WASHINGTON TIMES — They won't now complicate a Hillary Clinton presidency, but the emails from her time in the State Department will still trickle out over the next months as the administration tries to clean up the mess Mrs. Clinton left. Though President-elect Donald Trump has signaled that he would halt any official federal investigations into Mrs. Clinton's activities as secretary of state, groups that have driven the issue say they will continue to press the legal cases that have forced the release of tens of thousands of her emails and could still pry loose thousands more...

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — Populism? No thanks. I am not now, nor will I ever be, a populist. Evidently, that separates me from a growing number of commentators, including some conservatives, wistfully engaged in Washington's latest fad: over-interpreting Donald Trump's victory in the 2016 presidential election....

WASHINGTON TIMES — The Washington think tank that helped forge the defense views of President-elect Donald Trump says in a report that the armed forces are too small to win major wars. The Heritage Foundation's "2017 Index U.S. Military Strength" gives the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps a collective grade of "marginal" for total power compared with a top score of "very strong." It stamps its lowest grade individually on the Army, which it judges "weak."... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES — As has been seen over the last eight years, diplomacy that results in capitulation is not very effective. The key underlying factor for successful diplomacy is not just having a clear understanding of our vital strategic objectives, but also the military credibility to achieve those objectives as necessary....

TED CRUZ — Two decades of "Castro-is-dead" rumors are finally at an end. And the race is on to see which world leader can most fulsomely praise Fidel Castro's legacy, while delicately averting their eyes from his less savory characteristics. Two duly-elected leaders of democracies who should know better, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau and American president Barack Obama, are leading the way. Mr. Trudeau praised Castro as a "legendary revolutionary and orator" who "made significant improvements to the education and health care of his island nation." Mr. Obama offered his "condolences" to the Cuban people, and blandly suggested that "history will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure." Now, he added, we can "look to the future."... (more)

JANICE SHAW CROUSE — After all the anger and bitterness of this election, it's a respite to think about the eternal verities and ponder the importance of family and the traditions that unite us. Aunt Alice, age 98, died last month. She was the last of the "original" nine Crouse siblings and their spouses. With all 18 now gone, her death marks the end of an era for the remaining Crouse clan.... (more)

ALAN KEYES — Today, America is increasingly a nation in which certain opinions and groups are falsely deemed by those in power "more equal" and thus more worthy of protection than others, while those in opposition are tarred as outliers subject to persecution in the public square and even prosecuted under unjust "laws."...

WESLEY PRUDEN — What we used to call "the press," before the newspapers aspired to be part of the professional class with its inflated titles and airs, is never happy. Nor should it be. The press is a demanding and cranky lot by definition, and now they're something called "the media." Marshall McLuhan, who invented the concept if not the word, must never be forgiven.... (more)

CLIFF KINCAID — With CNN and MSNBC depicting the incoming Trump administration as the advent of a Fourth Reich, it should be obvious that the President-elect will have to go beyond his blistering tweets to cultivating sympathetic media and getting his own message out in a systematic way.
