BOB UNRUH The Alliance Defending Freedom is calling out two news organizations in Arizona for making "defamatory" claims copied from the far-left and terror-linked Southern Poverty Law Center. "For the sake of its own integrity and the safety of Arizonans, 12 News and The Arizona Republic should issue an apology to ADF and retract their defamatory stories," ADF said in a statement Wednesday....

GARTH KANT Leftists claim they are fighting hate and violence, and they cite the deadly protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, as a prime example.

HERMAN CAIN You want to denounce Nazis? Here you go, America. Don't tell me again about the moral imperative to denounce Nazis if you're going to let this slide. As Rob mentioned to me when we were discussing who would write this up, the essence of Hitler's eugenics program was to filter out children who didn't have the traits deemed optimal for the Aryan race. Horrifying? Obviously. You'd have a fit if they started aborting babies for having brown skin, or - if there was some way you could tell - for being gay. And you should have that fit.... (more)

WES VERNON That kid who rammed his car into a crowd that was protesting a racist rally in Charlottesville will likely get the chair. Assuming he first gets to state his case before the bar of justice, he will meet his just desserts in this world and the next. Never mind that a rally -- even a racist one -- is protected speech, however repugnant. Of course, then you run into the question of inciting to riot. I'll let the lawyers fight that one out in court.... (more)

ALAN KEYES The headline read "Trump-McConnell smackdown foreshadows fury in 2018 primaries." But toward the end of the story comes a telling observation: A funny thing just happened on the way to this 2018 showdown, however. While pro-Trump Republicans Roy Moore and Mo Brooks are challenging appointed GOP Sen. Luther Strange in this month's Republican primary in the special election in Alabama to complete the term of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Strange just won Trump's enthusiastic endorsement....

JOAN SWIRSKY Hard to know which body is held in lower esteem, Congress or the media. But for a long time, the media thought they were invincible, based largely on their success after forming the JournOlist in 2007 -- a cabal of 400 leftists who vowed to destroy anyone who said a single bad word about the poseur "president" Barack Obama....

ROBERT KNIGHT Several Republican governors have joined President Trump in an exclusive but growing club: They are being sued by left-wing organizations for removing persistent critics from their Facebook or Twitter pages. In many cases, we're talking about trolls, the people who post inflammatory, irrelevant or offensive comments. The latest to face the trolls' wrath is Maine Gov. Paul LePage, who the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sued last Tuesday in U.S. District Court for the District of Maine on behalf of two clients who say they were unconstitutionally blocked from Mr. LePage's Facebook page....

DAILY CALLER I'm not a big fan of James Franco's work, other than Freaks and Geeks and the first 20 minutes of Pineapple Express. But I've always kind of admired his eclectic interests. He doesn't let Hollywood tell him what "movie stars" should and shouldn't do, and he gets himself into all sorts of weird, esoteric stuff.... (more)
