We Hear You: I’m a Sailor, a Marine, and a Transgender Woman Who Was Born This Way

Editor’s note: One reader who we heard from awhile back marked March 31 as Transgender Day of Visibility. So this weekend seemed like a fitting opportunity  to publish the letter as the lead item in our mailbag.—Ken McIntyre  Dear Daily Signal: At first I was going to ignore Kelsey Harkness’ video report and the comments, but there comes a time when what I served our great nation for must be stated plainly (“Lost Voices in the Transgender Debate: Liberals and Conservatives Unite”). I served for all Americans. I served so that you may hold opinions not based in logic, reason, or science. I served for your rights and freedoms. So by all means, feel free to express your beliefs and opinions. I served as an enlisted person in the Navy and as an officer in the best … Read entire article »

UN Takes a Key Step to Address Humanitarian Crisis in Burma

The United Nations approved a resolution on March 24 authorizing a fact-finding mission into human rights violations in Burma. The resolution is the most serious intervention thus far in Rakhine State, where the majority of the 1.2 million Rohingya Muslim population resides. The resolution, adopted by consensus, addresses a wide range of human rights concerns. For one thing, it urges the Burmese government to continue its efforts to eliminate statelessness and institutionalized discrimination against members of ethnic and religious minorities, including the Rohingya minority. It also calls upon the government to amend or repeal all discriminatory legislation and policies, and takes measures to ensure a safe return of all internally displaced people and refugees. In light of the severe human rights crisis faced by Rohingya displaced in Rakhine, the resolution marks a major step … Read entire article »

Leading Conservative Groups Stand With Freedom Caucus After Trump Attacks

A group of conservative leaders defended the House Freedom Caucus for sticking to its principles in the debate over the House health care bill on Friday. “I urge the president to rethink these attacks on the Freedom Caucus,” said L. Brent Bozell III, a Republican advocacy leader, during a conference call filled with top conservatives defending the Freedom Caucus against President Donald Trump’s recent attacks directed toward the group. “Not only is [Trump] going to need the Freedom Caucus in virtually every single fight to come, but, the irony is, the Freedom Caucus is going to be his strongest supporters in the battle ahead, so [Trump’s attacks need] to be reconsidered,” Bozell added. The groups in the Friday conference call included Bozell’s ForAmerica, Tea Party Patriots, Heritage Action for America, FreedomWorks, Senate Conservatives … Read entire article »

Congress Right to Affirm That States Can Defund Planned Parenthood

It isn’t often that Congress moves a heavy burden off the backs of the states and allows them the freedom to be actual “laboratories of democracy.” Yet the Senate did just that Thursday in voting 51-50 (with Vice President Mike Pence breaking the tie) to invoke the Congressional Review Act to rescind an Obama administration rule that prohibited the states from defunding Planned Parenthood. The rule blocked states from redirecting public health funding to other health care providers that better serve women’s health. But now the Senate has joined the House of Representatives, which passed the resolution earlier this year, and the measure heads to President Donald Trump’s desk, where his signature is expected. Fifteen states have acted to defund Planned Parenthood and others who perform elective abortions in the last couple … Read entire article »

Do GOP Voters’ Views Still Strongly Align With Trump’s?

Voters are now evenly divided on which party’s views align more closely to their own, but the margin among Republican voters is shrinking when it comes to whether they think more like President Donald Trump or Republicans in Congress. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters say their views are closer to Trump and the average GOP member in Congress, including 33% who identify more with Trump’s views and 13% who align their views more to the average Congressional Republican.

How selfless! Chuck Schumer offers to work with Republicans to find a SCOTUS nominee more acceptable to Dems

How selfless! Chuck Schumer offers to work with Republicans to find a SCOTUS nominee more acceptable to Dems

**Written by Doug Powers It’s looking like “nuclear option” time in the Senate during the Gorsuch confirmation vote later this week, and with that, Chuck Schumer is extending an olive branch covered with razor blades: At the same time, Democrats have operated on two tracks: They have sought to present their opponents as hypocrites by reminding the public about Judge Merrick B. Garland, President Barack Obama’s nominee for the seat last year, whom Republicans refused to even … Read entire article »

Former Obama adviser routinely not based in fact: These surveillance allegations have no basis in fact

**Written by Doug Powers Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, the Obama official who helped blame Benghazi on a video multiple times and told the country that Bowe Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction,” said today that President Trump’s wiretap allegation has “no basis in fact.” Take it from an expert! This is a helluva hand-holding inquisition by Rice’s interview expedition Sherpa Andrea Mitchell: Partial excerpt from Grabien: RICE: “Andrea, this is not anything political that has been alleged. The allegation is that somehow the Obama Administration officials utilized intelligence for political purposes. That’s absolutely false. Let me explain how this works. I was the national security adviser. My job is to protect the American people and the security of our country. That’s the same as the secretary of state, the secretary … Read entire article »

**Written by Doug Powers Start the countdown to Susan Rice blaming this on a video: Multiple sources tell Fox News that Susan Rice, former national security adviser under then-President Barack Obama, requested to unmask the names of Trump transition officials caught up in surveillance. The unmasked names, of people associated with Donald Trump, were then sent to all those at the National Security Council, some at the Defense Department, then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and then-CIA Director … Read entire article »
