Bossie Statement on Supreme Court Same-Sex Marriage Ruling

Washington, D.C. – David Bossie, Citizens United President issued the following statement after the Supreme Court handed down its decision on same-sex marriage in Obergefell v. Hodges.

“Today’s ruling is a disappointment to millions of Americans who believe in traditional marriage. The Supreme Court has substituted its will for that of the people and the states.

This decision only motivates Citizens United to re-double our efforts to preserve religious liberty across our country. We will not sit back and watch the radical left continue to target Christians for our conservative values.”

Citizens United Releases Membership Presidential Poll Results

Carson, Walker Tied for Lead, Cruz on Their Heels

Washington, DC -- Over the past week, Citizens United surveyed a cross-section of our membership nationwide to get a sense of where they stand on 2016 at this early stage.

From June 16th to June 23rd, nearly 4,300 participants took the online poll indicating who their first choice is for President. This is not a scientific poll.

“These results make one thing perfectly clear: grassroots conservatives are fed up with the failed status quo and want their next president to be an outsider with the guts to take on the establishment in Washington, D.C,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United.

Of the 4,300 members polled, the results are as follows:

First Choice for President

Dr. Ben Carson – 18.0%

Governor Scott Walker – 17.9%

Senator Ted Cruz – 15.9%

Mr. Donald Trump – 13.1%

Washington Examiner: Citizens United demands answers in State Dept. coverup

David Bossie, president of Citizens United, demanded answers to questions raised by leaked inspector general documents that suggest high-level officials in Hillary Clinton's State Department interfered with internal investigations.

"In the interests of open government, transparency and integrity, Secretary Clinton should immediately disclose the names of the senior State Department officials mentioned" as interfering with investigations in a 2012 draft of a report, Bossie said Wednesday.

Bossie cited a passage from the draft that alluded to an unnamed official who had allegedly stymied a criminal investigation into an ambassador.

Early drafts of a February 2013 inspector general report show officials removed unflattering passages in late 2012 before releasing it publicly.

Washington Examiner: Hillary's officials cut criticisms out of State Dept. reports

State Department Inspector General officials edited out passages of a high-profile report in 2013 that could have embarrassed Hillary Clinton just days before she quit President Obama's Cabinet.

The officials excised details of a cover up of misconduct by Clinton's security team.

The edits raise concerns that investigators were subjected to "undue influence" from agency officials.

The Washington Examiner obtained earlier drafts of the report which differ markedly from the final version. References to specific cases in which high-level State officials intervened and descriptions of the extent and frequency of those interventions appear in several early drafts but were later eliminated.

Washington Examiner: State Department ignores lawsuit over records linking Boko Haram and Clinton Foundation

A conservative group is suing the State Department in an effort to find out whether the agency's refusal to place Boko Haram on the terrorist watch list while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state had anything to do with the fact that a high-level Nigerian official was a major Clinton Foundation donor and close friend of the former president.

Citizens United, a conservative nonprofit, brought the case to court after the State Department ignored its request for records about the Chagoury Group, a sprawling Nigerian company headed by a Clinton friend and financial supporter of Clinton causes, Gilbert Chagoury.

Chagoury donated between $1 million and 5 million to the Clinton Foundation, donor records show.

More than 30 days have passed since Citizens United first filed the lawsuit without a response of any kind from the State Department.

Newsmax TV: David Bossie: Scandal Response 'Right Out of Clinton Playbook'

A Clinton critic says the email scandal surrounding Hillary Clinton is straight from the "Clinton playbook."

David Bossie, the president and chairman of Citizens United, tells Ed Berliner on Newsmax TV's "The Hard Line" he is not surprised how Clinton, who is running for president, is acting regarding her role in the scandal.

"It is right out of the Clinton playbook," Bossie says. "Play beat the clock, run the clock out as long as possible, make this just a partisan attack, make this about enemies of the Clintons, the vast right-wing conspiracy. Those things will all come into play after they attack their accusers, after they blame other people for their woes."

Breitbart News: The Clinton Scandals Were Very Real

This op-ed was written in response to Joe Conason’s recent article in Politico Magazine entitled “The Fake Clinton Scandals Are Back.” Politico Magazine declined to publish my response.

Clinton, Inc. has ordered their surrogates to go out and try to convince the American people that all the Clinton scandals of the 1990’s were just a figment of everybody’s imagination. I’ll call it the “Keyser Soze Defense”—convince the world that they never existed. It’s chutzpah to the highest degree, but right out of the Clinton playbook. Joe Conason’s recent article entitled “The Fake Clinton Scandals Are Back” is a perfect example. The cynical Clinton machine is betting that the American people are a forgetful bunch that either won’t recall what happened two decades ago or doesn’t care to learn. I beg to differ. I believe the American people are already on to them and the desperate measures coming out of Clinton World prove it.

National Review: Meet Cody Shearer, the Strangest Character in Hillary’s Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy

And you thought Sidney Blumenthal was shady.

Few people have heard of Cody Shearer, the unsanctioned diplomat, private eye, and Clinton flunky whose name surfaced in connection with the so-called intelligence reports Sidney Blumenthal was channeling to Hillary Clinton during her time at the State Department. But this shadowy fixture of the Clinton machine was everywhere in the 1990s — including war-torn Bosnia, where he became the subject of a State Department investigation after he represented himself as an agent of the U.S. government and took cash from a genocidal warlord.

Now evidence suggests Shearer, working with his partner Blumenthal, was up to something similar during the 2011 revolution in Libya. And like in the 1990s, the Clintons were lurking on the margins. Much of the intelligence contained in memos fed to the Clinton State Department by Blumenthal was not just self-serving — it was provided by someone with a history of misleading foreign sources, misrepresenting himself as an agent of the U.S. government, and creating trouble for both himself and the United States abroad.

The Daily Caller: Citizens United President: Hillary’s Desire To Pack Courts To Overturn SCOTUS Is ‘Surreal’

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton promised to pack the courts with judges who would rule in favor of overturning the Citizens United case, and Citizens United president David Bossie is calling such a pledge “surreal.”

“I will do everything I can to appoint Supreme Court justices who protect the right to vote and do not protect the right of billionaires to buy elections,” Clinton told supporters during her trip to Iowa recently, The New York Times reported.

“Hillary Clinton is saying that she will appoint a person to the Supreme Court who will not uphold and defend the First Amendment ought to frighten the American people,” Bossie told One America News. He added that Clinton “fundamentally, wants to throw away the First Amendment based on a case that was critical of [her] … is a little surreal.”

National Review: Teflon Tony Rodham, the Clintons’ Shady Id

Sitting in a courtroom three years ago, after skipping out on a sizable legal bill, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s youngest brother struck a reassuring tone: Don’t worry, the money is coming.

“I deal through the Clinton Foundation,” Tony Rodham said, according to court transcripts uncovered by the New York Times. He gave his word that Hillary and Bill were setting him up with Haitian-government permits to build a $22 million housing development in the earthquake-stricken country.

“I hound my brother-in-law, because it’s his fund that we’re going to get our money from,” Rodham explained, promising a $1 million check once the Haitian-government paved the way, enough both to cover the outstanding legal fees and take his family to Disney World.
