I Love you Mom. See you soon.

Monday, December 3, 2012

St. Leona has arrived.

December 3, 2012 7:30pm, Pacific time, as I sat on one side of the bed and Wally stood on the other, Deanna, Deborah. Marion and Jodi were in casual family conversation.  Mom’s labored breathing slowly came to a stop.  Her strained facial expression suddenly became very peaceful.  Wally looked at me and said, “I think she is gone.”  I stood up and bent over Mom kissing her on the forehead.  Deanna removed the oxygen mask from Mom’s face and hugged her and we all shed tears of joy knowing that Mom was absent from the body and present with the Lord.  Marion went to summons the nurse.  Nurse Cheryl came in with a stethoscope, and after listening to Mom’s chest for a moment, she nodded and said, “I’m so sorry.”

Rewriting the history
 of Thanksgiving 

Note:  I want to share with you some of my heritage which has become part of the heritage of America. My grandfather 14 generations back was William Bradford, co-writer of the Mayflower Compact, inventor of the free market system, and governor of the Plymouth colony for over 30 years. This week, I would like to share some insights of and from his writings in "Of Plymouth Plantation."

Across the United States, many do not know exactly why we celebrate the wonderful day of Thanksgiving, and many others believe it is a day of sorrow. 
Anything in American culture that would portray people in a reverent and humble position toward God Almighty is subject to criticism and Thanksgiving is not exempt. 
Every year, the godless seek to chip away at the history of this blessed holiday that reminds us as a nation of our roots in thanking God for His many benefits.  For example, in 2007 the Seattle Public School system attacked Thanksgiving by instructing its staff to deconstruct Thanksgiving by using a bitter account by a native American advocacy group.

In a letter to Seattle Public School staff, Caprice D. Hollins, the Director of Equity, Race and Learning Support, along with two representatives of Native American Education, directed the staff to the Oyate Web page entitled "Deconstructing the Myths of the First Thanksgiving." 
The letter says the website "offers suggestions on ways to be sensitive of diverse experiences and perspectives and still make the holiday meaningful for all students. Here you will discover ways to help you and your students think critically, and find resources where you can learn about Thanksgiving from a Native American perspective. Eleven myths are identified about Thanksgiving, take a look at #11 and begin your own deconstruction."

This 2007 website and it's 11 so-called "myths" hardly documented anything from the true historic account of the Plymouth Plantation, written by Mayflower passenger William Bradford, who is considered the nation's first historian. 

The myths were a collection of bitter politically correct drivel. 
Myth number 11 recounted as fact: "For many Indian people, "Thanksgiving" is a time of mourning, of remembering how a gift of generosity was rewarded by theft of land and seed corn, extermination of many from disease and gun, and near total destruction of many more from forced assimilation. As currently celebrated in this country, "Thanksgiving" is a bitter reminder of 500 years of betrayal returned for friendship."

In "Of Plymouth Plantation,"  Bradford writes of how the Indians stole tools from the settlers and after an English speaking Indian named Samoset came to their camp, they became friends, the tools were returned and "With him, after friendly entertainment and some gifts, they made a peace which has now continued for twenty-four years." 
The peace agreement set forth how the Pilgrims and the Indians would help and protect each other by living in peace. 
The bitter politically correct crowd has it wrong. 
The first Thanksgiving, as it was then and is today, is a 1 Chronicles 16:34 day, "O give thanks unto the Lord; for He is good; for His mercy endures for ever."   
And don't let the lies of deceivers spoil it.

Carson on 2nd Amendment

Ben Carson Just Said Something HUGE The Pro-Gun Crowd Is Going To LOVE

Last week, prior to traveling to Iowa for a fundraiser, Dr. Ben Carson clarified the remarks he made during an appearance on the Glenn Beck show in 2013, where he spoke about gun control. Those prior statements led many to believe that he opposed people owning certain types of weapons, such as semiautomatics, and that he didn’t truly support the Second Amendment, but it turns out that’s really not the case.

