End Citizens United Raising Awareness Over Dangerously Flawed GOP Tax Bill

You don’t have to have a poli-sci major to know that the rich like to be rich and only want to get richer. That is why the GOP has been working day-and-night during an otherwise disastrous year in order to push through a major piece of legislation: the Republican Tax Bill. Of course, the bill is being marketed as the tax cut that middle-America needs, however, the truth is anything but. End Citizens United is a political action committee that has been working for the past several years in order to engineer much-needed campaign finance reform at the highest level of American politics. This new GOP tax bill is so disastrous that ECU has had to chime in to raise awareness.

Tiffany Muller is the President at End Citizens United and she has been the vocal lead in trying to get attention to the flaws that the GOP tax plan has been engineering. Muller had this to say about the plan, “House Republicans took another step towards handing our democracy to their big donors.” Muller’s focus during this press release was to further highlight just how clear it was that the GOP’s newest tax plan was simply a machination in order to move money around toward the elite class of donors that the GOP has paid so much attention to. This is particularly worrying for End Citizens United because it highlights just how dangerous unlimited spending of dark money can be within the world of the United States government.

Republicans have controlled a majority of the United States government since the shocking and appalling election of Donald Trump in November of 2016. Since then, Republicans have largely been stuck with in-fighting and party squabbles. However, it should worry any number of moderates, liberals and regular Americans that the GOP is working so hard to get this tax bill through and into reality. Not only does the tax bill push one step closer to destroying the working class, it also solidifies the fact that the United States government is being sold off by Republicans.

It was made abundantly clear not just by End Citizens United but by the political world at large that this tax bill is a hail mary in order to salvage their high-paying donor class. High ranking Republican donors want to see their money used to influence politics at the highest level and under President Trump’s laughable leadership, that just hasn’t been the case.

End Citizens United was formed in order to fight for campaign finance reform in the federal government. Their mission is to eventually overturn the disastrous 2010 Supreme Court decision which opened up the doors for millionaires and billionaires to buy off legislators in order to push their goals.

How Securus Technologies Ended Up as the Most Innovative Containment Security Company Yet.

Securus Technologies is an American company with a patriotic agenda. It has its headquarters in Dallas, Texas and it dates from way back when it only had a few offices, and when it was operating as a regular commercial public telecommunications enterprise. The company is ever committed to monitoring products and services in order to make the world a safer place. However, that was not always the case. Its initial primary purpose, at its inception and formation, was to simply connect inmates with their family members and friends. However, most criminals seldom reformed and often pursued their vile and aggressive agenda against other prisoners, prison officials and the public outside. They started sneaking contraband communication gadgets into prisons through conniving, corrupt, technologically upfront or violent means. Smuggling even became so high-tech that contraband phones get delivered into prison yards via drones.

The problem of inmates accessing unregulated communication with the outside world created a lasting and damning opportunity for them to coordinate drug trafficking and violent attacks within and outside prisons. Inmates became more dangerous when incarcerated than when free because prisons became a networking avenue for them. Citing such egregious oversight in security and the looming danger that the situation posed to the general security of Americans, Securus Technology started investing in containing criminal communication via contraband phones within cells and detention centers.

The services were since widened to include helping investigators track down criminals, helping in monitoring criminal activities and containing organized criminal communication for the sake of preventing crimes from happening. The company incorporated data reporting features that are instrumental in allowing staff members of correctional facilities and law enforcement officials to conduct investigations. Now, it vastly covers American and Canadian territories in terms of office space and prison market shares. It invests heavily and continuously in developing technology in an effort to make life more secure for Americans and their Canadian neighbors. By the year 2016, the company had invested over 600 dollars in its projects, and it still had plans of investing more just to make sure that the holding facilities it serves got the best out of its technological services. Some of the key services that Securus Technologies provides in terms of inmate illegal communication containment include:

  • Barring all contraband devices within prison facilities from accessing mobile communication networks
  • Providing emergency services to the general public, inmates and law enforcement officers,
  • Helping in incident management via communication monitoring for preventative prediction,
  • Providing the public, through its clientele, with critical cyber crime information,
  • Assisting law enforcement officials in conducting inmate related investigations over organized crime,
  • Servicing and regulating the communication of inmates within its clientele base through its self-service platforms and,
  • Managing data and cyber-security protocols for prisons and other holding facilities.

End Citizens United Champions Campaign Finance Reform in Wake of Republican Tax Bill.

