Bridging The Gap
Germany falters on climate leadership Germany falters on climate leadership
After President Trump irresponsibly vowed in May to pull the United States out of the Paris climate agreement, German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared that other world powers would continue fighting the good fight against global warming. "We are more determined than ever that this be a success," Merkel later said of the accord, which employs voluntary reductions in greenhouse gas emissions to ...

New York unbowed by fresh terror attack. New York unbowed by fresh terror attack.
New York is a city of landmarks. For tourists, they serve as markers in an unfamiliar place. The Empire State Building — midtown. One World Trade Center — Lower Manhattan. The George Washington Bridge — uptown. To natives, these landmarks are more than geographical markers, because they symbolize the place where we work and live. It seemed fitting that Tuesday night found me walking across the ...

Pay even a little bit of attention to the news these days and you’ll likely come to a depressing conclusion: America is the most divided place on earth. With every new firestorm — football players kneeling during the national anthem, students protesting conservative speakers on college campuses, neo-Nazis marching in Charlottesville — our society seems to take one more step toward a breakdown. ...

Navy vet on Vegas shooting: We need gun laws that make us as safe as our military. Navy vet on Vegas shooting: We need gun laws that make us as safe as our military.
Every time a mass shooting happens we can depend on a few things. First, everyone will offer thoughts and prayers. Oddly those never seem to result in any action. Then, the left will come out and call for better laws and the political right will say that the country needs time to mourn. We’ve had time many times over to mourn as a country, and a nationwide discussion about our gun violence epid...

NFL protests: Donald Trump fumbles First Amendment football NFL protests: Donald Trump fumbles First Amendment football
Someone, please find Donald Trump a copy of the Constitution — preferably a simplified version with pictures and charts. Once he absorbs what it says, perhaps he will stop trying to tear it apart. Trump is angry at athletes for exercising their right to speech; but his anger did not begin there. Last February, at a campaign rally in Texas, Donald Trump spoke of "open(ing) up libel laws." He ne...

n Hurricane Irma's wake, 3 takeaways on the costs n Hurricane Irma's wake, 3 takeaways on the costs
Give anti-government rhetoric a rest The early response to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma has been encouraging. People around the country have offered their support. And, so far at least, the Federal Emergency Management Agency has not looked as inept as it did after Katrina in 2005. This is a good thing, because people suffering in Texas and Florida could use all the help they can get. And mayb...

Evangelicals squander their moral authority by sticking with Trump Evangelicals squander their moral authority by sticking with Trump
In the wake of President Trump’s waffling on white supremacy, his supporters and advisers have abandoned him in droves. After a wave of prominent CEOs defected from the president’s Manufacturing Council and Strategy & Policy Forum, Trump decided to disband both. On Friday morning, the entire President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities resigned. As their joint letter to Trump declared, “Ign...

“Voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your heritage.” These were the words spoken by former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke when he threw his support behind Donald Trump in February 2016 and urged other white Americans to do the same.

Jill: We can’t say we didn’t see it coming. Someone got forced out of the Trump administration, and it wasn't the communications director who unleashed an epic string of vulgar insults against the White House chief of staff that ended up in The New Yorker because the communications director didn't go off the record. No, the banished one was the hapless chief of staff, Reince Priebus. All that's...
