Bridging The Gap
At stake in Cambridge Analytica scandal? Not just privacy, but freedom itself: Chertoff At stake in Cambridge Analytica scandal? Not just privacy, but freedom itself: Chertoff
The Cambridge Analytica scandal has been in the headlines for weeks as a melodrama of political intrigue that normally would be a television mini-series. There is the misuse of social media data belonging to 50 million people; the conversion of that data into micro targeted political campaign marketing to help the Trump campaign; newspaper stories about the company and its affiliates working ...

From 'Little Marco' to 'Cryin' Chuck,' all hail Melania Trump's cyberbullying campaign From 'Little Marco' to 'Cryin' Chuck,' all hail Melania Trump's cyberbullying campaign
As first lady Melania Trump embarked on her campaign to tackle cyberbullying, luminaries from across the nation cheered her on with (ahem) the same level of respect her husband has shown them. “Little Marco” Rubio, “Crooked Hillary” and captured coward-prisoner-of-war John McCain nodded in approval. "Low Energy" Jeb, Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren and “Lyin’ Ted Cruz” were equally impressed with...

Congress must draw 'red line' to protect Mueller, warn Trump against firing and pardons: Mark Warner Congress must draw 'red line' to protect Mueller, warn Trump against firing and pardons: Mark Warner
In 2016, Russia used the weapons of information warfare to attack the United States. The Kremlin’s goal: to undermine our democracy and weaken the United States and our Western democratic allies. This is not the opinion of one senator, or of one political party. It is the unanimous conclusion of our nation’s intelligence community. With his most recent indictment of 13 Russian operatives and...

North Koreans tease nuclear weapons concessions. Should Trump believe them? North Koreans tease nuclear weapons concessions. Should Trump believe them?
After weeks of charm diplomacy during and immediately after the Pyeongchang Olympics, North Korea has now offered up a stunner: an offer to get rid of its nuclear weapons entirely if the Korean standoff can somehow be ended and the nation’s security guaranteed. And in another, even bigger stunner, President Trump himself has agreed to meet with North Korean President Kim Jong Un — by May. The w...

Here's a new, compassionate idea for dealing with illegal immigration. Here's a new, compassionate idea for dealing with illegal immigration.
While the debate over immigration rages on the national stage, a key piece of the solution may actually be much more American, reflecting the best of the American spirit. Proposals have been put forward that call for securing the borders and modernizing the legal immigration process — both good steps — but the biggest point of contention remains over what to do with the millions of illegal immi...

Trump's military parade obsession: Appearances, not strength, matter to our president. Trump's military parade obsession: Appearances, not strength, matter to our president.
The day after President Trump accused Democrats who didn’t clap for him at the State of the Union of treason, The Washington Post reported that the Pentagon, on Trump’s orders, is planning a military parade modeled after the Bastille Day parade Trump witnessed in Paris last summer. If Trump gets his way, the parade will take place on the Fourth of July, in downtown Washington and for no good reaso...

What it will take to fight the opioid epidemic: Sens. Roy Blunt and Shelley Capito. What it will take to fight the opioid epidemic: Sens. Roy Blunt and Shelley Capito.
Every day, 115 people die from an opioid overdose. It now surpasses motor vehicle accidents as the number one accidental cause of death in the nation. It is an epidemic that has impacted people of all ages and backgrounds, in communities in our states and across the nation. Take, for example, the 16-year-old high school cheerleader from Springfield, Missouri, who was prescribed pain medication...

A year later, Trump has made his own 'American carnage'. A year later, Trump has made his own 'American carnage'.
In his inauguration address one year ago Saturday, President Trump described a bleak America of failing education, rusting factories and free-roaming gangs. The speech was a vast exaggeration, or as former president George W. Bush was overheard calling it, “some weird s--t.” But Trump was adamant, declaring: “This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.” A year into the Trump pre...

Readers on #Oprah2020: Oprah's speech opened my eyes. Readers on #Oprah2020: Oprah's speech opened my eyes.
Letter to the editor: After hearing Oprah Winfrey speak at the Golden Globes on Sunday, I realized that the only mantra for Democrats — or any forward-thinking political party — should be: We are one. Winfrey’s inclusiveness of men and women in the fight against sexual harassment on all levels was strong and inspiring. This is just one issue facing our country today that has recently exploded. ...

Bitcoin boom makes other bubbles look tame. Bitcoin boom makes other bubbles look tame.
Throughout history, investment bubbles have emerged around things such as tulips, uranium, real estate, dot-coms and housing debt. But perhaps none is crazier than the recent panic buying of bitcoin. Even after a late-December swoon, the price of a single bitcoin ended 2017 at nearly $14,000. That’s a fourteenfold increase from where it started the year, this at a time when usage of bitcoin for...
