Senators have an opportunity to model religious tolerance in the Amy Coney Barrett hearings. Will they?

I’ve never met Amy Coney Barrett, and I’m not a legal scholar with informed opinions on her past judicial rulings. But I find myself sympathizing with her as she prepares to enter the lion’s den of Supreme Court confirmation hearings.

Because like Barrett, but on a smaller stage, I know what it’s like to juggle a high-profile career, in a flyover state, while raising small children and practicing my faith, a kind of faith that many of my colleagues thought disqualified me from doing good work.

When I read that at a 2017 court of appeals confirmation hearing, Sen. Dianne Feinstein told Judge Barrett, “the dogma lives loudly within you” — implying that the judge would impose her conservative Catholic faith on Americans — I flashed back to a standoff with colleagues early in my broadcast journalism career.

It was shortly after I’d been assigned to the religion and culture

Model Portfolio Presents Credible Emerging Markets Opportunity

Broadly speaking, emerging markets equities are flailing again this year as the MSCI Emerging Markets Index is lower by two-thirds of a percent.

However, there remain pockets of opportunities in developing economies. Advisors can leverage those opportunities with WisdomTree’s Emerging Markets Multi-Factor Portfolio.

“This model portfolio is designed for investors with a long-term horizon looking for exposure to a broad universe of Emerging Market equities primarily using factor focused ETFs,” according to WisdomTree. “The selected ETFs provide certain factor tilts that have the potential to generate excess return relative to comparable cap-weighted benchmarks over longer-term holding periods. The strategies may use both WisdomTree and non-WisdomTree ETFs.”

Emerging markets equities could be back in vogue if there’s regime change here in the U.S. come November and that could be a positive for some of the funds featured in the Emerging Markets Multi-Factor Portfolio.

As the military’s support of President Donald Trump declines, according to recent polls, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign is working to woo both veterans and the families of active military members by capitalizing on media reports of Trump’s comments about the military, as well as the support of a high-profile military spouse. 

Given the increased diversity of the military — which has been going up for decades even as the total veteran population declines — talking to women and voters of color are key to the Biden campaign’s strategy.

Black female politicians are rare. Opportunity PAC could be solution

In late May, Mona Das watched as protests unfolded in Minneapolis over the killing of George Floyd.

A senator in Washington state, Das felt like she needed to do something to address the systemic racism that had created conditions for a white police officer to kneel onto the neck of Floyd, a Black man, for more than eight minutes.

“I was sitting on the couch thinking, ‘What can I do?’” she recalled.

Das observed people on her social media feed raising matching funds to help arrested protesters with bail money. As she witnessed the collective power of people opening their wallets to respond to the moment, Das thought about how that might help candidates of color — specifically, she knew of several Black women running for the Washington statehouse —
