Your action is needed now. As early as this Friday, February 27, the U.S. House will vote on President Biden’s $1.9 TRILLION “stimulus” package. Do you remember it wasn’t too long ago that both Republicans and Democrats were afraid to vote for a bill that would cost Americans billions of dollars? Now the spending bills go beyond millions and billions like the latest $1.9 Trillion Covid relief bill, dubiously named the “American Rescue Plan” which will only continue the reckless destruction of the dollar and massive distortions in our economy that harm small businesses. This 591-page bill is filled with special interest bailouts and more crony capitalism waste that have nothing to do with Covid and re-opening our country: •    $300 million of taxpayer dollars for the Agriculture Department to "conduct monitoring and surveillance of susceptible animals for incidence of SARS–CoV–2" as guided by the World Organization for Animal Health •    $135 million to the National Endowment for the Arts, $135 million to the National Endowment of the Humanities, and $200 million to the Institute of Museum and Library Services •    $10 million for the "preservation and maintenance of Native American languages" •    $50 million for family planning •    $500 million "to support public health data surveillance and analytics [...]

If you live in South Dakota, Montana, or New Hampshire, your help is needed to stop the ConCon. Your state is pushing for an Article V Convention, and it must be stopped now! Montana: Call your state representative and tell them to oppose HJ 13. New Hampshire: Call your state representative and tell them to oppose HCR 1. South Dakota: Call your state senator at 605-773-3821 and demand they oppose SJR 502. If enough states pass similar measures and a convention is called, the entire U.S. Constitution would be at risk of revisions or worse! You and I both know the federal government has been ignoring the limits placed on it by the Constitution for decades. This last year has made crystal clear just how little your rights and our Constitution mean to governors and state legislators of BOTH parties across the country! Many governors trashed the Constitution by sentencing citizens to house arrest and shutting down all businesses deemed “non-essential,” and state legislators have barely mustered a whimper in their defense! These very politicians from states across America are jockeying to be delegates to an Article V Convention, tasked with “fixing” the Constitution they themselves have turned their backs on and refused to defend. It’s CRITICAL you take action [...]

While the Senate works on confirming President Biden’s cabinet nominations, the House will be in session beginning today, and they will stay in session until they pass the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief/economic stimulus bill. In the Senate, the bill will be considered under “reconciliation.” Reconciliation allows Congress to pass legislation dealing with spending, revenue (taxes), and/or debt as long as the legislation is reported out of the relevant committees in accordance with instructions contained in a budget resolution passed by the House and Senate. A budget resolution authorizing the use of reconciliation for the coronavirus bill passed earlier this month. Bills passed under reconciliation are not subject to a filibuster, so it can pass the Senate with just 51 votes. However, reconciliation is limited to items having a “significant” effect on the budget. Assuming every Senate Democrat votes for the COVID bill, the Senate could pass it with just Democratic support. The Senate Parliamentarian makes the final decision as to what does and does not have a significant effect on the budget. It is doubtful that, for example, the proposals to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, which is included in the bill, can be passed under reconciliation if the Senate Parliamentarian has final say on the matter. It’s worth noting the Senate can overrule the Parliamentarian by a majority vote, which would disregard Senate rules and [...]

Last week Texas experienced a cold snap that resulted in serious statewide damage, death, and destruction. The collapse of the state’s energy grid left millions of Texans in the dark and freezing for days at a time. Tragically, at least 30 people died. There are many reasons why Texas became like a Third World country, and we should be careful not to pin all the blame on just one factor. But it seems clear that the disaster was to a large degree caused by political decisions to shift toward “green” energy generated from solar and wind and by Governor Abbott’s authoritarian Covid restrictions. Abbott, who won a “wind leadership” award just this month, oversaw the near-collapse of wind energy generation last week. Yet the politicization of energy generation in favor of “green” alternatives over natural gas and other fossil fuels has led to the unintended consequences of freezing Texans facing multiple millions of dollars in property damage and worse. Additionally, federal emissions and other restrictions forced Texas to beg Washington for permission to generate power at higher levels in anticipation of unprecedented demand. Governor Abbott finally received permission from the Department of Energy on February 14th, but by then many facilities found themselves [...]

Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul issued the following statement on the death of conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh: “Carol and I extend our deepest sympathies to Rush Limbaugh’s family, friends and many fans. While I had disagreements with Rush on foreign policy and civil liberties, I appreciate his defenses of economic liberty. Rush introduced millions of Americans to sound economic principles and the dangers of big government policies like ObamaCare.  Rush did this both through his own broadcast and by having my late friend Walter Williams as a regular guest host. Rush’s  unfailing good humor and his constant optimism should serve an example of how to effectively spread the message of liberty.” [...]

Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul issued the following statement in response to reports that the Biden Administration may try to halt the spread of coronavirus by limiting the ability of American citizens to travel interstate. Candidate Joe Biden promised not to abuse his executive authority or shut down the economy in order to fight the coronavirus. Instead, he said he would "listen to the science." An order limiting the ability of Americans to travel across state lines would violate all three promises. Such an order would be one of the most tyrannical acts of a president in American history. The only realistic way this order could be enforced is to militarize state lines. Is President Biden really willing to deploy U.S. troops to keep Texans from vacationing at Disney World? Restricting interstate trade and travel would further damage an economy still suffering from the overreaction to coronavirus, causing even more small (and maybe some large) businesses to close their doors, thus throwing millions more Americans out of work. Restrictions on interstate travel would be ineffective in stopping the spread of coronavirus. Even the World Health Organization (WHO) has admitted lockdowns do not stop the spread of coronavirus. However,  lockdowns are effective at increasing [...]

Last week’s second impeachment trial of former President Trump should serve as a warning that something is very wrong in US politics. Far from a measured, well-investigated, rock-solid case against the former president, America was again abused with day after day of character assassination, innuendo, false claims, and even falsified “evidence.” The trial wasn’t intended to win a conviction of Trump for “incitement” because the Democrats already knew that the votes were not there. So, just as with the last impeachment trial, the goal was to fling as much dirt at Donald Trump as they could while the cameras were rolling. Their hatred of Donald Trump is so deep and visceral that probably a psychologist would have been more beneficial to them than yet another impeachment trial. It would be incorrect to say that the House managers’ case fell apart, because they had no case to begin with. They never had a case because they made no effort to develop a case. The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court saw from the beginning that this was no legitimate impeachment trial and informed Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer that he would not preside. Without the Chief Justice, there was no Constitutional impeachment trial. So [...]

The Senate trial for now twice-impeached former President Donald Trump is set to begin this week, with little doubt over the outcome. A procedural vote in the Senate on the constitutionality of “removing from office” someone who is not in office revealed that nowhere near enough Republicans were willing to join their Democrat counterparts in voting to convict. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who is required by the Constitution to preside, has by refusing to participate made it clear that he does not consider the upcoming action in the Senate to be a legitimate impeachment trial. So if it is not a legitimate trial, what is it, then? Judging from the House impeachment resolution, it looks more like a banana republic “show trial” than a careful case detailing Trump’s “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Trump was impeached by the Democrat-controlled US House for “incitement of insurrection” over the January 6th melee at the US Capitol. Telling his supporters they must fight or they’re “not going to have a country any more” was cited in the impeachment resolution as evidence that Trump “gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of Government” and has “demonstrated that he will remain a threat [...]

The political class seems undeterred by the ongoing allegations of election irregularities. They actually want to make it worse! H.R. 1, introduced in the U.S. Congress, would allow for the permanent manipulation of elections by nationalizing them. This bill has so many bad ideas in one package including: >>Making it illegal to clean out voter rolls of deceased or non-residents; >>Forcing states to allow early voting; >>Forcing states to allow vote-by-mail, which is fraught with opportunities to commit fraud; >>Forcing taxpayers to subsidize candidates they don’t align with politically; and >>Policing online speech about elections with new broad and sweeping powers. The so-called “For the People Act” empowers federal regulators to categorize and regulate speech, including online. According to Grover Norquist: New standards for "coordination" would be broad and confusing. All speech that simply mentions a candidate could be illegal four months out from an election if groups speak to the public. Worse, at any time, any funded communication that mentions an issue that might be associated with a politician could be illegal. The government just has to say the speech "promotes," "attacks," "supports" or "opposes" a potential candidate. That means Campaign for Liberty could be in legal jeopardy for running our critical candidate survey program so you will know where candidates stand [...]
