I don’t normally sponsor Indie GoGo campaigns, but this is one I can get behind.

The “Help Bring Justen Back” campaign started last night to help conservative activist Justen Charters, 26, seek treatment for an illness he’s had for nearly 3 years. Although he saw an improvement upon his health in recent months, Justen has fallen ill once again.

His mom launched this Indie GoGo campaign to help Justen out with his medical expenses. The goal is to raise $5,000 before April 27, 2013. So far, $2,108 has been raised for the “Help Bring Justen Back” campaign.

Justen is a good friend of mine. We’ve collaborated on several projects together, namely Restoring Courage U.S., Resistance 44, and Rebooting America. He is a great inspiring young man who’s brought together many young people in conservative youth politics. We need him in this fight.

Please donate here and tweet #HelpBringJustenBack to bring awareness to the campaign.

 

Thank you!

Kind regards,

Gabriella

 

 

 

 

Earth to Generation Y: You’ve Been Cheated By Obama’s Administration

Last Saturday, I had the privilege of speaking at Maryland Conservative Action Network’s “Turning the Tides” conference in Annapolis, MD alongside three other young panelists – Brandon Cooper, Brian Meshkin, and Trae Lewis.

Our generation will be hardest hit by Obama’s disastrous economic policies. Therefore, it’s imperative that conservatives bolster their numbers with more young people. Conservatism, not a diluted version of it, will entice people to our side. Any attempts to abandon conservatism will lead to more elections lost and less voter turnout.

Those in attendance enjoyed hearing from us on the panel. Everyone gave wonderful speeches.

My speech beings at the 19:28 mark.  Let me know what you think!

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” – Ronald Reagan

Saying Goodbye to 2012 is Bittersweet

272327108687074197_TYws738G_b

I hope all of you are enjoying the holiday season with Chanukah, Christmas, and New Year’s celebrations. As we say goodbye to 2012 and hello to 2013, I offer you my final blog post of the year.

This year will go down in history as one of the most eventful years to date. Somehow President Obama – arguably one of the most corrupt and dangerous presidents in American history – clinched a second term in November. SCOTUS ruled  the individual mandate provision in Obamacare constitutional as a tax. Shockingly, but not surprisingly, Mitt Romney lost the election. Our side witnessed devastating losses in U.S. Senate contests, as well. Unemployment rose. The country cared more about birth control politics than preserving free enterprise this election year.  And the list goes on and on.

2012 was not a good year for America. Don’t kid yourselves if you think higher taxes, the implementation of Obamacare, and other policies ushered in by this administration are going to benefit us. They’ll incur more harm than good.

If you want to be encouraged for the battle ahead, check out Rebooting America founder Justen Charters in his viral “Six Trillion Dollar Man” music video for ChristinePAC. Share it with your friends and family.

Although there’s much to complain about 2012 and the consequences surrounding Obama’s re-election, I recognize that much good came out of this year. I graduated from UCSD with a B.A. in Political Science on the three-year track in June. Shortly afterward I moved from Southern California to Northern Virginia to intern at the Media Research Center’s CNSNews division.  I then got hired to work for the Leadership Institute as the Northeast Regional Field Coordinator, which has been a great experience thus far. Working with conservative students is fun, hard work, and great. I’m also grateful for wonderful co-workers, and find myself incredibly happy with the work I’m doing. I’m very blessed for gainful employment!

I was also graced with many opportunities in 2012. I was a youth speaker at several conferences, appeared on many radio shows, and continued to write for various conservative media outlets. I befriended and strengthened friendships with great people and fellow young conservative activists. I met many  people who I look up to including Michelle Malkin, Ken Cuccinelli, Mark Levin, Dana Loesch, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), and incoming U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), to name a few. I got to explore this country more and ventured to Texas, New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Massachusetts for the first time. FreePAC Dallas was a blast, and my various trips to the Northeast to meet with students were equally worthwhile. I also co-founded another youth movement – Resistance 44- with my good friend Justen Charters and gauged young people with our conservative message.

2012 wouldn’t be complete if it weren’t for my family, friends, and fellow activists. Thank you for keeping my spirits up. I’m thankful for all of you and your continual support!

Despite impending tax hikes on all Americans come January 1st (thank you, President Obama and Congress), Americans should look forward to 2013.

-Pro-life? Attend 40th Annual March for Life event. The march will be taking place on January 25, 2013 in downtown Washington, D.C.

