Former Secretary of State and current Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is facing serious legal questions.

It’s unavoidable; you turn on the television, open a newspaper, log on to social media, or listen to the radio, and it’s all about Hillary’s self-made email investigation. She is drowning in her excuses du jour and changing story lines that reek of corruption. It’s undeniable that she has a lot of questions to answer for the American public as well as the law enforcement community.

Many, including all of us at Citizens United, are dedicated to getting those answers. Some call her deceitful, while others say she’s just paranoid in setting up a secret email system. I, on the other hand, have one word that describes Hillary Clinton in this matter of national security: Reckless.

When we think of a great American leader, we think of words such as strong, principled, and optimistic. Reckless is probably the last trait a potential President of the United States should be associated with. Unfortunately for Hillary, she has rightfully earned this description. From the conflicts of interest surrounding Clinton Foundation donations, to holding top secret U.S. government information on an insecure and previously undisclosed email system; these problems are all her doing.

This week, we learned that Hillary’s private email firm, Platte River Services, ran its company out of a loft apartment and stored its servers in a bathroom closet. This raises serious questions regarding the protection of the data on this seemingly exposed server and what that means for U.S. national security interests. Why in Colorado? Why such a virtually unknown firm? Why take no precautions at all? No security clearances for the staff handling the server? This is simply reckless behavior.

America’s constitutionally protected religious liberties are under attack. Time and time again, we’ve witnessed these liberties targeted, threatened, and abused by liberal policies, politicians, and judges in the name of “equality.” Citizens United, and our half million members across the nation, are fed up defending a right that shouldn’t need defense. But, we must defeat the Left’s war on religion, which is why we support H.R. 2802 – The First Amendment Defense Act.

The First Amendment to the Constitution is crystal clear on the issue of religious liberty in America. However, the recent 5 to 4 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in Obergefell v. Hodges makes immediate passage of this act absolutely essential.

In argument before the Supreme Court, U.S. Solicitor General Verrilli told Justice Alito that religious institutions holding a fundamental belief in the traditional definition of marriage could very well lose their tax-exempt status if the Court voted to recognize gay marriage.

President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry made a terrible nuclear deal with Iran, a nation that has proven time and time again that they cannot be trusted.

Irresponsible concessions were made that jeopardize the safety of America and our great ally, Israel. Now, the decision is in the hands of Congress. Congress must stand up and reject this deal that President Obama and Secretary Kerry are trying to impose on the American people.

The Iran nuclear deal poses an imminent threat to American and Israeli citizens. The concessions made to the Iranian government provide no confidence that Iran will live up to its end of the bargain. Facility checks are few and far between, allowing for a concealment of nuclear production. Beyond the Obama Administration’s cagey disclosure of the full details of the Iran deal, it was made in the wake of Iranian citizens chanting in streets across their country, “Death to America and Israel.” Regardless of the deal’s technicalities and timeline, the overall concern remains: Iran will have an easier opportunity to obtain and use nuclear weapons under this deal. This unacceptable outcome will cause immediate harm to America and Israel.

For those who still have a difficult time understanding the severity of this threat, intelligence officials have stated that documents captured in the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound include information on Iran’s relationship with al Qaeda over the past two decades. This information includes details of Iran’s support for al Qaeda’s attacks on Americans. Without any hesitation, I would demand that these documents, filled with extremely significant information, be made public immediately.

The majority of America, however, is very aware of the gravity of the situation. Recent poll numbers indicate that 57 percent of the American people oppose the deal, and 58 percent believe it will make the world less safe. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu articulated the concerns of many with his statement: “In the coming decade, the deal will reward Iran, the terrorist regime in Tehran, with hundreds of billions of dollars. This cash bonanza will fuel Iran’s terrorism worldwide, its aggression in the region and its efforts to destroy Israel, which are ongoing.” I agree and stand firmly by Israel’s side.

With the direction our society is taking, I get more and more concerned for our children and grandchildren with each passing day. ,p>Our youth are growing up in liberal school systems with books teaching same sex marriage. We see teachers pushing for sex education, birth control, and providing condoms to kids who are years from hitting puberty. Climate change and income equality dialogues race through school halls, libraries, and activist groups across the nation.

Students are inspired by so-called “heroes” like Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara, an evil Marxist murderer, but can’t recognize Ronald Reagan, one of our greatest Presidents, as anything more than a Hollywood actor. Colleges, entertainment, and the media indoctrinate our young adults, molding them into on-fire progressives who are used as ‘sheeple’ to achieve the liberal left’s agenda.

Breitbart: Bossie: The John Boehner Problem

After three election cycles and more than four and half years, grassroots conservatives have grown tired of waiting for John Boehner to pass the conservative agenda he’s repeatedly promised. Time and time again, Boehner has failed to provide a vision or use the robust majority in the U.S. House - which conservatives provided him - to advance our policies. Instead, Speaker Boehner has allowed President Obama to set the debate, set the terms, and summarily clean our clocks. Meekly, Boehner drifts along aimlessly and legislates by cliff and crisis, instead of bringing forward an optimistic agenda of bold colors that the American people crave.

It looks as though his empty promises and inaction may be catching up to him. Citizens United recently surveyed a cross-section of our members nationwide about congressional approval and whether their Member of Congress should vote to re-elect John Boehner as Speaker of the House. Of the 4,025 polled, less than 6 percent would want their Representative to re-elect Boehner as House Speaker if the election were held today. Grassroots conservatives are through being patient with John Boehner.

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.

President Obama rewrote our nation’s immigration laws with just the stroke of his pen. This may turn out to be the most dangerous and disruptive action of his presidency. He disregarded the separation of powers and acted in clear defiance of Congress. In doing so, he promoted and rewarded illegal immigration, while putting our national security further at risk.

Obama’s amnesty scheme also has far-ranging economic consequences. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) programs have resulted in the deferred deportations of millions of illegal immigrants. Under the current provisions of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit (CTC) many of these illegal immigrants will qualify for a financial windfall of as much $35,000. This could result in the spending of over $10 billion in taxpayer funds.

Citizens United's Letter to the Clinton Foundation

As you are aware, media reports have confirmed that the Clinton Foundation accepted donations from foreign governments and other foreign entities during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State. I write on behalf of the 500,000 members of Citizens United nationwide who are concerned that these donations open the door to conflicts of interests that could jeopardize U.S. national security now or in the future...

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.

The Washington Post: Changing pay-to-play politics

As the April 6 editorial “Political speech or corruption?” argued, it’s easier and easier in this post-Citizens United world for big campaign donors to attempt to influence our elected officials or even effectively select each party’s nominee months before voters get to weigh in.

While we should not rush to judge Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), one thing is clear: Campaign finance reform should occur through legislation, not selective prosecution. We need to change our system so that everyone’s voice is heard, everyone knows who is trying to buy influence over government and politicians play by common-sense rules and are held accountable.

While we’re making progress around disclosure and public financing on the local level from Maine to Montana, we need our national leaders not just to promise better politics or to clean up Washington but also to take action to create the changes we need. And President Obama has a chance to do just that by signing an executive order requiring federal government contractors to disclose political spending.
