    Wednesday, President Obama publicly announced that he is issuing an executive order that the U.S. government will no longer criminally prosecute families of American hostages for paying ransom.In so doing, he created a public market for the selling of American citizens—and raised the price on their heads considerably. <-- PJM_300_by_250_middle --> In real life, no American family has ever been prosecuted for paying ransom; but apparently the president wants to make sure that the terrorists know for sure, and that they can get their money without that nasty FBI getting in the way.We can’t have the families of hostages dealing...

And with all the recent news, it will be hard not to sigh a bit.

    A Catholic school in Macon, Ga., is facing a federal discrimination lawsuit from a former teacher whose employment was terminated in 2014 after the school found that he would be legally marrying his same-sex partner. “The argument being made in this suit—that a Catholic school’s commitment to upholding Catholic teaching on marriage is discriminatory toward homosexual employees—is a grave threat to Catholic education,” said Patrick Reilly, president of The Cardinal Newman Society. “A Catholic school exists for the very purpose of teaching the faith and forming young people for God,” he continued. “The implication is that our religion itself, rooted...

Independents are evenly split at 32 percent for each party, with 36 percent undecided. Among McLaughlin’s major findings is that a majority of Americans continue to disapprove of the job...

    People should not be too hasty in criticizing President Barack Obama's new policy of privatizing the rescue of Americans held hostage by terrorists. It can't be much worse than Obama's sorry record when it comes to freeing Americans who have been kidnapped, captured, imprisoned and killed by Islamist terrorists under his weak, passive and confused leadership. After all, Secretary of State John Kerry is negotiating a nuclear weapons agreement with Iran, the leading terrorist state in the world, which also has imprisoned three Americans on trumped-up charges. A Ronald Reagan would have demanded their release even before anyone sat down...

In legal filings in federal court, attorney Douglas Drury who represents Christ tells Judge Steven Logan that he should dismiss the lawsuit filed on behalf of abortion providers and doctors because the case is not “ripe” for consideration. “Plaintiffs and their patients have not suffered any injury in fact,” Drury wrote. That same argument is being made by the Attorney General’s Office representing the Arizona Medical Board, the agency that...

Circuit Judge Charles Dodson on Thursday sided with lawyers representing a Gainesville clinic challenging the law. The law took effect on July 1 despite the lawsuit. Lawyers representing the clinic argued the new law is causing "irreparable harm." They said 14 women were unable to obtain abortions at the Gainesville clinic the first day the law was on the books. Lawyers for the state argued there is no need for an injunction and said the new requirement...

    avid Brooks has some surprising advice for social conservatives: Fight the culture war. No, not culture war oriented around sexuality. The other culture war. Brooks admits he’s to the left of most social conservatives. Yet he describes himself as a “friend and admirer,” and offers us a different course from either Rod Dreher’s Benedict Option or Robert George’s principled rejection and resistance. Brooks’s advice is to put aside the culture war oriented around the sexual revolution. It’s alienated large swaths of the American people, been a “communications disaster,” and is, in the near term, “destined to lose.” Instead, Brooks suggests...

As word of the bitings spread, so, too, did the bitings. They swept through other convents all the way to Rome. In July of 1518, people in Strasbourg, then part of the Holy Roman Empire, began dancing. It started with Frau Troffea. Others began to join in, and soon there were 400 dancers. Some died as a result of the nonstop dancing that went on for a month. They could not stop....

    Job gains stayed healthy in June and the unemployment rate hit a seven-year low, but workforce participation skidded and wage growth remained anemic, muddling views of the labor market for a central bank seeking clarity. Employers added 223,000 jobs, the Labor Department said Thursday, about as many as economists had forecast, and the jobless rate fell to 5.3% from 5.5%. The number of people working part-time because they can't find full-time work fell, as did the number of long-term unemployed. But 432,000 people left the workforce, and the labor force participation rate fell to 62.6%, the lowest since 1977. Wage...

    Saudi Arabia is poised to break records for oil production this summer, analysts said, as domestic-energy needs soar during its scorching summer and the holy month of Ramadan and threaten its ability to ramp up exports. Saudi Arabia has said it produced a near-record 10.3 million barrels a day in May, a mark that industry observers said could increase to 11 million barrels this summer as air-conditioning use increases with temperatures reaching 110 degrees Fahrenheit. The country has the ability to produce 12.3 million barrels a day for 90 days, but it has never pumped this much. Saudi output averaged...

    Six weeks after a gunfight among motorcycle gangs and police left nine dead in Waco, Texas, more than 170 people still face serious charges even though just a handful remain jailed, reflecting what some defense lawyers say is an overzealous approach by authorities. Lawyers for some of those arrested in the May 17 shooting say their clients—including military veterans, municipal employees and a man who says he doesn’t even own a motorcycle—were bystanders who played no role in the violence at the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco, but were nonetheless forced to spend weeks behind bars. As of June 30,...

    Indiana will not comply with President Barack Obama's plan to battle climate change by requiring reductions in emissions from coal-fired power plants, Republican Gov. Mike Pence said Wednesday. The proposal as currently written, known as the Clean Power Plan, will make Indiana electricity more expensive and less reliable and hurt economic growth in Indiana and across the nation, Pence wrote in a letter to Obama. The plan targets pollution from the coal-fired power plants that Indiana relies on. Pence said the Indiana coal industry employs more than 26,000 people. "If your administration proceeds to finalize the Clean Power Plan, and...

    FULL TITLE: Left-wing mayor of Madrid plans to rename Plaza currently dedicated to Margaret Thatcher after Socialist gay rights activist Spain's Left-wing Mayor has said she is planning to rename a Plaza currently dedicated to Margaret Thatcher after a former Socialist Party leader and gay rights activist. Manuela Carmena, who took over from Madrid's former conservative mayor in May, said Thatcher's name was inappropriate because she was 'the Iron Lady who enslaved the workers'. Her announcement comes just ten months after Mark Thatcher was invited to the Spanish capital to name the plaza after his mother and the former British...

    Bright spots in the Obama economy are few and far between, as opportunities for small businesses and entrepreneurs are often quashed by a federal government that has grown too large, powerful and pervasive. That’s why it’s telling that the president is scheduled to be in La Crosse, Wis., this week for an event focusing on the economy. To be sure, Wisconsin’s economy has enjoyed a dramatic recovery over the last few years. But our fortunes have improved in spite of – not because of – the president’s big-government policies. Reforming our bloated federal government is essential to revitalizing our nation’s...
