Nancy Pelosi’s Election Bill Will DESTROY Free And Fair Elections!

Democrats radical agenda to federalize
state elections

The top legislative priority of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is to launch an assault against the First Amendment and against free and fair elections.  Without these foundational freedoms, America will be unable to maintain her democratic republic.

Take action now before it’s too late and let your voice be heard.  Tell your U.S. senators and representative to publicly oppose and vote against the expansion of government regulation and censorship of state elections.

TAKE ACTION NOW

The House version (H.R. 1) and Senate version (S. 1) of Pelosi’s and Schumer’s bills are deceptively named the “For the People Act.”  Their bills are not about the citizenry but about Democrats preserving and cementing political power.  They would remove the constitutional authority of the individual states to run federal elections and put that power into the hands of those in the U.S. Congress and the administrative state.

These deceptive and destructive bills would require non-profit organizations like American Family Association to publicly disclose financial donors’ names to the federal government.  These names would then be made available to the public and searchable on government websites.  Names of donors could then be used, for example, to publicly intimidate those whose religious convictions define marriage as being between one man and one woman, or those who believe that sex is a fixed biological reality established at conception.  Such an act of intimidation of donors would harm the ability of non-profit organizations to advocate on behalf of their supporters.  These bills would weaponize the Federal Election Commission against Americans and use the force of government as a way to silence dissenting opinion.

Pelosi’s and Schumer’s versions of the bill would also federalize state elections by imposing unconstitutional mandates and would expand federal government regulation of state elections.  This agenda would violate the rights of states and their citizens to establish voter qualifications to ensure integrity at the polls by enforcing “progressive” laws on voter identification, absentee ballots, and mail-in voting.

Heritage Foundation has provided a good analysis of the “For the People Act.”  You can read it here.

The U.S. Congress could be voting on these bills soon.  Before it’s too late, let your voice be heard and tell your U.S. senators and representative to publicly oppose and vote against H.R. 1 and S. 1.

TAKE ACTION NOW

We Stand With Pastor Coates And Religious Freedom

Stand with pastor arrested for following
God, rather than man

Pastor James Coates is a faithful pastor and follower of God.  As a result, he ended up in jail.

Pastor Coates leads GraceLife Church in Alberta, Canada.  When the government issued edicts that limited the free exercise of worship with overbearing COVID-19 restrictions, he chose to follow Christ.

In true Gestapo form, government officials attended one of the church’s services in February and then charged the pastor with violating an order to shut down the church by the end of January.

STAND WITH PASTOR COATES

According to Breitbart, Pastor Coates turned himself in, but rejected an offer by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to release him from jail if he promised to stop holding church services on Sunday.

As of today, Pastor Coates remains in prison, but has an appeal hearing pending.  He is being represented by the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, which defends the constitutional and religious freedoms of Canadians.

TX Attorney General Stops AntiAmerican Administration from Puting Texans In Danger

Court Halts Biden Administration’s Unlawful Freeze of Deportations, Upholding Federal Law.

AG Paxton: TX Lawsuit Results in Court
Halting Biden Administration’s Unlawful Freeze of Deportations, Upholding
Federal Law

AUSTIN, TX  –  Attorney General Ken Paxton today lauded the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas after it issued a nationwide preliminary injunction halting implementation of a portion of the Biden Administration’s unlawful memorandum to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).  The memorandum directed an almost complete freeze of deportations of illegal aliens, violating congressionally enacted immigration laws.  The Court also found that the memorandum lacked “a rational explanation” and that the Biden Administration should have given Texas notice and an opportunity to comment on the freeze because it would have a “significant impact” on Texas.  That impact would have been a significant financial cost to Texas and taxpayers.

“I fully support the Court’s decision to prevent implementation of the Biden Administration’s unlawful action and prioritize Texans’ safety and the rule of law.  A freeze on deportations at this scale would undermine federal law, irreparably harm our great state, and directly endanger our citizens.  Law and order must be upheld,” said Attorney General Paxton.

