President Trump Support Reform At The UN

President Trump has supported reform at the United Nations for a long time.  Watch his 2005 clip from Citizens United’s documentary “Broken Promises:  The United Nations at 60”


President Trump has called getting tax reform signed into law a “once in a generation opportunity” and he’s exactly right.  That’s why the White House and Congressional Republicans must keep their eyes on the prize in the critical days and weeks ahead.   After a tough seven months of working hard to reform our broken health care system before it collapses only to come up one vote short, leaders on both sides of Pennsylvania Avenue are frustrated and rightly so.  They’re frustrated that they haven’t done an adequate job corroborating on policy implementation or combating Democrat obstruction and a hyper-politicized mainstream media.  But with every challenge in politics comes opportunity.  President Trump, Senator McConnell, and Speaker Ryan need to make the most of this opportunity by plotting a successful strategy and then executing on it.



The mainstream media is driving the narrative that the Trump-McConnell-Ryan relationship is too far gone to right the ship. This is a false narrative that can be demonstrably proven wrong by working together and communicating to achieve a goal. I believe the media’s deceptive narrative will ultimately be debunked because Republicans are aware that they made promises, were put in charge to enact those promises, and have a responsibility to keep the promises. The American people are starving for something good to come out of Washington. The stakes are high and it’s time to deliver. I’m optimistic that Republicans will make it happen.

The White House plan to get President Trump on the road to sell tax reform in several states he carried that have a Democrat Senator up for re-election is important and a big step in the right direction. In these “Trump” states major public support exists for tax reform. In fact, recent polling indicates that there’s “average support of 68.43 percent across 10 key states” for tax reform. The American economy is ready to take off. Job creators are ready to hire. Businesses are ready to invest. Consumers are ready to spend. They are hungry for lower tax rates and a pro-growth tax code. They want stability and assurances that a new economic playing field is coming and will be here to stay so concrete decisions for the future can be made.

Now that we’re past the debt ceiling and government funding issue (for the time being), President Trump and Vice President Pence need to convince House and Senate Republicans to put aside their differences and come together for the greater good, that is, their fellow countrymen. First a budget, and then robust tax reform, must be debated, passed, and signed into law now so it can take effect immediately. It simply has to happen this year. Republicans must be able to tell voters that tax reform is the law of the land when they start to campaign next fall.

CU & CUF Join With Other Conservatives In Defending Religious Liberty

Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation joins with other conservative groups in filing a U.S. Supreme Court amicus brief defending the right of a Christian baker to refuse to design a custom wedding cake celebrating the wedding of a gay couple.  The brief, which was filed in Masterpiece Cakeshop v.Colorado Civil Rights Commission, contends that Colorado's effort to force the baker to create a custom cake for a gay couple violates the First Amendment's freedom of religion clause and is "an indicia of a totalitarian state, where the state will not allow individuals to be left alone, but must be brought to conform" with the political agenda of the gay rights community.  "The question now," says the brief, "is whether this Court will disregard well-established legal principles in order to throw to the wolves those who continue to embrace Biblical values and teachings."

Citizens United signs on to coalition letter: NO DEBT LIMIT INCREASE WITHOUT FISCAL REFORMS

Citizens United signs on to coalition letter:  NO DEBT LIMIT INCREASE WITHOUT FISCAL REFORMS 

September 6, 2017
Washington, DC

Congress faces numerous deadlines when they return to session in September. In addition to funding the government, providing relief for victims of Hurricane Harvey, and reauthorizing several major programs, they face a debt limit expiration.

Conservatives oppose any debt ceiling increase unless it includes major fiscal reforms that immediately put the country on a path to balance.

That these reforms are necessary is self-evident. The debt now stands at 77 percent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) – the highest level since shortly after World War II. Last year, the Congressional Budget Office estimated that the U.S. debt would balloon to 150 percent of economic output by 2047 unless tax and spending laws are changed. As Harvard economists Carmen Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff have concluded, a debt to GDP ratio of above 90 percent all but grinds economic growth to a halt.

The timing of this debt limit increase is particularly compelling given the previous progress conservatives have made on fiscal issues under a Democratic administration and Democratic Senate. The Budget Control Act – the most significant progress conservatives have made in decades – was passed as part of a debt limit negotiation with a Democrat president and a Democrat majority in the Senate.

With Republicans in unified control of the government this time around, settling for minor reforms – or, worse, for a debt ceiling increase with no reforms – would be a squandered opportunity.

