End Citizens United Protects Johnson’s Amendment From Conservative Attacks

The many different amendments to U.S. law can often be controversial but one has remained in place since 1954 when Senator and future President Lyndon Johnson introduced his own amendment banning charitable groups from providing financial support to political candidates and parties. Becoming known as Johnson’s Amendment, the law gives the Internal Revenue Service the power to remove the tax-exempt status of Churches, charities, and universities if they are shown to flaunted this campaign financing rule; End Citizens United reveals the law passed largely without opposition to its first reading in Congress and has remained on the law books ever since.

In recent years, as the power of the evangelical right has grown the Johnson Amendment has begun to be questioned by conservative politicians who would benefit from relaxing the rules on campaign contributions made to their political activities. End Citizens United has been following the latest attempts to repeal the power of Johnson’s Amendment with great interest as a whole host of stealth attacks have been made on the law by conservative lawmakers hoping to add clauses to legislation bringing an end to this effective finance rule.

President Johnson was a Senator when he feared the murky world of political donations could be affected in a negative way by charitable and church groups allowing a large number of tax-exemptions to be claimed on a single donation. Johnson included Churches, charities, and universities in the Amendment which took the power to fund political election campaigns out of the hands of charitable groups and instead maintained the grassroots nature of the election financing rules then in place.

End Citizens United is fighting to raise awareness of the changing nature of campaign financing rules which have been attacked by Republican lawmakers and the President of the United States over the course of 2017. President Trump has already signed an Executive Order calling for the IRS to ignore tax-exempt Church groups flouting Johnson’s Amendment and not remove their tax-exempt status as Johnson’s Amendment calls for. A partial repeal of Johnson’s Amendment has also been included as a clause in the recently introduced tax reform bill of 2017 which would exempt charitable Church groups from the rules of the exemption. End Citizens United believes the fact these changes have been introduced using stealth tactics highlights the way public opinion would not support an outright vote on repealing the amendment.

The End Citizens United group has been extremely active on various social media platforms including Facebook where the groups show is patriotism with themes and photos featuring the American flag. Videos produced by End Citizens United also show the united front of people of all ages working together to show their support for the cause of overturning the 2010 Supreme Court decision known as Citizens United.

End Citizens United: Why They Want to Protect the Johnson Amendment

End Citizens United recently released a statement, urging all of their supporters to stop the United States government from totally removing the Johnson Amendment from the constitution. The American political group was created in 2015, and since then, they have participated in a number of demonstrations against the United States government and its policies that damages the American society. The group’s main objectives are to restore the transparency and the legitimacy of the United States presidential elections, and to counter their rival group – Citizens United. End Citizens United is claiming that their rival group is the root cause of all the problems and corruption issues that is plaguing the United States today. They are referring to the controversial ruling by the United States Supreme Court in 2010 which allowed private corporations and businesses to support their favorite candidates with unlimited amounts of money, donating anonymously. According to End Citizens United, this gave wealthy families the power to influence the result of the elections. They wanted the United States Supreme Court to reverse its previous ruling to decrease the power of the few wealthy families who they believe are now controlling the nation.

This time, End Citizens United is also battling the Trump Administration’s policy of removing the Johnson Amendment from the constitution. According to them, the Johnson Amendment was authored by former president Lyndon Johnson which prevents organizations that are exempted to pay taxes, like the church, to support or oppose specific electoral candidates. Removing the Johnson Amendment will turn churches into store houses with billions of dollars in cash. They also warned that the politicians will use the tax exempt status of the church to transfer money without paying any taxes, and they will force their supporters to donate to the church and be given tax exemptions. These donations will never be used for the benefit of the church, but for the benefit of the politicians.

