ROBERT KNIGHT When a man shot and wounded security guard Leo Johnson at the Family Research Council (FRC) on Wednesday morning, the shooter left little doubt why. According to the FBI, Floyd Lee Corkins II fired a 9 mm Sig Sauer handgun in the lobby of the Washington-based pro-family group. He also had 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches in his backpack, plus 50 rounds of ammunition... (more)

NEWSMAX The shooting at the Family Research Council's headquarters in Washington, D.C. was the result of the liberal Southern Poverty Law Center stoking the flames by labeling the conservative Christian organization as a hate group, the group's president Tony Perkins told reporters Thursday...

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY The neoconservative Wall Street Journal's monotonously Islamophilic celebration of the "Arab Spring" has become as comically predictable as the open-borders enthusiasm that colors its coverage of illegal immigration. A fine example is the paper's profile of the general chosen by the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsi, Egypt's new president, to lead the armed forces... (more)

FRED HUTCHISON, RA ANALYST The postmodern worldview is schizophrenic. It is split in two, and the two parts contradict one another. Francis Shaeffer taught us to think of it as a house with an upper story and a lower story. There is no stairway to connect the two stories. The upper story and the lower story are walled off from one another... (more)

ANDREW NAPOLITANO We are in terrible straits this presidential election. We have a choice between a president who has posed more of a danger to personal freedom than any in the past 150 years and a Republican team that wants to return to Bush-style big government... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY Dr. James Dobson, the evangelical Christian author of "Dare to Discipline," "Bringing Up Boys," "Bringing up Girls" and dozens of other books, is telling likely GOP candidate Mitt Romney he needs to take a stand on the social issues that deeply concern conservative Americans...

JOSEPH FARAH Left-wing extremist groups are always quick to blame the right for acts of violence perpetrated by random nut jobs. In light of the shooting attack on the Family Research Council today, maybe it's time for organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center and Planned Parenthood to get a dose of their own poison...

JOHN FUND The Obama campaign told the Hill on Tuesday that it "is confident Vice President Biden will be an effective foil" for Paul Ryan despite Biden's latest gaffe. I'm not so sure, and neither are some Democrats. Biden's rhetorical belly-flop yesterday was a doozy. He first told a largely black audience in Danville, Va., that he hoped they could help Obama win North Carolina... (more)

JERUSALEM POST With the US sending clear public signals to Israel that it is opposed to military action now against Iran, and a cacophonous debate on the matter in Israel, senior Iranian officials continue to threaten Israel with destruction... (more)

NEWSMAX A security guard at the Family Research Council was shot and wounded in the arm Wednesday morning after a scuffle with a man said to be carrying a Chick-fil-A bag in the lobby of the organization's headquarters in Washington... (more)

NEWSMAX Davidson College in North Carolina is banning Chick-fil-A, becoming the first in the nation to do so, The Huffington Post reports. Students began a protest and collected nearly 500 signatures in an online petition calling for the school to stop serving Chick-fil-A at campus sanctioned events... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH Is anyone going to apologize to Michele Bachmann now? The congresswoman took a lot of heat from the media, not to mention House Speaker John Boehner and Sen. John McCain, for asking tough questions about how Huma Abedin got so close to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with a long record of intimate, family relations with the Muslim Brotherhood...

FRANK GAFFNEY A magician typically succeeds when the attention of the audience is diverted from his main activity onto some distraction. President Obama has raised this sort of deflection into a political art form. Take, for example, the matter of revelations by five members of Congress and the Center for Security Policy that there appear to be a number individuals working for or with the Obama administration with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood...

NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINE The central mantra of President Obama's campaign is false. That mantra is: "The Republicans tried their plan for the economy and it failed. I tried a new plan and it worked." As I pointed out on National Review Online yesterday, the facts are otherwise. Closing out his fourth year in office, President Obama has an 8.3 percent unemployment rate... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY In a case spotlighted as an example of "creeping Shariah" in the United States, attorneys for a Tulsa, Okla., police officer have asked for a summary judgment because a police official inside the department testified the officer was punished for exercising his rights... (more)

NEWSMAX Conservative media watchdog Brent Bozell slammed the choice of only mainstream-media correspondents to moderate this year's presidential debates, which could determine the outcome of the election. And he blames the Republican establishment for letting it happen... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN Looks like Vice President Joe Biden has been taking extracurricular Democratic jive-talking lessons. The results of condescending liberals' cynical racial-pandering attempts are, as always, seismically cringe-inducing... (more)

WALTER WILLIAMS President Barack Obama recently wrote an executive order that established a White House initiative on educational excellence for black Americans that will be housed in the Department of Education. It proposes "to identify evidence-based best practices" to improve black achievement in school and college... (more)

ALAN KEYES According to the present corrupt understanding of politics, the aim of political activity is to get elected by stitching together a sufficiently powerful coalition of interest groups. Among the relevant components of power, the most frequently discussed are money and media exposure... (more)

CLIFF KINCAID Mitt Romney's pick of a Democratic punching bag, Paul Ryan, as his vice president, enables Obama and the Democrats to shift the debate from jobs and the economy to pushing grandma off a cliff. The latter actually took the form of an anti-Republican ad on Medicare from a "progressive" group supporting Obama. It has now been resurrected for dramatic effect... (more)


August 13, 2012
JOSEPH FARAH Don't take what I am about to say wrong. I think Rep. Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney's selection as a vice presidential running mate, could have been much worse. I think Paul Ryan is a decent fellow. He's constitutionally eligible for the office -- an advantage he has over others under consideration... (more)

ROBERT KNIGHT Public figures' records are fair game in political campaigns. It's not "mudslinging" unless it's untrue or employs "derogatory personal slurs," according to the Living Webster Dictionary. If you lie or distort the facts so badly that they function as a lie, you're mudslinging. The current "Joe Soptic" TV ad by Obama supporters claiming that Mitt Romney caused a woman's cancer death fits that description... (more)
