McCutcheon v. FEC






James Madison Center for Free Speech

1 South 6th Street

Terre Haute, IN 47807-3510

www.jamesmadisoncenter.org

PRESS RELEASE

April 2, 2014

Contact: James Bopp, Jr.
 Supreme Court Strikes Limit on Number of Political Contributions
Today, the U.S. Supreme struck down federal “aggregate limits” on how much an individual may spend on otherwise legal contributions in a two-year election cycle to federal candidates, political parties, and political action committees (“PACs”). The case is McCutcheon v. FEC.
For example, though an individual may legally give $5,200 to each candidate in a two year election cycle, the aggregate limit restricts his total contributions to candidates to $48,600. Thus, an individual may give the full legal amount to only nine candidates. 
Also struck down was an aggregate limit of $74,600 to all political parties and PACs, of which no more than $48,600 could go to all PACs and state political parties. In the alternative, all $74,600 could go to the three national political committees of each political party.
The Court found no government interest justifying aggregate limits. No anti-corruption interest justifies them because that interest is already addressed by “base limits,” which restrict how much an individual may give to a particular candidate, political party, or PAC. For example, Congress eliminated the quid-pro-quo corruption risk by limiting an individual’s contribution to a candidate to $2,600 per election.
And there is also no anti-circumvention interest because other provisions of the federal campaign finance law prevents a particular candidate from receiving a contribution in excess of $5,200 from a particular donor. So the aggregate limits serve no constitutionally permissible purpose.
Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee (one of two McCutcheon plaintiffs) comments: “Today’s decision is an important first step toward restoring the voice of candidates and party committees and a vindication for all those who support robust, transparent political discourse. I am pleased that the Court agreed that limits on how many candidates or committees a person may support unconstitutionally burden core First Amendment political activities. When free speech is allowed to flourish, our democracy is stronger.”
James Bopp, Jr., lead attorney for RNC in the case says: “This is a great triumph for the First Amendment. A robust republic requires free speech and association, which means no limits on how many candidates an individual may support with a legal contribution. Congress allows contributions to nine candidates, but not ten. How could giving to candidate number ten cause any corruption if giving to candidates one through nine doesn’t?”
“This is also a great victory for political parties, who have been disadvantaged recently by the rise of super-PACs.  Political parties serve vital purposes, such as tempering polarization, and this is a step in the right direction to re-empower them,” adds Bopp.
Furthermore, says Bopp: “The Court also rejected the FEC’s ‘wild hypotheticals’ about corruption that suggest fanciful scenarios that are otherwise illegal under current federal law. First Amendment rights cannot be suppressed by mere speculation or a vivid imagination.”
James Bopp, Jr. served as counsel of record for Plaintiff/Appellant Republican National Committee and was their lead counsel in the United States Supreme Court. He and his law firm represented all parties, including McCutcheon, in the District Court and in filing the successful appeal to the Supreme Court.  They created the legal analysis on which the Supreme Court based its decision, which was set out in their briefs for the RNC. This case builds on Citizens United v. FEC and FEC v. Wisconsin Right to Life, prior Supreme Court cases the law firm handled, that are central to the Court’s reaffirmation of First Amendment liberty in the political-speech arena.

Zolpidem Miracle





This is not an isolated case.  In Sept. 12, 2006, The Guardian  reported that Louis Viljoen, a South African man in a persistent vegetative(PVS) state since 1994,  woke fully and began talking in 1999 when doctors gave him zolpidem  .  Dr. Wally Nel is quoted in the Guardian as saying, "Something strange and wonderful is happening here and we have to get to the bottom of it."  Since Louis, Dr. Nel told the Guardian he has treated more than 150 brain damaged patients with zolpidem and has seen improvements in 60% of them.

