Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud the Senate for approving the criminal justice reform bill known as the First Step Act. While still a bit uneasy about some details, they generally like the emphasis on teaching inmates how to live an honest life when they get out of prison and become an asset to their communities. They also wonder why President Trump is suddenly ordering the U.S. to withdraw from Syria when ISIS is badly degraded but not yet eradicated. And they shake their heads as Michael Flynn’s legal strategy backfires and the federal judge in the case embarrasses himself with false accusations and flippantly suggests Flynn is a traitor.

    You guys are wrong, we shouldn’t be in Syria. Isn’t Assad still there? Isn’t Russia still there? What are trying to do, pick a side in a civil war? Oh yeah, and we can’t afford it – we have a 20+ trillian dollar debt and annual 1 trillion dollar+ deficits. When we can no longer afford the empire we need to bring it home, and shore up our own borders which is considerably cheaper than fighting for freedom wherever there’s trouble.
