Being the great-great grandson of a Union soldier who gave the last full measure of devotion to preserve the Union in the bloodiest war in American history, I have a vested interest in the actions of the Alexandria Episcopal Church and the critics of Gen. Kelly’s remarks about the Civil War.
An academic and former governor’s son, Puerto Rico’s current governor, Ricardo Rossello, came into office with zero previous political or business experience. However, he is well-schooled in how things work (or often don’t work) on the island. His constituents can’t vote in federal elections, but once they step foot in any state of the union, they can vote. Voters of the Caribbean are his best bargaining chip in an otherwise poor hand.
Victor Davis Hanson’s “Remembering Stalingrad 75 years later” (Web, Nov. 7) is an excellent narrative about a critical event in history. However, it leaves the impression that Germany’s dividing its army between Stalingrad and the Russian oil fields caused its defeat and marked the turning point in World War II. Other historians differ.
The Virginia election loss of Ed Gillespie showed voter frustration with our do-nothing Congress, not frustration with the hard-working President Donald Trump, who is making America great again. The Virginia GOP must rebuild with the president’s help and elect Corey Stewart for senator in 2018. He is the best hope Republicans have to drain the swamp of Northern Virginia and represent true conservative values.
If Republican Senate nominee Judge Roy S. Moore sexually abused four women and one was only 14 years old at the time, he should withdraw from the U.S. Senate race immediately. But that’s a big “if.” After being silent for more than 30 years — during which time Mr. Moore ran for many offices — these women are accusing Mr. Moore now, when it is too late under Alabama law for another Republican to be put on the ballot. If he withdraws, the election of a Democrat is guaranteed. That smells.
