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: Apocalypse parade marches on America

Posted 9/18/2020 in National Columns

Hurricane Sally has just pummeled the Florida Panhandle and the coasts of Mississippi and Alabama.


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

Many of us lit candles and prayed that Sweden's approach to the coronavirus would succeed. As the rest of Europe locked down, Sweden stayed mostly open.


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

Posted 9/1/2020 in National Columns

The Kenosha, Wisconsin, police department immediately took the officer who shot Jacob Blake seven times off the streets, as city, state and federal officials investigate what happened. They also made a speedy arrest of the 17-year-old who is charged with shooting two demonstrators dead.


Froma Harrop: Stocks actually did better under Obama

Posted 8/26/2020 in National Columns

Trump supporters have been sending me short messages asking, "How is your 401(k) doing?" They are making three assumptions.


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

By the time you read this, President Donald Trump's latest economic stimulus plan may be largely forgotten. But it has revived an unpleasant idea that the right fringe has been peddling for years: killing Social Security and Medicare.


Froma Harrop: How America got so inferior

Posted 8/6/2020 in National Columns

Europe took dramatic steps to contain the coronavirus pandemic. Its shutdowns were so tight that the eurozone economy has fallen into a recession even deeper than ours.


Froma Harrop: Woke whites appropriate others' feelings

Posted 8/4/2020 in National Columns

So Trader Joe's won't cave into a 17-year-old's demand that it scrub its shelves of products named in such a way as to suggest cultural origins outside the 50 U.S. states.


Froma Harrop: Ugly protests are Trump's only hope

Posted 7/28/2020 in National Columns

It would take quite a spectacle to upstage America's humiliating failure to contain the coronavirus. It's not every day that the Bahamas labels U.S. tourists as carriers of disease to be kept out.


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

Posted 7/14/2020 in National Columns

A job making cars can be a good job. It should matter not to the autoworker whether his product runs on fossil fuels or electric battery. A national leadership looking out for the workers' future would embrace the future, which is clean-powered transportation.


Froma Harrop: Virus or economy is a futile choice

Posted 7/10/2020 in National Columns

Florida, Arizona, Texas and California are among the states that thought they could reopen early. They also got sloppy with requirements for wearing masks and social distancing. Now their ICUs are stretched to breaking with coronavirus patients.


Froma Harrop: Tulsa Showed Us the Superior Path to November

Posted 6/24/2020 in National Columns

What didn't happen in Tulsa last weekend was gratifying and a relief. The protests against racism were overwhelmingly orderly. President Donald Trump's rally also proceeded without serious incident and, notably, without much of an audience.


Froma Harrop: Defund the police? Stop abusing the language

Posted 6/16/2020 in National Columns

You know you have a stupid declaration on your hands when you have to explain what some on your side really mean. Such is the burden of Democrats trying to limit the damage from the childish demands to "defund the police."


Froma Harrop: Sweden backtracks on its low-pain pandemic cure

Posted 6/9/2020 in National Columns

Sweden offered hope that the coronavirus could be reined in without great inconvenience or economic pain. Unlike its neighbors in Scandinavia and elsewhere, Sweden didn't put its people in strict lockdown.


Froma Harrop: Christian Cooper Showed Us the Awesome Power of Self-Control

Posted 6/2/2020 in National Columns

I come here not to condemn Amy Cooper, the white woman who called police and falsely claimed that an African American man named Christian Cooper was attacking her, but rather to praise Christian Cooper, who had done nothing more than ask her to leash her dog. The confrontation happened in New York's Central Park, where dogs are supposed to be kept on leashes.


Froma Harrop: Andrew Cuomo for vice president

Posted 5/21/2020 in National Columns

Joe Biden still has time to do the smart thing and name New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo his running mate. The top two reasons would be Cuomo's proven competence managing his state's coronavirus crisis and a strong personality unafraid of that other son of Queens, President Donald Trump.


Froma Harrop: Pandemic makes end-of-life care harder

Posted 5/19/2020 in National Columns

I just lost a dear elderly friend to cancer. Home hospice workers kept him comfortable. He spent his final weeks watching spring unfold in the outdoor Eden he had nurtured for decades. He died peacefully at night with me present.
