• Renewed US Leadership Blocks Abortion Agenda at the UN

    Renewed US Leadership Blocks Abortion Agenda at the UN

    For the third time in the past four years, the United Nations Commission on Population and Development has ended in failure—good news for defenders of national sovereignty in the face of hegemonic U.N. pressures.

    Negotiations concluded last Friday without producing an outcome document, which is the whole purpose of the two-week process. The outcome document would set forth political recommendations for governments to follow with regard to population and development issues.

    The lack of a document means the last two weeks were a massively expensive waste of time. This, compounded upon previous failures, could lead to a collapse of the entire process, which dates back to 1946. READ MORE...

  • The Labor Board Is Now GOP-Run. Here’s 1 Big Change It Could Make to Rein In Unions.

    The Labor Board Is Now GOP-Run. Here’s 1 Big Change It Could Make to Rein In Unions.

    An Obama administration rule that fast-tracked elections to establish unions at private companies could be on the chopping block of a federal labor agency three years after going into effect.

    The new Republican majority on the National Labor Relations Board, led by recently confirmed chairman John Ring, could do what Republicans in Congress failed to do three times—eliminate what opponents call “ambush elections.”

    “The unions wanted to make it as quick as possible to have an election,” Patrick Semmens, spokesman for the National Right to Work Foundation, told The Daily Signal. “One way to do that is to push aside basic issues until after the elections, such as who is eligible to vote.” READ MORE...

    ‘America’s Back’ Because of Tax Cuts

    House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, sat down with The Daily Signal to talk about the historic tax reform package passed by Congress and the impact it will have, and in some cases already is having, on individuals, families, and the economy. On the midterm elections, Brady says the key question voters should ask themselves is whether they want to go back to the old tax system—which is what he believes Democrats will try to do if they win a majority—or to keep pushing for further reforms.

  • Lithuania Is a Post-Soviet Success Story

    Lithuania Is a Post-Soviet Success Story

    This year is the 100th anniversary of Lithuanian independence, and millions of Lithuanians are celebrating.

    But independence isn’t the only thing Lithuanians have to celebrate. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, economic freedom in Lithuania has grown by leaps and bounds—it is now ranked as one of the 20 freest economies in the world in The Heritage Foundation’s Index of Economic Freedom.

    When Lithuania first appeared in the index in 1996, it scored only 49.7 on the Index’s 0 to 100 scale, and it was deemed “economically repressed.” This year, by contrast, Lithuania scored 75.3, earning a “mostly free” rating. READ MORE...

    Andrew McCabe, FBI’s Former No. 2, Faces Criminal Probe for Lying, Leaking

    The Justice Department’s internal watchdog has asked for a criminal probe of the FBI’s recently ousted top deputy for leaking and lying to investigators, several media outlets report.

    Michael Horowitz, inspector general at the Justice Department and an appointee of President Barack Obama, sent a criminal referral on Andrew McCabe to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, according to news reports Thursday.

    McCabe, 50, joined the FBI in 1996. He had been the FBI’s deputy director since Jan. 29, 2016. Amid controversies, he either stepped down or was removed from his post to go on paid leave this past Jan. 29. READ MORE...

    Add These Voter Fraud Cases to the Growing List

    Despite the lack of media coverage, evidence of election fraud continues to mount.

    This week, The Heritage Foundation added 26 new entries to its election fraud database, bringing the searchable ledger to a total of 1,132 proven instances of election fraud. That includes 983 cases that ended in a criminal conviction, 48 that led to civil penalties, 79 where defendants were enrolled in a diversion program, and 22 cases of official or judicial findings of fraud.

    Americans should be alarmed. These entries represent irrefutable evidence that fraud has impacted elections in 47 states, and across all levels of government. READ MORE...

    Budget Director Mick Mulvaney Says He Will Ask Congress to Cut Spending in ‘Coming Weeks’

    Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney says his staff will soon be sending a package to Congress to rescind some of the planned spending in the $1.3 trillion omnibus bill signed last month by President Donald Trump.

    “[We] hope to have something here in the next couple weeks,” Mulvaney said Wednesday during a House appropriations subcommittee meeting, reports The Washington Times.

    Conservative lawmakers, such as Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va., want Trump to send a rescission request to Congress to cancel nondefense spending that the legislators previously approved in the 2,000-plus-page omnibus bill. READ MORE...
