Political emails: Tony Perkins, Vitter and help Gowdy destroy Clinton
 

Hillary-Clinton-benghaziIf you have been receiving political email in your inbox, asking you to write a letter to the legislature, contribute to a candidacy, attend a fundraiser, watch a film clip and so on, you are not alone.

 

We receive our share of them too.

The political email industry has become a major specialty, a billion dollar industry, a must for anybody wanting to raise monies for a run or a political cause.

There are experts in the industry who will only serve conservative or liberal candidates and issues.  

if a candidate or issue-organization does not have a strong email marketing plan to further its respective campaign, it will be eating dust as others are sending out emails providing information and/or requesting  money daily.

Below are three emails we received today from conservatives.   

The first is an email we received from US Senator David Vitter who is a candidate for Louisiana Governor.  His campaign will almost daily send out an email blast to those who agree to receive them. Today's email offers his plan on improving roads and bridges and relieving traffic.  The second is an email blast from an organization requesting money to re-elect Trey Gowdy, the member of the US House of Representatives who heads the committee investigating Hillary Clinton and Benghazi.  The third is a daily email blast from the former Louisiana politician, Tony Perkins of the Family Resource Center.  His message today is religious liberty, Christianity is being threatened and a contribution to his organization will help prevent the destruction of Christian life and beliefs in America.

In fairness, there are numerous organizations, both conservative and liberal, who blast emails on a daily basis, providing information, opportunities and who seek contributions.

VITTER

Are you sick and tired of Louisiana highways with obvious bottlenecks being completely ignored by the state?

Louisiana currently spends more on transportation bureaucrats than on concrete and asphalt. That results in sitting in traffic instead of working productively or spending time with family. Well I’m sick and tired of it too – and I’m going to do something about it.

Be one of the first to read our plan on relieving traffic and improving roads and bridges.


Today I released my proposals to relieve traffic congestion and build a better infrastructure as part of my plan, “Together, Louisiana Strong: Our blueprint for building a brighter future.” Chapter 4 is called “Building World Class Infrastructure to Relieve Traffic Congestion and Grow Jobs.” 

Read our new chapter of Together, Louisiana Strong today called: “Building World Class Infrastructure to Relieve Traffic Congestion and Grow Jobs.” Please read, and respond.

Our plan details how to strengthen the Transportation Trust Fund and provide much more protection for infrastructure spending. I will prioritize trust fund dollars for new highway construction and repair and ensure that trust fund revenue sources like the vehicle sales tax actually go into the trust fund rather than for unrelated programs. I’ve also put together some cutting edge, innovative ideas. And after you read it, please respond and provide feedback.

Stephen, we’ve been sending you chapters from our plan, because I’m completely focused on facing Louisiana’s enormous challenges head on—with strong leadership and real solutions—and taking advantage of historic opportunities and make great gains.

See the first four chapters of Together, Louisiana Strong here.

This isn’t something I just threw together. I’ve compiled our plan by meeting with Louisianians of all walks of life and by listening to their ideas for building a brighter future. I’ve held 380 Town Hall Meetings and 204 Telephone Town Halls. As a candidate for Governor, I’ve held 12 Leadership Forums on the key challenges we face as a state specifically to develop this blueprint, with dozens of informal meetings and conference calls in addition.

I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts on our plan about relieving traffic, growing jobs and fixing bad roads and bridges.

CHRISTIANS TARGETED

Suicide is tragically rampant in the U.S. military. You can help—as long as you don't help in a "Christian" way.

That's what they told Chaplain Joseph Lawhorn. At a training session on suicide prevention, he told soldiers about his own struggles with depression—and how faith helped him through. He offered participants a handout listing resources for struggling service members, some faith-based and some secular.

On Thanksgiving Day, he found himself in the office of his boss at Fort Benning, Georgia, being handed a "Letter of Concern" accusing him of unlawfully proselytizing.

The letter deemed it unacceptable to list "Army resources on one side" of the handout "and a biblical approach to handling depression on the other side"—because it was "impossible for those in attendance to receive the information without also receiving the biblical information."

This cannot stand. When a military chaplain cannot openly speak about his faith, military disarmament has reached a level that no budget cuts could ever produce.

Regarding religious expression as a threat is not only ridiculous . . .it's dangerous.But this is what we're up against with a commander-in-chief who expresses greater hostility toward the Christian faith than any President in our history.

Please help FRC Action fight back. Give a generous contribution today.

What we are witnessing is a surge of hostility toward Christian faith in America's military. This is an attack on the freedom to believe, the freedom to live according to one's faith. Any attack on Christians for their faith is egregious, but it's even more outrageous when a Christian chaplain can't be a Christian chaplain!

The most incredible recent example: Lt. Commander Wes Modder, a 19-year veteran Navy chaplain who served some of the most elite fighting forces in the military, the Navy SEALs.

Chaplain Modder was once referred to by his commanding officer, Capt. J.R. Fahs, as "the best of the best." But after he wasaskedto offer moral guidance, he responded with a Bible-based response on sexual morality. That's when his assistant, a "married" homosexual, secretly combed through the chaplain's private counseling files, forwarding them to representatives at the Office of Equal Opportunity as evidence of "discrimination"—and the chaplain was ordered to clean out his office and go home.

No opportunity to defend himself . . . justremoved—because he reportedly "failed to show tolerance and respect."

In America's military today, Christians are being forced underground or to leave.

As Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin put it, "if the Navy wants a chaplain corps, they have to be prepared for chaplains to be chaplains. A chaplain isn't worth anything if he isn't allowed to minister and counsel according to his faith. If the Navy won't allow a chaplain to be a chaplain, then the chaplain becomes nothing more than a social worker."

This is exactly why FRC Action worked to successfully change the language of the National Defense Authorization Act last year.With the help of conservatives in Congress, who fought to include these protections, the Pentagon is bound by federal law to "accommodate individual expressions of belief of a member of the armed forces reflecting the sincerely held conscience, moral principles, or religious beliefs of the member and, insofar as practicable, may not use such expression of belief as the basis of any adverse personnel action, discrimination, or denial of promotion, schooling, training, or assignment."

So why was Chaplain Modder fired?

Because we have an administration that has little regard for the law. In true Obama fashion, our military is being grotesquely politicized.

We've got to fight this fight.President Obama wants to fundamentally change America, and there's no more powerful place to start than in the U.S. military. If he can silence Christians in the military—if he can silence chaplains in particular, he can force the Left's values and codes of "P.C." speech on the rest of us.

We must take action! I urge you to help us continue leading in this critically important battle.We played a critical role in the drafting of regulations to protect the religious liberties of U.S. servicemen and women. We worked with Congress on a letter to the Secretary of the Army after the Chaplain Lawhorn fiasco. I personally went to the Pentagon for a meeting in the Navy's Chief of Chaplain's office to discuss Chaplain Modder's case.

We'll also be involved with oversight hearings to demand answers as to why they are punishing chaplains for operating according to their religious beliefs.

We are doing everything we can, but we must do more.I need your help.Please give a generous contribution to FRC Action to help us keep the pressure on with this issue in Washington, D.C., and throughout the U.S. military—and to continue all of our critically important work on Capitol Hill.

Today I commit to you that we will stand up for every Christian in the military.But we need your help. Thank you in advance for responding today.God bless you.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
