Backdrop for Putin summit: A pattern of Trump disrespecting allies?
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
President Trump has wanted to hold a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin for a long time, essentially from Day 1 of his tenure. The president seemed to relish his recent one-two punch of a contentious meeting with America’s chief economic partners at the G7 summit in Quebec, Canada, followed immediately by the historic and ebullient one-on-one in Singapore with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un.

Iran protests: why Rouhani's foes are backing off their hard line
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
Protests erupted anew in Iran over the weekend, with thirsty residents of the parched city of Khorramshahr raising popular pressure on President Hassan Rouhani by quickly turning their demand for water into anti-regime anger. “Under the name of religion, the thieves robbed us of everything!” echoed one chant, along with calls for the deaths of Mr. Rouhani and Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The Khorramshahr protests, a week after three days of protests in Tehran, were the latest sign of popular discontent over Iran’s faltering economy, sliding currency, and the prospect of tough new US sanctions.
As Americans celebrate Independence Day, what does it mean to be a patriot?
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
For as much as “patriotism” blooms in the national debate, there is little agreement on what it is. As an increasingly riven country chooses up tribal sides, patriotism is being used as a litmus test, but Americans can’t agree on what color passes. National Football League (NFL) players who knelt during the national anthem were accused of not being patriots.

AI can have values if not a conscience
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
Today the rapid growth of artificial intelligence (AI) raises fundamental questions: “What is intelligence, identity, or consciousness? What is being called artificial general intelligence, machines that would mimic the way humans think, continues to elude scientists.

After family separation: How to promote healing for migrant children?
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
Satsuki Ina doesn’t call them “internment camps.” The Sacramento, Calif., family therapist has another word for the government facility where she was born seven decades ago. “We were placed not in internment camps,” she says. Dr. Ina and her family were victims of the US government’s forced removal and incarceration of Japanese-Americans during World War II. She was born in the Tule Lake Segregation Center in California, while her father was held in a camp in North Dakota.
The Monitor’s collaboration with the Energy Foundation
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
The Monitor believes the solution to climate change doesn’t come from speaking more loudly or citing even more peer-reviewed science, but from recognizing why people come to climate change from such vastly different perspectives – and meeting them where they are. The Monitor’s science desk is the proud recipient of a special grant from the Energy Foundation, a philanthropic organization dedicated to “serving the public interest by helping to build a strong, clean energy economy.” You can read more about the Energy Foundation here.
EU’s migrant plan is about more than migrants
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
A good sign of a community’s bonds of affection is its ability to come together to deal with a massive influx of migrants – and a challenge to its identity. Three years after its migrant crisis began, the European Union reached an agreement Friday that shows, at the least, that it won’t allow migrant issues to split it apart. Germany’s fragile government coalition faced a threat from its interior minister that he would close German borders after July 1 if the EU did not agree to curb the flow of asylum-seekers.

With more than 3,400 officials and a president to choose, Mexico’s July 1 election is one of its largest ever.
With departure of swing vote, a pivotal moment for the Supreme Court
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
The retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy is a seismic event in American law and government, a shakeup that could orient the US Supreme Court in a different ideological direction and topple long-settled legal precedents – while raising the noise of partisanship in Senate judicial confirmations to unprecedented heights. Meanwhile, for President Trump, Justice Kennedy’s departure represents an opportunity. With this, his second Supreme Court appointment, Mr. Trump can leave a legacy that will affect America long after he leaves the Oval Office.
What Alexandria Ocasio
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
In hindsight, it makes perfect sense that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez beat Joe Crowley – a veteran, leading Democratic congressman twice her age – in the primary. Ms. Ocasio-Cortez’s youth, energy, family story, and left-wing populist message fit the working-class, Latino-majority New York district in a way that Congressman Crowley couldn’t counter. “This campaign sent a national message to all the United States that you have to work for the community,” says Ramón Ramirez, founding president of the United Dominican Coalition, standing in Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign headquarters in Queens.

How to use Justice Kennedy’s legacy in picking his replacement
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
One legacy that Justice Anthony Kennedy leaves as he retires after three decades on the US Supreme Court is some principled guidance on how to hold a dignified debate over choosing his successor. As members of the Senate arm themselves for a battle royal over President Trump’s nomination, they may want to build on, rather than ignore, his judicial legacy. When he wrote the court’s official opinions, Justice Kennedy often sought a path for many of those who lost their legal case to see their views expressed in policy.

