The Massie-Lofgren-Davidson-Jayapal amendment to the Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations bill (H.R. 4505) will likely be voted on today! This amendment prohibits the use of taxpayer dollars to conduct surveillance activities under Section 702 of the FISA Act. Section 702 has been called “the crown jewel of the surveillance state,” so stopping federal agents from using tax dollars to carry out warrantless wiretapping and other surveillance activities supposedly authorized by Section 702 would be a major step forward in defunding the entire snoop state. So please call your U.S. Representative at 202-224-3121 and tell them to vote for the Massie-Lofgren-Davidson-Jayapal amendment to H.R. 4505. You can find your U.S. Representative here. [...]

The House of Representatives will soon consider the Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill (HR 4505). Republicans Thomas Massie (KY-04) and Warren Davidson (OH-08) are joining Democrats Zoe Lofgren (CA-19) and Pramila Jayapal (WA-07) in offering an amendment to HR 4505 prohibiting the use of taxpayer funds to conduct warrantless wiretapping of American citizens conducted under Section 702 of the FISA Act. Section 702 was intended to allow limited surveillance of non-citizens, but government agents have used loopholes in the law to turn Section 702 into a blanket authorization for mass surveillance and warrantless wiretapping of American citizens. Section 702 has been referred to as the “crown jewel” of the surveillance state... Defunding Section 702 would be a huge step forward in our efforts to roll back the surveillance state. The first step in stopping taxpayer money from being used for Section 702 warrantless wiretapping is making sure the House Rules Committee allows the amendment to be debated and voted on by the full House. The Rules Committee is meeting to determine which of the submitted amendments to HR 4505 will be considered by the full House on Tuesday, July 27, at 2:00 pm. Rules is often referred to as “the Speaker’s Committee” because members [...]

The recent felony conviction and eight month prison sentence of January 6th protester Paul Hodgkins is an affront to any notion of justice. It is a political charge and a political verdict by a political court. Every American regardless of political persuasion should be terrified of a court system so beholden to politics instead of justice. We’ve seen this movie before and it does not end well. Worse than this miscarriage of justice is the despicable attempt by the prosecutor in the case to label Hodgkins – who has no criminal record and was accused of no violent crime – a “terrorist.” As journalist Michael Tracey recently wrote, Special Assistant US Attorney Mona Sedky declared Hodgkins a “terrorist” in the court proceedings not for committing any terrorist act, not for any act of violence, not even for imagining a terrorist act. Sedky wrote in her sentencing memo, “The Government … recognizes that Hodgkins did not personally engage in or espouse violence or property destruction.” She added, “we concede that Mr. Hodgkins is not under the legal definition a domestic terrorist.” Yet Hodgkins should be considered a terrorist because the actions he took – entering the Senate to take a photo of himself – occurred during [...]

On Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) brought the “bipartisan,” un-written infrastructure bill to the Senate floor on a cloture motion, which required 60 votes to open debate. It failed by a vote of 51-49. Every Republican voted against cloture. Senator Schumer changed his vote from yes to no, which allows him to call for another cloture vote when the bill is actually written. The Republican senators negotiating the bipartisan deal have indicated they will vote for cloture as soon as the bill is finalized. Some senators are saying the bill could be ready for another cloture vote as early as Monday. The eleven Republicans working toward a bipartisan plan are Richard Burr (NC), Bill Cassidy (LA), Susan Collins (ME), Lindsey Graham (SC), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Rob Portman (OH), Mitt Romney (UT), Mike Rounds (SD), Thom Tillis (NC), Todd Young (IN), and Jerry Moran (KS). House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the House will not vote on the bipartisan deal until the Senate votes on the larger “human infrastructure” plan. The pricetag on the unwritten bill currently stands at $1.2 trillion. The official cost of the "human infrastructure" plan is $3.5 trillion, but it could actually end up costing as much as $5.5 trillion. Republicans [...]

Your action is needed TODAY to stop the U.S. Senate from driving what could be the final nail in the coffin of our economic system. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is twisting arms to get the few votes he needs for another mega spending deal that will throw fuel on the fire of inflation that is raging out of control across the country. Schumer and some big spending Republicans are now scrambling to come up with a compromise on a so-called “Infrastructure” bill, which is estimated to cost over $1.2 Trillion when all is said and done. And that’s in addition to the so-called “human infrastructure” bill Democrats plan to pass under reconciliation at a cost of at least $3.5 Trillion! The “compromise” bill hasn’t even been written yet . . . so $1.2 Trillion is just the current estimate! Nobody really knows what this bill will ultimately include once it is dropped on the Senate with absolutely no time to even read it before the first vote on Wednesday. It’s time to let your U.S. Senators know IMMEDIATELY that America cannot afford this runaway spending and you expect them to vote NO on BOTH infrastructure bills at EVERY opportunity. Call your U.S. Senators TODAY [...]

