RANDPAC # Cut Their Card


14 August 2017 

Petition: # Cut Their Card 

Patriot 
In a few short weeks, the United States Government will run up against its DEBT LIMIT.
Already, the alarmists are screeching about what will happen if it is not extended without condition.
Don’t believe them.
This isn’t about government shutting down.  This isn’t about closing the doors of any agency. Think of it more like this – it is like we can cut off the federal government’s credit card.
Cut it up, throw it away, and return to fiscal sanity.
Will you join my crusade to CUT THEIR CARD?  Add Your Name

Why is it so vital that we don’t allow the establishment and the big spenders of both parties to simply push through more and more debt without reforms?
  • Our current government debt is $19.8 trillion  
  • Taxpayers ow $60,956 per person
  • Each US Household is on the hook for $157,727
  • Our debt stands at 103% of the yearly gross domestic product
  • Our debt is now 550% of annual federal tax revenue
This is not sustainable. And there’s only one real answer. CUT UP THEIR CREDIT CARD, NOW!Add Your Name
Too often, the debt ceiling increases are passed with little notice. One time in recent memory, Conservatives in Congress forced the issue, and though we didn’t get everything we fought for, following the Debt Ceiling sequester of 2011, federal spending went DOWN for 3 years straight, for the first time in anyone’s memory.

We must demand reforms. A balanced budget amendment. A plan for a short-term 5 year balanced budget. Reforms to entitlement programs that are trillions short.
And now is the time to demand them. NO REFORMS, NO DEBT CEILING increase.

They’ll scream and howl, but the fact is we can win this fight if we engage the American people NOW, before Congress comes back in a few weeks.
So please sign my CUT THEIR CARD petition now.  And please consider helping RANDPAC spread the word to millions more Americans. I’m prepared to go all-out to CUT THEIR CARD if you will help today

  • RANDPAC will contact millions more Americans to bring them to this vital fight for fiscal sanity.
  • We will only support candidates who will fight for real reform and support balanced budgets and CUTTING THEIR CREDIT CARD.
  • RANDPAC will purchase ads to spread the word and put the heat on current members to do the right thing.
I have to plan for all of this right away, so please sign your CUT THEIR CARD petition and make your contribution to help RANDPAC today!
Thank you for all you do for Liberty,
Rand Paul MD

RANDPAC - Repeal Obamacare Now



28 July 2017  
Last night in the middle of the night a small handful of my colleagues broke their word to the voters and voted to keep Obamacare intact. 
I voted for repeal last night and multiple times this week. In fact, I was the author of the clean repeal bill that fell just short, and I pushed for the version that failed by just one vote last night. One vote.  
The media thinks we are going to give up now that we lost by one vote to repeal Obamacare.  
I don’t plan to give up, and I hope you won’t either. 
We can’t afford to.  Obamacare has cost us too much.  
As a career physician, no one knows the dangers of Obamacare better than I do and no one opposes it more strongly. 
That’s because Obamacare:      
  • has caused massive premium increase
  • costs a trillion dollars in new taxes to pay for it
  • forces insurers out of the market  
It must end, and we must keep up the fight until we do.  My colleagues in the House are going to push again.  I’m afraid though that my senate colleagues may not act if they don’t hear from you.  
Tell them failure is not an option and that keeping their word is the only path forward.  
Tell them you’ll not rest until Obamacare is repealed. I know I won’t.  
So please sign your petition today – and help RANDPAC contact millions more people to spread the word and let the senate know we demand they keep fighting.  
Thanks for all you do,   
Rand Paul MD

RPI's Peace and Prosperity Conference 2017


RPI's Peace and Prosperity 2017 Conference: 'Where We're Going and How We'll Get There!' 

By: Danial Mcadams | 20 July 2017

We are witnessing a fascinating phenomenon that may signal that the neoconservative movement is nearing its "sell-by" date. As Glenn Greenwald documents in a recent article, there is a mass migration of neoconservative leaders back to the Democratic Party they left in the early 1970s. Why did they leave in the first place? The McGovernite peaceniks were destroying their party and they saw much potential in a Republican Party that had swung back and forth from the non-interventionism of the Taft wing to the big government, national-security-state Republicanism of the Buckleyites and others. 

