John Eastman: Trump Did Not Obstruct Justice; Loretta Lynch Did

obstruct justice, Bryant

Law professor John Eastman joined the Larry Elder Show to discuss the hearings involving Russia, former FBI Director James Comey, and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch. He argues that Trump did not obstruct justice when he expressed his view to Comey that he hoped the investigation into Michael Flynn would not have to continue, but that Lynch obstructed justice when she demanded that Comey refer to the Hillary Clinton investigation as a “matter.”

Michael Medved: Jerusalem Unified

Opioid

This month—June 2017—marks the 50th anniversary of the unification of Jerusalem as the undivided, eternal capital of the Jewish people. What was the city’s status before Israeli victory in 1967’s Six Day War? At that time, Eastern Jerusalem and the Old City were occupied by Jordan; all Jewish residents had been either killed or driven out, and even Jewish tourists were banned from ancient holy places like the Western Wall.

The UN Partition Plan of 1947 had called for international status for all of Jerusalem, but the Arabs rejected the plan and destroyed 58 synagogues in the ancient Jewish Quarter. UN control of Jerusalem was supposed to last only 10 years, when residents would vote to decide the city’s permanent status. Since Jerusalem’s population was two-thirds Jewish in 1947, and remains so today, the Holy City would have ended up as the undivided capital of the Jewish state of Israel, even under the UN’s original plans.

Albert Mohler: Remembering Midway

Billy Graham

We have just recently marked the 75th anniversary of one of the most significant events in all of naval history: the Battle of Midway.

What’s most important about this battle is that it came just six months after the Japanese sneak attack upon Pearl Harbor. The United States Navy largely defeated the Japanese Navy by turning the tables, and the fact that it did so within just six months is one of the most amazing stories of military history.

U.S. Naval intelligence, having intercepted and broken the Japanese code, knew where the Japanese Navy was headed and knew that they were trying to lure the Americans into a trap. The U.S. Navy took decisive action, and rather than the Japanese surprising the American Navy, it was the U.S. Navy that surprised the Imperial Japanese forces.

Fewer and fewer of those battle veterans are alive today, but our indebtedness still goes to the United States Navy and what took place in the Battle of Midway 75 years ago.

Michael Medved: Miraculous Victory, Unsettled Dispute

Opioid

Fifty years ago, the 19-year-old state of Israel won a miraculous, astonishing victory against larger, better equipped forces of Egypt, Syria and Jordan.

The Soviet Union lavishly supported the Arab states, while Lyndon Johnson’s America proclaimed strict neutrality as the Jewish state faced annihilation. Israel had to rely on Mirage jets purchased from France, since American equipment was unavailable. Territorial disputes played little role in the war since the Arabs wouldn’t accept Israel within any borders, openly pledging to “drive the Jews into the sea.” Shortly after the war, Israel offered to trade captured territory for peace but the Arab League responded with the famous “three no’s of the Khartoum Conference”: no peace, no recognition, no negotiation with Israel.

Today, the key issue remains the same as 50 years ago: refusal by much of the Arab world to accept a Jewish state under any conditions, within any boundaries, on the site of the ancient Jewish homeland.

Michael Medved: The Left’s International Collapse

Opioid

If Theresa May wins her expected victory in June’s British elections it will represent the latest evidence of a sweeping international trend: the utter collapse of the old left.

Britain’s Labour Party dominated the United Kingdom for 13 years under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, but with radical leader Jeremy Corbin, it’s struggled for traction and relevance. The same thing happened in France, where the candidate of the long-dominant Socialists finished a dismal 5th in recent elections.

In Germany, center right Chancellor Angela Merkel has already ruled for 12 years and is heavily favored to capture another term in September. And in Israel, the leftist Labor Party that held power for the nation’s first 29 years, now commands only 16 percent of their Parliament; Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu faces more formidable competition from fellow leaders on the right.

In America, as Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and other hard-liners drag Democrats leftward, the nation’s oldest political party faces much the same fate.

Albert Mohler: A New Rule Respecting Conscience

Billy Graham

A long-awaited announcement from the Trump administration was released last week: namely, the reversal of the Obamacare contraception mandate, the mandate that required all employers, even religious employers, to pay for contraception methods, including abortion-inducing drugs.

The latest from President Trump’s Office of Management and Budget only deals with explicitly religious employers. The vast majority of employers will still be under the Obamacare contraception mandate.

What we see here is the inevitable collision between sexual liberty and America’s first freedom, religious liberty. There are those who are so absolutely committed to sexual liberty that they are quite willing to violate the religious liberties of others.

As we have known now for a number of years, we don’t have to look out there into the future and argue just how long it will be before we see that collision between sexual liberty and religious liberty. It’s already happened. That collision is a story that’s already here.

The new rule from the Trump administration ought to be applauded.
