Utah Red Alert: Update – Pro-LGBT Bill on Fast Track

0 No Comments

White background - longHB 322 – Religious Liberty and Nondiscrimination Protection – L Christensen.

Please support this bill as opposed to SB 296 – Antidiscrimination and Religious Liberty Amendments – Urquhart

HB 322 protects individual religious liberty, SB 296 does NOT!

SB 296 is  mis-named.  It is NOT a religious liberty bill because it does not protect people of faith, only institutions and it leaves some huge gaps in protections for doctors, therapists and businesses in general such as Hobby Lobby and Chick Fila that have religiously held beliefs among its ownership, for example.  It is fast-tracked for a vote TODAY, Friday, March 6, 2015 at 3 PM TIME CERTAIN.

ACTION
Please contact ALL Senators immediately. Ask them to VOTE NO on SB 296: Antidiscrimination and Religous Liberty Amendments (Urquhart-Adams).

Click here to contact your Senator.

Talking Points
This bill has several flaws:

1. We need more time to review and inform voters and others who will be affected negatively by this legislation.

For a bill that demands “fairness,” what kind of fairness is there in a thirty-five page bill that dramatically changes the definition of sex to “gender identity” – the first time ever in Utah history – and that has been given less than 24 hours to to review?

In less than 24 hours, we have not had time to bring in expert witnesses from Johns Hopkins University, Harvard and Los Angeles – all who were willing to be there to testify.

We have barely had time to get the information to those reading this blog post in time to respond for the scheduled 8 AM hearing.

This is not what we expect from our Utah legislators. This is what happens only in Washington DC, right? Wrong. It’s happening now, right here in UTAH!

2. This bill protects institutions, associations and affiliates, but it leaves you and me – the individual religious adherent vulnerable and “under the bus.”

This is unacceptable. Another bill in the House, HB 322, sponsored by Representative LaVar Christensen and by your colleague Senator Al Jackson in the Senate, has the proper balance and DOES protect individuals. We cannot pass SB 296 without removing this flaw, but the sponsors have told us it is NOT AMENDABLE!

The easier and more logical solution is to support HB 322 – Religious Liberty and Nondiscrimination Protections when it comes to the Senate.

3.Lines 105-109, page 4: SB 296 uses the DSM-5 definition of “gender identity.” This is the very organization that is trying to shut down therapists and counselors and doctors around the country who desire to help their clients based on their religious beliefs, and we should trust that source to protect our First Amendment liberties?

Even at BYU, the APA accredits the psychology department. The chairman told me that they cannot teach the students any form of therapy that would involve religious teachings if the program is to stay accredited.

In California, it is now against the law for parents to take their minor children who are confused about their sex or struggling with homosexuality to a counselor for help. These therapists are now in the Courts fighting for their First Amendment rights. I serve on their national task force and am following this disturbing trend closely.

Where is the fairness or protection to them in this bill?

In addition, putting this DSM definition into this bill removes not only fairness from the medical field, it ignores the integrity of medical science and ignores the conflict that exists between medical doctors and the DSM.

Solid medical science has proven DNA, which defines whether a person is a male or a female. While surgery can alter physical body parts, it cannot alter DNA. A person is born either male or female.

Yet Utah legislators are about to consider a proposal that undermines the integrity of medical science without hearing from respected doctors who disagree with that definition and who have longitudinal studies they have not been given time to present.

Putting this language into Utah law will leave the therapist or doctor on staff at a hospital unprotected and at risk of discrimination should they are forced to provide services they do not believe in religiously or ethically, as is already happening in California under similar laws.

4. Lines 681-685, P. 23: This bill appears to require employers to provide bathrooms, locker rooms and shower facilities specifically for the transgendered. Yet the bill has no fiscal note attached. We have no idea what the cost to taxpayers or employers will be, let alone how companies may have to increase their prices to the consumer to accommodate yet another building regulation. There has been no time to get this information to businesses that may be adversely affected.

The REAL Story Behind Why Utah Would Support an LGBT Bill and What Happened in the Senate Hearing

(Hint: Stop Funding Liberal Corporations and Start Buying Products and Services from Companies that share our values!)

