You’ve heard of the Senate’s top priority S1, the so-called “For the People Act” (better known as “The Corrupt Politicians Act”). This bill would dramatically damage election accuracy and integrity. In fact, the bill is so bad that Democrats can’t even agree on it- but that hasn’t stopped them from pushing this radical legislation.

With the realization that the Corrupt Politicians Act might not succeed, the Senate filed S 2093, which is S1 with a mustache – many of the same dangerous provisions in disguise. The Senate plans to vote on S 2093 TOMORROWPlease take a minute today to urge your senators to vote NO on S 2093!

After all the questioning of recent election results – Democrats in 2016 and Republicans in 2020 – the importance of election accuracy and integrity should be paramount to all Americans. Unfortunately, Democratic Leadership is determined to dramatically undermine those goals with S 2093.

S 2093 contains some of the WORST provisions of its predecessor including:

  1. Gutting State Voter ID Laws
    S 2093 guts state voter ID laws and allows individuals to vote without an ID. You may need an ID to board any plane, drive a car, purchase a cell phone, buy alcohol, and pick up MLB tickets. But under S 2093, individuals can vote without an ID to verify their identity.
  2. Encouraging Voter Fraud
    S 2093 allows unlimited ballot harvesting by political operatives, mandates unmonitored ballot drop boxes, and restricts states’ ability to remove inaccurate and duplicative registrations from voter rolls. This will significantly increase the chances of voter fraud in your state.
  3. Giving Taxpayer Funds to Political Campaigns
    S 2093 would give $6 of taxpayer funds to political campaigns for every $1 raised from small donors. This means your money could be funding candidates you disagree with. It also means your money could be used to attack candidates you want to support!
  4. Creating a Partisan Federal Elections Commission
    S 2093 gets rid of the bipartisan makeup of the Federal Election Commission (FEC), giving the party in power an advantage in seats and the ability to control the commission’s agenda. This means that even if you disagree with the goals of the party or people in power, they may be the ones to determine what happens in the election.

With this legislation, liberal forces in Congress are attempting to undermine the integrity of our elections – and the ability of each citizen to engage in the political process of their own government.

You can help protect the foundations of our nation by stopping this dangerous legislation! Click here to urge your senators to stand for election integrity by OPPOSING S 2093!

Jack Ciattarelli has won the Republican primary and will face Governor Phil Murphy this November. New Jersey voters will have the opportunity to uphold Governor Murphy’s radical abortion agenda and sexualization of public education, or pivot to a more popular and mainstream position regarding life in the womb and children in the classroom.

Jack has a track record in the legislature that concerns many conservatives. He voted for assisted suicide and has generally considered himself a pro-choice candidate in the past. However, the extreme anti-life platform of Governor Murphy gives a traditionally moderate republican a strong upper hand in protecting preborn babies.

“Phil Murphy’s eagerness to sign legislation that would permit abortions up to the time of birth shows how extreme and out of touch he is with the values of the vast majority of New Jerseyans in both parties. The debate over Roe v. Wade is one that evokes passion on both sides whereby reasonable people can disagree, but a law that would allow the abortion of full-term babies, outlaw parental notification for minors, and authorize non-licensed physicians to perform abortions is radical by any measure.”
Jack Ciattarelli
.

I have spoken to Jack on many occasions, including an hour-long conversation he had with pastors. He was clear in his objection to the social and sexual indoctrination happening in New Jersey public schools. He firmly believes these sensitive moral subjects should be left to parents, not activist teachers.

There are many months to go before the general election and a lot can happen. Please stay in prayer for our state, join us and other groups as we publicly gather to stop the so-called Reproductive Freedom Act, contact your legislators regarding their incessant erosion of parental rights, and speak out at your local board of education. We can not expect legislators to fight for our children if we do not first take a stand to protect them and the religious freedoms we cherish.

Do you remember the Heartbeat Bill? We are still fighting for that bill in the courts – this incredible legislation is the most pro-life bill in the country.

