Trump Meets Putin, Mexican President Pena Nieto at G-20

President Donald Trump met Friday in Germany with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and Russian President Vladimir Putin—two leaders who have been central figures in his presidency for very different reasons—talking about a border wall, violence in Syria, and the interfering with the 2016 presidential campaign. Trump asserted he still expects Mexico to pay for the security wall along the southern border, but said nothing in response to reporters about alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reportedly said Trump and Putin reached a “defined agreement” about curbing the violence in Syria. Tillerson added, “This is our first indication of the U.S. and Russia being able to work together in Syria.” Tillerson further told reporters Trump and Putin had a lengthy talk about the Russian interference in … Read entire article »

School-Based Health Services and Medicaid in Context: A Better Way to Pay

Congressional efforts to reform health care include capping federal funding and streamlining Medicaid to refocus it on its original, neediest recipients and slow the rate of growth for what has become an expensive, unrestricted entitlement threatening the future of the safety net for those in greatest need. Yet critics argue that such efforts would adversely impact low-income schools, which in some cases tap into Medicaid for reimbursements for certain health care-related costs, such as school nurses and other health care professionals, and equipment for children with special needs. Critics charge that limits on Medicaid would “put schools in competition with hospitals and doctors’ offices for coveted funds—a shift they say that’s sure to leave them short-changed.” But the health care reform proposal making its way through Congress does not actually prescribe any reductions … Read entire article »

Trump’s Foreign Trip Tells a Tale of 2 Europes

The reception for President Donald Trump received in two European countries during his second foreign trip couldn’t be more different. In Poland, Trump was greeted by cheering crowds as he stood in the sunshine in Krasinski Square. This is where Pope John Paul II made an earthshaking address in 1979 as the Cold War entered its final phase. Trump’s speech was superbly crafted and rich in historical context, and it was firm in commitment to the freedom and prosperity of all of Europe. Of course, it was particularly tailored to Poland, a country with which the United States has deep and warm ties. As a bulwark against the inroads of Russian propaganda and influence peddling, which the Kremlin is targeting at the European media and political systems, Trump’s presence in Poland and his … Read entire article »

One Year After Dallas Police Shooting, Anti-Cop Hostility Still Threatens Our Society

One year ago, the American law enforcement community suffered through what was arguably it’s most trying and emotionally difficult event since 9/11. July 7, 2016, marked the day that a deranged man, seemingly motivated by nothing more than an intense hatred of law enforcement, assassinated five Dallas-area police officers. The rawness of that tragedy was only deepened by the subsequent murder of three Baton Rouge police officers only 10 days later. Then-candidate Donald Trump said the murders had “shaken the soul of our nation.” He added, “A brutal attack on our police force is an attack on our country, and an attack on our families. We must stand in solidarity with law enforcement, which we must remember is the force between civilization and total chaos.” Trump’s solemn words rang true then, and they still resonate today. An unprovoked attack on any … Read entire article »

Let the States Lead on Drone Regulation

Last month, drone industry executives told President Donald Trump they needed more regulation, not less, before they could expand further—a man-bites-dog story if ever there was one. But the answer isn’t to keep waiting on Washington. It’s to make use of one of our nation’s founding principles: federalism. For now, the drone industry is grounded because the Federal Aviation Administration hasn’t written guidelines for drones that fly beyond the operator’s line of sight. Rules are also absent for drone flights at night. It will take years for this bureaucratic behemoth to pass through all the procedural hoops and hurdles necessary to produce a comprehensive regulatory scheme. The agency itself predicts drones won’t be fully integrated into our nation’s airspace until 2025. But our rivals aren’t waiting. The Chinese-based manufacturer DJI is dominating the drone … Read entire article »

‘New tone,’ Bernie-style: GOP health bill would be like several 9/11’s every year

**Written by Doug Powers It seems like less than a month ago that Bernie Sanders put out a statement condemning the Alexandria shooting by a nutjob who had volunteered on his campaign while other Dems called for dialing down the extreme rhetoric. Wait, it was less than a month ago — but already Sanders is back to doing his thing after a break of maybe 10 minutes, if that: “Now obviously nobody can predict exactly how many people will die if they lose their coverage. Nobody can make that prediction,” Sanders said at a rally in Morgantown, W.Va. “But what experts at the Harvard School of Public Health estimate, is that if 23 million Americans were to be thrown off the insurance they currently have, which is what the House bill would … Read entire article »