Read on:

Our friend, Brian Camenker of www.massresistance.com, from Massachusetts listened to the entire SB 296 Senate hearing online.  He asked me if the sponsors were Democrats.  I said, “No – they are REPUBLICANS!”  He was stunned because the sponsors were giving a completely liberal message and brought in very liberal experts to testify – just as the Democrats of Massachusetts do!

Those of us who oppose this legislation waited our turn to speak patiently.  The committee chair, Curt Bramble, allowed a 60-minute filibuster for proponents to speak.  That left us only one minute and with such short notice – NO experts available to testify.

Expert witnesses from the pro-LGBT side were lined up representing pro-gay corporations eBay and Adobe both touting how important this bill is for their companies and that in order for them to stay in Utah this was a necessary step.  The Adobe representative shared that before it came to Utah, its leadership told Utah marketers that this issue would need to be resolved.

Apparently Governor Herbert, who has spent an inordinate amount of time in Silicon Valley California to market Utah as the “next Silicon Valley” to companies who find California an unfriendly place economically for business is luring them to Utah and has assured them that Utah would become an LGBT-friendly state.

Another witness from Illinois testified for a long time and has apparently been very involved in crafting Utah’s bill and promoted it as “the national model” they are going to take state by state.

When I saw the Adobe building going up at the “Point of the Mountain” in Utah County, I predicted that it would change the face of the conservative cultural environment.  We are now seeing this happen.  Pay attention, Utahns.

This is all about money and profit.  As Christians we are told that where our treasure is, there shall our heart be also.  Do we so easily sell our values for money?  Apparently so in Utah.

That is why American Leadership Fund is joining with companies that stand strong on principle and religious values and that show great American Leadership.  We urge you to support these products and services and to help us develop a coalition of consumers that will keep our country under God.

Why the New “Gender Identity” Bill Must Be Stopped

1 1 Comment

As you know, the Utah Legislature is now nearing the end of the session – one week to go.

A brand new GENDER IDENTITY bill came out Wednesday, March 4, 2015 that redefines SEX and does NOT protect individual religious liberty – SB 296 (Urquhart-Adams) VOTE NO!

This bill is fast-tracked for a hearing as the first item on the agenda at 8 AM Thursday, March 5, 2015.

Who’s Who in the Legislature: Utah’s Constitutional Republic Election System

0 No Comments

American Leadership FundI’ve written several articles addressing the attack on Utah’s Constitutional Republic election system – called the “caucus convention.”

In 2014 the Utah Legislature voted to intervene in the affairs of a private corporation specifically to dictate to it how it will elect its corporate members and who they can be – similar to a corporate board.  Except, what the legislature said was that Macy’s no longer has the exclusive right to appoint or elect its leadership, its CEO and board and voting shareholders.  Instead Gimble’s now has the right to take over Macy’s and petition to manipulate a hostile takeover of Macy’s.

Put another way, should a state legislature have the right to intervene in the business affairs of another private corporation – The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and tell it – by law – how it can appoint or elect its Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and who will be the next President of that church?

Outrageous you say?

Well, that is what the Count My Vote campaign is asking and that is what Senator Curt Bramble and others who are catering to the elite in Utah have done.

Corporate law prohibits such interference from competition in this manner.  (Unless you are General Motors and President Obama.  You may recall how the president stripped franchise owners of their own private contracts.  In Utah those car dealership owners stood at a press conference and, some very tearfully having lost their entire life’s investment in one letter, rightfully described it as communism.)

This matter of a political party’s right to a caucus convention was also challenged in Idaho and was found to be unconstitutional under the First Amendment protection to freely assemble.

Perhaps some of Utah’s legislators did not realize what they were doing at the time, but at this juncture they should be aware of the troubling circumstances they have complicated further.

In fact, it could be said that they acted in contempt of the very party that elected them.  And they continue to do so in this session.

Senator Curt Bramble is at the center of this conflict.  He was the sponsor of SB 54, promoted as the “fix.” He promised that it was “severable,” meaning a portion of the bill could be separated from the rest and dealt with.  However, members of the State Central Committee knew otherwise.  Read former legislator Chris Herrod’s expose here.

