Washington Post: Freedom Summit draws GOP hopefuls to N.H.

When you ask the New Hampshire residents attending the inaugural Freedom Summit why they’re here, there’s a very good chance this is their first reaction, followed by a reverent recitation of the names that drew more than 700 people to a hotel conference center Saturday morning.

There’s Ted Cruz, whom Jean Ferreira, 55, was most excited to see at the event organized by Americans for Prosperity and Citizens United. Ferreira is wearing a “Truth Has No Agenda” T-shirt but has another in her bag that says “I Cruz With Ted.” “I’m praying he’ll sign it,” she said.

Reuters: Legal victory for big-money campaign donors to be felt in states, courts

David Bossie, president of Citizens United, the conservative advocacy group whose lawsuit led to the 2010 court ruling that paved the way for unlimited spending and fundraising by independent Super PACs and nonprofit groups, agreed.

"Candidates will be able to raise a few more dollars. But the Democratic and Republican Party committees will benefit."

NewsMax: Citizens United's Bossie - Court Ruling Protects Personal Rights

Wednesday's Supreme Court ruling eliminating aggregate donation limits from individual donors has been called the next Citizens United. Dave Bossie, the president and chairman of Citizens United, the nonprofit advocacy group that won a similar landmark Supreme Court case in 2010, says he takes that as a compliment.

"I'm really happy for Mr. McCutcheon, it really takes courage to take on the resources of the United States government. That's what he did, that's what we did many years ago," Bossie told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV Thursday, referring to Shaun McCutcheon, the plaintiff in Wednesday's case.

Wall Street Journal: Legal Experts React to Supreme Court’s Campaign-Finance Ruling

Wednesday’s 5-4 ruling on political contributions in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission is considered by some legal experts to be a companion to the court’s 2010 ruling, called Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission.

The earlier decision threw out limits on what any individual can give to federal candidates over a two-year election cycle. Wednesday’s majority opinion, by Chief Justice John Roberts, said those caps infringe on free-speech rights and are not justified by a governmental interest in combating political corruption. Justice Stephen Breyer‘s dissent, joined by the rest of the liberal wing, said the aggregate cap fights corruption.

Breitbart.com: Bozell, Bossie Attack CPAC’S Handeling Of Atheist Group

On Tuesday it was announced that the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) had decided to allow the group American Atheists to have a booth at this year's event, but nearly as soon as it was announced, CPAC officials pulled the invitation.

Regardless, the original invitation was enough to spur prominent conservative Brent Bozell to pull out of the longtime conservative event, charging that CPAC is "destroying the conservative movement."

Public Integrity – Next up: ‘Citizens United v. IRS’?

Four years ago, the Supreme Court's Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission decision remade the rules for how political campaigns are waged.

Could a Citizens United v. Internal Revenue Service case be next?

Yes, says David Bossie, the outspoken president of Citizens United — if the IRS enacts plans to restrict how certain tax-exempt nonprofit groups spend their money on politicking, as the agency says it may do.

"I can commit with certitude that Citizens United will not sit by while any government agency tries to violate our 1st Amendment rights," Bossie told the Center for Public Integrity today. "We have a proven track record of winning, and we're not afraid to take the fight to them. You'll see a Citizens United v. IRS."

National Review – One Year Ago: ‘What Difference, at This Point, Does It Make?’

Citizens United wants you to check out their new video, marking the one-year anniversary of Hillary’s Benghazi testimony. I asked them, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”

Breitbart: Citizens United Launches Campaign To Push Constitutional Amendment Forcing Congress To Abide By Own Laws

On Tuesday, Citizens United announced a campaign to raise awareness about a proposed Constitutional amendment that would prohibit members of Congress from exempting themselves from federal laws. H.J. Resolution 55, sponsored by Congressmen Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and Matt Salmon (R-AZ), has been introduced in order to stop the sort of abuses attendant on the passage of Obamacare, in which members of Congress crafted waiver language carving them out of laws they meant to prescribe on everyone else.

Mother Jones: Will an Anti-Hillary Sequel Again Rock American Politics?

So it begins—the revival of the right-wing's get-Hillary crusade.

The conservative outfit Citizens United, which in 2008 released the anti-Hillary Clinton film that led to the 2010 Supreme Court decision that removed restrictions on supposedly independent political spending for federal campaigns, is working on a new flick assailing the former secretary of state, and it will be released just in time for the next presidential campaign.