For those unfamiliar, below is a clip of when Dr. Carson appeared on the Glenn Beck program last year:

While the above clip stopped 2A supporters cold and caused an immediate aversion to Carson as a presidential candidate, it seems Carson either misspoke or was misunderstood in his stance on gun control, as he’s spoken out in an attempt to clarify and is sending a much different message.

According to Bloomberg News, Carson participated in a conference call last Wednesday and clarified his stance on gun control and the Second Amendment, saying that he should have elaborated more when speaking with Beck and explained what he meant in more detail.

“There seemed to be group of people—I don’t know exactly who they are—who seize upon one part of something that I said,” Carson stated on the call. “Sometimes people just hear one little thing, and they don’t hear anything else.”

He continued, explaining how he truly feels about the Second Amendment and why he made the ambiguous statements to Beck.
“Perhaps I didn’t convey it appropriately,” he said. “I wanted to convey that, you know, I’ve lived in urban areas. I’ve worked in urban areas. I’ve seen a lot of carnage, and I’d prefer a situation where the kinds of weapons that create that kind of carnage don’t fall to the hands of criminal elements or insane people. But that is secondary to the desire to always defend the Second Amendment.”
Carson stood strong in his belief that the government or bureaucrats shouldn’t be allowed to take “law-abiding citizen’s rights for any kind of weapon that they want to protect themselves,” saying “under no circumstances” would he allow such to happen if he were president. He also elaborated and said that he would allow people to own any kind of weapon that’s legally available, including “automatic weapons and semi-automatic weapons.”

He stopped short of saying that convicted felons should be allowed to own firearms after serving their time, adding the caveat that if they’re “still considered a danger to society,” they should probably still be in prison and not on the streets. Like most in the pro-gun crowd, he also doesn’t think that a “mental patient” or people with a “history of violence” should be able to own anything capable of wreaking havoc on society.
Another important point that he made was that the government shouldn’t be able to “retrospectively” make guns that were once-legal illegal, such as AR-15s or other semiautomatic rifles.

As we bear down on 2016, the likelihood that Carson will make a presidential run continues to increase as he’s receiving tremendous support among conservatives across America. With his latest statements on the Second Amendment, that support will only increase as many who were leery of his previous statements are given the clarity needed to know where he truly stands.

I would vote for the good doctor in a heartbeat. He’s an esteemed neurosurgeon with common sense and good values, which would be a much welcomed change from the community agitator in office now.
Let us know what you think about his latest statements and his potential as a presidential candidate in the comments. With his prior statements causing concern for conservatives, don’t forget to share this article to set the record straight.

Mayflower Compact

Note: Over the next few days, I hope that you will indulge me in considering your heritage. I want to share with you some of my heritage which has become part of the heritage of America. My grandfather 14 generations back was William Bradford, co-writer of the Mayflower Compact, inventor of the free market system, and governor of the Plymouth colony for over 30 years. This week, I would like to share some insights of and from his writings in "Of Plymouth Plantation."

 "What our forefathers with so much difficulty secured, do not basely relinquish."      These are the words translated from Latin that are etched on the gravestone of William Bradford, governor of the Massachusetts Colony, co-writer of the Mayflower Compact, inventor of the free market system, and my grandfather 14 generations removed. Bradford is often remembered for being one of the Pilgrims who survived their first winter in the new America. He is one of the brave men and women who endured such great hardship to help make this nation what it is-a beacon of religious and economic freedom blessed in covenant with God. And unto his death his gravestone warns us not to basely relinquish these liberties.
The Mayflower Compact is a covenant with God, dedicating this land now called the United States of America to the advancement of the Christian faith. The Compact declares, "IN THE NAME OF GOD, AMEN. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, &c. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honor of our King and Country, a Voyage to plant the first Colony in the northern Parts of Virginia;

"Do by these Presents, solemnly and mutually, in the Presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick, for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid: And by Virtue hereof do enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions, and Officers, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general Good of the Colony; unto which we promise all due Submission and Obedience."  With these words, 41 men agreed to govern in submission and obedience to God.

