  • PERRY/Speech and all that jazz
    Wednesday, January 11, 2017 6:00 PM This week, author, political columnist, jazz critic and – to quote his wife – “social mischief maker” Nat Hentoff passed away at his apartment in Greenwich Village “surrounded by family listening to Billie Holiday,” according to his son, Nick Hentoff, on Twitter.

    Holiday was not merely music to live for and die to; Hentoff knew her. Over the years covering the jazz scene in America from the 1950s onward he got to know many of the greats (including Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane) and the music was a passion of his life. His contributions to the music industry – magazines, books and productions – alone deserve recognition at his passing. But many, including myself, know him for his political commentary as well.

  • HARPER/Obamacare on life support
    Wednesday, January 11, 2017 6:00 PM “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan,” President Obama made those promises on multiple occasions while trying to sell the Affordable Care Act to the American people. We now know that neither of these statements turned out to be true. Obamacare has done the opposite of what the president promised when he said, “You’ll find more choices, more competition, and in many cases, lower prices.” What we are seeing across the country is fewer choices, less competition, and skyrocketing premiums. But the full story of Obamacare is more than a string of broken promises - the onerous rules and regulations are causing the law to collapse under its own weight. The simple truth is that it is hurting more people than it is helping. Just two months ago, 8 in 10 Americans told Gallup they want Obamacare either significantly changed or replaced altogether.

  • BROOKS/Bannon vs. Trump
    Wednesday, January 11, 2017 6:00 PM It’s becoming clear that for the next few years U.S. foreign policy will be shaped by the struggle among Republican regulars, populist ethno-nationalists and the forces of perpetual chaos unleashed by President-elect Donald Trump’s attention span.

    The Republican regulars build their grand strategies upon the post-World War II international order — the U.S.-led alliances, norms and organizations that bind democracies and preserve global peace. The regulars seek to preserve and extend this order, and see President Vladimir Putin of Russia as a wolf who tears away at it.

  • LOWRY/Obama’s ‘Russian reset’ failure
    Wednesday, January 11, 2017 6:00 PM President Barack Obama has finally had it with Russia. It only took eight years of cold reality — topped off by the Russian interference in the November election — to make the outgoing president almost cleareyed about the Kremlin.

    Not that Obama is ready to admit error. Asked by George Stephanopoulos on Sunday if he underestimated Vladimir Putin, Obama said no, he had only missed how cyberhacking could be used to meddle in our electoral system — in other words, it was a technical mistake, rather than a fundamental misassessment of a foreign adversary.

  • DUNCAN/‘What the law shows about our hearts’
    Wednesday, January 11, 2017 6:00 PM Open your Bible to Luke 16:14-18 as we continue our way through this gospel. Remember that the last thing Jesus was saying to His disciples and to the Pharisees around them had to do with faithfulness regarding money. You’ll also notice that the next thing that Jesus says has to do with the story of a rich man and a poor man. So the focus on the love of money is a topic that surrounds this passage. Read More
