Brown For US Senate - AS JOE BIDEN COMES TO NEW HAMPSHIRE, BROWN CAMPAIGN RELEASES WEB VIDEO: "NO STRATEGY"


AS JOE BIDEN COMES TO NEW HAMPSHIRE, BROWN CAMPAIGN RELEASES WEB VIDEO: "NO STRATEGY"
 

MANCHESTER - On the same day that Vice President Joe Biden campaigns for Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in Portsmouth, the Brown campaign released a new web video that highlights the incoherent foreign policy of the Obama Administration.
 
The 30-second web video opens with a scene from the 2012 presidential campaign of Biden praising President Obama’s “strength and steadiness” on foreign policy.  Biden goes on to say that the Presidenthas a “clear vision for America’s place in the world.”  
 
Those comments are then juxtaposed with President Obama's admission last week that “we don’t have a strategy yet” for containing ISIS.
 
Jeanne Shaheen, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, continues to be a rubberstamp for the Administration's weak and indecisive foreign policy, voting with President Obama 99 percent of the time.  Yesterday, the Union Leader editorialized that Shaheen showed weak leadership on this issue, noting that she has failed to articulate a plan for "dealing with the thousands of terrorists already on the ground in Iraq and Syria."
 
Today, while the Vice President campaigns with Senator Shaheen, Scott Brown will host a foreign policy town hall in Hudson, marking the sixth town hall of the "New Hampshire Speaks" series to discuss the ongoing threats facing our nation, with a focus on stopping ISIS.
 
Last Friday Brown called on Congress to pass a bill that would immediately strip any American who fights alongside ISIS of their passport and citizenship.


TRANSCRIPT FOR "NO STRATEGY":

VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN: President Obama has made those hard calls with strength and steadiness.
 
And the reason he’s been able to is because he had clear goals and clear strategy how to achieve those goals
 
He had a clear vision and has a clear vision for America’s place in the world
 

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We don’t have a strategy yet.
 
VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN: I am very optimistic about Iraq. I think it is going to be one of the great achievements of this administration.
 
PRESIDENT OBAMA: We don’t, we don’t have a strategy.

Brown For US Senate - BROWN RELEASES WEB VIDEO ON ISIS


 BROWN RELEASES WEB VIDEO ON ISIS, CALLS ON CONGRESS TO PASS LEGISLATION TO PROTECT U.S. FROM ISIS-AMERICAN FIGHTERS

MANCHESTER - As United States intelligence reports indicate that as many 300 Americans are fighting alongside ISIS in Iraq and Syria, Scott Brown today called on Congress to immediately pass legislation that would strip homegrown terrorists of their American citizenship. The campaign also released a new web video on the growing threat of ISIS, and the need to stop them.
 

In 2010, Brown introduced the bipartisan Terrorist Expatriation Act, which would revoke the citizenship of those “providing material support or resources to a Foreign Terrorist Organization” or “actively engaging” in “hostilities against the United States or its allies.”  In 2011, he introduced another similar piece of legislation called the Enemy Expatriation Act.
 
“One of the greatest threats facing the homeland today is the mayhem that will happen when hundreds of American ISIS fighters return to the United States to spread their terror here. Their goal is to march down Pennsylvania Avenue and plant a flag at the White House, and mass killing is their means for achieving that goal. That's why Congress needs to pass legislation that would strip the citizenship of any American who joins a foreign terrorist organization. We need to keep our country safe by stopping these American ISIS fighters from re-entering the country."

 
The new web video, titled “
Reestablish America,” features highlights of Brown’s recent foreign policy-focused town hall with Arizona Senator John McCain. In the video, Brown, who recently retired as a colonel after 35 years in the Army National Guard,  criticizes the Obama Administration’s “incoherent” foreign policy, saying “our friends don’t trust us and our foes don’t fear us.”

