ATP presses Loudoun Board candidates on environmental extremism
* Ferguson: ‘Candidates who oppose jobs, property rights and progress will be held accountable.’
* Group contacted 65,000 total Loudoun residents in effort that stopped CBPO

The nation’s largest and fastest-growing grassroots advocate of rational, pro-jobs environmental policies has sent all candidates for the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors a survey asking them to explain their positions on important issues facing voters.

“Voters have a right to know which candidates stand for jobs and which are hiding an anti-jobs, anti-progress agenda,” said American Tradition Partnership Executive Director Donald Ferguson.  “The beating, led by American Tradition Partnership, this Board took over its Chesapeake Bay scheme makes one thing clear. Loudoun is sick of tax hikes and radical regulations from the ‘Gang Green’ Board.”

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

“Our purpose is to promote rational environmental polices and educate the public where candidates stand on those issues.  As I promised last year we’ve been working non-stop to hold accountable those who oppose job creation, property rights and progress.  Candidates who oppose jobs, property rights and progress will be held accountable,” said Ferguson.  “Every member of the next Board of Supervisors should support rational environmental policy and oppose the radical anti-progress extremism of the Gang Green environmental movement.”

Candidates had until Oct. 15 to have their returned American Tradition Partnership surveys postmarked for delivery.  Results are currently being compiled.

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

“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,” said Ferguson.

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

“American Tradition Partnership wins time and time again because the people are on our side, something elected officials should keep in mind,” said Ferguson.  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,” the group complained.

“If Van Jones and George Soros are trying to stop American Tradition Partnership I must be doing something right,” said Ferguson.

One Colorado state senate candidate, writing on the political blog ColoradoPols.com, referred to Ferguson 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.

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.”

ATP does not advocate the election or defeat of candidates.  Supported by grassroots members, ATP is a fast-growing non-profit citizens’ group dedicated to fighting environmental extremism and promoting private property rights and responsible development and management of land, water, and natural resources.

Donald Ferguson is the Executive Director of American Tradition Partnership.  Born and raised in Beaumont, Texas, birthplace of the oil industry, Ferguson attended Texas A&M University and has been involved in free-market advocacy and political organizing for two decades.  He also serves as an advisor to political campaigns, lobbying groups, non-profit organizations and businesses across the United States and in Africa.

Citizens’ group surveys Longmont council candidates

Citizens’ group surveys Longmont council candidates
Funded entirely by Longmont residents, American Tradition Partnership – Longmont asks candidates where they stand on balanced environmental, jobs policies

Colorado’s largest and fastest-growing grassroots advocate of rational, pro-jobs environmental policies has sent all candidates for Longmont City Council a survey asking their positions on important issues facing the city.

Candidates had until Oct. 10. to have their returned American Tradition Partnership – Longmont surveys postmarked for delivery.  Results are currently being compiled.  The survey program was funded entirely by Longmont residents.

“Longmont is a wonderful place to live and raise a family,” said American Tradition Partnership – Longmont Executive Director Donald Ferguson.  “Citizens have a right to know where candidates stand on issues affecting their jobs and family budgets.  As a grassroots group supported by citizens, ATP-Longmont is committed to holding candidates accountable and advocating environmental policies that balance stewardship with prosperity.”

ATP – Longmont does not advocate the election or defeat of candidates.  Powered by grassroots members, ATP is a fast-growing non-profit citizens’ group dedicated to promoting rational, responsible energy and environmental policies.

The survey questions follow:

1) Will you oppose any effort to enter Longmont into a “revenue sharing” agreement with Boulder County, which would transfer control of Longmont development decisions and Longmont taxpayers’ money to Boulder?
[  ] Yes            [  ] No

2) Would you support the City of Longmont spending taxpayer money for energy efficiency or so-called “green” projects, even if the project will never achieve the promised cost savings, or a measurable financial “break-even” point?
[  ] Yes            [  ] No

3) Will you oppose any attempt to increase taxes, taxpayer-funded subsidies or by any means raise consumer costs of energy for the advancement of so-called “alternative” energy sources?
[  ] Yes            [  ] No

