Help Joni Ernst win the Iowa Senate Race and take back the Majority!

Building a strong CONSERVATIVE Senate is very important for our country!

LLPH is excited to report that a new poll by USA Today shows our endorsed candidate Joni Ernst leading liberal Bruce Braley in the Iowa Senate Race. Joni Ernst has been promoting a strong conservative message of fiscal responsibility and defending the Constitution. She has been endorsed by the Senate Conservatives Fund, Governor Sarah Palin, Senator Ted Cruz, and other conservatives.

A new USA Today/Suffolk University poll in Iowa finds Joni Ernst (R) leading Bruce Braley (R) in the U.S. Senate race, 47% to 43% among likely voters.

She would make an excellent addition to our strong conservative batch of senators. Help her today: http://www.joniforiowa.com/

#LLPH Endorsed #NH02 Marilinda Garcia Featured on Conservative HQ! #TCOT #Liberty

Marilinda Garcia

Marilinda Garcia

Marilinda Garcia is one of LLPH’s favorite candidates this election cycle, earning her a spot in Project Tiger (our top candidate endorsements). She is campaigning as a conservative who is ready to shake up the GOP Establishment.

Here is what our friends at Conservative HQ wrote about her:

Garcia is, on paper at least, the Republican establishment’s ideal candidate for Congress. Young, attractive, with a Hispanic surname and a degree from Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, she has served as a New Hampshire state representative since 2007. She also plays and teaches the harp, and, at 31, Marilinda Garcia is one of the youngest Congressional candidates in the country.

But paper is pretty much the only place where Marilinda Garcia and the GOP establishment cross paths because she is campaigning as a conservative, not as a “more of the same” establishment Republican.

Garcia says that taxpayer distrust in government has led to a need for a “new generation of conservative leaders to challenge the status quo” and this conservative message now has her running ahead of the Democratic incumbent, the truly scary Ann McLane Kuster.

Strangely, despite the fact that she is such an attractive candidate, while the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has just dumped almost $1 million into Kuster’s campaign. the NRCC hasn’t spent a dime on Garcia.

She is, as Club for Growth Action noted, a fierce opponent of big government. As a state legislator, Garcia voted to cut taxes and never voted for a budget that increased spending. She even voted against a regional Cap-and-Trade scheme that her opponent supported. In Garcia, conservatives have a principled candidate who they can trust.

#LLPH Key Vote Alert: “NO” on Weapons for Syrian Rebels Amendment & “NO” on Continuing Resolution FY 2015 (H.J.Res.124)! #TCOT

LLPH urges all members of the House of Representatives and the Senate to vote NO on giving weapons to Syrian rebels in any form of an amendment or legislation. The House is expected to vote on the amendment today, and LLPH will include the vote on the amendment in our scorecard. There are differing reports on the extent to which the Syrian rebels have made a truce with ISIS, but with so many different reports, giving them weapons and training is a terrible idea.

We also strongly oppose the Continuing Resolution for FY 2015 because it  includes a renewal of the Export-Import Bank, kicks funding only until December 2014 (which means that a lame duck congress will decide extending funds), and could possibly include the Syria/ISIS Amendment.

We will score both votes in our scorecard and urge a STRONG NO vote!

#House #Conservatives Stand Strong Against #GOP #Establishment #SyriaRebels Amendment!

The GOP Establishment and their kronies are leading the fight to give President Obama his $500 million for weapons and training for Syrian Rebels. These are the same big government types who think that money can solve everything, that we should be the world police, and that we should give the President whatever he wants.

It’s no surprise that GOP Establishment figures like Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn stated,

“I do have questions about how the different rebel groups will be vetted. That said, I will support the authority and the money to equip the troops.”

And this is the man who wants to be the Senate Majority Whip?

Thankfully, the past two election cycles have brought fresh conservative voices who are making a difference in Washington D.C. They are demanding the the GOP establishment return to the roots of the Republican Party and stop trying to be just “less bad” than the Democrats.

Roll Call reported:

As for how many Republicans will oppose the Syria amendment, no one seems to know. Rep. Walter B. Jones, R-N.C., predicted that only 10 to 15 Republicans would vote no. Rep. John Fleming, R-La., said he thinks there would be more than 20. Both predictions appear to be conservative projections from two members who are opposed to the amendment themselves.

At the Tuesday morning conference meeting, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, handed out a nine-page document, titled “Our ‘Vetted Moderate’ Syrian Rebel Allies,” which outlined various concerns with arming the Syrian rebels.

