Lowry: Biden’s border ‘challenge’ gets worse

Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas is indisputably good at one part of his job — always referring to the migrant surge at the border as a "challenge" and never a "crisis." He visited Del Rio, Texas on Monday and refused to use the offending word about more ...

Charen: Why I’m a single-issue voter

In a few weeks, Virginia will hold an election, and I will have to make a decision. In the past, it would have been no contest. I'd have voted Republican. But now, though Terry McAuliffe leaves me cold, I will vote for him. I guess that makes me a single-issue voter. What is that issue? Take ...

Harrop: France’s agony over sub deal couldn’t be helped

About France and its submarines: Australia's decision to cancel a $60 billion contract to buy them and purchase American nuclear subs instead had to hurt. In response, France's foreign minister called the U.S.-backed move a "stab in the back," and President Emmanuel Macron recalled his ...

Goldberg: Biden’s stance will feed pandemic culture war

Maybe President Biden should handle COVID-19 the way he's handled Afghanistan. It's a strange thought, given how badly he botched the U.S. withdrawal. But at least Afghanistan Joe had a clear idea about what we needed to do. COVID Joe has no such exit strategy. He's making it up as he ...

Barone: California voters get what they deserve

The nation’s largest state has just voted in an election triggered by one of the nation’s weirdest recall processes — and the results have come out just about where they’ve been before. California Gov. Gavin Newsom was elected governor in 2018 by 62% to 38%, a result that was, ...

Lowry: 2020 is toxic for Republicans

The best indication that Larry Elder was going down hard in the California recall wasn't the polling, although that all swung the wrong way in the final weeks, but his suggestion late in the campaign that Democrats were going to steal the election. Preemptive excuse-making isn't a sign of ...

Charen: The future is female, but is that entirely a good thing?

"Men are abandoning higher education in such numbers that they now trail female college students by record levels." So declares the opening sentence of a Wall Street Journal piece that is creating quite the buzz. Here are some of the eye-popping statistics: Women now account for 59.5% of ...

Franks: We can’t let inner-city Catholic schools become extinct

A former Catholic cardinal, Theodore McCarrick, is facing trial on charges of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old boy. He is the only current or former U.S. cardinal to be criminally charged with child sex crimes. The Catholic Church has been paying millions of dollars to settle such cases for ...

Harrop: Biden applies his bragging rights to the stock market

"Biden's Stock Market Returns Continue to Trounce Trump's" reads a recent Forbes headline. Sophisticated investors know this, but most of the public may not because Democrats have this self-defeating aversion to boasting about bull markets during their watch. That seems to have changed under ...
