CU and CUF Join Forces to urge U.S. Court of Appeals to overturn free speech decision

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.

Can business-friendly Terry McAuliffe sell himself to leftward leaning Democrats in 2020?

Terry McAuliffe buttonholed Amazon honchos last week at a Washington gala like the go-go-go jobs governor he once was.

“Folks, we want it all,” Virginia’s former governor recalled telling the executives at the Ireland Funds soiree. By that, he meant Virginia would gladly take all 50,000 high-paying jobs that Amazon once planned to split between Virginia and New York — until pushback from the left led the company to nix the Queens half of the deal.

When he left office in January 2018, McAuliffe appeared to be well positioned for a White House run as a socially liberal, business-friendly Democrat from an important swing state. But 14 months later, it’s unclear if there is room for McAuliffe, 62, in a party that seems to be pulling leftward.

The expanding Democratic field includes contenders ranging from Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who want to raise taxes on the wealthy to pay for social programs, to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), who wants national paid parental leave, to tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang, who supports a universal basic income.

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: 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."
