The right sees more evidence of the ‘deep state’ to come


Do you need any more proof there is a group within the government that wanted to keep Trump from taking office? A roundup of editorials Tuesday takes a look at the issue.
 Opinions from the right:

1.  FBI/FISA memo exposes 'deep state'
From Ron Paul: Yes there is a ‘deep state’ and both sides play a part in it.

2. The FBI’s scandalous attempt to block the Nunes memo
From The Washington Post: Our problem isn’t the memo it’s the FBI.

3. The FISA-gate boomerangs
From National Review: The story of wrongdoing by Obama-era DOJ and FBI officials is only just starting.

The left wonders why the right didn’t speak up about FBI secrets before.

Opinion: After Kavanaugh, the deluge

Opinion: Trump, tariffs, tofu and tax cuts

According to early indications, recent U.S. economic growth was full of beans. No, seriously. More than half of America’s soybean exports typically go to China, but Chinese tariffs will shift much of that demand to Brazil, and countries that normally get their soybeans from Brazil have raced to replace them with U.S. beans. The perverse result...
Opinion: What the cave boys teach us about abortion

Twelve boys and their adult coach trapped in a dank, oxygen-deprived cave in Thailand riveted the world’s attention for two weeks. Why, people ask at times like this, are we so focused on these individuals when half a million Rohingya refugee children are in danger of starving on the Bangladesh border, or when 400,000 Yemeni children are severely...

ITP Amazon HQ2 win would worsen already-bad traffic Regarding “The quest for Amazon’s HQ2 continues” (Editorial, July 8), each morning I see live TV news broadcasts of endless rows of vehicles creeping along the freeways and, in some cases, not moving at all. Their destination is Atlanta and its environs. A simple observation says...