4) In 2010, Mayor Brian Baum and a majority on City Council blocked an attempt to give away $150,000 of Longmont utility customers’ funds to help provide $4,500 “stimulus” checks to a handful of residents. The funds were to be used to buy solar panels for private homes whose owners could afford the additional $25,000 cost. Councilmembers Sarah Levison, Sean McCoy and Brian Hansen supported the program.  Do you support the Mayor’s and Council majority’s decision to oppose such publicly funded “bailout” money for “green” projects?
[  ] Yes            [  ] No

5) Proposition 103 raises income and sales taxes for the claimed purpose of increasing funding for schools.  Do you support or oppose Proposition 103?
[  ] Oppose           [  ] Support

6) Twin Peaks Mall has become a front-burner issue in Longmont, and the loss of tax revenue from shoppers traveling to other communities is burdening the city. Do you support tax incentives and other proactive measures being offered by the city to induce developer Harvest Junction to redevelop the Twin Peaks Mall, so long as the measure is revenue-neutral or revenue-positive in in its early stages?
[  ] Yes            [  ] No

7) Do you support anti-growth policies or maintaining high regulations and fees for homebuilding in Longmont, similar to policies in Boulder?
[  ] Support            [  ] Oppose

8) The Audubon Society allows natural resource exploration in its wildlife refuges if such development is done in a safe and clean manner, in part because it means large amounts of revenue for the wildlife charity.  Will you support resource exploration in any and all eligible areas if all aesthetic, safety and environmental standards were met, and if it benefit the city’s revenues?
[  ] Yes             [  ] No

9) A detailed EPA report (available on our website) ties burdensome regulation to premature death due to destruction of economic opportunity – particularly for poor and middle-class communities. Do you agree that radical environmentalism and excessive regulation poses a threat to Americans’ health, rights, property and prosperity?
[  ] Yes            [  ] No

10) One Longmont City Council member has advocated a homebuilding moratorium. Do you believe this type of policy would be detrimental to the city of Longmont?
[  ] Yes            [  ] No

10) Do you support or oppose the expansion of Longmont Municipal Airport?
[  ] Support            [  ] Oppose

“We the jury find the defendant, Barack Obama, GUILTY.”

Posted on October 14, 2011 by Donald Ferguson

Dear ATP supporter,

“We the jury find the defendant, Barack Obama, GUILTY.”

Let me explain.

Barack Obama’s Solyndra corruption scandal is growing.  It appears Obama ordered a half-billion dollars be funneled into a campaign donor’s “green” investment despite warnings by government officials such a loan was against the rules.

And internal e-mails indicate that not only were officials instructed to ignore ethics and financial rules and even re-write laws to approve the loan so it could be showcased to build support for the Gang Green agenda…

…and the pressure to approve the loan came in violation of ethics agreements by Obama himself.

This is a serious and massive issue.

It appears the White House spent a half-billion dollars to promote radical environmentalism and bail out a campaign bankroller’s failing investment – even if it mean violating ethics rules.

   But many of the facts remain hidden and Obama won’t turn over the evidence without a fight – a fight you and I know the mainstream media and Attorney General Eric Holder won’t take up.

Here’s what we do know.

>> Solyndra, a solar panel manufacturer, asked the Bush administration for a loan to keep the afloat.  The Bush administration turned them down.

>> One of Solyndra’s biggest investors, George Kaiser, then raised between $50,000 and $100,000 for Obama’s 2008 campaign.  Once Obama was elected, Kaiser was a frequent visitor to the White House.

>> The Obama administration, sensing an opportunity to push the Gang Green agenda, agreed to consider a $535 million loan to Solyndra.

>> After reviewing Solyndra’s financial information, private investors, career White House officials, Office of Management and Budget officials, Energy Department officials all warned Obama not to make the loan, as the company’s solar panel business would never work and was doomed to bankruptcy.

>> Despite being warned not to make the loan, the White House plowed ahead, demanding the override of measures intended to protect taxpayers.  The White House made it clear they intended the $535 million loan to be unveiled at what was intended to be a political event.

>> Spearheading the efforts to push the loan over the objections of taxpayer watchdogs was senior Energy Department advisor Steven J. Skinner, who was bound by an ethics agreement to have no involvement in the Solyndra affair?  Why?  His wife works at the law firm that was handed a $2.4 million check to broker the deal.

>> Skinner was named to government position after raising more than $500,000.00 for Obama’s political campaign.  E-mails show Skinner was working with then-Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, and appears to have also been communicating directly with Obama on the matter, in violation of ethics rulesSkinner directly stated the Oval Office wanted the loan approved, despite rules advising against it.

