Bridging The Gap
Pearl Harbor created the 'Greatest Generation.' Out of it came men like George H.W. Bush Pearl Harbor created the 'Greatest Generation.' Out of it came men like George H.W. Bush
Friday marks the 77th anniversary of the event that propelled the United States into World War II. The Japanese attack on the U.S. Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor killed more than 2,400 of our countrymen in a single morning and brought President Franklin D. Roosevelt to Capitol Hill the next day to request — and secure — a declaration of war. The president promised Congress and the world on Dec. ...

Acosta's legacy: Kill the lights, shut off the cameras, reform White House press corps Acosta's legacy: Kill the lights, shut off the cameras, reform White House press corps
The flap over CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass raises larger questions about the troubling relationship between journalists and the Trump presidency. Fixing the problem will take more than simply ejecting members of the press who can’t behave. Rude reporters are nothing new. Recall the days when Sam Donaldson would shout questions at President Ronald Reagan, and the Gipper ...

Matthew Whitaker is an excellent choice to lead Justice Department Matthew Whitaker is an excellent choice to lead Justice Department
I had the honor of serving with Matt Whitaker as a U.S. attorney under President George W. Bush and know from first-hand experience that he embodies the ideals crucial to running the Justice Department effectively. First and foremost, Matt prioritizes the impartial application of the law. Some critics of Matt have deemed him partisan, claiming he would be unable to maintain an impartial view of...

Megyn Kelly was making racist comments long before 'blackface.' NBC hired her anyway. Megyn Kelly was making racist comments long before 'blackface.' NBC hired her anyway.
“Megyn Kelly said something really racist,” should not be a surprising sentence to anyone. After defending blackface, she is reportedly on her way out of the Today show, where she anchors the third hour, and perhaps of NBC altogether. But the original sin was that Kelly was hired by NBC at all. Kelly had a long track record of racial demagoguery at Fox News before she ever set foot in the N...

Can Donald Trump handle the truth about Jamal Khashoggi? Can Donald Trump handle the truth about Jamal Khashoggi?
There's a dark truth behind the disappearance of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi into a Saudi Consulate in Turkey two weeks ago Tuesday. The only question is whether President Donald Trump can be trusted to expose it. That's looking less likely. He has already lapsed into his unfortunate, recurring role as an apologist for brutal leaders who draw his favor. There were inklings of ...

What happened in Las Vegas isn't talked about, unless you bring it up What happened in Las Vegas isn't talked about, unless you bring it up
LAS VEGAS — There are no signs that the largest mass shooting in the U.S. happened here when you are inside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. For two nights, I came back to the hotel I used to stay at for an annual sisters trip. I came back to a place that for me has always meant happy times. More: California couple marries on one-year anniversary of Las Vegas shooting The resort known ...

Ex-CIA analyst: Trump order on Russia documents abuses power, risks national security Ex-CIA analyst: Trump order on Russia documents abuses power, risks national security
In an egregious and unprecedented abuse of power, President Donald Trump has ordered the immediate declassification of documents from the FBI’s active investigation into his own campaign’s ties with Russia. The order includes additional pages and interviews used in the FBI’s application seeking approval for the electronic surveillance of Trump campaign aide Carter Page, as well as all FBI repor...

Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court hearing protests are as American as apple pie Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court hearing protests are as American as apple pie
I’m very sorry to tell Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) that the protestors who disrupted the opening day of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings are not guilty of “mob rule” as he said Tuesday. Ditto to the University of North Carolina leaders who also called “mob rule” on those who toppled Silent Sam, the Confederate statue had stood front and center on the Chapel Hill campus ...

Donald Trump supporters, Catholics and African-Americans share a costly burden Donald Trump supporters, Catholics and African-Americans share a costly burden
Accountability, justice, reform — these are what the public rightfully counts on when hit by revelations of rampant child sexual abuse and cover-ups like that reported by a Pennsylvania grand jury in the case of the Catholic Church. As we cringe at this latest chapter of corruption by a (once) trusted religious institution — 300 sexual-predator priests, more than 1,000 victims, and a pattern of...

Texas AG: We're suing to repeal DACA because no president should have that much power Texas AG: We're suing to repeal DACA because no president should have that much power
“I am president, I am not king. I can’t do these things just by myself.” “With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case.” Despite these statements, President Obama nevertheless proceeded with his notorious DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program. DACA unilaterally granted legal status to a whole class of illega...
