    On ISIS, the Kentucky senator steers a distinctive course between his party’s neoconservatives and its bellicose populists.
    By Conor Friedersdorf

    ...Then there’s Paul, who stood out Tuesday in large part because he alone opposed almost all of the worst ideas championed by his rivals.
    ...
    His position is nevertheless clear: Overreacting to terrorism can do more harm than terrorism itself.

    ...if you’re hoping for a nominee who champions civil liberties even in war time; opposes a proxy war with Russia; opposes “carpet-bombing,” war with Iran, or punishing innocent Muslims; and its temperamentally and ideologically unlikely to overreact to terrorism, then Paul is the GOP candidate for you.

    Trump’s Insistence on Staying at His Own Resorts Just Blew Up in His Face

    Trump is planning a visit to Ireland in June. He insists that it is held on his own property. Ireland says the meeting in their country should be at a place they choose- not promote his own business. Rather than respecting his host's wishes, he says he may skip Ireland and go to Scotland (and another of his golf courses) instead. Would this be a violation of the emoluments clause...

Not some convoluted hiring or what other people said, might say, or allude to. And, in my opinion,...
