WES VERNON, RA ANALYST Most Americans who pay attention to politics believe Hollywood's political influence in American life and culture is heavily weighted on the left. Steven J. Ross, a historian who teaches at the University of Southern California, begs to differ. He believes the evidence shows that while "the Hollywood left has had the political glitz ... the Hollywood right sought, won and exercised electoral power"... (more)

FRANK GAFFNEY So, where are we 10 years after 9/11? It is comforting that we have been blessed with a near-unbroken decade without further mass-casualty attacks since those that killed nearly 3,000 Americans on Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately, our government is pursuing policies that can only encourage those who aspire to do us harm to redouble their efforts... (more)

ROBERT SPENCER Ten years after 9/11, the war on terror is far from over, and we are losing it. We were attacked on Sept. 11, 2001, by Islamic jihadists who explained, in writings they left behind, that they were committing mass murder in the name of Islam, inspired by the teachings of Islam, and in defense, as they saw it, of Islam...

AUDREY HUDSON They've been accused of rampant thievery, spending billions of dollars like drunken sailors, groping children and little old ladies, and making everyone take off their shoes. But the real job of the tens of thousands of screeners at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is to protect Americans from a terrorist attack... (more)

NEWSMAX Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry has taken a lot of heat for his critical comments toward Social Security. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says that Social Security shouldn't just be jettisoned but that the Texas governor is right to call for reform.

LOOKING AT THE LEFT September 11, 2011, is the tenth anniversary of that morning in 2001 when a 7th century Arabian warriors' creed attacked the very heart of the modern world at the dawn of the 21st century. Ten years later we find America in a state of confusion and disunity concerning the meaning and lessons to be drawn from the Islamist terror attacks of 9/11... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN Are your kids learning the right lessons about 9/11? Ten years after Osama bin Laden's henchmen murdered thousands of innocents on American soil, too many children have been spoon-fed the thin gruel of progressive political correctness over the stiff antidote of truth. "Know your enemy, name your enemy" is a 9/11 message that has gone unheeded. Our immigration and homeland security policies refuse to profile jihadi adherents at foreign consular offices and at our borders... (more)

NATIONAL REVIEW If $900 billion in fiscal stimulus did not deliver us from high unemployment, perhaps another $450 billion will do the trick: That was the theory underlying President Obama's speech. The same as before, but less impressive -- which, come to think of it, isn't a bad summary of this stage of his presidency... (more)

ROBERT KNIGHT If you were the devil, what would be your most important mission, other than inventing false religions? It would be to corrupt innocent children. I'd start by kicking God out of the public schools and excising from textbooks the truth about America's deeply Christian heritage. I'd get rid of glaringly obvious ties between Christianity and the Founders' vision of unalienable rights and limited government... (more)

NEWSMAX In just over an hour, the White House press office bombarded reporters with 39 e-mails detailing the latest person to sign on to President Barack Obama's jobs plan. As a result, The Washington Post's 44 Policy and Politics blog dubbed the president the "spammer-in-chief." "The e-mails came within a 1-hour, 5-minute period between 8:32 p.m. and 9:37 p.m. That's an average of one every minute and 40 seconds," the blog reported... (more)

LIFENEWS.COM A Florida county has voted to revoke $500,000 in taxpayer funding to the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST "America's mayor," Rudy Giuliani, told a National Press Club audience Tuesday that there had been about 40 attempted/planned attacks on America in the ten years since 9/11, and he assumed there will be more. He believes future attacks on America could come at us in a form and on a level we don't anticipate. That conjecture is prescient... (more)

REUTERS President Barack Obama should say clearly and publicly the United States will use its veto on the U.N. Security Council to block any Palestinian bid to gain U.N. membership, a senior Republican lawmaker said Wednesday. Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a conservative who chairs the House Foreign Affairs Committee, made the call as Obama's administration made diplomatic moves to try to head off a Palestinian plan to gain statehood recognition at the U.N. General Assembly session that begins on Sept. 19... (more)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER There is an old saw that insanity means doing the same thing over and over, in the vain hope that the outcome will somehow change. But having seen the early reports on the jobs package that President Obama is expected to propose tonight during his speech before a joint session of Congress, it appears the chief executive is attempting a variation...

RICH LOWRY Pres. Barack Obama delivered hi s loviest speech as president in Tucson, Ariz., after the shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords. It was moving, pitch-perfect and -- in its key passages calling for civility in our political discourse -- brazenly insincere. Obama said we should be sure that "we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds." He framed his call as a way to honor the victims of the Tucson tragedy... (more)
