Bridging The Gap
Pakistan another terror ground zero: David Andelman Pakistan another terror ground zero: David Andelman
Half a world away from Belgium, terror and death have hit another American ally and where the stakes are even higher. This time, the target was Pakistan — a suicide bomb ripping through a Christian Easter celebration in the heart of Lahore, capital city of the Punjab, killing scores, wounding hundreds. It was a powerful and direct message to Pakistan, which unlike Belgium, likely has the world’s f...

Carly Fiorina: Ted Cruz can stop Donald Trump and Hillary Clinto Carly Fiorina: Ted Cruz can stop Donald Trump and Hillary Clinto
I ran for president because I believe it is time to take our country back from Washington and restore power to the people. I still believe that. In fact, I believe it more than ever. It is time to challenge and reform the system that has put too much economic and political power in the hands of too few. It is time to put a real constitutional conservative in the White House. My husband and I li...

Democrats are blowing it again: Jill Lawrence Democrats are blowing it again: Jill Lawrence
It’s an axiom of the TV news business that if it bleeds, it leads, so it’s no surprise that the bloodletting within the Republican Party is at the top of the charts these days. It’s also true that good news is hardly considered news at all, even when it affects millions of people and undermines a core argument in a presidential race. That is the case with the new Bureau of Labor Statistics repo...

Islamic State's money problems: Column Islamic State's money problems: Column
Once famous for being the richest terrorist group in the world, the Islamic State, variously known as IS, ISIL and Daesh, now faces considerable money problems. Coalition airstrikes, economic downturns in both Iraq and Syria and historically low global oil prices have combined to hit the group where it hurts the most — the bottom line. Coalition successes in countering ISIL financing owe primar...

Republicans' defensive debates miss Pentagon problems: Column Republicans' defensive debates miss Pentagon problems: Column
How can the next president keep America safe? When asked this question in Thursday night’s debate, the Republican presidential candidates largely ignored a necessary answer: Combat the rampant wasteful spending at the Department of Defense. If Republicans are willing to look, there are many places where the Pentagon can reform how it spends taxpayers’ hard-earned money. This could potentially f...

Obama's failing record on drones: Column Obama's failing record on drones: Column
President Obama is on pace to leave a flawed legacy on America’s use of drones. Near the midway point of the president’s second term, a task force of senior military and intelligence officials from the Obama, George W. Bush and Clinton administrations recommended eight steps that would make America’s drone policy more transparent, accountable and consistent with long-term U.S. national security go...

" 'Trust us with more data,’ say government agencies hacked by a 16-year-old.” That's the headline on a piece by TechDirt’s Tim Cushing. The aforementioned teen managed, as Cushing reports, to “dive into the servers of two of America's most secure federal agencies and fish out their internal files. This 16-year-old is allegedly part of the same crew that socially engineered their way into the inbo...

Anti-Semitism thriving in Europe Anti-Semitism thriving in Europe
Anti-Semitism is thriving in Europe, so it was no surprise to hear the news last month of record-setting Jewish migration to Israel in 2015. It is a trend that should concern European leaders, who should be asking how they have fueled this scourge. Indeed, the issue raises an extremely troubling question -- more than 70 years after the Holocaust, has Europe really changed? Take, for example, th...

His acts of integrity were incredibly important to me in my beco His acts of integrity were incredibly important to me in my beco
Justice Antonin Scalia was an “originalist” committed to interpreting the Constitution in the way it would have been understood at the time it was adopted. He was also a conservative who was, as any of us are regardless of our politics, committed to particular outcomes that he hoped the law would support. Sometimes that originalism would conflict with conservatism. As a clerk for Scalia in the...

639 22  Obama's liberal Republican budget: Column 639 22 Obama's liberal Republican budget: Column
Finally, President Obama has proposed a federal budget that hints at the optimistic promise of hope and change he rode to election victory in 2008. Still, his last budget does not call for the sweeping remake of federal spending priorities that many Americans, whether they voted for Obama or not, expected in his first budget blueprint. The new plan recognizes the growing threat from cyber warfa...
