THE RESURGENT — Suddenly, leaking classified information is in vogue and even admirable. The abject moral cowardice and duplicity of President Obama cannot be understated, pardoning those who leak classified data literally in the last 36 hours of his presidency.... (more)

NPR — The abortion rate in the United States fell to its lowest level since the historic Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision legalized abortion nationwide, a new report finds. The report by the Guttmacher Institute, a research group that supports legalized abortion, puts the rate at 14.6 abortions per 1,000 women of childbearing age (ages 15-44) in 2014. That's the lowest recorded rate since the Roe decision in 1973. The abortion rate has been declining for decades -- down from a peak of 29.3 in 1980 and 1981.... (more)

THE RESURGENT — Donald Trump is about to be sued for sexual harassment according to attorney Gloria Allred. The report from the Daily Beast cites an announcement of a press conference by Allred to take place in Los Angeles at 11:30 a.m. local time. At this point, there is no indication of who Trump's accuser is.... (more)

LIFE NEWS — A new Live Action investigation reveals that Planned Parenthood did not fulfill its promises to change after its employees were caught willing to help sex traffickers cover up abuses of young girls.... (more)

ALAN KEYES — Abraham Lincoln was a man who typified the character of many of the Americans of his time. As I wrote in a recently published article: Judging by things that he said -- even in the speeches he gave in opposition to slavery -- it's not hard to show that Abraham Lincoln was a racist, with prejudices like those of many slaveholders, who regarded him as their enemy....

JOAN SWIRSKY — In 2009, America experienced a genuine coup d'etat, exquisitely formulated and flawlessly executed after decades of planning by the socialists, communists, and jihadists among us who loathe America and have wished for nothing less than transforming our great country into a mecca of far-left, anti-American policies, punctuated by preposterous liberal constructs like political correctness and multiculturalism, and ultimately subservient to Sharia law....

CLIFF KINCAID — Echoing New York Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer's warning that the intelligence community is out to "get" President-elect Trump, a Brookings Institution expert who served in the Clinton administration says that Trump's treatment of his spies will "come back to bite him" in the form of "devastating" leaks to the media that will make him look foolish or incompetent....

LIFE NEWS — On Friday afternoon, the House of Representatives approved a Senate-passed budget resolution that is the first step in defunding the Planned Parenthood abortion business. This repeal resolution is the first step in the process to re-direct Planned Parenthood's taxpayer funding to legitimate health care entities and repeal Obamacare using the budget reconciliation procedure. President-Elect Donald Trump has promised to sign the bill into law.... (more)

BOB UNRUH — President-elect Donald Trump has released a list of possible nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court, and with his inauguration just days away, his first nomination to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia, a conservative stalwart, is expected at any time.... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES — Between 700,000 and 900,000 spectators are expected to attend this year's presidential inauguration to watch Donald Trump be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, an event expected to test security personnel and draw at least 63 different demonstration groups, according to federal law enforcement officials....

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — In the heat of the fall campaign, the commentariat got its knickers twisted over Donald Trump's vow that, if elected, he'd have his Justice Department appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton, his political rival. How remarkable, then, that the media is so indifferent to the revelation that, at the very same time, the Obama Justice Department was actively conducting an investigation of Trump.... (more)

CONSERVATIVE REVIEW — As I warned last August, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson has rushed through a designation of the nation's state and local election systems as "critical infrastructure." Why now, after the election and in the waning days of the Obama administration?... (more)

MICHAEL BARONE — On Wednesday, in his first news conference as president-elect, Donald Trump came out swinging -- against some of the media (while praising others), against the policies and performance of the Obama administration, and against the intelligence community.... (more)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — President Obama will sign off on legislation allowing retired Gen. James Mattis to serve as defense secretary despite him having only retired from the military in 2013, the White House said Friday.... (more)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer said President Obama's farewell speech this week served as an admission that he is ending his two terms with little to show for them.... (more)

CHARLES HURT — The guy is -- literally -- turning out the lights as he leaves office. Whatever you think of America's Cuban immigration policy the past half century, it was both strategic and humanitarian. With a belligerent military dictatorship 90 miles off shore, American leaders of both parties believed it vital to American interests to undercut the brutal Castro regime.... (more)

NEWSMAX — FBI Director James Comey may have broken typical protocol during the Hillary Clinton email investigation by making evidence public, but his Justice Department superiors made his job more difficult, former federal prosecutor and author Andrew McCarthy told Newsmax TV.... (more)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — The New York Times managed this week to avoid almost all references to the "March for Life" in an article about -- the "March for Life." The paper's 700-plus-word report on Kellyanne Conway's plan to address the annual gathering of pro-life activists in the nation's capital referred to the event by its proper name only once, and it's done five paragraphs into the story and in reference to an organizer's job title....

POLITICO — Top aides to Donald Trump asked House Republicans Thursday to include provisions to make child care more affordable as part of a tax reform package this year -- a sign that the incoming administration wants to move quickly to fulfill the president-elect's campaign pledge on the matter....

DAVID KUPELIAN — The Benghazi 9/11 attack that killed four brave Americans was caused by a YouTube video. Michael Brown had his hands up and shouted "Don't shoot" before Ferguson cop Darren Wilson shot him. Man-caused global warming is settled science. Bruce Jenner is a woman. Donald Trump's adviser Steve Bannon is a white supremacist. Vladimir Putin hacked America's election system and Trump is his puppet.... (more)

NATIONAL CATHOLIC REGISTER — "We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America." So declared Barack Obama in Columbia, Missouri, on Oct. 30, 2008, on the cusp of his historic presidential election. It was a bold statement, revolutionary even, surpassed only by the response of those in attendance, who, rather than pausing to reflect upon such an audacious assertion, wildly applauded. To be sure, these Obama enthusiasts would have ecstatically cheered anything he said at that moment.... (more)

PETER HECK — It is fitting that presidents give farewell messages. But given the venue and setting President Obama had chosen, it was fairly easy to surmise that this would be a final political rally and national lecture.... (more)

MATT WALSH — There's been a lot of talk over the past few weeks about Barack Obama's "legacy." I think he will be remembered for many things, none of them good, but his greatest legacy is precisely the opposite of the legacy he claimed he would leave: the utter collapse of race relations in this country....

RED STATE — t's amazing how quickly people can become conditioned. In 2008, Obama and the Democrats began telling us (again, as bad ideas never die in Washington D.C.) that America was suffering from an epidemic of people dying on emergency room floors because they don't have health insurance. WE'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING RIGHT AWAY!... (more)
