BOB UNRUH — A federal judge in Minnesota with a long history of Democratic Party activism has issued a ruling that effectively concludes the LGBT agenda trumps the First Amendment's religious-rights protections. John Tunheim, appointed by then-President Bill Clinton in 1995, ordered Wednesday that Christian videographers Carl and Angel Larsen, through their company, Telescope Media Group, must use their filmmaking talents to promote same-sex marriages if they produce films that celebrate marriage as the union of one man and one woman....

FORTUNE — Hillary Clinton spoke about her thoughts on what she viewed as sexist comments by President Donald Trump and women who continued to support him. "When I see women doing that, I think why are they publicly disrespecting themselves? Why are they opening the door to have someone say that about them in their workplace? In a community setting? Do they not see the connection there?" Clinton said in an interview on AM Joy.... (more)

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — Robert Mueller's sprawling special-counsel investigation is playing hardball. It was not enough to get a search warrant to ransack the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, even as the former Trump campaign chairman was cooperating with congressional investigators.

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — It is not possible for Congress to pass a comprehensive bipartisan solution to healthcare reform. That much is incontrovertible. But in a statement announcing his opposition to the Graham-Cassidy legislation -- one that signaled it was as good as dead -- Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., argued bipartisanship was a necessary component to such efforts, so as not to "leave the American people guessing from one election to the next whether and how they will acquire health insurance."...

WESLEY PRUDEN — We've heard the words and music of this song before. The hoariest cliche in American politics, presented as accomplished fact by every wise head in academe and media after every wipe-out election, is that the losing party is finished. Kaput. Destroyed.

WASHINGTON TIMES — Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson says media outlets are "diving deeply into minutiae" to avoid a stark development: President Trump's previously ridiculed "wiretapping" claims appear to be true. Ms. Attkisson has warned of the weaponization of intelligence agencies since her laptop for CBS News stories was hacked on multiple occasions in 2013. An op-ed she wrote for The Hill on Wednesday presented an extensive case that U.S. intelligence agencies under former President Barack Obama were manipulated for political purposes -- and that pundits are willfully ignoring it....

A month after rebutting Mr. Gore's documentary "An Inconvenient Sequel," Mr. Spencer has published another short e-book, this one challenging statements by Jennifer Lawrence, Bill Nye, Stevie Wonder and others linking global warming to this year's active hurricane season....

CAL THOMAS — While campaigning for the presidency, Donald Trump more than once referred to the United Nations as a "useless" organization and "not a friend of democracy." In his speech Tuesday to the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly, he apparently has discovered the often dysfunctional body can be useful, if it adopts the reforms he is proposing and accepts an agenda that includes uniting to stop North Korea from obtaining nuclear weapons and missiles to strike at U.S and other targets....
