If it is the Law of the Land, politicians MUST obey it too

Last week was a bad week for our country; the Supreme Court saved ObamaCare again! Justice John Roberts betrayed us again!
It has become clear that we can’t count on the courts to stop ObamaCare. We have to do it ourselves.
Congress should have to live under the laws it passes. The Supreme Court should have to live under the laws it upholds. Why is this such a hard concept to understand?
Congress passed ObamaCare against the will of the American people. The Supreme Court has gone out of its way to save ObamaCare, twice. Yet Congress, Supreme Court justices, and their staff enjoy subsidies that protect them from ObamaCare’s astronomical costs. In the meantime, regular Americans like you and me are left with the bill.
It’s time to end the unfairness. If you and I have to pay full price for ObamaCare, so should they.
I guarantee that if members of Congress and the Supreme Court had to live under this law ObamaCare would already be gone. 
Larry, this is unacceptable, government officials know how terrible ObamaCare is and they’re hiding from their own bad law. Send a message to your congressmen tell them to end Congress and the Supreme Court’s ObamaCare exemption.
Once they see the damage ObamaCare has done to their own health care they will have to change it. Let your voice be heard, tell Congress to end the ObamaCare exemption.
Together we will make freedom work.

Slowly, Slowly, Slowly

by Tom Minnery

This September, Tom Minnery will step back from his position as CitizenLink president. To honor his nearly 30 years in the public policy arena at Focus on the Family and CitizenLink, we decided to run a ‘Best of Tom’ article series. This piece was published in Citizen magazine in May 1992.

Slowly, slowly, slowly people are getting involved in their communities, trying to take back their corner of the culture.

Team –

Jay Inslee just struck out. He struck out on his state capital gains income tax. He struck out on his a cap-and-tax scheme. And, he even struck out on his fuel mandate.

Shift has worked hard to shine the light on Inslee’s agenda. We exposed the negative consequences that Inslee’s priorities would have on Washington’s working families, because we knew the truth would eventually force him to give up. And, it worked.

Shift is committed to continuing our efforts. But, we need your help. Will you consider contributing to our cause today?

The state budget will not include Inslee’s capital gains income tax or his cap-and-tax scheme. But, that’s not all. Inslee could not prevent the inclusion of the consumer protection provision in the transportation package. That means he won’t be able to jam through his fuel mandate by executive order without serious side effects.

Shift has been dedicated to ensuring responsibility and accountability won out by exposing Inslee’s agenda and shining the light on its consequences. Due to our relentless efforts, we can now declare victory for this time around.

Our work is only possible because of our faithful supporters. Consider helping us by donating to our cause today.

Unfortunately, the far-left is also relentless. You can bet that Democrats and their far-left supporters are already planning and organizing news ways to accomplish their priorities. That’s why our work here at Shift is so important.

Shift is ready and willing to meet the challenge presented. We are dedicated to shining the light and exposing the truth. You can count on us to make a difference and shift the debate in Olympia because we’ve proved we’re up to the mission. Can we count on your support?

Please help us continue our work by making a contribution of $3 or more. Help us meet our month-end goal and allow us to continue pushing forward toward our goal of shifting the debate in Olympia.

With deep gratitude,

Matthew, Josh and the rest of the Shift WA Team

White House predicts 127,000 new unaccompanied alien minors will cross the border this year

We know how to fight this, but we need your help now!

Dear Member,

Better get ready, because another massive surge of so-called "unaccompanied alien children" (UACs) is moving across our southern border right now.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has just unearthed an incriminating year-old PowerPoint presentation to Congress prepared by the White House and four Cabinet departments. The presentation predicted that 60,000 illegal alien minors would cross in 2014, and that twice as many would cross this year, in 2015.

You'll recall that Obama and other officials claimed that they were taken by surprise at the border surge last year, but this slideshow reveals the truth and proves that the White House knew what was coming all along.

Do you remember watching TV news day after day after day, showing the minors crossing the border and then turning themselves in to the first Border Patrol agent they could find?

You remember that because these UACs were from Central America and they were operating under a loophole in the law that allowed them to disappear into the U.S. population in the custody of family members or friends already in this country. Court hearings were set for the minors, and guess what -- hardly any showed up for the hearings, and virtually none have been deported.

America was scammed last year, and according to the White House, the scam isn't over! We're going to be slammed twice as hard this year.


How much will this disaster cost the American people? The slideshow said the surge would cost taxpayers more than $2 Billion.

So, what can we do about it? Better said, what can NumbersUSA and our millions of citizen activists do together to end illegal immigration once and for all? LOTS OF THINGS!

The House Judiciary Committee has approved 4 terrific bills that, if signed into law, would help end the problem of illegal immigration. These bills would strengthen interior enforcement and close loopholes at the border:

1. Rep. Lamar Smith's (R-Texas) mandatory E-Verify bill, the Legal Workforce Act (H.R.1147) would require all businesses to check new hires through this web-based system within three years.

2. Rep. John Carter's (R-Texas) Protection of Children Act (H.R.1149) would prevent unaccompanied alien children (UACs) without a legitimate humanitarian claim from using loopholes and inconsistencies in immigration law to remain in the U.S. and instead be returned home.

3. Rep. Jason Chaffetz' Asylum Reform and Border Protection Act of 2015 (H.R.1153) would make critical improvements to an asylum system that is overwhelmed with fraud and abuse.

