ERBIL, Iraq -- Here in the capital of Iraqi Kurdstan, the mood is "Kurdistan First" with the announcement of a referendum on independence in September. In neighboring Saudi Arabia, it's "Saudi First," as a brash young crown prince steers the kingdom toward a more assertive role in the region. In Moscow, where I visited a few weeks ago, it's "Russia First," with a vengeance. And so it goes, around most of the world. The politics of national self-interest is on steroids these days. For global leaders, it's the "me" moment.

We get more choices -- usually better choices, for less money. "But of all the products we make and the services we provide, there's one that stands out as an exception," according to the Cato Institute's Andrew Coulson. "One activity in which excellence doesn't spawn countless imitators or spread on a massive scale: schooling." Why not? What can be done about it?

Three decades of aggressive policing and harsh sentencing for low-level drug offenders clogged our prisons and disrupted the lives of millions of Americans, all while failing to reverse a growing drug epidemic that continues to ravage communities across our country. So, why does the attorney general insist on refighting a battle we already lost? Because he doesn’t understand the problem.

The deep divisions within Washington’s ruling party frustrated lawmakers who voted more than 60 times prior to Trump’s election to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, but now concede that any replacement remains a legislative and... https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2017/06/27/senate_gop_delays_health_vote_in_search_for_support_134310.html 200134310 Alexis Simendinger & James ArkinAlexis Simendinger & James Arkin2017/06 06/27/2017/00/00/00 Tue, 27 Jun 2017 19:16:36 -0500 419441 Sen. Tom Cotton is holding his health care cards close to his chest. After waging an aggressive and extensive public war against the House health care legislation when it was released several months ago, Cotton has kept almost entirely quiet about the Senate version, even as other senators announce their opposition and make public demands for changes that could earn their support.

Last night, Washington’s baseball team was defeated, 5-4, by the defending major league champion Chicago Cubs. Until last autumn, it had been 108 years since anyone would link the words “World Series champs” and “Chicago Cubs” in the same sentence -- except in fiction -- but on Monday night the Cubbies showed the grit that suggests they will be formidable again in October despite their slow start in 2017.

White House advisers -- eager to counter-program President Trump’s preoccupation with the Russia investigations and the bumpy GOP efforts to fashion a health care bill -- decided June would showcase a series of weekly presidential initiatives tied to jobs and the economy.

At the time, you could get married at the age of 15 -- provided you had the consent of your parents or guardian -- and, thanks to Ringgold's 45-minute blood test, you could get married quickly. Word got out rapidly, and this tiny little town just over the Tennessee state line became known as the marriage mecca of the Southeast and the mid-Atlantic.

But he gave the world what was likely the most plaintive, plangent query of our time. He wanted to know, in the aftermath of the LA burning, "Can we all get along?" Can we -- huh -- rather than wallop each other and turn the air blue with the making of strained political points? The King question, in something of its original anguish, comes to mind as the U. S.

Keeping it was considered a sign of indiscipline and a risk no experienced politician would take. Yet the president continues to make news with the medium, proving his use is a calculated means of settling scores and driving his agenda. In two messages on Thursday, he settled the question sparked by his May 12 tweet that there might be tapes of his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey in the Oval Office, saying he had none.

It has created untold anxiety for some of the most vulnerable among us, who have watched premiums skyrocket and insurance plans canceled. Too many Americans now live in locations with only one Obamacare plan on offer. Soon there will be locations with none.

But a dark cloud loomed over one event. When some lesbians showed up at the “Dyke March” with banners that included a Star of David, they were booted out. The Jewish symbol “made us feel unsafe,” the organizers said.

It has been well established by this point that Russia attempted to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, including by hacking into the Democratic National Committee and two state elections databases. Many lawmakers and experts agree it will happen again, during the 2018 midterm elections and beyond. Roughly seven months after Election Day, however, it’s less clear what anyone will do about it — and even those lawmakers with the power to act fear that this time will be no different.

Across the pond, the youth vote allowed the British Bernie Sanders to do a lot better than the so-called experts thought he'd do in the recent general election. Here in America, we all know how the millenials went ga-ga for Bernie. He got more millennial votes in the primaries than Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump -- combined.

