Michael Medved: Jerusalem’s Anniversary: Time to Face the Truth

Opioid

This June marks the 50th anniversary of the re-unification of Jerusalem following Israel’s victory in the Six Day War.

Many Americans mistakenly believe that only then, in 1967, did Jerusalem become Israel’s capital with a clear Jewish majority. But it has always been the seat of Israel’s parliament; two-thirds of the city’s population was already Jewish at the time of Israeli independence in 1948.

In fact, Jews constituted Jerusalem’s largest religious group as early as the mid-nineteenth century and the city served as the Judean capital for a thousand years from the King David to the Roman dispersion. Meanwhile, Jerusalem has never been a Palestinian Arab capital: between 1948 and 1967, Arab forces occupied a small portion of the city, but the nation of Jordan, not any Palestinian entity, controlled that territory. This year’s 50th anniversary is a good occasion to come to terms with the true history of the holy city.

Albert Mohler: The Unraveling

Billy Graham

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo recently wrote a letter to the state’s medical insurers saying that they will now be required to provide coverage for reproductive infertility to single persons and same-sex couples.

The move was celebrated by Leftists and progressives as a win for the decoupling of reproduction and the traditional family.

Bella DePaulo, an advocate cited by the New York Magazine, said the change is part “of the long unraveling of the components that all used to be tied up in the one package of marriage: sex, having children, living together.”

Now note carefully. Here she is celebrating the taking apart of what had previously throughout human history, unquestionably, belonged together.

Those things are now unraveling, she says, and that’s progress. She said, “the whole bundle is coming undone.”

And at this point, even though we lament what she celebrates, we have to acknowledge, she is exactly right.

Lanhee Chen: Tax Reform Is Long Overdue

Tax Reform

President Trump introduced a significant tax reform proposal that will dramatically lower the business tax rate, simplify the individual tax code, and cut tax rates for many American taxpayers.

While there are still many details to be filled in, the basic contours of and principles underlying Trump’s reform plan are worth supporting.

We haven’t seen an overhaul of our tax code for over thirty years, since Ronald Reagan was president and such major change is long overdue.  And why do we need reform?  To put it simply, our tax rates are too high, the tax code is too complicated, and we have a system that disincentivizes growth and investment, two things our economy desperately needs.

The next few months will bring a lot of back-and-forth and much politicking over the president’s proposed changes to the tax code.  But Republicans and Democrats should agree that our tax system needs to be improved and modernized.  It will help American businesses compete, and American families do better.
