“A permanent breach with Saudi Arabia is not an acceptable outcome.” That was the blunt assessment of former State Department official and longtime GOP foreign policy maven Marc Thiessen in the Washington Post this week. That’s more true than many would like to think, even amidst bipartisan disgust over...More »]]>Heather Hurlburtforeign policyjamal khashoggisaudi arabiatop storyiran<![CDATA[How to Not Trap Your Partner in a Smart-Home Techno-Prison Hell]]>, 19 Oct 2018 21:27:17 GMT

The alliance between the Trump campaign and Russia had many nodes of contact. One of the least known, but potentially most significant, is the work that ran through Republican operative Peter W. Smith. Much of the reporting on Smith has been broken by The Wall Street Journal, and its accumulated...More »]]>Jonathan Chaitthe national interestpolitics<![CDATA[The GOP’s 2019 Agenda Is for Donors’ Eyes Only]]>, 19 Oct 2018 21:00:21 GMTIn May of last year, congressional Republicans were trying to pass a historically unpopular plan for restructuring the American health care system.

One legal term of art the Supreme Court has never bothered to define with precision is the phrase “critical mass.” When the Court last upheld the use of affirmative action by colleges and universities in the admissions process, Justice Anthony Kennedy glossed over those words without really stopping to...More »]]>Cristian Fariasthe lawscotussupreme courtaffirmative actioncollege admissionscollegeharvard university<![CDATA[Democrats Are Ending — and Maybe Reversing — the Once-Powerful Republican Midterm Turnout Advantage]]>, 19 Oct 2018 18:53:40 GMT

People accustomed to reading and hearing about Democratic enthusiasm going into the November 6 elections may have missed a very important subtext of this topic: Republicans have recently had a built-in turnout advantage in midterms.

President Trump is still mad about rising interest rates. He blames the Federal Reserve, which he says is the “biggest threat” to his success. He’s worried they’re raising interest rates too fast, in a way that will unnecessarily slow the economy, because they’re concerned about a phantom inflation threat.

Last February, the federal government announced that it would walk away from plans to move the FBI’s headquarters out of downtown D.C., despite years of planning.
