On our family coffee table is the book “Phoenix, Now vs. Then.” It compares photos of various local locations now and 40 years ago. My recent experience in China reminded me of that book. I participated in one of the first American cultural exchanges with China 40 years ago. Our host counterparts were ambitious young Chinese leaders who demonstrated an insatiable curiosity about America, both o...

How America went from Barack Obama to Donald Trump in one head-spinning political decade How America went from Barack Obama to Donald Trump in one head-spinning political decade
How did we get from Barack Obama to Donald Trump? The two presidents seem so dissimilar that it’s tempting to conclude they come from separate worlds. But in important ways, Obama set the stage for Trump. To say the two men brought incredibly different approaches to the presidency is a dramatic understatement. Throughout his two terms, Obama governed with a deep respect for government instituti...

White House: We're ready to bring an end to surprise medical bills, is Congress? White House: We're ready to bring an end to surprise medical bills, is Congress?
After weeks of inactivity, lawmakers have returned home for Thanksgiving where they will get hit with another round of ads from the swamp’s special-interest moneymakers who value profits more than patients. They need to listen to Drew Calver’s story and hear how some tried to turn a medical emergency into a financial killing. Earlier this year, President Donald Trump stood with Drew and his wif...

The Republican Party must choose between Donald Trump and the party's fundamental values The Republican Party must choose between Donald Trump and the party's fundamental values
This is the stark political reality: on Thursday not a single House Republican voted for the resolution formalizing the inquiry into the impeachment of Donald Trump. Congressman Justin Amash, who left the GOP this year, reminded his colleagues that Trump will only be in power for a short time, “but excusing his misbehavior will forever tarnish your name.” He appealed to Republicans to step out ...

Behind the scenes at Dover Air Force Base — where casualties of America's wars come home Behind the scenes at Dover Air Force Base — where casualties of America's wars come home
DOVER AIR FORCE BASE, Delaware — There is no room for mistakes here. The flag-draped silver case with a soldier’s body must be carried slowly down the ramp of a U.S. Air Force cargo plane. No tilting. No slipping. The final uniform jacket worn to the grave must be wrinkle free, the pants' creases razor sharp, with all rank insignias, stripes and tiny oak leaf clusters perfectly placed. And for ...

If Congress doesn't stand up to Trump on Ukraine, his abuse of power will only escalate If Congress doesn't stand up to Trump on Ukraine, his abuse of power will only escalate
One of the vital lessons I learned as an undercover CIA officer, and later as an adviser to Republicans in Congress, was how corrupt leaders escalate their abuses of power at the expense of their citizens’ freedom while trying to retain power. It motivated my service at the time and continues to drive my work to protect and improve American democracy now. It also informs my grave concern about rec...

Guns are a huge part of American society; taking them away won't help: Today's talker Guns are a huge part of American society; taking them away won't help: Today's talker
Gun control is not the answer to America's gun violence. In the recent mass shootings, the shooters purchased their weapons legally. Likewise, the policies promoted by gun control activists would not impact mass shootings. Last year, the RAND Corp. conducted a survey of academic research and did not find any of the policies they looked at would reduce mass shootings: “We found no qualifying studie...
