Chris Herrod is the Ronald Reagan of the 3rd Congressional Race

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865684771/Op-ed-Chris-Herrod-is-the-Ronald-Reagan-in-the-3rd-Congressional-District-Race.html

This opinion editorial was published in Utah’s largest paper, the Deseret News, July 15, 2017.  Editor’s Note:  July 15, 2017 marks the 23rd anniversary of my mother Dorothy Bacon’s passing.  She was a great American and an ardent supporter of Ronald Reagan in California and the principles for which he stood when she moved back to her native state Utah.  

She and my father, Samuel Kenneth Bacon, a urologist, encouraged him to run for public office and helped arrange for his landmark speech delivered to the California Medical Association on the dangers of socialized medicine, known as Medicare/Medicaid.  The day it passed in 1965, he warned, “This is the first day of the end of quality delivery of medicine in America.”  His words were prophetic.  

Today Establishment Republicans are chastising the few remaining faithful Republicans that believe Reagan’s warning.  

I want my party back.  It’s being hijacked by leftists who identify as libertarians and globalists, working both sides of the aisle, while masquerading as Republicans.  A true Republican believes as Reagan did:  “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are:  ‘I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.'”  

Whatever happened to limited government, free enterprise and the principles of state and national sovereignty, the US Constitution and Bill of Rights?  

I’m taking “my” party back and I hope you will join me.  

This piece is dedicated to my courageous parents.  We have personally known the Herrod family, Dr. Niles and Janet Herrod for many years. There could not be a finer family and home in which Chris Herrod was raised. I also wish to thank the Deseret News for publishing this opinion on that special date.     

Forty years ago Ronald Reagan was recruited to defend conservative values as a presidential candidate. According to rank-and-file media and the GOP establishment, Reagan was the candidate to fear, an “extremist,” dangerous to America.

As with Donald Trump today, Reagan seized upon trigger issues: the economy, jobs, the sell-out of America’s workers, within a growing nationalistic environment.

But the time was right. Voters had suffered from high inflation at home and America had been embarrassed abroad. They were ready for Reagan’s traditional Western-civilization message, while the establishment dismissed him as too old and too conservative to win.

Sound familiar? Some “Never Trumpers” are still reeling from Trump’s win and raising their voices in the midterms, where two special elections are being held. One is in Utah’s 3rd Congressional District, replacing Congressman Jason Chaffetz. The other is to replace Sen. Jeff Sessions in Alabama. Evidence shows that Indivisible.org, an organization with ties to liberal-globalist George Soros funding, is on the ground working in both races to defeat the conservative choice.

In Utah, these town hall protesters have posted on Facebook, urging their supporters to gather signatures and switch party affiliation to vote Republican. Their goal is to elect the current Provo mayor — a former registered Democrat.

The candidate with the most Reaganesque message, and the experienced record to prove it, is former Utah Rep. Chris Herrod. According to the liberal mindset, he is the one to be “feared.” While in the Legislature his overall score card, based on a constitutional, fiscally conservative score, was 80 percent.

In 2016, Herrod served as the Ted Cruz state chairman, the candidate who cleared the Utah presidential preference vote by a whopping 51-point lead. However, when Trump was nominated, Herrod became one of his strongest supporters and traveled with a team of speakers to help Trump win Utah with an 18-point lead over Clinton. Sen. Cruz recently endorsed Herrod.

Meanwhile, through 2015, Provo’s mayor continued to support Democratic candidates, including Salt Lake’s liberal mayor Ralph Becker. In 2016, he confessed to writing in a friend’s name instead of voting for the Republican nominee.

While Rep. Herrod built a trusted record voting consistently to lower taxes, the mayor supported raising taxes under a creative label “utility fees,” doubling the revenue, while citizens were unaware.

While Herrod defended America First law enforcement policies for strong and safe borders, the Provo mayor placed weak leaders in local law enforcement. It was actually his own hand-picked police chief who recently resigned over allegations of sexual assault.

Finally, Herrod has voted consistently to support the U.S. Constitution as the sovereign rule of law. Meanwhile, the mayor instituted globalist “sustainable” policies that align with the Paris Accord. Through the mayor’s “Vision 2030” initiative, Provo is now mirroring the very policies President Trump has courageously abandoned because they harm American business and prosperity.

Around July 25, ballots will be mailed. Citizens concerned for their children’s future prosperity should strongly consider voting for the trusted, experienced candidate in this race most aligned with Reagan’s conservative policies: Chris Herrod for Congress.

In 2011, the Deseret News and Salt Lake Tribune editorial boards named Cherilyn Bacon Eagar Wasatch Woman of the Year — Community Service as the first Utah Republican woman to run for the U.S. Senate and for her service raising funds for philanthropic causes.  She serves on the national Phyllis Schlafly Eagles Board of Governors, was elected three times to the Utah Republican Party State Central Committee and was elected as a 2016 Utah presidential elector.

Caution Utah 3rd Congressional District: The Republican Platform is still worth voting for

The Republican Platform is worth voting for, and the voters deserve a candidate that not only says he believes in it, but has the record to prove it.  If you live in the 3rd Congressional District, you may have received your mail-in ballot already to select your first choice to replace Congressman Jason Chaffetz, who vacated it to take a position at Fox News.

Before you send that ballot in, I hope you will review this research and that it will be useful in helping you make a wise decision.  It is well-cited and as accurate as possible.

In spite of the frustrations toward the two major parties, they are still the two parties through which we can best influence the outcome.  If you have been disappointed that some candidates that call themselves Republican have not been true to their promises after elected, you deserve a candidate that can be trusted.

Many who know Chris Herrod know he is that trusted candidate.  They have watched him while serving in the Republican Party’s highest deliberative body, standing fearlessly against the Establishment and for the people’s right to have a voice in the process.  He has supported legislation to put this country, its workers and families first.  I am among those that have watched him and supported him.  I can describe him with two adjectives:  passionate and courageous.

Unfortunately, one candidate running against Herrod has a record showing he does not believe in Republican principles.  He is the former Provo Mayor.  After reviewing this information, please ask yourself:  Do the people of Utah’s 3rd Congressional District who believe in Republican principles deserve this kind or representation in Washington DC?  

