No SCOTUS nominee until Obama leaves office

From Freedom Works:

The liberal unions, Hollywood elites, and K-Street lobbyists are prepared to spend millions of dollars to pressure Senate Republicans into caving to Obama’s demands. They’re fighting tooth and nail to replace Justice Antonin Scalia with a radical liberal like Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch. We cannot allow Senate Republicans to fold, because if they do Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America will finally be complete. Send a message right now to pressure Senate Republicans to oppose any Supreme Court hearings or confirmation until next year.

This is Obama’s last chance to turn the Supreme Court into a den of radical liberalism. But you can’t let that happen. You’ve got to stop him now! Your voice is critical in making sure the Senate stands up to Obama. Contact the Senate Republicans today, and tell them to oppose any Supreme Court confirmation while Obama is in office.

Freedom only works if you’re willing to fight for it.

Block the SCUTUS nomination

From Public Advocate:

This is an email I'd hoped I would never have to write.

I'm still grieving and in shock over the loss of one of the greatest pro-Family champions to ever serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.

But I can't afford to ignore the political reality of Justice Antonin Scalia's death.

Justice Scalia's sudden death set off a political earthquake across the nation.

While conservative and pro-Family Americans paused to honor Scalia's memory...

... the radical Homosexual Lobby immediately sought to stuff their coffers and inform their supporters of Scalia's death.

Social media comments from leftist sites went viral with profane sludge from hate-filled homosexuals rejoicing over the fallen champion's death.

Letting "no crisis go to waste" -- a quote from Obama's former Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel -- they mobilized petitions to weak-kneed Republican Senators facing re-election.

Within hours, several U.S. Senators went from "I refuse to vote for Obama's nominee until after the new president is sworn in," to "We should vote now."

We simply must not allow the U.S. Senate to nominate a pro-Homosexual Justice to the Bench.

That's why I need you to sign your "Hold the Line" petition to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and your U.S. Senators.

I'm also hoping you can contribute a generous donation of $15, $10 or whatever you can afford right away.

Without additional funding, Public Advocate won't have a chance to stop Obama and the radical Homosexual Lobby's hand-picked nominee from being confirmed by the senate to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Many Supreme Court rulings have come down to just one vote the last few years.

In 2014, Religious Liberty won by a thread when the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby's right to object to the abortion pill mandate in ObamaCare, based on their religious beliefs.

And just last year, the radical Homosexual Lobby ushered in homosexual "marriage" by just one vote in the Supreme Court.

You see, Justice Scalia's vote was always reliable in defending the Constitution and Traditional Values.

More than just a vote, Scalia's opinions over nearly 30 years on the bench have become the gold standard for many law students and lawyers.

It pains me to think the next Justice could be the antithesis of Scalia.

Religious Liberty and the Traditional Values you and I hold dear are hanging by a thread.

And why Public Advocate MUST recruit and mobilize thousands of pro-Family Americans in opposition to any nominee hand-picked by the radical Homosexual Lobby and Obama.

That's also why Public Advocate MUST raise the money to fight this.

This is a battle we could not prepare for.

We're already over budget from defending Religious Liberty in all 50 states.

And we consistently have to fight the Gay Bill of Special Rights in Congress as the radical Homosexual Lobby seeks to pick up support for their agenda -- one weak-kneed Republican at a time.

I need you to sign your "Hold the Line" petition along with a generous contribution of $15, $10 or whatever you can afford right away.

Tell McConnell to Holdthe Line

I have spent a week praying and grieving for this nation over the loss of Justice Scalia.

Above all else, I pray for God's will to be done.

The sheer magnitude of this Godly man's devotion to moral values is awesome as only God can inspire.

Its as if we have lost a close relative.

Prayers guide us through this and many terrible events in our lives and certainly I ask you to pray that God help us block Obama and the radical Homosexual Lobby's nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court.

With prayers from Public Advocate supporters like you, I know we are unstoppable.

Prayers guide me so that I am working to do God's will.

And through prayer and inspiration from prayer, and from supporters like you who pray, Public Advocate knows how to overcome and defend against those who would destroy Godly values.

You and I both know that weak kneed politicians act on pressure from voters.

As election day gets closer, the radical Homosexual Lobby will bribe and outright lie to politicians with false promises of delivering thousands of voters to the polls for them.

That's why we can't trust any "promise" to block Obama's nominee until after the new president is sworn in.

We must turn up the pressure on Mitch McConnell and your U.S. Senators.

Sign your petition right away.

The radical Homosexual Lobby is in full throttle trying to ram through their choice for Supreme Court Justice.

Homosexual talk show host, Rachel Maddow, is working overtime for a pro-homosexual nominee.

Maddow's choice, Jeh Johnson, was widely celebrated by radical homosexuals for destroying Religious Liberty in the military by forcing chapels to "marry" homosexuals.

This would be disastrous for every important case pertaining to Religious Liberty heard by the Supreme Court for decades to come.

So please, after you sign your "Hold the Line" petition to Mitch McConnell and your U.S. Senators, please contribute $15, $10 or whatever you can afford so we can block any Obama nominee.

For the Family,

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

P.S. The radical Homosexual Lobby wasted no time spinning and mobilizing support for Obama to nominate a pro-Homosexual nominee after Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's death.

Some Republican Senators have already flip-flopped on whether or not they would block Obama's nominee until after the next president is sworn in.

That's why it's crucial you sign your "Hold the Line" petition to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and your U.S. Senators right away.

We didn't expect this fight, and unlike the Homosexual Lobby, our budget is maxed out.

Please consider a generous donation of $15, $10 or whatever you can afford so we can block Obama's Supreme Court nominee and preserve the memory of Justice Scalia.

Some Senate Republicans are starting to waiver

From The Tea Party Patriots:

Barack Obama is still charging ahead with his plan to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia with a left-wing liberal.

Unless “We the People” take action now, the Republicans will almost certainly give in to his demands!