In 1954 we saw Lyndon B Johnson work hand-in-hand with Dwight Eisenhower as Republicans and Democrats collaborated on what would become the Johnson Amendment. The Johnson Amendment was designed in order to prevent 501(C)(3) organizations from participating in political campaign contributions. The goal of the amendment was to simply separate church and state matters while closing a loophole that corporate donors were more than willing to abuse. While the amendment was approved in a bipartisan effort and has stood unchallenged for over 50 years, times are surely changing. The election of Donald Trump has brought on an extreme change in the way that Washington D.C. works — and not for the better. Trump has made it his goal to repeal the Johnson Amendment in order to create more loopholes for his corporate cronies. There are a few organizations that are working to fight back against Trump’s disastrous decision and one of them is End Citizens United.

End Citizens United is a political action committee that rose to prominence as a champion for campaign finance reform. ECU, as the name is often shortened to, has made it their mission to support legislators who are willing to fight for transparent governance as well as real campaign finance reform. The Johnson Amendment falls under this purview and as a result End Citizens United has become a leader in the fight against Trump’s decision. Trump and the GOP are introducing a tax reform bill that would effectively strip the teeth out of the Johnson Amendment, thus creating more opportunities for dark money to flood into the political world.

Religious institutions have always been barred from directly trying to impact politicians thanks to the Johnson Amendment but that doesn’t mean that they have been completely closed out of the political conversation. Churches and other religious are allowed to engage in non-partisan political drives such as encouraging people to vote, but that is the extent of it so long as they fall under 501(C)(3) status. Tiffany Muller, President of End Citizens United, believes things will change dramatically if the Johnson Amendment is gutted. Muller says that churches will immediately transform into “tools for secret campaign spending“.

If President Trump and establishment republicans are able to strip the Johnson Amendment from the book, expect for more upheaval to occur in Washington D.C. by way of dark money and special interests. Lobbyists will be able to donate as much as they want through churches and as a bonus they’ll even get to write it all off on their taxes! End Citizens United knows how dangerous this can be to democracy and as such have made it their mission to make as many people aware as possible.

End Citizens United Fights Washington’s GOP Establishment over Johnson Amendment.


The Johnson Amendment was brought to the table back in 1954 by two esteemed leaders of both major parties, Dwight Eisenhower (R) and Lyndon B Johnson (D). The Johnson Amendment was an expansion of the concept that the church and state should be separated at the highest levels of the United States government. Receiving bipartisan support, there was never any reason to expect the Johnson Amendment to ever come under fire. That was, unfortunately, until Donald Trump became President of the United States. Now, desperate to throw a bone to his far right constituency, the Johnson Amendment fights itself at the center of a raucous discussion and a group named End Citizens United might be charged with saving it.

End Citizens United has been a champion for the average American over the past several years. The goal of ECU has been to fight against the influx of dark money, corporate cronies, and amoral lobbyists that flood into Washington every single day trying to purchase their own politicians with bribes and donations. End Citizens United was first introduced in order to help fight back against the awful Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court back in 2010, but PAC President Tiffany Muller has been more than willing to expand their scope in order to take on whatever new challenge is required within the realm of illicit financing.

End Citizens United’s President Tiffany Muller knows that House Republicans are setting sights on the Johnson Amendment because it will help them get even more dark money donations from the tax-exempt religious sector that has, until now, been barred from participating. Muller says, “The House Republican’s tax plan includes the terrible decision to repeal the Johnson Amendment, which can turn churches into tools for secret campaign spending.” A Pew Research poll on the matter found that an overwhelming majority of voters were ‘uncomfortable’ with the idea of the church having a large and broad say in the political matters that the United States government is charged with handling.

Still, despite the best interest of the majority we have seen President Trump let loose on an almost hard to fathom campaign to discredit and destroy one of the moral and legal foundations of our government. Back in May, President Trump signed an executive order that told the IRS to back off persecuting any churches that were found to be breaking the Johnson Amendment law. The IRS is not beholden to Trumps’ executive order, but if his tax plan passes and gets implemented then they will have no choice but to cave to his decision. End Citizens United knows that the United States government cannot survive as a tool for the people if more millionaires get their hands on it and that is why the PAC is fighting so hard to keep the Johnson Amendment alive.

George Soros’ Advocacy for Change within Societies through Philanthropy

George Soros is the man behind the establishment of the Central European University, an institution with the mission of expanding social sciences and making sure that its students are well equipped with expert knowledge. Most importantly, George is passionate about giving back to the society and changing lives of the needy people. Over the years, he has channelled funds to the Central European University with the aim of supporting the students and the research on social sciences.He is a very successful man who has invested in various business ventures and investments. Most of his profits are for philanthropic works and he is the major donor for Open Society Foundations. Recently, he donated over $32 billion dollars towards fuelling the quest for justice and correction of societal ills. The organization spared some of this money as scholarships to various students to enable them to achieve their dreams.

