washington D.C.

Will, your career and success has been a powerful example for Black people.

Why throw it all away now?


Help John Dennis defeat Nancy Pelosi

From Conservative America Now:

Nancy Pelosi Can Be Defeated! She Is A Liberal Extremist And An Enemy Of Freedom! With Your Help, John Dennis Can Replace Nancy Pelosi In Congress!

Nancy Pelosi is a creature of Washington. She is a career politician and a heroine of the radical left. During her time in Congress, she has worked to grow the government, increase spending, and restrict freedoms. In fact, it is fair to say that ObamaCare, guest worker programs, and bailouts can be blamed on Nancy Pelosi. If it wasn't for Nancy Pelosi's efforts to whip Democrat votes, numerous liberal bills would have failed.

Fortunately, Nancy Pelosi can be defeated. Conservative John Dennis can replace Nancy Pelosi in Congress but he needs your help. As a businessman, John Dennis understands the importance of limited government and lower taxes. He is a signer of the Americans for Prosperity Taxpayer Protection Pledge and he also has an "A" rating from the National Rifle Association. Will you help John Dennis defeat Nancy Pelosi? Your contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000, or more, is vital for voter outreach and advertising efforts.

As a technology entrepreneur and real estate investor, John Dennis knows that Washington is an obstacle to job growth. In Congress, John Dennis will work to repeal ObamaCare, end Common Core, and balance the budget. He will also fight hard to stop amnesty and defend the Constitution. There is no question that John Dennis is a true conservative on every issue!

Nancy Pelosi is out of touch. She cares more about serving in House leadership than working to serve America as a Representative. Her continual efforts to sabotage conservative legislation and obstruct negogations are absolutely unacceptable. For most of her time in Congress, Nancy Pelosi has simply worked with top Democrats as a barricade to conservative bills. It is time for her to go!

The political class would be absolutely stunned if Nancy Pelosi was defeated. Nancy Pelosi represents the liberal agenda in the House to grassroots Democrats and if she lost the left would be shocked. Will you help suprise the establishment? Your contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000, or more, is crucial for voter outreach and advertising.

John Dennis wants to stop the out of control spending in Washington! He knows that jobs are created in the private sector and not in Washington! In Congress, he will work to downsize government and increase freedom!

Please contribute $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000, or more, to support voter outreach and advertising efforts for John Dennis. It is time for Nancy Pelosi to retire!

The government wants to ban encryption

From Fight For The Future:

Encryption is the basis for all privacy and security online. If your phone or laptop gets stolen, encryption is the only thing protecting your photos and personal information.

Without encryption, your credit card numbers, passwords and online accounts would be accessible to anyone. Encryption is also the only hope that leaders, activists, and journalists have for protection from government spies. It’s that big a deal.

But now, governments are threatening to ban it. Why? Because encryption makes some locks so strong, even governments can’t open them – and that lack of control freaks governments out.

Even if we wanted the FBI or local police to be able to access any seized iPhone or encrypted message in an emergency, there’s another problem: you can’t have it both ways. If the government gets a special backdoor, it’s only a matter of time before criminals figure it out, and then we’re all vulnerable. Even worse, just the process of adding the backdoor brings huge new complexities and more opportunities for mistakes – mistakes that attackers can exploit.

The worst part is, most people in government either don’t understand this or they pretend not to. They want the instant backdoor access AND the security encryption provides.

This is why we’re so worried about this. Even well-meaning politicians could make a disastrous mistake here, out of simple ignorance.

Countries around the world are watching to see what the US does. We *need* to demand a response from the White House. Can you sign the petition right now?

This is about the basic integrity of our bank accounts. It’s about protecting people from the pain of having their private photos spilled onto the Internet. But it goes even farther than that...

This past summer, my stomach turned as I read1 about vulnerabilities in over 500,000 cars (!)that let hackers disable engines and brakes, remotely, anonymously, over the cellphone network. Security researchers are barely able to keep us safe as it is; a ban on strong encryption all but guarantees catastrophic attacks.

Defending encryption has become a matter of life and death. Can you sign this petition now, to defend our basic safety in the digital age?

And there’s one more thing. This may not be important to all of you, but it’s pretty important to us. A few years back, a pretty incredible new innovation came along. It’s called “the blockchain” and it lets engineers build decentralized, free-and-open-source alternatives to centralized corporate monoliths like Paypal, Facebook, Google, Uber, or eBay. That really matters.2

But if governments ban encryption, blockchain technology (which depends on cryptography) would become impossible or illegal. The brilliant young people working on replacing Google or Facebook with something we all control could be thrown in jail, just for building a better Internet.