Mongolia, women are experiencing their own #MeToo movement. A year ago, Saranzaya Chambuu says she was raped by a member of Mongolia’s parliament. According to Mongolia’s first nationwide survey on gender-based violence, 1 in 7 Mongolian women (14 percent) says she has been subjected to sexual violence by someone who is not her partner – twice as many as the estimated world average.
Court ruling a blow, not a knockout, to public unions
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
The decision, which affirmed broad free-speech rights for workers, appears certain to undercut the clout of unions representing government employees that have emerged as a bastion of labor activism. It also could inspire follow-on actions by supporters and foes of organized labor in both the public and private sector. The plaintiff, Mark Janus, who works for Illinois's state government, argued that being called on to pay unions' fees violated his free-speech rights.
In Merkel's moment of crisis, a chance to seize middle ground on migration?
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
In a corner of Germany celebrated for its bucolic charm, this Bavarian town’s lack of rolling, pastoral fields, and half-timbered houses doesn’t exactly make it a tourist destination – that is unless you ask party officials of the ruling Christian Social Union (CSU). The governor repeatedly uses the phrase “asylum tourism” for the migrants who trekked through the province during the refugee crisis in 2015 . Such harder-line proposals have divided Germany’s government, with Chancellor Angela Merkel of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) calling it counter to the open borders that are the essence of Europe.
A plan to help veterans from 'the first minute' they leave the service
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
The occasion of Chris Carter’s 23rd birthday in 2015 brought together his parents, friends, and fellow soldiers in sorrow rather than celebration. During Mr. Carter’s first tour in 2011, he lost a close friend in a bomb explosion and glimpsed the broken bodies of another soldier and an Afghan interpreter killed in the blast. After learning the news, his mother, Beth Zimmer Carter, traveled to Joint Base Lewis-McChord near Tacoma, Wash., where he was stationed.

Shifting views of seniors: less burden, more asset
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
President Trump is the most obvious example. On the Supreme Court, five of nine justices are over 65. Just eight decades ago, when the Social Security system began, 65 was codified as the start of “old age.” Now many people of that vintage may feel in the prime of life.
In travel ban decision, Supreme Court shows judicial deference to presidency
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
In one of its most significant decisions of the year, the United States Supreme Court today upheld President Trump’s travel ban executive order, ending litigation that has spanned almost the entire Trump presidency and three versions of the executive order itself. In a 5-to-4 vote along ideological lines, the high court reversed a lower court injunction blocking the order’s implementation, finding that the order both fell within the broad powers delegated to the presidency in immigration and national security matters and did not violate the Constitution’s prohibition on the establishment of a single religion.
Extending compassion beyond migrant kids

Refugee crisis: While some follow US as it disengages, others lead
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
Around the world, the number of refugees and internally displaced people continues to rise – now estimated at more than 68 million people, with more than a third of them refugees forced by conflict across international borders. The US under President Trump is sitting out the talks on an area of international policy where it long took the helm: It set an example as the largest resettler of refugees and largest donor of funds to meet the needs of the displaced, and as the world’s most powerful country it cajoled others to follow its lead and adopt its humanitarian values. The Trump administration announced in December that concerns over potential infringements on national sovereignty and border security compelled it to pull out of the negotiations, which are set to deliver a new Global Compact for Migration by the end of the year.
Will 2018 be a turning point for black candidates – and Democrats?
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
Jonathan Rosero knows who’s got his vote in Maryland’s Democratic primary for governor. “It would be making history that we might have an African-American governor,” says Mr. Rosero, a local veterinarian, as he waited for Ben Jealous to make an appearance at a get-out-the-vote event in Langley Park last week. Mr. Jealous, a former NAACP president, and Prince George’s County executive Rushern Baker emerged in a June 10 poll as frontrunners in the state’s crowded Democratic primary field.
Trump and truth: Why the media are losing the battle
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
For three years, since the day he glided down the escalator at Trump Tower to announce his presidential bid, Donald Trump has confounded the mainstream media. “First, he injects the inaccuracy into the body politic,” says Perry.
Supreme Court ruling has 'huge' implications for voting rights
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
In a decision split along ideological lines, the United States Supreme Court Monday overturned almost entirely a lower court ruling that had invalidated several political districts in Texas for harming the voting power of racial minorities. Today’s decision on racial gerrymandering in Texas veers from that pattern, experts say. Less than two years away from a new round of redistricting, it could have significant implications for voting rights lawsuits.
How immigration fuels an axis of nationalism across the West
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, world
The battle over the immigration issue in America has masked what could prove a more fundamental change internationally: the emergence of a new axis including political leaders across the Atlantic who, like President Trump, have placed an angry mix of nationalism and populism at the heart of their message. It is happening in Poland, Hungary, Austria, as well as with Italy’s newly installed populist coalition and Turkish strongman Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who was given a path to virtually unchallenged power by his latest election victory Sunday. The anti-immigrant nationalists in France, under the banner of Marine Le Pen, were dealt a blow last year by the election of President Emmanuel Macron.