This sums it up.

Please help us take our party and platform back.  Vote for a Republican who has walked the walk for its principles.  Chris Herrod.  Donate and get involved now!  www.HerrodforCongress.com

Backed by Far-Leftist Groups

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)

Covering Up a Sex Assault after a Questionable Hiring

Economic Development Failures

Illegal/Unethical Use of City Resources

Intimidation Tactics

iProvo

Parking: Convention Center and Downtown

Parking: Neighborhoods

Spending Increases

Tax Increases

Transparency

Utah Transit Authority (UTA)

Utility Fee Increases

1. Affiliation with the Democratic Party

John Curtis was Unaffiliated for a long time, then he registered Democrat in 1998: http://imgur.com/a/K6dUV

John Curtis ran for state senate against Curt Bramble in 2000. Here was his website that year: http://imgur.com/a/RIpOa

John Curtis lost in a landslide to Bramble, but he stayed active in the Democratic Party and was elected Utah County Democratic Party Chairman for one term in 2002: http://www.deseretnews.com/article/975560/Utah-County-Democrats-pick-a-chief.html

In 2007, Jeff Alexander resigned his seat in the legislature. John Curtis went in to the county clerk and switched his affiliation to Republican. He ran against several other candidates, and the Republican delegates gave him a one-vote victory over Chris Herrod, but at that time the state party chair got to make the final choice, and Chairwoman Enid Greene chose Chris Herrod: http://archive.sltrib.com/story.php?ref=/news/ci_8375983

Curtis then ran for Mayor in 2009, but of course that’s a non-partisan race. He won, and then won reelection in 2013.

Nevertheless, Curtis continues to keep close ties to Utah Democrats. He donated to far-left liberal Ralph Becker’s reelection campaign in 2015: http://imgur.com/a/SddvD

According to Aimee Winder Newton, Curtis also donated to the campaign on her Democratic opponent, Dan Snarr, in 2014. However, I do not have access to an original source to back up that claim (though it is highly likely to be true because Snarr is Curtis’s brother-in-law).

2. Backed by Far-Leftist Groups

John Curtis is backed by several far-left groups and individuals. These people are encouraging Democrats to register as Republicans in order to vote in the Republican primary for John Curtis. Here is a small sampling of how these liberal groups are campaigning for John Curtis: http://imgur.com/a/3R8Wn

3. Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)

John Curtis is the biggest proponent there is of the controversial $150 million Bus Rapid Transit project. This video explains some of the problems with the BRT project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qFIZNHW-fg

He once said, “We want bus rapid transit, we want it to move forward.” Source: http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865598005/Provo-City-Council-pushes-to-advance-bus-rapid-transit.html

Even though citizens successfully collected the required number of signatures for a referendum on BRT, Curtis blocked the proposal from going onto the ballot: http://www.sltrib.com/home/3991954-155/provo-orem-petitioners-push-forward-on

Even the Salt Lake Tribune, which seemingly supports BRT, said he should let the project be put on the ballot: http://www.sltrib.com/opinion/3978974-155/let-them-drive

Ten BRT facts:

  1. The Provo-Orem Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system is a $150 million transit project that will replace UTA’s already existing 830 bus route.
  2. This particular 10.5-mile long route was chosen because it is the only one that qualifies for federal funding, and without those funds the project will not move forward. Even proponents of the project agree that the proposed route was not chosen because it was the best route. Rather, the proposed route was chosen because it qualifies for federal funds.
  3. Funding for the Provo-Orem BRT construction project will come from several different sources. President Obama and UTA have proposed that $75 million come from the federal government, $65 million from Utah County, and $10 million from the cities of Provo and Orem.
  4. The Provo-Orem BRT project will cost approximately $14.3 million per mile to build.
  5. The Provo-Orem BRT road construction project will require the tearing out of two (and in some cases more) lanes of traffic so that bus-only lanes (called “dedicated lanes”) and loading stations can be constructed down the middle of the roads along the BRT route. This construction will occur on major thoroughfares throughout Orem and Provo, including University Parkway, University Avenue, and Provo’s 900 East.
  6. No left turns will be permitted along the Provo-Orem BRT route except at certain traffic lights.
  7. Rather than resolve traffic problems, the Provo-Orem BRT project will create additional traffic problems. Traffic along the construction route will result in more congestion, greater frustration for motorists, longer travel times, and more pollution.
  8. Lanes for car, truck, and bus traffic will be much narrower in areas where dedicated Provo-Orem BRT lanes are installed. Some lanes will be eliminated. Skinnier lanes will also make for more difficult transit for emergency and other larger vehicles.
  9. The Provo-Orem BRT project threatens to divert critical funding from other much-needed road construction and maintenance projects throughout Utah County. (John Curtis’s solution: just raise taxes! That’s why he supported Proposition One.)
  10. The buses running along UTA’s already existing 830 route, which will be replaced by the Provo-Orem BRT system, are running at only a tiny fraction of their capacity: an average of 3,600 daily riders. UTA claims that number will jump to 12,900 riders per day once BRT is built. It is difficult to validate UTA’s claim that ridership will increase simply by adding more buses, exclusive bus-only lanes, and spending $150 million to do so. There is no justification for UTA’s claim that “If you build it, they will come”—especially in light of the low ridership numbers that currently exist along the route.

4. Covering Up a Sex Assault after a Questionable Hiring

Utah’s media has covered this story rather extensively, but there’s a line (bolded below) from this KSL article that juxtaposes the statement Curtis made when the story first broke with differing information that came out a little while later. Here is the article: https://www.ksl.com/?sid=44476085&nid=148

Newly released police records shed light on sexual assault allegations against Provo’s former police chief that forced him to resign in March.

John King said he had consensual sex four times with a volunteer at his department, according to Unified police documents released Tuesday.

The woman reporting a series of assaults by King said otherwise in interviews with investigators. …

… “(The woman) walked into the Utah County Attorney’s Office and disclosed she was raped by the chief of police in Provo,” a Unified police report dated Feb. 9 states.

The woman said she told Provo Mayor John Curtis “brief details” about what happened.

