End Citizens United Files Complaint Against Rick Scott

     End Citizens United has recently filed a complaint against Rick Scott to the Federal election commission. End Citizens United is one of the country’s largest political action committees. It was first formed in the aftermath of the Supreme Court decision on the court case Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commision. As a result of this court case and the decision made by the Supreme Court the regulations which limited a corporation’s ability to donate political campaigns were eliminated. This decision has been met with a significant amount of controversy as individuals across the country believe that corporations should not be able to donate unlimited funding to political party members.

The recent decision by End Citizens United to file a complaint against Rick Scott was a result of Rick Scott raising nearly $1.2 million before announcing his run for Senate through mega-donors. By raising the money ahead of announcing his run for Senate, he was able to bypass limitations on federal contribution limits. It is hoped that by filing a complaint with the Federal election commission End Citizens, United will be able to reduce the likelihood that Rick Scott will be able to be elected.

End Citizens United is currently led by Tiffany Muller and Matt Burgess, both members of the Democratic political party. End Citizens United was first formed in 2015 and was able to take part in the election cycle of 2016. During this election cycle End Citizens United was able to raise $25 million from its members. This represents one of the largest grassroots funding accomplishments made by any political action committee in the country.

Rick Scott is a member of the Big Money 20. The Big Money 20 is a group of individuals which have been identified by End Citizens United as catering to billionaires and corporate interests. These individuals have been known to have accepted large donations from mega-donors and corporations. One of the key missions during this midterm election cycle in 2018 for End Citizens United is to eliminate as many members of the Big Money 20 from their positions of political power as possible. In order to do this End Citizens United has promised to generate $35 million worth of political campaign contributions and use this money in order to support key members of the Democratic Party which End Citizens United has labeled as champions of campaign-finance reform. It is there hope that by supporting these candidates reform in the political campaign-finance process will be achieved.

Michael Lacey On Trump Pardoning Sheriff Joe

You may remember Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey from a number of years ago. These two journalists were the subject of a national news breaking story. They were the two journalists who were arrested in the middle of the night by officers sent by Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

He had them arrested because they were writing stories about him that did not paint him in a good light. You see, these two journalists were not afraid to report on the horrible way Sheriff Joe Arpaio was abusing his power and discriminating against inmates and immigrants.

However, after they were arrested, other media publications started reporting on what he did. They also reported on all of his past scandals and atrocities. It became a national news story.

Soon, he had to release them. They filed a lawsuit against Sheriff Joe Arpaio for his abuse of power and their illegal arrest. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey won the lawsuit. They settled for over three and a half million dollars.

How does this tie in with President Trump? Well, you see, after the lawsuit, Sheriff Joe Arpaio went through some hard times in his career, although he definitely deserved it. People saw him for who he really is and they did not reelect him to the role of Sheriff in his community.

Next, he was cited for contempt of court for his actions during a lawsuit against him. However, because of his experience with right wing politicians, he was able to get access to the ear of President Donald Trump.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio endorsed President Trump early on when others still thought that his presidential bid was a joke and that it would never succeed. He did this because he made some good calculations about what would happen to him if President Trump would win.

In fact, Trump liked that Sheriff Joe Arpaio was kissing up to him, and he mentioned that he might pardon him. When he became President, he actually did pardon him. Why did he do it, however? What was the real motive behind it?

Michael Lacey, who as you recall is one of the journalists who was arrested by Sheriff Joe Arpaio, thinks that the reason that Donald Trump pardoned Sheriff Joe Arpaio was that he was trying to pander to his base of nationalists and right wing activists who believe that Sheriff Joe Arpaio is a hero for the way he was discriminating against immigrants.

That is what Trump has been doing his entire political career. He will pander to right wing activists and nationalists so that he can get their votes. It does not matter what he does and says. He does not care how wrong it may be.

Anyway, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey realized the dire straits that immigrants under Sheriff Joe Arpaio were in. They were suffering, so they used the money they got from the lawsuit to start the Frontera Fund to help them out.

Sujit Choudhry’s take on democratic decline

Democracy is in crisis. In his book chapter to be published in Constitutional Democracy in Crisis, Sujit Choudhry explains his reasons for this belief (works.bepress.com). This chapter focuses on Eric Holder’s tweet in December 2017. Mr Holder served as the former Attorney General in President Barack Obama’s reign. In his tweet, Mr Holder called for mass action in regard to what he called the red line. His tweet stated that the termination of Robert Mueller, White House Special Counsel, would be crossing the line. Mr Holder urged Americans to hold peaceful demonstrations if the Special Counsel is terminated.

According Sujit Choudhry, world democracy is backsliding. Instead of rulers turning to dictatorship, they are using the constitution to stick to power. Once elected, the governing constitution gives a limit to the reigning president’s term. To ensure that the president regains office, the political party in power introduces technicalities that either allow them to tamper with the elections or declare a state of emergency. This robs the electorate of their democratic rights. They are forced to give way to the reigning political party’s desire. In a way, they are being dictated.

In his book, the professor gives an example of the Polish government. The government used political technicalities, including capturing the constitutional tribunal, to eliminate the opposition and to ensure its rule continues in the coming elections. This undermines the people’s right to choose freely who to rule over them. It also prevents them from freely expressing their opinion concerning the leadership.

Mr Sujit Choudhry is a professor of law in the University of California. He specializes on constitutional law. He has done research in comparative constitutional and law (blogs.law.nyu.edu). His research focuses on the constitution as a tool of transition from violent political environments to democratic environments. Mr Choudhry has also done research and written extensively on the Canadian law.

