Trump's move to end Iran nuclear deal makes America less safe Trump's move to end Iran nuclear deal makes America less safe
The agreement provides visibility into Iran’s capabilities and actions. Backing out of it has devastating implications for U.S. and world security. After months of bombastic pandering to his base, President Trump took the first step towards dismantling the Iran nuclear deal — an agreement years in the making that prevents Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, making the region and the United St...

Senator: Rising debt is greatest national security threat. Here's how to fix it. Senator: Rising debt is greatest national security threat. Here's how to fix it.
The single greatest threat to our national security is our national debt. Last month, the debt topped $20 trillion. This should have sounded alarms throughout Washington. However, it went largely unnoticed and today it’s still business as usual. Washington is on track to rack up another $11 trillion in debt over the next decade, and there’s another $100 trillion in future unfunded liabilities ...

President Trump is running out of time to score all those wins he promised President Trump is running out of time to score all those wins he promised
The president does dominate the news, which diverts attention from investigations and legislative failures. But that kind of winning won't help the GOP in the 2018 midterms. As a candidate, Donald Trump famously promised a series of legislative victories. “We're going to win so much, you're going to get tired of winning,” he said in February 2016. “You’re going to say: ‘Please, Mr. President, I...

Treat Puerto Rico hurricane like rebuilding Iraq and Afghanistan Treat Puerto Rico hurricane like rebuilding Iraq and Afghanistan
Today, several thousand Coast Guard and other U.S. military personnel are busy helping Puerto Rico’s 3.4 million inhabitants, with patriotism and courage and compassion and grit. But the overall approach might be best described as a modest response to a disaster. At a time when so many American citizens are suffering, we need to consider a much more massive effort. The issue here has nothing...

Trump shouldn't reconsider fuel economy standards. Hurricane Harvey shows why. Trump shouldn't reconsider fuel economy standards. Hurricane Harvey shows why.
The Trump administration’s decision to reconsider 2025 car and truck fuel economy standards feels like déjà vu all over again. We’ve been here before, and the results were not pretty. I sell cars. My family has been in the car business for more than 80 years. One of the hardest financial times we have ever had was when the price of oil spiked and stayed high beginning in 2004. Our domestic deal...

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...
