Views From Kansas: Wagle failing to lead in Senate

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

The worst has come from Senate President Susan Wagle, a Wichita ultraconservative who fights mightily for Americans for Prosperity, the Kansas Chamber and like organizations supported by the billionaire Koch brothers.

Opinion: ‘Pink’ film speaks truth to power

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

Opinion: It’s not really about Starbucks

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

Editorial: Good policy vs. bad politics

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

It’s wrong and unnecessary to connect important telemedicine legislation to the abortion debate.

Opinion: Ryan is no Margaret Chase Smith

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

House Speaker Paul Ryan will instead be remembered, sadly, for deferentially and publicly praising Donald Trump for his “exquisite presidential leadership.”

Editorial: Fixing trash billing errors

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

As frustrating as it is to consider the volume of lost revenue, it is good that the city continues to identify instances in which it is undercharging for services so that it can correct them.

Opinion: Syria strike hurts U.S. credibility

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

In 2013, after Syrian dictator Bashar Assad crossed President Obama’s red line and used chemical weapons on innocent civilians, a U.S. official told the Los Angeles Times that Obama’s retaliatory strike would likely be “just muscular enough not to get mocked” but not so devastating that it would elicit a response from Iran and Russia.

Opinion: S.D. case defies Congress, market

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

South Dakota has become what South Carolina once was: stubborn, pugnacious and wrong. In 1860, South Carolina became the first state to vote to secede.

Opinion: Firing Mueller would end Trump’s presidency

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

The genius of an Abraham Lincoln or Thomas Jefferson would be insufficient to juggle the multiple crises facing the current president over the past week:

Views from Kansas: Hold off on sports gambling

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

The U.S. Supreme Court has not yet ruled on lifting a federal ban on legalized sports betting. Such a ruling is expected later this year.

Opinion: Making excuses for the president

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 06:00:00 -0500

Our topic for the day (as if you couldn’t tell): “Excuses for Donald Trump.” Spoiler alert: There aren’t any. Unfortunately, that hasn’t stopped people from trying.

Editorial: KU leaders failing to lead

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

The University of Kansas’ response thus far to a federal indictment alleging that families of top recruits received illegal payments from Adidas to play basketball for KU is woefully lacking.

Opinion: The state of Kansas politics right now

Sat, 14 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

Early this past Sunday morning, at the last minute, Kansas legislators passed a school funding bill of more than $500 million. The Supreme Court must still rule on its constitutionality, but the frantic maneuvering of last week allows Kansans to understand a lot about state politics as we head toward the end of the session and the 2018 elections.

Views From Kansas: Raids on poor won’t pay off

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

Opinion: Consequences of a Syrian strike

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

Trump, like President Obama, is finding that it’s easier to talk about withdrawing from Middle East wars than to actually do it. When Trump takes military action in Syria, he owns the consequences.

Editorial: Botching school funding

Thu, 12 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

On a critically important matter, continued sloppy lawmaking will have dire consequences.

Thu, 12 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

Shaun King might be controversial, but he’s no terrorist.

Opinion: How to respond to chemical weapons use

Thu, 12 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

America has embarked on an audacious, not-thought-through experiment. The nation is shrugging off its post-1945 leadership on behalf of democratic pluralism that makes nations lawful and tranquil, and is upending the world trading system it created.

Views From Kansas: We need better leadership

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 00:00:00 -0500

We were disappointed this week at the political strong-arm tactics and lack of leadership shown by high-ranking members of the state Senate, namely Majority Leader Jim Denning and President Susan Wagle.
