Campaign For Liberty is gearing up for Audit The Fed among other things

From Campaign For Liberty:

This year’s “campaign for liberty” is in play for our toughest yet.

But your hard work is undeniably paying off.

Campaign for Liberty supporters like you are making a difference every day.

And I believe there’s never been a better opportunity for the liberty movement to make HUGE strides.

So Patriot, today I’m personally requesting your chip in a contribution before 11:59 PM tomorrow, December 31, to help me bring in the New Year with a Liberty Bang!

Please allow my staff, along with activists around the nation, to continue their work for freedom in America.

I’m depending on your continued support.

I know it’s a lot to ask around the holidays, but if you can, please contribute $40 , $30 , or $20 today.

Campaign for Liberty is gearing up for the following:

>>> 2016 kicks off with the Senate vote on Audit the Fed on January 12 (this is HUGE);

>>> President Obama is threatening gun control and a horde of other statist schemes via Executive Order if Congress won’t act;

>>> The IRS could be breathing down our neck once again;

>>> It’s a major Presidential election year, and auditing the Fed is a top issue for voters so it’s sure to be front-and-center through November 2016;

>>> Congress will soon be preparing to renew the FISA Amendments Act. FISA is the secret court that serves as a rubberstamp for the NSA.

As you can see, we have two opportunities to begin dismantling the surveillance state and restore the Fourth Amendment!

And these are only a tiny portion of what is in store for Campaign for Liberty in 2016.

That's why I need to know you'll continue standing with me in 2016.

A generous contribution before tomorrow’s deadline will show me you’re with me.

Chip in here:

Thank you SO much.

For Liberty,

Ron Paul

Rand Paul is gearing up for the Iowa caucus

From Rand Paul 2016:

The end of the year is just days away and this is a critical deadline for us.

It’s the last fundraising deadline before the Iowa Caucus.

We have experts in the field in Iowa and I’m confident we can win the caucus, but I’m going to need your help to fund our efforts and make a big statement.

My team put together an end-of-year moneybomb to help get us through the next steps of this campaign. Please watch my video explaining it:



A big fundraising turnout this month is really critical to building momentum heading into 2016. I hope you can chip in and show the media we're in it to win it.

We know I am the only one willing to take on the status quo and stand up for liberty. We need to make sure our fight continues stronger than ever in 2016.

We can win this thing. We just need your help.

Your donation of any size will make a big difference.

In Liberty,

Rand Paul

Rand Paul addresses Ted Cruz's inconsistancies



From Rand 2016:

One thing I think is clear: we can't afford to hang our hopes for the next election on reality show entertainers.

Or with a group of neocons.

We need a true champion of liberty and conservative causes.

That's why I am running and asking for your help today.

It's also why I am determined that people see the truth about my opponents.

One of them, Ted Cruz, has worked with me on some issues, but has some troubling tendencies that need to be discussed.

Ted Cruz tries to have it both ways and has flip flopped on number of serious issues. My latest ad addresses these inconsistencies.

Ted Cruz was against the patriot act when he ran, but voted to reauthorize it in 2015.

WHAT?

He was also for Obamatrade before he was against it.

Not a good idea.

He was also all for allowing illegal immigrants to stay in 2013, but now he is vying for the bus driver position on Donald Trump's deportation express.

You get the idea.

My thing is - if you ask people to trust you, well, you should be honest with them.

I think Ted is playing games and politics. And this is serious business.

We should know where people stand.

Please watch the video.

Stand with me today.

In Liberty,
Rand Paul

Where in the world is Marco Rubio?



From Rand 2016:

If the American people can't trust Senator Marco Rubio to keep his promises and do the job he was elected to do, how in the world can we trust him to be president?

Yesterday, as I heard Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid gloating after passage of $1.1 TRILLION omnibus spending bill that he bragged "capped off a successful year for Senate Democrats," I couldn't help but wonder, where all of my Republican colleagues who told the American people they would fight President Obama's agenda?

