Death of the legislative branch: Presidents now make laws

In the wake of President Trump's somewhat aggressive executive orders on payroll taxes and unemployment payments this month, it is probably wise and useful to think about the nature of precedent. Published August 14, 2020

Biden losing momentum by playing prevent defense

Mr. Biden has placed himself in a position in which the slightest mistake or hiccup on his part, or the slightest bit of good news for the president may touch off a surge, even a modest one, for the president that may be dispositive. Published August 9, 2020

Why Biden's VP pick will matter so much

There is a good reason why former Vice President Joe Biden's selection of a running mate has become so freighted with emotion and expectation, and it is not just that the Democratic presidential nominee is not, shall we say, entirely and always there. Published July 31, 2020

Biden presidency would push expensive climate plan

Other than an enormously damaging and historically large tax increase, what else might Joe Biden do if elected president? It's a safe bet that climate and infrastructure are the next stops after tax increases. Published July 19, 2020

Trump can win. Here's how.

Imagining that an incumbent president can run for reelection without reference to the main portion of his record is ridiculous. Voters need to be reminded of the good things that have been accomplished. Otherwise, they remain susceptible to the line of argument from the other side that not much has been done.

GOP cannot waste opportunity to address roots of 'systemic racism'

The Republican Party is wasting an opportunity that may not come again for a generation. They have accepted the verdict of the mob that police reform/defunding/whatever is the essential element in addressing everything that can get poured into the phrase "systemic racism." Published July 5, 2020

Collins is GOP's best bet in Georgia; Loeffler should recognize that

One state that will determine who controls the Senate is Georgia, which is holding two races, one being a special election. It features four-term Rep. Doug Collins trying to defeat newly appointed Sen. Kelly Loeffler and at least five other candidates Published July 1, 2020

A Chinese man stands alone to block a line of tanks heading east on Beijing's Cangan Blvd. in Tiananmen Square on June 5, 1989.  The man, calling for an end to the recent violence and bloodshed against pro-democracy demonstrators, was pulled away by bystanders, and the tanks continued on their way.  The Chinese government crushed a student-led demonstration for democratic reform and against government corruption, killing hundreds, or perhaps thousands of demonstrators in the strongest anti-government protest since the 1949 revolution. Ironically, the name Tiananmen means "Gate of Heavenly Peace". (AP Photo/Jeff Widener)
