Sen. DeMint Wins CHQ's 2012 Presidential Straw Poll for November
CHQ -- In the first 2012 presidential straw poll, a majority of conservative activists chose Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) as their favorite Republican candidate for the 2012 race (winning 53% of the votes in the month of November).  Gov. Sarah Palin was second at 38%.

Joseph Farah:  The Republican sellout begins
World Net Daily - Farah is furious that it already looks like the GOP House leadership is starting to "compromise" with Obama. Instead of promising to ditch the disastrous and unconstitutional Obamacare law, GOP leaders are signaling that they'll keep some provisions - clearly a sellout of the conservatives who put them in power.

Action Alert - The DREAM Act 

In a matter of DAYS the DREAM Act will come to a vote.  This could be our last chance to help undocumented youth.

The purpose of the Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act, also called the DREAM Act, is to help those individuals who meet certain requirements, have an opportunity to enlist in the military or go to college and have a path to citizenship which they otherwise would not have without this legislation. Supporters of the DREAM Act believe it is vital not only to the people who would benefit from it, but also the United States as a whole. It would give an opportunity to undocumented immigrant students who have been living in the U.S. since they were young, a chance to contribute back to the country that has given so much to them and a chance to utilize their hard earned education and talents.  Click here for more information regarding this act. 

The New Hampshire Alliance for Immigrants and Refugees urge you to take action in support of this economically smart and humane bill!

Urge them to vote YES.  Call 866-996-5161.


Urge her to push the house vote to YES.  Call 202-225-0100.

OFA- Statement of OFA-NH Director Tim Arsenault Urging Congress to Pass Unemployment Insurance Benefits Extension

CONCROD – With federal funding for extended unemployment insurance benefits running out earlier this week, 800,000 Americans have already lost their benefits and nearly two million Americans are expected to lose them by the end of December. In response, Organizing for America-New Hampshire State Director Tim Arsenault released the following statement urging Members of Congress to pass an extension:

“Although the economy is on the road to recovery, the job market remains extremely tough for millions of Americans. For many of these individuals – who lost their job through no fault of their own –  unemployment insurance provides a lifeline during tough times. During the Bush Administration, Members of Congress put partisanship aside to extend these vital benefits for those Americans most in need. Unfortunately, since President Obama took office Republicans in the House and Senate have opposed, obstructed or delayed the extension of unemployment benefits and are doing so again. 

“OFA volunteers across New Hampshire are urgently calling on Members of Congress to stop playing political games and immediately extend this important lifeline to millions of Americans who depend on them.”

The Patriot Update - George Soros: Puppet Master of the Obama Regime

Dear Fellow Conservative,

Radical billionaire George Soros has become the single most sinister force in American political life by leading a group of influential and powerful Americans to form a party within the Democratic Party.

This "shadow party" is undermining the War on Terror, destabilizing our nation and implementing radical change in America. America is under attack from within, and it's up to us to stop them. That's why Glen Beck recently featured my book The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton and the Sixties Radicals Seized Control of the Democratic Party on his television show.

The Shadow Party gives the inside story of George Soros' secret role as the financier and architect of the organizations that make up the left wing of the Democratic Party. As Glenn Beck noted, The Shadow Party reveals how Soros used his billions to build a political attack machine that threatens our democracy by subverting its political, cultural, and financial institutions.

This book is a must-read for every concerned American. And just in time for the holiday season, a signed copy of The Shadow Party and an advance copy of our soon-to-be-released pamphlet can be yours for a tax-deductible contribution of $50 or more. Please follow this link right away to make your contribution.

As the Obama presidency lurches toward the left, it is very important to understand Soros' increasingly important role in dictating the tone and direction of the extreme left wing of the Democratic Party. That's why I'm in the process of finalizing a new pamphlet, "George Soros: Puppet Master of the Obama Regime". This pamphlet will show how Soros has used his billions to build a spider web of influence among the organizations of the left and how he is trying to mobilize them all to support Obama's plans to radically transform our country and to attack the concerned Americans who oppose this power grab.

I believe that "George Soros: Puppet Master of the Obama Regime" will have an influence comparable to that of another pamphlet the Freedom Center produced earlier this year-- "Obama's Rules for Revolution: The Alinksy Model." Our goal is to further the debate about the role of the 1960s left in Barack Obama's political development and his use of power that The Shadow Party has prompted by distributing over one million copies of the new pamphlet before December 31st. But to achieve this goal, the Freedom Center must raise $150,000 in the next 14 days, so I urgently need your help.

Will you follow this link right away to make the most generous contribution you can afford to the Freedom Center? Don't forget that we will rush you a signed copy of The Shadow Party and an advance copy of "George Soros: Puppet Master of the Obama Regime" with your contribution of $50 or more.

Americans must know the facts about Soros and the way he spends his billions on campaigns that seek to overturn our democracy. With President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and so many others dangling at the end of those puppet strings, we must act now to make the public aware of George Soros' hidden agenda. I hope I can count on you to help the Freedom Center initiate a national debate about the radical hidden agenda of the current administration -- how it is developed behind closed doors and how Soros money funnels its objectives into public policy initiatives. Please follow this link to give generously.

Thank you in advance for your support of the work at the Freedom Center.


David Horowitz
President & Founder

P.S. Will you help the Freedom Center expose the facts about George Soros and the "shadow party" he has created within the Democratic Party? With your contribution of $50 or more, we will rush you a signed copy of The Shadow Party and an advance copy of "George Soros: Puppet Master of the Obama Regime". Please follow this link right away to make your tax-deductible contribution to the Freedom Center. Thank you.