That’s the dark future that scares me most of all. And I want to do everything I can to prevent it from happening. But we need your help. Can you sign?

Thank you for everything you do,
– Holmes Wilson and the whole Fight for the Future team.

P.S. If this issue is important for you as it is for us, please chip in $5 right now. Not many funders get how big a deal defending crypto is, so Fight for the Future’s ability to do its best work on this issue is in your hands. That said, if you’d like to be involved in funding a larger project, or know someone who might be, be in touch.



Sign the petition to keep Paul Ryan from becoming Speaker of the House

From Public Advocate:

We're running out of time.

Congressman Paul Ryan is expected to announce his decision to run for U.S. House Speaker as early as Monday.

It's crucial for you to sign your emergency petition letting your Congressman know you oppose Ryan's dangerous potential run for Speaker right away.

That's because Paul Ryan co-sponsored and voted for the dangerous Gay Bill of Special Rights.

And if this is how he votes as a Congressman, imagine how he'll use the most powerful position in the House to make deals with the radical Homosexual Lobby?

That's why Public Advocate is leading the charge and encouraging pro-Family Americans to rise up so we can flood the halls of Congress with petitions urging they vote against Paul Ryan for Speaker.

My staff and I worked long hours to prepare ads on Google, Facebook and Drudge in 42 key districts opposing Paul Ryan.

We've even launched ads in Paul Ryan's very own district in Wisconsin – alerting every pro-Family American in the area about Paul Ryan's betrayal of pro-Family values.

But Public Advocate needs your help to spread the message of Ryan's betrayal.

After you sign your petition, please consider chipping in $10 or $25 to boost our program?

A quick donation of $10 or $25 will fund an additional 2,200 to 11,000 pro-Family views on Facebook alone.

And recent reports are indicating Paul Ryan will be hesitant to run if he feels there is enough grassroots opposition against him.

But unless pro-Family Americans voice their opposition, I'm afraid Congressmen will fall for the myth that Paul Ryan is a pro-Family politician.

Paul Ryan is the Trojan Horse of politicians.

He tries to fool Americans like me and you into believing he supports Religious Liberty and Traditional Values.

But his voting record of supporting the radical Homosexual Lobby's agenda reveals what he really believes in.

In fact, some sources have informed me the Homosexual Lobby secretly wants Paul Ryan.

And why wouldn't they?

Using his power as the Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan would be able to make backroom deals with the Homosexual Lobby and force weak-kneed Republicans into implementing their agenda.

Paul Ryan has already been a major supporter in voting for the Gay Bill of Special Rights.

Imagine what's next if he wins.

That's why it's crucial you sign your petition opposing Paul Ryan and chip in $10 or $25 immediately.

My staff will prepare and send the emergency fax to your Congressman right away.

For the Family,

President, Public Advocate of the United States

P.S. The race to replace Speaker Boehner is heating up and now pro-Homosexual Lobby Paul Ryan is being pressured to run.

Paul Ryan voted to pass the Gay Bill of Special Rights in 2007 and if he becomes the next Speaker, he'll have more power to pass it again.

Please, click here to sign your emergency petition to your Congressman opposing Paul Ryan's bid, along with a $10 or $25 gift right away.

On the Democratic Debate

I'm sure that by now everyone has seen the Democratic Debate with the word "debate" being used very loosely. It was basically a love fest for Hillary Clinton. Even Bernie Sanders is acquiescing to her and he is her chief rival for the Democratic nomination. Out of place on stage was Jim Webb. He is a Viet Nam veteran and he was treated like he wasn't there and I could tell he had a look of disgust on his face. I can understand that with Comrade Sanders Fried Chicken next to him so I'm sure he heard Bernie Sanders brag about honeymooning in the Soviet Union. The same Soviet Union that supplied North Viet Nam with weapons that were used against guys like Webb. Then there is Hillary the Hippie whom I'm sure spit on a lot of returning servicemen coming home from Viet Nam. The same guys Webb fought alongside. Webb is a part of the old democratic party that represented the blue collar worker. That Democratic Party is gone. Replaced by a gynocratic gynocentric nightmare with Debbie Wasserman Schultz alongside other women running the Democratic Party. They are dead set on making sure Hillary gets the nomination come hell or high water. That is why it wasn't much of debate. It was just basically one of Hillary's many coronations that will be taking place until the elections.
