WASHINGTON, DC - The Republican Liberty Caucus has urged Senate Republicans to oppose a bill introduced by Senator Mitch McConnell Tuesday night to extend through 2020 Section 215 of the Patriot Act which governs the NSA’s authority to surveil Americans’ phone records. The current bill governing NSA phone record surveillance expires on June 1st.
BOSTON, MA - The Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) has appointed Nathan Fatal of Amesbury, Massachusetts as its Massachusetts State Coordinator. Fatal will work on recruiting members and raising the organization’s profile in the state as it prepares to petition the national organization for recognition as an official state charter. Once chartered, the organization will hold elections for officer positions and board members.
The National Board of the Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) has voted to name Wayne Allyn Root as Chairman of its National Campaign Committee, as well as Chairman of the RLC Advisory Board. Root, now back to his lifelong Republican roots, was the Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee in 2008, as well as an elected Board member of the Libertarian National Committee, and Chairman of the Libertarian National Campaign Committee.
Attendees at CPAC Friday were treated to 13 minutes of vacuous remarks and awkward one-liners by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, the highlight of which was his announcement that the RNC was now in control of how the presidential debates will be handled in the media during the 2016 presidential cycle. Matt Nye, National Chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus, wrote this open letter to Chairman Priebus in response:
The Republican Liberty Caucus is a 527 voluntary grassroots membership organization dedicated to working within the Republican Party to advance the principles of individual rights, limited government and free markets. Founded in 1991, it is the oldest continuously-operating organization within the Liberty Republican movement.
