    WASHINGTON — That one of the greatest victories of World War II was a mass evacuation — more than 300,000 British and French troops taken off a beach at Dunkirk — was a preview of the industrial nature of that conflict.

    For more than a thousand years, the tribes of Europe have stared into the gunmetal-gray chop of the English Channel and thought of conquest. “We have six centuries of insults to avenge,” Napoleon said.

    Remember how some people used to talk about President Barack Obama’s rise as “post-racial?” With bracing candor, Michelle Obama has begun to open up about how post-racial her White House life wasn’t.

    WASHINGTON — Do you have a problem — trouble at work, relationship stress, or just some really hard math homework — that you can’t resolve on your own? You should turn to the man who is fixing problems for more than 300 million Americans.

    WASHINGTON — President Trump had some remarkable things to say at the inaugural meeting of his Commission to Promote Voter Suppression and Justify Trump’s False Claims, which is formally known as the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.
