LAA Officially Launches Patriotic Souls to the Polls Initiative to bring in 120,000 new rural Christian Voters to Polls

View a PDF version of this press release here.

Look Ahead America officially launched their Patriotic Souls to the Polls at a press conference at the Georgia Statehouse in Atlanta. LAA Executive Director Matt Braynard and State Volunteer Coordinator Jennifer Rae Vliet were joined by State Representative and Pastor Wes Cantrell, State Representatives Matt Dubnik and Todd Jones, and Turning Point Faith representative Dawson Mancabelli.

At the conference, Matt Braynard made the following statement:

For too long rural Christians have been disenfranchised in this state because while in urban, progressive counties, churches there have had the opportunity to register and turnout their voters on Sundays, rural, patriotic counties have not had that opportunity. We estimate 60,000 rural Christian voters did not participate in the last election and an additional 60,000 are not registered. This mission of this initiative is to change that. So far, we’ve successfully flipped Hall and Cherokee County to allow voting on Sundays, and we expect to flip Forsyth County within the next few weeks.

Rep. Wes Cantrell made the following statement:

My dream as a pastor and as a state representative is that there are a couple of Sundays before an election where pastors all over a county would stand up and say, ‘folks, get out and vote today.’ Couldn’t be more easy, couldn’t be more convenient. Grab some lunch after church and head by the polls before you go home. The law needs to be applied equally. It shouldn’t be different whether you live in one county or another. Every Georgian should have equal access to vote.

Rep. Todd Jones made the following statement:

This is all about access and ensuring every Georgian has the same opportunity to get to the polls. If Sunday is more convenient for you to get to the polls, we want to help you get there so you can cast your vote.

Rep. Matt Dubnik made the following statement:

Senate Bill 202 that we passed last year gave everyone the opportunity to have access to the ballot. I’m very excited about the opportunity for Sunday voting to give access to the ballot box to Georgians in all 159 counties.

Dawson Mancabelli, Turning Point Faith’s Peach Territory Representative, made the following statement:

We’re excited for this opportunity for a partnership with Look Ahead America. At Turning Point Faith, we hope to civically engage faith communities. That looks like voter registration drives, that looks like hosting potlucks after a Sunday early vote.

LAA State Volunteer Coordinator Jennifer Rae Vliet made the following statement:

We have an incredible group of volunteers that love their Peach State and love this country. I want to extend a warm invitation out to any patriotic American who’d like to be a part of history in the making. You can do that by going to LookAheadAmerica.org.

The Patriotic Polls to the Souls initiative involves the following two steps:

    1. Obtaining approval for a Sunday vote option in the 143 rural counties in Georgia that currently do not allow it. As of November 2021, LAA has successfully lobbied and gained approval of a Sunday vote option in two of Georgia’s largest rural counties, Hall and Cherokee, with more to follow in the very near future.
    2. Outreach, registration, education and mobilization efforts of churches in Georgia’s rural counties (aka our Church the Vote campaign). These efforts will culminate through wide-spread voter participation at our Patriotic Souls to the Polls Sunday voting days, preceding upcoming general elections.

LAA Releases Analysis of Fourteen AZ Voter Integrity Bills

As state legislators in Phoenix hold hearings on proposed election integrity legislation, Look Ahead America’s Voter Integrity Project has released a report analyzing of each of the fourteen bills under review.

From the report:

While some do very little to improve election security, a few of them do close loopholes such as removing drop boxes and increasing voter roll cleanup. We believe that if the Arizona legislators considered our six integrity points and worked them into the laws, that they would be much more efficient, less expensive, and cost effective than many of the options than they are proposing. Still, for the most part it is a step in the right direction.

LAA Responds to 538’s Lying Reporter Kaleigh Rogers

Today, Look Ahead America’s Research Director Ian Camacho released the following letter in response to the many fabrications in liar Kaleigh Roger’s hit piece on LAA’s Voter Integrity Project’s reports.