Curtis asked King to step down in March. The mayor and King at the time said the chief was leaving because of family issues and did not mention the sexual misconduct allegations. Later that week, news of the allegations surfaced.

Curtis said King’s reputation was damaged but no policies or laws had been broken. He said he and King agreed it was in the best interest of the city that King resign.

It is quite obvious that Curtis tried to cover up the sex assault allegation when he originally announced King’s resignation. Why did Curtis not just come clean at that time? Even if the allegations against King were false, Curtis should have known that the information would come out through police reports, so why lie initially about the reason for the resignation? Curtis should have either said nothing when King resigned or told the truth rather than make up a false reason for King’s resignation.

Shortly after King’s resignation, the media discovered that King had recently been investigated for sexual assault. Curtis then held a press conference, and it’s pretty funny to watch the media basically call him out for lying initially about why King had resigned. The press conference is available here: http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/mayor-says-former-police-chief-resigned-due-to-totality-of/article_524de990-f8cd-58b6-9935-054cfedec595.html

King never should have been hired to begin with. After Provo Police Chief Richard Gregory resigned in 2013, Mayor Curtis did an extensive search. He took over six months to find a new Chief of Police, and had over sixty applicants. Source: http://www.heraldextra.com/provo-names-new-police-chief/article_483109c0-51ef-11e3-a0e8-0019bb2963f4.html

Out of those applicants, Mayor Curtis selected John King, who had a questionable employment history. King worked 25 years in Montgomery County MD, rising to the position of Asst. Chief and there seem to have been no problems there. In 2002 he was promoted to Asst. Chief. Then in 2007 he retired from the county, and took the job of police chief in Gaithersburg MD. King was investigated for claiming a disability pension from Montgomery County, but the investigation was resolved and it was determined he hadn’t broken any laws. Source: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/03/08/AR2009030801777.html

King was Chief of Police in Gaithersburg for two-and-a-half years, but In January 2010 the town council met in private to discuss a “personnel matter,” after which they immediately brought in an interim police chief and two days later announced Chief King was leaving “to pursue other opportunities in the private sector.” Source: http://towncourier.com/2010/G3/pdf/TCGThree0110Web.pdf

Then he seems to have been out of work until Dec 2011 when he was hired as Training Director in the Baltimore PD. But he only lasted six months and then he was apparently asked to resign, even being “escorted from his office.” King’s public statement was that the acting Police Commissioner “wants to go in a different direction.” The police spokesman said only that King’s departure was a “personnel matter.”

Sources: http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2012-06-27/news/bal-city-police-training-director-resigns-amid-misconduct-complaints-20120627_1_overtime-slips-king-commanders and http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2012/06/27/head-of-baltimore-police-training-division-resigns/

Despite King’s less than desirable history, in Jan 2014, he was hired to be Provo police chief by John Curtis.

5. Economic Development Failures

A quote from a recent newspaper article mentioning the current Administration’s abject failure to bring new retail to Provo to broaden the tax base (that’s on Mayor Curtis’ watch):

As part of the presentation there was open discussion about the retail gap in the city and how much sales tax revenue the city is losing in various categories. The numbers are surprising.

An exported taxes report shows Provo is losing $24 million a year in restaurant sales tax, $27 million in pharmaceuticals, $16 million to home centers, $32 million in hardware sales, and the greatest net loss in a year is $53 million in groceries.

Curtis said the administration is willing to shift some of its focus away from places like downtown to answer the residents’ call for retail.

“Be careful what you ask for,” he said. “We hear you. We’ll look at incentives, but you will need to be patient, be engaged and you must shop in Provo.”

Source: http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/central/provo/provo-mayor-talks-retail-with-residents-at-town-hall-meeting/article_2c780522-d569-5ca4-a9b2-bc313417f9e9.html

6. Illegal/Unethical Use of City Resources

EXAMPLE ONE:

John Curtis’s top political appointee is Corey Norman, who holds the title of “Provo Deputy Mayor.” In 2016, Norman was fined $250 for violating a state law that prohibits “using the email of a public entity to advocate for or against a ballot proposition.” Source: http://www.sltrib.com/news/3960425-155/provo-orem-officials-fined-for-illegally

Here’s the exact wording of the law:

Utah Code 20A-11-1203 “…a public entity may not make an expenditure from public funds for political purposes or to influence a ballot proposition…” (violation results in a Class B misdemeanor)

Utah Code 20A-11-1205 “…a person may not send an email using the email of a public entity: (a) for a political purpose; (b) to advocate for or against a ballot proposition…”

Curtis refused to reprimand Corey Norman for breaking this law. In fact, he responded by threatening to sue Utah County Clerk-Auditor Bryan Thompson for imposing the law. (Norman has also stated that he sent out the email under the direction of Curtis.)

EXAMPLE TWO:

This anecdote comes from a longtime Provo resident:

Mayor Curtis is very very good at some things. One is marketing – his PR and media budget is massive, and he “sells” not just Provo City, but himself.

A city employee tells me that when the Mayor came on board, there were three people in Public Relations. He let one go as part of the 2008 cost saving measures made necessary by the Recession. But since then he has hired 8-10 more people. They do a great job of filming videos, doing contests, giving away ice cream and tee shirts, making a splash on social media. Provology. The Rooftop Concerts. No question they are good at what they do, and John Curtis is too. He’s a great ambassador for John Curtis.

EXAMPLE THREE:

Provo City holds a monthly concert during warm weather months called “The Rooftop Concert Series,” which is funded by the city. On June 2, 2017, John Curtis showed up and hijacked the concert by going on stage and having his supporters go through the audience to gather signatures for his congressional campaign. Perhaps this was not illegal (or perhaps it is), but it definitely raises eyebrows and is an ethical use of city funds.

7. Intimidation Tactics

John Curtis’s Provo City employees used intimidation tactics to prevent BRT petitioners from gathering signatures in public areas. Source: http://www.sltrib.com/home/3932939-155/rolly-memo-to-signature-gatherers-beware

Here is an anecdote sent to me by a Provo citizen and activist:

Connected with the BRT saga were two well-publicized instances of Mayor Curtis getting squarely in the way of the rights of the people – his own constituents. This is an obvious concern for anyone who wants to feel their federal elected official is going to actually represent them instead of yanking away their rights.

