Between ‘Appeasement’ And War, There Is A Third Way On North Korea

by Michael McFaulvia Global Times
Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Unfortunately, like many national security debates these days, our national discussion about how to address the growing North Korean threat has quickly become polarized between two extreme positions.

In reaction, Trump opponents have advocated the exact opposite - talks with Kim Jong-un.

Antonin Scalia, Legal Educator

by Adam J. Whitevia National Affairs
Thursday, September 21, 2017

"Who do you think I write my dissents for?" Justice Antonin Scalia posed the question to a reporter from New York magazine. In the course of a surprisingly candid 2013 interview, she had asked Scalia about the sharp tone of his judicial opinions, pressing him on the effect that his opinions might have on his colleagues. But Scalia pressed the reporter, in turn, to look beyond the Court for his true audience.

Another Reason To Love Charter Schools: Their Teachers Actually Show Up For Work

by Amber M. Northern, Michael J. Petrillivia Fox News
Thursday, September 21, 2017

Like everyone else, educators must occasionally miss work. They and their kids get the flu, too.

by Lanhee J. Chenvia Townhall
Thursday, September 21, 2017

After several unsuccessful attempts this year, Republicans have one last chance to deliver on their seven-year old promise to repeal and replace ObamaCare. Legislation recently introduced by Senators Lindsey Graham, Bill Cassidy, Dean Heller and Ron Johnson eliminates some of ObamaCare’s most unpopular provisions and enacts reforms that will help to lower costs, expand choices, promote federal fiscal responsibility, and put power back in the hands of states and consumers.

What's The Story?

featuring Shelby Steelevia The Weekly Standard
Monday, September 25, 2017

If I were a Republican strategist, which I’m pleased to say I’m not, I would pay especial attention to Shelby Steele’s op-ed “Why the Left Can’t Let Go of Racism” in the August 27 issue of the Wall Street Journal. Toward the close of his article, Steele writes that “the great problem for conservatives is that they lack the moral glibness to compete with liberalism’s ‘innocence’ ”—innocence, in this case, from the evil of racism and social injustice generally. Steele then goes on briefly to suggest that “reality” should be the “informing vision” of conservatism.”
