ALAN KEYES — Recently, I read this headline here at WND: "Source: Senate GOP 'refuses to strategize' against Obama." It linked to a story about the approach being taken by the GOP's quisling leadership in the aftermath of Obama's unconstitutional executive orders on immigration, an open (and pretty plainly declared) attack on the U.S. Constitution...

CLIFF KINCAID — The grand jury in the Eric Garner case heard nine weeks of evidence before declining to indict the police officer. Many in the media didn't wait nine minutes before finding the officer guilty of a crime. This rush to judgment was evident across the political spectrum, in the liberal and conservative media...

LAURIE ROTH — Many of you may have read some of my articles and perhaps listened to one of my radio shows over the years. I have been a commentator and national radio talk show host since 2001 and have seen our nation go through a tidal wave of ups and downs, as you have.... (more)

THE HILL — House conservatives are griping that Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is putting the squeeze on them by rushing through a $1 trillion spending bill in Congress's last week in session. Appropriators are expected to roll out the legislation early next week, giving critics scant time to figure out what's inside before they cast their votes by the end of the week. The government would shut down on Dec. 12 without a new funding bill.... (more)

PHILIP KLEIN — On Dec. 24, 2009, the Democratic-controlled Senate passed President Obama's healthcare law with a filibuster-proof 60-vote majority, triggering a massive backlash that propelled Republicans to control of the House the following year. On the Senate side, going into this year's midterm elections, 25 senators who voted for Obamacare were already out or not going be part of the new Senate being sworn in next month.... (more)

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — Civil-rights investigations in Ferguson and Staten Island? No, what denizens of St. Louis and New York City ought to be worried about right now is . . . the crime wave overtaking Seattle. If you don't understand why, then you probably thought Obamacare was about covering the uninsured. Like its health-care "reform" campaign, the Obama Left's civil-rights crusade is about control -- central control of state law enforcement by Washington.... (more)

YOU CAN WATCH IT HAPPEN - 1st Freedom Force Congress


2014 December 8
from G. Edward Griffin

The First Congress of Freedom Force will be broadcast live next Saturday

On December 13, Freedom Force will convene its first Congress. This is an important milestone in the development of the world's first organization based on enumerated principles of freedom and with a Freedom Academy to teach those principles. Nothing like this has ever happened before in history, and ...

You are invited to witness this historic event, as it happens, streaming live over the Internet.

If you are not familiar with Freedom Force International and its unique mission, please put the rest of this message on hold until you check out the Freedom Force web site. Only then will you see what makes us optimistic about the future in spite of the gathering storm.

Go to:

If you already are familiar with Freedom Force, read on.

To be accomplished by the First Congress of Freedom Force International:

► Check credentials of attendees and confer Delegate status to those who qualify.

► Delegates will select a Speaker pro tem who will convene the First Congress.

Delegates will nominate and elect members of the Leadership Council.

► Leadership Council will appoint Officers.

► Leadership Council and Officers will establish standing committees.

► Overview: Set in motion a global movement based on The Creed of Freedom, perpetuated by The Freedom Academy, protected by a core of members called Guardians, and guided by a Leadership Council that springs from the membership, itself. Nothing like this has ever been done before.

Everyone is invited to observe, but Chartered Members (those who have pledged financial support) will have an opportunity to send comments or ask questions by email. If you would like to observe the Congress as it happens, be on the lookout for my next report in which I will provide a link to the streaming video. Chartered Members will receive a separate email with instructions for sending comments.

If you now are a Chartered Member or become one by December 13, 2014, you will be recorded in our roles as a Founding Member. Some nice perks come with that, such as preferred seating at events and a recognition pin, but the real reward is in knowing that you have played a role in getting Freedom Force off the launching pad. After December 13, there will be no new names added to the list. If we fail in our mission, that will make little difference but, if we are successful, future generations will remember you for what you did to defend their freedom.

Become a Chartered Member
If you are not now a member and wish to become Chartered, you will qualify as a Founder if enrolled no later than December 13. You also will be able to submit comments or questions to the Congress. Enroll here.
If you are not yet familiar with the mission of Freedom Force, learn about it here.

Certified Members upgrade to Chartered
If you now are a Certified Member (free membership) and wish to upgrade to Chartered,
you will qualify as a Founder if enrolled no later than December 13. You also will be able to submit comments or questions to the Congress. Upgrade here.  (For the ast few days, some browsers are reporting that this link is not secure. We don't know why but are working to solve the mystery. Meanwhile, be assured that the site is secure.)

One-time donation

If you are not interested in Chartered Membership, please make a one-time donation to help us cover the cost of streaming video, establishing the Freedom Academy, and building a network of local chapters.
Even if you are a Chartered Member and feel inclined to help us further, a small donation at this time certainly would be appreciated. Thank you. Donate here.

May the Force of Freedom be with you.
