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.

Cagle: Common Core On A Downward Spiral

The more people learn about Common Core, the more they learn they don’t like it. Support for Common Core standards is now at an all-time low, according to a new poll highlighted in U.S. News and World Report which stated, “One year ago, two-thirds of those surveyed said they hadn’t heard of the standards. Now, more than three-quarters have heard about Common Core, and it appears that many don’t like what they’ve heard. Sixty percent of those surveyed said they oppose the standards.”

This new poll also revealed that forty percent of teachers oppose Common Core standards, that number was thirteen percent just last year. Support for Common Core has cratered among educators, dropping from seventy-six percent last year to thirteen percent this year. The pressure put on teachers to marry these standards with standardized testing and the trend of teaching to the test is getting to educators, and they are ready for more freedom to teach lessons without stringent standards like those in Common Core.

As a nation we can use this experience to learn and grow, or we can continue in the same line of thinking we have been for the past couple of decades that has us ranking below average internationally in math, science and reading. It’s high time we let the individual states focus on the needs of their students based on their counties and communities. The states and their governors, mayors and parents know the needs of their students and children better than the federal government.

President Obama and the James Foley Murder

The barbaric murder of American journalist James Foley by the radical Islamic caliphate Islamic State this week is a prime example of how President Obama just does not understand the world in which we live.

Back in January, President Obama spoke of Islamic State to the New Yorker: The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant. I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.

That is the President of the United States and the Commander-in-Chief equating a terrorist army to a basketball team… really? Is that the dialogue President Obama wants to use to describe Islamic State? No wonder why our enemies across the globe do not take President Obama seriously. His callousness in calling Islamic State “jayvee” is just another illustration of President Obama not understanding what it means to be the president of the United States.

Cagle: If You Want a Political Witch Hunt, Look at Texas

All of the noise surrounding Governor Rick Perry attempting to legitimize his recent indictment is completely unjust and a textbook example of a political witch-hunt. Perry has been accused of “abuse of his office and coercing a public official” when in actuality, he was using his power to veto funding to Rosemary Lehmberg, a convicted drunk driver who also happened to be a Travis County District Attorney. Governor Perry was simply doing the right thing by calling on her to resign.

None of Perry’s actions were outside of the constitutional authority given to a Texas Governor. Even liberal media outlets such as MSNBC and The New York Times have cited the absurd accusations in articles of their own titled “The weak case against Rick Perry” and “The Strange Case Against Rick Perry.” This case, returned by the grand jury on Friday, is a complete mockery and a clean-cut case of dirty politics. Remember, this is the same D.A. office that brought trumped-up charges against former House Majority Leader Tom Delay and the case was later thrown out by a higher court.

Governor Perry has responded to the indictment stating, “I stood up for the rule of law in the state of Texas, and if I had to do it again, I would make exactly the same decision.” By personally attacking Perry with the “indictment” headline, the news story itself did its job by getting it into people’s heads that he was charged with a crime – no matter how unfounded and ludicrous the charges may be. Texas’ Senator Ted Cruz had this to say about the indictment, “Unfortunately, there has been a sad history of the Travis County District Attorney’s Office engaging in politically-motivated prosecutions, and this latest indictment of the governor is extremely questionable.”

Breitbart: Conservatives Unite In Iowa

Last Saturday, I was honored to have my organization Citizens United cosponsor a fantastic event with Bob Vander Plaats and the Family Leader in Ames, Iowa on the campus of Iowa State University. The Family Leadership Summit is an annual event which consistently draws large crowds of conservative activists and the top names in the conservative movement.

Senator Ted Cruz, Governor Rick Perry, Governor Bobby Jindal, Governor Mike Huckabee, Senator Rick Santorum and others had a chance to speak to a 1,000-plus crowd and take the opportunity to discuss the principles and values that make our beliefs as conservatives the only way to fix what’s broken in America today and restore the American Dream.