This is a Constitutional crisis. We MUST pressure the Senate Republicans to hold the line and block any nomination by Barack Obama.

Will you help us do that by making a much-needed contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250, or whatever you can possibly afford right away?

We have identified a small group of on-the-fence Republicans who are vulnerable in this fight.

These Republicans need to know that they have the power to make sure one of the greatest Constitutional defenders of the past century is not replaced by a left-wing justice intent on “fundamentally transforming America.”

And they need to hear it right away.

Please make a generous gift right now to help us mobilize the unparalleled muscle of the Tea Party and defend our Constitution.

Already, the weaker members of the Republican caucus are beginning to fall away.

Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL) just announced that he will not block a left-wing Obama nominee. He’s worried that the liberal voters in his state will fire him in his next election if he stands for our Constitution.

There’s no other way to say it: Senator Kirk values his own career in the Senate above the integrity of our Constitution and the future of our nation.

And I assure you that he’s not the only one.

That’s why we must strike fear into the hearts of these Senators. We must remind them that they work for “We the People.”

Please give whatever you can right away.

Tea Party Patriots has over 700 local affiliates across America ready to swing into action, turn up the heat, and pressure these Senators to hold the line.

Your gift right now will provide us with the resources we’ll need to coordinate and drive that effort.

It will enable us to cover the costs of the advertising, communications, social media, and grassroots efforts to keep the Senate Republicans in line.

But most of all, with your support right now, we can protect Justice Scalia’s legacy from the creeping leftist assault against our Constitution and our liberty.

Please help us hold the line and protect the Supreme Court. Help us keep the Senate Republicans in line!

Please make the most generous gift you possibly can right away.

Thank you so much for your continued support.

Protect your Fourth Amendment rights

From Demand Progress:

The so-called Electronic Communications Privacy Act was passed 30 years ago, and it defies both the Constitution and common sense: It says the government can access emails without a warrant just because they’re over 180 days old. What?!

Congress has the the chance to fix this. There is a bill in the House called the Email Privacy Act that would do just that – with 310 cosponsors it's the most popular bill in Congress.

The bill would require the government get a warrant for email, just like it needs a warrant for postal mail. It’s a no-brainer, and if it went to a full vote tomorrow, it would pass in a landslide.

But it still hasn’t even gotten a vote in committee!

Tell the House Judiciary Committee to vote on this popular bill and protect our Fourth Amendment right to email privacy.

Few bills ever reach such popularity – this is a golden opportunity for Congress to demonstrate to all those disillusioned by Washington gridlock that Congress can actually stand for the public interest for once and pass important, popular legislation.

But law enforcement officials who want to violate our Fourth Amendment privacy rights have convinced some in Congress to delay – or even block – the bill's passage. The status quo gives them easy access to most of our emails without needing a warrant – and they want to keep it that way.

Please tell House Judiciary Chairman Goodlatte and members of Congress to move forward with a vote and to pass the Email Privacy Act.

Thank you,

Mark Stanley

Tell these Senators not to cave into Obama's demands

From Freedom Works:

You deserve to have a voice in selecting Justice Scalia’s successor to the Supreme Court. But some in Washington don’t want that to happen. They’d rather let Obama ram his nominee through the Senate, just to score cheap political points with the liberal media. This is wrong, and it’s up to you to stop them. Call these moderate senators today at 201-571-1178 and tell them to oppose any Supreme Court hearings or confirmation until next year.

We know that Obama’s doing everything he can to force these weak-kneed senators into giving him what he wants. He’s even got his friends in the liberal media and Hollywood pressuring them. And if you don’t fight back, they will cave! That’s why I’m asking you to call these senators at 201-571-1178 and tell them to oppose any Supreme Court confirmation while Obama is in office.

Let’s keep freedom working on the Supreme Court.

Harry and the man-hater party bitch about no supreme court nominee allowed from the current administration

Unexpected twist in Senate move to ignore Scalia nominee

By Francine Kiefer, Staff writer February 23, 2016

Washington — After a year of relative cooperation in the Senate, severe partisanship has come roaring back over a United States Supreme Court nominee to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

Tuesday’s unanimous recommendation by Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee not to hold a hearing for a potential replacement, and to delay action until the next president, set Democrats on a tear.

They called the move historic, saying it was an example of the far right’s influence, and said it endangered the very system of government set up by the Founding Fathers. Refusing to even meet with a nominee will backfire on Republicans at the ballot box, they predicted.

But the dire warnings also came with a surprise: Neither side expects the political chasm over the issue to significantly affect legislative business for the rest of the year. Bills to overhaul prison sentencing, combat heroin abuse, and reauthorize the Federal Aviation Administration still have a chance of passage, as does a patent bill.

That’s partly because Democrats have announced they will not engage in reprisal obstruction.

“I’m not going to turn into the destruct caucus,” Senate minority leader Harry Reid (D) of Nevada told reporters on Tuesday. “We will do our work,” he said, in answer to a question about whether Democrats would block the spending process to force the Republicans’ hand on a nominee.

“I don’t think [the nomination issue] should affect anything else in the Senate at all,” said Senate Republican conference chairman John Thune (R) of South Dakota. “There’s a lot of interest on both sides in moving bills that we know we have to get done.” The nomination fight “is a separate issue,” he told reporters Tuesday.

The proof of those statements remains to be seen, of course. But there’s another reason that some lawmakers think the nomination debate will not bring Congress to a halt. As Senator Reid acknowledged, there’s no point in Democrats shutting the Senate down procedurally because “there’s nothing to shut down.”

This is a presidential election year and precious little is achieved in such years. Beyond that, some of the few bills in the hopper involve Republican-on-Republican disputes.

For instance, both the House and Senate Judiciary Committees approved bipartisan bills to reduce mandatory minimum sentences for small-time drug offenders last year – but an intraparty disagreement over the need to prove criminal intent is preventing them from advancing to the floor. Conservatives including presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R) of Texas also say the bill is too soft on crime.

