ALG - Confederate flag fight conceals Democrat history of hate!

6

July 10, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the House of Representatives to get back to work on the appropriations bills:

 

"If the appropriations process is going to be held up over an amendment defunding the placement of Democrat-created Confederate flags at Confederate grave sites at national cemeteries, and we're not going to get any work done until this business is settled, then it should all be tied to a single vote including renaming the Richard Russell Senate Office Building, who was a pro-segregationist, removing every hammer and sickle symbol — a symbol which tens of millions have died under — from every gravestone in Chicago's Haymarket National Cemetery, renaming the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, named after the President who resegregated the entire government including the military and hosted a showing of 'The Birth of a Nation' at the White House and praised it, renaming all federal courthouses and corrections facilities in West Virginia named after the late Senator Robert Byrd, a former leader of the KKK and Democrats in the Senate, and renaming the Lyndon Baines Johnson Memorial Grove on the Potomac, due to LBJ's fondness for using the N-word.

 

"It is ridiculous for Congress to relinquish the power of the purse that the appropriations process enables, due to this symbolic idiocy of the left, so let's just get rid of all of it. If purging the cruel, racist history of the Democrat Party is their goal, let's just help Democrats expunge their shame for all time — and get back to the urgent business of Congress."

ALG's Daily Grind - How Democrats lost the economy 

6

Oct. 10, 2014

Permission to republish original opeds granted.

How Democrats lost the economy
The 2008 collapse swept Democrats into power, yet now, in poll after poll, Republicans are more trusted on the economy than Democrats. How could this happen? 

No place for workplace intimidation
Intimidation is an ugly word. Yet that is exactly what the United Auto Workers union is doing in General Motors plants in right to work states Kansas and Tennessee. 

The Hill: Dems call for Obama to ban flights from Ebola countries
Lawmakers: "[The WHO] has no duty to protect the lives and well-being of Americans, as you do. Furthermore, it has utterly failed to stem the epidemic through its own action. The responsibility for this decision is yours, not theirs."

Franklin Center - Free speech won a major victory  

 

Dear Friend,

More than a year ago, a company founded by Terry McAuliffe – the Clintons’ former chief fundraiser and now the governor of Virginia – slapped the Franklin Center with an $85 million libel lawsuit.

I wanted you to be among the first to know – yesterday, a federal judge in Mississippi threw out the entire lawsuit.

Our investigation into GreenTech Automotive and into McAuliffe’s role with the company, which he used to launch his candidacy for governor, started when one of our reporters found that, while the company didn’t seem to be producing many cars, it was soliciting investments through a controversial federal program called EB-5. The EB-5 program offers any foreign national who invests $500,000 in a U.S. company a green card. The program has been rife with problems – and appeared to be one of GreenTech’s main funding sources.

The lawsuit filed against us – one of the largest libel suits in American history – was nothing less than an attempt to shut us down for telling the truth. But we decided to fight back, to defend ourselves, and most importantly, to keep digging. Altogether we produced more than 90 stories examining McAuliffe’s connections to GreenTech from every possible angle.

This is all too often how the progressive establishment operates. Rather than engaging their opponents in a battle of ideas, seeking to win on merit, they use the legal system and other bullying tactics to shut their opponents down. This time, however, we were able to to fight back on behalf of all of those whom the system has tried to silence.

We’re sure there will be many more battles like this to come. Even as I write, one of our reporters is fighting Gov. McAuliffe’s office for answers on the immigration crisis – going so far as to camp out on the floor, just outside his office, waiting to confront him and demand the information that taxpaying citizens are clamoring for and deserve. And GreenTech may even appeal the court’s order dismissing its baseless lawsuit. Will you considering supporting us in the hard, ongoing work of investigative journalism?

Thank you so much for your loyal support and readership. Because of you, the cause of free speech won a major victory against the powerful, moneyed progressive establishment. Please know that you have the gratitude of the entire Franklin Center staff.
Best regards,

Jason Stverak
President
Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity
