  • BROOKS/A great deal for the many
    Wednesday, December 7, 2016 6:00 PM If Donald Trump could script his presidency, every week would probably look like the one just past. You get on the phone with some corporate big shot who’s considering closing a plant in the Rust Belt. You offer some carrots, you threaten implicitly, you make a deal: Jobs stay, factories don’t close, and maybe next time they even open. (Nothing will make Trump happier than the day he gets Apple to open a minor widget factory in Wisconsin.) Then you hold a big rally, brag about your dealmaking prowess, promise that CEOs won’t be shipping jobs overseas with impunity anymore … and then fly back to Trump Tower and wait for the next opportunity to do it all again.

  • LOWRY/To kill a pipeline — again
    Wednesday, December 7, 2016 6:00 PM One of the Obama administration’s core competencies is suspending pipeline projects with no cause.

The 1,200-mile pipeline is designed to move oil from North Dakota to Illinois and will have to await completion in a Trump administration with a more rational attitude toward pipelines specifically and fossil fuels generally.

  • THRALL/Why Trump’s war on media matters
    Wednesday, December 7, 2016 6:00 PM Now as president-elect, Trump’s war on the media continues. At a recent meeting with top television executives, for example, Trump berated the networks for their “outrageous” and “dishonest” coverage and, according to a source, he told CNN chief Jeff Zucker that “everyone at the network is a liar and you should be ashamed.” The same day, rather than holding a press conference where journalists might ask him difficult or uncomfortable questions, Trump instead released a YouTube video updating the public on the White House transition, which he said had proceeded “very smoothly, efficiently, and effectively.” Read More
  • DUNCAN/‘Jesus: The dividing line’
    Wednesday, December 7, 2016 6:00 PM Turn to Luke 12:49-59. As you look through this passage, let me give you a few clues along the way to help you follow the train of argument. There are at least three parts to this passage. First, in verses 49 and 50, and especially in verse 50, Jesus makes a powerful declaration. He’ll follow it up in verses 51 to 53 with a penetrating question. Then, in verses 54 to 59, He turns to the multitudes and gives them an admonition, warning them because they lack spiritual discernment. Read More
  • Wednesday, November 30, 2016 6:00 PM MADISON – The first thing one notices upon entering the lobby of MRA’s gymnasium is the trophy case filled with gold balls.