What does all of this mean for us? Opportunity. 

The interest in Ron Paul's foreign policy of non-intervention in the affairs of others, a defense of this nation, and an end to the trillion dollar military empire overseas is growing daily. The readership at the Ron Paul Institute website is up and the viewership of our Ron Paul Liberty Report continues to rapidly increase.

Did you know the United States spends twelve times more per person on its military than China? And next year's military budget is getting a huge bump-up from Congress. Something is clearly wrong.

It's great to sit in front of our computers reading important articles and watching informative videos, but we also need to connect with other like-minded people. We need to hear from those who are out there in the front lines. Their insights are so valuable. A movement is built on human contact and connections.

And we also need to show the world that there is a great interest in a foreign policy of minding our own business. Nothing gets that message across like a packed conference in Washington, DC!

On September 9th at the Washington Dulles Airport Marriott we will again make history, as the Ron Paul Institute holds its second major foreign policy conference. Last year's sold out event was also seen by millions on CSPAN and enjoyed by so many who came out to join us.

Last year's attendees urged us through the year to do it again and we have listened to them!

What's on the agenda this year? Well there is much we are still working on but I can let you know that Ron Paul and Lew Rockwell will be on the stage in September. It is always so amazing to have them both in a room and I can't wait to see them together again.

Dr. Paul will have much to say on his new book -- which takes a penetrating look at his Liberty Movement ten years on -- and much to say about where we need to focus for the future. Likewise we are so grateful to Lew Rockwell for again joining us and providing us with his words of wisdom.

I am super excited about a whistleblowers' roundtable that we are organizing for the event. The truth will set us free and it is whistleblowers who risk their lives and careers to bring us the truth! You are going to be surprised at who will join us for this. 

This year we want to focus particularly on two things: making connections and taking action. The reason we get together is of course to hear the brilliant insights of our speakers. But we also need to build our own networks and coordinate ways to take action to promote our Peace and Prosperity agenda. 

I really want to encourage you to get your tickets to this exciting conference early, as the venue has a limited capacity, we have reserved the entire ballroom, and we expect to sell out far in advance of the conference date! We would really hate to see you miss the event of the year for those of us who believe in peace and prosperity.

Did you already buy your tickets? Get an amazing rate at the hotel especially for conference-goers!

So what are you waiting for? Get your tickets and join hundreds of other friends of peace and liberty in Washington, DC, this September!

Repeal ObamaCare Now!


23 July 2017

PETITION: Repeal Obamacare Now

Dear Patriot,

Our battle to repeal ObamaCare once and for all has not been easy.

For the past several weeks, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has tried to ram through a bill that doesn’t come close to being the repeal we’ve been promised for over seven years.

Finally, Sen. McConnell is prepared to bring the ObamaCare repeal bill that passed both houses of Congress in 2015 to the Senate floor.
 
And since it passed the Senate less than two years ago, you would think it would have no problem passing now, especially since Republicans have been running on full repeal since the day ObamaCare was passed.

But if you think it’s going to pass easily, you’d be wrong.

You see, some senators have come out and admitted their vote for ObamaCare repeal in 2015 was made because they knew President Obama would veto the bill. And now that ObamaCare repeal is a reality and will be signed by President Trump, they are backing down and changing their tune.

Those senators who are sitting on the fence are being pressured by the liberal media, and they are being hounded by Democrats like Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren to come to the table to negotiate. The left is doing all they can to salvage the disaster known as ObamaCare.

So your Campaign for Liberty is prepared to kick into full action to neutralize the left-wing media and the ultra-liberal faction in the U.S. Senate.

We’ve already delivered tens of thousands of your petitions to Sen. McConnell and his Republican colleagues. Your petitions demand the Senate repeal ObamaCare as we’ve been promised time and time again.

We’ve turned up the heat through email campaigns and social media programs in the states where senators are wavering.

Now it’s time you and I turn up the heat so they’ll see light.

Campaign for Liberty is in this until the bitter end. Only we don’t see it as bitter when ObamaCare is finally laid to rest.