Cruz on Obama Nominee: Those Who Advocate For Cop Killers Aren't Suited For Leadership at DOJ - Katie Pavlich

Speaking on the Senate floor Tuesday afternoon, Texas Senator Ted Cruz expressed his strong opposition to President Obama's nominee, Debo Adegbile, to head the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice. During his time in leadership at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund [LDF], Adegbile volunteered to advocate for convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, who murdered Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981. In 2011, LDF attorneys were successful in getting Abu-Jamal's death sentence overturned.
"Mr. President, this is insulting to law enforcement officers everywhere," Cruz said

The Inevitability of Obamacare for Illegal Aliens - Michelle Malkin - Page 1

In Oregon this week, officials confessed that nearly 4,000 illegal immigrants had been "accidentally" steered from the state's low-income Medicaid program and instead were enrolled in Obamacare in violation of the law. Oopsie. The Oregonian newspaper's Nick Budnick reported that the health bureaucrats "discovered the problem several weeks ago and are correcting it." Get in line. The beleaguered Cover Oregon health insurance exchange has been riddled with ongoing problems, errors and glitches since last October that have yet to be fixed. Take note: This wasn't a one-time computer meltdown. Because Oregon's health insurance exchange website has been offline and its software architects under investigation for possible fraud, the Oregon Obamacare drones have been processing each and every application manually."  Visit:

Michele Bachmann: Join the Movement to Demand Obama's Impeachment

 "Grassroots activists, lawmakers, journalists, and other prominent media figures are now calling for Barack Obama to be removed from office as he is openly bent on taking it upon himself to write, change, or ignore laws — completely bypassing the legislative branch, and, as such, completely abusing his power. He even brags about it, proudly proclaiming “I can do whatever I want” for goodness’ sake. Michele Bachmann, a former presidential candidate and Tea Party favorite, says that Obama’s disregard for the Constitution is setting dangerous precedents which will eventually lead to the “establishment of lawlessness in the United States.”"  Visit:

Midterms: Chris Matthews sees Dems losing as many as 10 seats in the Senate

Unfortunately, it looks like reality is starting to seep through the cracks in the MSNBC host’s shaky foundation.  Yesterday, Matthews appeared on Meet The Press, and he was very worried about the 2014 midterms.  For him, achieving “the best case scenario” would mean losing “only” five Senate seats.  He calls that possibility “rosy,” and laments the fact that it’s easy to see Dems losing as many as ten."  Midterms: Chris Matthews sees Dems losing as many as 10 seats in the Senate:   I'm not buying it.  This is probably just an attempt to motivate the base.

Judgement Day

"Judgment Day by Congressman Henry Hyde

When the time comes, as it surely will, when we face that awesome moment, the Final Judgment, I’ve often thought, as Bishop Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of loneliness. You have no advocates. You are there standing alone before God, and the terror will grip your soul like nothing you can imagine.

But I really think that those in the pro-life movement will not be alone. I think there will be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world, but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world. They will plead for everyone who has ever been in this movement. They will say to God, “Spare him because he loved us.” And God will look at you and not say, “Did you succeed?” Rather, He will say, “Did you try?”"

Articles: Jahi McMath is Alive

 "Jahi's mother sought to have her daughter evaluated and cared for in an institution other than CHMC (Children's Hospital Medical Center Oakland,California), where the events leading to her daughter's "brain death" occurred.  A confounding factor is that by California law, the financial damages in the case of death of a child are limited to $250,000, whereas lifetime care of a brain-injured child runs into the millions.  Another California girl, Rebecca Jimenez, had severe neurological damage after similar surgery in 2011 and received a multi-million dollar settlement from CHMC. "  Visit:  Articles: Jahi McMath is Alive:



Could the hospital's hasty pronouncement of 'brain death" in Jahi's case be for the hospital's financial benefit?