January 17, 2022

Kaleigh,

I am extremely disheartened, but not surprised at yet another journalistic lack of integrity. Upon completion of our discussion, it would appear that you have chosen to selectively edit our conversation to push forth a narrative not based in truth.

In your smear piece, you wrote “I have not personally reviewed every instance,” of our examples. We offered to provide you all our unredacted work. Your refusal to review it is evidenced by your repeating state senator Bee Nguyen’s outdated “debunk” claim. Had you accepted our unredacted work you would see that the false positives she referenced do not appear in our final product.

You also wrote “He also could not definitely prove that the business address was not also residential.” The property record provided to you shows that it is a commercial address; the voter was not homeless or living at the restaurant as their mailing address is a residential home.

I showed a double voter in Yuma County, Arizona and Outagamie County, Wisconsin – two contested states. When Look Ahead Arizona contacted the Yuma County Recorder, they confirmed flagging her using ERIC, which supports our NCOA methodology. Unsurprisingly you excluded this mention.

Over the call and six emails I provided property records, maps, and voter records for 71 illegally registered voters at a commercial building without apartments 2870 Peachtree Rd NW (and NE, which doesn’t exist) Atlanta, GA 30305. You conceded:

“I can’t quite make out the UPS number, but I do see a UPS listed at 2870 Peachtree Road.  I also think it’s odd that there is a huge condo building that is also a ‘2870’ address right behind where this address should be but is technically Pharr Court and not Peachtree. Just seems like there’s a chance something else is going on since there’s lots of addresses there. If I was trying to figure this out for a story, I’d personally be knocking on doors.”

Yet you ran a story, knocked on no doors, and instead of “trying to figure this out” you claimed our work is “sloppy and inconclusive” despite our evidence showing otherwise. Maybe if we showed that these voters were Trump supporters then you would be interested?

It is clear that your motives are not based in journalistic truth, but rather based in pushing a narrative to further a false agenda. It is no wonder so many Americans have lost faith in your profession. No wonder 538 had so many layoffs recently.

Ian Camacho
Research Director

LAA Announces Pro-America School Board Resolution Project To Fight CRT, anti-Americanism in Classrooms

Today, Look Ahead America released announced its latest project, the Pro-America School Board Resolution. Look Ahead State Volunteer Coordinators across the country will begin to direct their volunteers to petition their local school board to pass this resolution which declares, among many other pro-America sentiments, that the United States is the greatest nation in the history of the world.

Look Ahead America Executive Director Matt Braynard made the following statement:

Fighting anti-American poison like Critical Race Theory in our public schools is important, but it isn’t enough. Even if CRT was defeated, another leftist, anti-American theology would replace it as the default educational framework in our public schools.

This resolution is the beginning of our effort to go on the offense. This muscular and aggressive Pro-America resolution affirms that greatness our founders, recognizes the supremacy of parents as arbiters of their children’s educations, and declares that greatest responsibility of our schools is to produce a patriotic citizenry loyal to and willing to defend this great nation.

The beauty of a resolution is that it expresses the values of the school district and establishes a general framework for education in the classroom. And by pushing school boards to vote on this resolution, it will reveal who on the school board is an ally of our country and who seeks to undermine it.

The resolution can be found at https://www.lookaheadamerica.org/proamerica.

Resolution Regarding the Teaching of American History in the [District Name] School District

A resolution providing general guidance to the faculty and administrators employed in this school district on the education of our students regarding the history of the United States of America.

