This New Hampshire County Switched From Obama to Trump. How the Opioid Crisis May Have Influenced That.

COLEBROOK, N.H.—His left foot in a walking boot after surgery, Rick Samson, an independent-minded county commissioner in the northernmost part of New Hampshire, is behind the wheel of his pickup truck, describing how this region—“North Country” to locals—is used to going it alone. “I run as a Republican, however I consider myself neither a Republican or Democrat, or conservative, or liberal—I am an American and that’s where it starts,” Samson, 70, says in a New England accent that reveals exactly where he’s from. So it’s totally within character for the people of Coos County, whom Samson serves, to depend on themselves to overcome the county’s distinction as the place with the highest combined death rate due to drugs, alcohol, or suicide in all of New England. Part 1 of 5: The Crisis That … Read entire article »

US Missile Defense Technology Has Reached a New High. Why the US Must Keep Expanding Its Edge.

North Korean threats to strike the U.S. have hit a new obstacle. On Tuesday, the U.S. Missile Defense Agency conducted a successful test of the ground-based midcourse defense system. The test presents a seminal point in the development of the system because for the first time ever, it managed to shoot down an intercontinental-range ballistic missile target—a feat many had thought impossible. Intercepting such a target at thousands of miles an hour is true rocket science and an impressive achievement of American technological ingenuity. The successful test is a validation of critical work that has been done on the system since its inception after the United States withdrew from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Defense Treaty in 2002. The test comes at an important time as North Korea threatens to use its ballistic missiles to strike the U.S. … Read entire article »

Encouraging News for Americans Harmed by Obamacare Contraception Mandate

Among Obamacare’s many problems, one of the most troubling is its mandate that nearly all insurance plans must cover abortion-inducing drugs and contraception. As Congress moves to repeal and replace the onerous health care law, the Trump administration is taking steps to free Americans with conscience objections from this onerous requirement, known as the “HHS mandate.” On May 23, the Office of Management and Budget indicated that it is reviewing an interim final rule regarding current exemptions to the contraception mandate. A leaked draft copy indicates that, where the Obama administration proposed wholly inadequate “accommodations” for religious liberty, the Trump administration intends to provide a definitive exemption for individuals, employers, and insurers with religious or moral objections to all or some of the Department of Health and Human Services mandate. This is sound policy that … Read entire article »

March for Life Wants Justice Department to Investigate Planned Parenthood

The March for Life, along with over a dozen other organizations, signed a letter released Tuesday asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI acting Director Andrew McCabe to investigate Planned Parenthood’s involvement in the selling of fetal tissue. “We, the undersigned representing millions of Americans, strongly support an investigation into paid fetal tissue transfers involving Planned Parenthood,” the signers write. The letter is prompted by the work of David Daleiden, an investigative journalist who founded the Center for Medical Progress, a nonprofit organization of “citizen journalists dedicated to monitoring and reporting on medical ethics and advances.” As part of his work, “Daleiden recorded doctors, executives, and staff-level employees discussing various aspects of the fetal tissue procurement industry,” the signers write. Daleiden and a contractor hired by Center for Medical Progress, Sandra Merritt, are … Read entire article »

Why Cities Shouldn’t Take Down Confederate Statues

Why Cities Shouldn’t Take Down Confederate Statues

Social justice warriors seem to have hit a wall in American politics. Perhaps sensing that their attempts to fundamentally transform America through top-down control have reached their limit, they are doubling down on reshaping America from the ground up. Their new favorite target is American history, and they are starting with low-hanging fruit: Confederate monuments. Activists are stridently taking their crusades from the college campus to a town near you, systematically pushing cities to change street names, tear … Read entire article »
