Lanhee Chen: Swooning Over a Brutal, Murderous Regime

Tax Reform

Liberal media outlets are swooning over North Korea’s “sports diplomacy” at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. They’ve even suggested that somehow the North Koreans have outmaneuvered the Trump Administration in the diplomatic arena.

 

Such assertions are ridiculous. Vice President Pence, representing our country at the Olympics, did the right thing by continuing to shine a light on the threat that North Korea poses to our allies in Asia and to the United States. We cannot be lulled into a sense of complacency.  The North Korean regime remains committed to developing nuclear weapons that can reach the American homeland; their rhetoric continues to be sharply hostile to America and American interests around the world; and they continue to commit human rights abuses and atrocities against their own citizens.

 

If the North Koreans are serious about improving relations with South Korea and de-escalating the tensions that have gripped the Korean Peninsula, it will take more than sending a cheerleading squad to the Olympics.

 

We should all enjoy the games. But we should not be fooled.

David Davenport: Not All Free Speech Is Constitutionally Protected

Compromise

NFL players kneeling to protest the national anthem isn’t going away. Two owners say their players must stand; now the Commissioner wants a rule requiring all NFL players to stand. Vice President Pence famously walked out on the protest.

But here’s one thing you should know that many don’t: Even though the phrase free speech is thrown around, the players have no constitutionally protected right to protest the anthem.

The First Amendment prohibits the government from limiting free speech, not a football team. In fact, sports teams are businesses and their leagues may regulate all kinds of things, from tucking in your shirt to what patches you wear. If there is any legal angle here, it is a matter of labor negotiations between the players’ union and management or the League. But it’s not a matter of constitutional law under the First Amendment.

Sadly our society knows so little about the Constitution, but this teachable moment is about free speech.

Albert Mohler: A Revealing Walkout

Billy Graham

Students at the University of Notre Dame recently staged a walk out protest against Vice President Mike Pence who was the university’s commencement speaker.

One young man interviewed about the protest looked squarely into the camera and said, “Commencement is about us. It’s not about national politics. This is a distraction.”

Well, this is a profound misunderstanding of the commencement ceremony and it’s also a reflection of the incredible narcissism that seems now to affect so many at various age levels in American society.

The commencement is actually a celebration of learning and the dignity of education. It’s about achievement, yes, but it’s also about promise. It’s about obligation and responsibility on the part of the graduates even as they depart the campus of the university or other institutions of higher education and pursue their callings in life.

But that statement, “It’s about us,” when it comes to commencement is very revealing. It tells us a great deal about a fundamental moral shift that has taken place in this country.

Owen Strachan: The Marital Scandal Of Vice President Pence

double standard, parental, generosity and respect. Vice President Pence

Somehow this became another of the major scandals in DC today: Vice President Pence protects his marriage. Recently, the Washington Post reminded readers that the VP does not eat alone with a woman who is not his wife …. and it sparked firestorm on Twitter. One journalist said Pence believes that “women shouldn’t be able to exist in public without a chaperone.” Many such responses followed.

Let’s all take a deep breath in our favorite safe space. Mike Pence has employed and met with many women over his long career of public service. He isn’t anti-woman. He’s pro-woman. He loves his wife, he wants to protect his family, and he wants to protect the women he works with. Mike Pence should be commended for his self-discipline born from his Christian faith.

The weirdest folks in today’s culture aren’t sexually wild; they’re those who hold fast to their spouse. If that lands you in the penalty box, so be it.

Honor and fidelity will always be more important than Millennial hot-takes on social media.

Left Mocks Mike Pence for Guardrails Protecting His Marriage

VP Mike Pence

Maggie Gallagher explains “For the last ten hours, I’ve been fighting off liberals on my Twitter account outraged that Mike Pence tries to protect his marriage by not dining with women alone. They have this theory that it somehow disadvantages his women employees. I’m guessing in reality the women who work for him are grateful to have a boss who doesn’t hit on them. It’s not that hard to leave a door open or invite a colleague in” (National Pulse).  From Katie Pavlich: Men in general, but especially powerful men in public positions, should respect and learn from Pence’s boundaries. This doesn’t mean they have to make the same decisions about how to handle professional situations, but understanding why Pence behaves the way he does is helpful with navigation. He has enormous respect for his wife and the women he works with, which is why he chooses not to put any of them into a position that could be perceived as compromising (Townhall).  David French explains why Christian men do this (National Review).  From Mollie Hemmingway: All these people mocking Pence for the protections he puts on his behavior must not know the people I know or suffer the temptations I face. They must not read the headlines about marriages ending due to infidelity. I have far too many friends who found their inhibitions lowered by alcohol and distance from a spouse. The end result of their lapse in judgment has in some cases been the destruction of their marriage (The Federalist). A look at some of the crazy reactions from the left (IJR). From Jonah Goldberg: It’s a very strange place we’ve found ourselves in when elites say we have no right to judge adultery, but we have every right to judge couples who take steps to avoid it (Townhall).
