I am pleased to announce that Friday the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled in favor of CEI in our case against the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to ensure the “expeditious issuance” of its final rule regarding airport body scanners.
Today’s ruling brings an end to the lawlessness that has plagued the agency’s approach to body scanners for more than four years since the court ordered the TSA to conduct this rulemaking. Thank you once again for your support –your contributions to CEI help make victories like this possible.
Marc Scribner, a petitioner in the case and a research fellow at CEI, said, “Today’s victory will rein in TSA’s illegal body scanner policy. We are pleased the court agreed with our petition that TSA has taken far too long to comply with the basic rulemaking process that all agencies must follow. We look forward to examining the final rule to see how the TSA considered the thousands of public comments on how, why, and where the TSA can use body scanners.”
CEI filed suit on July 15, 2015, against the TSA for violating the law by deploying ineffective and intrusive body scanners before completing the required rulemaking process that incorporates public and expert advice. With a more complete and transparent process, the TSA could improve passenger safety while better protecting personal privacy. CEI was joined as co-petitioners by the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) and the Rutherford Institute, as well as CEI employees Marc Scribner and Lawson Bader in their capacity as private individuals.

Thank you again for your support. If you have any questions or comments about the case, please feel free to email me.

|Dr. Ben Carson.|
Governor Bobby Jindal.
Former Senator Rick Santorum.
These presidential candidates have already confirmed for the Rising Tide Summit in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. And Bruce, this is your chance to see them live, in person, and completely unfiltered. This is your chance to hear their vision for America.
Bruce, we need a president who is a true conservative. One who cares about the passions and concerns of conservatives from across the country. And this is your chance to see them up close and personal.
We’ve teamed up with Congressman Rod Blum to put on this event because we know it’s important for you to hear from each of these candidates. It’s our duty as citizens to vet each and every candidate. We can’t count on talking heads or the mainstream media do it. And we certainly can’t trust the liberal media’s debates. We need to do it ourselves. And, that’s why it’s crucial that you come to the Rising Tide Summit to hear them yourself.
Bruce, when the history of this election is written, what will it read? Will it say that the conservative grassroots stayed at home and allowed the media to pick our next president? Or will it say that conservatives did their homework on each of these presidential hopefuls, and picked the one who truly represents the values that they share? That’s why it’s crucial that you get your ticket today to be part of this historic event.
On December 5th, you will see which candidate knows how to get freedom working in this country again.

, in a closed door meeting, the House Republicans will pick their nominee for Speaker of the House. We all know that John Boehner is pushing hard for Kevin McCarthy. He wants another big government speaker. He wants someone who will continue to attack conservatives. Basically he wants to give Obama another lapdog. He’s big on McCarthy because McCarthy will pick up where he left off. A vote for McCarthy is a vote for another Boehner speakership. Bruce, we can’t let Boehner have the last laugh. We can't let Boehner win! That's why you've got to contact your representative today, and tell them don’t vote for Kevin McCarthy.
Bruce, a McCarthy speakership means more blundered budgets, more blundered bills, and another blundered speakership. We can’t trade one Boehner for another. We can’t afford it. America cannot afford a McCarthy speakership. And if you agree, contact your congressman today, and tell them don’t vote for Kevin McCarthy.
Let’s show Kevin McCarthy how freedom works.

|We did it!|
We’ve forced Boehner to resign as Speaker of the House!
This is absolutely incredible! And I want to thank each and every single member of the FreedomWorksgrassroots community. We couldn’t have done it without your help, and I want to make sure YOU know what you did to oust Boehner.
Now let’s get freedom working in the House again.

With the 2016 election cycle upon us, and with everyone focused on the presidential election, it’s absolutely imperative that we protect congressional conservatives, and elect the next generation of principled conservatives like Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Ben Sasse. That’s why I wanted to take some time every week and start telling you about some of the most important candidates running in 2016.
Tim Huelskamp is a principled conservative first elected to Congress in 2010. Tim Huelskamp has a lifetime score of 97% with FreedomWorks and a score of 91% with Heritage Action. He’s spent the last four years standing up for what you and I believe in. He’s spent his time in Congress fighting the good fight. Huelskamp has voted to repeal ObamaCare, and fought tooth and nail to end wasteful spending in DC (like the pork filled highway bill). He’s such a principled conservative that earlier this year he stood with conservatives and voted against Boehner.
And he’s already being attacked for it, Boehner’s cronies have recruited a primary challenger in attempt to silence conservatives that stand up for the values you and I believe in. See how you can help Rep. Huelskamp here.
Bruce, Florida doesn’t only matter in the Presidential Election. It will be one of the key Senate battlegrounds of 2016. With Marco Rubio running for president this is an open seat, and the Democrats are going to try and take it from Republicans. Fortunately, Rep. Ron DeSantis is running for the Senate. He’s a true conservative. A veteran who served his country in Iraq, Rep. DeSantis is a true patriot. He’s fought to defend the Constitution abroad and at home.
Over the course of his 3 years in the House, he has earned a 93% lifetime score with FreedomWorks and an 88% with Heritage Action. Rep. DeSantis has fought Obama’s unconstitutional spy program, he’s fought ObamaCare, and he’s done everything in his power to stop Obama’s wasteful spending! If you want to see how you can support Rep. DeSantis, please click here!
Last but not least, I want to tell you about a potential new addition to the House Freedom Caucus. State Senator Jim Banks. Banks is a proven freedom fighter. Indiana’s 3rd Congressional District is an open seat. And it’s absolutely imperative that we elect a principled conservative here. Rep. Banks’ career in the state legislature is epic. In the State legislature, Banks distinguished himself by leading the charge on the issues you and I care about. He fought to repeal the Death Tax, start a school voucher program, and repeal Common Core. And, Bruce, that’s only some of it.
Banks is a Conservative hero in Indiana, and once we get him to Washington, he’ll be a conservative hero there! If you want to help out Jim Banks, you can make an impact right here.
I hope you liked FreedomWorks PAC’s inaugural newsletter. I look forward to sending you updates on these elections and letting you know about candidates that will help us Move America Forward!