Now Senator Bramble tells the Republican Party it’s not severable.  In any other circumstance, this would either be incompetence or obfuscation.  In either case, Senator Bramble and those that followed him in support of SB 54 must be held accountable.

The elite of Utah are behind this attempt to destroy the Republican Party and to infringe on the rights of a private corporation so that they can not only elect their wealthy and famous friends, but also limit it to those that can afford the costly primaries that the media buyers otherwise miss out on with a caucus – convention.

The Republican Party has rightfully filed a lawsuit to defend its first amendment rights.  The Constitution Party has joined the lawsuit with identical concerns.  They should know.  Their party carries the namesake of the very law that is being torn to shreds by Utah Republicans the people elected to the state legislature.

They are also being lied to by local media, especially, but not limited to, Doug Wright.  He also should be held accountable.

Every business owner should be shuddering at the precedent the Utah legislature has created should SB 54 stand.  It means that independents (primarily progressives and Democrats that find it advantageous to run as “independent” or “non-partisan” so they can be elected in a predominantly Republican state) can enter a Republican primary and win it.

The Democrat Party should also be shaking in its boots.  In areas such as Salt Lake City, it would not take much for Republicans to run and take over precincts that the democrats hold by simply usurping the Democrat Party imprimatur.   It removes the same First Amendment rights from the Democrat Party as it does the Constitution, the Libertarian or the Republican Party.

The fundamental questions are:  does a private organization have a right to self-determination and definition?

Does a political party have the inherent and God-given right to declare its beliefs and who will represent them?

The answer is yes.

I am a member of the Utah Republican State Central Committee.  Senator Bramble and others who followed his lead were led down a dangerous path of brambles.  The following Republicans from the 2014 legislative session, knowingly – or otherwise deceived – have done serious harm to the Republican Party and to each of us who have been duly elected to represent its best interests.  We have spent countless hours and sacrifice from our families and work raising funds and defending the interests of the grassroots against an small elite group of people who wish to manipulate with their money or fame:

In the 2015 session, the following Republicans were true to the oath they swore to support and defend the U.S. Constitution and the Constitution of Utah.  Most of them became aware of the constitutional matter which had not been presented to them in 2014 and they voted for a bill that would have helped the Republican Party, SB 43 and they deserve our thanks.  This is actually representative of a core group of Utah Senators that primarily vote with a constitutional compass.

Here are some talking points in favor of the caucus system and why so many of the grassroots that understand its benefits are concerned about:

Many have asked about the specific objections the Party has to SB 54 (the Utah Legislature/Count My Vote compromise). Please see eight major objections below – (for the sake of brevity, preserving our constitutional rights is a given):

1)     The SB 54 compromise allows candidates who are not Republicans to run on the ballot as Republicans.

2)     It allows a candidate to be on the Republican primary ballot without having to get one Republican signature.

3)     It allows someone to win a Republican primary with as little as 10 percent of the vote, because there is no majority vote requirement.

4)     It forces the Utah Republican Party to have all 29 county conventions in a two week period

5)     It does not allow the Republican Party to ensure that candidates running on the Republican primary ballot even acknowledge that they support the Republican Party’s platform.

6)     Count My Vote has never been about increasing voter participation. It has always been about finding another and easier way to gain access to the Republican Party brand, and they are using the appeal of increasing voter participation as the rallying cry to do it.

7)     We have one state convention in 2015 to make all the required changes to comply with the aggressive 2016 timeline.

8)     If we can’t comply with the SB 54 requirements in time, Republicans may not be on the ballot in 2016.

What’s Wrong with a Balanced Budget Amendment

1 1 Comment

URGENT ACTION – HJR 7 – Call for Balanced Budget Amendment – Powell – Bramble

VOTE NO!

This proposal is the wrong medicine for the wrong disease.

As frustrated and concerned as we are about the overreach of the federal government, we must clearly understand the intent of the founders and what the Constitution says.

A balanced budget amendment cannot be written in such a way that would not give Congress more power to INCREASE taxation, especially in time of emergency or war.

