Here are links to just a few of the thousands of news stories I have written for other publications over my journalism career.
At a time when most people thought Donald Trump's campaign was still a joke, I sketched out a plausible scenario in which he might capture the Republican nomination.
In this story, I highlighted why Border Patrol agents believe a wall is superior to fencing along the U.S. southern border.
Amid much speculation over what new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh might mean for Roe v. Wade, this story spotlighted a pending case from Alabama that could be used to overturn the landmark decision.
When President Donald Trump threatened to cut off foreign aid to countries in Central America, I wrote about a much more important source of money from the United States -- cash wired home by foreigners living in the U.S.
In this story, I successfully forecast big losses Republicans were likely to suffer in the 2018 U.S. House of Representatives elections.
Challenging conventional wisdom, I pointed to a prediction of huge increases in family migration if a judge did not allow adults and children to be detained together. That prediction came from President Barack Obama's Justice Department.
Covering the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in the summer of 2016 was an exciting experience. Inside the convention hall, I got to witness history in the making, and outside, I had the opportunity to talk to many interesting people, from a Muslims for Trump founder to Paul Manafort.
