THE DAILY SIGNAL: Congressmen, Conservative Groups Defend Eagle Forum From Justice Department’s ‘Chilling’ Subpoena

All six Republicans representing Alabama in the U.S. House signed on to a legal brief opposing the Justice Department’s broad subpoena of records from a small conservative group in their state, Eagle Forum of Alabama. 

The friend of the court brief, filed Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Alabama, also includes six Alabama state legislators and more than 50 organizations, most of them conservative.

Among those groups: Judicial Watch, Citizens United, Concerned Women for America, the Faith and Freedom Coalition, the Foundation for Government Accountability, the Manhattan Institute, the Public Interest Legal Foundation, and the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

The Daily Signal reported Sept. 12 that the Justice Department is seeking documents from Eagle Forum of Alabama going back five years as part of a lawsuit challenging an Alabama law that prohibits sex-change treatments for minors.

The GOP members of Alabama’s U.S. House delegation opposing the Justice Department’s action against Eagle Forum are Reps. Robert Aderholt, Mo Brooks, Jerry Carl, Barry Moore, Gary Palmer, and Mike Rogers. (Rep. Terri Sewell, Alabama’s seventh representative, is a Democrat.)

The six House Republicans from Alabama also sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday, asking him to explain the Justice Department’s constitutional authority for pursuing documents from Eagle Forum and to show that the agency is not acting in an arbitrary, political manner.

“Eagle Forum of Alabama is an outstanding organization that represents the values of thousands of Alabamians. To have their First Amendment rights infringed upon by the Department of Justice is disrespectful to our Constitution,” Palmer, chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee, said in a prepared statement, adding:

"Constitutional protections should not be dictated by the political views of individuals in the White House or their appointee. Attorney General Merrick Garland owes an explanation for the motives behind this aggressive action against an organization simply petitioning the government on an issue important to them."

Earlier this year, the Biden Justice Department sued the state of Alabama over the law against sex-change surgery and other medical treatment for minors. In August, the department subpoenaed documents from Eagle Forum of Alabama—which isn’t a party to the court case—regarding its interactions with lawmakers and other advocacy.

Individuals who signed on to the court brief include Hans von Spakovsky, a former Justice Department attorney who is a senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation, parent organization of The Daily Signal.

“This is an outrageous attempt by the Justice Department to try to intimidate citizens engaging in everyday, routine activity on issues important to them,” von Spakovsky told The Daily Signal. “The reason the Justice Department is doing this is because this is a particular view they want to silence.”

The friend of the court brief calls the Justice Department subpoena of Eagle Forum a “transparent and flagrant violation of the First Amendment.”

The friend of the court, or amici curiae, brief reads in part:

"Amici comprise a wide range of organizations and individuals, from nonprofit policy groups, to federal and state legislators, to individual citizens. Their interests and goals vary. But all agree that the United States’ subpoena in this case is a transparent use of the civil litigation process to chill the speech and political organizing of those who hold views contrary to those of the United States and the Department of Justice.

The subpoena harms not just members of the public across all ideological and political spectra, who will be inhibited from open discourse and petitioning, but also legislators themselves, who benefit from hearing from their constituents without those citizens fearing subsequent federal investigations seeking reams of protected materials."

The Justice Department did not immediately respond to The Daily Signal’s inquiries for this report.

“The department is full of radical bureaucrats and has even been sanctioned by federal courts for colluding with leftist groups,” J. Christian Adams, president of Public Interest Legal Foundation, said in a public statement. “In America, the government cannot target groups who oppose their political beliefs and that is exactly what the DOJ has done here.”

A weaponized Justice Department is targeting political enemies of the Biden administration, said Tarren Bragdon, president of the Foundation for Government Accountability.

“The Biden administration has launched an intimidation campaign against a small nonprofit group that has only one full-time employee,” Bragdon said in a public statement defending Eagle Forum of Alabama. “This is an effort to force the organization to exhaust its limited resources defending itself against the full force of the federal government.”


FOX BUSINESS: US back to ‘Jimmy Carter economic policies’ as inflation rages, David Bossie says

During his appearance on "Varney & Co." Thursday, Citizens United President David Bossie sounded the alarm on the inflation woes plaguing Americans, arguing the country is back to "Jimmy Carter economic policies" due to Biden's agenda. 

DAVID BOSSIE: We're going to see high, high unemployment. We're going to see interest rates for a very long time go up. And that's the pain that Powell was talking about, or we're going to see this incredible recession. And I think we're going to see a little bit of both. We're back to Jimmy Carter economic policies.

