Brannon for U.S. Senate

Posted by JP on April 18, 2014 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (0)

I'm going to cut right to the chase.

 

My campaign is in the midst of an aggressive grassroots voter outreach program.

 

TV and radio ads. Hard-hitting direct mail. Targeted Internet and FaceBook ads. And nine grassroots headquarters stuffed full of volunteers making phone calls each night.

 

Our voter outreach program is working.

 

Despite taking on Karl Rove and the establishment's million dollar war chest, the latest polls show this race is a statistical dead heat between me and my establishment-backed opponent.

 

That's because when voters hear my message of individual liberty and constitutional government, they flock in droves to my campaign.

 

But the May 6 Republican Primary is less than three weeks out.

 

And nearly 30% of Republican voters remain undecided.

 

If I don't raise an emergency $100,000, my campaign will be forced to scale back during this critical time.

 

Today, I'm counting on your most generous financial support to help me run a full grassroots voter outreach program through Election Day.

 

This conservative outreach campaign is a proven winner.

 

Ted Cruz. Mike Lee. Rand Paul.

 

All 3 conquered better-funded establishment candidates because they mobilized the grassroots.

 

And North Carolina could be the next state to rock the political world.

 


Conservative Candidates

FreedomWorks for America

 FreedomWorks for America endorsed a lot of real Conservatives this year. And over the last month alone, we’ve endorsed many more patriots! There is a lot going on, and I want to update you on where these pivotal races stand.

 

Let’s look at North Carolina first. If you don’t know North Carolina’s Dr. Greg Brannon, now is your chance to find out why he’s the next Rand Paul or Ted Cruz. Brannon is an OB/GYN and an entrepreneur. Unlike his main primary opponent Thom Tillis, Dr. Brannon isn’t a pay-to-play politician. Brannon is endorsed by Ron Paul, Erick Erickson, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and plenty of other Conservatives. In fact, Glenn Beck just endorsed him.

 

Last week's polling puts Brannon and Tillis neck and neck. This race is tied, and there are only three weeks left. This is a huge race – Obama lost North Carolina in 2012, and we can replace liberal Democrat Kay Hagan in 2014. Read more about Greg here.

 

Now I know that I told you about Chris McDaniel months ago, but this Senate race is really heating up, and I want to give you an update. Winning big in Mississippi would send a loud message to Washington: grassroots conservatives won’t back down to Establishment pressure. McDaniel’s opponent, six-term incumbent Thad Cochran is really putting the pressure on. He raised almost $2 million dollars last quarter, and he is flooding the airwaves with nasty personal attacks.

 

But you know what, Joe? It doesn’t matter. His money isn’t working. Chris McDaniel is within striking distance because the people of Mississippi know Thad Cochran is out of touch. He recently admitted he doesn't even know what the Tea Party is! Mississippi is proving that grassroots pressure can beat Establishment money any day. We are less than two months away from the Primary, and we can win this one. Read more about McDaniel here.

 

Now, on to some new endorsements. A few weeks ago, FreedomWorks for America endorsed Ben Sasse for Senate in Nebraska. Sasse is a Conservative health care expert with grassroots support across the state. He has the backing of Mike Lee, Senate Conservatives Fund, Glenn Beck and many more. He is neck-and-neck with his Lindsey Graham and John McCain-backed opponent. This is another race we can win. If we can get Ben Sasse elected too, we could double the Freedom Caucus in one election cycle! Read more about Sasse here.

 

Another endorsement from just last month comes in Utah’s 4th District, where FreedomWorks for America stands with Mia Love. The former Mayor of Saratoga Springs, Love is a true Conservative warrior. She cut spending significantly while in office, and will take that attitude where it’s truly needed: Washington. In 2012, Mia Love lost this race by only 800 votes. FreedomWorks for America wants to make sure 2014 is the year she wins. Find out more about Mia Love here.

 

I think this is a first for FreedomWorks for America, Joe. We just endorsed a former Super Bowl Champion in Clint Didier! Clint is a former tight end for the Green Bay Packers and Washington Redskins, and knows what it takes to win. He is running in Washington’s 4th district, and is a staunch Conservative. I can’t wait to see him in the House scoring touchdowns for liberty! I hope you’ll read more about Clint Didier here.

 

Offense is important. In fact, it’s what we do here at FreedomWorks for America. But we have to defend the liberty lovers already in Congress, too. That’s why we endorsed Justin Amash (MI-3) and Tom McClintock (CA-4) against their liberal-Republican primary challengers.

 

Justin Amash has been the most dedicated fighter for liberty in the House. He led the heroic effort to stop NSA spying and has a 100% lifetime score on the FreedomWorks Scorecard. His primary opponent – Brian Ellis – is a hand-picked Establishment crony. Ellis wants to represent Big Business, not grassroots conservatives. Justin Amash is the gold standard of freedom fighters, and we will defend him punch-for-punch. Find out more about Justin Amash here.

 

Tom McClintock is a fiscal champion. He consistently votes against spending increases, raising the debt ceiling, and increasing taxes. On EPA abuse, Rep. McClintock stands with property owners against aggressive regulation. He has a 97% rating on the FreedomWorks Scorecard and is a valuable member of the Freedom Caucus. You can find out more about Tom McClintock here.

 

Before I finish, there are two House races that I need to update you on. I know I have raved about Igor Birman in California and Bryan Smith in Idaho before, but these races are heating up.

