What’s the Alternative?
Anyone who criticizes our president's nuclear deal with Iran is bound to be asked: What's the alternative? With the clear implication that there isn't one -- not an acceptable one, anyway. It's either war or peace. A simple, black-and-white, all-or-none choice: It's the president's way or no way -- except war -- to prevent Iran from joining the nuclear club.
Defeating the Mortal Enemies
The enemy has to be defeated, U.S. Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter last week told American forces stationed in the Middle East. That is a simple truth, one that, regrettably, is not heard often from officials in the current administration. Mr. Carter then added: It will be, because the barbarians are always defeated by civilization. That is a comforting sentiment one that, regrettably, is not supported by historical evidence.
Dear GOPe, Take Two

In Seattle, Composting Outranks Privacy

5 Reasons Donald Trump's Run At The Presidency Is Good For The Republican Party
Over the last few weeks weve seen Republican consultants and pundits publicly fretting about whether Donald Trump will hurt the GOPs brand.
People who entered the United States illegally may be called "undocumented" in politically correct circles, but what is all too well documented is the utter irresponsibility of both political parties in dealing with immigration issues.
Obama Cronyism + Your Personal Data = Trouble
It's the most far-reaching scandal in Washington that no one wants to talk about: Tens of millions of federal employees had their personal information hacked as a result of Obama administration incompetence and political favoritism.
Governed by Zealots
The government's environmental rules defeat even environmentalists. Thomas Collier is a Democrat who managed environmental policy for Bill Clinton and Al Gore.

Walter E. Williams:
Cure for Racial Dishonesty
There have been several notable cases of racial fakery. Years ago, then-law professor Elizabeth "Fauxcahontas" Warren falsely claimed that her great-grandfather was Cherokee Indian. A diversity-starved Harvard University jumped at the opportunity to hire her. She was so good at the racial fakery that a 1997 Fordham Law Review article lauded now-Sen. Warren as Harvard Law School's "first woman of color."

Turkey and Syria: From Bluff to Buffer
After suffering two recent attacks by terrorists based in Syria, Turkey has ordered its military forces to prepare to enter Syria en masse and establish a "buffer zone." Turkey, seeking NATO-wide diplomatic affirmation for this risk-ridden decision, then demanded a NATO Article 4 consultation.
Harry R. Jackson, Jr.:
Healing the Urban Educational Gap
Shante had a lot of things going for her as she finished middle school. She was bright, attractive and talented. Her parents, Glenn and Sheri, had worked hard to ensure she could have a better life than they had had growing up. But both were uneasy with the public high school that Shante was zoned for in Prince Georges County. Although its the highest income majority-black county in the United States, it had a high school dropout rate more than 10 points higher than neighboring Montgomery County.

The Second Indictment of Dylann Roof Is Worse Than Redundant
Dylann Roof, the man charged with murdering nine people at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C., last month, faces execution or life imprisonment if he is convicted in state court. A federal indictment announced last week threatens him with the same penalties, although you can't kill a man more than once or lock him up for more than a lifetime.

The Reality of Abortion Exposed
"Unless you stand for something, you will fall for anything." Everyone is familiar with this famous quote, though its original origins are unknown. What is known is that the sentiment appeared in a prayer offered by Senate Chaplain Peter Marshall in 1947. "Our Father," Marshall prayed, "we yearn for a better understanding of spiritual things, that we may know surely what Thy will is for us and for our Nation. Give to us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything."
Ex-Im’s War on Coal
Lest you needed another reason to oppose the resurrection of the United States Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank, bureaucrats havent just been picking the winners and losers among American corporations but have also been taking it upon themselves to do the bidding of the Obama administration by helping wage their misguided War on Coal.