The first time I heard of someone being removed it was Sharon Anderson, a petition organizer. She called me to tell me she had been ordered to leave the Rec Center by an employee. In her account, “…about 8:30 a young man came out and stood nearby as I was speaking with one of the citizens.  When we were through talking, he came over and said I would have to leave because no soliciting was allowed on city property which he said included the whole block.  I asked him ‘What about free speech?’ and he repeated soliciting was not allowed.  I said I wasn’t selling anything, but he still said I would have to leave…”

The second instance was when Mayor Curtis instructed the Police Dept. to remove people who were collecting signatures on the referendum petition from two places: the grounds of the Rec Center and the grounds of the County Building.

Soon after an 80-year-old petition circulator named Philip Hinckley told me he had been at the County Building, and two city policemen came out of the building and told him he couldn’t stand so near the door. It was a hot day and Philip asked them if he could just stay under the building overhang for the shade, many feet from the door. They responded he would have to stand in the sun, about 20 feet from the door. He complied, but the sun started to bother him and he went home before long.

At that point I spoke to Bryan Thompson, County Clerk-Auditor and Bill Lee, County Commissioner, and they both verified that signature gatherers could be on public property. So the city policemen left our people alone after that, on county property. But the battle on city property at the Rec center heated up, and Philip Hinckley, in addition to four other people at various times, were escorted off the property by between two and four officers, several times.

This got the attention of the Tribune, the ACLU, and Libertas. Sources: https://www.facebook.com/libertasutah/videos/1199233813443607/?fallback=1 and http://www.sltrib.com/news/3960425-155/provo-orem-officials-fined-for-illegally

8. iProvo

iProvo was “a financially distressed fiber Internet service in Provo.” In 2013, it was “sold to Google — for a whole dollar. The city, meanwhile, will have to pay millions to close the deal and to pay off bonds used to build the network in the first place.” Source: https://venturebeat.com/2013/04/24/iprovo-sad/

In 2011, John Curtis raised utilities to pay for the iProvo bond: http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/central/provo/provo-s-utility-rate-increase-fee-set/article_45ae703b-1480-5923-89c5-683397046899.html

9. Parking: Convention Center and Downtown

John Curtis put Provo City at significant liability by breaking the city’s 2009 contract with Utah County to provide parking in exchange for the county building its convention center in downtown Provo. Utah County is suing Provo for at least $4 million in damages: http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/utah-county-sues-provo-for-millions-over-convention-center-parking/article_194fad5e-bc40-56b3-b409-ec9dc6a46ad6.html

From the Herald article above:

The county, the city and the redevelopment agency entered an interlocal agreement in 2009 outlining the responsibilities of each entity for building the convention center, which has been operational since 2012.

That agreement stated Provo and the Provo Redevelopment Agency will “Provide, at their expense, all parking spaces, parking facilities, parking lots, parking structures, and related real property, easements and appurtenances, as required to both meet Provo City’s requirements and to adequately serve Phase One of the Convention Center … at such locations and in such a manner as approved by Utah County.”

According to the complaint, neither Provo nor the redevelopment agency have kept up that part of the agreement.

The Utah Valley Convention Center is a huge tourism draw for downtown Provo. However, the Convention Center is losing a ton of business over the lack of parking, which in turn hurts Provo downtown businesses.

Here’s another article that provides more context on the parking issue: http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/central/provo/utah-county-and-provo-spar-over-parking-for-the-utah/article_640cb46c-2ca4-52dc-8b7c-9256a2175974.html

10. Parking: Neighborhoods

Provo has a parking crisis in certain neighborhoods in the city because Planning & Development for years pushed higher density and lower parking ratios, assuming that people would magically stop using cars. They didn’t. That’s on Mayor Curtis’ watch. Source: http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/central/provo/provo-in-the-slow-lane-on-parking-problems/article_c93ebe61-87ed-5988-b57b-7bbb7e603a82.html

11. Property Taxes

Curtis raised property taxes by 2.28% in 2015, and he proposed raising them by another 3% in 2016: http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=40077694

12. Proposition One

Proposition One was a controversial 2015 ballot proposal to increase sales taxes permanently for roads and UTA: 60% of the money would have gone to cities and counties for roads, and 40% would have gone to UTA as a blank check for UTA to use however it wanted.

John Curtis didn’t just support Proposition One; he actually wrote the pro-Proposition One argument: https://vote.utah.gov/vote/profile/viewPDF.html?id=251250502

Proposition One failed in Utah County by a total of 59.18% against, and only 40.82% in favor: http://www.utahcounty.gov/dept/clerkaud/Elections/documents/SProp1Canvass.pdf

13. RAP Tax

John Curtis campaigned in favor of Provo City’s RAP tax, which was placed on the ballot in 2015. Source: http://www.provo.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=6045

He spent $2,600 promoting the RAP tax: http://imgur.com/a/t9MmY

The RAP tax will cost Provo residents $1.2 million annually.

14. Spending Increases

Larry Walters, a member of the Provo City Council’s Budget Advisory Committee, is running for Provo City Mayor. He wrote this on his 2017 campaign website:

Recent spending trends cannot be maintained. … [S]ince 2008, the per person cost of Provo City government has increased at twice the rate of inflation. We are now spending more per person than at any point in the past 15 years, after adjusting for inflation. We cannot support this rate of spending growth into the future.

15. Tax Increases

This graphic outlines Curtis’s love affair with raising taxes: http://imgur.com/a/ftx5D

16. Transparency

John Curtis doesn’t post his campaign financial information on Provo City’s website: http://www.sltrib.com/news/5332737-155/gehrke-for-all-the-hoopla-signature

17. Utah Transit Authority (UTA)

John Curtis maintains a close relationship with the corrupt Utah Transit Authority (UTA). He pushed for the appointment of Sherrie Hall Everett to UTA’s Board of Trustees. Ms. Everett is perhaps UTA’s biggest apologist and defender, even in the midst of all of UTA’s well-documented corruption.