-President Obama and Democrats in the U.S. Senate are threatening to enforce gun bans. If this happens, apply for a concealed carry weapon (CCW) permit. Check your state government’s website on how to apply for CCW permits in your state. Additionally, sign-up to be a member of the NRA, Gun Owners of America, and/or National Association for Gun Rights.

-If you live here in the Commonwealth of Virginia, you have the opportunity to help pivot our state red and elect Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli as our next governor. Outside support is also appreciated. This is the first and most important electoral contest our side must win. (Visit Cuccinelli’s website, sign up to be a campaign volunteer, and donate money to his campaign.)

-Get involved with the National School Choice Week movement. Next year’s event takes place during the week of January 27, 2013 – February 2, 2013. This is how we outreach to people.

-All conservatives – especially young people – must get involved in Rebooting America. If you liked National Papa John’s Appreciation Day, you’ll like our future events.

-Start reading blogs featuring young conservatives on Counter Cultured, Young Cons, Values and Capitalism, and Acculturated.

-Defend Israel and support groups like CUFI, Zionist Organization of America, StandWithUs, and Young Jewish Conservatives.

-Defend free enterprise and make the moral case for it. Don’t support higher taxes.

-Champion family values and undermine the welfare society.

-And most of all breathe, exercise, eat healthy, travel the country, be frugal, surround yourself with good people, and don’t succumb to pressure. Take the occasional break from politics and your electronics to enjoy the world around you.

What will I be up to in 2013? Here’s what you can expect from me:

  • Speaking engagements: I’m scheduled to speak at a CUFI on Campus’ SALT conference panel on student activism in San Antonio, TX on January 3, 2013, which is followed by my participation in “The Cheated Generation” panel at Maryland Conservative Action Network’s Turning the Tides conference on January 12, 2013 in Annapolis, MD. More appearances are likely throughout the year.
  • Look out for an e-book featuring yours truly: I, along with other young conservatives, wrote a chapter for an e-book slated for release in March 2013.
  • National appearance: Can’t reveal this yet, but you’ll be seeing me on the national stage in mid-to-late January.
  • Blogging: I’ll continue blogging for CNSNews.com, Counter Cultured, Right Wing News, and make my debut on The Blaze. Some other opportunities might come up. I’ll keep you posted.
  • Work: Work is my first priority, so it’ll come first before outside activities. Nevertheless, I’ll be documenting my travels, crazy professors, and leftist abuses in the Northeast if anything comes up. If you’re a student in the Northeast looking to be active on campus, please contact me here.
  • Rebooting America: I’ll be more involved. You should join the movement too.
  • Twitter: Follow my musings and tweets @Gabby_Hoffman.

L’chaim and cheers to a happy, healthy, and productive 2013!

Young Conservatives Mobilize, Join Resistance 44 to Counter the Left’s Dangerous Policies

Are you tired of the Left’s disastrous policies? Dissatisfied with high youth employment? Tired of crony capitalism? Unhappy with moral relativism? Want to change the course of politics? Join Resistance 44!

Justen Charters and I started this movement two months after seeing the need to create an outlet for young conservatives. After much thought and consideration, we came up with Resistance 44 to “resist” the leftist policies that are ruining this country.

Pray for Justen Charters’ Health This Christmas Season

My friend and fellow activist Justen Charters, who hails from Oregon, is in need of many prayers and wishes this holiday season. For over 17 months, he has been battling a debilitating (albeit unknown) condition that has take a toll on his health.

Charters is an upstanding young man. At 24, he has accomplished quite a bit on the activist front.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with him on Restoring Courage U.S. – which was a national grassroots movement I spearheaded with Nicole Pearce of UMass – Boston to stand with Israel last summer in conjunction with Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Courage” events in Israel.

Justen is a phenomenal activist, as well. He has done a great deal exposing “Occupy Portland” and similar leftists shenanigans in Oregon. He should be applauded for his work. More importantly, we need him to get better to continue his work!

This Christmas season, if you can, please pray for him and his health.

Also, please spread his video around and possibly suggest him to a doctor that could diagnose his condition. Thank you!

AFL-CIO Hires Useful Idiots to Attend #OccupyPortland

It is apparent that the “Occupy Wall Street” is growing increasingly dangerous with each day. Fox News Channel reported this morning about “Occupy Portland” and the dire situation there.

Here’s another video from Dear Citizen’s Justen Charters:

I met this protester on eviction day for Occupy Portland. He tried to hand me a 99% sign. Because the Union told him too.
