Feud With Trump Shifts to Flake's Home Turf, Ariz. Race (Tue, 22 Aug 2017)
Donald Trump will swoop into the backyard of two Republican critics Tuesday with a campaign-style rally that could further fan intraparty flames most recently fueled by his response to racial violence in Charlottesville, Va. The president's appearance in Phoenix is expected to shine a light on his long-standing tiff with Jeff Flake, a Republican senator who faces a challenging re-election bid next year in the Grand Canyon State. It is unusual for a president to weigh in against an incumbent of his own party, as Trump did last week by promoting Flake's primary opponent. It is also unusual for...

The Knockdown, Drag-Out Society (Tue, 22 Aug 2017)
Civilized disagreement -- that's one thing. But flagrant insult, direct or strongly implied, as a lever for moving public policy along -- I don't believe I'd call that persuasive, uplifting or even very useful. I would call it another mark of the disruptive, disrupted times we live in, when every difference of opinion is a fist fight, every debate a collision waiting to happen. We could put the name of Donald Trump on the table for diagnosis, but my present concern is the vocabulary of disparagement brought to bear on long-dead Confederates and those opposed to displacing long-standing...

Is Trump's Agenda Being Eclipsed? (Tue, 22 Aug 2017)
"I have not become the King's First Minister in order to preside over the liquidation of the British Empire," said Winston Churchill to cheers at the Lord Mayor's luncheon in London in November 1942. True to his word, the great man did not begin the liquidation. When his countrymen threw him out in July 1945, that role fell to Clement Attlee, who began the liquidation. Churchill, during his second premiership from 1951-1955, would continue the process, as would his successor, Harold Macmillan, until the greatest empire the world had ever seen had vanished. While its demise was inevitable,...

How Unhinged Is Trump? (Tue, 22 Aug 2017)
WASHINGTON -- How unstable and divorced from reality is President Trump? We've reached the point where the nation has the right and the need to know. We're not accustomed to asking such questions about our presidents. We don't know how to even begin inquiring into a president's mental health, so we rationalize aberrant behavior as being part of some subtle strategy. We say that Trump is cleverly playing to his base, or employing the "madman theory" of foreign relations, or simply being unpredictable to gain an advantage by keeping everyone off balance. But if Trump were really playing...

His McMaster’s Voice: Is Trump’s Afghanistan Policy THAT Different from Obama’s? (Mon, 21 Aug 2017)
Stanislaw Lem’s 1968 book, His Master’s Voice, portrayed first contact between an extra-terrestrial species and the efforts needed to translate the language they used, for human understanding. Today’s Afghanistan speech by President Trump may be equally alien to his electoral base, though it was not difficult to figure out whose influence led to the speech’s neoconservative bent. HR McMaster’s voice was clear to hear. It’s a voice that appears to have been carried over from the George W. Bush administration, and even the Obama White House. Today, President Trump tried to explain himself, and even excuse himself, to the base who voted for his non-interventionist streak. My original instinct was to pull out, and historically I like following my instincts. But all my life, I have heard that decisions are much different when you sit behind the desk in the oval office. In other words, when you are president of the United States. So I studied Afghanistan in great detail and from every conceivable angle. After many meetings over many months, we held our final meeting last Friday at Camp David with my cabinet and generals to complete our strategy. I arrived at three fundamental conclusion about America’s core interests

McMaster, left, listens at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla., Monday, Feb. 20, 2017, where Trump announced that McMaster will be the new national security adviser. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh) I voted for Donald J. Trump because he promoted a foreign policy of restraint. I did not vote for National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster to hijack the Trump agenda to continue failed policies of the past. I voted for Donald Trump’s campaign against “nation-building” and am concerned that this Administration has lost its way on foreign policy.