Each of the speeches had their own theme and message to conference attendees. Senator Cruz brought the crowd to their feet on numerous occasions taking shots at Obama and touting the message that we must “stand unambiguously for the commonsense conservative principles shared by the vast majority of Americans.” It is abundantly clear, particularly in the past few months, that Obama does not share the same core principles as the majority of Americans, and his favorability numbers prove it. Cruz closed his rip-roaring speech by announcing, “We need to stand for life, we need to stand for marriage, we need to abolish the IRS, we need to repeal Obamacare, and we need to repeal Common Core.”

Cagle: Jameson's Last Ride

“Jameson, were you chasing deer again? Jameson, did you eat the entire thing? Jameson, stop licking the baby. Jameson, wanna go for a ride?”

Those were some of the most common things that would come out of our mouths when talking to our best friend, Jameson. Jameson made us feel like the luckiest family in the world, until last week, just three months shy of her 14th birthday. Jameson was our 100 pound black Labrador Retriever, who always thought she was a lap dog.

Jameson was our first. Luckily, we found her at a local pet store about four months before the birth of our first daughter.

Breitbart: Liberals Not Interested in Benghazi Answers

Why are the Democrats trying to derail Trey Gowdy’s Benghazi investigation? It seems to me if they chose to seriously participate in the Select Committee probe, Democrats would send a clear signal to the American people that they care about our national security. I guess not!

On September 11, 2012, Islamic militants attacked the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi and killed four Americans: U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. In addition to the tragic loss of these four men, ten others were injured in these attacks. The day after these attacks took place, President Obama went to a fundraiser in Las Vegas for his 2012 campaign, and ever since then, Democrats and the mainstream media have done everything in their power to downplay the significance of these events and the importance of investigating them.

President Obama repeatedly refused to call the Benghazi attack what it was – a terrorist attack – despite later claiming that he had. This lie was so obvious that even the Washington Post took notice: “But the president’s claim that he said 'act of terrorism' is taking revisionist history too far, given that he repeatedly refused to commit to that phrase when asked directly by reporters in the weeks after the attack. He appears to have gone out of his way to avoid saying it was a terrorist attack, so he has little standing to make that claim now.”

Cagle.com: Over $7,000,000,000,000 And Counting

Recently, yet another horrible precedent has been set by the Obama Administration. The national debt of the federal government has skyrocketed to levels unseen by any administration to-date. President Obama has raised our national debt by over 7 trillion dollars to a grand total of over $17.5 trillion. This is not only a completely unimaginable amount of money, but an amount that future generations will have to deal with.

A similarly daunting fact is one that directly affects the very people President Obama has promised time and time again to help the most – the middle class. According to an article by CNS news, “The $7,060,259,674,497.51 in new debt that the federal government has taken on during Obama’s presidency equals $61,341.82 per household. The median household income in the United States in 2012 (the latest year estimated) was $51,017. Thus, President Obama has increased the federal debt by more than the typical household’s annual income.”

Dependence on government is key when it comes to breaking down the liberal agenda. Therefore, it would seem to make sense that such a progressive president would have the highest national debt growth in history. But this kind of reckless, irresponsible spending should cause concern – even among the most liberal democrats. Obama has taken his blank check and irresponsibly spent and spent without even giving a second thought to our future generations – who are going to have to somehow begin to clean up this giant fiscal mess.

Breitbart: Conservative Victory on the Southern Border Crisis

Unlike President Obama, this week House conservatives began the process of taking action to solve the crisis at our nation’s Southern border.

The latest legislation passed Friday gives emergency funds to governors for them to be able to deploy National Guard units to the border and calls for significantly less spending than President Obama’s nearly $4 billion proposal. In addition to being more fiscally responsible, it actually allows for the necessary action to be taken in order to prevent this crisis from worsening.

More importantly the House passed legislation that will rein in President Obama’s power to shield illegal immigrants from being deported, an important step in the process of beginning to clear up the problem he has created. I want to personally thank three Members of Congress -- Steve King, Marsha Blackburn, and Matt Salmon -- for their hard work ensuring conservative principles were honored and the hard choices were made to get this legislation where it needs to be policy-wise.