Federal Court Enjoins Montana Law Requiring Complete Disclosure of Candidate's Voting Record

Federal Court Enjoins Montana Law Requiring Complete Disclosure of Candidate's Voting Record
 
Tuesday, a federal court permanently enjoined a Montana law requiring those that published campaign materials about a legislator's record to include every vote that legislator has made on that issue.
A challenge to the law was brought by Mr. Matthew Monforton, a candidate for Montana House District 69, who is running in the 2014 Republican primary against encumbent Ted Washburn. As part of his campaign, Mr. Monforton intends to expose Rep. Washburn's flipflopping voting record on Obamacare on a billboard and by letter to constituents.
Under the law, for Mr. Monforton to publish materials about Rep. Washburn's record, he must include a complete list of all of Rep. Washburn's votes "on the same issue." "Rep. Washburn has been all over the map when it comes to Obamacare votes," says Monforton."There's not enough room on the billboard and my letter would have to be several pages long to detail all of Washburn's flipflopping." The suit was brought against Commissioner of Political Practices Jonathan Motl, Attorney General Tim Fox, and two county attorneys that can enforce the law. They all conceded in court filings that the law was unconstitutional and that they should be enjoined from enforcing it.
James Bopp, Jr., the attorney for Mr. Monforton, stated "The court was right to strike down the law as unconstitutional and enjoin its enforcement. Not only is the law unclear about what it requires, it requires a speaker to engage in political speech only in a certain way and with considerable effort, undermining the speaker's ability to say what he wants, how he wants, and when he wants." "An injunction was necessary," he continues, "because nothing prevents the State from changing its mind. Commissioner Motl or his successors can change the Commission's position on the validity and interpretation of the law at anytime, as we've seen in the recent Welch advisory opinion issued by the office."
The case is Monforton v. Motl, 6:14-cv-00002. The Complaint can be found athttp://www.jamesmadisoncenter.org/cases/files/monforton-motl/complaint.pdf, and the Permanent Injunction Order is available athttp://www.jamesmadisoncenter.org/cases/files/monforton-motl/court-order-opinion.pdf.

Life Issues Institute - When a mother's life hangs in the balance

When a mother’s life hangs in the balance
There’s one exception that many are willing to make for abortion—when the mother’s life is at risk. But still, it’s a controversial subject.

What’s it like to live through such a situation? A mother’s love for her child is a unique, sacred and sacrificial love. I can’t imagine how it feels when circumstances threaten that bond. Yet against all odds, some mothers have placed the value of the life of their unborn baby above even their own." Visit:

Montana House Candidate Challenges Law Requiring Complete Disclosure of Opponent's Flipflopping Voting Record

 On Wednesday, Montana legislative candidate Matthew Monforton asked a federal court to temporarily enjoin a state law requiring those that published campaign materials about a legislator's record to include every vote that legislator has made on that issue.

 Mr. Monforton, a candidate for Montana House District 69, is running in the 2014 Republican primary against encumbent Ted Washburn.  As part of his campaign, Mr. Monforton intends to expose Rep. Washburn's flipflopping voting record on Obamacare on a billboard and by letter to constituents.

 Under Montana law, for Mr. Monforton to publish materials about Rep. Washburn's
record, he must include a complete list of all of Rep. Washburn's votes "on the same issue."
"Rep. Washburn has been all over the map when it comes to Obamacare votes," says Monforton.
"There's not enough room on the billboard and my letter would have to be several
pages long to detail all of Washburn's flipflopping." He adds, "I should have the freedom to criticize Washburn's support of Obamacare without him using the government to penalize that criticism like he's done to other conservatives." Rep. Washburn filed a complaint with Montana's Commissioner of Political Practices against Ron Murray, who challenged Washburn in 2010, and Terry Bannon, a local Tea Party member. Commissioner Jonathan Motl recently reopened that complaint and is now investigating it.

 James Bopp, Jr., the attorney for Mr. Monforton, stated "there are the numerous First Amendment problems with the law. Not only is the law unclear about what it requires, it requires a speaker to engage in political speech only in a certain way and with considerable effort, undermining the speaker's ability to say what he wants, how he wants, when he wants."  "Voters can easily find a legislator's complete voting record online," he continues, "There is no justification for a law like this.  All it does is discourage robust political discussion and chill protected political speech. It is unconstitutional."

 The case is Monforton v. Motl, 6:14-cv-00002. The Complaint can be found athttp://www.jamesmadisoncenter.org/cases/files/monforton-motl/complaint.pdf, and the Preliminary Injunction Memorandum is available athttp://www.jamesmadisoncenter.org/cases/files/monforton-motl/preliminary-injunction.pdf.
