Statement From David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United

"The outdated and predictable Clinton attacks on Peter Schweizer's much anticipated book, "Clinton Cash" are a blast from the past, just like the Clinton's themselves.

Throughout the scandal-plagued Clinton Administration, when damaging information was about to become public the Clinton attack machine would crank into high gear.

First you smear the author, then you smear the media for reporting on the book, then you call the allegations old news, and then you say the allegations amount to a political witch hunt that are 100percent false. This would happen every time, like clockwork. All these years later - what we all now know - is that this means what's in the book is true.

Every American who cares about the future of their country should read this book."

David Bossie bio:

Citizens United President David N. Bossie previously served as Chief Investigator for the U.S. House Committee on Government Reform and Oversight during the Clinton Administration.

In this capacity, Bossie led the way on several high profile investigations during the scandal-plagued 1990s, such as Whitewater, Travelgate, and the campaign finance probe, which resulted in more than 100 individuals fleeing the country or invoking the 5th Amendment.

Breitbart: LEFTISTS STILL SHOUTING ‘FIRE!’ OVER CITIZENS UNITED RULING

We all know that you can’t shout “fire” in a crowded theater. The Supreme Court has said as much. That hasn’t stopped Hillary Clinton and the liberal media from doing just that in response to the landmark Supreme Court decision in Citizens United v. FEC.

The case, which has been settled law for more than five years, continues to inspire visceral reactions from leftists. Just this week Hillary Clinton tried to rally her base by arguing, “We need to fix our dysfunctional political system and get unaccountable money out of it once and for all, even if that takes a constitutional amendment.” It’s the same tired tactic that Barack Obama used in 2010 to rally liberals and Harry Reid resurrected in 2014 to mobilize voters. And with all the shady foreign money that flowed into the Democrat National Committee and Clinton-Gore re-election campaign in 1996, Hillary Clinton is not exactly a credible voice for good government campaign finance reform measures.

National Review: Hillary Says We Should Rewrite the First Amendment, If That’s What It Takes to Reverse Citizens United

Hillary Clinton endorsed a constitutional amendment today to reverse the Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United v. FEC​. Clinton said that the Citizens United ruling should be reversed “once and for all, even if it takes a constitutional amendment,” according to MSNBC’s Ari Melber.

In Citizens United, the Court ruled that the First Amendment protects unlimited independent political expenditures by nonprofit groups. The case famously arose when Citizens United, a conservative nonprofit corporation that produces documentaries, made a movie attacking Clinton and released advertisements promoting the movie during her presidential campaign in 2008. A federal court ruled that the regnant campaign laws banned the airing of those ads and the movie in the 30 days prior to the Democratic primaries.

The Wall Street Journal: Hillary: The Censor Citizens United was about the right to criticize her.

“I think it’s fair to say that . . . the deck is still stacked in favor of those already at the top,” declared Hillary Clinton in Monticello, Iowa, yesterday. She might have added: And that’s why it is clear even now that I am going to be the Democratic nominee for president of the United States.

National Journal reports that Mrs. Clinton was “speaking to just 22 people.” That’s true if your definition of “person” excludes corporations—specifically media corporations—and their employees, for “those [22] Iowans were far outnumbered by the dozens of reporters who were bunched together behind a thin yellow rope at the back of the room”:

Breitbart: HILLARY CALLS FOR CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT TO LIMIT POLITICAL SPEECH, BLASTS CEOS, HEDGE FUND MANAGERS

In her first campaign appearance since announcing her candidacy on Sunday, Hillary Clinton called for a constitutional amendment to restrict political speech by overturning the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Clinton also tried to frame herself as a populist by blasting CEOs and hedge fund managers.

At a Tuesday roundtable event at Kirkwood Community College in Monticello, Iowa, Clinton said that there is “something wrong” when “CEOs make 300 times” what the average worker makes and “hedge fund managers pay lower tax rates than nurses and truckers that I saw along I-80.” Clinton’s son-in-law is a hedge fund manager for a fund some may have invested in to gain favor with the Clintons.

Associated Press: Citizens United launches Utah ads supporting Mike Lee

The conservative group Citizens United is launching an advertising campaign in Utah urging residents to call U.S. Sen. Mike Lee and thank him for his conservative policies.

Citizens United president David Bossie says the group wants Utah residents to recognize Lee and enable him to feel confident in his agenda. They've spent $200,000 on the campaign, which launched Monday. Bossie says they may spend more in the months ahead.

He says his group is not worried that the Republican senator could face a primary challenge when he runs for re-election next year. No candidate has emerged.

Breitbart: EXCLUSIVE — CITIZENS UNITED BOOSTS MIKE LEE’S CONSERVATIVE REFORM AGENDA IN UTAH WITH NEW HEFTY AD CAMPAIGN

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) is about to get a big boost back home in Utah from national conservative group Citizens United, which is launching a $200,000 television, radio and digital ad buy thanking Lee for his work on the conservative reform agenda.

“His plan helps working families and the middle class to prosper with Utah leading the way. Senator Mike Lee, an innovative leader,” a narrator says in the new television ad, shared exclusively with Breitbart News ahead of its public release. “Mike Lee’s conservative reform agenda lowers the cost of higher education so we open more doors of opportunity, eliminates unfair tax penalties for parents, paves the way to better roads, less traffic and more job creation. A principled, problem-solving plan. Call Mike Lee and thank him for the conservative reform agenda.”

Citizens United president David Bossie, in an interview with Breitbart News, said the ad campaign will start on Tuesday on television and online, then will add a “heavy radio component” beginning next week.

Breitbart: NBC’S ‘AMERICAN ODYSSEY’ PITS OCCUPY VS. CITIZENS UNITED

NBC’s new show American Odyssey is a retelling of Homer’s classic tale and also, according to its creators, an illustration of the dangers of Citizens United to American democracy.

The show focuses on Sgt. Odelle Ballard, a woman soldier working with special forces in North Africa. Odelle’s team stumbles upon evidence that a major U.S. corporation has been funding terrorism and are promptly attacked by a blackwater-type private security firm working for the company. Odelle survives thanks to a Muslim boy named Aslam who becomes her guide and protector in her odyssey to return to the United States.

Meanwhile, on the homefront, an Occupy-themed activist learns of a text message Odelle sent just before her escape. He and his group thus become part of the struggle against the corporation and the U.S. military which claims Odelle is dead.
