What Should We Fight For?

By Patrick Buchanan "We will never accept Russia's occupation and attempted annexation of Crimea," declaimed Rex Tillerson last week in Vienna. "Crimea-related sanctions will remain in place until Russia returns full control of the peninsula to Ukraine." Tillerson's principled rejection of the seizure of land by military force -- "never accept" -- came just one day after President Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and pledged to move our embassy there. How did Israel gain title to East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Golan Heights? Invasion, occupation, colonization, annexation. Those lands are the... ...read more Read more here: What Should ...

In a CNN interview where he said that Roy Moore "probably" believes homosexuality should be illegal, campaign spokesman Ted Crockett learns a civics lesson from Jake Tapper. JAKE TAPPER, CNN: Judge Moore has said that he doesn't think a Muslim member of Congress should be allowed to be in Congress. Why? Under what part of the Constitution?

“They’re not on the same team”: why Trump’s lawyers keep clashing over the Russia probe

By Alex Ward Here's a simple guide to the various lawyers representing President Trump. President Donald Trump's lawyers have spent the past few weeks making conflicting statements about how they would defend against special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into possible Trump-Russia ties, causing many to wonder just who is actually in charge of representing the president. Here's just one example: After reports suggesting Trump fired FBI Director James Comey because he wouldn't end the Trump-Russia probe, Trump's top personal lawyer, John Dowd, made a controversial claim that the president cannot obstruct justice. Why? Because Trump is the president and is ...

Moore Campaign Spokesman: Roy Moore “Probably” Believes Homosexuality Should Be Illegal

On the evening of the Alabama special election, CNN's Jake Tapper spared with Roy Moore spokesman Ted Crockett about the Republican Senate candidate's views on gay marriage. After playing a clip of Moore saying that homosexual conduct should be illegal in 2005, the CNN host asked the campaign spokesman if those are still the candidate's views. "Probably," Crockett replied. He declined to say what the punishment would be. "It is just a sin, it is what my Bible tells me. Old Testament and the New Testament! That's what this is about." "You people want to take the whole 2,000 or ...

Simeon Booker, a Courageous and Persistent Advocate of Truth

By Eugene Robinson WASHINGTON -- The great Simeon Booker, one of the bravest journalists of our time, faced dangers far worse than a petulant president's social media feed. Booker refused to be cowed -- and ultimately helped change the nation. His life's work should be a lesson to us all about the power of truth to vanquish evil. Booker died Sunday at 99. At the height of his career, few could have imagined he would live so long. As Washington bureau chief for the Chicago-based Johnson Publications, publisher of the newsweekly Jet and the monthly magazine Ebony, Booker went to ...

Trump's Chief of Staff Is on Alert for 'Contraband Newsprint' and Other Hijinks

By Richard Cohen NEW YORK -- In August, Donald Trump asked for a certain newspaper clipping, thus throwing the White House went into the Trump version of DEFCON 2. Chief of Staff John F. Kelly dispatched two aides to investigate how the clipping had gotten to the president without being "cleared." These aides, anonymous but clearly brave, determined that Keith Schiller, a former New York City cop and Trump's longtime body man, had slipped the "contraband newsprint" to the commander in chief. Soon, Schiller was gone from the White House. Kelly, a former Marine general but an American Sniper at ...

NBC's Chuck Todd said Tuesday a Roy Moore loss would be a "bullet dodged" for the Republican party in the long term.

Todd's commentary on the Alabama U.S. Senate race: CHUCK TODD: This is part of this fight for the soul of what the Republican party is. Is the Republican party, looking backwards or going forwards here? I would look at as it's as if ...

By eschor@politico.com (Elana Schor) All but four of the Senate's 48 Democrats on Tuesday warned congressional GOP leaders against pursuing a government funding plan that would boost defense spending for the rest of the fiscal year while leaving domestic priorities at current levels.In a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), 44 Democratic senators urged the Republican leaders to "keep your commitment to the bipartisan budget negotiations and forego any plans to consider partisan legislation" that would lift budget caps for the Pentagon while leaving domestic programs static.Some Senate Democrats began pushing back last ...

House Democratic Women’s Working Group Calls For Investigation Into President Trump Abuse Allegations

Several Democratic members of the House of Representatives hold a news briefing regarding sexual misconduct allegations against President Trump. Rep. Lois Frankel, the chair of the working group, said about their goals: "The Oversight Committee has very broad jurisdiction -- I don't have to remind everybody of the Whitewater investigation many years ago, when President Clinton was investigated for matters outside his presidency."

What Roy Moore actually believes about policy

By Dylan Scott On health care, abortion, immigration, and more. If Roy Moore is elected to the Senate on Tuesday, he'll enter office under a cloud of credible sexual accusations, facing the suggestion by some of his peers that he should be expelled from the chamber and carrying his promise to the Alabama voters that he would stand up to Republican leaders. But then he'll have to start taking real votes that will actually change federal policy. As one of the 52 Republican senators, Moore would have outsized power to shape the Republican agenda. Obamacare repeal and tax reform have ...

'Darkest Hour' Proves That History Can Hinge on a Single Leader

By Michael Gerson WASHINGTON -- The Winston Churchill biopic "Darkest Hour" is a movie that should be seen, but not entirely believed. Gary Oldman's alternately fierce and vulnerable Churchill is a triumph of both acting and the cosmetician's art. Just hearing him deliver snippets of Churchill's speeches is worth the ticket price. (Am I the only one who tears up at the words "We shall fight on the beaches"? My wife: "Probably.") But the central conceit of the film -- that a deflated, defeated Churchill required bucking up by average Brits -- is a fiction. Very nearly the opposite was ...

Scrooges, ranked

By Todd VanDerWerff 15 takes on A Christmas Carol's main character, ranked from Jim Carrey to Mr. Magoo. Few fictional characters have been portrayed onscreen as often as Ebenezer Scrooge, the hero and villain of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol. Really, the list comes down to Scrooge, Dracula, and Sherlock Holmes, all British literary characters who've been warped and twisted in all directions to fit whatever context a given narrative demands. IMDB lists 135 separate instances of someone playing Scrooge in one work or another — and that's to say nothing of characters who are clearly riffs on Scrooge, or ...

Whom Do We Thank for Today's Strong Economy?

By Froma Harrop A president deserves partial credit for a strong economy. The current economic numbers are good, so to the extent that gratitude is due, let us offer it. Thank you, President Obama. The economic gauges have been improving steadily for the eight years of the current recovery. Barack Obama was president for seven of them. As the first year of the Donald Trump presidency draws to a close, the economy's growth has continued -- but it has not accelerated in a meaningful way. In the world as presented by the tweetmaster himself, Trump has already delivered on the ...

Robert Mueller is looking into 3 big questions about Trump and Flynn’s firing

By Andrew Prokop And they relate to what, exactly, Donald Trump knew about Flynn's actions. The White House narrative about why former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was fired has long had some curious holes — and special counsel Robert Mueller's team is stepping up his efforts to fill them in. NBC News's Carol Lee and Julia Ainsley reported Monday that Mueller's team has asked several current or former White House staffers “to go through each day that Flynn remained as national security adviser and describe in detail what they knew was happening inside the White House as it related ...
