Goldberg: Media overkill jams up Jersey

What a bizarre spectacle. Assuming he did not lie during his marathon news conference last week, the feeding frenzy surrounding New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will be remembered as one of those incredibly odd moments of elite journalistic hysteria that are difficult to explain to people who weren't there or didn't get it.

Krauthammer: The right response for academic anti-Semitism

Goldberg: Myths to ditch in 2014, for both sides

The Beltway consensus seems to be that 2013 was a bad year for the same reason nearly every other recent year was bad: polarization and partisanship. Personally, I can think of plenty of more important things to worry about than partisanship. Democracy is about disagreements, and partisanship is often a sign of healthy disagreement.

Navarrette: India incident creates a rift with close ally

SAN DIEGO - What Americans really need to kick off the new year is a dramatic improvement in our relations with India.

Jonah Goldberg: Saudis offer Obama a window of opportunity

Have you heard about the secret conspiracy between the Saudis and the White House? I haven't either, probably because there isn't one. But events are playing out exactly as one would expect if such a conspiracy existed.

Charles Krauthammer: Auschwitz, anti-semitism live on today in Europe

Amid the ritual expressions of regret and the pledges of "never again" on Tuesday's 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, a bitter irony was noted: Anti-Semitism has returned to Europe. With a vengeance.

Jonah Goldberg: Obama ignores reality, sticks to comfort zone

A week after his State of the Union address, political observers are still trying to figure out what President Barack Obama's game is. That's because rhetorically and substantively, he seems to be in another world.

Jonah Goldberg: Obama just repeats the same old script

It's hard to believe that was only President Barack Obama's sixth State of the Union address. It feels like he's given so many more. Maybe that's because the man seems to be constantly talking. And talking. The talking is the background noise of much of the last decade, auditory wallpaper that seems to line the corridors of everyday life.

Charles Krauthammer: World rallies, yet Obama says ‘Charlie who?’

Last Sunday, at the great Paris rally, the whole world was Charlie. By Tuesday, the veneer of solidarity was exposed as tissue thin. It began dissolving as soon as the real, remaining Charlie Hebdo put out its post-massacre issue featuring a Muhammad cover that, as The New York Times put it, "reignited the debate pitting free speech against religious sensitivities."
