Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation joined forces with other conservative organizations in filing an amicus brief urging the 2nd Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in New York to overturn a U.S. District Court judge’s order imposing a nationwide injunction that prohibits the Trump Administration from dismantling former President Obama’s DACA program – a program allows certain aliens to remain in the United States despite being here illegally  – during the pendency of a lawsuit challenging the termination of the program.

Reuters: Citizens United loses free speech appeal over New York donor rules

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A federal appeals court on Thursday threw out a constitutional challenge by the conservative group Citizens United to New York state’s requirement that registered charities disclose their donors annually.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan rejected claims that the requirement violated the First Amendment because it intimidated donors from contributing, cutting off money needed to conduct free speech, and was a prior restraint on the ability to solicit donations.

Writing for a 3-0 panel, Circuit Judge Rosemary Pooler said New York has important interests in stopping fraud and abuse by charities, and requiring them to disclose names, addresses and contributions of their largest donors makes enforcement easier.

“While we think it plausible that some donors will find it intolerable for law enforcement officials to know where they have made donations, we see no reason to believe that this risk of speech chilling is more than that which comes with any disclosure regulation,” Pooler wrote.

The court also found no reason to believe that New York and its Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, a Democrat, enforced the disclosure requirement “in anything but a uniformly content-neutral fashion.”

Citizens United was also the plaintiff in the landmark 2010 U.S. Supreme Court case allowing unlimited independent spending by corporations and labor unions in election campaigns.

It advocates for limited government, free enterprise and strong families.

Times Daily: Pushing God out of the classroom

Pushing God out of the classroom

According to David Bossi, president of Citizens United Foundation, Common Core is pushing God out of the classroom and replacing him with Muslim teachings about Islam.

Barack Hussein Obama was able to force Common Core on the states by bribing them with billions of dollars to implement the standards. ACLU and other groups that pretend to be concerned about keeping religion out of schools only act when something related to Christianity is mentioned. There’s been no lawsuits against Muslim lessons.

The radical left is using Common Core to drive Christian beliefs and values from the children while introducing them to “positive” qualities of Islamic teaching.

Don’t think that if your children are already grown, or if you don’t have any children, that this is not your concern. The generation that is now being indoctrinated against Christianity and Judaism will one day be the leaders of this nation.

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 & 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.