Sherrie went on a tirade recently against Brent Taylor, the one reformer on UTA’s Board:

http://www.sltrib.com/home/5240810-155/attacked-online-new-uta-board-member

18. Utility Fee Increases

John Curtis loves to hide tax increases through utility fee hikes. It is difficult to track all of the utility fee increases that he has imposed over the years. Here is what Senator Howard Stephenson said about this practice in an email to state delegates on June 14, 2017: “Provo Mayor John Curtis has a history of promoting new taxes, fees, and bond obligations.  That is a non-starter for me. He perfected the art of hiding tax increases in utility bill fees by tacking on fees unrelated to the cost of the utility.  With that practice, he has opened a Pandora’s box that the legislature will now have to close before other cities duplicate it.”

According to Provo City, “Transfers from Enterprise utility funds provide a transfer of 11% of utility sales to the General Fund each fiscal year.” In other words, Provo is billing Provo residents for utilities costs that don’t actually exist, and then the city takes that extra revenue and puts it into its general fund, which can be used to pay for all kinds of other expenses that have nothing to do with utilities. Source: http://www.provo.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=5764

19. Zoning Enforcement

Zoning compliance is poor, because John Curtis said at the beginning of his first term he wouldn’t aggressively enforce zoning violations. As a result, some neighborhoods (Provost South, for instance) have passed the tipping point, are now at 80% rentals, and are no longer healthy viable neighborhoods. The Provo City Council made zoning compliance their No. 1 priority for two years in a row. But the Curtis Administration dragged their feet because of a power struggle about the budget. That’s on Mayor Curtis’ watch.

Why every American should support Donald Trump

I delivered this speech at a Trump rally on Tuesday, November 1, 2016 at the Utah State Capitol.  Please share.

I am a mother and a grandmother, the first Republican woman to run for US Senate in Utah, a conservative talk show host, one of Utah’s Republican State Electors … and I am a Mormon.  I am here today to proudly support Donald J. Trump for President of the United States because he is the moral choice.

We’re not voting for the Pope. We’re voting for the President. As Phyllis Schlafly, the First Lady of the conservative movement and my long time friend and mentor, once said, “Like it or not, we have a two party system and Jesus is NOT on the ballot.”

And Evan McMullin, you are not Utah’s “savior.” In fact, you are stealing votes from the moral choice and giving them to the crooked choice, and you’ve admitted it. How principled is THAT?

Phyllis passed away at age 92 just one day before the launch of her final book, The Conservative Case for Trump. She endorsed him when it was not easy. She knew it‘s not about personality; it’s about the principles.

She said, “I asked him to stand by the Republican platform, because we have the best conservative platform we’ve ever had. He endorses it, he will stand by it, and he is a real conservative.”

To my colleagues in the mainstream media and their pollsters: This is not about you and your feeble attempts to manipulate the people with your spin and collusion. You have been exposed, and it’s because of Donald Trump’s tenacity and leadership that you have been brought down. He is the wrecking ball we’ve needed.

And Gloria Allred, we know who YOU are. No one condones assault. This election is not about you and your drama, and your opportunistic and phony charges against Republican men – charges that have been debunked every election cycle.  This is about our children’s future. It’s about the Supreme Court and who will appoint the next four justices – and many more judges and thousands of Washington D.C. bureaucrats.

Let’s look at what’s at stake for our children: We can maintain our “high moral ground” to vote for NeverTrump, while more babies are aborted, our second amendment rights vanish, and the Supreme Court is forever changed. In fact, according to one of Trump’s advisors, former Ambassador Faith Whittlesey, your NeverTrump vote is treason to the Pro-Life movement.

Do we want another former ACLU president, anti-god, -family and -country Ruth Bader Ginsburg, appointed by Bill Clinton?

Or Trump’s commitment to an originalist, respecter of First and Second amendment rights, such as Antonin Scalia, appointed by Ronald Reagan?

Do we want Clinton’s partial birth abortion choices?

Or Trump’s pro-Life choices?

Do we want Clinton’s war on religious liberty?

Or Trump’s championing of the repeal of the Johnson Amendment, restoring the First Amendment to religious institutions and non-profits?

Do we want to continue the Clinton’s globalist sell-out of production and jobs, undermining our rule of law?

Or do we want Donald Trump to fix or eliminate NAFTA, withdraw from TPP, and bring those jobs back home and keep our Constitution the Supreme law of the land?

Do we want Clinton’s open borders, flooding this land with too many that hate America, bringing crime and drugs to harm our children?

Or do we want Trump to make America great again, welcoming immigrants that love this country?

Do we want Clinton, the originator of the unconstitutional single-payer system – called HillaryCare – back in the White House?

Or do we want Donald Trump’s plan to repeal and replace the disastrous ObamaCare?

Do we want to continue the Clinton Corporate Crony machine in Washington DC padding their foundation pockets?

Or do we want Donald Trump to drain that swamp?

Hillary, you tell us that you want to solve our problems with more bureaucracy and government solutions. But I have a message for you: You ARE the problem. Donald Trump IS the solution!

When Mr. Trump spoke at Phyllis Schlafly’s funeral he said, “I’m sure that she’s telling us to keep up the fight. Phyllis, we love you, we miss you, and we will never, ever let you down.”

And that, my friends is why Donald Trump IS the moral choice for America!

Together we will make America great again! God bless Donald Trump and God bless America!

Hillary’s America – The Movie – A Decisive Message for 2016

TRAILER

Last week I previewed Dinesh D’Souza’s newest film Hillary’s America, The Secret History of the Democratic Party. I was on the edge of my seat as it moved through history, documenting Congressional votes and naming the who’s who of the real racists, the real oppressors of today, and exposing the lies of the elitists and progressive media.

IMG_1403

We interviewed Dinesh and also Stephen Limbaugh (yes, he is a cousin) who wrote the score, and I was delighted to visit with our friend Jerry Molen again. the film’s producer.

Although there are certainly a few establishment Republicans that have joined with bi-partisan votes that have actually enabled the Democratic agenda through the years, we are focused now on electing a President that will turn this nation around.