It is difficult to comprehend how Congress would abide by a balanced budget requirement when it has already blatantly ignored its own existing rule of law – the current U.S. Constitution. That document already limits Congress to few enumerated powers. If they can’t read that, which IS the model for a balanced budget in the first place, why would they read a “balanced budget” add-on?

The problem we face is that the Constitution’s original intent has been thwarted and weakened by key constitutional amendments – including the 12th, 16th and 17th Amendments. THESE are the sources of some of the most critical problems we now encounter today.   (This measure is also connected to the national movement to call a constitutional convention.)

It would be far more prudent to repeal those amendments in a normal Congressional amendment process than to risk placing a BBA in the Constitution that could give free license to increase taxes (even the proposed ceilings are far too high).

We must work together to support the real solutions – to retire those elected officials that vote for increased spending and that do not have the discipline to balance the budget.

When members of Congress comment in the news, they should have a mantra from which they never depart: The U.S. debt is now over $19 trillion. It is immoral to vote for this measure and to put our children into further debt for our own selfish wants and needs today.

This BBA proposal is on today’s agenda in Utah Senate Business and labor Committee TODAY!

IMMEDIATE ACTION!

Contact all Utah State Senators ASAP.

Utah’s Redistribution of Wealth is Unhealthy

0 No Comments

I received an email from a Utah conservative who wrote that he had been “in and around the legislature for a few years now” and that he’s a “strong conservative” who now works for “a very reputable online political marketing company in SLC” that works with “many high profile Republican campaigns across the country.”

He then criticized me for my position opposing Healthy Utah, Governor Gary Herbert’s plan for Medicaid Expansion.  I offered these three articles as talking points, and he objected saying that these had been written between October and December 2014, but the bill was released February 5, 2015.

Healthy Utah Obamacare Expansion – Worse Than Expected

Governor Herbert’s ObamaCare Expansion Won’t Work

Will Governor Herbert Engage in ObamaCare Debate Or Stick With Name Calling?

He wants me to post the bill itself, so here it is.  I asked for his specific criticisms and got no reply.

Kudos to Utah’s True Republicans

I’d like to express my deep appreciation to stalwarts in the Utah Senate who understand the rule of law and the Constitution’s limited powers and who see through the facade of this waiver and who voted against its passage on the Senate floor.

They are:  Allen Christensen, Margaret Dayton, Deidre Henderson,  Al Jackson, Mark Madsen, Howard Stephenson, Steve Urquhart, and Evan Vickers.  

The bill is now in the House Rules Committee.  Please contact those members and ask them to HOLD it in rules.  Also contact your House reps and let them know you OPPOSE this legislation.

As wonderful as it may seem now, when has government ever established a “pilot” program that did not become a permanent one?  When so many become entitled and recipients of a welfare program, what then happens politically to elected officials that attempt to sunset or phase out such welfare programs?

History shows that pilot programs are not easily repealed, defunded, phased out or sunsetted because that becomes a political hot potato. Thus the United States, and in this case Utah, participates in the perpetuation of redistribution schemes that join the rest of the unsustainable programs public officials and bureaucrats are compelled to promote for re-election.

We have become a nation – and Utah is among the states in that nation – that elects the candidate that offers the most free stuff.  This is exactly what the Soviet Union became.

A Model Solution

In my testimony at the hearing I offered an alternative, private sector solution:  Drs John and Alieta Eck of the Zaraphath Health Care Center in Somerset, New Jersey.  Their program runs an annual budget of around $50,000 and costs around $13 a visit.  Meds are free.  Volunteer doctors make it happen.  They have even come together to negotiate urgent surgeries to aid the indigent.

Their congregation contributes to the clinic and the members use a “health care sharing ministries” model of covering medical costs.  It’s not insurance.  It’s better.  It’s Obamacare exempt, and it’s much less expensive.  You won’t be paying for abortions or any other procedures that will violate your religious beliefs.

Get ObamaCare-Exempt Cost Sharing Medical Plan NOW
We urge everyone to go to this website and to get on board with us at www.MedicalCostShare.com/OptOutNow

Do it NOW.  Help yourself with less expense that preserves your religious beliefs, help American Leadership Fund, and help defeat Obamacare and keep Utah and the other states from promoting and helping the ACA to succeed.

Remember, there are three legs to the Obamacare stool in order for it to succeed:

1. The state exchange (DONE – in Utah)
2. Government-run HMO’s, called “ACO’s” – Accountable Care Organizations (DONE – in Utah)
3. Medicaid Expansion

The message to every state legislator is simple:  Do Not Participate in Medicaid Expansion, even if it sounds good.  The bottom line is that Republican governors WANT the federal funds they will get now, even if it goes away in the future and becomes an unfunded mandate.

Republicans that support redistribution of wealth (which is how Medicaid works) are violating basic principles of their own party’s platform and should be censured and in states where conventions endorse, those candidates should be held accountable and not receive the party’s endorsement.

If you agree, we need your help – volunteer help and financial support.  Text “ALF” to 313131 now.  $10, $25, $50, $100  or more is greatly appreciated.

Lesbian Mom Wants Daughter to Grow Up Gay

0 No Comments

The truth is exposed.  LGBT activists have always been on the move to not only ask for “equality” but to be able to evangelize and recruit.  Not only does this mother’s opinion editorial make our case, it also makes the case for the fallacy that homosexuals are “born that way.”

Having lived and worked within the gay community for most of my adult life in Los Angeles, Dallas and New York City in the entertainment industry, I do know this and I’ve experienced it on a personal level.  I watched as one by one male friends were lured into the clique that has become a gay (or gay-promoting) casting couch.  If you weren’t wearing a red ribbon at cabaret or Tony Award ceremonies, you were blacklisted.

That does not mean I do not treat my gay friends as I would anyone. Indeed, fifty percent of my staff in my NYC entertainment-related company were gay because they were – well – the best at what they did. I held them to the same standard I held heterosexuals because our clients were primarily minors who came to NYC to work with Broadway professionals.

Here is this lesbian mother’s editorial for your review.  

In short, this debate is not really about fairness or equality.  It is about forcing everyone to accept homosexuality and same sex parenting as a norm.

And if you don’t, you will pay.

You will pay dearly as is this 70-year old Washington florist did. Her story is real and it’s an example of the new fascism creeping over America and casting its shadow over constitutional protections no longer regarded as constitutional.

Salt Lake Police Officer Censured for Faith Speaks Out

0 No Comments

After several months of silence, the Salt Lake City police officer that was suspended for refusing to celebrate homosexuality by performing in the Utah Gay Pride Parade because of his religious beliefs that homosexuality is a sin and marriage is defined as between a man and a woman has broken his silence.

Read his powerful and compassionate letter that he recently released to the public.

Statement of Police Officer who asked not to ride in gay pride parade

He is asking the Utah legislature to adopt a bill that will treat ALL fairly without discriminating against one’s First Amendment right to religious liberty. That bill is HB 322, sponsored by Representative LaVar Christensen. This bill falls back on generic non-discrimination language already found in the Utah Code and uses the word “all.” All does mean all.

However, we have received word that the members of the legislature are confused by the LDS Church’s statement that it supports LGBT right in hiring and housing as long as it protects religious liberty. Apparently some believe this means they should support SB 99, the public accommodations bill and SB 100, the non-discrimination bill.

Neither of these two bills protect religious liberty. They are totally unacceptable and are the reason this police officer was censured in the very city in Utah that was the first to adopt an “anti-discrimination” law.

We have received word that the LGBT activists in Utah do NOT support HB 322, but insist on their trigger language “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.”

We must be very clear on this issue: Under NO circumstances should the language “gender identity” and “sexual orientation” be codified.

Those four words constitute the specific language that created this tragic scenario for this police officer. He is only one of many across this nation that have been harmed by zealous pro-LGBT activists who are using non-discrimination laws as stepping stones to their final destination: the demise of traditional marriage and religion. Watch this trailer of the Utah Gay Pride Festival and Parade as evidence. (Click on the button to override the block and it will play.)