Now is the time for Congress to cut the credit card. The debt ceiling should not be raised absent significant fiscal reforms that put the country on a path to balance. Any less would be a wasted opportunity to reform a fiscal system that is hurtling toward disaster.

Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation join amicus brief in support of the 2nd Amendment:

"Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation joined forces with other conservatives in urging the U.S. Supreme Court to review and overturn a recent decision by the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, which held that civilian possession of certain semi-automatic firearms, such as the popular AR-15, is not protected by the 2nd Amendment.   The brief urges the Justices to 'reign in the lower courts' with legal guidance enforcing the 2nd Amendment as a right of equal magnitude with other constitutional rights."

Citizens United & Citizens United Foundation file amicus brief in support of President Trump’s immigration executive order.

In our "merits" Supreme Court amicus brief, Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation contend that President Trump's Executive Order on immigration does not implicate, much less violate, the First Amendment’s prohibition against the "establishment" of an official government-backed religion.  We also assert that the President had undeniable authority to issue the order because the power to control a nation's borders is an inherent attribute of national sovereignty, and since President Trump was acting pursuant to express congressional authorization his power was at its zenith.

David Bossie Op-Ed: Liberal media wrong about 2020

First they said he would never run for president.  Then they said he would never be the Republican nominee for president.  Then they said he could never be elected president.  The latest false narrative being pushed by the liberal media is that some Republicans are making moves to run against President Trump in 2020. 

These fake news stories are in the interests of the liberal agenda because they raise manufactured questions about the president’s standing with Republican primary voters and are meant to cause division among conservatives. Try as they might, the American people are too smart for the elitist gamesmanship going on in the boardrooms at the New York Times and Washington Post.

Here’s the unfortunate reality for liberal Democrats and other so-called “Never Trumpers:” President Trump is in great shape with grassroots conservatives (regardless of party affiliation) across the country and with good reason. He’s making good on his promises.

On pro-life issues, the National Right to Life Committee gave President Trump an "A" grade for his performance through his first 100 days in office. On 2nd Amendment rights, President Trump is the first president to address the National Rifle Association leadership forum in 34 years and their Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said that he sees “a tremendous pride wave out there in the heartland of the country with this president.” Social conservative leaders praised President Trump’s recent decision to not allow transgender people to serve in the military. And if all this isn’t enough to satisfy conservatives, Justice Neil Gorsuch’s stellar service on the Supreme Court is icing on the cake.

There’s much more that conservatives like about the job President Trump is doing. When it comes to sanctuary city reform and border security, President Trump’s leadership has exceeded all expectations. In fact, President Trump has been so effective in dealing with sanctuary city lawlessness that elitist liberal Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is suing the Trump Administration to try and keep Chicago a dangerous sanctuary city.

I could go on and on, but one thing is clear: President Trump is an outsider and a change agent and conservatives are elated that President Trump wakes up in the morning to fight the failed status quo in Washington and the biased mainstream news media that only does the bidding of out-of-touch liberals in New York and San Francisco.

No one knows this better than Vice President Mike Pence. Since becoming President Trump’s running mate a little over a year ago, Vice President Pence has been a full partner with the president in their mission to enact their conservative reform agenda and “Make America Great Again.” The vice president is focused like a laser beam on fixing health care, tax reform, and various other initiatives and is doing a great job. When Vice President Pence travels to Iowa or Ohio to advocate for the president’s agenda it means exactly that and nothing more. President Trump and Vice President Pence are looking forward to defeating Congresswoman Maxine Waters or whatever leftist the out-of-control Democrat Party nominates in 2020.

Also mentioned in some of these disingenuous “news” stories has been career politician John Kasich. Ohio Governor Kasich ran for president in 2000 and 2016. In 2000, he didn’t make it to the primaries and in 2016 he won only his home state of Ohio. President Trump carried Ohio and other Rust Belt states during the general election because his outsider message connected with millions of voters in a way Kasich could not, largely because he was a longtime Washington politician.

President Trump has been in office for only 200 days and yet the mainstream media is already trying to start the 2020 campaign for president. Are there really Americans out there itching to start watching coverage of the 2020 race even before the 2018 midterms take place? Or is it just because contentious presidential elections are the only thing that sells failing newspapers anymore?

I submit that most reasonable hardworking American taxpayers want to give their president a chance to succeed because if his agenda is enacted, people’s lives will improve.

David N. Bossie is President of Citizens United, a Fox News Contributor and the former Deputy Campaign Manager for Donald Trump for President.
