Young Americans for Freedom (YAF)

Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) SUGGEST TO FRIENDS! Students, you can provide a bold alternative on campus and ensure your peers are introduced to conservative ideas by launching a YAF chapter at your school. Twitter: @yaf www.yaf.org
You can fundamentally change your campus! Are you tired of liberal ideas dominating your campus? YAF chapters bring together students to advocate for individual freedom, free enterprise, limited government, a strong national defense, and traditional values through hosting speakers, organizing campus initiatives, posting flyers, and more! YAF chapters provide a visible presence for the Conservative Movement, educate fellow students, and encourage others to become active.

Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is a project of Young America's Foundation. Young Americans for Freedom takes no position on particular legal or public policy initiatives nor does it engage in political activity. Any expressions of opinions are those of the author or authors. Young Americans for Freedom was founded in 1960 at the home of William F. Buckley by 100 young conservatives who authored its founding document: the Sharon Statement. Throughout its history, YAF has worked to advance conservative ideas on college and high school campuses. YAF helped advance the careers of Barry Goldwater and President Ronald Reagan who first joined YAF's advisory board in 1962 and eventually became the honorary national chairman. Today, YAFers lead or hold prominent positions in many organizations within the Conservative Movement including Young America's Foundation, the National Rifle Association, the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute, the Fund for American Studies, and many others.

Mission: Sharon Statement "Adopted in Conference, at Sharon, Connecticut, on September 11, 1960." IN THIS TIME of moral and political crises, it is the responsibility of the youth of America to affirm certain eternal truths. WE, as young conservatives believe: THAT foremost among the transcendent values is the individual's use of his God-given free will, whence derives his right to be free from the restrictions of arbitrary force; THAT liberty is indivisible, and that political freedom cannot long exist without economic freedom; THAT the purpose of government is to protect those freedoms through the preservation of internal order, the provision of national defense, and the administration of justice; THAT when government ventures beyond these rightful functions, it accumulates power, which tends to diminish order and liberty; THAT the Constitution of the United States is the best arrangement yet devised for empowering government to fulfill its proper role, while restraining it from the concentration and abuse of power; THAT the genius of the Constitution - the division of powers - is summed up in the clause that reserves primacy to the several states, or to the people in those spheres not specifically delegated to the Federal government; THAT the market economy, allocating resources by the free play of supply and demand, is the single economic system compatible with the requirements of personal freedom and constitutional government, and that it is at the same time the most productive supplier of human needs; THAT when government interferes with the work of the market economy, it tends to reduce the moral and physical strength of the nation, that when it takes from one to bestow on another, it diminishes the incentive of the first, the integrity of the second, and the moral autonomy of both; THAT we will be free only so long as the national sovereignty of the United States is secure; that history shows periods of freedom are rare, and can exist only when free citizens concertedly defend their rights against all enemies… THAT the forces of international Communism are, at present, the greatest single threat to these liberties; THAT the United States should stress victory over, rather than coexistence with this menace; and THAT American foreign policy must be judged by this criterion: does it serve the just interests of the United States?

CAUGHT: Leftist Vandal at WWU Destroys Chalking Display

YAFers at Western Washington University stayed up until 8 AM to catch leftist vandals in the act of destroying their conservative chalking display. This unhinged leftist IMMEDIATELY plays the victim card when confronted—screaming, crying, and hurling expletives.

When our founding fathers wrote the Constitution of the United States of America, they limited the power of the President of the United States and gave all power to Congress. Although, the president does head up the Cabinet, which is made up of 15 departments; the secretaries of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Labor, State, Transportation, Treasury, Veterans Affairs, and the Attorney General. This power was only given to the president in order to carry out the wishes of Congress. Congress can only declare war and appropriate money. Even though the President is the commander of the armed forces, Congress has to appropriate the money for the armed forces. Congress also has to approve the secretary of defense, and Congress has the power to impeach the President. Since all power is given to the Congress, the House of Representatives and the Senate should always work together regardless of whichever party is in power.

Then in 1964 came President Johnson's "Great Society," that among other things provided massive subsidies to women who have children out of wedlock - as long as there is no father living in the house or financially committed to the children. Since then out-of-wedlock births in the black community have skyrocketed from 24 percent to 70 percent. And so has black-on-black crime and murder; black-on-white crime and murder, black suicide, black abortion rates, venereal disease, black drug abuse and overdose death, ,etc. The poverty rate has dramatically increased as well. Of course Caucasian children born out-of-wedlock with no significant involvement with their father fare as poorly as black children, but the out-of-wedlock birth rate for white Americans is less than one third that of black Americans, about 22 percent.

