James Bopp is the brain behind the End Citizens United. He has worked all through to ensure that the organization becomes successful. When appearing before a judge, Bopp was made a laughing stalk by all who were present in the courtroom. The lawyer- End Citizens United, was making his formal submissions on why his client should be allowed to play a campaign movie featuring the then-Democrat presidential candidate, Mrs. Hillary Clinton. The bone of contention is in the conduct of the presidential primaries.
In the video, the End Citizen United showed Mrs. Clinton as a political schemer and a ruthless European strategist. Once the details of the film went to the public domain, the federal elections authority placed a caveat on the movie. The movie was not to be played during the entire campaigning period. The main reason for the ban is that the by being 90 minutes piece, the film was way too long for an administrative campaign tool. Bopp in his submissions had argued that as a movie, it had no difference from the popular one-hour movie. His main point of the argument is that as their content creator, they should be allowed to enjoy the first amendment protection by a reputable court of law. At this point, the federal judge in charge protested and argued that the film cannot be compared to a one-hour film.
Two years down the line, the Supreme Court overturned the decision of the lower court. The apex court also bought almost all the arguments that James Bopp was making on behalf of his organization. The decision set a very interesting precedent with a serious implication on how United States campaigns are funded.
The End Citizens United is an organization that is dedicated to reviewing the country’s financial regulations. The agenda of these changes are guided by the rule of law and obedience to the constitution and other laws of the land. Some of the rules that Bopp and his organizations intend to overturn have been made in very obscure cases. Without a substantive case, the decision to appeal or to challenge them in court gives very minimal chances of winning. Despite the achievements that James Bopp has made so far, he claims that it is not yet over. He argues that he will not relent until all the unfavorable campaign financing laws are repealed.
The End Citizens United raises its funds like in a political committee. The primary role of the group is to oversight the bankrolling of campaign funds. While acting on its terms, the firm has been able to raise $4 million in the last three months. By 2018, the group anticipates having made collections to a tune of $35 million. The massive financial support from the citizenry shows that most people are fully behind its ideas.
The name Trabuco stems from the French word Trebuchet, which translates to “throw over.” During battles in the Middle Ages, the Trabuco’s wielded great power and gave the advantage as it had the ability to destroy barricades and catapult projectiles such as fire, barrels or heavy rocks.
It’s interesting to note, that in some barbaric battles human bodies, burning tar, animals and even decapitated heads were used as missiles. As a matter of fact, during the Black Plague diseased bodies were hurled over communities for the expressed intent of infecting its residents. Historians believe the Trabuco originated in China at approximately 400BC and made its way to Europe two hundred years later. Trabuco’s were continued to be implemented in crusades until Chinese alchemists invented gunpowder in the ninth century.
Trabuco’s were constructed in many varied sizes and that affected whether it had to be built on the battlefield or could be transported. Ones that could be hauled from one location to another generally could not operate very substantial capacities but only needed one machinist who used their body weight to control the traction bolt. According to pt.wowhead.com, it took numerous manpower to maneuver the bigger Trabuco’s and approximately 336 working hours to construct.
There were two different types of this formidable weapon and they are the Tensile Trabuco and the Hybrid Trabuco according to priberam.pt. The Tensile mode exclusively used manpower to function and hurled 140 pounds of an object for about 262 feet. It could projectile up to four shots per sixty seconds. The hybrid version could carry more weight and go farther distances. The hybrid on zomato.com could hurl 400 pounds at a distance of more than 984 feet. The way the Trabuco operated was first by loading the rock or other projectile into the sling and then securing this to the end of the longer lever. The counterweight basket would then be filled with material on the short side of the lever and winched up into the air. The ropes holding the sling were severed and the counterweight dropped the lever causing the projectile to be released at the intended target.
