Economic Illiteracy, Summit Smackdown, Fighting For Faith

by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: Economic Illiteracy - We told you recently about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's difficulty comprehending the unemployment rate. She claimed it was low because so many people were working two jobs. The left-leaning site PolitiFact rated her claim not just false, but "Pants On Fire!"

Unfortunately, others on the left are just as confused. Sen. Elizabeth Warren doubled down, telling MSNBC that Americans are working "two, three, or four jobs to try to pay the rent and keep food on the table."

The left is going to find it hard to make the class warfare argument when virtually every economic class and statistic is showing improvement. But they are trying.

And if you want even more examples of left-wing economic illiteracy, check out this video of Rep. Keith Ellison, deputy chairman of the Democrat National Committee, explaining why national borders create "injustice" because illegal immigrants can't unionize.
Seriously, my friends, you can't make this stuff up!

Summit Smackdown - White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced yesterday that administration officials are communicating with Russian leaders about a follow-up summit this fall in Washington, D.C. Needless to say, the left-wing media went nuts.

What other president would have the courage to do that after the fallout from the Helsinki Summit? Donald Trump is fearless and a natural fighter.

Throughout the campaign and much of his presidency, we were told that Trump was stupid and erratic, and would get us into a nuclear war. (We heard the same things about Ronald Reagan too.) Now they are attacking Trump because he is trying "too hard" to make peace.

Rush Limbaugh asked a key question yesterday. He noted that Trump's critics keep saying it was outrageous that he did not confront Vladimir Putin during the Helsinki press conference. They have no idea what he said behind closed doors.

But can any of the critics name the date and place of any summit when a U.S. president attacked a foreign leader with whom he was trying to negotiate? They can't because summits aren't meant for smackdowns, but diplomacy.

The left-wing media keeps saying that Trump won't follow the rules. But it is the left that is constantly changing the rules, moving the goal posts and demanding something that has never happened.

Fighting For Faith - Yesterday, the House of Representatives passed an appropriations bill on a narrow vote of 217 to 199. Tucked inside that bill is legislation that effectively guts the Johnson Amendment, thereby allowing pastors to speak freely from the pulpit about public policy without fear of the IRS.

To give you some idea of why this legislation is necessary, just consider what happened recently to Catholic bishops in Texas.

They were sued by abortionists challenging a state law requiring that abortionists respectfully dispose of the bodies of aborted babies. The Texas Conference of Catholic Bishops had offered to provide "free or low-cost burials."

In their legal challenge to the law, the abortionists demanded all the bishops' documents and communications regarding abortion, miscarriages, the law and any communications with Texas officials and legislators in the past two years. Incredibly, a left-wing judge ordered the bishops to comply.

Thankfully, a panel of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2-to-1 that the lower court judge had violated the First Amendment rights of the Texas bishops. Judge Jim Ho wrote, "It is hard to imagine a better example of how far we have strayed from the text and original understanding of the Constitution than this case."

This isn't the first time religious leaders in Texas have been threatened by leftist politicians and activists for speaking out on matters of faith and public policy.

My friends, there is no question that religious freedom is under fire from the left.

Thankfully, President Trump and his Senate allies are making tremendous progress appointing conservative judges to the courts. In fact, they have set a record. But there are still many more vacancies to fill.

We must expand our majority in the Senate this year in order to confirm Trump's judges and defend religious liberty!