Whereas the United States of America (USA) is the greatest nation in the history of Mankind;

Whereas the philosophical, political, and cultural foundation born of and handed down by our founders has delivered to our citizens a land of peace, prosperity, and justice, that must be preserved;

Whereas, while the slavery found in our early years originated from Africa and the Middle East where it still practiced today, the people of our nation eradicated that evil practice from our shores at great cost and set the example for liberty and freedom for world;

Whereas the kindness, generosity, and spirit of the American people has welcomed more immigrants and refugees than all other nations combined and given them the opportunity to become sons and daughters of the greatest country on Earth;

Whereas there is no nation that has done more to ensure the peace, freedom, safety and prosperity of fellow nations around the world;

Whereas the mother and father are the first educators and stewards in a child’s life and should be respected as such. America’s Founding Fathers referenced Cicero in outlining the family as the “seminary of the republic.” Habits and morals in the home reflect upon the child in early development;

Whereas it is acknowledged that the family is to be supported and their council sought first, in pursuit of the child’s education before any other advisements of institutional education;

Whereas the United States Constitution shall be studied thoroughly at all grade levels. To outline that the Founding Fathers created the document to limit government, not to give its citizens rights. Our inalienable rights come only from the Creator;

Whereas, our nation’s enemies, foreign and especially domestic, seek to poison our young people’s minds, to indoctrinate them to express hate for America, its Founders, its sacred institutions, and its culture, through deceit and lies perpetuated through mainstream media, corrupt unelected bureaucrats, partisan hacks and charlatans posing as educators;

Be it resolved that:

The primary educational mission of this school district is to instill in our students a pride in the nation that our Founders have created and to develop a clear, unbiased understanding of America’s glorious history and the promise it holds for untold generations to come.

We must instill in our students a love and a respect of this nation, its history, institutions, culture, people, and future, and to embrace our great honor to live not just in this nation but for this nation, to work tirelessly to preserve and protect it, and, as our founders did, pledge to its survival our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.

#J6Vigil: LAA Announces DC Prison, Nationwide Vigils for January 6th Anniversary

Today, Look Ahead America announced that they would lead a nationwide effort to host candlelight vigils around the country in honor of the hundreds of Americans who have been targeted for political prosecution as a result of exercising their First Amendment rights at the US Capitol on January 6th, 2021, and to commemorate the murder of Ashli Babbitt and apparent murder of Rosanne Boyland at the hands of Capitol and DC Police officers.

LAA Executive Director Matt Braynard made the following statement:

January 6th is the one-year anniversary of the beginning of our government’s immoral and unconstitutional political persecution of hundreds of our brothers and sisters who exercised their First Amendment rights to seek redress of grievances on January 6th.

This is also the anniversary of the day that our sister Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed veteran, was murdered by a Capitol Police Officer, and the apparent murder of Rosanne Boyland by DC Police.

Around the country and even around the world, we invite our supporters to host these vigils to raise awareness of our government’s betrayal of these citizens and our fundamental values to perpetuate the phony “insurrection” narrative. We encourage everyone to join us for this peaceful and somber demonstration of our patriotic resolve that these victims will not be forgotten and the crimes of our political leaders will not be forgiven.

The DC vigil will run from 6 PM to 7 PM at the DC Prison, and additional vigils around the country will be announced over the next two weeks. Those interested in hosting a vigil or receiving updates about vigils in their area should sign up at https://www.lookaheadamerica.org/vigil.

LAA GradesTexas Election Integrity Bill: “F”

Look Ahead America today released our analysis of Texas’s attempt at election integrity, Senate Bill 1. Look Ahead America’s Research Director, Ian Camacho, who led the development of the report, stated the following:

Texas Senate Bill 1 does nothing to change the underlying issues with elections and in many cases makes the situation worse.

From the 35-page analysis:

Texas S.B. 1 purports to achieve voter integrity, however, the voters of Texas deserve much higher standards from their elected officials in addressing voter fraud and election integrity.

Not only does it fail at all of Look Ahead America’s core objectives to strengthen our elections, in many cases it actually undermines voter integrity. Not in the way that the Department of Justice claims it does, however, as the bill makes clear that the laws are not to discriminate against those with disabilities and leaves room for their aid. Likewise, at various points many accommodations are made for those with disabilities, those in need, those in hospice or assisted living. The actions by the DOJ appear at best uninformed and at worst political theater.

LAA’s Research Group produced the 35-page VISAGE Report which includes a full summary of the bill as well as an analysis of how well it addresses key election integrity concerns.
