Bridging The Gap
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...

Hillary Clinton's woman problem: Column Hillary Clinton's woman problem: Column
Bernie Sanders has captured the hearts of millennial voters with his inspirational and emotional promise to bring the nation “a future to believe in.” Although 74-year-old Sanders is a lifelong politician, his off-the-beaten-path campaign and perpetually disheveled aesthetic seem to be just the fresh (if wrinkled) face many young Democrats are looking for. That's even true of the women and part...

Are F-35s fit for combat? Pentagon doesn't know Are F-35s fit for combat? Pentagon doesn't know
Washington The military risks committing itself to buying billions of dollars of F-35 fighter jets before they have demonstrated they are fit for combat, a new Pentagon report warns. The development of the Joint Strike Fighter F-35, a fifth-generation stealth jet, has been beset by spiraling costs and schedule delays. The program's price tag is nearly $400 billion for 2,457 planes -- almost twi...

Donald Trump bid badly wounded in Iowa Donald Trump bid badly wounded in Iowa
Donald Trump must be very disappointed to discover that three quarters of Iowa Republicans are weak, low energy and have no interest in making America great again. The rest of the country, meanwhile, has been reminded that the Iowa caucus is a cruel thing to navigate. Many a high-profile, nationally popular campaign has been destroyed on those rocks. Trump's ship isn't sunk, but it'll be taking on...

Bernie’s Revolution vs. Hillary’s Getting Things Done Bernie’s Revolution vs. Hillary’s Getting Things Done
Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are locked in an intense, occasionally nasty, policy battle — a fight finally being put to its first voter test today in Iowa. One advocates a single-payer health care system (Mr. Sanders), the other is attacking his plan to make it a reality (Mrs. Clinton). One refuses to raise taxes on the middle class (Mrs. Clinton), the other is O.K. with doing so in order to...
