Texas Takes Steps to Protect Religious Convictions of Adoption, Foster Care Providers

Texas lawmakers are debating a bill that shows how states can protect faith-based adoption and foster care providers from religious discrimination, proponents of the legislation say. The Texas House of Representatives voted 93-49 Wednesday to pass a bill that would make room in a changing society for adoption and foster care providers associated with a religious tradition, whether Catholicism, Protestantism, Judaism, or Islam.   The bill now moves to the Texas Senate, where a vote is expected before the legislative session ends May 29.

Betsy DeVos Says We Should ‘Start Fresh’ on Higher Ed. Here’s Where to Start.

Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos stated during a speech in Salt Lake City on Tuesday that instead of reauthorizing the Higher Education Act, lawmakers should consider a “fresh start.” Yes, Congress should consider alternatives to the Higher Education Act, which authorizes all federal higher education spending such as student loans and grants. Enacted in 1965 under President Lyndon Johnson, the Higher Education Act has undergone countless amendments that pass problems on to future generations. As the secretary said, “Why wouldn’t we start afresh and talk about what we need in this century and beyond for educating and helping our young people learn?” (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Indeed, higher education badly needs to be adapted to the changing requirements of the American workforce.

Fight Over Soros-Founded Hungarian University Shows US’ Power Vacuum in Europe

That nature abhors a vacuum is a cliché but also a postulate about the immutable laws of nature. And once again, we’re seeing the unchangeable rules of the physical world being replicated in human action—especially in foreign policy. Exhibit A is Europe east of the Fulda Gap, where Obama appointees are still dictating American policy and a group of senators had a testy exchange with the combative leader of Hungary. To be clear, there is no power vacuum when it comes to hot spots like Afghanistan, North Korea, and Syria, where the Trump Defense Department has acted decisively. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has also personally handled the Russian front. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); The world is vast, however, and Tillerson is only one man. The absence of assistant secretaries for Africa, Europe, … Read entire article »

Here Are 12 Possible Comey Replacements at FBI

There’s no shortage of familiar names floating to be the next FBI director, after President Donald Trump’s controversial firing of James Comey earlier this week. “The president shouldn’t nominate anyone who has a clearly partisan background,” Ron Hosko says. But it appears former Republican Rep. Mike Rogers of Michigan could be an early favorite among current and former agents. Other names in the mix are Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C.; Judge Merrick Garland; former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice; New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie; and former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); The FBI Agents Association, or FBIAA, a group of more than 13,000 current and former FBI agents, endorsed Rogers to replace Robert Mueller for the post in 2013, but President Barack Obama instead nominated Comey.

Aetna’s Withdrawal From Exchanges Highlights Obamacare’s Inherent Problems

A major insurance company has decided to entirely withdraw from all of Obamacare‘s health insurance exchanges in 2018. According to the Washington Examiner, the experience with Obamacare has been a financial disaster for Aetna, one of the nation’s largest insurance companies. The insurance giant sustained almost $700 million in losses between 2014 and 2016, and an estimated $200 million in projected losses for 2017. Aetna joins a long line of insurers and health plans that have decided that the individual markets designed in exquisite regulatory detail by the Obama administration and its allies in Congress are no longer working. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); As designed, they can’t work. This is a feature, not a bug of Obamacare, and why Congress needs to repeal and replace this dysfunctional law.