Still, not all Democrats believe the nomination tornado will cut a narrow path. It could “make it difficult for ordinary business,” said Senate minority whip Dick Durbin (D) of Illinois. He called it a “historic moment” as Democrats said that never before has a Supreme Court nominee been denied a hearing or a vote on the Senate Judiciary Committee – the only exception being nominees that went directly to confirmation.

Democrats may not have a procedural strategy to force the Republicans’ hand on this, but “we’re not going to let this go away,” Senator Durbin said. The nominee will be sent up by the White House, and he or she will meet with Senate Democrats. “We’ll be discussing that nominee, and we’ll be reminding the American people that the Republicans in the Senate refuse to do their job.”

A majority of Americans want the president to nominate a Supreme Court justice, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll – though the view is largely split along party lines.

Most Republican senators seem unconcerned that their move could cost them in November – though Sen. Mark Kirk (R) of Illinois, the most endangered of the Republican incumbents, has said that he would be willing to vote on a nominee.

Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell (R) of Kentucky, however, said Tuesday that he agreed with the Judiciary Committee's recommendation. “In short, there will not be action taken,” Senator McConnell told reporters. The majority leader also said he would not meet with a nominee.

The reasoning is that a Supreme Court appointment should not be made amid a presidential election.

“A lame-duck president should not be making a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court,” Senator Thune said. Democrats would argue the same if the situation were reversed, Republicans say.

When asked whether Republicans were concerned about political pressure, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R) of Utah said, "I'm not concerned about that.”

As to Democratic charges of obstruction, he said simply, “it’s not obstruction. This is saying that this is so important that it should not be brought up in this messy time, and it ought to be brought up for the next president, whoever that may be.”

Wah Wah. Old Harry Reid didn't mind playing cover for Obama. He didn't mind keeping job creating bills from getting to the floor of the Senate for a vote. He didn't mind obstructing audit the fed,thus subverting the will of the American people. So we are now supposed to drop everything to do the will of old Harry and his man-hating party. Fuck you,Harry. I support what Senator Mitch McConnell is doing. We don't want anything to come from the current administration anywhere near the Supreme Court. There is a vacancy and the next President will nominate someone to fill it.

Remind Senate Republicans to block Obama's SCOTUS nomination

From Freedom Works:

Last Monday, I asked you to tell Mitch McConnell to keep his promise and block any Supreme Court nominee while Obama is in office. And boy did you ever. You’ve helped drive over 15,000 emails to McConnell’s office in just 7 days! But now we’re starting to see some of the entrenched establishment Republicans turn tail and run to side with Harry Reid and the Democrats. This is wrong and we must stop Senate Republicans from surrendering before it’s too late. Help us fight back with a contribution of $5 right now.

Having the ability to keep Obama’s liberal nominee out of the Supreme Court is critical to our country’s freedom. That’s why FreedomWorks is preparing to launch a massive grassroots campaign to make sure Senate Republicans don’t cave to Harry Reid and the Democrats. We know some of these spineless Senators can’t be trusted, and that’s why we’ve got to hit them with everything we’ve got. But if we’re going to make this campaign successful, we need your help. We need to raise $150,000 in the next 48 hours, but we won’t meet our goal unless we have your support. That’s why I’m asking you to chip in $5 right now.

If Obama gets away with his Supreme Court scheme, we could be saying hello to Justice Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch. And that means we’d lose every major case heard by the Court for decades to come. The Constitution would be ripped to shreds, our freedoms would vanish, and there would be nothing you could do to stop them.

If Obama gets another liberal on the Court, his “fundamental transformation” of America will be complete. And he’s using his friends in DC and in the media to bully these Senate Republicans into caving to his demands. That’s why we’ve got to keep the pressure on these senators. FreedomWorks is prepared to see this through until Obama’s out of office. But we won’t be able to do it without your support. Can we count on you to help us meet our goal? Donate $5 right now to help us keep the fight alive and stop the Supreme Court from turning into a den of radical liberalism.

Freedom only works if you’re willing to fight for it. And now is that time.

Urge the Senate not to confirm a Supreme Court nominee

From Freedom Works:

Justice Antonin Scalia was a champion of freedom and the Constitution. He dedicated his life to protecting your rights and the Founders’ vision for the country. His intellect and devotion to the Constitution were truly awe-inspiring. And for that we are forever in his debt.

But Obama has already announced that he plans to change all of that. The most important thing you and I can do to celebrate Justice Scalia's life and accomplishments is to protect his remarkable legacy. That's why I’m asking you to sign our petition to tell the Senate to block any Supreme Court nominee while Obama is in office.

Obama’s got less than a year to finish his “fundamental transformation” of America, and filling Justice Scalia’s seat with a radical liberal would complete it. And if that happens, we’d lose every major case heard by the Court for decades to come. The Constitution would be ripped to shreds and our freedoms would vanish into thin air. That’s why it’s crucial that you sign our petition to tell the Senate to stop Obama’s Supreme Court scheme.

It’s up to you to keep freedom working on the Supreme Court.

Say anything anti-islamic and go to jail



That's right. If H.Res 569 becomes law anyone criticizing muslims are going to jail. Nevermind the First Amendment nevermind the Constitution only Sharia matters. Western values are gone. Democracy is dying. What are you going to do about it? If you are one of the sheep do nothing. It looks like the democrats are the sponsors of this bill. Like I said if you don't care do nothing,live under Sharia. If you do care then contact your representative and tell them to oppose H.Res 569. Do it before this becomes the law of the land and we still have a choice in the matter.

The Time Warner merger with Charter Communications will destroy competition

From Open Media:

Big Telecom is trying to get even bigger… and customers will pay the price. Charter Communications, America’s third-biggest cable company, wants to take over Time Warner Cable, the second-largest.

If this $90 billion deal is approved by the FCC, "Mega Charter" and Comcast together would control the telecom connections to nearly 8 out of every 10 U.S. homes.

Let that sink in: two cable companies, wielding monopolistic control over your Internet service.