“I will continue to defend Texas against those who unlawfully ignore United States law in favor of their own policy preferences.”

Tell Congress To Defund PBS

Tell Congress to Stop Using Our Tax Dollars
to Fund PBS

WE THE PEOPLE Demand and Deserve Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination

One Million Moms is asking you to encourage your member of Congress to support Rep. Doug Lamborn’s bill to defund public broadcasting.

Congressman Lamborn (R-CO) has introduced legislation that would stop federal tax dollars from going to Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).  According to congressional appropriation records, the federally subsidized Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) receives over $400 million per year, and it sends about $60 million to PBS to promote an ideology of sexual deviancy and to attack religious liberty.  This must stop!

PBS has been airing a TV and an online series called Prideland to promote and normalize unbiblical sexuality.  By distributing and promoting Prideland, PBS is furthering attacks on Christianity and is making a mockery of the Bible and God’s design for human sexuality.

In the most recent PBS episode, Championing LGBTQ+ Healthcare in Mississippi, healthcare workers’ religious liberty and freedom of conscience are attacked.

Healthcare personnel in many states have religious liberty rights and freedom of conscience rights to protect them from the sexual deviancy agenda.  PBS is airing LGBTQ+ propaganda to undermine state laws designed to protect healthcare workers’ rights.

In particular, PBS has made it clear that it’s fighting against state laws like Mississippi’s H.B. 1523, which states:

The state government shall not take any discriminatory action against a person wholly or partially on the basis that the person declines to participate in the provision of treatments, counseling, or surgeries related to sex reassignment or gender identity transitioning or declines to participate in the provision of psychological, counseling, or fertility services based upon a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction. …

This law prevents the government from forcing healthcare workers and counselors to provide services that would violate their “sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction.”  If providing gender identity transition care violates a healthcare worker’s religious belief or conviction, then the state government cannot force the worker to provide that service.

It is clear that PBS is using taxpayer funding to lobby the court of public opinion to subvert state laws that protect religious liberty and rights of conscience for healthcare personnel.

This is not just a Mississippi issue as the PBS Prideland series makes it clear that its sexual deviancy agenda is nationwide.

NOT IN MY WORLD!!!! Is Joining The Strike

We are on Social Media Strike July 4 – 5.

Wikipedia Co-Founder Calls for Social
Media Strike July 4 – 5

A co-founder of Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, is urging people to stop using social media for up to 48 hours on July 4 -5 in order to convince social media companies to let users have the final say on how their personal data is used.

The BBC reports Dr. Larry Sanger, an American internet project developer, wrote in his blog that such a two-day strike (#SocialMediaStrike) by users would show the “massive demand” for change and that users have a “serious grievance” against the networks.

“We’re going to make a lot of noise,” Sanger wrote in a blog telling of his reasons for calling the two-day boycott.

“We’re going to flex our collective muscles and demand that giant, manipulative corporations give us back control over our data, privacy, and user experience,” he wrote.

“We will not use social media on those days, except to post notices that we are on strike,” Sanger explained.

Sanger hopes the boycott would prompt social networks to change their policies and grant users more control over their data.

He also envisions social networks becoming more open in the future and more interoperatable, allowing a post made on one network to show up on others.
“This is how social media should have been developed from the beginning, rather than walled off in separate, competing networks,” Sanger said.

All users who join the boycott are being asked to sign Sanger’s Declaration of Digital Independence.  Drafted by Sanger, the declaration calls for social networks to be decentralized and structured so they will respect users rights, including free speech, privacy and security.

Sanger’s call for a boycott of social media has been widely circulated on several networks, including Reddit, Twitter and others, according to the BBC.

Despite the online interest, some have questioned what impact such a boycot would have.

One user on the Hacker News list, a website that shares tech headlines, wrote: “I feel that even if everybody who cared went on strike, the difference in daily visitors would probably be in the error margin.”

“I think most people who really care have already left the centralised social media or scaled it down to the point that a non-strike day is an exception,” the user noted.
