Rheta Grimsley Johnson: Orphan dogs and Santa Claus

Posted 12/19/2015 in National Columns

She is a brindle mix. When I ask what kind of mix, the veterinarian says, "Well." Somebody kept the puppy about a year and a half -- again, the vet assigned an age -- found her a bother and drove to my woods in the North Mississippi hollow to put her out. In a poor county with no animal shelter or conscience, it happens.

 

Kathleen Parker: Americans must take a stand against our own extremists

Posted 12/19/2015 in National Columns

When President Obama addressed the nation after the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino, Calif., he reiterated the call to resist animus toward Muslims.

Patrick Buchanan: America first -- or World War III

Posted 12/19/2015 in National Columns

"If you're in favor of World War III, you have your candidate." So said Rand Paul, looking directly at Gov. Chris Christie, who had just responded to a question from CNN's Wolf Blitzer as to whether he would shoot down a Russian plane that violated his no-fly zone in Syria.

 

Froma Harrop: On terrorism, Cruz has no idea

Kathleen Parker: Donald Trump to the rescue

Posted 12/16/2015 in National Columns

Gee, wonder what Hillary Clinton has been up to?

 

 

Froma Harrop: Climate change issue needs a Churchill

Posted 12/15/2015 in National Columns

"This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning." Those were Winston Churchill's words of battle-weary comfort when World War II started decisively shifting in the Allies' favor.

 

 

Susan Estrich: Guns for terrorists?

Rheta Grimsley Johnson: Written under the gun

Posted 12/12/2015 in National Columns

One of my best friends in the world is going "under the knife" today, which is what my mother would have said if someone she knew was about to have an operation. I never once heard her say "procedure," which sounds more like a tax audit or a recipe for making cheese.

 

Robert Koehler: Beyond Trump: The politics of courage

Posted 12/12/2015 in National Columns

If Donald Trump can thrive politically by throwing meat to the American id, what else is possible? How about the opposite? Trump's most recent attempt to reclaim poll supremacy -- his call for "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our representatives can figure out what's going on" -- is not simply reckless and dangerous, but also starkly clarifying.

 

Kathleen Parker: Women in combat will put men at greater risk

Posted 12/12/2015 in National Columns

It is axiomatic that the White House, and not just this one, makes controversial announcements when people are otherwise distracted. Usually, this means late Friday afternoons when there isn't much time for the media to make trouble.
