When we think about terrorism we most often think about the horrors of a Manchester-like attack, where a radicalized suicide bomber went into a concert hall and killed dozens of innocent civilians. It was an inexcusable act of savagery and it certainly did terrorize the population.
All civil libertarians, whether Democrat or Republican, should be concerned about the fishing net given to Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
When in the Senate chamber, Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican, sits by choice at the desk used by the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan. New York's scholar-senator would have recognized that Sasse has published a book of political philosophy in the form of a guide to parenting.
Readers who have followed me over the years know I’m an enthusiastic supporter of the foster parent system. At the same time, I’m not a Pollyanna regarding the very real challenges that face foster parents.
Like most Americans, I have my objections to Trump. But one reason the opposition to him has so far failed is that a lot of people think that it is made up of an insular and narrow elite that wants to sentence Trump before he gets a trial, or even faces charges.
In the special election for Montana's at-large Congressional seat (vacated by Ryan Zinke, who became President Trump's Secretary of the Interior), the voters have spoken: Republican Greg Gianforte won by six points, or 50.2 percent.
This issue has nothing to do with being transgender, and everything to do with institutions breaking protocols, yet coyly trying to play both sides.
The track record for First Lady legacies isn't encouraging. Jackie Kennedy redecorated the White House and then we had a long, dry spell. Ladybird Johnson talked about beautifying highways, but I can't recall if the effort was confined to Texas or was nationwide.
The attack in Manchester, England underscores that Europe is under assault from jihadist enemies within. Large numbers of them have been sent there by Islamist Turkey, a NATO ally increasingly in name only.
How many of the lofty writers for mainstream rags had to fight their own way out of poverty and broken homes to end up at the heights of their profession?
Well it's nice to see our elites are in such good humor about something so grave. If there truly was treason, it's no joking matter. If there was not, then this man's name is being tarnished unfairly. Ha. Ha.
Rush Limbaugh a couple of weeks ago said he was laughing over Trump's "epic troll" of the Democrats by firing FBI Director James Comey (and meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov the next day). It was really the other way around. Trump wasn't the troller; he was the trollee.
On Sept. 1, 1864, Union forces under Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman, victorious at Jonesborough, burned Atlanta and began the March to the Sea where Sherman's troops looted and pillaged farms and towns all along the 300-mile road to Savannah.
For years, conservatives have felt aggrieved at what they believe is liberal bias on the part of reporters and editors in the mainstream media. I've been on the receiving end of negative news coverage over the years.
Literally and most plainly, it is simply someone who doesn't win some specific contest or challenge: the loser of a race, boxing match, business deal, etc. Economists routinely talk about how this or that policy — on trade, taxes, whatever — creates "winners and losers."
Demagoguery and propaganda are enemies of good governance, but nowhere is that more apparent than in the federal budget, on which Democrats are shameless and too many Republicans are feckless.
This week's bombing in Manchester was another gruesome reminder that the threat from radical Islamic terrorism is ongoing.
The quixotic American pursuit of Middle East peace is a perennial. It invariably fails, yet every administration feels compelled to give it a try. The Trump administration is no different.
The Manchester terror attack by an alleged Islamic State "soldier" will accelerate the push by the U.S. and its allies to capture the terror group's strongholds in Mosul and Raqqah. But it should also focus some urgent discussions about a post-ISIS strategy for stabilizing Iraq and Syria.
All politics is local, the cliché goes. But small races can have huge, national implications.
Researchers at the data security firm Check Point recently discovered a PC exploit — hacker-ese for an attack — that infiltrates devices in an ingenious way, through the subtitles playing at the bottom of the screen.
While I speak imperfect Hebrew and stubbornly repeat obscure "Seinfeld" references, I also bring several gifts to my adopted homeland. Should I be able to somehow synthesize the best of my American traditions with the best of Israel's culture, I will consider my Zionist excursion a success.
Fame is the biggest megaphone in the world. Celebrities can help prevent terrorism by encouraging a see something, say something among fans that will break the bonds politically correct resistance. If celebrities could be pushed to remove their multicultural blinders, they can help turn the tide.

Though Abbas tried to present a moderate stance to Donald Trump, the PA named public squares after terrorists Karim and Maher Younes, two Israeli Arab cousins convicted in the 1980 kidnapping and murder of an Israeli soldier. Both terrorists were sentenced to 40 years in jail.
