Key Vote YES on Stopping the IRS Assault on Free Speech

As one of our millions of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your representative and ask that he or she vote YES on the Stop Targeting of Political Beliefs by the IRS Act, H.R. 3865. Sponsored by Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI), this bill would stop (for a year) the IRS from finalizing regulations which would stifle the free speech of c4 non-profit organizations.

Proposed IRS Rules Would Stifle Free Speech

As you may have heard, the IRS has proposed new rules that would severely restrict grassroots advocacy groups. Under current IRS rules, the purpose of tax-exempt 501(c)(4) organizations is educate the public and promote "social welfare" causes, and they can't work primarily as political campaign organizations. Many 501(c)(4) entities are small grassroots organizations ran by local activists that want to participate in the political process.

FreedomCast - Day Two of Government Shutdown, and WWII Vets Shut Out of Their Memorial

On today’s edition the FreedomCast, Dean Clancy joins me to discuss the government shutdown, how this one differs from the shutdowns of the 90’s, and the disgraceful actions of the White House barricading the open air WWII Memorial in order to punish political opponents.

Why is the Federal Government Trying to Define Journalism?

Earlier this summer, Senator Durbin made news when he introduced the Free Flow of Information Act or 'Shield Law'.  The bill's intention is to protect journalists from disclosing their confidential sources. A lesser known fact is that Senator Graham was a co-sponsor of this bill. Although it's a sad indicator that legislation like this is even being discusssed, the original bill appeared on the surface to be a legitimate attempt to provide protection for a journalist's sources.

First Amendment Under Attack in Illinois

Illinois, Illinois, Illinois. What has happened to you? How could the land of Lincoln stray so far from the principles of freedom? Every time we look, the state government is up to something shady. While the graft usually takes place in Chicago, today’s example comes from Bellevue, just outside of St. Louis.

Obama Bars College Republicans from Speech, Labels Them Security Threat

Whenever he talks about the economy, Obama sounds like he's trying to explain to a professor why his term paper is late.

The Other First Amendment Attack - Bible Studies

My Dad always told me everything is legal as long as you pay for it. Meaning of course, once you've paid for a permit you're exempt from laws those without a permit are bound to. Over the past few years, there have been numerous incidents of local governments harassing Bible study leaders who dare to host regular Bible studies in their homes.

Senator Durbin vs. The Constitution

US Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) is starting to realize that maybe, in the 21st century, bloggers and Twitter users deserve the same level of First Amendment protection as other journalists. Unfortunately, the definition of "journalist" the Senator prefers misses the mark, revealing in the process his desire to control the information received by the public.
