Donald Trump has some dotty notions about Mexico paying for walls and so forth. But Hillary Clinton is dead wrong about the wisdom of U.S. withdrawal from NATO. It’s a great idea, one whose time has come.
Political progressives may be right, more or less, about North Carolina's new bathroom law, but that doesn't excuse their strong-arm tactics — especially becaue many of the now-outraged companies still do business with abusive governments.
