Madonna said she thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. Kathy Griffin held up a bloody severed head of President Trump. Robert De Niro said (expletive) Trump at the Tony Awards. Johnny Depp asked when was the last time an actor assassinated a president? Pelosi said she didn't…

President Donald Trump's plan to "Make America Great Again" — even against insurmountable odds — was a much-needed endeavor.

It was reported in The Sun that two teachers from a local school attended the protests to attempt to overthrow our government. If this is correct, they should be fired immediately.

Perhaps Calvin Clements should have been allowed to retract his letter before you published it. Or at least to retract the “no Democrat or Independent” statement that we now know to be totally wrong.

Referencing the article on Sunday, "Brookland case in auditors’ hands." I have several concerns with the reported issues; most everyone knows there is a procedure for old and unused state property disposal.

Less than a week after an angry mob of insurrectionists almost took over the nation’s Capitol, the beleaguered Capitol Police started requiring lawmakers to pass through metal detectors on their way to the floor of the House of Representatives.

First of all, let me say kudos to Diane Parnell for her letter of Jan. 15. It’s good to read an occasional voice of reason. I really miss the letters from Debbie Pelley.

State Sen. Dan Sullivan offered Sun readers his six self-evident truths. Some are wrong, others need qualifying.

I doubt if anyone who regularly reads The Sun's letters to the editor would mistake me for a Trump fan. But I would like to point out that Donald Trump is not this nation's most serious problem. He is merely a symptom of a much deeper problem, i.e. a culture willing, almost anxious, to elect…

Everyone knows the feeling of loss when a deeply held belief is proven false: Santa Claus, the stork and, yes, systemic voter fraud.

So, President Donald Trump has been booted off Twitter, as of now forever. Facebook also gave him the heave-ho. Apple and Google, meanwhile, have tossed the riot-friendly Parler app out of their stores.

It is a social media paradox that the loudest voices out there are the least informed, and the most likely to have their ideas picked up and passed around by other ignorant people.

There are crazy coincidences – like finding out my roommate in college had the same birthday after we had shared the same dorm room for nine months – and then there are absolutely mind-boggling coincidences.

It’s been a challenging 12 months for all of us. For the Brawner family, it’s also been full of Hope.

Let's stop referring to the traitorous, knuckle-dragging terrorists who invaded the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C., last Wednesday as "domestic terrorists" and call them what they really are — Republican terrorists.

Talk about biased double standards! Five letters to editor, two opinion columns (one from editor Chris Wessel the other Steve Brawner) in the Jan. 10 edition of The Sun. All against Trump, his supporters and the protesters.

The Trump administration in its last days designated Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism. Here is Secretary of State Pompeo’s statement:

I became so angry this Saturday morning that I thought my head would explode. I read an article that stated Gov. Asa Hutchinson “wants President Donald Trump’s administration to end.”

Well, Rick Crawford, no thanks to you, Donald Trump and the rest of his enablers, the United States is not a third-world country where mob-rule is the norm, yet.

In response to Gregory Hanson’s letter Sunday. He spoke about Rick Crawford’s changing his legacy. I have to say I disagree.

I would like to commend Chris Wessel on his column published this past Sunday in The Jonesboro Sun. So many honest and truthful observations were made. Honest and truthful are two particularly important words that have been severely lacking in the rhetoric coming from President Donald Trump …

Arkansas First District U.S. Rep. Rick Crawford's conduct as of late has proven to me that he is more interested in playing politics in our nation's capital than doing the job he was elected to do.

My comments are specific to events of the past few days, months and years. They are irrespective of political affiliation and not intended to judge groups by the actions of a few individuals.

One of the favorite tactics of Donald Trump and those who defend him is diversion. When criticized, attack the critic personally. Don’t accept fault; shift the conversation elsewhere, even if it’s false and-or unrelated.

Now does everyone understand what Hillary Clinton said about Donald Trump's "basket of deplorables?"

On Jan. 6, Republican Sen. Mitt Romney courageously responded to the insurrection of Trump voters. He spoke truth to the power of 74 million voters who cast their support for Trump.

As a constituent of District 1, I am calling for U.S. Rep. Rick Crawford to resign. He has repeatedly lied to us about the integrity of the 2020 election and because of those lies five people, including a U.S. Capitol Police officer, are dead.

Events in Washington, D.C., prove that leadership matters. That words matter. Imagine if the president had invested as much energy in dealing with COVID-19 as his re-election. We would have less cost, less suffering and he’d probably be president-elect.

The Confederate Flag is a symbol of insurrection against our imperfect union. Sedition. It remained so for more than a 150.

On Jan. 6, fascists and white supremacists stormed the U.S. capitol. People were traumatized and injured. Some died. Our center of government was attacked. The people responsible were allowed to walk out without consequence.

Opinions, they say, are worth exactly what you pay for them. No one has paid me anything but here goes anyway:
