Scott Gottlieb will fight for patients facing serious and terminal illnesses, because he has been one. And there is no contradiction between speeding access to investigational medicines for dying Americans and treatments and maintaining a rigorous clinical trial process.
Howard Dean waded into the controversy over the cancellation of a speech by Ann Coulter at the University of California at Berkeley — a cancellation prompted by fears that protesters against her will turn violent. He said that the First Amendment does not protect “hate speech”: an extravagantly false statement.
For decades, critics of America’s mass immigration have argued that the social upheaval such policies produce is dangerous and destabilizing. But the topic became radioactive for reasonable politicians, creating an opening for unreasonable ones among the working-class constituencies most affected by immigration. This is precisely what has happened in France.
Though U.S. policymakers often assume that Washington will soon be eclipsed by Beijing, in truth the United States is widening the wealth gap with China, as the Chinese economy continues to flounder. This fact is frequently obscured, however, in large part because of Beijing’s successful military modernization as compared to America’s decimated global combat power.
The election in France was a contest between the capital city and the historic heartland, a pattern we’ve seen in elections in multiple countries over the past year, and often in contradiction to traditional party lines.

Trump slaps stiff 20% taxes on US homebuilders – expect higher home prices and 1,000s of construction job losses
The media is reporting today that Team Trump has slapped stiff tariffs of 20 percent on Canadian lumber. But it would be more accurate to report that the administration has just slapped stiff 20% tariffs (lumber taxes) on the American people, not Canada.
In my first job as a Washington reporter, John Gizzi pulled me into the office to impart wisdom about living and working in this town. One piece that stuck with me: “You can tell a person’s character by how they treat a person from whom they don’t believe they have anything to gain.”
He may as well have been speaking about Kate O’Beirne.
Trump’s campaign largely ignored crafting detailed policy proposals and instead relied on rhetoric to attack the opposition. Now Trump’s chickens are coming home to roost as the administration struggles to achieve any legislative success on both health and tax reform.
How will recent events impact the reauthorization of authorities that allow the US to conduct surveillance on the communications of foreign individuals?
Many G.O.P. members of Congress are finding themselves under siege at town halls. While the virtue of such protests is up for debate, they are a fact of life. The key to dealing with “the mob,” though, is quite simple: politicians need to “reindividuate” its members. Read how.
New research indicates that young millennials, who many assumed would be torchbearers for a more progressive approach to family life, actually take a more traditional view of family arrangements than Generation Xers and baby boomers when they were young adults.

The dictator in question – the First Magistrate, as he is referred to throughout — is a corrupt and violent oppressor of his people who spends most of his time in Paris, returning home to his generically Latin American homeland only when his people rise up and need to be crushed.
Generally, consumers believe that the Federal Communications Commission protects them from these abuses, but the data suggests that the FCC’s leadership in recent years was more concerned with politics, namely headline chasing, than mundane enforcement that actually matters to consumers.
With less than two weeks before leaving office, the Obama administration cut the FHA mortgage insurance premium. Only hours after the inauguration, the Trump administration indefinitely suspended the premium cut. Why this flurry of activity?