Professor Sujit Choudhry is the founding director of Centers for Constitutional Transitions. Through this institution, Mr Choudhry has been a constitutional advisor for decades. He has facilitated public talks with different stake holders of a government, trained civil servants and offered technical advice to ensure the constitutional demands are fulfilled.

The Remarkable Investment Insights Offered by Stansberry Research

Donald Trump made a significant announcement about the plans to impose trade tariffs on imports such as aluminum and steel. President Trump added that steel would attract tariffs of 25 percent while a 10 percent tariff would be applied to aluminum. The terms were said to apply to all trading partners of the U.S.

However, congressional Republicans strongly opposed the proposal. The administration team of Mr. Trump also opposed the proposal. As a result, people believe that president Trump will change the plan. Trump’s economic adviser, Gary Cohn, sharply criticized the plan saying that it is not viable. While serving at the White House, Gary led several changes such as rewriting financial rules and revamping the United States tax code.

Increased federal budget deficits which were approved by Mr. Donald may lead to a rise in interest and inflation rate as a result of his willingness to cause a ‘trade war.’ If such tariffs are also imposed on Chinese imports, there could be increased adverse impacts to the economy of the U.S. Additionally, the move could lead to a loss to the majority but only benefit countable Americans. The move could as well trigger retaliation from the U.S trading partners (http://dailywealth.co/reclusive.html). Since Mr. Cohn was set to step down, his departure could cause negative impacts, especially to investors. Most people admired Mr. Cohn for the way he handled trade-related issues.

Changing the Face of Canvassing, NGP VAN, Pilots its Distributed Canvassing App

In 2010, technology met and married activism, when NGP Software and The Voter Activation Network became NGP VAN, a platform catering to the specific needs of progressive and democratic fund-raising and non-profit entities, with highly advanced technical solutions aimed at improving essential areas of campaign and money-raising.

NGP VAN is known for creating user-friendly tools that help campaign workers and fundraisers to monitor their support systems, canvass voters, handle online donations, ensure regulatory compliance,and much more. Their list of users encompasses a virtual who’s who of environmentally conscious and socially progressive causes and democratic bigwigs, including Senator Elizabeth Warren, President Barack Obama, The National Audubon Society, Comic Relief, Greenpeace and Girls Inc.

Politicians and advocates know that complacency is never an option. Restructuring, refining and reorganizing outreach programs and campaigns is an ongoing process. Refusing to rest on their laurels is an NGP VAN attribute as well. In 2017 NGP VAN collaborated with the DNC to create a campaign tool that became “Knock.” The downloadable app, designed to take some of the headache out of turf-cutting, allowed users to login and find the nearest ten voters, using a pre-allocated population.

Since its initial incarnation, Knock has evolved into “Distributed Canvassing,” now in a Beta pilot program. Distributed Canvassing streamlines the process from office to field by eliminating a number of time-consuming steps. Users can assign the parameters of a specific voter population, or universe, devise a script and then decide upon the number of contacts each field worker should make. Distributed Canvassing attaches numerals to lists that it creates. The field organizer provides workers with their list numeral. Based on where a canvas worker is stationed, the app cuts the turf.

Distributed Canvassing’s flexible universe parameters have enabled app-users to handle statewide and town-specific campaigns equally well. Larger and smaller teams have made use of the app, as have dedicated single users. While assuming the role of turf-cutter is a huge part of what makes Distributed Canvassing a new ace in the sleeve of campaigners and fund-raisers, it also assists with data entry and eliminates a lot of superfluous training.

Sean Penn: Critical Review of the Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff

Sean Penn has written his first novel, entitled “, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff.” The book revolves around Bob, who shares the same character as Sean Penn. Critics, like Trevor Noah have panned Bob Honey Who Just Do stuff, the book with the weird title, and they are stating that the story is a little bit trippy, and people are enjoying how the novel would put them in disbelief, amazement, and delight. The novel is also recommended for those people who prefer reading cult classics, and according to Sean Penn, they will love the story behind Bob Honey. The satirical madness embedded in each page of the novel can be observed in detail to find out the truth that the writer wanted to tell the people. It requires a deep sense of understanding to unravel the secrets behind each page of the novel.

Initially being released as an audiobook back in 2016, Sean Penn had the chance to publish his novel as a slimmer. The novel includes symbolism for the presidency of Donald Trump, and it is set shortly, where the society falls behind a dystopian, chaotic environment. The novel tackles about the situation near the Republican National Convention, and how the protagonist named Bob faces all of the challenges he encounters every single day. The novel also introduces Fletcher, who is a character based on Mexican drug lord El Chapo. Sean Penn even had to travel to Mexico to interview El Chapo, in preparation for the novel that he will be writing.

People who have already read the novel by Sean Penn pointed out several pages which are written to discredit President Donald Trump. Bob Honey Who Just do Stuff seems to cross multiple genres, resulting in mixed reviews from literary establishments.  Sean Penn is a known critic of the president, and he included several passages in the novel which criticizes the actions of the president, albeit referring to him only through symbolism because the president in the novel is a different person. Sean Penn is hoping that people would be purchasing and supporting his novel, and he is also asking for the assistance from his friends at Hollywood to promote the book that he has written. Sean Penn stated that he still thinks whether to write another novel that would continue the story of Bob.
