Bossie: The Las Vegas attack's unsung heroes - say a prayer of thanks for our first responders

Monday was a dark day in American history.   The massacre of innocence in Las Vegas that left 59 dead and more than 500 wounded and injured at the hands of a shooter perched on the 32nd floor of a high rise casino hotel is a real-life nightmare that reminds us that there is "pure evil" in the world. 

President Trump delivered a stirring tribute to those who perished as well as the unsung heroes of the Las Vegas massacre. First responders ran toward an active shooter situation that became a mass casualty event. As scores of terrified concert goers ran for their lives, police, fire, and other emergency personnel acted quickly to subdue the gunman and treat the wounded.

Today we should all stop and say a prayer of thanks for our police men and women - the thin blue line – who quietly and without fanfare, go about their jobs knowing that a tragedy may come their way at any moment. We’ve already started hearing the stories about the bravery of those who sacrificed their lives so others might live as concert goers responded to the call of their fellow citizens in need.

Sunday night unthinkable tragedy came to Vegas and our first responders, police, fire, and emergency workers, stepped up with extraordinary valor and their acts of courage saved lives. As a volunteer firefighter/EMT in Maryland for over fifteen years, I know that the scene from last night's attack will be seared into the minds of the first responders for the rest of their lives. When these American heroes arrived at the scene, little did they know that they would be entering a war zone with a battlefield of dead and wounded. These first responders didn't think twice, they went to work - just like they always do. These unthinkable images will have a deep psychological impact on the police and first responders who found themselves on the front line of terror. They deserve our deepest gratitude.

Now the doctors and nurses and hospital workers will work around the clock to saves lives and heal the wounded. Like New York City, Sandy Hook, Boston, Orlando, and others before, the Las Vegas community will rise to the occasion and come together. Americans from around the country will hold them up in prayer every step of the way. President Trump will do his part and lead by example as comforter-in-chief when he visits Nevada on Wednesday. His respect for the men and women of law enforcement, fire service, EMS, and hospital medical staff is apparent and that makes me very proud of our president.

These are the dark times when petty partisan politics and the left's desperate assault on the 2nd Amendment should take a back seat. All of us should be reflecting about what is truly important in our lives and in our country instead.

When violent events take place, when horrific acts unfold in any town at any moment in our country, I am grateful for our everyday heroes, our first responders and leaders like President Trump and Vice President Pence who take time to honor their service.

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

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.