4. Rep. Trey Gowdy's bill, the Michael Davis, Jr. in Honor of State and Local Law Enforcement Act (H.R.1148), would bolster the interior immigration enforcement system dismantled by the Obama Administration and defund President Obama's unconstitutional executive actions on immigration.

Wouldn't you like to live in an America with these laws in place? It can happen! As I said, these bills have already passed in committee. They need a VOTE on the House floor to advance to the Senate. So, again, it depends on House Speaker John Boehner to allow these desperately needed bills a fair vote.

The question is: Will Boehner do it? It probably depends on outside pressure from NumbersUSA and other citizens.

We will need to send hundreds of thousands of free faxes and have our members make many thousands of toll-free phone calls to get this matter enough noise to force the Speaker to act. We've done it before, and we will do it again.

Well, I said "free", but obviously our faxing system and our toll-free lines are anything BUT free! It costs us a fortune to support this enormous volume of citizen activism.

We all want to stop the surge at the border. We all want to end illegal immigration. But letting up is not an option!

NumbersUSA cannot do this alone. We need you and the rest of our members to help fund this effort, and course, send the faxes and make the phone calls.

Will you help? We need you to donate today.


Prefer our old donation form?

Keep the faith, and don't ever give up!

VP Operations, NumbersUSA

P.S. If you are sick, out of work, living on a small fixed income, please do NOT donate. We only want you to donate if you are able to do so. Thanks.

April, May & June 2015

It is time for the 2nd quarterly Report for 2015. Pastor completed a series on “Revival”, “Judging James” and is now preaching a series on “Judging Job.”  Audio sermons are available on Sermon.net/tacwash. Brother Jim Turner finished a study on “The End Times” in our Sunday school hour and is now teaching on “The Bride.”   

First Friday of the Month Fellowship, was a blessing as usual.  In April, Elder Jim Turner preached on “The Forsaken Son of God.” In May, Elder Jim Tweet preached on “He’s Alive” and in June, Elder Larry Killion preached on “Modern Revivals.”  There is also a place on the front page of our website with LINKS to the audio clips of all these FFF services.  

Our Tract Ministry recorded 180 tracts handed out this quarter by Pastor. Others are also passing out tracts but they do not record it.  Our supply of tracts is starting to run low and Elder Wilbert Ellis and the congregation in Florence, Ky are going to send us some more “ammunition.”  Speaking of ammunition, Pastor and Sister Marion have a monthly Range Day that is a great stress reliever.  Pastor did his own taxes this year and so far, no repercussions. The last few years have been terrible on that subject.  Good reports from our annual Doctor check up. We are looking forward to the Bible Conference in Naples, Idaho over the July 4th weekend.  

We had a wonderful visit from Brother Lloyd Linklater.  He is one of our out of State members.  He has been diagnosed with stage four cancer and was told he has six months to live.  We are praying for him.  God has blessed him with a peace in this trial.  He is now under hospice care.  Brother Jim Turner also had a bout with the big C.  Surgery removed it from his face and they did some plastic surgery afterwards.  The good news is they got it all and he is recovering nicely. 

Three visitors are regulars in attendance.  Two of our College students are home for the summer and one is working a job at Western Washington University in Bellingham.  It is great to have Blaine and Jacob back in the services.  Congratulations to Laura and Abby Russell on earning their BA degrees.  We pray constantly for the Lord to save souls, add the saved to the church, heal the sick and keep us faithful in His service.  We pray also for our nation and for our military personnel. Pastor is active with the Tacoma 912 Patriots, True the Vote, and is about to have a final CERT drill and graduate as a Community Emergency Response Team member.   

We support the mission work in Seattle to the Latino community in South Park where Elder Ted Tweet is laboring and the work in Mabini, Mindanao where Elder Dan Baldemor is laboring, and the work in Romania where Elder Raul  Enyedi labors.  Although we are limited in what we can give financially, we pray earnestly and with out ceasing for brethren laboring on the mission fields of Oklahoma, Mexico, Australia, India, Africa and Thailand.  Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem and for repentance in the United States of America.  AMEN.

TTV Update


HOUSTON, TX. -- June 29, 2015: True the Vote (TTV), the nation's leading voters’ rights and election integrity organization, today released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to deny certiorari for the noncitizen voter registration case, Kobach, et al. v. Election Assistance Commission, et al. (Case nos. 14-3062, 14-3072).

The plaintiffs originally sought permission to require individuals in Arizona and Kansas utilizing the federal voter registration form to provide proof of U.S. citizenship when applying. An amicus brief filed by the Public Interest Legal Foundation relied on True the Vote’s research to demonstrate how current mechanisms were failing to block admitted noncitizens from voter registration.

This Supreme Court development is only a brief setback in the greater cause for improving citizenship verification mechanisms in voter registration,” True the Vote Founder Catherine Engelbrecht said. “With the judicial option taken off the table for now, states can now focus on truly owning their data as they serve resident citizens. Improved data ownership means embracing technologies readily available which verify customer inputs in real time. This new approach also requires improved information sharing between state agencies – with citizens holding all parties accountable.

Today’s decision is yet another reminder that if citizens demand improved election integrity, they must first look to themselves,” Engelbrecht continued. “True the Vote will continue to lead the effort toward a more trustworthy and engaging election experience for all.”

True the Vote (TTV) is an IRS-designated 501(c)(3) voters’ rights organization, founded to inspire and equip voters for involvement at every stage of our electoral process. TTV empowers organizations and individuals across the nation to actively protect the rights of legitimate voters, regardless of their political party affiliation.
