John Dennis: Defeat Nancy Pelosi Money Blast Today

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

From an email today from John Dennis:

We took a major step on the road to defeating Nancy Pelosi. Thanks to your support I am the official Republican nominee taking on Nancy Pelosi for her congressional seat this November. I am honored to be one of the few Liberty candidates to have won a Republican primary.

Our opponent couldn’t be more infamous, reviled or polarizing. Nancy Pelosi has become the symbol of unconstitutional stimulus schemes, baliouts, nationalized healthcare programs, and now an ever growing undeclared war in Afghanistan.

With your support I continue to stand against these policies and will take the debate directly to and against the current Speaker of the House. Together we can retire Nancy Pelosi this November and begin restoring our Constitution.

We have made great strides since winning the Primary! Our campaign has hired a campaign manager and a communications director, we have taken on new fundraisers and this week we are opening a brand new Headquarters. Our team is also putting the finishing touches on new branding, web and advertising campaigns.

In order to stock up Headquarters with yard signs, push cards, t-shirts, bumper stickers and other volunteer materials we are having a Money Blast TODAY!

Can you make a contribution of $20 in order to help us purchase these promotional materials?

As Pelosi’s approval rating continues to plummet our political capital and momentum is on the rise. Nancy Pelosi must be retired; now is the time, I am the candidate, you are the resistance!

Stay tuned to our campaign as we continue to roll out new and exciting initiatives. I look forward to working with you over the next three months.

In Liberty,
John Dennis

HellCare for all!

Ron Paul Endorses John Dennis for U.S. Congress

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

Please support the Mad As Hell Money Bomb TODAY Jan 7th 2010.

LAKE JACKSON, Texas — Congressman Ron Paul today endorsed John Dennis in his Republican bid for United States Congress. Mr. Dennis, a successful entrepreneur and longtime liberty-minded GOP activist, is running to unseat Nancy Pelosi in California’s 8th district.

Said Dr. Paul, “John Dennis is truly committed to Liberty, personal freedom, fiscal discipline and a more sensible foreign policy. I am very happy that John has decided to run for Congress and wholeheartedly endorse him.”

For more information on John Dennis, please visit www.JohnDennis2010.com.

Congressman Paul’s endorsement comes through his Liberty PAC, a Republican leadership PAC committed to supporting Liberty minded candidates across the country.

Said Liberty PAC director Jesse Benton, “John Dennis is a terrific candidate who is going to ask tough questions like: ‘Why is Nancy Pelosi running up crushing budget deficits?’, “Why has she allowed President Obama to expand the war in Afghanistan?’, and, ‘Why has Nancy Pelosi refused to support transparency and accountability at the Federal Reserve.’ The constituents of California’s 8th district deserve answers to these questions. John Dennis will hold her accountable.”

C-SPAN Challenges Congress to Open Health Care Talks to TV Coverage

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010


The head of C-SPAN has implored Congress to open up the last leg of health care reform negotiations to the public, as top Democrats lay plans to hash out the final product among themselves.

C-SPAN CEO Brian Lamb wrote to leaders in the House and Senate Dec. 30 urging them to open “all important negotiations, including any conference committee meetings,” to televised coverage on his network.

“The C-SPAN networks will commit the necessary resources to covering all of the sessions LIVE and in their entirety,” he wrote.

In a Tuesday afternoon press conference on health legislation negotiations, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared to object to the premise behind the request.

“There has never been a more open process for any legislation in anyone who’s served here’s experience,” she said.

However, Republican leaders sided with C-SPAN’s calls for transparency.

“As House Republican leader, I can confidently state that all House Republicans strongly endorse your proposal and stand ready to work with you to make it a reality,” Minority Leader John Boehner wrote in response to the letter. “Hard-working families won’t stand for having the future of their health care decided behind closed doors. These secret deliberations are a breeding ground for more of the kickbacks, shady deals and special-interest provisions that have become business as usual in Washington.”

