Free Speech Assault In The Senate

Today the Senate is going to vote on an effort, called the DISCLOSE ACT, to throttle free speech and over-turn a Supreme Court ruling that gutted the anti-free speech efforts of the McCain-Finegold law limiting the free speech alternatives of Americans in order to decrease competition against the establishment’s favored groups, including Unions and government agencies, in the marketplace of ideas.

UPDATE: Clear Act- giving Treasury Sec to monitor everything (CO2 emissions) added to Disclose Act- first speech, now commerce http://j.mp/9ROusG

The onerous DICLOSE ACT is one of the INTOLERABLE ACTS Obama is trying to implement as part of the ultra liberal agenda to fundamentally transform America from a Constitution Republic based on Christian virtue, thrift, and independence into a one-party welfare state based on social Darwinism and collectivist fringe ideologies.

The “fence sitters” who cannot decide whether or not to support the fullest protection of the first amendment include the like of Olympia Snow, a Senator who lacks any clear philosophical center and who is just as apt to vote for as against any given bill based on her own assessment of her political future. Susan Collins is also considered to be a fence sitter on this landmark anti-first amendment bill that would render your first amendment protection null and void, establishing a principle whereby the Political Class can protect its incumbency by making it next to impossible for average people to participate in the marketplace of ideas.

The numbers for these two fence sitters are:

Collins numbers are:  202-225-2523 or 207-945-0416.

Snowe’s numbers are: 202-225-5344 or 207-874-0883.

If this INTOLERABLE ACT passes and is signed, it would essentially shut down most political advertising that is not being done by and for the Political Class empowering Unions and groups like ACORN and gutting the Tea Party and other organizations that are not favored by the Political Class, which could in turn lead to increased non-compliance and further erode the legitimacy of the government in the eyes of the People.

Union-label Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has hatched a plan to ram the speech-killing “Disclose Act” through the Senate TODAY.

This is an emergency, so please call and/or email your U.S. Senators IMMEDIATELY and insist they vote for free speech and against the “Disclose Act” (S. 3628).

Senator Bob Casey: call (202) 224-6324 or e-mail

Senator Arlen Specter: call (202) 224-4254 or e-mail

The fact is, Big Labor’s cronies on Capitol Hill are just days away from ramming the “Disclose Act” down the throats of the American people.

In fact, this dangerous bill has already passed the House.

Though the so-called “Disclose Act” is being sold by Big Labor as a bill to provide greater transparency, its real intent is to harass and intimidate those who might criticize members of Congress into silence during the midterm elections and beyond.

Big Labor doesn’t want us, or anyone for that matter, to be able to inform the American people which candidates stand with them — and which ones stand with the union elite.

But, of course, like all the other insider games here in Washington, there is a big loophole.

You see, Big Labor is exempted.

They’ll still be free to spend their BILLION dollar forced-dues war chest in virtually any way they see fit in complete secrecy.

If passed, the so-called “Disclose Act” — more properly referred to as the “Incumbent Protection Act” — would:

  • Impose sweeping new regulations on organizations like the National Right to Work Committee, to keep them quiet and cripple their effectiveness during election years;
  • Force grassroots organizations to publicize and release the names of their top five contributors making them vulnerable to threats, intimidation or worse from political dissidents;
  • Require organizations to expose the location of their top donor’s home and workplace in the disclaimer at the end of every television ad.

I hope you know I would shut the doors of the Committee in a heart beat rather than give the union bosses the name of even one of our members.

That’s why it’s vital you act IMMEDIATELY!

You and I have come too far and, I believe, are too close to victory to be shut down by one of Big Labor’s dirty legislative tricks.

So please help me fight back today!

That’s why I ask you to take a stand for freedom of speech, your rights and your National Right to Work Committee and to contact your U.S. Senators and insist they vote for free speech and against the so-called “Disclose Act” (S. 3628).

Senator Bob Casey: call (202) 224-6324 or e-mail

Senator Arlen Specter: call (202) 224-4254 or e-mail

The so-called “Disclose Act” is too dangerous to ignore. Please act TODAY!

Sincerely,

Mark Mix

P.S. The union bosses know they are running out of options to save their handpicked politicians before the November Elections. That’s why they are going all out to silence you and me.

Please take a moment to contact your U.S. Senators and insist they vote for free speech and against the so-called “Disclose Act” (S. 3628).

P.P.S. The fact is opposition from freedom-oriented groups like your National Right to Work Committee had the “Disclose Act” bottled up in the House of Representatives until the National Rifle Association cut a deal with Nancy Pelosi to exempt itself and a few large liberal groups. This is all the more reason you must stand up and make your voice heard in the Senate right away.
