It was a session of the Kentucky Bar Association, but it felt like a wake. A reasonably large crowd came to hear about the downbeat topic of attorney suicides. Two years ago, a number of Kentucky attorneys took their own lives.
Under existing law, with the stroke of a pen, President Obama could solve the current crisis of the Central American children coming to America without visas.
Progressives can surely add to this list of issues that a Supreme Court with a liberal majority should address. Unfortunately, presidential candidates won't directly address these issues or the views of candidates they would appoint to the Supreme Court when vacancies arise
The Saudi position is completely at odds with this argument, on the grounds that UN engagement of Iran in Syria or Iraq would legitimize Iran's regional ambitions that go beyond the borders of Iran and legitimizes the role and influence of Iran in these two Arab countries.
On this Fourth of July weekend, as the world's greatest democracy celebrates its independence, it has an opportunity to right that wrong by reversing course and supporting the Iraqi Kurds in their road to independence.
The federal Highway Trust Fund is running out of money, and some senators have proposed to fix the problem by raising gas taxes. This, however, is the wrong solution because it treats the symptom, and not the underlying reason for the shortfall.
The U.S. military and U.S. tax dollars are already deeply entangled in Middle Easterners' lives (and deaths), and President Obama is under pressure to get further involved in the wars in Iraq and Syria. But what advice would our nation's founders give the 44th president this July 4?

The Supreme Court ended the session as it has nearly every other session since Obama took office by taking every opportunity to escalate its war on him. It's a war the court will wage without end against him and any other moderate Democrat that sits in the White House.
No Israeli or Palestinian child should die in a conflict that could have been resolved decades ago. They deserve and have the right to live in peace and a promising future. The precious loss of life of Naftali, Gilad and Eyal should not be in vain -- may their victimhood be the catalyst for peace.
What we have called "Iraq" since the British and French carved up the old Ottoman Empire after World War I is obviously over. So why are President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, in the midst of the unfolding Gulf War III, wasting time pretending they might save the old carcass?
