Stewart’s Latest Op-ed in Deseret News

| Posted in Op-eds

The first amendment to the United States constitution states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” I often call this the first freedom as the Founders listed it first among the inalienable rights granted by God and protected by the constitution, yet it is currently under attack. On February 5, in an act that would have sent...

The Biggest Threat To Our Country Is Misinformation

| Posted in Op-eds

Access to the most sensitive intelligence on earth has given me a unique perspective of the threats facing America. My six years of service on the House Intelligence Committee has allowed me to travel the world, from Moscow to Western China. Because of this, I’m often asked, “What is the greatest threat facing our country?” People expect me to list China, Russia, North Korea, perhaps even socialis...

American capitalism isn’t perfect, but it is worth defending

| Posted in Op-eds

In the first two installments of this three-part series, I defended American exceptionalism and American patriotism. In this, the third and final installment, I must defend another important idea that has fallen out of favor: American capitalism. Though imperfect, free market capitalism has been an incredibly powerful force for good in the world. The combination of liberal democracy and free marke...

I’m Defending an Unpopular Idea — America is Good

| Posted in Op-eds

I want to defend a radical idea. An idea that is increasingly unpopular—mocked and sneered at by some: The United States of America is good. In fact, this country has been the greatest force for good the world has ever seen. We have sacrificed blood and treasure to free hundreds of millions of people from oppression worldwide. Free markets and liberal democracy have normalized a standard of living...

Religious liberty is at the heart of Pioneer Day

| Posted in Op-eds

July is the month in which we in Utah celebrate both the birth of the United States of America and the arrival of the pioneers in the Salt Lake Valley. I love celebrating both of these important anniversaries so close together. Our forebears who arrived in Salt Lake on July 24, 1847, like the pilgrims centuries before, were fleeing religious persecution and seeking a place where they could freely ...
