I admired Richard Lugar for his creativity as a legislator, his commitment to bipartisanship, his record of public service & his civility as a human being. His legislation to safeguard nuclear materials stopped a nightmare from becoming reality. Our world is safer because of him.

In the wake of the horrific terrorist attacks against Muslim worshippers in Christchurch, my thoughts are with the victims’ families, the Muslim community, and the people of New Zealand. People of all faiths must condemn these attacks and call out those who encourage Islamophobia

In Prague to mark 20 years since the Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary joined NATO. My message is that NATO isn’t just a military alliance; it is a political alliance based on democratic values. We talk about needing to spend 2% for defense, but we need to be 100% for democracy.

So the right response to intolerance is not more intolerance or self-righteousness; it is to bring together people across the political spectrum who want to make democracy more effective. That is what I argue for in #FascismAWarning .

To be clear, immigrants, legal or not, are people who want to improve their lives. To refer to them as animals or insects is to foster hate. What’s happening in Washington and on our border is sad, wrong, and unamerican.

The only thing more stunning than the scale of Russian interference uncovered today is the fact that an American President is taking no action to protect our country against an ongoing threat. This is a dereliction of duty.

It’s a good thing Devin Nunes is not taking my course on national security decision making. I expect my students’ written work to be compelling, accurate, and unbiased. By those standards, I would have to give him an F. Let’s hope his constituents do the same in November.

70 years ago today a communist coup destroyed democracy in my native Czechoslovakia. The coup forced my family into exile, and months later we were welcomed as refugees in the USA. Ever since I’ve been a grateful American, and I’ve learned to never take democracy for granted.

70 years ago on Armistice Day my family and I arrived in America. We were greeted not by barbed wire but by the Statue of Liberty. We were given the chance to live in freedom and in return became grateful patriotic citizens. That is the America I know and want back.