George Soros struggled his way to becoming a successful businessman . He worked with the railway’s authorities and even in nightclubs for him to pay his college fees while he was studying at London School of Economics. This alone gives him every reason to raise an eyebrow for every child in need of education but not lucky enough to afford school fees. Interestingly, he has supported many people in the society and organizes forums to help them shun away from their inappropriate ways of making a living. This group of people included sex workers and even people dealing in drugs. Moreover, he is the founder of this Open Society Foundation that has changed to lives of many people living in the society. George is of Jewish origin and his experience as a teenager is masked in war and suffering.

However, his contributions to societies and organizations fighting for freedom and human rights is living proof that he is an advocate for change and justice. This has been achieved through Open Society Foundations, a collaboration of various organizations worldwide.To add, his notable contribution to correcting societal injustices and promoting charity is recognized South Africa, the United States of America, Asian countries and many other countries within Africa. He has also supported private organizations that fight for justice and they include the European Council on Foreign Relations, Global Witness, and many others. His organization, Open Society Foundations is also involved in empowering and supporting political leaders all over the world.

Since the establishment of George Soros’ organization, he has contributed chiefly through donation and other types of support to the organizations under his umbrella. The political governments of different nations have straightened up and improved in their governance because of this man. Hillary Clinton was one of the beneficiaries whom he funded their campaigns alongside other Democratic Party aspirants during that time.Due to old age, George Soros believes that Patrick Gaspard who is the Deputy President of the Open Societies Foundations will take over as the organization’s chief executive officer and president. With him in leadership, George is positive that his organization will continue to serve and become the ambassador of change that it has always been for more than 30 years now.

What Did Goettl Air Conditioning Do In Las Vegas This Last Year

Las Vegas doesn’t get cold too much, but when it does it can be pretty tough for those who can’t afford to heat their homes. That was a dilemma facing the Stephenson family who were going through some very difficult financial times this last year, and Mrs. Stephenson even said the children had been sleeping in the main living room of the home because their rooms were just too cold for them. But someone told one of the area’s top HVAC companies, Goettl Air Conditioning about the Stephenson’s needs, and they came to the home and gave them a gift of a new zone-controlled heating system. Goettl said they were very happy to help the Stephensons because they said it was what their company was about, and it seemed like the right thing to do.

Goettl Air Conditioning not only heats homes in the short winter months, indeed, they keep homes cool when the heat of Arizona, California and Nevada strikes at its worst. Goettl specializes in many air conditioner types from central air systems to heat pumps and ductless mini-split systems. They have mastered the design and structuring of air conditioning systems based on home size, air conditioner rating and being environmentally-friendly. Their service trucks visit homes around the clock, and many customers have reviewed Goettl highly for their speed and efficiency.

Goettl Air Conditioning originated around 1926 when Adam and Gust Goettl were looking to establish a new business venture due to the Great Depression hitting hard. After relocating from the Midwest to Arizona, they officially started their family-owned company in 1939. The main Goettl Air Conditioning company is now owned by Ken Goodrich, but there are still members of the Goettl family who run its subsidiary, Goettl’s High Desert Mechanical company. Goettl is also affiliated with Air Conditioning Contractors of America. Follow Goettl on Twitter.

Igor Cornelsen, Retired Banker, Current Brazilian Market Analyst – Four Tips Straight From His Mouth

Making a profit through investing in financial markets isn’t necessarily difficult, given one has been exposed to the country’s market they’re investing in for some time. For example, Americans have an advantage over other nationalities when it comes to investing in the United States. Read morE: Igor Cornelsen fala sobre os bancos brasileiros e o que fazer antes de investor

 

Those who haven’t lived in Brazil, done business in the Portuguese-speaking nation, or otherwise kept up with news in the South American country shouldn’t bother investing if expecting to turn a profit worth the time involved to generate such returns.

Igor Cornelsen has many decades’ worth of experience in Brazil’s financial markets. Although he’s retired from the business and no longer is involved with trading securities for large organizations like he used to for several decades, Mr. Cornelsen does provide the world with tips for investing in Brazil’s markets.

Here are four tips sourced directly from Igor Cornelsen for making the right moves when it comes to investing in Brazil’s tough markets.

A finance minister that knows finance could spur growth

Guido Mantega and Joaquim Levy, the two most recent finance ministers in Brazil, didn’t do anything positive for Brazil’s markets – they simply held it stagnant or failed to do anything positive.

If a new finance minister shows his face in Brazil – one that actually has experience in fiscal policy and financial markets – it’s possible that markets could shoot upwards as a result.

China has a lot to do with Brazil

Brazil’s largest trading partner is China, ranging from individuals with portfolios of high value to some of the largest entities throughout the world’s most-populated country. If China does well in virtually anything, so will Brazil.

