Conservative Lawmakers Fight the Swamp

May 30, 2019

Good morning from Washington, where conservatives take heat for foiling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's plot to pass a $19 billion "disaster relief" bill while members are away on recess. Jarrett Stepman singles out who to bless and who to blame. Today's the day Facebook shareholders decide how diverse the social network wants to be, Kevin Mooney reports. Plus: Melanie Israel and Elizabeth Slattery on what the Supreme Court's latest action on abortion means, Michaela Dodge on Russia's apparent nuclear tests, and Romina Boccia on Sen. Kamala Harris' problematic pay scale.

It's not grandstanding for legislators to halt the spending of billions of dollars to come to a better understanding of what such vast sums are actually being used for—and whether they would be better spent elsewhere.
The shareholder resolution calls for the social-networking company to seek "ideological diversity among their board members" that "contemplates differences in political/policy beliefs."
Justice Clarence Thomas notes how an Indiana case "highlights the fact that abortion is an act rife with the potential for eugenic manipulation."
Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., wants companies to face a 1% profit fine for every 1% wage gap that they allow to exist in their ranks.
By not conducting any nuclear experiments, the U.S. is potentially forgoing military advantages that it now appears the Russians aren't.
If you are not a member of liberals' protected class of bitter loudmouths who hate America, you can be investigated and prosecuted for marriage fraud.
