rep. keith ellison (d-mn), the first muslim elected to congress, speaks during the democratic national convention in philadelphia on july 25, 2016. (david paul morris/bloomberg)one thing i can say about being muslim american: we’re good at building mosques. i’ve visited mosques of every shape and size, sometimes multi-million dollar facilities that cater to form as well as function. well-executed fundraising drives have made it possible to build outstanding facilities, even in localities where muslims are few and far between. in many parts of the country, they’re not just our houses of worship, they double as cultural hubs and, often, as refuges from the derision many muslim americans have sensed in the years since 9/11. in the different places i’ve lived, i’ve been grateful to h...

president trump addressed supporters in harrisburg, pa., on april 29 marking his first 100 days in office and renewed his promise to "repeal and replace" obamacare. (the washington post)in the flurry of interviews before president trump's 100th day in office, one of the remarks that stood out most for me did not come from trump himself. it was a quick paraphrase in the middle of the washington examiner's recap of a trump interviews on health care. after writing about trump's criticism of the affordable care act, reporter sarah westwood described how trump then talked about the american health care act, which republicans are trying to resurrect for a vote this week. “he extolled the legislation's virtues,” westwood wrote.what was he extolling, in particular? we don't know — b...

the overflow crowd at busboys and poets was black and white and shades in between, yuppies in chinos and activists in message t-shirts, bubbling with excitement to hear from the special guest at the restaurant’s open mic night.instead of a poet or a musician, rep. maxine waters (d-calif.) stepped onto the stage, showered with applause and cheers. not many members of congress could draw this kind of crowd — diverse and yet united behind a single goal. after taking a moment to thank the crowd for its greeting, waters got right to the point.“donald trump is someone that found his way to the presidency of the united states of america — i still don’t know how,” she said, drawing boos at the mention of the president’s name. “but he’s someone that i’m committed to getting impe...

president trump appears on stage at a rally in harrisburg, pa., april 29. (carlo allegri/reuters)in an interview with bloomberg, president trump made the surprising admission that he might consider raising the tax on gasoline to help fund infrastructure projects. asked about the possibility, trump replied that “it’s something that i would certainly consider.”there are two reasons that’s surprising. the first is that it’s unusual for a republican to offer even tacit agreement to tax increases. the second is that trump didn’t simply say it was something that he was already looking at, as he does with so many other things that journalists ask him about. as he did earlier in that same interview, saying, when asked if he might break up big banks. “i’m looking at that right now,...

let’s be clear: america is an undertaxed society. our wants and needs from government — the two blur — exceed our willingness to be taxed. this has been true for decades, but it’s especially relevant now because the number of older americans, who are the largest beneficiaries of federal spending, is rising rapidly. unless we’re prepared to make sizable spending cuts (and there’s no evidence we are), we need higher taxes.to the extent that president trump’s proposed “tax reform” obscures or worsens this inconvenient reality, it is a dangerous distraction. we cannot afford large tax cuts, which are pleasing to propose (“something for nothing”) but involve long-term risks that are not understood by the president or, to be fair, by economists. piling up massive peacetime ...

more than a century ago, congress gave the president extraordinary powers to protect precious public lands, in part to enable the white house to quickly preserve the southwest’s anasazi ruins from looters. since then, presidents have used the 1906 antiquities act to create scores of national monuments on hundreds of millions of acres. but a president has never tried to undo a national monument, and it is unclear whether he has the authority to do so.for that matter, it is unclear whether president trump will try to do so. but there are ominous signs that he is considering at least shrinking protected areas. in an executive order last week, mr. trump asked for a review of monuments that are more than 100,000 acres and were designated in 1996 or later. “historically, the act calls for th...

kansas gov. sam brownback vetoes the tax bill sent to him by the legislature on feb. 22, 2017. (thad allton /the topeka capital-journal via ap)the novelist thomas pynchon said something worth remembering when we find ourselves arguing about whether, as the trump administration claims, trickle-down tax cuts will pay for themselves:“if they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don’t have to worry about answers.”no credible analyst would claim that growth effects from tax cuts come anywhere close to offsetting their cost. there’s no consistent correlation between growth, productivity or investment and changes in tax rates over time or between countries. that’s not to say tax cuts never have any effect on growth (the effects, for the record, can go either way; a new, author...

president trump promised on april 30 that new gop health-care legislation will preserve coverage for people with preexisting medical conditions — but critics say that's at odds with his promise to lower premiums. (peter stevenson/the washington post)president trump tried sunday to reassure anxious republicans that the latest proposal to replace the affordable care act would continue to protect those with preexisting medical conditions, although he struggled to fully articulate what form those protections would take.as republicans have tried to find a health-care bill on which they can reach a consensus, speaker paul d. ryan (r-wis.) agreed to support an amendment that would allow insurance providers in some states to deny coverage or charge higher premiums to people with preexisting ...

at her “not the white house correspondents dinner” event, sam bee let guests drunk dial their reps.it’s a tidbit we found courtesy of washington, d.c.’s shadow senator paul strauss:bee, of course, was hosting the party to celebrate the press, but it wouldn’t really be one of her events without a call to activism mixed in there somewhere. she has said that her anti-whcd party was more about honoring the press than dishonoring donald trump, who refused to show up, but given the liberal leanings of her tbs show, it’s likely some of her guests dishonored him in their phone calls to the legislators anyway.this was more or less the irl version of 5calls.org, which lets users contact their representatives immediately and even tells them exactly what to say.[image: screengrab]li...

washington, d.c. — is it an exaggeration to say the mets saved their season these last two days against the nationals? i really don’t think so, not as badly as they were playing, reeling from injuries, coming in here against the hottest offense in baseball, also knowing that getting swept would bury them 10½ games back in the standings and officially start a manager watch on terry collins’ job. and, oh by the way, they were facing max scherzer and stephen strasburg. so, no, i don’t think you can overstate the importance of winning the first two games of this series, this one on saturday by the count of 5-3, assuring themselves of gaining ground, no matter what happens in the sunday finale.conforto delivers a 2-hr game as mets beat nats again, 5-3 you could even hear it a little bi...

francis fukuyama is a senior fellow at stanford university and mosbacher director of stanford’s center on democracy, development and the rule of law.president trump’s election provoked extraordinary fears that he would become an american strongman in the mold of authoritarian leaders he admires such as vladimir putin of russia or recep tayyip erdogan of turkey. unlike those countries, however, the united states has a very robust set of institutional checks and balances that are supposed to prevent any one individual from acquiring excessive power. the empirical question, then, is whether that system would successfully contain a president who displayed little respect for legal or ethical constraints.at the 100-day mark, it seems clear that the system is working properly and that trump i...

president donald trump betrays a superficial understanding of many of the topics on which he’s asked to comment, but few topics conjure up more incoherent and vacuous statements by him than history.trump has expressed admiration for andrew jackson, but he doesn’t seem to know much about the nation’s seventh president — a slave owner who died 16 years before the civil war began.“i mean, had andrew jackson been a little later, you wouldn’t have had the civil war,” trump told the washington examiner‘s salena zito. “he was a very tough person, but he had a big heart. and he was really angry that — he saw what was happening with regard to the civil war. he said, “there’s no reason for this.” people don’t realize, you know, the civil war — if you think about it, why...
