Same-Sex Marriage in California In 2008, voters passed Proposition 8, enacting a ban on same-sex marriage. A federal district court overturned the measure, and then-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Attorney General Jerry Brown refused to defend it. It was the proposition's supporters who took it up to the US Supreme Court, but it ruled today they lacked "standing." That means the district court ruling remains in effect. This morning, current Attorney General, Kamela Harris, told a press conference, "The wedding bells will ring."
What is Trump's plan for Middle East peace? On his first foreign tour, President Trump has promised "peace" between Israel and the Palestinians. Are there any details for re-starting talks that have been stalled for the past three years?
Replacing Obamacare: Now you see it… now you don’t As the Senate deliberates replacing Obmacare, health coverage for millions of people is at stake. There've been no public hearings, and a draft measure won't be made public. Is the House version so unpopular that that Senate is hiding a version that looks much the same?
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
