“Part of what we are doing at Bridge Alliance is trying to help people be aware of all of these different layers that need to be worked on simultaneously,” said Bridge Alliance Co-Director Debilyn Molineaux, in an interview for IVN. Several “member” organizations of Bridge Alliance could not be further apart in their individual goals, but they all work toward solutions that create a more robust government that functions better and is accountable to ALL voters.

Schweizer Highlights McConnell-Chao Enrichment Efforts

AUBURN, AL- Peter Schweizer, a tremendous author, researcher, and friend of Take Back Our Republic, has a new book, “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends.” A New York Post article examines Schweizer’s look at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife, Elaine Chao, who also serves as Transportation Secretary. The author of “Clinton Cash” notes that the couple had an average net worth of $3.1 million back in 2004. In public service since then, they have seen that grow to somewhere between $9.2 million and $36.5 million. According to Schweizer, much [...]
FEC

A weak FEC really contributes to filling the swamp, not draining it.

More than a year into his presidency, President Trump has shown little interest in beefing up the Federal Election Commission, the agency that could serve as a key player in his avowed agenda to reduce the influence of moneyed interests on politics. So far, Trump has nominated just one new commissioner to fill the two open spots on the panel. He has the opportunity to name an entirely new slate. The remaining four commissioners are serving on expired terms, two of which ended as long as a decade ago. If one more leaves without being replaced, the FEC will lack a quorum and [...]

AUBURN, AL- At Take Back Our Republic, a central component of our vision is more participation. We want more people engaged, knowledgeable, voting, and contributing time and effort to make certain that their representation reflects their aspirations. While this is a priority across the board- for every voter, from every state, every ideology, and every race and background- perhaps the most important group to make certain their voting rights are protected is the military. Now, through technology, their opportunity to make their voice heard may be greater than ever before. Global Mobile, an Atlanta based company, is developing a platform [...]

AUBURN - Oh, they were picking 68 schools based on basketball? Sunday we picked them based on student involvement. As the NCAA committee unveiled the 68 schools who would compete in the billion-dollar "March Madness" tournament, Take Back Our Republic unveiled the top schools as represented by update sign-ups. Which student body is most engaged as we work toward our vision of Americans once again trusting the integrity of every election and that once elected these officials will focus on the good of their constituents? Despite the home court advantage of Auburn University, which the Princeton Review rates as the [...]

Bridge Alliance is launching #HealthyGov in order to raise awareness of the problems we face, and what its “member” organizations are doing to promote a healthier democratic process and government.

New Mexico Passes Anti-Foreign Influence Bill Based on TBOR Educational Paper

As reported in the Sante Fe New Mexican, legislation based on a Take Back educational paper was passed in the New Mexico legislature and signed by Governor Susana Martinez. "SB 50, sponsored by Sen. Cisco McSorley, D-Albuquerque, and Albuquerque Republicans Reps. Jim Dine and Bill Rehm, closes what campaign finance reform advocates call a “credit card loophole” that can allow donors to make unverifiable, fraudulent contributions to politicians. The bill would require that donors type in a three-digit security code on the back of their credit or debit card when making a political contribution online, as well as a billing [...]

More than Impeachment: Steyer Now Funding Soros-Founded Immigrant PAC

AUBURN, AL- Liberal mega-donor Tom Steyer continues to expand his profile ahead of a possible 2020 presidential run. The largest donor of the 2016 election cycle, he has already increased his national footprint with an 8-figure ad campaign aimed at impeaching President Trump. With ads featuring himself on camera, it is fair to speculate whether Steyer has his sights set on the highest office in the land. Now, his efforts have expanded to funding the George Soros founded “Immigrant Voters Win PAC” which has the goal of expanding the electorate by 10 million voters. This cycle, Steyer’s NextGen Climate Action [...]

NYT: Cuomo Taking in Major Money from Appointees

AUBURN, AL- A rivalry is deepening in New York where Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio may have aspirations for the Democratic nomination in 2020. An early wedge issue between the two seems to be emerging as campaign finance reform. Previously, we wrote that Cuomo called some of de Blasio’s reform plans “dead on arrival,” and now the governor is taking heat for some of his own campaign finance practices. A recent NY Times piece points out a November 2017 fundraising trip to Buffalo where two events raised more than $200,000 for Cuomo. Both of those events were [...]

Rasmussen Calls for Fundamental Reform

AUBURN, AL- Scott Rasmussen, a highly respected pollster, author, and commentator, has joined the chorus in calling for sweeping reform to our election system. The founder of Rasmussen Reports was already well-known but saw his credibility increase all-the-more as perhaps the pollster most bullish on Donald Trump’s 2016 chances. Citing the court ruling which shakes up the landscape in Pennsylvania- and, therefore, nationally- for congressional campaigns, he declared it is “time to change the election game.” The ruling, where district maps have been redrawn, could flip three seats in the state which may mean a change in control of the [...]
