Mohler: A Stunning Decision

The Supreme Court recently struck down a Texas abortion law intended to protect women’s health.

The liberal majority on the Court insisted, in the words of the Washington Post, that “Texas’s arguments that the restrictions were meant to protect women’s health were merely cover for making abortions harder to obtain.”

Conservative Justice Samuel Alito counters this in his important dissenting opinion when he points out, “The law was one of many enacted by states in the wake of the Kermit Gosnell scandal in which a physician who ran an abortion clinic in Philadelphia was convicted for the first degree murder of three infants who were born alive and for the manslaughter of a patient.”

Justice Alito is absolutely right. It was in the wake of the tragedy of the Gosnell case that many states did rush to enact restrictions that would prevent similar atrocities from happening in their own states.

The Court struck down laws saying that they had nothing to do with women’s health, when there was a very clear case to be made that women’s health was exactly the issue, if not the only issue.

Medved: Focus Attacks on the Most Vulnerable Democrat

Hillary Clinton is one of the most unpopular politicians in America – with a negative rating of 55 percent according to a recent poll. Donald Trump should focus all criticism on this vulnerable opponent, rather than attacking more popular figures like President Bill Clinton and President Obama.

Though Obama won re-election with 51 percent of the electorate, a higher percentage now express a positive view of the president. The problem with Trump’s charges that Obama secretly sides with Islamic terrorists isn’t just their outrageous, conspiratorial nature but their dubious political impact. Even if Trump managed to hold every one of Romney’s 62 million voters he would still need to persuade some 6 percent of voters who backed Obama twice to switch their allegiance.

It won’t help to launch attacks on a lame duck chief executive enjoying a new burst of popular support, when he could aim more profitably at the weak candidate actually opposing him.

Hewitt: Happy Independence Day

Pepperdine California Democratic Party

It would be very difficult to overstate the significance of the UK’s vote last week to exit the European Union. The very fact that a nation of 65 million people with 40 years plus of membership in the EU has voted to sever ties is nothing short of remarkable.

It was remarkable because, in part, no one saw it coming. The latest polls seemed to give the edge to the “remain” camp.

Nigel Farage of the UKIP, the UK Independence Party, and one of the proponents of exit even conceded early in the evening, only to declare later on that, “dawn is breaking on an independent United Kingdom.” Both Farage and the other big winner of the pro-Brexit side—London’s former Mayor Boris Johnson—have said that the date should be marked as Independence Day.

As we approach our own Independence Day we ought to celebrate a victory for our friends across the pond. For indeed, the Brexit vote is a victory for self-governance … it was a victory for freedom.

So: to all of the friends in our audience and now to all of our friends across the Atlantic: Happy Independence Day.

Kim Strassel, “The Intimidation Game: How the Left Is Silencing Free Speech”

The Wall Street Journal’s Kim Strassel joined The Mike Gallagher Show on Monday to discuss her new book, “The Intimidation Game: How the Left Is Silencing Free Speech.” The Amazon write up about her book: “For nearly 40 years, Washington and much of the American public have held up disclosure and campaign finance laws as ideals, and the path to cleaner and freer elections. This book will show, through first-hand accounts, how both have been hijacked by the Left as weapons against free speech and free association, becoming the most powerful tools of those intent on silencing their political opposition.” Join Mike Gallagher’s premium content website at MikeOnlineGold.com.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/271127920″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
