Is a second American civil war possible?

Trump

Imagine that an impeachment resolution against Donald Trump passes the House. Trump claims it's the work of the "deep state." Sean Hannity of Fox News demands that every honest patriot take to the streets. Right-wing social media call for war. As insurrection spreads, Trump commands the armed...

Memorial Day in Utah is Celebrated Just Right

Steve Handy

Ah, Memorial Day … a day to pay respect to our kindred dead and enjoy a three-day weekend even as the holiday ushers in summer activities and vacations. I was feeling pretty good about my Memorial Day activities as I ate my bowl of Golden Puffs Tuesday morning. My Saturday started with a...

Is America's Racial Divide Permanent?

Patrick Buchanan

For Roseanne Barr, star of ABC's hit show "Roseanne," there would be no appeal. When her tweet hit, she was gone. "Roseanne's Twitter statement, is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show," declaimed Channing Dungey, the black president of ABC...

Where Are the Children's Days?

Laura Hollis

Here we are, wedged between Mother's Day and Father's Day, and I am thinking about that question that young children often ask around this time of year: "How come there's no 'children's day'?"

The Homefront: Those funeral potatoes just didn't make themselves

Louise Brown

Last Sunday’s family dinner included a pan of funeral potatoes, bringing on a hearty discussion about the dish with the ominous name -- and questionable pedigree. Just because Utahns call a pan load of potatoes, cream sauce, and cheese “funeral potatoes” doesn’t ensure...

DIMOND, DIANE.tif

Across the nation, parents are in the process of either welcoming their college kids home for the summer or making preparations to send them off to college in the fall. Some will be letting go of their children for the first time, excited and anxious about the next chapter of life. Let this be a...

Trump's megalomania is driving US foreign policy

South Korea Koreas Tensions-3

I spent last week at a conference in South Korea, during which time Donald Trump went from seeking a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to cancelling it, then suggesting it might be back on. "What does Trump want?" South Korean officials at the conference kept asking me. Notably, no one...

The Fundamental Reason President Trump Will Not Be Impeached

Scott Rasmussen

President Trump is in no danger of being impeached and removed from office. I say this with confidence despite having no knowledge of what Special Counsel Mueller and his team may find. That's because impeachment is a political process rather than a legal process. As a result, things that happen...
