Prayers for this family

Utah Republican Rep. Chris Stewart announced that he will resign from Congress before the end of the year to take care of his wife Evie, who is ill. Under state law, the Governor has to call a special election to replace Stewart. It’s not clear when that will be. Even though a Republican is heavily favored in that district, until another one is elected, the GOP House majority will be reduced to only four votes. But the most important part of this story isn’t the politics but the fact that his wife is ill enough that he feels the need to resign to take care of her, so please keep them and their children in your prayers.

U.S. Border Chief to retire

U.S. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz, who manages 20,000 Border Patrol agents, announced that he is retiring effective June 30th. Ortiz has been vocal about the DHS not having operational control of the border, and testified to that in Congress. DHS Secretary Antony Majorkas praised Ortiz and thanked him for postponing his retirement several times over the past couple of years, which I’m sure must’ve been difficult, considering the circumstances. No word on who will replace him, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Majorkas tried to save money by hiring an illegal immigrant.

Supreme Court rules that Reddit is not liable

Tuesday, the Supreme Court left in place a lower court ruling that the website Reddit was not legally liable for child pornography posted by users, under Section 240 of the Communications Decency Act that shields platforms from liability for posts by third parties. The SCOTUS found that the plaintiffs, who were victims of child pornography, did not accuse Reddit of actively engaging in sex trafficking or draw any direct connection between those posts and its revenue, other than the fact that it makes money from ads on all its pages. This wasn’t unexpected in light of recent rulings finding Google and Twitter not liable for damages to victims of terrorists who left posts on their platforms.

The spiritual side of our lives really does matter

When I was growing up, my bedtime ritual always included a fairy tale that started with “Once upon a time...” and ended with the comforting words we all remember: “And they lived happily ever after.” As a child of the optimistic 1950s, I dreamed that life might be like that: whatever obstacles, dangers or perils might come my way, in the end, I would live happily ever after.

Why Art and Music Are Essential in Schools

Aside from letting leftist indoctrination take over our public school system, the biggest mistake we conservatives made in education over the years was in thinking that art and music classes were expendable luxuries and should be slashed to concentrate on “the three ‘R’s.” Not only are art and music classes important in themselves, but they are also beneficial to helping students excel in other subjects, including math and reading. 


A blank book of pages

The first school in which we enroll, and the most important in shaping our future, is our home. A casual view of modern TV shows might lead us to believe that parents don’t matter. I contend that nothing matters more. When Benjamin West was a boy, his mother left him in charge of his younger sister, Sally. Benjamin found bottles of colored ink and painted Sally’s portrait. 


How to prevent young people from falling prey to socialism

I got a comment from a reader arguing that one reason young people fall prey to socialism (aside from being brainwashed by their teachers) is that they feel the capitalist system is failing them. They were told they had to get college degrees if they wanted good jobs, and encouraged to take out huge student loans. Now, they’re saddled with crippling debt, and those degrees aren’t opening the doors to jobs that pay enough to ever get out of the hole.