On Wednesday, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) plans to hold a cloture vote on the “compromise” infrastructure spending bill in the U.S. Senate. The bill is projected to authorize at least $1.2 trillion on infrastructure funding. This is in addition to the so-called “human infrastructure” bill Democrats hope to pass under reconciliation with a price tag topping $3.5 trillion. The bills will use infrastructure funding as a means of starting the transformation to a “green economy.” The language of the compromise bill is still being negotiated, so Schumer plans to put up a shell bill for cloture and then amend it with the bipartisan compromise language when the negotiations are finished. Expect to find federal spending to “encourage” state and localities to adopt red light scameras, facial recognition technology, license plates readers, and other tools to invade your privacy in the legislation.  There may also be a “study” of a mileage tax. You can read about the dangers of a mileage tax here and here. The House already passed an infrastructure spending bill, HR 3684, the “INVEST in America Act,” by a vote of 221-201. Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-01) and Chris Smith (NJ-04) were the only Republicans to vote for the bill, which was supported [...]

Parents across the country are fighting to stop government schools from indoctrinating their children with Critical Race Theory. Critical Race Theory is a form of Marxism that focuses on the “oppression” of racial minorities. Central to Critical Race Theory is the belief that free markets are a tool of racial oppression that must be abolished and replaced with socialism. This is dangerous nonsense. History shows that governments, not free markets, are and always have been the instruments of racial oppression. For example, legislators passed Jim Crow laws because private businesses refused to voluntarily segregate their customers. Numerous scholars have documented how the welfare state and the war on drugs, as well as minimum wage laws, occupational licensing laws, and other anti-liberty laws, disproportionately harm minorities. Some of these laws were passed with the explicit goal of protecting white workers from competition with minorities. Public outrage over teaching children that the only way to overcome racism is to sacrifice liberty helped build efforts to pass laws banning the teaching of Critical Race Theory. Some of these efforts are accompanied by advancing mandates that schools promote a “positive” or “patriotic” view of America. This can replace one form of indoctrination with another. A “patriotic” curriculum could [...]

With the Constitutional Carry Bill finally signed into law thousands of Texas C4L members like you have seen a victory for Liberty from all of our efforts over the past several years. On September 1, 2021 the law will go into effect and it will no longer be required for anyone 21 and over that can legally possess a handgun to also carry a government permission slip. Despite false warnings from several anti gun groups and doom sayer politicians, expanding gun rights will make Texans safer. Often in the fight for Liberty we have to settle for small victories or no victory at all. This is time to celebrate a big win in a hard fought battle. Thank you to everyone that made it possible. Our fight isn't over though, even on constitutional carry, some aspects need to be fixed or removed in future sessions such as lowering the age to the age of consent, 18 and removing language that could give police an excuse to unconstitutionally harass those exercising their rights even though they don't have the lawful authority to do so. We will keep you updated but for now I hope everyone enjoys this return of Texas freedom. [...]

Progressives who work to end individual rights violations committed by the NSA, FBI, DEA, CIA, and other federal agencies usually overlook, or even support, the routine violations of Americans’ rights by the IRS. For example, progressives rarely, if ever, speak out against the IRS’s targeting of the opponents of those in power. When liberal Democrats control the White House, the IRS targets advocates of free markets. When hawkish Republicans are in power, the IRS targets antiwar activists. The Democrats’ election reform legislation would require political organizations to divulge their top donors. Such donor disclosure requirements can be, and have been, used to intimidate donors from supporting “controversial” causes. Yet the requirements are supported by many progressives in the name of getting big money out of politics. In order to “pay for” their massive spending schemes, President Biden and his congressional allies are planning a huge increase in the IRS budget. The declared purpose is to enable the tax agency to bring in to the government much more money by ramping up efforts to identify and punish those not paying the “proper” amount of taxes. The tax code’s complexity guarantees many innocent Americans will be caught in the IRS’s expanded net. Yet progressives will support [...]

Congratulations to our Ohio Campaign for Liberty grassroots supporters who helped push the bill ending sales taxation on gold, silver, and other precious metals across the finish line! Since money itself is not taxed, it only stands to reason you should not be taxed when you trade one currency for another. It’s vital that American citizens are able to protect themselves against the continued devaluation of Federal Reserve Notes (also known as “dollars”), especially now that Congress is spending with reckless abandon and the Federal Reserve is printing money at a rate not seen before. By ending the unjust taxation on precious metals, Ohioans will no longer be punished with taxes simply for choosing gold instead of dollars, and they have also taken a major step forward in ending the Fed’s monopoly on money. Read more about this important victory below. Ohio Becomes 41st State to End Sales Taxes on Gold and Silver By Mike Gleason Last week, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine signed a law ending sales taxation of gold, silver, platinum, and palladium bullion and coins. The Buckeye State joins Arkansas as the two states having canceled taxation of the monetary metals so far this year. Backed by the Sound Money Defense League, Money Metals Exchange, Campaign [...]
