BOB UNRUH — The instruction and training materials used by the Broward County Sheriff's Office teach that, in the case of a school shooting, deputies arriving on the scene should immediately confront the shooter. "History shows that when a suspect is confronted by any armed individual (police, security, concealed carry person) they either shoot it out with that person or kill themselves," the materials state. "Either way, the shooting of innocent bystanders must stop.... (more)

ART MOORE — It didn't take long for the horrific, deadly collapse Thursday of a newly installed pedestrian bridge at Florida International University's Miami-Dade campus to become politicized. On Twitter, President Trump is being blamed for wanting to build a wall while "our infrastructures are falling apart, for going out of his way to loosen building regulations and passing a tax-cut bill instead of doing "some REAL work for the country."...

GEORGE WILL — Iceland must be pleased that it is close to success in its program of genocide, but before congratulating that nation on its final solution to the Down syndrome problem, perhaps it might answer a question: What is this problem? To help understand why some people might ask this question, today's column is being distributed together with two photographs. One is of Agusta, age eight, a citizen of Iceland. The other is of Lucas, age one, an American citizen in Dalton, Ga., who recently was selected to be 2018 Spokesbaby for the Gerber baby-food company. They are two examples of the problem.... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH — The data are in on Facebook's war on "conservative" news sites, thanks to an impressive report published by WesternJournal.com. The king of social media has been making algorithm changes seemingly intended to marginalize the traffic of right-of-center online news operations, and they have been effective, the report shows....

WASHINGTON TIMES — Soaring tuition costs, degrees of dubious value and nonstop student activism have combined to bring public confidence in the ivory tower tumbling down. Even college and university presidents acknowledge that the country is becoming disillusioned with higher education. In a recent survey conducted by Inside Higher Ed and Gallup, 51 percent of institution leaders said the 2016 election "exposed that academe is disconnected from much of American society."... (more)

BOB UNRUH — Amid an ongoing surge in Christianity that developed as communism created a spiritual vacuum in people's lives, China has launched a new crackdown, including rules introduced last month that further restrict the activities of unregistered house churches, according to a new report. Christians in China have been repressed ever since the People's Republic was created in 1949, with the government's control of churches and imposition of the Communist Party's atheistic values....

U.S. NEWS — Eleven Republicans stepped forward before a Thursday evening filing deadline to challenge former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in the Utah Senate race, including a state lawmaker who says an "establishment insider" can't fix problems in Washington. Many of the candidates acknowledge the David-vs-Goliath nature of challenging the famous and popular Romney, but they say someone needs to keep the race to replace Republican Orrin Hatch from becoming a "coronation."...

FOX NEWS — Broward Deputy Scot Peterson stands safely behind a concrete wall taking no action as high school students lay dead and wounded just feet away, newly released video of the Florida school shooting shows. The Broward Sheriff's Office released the 27-minute video Thursday of the former longtime resource officer responding to initial reports of a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14.

BOB UNRUH — The results may not be official for some time, but it appears that a Democrat, Conor Lamb, now leading by only a few hundred votes, may have won a special election in a western Pennsylvania congressional district that two years ago chose President Donald Trump by 20 points. Mainstream media regard the apparent outcome as an "unmistakable good sign" for Democrats ahead of the 2018 midterms approach.... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES — The White House's suspicions over the motives of besieged FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe go back at least to the first months of President Trump's presidency.

WASHINGTON TIMES — Public confidence in American universities has eroded in recent years, and campus administrators have taken notice, blaming not only the high cost of a 4-year degree but the impact of liberal bias in the academy, a new survey of college presidents finds. "Asked to assess which of several factors were most responsible for declining public support, 98 percent of college and university presidents cited 'concerns about college affordability and student debt', 95 percent said 'concerns over whether higher education prepares students for careers,' and 86 percent cited the perception of liberal political bias," reports an extensive new poll from Inside Higher Ed, an independent media company and industry source which tracks higher education....

WASHINGTON TIMES — President Trump's firing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was crude, rude and way overdue. The president, not the president's chief of staff, should have been the first to inform Mr. Tillerson personally and in private, that he is getting the heave-ho. Mr. Trump should have let him have time to prepare his own face-saving announcement.... (more)

BOB UNRUH — When President Obama and his Democratic colleagues in Congress adopted Obamacare, they required abortion coverage, with no exemptions, to the delight of the abortion industry. They later were forced to exempt a few types of organizations, such as churches. The U.S. Supreme Court ordered the government to expand those exemptions when it ruled in the Hobby Lobby case, and President Trump widen the exemptions even further.... (more)

BYRON YORK — It has long been the key question of the Trump-Russia affair: Did Donald Trump's presidential campaign collude with Russia to influence the 2016 election? Now, we have the first official, albeit partisan, answer. "We have found no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians," said Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee Monday as they released findings from a 14-month Trump-Russia investigation....
