WASHINGTON EXAMINER — I'd like to think that if it weren't for Roseanne Barr's remark about Valerie Jarrett looking like a Muslim monkey-human hybrid that we would have spent much of this week still laughing in a resigned way about how liberals and reporters shared Obama-era photos of illegal immigrant children sleeping in cages, having wrongfully thought that they were new images of President Trump's immigration policies at work....

CAL THOMAS — The scientific, moral and theological battle between life as an "endowed unalienable" right and the evolutionary view that we are just material and energy shaped by pure chance in a random universe with no author of life, no purpose for living and no destination after we die has been won in Ireland by the evolutionists....

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — It did not come as a surprise to see that the Republic of Ireland voted to repeal their relatively strict abortion ban. What was disturbing was the large margin by which the vote passed and the zealous celebration that followed.

WES VERNON — The 1992 Republican National Convention gave a special ovation to the words of one of its speakers, Patrick J. Buchanan, who warned, "There is as religious war going on in this country.

ALAN KEYES — I fear that many people who profess to be staunch supporters of the U.S. Constitution belie that claim in the way they speak and act. In ordaining and establishing the Constitution of the United States, the people of the United States exercised the chief power of their sovereignty over themselves. The provision that declares the Constitution, and all laws and treaties made in pursuance thereof, to be the Supreme Law of the land confirms this fact.... (more)

DAN POPP — Let's say you had some fish...in a barrel...and people kept shooting them. Let's say that the fish were important to you for some reason, and you didn't want them to get shot. What would you do? Well, you might set up surveillance cameras around the barrel, and you might try to restrict access to guns. What else? Anyone have any other ideas? How about removing the barrel?... (more)

ZEROHEDGE — A photograph of two migrant children sleeping in a cage at an ICE detention facility quickly went viral on Sunday after several prominent liberals tweeted it in a white-hot rage at President Trump's immigration policy. After a laundry list of journalists and public figures angrily tweeted the photo – including CNN's Hadas Gold, NYT Mag's editor-in-chief Jake Silverstein, Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau and former LA mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, they deleted their tweets in shame when it emerged that the photo was taken in 2014, under Obama. Indeed – nobody thought to check the date on the attached article, published in June of 2014.... (more)

ROBERT KNIGHT — The culture war reached into the quiet Washington, D.C., exurban town of Purcellville, Va. last week. This is how the left makes examples out of ordinary folks in order to transform America from the "home of the brave" into a nation of people deathly afraid to speak up. Who wants to be turned into an object of hate for offending one of the left's identity groups?... (more)

JERRY NEWCOMBE — About twenty years ago, I produced a story for D. James Kennedy Ministries on the subject of a school prayer case in Santa Fe, Texas. On the one hand, many parents and ministers were eager to promote godly influence in the school district. On the other hand, the judge ruled against such influence and did so with great hostility....

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — 'Isn't it a fact that you're a scumbag?" Our contretemps over the nomenclature of government informants has me unable to shake this arresting moment from my memory. In Manhattan, about 30 years ago, I was among the spectators basking in the majesty of Foley Square's federal courthouse when we were suddenly jarred by this, shall we say, rhetorical question. The sniper was a mob lawyer in a big RICO case; the target was the prosecution's main witness, the informant.... (more)
