Bridging The Gap
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...

Protect our troops, not Wall Street: Column Protect our troops, not Wall Street: Column
President Trump won the election by appealing to blue collar, working-class voters desperate for a change from the norms of Washington. “I'm not going to let Wall Street get away with murder,” he said in January 2016. “Wall Street has caused tremendous problems for us.” Wall Street and predatory lenders are assuming that rhetoric was all for show, and they were no doubt heartened by Trump’s ste...

Don't panic about 'alternative facts': Column Don't panic about 'alternative facts': Column
Since Donald Trump upended everything we thought we knew about politics, hands have been wrung and ink has been spilled about the "post-factual age." How could the candidate with the worst Politifact rating in the 2016 campaign come out on top? How could fake news cause a man to shoot up a pizzeria in a quiet Washington neighborhood? How could the Trump administration claim its new press secretary...

Trump's 'trust me' trust: Our view Trump's 'trust me' trust: Our view
President-elect Donald Trump, in his first news conference in six months, laid out plans Wednesday for how he'd avoid conflicts of interest while maintaining a far-flung business empire. He will place his company in a trust to be managed by two of his sons. Count us unimpressed. The word “trust” in this case is an artifice. Trump is not actually divesting himself of anything. He, and the rest o...

The golden era of anti-knowledge: Christian Schneider The golden era of anti-knowledge: Christian Schneider
Shortly before his death in 1983, eccentric futurist Buckminster Fuller introduced what he called the "knowledge-doubling curve" to describe the rapid acceleration of human knowledge. Fuller estimated that before 1900, humanity's cognitive database doubled every century; after World War II, the doubling of knowledge occurred after every 25 years. But with technological advances, recent studies sug...
