    Have we learned the lesson of 9/11?

    Shapiro

    ...American troops are likely to remain in Afghanistan for the foreseeable future. Few politicians will be bold enough to simply state that truth.

    How the quest for power corrupted Elizabeth Warren

    Shapiro

    If Elizabeth Warren circa 2003 were running, she'd be the odds-on favorite for president. But Warren circa 2019 would hate Warren circa 2003.

    Trump is right on the China threat

    Shapiro

    If Americans are asked to shoulder an economic burden without being informed as to the rationale or the cost, they will rightly buck. Therefore, President Trump must articulate to them the importance of opposing China's ambitions – or his economic war with that nation will fail.

    The media's intersectional embrace of anti-Semitism

    Shapiro

    The recent brouhaha surrounding Israel's decision to block two anti-Semitic lawmakers from entering the country confirms what conservatives have been saying for years: Our major media are driven by narrative, not by fact … and the narrative depends on the players.

    Why we embrace conspiracy theories

    Shapiro

    Much of our tendency to believe conspiracy theories these days has to do with generalized distrust of the media – but more of it has to do with the human inability to accept widespread incompetence.

    Why can't we unify in the face of evil?

    Shapiro

    There can be no unity when one side of the political aisle firmly believes that the other side is motivated by unmitigated evil.

    Baltimore, land of political footballs

    Shapiro

    Obfuscating Baltimore's problems because Trump put his finger on them doesn't help Baltimore any more than ignoring Baltimore's problems because Democrats govern it.

    Why the Left is reconsidering Al Franken

    Shapiro

    Sen. Al Franken was kicked out of the Democratic Party when Democrats were trying to build a case against President Donald Trump. Now that they've concluded that case won't work, they want Franken back again. Presumably, they'll soon be back to praising Bill Clinton, too.

    The news cycle without Trump's tweets

    Shapiro

    There's certainly truth to the notion that Donald Trump is able to redirect the news cycle toward his personal whims based on the click of a few buttons – but with great power comes great risk.

    Freedom from consequences isn't freedom

    Shapiro

    Attention all Bernie supporters: Canceling student debt may mean a more carefree life for those of you who voluntarily took on debt – but it means a more burdensome life for those who have paid off their debts, who didn't go to college, or who haven't yet been born.

    What we can learn from the European Union

    Shapiro

    The burgeoning conflict within the EU should provide the United States with an object lesson: When you maximize the power of the federal government at the expense of the states, you maximize the possibility of polarization.

    No, abortion isn't a constitutional right

    Shapiro

    It's an odd spectacle these days. Those on the political left are declaring that the Constitution enshrines a right to abortion ... yet they argue it does not include a right to bear arms, a right to freedom of political speech, a right to retain property free of government seizure, or a right to practice religion.
