Freedom Isn’t Free: An Independence Day Reminder From the War in Ukraine

KYIV, Ukraine—I arrived in Ukraine for the first time in July 2014, three years ago this month. I originally planned to stay for three weeks. I never would have thought then, that by Independence Day 2017, three years later, I’d still be here, still reporting on the war. On that warm summer day of my arrival in Kyiv three years ago, the taxi from the airport dropped me off at the top of Institutskaya Street, as it was still called at the time. (Today, it is Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred Street, in honor of the 100 protesters who died in the February 2014 revolution.) Trees green with summertime leaves lined the cobblestone street as it steeply ascended from the Maidan, Kyiv’s central square and epicenter of the revolution. Young couples in shorts … Read entire article »

This Trump Administration Move Could Have Led to Higher Costs, Fewer Fed From US Food Aid

A recent Reuters story reported that the Trump administration is drafting an executive order that would require 100 percent of U.S. food assistance to be shipped on U.S.-flagged vessels. CNBC has since reported that the Trump administration has reconsidered. Hopefully this is the case, as requiring U.S. food assistance to be shipped on U.S.-flagged vessels would undermine the impact of U.S. assistance and negate a key justification for the administration’s budget proposal on food assistance. The United States has been providing food assistance around the world for nearly six decades. It does so for humanitarian reasons to assist suffering populations, but also to support foreign policy interests in bolstering stability in fragile states and crises and to support agricultural development and related projects in developing nations. The U.S. provides food assistance through a number … Read entire article »

Cosmopolitan, Elle, and the Attack Against Conservative Women

Cosmopolitan magazine recently published an article with a headline that read “7 Women Who Could Be Our First Female President.” Among those seven, of course, is not a single conservative or Republican-leaning lady. Instead, Cosmo lists a handful of progressive women who it believes are “eminently qualified” for the job. But in reality, there’s no shortage of right-leaning women also “eminently qualified” to be president of the United States. We have U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, Utah Congresswoman Mia Love, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst, and New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez. In the end, though, this irresponsible “journalism” shouldn’t come as a surprise. In fact, it’s only the latest assault against Republican and conservative women originating—ironically—inside a “women’s magazine.” Recently, Elle magazine published an article titled “How Do We Criticize Problematic … Read entire article »

39% Think Trump’s Temporary Travel Ban Will Make U.S. Safer

The Supreme Court has temporarily allowed President Trump’s newest travel ban against people from six majority-Muslim nations to go into effect, but with strict limitations, and they still intend to hear arguments on the ban in October. Trump claims the ban will keep the country safe, but voters are not sure they agree. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 39% of Likely U.S. Voters think Trump’s plan to temporarily bar entry to the United States for people from Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen will make the United States safer. Just 19% think it will make this country less safe, but another 37% think the ban will have no impact on safety. (To see survey question wording, click here.) (Want a free daily e-mail update?

Either Dems are testing 2018 slogans or a GOP operative has infiltrated the DCCC

Either Dems are testing 2018 slogans or a GOP operative has infiltrated the DCCC

**Written by Doug Powers The Democrats, in an apparent run-up to eventually re-nominating Hillary Clinton in 2020 and putting another giant exclamation point at the end of the definition of insanity, are first testing some slogans inadvertently designed to keep Congress in Republican hands late next year: The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has sent out some “tester” bumper stickers for the midterm elections that have been met with about as much warmth as a fender bender. One … Read entire article »

CNN swings for Pulitzer fences by blowing lid off gif-gate
