Albuquerque, NM- Protest ABQ has always maintained peaceful protests throughout Albuquerque and beyond, this is because we are opposed to all forms of violence. In fact, our mission is to protect the most defenseless among us, children in the womb, from the ultimate act of violence: abortion.

On Tuesday, May 24th Albuquerque experienced a protest that really became a riot because these efforts are fueled not by love but by hate and anger. This riot was one of many throughout the nation focused on opposing Donald Trump’s presidential campaign rallies.

One of the main groups organizing the anti-Trump agitation event in Albuquerque which ultimately resulted in violence against the police, property damage and even animal cruelty was ProgressNow New Mexico.

“Join ProgressNow NM and other community partners for an Anti-Trump rally to stand up to Donald Trump.” The events Facebook event page stated that it was created by ProgressNow NM.

This Reuters Article describes the rioting mob from New Mexico:

“Protesters threw rocks and bottles at police officers who responded with pepper spray outside a rally for presidential candidate Donald Trump in Albuquerque, New Mexico, police said. Hundreds of protesters tried to storm the convention center in New Mexico’s biggest city, knocking down barricades and throwing objects at a door and then hurling rocks and bottles at mounted police in riot gear, the Albuquerque Police Department said on Twitter on Tuesday and video posted online showed.Several police officsee wasers were injured, the police tweeted.”

The executive director of ProgressNow NM is Albuquerque City Councilor Pat Davis (District 6).


This riot begs the question, “Who is funding these organizations that are attempting to shut down free speech and a democratic election?”

Whether it was Bernie Sanders supporters or Hillary Clinton supporters that where responsible for the riot, these bullies ultimately have the same agenda: Shut Down Donald Trump and his supporters first amendment rights.

Billionare Nazi collaborator George Soros has publicly condemned Donald Trump and is pouring millions of dollars to defeat him.

George Soros is a member Democracy Alliance. According to its website, “The Democracy Alliance, founded in 2005, is the largest network of donors dedicated to building the progressive movement in the United States. We play a leading role in fostering the infrastructure necessary to advance a progressive agenda for America. We invest in every aspect of progressive power-building – from policymaking to organizing grassroots communities to winning state and national issue and electoral campaigns.” One of the organizations that Democracy Alliance directly funds is…ProgressNow!

In addition to being the executive director of ProgressNow NM, City Councilor Pat Davis is also on the board of directors for ProgressNow.

Another member of the board of directors of ProgressNow is Ted Trimpa. In addition to working with ProgressNow, Trimpa also serves on the board of directors of…Democracy Alliance!

The Interim Board Chair of ProgressNow is Doug Phelps, he also is a member of…Democracy Alliance.

In addition to Democracy Alliance, a super PAC called Priorities USA recently received $6 million dollars from George Soros to directly fund Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. In 2015 alone Priorities USA raised $41 million dollars. Gregg Speed serves on the board of Priorities USA and…ProgressNow! Gregg Speed is also president of America Votes another organization that Democracy Alliance directly funds.

Is Pat Davis’ organization ProgressNow New Mexico being directly funded to shut down free speech, cause civil unrest, and ultimately thwart the democratic process of an upcoming election in New Mexico?

Bud Shaver, executive director of Protest ABQ issued the following statement:

“With all of the damage to public property and violence against the Albuquerque Police that resulted from ProgressNow New Mexico’s anti-Trump agitation efforts, Protest ABQ is calling on Pat Davis to step down as a city councilor. In addition, Protest ABQ is calling upon Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry to conduct an investigation into Pat Davis and ProgressNow New Mexico’s role of organizing this “StandUpToTrump Rally”. Mayor Berry is offering a $10,000 dollar reward for the capture of individuals responsible for the rioting, how about starting with those who organized it?”

Media Matters (also directly funded by Democracy Alliance and organized by George Soros) has characterized Protest ABQ as  “a radical anti-abortion group” and claimed that Protest ABQ’s peaceful and non-violent protests are an attempt to, “mobilize violence against abortion providers” yet over the past two years of doing several protests each week, NONE of them have produced riots or property damage nor violence against ANYONE.

In fact Protest ABQ has continuously and publicly condemned all acts of violence.

Where is Pat Davis’ statement condemning the mob rioting and violence that his anti-Trump agitation event produced?

If Protest ABQ is labeled “radical” and “violent” for our peaceful protests, what should we conclude about Pat Davis and ProgressNow New Mexico?

Abortion is a Big Deal

Abortion is a Big Deal

CSA 6th Annual National Day of Prayer Week

Friday May 6th- Prayer Theme: Abortion

3rd Speaker: Bud Shaver, Pro-Life Missionary- Pro-Life Witness and Executive Director of Protest ABQ



Title: Abortion is a Big Deal

Intro: [Bible Passages] Sin in the Camp: Lesson of Ai (Joshua 7:3-11) We are at War: Strategies of the Enemy- Lesson of Balaam/Balak (Numbers 22: 10-12; 25: 1-3)

– We as Church leaders need to confront this grave injustice. I’m giving you leaders permission to talk about abortion in your Churches (this sin is in our “camp” and in our nation.  The enemy has successfully compromised us all by this national sin. If we don’t confront it, like the sin of Baal of Peor, God will remove His Blessings on us and we won’t be able to move forward as a nation.)

– Great strides are being made Nationally. (All the surrounding states of New Mexico are passing numerous pro-life laws, Governors all across the country are defunding Planned Parenthood:…/scott-walker-we-need-to-de-fund-…/)

– New Mexico needs to deal with abortion. (Our lack of laws is circumventing all of the National progress, Example Texas mandates parental notification before an abortion…a sexual abuser in TX drives a minor across the border and minor gets an abortion in NM and her parents never know:…/)

– Planned Parenthood’s atrocities are being exposed selling baby body parts after abortion. This has touched our nation’s heart.

– New Mexico is at the center of this huge national scandal. (US House Panel subpoenas University of New Mexico and Southwestern Women’s Options:…/nm-part-of-fetal-tissue-debate.…)

– We ( compiled over 5 years of research and presented it to legislators in Santa Fe, New Mexico at the start of this year’s legislative session in January. (FULL 45min. FEATURE:

– Now I’m presenting (Part 1) to you Church leaders. (Inform you about what we are really dealing with in “NM Reproductive Health Facilities” pull back the curtain, hear them in their own words. For your prayers and action.) Watch video- Part 1:

Prayer Requests:

-Pray for unity among pro-life groups.

-Pray for all of our efforts to bear fruit.

-Pray for our Leaders [civic- local, city, state] to be bold. (We as Church leaders and the people they represent must raise the bar and expect more from them. Encourage this when we have opportunities to speak with them. Example our Gov. Martinez claims she can’t do anything except sign bills into law that get to her desk…but several other Governors across the nation are Defunding Planned Parenthood, launching investigations:…/bobby-jindal-plays-planned-pare…/)

– Pray for The University of New Mexico, the heart of the abortion industry in New Mexico. (Great progress visit “News” tab for Action Items… prayer and contact)

– Pray for two of our current investigations and complaints we have formally filed.

(1.) Attorney General:…/anti-abortion-groups-want-probe…

(2.) Nursing Board-…/group-targets-prescription-of-a…
