Bridging The Gap
Private sector has health care cures, if we'd only get out of its way: Steve Forbes Private sector has health care cures, if we'd only get out of its way: Steve Forbes
Who knows what — if anything — Senate Republicans will do about health care reform. But there is a fundamental truth that is being overlooked in all the hyperbolic rhetoric over Medicaid, mandates, subsidies, accessibility and taxes: Free markets would turn our ailing healthcare system into a dynamic, innovative cornucopia of better and ever more affordable care for all of us. We'll see if Wash...

James Comey is no showboat James Comey is no showboat
“I wonder what her story is,” FBI Director James Comey said to no one in particular as our motorcade rolled through Lower Manhattan, past an elderly woman on a bench embracing a swaddled child. “Everyone has a story and I bet her story is incredible.” This was not an unusual musing from our now departed leader — a giant of a man with an even bigger heart, whose focus was always on trying to ...

Donald Trump can strengthen America by dumping Paris agreement: Sen. Inhofe Donald Trump can strengthen America by dumping Paris agreement: Sen. Inhofe
In light of his recent travels abroad and ensuing affirmations of America’s partnership moving forward, President Trump is now set to make a decision as to whether he will withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement. The Paris Agreement was a false promise from the start, committing the United States to an unattainable 26-28% reduction by 2025. This commitment, and remaining in ...

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...
