In a blow to public sector unions, Supreme Court overturns 40-year-old precedent

The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 on Wednesday in Janus v. AFSCME that nonunion workers cannot be forced to pay fees to public sector unions.

The case, one of the most hotly anticipated of the term, is the second in two days to hand a major victory to conservatives, following Tuesday’s ruling by the high court that President Donald Trump’s travel ban is constitutional. Some experts had said a finding in favor of the plaintiff, Mark Janus, would be the most significant court decision affecting collective bargaining in decades.

Obama’s spying scandal is starting to look a lot like Watergate

F.B.I. Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims,” read the headline on a lengthy New York Times story May 18. “The Justice Department used a suspected informant to probe whether Trump campaign aides were making improper contacts with Russia in 2016,” read a story in the May 21 edition of the Wall Street Journal.

The Anti-Trump Media’s ‘Missing Kids’ Myth

The viral story not a mistake but the product of unchecked bias.  It was a mistake so egregious and so widespread that even the New York Times, the flagship of liberal journalism — and not the source of the original story — felt it had to devote an article to explaining how it happened.  Last weekend a horrifying tale about the Trump administration “losing” 1,500 children was all over the Internet. The hashtag #Wherearethechildren went viral on Twitter. Adding fuel to the fire was a photo depicting children being kept in cages.  The only problem was that the children weren’t lost and the photo was taken during the Obama administration. The Left’s eagerness to embrace this “fake news” stemmed, according to the Times’s Amanda Taub, from “partisan polarization,” and as a result the tale “spread across liberal social media.”

UN poverty report blasting Trump, US for ‘hatred for the poor’ uses data from last year of Obama’s presidency

A recent United Nations report blasting President Trump and America in general for harboring “contempt” and “hatred for the poor” is based on highly inaccurate data that can’t easily be used to compare the U.S. to other nations.  The U.N. report’s main contentions read like an attack on the Trump administration by the Democratic Party: America has 40 million poor people, including 18.5 million who live in extreme poverty; U.S. policies regarding the poor are “cruel and inhuman;” the Trump tax cuts aren’t working and will worsen inequality; and the U.S. needs to spend less on defense of our nation and more on social programs.

Why is the Democrats’ bizarre IT scandal being ignored?

While the focus in Washington, D.C. remains centered on the Mueller Russia probe, we cannot lose sight of another ongoing investigation on Capitol Hill. At the center of this developing scandal are the nefarious actions of a former Democratic congressional IT aide indicted last year on bank fraud charges, who at the time was being paid by a high-profile member of Congress although he was barred from the House computer systems.

David Bossie: State Department says it’ll take 45 to 65 YEARS to get me info on its role in the 2016 election

For years my organization, Citizens United, battled the Obama State Department over dozens of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and lawsuits. It became common knowledge that if you wanted to get information out of the State Department in a timely manner, you had to go to court.

Hashtag Hell: The Southern Baptist Convention and Dr. Paige Patterson

Dr. Paige Patterson is living in hashtag hell. You know, a barrage of public comments and opinions without full knowledge of the people or events involved. The nature of social media quickly spirals into a modern-day public stoning. People choose a side, then choose words to hurl like digital stones. While this may be common behavior for the lost, professing Christians have blatantly entered the ring. The behavior of Christians on both sides of the Paige Patterson issue is unbiblical. Biblical truth should transcend cultural trends and practices – always.

Illegal immigrants, who dodged California ICE raid after Dem mayor’s tip-off, re-arrested for new crimes

Three illegal immigrants, who avoided capture after Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf blew the whistle on a raid by federal immigration authorities last month, have since been re-arrested for new crimes including robbery and spousal abuse, ICE officials said.  Schaaf tweeted out a warning ahead of the raid in northern California last month, infuriating Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials and the Trump administration.  “How dare you!” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in California this month, addressing Schaaf. “How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical, open borders agenda.”

In the War Against Faith-Based Adoption Agencies, Children Lose

I’m a lawyer. I confess that math was never my strong suit, and I figured that law school would keep me safe from it.  I did, however, pick up on some of the more basic concepts—like greater than or less than, and more versus less.  Surely, we can all agree on the basic math supporting the following statements:

Not Always Like This

One of the unavoidable tragedies of youth is the temptation to think that what is seen today has always been. Nowhere is this more noticeable than in our responses to the recent Parkland, Florida, massacre. Part of the responses to those murders are calls to raise the age to purchase a gun and to have more thorough background checks — in a word, to make gun purchases more difficult. That’s a vision that sees easy gun availability as the problem; thus, the solution is to reduce that availability.

As Robyn Gritz found out, he’s not a gentleman.

In April 2015, National Public Radio reported on the case of former FBI Special Agent Robyn Gritz who had been forced out of the bureau after she “got crosswise with her supervisors.”  “When you’re fighting terror and you’re seeing buildings come down before you, you’re passionate and you’re emotional, and I think the American people want you to be that way when you’re fighting terror and keeping them safe,” she said.

he House Ethics Committee asked two Democratic lawmakers from Illinois to pay the U.S. Treasury after investigations found one used office space in his district for nearly three decades without paying rent and the other paid a staffer-turned-contractor for work that was sometimes legislative in nature.  In lengthy reports released Thursday, the ethics panel reproved Reps. Bobby Rush and Luis Gutiérrez for violating House rules and called on them to pay $13,310 and $9,700, respectively. The committee will consider the matters closed once the payments have been made, the reports said.

More Racist Rhetoric From South Africa: Whites ‘Must Leave Everything’

As violence against white farmers continues, following the South African parliament’s decision to seize all farmland from whites without compensation, Julius Malema, leader of the Marxist-Revolutionary Economic Freedom Party, continues to spew hateful rhetoric against South Africa’s white citizens.

In response, Australia has debated whether or not they would be offering emergency visas to white farmers if the hatred reaches dangerous levels. Malema says that if white farmers wish to flee to a “racist country” like Australia, then they should be free to do so. However, he denies that their lives are in any danger — even as he’s talked publicly about “cutting the throat of whiteness.”