>> Along with the $535 million loan, the White House was pushing plans for a second loan of over $400 million, pushing the bailout for a donor’s failing investment to nearly $1 BILLION.

>> The White House worked around federal laws protecting taxpayers, insisting that should Solyndra declare bankruptcy investors would be repaid before taxpayers.  Among those investors who financially benefitted from the White House’s finagling of federal law include Kaiser, several more Obama donors and the California Democrat Party.

If that doesn’t make you angry (and it should) this will:

In a Nixonian twist, White House insiders are shielding Obama and hiding information that may implicate him in what is looking more and more like a contrived scheme to spend $1 BILLION in taxpayer money on a political event intended to re-elect Obama.

There’s only one reason to put up this much resistance…

   …someone broke the law.

   And what evidence has leaked shows Obama himself was applying the pressure.

The White House wanted to ignore financial guidelines, ignore ethics rules and rewrite the law to give $1 BILLION to a donor’s failing investment and score a political win for Gang Green in the process.

But you and I can’t hold anyone accountable in court unless we can get our hands on the hidden evidence.

You and I know the mainstream media won’t do it.

You and I know Obama’s handpicked Attorney General Eric Holder sure won’t do it.

   It is up to you and me.

I need your help to break through that stonewall.

   Please click here to chip in $10 or more to help me in launch what will have to be a tenacious and hard-nosed legal fight.

I’ve been here before, working with principled conservative law forms and investigators uncovering evidence and blowing the whistle on other White House criminal scandals.

And we got convictions.

Our think tank partner here at American Tradition is also hard at work exposing malfeasance by the “mad made global warming” crowd at NASA and taxpayer-funded falsified research at public universities.

But as more and more information leaks out about Solyndra, it’s looking more and more like laws were broken.

And like any good Chicago mobster, the White House is clamming up.

   Well, I’m tougher.

And if you stand with me, I won’t stop uncovering the truth until we know just who exactly authorized what appears to be a political payoff that broke all the rules and is becoming an increasingly murky legal issue.

   If anyone at the White House broke the law to hand $1 BILLION to Gang Green – they must be held accountable.

   And I mean ANYONE – including Barack Obama.

I’ve worked to convict those behind past White House scandals.

With the truth hidden in a jungle of broken ethics rules, re-rigged federal laws, political campaign cash and stonewalling Chicago operatives, Solyndra is looking to be even worse than any of them.

If the law was broken…

I’m ready and able to get convictions again.

But the media reliably shield Obama.

And any federal or congressional investigation will have Eric Holder and Nancy Pelosi there to stop it.

It’s up to you and I to force the truth out of the White House.

   Click here to chip in $10 or more to help me in this legal fight.

With your help, justice will be done and anyone who broke the law – even if it’s Barack Obama himself – will be held responsible.

Sincerely,

DONALD FERGUSON
Executive Director
American Tradition Partnership

P.S. “We the jury find the defendant, Barack Obama, GUILTY.”

Barack Obama’s Solyndra corruption scandal is growing.  It’s becoming apparent Obama ordered a half-billion dollars be funneled into a campaign donor’s “green” company despite warning by the Justice Department.

But many of the facts remain hidden and Obama won’t turn over the evidence without a fight – a fight you and I know the mainstream media and Attorney General Eric Holder won’t take up.

   Click here to chip in $10 or more to help me mount the fight it will take to release the evidence and hold accountable in court all White House officials who engaged in any illegal activity.

Ferguson requests new Dulles Rail Environmental Impact Statement

Posted on October 11, 2011 by Donald Ferguson

October 11, 2011

Peter M. Rogoff
Federal Transit Administrator
US Department of Transportation
1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE
Washington, DC 20590

John E. Potter
President and Chief Executive Officer
Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority
1 Aviation Circle
Washington, DC 20001-6000

Dear Messrs. Rogoff & Potter:

On behalf of American Tradition Partnership’s large and growing grassroots membership, we request that, prior to committing federal funds to finance portions of the Dulles Rail Phase 2 project, the project partners including the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA), Fairfax County and Loudoun County research and complete a new Dulles Rail Environmental Impact Statement.