But, we were one vote away from the bill failing.

That means, had your representative at the time, Bert Reeves, been absent or flipped his vote from a Yes to a No, the Georgia General Assembly would have rejected the notion that preborn children with beating hearts should be protected.

This isn’t the only time a bill has been decided by one vote. SB 47, a key school choice bill this year, was also a 1 vote win for families.

That’s why this is so important!

You have a special election coming up in YOUR DISTRICT on June 15th (early voting has begun and continues through Friday), and we wanted to make sure you were planning to vote!

Early numbers indicate this will be a LOW turnout, CLOSE election. YOUR VOTE MATTERS!

There are 5 candidates running in this race. We have provided an informational graphic on where the candidates stand on some of the issues. We hope this will help you make an informed decision when you cast your vote.

Please review this information, do any additional research you feel is necessary, determine the best candidate that lines up with your values, and MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!

Please make a plan to vote on June 15th. The next big bill – one that has major policy implications for our state – could depend on it.

Because Your Vote Matters,

Cole Muzio

Primary Election Day is upon us tomorrow.

Here are the facts:

Jack Ciattarelli, Phil Rizzo, and Hirsh Singh would reign in the Department of Education and curtail the sexual and cultural indoctrination happening in our public schools. All three candidates have repeatedly expressed their objection regarding controversial curriculum such as transgender diversity lessons in kindergarten, the explicit and inappropriate new Sex Ed Learning Standards, and the Critical Theory found throughout the pilot lessons developed by Garden State Equality.

All three candidates would sign the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and work to defund Planned Parenthood. In addition, they have all been outspoken in their opposition to the so-called Reproductive Freedom Act.

God is not the author of confusion…
1 Corinthians 14:33

Deceptive mailers and social media postings that claim only one candidate is the “true conservative” and the only “pro-life” candidate are not true. If any candidate claims they will sign an Executive Order banning late term abortions, that is a false promise. Such restrictions would have to be passed by the legislature. I would suggest you view the rating card from our friends at NJ Right to Life. Both Phil Rizzo and Hirsh Singh received an “A”. Jack Ciattarelli received a “B”.

The dishonesty that has been on display for months has damaged the social conservative movement. Intentional lies and mischaracterizations of fellow conservative candidates as a baseless attempt to appeal to the anger and the frustration of the grassroots should not be rewarded. A positive unifying vision rooted in conservative principles has the best chance to move New Jersey forward in the right direction.

Protecting your family,

This coming Tuesday, June 8 is Primary Election Day here in New Jersey. Last week, we sent you an email highlighting the best and worst legislators during this legislative session based on the bills they sponsored. I want to strongly encourage you to go out and vote!

Politics is a tough sport. Even when competitors play by the rules, as in football or mixed marital arts, undoubtedly some will get hurt and injured. Politics at times might lead to slander, false accusations, and betrayal. As Christians, we should reject lies, not disseminate them. Sadly, I am reminded of a scripture that can easily be applied to our modern political moment.

These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren.
Proverbs 6:16-19

 

As the passage suggests, divisions in families and friendships might also occur due to intense political debate. The Old Testament scriptures record when familial ties were strained or broken because of leaders positioning themselves for power. King David, the royal incumbent, was challenged by his son Absalom. David’s friend and political consultant Ahithophel switched camps and sided with Absalom because of his sex scandal with Beersheba. In a separate struggle for the throne following David’s reign, his sons Solomon and Adonijah competed for volunteers and built alliances. In both situations, there were enthusiastic Israelites believing their nominee was the best one to defeat their nation’s enemies and protect their freedoms.

The lesson for us in New Jersey? Whatever the outcome is after next week’s primary, we must unite behind the gubernatorial candidate who will boldly protect parental rights and overhaul the New Jersey Department of Education to stop undermining the values of the families they have been hired to serve.

