It Doesn't Get Any Easier for Republicans Now  

Russell Berman, The Atlantic“In a way I’m glad I got it out of the way,” President Trump told the Washington Post last week in the moments after he and Republican leaders in Congress pulled the plug on their first major legislative priority, repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act.

The Ugly History Behind Trump's Attacks on Civil Servants  

Landon Storrs, PoliticoLast week, as the House Intelligence Committee questioned FBI Director James Comey, it was as if two parallel hearings were taking place: one on Russian meddling in the 2016 election, and one on the torrent of leaks emanating from sources throughout the federal government—what President Donald Trump’s allies are calling the “deep state.”

Can We Slow Global Warming and Still Grow?  

J.B. MacKinnon, The New YorkerOn March 17th, the International Energy Agency announced that 2016 marked the third year in a row that global carbon emissions had stayed at the same level while the world’s economy grew. This three-time repeat has put to rest any lingering suspicions of gremlins in the data. Something new is happening. The global economy has now grown nearly ten per cent without any increase in the annual CO2 emissions that are the principal human contribution to climate cha

The False Compassion of Liberalism  

Stephen Moore, Investor's Business DailyLast week on CNN I debated a liberal commentator who complained that the problem with President Donald Trump's budget blueprint is that it lacks "compassion" for the poor, for children and for the disabled. This woman went on to ask me how I could defend a budget that would cut Meals on Wheels, after-school programs and special-education funding, because without the federal dollars, these vital services would go away.

A Strong Antidote to the Myth of "Postracial" America  

Brent Staples, New York TimesThe touchstone scene in the new horror film “Get Out” depicts a 20-something white woman named Rose appraising the sculpted torsos of black athletes on a laptop as she sits in her bedroom sipping milk through a straw. In another context — say, in the popular HBO television series “Girls” — this would be an unremarkable example of a millennial catching a glimpse of beefcake on the way to bed.

Presidential Leadership Is What Was Missing  

Jay Nordlinger, National Review OnlineYears ago, the Senior Tour was described as life's mulligan. I'm talking about golf. A mulligan, of course, is a do-over — an extra shot.When it comes to health-care reform, I hope the Republicans will take a mulligan. And I hope they will hit the ball straight and true.Something as mighty as health-care reform — the repeal and replacement of Obamacare — takes persuasion. You have to go out and tell people why your plan is better for them.

A Tactical Clusterflunk: 7 Years In and Ryan Wasn't Ready  

Kurt Schlichter, TownhallBut what did we get? A tactical clusterflunk. Seven years in and Ryan wasn’t ready. He putzed around with no sense of urgency until there was a sense of urgency. Who was expecting this dog’s breakfast to drop when it did? And it just dropped on us out of the blue – one day, suddenly, there’s this whole plan out there. Surprise! I listened to Hugh Hewitt the morning after it was released; he was stunned that he couldn’t get any of the Republ

Islamists Have Everything to Do With Islam  

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Defining IdeasIt is refreshing and heartening that President Trump acknowledges the need for an ideological campaign against “radical Islam.” This deserves to be called a paradigm shift. President Bush often referred to a “war on terror,” but terror is a tactic that can be used for a variety of ideological objectives. President Obama stated that he was opposed to “violent extremism” and even organized an international summit around this subje

The Democrats Must Filibuster Neil Gorsuch  

Lithwick & Mott, SlateAfter four days of marathon hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has announced that Democrats will filibuster the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Under current Senate rules, 60 votes are required to stop a filibuster and proceed to an up-or-down vote requiring only a simple majority. With 52 seats under Republican control, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has two options if he wants to get Gorsuch throug

To Win Again, Dems Must Stop Being the Abortion Party  

Thomas Groome, NY TimesWhen I came to this country from Ireland some 45 years ago, a cousin, here 15 years before, advised me that Catholics vote Democratic. Having grown up in the Irish Republic, I was well disposed to Republican Party principles like local autonomy and limited government. Yet a commitment to social justice, so central to my faith, seemed better represented by the Democratic Party. I followed my cousin’s good counsel.

14 Lessons From the Republican Obamacare Disaster  

Byron York, DC ExaminerThe Obamacare train wreck was a failure for President Trump and a disaster for House Republicans. That is, it was worse for Republicans, because they had been at it for so long, but it was plenty bad for Trump. When Speaker Paul Ryan pulled the GOP repeal-and-replace bill Friday afternoon, he said, We will need time to reflect on how we got to this moment. For that reflection, here, in no particular order, are 14 lessons from the Obamacare debacle: 1) Don't over-promise.

How Trump Can Change the Conversation With African Americans  

Ed Rogers, WPWhen President Trump met with leaders of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) this week, I was reminded of a fantasy I had during the 2016 campaign that involved then-candidate Trump shaking up the status quo and starting a different conversation with a new generation of African Americans. I imagined Trump, microphone in hand, standing in the streets of some of the poorest, most crime-ridden inner-city neighborhoods, asking young African Americans, “Who do you think wants you

The Trouble With Liberals Alleging 'Everyone Is Racist'  

Daniel Payne, The FederalistOne of the more pervasive assumptions of modern American society, particularly in my generation, is the notion that “everyone is racist,” “society” has made everyone racist, and—most importantly—much of this racism is “implicit” or “subconscious,” something that isn’t directly observable but nonetheless real.

Stop Blaming. Start Governing.  

Michael Bloomberg, BloombergWho’s to blame for the failure of the Republican bill to repeal and replace Obamacare? Who cares? What matters now is that Democrats stop gloating, Republicans stop sulking, and each party come to the table to improve a health-care system that both parties agree needs work.

The King of Crash and Burn  

Charles Blow, New York TimesIn the movie “Iron Man 2” (yes, superhero films are my guilty pleasure, so just bear with me) the villain, a rogue Russian scientist, informs the hero, Iron Man, of his theory on how easily he could be brought down: “If you could make God bleed, people will cease to believe in Him. There will be blood in the water, and the sharks will come. All I have to do is sit here and watch, as the world will consume you.”
