End Citizens United and Conor Lamb Generate Buzz in PA Special Election

     We are living in what can almost be considered unparalleled times. The political climate in the United States is something that the world has not seen in the modern era and there is concern that things will get worse unless a progressive turnout during the 2018 election cycle makes an impact. Right now there is renewed optimism and hope directed toward the March 13th special election being held in Pennsylvania between Democrat Conor Lamb and Republican Rick Saccone. While this is a traditionally red seat, there has been reason for progressives to be optimistic and Lamb is starting to look like a real challenge for the position. One of the big reasons for Lamb’s ascent of late has been an endorsement from a huge progressive movement known as End Citizens United.

End Citizens United is being run by Tiffany Muller and their primary goal is to bring out the progressive vote in order to try and coerce a change in the most important legislative positions in the American government. The name ‘End Citizens United’ refers to the 2010 Supreme Court case revolving around a conservative propaganda group named Citizens United. The conservative Citizens United decision essentially opened the floodgates for dark money and lobbyists to come flooding into Washington D.C. Muller and her team wants legislators in place that are going to be willing to fight for legislative change in order to overturn this consequential amendment.

Conor Lamb has already espoused enough belief in campaign finance reform that he has won the endorsement of Muller and her team. This endorsement will allow Lamb to take full advantage of End Citizens United’s epic grassroots network, thus helping to get his message out and into the world. Lamb will be going up against the Republic money-making machine and as a result, he’ll need all of the help that he can get. Republicans just a week ago put in over $1.5 million for TV attack ads against Lamb, showing that even they are starting to fear what the moderate progressive candidate can bring to the table.

Lamb himself has been able to generate a lot of buzz of his own accord. Lamb is about as close to a moderate as you are going to find in this political climate and he has espoused his belief in bipartisan work in Washington. Lamb has massive outreach to labor unions and rural Pennsylvania and his attachment to End Citizens United will only help that even more.

The special election in #PA18 is shaping up to be a showdown between the grassroots and corporate special interests. Proud to support Conor Lamb!

Daniel Taub And The Impressive Legacy He Left As Ambassador

There’s a lot of things to talk about the resignation of Daniel Taub, and in this article, we will try to reminisce some of the glorious, ecstatic and joyful moments that he had while being the ambassador of Israel to the court of St. James in the United Kingdom. Let’s get on with it.

The Meeting With The Queen

It was with the meeting with the queen that Daniel Taub finally realized that he had made it in his role as a political officer. In the report from The JC, it was declared that the meeting with the majesty is one of the many reasons why Daniel Taub is regarded to be one of the most successful people today.

He didn’t waste that opportunity, though. When Daniel Taub met the Queen, he wore his best, with his black shoes shined to the brim, and his morning tail coat ironed to perfection. He was also wearing his Kippah when he met him.

Nothing in his new environment as a resident of the U.K. will change the beliefs and practices that he long has ingrained in his system.

We should also include in this short bio the fact that his roots in Israel have been the instrumental key in making sure that he got the achievement that he received today. Without his Israel roots, he may not have been able to get the right successful path that he enjoys right now.

About Daniel Taub

You should also remember that Daniel Taub received an education from the University College in Oxford as well as University College in London. He also earned a degree at the Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.

Indeed, the work that he does is immensely commensurate with the education that he received. The fact also that he was combat medic in the Israel Defense Forces gives him an extra reputation of being a brave public servant.