As anyone can see, these were men and women dedicated to establishing a land for the advancement of the Christian faith and they set themselves apart bringing all they had and all they claimed in covenant with God.
And it was not just for their time on earth, but as what was written on Bradford's grave, the covenant and their subsequent sacrifices were not to be relinquished.
As America embraces socialism and human secularism, let us remember that only 41 men began a nation with their signatures. There are more of us today that are citizens of the Kingdom of God, and we can reclaim what our forefathers with so much difficulty secured.
Jesus said in Matthew 19:26, "With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible."
Let us give thanks.

The 1st Thanksgiving

In the days leading up to the first "Thanksgiving"  of the Pilgrims, they had dispatched a group of ten men to "explore the bay and trade with the natives."  They were guided by the English speaking Squanto, who also served as an interpreter.
When the men returned, they were very impressed with the land around the bay and wished they could have settled there instead of Cape Cod.
William Bradford, wrote however, "But it seems that the Lord, Who assigns to all men the bounds of their habitations, had appointed it for another use. And thus they found the Lord to be with them in all their ways, and to bless their outgoings and incomings, for which let His holy name have the praise forever, to all posterity."

This "Thanksgiving"  to the Lord offered by Bradford in his history "Of Plymouth Plantation" indicates that Jesus was at the center of his thoughts about all things- -even the land they were allocated by God to begin their colony. It also forebears testimony to the very positive Christian witness and relations the Pilgrims maintained with the Indians. This comment was followed immediately by Bradford's account of the harvest in October 1621. Bradford writes, "Each person had about a peck of meal a week, or now since harvest, Indian corn in that proportion; and afterwards many wrote at length about their plenty to their friends in England--not feigned but true reports."

One of those true reports is found in "Mourt's Relation"  by Pilgrim Edward Winslow--the only account of the first "Thanksgiving."  Winslow writes: "our harvest being gotten in, our governor sent four men on fowling, that so we might after a special manner rejoice together, after we had gathered the fruits of our which time amongst other recreations, we exercised our Arms, many of the Indians coming amongst us, and amongst the rest their greatest king Massasoyt, with some ninety men, whom for three days we entertained and feasted, and they went out and killed five deer, which they brought to the Plantation and bestowed on our Governor, and upon the Captain and others." 

Winslow concluded, "And although it be not always so plentiful, as it was at this time with us, yet by the goodness of God, we are so far from want, that we often wish you partakers of our plenty." Thanks to the godly men and women who came before us, even in our decline we remain blessed more than any other nation on earth. Jeremiah 4:2 says that if God's people return to Him, "And thou shalt swear, The Lord liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in Him, and in Him shall they glory." This is a promise to the nations. So today, as should be our practice each day, may you have a Psalm 103:2 day, "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits."
Bill Wilson.  

Happy Thanksgiving

Dear Larry,
When I look back on the past year, there is a lot to be thankful for. However, there is nothing I am more thankful for than having you as a continued supporter of the Freedom Foundation.
Together, we have diminished government union power while providing union members a shelter from union bullies.
We have implemented a plan to bankrupt SEIU, our state's largest union. That plan includes TV ads like this one you helped fund (click here to watch). There is empirical evidence our plan is working, but one can also gauge our effectiveness by the desperate attacks on the Freedom Foundation from union bosses.
SEIU knows its days are numbered. The union's lead attorney during a court hearing this month on one of our cases said: "If (the Freedom Foundation) can step on the air hose of money to SEIU by getting individual providers to stop paying dues, (they) are preventing SEIU from financially supporting Democratic candidates for governor and $15-an-hour minimum wage campaigns..."
Thank you for your continued support and investment in the Freedom Foundation.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
Best regards,

