Russian and Chinese Political Money Bad; No Matter Which Party Targeted

Most Democrats believe the Russians influenced President Trump's friend and or family with illicit money. Most Republicans believe the Chinese influenced Vice President Biden's family with illicit money. All Americans should unite in at least accepting the fact that both countries and many others foreign entities are trying to choose who sets American policy and influence that policy so it favors their interest rather than Americans. A year before the Mueller Report was issued outlining Russian influence after issuing many indictments due to steps taken to help Trump, or Fox News' Steve Hilton labeled Joe Biden as "Joe China" for [...]

Take Back Our Republic Connecticut coordinator Gregory Byrnes and Executive Director John Pudner met with hundreds of "their closest friends" at the Connecticut State Capitol this Saturday afternoon. They took the message of how pay-for-play politics is the reason politicians take more money from residents. In Connecticut's case, a toll is being voted on, but the law then gives politicians and bureaucrats the ability to raise rates as much as they want without ever going back to the voters. While we cropped the name and photo of the elected officials in the photo below,  the verbiage was "Hey (State Rep name eliminated) ... [...]

“Our constitution’s framers crafted history’s most remarkable form of government,” said former Republican state senator Jim Rubens.  “But as our framers warned, survival of our republic rests on both active citizenship and trust that our representatives are acting in our best interest. That trust is gone. We need action by Congress to restore it.” Rubens, who lives in Etna and is New England Chair of Take Back Our Republic,  cited a recent Rasmussen poll showing that 53% of voters now believe that government corruption is our nation’s biggest crisis. “Voters don’t just believe, they know that the system is rigged by those powerful or wealthy [...]

The week after Carolina Fox news featured him after Senator Lindsay Graham, TBOR's Executive Director John Pudner debated Cenk Uygur on the California-based The Young Turks. The 11-minute segment ran on The Young Turks online network which draws 80 million visits a month to rival the biggest traditional networks in the country, and the Wednesday night interview can be seen by clicking here. Pudner disagreed with Uygur's view that Congress should now continue investigations or impeachment, and pointed to just-released CNN polling numbers indicating there was little support for such a move. According to CNN, only 37% supporting impeachment to [...]

Take Back Our Republic ED featured in Concord Monitor

  This morning Executive Director John Pudner outlined in New Hampshire's Concord Monitor why New Hampshire Republicans want limits on political spending. "But entrenched political groups often benefit from the status quo and oppose reform. Even reforms supported by GOP voters. Even reforms that might help GOP candidates, such as improved disclosure of political spending. Democrats held a huge edge in secret (sometimes called “dark”) money for the first time ever in 2018. Act Blue, Soros, Bloomberg and Steyer, and other mega-wealthy donors, prepare to once again outspend Republicans in 2020. Voters deserve to know whose money is behind the candidates [...]

After concluding an unrelated interview with US Senator Lindsey Graham, Fox Carolina TV asked TBOR Executive Director John Pudner why it was important to bring their conservative solutions for campaign finance reform to Republican leaders in South Carolina. Pudner responded that during his time running the South Carolina call center operation for George W. Bush in 2000, he learned South Carolinians drive many conservative positions nationwide - putting Bush back on the path to the Presidency after his nomination was in doubt due to losing New Hampshire to John McCain. TBOR hopes the hundreds of South Carolinians who signed up [...]

From the desk of Elizabeth Rich Grey Bear The ND Senate Bill 2148 hearing I attended at the North Dakota state capitol in March was striking for me. The one sentence resounding by one of the legislators speaking, I believe it was from a question posed by Josh Boschee, remains key for [TBOR] takeback.org, a conservative solutions entity for campaign finance reform. The question was asked by the former candidate, who ran against our sitting Secretary of State, Al Jaeger, that was Josh Boschee, and this was the most enlightening question and answering moment I took away from this boring [...]