Data in the draft Dulles Rail Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), was prepared in 2002 or earlier and a final report issued in 2004.  That EIS is clearly stale and does not reflect physical and socio-economic conditions prevailing in 2011 in the project area or during the timeframe of proposed Phase 2 construction and operations.

For instance, in Loudoun County (LC), housing construction boomed in the period 2000 to 2005, with over 6,000 annual housing unit completions there. In 2009 and 2010, annual LC housing completions averaged only approximately 2,000 units annually. Drastic down-zoning has occurred in LC since 2002. As a result, the projected resident LC population at build-out has been reduced from over 1 million persons forecast in 2002 to the below 500,000 persons forecast today.

The net result of LC downzoning, plus deteriorated economic conditions in the project area, is that the feasibility of Phase 2 Dulles Rail, which did not meet Federal Transit Administration ridership demand criteria in 2002, is now greatly diminished. The probable current rail ridership forecasts for the next 30+ years for Phase 2 are vastly below those made in 2002, when only 10,000 net new transit trips were forecast for all of Dulles Rail, most of which will occur in Phase 1.

The existing EIS failed to evaluate and report on the induced commercial and residential development resulting in the project area from Dulles rail construction and operations. The increased zoning densities provided for under an approved 2010 revised Tysons Corner Comprehensive Plan will require $$Billions in additional taxpayer funding for infrastructure improvements around transit stations.

The EIS failed to investigate financing and funding alternatives to construct and operate Dulles Rail. No public notice and public hearing was ever held on the adopted Phase 1 financial structure either prior to the Full Funding Grant agreement executed on March 10, 2009 or subsequently. Most MWAA Board meetings on Dulles Rail financing and toll increases were held in Executive session. The massive Dulles Toll Road (DTR) toll increases now proposed were first publicly disclosed on June 23, 2009 at a meeting of the Dulles Corridor Advisory Committee (DCAC). The DCAC last met on November 18, 2010 under conditions that clearly demonstrated that MWAA is avoiding timely public access to and disclosure of cost increases and other problems associated with the Dulles Rail project.

Once operations of Phase 1 commence, inevitably some demand shift from autos to transit will occur. However a far larger adverse consequence of drastic DTR toll increases forecasted by MWAA to increase to a range of $15.41 to $17.92 each way by 2043 to finance the rapidly spiraling Dulles Rail costs will push many auto commuters onto Route 7, Route 50, I-66 and local roads, increasing congestion and auto emissions. The financial and travel consequences to those who rely on the DTR to get to work should be included in the new EIS.

We are also concerned with the manner in which outdated cost estimates are being provided to the public. Last month, Mr. Potter told a representative of the Dulles Corridor Users Group that “the July 11, 2011 toll forecasts are outdated because cost estimates have been revised.” Even worse, USDOT officials have repeatedly, willfully and knowingly violated President Obama’s “open government” regulatory policies. A series of six meetings about Phase 2 has occurred since May 2011 between USDOT Secretary Ray LaHood, FTA Administrator Rogoff, MWAA and other Dulles Rail partners. Administrator Rogoff has not responded to repeated requests to attend these meetings by those representing DTR users, who are earmarked by bureaucrats to pay 75% of Phase 2 costs. The USDOT has repeatedly failed to comply with the “open government” regulations by holding private meetings on Phase 2.

ATP is the nation’s largest grassroots-supported advocate for rational energy and environmental policies. Along with our partner American Tradition Institute, known for their current court cases seeking public information from NASA and the University of Virginia, ATP is aggressively seeking transparency and rational policymaking from officials across the country.

The Dulles Rail project and its many problems deeply concern our members, who demand accountability, and local residents, who demand wiser use of their tax dollars.

A new and properly conducted Environmental Impact Statement, based on accurate data and current conditions with all assumptions made disclosed and properly justified, would be an important first step in bringing some measure of transparency to this troubled project.

We look forward to your prompt response and steps taken by USDOT and MWAA to conduct a new Dulles Rail EIS.

