AMERICANS FOR FEDERALISM REACH
ACCORD WITH FEDERALIST PARTY OF AMERICA ON
NEUTRAL TAX POLICY INITIATIVE

 

USA-July 20…The Federalist Party of America (FPA) today announced an agreement with Americans for Federalism to open expansive policy discussions about The Neutral Tax, a key Americans for Federalism policy proposal.

The Neutral Tax would eliminate all direct federal taxes and replace them with a uniform, flat federal tax on the gross government revenue of each state. Each state would regain complete control of its own tax policy, while still funding the federal government. Many have praised the Neutral Tax as a breakthrough tax policy idea.

“The Federalist Party of America has demonstrated an ability to communicate the many benefits of federalism, and its messaging resonates with people of differing ideologies,” said Neutral Tax creator, Tom Ryan. “These efforts will increase discussion about the proper role of the federal government in taxation.”

“The Neutral Tax is an ingenious idea worth serious deliberation,” said Federalist Party of America Chairman pro tem William F. B. O’Reilly. “Without being wedded to a single tax policy reform, the FPA is naturally inclined to support a well thought out tax alternative that puts power back in the hands of individual taxpayers, communities, and states. One look at the national balance sheet—$21 trillion in debt and counting—demands that we seek new, sensible, and sustainable ways to fund and tame a federal behemoth that’s threatening the very future of young Americans.” 

The relationship between Americans for Federalism and the Federalist Party of America’s is a continuation of FPA’s long-range goal of moving the nation onto a more sustainable political, economic, and sociological path, Mr. O’Reilly said.

The Federalist Party of America is a 501(c)(4) organization dedicated to strengthening American communities by restoring the balance and limits of government[s]. It believes that the best government is the government closest to the people. It advocates that solutions to our common challenges first be sought at the lowest levels of government possible. The Federalist Party of America, which will not pursue ballot status in 2018, educates and organizes American citizens around the country’s original governing principles in an effort to chart a clear, prosperous, and sustainable course forward for American families and the nation as a whole.

FEDERALIST PARTY OF AMERICA TO
SPONSOR ‘FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE’
—–
Bill O’Reilly and Liz Noyer Feld to Host Weekly,
Nationwide KLRNRadio Political Podcast
—–
For Immediate Release to Launch in August

 

USA-July 11…Longtime political collaborators William F.B. O’Reilly and Liz Noyer Feld will host a new, weekly nationwide podcast called ‘For Immediate Release’ on KLRNRadio.com beginning in August. O’Reilly is Federalist Party of America (FPA) Chairman (pro tem), the show’s sponsor. He is a founding partner of The November Team, a political consultancy based in New York, and covers state and national politics as a columnist and television commentator. Liz Noyer Feld has spent decades in the political and public policy arenas beginning with the Reagan-Bush Administration, as a Mayor in Westchester County, NY, and most recently as leader of two national advocacy organizations.

For Immediate Release will air on Mondays at 10:00 PM EST beginning in August. The FPA-sponsored program will be produced by KLRNRadio.com Programming Director Rick Robinson who has successfully launched a series of political talk shows online and in terrestrial markets across America.

“We are excited to partner with Liz and Bill, and with our friends at the FPA, to promote their message of freedom, common sense, and sustainable government reforms that work and honor the Constitution at the same time,” Mr. Robinson said. “KLRNRadio.com is especially pleased to learn about the caliber of guests For Immediate Release plans to bring to our listeners around the country, indeed, around the world.”

“Liz is one of the most brilliant political communicators in America,” Mr. O’Reilly said. “Her insights are as broad as they are deep, having worked in the White House and two presidential campaigns, as well as in local and state politics. Her leadership at the highest levels of the private and not-for-profit sectors give Liz a practical grounding that so many in elected office, especially, are missing today.  I am thrilled to be sharing a microphone with her.”

Ms. Noyer Feld, a mother of three who served two terms as mayor in New York’s Westchester County, has been president of two major national healthcare advocacy organizations, and she served as Senior Vice President of Communications for Nickelodeon, and Director of News Information at ABC News.

“Like Bill and many others friends, I am shocked that we are leaving our kids with a mess of our own creation,” Ms. Noyer Feld said.  “Bill and I had fathers who fought Nazis and enemies half-way around the world to keep us free and safe. Then they came home to raise families, serve their communities, and build a great country.  Now, we are drowning in debt, have third world transportation, cowardly career politicians, and can’t have a civil debate about how to tackle any of it. We have an obligation and an opportunity to help change that. Neither Bill nor I have all the answers, but I’m confident we have a lot of the right questions to ask our guests and each other. This will be my first time hosting a radio program, and it is a privilege to do it alongside someone as respected and informed as Bill.”

