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

Posted earlier today 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 yesterday 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.



Mississippi Voices: The magnificent John Grisham couldn't beat this

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.

Posted 3/17/2018 in National Columns

There are so many things to lament about the modern world -- fracturing families, the rise of authoritarianism, the rage for torn jeans -- but there is also much to celebrate and savor.

Patrick Buchanan: Is the GOP staring at another 1930?

Posted 3/16/2018 in National Columns

After the victory of Donald Trump in 2016, the GOP held the Senate and House, two-thirds of the governorships, and 1,000 more state legislators than they had on the day Barack Obama took office.



Froma Harrop: What computers know about us and think they know