Sincerely,

American Tradition Partnership delivers 25,000+ petition signatures to Secretary Clinton

Posted on October 10, 2011 by Donald Ferguson

American Tradition Partnership delivers more than 25,000 petition signatures to Secretary Clinton

Grassroots group, allies tally support from a total of 750,000 Americans

WASHINGTON – The nation’s largest grassroots advocate of rational energy policies stepped up pressure on the Obama administration Monday to approve the Keystone XL pipeline, dropping more than 25,000 signatures supporting the project in the office of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“Our message is loud and clear.  More jobs, lower gas prices,” said American Tradition Partnership Executive Director Donald Ferguson.  “People are sick of environmentalists targeting jobs for elimination.   The safe, clean Keystone XL pipeline creates as many as 342,000 jobs and provides 700,000 barrels of oil a day.”

“The environmentalist movement is a false front funded and created by the multi-million dollar green lobby.  American Tradition Partnership is a real, and fast growing, nationwide grassroots movement.  We’re people-powered,” said Ferguson.

ATP organized and mobilized a nationwide grassroots movement in support of the Keystone pipeline through FuelingJobs.com, a cutting edge interactive website utilizing social media, grassroots networking and interactive voting.  FuelingJobs.com is a project of American Tradition Partnership (ATP,) the nation’s largest and fastest growing advocate of rational, pro-growth energy policies.  ATP is supported entirely by grassroots members.

“No one else is doing this,” said Ferguson. “Our cutting-edge technology is what makes American Tradition Partnership the nation’s most effective grassroots advocate of pro-jobs energy policies.”

“The Keystone pipeline creates jobs and lowers consumers prices, and it’s all privately funded,” said Ferguson. “We can create jobs without the illegal Solyndra scandals and other fake ‘green jobs’ scams.”

American Tradition Partnership and its allies collected signatures from 750,000 Americans urging the Obama administration to approve the pipeline.  That is just a fraction of the total number of signatures, comments and petitions in support of the project.

“Americans and Canadians are united in support of this safe, clean energy and jobs project,” said Ferguson. “President Obama would be smart to listen to the will of the people, not the extremist demands of the environmentalists who are growing wealthy off taxpayer bailouts.”

ATP nearing Keystone signatures goal

Posted on October 5, 2011 by Donald Ferguson

Americans rallying around 342,000-job energy project, despite multi-million dollar enviro opposition campaign

WASHINGTON — With 48 hours left to submit comments and petition signatures supporting the proposed Keystone XL energy pipeline to the State Department, American Tradition Partnership was only 31,728 petitions short of its coalition goal of 750,000 Americans officially affirming support for the project.

“We’ll make it, but only if Americans keep up the pace of signing our petition at http://www.FuelingJobs.com,” said ATP Executive Director Donald Ferguson.

“Americans support the safe, clean Keystone XL jobs pipeline,” said Ferguson.  “People are sick of environmentalists targeting jobs for elimination.  The safe, clean Keystone XL pipeline means 342,000 new jobs and 700,000 barrels a day of oil to U.S. refineries, lowering gas prices.”

FuelingJobs.com is a project of American Tradition Partnership (ATP,) the nation’s largest and fastest growing advocate of rational, pro-growth energy policies.  ATP is supported entirely by grassroots members.

Citizens have until a government deadline of Oct. 6 to go to FuelingJobs.com and sign the petition to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who will decide whether or not to approve the project.

The Keystone project, which has met the highest environmental and safety standards, is being blocked by lobbyists for the multi-million dollar environmentalist lobby.

“Americans need to go to FuelingJobs.com and sign the petition to demand Barack Obama stop blocking this jobs project.  FuelingJobs.com is the only way grassroots Americans can stop the million-dollar lobbyists who are blocking 342,000 jobs and lower gas prices,” said ATP Executive Director Donald Ferguson.

“How heartless can environmentalists be?,” said Ferguson.   “The Keystone pipeline creates 342,000 new jobs and safely, cleanly delivers 700,000 barrels of oil each day to U.S. refineries.  Hollywood actresses and million-dollar ‘green’ lobbyists may be doing great in this economy, but millions of Americans need the jobs and affordable gas this national project creates.  The pipeline is the safest, cleanest form of energy transport there is, and it has easily passed the required environmental statement,” said Ferguson.

Among the activists opposing the jobs pipeline is actress Daryl Hannah, three-time Razzie Award nominee for Worst Supporting Actress and star of such films as the 1999 remake “My Favorite Martian” and the TV movie “Shark Swarm.”

“If Daryl Hannah is promoting something it can’t be good.  I saw ‘Addams Family Reunion.’  I want my money back,” said Ferguson.
