January 13, 2021 Chancellor Ronnie Green Office of the Chancellor University of Nebraska-Lincoln 1400 R Street Lincoln, NE 68588 Re: Enhanced COVID Safety Measures for Spring 2021 Dear Chancellor Green: I am writing on behalf of American Constitutional Rights Union (ACRU) in conjunction with Students for Liberty, which has an organized student chapter on your campus and on campuses around the world. ACRU is an organization committed to defending the constitutional rights of every American, including students. As you are aware, as a public institution, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is obligated to act within the confines of the Constitution and protect the rights of every one of [...]
ACRU recently defended an Anne Arundel, MD pastor fined by the health department for not wearing a mask in an empty building. Now a local judge is questioning county officials about their desire to put local restaurants out of business. Restaurants have paid lobbyists and lawyers; churches don't. We hope local courts will take notice of their loss of liberty as well, soon, even without the paid influence.
As crisis tyrants continue to target churches, and liberals call peaceful protestors “treasonous,” where should we stand on civil disobedience? This article by our friend Larry Reed at FEE is just as relevant now as it was when he wrote it in May — in fact, more so. If our liberty comes from our Creator, and therefore cannot be abridged by man, then where better to start with peaceful civil disobedience than in defense of religious liberty?
My goal today is, first, to present the facts about how deadly COVID-19 actually is; second, to present the facts about who is at risk from COVID; third, to present some facts about how deadly the widespread lockdowns have been; and fourth, to recommend a shift in public policy.

The Center for Tech and Civic Life is a leftist group claiming to use technology to “modernize” voting. Funded by liberal companies and run by self-identified progressive and Obama-affiliated staff, it is insinuating itself into elections. CTCL just gave Dallas County election administrator Toni Pippins-Poole $15 million for “voting operations” after Gov. Abbott wisely halted the liberal push for unsolicited mail-only ballots. Coincidentally, Ms. Pippins-Poole is also a CTCL advisor.
Un-masked Mom fully distanced with her own family in bleachers. Bullying cop pulls her up and tases her for not wearing a mask. No matter what your position on masks, this is a DISGRACE and another example of Crisis Tyrants in action.
The liberal governor of Nevada unilaterally decided casinos could hold thousands of people and churches (regardless of capacity) could only have 50. Liberal Supreme Court justices and Chief Justice Roberts threw religious freedom under the bus by agreeing. But a group of worshipers found a workaround to exercise their Constitutional rights. Perfect. Brilliant.
An un-Constitutional and absurd ruling from the Supreme Court last week decided a Nevada church had to adhere to arbitrary and biased COVID guidelines from its liberal governor. Democrat Governor Sisolak is allowing hundreds of people into bars and casinos but only 50 souls per church without even considering church size. Casting the First Amendment to the wind, liberal justices were joined by Justice Roberts in pretending our first freedoms are less important than cocktails and Blackjack.
A leftist coalition and leftist former officials are asking the federal government for “security” funds for states advocating for mail-only elections. NO! But their request does identify important points. 1. The left is admitting there’s a problem. 2. What is stopping global bad actors from mailing perfect ballot facsimiles to American addresses? China counterfeits everything else - why not ballots?
