Washington is now well into the second decade of an endless War on Terror that seems the sum of its exceptions to international law: endless incarceration, extrajudicial killing, pervasive surveillance, drone strikes in defiance of national boundaries and torture on demand.
When's the last time you reviewed your business retirement plan? Find a fiduciary investment adviser who can go over your current company plan and give you a second opinion. It may just save you millions.
Hate is learned and ISIS is but one of its only teachers. That woman's anti-Semitism will not be erased by government decrees. Such hatred can only be deconstructed by Muslims themselves. It is hard to blame any European Jew for not waiting around to find out how this all plays out.
It is foolhardy to reduce a complex human being to something as simplistic as race. Every child knows that one should not judge a book by its cover. Racial categories inevitably evaluate people based upon outward appearances.
It is amusing for Democrats to watch the "Ted Cruz wing" of the GOP try to defend their big DHS bill, just as it will be amusing to watch them howl later this week when it gets split in two. All a Democrat will have to do to really rub it in will be to say, "But you've been saying all along that immigration reform can only be done one tiny step at a time!"
Critics accuse President Barack Obama of being a foreign policy minimalist seeking to do the least harm rather than by choosing more effective if riskier solutions. In fairness, the president was dealt the most horrible hand on taking office dating back to FDR in 1933.
In the summer of 2013, a sharp spike higher in interest rates caused by the "taper tantrum" (fear that the Fed will soon end monetary easing) reduced both housing affordability and the opportunities to lower mortgage rates through refinancing.
We're not suggesting that everyone who gives retirement investment advice is taking advantage of their clients, since many advisers do act in their client's best interest. But, because the law does not require them to do so, far too many do not. That's why the President's recent action is so important.

Here's what really gets Giuliani and the others. Obama is breaking the unwritten law of modern conservative politics: At all times, you must treat Americans like children.
The Republican lawsuit against DACA expansion and DAPA was undoubtedly a bump in the road, but it is not the final word. The law is clear and DAPA/DACA expansion policies are legal, despite what Judge Hanen thinks.
Does the Administration really want to give Netanyahu the "cold shoulder" treatment? Then give him a display of what his world would look like without U.S. diplomatic protection for his policies in the West Bank.
Let's be clear about who Giuliani is: a faded, irrelevant Republican leader who seeks attention and will say and do ridiculous things in order to achieve that. Though I ,myself, have been accused of seeking attention, I seek attention around issues, causes and cases.
From President Obama's calls for equal pay to the House Democrats' Women Succeed agenda to the nonpartisan National Women's Law Center to now Oscar night itself, this issue is gaining traction.
When I was an industry PR guy, I was part of a never-ending effort to defame the NHS, usually by citing a few anecdotes about Brits who claimed to endure long waits for needed care. The industry's propaganda got little resistance from the media or the American public.
It makes little sense to continue with the same tactic of perpetual war, without any assurance of a better strategic outcome. To assume that another Iraq war will keep us "safe" doesn't address the nature of terrorism or the nature of failed wars.
