A conservative legal organization filed a federal civil-rights complaint against Dick’s Sporting Goods on Thursday for sponsoring staff abortions while failing to provide equivalent paid maternity care to employees. America First Legal (AFL) asked the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to open a civil-rights investigation into the company, alleging multiple violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination based on parental status. After the decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned Roe v. Wade, Dick’s announced a special employment benefit of “up to $4,000” in travel reimbursement for an employee, spouse, or dependent

Woke virtue signaling, but paying to kill your unborn is cheaper than paying to help raise him. The appropriately named “Dick’s” wants it both ways. I buy my golf balls from Walmart and other golf equipment from the PGA Superstore.

I apologize for possibly offending you people, but I want you to think this one through. Let's create a hypothetical here. The CEO of Dick's likes Bridge - the card game. She informs the employees that anyone playing bridge, and traveling to a Bridge tournament as a participant, will have travel expenses reimbursed, up to 4000 dollars. Some of the employees don't like Bridge, but participate in Pinochle tournaments. And they ask the girl CEO of Dick's to reimburse them for their travel to Pinochle tournaments. The girl CEO says 'no.' Would a court rule in favor of the Pinochle players? I don't think so. Now let's take on the Title VII violations. Would the white employees win? Yes, at the trial level. Would Dick's win on appeal? I don't know. If it reached the U.S. Supreme Court, and Dick's used a quota system, I am certain that the three witches of D.C./ would find quota systems constitutional! The Wise Latina ruled that way in a case involving firefighter promotions while she sat on the 3rd circuit. How would the chief Judas Justice Roberts rule? Probably with the 3 witches. Would any of the remaining justices cave in and uphold quotas? Probably not, but I'm not sure. The uproar, should the Court rule 5-4 against minorities, would be as great as the abortion uproar. So one more Justice might create a way to rule in favor of Dick's and their quotas.

Republicans are actively courting Hispanic voters in key competitive House districts, hoping to peel away voters from Democrats repeating their historical pattern of investing little and late in reaching out to Latinos. The GOP’s approach is a danger to Democrats, as Hispanic voters are likely to play a key role in at least a dozen districts in the November midterm elections. “It couldn’t be a starker contrast between Republicans and Democrats as we engage and do outreach to minority voters, and specifically the Hispanic community,” said Danielle Alvarez, communications director for the GOP.

Joe Manchin on Thursday rejected Senate Democrats’ proposed energy and climate investments, as well as their goals of increasing taxes on the wealthy and large corporations, according to a Democrat briefed on the discussions. Instead the West Virginia senator said “unequivocally” during a meeting with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer that he will only support reducing drug prices and a two-year extension of Affordable Care Act subsidies as components of a party-line bill designed to evade a filibuster, the person said. Manchin’s rejection at the meeting blew up weeks of discussions over a larger legislative package. It leaves a slim health-care focused bill as the only option

In a Wednesday tweet, the Associated Press Stylebook reiterated guidance advising journalists to refrain from using the terms “assault weapon” and “assault rifle,” which they call “highly politicized.” “The preferred term for a rifle that fires one bullet each time the trigger is pulled, and automatically reloads for a subsequent shot, is a semi-automatic rifle. An automatic rifle continuously fires rounds if the trigger is depressed and until its ammunition is exhausted,” reads a July 2022 style tip, recommending their usage over more general references to “assault” weaponry. According to the Stylebook, which is adhered to by newsrooms across the country,

Just remember, as bad as today’s consumer-price index read on inflation is, it could have been worse. One man has stood in the way of Joe Biden’s ambitions to flood the economy with trillions in off-budget government spending even after Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan touched off the worst inflationary wave in 40-plus years. The $5 trillion Build Back Better plan would have acted like a nuclear explosion for inflation. We all know who kept us from the brink of disaster. Here’s a reminder from last month: For almost a year now, Chuck Schumer has tried to cut a deal with Joe Manchin to get something passed under reconciliation.

The child became the subject of national media attention after the Indianapolis Star reported earlier this month that an Indianapolis-based obstetrician-gynecologist named Caitlin Bernard was asked by a child-abuse doctor in Ohio to help the young girl get an abortion

French President Emmanuel Macron warned his country’s people Thursday to prepare for a total cutoff of Russian natural gas by supporting alternatives, having public lights switched off at night and engaging in a period of nationwide energy “sobriety.” The Russian invasion of Ukraine and ensuing sanctions have aggravated other factors driving up prices for energy and others goods. With no end in sight for the Ukraine war, Macron said, the French should brace themselves for costs to remain high. “This war will continue,” he said in a televised interview marking France’s national holiday, Bastille Day. “The summer, early autumn will be very hard.”
