Conservative StrikeForce PAC was created in 2009 by a small group of devoted conservatives who wanted a way to effectively support candidates by motivating like-minded voters at the grassroots level. Our goal at Conservative StrikeForce PAC is to organize, motivate and mobilize the conservative voters of America to help elect and support candidates who share our same goals and values.

Trey Gowdy Rocks House with Rousing Speech

November 18, 2014

I hope you'll take a moment to watch this impassioned speech from Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina excoriating Barack Obama for his lawlessness on Obamacare, amnesty, and other policies. We need more of this kind of energy in Congress. No wonder Rep. Gowdy got a standing ovation!

Oh, What A Night! (11/10/2014)

November 10, 2014

America woke up on Wednesday morning, November 5, 2014, having regained some reason for hope in the future.  Voters all across America soundly repudiated the Obama agenda and in the process Republicans made historic gains at all levels of the mid-term election.

Republicans now control the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House and are in the position to halt President Obama’s head long charge towards further assault on the Constitution and our conservative values.  And how sweet it is to know that come next January Harry Reid will no longer be in charge of the U.S. Senate legislative agenda.

But it just was not in the Congressional mid-term elections that Americans spoke loud and clear. Republicans captured the Governor’s office in three states, Massachusetts, Illinois and Maryland, all previously held by liberal Democrats and solid blue states.

And it just gets better. As the final votes are being counted at the state legislative level, it looks like Republicans will control 68 or 69 of 99 state legislative bodies.  And will have total control, Governor, House and Senate in 24 states.  Republicans now hold over 4,000 of the Country’s 7,300 state legislative seats.

This election was a sweeping rejection of the Obama agenda.

However, while President Obama’s job approval rating fell to record lows and in the low thirties in some key states, many targeted races for U.S. Senate and Governor remained too close to call in the closing days of the campaign.  And then the President threw the Republicans a bone when he said even though he was not on the ballot in this election, his “…policies were, every single one of them.”  You could almost hear the wind come out of the Democratic campaigns.  The groans of agony at the Democratic Senate and House campaign committee headquarters could be heard throughout the country.

Indeed this election was a referendum on the President and his agenda. He failed completely, as he has failed America and her people for the past six years.

Now the first responsibility of the Republican Congress is to stop the social, security, and economic erosion brought on by President Obama and his far left agenda. When the boat is taking on water, first you plug the leak then figure out what to do next.  The Republican Congress should first make sure to halt the President’s assault on the Constitution and then put forth, on a regular basis, practical solutions to our tax, defense, energy and health care issues. And dare the President to veto them.

I want to close by thanking you for your support over the past several years. Conservative StrikeForce Pac has been blessed to receive the financial support from thousands of donors all across the country which enabled us to assist good conservative U.S. Senate candidates like Tom Cotton in Arkansas, Thom Tillis in North Carolina, David Perdue in Georgia, Joni Earnst in Iowa, and Cory Gardner in Colorado . All were successful and are going to serve with great distinction.

Adding to the excitement is Dan Sullivan in Alaska who holds an 8,000 vote lead.  Because of the nature of the geography in Alaska it will be a few more days until this race is final but conservatives can be very excited about our prospects there.

Finally, we have Congressman Bill Cassidy in Louisiana.  What a great candidate he is and I am looking forward to him winning the runoff against Mary Landrieu on December 6th.  Mary Landrieu is the poster child of a liberal Democrat who needs to be removed from office…she votes with Barack Obama 97% of the time.

The liberals are going to fight us every step of the way to December 6th.  We have to stand with Bill Cassidy and fight back.  I am also pleased to report that Colonel Rob Maness has endorsed Congressman Cassidy in the runoff bringing the passion, energy and commitment of Tea Party members into this runoff.  It is very exciting.

Finally as great as the night was we missed a few opportunities like Ed Gillespie in Virginia who came within less than one percentage point of defeating liberal Democrat Mark Warner. All the pundits gave Gillespie no chance as recently as four weeks ago but he worked hard and ran a great campaign.  I am so proud Conservative StrikeForce supported him.

Thank you again and I hope we can count on your continued support as we do everything we can to help Bill Cassidy retire liberal Obama supporter Mary Landrieu on December 6th.

God bless.

Who Will Protect Your Vote November 4th? (10/22/2014)

October 22, 2014

Two weeks from yesterday votes will be cast and counted all across America that will determine if we will cast aside the frontal and flank assault by President Obama and his allies in the U. S. Senate on our basic freedoms guaranteed by the U. S. Constitution. In fact, millions of Americans have already voted as thirty states now have early voting either in person or through absentee balloting. And some states require their citizens to vote only by mail. So how safe is your vote these days?

Not very.

One man one vote. That was the premise our founding fathers set forth for electing our national leaders. But much has been written and said lately about the need for a way to assure that whomever shows up to vote or requests an absentee ballot or receives a mail in ballot is not only who they claim to be, but are legally eligible to register to vote and in fact are registered.

I believe everyone eligible to register to vote should register and then vote. In fact, maybe one of the good things our government could do is to require all Americans once they reach the age of 18 to register to vote and receive a photo voter id card when they register.

But our government should then make every effort to protect the vote of those legally registered and take the time to vote. Voter fraud exists. I have seen it myself. And those who orchestrate it, condone it and turn a blind eye to voter fraud are as guilty of undermining our political system as those who actually cheat at the ballot box.

And when the media refuse to expose voter fraud, they abandon one of their fundamental rights and obligations, to protect free speech of all Americans.

Every state should pass voter id legislation that mirrors that passed in Indiana and upheld by the U. S. Supreme Court. I have every right to know the person in front of me and behind me in the voting line is eligible to register to vote, is registered to vote and is who he or she claims to be. Americans deserve to know our elections are fair and clean. Otherwise, confidence in our political system will erode further than it already has.  

President Obama and his (former) Attorney General, Eric Holder, claim requiring everyone to have a photo id in order to vote puts an unnecessary burden on minority voters and has the result of suppressing the vote.

Let’s be honest.

You need a photo id to buy a pack of cigarettes, buy beer, board a plane, cash a check, get in a book store to see Michelle Obama sign books, and to operate a vehicle. In fact, back in the summer written guidance handed out to demonstrators gathering in Charlotte, N. C. to march against requiring a photo id to vote told everyone to bring a photo id. Earlier this year, the City of Washington, D. C. set aside a day for just the city’s residents to view the new Dr. Martin Luther King Memorial. And, you guessed it, they were required to show a photo id.

Voter fraud is real. Stealing votes does occur. Buying votes is not a thing of the past.

Members of the main stream media and even some historians make light of how Lyndon Johnson stole the election in his first race for the U. S. Senate in Texas and how John F. Kennedy and Chicago Mayor Daley stole Illinois for Kennedy in the 1960 Presidential election. Kennedy won the 1960 Presidential election by less than one vote per precinct nationwide. Johnson became President when President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. And then we got the “Great Society” and the “war on poverty ” which started this country on a steep economic decline and spawned generations of Americans totally dependent upon one government program or another.

Honest elections are the cornerstone of our democracy. So why isn’t our government doing everything possible to ensure our elections are honest and clean? Obama and the far left believe it is better for more people to vote than for more legally eligible people to vote.

Please vote this November 4th and do not hesitate to report what looks like voter fraud and intimidation at the polling place. Be the first to protect your vote. Many who would corrupt the voting process count on the average American not speaking up when they see something out of order.
