This coming November we will have the opportunity to replace all the members of the House of Representatives and one third of the members of the Senate. We also know that the dominant party, the Democratic Party, will not be able to win this election in a fair contest. In addition, we know that Democrats have no intention of letting us have a fair contest.  That is why, for example, the House passed the Disclose Act today.

Here is what the Chicago Tribunes says about it.

On Thursday, Democrats muscled a bill through the U.S. House that they call the Disclose Act. The acronym stands for Democracy is Strengthened by Casting Light on Spending in Elections. Rah, rah for transparency!

It’s a fraud. (continued here)

This morning, the Washington Examiner spoke even more emphatically.

Congress is considering a censorship law to muzzle conservative groups, one that exempts pro-Democrat groups from its requirements, called the DISCLOSE Act. This blatant assault on the First Amendment is worse in some respects than McCain-Feingold, and should be a major focus during Elena Kagan’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings. (continued here)

Note the hypocrisy from the Democratic Party’s “campaign reform” advocates.

And by the way, labor unions are exempt from this law. Team Obama says, “We need disclosure!” Yet Team Obama’s storm troopers don’t need to disclose their activities, to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars annually.

At least BCRA applied to unions. It was unconstitutional, but at least it went after both sides. DISCLOSE, by contrast, mostly criminalizes speech from conservative groups, while leaving liberals unfettered. (from here)

The bill supposedly targets corporations.  The Washington Post explains how it works, blaming the NRA for this “defect.”

At the urging of the National Rifle Association, which holds huge sway in Congress, a group of conservative Democrats negotiated a change in the bill’s language that would exempt the NRA from its disclosure requirements. Under that deal, long-standing national groups that have more than 1 million members and receive 15 percent or less of their funding from corporations would not have to disclose top donors.

That angered some liberal lawmakers and gun-control supporters, particularly many members of the Congressional Black Caucus. The measure was pulled from the House schedule last week, and it was tweaked again to exempt a wider array of groups. (from here)

Yep! With the NRA as an excuse, Democrats “tweaked” the bill. What the Disclose Act does is target free speech and The United States Constitution. The First Amendment says:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

We must rally to defend our freedom. We must work to make certain the so-called Disclose Act does not get through the Senate. The Manassas Tea Party is staging a Defend The Constitution Rally on Friday, June 25th at 7:00PM. The event will be located at the Harris Pavilion in downtown Manassas, Virginia.  Be there!

So long as Democrats are doing it, Blue Virginia thinks stifling free speech is a “significant victory.” See Perriello: “We, the people” is not “We, the foreign corporations.”

United Conservatives of Virginia reports in two posts. The latest is NRA Board Member Speaks Out On Collusion With DhimmiRats. DISCLOSE-HR 5175 describes the content of the bill.