The U.S. Senate is expected to move forward on ObamaCare repeal this week, but unless you and I turn up the heat on wavering senators, the effort is doomed to fail.

That’s why it’s critical you take two actions now to ensure we do away with ObamaCare.

First, call your U.S. Senators at 202-224-3121immediately, and demand they REPEAL OBAMACARE NOW!

Patrick, repealing ObamaCare could come down to just a couple of votes.

That’s why it’s so important you take immediate action and ask your friends and family to call as well. Tell your senators you expect nothing less than full repeal.

Secondmake a donation to Campaign for Liberty so we can continue our programs of letting Sen. McConnell and wavering senators know where we stand, and that you and I expect them to vote as they promised us they would.

ObamaCare has wreaked havoc on our health care system and forced sky-rocketing insurance premiums and deductibles on hard working Americans long enough.

You and I both know politicians are slow learners, but I am convinced that with your help, we can finally end ObamaCare once and for all.

So please call your U.S. Senators at 202-224-3121, and demand they REPEAL OBAMACARE NOW!

And then click here to make a donation of $300, $200, or $100 so Campaign for Liberty can turn up the heat even more.

You and I are so close. Let’s finish this now!

In Liberty,

Norm Singleton
President

P.S. The U.S. Senate is expected to move forward on ObamaCare repeal this week, but unless you and I turn up the heat on wavering senators, the effort is doomed to fail.

Cranking up the heat on the Senate isn’t going to be cheap -- or easy. Please make a generous contribution to Campaign for Liberty today to help cover the costs of online ads, emails, and petitions. Click here now to make a donation of$300, $200, or $100 so Campaign for Liberty can turn up the heat even more.

Stop The Surveillance State



PETITION: Stop The Surveillance State

13 July 2017 

Dear Patriot,

"With a pending congressional showdown just around the corner, you and I have our best chance in years to take a SLEDGEHAMMER to the growing surveillance state in Washington, D.C.

Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) is set to expire at the end of the year.

If you and I can stop its reauthorization, the NSA and its spy state pals will LOSE a massive, anti-Fourth Amendment surveillance power the media describes as one of their most treasured “crown jewels!”

This is the section of federal code the Deep State was caught red-handed abusing just this year to spy on members of the incoming Trump administration and then leaking information to the press.

If the Deep State will use these UNCONSTITUTIONAL tactics to try and politically destroy a sitting president, do you really think you and I will ever be safe from them?

I think you and I both know the answer to that question.

That’s why I’m counting on you to please click here to sign your “STOP THE SURVEILLANCE STATE” petition IMMEDIATELY.

As you’ll see, this petition insists your U.S. Representative and Senators vote “NO!” on reauthorizing Section 702 of FISA.

Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act grants the U.S. government the ability to wiretap without a warrant and collect information on innocent Americans whose communications (in any way) involve a foreign agent who is somehow “of interest.”

I’m not even just talking about picking up the phone and calling a known troublemaker in Yemen.

Under Section 702, even just casually mentioning to a friend the name of a new guy who just moved into your neighborhood could be enough for federal agents to start sweeping up communications on you and your friend!

In fact, this power is so broad, it allows the NSA to start sweeping up communications on virtually anyoneif they can claim to connect enough dots!

The good news is, you and I may even be in a stronger position than we were in 2015 when my son, Senator Rand Paul, sent jaws dropping around the country by forcing Section 215 of the so-called “PATRIOT” Act to expire.

Members of Congress are growing very nervous about the enormous power they see the Deep State wielding today.

Of course, many have never before cared about the Fourth Amendment guarantees for average Americans like you and me.

So they’ve voted at every opportunity to hand the American surveillance state spying powers no other government in the history of mankind -- not even the Communist East German Stasi of yesteryear -- has been able to amass on law-abiding citizens.

But now, as they’ve seen the Deep State unabashedly “weaponize” their spying powers for pure political gain, they’re worried about themselves.

Sign your “STOP THE SURVEILLANCE STATE” petition >>

In fact, one recent article from a Washington, D.C. insider magazine worried that some Members of Congress are concerned they’ll “get caught up in the same secret government intercepts” as the Trump administration, and they fear “intelligence services could leak information on them too!”
    
