Bridging The Gap
Was Obama administration illegal spying worse than Watergate? Was Obama administration illegal spying worse than Watergate?
In 1972, some employees of President Nixon’s re-election committee were caught when they broke into the Democratic National Committee headquarters to plant a bug. This led to Nixon’s resignation and probably would have led to his felony prosecution had he not been pardoned by his successor, Gerald Ford. But if a single bugging of the political opposition is enough to bring down a presidency — a...

President Trump should move U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem President Trump should move U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem
When he visits Israel on Monday, President Trump will be in a nation on edge about a decision he needs to make by June 2. He has the opportunity to right a historical wrong by advancing international recognition of Jerusalem, the biblical capital of the Jewish people, as the capital of the State of Israel. Although Israel had declared Jerusalem its capital soon after the country achieved indepe...

Trump protest marches are getting old: Column Trump protest marches are getting old: Column
Living in the nation’s capital has its advantages. I get to see national landmarks so constantly that I am annoyed when people ask me to take them to the Lincoln Memorial. It also desensitizes me to every march, protest or strike of the day. Two weeks ago it was the March for Science, last week it was The Great March for Climate Change (I believe there was a little duplication there, but cool) and...

Trumpeting Ann Coulter's free speech: Alicia Shepard Trumpeting Ann Coulter's free speech: Alicia Shepard
Shame on Berkeley, cradle of the Free Speech Movement, and shame on lefty protesters who succeeded in thwarting conservative provocateur Ann Coulter’s right to speak there Thursday night. Wednesday afternoon, officials at the University of California campus canceled the event fearing violent protests that would threaten students' safety. What’s alarming is this is part of a disturbing trend acr...

Trump's making a big strategic mistake on human rights: Max Boot Trump's making a big strategic mistake on human rights: Max Boot
President Trump, mercifully, has not carried out most of his campaign promises. He isn’t declaring China a “currency manipulator” and he isn’t imposing massive tariffs, at least not yet. He hasn’t done any deals with Russia or stopped all Muslims from coming to the United States. He’s even taken back his criticism of NATO as “obsolete.” But in one area Trump has been turning out to be exactly a...

Trump's Syria approach deserves accolades: Column Trump's Syria approach deserves accolades: Column
Thursday night's U.S. missile attack on Syria's Shayrat military base is significant in terms of foreign policy and diplomacy. But President Trump's follow-up actions will determine its exact value. Was the attack a random act or a part of a coherent strategy? This attack is something President Obama should have done when Syria's murderous dictator, Bashar Assad, crossed the red line Obama h...

Border wall or not, Americans come first Border wall or not, Americans come first
The deadline for companies to present their border wall proposal to the Trump administration was Wednesday. Meanwhile, others argue that moving toward a merit-based system for legal immigration would be better. Facebook comments are edited for clarity and grammar: You’re either here legally or you’re not. Not hard to understand, even for liberals. Why don’t immigrants come legally? — Bob Fra...

Don't take the environmental cop off the beat: Column Don't take the environmental cop off the beat: Column
There are few American values we cherish more than fair play and accountability. These values guide any strong law enforcement program that holds bad actors to account when they do harm to others. That is certainly true of how we operated at the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance, where I worked until last year. EPA’s enforcement deters irresponsibl...

Suspending driver's licenses creates a vicious cycle: Column Suspending driver's licenses creates a vicious cycle: Column
Some states are recognizing the injustice of linking to the ability to pay court-imposed fines and fees. Though our nation feels more divided than ever, there is a common concern that cuts across party lines and entrenched ideological silos: a pervasive sense that we have failed to give all Americans an equal opportunity to attain the American dream. Despite our best efforts, government polici...

Democrats have a viable path forward: Guy Cecil Democrats have a viable path forward: Guy Cecil
In the months since President Trump's victory, Democrats have been debating whether we must focus on our party's demographically diverse base or redirect our attention to the white, working-class voters who defected in historic numbers to Donald Trump. This is a false choice. To be successful in 2017, 2018 and beyond, Democrats need to persuade and motivate all of these voters. And there is ear...
