Do you find it odd that almost up to the point that the Mueller report was released, John Brennan, former head of the CIA, said there would be other indictments?

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: And then they came for me

Anti-Semitism flourishes on both the far right and the far left ("Pittsburgh mourns with Jewish community, says 'hatred will never win out,'" Web, Oct. 28). On the right are the neo-Nazis and their European-style traditional racism. They are small in number and are mostly inconsequential today.

Why relations with Russia are taut and strained

Hope is hard to see in current U.S.-Russia relations. Talk abounds of a second Cold War. The phrase, however, misunderstands history. The way forward with Russia is complex, but worth the effort. Peace may emerge from shades of gray.

EDITORIAL: Blue dogs and mad dogs

How Afghanistan can take the road not taken in Vietnam

We haven't heard much about Afghanistan in the news lately. Occasionally, an American will be killed, or there will be a bombing, but the current U.S. strategy of the "Afghanization" seems to have produced a stalemate that is not necessarily a bad thing.

Toward an American national identity

Many were elated and approved President Trump's speech last month in Warsaw, Poland acknowledging the central role Western civilization plays in defining who we are and what we believe.


The Democratic National Committee has offered its "deep and sincere apology" to Sen. Bernie Sanders ("DNC -- but not Wasserman Schultz -- offers 'sincere apology' to Sanders over leaked emails."

BEN CARSON: Obama's housing rules try to accomplish what busing could not

Remember busing, that brilliant social experiment that was to usher in a new era of racial utopia in America? Undaunted by the failed socialist experiments of the 1980s, the Obama administration has recently implemented a new Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) rule designed to "desegregate" housing by withholding funds from communities that fail to demonstrate their projects "affirmatively further" fair housing.

BEN CARSON: Honoring Phyllis Schlafly, lifelong conservative

Recently, I was temporarily placed on the Southern Poverty Law Center's watch list for extremism simply because I vocally support traditional marriage. I remember thinking: When did advocating for lifelong love between one man and one woman become a hate crime? Fortunately, the group saw the folly of its ways and apologized, removing me from the list.
