End Court Packing Threat

Support Keep Nine Constitutional Amendment

Fairfax, Va. – Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following statement in support of a constitutional amendment to protect the U.S. Supreme Court from a court packing threat from Democrats.

“Congressional Democrats have promised to pack the Supreme Court if they take control and Joe Biden’s fraud-ridden election stands.  Senate stalwarts like Ted Cruz, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are leading the charge to end this threat by amending the U.S. Constitution to specify that the number of Supreme Court Justices will be nine, ending the court packing threat once and for all.

“While Washington, D.C. is roiled in political uncertainty, incoming Arizona state representative Jake Hoffman has taken the bull by the horns by introducing a resolution calling for Congress to pass this constitutional amendment.  Hoffman, a rising star in conservative, constitutional political circles has gotten the support of virtually every state representative and state senator, including the Speaker of the House, Senate President, House Majority Leader, Majority Whip, Speaker pro tem, Senate President pro tem, and Senate Majority Leader.

“Packing the Supreme Court is the exact kind of power play America can expect should Democrats take control of the Senate with Joe Biden in the White House. And on January 5, the state of Georgia will decide whether Chuck Schumer’s court packing dream will become a reality when they elect not one, but two U.S. Senators in a run-off election.  Americans for Limited Government stands firmly in favor of Georgia Senators Loeffler and Perdue’s re-election and urges Congress to have the courage to vote for the rightfully elected Trump slates.

“Incoming Arizona state House member Jake Hoffman has courageously led the way in this fundamental battle to preserve an independent judicial branch of government.  It is time for other state legislators around the country to introduce and bring forward the same resolutions through their capitols, so Congress can see that America is demanding that they end their threat to pack the Court.”

Congress Must Fight Election Fraud

January 6 will test integrity of GOP lawmakers

Fairfax, VA. – Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following statement regarding the January 6 electoral college vote certification by Congress.

“America needs to demand that Congress stand up to the election fraud which denied President Trump his earned victory on November 3rd by recognizing President Trump’s electors over the fraudulently certified votes for Biden.  January 6 is the day that this decision will be made, and it will be a test of the integrity of those who are elected to serve in Congress.  Some may think that things just go on as usual should GOP members of Congress fail to stand up against the fraud, but they won’t.

“Any GOP member who refuses to support the President’s rightful claim that the election was stolen in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Nevada, and Wisconsin, needs to ask themselves a simple question, ‘If you won’t fight for election integrity in a presidential election where the steal was in plain sight, why would anyone fight for you when your next election is stolen on a much smaller stage?’  The answer is, they won’t.  Democrats won’t care if you vote with them to give them control of the White House, they will still steal your seat if allowed to get away with a theft that would make notorious bank robber Willie Sutton blush.  Once you kneel to those who believe that ballot box stuffing, multiple voting, and even machine vote switching is legitimate electioneering, the very concept of free and fair elections is dead, and when you ask for the people’s vote in the future, they will ask, ‘Why bother?  Why should I go out and fight the cancel culture for your dreams and ambitions, since they don’t include making certain that the one-person-one-vote rule of law is upheld.’

“For GOP House and Senate members, the election theft Rubicon has been crossed by the extreme Left. The laws of states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, and Wisconsin were not just ignored but were effectively overturned by state officials without legislative assent.  If the state election laws don’t matter during election time, then Congress cannot accept those results as legitimate, particularly when there is evidence well beyond any legal threshold to know that a multi-state vote tampering scheme was used, and Congress is all that stands between its success or failure.

“It is hard to be courageous in the face of the physical and psychological intimidation each GOP member is facing from the mobs in the street and the mobs of the social media companies.  But these elected officials asked for the job, now they must do their constitutional duty.  They took an oath and must now follow it by recognizing the Trump electors on January 6.”

