Ron Paul Campaign Announces ‘Attorneys for Ron Paul’ Nationwide Coalition

Citing his fealty to the Constitution, legal experts supporting Dr. Paul hail from Texas, Indiana, Virginia and Montana 
LAKE JACKSON, Texas – The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential campaign announced today its “Attorneys for Ron Paul” nationwide coalition to energize voters in the legal profession.

Inaugural members of “Attorneys for Ron Paul” hail from Texas, Indiana, Virginia and Montana, and include two former Law School Deans, a former U.S. Air Force JAG officer, and a former Reagan Administration official.  These lawyers will serve on the coalition’s national advisory board to organize support for Ron Paul in the legal community.  Statements by each attorney as well as biographical information follow.

Other lawyers joining Attorneys for Ron Paul will be announced in the near future.

“Ron Paul is a man of great moral certainty, with a keen understanding of the complexities of the financial and political systems of the United States.  More importantly, he possesses a truly unique courage to not shirk from or compromise the U.S. Constitution as his unshakeable paradigm of government.  Of the many men and women to have sought this office in my lifetime, I am aware of none who has shown the depth of Dr. Paul’s knowledge of the American Constitution.  Nor have any demonstrated Dr. Paul’s God-given wisdom to understand and apply the Constitution to the almost countless issues that the leader of this republic must face.  He is a man who deeply loves his country and his people,” said J. Mark Brewer of Houston, Texas.

“As president, Ron Paul alone has the ability to provide the constancy to lead us through perilous times with honor.  At home, he would be guided by a reverence for individual rights and freedom from the economic tyranny of the Fed and its cabal of financial predators.  He would stand against the barrage of attacks of the last two decades against the Bill of Rights’ guarantee of the right to trial by jury in civil cases.  As a renowned physician, he would bring singular perspective to the politicization of healthcare and the ‘war on drugs’ as well as the ever-increasing federalization of public education.  Abroad, he would elevate respect for peace and civility over those erstwhile clamorers for war with their shameless profiteering and hidden agendas,” he added.

“I am deeply honored to endorse Ron Paul for president of the United States of America in 2012,” said Mr. Brewer, who has more than 27 years of law practice, including four as a Judge Advocate in the U.S. Air Force.  His trial experience includes more than 60 criminal and disciplinary jury trials in the Air Force and dozens of complex business litigation matters ranging from construction, insurance, surety, securities, fraud, product liability, deceptive trade practice, and professional malpractice.

Mr. Brewer also served as plaintiff’s counsel in the “Census Suit” – obtaining the only restraining order in U.S. history, enjoining criminal enforcement of the unconstitutional “long form” census questionnaire.

“Ron Paul aligns with principles that sustain social harmony and community.  They were clearly expressed by Edmund Burke and in our time by Russell Kirk.  These principles are also organizational in the sense that the Constitution of the United States and of the American states that long preceded the Federal Constitution came into existence because of them.  They are eternal and if contemporary lives vivify them in the functioning documents of government, such as the American constitutions, then civil harmony, economy, and peace naturally appear.  Ron Paul understands this,” said William F. Harvey of Indianapolis, Indiana.

Mr. Harvey is the Emeritus Dean and Emeritus Professor of Law at the Indiana University School of Law in Indianapolis, Indiana.  He is the author of 25 volumes published by West Publishing Company.  He taught law for 40 years, and he engaged in extensive trial and appellate practice in federal and Indiana state courts.  In the Reagan Administration he served as an advisor to the Secretary of Education on accreditation for schools and universities.  He was the chairman of and a member of the Board of Directors of the Legal Services Corporation.  In 1985, President Reagan selected him for appointment to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.  He was an officer in the United States Navy, serving on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific in Task Force 77 in Korea and Indochina.

“I devoted nearly three decades of my life to teaching constitutional law to law students, and almost another two decades in practicing constitutional law.  Rarely in that time have I found anyone — lawyer or laymen — who demonstrates the understanding that Ron Paul exhibits for the Constitution.  At critical times in America’s history, God has raised up men of wisdom and character to return the nation to First Principles.  Ron Paul is such a man.  It is a distinct honor to count myself among his supporters for President,” said Herbert W. Titus.

Mr. Titus holds the J.D. degree (cum laude) from Harvard and the B.S. degree in Political Science from the University of Oregon from which he graduated Phi Beta Kappa.  Previously, he taught constitutional law, common law, and other subjects for nearly 30 years at five different American Bar Association approved law schools.  From 1986 to 1993, he served as the founding Dean of the College of Law and Government in Regent University, Virginia Beach, Virginia.  Prior to his academic career, he served as a Trial Attorney and a Special Assistant United States Attorney with the United States Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. and Kansas City, Missouri.  Today he is engaged in private practice with a concentration in constitutional strategy, litigation, and appeals.
“For every American who truly believes in limited Constitutional government, and yearns to enjoy the freedom that it promises, the only path in 2012 is to support the one candidate who lives by that Constitution – Ron Paul.  Dr. Paul is running not because he wants to exercise the monarchical powers that prior presidents have usurped — but because he wants to return those powers to the people.  Dr. Paul is the only Republican candidate whose core principles radiate for all to see, and that’s why he is the only candidate who also has broad appeal to Independents and Democrats.  The hardest part will be getting nominated, as that requires breaking through a system that has been carefully tailored to favor insiders.  The easier part will be the general election where the people, who know that the establishment of both parties has put us on the road to bankruptcy and tyranny, will have the opportunity to pull that lever for Ron Paul and thereby take our country back,” said William J. Olson of Winchester, Virginia.

