Opinion: Pardoning Snowden indefensible

Opinion: Thanksgiving Day under assault

We live in a time of heedless iconoclasm, and so one of the country’s oldest traditions is under assault. Thanksgiving is increasingly portrayed as, at best, based on falsehoods and, at worst, a...

Opinion: 'Legal votes' include Joe Biden's

Opinion: Democrats not in position of strength

Ordinarily, it’s not possible for a party to win the presidency and have a bad election night, but the Democrats managed it. Pending the outcome of two Senate runoffs in Georgia, Joe Biden looks...

Opinion: Trump will stay politically relevant

Opinion: Biden plan assault on common sense

Opinion: Barrett unlikely to throw out ACA

Amy Coney Barrett has accomplished many things in her career. Becoming an authority or a policy maker on healthcare isn’t one of them. At Notre Dame, she was a professor at the law school, not at...

Opinion: Barrett not scary as left believes

The Supreme Court fight of the century is, so far, a fizzle. The ratio of progressive outrage over the nomination of federal Judge Amy Coney Barrett to supposed reasons that the U.S. Senate...

Opinion: Trump needs plan for healthcare

“If you want to make God laugh,” Woody Allen once famously said, paraphrasing a Yiddish proverb, “tell him about your plans.” That’s not an issue for President Donald Trump, at least not on...

Opinion: Vulnerability of Trump's own making

The latest hammer of a book to fall on President Donald Trump is Bob Woodward’s soon-to-be-released “Rage,” and it’s his own words that are the issue. According to the book, the president...

Opinion: Riots, looting aren't Trump's fault

Opinion: Biden not as moderate as you think

Opinion: Spread of QAnon conspiracy theories not good for GOP

Opinion: Harris has constitutional problems
