Jerry Bowyer: A New Voice at the Fed

With economic commentator Steve Moore out of the running for Fed, President Trump has turned to another option, announcing his intent to appoint economist Judy Shelton.

Dr. Shelton is a superb choice.

Years ago, Shelton was one of the very few analysts to predict the fall of the Soviet Union long before it happened. Her conservative commitments are rock solid, having directed the Sound Money Project at the Atlas Foundation. Just last year she was successful in getting Senate confirmation as the U.S. director of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, so she’s already been thoroughly vetted—and would likely prevail in the confirmation process.

The stakes for the global economy have never been higher. We need a new voice at the Fed who can be a solid vote for the protection of monetary stability and who can handle herself at the table with the big boys.

Judy Shelton will do well. She should be confirmed.

Albert Mohler: The U.S. Is an Outlier on Abortion

On the issue of abortion, the United States is an outlier on the world stage—even when it comes to the notoriously liberal countries of Western Europe.

This point was recently illustrated in an article in the New York Times.

The headline: “German Doctors Fined for Abortion Ad.”

Doctors there may list professionally that they perform abortions, but they may not positively advertise how they do the procedure nor can they advertise in a commercial context.

One sentence in the article demands our attention: “Abortion is legal in Germany through the first 12 weeks of a pregnancy.”

Twelve weeks.

Remember: In the state of New York that number was increased by all moral effects to 40—40 weeks of a pregnancy.

What we need to note here is that the United States is a genuine outlier. It became an outlier in 1973 in the Roe v. Wade decision.

It’s even more an outlier now.

Hugh Hewitt: Echoes of Jefferson and Madison

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently hosted the nation’s second annual Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom.

From China to Iran to Burma and beyond, the forces of anti-religious pluralism are ascendant in many places across the globe. And yes: The struggle for religious freedom is ongoing even here.

The Ministerial will be an enduring mark of Pompeo’s tenure at Foggy Bottom. This, along with his new Commission on Unalienable Rights will continue to focus the agenda of liberties owed to every individual by virtue of their existence—primary among them being the right to exercise religious beliefs freely and without interference from the state.

On my program recently, Pompeo argued, quote: “Nations become stronger when they permit their citizens to exercise their core beliefs about who they really are.”

He’s echoing Jefferson and Madison—and deserves a hearty recommendation for doing so in our age of cynicism.