To know and understand the ideology, machinations, and strategy of the Democrats and their soon-to-be nominee for U.S. President Hillary Clinton, we urge everyone, especially members of the black and hispanic communities to see this film. It opened in theaters around the country this week.

HILLARY’S AMERICA – THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY

PROGRESSIVE CRITICS
The hard Left, including Variety Magazine with its expected progressive views are literally apoplectic about the nomination of Donald Trump. They want the masses, which they control with thought policing and free speech silencing, to believe that this man Trump is precisely what he is not. But that is a strategy. Today’s riots and shootings make my years of growing up in Hollywood and watching Watts on fire at night from my Hollywood Hills home look tame. Today’s marxist community organizers are hard at work to make sure a Trump election will not happen. Not because he is a racist, but because THEY are and they are deceptively covering up who they really are.

The truth is, Donald Trump is speaking more boldly and bravely than any other political candidate has ever dared, without even spitting up a burp of politically correct pablum. Instead, for every pundit push-back, he presses forward even harder.

In the beginning the mainstream-controlled media wanted you to believe that only 1% thought Donald Trump would be the Republican nominee. Most other media outlets wanted you to believe that he was simply a clown, and they drilled that story over and over, until you would believe it.

The Republican establishment lost at the Republican National Convention. But during my stay at the convention last week on media row reporting for my radio station KTALK Media AM 630 in Salt Lake City, I was able to navigate in private circles, including one in which I was with Reince Priebus and the Bloomberg media commentator, who was chagrined that I did not know who he was. I still cannot remember his name, and that’s the point. Who would say, “Do you know who I am?” I honestly didn’t care “who” he was, in that sense. The progressive media are an entitled and arrogant bunch. I will share more in a report to follow on that topic.

We know “who” they are in this sense: They are progressives. They hate this country. They promote globalism. And their strategy is to create tension, division, contention and anger.

Why do so many people believe what they hear or see from this mainstream media? Why should you believe the MSM? Why? I have personally witnessed from my early days in political advocacy that they LIE. They LIE unabashedly, and they get away with it because we have not held them accountable. That is, until Donald Trump entered this race. Few things have been the same since. He has emboldened other politicians and pundits, especially those on the conservative side to speak with courage.

My favorite speech of the Republican National Convention was the one Laura Ingraham delivered. She nailed it. NAILED it. She schooled her colleagues and told them to “Do YOUR Job!” and the crowd erupted in the biggest applause of the week.

You need to watch Laura in action. And by the way, see if you can catch that “Hitler” salute the progressive Left is now saying Laura gave. Really? Serious? These progressive critics are pathetic.


LAURA INGRAHAM CALLS OUT THE PROGRESSIVE MEDIA

Now Trump is the nominee. Like the Bozo the Clown punching bag I had as a kid, for every punch, he bounced back up, and he has defied all odds. He proved that he was not a clown but that he was dead serious. His crass delivery has not-so-oddly drawn more voters to the Republican party in this election than ever before. These voters have been disenfranchised by a globalist sell out that has cost them dearly.

Should we be surprised? Too many jobs lost. The people are beyond hurting. They are angry from the ignored pain of NAFTA and the “free” trade agreements the Clinton’s brought to this country and the reckless immigration policy depressing wages and decreasing the number of jobs available.


WHAT IS NEEDED TO WIN IN NOVEMBER

A president has the authority to renegotiate those foolish trade agreements, but even the Bush administration did not take action. It took Donald Trump to open up the subject and because of him, the GOP is now the new home for the blue collar voter. (More on the trade topic later.)

I have news for the Republican Party. It has been unresponsive for too long and has allowed the progressives to control the narrative and the votes. The GOP is going to need that blue collar vote if it is to defeat Hillary.

Hillary’s America is a strong vehicle. I urge you to get tickets to see this film today!

HILLARY’S AMERICA – THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY

HILLARY AND THE PROGRESSIVE LEFT’S PROPAGANDA AND STRATEGY

The Left’s strategy is found in a small book I’ve had since it was first published in the 1971 and which I annotated and have watched closely it’s impact over the years. It’s called Rules for Radicals, written by Saul Alinsky, the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis while at Wellesley. If you have never read it, here it is. You will note that she is full of marxist-style community organizing philosophy.

Short of spoiler alert, in summary, Hillary’s America documents the Democratic Party’s birth, from the Civil War to today. It describes in great detail the consistency of lies and hypocrisy in the radical Left’s propaganda and purpose. This film includes the Democratic Party’s support of slavery to contemporary policies that continue to keep the masses captive to a government system that keeps people in poverty (e.g. oppression).

All of this has been and continues to be done in the name of fighting oppression and of course showering goodies down on all. This is the ultimate counterfeit.

And so Alinsky got it right when he dedicated his strategy book, Rules for Radicals, to the first radical (counterfeit) of them all – Lucifer.

In fact, former presidential candidate Ben Carson delivered one of the best speeches of the Republican National Convention. This point was front and center in his message to the delegates as a reason why Hillary needs to be exposed and then defeated in November.

WATCH BEN CARSON’S FULL SPEECH

After Carson’s speech I returned to my hotel room and surfed the networks, catching their take on his speech. Fox News praised his truthful expose. MSNBC mocked him and called him the embarrassment of the night, ridiculing his reference to Alinsky and Lucifer, as if that had anything to do with Hillary. CNN was also critical.

This is why I say on the Liberty Lineup Radio Show that friends do not let friends listen to mainstream mind-controlling media. The networks are controlled by the multinational globalist corporations. They are Godless and care only about the bottom line, even if it means to sell out domestic jobs. Well, the people are rising up against that oppression the Democrats created.

Of course they want to ridicule Ben Carson. He and Trump want nothing to do with institutions or governments that will continue to sell out America and its greatness, its jobs and its sovereignty to foreign entities that hate capitalism and liberty. Get ready for their strategic response. It’s already happening.