Tom McCabe, CEO
Freedom Foundation

Save Saeed

Don't Let Obama, Kerry Forget About
FREEDOM for Pastor Saeed Abedini
Obama MUST Publicly Commit to
Bring Tortured Christian HOME
DEMAND Congress Intervene to
End Obama's Neglect of this American
"Remember those in prison as if you were in prison with them. And those who are suffering as if you were suffering with them." Hebrews 13:3
YOUR URGENT ACTION NEEDED: There has been no greater opportunity to secure imprisoned American pastor Saeed Abedini than the on-going nuclear negotiations between the United States and Iran, negotiations that were extended for another 7 months.
While we've learned Obama has been trading secret letters with Iran's leaders seeking an alliance against the Islamic State butchers, shamefully we have yet to hear about so much as a single letter calling for the freedom of our imprisoned Christian Pastor Saeed Abedini – suffering now with internal injuries from violent beatings endured during more than two years in captivity.
We've also witness Obama trading a known Army deserter for FIVE high-level Taliban terrorists, saying he is committed to leaving no American behind.
What about Saeed?

Gardens to become illegal?

You need to know what toxins are in our food...
Oli Fischer has the details below.
- 'Above Average' Joe

Dear Survivalists,
Right now, laws are being drafted in Washington D.C. to outlaw your ability to grow your own food...
...Because they want you to stay completely dependent on the corporate food supply system.
Believe it or not, American families are the most at-risk, even more than the poor souls in the 3rd World.
Because Americans are 100% completely dependent on massive food conglomerates like Monsanto...
...Corporations that treat Americans like lab rats for their terrifying research on the very food that’s supposed to sustain and nourish you.
They’ve mixed fish DNA into tomatoes, scorpion DNA into cabbage, and even syringed pesticides directly into the DNA of the food at your local grocery store...
...Foods that are proven to cause cancer in test animals.
Most developed countries have banned these toxic foods, but not the US.
The food conglomerates and politicians in America believe that you will just sit back and take it...
It doesn’t matter what kind of vile concoction they put on the shelves, they think that you’ll turn a blind eye and feed it to your family.
But one man has spent the last 7 years perfecting the perfect solution...
Thousands of Americans are telling Monsanto where to stick its toxic foods and slashing their grocery bills with this system.
In Liberty,
Oli Fischer



Dear Larry,

This weekend, I spent some time sharing my message with the good people of Iowa.

I spoke about the importance of upholding our Judeo-Christian values and the Constitution, expanding opportunity rather than government dependency, and the dangers of political correctness.

I talked about how I’m working to once again create a government that conforms to the will of the people.

My message was well received because I believe the American people are ready for a new direction. People are tired of an incompetent government that sticks its nose in everyone’s business, making life harder and more expensive for the average person to pursue the American Dream.

I hope you’ll help me as I work to share this message with as many people as possible by making a secure contribution to USA First PAC today.

2014 was a year of great progress. But ultimately, we were given nothing but an opportunity.

The Republican Party was merely loaned power, and now it’s up to us to ensure that they deliver.

Thank you for your continued support.


Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D.

Speaking the “Language” of Firearms

Facebook / Twitter Facebook / Twitter
Sometimes I forget that not everyone has been hanging around guns as long as I have. Which means I offer an apology for the times I use terms with which you might not be familiar. Several readers and viewers recently asked me about some firearms terms I have been throwing around with no regard for other people’s level of experience, so I will share them here. In this episode we address single-stack and double-stack magazines and also hammer-fired and striker-fired actions. If you have more questions about terminology, please ask. We will be happy to answer questions.

where ARE they?

Dear Patriot,

Congressional Republicans left town last week – without taking ANY action to stop Barack Obama’s illegal amnesty order.

Meanwhile, Obama’s Ready4Fight coalition has set up war rooms, is holding rallies, and is bombarding Congress with demands to let Executive Amnesty stand.
It’s 100% up to the Tea Party to stop this unconstitutional order. We have to out-organize and out-lobby these left-wing radicals.

Please make an urgent contribution of $15, $25, $50, or whatever you possibly can afford.  Once again, we are on our own.