Santa Claus government must end, no more checks

Dec. 28, 2020 Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging Congress to reject any additional checks for American households after President Donald Trump signed Covid relief legislation providing $2,400 to an average family of four:

“While our nation has faced a unique set of circumstances due to the Chinese virus and the impact on our economy, it is time for the federal government to stop playing Santa Claus with money that we don’t have. The average family of four has already received $3,400 under the CARES Act, and now under the just-signed Covid relief bill they’ll receive an additional $2,400 — a combined $5,800 in direct payments this calendar year alone. In the future it may be necessary to support industries and small businesses that continue to be negatively impacted by state government economic lockdowns, however the impulse to send everybody another check whether for $2,000 or any other amount should be resisted the same way that taking another hit on a highly addictive drug should be. It may feel good when you do it, but it’s bad for you and everyone knows it. With the vaccine being distributed, the federal and state governments need to be planning reopening strategies, and any additional stimulus should be directed to ensuring that people get back to work, rather than bailing out governments or pretending there’s a money tree sitting outside the Capitol.”

Acting AG Rosen must rein in rogue U.S. Attorneys in opioid case

Dec. 22, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement blasting the Justice Department for filing a lawsuit against Walmart over the prescription of opioids by licensed doctors:

“Today rogue career Justice Department employees filed a lawsuit against Walmart based upon their failure to follow legal theories that have been presented in DEA Power Point presentations related to the sale of opioids to the public. President Trump made it clear over a year ago to agencies that guidance letters and other non-formal legal renderings needed to be consolidated into actual rules and regulations that everyone could know, follow and challenge. Rather than engaging in this basic following of the Administrative Procedures Act, DOJ is attempting to have courts write laws that they would never be able to sustain if subjected to scrutiny.

“The opioid crisis is real. But pharmacies like Walmart are trapped between patient lobbies and state laws that insist that legal doctor prescriptions be filled and the U.S. Department of Justice attorneys more intent on getting a big score than on legitimately solving the problem. Ultimately, laws in this country are not made by social media people creating Power Points. There is a process, the Justice Department failed to follow it and in doing so, failed to follow a direct Executive Order by President Trump demanding they end the practice of making laws through what are essentially private letters and press releases. Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen needs to make it a top priority on Dec. 23 to enforce the Trump executive order and end this prosecutorial abuse by his attorneys. Americans are sick of a rogue Justice Department breaking laws to suit their own purposes and I for one am glad that Walmart is standing up for the rule of law rather than the rule of D.C. bureaucrats.”

ALG praises Senate GOP for fiscal restraint in difficult times

Dec. 18, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising Senate Republicans for the holding line on spending in the phase four Covid economic relief legislation:

“Senate Republicans have done their job during the most recent phase four economic relief spendathon by holding the line against poorly run state government bailouts, adding dollars to protect small businesses and working families who are struggling through no fault of their own, and resisting Nancy Pelosi’s $3 trillion spending siren song.

“It feels odd to be praising a spending bill that still will consume as much as a third of all the revenues collected in fiscal year 2020 as having restraint, but in today’s Washington, D.C. where a trillion dollars seems to have no weight or relevance in the overall discussion, Senate Republicans have done what was necessary to support the U.S. economy and the American people during Covid, while avoiding multiple trillion-dollar mistakes.

“It is likely that Covid spending will be revisited in the spring of 2021 no matter who is the president. And if those governors who keep crying about the self-inflicted loss of revenues want assistance, their economies will be open, and that assistance should rightly be given to the businesses that are creating the jobs necessary to recover from this pandemic, and not to the public employee union members who get paid not to work.”

Trump electors submitted in PA, GA, AZ and NV in wake of massive voter fraud

Dec. 14, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to the submission of electors for President Donald Trump in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona and Nevada:

“The decision by Trump electors and state legislatures in the contested states Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona and Nevada to file alternate electors in opposition to the fraudulent certification of votes in the presidential election is an important step towards reconciling the election results with the legal votes actually cast. As more and more fraud is unearthed, particularly in the wake of the court-ordered audit of Dominion voting systems by Allied Security Operations Group in Antrim County, Michigan, which found that the maligned voting devices were essentially set up to enable vote switching, it is clear that there is much more to learn on the big election steal of 2020. Stay tuned, the election correction is still underway.”

