We're hearing many states are still struggling to staff poll workers for the upcoming elections. One of the most important things we can do to defend free and fair voting is to get involved and be present when and where votes are cast.
The Biden Administration apparently believes it's fine to dismiss 13 percent of our National Guard and 12 percent of Reserve soldiers over their forced, and unnecessary, vaccination mandate. Judging by other actions by the same administration, they don't see national security as much of a priority.
We've been fighting for religious liberty and the freedom to worship since our founding. It's our first and arguably, most precious natural right.
I'm pleased to announce Jonathan Dobbs has joined the ACRU as Project Director for the Committee to Support and Defend.

Although the concept of constitutional self-governance was the political underpinning that made our country great, its primary mechanism of free and fair elections is quite simple.

Maskless Middle School Student Placed in Solitary Confinement Enlists American Constitutional Rights Union to Fight Back
Young Isabella Koons was placed in solitary confinement every school day for a week after exercising her right to adhere to Virginia Governor Youngkin’s Executive Order Number Two, allowing students to attend school without wearing masks. Loudon County District officials suspended Isabella when she and her parents were not sufficiently intimidated out of exercising their rights, as expressed in Governor Youngkin’s Order. The suspension is for an indefinite period, to be lifted only once Isabella agrees to wear a mask in school. The School District has threatened that if Isabella is found on any property belonging to the Loudoun County School District (i.e., the taxpayers of Loudoun County), she will be arrested and charged criminally with trespassing.
On the heels of a Virginia Governor Youngkin’s Executive Order Number Two (2022), the Loudoun County School District continues to defy state law by disciplining students choosing to refuse an illegal, school-imposed mask mandate.
In the late 1960s, my oldest brother brought our entire family to the attention of the FBI. He ran an underground newspaper in Flint, Michigan, that questioned authority and advocated for legalizing Marijuana and ending the Vietnam War. Unlike some radicals of the time, my brother was a veteran who loved America and shunned communism. But exercising free speech and questioning authority can bring trouble. As a little girl I was aware that my big brother was under scrutiny for criticism of government officials. My parents may not have agreed with all of his views, but they didn’t shield me from them.
We, a former advisor to President Bill Clinton’s campaign and a former member of the George W. Bush Administration, may not agree on many public policy issues. Figuratively speaking, we wear different colored hats. But we have joined together to sound the alarm against censorship.
