#FosterCareMonth Favor to Ask: Spread the Word about Upcoming Forum in D.C.

I’m hosting a foster-care forum in Washington, D.C., on May 24. We’ll have the incoming chair of the U.S. bishops’ pro-life office, Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City. The event will include foster parents, policymakers, researchers, and people who have made it their loving business to connect children and families. With the current opioid crisis, the foster-care system is unsustainable. But on any day, orphans ought to be on the minds and in the prayers of those who believe themselves to be adopted sons and daughters of God. It’s part of the Christian mission, which is why you want people of faith to always be providing homes and connections. We also want to raise awareness about need and resources. The goal of the forum is to be educational, emphasizing what a priority we all need to be making of foster care and adoption and highlighting resources, so no one walks away without potential action items. We’re hoping for an audience of people who can add to the conversation or may want to contribute to the solution. If you know anyone who will be in D.C. that morning (perhaps including from out of town for the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast — our forum will be immediately following it in the same hotel), please let them know about our event. Thank you! Details are here. Thank you!

How Democrats Can Blow It in 2020

Donald Trump probably can’t win the 2020 presidential election, but the Democrats can lose it. What I mean is that in a contest between Trump and a generic Democrat, Trump would almost surely lose if the current political climate holds through 2020. According to a Fox News poll this week, 38 percent of ... Read More

Clint Eastwood’s Unforgettable Curtain Call

At 88, Clint Eastwood seldom appears on screen anymore and last acted in a movie in 2012’s mediocre Trouble with the Curve. So the final images of The Mule may be the last we see of him at the movies. If so, what an exit: understated perfection, with a playful hint of subverting his screen image. The Mule is ... Read More
