US Moves Closer to Holding CCP Accountable With House Passage of Anti-Forced Organ Harvesting Bill: Lawmakers

“Murderous,” “grotesque,” “immoral,” “barbaric.” The Chinese Communist Party’s forced organ harvesting has appalled Washington and united lawmakers from both sides of the aisle. As a bill seeking to end the atrocity continues to advance—having passed the House by a vote of 413-2—members of Congress cheered the development and reaffirmed their determination to hold the regime accountable. “Forced organ harvesting is cruel and immoral, often targeting ethnic and religious minorities and some of the most vulnerable groups in the world,” said Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), who co-leads the Senate version of the Stop Forced Organ Harvesting Act. As a co-chair of the Senate Human Rights Caucus, he expressed pride in seeing the bill pass the House and getting “closer to empowering the Biden administration to take action against those who practice this despicable crime.”…

Moderna’s Incredible Marketing Magic, Selling Billions To The US Government

by David Reavill We’ll call it the Moderna Marketing Model, which is the solution every marketer dreams about. A gift that keeps on giving. Moderna, as you know, is one of the principal producers of the Covid-19 Vaccine. And while you may assume that the Vaccine has been an absolute windfall for Moderna, you may not fully appreciate just how much the Vaccine has meant to Moderna. Last week, Stephan Bancel, Moderna’s CEO, testified before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions. In his statement before the committee, Mr. Bancel described how Moderna, the company, could not turn a profit in the more than ten years before the Covid Pandemic. Although the company had dozens of the best and brightest researchers in the field and benefited from millions of dollars in grants and investments, they had yet to find that particular market niche that would make them profitable…

House Republicans Say Homeland Security Chief’s $60 Billion Budget Concedes Border Cannot Be Secured

Any federal department head with a $60.4 billion annual spending request is going to see fiscal hawks on Congressional panels flash their budget-cutting knives in appropriations hearings. But when it comes to embattled United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas—literally, the face of President Joe Biden’s much-maligned border and immigration policies—House Republicans don’t want to trim his budget, they want his head on a platter. According to DHS, there have been 4.7 million “encounters” with illegal immigrants reported at the nation’s southern border since the Biden administration assumed office in January 2021. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas testifies before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee in Washington on March 28, 2023.

Apache Stronghold v. U.S.: Religious Freedom and Government Property

There’s long been a dispute about whether religious freedom provisions limit the government’s power related to religious sites on government land. These are usually American Indian sites, though in principle they might be other religious sites as well. In Lyng v. Northwest Indian Cemetery Protective Ass’n (1988), the Court held that the Free Exercise Clause doesn’t give religious groups the legal right to stop various government activities related to such sites (even though at the time, after Sherbert v. Verner but before Employment Division v. Smith, the Court had read the Free Exercise Clause as securing a presumptive right to religious exemptions from generally applicable government action). But one enduring question has been whether the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 should be read as perpetuating Lyng, alongside other Sherbert-era precedents, or should be read as supersed…

Nearly 40 Migrants Died in a Juarez Detention Center Fire. U.S. Border Policy Is Partially To Blame.

On Monday night, a fire broke out at a migrant detention center in Ciudad Juarez, a Mexican city just across the border from El Paso, Texas. By the time the smoke cleared, nearly 40 migrants were dead. Mexican and American government officials have blamed many factors for the tragedy. Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said the migrants had started the fire “as a form of protest” after learning they would be deported. (Some migrants who had previously been in the shelter have doubted this account, saying the center strips all migrants of their possessions). Some have implicated the detention center guards, who were seen in a video “not appear[ing] to make any effort to open the cell doors,” per the Associated Press. The State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration called the deaths “a painful reminder of the risks of irregular migration.” But U.S. immigrati…
