Thank you for the welcome, Steve. I'm going to spread thr word at work; maybe we can get a few more people. The only problem is too many are complacent concerning their liberty unless they are directly threatened. Can't miss American Idol, you know.

I was unaware this group existed until I saw an ad endorsing Scott Brown on Fox this afternoon. I know many people would join if they knew of this organization. What can we do to get our message out?

Bob - Thanks for this info. I agree the Union members need to standup for America, even if their Union Bosses don't.

Union Brothers and Sisters:
Your Leadership Doesn’t Get It – You Deserve Better

In the latest to come out of D.C.’s backroom health care deals, President Obama yesterday cut a doozy of a deal with labor union bosses. The fed’s health care plan must be so bad that even union bosses had to go to D.C. to say they wanted out. So... to keep their support for a flawed plan they got an exemption to provisions in the deal that others did not. Small business owners, our families running America’s mom & pops, did not get this deal. Ask yourself: why did union bosses get special treatment? And when did our country’s unions get on the wrong track with moves like this that hurt their good members and put them in such a bad light?

Good hard-working, pro-free-market, pro-America union members should join in opposition to their union bosses’ sweetheart deal. Coming from a union background and living in a world with many union memberships among my family and friends, I know that average members will be embarrassed by their bosses’ deal, which basically only delays the heavy tax on their health care plans until 2018 and in the meantime unfairly leaves many fellow Americans in a much less “enviable” position.

Union members don’t want to stick it to non-union colleagues in the private and public sector. Their union leadership is not helping them in the long run, they’re certainly not helping the rest of America, and unfortunately some union bosses are making all union members look bad, selfish, and anti-business with this Big Government backroom deal.

I know that ordinary union members don’t want to hurt their fellow Americans, just as ordinary Nebraskans didn’t want to stick it to the rest of the country with a sweetheart deal on Medicaid subsidies. I urge union members to make their voices heard. Please, call your leadership – don’t put up with these special-interest politics – tell them to fight for all Americans who want common sense health care reform, not this flawed boondoggle.

Burris, Roland W. – (D – IL) Class III 387 RUSSELL SENATE OFFICE BUILDING WASHINGTON DC 20510 (202) 224-2854 Web Form: -- Continue to think Mark Kirk is slightly overrated. Even if it's a fairly bad cycle for Democrats, not sure it will be bad enough for them to start losing open-seat races in the President's home state.

• Illinois' 10th congressional district - open seat:
Five-term Republican Congressman Mark Kirk has announced he will opt out of reelection in the House and instead will pursue a campaign for the United States Senate. Although his move pleased Senate Republicans, it may be difficult for House Republicans to hold onto a seat in a Democratic-leaning district that covers suburban Chicago. Democrats who hope to take the seat include State Representative Julie Hamos, businessman Dan Seals (who Kirk defeated in 2006 and 2008), and attorney Elliot Richardson. Announced Republican candidates include State Representative Elizabeth Coulson, and attorney Bill Cadigan.

• Debbie Halvorson (D) of Illinois' 11th congressional district:
Freshman Democrat Debbie Halvorson represents the 11th district of Illinois, which voted for Obama in 2008 over McCain 53%-45%, a much smaller margin than other districts in his home state, and went for George W. Bush in 2004. Iraq and Afghanistan war veteran Adam Kinzinger will seek the seat in 2010, and is supported by the Republican establishment.

• Bill Froster (D) of Illinois' 14th congressional district:
Two-term Democrat Bill Froster represents a district that was once held by former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert. Even so, the district has Republican leanings. Hastert's son, attorney Ethan Hastert, is considering running.

Kieth - We have to want change not the same model car (progressives) crusining at different speeds (Fast - Dem or Slow - Repub). We need to find a venue to restore our nation. We are getting entertainers on board but the powers keep the door to freedom lock shut.

Rush Limbaugh Explains How Robert Mueller
Will Attempt To Financially Destroy President Trump

 Special Counsel Robert Mueller has crossed President Trump’s “red line” after issuing a subpoena for documents related to the Trump Organization’s business dealings with Russia.

New York Times reports:

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, has subpoenaed the Trump Organization to turn over documents, including some related to Russia, according to two people briefed on the matter. The order is the first known time that the special counsel demanded documents directly related to President Trump’s businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president. […] The Trump Organization has said that it never had real estate holdings in Russia, but witnesses recently interviewed by Mr. Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow. In 2015, a longtime business associate of Mr. Trump’s emailed Mr. Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen at his Trump Organization account claiming he had ties to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and said that building a Trump Tower in Moscow would help Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh theorized on his program Friday that one of Mueller’s true objectives is to financially destroy President Trump.

Partial transcript via Breitbart News:

And these requests, the subpoena for documents from the Trump Organization, I ask you again, what has that to do with the campaign and with collusion and with the Russians? They’ve already been looking into Trump business in Russia with the Miss, what is it, USA, whatever his pageant is.

Do you all remember during the early days of the campaign there was news that Trump, in a tax return something like 20 years ago, took a $900 million deduction that was granted and survived an audit by the IRS? Now, I forget the details. It had to do with losses that he had incurred in that year in building things. It was around 900 or $920 million deduction. I’ll never forget when it was reported because most people will never come close to ever having that in a lifetime, and to have a guy personally write that much off?

Anyway, I think Mueller wants that $920 million back. I think Mueller wants to prove that that was a faulty deduction. I think that they want to go back, they want to get Trump’s tax returns because they want to nullify that $900 million deduction, and then they want to collect 20 years of interest and penalties and wipe Trump out.

In the meantime, President Trump’s lawyers are in the process of negotiating with special counsel Robert Mueller to bring the Russia probe to an end, reports Rebecca Ballhaus and Peter Nicholas of the Wall Street Journal.

Mueller’s tentacles continue to reach further and further.

CNN reported that investigators are attempting to determine whether former Blackwater chief Erik Prince misled the  House Intelligence Committee about a meeting he had in Seychelles in January of 2017.

Prince is accused of using the meeting as an opportunity to establish a secret back channel with Russia.

Fox News’ Catherine Herridge spoke with one of President Trump’s personal lawyers about the new subpoena request by Special Counsel Mueller.

According to Herridge, Trump’s lawyer was unaware of the subpoena and said it may be a ‘wrap up’ subpoena or ‘clean up’ subpoena which may signal the end of the investigation.
