Organize Others to Stand Up in Your State

Last month, we announced that we were looking for dedicated volunteers to join our Stand Up Republic State Leaders program. The response from enterprising men and women just like you was remarkable. We are almost ready to select our candidates, but we are doing one more push before we select our first group of leaders.

 

Friend,

Last month, we announced that we were looking for dedicated volunteers to join our Stand Up Republic State Leaders program. The response from enterprising men and women just like you was remarkable. We are almost ready to select our candidates, but we are doing one more push before we select our first group of leaders.

If you have not applied to be a State Leader yet, please apply today!

As a State Leader, you will help us build SUR in your home state, creating a network of Americans dedicated to promoting liberty, equality and truth in America at a time when these values face increased threats. This is a leading volunteer role in our grassroots program, and state leaders will work directly with the SUR senior team to:

  • Help grow and organize SUR's grassroots network at the state level
  • Help establish a state-level SUR leadership team
  • Organize members for various activities including call-in campaigns and other efforts to influence state and national elected officials on key issues
  • Organize and hold meetings with state and local SUR members
  • Coordinate with SUR and other state leaders to organize regional events
  • Manage state-level social media pages

If you are willing to join us in this important work, apply today.

As we continue to grow, we will need more and more volunteers at our side. But you could be one of the first to help organize our network and spread our message. This is a unique opportunity and one we hope you will consider.

Friend, your fellow Americans are standing up. Will you?

— Evan and Mindy

Fusion GPS Opens Up 
The Hill — Jan. 10, 2018
The Hill talks about the Fusion GPS testimony, and some of the implications for the Russia investigation. Remarkably, it seems that Christopher Steele, a British spy, seemed far more concerned about Russian influence in American politics than the GOP representatives charged with protecting the nation. At this point, we have more questions than answers, but the conduct of GOP leadership remains disturbing.

Bannon is Purged 
The New York Times — Jan. 9, 2018
Steve Bannon has lost everything after his public statements that the Trump campaign’s meeting with Russian representatives in 2016 was likely “treasonous.” In a party where loyalty to Trump is the only relevant quality for advancement, this kind of thinking was clearly unacceptable. This also proves that Bannon was largely irrelevant all along – the Trump movement is still wholly centered on Trump’s personality.

Why Never Trump? 
Foreign Policy — Jan. 3, 2018
Center-right opposition to Trump is not about his policies, Max Boot says, it’s “about his unrelenting assault on the norms of American democracy.” One year into the Trump administration, one of America's most prolific foreign policy experts tells why he's unapologetically opposed to the Trump administration for the damage it's causing to America's values and place in the world. Despite failing to implement some of his campaign's isolationist agenda priorities the President has done immeasurable damage to the norms of democracy.

Governance  

Big Trouble from Wealthy China 
The Wall Street Journal — Jan. 9, 2018
China’s influence in the West has grown tremendously in the past decade. Western countries and companies cannot afford to alienate the Chinese market, and this profit motive often leads to action intended to placate China’s Communist Party. With many politicians and businesses compromised by their ties to Chinese money, it’s past time to realize that such influence may be a challenge to our sovereignty.

Leading Through the Chaos 
The Weekly Standard — Jan. 5, 2018
Bill Kristol argues that amidst the hubbub and confusion of the Trump Administration, political and other leaders still have the power to make real impacts on the country and the world. It's not just members of Congress (though their leadership would be helpful), but citizens must also stand up to help navigate the country in a better direction. Hey, we couldn't agree more.

Russia  

The Baltic Front 
The Daily Beast — Jan. 9, 2018
One of the more egregious aspects of the administration’s kowtowing to the Kremlin has been its treatment of our NATO allies. Early in 2017, one official made a proposal to withdraw US forces from the Baltics, a move high on Putin’s wish list. The United States must stand with its allies in Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, especially as the Kremlin seeks to return them to Russian domination.

America in Retreat 
Politico Magazine — Jan. 2018
Susan Glasser recaps a year of disastrous international relations missteps for the Trump administration, which has been remarkably uninformed and incompetent. Jared Kushner exemplifies the general miasma of ignorant hubris when he proclaims that “the past doesn’t count.” One has to wonder – what exactly qualifies Jared Kushner to have any role in American foreign policy at all? And does anyone in this administration care about the immense damage they’re doing to the United States abroad?

Generation Trump 
The Atlantic — Jan. 2, 2018
The takeover of the Republican Party by Trump loyalists has not only degraded the party; it has effectively served to alienate the majority of its potential youth vote. While some revel in the “trivialization of politics” represented by Trump, most remain disheartened at the reduction of the party to little more than a nihilistic troll farm.

The People vs. Theocracy 
The New York Times — Jan. 2, 2018
Recent protests throughout Iran have rocked the theocratic regime, with potential geopolitical implications throughout the region. From the New York Times comes a quick primer to get you up to speed on the rising level of popular discontent with the regime, and the frustration many Iranians feel at the ostentatious wealth and power of their religious leaders.

Rule of Law  

Trump Fought the Law 
Lawfare Blog — Jan. 1, 2018
The president’s war on the “deep state” is based on a lie. Trump backers have latched onto this concept as a convenient way to smear the idea of impartial rule of law. Yet, the fact that this is a lie does not mitigate the real damage done to law enforcement by this quixotic crusade. Ben Wittes explains why this is important, and some of the long-term ramifications of Trump’s war on his own government.

Technology  

Blockchain Migration 
Financial Times — Jan. 1, 2018
Blockchain and cryptocurrencies are all the rage right now, despite few people understanding how they work. Even the Kremlin is jumping on board, apparently considering the use of a state-sponsored cryptocurrency to evade Western sanctions. This novel use of emerging technology raises interesting questions on the long-term stability of cryptocurrency, and its potential use as a tool in international economic competition.

The GOP Civil War 
The Atlantic — Dec. 19, 2017
David Frum confronts what has essentially become an anti-anti-Trump faction of the GOP — those who are unable to defend the president, but are perfectly willing to attack those who attack him. Frum points out that the conservatism these critics see themselves as defending is changing, perhaps irrevocably, and that actions taken by the president must be considered in the context of the overall forest fire that is his presidency.

Citizenship  

Equity by Force 
Quillette — Dec. 18, 2017
An essay in Quillette breaks down some of the factors contributing to recent campus protests at Evergreen State University. The upheavals garnered international headlines, primarily marveling at the consistent capitulation of the administration to increasingly unreasonable student demands. Tribalism and group hatred have no place in a democratic society, regardless of their ideological sources.

Governance  

Hail Caesar? 
Lawfare — Dec. 17, 2017
Lawfare takes a look at the changing relationship between the military and civilian leadership in American democracy. The military is now the most trusted public institution in America, and the president loves to surround himself with generals to use that legitimacy to bolster his own. Yet, as Raphael Cohen warns, we should consider the consequences of increased military visibility in civilian administrative roles.

China’s Senator 
The Washington Post — Dec. 17, 2017
Senator Steve Daines has been particularly cozy with China, and the Washington Post analyzes the rationale behind this odd relationship. This particular example is a good case study for how authoritarian regimes can influence individual legislators in an open society like our own, and how our leadership may be susceptible to manipulation by foreign powers in the future.

The Investigation  

Prepping the Battlefield 
Politico — Dec. 19, 2017
Rumors have been swirling about a possible move against the Mueller investigation, and the president – not exactly known for his honesty - recently sought to head them off by directly denying any intention to fire the special counsel. However, the intent of the campaign to delegitimize the investigation might also be to prime the Trump base to reject its findings entirely, and to put their faith unquestioningly in their leader.
