Senator Rand Paul praised for standing against ministry of truth

ALG urges the Senate to block the confirmation of Department of Homeland Security Undersecretary nominee Kenneth Wainstein

May 3, 2022, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging all senators to join Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) in blocking the confirmation of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Undersecretary nominee Kenneth Wainstein:

“Senator Paul struck a blow for the First Amendment today when he blocked the confirmation of DHS Undersecretary nominee Kenneth Wainstein. The revelation that the Department has set up a Disinformation Governance Board prompted Senator Paul to use his power to put a hold on the Wainstein nomination. Every Senator who is concerned about the federal government establishing a ministry of truth should join Senator Paul in his effort to stop this unconscionable abuse of power.

ALG urges senators to ‘oppose tyranny’ & defund vaccine mandates

‘The livelihoods and personal freedoms of millions of Americans are at stake’

Fairfax, Va. – Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah), Ted Cruz (R-Texas) Rand Paul (R-Tenn.), Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.), Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), and Mike Braun (R-Ind.) have announced they will not consent to a time agreement that eases passage of the Continuing Resolution (“CR”)  without an agreement to allow for a roll call vote on an amendment to defund Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandates.

Americans for Limited Government (ALG) President Richard Manning issued the following statement in support of the senators efforts:

“This is big news. I have no doubt that the 23 million emails received in the Senate and House of Representatives through Americans for Limited Government’s campaign played a part in this.

“Americans for Limited Government strongly urges every senator to vote to defund the vaccine mandates.  Democrat governors across the country are joining their Republican counterparts in ending the shutdowns and mandates.  It would be obscene for the federal government to continue pressing for American workers, soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, health care workers, emergency and first responders along with federal government workers and contractors to lose their jobs at a time when the CDC has found that natural immunity offers better protection against the Delta variant of COVID than two vaccinations.

“It is time for Republicans, Democrats and Independents to come together and end this dismal chapter in our nation’s history by defunding unconstitutional vaccine mandates at a time when the federal government should be encouraging Americans to get back to work, instead of forcing them to be thrown out of their careers and livelihoods.”

Note: The six senators have sent a Dear Colleague Letter to every senator inviting them to “stand with us and oppose the CR until it explicitly defunds the implementation and enforcement of these mandates…we need to take a vote on this before funding their enforcement. The livelihoods and personal freedoms of millions of Americans are at stake.”