If they succeed, they’ll be able to raise your cable bill even higher, because you’ll have nowhere else to turn. We can't let this happen. To fight back, your OpenMedia team has joined forces with our friends at Demand Progress (and others!) to stop this.

You probably haven't heard a lot of talk of this deal, which pleases Charter.

Charter saw how spectacularly Comcast failed at their attempt to takeover Time Warner, and so they're pulling out all the stops to sell a pretty picture to decision-makers at the FCC.1

That's all well and good until you look a little closer. Existing Time Warner Cable customers would have to shell out more for the kind of broadband plans that Charter provides.

And the staggering debt that Mega Charter would take on to acquire Time Warner Cable is troubling if they're really committed to the high costs of building more broadband in rural areas.

Big Cable has repeatedly shown they can't be trusted, because they don't have to win your trust when they corner the market in your community. Tell the FCC to stand with Internet customers and oppose this deal. (We'll also forward your comment to the Senate.)

The truth is that in the long run, this merger will leave people like you with the cost — making our bills go up, flattening the quality of service, and fattening the pockets of people like Charter's Thomas Rutledge and Time Warner Cable's Robert D. Marcus — both of whom would receive more than $100 million in golden parachutes and payouts.2

Malone knows how to close a cable company merger, and he has the influence and money to do it.3

We've got to show the FCC that they must oppose this merger if they want to cement a legacy of broadband access and competition. Will you send a comment to the FCC today?

Together, we can stop Big Cable from getting even bigger.

Thanks.

Don't let Obama gut right to work laws

From The National Right To Work Committee:

Just last week, West Virginia became the fourth state in four years to adopt Right to Work. The worker freedom movement is growing, and momentum is on our side.

But the lawyers on Barack Obama's National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) are taking revenge with a scheme to gut all 26 state Right to Work laws.

From the outrageous persecution of Boeing for creating jobs in Right to Work South Carolina to ambushing workers with quick-snap unionization elections, the Obama Labor Board has rammed through one union-boss power grab after another.

I've been warning concerned citizens like you for two years that the worst may be yet to come, now that Barack Obama is no longer accountable to the American people.

Thanks to the surrender of a few short-sighted Republicans in the U.S. Senate in 2013, Barack Obama has a fully-stocked NLRB stacked with a gaggle of union lawyers to do Big Labor's bidding.

And now the Obama Labor Board is seizing that opportunity and preparing to overturn more than 60 years of precedent and ignore the plain language of federal and state law.

This means all the strides the Right to Work movement has made to free workers in 26 states could go up in flames!

Now has never been a more important time to go on the OFFENSE and take the fight directly to Big Labor and their cohorts on Capitol Hill.

It's vital your Committee has the resources to force a roll-call vote on the National Right to Work Act.

An up-or-down vote in Congress will let the American people know who stands with us -- and who stands with Obama and his stacked National Labor Relations Board on opposing the issue of worker freedom.

But the deadline is Thursday at midnight.

That's why I urgently need you to chip in $50 to our Cosponsor Push program right away.

Our cosponsor targets will be flooded with the voices of thousands of pro-worker freedom Americans like you, urging them to add their names to the National Right to Work Act.

The Cosponsor Push plan includes:

>>>An expanded email, direct mail, and telephone campaign urging constituents to contact their congressmen and U.S. Senators.

>>>Targeted Facebook, Youtube and Google ads in select target districts.

>>>Delivery of additional petitions collected from you and your fellow Right to Work supporters.

Your Committee is throwing everything we have to force a roll-call vote on the National Right to Work Act.

With everything at stake, you and I cannot hold back.

You know the Union Bosses and Obama's Labor Board won't.

That's why your Committee absolutely must raise $40,000 by February 18th to flood the halls of Congress with hundreds of thousands of petitions, emails and phone calls.

And I need your help to make it happen. Will you chip in $50?

If $50 is just too much, please consider chipping in with a gift of $25 or even $10.

You and I cannot afford to let this opportunity slip through our fingers.

With the Obama Labor Board working to undercut the 25 current Right to Work states and force nonmembers to give up a portion of their paycheck, now is the time to know which legislators stand with you and me -- and the nearly 80% of Americans who support worker freedom.

Just think of the price the union bosses and their allies will pay once the American people focus on the fact that:

***Millions of workers are forced to pay tribute to a union boss just to keep their jobs -- money they earn to feed their families, educate their children and support their churches and communities;

***Big Labor’s 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;

***Billions of forced-dues dollars bankroll radical, tax-and-spend politicians like Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, resulting in out-of-control spending and skyrocketing debt; and

***Union toughs terrorize workers and communities with violent strikes -- where they get away with beatings, arson -- even murder.

This rampant abuse of power needs to be stopped.

And with the Obama Labor Board working to gut and destroy the laws in 26 current Right to Work states, there has never been a more important time than now to force a roll-call vote on the National Right to Work Act.

Having droves of Senators sign on as National Right to Work Act cosponsors will prove to forced-dues partisans in Congress and the Obama Labor Board that they won’t get away with trying to KILL Right to Work.

But it’s up to you and me to make sure the union bosses’ pals in Congress don’t wiggle off the hook.

So please act TODAY!

The deadline is Thursday at midnight. Please act at once.

For Worker Freedom,

Mark Mix
President

P.S. Obama Labor Board is seizing that opportunity and preparing to overturn more than 60 years of precedent and ignore the plain language of federal and state law.

This means all the strides the Right to Work movement has made to free workers in 26 states could go up in flames!

It's vital your Committee has the resources to force a roll-call vote on the National Right to Work Act.

An up-or-down vote in Congress will let the American people know who stands with us -- and who opposes the issue of worker freedom.

Make Senator Mitch McConnell keep his word on Supreme Court replacement

From Freedom Works:

Instead of allowing the nation to mourn Justice Scalia’s passing, Obama was already in front of the cameras demanding the Senate confirm whatever liberal justice he nominates. This is wrong, and it proves how desperate he is to pack the court with more liberal justices. Tell Mitch McConnell to keep his promise and block any Supreme Court nominee while Obama is in office.

