Jonah Goldberg: Are we ignoring a cyber Pearl Harbor by China?

What if a team of Chinese agents had broken into the Pentagon or - less box office but just as bad - the U.S. Office of Personnel Management and carted out classified documents?

Navarrette: Sometimes it's better to take life's broken path

During graduation season, commencement speakers will often urge young people to take the road less traveled. But this year, I'd like to put in a good word for something that can be just as fruitful: the broken path.

Jonah Goldberg: Al-Qaida is out — ISIS now in

First, the good news: It turns out President Obama was right. Al-Qaida is being destroyed. One could even say he deserves some credit for this happy turn of events.

Dick Yarbrough: Feds keep close eye on columnist

Last week, Congress passed and President Obama signed legislation that will alter somewhat how federal law enforcement can monitor our phone calls in the future.

Charles Krauthammer: Candidates, step in to your designated line

The Republican nominating race is a mess: a strong field, but with 10 declared candidates and a half-dozen more to come, we need a bouncer to keep order.

Kathleen Parker: Something has to change soon

Video imagery doesn't get much worse than a white police officer throwing an African-American girl in a bikini to the ground, kneeling on her back as she cries, and drawing his gun on other teens.

Charles Krauthammer: Following up on doctors’ digital dilemma

I rarely do follow-up columns. I'm averaging one every 10 years. And while my last such exercise resulted in a written apology from the White House (for accusing me of making up facts over its removal of Churchill's bust), today's is not a complaint. It's merely a recognition that the huge response elicited by last week's column, "Why Doctors Quit," warrants both rebuttal and clarification.

Jonah Goldberg: Left plays loose, fast with gender identity

At a moment when many on the left are desperately trying to conjure up enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton's bid to become the first woman president, others on the left want to turn the word "woman" into a term of exclusion and oppression.

Jonah Goldberg: Tackling red tape with ‘lawfare’

Last week, the Nebraska legislature voted to do away with the death penalty. I think that was a mistake. But that's a conversation for another day. Instead, I want to talk about a lesson we might take from the decision.

Ruben Navarrette: Repellent condescension from the left

Liberals often say they want to take people of color and lift them up. If so, it might help to stop talking down to them.

Jonah Goldberg: ‘Smoking gun’ defense doesn’t clear Clinton

Let's say, just for kicks, you murdered your husband (or wife). Your neighbors have been suspicious ever since your nightly arguments suddenly stopped, right around the time you put something large in your trunk and drove off in the middle of the night. Now they see you driving his car and putting his suits and golf clubs up for sale on eBay. The police find your explanations implausible and contradictory, and then you tell the cops to direct all future questions to your lawyer.

Charles Krauthammer: Why do doctors quit? The new mandate of data entry

About a decade ago, a doctor friend was lamenting the increasingly frustrating conditions of clinical practice. "How did you know to get out of medicine in 1978?" he asked with a smile.

Charles Krauthammer: Iran fiasco is worst deal ever made in US diplomacy

The devil is not in the details. It's in the entire conception of the Iran deal, animated by President Barack Obama's fantastical belief that he, uniquely, could achieve detente with a fanatical Islamist regime whose foundational purpose is to cleanse the Middle East of the poisonous corruption of American power and influence.

Kathleen Parker: The mourning after, the next discussion

CHARLESTON, S.C. - By all appearances Friday morning, as thousands lined the street waiting (and wilting) for hours in 90-degree heat to enter the funeral arena where President Barack Obama was to deliver a eulogy for state Sen. Clementa Pinckney, racial unity seemed a comfortable fact of life.

Charles Krauthammer: Push to lower flag overdue, albeit rushed

After a massacre like the one at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, our immediate reaction is to do something. Something, for politicians, means legislation. And for Democratic politicians, this means gun control.

Jonah Goldberg: Grace, dignity follow violence in today's South

"Lots of folks expected us to do something strange and break out in a riot. Well, they just don't know us," the Rev. Norvel Goff told the packed, multiracial congregation of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C., on Sunday.

Ruben Navarrette: One Dreamer’s missed lesson in gratitude

Instead of a diploma, one recent college graduate should have received an "Incomplete." She seems to have missed some courses: "Gratitude 101," "Introduction to Civics" and, finally, "Flag Waving and the Importance of Context."

Charles Krauthammer: New strategy is needed for Iraq and Syria

It's time for a new strategy in Iraq and Syria. It begins by admitting that the old borders are gone, that a unified Syria or Iraq will never be reconstituted, that the Sykes-Picot map is defunct.

Kathleen Parker: Let’s give a torn city more time to grieve

Unspeakable, unimaginable, incomprehensible and unthinkable are the words we've heard and used to describe the horrific murders of nine African-Americans as they prayed in a Charleston, S.C., church, shot by a hate-filled racist on a genocidal purge.