This occurred recently when he took Barack Obama to task for his weak -- and tardy -- response to Russia's meddling in the U.S. election. For a moment there, Trump forgot that Vladimir Putin can do no wrong. But for that rare moment, the president was absolutely right. The Obama administration's response to Russia meddling was ineffective and oddly torpid. It was also secretive.

Depression warps one's thinking. It saps energy and magnifies problems, making it hard to deal with them calmly. Democrats' overreaction to the recent loss in a Georgia special election bore all the trademarks of depression. "Why Do Democrats Keep Losing in 2017?" was among the self-flagellating headlines, this one in The Atlantic. Democrats badly need a little cognitive therapy to challenge negative patterns of thought. So they lost special elections in South Carolina, Kansas, Georgia and Montana.

In this vision, a small, geeky elite gains the ability to use biological and cyborg engineering to become something beyond human. It may "upgrade itself step by step, merging with robots and computers in the process, until our descendants will look back and realize that they are no longer the kind of animal that wrote the Bible [or] built the Great Wall of China."

The new president of South Korea is a former human-rights lawyer, not a businessman. Mr Trump likes to threaten North Korea with isolation and aircraft-carriers; Mr Moon is an advocate of dialogue and co-operation. The South Korean president is reserved, while the US president is bombastic.

The estimate, released less than a week after Republicans in the upper chamber unveiled their health care legislation and just days ahead of a potential vote, could complicate the already difficult task of getting enough GOP support to pass the measure.

Gorsuch has already paired up four times with Justice Clarence Thomas - the court's most conservative member - in separate opinions that dissent from or take issue with the court's majority rulings. While the sample size is small, the results show Gorsuch's commitment to follow the strict text of the law and a willingness to join Thomas in pushing the envelope further than the court's other conservatives. Gorsuch was picked by President Donald Trump to be a reliable conservative in... https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2017/06/26/clues_to_gorsuchs_ideology_seen_in_pairings_with_thomas_134290.html 200134290 Sam HananelSam Hananel2017/06 06/26/2017/00/00/00 Mon, 26 Jun 2017 12:29:22 -0500 419263Commentary One of the little-told stories of the 2016 election was Donald Trump’s 28 percent take of the Hispanic vote, besting Mitt Romney’s 2012 showing. We on Team Trump won’t throw parades for winning less than one-third of the Latino vote nationally, but lessened enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton among Hispanics represents a key reason, perhaps the primary reason, she was ultimately uncompetitive in Florida. Why did Latino support for Trump massively outperform expectations? For one thing, millions of Hispanics rejected the relentless mainstream media narrative that Trump is an... https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2017/06/26/why_trump_is_earning_latino_support_134288.html 200134288 Steve CortesSteve Cortes2017/06 06/26/2017/00/00/00 Mon, 26 Jun 2017 09:18:47 -0500 419250 Good morning, it’s Monday, June 26, 2017. Fifty-four years ago today, John F. Kennedy visited West Berlin where he delivered one of the most stirring presidential addresses of the 20th century. I wrote about the “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech five years ago, which only underscores why studying history is not a static pursuit: In 2012, the Oval Office was not occupied by a man who was elected president while promising to build a wall on the U.S. southern border. In fairness, the “big beautiful wall” Donald Trump promised is not intended to keep Americans from... https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2017/06/26/election_meddling_the_cop_conundrum_conservative_divide_jfk_in_berlin_134287.html 200134287 Carl M. CannonCarl M. Cannon2017/06 06/26/2017/00/00/00 Mon, 26 Jun 2017 07:35:11 -0500Commentary Donald Trump’s ascent to the presidency precipitated a rift of unprecedented proportions in American conservatism. To prevent a permanent split, conservatives must recover an appreciation of the enduring tensions that constitute their movement. Too few conservatives, however, are focusing on conciliation. In 2016, many reluctantly concluded that Trump, despite manifest flaws and eclectic priorities, was more likely than Hillary Clinton to advance a conservative agenda of limited government, economic prosperity, and strong defense.