THE CORRUPTION IN THE CLINTON FOUNDATION

This film Hillary’s America backs up not just her radical ideas that she and her husband brought to the White House the first time around, but it goes into details of the Clinton Foundation, with a look-back at another time in history when foundations became the back door laundering of a fascist, crony capitalist Peron regime in Argentina. This song “And the Money Kept Rolling in (and Out)” from the Broadway musical Evita! describes the Clintons best and should be THEIR theme song. D’Souza used this analogy in his film. It was an analogy I have also used.

SEE HILLARY’S AMERICA – THE FILM AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS!
Hillary’s America has opened this weekend. Make it a box office success by going to see it and by telling your friends. Especially connect with your African-American friends.

No, this film is not propaganda. It is history that has been deliberately kept from you. Mainstream media are propaganda-driven because they are progressive. If this film contained false accusations or were propaganda, law suits would be flying from every direction at this film and its producers. There have been NONE!

It hits hard and the progressive media is expected to continue to call out the dogs to discredit. Especially during the Democratic National Convention.

THE CLINTON FOUNDATION CONNECTION TO THE OREGON AMBUSH

You may know that I’ve been close to the ranchers that were ambushed in Oregon, killing rancher LaVoy Finicum. I connected the dots not only to Harry Reid and his corrupt politics, but also to the Clinton Foundation over its Russian deal to own U.S. uranium mining, from which the Clintons will profit. It’s called Uranium One.

The Clintons are crooked and have been using the environmental movement, as did Al Gore, as a cover up for their own profit. Harry Reid is doing the same in Nevada.

So now in south eastern Oregon, once the most prosperous county in the state, the Clintons have stopped the entire logging industry in the name of saving the forests, and they have continued to push the ranchers off their grazing lands. Now with one last rancher in the area, he and his son are in federal prison for protecting their private property.

Other ranchers went to their aid and support to protest this unjust sentence so that the world would know of this corruption. Now several other ranchers are in jail for exercising their first amendment rights. The company is Uranium One. When you see this film, if you listen closely, you will hear all about it. Yes, the Clinton’s have sold us out to the Russians who will now be mining uranium. In Oregon. Check it out.

It has been anticipated that the Left would spin their reviews against this film. Yes, they mock it and then they distract with lies. But then why wouldn’t they? They are the masters of the lie. That’s all part of Alinsky’s strategy, outlined in Rules for Radicals.

They know that if they repeat a lie long enough, people will believe it as truth.

Candidate Stings – The Gay Pride Parade, Overstock and Paul Mero

In 2010, a mysterious “temple” mailer was received shortly before the convention.  It appeared to be a mailer from the Mike Lee campaign, depicting him in front of the Salt Lake Temple and appealing to voters based on his religion.  It backfired.  The campaign was vigilant and researched the source:  Tim Stewart (Congressman Chris Stewart’s brother), who had worked for Senator Bob Bennett and is now the managing partner for his Washington DC Lobbyist firm.  He received a slap on the hand of a about $1400 in fines.

Every election, consultants get the compulsion to do whatever it takes to win because their next job hinges upon it.  At times politics tends to bring out the most evil in an otherwise very good person.  This typically plays out in the final days of a campaign when tensions are high.  The bombshell will drop and the targeted campaign goes into override to respond.

WATCH OUT FOR SUSPICIOUS 11TH HOUR HIT PIECES
In general, if you receive a damaging piece of literature about a candidate right before or at the convention, it may not have a proper disclaimer on it. It might say something highly sensational. Be careful. It is most likely a bogus piece of literature intended to frame another candidate.

What do you do?

  1. Report it and ignore it or…
  2. Talk to the candidate directly and don’t listen to hearsay. Here’s an example – the rumors going around this week about a gubernatorial candidate.

You may be hearing about or have received an email and a mailed letter from the former Executive Director of Sutherland Institute, Paul Mero.  His message is that gubernatorial candidate Jonathan Johnson’s company supported the gay rights parade and that he is really a liberal in disguise.  Frankly, Paul is not the one to talk about this. He called all of us “nativists” and “racists” for defending our borders and opposing his amnesty bill that got its hearing with the Obama Administration. It morphed into the President’s executive order.

Here are the facts that Mr. Mero did not explain correctly, after having trying to kill our project in the first place that he is now using.

Two years ago, two film maker friends Jeff Chamberlain, Robert Starling and I went to the gay pride festival and parade to film footage of it.  We asked other pro-family organizations that advocate at the capitol to help with this project that we would use to show people the pornographic images and actions taking place along the route and at the event.

Only two organizations got involved – both anti-pornography groups.  The others, encouraged by Sutherland Institute and Paul Mero, did not want to participate.  In fact, I received a text telling me that if we did such a thing, we would be setting the movement back a decade.

We went forward with it in spite of the criticism, and it had a significant impact on cutting back on the lewdness of the event the next year.

Yes, we did expose the fact that ZIONS BANK was in the parade. And OVERSTOCK was as well.

We met with ZIONS Bank and they were so upset they threatened to sue me. My attorney assured me I had done nothing that warranted a lawsuit.

Here is the video – just click on it and it will play in Vimeo.  WARNING – OFFENSIVE MATERIAL.

The Rest of the Story About Overstock

As for Overstock, yes, I was deeply concerned.  And so our radio editorial board invited Jonathan Johnson to meet with us and we asked him directly.  He explained that Overstock is a publicly traded company with a board of directors and shareholders.  It was not his decision to make.  It was Patrick Bryne’s decision.  Jonathan was troubled and met with his family to decide whether he should stay with the company or leave.

He stayed.

In today’s business environment, the larger corporations are presented with a 53-page survey to determine if they are LGBT-friendly.  If they don’t fill it out, they will be blacklisted.  If they do, and if the answers are not reported to the Human Rights’ Campaign’s liking, they will be censured.  If he left, where would Jonathan go to make a lateral move in this environment?

Get a glimpse of this massive survey right here.

The presence of Overstock in the gay pride parade raised a lot of questions about who Jonathan Johnson was in my own mind.

 

But after getting the facts, it is not a truthful statement to say that Jonathan Johnson supports gay marriage or gay rights.

There are few that worked as hard as I to protect Utah’s Marriage law.  It was a decade-long challenge.  I understand Jonathan’s position.

