LeBron and Le NBA Finals At tonight's opening game of the NBA finals , all eyes will be on the Cavalier's Lebron James , although he won't be the one seeking the spotlight. The 22-year old is credited as being the player responsible for getting the Cavaliers into the finals for the first time in their 37-year history. But he's done it his way, as a passing, scoring, team-playing guy who shatters stereotypes of what it means to be an NBA superstar. Henry Abbott writes ESPN's NBA blog, True Hoop .
"Tough on crime" rhetoric sees a revival at Sessions' DOJ The pendulum swings between treatment-focused approaches to drug abuse and tough law enforcement. Now, after years of Obama-era "reforms," President Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions wants local police freed from federal restrictions to fight another "war on drugs."
White House flip flops: NATO, Syria and China In less than 100 days, President Trump has contradicted himself on a host of foreign policy issues — Syria, NATO, China and Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

The US gets deeper into Middle East wars. What's the endgame? President Trump welcomed Egypt's President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi to the White House today… just one of the changes in America's approach to the Middle East since Barack Obama left office. We hear about that and the escalation of warfare as well as civilian casualties.
Trump's ethical conflicts pile up as transparency diminishes President Trump's refusal to reveal his income tax returns is just one example of a lack of transparency that could be hiding conflicts of interest. Other conflicts are already obvious from his appointments. And he's being sued for using his job to increase his profits.
