Law and Justice
Paul Haeder: The enemy is looking back in the mirror no matter how many times one plays back Trump on Twitter.
WJ Astore: Ike knew that national safety shouldn’t be equated with military prowess; quite the reverse, as he warned us against the unchecked power of a burgeoning military-industrial-Congressional complex.

Elections and Campaigns
Peter Dreier: An Arpaio candidacy would make it more likely that a Democrat will win the Senate seat next November, similar to Doug Jones’s defeat of Roy Moore for the Alabama Senate seat last month.
