ALAN KEYES — The spiritual "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" has reportedly become an anthem popular among British rugby fans. Recently I read an article about this noting the "solemn origins" of the song as a "slave spiritual." The article mentions that "Josephine Wright, a professor of music and black studies at the College of Wooster in Ohio" says that the spiritual's lyrics "allude to feelings of despair and a desire for release from suffering."...

LARRY KLAYMAN — Thanks to yet another runaway hack federal judge, now all of the world's 1.6 billion Muslims have a constitutional right to enter the United States -- unrestricted at any time. That is the shocking but preposterous ruling of Judge Derrick Watson in Hawaii v. Trump, issuing a temporary restraining order (TRO) against President Trump's rewritten executive order temporarily suspending travel from the world's most dangerous terrorist countries, to allow time to devise a strict means to vet potential terrorists...

WASHINGTON TIMES — Sen. Ted Cruz on Sunday said a House plan to repeal and replace Obamacare is fatally flawed because it relies on a three-pronged plan for totally gutting the 2010 law instead of killing it outright. GOP leaders have urged their troops to rally around a bill that repeals Obamacare's mandate requiring people to hold insurance or pay a tax, replaces its subsidies with refundable age-based tax credits and reels in and caps funding for Medicaid, the government insurance program for the poor....

ROBERT KNIGHT — On Feb. 2, at the National Prayer Breakfast, President Trump said, "My administration will do everything in its power to defend and protect religious liberty." Right now, he has a golden opportunity.

CLIFF KINCAID — Senate Intelligence Committee leaders from both parties -- Senators Richard Burr (R-NC) and Mark Warner (D-VA) -- have issued a disingenuous statement that "no element of the United States government" surveilled "Trump Tower." They dishonestly evade the fact that media reporting two days earlier had said that British intelligence operating at U.S. behest had likely been implicated in wiretapping Trump and Trump associates, all at the instigation of the U.S. government....

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — It is not about the executive orders. When it comes to protecting the United States from the threats posed by radical Islam, it has never been about President Donald Trump's executive orders: the first one that was torpedoed by the radical judiciary in January, and the new and improved version that was suspended this week -- the Lawyer Left having conveniently managed to shop its challenge to Barack Obama's fellow Hawaiian and Harvard Law School classmate Judge Derrick Watson....