For Immediate Release hopes to engage listeners with reasoned conversations about the American body politic and its challenges, featuring leading figures in the political and news industries in a non-combative discussion format.

06/23/2018 Press Release: SHANE HAZEL, COMBAT VETERAN AND FORMER CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE, ACCEPTS ROLE AS POLICY ADVISOR ON CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM WITH FEDERALIST PARTY OF AMERICA

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: press@federalistpartyofamerica.org

FORMER CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE FOR GA 07 AND LIBERTY MOVEMENT LEADER, SHANE HAZEL
ACCEPTS ROLE AS POLICY ADVISOR WITH FEDERALIST PARTY OF AMERICA

 

USA-June 23, 2018…The Federalist Party of America (FPA) today announced former Georgia District 7 congressional candidate and Liberty Movement leader, Shane Hazel has accepted a role as Policy Advisor on Criminal Justice Reform.

Mr. Hazel, a decorated Marine combat veteran with an International Affairs degree from the University of Georgia, founded Liberty Georgia in 2015 with a mission to educate Americans on the Constitution and its application to promote individual Liberty and restore the division of power between federal, state and local governments. In 2017, he felt called by his faith to expose his US Representative’s abysmal failed voting and spending record. As a political newcomer and spending only $70k, Shane’s highly motivated team of volunteers polled over 28% of the vote gaining national attention.

“As an advocate for individual liberty and a federal government restrained to its role as defined by the Constitution of The United States of America, I am proud to accept this role with Federalist Party of America. Our criminal justice system, at every level of government, has failed. We are not the land of the free, we are the land of criminalization and incarceration, as the US ranks number one in the world in the total number of people incarcerated.”

“Never ending unconstitutional laws, bureaucratic policies and powerful lobbies have targeted individuals in our country which can least afford a proper defense. I am excited to present Constitutional and free market-based solutions through this platform with the FPA. Removing the federal government from our daily lives must include a complete criminal justice reform. It is important to work with like-minded individuals and groups to increase education and awareness of this issue.” said, Mr. Hazel.

“The Federalist Party of America is fortunate to have Shane Hazel involved in the federalist movement on an issue of such magnitude,” said FPA Chairman pro-tem William F. B. O’Reilly. “Shane’s passion and command on criminal justice reform issues will be of great value to our long-term mission of effective, sustainable government for Americans. This is a another very good day for multiplying our forces.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

KENNETH MOLTNER, ATTORNEY AND LEADER IN NEW YORK CITY TERM LIMIT DEFENSE

JOINS FEDERALIST PARTY OF AMERICA BOARD OF DIRECTORS

 

USA-May 17…The Federalist Party of America (FPA) today announced that accomplished New York City attorney and public policy advisor Kenneth Moltner has joined its Board of Directors.

Mr. Moltner, a trusts and estates attorney with a degree from the New York University School of Law, is a long-time community activist in New York City where he successfully served as spokesman for New Yorkers for Term Limits. Mr. Moltner was appointed to the 2010 New York City Charter Revision Commission by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, and served as Chairman of Manhattan Community Board Eight. He is a recipient of a New York City Council Proclamation for Community Service.

“As an advocate for term limits, at every level of government, and an ardent believer that the best government decisions are made when they are made closest to the people and the communities they affect, I am proud to become a member of the Federalist Party of America board,” Mr. Moltner said. “Solutions to our most pressing problems aren’t in Washington, they are in our communities, and I will do everything in my power to help the FPA strengthen those communities over time. That effort must and will begin with Washington term limits.”

“The Federalist Party of America is deeply fortunate to have Ken Moltner involved in the federalist movement at such a key operational level,” said FPA Chairman pro-tem William F. B. O’Reilly. “Ken’s legal and public policy expertise, including his successful defense of term limits in New York, will be instrumental to our long-term vision of effective, sustainable government for Americans. This is a very good day for our growing ranks.”

04/30/2018 Press Release: FEDERALIST PARTY OF AMERICA ANNOUNCES SUPPORT FOR THE CONVENTION OF STATES INITIATIVE TO IMPOSE TERM LIMITS ON MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: press@federalistpartyofamerica.org

FEDERALIST PARTY OF AMERICA ANNOUNCES

SUPPORT FOR THE CONVENTION OF STATES INITIATIVE

TO IMPOSE TERM LIMITS ON MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

 

USA-Apr 30…The Federalist Party of America (FPA) today announced its support for an Article V Convention of States to impose term limits on members of Congress, urging other political reform organizations, at the state and national level, to do the same. (The FPA has set up a special SMS platform for Americans who wish to know more about this effort: Text “TermLimits” to 53445.)

