End Citizens United’s Grand Match towards Big Money-Free Politics

Since its founding, End Citizens United has remained steadfast in its quest to rid American politics of big money businesses that have held politicians hostage with huge donations to their political campaigns. The political action committee primarily operating at the grassroots level has intensively campaigned for the overturning of the Citizens United‘s ruling by the Supreme Court in 2010, which allowed big businesses unlimited campaign funding. To achieve its desired goal, End Citizens United has adopted an aggressive fundraising initiative that has seen it garner up to $4 million for the first three months of 2017. These funds will be part of the PAC’s war chest for the upcoming 2018 midterm congressional elections in the United States where it seeks to exert greater influence and shape the future of the U.S politics.


The significant amount of funds raised so far by End Citizens United is part of the over $35 million in campaign funds the organization has projected to raise by the next election cycle. If the organization meets this target, it will be a remarkable improvement considering it raised over $25 million during the last election period in 2016. Even more impressive was the 40,000 first time donors who had contributed during the first quarter. This made up close to 40 percent of the donors so far. The funds will be used primarily to finance the campaigns of politicians with reform-oriented policies. End Citizens United has so far thrown their weight behind candidates such as Senator Sherrod Brown, Jon Ossoff and Senator Jon Tester. These are Democratic Party candidates vying for elective posts in states with Ossoff seeking to fill the vacant Congressional seat in Georgia in a special by-election. Its aggressive approach also includes partnering with over organizations to push through their agenda. Additionally, the organization ensures that no single donor can donate over $5,000.

Trump Tape Provides Material for Late Night Hosts

There can be no question that Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy has been a gold mine for all of the late night talk show hosts. Trump’s wild statements have constantly provided these comedians with an endless source of material. Rarely a day goes by when the late night talk shows do not make a reference to Trump or play a clip of him making a speech. This has proven to be very good for ratings. All of the late night shows also post all of their clips online. The videos containing jokes making fun of Trump always get very large numbers of views.


The biggest bombshell of the Trump campaign came when a video of Trump taken in 2005 showed him making controversial statements about women. Needless to say, this was a dream come true for the late night hosts and all of their writers. They wasted no time writing jokes that ripped Trump for the comments that he made. Most of the shows spent the entire week using the Trump tape as a source for countless bits and monologue jokes.


The beating that Trump has taken at the hands of the late night hosts has led Trump to proclaim that these jokes are all part of a scheme by the media to fix the election. It does not appear that jokes about the 2005 Trump tape are going to be stopping any time soon. The late night shows know a good thing when they see it. The Trump video is a gift that keeps on giving to late night hosts.



Helane Morrison: The Compliance Guru of San Francisco

The compliance bit of corporate transactions is increasingly gaining relevance. Firms avoid contravening regulatory statutes due to the risk of revocation of licenses and fines. Additionally, the presence of multiple regulatory bodies in every industry necessitates the formation of compliance departments.


Helane Morrison has become the mother of compliance issues in the San Francisco area over the current decade. Her expertise in this sector began while she served as an administrator for the Securities and Exchange Commission in San Francisco. She rose up the ranks and eventually became the pioneering female director of the department.


During her tenure, Helane developed a tightly knit compliance infrastructure for the SEC. She oversaw five States in the Northwest including California. Her main areas of operation included regulation and enforcement of securities exchange as well as litigation. She also has a background in Law thus her ability to discharge all these duties.


Helane attended the Berkeley School of Law at California University where she was an active legal affairs writer and editor. Before that, she had managed to graduate with a Degree in Journalism from the Northwestern University. She went on to build her career in law between 1986 and 1996.


Hall Capital, an investment bank in San Francisco has been the focus of Helane’s time since 2007. She assumes the role of a Managing Director in charge of Legal and Compliance issues. She works together with two other women at the helm of the organization and her time there has preceded significant achievement. An article on her professional undertakings can be viewed on Bloomberg journal.


Apparently, Helane Morrison’s extensive knowledge and experience mean that she can easily influence the practice of compliance. She, therefore, shares her experience through writing. Together with her colleagues and practitioners, they have published several journals on compliance. An example of such materials spoke on compliance in marketing and fundraising and was the result of a conference held in 2012.


