Victor Davis Hanson: The Art Of National Suicide

America can still avoid sharing Europe’s fate.     But only if we take action. Because of what Europe has become, it now has few viable choices in dealing with radical Islamic terrorism. Its dilemma is a warning to Americans that we should turn away from a similar path of national suicide. After suffering serial terrorist attacks from foreign      ... MORE

Amir Taheri: The Non-Assimilation Of Muslim Immigrants Aid The Left's Quest To Destroy Traditional Western Values

Islam is actively devouring Europe.     On Tuesday, when Islamist suicide bombers blew themselves up in Brussels, killing 35 innocent people and injuring 240, the European Union’s foreign policy representative, the Italian Federica Mogherini, happened to be on an official visit to Amman, the Jordanian capital. Fighting back tears, she cut short a     ... MORE

Jesse Walker: 2015 - The Year In Fear

Exaggerating fear for political purposes.     We live an age of unprecedented danger. The country is being battered by a nationwide crime wave. Subversives are waging a guerrilla war on cops. ISIS threatens the very existence of the United States, and its agents are infiltrating the homeland through our porous southern border. Even when the   ... MORE

Glenn Greenwald: Those Demanding Free Speech Limits To Fight ISIS Pose A Greater Threat To United States Than ISIS

Because the essence of America is freedom.       In 2006 – years before ISIS replaced Al Qaeda as the New and Unprecedentedly Evil Villain – Newt Gingrich gave a speech in New Hampshire in which, as he put it afterward, he “called for a serious debate about the First Amendment and how terrorists are abusing our rights – using them as they once  ...

Thomas Sowell: Remembering 2015

The lessons we should have learned.      How shall we remember 2015? Or shall we try to forget it? It is always hard to know when a turning point has been reached, and usually it is long afterwards before we recognize it. However, if 2015 has been a turning point, it may well have marked a turn in a downward direction for America and for       ... MORE

Conor Friedersdorf: The Principled Realism Of Rand Paul

We should try it for a change.      Senator Rand Paul distinguished himself among Republicans this week by championing a more careful, pragmatic response to ISIS than any other primary candidate. So far, it hasn’t won him much support. The rise of the terrorist group has divided the GOP in an interesting way. Its neoconservative wing,        ... MORE

Please Don't Say Radical If You Mean Violent

by Sheldon Richman.   It's about time someone challenged the phrase radical Islamic terrorism. The most objectionable part is the word radical, since it is now popularly associated with aggression—violence against innocents—as an acceptable means to politico-religious ends. But nothing about the word radical implies approval of aggression or        ...

Political Correctness More Deadly Than ISIS

by Brian Joondeph.     Which is a bigger threat to America? Terrorists or political correctness? Seems like an easy answer. PC is just an idea, whereas terrorists shoot people and blow things up. But which is easier to stop or contain? I contend that if the PC movement went away, America would have a much easier time fighting terrorism. Meaning     ... MORE

Rand Paul Calls For Moratorium On Middle East Immigration

by Sandy Fitzgerald.    GOP presidential candidate Rand Paul Monday called for a "moratorium on immigration" from the Middle East, noting that the woman involved in last week's mass shootings in San Bernardino should not have been in the United States. "It appears she was dishonest on her papers to get here," the Kentucky senator told Fox News'    ... MORE

Commentator suspended. Could it be for passing federal secrets?

Thomas Sowell: The President's Speech

Clueless in D.C.     When the President of the United States asks the television networks to set aside time for him to broadcast a speech from the Oval Office, we can usually expect that he has something new to say. But President Obama's speech Sunday night was just a rehash of what he has been saying all along, trying to justify policies that have   ... MORE

Terrorists Will Not Be Welcomed At One Christian College

No gun-free zone here.    Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. urged students, staff and faculty at his Christian school to get a permit to carry a concealed weapon on campus to counter any copycat attack like the deadly rampage in California just days ago. "Let's teach them a lesson if they ever show up here," Falwell told an estimated 10,000 of   ... MORE

Walter E Williams: Can We Learn From Europe?

A valuable lesson for Americans.       Earlier this year, my column asked, "Will the West Defend Itself?" I pointed out that America's leftists and progressives believe that the U.S. should become more like Europe. I wonder whether they also want to import European policies that created barbaric extremism among its Muslim population. France's      ... MORE
