Paul Manafort isn't the first prominent political personage to be advised that, no matter what else he may do, never, never lie to the FBI or violate his oath to tell the truth in any other way. Because it will come back to haunt him.

The best word for this American administration may be mercurial. If not, it'll do till a better term emerges to describe its chief executive and master deal maker, Donald J. Trump, who one day is threatening the North Korean regime with fire and fury unless it abandons its nuclear weapons and the next is promising both trade and aid if only it will mend its ways.

Now it can be told, and indeed has been told by a U.S. Senate subcommittee on investigations. The last administration publicly pretended that it was standing fast against any attempt to give what may be the world's most dangerous regime--that of Iran's mullahs--access to the American financial system. Yet all the time these masterminds were working to convert $5.7 billion worth of American currency held by a bank in Oman into negotiable American assets.

The body count continues to grow as desperate migrants continue to seek some way to make it to the European continent despite all the obstacles in their peril-strewn way.

OPINION: PAUL GREENBERG: How to save education in Arkansas

posted: 06/06/2018 4:30 a.m. Discuss

A wise man named Henry David Thoreau once suggested the best way to appraise the value of an education in this frequently all too natural state. He compared it to evaluating how much a piece of real estate is worth, and how to upgrade it.

OPINION- Column One: PAUL GREENBERG: It's back! A graven image haunts the state Capitol

To hear Arkansas' secretary of state tell it, all went well at the polls in this month's primaries: The number of Arkansans voting was up over the tally recorded in 2014, which was the last time this state held an off-year election in similar, highly partisan political circumstances.

Opinion-Column One: PAUL GREENBERG: An education for the free

posted: 05/27/2018 4:30 a.m. Comments 3

John Stuart Mill, a liberal in the old and better sense of the word, once tried to explain the difference between what too many of today's upwardly mobile confuse with an education and the real thing. An educated man or woman is someone who does more than climb on the career treadmill and follow it to the heights of power, influence and wealth. Such a well-trained professional may have a title on the door and a rug on the floor, but he has mistaken what one philosopher called the bitch-goddess Success for the genuine lower-case article.

OPINION: PAUL GREENBERG: Shut up, she explains

When all else fails a campaigner, why bother with the pros and cons of the issues and all the other piffle of politics when you can simply impose a gag rule on the opposition instead? Which seems to be the campaign strategy of Her Honor Courtney Goodson, if just using the political equivalent of a truncheon can be mistaken for a strategy instead of just a desperate delusion. This decision of hers should rightly be considered less of an argument for her re-election to the state's Supreme Court but for her impeachment.

OPINION- Column One: PAUL GREENBERG: Journalism redefined by Wolfe

If aficionados of writing and writers wonder how what was once an audacious breakthrough for journalism became the standard which dominates the writing trade, they need look no further than the rise of one preternaturally talented journalist.
