Bridging The Gap
Hey, guess what? Donald Trump has a good foreign policy idea Hey, guess what? Donald Trump has a good foreign policy idea
The Trump administration’s foreign policy often resembles a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party or a loose cannon on a ship deck. But every now and then, a good idea emerges from the fracas. Such is the case with a reform that could sharply reduce America’s piety exports. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is revising the State Department mission statement to focus on promoting “the security, prosperity...

Donald Trump can notch a win on NAFTA if he smartens up Donald Trump can notch a win on NAFTA if he smartens up
Hallelujah! The White House’s position about the North American Free Trade Agreement is finally on the record. On Monday, July 17, the U.S. government released a 17-page document entitled “Summary of Objectives for the NAFTA Renegotiation.” The list of demands includes the following: the need to examine “non-tariff barriers that constrain U.S. exports to NAFTA countries,” remove “non-tariff bar...

Let Donald Trump fire Jeff Sessions Let Donald Trump fire Jeff Sessions
Jeff Sessions is already staking claim as the most dangerous attorney general for civil rights and civil liberties in modern history. And if President Trump wants to fire him, then we should let him. Sessions wields more power over everyday Americans than any other Trump Cabinet official. He has provided the legal backing for Trump’s extremist immigration policies and discriminatory travel ban....

No Insurance, but for 3 Days, Health Care Is Within Reach No Insurance, but for 3 Days, Health Care Is Within Reach
WISE, Va. — For a man who needed 18 teeth pulled, Daniel Smith was looking chipper. Anxious, too, for he was facing a pair of forceps. But Smith, 30, a contractor with no health or dental insurance, who hadn’t seen a dentist in more than 20 years, was looking forward to an imminent end to the pain and rot in his mouth. “I’ve always worked, since I was 14, but I’ve never had dental insurance,...

The one thing conservatives should love about Trump (besides Gorsuch) The one thing conservatives should love about Trump (besides Gorsuch)
We’re not building a wall, paid for by Mexico or otherwise. We’re not repealing Obamacare, whether by “root and branch” or any other means. We’re not draining the swamp, but the executive branch has become a rest home for wayward Goldman Sachs employees. We’re not repealing Obama’s executive amnesty. Heck, we’re not even gonna' “lock her up.” We’re not doing a lot of the things Trump promised c...

Trump budget would set back global AIDS fight just when we're on track to win it Trump budget would set back global AIDS fight just when we're on track to win it
When we started our HIV/AIDS Initiative at Saddleback Church 13 years ago, we reminded our congregation, “If you’re going to be like Jesus, you have to learn to be compassionate toward people when they’re sick.” Even in this time of tight budgets, America’s leaders should show precisely this kind of compassion for our brothers and sisters living with HIV and AIDS in Africa and around the world. ...

Donald Trump just sent a painful message to me and other LGBT people Donald Trump just sent a painful message to me and other LGBT people
June marked the fifth Pride Month since I came out in 2013 — and the first one to go unacknowledged by the president of the United States. The slight has hit hard, and not because lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people (LGBT) needed a reminder that our rights remain a political fixation. Rather, by withdrawing recognition from a group that has gained ground precisely by being recognized ...

An Attack on Congress and Baseball An Attack on Congress and Baseball
A congressman was shot early Wednesday morning while playing baseball with his colleagues in Virginia. The congressman, Steve Scalise, the majority whip of the House of Representatives, is in critical condition, and two other people were also critically wounded. It wasn’t just an attack on members of Congress and their staff and police protective details but on one of the few vestiges of bipartisa...

President Trump should move U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem President Trump should move U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem
When he visits Israel on Monday, President Trump will be in a nation on edge about a decision he needs to make by June 2. He has the opportunity to right a historical wrong by advancing international recognition of Jerusalem, the biblical capital of the Jewish people, as the capital of the State of Israel. Although Israel had declared Jerusalem its capital soon after the country achieved indepe...

Trump firing Comey demands fuller explanation Trump firing Comey demands fuller explanation
Ousted FBI Director James Comey has given people plenty of reason to question his judgment, particularly over his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation from last summer through the past week. But to abruptly dismiss an FBI director less than four years into his 10-year term — as President Trump did Tuesday — is an extraordinary action that should be based on extraordinary wrongdoi...