We're back to Jimmy Carter in numbers. And this is going to be a long time, we're going to see this for several years to come. And if we don't get it corrected this November, you know, with the with a policy change in the House of Representatives, we're going to be in this for a very, very long time.

MSN: What's at stake for Republicans, Democrats in midterms now that primary election season is over

The six-month 2022 primary election slog finally comes to a close Tuesday in what promises to be the most expensive and consequential non-presidential election in American history. 

What began in Texas back in March and wraps up in New Hampshire this week and sets the stage for an epic 55-day sprint to Election Day that will be like no other midterm campaign we’ve ever witnessed.

What’s at stake is control of both Houses of Congress and dozens of pivotal gubernatorial and state attorneys general posts. But setting aside all the money, all the noise, and all the political gamesmanship for a moment, it all comes down to one simple question: are you better off today than you were two years ago?

In New Hampshire’s primary elections, the final piece of the puzzle in this year’s handful of competitive U.S. Senate races will be decided. President Joe Biden’s ally in the U.S. Senate incumbent Democrat Maggie Hassan will be running against either retired Army General Don Bolduc or State Senator Chuck Morse in the general election.

The race in New Hampshire represents one of the top four pick-up opportunities for Republicans in their quest to win back control of the Senate, which is currently deadlocked at 50 - 50. Left-wing Vice President Kamala Harris currently possesses the tie-breaking vote.

Sen. Hassan has used her vote to make the disastrous Biden-Harris agenda a reality. Because of Hassan’s votes in favor of Biden’s falsely labeled, inflation-causing trillion dollar spending bills, American families are feeling stress just to get by in the midst of an economic recession -- a recession that might have been avoided if Sen. Hassan did the right thing.

Hassan’s irresponsible votes have cemented her status as an endangered politician; she’s polling well below 50 percent in a potential general election match-up versus either Bolduc or Morse. Many believe that control of the U.S. Senate could come down to what voters in the "Live Free or Die" state decide.

The primary elections for U.S. House in both of New Hampshire’s congressional districts are also key races in the grand scheme of things. Both seats are currently held by tone-deaf liberal Democrats and are listed as "toss-ups" that may well be part of the equation that allows House Republicans to regain the majority. Speaker Pelosi and the radical Democrats are defending a miniscule five seat majority, so the oft-used phrase "every seat counts" doesn’t do this year’s political situation justice.

Recent headlines such as, "N.H. poll: Biden's favorability in the state is at an all-time low," are proving to be a massive drag on incumbent Democrats trying to stay above water in the critical campaigns that will decide who controls Congress in 2023. The Democrat’s "Biden problem" is hardly just a New Hampshire concern; it’s a factor in battleground states with Senate, House, and gubernatorial contests up for grabs in every corner of the country.

At the end of the day, President Biden’s radical left-wing policies and harsh rhetoric toward half of our citizens have made Americans more divisive and less hopeful about the future. And perhaps most importantly, with his unhinged spending habits, tax increases, socialist loan forgiveness programs, and army of new IRS agents, the president has created an environment of economic uncertainty for families and job creators at the worst possible time.

When the next Consumer Price Index report comes out this week, maybe we’ll find out how much "pain" -- in the words of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell -- is in store for American households and businesses.

Democrats Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer are out of touch career politicians who’ve been in Washington a combined 120 years. That means their priorities don’t match the priorities of everyday Americans.

Under the complete control of the Biden-Pelosi-Schumer triumvirate, our borders are wide open to criminals and fentanyl; our neighborhoods are far less safe; our public schools have been transformed into incubators for wokeism; and hardworking Americans are struggling mightily to make ends meet.

After seeing all that’s transpired over the past two years, the American people can end this catastrophic Democrat abuse of power once and for all.

They must give the Biden administration a much-needed check and balance by voting for their Republican candidate for U.S. Senate and U.S. House come this November.

DAVID BOSSIE ON THE SARA CARTER PODCAST

Citizens United President David Bossie joins Sara to discuss the approaching midterm elections and the challenges and opportunities facing the Republican Party. Bossie explains that the media will focus more on President Trump than President Biden over these final weeks because focusing on the Biden record would hurt the Democrats - whom most reporters support.

They also discuss what message the GOP should be focused on over these final two months, why the skyrocketing rate of violent crime needs to be front and center and whether Trump will actually run again in 2024.
