Veterans Deserve Better

April 25, 2018 - 7:00am

As senators consider the nomination of the next secretary of veterans affairs, they should first reflect on the story of an Army veteran named Jason White.

The Senate Must Confirm Pompeo

April 22, 2018 - 7:00am

For the first time in the history of the republic, it appears increasingly likely that a majority of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will vote against the president's nominee for secretary of state. If this happens, it would be a black mark not on Mike Pompeo's record, but on the reputation of this once-storied committee.

Why North Korea Will Be Watching What Trump Does in Syria

April 16, 2018 - 7:00am

President Trump's decision last year to launch 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian air base was intended to send the Assad regime a message that its use of chemical weapons would no longer be tolerated. But the strikes also had a broader purpose: showing other regimes that the Obama era of U.S. weakness was over, and that America's adversaries would have to adjust their calculations about our willingness to act in response to their provocations.

There Is Nothing Wrong With a Census Question About Citizenship

March 31, 2018 - 7:00am

The Trump administration is being sued over its plans to include a question about citizenship in the 2020 Census, which California Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D) says "is not just a bad idea - it is illegal."

It's Not the Job of Cabinet Officials to Be a 'Check' on the President

March 29, 2018 - 7:00am

In the wake of President Trump's decision to appoint John Bolton as his national security adviser and Mike Pompeo as secretary of state, a consistent criticism has emerged: Trump will no longer have any "adult" supervision in the national security decision-making process or any Cabinet-level "checks" on his own worst instincts.

No, Liberals Don't Hate America. And Conservatives Are Not Racists.

March 21, 2018 - 7:00am

I'm a rock-ribbed conservative who wants Republicans to keep control of Congress. But I'm not unhappy that Republican state Rep. Rick Saccone appears to have lost the special election in Pennsylvania's 18th Congressional District.

Trump Needs to Be Clear About One Thing in Meeting With Kim Jong Un

March 17, 2018 - 7:00am

With the nomination and likely confirmation of Mike Pompeo as secretary of state, President Trump will soon have a trusted adviser who can prepare him for his upcoming summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Pompeo's first job is to make sure Trump understands one thing going into those talks: North Korea has no plans to give up its nuclear weapons at the negotiating table.

Tariffs Will Force Trump to Break Key Campaign Promises

March 7, 2018 - 7:00am

President Trump's announcement that he will impose stiff tariffs on American companies that purchase imported steel and aluminum should have come as no surprise. From moving our embassy to Jerusalem to pulling out of the Paris climate agreement, Trump is a president who does what he promises. Unfortunately, his proposed tariffs undermine his ability to deliver on many other important promises he made in the 2016 campaign.

Time to Protect Public Workers from Unions' Coercion

March 2, 2018 - 7:00am

The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) is ostensibly a public worker union. In truth, it is nothing more than an appendage of the Democratic Party. One hundred percent of its political contributions go to Democrats, and it works tirelessly to increase government spending and stop Republicans who want to reform state government.

The GOP Tax Reform Used to Be Extremely Unpopular. Not Anymore.

February 26, 2018 - 2:00am

When the Republican-controlled Congress first approved its tax bill in December, most Democrats believed it would be a political loser for the GOP. Indeed, a New York Times poll found that just 37 percent of Americans approved of the plan. "To pass a bill of tax cuts and have it be so unpopular with the American people is an amazing achievement for the Republicans -- it's never been done before," Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., crowed.
