Police approach the driver's cab of a truck, in Nice, France, late Thursday July 14, 2016.  The large truck plowed through revelers gathered for Bastille Day fireworks in Nice, killing at least 84 people and sending others fleeing into the sea as it bore down for more than a mile (2 Km)  along the Riviera city's famed waterfront promenade.  The driver was killed by police and no one immediately claimed responsibility for the Thursday night attack. (NADER EL SHAFEI via AP) MANDATORY CREDIT

The smart people who study these things tell us that if ISIS is involved, the fact that ISIS is rapidly losing ground in Syria and Iraq has probably led, in its perverse way, to an increase in terror attacks to distract from the military defeats. That doesn’t make it any less important to defeat ISIS and its nihilist ideology.


House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis. meets with reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, May 26, 2016, as the Congress prepares to leave for the week-long Memorial Day recess. Ryan is still holding out on endorsing GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump. He shot down rumors that an endorsement was imminent. "I don't have a timeline in my mind and I have not made a decision and nothing's changed from that perspective," he said. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

Listening to Paul Ryan this week and recognizing the agony he is going through in having to support Trump and walk the fine line between the rhetoric of both parties, I had the crazy thought that maybe one day, I will be able to vote for him at the top of the ticket.
