We like to take every Thanksgiving holiday as an opportunity to thank you, one of the hundreds of thousands of Conservatives in the Conservative Daily community, for all you have helped us accomplish over the past year.
This year, we have sent millions of FaxBlasts to Congress putting pressure on Republicans and Democrats alike. This coming month, we are going to be in for the fight of our lives to make sure that the GOP doesn't cave to the Left's demands in the annual spending bill (which now must be passed by December 20).
But today, I wanted to list just some of the victories we have had this year to show you just how powerful your voice can be!
For years, we have put pressure on Congress and the Trump White House to right the wrongs of the Obama administration and save brave American warfighters who have been mistreated by a military justice system plagued by political correctness. At the top of our list were Clint Lorance, Matthew Golsteyn, and Eddie Gallagher.
Your pleas were heard by people like Reps. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) and Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), who in turn put pressure on the Trump administration to pardon these wrongfully convicted and mistreated servicemen. This month, Donald Trump did just that and signed pardons to ensure that all three men were home in time to spend Thanksgiving with their family. This would not have happened if you didn't rise up and demand it.
And when Navy Secretary Richard Spencer was caught conspiring to help an Admiral defy Trump and punish Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher anyway, you rose to the occasion and buried Capitol Hill and the White House in FaxBlasts demanding that these insubordinate officers be removed from their posts. Last week, after fielding calls from Congressmen being driven by your activism, Donald Trump did just that and ordered the Pentagon to terminate Spencer.
This year, we have had major victories on the border wall, defunding Planned Parenthood, pulling the plug on the United Nations, protecting the 2nd Amendment, and fighting back against the Deep State traitors colluding with Democrats to try to remove the President from office. None of this would have been possible without your help and your activism.
Together, we have kept these important issues at the forefront, forcing Republicans to stick to their promises and making Democrats think twice about turning on the American people.
So this Thanksgiving, we are thankful for YOU and everything that you have accomplished this year.
But as I said, the fight isn't over. All of the victories I just mentioned are on the verge of being undone. After passing a short-term spending bill last week, the new deadline for Congress to pass a full appropriations package and avoid a government shutdown is December 20.
Democrats have packed the House versions of the spending bills with amendments designed to roll back all of our conservative accomplishments. Their bills would restore funding to Planned Parenthood, the United Nations, force the Trump administration to impose more gun control on the country, cancel all border wall construction, and reinstate dozens of the Obama administration's most radical policies.
The very future of our country will be decided over the next three weeks and we will need your help more than ever before to stop the Left from dragging us back into the Obama years (and stop the Republicans from rolling over and letting them!)
But that is a fight for tomorrow.
Today, we give thanks. We give thanks to God for the blessings he has given us. We give thanks for the friends, family, and loved ones in our lives. We give thanks to all of the men and women, past and present, who have gave us this grand experiment in representative government and fought to ensure that government of, by, and for people shall not perish from the earth.
But most importantly, we are still thankful, even three years later, that there will NEVER EVER be a President Hillary Clinton!
A Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours,
Joe Otto and the Conservative Daily Team
