    With the news that the FBI fired Peter Strzok we can begin to see big-picture truth take shape about the bureau's role in the Hillary Clinton investigation as well as the Russia investigation.It does not look good for the leadership at the FBI. 2016 did not bring out the best in them.Director James Comey was fired, as was Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and now Strzok, an FBI senior counterintelligence agent, has been terminated after being demoted earlier. He was a lead [...]

    President Donald Trump has publicly declared trade wars "easy to win" and rebutted criticisms of his tariffs by declaring everything is "going to work out." But a preponderance of evidence shows tariffs are bad economic policy for a number of reasons — not the least of which is the cronyism they've generated.The administration's 25 percent tariff on steel and 10 percent tariff on aluminum from Canada, Mexico and the European Union were immediately met with retaliatory [...]

    Last week, The New York Times jolted Washington's political class with an opinion article by an anonymous "senior" White House official who asserted that many of President Donald Trump's top advisers are actually working to undermine his policies, which they consider irresponsible, immature and potentially harmful to national security.The piece raised several serious questions about Trump's fitness for office, the functioning of his administration, whether loyalty to him or to the [...]

    Proposals to forever change the face of schools in District 205 are on the table. The School Board is considering building plans that would cost from $40 million to to $56.4 million and would close up to three existing schools and perhaps build an addition on to the high school.The building changes have been a long time coming. In January 2017 the district presented a study that recommended nine options for the public and School Board to consider. The options ranged [...]

    Welcome, fellow Americans, welcome.At Bradley University's Renaissance Coliseum in Peoria last Tuesday, 685 new American citizens from 80 countries were sworn in during a naturalization ceremony conducted by James Shadid, chief judge of the U.S. District Court in central Illinois. This was said to be the largest such ceremony ever in Peoria, and the second largest in the nation this year.The ceremony is typically held at the federal courthouse but had to be moved to a stadium [...]

    Donald Trump is in an impossible situation in weighing what to do about credible reports that his deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein, had openly fantasized about removing the president from office.As reported by The New York Times, Rosenstein told FBI staffers that he had considered wearing a wire to catch the president in an impeachment trap, and speculated on rallying cabinet support for invoking the 25th Amendment, which provides the framework for unseating a president for [...]

    With so many people and groups having contributed to the ongoing hurricane recovery, we are somewhat reluctant to single out any one. But after being more out and about last week, we were struck by the way private businesses responded to Florence.From the gas stations and grocery stores that managed (often through creative and very-limited means) to quickly reopen, to the restaurants and entertainment venues that toiled to get up and running, providing much-needed respite for storm- [...]

    While much of the nation is focused on Nov. 6 elections, residents of the Galesburg School District have a local issue that is also deserving of immediate attention, understanding and response. The school board is tasked with deciding how best to align our school buildings for the coming decades. Current options are expected to cost up to $56 million and would likely close three schools. The window for the public to have a say in this process could close by November. The [...]

    We don't buy into the argument that "If you don't vote, don't complain." That's not the way our system of governance works. Having voted probably does give those complaints more credibility. More important, however, is the fundamental fact that our entire system of representative democracy relies on the people — the "public" in our republic — having their voices heard through the officials they elect.Anything that impedes our elected officials from being true [...]

    In 2005, the Supreme Court issued its landmark decision in Kelo v. New London, diminishing Americans' property rights. The ruling said that governments can seize your home through eminent domain, even if their intention is merely to hand the land over to private developers.Conservatives saw this as one more bad ruling from a Supreme Court that issued a whole lot of them. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was a bit more sanguine, and her famous response exemplifies the [...]

    The Register-Mail is not doing political endorsements for the Nov. 6 election. This decision breaks a long tradition for the newspaper. However, with a smaller newsroom and even more demands on editors’ time, we found it nearly impossible to have the time to meet with candidates for state representative, sheriff and Knox County Board. And meeting with candidates is the key to informed endorsements.Instead, we put our energy into hosting forums, candidate questionnaires and [...]

    The Galesburg School Board wants a 7-12 campus at the high school and may vote to approve such a plan Monday night.Board member Maury Lyon believes there’s an implied public support for closing three schools and moving 7th and 8th-graders to the high school because few community members have said otherwise. He has a point. There have been no "Save Our Schools" rallies, petitions or campaigns on behalf of the public.The lack of public reaction to the school options [...]

    Bill Higgins wrote a local letter last week that included references to former President Barack Obama’s race and religion. Specifically, Higgins wrote that Obama is “neither totally black nor African-American and he's Muslim even though he claimed to be a Christian.”Race and religion are highly charged issues. I stopped and read the section twice. Higgins seemed to be using our former president’s race (that he’s not fully African-American) and [...]

    President Donald Trump wants you to believe that some journalists are your enemy. He draws a distinction between news media and "fake news" media, a term he uses to discredit reporting that presents him in an unfavorable light. He used variations of the term more than 400 times during his first year as president, according to CNN.On Aug. 5, the President tweeted: “The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it’s TRUE. I am [...]
