Our children are leading us—hallelujah!
1/17/2020 11:10:29 AM

By Marian Wright Edelman   In December Time magazine named then-16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg their 2019 Person of the Year—the youngest person ever honored. Time noted that this brave, determined teenager represents a new wave of young people who refuse to accept the world adults have created for them: “Her global climate strike is the largest and most international of all the youth movements, but it’s hardly the only one: teenagers in the U.S. are organizing against gun violence and flocking to progressive candidates; students in...

Experts predicted trade recession in 2016 if Trump won, instead the opposite happened
1/17/2020 11:07:03 AM

By Robert Romano   Remember Smoot-Hawley. That was the rallying cry of #NeverTrump all throughout 2016, that if elected, President Donald Trump would levy tariffs and the world would fall into recession, or maybe even another Great Depression. Because the Smoot-Hawley tariffs were the cause of the Great Depression, or so the thinking goes. I’d say it was the strong dollar that made a bad recession worse in the 1930s, but that’s another argument. The question is what impact Trump’s tariffs had on the real economy versus the expectations of the punditry...

To one it’s Monday to another it’s Wednesday
1/17/2020 10:59:41 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   Time goes so fast at times that I do not always remember what day it is. I get so busy trying to get my work done that I forget if it’s Monday or Friday. It is a good thing I am getting older because I have a built-in excuse for forgetting what day it is. Recently, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I spent some time in St. Augustine for some vacation days. We don’t often get to have vacation days, but when we do, we try to enjoy it. Just down a few blocks from our motel is a place we love dinning. It’s called the...

Everyone should denounce political violence
1/14/2020 4:01:41 PM

FAIRFAX, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following statement urging members of Congress and candidates for President to join with President Donald Trump in denouncing all political violence: “While the nation grieves the senseless loss of life in El Paso and Dayton, President Donald Trump has rightly denounced the racist, white nationalist attack in El Paso and the attack in Dayton by a radical, pro-Antifa leftist who thought his political opponents were Nazis who deserved to die. There is nothing controversial about denouncing...

Pension Crisis: Grassley, Alexander seek to tackle forecasted union pension collapse
1/14/2020 4:00:32 PM

By Rick Manning   Our nation’s pension systems are in trouble.  Underfunded with outsized promises to beneficiaries who are living longer, the death rattles of the defined benefit pension system, which promises a fixed amount of money per month for retirees, are now audible. There are many facets of this problem and I will focus upon the four distinct groups of defined benefit plan beneficiaries. Note those who have their retirement funds in 401(k) accounts are not included in this discussion because the pension payments for those are dependent upon the amount...

Oh, those alluring lizardly eyes
1/14/2020 3:58:01 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   After months of planning and rearranging our schedule, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage finally organized a little vacation time for Christmas. It takes an awful lot of work for her and, I let her work as hard as she wants to work. That’s the kinda husband I am. She scheduled us to stay for several days in St. Augustine. We always enjoy our stay there and look forward to going there. The people who own the motel where we stay are good friends of ours. It is great to get together with friends that you only see once a year. Being...

The Democrats’ scarlet letter strategy
1/2/2020 12:47:33 PM

By Mel Gurtov House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has evidently decided not to turn over the articles of impeachment to the Senate until Congress resumes its work January 7. Some observers think that’s a mistake that will cost Democrats on Election Day. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell seems to think so too, believing the longer the Democrats hold out, the more vindictive, uncooperative, even “unconstitutional” they will appear to voters. McConnell says he’s “fine” about Pelosi’s strategy, since it gives him a pass on having to make difficult...

The Senate should just proceed to the impeachment trial whether House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is ready or not
1/2/2020 12:46:28 PM

By Robert Romano   Does House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have a heretofore unnoticed, unconstitutional power to hold up an impeachment that has already been voted on? That appears to be what she wants the American people to believe. That, articles of impeachment passed by the House, including H. Res. 755 that impeached President Donald Trump, are not actually “passed” unless and until she transmits it to the Senate. The Speaker of House of Representatives—a constitutional office in Article I of the Constitution—cannot unilaterally defy the...

Fair and reciprocal trade will be President Trump’s legacy as economy continues to boom
1/2/2020 12:35:13 PM

By Rick Manning   As we embark upon 2020, with the third year of Donald Trump’s presidency in the can, the American economy is as good as it has been in at least 70 years, and after what many economists predicted would be a mid-year downturn, 2019 has turned into a boon year for all Americans. Three economic drivers over the past year will be examined, the labor market, American consumer spending power and the state of international trade as the first two directly reflect the economic situation over the year and the latter sets the stage for the economic environment...

The greatest gift this Holy Season
12/27/2019 2:52:15 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   This is a holy season for multiple faiths and with our celebrations many of us spend time, money, and energy searching for perfect presents rather than reflecting on what our faith requires of us. It’s wonderful to share special times and gifts with family and friends but too many of us get overwhelmed by shopping for material things for loved ones. I hope parents, grandparents, and all of us will pause and ensure we give our young and each other more important gifts of time, attention, and family...
