We Hear You: Obamacare and ‘Progress in Wrong Direction’

Editor’s note:  This weekend we reach deeper into the mailbag for a smattering of your views on a bunch of different issues. Let’s lead off with observations on the state of our union by Anthony Cosenza, a Defense Department veteran who teaches at Philadelphia University these days. Enjoy.—Ken McIntyre Dear Daily Signal: This is regarding your reporting on Obamacare versus the American Health Care Act (RINOcare). I am, unfortunately, a conservative adjunct professor in the bowels of the progressive, neocommunist academe in the city of Philadelphia—a liberal, Democrat bastion. The level of student naiveté and faculty propagandizing for the neocommunist agenda is debilitating. I also worked 40 years for the Department of Defense, paying taxes from both jobs as part of my polity contribution. I have been subsidizing the government waste factory, the politically well connected who … Read entire article »

‘Communism for Kids’ Turns Deadly Ideology Into a Fairy Tale

In order to make the deadliest ideology of the 20th century palatable to young Americans, “Communism for Kids” is coming to a bookstore near you. This newly released book from MIT Press “proposes a different kind of communism, one that is true to its ideals and free from authoritarianism.” The death toll from communist regimes in the 20th century is well-documented. One study found that more people were killed under communism than homicide and genocide combined, and only 9 million more people were killed in World War I and World War II combined than under governments of this ideology. Another study showed how the mass killings of civilians by their own governments took an immediate nosedive after the collapse of the Soviet Union and international communism. According to the Amazon synopsis, the book weaves … Read entire article »

What This Supreme Court Case Could Mean for School Choice

This week, a dispute over playground surfaces in Missouri made its way to the Supreme Court. At question was the constitutionality of a provision in Missouri’s state constitution known as a Blaine Amendment. The court heard oral arguments on Wednesday for Trinity Lutheran v. Comer, a case involving a Lutheran preschool and its application to a state grant program that helps nonprofits resurface playgrounds with recycled rubber. Trinity Lutheran Church in Columbia, Missouri, operates a preschool and daycare center, and its property includes a playground that is open to the public. When the Trinity Lutheran Child Learning Center applied to a state grant program to help resurface its playground, its application was denied on the basis of a provision in the Missouri state constitution that prevents public aid from going to religious institutions. The … Read entire article »

How to Address the Looming Crisis of Physician Shortages

As the struggle to repeal and replace Obamacare with a plan that will decrease fast-rising and exorbitant premiums as well as increasing consumer choice rages on, another health care crisis looms. Americans are facing an increasing shortage of primary care physicians, and the problem is only expected to get worse over the next 10 years. Imagine a world where everyone has to travel hours to find a doctor who is able to provide treatment and lifesaving medicine. Imagine having a child fall ill, but the nearest pediatrician being many miles away. This shortage is already affecting communities nationwide. Many have begun to lack much-needed medical services, and this pressure is most deeply felt in rural communities. The coming crisis has multiple causes, one being the aging pool of physicians. As older physicians begin to retire … Read entire article »

Trump, Sessions Target MS-13 Gang in Push Against Illegal Immigration

President Donald Trump’s administration has initiated an effort to target MS-13, an international criminal gang founded by El Salvadorian immigrants in Los Angeles. Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly have all recently mentioned the gang by highlighting its dangers and explaining how they will combat the group. In a Tuesday tweet, Trump blamed the Obama administration’s “weak illegal immigration policies” for MS-13’s increase in size and strength. He also noted that he plans to remove members of the gang “fast.” The weak illegal immigration policies of the Obama Admin. allowed bad MS 13 gangs to form in cities across U.S. We are removing them fast! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 18, 2017 In a Fox News interview with host Tucker Carlson this week, Sessions echoed Trump’s point by casting blame … Read entire article »

The Importance of Expanding US-India Naval Cooperation

While much of the focus for U.S. naval diplomacy remains centered on the Asia-Pacific, Chinese activity in the Indian Ocean region is a growing concern, given the large amount of trade that passes through the area. The U.S. can counter growing challenges in the Indian Ocean by expanding and regularizing cooperation with India, the predominant naval power in this region. A key facet of the current U.S. approach to naval strategy in the Indo-Pacific region involves the cultivation of regional partners to improve security. The most recent maritime strategy document for India also emphasizes cooperation with foreign navies, creating an opportunity for the U.S. to expand naval relations as both seek partners to deal with maritime challenges. This also assumes that stronger relations at the tactical and military level will positively influence the broader … Read entire article »

Most Say Europeans Need More U.S. Help to Fight Terror

Most Americans worry that France is losing the fight against radical Islamic terrorism and think the United States and the rest of the world should step up to help turn the tide. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 34% of American Adults are confident that the French government will be able to stop the current wave of radical Islamic terrorism in its country, and that includes just five percent (5%) who are Very Confident.

**Written by Doug Powers Yesterday, Barack Obama told an audience in Chicago what’s wrong with DC politics: The ex-prez is still leading by example in his own curious way: That Hillary-esque shot & chaser made for a funny juxtaposition, but CNN was too busy blushing to take much notice in anything like that: Need a minute alone, CNN?

If this doesn’t sell you on Bill Nye’s scientist cred, NOTHING will

**Written by Doug Powers The words “My Sex Junk” and “Bill Nye in the same title is all you need to know, and apologies in advance to those who haven’t seen this clip from the Netflix show hosted by the nation’s foremost self-acclaimed climatologist that dropped on the same week as the “March for Science” and “Earth Day.” The science is settled — you might want to take some sort of antiemetic before clicking “play”: The only reason I really wanted to share that is so everybody has an idea of who our scientific betters are, but now for some reason I’m in the mood to go set fire to a giant mountain of tires bathed in diesel fuel.
