Libertarian Calendar for October (continuously updated)

******************************************************************

October 24

FSF Seminar – A New FCC or the Same Old, Same Old?
The National Press Club, 
11:45 a.m. – 2:15 p.m.  

  
The Free State Foundation will hold a lunch seminar titled, “A New FCC or the Same Old, Same Old?” on Thursday, October 24, 2013, at the National Press Club.

With Tom Wheeler and Michael O’Rielly likely to arrive shortly as the new FCC Chairman and Commissioner, the FCC will be back to its full five-member complement. With a newly reconstituted FCC in place, and with ongoing dramatic changes in the communications and Internet marketplace occurring almost daily, this program will explore questions such as: Should we expect to see long-overdue institutional reforms at the FCC? What specifically should be done, if anything, to reorient the agency consistent with the dramatic marketplace and technological changes? What reforms can be implemented without congressional action? If congressional action is needed, are there measures short of a comprehensive overhaul of the Communications Act that should be enacted more quickly?

This Free State Foundation seminar will explore these questions – and more!

  

You may order FSF’s latest book, Communications Law and Policy in the Digital Age: The Next Five Years, from Amazon here, from Barnes & Noble here, or from Carolina Academic Press here

Lunch with Gary Johnson
  • Greetings Lover of Liberty!!

    The Our America Initiative is pleased to announce that our Honorary Chairman & 2012 Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson is returning to Washington for a special weekend of celebration and support for the message of economic liberty and personal freedom in a part of the country where very little of it exists.

    You are invited to join Gary to discuss the Our America Initiative – the ONLY national grassroots movement promoting both fiscal responsibility and social acceptance. From chairing state initiatives for “guns rights, equal marriage & pot legalization” as Michael Barone wrote about the majorities in favor of these personal rights, to running national PR campaigns against the scandals at the NSA, IRS and overseas interventions, OAI is redefining the liberty movement and taking advice from individuals like yourself on our next action.

    ACT NOW!!! FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE.

    Date: Friday, October 25, 2013
    Time: Noon-2 pm EDT
    Cost: $150 per person

Noon
Right now the NSA is spying on everyone’s personal communications, and they’re operating without any meaningful oversight. Since the Snowden leaks started, more than 571,000 people from all walks of life have signed the StopWatching.us petition telling the U.S. Congress that we want them to rein in the NSA.
On October 26th, the 12th anniversary of the signing of the US Patriot Act, we’re taking the next step and holding the largest rally yet against NSA surveillance. We’ll be handing the half-million petitions to Congress to remind them that they work for us — and we won’t tolerate mass surveillance any longer.

Who we are

StopWatching.us is a coalition of more than 100 public advocacy organizations and companies from across the political spectrum. We came together in June 2013 to demand the U.S. Congress investigate the full extent of the NSA’s spying programs. Go here to read our letter to U.S. Congress demanding accountability and reform.
Members of the StopWatching.us coalition include:

FixUpDC_LeeBeck_02

Where: US Capitol (West Lawn)
1st St SE, Washington, DC 20004

Show up This Saturday to Fix Up DC. Remember to bring garbage bags, rakes, and gloves. We’re going to clean up our capitol. Don’t bring signs. We’re here to work.

Why isn’t John Cornyn willing to do everything he can to save you from ObamaCare?

FreedomWorks

Why isn’t John Cornyn willing to do everything he can to save you from ObamaCare?

This week the Texas Senator gave Obama exactly what he wanted. Cornyn abandoned Mike Lee’s efforts to Defund ObamaCare.
First he was willing to do whatever it takes to stop Obamacare. Now he’s not.

Honestly, I’m surprised I’m sending this e-mail. Last week, Cornyn was standing with Senator Lee against ObamaCare. But now, after talking to Mitch McConnell, Cornyn backed down.
Has Cornyn become too comfortable in Washington D.C.? Why isn’t he willing to Stand with Senator Lee and fight for regular Americans?
Give John Cornyn a call and demand to know why he’s not standing with Mike Lee!
Obama’s health care takeover is a threat to the whole country. And John Cornyn will not do what it takes to End ObamaCare.
Bruce, we must find out why.

Defunding Obamacare

28 Jul

Senator Mike Lee on 2014 election

Coffee and donuts at FreedomWorks

27 Jul
For those in and around Washington DC,
 
We will be meeting in front of 400 N. Capitol St NW in Washington, DC tomorrow morning at 7:30am. Senator Lee will be arriving just before 8am for his Fox News Sunday hit.
FreedomWorks (which is located in the same building) is hosting a watch party with coffee and donuts and have kindly agreed to let us attend. Their doors will open at 8am. Senator Lee will be joining us at the watch party after his Fox News hit.

If you can be there in the morning it would be great for encouraging Senator Lee to keep pressing forward.

Tea Party Patriots is beginning to work on an effort to push the House and Senate to defund Obamacare by not voting for any CR that funds the law. There are a few Senators who have taken the lead on this issue, but Senator Mike Lee from Utah is making the best argument by saying that if they vote to fund it, they ultimately support the law.

Senator Lee is scheduled to be on Fox News Sunday and we want to give him some encouragement before he is on the show. So we’re trying to gauge how many people could potentially show up in DC in front of Fox News Studios with signs in support of Lee’s efforts. This would also be a good photo opp to use to put pressure on other Senators, and ultimately the House to follow suit.

 
Additional Information for Background:
*Note: We aren’t advocating for a government shut down. The Republicans have the ability to pass legislation that would fund the entire government with the exception of Obamacare, putting the ball in the court of the Democrats. The Democrats have already admitted implementation of the law is failing by calling it a “train wreck,” proposing that the employer mandate be delayed for a year, and delaying the establishment of exchanges in several states. Also, public opinion is on our side in this. Right now the biggest obstacle seems to be the Republican establishment.
