Patrick Buchanan: Is Trump assembling a war cabinet?

Posted 3/27/2018 in National Columns

The last man standing between the U.S. and war with Iran may be a four-star general affectionately known to his Marines as "Mad Dog."

 

 

Froma Harrop: Democrats' votes come from the center

Posted 3/26/2018 in National Columns

Recent elections give the lie to the notion that America wants fiery liberal activists to run the country -- an idea put forth mainly by fiery liberal activists. It turns out that even Democrats don't necessarily want them.

 

 

Leonard Pitts: Parkland kids are rewriting the playbook

Posted 3/24/2018 in National Columns

That has to be the explanation. As they cowered in closets, as they said goodbyes and waited, with gunfire echoing down the halls, to die, something inside stirred itself.

 

Other editors: How many Facebook-fueled abuses need to happen before the government takes online privacy seriously?

Posted 3/24/2018 in National Columns

Reports surfaced this weekend about yet another Facebook-fueled abuse of privacy, this time by an outside company trying to manipulate voters on behalf of political causes and candidates -- including Donald J. Trump in 2016.

 

Steve Chapman: To protect Mueller, Republican silence may be shrewd

Posted 3/23/2018 in National Columns

For congressional Republicans, having Donald Trump in the White House is like carrying around a vial of nitroglycerin. It can be useful in getting your way with others, but it puts you at perpetual risk of making a wrong move and being blown to pieces.

 

 

Mona Charen: A little too much reality in the show?

Posted 3/22/2018 in National Columns

Watching the parade of porn stars, reality TV contestants and former Playboy models lining up to lambaste the president of the United States, as well as the daily trove of stories of wife beating, naked nepotism, gambling and official corruption among his Cabinet members and White House staff, I was reminded of a story Bill Buckley once told.

 

 

Froma Harrop: Capital idea: Seize the oligarchs' Manhattan penthouses

Posted 3/20/2018 in National Columns

The poisoning of a Russian ex-spy in the English countryside has roused Britons to two truths: Vladimir Putin regards their country as an easy mark, but it's also an extremely pleasant place for his oligarchs to live.

Posted 3/19/2018 in National Columns

Roger Wicker is a pinko. Yes, he claims to be conservative, but every other Tuesday at 5 a.m. he goes to Nancy Pelosi's house to give her a pedicure. Mississippi's junior U.S. senator stands in the way of our great leader, Donald Trump. And the flag. Don't forget, Wicker hates Mississippi's flag.

Posted 3/17/2018 in National Columns

So someone thinks it's funny, or intimidating, or acceptable to send a letter filled with racial slurs to a public official. Wonderful. The Mississippi haters must be ecstatic. Sure, every state and country has its share of racist hate-mongers -- but, we can imagine them thinking, at least they're not Mississippi.