Another liberal on the Court, would complete Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America. We would lose every major case heard by the Court for years to come. You can’t let that happen, the Constitution simply can’t afford it. That’s why it’s so crucial that you contact Mitch McConnell today and tell him to block any Supreme Court nominee while Obama is in office.

It’s up to you to keep freedom working on the Supreme Court.

Preserve Net Neutrality oppose zero rating

From CREDO:

The Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Net Neutrality rules are less than a year old, but some companies are already coming up with creative ways to sneak past them.

Some of the same companies that fought Net Neutrality now offer programs that exempt some services, but not others, from monthly caps on their customers’ broadband Internet usage.

These are backdoor attempts to undermine Net Neutrality by giving preference to some sources of content over others. The FCC needs to step in now and put a stop to them.

Tell the Federal Communications Commission: Stop the sneak attack on Net Neutrality. Click here to sign the petition.

Companies like AT&T,1 T-Mobile,2 Verizon3 and Comcast4 have all recently introduced programs that favor some online services over others by exempting them from their customers’ monthly data caps, a practice known as zero-rating. By discriminating against sources of content that aren’t exempted, zero-rating jeopardizes the free and open nature of the Internet.

Zero-rating isn’t just a threat to Net Neutrality in the United States. Just this week, India banned zero-rating after a long battle with Facebook over the company's efforts to provide free access to Facebook.com and a small selection of other websites, which would have severely limited the Internet experience of hundreds of millions of people.5

Zero-rating gives a small number of companies too much power to shape the Internet that is available to users, and it discourages innovation by making it more difficult for smaller players in the market to compete.

The FCC is looking into concerns about zero-rating right now and has requested information from some of the companies employing the practice,6 but it hasn’t yet taken action to stop to zero-rating. It took millions of us speaking out to win Net Neutrality protections. We can’t afford to let corporations use zero-rating to undermine them.

Tell the Federal Communications Commission: Don’t let corporations undermine Net Neutrality. Click here to sign the petition.

Persuade Marco Rubio to support traditional marriage

From Public Advocate:


(Public Advocate Signs Causing A Stir At A Marco Rubio Event)

I want to wish you a very happy and special Valentine's Day.

Just last weekend, I welcomed the radical Homosexual Lobby's special Valentine -- Senator Marco Rubio -- to New Hampshire.

You see, for weeks Public Advocate has been exposing Rubio's ties to a billionaire pro-Homosexual Lobby donor and urging pro-Family Americans to encourage Rubio to cut ties with the donor.

But Rubio's refusal to return homosexual "marriage" activist and billionaire Paul Singer's massive financial contribution is just the tip of the iceberg.

It was reported just a few days ago that Rubio's deputy campaign manager, Rich Beeson, signed a writ of certiorari encouraging the U.S. Supreme Court to legalize homosexual "marriage."

Rubio's decision to hire a deputy campaign manager who directly helped usher in homosexual "marriage" concerns me.

Senator Marco Rubio could easily repudiate the radical Homosexual Lobby and go on the record for supporting Traditional Values by filling out and returning his Public Advocate presidential survey.

But he continues to ignore the calls from thousands of pro-Family Americans instead.

That's why I hope you chip in $10 or $25 to help Public Advocate mobilize thousands of pro-Family Americans to call on Rubio -- and ALL the presidential candidates -- to return their surveys.

You and I both saw the impact of our grassroots program in Iowa.

We exposed Hillary Clinton's betrayal of Traditional Values to thousands of pro-Family Americans.

We even pressured one presidential candidate into publicly supporting Real Marriage.

Within just a day of running our Facebook and Google ads exposing candidates for not filling out their surveys, Donald Trump came out swinging against homosexual "marriage."

Trump attacked the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to override the authority of the states on the issue of Real Marriage.

And he said that a Trump presidency would allow him to appoint judges who "think differently" than those that ruled against Real Marriage.

When pressed, he indicated that he would nominate judges who supported restoring Real Marriage laws in America.

And last fall, when Public Advocate launched our "Stop the Gender Insanity" program, presidential candidate and U.S. Senator Ted Cruz bluntly called transgenderism "lunacy."

These are not merely coincidences.

It's a direct result of your support and Public Advocate's tactics.

So please, help us keep the pro-Family pressure on these presidential candidates by chipping in $10 or $25 right away.

Thank you for all that you do!

For the Family,

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

P.S. I just got back from New Hampshire where I continued to expose presidential candidates for refusing to stand for Traditional Values.

Help me keep the pressure on until they fill out their Public Advocate surveys and continue fueling our grassroots campaign by chipping in $10 or $25 immediately.

The consumer will lose if the Charter-Time Warner merger goes through

From Free Press Action Fund:

This week, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler admitted that he “has not done enough” to encourage competition between cable giants.1

We appreciate the chairman's sentiments — and have something he can do right now: Block the $90 billion merger between Charter and Time Warner Cable.

In fact, Wheeler has all the power he needs to stop this deal, a move that would encourage competition rather than crush it.

Take action now: Tell Chairman Wheeler to stop Charter.

If this merger is approved, Charter and Comcast would offer service to nearly 80 percent of U.S. homes.

Together they would have unprecedented control over our ability to connect and communicate. Without any other meaningful competition, they’d be able to charge us whatever they want for our connections. Higher prices would leave even more people on the wrong side of the digital divide — hitting low-income communities of color the hardest.

Wheeler knows "digital divide" isn't just some wonky term — it’s a chasm that affects people's day-to-day lives.2

Here’s the question: Will Wheeler do more to encourage competition — or will he stand with Big Cable? The choice is his.

Tell Wheeler to stop Charter before it gobbles up the competition, raises rates and makes it even harder for people to get online.

