Reversal of Dobbs Case will Save Lives
- By Alveda King
Roe is no more! The Supreme Court justices' reversal of Roe v Wade with the critical Dobbs decision today is a victory for civil rights for the unborn. Sending the discussion of life vs abortion back to the states will help "we the people" on the state level grow to ensure that every unborn baby has the civil right to LIFE. Human dignity begins in the womb!

Today the new civil rights struggle of our time is for "womb equality" and the right to life for the unborn children who are aborted each year. This premise asserts that while we are not colorblind, we see and value the gifts of ethnic diversity. We see every human, born and pre-born, as created in the image and likeness of GOD. All pre-born children should first be given the chance to be born and live flourishing human lives.

The Inconvenient Truth About COVID-19 Relief Scandals
- By Veronique de Rugy
Raise your hand if you're surprised that the trillions of dollars spent on COVID-19 relief gave way to billions of dollars in government waste, fraud and abuses. I'm not, but based on recent reporting, you might think this type of carelessness with taxpayers' money has never before happened. Sadly, such waste and fraud are normal byproducts of most government programs.
Too much focus on waste and fraud misses a more important problem: Lots of the COVID-19 spending that doesn't qualify as wasteful or fraudulent was nonetheless misspent.

Promises Made. Promises Kept.
- By Erick Erickson
I operate a small business. While my day job is as a radio host for one of the most-listened-to talk stations in the country, I have my own business that takes that program and distributes it nationally. I have several people who work for me. I have a daily subscription-based email and ads on my show that generate the revenue to meet payroll, satellite expenses, etc.
I had previously given my employees cost-of-living increases because of inflation. The employees who cannot work from home and must commute will today find some extra money in their check to help with gas costs. Everyone else gets to work from home.

Biden's Budget Deficit Victory Lap Is Unearned and Unjustified
- By Veronique de Rugy
President Joe Biden is taking victory laps for last year's reduced budget deficit. No one would be happier than me to see this number fall in a significant way. But the decline has nothing to do with the president's policies, and it changes little about the dangers of our fiscal situation.
According to monthly reporting by the Treasury Department, we know the budget deficit for May was $66 billion. So far, the deficit for the 2022 fiscal year is $426 billion. With four months left, this year's deficit will indeed be significantly lower than last year's, which was nearly $2.8 trillion. There's nothing like $5 trillion in COVID-19-relief spending paid for with borrowed cash to balloon a deficit!

Rash Optimism on Social Security's Solvency
- By Veronique de Rugy
Don't worry if you get confused reading accounts of the new Social Security Trustees Report. On one hand, you have some articles reporting that this document shows that Social Security will be insolvent in less than 15 years. Others prompt you to pop Champagne corks in celebration of Social Security's financial footing being so strong that we can supposedly increase benefits.
But, of course, both can't be true.

The Trouble With Do-Somethingism on Guns
- By David Harsanyi
Before we even knew how the killer of 19 children and two adults at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, had obtained his guns, Sen. Chris Murphy was engaging in his customary performative emotionalism on the Senate floor, literally begging Republicans to "compromise."
Compromise on what exactly? Murphy has never once offered a single proposal that would have deterred any of these mass shooters. Literally minutes after his routine, Murphy was asked about the obvious mental illness prevalent among most of these shooters. "Spare me the bulls--- about mental illness," the Connecticut senator responded, "ripping" the GOP. "We don't have any more mental illness than any other country in the world." That's how serious he is about compromise.

How To Reflect America
- By Anne Schlafly Cori
What is "diversity"? Everyday, I read about companies and schools bragging about the "diversity" of their employees and students, but this "diversity" is usually based on only a few superficial characteristics.
After a recent interview by a reporter from National Public Radio, I received the following email: "NPR is trying to do a better job reflecting America. When you have a sec, could you send me the following:
