  • Breaking: Lois Lerner Sued Christian Coalition In Largest FEC Action in History – Then Was Promoted

    05/22/2013 4:17:01 PM PDT · by hope · 159 replies
    Under the direction of Lois Lerner, the Federal Election Commission sued the Christian Coalition in the 1990s. She harassed the Christian Coalition for three election cycles. She lost her case. Lerner even asked one conservative during the case if Pat Robertson prayed over him. (Sound familiar?) These actions landed her at the IRS where she used the same tactics against conservatives and Christians – only on a much larger scale. 500 conservative and Christian groups were illegally targeted by the Obama IRS during her tenure. For twenty-seven months the Obama IRS refused to approve any Tea Party applications for tax-exempt...

    Between 1986 and 2001, Lerner served as head of investigations for the Federal Election Commission. From that post, Hemingway relates, she launched a lengthy, very expensive and ultimately fruitless investigation of the Christian Coalition...[A]ttorneys deposed Lt. Col. Oliver North, who had run for Senate in Virginia in 1994. Hemingway produces a stunning transcript of this deposition, in which the FEC's attorney ruthlessly interrogates North about an offhand remark he made in a letter, thanking Christian Broadcaster Pat Robertson for his "kind regards and prayers."

    Citizens For A Freer America ^ | 7/10/2012 | Daryl L. Hunter
    I live in a beautiful rural valley of 700 people in eastern Idaho and after I came to live here I found out that Utah isn't the only place that is fifty percent Mormon. As a compulsively inquisitive geo-political junkie I decided to look through the Book of Mormon so I could learn a little about the belief of my neighbors. As with any outsider looking into another's faith, I found many outlandish passages that would require faith to swallow, however, this is a characteristic that all religions share. What I have learned of my Mormon neighbors in the years...

    A New Grassroots Political Organization Makes Its Mark by Deal W. Hudson    11/06/09 The election results of November 2 were not merely the spontaneous reaction of Republicans to the bad economy and liberal excesses of the Obama administration. The four pro-life, conservative GOP candidates in Virginia and New Jersey were elected in a groundswell of religious and social conservatives, many of them independent voters who had voted for Obama only a year ago. A new grassroots organization played a major role in getting these voters to the polls -- the Faith & Freedom Coalition was founded by Ralph...
  • Net Neutrality -- Christian Coalition of America Position Statement

    Christian Coalition of America supports the continuation of the policies (known as "Net Neutrality") that have helped build and maintain a free, open and vibrant Internet. These policies have been in place since the beginning of the Internet and have ensured fairness for all people and points of view. "Net Neutrality" is an issue extremely important to America's grassroots organizations and to those Americans who want to ensure the cable and phone companies controlling access to the Internet will not discriminate based on content. If current "Net Neutrality" policies don't remain in effect, consumers could possibly have to pay additional...

    Campaign Against Obama Health Plan Run By Notorious Conservative PR FirmBy Elana Schor - March 3, 2009, 5:55PM A new group called Conservatives for Patients Rights (CPR) is about to launch the opening salvo in the fight to sink President Obama's health care plan. CPR is running TV, radio, and web ads that attempt to stoke irrational fears of "a central national board" in charge of medical decision-making, asking Americans to envision a world where "bureaucrats decide the treatments you receive, the drugs you take, even the doctors you see." Of course, that vision has nothing to do with the...

    San Fran Chron ^ | 2/29/2000 | Carolyn Lochhead
    On the eve of primaries in Virginia and Washington, Republican presidential candidate John McCain ripped into Christian televangelists Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell yesterday as ``agents of intolerance'' who ``shame our faith, our party and our country.'' The blistering broadside -- issued in Virginia Beach, near the Christian Coalition's headquarters -- was a first for any Republican presidential candidate and a daring assault on conventional wisdom that has long held that Christian conservatives are vital to the GOP base. As McCain courted the Republican moderates, independents and Democrats he hopes will support him in today's GOP primaries, his rival, Texas...

    CLIVE, Iowa - Republican Fred Thompson launched a low-key pitch to evangelical activists, a constituency his strategists said remains available despite months of intense courting by his rivals for the GOP presidential nomination in the state's leadoff precinct caucuses. "This is his natural constituency," said strategist Rich Galen, who pointed to some polls ranking Thompson as high as second in Iowa, though he was opening only his second campaign visit through the state since he joined the race earlier in the month. Thompson mingled with activists at the annual dinner of the Iowa Christian Alliance, patiently shaking hands with most...

    WASHINGTON - The president-elect of the Christian Coalition announced yesterday that he was stepping down, saying the religious group appeared to balk at his proposals to focus on environmental and anti-poverty issues rather than on purely "moralistic" issues such as abortion. The Rev. Joel C. Hunter, who was scheduled to take office Jan. 1, said his departure was sparked by "just a basic philosophical difference. ... I saw an opportunity to really broaden the conversation and broaden the constituency. I'm really over this whole polarization thing." "I think the board just got scared," added Hunter, senior pastor of a mega-church...

    The president-elect of the Christian Coalition of America has declined the job, saying the organization wouldn't let him expand its agenda beyond opposing abortion and gay marriage. The Rev. Joel Hunter, who was scheduled to take over the socially conservative group in January from Roberta Combs, said he had hoped to focus on issues such as poverty and the environment. "These are issues that Jesus would want us to care about," said Hunter, a senior pastor at Northland Church in Longwood, Fla. Hunter announced his decision not to take the job during an organization board meeting Nov. 21. A statement...

    Republican state Sen. Doug Lamborn's fiercest opponent in the 5th District race isn't his Democratic foe. It's the Republican he's trying to succeed -- 10-term Rep. Joel Hefley. Mr. Lamborn is running neck and neck with Democrat Jay Fawcett ... Shortly after Mr. Lamborn won a six-candidate primary on Aug. 8, Mr. Hefley, who is retiring, said he would refuse to endorse the Republican candidate, pointing to what he described as his "sleazy, dishonest campaign." That stinging rebuke, coming from the highly regarded Mr. Hefley, delivered a devastating blow to Mr. Lamborn's candidacy. Several other prominent Republicans soon joined Mr....

    Three disgruntled state affiliates have severed ties with the Christian Coalition of America, one of the nation's most powerful conservative groups during the 1990s but now buffeted by complaints over finances, leadership and its plans to veer into nontraditional policy areas. "It's a very sad day for our people, but a liberating day," said John Giles, president of the coalition's Alabama chapter, which announced Wednesday that it was renaming itself and splitting from the national organization. The Iowa and Ohio chapters took similar steps this year. Giles said he and his Alabama colleagues have "a dozen hard reasons" for the...

    The Republican base is being rejuvenated, some conservative activists say, by a flurry of congressional action on "values" issues such as marriage safeguards, flag protection and abortion restrictions, as well as President Bush's veto last week of stem-cell legislation. They warn against counteracting that progress with a comprehensive immigration bill that conservatives consider amnesty. Jim Backlin, vice president of legislative affairs at the Christian Coalition, said the spate of "values" votes "really, really helps rejuvenate our base -- especially Bush vetoing the stem-cell bill." In the past few months, Mr. Bush signed legislation against broadcast indecency, both chambers of Congress...
