Breitbart: A Politicized Justice Department
The latest twist to the ever-evolving IRS political targeting scandal, which began over a year ago now, would have been even bigger news this week were it not for the ISIS terrorist threat.
A top spokesman for Attorney General Eric Holder made a fatal error on Tuesday: Holder’s spokesman, Brian Fallon, mistakenly called House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa’s office in search of “some help leaking information about the IRS’s scrutiny of conservative groups."
This devastating revelation is just further proof that nothing about Eric Holder’s Justice Department’s investigation into IRS targeting is legitimate, and, as is the case with this current administration as a whole, partisan politics reign supreme.

Newsmax: Citizens United's Bossie: Alan Simpson 'Has to Get His Facts' Right
Former Sen. Alan Simpson's swipe at Sen. Ted Cruz about Cruz's comment that political satire on shows like "Saturday Night Live" may become illegal if a campaign finance amendment is passed, shows that Simpson is detached from reality, says David Bossie, president of Citizens United.
"It just goes to show you that Alan Simpson's completely out to lunch," Bossie said Friday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.
"Alan has been out of the Senate a long time and he really, I don't think, is following at all what's going on in reality."

Fox News: FEC moves to strip ‘unconstitutional’ election spending rules after 4-year delay
After dragging its feet for four years, the federal agency that regulates campaign spending is finally moving to conform with a landmark Supreme Court decision that dramatically loosened election spending rules.
The leaders of the Federal Election Commission announced the agreement on Thursday. It marks the apparent end of a protracted deadlock on the panel over how to comply with the controversial 2010 Citizens United ruling, which lifted restrictions on corporate and union spending in elections.
The agreement also gets the FEC on the same page with the more recent McCutcheon decision, which overturned aggregate contribution limits for donors.

Bossie: “The First Amendment Is Preserved Yet Again”
Washington, DC -- Citizens United President David N. Bossie released the following statement following the defeat of S.J. Res. 19, a proposed constitutional amendment by Senator Tom Udall of New Mexico that would have overturned the landmark Supreme Court case Citizens United v. FEC.
“The First Amendment is preserved yet again, ensuring all Americans are able to exercise their right of free political speech,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “As the nation mourns the thirteenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, and with ISIS on the march, Senate Democrats continue their losing battle in stripping away the rights for all Americans to participate in the electoral process. The Supreme Court ruled nearly five years ago in Citizens United v. FEC that this type of incumbency power grab cannot and will not stand. Citizens United appreciates all the U.S. Senators who stood up to preserve the First Amendment today, as Harry Reid and his Democrat colleagues voted to tamper with our Constitutional rights.”
Cagle.com: President Obama On The Wrong Side Of History
President Obama and his administration are fond of bragging that they believe themselves to be on the “right side of history.”
Strangely, what Obama seems to think the right side of history is and what actual history proves, are two very different things.
Time and again, in his quest to be on the right side of history, Obama has come down on the wrong side of human liberty and dignity.
“I think history will end up recording that at every juncture in the situation in Egypt that we were on the right side of history,”he said at a February 4, 2011 press conference.

Breitbart: Harry Reid's Senate Is Focused On Citizens United While The World Is Burning
It has been a long, hot summer here in America and abroad. ISIS is on the march and has brutally beheaded two American journalists. The threat is so large that you even have liberal United States Senators like Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Al Franken (D-MN) openly questioning President Barack Obama’s foreign policy.
The last time the threat to the homeland was this grave was in the aftermath of September 11th. So, what is first on the policy agenda for the United States Senate after a month-long recess? Developing a response to ISIS? Or even a policy on the Russian advances in the Ukraine? No! Reid has his sights on gutting the First Amendment and overturning the landmark Citizens United Supreme Court decision.
This folly known as S.J. Res. 19, introduced by Senator Tom Udall (D-NM), is just another example of how out-of-touch the Democrat-controlled United States Senate is and why Congress, according to the Real Clear Politics average, is at nearly a 80 percent disapproval rating. Harry Reid and the Democrat Caucus that he leads are completely consumed by a political agenda that attacks Citizens United. Why? Because the Citizens United decision gives a powerful voice to the opposition and makes it easier to participate in the process -- a scary thought for liberal incumbents.

Breitbart: Free Speech Is Winning, Thanks To Citizens United
In the nearly five years since Citizens United v. FEC was decided, more Americans than ever are exercising their First Amendment rights and engaging in political speech. The results are in: political speech and spending are up. While spending is up across the board, the real winners have been Republican candidates for office.
A new study, “The Business of American Democracy: Citizens United, Independent Spending and Elections,” analyzes state legislative elections that have occurred since the decision and finds that "Citizens United v. FEC was associated with a six percentage-point increase in the likelihood that a Republican candidate would win a state legislative race."
Democrats have been slow to exercise the rights that were restored by Citizens United, while Republicans have embraced the decision and rallied to support candidates they believe in.

Washington Post: Study: Citizens United elected more Republicans
The 2010 Supreme Court decision that helped usher in a new era of political spending gave Republicans a measurable advantage on Election Day, according to a new study.
The advantage isn’t large, but it is statistically significant: The researchers found the ruling, in Citizens United v. FEC, was associated with a six percentage-point increase in the likelihood that a Republican candidate would win a state legislative race.
And in six of the most affected states — Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, North Carolina, Ohio and Tennessee — the probability that a Republican would be elected to a state legislative seat increased by 10 percentage points or more.