There are two methods of passing a Constitutional Amendment in the U.S. The first requires a two-thirds vote in each house of Congress, followed by ratification from three-quarters of the states. The second, a Convention of States, can be called if two-thirds of state legislatures agree to hold a Convention. Proposed amendments emanating from such a Convention would then require ratification from three-quarters of the states. Article V is an original part of the U.S. Constitution that has never been used.

Eighty-two (82%) percent of Americans favor congressional term limits, according to recent polling, including 89% of Republicans, 76% of Democrats, and 83% of political independents. The Republican Party’s official platform calls for term limits, and 32 states—64%—currently have Republican governors.

“The Federalist Party of America believes that congressional term limits are essential to getting this country onto a fiscally and politically sustainable long-term path,” said FPA chairman pro tem Bill O’Reilly. “The Article V Convention of States is a safety cord bequeathed to us by our founders for times when the People need to rein in Washington overreach. This is such a time.”

The FPA announced that it will work with like-minded organizations seeking an Article V Convention.

“Bringing about an Article V Convention is a herculean task, but many committed Americans have been laboring in trenches for years to make this happen,” Mr. O’Reilly continued. “We salute their patriotism and formally pledge allegiance to their cause today. Washington, under both major parties, is damaging our General Welfare as is. This cannot stand.”

03/11/2018 Press Release: PRESIDENT TRUMP REPRESENTS BEST CHANCE EVER TO ADVANCE CONGRESSIONAL TERM LIMITS

FEDERALIST PARTY OF AMERICA: PRESIDENT TRUMP REPRESENTS BEST CHANCE EVER TO ADVANCE CONGRESSIONAL TERM LIMITS
—-
Says President Can Unify Nation Behind Singularly Popular Reform
—-
82% of Americans—of All Backgrounds—Support Trump’s Position

 
March 11…President Donald Trump’s willful leadership style and outside-the-beltway thinking represents a unique opportunity for the 82% of Americans who now support congressional term limits, the Federalist Party of America™(FPA) today said. Term limits, conversely, offer President Trump a rare unifying issue for Americans to rally behind, and an extraordinary legacy opportunity for his presidency.

The nascent FPA, which seeks to re-empower American communities and move Washington onto a sustainable spending path in the long-term, urged President Trump to honor his campaign promise by promoting from the bully pulpit the long-sought reform, and by using his extraordinary leverage as President to drive it through.

Americans of diverse ethnic and ideological backgrounds are in overwhelming agreement with President Trump on term limits, according to a January McLaughlin & Associates survey, with 89% of Republicans; 76% of Democrats; 83% of independents; 72% of Hispanics; 70% of African-Americans, and 86% of white voters in favor of a 28th Amendment that would limit the number of terms congressman and senators may serve. (The 22nd Amendment limits presidential terms to two.) Four out of five voters surveyed in the McLaughlin & Associate poll said it is important for President Trump to “keep his promise” on the congressional term limits issue, as well.

The FPA further pointed out that passing a term limits amendment is the stated platform position of the Republican Party, which currently holds majorities in both the Senate and the House of Representatives.

“Consensus on an issue of such national significance is unheard of in modern day American politics—almost as unheard of as a president free of Washington self-interest and a House and Senate controlled by ostensibly pro-term limit leadership,” said FPA chairman pro-tem Bill O’Reilly. “Indeed, the stars may be aligned for term limits under this president in a way that may never occur again. We urge President Trump to seize the moment; it’s right there for the taking.”

The last time congressional term limits were seriously advanced was in 1996. In that 104th Congress, Republican leaders forced a vote in both houses of Congress, while holding a substantially slimmer House majority than they do today — 230-204 vs. 241-194, respectively.

There are two methods for passing a Constitutional Amendment in the U.S. The first requires a two-thirds vote in each house of Congress, followed by a ratification by three-quarters of the states. The second method would require two-thirds of the states to call for an Article V convention of states. Proposed amendments emanating from such a convention would similarly require affirmative votes from three-quarters of the states for ratification.

The Federalist Party of America ™ will remain a non-ballot party throughout 2018, allowing Democrats, Republicans, and independents to become members without changing their current party affiliation.