DID YOU KNOW THAT JEW-HATRED IS PART AND PARCEL OF ISLAM? Here are only a few of the many, many Jew-hating sacred Islamic texts and writings of the leading Islamic religious authorities. The Moslem god, Allah, in the Koran says:  They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82);  If evil befalls you, they rejoice; 3:120  Most of you [Jews] are wicked; 5:59  The Jews say Ezra is the son of God; God curse them! 9:30  Fight against the Jews until they pay the tax promptly and agree to submit; 9:29 The Moslem prophet, Muhammad, said:  "You (i.e. Muslims) will fight with the Jews till some of them will hide behind stones. The stones will (betray them) saying, '0 'Abdullah (i.e. slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.' ” Yusuf Qaradawi, the leading Islamic religious authority in the world, said:  "Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the [Jews] people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Hitler. This was divine punishment for them. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hand of the believers [i.e. the Muslims]."  "The only thing I hope for is that as my life approaches its end, Allah will give me an opportunity to go to the land of Jihad and resistance, even if in a wheelchair. I will shoot Allahs enemies, the Jews.
CAN ISLAM COEXIST WITH OTHER RELIGIONS? The Moslem god, Allah, says NO! He it is who has sent his Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth to make it victorious over all religion even though the infidels may resist. Koran 61:9 Make war on them until idolatry shall cease and God’s religion shall reign supreme. 8:40 Fight against them until idolatry is no more and God’s religion reigns supreme. 2:193 Fight against those to whom the Scriptures were given… until they pay tribute out of hand and are utterly subdued. 9:29 The Moslem prophet, Muhammad, says NO! Mohammed said, "I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, "None has the right to be worshiped but Allah, Muhammad said: “I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify to the fact that there is no god but Allah,…” The respected Sunni manual of Sharia law, Reliance of the Traveler, says NO! JIHAD means to (make) war on non-Muslims. (o9.0) The founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hasan al-Banna, says NO! "It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet." Many other respected Islamic religious authorities say NO! KEEP THIS IN MIND WHENEVER YOU HEAR OF A MOSLEM RUNNING FOR ANY PUBLIC OFFICE. PLEASE share these truths about Islam with your contacts. For more information, send an email to [email protected].
It’s exciting to see today’s generation carry the torch of freedom forward, especially against today’s head winds. I was chairman of my YAF chapter in New Orleans in the mid-1960’s. It was a tumultuous time. I organized a Victory In Vietnam demonstration, watched the SDS in action (and learned a lot), and got Victory In Vietnam Day proclaimed in New Orleans. Nearly got my ass kicked by pinko-hippies in Jackson Square of the French Quarter...I put together and was handing out hygiene packets with soap to them. We met with Rhodesian Freedom fighters and with Ed Butler, the radio personality who debated Lee Harvey Oswald on the merits of Marxism. You face the same challenges today, by a larger, well-financed, but much less cohesive a foe. Interesting stuff. Be happy to talk to you guys about it some time....
ISLAM SUPPORT TERRORISM? THE MOSLEM GOD, ALLAH, SAYS YES! I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels. Strike off their heads; strike off the very tips of their fingers. 8:12 Prepare against them whatever arms and cavalry you can muster, that you may strike terror in (the hearts of) the enemies of God and your own, 8:60 We will put terror into the hearts of the unbelievers. 3:151 THE MOSLEM PROPHET, MUHAMMAD, SAYS YES! Sahih Bukhari (52:220) - Allah's Apostle said 'I have been made victorious with terror. SHEIKH WAJDI HAMZA AL-GHAZAWI of the AI-Manshawi Mosque in Mecca, right after 9/11, said YES! "The meaning of the term 'terror' used by the media ... is Jihad for the sake of Allah. Jihad is the peak of Islam. MAHMOUD ABBAS of the Palestinian Authority said: "We will not accept their designation of our martyrs as terrorists.” THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD has been declared a terrorist organization by Saudi Arabia, Egypt and United Arab Emirates, but no Islamic community organizations or religious authorities have condemned the Muslim Brotherhood. HAMAS (a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood) was declared a terrorist organization by the United States, Israel and The European Union but American Islamic organizations, including CAIR, and Congresswomen Omar and Tlaib refuse to condemn Hamas. KEEP THIS IN MIND WHENEVER YOU HEAR OF A MOSLEM RUNNING FOR ANY PUBLIC OFFICE. PLEASE share these truths about Islam with your contacts. For more information, send an email to [email protected].
Long-time YAF activist & organizer nationwide, Pat Nolan is suffering from complications of pneumonia & has asked me to alert as many #Faithful friends as I can to join his Circle of Prayer asking for a return of his health, vitality, joie de vivre & the strength to continue his Good Works as prescribed by St. James. Pat & I have prayed together & with the prayer below you can join us in His observance asking Him to right what now is wrong. Please say it aloud & pass it on to everyone. The Power of Prayer knows no bounds, breaks all shackles & fulfills His holy promise of ask & you shall receive. Lord God Almighty and Everlasting we beseech You to lay Your hands upon and cure our Dear Brother in Christ Patrick J. Nolan who mightily suffers from pneumonia and attendant maladies. Brother Pat has spent his entire life in Your service furthering Your goals and ministering to Your people, including the least among us; he is the husband of Gail and father of Courtney, Jamie & Katie - all of whom are diamonds in Your celestial necklace of righteousness. Brother Pat has devoted himself to implementing Your work here on earth...life-changing efforts like the Prison Rape Elimination Act while heading the Prison Justice and Fellowship programs, and the Prison Reform and Redemption Act that seeks to reform, forgive & strengthen. Brother Pat served this great country in the United States Marine Corps; as an elected Assemblyman in California; and a national inspiration to America's youth by his leadership roles in Young Americans for Freedom. Pat now suffers a devastating & painful pneumonia condition for which medications prescribed are not working. We ask You Lord to look kindly on this good and faithful servant of Yours. Please bring him health, recovery, strength, vigor and renewal so that he may continue his good works as James prescribed. We ask all of these things in Your name dear Lord. Amen.
