Federal Land Grabs Across The Country


Bill Johnson of Temecula, California, claims his property at Vail Lake, the largest privately-owned lake in California, is being threatened by the county, state, and federal governments.

Americans have become increasingly concerned about the federal government’s seizure of privately-held lands and property, especially after the Cliven Bundy incident in Nevada. We have seen our share of that activity with the Ponca-Niobrara Land Protection Plan being pushed by the National Park Service and US Fish and Wildlife.

The South Dakota and Nebraska land grab is being justified for the same reason as the actions being taken in California. The Federal government claims that endangered species are more important than the land of local residents. This activity has drawn wide opposition from Congress including South Dakota and Nebraska US Senators and Congressmen.

Congresswoman Kristi Noem and Senator John Thune to President: It is time to approve Keystone

From KELO-AM Radio in Sioux Falls:

ph20080718022941South Dakota’s Senator John Thune (R) and Congresswoman Kristi Noem (R) are both calling on President Obama to approve the Keystone Pipeline following the release of the fifth environmental impact statement on the energy project.

The latest study says that the pipeline would not significantly increase pollution.

Noem says the President is running out of excuses. Thune says the jobs, investment and energy security the project will provide are clearly in the national interest.

Read it here.

"The President is running out of excuses."

“The President is running out of excuses.”

The Republicans in South Dakota’s Congressional delegation announced that it it time for the president to stop dragging his feet on the Keystone XL Pipeline. And we agree.

The pipeline project recently marked it’s 5 year birthday with nothing but silence from the Administration. And months later, when the environmental impact statement has been issued, we’re still awaiting a decision on moving forward.

Could you imagine if a local business had to wait that long for a building permit? Or a license to sell wine? It’s inconceivable that a project of this magnitude which would provide over 2000 jobs and facilitate the movement of oil in the United States has been stalled for this amount of time.

It’s another symptom of the dysfunction in Washington, and it originates at the top with the President.

GOP and Rushmore PAC Supporter Passes Away – Dinah Abrahamson, 59



Mrs. Dinah Abrahamson, a Crown Heights resident active in the Republican party, passed away suddenly and was buried in Omaha. Mrs. Dinah Abrahamson, a Crown Heights resident, passed away early Tuesday, 14 Teves 5774.


We lost a special person this week. Longtime supporter and Republican activist, Dinah Abrahamson will be missed.

She was 59 and her passing was sudden.

Abrahamson’s unwavering commitment to Yiddishkeit coupled with her political astuteness made her an inspiration to all who knew her.

Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, Mrs. Abrahamson’s maternal grandparents were German Jewish refugees who settled in the State and raised their family there.

From an early age, Abrahamson dedicated her life to serving others and made it a priority to make a Kiddush Hashem everywhere she went, family friends said.

A dedicated member of the Republican party, she was a Nebraska State Central Committee Member and had close ties to Congressman Lee Terry and former Congressman Hal Daub. She also met President George W. Bush.

Wanting to provide her children with a frum education, Abrahamson moved to the Crown Heights neighborhood in Brooklyn in 2007, where she quickly became known for her determination and drive.

A tireless advocate for frum education, she was involved with the Yeshiva Darchei Menachem boys school and the Jewish Technical Vocational School (JTVS), taking students on VIP trips to Washington, DC and arranging extra-curricular activities for them.

She is survived by her daughter, Mrs. Sarah Seigel, her son Yosef Abrahamson, her sister, granddaughter, nieces and nephews and numerous friends and acquaintances whose lives were touched by her.


The levaya was in Omaha, NE. Shiva will be observed from Thursday, Dec. 19th from Mincha until Tuesday morning, Dec. 24 at 1324 Carroll Street #2C (corner Brooklyn Ave.)

Times for davening:
Shacharis 8:30am
Mincha 4:30pm
Maariv bizman

The family requests friends should kindly visit between 2:30pm-8:00pm.

RUSHMORE PAC supports conservative candidate Paul Broun

paul broun

In light of the Obama administration’s capitulation & appeasement to Iran, it is more important than ever to support candidates who will commit themselves to defending our nation, and understand the importance of peace through strength.

Congressman Paul Broun is that kind of candidate. While currently serving as a Congressman from Georgia, Dr. Broun is a candidate for the US Senate, where he will serve as one of only 100 defending our constitution and protecting our country from those who wish it harm.

That is why the RUSHMORE PAC is proud to support his candidacy for the United State’s Senate.

Robocallers “desperate to cover their asses & exact revenge;” No more hiding for Stace Nelson.

This week, a Sioux Falls political activist who has been a campaign footsoldier for US Senate Candidate Stace Nelson was determined by a judge to have acted in bad faith when he attempted to subpoena me as Rushmore PAC chairman, and ordered to pay monetary damages for doing so:

A Sioux Falls political activist has been ordered to pay $500 to two people after a judge found he was being vindictive when he tried to force them to testify at his trial.

A Lake County jury convicted Daniel Willard in August of illegally sending out political robocalls. In his trial, Willard subpoenaed state Sen. Dan Lederman and political blogger Pat Powers to testify, saying they could shed light on allegedly improper actions taken by criminal investigators. Judge Vincent Foley ruled that they did not have to testify.

Lederman, through a political action committee he runs, has filed a civil lawsuit against Willard over the robocalls.


“These guys all think they’re tough guys when they hide behind these anonymous attacks, but when you call them out on it … what we saw is how desperate these guys were to cover their own asses and exact revenge on their political opponents,” Arends said. (Joel Arends, Lederman’s attorney.)

