BRYAN FISCHER — Sen. Jeff Sessions faced the Senate Judiciary Committee this week in a confirmation hearing to become the next Attorney General of the United States. By all accounts, the left didn't lay a glove on Sessions in the first round, despite their repeated efforts to smear him as a racist. There is little question that Sen.

He has a genuine commitment to the rule of law, and will refrain from politicizing the office as was done under President Obama.... (more)

Lauderdale Airport shooter is a Muslim convert who years before joining the U.S. Army took on an Islamic name (Aashiq Hammad), downloaded terrorist propaganda and recorded Islamic religious music online, according to public records dug up by the investigative news site of an award-winning, California journalist.

CONSERVATIVE HQ — When evaluating the importance and veracity of a Washington story or scandal, one of the best rules to apply is the old Latin phrase cui bono or "who benefits?"

ALAN KEYES — Thanks to Abraham Lincoln's statesmanship, those who fought under the American flag in the war that ushered in the end of law-enforced slavery for blacks in the United States did so in the name of the Union. That commitment to the Union prevailed again in the 20th century when Republican Sen. Arthur Vandenberg, who was at the time the chairman of the U.S. Senate's Foreign Relations Committee, "delivered a celebrated speech...asserting that we must stop 'partisan politics at the water's edge....'"...
