Here we go again. This week, President Trump appeared to renew his threat to withdraw from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) if Democrats do not pass his new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). His threats may worry pro-trade Republicans, but they are music to the ears of anti-NAFTA Democrats, who would love nothing better than to get rid of NAFTA without giving Trump a trade victory.

In 2016, a bunch of real-life white supremacists—not just Republicans who happen to disagree with the Democrats’ preferred immigration policy—put together a conference in Washington, D.C., to attract attention. All kinds of major news networks dutifully showed up, because legacy media has so…

Volkswagen recently announced that it is completely ending the production of its iconic car, the Beetle. It led a rich life for 80 years. Despite its nefarious origins with the Nazis, this automobile shaped like a charming insect wound up making friends with all types of human beings. Indeed…

The July 7 story, “Schools struggle with how to teach about slavery” (Page 12B), deserves a review. “Teaching about slavery is hard," says the Southern Poverty Law Center. After all these years of rising illiteracy, one would hope schools would finally focus on reading in kindergarten, not s…

Susan Brooks. Brian Fitzpatrick. Will Hurd. Fred Upton. You may have read or heard these names in passing, but they are worth lingering upon. These are the four Republicans who supported a resolution condemning President Trump's plainly racist taunt urging four House members to "go back" to their countries of family origin.

Marijuana is legal for recreational use to the east and north of Wisconsin in Michigan, and in six months will be legal to the south in Illinois. It’s also permitted for medicinal use to the west and southwest in Minnesota and Iowa.

This summer, I’m taking a tip from the Chantix turkey. You may have seen the ads for Chantix, a drug claiming to help people stop smoking gradually. The turkey character is seen trying to quit cigarettes in a calm, slow manner rather than going “cold turkey.” The mellow Galliforme calmly adj…

Regardless of your position on Donald Trump and his administration, one thing is universal: Our President is impossible to avoid. So far through his candidacy and presidency, Trump has received three times as much average media coverage as President Obama—and it shows.

It’s already a crime to identify a covert intelligence agent or confidential informant working overseas. But even though the law has only been used twice in 37 years—and even though no persuasive case has been made that it needs to be toughened or expanded—Congress is now proposing to broade…

Every citizen is entitled to live in safety. Home ownership is not a prerequisite. Whether you own your home, rent one or live in your vehicle, one should be able to be safe. Providing a safe place for those who are homeless is an obligation, just as is providing safety for homeowners. In ei…

White racism was at the root of Donald Trump’s 2016 candidacy, and so it will be again in 2020. Either we decisively reject it at the ballot box, and thus begin to salvage our pluralistic values, or we can acquiesce in the slow death of the American dream.

To be American is a wonderful thing most of the time. There are moments, however, when it is downright humiliating. Can you imagine a more pitiful scene than a busload of Americans traveling 815 miles from Minneapolis to a Walmart in London, Ontario, Canada, to buy insulin at a 10th—a 10th!—…

Wisconsin has an opportunity. The Republicans are concerned about the governor having power to create spending in the budget with a veto. While I fully agree with Gov. Tony Evers that education funding should be increased, I agree with the Republicans that it should not have been possible fo…

For many, summer is the literary season of lighter novels at the beach or pool. For me -- exhausted by the quickening pace of President Trump's moral and mental disintegration -- escape takes the form of reading works of fiction that I have often read before. Encountering a new novel is usually a stimulant. Reading a familiar novel is more like a security blanket. One is like foreign travel; the other re-walking paths close to home.

It is appropriate that the truth about Paul Ryan is being exposed, not only by Donald Trump but by other significant sources. It's absurd for Ryan to call out Trump for knowing nothing about government because Trump is second to none on implementing his policies, and Ryan couldn't even make …

A Maryland eighth-grader was suspended for three weeks and did not get to graduate with his class in June. This was his punishment for appearing in the background of a friend’s video in which said friend held a disabled Airsoft gun.

In Washington, the National Mall has gone quiet. The Blue Angels have flown back to base, the Abrams tanks have been returned to Ft. Stewart in Georgia, and President Trump’s July 4 speech has been debunked by fact-checkers and panned by Russian state-run TV. The memes it inspired might prov…