Thanks for all that you do—

Mary Alice, Candace, Lucia and the rest of the Free Press team
freepress.net

P.S. Rumor has it that the FCC could vote on Charter’s takeover of Time Warner Cable as soon as March. Your voice is needed right now: Tell Chairman Wheeler to block the merger. Thank you!

Protect your rights help reelect anti-establishment Congressman Tim Huelskamp

From Freedom Works:

The time for talk is over. It’s 2016, and that means it’s time to put up or shut up. It’s time to fight for real conservatives like Tim Huelskamp. That’s what real conservatives do; we fight for those who’ve fought for us. And that’s why you and I must stand with Rep. Huelskamp. FreedomWorks PAC is putting our money where our mouth is, and I hope you will too. I’m not asking you to donate to us. I’m asking you to donate to Rep. Huelskamp, and I promise you that every dollar you donate will go directly to his campaign. That’s why I’m asking you to chip in just $5 to Rep. Huelskamp today.

The establishment wants you to sit behind your computer and do nothing. They want you to keep scrolling and ignore this email. They’re counting on you to abandon Tim Huelskamp, because that’s the only chance they have at beating him. Rep. Huelskamp’s fought the establishment before and he’s won. That’s why they want him gone. They despise him because he’s a real conservative who doesn’t just talk the talk, he walks the walk. He’s got a 98% lifetime score with FreedomWorks, and you don’t get that by being an establishment hack. Pitch in $5 to keep a real conservative in Congress today.

Tim Huelskamp will never stop fighting for the values we share. He’s proven that every year he’s been in congress. That’s why he’s got such a big target on his back. And that’s why the Washington insiders want to take him out.

If you sit there and do nothing, the K-Street liberals will win. Government will keep growing, your taxes will increase, our freedoms will shrink, and we will lose the few conservatives we have left in Congress. And you’ll have no one to blame but yourself.

Only you can stop that from happening. And you can do it by donating just $5 to Rep. Huelskamp’s campaign today.

For Freedom,

Adam Brandon
Chairman, FreedomWorks PAC

PS – Remember, every dollar you donate will go directly to Rep. Huelskamp’s campaign. And in a race this close, ever dollar will count.

Put pressure on Congressman Paul Ryan to Audit The Fed

From Campaign For Liberty:

It’s time to MAKE ‘EM PAY.

On January 12, 2016, members of BOTH parties in the United States Senate resorted to a filibuster to stop my son, Senator Rand Paul, from passing my Audit the Fed bill.

7 U.S. Senators who are facing reelection in 2016 chose to stand with secretive Fed banksters instead of the nearly 75% of Americans who believe this rogue institution should be audited and exposed.

I know these Senators are betting that the memory of this vote will be overtaken by the presidential race.

They’re betting you and I will just give up and go home -- even after falling only 7 votes short.

But with your help, I’m about to show them they’re WRONG, WRONG, WRONG.

In just a moment, I'll give you a link to find your special, personalized petitions to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and your U.S. Representative insisting on House passage of Audit the Fed.

You see, if you and I can follow up forcing a Senate vote on Audit the Fed with passage through the U.S. House for the third Congress in a row, it will dramatically ramp up pressure on the U.S. Senate...

...Maybe just enough to make the 7 vote difference next time around.

So please help me send a LOUD-AND-CLEAR message to every member of Congress:

“GET THE JOB DONE ON AUDIT THE FED -- OR RISK FACING THE MUSIC AT THE BALLOT BOX.”

The fact is, if you and I are going to maintain any semblance of the liberty and prosperity that’s long been every American’s birthright, sending this message is simply not optional.

The Federal Reserve’s disastrous print-now, ask-questions-later policies are destroying the American economy.

Our middle class is being gutted before our eyes.

Poverty is on the rise.

While Washington D.C.’s well-connected corporate fat cats and the Fed’s hedge fund billionaire buddies continue to rake it in like never before, the American median household income is still far short of where it was -- even at the end of the last century.

And while our federal government continues to release “official” unemployment rates in the single digits, they’re not even bothering to count those who have given up looking for work!

Now, studies show 37% of able-bodied Americans aren’t even in the labor force!

It’s no accident. It’s all due to Washington, D.C.’s out-of-control spending on outrageous boondoggles like ObamaCare, which has left our nation $19 TRILLION in debt.

But if you scratch the surface, you’ll see the Federal Reserve -- which prints money out of thin air to pay the bills when sky-high taxation and borrowing don’t make ends meet -- is the true linchpin of Big Government.

That’s why it’s never been more important that you and I force passage of Audit the Fed and finally show the American people the Federal Reserve system leads to:

*** Constant economic crises. Centrally planned interest rates and money manipulation lead to one economic bubble after another -- just as we saw in the housing crisis and as we’re seeing now in the U.S. stock market;

*** The destruction of the middle class. As the cost of everyday necessities soar, those who are NOT on the government dole are forced to make do with less as the value of their money sinks;

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

In fact, a past limited audit authorized by the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act revealed that the Federal Reserve committed over $16 trillion to foreign central banks and politically-connected U.S. companies from 2007-2010.

That’s more than four times the annual budget of the United States!

Imagine what a full audit would reveal about the Fed’s “special” relationships and secret deals with Big Banks, Wall Street firms, large corporations, and foreign central banks!

Please sign your petition to Speaker Paul Ryan and your U.S. Representative demanding they Audit the Fed right away.

The good news is, your action is proven to make a direct difference. Grassroots muscle from patriots like you from all over the country put the Fed issue on the political map.

It’s the reason Campaign for Liberty got this critical legislation passed through the U.S. House with HUGE bipartisan majorities during the past two Congresses.

It's the reason we were able to overcome an all-out Federal Reserve public relations blitz and force Audit the Fed on the U.S. Senate's calendar for a public, roll call vote.

It's the reason we were able to get 53 votes -- even with three senators failing to show up!

Make no mistake. You and I are getting results.

BIG results.

Each and every one of these milestones was a major, historic victory.