FEDERALIST PARTY OF AMERICA: HEY GOP; WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT TERM LIMITS PLEDGE?

USA, Feb. 19…The Federalist Party of America, an emerging national political organization seeking congressional term limits, the orderly downsizing of the federal bureaucracy, and the subsequent strengthening of American communities, today called on Republican leaders in the House and Senate to honor a pledge made at the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland to advance federal term limits.

The Republican Party ostensibly favors a Constitutional Amendment to impose congressional term limits — see 2016 RNC Platform language below — but it’s done nothing to advance the issue since 1996. In that 104th Congress, Republican leaders forced a vote in both houses of Congress, while holding a substantially slimmer House majority than they do today — 230-204 vs. 241-194, respectively. Three quarters of Americans now support congressional term limits, according to the most recent Gallup (75%) and Rasmussen (74%) polling on the issue, with a large majority of Republicans and Democrats agreeing.

“Republicans in Washington must keep their word to the American people by putting a term limits amendment bill on the floor of both houses for a vote posthaste,” said Federalist Party of America chairman Bill O’Reilly. “The American people, of all political backgrounds, deserve to know where their representatives stand on what may be the single unifying issue before our nation today. There are no excuses for inaction.”

There are two methods for passing a Constitutional Amendment in the U.S. The first requires a two-thirds vote in each house of Congress, followed by a ratification by three-quarters of the states. The second method would require two-thirds of the states to call for an Article V convention of states. Proposed amendments emanating from such a convention would similarly require affirmative votes from three-quarters of the states for ratification.

“How can we expect different results out of Washington when we keep sending the same people back there year after year?,” Mr. O’Reilly continued. “The Republican Party has long acknowledged this truism at election time, only to park it on a back burner the next January. It’s time for every member of Congress to put his or her cards on the table. Where do you stand on federal term limits, “aye” or “nay”?

From the 2016 Republican Party Platform

Advancing Term Limits

“Our national platform has repeatedly endorsed term limits for Members of Congress. In response, the GOP Leadership in 1996 brought to a vote, in both the House and Senate, a constitutional amendment. It failed to secure the necessary two-thirds vote in the House, where 80 percent of Republicans voted for it and 80 percent of Democrats voted against it. Every Senate Republican voted to allow a vote on term limits, but the Democrats killed it by a filibuster. Blocked by that opposition, Republicans sought other ways to modernize the national legislature. They set term limits for their own committee chairs and leadership positions, and by law they required Congress to live by the same rules it imposes on others. To make further progress, to advance a constitutional amendment for consideration by the states, we must expand the current Republican majorities in both chambers.”

FEDERALIST PARTY OF AMERICA NAMES WILLIAM F. B. O’REILLY CHAIRMAN PRO TEM

Feb. 15…The Federalist Party of America today named long-time conservative political strategist and columnist William F. B. O’Reilly, 54,as its first national chairman pro tem.

The Federalist Party of America is a just-launched 501 c 4 nonprofit organization created by Americans frustrated by Washington’s failures and disillusioned with the national Republican and Democratic parties. The pro-federal-term-limits party seeks to strengthen individual American communities by restoring the balance and limits of government[s] in America that are expressly delineated in the Constitution. Mr. O’Reilly, who lives in New York, outlined the new party’s philosophical underpinnings in a piece published Thursday on National Review Online.

The Federalist Party of America will not pursue ballot status in 2018, focusing its first-year efforts and resources on membership recruitment and long-term planning. That considered decision allows Republicans, Democrats, and independents to join the Federalist Party of America while maintaining their current party affiliations — for the time being.

“The Federalist Party of America is thrilled to name Bill O’Reilly as its first national chairman pro tem,” said Federalist Party of America spokesman Joe Brigati. “Bill has been in the American political arena for 30 years, and his hard work and fair play have earned him the respect of political observers of all political backgrounds. We will be grateful for his expertise and guidance throughout this first critical year of operation.”

All Federalist Party leaders are term-limited to a single year.

“It’s time to face the facts: Neither the Republican nor Democratic party are ever going shrink the federal government enough to save our children from the time bomb of debt we’ve lit for them, Mr. O’Reilly said. “Our elected representatives are good people for the most part, but the tug of self-interest and careerism once in office precludes them from doing what’s necessary to get America back onto a sustainable course — returning powers and responsibilities seized by Washington to states and localities. I was proud to be asked to serve by this devoted group of grassroots Americans, and I pray I can help the Federalist Party of America achieve principled success and longevity.”
