Trump's tightening legal noose

The Donald Trump I know is a smart guy who often thinks a few steps ahead of those whose will he is trying to bend. But I lately wonder whether he grasps the gravity of the legal peril that is beginning to show up around him.

Steering clear of 'neighborhood clashes' in Asia

East and South Asia have been more prone to wars over sovereignty issues than any other region in the world since World War II. India-Pakistan and China-India conflicts were frequent in the 1960s. Communist countries in East Asia have not been immune from fighting each other. Soviet Russia and China clashed in border disputes, as have Vietnam and China.

Premature applause for the Trump trio

The point of political affiliation, like fan loyalty, is to join a team to win. Donald Trump promised voters weary of being beaten like a drum that if he were elected they would soon "get sick of winning." That hasn't happened. Yet. So it shouldn't surprise anyone that most Americans are cheering the president for linking up with the Democrats to post some victories. They might restrain the high-fives, though. Those triumphs come with a hefty price tag.

More pain and suffering on campus

History is complicated, and rarely is anything settled about the facts of what happened, and why, in wars, revolutions and crusades past. Historians are the first to say that those who think they know it all usually don't. But it's usually the ignorant who yell the loudest.

Campuses run by mob rule

Long ago and far away faculties ran universities, and students, by in large, got a good education. Today universities are run by professional administrators and campus mobs. What students get can hardly be described as a good education ("Nine arrested at Ben Shapiro speech as Berkeley officials express 'relief' that protest wasn't worse," Web, Sept. 15).

Cops who shoot innocents must pay

Does anyone remember the case of the Minneapolis police officer killing an unarmed Australian woman a few months ago? In case you have forgotten, Justine Damond called 911 because she thought someone was being sexually assaulted outside her home. After the police showed up, she walked out to their car. Officer Mohamed Noor killed her.

Joe Scarborough agrees: Trump's U.N. speech a winner

- The Washington Times

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, normally no fan of Donald Trump's -- to put it mildly -- nonetheless came out in defense of the president's speech before the United Nations. In short, Scarborough actually liked it. Check the skies for flying pigs.

Colin Kaepernick: Apologize

- The Washington Times

Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback known these days more for his on-field displays of anti-Americanism than for his tossing skills, now says he's ready to play. Well, isn't that special. No apology? No play. That's what I say, anyway.

Assessing Chinese imperialism

If you have not heard of One Belt, One Road you are missing what could be the landmark tale of this entire century. It is a saga of China's grand strategy that could threaten American interests at every level.
