More Thanksgiving coming at you!

As the federal government gobbles down more budgets than turkey this Thanksgiving, it can be difficult for taxpayers to find solace in the face of large government spending.
That is why we would like to thank our members who have done all they can to keep the federal feast a modest one. Through your donations, actions, e-mails, phone calls, and support, we have been able to shine a light on proposal costs, stymie the advance of internet taxes, and reduce the enormous salaries of those working at Fannie and Freddie.
This Thanksgiving, we would like to extend our gratitude to you, the taxpayer advocate, who gives us the cause to fight for and the support to be an effective organization. As you meet with family and friends throughout the season, we ask that you continue to educate others on the perils we face and encourage them to take action on the issues that are important to us all.
Though we face an uphill climb to tackle government spending, we are encouraged  we have such great support from our membership. Thank you for your support.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Being Thankful for the Left

Sultan Knish: Being Thankful for the Left

Thursday, November 26, 2015

Another Thanksgiving message....

I just wanted to say thank you. I know that this organization and this movement would not be possible without you. From the bottom of all our hearts, thank you so much! And here's a special Thanksgiving message from our FreedomWorks family to yours.

This Thanksgiving, we've got so much to be thankful for. With your help we've removed John Boehner from the Speaker's chair and from Congress. We've made New Mexico's governor stand up for its citizens' property rights. We've helped end Obama's crony Ex-Im Bank. And we've helped promote and defend the House Freedom Caucus from the DC insiders.


These are not small accomplishments. Your sacrifices made everything we did this year possible. And on this Thanksgiving, we're taking time to make sure each and every one of our 6.9 million activists knows how much we appreciate them. It's because of you that we're able to makefreedom work each and every day.

Bruce, thanks again. Enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend!

Adam Brandon
President & CEO, FreedomWorks

Policing in America
9 am - 5 pm

Cato Institute
1000 Massachusetts Avenue NW

The highly publicized officer-involved killings of Tamir Rice, Walter Scott, Freddie Gray, and others have prompted renewed discussions about American law enforcement. Police departments face increasing criticism from protesters, the media, and the federal government. President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing published its recommendations earlier this year, but what do they mean for officers and the communities they patrol? Is sweeping reform necessary? With approximately 18,000 police agencies operating in the United States, is such reform even possible?

American policing is changing. Emerging technologies provide new methods both for police accountability and surveillance capabilities. Law enforcement scholars and practitioners continue to develop innovative strategies to address crime and disorder. In many cities, police agencies are wrestling with how to increase public safety while respecting the dignity of individuals, particularly in minority communities.

At this day-long conference on Policing in America, an array of law enforcement experts will explore minority perspectives on community policing; police accountability; the costs and benefits of emerging police technologies; and more!


If you can’t make it to the event, you can watch it live online at and join the conversation on Twitter using #PolicingUS. Follow @CatoEvents on Twitter to get future event updates, live streams, and videos from the Cato Institute.

The Star Wars franchise has inspired generations of science-fiction fans, numerous spin-offs, both good and terrible fan fiction, and even legislation in Congress.

With the next installment of the space opera set to be released in December, there are some important questions we must examine: Is the Empire actually a force for good? Are the Jedi a dangerous religious cult? Was the Republic doomed to failure? Is Han Solo an anarcho-capitalist? What does the series tell us about trade disputes? How would U.S. copyright law apply to lightsabers? How does Star Trek's vision of futuristic utopian socialism compare with Star Wars' setting "a long time in a galaxy far, far away"?

Our panel of experts will answer these questions and more with a deep discussion of the political philosophy of Star Wars and other contemporary science fiction. Reception to follow.
