Shocking new information about President Obama’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, and her unprecedented unmasking requests has just come to light. As we reported, earlier: According to numerous reports , “[f]ormer United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power is believed to have made ‘hundreds’ of unmasking requests to identify individuals named in classified intelligence community reports related to Trump and his presidential transition team.” Think about that: Hundreds of... read more

Your voice has just secured what may be the first meaningful action at the United Nations (U.N.) in defense of Christians and other religious minorities facing genocide at the hands of ISIS jihadists in Iraq. It is the result of years of relentless work behind the scenes and on the world stage, culminating in a unanimous U.N. Security Council resolution specifically addressing ISIS’s “genocide.” It’s the first step in what will be a long process to protect Christians and other religious... read more

The same Hawaii federal judge who blocked President Trump’s National Security Executive Order from going into effect has blocked the President’s recent Proclamation to begin enhanced vetting procedures of foreign nationals seeking entry into the United States. Judge Derrick Watson, appointed by President Obama, yesterday issued a temporary restraining order that prevents the full implementation of the Proclamation. The Proclamation, issued on September 24, 2017, fulfilled the promise of... read more

We are continuing to gain momentum in our advocacy campaign to recognize the atrocities being carried out against Christians, Yazidis, and other religious minorities as acts of genocide. We have sent letters to foreign heads of state , U.S. government officials , and have even delivered oral interventions at the U.N. Human Rights Council. We recently received a response from the U.K. and the Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide, Adama Dieng . Now, we have received a... read more

The ACLJ is pleased to announce another significant victory in our ongoing effort to provide government accountability, mitigate the damage done by deep state Obama holdovers, and ensure the truth about the Clinton investigation comes to light. We just received a letter from the FBI notifying us that, in response to our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request it has begun publicly releasing records on its website. These records are making headlines . The bombshell document – entitled on the... read more

Late last week, the President boldly announced that his Administration will not certify the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), otherwise known as President Obama’s catastrophic Iran Nuclear Deal. In his announcement, President Trump called out the Iranian government for what it is – a “radical regime.” As we have explained before , the disastrous Iran Deal is even worse than previously thought: “Evidence now surfaces showing the Obama Administration concealed information that Iran—the... read more

Christians in Azerbaijan face increasing government persecution for their faith. Recently, we took action directly at the U.N. to highlight their plight. As we’ve explained before, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) are able to assist the Human Rights Council by submitting a Universal Periodic Review (UPR) reports for the purpose of detailing information regarding the status of human rights in a particular country. Through our affiliate, the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ), we... read more

President Trump just signed an Executive Order “to Promote Healthcare Choice and Competition.” This Executive Order allows small businesses to unite to purchase healthcare across state lines and avoid portions of ObamaCare’s onerous mandates and failing healthcare markets. The President has exercised his constitutional authority to take the next step and do what Congress has failed to do for months: reform our broken healthcare system, lower costs, expand access to health insurance coverage, read more

Persecution of Christians in Pakistan and around the world continues. Our international affiliate, the European Centre for Law and Justice’s (ECLJ) office in Pakistan, the Organization for Legal Aid (OLA), recently investigated the murder of a 17-year-old Christian student, Sharoon Masih, who was brutally beaten to death by a Muslim classmate. Upon receiving news of Sharoon’s death, our team went to his hometown to meet the aggrieved family and learn what transpired. According to his father, read more

Senator Mitch McConnell (KY), the Senate Majority leader, has heard our demand for action and reform. He has just removed an archaic procedural rule that has been misused by the left to block conservative federal judicial nominees from ever getting a vote—or even a hearing. It is called the Senate “blue slip,” but you will not find it in the Constitution. In 1917, the blue slip was initially created as an informal Senate “courtesy.” Under this courtesy, home state Senators were asked about... read more
