Protection from Harm and Combat Addiction Illustration by Greg Groesch/The Washington Times

Combat addiction with harm reduction, not prohibition

The Prohibition era of the 1920s and early ‘30s and the War on Drugs of the last 50 years show that outright prohibitions and bans on alcohol and drugs of all kinds fail to curtail use of the banned substance.

Milley is expected to testify with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sept. 28, and a House panel on Wednesday, Sept. 29.  The hearings originally were meant to focus on the Afghanistan withdrawal and the chaotic evacuation from Kabul airport last month.

What does Milley have to do to get fired?

George Washington is known as “the indispensable man.” Smash cut to 2021, and it seems Gen. Mark Milley has stolen that moniker, not for successes, but in spite of failures.

U.S. has to win in Europe to turn tide in Ryder Cup

- Associated Press

While the Americans looked better than ever -- "the greatest team of all time," U.S. captain Steve Stricker said in a moment of exuberance -- their 19-9 victory was only a step, even if it felt like a giant leap. Not only was it the biggest blowout against Europe since it joined in 1979, it equaled the largest margin in any Ryder Cup since 1975. The big picture? Nothing matters until Italy in 2023.

Biden will not be welcomed at border

Last week Joe Biden loudly condemned a part of his own executive branch, becoming the first president ever to do so. His bitter denunciation was based solely on some pictures he had seen on TV, and without benefit of trial or jury.

In doing so, he was discrediting the weeks of extraordinarily hard work done by the Border Patrol in trying to manage the tens of thousands of immigrants streaming illegally into Texas thanks to Biden's wildly irresponsible statements declaring our borders open.
