I have teamed up with the organizers of the Southern Republican Leadership Conference to offer you an EXCLUSIVE, DISCOUNTED ONE DAY PASS rate!  For only $25, you can join me on Thursday afternoon for my speech and then attend the globally televised CNN Presidential Debate on Thursday evening! 


My mission is still to defeat Barack Obama and get the Republican nominee for the Presidency elected, and we cannot win this fight without YOU!

WASHINGTON – Senator Chuck Grassley has meetings scheduled with Iowans in 16 counties next week.

Beginning on Monday, Grassley will be in Centerville, Albia, Chariton, Corydon, Garden Grove, Mt. Ayr, Creston, Osceola, Winterset, Greenfield, Panora, Grimes, Grand Junction, Boone, Ames, and Le Grand.

Already this month, he has traveled to 20 counties for dialogue with Iowans.  Grassley has held at least one meeting in each of Iowa’s 99 counties every year since he was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1980.

“I look forward to these meetings to hear directly from Iowans and to have the dialogue that’s so important to the process of representative government.  This process is a two-way street.  I go to people to answer questions and listen to comments, and they come out and participate in the discussion,” Grassley said.

Grassley encourages Iowans to communicate with him on a regular basis.  In turn, he plans regular, face-to-face meetings in Iowa and with Iowans in Washington, and he responds to every letter, email and phone call from Iowans.  Grassley also communicates via Facebook, Twitter and at http://grassley.senate.gov.

Below is more information about this month’s meetings.  The town meetings are open to the public.  Local hosts should be contacted regarding other meetings.  Grassley will be available for interviews with local reporters for 15 minutes after every meeting.

Earlier this month, Grassley held meetings in Riceville, Charles City, New Hampton, Waverly, Waterloo, Clarion, Dakota City, Algona, Forest City, Garner, Hampton, Mason City, Manly, Osage, Calmar, West Union, Independence, Manchester, Vinton, and Gladbrook.

With help from over 1,700 Iowans, Braley sets new record for non-election year fundraising in Iowa’s First District

Waterloo, IA – The Bruce Braley for Congress campaign announced today that it will report having raised over $1.1 million during 2011 when it files its year-end Federal Election Commission report, due January 31st.  The report will also show Braley raising over $320,000 during the 4th quarter of 2011, and will report the campaign having over $627,000 cash on hand.  More than 1,700 Iowans contributed to Braley’s campaign in 2011.

$1.1 million is the most ever raised by a 1st District Congressional candidate during a non-election year.

“Thanks to the outpouring of support from Iowans during 2011, Braley for Congress has set yet another non-election year fundraising record,” Braley for Congress campaign manager Molly Scherrman said.  “This record year shows that Iowans want someone who’s on our side in Congress working to create jobs, strengthen the middle class, and stand up for veterans.  Tea Party Republicans funded by Washington special interests may target Bruce because he puts Iowa first, but they’ll have to contend with this strong base of grassroots support first.”

“9-9-9 The Revolution” Cain: “Brains and Ballots, Not Bombs and Bullets” PDF Print E-mail

(New York) On Fox News’ “Hannity” television show Wednesday night, Herman Cain told the world he intends to start something—a revolution. He has launched “Cain’s Solutions Revolution.”

Due in part to its incredible popularity, the first focus of “Cain’s Solutions Revolution” will be “9-9-9 The Revolution”. This movement will promote real solutions to the serious problems that have, for far too long, kept government power out of the hands of the American people, out of the very hands where government power truly belongs.

Mr. Cain assures this revolution is not simply slogans or empty promises, "This movement is not about bombs and bullets. It’s about brains and ballots,” Cain said. “With the simple key solutions we have outlined at www.cainconnections.com, we the people, can – and will – take back our government.”

In addition to ‘9-9-9 The Revolution’, ‘Cain’s  Solutions Revolution’ includes several other very important solution areas:

  • Regulatory Reform
  • Energy Independence: “Made in America”
  • Monetary Reform: (Make the dollar as good as gold)
  • Peace through Strength and Clarity
  • Candidate Commitments

“Cain’s Solutions Revolution” will also provide the strategy and tactics for our citizens to make these solutions come to life – across the nation, in our states and in our local communities.

Through bus tours, town hall meetings, rallies and many other outreach efforts, the “Cain Solutions Revolution” will energize and empower not only those who want to ‘keep 9-9-9 alive’ but who are inspired to have a major, positive impact on the future of our country in this critical 2012 election season and beyond.

Iowa Caucus results PDF Print E-mail

On the evening of January 3rd Occupy Iowa Caucus (#OIC) met a set back; despite a combined effort of media and work on the ground we have achieved a small turnout for “Uncommitted”; with 1.5% in the Democratic caucus and 0.6% in the GOP’s caucus. This is a set back for all who identify with the 99%.

The set back is not due to our own organization, but rather the powerful organization and allies of our enemies. The GOP, the Democratic Party and corporations have been working to suppress the voices of the 99%.

This has suppression been seen in the fact that corporate media has denied our approaches and not covered this effort. Furthermore the threats of both parties to ignore or not count uncommitted votes show their willingness to suppress democracy

This is a clear illustration of that which we are working against. This exercise, in democracy, has clearly demonstrated that this current system cannot work for the interests of the 99%. This shows the flawed nature of our system where it is impossible for the small underfunded contender to achieve victory.

This is a clear sign of a corrupt system. The fact that the candidate who can spend the most money wins 9 out of 10 times, as was the case last night, illustrates the deepest flaw of the current voting system. However this is not the end, a better world is still possible.
