  • Marc A. Thiessen: The Senate must confirm Pompeo

    For the first time in the history of the republic, it appears increasingly likely that a majority of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will vote against the president's nominee for secretary of state. If this happens, it would be a black mark not on Mike Pompeo's record, but on the reputation of this once-storied committee.

  • E.J. Dionne: Nikke Haley’s SOS to the nation

    "With all due respect, I don't get confused." These eight words from Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, will go down as among the most powerful indictments of the rancid governing culture President Trump has fostered. They may also shed light on one of the great mysteries of the moment: Why is it that Trump regularly backs off when it comes to confronting Vladimir Putin and Russia? The matter-of-factness of Haley's comment made it all the more acidic.

  • Dana Milbank: Nikki Haley was confused, all right

    Nikki Haley thought she knew what President Trump was going to do. Now she looks like a dupe. What makes Republicans in Congress think their trust in Trump will work out any better for them? Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that he won't take up legislation blocking Trump from firing special counsel Robert S.

  • Notice where Jim Comey doesn’t care about the truth

    James Comey’s new book has occasioned a good deal of discussion about truth and lies and integrity. Although “A Higher Loyalty” is a brisk read with much to recommend it, the central message about how and why truth matters is one that I find troubling. There’s a worrisome bit, for instance, where Comey talks about...

  • Alan Chartock’s The Capitol Connection: Cuomo unable to ignore challenger

    A lot is going on in New York electoral politics. The big bombshell last week was that the New York Working Families Party (WFP) endorsed Cynthia Nixon, one of the stars of Sex and the City. The Cuomo operatives have been out in force suggesting that unlike Cuomo, Nixon has no real political experience.

    When President Bill Clinton signed the welfare reform act in 1996, which he negotiated with then-Speaker Newt Gingrich, the left claimed people would starve. They didn't. According to the nonpartisan Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, between 1996 and 2000, the employment rate for single mothers increased from 63 percent to 76 percent.

    Starbucks just can’t seem to win: It has gone all-out to grovel after the Philadelphia incident, yet it’s still getting hit for not being PC enough. The company is launching mass sensitivity training for employees, and one group it’s asked to help is the Anti-Defamation League — which has earned it the ire of Women’s...

  • Cuomo steps up against New York’s failing sex-trafficking laws

    We’re glad to hear Gov. Cuomo pledge to back long-stalled efforts to toughen New York’s sex-trafficking laws — and look forward to his trademark all-hands push to make it happen. This week’s horrifying Post exposés of underage trafficking flagged the embarrassing fact that New York is one of just three states that requires prosecutors to...