Trump does it again, peace breaks out between Israel and neighbors

Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising President Donald Trump and his administration for achieving a fourth peace agreement with Israel, this time with Morocco, effectively normalizing relations between the two countries:

“Donald Trump continues to prove to be the greatest peace President in modern American history, as he has just announced a fourth peace deal between Israel and Morocco. The prior peace and normalization agreements with United Arab Emirates, Sudan and Bahrain and Israel set the stage for the opportunity of a generation to put finally the Middle East at peace. Of course, this requires that whoever is President on Jan. 20, 2021 doesn’t fumble the ball by throwing the United States back into the arms of the Ayatollahs in Iran.

“It is incumbent upon Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who has a long history of supporting Israel, to demand that a potential Biden administration move forward with a winning peace process rather than gazing back longingly to their failed policies of the past. No matter the outcome of various election disputes, today’s announcement demonstrates that Donald Trump continues to be the most consequential President this century. It would be a shame if his peace legacy was abandoned by a China-bowing Biden stuck in the 1990s foreign policy establishment construct.”

Texas Challenges Presidential Election Results in U.S. Supreme Court

ALG Urges State Attorneys General to Join Legal Challenge

Fairfax, Va. – The State of Texas has filed a lawsuit directly with the U.S. Supreme Court challenging the election procedures in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin on the grounds they violate the Constitution. Texas is asking the Supreme Court to order the states to allow their legislatures to appoint their electors.

The Texas lawsuit makes these three arguments:

  • the states violated the Electors Clause of the Constitution because they made changes to voting rules and procedures through the courts or through executive actions, but not through the state legislatures;
  • there were differences in voting rules and procedures in different counties within the states, violating the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause;
  • there were “voting irregularities” in these states as a result of the above actions.

Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning is urging state attorneys general to join the lawsuit or file a friend-of-the-court brief in support of the challenge.

“There is clear and compelling evidence the states targeted in this lawsuit violated the Constitution,” said Manning. “These states used the Covid pandemic to justify ignoring state absentee and mail-in voting laws. In flooding their states with millions of absentee ballot applications and ballots, statutory controls went out the window.

“For the sake of not only this election, but all future elections, I urge state attorneys general to support this lawsuit. If Americans don’t trust the result of this election, how can they trust the result of any future elections? Our republic is at stake.”

Texas approached the Supreme Court directly because Article III provides that it is the court of first impression on subjects where it has original jurisdiction, such as disputes between two or more states.

Texas lawsuit challenging 2020 election results

ALG Releases New Ad as Congress Tries to Defund Doctors

“Under a new surprise billing proposal, Democrats would actually cut resources for our frontline healthcare workers”

Fairfax, Va. – Today, Americans for Limited Government announced a new cable TV ad buy urging Congress to reject a dangerous government rate-setting proposal that would defund frontline doctors in the midst of the deadly COVID-19 pandemic. Big health insurance companies and their allies in Congress are taking advantage of a massive end-of-year spending package to force price controls into healthcare. If passed, the proposal will devastate rural healthcare providers by leading to doctor shortages and hospital closures.

“Congressional Democrats clearly haven’t learned their lesson from the 2020 election,” said Americans for Limited Government President Richard Manning. “Defunding those who protect us from harm is not only dangerous policy, the political ramifications are serious as well. Congress should address surprise medical billing, but massive pay cuts for our doctors on the frontlines at the height of the pandemic is not a credible solution. Defunding our doctors would only result in harming patients and our healthcare system. It is absurd that Nancy Pelosi wants to punish the very healthcare providers who have been the true heroes of this pandemic. Her callousness knows no end.”

The ad, titled “Defund,” will run in the Washington D.C. market on Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC.