I don’t agree with everything that Jonathan stands for, just as I don’t agree with all that Gary Herbert stands for.

We need a governor that will not simply sit back and say, as Governor Herbert did: “Well, it’s the law now.”

We need leaders that will take the initiative to just say “no” to the key issues, and stand up to the unconstitutional federal courts and regulations coming at us from Washington DC.

So the message for the convention Saturday is this:  STAY CALM.  If in doubt, don’t listen to the person sitting next to you.  Go find the candidate and ask directly.

And if you see Paul Mero, ask HIM to do the same.

Your Cell Phone Funds Abortion and Other Liberal Causes – What You Can Do About It

You may not be aware that some of the largest corporate donors to liberal causes are the mobile phone companies. Between them AT&T and Verizon have provided almost $70 million to liberal politicians.

This money goes to everyone from Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton to Elizabeth Warren right on down to liberals at the state and local level who are making decisions that impact you on a daily basis.

This is so pervasive that AT&T has sponsored more than 9,000 and Verizon more than 4,000 winning liberal candidates. (Sprint, T-Mobile and other mobile operators are not quite as bad, but still provide significant contributions to liberals every election cycle).

EOS-Logo-MLearning this made me so upset, that I went in search of a conservative answer, and I found one. It’s called Eos Mobile. It was founded by conservative activists as an alternative to the liberal agenda of your current phone company.

Eos Mobile has fantastic service across the country with a network of high speed data and voice. It also has prices that are 10-15% lower than Verizon and AT&T for basically the same service.

What attracted me to Eos Mobile is its promise to never give any contributions to liberals. In addition, they give as much as 3% of every dollar you spend to conservative causes.

I reached out to their CEO and he arranged for a special offer to American Leadership Fund members. It includes a free iPhone 5C and waives the activation fees for smart phones. The American Leadership Fund special includes a healthy 2.5 GB of data per device and it has family plans that pool all the data and include unlimited minutes and texts. This special offer also includes other devices and plans that don’t include data.

Best of all, if you identify as a supporter of the American Leadership Fund Eos has agreed to provide us with up to 3% of every bill to continue the work we are pursuing to help conservatives run and win elections.

If everyone on our list would switch to Eos, we would accomplish two important things.

1. We would stop unknowingly providing aid and comfort to the liberals through our phone bill
2. We would be supporting a conservative company and raising significant funds for American Leadership Fund.

I have switched my phones over to Eos, and I am hopeful that each of you will take the time to do so as well. I know some of you won’t do this, but if everyone on our list joined us at Eos Mobile, our combined phone bills would generate almost $20 million for the American Leadership Fund SuperPAC for 2016. With those funds we could help conservative candidates win the close races and change the trajectory of our country.

As always, I appreciate your continued support, but here is an opportunity to stop giving to liberals and to start supporting conservatives with a bill you pay every month. To sign up for this awesome special offer, visit the Eos website and call Eos Mobile today at 877-367-7524 and mention “American Leadership Fund.”

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

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.

DonateBox.JPG

 

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.

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.

A New Year’s Resolution: Support Conservative Businesses

American Leadership Fund
We’d like to encourage you to set a New Year’s Resolution to change your buying habits and to seek out and support conservative businesses when you make your purchases in 2015.

Why should we be concerned?  Because businesses give to political parties and causes, and those funds influence elections and public policy.

The liberal media have convinced Americans that the Republican Party is the party of “big business.”  But after reviewing this information, you will see that this is completely false. In fact, the vast majority of businesses are now supporting liberal causes.

What most do not know is that the major banks which dominate Wall Street are very liberal, as are most of the high tech, Internet and telecommunications corporations. While it is difficult to avoid supporting corporations funding liberal causes and policies, we must start somewhere.

Corporate Scorecards
Here is a site that scores conservative-neutral-liberal corporations:

2nd Vote
This site shows 224 liberal corporations, 124 neutral, and only 17 conservative companies.  (Be aware that these scores reflect some standard conservative positions, including one – “school choice” that most conservatives now understand is forcing private schools to unfairly compete with government subsidized charter schools.)

5 Corporations to Avoid

The Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index
This big corporate index/score card is published each year by the Human Rights Campaign.  It raises over $40 million with the help of major liberal corporations to put pressure on and to do damage to conservative corporations that support marriage between a man and a woman.

Check this HRC ratings list and you will know which companies NOT to support.

Frank-VanderslootAmerican Leadership Fund’s First Corporate Partner of 2015
For 2015, American Leadership Fund has a goal of establishing partnerships with the best of the best corporations.  We have begun with one of our favorites – Melaleuca, The Wellness Company.  Its CEO, Frank Vandersloot is a strong supporter of marriage between a man and a woman and other conservative causes.

Vandersloot was named a top enemy of Barack Obama for having donated to the Romney presidential campaign.  He showed courage with his response – to give another $10,000, which he announced on the O’Reilly Factor.

As one of eight conservative CEOs targeted by the IRS, he again appeared on the O’Reilly Factor further demonstrating that he was not to be intimidated.

Few business leaders have this kind of courage.

The more our culture moves further away from Biblical principles, the more people of faith and of conservative values will need to rally around like-minded businesses if we are to preserve our values in public policy.

We are asking you to help us build this conservative corporate alliance by becoming a preferred customer with Melaleuca and to ask your friends to do the same. This is not MLM.

By simply changing your buying habits from the local store to ordering products online that you would typically order each month, you will access good discounts on quality products and earn a percent back for referring others to do the same.

By so doing, American Leadership Fund will also benefit every time you make a purchase.  It’s a win-win for everyone.

Here’s all you need to do:  Simply fill out this form and we will contact you to answer your questions and help you enroll.

We love Melaleuca products!  This company was the first direct consumer marketing company and has established an excellent reputation over the years.  Plus the products are made right here in America – in Idaho Falls!

Whether household cleaning, nutrition, beauty, fitness or pharmaceuticals you will be impressed at the 400 different products from which to choose.

All you do is purchase online from the Melaleuca website store, and the order will be delivered straight to your doorstep.

We will be adding to our list of corporate partners throughout 2015 and will keep you updated.

Happy New Year!