The sanctity of life is primary, but if the so-called Reproductive Freedom Act were to pass and be signed by Governor Murphy before his term is over, reversing course even with a new governor would be near impossible, as the bill prohibits any future administrations from making laws to protect children in the womb.  The fate of the unborn would be sealed for decades to come. We can not let that happen! Therefore, after you vote on Tuesday, June 8, please join us in Trenton on Wednesday, June 9 to rally against this immoral bill.

Protecting your family,

Shawn Hyland
Executive Director

In a debate that aired on Mother’s Day, Democrat congressional candidate Melanie Stansbury had the chance to ask one question of another candidate. She chose to ask Republican Mark Moores to explain why he voted against the radical abortion bill in this year’s legislature.

She had one shot to raise an issue – and her focus was protecting abortion up to the moment of birth.

The exchange in that debate says a lot about the candidates who are running and where they stand. It also says a lot about what’s at stake in the June 1 special election to fill former Rep. Deb Haaland’s 1st Congressional District seat. After all, Speaker Nancy Pelosi controls the U.S. House by the slimmest of margins.

Stansbury, currently a state representative, is known for her progressive positions, including abortion. In addition to voting for this year’s extreme abortion bill, she also voted to legalize assisted suicide and recreational pot.

Moores, currently a state senator, voted against all three of those bills. And when it came to answering Stansbury, he was crystal clear.

“First off, I am pro-life,” he said. “I am pro-life, because you know in New Mexico, we are the late-term abortion capital of the world. And you know, the first time I held my daughter in my arms … it was just moments after she was born. Under New Mexico law that you support, Melanie – just moments before I held her in my arms, she could have been killed. She wasn’t a blob of cells; she was a human being.

“I also oppose having taxpayers be forced to pay for abortions,” Moores added. “In New Mexico, you [Stansbury] have supported late-term abortions up to birth.”

Make Your Voice Heard: Vote

If you are registered to vote in the 1st Congressional District, you can impact this race with your vote. Reports indicate that early voting is down. That makes your vote even more impactful.

The District: The 1st Congressional includes most of Bernalillo County, all of Torrance County, and parts of Sandoval, Santa Fe and Valencia counties.

When: Now – Election Day is June 1, but early voting runs until May 29.

The top priorities of leadership in Congress can be indicated by low bill numbers. In fact, the lower the bill number, the higher priority. So, what is the #1 priority of Democrats in Congress? Taking partisan control of America’s elections.

The Senate’s top priority is S1, the so-called “For the People Act,” (better known as “The Corrupt Politicians Act”). The House recently passed their version of this bill, HR 1, and the Senate recently had a hearing on S1. That means that a vote on the Senate floor could be imminent. Please take a minute today to urge your senators to vote NO on S1!

After all the questioning of recent election results – Democrats in 2016 and Republicans in 2020 – the importance of election accuracy and integrity should be paramount to all Americans.  Unfortunately, Democrats are dramatically undermining that principle with S1.

So just how bad is this 800-page bill? Here are the Top Four Dangers of S1:

  1. S1 Bans State Voter ID Laws
    S1 bans state voter ID laws and allows individuals to vote without an ID. You may need an ID to board any plane, drive a car, purchase a cell phone, buy alcohol, and pick up MLB tickets. But under S1, individuals can vote without an ID to verify their identity.
  2. S1 Encourages Voter Fraud
    S1 prevents officials from verifying voter eligibility and imposes a criminal offense on officials who reject a voter registration application – even if the official believes the individual is ineligible to vote.
  3. S1 Promotes Double Voting
    S1 promotes the sending of absentee ballots without verification and prevents election officials from removing ineligible voters from voter rolls. This allows dangerous double voting scenarios.
  4. S1 Creates a Partisan Federal Elections Commission
    The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is currently composed of six commissioners, no more than three of whom may be affiliated with the same political party. S1 reduces the number to five members to create a partisan commission – assigning significant power to the FEC Chair, who is appointed by the President.

The Left is undermining the integrity of our elections – and the ability of each citizen to engage in the political process of their own government – with this legislation.

