Anti-Muslim sentiment in America must be countered

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 21:25:03 GMT

These are challenging times for Muslims.

Death and destruction from the cycle of war and terror in the Middle East have left the largest number of refugees since World War II. Islamophobia is on the rise in the United States, and the Republican presidential campaign has been laced with anti-Islamic...

Madonna and Young: Pa. voters can slow, not stop, Trump's march to nomination

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 21:52:45 GMT

Some 40 states have already voted in the presidential primary.

Finally, the presidential nomination campaigns move to the Northeast. New York votes on April 19 and five more states — including critical Pennsylvania — vote one week later.

Even now, the presidential candidates are arriving in Pennsylvania:...

Ned Rauch-Mannino: Candidates must focus more on improving industrial sector

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 21:51:00 GMT

The appreciation for our industrial sector is growing here in the Lehigh Valley, and it's built a regional dialogue on the importance of traditional American industry.

But that same dialogue has been noticeably missing on the national stage: For all of the ever-present media coverage of Election...

Heydt, Lovett and Bowning: Republicans' only choice is to support the party's nominee for president

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 14:32:14 GMT

One of the truisms of politics is not only do you get the government you vote for, but you also get the government you don't vote for. This has been proven time and time again.

We need look no further for an example than the election last fall for Allentown city controller. The Lehigh County Republican...

Jeffrey Lewis: Sen. Heinz's commitment to women's equality endures

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 14:30:14 GMT

Twenty-five years ago, on April 4, 1991, U.S. Sen. John Heinz was tragically killed when his chartered plane collided with a helicopter in suburban Philadelphia.

He strongly believed that part of his job as a senator was to look past the divisiveness of party politics and create solutions that helped...

Gerald Cross: Free state police coverage costs everyone

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 10:14:16 GMT

It's a dirty little secret of Pennsylvania local government.

Half of the commonwealth's municipalities do not pay for police protection, according to a recent Associated Press story. Instead, they receive those services free from the Pennsylvania State Police. One estimate for the cost of that so-called...

Jonathan Clark: We can conquer inequality, racism together

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 01:06:56 GMT

Some people think that because our world is interconnected through globalization, we have become more unified, meaning one's background, culture or ethnicity matters less and less. But violence continues to threaten the unity among different groups of people. Furthermore, violence is enforced as...

Curt Topper: Run state government like a successful business

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 21:20:26 GMT

A common refrain you'll hear from politicians across jurisdictions and ideologies is that we need to run government "more like a business." As a former private sector leader, I agree with this notion. I also know that Gov. Wolf, a successful businessman, shares the same goal.

So what do successful...

Noah Feldman: Obama's legal victory on immigration vulnerable

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 21:20:06 GMT

The administration of President Barack Obama just won a big legal victory for its decision to let some children of illegal immigrants remain in the country. On the surface, that might seem to augur well for the administration's efforts to ease other immigration restrictions in the face of congressional...

Chloe Taft: Bethlehem's historic renewal should continue

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 21:05:57 GMT

At the east end of the Hoover-Mason Trestle, visitors to Bethlehem can read how, in the aftermath of Bethlehem Steel's closure, city officials "initiated a revitalization effort" on the South Side that included commercial, arts and entertainment development, while in the meantime, many former steelworkers...

Charles Lane: Cruz seen as the less embarrassing GOP nominee

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 21:03:16 GMT

We now know how big the Republican Party's Donald Trump problem is: so big that some in the GOP have convinced themselves the solution is Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.

Yes, the erstwhile government-shutter-downer trails Hillary Clinton by only 3.1 percentage points in the RealClearPolitics average, as...

Ron Wolk: 2016 a reminder of the Goldwater-Eisenhower convention

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 23:21:09 GMT

For moderate Republicans worried that their party is being hijacked by an extremist, here is a story from 1964 that may (or may not) be of some comfort.

The party's apparent choice, Arizona Sen. Barry Goldwater, was no Donald Trump, but he was a far-right maverick, and he was rallying millions of...

Nathan Nascimento: People paying more in out-of-pocket costs for their health insurance

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 22:38:02 GMT

What good is health insurance coverage if you can't afford to actually use it?

Unfortunately, that's not a rhetorical question. It's one facing thousands of Pennsylvanians who are required to purchase health insurance on the Affordable Care Act's exchanges. As if rising premiums — which increased...

Evan Reibsome: Veteran documentary sheds light on nation's martial ambivalence

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 22:35:53 GMT

In an 1879 commencement address to the graduating class of the Michigan Military Academy, Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman challenged the young recruits to suppress their desire for combat, reportedly remarking that "war is hell." The veracity of such a comment, coming as it did on the heels of America's...

Thomas Meade: It's time again to question use of statins

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 20:22:39 GMT

Four years ago, I wrote a Your View on the side effects of statins, after the Food and Drug Administration issued a new warning on risks of liver disease, memory loss and Type 2 diabetes from the drug.

Now, two new studies have prompted a second commentary. One, in the American Journal of Cardiology,...

Gary Olson: What Hillary Clinton might have said in Goldman Sachs speech

Fri, 01 Apr 2016 23:38:13 GMT

Hillary Clinton refuses to release transcripts of three speeches given to Goldman Sachs for which she was paid $675,000. I've imagined a few excerpts from one, including some schmoozing caught on mic, just prior to Clinton being introduced:

Voice: Hey Hill! Great to see you!

HC: Hi, Lloyd! (Lloyd...

Berwood Yost: Poorly worded ballot questions confuse voters

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 21:24:00 GMT

Ballot initiatives are among the purest exercises in democracy we have. In Pennsylvania, legislators place a policy question on the ballot and citizens vote on whether they favor or oppose it. Clear and simple, right?

Apparently not in Pennsylvania.

In Pennsylvania, what should be a clear and simple...

Matthew Brouillette: In budget battle, Gov. Wolf takes unilateral approach

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 10:19:36 GMT

It took 267 days, two full vetoes, one partial veto and one veto threat, but Pennsylvania finally has a state budget. In letting the Legislature's budget become law, Gov. Tom Wolf conceded defeat, saying, "We need to move on." We can all agree on that.

The good news is Pennsylvanians' wallets were...
