The State Of Our Union
As the country prepares to celebrate Independence Day, I'd like to take a look at the state of our union as measured through a series of recent polls.
A Rasmussen poll released yesterday found that the public's approval of the Supreme Court has "fallen to the lowest level ever recorded." Only 28% of voters feel the court is doing a good job, while 30% say it is doing a poor job.

Tragedy In Arizona
Prescott, Arizona, is reeling from the news that 19 members of an elite firefighting unit were killed battling a blazing fire near the small town of Yarnell. "We're devastated. We just lost 19 of the finest people you'll ever meet," Prescott Fire Chief Dan Fraijo said yesterday.
Our hearts go out to the families of these brave firefighters. It is a tragic reminder that on a daily basis first responders here at home are putting their lives on the line to help and protect us, just as our men and women in uniform do overseas.

We MUST Keep Fighting!
Based on the messages I have received, many of you (and especially our friends in California) seem tempted to give up. Some are asking, "Why should we bother anymore?"
This may be shocking to you, but if we throw up our arms in frustration and surrender the public policy arena to the left, it will get a whole lot worse. We are headed toward the criminalization of Christianity. Let me explain.

At first glance it appears to be a split decision, but not as bad as many feared it would be. We will have a special report later this afternoon with more analysis.

Border Compromise Is A Bad Deal
We told you last week that the purpose of the big border security amendment compromise was not to stop illegal immigration. The purpose was to fool enough of the public so that enough senators would feel they had cover to cast a vote for what is becoming the immigration reform equivalent of Obamacare.

Farm Bill Defeated In House
Yesterday the House of Representatives voted down a $940 billion farm bill. The House leadership faced a revolt from both sides of the aisle. Conservative Republicans were angry over too much spending on subsidies, and liberal Democrats were upset over how much was cut from food stamps.

There is news today of an agreement that will improve the border security aspects of the Senate's quasi-amnesty bill. The deal supposedly involves doubling the Border Patrol by adding 20,000 new agents, hundreds of miles of border fencing and surveillance drones to track illegal immigrants attempting to cross the border.
We will provide more details as we have them, but I'm skeptical. Security has been promised repeatedly for thirty years. It hasn't been done.
