As President Trump meets other NATO leaders in Brussels today, the backdrop is his role in tearing at the post-World War II order.

The N.Y. Times' Peter Baker quotes Curt Levey, president of the conservative Committee for Justice, as saying the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh will mean "a conservative court, really [for] the first time since the 1930s."