Today, we’re closer than ever to finally EXPOSING the Federal Reserve and striking at the very heart of the Washington, D.C. Big Government Leviathan.

But what you and I do right now may be the most important.

With the presidential race raging, keeping Audit the Fed at the forefront of the American political debate is crucial.

Of course, after this U.S. Senate vote, I know many members of Congress – in both the U.S. House and Senate – think they’re done with Audit the Fed.

I want to show them that if they REFUSE to pass my bill this Congress, they could face a buzz saw at the ballot box from the nearly 75% of Americans who believe the Federal Reserve should be audited.

That means generating a massive grassroots outpouring of support from good folks like you, insisting on House passage of Audit the Fed NOW!

So please sign your petition to Speaker Paul Ryan and your U.S. Representative demanding they Audit the Fed right away.

If we can pass Audit the Fed through the U.S. House again under the new Speaker, Paul Ryan, it will only increase the pressure on the U.S. Senate.

And with the November elections rapidly approaching, every U.S. Senator who dared to vote against Audit the Fed will understand they must change and vote to EXPOSE the Fed -- or they’ll risk paying the ultimate political price.

That’s why I’m counting on your IMMEDIATE action.

Your generosity today is also critical to helping C4L turn our focus to the U.S. House with everything from hard-hitting mail, email, and social media to Internet ads, a phone mobilization campaign, and even TV ads (if I can raise the resources).

The good news is, in an election year like this one, politicians listen a little better than they do at other times. So everything you and I do right now could have enormous impact.

Remember, your action is PROVEN to make a difference. So what you decide to do (or not do) right now will have an enormous impact on this battle.

I hope you’ll go all in.

I hope that, in addition to signing your petitions, you’ll agree to a generous contribution of $50 right away.

I know that’s probably a big stretch.

But every dollar is so crucial to finally winning this battle.

Even if President Obama ultimately vetoes, that’s still a major win for you and me. With the Audit the Fed issue at the forefront of the presidential race, any candidate who says they won’t sign Audit the Fed would be toast!

Of course, if $50 is just too much, please agree to $25 or at least $10 TODAY.

I know I've asked a lot from you. The truth is, words can’t get close to the appreciation I truly feel for all you’ve done for liberty.

But this is a critical moment. Please come through for me by signing your petition to Speaker Paul Ryan and your U.S. Representative to Audit the Fed, and then make your most generous contribution of $50, $25, or at least $10.

Thank you for everything!

For Liberty,

Ron Paul
Chairman

P.S. The statists mounted a filibuster to derail passage of Audit the Fed in the Senate. But if you and I can pass Audit the Fed through the U.S. House, it will dramatically increase the pressure on the bad apples in the Senate to vote to pass Audit the Fed.

Please sign your petition to Speaker Paul Ryan and your U.S. Representative demanding they vote on Audit the Fed.

And after you’ve signed, please chip in your most generous contribution of $50, $25, or even $10 IMMEDIATELY to help Campaign for Liberty mobilize like-minded Americans.

Gay Bill of Special Rights threatens Religious Liberty

From Public Advocate:

"Historic."

"Comprehensive."

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

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

That's because Republicans are already betraying Traditional Values to support the Gay Bill of Special Rights.

You see, homosexual Congressman David Cicilline (D-RI) and Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) have introduced the most aggressive version of this bill I've ever seen.

Their bills, H.R. 3185 and S. 1858, will create a special employment status for homosexuals and transsexuals.

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

And now Republican Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL) is being praised by the radical Homosexual Lobby for betraying pro-Family Americans.

That's because Sen. Kirk has pledged his alliance with President Obama in lobbying for the Gay Bill of Special Rights.

Just last month, I predicted the radical Homosexual Lobby would target vulnerable Republicans running for re-election.

These radicals are desperate to put the Gay Bill of Special Rights on President Obama's desk in his last year in office.

I've been fighting their tactics for over 35 years as President of Public Advocate.

Now that Obama has entered his final year as president, they will use every dirty trick in their playbook.

With Sen. Kirk's betrayal making him the first Republican co-sponsoring the newest Gay Bill of Special Rights...

...I'm afraid other Republicans will also seek praise from the pro-homosexual news media while soliciting millions in campaign donations from the Hollywood elites.

That's why Public Advocate must mobilize every pro-Family American to fight back against Obama and the Homosexual Lobby's radical Agenda.

I'm counting on you to sign your petition against the Gay Bill of Special Rights, along with a generous contribution of $15, $10 or $5 right away.

Our sacred right to Religious Liberty is hanging by a thread.

This latest Gay Bill of Special Rights would force every business -- even faith-based businesses -- to comply with the radical Homosexual Agenda.

These bills are usually filed under the guise of employee discrimination protection or the misnamed "Equality Act."

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

Christian daycares could be forced to hire transsexuals.

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

Clearly, this bill is designed to permanently end Religious Liberty.

That's why I need you to sign your petition defending Religious Liberty, along with a generous contribution of $15, $10 or $5 right away.

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

Unfortunately, 212 members of Congress already signed on as co-sponsors of the Gay Bill of Special Rights.

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

It first passed the House (H.R. 3685) in 2007, thanks in part to current House Speaker Paul Ryan's proud Republican support.

And it passed again, this time in the Senate (S. 815), in 2013.

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

Against all odds, we've successfully made sure these bills never reached the President's desk in the past.

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

We have a small window of opportunity before this bill reaches Barack Obama's desk.

Please sign your petition right now and tell your Senators and Congressman that you are against the Gay Bill of Special Rights.

Now that President Obama is making history by becoming the first sitting president to endorse the Gay Bill of Special Rights, our back is up against the wall.

And Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already made statements showing signs of surrender on various issues in the Homosexual Lobby's radical Agenda.

Now, Speaker Paul Ryan has even more power to persuade other Republicans to join him in his support for the Gay Bill of Special Rights than when he voted for it in 2007.

Ryan and the radical Homosexual Lobby will tell pro-Family politicians that they need to support this bill to retain their office.

