Posted 10/28/2020 in National Columns

Joe Biden could have used more careful wording at that debate, but his talk of shifting the economy from fossil fuels to cleaner energy reflected a process well on its way. The transition started before Donald Trump took office and accelerated during his presidency.


Froma Harrop: Plans to just reopen are idiotic

Posted 10/22/2020 in National Columns

Froma Harrop: Some countries beat back the virus. Not ours

Posted 10/20/2020 in National Columns

Froma Harrop: The stock market likes Biden

Posted 10/9/2020 in National Columns

Guess what. The stock market seems to like Joe Biden. More precisely, investors seem to like that his lead in the polls is solid enough to lessen the prospect of President Donald Trump setting off an explosion of doubt, anxiety and possible violence if Biden wins narrowly.


Froma Harrop: What does it really mean to be pro-life?

Posted 9/29/2020 in National Columns

Some are calling Donald Trump "the most pro-life president ever." He's definitely been anti-abortion. But he's hardly pro-life.


Froma Harrop: Crime, the police and reality

Posted 9/24/2020 in National Columns

Here's a policing story with a happy ending: Deputies in Deltona, Florida, recently stopped a black jogger who fit the description of a burglary suspect. The jogger, Joseph Griffin, is a former military police officer and currently a registered nurse. Griffin knew to be calm and cooperative.

Froma Harrop: Stop talking about doomsday scenarios for election night

Posted 9/14/2020 in National Columns

All this agonizing over what may happen if President Donald Trump tries to steal the election is highly annoying. It normalizes the idea that pure aggression can so easily steamroll the democratic process.


Froma Harrop: Sweden's virus plan proves deadly. Trump's adviser likes it

Posted 9/8/2020 in National Columns

Froma Harrop: The real America is not on fire. It's sick.

Posted 9/1/2020 in National Columns

Posted 8/26/2020 in National Columns

Froma Harrop: The importance of John Kasich vs. AOC

Posted 8/20/2020 in National Columns

The Democratic National Convention gave former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican, four minutes to offer his endorsement of Joe Biden. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, left-wing media star, got only a minute and a half. The Democrats knew what they were doing.


Froma Harrop: No payroll tax, no Social Security

Posted 8/11/2020 in National Columns

Froma Harrop: How America got so inferior

Posted 8/6/2020 in National Columns

Froma Harrop: Ugly protests are Trump's only hope

Posted 7/28/2020 in National Columns

Froma Harrop: Science and innovation used to be the American way

Posted 7/14/2020 in National Columns
