    The Organic Industry Is in Turmoil

    Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods, the grocer that brought pricey organic food to the masses, comes during a time of turmoil in the organic industry: The Department of Agriculture is continuing to investigate the importation of millions of pounds of phony organic grains. The move is in response to a lengthy Washington Post exposé...

    Trump’s Warsaw Triumph

    Imagine that President Donald Trump gave a speech praising a strong Europe. Imagine that he called forthrightly on Russia to stop its aggression in Ukraine and join the community of responsible nations. Imagine that he embraced the mutual defense commitment, so-called Article 5, of NATO. Imagine that he extolled the role of women in our society....

    The Remarkable Life of Lubomyr Husar . . .

    How does it happen that a child growing up in eastern Galicia among Ukrainians, Poles, Moldovans, Germans, Austrians, Jews, Roma, and Armenians dodges Nazi death squads and the Red Army, learns first-hand what it means to be a “displaced person” in occupied Austria, emigrates to the United States, completes university and seminary studies before...

    Trump’s Uncontrolled Foreign Policy

    For the first two months of her job, Nikki Haley was blazing her own trail as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Sounding more like Trump’s defeated GOP primary opponents than Trump himself, she announced that sanctions against Russia would not end until Crimea was returned to an independent Ukraine. She was asked if she was on the...

    Stubborn (and Astounding)

    Today on the homepage, I conclude my series on Vladimir Kara-Murza, the Russian democracy leader who has been poisoned twice — and twice escaped death. He is only in his mid-thirties, but he has already experienced a lot (obviously). And he has a great deal to say. He says some of it in this series of ours. In today’s installment, he...

    Krauthammer’s Take: Not Listening to America ‘Has Worked Out Rather Well for the Russians’

    Krauthammer’s Take: Not Listening to America ‘Has Worked Out Rather Well for the Russians’

    Charles Krauthammer pointed out the problem with American officials thinking that they know more about Russia’s interests than the Russians do, and he also said that such thinking has had negative consequences in the Middle East: I am always a little bit wary about American secretaries of state or defense trying to instruct the Russians on...

    Krauthammer’s Take on Putin-Linked Death: ‘Installing Hot Tubs Is Not a Known Cause of Defenestration’

    Charles Krauthammer pointed out recent crimes likely committed by the Putin’s regime in Russia, and he argued that the trend of mildness toward Putin in the West harms our values and our interests:This is a malign regime. And the statement by the White house was a fairly mild one. But think about what just happened in the last couple of...

    History: “Said To” Have Happened

    I haven’t seen Bitter Harvest, the new film made about the Holodomor, the man-made famine that transformed Ukraine from bread basket to mass grave, so I have absolutely no view on its artistic merit. It may be terrible (the reviews I have read have not been kind)andnbsp;but this from Michael O’Sullivan’s review in the Washington...

    Bitter Harvest and the Bitter Present in Ukraine

    The Ukrainian term “Holodomor” has yet to enter the world’s genocide vocabulary, as “Shoah” and “Cambodia” and “Rwanda” have done. But we should hope that the world soon becomes as familiar with “the Holodomor” as it has with “the Holocaust”: not for the sake of a comparative wickedness contest and still less to deny the singular character...

    Europe: A Warning from a Friend

    Toward the end of my latest Q&A, I make an observation about Jean-François Revel: One of the reasons he wrote his books was to wake people up — to warn them, before it was too late. I believe there is something of that about James Kirchick’s new book, The End of Europe: Dictators, Demagogues, and the Coming Dark Age.Kirchick is my...
