Tiger Woods suffered what could be career-ending leg injuries following a horrific car crash in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. — a stunning incident that dominated the news cycle Tuesday, on a level not seen since last January’s fatal helicopter crash in California that included NBA great Kobe Bryant and his daughter among its victims. Even on a day when COVID-19 deaths continued to climb beyond a half-million Americans and when Congress held hearings about what went wrong in the fatal Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, the public's fascination with all things celebrity once again ruled the airwaves.

The U.S. Bishops’ Conference (USCCB) has again voiced its opposition to the Equality Act, warning it would “discriminate against people of faith” and “inflict numerous legal and social harms on Americans.” In a strongly worded letter to the U.S. Congress, the bishops assert the Equality Act would impose “novel and divisive viewpoints regarding ‘gender’ on individuals and organizations” while “dismissing sexual difference and falsely presenting ‘gender’ as only a social construct.” The Feb. 23 letter, signed by five leaders of the USCCB, notes sex and gender “can be distinguished but not separated,” while denouncing underlying “ideologies that attempt to sunder what are inseparable aspects of reality.” “Rather than affirm human dignity in ways that meaningfully exceed existing practical protections, the Equality Act would discriminate against people of faith,” they insist. Because of its abolition of real sexual differences in favor of subjective “gender identities,” the … [Read more...] about U.S. Bishops Warn Equality Act Tramples ‘Precious Rights to Life and Conscience’

House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy has a fresh spring in his step after the Republicans defied the odds and professional political prognosticators by picking up 15 seats in the 2020 congressional elections. McCarthy, who has his eyes on the majority in November 2022, approached the 2020 congressional elections differently than Republicans in recent history have traditionally targeted congressional electoral efforts, and his moves paid off—and not only infuriated but befuddled the beltway pundit class. For the first time since 1994, in 2020 no GOP incumbent running for reelection lost. Meanwhile, McCarthy blew away fundraising records previously set by former House Speaker Paul Ryan—astonishing since he did it from the minority. Usually, House political leaders do better raising money from the majority. That’s not to mention the most significant development which is a freshman class entering Congress in 2021 that represents perhaps the most diverse in party history with the most … [Read more...] about Exclusive: After 2020 Gains, Kevin McCarthy Eyes House GOP Majority, Speaker’s Gavel in Midterms
