First on CNN: US considers dramatically expanding training of Ukrainian forces, US officials say

  First on CNN: US considers dramatically expanding training of Ukrainian forces, US officials say The Biden administration is considering a dramatic expansion in the training the US military provides to Ukrainian forces, including instructing as many as 2,500 Ukrainian soldiers a month at a US base in Germany, according to multiple US officials. If adopted, the proposal would mark a significant increase not just in the number of Ukrainians the US trains but also in the type of training they receive. Since the start of the conflict in February, the US has trained only a few thousand Ukrainian soldiers, mostly in small groups, on specific weapons systems.

During heated arguments at the Supreme Court yesterday in the case of 303 Creative LLC v. Elenis – about a web designer who doesn’t want to make websites for same-sex couples – Justice Neil Gorsuch appeared angry and even suggested that a Colorado baker had been forced into a “reeducation training program” after he discriminated against a gay couple.

The case is about a web designer named Lori Smith, who says that Colorado’s anti-discrimination law might make her make websites for same-sex couples even though she wants to make them only for opposite-sex couples. Her complaint, which cites the Bible as well as caselaw, says that she “believes that God is calling her to promote and celebrate His design for marriage… between one man and one woman only.”

Don't address your holiday cards wrong: Here's what to know before sharing season's greetings

  Don't address your holiday cards wrong: Here's what to know before sharing season's greetings Whether you’ve been sending Christmas cards for decades or you're sending your first holiday greeting, here’s what to know about season's greetingsBut some people find addressing and mailing holiday cards intimidating.

She is suing over the same law that Colorado baker Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop violated several years ago when he refused to sell a cake to a same-sex couple because he believed they would serve it at a wedding, something he said was against his sincerely held religious beliefs.

In that case, Phillips was ordered to “additional remedial measures, including ‘comprehensive staff training on the Public Accommodations section,'” or training about the state’s anti-discrimination law.

Gorsuch called it a “reeducation program,” language likely used to reference internment camps set up by 20th-century dictatorships to silence dissent. States require training on the law in numerous cases, including education about road laws to get a driver’s license or parenting classes in child custody cases, and usually it’s not referred to as a “reeducation program.”

“Mr. Phillips did go through a reeducation training program, pursuant to Colorado law, did he not, Mr. [Colorado Solicitor General Eric] Olson?” Gorsuch asked.

“He went through a process that ensured he was familiar with…” Olson started to answer.

“It was a reeducation program, right?” Gorsuch pressed.

“It was not a ‘reeducation program,'” Olson said.

“What do you call it?” Gorsuch asked.

“It was a process to make sure he was familiar with Colorado law,” Olson said calmly.

“Some might be excused for calling that a ‘reeducation program,’” Gorsuch snapped back.

“I strongly disagree, Justice Gorsuch,” Olson said.

“Astounding that Gorsuch, a Supreme Court Justice, refers to Colorado giving courses on following civil rights law as ‘reeducation training,'” Adam Cohen of Lawyers for Good Government tweeted. “Like being taught not to discriminate against LGBTQ is the same as being sent to a gulag for protesting communism in the Soviet Union.”

Others criticized Gorsuch for comparing education about the law to internment camps.

He is still there, in anger, to push a living, vibrant work that leaps into the Mojave desert like these tumbleweeds blown by the hot wind.
