DAILY CALLER — When it comes to alarming projections of global warming-induced sea level rise, veteran climate scientist Judith Curry says people need to cool it. "Projections of extreme, alarming impacts are very weakly justified to borderline impossible," Curry told The Daily Caller News Foundation.... (more)

ROBERT KNIGHT — Over the past few decades, secularists and leftists have mounted an aggressive effort to suppress Christianity's historical and current importance in America, and place all religions -- or no religion -- on the same level. A national survey taken in late November by Grinnell College indicates that they have been wildly successful. For example, city dwellers, young people and women are far more supportive of Muslims than of Christians. Sixty-eight percent of Democrats said employers should grant a request for prayer space by Muslims -- but only 45 percent said employers should grant a similar request by Christians.... (more)

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — In 2007, the Justice Department was in disarray. Though it was largely exaggerated, a controversy over the firing of some United States attorneys, the intrusion of politics into Justice Department hiring decisions, and White House contacts with Main Justice forced the resignation of an overmatched attorney general, Alberto Gonzales....

FOX NEWS — Former FBI Director James Comey claimed "I don't know" or "I don't remember" in response to dozens of questions concerning key details in the Russia probe, according to a lengthy transcript released Saturday of his closed-door interview with congressional lawmakers.... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY — The FBI cut off relations with the Council on American-Islamic Relations after it was named by the Justice Department a co-conspirator in the largest terrorism-funding case in U.S. history. In the trial of that case, FBI evidence showed CAIR's parent organization was founded as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States. And, along the conviction of numerous CAIR leaders on terrorism charges, an Arab Gulf state designated the organization a terrorist group.... (more)

NEWSMAX — President Donald Trump said Friday he will nominate William Barr, the late President George H.W. Bush's attorney general, to serve in the same role.

WASHINGTON TIMES — Prominent journalists gathered this week to discuss why President Trump sits in the White House and came to the following conclusion: "Gullible" voters and "unfair" coverage -- toward Democrat Hillary Clinton -- are to blame. The Recode Decode podcast this week featured NBC's Chuck Todd, Andrea Mitchell, and Hallie Jackson talking about the state of American politics. They told host Kara Swisher that Mr. Trump's campaign tricked the former secretary of state into responding to non-issues while stupid voters took care of the rest on Election Day.... (more)

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON — Former president Barack Obama recently continued his series of public broadsides against his successor, President Donald Trump. Obama's charges are paradoxical. On one hand, Obama seems to believe that he, rather than Trump, should be credited with the current economic boom and the emergence of the United States as the world's largest energy producer. But Obama also has charged that Trump's policies are pernicious and failing. Apparently, Obama believes that all of Trump's successes are due to Obama, and all of Trump's setbacks are his own....

NEWSMAX — Rush Limbaugh says the media is treating former President George H.W. Bush nicer in death than it did in life. Limbaugh made his comments on "Fox News @ Night." "They never treated him this way when he was president," he said. "They were vicious to him like they are vicious and partisan to every Republican. I think its just a vehicle for them to be able to contrast what they think [President Donald] Trump is versus the way they are telling us Bush was.... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN — Impolite question, but it needs to be asked: Is there a Republican dead body that left-wing partisans won't use to bash Donald Trump? This week's partisan corpse abusers callously exploited the passing of George H. W. Bush, America's 41st president, to get in their digs at the current commander in chief. Their vulgar level of incivility was inversely propositional to their sanctimonious calls for decency.... (more)

NATIONAL REVIEW — Former FBI director James Comey will reportedly testify to Congress in a closed-door hearing on Friday. The news comes after months of back-and-forth between Comey and the House Judiciary Committee, which had issued a subpoena requesting that Comey testify in a private hearing. The former FBI director expressed a wish to testify publicly and initiated a brief legal battle over the subpoena, accusing Committee Republicans of intending "to mislead the public and to undermine public confidence in the FBI and the DOJ," by selectively leaking bits of testimony from his private testimony....

TV NEWSER — An increasing amount of distrust in the news media is a hot topic these days. While adults and consistent news consumers are usually the focus of such studies, those who are still in school are often left out of this conversation.

WORLDNETDAILY — Facebook censored an image of Santa Claus kneeling before the baby Jesus, deeming it "violent or graphic content." The censorship was lifted Wednesday after LifeSiteNews published a report about it. Facebook had obscured the picture, explaining the "photo was automatically covered so you can decide if you want to see it," LifeSiteNews reported. Users who wanted to see the photo had to click on a button.... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY — Controversy over vaccines has been ongoing for years, with critics pointing to many injuries and deaths. In 2013, government watchdog Judicial Watch sued the federal government to obtain data related to injuries caused by a popular HPV vaccine the government has recommended for girls and boys as young as 11 despite thousands of cases of seizures, paralysis, blindness, pancreatitis, speech problems, short-term memory loss, Guillain-Barre syndrome and even death....

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON — Robert Mueller's legal team may write a damning report on Trump's ethics, based mostly on flipping minor former business associates of Trump's and transient campaign officials by threatening them with long prison sentences. So far, we know that the U.S. government decided to intervene in a political campaign to help one candidate and to smear the other -- under the pretext of Russian "collusion."... (more)

BYRON YORK — Michael Flynn has been waiting for more than a year to be sentenced. The retired three-star Army general, who spent 24 days as the Trump White House national security adviser, pleaded guilty on Dec. 1, 2017, to lying to the FBI in the Trump-Russia investigation. He agreed to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller.... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES — The turmoil sparked by French President Emmanuel Macron's proposal to boost gas taxes is just the latest example of an emerging political truism. While economists hail them as the best, most effective way to limit greenhouse gas emissions, carbon taxes are proving a tough sell for politicians who have to work and win elections in the real world....

NEWSMAX — President Donald Trump claims the fuel-tax riots in France justify his decision to yank the United States out of the "fatally flawed" Paris climate deal. "I am glad that my friend @EmmanuelMacron and the protestors in Paris have agreed with the conclusion I reached two years ago," Trump tweeted. "The Paris Agreement is fatally flawed because it raises the price of energy for responsible countries while whitewashing some of the worst polluters in the world."... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES — Liberal Democrats and environmental groups are urging the next Congress to do more to push back against the effects of climate change after watching the issue get sidelined over the first two years of the Trump administration. Sen. Bernard Sanders of Vermont hosted a town hall Monday where he and other "climate justice" warriors, including Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, warned that the longer President Trump and elected leaders refuse to address the "great crisis," the more that people, the planet and the economy will be hurt....

WASHINGTON TIMES — Glenn Beck's TheBlaze and Mark Levin's CRTV have merged to form Blaze Media -- a move the conservative media companies said has the potential to reach 165 million people. "Tens of millions of Americans have had it with the biased, ideologically-driven mainstream media outlets that sanctimoniously advance their own agendas under the guise of 'news' and 'journalism,'" Mr. Levin, who founded CRTV in 2014 and serves as its editor-in-chief, said in a statement....

NATIONAL REVIEW — Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Tuesday that Russia has 60 days to comply with a 1987 arms-control deal or the U.S. will suspend its obligations under the agreement. "We either bury our head in the sand or we take common-sense action," Pompeo said.... (more)

ALAN KEYES — There are times when passages from the sacred Scripture speak with startling accuracy about the crisis of our times. It is as if the inspired writer stands in our midst, witnessing the abandonment of truth in word and deed that more and more forcibly strives to darken and pre-empt the "faith that was once for all delivered to the saints." It has tragically become the norm to read accounts of Christ followers in the U.S. and elsewhere --... (more)
