Parker: The people and the pendulum

WASHINGTON - To paraphrase Roger Miller - and, indeed, to reveal my vast store of musical trivia - America swings like a pendulum do.

Goldberg: Narratives are more powerful than ideas

There is an enormous amount of whining these days about our ideological debates. This gets the problem wrong. Ideological debates are fought over ideas, but politics is more often about competing stories, or, as the eggheads call them, "narratives."

Krauthammer: Barack Obama, our bewildered bystander in chief

Parker: Bears and wolves have a spot on fall ballot

WASHINGTON - If politicians preying upon your attentions this season fail to inspire, you might seek common cause with the beasts - the four-legged variety rather than those running for office.

Krauthammer: Ebola threat puts civil liberties to the test

WASHINGTON - Unnervingly, the U.S. public health services remain steps behind the Ebola virus. Contact tracing is what we do, Centers for Disease Control Director Tom Frieden assured the nation. It will stop the epidemic "in its tracks."

Krauthammer: Allies playing a double game in Mideast war

WASHINGTON - During the 1944 Warsaw uprising, Josef Stalin ordered the advancing Red Army to stop at the outskirts of the city while the Nazis, for 63 days, annihilated the non-Communist Polish partisans. Only then did Stalin take Warsaw.

Parker: America faces a high-stakes election

Krauthammer: The real reason winning the Senate matters

WASHINGTON - You can win midterm elections without a positive agenda. You can't win presidential elections that way. It is therefore vitally important for Republicans to win the Senate in 2014. Here's why.

Goldberg: Obama’s ‘me’ turns to a ‘they’ based on war fortunes

It's funny how President Barack Obama is always talking about "I" and "me" whenever it makes him look good, but suddenly it's "they" and "we" when mistakes are made.

Parker: Political ‘war’ waged over just one issue

Goldberg: Phony ‘war on women’ fueled by false panic

Last Friday, the White House announced its "It's On Us" initiative aimed at combating sexual assaults on college campuses. I'm all in favor of combating sexual assault, but the first priority in combating a problem is understanding it.

Parker: Cry, you’re on hidden camera

WASHINGTON - Without prior knowledge or intent, I recently was inducted into a club I had no interest in joining, especially in light of the $200 initiation fee.

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: Will her accomplishment deficit be Clinton’s undoing?

There are plenty of reasons to believe 2016 will be a very ugly election year. Here's one more.

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: Democrats get their own taste of Obama’s arrogance

These are not good times for the Republic (and if you laughed or scratched your head at me calling America a republic, I rest my case).

Kathleen Parker: Bush’s candidacy puts family loyalty to test

You know we're off to the races when the first slip of the tongue by the presumed Republican presidential front-runner consumes the news for days and launches the primary race in earnest.

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.