One Senator, Marco Rubio, couldn't even be bothered to show up . . . again.

My campaign just cut a brand-new ad highlighting Senator Rubio's chronic absenteeism, which I hope you'll take a moment to watch.

If Senator Rubio is too busy running for President to stand with conservatives and fight President Obama's radicalism, he should stop ripping off taxpayers. Period.

At least then, patriots like you and me would have an opportunity to have a true conservative standing beside us in the Senate instead of a Senator who puts his own personal ambitions ahead of doing the job he promised voters to do.

If you agree, I hope you'll please agree to your most generous contribution to help me run this ad far and wide.

Whatever you can do -- whether it's $50, $25 or even $10 -- will help my campaign run this ad far and wide.

In Liberty,
Rand Paul

A thank you from Rand Paul 2016

From Rand 2016:

Following Tuesday’s debate, we asked for your help to prove Rand won by contributing to our $200,000 moneybomb.

You came through! We made our goal!

I wanted to say a quick thank you. I’m so happy to tell Rand about the flood of support that followed his debate performance.

Rand has been fighting for the policies that matter most.

Opposing the big spending omnibus

Securing a vote on Audit the Fed for just a few weeks from now
Supporting legislation that strengthens American security by further screening for refugees from Jihadists countries
Pushing for stronger 2nd Amendment rights for Americans

And now we see, the American people are jumping on board with Rand.

That’s because conservative solutions really make sense. And they really work.

We're in this race to win it - and we will. Iowa and beyond.

I'm happy to Stand with Rand.

Will you continue to stand with us?

In Liberty,
Doug Stafford

We got a victory Net Neutrality is still alive

From Free Press Action Fund:

Good news: Your phone calls to Congress worked and the just-passed government-funding bill has NO anti-Net Neutrality language. This is an important victory.

Unfortunately Comcast and the other Internet service providers never take their defeats lying down. They'll continue to come after the FCC rules any way they can.

We'll keep you posted. For now, though, know that you helped deliver a big win in the fight to keep the Internet free and open.

Thank you!

We are winning the fight for Net Neutrality

Free Press Action Fund:

Things are looking good.

Thanks to the tens of thousands of Net Neutrality supporters (like you) who contacted their members of Congress, it looks like anti-Net Neutrality measures are no longer in the must-pass spending bill.

The final vote hasn't happened yet — and we must remain vigilant. But your actions are making the difference in protecting the Internet.

We're winning, but we know our deep-pocketed enemies like Comcast will keep coming.

Stop the sneak attacks: Chip in $10 and help fund the fight to save Net Neutrality.

The fight will only escalate from here. The big court decision on Net Neutrality will be handed down in a few months. If and when the cable companies lose, they might try to take their challenge to the Supreme Court. They’ll get their friends in Congress to keep going after the FCC rules. And they’ll do everything they can to keep the agency from actually enforcing the rules we’ve all fought so hard for.

A generous donor has pledged to donate $25,000 to help us fight back — but only if we raise $25,000 by Dec. 31. We’ve got just $10,000 more to raise. Can we count on you?

Chip in $10 today and help keep the fight for Net Neutrality going strong.

Comcast and its allies will stop at nothing to try to control the Internet. With your help, we won't let them.

Thanks for all that you do—

Craig, Carrie and the rest of the Free Press Action Fund team

P.S. Every dollar gets us closer to getting an additional $25K. Please chip in $10 today to make sure no one messes with your rights online. Thank you!

Tell Congress to save Net Neutrality

Free Press Action Fund:

Negotiations are going down to the wire on a must-pass budget bill. Some members of Congress continue to talk about sneaking in so-called "riders" that could threaten the survival of Net Neutrality.

These negotiations are going on at the highest levels of Congress. While the conversations are taking place behind closed doors, the reporters covering the bargaining process say that anti-Net Neutrality riders are still on the table. These riders would flat out prevent the FCC from enforcing the Net Neutrality rules.

