Jonah Goldberg: TV’s puffed-up Olympic idols live in a fantasy bubble

By now everyone knows about his transgressions. If even only some of the reports are true, Brian Williams is a serial embellisher, a self-aggrandizing fabulist.

Kathleen Parker: Anchor is sunk by his tall tales

These are tough times for NBC's Brian Williams - and tougher times for journalism.

Charles Krauthammer: Does barbarism of Islamic State have any logic?

Why did they do it? What did the Islamic State think it could possibly gain by burning alive a captured Jordanian pilot?

Jonah Goldberg: Obama’s comparison of religions' excesses defies logic

On Tuesday, the so-called Islamic State released a slickly produced video showing a Jordanian pilot being burned alive in a steel cage. On Wednesday, the United Nations issued a report detailing various "mass executions of boys, as well as reports of beheadings, crucifixions of children and burying children alive" at the hands of the Islamic State.

Jonah Goldberg: Walker is GOP’s scoop of vanilla power

Vanilla is the most popular ice cream flavor in America, not because it is the best (that would be coffee) but because it is the least objectionable. Put another way, vanilla is the most acceptable to the most people; it's not many people's favorite, but nobody hates it.

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.

Kathleen Parker: The GOP’s sacrifice of Sarah Palin

When Democrats were looking for evidence of a Republican war on women, they overlooked Exhibit A: Sarah Palin.

Charles Krauthammer: Iran emerging as an empire in Middle East

While Iran's march toward a nuclear bomb has provoked a major clash between the White House and Congress, Iran's march toward conventional domination of the Arab world has been largely overlooked.

Jonah Goldberg: There's safety in numbers; Jews are hurt by mob rule

In the wake of the terrorist attack on a kosher market in Paris, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked French Jews to come home.

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.

Kathleen Parker: Boomer Kristol calls out his own kind

One can understand why The Weekly Standard's William Kristol would try to nullify Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy, but smearing all baby boomers in the process seems a stretch of veracity in the service of a blank page.

Charles Krauthammer: Want an Iraq hypothetical? Try this one on

Ramadi falls. The Iraqi army flees. The great 60-nation anti-Islamic State coalition so grandly proclaimed by the Obama administration is nowhere to be seen. Instead, it's the defense minister of Iran who flies into Baghdad, an unsubtle demonstration of who's in charge - while the U.S. air campaign proves futile and America's alleged strategy for combating the Islamic State is in freefall.

Kathleen Parker: GOP’s top 10 list to make cut for debate

Because so many Republicans want to be president - or at least pretend they do - debate organizers have decided to eliminate the least popular from the stage based on how they rank in the latest national polls.

Jonah Goldberg: Bush stumbling so far on his ‘joyful’ run

By now everyone has had their say about Jeb Bush's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week. The consensus is that Bush misheard Megyn Kelly's "knowing what we know now" question about the Iraq war. I'm not convinced.

Ruben Navarrette: Stephanopoulos still linked to Clintons

In 1999, a week after Al Gore claimed that he created the Internet, Bill Clinton appeared at the Gridiron Club's annual dinner. Having recently been stung by a former close adviser who signed a deal with a television network and penned a memoir distancing himself from the 42nd president, Clinton joked that he, too, was an inventor: "I invented George Stephanopoulos."

Ruben Navarrette: Scott Walker dishes up twisted talk on immigration

Wisconsin is known for its cheese. But, when talking about immigration, Gov. Scott Walker is becoming famous for his whine.

Charles Krauthammer: Fast track on trade is a win Obama needs

That free trade is advantageous to both sides is the rarest of political propositions - provable, indeed mathematically. David Ricardo did so in 1817. The Law of Comparative Advantage has held up nicely for 198 years.

Jonah Goldberg: Identity politics is always tied to one's views

Imagine it's 2007 and a prominent journalist is interviewing then-Sen. Barack Obama. "Senator, people are really interested in you and your identity. I just wanted to ask you as a historical matter, when you filled out your application to Columbia, to Harvard Law School, did you list yourself as an African-American?"

Kathleen Parker: Political faith wars heat up on campaign trail

It is nearly axiomatic that presidential contests tend to shine a harsh light on conservative Christians, inasmuch as they are viewed as the Republican Party's base and are, therefore, deemed fair game.
