"Our nation was founded on the idea that we are all created equal under God...

In late February, the Trump administration announced a global initiative to end the criminalization of homosexuality around the world. The move is, at least in part, a response to a series of state-sanctioned killings of gays and lesbians, mostly by theocratic regimes in the Middle East.

...Ever since the Lawrence decision decriminalized homosexual conduct nearly 16 years ago, we as a nation have come a long way in our search for equal treatment of homosexuals. But we must remember that there are still parts of the world where your sexual orientation can mean countless years in prison, or even death.

According to an analysis of foreign sexual orientation laws, there are still 72 countries where homosexual acts between consenting adults are illegal. Fifty-seven of these countries incarcerate gay and lesbians for up to 14 years if they are found guilty of homosexual conduct. Over a dozen countries, most in the Middle East, sentence gay individuals to life imprisonment. In eight of these countries (Iran, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Somalia, Nigeria, Syria, and Iraq) homosexuality is even punishable by death.

Tragic stories of gay persecutions, like those in Iran and Chechnya last month, make headlines far too often. As Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said last year on the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia, “too many governments continue to arrest and abuse their citizens simply for being lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or intersex.” We, as Americans, must speak out against human rights abuses wherever they may occur, both at home and abroad. It is our moral imperative as a nation to condemn rogue foreign governments that continue to persecute, punish, and execute individuals merely for their sexual orientation.

Our nation was founded on the idea that we are all created equal under God, and that every person — gay, straight, or otherwise — is equally entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

This is the stuff that matters. Not the noise of the swamp.

Model Elizabeth Pipko: ‘Jexodus’ Helps Jewish Millennials Leave the Antisemitic Left

...Jexodus describes itself on its website:
We are proud Jewish Millennials tired of living in bondage to leftist politics. We reject the hypocrisy, anti-Americanism, and anti-Semitism of the rising far-left. Progressives, Democrats, and far too many old-school Jewish organizations take our support for granted. After all, we’re Jewish, and Jews vote for Democrats.

Until today.

We are determined and we are unafraid to speak for ourselves. As combatants and veterans of the campus wars, we know the threat progressivism poses to Jews. We’ve had front row seats witnessing anti-Semites hide behind the thin veil of anti-Zionism. We know the BDS movement harbors deep hatred not only for Israel, but for Jews. We’re done standing with supposed Jewish leaders and allegedly supportive Democrats who rationalize, mainstream, and promote our enemies. We’d rather spend forty years wandering in the desert than belong to a party that welcomes Jew-haters.
Pollak invited Pipko’s comment on House Democrats’ postponement of a proposed resolution opposing antisemitism.

“I think even the vote was a small effort in pretending that they cared [about antisemitism],” assessed Pipko. “There has been such an outrage in the media and among Republicans in Congress, and everyone that surrounds them, but I don’t feel any strong effort. I actually feel it’s getting worse since the Obama presidency, so I’m not really believing that it’s going to happen or that it’s going to change anything.”

California public employees’ pension perks can be taken away, court rules

...The case turned on a challenge to former Gov. Jerry Brown’s 2012 pension law. The law, passed in the Great Recession amid concern about mounting pension debts, required public employees hired after Jan. 1, 2013 to kick in more money to fund their pensions. It also capped the amount of money they could earn in retirement....

The critical yet overlooked part of Trump's trip to Vietnam was ... Vietnam

...“I think [the administration’s] view is that Vietnam and the U.S. have a lot of security interests in common, and the top of that of course is concern about China’s maritime activities,” said Zack Cooper, an American Enterprise Institute research fellow who focuses on U.S. alliances in Asia. “That Vietnam has pushed back so firmly against some of China’s activity in the South China Sea is something the administration has noticed, and they want partners that are going to stand up firmly for their interests.”

Trump’s visit to Hanoi for his second summit with Kim opened with meetings with Vietnam’s president and prime minister, as well as a signing of commercial trade deals worth more than $21 billion. The agreements are expected to support more than 83,000 U.S. jobs, a senior administration official said.

Bilateral talks with Vietnamese officials focused on a number of issues, including trade, denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and “ways to strengthen the United States-Vietnam Comprehensive Partnership, including by deepening political, security, economic, and people-to-people ties, and through cooperation on humanitarian and legacy of war issues,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said.