Congressional leaders need to hear from you TODAY: Tell them that the open Internet shouldn’t be up for negotiation.

After passing a short extension Friday, Congress is now scrambling to bring a massive spending bill to the floor this week to avoid another government shutdown. Once this bill hits the floor there likely won’t be any time for open debate on these dangerous riders. Leadership needs to hear from you NOW.

We’ve won this same fight before. Just last summer some longtime anti-Net Neutrality members of Congress tried to sneak the same bad language into government-funding bills. Thanks to the enormous public outcry from people like you, those bills never made it to the floor. That could change now as talk of funding showdowns and shutdowns heats up before the imminent deadline.

Your voice is needed: Tell congressional leaders to speak out for real Net Neutrality.

Nearly 4 million Americans urged the FCC to protect Net Neutrality. Congress must not undermine this historic win by sneaking bad language into a must-pass spending bill.

This stops now.

Thanks for all that you do—

Sandy, Matt, Dutch and the rest of the Free Press Action Fund team
freepress.net

P.S. We’re fighting hard in Congress and in the courts to preserve the FCC’s historic Net Neutrality rules. Help fund the fight with a donation of $10 today. Thank you!

P.P.S. Most of you won't be calling your own members of Congress, but that's OK. These offices need to hear from everyone who supports Net Neutrality!

Help Rand Paul get on the ballot in all 50 states

From Rand Paul 2016:

$2 million.

It’s a lot of money.

But that’s what some of my opponents are budgeting for state filing fees, signature gathering and delegate recruitment to ensure their names get on the ballot in all 50 states!

Of course, I know they’d love to ensure my name never appears . . .

They’d love it if the ONE candidate’s name who’s committed to fighting for liberty and limited government never appeared as a choice before the American people!

That’s why I’m counting on you to help put my name on the ballot in all 50 states with your most generous contribution right away.

The good news is, while other candidates have to pay high-cost political pros to do this work for them because their stale Big Government messages don’t excite anyone, grassroots patriots all over the country are spending long hours volunteering for my campaign.

That means we should be able to complete this task for just a fraction of the cost of other campaigns.

Of course, we still have to come up with the resources to pay exorbitant state filing fees – which can be as much as $40,000 in South Carolina.

So my campaign has set a $750,000 goal for this critical project.

Sadly, we don't have much time.

But I know we can meet this challenge if every one of my supporters is willing to chip in even a little.

Would you agree to help by chipping in $2.00 or even $1.00 per state with a gift of $100 or $50.00?

Or, if that’s too much, would agree to $0.50 a state and give $25?

Any amount you can give– whether it’s $100 or more, or even $50, $25 or $10 – will make a tremendous difference.

Can I count on you right away?

Please help me reach our $750,000 goal!

In Liberty,

Rand Paul

Rand Paul wants get rid of gun control in Washington DC

From Rand Paul 2016:

I don’t think Americans should not be living in fear.

Citizens should not be forfeiting their liberty to the government under the false impression that that is the only way to remain safe.

It’s not. We have options.

I have introduced new legislation in the Defend Our Capital Act of 2015 that will allow American citizens to keep themselves safe -- and therefore keep this country safer.

This bill would remove existing restrictive firearm ownership laws in the District of Columbia, and require the District of Columbia to issue and grant reciprocity for concealed weapons permits for both residents and non-residents.

It’s a true embrace of the 2nd Amendment.

For too long the Americans who live in and visit their nation’s capital have been prevented from defending themselves and their loved ones. No longer should our citizens have to choose between safety or visiting Washington, D.C.

This legislation will immediately improve the security of our country and the safety of those visiting the Capitol by:

Requiring the District of Columbia to begin issuing concealed weapons permits for both residents and non-residents.

Allowing for national reciprocity of conceal and carry weapons permits between states and for carry by active duty military.

