Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation joined forces with several other non-profit organizations in urging the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to overturn a recent U.S. District Court decision that undercuts the free speech and donor privacy rights of non-profit organizations that undertake independent expenditures in connection with Federal elections.

CU and CUF File Census Amicus Brief

Department of Commerce v. New York

Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation joined forces with other conservative groups, urging the Supreme Court to lift a lower court injunction that prohibits the Commerce Department from including a U.S. citizenship question in the 2020 census. Our brief contends that distinguishing between U.S. citizens and those persons in the country who are not citizens is an important consideration in fulfilling the main purpose of the decennial census, which is to determine the proper apportionment of U.S. House of Representatives seats among the states. It closes with an impactful discussion of how opposition to the citizenship question is being driven by global elitists, deeply resentful of the election of Donald Trump in 2016, with a goal of skewing U.S. House of Representatives apportionment in favor of deeply blue states, as well as the accompanying allocation of electoral college votes in presidential elections, order to secure and retain political power in future elections. The brief concludes:

Globalization may be sought by many of our nation’s elites, but it is not the formula adopted by the framers. Our Constitution’s Preamble reminds us that it was “We the people” who united together to establish the Constitution in order to “secure the Blessings of Liberty” – not the act of citizens of the world to create a global community. James Madison cautioned us in Federalist 52 that it was absolutely “essential to liberty” to keep the “intimate” connection between the House of Representatives and American people, which requires distinguishing between those who are citizens members of the polity and those who are not.

Fox News: David Bossie: Nancy Pelosi takes the gavel in the House and what's her first target? Free speech

On Thursday, the 116th Congress began and San Francisco’s Nancy Pelosi became Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives once again.  Hopefully, she won’t revert to her old tricks by passing bills so the rest of us can find out what’s in them.

As the president of Citizens United, I know that every two years around this time the left ramps up its wrongheaded quest to gut the First Amendment and attack the landmark “Citizens United” Supreme Court decision that protects robust free speech rights for all of the American people. And this year is no exception, as House Democrats prepare to unveil H.R. 1 today.

A recent column in The New York Times entitled “After Citizens United, a Vicious Cycle of Corruption,” opens by stating, “In the eight years since it was decided, Citizens United has unleashed a wave of campaign spending that by any reasonable standard is extraordinarily corrupt.” An intriguing opening perhaps, but the entire opinion piece contains no evidence of corruption whatsoever. Liberals just can’t come to grips with the fact that spending a lot of money to participate in the political process doesn’t equal corruption.

Fox News: David Bossie: Hey, Mitt Romney -- Washington needs problem solvers, not headline grabbers

Mitt Romney is just like Hillary Clinton.  Six years later, he’s still upset that he’s not president.  So, instead of coming to Washington as a problem solver like he campaigned, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney chose to start his tenure as Utah’s junior United States Senator as part of the problem.

In the midst of a government shutdown over securing our border, Romney chose to side with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi by attacking President Donald Trump in an op-ed in The Washington Post instead of offering his opinion about how to solve our illegal immigration crisis and end the shutdown. Oh Mitt, why am I not surprised? This behavior is extremely disappointing coming from someone who was the Republican nominee for President in 2012. Romney should be helping President Trump, not trying out for CNN’s next anti-Trump Republican talking head.

First of all, why did Senator Romney choose the Washington Post for his op-ed? Why not choose a paper in Utah, the state that he represents? It’s because Romney is a swamp creature more concerned about raising his own national profile than representing the people of Utah.

‘Pathetic Attempt for Relevancy’: Bossie Slams Romney’s New Anti-Trump Op-Ed

David Bossie slammed Mitt Romney for a scathing op-ed in which the incoming Utah senator criticized President Trump's leadership.

Romney, who will be sworn into the Senate on Thursday, wrote in the Washington Post piece, "His conduct over the past two years, particularly his actions this month, is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office."

Romney said not all of Trump's policies and appointments have been "misguided," but he said the president should demonstrate "the essential qualities of honesty and integrity, and elevate the national discourse with comity and mutual respect."

"As a nation, we have been blessed with presidents who have called on the greatness of the American spirit," he wrote. "With the nation so divided, resentful and angry, presidential leadership in qualities of character is indispensable. And it is in this province where the incumbent’s shortfall has been most glaring."

Trump responded on Twitter Tuesday morning, urging Romney to focus on issues like border security and to be a "team player."

Fox News: Obamacare ruled unconstitutional by Texas judge

The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, was struck down by a Texas judge on Friday, a move that could suddenly disrupt the health insurance status of millions of Americans. The decision comes amid a six-week open enrollment period for the program.

Texas, along with 19 states, had argued to U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor that they had been hurt by a jump in the amount of people utilizing state-backed insurance. When Congress cut the tax penalty from the program in 2017, the states claimed, it essentially undercut the Supreme Court’s reasoning for finding former President Barack Obama’s signature legislation constitutional in 2012.

“The remainder of the ACA is non-severable from the individual mandate, meaning that the Act must be invalidated in whole,” O’Connor wrote in a 55-page opinion, according to Bloomberg. O'Connor is a conservative Republican appointee who previously blocked other Obama-era policies.

"As I predicted all along, Obamacare has been struck down as an UNCONSTITUTIONAL disaster," President Trump tweeted following the ruling. "Now Congress must pass a STRONG law that provides GREAT healthcare and protects pre-existing conditions. Mitch and Nancy, get it done!"

CU and CUF file amicus brief at the Supreme Court re: DACA

Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation joined with other conservative organizations in an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to take up the Trump Administration's appeal of two federal appeals court rulings that prohibit the Administration from implementing a policy decision to rescind the Obama Administration's DACA policy that allows certain illegal immigrants to remain in the U.S.  Among other things, the brief argues: The decisions by the 2nd and 9th Circuits "to force the retention of DACA on the nation is nothing less than an unconscionable attempt to nullify the results of a presidential election."

CU and CUF File Amicus Brief in American Legion's Bladensburg Cross Case

Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation have joined forces with other conservative groups in urging the Supreme Court to review and reverse a ruling by the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, which held that the Bladensburg Memorial Cross, which has stood on public ground for over 100 years, is an unconstitutional entanglement between government and religion.  Our amicus brief supports The American Legion's call for clarification of the "confused state" of the Supreme Court’s Establishment Clause jurisprudence.  More specifically, we urge the Court to abandon the framework derived from its 1971 decision in Lemon v. Kurtzman  and apply, instead, "an interpretive test that is suited to the original text of the Establishment Clause."
