61-year-old woman kicked out of McCain event

61-year-old woman kicked out of McCain “public” townhall meeting

July 7, 2008

On orders from Senator John McCain’s security detail, Denver police escorted a 61-year-old woman away who was waiting in line to attend a so-called town hall meeting with McCain that was billed as open to the public.

Carol Kreck, who works as a librarian in Denver, held a homemade sign reading “McCain = Bush.” On orders from McCain’s security detail, police cited her for trespassing and escorted her to the sidewalk. She was told if she returned she would be arrested.

“And all I did was carry a sign that said McCain = Bush,” Kreck said. “And for everyone who voted for Bush, I don’t see why it’s offensive to say McCain = Bush.”

This episode by McCain’s Secret Service appears to be a rerun of McCain’s 2005 town hall in Denver with President Bush in which the Secret Service had three Denver citizens removed from an “open” event where McCain was campaigning with Pres. Bush for his plan to privatize social security.

Hillary Clinton refuses to sign the Freedom Pledge

Clinton refuses to sign the Freedom Pledge, which demands that the future president give up the power to torture, go to war, spy on Americans,etc.

The Political Inquirer
November 2, 2007

Does anyone remember last week when Hillary Clinton went against her appearance as a power-grabber and said she would give up powers as president? Today in the New York Times, Bruce Fein, the Chairman of the American Freedom Agenda, said that Hillary refuses to sign the pledge.

What does the American Freedom pledge do? Well, here’s the letter:

Re “Clinton Plans to Consider Giving Up Some Powers” (news article, Oct. 24): The American Freedom Agenda, an organization of conservatives founded last March 20 to restore checks and balances and protections against government abuses, requested all presidential aspirants, including Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, to sign an American Freedom Pledge.

They were asked to renounce the following powers if elected: torture; presidential signing statements; indefinite detentions of American citizens as enemy combatants; military commissions that combine judge, jury and prosecutor; spying on American citizens in contravention of federal statutes on the president’s say-so alone; kidnapping, imprisoning and torturing suspected terrorists abroad; executive privilege to shield the executive branch from Congressional oversight; prosecuting journalists under the Espionage Act for exposing national security abuses; listing organizations as terrorist groups based on secret evidence; suspending the writ of habeas corpus during the conflict with international terrorism; and invoking the state secrets privilege to deny victims of constitutional wrongdoing any judicial remedy. Senator Clinton has balked at signing the pledge, as have all other candidates except Representative Ron Paul.

The American Freedom Agenda Act of 2007 — Both Conservatives and Liberals Endorse Ron Paul’s Bill to Uphold the Constitution

October 20, 2007

On October 15, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) introduced the American Freedom Agenda Act of 2007 “To restore the Constitution’s checks and balances and protections against government abuses as envisioned by the Founding Fathers.”

On October 15, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) introduced the American Freedom Agenda Act of 2007 (H.R. 3835) “To restore the Constitution’s checks and balances and protections against government abuses as envisioned by the Founding Fathers.”

The issues addressed by this bill are:

  • Military Commissions; Enemy Combatants; Habeas Corpus;
  • Torture or Coerced Confessions;
  • Intelligence Gathering;
  • Presidential Signing Statements;
  • Kidnaping, Detentions, and Torture Abroad;
  • Journalist Exception to Espionage Act; and
  • Use of Secret Evidence to Make Foreign Terrorist Designations.

On March 20, 2007, a group of nationally known conservatives (Bruce Fein, David Keene, Richard Viguerie, and Bob Barr) announced the formation of the American Freedom Agenda (AFA), a campaign to restore governmental checks and balances and civil liberties protections under assault by the Bush administration. The same day, the AFA “outlined a legislative package that would bind the current and all future occupants of the White House, irrespective of party affiliation, to restore congressional oversight, personal civil liberties, and governmental checks and balances….”

At the same meeting AFA unveiled a “Freedom Pledge” based on the principles contained in its legislative package, which it planned to issue to all presidential candidates of both parties to sign. It was also revealed that Rep. Ron Paul, who had already announced his candidacy for president, had already signed the “Freedom Pledge.” Ron Paul–s American Freedom Agenda Act of 2007 closely reflects the AFA–s legislative package.

In the meantime, in July a group with a similar name and purpose was launched by some well-known liberals. The group is called the American Freedom Campaign. Its purpose is surprisingly similar to that of the American Freedom Agenda. Its founders include Wes Boyd, co-founder of; David Fenton, William Haseltine, and Naomi Wolf.

Wolf has already strongly endorsed Ron Paul–s American Freedom Agenda Act of 2007 bill:

There are two new organizations that are driving a grassroots push to restore the rule of law: the American Freedom Agenda was started by leaders who are conservative: Bruce Fein, who was a Reagan administration official in the Department of Justice, and others. The American Freedom Campaign was started by progressives. Both groups advance comparable 10 point legislative agendas that would stabilize democracy long enough for us to forestall the worst and regroup for more long-term reparation of the Constitution and the rule of law…. The big news is that this idea can now become a law and a law creates a reality.

On Monday, Rep. Ron Paul, the outsider Republican presidential candidate who has long upheld these values and who was an early voice warning of the grave danger to all of us of these abuses, introduced the AFA’s legislative package into Congress…. It is the American Freedom Agenda Act of 2007, and you should read it in its entirety: just as accounts of the recent abuses send chills down your spine, this beautifully argued document feels historic and has the ring of great power to correct great injustice.

Earlier today the John Birch Society sent out an email alert in support of the American Freedom Agenda Act of 2007. The Birch Society has also added “Support the American Freedom Agenda Act of 2007” to the action items under its Freedom Campaign.