End Citizens United is warning the United States government to leave the amendment alone. They are currently conducting protests to oppose the decision of the Republican Party to erase the amendment completely. End Citizens United stated that they have the money and the power to conduct massive protests if the government continued with their plans. Recently, End Citizens United managed to collect more than $4 million from their members and supporters. Experts agree that the group could raise up to $32 million from their supporters alone, and this amount of money is enough to conduct nationwide protests for their causes to be heard. End Citizens United stated that the money they collected will be used to support politicians who will run for the 2018 National Elections who shares the same sentiments with them. They are hoping that these politicians would win so that the change they wanted can be implemented. Know more:

A Lawyer Standing For The Basic Rights And The Success Of End Citizens United

James Bopp, a very different looking lawyer with white hair, linked with Terre Haute, Indianan. And he is fighting for a man named Citizens United, so that his movie named ‘Hillary: The Movie” can be launched in theaters and TV, for that James is going to appear in front of panel based on five lawyers, convincing them that every human has a right to depict their thoughts, through whatever way they want and this movie should not be banned and allowed to be released in theaters so that public can know the view and can be the judge themselves. This movie should be aired on TV during Democratic Presidential Primaries, and this movie is produced and directed by Citizens United. This movie depicts the character of Hillary Clinton that she is a “European socialist” as well as a complete ruthless politician and influential human being, who handles her personal life completely differently.

But Federal Commission was not in favor to air that show and did not air that show on tv, and in cinemas even, during the primary season, this film was based on 90 minutes, not showing the name who has paid for this campaign. But James Bopp did not agree to anything like that, he continuously argued that this movie is a simple biography of known people like other biographies, and it should not be banned because it isn’t bringing any harm in the society, it’s just for the awareness purposes. Hence their producers and directors should be given First Amendment protections.

This case was refused by Royce Kamberth. But after two years, this case took a turn and Supreme Court reversed the ruling. Many of the views and argues are considered right, and all the counter statements given by James were approved. Hence the director’s First amendment rights were protected. This way the directors are given, the first amendment rights, as the same rights are given to every voter, to stand for their point of view and have liberal speech according to In this way, they can spend their money and support whatever candidate they want too and will come under the Constitution.

In certain case, it’s tough to show how much government is influencing in such cases and making it difficult for the lawyers, and taking the law into their hands by not permitting such advertisements to be aired on tv. It was even argued in Supreme court that this kind of campaign finance and advertisements can be illegal and can bring harm to the environment.

Political Activist George Soros Believes The World Needs A Global Society

The list of organizations that hedge fund manager George Soros supports through financial donations is longer than most people realize. Soros, the 86-year-old, Hungarian refugee and freedom fighter, has his hands and his money in organizations fighting to eliminate the death penalty as well as organizations that want to legalize drugs on Fighting a war on drugs is insanity, according to Soros. He wants to establish a controlled distribution network through which even the most dangerous drugs are legally available. Soros told the United Nations the war on drugs is causing more problems than the drugs are causing. George Soros also supports organizations that believe euthanasia for the terminally ill is the only humane way to end the lives of people suffering from a devastating illness.

The Soros Open Society Foundation gives billions of dollars to other organizations as well. The amount of money Soros gave away over the last 20 years is in the billions, and he’s not done giving. George wants a global society where freedom is a right, not an earned right. He wants his concept of an open society to spread to every nation, and he has some high-power supporters that want the same thing. Hillary Clinton’s open society campaign on remarks came from the Soros playbook. Clinton and Soros want the same things although the Clinton Foundation doesn’t go to the lengths that the Soros Foundation does when it comes to promoting that principle.

Some people wonder why a man who is worth more than $13 billion, and a man who manages a family hedge fund that has $25 billion in assets under management should care about drug reform, the death penalty, and other social causes. The answer is simple. George Soros believes humans care about each other. The lack of caring demonstrated by some countries is the work of governments that take advantage of human rights in order to become powerful and wealthy. But, according to Soros, those governments are destined to fail, and he wants to hasten that process. The list of social reforms that Soros believes will change the world include a better understanding of the plight of refugees. And a better understanding of life itself. George may be an atheist, but he does have a sense of unity that is part of the entity that humans call “a higher power.”

According to an article published by, George Soros is a man with deep convictions. He has enough money and power to make those convictions a reality. He knows the world is a fragile place, and he is doing something about it through his charitable organizations on Snopes. Soros is one-of-a-kind, and he knows it. That’s why he likes to solve unsolvable problems.
