WILLIAMS: Look beyond party label to the person

On Friday night, I threw a party at one of my favorite places in Washington, the Monocle, celebrating the career of a friend, Rep. Edolphus Towns, New York Democrat, and his wife of 50 years Gwen. Published September 23, 2012

WILLIAMS: Mixed U.S. signals add fuel to fires in the Mideast

In recent days, we have witnessed an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Libya that left four Americans dead, the breach of our embassy and violent protests in Egypt, and a subsequent political spat between the White House and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Mr. Romney blasted the Obama administration for taking an apologetic stance in the wake of the attacks, pointing to a statement from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo that he described as "akin to an apology."

WILLIAMS: A convention recap – from bad to worse

The conventions are finally over. This week, Congress is back in session. One would hope that that would mean it's policy time, not politics time in Washington. Unfortunately, that hope is just as vain as President Obama's hope to lower the seas. The politicking will only intensify as we get closer to Election Day. Published September 9, 2012

WILLIAMS: Running scared

After a well-executed Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., it is now time for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. Published September 2, 2012

WILLIAMS: Chick-fil-A serving up an order of freedom fries

Is there any better way to protest against today's Democratic Party than participating in private enterprise? Only if it involves free exercise of religion, the one thing that they hate more than business. Published August 5, 2012

WILLIAMS: Politicizing grief

Anyone who reads my columns can tell you that it is one of my mantras that politics should take up as little space in your life as possible. If it doesn't, it's only out of necessity occasioned by bad government, something we have in surplus. Published July 29, 2012

WILLIAMS: Compulsion: Final step in left’s drive to ideal society

Anyone who reads my columns has heard me say before that what unites the left is a vision of an ideal society, and what unites the right is a vision of an ideal state. The left will take or use any state necessary to get to that ideal society. Published July 22, 2012

WILLIAMS: No dissent

How foolish does the media look now, after weeks of demagoguery, now that the Supreme Court has issued two huge victories for the left in one week. Published July 8, 2012

WILLIAMS: The entrepreneur's ambassador

The Jamaican ambassador to the U.S., Audrey Marks, announced this year that she would step down to return to the business world - a decision that reminded me of what our priorities as free people ought to be. Published June 24, 2012

WILLIAMS: A return to old-fashioned entrepreneurship

Have you ever stopped to think about how the breakup of AT&T revolutionized the information and communications technology market? Most people probably haven't, but in 1984, the end of the regulated monopoly ushered in an era of unprecedented competition and innovation. Published June 17, 2012

WILLIAMS: Media fog in the recall

Last week, Fox News was the first to call the Wisconsin recall election in favor of Gov. Scott Walker while NBC continued to ticker-tape blast that it was too close to call. I checked the Internet for the results of the election posted on the New York Times website and others and I noticed there was a significant lag between their calling the election for Mr. Walker and Fox News doing so.

WILLIAMS: Old phony regulations crimp financial innovations

Have you ever stopped to think about how the breakup of AT&T revolutionized the information and communications technology market? Most people probably haven't, but in 1984, the end of the regulated monopoly ushered in an era of unprecedented competition and innovation. Published June 3, 2012

WILLIAMS: The One and his pursuit of 'fairness'

As grateful as I am for President Obama's profound, nonsensical meditations on the meaning of "hope," I am even more grateful that The One has come to make the world fair, and to tell us what fairness really means. Published May 20, 2012

WILLIAMS: On gay marriage, Obama plays politics — badly

Biologists will tell you that evolution is never complete, and that it has no necessary direction; it is neither good nor bad, just something that happens. The president is supposedly done evolving on the issue of gay marriage, and it only took him 16 years — his entire political career. Published May 13, 2012

WILLIAMS: Mr. Hope and Change

Thales of Miletus, considered one of the first philosophers in history, said, perhaps jokingly, that hope is the most abundant thing in the world, because even when you have absolutely nothing, hey, at least you still have hope. Published May 6, 2012

WILLIAMS: God and Mammon

Famed pastor Joel Osteen captivated and overwhelmed our nation's capital over the weekend with more than 40,000 people at Nationals Park. His prosperity message was in full gear when he delivered his feel-good sermon to the faithful. Published April 29, 2012
