Andrew McCarthy, columnist for the National Review, joins Hugh Hewitt to talk about the FBI investigation that asks if President Trump is a Russian “mole.” Dennis Prager and Fox News analyst Gregg Jarrett take a look at what Prager says is, “corruption of some of the elite parts of the United States government.” Following Hugh Hewitt’s trip with National security adviser John Bolton to the Middle East, they discuss the high tension that exists there.

David Davenport: Power to the States

After 15 years of federalizing K-12 education, for example, Washington turned its back on No Child Left Behind and passed a bill returning power over schools to the states.  There’s no need for Washington to act, as Education Secretary Betsy DeVos says, as a national school board.

 

There’s discussion in Congress that the states should not only manage the trees, plants and flowers in their territory, but wildlife as well, including endangered species.

 

Welfare reform may be the next big issue and any solution is likely to create a larger role for states. Only the marijuana laws are moving the other way, toward Washington.
