Hillary Clinton let off the hook

The FBI director scolded Hillary Clinton for her illegal e-mail set-up and her careless handling of classified information.  But then he said that no charges would be filed against her.

“Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information,” he said,  “our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. Prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before deciding whether to bring charges.”  Of course they do.  And one factor for administration prosecutors is that the violator of the statutes is the presumptive Democratic nominee for president.

Trump vs. Clinton on religious liberty

At Donald Trump’s conclave with evangelical leaders, he notably dodged the religious liberty questions.  That’s understandable, since Trump supports the LGTB cause , the source of the current efforts to punish Christians and Christian organizations for holding to their religious beliefs about sexual morality.

But surely Hillary Clinton would be worse than Trump on religious liberty issues, wouldn’t she?  Maggie Gallagher thinks otherwise, after the jump.  She argues that if Clinton is elected, Christians could oppose her from the base of a major political party.  But if Trump is elected, both parties would have abandoned the issues, and Christians would have no political advocates.  Do you agree with her reasoning?

Celebrating our liberties, including those at risk

On this Independence Day, we celebrate our freedoms as Americans. It’s a good exercise to read The Declaration of Independence, and it’s also a good exercise to read the Bill of Rights, the first Ten Amendments to our Constitution, spelling out what those freedoms are.

Read the list of our civil liberties after the jump.  As you do, consider which of these are currently under attack–by our own government, by government-connected organizations such as public universities, and by other entities. [Read more…]

The FBI’s interrogation of Hillary Clinton

The FBI questioned Hillary Clinton for over three hours on Saturday about her private e-mail system and whether or not it put government secrets in jeopardy.  That means the FBI’s investigation is drawing to a close, and we should know soon whether or not the former Secretary of State will be indicted.

Chris Cilizza, who discusses the situation after the jump, notes that she does not have the 2,383 pledged delegates necessary for the Democratic presidential nomination.  She has 2,220, which means she will need the super-delegates to put her over the top.  An indictment would threaten her nomination.  Then again, if she isn’t indicted, that will hurt her politically also.

Christian pharmacists must stock abortifacients

A Christian-owned pharmacy chain refuses to stock “emergency contraception” drugs on the grounds that they cause abortion.  The state of Washington wants to compel the chain to carry the drugs, even though that would violate the owner’s religious beliefs.  The case would seem to be similar to that of Hobby Lobby, which won a ruling from the Supreme Court allowing it to opt out of Obamacare requirements.  But this time the Supreme Court refused to hear the case.  The pharmacies will have to sell the products.

In addition to the pro-life and religious liberty issues, I would think there would be business liberty issues.  Should the government really be able to mandate what products a retailer has to stock? [Read more…]
