• Trade, the Supreme Court, Hillary, Anti-Semitism: A Jumble of Encouraging and Disturbing News

    Surge Summary: Some Good News on assorted fronts: Trade deal, Supreme Court; and not so good news about Hillary Clinton for President and anti-Semitism around Bernie Sanders. 

    by Gary Bauer

    • A deal has been reached to advance the USMCA — the Trump Administration’s rework of NAFTA, rebalancing trade between the United States, Mexico and Canada.  This is a big win for the president and for American workers.
    • The Supreme Court has upheld a Kentucky law requiring abortionists to perform ultrasounds on women seeking abortions.  This is a critical win for the pro-life cause as ultrasounds provide a window into the womb, putting the humanity of the unborn child on full display.
    • The Supreme Court also rejected a demand that taxpayers be forced to pay for gender reassignment surgeries for prison inmates.
    • Radical environmentalists and progressive politicians in New York lost a politically motivated attempt to bankrupt Exxon and other energy companies.  The case was dismissed “with prejudice,” meaning it can’t be filed again in New York.
    • Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is cutting the bureaucracy, eliminating 600 jobs at the massive department.
    • Meanwhile, Democrats have a new “frontrunner.”  According to the latest Harvard-Harris poll, Hillary Clinton leads Joe Biden among Democrat primary voters 21% to 20%, followed by Bernie Sanders at 12%.
    • Speaking of Sanders, why is the Vermont socialist attracting so many anti-Semites?  Linda Sarsour is one of his leading surrogates, but the Sanders campaign had to fire a progressive operative just days after he accepted a top position due to anti-Semitic comments.
