Letter to Obama to call ISIS activity genocide

rotator-10-14-Stop-Genocide.jpgLet’s make it clear to President Obama that Americans do care about fighting ISIS and want the United States to do everything it can to stop them and to protect Christians, Yezidis and others being targeted.

We all know that President Obama loves to work with the United Nations, so it is perfect timing to have him ask the U.N. Security Counsel to adopt a resolution calling this genocide.  Once that would occur, all sorts of support would be available to stop the genocide, help the victims and the International Criminal Court would try the perpetrators.  

Sign our letter to President Obama to call this genocide and recommend that the United Nations adopt a resolution doing the same.

Dear President Obama,

In Syria, ISIS recently crucified a dozen Christians, but not before torturing them (including a 12 year old boy) and publicly raping the women. ISIS has announced plans to executive another 180 Christians later this week.

In Iraq, ISIS rounded up all the Yezidis in the village of Sinjar, killed the men and older women, and then sold the women and children to fighters in Iraq and Syria as sex slaves.

A recent article in The New York Times said “Now ISIS is looking to eradicate Christians and other minorities altogether.”  They quote the President’s own Ambassador at large for religious freedom David Saperstein, “Everyone has seen the forced conversions, crucifixions and beheadings.  To see these communities, primarily Christians, but also the Yezidis and others, persecuted in large numbers is deeply alarming.”

This is genocide. It clearly fits the definition of genocide found in the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. 

I am writing to ask you to call this genocide and recommend that the United Nations adopt a resolution doing the same.

I want the United States to do everything it can to stop ISIS and to protect Christians, Yezidis and others being targeted.

Please, ask the U.N. Security Counsel to adopt a resolution calling this genocide.  Once that occurs, all sorts of support would be available to stop the genocide, help the victims and the International Criminal Court would try the perpetrators.  


TELL SPEAKER BOEHNER TO STOP TRYING TO SILENCE CONSERVATIVES

Speaker Boehner has attempted to punish members of Congress whose votes have not been in line with party leadership. 

He stripped Congressman Mark Meadows of his subcommittee chairmanship because Meadows voted against a procedural motion on trade legislation.

Fortunately, people spoke out against the attack on Congressman Meadows and the decision to strip him of the subcommittee chairmanship was reversed.  In the words of Congressman Meadows, "The voice of the people still matters. ... It matters to me. It matters to members of Congress and we can't forget that.”

It is time to put a stop to the bullying of conservatives by their own party, because if we don’t speak out loud and clear, it WILL happen again. 

Please add your name to our petition and tell Speaker Boehner that Members of Congress should be able to vote in the interest of their constituents and their conscience without the threat of retribution from House leadership.

signed War on jobs 2014-06-10 22:33:35 -0400

New EPA Regulations will kill jobs and hike consumer energy bills.


“Hardworking families across this country continue to face an uphill climb as long as President Obama is in the White House. With the announcement that he has put into place job-killing regulations on coal-fired plants, hundreds of thousands of Americans will lose their jobs.” Rick Santorum


I stand with Patriot Voices because:

  • These regulations from the EPA are unfair and unnecessary and will cost thousands of workers their jobs and millions more will face higher energy costs.
  • Obamacare is a heavy-enough burden for an economy coming out of the worst recession since the great depression.
  • With our shrinking economy, we cannot afford even more burdens and roadblocks on businesses that want to be hiring workers.
  • This radical proposal to stop “climate change” is part of the elite liberal agenda and is not supported by hardworking Americans across the country.

Enough is enough, President Obama. Stop the war on jobs and stop hurting American families.

National Petition for a Balanced Budget Amendment

Sponsored by Patriot Voices

To: All members of the 114th United States Congress

I, the undersigned, a lover of liberty, an American patriot, and a concerned citizen, do hereby implore you, our elected representatives, to immediately introduce, vote on, and pass a 28th amendment to the United States Constitution mandating a balanced budget.

A Balanced Budget Amendment would require by law that the federal government not spend more than it takes in and would ultimately cap federal spending at 18% of gross domestic product (GDP).

Because our country can't afford to continue down this unsustainable fiscal course any longer, I urge you to pass this Balanced Budget Amendment before completing the federal budget for the coming fiscal year.

According to my First Amendment right to petition, I expect full compliance with this request, and will hold you accountable and responsible for fulfilling it.

Finally, I do hereby pledge to stand with Rick Santorum, Patriot Voices, and conservative patriots nationwide in support of fiscal sanity, accountability, and a balanced budget.

Hereby signed,

The time is now, and has been for years

It is over 4 years since Obama first occupied the White House.  Can someone convince me why the Congress needs to investigate the IRS, instead of just plain shutting it down, while simultaneously impeaching BH Obama?  <and I don't mean a months to years-long (much less a month-long) "impeachment process".>  The Congress has had mind-numbing amounts of evidence for years.