The truth is, after Americans witnessed pro-Family politicians sell out and support the Gay Bill of Special Rights in 2007, they felt disenchanted.

This allowed the radical Homosexual Lobby to succeed in electing President Obama as their leader.

That's why I'm counting on you to defend religious Liberty right away.

When I flood Washington, D.C. with signed petitions from you and other pro-Family Americans, they will have no choice but to listen to us or pay a high price, either in their primary races or this November.

And only through your generous donation will I be able to compete with the radical homosexual tidal wave of special interest cash.

I promise to be a steward of your generous gift by using my 35 years of experience in defeating the Gay Bill of Special Rights.

But please send your generous donation of $15, $10 or $5 as soon as possible.

The Homosexual Lobby marches through the halls of Congress every day.

They twist arms and make campaign promises to politicians who will cave to their radical Agenda.

It's important Public Advocate launches our proven grassroots program to mobilize and recruit pro-Family opposition to the Gay Bill of Special Rights.

With your help, we can show the politicians seeking to destroy Religious Liberty there is a tidal wave of pro-Family Americans who oppose the Gay Bill of Special Rights.

And we can block any other pro-Family politician from joining Speaker Paul Ryan and Sen. Mark Kirk in betraying Religious Liberty.

So please, sign your petition against the Gay Bill of Special Rights, along with a generous contribution of $15, $10 or $5 right away.

We can't afford to lose any ground in this battle.

Thank you and God Bless.

For the Family,


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

P.S. This election year has set the stage for an all-out showdown in Congress to pass the Gay Bill of Special Rights.

Obama's recent comments in the pro-homosexual magazine "Out" proves he will double-down on the radical Homosexual Lobby's efforts to make sure it reaches his desk before his final year is over.

And with House Speaker Paul Ryan's history of supporting the Gay Bill of Special Rights, along with that of other Republicans like Senator Mark Kirk, I'm afraid they may be successful this year!

That's why I need your help in stopping the radical Homosexual Lobby from lying to -- and outright buying -- vulnerable pro-Family politicians seeking re-election to pass this bill.

Please sign your petition against the Gay Bill of Special Rights right away and please give your generous donation of $15, $10 or $5. Thank you so much.

New York wants to ban full disk encryption

From Fight For The Future:

This is ridiculous — New York wants to ban iPhones and the latest Androids because they're too hard to break into.

Take action now to protect privacy everywhere and tell New York to keep their hands off our phones.

Phones get stolen all the time. Buying a new one is expensive enough. But your data falling into the wrong hands can cost much, much more.

Think about it. Whoever stole your phone has a copy of your digital life. They could empty your savings, ruin your credit, or steal workplace files and cost you your job. Just one risque photo could become a life-altering nightmare... especially for teachers, young people or public figures. This happens, and it’s awful.

Thankfully, engineers have a solution to this problem: “full disk encryption". It gives strong protection and it’s easy. You pick a good password, and your phone uses some epic math to protect your data every day. That’s it.

Full disk encryption is so great, we even ran a campaign for it: Reset the Net. And it's winning! The iPhone–and the latest version of Android–make full phone encryption standard for everyone. Data will be safe, even when phones get stolen.

But the same encryption that keeps you safe makes the FBI furious. When they seize a phone, encryption makes it much harder for them to break in. In some rare cases, it’s impossible, but most of the time it’s just more work.

The FBI is pushing states to make “full disk encryption” illegal because they want to make it easier to break into someone's phone.

The problem is that making it easier for the FBI to access the data on a phone means it's WAY easier for anyone with malicious intent to access your data, too. Their "solution" to keeping you safe and cracking down on crime actually puts you at risk.

Take action now to protect encryption and make sure hundreds of millions of innocent people are never exposed to thieves and stalkers, just to speed up a miniscule number of FBI investigations.

The FBI is losing this battle at the federal level, because experts agree that banning encryption would be terrible for public safety, since it would make phones easier for anyone to hack into. So the FBI is being sneaky. They know that just one big state could possibly tip the scales.

If New York bans encryption, Apple, Google, and other companies will have to decide to either make a special phone to sell just in New York and swallow that logistical nightmare, or they'll lower their encryption standards on the devices they sell everywhere to match New York's standard. We can't let that happen — especially because if the FBI wins this case, there's no reason they won't come for our computers next.

We need to stop this now, before it goes any further.

Tell New York State that encryption keeps our data safe, and that banning full disk encryption is a threat to public safety.

Full disk encryption is one of the security steps we use at Fight for the Future to keep our data safe–and yours too. I’m using it right now. We see it as our responsibility to you, and really it’s common sense. Many companies and organizations have this policy, and if they don’t yet, they should!

This New York bill would make us, and millions of other organizations much more vulnerable to attacks.

We have some great follow-up planned for this petition, and will be working to stop similar legislation that's already being proposed in California. So please, let’s kick this off right, and bury the politicians behind this law in petition signatures, from people who understand just how important encryption is to privacy and public safety.

If you want to do more, share the page (or this email) with as many people as possible, or support our work by becoming a member. We can win this, but only if we really try.

Sincerely,

Holmes Wilson

P.S. We’re also planning on-the-ground protests against these laws in New York, San Francisco, and possibly London as well. If you’d like to help with those in any way, or if you have any special skills to contribute, email holmes@fightforthefuture.org and let us know a bit about your skills and experience. (And thanks!)

TPP is up for a vote in New Zealand

From The Daily Kos:

The corporate Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is scheduled to be signed in New Zealand this week—on Thursday, February 4th.

They want us to think it’s inevitable, but we haven’t even been consulted yet. Sign the petition urging the Trade Ministers: “Do not sign the TPP!”

The TPP is a dangerous blow to American jobs, worker safety & environmental protections. That’s why we need to stop it, before it becomes a “take-it-or-leave-it” proposal.

Sign the petition by Daily Kos and a coalition of partners: Do not sign the TPP.

Keep fighting,
Paul Hogarth, Daily Kos
