The Trump administration recently proposed the Safer Affordable Fuel-Efficient (SAFE) Vehicles Rule. The proposed rule offers modifications to Obama-era Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards with a “preferred alternative” for model years 2021 through 2026.

President Trump wants to get you into a new car of your choice for less money and sooner rather than later. To make that happen, his administration has just proposed to eliminate the pointless and expensive fuel economy standards for cars and light trucks issued by the Obama administration in 2012.

Speaking at the “Rise up for Roe” rally this past Saturday in Manhattan, Chelsea Clinton along with CNN political commentator Symone Sanders and columnist Lauren Duca urged attendees to oppose the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.  Clinton, like many other supporters of legal abortion, thinks Kavanaugh might be the fifth vote to reverse the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. However, Chelsea Clinton’s defense of Roe v. Wade was unconventional. During her remarks, she stated that the women entering the economy between 1973 and 2009 added $3.5 trillion in wealth to the U.S. economy.

The coming decades promise some potentially large changes in personal mobility, including widespread use of electric vehicles, the introduction of fully autonomous vehicles (AVs), and the possible replacement of individually owned vehicles with “Mobility as a Service” (MaaS). So I’m grateful to Ed Regan for his five-part Public Works Financing series on disruptive change. Ed was kind enough to provide me several of the many sources he is researching for his series. While there is a range of outlooks about future mobility change, one seemed to be particularly aggressive and somewhat unrealistic about the pace and magnitude of disruptive policy change. That is a report from RethinkX called, “Rethinking Transportation 2020-2030” (May 2017).

In the latest issue of Vanity Fair magazine, perpetually bilious writer James Wolcott has attacked the "myth of Hollywood's conservative blacklist." He finds it highly amusing that anyone would fear damage to their acting career for publicly favoring this president.

Many of us have an attitude that because of our financial struggles, or perhaps because we are just barely able to give to ministries and still pay our bills, one insignificant dollar matters very little in the Kingdom work of Jesus Christ here on earth. But it does matter deeply.

George Cahill volunteered to fight in World War II at the earliest possible age: 17-and-a-half. Both parents signed off, and he headed to gunnery school in Las Vegas.
