Conservative Groups Advocate for Curtailing Farm Bill

Fifteen organizations, including Heritage Action for America, have joined forces in a letter to members of Congress to combat “excessive federal government intervention” in the farming and ranching industries. The Agricultural Act of 2014, frequently called the “the farm bill,” is set to expire in September of 2018. With renewal talks already underway, the coalition has outlined three principles that it hopes will be evident in the next farm bill: Farmers should be allowed to compete freely in the marketplace. Like other businesses, farmers should be able to reap the rewards of competition. By removing existing interventionist policies that attempt to insulate farmers from market forces, such as low prices, the federal government will allow farmers to better respond to the market. At most, the federal government should only provide risk-related assistance for … Read entire article »

KYIV, Ukraine—Forget death and taxes. In Ukraine, nothing is certain but war and protests. In the country’s eastern Donbas region, the war against Russia and its separatist proxies has dragged on for three years. And in Kyiv’s government halls, meaningful anti-corruption reforms are advancing at a snail’s pace more than three years after the revolution.

How the NFL’s ‘Celebration’ Reforms Point the Way for Congress on Regulation

Part of what makes football great is fans’ reactions after a big play and seeing the players involved celebrate the action. But the National Football League didn’t seem to appreciate this in 2016. Rather than promoting clear, commonsense guidelines on what constitutes an “illegal” on-field celebration, the NFL started overregulating the game through broad, unclear rules and harsh penalties for violations. Following abundant opposition from fans and players, the NFL Competition Committee is considering changing its guidelines … Read entire article »

What ‘the Mother of All Bombs’ Means in Trump’s Foreign Policy

Why did America just drop the mother of all bombs? There is the glib answer: Because we can. Then there is the technical answer: Because it was right for the job. The U.S. military on Thursday dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb, the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb, on an Islamic State, also known as ISIS, target in eastern Afghanistan. The bomb, which weighs 21,600 pounds and extends 30 feet long, had never before been used in combat. In military operations, one of the considerations is to be proportional—use coercive force commensurate with the task, while taking due diligence to protect innocents. In this case, it appears the target was an underground complex—virtually a sanctuary, impossible to get at with conventional munitions. It was an important enemy target. This particular weapon creates a massive … Read entire article »
