MAGGIE GALLAGHER — The latest polls suggest the GOP now has only a 50-­50 chance of retaking the Senate. There needs to be a mass layoff -- of highly paid GOP consultants. Otherwise we risk a repeat of 2012, when overconfident Republicans in the middle of the worst economy since the 1970s became convinced that all they had to do to win was not be Obama. And they lost.... (more)

LAWRENCE SELLIN — Barack Obama, in his own mind, is incapable of formulating scenarios in which the United States, as a capitalist-based western democracy, succeeds. If narcissism explains Obama's personal behavior, his relationships with others, and his self-centered decision-making process, then the nexus of Marxism-Leninism, Black Nationalism, and Islam defines him politically--philosophies antithetical to the survival of the Constitution and the American republic....

DIANA WEST — I'm trying to look on the bright side of what passed for debate over another doomed effort to secure U.S. interests by embarking on the fruitless pursuit, cultivation and empowerment of Islamic "moderates," this time in Syria. We would get better results sending an expeditionary force after the Loch Ness sea monster. No matter. In deliberations resembling a stampede, we heard: The ISIS is coming, the ISIS is coming! Quick, leave our own borders undefended and save Saudi Arabia!... (more)

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — On Monday, I had a follow-up to last week's column on why members of the Obama administration and other transnational progressives deny that the Islamic State is Islamic -- viz., because they want to ally with what they call "moderate Islamists." If Americans grasp that "moderate Islamists" and violent jihadists share the same basic ideology, such an alliance becomes politically untenable.... (more)
