DAVID KUPELIAN — It's not that unusual for an Islamic society. After all, the usual features are all on display -- the Muslim call to prayer, the teaching of Islam in the nation's schools to the exclusion of other religions, preferential treatment afforded Muslims by government and the courts, news coverage reflexively portraying Islam in a positive light, the rapid growth in mosque construction -- and also the disturbing cultural phenomena of female genital mutilation, "honor killings" and so on....

NEW YORK POST — Let's cut right to the chase: James Comey should have been fired immediately following his disastrous press briefing last July, in which he candidly laid out the case against Hillary Clinton over her mishandling of classified information and then refused to recommend charges....

THE HILL — Speaking to a friendly crowd at the country's largest Christian university on Saturday, President Trump told the graduating class that "in America, we don't worship government, we worship God." "America has always been the land of dreams because America is a nation of true believers," Trump told those gathered at Liberty University.... (more)

THE GUARDIAN — The global ransomware cyber-attack that targeted tens of thousands of computers in 100 countries and crippled NHS systems appears to have raised just $20,000 (£15,500) for the criminals behind it, experts working with investigators have told the Guardian.... (more)

GLENN BECK — Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has introduced a new health care bill that would purportedly repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act with only support from Republicans. Described as a one-time deal, Cruz's bill would be part of a single budget resolution that could be passed under reconciliation, which allows legislation to pass with a 51-vote majority support....

JONAH GOLDBERG — The last weekend of April delivered one of the more enjoyable spectacles of 2017. It wasn't Donald Trump's tent-revival rally in Pennsylvania. Nor was it the cotillion of self-congratulation known as the White House Correspondents' Dinner. It wasn't even the People's Climate March, which begged for some Monty Pythonesque splinter factions -- the March for People's Climate, Climate Marchers for People, whatever.... (more)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — It's official: Donald Trump really is the president. The proof: boxes of presidential M&Ms with his signature were handed out for the first time Saturday to those on Air Force One. The Examiner's Al Weaver was the pool reporter for the president's trip to Lynchburg, Va., and he wrote: "M&M boxes were handed out featuring POTUS's signature for what some poolers believe is the first time."...

CLIFF KINCAID — As noted by Peter LaBarbera of Lifesitenews.com, LGBT activists were bitter and outraged that a conservative Christian with a public policy record of opposing the LGBTQ agenda was chosen to succeed a homosexual for the job of secretary of the Army. That is why a dishonest attack on Dr. Mark Green, a West Point grad and decorated U.S. Army flight surgeon, was launched weeks ago by the Huffington Post, as well as other media and gay rights organizations....

JOAN SWIRSKY — I always thought that James Comey was a company man. As it happens, the company he heads is among the most influential, powerful, and scary companies in the world -- the Federal Bureau of Investigation. But still, a company guy. Whether working for a president on the moderate-to-conservative spectrum like G.W. Bush or for a far-left Alinsky acolyte like Barack Obama makes absolutely no difference to this type of obedient -- and also subservient -- accommodator.... (more)

PUBLIUS HULDAH — What's the real problem with our federal government? That people in Congress serve too many terms? And if we get an Amendment to limit their terms, will our Land be healed? Of course not! The real problem is that the politicians we elect ignore our Constitution -- yet we keep reelecting them.... (more)

ASSOCIATED PRESS — Dozens of countries were hit with a huge cyberextortion attack Friday that locked up computers and held users' files for ransom at a multitude of hospitals, companies and government agencies. It was believed to the biggest attack of its kind ever recorded. The malicious software behind the onslaught appeared to exploit a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows that was supposedly identified by the National Security Agency for its own intelligence-gathering purposes and was later leaked to the internet....

THE INTERCEPT — IN MID-APRIL, an arsenal of powerful software tools apparently designed by the NSA to infect and control Windows computers was leaked by an entity known only as the "Shadow Brokers." Not even a whole month later, the hypothetical threat that criminals would use the tools against the general public has become real, and tens of thousands of computers worldwide are now crippled by an unknown party demanding ransom....

The annual Social Security Administration list of 2016's 1,000 most popular baby names was released Friday. Emma took the top spot for girls for the third year in a row, followed by Olivia, Ava, Sophia, and Isabella.... (more)

CHARLES HURT — Every time the Washington political press freaks out and goes into full panic mode against President Trump, the blockbuster, Watergate-volume story always unfolds the same way. First the news starts leaking or breaking. Newsrooms from the Potomac to the Hudson become seized and fixated on every morsel of the delicious story. News flashes zing around the internet....

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — Many in the news media have already indicted President Trump for breaking some unspecified law by firing former FBI Director James Comey, which they theorize is an attempt to cover up his ties to Russia. In the immediate days and hours following Comey's unexpected firing, some news outlets and TV commentators have indicated that they're convinced Trump is guilty of something.... (more)

CLIFF KINCAID — Nobody does it better than President Donald Trump. That is, drive the media crazy. And the Washington Post has gone nuts in reacting to the firing of FBI Director James Comey.... (more)

BYRON YORK — Here's what I have been able to glean so far about the decision to fire FBI Director James Comey: During the transition, there were members of the Trump team involved with justice and law enforcement issues who felt Comey should be fired. They believed Comey had badly screwed up the Hillary Clinton investigation -- first to Trump's detriment, on July 5, when he essentially laid out an indictment of Clinton but concluded by saying no charges would be brought, and later to Trump's benefit, on Oct. 28, just 11 days before the election, when he re-opened the Clinton investigation....

MICHAEL BARONE — Why did President Trump fire FBI Director James Comey now? The answer, as my Washington Examiner colleague Byron York has argued, is that he waited until after his impeccably apolitical Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was in place as Comey's direct superior.... (more)