 

Igor Birman grew up in the Soviet Union. He saw the horrors of Big Government firsthand. That’s why he wants to represent California’s 7th Congressional District. And that’s why FreedomWorks for America has his back. California has a jungle primary, meaning everyone runs against each other in the primary and the top two candidates move on to the general election, regardless of party!

 

I know, it’s a weird system, but it makes this primary all the more important. Igor is neck and neck with incumbent Democrat Ami Bera, and the Republican Establishment pick Doug Ose. The primary is less than two months away, and we are doing all we can to put him over the top. Please read more about Birman here.

 

Joe, my last update comes from the state of Idaho where incumbent Mike Simpson has held Idaho’s 2nd district for far too long. Rep. Simpson voted for the Wall Street Bailout (TWICE!), to expand entitlement programs, to raise taxes on hard working Americans, and to fund ObamaCare. I don’t even know why he calls himself a Republican. He really is that bad.

 

That’s why we have to elect Bryan Smith and send Mike Simpson home! Since I last updated you on this race, Establishment money and endorsements have poured in for Mike Simpson. Why? Because they are scared of the grassroots support Bryan Smith has. This race is only a few weeks away, and I haven’t seen the Establishment this scared in a while. If we can knock off Simpson, it will terrify Establishment Insiders everywhere. I encourage you to read more about Bryan Smith here.

 

FreedomWorks for America only picks the best conservatives who can win. 2014 is about Washington versus America. We are waging a war against the Washington Establishment, a war we can win. Thanks for taking the time Joe, to read through this important update. I will have more for you in the coming weeks. Together we can save this country.

 

In Liberty,

BREAKING: House Ways and Means Committee Votes to Refer Lois Lerner For Criminal Charges

BREAKING: House Ways and Means Committee Votes to Refer Lois Lerner For Criminal Charges

Katie Pavlich | Apr 09, 2014



The House Ways and Means Committee has voted to 23-14 along party lines to refer former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS Lois Lerner to the Justice Department for prosecution. Although the details about exactly what charges will be have not yet been released, lawmakers are arguing Lerner has not been truthful with Congress or the IRS inspector general and leaked confidential tax information.

UPDATE: 

 

New Emails Show Lois Lerner Was in Contact With DOJ About Prosecuting Tax Exempt Groups

 

According to new IRS emails obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request from Judicial Watch, former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice in May 2013 about whether tax exempt groups could be criminally prosecuted for "lying" about political activity.

 

"I got a call today from Richard Pilger Director Elections Crimes Branch at DOJ ... He wanted to know who at IRS the DOJ folk s [sic] could talk to about Sen. Whitehouse idea at the hearing that DOJ could piece together false statement cases about applicants who "lied" on their 1024s --saying they weren't planning on doing political activity, and then turning around and making large visible political expenditures. DOJ is feeling like it needs to respond, but want to talk to the right folks at IRS to see whether there are impediments from our side and what, if any damage this might do to IRS programs. I told him that sounded like we might need several folks from IRS," Lerner wrote in a May 8, 2013 email to former Nikole C. Flax, who was former-Acting IRS Commissioner Steven T. Miller's chief of staff.

 

"I think we should do it – also need to include CI [Criminal Investigation Division], which we can help coordinate. Also, we need to reach out to FEC. Does it make sense to consider including them in this or keep it separate?" Flax responded on May 9, 2013.

The truth about spammers • 

Once again the President and his liberal cult members are lying to the American people. Did anyone expect the leftists to not announce that they signed up millions of people in the last minute and everything is a great big success.

 

Take these facts into account:

 

1. The main reason for the takeover of 1/6th of the American economy was to insure the 30 million people who didn't have health insurance. The CBO says that in 10 years about the same number of people will lack insurance as before. This, after new expenditures of as much as $2 trillion and a colossal disruption of the US medical system. (keep the 2 trillion dollar cost in mind)

 

2. The cost of healthcare will come down. This lie was told often and repetitively to the American People. To the contrary, costs for healthcare have risen along with the deductibles, not to mention the millions who have had their policies cancelled.

 

3. Back to the 2 trillion dollar costs; Two trillion dollars could have insured 50 million uninsured people for the next 50 years without dismantling the countries excellent healthcare. People from all around the world come to the United States to get top quality treatment that's not available in the rest of the world.

 

4. Knowing that all liberal progressives are total liars and cheats from President Obama on down, did anyone think they wouldn't lie about the numbers of sign ups yesterday and today? Of course the White House was going to lie about the number of people who signed up for the ACA. (I predicted this lie weeks ago) Not even Kathleen Sibelius knows who signed up and who has paid as she repeatedly testified before Congress.

 

Here's the end result, the sign-ups is all a lie and was expected. They have lied from the very beginning, they lied to get re-elected, they lied about the website, they lied about the reduction in medical costs, they lied about being able to keep your doctor, hospital and treatments.(period)

 

They're all liars and today's lie is fitting because it comes on April Fools day. Watch the site be spammed by these liars touting the big success in sign-ups even while the website was down most of March 31 st.

 

The leftists are scared of the elections in November and they'll play up this lie from now till then. Obama will put off more requirements until after the 2016 elections because that's how Democraps win elections, they lie to the gullible low information voters.


UPDATE: Sebeius resigns.