It’s clear Congress is terrified of Obama’s cronies.  The politicians won’t defund this unconstitutional monstrosity unless “We the People” make them.

So let’s do it. Please join the fight.

As things stand right now, Congressional Republicans will vote to fully fund Executive Amnesty as part of a giant government spending bill when they return from their vacation.

They claim that they will then “rescind” this funding sometime next year.


These politicians are simply scared to stand up to Barack Obama.  They are getting pounded by this Ready4Fight coalition and haven’t heard from the conservative grassroots.

That’s why the Tea Party must unleash all its might and fury on Congress – starting NOW.

Please give whatever you can to help fund this urgent grassroots campaign.

Congress must not give Obama the money to print and distribute five million work permits.

We can’t wait to try to stop Obama “next year.”  The fight is here, and it is now!

We must swarm local House and Senate offices while the politicians are back home.

We need to show them that “We the People” demand they stand up and defend our Constitution.

We need to force these politicians to defund this illegal executive order right away.

Remember, House Republicans could have stayed in town last week and fought.  They could have voted to defund Executive Amnesty before Obama and his Ready4Fight radicals got organized.

But they didn’t.  Instead, they left town hours before Obama even issued his illegal decree!

Please, help us fight to defund Executive Amnesty.

Please give whatever you can right now.

Congress will shortly vote to fully fund Executive Amnesty unless the Tea Party takes a stand!

Thank you so much for your help.

Memorial Service
Rev 14:13
And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.  (KJV)

We are here today in loving memory of Sister Norma Tyler.  The hard part is dealing with our loss but none of us would want to bring her back from heaven to the pain and sorrow of this wicked old world here below.  We have the comforting assurance of God’s word that for the believer in Christ, death is to be absent from the body and present with the Lord.  2Cor.5:8.  
The Bible says that it is appointed unto men once to die and after this the judgment.  Heb 9:27.  There is a judgment for the just and a judgment for the unjust. The Saved will be rewarded for their faithful service at the Judgment Seat of Christ.  Rom 14:10. But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.  The unsaved will also receive their due reward at the Great White Throne judgment.  Rev 20:11-15.  And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. 

The difference between being saved and not being saved is found in the Gospel.  Rom 1:16. For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 

I believe Sister Tyler would want us to stress the truth of the Gospel today.  Paul wrote to Timothy under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit about how the Gospel is worthy to be received.  1Tim 1:15.  This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. 
He also gave one of the clearest descriptions of what the Gospel is all about in 1Cor 15:1-4.  Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:  
It is at times like this when we all need to look into our own hearts and examine ourselves and consider the question:  How do I stand with God?  Are you lost in sin?  Or, have you by faith, trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal savior?  The Bible says in Jn 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. 

As we prepare to move on with our lives, let us remember that God created man in an upright condition but man unmade himself by transgressing Gods law.  Rom 5:12. Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:   Rom.3:23.  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;   and Rom. 6:23. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

 The only remedy for our sin problem is Jesus Christ.  Lk 19:10. For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.  Matt 1:21. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.  Jn 3:16. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Jn.17:3. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 

As we do our best to bring some closure to the departure of our loved one, we remember the Bible asks the age-old question:  If a man die, shall he live again?  Job14:14. 
God’s word also gives us the answer to the question.  Job 19:25   For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:  and though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:  Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another… 

The New Testament story of the resurrection of Lazarus in John chapter eleven reminds us that the Son of God has power to raise the dead.  In fact, Christ is the resurrection. 
John 11:25-27.  Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:  And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? 
For the closing benediction, let us pray. 

Heavenly Father, Thank you for the gift of life.  Thank you for the fond memories we have of our loved ones who have passed away.  More than anything else, thank you for the gift of spiritual life through your Son and His saving Gospel.  We come into this world with nothing and we leave the world the same way.  You formed us from the dust of the ground and it is back to the earth that our bodies go in death - until the resurrection.  Dust goes to dust and ashes to ashes.  The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away.  Blessed be the name of the Lord.  AMEN.