I hate to say, “I told you so. . .”

But it infuriates me to no end that the same politicians who swear on a Bible to uphold the U.S. Constitution -- which still includes the Fourth Amendment -- could be so blind!    

I know the statists in Washington, D.C. say, “trust us and everything will be ok.”

But how can we after members of the previous administration were caught red-handed spying on members of President Trump’s campaign and transition team?

How can we after the FISA Court itself -- which normally rubber stamps all surveillance requests -- scolded the NSA for consistently abusing their powerto spy on Americans (resulting in virtually nothing but a few news headlines)?

How can we after the U.S. Justice Department under President Obama illegally wiretapped reporters who dared criticize them?

I know the statists’ excuse is “security.”

But regardless of what buzzword they use to defend their assaults on our freedoms, their enemy is ALWAYS the same.  

It’s our privacy.  Our liberty.  Our “greed” in wanting to keep some of the money we’ve rightfully earned.   

And even when they succeed in taking from us everything they want, we are still vulnerable to terrorist attacks.

Sign your “STOP THE SURVEILLANCE STATE” petition >>

In fact, Britain’s intelligence services (armed with even more draconian spying powers) couldn’t even stop Khuram Shazad Butt from his recent stabbing attacks, which left 4 dead and 21 fighting for their lives in England.

This is AFTER he was filmed unfurling an ISIS flag in a documentary entitled, “The Jihadist Next Door!”

It’s almost as if terrorism is just a convenient excuse to ramp up more power and control over innocent people.

Just since the lid was blown off our federal government’s domestic surveillance programs in the summer of 2013, we’ve seen story after story hit the press regarding NSA abuses, including:

*** REFUSING to say whether or not it has spied on Members of Congress, which would effectively destroy any ability of our government’s Legislative Branch to police this rogue agency;

*** Effectively GUTTING attorney-client privilege by holding confidential records;

*** Analysts spying on ex-lovers and spouses -- a practice so common, the intelligence community has come up with their own jargon, i.e. “LOVEINT,” to describe it.

There are literally thousands of examples of abuse!

But this should be no surprise.

Politicians and government bureaucrats are human beings just like everyone else.

What’s made our country the greatest and freest nation in human history is that our Founding Fathers created a Constitution that limited the power (and therefore the damage) evil men can inflict.

But today, our Constitution’s Fourth Amendment -- which protects American citizens right to privacy from government -- is under assault like never before.

With it, the protections you and I have against the actions of evil men holding the reins of our own government are dropping like flies.

The good news is, as I explained, we CAN win this fight.

But it’s vital you click here to sign your “STOP THE SURVEILLANCE STATE” petition IMMEDIATELY.

I can promise you that surveillance state apologists are going to do whatever they can to permanently reauthorize Section 702 quickly and quietly -- far before its December 31 expiration date.

That’s why I’ve instructed Campaign for Liberty staff to pull out all the stops using mail, email, Internet ads, and even targeted radio and TV ads if I can raise the resources.

In fact, my hope is this program will rival even our efforts to pass Audit the Fed in size and scope!

But I can’t do any of this without you.  

So after you sign your petition, won’t you please agree to your most generous gift of $300 right away?

Patrick, I know that’s a lot.  If it’s too much, please give $200 or at least $100.

Like you, sometimes I feel like we’re watching the police state nightmare from George Orwell’s 1984 being built all around us.

So won’t you please join me in shouting DOWN WITH BIG BROTHER before it’s too late -- before the idea of American liberty is nothing more than a distant memory?

Please click here to sign your “STOP THE SURVEILLANCE STATE” petition and agree to your most generous gift of $300, $200, or at least $100 TODAY!

For liberty,


Ron Paul
Chairman

P.S. Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act -- the section of law statists use to justify the collection of law-abiding American citizens’ phone calls, emails, and Internet activity -- is set to expire this year.
    
If you and I turn up enough heat on Congress to stop reauthorization, I’m convinced we can bring the statists’ domestic spying programs to a crashing halt.

That’s why I’m counting on you to please click here to sign your “STOP THE SURVEILLANCE STATE” petition and agree to your most generous contribution of $300, $200, or at least $100 TODAY!"
