On Wednesday, July 1st, the City Council of Los Angeles will vote on a motion to cut 150 million dollars from the LAPD budget. The proposal represents a significant cut in the $2 billion Police Department budget while allocating those funds to other civic agencies.
This motion was written to address the racial bias minority communities suffer at the hands of the police. The City Council vote to slash the department’s funds will impact public safety by among other things, cutting the police force by over 300 officers and reducing the police car total by over 30 in addition to those vehicles lost in the demonstrations. The funds are to be redirected to city agencies like the Youth Development Taskforce and the Parks and Recreation.

The 5-4 ruling is a narrow but significant win for the school choice movement
The Supreme Court on Tuesday struck down a ban on taxpayer funding for religious schools, in a narrow but significant win for the school choice movement.
In the 5-4 ruling, authored by Chief Justice John Roberts, the court essentially backed a Montana tax-credit scholarship program that gave residents up to a $150 credit for donating to private scholarship organizations, helping students pay for their choice of private schools. The state's revenue department made a rule banning those tax-credit scholarships from going to religious schools before the state's supreme court later struck down the entire program.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee is holding a hearing Tuesday with Dr. Anthony Fauci and other key Trump administration health officials on the U.S. response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Baltimore, MD, June 30, 2020 — The Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV), representing over 1500 traditional, Orthodox rabbis in matters of public policy, today expressed support for Israeli self-determination regarding extension of Israeli civil sovereignty over communities in Judea and Samaria. In particular, the rabbis deplored objection to Israeli sovereignty as “tainted with ugly bias.” Following the end of the British Mandate in Palestine, the Arab League rejected peace proposals and attacked the nascent State of Israel. Though they failed in their goal of a “momentous massacre,” the Jordanian Army seized a portion of Judea and Samaria which it dismissively termed the “West Bank,” as well as East Jerusalem, including the site of the Holy T...
A one-sided, anti-Israel letter being circulated in the House by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)—cosigned by Reps. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Betty McCollum (D-MN):
Directly threatens the U.S.-Israel relationship
Supports conditioning and cutting America’s security assistance commitment to Israel
Would damage American interests, risk the security of Israel and make a two-state solution less likely
Urge your representative to oppose cutting aid to Israel and not sign this letter.
Baltimore’s National Aquarium will reopen to the general public Wednesday and the management is hoping guests can help to put a dent in the mounting financial losses sustained so far this year due to the coronavirus.
“It’s a lot of money,” said National Aquarium President and CEO John Racanelli.
Since the aquarium was shut down in mid-March it has lost about $11.5 million dollars, Racanelli said, a number that is expected to grow to $20 million by the end of 2020.
“It’s going to be a tough year for the aquarium,” he said. “We’ve made it our priority to get through this year and survive 2020 so that we can thrive in 2021.”
Each year, the aquarium welcomes about 1.3 million guests; a fraction of that will happen this year...

In total, the governor has committed m...

The United States is ending its special treatment of Hong Kong as separate from mainland China, with both the State and Commerce departments announcing actions Monday that will pare back its special status. This comes after Beijing ushered a sweeping national security law through its rubber-stamp parliament last month that will drastically increase mainland China’s control of Hong Kong.
Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said the U.S. is taking back some trade benefits it affords Hong Kong by suspending the availability of export license exceptions. He said further actions are also being evaluated.
“With the Chinese Communist Party’s imposition of new security measures on Hong Kong, the risk that sensitive U.S. technology will be diverted ...
