Al Gore Likens the Climate Change Movement to Campaign Ending Slavery

Former Vice President Al Gore compared the fight to end man-made global warming to the abolishment of slavery and the push for gay marriage. “The abolition of slavery, woman’s suffrage … and more recently the gay rights movement,” Gore said Thursday about the importance of staying ahead of the curve on environmental issues. The mission to reduce the Earth’s temperature is on par with other “great moral causes” that have improved humanity, he told an audience at the EcoCity World Summit in Australia. Gore has made similar comments in the past. He told reporters in 2013 that so-called climate change “deniers” are like alcoholic fathers who act belligerently when someone mentions the issue. “It’s like a family with an alcoholic father who flies into a rage every time a subject is mentioned and so everybody avoids the … Read entire article »

Why the Revised Senate Health Care Bill Is a Major Improvement Over the Status Quo

On Thursday, the Senate Republican leadership unveiled an updated version of the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017. While it is an imperfect legislative product, it is nonetheless a major improvement over the status quo. Obamacare has wrecked both the individual and small group health insurance markets. After seven years, millions of Americans enrolled in the individual markets have suffered premium rate shocks—amounting to 25 percent on average this year alone—breathtaking increases in their deductibles, and precipitous declines in choice and competition within the individual market. This week, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services reported that fewer insurers have applied to sell Obamacare plans for 2018. Today, a stunning 70 percent of American counties have only one or two health insurers offering plans. The Senate health bill released Thursday represents a solid first … Read entire article »

McCain, Tunisian Leader Urge US Aid to Sow Democracy in Middle East

Tunisia’s commitment to democracy provides hope for a region awash in tumult, but the North African nation needs U.S. aid to move forward, its top government official says. And the Tunisian leader has a backer in Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. Warning that “no country can address challenges without support from the international community,” Tunisian Chief of Government Youssef Chahed used a speech Tuesday at The Heritage Foundation to encourage the United States to further both its own security and the flourishing of the Middle East by continuing to provide “valuable assistance” to Tunisia. President Donald Trump’s fiscal 2018 budget would slash aid to Tunisia from $177 million a year to $54 million a year, a move that McCain, who spoke after Chahed, indicted as “misguided and … Read entire article »

Religious Freedom Advocates Fire Back After ‘Hate Group’ Smear Over Jeff Sessions Speech

The Southern Poverty Law Center, once revered but now often ridiculed, again attacked a prominent religious liberty organization as an “anti-LGBT hate group” after Attorney General Jeff Sessions spoke at its conference in California. “The Southern Poverty Law Center is the real hate group here,” @Vadum says. The Christian legal aid group, Alliance Defending Freedom, fired back Thursday in a statement criticizing both the Southern Poverty Law Center and media coverage that adopts “cut-and-paste false charges” from the SPLC’s charged rhetoric. “Alliance Defending Freedom is one of the most respected and successful Supreme Court advocates in the legal profession, having won seven cases at the High Court in the last seven years,” Kerri Kupec, communications director for Alliance Defending Freedom, or ADF, said in the prepared statement, adding: Southern Poverty Law Center spends its … Read entire article »

Conservatives Look for Lower Premiums in Senate’s Revised Health Care Bill

The Senate’s Republican leadership released a revised health care bill Thursday afternoon, a move welcomed by House conservatives even as they were reluctant to comment before digesting it. “We are going to withhold judgment,” Mark Meadows, chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, said earlier in the day during the monthly Conversations With Conservatives event on Capitol Hill, but emphasized that the major goal is to drive down skyrocketing health insurance premiums under Obamacare. “We’ve got to bring premiums down,” Meadows said, adding: The bottom line is this: That has been our No. 1 thing from Day One. We’ve got to bring premiums down, and hopefully we will get there. Meadows also stressed the importance of a proposed amendment by Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Mike Lee, R-Utah, aimed at allowing insurance companies … Read entire article »

Hawaii to Force Pro-Life Pregnancy Centers to Advertise Free Abortions

All five of Hawaii’s pro-life pregnancy centers will be forced to choose between advertising free abortions and defying the state’s demands starting Wednesday, after Gov. David Ige allowed a mandatory disclaimer bill to become law Tuesday night. Mirroring a 2015 California law, Hawaii’s edict forces locally funded pregnancy centers to post and distribute to each client a notification that the state offers free abortions, as well as a website link on where and how to schedule a taxpayer-funded abortion. The mandated signage and disclaimer form must include the following verbiage: This clinic does not provide abortion services or abortion referrals. Only ultrasounds performed by qualified healthcare professionals and read by licensed clinicians should be considered medically accurate. Hawaii has public programs that provide immediate free or low-cost access to comprehensive family planning services including all … Read entire article »
