Call Senator Portmannd ask him to Co-Sponsor the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation ACT

March 28, 2016
Dear Sue, 

This is the 2nd of 3 emails that I am sending out this week.
It's Time to ACT!
It's time for Senator Portman 
to show us what side he's on. 
It's time for Senator Portman to 
Co-Sponsor the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation ACT of 2017
Please watch Brigitte explain the issue.
Now after watching Brigitte clearly explain the problem. Are you ready to do your part to fix this?  Pick up the phone and contact Senator Portman's office in DC and one of the Ohio offices and politely make it perfectly clear to everyone and anyone, that you want Senator Portman to CO-SPONSOR Senator Ted Cruz's legislation to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. You don't just want his support if it goes to the floor for a vote. You want his name on the Bill, S. 68.
Please remember that when viewing Trevor Loudon's film, "The Enemies Within", Trevor refers to the legislation as SB 2230 in the Senate and HR 3892 in the House. 
Those are the numbers associated with the OLD legislation. Keep in mind, Trevor's video was made early in 2016. 
The NEW BILL #s are S 68 and HR 77. Here are the links to them:
 S.68-The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2017
( 4 co-sponsors in the Senate so far, 
Senators Hatch, Inhofe, Roberts and Johnson)
H.R.377-The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2017
( 40 co-sponsors in the House so far, including 
Ohio Congressmen Dave Joyce and Brad Wenstrup). 
Keep reading this email before you call.
This next video is from our Director of Government Relations, Lisa Piraneo,  who gives advice on how to handle phone calls to your legislators.
Lisa is fantastic, however, there is one small thing I disagree with her on in this specific instance. We want calls made to all of Senator Portman's offices throughout Ohio, as well as in DC, because we want all of the staffers working in those offices to be talking about this issue and to be concerned.  Please explain to the staffer that you are not only a constituent of their boss' but also a member of ACT for America. 
Take comfort in the fact that all ACT chapters in Ohio are working on this issue. At the very least, everyone in Ohio should be calling the DC office. 
Please watch the video.

3 Things to Remember
Point 1: Please call Senator Portman, and tell him to CO-SPONSOR and support the passage of The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act. ( S. 68)

Point 2: As you know, the Muslim Brotherhood is the oldest Islamic terrorist organization in the world, and has served as the mothership for radical jihadists for almost a century.

Point 3: Now that the two bills affirming that the Muslim Brotherhood be designated as a foreign terrorist entity have been reintroduced in the 115th Congress, we must once again take advantage of our influence on Capitol Hill and let our elected officials know how strongly we feel about the necessity of this designation.

Finally, keep track of whom you talk with, which office, the date and the time. Ask for a call back. If you don't receive that call back within a week, or a mutually agreed upon time frame, then call back and keep asking for the person that you talked with originally. Keep a log and we can discuss this at our next meeting in a few weeks. 
The game that is played is that the staffer will say that " the Senator will consider supporting the Bill if it it gets to the floor for a vote." 
That's NOT good enough, we want his NAME on the the Bill as a C0-SPONSOR. Bills don't get to the floor unless leadership wants them to get there or unless there are enough co-sponsors that will force leadership to do so.
Remember, Senator Portman works for us!... Failure to ACT on his part, or ours, endangers all of our children and grandchildren!
Information about our next meeting will be announced on Thursday.
Thank you, 
Dan & Bev