Consider the following (compliments of Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com):

March 5, 2009 – The Obama administration shut out pro-life groups from attending a White House-sponsored health care summit. Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business, made the invitation list as did other pro-abortion groups.

May 5, 2009 – Details emerge about a terrorism dictionary the administration of President Barack Obama put together in March. The Domestic Extremism Lexicon calls pro-life advocates violent and claims they employ racist overtones in engaging in criminal actions.

August 6, 2009 – Obama criticized for asking for people to “snitch” on groups and people who oppose the pro-abortion health care bills in Congress.

These are just a light sampling of Obama’s tyrannical tactics, and they began early; and they have only escalated.  Now, really, who can be surprised at this “news” of the IRS assault on conservatives?  Does anyone actually believe that Obama’s IRS strong-arm would not follow his lead in lock-step?  Really??

Imagine the history book our children's children will read.  How will it explain the "paralysis" of our nation to end this tyranny?

What we are doing to help break the paralysis is revealed at: https://FundamentalError.com/.

Yes, we hear from some influential patriots “Congress will never impeach Obama.”  But, as you see at our above site, addressing this tyranny is much simpler than that.

Demand The Truth about Benghazi!

It’s been more than two years and we still don’t have answers about what happened in Benghazi, Libya when four brave Americans were killed on September 11, 2012. 

While the White House is doing its best to quietly and purposefully sweep this tragedy under the rug, we are Patriot Voices are refusing to back down.

We refuse to back down until former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton comes out of the dark and starts answering the important questions about who knew what and when.

Former Secretary of State Clinton asked "what difference, at this point, does it make?"  It makes a big difference.  The truth matters, and the victims' families as well as the American people deserve to know what happened.  Watch this video and help us demand that Hillary Clinton come clean on the following:

•         Who knew what and when?

•         Why were warnings ignored?

•         Was there a cover up?

•         Why were the talking points changed 12 times?

•         Why did her spokesperson delete critical facts regarding the attacks?

 


Likely 2013 POTUS scenario, based on rapidly evolving current events:

See if you agree.

>>> Obama is impeached and/or declared ineligible (our http://FundamentalError.com/ case comes thru on this).

 

 >>> Romney is declared ineligible (our http://FundamentalError.com/ case comes thru on this).

 

 >>> Biden is disqualified as a presidential candidate (our http://FundamentalError.com/ case comes thru on this); as well as recognized as totally complicit in Obama's fraud, by simple deduction.

 

 >>> A new presidential election is required (rather hastily) (our http://FundamentalError.com/ case comes thru on this).

 

*** Senator Rick Santorum is the very likely winner, based on:

 

His 2012 popularity as a presidential candidate, as he outperformed Romney by leaps and bounds (especially if you remove the voter fraud factor), as well as the other candidates; and also due somewhat to the predicament much more of the nation now finally realizes we are in.

 

He has been the only candidate to be the REAL, reliably faithful conservative, to openly and boldly warn of this current, unfolding web of national and international events, disasters and threats, and to offer all required domestic and international solutions (all of which have been fully vetted as very reasonable, effective and efficient.)

 

He has a great deal of integrity that naturally shines thru (read as: reliable, credible, super strong work ethic, etc.), not to mention he has been repeatedly described as brilliant by BOTH his peers, and critics, and has a proven track record of success in the Congress like no other today has.

 

He was also the only Republican presidential candidate to attract international attention by those hoping America would succeed (I dare venture to say.)

 

He is the only candidate Obama feared, and the liberal far left despise (which he admits he wears as a badge of honor.)

 

Much, if not all of the above traits were repeatedly revealed during his candidacy across the nation; and he has since continued to maintain a high profile across the nation. Etc., etc.

That is a fine question. Why, no doubt the “modern day” Jesus would say the same thing He said when He walked the earth – no more, no less. And, He said quite a bit. And some of those who listened to His Word intently, and admirably put His Word into practice, united to build our nation.

Senator - What providential timing in your asking me this question!

My American dream - End abortion in America.  Place the rightful presidential candidate (Rick Santorum) in the White House today (not 2016!)  Protect our children from all onslaughts perpetrated against them.  Restore our nation's greatness, protect our liberties (all of them.)

Now to see what I and other patriots are doing to make this shared dream a reality, go to http://FundamentalError.com/ for the amazing solution that we are presently working through the federal court (as I write this!!)   And, tomorrow look for an alert to go across America with this message as an invitation to join and support this blockbuster (like no other, in the history of the world) case.  What else I have done includes: voted for and promoted Senator Rick Santorum, Ted Cruz, Randy Weber ...

