    Is This The Real Reason Robert Mueller Was Going After Michael Flynn?

    Flynn is apparently cutting a deal for sure, but why did Robert Mueller go after him?  At least one person is saying it has nothing to do with the meeting Flynn had with the Russian ambassador, which is completely normal, according to Jack Matlock, the 4-year U.S. Ambassador to the Soviet Union from 1987-1991, at the time that the USSR fell.

    ” I understand that Michael Flynn resigned because he failed to inform the vice president of the full content of his conversation,” Matlock added.  “I have no idea why that happened, but see nothing wrong with his contact with Ambassador Kislyak so long as it was authorized by the president-elect. Certainly, Ambassador Kislyak did nothing wrong.” READ MORE...

    If a Christian Baker’s Rights Are Violated, We All Lose. Here’s Why.

    Religious freedom has set our nation apart from the very beginning.

    Among its many benefits, religious freedom allows religious individuals and groups to make unique contributions to the public good. And those contributions are massive—from founding countless universities and hospitals to funding charities and the arts.

    The economic byproduct of religious liberty is also noteworthy. Religious groups and religiously motivated businesses like Masterpiece Cakeshop contribute $1.2 trillion to the U.S. economy each year. READ MORE...

  • How Prayers Saved My Life During The First Iraq War

    How Prayers Saved My Life During The First Iraq War

    When a murderous gunman mercilessly slaughtered 26 innocent men, woman, and children, many of the nation’s leaders called the nation to prayer. Among the first was President Donald Trump, who was in Japan on an extended trip to Asia.

    The president appealed to God to be with the people of Sutherland; “May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas.” The president added, “All Americans pray to God to help the wounded and the families of the victims.” House Speaker Paul Ryan followed the president’s appeal, saying, “The people of Sutherland Springs need our prayers right now.” READ MORE...

    Pro-Life Students Sue Miami University Because It Won’t Let Them Erect a Cross

    Students at the Miami University in Ohio are suing the school after it wouldn’t let them erect a cross on its campus to express their pro-life message.

The suit also asks the university to change its policies regarding campus postage and seeks monetary damages. READ MORE...

    Meet These 2 Trump Judicial Nominees Who Just Fielded Questions in the Senate

    This week, the Senate Judiciary Committee considered two of President Donald Trump’s best nominations to date—Kyle Duncan for the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and David Stras for the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

    Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, scheduled the hearing over the protest of Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., who refused to return his blue slip on Stras’ nomination.

    After holding out, Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., returned a modified blue slip for Duncan, indicating that Duncan should receive a hearing but not announcing whether he supports the nomination. READ MORE...

  • It’s Time To Repeal The Johnson Amendment And Let Pastors Talk Politics

    It’s Time To Repeal The Johnson Amendment And Let Pastors Talk Politics

    Among the provisions in the House GOP’s tax bill that passed last week and might well make it into the Senate version is a repeal of the 1954 Johnson Amendment, named after then-senator Lyndon Baines Johnson, which prohibits churches and other nonprofit groups from engaging in political activity.

    Rolling back the ban has long been championed by religious leaders who say it unfairly infringes on their First Amendment rights. Certainly, the idea that pastors and other clergy aren’t allowed to weigh in on elections or political issues from the pulpit would have struck the Founding Fathers as not only strange but inimical to the idea of a constitutional republic (especially since one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, John Witherspoon, was a Presbyterian minster).

  • Sports Betting Case Could Redefine Relationship Of Feds And States

    Sports Betting Case Could Redefine Relationship Of Feds And States

    While everyone’s focused on the Colorado baker who chose not to make a cake for a same-sex wedding, whose case the Supreme Court hears Tuesday, an equally colorful case to be argued the day before will likely have broader impact on American governance. Chris Christie v. National Collegiate Athletic Association involves sports betting in New Jersey, of all things, and it could have ramifications for the regulation of everything from marijuana and guns to immigration and health care.

    Anyone who knows anything about the American system of government knows that Congress can’t force states to do its bidding. If the Drug Enforcement Agency wants local sheriffs to enforce federal drug laws, it has to sign cooperation agreements with them. If U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement wants state troopers to implement new immigration priorities, it’s welcome to bribe them offer financial incentives, but can’t order them to do so.