Brazil’s real isn’t really good

The real, Brazil’s sole currency, isn’t worth its asking price. Stay far, far away from currency swaps, buying and holding the real, or anything else associated with the fiat.

Trust the truest banks

There are nine or ten tried-and-true banks in Brazil. Investors hoping to stash their assets in Brazil should never trust small banks, even if they offer great deals to new account holders.

5 AM Ventures – The Amazing Contributions of Dr. Scott M. Rocklage

Dr. Scott Rocklage is truly a one-of-a-kind individual. He is probably one of the most talented individuals that you have never heard of. He started out his illustrious career with receiving a B.S. in Chemistry from the University of California at Berkeley and later received his PhD in Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. One of the defining goals of Dr. Rocklage’s life has always been to help people through the use of drug development. Of course, he has taken a specific approach to accomplishing this goal. Consider the following:

 

Dr. Rocklage realizes that you must surround yourself with the right people to plant the seeds of success later on.

 

One of the most important guiding principles of Dr. Rocklage’s life would be getting in the right relationships. As one example, Dr. Rocklage did research in the laboratory of Richard R. Schrock, who won the 2005 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

 

Dr. Rocklage is one determined individual.

 

One of the things Dr. Rocklage realizes is that bringing a drug to market is a lengthy process. It can be an extremely frustrating process, and whole career can be spent on just bringing a couple drugs to market. However, Dr. Rocklage is dedicated to this process because he realizes that many lives can be saved with even one important drug getting to the right individuals (https://www.bloomberg.com/research/stocks/private/person.asp?personId=216045&privcapId=3200727). It is truly much like that commercial that talks about all of the sleepless nights, frustration and rejections from the FDA but when the drug is finally approved it saves the life of the speaker. Rocklage believes wholeheartedly in the process.

 

Dr. Rocklage has brought three such drugs to the market.

 

Finally, Dr. Rocklage has been instrumental in bringing three drugs to the market, including Omniscan, Teslascan and Cubicin. Omniscan helps individuals with brain disorders have more effective MRI results. Teslascan has been instrumental in helping with MRIs of the liver, and Cubicin assists with treatment of certain infections.

 

There is no question more dedicated medical researchers such as Dr. Scott Rocklage are needed. As he continues to work on introducing new drugs, one can only hope that his strong mentorship abilities will produce a new generation of drug researchers that are every bit as dedicated as he has always been.

 

Cameron Clokie Makes A Significant Step In Regenerative Medicine In Canada

Cameron Clokie is a surgeon, scientist and a shrewd entrepreneur. He has made massive contribution in the sector of oral and maxillofacial surgery. One of his successful stories is a 60-year old patient, Peter Russel, who has regrown 7 cm of bone on his lower right jaw.

In Canada, Peter is one of the eight patients who have successfully undergone bone regeneration surgery. Learn more about Cameron Clokie: https://www.dentevents.com/speaker-profile/dr-cameron–clokie/c12024915

Cameron Clokie is the brain behind a technique used to reset the skeletal clock of the jaw; “coaxing bones to grow like they do in a newborn.” He uses a protein that can trigger adult stem cells into becoming bone tissue. Tissue regeneration procedures are performed at Toronto General Hospital and Mount Sinai Hospital.

Presently, bone reconstructive surgery involves a painful procedure of picking bone, fat or muscle from one part of the body to fill other gaps. Another patient, Janine McFarlane, underwent the painful procedure to replace a 12 cm jaw tissue that she lost to benign tumor.

McFarlane did not qualify for the new method since her tumor had also infected the joint. This situation forced the surgeons to use a born carved from her chin to replace her jaw tissue.

The 20-year-old patient was taken in for another surgery using a bone from her hip to reconstruct her mandibles to enable implantation of false teeth. For Russel, Cameron carved a gel model in the shape of the missing jaw piece then filled in the gap. After five days, the gel began to dissolve when blood vessels started growing over the structure.

About Cameron Clokie

Cameron Clokie is a professor of oral maxillofacial surgery at the University of Toronto. He is also the CEO of Induce Biologics Inc., a company that seeks to deliver innovative solutions for musculoskeletal reconstruction through regenerative medicine.

He is an alumnus of McGill University where he earned his DDS in 1985 and a PhD in bone regeneration related to interface development of dental implants. Read more: Toronto Dentist Cameron Clokie Talks Up New Technology Available to Oral Surgeons

Clokie, who is experienced in the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery, has authored many publications. In addition, Cameron Clokie has delivered lectures on regenerative medicine locally and internationally. Notably, Clokie holds 25 US and international patents.