WSRP Comment

WASHINGTON, D.C., November 20 – RNC Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on President Obama’s executive overreach:

"We are a nation of immigrants, and we are also a nation of laws and limited executive power. The President repeatedly said he did not have the authority to take this action. We agreed with the President when he said, 'this notion that I can just change the laws unilaterally is just not true.' We wish he had kept his word to the American people. The Constitution does not grant the President the power to act as a one-man legislature when he disagrees with Congress and with voters.

"The last time the President issued a politically motivated executive order to change our immigration laws, he precipitated a crisis at our border, leaving thousands of children at risk and ripping apart the families he claims to want to protect. Granting amnesty does not secure our borders. Sadly, rather than trying to solve our country's immigration problems, the President's actions are intended to poison the legislative process at a time when he should be working to bring Americans together.

"If he believed that his actions were urgent and that he had the constitutional authority all along, why did he wait six years into his presidency to act? If he believed he was doing the will of the American people and acting in the best interests of American workers and those waiting in line to become Americans, why did he wait until after this last election?

"I am confident that the Republican Congress will do everything within their power to uphold the Constitution. The American people rejected the administration’s policies during the midterms; they will do so again in 2016."

I HOPE so Susan but their track record lately has been pretty poor. LJK

Obey the King

We're allowing ourselves just 10 minutes of depression this morning as we absorb the news.  

Pres. Obama has nullified the nation's immigration laws. He's defied the Constitution. He has disdained the voters.  You've already heard the news: President Obama isn't satisfied with his current title; he's assumed the power to write his own laws, giving amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants without the authorization from Congress.
This is a disaster for American constitutional democracy and struggling American workers looking for jobs. If nothing changes, five million illegal aliens will be handed Social Security numbers and work permits. They will be able to get jobs as security guards in nuclear installations, working within the secured area of U.S. airports, and in every other field.
ONLY Congress can stop this power grab. The President can't do anything unless Congress gives him the money to do it! But as usual, many Members of Congress who agree with our views in the abstract don't want to soil their hands and fight Obama in the next three weeks, when it matters. We desperately need your help right now to make Congress block this gigantic Amnesty.
There are three actions we need you to take TODAY:
Call your U.S. Representative's local offices.
Right now, leaders in Congress are weighing passing a spending bill that would last all the way through next September. With Sen. Harry Reid in charge of the Senate until January, it's certain that such a bill would surrender the power of the purse to the President for yet another year. We need Congress to pass a short-term funding resolution, until the new Congressional leadership takes over. Then, we need the new Congress to block funding for carrying this Amnesty out. It's critical that Congress knows you are not letting them rest one day. Call them today, back at their home district offices.

Send the new fax to your Representative.
Instead of peace and quiet back in their home offices next week, we need Representatives to face stacks of faxes on their desks from NumbersUSA members!
This fax will tell your Representative to vote for only a short-term funding measure this year, so that next year they can defund the Amnesty.
Make a donation to roll back this amnesty -- and have your gift matched 2-for-1!
With Pres. Obama ignoring Congress and making his own law, this thing could get away from us very, very fast. In fact, this Amnesty will go through unless we get Congress to defund it.
We are throwing EVERYTHING and the kitchen sink at making Congress stand up against the Amnesty. Remember, if they do nothing, 5 MILLION illegal aliens will receive Social Security numbers, work permits, and more.
We have a team of three dozen professionals working around the clock to block this Amnesty. NumbersUSA has led the way in blocking every Amnesty proposal in Congress for the last 14 years. We plan on winning again... but we need your help!
We need to raise $90,000 EXTRA dollars this week! Before midnight Saturday! I know you've helped before; NOW IS THE TIME to help again. Please give!
If you give us $25, we'll receive your $25,
          plus $50 more
in matching funds.
                    And if you give us $100,
                           we'll receive your $100, plus $200 more!
I'll give to defund amnesty
