The sheer depth of our mutual trade and military cooperation outweighs any fantasy of appearing “needy” Boris Johnson’s dislike of the term the Special Relationship for the links Britain has with the United States, because he thinks it makes the UK look “needy”, is bizarre.

Everybody has to draw the line somewhere. For the Rev. Russell Moore, it appears to have happened over the way the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has handled racism and sexual abuse allegations within its ranks. Last month, he resigned as president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, the SBC’s public policy arm in Washington, D.C.
Writing about art during the past couple of years, I've tried to focus on one work at a time. The better to closely observe, describe, analyze, interpret and evaluate. That is impossible to do after seeing "Sedrick Huckaby" at the Blanton Museum of Art, a smallish but magnificent show that runs through Dec. 5 in the museum's upstairs gallery devoted to the art of today.
PARIS — As US President Joe Biden prepares for his first summit meeting with Vladimir Putin — who he has called “a killer” — we look at what his predecessors thought of the Russian president.

Michael Gerson compared the “contending nightmares” being put forward by both sides of the aisle in his latest column for The Washington Post. And for ex-President George W. Bush’s former speechwriter, there is no contest.

I was one of those punk rock Republicans of the 1990s who didn’t want the government to tell me what to do. You know what? I grew up and left the party after George W. Bush invaded Iraq based on lies and propaganda. Then I went on to study propaganda and earn a master's degree.

Rep. Barbara Lee says Biden putting US on course to end 'forever wars' with support for 2002 AUMF repeal
Summary List Placement When the Trump administration sought a legal justification for killing an Iranian general in Baghdad, it pointed to a measure passed by Congress more than 17 years earlier: the law that formally granted President George W.

Barbara Lee, a California Democrat, that was quite a stretch — and another example of Congress losing its authority over matters of war and peace to the White House.
What has happened to the Republican Party? It was the party of anti-slavery and Abraham Lincoln, the party of Teddy Roosevelt and the National Park System, and the party of Ike Eisenhower and the interstate highway system. In the Ronald Regan and George W. Bush years, wars were fought on borrowed money, tax breaks were for the wealthy, and it took the determined leadership of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama to regain economic stability.
The House is voting Monday evening on a bill to repeal the 2002 US war authorization in Iraq, with Democrats hopeful that the White House’s backing will give them newfound momentum to finally revoke the nearly 20-year-old authorization. The White House’s Office of Management and Budget on Monday issued a statement supporting the House’s legislation, a move that’s likely to boost the prospects that the Senate will also take action to repeal the authorization for use of military force, which was passed in the months before the George W. Bush administration invaded Iraq in 2003.
Sitting alone watching the parade, the 95-year-old Queen chose a pale grey outfit with yellow detail by her dresser Angela Kelly. The three then went inside for tea.