TRAILER for Utah Gay Pride video

Although this example is from Utah, this is a NATIONAL campaign funded by millions of dollars through the Human Rights Campaign and the Southern Law Poverty Center. If it can happen in Utah, it can happen anywhere. Millions of dollars of corporate funding is now supporting LGBT rights to trample on religious liberty. Look at the corporate sponsors and supporters in that video again.

It IS happening in your state.

Listen to the Cherilyn Eagar Radio Show Saturday, February 28, 2015 from Noon-1 PM, Mountain time AM 1430 KLO, or online www.KLOradio.com. We will be talking with Jim Noorlander, a researcher and speaker on the topic of morality in law and also Steve and Janice Graham of www.StandardofLiberty.com who will address LGBT activism and morality.

Then on March 7, 2015 we will visit with Tanisha Martin, a surviver of 50 Shades of Grey in real life who has been on several national network shows along with Jennifer Roback Morse of the Ruth Institute in San Diego, both to discuss the huge negative impact of the sexualization of America’s children and what they recommend as solutions.

With our major concerns about international affairs, Islamic terrorism, the economy, nationalizing of education reforms, immigration policy and health care overreach, nothing trumps the critical issue of the destruction of marriage and family and the abuse of children under cover of “LGBT” rights. The destruction of marriage and the family and the silencing of religious liberty is destroying our nation’s national security and economic stability and strength.

Please stay informed and follow what your elected officials are doing. You elected them. They are accountable to you. If you have information specific to your state that you would like us to post, please contact us at Cherilyn@AmericanLeadershipFund.com

After several months of silence, the Salt Lake City police officer that was suspended for refusing to celebrate homosexuality by performing in the Utah Gay Pride Parade because of his religious beliefs that homosexuality is a sin and marriage is defined as between a man and a woman has broken his silence.

Here are some bills making their way through the Utah Legislature that need our attention.

1. SB 99 – Public Accommodations – Jim Dabakis
VOTE NO!
This bill will make it legal for a person that “sincerely believes” he or she is the opposite sex to enter a woman’s bathroom, shower area or locker room. Click here for contacting the Utah Senate. This has already begun in Utah, at Park City High School. We will be inviting everyone to an online presentation soon. If you want to be on our invitation list, please click to sign up now.

2. SB 100 – Anti-Discrimination – Steve Urquhart
Vote NO!  Click on the blank video and it will start.

TRAILER for Utah Gay Pride video from Robert Starling on Vimeo.

3. HB 322 – Religious Liberty Recognition and Protection – L. Christensen
VOTE YES!

Representative Christensen is an attorney who crafted Utah’s Amendment 3, protecting marriage as the union between a man and a woman. He has created this bill to incorporate the protection of all Americans from unfair housing and hiring practices, as well as the protection of their religious beliefs.

4. HJR 14 – Call for a Constitutional Convention

Much misinformation has been disseminated by well-meaning legislators and citizens who are relatively new to this fight for states’ rights. This is a dangerous solution that will put the original U.S. Constitution at risk by putting it in the hands of people such as Nancy Pelosi and others in Congress (the entity that calls the convention) in charge. As frustrated and concerned as we are about the overreach of the federal government, we must clearly understand the intent of the founders and what the Constitution actually says.

Please watch this informative video. The attorney that introduces it is Mark Stubbs, a former member of the Idaho legislature, an attorney and long time friend and advisor of American Leadership Fund.

4.  Forbes Magazine Barbeques Utah Governor Herbert’s ObamaCare Medicaid Expansion – “Worst Than We Thought…”  Here are the links to the articles.

Healthy Utah Obamacare Expansion – Worse Than Expected

Governor Herbert’s ObamaCare Expansion Won’t Work

Will Governor Herbert Engage in ObamaCare Debate Or Stick With Name Calling?

It takes three policies at the state level for ObamaCare to work:

1.  State Exchange.  Check.

2.  Implementation of ACO (glorified government-run HMO).  Check.

3.  Medicaid Expansion.

If we put all three in place, Utah is saying YES to ObamaCare.

Contact your legislators today – email and phone.  Here’s the list.

Stay connected for more information.

