ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — On the Corner this week, the eminent Jim Talent touted (with some reservations) an essay about "moderate Islam" by Cheryl Bernard. A Rand Institute researcher, she is also a novelist, a defender of war-ravaged cultures, and the wife of Zalmay Khalilzad, the former U.S. ambassador to post-Taliban (or is it pre-Taliban?) Afghanistan. With due respect to Dr. Bernard, who does much heroic work, I believe the essay highlights what is wrong with Western academic analysis of Islam.... (more)

JIM SIMPSON — The Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades. Its agitation has provoked police killings and other violence, lawlessness and unrest in minority communities throughout the U.S.... (more)

JOHN C. EASTMAN — Every four years, as the presidential campaigns start kicking into high gear for the Iowa caucuses and early primaries in New Hampshire, South Carolina, and beyond, some partisans begin feeling desperate about their candidate's prospects. We then see a flurry of half-truths, distortions of the historical record, and downright silly claims. The latest charge against Senator Ted Cruz falls into that latter category.... (more)

CLIFF KINCAID — President Obama and Republican South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley teamed up to attack Donald Trump on Tuesday night, even though Haley was supposed to offer the "Republican response" to Obama's State of the Union address. Together they have probably only succeeded in making Trump more popular. They missed the Achilles heel of the New York billionaire -- his soft views on Russia and his reckless undermining of U.S. allies like South Korea.... (more)

ALLEN B. WEST — I had to cringe during a particularly elitist remark that left Obama's mouth during his rteary town-hall on gun control; "I believe in the Second Amendment. It is there, written on the paper. It guarantees a right to bear arms. No matter how many times people try to twist my words around -- I taught constitutional law, I know a little bit about this -- I get it."... (more)

NRA executive vice president and CEO Wayne LaPierre says that Mr. Obama has chosen to attack "what he misunderstands most about America -- the Second Amendment, gun owners and the NRA."