But you can help protect the foundations of our nation by stopping this dangerous legislation! Click here to urge your senators to stand for election integrity by OPPOSING S1!

First it was the Heartbeat Bill, then it was opening the economy, and now it’s protecting the vote – Georgia is taking the lead for the nation again, and the media is going absolutely insane.

On Thursday, Georgia became the first state to learn lessons from the 2020 election and pass election reform – the top priority for the General Assembly this year.

We’d like to commend House and Senate leadership and Governor Kemp for their work on this, their refusal to allow this to become an 11th hour issue, and for signing the bill the same day it was passed. Georgia has taken a big step toward election integrity with SB 202, and our leaders wanted to leave no doubt that this was important to them.

But, the deranged media is in complete attack mode. They’re saying we’re racist, that we want to keep people from voting, and that we’re trying to disenfranchise minorities. Pretend-governor Stacey Abrams even compared this reform effort to Jim Crow laws.

Let me be abundantly clear: the outlandish and inflammatory rhetoric and comparisons surrounding this legislation and the insinuation that this bill targets minorities is wrong, disingenuous, a form of voter suppression, and, in fact, racist on its face.

Here’s what SB 202 does:

Is anything on that list racist? Discriminatory? Keeping eligible voters from voting? Differentiating people by color or any other group? Any answer to these questions that is not an absolute and resounding NO is either deceitful or demeaning to those you’re asserting cannot comply with these security measures.

Governor Kemp was clear in his remarks: Georgia won’t put up with these lies. You can watch his remarks on this bill. He gets combative with the radical, anti-integrity left around the 4:35 mark.

Of note, Governor Kemp declared the DC-proposed HR 1 an “unconstitutional power grab” and one that he would draw a line in the sand over. “No, not in Georgia,” he said. Should that fight come, we expect our Georgia leaders to hold the line and deny the Biden-Harris-Schumer-Pelosi Axis of Radicalism access to determining our Georgia laws.

We promised you that we would support and pass election reform. That promise has been kept.

However, the work in defending it has only begun. As Governor Kemp was making his remarks, one legislator pulled a publicity stunt, and, after antagonizing Capitol police for not-the-first-time, she was arrested. The media is now absolutely unhinged in their coverage of this. Stacey Abrams is making comparisons of this bill to Jim Crow laws. And, the White House is condemning our reform efforts.

Election integrity will very much be on the ballot in 2022 – if we cannot keep a conservative majority. That’s what we’re committed to preserving.

We’re grateful for your thoughts, prayers, and support. We have much left to do, but we are grateful for this victory.

Proud of Georgia,

Cole Muzio
President and Executive Director

 

 

PS. There are now two legislative days left, and we have MUCH left to do. With election reform now passed, we are working to achieve big things for the cause of life, families, religious freedom, and educational opportunity. To help us achieve this legislative agenda, please help us reach our End of March goal of $2,325 with a contribution here at whatever level you feel God calling you to.

Legislative Day 35 is in the books, and, when the General Assembly gavels in on Monday, there will be 5 remaining days. Those five days are going to be long, arduous, and full of activity.

We’ll keep you updated along the way, but, today, I want to give everyone a brief answer to the question I get asked most: “So, what is going on with the election bills?”

First, let me stake out what, I think, is a series of consensus statements:

Second, let me tell you where we are in reaction to this:

Third, let me tell you what we’re encouraging on these bills. We support efforts to:

These measures and others, I believe, will take significant step toward restoring confidence and eliminating avenues for cheating.

So, what needs to happen between now and then:

I hope this was helpful. We’re working on a lot of issues to advance our values, and we’ll keep you updated on those. But, I wanted you to share what’s going on regarding an issue that is imperative to ensuring we have the ability to elect those who advance our values.

For Integrity,

Cole Muzio
President and Executive Director

PS. We have more-than-doubled our investment in our policy efforts this legislative cycle. I believe the results are there. To help us with these costs, consider supporting our legislative efforts with a $25, $100, $250, or greater donation to help our team reach the finish line this session.