A New Year’s Resolution – Three Simple Steps for American Leadership

Comments Off

American Leadership Fund

A Senator’s Inspiring Hopeful Message – And A Warning!


Another Conservative Business Owner Targeted

Three ACTION Steps for 2015

It’s another New Year.  Our message is simple:  A real hero, Senator Tom Coburn, retired from the U.S. Senate due to health concerns.  He left his colleagues with the message of the century.  It is both a message of inspiring hope and a warning.

Our only hope is that the Senate will heed his warning. Please watch this incredible American leader, the personification of the kind of leader we seek.  Get inspired and share his message far and wide.

WATCH THIS VIDEO!!!

It’s your voice we need now more than ever to stop Liberals who are destroying our freedom and states rights with an over-reaching federal government.

New Year’s Resolution:  Take Action NOW!
American Leadership Fund is asking for your consideration of this New Year’s resolution:

RESOLVED – ACTION #1:  Support only conservative-owned and managed businesses and corporations.
We will continue to make excellent recommendations.  Here is one that you MUST know about – we ask for your support in ordering products from this company that you normally purchase at the store.  Listen to this CEO, Frank Vandersloot – on the O’Reilly Factor.

He is a man of courage who stood up to the Obama Administration’s bullying, who put him on their top enemy list for his strong support of the Republican presidential nominee.

The Human Rights Campaign targeted him for his conservative stance supporting marriage between a man and a woman.

Then the IRS audited him and found NO violations!

This is unbelievable, but it is happening.  If we don’t stop this now, it could happen to any of us.  We must rally behind these good businesses and principled ownership.

WATCH THIS VIDEO!


These are the companies we will continue to highlight for our support.  Every purchase from this online store will benefit American Leadership Fund.  If you would like more information, please fill out this simple form.

RESOLVED – ACTION #2:  Consider a sustaining membership with a MONTHLY donation of $5, $10, $15, or $20 or more.
It’s costly to communicate to so many in all 50 states.  Along with your contributions to your faith, if you – and everyone on our list – would donate just a little, American Leadership Fund would be well on the way to establishing the funds needed to help our conservative candidates make it through coming primaries and beyond the “establishment” rank-and-file old-guard that has brought this nation down.

RESOLVED – ACTION #3:  Please fast and pray for America and our leaders.

The farther the people and our elected leaders move away from God, the closer this nation gets to its own destruction.  This is our children and grandchildren’s future.

Your help in these three ways will change the face of leadership and the future of America.

For five years now, American Leadership Fund has been a strong voice to help states stand on state sovereignty, to fight the “common core” nationalization of education, to stop ObamaCare and the invasion of our borders by terrorists, drug cartels and illegal immigrants, and to preserve Life and marriage against the unconstitutional judicial activism that has sought vigorously to overturn the voice of the people.

Your donation will also keep The Cherilyn Eagar Radio Show LIVE and on air across the nation!

Here is the latest broadcast featuring co-hosts Hollywood’s Why Guy, Jeff Chamberlain and the Constitutional Councilman Tim Irwin, with an interview with Andy Schlafly, legal counsel for the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons and an update on what the case before the US Supreme Court means.  As well as our take on what the Republican Party should do with House Speaker John Boehner.  Share!


With your continued support, we can continue to provide you updates and regular online seminars on important issues and we will prevail.

We have extended our special offer of a book that is a MUST-read.

As presidential hopefuls line up in 2015, this expose of how Kingmakers “anoint” our presidential nominees is vital information for you and your children to have.

Cher-film.JPGFaithfully,

 

 

President, American Leadership Fund

P.S.  Some have asked, why American Leadership Fund and not another fund?

American Leadership Fund is not a single-issue or a libertarian fund.  It is solidly conservative in the tradition of the Founders. 

It is one of the few funds that supports constitutionally conservative candidates and causes across the board.  We are socially-morally conservative, as well as fiscally conservative. They are inseparable. 

When people make poor moral choices, statistics show they typically end up on welfare, and that is the chief cause of bloated entitlements destroying this nation’s fiscal stability.

Please help us reach our goal before our January 31st deadline – whatever you are able. We need your support now.
