End Citizens United Focuses on Ending Dark Money in Politics

The United States political machine has been particularly beholden to special interests, corporate lobbyists, and dark money since the 2010 Supreme Court decision regarding Citizens United. Citizens United is a conservative group that essentially argued for the right to be bribed by big money backers during the election season. The Supreme Court, for no good reason in our mind, heard their argument and opened the doors for dark money in politics. Capital Hill has not been the same ever since. A political action committee aptly named End Citizens United has been working hard ever since in order to try and undo the damage caused by the disastrous decision and now their work seems to be getting new energy and motivation.


End Citizens United was established by Tiffany Muller with the core goal of making their name a reality. Muller wanted to put together a team of people who could invigorate the voting public to start the process of getting a constitutional amendment in place to overturn Citizens United. Obviously this is a huge objective and a long trek so it is going to take prolonged excitement and interest to happen. With the election of Donald Trump to the White House and the increasingly clear connection between his campaign and Russia, people are more motivated and angry than ever. This has turned End Citizens United into one of the more popular grassroots Political action committees around.


Over the first quarter of 2017 the team at End Citizens United saw incredible numbers come pouring into their PAC. Through the first quarter of 2017 the team raised nearly $4 million in total contributions off of 100,000 donations. Of these donations nearly 40,000 people were first time donors. While this is hard to parse for people who don’t pay attention to politics, a big increase in first time donors is a sign that people are becoming increasingly motivated to make change. Muller says that these donors primarily feel, “the system is rigged against them, where those can write the biggest checks get the biggest say.”


When it comes to making change in Washington D.C. you need to have legislators on your side. That is why Muller and End Citizens United have been making the rounds endorsing important political figures who have agreed to fight for ending big money in politics at a legislative level. Most recently End Citizens United decided to stand behind Senator Heinrich of New Mexico.


Senator Heinrich has been one of the leading SIC members during the Russia-Collusion hearings and he has always been a vocal opponent of dark money in politics. End Citizens United’s endorsement of Senator Heinrich will help him big time during the upcoming re-election campaigns in 2018.

Founder of Iconic Beauty Brand Lime Crime Shares Do Deere Shares Her Secrets

The very beautiful and talented Doe Deere shared her morning routine in an interview. In her own words, she described how she woke up at 8:30 am every morning after ensuring that she got at least nine hours of sleep, which she feels is a major factor in keeping her skin clear. Describing herself as a morning person, she always starts her day by drinking a tall glass of water so as to ensure that she stayed hydrated.

She then proceeds to do some stretching exercises, after which she goes ahead and has breakfast that quite often comprises of grits, a kind of cereal, as well as yogurt, fruit and orange juice. One important rule that she follows is to keep her mornings of what she calls digital information-email and stuff, as she wants to focus on creativity rather than routine administrative matters that she can attend to through the day.

While doing her makeup, she likes listening to music, and the Beatles happen to be her current favorites. She uses Glossier face-wash as she loves its smell of roses. Her favorite moisturizer has to be Murad Hydro Dynamic quenching essence. For foundation, she prefers either L’oreal’s True Match Foundation or Mac’s Studio Fix. As a matter of fact, she is planning to introduce her own foundation quite soon.

In any case, the mission of her company Lime Crime is to revolutionize the way is makeup is done, starting from the way that consumers shop for it, and the way that they use it. Already Lime Crime has achieved iconic status in the social media and digital space. The trends set by Lime Crime routinely break the Internet. Of course, quality and standards are always accorded the top priority at Lime Crime.

One of their most spectacularly successful products is undoubtedly the Blue Unicorn lipstick. Lime Crime is popular because it encourages individuals to be fearlessly creative in their fashion choices. Apart from being an iconoclast fashion brand Lime Crime is environmentally friendly too with it having been certified as vegan and cruelty fee by PETA and Leaping Beauty.

Lime Crime seeks to provoke and shake up things and make them very enjoyable. Being staid and boring is not for them. Always the one to take feedback from everyone who will give it to her-employees, customers, and detractors, she sincerely believes that cosmetics are a form of self-expression that is free and carefree, not bound by conventions.

The very name Lime Crime is indicative of this- cosmetics the color of lime that is so bright and expressive that wearing these might be tantamount to a crime. Truly Do Deere and her cosmetics brand Lime Crime are a class apart.