Mr. Olson is a graduate of Brown University and the University of the Richmond School of Law.  He has been in the private practice of law in the Washington, D.C. area for 35 years, with an emphasis in Constitutional law, nonprofit organizations, firearms law, health law, and FOIA law.  During that time, he has made over 50 filings in the U.S. Supreme Court.  He served as a legal compliance advisor to the 1980 Reagan Campaign, a Team Leader in the Reagan transition, and held three positions in the Reagan Administration, including Chairman of the Board of the national Legal Services Corporation.  He was Chairman of the Fairfax County (Virginia) Republican Party, and a member of the Virginia Republican State Central Committee.  He represented Ron Paul in his constitutional challenge to the unconstitutional McCain-Feingold campaign finance law.

“I am supporting Ron Paul because his views of the U.S. Constitution are most similar to the values and philosophy of the founding generation and Enlightenment philosophy, which created the basis for the U.S. Constitution.  His domestic policies will help restore the balance of power between State and Federal and will put more power back into the individual’s hands.  It will be much better for business and prosperity in America. More than any president since Regan, it will get America back on the track of respect, honor, and freedom.  By far, his foreign policies match that of the true understanding of the U.S. Constitution.  His policies will alleviate the international tension that is being caused by the United States entanglement with the affairs of the world.  It will save lives and trillions of wasted dollars.  It will dis-incentivize the corruption that goes along with a war-state.  In short, Ron Paul is the best candidate for president of the United States in 2012 because he is the champion of the Constitution,” said Tim Baldwin of Kalispell, Montana.

Mr. Baldwin has been an attorney since 2004 and is licensed to practice in Florida and Montana. He worked for two and a half years as an Assistant State Attorney in Florida and has owned his law practice since 2006.  Mr. Baldwin handles constitutional, criminal, and civil matters.  He is a published author of two books, both of which are political and philosophical in nature, and he regularly writes columns that are posted and printed nationwide.

Cereal giant: Traditional marriage hurts our business
We'd like to call this "one of the dumbest corporate PR stunts of all time," but someone already beat us to the punch.
The CEO of one of America's food giants, whose products you likely feed your children, has put his company on the line by coming out in opposition to Minnesota's traditional marriage initiative.
Defeating the measure, he says, is necessary to keep the company competitive. Otherwise, it will be harder for the Minnesota food producer to retain talented workers.
Really. He said it with a straight face ...

Radical activist judge in VA

Advocate Banner

A radical homosexual activist has just been appointed judge in Virginia, despite the state’s legislature’s adamant rejection of his qualifications.

And Governor Bob McDonnell (VA-R) applauded it!

Here’s the full story:

About a month ago Public Advocate won a major victory in Virginia when thousands of led the charge to remove Tracy Thorne’s name from the list of judicial nominees.

You see, Thorne has a track record of more than 20 years of radical homosexual activism.

He sued the Department of Defense to remove Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

And he is pretending to be in a homosexual “marriage” despite Virginia’s law marriage as only one man and one woman.  He’s even taken his “husband’s” name -- styling himself Thorne-Begland -- in a pretense of true marriage!

And despite all common sense, the ready-to-compromise conservatives in Virginia’s House of Delegates were willing to give this man a judge’s bench to serve on...

With one ruling this man could have legalized homosexual “marriage” in the state.

Thankfully Del. Bob Marshall sent out an alert to pro-Family Virginias and this nomination was derailed through an intense grassroots phone-in campaign -- spearheaded by Public Advocate.

You and I won that round, but the Homosexual Lobby found a loophole.

Despite the fact that Mr. Tracy Thorne-Begland was declared unfit by Virginia legislators, Chief Judge Richard Taylor just appointed him to the exact seat he was previously denied!

This move, while not technically illegal, is nothing less than an end-run around the legislators and the will of the people.

It is absolutely disgusting.

And it should be condemned.

But Governor Bob McDonnell immediately released a statement applauding the move!

“Mr. Thorne-Begland is well-qualified to serve on the bench.  [I] congratulate him on the appointment.”

Gov. McDonnell is sorely out of touch with the America people.

The very pro-Family Virginians that he claims to represent fought tooth and nail to deny this self-serving activist a place of judicial power.

And now he has the gall to ignore everything you and I did!

But there is even more to this fight my friend.

Here is the number for the governor’s office, and a link to an email-in form.

Email the Governor

Please contact him right away and let him know how you and hundreds of thousands more pro-Family Americans feel about homosexual activist judges.

You can also let him know this judicial fight is not over.

Right now there is no legal venue for anyone to challenge Mr. Thorne’s appointment as judge...

...But his position expires if it not confirmed by the next meeting of Virginia’s General Assembly.

And you can be sure that Public Advocate will be ready and waiting for that fight.

For the Family,

Eugene Delgaudio
President, Public Advocate of the United States

P.S. Please prayerfully consider chipping in with a donation of $10 or more to help Public Advocate fight for traditional values.

ACLU of PA Action Alert

Let your state representative know that you want them to stand for privacy!
Dear friend of liberty,
We're disappointed to tell you that on June 13, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives voted to expand the ability of the government and civilians to spy on our fellow citizens. Find out how your representative voted and tell them to protect privacy in Pennsylvania!
House Bill 2400 allows the recording of anyone without their consent if notice has been posted – somewhere – that they might be recorded. It allows the government to use illegal civilian wiretaps, such as those produced in private and without a person's consent or knowledge, in its investigations. And the bill even allows the police to intercept incoming messages and send outgoing messages from seized mobile phones, without ever getting approval from a court.
This legislation is a step toward turning Pennsylvania into a surveillance state. Urge your rep to protect privacy in Pennsylvania!
Yours in liberty,

Andy Hoover
Legislative Director