Democratic leaders could bypass the traditional conference committee process, in which lawmakers from both parties and chambers meet to reconcile differences between the House and Senate versions of a bill. Top Democrats in the House, Senate and White House were meeting Tuesday evening to figure out the final product in three-way talks before sending it back to both chambers for a final vote.

“We don’t even know yet whether there’s going to be a conference,” Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Chris Van Hollen said responding to a question about the C-SPAN request. “It’s not clear whether or not that’s going to happen yet.”

This format would seem ideal for closed-door meetings, which congressional Democrats have used many times to figure out sensitive provisions in the health care bill — though President Obama pledged during the campaign to open up health care talks to C-SPAN’s cameras.

“That’s what I will do in bringing all parties together, not negotiating behind closed doors, but bringing all parties together, and broadcasting those negotiations on C-SPAN so that the American people can see what the choices are,” Obama said at a debate against Hillary Clinton in Los Angeles on Jan. 31, 2008.

Asked about the request to Congress, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said he hadn’t seen the letter.

“I know the president is going to begin discussions today on health care to iron out differences between the House and Senate bills,” he said.

Lamb urged Congress in his letter to fling open the doors in the final stretch of the negotiations.

“President Obama, Senate and House leaders, many of your rank-and-file members, and the nation’s editorial pages have all talked about the value of transparent discussions on reforming the nation’s health care system,” he wrote. “Now that the process moves to the critical stage of reconciliation between the chambers, we respectfully request that you allow the public full access, through television, to legislation that will affect the lives of every single American.”

Lamb said his network would use “the latest technology” to be “as unobtrusive as possible” during the talks.

John Dennis Mad As Hell Money Bomb | Jan 7th ’10

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

On January 7th, a mass fund-raising effort will take place to rally awareness and media attention around the John Dennis’ candidacy. The goal of this event is to raise as much money possible in a twenty-four hour period, shocking the nation with the plausibility of a legitimate challenge to Nancy’s reign.

With Speaker Pelosi’s dismal approval ratings, and John Dennis’ swelling support in the Bay Area and around the country, this event will be a huge success. Strong fund raising numbers will thrust John into the national spotlight and force Speaker Pelosi onto the defensive.

The elitists and special interests will do everything they can to keep us under their thumbs. It is up to US to make a stand. It is up to US to take our country back. It is up to US to tell this government, “We are mad as hell, and we are NOT going to take it anymore!”

Help us spread the word about John Dennis, the money bomb on January 7th, and this historic congressional race.

Pelosi Rams ObamaCare Down America’s Throat!

Pelosi Rams ObamaCare Down America’s Throat!

Higher Premium Costs And Taxes Are The ONLY Sure Thing!
Obama, Pelosi and the Democrats have shut Americans out of the Healthcare debate and ready or not THEY ARE PUSHING FOR A FINAL OBAMACARE VOTE THIS WEEK without debate.

The Final Bill Announced Monday November 2, 2009 is scheduled for a vote just 3 days later on Thursday November 5, 2009.

The 3 DAY LEGISLATION is calculated to buy off as many Congressmen as possible to win a bare majority of 218 votes. Pelosi is determined that she will Ram ObamaCare Down America’s Throat!

But the legislation leaves unanswered many of questions that will determine perhaps dozens of votes. The final timing and outcome of the vote is in question.

We must STOP Pelosi and her dangerous and destructive plan NOW!

Pelosi is giving the Rules Committee the bums rush and it has yet to meet to consider the structure for the healthcare bill debate, They call it a “manager’s amendment” and it will SERVE AS THE VEHICLE FOR THOSE LAST-MINUTE DEALS NEGOTIATED TO GUARANTEE ADDITIONAL VOTES.

