Kathleen Parker: Time to think: August in Washington

Posted 8/15/2015 in National Columns

It is that sane and glorious time when the nation's capital dispenses its human cargo to places of origin and locations of respite. "I don't know why everyone leaves," I remarked to my neighbor. "There's so much great parking." (Don't muddle; it's a joke.) There is, indeed, great parking, as well as less traffic. With the political contingent largely gone, the Hill is as quiet as a morning after and "normal" people are dining out.

 

Patrick Buchanan: GOP elites call for purge of Trump

Posted 8/15/2015 in National Columns

In the Cleveland debate, Donald Trump refused to commit to support whomever the Republican Party nominates in 2016. Trump would be wise to maintain his freedom of action. For there is a plot afoot in The Washington Post Conservative Club to purge Trump from the Republican Party before the primaries begin.

 

Mary Sanchez: The phony, unprincipled war on Planned Parenthood

Posted 8/13/2015 in National Columns

With one careless comment, Jeb Bush revealed a fundamentally indifferent attitude toward half the U.S. electorate.

 

 

Patrick Buchanan: Taking down The Donald

Posted 8/11/2015 in National Columns

If his Republican opponents will not take down Donald Trump, Fox News will not only show them how it is done. Fox News will do the job for them.

 

 

Other Editors: Persistent and motivated voters can effect change

Posted 8/10/2015 in National Columns

We hope all the politicians are paying attention to what's transpiring in Jackson County.

 

 

Robert Koehler: If not now, when?

Posted 8/10/2015 in National Columns

Oh plaintive cry for justice, for change, for the world we must create, welling up from a tiny island nation in the Pacific Ocean. I can only pray: Let there be an authority large enough to hear it.

 

 

Kathleen Parker: Carly Fiorina's stunning debut

Posted 8/8/2015 in National Columns

Not to diminish the importance of the first Republican debate, but it felt like the first in a political survivor series. The question wasn't so much who won the prime-time skirmish but who eliminated himself to make room for Carly Fiorina -- the hands-down winner of the "Happy Hour Debate," as it was dubbed, and maybe of the larger debate as well.

 

 

Froma Harrop: Fighting climate change for real

Posted 8/8/2015 in National Columns

Time to drop this "war on coal" talk. Time to ignore the hollering by coal country politicians over President Obama's beefed-up plan to combat global warming.

 

Susan Estrich: Could Hillary Clinton lose?

Posted 8/8/2015 in National Columns

The chattering class, fed by the drumbeat of conservatives and the criticism of look-alike Republicans, is actually acknowledging that the former Secretary of State is not made entirely of Teflon. Some of her support is soft. Some Democrats don't like her. Never have.

 

Patrick Buchanan: Obama v. Bibi -- fight to the finish

Posted 8/7/2015 in National Columns

In his desperation to sink the Iran nuclear deal, Bibi Netanyahu is taking a hellish gamble.

 

 

Froma Harrop: Ethical hunters shocked by Cecil story

Posted 8/6/2015 in National Columns

That picture of Cecil the lion's corpse and the American dentist posing triumphantly over it was ghastly. Cecil had apparently been lured out of a safe haven in Zimbabwe and illegally shot.

 

 

Kathleen Parker: How will the GOP candidates tackle Obamacare on the debate stage?

Posted 8/5/2015 in National Columns

No doubt you have butterflies just thinking about Thursday's first GOP debate. I know I do.

 

 

Susan Estrich: Stunt time

Posted 8/5/2015 in National Columns

What should you look for if you happen to be one of those dedicated Americans who watches "primary" debates?

 

 

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.
