Bridging The Gap
The Republican Party must choose between Donald Trump and the party's fundamental values The Republican Party must choose between Donald Trump and the party's fundamental values
This is the stark political reality: on Thursday not a single House Republican voted for the resolution formalizing the inquiry into the impeachment of Donald Trump. Congressman Justin Amash, who left the GOP this year, reminded his colleagues that Trump will only be in power for a short time, “but excusing his misbehavior will forever tarnish your name.” He appealed to Republicans to step out ...

Behind the scenes at Dover Air Force Base — where casualties of America's wars come home Behind the scenes at Dover Air Force Base — where casualties of America's wars come home
DOVER AIR FORCE BASE, Delaware — There is no room for mistakes here. The flag-draped silver case with a soldier’s body must be carried slowly down the ramp of a U.S. Air Force cargo plane. No tilting. No slipping. The final uniform jacket worn to the grave must be wrinkle free, the pants' creases razor sharp, with all rank insignias, stripes and tiny oak leaf clusters perfectly placed. And for ...

If Congress doesn't stand up to Trump on Ukraine, his abuse of power will only escalate If Congress doesn't stand up to Trump on Ukraine, his abuse of power will only escalate
One of the vital lessons I learned as an undercover CIA officer, and later as an adviser to Republicans in Congress, was how corrupt leaders escalate their abuses of power at the expense of their citizens’ freedom while trying to retain power. It motivated my service at the time and continues to drive my work to protect and improve American democracy now. It also informs my grave concern about rec...

Guns are a huge part of American society; taking them away won't help: Today's talker Guns are a huge part of American society; taking them away won't help: Today's talker
Gun control is not the answer to America's gun violence. In the recent mass shootings, the shooters purchased their weapons legally. Likewise, the policies promoted by gun control activists would not impact mass shootings. Last year, the RAND Corp. conducted a survey of academic research and did not find any of the policies they looked at would reduce mass shootings: “We found no qualifying studie...

Republicans will kill your health care and, indirectly, maybe even you: Today's talker Republicans will kill your health care and, indirectly, maybe even you: Today's talker
There is no replacement for our care By EJ Montini There has been so much tawdry and titillating news this week, you may not have noticed that people you elected took another step toward killing your health care. And perhaps indirectly ... you. Republican attorneys general (supported by President Donald Trump) filed a lawsuit to kill the Affordable Care Act, a case heard this week by a fe...

Supreme Court ditches fairness, voter rights and the Constitution in gerrymandering ruling Supreme Court ditches fairness, voter rights and the Constitution in gerrymandering ruling
When voters go to the polls, they deserve to have their votes count equally. But for decades, politicians have rigged districts to boost the votes of their friends and dilute the votes of their enemies. Now a narrow majority of Supreme Court justices has given its blessing to blatant partisan gerrymandering where politicians choose their voters instead of voters choosing their politicians. Le...