It is all a big game to Pelosi to rollout the 1,900-page bill not even reviewed by the CBO that has produced even more questions about its costs and its ability to reduce the deficit. Initial REPORTS FROM CAPITAL HILL SHOW DISAPPOINTMENT FROM LIBERAL AND CONSERVATIVE DEMOCRATS alike about what is in the bill and what’s been left out.

Obamacare which does nothing to cut costs and improve care or even guarantees a reduction in premiums must be stopped just look at what it will do!

Seniors lose $500 Billion from Medicare – O NO ObamaCare!

You pay TAXES on Employer health care plans – O NO ObamaCare!

Uninsured forced to spend 20% of income to be insured – O NO ObamaCare!

Retired Union Members healthcare benefits get TAXED – O NO ObamaCare!

NEW TAXES on Americans earning less than $250,000/yr – O NO ObamaCare!

Americans PAY an additional estimated $3500/yr for coverage – O NO ObamaCare!

Cancer patient care rationing – O NO ObamaCare!

FAX Congress NOW! STOP ObamaCare
Get 10 O NO ObamaCare Stickers For Yourself, Family And Friends
What will STOP “ObamaCare”… is the ObamaCare CHART.

House Minority Leader John Boehner and other Republicans asked the Joint Economic Committee to draw up another chart the ObamaCare Chart.

To the average American, it looks like a maze that they’ll have to navigate before receiving medical care. AND IT IS — the parts in white already exist, and the colored boxes are the new entities, offices, requirements, reports, and subsidies the Democrats’ bill would create.

Don’t hold your breath. Once again, the Democrats are using their majority power like they’re dictators, trying to keep the TRUTH from the American people and their Representatives in Congress. We MUST not let them succeed! That’s why we’ve set up our site to enable you to send “blast faxes” to every single Senator and Representative on Capitol Hill, demanding that they read every line of the ObamaCare bill, look at every single detail exposed by this new chart, and KILL this new attempt at a government takeover of American healthcare!

Please don’t delay — Congress is in session right now, and if we don’t stand up and FIGHT against the radical Left, there might be nothing left of the America we know and love for our children! Take action now!

No Compromise on Audit the Fed!

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Our grassroots Revolution has set its sights on restoring a sound monetary policy to our nation, and every day we are awakening more of our countrymen to the dangers of Federal Reserve secrecy and its stranglehold on our economy.

A year ago, no one in the political establishment would have believed that a bill to thoroughly audit the Fed would have almost two-thirds of the House (including every Republican representative and nearly one hundred Democrats) and a quarter of the Senate on board.

Certainly, no one would have bet that three-fourths of the American people would support such an audit.

As many of you may have heard by now, recent statements from Representative Barney Frank, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, have indicated that the House will vote on Audit the Fed in the next few months.

However, rather than voting on HR 1207 as a standalone bill, many in Congress hope to roll it into the comprehensive regulatory reform package recently proposed by the White House.

This reform package grants new, more comprehensive powers to the Fed and strengthens the government’s control over our economy. C4L and other friends of liberty stand in opposition to this proposal, as well as any other attempt to convert this historic movement for transparency into yet another rubber-stamping of politics as usual.

It is imperative that Audit the Fed come before the House and Senate on its own merits.

The American people stand behind a thorough audit of the Fed, and we should not be adding additional powers when we don’t fully know what is being done with the ones they currently have.

Call Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office today at (202) 225-0100 and urge her to stand with the American people by giving the Audit the Fed bill full debate and a standalone vote on the House floor.

Click here for contact information for your representatives and senators and ask them to get behind Audit the Fed if they have not yet done so. If they have already cosponsored, tell them to push for a roll call vote on HR 1207 and S 604 on the bills’ own merits.

Our movement has worked hard to bring transparency and accountability to one of the nation’s most secretive institutions. Audit the Fed has received a bipartisan level of support that is very rare in politics today.

Together, we can see a comprehensive audit of the Federal Reserve signed into law, but it should not be accompanied by more of the same interventionist legislation that helped create the current crisis.

In Liberty,
John Tate
