Wilf Woods | Touring the dam and Dry Falls

Hot weather has not slowed down the flood of visitors to Grand Coulee Dam and Dry Falls. We returned there this past week to see the country's biggest power producer.

Charles Krauthammer | The worst agreement in U.S. diplomatic history

The devil is not in the details. It’s in the entire conception of the Iran deal, animated by President Obama’s fantastical belief that he, uniquely, could achieve detente with a fanatical Islamist regime whose foundational purpose is to cleanse the Middle East of the poisonous corruption of American power and influence.

Tracy Warner | Celebrate the day, not the noise

Somewhere, somehow, we had it embedded in our national psyche that we must celebrate our national independence and liberty with explosions and flame.

Conservatives are dismayed about the Supreme Court’s complicity in rewriting the Affordable Care Act — its ratification of the IRS’ disregard of the statute’s plain and purposeful language. But they have contributed to this outcome. Their decades of populist praise of judicial deference to the political branches has borne this sour fruit.