Helane and other practitioners are now gaining recognition from far and wider and they are beginning to assume bigger managerial roles in business enterprises. In Helane’s case, envious eyes are cast on her illustrious career and now wait to see the next big move she could make in future.

Is Charles Koch Feeling the Bern?

One half of the well-known Koch brothers caused a stir in the political world recently. A published Washington Post article reveals some of Charles Koch’s viewpoints are not so different from Democratic Presidential nominee Bernie Sanders.

Much to the surprise of Bernie Sanders supporters and many others, Charles Koch has gone on to say he shares the sentiment the Presidential hopeful has concerning wealth inequality. The article quoted Koch, indicating the chief executive of Koch Industries, also believes that today’s economy primarily serves to help those already high on the financial food chain. Koch goes on to say that the financial system’s checks and balances only serves to keep a two tiers of living in place, essentially the haves and the have-nots.
There is a stir on Charles Koch’s sentiments on Bernie Sander’s political stance on inequality. But Koch goes on to discuss that there is still quite a bit that he disagrees with concerning Sander’s and his presidential campaign. Koch makes it clear that he will not be contributing funds to the nominee’s campaign. Still, the notion that someone like Charles Koch can agree with Sanders on the idea of economic inequality is still something to take notice.
Charles Koch was born in Witchita Kansas in 1935, a place he still resides. A descendent of Dutch immigrants, Koch attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he received two Masters Degrees in Science. In the early 1960’s Koch worked on the board of Rock Island Oil and Refining Company, later becoming president and renaming the company with his familial last name. To this day Koch Industries has grown exponentially, nearly generating 100 billion dollars in revenue.
While normally the stereotypical boogeyman of many a political stand point, it would seem rare for a big business figure to agree with a grass roots campaign like the Bernie Sanders movement. But such is the case as the influential Charles Koch has agreed with the philosophy Sanders has on income inequality. While Koch disagrees on several other aspects of Sanders standpoints both men share the belief that current economic system is rigged to favor the privileged over others less fortunate.

A Congressman That Is A Lie

It is interesting to note that people will happily put their morals to the side if it fits into their overall purpose. A Republican lawmaker named Scott DesJarlais has made headlines because he is a supporter of antiabortion rights. This representative of Tennessee and he has a lot to say when it comes to abortions, but it turns out that when abortions work in his favor he does seem to agree with them. He has been a very strong opposer of abortion, but new facts indicate that he supported abortion when it came to him and the women in his life.

One of his ex-wife’s reported that she had two abortions which he supported, and apart from his own wife he also had many extramarital affairs. He had an affair with a 24-year-old woman and on a recorded phone call he was heard speaking with her. He was frustrated because she had not gotten an abortion and that is what they had previously agreed-upon.

People like Mikal Watts really should not be surprised when they find out that politicians are misrepresenting their very own morals. That has been true in the case of many politicians in the past, it is true in our day, and it will continue to be the true in the future.

Hillary Clinton to Make it Official on Sunday: She is Running for President

Hillary Clinton, the former Secretary of State for the United States of America, will announce her aim to get the nomination for president by the Democrats in 2016 on Sunday. This would end years of debates around her intention to run for the presidency, according to NPR.

People like Bruce Karatz, who know her campaign strategy state that Clinton, long assumed to be the frontrunner for the Democratic party (even without formal announcements), will possibly announce the news in a social media video or even a tweet. There is a chance it appears on as well. This appears to be an appeal to the younger generations of “digital natives,” for whom the internet and technology are a natural extension of their lives, suggests an anonymous source close to the Clinton campaign.

By announcing the running now, it gives the advantage to Clinton. She lost to Barack Obama back in 2008 and this time around she could have a lot more fundraising in order to get the hundreds of millions in cash that is typically required to spark a promising presidential bid.

After the announcement on Sunday, Clinton is “presumed to be traveling to Iowa – a key state in the caucus game – for planning further campaign events.” Strategists for the Democratic party have mentioned the anonymous nature of the details because Clinton has not yet detailed the plan for her campaign volunteers, according to the Washington Post. Sunday is set to be the “tell-all” day.
