The Weekly Fix: Naval Officers Turn Pirate

The fix is in. The U.S. military and law enforcement communities are overwhelmingly comprised of heroes, many of whom have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and safety. However, select individuals within these revered institutions have been taking advantage of the system in corrupt and ethically reprehensible ways.

Blame a Dithering Congress, not Trump, for Democratic Wins

After a hotly contested — and highly expensive — 2017 election cycle, the Democrats have taken the governor’s mansions in both Virginia and New Jersey. In both cases, it was a sweeping victory, with Ralph Northam winning nearly 54 percent of the Virginia vote and Ryan Murphy winning 56 percent of the New Jersey vote.

SESTA Needs Further Amending

The Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act (SESTA) will be marked up in committee tomorrow, and if passed, the bill would badly damage Internet innovation. To avoid substantial unintended consequences, Senators should consider adding language to SESTA in order to protect innocent websites.

Support the SAFE Justice Act, H.R. 4261

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to co-sponsor the Safe, Accountable, Fair, Effective (SAFE) Justice Act, H.R. 4261, introduced by Reps. Bobby Scott (D-Va.) and Jason Lewis (R-Minn.). The bill would focus resources on violent and career offenders, implement evidence-based programs to reduce recidivism, restore congressional intent to certain mandatory minimum sentences, and address over-criminalization in federal criminal statutes and regulations and over-federalization of criminal law.

Cancer Saved Our Small Business From the Death Tax

You read the headline right. In 2010, the gradual decline of the so-called death tax reached a full repeal for that year and that year only. That year just so happened to be the year my grandfather, the patriarch of our family’s small manufacturing business, lost his long and painful battle with cancer. Had we been so fortunate to have him for another year, we would have lost everything he worked so hard to build. My father was the president of the company at the time, a firm specializing in creating composite equipment. You’ve probably never heard of the composites industry, let alone our company, but I guarantee you’ve used products our machines made. You probably took a shower in a tub made with our equipment today. There are countless applications of composites, from bathtubs, boats, oil and gas, infrastructure, and defense.

Here's What You Need to Know About the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

On Thursday, November 2, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas) unveiled the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, H.R. 1. On Friday, Chairman Brady released an amendment in the nature of a substitute (ANS) that made some changes to the original text. The bill is the first real attempt to overhaul and simplify the tax code since the Tax Reform Act of 1986. The release of the text and the amendment are also only the first steps in the process.