TRANSCRIPT - "Reestablish America":

Scott Brown: Right now we have a situation with ISIS
 
ISIS makes al-Qaeda look like Boy Scouts
 
What is the goal of ISIS
 
It’s to actually get their own country
 
Get the resources as they are doing
 
And export terrorism around the region and the world
 
You look at what’s happening, as Kelly referenced in the Ukraine with Russia
 
You see what’s happening in Israel
 
Being attacked and harassed daily by Hamas
 
There are so many issues on the table right now that are affecting our foreign policy
 
We have one of the most incoherent foreign policies right now
 
And our allies don’t trust us
 
And our foes don’t fear or respect us
 
We’re in trouble and we have a real problem
 
The best answer is to take back the Senate, reestablish that trust, get our fiscal house in order and reestablish the trust with our allies

Brown For US Senate - BROWN HOSTS LIVE SCREENING OF "LIVE FREE OR DIE - OBAMACARE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE"

MANCHESTER - Today, Scott Brown held the second live screening of the documentary “Live Free Or Die - Obamacare in New Hampshire.” The documentary highlights actual stories behind the disastrous effects of Obamacare.
 
“Obamacare is not working for New Hampshire and it is hurting our families and businesses," said Brown.  "This documentary captures many of the negative impacts Obamacare has posed on the Granite State, including canceled plans and uncertainty for job creators.  I support the full repeal of this law before it does more damage to our families and economy." 
 
Following the screening, Brown held a question and answer session to learn more about people’s experiences with Obamacare. Voters expressed their frustrations with higher premiums, limited plan options and further driving distances to get to a hospital in the narrow network.
 
“We were promised by President Obama and Senator Shaheen that we could keep our health care plans if we liked them, evidently that was a lie,” said Mark Lane, a small business owner that was featured in the documentary. “There needs to be more competition that allows for us to choose plans that are affordable and aren't top down, one size fits all.”

Brown For US Senate - SCOTT BROWN RELEASES NEW WEB VIDEO: "MOMENTUM"


SCOTT BROWN RELEASES NEW WEB VIDEO: "MOMENTUM"
Web Video Captures State of the Race As Brown Surges

MANCHESTER - On the heels of today's New Hampshire Union Leader and Nashua Telegraph primary endorsements, the Scott Brown campaign released a new web video, titled “Momentum,” that captures the increased attention around the surging Brown campaign as he closes the gap on Jeanne Shaheen.

Last week's Granite State poll from the University of New Hampshire/WMUR shows the race as a virtual tie, with Brown earning 44% of the vote and Shaheen holding 46% of the vote.  
 
Brown is working tirelessly to visit every corner of the Granite State and hosting town hall meetings as part of the "NH Speaks" series to meet voters and spread his message for a stronger America, both at home and abroad. 
 
As shown in the ad, he has earned a number of momentum-building endorsements from Gov. Mitt Romney, Sen. Kelly Ayotte, Sen. John McCain, and a host of local elected officials and grassroots supporters throughout New Hampshire.
 
In their respective endorsements, the New Hampshire Union Leader & Sunday News said that Brown "will make a solid, smart, and independent voice for New Hampshire in the U.S. Senate," and the Nashua Telegraph wrote that "Scott Brown most closely adheres to those fundamental principles that shape the Granite State’s 21st-century identity."

NHDP - NEW WEB VIDEO: John McCain Thinks Brown is A Bold Leader…for Massachusetts

NHDP: GOPers Endorsing GOPers Not Surprising, McCain Endorsement Tries To Prop Up Brown in GOP Primary

 
Manchester, NH— As Scott Brown welcomes another out-of-state Republican to New Hampshire, New Hampshire Democrats are reminding people of Senator John McCain’s infamous “straight talk” touted Brown’s Massachusetts credentials just 24 months ago. McCain’s words are a perfect reminder of whose priorities Scott Brown really shares, and they’re most definitely not New Hampshire’s.
 
“John McCain’s visit does provide a great reminder of whose priorities Brown really shares, and they’re most definitely not New Hampshire’s,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Julie McClain. “Scott Brown is desperate to get back to the U.S. Senate, voting to protect the Big Oil and Wall Street special interests that fund his campaign.  As Massachusetts Senator, Brown received more donations from Wall Street than anyone running for Congress, because he was such a loyal vote for their special interests.”
 
McCain’s “straight talk” persona provides a stark contrast with Brown who infamously hid in the bathroom recently to avoid taking questions from reporters about women's health care. 
 
“Brown is no straight talker, and the more New Hampshire voters see of him, the more they don’t like him. Standing next to John McCain won’t change that,” McClain added.
 
McCain’s visit also seems to present a pattern for New Hampshire voters when it comes to Brown’s GOP endorsements, as Senator Kelly Ayotte was also quite fond of Brown’s commitment to the Commonwealth. And we all know how Scott Brown feels about his home state.
