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.



Other Editors: Southern Company continues scare tactics

Posted 7/27/2015 in National Columns

It is truly mind boggling what fools the Southern Co. execs in Atlanta think Mississippians are. As the power company's ill-conceived Kemper science project goes down the tube, it is resorting to the grossest of scare tactics.



Susan Estrich: The 'no shame' debate

Posted 7/25/2015 in National Columns

No one has a later term abortion because she's changed her mind about having a baby. Doctors in almost all states won't perform them for that reason; and, by the way, what kind of beasts do you think women are? Late-term abortions are tragedies, often a last resort because much-wanted babies, or their mothers, develop conditions not consistent with life.



Patrick Buchanan: 'A New Dark Age'

Posted 7/24/2015 in National Columns

"If God does not exist, then everything is permissible."



Froma Harrop: Sensitivity over at Gawker

Posted 7/24/2015 in National Columns

The truth will make you free, the more horrible the better. And the more humiliating the truth the richer you get -- certainly if you're Nick Denton, founder of the gossip-mongering website Gawker. But that was Phase One.
