(CNN)A series of federal executions that were set to begin on Monday will remain on hold, the Supreme Court said on Friday. The court's order is a loss for the Trump administration, which announced last July that it would reinstate the federal death penalty after a nearly two-decade lapse. The Supreme Court denied the government's request to wipe away a lower court opinion that held inmates were likely to succeed in their argument that the new protocol conflicted with federal law. In Friday's brief order, the Supreme Court said it expects that the lower court will work with "appropriate dispatch" to issue a final opinion in the case. Justices Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh wrote separately to say they agreed with the court's decision but that they thought the lower court should be able to decide the case within the next 60 days.

Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com A federal court in Canada has ruled that the self-titled "Church of Atheism" isn't a religion and can't be treated like one for tax purposes. The Court of Appeal upheld the refusal by the minister of national revenue to register the Church of Atheism of Central Canada as a charity, even though it claimed to have a minister and sacred text called the "Ten Commandments of Energy," where they practiced their "doctrine of mainstream science." The court said the organization failed to demonstrate the necessary elements of a belief system. "[W]e believe…that our Ten Commandments of Energy are sacred texts because they were created by a wise human being who consists of pure, invisible Energy and has acknowledged Energy’s existence," the church argued, according to court documents.

Through quiet negotiations and a change in tactics, Donald Trump was able to accomplish something that, in three years, Barack Obama never could: the release of an American aid worker who was imprisoned in Cairo for three years. The worker, Aya Hijazi, flew home with her husband on an American aircraft Thursday night and went straight to the Oval Office the next morning to thank the president herself.(Photo: JIM WATSON/AFP/Getty Images) The White House downplayed Hijazi’s return so as not to embarrass the Egyptians, a prideful people. Though she was at the White House Friday, there was no public ceremony or remarks — just a flash of cameras in the Oval Office before reporters were quickly whisked out of the room. Press secretary Sean Spicer kept his comments to a minimum when he briefed reporters later. In a dramatic break with the last eight years, Trump invited Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi to the White House within the first 100 days of his presidency. The … [Read more...] about Obama Could Never Get An American Aid Worker Released. Through Quiet Negotiation And A Change In Tactic, Trump Freed Her
close Video November jobs report shows 266K new jobs added Unemployment rate drops to 3.5 percent; Fox Biz Flash: 12/6. Under President Trump, we’ve seen the labor markets reach incredible heights. The good news for American workers is that the growth in jobs and wages isn’t coming to an end any time soon. Although I have to admit that I never tire of the “beat expectations” admissions that seem to come out after every new economic report, you have to wonder what it will take for liberals to finally acknowledge an economic boom that’s improving the lives of all Americans. The November jobs report should be more than enough to dispel the pessimism that anti-Trump “experts” constantly sow through the media. The American economy added 266,000 new jobs in November, sending the unemployment rate to a 50-year low of 3.5 percent. US JOB GROWTH ROARS BACK IN NOVEMBER, WITH 266,000 ADDED The results blew past expectations. … [Read more...] about Andy Puzder: Big jobs numbers — What will it take for liberals to admit an economic boom?
