The New York Times recently reported that President Donald Trump has, on a number of occasions, contemplated withdrawing from NATO. This is an important issue for public debate and, ultimately, for elections. There is, however, no constitutional amendment codifying a forever-alliance with se…

A 13-year-old girl spotted at a bus stop. Her home invaded by a shotgun-carrying predator who kills her father, then mother. Months at a rural Wisconsin home, hidden under a bed. The allegations following Jayme Closs’ disappearance tell a story beyond nightmares.

In February 2017, Dr. Christopher Duntsch became the first surgeon in American history known to be sentenced to prison for botching a patient surgery. A licensed neurosurgeon, Duntsch left a string of deaths and maimed bodies in his wake: He was accused of causing the death of two surgery pa…

Fear not: Schools using Raptor ID's visitor identification management system are keeping kids safe by keeping out sex offenders. That's part of the sales pitch offered on the company's website and a key takeaway from news stories on the website about the product. We hope it doesn't lull the public and schools into a false sense of security.

Want to boost our southern border security and create jobs while spending $500 million a year versus more than the low-ball $6 billion estimate for wall construction? There will be construction cost overruns, legal expenses (many affected landowners will fight the taking of their land) and e…

The world turns even if America doesn’t. That’s certainly true on trade, where a rebranded Trans-Pacific Partnership has begun with the new year in 11 countries two years after President Trump withdrew. The biggest losers are American producers.

As a member of the Janesville City Council, I am looking forward to 2019 for a number of reasons. Many positive things are happening in Janesville. I am speaking for myself, not the city council, in drawing attention to these five events that I feel will help shape Janesville this year.

The partial government shutdown has forced some federal workers to move money around to pay for food and rent. No surprise there. What’s shocking is the many who don’t have the money to move. They have no financial cushion to cover even one month’s worth of ordinary expenses.

It seems this year’s Academy Awards will be conducted using a no-host format, now that Kevin Hart and his dossier of homophobic wisecracks have been officially ruled out.

In 2014, when I started to write a book about the need to restrict the amount of time our kids spend on screens, the idea was not a popular one. The research I’d done persuaded me to set a tight policy for my own elementary-school children: No television or playing on tablets on weekdays. Bu…

So far: President Trump has announced a crisis that isn't actually a crisis, requiring a wall that is not really a wall, funded by Mexican pesos that are really American tax dollars, to keep out murderous migrants who are (as a whole) less violent than native-born Americans, leading to congressional negotiations that involve no actual negotiations, resulting in a government shutdown undertaken on the advice of radio personalities, defended in an Oval Office address that consisted of alarmism, prejudice, falsehood and other material caught in the P-trap of Stephen Miller's mind.

Within the space of 25 years, a company that began life selling niche second-hand books from a garage in Seattle has become the world’s most valuable business. Amazon was worth $815 billion when the US stock market closed on Monday, surpassing Microsoft for the first time.

This week, the American Psychological Association proved once again that it is a political body rather than a scientific one. This isn’t the first time a major mental health organization has favored politics over science—in 2013, the American Psychiatric Association famously reclassified “ge…

The kids are bratty, the parents fighting, the homes a mess. It’s remarkable how American domestic life can breed so much dissatisfaction amid so much plenty.