Thanking Senator Rick Santorum once more for all he has done, is doing and will do for our nation - Michael T. Burns, Texas

To: All members of the 114th United States Congress

I, the undersigned, a lover of liberty, an American patriot, and defender of the right to bear arms, do hereby implore you, our elected representatives, to protect our Second Amendment rights and stop efforts aimed at "universal background checks."

Recent incidents of heartbreaking gun violence have brought the issue of gun safety into the spotlight.  Putting further restrictions on law abiding citizen-gun owners is not the answer.

We have gun laws in place, we need to work hard to enforce existing laws, not create new laws that do nothing to deter criminals and madmen.

The Second Amendment was drafted to protect our First Amendment rights, and according to my First Amendment right to petition, I expect review of this request, and will hold you accountable for your response to it.

Finally, I do hereby pledge to stand with Patriot Voices and conservative patriots nationwide in support of the Second Amendment and against efforts to implement "universal background checks."

Stop Chuck Hagel's Nomination as Secretary of Defense

1,867 voices

Senator Chuck Hagel is the wrong choice for Secretary of Defense because his confirmation would send a dangerous signal to Iran and other radical Islamic elements which would make our country and our allies less secure.  Not only did Senator Hagel tip off the Iranians that he would not use strength to prevent them from obtaining nuclear weapons, he disrespects our strongest ally in the middle east, Israel. Time after time, Sen. Hagel has sought to distance the United States from Israel and refused to support efforts to end terrorist attacks on Israel.

Chuck Hagel’s anti-Israel, pro-Iran mindset makes him uniquely unqualified to serve as our Defense Secretary.

Add your voice to Patriot Voices' fight to stop Chuck Hagel’s nomination as Secretary of Defense using the short form below.

UPDATE: We’ve learned that Chuck Hagel’s confirmation hearing is set for January 31st. Please take three minutes to call or email your senators now and tell them to vote "no" on this nomination.  Find your senators at this link.  

UPDATE #2: The Senate Armed Services Committee announced that they are postponing the vote on Chuck Hagel's nomination to be Secretary of Defense. This is because of your calls, emails and overall opposition to Senator Hagel! Let’s keep the pressure on! Here are three easy ways to take action:

Take the 8th Annual Made in the USA Christmas Challenge!

We have long been talking about how supporting the American worker and manufacturing will grow the economy in a way that benefits everyone. Donald Trump won the presidency talking about these important issues!

As we enter the Christmas season, millions of hard-working American families in the manufacturing industry or in communities impacted by that industry are struggling to make ends meet.

Did you know that a large percentage of our Christmas gift dollars go overseas? For every $1 we spend in the USA on manufacturing, $1.81 will be added to the economy. That is a great deal! 

Sometimes it is simply difficult to find products made in the USA. The next best thing would be to buy local. Support the small businesses and workers in your own community.

This is how it works. After you sign the pledge, just take a look at your gift-giving budget and decide to spend as much as you can on things made in this country or sold by local businesses. It’s that simple!  

Also consider shopping on Saturday, November 30th to support local businesses on Small Business Saturday.

Help make this a Red White and Blue Christmas by putting the American worker first. Join us by taking the 8th Annual Made in the USA Christmas Challenge!

No Budget No Pay

landing-pg-NO-PAY.jpg

6,377 signatures

The “No Budget, No Pay Act” would require members of Congress to forgo pay for every day after October 1 that they don’t adopt a budget and pass all of its spending bills.  Once members approved a spending plan and appropriated the money, they would start receiving paychecks again but couldn’t collect any retroactive pay.  The premise is simple: don’t do your job and you don’t get paid.

Sounds logical enough. When you are in the private sector, if you don’t do your job, you don’t get paid or worse you get fired.  We should expect the same from our elected officials.

Remarkably, Congress hasn’t passed a budget since 2009. The United States faces its most serious financial crisis and Senate Democrats could not be bothered to write a budget because budgets force people to make choices.  This has to change.  

In the longer term, we need a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution so the federal government has to balance its budget like our states do.  And in the short term, we need a new law to start the process of fiscal reform today. The “No Budget, No Pay Act” is a good start.

Sign the petition below to support the “No Budget, No Pay Act.”  You can also obtain contact information for your Senator and Member of Congress.  Please call or email them and tell them to vote for the “No Budget, No Pay Act” (S. 1981 and H.R. 3643).  You can access a sample letter here that you can cut, paste, add your own personalization and then email to your Member of Congress and Senator.

Americans develop a budget within their household.  We should be able to rely on our lawmakers to do the same for our nation.  This is a core constitutional and job responsibility.
