timesunion.com — Hillary Clinton can't keep her story straight. I'm not talking about her email servers. She can't stick to a consistent line on the rather more central issue of the U.S. economy. It is leading to odd tonal shifts in her campaign, and to some foolish policy choices, too.

Ramesh Ponnuru: Liberals support religious liberty - for some

dallasnews.com — The American tradition of religious freedom has long included exemptions from laws that impose a burden on the exercise of faith. The Volstead Act implementing Prohibition, for example, made an exception for the sacramental use of alcohol.

Re: Planned Parenthood's Scandal

nationalreview.com — Pollster Kellyanne Conway corroborated my second point below in a poll she conducted in 2013 for the National Right to Life Committee. A full 88 percent of respondents said they were familiar with Planned Parenthood, but only 45 percent said that they thought its affiliates perform abortions.

Hillary Clinton’s economic plan doesn’t add up

miamiherald.com — Hillary Clinton can't keep her story straight. I'm not talking about her email servers. She can't stick to a consistent line on the rather more central issue of the U.S. economy. It is leading to odd tonal shifts in her campaign, and to some foolish policy choices, too.

Planned Parenthood's Scandal: A Few Points

nationalreview.com — Second: I suspect that Americans have associated Planned Parenthood with contraception more than they have associated it with abortion. That has been good for the organization's image. (There's a reason it promotes the misleading statistic that abortion makes up only 3 percent of its services.)

Reform Conservatism Comes to Google

nationalreview.com — Next Tuesday, Google's D.C. office will host the launch event for a new series of briefing books from the Conservative Reform Network. The first three of those briefing books-on the health of American entrepreneurship, taking on the higher-education cartel, and protecting the environment the right way-will be released.

Ponnuru: Religious liberty is the latest victim of Obamacare

hamptonroads.com — A group of Catholic nuns, the Little Sisters of the Poor, wants relief from the Affordable Care Act’s mandate that it offer contraceptive coverage to its employees.
