DISCLOSE ACT SB3295 - #1977 - Blatant Attack by Dems on First Amendment Rights - Seeks Cash of Liberals, Oppress Speech - Family Research Council

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), and President Barack Obama all paid homage to the ultra liberal "Netroots Nation Convention" in Las Vegas over the weekend, promising everything from completing the government takeover of health care to further redistribution of wealth--as long as those assembled pull out all stops to protect Democrat incumbents this election season.  A poll of the gathering of liberals found they believe the re-election of Harry Reid is their top priority, and to help both himself and their efforts, the current Senate Majority Leader plans on holding a cloture vote TUESDAY on the DISCLOSE Act--the Democrat incumbent protection legislation disguised as campaign finance reform.
How much of a farce is the DISCLOSE Act? The carve-outs in the bill expose the hypocrisy of its supporters, which is no surprise when you realize the legislation was written by legislators who have personal stakes in this election. In fact, the legislation allows for no expedited review, because the Democrats know what they are passing is unconstitutional, but do not want it thrown out by the courts until after the 2010 elections.
Contact your Senators today to vote NO on this assault on free speech, S. 3295, the DISCLOSE Act.
THIS WILL BE VOTED ON TODAY, TUESDAY, PLEASE CALL YOUR SENATORS, 202-224-3121.  I have called both Senators, they will not state a position, but confirmed the vote will be today.

DISCLOSE ACT SB 3295 - Legislative Alert - Take our Country Back PAC -  Harry Reid and Barack Obama are trying to ram the Disclosure Act through Congress tomorrow. The so-called "Disclosure Act" is a blatant attack on the First Amendment. Please call your U.S. Senators today at 202-224-3121 (Cloak Room Number) and ask them to oppose S. 3628, the DISCLOSURE Act

The DISCLOSURE Act, which passed the House last month, puts severe and unconstitutional limits on our ability to hold individual congressmen accountable in the weeks leading up to an election. You may recall that the DISCLOSURE Act passed the House only after a controversial carve-out was added to exempt the NRA from the bill's provisions. Unfortunately, the NRA -- which had originally opposed the bill because it was unconstitutional - caved in and withdrew its opposition after the carve-out was inserted into the bill.
If passed, the Disclosure Act will put undue burdens and paperwork requirements on political groups and organizations in an attempt to silence them.  The Obama administration is afraid of Tea Party Organizations and other groups who are exposing the damage their agenda is doing to this country.

Please Contact both Virginia Senators and demand that they vote to OPPOSE the Disclose Act (S.3268) on every vote, including cloture.
Senator Mark Warner can be contacted at 202-224-4024.
Senator Jim Webb can be contacted at 202-224-4024.

The Democrats know they don't have much time, so Senator Chuck Schumer introduced a revised version of the bill that will completely bypass committee and go directly to the floor. We must work quickly to stop this disastrous bill.  The so called "carve out" for the NRA is basically an exemption from the law. Well, you say what is so bad about that? The NRA is not the only group that gets an exemption. The others include Big Labor!
So what is this legislation? What does it do?  The Disclosure Act is cleverly named. It does the opposite of what it says. It forbids groups from mentioning legislation or voting records during the election season! Maybe they should have called it the NON-Disclosure Act!

The Disclose Act is designed to:
Silence grassroots activists and protect establishment politicians in Washington;
Silence every political organization you belong to; and
Silence individual patriots like you and me who want to hold the establishment's feet to the fire for their actions!
Please contact Senator Mark Warner at 202-224-4024 and Senator Jim Webb at 202-224-4024. Then donate to the Take Our Country Back PAC so we can continue to work to stop the destruction of American Freedom like this and help to preserve the American Dream.
