Opinion: Congress needs to reassert itself on use of force
The decision to send troops overseas requires clear eyes, hard questions and specific answers. The Trump Administration, like its predecessors, has shown an apparent appetite for the use of force overseas. The "mother of all bombs" dropped on Syrian troops, saber-rattling toward North...

Letter: Trump is my president
I find it interesting on how the Liberals are stating facts about Trump that they get from CNN and make it sound like they were in a WH briefing. I can state some facts. I had (5) TRUMP signs stolen by Hillary babies that trespassed on my property, but they took the HIGH road! They...

Lee Hamilton column: Political system broken? Fix it, don’t throw it out
It’s so easy in a presidential election year to forget that our system is not about a single person. This year especially, when the dynamics of the presidential contest have dominated news coverage so thoroughly that even the Senate and House races have largely disappeared from...

Editorial: Put down the stone, step away from the sinner

Obama's ideas are good, but must be paid for

Guest Editorial: Minnesota could have front-row seat to elections