Georgia Republican Austin Scott told CQ Roll Call Tuesday morning that if the Syria amendment is attached to the CR, he’d be voting against the spending bill. “Every time the United States has gotten into a war, it has started with something like this,” Scott said.

Many other Republicans have expressed to CQ Roll Call their opposition to the Syria amendment over the last two days. Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., said he is concerned the Obama administration’s proposal was more about arming opponents of Syrian President Bashar Assad than it was about defeating ISIL.

Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., said members voting for the amendment were “tacitly” voting to authorize war in Syria. And Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., said while it isn’t clear what arming Syrian rebels would do, it is clear that it wouldn’t be enough to defeat ISIL.

GOP leadership, meanwhile, doesn’t seem worried about the vote. When Rep. Matt Salmon spoke over the phone with Majority Whip Steve Scalise to express opposition to the Syria amendment, Scalise didn’t try to twist the Arizona Republican’s arm. Instead, the Louisiana Republican told Salmon to go to the House floor and speak his mind.

“They’re not lobbying very intensely for us,” Salmon said.

These members are standing strong against the Republican Establishment. Jam the phone lines and urge your members to vote NO on the Syria Amendment and NO on the Continuing Resolution that extends the life of the Export-Import Bank!

#LLPH: Dan Sullivan for Alaska Senator #AKSEN

dan sullivan for senate

LLPH is proud to recommend Dan Sullivan to be the next senator from Alaska. This Tuesday, he will face a primary, and we need him to win. He is a strong conservative who can beat the incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Begich. Senator Begich has a score of 1% with LLPH, representing his strong liberal record.

Senator Begich likes to pretend to be a moderate, but what kind of moderate is he? A strong supporter of Obamacare, being one of those to vote yes on its passage. A moderate who voted for every spending increase and new agency that has been proposed. He is happy to send more money overseas while our debt continues increasing. He has consistently supported radical liberal judicial nominees. It is time to defeat him this November.

Dan Sullivan has been endorsed by our friends at the Club for Growth. They state,

In 2009 then-Governor Sarah Palin appointed Dan to be Alaska’s Attorney General. After a year and a half, current Governor Sean Parnell appointed Dan as Alaska’s Chairman of the Department of Natural Resources. Dan wrote Alaska’s challenge to ObamaCare and stood up to the onerous collusion between environmental groups and the Obama Administration on behalf of Alaska. In addition, Dan spearheaded a successful effort to get Alaska’s Legislature to repeal publicly popular anti-growth taxes on the cruise ship and oil and gas industries.

Former Governor Sarah Palin trusted him. Current Governor Sean Parnell trusted him. Alaskans can trust him to go to Washington D.C. and fight for fiscal sanity and a new, improved government. He will join leaders like Senators Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Tim Scott, Ted Cruz, and others in fighting for a better future for the next generation.

Here’s his website: http://www.sullivan2014.com/

Vote for him on Tuesday and let’s win in November!

#LLPH Recommends Candidate David Young for #IA03 General Election! #Liberty

Rand Paul and David Young iowa 3

Yesterday, Senator Rand Paul, a close friend of LLPH, endorsed David Young for Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District. David Young has served honorably as chief of staff for Iowa Senator Charles Grassley, a decent conservative senator. Today, LLPH is honored to join other conservative voices in supporting David Young for congress in what is expected to be a top race to watch this November.

David Young has concrete proposals on how to get the fiscal house in order in Washington D.C. and cut our debt.

David has proposed a set of Better Budget Principles rooted in Iowa common sense, which will put the United States on a path toward getting our fiscal house in order.

Balanced Budget Amendment – The concept here is simple: never spend more money than you have revenue. In Iowa, this concept is just common sense.

Zero Based Budgeting – this solution simply means that each year, the funding level for all government programs and agencies will begin at $0. This is a better budgeting practice than giving every program the same amount as last year, plus a raise.
Sunset Legislation – attaching a sunset clause to every law enacted by Congress means policies will no longer outlive their usefulness. When the sunset date arrives, Congress will examine the program anew and determine if it should continue for another finite period of time.

Full Federal Audit – the budget of every government department and agency should undergo a thorough outside audit to ensure taxpayer funds are being used in the most effective manner possible.

He will work to repeal Obamacare and replace it with free market solutions, cut regulations, and hold government accountable.

He agrees that every department has a certain amount of waste and that no department should be spared from review:

Well, you know, you can look at every agency, and that is what I would do, from the Defense Department, Department of Commerce, what have you, there’s plenty of waste, fraud, abuse and mismanagement in there. And so we need to really, we need to go after that. And we, certainly at this point we need to really freeze spending.