Read the entire article here.

We won in the criminal case. Those acting illegally in the shadows can no longer hide.And the larger civil case against the robocallers is looming, and will becoming much more active in coming months.

Rushmore PAC was drug into the criminal matter because of our civil action against Willard and his unindicted co-conspirator, US Senate Candidate Stace Nelson.  And we’re ready to fight!

Willard was found guilty. But US Senate Candidate Stace Nelson has so far managed to avoid being held accountable for his role. Rushmore PAC has stepped in to demand the real story behind the anonymous attacks which violated South Dakota campaign laws.

Robocaller Daniel Willard’s own attorney stated in court in Willard’s defense that Stace Nelson could have been the one behind it all. However, every time the spotlight is shined on his role in the matter, Stace Nelson has fled.

The South Dakota Attorney General declined to prosecute Nelson, who turned tail and refused to appear in front of a grand jury for the criminal case to provide evidence. In fact, Nelson avoided being served with a papers for Rushmore PAC’s civil action until an undercover officer had to be sent in to serve him with court documents.

Our court action will finally force Nelson to testify, under oath, as to his role in the anonymous attacks and campaign finance fiasco.

We here at the Rushmore PAC believe that voters need to educate themselves and to be very wary of candidates who won’t play by the rules for lower level state legislative races. Because if they can’t play by the rules in Pierre, how are they going to behave in Washington?

We will be keeping you regularly updated on the proceedings of the civil trial as they occur.  Bookmark our website, for more on the Robocall civil trial as it proceeds.

Will Iran’s Deal of the Century, achieve “peace in our time?” Ask Neville.

Are you familiar with the treaty of Munich?  If you aren’t, the Treaty of Munich arose when Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, French Premier Edouard Daladier, and British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain came to an agreement in September of 1938, which virtually handed over Czechoslovakia over to Germany in the name of peace. Upon return to Britain, Chamberlain would declare that the meeting had achieved “peace in our time.”

Although the agreement was to give into Hitler’s hands only the Sudentenland, that part of Czechoslovakia where 3 million ethnic Germans lived, it also handed over to the Nazi war machine 66 percent of Czechoslovakia’s coal, 70 percent of its iron and steel, and 70 percent of its electrical power.

In short, the Munich Pact sacrificed the autonomy of Czechoslovakia for short-term peace, and provided Germany resources to further build itself up in the march towards the conflict we know as World War II.

I bring this up because there was a similar faustian deal reached this past week with the nation of Iran to prevent the enrichment and stockpiling of uranium towards the ultimate goal of nuclear weapons.

Diplomats from the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council (U.S., UK, France, Russia and China, & Germany) met with Iran to attempt to achieve through diplomacy what years of sanctions had not given them.  Unfortunately, the end result seems to have been the capitulation of the Security Council in removing the sanctions which have held Iran – a nation with expansionist dreams – in check. Now, Iran will have the capital to fuel a military engine which has designs on the entire middle east.

As one US Senator, Mark Kirk of Illinois details, Iran gets $3 billion in cash, 9.6 Billion in gold, $5 Billion plus in petrochemicals, $1.3 Billion in automobiles, enough enriched uranium for one bomb, 3000 new centrifuges, and 1 plutonium reactor.  irandeal-web

What does the world get in this bargain? 0 centrifuges dismantled, 0 ounces of uranium shipped out, 0 facilities closed, No delay on plutonium reactor, no stop in missile testing,  no stop in terrorism, and no stop in human rights abuses.

What do our allies think? Israel is up in arms over the deal. Saudia Arabia is equally unhappy. At home, U.S. Senators – Republican and Democrat alike – are howling over the apparent capitulation to an increasingly militaristic Iran, and I can’t say I blame them.

Because just like the 1938 treaty of Munich, we’ve just agreed to provide to Iran an economic engine to build a war machine.  And of course, we’re going to trust that they won’t enrich any Uranium beyond what they’ve promised.

Trust them. They only were a supporter of global terror because we forced them into it.  Really. Or maybe we should change the inflection.


It is said that whether or not the Iranians will honor the treaty will be measured not in days, but in years and the quality of compliance will be debated and judged by history.

“Debated and judged by history”   If Neville Chamberlain could return to earth and offer commentary on how this bargain is looked upon by history, maybe we should ask him in light of how his agreement turned out.

Brunner Pushes For Domestic Energy

20131030-220006.jpg Ryan Brunner, candidate for Commissioner of School and Public Lands wrote a letter to the editor of the Mitchell Republic expressing views on energy taxes.

In order to keep this industry growing and thriving in South Dakota, we must push back on attempts at the federal level to impose onerous taxes and regulations on oil and gas. Additional taxes will cripple this industry and will mean fewer jobs, less investment in education, and slower economic growth in South Dakota. The people of South Dakota know what’s best for our state, not politicians in Washington.

Energy independence is important to our national security – Brunner understands this. We are too reliant on foreign energy from countries that don’t like us. We need to keep that money within the United States so we can create prosperity and jobs right here. Many of these energy jobs will be created in South Dakota. We need more vocal energy proponents in South Dakota that will stand up for an industry that is economically beneficial to our state. Higher taxes and regulations on oil and gas at the federal level will only hurt South Dakota’s economy.

Stop taxing. Stop regulating. Let businesses create jobs and prosperity. Check out Ryan’s letter by clicking here.
