They're hiding from you

Wednesday morning

   Dear Loudoun neighbor,

   Loudoun’s liberals are hiding.

   Help me smoke them out.

   A few weeks ago I sent every candidate for Loudoun County Supervisor my American Tradition Partnership Candidate Issues Survey, asking them to explain their positions on Jim Burton’s Chesapeake Bay Property Control Plan and other issues threatening Loudoun.

   The following candidates, all of them recipients of Gang Green cash and advocates of Jim Burton’s Chesapeake Bay Property Control Plan to tax and regulate your home property and business, refuse to share their opinions on issues affecting Loudoun families, farmers and job creators.

   I need you to call them.

   And call them BEFORE the polls open at 6:00 a.m. and close at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 8th.

   Ask them to return their American Tradition Partnership Candidate Issue Surveys in 100% support of farmers, job creators, property owners, taxpayers and families.

   Their home and cell phone numbers are below.

BLUE RIDGE: Supervisor Jim Burton, 703-327-4299

BROAD RUN: Supervisor Andrea McGimsey, 703-430-7024

LEESBURG: Supervisor Kelly Burk, 703-779-0035

STERLING: Alfonso Nevarez, 703-531-7909

CATOCTIN: Malcolm Baldwin, 540-822-4236

ALGONKIAN: Denise Pierce, 703-450-4260

DULLES: Larry Roeder, 703-867-2056

ASHBURN: Valdis Ronis, 703-655-5333

   When a candidate refuses to answer my survey it almost always means one thing…

   … They are deep in the hip pocket of radical Gang Green lobbyists, and they plan to do major damage if elected.

   Now, you’re probably asking yourself, “who is American Tradition Partnership?”

   ATP is the nation’s largest and fastest-growing grassroots advocate of rational, pro-jobs environmental policies.

   We are America’s ONLY grassroots-based, “people-powered” opponent of Gang Green — the multimillion dollar environmentalist lobby.

   In fact, you can become a part of our growing grassroots army.

   Just go to to chip in $10, $25 or even $500.

   Every penny of your gift will be used here in Loudoun to hold Gang Green politicians accountable.

   Here in Loudoun, ATP was among the first groups to oppose the Board’s Chesapeake Bay Property Control Plan, and the most active.

   I telephoned a total of 65,000 Loudoun residents, giving them their supervisor’s office, home or cell phone number and urging them to contact their supervisor in opposition to the tax-and-regulate plan.

   Supervisor Jim Burton eventually tabled the plan after ATP placed over 10,000 phone calls into his district, leading Burton to bitterly complain citizens were asking him to oppose it before he eventually gave in.

   But Burton did not kill the plan.  He simply tabled it and can bring it back at any time.

   They’re just playing a waiting game, and I am ready to beat it back down again.

   I just finished a raw steak and a glass of scotch for breakfast, so I have plenty more fight left.

   ATP has earned its reputation as the nation’s most effective opponent of the multi-million dollar “Gang Green” environmentalist lobby.

   ATP wins time and time again because the people are on our side, something elected officials should keep in mind.

   In fact, ATP is currently the focus of an attack by “Green For All,” a radical leftist group founded by former Obama advisor Van Jones and funded by leftist billionaire George Soros.  

   “American Tradition Partnership intends to play a larger and larger role in national politics,” the group’s “Oppose The Future” project writes.

   “This year at CPAC, ATP was relatively unknown. That’s not likely to continue much longer,” Soros’ sock puppet complained.

   Well, if Van Jones and George Soros are trying to stop me I must be doing something right.

   So you know it would drive George Soros crazy if you went to and chipped in $10, $25 or even $500.

   One Colorado state senate candidate, writing on the political blog, referred to me as, “(a)n aggressive supporter of all things anti-Obama and a loyal defender of last century’s fuel industry” while admitting he is “someone who knows quite a bit about marketing,” is “very impressive” and has a “history of being quoted by Rush Limbaugh and Fox News.”

   That candidate would go onto lose…

   …after refusing to answer his ATP survey.

   With the support of good folks like you, in just the last few months ATP has:

* Filed lawsuits in Montana to allow corporations to make expenditures on behalf of candidates.

* Killed Barack Obama’s “Cap and Tax” bill in Congress.

* Along with allies, collected the signatures of 750,000 Americans in support of the Keystone XL pipeline, which transports Canadian oil across the United States to Southeast Texas for refining.

* Won House Judiciary Committee approval of the REINS Act, which strips federal bureaucrats of their power to propose and enforce major federal regulations.  The bill will now be approved by the full House before moving to the Senate.

* Successfully pushed to have the gray wolf taken off the so-called “Endangered Species List” so it can be hunted down and exterminated.

* Filed a federal lawsuit against Colorado to repeal the state’s Expensive Energy Mandate, which forces consumers to buy more expensive wind and solar power against their will.

* Filed a lawsuit against Montana to stop their ongoing harassment and false smear campaigns against conservative groups, which has already been blasted by federal courts as “petty bureaucratic harassment.”  Montana officials have openly admitted they have no evidence conservative groups have done any wrong and every district attorney has refused to even look into the politically-motivated accusations.

* Won national headlines along with our federal free speech lawsuit against Montana which allows small employers to spend money on independent political expenditures.

* Won a federal free speech lawsuit against a liberal Colorado city who passed a law requiring residents to essentially get permission from the government before saying or publishing anything critical of the liberal city council.

* Stopped a plan by liberals in the U.S. Senate to protect the EPA’s plans to declare carbon dioxide a toxic pollutant.

* Passed legislation in Montana endorsing nullification of the so-called “Endangered Species Act.”

* Launched a campaign to repeal New Hampshire’s participation in the “Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative,” a northeastern U.S. “global warming” tax cartel.

* Launched a national campaign to debunk phony claims about natural gas development using safe, clean hydraulic fracturing.

* Sank plans by Newt Gingrich to win the 2011 CPAC conservative conference’s famous Straw Poll.  With a coveted speaking slot, exhibiting organization and book signing, hosting three panels and a reception and screening two films, Gingrich’s presence dominated that of other presumptive presidential candidates.  CPAC looked to be a launching pad for a Gingrich presidential bid.  Instead, the Republican powerhouse cratered after ATP informed voters of Gingrich’s long record of supporting massive tax hikes, increased government power and international regulatory regimes to enforce what he calls “environmental compliance.”

   But right now all I want is for every candidate running for the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors to send me their ATP Candidate Survey in 100% support of killing Jim Burton’s Chesapeake Bay Property Control Plan, and in 100% support of pro-jobs, pro-economic growth environmental policies.

   So please call your candidates.

   About the only time you can get a Gang Green-aligned politician to listen is right before they go in front of voters.

   So call them BEFORE the polls open at 6:00 a.m. and close at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 8th.

   And please take just a minute to join American Tradition Partnership by going to and chipping in $10, $25 or even $500.

   Keep calling!
