Our pension math doesn’t add up
Some American disasters come as bolts from the blue — the stock market crash of October 1929, Pearl Harbor, the designated hitter, 9/11. Others are predictable because they arise from arithmetic that is neither hidden nor arcane. Now comes the tsunami of pension problems that will wash over many cities and states.

An enemy of the American people came into my office Friday night to talk about a story he was working on.

McMaster is a home run for Trump
For those looking for good news on the foreign-policy front under President Trump, his selection of Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster as national security adviser should be very welcome.

Trump confronts NATO free riders
NATO is a 28-nation alliance built on the premise that an attack on one member is an attack on every member. That’s a healthy dose of reassurance in a world where terrorism and Russia pose menacing threats. Yet 23 of those countries don’t pay their fair share for that NATO protection.

What’s really new at the border?
Agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement are setting up interior check-points. Customs and Border Protection guards, emboldened by President Trump, have begun asking foreign visitors for their social-media usernames. That’s one version of the news, anyway. The truth is that there were no checkpoints; and the social-media nonsense started under President Obama.

Seek God for Butler
Jeremiah 4:19 (NIV) reads: “Oh, my anguish my anguish. I writhe in pain. Oh, the agony of my heart, my heart pounds within me. I cannot keep silent, for I have heard the sound of the trumpet. I have heard the battle cry.”

Only two cheers for a carbon tax
By all means, let’s have a carbon tax. It’s the best way to deal with global climate change. It would require Republicans and Democrats to compromise — a good thing — and would provide revenues for a government that desperately needs more revenue. Fine. But let’s not pretend that a carbon tax is a panacea for either climate change or too much debt.

What we have is a failure to communicate
To sum up President Trump’s first month in office, he has exceeded everyone’s expectations.

Democrats should not oppose Gorsuch
When he was nominated for a federal judgeship in 2006, Neil Gorsuch was confirmed by voice vote in the Senate and there was not a single objection to an obviously qualified nominee. Though no one is expecting as smooth a ride for Gorsuch as President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, his qualifications are just as undeniable.

GOP Congress should air it all out
In an environment where every day has felt like a month and almost every news cycle has something that the media consider a potentially administration-shaking disaster, we finally have something worthy of the perpetually screaming headlines — a national-security adviser getting fired under a haze of suspicion about his dealings with Russia.

The cover-up in search of a crime
It’s a Watergate-era cliche that the cover-up is always worse than the crime. In the Mike Flynn affair, we have the first recorded instance of a cover-up in the absence of a crime.

The TPP could return — maybe
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is dead, but could it have an afterlife?
