Leonard Pitts: We've already had a race war, plenty of them

Posted 8/1/2015 in National Columns

He wanted to start a race war. That, you will recall, was what authorities say white supremacist Dylann Roof had in mind when he shot up a storied African-American church in June. It might have surprised him to learn that we've already had a race war.

 

 

Kathleen Parker: The tipping point on Planned Parenthood

Posted 8/1/2015 in National Columns

It took three videos showing Planned Parenthood doctors and executives discussing the culling and retailing of aborted baby parts, but Hillary Clinton finally managed to say that she found the videos "disturbing."

 

 

Patrick Buchanan: Could Trump win?

Posted 8/1/2015 in National Columns

The American political class has failed the country, and should be fired. That is the clearest message from the summer surge of Bernie Sanders and the remarkable rise of Donald Trump.

 

 

Kathleen Parker: The coming Alzheimer's crisis in America

Posted 7/31/2015 in National Columns

Current quibbling over what Jeb Bush meant when he said it's time to phase out and replace Medicare -- as opposed to "attacking the seniors," as one woman at a recent event bellowed out -- will soon seem quaint against the realities of our future.

 

 

Kathleen Parker: The GOP's clash of ridiculous cliches

Posted 7/30/2015 in National Columns

It is good to be President Barack Obama these days.

 

 

Leonard Pitts: Police brutality is a problem for everyone

Posted 7/29/2015 in National Columns

This will not be a column about Sandra Bland, although it could be.

 

 

Other Editors: Southern Company continues scare tactics

Posted 7/27/2015 in National Columns

It is truly mind boggling what fools the Southern Co. execs in Atlanta think Mississippians are. As the power company's ill-conceived Kemper science project goes down the tube, it is resorting to the grossest of scare tactics.

 

 

Susan Estrich: The 'no shame' debate

Posted 7/25/2015 in National Columns

No one has a later term abortion because she's changed her mind about having a baby. Doctors in almost all states won't perform them for that reason; and, by the way, what kind of beasts do you think women are? Late-term abortions are tragedies, often a last resort because much-wanted babies, or their mothers, develop conditions not consistent with life.

 

 

Patrick Buchanan: 'A New Dark Age'

Posted 7/24/2015 in National Columns

"If God does not exist, then everything is permissible."

 

 

Froma Harrop: Sensitivity over at Gawker

Posted 7/24/2015 in National Columns

The truth will make you free, the more horrible the better. And the more humiliating the truth the richer you get -- certainly if you're Nick Denton, founder of the gossip-mongering website Gawker. But that was Phase One.

 

 

Kathleen Parker: Why we can't dismiss Donald Trump

Posted 7/23/2015 in National Columns

Donald Trump can't help himself. Nor can we.

 

 

Susan Estrich: The Donald

Posted 7/22/2015 in National Columns

What's wrong with the way we pick our presidents? The answer has got to be: plenty.

 

 

Leonard Pitts: Donald Trump is No. 1?

Posted 7/18/2015 in National Columns

He's No. 1?! Yes, it's an early poll and, as such, pretty near useless. Yes, Herman Cain was once number one, too, and we know what happened with that. Yes, the fact that he is number one probably reflects name recognition as much as anything else.

 

 

Froma Harrop: Online dignity: Give it up

Posted 7/18/2015 in National Columns

Three female professors at Eastern Michigan University were shocked to learn that some young scholars in their lecture hall had been on their cellphones attacking them with lewd public posts, complete with imagery. It was all done anonymously, courtesy of an unusually obnoxious social media app called Yik Yak.

 

Partick Buchanan: The GOP's Iran dilemma

Posted 7/18/2015 in National Columns

From first reactions, it appears that Hill Republicans will be near unanimous in voting a resolution of rejection of the Iran nuclear deal. They will then vote to override President Obama's veto of their resolution. And if the GOP fails there, Gov. Scott Walker says his first act as president would be to kill the deal.

 

Froma Harrop: The GOP can clear the Trump dump

Posted 7/16/2015 in National Columns

You can count on Donald Trump to spark a conversation. Not necessarily an intelligent one but a conversation.

 

Patrick Buchanan: A coming era of civil disobedience?

Posted 7/11/2015 in National Columns
