    TERRACE PARK, Ohio — Sen. Rob Portman probably will win a second term, despite the fact that he deserves it. The swarm of young people who gathered on a Saturday morning in this Cincinnati suburb to feast on doughnuts and his gratitude are among the 5,000 volunteer interns, including students from 35 campuses, who have made 3.5 million voter contacts. Portman’s supporters are a forgiving sort, undeterred by his many accomplishments and qualifications that could be disqualifying in this season of populist antagonism toward people who have actually governed.

    North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un recently ordered the execution by firing squad of a top government official for unspecified high crimes and misdemeanors against the state.

    Americans of a certain age who follow politics and policy closely still have vivid memories of the 2000 election — bad memories, and not just because the man who lost the popular vote somehow ended up in office. For the campaign leading up to that end game was nightmarish, too.

    After more than a week of conflicting accounts of Donald Trump’s views on immigration, a period of confusion marked by words such as “softening,” Trump made his intentions clear Wednesday. The line is as hard as ever, even if the policy is all over the place.

    How crazy is this? The European Commission has ruled that Apple received unfair tax breaks from Ireland, and so must pay billions in back taxes — even though some top Irish officials insist that they don’t want the money. Meanwhile, U.S. officials are angry at the European Commission, arguing that the long-delayed crackdown violated international norms — and that Apple’s billions should ultimately go to the U.S. Treasury.

    For most of the last half century the government of the Andean nation of Colombia has battled a violent insurgency led by leftist rebels who gave no quarter and expected none. The decades-long conflict killed some 220,000 people and drove 5 million more from their homes and into squalid shantytowns circling the country’s major cities — a belt of misery and deprivation that fueled the growth of powerful drug cartels, murderous right-wing death squads and a human rights catastrophe of epic proportions.

    It shouldn’t qualify as news when a university says it strives to be an intellectually unsafe space that encourages unrestricted discussion. Yet the current climate on American campuses virtually guaranteed that a letter from the University of Chicago’s dean of students to the incoming class of 2020 would generate controversy.