Allowing for the carrying of firearms on public, non-sensitive areas of federal property.

Allowing for the purchase of firearms across state lines.

It is not the time to expand the role of government and further crush the individual liberties of the private citizen.

Now is the time to stand strong for the security of our country and make certain that protections are in place to make sure what happened in Paris does not happen here in America.

Will you stand with me in support of our right to arm ourselves?

In Liberty,

Rand Paul

Free Press Action Fund goes to court

From Free Press Action Fund:

Today's the day: We're on our way to court to defend Net Neutrality.

Say you'll stand with us by chipping in $10 to fund the fight.

Ever since the FCC passed strong Net Neutrality protections, big ISPs like Comcast have been fighting both in Congress and the courts to undo them. And today in court, industry lawyers will lay out the same misleading complaints we've heard again and again.

Free Press intervened in this case to defend these vital rules after the cable and phone companies sued to overturn them. We'll be there to stand with the FCC, speak out for Internet users and argue in defense of the open Internet. This has been a long fight, but we're ready.

Your gift today is crucial: We're less than $1,400 away from our goal of raising $50,000 — and if we make it a generous donor will kick in an extra $50,000 to help us keep defending Net Neutrality.

We'd never have gotten this far without you, and we're committed to protecting all that you've won. We'll update you on how everything goes today.

Thanks for all that you do—

Matt, Carrie, Dana and the rest of the Free Press Action Fund team
freepress.net

P.S. No matter the outcome of this case, new battles about the open Internet are sure to follow in Congress and the courts. Help us safeguard Net Neutrality once and for all by chipping in $10 today. Thank you!

Tell Congress not to let middle eastern christians die

From Public Advocate:

Obama has expanded his war on Christians.

I’m sure you’ve heard by now about the potential threat facing American families in the form of unknown and unscreened Muslim refugees coming to your state by the thousands.

Not only are these ranks serving to conceal dangerous radical terrorists, but...

Obama’s refugee program is actively discriminating against Middle East Christians fleeing for their lives.

They are not even being allowed to apply for refugee status.

Small pockets of Christians living within Muslim nations -- these people are the most vulnerable to the ravages of radical Islam.

There are no Christian governments and few non-Christian governments for these oppressed people to turn to.

Yet Obama and his cronies are actively blocking 100% of the Christian Syrian and Iraqi refugees.

This seems to be a Presidential Death Sentence imposed on refugees seeking asylum simply because they are Christians.

Obama's track record against Christians has been well documented by Public Advocate.

We've closely followed the stories of Christian bakers, florists, photographers and even servicemen being persecuted for holding to their religious beliefs.

There are the Colorado bakers who were ordered to attend Homosexual Reeducation Camp, and the Oregon bakers who could lose their home any day to a ruinous lawsuit -- to name two.

Governors of more than half of the United States have declared they do not want Obama’s potentially dangerous refugees -- including unknown numbers of Muslim ISIS terrorists -- within their borders.

Few people or groups have even discussed the plight of Christians, made worse by this President.

Yet, just like with Real Marriage laws, the rights of states and conservative voters are being denied.

As president of Public Advocate, I am formally calling on the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives to take action now to save these Christian Syrian and Iraqi refugees.

And I am asking you to join me.

They are the most vulnerable, the most targeted, they most persecuted in this ISIS War. . . and they are receiving the least aid.

If left in some of these areas and regions, these long practicing Christians could be killed or forced to renounce their faith under excruciating torture.

Major media is all but ignoring their plight.

So it is up to Public Advocate -- you and me and thousands of other supporters -- to defend Christian liberty and American families.

Please contact your Senators and Congressman.

Tell Congress to stop the ISIS terrorist pipeline and instead reverse the alleged Presidential directive to bar persecuted Middle East Christians from even applying for refugee status.

For the Family,

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

P.S. Please consider chipping in a donation today to aid Public Advocate in our fight against the Homosexual Lobby.

Comcast is holding the government hostage

From Demand Progress:

Congress has 8 days left to pass a funding bill to keep the government open past December 11—and Comcast's allies have just slipped a provision into the bill overturning Net Neutrality.1

It's unbelievable. After years of debate, lawsuits, millions of public comments, and countless hours of work by activists like you, the FCC finally declared Net Neutrality the law of the land.

Now Comcast is holding the entire federal government hostage and demanding that Net Neutrality be overturned as ransom.

This is Comcast's most desperate attack on the free and open Internet yet. Will you donate to help sustain our campaign to defend Net Neutrality?

Yes, I'll donate to save Net Neutrality.

This isn't the first time Comcast has tried to use the leverage of a potential government shutdown to roll back Net Neutrality. Earlier this year they tried the same thing—but a massive outcry from Demand Progress members and other open Internet supporters stopped it.

But this time the threat is as big as it's ever been.

Congressional leaders are working behind closed doors on a gigantic $1.1 trillion bill to fund the federal government for the next year. This bill is so big, and touches so many controversial issues, that there's a real risk that hidden anti-Net Neutrality language will slip through unnoticed—unless we're watchdogging every minute.

To fight back, we're once again unleashing our secret weapon to save the Internet: The Internet itself. Working with our allies, we've created a sharable web tool that allows people to call Congress and the White House directly from their web browser either on their PC or mobile device.2

But building an app like this isn't free or easy. Programmers, bandwidth—it all costs money. That's why we're counting on you. Will you donate to help sustain our work to save Net Neutrality?

Yes, I'll donate to save Net Neutrality.

Thanks for taking action on this at a critical time.

Rand Paul wants to stop the left from confiscating your gun

From Rand Paul 2016:

To the national media and Big Government pals, the script is always the same.

Even before facts rolled in about yesterday's horrific shootings in San Bernardino, California that left 14 dead and 17 more wounded, Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama were loudly calling for new gun control schemes.

And the front page of at least one major newspaper this morning says I'm to blame for standing up to past anti-gun measures in Washington, D.C.!

They're exploiting the deaths of innocent Americans to further their plans to dismantle the 2nd Amendment, destroy conservatives, and as we saw today, attack faith and prayer. The victims are just another helpful talking point to the left.

All of this sickens me to the core.

The families of those who died or were wounded deserve more than this.

But all is fair in the liberal war against the Constitution.

And I know more is coming... I know those who try to twist every tragedy to push their Big Government, anti-gun political agenda are not going to give up.

They think our freedom is to blame for every bad that happens. And their proposed solution to every problem is more government -- more liberalism.

I'm not playing by their rules.

And those who are serious about restoring this country can't afford to either.

As we pray for those who lost loved ones yesterday, I'm afraid we must also brace for yesterday's attacks to be compounded with attacks on our liberty.

They've already started. And it's going to get worse.

In Liberty,
Rand Paul

Tell Senators Durbin, Reid and Schumer: Don't let any of your colleagues threaten Net Neutrality.

Free Press Action Fund:

Negotiations over a must-pass budget bill that could threaten the survival of the Net Neutrality rules have now moved to the highest levels. While the conversations in Congress are still taking place behind closed doors, our sources tell us that anti-Net Neutrality riders are part of the latest proposal. These riders would flat out prevent the FCC from enforcing the Net Neutrality rules.

Congressional leaders need to hear from you TODAY: Tell them to stand up for the open Internet.

Democratic leaders Sens. Dick Durbin, Harry Reid, and Chuck Schumer have all said they support real Net Neutrality and the FCC’s right to enforce its rules. Now they need to prove it by standing up to those who want to kill these protections.

Tell Sens. Durbin, Reid and Schumer: Don't let any of your colleagues threaten Net Neutrality.

We’ve won this same fight before. Just last summer some longtime anti-Net Neutrality members of Congress tried to sneak bad language into government-funding bills. Thanks to the massive public outcry from people like you, those bills never made it to the floor. That could change now as talk of funding showdowns and shutdowns is starting up again in the run-up to the Dec. 11 budget deadline.

Durbin, Reid and Schumer have a lot of power. They need to stand strong for the nearly 4 million Americans who urged the FCC to protect Net Neutrality.

Your voice is needed: Tell congressional leaders to speak out for real Net Neutrality.

Congress shouldn’t be allowed to dismantle the FCC's strong open Internet rules through secret deals. We worked too hard for that win to let anyone undo it.

This stops now.

Thanks for all that you do—

Sandy, Matt, Dutch and the rest of the Free Press Action Fund team
freepress.net

P.S. Don’t let Net Neutrality opponents negotiate away your rights in secret. Tell congressional leaders to protect the FCC’s rules.

P.P.S. Most of you won't be calling your own members of Congress, but that’s OK. These offices need to hear from Net Neutrality supporters like you!


You could go with the numbers provided by Free Press Action Fund and/or you can email Senators Durbin,Reid and Schumer and tell them to leave Net Neutrality alone. The more of us they hear from the better so let them know. The internet freedoms you are saving may be your own.

Tell Congress not to gut Net Neutrality

From Demand Progress:

Ugh. Once again, some members of Congress are trying to undermine the open Internet we've fought so hard to protect.

They're trying to sneak dangerous riders into a must-pass government-funding bill that could prevent the FCC from enforcing the Net Neutrality rules. We got pretty close to the passage of similar riders earlier this year, but thanks to massive public outcry from activists like you those bills never made it to the floor.

That could change now as talk of funding showdowns and shutdowns is starting up again in the run-up to the Dec. 11 budget deadline. Can you pick up the phone right now, make a phone call to your Senators, and urge that they stand up for the open Internet?

Right now appropriations committee members are negotiating behind closed doors. They're contemplating huge cuts to the FCC's budget that could prevent the agency from protecting a free and open Internet.

Clearly, some members of Congress have forgotten that there is widespread, bipartisan support for the Net Neutrality. It's frustrating that they can dismantle the rules we fought so hard for — but we can stop them.

Your voice is needed. Will you pick up the phone and tell your Senators that Net Neutrality is NOT on the bargaining table?

Yes, I'll make a phone call to my Senators right now.

No, I can't do that — but I'll chip in $5 or $10 to help Demand Progress in the fight to protect Net Neutrality.

Thanks for taking action on this at a critical time.

P.S. Can you forward this email to five friends to help us multiply our impact? Thank you!

Don't let Net Neutrality be gutted

From Free Press Action Fund:

This year’s Net Neutrality win was an enormous victory for the Internet — but the fight isn’t over yet.

The cable industry is suing the FCC in an attempt to gut the agency’s historic open Internet rules. On Dec. 4, the court will hear oral arguments. The case is even in front of one of the same judges who wrote the decision last year, tossing out the agency's last attempt at Net Neutrality because the FCC picked the wrong legal theories.

In the meantime, Republicans in Congress are trying to attach dangerous riders to must-pass budget legislation that would effectively prevent the agency from enforcing the Net Neutrality rules.

Now is our chance to prove that this time, the FCC got it right. We’re fighting back every day: We’re defending the Net Neutrality rules in court, meeting with members of Congress and challenging industry lies whenever and wherever they pop up.

Thanks for standing with us—

Dana, Carrie and the rest of the Free Press Action Fund team

It’s Giving Tuesday, and you are likely getting bombarded with pleas for money.

Here’s the thing: We are this close — just $7,000 away — from reaching our $50,000 fundraising challenge. If we get there, a generous donor will kick in an extra $50,000.

Can we count on you? Chip in $10 today so we can keep fighting anti-Net Neutrality threats in Congress and in the courts.

Thank you!
