December 18, 2018 Editorial
An attack on America’s space assets would deal a devastating blow to our everyday way of life. When we think about satellite technology, many think first about satellite television or the Global Positioning System we use to help navigate around town. Cellphone towers are dependent on the timing signals sent from GPS satellites to correctly synchronize and ensure our access to the network. Likewise, those same timing signals are used by computer networks, financial markets, and even some electrical power grids around the country. Other technologies housed in space are responsible for things like weather forecasts, ATM access and credit card usage. Without satellite networks, nearly every form of digital communication would be severely degraded as bandwidth limitations in ground-based communication pipes would reduce speed and reliability almost instantly. In other words, our way of life is dependent on consistent and assured access to satellite-enabled technology.

Washington D.C. - Today in Buenos Aires, President Trump, President Nieto of Mexico, and Prime Minister Trudeau of Canada signed the U.S-Canada-Mexico Agreement (USMCA), the trilateral trade agreement replacing NAFTA. For the first time, an American trade agreement is including sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) language.

November 30, 2018 Editorial
For the first time in a free trade agreement, sexual orientation and gender identity language (SOGI) is contained within President Trump’s U.S.-Mexico-Canada-Agreement (USMCA). At Canada’s insistence, Article 23 of the agreement redefines the word “sex” to include “sexual orientation and gender identity.” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government is calling it a “win” for the LGBT community. But it is a loss for American sovereignty.
