Several Republicans came to President Donald Trump’s defense after his remarks during a Monday press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin were slammed as “disgraceful” by politicians and pundits on both sides of the aisle.

At the Helsinki, Finland, press conference, which followed an hourslong private meeting between Trump and Putin, Trump cast doubt on the US intelligence community’s assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 US presidential election. He also attacked his Democratic opponents and the FBI, and — when election meddling was mentioned in a question — he said he held both countries accountable for their state of relations.

President Donald Trump’s odd deference to Russia is losing him some of his biggest fans: Fox News hosts.

This month has seen some huge judicial victories for God’s people here in America, as the Supreme Court ruled in favor of both a Christian business owner and of pro-life crisis pregnancy centers in California.

I applaud these judicial decisions and commend those who celebrate this victory and ready themselves to press on and fight for more victories.

Yet I sometimes wonder: Have we forgotten the victory that must precede all the others? I fear that we often do forget.

BLADENSBURG, MD — A long tradition of using crosses to honor those who died in war to protect their fellow citizens’ freedom could be at risk.

It’s another reason why US Supreme Court justices are crucial because, right now, only the highest court can reverse a lower court’s decision that could affect war monuments across the nation.

Dominated by a large stone cross, the memorial to Maryland men killed in World War I, known as Peace Cross, has stood in Bladensburg, Maryland, just outside Washington, DC since 1925.

This technological transformation is happening right now, and we will see significant change occur, not over the next couple of decades, but within the next couple of years.

Very few people in today’s busy world are aware of just how much their lives are about to change, and how unavoidable and irrevocable this change is going to be.

The technological innovations described in this article are widely believed to be those that will occur in only the next five years, mostly by 2022.
