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."

Jonah Goldberg: There's no buzz for Romney nostalgia

In 2007, when President Barack Obama announced that he was running for president, he did it in Springfield, Ill., to highlight his supposed connection to Abraham Lincoln. He brought in his biggest fans to cheer him on.

Kathleen Parker: There are 2 sides to ponder in Obama’s Paris gaffe

If we can be serious for a moment: The president made an error in judgment by not sending someone with a higher profile than our ambassador to join world leaders Sunday at a solidarity rally in Paris. The White House has admitted the error.

Jonah Goldberg: Huckabee putting a smile on Bush’s face

Charles Krauthammer: The gas tax of $1 a gallon that pays you back

For 32 years I've been advocating a major tax on petroleum. I've got as much chance this time around as did Don Quixote with windmills. But I shall tilt my lance once more.

Jonah Goldberg: French jihadists create bad choices with attack on free expression

The vigils in Paris are moving. The hashtag plumes of #JeSuisCharlie ("I am Charlie") are endearing. The expressions of condemnation from Muslim leaders are commendable, as are the assurances of solidarity and support from Western governments.

Kathleen Parker: Al Sharpton forever stirring the race pot

Recent events from Ferguson, Mo., to Staten Island, N.Y., might prompt an observer to infer that American cops are racist and that a bigoted white populace tolerates unnecessary lethal force against minorities.

Goldberg: So who runs this country? Really no one

There's an old joke in the newspaper business, now immortal on the Internet:

Krauthammer: US gives Cuba nylons, gets nothing back

There's an old Cold War joke - pre-pantyhose - that to defeat communism we should empty our B-52 bombers of nuclear weapons and instead drop nylons over the Soviet Union. Flood the Russians with the soft consumer culture of capitalism, seduce them with Western contact and commerce, love bomb them into freedom.

Parker: A year when the joke was on us

A writer seeking profound pronouncements for a year-end column is likely instead to find herself awash in punch lines.

Goldberg: GOP candidates should show, not just tell

Hey, Jeb, Ted, Rand, Marco, Bobby, Chris and the dozen or more others I'm forgetting, here's something to write on your bathroom mirror in 2015 and beyond: The "P" in POTUS stands for "President," not "Pundit."

Krauthammer: How to fight terrorism’s lone wolves

The lone wolf is the new national nightmare, dramatized and amplified last week by the hostage-taking attack in Sydney, Australia. But there are two kinds of lone wolves - the crazy and the evil - and the distinction is important.

Goldberg: There are no superheroes in this tale, just surrender

Jonah Goldberg: Exhausted liberalism in search of a fresh face

Canaries are not very formidable birds, but they have their uses. For instance, coal miners learned over a century ago that when canaries gag and drop dead at the bottom of the cage, it's a sign that maybe there's something wrong with the air in the mine.

Charles Krauthammer: Reid showed the way to end the filibuster

I've been radicalized. By Harry Reid and Barack Obama. Goodbye moderation and sweet reason. No more clinging to constitutional and procedural restraint. It's time to go nuclear.

Jonah Goldberg: University should show more tolerance for the intolerant

I once asked my late father if he had any experiences with anti-Semitism. There weren't many. Although that was probably in part because of his scoring methodology. The Irish kids who beat up the Jewish kids in his Bronx neighborhood didn't do so because they were anti-Semitic, but because "they had to fight somebody," as my dad put it. Today, such behavior would probably be called a hate crime.

Kathleen Parker: The riddle of fighting a Middle Age war

There's a very 2001 feel to President Barack Obama's request for authorization to use military force and the nauseating sense that we'll be at war indefinitely.
